Marine Vietnam vet Judge James P. Daley running for Wisconsin Supreme Court
Running in the April election against one of the far left judges on the court. Great record. Part of his bio from this website: Rock County Circuit Court Judge James P. Daley was appointed circuit court judge by Gov. Tommy Thompson in January of 1989 after being elected to three terms as Rock County District Attorney. After his appointment as Circuit Court Judge he was re-elected five times to the bench and has been the presiding judge in Rock County since 1998. Daley has handled all types of cases from civil and family to juvenile and criminal. The Wisconsin Supreme County appointed Daley Chief Judge of the 5th Judicial Circuit (Dane, Rock, Green and Lafayette counties) in August of 2013. While serving as District Attorney, Daley was instrumental in creating the Rock County Victim-Witness Assistance Program, a program designed to support victims and help them and their families through the legal process. He also established the “Pro-Arrest Policy” in Rock County in 1987 for domestic battery. All law enforcement agencies agreed to arrest every person accused by a victim of committing a domestic battery and keeping them in custody until bond could be set in court. ... A decorated war veteran, Daley enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps in 1966, served in an infantry battalion in Vietnam, and was released from active duty as a sergeant in 1969. In addition to numerous commendations and service medals, he was awarded the Bronze Star with “V” Device for Valor, the Purple Heart Medal, a Meritorious Mast, and the Combat Action Ribbon. Daley joined the Wisconsin Army National Guard in 1974 as an infantry sergeant. He obtained his commission as an infantry officer and held various command positions including Commander of the 32nd Infantry Brigade, the largest unit in the state guard. He is a graduate of the Infantry Officer Basic and Advanced Courses, the Command and General Staff College, and the U.S. Army War College. He retired as a Brigadier General after 36 years of service.

Important: Government Debt Can Never Be Repaid
Excerpt: So how should one react when it becomes mathematically impossible for your entire nation to repay its debts? There was an article this week saying around 20% of Americans state they will not pay off their personal obligations before they die (quite a moral proclamation!). Now Simon Black believes it’s time to realize the United States as a whole will never make good on its gargantuan debt, and some form of default is coming. (See: The Coming Collapse of the American Republic

Senate passes $1.1 trillion spending bill, averting partial gov't shutdown
Excerpt: The votes capped a day of intrigue in the upper chamber of Congress that included a failed, largely symbolic Republican challenge to the Obama administration's new immigration policy, while Democrats launched a drive to confirm two dozen of Obama's stalled nominees to the federal bench and administration posts before their majority expires at year's end. Several Republicans blamed tea party-backed Texas Sen. Ted Cruz for giving the outgoing majority party an opportunity to seek approval for presidential appointees, including some that are long-stalled.

Worth Reading: Wave Elections: What They Mean. By Larry P. Arnn, President, Hillsdale College
Excerpt: These waves have something to do with a change in opinion over the last 50 years. Increasingly large majorities of the people consistently profess themselves afraid of their government. They think it too big. They think it does not account to them—that it is beyond their control and does not operate with their consent. They think it should be smaller, even if that means they receive fewer services. It seems that the growth of government has not made people feel safe and happy. Nonetheless, two of the recent waves elected people who support larger government, and Americans continue to depend upon government more than ever. At all levels, government consumes something close to 40 percent of the economy, not even counting regulatory costs, which are nearing $2 trillion. People seem to be groping for a solution to this, and they do not seem to think they have found it.

Returning soldier told he can't stay with wife and newborn in her apartment because landlord claims lease says 'no visitors for longer than a week'
Excerpt: A soldier who returned home for the holidays to spend time with his wife and newborn baby has been told that he will have to stay elsewhere after the landlord said that he would be breaking the terms of his wife's lease. Sergeant William Bolt is stationed in Missouri, but his wife lives in Central, South Carolina with their newborn baby girl.

