Disgrace: Dhimmi Hillary Clinton Denounces Bachmann's Call For Islamist Infiltration Investigations

The entire Obama regime is a nest of vipers that should be charged with aiding and abetting the enemy.

Via Big Government:

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has finally responded to the request by five House Republicans for an investigation into the Islamist links to Clinton’s long-time aide Huma Abedin.

Clinton tried to take the moral high ground, saying there is “no place in our politics” for such “assaults” and continuing: “Leaders have to be active in stepping in and sending messages about protecting the diversity within their countries. We did see some of that in our own country. We saw Republicans stepping up and standing up against the kind of assaults that really have no place in our politics.”

State Department spokesman Philippe Reines has hysterically denounced the calls for an investigation as "nothing but vicious and disgusting lies  … anyone who traffics in them should be ashamed of themselves.”

But the House members who called for an investigation, Reps. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.), Trent Franks (R-Ariz.), Tom Rooney (R-Fla.), Lynn Westmoreland (R-Ga.) and Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) have not capitulated to their critics, and instead have pointed out that their calls for an investigation into Abedin are part of a larger investigation into any Islamist infiltration in the federal government.

 They justifiably claim that the media has focused on Abedin, and missed the larger point.

Disaster-In-Chief's Campaign Calls Romney's Foreign Trip 'Disaster'

It's nice to see that former Propaganda Minister Gibbs still knows how to shovel the manure. Obama has been the greatest disaster to ever infest the White House.

(Wall St. Journal) -- President Barack Obama’s campaign ripped into opponent Mitt Romney’s just-completed foreign trip, calling it “an embarrassing disaster” and a failed test for a potential commander in chief.

“Romney was auditioning to be leader of the free world, and it’s clear he was simply unable to represent America on the world stage,” said senior campaign adviser Robert Gibbs.

He said that any president of the U.S. must be able to carefully measure his words, and that Mr. Romney failed, a reference to comments in London that the British took as an insult to their Olympic preparations and comments in Israel about cultural differences that upset Palestinians.

“He both offended our closest ally and triggered a troubling reaction in the most sensitive region of the world. He certainly didn’t prove to anyone that he passed the commander-in-chief test,” Mr. Gibbs said, on a conference call with reporters.

Romney campaign spokesman Ryan Williams issued a statement in response to the call that didn’t directly address the Obama campaign’s critique. “Mitt Romney will be a president who unapologetically stands up for America and the enduring values of freedom,” he said.
“President Obama has weakened America’s position in the world and frayed relationships with our closest allies.”

Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood President Frees Imprisoned Fellow Islamists

The Muslim Brotherhood show their true colors

 (Reuters) - Egypt's President Mohamed Mursi has freed a group of Islamists jailed for militancy during Hosni Mubarak's era a step seen as a gesture to hardliners who supported his presidential bid.

A lawyer for 17 Islamists, many of them held since the 1990s, say they owe their release to a pardon issued by Mursi. At least three of the released Islamists had been condemned to death, said the lawyer Ibrahim Ali.

Those released in recent days include members of al-Gama'a al-Islamiya, jailed during the group's armed insurrection against the state in the 1990s, and Islamic Jihad, the movement behind the 1981 assassination of President Anwar Sadat.

The pardon underlines efforts by Egypt's first Islamist president to satisfy the some of the hardliners he courted with election promises to implement Islamic law.

Mursi is facing calls from Islamists to secure the release of the remaining few dozen of their brethren who they believe are being kept behind bars by security forces resistant to the new president's wishes.

But he is also facing criticism from activists who are questioning his priorities, believing he has not moved far or fast enough to secure proper justice for thousands of others jailed by military courts since Mubarak was deposed, although he launched an investigation that did result in some releases.

"Mursi is paying off a political debt," said Nabil Abdel Fattah, a political analyst, referring to a move he said would anger Egyptians who recall the bloodshed of the 1980s and 1990s.

CAIR Regains Tax-Exempt Status

CAIR must be very grateful to their benefactor Obama
  (Washington Post) -- The Council on American-Islamic Relations, a national Muslim civil rights group that has frequently drawn fire from conservatives, has regained its tax-exempt status.

The Washington, D.C.-based CAIR and its related foundation were two of about 275,000 nonprofits that lost tax exempt status last year for not filing tax returns for three years in a row. Last month, the Internal Revenue Service sent a letter to the CAIR-Foundation Inc., saying the nonprofit had regained its tax-exempt status.

“We are obviously pleased that all the paperwork issues have been resolved and our tax-exempt status has been restored,” said Ibrahim Hooper, communications director for CAIR. Hooper did not know the details of what paperwork, including tax returns, had been filed.

The nonprofit has opposed anti-Shariah law bills across the country, fights discrimination against Muslims and aims to promote a positive image of Muslim-Americans and Islam.

Critics have used CAIR’s lost tax exemption to criticize the group. Those critics also claim CAIR has terrorist ties because it and other Muslim groups were named as unindicted co-conspirators in a 2007 trial of the now defunct Holy Land Foundation in Texas. Holy Land Foundation officials were convicted in 2009 of diverting funds to Hamas.

