Call it Caliphate, UN style.
Ted Turner’s United Nations Foundation closing the gate on Free Society

 By Judi McLeod Full Story

Freedom and individual rights will be nothing but archaic words when a high-handed United Nations gets to deliver its upcoming, etched-in-concrete 2015 Global Social and Environmental Agenda, effectively imprisoning humanity for the next 15 years and beyond.

President Obama to Use the UN to Stab Israel in the Back
 By Joseph A. Klein Full Story

President Barack Obama visited an influential conservative Washington D.C. synagogue on May 22nd with the avowed purpose of assuring his audience of about 1000 people that his “commitment to Israel’s security is and always will be unshakeable.” Donning a yarmulke and speaking from the synagogue sanctuary’s bimah where the Torah is recited, Obama claimed that “no U.S. President, no administration has done more to ensure that Israel can protect itself than this one.” Carried away by his own self-proclaimed support for Israel, he declared himself an “honorary member of the tribe.”

Josh Duggar, Atheists, and Pedophiles
 By Tim Dunkin Full Story

By now, many readers have probably heard about the recent revelation that Josh Duggar, the oldest son of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar of 19 Kids and Counting fame, has admitted to molesting some young girls a decade ago when he was a teenager. The information about this came out recently when a heavily redacted police report from 2006 was released by In Touch Weekly detailing the incidents. Duggar has since apologized for the acts, even as the scandal has grown and the Duggar’s television show has been pulled from TLC.

GREAT NEWS: Appeals Court to Obama: NO, YOU CANNOT!
 By John Lillpop Full Story

In yet another devastating blow to Barack Obama’s unlawful attempt to use his phone and pen to circumvent the US Constitution, an Appeals court has upheld an injunction against Executive Orders issued by Obama to implement unilateral amnesty for millions of illegal aliens.

Barack "Climate Change" Obama
 By Alan Caruba Full Story

“Woe to the land that’s governed by a child.” - Shakespeare, Richard III

I have been wrestling for some kind of explanation why the President of the United States, Barack Obama, would continue to talk about climate change and urge the global transition from fossil fuels to wind, solar and bio-energy. I have concluded that he thinks everyone, not just Americans, are idiots.

Biker Shootout: Libs Going Wacko over Race in Waco
 By Selwyn Duke Full Story

Leftists are upset about what they view as a double standard with respect to the Baltimore/Ferguson affair and the recent Waco gang shootout. They're right, too -- there sure is a double standard.

Pelosi: We're totally winning the war against ISIS. Y'know. On Twitter & stuff

Pelosi: We're totally winning the war against ISIS. Y'know

MSNBC has a new show! It's hosted by former Pennsylvania Representative Patrick Murphy (D-of course). It's called "Taking the Hill" and this weekend it featured an appearance by everyone's favorite former Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi.

Murphy asked Pelosi about Obama's failing battle against ISIS, but Pelosi wasn't interested in admitting that things aren't going so well. Instead, she decided to highlight one of the areas where we are, apparently, making some truly "impressive advances" against our barbaric opponents.

NYT: U.S. knows exactly where ISIS headquarters is, but doesn't attack for fear of accidentally killing civilians
 By Dan Calabrese Full Story

You'd think it would represent a major blow to ISIS if you could take out its headquarters - and apparently U.S. forces know exactly where ISIS headquarters is located. Specifically we're talking about seven buildings in Raqqa, Syria. Furthermore, you'd think that if you had a shot at thousands of ISIS terrorists - the very ones who just took Ramadi and were running around in the open flaunting it - you'd take them out.

Memorial Day and What We Should be Remembering
 By Michael Fumento Full Story

It's Memorial Day in America. Time to celebrate spring with barbecues and the first trip to the beach. Solemnity is essentially forbidden. Except among we "brave few," as Shakespeare famously put it in Henry V, "We band of brothers."

