  1. This is the full clip from Trump's recent Phoenix speech. The Republican party is pretty good at throwing up some real fruitcakes, remember Sarah Palin? But Trump comes across as savvy. He's taken a hit for his anti-immigration/anti-Mexican stance, so he brings up an African-American dude whose lost a son to an illegal immigrant criminal. Neat. He's against Obamacare but he leavens that by emphasising that they need to help everyone, even if it angers Republicans. What I can't understand is that if he's candidature fails what will be the knock-on effect on his businesses, because he'll have upset a lot of businesspeople along the way. He pulls no punches with Macy's.

  9. Ted Cruz: Police need to 'patrol and secure' Muslim neighborhoods (CNN)Ted Cruz on Tuesday called for law enforcement to step up their policing of Muslim neighborhoods in the U.S. in the wake of terrorist attacks in Brussels, comparing it to police boosting their presence in areas with known gang activity. "If you have a neighborhood where there's a high level of gang activity, the way to prevent it is you increase the law enforcement presence there and you target the gang members to get them off the streets," the Texas senator told CNN's Anderson Cooper. "I'm talking about any area where there is a higher incidence of radical Islamic terrorism." Cruz also pointed to what he called the "successful program" in New York implemented by New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, apparently pointing to the New York Police Department's controversial surveillance efforts targeting Muslims under his administration. J. Peter Donald, communications for the New York Police Department, described Cruz's comments as an "incendiary, foolish statement." "Hey, @tedcruz are our nearly 1k Muslim officers a "threat" too? It's hard to imagine a more incendiary, foolish statement," he tweeted, the night before Cruz is expected to host a rally in New York City. Earlier in the day Cruz said in a statement, "We need to empower law enforcement to patrol and secure Muslim neighborhoods before they become radicalized," adding that the U.S. can no longer afford to "political correctness." "For years, the West has tried to deny this enemy exists out of a combination of political correctness and fear. We can no longer afford either. Our European allies are now seeing what comes of a toxic mix of migrants who have been infiltrated by terrorists and isolated, radical Muslim neighborhoods," Cruz said in the statement. Donald Trump said later Tuesday on CNN that he agreed with Cruz's proposal to target Muslim neighborhoods, calling it "a good idea." Cruz's comments are not the first time the Republican presidential candidate has called for policies that would single out Muslims. The Texas senator argued in November that the U.S. should shut its doors to Muslim refugees from Syria, only allowing Christian refugees to seek asylum in the U.S. Cruz's call drew a swift rebuke from GOP presidential rival Ohio Gov. John Kasich, Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz and the Anti-Defamation League, a leading anti-bigotry organization. "We are not at war with Islam, we are at war with radical Islam," Kasich said during a news conference. "Just because you happen to be a Muslim does not mean you want to destroy someone in the West.... The last thing we need is more polarization because for those who want to preserve Islam in the west, we alienate them." Still, Kasich argued the U.S. has been "too lax and not aggressive enough" in its response to terrorism. Wasserman Schultz was blunter. "Ted Cruz is a disgrace," the Florida congresswoman said, adding that the freshman senator's statement amounted to "fear-mongering." "His comments today were worse than opportunistic and inappropriate politicking in the wake of the terrible tragedy in Brussels -- they were a shameful display of hate that only serves to foment anger and make the world less secure," Wasserman Schultz said in a statement. Cruz campaign spokeswoman Alice Stewart said that a stepped-up police presence in Muslim neighborhoods "will both identify problem spots and partner with non-radical Americans who want to protect their homes." And she reiterated that the U.S. cannot allow "political correctness to drive decisions about our security" and warned that a failure to act would result in problems of radicalization that authorities are dealing with in some Muslim neighborhoods in Europe. "Innocent, peaceful Americans, no matter their faith, deserve to live in safe neighborhoods; that is what law enforcement exists to do, and that includes preventing radical Islamic terror cells from taking root in them. The police should have every tool available to follow leads and take action against those who would do us harm," she said in an email. The Anti-Defamation League condemned Cruz's proposal in a statement Tuesday that said "demonizing all Muslims is a misguided and counterproductive response to the terrorist threat. "Ordering special patrols of Muslim neighborhoods will almost certainly create an adversarial relationship between law enforcement and the communities they have sworn to protect, making those communities more vulnerable, more frightened, and often less willing to help. The approach is contrary to the principles of individual rights, equality, justice, and religious freedom on which this nation was founded," ADL CEO Jonathan Greenblatt said in the statement. While Kasich and Cruz have both called for stops on resettling Syrian refugees in the U.S., neither have gone as far as Republican front-runner Trump who has called for banning all foreign Muslims from entering the U.S. Cruz has said he disagrees with Trump's proposal, but also said he "understands" why the real estate mogul called for the ban.