Coptic-Christian Teacher In Egypt Arrested For Posting Cartoons Offensive To Islam On Facebook

Coptic-Christians suffering under the boot of the Muslim Brotherhood has just begun
(Ahramonline)-- Bishoy Kamel, a Coptic-Christian teacher from the Upper Egyptian Governorate of Sohag, was arrested on Monday for sharing cartoons on a Facebook page that allegedly defamed the Islamic faith and the Prophet Muhammad.

Mohamed Safwat, an Egyptian citizen who has pressed charges against Kamel, also claimed that the latter had insulted Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi and members of his own family.

Kamel, who has been detained for four days pending investigation, has admitted to managing the Facebook page in question.

He claims, however, that he was not responsible for the content of the page, which, he said, had been hacked on Saturday.

In June of last year, Naguib Sawiris, Coptic billionaire and founder of the liberal Free Egyptians party, was severely criticised after posting a cartoon of Disney characters Mickey and Minnie Mouse dressed in Islamic garb. Several Islamist lawyers subsequently lodged a complaint with Egypt's attorney-general against Sawiris, whom they accused of offending Islam.

Bachmann Fights Back: 'We Cannot Elevate Political Correctness Over National Security'

The most subversive administration in American history.
( -- Republican U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann said the backlash and national headlines in the past two weeks over her calls for an investigation into alleged Islamic influence in U.S. government show that political correctness is trumping national security concerns in this country. "The concerns I have and my colleagues have are real," Bachmann told the Pioneer Press on Monday, July 30. "We cannot elevate political correctness over national security."

Bachmann was in Minnesota touring work on the St. Croix River for the new bridge near Stillwater and meeting with small business owners in St. Michael and Hanover.

On her way to a Republican Jewish Coalition event, she took two questions on the firestorm -- though replied to others on the bridge -- that has followed her comments, which also included linking a fellow lawmaker and a top State Department aide to the Muslim Brotherhood.

The three-term congresswoman from West Lakeland Township said avoiding the subject of radical Islam in the name of political correctness isn't new.

She talked about the 2009 Fort Hood, Texas, shooting that killed 13, pointing to a new report that found the FBI made a mistake by not investigating Army Maj. Nidal Hasan, despite evidence of troubling emails between the Army psychiatrist and a Yemeni terror leader.

"This was a preventable disaster," Bachmann said.

Bachmann and four Republican congressmen asked federal investigators to look into whether State Department officials were trying to influence foreign policy to help Islamic causes.

 Bachmann and the others specifically claimed that Huma Abedin, a top aide to Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, has ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.

Olympics To Allow Saudi Woman To Compete In Modified Slave Gear

LONDON (Reuters) - A female Saudi fighter will take part in the Olympic judo competition after being allowed to wear an Islamic headscarf, or hijab, of a specific design, officials said on Monday.

 Wojdan Ali Seraj Abdulrahim Shaherkani is one of only two Saudi women to travel to London after the International Olympic Committee (IOC) lobbied the conservative Islamic kingdom to end its refusal to send women to the Games.

 But she had said she would only compete if she was allowed to wear the hijab, and judo officials refused, saying it would be dangerous.

A Saudi National Olympic Committee spokeswoman said the committee, the IOC and the International Judo Federation (IJF) had now agreed on an acceptable form for the headscarf.

 "They agreed on a design and she will compete wearing this design," Razan Baker said, adding that she did not know how this design looked. IJF spokesman Nicolas Messner confirmed that Shaherkani would compete, but declined to give further details.

Report: British Pakistani Muslims Join Fight To Overthrow Assad

(NewKerala.Com) --The British government has launched a probe after the revelation that some British Muslims of Pakistani origin have joined extremist groups in Syria to overthrow the regime of President Bashar al Assad.

British journalist John Cantlie and Jeroen Oerlemans, who were captured and held for a week at an extremist training camp in northwestern Syria, revealed the extremists were British with "Birmingham and South London accents", reports the Daily Times.

Cantlie said the militants who detained them included several radical Muslims from Britain who were intent on overthrowing the regime of President Assad.

"Shot in the arm, smashed feet after a botched escape attempt, but safe and sound. Before we were rescued, 30 percent of the extremists who held us were British," Cantlie was quoted, as saying.

Oerlemans said that their captors were militants from Britain, Bangladesh, Pakistan and Chechnya. He said some of the group, described as between 30 and 100 strong, had "Birmingham accents".

Oerlemans said they spoke of being under the leadership of an unidentified "amir".

"They were definitely quite extreme in their religious beliefs. All day we were spoken to about the holy Quran and how they would bring sharia law to Syria. I don't think they were Al-Qaeda, they seemed too amateurish for that," Oerlemans said.

