AN AWFUL IRANIAN DEAL BREWING

It looks like the Obama administration is determined to go through with Iran dealing no matter what the costs:
Netanyahu predicted that many countries in the region would be immediately affected by a bad deal.

“Moderate, responsible countries in the region, primarily Israel but other countries as well, will be the first to be harmed by this agreement,” he said.
And now the Obama administration wants to make everything harder by keeping on with this. It's going to take some serious protesting to prevent one of the most awful political deals from being made.

EVIDENTLY - TO LEFTISTS, CHRISTIAN BAKERS HAVE LESS RIGHT TO CHOOSE WHO CAN BUY THEIR SERVICES OR PRODUCTS THAN LEFTIST MUSICIANS

EVIDENTLY, CHRISTIAN BAKERS HAVE LESS TO SAY ABOUT WHO CAN BUY THEIR PRODUCTS THAN LEFTIST MUSICIANS.

LEFTIST MUSICIANS - WHO  PROBABLY SUPPORT BOYCOTTING INDIANA OVER ITS NEW RELIGIOUS FREEDOM LAW, (ONE 19 OTHER STATES ALREADY HAVE - ONE LIKE ANOTHER TEDDY KENNEDY SUPPORTED) - ROUTINELY DEMAND THAT REPUBLICAN AND CONSERVATIVE POLITICIANS STOP USING THEIR MUSIC AT RALLIES AND ON COMMERCIALS:

TPM - 2010:
If stereotypes held true, you would think that the Republicans would be the ones telling folks to turn that blasted music down. But this year -- and indeed in many past election cycles -- it's the GOP that has been attracting cease-and-desist letters for pilfering music against the artists' wishes. So let's take a look at some of the more notable GOP music fails from this cycle, and cycles past.
Senate candidate Chuck DeVore (R-CA) got burned for using for using altered-lyric version ofDon Henley's "The Boys of Summer" and "All She Wants To Do Is Dance" for his campaign's Web ads. David Byrne is suing Gov. Charlie Crist (I-FL) for using "Road To Nowhere" in a Web ad during his previous Republican Senate primary fight, and of course, as we reported yesterday, Rush cut to the chase and told Senate nominee Rand Paul (R-KY) to stop playing "Tom Sawyer" and "The Spirit of Radio."The Orleans song "Still The One" has a special place in politics as it has been used not once without the band's permission, but twice -- and the first instance contributed to its author's entrance into national politics. In 2004, the Bush campaign used the song at a rally. As the song's main author, John Hall, told MSNBC in 2008: "George Bush was busy campaigning on an 'ownership society,' yet never asked me, the band, or the publishers for permission." Hall and other stakeholders in the song quickly sent a cease-and-desist letter, and the Bush campaign dropped the song.In 2006, Hall went on to be elected to Congress as a Democrat, defeating an incumbent Republican -- an event that was spurred in part by his experience from 2004. "It was one of the things that got him even madder," Hall press secretary Tom Staudter told TPMDC. And then in 2008, the Republicans used the song yet again, this time the ill-fated John McCain campaign. "This is yet another example of John McCain not learning anything from George Bush's mistakes," Hall told MSNBC, also adding: "The only one John McCain is Still the One for is George Bush."But that was only the tip of the iceberg for the McCain campaign -- which was practically a walking Limewire setup. Jackson Browne also sued it for using his song "Running On Empty" in an ad, for which the two sides later reached an out-of-court settlement. Van Halen objected to McCain's use of their song "Right Now" at a rally. The Wilson sisters from Heart strenuously objected to his campaign's use of "Barracuda" to promote Sarah Palin. And finally, the McCain campaign used "Pink Houses" and "Our Country" by John Mellencamp, who sent a letter demanding that they stop.Mellencamp had already been ripped off by the Bush campaign back in 2000, when they used "R.O.C.K. In The USA." He asked them to stop -- but that wasn't the end of it. "They said OK, and then used it anyway," Mellencamp told the Indianapolis Star, pointing out that the Bush campaign only stopped after the national media made fun of them for it. "I think they kind of said, 'Oh, this isn't playing the way we thought it would.' So I think they quit using it -- I think." (The Indianapolis Star, September 3, 2000, via Nexis.)The Bush campaign also used the Tom Petty song "I Won't Back Down," and the Sting tune "Brand New Day" -- and was told in each case to stop. Randall Wixen, the publisher of "I Won't Back Down," told the Bush camp to stop after being asked to do so by Petty's management, saying that the use of the song "creates, either intentionally or unintentionally, the impression that ... [the Bush] campaign have been endorsed by Tom Petty, which is not true."Four years earlier, the Bob Dole campaign was threatened with a lawsuit for its rewrite of the 1960s soul classic, "Soul Man," turning it into "Dole Man," much to the chagrin of the song's publishers at Rondor Music International. The campaign agreed to stop using the jingle, as the Chicago Tribune reported in September 1996: "Rondor announced on Tuesday that it had warned the Dole/Kemp campaign it could be held liable for damages of $100,000 for each unauthorized use of the song, plus legal costs, if a satisfactory settlement was not reached."Perhaps the most famous music fail was President Ronald Reagan's invocation during his 1984 re-election campaign of Bruce Springsteen -- Reagan did not actually play Springsteen's music, but tied his brand to the Boss's in a speech. "America's future rests in a thousand dreams inside your hearts," Reagan said. "It rests in the message of hope in songs of a man so many young American's admire: New Jersey's own Bruce Springsteen. And helping you make those dreams come true is what this job of mine is all about."Springsteen fired back by declaring at a concert that he doubted Reagan ever listened to the "Nebraska" album. Then the Democrats tried to claim Springsteen's support, only to have the Boss make it clear he was not endorsing anybody. (He later hit the campaign trail for John Kerry in 2004, and Barack Obama in 2008.)


