    Turkey once again showed it can't take a joke, as a Turkish court ordered a panel of experts to assess the character of Gollum from The Lord of the Rings - to decide whether a doctor who compared President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to the figure should be jailed. Dr. Bilgin Ciftci of Aydin is accused of "insulting" Erdogan by posting images online comically comparing Erdogan and Gollum, the fantasy creature with a personality split between good and evil who became a fan favorite for pining over the One Ring - better known as "my precious." The experts will determine whether...

The draft resolution intends to quash the financing of terrorist groups, including Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) extremists. “We are not happy with the way Resolution 2199, which was our initiative, is controlled and implemented. We want to toughen the whole procedure,” Churkin said. “We are already discussing the text with some colleagues and I must say that so...

    On the front lines of the battle against the Islamic State, suspicion of the United States runs deep. Iraqi fighters say they have all seen the videos purportedly showing U.S. helicopters airdropping weapons to the militants, and many claim they have friends and relatives who have witnessed similar instances of collusion. Ordinary people also have seen the videos, heard the stories and reached the same conclusion — one that might seem absurd to Americans but is widely believed among Iraqis — that the United States is supporting the Islamic State for a variety of pernicious reasons that have to do...

    THE Bureau of Meteorology has had its sensitive systems compromised by a major cyber attack being blamed on China. The ABC reports the breach is "massive", with the bureau owning one of the country's largest supercomputers. Its systems have a link to the Department of Defence at Russell Offices in Canberra, the report says. The cost of fixing the breach has not been determined, and the time needed to repair it is also unclear. The weather bureau's services are vital in warning of weather conditions associated with bushfires, thunderstorms, tropical cyclones, flooding, rain, and dangerous winds. They are also essential...

    Russia has expanded its military operations in Syria to include a second airbase as well as other posts, according to a U.S. official briefed on the latest intelligence from the region – even as President Obama expresses muted optimism that Russian President Vladimir Putin eventually will “shift” his strategy and work with the West. Moscow’s presence has grown to a total of four forward operating bases, including recently added bases in Hama and Tiyas. But the most concerning to the Pentagon is the second airbase in Shayrat which can support fixed-wing aircraft, greatly expanding Russia’s capability for airstrikes, which began...

    America's top-ranking military officer found himself at odds Tuesday with the nation’s commander-in-chief over his claim that the Islamic State was "contained" - an assertion President Obama had made before the Paris terror attacks. Gen. Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, gave a dim assessment when asked during a House Armed Services Committee hearing whether that's the case. "We have not contained ISIL currently," Dunford told Rep. Randy Forbes, R-Va. The answer runs counter to the claim made by Obama last month in an ABC News interview when asked about the status of the anti-ISIS campaign.

    Speaking at the bogus climate summit in Paris, President Obama ran way over the allotted time for his speech -- in part, it appeared, because TOTUS was a bit slow. In any case, once Obama reached the time allowed, the subtle chime that is a triple ring to signal that the time is up, rang. But POTUS kept on talking. Then it rang again. POTUS kept talking. More ringing. More talking. At one point, POTUS reached a point in his speech when he said, "Let's send that signal." As if on cue, the chime rang yet again. To no avail....

    American Thinker ^ | 12/01/2015 | Selwyn Duke
    With NATO member Turkey's recent downing of a Russian aircraft sparking fears of WWIII, a rather politically incorrect question needs to be asked: should a Muslim nation have NATO membership? Having a country as part of the NATO alliance is no small matter. Since an attack on one member nation is considered an attack on all, an escalation of the Russian-Turk crisis resulting in military action against Turkey by Russia could, conceivably, lead to a WWIII. This is why it's imperative that NATO members be rational actors. As to this, I have a theory about the shoot-down of the Russian...

Apari and Berenson met in prison in 1997. He was also an inmate at the time. Berenson was on parole for the past 5 years after spending 15 years in prison. In 1996, Berenson was found guilty...

Then came the ISIL Paris attack on the 13 th and suddenly France and Russia were allies in Syria and going after...

    With all the talk about the Syrian refugees, one point is often overlooked. Much of the debate focuses on the question of whether or not the refugees can be reliably vetted. If they can be certified as one-hundred percent terrorist-free, then, presumably the resettlement can safely proceed. But even if every terrorist could be excluded from the ranks of the refugees, a problem would remain. What concerns many analysts is that the resettlement program might facilitate the growth of terrorist-tolerant communities in America. By "terrorist-tolerant" I don't mean that its members are thinking every minute about what they can do...

