    Judicial Watch has obtained a full transcript of a teleconference between then White House top counterterrorism adviser John Brennan and members of the media. Brennan is now the Director of the Central Intelligence Agency. During the May 7, 2012 conference call, Brennan twice told TV terrorism consultants that US intelligence had “inside control” of a May 2012 terror plot. Brennan’s disclosure made headlines quickly, with Reuters reporting a few days later: The next day’s headlines were filled with news of a U.S. spy planted inside Yemen-based Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), who had acquired the latest, non-metallic model

    "On Bolton: You know that we had a committee meeting to vote him out [i.e. to the full Senate]. You know that we decided to take three additional weeks to investigate the new allegations and charges that have come in. I said, at the time, on the record, in the committee, and many times publicly: these are very serious allegations, and they deserve serious attention. And we should not move forward until we address these allegations....I have always taken the approach, and I think in the nine years I have been in the Senate I have only voted against one...

    U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was lucky that, being the top U.S. diplomat, her medical team had thought to do a follow-up MRI after her concussion last month, medical experts told ABC News on Tuesday. The doctors said that Clinton's latest health update -- cerebral venous thrombosis -- is a rare and potentially "life-threatening" condition, but one from which the globe-trotting secretary of state is likely to recover from. In an update from her doctors, Clinton's brain scans revealed a clot had formed in the right transverse venous sinus, and she was being successfully treated with anticoagulants. "She is...

    Mr. Obama took a break Sunday from studying and engaging in mock sessions with his staff at a five-star waterfront resort here to deliver pizzas to one of his nearby campaign offices and make a couple phone calls to supporters, just as he did while preparing for his first debate in Henderson, Nev., two weeks ago. He then took a seat between two women and picked up the phone. “I’m gonna do my work,” he said, adding: “Everybody’s so serious!”

    Bigfoot researcher and biologist John Bindernagel claims his research group has found evidence that the Yeti (a Russian "cousin" of the American Bigfoot) not only exists, but builds nests and shelters by twisting tree branches together. "We didn't feel like the trees we saw in Siberia had been done by a man or another mammal.... Twisted trees like this have also been observed in North America and they could fit with the theory that Bigfoot makes nests. The nests we have looked at are built around trees twisted together into an arch shape," Bindernagel told the British tabloid The Sun....

These are the Unions, Progressives, Communists, Marxists, Socialists, Anarchists – they bring the rage. They will organize and use the youth to rally. You are fodder to them and your life means nothing. They want to foment chaos and violence so the government has an excuse to clamp down on Americans. Don’t. Do. It.

    Technical difficulties, dwindling participation and possible sabotage sap momentum of Freedom Flotilla 2; 350 people expected to participate, as opposed to 1,500 originally expected by organizers. Withdrawn insurance deeds, alleged sabotage and Greek bureaucracy have dealt a setback to organizers of Freedom Flotilla 2, who said on Tuesday that departure to the Gaza Strip might be postponed until next week. In addition, a mere 350 people are expected to participate in the flotilla, as opposed to the 1,500 originally expected by the organizers. “There have been many obstacles and complaints. Some boats are not ready and it is not clear...

    Billionaire media investor Haim Saban said Wednesday he's planning to "take a serious look" at Newsweek magazine, which is on the auction block. Mr. Saban said Don Graham, chairman of Newsweek parent company Washington Post Co., rebuffed him two years ago when he inquired about buying Newsweek. Last week, however, the company announced it was putting Newsweek up for sale after deciding it couldn't make the magazine profitable. "I would be remiss if I didn't look at it now, but the world has significantly changed in the last two years, and not for the better," Mr. Saban said in an...

    A report by the human rights watchdog of the Organization of American States warns of a possible “threat to the life and physical integrity of the Jewish community in Venezuela” due to the Chavez regime’s violations of the political and human rights of its citizens. In a lengthy report publicized in late February, the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) accused the government of Venezuela of fostering an atmosphere of “political intolerance” and “a climate hostile to the free exercise of dissenting political participation.” It blasted the prevailing “citizen insecurity” in the country and saved its harshest criticism for “the...

