A Florida defendant did not exactly make a good impression with the courts on Thursday when he decided to attack the man appointed to help him with his legal defense because he was black.
Thomas Thorpe, who is facing charges of attempted murder and related offenses after stabbing a passenger at an Orlando bus stop this week, rebuffed the public defender’s offer to aid in his defense.
“I said not guilty,” Thorpe told the judge.“I pleaded not guilty and I don’t want this negro standing next to me. I don’t want a negro standing next to me.”

Al Qaeda Now Controls More Territory Than Ever Before in Middle East
After spending thousands of lives and trillions of dollars in the Middle East over the last decade, it’s looking like we’ve accomplished very little, as Al Qaeda has expanded its reach further than ever before.

Remember, Obama campaigned for re-election on the fact that he had Al Qaeda “on the run”, and covered up the fact that Benghazi was a terrorist attack so he could continue that narrative. Of course, he was obviously either lying or very misinformed. But what else is new?

The Arab Spring revolts that were praised by so many as the beginnings of freedom and democracy in the Middle East have ended up putting radical regimes in place. In Egypt, the radical Muslim Brotherhood took over after Hosni Mubarak was forced to step down, and they were eventually forced out of power and labeled a terrorist group by the interim Egyptian government. In Syria, the allies of Al Qaeda are playing a key role in the rebellion against the government, which means that they will likely be part of the new regime when the government does eventually fall.

Al Qaeda has taken advantage of the vacuums of power created by the fall of regimes in the Middle East by taking control over more territory than they’ve ever had before.

From around Aleppo in western Syria to small areas of Falluja in central Iraq, al Qaeda now controls territory that stretches more than 400 miles across the heart of the Middle East, according to English and Arab language news accounts as well as accounts on jihadist websites.

Indeed, al Qaeda appears to control more territory in the Arab world than it has done at any time in its history.

The focus of al Qaeda’s leaders has always been regime change in the Arab world in order to install Taliban-style regimes. Al Qaeda’s leader Ayman al-Zawahiri acknowledged as much in his 2001 autobiography,“Knights Under the Banner of the Prophet,” when he explained that the most important strategic goal of al Qaeda was to seize control of a state, or part of a state, somewhere in the Muslim world, explaining that,“without achieving this goal our actions will mean nothing.”

Now al-Zawahiri is closer to his goal than he has ever been. On Friday al-Qaeda’s affiliate in Iraq seized controlof parts of the city of Falluja and parts of the city of Ramadi, both of which are located in Iraq’s restive Anbar Province.[...]

In sum, al Qaeda affiliates now control much of northern and northwestern Syria as well as some parts of eastern Syria, as well as much of Anbar province, which is around a third of Iraqi territory.

This is just more proof that as American power and influence around the world has declined under Obama, the world has gotten more dangerous. This is the same president who abandoned Iraq for political reasons and let Al Qaeda take over the key city of Fallujah. Unbelievable.

Daily Show host Jon Stewart mocked Republican lawmakers on Thursday for talking tough in referring to President Barack Obama as a “tyrant,” but never following up on their repeated insistence that he should be impeached out of fear it would only push more of the electorate against them.
“That’s how you know all this talk of tyranny is bullsh*t,” he said.“When your main concern when you’re deposing a tyrant is how it will affect your party’s chances in the upcoming midterm elections, that’s not tyranny.”
What made the latest round of GOP trash-talking interesting, Stewart noted, was that it seemed to stem from “word sausages” from former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R), who referred to the increase in undocumented immigrants from Central America as “the last straw that makes the battered wife say,‘No mas.’”
“If I may, it appears ex-Governor Palin has finally finished with mangling the English language, and has moved on to making Spanish incomprehensible,” Stewart explained.“She’s like a serial killer of language. Or whatever the opposite of a Rosetta Stone is.”
But the initial gung-ho push for impeachment by Palin’s party colleagues, he said, was soon replaced by House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) eschewing that idea for the threat of suing Obama and accusing him of not implementing the Affordable Care Act — which the GOP has never supported — fast enough.
“Let me get this straight: the GOP is going to take down our dictator-in-chief with a civil suit accusing him of not properly executing a law they themselves have tried more than 50 times to partly or completely repeal,” a baffled Stewart said.

