Sounds like a real ‘pot-mess’ to me, but I’ll wait for you good people to comment… However; If Prime Minister Cameron announced a similar deal over the EU, he would be gone by Monday morning, and his party voted out of power in May 2015. Yours Aye.
“We will not stand idle as the president undermines the rule of law in our country,” John Boehner said on Friday during a press conference, in which he accused Obama of “damaging the presidency” and “turning a deaf ear to the people he was elected to serve.”

Navy SEAL who killed bin Laden revealed: Rob O’Neill named as SEAL Team Six hero who shot 9/11 mastermind three times in head.
The Navy SEAL who shot Osama bin Laden dead in the special force’s most famous operation can be named today. The Navy hero is set to give a full interview to Fox News later this month and waive his anonymity but MailOnline has established that he is Rob O’Neill, a highly decorated veteran who quit after 16 years service.
In an exclusive interview Rob’s father, Tom O’Neill, tells MailOnline, “People are asking if we are worried that ISIS will come and get us because Rob is going public. I say I’ll paint a big target on my front door and say come and get us. My ex-wife gave birth to a man. We shouldn’t be cowering in fear” Rob O’Neill: 400 combat missions, killed more than 30 targets, and is one of the most-decorated SEALs ever
He obviously has his reasons for stepping forward, I wish him well, and I’d buy him a gallon of fine ale should I ever bump into him. And I like his Father’s attitude… Yours Aye.

Revealed: How Nazi war crime suspects were paid millions in Social Security to leave the United States quietly… and at least four are STILL enjoying taxpayer-funded lives thanks to ‘Nazi dumping’ strategy. Suspected Nazi war criminals were quietly paid millions by US taxpayers to leave the country without putting up a fight, an investigation has revealed.
SS guards: Martin Hartmann (far right), and Jakob Denzinger (left), who patrolled Auschwitz for the SS. Both agreed to leave the United States in a deal which let them keep receiving benefits. Hartmann lives in Berlin now, while Denzinger is in Croatia
Dozens of people, including members of Hitler’s SS who guarded death camps where millions of Jews were slaughtered, were handed the cash in exchange for leaving the country and giving up citizenship. A scientist who used slave labor to invent the Third Reich’s V-2 missile was also caught up in the so-called ‘Nazi dumping’ strategy which saw at least 38 people linked to Hitler’s murderous regime leave the US since 1979. Four living people are still receiving monthly checks from the U.S. government valued at around $1,500. Over a lifetime total payments could easily have reached $375,000 per person.
Still taking the cash: Jakob Denzinger, pictured in his Croatian home earlier this year, refused to answer questions about the financial arrangements. Nazi war crime suspects were paid millions in Social Security to leave the United States quietly…
Two double taps: Two rounds to the chest – two rounds to the head, and I am being charitable by offering to the same to such scum. There are those within the US Justice Department who need to drop their heads in total shame over such double standards. Yours ‘Disgustedly’ Aye!
Army War College rescinds Montana Sen. John Walsh’s degree after investigation confirms he plagiarised a research paper. The U.S. Army War College revoked Democratic Sen. John Walsh’s master’s degree after an investigation completed on Friday concluded he plagiarized a research paper required to graduate, a college spokeswoman said.
The Carlisle, Pennsylvania, college assigned an academic review board to the probe in August after The New York Times published a story showing that the Montana senator borrowed heavily from other sources for a paper he wrote in 2007. Walsh was pursuing a Master of Strategic Studies degree at age 47, a year before he became Montana’s Adjutant-General overseeing the state National Guard.
Walsh’s office released a statement saying the senator ‘disagrees with the findings’ but accepts the college’s decision. ‘I apologize to all Montanans for the plagiarism in my 2007 paper, and I am prepared to live with its consequences,’ Walsh said in the statement. Democratic Sen. John Walsh’s master’s degree revoked due to cheating…
It would appear that he has all of the correct tributes required for his political career. Had it been a Republican who cheated, the story would have been splashed all over the papers as headline news. But as a Democrat it gets dropped in close to the funnies… At least the MSM reported it, which just goes to show they know the end is near for the White House Circus. Yours Aye.
They’re among the brightest young minds in the country… and they think America is a bigger threat to world peace than ISIS: Harvard video survey reveals the value of a $60,000 top-class education.
Harvard students believe that American is a bigger threat to world peace than ISIS, according to a recent survey of attendees at the prestigious Cambridge university. Campus Reform, a self-styled ‘campus watchdog’ for conservative students, carried out the interviews in the quad at the Ivy League school on Saturday and asked: ‘Who is the bigger threat to world peace, ISIS or the U.S.?’
The students featured in the video were overwhelming in their belief that America and its interventionist foreign policy is a greater threat than the group of Muslim fanatics that have gained global notoriety in recent months through a series of video of Western hostages being beheaded.

