God’s Daybreak Comfort to Those in Despair
 By Judi McLeod Full Story

Internet trolls out there wait for columns like this one.

Feeling that inestimable sadness of the heart with all that is going on in our world, I went back out onto my deck just before sunrise yesterday morning to be there for God’s daily morning orchestra, the real Twitter: the spine tingling birdsong that announces the beginning of each and every day.  In unison, the birds, like the angels of another realm so many long to someday see, join together in song to praise another dawn.

Intelligence insider on Ukraine: The other road to World War III
 By Doug Hagmann Full Story

Readers who followed my many reports exposing the truth about the September 11, 2012 attack of the CIA compound in Benghazi that killed four Americans have witnessed the painfully slow process of that truth gradually evolving into the mainstream, validating my information and source. From beginning to end, the West, and particularly Americans, were lied to about nearly every aspect of our involvement in Libya, Syria and the entirety of the “Arab Spring” in the Middle East.

Hamas’s UN Shield
 By Joseph A. Klein Full Story

Hamas not only uses civilian human shields in Gaza to protect its operatives and weapons. It hides behind the diplomatic propaganda shield that the UN too willingly provides.

A view from inside the halls of power in Israel

Recently, I interviewed in depth a leading expert on the politics in the Middle East who is also a welcomed visitor to the PMO.  What he had to say, fascinated me.

The Long-Awaited Investigation into Alexander V. Litvinenko’s Murder
 By Arnold Ahlert Full Story

The Long-Awaited Investigation into Alexander V. Litvinenko’s Murder

On Tuesday, nearly eight years after former KGB officer-turned-dissident Alexander V. Litvinenko was killed by radioactive poisoning, the British government announced it was opening a formal investigation into the matter. The decision is likely to further strain already tenuous relations between Russia and Great Britain, who are at odds regarding Russia’s annexation of Crimea, their support of Bashar Assad in Syria, and their possible complicity in the downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17.

Egypt’s “cold war” with the U.S.
 By Dr. Ashraf Ramelah Full Story

An unusual security search at the entrance of the Egyptian presidential palace in Cairo took place two days ago as reported by Egyptian newspapers and the Italian RAI 24 news. John Kerry and his staff were asked to go through a metal detector, and one staff member was asked to show the contents of his pockets before visiting President Al-Sisi. This humiliating reversal of protocol was a sign of mistrust towards the U.S. by an Egypt never shy about expressing hostility for America’s support of the Morsi regime. Kerry’s visit to Egypt was for the purpose of brokering peace between Israel and Gaza (the Hamas terrorist organization). 

Why would Hamas negotiate with John Kerry after getting $47 million from him?

Why would Hamas negotiate with John Kerry after getting $47 million from him

Viet Nam Swift Boater, Secretary of State, big brave John Kerry defied a Federal Aviation Administration ban by flying into into Israel’s main airport Wednesday. TEL AVIV, Israel (CBS News/CBSDC/AP)  Some called it a sign of “sheer”  will to achieve a cease-fire agreement in the warring Gaza Strip.  Others, who called it so much hooey, remembered that the previous Secretary of State Hillary Clinton at least underwent “sniper fire” when landing in Bosnia.

House Border Crisis Plan: DOA
 By Arnold Ahlert Full Story

House Border Crisis Plan: DOA

House Republicans offered a dozen recommendations Wednesday to address the illegal immigration crisis. “Our focus has been to ensure the safety of the children and it has remained a top priority throughout this process,” said task force leader Rep. Kay Granger (R-TX). “In our personal meetings with the Presidents of Honduras and Guatemala they both stated that they wanted their children back, and we believe that is in the best interest of all the countries involved in this crisis. We look forward to working with these countries as they prepare to receive their children back.”

The Immigration Surge has nothing to do with immigration
 By Alan Joel Full Story

One month ago (in June), the topic of immigration was at 5%.

Today? It’s 17%. According to a Gallup poll released a few days ago, immigration has surged to the top of the list as “the Most Important U.S. Problem”. This replaces “dissatisfaction with government” (16%).

Should the Government Tell You What to Eat?
 By Alan Caruba Full Story

Given the successive scandals and monster laws like Obamacare that have been imposed on Americans, the federal government’s efforts to control and determine what you eat doesn’t receive the attention that it should. The ultimate question is whether the government should tell you what to eat and then seek to enforce their views about it? The answer is no.

Conscientious Objector Gordon Hirabayashi: The Constitution Protects Us

On Saturday, April 5, 2014, I attended a presentation hosted by the Japanese American Historical Society of Southern California and the City of Torrance Public Library:

A Principled Stand: The story of Hirabayashi v. United States

Statism is the Disease, Fueled by Human Nature
 By Douglas V. Gibbs Full Story

In 1787 a group of delegates met in Philadelphia to create a new government, one based on limiting principles, individualism, and the concept that as free men our rights are natural rights given to us by Nature’s God.  Government, the founders determined, is necessary, but is also always prone to becoming tyrannical.  The way to best guard against the rise of tyranny is to divide power at all opportunity, and to create checks and balances to ensure the powerful do not collude with other parts of government, or that a minority of ruling elitists somehow gain control of the system and use it to force their will upon the people.

Home Sweet Home in Freight Shipping Containers
 By Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh Full Story

While the world is sizzling and percolating in conflicts and wars, and U.S. is roiling in manufactured crisis after crisis, real or imagined emergencies, overwhelmed by the constant invasion of illegal immigrants, The Washington Post writes on the front page, “Thinking inside the box on D.C. housing costs,” living in repurposed dinged freight shipping containers. Two days before, Deborah K. Dietsch featured “Thinking big in a small way.” (Michael Laris, July 21, 2014)

Democrats Led By Obama and Harry Reid Determined to Scuttle USA
 By Jerry McConnell Full Story

It has been obvious for a long time, at least getting close to six years since the incredibly unfortunate date of January 20, 2009, when Barack Obama was illegally sworn in as our 44th president, though unchallenged proof of his eligibility has yet to be presented.  Oh, yes, phony paperwork, badly handled and mismanaged, has been presented at times by the usurper himself, but it has always been exposed for the fraudulent state that it is in.

A Great Plan to Replace the EPA
 By Alan Caruba Full Story

For years now I have been saying that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) must be eliminated and its powers given to the fifty states, all of which have their own departments of environmental protection. Until now, however, there has been no plan put forth to do so.

Do we really want a parallel Sharia Compliant Economic System in the West?
 By Diane Weber Bederman Full Story

I discovered, quite by accident, that there is a Muslim based economy developing in Canada: Halal and Sharia Compliant Investments, with their own laws specific to Sharia law. It has been developing rather quietly for several years. I found a reference to the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce and Sharia compliant laws from 2011 on Blogwrath  after I had already lodged my own complaint with CIBC regarding these investments. I never heard back from CIBC but I did get a notification from Twitter that I was now being followed by the investment broker whom I had reported.

Calgary: Pro-Palestinian protesters aren't the problem, the cops are
 By Arthur Weinreb Full Story

As Canada Free Press reported, Pro-Palestinian demonstrations have taken place in many cities and countries throughout the West. These protests occasionally turned violent as did the one held last Friday in Calgary, Alberta. But what happened in Calgary was different.

 By Mitch Wolfe Full Story
