Obama Exposed in Scandal Helping the Islamic State

Via Joe

It’s no surprise that President Barack Obama is dragging his feet when it comes to engaging with the serious threat that is the Islamic State terror group.

But now it appears that the Obama administration is actually hindering the efforts of allies who are more willing to take on the brutal jihadists.

Lt. Col. Oliver North told Greta Van Susteren on Tuesday night that both Egypt and Jordan have requested information from the United States regarding Islamic State group targets in Libya and Syria, respectively, but the intelligence was denied them.

Goodbye Internet

Via Billy

For several months now I have been seeing tidbits on the Internet about internet regulation, a little something here and a little something there. Some articles have said it’s really bad and others have sought to paint it as the last best hope for man. When anything is supposed to be that “good” for us, I get suspicious. I begin to wonder who it will really be “good” for, us, the unwashed masses, or the One World elitists in Washington who claim they represent us. Usually it ends up being good for them and bad for us and Internet regulation, like Obamacare, is no exception to this rule.

Most of us realize that the Internet is the one remaining source of real information out there that the federal government has not, until now, been able to muzzle. I imagine there are countless thousands like me who get their news off the Internet rather than from the federally-approved and controlled “news” media.

I notice that, on the 26th of this month, the FCC will vote on implementing a new “net neutrality” regulation. That sounds so nice and “neutral” doesn’t it—no sides taken, just a nice neutral approach to all issues and questions, right? Folks, in all honesty, if the feds are running it you have to know it ain’t gonna work out that way. The real aim of this regulation is to neutralize all the information the feds don’t want on the Internet so it will be unavailable to the public.

Obama: America Must Make Muslims Feel More Comfortable

Via  Michael via NC Renegade

Blithering idiot.

Barack Obama, in a column for the Los Angeles Times, tries to explain his position regarding the “threat” facing the United States, mentioning al Qaeda, ISIL, the massacres at Fort Hood and the Boston Marathon, but in the process, reveals his Marxist leanings, his refusal to acknowledge the religious nature of the threat, his belief in the racism of the United States against Muslims, and ironically, his agreement with George W. Bush that regime change is the answer to the global threat.

Obama begins with his usual self-puffery: “The United States has made significant gains against terrorism. We've decimated the core al Qaeda leadership, strengthened homeland security and worked to prevent another large-scale attack like 9/11.”

But facts, as they say, are stubborn things, so Obama immediately segues to reality: “At the same time, the threat has evolved.” He lists terrorists’ actions around the globe, and naturally avoids naming the common thread:

Jim Webb: Here Comes Trouble

Could that be Jim Webb? Across the parking lot of the Eden Center, a Vietnamese-American strip mall in the Washington suburb of Falls Church, I've spotted a smallish figure in a tan ball cap, jeans, and boots, huddled against the bitter cold of an early February afternoon and peering around.

Webb's communications director, Craig Crawford, had told me to meet the one-term Virginia senator under the Vietnamese flag—the old South Vietnamese flag, actually, the bright yellow one with the red stripes. That's where this fellow is standing. Even as I draw closer, and he waves tentatively, he looks less like a man who might be running for president than an early retiree running errands.

But it's Jim Webb, all right. If there were any doubt, it's gone once he gets on the phone with Crawford, who has gotten lost on the spidery highways of Northern Virginia. "Where are you?" Webb barks into his phone. "Do you see the Vietnamese flag? What? What are we doing? We're out here freezing our asses off!"

He shoots me a conspiratorial grin, as if to reassure me that he's only mock-angry—not flashing the temper that folks in Washington are forever tut-tutting about—then says, "Come on." He leads the way toward his favorite "hole-in-the-wall" restaurant, the Banh Cuon Saigon.

Obama and the Muslim Gang Sign

Is President Obama a Muslim?  A lot has been written about this, but if photographs speak louder than words, then a photo taken at last August’s U.S.-African Leaders’ Summit in Washington D.C. might shed considerable light.

It shows Barack Hussein Obama flashing the one-finger affirmation of Islamic faith to dozens of African delegates.

Debaltseve Breakout: Sergeant 'Volodomyr' “A third of us made it at most”
Rebels report ammunition dump left by Ukraine troops

The order to retreat was kept secret until the last minute, and soldiers were told to prepare in 10 minutes and pile into the beds of troop transport trucks, according to Albert Sardaryen, a 22-year-old medic who made the journey.

The trucks lined up on the edge of town, Mr. Sardaryen said, while tanks and tracked vehicles formed lines on either side of the truck convoy to try to shield the soldiers. The column drove through farm fields rather than use a main road that had been mined, and the trucks kept their headlights off to make them harder to spot.

The column came under attack almost immediately, he said, and trucks started breaking down and colliding in the dark. By dawn, the column was strung out on the plain and taking fire from all sides.
“They were shooting with tanks, rocket propelled grenades and sniper rifles,” and firing at the disintegrating column with rockets, he said. Dead and wounded soldiers were left on the snowy fields because there were too many of them to carry once the trucks were hit.

“We stabilized them, applied tourniquets, gave them pain killers and tried to put them in a place with better cover,” Mr. Sardaryen said of the wounded. Later, a Ukrainian unit from outside the encirclement drove in to try to retrieve the wounded, he said.

Mr. Sardaryen said he ran on foot for the final four miles or so. Many of the soldiers who made it out also did so on foot, though some trucks made it all the way through, he said.

