Australia To Fly Guns And Ammunition Into Iraq



Australia To Fly Guns And Ammunition Into Iraq

Stars and Stripes


An Australian military aircraft will soon fly guns and ammunition to the northern Iraqi city of Irbil to help Kurds fight Islamic State militants as part of a U.S.-led multination mission, Australia’s prime minister said on Sunday.

Prime Minister Tony Abbott said his government would join the United States, Britain, Canada, France and Italy in delivering rocket-propelled grenades, mortars and assault rifle ammunition at the request of the U.S. and Iraqi governments.


“While we understandably shrink from reaching out to these conflicts, the truth is that these conflicts reach out to us,” Abbott told reporters.

“None of us want to get involved in another Middle Eastern war, but it is important to do what reasonably can be done to avert potential genocide,” he added.

Australia will use air force C-130 Hercules and C-17 Globemaster planes based at al-Minhad Air Base outside Dubai to deliver weapons and ammunition provided by East European countries.

Australia has said it has F/A-18 Hornets standing ready to join U.S. airstrikes in Iraq if requested by the U.S. and Iraqi governments.

Abbott said Sunday the United States had not requested that Australia play a combat role. If such a request were made, Abbott said it would be considered if it fits the criteria of an achievable overall objective with a clear role for Australian forces. Safety risks must be considered and an overall humanitarian purpose must be in accordance with Australia’s national interest, he said.

Australian C-130s had previously made humanitarian airdrops including food and water to thousands of people stranded by fighting on Mount Sinjar in northern Iraq.

U.S. Officials Say Almost A Dozen Men From Minnesota Are Fighting With ISIS In Syria



U.S. Officials Say Almost A Dozen Men From Minnesota Are Fighting With ISIS In Syria


It has emerged that almost a dozen Minnesotans have left the Midwestern state to take up arms for Islamic extremist groups in the country.

The revelation follows the news that two Minnesota men were killed fighting for ISIS in Syria this past weekend. The White House confirmed that Douglas McArthur McCain, 33, who went to high school in Minneapolis, died while fighting Free Syrian Army rebels in Syria with the Islamic State.

A Minneapolis father-of-nine, Abdirahmaan Muhumed, 29, has been confirmed as the second American jihadi to die fighting for ISIS in Syria.

They are among almost a dozen Minnesotans out of the estimated 100 Americans who have joined the fighting in Syria.

The FBI’s Chief Division Counsel in Minneapolis, Kyle Loven, told ABC News that the phenomenon began in 2007, with Somali-Americans from the state traveling to Somalia.

‘In Somalia, it started as a nationalistic call… [but] we’ve now seen where some individuals perhaps are not interested or not inclined to travel to Somalia, [they] start to branch out to other hot spots around the globe, obviously Syria being among them,’ Loven told ABC.

Obama: Everything Just Seems Bad Because of Social Media - Obama has graduated from blaming GW Bush to blaming “Social Media.”



Obama: Everything Just Seems Bad Because of Social Media


At a Democratic National Committee fundraiser in New York Friday, President Obama attributed people's pervasive sense the world is falling apart to “social media.”

“The world’s always been messy… we’re just noticing now in part because of social media,” Obama said.

“I can see why a lot of folks are troubled,” he said. But American military superiority has never been greater, he added, according to a pool report.

Obama has faced withering criticism for taking a lengthy vacation that included nine rounds of golf, while terrorist group Islamic State (ISIS) has been on the march in Iraq, an Ebola crisis is spreading in Africa, and Russia is making increasingly aggressive moves against Ukraine.

“If you watch the nightly news, it feels like the world is falling apart,” Obama said. He said this is a time of extraordinary changes around the world. He cited several hotspots, saying, “We’ve seen the barbarity of an organization like ISIL.”

The Middle East is challenging, “but it’s been challenging for quite a while,” Obama said, adding that this challenge was not comparable to the Cold War.