Excerpt: Ayers was a co-founder of the radical left-wing Weather Underground terror group. Over a three-year time period, he participated in the bombings of the NYPD headquarters (1970), the U.S. Capitol building (1971), and the Pentagon(1972). (In whose living room an unknown Obama launched his political career. Now he doesn't know the guy. ~Bob)

PETA Wants "Empathy Training" for Man who Killed Raccoon for Biting Him
Excerpt: Apparently, some football player spotted a raccoon and wanted to get a selfie with him and the animal. As is the animal’s wont, it bit the guy, causing concern that he contracted rabies from the raccoon. In response to the bite, the man hit the raccoon with a wrench, killing it. PETA chastised him and suggested to his school that they institute “empathy training” for its students to teach them how to interact with animals

Soros And Dems Sponsored Prison Reduction Law Increases Crime Rate
Excerpt: A recently passed California initiative, endorsed by the state’s Democratic party, the ACLU, and George Soros, is responsible for an increase in Fresno crime figures, according to Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer. Wednesday Dyer criticized Proposition 47--which reduces or eliminates prison time for certain drug and stolen property crimes--while speaking to some of his officers regarding the gang related shooting of a 16-year-old girl.... The Sacramento Bee reported in September that left-wing billionaire George Soros’ Open Society Policy Center donated $1.2 million to the Yes-on-47 campaign, and long has supported reduced drug penalties and legalization. (What POTUS and DOI want nationally for the" disproportionately imprisoned brothers" and the cartels being imported to cause havoc and aid in destruction of society as we knew it. Stay the course. Forward! (To oblivion) --Barb)

'Exodus: Gods and Kings' Review: Behold, The Power Of Boredom
Excerpt: DeMille used the ancient biblical tale to tell a universal story about human liberty. Where Charlton Heston's Moses demanded that Ramses "Let my people go!", Bale's Moses -- and this is no joke -- demands that Ramses pay his slaves a living wage and make them -- again, no joke -- citizens. DeMille's Moses was a liberator. Scott's Moses is a community organizer agitating for executive action on the minimum wage and amnesty. (Atheists determined to redefine the Bible and the Word of God to blur it to those too illiterate or disinclined to educate themselves. If spoon fed, expect propaganda to aid the regime's goals. --Barb)

Man Accused Of Raping Girls, Infecting Them With HIV
Excerpt: David Richard Wilson, 33, was found guilty of the sexual assault of a child in 2005 and sentenced to four years in prison. Six years later, Wilson was back in court, accused in two new cases that, if proven, may have lifelong consequences for two more children. Wilson is charged with super aggravated sexual assault of a child. The enhanced charge is because of the age of the alleged victim. She was only 23 months old at the time. We have also been told that the child is Wilson's niece. (Tough for the kids, but they had to let him out--Obama and Rev. Al say there are too many black guys in prison, have to be released regardless of what they did. ~Bob)

American news media: Make up rape stories, but hide Islamic terrorism. Wonderful.

For the aviation/history buff.

A Christian Asks 13 Gay Bakeries To Bake Him A Pro-Traditional Marriage Cake, And Is Denied Service By All Of Them
I have no problem with gay marriage. But I don't believe folks on either side should be forced to violate their beliefs--that leads to more hate, less understanding. And I do believe that there has to be one rule for all. ~Bob

8th Grader Body Slammed & Arrested by Police for Wearing Rosary to School Football Game in Memory of Dead Brother
Excerpt:: The Rutherford Institute has come to the defense of an eighth grader at Sam Houston Middle School (SHMS) who was allegedly slammed to the ground by police, lain on until he was left gasping for air, then arrested and held in a detention center overnight—all because he wore rosary beads in memory of his deceased brother to a school football game. (Needs confirmation. ~Bob)

Giving our enemies aid and comfort. By Colonel Kenneth Allard (Us Army, Ret.)
Excerpt: Because our Founders understood very well what fates awaited them had the Revolution not ended in victory, Article 3, Section 3 of the Constitution draws a crucial definition very narrowly: 'Treason against the United States shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them aid and comfort.

Academia Today: College prof makes students recite anti-American 'pledge of allegiance'
Excerpt: If you sign up for Denver college professor Charles Angeletti's American Civilization class, be forewarned that you're going to have to recite his invective-filled 'New Pledge' -- and according to some of his students, also be ready to swallow a big helping of his politics. Angeletti, who teaches at Metropolitan State University of Denver, has students learn an anti-American spoof of the Pledge of Allegiance that denounces the U.S. as a Republican-controlled bastion of injustice, all while spewing his own far-left brand of politics, according to current and former students. (Here's a college professor, ranting about how we are a nation that is intolerant of diversity. Maybe he hasn't noticed that both Al Sharpton and Ann Coulter, Rush Limbaugh and Rachel Maddow, Religious Black Conservatives and the Nation of Islam, all get to talk and write very publicly. And some US billionaires support conservative causes, some support liberal ones. It is about the freest nation to be found anywhere, no one gets shut up or suppressed. (Although the major media do, by their own admission, tend to support liberal ideas more than conservative ones.) He says we are" very racist, very repressive." Really? Where's all that repression? The crazy thing is, if we were very repressive, he wouldn't be allowed to teach! That's the part that always gets me about the people who are so very negative about this country, that if it were even close to what they claim, they'd have been taken away a long time ago. I have no trouble with people noticing, as I certainly do, that we have problems and imperfect systems and the country needs to make some changes and improvements. But such deep negativity is not productive in any sense; such people are more part of the problem than of any solution. --Del. My friend John Payne. ho got a new lung five days before me, a black Marine Vietnam vet who grew up in the Jim Crow south, was drafted, and was badly wounded in infantry combat, said to me, "Bob, there's a lot wrong with America. But if you don't like it here, if it's not working for you, why wouldn't you go live someplace else?" Angeletti isn't fit to shine John's boots. ~Bob)

