    The 21 men beheaded on a Mediterranean beach in a video released by Islamist savages Sunday were killed because of their Coptic Christian faith, by men who proclaimed the reason for the murders before the whole world. And the White House won’t say the word. Christian beheading victims are marched to the beach in Libya to be murdered by Islamist militants on Sunday. (Daily Mail photo) “The United States condemns the despicable and cowardly murder of 21 Egyptian citizens in Libya by ISIL-affiliated terrorists,” a statement issued by the White House said.“ISIL’s barbarity knows no bounds.  It is unconstrained by...

    CNN) - In a new propaganda video released Sunday by ISIS, the group claims to have beheaded over a dozen members of Egypt's Coptic Christian minority on a Libyan beach. The video shows an apparent mass execution with jihadists in black standing behind each of the victims, who are all are dressed in orange jumpsuits with their hands cuffed behind them. The five-minute video, released by the terror group's propaganda wing al-Hayat Media, includes a masked English-speaking jihadi who says, "The sea you have hidden Sheikh Osama bin Laden's body in, we swear to Allah, we will mix it with...

    I don’t understand why folks are giving President Obama and his spokes-minions such a hard time over his insistence that Ahmedy Coulibaly, the terrorist who just happened to be Muslim committing terrorism that had nothing to do with Islam, was just “randomly” picking out folks in Paris to kill when he randomly came upon a grocery that just happened to be Jewish and, coincidentally, to have Jews in it, whom he randomly killed. Sure, we know Coulibaly called a French TV station during the siege, said he was loyal to the Islamic State that has nothing to do with Islam,...
  • Is Obama done with Washington? - "The Bear is loose"

    Is President Obama done with Washington? The 44th president has never been the capital’s biggest fan, but his frustration with life in D.C. is bubbling to the surface in ways both casual and substantive. The president twice went for unscheduled walkabouts last week, taking a trip to a Starbucks near the White House with his chief of staff Denis McDonough on Monday and, the next day, turning up at a burger joint in Alexandria, Va. “The bear is loose!” is the president’s favorite phrase at such moments, and he deployed it again last week. Even the metaphor suggests a man...

    President Obama said Americans were “better off now than when I came into office,” during a fundraiser Monday night outside of Washington. Obama also slammed congressional Republicans for their focus on the terror attack in Benghazi and the implementation of ObamaCare. The president told attendees at the high-dollar soiree in Potomac, Maryland that his Republican opposition in Congress had been “captured by ideologues” whose principal focus was on “how to make people sufficiently skeptical, so they can win the next election.” “The debate now is about what?” Obama asked. “Benghazi? ObamaCare? It becomes this endless loop.” Obama told donors that...
  • Obama: My "Biggest Priority" is Bringing the Benghazi "Folks" to Justice

    The president appeared on Michael Smerconish's radio program earlier today and addressed the Benghazi attack:   Obama Says His "Biggest Priority" Is Bringing Benghazi Attackers To Justice What happened in Benghazi is a tragedy. We’re investigating exactly what happened. I take full responsibility for that fact. I send these folks in harm’s way, I want to make sure they’re always safe and when that doesn't happen, that we figure out what happened and make sure that doesn't happen again. But my biggest priority now is bringing those folks to justice and I think the American people have seen that’s a...

    So after watching tonight's debate, my overwhelming take-away is when did it become appropriate and common for a person seeking political office to refer to people as "folks"? It was like the proverbial nails-on-a-chalkboard to me every time I heard Mr. Obama hiss the word and before the first hour was up, I actually yelled at the screen. This was the first time in a very long time I had any sort of "out loud" reaction to something on television and I almost turned it off! Then I reminded myself that since I don't normally watch any TV (I was...

    As the presidential election campaign starts to occupy more and more of the airwaves someone should carry a counter and click every time the word ‘folks’ is uttered by a candidate. Even better would be how that final count would compare to the number of times a candidate would use a word like ‘citizens’ (at least citizens in a positive, civic light, not only in comparison to illegal ‘aliens’). In the opening chapter of her very relevant book The Age of American Unreason, Susan Jacoby laments the ever widening usage of the words like ‘folks’ and ‘troops’ in American social...