Teen Sex Conference Teaches Kids To Do Meth

Via Michael


The Adolescent Sexuality Conference is held each April in Seaside, Oregon. The theme for the 2014 edition was “Building Blocks of Youth Sexual Health”, and they say about 25% of the attendees are youths. Their webpage says the conference “is for educators, health personnel, administrators, counselors, social and youth service workers, parents, clergy, teen parent program staff, teens, community members and others who wish to increase their knowledge and skills in addressing adolescent sexuality issues.  Emphasis is on covering a wide spectrum of adolescent sexuality topics.”
One of the primary sponsors and presenters of the conference is the Cascade AIDS Project, which has published several pamphlets for the event. One such pamphlet is called “A Young Males Guide To… An informative zine for guys who like guys“, and though they claim this is intended for those over 18, it is littered with little drawings that appeal more to a 9 year old than a 19 year old.

Embattled Debaltseve falls to Ukraine rebels; troops retreat

Published on Feb 18, 2015
The battle between Ukrainian forces and pro-Russia separatists (DNR) for Donetsk Airport has raged for months, bringing significant losses on both sides. In late January, the airport fell to the DNR, ending Ukrainian forces’ hold on the site. The now unrecognizable airport lies in ruins.


VICE News travelled to Donetsk Airport, a once modern facility now reduced to rubble after months of fighting, to discuss with DNR fighters the battle for, and the future of, the strategically important site.

After weeks of relentless fighting, the embattled Ukrainian rail hub of Debaltseve fell Wednesday to Russia-backed separatists, who hoisted a flag in triumph over the town. The Ukrainian president confirmed that he had ordered troops to pull out and the rebels reported taking hundreds of soldiers captive.

Associated Press reporters saw several dozen Ukrainian troops retreating with their weapons Wednesday morning from the town in eastern Ukraine, covered in dirt and looking exhausted. Some were driving to the nearby town of Artemivsk in trucks while several others, unshaven and visibly upset, were on foot.

One soldier spoke of heavy government losses, while another said they had not been able to get food or water because of the intense rebel shelling. A third spoke of hunkering down in bunkers for hours, unable to even go to the toilet because of the shelling. They smoked cigarettes in the frigid winter air and gratefully accepted plastic cups of tea given to them by locals.

"We're very happy to be here," the hungry soldier told the AP. "We were praying all the time and already said goodbye to our lives a hundred times."

Gun rights groups await judge's ruling on California's 'microstamping' law

 Image result for Gun rights groups await judge's ruling on California's 'microstamping' law

California's gun laws are among the nation's strictest, but a looming decision in a federal lawsuit could effectively ban handguns altogether in the Golden State, according to plaintiffs who want a judge to toss out a state law requiring all new handguns to be equipped with technology that "stamps" each shell casing with a traceable mark.

The problem with the “microstamping” law, which was signed into law by then-Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger in 2007 but only took effect in 2013, is that it relies on an unworkable technology, according to gun manufacturers and attorneys for the Second Amendment Foundation and Calguns Foundation. If guns without the technology can't be sold in California, and gun manufacturers can't implement the technology, the law is, for practical purposes, a handgun ban that violates the Second Amendment, goes the argument.

‘Boats Full of Terrorists’: New Documents Say Islamic State Aims to Use Libya as a ‘Strategic Gateway’ to Southern Europe

Via Joe

The Islamic State group may be planning to use Libya as a staging ground to send boatloads of jihadi militants posing as migrants to flood southern Europe, create “pandemonium” and close down shipping lines, according to a recruiting document circulating among the group’s fighters.

The document, titled “Libya: The Strategic Gateway for the Islamic State,” describes how important some members of the militant group believe Libya to be due to its proximity to Europe and its vast arsenal of weapons that could potentially be seized by the group.

The January document was translated this week by the U.K.-based Quilliam Foundation, which tracks extremist militant groups.

Truth and Lies about South African History: Blacks Are Not “Indigenous” and Arrived at Same Time as Whites

 Black tribal areas, secured, not defined, by the 1913 Land Act.

The recent uproar in South Africa over the claims by ANC president Jacob Zuma that the 1913 Land Act dispossessed blacks is a blatant lie, and forms part of four core lies about South African history, a New Observer correspondent Yochanan has written.

Submitted in the comment section of this newspaper, Yochanan’s remarks are so pertinent that they deserve greater publicity:

“We let them out once, and now they’ve come back to fight with us again. We told them to surrender in Debaltseve, but they didn’t. Now we’re not going to let anyone out,” says Sergey, nicknamed “Kunduz,” the company commander from Uglegorsk who has been fighting from Slavyansk since May.

“As soon as our enemy started to run out of breath, suddenly it’s time for peace, we lay down our weapons? Did our comrades die for nothing?”


 Horrific Images Capture The Sheer Brutality Of War In Ukraine

LOGVINOVE, Ukraine — When Russian-backed rebels went on the offensive in east Ukraine a month ago, the focal point of the clashes quickly switched to Debaltseve, a strategically key rail junction linking their two unsanctioned states. For weeks, Ukraine’s government denied rebel claims to have the town surrounded, even as artillery fire prompted most civilians to flee, killed hundreds, and destroyed the town beyond recognition.

On Tuesday, however, rebels seized most of the town and took several Ukrainian soldiers captive. A catastrophic defeat is now all but inevitable. In the days preceding their victory, photographer Max Avdeev embedded with the First Slavyansk Brigade of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic in the nearby town of Logvinove. The rebels had just seized the town, cutting Debaltseve off from the last road leading to Ukrainian territory. The soldiers were mostly local volunteers, though their commanding officers were Russian — as were the men who delivered them tanks and artillery. As the deadline for a new cease-fire deal came and went overnight on Sunday, the rebels kept on shelling Debaltseve.