    WASHINGTON – Three of every four Americans view climate change as a serious problem that will harm future generations if not addressed, according to an Associated Press-Stanford University poll. The survey also said that about the same number of people say the Earth probably already is warming, slightly fewer than the percentage expressing that view when asked the same question a year ago. The AP-Stanford poll of 1,005 adults contacted by telephone in November suggests that people's concerns about climate change have not changed significantly. That's contrary to several other recent surveys. In October, according to a poll of 1,500...

    My wife was listening to Glenn Beck’s radio program, this morning. She informs me that Glenn Beck says that the White House called his “red phone” yesterday at the end of his FOX News TV show. Evidently, the White House was upset that Glenn Beck interviewed Michael Goldfarb, author of the Offutt AFB closure threat report. In the interview, Goldfarb stood by his report. Glenn Beck, prefacing the story as a rumor, also stated that he confirmed this story with three sources. But, the White House vociferously denies the story.

    It was a simple question. It was the kind of question legendary members of Congresses past would have asked themselves about pending legislation. In fact, it was the kind of question that shouldn't need to be asked of a U.S. speaker of the House. But, obviously, it is the kind of question that is not being asked frequently enough of such officials. It came more than a week ago from a member of the "alternative" media, and it was indeed directed to Nancy Pelosi. It went like this: "Madame Speaker, where specifically does the Constitution grant Congress the authority to...

    Jews worry for a living; their tragic history compels them to do so. In the next few years, there will be plenty to worry about, particularly when it comes to Israel. The current operation in Gaza won't do much to ease these worries or to address Israel's longer-term security needs. The potential for a nuclear Iran, combined with the growing accuracy and lethality of Hamas and Hizbullah rockets, will create tremendous concern. Anxiety may also be provoked by something else: an Obama administration determined to repair America's image and credibility and to reach a deal in the Middle East. Don't...

    We all knew Barack Obama is a Sox fan, but he took it a bit further in an ESPN interview. Obama joked about the stereotype of Cubs fans, who probably are tired of being described as partying people-watchers instead of serious fans. "You go to Wrigley Field, you have a beer, beautiful people up there,'' Obama said, according to ESPN transcripts. "People aren't watching the game. It's not serious. White Sox, that's baseball." The interview took place Wednesday in Greensboro, N.C., and aired on SportsCenter Monday night. Here are excerpts of Obama's comments to ESPN's Stuart Scott. The interview will...

    Once there was a Pope named Peter? One day Jesus asked two questions to his disciples. The first: Who do men say that the Son of Man is? (Matthew 16:13). The second more personal "But you, who do you say that I am?" Do you believe what the people’s opinion are of him or do you have one of your own. In v.16 Peter spoke up and answered “Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.” Jesus now turned to Peter and made a series of statements. One is where the revelation came from. Jesus tells him that...

    WASHINGTON, Jan. 9, 2008 – President Bush today warned Iran against attacking U.S. vessels in the Strait of Hormuz. “There will be serious consequences if they attack our ships, pure and simple,” Bush said during a press conference in Jerusalem. “And my advice to them is, don't do it.” Bush was referring to an incident in which five high-speed Iranian boats reportedly threatened to attack the USS Port Royal, USS Hopper and USS Ingraham as they were entering the Persian Gulf on Jan. 7. Defense officials said the Iranian boats maneuvered aggressively, threatened the U.S. ships via radio and...

    Serious drought may strike western US 19:00 05 April 2007 From New Scientist Print Edition. Michael Reilly The western US may be heading towards a return to the dustbowl landscape that devastated the prairies of the 1930s, climatologists warn. The horror of that period in the US was vividly described in John Steinbeck's novel The Grapes of Wrath: thousands of people migrated from the parched American prairie – a dustbowl – and travelled west towards the "promised land". But the once-greener pastures are heading towards a drought more severe than the one that created the dustbowl of the 1930s.For the...
