A new memorial to the Altalena ship has been built in Tel Aviv:
A new memorial monument for the victims of the 1948 Altalena cargo ship incident was set to be unveiled at the Nahalat Yitzhak cemetery in Tel Aviv Thursday.

Sixteen members of the Irgun were killed in the Altalena Affair, in which the paramilitary group clashed with the newly created Israel Defense Forces.

[...] The new monument will include a metal-plated cement model of the Altalena ship, in which part of it appears to be sinking into the water. On the side of the boat appears a quote from then-Irgun leader Menachem Begin, who was aboard the ship at the time: "We can never have a civil war."
It's about time this was thought of. The Altalena has some history that needs to be known.

Here's an extra article about it.

According to a new video by James O'Keefe, Hillary Clinton approved a plan by activist Robert Creamer to disrupt Trump rallies:
James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas has released video evidence that left-wing organizer and high-level Democratic Party operative Robert Creamer is, in fact, linked directly to Hillary Clinton, who personally approved at least one of his disruptive tactics.

Last week, O’Keefe produced video showing Creamer, the co-founder of the Democracy Partners consulting group, and his colleague, Scott Foval, discussing their past and present efforts to incite violence at Donald Trump rallies and other events.
Read and view the rest. This is truly disgusting and explains perfectly what's gone wrong with politics today.

Breitbart filmed another interview with Leslie Milwee where she urges any other victims of Bill Clinton's sex abuse to step forward and speak out. When asked if she's afraid now that she spoke out, she replied:
“I’m afraid because I know the moral compass and the lack of integrity that I feel the Clintons have. I think there’s been no accountability by the media for many of the illegal things that they have done. No one seems to hold them accountable for their behavior. And am I afraid they will try to do something to me? Of course I am. But I’m also willing at this point. This needs to be said…

“And Hillary is just as culpable as he is in the fact that she helped him cover this up for all those years and harass the women that were raped victims and victims of sexual harassment. So, am I afraid? A little bit. But I am more afraid not to tell the truth and not to bring this to light.”
She did the right thing to step forward and speak out, and should be congratulated for it. It's high time this news was discussed.


As the following news informs, Hillary and Bill's foundation took tons from Islamic countries that routinely desecrate human rights:
In her response to the Islamic terror attack in Orlando, Hillary Clinton called on the governments of Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Kuwait to stop allowing their citizens to fund terrorists and to “stop supporting radical schools and mosques.” However, she failed to mention that the Clinton Foundation has spent years accepting millions in donations from countries that throw homosexuals in prison, fine them, sentence them to hard labor, and even execute them for the “crime” of being gay.

For years, Hillary Clinton’s own global foundation welcomed big-dollar donations from countries with some of the worst LGBT-rights records in the world. And it’s worth noting that the Clintons have routinely failed to disclose all the information concerning donations to their foundation.
Read the rest, and see also Sean Hannity's list (via Truthfeed). Donald Trump's said that Hillary should give the money back, but what chance of that is there? Probably very little.

This proves that Hillary's almost as much a taqqiya specialist as some Islamofascists themselves.

Leslie Milwee, a former TV reporter in Arkansas, has gone public to tell how she too was a victim of disgraceful former POTUS Bill Clinton. Here's an excerpt of her description of the first time he assaulted her:
“…he followed me into an editing room. The first time I remember. That it was very small. There was a chair. I was sitting in a chair. He came up behind me and started rubbing my shoulders and running his hands down toward my breasts. And I was just stunned. I froze. I asked him to stop. He laughed.

“That happened on three occasions. And each time it escalated where the aggressive nature of his touch and what he was doing behind me escalated.”
Read and watch it all. Clinton's a prime example of a politician who thought being that high up meant never having to say he's sorry, and sadly, he still thinks that way today, judging by his failure to publicly apologize to his other victims.


Wikileaks provided more information about the Clinton campaign's connections with far-left billionaire Soros:
Hours before Hillary Clinton dined with George Soros, members of Clinton’s inner circle debated how to handle an anticipated request from the notorious billionaire. Longtime Hillary handler Huma Abedin forwarded an invitation for Hillary to attend a December 2014 fundraiser in Soros’ New York home for the Soros-backed group America Votes to Robby Mook and John Podesta.

