None of the Anti-Israel crowd mentions the Other Front in the Gaza War…. so I will.
Here is an article about what has been occurring on the other side of the Gaza Strip. The Egyptians are Jews also aren’t they? They must be since they feel the need to do the same thing the Israeli’s are doing.
Egypt army destroys 13 more Gaza tunnels
Cairo (AFP) – Egypt’s army said Sunday it has destroyed 13 more tunnels connecting the Sinai Peninsula to the Gaza Strip, taking to 1,639 the overall number it has laid waste to.
Cairo has poured troops into the peninsula to counter a rising insurgency since the ouster of Islamist president Mohamed Morsi last year, and its security operation involves the destruction of these tunnels.
The Palestinian militant group Hamas, which is the main power in Gaza, reportedly uses the tunnels to smuggle arms, food and money into the blockaded coastal enclave.
Israel has been waging a military offensive on Gaza since July 8 to halt rocket fire, and it launched a ground assault on July 17 aimed at destroying the network of tunnels.
It accuses Hamas of using the tunnels to attacks on Israel.
Ties between Hamas and Cairo have deteriorated since the Egyptian army deposed Morsi on July 3, 2013. Hamas is an affiliate of Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood.
Cairo also accuses of Hamas of being involved in militant attacks inside Egypt, which have multiplied since Morsi was toppled.
Militant groups say their attacks are in retaliation for a police crackdown on Morsi’s supporters. The crackdown has seen more than 1,400 people killed in street clashes.
Maybe all those around the Palestinians know they’re a threat that must be destroyed….
I saw this announcement this morning. It’s 100 days till the U.S. Midterm Elections. The big chat is whether or not the Republicans will gain control of the Senate. There is no doubt they keep the house. They need 6 seats to take the Senate.
It is going to be close, 3 should be shoe ins and 3 are a flip of the coin. Personally I hope they don’t get control. The best thing for the longterm outcome for Conservatives is 2 more years of the same. If the Republicans gain control nothing will be able to be passed that will change a single Obama or Democrat Policy.
They will lack a veto proof majority, and Obama will veto everything that is passed. No matter who controls the Senate nothing will change except that the Press will blame every problem the Nation is going through on the Republicans.
So here is to the Democrats, May you succeed in keeping your majority. God bless Gridlock.
This is the inevitable consequence of dismantling the institution of marriage.
The highest human rights court in Europe has told European LGBTs that they have no human right to same-sex marriage, in a case that also shows how complicated sexual and marital norms have become in this new transsexual world.
Now, follow the logic…
The case arose after a man in Finland, who was married with a child, decided he wanted to live as a woman. After a sex-change operation, he attempted to change his governmental “male identity number” to a female one. He was turned down because, according to law, he needed his wife’s consent to change their man-woman marriage to a “registered partnership”, which she had withheld.
The problem in short is that this married man and woman could no longer be considered married in Finland if he changed his sex to female because Finland does not allow same-sex marriage. The couple would be required to accept a “registered partnership”, something they objected to.
The couple sued and told the court that “a divorce would be against their religious convictions” and that a “registered partnership did not provide the same security as marriage” and that “their child would be placed in a different situation from children born within wedlock.”
A 70-year-old councillor who called herself ‘the nigger in the woodpile’ has been sent on an equality and diversity course.
Convent-educated Elizabeth Peters used the offensive term while speaking to a member of the public after a Stroud District Council meeting. The grandmother, who runs a bed and breakfast in Brimscombe, Gloucestershire, and organises the village fete, apologised but said the phrase was commonly used when she was young.
She said: ‘I’m 70 and grew up with this kind of thing. It was just something which slipped out. It was not directed at anyone except myself. ‘There were no foreigners around. I have already apologised to the two people who were upset. ‘I have also gone through with what the council wanted me to do – go on an equality and diversity course. ‘It will cost me £150 plus transport to London or Birmingham. It’s a really costly mistake.’
1. She was referring to HERSELF – no one else.
2. She was using a common expression for her generation.
3. She was cowed into accepting this suppression of expression by the language Nazis.
The Kansas Supreme Court on Friday overturned the death sentences of two brothers convicted of killing four friends who were robbed and forced to engage in sex acts before being shot to death and left in a snow-covered Wichita field.
The court also struck down three of the four capital murder convictions each against Jonathan and Reginald Carr, citing procedural problems at the brothers’ joint trial for its decisions. It upheld one capital murder conviction for each of them. Prosecutors said the brothers broke into a Wichita home in December 2000 and forced the five people there to have sex with each other and later to withdraw money from ATMs. Two women were raped repeatedly before all five were taken to a soccer field and shot while they were kneeling. Four of them — 29-year-old Aaron Sander, 27-year-old Brad Heyka, 26-year-old Jason Befort and 25-year-old Heather Muller — died.