From the email: About the best naval footage ever shot by a Navy cameraman. The camera
was in the gun turret under attack. Amazing!. (Professor Angeletti should have to watch this every day. ~Bob)

Military Punishes Chaplain for Referring to the Bible in Suicide-Prevention Seminar
Excerpt: The Army has disciplined a military chaplain for making references to the Bible during a suicide-prevention seminar last month. A serviceman brought the Judeo-Christian religious content to the attention of an atheist group, which complained about it. Now, the chaplain is fighting back, maintaining he did nothing wrong. The dispute has renewed a debate over the appropriate role of faith in the military.

Termites at Work on American History. By Mona Charen
Excerpt: If we lived in a country where most students were graduating from high school with good English and math skills and with a firm grasp of American history and government, we might be in a position to make time for advanced computer skills. But we don't. Only about 68 percent of Newark's students even graduate from high school. As for those students who do graduate, not just in Newark but across the country, it seems that smartphone skills come pretty naturally. Who hasn't seen a middle-aged adult getting tutoring on his iPhone from a teenager? (That's how it seems a lot of academics and the people writing history books like to present the history of this country. Tight focus on every negative element to be found, and a general neglect of the positive elements that in fact have gotten us to where we can write about the negatives to classrooms full of mixed heritage kids. And ambitious statements about teaching kids how to use Smartphones make a great soundbite, but have nothing to do with the need for major improvements in our public education systems all over the country, to give kids inspiring teachers and well taught classes in English, math, science, and history, with the history of this country in particular. Not taught as if we were always perfect, but taught with the balance where it should be, on the wonderful ideals of our Founding, and the progress made steadily towards those ideals. Just as you can love a person while aware of their foibles and faults, citizens should be able to love this country while aware of its past and present imperfections. This glass is at least 3/4 full, and it's a terrible disservice to our youth and the nation for it to be represented differently. --Del)

Warren: "I Am Not Running For President." By Guy Benson 
Excerpt: v:shapes="_x0000_i1025"> v:shapes="_x0000_i1026"> Elizabeth Warren is a Democratic Senator from Massachusetts, a fraudulent Native American, and the Left's political crush du jour, who's been dubbed by some as liberals' version of Ted Cruz. (Oddly, her recent threats to buck her party's leadership and shut down the government didn't garner the sort of apocalyptic coverage that Cruz's endeavors have. She now calls the whole episode a "warning shot," suggesting there's more fighting for principle to come). In spite of whispers and terrible music video tributes, Warren has consistently denied that she is running for president, repeating her answer in an interview with NPR:

Muslim Student Attacked – Liberals Silent – Because He’s Conservative
Excerpt: This is another one of those stories that just lends itself to asking… “what if a conservative/Republican had done this?” Imagine if a Muslim student had been persecuted by conservatives on a college campus – the story would soon find itself plastered all over the internet and other media.

School Choice in Florida Helps Low-Income Families
Excerpt: Florida's school choice program has been under fire from unions since August, when the Florida Education Association and other groups filed lawsuits challenging the state's tax credit program. ... Florida's program grants children educational opportunities they would otherwise lack; over half (54 percent) of the students receiving scholarships come from single-parent families with household incomes of just $24,067. According to Corona, a 2011 study found that children in the scholarship program were performing "slightly better" than their counterparts in traditional public schools, and other studies have indicated that Florida public schools are improving due to competition created by school choice in the state.