THERE'S MORE:

NYTIMES - 2012:
Let’s say you’re a Republican running for president. You’re looking for a rousing pop anthem to pump up your troops and underscore your message. There’s plenty of music out there, but you have a problem: most of the pop stars, it seems, prefer Democrats. Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich were forced this week to stop using songs at their rallies after songwriters complained that the campaigns had played the pieces without permission. Strike another two songs from the Republican playlist: “Eye of the Tiger,” by Survivor, and “Wavin’ Flag,” by the Somali­ born musician K’naan. “When you think about every iconic song that has emotional resonance for millions and millions of Americans, in almost every instance, Republican candidates can’t use the song because the artist is not supportive,” said Steve Schmidt, a Republican campaign strategist who was Senator John McCain’s campaign manager in 2008 and worked on the re­election campaign of President George W. Bush. “All these artists are delighted to sell concert tickets to independents and Republicans.”
It's become a staple of politics: a politician walks onstage to a song. Musician gets mad. The latest flare-up came when the punk band Dropkick Murphys instructed Republican Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker to "please stop using our music in any way," they tweeted, then added: "We literally hate you !!!" ... And it's also not the first time this has happened in modern political history. As The Post's Chris Richards explained in 2011:
... this trope has played out during every campaign season like a broken record. Sometimes the disputes go unresolved. Artists can take legal action when a politician uses their music in a campaign advertisement without permission, but they have little recourse against candidates who pump the singers’ hits at public appearances — aside from shaming them in the pages of Rolling Stone.
THESE LEFTIST MUSICIANS THINK IT'S FINE FOR THEM TO DENY THEIR SERVICES AND/OR PRODUCTS TO PEOPLE THEY DON'T LIKE OR CAUSES THEY DON'T APPROVE OF, BUT THEY DENY THAT RIGHT TO CONSERVATIVES AND RELIGIOUS PEOPLE.

WHICH PROVES ONCE AGAIN - AND LIKE FOR THE ZILLIONTH TIME - THAT LEFTISTS ARE EITHER HYPOCRITICAL SHITHEADS OR UNPRINCIPLED SCUM.

FOREIGN SPENDING IN ISRAELI ELECTIONS IN FORSEEABLE FUTURE

One of Netanyahu's campaign managers sees a wave of overseas spending in Israeli elections coming in later years:
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's campaign manager is predicting a wave of outside spending in future Israeli elections.

"I think in every election campaign from this point onward, you'll see external groups slugging the market. It'll be very interesting," Netanyahu's top strategist, Aron Shaviv, told The Hill.

"This precedent, I think that we're about to see in Israeli elections, is the same effect that Citizens United vs. FEC had in the United States," Shaviv said, referring to the controversial Supreme Court ruling that allowed nonprofit groups to make unlimited independent political expenditures.