Bill Clinton To Play Central Role At Democrap Convention

Still bigger than Obama
WASHINGTON (NY Slimes) — Former President Bill Clinton is set to play a central part in the Democratic convention, aides said, and will formally place President Obama’s name into nomination by delivering a prime-time speech designed to present a forceful economic argument for why Mr. Obama deserves to win a second term.
The prominent role of Mr. Clinton, which is scheduled to be announced on Monday, signals an effort by the Obama campaign to pull out all the stops to rally Democrats when they gather for their party’s national convention in Charlotte, N.C.

 An even more important audience will be the voters across the country who will see the address carried by television networks.

“There isn’t anybody on the planet who has a greater perspective on not just the last four years, but the last two decades, than Bill Clinton,” David Axelrod, a top strategist to the Obama campaign, said in an interview on Sunday. “He can really articulate the choice that is before people.” 

'Adulterous' Couple Stoned To Death By Sharia Law Enforcers

What century is this?
 BAMAKO, Mali (AP) -- A spokesman for the radical Islamic group controlling northern Mali says a couple who had an adulterous relationship was stoned to death this weekend in the town of Aguelhok.

Sanda Abou Mohamed, a spokesman for the group Ansar Dine, told The Associated Press by telephone on Sunday that the couple was executed according to Shariah law.

 A resident of the northern city of Kidal, who had spoken to witnesses in nearby Aguelhok, said the man and woman were buried up to their necks, then pelted with stones until they died earlier Sunday.

Newsweak Mag Calls Romney 'Wimp'

Who's a wimp?

JERUSALEM (AP) -- Mitt Romney says that if he worried about what reporters thought of him, he wouldn't get much sleep.

He says he's sleeping just fine.

The U.S. presidential candidate tells CBS' "Face the Nation" that he isn't sweating the upcoming Newsweek magazine cover that leads with "Romney: The Wimp Factor."

He says the media tried a similar criticism of President George H.W. Bush. Romney says Bush "was a pretty great president" who was not a wimp.

A 1987 Newsweek profile featured a profile of then-Vice President Bush with the title - "Fighting the `Wimp Factor.'"

Congressperson Nancy Pelosi (D-elusional) Says GOP Jews Are 'Being Exploited. And They’re Smart People'

Nancy Pelosi in an interview on 'Political Capital With Al Hunt' to be broadcast this weekend:

Via  Bloomberg

HUNT: One more foreign policy question, though. He’s going to Israel, and your Republican - the Republican majority in the House, one of your counterparts, Eric Cantor, said Republicans have a golden opportunity with the Jewish vote this year because there’s a, quote, “real cloud over Obama’s chilliness with Israel.”

PELOSI: Well, you know what? That’s maybe his characterization, but that, in fact, this president - and hopefully during this campaign, it will become - this president has been a staunch supporter of Israel. Many of the things that he has done, in terms of Israel’s qualitative edge in terms of how we have - have supported Israel in that regard, for them to defend themselves, A, B, is two issues that relate to Iran. No president has done more -

HUNT: Do you think he’ll do as well with the Jewish vote this time as he did last time?

PELOSI: The election will tell us that.

HUNT: What do you think?

PELOSI: But I - I think that he will. I think that he will, because the fact is when the facts get out. You know, as many of the Republicans are using Israel as an excuse, what they really want are tax cuts for the wealthy. So Israel, that can be one reason they put forth.

HUNT: That’s why some of the Republican Jewish supporters are really active.

PELOSI: Well, that’s how they’re being exploited. And they’re smart people. They follow these issues. But they have to know the facts. And the fact is that President Obama has been the strongest person in terms of sanctions on Iran, which is important to Israel. He’s been the strongest person on whether it’s Iron Dome, David’s Sling, any of these weapons systems and initiatives that relate to Israel. He has been there over and over again.

The CIA Considers Israel It's No. 1 Counterintelligence Threat In Near East Division

Woe to Israel if Obama is re-elected
WASHINGTON (AP) -- The CIA station chief opened the locked box containing the sensitive equipment he used from his home in Tel Aviv, Israel, to communicate with CIA headquarters in Virginia, only to find that someone had tampered with it.

 He sent word to his superiors about the break-in.

The incident, described by three former senior U.S. intelligence officials, might have been dismissed as just another cloak-and-dagger incident in the world of international espionage, except that the same thing had happened to the previous station chief in Israel.

It was a not-so-subtle reminder that, even in a country friendly to the United States, the CIA was itself being watched.

In a separate episode, according to another two former U.S. officials, a CIA officer in Israel came home to find the food in the refrigerator had been rearranged.

In all the cases, the U.S. government believes Israel's security services were responsible.

Such meddling underscores what is widely known but rarely discussed outside intelligence circles: Despite inarguable ties between the U.S. and its closest ally in the Middle East and despite statements from U.S. politicians trumpeting the friendship, U.S. national security officials consider Israel to be, at times, a frustrating ally and a genuine counterintelligence threat.

He claims he will take a break from his busy schedule to visit Israel in his 2nd term.

British NHS Proposes Plan To Organ Harvest Brain Dead Patients

This should have been part of the NHS segment in the London Olympics opening ceremony. Look out liberals! The NHS is coming for your organs!