Satire--Worth Reading: Nothing Succeeds Like Liberal Secession: Blue America Without Red America Would Be A Basket Case. By Kurt Schlichter 
Excerpt: As liberal thought leader Michael Tomasky wrote of the South, “Practically the whole region has rejected nearly everything that’s good about this country and has become just one big nuclear waste site of choleric, and extremely racialized, resentment…. Forget about the whole fetid place. Write it off. Let the GOP have it and run it and turn it into Free-Market Jesus Paradise. The Democrats don’t need it anyway.” Soon, it became an article of faith within the liberal elite that it was not only their party that did not need the rest of America. Blue America itself, they argued, did not need Red America, economically, intellectually or morally.

NY COP: ‘AU Gun Laws Did Nothing to Stop Sydney Terrorist From Getting a Gun’
Excerpt: Draconian gun laws did nothing to prevent a terrorist from getting a gun. One armed patron of cafe could have ended this quickly. NSW Police Commissioner treating this like a local crime, not terror. 5 hostages have escaped so they have ironclad intel. Shooter has shown his face and body multiple times, yet snipers not given green light to shoot.

Excerpt: Karen Collins, 45, and her boyfriend, Robert Esteves, 42, had returned to Esteves' house in the 9000 block of Sharla Drive after a Christmas party. They were lying in bed when Collins' ex-boyfriend, Bobby Edler, 44, entered the room, according to the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office. Edler ordered Collins out of bed at gunpoint. He led her to the front door, at which point Esteves grabbed a shotgun and fired at least two rounds at the intruder. One of the shots proved fatal.

BREAKING: Massive Spike In Whites Setting Blacks On Fire
Excerpt: How come there has been no national #hashtag crusade or basketball T-Shirt campaign against these barbaric atrocities carried out by white-trash scum who have actually lit black grandmothers, granddads, fathers, mothers, teens and twenty-somethings on fire after dousing them with lighter fluid? What kind of gross silence and injustice is this? Huh? Huh? What’s that you say? You say, “That it is not white thugs who’ve been setting innocent blacks ablaze lately, but actually black thugs that have been igniting innocent white people; and these crimes have been grossly ignored by the Lame Stream Media,”?

Obamacare/Government Healthcare News

Worth Reading: A Republican Alternative to Obamacare. By John C. Goodman 
Excerpt: They can begin by repealing the worst features of Obamacare. They can do that by keeping three promises many of them made to voters during the last election: Keep your job; keep your health insurance; and keep your doctor. The most direct way to get rid of all the anti-job provisions of ObamaCare is to repeal the employer mandate. The most direct way to insure that people can keep insurance they like is to repeal the individual mandate. And the most direct way of insuring people can keep their doctor is to deregulate and denationalize the health insurance exchanges. Then Republicans can move on to real reform of the health care system. There are seven principles that should be adhered to. (Congressman Tom Price, MD, [R-GA] has had a pretty good bill in for years, but gets no traction, as the media keep repeating the Democrats lie that the Republicans offer no alternatives. ~Bob)

Excerpt: The CROmnibus, with which the lame-duck Congress keeps the government open in 2015, takes small but important steps to repeal Obamacare. For the short term, the most important anti-Obamacare achievement is eliminating taxpayers’ liability for Obamacare’s risk corridors, often described as a “bailout,” to health insurers participating in Obamacare’s exchanges.

Peru to take legal action over Greenpeace stunt at ancient Nazca lines
Excerpt: Peru will seek criminal charges against Greenpeace activists who it says damaged the world-renowned Nazca lines by leaving footprints in the adjacent desert during a publicity stunt. “It’s a true slap in the face at everything Peruvians consider sacred,” said Luis Jaime Castillo, the deputy culture minister, after the action by the environmental group on Monday, at the famed drawings etched into Peru’s coastal desert, a UN world heritage site. He said the government was seeking to prevent those responsible from leaving the country while it asks prosecutors to file charges of attacking archaeological monuments, a crime punishable by up to six years in prison.

More Workplace Violence: Police say 3 dead, including gunman, after raid ends Sydney hostage situation
Excerpt: Police say three people are dead -- including the gunman -- after authorities stormed a Sydney cafe early Tuesday, bringing to a dramatic end a 16-hour standoff in which a jihadist and murder suspect had held 17 hostages in a scene much of the world watched on television. A series of explosions, believed to be gunshots and flash grenades, came just before 2:30 a.m. local time as several more hostages fled Lindt Chocolat Cafe, where a man identified as Man Haron Monis, an Iranian also known for sending hate mail to the families of fallen soldiers, was holed up with the captives. Authorities say Monis was shot and killed during the confrontation with police.