In light of the precedent, Shaviv is considering leading a right-wing political action committee in the next election.

During the campaign, Netanyahu allies decried the influence of foreigners, a group that saw a higher profile this year, arguing they found a loophole by not directly supporting a candidate but merely opposing the Israeli leader.

"The campaign slogan was 'Anyone but Bibi,' " Shaviv said. "Of course it was personal."

Shaviv, who is based in Israel but consults in other mostly European countries, said foreign groups took advantage of independent expenditures this cycle, estimating they outspent political parties in Israel at least 2-to-1 on advertising.
The chances foreign sources will continue this effort to influence Israeli elections is still very high, and that's why more efforts will be needed to put a halt to foreign interference. Even European countries and the USA are going to have to work hard if they don't want their own elections influenced for the wrong reasons.

HARVEY WEINSTEIN SAYS JEWS SHOULD FIGHT BACK AGAINST ANTI-SEMITES

Movie producer Weinstein has suddenly come out in favor of striking back at Jew-haters, though there's one part that warrants suspicion:
Hollywood movie mogul Harvey Weinstein told a packed audience at the Simon Wiesenthal Center’s National Tribute Dinner Tuesday night that the way to combat the new wave of anti-Semitism is to “stand up and kick these guys in the ass,” the Los Angeles Times reported.

“It’s like, here we go again, we’re right back where we were [before the Holocaust],” said the 63-year-old Weinstein after accepting the Wiesenthal Center’s Humanitarian Award. “We just can’t take it anymore [from] these crazy bastards.”

“I think it’s time that we, as Jews, get together with the Muslims who are honorable and peaceful, but we also have to go and protect ourselves,” he said. “There’s a quote from Kurt Vonnegut’s book The Sirens of Titan and it always was the motto of Miramax and now the Weinstein Co. It says, 'Good can triumph over evil if the angels are as organized as the mafia.’”
He may be alluding to "moderate" Muslims, but I still don't see why he has to bring that up. What matters is that Jews who really care must fight back against anti-semites the world over. On which note, he's doing the right thing to bring up this issue. But he shouldn't have to dampen the impact by making moot points.

WASHPOST: UNDER OBAMA, THE ENTIRE MIDDLE EAST HAS DEVOLVED INTO CHAOS AND WAR

WASHPOST: The meltdown in Yemen is pushing the Middle East dangerously closer to the wider regional conflagration many long have feared would arise from the chaos unleashed by the Arab Spring revolts. What began as a peaceful struggle to unseat a Yemeni strongman four years ago and then mutated into civil strife now risks spiraling into a full-blown war between regional rivals Saudi Arabia and Iran over a country that lies at the choke point of one of the world’s major oil supply routes. With negotiators chasing a Tuesday deadline for the framework of a deal to curb Iran’s nuclear program, it seems unlikely that Iran would immediately respond militarily to this week’s Saudi airstrikes in Yemen, analysts say. But the confrontation has added a new layer of unpredictability — and confusion — to the many, multidimensional conflicts that have turned large swaths of the Middle East into war zones over the past four years, analysts say....
... Not since the 1960s — and perhaps going back even further — has there been a time when so many Arab states and factions were engaged in so many wars, in quite such confusing configurations, said Frederic Wehrey of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. “It’s so dangerous,” he said.... 
... It was the culmination of years of humiliating Iranian expansion throughout the Middle East that has seen Sunni influence shrink at the expense of Iran and its allies, and Saudi interests seemingly abandoned by the United States, said Mustafa Alani of the Dubai-based Gulf Research Center.
“It started with Lebanon, then Syria, then Iraq and now Yemen. It’s like a domino, and Yemen is the first attempt to stop the domino,” he said. “Now there is
an awakening in the region, a counterstrategy, and Yemen is the testing ground. It is not just about Yemen, it is about changing the balance of power in the region.”
Alani blamed the United States and its pursuit of a deal with Iran for the expansion of Iranian influence that triggered the Saudi intervention.
ALL THIS IS THE RESULT OF OBAMA'S POLICIES AND ACTIONS:

  • HOW HE OUSTED MUBARAK AND HELPED THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD - FOES OF SAUDI ARABIA
  • HOW HE HAS ATTACKED ISRAEL FROM THE START, HOW HE TACITLY SUPORTED HAMAS IN THE LAST GAZA WAR, AND HOW HE RECENTLY TRIED TO OUST BIBI
  • HOW HE CODDLED ASSAD
  • HOW HE FELLATED PUTIN
  • HOW HE FELLATED THE IRANIAN AYATOLLAHS

ALL THIS WAS PREDICTED BY THE FOES OF OBAMA IN 2008.
 EVEN BUSH SAW IT:
NOTHING WILL GET BETTER UNTIL OBAMA IS NO LONGER POTUS.

IS OBAMA INEPT OR DOES HE DELIBERATELY AID AND ABET GLOBAL JIHAD?

That's really the only thing where there's room for debate: is Obama incompetent or is he deliberately aiding and betting jihadists?

From north Africa through the middle east, through south Asia: jihadists have all improved their positions since Obama was sworn in.

NOWHERE in the world are they in retreat compared to where they were in 2009.

Libya, Syria, Egypt, Iraq, Afghanistan, Nigeria, Mali, Yemen - are all under greater threat now than in 2009.

And Obama is about to make a deal with Iran which allows them to remain in violation of every prior IAEA and UNSC arrangement.

The results are too consistently in favor of global jihad to be the result of incompetence.

And Obama's overt efforts to hurt Israel should be the final "convincer" for all doubters:

With ISIS 18 miles from Israel's border, why is Obama putting the screws on them while bending over for Iran?

The simplest answer - the most elegant answer - the answer that passes Occam's Razor is that Obama is on the other side.

Obama is a traitor , not just to the USA, but to the entire West - to the Free World, to Judeo-Christian Civilization.

Obama is a clear and present danger to our nation, our allies - and all we hold dear.

We won't defeat the enemy until we make Obama irrelevant.

Congress had better grow some balls.

And Israel and Saudi Arabia and and Jordan and France and the Kurds should not hesitate to unite and take bold action.

The sooner the better.


LETTER WRITER TO POST-GAZETTE SUMS IT UP

A correspondent to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette defends the Israeli leadership:
Poor President Obama feels rebuked by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Well, too bad.

Take a look at what is going on in the Middle East. Does it really look like the Muslims want peace?

Let’s look at Israel. Every time Israel has tried to make peace it has been rebuked. How many wars have been started by Israel and how many by the Arabs? Does Mr. Obama really feel the Israelis should trust the Palestinians?

Remember what happened when the Israelis gave back Gaza? Think again, Mr. President.
Exactly.

EXPOSING ISRAEL'S NUKE SECRETS DOESN'T JUST HURT BIBI, OR THE LIKUD; IT HURTS ISRAEL AND HELPS IRAN


By exposing Israel's nuke secrets - ISRAEL, AN ALLY OF THE USA'S - Obama has exposed himself as a rabid anti-Zionist and an agent of Iran - IRAN, AN ENEMY OF THE USA - and as a man who should be removed from office, tried for treason and executed when found guilty.

AIRBUS TRAINING VIDEO SHOWING STANDARD COCKPIT-DOOR PROCEDURES, INCLUDING FOR EMERGENCIES...

THERE ARE REPORTS THAT ALLEGE THE COCKPIT DOOR ON THE GERMANWINGS AIRBUS WHICH MYSTERIOUSLY CRASHED IN THE FRENCH ALPS WAS LOCKED AND THAT THE PILOT TRIED UNSUCCESSFULLY TO ENTER.

HERE'S A VIDEO MADE BY AIRBUS WHICH SHOWS THE STANDARD PROCEDURES FOR OPENING THE COCKPIT DOOR - INCLUDING PROCEDURES TO USE DURING EMERGENCIES, SUCH AS WHEN THE PILOTS ARE INCAPACITATED.

HMMM... AFTER I WATCHED THE VIDEO (BELOW) IT SEEMED TO ME THAT THE PILOT SHOULD HAVE BEEN ABLE TO OPEN THE DOOR....

I WONDER WHY THE DOOR FAILED TO RESPOND TO THE EMERGENCY OPENING PROCEDURES????

ANY IDEAS OUT THERE???????

