    A Democratic lawmaker came under fire over the weekend, after she claimed that Palestinian Arabs living in the British Mandate prior to the establishment of the State of Israel “provided” a safe haven to Jews after the Holocaust. Rashida Tlaib, a freshman Democrat representing Michigan in the US House of Representatives, said in an interview with Yahoo!’s Skullduggery podcast program Saturday that she felt pride in the fact that her “ancestors, Palestinians” provided Jews with a haven after the Holocaust. “Let me tell you, I mean, for me, just two weeks ago or so, we celebrated, but just took a...

He is among thousands of regime figures who are believed to have slipped into Syria before Damascus sealed the border. Izzat had...

Gates after discussing his doubts that President Obama believed in the mission in Afghanistan, and micromanaging of the military by the Obama administration was asked about the president’s suspicion of the military. He stated, “I think this was particularly true in Afghanistan, and I think there were people in the White House, and I don’t want to name any names, who...

    Vermont has a new Safe Haven law, which means that parents can hand over an infant to an employee at any fire station, health facility or hospital, with absolutely no questions asked. However, apparently Planned Parenthood is considered a safe place for infants in Vermont. In an advertisement from Planned Parenthood of Northern New England, the abortion business announced, “Vermont has a new safe haven law. This means that rather than abandoning your newborn, you can bring your baby to a safe place where he or she will be carried for. All Planned Parenthood health centers in Vermont are safe...

    Some 150 Israeli Arabic-speaking Christians on Sunday demonstrated outside the European Union mission in Tel Aviv, demanding that the international community stop nitpicking against Israel and start combatting the severe persecution of Christians everywhere else in the Middle East. “Nations, organizations and international missions are quick to raise an accusing finger against Israel at every opportunity,” said Father Gabriel Nadaf, spiritual father of the Israeli Christian Recruitment Forum, which organized the rally. Those same nations and organizations “don’t life a finger against the ethnic cleansing of Christians in the Middle East,” the priest continued. Father Nadaf went on to explain...

    For the past five years there were reasonable arguments for keeping money in the United States. While the United States endured a brutal recession and it is still suffering through an anemic recovery, on a relative basis the economy has been a bright spot, particularly compared to Europe and Japan. Since the end of the recession corporations have churned out record profits, the dollar has been stable, and interest rates remain near historic lows.In the past few years, having a strong US focus has been a good trade. Since exiting the recession in mid-2009, US stocks have significantly outperformed international...

    I am still recovering from the election but I feel a deep commitment to getting the true story of what happened at Benghazi out to the public. I originally posted this article at 12:49 AM PST yesterday morning and that was a mistake. So I hope it is okay to repost it tonight at a more decent hour. This is a draft version. It is brief, 5 min 05 seconds, because I realized after posting Part 1 (14 mins+) that it is too much to ask my fellow Freepers to watch a long video with no knowledge of who I...

    There's nowhere for investors to hide. No safe haven. The fourth-quarter kickoff yesterday saw the S&P 500 Index slip below 1,100 to a one-year low, while oil and commodities extended their declines in a sign global economies may be headed toward a recession. And in the third quarter, which ended Friday, 45 of 46 countries' stock indices posted declines, and U.S. stocks had their worst quarter in three years. More importantly, many of the issues that prompted those miserable performances remain unresolved, which bodes poorly for the stock market for the rest of the year. What analysts and investment advisers...

    With gold dropping $200 in the past several weeks on ongoing much anticipated liquidations to cover margin calls, there are those who have wondered if the precious metals have lost their safe haven luster? Well, no. All they have lost is some value against the dollar even as all other global currencies have fallen faster than even gold as was pointed out yesterday by Mike Krieger. In other words all that is happening is a relative devaluation of the DM currencies relative to the one absolute, and to the dollar as well. However, as the Swiss National Bank so...

    Prior to the last couple of weeks, there were four really big "safe haven" assets that were going up basically every single day as financial markets got more and more unglued. They were: Gold, the Swiss Franc, US Treasuries, and Japanese yen. None of them yield anything, all have a pretty fantastic history of storing and returning value. None are associated with unsound monetary regimes. In the last couple of weeks, there's been a shift. US Treasuries and Japanese yen continue to hit brand new all-time highs. On the other hand, gold and the Swiss Franc have (to different degrees)...