Islamic Terrorist Who Took Hostages in Australia Has Criminal Record of Murdering Ex-Wife, Rape, Etc. By Katie Pavlich 
Excerpt: Sheikh Haron moved to Australia from Iran in 1996. During that time he was involved in murder, sexual assault and support for terrorism in the most blatant ways possible. In two decades, he wasn’t expelled from the country despite a laundry list of crimes and horrible behavior like sending Jihadist letters to the families of soldiers killed in Afghanistan. (The people who failed to act against him--I'm thinking death penalty would have been about right--have the blood of two hostages on their hands. ~Bob)

Democrats: Undermining National security since 1968.
Back in Saigon: The Senate Intelligence Committee Report. By Bruce Thornton
Excerpt: The Senate’s misleadingly dubbed “torture report,” an executive summary of which was released by the Senate Intelligence Committee, is a shameless and dangerous act of political grandstanding and moral preening. The investigative report of the CIA’s long-suspended interrogation program reflects nothing more than just how firmly the progressive mind is stuck in the old Vietnam War paradigm, their master narrative of American crime and left-wing righteousness. Once more, we see how reactionary is the ideology of the left, their minds unable to accommodate historical change, new ideas, or even coherent thinking. (Here is someone going right back at Feinstein and the rest about their super zingy report on the CIA and "enhanced interrogation techniques". Very many people will reject the comments about the techniques not truly being torture in the legal sense. On the one hand, legality is important, and the historical definition of torture does focus on deliberate infliction of agonizing pain and possible physical damage. Ripping off fingernails, burning parts of the body, running electric current through sensitive organs, etc, are the modern methods we hear of, in earlier times it was use of the rack, the "pear of anguish", and other devices that were favored by official torturers when that was a recognized profession. Sleep deprivation, being uncomfortably cold, hearing continuous loud unpleasant noise, being humiliated in front of others, don't inflict agony or cause damage, nor does the awful panic response that waterboarding causes. But most of us would not be eager to undergo any of that, and others will say that such treatments "amount to torture". Personally, I have no trouble with such methods as long as they are inflicted only on those people whom we have very solid evidence as being both the Bad Guys and in particular, the knowledgeable Bad Guys, whose knowledge is very important to keeping our people safe. --Del. Oderint dum metuant. ~Bob)

Qatar 'broke promise to US over Guantanamo detainee'
Excerpt: Qatar broke an "explicit" promise by allowing a former Guantánamo detainee who had trained with al-Qaeda to leave the country and visit Britain, a new report has found. Jarallah al-Marri, who attended an al-Qaeda training camp in Afghanistan before the terrorist attacks on September 11, was freed from Guantánamo in 2008.

Germans Rise Up Against Islamization. By Soeren Kern
Excerpt: There is a mounting public backlash over what many perceive as the government's indifference to the growing influence of Islam in German society. This backlash represents a potentially significant turning point. Despite efforts by German politicians and the media to portray PEGIDA as neo-Nazi, the group has taken great pains to distance itself from Germany's extreme right. The group says that it is "apolitical" and that its main objective is to preserve what is left of Germany's Judeo-Christian culture and values.

"It’s Pork or Nothing’, ‘And if You Don’t Like it, Take Your Children Home’, Muslim Parents Told,” by Oliver Lane
Excerpt: Muslim parents have reacted angrily in a French town after the mayor announced it was 'pork or nothing' for school lunches, under the principles of the secular republic which dictates that religion should have no place in state institutions – including schools. The change came after the catering company that provides meals to the 180 students in the small town of Sargé-lès-Le-Mans in southern France reported difficulties providing alternate meals for the 15 Muslim children on pork-based meal days. 

Islamic State Storms Town in Western Iraq, Kills 19 police: Officials
Excerpt: Islamic State fighters stormed a town in Iraq's western Anbar province on Saturday, killing at least 19 policemen and trapping others inside their headquarters, in the latest attack in the desert region where it controls large amounts of territory, officials said. (Clearly the Islamic State has been crippled by those U.S. airstrikes. --Robert Spencer,

Yemen kills 'al-Qaeda militants disguised as veiled women'
Excerpt: Several suspected al-Qaeda militants, disguised as fully veiled women, have reportedly been shot dead by Yemeni security forces near the Saudi border. The militants were killed after one of them opened fire on a soldier who was checking their vehicle, officials say. (The mailed fist behind the veiled face. But we have to let terrorists go veiled or, gasp, be accused of Islamophobia. ~Bob)

'I would kill you': ISIS captive held by Kurds admits taking 70 lives. By Hollie McKay
Excerpt: But victim or not, Omar said he became a prolific killer for ISIS, by his count racking up 70 executions in a matter of months. He claimed he killed his victims with rifle shots, and was chillingly candid about why he did it. “Because they were saying bad words about A'isha [one of Mohammad’s wives, known as the “mother of believers”] and burning a mosque,” he said, adding that he did not receive any type of reward from ISIS leaders for the large number he killed.