ALSO: BECAUSE THE DOOR OPENS INWARDLY, IT IS NOT LIKELY (IN MY MIND) THAT A CATASTROPHIC DECOMPRESSION OF THE COCKPIT WOULD HAVE FORCED THE DOOR TO REMAIN CLOSED - AS THERE WOULD HAVE BEEN LOWER AIR PRESSURE IN THE COCKPIT THAN THE CABIN AND THE DOOR SHOULD HAVE OPENED. (UNLESS THE INCOMING WIND FROM A BROKEN WINDSCREEN COULD HAVE KEPT THE DOOR SHUT.)

I THINK THIS MIGHT MEAN THAT THE CO-PILOT HAD TO HAVE DELIBERATELY PREVENTED THE DOOR FROM OPENING...

WATCH THE VIDEO AND DECIDE FOR YOURSELF:


ISIS IS ONLY 18 MILES FROM ISRAEL. SO, WHY IS OBAMA PUTTING MORE PRESSURE ON THE ISRAELIS THAN ON ASSAD OR IRAN OR BAGHDAD?

OBAMA IS BENDING OVER BACKWARDS TO APPEASE IRAN, BUT PRESSURING ISRAEL - AND FAILING TO ADEQUATELY AID THE KURDS AND THEIR PESHMERGAS FORCES WHO ARE BATTLING ISIS ON THE GROUND.

THIS, WHILE ISIS IS ONLY 18 MILES FROM ISRAEL'S BORDER WITH SYRIA.

IF OBAMA WAS A GOOD ALLY OF ISRAEL'S AND THE KURDS, THEN HE'D HAVE THE USA DOING MORE TO HELP THEM.

THIS IS JUST MORE PROOF THAT OBAMA IS NOT FOR PEACE; HE'S ON THE OTHER SIDE.


TWEET OF THE DAY: CRUZ IS A HYPOCRITE FOR OBEYING THE LAW

Jim Treacher
@jtLOL
Ted Cruz is complying with Obamacare. That means he's a hypocrite.
Obama only complies with the laws that suit him. That means he's not.

NEW ISRAEL FUND GOT TONS OF BREAD FROM STATE DEPT

The leftist organization got a lot of money from Obama's administration:
The controversial New Israel Fund and its social change and political lobbying organization – known as SHATIL – have received more than $1 million from the State Department under a program designed to create political change, reform, and activism in the Middle East. The government program, Middle East Partnership Initiative (MEPI), has extended more than $600 million in grants to political and social activists and reformers in 18 Middle East countries, mainly with unstable or challenged political environments in need of democratic improvement. “

MEPI supports organizations and individuals in their efforts to promote political, economic, and social reform in the Middle East and North Africa,” according to the agency’s official self-description.

The list of nations in which MEPI operates includes such countries as Algeria, Libya, Lebanon, and Yemen.

However, MEPI’s sphere of engagement also includes Israel – ironically the only pluralistic, stable, and democratic nation in the Mideast. Among the leading recipients for MEPI grants in Israel is the New Israel Fund and its SHATIL organization. The NIF is an international, US-based 501(c)(3) charitable organization that has generated intense acrimony within the Jewish community and Israeli establishment for its highly politicized activities.

While MEPI’s involvement with the New Israel Fund has been previously reported in print and online, the million-dollar nature of the partnership has not emerged until now.

Vocal critics in both the U.S. and Israel charge that the New Israel Fund has knowingly financed groups that support the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanction (BDS) movement, and worked to get Israeli soldiers prosecuted for so-called ‘war crimes.” Benny Yanay of an Israeli military organization called Consensus, representing some 3,000 members of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), stated, “The New Israel Fund acts against Israel—against the soldiers of our country. It is supported by foreign governments and organizations so that Israeli soldiers will be weakened.” Other Israel military men and women have alleged that the NIF is trying to “destabilize the IDF.”
This is very grave, yet it explains why, as observers have noted, the Obama administration's interference backfired:
US president Barack Obama inadvertently helped Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's re-election by interfering in the March 17 race, Democratic and Republican strategists who advised Israeli parties said in recent days.

The Obama administration has been increasingly critical of Netanyahu since he won the election. The statements by the strategists indicated that the president only has himself to blame.

