Outrage and criticism are growing across the political spectrum after Obama, contradicting his repeated past pledges not to put U.S. troops in Syria, decided without congressional or constitutional authority to deploy some 50 Special Forces operatives to aid Syrian jihadists. At least one U.S. soldier has already been killed, dying last month in what Obama officials claimed was a raid to free prisoners held by the Islamic State (ISIS). More deaths are likely, as are more troop deployments, potentially setting up a broader war in which the United States could become further ensnared in Syria and beyond. Thanks in large part to the administration's deceit and machinations in recent years, the whole region is likely to end up in flames — a kind of post-Obama Libya on a much larger scale. And Obama's Republican and Democrat enablers in Congress, despite voicing some complaints and concerns, have done practically nothing to stop it.
In a new propaganda talk presented in classrooms across America, Obama's Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) boss Gina McCarthy urged school children to become part of the “climate solution,” take a government “pledge,” and even “bug” their families to jump on the Obama administration's deeply controversial “green” bandwagon.
Apparently the science surrounding alleged anthropogenic (man-made) global warming (AGW) is not really so settled after all. In a barely noticed statement released last week, NASA dropped the equivalent of a nuclear bomb on the United Nations climate-alarmism machine, noting that ice across Antarctica has been growing at break-neck speed for decades. The surging ice growth, of course, directly contradicts the predictions of global-warming alarmists, including a 2013 report by the increasingly discredited UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change claiming, falsely as it turns out, that Antarctica was losing ice and causing rising sea levels.
While most of the press has focused on Obama's military machinations in Afghanistan, Syria, and Iraq, the administration has also been quietly expanding its secret wars and assassination programs across Africa.
Quick, do something! There are John Birch Society types ready to spread “conspiracy theories” from the “margins” into the “mainstream,” and they seem to be hiding under practically every bed in America! At least that's the impression given in a new “intelligence report” by the far-left Southern Poverty Law Center, an organization whose slanderous vitriol against conservatives may have sparked a recent federal terrorism case. In its report the SPLC reputedly aims to expose false conspiracy theories that are being churned out by right-wing radicals. But, ironically, while expressing outrage over “conspiracy theories” on the “right,” the SPLC report sounded like an expanded version of Hillary Clinton's bizarre conspiracy theory about a “vast right-wing conspiracy.” To hear the SPLC tell it, practically everyone in America to the right of Obama is participating in a giant conspiracy to spread conspiracy theories. For what purpose is never explained, although apparently it is all very bad for “democracy.”
ALMERIA, Spain — As humanity increasingly loses faith in debt-backed fiat currencies run by opaque central banks and corrupt governments, the city of Barcelona, Spain, is the latest to announce plans to try something new — a local currency. The goal of the proposed alternative monetary system, according to local officials, is to stimulate business in the city and surrounding areas, especially local small and medium businesses still reeling from the economic crisis that ravaged the nation in recent years. With over three million people in Barcelona, it could become the largest experiment of its kind, according to analysts. But not everybody is convinced, with some commentators suspecting ulterior motives.
Former United Kingdom Prime Minister Tony Blair apologized for “mistakes” surrounding the Iraq war, and admitted that the controversial regime-change operation helped spawn the rise of the savage Islamic State (ISIS).
The United Nations, often ridiculed as the “dictators club” by critics, is actually the “Parliament of Humanity” and “a beacon for all humanity,” declared UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon in statements celebrating UN Day on the 70th anniversary of the global outfit's founding. In a bizarre speech given in New York City amid the controversial celebrations, the UN boss even went perilously close to deifying the scandal-plagued organization he leads, claiming it brings hope, peace, security, and sustenance to the world. He also said humanity has a duty to unite behind the UN and its blue flag. The dangerous implications of turning the dictator-dominated UN into a global parliament, though, were left unaddressed.
In her latest round of testimony on the Benghazi attack that left four Americans dead, Hillary Clinton, secretary of state at the time of the attack, was exposed as a liar. But she was careful to avoid any “serious” scrutiny of the 800-pound gorilla in the room: the Obama administration's widely reported gun-running programs for jihadists battling former U.S. government terror-war allies in Libya and Syria. When questioned, Clinton denied any knowledge of such a program, only to be confronted with an e-mail in which she proposed doing precisely that via proxies. Indeed, the fact that Obama has been arming jihadists in Syria is today beyond dispute.
With the electoral defeat this week of conservative Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper and his more liberty-oriented party, tax-funded global-warming theorists and the governments that support them breathed a sigh of relief. Now, with Harper and his recently ousted Australian counterpart out of the way, analysts say the United Nations and its mostly autocratic members have a better chance of success.