FBI, DHS issue bulletin for law enforcement warning of lone wolf domestic terrorism. By Robert Spencer,
Excerpt: This bulletin seems a bit tardy, as there has already been lone wolf domestic terrorism recently — the axe-wielding jihadist in New York City, the Oklahoma City beheader, and more. But of course, it isn’t about jihadis at all. The FBI and DHS aren’t warning about lone wolf Islamic jihadists — rather, they’re concerned about violent attacks from adherents of the “Phineas Priest ideology.” Which group is larger? The answer is obvious. But which group has powerful advocates within the Obama Administration? Contrast this with the FBI taking down a poster of the Most Wanted Terrorists from Seattle buses after Muslims complained that those terrorists were all Muslims.

Don't yell at terrorist suspects, soldiers told. Army chiefs warn interrogations are being hampered by go-softly rules. By Robert Mendick and Tim Ross
Excerpt: British soldiers have “lost their capability” to interrogate terrorist insurgents because of strict new rules on questioning that even ban shouting in captives’ ears, military chiefs have warned. The rules — detailed in court papers obtained by The Telegraph — also prevent military intelligence officers from banging their fists on tables or walls, or using “insulting words” when interrogating a suspect. (Yep, don't do anything that might possibly upset those poor guys you've apprehended from that pool of people whose greatest ambition in life is to kill Westerners, infidels, and anyone else they decide is not entitled to live. Now the official rule is “There must be no intimidation of any kind”. Wow... so it's offer them tea and crumpets and then ask, very, very politely, if they would care to discuss, perhaps, just something at all about their friends who are part of the group that is killing people. Western Civilization has apparently signed a suicide pact with itself, and the ultra-Liberals, super bleeding hearts, and total featherbrain professors, along with politicians who are spineless or idiots or both, are firmly set on whatever courses of action will help society collapse in the face of whatever opposition comes along. Heaven help us. --Del)

Words 'Israel' and 'Jewish State' Banned From Being Spoken At Irish Holocaust Memorial Event
Excerpt: Next month, the Holocaust Educational Trust Ireland (HETI), will be hosting the country's annual event commemorating the Holocaust. According to the British Jewish news site The JC, for the second year in a row they have told the event's host, "not to refer to the Jewish State or the State of Israel during any part of the ceremony." (Commemorating the Holocaust, but it's not clear if they were against it or for it. ~Bob)

Excerpt: Diplomatic drama during the Europe-Israel panel at The Jerusalem Post Diplomatic Conference in Jerusalem on Thursday, moderated by Herb Keinon with The Jerusalem Post |'s Senior Contributing Editor Caroline B. Glick and Danish Ambassador Jesper Vahr.

Excerpt: The Al Nusrah Front, al Qaeda's official branch in Syria, Ahrar al Sham, and elements of the Western-backed Free Syrian Army have advanced on regime positions in the northwestern province of Idlib. The Al Nusrah Front, supported by jihadist groups Ahrar al Sham and Jund al Aqsa, and units from the Free Syrian Army, today claimed to have overrun Wadi Al Daif, a Syrian Army base located just east of the city of Maa'rat al Nu'man. In addition, Ahrar al Sham, Al Nusrah, and the Free Syrian Army also advanced on Al Hamadiya, which sits just south of the city; the groups claimed to have taken partial control of Al Hamadiya. (Once Assad is overthrown, the real bloodshed will begin, as ISIS, Al Qaeda and the "Free Syrian Army fight for power. We will not like the outcome, I promise you that. ~Bob)

Latest Hamas Gems: A Failed Terror Plot, Praise for ISIS
Excerpt: Five suspected terrorists have been arrested for allegedly planning a series of attacks inside Israel, including a suicide bombing in Tel-Aviv that involved a Palestinian woman pretending to be pregnant. The arrests were part of a joint operation by the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) and Shin Bet (Israel's domestic intelligence agency) and disrupted a plot by Hamas and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, the IDF announced Monday.