Failure and Disgrace Obama: 'We Don't Have a Strategy' to Fight ISIS






Obama: 'We Don't Have a Strategy' to Fight ISIS

"We don’t have a strategy yet. We’re seeing some news reports suggesting we are further ahead than we are,” he said.

Obama said he is dispatching Secretary of State John Kerry to the area to work with allies, and ordered Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel to prepare “a range of options” as he considers future military action.

“As commander in chief, I will always do what is necessary to protect the American people,” he said during a news conference in the White House briefing room. “Our military action in Iraq has to be part of a broader comprehensive strategy

AFL-CIO And La Raza Lead Group Pushing For Obama To Give Illegals Access To Obamacare


AFL-CIO And La Raza Lead Group Pushing For Obama To Give Illegals Access To Obamacare

The Hill


A coalition of public health, labor and immigrant rights groups is urging President Obama to extend health coverage to immigrants allowed to remain in the United States under the administration’s controversial deferred action program.

The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA), initiated via executive action in 2012, allows certain immigrants who came to the United States illegally as children to stay in the country and work.

But under guidance and regulations issued that year, those immigrants — often called “Dreamers” in reference to the stalled DREAM Act — are not entitled to health coverage under the Affordable Care Act, federal Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program.

Roughly 80 national organizations, including the AFL-CIO, the National Council of La Raza and the American Public health Association, note in a letter to Obama that tax dollars from the DACA grantees help support those programs.

“To continue to restrict immigrants’ access to affordable health coverage and care is to undermine values of fairness and opportunity, and this administration’s own achievements in expanding access to coverage, lowering healthcare costs, and sustaining the healthcare system for future generations,” the groups write.

Amnesty Pusher Mexican President Declares America “The Other Mexico” - He needs to visit the Alamo


Forget so-called “Mexifornia.” How about the United States of Mexico?

On Monday, Mexico President Enrique Peña Nieto called on other states to “evolve” like California so the United States can be more like his home country.

Appearing with Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and California Governor Jerry Brown in Los Angeles, Peña Nieto called for amnesty legislation and more open borders while blasting governors who have taken a tough stance on illegal immigration.


“This is the other Mexico,” Peña Nieto reportedly “said of the United States, which is property to an estimated 11 million Mexican immigrants,” according to the Los Angeles Times.


Wild Thing's comment.........

Corrupt Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto Has the Nerve to come to our country whie our Marine is in his prison!!!!



Protesters, lawmakers criticize Mexico’s handling of Marine case

Stars and Stripes

Demonstrators, including a Republican lawmaker, gathered outside the historic Leland Stanford Mansion in Sacramento on Tuesday to protest the jailing of a U.S. Marine in Mexico.

Gov. Jerry Brown is hosting a luncheon for Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto at the mansion, part of Pena’s two-day visit to California.

“I refuse to eat with Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi’s captors,” said Republican Assemblyman Tim Donnelly, who helped organize the protest. “We want him to give us our Marine back.”

The Marine reservist, Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi, illegally entered Mexico in March with three firearms and is awaiting trial. Tahmooressi says he crossed the border by accident, and his case has become a cause celebre for some conservatives in the United States.

Mexican officials say the judicial system must run its course, and Brown did not publicly address the issue when he was in Mexico City on a four-day trade mission last month.

Obama Pushes for UN “Climate” Rules Without Congress


Obama Pushes for UN “Climate” Rules Without Congress,,,The agreement would skirt the US Senate.


The Obama administration is working to forge a sweeping international climate change agreement to compel nations to cut their planet-warming fossil fuel emissions, but without ratification from Congress.

In preparation for this agreement, to be signed at a United Nations summit meeting in 2015 in Paris, the negotiators are meeting with diplomats from other countries to broker a deal to commit some of the world’s largest economies to enact laws to reduce their carbon pollution. But under the Constitution, a president may enter into a legally binding treaty only if it is approved by a two-thirds majority of the Senate.

