Dick Cheney Is Still Right — Obama’s return to Iraq reveals how wrong he has been about the world

Editorial

President Obama will lay out his plan to counter the Islamic State on Wednesday night, and we’ll judge the strategy on its merits. But the mere fact that Mr. Obama feels obliged to send Americans to fight again in Iraq acknowledges the failure of his foreign policy. He is tacitly admitting that the liberal critique of the Bush Administration’s approach to Islamic terrorism was wrong.

Recall that Mr. Obama won the Presidency by arguing that the U.S. had alienated the world and Muslims by recklessly using force abroad. We had betrayed our values by interrogating terrorists too harshly and wiretapping too much. Our enemies hated us not because they hated our values or our influence but because we had provoked them with our interventions.

If we withdrew from the Middle East, especially from Iraq; if we avoided new entanglements, such as in Syria; and if…

Most Corrupt Justice Department In U.S. History Stonewalling Internal Investigators

Originally posted on The Daley Gator:



The head investigator charged with overseeing the Department of Justice that various government agencies have repeatedly stymied his investigation efforts, and have done so in direct violation of federal law.

Michael E. Horowitz, Inspector General of the Department of Justice, was testifying before the House Judiciary Committee hearing on investigative access to government information.

“Since 2010 and 2011,” he said. “The FBI and some other Department components have not read Section 6 (a) of the IG Act as giving my Office access to all records in their possession and therefore have refused our requests for various types of Department records. As a result, a number of our reviews have been significantly impeded.”

“It’s deeply troubling that Department of Justice leadership has stonewalled the Inspector General’s investigations several times and only produced requested documents after officials concluded that it would help them,” , the committee’s chairman. “The Inspector General’s activities should…

Schools to force children into ‘Meatless Monday’ activism to save the planet

American Patriot:

What are we saving the planet from? Too much excrement? Animals are bred to feed us. We don’t have a shortage of cows. They aren’t producing any more flatulence than they did 10 years ago, and technically if you follow the news and markets you will know there are fewer COWS anyway already. Not eating meat won’t be anything more than a second religion… hell most don’t eat meat on Friday as it is.

Can swearing off meat one day a week really save the planet? Some think so, and now, schools across the country are forcing children to participate in “Meatless Mondayactivism to do just that, the Daily Caller reported Tuesday.

According to the Meatless Monday website, schools from Virginia to San Diego have implemented the program. Activists say the idea of giving up meat one day a week dates back to World War I, but the reason was much different. Instead of trying to save the planet as activists claim today, the intent was to help the war effort. Today, activists say it’s “fantastic for the planet.”

Even smaller school districts like that in Dripping Springs, Texas, are jumping on the bandwagon, Eric Owens said. According to Owens, the lunch menu at Rooster Springs Elementary School included meatless chili, meatless pizza, meatless burritos, some nachos “and more.”

(Reuters/Sergei Karpukhin)‘If the West bombs Islamic State militants in Syria without consulting Damascus, the anti-ISIS alliance may use the occasion to launch airstrikes against President Bashar Assad’s forces, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said.

There are reasons to suspect that air strikes on Syrian territory may target not only areas controlled by Islamic State militants, but the government troops may also be attacked on the quiet to weaken the positions of Bashar Assad’s army,” Lavrov said Tuesday.’

Missile can travel 5,000 miles

(Reuters) – Russia carried out a successful test of its new Bulava intercontinental nuclear missile on Wednesday and will perform two more test launches in October and November, the head of its naval forces said.

The armed forces have boosted their military training and test drills since the start of the conflict in eastern Ukraine, which Russia considers in its traditional sphere of influence.

The 12-meter long Bulava, or mace, has undergone numerous tests, some successful, and can deliver an impact of up to 100 times the atomic blast that devastated Hiroshima in 1945.

Naval Commander-in-Chief Admiral Viktor Chirkov said the test launch had been carried out from the White Sea and that the test missile had hit its target in Russia’s far east.

“In October and November of this year, the naval fleet will carry out two more launches with two rocket cruisers equipped…

Assad government to consider any military action an act of war

by PAUL JOSEPH WATSON | SEPTEMBER 10, 2014

President Barack Obama is set to ignore Congress once again by launching military strikes inside Syria without consulting lawmakers, a move that threatens to enflame the entire region given that the Assad government has repeatedly insisted it will consider any military activity inside Syrian territory as an act of war.

“President Obama is prepared to use U.S. military airstrikes in Syria as part of an expanded campaign to defeat the Islamic State and does not believe he needs formal congressional approval to take that action, according to people who have spoken with the president in recent days,”reports the Washington Post.

Obama is set to deliver a prime time speech tonight during which he will make the case for U.S. air strikes inside Syria in the name of targeting ISIS militants.