Poll: Boehner lawsuit a 'political stunt'

It’s been fun watching Karl Rove’s political persona slowly degrade over the years. He’s gone from being a Machiavellian master strategist who terrified liberals as he ushered in an era of Republican political dominance, to a clown with a whiteboard who bleated futilely on Fox News that Ohio had not slipped out of Mitt Romney’s grasp.

In keeping with this slow skid towards buffoonery, Rove wrote a column for the Wall Street Journal this morning attacking President Obama for attending fundraisers during moments of international crisis.“His timing and his lack of judgment” are terrible, Rove argues, dinging the president for heading off to raise funds in the immediate aftermaths of the Benghazi attacks, the Russian invasion of Crimea, and the assault on Mosul by the terrorist group ISIS.“He makes time for [fundraising] no matter how pressing world or national affairs are,” Rove writes.

Let’s grant Rove’s premise and say yes: the president of the United States should not be jetting off to fundraisers while the world is in chaos and people are being killed overseas. If that’s true, then he’s also just penned a withering critique of his former boss, George. W. Bush.

On March 2, 2004, suicide bombers conducted coordinated attacks on Shiite shrines in Baghdad and Karbala that coincided with the holy day of Ashura. Nearly 200 people were killed, which made it the deadliest day in Iraq since Bush had declared major combat operations over. The next evening, Bush flew out to Los Angeles for a fundraiser, where he joked about Arnold Schwarzenegger’s role in Terminator 3.

Just over a week later, on March 11, 2004, terrorists exploded bombs on commuter trains in Madrid in a coordinated attack that left nearly 200 people dead and over 1,800 wounded. That morning, Bush condemned the attacks. That evening, he flew to New York for a Bush-Cheney campaign fundraiser.

On October 2, 2006, eight U.S. soldiers were killed in Baghdad by small arms fire and roadside bombs. Another three soldiers had been killed in the previous two days. Bush spent the evening of October 2 in Nevada at a fundraiser for Dean Heller.“It’s a good sign, Dean, when your friends and neighbors are willing to put a little hard-earned cash into the hat in order to help you.”

A week later, on October 9, 2006, North Korea detonated its first nuclear weapon. That morning, Bush called North Korea’s actions a “threat to international peace and security” and called on the UN Security Council to take immediate action to counter this “grave threat to the United States.” The next evening he jetted off to Macon, Georgia to headline a fundraiser for Mac Collins.

Rove was working in the White House as Bush’s senior adviser or deputy chief of staff for every single one of these fundraisers. It’s a good bet he wasn’t as concerned back then about the president showing a “lack of judgment” by attending fundraisers during moments of crisis.

Of course, the argument undergirding Rove’s premise is that the president can’t be an effective crisis manager and a politician at the same time. That’s silly on its face, but it’s enough of a hook for a hack politico on the downslide to fake a little outrage.

Give me Herman Cain Cain has won over supporters with his direct, no nonsense approach to reforming government. His plan for creating a fair, flat tax for businesses and individuals, however, has come under fire by critics for being unclear and for potentially placing a greater tax burden on lower-income Americans. His sense of humor has also landed in political hot water for making jokes about building a electrical fence on the U.S. border. Cain also made a notable foreign policy gaff when he said that he could not name the president of Uzbekistan was and "knowing who is the head of some of these small insignificant states around the world" was not as important as focusing on domestic issues. Despite these missteps, he became one of the candidates to watch as the race for the Republican presidential nomination heats up.

(Video) Mia Marie Pope, a former high school acquaintance of Barack Obama, states Obama used to get his cocaine by having sex with older white men.

She also states that he was a well-known pathological liar that often conned people and was using fake social security numbers, which she reported to the FBI, who did nothing about it.

3 of Barry Soetoro’s drug smoking friends died within a few days within each other, with investigations halted into their deaths. Mia Pope notes this and other several reasons why she believes powerful people must have been behind Obama’s rise from Indonesia and continue to protect him and his criminal activities today in this powerful interview.