To sidestep that requirement, President Obama’s climate negotiators are devising what they call a “politically binding” deal that would “name and shame” countries into cutting their emissions. The deal is likely to face strong objections from Republicans on Capitol Hill and from poor countries around the world, but negotiators say it may be the only realistic path.

“If you want a deal that includes all the major emitters, including the U.S., you cannot realistically pursue a legally binding treaty at this time,” said Paul Bledsoe, a top climate change official in the Clinton administration who works closely with the Obama White House on international climate change policy.

Lawmakers in both parties on Capitol Hill say there is no chance that the currently gridlocked Senate will ratify a climate change treaty in the near future, especially in a political environment where many Republican lawmakers remain skeptical of the established science of human-caused global warming.

Good Grief!! Dem Rep. Elijah Cummings Asks Obama To Appoint A Police Czar To “Prevent More Fergusons”


Dem Rep. Elijah Cummings Asks Obama To Appoint A Police Czar To “Prevent More Fergusons”


WASHINGTON – Rep. Elijah Cummings, along with other members of the Congressional Black Caucus, sent a letter Monday to President Barack Obama, urging the administration to pursue changes to local law enforcement structure to “prevent more Fergusons,” including a federal czar to oversee local law enforcement.

“The administration must quickly establish a national commission to review existing police policies and practices,” the letter reads. “And identify the best policies and practices that can prevent more Fergusons and vastly improve policing in communities across the nation.”

In addition to the commission, the letter calls for the appointment of a federal czar within the Justice Department to monitor and oversee local police departments that receive federal funding.

Besides Cummings, a Maryland Democrat, Democratic Reps. Marcia Fudge of Ohio, Steven Horsford of Nevada, John Lewis of Georgia, Gwen Moore of Wisconsin and Barbara Lee of Texas signed the letter, as well as AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka, hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons and actress Cynthia Nixon.

Obama's Federal Government Spending $1 Million Creating Database To Track “Hate Speech” On Twitter



Federal Government Spending $1 Million Creating Database To Track “Hate Speech” On Twitter

Washington Free Beacon

The federal government is spending nearly $1 million to create an online database that will track “misinformation” and hate speech on Twitter.

The National Science Foundation is financing the creation of a web service that will monitor “suspicious memes” and what it considers “false and misleading ideas,” with a major focus on political activity online.

The “Truthy” database, created by researchers at Indiana University, is designed to “detect political smears, astroturfing, misinformation, and other social pollution.”

The university has received $919,917 so far for the project.

“The project stands to benefit both the research community and the public significantly,” the grant states. “Our data will be made available via [application programming interfaces] APIs and include information on meme propagation networks, statistical data, and relevant user and content features.”

Obama Orders Review Of Arming State And Local-Enforcement Agencies With Military-Grade Weapons



Obama Orders Review Of Arming State And Local-Enforcement Agencies With Military-Grade Weapons


FOX News


Obama has directed a review of federal programs and funding that allow state and local law-enforcement agencies to acquire surplus military equipment, a senior administration official said Saturday.

The review will include whether the programs are appropriate, if the agencies are getting enough training and guidance to use the equipment and whether the federal government is sufficiently auditing the use of the equipment.

The president hinted Monday that a review was likely in the aftermath of an unarmed Ferguson, Mo., teen being fatally shot by a police officer, which was followed by local law enforcement using military equipment to try to control the ensuing protests and riots.

“I think it’s probably useful for us to review how the funding has gone, how local law enforcement has used grant dollars, to make sure that what they’re purchasing is stuff that they actually need, because there is a big difference between our military and our local law enforcement and we don’t want those lines blurred,” Obama said. “And I think that there will be some bipartisan interest in reexamining some of those programs.”

The August 9 incident in which 18-year-old Michael Brown was fatally shot by the officer and the local police later using automatic rifles and tank-like vehicles to control crowds was not the first time the issue about local police using military equipment has been raised.

An Associated Press investigation last year found that a large share of the $4.2 billion in surplus military gear distributed through the 24-year-old program went to police and sheriff’s departments in rural areas with few officers and little crime.