"It’s quite possible, even reasonable, that the White House had no strategy for the Israeli elections, but if its goal was to hurt — or least not help — Netanyahu, then it erred," said Mark Mellman, a strategist for Democratic Senate minority leader Harry Reid who worked for Yesh Atid during the campaign. "Raising the stakes on his congressional address through a series of cold shoulders only enhanced Netanyahu’s standing with his constituency."

Mellman wrote on the Washington website The Hill that Likud supporters were "delighted to see [Netanyahu] stand up to President Obama, and the tougher it got for him, the more that 23 percent cheered — and moved into his corner."

In another report on The Hill, Republican strategist John McLaughlin, who worked for the Likud campaign, said Obama's role during the Israeli election was larger than reported in the US. McLaughlin noted that the anti-Netanyahu organization V15 was guided by former Obama political operative Jeremy Bird.
There, see? When something like this takes place, you can't be surprised if it only has the opposite effects of what Obama surely wanted. Even Democrats are clearly disappointed with him.

WHAT THE MIKE BROWN LIES SAY ABOUT OBAMA


THE DOJ SAYS THAT MIKE BROWN NEVER HAD HIS HANDS UP AND HE NEVER SAID DON'T SHOOT.

OBAMA LIED ABOUT THE WHOLE DANG THING.

AS HE LIED ABOUT OBAMACARE.

AS HE LIED ABOUT AMNESTY.

AS HE LIED ABOUT HIS SUPPORT FOR TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE.

AS HE LIED ABOUT EVERYTHING ELSE.

IS HE DIDN'T LIE, THEN HE'D HAVE NOTHING TO SAY.


WAS GERMANWINGS AIRBUS SHOT DOWN BY ISIS OR AQIM WITH A SHOULDER LAUNCHED MISSILE SMUGGLED ACROSS THE MEDITERRANEAN FROM LIBYA?

CBS NEWS - 3/25/15:
The U.S. has been unable to secure thousands of potentially dangerous shoulder-fired missiles known as "MANPADS" that were leftover from the Qaddafi regime in Libya, CBS News has learned. MANPADS stands for "Man-portable air-defense systems." According to a well-placed source, hundreds of the missiles have been tracked as having gone to Al Qaeda Islamic Maghreb (AQIM), an Algeria-based Sunni Muslim terrorist group fighting for control in Mali. "I would imagine they're trying to get their hands on as many weapons such as MANPADS as they can," says CBS News national security consultant Juan Zarate. "It's a danger both to the military conflict underway in Mali and a real threat to civilian aircraft if, in fact, terrorists have their hands on these MANPADS."
ISIS -WHICH NOW CONTROLS THE COAST OF LIBYA - HAS THREATENED TO INVADE EUROPE FROM LIBYA:

THE DAILY BEAST 2/17/15:
Last weekend in Italy, as the threat of ISIS in Libya hit home with a new video addressed to “the nation signed with the blood of the cross” and the warning, “we are south of Rome,” Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi shuttered the Italian embassy in Tripoli and raised his fist with the threat of impending military action. Never mind that Italy has only 5,000 troops available that are even close to deployable, according to the defense ministry. Or that the military budget was cut by 40 percent two years ago, which has kept the acquisition of 90 F-35 fighter jets hanging in the balance and left the country combat-challenged to lead any mission—especially one against an enemy like the Islamic State.
THE TELEGRAPH:
Islamic State militants are planning a takeover of Libya as a "gateway" to wage war across the whole of southern Europe, letters written by the group's supporters have revealed. The jihadists hope to flood the north African state with militiamen from Syria and Iraq, who will then sail across the Mediterranean posing as migrants on people trafficking vessels, according to plans seen by Quilliam, the British anti-extremist group.
The fighters would then run amok in southern European cities and also try to attack maritime shipping. The document is written by an Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) propagandist who is believed to be an important online recruiter for the terror in Libya, where security has collapsed in the wake of the revolution that unseated Colonel Gaddafi in 2011. The group has already established Libyan-based cells, who on Sunday released a video showing a mass beheading of 21 Egyptian Christian guest workers .
The video, which prompted Egypt to launch retaliatory bombing raids on Isil positions in Libya, included footage of a khaki-clad militant pointing a bloodstained finger northwards, declaring: "We will conquer Rome, by Allah's permission." The Isil propagandist, who uses the alias Abu Arhim al-Libim, describes Libya as having "immense potential" for Isil. He points out with relish that it is awash with weapons from the Libyan civil war, when large quantities of Col Gaddafi's arsenals were appropriated by rebels.
NYPOST:
“Something triggered a descent,” Paul Hayes, director of safety at London-based Ascend, an aviation-data provider, told Bloomberg News. “They’ll want to know whether that’s to do with the aircraft, with some external event, with the crew or with a combination of all of those. And they’ll want to know why the descent wasn’t stopped.”
WITNESSES NEAR THE CRASH SIGHT ARE REPORTED TO HAVE HEARD MORE THAN FEW STRANGE LOAD SOUNDS - ONE SAID HE THOUGHT IT WAS A FIGHTER JET.