The email exchange from October 2014 is included in the Wikileaks release (Podesta Email 15201) and shows the campaign preparing for the dinner between Hillary and Soros. The thread highlights the lengths the campaign was willing to go “to make Soros happy.”
And the way they'd make him happy is by destroying all that's great about this world, including Israel. Soros is like the Henry Ford of modern times, and a disgrace. That he's bankrolling the Clinton campaign is telling.

The latest repellent insanity from Scandanavia includes validation of jihad symbols:
Swedish prosecutors have effectively legalised the display and use of the Islamic State (ISIS) battle flag by refusing to prosecute a Muslim male who used an image of it as his Facebook profile.

An unidentified 23-year-old was the subject of a complaint to police after he set an image of the ISIS flag as his profile picture. Swedish police passed the case onto the prosecutor who after deliberation decided to not pursue it.

Whether the Islamic State flag is a symbol of hatred akin to the German National Socialist Swastika has never been tried in court — and may now never be after the decision by prosecutor Gisela Sjövall.
Who announced the following stupefier:
“You could say that merely waving a flag of IS in the current situation can not be considered hate speech. It is not an expression of disrespect towards any [particular] ethnic group."
Stunningly ignorant indeed. The flag symbolizes hostility towards anybody considered an infidel in Islamic terms.


Inverse reports that Marvel and ABC, both owned by Disney today, are collaborating on a book about the Syrian war:
Marvel and ABC have teamed up to bring the story of one Syrian woman’s struggles to life.

Madaya Mom is a visual comic based on a series of text messages between ABC News and an unnamed Syrian woman earlier this year. The woman lives in Madaya, a town that is trapped between government forces, rebels and ISIL. The Syrian government has systematically starved residents to try and get them to surrender their land. There’s no food, no electricity and, for many residents (including Madaya Mom), waning hope.
And probably no honesty about what drives any of the jihadism in Syria either. Sure, the "government" of Syria is a very evil lot, but so too are ISIL, who employ a lot of the same torture tactics as the government itself. Doesn't the Islamic State's own evil matter? The horrors they've committed have taken the lives of thousands, yet from the info Marvel and ABC have given, it sounds awfully like they're only interested in one of the sides, not both. Don't be surprised if this turns out to be as dishonest and badly informed as the other products they're putting out now that whitewash serious subjects.

Wikileaks has released more of the Clinton emails, showing what she thinks of conservatives, attacking them as "un-american". Yet she probably doesn't think any of her past conduct could be construed as such.

Here's another report on Fox about the latest trove.

Update: and while we're on the subject, Fox also says there's FBI agents who're angry at the senior leaders for letting Clinton off the hook for her terrible conduct (Hat tip: Breitbart):
The decision to let Hillary Clinton off the hook for mishandling classified information has roiled the FBI and Department of Justice, with one person closely involved in the year-long probe telling FoxNews.com that career agents and attorneys on the case unanimously believed the Democratic presidential nominee should have been charged.

The source, who spoke to FoxNews.com on the condition of anonymity, said FBI Director James Comey’s dramatic July 5 announcement that he would not recommend to the Attorney General’s office that the former secretary of state be charged left members of the investigative team dismayed and disgusted. More than 100 FBI agents and analysts worked around the clock with six attorneys from the DOJ’s National Security Division, Counter Espionage Section, to investigate the case.

“No trial level attorney agreed, no agent working the case agreed, with the decision not to prosecute — it was a top-down decision,” said the source, whose identity and role in the case has been verified by FoxNews.com.

A high-ranking FBI official told Fox News that while it might not have been a unanimous decision, “It was unanimous that we all wanted her [Clinton’s] security clearance yanked.”

