    The Obama White House knowingly gave false information on the Benghazi terrorist attack. The Obama Administration repeated to reporters that the consulate attack was the related to an offensive YouTube document but they privately were circulating a very different view on the murderous attack. Catherine Herridge from FOX News reported: “There was this private narrative you see in the intelligence community where they separate what happened in Libya from this YouTube clip and then you have this public narrative that you have from this administration. And I got a hold of this Homeland Security Assessment. It talks about the scope...

    (AP) TEHRAN, Iran - A senior commander in Iran's powerful Revolutionary Guard warned that Iran will target U.S. bases in the region in the event of war with Israel, raising the prospect of a broader conflict that would force other countries to get involved, Iranian state television reported Sunday. The comments by Gen. Amir Ali Hajizadeh, who heads the Guard's aerospace division, came amid tension over Iran's nuclear program and Israel's suggestion that it might unilaterally strike Iranian nuclear facilities to scuttle what the United States and its allies believe are efforts to build a bomb. Tehran says its nuclear...

    It's Florida, after all, so what would you expect? After a constant stream of Sunshine State visits by President Barack Obama and Republican nominee Mitt Romney, after many millions spent on TV ads, and even after a Republican National Convention in Tampa, Obama and Romney are essentially tied in America's ultimate battleground state. A new Tampa Bay Times/Miami Herald/Bay News 9 poll finds 48 percent of likely Florida voters backing Obama, 47 percent supporting Romney, 1 percent with Libertarian Party nominee Gary Johnson and just 4 percent undecided.

    Breitbart ^ | 22 Sep 2012, 10:21 AM PDT | AWR Hawkins
    President Barack Obama is about to release or transfer 55 Gitmo prisoners, despite reports that the Libyan believed to be behind the killing of US Ambassador Christopher Stevens was a former Guantanamo inmate transferred to Libyan custody. The large percentage of those scheduled to be released are Yemeni, according to a list made public by the Obama administration. Obama stopped the release or transfer of Yemeni inmates in 2010, because the conditions in the country were viewed as too "unsettled" at the time. A release or transfer of 55 inmates means Obama is moving out one third of the prisoners...

Next week, Obama will denounce the film in a speech before the United Nations General Assembly:National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor previews the president's speech to the UN General Assembly next week: "UNGA always provides...

    BENGHAZI, Libya, Sept 22 (Reuters) - An Islamist militia was driven out of the city of Benghazi early on Saturday in a surge of anger against the armed groups that control large parts of Libya more than a year after the overthrow of Muammar Gaddafi. A spokesman for Ansar al-Sharia, which some U.S. and Libya officials blame for the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi last week in which the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans were killed, said it had evacuated its bases "to preserve security in the city". In a dramatic sign of Libya's fragility, after sweeping...

    The controversial “Piss Christ” artwork Sen. Alfonse D’Amato once branded as a “deplorable, despicable display of vulgarity,” is coming to New York, and security is being heavily ramped- up at the gallery that will show the piece. Andres Serrano’s work — a “photograph of the crucifix submerged in the artist’s urine” — first ignited controversy in 1989 when D’Amato complained to the US Senate that it was an “outrage,” an “indignity” and a “piece of trash” that had been funded by taxpayers. Serrano had won a $15,000 prize for his work, backed in part by the National Endowment for the...

The following tax hikes will occur on January 1, 2013: Personal income tax rates will rise on January...

    First lady says there’s ‘bromance’ between Obama, Bill Clinton By Alicia M. Cohn - 09/21/12 04:43 PM ET Michelle Obama this week acknowledged that the extended hug between President Obama and former President Clinton at the Democratic National Convention, in a surprise appearance by the president following Clinton’s speech, was “the public display of the bromance” that has been going on for some time. Obama and the first lady have invoked Clinton’s name many times on the campaign trail since his well-received speech to the Democratic convention earlier this month. Both Obama and his GOP opponent, Mitt Romney, have featured...

    Islamists detained in the United Arab Emirates have confessed to setting up a secret organization with an armed force whose aim was to take power and establish an Islamic state, local media reported on Thursday. The detainees, who number around 60, were all members of the banned Muslim Brotherhood organization, the privately owned al- Khaleej newspaper reported. Two other newspapers, including the state-owned al-Bayan, ran similar reports. None gave named sources. A UAE official declined to comment on the reports, saying the matter was subject to legal proceedings. The UAE, a significant oil exporter and Middle East business hub, tolerates...

    Mitt Romney's campaign released his 2011 tax information this afternoon, as well as a notarized letter from PriceWaterhouseCoopers attesting to Romney’s tax rates from 1990-2009, and I must say: Well played, Romney campaign. Well played, indeed. The Democrats have been making a federal case of Romney's supposed "tax secrecy," with countless ads and speeches and the voice in Harry Reid’s head making Romney out to be a greedy, tax-evading corporate mastermind of epic proportions, but the Romney camp just let them huff and puff until they wore themselves out, and now they're releasing the information on their terms. I'm sure...

    Around 30,000 Libyans participated in an unprecedented protest against militias in Benghazi on Friday, according to the Associated Press. The rally comes after last week's attack on the US consulate in Benghazi left the US ambassador and three other Americans dead. At least one militia is suspected of taking part in the attack, which has caused Libyans to speak out against the armed factions in Libya. Bloomberg noted that the country's stability is threatened by the powerful militias, which the country's previous government under the National Transitional Council was unable to disarm. The recently elected General National Congress has not...
