    A Yazidi woman who fled captivity at the hands of the Islamic State terror group has claimed that hundreds of others are taking their own lives rather than be subjected to sex slavery by the jihadists. "We just want them to be rescued," Ameena Saeed Hasan said in a CNN report. "Hundreds of girls have committed suicide.

    While the US has certainly made some epic strategic blunders in Syria that raise serious questions about just how “intelligent” US intelligence actually is, there’s little doubt that if one were to look behind all of the media parroting, the Pentagon and Langley understand all too well what’s going on in the Middle East. That is, the significance of the Russia-Iran “nexus” in Syria isn’t lost on anyone in the US military and you can bet there have been quite a few high level discussions over the past 72 hours about the best way to counter Moscow and Tehran’s powerplay...

    Russia's launch of airstrikes in Syria is prompting discussions within the Pentagon about whether the U.S. should use military force to protect U.S.-trained and equipped Syrian rebels if they come under fire by the Russians. U.S. officials said Thursday that senior military leaders and defense officials are working through the thorny legal and foreign policy issues and are weighing the risks of using force in response to a Russian attack.

    The man poised to be the next House speaker said Monday that the U.S. needs to assume a more aggressive posture around the world, saying the key to foreign policy is making it “painful” for countries to misbehave. Rep. Kevin McCarthy backed calls for a U.S.-enforced no-fly zone over Syria, saying it would boost the fight against the Islamic State rebels and also curtail the Syrian regime’s ability to strike its own citizens.

    Executive Summary The Iranian nuclear deal is a full capitulation to Iran’s terrorist mastermind Mullahs, and the latest in a series of betrayals of the American people and allies by the Obama administration. At the highest level of the administration, Barack Obama’s Senior Advisor, the Iranian-born Valerie Jarrett, prioritized rapprochement with the terror state. Throughout the process and negotiations, she had the backing of billionaire investor (and Obama-backer) George Soros, and his multi-headed network of tax-exempt foundations. Their efforts were driven by deep-rooted anti-Semitism and personal greed. Meanwhile, since the mid-1990s, a small but very connected Iranian lobby (funded, in...

    Project Syndicate ^ | 09/26/15 | George Soros
    Here are the six components of a comprehensive plan. First, the EU has to accept at least a million asylum-seekers annually for the foreseeable future. And, to do that, it must share the burden fairly – a principle that a qualified majority finally established at last Wednesday’s summit. Adequate financing is critical. The EU should provide €15,000 ($16,800) per asylum-seeker for each of the first two years to help cover housing, health care, and education costs – and to make accepting refugees more appealing to member states. It can raise these funds by issuing long-term bonds using its largely untapped...

Ted Cruz (R-TX) for championing immigration positions that serve the interests of Americans. The ad, titled “Better,” is set to run during Wednesday’s CNN debate. It shows clips of former president Ronald Reagan’s 1989 farewell speech, sans context, with the three GOP contenders prescribing policy solutions to end unchecked, unpopular mass immigration. It minces Reagan’s words to make him appear soft and non-threatening, a kindly grandpa rather than one of the most successful presidents...

The massive Condor flights carrying all kinds of supplies now arrive twice a day through Iran and Iraq into Bassel Al-Assad International Airport outside the port city of Latakia. The cargo is for Russian soldiers, not Syrian government forces, but is seen as a build-up to aid Bashar Assad's embattled regime. The defense official, briefed on the latest satellite photos of the Syrian coastline, said: "This is the largest deployment of Russian forces outside the former Soviet Union since the collapse of the USSR."

A slender woman from the Sahel al-Ghab region in northwestern Syria, where fighting between rebels and government forces has raged in recent weeks, is among the first of several waves of exhausted refugees to reach Guvecci on this September night. She said she and her husband paid a smuggler $130 to be led on a 15-minute dash by foot across the border. The danger of getting caught before the minibus reached...

    About a third of the migrants that have reached Italy so far this year have refused to be identified, according to Italian police. Syrians and Eritreans are among those most likely to refuse to be identified upon arrival, forensic police chief Daniela Stradiotto told a parliamentary commission. Out of the 122,000 people that have arrived on Italian shores this year, 41,000 people have refused identification. EU regulation requires immigrants' asylum applications to be handled by the country they first reach. But many of the migrants do not wish to stay in Italy, rather they are hoping to reach countries such...

Libya, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, and beyond all offer plenty of evidence showing that to be the case. The horrific consequences of the globalist establishment's machinations, though — the genocide of Middle Eastern Christians, the emergence of savage terror groups such as the Islamic State (ISIS), the tsunami of refugees right now cascading into Europe, and more...

We have seen riots, and a drowned little boy, and cheering crowds of welcome. It is an interesting and historic spectacle, but I don't think we understand much about it. And I don't think we're asking enough questions, or grasping all of the consequences. So let's talk about it. First, if there is a true refugee problem, it's pretty likely the last six or seven years of American foreign policy are primarily to...

    Perhaps the greatest nightmare for investors in a commodity stock is that the commodity in question goes the way of coal. After more than a century of dominance in the U.S. and abroad, coal appears to have entered into a structural decline. The EIA and others see coal export volumes declining, domestic U.S. demand remaining questionable, and intense competition from natural gas continuing. A funny thing happened on the way to the graveyard for coal companies though – one of the industries greatest detractors, George Soros, appears to be stepping in as a supporter.