“It is safe to say the vast majority felt she should be prosecuted,” the senior FBI official told Fox News. “We were floored while listening to the FBI briefing because Comey laid it all out, and then said ‘but we are doing nothing,’ which made no sense to us.”
The New York Post says there's officials who're "ready to revolt" because of the cowardly approach taken to the issue, and Congress is wondering if Comey mislead them. Indeed, the way the top brass acted is a major embarrassment and proves they're in serious need of repairs.

A former employee of NBC says they should air a taping of an older interview they filmed with one of Bill Clinton's victims:
A former NBC News journalist is calling on the network to release raw footage of a 1999 interview with Bill Clinton’s rape accuser, Juanita Broaddrick.

In a chat on the website Sidewire on Thursday, Yahoo! News reporter Michael Isikoff said that the NBC footage of Broaddrick’s “Dateline” interview would show that she told interviewer Lisa Myers that Hillary Clinton attempted to intimidate her weeks after the alleged rape, which Broaddrick says occurred at a Little Rock hotel in 1978.

“Broaddrick told her story to NBC and the WashPost in 99. Both organizations closely vetted her story and chose to run it,” wrote Isikoff.

“Also, NBC has the full tape of the original Lisa Meyers [sic] interview,” he added.

Isikoff is the reporter who is credited with landing the scoop that Bill Clinton was having an affair with Monica Lewinsky. The story was spiked at the last minute by his editors at Newsweek.

When Broaddrick resurfaced in January after years of silence, she claimed that Hillary Clinton tried to “silence” her in a brief encounter weeks after the alleged rape. The former nursing home executive said that she was at a political function when Hillary Clinton showed up, approached Broaddrick and shook her hand while thanking her for “everything you do for Bill.”

Broaddrick said that when she tried to pull away, Clinton grasped her hand and repeated the line. Broaddrick interpreted it as a veiled threat.

Isikoff, who worked at NBC from 2010 to 2014, noted that Broaddrick’s critics have questioned the claim that the former first lady issued the threat because Broaddrick did not mention it in the “Dateline” interview.

“Folks have made much of the fact that her claim about the conversation she had with Hillary wasn’t in the interview that run. Broaddrick said it got cut out; Lisa Myers has since agreed Broaddrick said this then — and NBC chose to cut it out,” wrote Isikoff.
I see. So even that early, they chose to cover for Hillary. The full recording most definitely should be released, but they probably won't ever fulfill the request.

Update: while we're on the subject, here's a Fox interview with Kathy Shelton, the woman who was raped in Arkansas by 2 men when she was 12 years old, and Clinton defended her attackers in court without a care how evil they were:

After watching this, I'm even more horrified than ever that Clinton would do such a terrible disfavor to a girl who'd been through such a horrific experience.

Alex Jones's Info Wars has an article about Danney Lee Williams, an African-American who says he's a biological son of Bill Clinton:
My name is Danney Lee Williams. I have many compelling reasons to believe that I am the biological son of former President William Jefferson Clinton — also known as Bill Clinton.

I am simply seeking the truth, and thus I am respectfully requesting that former President Clinton supply a court verified sample of his DNA to be compared with mine to determine paternity.

Before passing judgment, I ask the citizens and media of this great nation to honestly review the evidence and my reasoning. I also would like to shed light on how the widely reported DNA test in 1999 – which allegedly disproves that he and I are not father and son — was in fact fundamentally flawed in how it was executed and reported thereafter.

In 1999, various news organizations including the Washington Post and Time reported that I was not Bill Clinton’s son based on a widely reported DNA test that was based on the DNA report included in independent counsel Kenneth Starr’s impeachment report and a DNA sample that was taken from me. This is false. In fact, the test proved to be inconclusive because the Starr report did not contain the necessary data to reach such a conclusion.

The Starr report only included the results of a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) that the FBI used to determine whether Clinton’s DNA matched Ms. Lewinsky’s dress. In fact this is not enough data to determine if Bill Clinton is my father or not. FBI lab’s test refraction fragmented length polymorphism (RFLP) would also be required to make this determination. The PCR test alone would not be enough to legally prove or disprove paternity.

