Is obama compromised by his ties to Hamas?Charting Course ^ | 7/30/2014 | Steve BermanPosted on 7/30/2014, 10:53:51 AM by lifeofgrace
Chris Wallace of Fox News Sunday asked Benjamin Netanyahu whether he was worried about “a third intifada.” \\\The Israeli prime minister replied that Hamas “wants to pile up” Gazan casualties in hope of instigating an uprising. In other words, he ducked the heart of the question.
One such truth Anderson Cooper shared on the night of July 17. In speaking about the shoot down of Malaysian airliner MH 17 earlier that day, Cooper referred back to “July 17, 1996, when TWA Flight 800 was shot down off the coast of Long Island in New York.”
An Obama-Caused Border Disaster [he instigated the present influx of illegal aliens]

Why the Alternative Media Will Soon Be King
Why the Alternative Media Will Soon Be King 02 Jul, 2014 by Dave Hodges
Print this article Font size -16+alternative media
I used to lament the fact that the 98% of the mainstream media was owned by five corporations. A decade ago, we all knew that the media was controlled, but the public would laugh in our faces for saying so.
Today, the laughter and cries of “conspiracy theorist” are fading. The mainstream media is dying and the alternative media is exploding and will soon be king.This is a highly significant development. If the globalists are truly going to impose draconian martial law control in the United States, controlling the narrative is critical.
In fact, if the globalists are going to achieve complete dictatorial control over our country, they must achieve two objectives. First, they must quickly move to control the Internet because the alternative media is approaching critical mass and more and more of the public is waking up. Sociologists will tell you that when a committed movement reaches 10% of the population, the movement explodes!
I will be writing a future article where I fully develop this point.The globalists are quickly reaching the point where they can no longer tolerate the Hagmann and Hagmann Report, Steve Quayle and Alex Jones. The globalists must move quickly to subjugate the alternative media before it becomes impossible to control the population.
This article examines this trend curve.The following video sets the tone nicely for the subsequent discussion with regard to understanding how the mainstream media is on life support. Coast to Coast Is the Barometer When Coast to Coast left the alternative media and became part of the censored mainstream media, that put the show on the road to life support.
Art Bell used to be the king of night time radio. His show was creative and captured much of America’s listening audience’s imagination. However, when Art sold control of his show to Premiere Networks and ultimately to Clear Channel Communications, Art lost a good portion of his editorial control and Coast to Coast was never the same. Eventually, Art left Coast and its been nothing but a ratings slide ever since, except for the brief breath of fresh air provided by John B. Wells.
After a period of prolonged instability following the departure of Art Bell as the primary host of Coast to Coast, George Noory entered the scene in 2003 where he has since remained. However, Noory’s listening numbers are nothing to write home about. Once upon a time, some estimated that Art Bell had somewhere around 6-12 million listeners on any given night. In contrast, Noory’s numbers are a much smaller 275,000 to 300,000 listeners per night. Interestingly, the Hagmann and Hagmann report boasts very similar numbers on a good night.
Further, Alex Jones averages two million listeners per week, which averages about 400,000 per day which is leaving Coast to Coast in the rear view mirror. If Coast to Coast is to remain a viable entity, they will have to begin to embrace the pioneer spirit of Art Bell and John B. Wells. When John B. Wells joined coast, his numbers were anywhere between 750,000 to 1.2 million listeners for any given Saturday night. This ratings disparity could not have resonated well with George Noory.There were some who were in favor of making Wells the permanent host of the show during the week. This idea was met with draconian repression in an effort to preserve the status quo. George Noory has proven to be a good corporate employee and a great protector of the corporate interest and that is first and foremost in importance to management at Clear Channel. This speaks to the clear message of what Coast to Coast has become.
One has to go no further than Steve Quayle’s website to understand the seismic shift in who the public is following with regard to getting their news. Steve has one of the largest websites in the world. In the alternative media, he is in the top three. He has 1,533 websites that follow his work and publications on a daily basis.
This exponentially increases his reach in a way that would have not been possible before the introduction of the Internet.The numbers are in, and as you can see below, people would rather go to sites like Steve Quayle, or listen to Doug and Joe Hagmann, rather than get their news from CNN, Fox, HLN or MSNBC.Case In Point: The Common Sense Show…………………………..