  12. 'Provoke at your peril': The Obama administration is sending a 'message' to Saudi Arabia But this rhetoric, Badran said, only adds fuel to Iran's argument that the execution of al-Nimr "was a deliberate provocation" against Iran and its Shiite allies — which, in turn, implies that Iran is a legitimate representative of the region's Shiite Muslims. "The White House is therefore sending a new message to Saudi Arabia," Badran added. "'Provoke at your peril.'" That message, Badran said, is sent in conjunction with the Obama administration's vision for a new Middle East order — one in which Iran plays a central, if not leading, role. That vision, Badran believes, stems from Obama's desire to preserve a nuclear deal that will be the cornerstone of his foreign-policy legacy. "Attacks on Saudi diplomats are attacks on the US order in the Middle East," Badran said, referring to Saudi Arabia's long-time status as a major US ally. "By not stepping up to defend that order, the US has essentially given Iran permission to try and tear it down." Aaron David Miller, a former Middle East negotiator who is a vice president at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, echoed this sentiment in an interview with Bloomberg View. "The Iranians hold the Obama legacy in their hands," said Miller, who worked in the State Department for more than two decades. "We are constrained and we are acquiescing to a certain degree to ensure we maintain a functional relationship with the Iranians." Other analysts have suggested that Iran's rising influence in the region led an increasingly isolated Saudi Arabia to push back against Iran and its allies, partly explaining the decision to execute al-Nimr. "The key source of Saudi anxiety is Iran," the political-risk firm Eurasia Group noted in its 2016 analysis of the top risks to the world. "Soon to be free of sanctions, Iran's economy will strengthen, and its government will have more money to spend in support of regional clients." But Badran said the US maintaining that functional relationship is key to the success of what he termed as the administration's "misguided approach to Syria," which aims to minimize US involvement in the conflict while recognizing Iran as a legitimate stakeholder in the country's future. That policy was articulated most clearly in November when Russian officials, with the US's blessing, invited Iran to Vienna to participate in peace talks over Syria for the first time since the war erupted in 2011. The invitation was "in line with Obama's long-held perception of Syria as an Iranian sphere of influence, and his desire to legitimize Iran as a regional interlocutor of the US," Badran said at the time. "Indeed, that was the whole point of the Iran deal — to establish a broader regional partnership with the Iranians." Last week, an abrupt about-face from the administration also contributed to this perception. It originally informed Congress that it would sanction Iran for violating a UN resolution and testing ballistic missiles at least twice in 2015. But it quickly backed away from those sanctions, indicating that it will take a lot — much more than a spat between Saudi Arabia and Iran — to derail a new relationship nearly eight years in the making. Especially since, as Brookings' executive vice president told The New York Times on Monday: "We haven’t been on the same page with the Saudis for a long time." http://news.yahoo.com/provoke-peril-obama-administration-sending-212012154.html?nf=1

  14. (bismillah) An international lawyer says the recent disclosures that the US is directly enabling Israel’s military assaults on Gaza vividly proves Washington’s complicity in every war crime committed by Tel Aviv. Barry Grossman made the remarks in a phone interview commenting on recent reports that showed the US National Security Agency is sharing intelligence on “Palestinian targets” with Israeli spy services. “These disclosures not only expose the US to culpability in the spate of war crimes currently being perpetrated once again by Israel, but also give lie to President Obama’s public pose which implies that the events taking place in Gaza somehow are the inevitable result of factors entirely out the Unites States’ control,” Grossman told Press TV. “Indeed, I take the view that for all intents and purposes, the US security apparatus has been largely hijacked by rogue elements or, if you prefer, a 5th column within its agencies, and that these elements operate to advance agendas which are often at odds with any claim that their primary loyalties are to the United States,” he added. Israel has been pounding the besieged Gaza Strip for 28 consecutive days. At least 1,865 Palestinians have been killed during offensive including over 400 children. The attacks have also left over 9,400 people injured. Documents provided by whistleblower Edward Snowden and published recently by The Intercept show the NSA “maintains a far-reaching technical and analytic relationship with the Israeli SIGINT National Unit (ISNU) sharing information on access, intercept, targeting, language, analysis and reporting.” According to Glenn Greenwald, editor of The Intercept and confidante of Snowden, the “documents illustrate a crucial fact: Israeli aggression would be impossible without the constant, lavish support and protection of the U.S. government.” Grossman says Israel’s control over the US intelligence apparatus is nothing new but many American officials have long feared that criticizing Israel’s operations in the US would be “career suicide.” “The cozy relationship between the Israeli and US intelligence services has been an open secret for a long time, with many insiders complaining that any criticism or investigation of actions by Israeli operatives in the US, even those which might be considered criminal, is career suicide,” he said. “Sadly, it comes as no surprise that we are now learning this cozy relationship has developed to the point of unrestricted ‘data sharing’ which involves the NSA actually providing information to Israel, even during a belligerent military offensive,” Grossman added. “Based on what we now know,” the analyst noted, “It must be assumed that Israel has essentially unlimited access to all the facilities and data available to the 16 agencies comprising the US security apparatus, not to mention the work product of their international partners in the global intelligence and ‘eavesdropping’ apparatus.” “The implications are enormous and exceed even the worst nightmares of George Orwell,” he said. http://presstv.com/detail/2014/08/04/374036/us-key-party-to-israel-war-crimes/

