Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Friday that 1,300 Free Syrian Army fighters would join Kurds in defending the key Syrian border town of Kobane from an assault by Islamic State of Iraq and Syria militants.


The Syrian Kurds have "accepted 1,300 people from the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and they are holding talks to determine the transit route," Erdogan told reporters in Estonia's capital Tallinn.

Kurdish fighters have been battling ISIS with the help of air-strikes carried out by U.S.-led coalition warplanes. (CONTINUED)

MUST WATCH: The BORDER STATES of AMERICA with Nick Searcy - YouTube



From the Tea Party Patriots: An unprecedented wave of illegal immigration is washing over America, threatening the fabric of our nation.

The Border States of America takes viewers from the Rio Grande Valley to towns across the country, telling the story of human smugglers and drug cartels who profit from Obama’s policies; of American citizens whose lives are put at risk; and the social and economic toll on our communities. We cut through the fog to bring you the truth about what is really happening with the border crisis.

Television and film star Nick Searcy has come on board to narrate The Border States of America. He is an accomplished actor, director, and producer with a career spanning more than 30 years in cinema, television, and on the stage.

Panetta: Obama Rushed Out of Iraq Allowing Jihadists to Breed

President Barack Obama had “leverage” to maintain a residual U.S. military force in Iraq, but decided against it, a mistake that allowed jihadists to breed in the country, argues Leon Panetta in his new book. 

Panetta, who served as Obama’s CIA director and then Secretary of Defense, made those revelations in his new book Worthy Fights: A Memoir of Leadership in War and Peace, which he co-authored with Jim Newton and is set to be published on October 7.   Time published an excerpt from the new book, where Panetta argues that maintaining a residual American force in Iraq beyond 2011 could have reined in sectarian violence and prevented the rise of the Islamic State, the focus of the current U.S. military campaign in Iraq and Syria.  

U.S. military commanders in the region and the Joint Chiefs of Staff wanted to keep troops lingering in Iraq, wrote Panetta.  “But the President’s team at the White House pushed back, and the differences occasionally became heated.”  (CONTINUED)

Saudi Clerics warn millions of Muslims against 'evil' of ISIS

"These evil groups prey on our youth through mediums like the Internet and parents must start to know what their children are doing and who they talk to," Saudi cleric warns.

MINA, Saudi Arabia - Taking aim at Islamic State, Saudi Arabia has mounted a battle for hearts and minds at this year's haj, warning pilgrims that the hardline group is "evil" and seeking to recruit their children to fight in Iraq and Syria.

As millions of pilgrims visited the holiest sites in Islam on the second day of the annual pilgrimage on Saturday, global leaders condemned the fourth beheading of a Westerner by Islamic State insurgents.

Saudi Arabia declared Islamic State a terrorist organization in March and sharply stepped up denunciations of the group after its fighters made rapid territorial gains in Iraq in June.

US-led air strikes on the group has allowed some of the lost territory to be recaptured, but the well-armed militants continue to make gains in Iraq and Syria. Last week, Saudi air force planes pounded militant targets in Syria.  (CONTINUED)

Ousted Haitian dictator Jean-Claude Duvalier dead at 63 | Fox News

Jean-Claude-Duvalier, the self-proclaimed "president for life" of Haiti whose corrupt and brutal regime sparked a popular uprising that sent him into a 25-year exile, died Saturday of a heart attack, his attorney said.
Reynold George said the 63-year-old ex-leader died at his home.
Duvalier, looking somewhat frail, made a surprise return to Haiti in 2011, allowing victims of his regime to pursue legal claims against him and prompting some old allies to rally around him. Neither side gained much support, and the once-feared dictator known as "Baby Doc" spent his late years in relative obscurity in the leafy hills above the Haitian capital. (CONTINUED)

Russian Scientists Documentary: Cold - YouTube


Andrey Proshutinsky of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution states in an article regarding this documentary:

In today's post you will find a Russian National Television film below (this one), viewed only 70 times so far at Youtube, where Russian scientists express doubt on the IPCC's version of the CO2 story, and warn of a coming cold period. It is the kind of film alarmists do not want the public to see. It is dubbed over in English.