(The Telegraph) -- Hospitals could be allowed to keep patients with massive brain injuries alive solely to harvest their organs, under controversial plans being floated by the NHS.

The 19 million people on the Organ Donation Register could also be given preference in the event of needing an organ, over those who are not.

These are two of the proposals mooted in a consultation being carried out by NHS Blood and Transplant this summer.

NHSBT is canvassing views from health professionals and the public on these and other ideas in the online survey, which closes on September 21. If put into practice they would represent large-scale changes to the way transplant is undertaken.

The survey asks whether doctors should be able to keep alive patients with catastrophic brain damage, for example due to head injury or stroke, who will not survive, solely for the purpose of organ donation.
Patients approaching death are often put on artificial ventilation for a short period to enable their relatives to say goodbye.

Outrage: London Olympics Has Moment Of Silence For London Bombing Victims But Not Israeli Munich Massacre Victims

 Not surprising given the British Left's hatred of Jews. Joe Stalin would have been happy to see the opening ceremony.

(USA Today) -- In the worst decision of the Opening Ceremony, the International Olympic Committee allowed one moment of silence to be held - just not the one that it should have permitted for the past 40 years.
After saying there would be no moment of silence to honor the 11 Israeli athletes and coaches who were killed at the 1972 Munich Olympics, the IOC permitted a video tribute to the 52 people who were killed in the suicide bombings in the London transit system the day after the city won the Games in 2005.

That was kind, and fitting, but it only served to highlight the extraordinarily bad judgment the IOC has shown in the matter of the Israelis, who were killed simply because they were Olympians living in the Olympic village. 

 As has been the case for 40 years, the IOC recently refused repeated requests from world leaders and families to honor the Israelis, including President Obama, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and leaders of Canada, Australia, Israel and Germany, among others.

Lesbian Claims To Be Victim Of Violent 'Homophobic' Attack

Lesbian Tawana Brawley?

LINCOLN, Neb. - Charlie Rogers told police she was dragged from her bed, tied up and assaulted because she's gay. But now she's speaking out because there are some who doubt the attack ever happened.

Lincoln police are investigating the case as a hate crime.

Rogers, 33, said three attackers painted homophobic slurs on the walls of her home and carved them into her skin.

 The incident from early Sunday is drawing national attention and leading to vigils like one on Thursday in Omaha.

With some people questioning whether the attack was staged, Rogers is going public, saying the doubters are making her a victim all over again.

 In an exclusive interview with KETV NewsWatch 7's Melissa Fry, Rogers talked about her pain and frustration over those who think she made it up.

 "My world has been changed forever," Rogers said. Rogers said she was used to send a message of hate and now, to create a story. "For people to think this doesn't happen here, it does. It did," Rogers said.

Narcissist-In-Chief's Plea To Supporters: 'Upcoming Birthday … Could Be Last One I Celebrate as President’

Via National Review

The latest fundraising e-mail from Team Obama:
Katrina –

My upcoming birthday next week could be the last one I celebrate as President of the United States, but that’s not up to me — it’s up to you.

This July deadline is our most urgent yet, coming after two consecutive months of being significantly outraised by Romney and the Republicans. And if you pitch in $3 or whatever you can before midnight tonight, you and a guest will be automatically entered to join me at my birthday get-together next month:

Thanks. Hope I’ll see you soon.

Judge Says Bearded Fort Hood Jihadist May Be Shaved By Force

FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) -- A judge says the Army psychiatrist charged in the fatal Fort Hood shooting rampage will be forcibly shaved if he doesn't remove his beard on his own.
Off with his head...I mean beard.

Maj. Nidal Hasan appeared in court Wednesday sporting a beard, as he did during a court appearance last month. The beard violates Army regulations.

 Hasan says his beard is an expression of his Muslim faith.

On Wednesday, Col. Gregory Gross found Hasan in contempt of court for keeping the beard and fined him $1,000. 

Fort Hood spokesman Chris Haug says Gross gave Hasan the choice to shave on his own or be forcibly shaved sometime before his court-martial begins Aug. 20.

Napolitano Says Egyptian Terrorist Group Member Given US Entry Was No Threat

The Obama regime welcomed this enemy of America into the White House. Treason reigns supreme at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano says an Egyptian politician given a visa to visit the United States last month was vetted three times and not deemed a security threat.

Napolitano told the House Homeland Security Committee Wednesday that Hani Nour Eldin, a self-professed member of a banned Egyptian militant group, was cleared by the State Department before being granted a visa. 

She says he was vetted by the Homeland Security Department before being allowed into the country, and scrutinized a third time by the Secret Service before he was granted access to the White House.

Burka Clad Women Run New Egyptian TV Channel

All burkas! All the time! The Islamic Spring is on the air!

CAIRO (AP) -- The only visible female face in the Cairo-based studio of a new Islamic TV channel for women is that of a puppet.

The human stars are all veiled from head to toe, with only their eyes showing.

Maria TV is run primarily by women. They operate cameras, present shows and interview female guests ranging from doctors to students of Islamic theology. 

But they cannot show their faces during the broadcasts, and no men are allowed on air during the female programming, not even for phone-ins.

Shrouded in long flowing black robes and scarves known as niqabs, with black gloves to match - the women are distinguishable only by their voices and the slits for their eyes.

The channel, which was launched on Saturday to coincide with the start of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, is the brainchild of Ahmed Abdallah as part of a broader effort to expand his religious pan-Arab satellite station Ummah TV.

Report: Michelle Obama's Aspen Ski Vacation Cost Taxpayers More Than $83,000

Michelle Obama's favorite pastime. Spending taxpayers' money on herself.

ASPEN (Aspen Times) — The Aspen ski vacation that first lady Michelle Obama and her two daughters took in February cost taxpayers $83,182.99, a government watchdog group announced Friday.

Judicial Watch, a Washington, D.C.-based public-interest group that says its mission is to investigate and fight government corruption, obtained records from the U.S. Air Force and the U.S. Secret Service detailing the Obamas' President's Day weekend trip.

 The organization said it garnered the records after filing a lawsuit on May 31 against both government agencies.

The bill for the U.S. Secret Service, including accommodations at the Fasching Haus deluxe condominiums on South Galena Street and the Inn at Aspen on Highway 82, was $48,950.38, according to the watchdog group.

The cost for the flight, per official Department of Defense published hourly rates, was $22,583.70. Food and miscellaneous on-flight items cost $235.44. The cost for rental cars totaled $6,442.23, Judicial Watch said.

Mexico Aiding Illegal Alien Youths To Qualify For Dictator Obama's Deportation Relief Directive

Obama seems determined to win re-election by any means necessary. His treason knows no bounds.

Via  Bay Area News Group

The Mexican Embassy on Monday opened the doors to its San Jose, San Francisco and 48 other consular offices across the United States to undocumented immigrant youths seeking work permits and deportation relief through a new Obama administration directive.

The U.S. government won't begin accepting deportation relief applications until Aug. 15, but the Mexican government will help eligible young people apply by giving them information and ensuring they have the proper documents, said Juan Carlos Lara-Armienta, the Mexican Embassy's head of Latino affairs.

The relief directive from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security could benefit more than 1 million people 30 years old or younger who were brought to the country illegally as children, most of them from Mexico.

The Mexican Embassy partnered with a U.S. immigrant advocacy group, the United We Dream Network, and has been co-hosting community workshops around the Bay Area and country. More than 200 people crowded an Antioch forum on Friday.

Consular officials are making sure those born in Mexico have a Mexican passport that proves who they are to qualify for the relief directive, said Gabriela Márdero, spokeswoman for the Mexican Consulate in San Francisco.

Obama Supporter Hugo Chavez Compares His Election Opponent To Capitalist Elitist Romney

Commie lovers

CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) -- Venezuela's Hugo Chavez has signaled a preference in the U.S. presidential campaign by comparing Mitt Romney to his own challenger.

Chavez, who is up for re-election a month before U.S. President Barack Obama, has in recent weeks expressed a clear preference for the man currently in the White House.

In a campaign speech Saturday night, Chavez equated the agenda of his challenger, Henrique Capriles, with that of Romney, saying both men represent the callously selfish capitalist elite.

Chavez claims Capriles, a moderate former governor, is trying to trick Venezuelans into believing he genuinely cares about the poor, the core of Venezuelan president's constituency.

"I believe the person to best explain the loser's agenda isn't Barack Obama but rather Romney, because it's the extreme right-wing agenda that borders on the fascism of the United States," Chavez told tens of thousands of supporters in the western city of Maracaibo.

"In the end, it's the same project," Chavez said, referring to Obama as "a good guy."

Democratic Convention Will Use Corporate Cash After All

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Shortly after last year's high-profile announcement that the 2012 Democratic National Convention would be the first in history not to rely on special-interest money, organizers in Charlotte quietly set up a nonprofit entity to rake in corporate cash.

Bank of America, Wells Fargo and Duke Energy have all sent checks to New American City Inc., a non-profit entity being run by top officials on the convention host committee. Corporate money is bankrolling operations in direct support of the convention, including paying the salaries of the 41 full-time host committee employees, their health insurance and for the offices where they work.

Corporate money is also paying for parties for Democratic delegates and donors, the media welcome bash and the Labor Day street festival kicking-off the week's events. Corporate supporters will also provide transportation for convention delegates, including buses and a fleet of courtesy cars.

Convention organizers said last week they are keeping true to the self-imposed ban because none of the corporate money will be spent on events inside the sports arena and stadium where President Barack Obama will accept his party's nomination for a second term.

"I guess it comes down to how you define `the convention,'" said Dan Murrey, the executive director of the host committee, Charlotte in 2012. "The distinction we've drawn is that there are official convention activities that are in the program, that are gavel-to-gavel, have minutes, the whole bit. And then there is all the stuff that happens outside of that."

The amounts and sources of the corporate donations to New American City are being kept secret until well after the September convention is over, though a few companies have confirmed they are providing support.

Democrats Call For Gun Control

(The Hill) -- A handful of Democrats are pressing for tougher gun laws in the wake of the Colorado movie theater shootings that left 12 people dead.

Moving such bills has become extraordinarily difficult on Capitol Hill because of powerful gun rights allegiances, however, and Republican strategists predicted the latest gun violence was unlikely to lead to significant changes.

Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (D-N.Y.) — whose husband was killed and son seriously injured in a 1993 shooting on a Long Island commuter train — told reporters on Friday that the National Rifle Association (NRA) and other opponents of gun control have a simple but effective strategy following gun violence tragedies.

“They will wait it out, wait it out, wait it out, until people forget about it again, until another tragedy happens like last night,” said McCarthy. “We should be proactive before another tragedy happens."There are ways of doing this without infringing upon anyone's rights,” she said.

McCarthy and Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J.) have worked closely together on a bill that would tighten restrictions on gun shows, where firearms can be easily bought by people with criminal records in some states.

Lautenberg, who introduced a measure banning high-capacity ammunition magazines following the Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.) shooting, also called for legislative action on the issue.

“We have to face the reality that these types of tragedies will continue to occur unless we do something about our nation’s lax gun laws,” said Lautenberg.

Defense Dept. Allows Active Duty Military To Wear Uniforms In Gay Pride Parade

(Reuters) - The Department of Defense will allow active duty members of all branches of the U.S. military to don their service uniforms while marching in the upcoming San Diego gay pride parade, event organizers said on Thursday.

  Barry approves!

The move, announced the day before the weekend festivities are to begin, comes in the wake of a repeal that went into effect last September of the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" law, under which homosexuals were allowed to serve in the military only if they did not divulge their sexual orientation.

San Diego has a large military presence due to its naval base and the nearby Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton.

"We are hopeful that those who have feared coming to share in the joy of Pride out of concern for losing their military careers will be able to finally celebrate their full and complete selves," San Diego LGBT Pride, the organizer of the event, said in a statement.

Race-Baiting Actor Morgan Freeman Donates $1 Million To Super PAC Supporting Obama

Remember, a mind is a terrible thing to waste
(CNN) -- Actor Morgan Freeman, currently starring in the latest installment of the Batman franchise, donated $1 million last month to the super PAC supporting President Barack Obama, the group's filings with the Federal Election Commission will show on Friday.

In a statement, Freeman listed the accomplishments he said spurred his donation to Priorities USA Action.

"Pres. Obama has done a remarkable job in historically difficult circumstances," Freeman wrote. "He ended combat operations in Iraq, put in place sensible reforms of Wall Street, saved the auto industry and protected the health care of every American. He has led our nation to be more tolerant and placed impressive, accomplished women on the Supreme Court."

The actor said he was "proud to lend my voice - and support - to those who defend him. Priorities USA Action is doing a great job of protecting the values I believe in. I am happy to help them and I hope others will join me."

Other Hollywood names have also donated to the pro-Obama super PAC, who has lagged behind rival groups supporting Republican challenger Mitt Romney in fund-raising. Jeffrey Katzenberg, the chief of DreamWorks, has donated $2 million to Priorities. Steven Spielberg and Bill Maher have also donated to the group.

Napolitano Defends Dictator Obama's Treacherous Amnesty Moves

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano is defending President Barack Obama's decision to stop deporting many illegal immigrants brought to the U.S. as children and let them apply for work permits.

 "Our nation's immigration laws must be enforced in a strong and sensible manner," Napolitano said in prepared remarks submitted to the House Judiciary Committee. "But they are not designed to be blindly enforced without consideration given to the individual circumstances of each case."

 In the remarks, Napolitano described the plan and defended the administration's decision. The secretary was appearing before Congress for the first time since the plan was announced. Obama announced in June that he was easing immigration laws by executive order for many illegal immigrants brought to the country as children.

Under the policy change, illegal immigrants would be eligible to avoid deportation if they can prove they are 30 years old or younger, have been in the United States at least five years, arrived before they turned 16, graduated from a U.S. high school or earned a GED or are currently in school and don't have a criminal record.

 They can also apply for a work permit that will be good for two years, with no limit on how many times it can be renewed. The policy change could affect more than a million illegal immigrants and partially achieves the goals of the so-called DREAM Act, legislation that would provide a pathway to citizenship for many young illegal immigrants.

 Napolitano has said DHS has broad authority to use discretion when deciding which illegal immigrants to deport, and said Thursday that the recent Supreme Court decision striking down much of Arizona's strict immigration law backs up that authority.

"Indeed as the Supreme Court noted in its recent decision on the Arizona immigration law, `a special feature of the removal system is the broad discretion exercised by immigration officials,'" Napolitano said.

Republicans have widely criticized the program, calling it "backdoor amnesty" that circumvents the will of Congress.

Romney Assures Tea Party Supporter His VP Pick Will Be A Conservative

Seeing is believing.