  16. From the beginning the United States has been directly behind the unrest in Syria. In fact, America's involvement in destabilizing Syria began years before the admittedly US-engineered Arab Spring (2) even unfolded in a premeditated plot to upturn the entire Arab World and reorder it according to their own corporate-financier and hegemonic geopolitical interests. In a 2007 speech given to the Commonwealth Club of California (3), US Army General Wesley Clark would state that in 1991, then Undersecretary of Defense for Policy Paul Wolfowitz said the US had 5-10 years to clean up the old Soviet "client regimes" before the next super power rose up and challenged western hegemony. Clark claimed that this, along with the aftermath of 9/11 constituted a policy coup where Richard Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Paul Wolfowitz, and the other members of the of Project for a New American Century had hijacked US foreign policy to destabilize and turn the nations of the Middle East upside down - much the way they are now. Clark would go on to say that shortly after September 11, 2001, while at the Pentagon, a document handed down from the Office of the Secretary of Defense indicated plans to attack and destroy the governments of 7 countries; Iraq, Syria, Sudan, Somalia, Iran, Lebanon and Libya. Clearly the United States has already "attacked and destroyed" Iraq, which in 2003 was invaded and subsequently occupied for nearly a decade at the cost of nearly a million lives including over 4,400 US soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines, and trillions of dollars of taxpayer money. Likewise Libya was destabilized and invaded by proxy through a combination of US-led NATO forces and US State Department listed terrorist organizations including the (Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (listed #27) lead by Abdul Hakim Belhaj.
  17. Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei says Muslim nations must not trust the US and Zionists, because they are not concerned about Muslim interests. Addressing the Muslim nations of the region in the second sermon of the Friday Prayers in Tehran, Ayatollah Khamenei said as a result of the Islamic Awakening in the Middle East and North Africa the people's voice has been heard for the first time and all revolutionary countries have voted in favor of Muslim figures while rejecting Zionism and dictators. The Leader said even young intellectuals demonstrating in Washington, London, Madrid and Athens were inspired by what happened in Egypt's Liberation Square. Ayatollah Khamenei added that Arab nations can no longer put up with dictators, tyrants or Western agents and spies. “They are fed-up with suffering, inequality and backwardness…while [at the same time] reject extremism and sectarian violence.” Ayatollah Khamenei said subservience to the West, dealings with the Zionists, and betraying the Palestinian cause were the shared characteristics of the Arab regimes which were overthrown in the course of the Islamic Awakening. The Leader warned revolutionary Muslim nations against Western and Zionist plots to derail regional revolutions by portraying Muslims as violent people incapable of achieving development and becoming independent. The Leader said Egyptians want an Islamic and developed country which supports the Palestinian cause and not a country which is committed to the Camp David Accord and an ally of the US and Israel. Ayatollah Khamenei advised Arabs against trust the US and NATO because they are not concerned about Muslim interests, urging nation to “not be afraid of them (the US and NATO) because they are becoming weaker and weaker.” Ayatollah Khamenei said Iran has only been accused of terrorism because it refuses to abandon the people of Palestine, Lebanon and Iraq, stressing that if Iran was not concerned about the plight of Muslims it would not have been charged with terrorism. The Leader predicted Western attempts to derail regional revolutions and promised Israel will cease to exist.
  18. According to Google, Members of Congress are trying to go after pirates and counterfeiters but SOPA and PIPA are the wrong way to do it. 1. SOPA and PIPA would censor the Web The U.S. government could order the blocking of sites using methods similar to those employed by China. Among other things, search engines could be forced to delete entire websites from their search results. That’s why 41 human rights organizations and 110 prominent law professors have expressed grave concerns about the bills. 2. SOPA and PIPA would be job-killers because they would create a new era of uncertainty for American business Law-abiding U.S. internet companies would have to monitor everything users link to or upload or face the risk of time-consuming litigation. That’s why AOL, EBay, Facebook, Google, LinkedIn, Mozilla, Twitter, Yahoo and Zynga wrote a letter to Congress saying these bills "pose a serious risk to our industry’s continued track record of innovation and job-creation.” It’s also why 55 of America’s most successful venture capitalists expressed concern that PIPA "would stifle investment in Internet services, throttle innovation, and hurt American competitiveness”. More than 204 entrepreneurs told Congress that PIPA and SOPA would "hurt economic growth and chill innovation”. 3. SOPA and PIPA wouldn’t stop piracy To make matters worse, SOPA and PIPA won’t even work. The censorship regulations written into these bills won’t shut down pirate sites. These sites will just change their addresses and continue their criminal activities, while law-abiding companies will suffer high penalties for breaches they can’t possibly control. An info-graph also explain the whole matter:
