    Europeans who are joining ISIS make up one big reason the rise of terrorism isn’t going to be thwarted anytime soon, an expert on the subject told a congressional panel. “At least 5,000 to 6,000 Europeans who have fought alongside ISIS and other Islamist groups in Syria and Iraq are now returning to their home countries,” Heritage Foundation scholar Robin Simcox testified Tuesday. Simcox, the Margaret Thatcher fellow at the conservative think tank, specializes in terrorism and national security. He said the terrorist threat is becoming more widespread across Europe, pointing to Germany as an example. {..snip..}
  • Report: New evidence of rising 'Obamacare' premiums (an average of 11 percent next year)

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Premiums for popular low-cost medical plans under the federal health care law are expected to go up an average of 11 percent next year, said a study that reinforced reports of sharp increases around the country in election season. For consumers, the impact will depend on whether they get government subsidies for their premiums, as well as on their own willingness to switch plans to keep the increases more manageable, said the analysis released Wednesday by the nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation.
  • A rising Islamic world: We are coming for you!

    "An awakening and rising Islamic world — a more militant faith than Christianity or secularism — is saying to the West: We want you out of our part of the world, and we are coming to your part of the world, and you cannot stop us." - Pat Buchanan. See here. There are still some, including sadly many within the Church such as Bishop Robert McManus, who believe that the Church and the West can "dialogue" with Islam, which is a manifestation of Antichrist. Apparently the message of 9/11 was lost on such people. The date of this heinous and...
  • Greenhouse gas levels rising at fastest rate since 1984 (according to new WMO figures)

    A surge in atmospheric CO2 saw levels of greenhouse gases reach record levels in 2013, according to new figures. Concentrations of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere between 2012 and 2013 grew at their fastest rate since 1984. The World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) says that it highlights the need for a global climate treaty. But the UK's energy secretary Ed Davey said that any such agreement might not contain legally binding emissions cuts, as has been previously envisaged. The WMO's annual Greenhouse Gas Bulletin doesn't measure emissions from power station smokestacks but instead records how much of the warming gases remain...
  • Magma rising in Washington state's Mount St. Helens volcano: USGS (NO eruption imminent)

    SEATTLE (Reuters) - Magma levels are slowly rebuilding inside Mount St. Helens, a volcano in Washington state that erupted in 1980 and killed 57 people, although there was no sign of an impending eruption, U.S. scientists said. ... "The magma reservoir beneath Mount St. Helens has been slowly re-pressurizing since 2008," the U.S. Geological Survey said in a statement on Wednesday. "It is likely that re-pressurization is caused by (the) arrival of a small amount of additional magma 4 to 8 km (2.5 to 5 miles) beneath the surface." The USGS said this is to be expected with an active...

    It happened with immigration. It happened with health care. And now, thank goodness, it is happening with the Obama land grabs. States are rising up to challenge federal abuses. More power to them. I’ve been reporting on the stealth Obama land and ocean grabs for the past year now. Quick review: Last August, I told you about the “Great Outdoors Initiative” to lock up more open spaces through executive order. This came on top on top of a separate, property-usurping initiative exposed by GOP Rep. Robert Bishop and Sen. Jim DeMint earlier this spring. According to an internal, 21-page Obama...

    Associated Press ^ | 4/14/11 | Christopher S. Rugaber
    Washington - A spike in the cost of gasoline pushed wholesale prices higher in March, a trend that could limit consumer spending in the coming months. Still, most economists don't expect that will lead to widespread inflation because businesses are wary of raising prices when most people aren't getting significant pay increases. (Snip) Diane Swonk, chief economist at Mesirow Financial, said the economy is seeing "a blip" in inflation because of the rise in gas prices, as well as higher foods costs. But "it is just very hard for the broader economy to hold price increases for very long when
  • Greenland Rising Rapidly as Ice Melts

    05/18/2010 2:24:44 PM PDT · by NormsRevenge · 48 replies · 1,223+ views
    The ice is melting so fast in Greenland that the giant island is rising noticeably as the weight is lifted. In some spots, the land is rising 1 inch per year. A vast ice cap covers much of Greenland, in some places up to 1.2 miles (2 km) thick. The ice, in place for eons, presses down the land, making the elevation at any given point lower than it would be sans ice. Scientists have documented on Greenland and elsewhere that when longstanding ice melts away, the land rebounds. Even the European Alps are rising as glaciers melt. Now, scientists...

    (IsraelNN.com) B'nai Brith Canada's annual audit on anti-Semitic incidents reported 1,264 such incidents in 2009, representing an 11.4% increase over 2008, and a more than five-fold increase in incidents over the past decade. There were 884 cases of harassment, 348 of vandalism. Incidents of violence doubled from last year, to 32. In addition, a survey of the Jewish community commissioned by B'nai Brith shows Canadian Jews deeply concerned about the rising influence of radical Islamism – an ideology that paints Jews as the enemy – and security threats to Jewish schools and houses of worship.

    New figures have revealed that sea levels along the coast of Western Australia are rising at a rate double that of the world average. Statistics from Australia's National Tidal Centre show levels have increased by 8.6mm a year off the coast of the state capital Perth. That compares to a global average of just over 3mm. Scientists have said that man-made climate change has played a significant role in the rise. Climatologists have said that a combination of natural variability and man-made pollution have caused sea levels to rise around the world. Double trouble For much of the past century...

    President Obama has vowed to create 3.5 million jobs by 2010. To reach his 3.5 million-jobs goal, Obama needs at least 138.6 million people employed by next year, leaving him with a job deficit of nearly 6.2 million jobs, according to the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank. "Policies like higher tax rates on small businesses, sustained massive budget deficits, doubling the national debt (and the consequent upward pressure on interest rates) and the building threats of government meddling in companies are eroding the foundations of the economy today and for the future," he said. The White House did not...

    The president of the low-lying Pacific atoll nation of Kiribati said Thursday his country may already be doomed because of climate change. President Anote Tong said communities had already been resettled and crops destroyed by seawater in some parts of the country, made up of 33 coral atolls straddling the equator. Although scientists are still debating the extent of rising sea levels and their cause, Tong told a press conference marking World Environment Day that changes were obvious in his country of 92,000 people. "I am not a scientist but what I know is that things are happening we did...

    The area between the old and new bus stations in south Tel-Aviv is on its way to becoming a ghetto made up of African refugees living in the most squalid of conditions and turning the already run-down area into a time bomb the municipality can no longer ignore. The few blocks adjacent to the new bus terminal are crawling with close to a thousand African refugees, with the lucky ones crammed into 8 dilapidated bomb-shelters while hundreds more sleep out in Lewinsky Park bordering Lewinsky, Har Zion, Levander, Matalon and Golomb streets. The area is already home to about 40,000...
