    USA Watchdog ^ | 09 July 2014 | Greg Hunter
    Veteran journalist and author, James Howard Kunstler, is worried about the violence heating up in the Middle East–especially Saudi Arabia. Kunstler says, “Saudi Arabia is between a rock and a hard place, or should I say Iraq and a hard place. Both sides that are now contending in Iraq, the Shiite and the Islamic State or caliphate, are both not friendly with Saudi Arabia. When we talk about Saudi Arabia, we have to make a distinction. We are really talking about the Saud Family and their Kingdom and their gripe on the Kingdom. . . . Now, they are stuck...

    An audio produced by the group's media arm, the al-Malahem Foundation, and posted on militant websites said it offered three kilograms of gold worth $160,000 (£99,000) for killing the ambassador, Gerald Feierstein. The group said it will pay 5 million Yemeni riyals (£14,000) to anyone who kills an American soldier inside Yemen. It said the offer is valid for six months. The bounties were set to "inspire and encourage our Muslim nation for jihad," the statement said.

    CAIRO (AP) — The Egyptian pound fell to a record low against the dollar Sunday as the central bank stepped into the market to try to stabilize trading and stop an anxious public that has been buying up dollars for fear of an even bigger dive in the local currency, bankers said. The pound slid more than 3 percent on the first trading day after the central bank introduced a new dollar auction system that bankers said appeared designed to allow a "controlled devaluation" of the Egyptian pound. Many economists consider the pound overvalued and propped up by the government,...

    Obama going after oil speculators while holding fund raisers with the criminals who brought down the financial system. That was a cute move by President Obama last week, calling out the “oil speculators” with a memo to his Attorney General, Eric Holder. The President proved a few weeks ago, in his energy speech to the nation, he doesn’t understand how these resources are produced and traded. Consequently, the people he addressed remain clueless, but ticked off nonetheless. And the logic of politics now compels Mr. Obama to call out the dogs on… people who make money trading paper claims on...

    GUATEMALA CITY -- Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said the U.S. is "part of the problem" in Central America's worsening drug trade, and is working to reduce demand at home while assisting neighbors in their fight against traffickers. "The United States under the Obama administration recognizes and accepts its share of responsibilities for the problems posed by drug trafficking in this region," Mrs. Clinton said today at a news conference at the Presidential Palace in Guatemala City, before meeting with regional presidents. "That's an admission that we have been willing to make this past year," she said, adding the...

    Just when every poll has Hillary slipping, she has gotten a shot in the arm from a very unlikely source: President George W. Bush. In an interview on Tuesday featuring the first couple and Charles Gibson, the president said of Mrs. Clinton "No question, there is no question that Sen. Clinton understands pressure better than any of the candidates, you know, in the race because she lived in the White House and sees it first — could see it first-hand." By saying that she “understands the klieg lights,” Bush lent credence to Hillary’s campaign assertion that she could “hit the...

As a short-term political consequence, we may avoid another dim-witted Bush in the White House. But what the Bush dynasty has done to presidential campaign science — the protocols by which Americans elect presidents in the modern era — amounts to a political legacy that can haunt the Republic for years to come.

Jean Lewis, an investigator with the government's Resolution Trust Corporation, was able to piece together a complicated Arkansas bank fraud conspiracy from a treasure trove of documents she unearthed in an out-of-the-way Kansas City warehouse. The result was the Whitewater scandal, which, after six years' worth of twists and turns, ended in the first impeachment of an elected president in U.S. history. New York Sen. Hillary Clinton surely hopes that history isn't repeating itself with the raid conducted by...

    Though Hillary Clinton's former finance chairman David Rosen was actually indicted in 2003, the Bush administration kept it secret till the indictment was unsealed late Friday, a move that spared the former first couple and the Democratic Party significant embarrassment during the height of the 2004 presidential campaign. "The indictment was handed down more than a year ago," the Los Angeles Times reported Saturday. Citing "sources familiar with the probe," the Times said the Bush Justice Department decided that any criminal charges would not be made public until after last fall's presidential election for fear they would be seen as...

    WASHINGTON - A top aide in Sen.

The Justice Department alleges that David Rosen, Clinton's former campaign finance director, misstated the cost of the fund-raiser to free up more cash for the Democrat's 2000 election. Campaign staffers have denied the books were cooked.

    WASHINGTON – The indictment of Sen. Hillary Clinton’s former Senate campaign finance chairman, David Rosen, on campaign finance charges was made possible by the cooperation of Judicial Watch client Peter Paul, the public interest watchdog group said today. Paul, a former Hollywood Internet entrepreneur and partner of "Spiderman" creator Stan Lee, spent nearly $2 million to produce the August 2000 Hollywood tribute to honor President Clinton and to help raise funds for Hillary Clinton’s 2000 U.S. Senate campaign – the event at the center of the indictment. He was repeatedly assured that his expenses would be reported to the Federal...

Pundits are...