Ramadi and Obama's Phony Air War Against ISIS
 By Michael Fumento Full Story

"The Cemetery of the Americans." That's what graffiti said in the western Iraq city of Ramadi when I first embedded there in 2006. Indeed, my two journalist predecessors in Camp Corregidor were both shot be snipers. Within weeks the first SEAL to die in Iraq would be killed, another mortally wounded. My own Public Affairs officer was killed, and later the first SEAL to win the Medal of Honor in Iraq would die there. It was the hardest-fought battle of the war, but we won.

 By Matthew Vadum Full Story

How to Kill the Coal Industry: Implement EPA’s “Clean Power Plan”
 By Institute for Energy Research   --Global Warming-Energy-Environment

The Energy Information Administration (EIA) just released its report analyzing the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) so-called “Clean Power Plan” and finds that it will shutter many more coal-fired power plants.(i] Coal-fired power plants are already shuttering due to onerous EPA regulations and more will close due to this proposed plan, according to EIA. Today, coal generates 39 percent of the nation’s electricity; by 2030, its share will be reduced to 25 percent if EPA’s proposed plan is implemented. As a result, coal miners will lose their jobs as U.S. coal production takes a major hit over the next decade.

Wolf Trap - Act I - Habeas Corpus
 By Gary Hunt   --American Freedom

Setting the Stage: Joseph Story called Habeas Corpus “the great bulwark of personal liberty.” He did so as he, as well as did other legal scholars and various Supreme Court decision, because the founders knew that overarching government might attempt to suppress the rights of the people that had been so recently won, at great cost to the people. The inclusion of the “sacred writ” in the Constitution was to assure that their posterity would always have a means of challenging the federal government, when it went beyond those limits set by the Constitution.

The Jihad Caucus
 By James Simpson   --American Politics
The United States allows 70,000 people from all over the world to obtain legal permanent residence through our Refugee Program—one of the most generous in the world. We also bring in another 40,000 or so through the Asylum program. Then there is the Special Immigrant Visa for people from Iraq and Afghanistan—about 10,000 in FY 2014—and a Cuban/Haitian Entrant program bringing in another 20,000 annually. That adds up to about 140,000.

Bernie Sanders announces he would welcome the return of the 90% tax rate
 By Robert Laurie   --American Politics

A few weeks ago, when Bernie Sanders announced he’d be running against the “inevitable” President Clinton, I got all excited. Why is that? Well, as I said at the time, the Vermont socialist is completely unelectable for a whole host of reasons. They range from petty things like “appearance” to completely legitimate items like “utterly insane policy positions.” In the end it all adds up to the same thing. Sanders won’t make even the smallest of dents in the primaries, let alone claw his way into the general. However, as he self immolates, he could deal a little splash damage to the Democrat Party and Hillary Clinton.

Saudis gave $10 million to Clinton Foundation, then Hillary OKd an enormous Saudi arms deal
 By Dan Calabrese   --American Politics

Bribery will get you everywhere with Hillary Clinton, and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has money to burn. So even though the State Department officially objected to the policies of the Saudi royal family, and our allies in Israel raised serious objections because of the way it would affect the region’s balance of power, Hillary actually considered it a top personal priority to approve the sale of $29 billion worth of advance fighter jets to the Saudis.

Why would Hillary do this? I’d give you three guesses but I’m sure you wouldn’t need the last two. Some things are just that predictable, as International Business Times reports:

Why isn't Obama demanding Iran release WaPo reporter Jason RezaianIn addition to everything else that’s wrong with the nuclear deal Barack Obama and John Kerry are pursuing with Iran (chiefly, that it clears the way for Iran to have nuclear weapons), the administration is rushing headlong into finalizing the deal without demanding the release of Jason Rezaian as a condition.

The Race for the White House: What the “Invisible Primary” Has Taught Us So Far
 By INSS--Oded Eran, Owen Alterman   --American Politics

The long campaign for the US presidency is well underway. The spate of campaign launches in recent weeks only formalizes what has been unfolding for months, namely, the so-called “invisible primary,” in which candidates jockey behind the scenes to raise money, hire campaign staff, and win over key activists. Voters have eight months to wait before even the first of the caucuses and primaries. Still, among the donors and activists, much is taking place, some of it of interest to Israel.