On Tuesday, Rear Adm. John Kirby, the Defense Department’s chief spokesman, said the program has not been allowed to “run amok.”

The program was created by Congress in 1990 to allow local police to apply for the excess equipment. However, the transfers reportedly have increased as the United States winds down its wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The Defense Logistics Agency took over the program in 1997.

“We don’t push equipment on anybody,” Kirby continued. “This is excess equipment the taxpayers have paid for and we’re not using anymore. And it is made available to law enforcement agencies, if they want it and if they qualify for it. … Just because they ask for a helicopter doesn’t mean that they get a helicopter.”

Rep. Hank Johnson, D-Ga., is among the members of Congress who plan to address the issue following August recess.

Johnson, a member of the House Armed Services Committee, wants to introduce legislation to curb what he describes as an increasing militarization of police agencies across the country.

“Militarizing America’s Main Streets won’t make us any safer, just more fearful and more reticent,” he said Thursday.

The president’s review will be led by White House staff including the Domestic Policy Council, the National Security Council, the Office of Management and Budget and relevant U.S. agencies — including the departments of Defense, Homeland Security, Justice and Treasury, in coordination with Congress, the administration official also said Saturday.

White House Officials Will Attend Michael Brown Funeral, But Couldn't Find Time To Attend Funeral of General Killed in Afghanistan Earlier This Month



White House Officials Will Attend Michael Brown Funeral, But Couldn't Find Time To Attend Funeral of General Killed in Afghanistan Earlier This Month


Three White House officials will attend Michael Brown’s funeral Monday on behalf of the Obama administration, an White House official told NBC News.

Assistant to the President and White House Cabinet Secretary Broderick Johnson, Deputy Director of the White House Office of Public Engagement Marlon Marshall and Heather Foster, an advisor to the public engagement office will be at the ceremony for the unarmed teenager who was shot dead by a Ferguson, Missouri, police officer on Aug. 9, sparking days of unrest in the St. Louis suburb.

Brown’s funeral will be at 10 a.m. local time at Friendly Temple Missionary Church in St. Louis.


No one from the White House showed up for the funeral of Major General Harold Greene:

The highest ranking officer to be killed in combat since Vietnam had his funeral on Thursday. The President, Vice President and Secretary of Defense chose not to attend. To make matter’s worse the president was golfing at the time of the funeral.

Many Americans were disappointed in the lack of White House presence at this week’s funeral for the highest-ranking officer killed in combat since Vietnam.

Major General Harold Greene, the 2-star general killed in Afghanistan August 5, was laid to rest Thursday at Arlington National Cemetery, according to myfoxdc.com.

Obama's WH Now Says ISIS No Longer a JV Team, But They Were 8 Months Ago When Obama Called Them That


ISIS No Longer a JV Team, But They Were 8 Months Ago When Obama Called Them That


A senior White House official said the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria has gained more power and poses a greater threat now than it did when President Obama referred to the group as a “JV” team in an interview eight months ago.

“Clearly, [ISIS], which has a long history and has an origin dating back to al Qaeda in Iraq, has gained capacity as they advanced across Iraq and gained heavy weaponry,” Ben Rhodes, Obama’s deputy national security adviser, told reporters Friday.

“They pose a greater threat today than they did six months ago. … We’re going to do what’s necessary to deal with this counter-terrorism challenge,” he added.


Back in January, Obama told the New Yorker’s David Remnick that ISIS, then still considered part of al Qaeda and having joined forces with them while fighting in Syria, was akin to a junior varsity basketball team.

“The analogy we use around here sometimes and is accurate is if a JV team puts on Laker uniforms, that doesn’t make them Kobe Bryant,” Obama said at the time.

