    Well, Hillary has declared our U.S. Troops will aid her alley Turkey attack Syria on the ground.

    This all began with a tiny tiny mishap on the border and Turkey taking advantage to declare war against Syria and U.S. aiding.

    Obama and Hillary know they can’t get away with lying we were not droning in U.S. and soon Hillary won’t have to lie the U.S. has taken no lethal action as of yet.

      Yet the U.S. bomb the heck out of Libya for killing American’s is unthinkable. It’s surreal as the liberals say nothing, and will twist this in history.

      You think History books have history wrong? Now History and Government is taught with current events a clips of MSNBC and the NewYorkTimes.

      And the New York Times is one of many media sources getting paid by U.S. public schools across the nation.

    Two different versions of the drone Israel just shot down

    Reuters: Israeli air force shoots down drone aircraft

    Oct 6 2012

    JERUSALEM (Reuters) – The Israeli air force shot down a drone after it crossed into southern Israel on Saturday, the military said, but it remained unclear where the aircraft had come from.

    It was kept under surveillance and followed by Israeli air force jets before it was shot down above a forest in an unpopulated area near the border with the occupied West Bank.

    Leibovich said it was shot down at about 10 a.m. (0700 GMT), after it travelled east some 35 miles across Israel’s southern Negev desert.

    Soldiers, assisted by helicopters, were searching the area for the remains of the drone, which security sources said most likely did not originate from the Gaza Strip.

    Israeli parliament member Miri Regev, a former chief spokesman of the military, wrote on Twitter it was an “Iranian drone launched by Hezbollah”, referring to the Lebanese Shi’ite group that fought a war with Israel in 2006.

    On at least one occasion, Iranian-backed Hezbollah has launched a drone into Israel. And in 2010, an Israeli warplane shot down an apparently unmanned balloon in the Negev near the country’s Dimona nuclear reactor.

    The Jerusalem Post: IAF shoots down UAV in northern Negev

    By Yaakov Lappinlast 10/06/2012

    The IAF shot down a small unmanned aerial vehicle as it flew over southern Israel on Saturday morning, in one of the most flagrant violations of the nation’s airspace in years.

    F-16I fighter jets were scrambled from the Ramon Air Base in the Negev immediately after the UAV was sighted. The pilots received instructions to trail it for a while before being told to blow it out of the sky for safety reasons.

    The IDF did not officially say where the UAV took off.

    It entered Israeli airspace via the Gaza Strip, but the army denied Palestinian reports saying it had taken off there.

    The most likely route involved a takeoff somewhere in Lebanon and a flight out over the Mediterranean Sea before a bank south toward Israel.

    Meanwhile Hillary’s allie Turkey is suing Israel for stopping their ship from sailing in Israel waters

    JPost: ‘Families of Marmara flotilla victims sue Israel’

    10/06/2012 Turkish daily reports 33 relatives of 9 Turkish activists killed in 2010 IDF raid file for $5 mil. compensation lawsuit against Israel.

    According to the report, the families of Furkan Dogan, Cevdet Kiliçlar and Necdet Yildirim, who were killed during the Israel Navy’s interception of the flotilla, are suing Israel seeking moral and financial compensation that mounts to 10 million Turkish liras, or $5m.

    Thirty other persons who were injured in the interception are also filing for compensation, the families’ attorney, Ugur Yildirim allegedly told Hurriyet.

    In May, a Turkish court pressed formal charges against top IDF officers suspected of involvement in the killings aboard the Mavi Marmara.

    The IDF Military Advocate- General’s Office established a joint team with the Justice Ministry to study the UN-commissioned Palmer Report, released in September 2011, which justified Israel’s decision to impose a sea blockade on the Gaza Strip, but also criticized the navy’s operation to stop the Gaza-bound flotilla.

    However, Turkey rejected the report’s findings, saying Israel had no right to raid the ship in international waters and said it would never recognize the blockade’s legitimacy.

    Meanwhile, the navy is preparing to intercept the latest Gaza-bound ship carrying European pro-Palestinian activists seeking to break the security naval blockade around the Strip.

    Israel will not allow the vessel to reach Gaza, a Foreign Ministry spokeswoman said Tuesday after the organizers of the “flotilla” issued a communiqué saying they received clearance in La Spezia, Italy, to set sail and will reach Gaza in some two weeks.

    Herb Keinon, Ilene Prusher and Yaakov Lappin contributed to this report.

    It’s not the best timing to messing with Israel who is feeling very isolated as Obama officially blew off Iran as being a danger to Israel. Israel should just fire shots and sink the boat instead of boarding it and getting their own soldiers beat and clubbed.

    Snoop Dog Hates on Mitt

    The liberals are totally out of ideas. Now it’s just whining, excuse-making and name-calling.
    Mental retardation is probably the closest I can come to making any sense of the contradictory, hypocritical scribblings that are not even of jr. high school quality.

    But, Professor Cheekbones, a Harvard law professor, hardly makes much more sense in her bizarre rantings either.

  6. canary says:

    They are still trying to get ballots to U.S. Military. And officer said last year only 5.8% ballots got to our U.S. military overseas. This is an ongoing problem. There is a group trying to find away for our U.S. Soldiers fighting in combat to vote using the internet.