    The Department of Justice is executing a "Witch Hunt" against banks. Through the DOJ's Civil Rights Division, Attorney General Eric Holder is forcing banks to "relax their mortgage underwriting standards and approve loans for minorities with poor credit as part of a new crackdown on alleged discrimination," according to a published report by Investor's Business Daily after reviewing court documents. The DOJ has already extorted $20 million for weak and poor credit loans from banks that "settled out of court rather than battle the federal government and risk being branded racist." The DOJ admits another 60 banks are already under...

    Lots of strands in this web of deceit but I'll do my best to sort it out for everyone with the help of Palmetto State Politics and Redstate. First the players in this South Carolinian drama: There is Nikkie Haley who is looking to become the first female Governor of South Carolina. She has most definitely messed up the good ole' boy network going on in that state, which then has us come to the second player. Will Folks. Former speechwriter for Mark Sanford and the man behind this quote: “The problem is that any time you have a largely...

    Text messages have been posted--that a political blogger says proves he was forced to reveal a relationship with Nikki Haley. He also says, the Haley campaign told him to "Deny" the story if it broke. In the end, he broke it first. Will Folks says one of the texts he released on his site--is from him to Haley--a week before this broke. Contradicting her claim she didn't know about it. Also part of the texting ring--Haley's campaign manager Tim Pearson--and political consultant Wes Donehue. Wednesday, Folks posted on his website--not the evidence to prove a physical relationship with Gubernatorial candidate...

    Ben Smith of the Politico called Will Folks “credible” when the “inappropriate physical relationship” story broke. Michael Brendan Doughtery called him “revered” and said “His reputation since leaving the governor’s office has only increased. He has become South Carolina’s essential political blogger.” Like the only two movie critics quoted on a movie scoring 5% at Rotten Tomatoes, those quotes may come back to . . . . hahahahahaha . . . . who am I kidding — there’s no accountability for the circle of young beltway journalist-pundits who hang together and consider diversity of thought ordering two different things at...

    The latest news….or is that the latest rumor…is that a blogger from South Carloina named Will Folks had an affair with gubernatorial candidate Nikki Haley. Will Folks decided to write about this affair on his blog, claiming that bits and pieces of information were being leaked to the press, so he decided to come out and tell the story. Well I have learned not to put anything past politicians nowadays, whether they be man or woman. But there is something to this story that makes me pause. First, the guy has a criminal record for beating women…a woman he claims...

    With breaking news out of Palestine today that a top aide to President Mahmoud Abbas has been literally caught with his pants down, rape tapes seem to be popping up all over the pious Muslim world. And some are horrifically worse than others. Last month on the FOX Business Network, Colonel Oliver North revealed a startling piece of information. Conservative mullahs and elements within the Haqqani terror network – known as the backbone of the Taliban and Al Qaeda in the Af/Pak theater – are working to take the Haqqanis down from the inside. Their key weapon is a disturbing...

Despite Barack Obama's protests, the truth is very clear that Barack Obama is the most liberal member of the United States Senate. The ad will be televised nationally.

    The economics of nice folks A basic tenet of economics is that people always behave selfishly, or as the 18th century philosopher economist David Hume put it, "every man ought to be supposed to be a knave." But what if some people aren't always knaves? Sam Bowles argues in Science June 20 that economics will get it wrong then, sometimes badly so. He points to new experimental evidence that people do often act against their own personal self-interest in favor of the common good, and they do so in predictable, understandable ways. Poorly-designed economic institutions fail to take advantage...

    SYRACUSE NY--Something didn't smell quite right to North Syracuse police when a village resident came in Friday looking for a little help. What stunk was Brian D. Courbat, 21, of 130 Lynhurst Ave. He wreaked of marijuana, police said. Officers Jeff Tripp and Rocco DePerno said when they asked him about the odor, Courbat told them he had just used marijuana, something he routinely does three or four times a day. In fact, Courbat had several packets of pot on him, police said. Courbat wanted the police to help him with the background check necessary for a pistol permit. Instead,...