    It is clearly evident that after 9/11/01 Soros had a clear disdain for George W. Bush. As the presidential election of 2008 approached, Soros while putting his support behind Hillary Clinton, was looking for someone who economic and political philosopihies were more aligned with his own. According to Soros, the “open society” in the United States would require a more progressive regime change that what Hillary could provide. Soros found that person in Barack Obama, a socialist/progressive who shared all of Soros values and agendas. Soros first met Obama during a fundraiser for his 2004 Senate campaign, and commanded Obama...

In the days after the Clean Power Plan was announced, Soros bought more than 1 million shares of Peabody Energy and 553,200 shares of...

    RUSH: Bernie Sanders. Folks, I have to tell you something. Bernie Sanders is drawing record crowds. Portland, Seattle, and now Los Angeles. (interruption) What are you frowning at in there? (interruption) It is amazing, but wait. Let's put this in perspective. Let's go back seven years, shall we? Maybe eight years. At this time in the 2008 presidential campaign, everybody thought Barack Hussein O was a political phenomenon. We thought the crowds, we thought the excitement and the cult-like atmosphere was unique to him. It turns out that Obama wasn't a phenomenon at all. The phenomenon happens to be anybody...

    Imagine if the Koch brothers had financed a group that was regularly disrupting and shutting down events of candidates that they opposed. Does anybody doubt that the Koch connection would come up in the first paragraph, if not the first sentence, of most news stories about such disruptions? Yet somehow, complete silence from the MSM on the connection of George Soros to #BlackLivesMatter even though he is the providing most of the finances to that organization. Also mysterious is how the MSM also fails to note that Hillary Clinton, whom Soros supports, has not had her events disrupted by #SorosMoneyMatters (also...
  • The Muslim Brotherhood's Strategic Plan For America - Court Document

    The following is the official document from a 1991 meeting which outlines the Muslim Brotherhood's strategic goals for North America. The document was entered as evidence in the 2008 Holyland Terror Funding Trial. Federal investigators found the document in the home of Ismael Elbarasse, a founder of the Dar Al-Hijrah mosque in Falls Church, Virginia, during a 2004 search. Elbarasse was a member of the Palestine Committee, which the Muslim Brotherhood had created to support Hamas in the United States. We have highlighted in yellow the following quotes which are of particular significance. “Enablement of Islam in North America, meaning:...

    Newly released financial disclosures reveal Bill Clinton received $16.46 million in payments from a George Soros-backed for-profit education company, as Hillary Clinton’s State Department funneled tens of millions of dollars to a group run by the company’s chairman. With $4 billion in annual revenue, Laureate Education is America’s largest for-profit college company. From 2010 until just days before the 2015 release of Clinton Cash, Bill Clinton served as Laureate’s “honorary chancellor.” When the Clinton campaign team obtained a copy of the book and its Clinton-Laureate connection revelation, Bill Clinton abruptly resigned. Laureate’s chairman and longtime Clinton crony, Douglas Becker, is...

    Taxpayers should not have to pay for private political events such as the one attended by Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton on Tuesday outside Aspen, the sheriffs of Pitkin and Garfield counties said. “It’s uncalled for,” said Garfield County Sheriff Lou Vallario. “It’s abuse. It’s that political class attitude that thinks they’re entitled to consume public resources. It’s been a part of their life for so long.” Pitkin County Sheriff Joe DiSalvo agreed, saying that he’d be happy to provide security to public events. But private fundraisers, such as the one Clinton attended Tuesday that cost $2,700 a head to...

    July 31, 2015 (NewsBusters) -- In response to a series of incriminating under-cover videos from The Center for Medical Progress about the major abortion provider, organizations have been cutting ties -- or denying ties -- to Planned Parenthood. But where nonprofits are concerned, tax records keep the story straight. Between 2010 and 2013, no fewer than 966 individual organizations donated to Planned Parenthood. Of those, 31 gave more than $1 million each during those four years, totaling $374,199,059. The seven highest donors made up $324.8 million of that. These largest Planned Parenthood donors include Warren Buffett, George Soros, Bill Gates, and others....

    Co-founder of the #BlackLivesMatter movement said on Wednesday she was “mortified” by the accusations thrown at her by Fox News host Bill O’Reilly. “What’s unfortunate about Bill O’Reilly is that it’s pundits like him that fuel anti-black racism,” Patrisse Cullors told HuffPost Live host Marc Lamont Hill. “It’s pundits like him that allow for folks like Dylann Roof to have more ammunition. So I think we need to hold him accountable.” On Tuesday, the Factor host said that the movement wanted to “tear down the country,” and said they only appeal to “real fringe nuts,” a description Cullors called “unhelpful.”...
  • You will NOT BELIEVE who was best man at John Kerry’s daughter’s wedding

    **SNIP** Zarif is the current minister of foreign affairs in the Rouhani administration and has held various significant diplomatic and cabinet posts since the 1990s. He was Kerry’s chief counterpart in the nuclear deal negotiations. Secretary Kerry and Zarif first met over a decade ago at a dinner party hosted by George Soros at his Manhattan penthouse. What a surprise. I have to say, connecting the dots gets more and more frightening. But it gets even worse. Guess who was the best man at the 2009 wedding between Kerry’s daughter Vanessa and Behrouz Vala Nahed? Javad Zarif’s son.