Romney Says It's Time To Vet Obama

Payback's a bitch.
(Town Hall) --  Between yesterday's fantastic speech and this BuzzFeed report, is the Romney campaign finally immersing itself in the 2012 bare-knuckles brawl? Pow:

In speeches from Des Moines to Dallas, Romney has always been careful to hedge his tough digs at Obama with a civil nod toward the president's moral character: "He's a nice guy," the Republican has often said. "He just has no idea how the private economy works."

But Tuesday's speech included no such hedge — and one campaign adviser said there's a reason for that.

"[Romney] has said Obama's a nice fellow, he's just in over his head," the adviser said. "But I think the governor himself believes this latest round of attacks that have impugned his integrity and accused him of being a felon go so far beyond that pale that he's really disappointed. He believes it's time to vet the president. He really hasn't been vetted; McCain didn't do it."

 Indeed, facing what the candidate and his aides believe to be a series of surprisingly ruthless, unfounded, and unfair attacks from the Obama campaign on Romney's finances and business record, the Republican's campaign is now prepared to go eye for an eye in an intense, no-holds-barred act of political reprisal, said two Romney advisers who spoke on condition of anonymity.

In the next chapter of Boston's pushback — which began last week when they began labeling Obama a "liar" — very little will be off-limits, from the president's youthful drug habit, to his ties to disgraced Chicago politicians.

Conservative 'Bane' Creator: "Bane Is An Occupy Wall Street Type. Romney Is More Like Bruce Wayne"

The Liar-In-Chief's propaganda campaign against Romney fails again.

Tampa ( – Chuck Dixon, creator of the ‘Bane’ character featured in the latest “Batman” theatrical release, “Dark Knight Rises”, phoned into the nationally syndicated “Schnitt Show” radio program Tuesday, with his own unique insight into the media’s attempt to pin his villain on Mitt Romney.

In an exlusive interview he pointed out that he and collaborator Graham Nolan created the “Bane” character in 1992, Dixon told Schnitt, “Graham and I are both staunch conservatives, so from our angle, there’s no liberal agenda. I’m a life-long right-wing extremist.”

Obama Plans To Spend $1 Billion For 'Master Teacher Corps'

Teachers union payoff with the taxpayers' money. Will Obama print the money in the White House basement?

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Obama administration unveiled plans Wednesday to create an elite corps of master teachers, a $1 billion effort to boost U.S. students' achievement in science, technology, engineering and math.

The program to reward high-performing teachers with salary stipends is part of a long-term effort by President Barack Obama to encourage education in high-demand areas that hold the key to future economic growth — and to close the achievement gap between American students and their international peers.

Teachers selected for the Master Teacher Corps will be paid an additional $20,000 a year and must commit to participate multiple years.

The goal is to create a multiplier effect in which expert educators share their knowledge and skills with other teachers, improving the quality of education for all students.

Speaking at a rally for his re-election campaign in San Antonio on Tuesday, Obama framed his emphasis on expanded education funding as a point of contrast with Republican challenger Mitt Romney, whom he accused of prioritizing tax cuts for the wealthy over reinvestment in the nation.

"I'm running to make sure that America has the best education system on earth, from pre-K all the way to post-graduate," Obama said. "And that means hiring new teachers, especially in math and science."

The administration will make $100 million available immediately out of an existing fund to incentivize top-performing teachers. Over the longer term, the White House said it plans to launch the program with $1 billion included in Obama's budget request for fiscal year 2013.

But the House and Senate both voted down Obama's budget earlier in the year, making it far from certain that Obama will be able to get congressional approval to spend $1 billion on master teachers.

Narcissist-In-Chief Raffles Off Spots At His 51st Birthday Party

"Welcome to my party, peasant."
(radiocity96.7) --First Lady Michelle Obama has written to supporters offering them a chance to enter the raffle in return for a donation of $3. "We'd like to give grassroots supporters the opportunity to join in the fun," she writes.

 "You guys deserve it and I know Barack would personally love to see you there."

 The "little celebration" for the president's birthday will take place at the family's home in Chicago on August 3.

The Obama campaign has become increasingly concerned that it will be out-spent by rival Mitt Romney ahead of November's presidential election.

 Romney's campaign raised $106m in June compared to the $71m raised by Obama's team. The president's re-election campaign has warned supporters that they risk seeing the election lost unless they up their game

Darth Vader's Son Says 'If You Don't Vote For Barack Obama, You're Insane'

The Mind Force is weak with this one.

(OTRC) -- Mark Hamill says Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is "not actually human" and that people who don't vote to re-elect Barack Obama in the upcoming November election are "insane."

The 60-year-old actor, best known for playing Luke Skywalker in the original "Star Wars" films, made his remarks to at San Diego Comic-Con over the weekend while reminiscing about a show he used to watch as a kid - the Disney-produced 1950s series "Zorro."

 "I knew nothing about Mexican history or anything. But just the idea of a privileged person fighting for the underdog - there's something very romantic about that," Hamill told "I guess it goes back to Robin Hood. People that are fighting for the middle class and for the Have-Nots. It's something that we see even playing out in the presidential race."

 "And if you don't vote for Barack Obama, you're insane," he added. ''Cause without him, I think the middle class will completely disappear. And you look at Romney and I'm sure he's a nice guy, but I think he's like The Thing he only imitates human behavior. He's not actually human himself."