WERE THESE SOUNDS THE NOISE OF SHOULDER-LAUNCHED MISSILES?

I THINK THIS IS A POSSIBILITY BECAUSE THERE WAS NO DISTRESS CALL FROM THE COCKPIT; WHATEVER HAPPENED OCCURRED SUDDENLY AND GAVE THE COCKPIT CREW NO TIME TO SEND A MAYDAY.

THAT MIGHT BE A SHOULDER-LAUNCHED MISSILE.

UPDATE: NYTIMES 3/25/15:
Speaking on the French radio station RTL, Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said on Wednesday that terrorism was “not a privileged hypothesis at the moment” but that no theories had been definitively excluded. 
STAY TUNED...

WHY DID HILLARY AND BARACK REALLY MEET PRIVATELY???????

Hillary took EXTRAORDINARY measures, which violated law and regulations, to keep her email private and under her complete control.

Hillary would NOT have taken such measures to hide little things.

Hillary would ONLY take such measures to hide really REALLY BAD things.

Hillary claims she only deleted PERSONAL emails - 31,000 of them. If this is true, then the server now ONLY contains official emails of a non-personal nature. Therefore; she has no good reasons to withhold the server from the government. The fact that she is still refusing to do so means she must believe she has something to hide - perhaps something which might be discovered about the deleted emails: what they REALLY contained and who they were REALLY addressed to.

What Hillary is hiding must be HUGE is she was ready, willing and able to commit a felony and risk going to jail and risk losing another presidential contest to keep it a secret.

Since the Congress is investigating - and the State Department and the DOJ could be investigating, and since their investigations could lead to the discovery of those secrets Hillary must do whatever she can to stop them.

That's where Obama comes in:

Obama can stop them the way he and his DOJ and IRS have stopped the IRS investigation.

I guess that Hillary went to see Obama to make sure he does whatever he can to help her - OR ELSE!

That's right: I think Hillary met face to face with Obama to say things she could not write, culd not email, could not say into a phone because it had to be utterly and completeley secret and off the record.

Hillary went to the Oval Office to see Obama face to face to BLACKMAIL him into protecting her.

Hilary knows where the skeletons are buried and she told Obama that ifn she is hung out to dry on her emails, then she will take him with her.

It's just how the Clintons and the Chicago Gang do things...

THE GREAT SHARYL ATTKISSON ASKS SEVERAL IMPORTANT QUESTIONS HERE.


BRITISH MUSLIM MEDIC TREATING ISIS MEMBERS PRAISED CHARLIE HEBDO MURDERS

A Muslim medical student from England who joined the evil cause of ISIS also supported the massacre of the Charlie Hebdo contributors:
A British medical student who travelled to Syria to treat Jihadi fighters in Islamic State hospitals once praised the Charlie Hebdo murders, it emerged last night.

Private schoolgirl Lena Mamoun Abdelgadir sent a smiling selfie to her sister as she crossed the border from Turkey on March 13 to reach Islamic State territory.

The respected surgeon’s daughter is one of nine British doctors and students in their late teens or early 20s who are now believed to be volunteering in hospitals there.

[...] She once retweeted: ‘The pictures that the 2 journalists produced on Islam and prophet Muhammed (saw) was more horrific then their killing.’
And the mental illness she's stricken with is more horrific than the injuries the ISIS terrorists received. She's a disgusting excuse for a human who dedicated herself to helping the wrong crowd.

