    President Obama announced Thursday that he is imposing sanctions on additional senior Russian officials and others over the country's annexation of Crimea, warning that broader economic sanctions could be in store if Russia does not stand down. The president, speaking on the South Lawn of the White House, voiced concern that Russian military positioning could point to "further incursions" into southern and eastern Ukraine. He also issued an executive order giving the U.S. authority to impose sanctions on "key sectors of the Russian economy."

    "No," said White House press secretary Jay Carney, Syrian President Bashar Assad should not doubt how serious the United States is about responding to evidence that the Syrian regime has used chemical weapons against its own people - but Carney added that we need to "build on" that evidence to be certain and would not provide a timetable for that investigation.

    The FBI briefed the Senate yesterday and today on the progress in the Boston Marathon bombing case, but more questions than answers may have arisen from it. The Boston Globe quotes multiple sources from within the briefing that the FBI didn’t just get one warning from Russia about Tamerlan Tsarnaev, they got warned repeatedly — including after the FBI’s initial investigation of the now-deceased bomber: Russian authorities contacted the US government with concerns about Tamerlan Tsarnaev not once but “multiple’’ times, including an alert it sent after he was first investigated by FBI agents in Boston, raising new questions about...

Eichenwald replied, "Actually, the counterterrorist center of the CIA did a spectacular job, and that's what really comes down.

    At least three possible tornadoes hit central Oklahoma early Saturday in a prelude to what forecasters warned could be a day of "life-threatening" storms in the nation's midsection. No injuries were immediately reported. Department of Emergency Management official Michelann Ooten said the possible tornadoes were reported west and north of Oklahoma City. One was spotted near Piedmont, a small town where a twister last May killed several people. The National Weather Service was working to confirm the reports. Weather Service meteorologist Kevin Brown told The Associated Press the storms were fairly weak but still damaged some homes. A tornado that...

    The federal government can require tobacco companies to “reserve significant packaging space” for anti-smoking warnings and graphic images on their cigarette labels, a three-judge appellate panel ruled Monday. “We return to where we began — the lack of consumer awareness of tobacco’s serious health risks resulting from the decades-long deception by tobacco companies,” Judge Jane Branstetter Stranch of the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati wrote in a ruling that was unanimous in some sections and 2-1 in others. Current tobacco-label warnings do not effectively inform consumers on these health risks, even though they include “the undisputed fact...

"I firmly believe apathy and complacency due to a high false alarm ratio over the years led to inaction in many cases that could have cost lives," Spann wrote in a wide-ranging blog post that has generated debate among weather watchers and fellow meteorologists.

A devout Muslim who plays a mean game of soccer but never learned to drive a car, Ghailani is also believed to be a key al Qaeda player who U.S. agents think is involved in a percolating terror plot aimed at disrupting America's upcoming elections.

    Liberal fascism sounds like an oxymoron – or a term for conservatives to insult liberals. Actually, it was coined by a socialist writer, none other than the respected and influential left-winger H.G. Wells, who in 1931 called on fellow progressives to become "liberal fascists" and "enlightened Nazis." Really. His words, indeed, fit a much larger pattern of fusing socialism with fascism: Mussolini was a leading socialist figure who, during World War I, turned away from internationalism in favor of Italian nationalism and called the blend Fascism. Likewise, Hitler headed the National Socialist German Workers Party. These facts jar because they...

    Save for the 9/11 attacks that leveled the World Trade Center, the United States has not had to confront the reality of suicide bombings. But for how much longer? If Americans fail to halt the partisan ankle-biting that has come to characterize most discussions of the War on Terror, and instead present a united front to the world, they will soon find out. That Saddam Hussein's Iraq was a key element in the worldwide terrorist network of which Osama bin Laden and al Qaeda were the kingpins is largely now beyond dispute. Stephen F.

    While the death tolls are still mounting from last week’s catastrophe in the Indian Ocean, some prominent religious leaders haven’t wasted any time engaging in politicking and opportunism. Last Thursday, Rev. Sam Kobia, general secretary of the World Council of Churches, and Rev. Ishmael Noko, general secretary of the Lutheran World Federation, issued statements rebuking the United States, among other nations, for not signing on to the Kyoto protocol. Don’t see the link between a massive earthquake and global warming? Kobia and Noko certainly do. The results of the disaster are “a clear warning on what climate change could to...

    Top Israel Rabbi, Indian Catholic Bishop, Anglican and Muslim Leaders Agree Tsunami is Warning from God JERUSALEM, January 3, 2005, (LifeSiteNews.com) - The recent catastrophe in Southeast Asia has led many to reflect on the shortness and instability of mortal life and turn their thoughts towards God. In the wake of the tsunami, religious leaders from various faith backgrounds have urged people to look at the disaster as a warning sign to a world which is far from God's ways. Israel's Chief Rabbi Shlomo Amar commented on the catastrophe last week saying "G-d is angry" and "we must pray more...

