King Abdullah Of Saudi Arabia Dead At 90, Half-Brother Succeeds Him




” King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia, the powerful U.S. ally who joined Washington’s fight against Al Qaeda and sought to modernize the ultraconservative Muslim kingdom has died at 90, according to Saudi state TV.

  His successor is his 79-year-old half-brother, Prince Salman, who recently has taken on the ailing Abdullah’s responsibilities.

  The announcement came in statement read by a presenter on Saudi state TV, which aired video of worshippers at the Kaaba in Mecca.

  Saudi state TV said he died after midnight Friday.

A former American diplomat close to the Saudi royal family told Fox News the death of King Abdullah, coupled with the collapse of the government in Yemen, is a “worst case scenario” for the U.S. because current events are allowing Iran to extend its reach and influence in the region.

  With the collapse of President Hadi’s government in Yemen, the former diplomat said Teheran’s influence is now seen in at least four Middle Eastern capitals – Sana’a in Yemen, Baghdad in Iraq, Damascus in Syria, and to a lesser extent in Beirut, Lebanon.”

Marine Sniper Involved In Controversial Video Found Dead









” A Marine Corps combat veteran who endured a long, public legal battle with the service’s senior leadership was found dead Wednesday night.

Retired Cpl. Robert Richards, 28, died at his home in Jacksonville, North Carolina, according to Guy Womack, Richards’ attorney and friend. An autopsy is being conducted to determine the cause of death, Womack said, adding that it does not appear to be self-inflicted. A medical examiner will look at the mix of medication Richards was taking, he said.

  Richards was a scout sniper with multiple deployments to Afghanistan, including one in 2010 during which he sustained severe injuries. Peers and superiors alike praised him for his combat prowess and leadership skills, evidenced by his being hand-selected to serve as the scout sniper platoon team leader for 3rd Battalion, 2nd Marines, during its 2011 tour.

  It was during that deployment when Richards and three other Marines made a video of themselves urinating on Taliban corpses. The video surfaced online in January 2012, causing an international uproar. But the Marine Corps’ prosecution of Richards and others connected to the incident would become overshadowed by allegations that the service’s commandant, Gen. Jim Amos, and his legal advisers manipulated the military justice process to ensure they were punished harshly. A Pentagon investigation did not substantiate those claims.”

Founder Of Westboro Baptist Church, Rev. Fred Phelps Sr. Dies




” The Rev. Fred Phelps Sr., who founded a Kansas church widely known for its protests at military funerals and anti-gay sentiments, has died at the age of 84 according to his son Tim Phelps.

  This news comes after some speculation about his health and whether or not he was in hospice care.

  Daughter Margie Phelps says Fred Phelps died shortly after midnight Thursday. She didn’t give the cause of death or the condition that recently put him in hospice care.

  WBC wrote this BLOG in response to his death.

  Members of the Westboro church, based in Topeka, frequently protest at funerals of soldiers with signs containing messages such as “Thank God for dead soldiers,” and “Thank God for 9/11,” claiming the deaths are God’s punishment for American immorality and tolerance of homosexuality and abortion.

  Westboro Baptist, a small group made mostly of Phelps’ extended family, inspired a federal law and laws in numerous states limiting picketing at funerals. But in a major free-speech ruling in 2011, the U.S. Supreme Court held that the church and its members couldn’t be sued for monetary damages for inflicting pain on grieving families under the First Amendment.”


Good riddance …

One Note Charlie

“Osama bin Laden is dead, General Motors is alive,”



 ” On ABC’s “This Week,” former White House green jobs czar Van Jones called his old boss a “towering figure in foreign policy: You’ve got somebody with a Nobel Peace Prize and he killed bin Laden.” The administration has also leaked details of the raid and cooperated in the making of a Hollywood movie on the raid that is due later this year.

Those of us at The Washington Examiner fist-pumped like everyone else when we heard the news that the SEALs had taken out bin Laden. But is this a grand foreign policy triumph for the ages? We don’t think so, especially given recent events. And one successful assassination does not a coherent foreign policy make. “

Watch Dog For America


Best News we’ve heard all day . Of course it should be at least 47 against without any arm twisting at all . The fact that it isn’t unanimously opposed on the right side of the aisle is indicative of the need to clean house in both directions .


  ” The Law of the Sea Treaty now has 34 senators opposed and thus will not have the Senate votes for ratification, a key opponent of the treaty announced Monday.

Critics of the treaty had argued that LOST would require the U.S. to subject its sovereignty to an international body, require U.S. businesses to pay royalties for resource exploitation, and subject the U.S. to unwieldy environmental regulations as defined in the treaty.

“4 additional senators have joined in opposition to LOST, including Mike Johanns (R-NE), Kelly Ayotte (R-NH), Rob Portman (R-OH) and Johnny Isakson (R-GA). With 34 senators against the misguided treaty, LOST will not be ratified by the Senate this year,” Sen. Jim DeMint, South Carolina Republican, said in a statement on his website. “

   Note DeMint’s warning ” will not be ratified …THIS YEAR ” . The need for continued pressure has not subsided . The battle against statism doesn’t end .  

CNN Shame

Does anyone watch Ted Turner’s Propaganda channel anyway ? They certainly are continuing in their condescension of us schlubs in “flyover” country . 

Big Journalism reports on CNN’s mocking of the support shown by the town of Shiner for the Father that saved his daughter from the child molester . 


  ” CNN has, in their usual fashion, patronized rural America once more. In their coverage of the Shiner, Texas case where a rancher found a man attempting to sexually molest the rancher’s four-year-old daughter and beat the molester to death with his bare hands, CNN couldn’t resist the opportunity to lampoon such primitive behavior. 

  The report begins with the female reporter’s voice-over: “When you hear what happened in Shiner, this town will be known for more than just beer.”

Already the town is belittled for its championing of that “low-class” beverage. One wonders if the reporter would have reported on the same story from the Loire Valley in France: “When you hear what happened in Sancerre, this town will be known for more than just white wine.” Doubtful.”



 This whole affair raises serious questions beyond the obvious dealt with in this article . For one thing , how could anyone in this administration imagine that it is a good thing to keep Holder on ? By now it should be obvious to all that with the election fast approaching and with the scandal that is “Fast & Furious” not likely to fade away anytime soon , the sooner Holder steps down the easier it will be for the Obama cartel to batten down the hatches and undertake some damage control 

  Dragging this out , with the very strong possibility of the investigation coming to fruition in the next few months , would  seem to guarantee ample negative publicity at the most inopportune moment .What might they have up their sleeve ? Could the Obama team be this dense or is there some grand scheme of which Eric Holder is a necessary part ?

“Attorney General Eric Holder again today would not answer who the highest-ranking Obama administration official was that had knowledge of Operation Fast and Furious and the gunwalking tactics it employed before Border Patrol agent Brian Terry was murdered.

Instead, when House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Lamar Smith pressed him directly during a House Judiciary Committee hearing Thursday, Holder dodged giving a response.”