China Broadcasts Endless Loop Of Foley Beheading On Huge Screen In Downtown Beijing


Thursday evening in Beijing’s downtown area – in the heart of Dongzhimen, and above one of the capital’s busiest transport hubs – a giant cinema-sized TV screen beams out looped images of racially charged riots in Ferguson, Missouri and Islamic extremists preparing to execute US journalist James Foley.

The footage of Foley comes in spite of concerted efforts throughout western media, and especially on Twitter, to censor images of the execution. Many media outlets have been moved to depict the courageous journalist as he was in life, not death: a dedicated and respected war reporter.

The Government Accountability Office Says Obama's Pentagon BROKE THE LAW With Bergdahl Prisoner Swap


Nonpartisan Government Watchdog- Pentagon BROKE THE LAW With Bergdahl Prisoner Swap

FOX News

The Pentagon broke the law when it swapped Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, a prisoner in Afghanistan for five years, for five Taliban leaders, congressional investigators said Thursday.


WASHINGTON -(MYFOX/AP) The nonpartisan Government Accountability Office said the Defense Department failed to notify the relevant congressional committees at least 30 days in advance of the exchange — a clear violation of the law — and used $988,400 of a wartime account to make the transfer. The GAO also said the Pentagon's use of funds that hadn't been expressly appropriated violated the Anti-deficiency Act.

"In our view, the meaning of the (law) is clear and unambiguous," the GAO wrote to nine Republican senators, including Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and various committees. "Section 8111 prohibits the use of 'funds appropriated or otherwise made available' in the Department of Defense Appropriations Act, 2014, to transfer any individual detained at Guantanamo Bay to the custody or control of a foreign entity' except in accordance" with the law.


The GAO said the relevant committees received phone calls from May 31 — the day of the transfer — to June 1, with written notification coming on June 2.

Five senior Taliban were released from detention at the U.S. prison at Guantanamo in exchange for Bergdahl, who had disappeared from his post in Paktika province in eastern Afghanistan on June 30, 2009. The five Taliban are to remain in Qatar for a year.

Obama and Holder Treating Foley Beheading As A Criminal Matter, Holder Launches Criminal Investigation


Obama Admin Treating Foley Beheading As A Criminal Matter, Holder Launches Criminal Investigation


FOX News

Attorney General Eric Holder said Thursday that his Justice Department is opening a criminal investigation into the brutal execution by Islamic State militants of American journalist James Foley, in the latest move by the administration to use the criminal justice system to pursue terrorists.

The announcement comes as the Obama administration steps up its airstrike campaign against the same militant organization — and mulls additional American boots on the ground in Iraq.

Holder, during remarks in Washington, confirmed the “open criminal investigation” into Foley’s beheading, which was recorded and posted online this week.

“Those who would perpetrate such acts need to understand something — this Justice Department, this Department of Defense, this nation, we have long memories and our reach is very wide,” Holder said. “We will not forget what happened, and people will be held accountable, one way or the other.”

The remarks seemed to leave open the possibility of military action to seek justice in Foley’s killing. The pursuit of a criminal probe, though, immediately raises questions about how investigators will be able to operate.

“This is more nonsense,” Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif., an Iraq war veteran, said in a statement to FoxNews.com. “What’s most aggravating is that either in Foley’s situation, or the other Americans in captivity, the Defense Department is being forced to take a backseat to the FBI and DOJ.”

Retired Intel Officer:: U.S. Special Forces Rescue Attempt Of James Foley Failed Because Obama Kept “Dragging His Feet”

Thursday morning, Shaffer appeared on WMAL radio in Washington, D.C., to discuss the ISIS execution of American journalist James Foley earlier this week. He told me and co-host Brian Wilson that the recently revealed rescue attempt led by Special Forces earlier this summer failed because President Obama was slow to give the go-ahead:

I’m hearing from my friends in the Pentagon, they are giving him every single option way ahead of time. And let me give you a little secret here: The reason that raid into Syria failed to get Foley and those guys was because the president drug his feet. He waited too long, the intel got stale, and by the time we actually gave the “go” word it failed because we just didn’t react quick enough.