In fact Russian scientists warn that the recent Arctic melt may actually forbode a coming cold. It's happened before. "

Palestinians Reveal the Truth about Gaza: 'Hamas Wanted Us Butchered So It Could Win the Media War Against Israel'



Now that the smoke has cleared from the recent Israel/Gaza conflict the truth of what really happened is finally beginning to emerge. Hamas - the terrorist regime which controls Gaza - does not come out of it well.

"If Hamas does not like you for any reason all they have to do now is say you are a Mossad agent and kill you." — A., a Fatah member in Gaza.
"Hamas wanted us butchered so it could win the media war against Israel showing our dead children on TV and then get money from Qatar." — T., former Hamas Ministry officer. (CONTINUED)

Report: Hamas Used Child Labor to Build Terror Tunnels; Hundreds Killed

The article, "Gaza's Tunnel Phenomenon: The Unintended Dynamics of Israel's Siege," was published in the Summer 2012 edition of the Journal by Nicholas Pelham, who writes for the Economist and the New York Review of Books, according to his bio. It is receiving new attention thanks to Myer Freimann of Tablet, an online journal of Jewish affairs, whose post about Hamas's use of child labor has gone viral in social media.
Pelham wrote that despite the economic success of the tunnels underneath the Egyptian border, which enriched Hamas through a thriving black market as well as arming it with new weapons, there were a few drawbacks. One of these was a "cavalier approach to child labor and tunnel fatalities," he noted. "During a police patrol that the author was permitted to accompany in December 2011, nothing was done to impede the use of children in the tunnels, where, much as in Victorian coal mines, they are prized for their nimble bodies. At least 160 children have been killed in the tunnels, according to Hamas officials" (emphasis added).

Apollo Astronaut: Climate Alarmism Is the ‘Biggest Fraud in the Field of Science’ | CNS News



Climate alarmism is "the biggest fraud in the field of science" and the 97% consensus claim is nonsensical, Apollo 7 astronaut Walter Cunningham tells MRCTV in a preview of his presentation at the upcoming Heartland Institute climate conference, July 7-9.
"Since about 2000, I looked farther and farther into it," Col. Cunningham (USMC, Ret.) tells MRCTV in an exclusive interview. "I found that not one of the claims that the alarmists were making out there had any bearings, whatsoever. And, so, it was kind of a no-brainer to come to the conclusion." (CONTINUED)

The Syrian regime of President Bashar al-Assad has funded and co-operated with al-Qaeda in a complex double game even as the terrorists fight Damascus, according to new allegations by Western intelligence agencies, rebels and al-Qaeda defectors.

Jabhat al-Nusra, and the even more extreme Islamic State of Iraq and al-Shams (ISIS), the two al-Qaeda affiliates operating in Syria, have both been financed by selling oil and gas from wells under their control to and through the regime, intelligence sources have told The Daily Telegraph. 

Rebels and defectors say the regime also deliberately released militant prisoners to strengthen jihadist ranks at the expense of moderate rebel forces. The aim was to persuade the West that the uprising was sponsored by Islamist militants including al-Qaeda as a way of stopping Western support for it. (CONTINUED)

The Impact of Dodd-Frank and Conflict Minerals Reforms on Eastern Congo’s Conflict 10June2014.pdf

The Impact of Dodd-Frank and Conflict Minerals Reforms on Eastern Congo’s Conflict 


Fidel Bafilemba, Timo Mueller, and Sasha Lezhnev 

June 2014 

Executive Summary

Market changes spurred by the 2010 Dodd-Frank law on conflict minerals1 have helped significantly reduce the involvement of armed groups in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo (“Congo”) in the mines of three out of the four conflict minerals. The law, in 

addition to conflict minerals audit programs from the electronics industry and related reforms begun by African governments in the region but not yet fully implemented, has made it much less economically viable for armed groups and Congo’s army to mine tin, tantalum, and tungsten, known as the 3Ts. Minerals were previously major sources of revenue for armed groups, generating an estimated $185 million per year for armed groups and the army. 2

However, artisanally mined gold continues to fund armed 

commanders. Further reforms are needed to address conflict gold and close loopholes on the other minerals. 

Furthermore, initial military restructuring within Congo’s army has removed armed actors from many mines, and military operations undertaken by the Congolese army and the United Nations Force Intervention Brigade have significantly reduced the threats of 

powerful armed groups such as the M23 and the Allied Democratic Forces. Neutralizing these groups – two of the biggest contributors to Congo’s deadly conflict in recent years – is helping improve the situation in the areas where they operated with impunity.