‘We can’t just seal off the country’: Travel ban could only increase Ebola outbreak by restricting care to those in need, CDC director says… Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Tom Frieden warned Saturday that imposing a travel ban to the countries known to be dealing with an Ebola outbreak could make the problem worse, as it would cut off the affected areas from receiving necessary medical aid.
Such was the case recently in Liberia – where the Ebola death toll is nearing 3,500 people – when African Union aid workers were trying to get into the country, Frieden said. ‘Their ability to get there was delayed by about a week because their flight was canceled and they were stuck in a neighboring country,’ Frieden told a press conference Saturday, according to The Hill.
‘In terms of the entry process, we really need to be clear that we don’t inadvertently increase the risk to people in this country by making it harder for us to respond to the needs in those countries, by making it harder to get assistance in and therefore those outbreaks would become worse, go on longer, and paradoxically, something that we did to try and protect ourselves might actually increase our risk.’ CDC director says “we can’t just seal off the country”Looking in from the outside (as I do every single day – and often) allow me to play the part of Devils advocate… “Is that the scent of ‘martial law’ I detect wafting in on the breeze?” If so, methinks the clown in chief will find it a tough bullet to chew… Yours Aye
When America sneezes, we here in the United Kingdom eventually catch the same cold!
Obama has had accurate intelligence about ISIS since BEFORE the 2012 election, says administration insider.Thrown under the bus: Obama told the ’60 Minutes’ program on Sunday that ‘our head of the intelligence community, Jim Clapper, has acknowledged that, I think, they underestimated what had been taking place in Syria’
President Barack Obama’s intelligence briefings have provided him with specific information since before he won re-election in 2012 about the growing threat of the terror group now known alternatively as ISIS and ISIL, an administration insider told MailOnline on Monday. ‘Unless someone very senior has been shredding the president’s daily briefings and telling him that the dog ate them, highly accurate predictions about ISIL have been showing up in the Oval Office since before the 2012 election,’ said a national security staffer in the Obama administration who is familiar with the content of intelligence briefings. The staffer declined to share anything specific about the content of those briefings, citing his need to maintain a security clearance. But ‘it’s true,’ he said, ‘that the [intelligence] community was sending pretty specific intel up to us.’ ‘We were seeing specific threat assessments and many of them have panned out exactly as we were told they would.’Shots across the bow: The president is seeing significant pushback now from members of the intel and national security communities who resent the White House ignoring their warning for years.
Since the president’s CBS interview aired Sunday night, a few intrepid whistle-blowers have poked their heads above Washington’s parapets to disagree with his claim that his intelligence advisers failed to pinpoint the growing ISIS threat. One former senior Pentagon aide told The Daily Beast that ‘either the president doesn’t read the intelligence he’s getting, or he’s bulls***ting!’ Like that former official, MailOnline’s source requested anonymity. He echoed the Pentagon veteran’s concerns about how the president digests the information that Clapper and others distill for him on a daily basis.
‘It’s pretty well-known that the president hasn’t taken in-person intelligence briefings with any regularity since the early days of 2009,’ the aide said. ‘He gets them in writing.’ ‘And it’s well-understood why. No one sits and watches him read them, and no one can come back later and tell Congress in a closed session that “I told the president this specific thing was likely to happen”.’ Obama-accurate-intelligence-ISIS-BEFORE-2012-election-says-administration-insider.Lies – damned lies – and statistics! From a delusional Pinocchio President who has done it for so long he even believes them as they spin out from his wooden pie hole. Yours Aye.
Dear people listen in! We have some good news, and it follows that we have some bad news…
The good news: Controversial Attorney General Eric Holder to step down after nearly six years. ‘Yay, raucous cheers and applause ;-)’ The bad news: Al Sharpton says he’s helping to choose his replacement. Raspberry’s blown, with incredulous belief? ;-( Attorney General Eric Holder, America’s top law enforcement officer, will tender his resignation on Thursday, a U.S. Department of Justice official has confirmed. Almost immediately civil right activist Al Sharpton, a far-left host on MSNBC, said the White House is consulting with him about who should be the next top dog at the Justice Department.
‘We are engaged in immediate conversations with the White House on deliberations over a successor whom we hope will continue in the general direction of Attorney General Holder,’ Sharpton said Thursday. The embattled leader of the U.S. Department of Justice aims to step down as soon as the Senate confirms his replacement. President Barack Obama is expected to formalize the announcement at the White House at 4:30 p.m. Attorney General Eric Holder to step down after nearly six years.
For those dear readers who live on a separate planet; the following from Baptist Minister & Political, Civil Rights, and Social Justice Activist, Al Sharpton. (A true halfwit, left-wing, self-appointed pastor, with a chip on his shoulder the size of Mont Blanc!) Sharp in name, but not sharp by nature. Yours Aye. “Counter-Tourism” Al Sharpton VS the Teleprompter #3

