  • Obama Abandons Imprisoned American Pastor Saeed Abedini in Iran for Nuke Deal (What a deal!)

    DC Clothesline ^ | 11/25/2013 | Janna Brock
    This weekend, the Obama Administration proclaimed that a historic “deal” was reached with the mad mullahs of Tehran. A breakthrough in their nuclear program, one that would ease sanctions and restrictions, while keeping them “away” from nuclear weapons. The joke is on us because nothing changes. But in the meantime, Obama could have secured the release of American Pastor Saeed Abedini, and possibly others, imprisoned in Iran for his Christian faith. If he cared, he could have made the release of Abedini as part of the terms for the “nuclear agreement” with Iran. But Obama abandons Americans at every turn....

As has been reported, the DHS has released documents listing Ron Paul supporters, libertarians, people who support gun rights, who oppose the Federal Reserve, oppose illegal immigration and oppose abortion as “domestic extremists” and terrorists.

    As I noted earlier today, Al-Jazeera has been dubbed "the most powerful voice of the Muslim Brotherhood." And Pamela Geller has noted that "Al Jazeera is the leading terrorist propaganda organization in the world. Jihad murder mastermind Anwar al-Awlaki has praised Al Jazeera, and several years ago one of its most prominent reporters was arrested on terror charges. Al Jazeera also has for years been the recipient of numerous Al Qaeda videos featuring bin Laden, Zawahiri, and American traitor Adam Gadahn. Yet they never seem to be able to trace where these videos are coming from. They have repeatedly been...

The global warmists are essentially pagans for whom the worship of Gaia, an Earth goddess of Greek origin, symbolizes their rejection of the Judeo-Christian values embraced by Western civilization. It is, by now, a cliché to call environmentalism...

Today, broken windows are boarded up with sheets of plywood at the recruitment center in downtown Berkeley. CodePink and other anti-war groups picketed in front of the Marine recruiting center at 64 Shattuck Square in downtown Berkeley since the fall of 2007.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Justice Department on Monday released a long-secret legal document from 2001 in which the Bush administration claimed the military could search and seize terror suspects in the United States without warrants. The legal memo was written about a month after the Sept. 11 terror attacks. It says constitutional protections against unlawful search and seizure would not apply to terror suspects in the U.S., as long as the president or another high official authorized the action. >snip The memo was one of nine released Monday by the Obama administration.

The birfers' struggle to unseat Barack Obama remained under the sanity radar until around the time our Liza reported on them. Their court-clogging antics have been good for some chuckles, and not much more. But in these last hours before Barack Obama is inaugurated, I'd like to indulge them, and perhaps even vindicate them. Let's just assume Barack Obama's birth certificate is as fake as a politically motivated mugging/face-carving. Picture it under lock...

The credential shows the stars of the America flag in the lower right hand corner of the pass as if it were upside down, an official sign of distress. Natalie Wyeth, a spokeswoman for the Democratic National Committee said it was an artistic rendition of the American flag, not an actual American flag.

    MINNEAPOLIS - Shrouded in black, with a bandanna masking her face, a self-proclaimed anarchist slips into her combat boots and dashes through town, tossing a Molotov cocktail here, launching a bowling ball there. The YouTube video is more parody than threat: The flaming cocktail ignites a charcoal grill, and the bowling ball knocks down pins instead of crashing through a Navy recruiting office window. But as the video fades to black, the message on-screen is clear: "We're getting ready. What are you doing?" With less than 10 months to go before the Republican National Convention in Minneapolis-St.Paul, activists are already...

    When Americans evaluate today's political landscape, most feel something between impotence and disapproval. So, while citizens shake their heads or shrug at the mainstream media's “top tier” presidential candidates, it is extraordinary how many are becoming overjoyed about one lesser covered candidate. Tens-of-thousands have joined the appropriately named Ron Paul Revolution, joining Meetup.com groups, putting up signs, and crossing states to attend rallies. Congressman Ron Paul's genuine message and untarnished record of promoting individual liberty for everyone, a free-market economy of wealth and abundance, and a foreign policy of non-intervention, peace and free trade, has attracted vast support from diverse...

And if past patterns are any guide, a number of Democrats are embarrassed, and even angered, by MoveOn’s actions but are afraid to reveal the true extent of their feelings.

"There is only one timetable for withdrawal, and that is to get troops out as fast as ships and planes can carry them," Zinn said.

    Those in Congress who argue setting a deadline or a schedule for the "redeployment" of U.S. military forces from Iraq, based on the claim we must send the Iraqis a message about getting their security and political act together, should think further about how others will interpret this same "message." Clearly, we should take prudent steps to help and encourage Iraqi leaders to accelerate their efforts to secure their country so their government can function. However, sending this message by setting a timeframe for redeploying U.S. troops will only irreparably damage Iraq and harm future American generations. Surely, there are...

