Obama Faulted in Terror Fight, New Poll Finds

Lucianne.com - 12 min 51 sec ago
New York Times, by Julie Hirschfeld Davis & Dalia Sussman Posted By: JoniTx- Thu, 18 02 2014 06:02:41 GMT For the first time in his presidency, more Americans disapprove of President Obama’s handling of terrorism than approve of it, as discontent about his management of foreign affairs and the fight against Sunni militants in Iraq and Syria weighs on an anxious and conflicted public, according to the latest New York Times/CBS News Poll. As Mr. Obama broadens the military offensive against Islamic extremists, the survey finds broad support for United States airstrikes in Iraq and Syria, but it also demonstrates how torn Americans are about wading back into battle in the Middle East. A majority is opposed to committing

The Obama administration´s nonstop incoherence on ISIS

Lucianne.com - 12 min 51 sec ago
The Week, by Edward Morrissey Posted By: NorthernDog- Thu, 18 43 2014 05:43:53 GMT One has to wonder just how often members of President Barack Obama´s national security team talk with each other. The federal government is famously gigantic, but the president´s Cabinet is not, particularly if you narrow it to the inner circle that crafts military and national security strategy. One would assume that it wouldn´t be all that difficult to prepare a coherent approach to an international crisis, particularly as Cabinet members testify before Congress amidst deep skepticism of the White House´s strategy to destroy the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS, or in the administration´s preferred acronym, ISIL). And yet,

Child'porn conviction is tossed: Navy surveillance is blamed

Seattle Times, by Mike Carter Posted By: Maggie2u- Thu, 18 40 2014 05:40:43 GMT Navy criminal investigators repeatedly and routinely peeked into the computers of private citizens in Washington state and elsewhere, a violation of the law so “massive” and egregious that an appeals court says it has no choice but to throw out the evidence against an Algona man sentenced to 18 years in prison for distribution of child pornography. The three'judge panel of the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, in a decision handed down last week, said the 2012 prosecution of Michael Allan Dreyer by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Seattle demonstrated Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) agents “routinely carry out broad

New IS Video Warns US Over Iraq Deployment

Lucianne.com - 12 min 51 sec ago
Associated Press, by Staff Posted By: NorthernDog- Thu, 18 35 2014 05:35:17 GMT BEIRUT ' The militant Islamic State group released a video warning the United States that its fighters are waiting for it in Iraq if President Barack Obama sends troops there, as his top general said may happen if the current strategy of airstrikes fails. The slick 52'second video entitled "Flames of War" shows militants blowing up tanks and images of wounded U.S. soldiers. It then shows a clip of Obama saying that combat troops will not be returning to Iraq, ending with a text overlay that reads "fighting has just begun." The video´s timing, released late Tuesday, suggested it was

If you could take any aspect from the family you grew up in and bring it into the family you have created, what would it be? A certain holiday tradition?

Why do Americans Hate America?

After some hand-wringing over British citizens who have chosen to fight with ISIS, Prime Minister David Cameron said he thinks one reason for the defection is that too many of the defectors have forgotten what it means to be British. As a means of fighting the radicalization of young people, he wants all of Britains schools to again teach British values." 2014-09-18T00:01:00-04:00 2014-09-18T05:05:59Z Cal Thomas

Holder expects criminal charges against individuals on Wall Street

Lucianne.com - 12 min 51 sec ago
Associated Press, by Staff Posted By: Scottyboy- Thu, 18 14 2014 04:14:14 GMT WASHINGTON — The Justice Department expects to bring criminal charges in the coming months in investigations involving financial institutions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Wednesday as he called for better incentives for Wall Street whistleblowers who report crime. Holder did not describe the investigations in a speech at New York University’s law school except to say that they’re “focused on the conduct of individuals” and involve wrongdoing that has undermined the financial markets. He used the address to urge Congress to raise a cap on the amount of money that a whistleblower can receive for reporting misconduct. Such cooperation is essential since

Breitbart Big Government, by Michael Patrick Leahy Posted By: Dreadnought- Thu, 18 01 2014 04:01:51 GMT Less than 24 hours after Breitbart News first reported that Warren Buffett was scheduled to participate via conference call at Wednesday night´s California fundraiser for Kentucky Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes, the Grimes campaign confirmed the billionaire investor has dropped out of the event. Campaign spokesperson Charly Norton told a reporter for a blog on Kentucky´s U.S. Senate race on Wednesday "Warren Buffett is not attending or participating in any event with Alison."

Candidates from both parties packing heat in campaign ads

Washington Times, by Valerie Richardson Posted By: Dreadnought- Thu, 18 57 2014 03:57:39 GMT Guns are becoming the prop of choice in campaign ads around the country this midterm year. Take it as another sign that the Obama administration’s gun control push is running aground: Firearms have become this year’s go'to accessory for candidates of both parties seeking to advertise their toughness and willingness to fight. Republicans, and even some Democrats, in a dozen states are showing off their shooting skills in videos and television ads or posing with firearms in mailers, underscoring the backlash against federal and state proposals to restrict access to guns and ammunition.

Washington Times, by Jim McElhatton Posted By: Dreadnought- Thu, 18 55 2014 03:55:02 GMT Weeks before the State Department assured Americans that things were operating “normally” at its consulate in the Kurdish capital of Erbil in August, concerned procurement officials were quietly saying the advance of militants of the Islamic State, also known as ISIL or ISIS, meant the government needed to shell out tens of millions of dollars to counter a “rapidly deteriorating” security situation. On a no'bid basis, the State Department nearly doubled the size of a task order to defense contractor Triple Canopy, which had been hired to train Iraqi security forces but was asked to now perform diplomatic security and