Saudi Wahhabi Fascists Want New Law To Criminalize Insults To Islam

Fight Islamic supremacism
(Reuters) - Saudi Arabia is studying new regulations to criminalise insulting Islam, including in social media, and the law could carry heavy penalties, a Saudi paper said on Sunday.

 The potential regulations come five months after a Saudi blogger and columnist Hamza Kashgari, 23, was arrested for tweeting comments deemed as insulting the Prophet Mohammad. Kashgari said there were things he liked and disliked about him.

 "Within the next two months the Shura Council will reveal the outcome of study on the regulations to combat the criticism of the basic tenets of Islamic sharia," unnamed sources with knowledge of the matter told al-Watan, adding that there could be "severe punishments" for violators.

 Criticism penalised under the law would include that of the Prophet, early Muslim figures and clerics, it said.

"The (regulations) are important at the present time because violations over social networks on the Internet have been observed in the past months," the sources said.

 Saudi Arabia follows a strict version of Sunni Islamic law, referred to as Wahhabism.
  Blasphemy can be punishable by death.

Nobel Peace Prize Winner Admits He Failed To Advance Middle East Peace

When asked to point out something he has failed to accomplish, U.S. President Barack Obama chose the task for which he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize near the start of his term – achieving Middle East peace.

ABC/WJLA's Scott Thuman had asked the president to talk about his "first few years" in office. "Is there anything you believe you failed at," Thuman wanted to know, "not because Congress wouldn't play ball, but that rests squarely on your shoulders that has you desperate to get that second term to atone for?"

Obama's initial response referred to the failure to achieve comprehensive immigration reform, but Thuman noted that this was a "Congressional" matter.

"What about you?", he asked. "Is there something on your list?"

Obama answered: "Well, you know... the truth is that the things I can do, um, without Congress tend to be in the foreign policy area. And, you know, in that area I have not been able to move the peace process forward in the Middle East the way I wanted. It's something we focused on very early. But the truth of the matter is, that the parties, they've got to want it as well."

Egyptian Protesters Throw Tomatoes And Shoes At Hillary Clinton's Motorcade

Welcome to Egypt, Madame Cankles!

 ALEXANDRIA, Egypt (Reuters) - Protesters threw tomatoes and shoes at U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's motorcade on Sunday during her first visit to Egypt since the election of Islamist President Mohamed Mursi.

 A tomato struck an Egyptian official in the face, and shoes and a water bottle landed near the armored cars carrying Clinton's delegation in the port city of Alexandria after she gave a speech on democratic rights.

 A senior U.S. official said neither Clinton nor her vehicle, which was around the corner from the incident, were hit by the projectiles, which were thrown as U.S. officials and reporters walked to the motorcade after her speech.

Protesters chanted "Monica, Monica," a reference to the extra-marital affair conducted by Clinton's husband, former President Bill Clinton, while in the White House.

Others earlier chanted "leave, Clinton" an Egyptian security official said.

 It was not clear who the protesters were or what were their political affiliations.

Demonstrations have become common in Egypt since former President Hosni Mubarak, long-time U.S. ally, was brought down by mass street protests last year.

Democrap Thug Rahm Emanuel Tells Romney To ‘Stop Whining’

(ABC News) -- Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel said this morning on “This Week” that presumptive GOP nominee for president Mitt Romney should “stop whining” about attacks on his Bain record and just defend himself.

“What are you going to do when the Chinese leader says something to you or Putin says something to you?” said Emanuel.

”I give him his own advice.  ’Stop whining.’  Defend — if you want to claim Bain Capital as your calling card to the White House, then defend what happened to Bain Capital,” said Emanuel.

Emanuel, former chief of staff to President Obama, was defending Obama deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter for suggesting that Romney might have committed a felony for claiming in his presidential financial disclosure form that he did not have an active role at Bain after February 11, 1999 while he maintained formal titles and signed SEC documents after he claimed to have left Bain.

“He said ‘CEO, sole shareholder, president.’  You can’t — as president of the United States you can’t have a sign on your desk that says, gone fishing.’ You can’t put that on that desk.  It’s basically the buck stops there,” said Emanuel. “You can’t say to the SEC, ‘I was the CEO, chairman and president, but I’m not responsible.  I’m not accountable."

Red Doper Baby-In-Chief: Washington 'Feels As Broken As It Did Four Years Ago'

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama says Washington "feels as broken as it did four years ago," when he took office.

 He says he's most frustrated by the inability "to change the atmosphere" in the nation's capital "to reflect the decency and common sense of ordinary people" who want their leaders to solve problems.

"There's enough blame to go around for that," he told CBS' "Sunday Morning."

 CBS' Charlie Rose interviewed the president and first lady Michelle Obama at the White House on Thursday and has aired parts of the conversation on different network shows since then.

 Reflecting on more than 3 ½ years in office, Obama said, "I think there's no doubt that I underestimated the degree to which in this town politics trump problem solving."