The truth is that in 1985, during the time I was conceived, my mother was a single parent raising two boys on her own. She would sometimes sell herself to men to make ends meet for her family. During this dark period in her life, Governor Clinton was the only Caucasian man she was having sexual relations with at the time I was conceived. In 1997, my mother passed a lie detector test conducted by investigative reporters to corroborate her claimed that Bill Clinton was her only white suitor at the time she conceived her bi-racial son.

I have seen also the physical resemblance between myself and President Clinton — the facial features, nose, chin line — that strongly suggest a biological connection, which has been pointed out by thousands of people across the nation.

For 30 years, my mother has stood firm on the claim that Bill Clinton is my father, and never once has she recanted her story… nor has my Aunt Lucille, who bared witness to my mother’s account.
Read it all. So Bill may have another child, and this is certainly testimony to his infidelity that Hillary apparently saw nothing wrong with.

While we're on the subject, here's another Breitbart video interview with Juanita Broaddrick, who was violated by Bill in 1978. It's one thing if he committed adultery, but committing rape is crossing a red line, and he didn't deserve to be president for that. Let's hope the Trump campaign can show that the Clintons are the ones who're really creeps here.

It turns out that the jihadist who attacked and murdered 2 people near Ammunition Hill received leniency from a judge who was a bad lot, and is now facing criticism:
As Yom Kippur approaches, Jews around the world are atoning for their sins, but MK Yehudah Glick (Likud) announced on Monday that there was one person he would not forgive: Judge Hagit Mak-Kalmanovith, who postponed the prison sentence of the terrorist who ended up killing two Israelis in Jerusalem on Sunday.

On May 30, the terrorist’s attorney reached a plea deal by which he would admit to assaulting a police officer and receive a reduced sentence of four months.

The lawyer asked that the sentence be postponed until October, and Mak-Kalmanovith agreed. On Sunday, having not yet begun his sentence, the terrorist went on a shooting spree.

“You listened to the pleading of the terrorist, who was arrested many times for violence.

You were cruel to the merciful and had mercy on the cruel,”
Glick wrote about Mak-Kalmanovith.

“As a result of your postponing the terrorist’s sentence for four months, he murdered two innocent Jews yesterday and wounded many others,” Glick went on.

“On the eve of Yom Kippur, before your Lord, will you be able to say your hands are clean?” The terrorist’s name is still being withheld under a gag order.

Glick encountered Mak-Kalmanovith in court on October 22, 2014, when he was the leading activist for Jewish prayer rights on the Temple Mount. He wrote in his Facebook post that the judge did not believe him when he said he felt his life was being threatened, and that he regularly faced violence from Arabs on the Temple Mount.

“You preferred the terrorists over me and decided to ban me from the Temple Mount, because you said that I was dangerous. You accepted the twisted and false claim.... You preferred to believe the violent people, the terrorists, the villains and the liars. I felt that you were assassinating me,” he wrote.

A week later, Muataz Hijazi of east Jerusalem shot Glick several times, critically wounding him.
This judge is clearly one who is not fit for her job, doesn't deserve it, and owes many an apology for her surely predetermined positions. In a way, this is similar to how the case of the ISIS terrorist in France who murdered a Catholic priest was handled. Obviously, cowardly law officials who're soft on violent criminals while hard on innocents must face some kind of disciplinary action and impeachment, because that's exactly what's enabling violent offenders to run around loose.

Donald Trump’s Comments About Women Spark Hypocritical Leftist Uproar

Cross-posted from American Power.


The left's hypocrisy is to be expected. I mean, it's just par for the course.

Following-up from last night, "Donald Trump Apologizes (VIDEO)."

At WSJ, "Donald Trump's Lewd Comments About Women Spark Uproar":
Donald Trump’s Republican presidential campaign was in damage control late Friday after a decade-old recording emerged in which he speaks in crude sexual terms about women.

Mr. Trump quickly apologized for the comments, which included talk about grabbing and kissing women, saying they were “foolish.” But the recording drew blunt rebukes from both the Republican Party’s top elected official and the head of the GOP and didn’t sit well with some of Mr. Trump’s evangelical supporters.