    Also, lot’s of crooked illegal things still going on in voting in Florida.

    CNN did a story on how our vets aren’t getting help from the VA. I did read the answers of both Obama and Romney and the DAV said that computerizing Obama said would bring better service has failed, and there is no end in site to the stack of claims not being processed. Nice for CNN to do a story.

    Sorry, for the news articles on this page. When I click on news selected by readers it takes me to the hive.

    A Green Beret that was stationed at the U.S. Embassy in Libya until late August is going to testify at hearings that it was a dangerous hotbed, and he could not believe they pulled them out in August under such threatening conditions.

    What was Obama thinking? Cut defense when the world is on fire and at war. It’s intentional. Obama wants a major catastrophe so he can declare Marshall Law and halt the elections. He’s ignoring Israel.

    Suspense mounts ahead of Nobel Prize announcements

    Although the peace prize committee never discloses the nominees’ names, former US president Bill Clinton, ex-German chancellor Helmut Kohl, the EU and WikiLeaks suspect Bradley Manning are known to be on the list.

    AH-HA! You knew it, and I knew it! Clinton is the NEXT LIBERAL UP. As some of you may remember, my two universal truths of life:
    1. Chelsea is being conditioned for a Senate run in a friendly district.
    2. Bill WILL win the Nobel Prize. Gore and Obama won for gosh sakes!
    2.5. Hillary will come out of the closet when it isn’t a personal liability to her.

    “Green Job” update from the Denver Post:

    Vestas cuts 75 workers at its Brighton wind turbine blade factory

    By Mark Jaffe

    Vestas Wind Systems, the wind turbine manufacturer that built four factories in Colorado, announced its third round of job cuts on Tuesday, firing 75 workers at its blade factory in Brighton.

    Vestas had already cut 30 jobs in Brighton and 90 at its tower factory in Pueblo. The job cuts are being forced by the prospect of the federal wind production tax credit expiring in December. The credit has been a key ingredient in financing turbines.

    Congress has been deadlocked over extending the tax credit.

    This has led to a significant reduction in turbine orders for 2013, and the market slowdown is affecting Vestas’ manufacturing facilities in Colorado,” said Andrew Longeteig, a Vestas spokesman, in a statement. …


    This is a fun one, as Obama is running ads blaming these cuts on Republicans (and by extension Romney, somehow) yet they miss the bigger picture – that higher taxes does mean fewer jobs.

  10. canary says:

    I am confused about the latest report there was only one security personal guarding the U.S. Embassy in Libya the night the Islamic terrorists attack and murdered Americans.

    Is that the security guard that acting strange and taking pictures that prompted the U.S. Diplomat to tell his friends via internet he thought he might die that night because there wasn’t enough security.

    Can’t you just see that guy taking pictures every few seconds passing them on to the terrorists to sharpen their attack.

    Experts: Global warming means more Antarctic ice
    By SETH BORENSTEIN | Associated Press – 20 mins agoEmailShare0Print
    The ice goes on seemingly forever in a white pancake-flat landscape, stretching farther than ever before. And yet in this confounding region of the world, that spreading ice may be a cockeyed signal of man-made climate change, scientists say.

    This is Antarctica, the polar opposite of the Arctic.

    While the North Pole has been losing sea ice over the years, the water nearest the South Pole has been gaining it. Antarctic sea ice hit a record 7.51 million square miles in September. That happened just days after reports of the biggest loss of Arctic sea ice on record.

    Climate change skeptics have seized on the Antarctic ice to argue that the globe isn’t warming and that scientists are ignoring the southern continent because it’s not convenient. But scientists say the skeptics are misinterpreting what’s happening and why.

    Shifts in wind patterns and the giant ozone hole over the Antarctic this time of year — both related to human activity — are probably behind the increase in ice, experts say. This subtle growth in winter sea ice since scientists began measuring it in 1979 was initially surprising, they say, but makes sense the more it is studied.

    “A warming world can have complex and sometimes surprising consequences,” researcher Ted Maksym said this week from an Australian research vessel surrounded by Antarctic sea ice. He is with the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in Massachusetts.

    Many experts agree. Ted Scambos of the National Snow and Ice Data Center in Colorado adds: “It sounds counterintuitive, but the Antarctic is part of the warming as well.”

    see, thats why we still need Big Bird to explain these things to us.

    Obama dribbles basketball promises to me more combative next debate with Romney.

    YahooNews: Obama says he was ‘too polite’ in first debate with Romney

    By Olivier Knox Oct 10 2012

    “What happened in the debate? Everybody wants to know,” radio host Tom Joyner asked Obama. “Was that some kind of genius strategy to rope-a-dope him in?”

    The president ducked the Muhammad Ali comparison but said, “I think it’s fair to say I was just too polite.” He promised to be more combative at the second and third debates, to be held on Oct. 16 and 22. “We’re going to take it to him.”

    “The good thing is that we’ve got a lead and, Tom, you guys know a little bit about basketball. You know, you have a seven-game series, we’re up two-zero and we lose one” he said.

    Joyner cut him off: “Yeah, but you had the open shot and you didn’t take it!”