BRENNAN'S BACKWARD BEND

The CIA chief made a fool of himself defending Islam and claiming ISIS isn't motivated by it:
CIA chief John Brennan said in an interview with Fox News on Sunday that the Islamic State group is motivated by a violent -- and not a religious -- ideology, refusing to link the terrorist group to Islam.

"It is a very twisted, perverted interpretation of a religion that they purport to represent, but in no way do they represent," he said. "It's an ideology of violence. That's what it is. It is not a religious ideology."

Fox News host Chris Wallace pressed Brennan, asking if he agrees that Islam is a part of that ideology.

Brennan responded, saying, "They purport to be Muslims. But as I said, the overwhelming majority of Muslims throughout the world roundly denounce and condemn what they're doing. And that's why we should not give them any type of religious legitimacy."

He clarified that Islamic State ideology "Is a corruption of the Islamic faith. It is a distortion of it. It does not represent the Muslim community or Islam."
Sorry, Brennan, but you have furthered the disfavor to all victims of the Religion of Peace. Actually, if Wallace refused to cite any Koranic verses, then he's just as guilty as Brennan is. That's a telling clue Fox is no better than a lot of other mainstream news sources.

ISLAMIC JIHAD ON THE RISE IN JUDEA/SAMARIA

One of the worst local terrorist cells is building up strength:
Palestinian Islamic Jihad is gaining strength in Judea and Samaria, representing a new terrorist threat. Senior IDF officials from the Central territorial command consider Islamic Jihad to be a small yet highly focused entity, making it a dangerous and disturbing addition to the plethora of actors in the territories.

Islamic Jihad's central base is in the Gaza Strip, and it has been a loyal Iranian proxy for many years, depending on Tehran for funds, training, and weapons.

Iran, for its part, has attempted to get money into the West Bank to spread its influence, so far with very limited success, due to Israeli security efforts and the Palestinian Authority's resistance to Iranian sponsorship.

A second force that is emerging in the West Bank is the Fatah Tanzim, which was once a dominant terrorist group during the years of the Second Intifada. Youths from Fatah Tanzim are not bound by an agreement that older members came to with Israel in the previous decade, which saw Israel remove them from its wanted list in exchange for a cessation of terror activities.
I wonder if that was Ehud Olmert's bunch that made such a bad agreement with them? This is one more reason why it's good the Likud was elected.

WATER WAR

How anti-Israel NGOs are attacking the country while sabotaging projects meant to help Arabs in Gaza get it right:
"Water is a regional issue, and one that, with close cooperation between all parties, can ensure equitable, maximal access to clean and safe water and help create a more peaceful environment," said Prof. Gerald Steinberg, president of NGO Monitor. "Unfortunately, NGOs would rather politicized this issue and demonize Israel than improve Palestinian access to clean water."

NGO Monitor points out that EWASH, a coalition of NGOs and UN organizations, opposed a desalinization project in Gaza funded by the EU that would improve water supply, trying to justify their opposition by saying the project would "accommodate the occupation" and "legitimize Israeli actions."

A full 11 pieces of disinformation spread by NGOs regarding water are debunked by the report. The key culprits are NGOs Al Haq, Palestinian Center for Human Rights (PCHR), BADIL, Coalition of Women for Peace, Who Profits, and EWASH.

A central false claim by the anti-Israel NGOs is that Israel's limitation of goods into Gaza "prevents Gaza's children from having normal opportunities...to drink clean water."

Despite the charges, the major cause of Gaza's water shortage is in fact the poor maintenance of water and sewage within Gaza, by which the Hamas terrorist government has long siphoned off aid and funds to its terrorist infrastructure while neglecting necessary civilian infrastructures.
I'll bet those NGOs must be celebrating about all the people whose lives they made miserable by scuttling these projects meant to help them.

MCCAIN TELLS OBAMA TO STOP WHINING ABOUT ISRAEL

John McCain's been doing some proper conduct lately, like panning Code Pink, and also telling Obama to stop his bawling about Israel not voting the way he'd want:
“There was a free and fair democratic election. The only nation in the region that will have such a thing. The president should get over it. Get over your temper tantrum, Mr. President.”
Yeah, and find a better subject to worry about, like Iran's nuclear warfare in the works. If they're allowed to keep on in any way with this, it could jeopardize the USA one day too. McCain's right, and I'm glad to see he been saying more sensible things now.