The sheer EVIL of these thugs is beyond words. They are a blot on the earth. Put them under it.
We noted last year that the NyPo reported that the (GWB) White House had redacted, and therefore covered up, 28 full pages from Congress’ investigative report on 9/11 dealing with “specific sources of foreign support”. It said:
After the 9/11 attacks, the public was told al Qaeda acted alone, with no state sponsors.
But the White House never let it see an entire section of Congress’ investigative report on 9/11 dealing with “specific sources of foreign support” for the 19 hijackers, 15 of whom were Saudi nationals.
It was kept secret and remains so today [...]
A pair of lawmakers who recently read the redacted portion say they are “absolutely shocked” at the level of foreign state involvement in the attacks.
Reps. Walter Jones (R-NC) and Stephen Lynch (D-Mass.) can’t reveal the nation identified by it without violating federal law.
A third congressman, Rep. Thomas Massie, R-KY has now read those secret 28 pages and he was so “shocked” that he called a press conference recently to discuss it -
Whatever we think we know about 9/11, we don’t know what the White House is keeping from becoming known, and therefore information is incomplete. The GWB and Obama regimes think that the people either have no right to know (which is self-evident), or that they cannot handle the truth, which is also quite possible but not a legitimate reason. What can be inferred is that the official position of Congress is that 9/11 was not the work of non-state actors.
Impeachment that’s the push. Not by the conservatives, but it is being pushed by the White House and the Democrat Party.
It seems the Left has come up with their strategy to rally their base in a hope to save the midterm elections. In several stories this weekend even from the White House Press Secretary Mr. I’m not Earnest. Could you imagine having a job as a press secretary and your last name being Earnest …. Anyway, The push is on for Impeachment. Now the Dems say that as a regular line in their funding drives, “If the Republicans get control of the Senate they’ll impeach Obama” give us money.
I ask Why? Why would anyone on the right other than just the pure suicidal nature of Congressional Republicans ever push for that? Obama is the gift that keeps on giving. All we have to do is survive the next 2 years. He has done more damage to the left than anything the inept politicians on the right could ever do. Immigration is just the latest and won’t be the last. So don’t believe what you read no one wants this fool to do anything, but run his term.
White House: Republicans May Push to Impeach Obama If They Get the Chance
The notion of impeaching President Barack Obama got substantial attention Friday from two White House officials, who both said senior Republicans wanted to see it happen. But they couldn’t name any senior Republicans when pressed.
Further, White House press secretary Josh Earnest expressed doubt about whether House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) was sincere when he said impeachment is not on the table.
“I do believe that the speaker said on a number of occasions that there would not be steps taken by Republicans to shut down the government over health care,” Earnest said of Boehner, adding, “Maybe you need to ask him a little bit more about whether impeachment is on the table or not.”
Some conservatives have called for impeaching Obama regarding executive overreach on issues such as Obamacare, immigration and guns without congressional authorization. The Democratic National Committee and Organizing for America have consistently used impeachment in fundraising emails to warn donors about what could happen if Republicans win more seats in the House and gain control of the Senate.
The topic first made news Friday after Dan Pfeiffer, a counselor to the president, told a Christian Science Monitor breakfast: “I would not discount that possibility. I think Speaker Boehner, by going down the path of this lawsuit, has opened the door to Republicans possibly considering impeachment at some in the future.”
There is another little fray going on in Washington. The House Oversight Committee whose job IS to over see that Laws are being followed by the Executive Branch has subpenaed David Simas, director of the White House Office of Political Strategy and Outreach. It is an office that coordinates the Presidents political activity. This office under this President, and others has violated the Law several times.
In it’s very nature this office walks a fine line on the Law that a Government official is very restricted in the type of political activity they can conduct while using tax payer monies. Republicans believe the office is being used a political campaign operation, a violation of federal election law. This is the second subpoena that Mr. Simas has received.
In both cases the Obama Regime has stated that White House officials are immune to a congressional subpoena to testify. Funny this has NEVER been the case under ANY other administration.
The D.C. Representative had the following absurd comment on the nerve of a subpoena being served to the Obama White House.
Yes they do sweetheart, that’s why it’s called OVERSIGHT.
The way I see it, this means that the Police have WAY too much spare time on their hands. Thoughts…?
Police in County Down have warned skinny dippers that they could be placed on the sex offenders register. Officers said they were “treating this kind of behaviour extremely seriously”. “Two males have had to be reported for indecent exposure as they thought it was a good idea to take all their clothes off to go for a swim – not a good idea,” an officer wrote on the PSNI Holywood Facebook page.