A counterprotest was staged, too, on a day of dueling signs and sentiments such as "Illegal Combat" and "Peace Through Strength," and songs like "The Battle Hymn of the Republic" and "War (What's It Good For?)." Thousands crossed the Potomac River from the Lincoln Memorial to rally loudly but peacefully near the Pentagon. "We're here in...
  • 'It will be taken as an American decision'

    Rosemary Hollis, director of research at Chatham House, LondonIt's tawdry. It's not going to achieve anything because of the way the trial was conducted and the way the occupation was conducted. Life in Iraq has become so precarious that many people are saying it was safer under Saddam Hussein - it makes the whole thing look like a poke in the eye as opposed to closure or some kind of contribution to the future of Iraq. The purpose should have been to see justice done in a transparent manner ... the trial was gruesome, occasionally farcical, and failed to fulfil...

    BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) _ Three peace activists accused of vandalizing a Minuteman III missile silo site near Garrison have been convicted by a federal jury of destroying government property. Greg Boertje-Obed, 51, and Michael Walli, 57, both of Duluth, Minn., and Carl Kabat, 72, of St. Louis, admitted during the course of a two-day trial to dressing up as clowns, breaking into the missile silo site June 20, spray-painting messages and splattering blood, and pounding on the lid of the underground silo with hammers. The jury deliberated only about 1˝ hours Thursday before convicting the men. The three men, members...

    Blair attacks Europe's "mad anti-Americans"By Paul MajendieLONDON (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Tony Blair launched a withering attack on Thursday on what he called "mad anti-Americanism" among European politicians. Blair, U.S. President George W. Bush's closest ally in the so-called war on terror, said the world urgently needs the United States to help tackle the globe's most pressing problems. "The danger is if they decide to pull up the drawbridge and disengage. We need them involved," Blair said, spelling out his political vision in a pamphlet published by The Foreign Policy Center think-tank. "The strain of, frankly, anti-American feeling in...

    Democrats are outraged over President Bush's new series of national security speeches. There he goes again, politicizing the war. The Democratic leadership obviously believes the president should muzzle himself so close to the November elections because what is important for national security might also help Republicans, and that must be avoided at all costs. Democrats are furious over Defense Secretary Rumsfeld's speech to the American Legion this week, in which he compared today's appeasers to those of the World War II era and warned that we mustn't turn a blind eye to today's terrorists like many did to yesterday's Nazis....

    A loose coalition of liars, profiteers, political panderers, conspiracy theorists, anti-Semitics, terrorist sympathizers, cyber thrill seekers, anti-Americans, and the mentally ill is growing and congealing in America. They allege terrorists did not attack the United States on 9/11; President Bush and the “neocons” did it or the Jews did it or both did it. Their fallback theory is the Bush administration extensively knew about the 9/11 plot by terrorists and just let 9/11 happen so they could aggressively pursue a war on terror. For the conspiracy coalition's main claim, they have virtually conjured from the thin blue 9/11 air a...
  • Democrat Billionaires Trying to Fund Liberal Takeover

    Last week, the front page of the Washington Post exposed the details of the shadowy group of Democrat billionaires who are trying to fund the liberal take-over of Congress. This dangerous group called the "Democracy Alliance" has become "a large source of undisclosed and unaccountable political influence." In the last nine months alone, the Washington Post reports the so-called "Democracy Alliance" has funneled over $50 million to liberal groups bent on defeating conservatives. Will you let a club for billionaires buy the Senate? The Washington Post reported earlier last week that a shadowy club for billionaires called the "Democracy Alliance"...

    CASTRO VALLEY - Despite a daylong mediation session today, Castro Valley High School students waving American flags amidst racial tension between Latino and white students vow to return to campus Friday. Students on both sides today said the situation will escalate, though the day was far more peaceful than Wednesday, when about 200 students -- split between those carrying American and mainly Mexican flags--confronted each other. "We think it's going to keep going," junior Christina Cortez said while spending lunch monitoring the front of school. Among those with her was an eighth grade brother who came to her school with...

    CASTRO VALLEY - Racial tensions came to a boil at Castro Valley High today between students displaying Mexican and American flags, having simmered since May 1's "Day Without Immigrants" protests. While students on both sides -- largely divided between Latinos and whites--and administrators disagree on whether race is what originally sparked the bad feelings, there's no uncertainty it's now all about race. "This is out of control," said freshmen Allie Levy as she and a friend were picked up by a parent during lunch. They were leaving early because they feared for their safety. During today's lunchtime demonstrations, dozens of...

    MINNEAPOLIS / ST. PAUL-- American’s increasing acceptance of religious diversity doesn’t extend to those who don’t believe in a god, according to a national survey by researchers in the University of Minnesota’s department of sociology. From a telephone sampling of more than 2,000 households, university researchers found that Americans rate atheists below Muslims, recent immigrants, gays and lesbians and other minority groups in “sharing their vision of American society.” Atheists are also the minority group most Americans are least willing to allow their children to marry. Even though atheists are few in number, not formally organized and relatively hard to...