The trend began with a tweet about Ashraf Fayadh, a 35-year-old poet who is on death row in Saudi Arabia.

    President Vladimir Putin is actively misinforming his domestic audience and the international community about Russia’s first military intervention outside the former Soviet Union since its 1979 invasion of Afghanistan. Putin has created a false narrative about the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) to disguise the true objectives behind Russia’s intervention Syria and is using this narrative to manipulate the international community. Putin encapsulated this false narrative in his UN speech calling for an alternate international coalition against ISIS on September 28, two days before the start of Russia’s air campaign in Syria.

The declaration was a boost to climate negotiators seeking a tough accord and a challenge to Republican senators, many of whom don't believe that global warming is real. Whether or not to make the climate accord legally binding is a major sticking point at the two-week talks in Paris, which aim to get all countries to agree to cut emissions that scientists say are warming the Earth and are increasing extreme weather such as droughts and floods....

    In a broad-based press conference, President Obama is expected to address everything from climate change and fossil fuels to more mundane threats such as ISIS, Boko Haram, Turkey, Russia, and Saudi Arabia. As you watch the President explain how he is solving all these 'issues', bear in mind his statement from earlier today that the global pact on climate control is "an act of defiance" against terrorism that proves the world stands undeterred by ISIS. Yeah that really showed them, eh?! Note: Live feed in the article ... have a waste basket handy if you chose to watch!

    Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL)82% is warning Americans that under newly minted House Speaker Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI)58% ’s and Senate Majority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY)52% ’s planned government funding bill, President Barack Obama will be “allowed” to bring in 10,000 Syrian refugees and place them in American communities.

"Not only will the President be allowed to...

    News Corp CEO Rupert Murdoch, in a discursive speech Monday evening, blasted Secretary of State John Kerry and attacked the left for creating an "identity crisis" that he charged has undermined American strength and fostered terrorism around the world. And he drew a connection between U.S. foreign policy and domestic culture, arguing that “in recent years, there has been far too much institutionalization of grievance and victimhood."

    Tensions between Russia and Turkey continue to rise. Their relationship suffered a deadly blow when Turkey shot down a Russian jet last month. Ever since, Russia's President Putin and his Turkish counterpart Erdogan have gone after each other, both in public and privately. In the last few days, Putin has accused Turkey of buying ISIS oil. The Russian president is convinced that the terrorist group is shipping massive amounts of oil to the Turkish black market, where it's then sold for a relatively low price. Putin's accusations are backed up by Mowaffak al Rubaie, a former Iraqi Governing Council member...

    The Left's highly selective application of today's standards to yesterday's heroes. The latest round of condemning the past on the moral criteria of the present started with banning the Confederate flag from public places. Now it is on to airbrushing away progressive old white guy Woodrow Wilson, in Trotskyized fashion, from public commemoration. But do those on the Left realize that they are rapidly becoming captives to the consequences of their own ideology? Their current effort to rewrite the past is doomed to failure for a variety of reasons. Left-Wing Hypocrisy First, this damnation of memory is not a balanced...

    LE BOURGET, France — One of the smartest ways to fight global warming is putting a price on carbon dioxide pollution, some key world leaders said at Monday's international climate summit. Either a tax on carbon dioxide emissions or trading carbon pollution like pork bellies, which puts a price on carbon, will help use capitalism to get closer to a day when the world isn't adding heat-trapping gases to the atmosphere, according to leaders of France, Germany, Canada, Chile, Mexico and Ethiopia, as well as heads of the World Bank, International Monetary Fund and Organization of Economic Cooperation and Development....

    The EU has provisionally agreed to provide Turkey with €3 billion+ to supposedly spend on 'stemming the migrant flow' along with an easing of visa restrictions and a promise of accelerating talks about Turkey's accession to the EU. The EU has now conceded it is powerless to stem the tide of migrants and refugees on its own, and has opted to open Europe's doors to 75 million Turks. Through its desperate attempts to try and sort out the migrant crisis, the EU has shoved all its cards into the hands of the autocratic President Erdogan. This deal with Turkey will...