    A LEADING geologist repeatedly warned Indonesian officials that an earthquake and tsunami would soon strike their shores, it emerged this weekend. Kerry Sieh, professor of geology at California Institute of Technology, has been studying the region for nearly a decade. Last July he became so concerned at the likely massive loss of life that he printed and distributed 5,000 posters and brochures around some of the islands later hit by the earthquake. He addressed church congregations and schools to tell people what to do in an earthquake. His main advice was for people to live away from shorelines. Sieh had...

Sálvano Briceńo, director of the International Strategy for Disaster Reduction (ISDR), has called for immediate work to install a tsunami early warning system in the Indian Ocean such as already exists in the Pacific.

    Indonesian radio today reported mass sightings of an unidentified object that appeared to fall to earth west of Jakarta, followed by the sound of a strong explosion. Dozens of callers aired by the ElShinta radio spoke of a fast whitish object crossing the sky towards the west of Jakarta and a big explosion followed by what they said sounded like an echo. The sound of the explosion could be heard in Tanggerang, just west of Jakarta, the southern suburb of Depok and as far away as Bogor, some 60 km south of the capital. But police in Tanggerang, where many...

    We Are All Americans - Gregory Borse As you go into the voting booth on November 2nd, forget about jobs, forget about healthcare, forget about social security, forget about the economy. Think about the central issue of this presidential campaign: the war on terror. It has been three years since September 11, 2001. This is the first presidential election in a post-9/11 world, and the decision we make will determine the course not only of our country for the next for years, but, in many ways, the course of the world for generations to come. Shortly after the 9/11 attacks...

    THE RANT.US ^ | OCTOBER 28, 2004 | FRANK SALVATO
    October 26, 2004 - There is one thing John Kerry is consistent on: his propensity for manipulating the truth. From Vietnam to the floor of the senate to the halls of the United Nations, Kerry has stretched and exaggerated to create “the truth” and has done so without compunction. His latest “over the top” invention is his “two-hour meeting with the entire UN Security Council.” The crafting of this tale should tarnish his image in the eyes of his supporters, if not we should consider their intelligence highly suspect. Throughout his campaign he has embraced the mantra “Bush lied.” Starting...

    THE WARNING KERRY IGNORED By PAUL SPERRY -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- March 15, 2004 -- SEN. John Kerry boasts how he "sounded the alarm on terrorism years before 9/ 11," referring to his 1997 book "The New War." Too bad he didn't blast it when it really counted - four months before the hijackings, when he was hand-delivered evidence of serious security breaches at Logan International Airport, with specific warnings that terrorists could exploit them Former FAA security officials say the Massachusetts senator had the power to prevent at least the Boston hijackings and save the World Trade Center and thousands of lives,...

    Followers of Osama bin Laden, the suspected Saudi terrorist, gave warning three weeks ago that they would carry out a "huge and unprecedented attack" on American. interests, a London-based Arab journalist said today. Abdel-Bari Atwan, the editor of the Al-Quds al-Arabi newspaper, said that he received a warning from Islamic fundamentalists close to bin Laden, but did not take the threat seriously. "They said it would be a huge and unprecedented attack but they did not specify," Mr Atwan said in a telephone interview. "We usually receive this kind of thing. At the time we did not take the ...

    WASHINGTON (July 16) -- Al-Qaida may be recruiting non-Arabs less likely to attract the notice of security personnel to carry out attacks inside the United States, the FBI warned on Friday. The terror network especially seeks operatives who have U.S. citizenship or legal residency status, the FBI's counterterrorism division said in its weekly bulletin to 18,000 law enforcement agencies nationwide. ''Finding operatives with U.S. status would greatly facilitate al-Qaida's ability to carry out an attack within the United States,'' said the bulletin, obtained Friday by The Associated Press. The new warning comes amid a continuous stream of intelligence indicating that...

    I'm wondering how liberals can laugh this off. Seems to me that the same people now scoffing at any such threat would have busted a gut laughing on Sept. 10th at "any such threat" of 4 planes loaded with jet fuel, being used as deadly missiles aimed at the WTC, US Capitol and White House. Read below..........then continue to laugh, if you can. Paul Williams must be just another "nut," maybe like Brian Sullivan who hand-delivered (APRIL,04) proof TO JOHN F. KERRY, that planes from LOGAN AIRPORT were about to be used as weapons against cities in America! Kerry ignored...