….It is difficult to understand how Buchanan has come to embrace Putin, except as a reaction to his own loss of faith in the United States.
It seems that, for Buchanan, America has become the new “Evil Empire,” something the far-left has been arguing for years, and that Putin is the savior of Christian civilization.The biggest false assumption in this rationale is that Putin’s recent conservative rhetoric on family values is legitimate, and not propaganda and disinformation.Yet, as analyst J.R. Nyquist points out, Putin was asked about this topic by Larry King on CNN in 2000.
At the time, the Russian president rejected traditional religious belief, except to say he did have a cross and had worn it. King asked, “Do you believe there is a higher power?” Putin replied through a translator: “I believe in human beings. I believe in his good intentions. I believe in the fact that all of us have come to this world to do good. And if we do so, and if we do so together, then success is awaiting for us. And both with regards to our relations as people to people, or inter-state relations. And most important, we will achieve the ultimate goal, comfort in our own heart.”

New York Times: Demonizing Sgt. Bergdah
lThe New York Times via the Salt Lake Tribune ^ | Friday, June 6, 2014 | EditorialPosted on 6/7/2014, 9:03:45 AM by kristinnFour months ago, Sen. John McCain said he would support the exchange of five hard-core Taliban leaders for the release of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl.”I would support ways of bringing him home,” he told CNN, “and if exchange was one of them I think that would be something I think we should seriously consider.
“But the instant the Obama administration actually made that trade, McCain, as he has so often in the past…SNIPThough we criticized the administration for ignoring the law in not informing Congress of the transfer of the Taliban detainees 30 days in advance, leave it to Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and other hyperventilators to claim that continued release of prisoners from Guantánamo without prior notice is now considered an impeachable offense, a ludicrous leap.SNIPThis duck-and-cover response is the result of the outrageous demonization of Bergdahl in the absence of actual facts. Republican operatives have arranged for soldiers in his unit to tell reporters that he was a deserter who cost the lives of several soldiers searching for him.
In fact, a review of casualty reports by Charlie Savage and Andrew Lehren of The New York Times showed there is no clear link between any military deaths and the search.SNIPAnd a classified military report shows that Bergdahl had walked away from assigned areas at least twice before and had returned, according to a report in The New York Times on Thursday.

King said he is seriously considering making a run at the nomination, if only to prevent those younger, more right-wing candidates from becoming president…….MORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

On May 7th, an apoplectic CNN attempted to provide cover for Hillary Clinton after her unprovoked assault on 100 million American gun owners. Speaking before the National Council for Behavioral Health, Hillary stated that the nation’s “gun culture” had gotten “way out of balance.”
“We’ve got to rein in what has become an almost article of faith that anybody can have a gun anywhere, anytime” added Clinton.
“I don’t believe that is in the best interest of the vast majority of people.”

Based on the statements from most House GOP leaders, it appears that the major fig leaf in the latest push for open borders will be “legalization without citizenship.” Let’s put aside for a moment the fact that the Dream Act will directly or indirectly grant citizenship and bring in millions of illegal immigrants without any other amnesty legislation. The broad notion of a permanent or long-term legal status without citizenship is preposterous. Look no further than Obama’s response to the GOP’s principles on immigration:

It will be far more than the proverbial Fishy Friday when Barack Hussein Obama walks into the Vatican to meet Pope Francis, armed only with his braggadocio pen and phone.
The news of the upcoming Obama papal visit comes from no angels but from abortion-espousing John Kerry having just been at the Vatican himself.
“U.S. President Barack Obama will visit Pope Francis, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said after his own stop at the Vatican Tuesday—though it wasn’t immediately clear when the meeting between the President and pontiff will happen.
“I know that the Holy Father is anticipating the visit of President Obama here, and the President is looking forward to coming here to meet with him,” Kerry said in Rome after meeting with Vatican Secretary of State Pietro Parolin.
If there is one place in the entire world where the braggadocio pen and phone of a visiting Marxist would be of little use, it would be the Vatican which has stood strong against both Communism and radical Islam for centuries.
For those on the left who would argue that the Vatican fighting Communism is ancient history, John Paul II, as Karol Wojtyla stood unflinching in the face of Communism and sent it on the run.

“You work for the best and prepare for the worst in this business. But I think it would be a terrible mistake not to take advantage of the opportunity,” he told CNN’s Piers Morgan at the Clinton Global Initiative annual meeting in New York. “And, you know, look, Mr. Putin is very smart.”
Clinton said he knows the Russian president well, and they have a “brutally blunt” relationship. He said Putin had never reneged on a personal agreement with him.
“He kept his word in all the deals we made,” Clinton said.