“I pledge to be a better man tomorrow and will never, ever let you down,” Mr. Trump said in a video statement posted on his Facebook page after midnight EDT on Saturday.

Mr. Trump said he regretted saying the things captured in the recording. “I was wrong and I apologize,” he said.

He then switched his focus to former President Bill Clinton, the husband of his rival, Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, who he said “has actually abused women.”

“We will discuss this more in the coming days,” he said.

House Speaker Paul Ryan (R., Wis.) said he was “sickened” by the recording and uninvited Mr. Trump to a campaign event in his state scheduled for Saturday. Mr. Trump said in a statement that he would send his running mate, Mike Pence, in his place, and instead spend the day in debate preparations.

In the 2005 recording, Mr. Trump said: “You know I’m automatically attracted to beautiful women—I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait.…

“And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything.…Grab them by the pussy. You can do anything,” Mr. Trump added.

Mr. Trump also referred to a married woman whom he said he tried to seduce: “I moved on her and I failed. I’ll admit it. I did try and f—her.…”

“I moved on her like a bitch, but I couldn’t get there. And she was married,” Mr. Trump said in the recording. “Then, all of a sudden, I see her, she’s now got the big phony tits and everything. She’s totally changed her look.”

“No woman should ever be described in these terms or talked about in this manner. Ever,” said Reince Priebus, chairman of the Republican National Committee, in a written statement.

Before the evening was out, Mr. Trump had drawn the opprobrium of other Republicans, including former GOP presidential rivals Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz, several GOP senators running for re-election, and former GOP presidential nominees John McCain and Mitt Romney.

Still, few Republicans pulled support from Mr. Trump. Those who did were a trio of Utah politicians: Gov. Gary Herbert and U.S. Rep. Jason Chaffetz withdrew their endorsements while former Gov. John Huntsman called on the nominee to quit the race.

Two other Republican congressmen who hadn’t supported Trump—Sen. Mark Kirk of Illinois and Rep. Mike Coffman of Colorado—called on Mr. Trump to quit the race. So did Rob Engstrom, the political director for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. “There is no GOP nominee for president in 2016,” Mr. Engstrom posted on Twitter. “Fundamentally offensive and unqualified.”

Ralph Reed, the founder and chairman of the Faith and Freedom Coalition, dismissed the recording as an ancillary issue for religious voters in the election.

“People of faith are voting on issues like who will protect unborn life, defend religious freedom, defund Planned Parenthood and oppose the Iran nuclear deal,” Mr. Reed said Friday. “A 10-year-old audio of a private conversation with a television talk-show host ranks very low on their hierarchy of concerns.”
Ralph Reed hits the nail on the head, but there's no denying this episode could cause real damage to Trump's campaign. The Democrats smell blood in the water. Last week it was taxes. This week it's lewd comments. It's an extremely well-coordinated campaign to distract the voters from Hillary Clinton's manifest disqualifications for the office. It's actually depressing that it's come to this, but then it's American politics in the culture of reality television, social media, and coarsening progressive collectivism.

An Australian imam got attacked by an Egyptian lawyer on television because he suggested women not be forced to wear veils:
An Australian imam was attacked and beaten with a shoe live on Egyptian television after he suggested Islamic women should not be forced to wear a veil in public.

Sydney-based Mostafa Rashid was debating the issue of female dress codes under Islam when his opponent, Egyptian lawyer Nabih al-Wahsh, took off his shoe and chased him around the studio, all the while beating him around the head with his footwear.
Many Muslims consider hitting with shoes a big insult, and the crackpot who did that clearly thought so too. A pure disgrace, and for that he should be made to go barefoot.

The Jewish Press published a guide for this year to what Rosh Hashana is all about, for learning the history and customs practiced. And, the International Business Times tells what meals are eaten to celebrate the holiday.


The Israeli police have uncovered an ISIS gang operating in Jerusalem:
Israel's Shin Bet domestic security service and Jerusalem Police uncovered a terrorist cell run by the Islamic State group in East Jerusalem that planned to carry out attacks across Israel, the Shin Bet cleared for publication Sunday.

Six residents from the Shoafat refugee camp and the neighborhood of Anata are accused of establishing an IS terror cell, attempting to reach Egypt or Syria to join IS fighters, and of planning to carry out terror attacks in Israel on behalf of the group. with attempting to join the Islamic State.

Indictments were filed against four members of the squad Sunday morning at the Jerusalem District Court, while indictments were filed in the Magistrate's Court against two other squad members. The group members face charges of attempting to aid an enemy during war, membership in an illegal organization, membership in a terror organization, and aiding a terror group.

According to the investigation, the members of the cell planned several serious attacks, including mass attacks around the country and kidnappings.

The indictment said the network had been established in 2015 by 29-year-old Ahmad Shweiky, Ha'aretz reports. He is said to have set up a weekly study group that met to study IS ideology.

Members of the group allegedly cut their hair, grew out their beards, and folded the hem of their pants in a fashion customary among Islamic State supporters.

Two of the suspects, Amer Al-Baiyeh and Mohammed Hamid, are said to have travelled to Israel's southern border with Egypt six months ago where they made an unsuccessful attempt to obtain visas to cross into the Sinai peninsula, a hotbed of jihadist activity in Egypt.
I think there's valid grounds for exiling these monsters far outside the boundaries of Israel, to some remote part of the Arabian desert where they're far away from civilization as can be. But for now, they should be locked away underground. Besides, all they want to see is darkness.

Similar to France, Bulgaria's also banning Islamic veils (Hat tip: Jihad Watch):
BULGARIA has banned the burka – and warned those who flout the law will be fined £662 and lose their benefits.

Bulgaria’s parliament banned the wearing of face veils on Friday in a bid to boost security in the wake of Islamist militant attacks in Europe.

The new “burqa ban” law, which had been driven by the nationalist Patriotic Front coalition, comes after France, the Netherlands and Belgium banned the wearing of burqas or niqabs in public.

The ban will not only apply to Bulgarian citizens but also to anyone temporarily in the country.

The new law states that clothing that conceals the face may not be worn in the institutions of Bulgaria’s central and local administrations, schools, cultural institutions, and places of public recreation, sports and communications.

Krasimir Velchev, a senior lawmaker for the ruling GERB, said: “The law is not directed against religious communities and is not repressive.

“We made a very good law for the safety of our children.”
Any religion that wants to be seen as positive wouldn't call for concealing - and denying - one's identity, nor for risking health by covering the body in a way that could lead to osteoporosis.


The NY Observer (via Breitbart) tells of a new startup business called Blockstack that's putting together a new internet frequency. One that can't be censored:
The Blockstack approach should make shutting down the internet or blocking a particular site considerably more challenging. Domain registration is turned over to a blockchain (right now, that’s the original bitcoin blockchain), and no private interest needs to be involved. There’s no single point to tell computers where to look to find a site. There’s lots of places, and the more people use it, the more places there will be. If one path to information is shut down, another can found.
This is an interesting idea, just what we needed if we're worried about ICANN as it stands now. If they're planning alternate businesses for setting up root zone programs, it's just what I was thinking of myself, and this proves I'm not the only one who thought of the possibilities. I congratulate the company for thinking of this, since IMO, nobody should have to rely on just one single business for setting up domains and such. There does need to be competition.

It was discovered 6 days ago that a whole scene on the Nice beach where a Muslim woman was confronted by police for wearing a burkini without permission was all a deliberate setup:
“Selectively edited” Footage of a young Muslim woman wearing a so-called Burkini being threatened on a French beach was a deliberate set-up for the benefit of a Channel Seven Australia television crew, according to revelations in the Australian press.

Newspapers around the world sympathetically reported the plight of 23-year-old Australian Muslim university student Zeynab Alshelh this week after images emerged which purported to show her being harrassed on a French beach.

British titles including the Daily Telegraph, Sun, BBC, Mirror, and others reported Ms. Alshelh had been “chased off” the beach, while she and her family were “met with abuse”.

Yet calls for the young Muslim activist to issue an apology to France for her deliberately provocative stunt are growing after claims that the anger of those on the beach wasn’t directed at the woman’s attire — but at the presence of television cameras, in clear breach of French privacy laws.

The Daily Mail Australia reports the remarks of an eye witness to the confrontation, who said: “The man on the video who said, ‘You turn around and you leave’, was my uncle. He never asked these three people to leave the beach. He spoke to the camera because he was asking the cameraman to leave.

“There were children on the beach, including our own, and we didn’t want them to be filmed”
So it was all just what some could describe as a provocation. For that, both the Muslim activist and the TV channel she worked with owe an apology for a stunt that was obviously intended to undermine France, after all the horrific terrorist attacks they've had to endure. It's absolutely repulsive how they're being abused much like Israel is, all by people who don't have a care in the world about the well being of innocents trying to lead quiet and productive lives. I strongly recommend that Australia's Channel 7 be boycotted for stooping so low.


Obama just recently tried to veto a bill that would allow the families of terrorism victims to sue Saudi Arabia for harboring any and all jihadists who planned the attacks. Fortunately, this time, even the Democrats voted to override his veto and ensure the bill could stand:
The House and Senate voted Wednesday to reject President Obama's veto of legislation allowing lawsuits against foreign sponsors of terrorism — the first successful override of a presidential veto since Obama took office.

The president had vetoed the legislation Friday because he said the bill — known as the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act, or JASTA — would infringe on the president’s ability to conduct foreign policy. It was the 12th veto of his presidency.

But after an intense push by 9/11 survivors and families of victims who want to sue Saudi Arabia based on claims the country played a role in the 2001 terror attacks, even Obama’s Democratic allies on Capitol Hill voted to override his veto.

The House voted 348-77, well above the two-thirds majority needed. The final vote tally in the Senate was 97-1. Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., cast the lone dissenting vote.

"In our polarized politics of today, this is pretty much close to a miraculous occurrence," Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, said. Democrats and Republicans in both chambers agreed, he said, that the bill "gives the victims of the terrorist attack on our own soil an opportunity to seek the justice they deserve."
I'm glad both Republicans and Democrats alike supported this move (with the exception of Reid, who's a disgrace if he couldn't). The 9-11 Families fought very hard for justice, and it's about time they were given the respect they deserve, for fighting for the honor of their beloved relatives.

The override enraged the Saudis, who unsurprisingly have no sympathy for 9-11 Families or why they're seeking compensation. If the Saudis don't want to lead relations with the US anymore, so be it. We shouldn't be relying on oil or anything else coming from such an awful country.

The effort in Congress to stop the ICANN transfer may not have succeeded, but 4 states starting with Texas are now joining the battle for keeping the internet free and safe, and have filed a lawsuit:
Three conservative states are suing the Obama administration in an attempt to block the U.S. government from ceding oversight of some of the internet’s core systems.

The attorneys general of Texas, Oklahoma and Arizona on Thursday asked a federal court in Galveston, Texas, to keep the Commerce Department from relinquishing oversight of ICANN, or the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers.

The internet relies on the “domain name” system. That includes directories helping computers on the network send data. ICANN has overseen the directories since 1998.

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and others opposed the transition, which was approved by Congress in a temporary spending bill keeping the government running. The lawsuit says ceding control of ICANN violates the Property Clause of U.S. Constitution, which restricts giving away government property.
I wish Texas and the others good luck with this suit, and it's good they're concerned, because local security is just as important as national, and they have every right to be concerned on those grounds too.

Joel Pollak and Frank Gaffney both note that it's just three days left till Obama could surrender away the internet to unreliable sources and form a disaster for everybody in electronics. It remains to be seen if Congress will act to prevent the disaster or not. And you can very well say that if the GOP reps won't do it, it'll be to their discredit for enabling something that could easily destroy a lot of hard work to make this a better world.

So what's it going to be with Congress? Are they going to prove themselves or not?