‘Shock without awe': US and five Arab nations launch devastating wave of FIFTY bombing missions on ISIS stronghold in Syria – and foil ‘imminent terror threat’ on America. Click the pic above to enlarge…Tomahawk missile fired from the USS Arleigh Burke warship towards ISIS targets in Syria The U.S. and five Arab countries launched dozens of air strikes against ISIS overnight in order to show the terror group that its attacks will not go unanswered, America’s top military officer said today. Army General Martin Dempsey said the raids in northern Syria – which employed Tomahawk missiles, B1 bombers, F16, F18 and F22 strike fighters and drones – will have successfully proved to the radical Islamists that even strongholds such as the city of Raqqa do not represent a ‘safe haven’. A Royal Saudi Air Force Panavia Tornado IDS, part of the nation’s substantial air fleet… American air power was backed by ‘participation or support’ from Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Qatar, Jordan and the UAE – a coalition of nations that has agreed to assist with the destruction of ISIS – with Britain & France not involved in the overnight strikes. There was also a U.S. attack on a separate band of Islamist militants in Syria – the Al Qaeda-affiliated Khorasan Group, who were said to have been planning an ‘imminent attack’ on a Western target. Pentagon state that the US and partners begin airstrikes against ISIS/ISIL
Now we can see the benefit of hard-earned intelligence gathering that has taken weeks to assimilate, in addition to political behind the scenes wrangling with Arab nations that will be kept ‘hush – hush’ for years to come; the fight to eliminate ISIS/ISIL will take much longer. Sadly the fate of western hostages has now been stamped and sealed, which in part is the penalty of operating around the periphery of a war zone, for what ever their reason… Yours Aye.

‘I’m back!’: Hillary Clinton teases supporters with Iowa campaign speech – adding even more fuel to presidential campaign rumours. Hillary Rodham Clinton returned to Iowa for the first time since her failed 2008 presidential campaign on Sunday, but once again refused to confirm any plans to stand in the race for the White House in 2016. ‘It’s true, I am thinking about it. But today, that is not why I’m here. I’m here for the steak,’ she joked. Sunday’s event paid tribute to retiring Iowa Sen. Tom Harkin at his final steak fry fundraiser.

I opened the morning paper and caught the above news ‘gem’ over breakfast. Instantly the milk in my porridge curdled, a fly dropped out of the air crashing onto the table top, the birds stopped singing, and Nipper scurried away! Needless to say breakfast was ruined, so we all headed outdoors for a breath of fresh air. Just as the morning started to pick itself up I decided to go through my mail boxes, only to find one mail from ‘The Jolly Roger’ sitting in my spam box, which was most unusual as such has never happened before. Upon perusing the mail, I can understand why… WARNING! And I do mean WARNING! You must be considered sane, and be over the age of 18 to click on the following link (because the young must be protected, and what you see can never be erased from your mind!) Thank Gawd NavyOne is deployed Hilarity Clinton, Gawd Bless America… Yours Aye.
Scientists test jet-pack to help soldiers run faster on the battlefield! Think of a jet-pack and you may imagine flying over a futuristic city, inspired by scenes in sci-fi films. But the technology could also be used to enable soldiers to run faster in war-zones in a matter of years. US engineers have created a working prototype that attaches to people’s backs and helps them to run a mile in a much shorter space of time – despite carrying the large metal pack. So what happens when the ‘off’ button malfunctions?
* Engineers from Arizona State University have created a working prototype jetpack that attaches to a soldier’s back and helps them run faster.
* The 4MM project’s aim is to enhance the speed and agility of the wearer of a jetpack so they can run a four-minute mile with ease.
* Inventors say their packs could help soldiers escape dangerous situations on the battlefield and potentially save their lives, giving them more energy.
Engineers develop a thruster to enable soldiers to run faster on the battlefield…

Mysterious fake mobile phone towers discovered across America could be listening in on unsuspecting callers. A report by Popular Science says the towers have been discovered across the country, and have the ability to attack mobile phones through eavesdropping and installing spyware.
They were discovered by people using a heavily customised Android device called the CryptoPhone 500. It uses a secure version of the software which can tell if the phone is being subjected to what is known as a baseband attack. It is then possible to trace the location of the offending tower. The fake cell towers were detected in July 2014, but the report states there could be many more. Les Goldsmith, chief executive of security firm ESD America, told the magazine: “Interceptor use in the US is much higher than people had anticipated.”
“One of our customers took a road trip from Florida to North Carolina and he found eight different interceptors on that trip. We even found one at a casino in Las Vegas.” He said several of the masts were situated near US military bases. “What we find suspicious is that a lot of these interceptors are right on top of US military bases,” he said. “So we begin to wonder – are some of them US government interceptors? Or are some of them Chinese interceptors? “Whose interceptor is it? Who are they, that’s listening to calls around military bases? Is it just the US military, or are they foreign governments doing it? The point is: we don’t really know whose they are.” Phoney cell towers could be intercepting your calls:Every smart phone has a secondary ‘Operating System,’ which can be hijacked by high-tech hackers. The frightening thing is that the vast majority of people now use their mobile/cell phones as personal diaries – storing every piece of detail that hackers drool over. My own mobile contains telephone numbers only, and so far this year I have stooped to sending 4 text messages. ‘There are no flies on me.’ (But you can see where they have been though!) Yours Aye.
