ATLANTA — Jordan Spieth already has the best year in golf. He’s one round away from having the richest year in golf history. Spieth battled through a tough, rainy Saturday at the Tour Championship and overtook Henrik Stenson by one shot with a 2-under-par 68.

The Great Wall of Jordan (Obama is spending $500 Million to build an electronic wall in Jordan.)

Vice News ^ | February 24, 2016 | William M. Arkin
The Obama administration is spending close to a half a billion dollars to build a sophisticated electronic fence along Jordan's northern and eastern borders, a wall which US strategic planners hope will stem the flow of refugees and also wall off the increasingly important American base from the disintegration of Syria and Iraq. The wall, which began as a $20 million project in 2008 to erect a set of surveillance towers along a 30-mile (50 km) stretch of the border with Syria, has since expanded into a program costing half a billion dollars, according to defense officials who spoke to...

Jordan at the Precipice

Algemeiner ^ | 3-9-17 | Daniel Pipes
Six months ago, Jordan’s King Abdullah said that his country was “in dire straits.” I just completed a week of intensive travels and discussions throughout the country, and found that no one disagrees with this assessment. Jordan may no longer be hyper-vulnerable and under siege, as it was in decades past, but it does face problems that are likely unprecedented. Jordan, which was created out of thin air by Winston Churchill in 1921 in order to accommodate British imperial interests, has always led a precarious existence. Particularly dangerous moments came in the 1967, when Pan-Arabist pressures led King Hussein (who...

RUSH: How about Jordan Spieth? Did you see Jordan Spieth’s round yesterday at the British Open? (interruption) Okay, you didn’t see it. Jordan Spieth… I mentioned this after he won the Masters a couple years ago. What I fine… I don’t want to sound like an old fogy here. But what a classy guy. He’s 24 in four days. He’s the youngest player, professional, to win the British Open. He’s the first under 24 to win three majors. He’s from Dallas. He is… If you have a daughter, he’s the guy you would want your daughter to marry. He’s the...

Jerusalem Post ^ | March 20, 2017 | Caroline B. Glick
Every once in a while, the Jordanian people are given a chance to express how they really feel about Israel. It’s ugly. Jordan is the country to Israel’s east with which Israel has had a formal peace for 23 years. And its people hate Israel, and Jews, even more than the Iranians do. Every once in a while, the Jordanian people are given a chance to express how they really feel about Israel. It’s ugly. Twenty years ago, on March 13, 1997, 7th and 8th grade girls from the AMIT Fuerst junior high school for girls in Beit Shemesh packed...

O’boy, things are fun now. We’ve gone from a small peep hole in the rat-filled barn wall letting in the sunlight, to rapid cannon-fire knocking holes the size of bowling balls.  Whoo doggies… look at em’ scatter. A few days ago CTH advised of a few good people to keep an eye on.  Yes, there are a few people inside the Swamp with a laser painting the target.

Visit Jordan before Isis does

Newsweek ^ | 01 July 2015 | George Richards
On a dusty hill in the suburbs of Amman, the capital of Jordan, I visited the late King Hussein's magnificent automobile collection, opened to the public as a museum. Amid rows of gleaming motorcycles, I passed a brightly-coloured Japanese racer and a low-riding American chopper, and my eyes fell on one dark model that stood behind them. This, a placard told me, was a Brough Superior, British-made and once common in Jordan as a motorcycle used for military purposes. Jordan is an island of peace and stability in a sea of turmoil. There is almost nowhere in the region that...

Of Jordan Spieth and Hillary Clinton

I'm. Just. So. Excited. That. Hillary. Clinton. Is. Ready. To. Be. My. Champion. I mean, she says she's ready, what with "the deck ... still stacked in favor of those at the top." Oh, ma'am, we "everyday Americans," I can tell you, have had it up to here with the "top" people running everything. We're ready for a president with a family net worth of only $13 million: somewhere in the Clinton range, we're informed. Something else we're ready for is a president whose speech-giving fees, pre-campaign, were a modest $200,000: $10,000 a minute or thereabouts; no more than your...

Jordan Becomes House Freedom Caucus Chairman
02/11/2015 1:00:06 PM PST · by cotton1706 · 1 reply ^ | 2/10/15 | Matt Fuller
The House Freedom Caucus finally has a chairman, and it is, as expected, Jim Jordan. Members of the HFC met late Tuesday in an unnumbered Cannon House Office Building conference room to vote on the chairman and bylaws, as well as to discuss issues currently before Congress. Jordan was nominated to be chairman by fellow founding member Mick Mulvaney of South Carolina, who is heading up a smaller group within the HFC to work on bylaws. In his nomination speech, Mulvaney noted that Jordan was a former Republican Study Committee chairman. But it wasn’t as if Mulvaney had to make...

Pope Francis will meet Jordan’s King Abdullah II at the Vatican next week, the Holy See announced on Friday, as Palestinians continue to clash with Israeli forces over US President Donald Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. […] The pope and King Abdullah, the custodian of the Muslim holy sites in Jerusalem’s Old City, are likely to discuss the situation, though the Vatican never indicates topics of discussion for such meetings in advance. On Sunday, the pope called for “respect of the status quo” in Jerusalem and warned against “a new spiral of violence”. Abdullah has denounced the...

Rising Tensions Between Jordan, Palestinian Authority

MEMRI ^ | 10/6/15 | B. Shanee
Two recent events aggravated the existing political disputes and tensions between Jordan and the Palestinian Authority (PA). On May 22, 2015 worshippers disrupted a Friday sermon delivered at Al-Aqsa mosque by Jordanian chief qadi Ahmad Hulail, who was visiting the mosque at the head of a high-level Jordanian delegation. Also in late May, the Arab media reported that Jibril Rajoub, the president of the Palestinian Football Association, who holds dual Palestinian and Jordanian citizenship, refused to back the Jordanian candidate for the presidency of FIFA, King 'Abdallah's half-brother Prince 'Ali Bin Al-Hussein. These two incidents sparked furious reactions from the...

Arutz Sheva ^ | 8/11/15 | Dalit Halevi
Protests in support of the current Palestinian Arab “intifada” and against Israel continue in Jordan. On Friday, immediately after weekly prayers in the mosques, a massive rally was held in the city of Zarqa, east of Amman. The protesters, who responded to calls from the Islamic Movement, waved Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) flags and expressed support for the “Palestinian struggle”. Ayman Abu al-Rub, a leader of the Islamic Movement in Jordan, congratulated the young people involved in the intifada, and said that the intifada would continue despite the machinations and efforts to stop it, and stressed that the Jordanian people...

Jordan's king endorses Palestinian reconciliation deal

Associated Press ^ | Oct 22, 2017 1:36 PM EDT
Jordan’s king on Sunday endorsed a fledgling Palestinian reconciliation agreement that is meant to end a decade-old political and ideological split between rivals Hamas and Fatah. King Abdullah II expressed support for the Egyptian-brokered deal after meeting Sunday with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, who heads Fatah. The Islamic militant Hamas seized the Gaza Strip in 2007, leaving Abbas with autonomous enclaves in the Israeli-occupied West Bank. The palace said that the king “affirmed Jordan’s full support for this agreement”, which it said would strengthen Palestinian unity. Jordan, which considers itself a key Mideast mediator, was not directly involved in reconciliation...
