Libs Silent as Obama Golfs with Halliburton Director

During the Bush years, the mere mention of Halliburton would draw a rabid, foaming at the mouth response from liberals who blamed the oil services firm for dragging the U.S. in to the Iraq war at the behest of Vice President Dick Cheney, Halliburton’s former chairman.

The Halliburton conspiracy theory was not just believed by impressionable MSNBC viewers, it was taken as gospel by well-educated professional adult liberals.

Fast forward a few years to the second term of President Barack Obama and the report of him golfing with a Halliburton director in Palm City, Florida on the second day of his weekend golf vacation draws silence from liberals.

Even with the Associated Press’ unusually forthright headline in its brief report on Obama’s Palm Sunday golf outing, Obama Golfs With Big Money, Oil Moguls in Florida, and the dropping of a helpful reminder about Halliburton’s ties to Cheney, there was not a peep of outrage from the perpetually outraged left.

“…Obama was joined for his round of golf Sunday by Jim Crane, who owns the Floridian. Crane is a major Democratic donor who also owns the Houston Astros and golfed with Obama and Tiger Woods in 2013. He’s also a major player in the Texas energy industry.

“Also in Obama’s foursome is Milton Carroll. He’s on the board of directors of Halliburton, the oil company closely associated with former Republican Vice President Dick Cheney.

“Private equity investor Glenn Hutchins rounds out the president’s group. He’s a partial owner of the Boston Celtics.”

Cameron Gray tweeted Milton Carroll’s bio from Halliburton’s Board of Directors page:

“MILTON CARROLL, Executive Chairman of the Board of CenterPoint Energy, Inc. (a public utility holding company) since 2013 and Chairman of Health Care Service Corporation (a large health insurance company) since 2002; Non-Executive Chairman of the Board of CenterPoint Energy, Inc., 2002 to 2013; joined the Halliburton Company Board in 2006; member of the Compensation and the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committees. Current director of Western Gas Holdings, LLC, the general partner of Western Gas Partners L.P. (since 2008) and LyondellBasell Industries (since 2010). Former Chairman of Instrument Products, Inc. (a private oil-tool manufacturing company) (1977-2014) and former Director of LRE GP, LLC, the general partner of LRR Energy, L.P. (2011-2014).”

A Google search of Obama Halliburton golf within the past twenty-four hours showed no returns from liberal sites.

Boko Haram means “Western” or “non-Islamic” education is a sin.

Boko Haram fighters attacked several villages in Northeastern Nigeria this week. The Islamists shot villagers and beheaded several more with chainsaws.
Russia Today reported, via Religion of Peace:

Militants from extremist group Boko Haram attacked several Nigerian towns, torching houses and fatally shooting those who fled before reportedly beheading some of the bodies with chainsaws. The string of terror attacks comes amid the presidential vote.

At least 25 people were killed and more than 30 injured in the village of Buratai in Borno state, local officials confirmed.

Surviving witnesses described gruesome scenes of murder, saying that not only did the extremists set homes on fire and shoot those trying to escape, but also decapitated the bodies.

Local politician Ibrahim Adamu, who fled the scene, told CNN that Boko Haram “slaughtered their victims like rams and decapitated them,” adding that “they burned a large part of the village and we are afraid some residents were burnt in the homes because most people had gone to bed when the gunmen struck.”

A meeting being held Sunday in Boston about the police shooting death of career Black criminal Angelo West will bar white people from attending according to the organizer.

The meeting announced by the Boston chapter of Black Lives Matter states it will be a “People of Color ONLY space.”

West was killed in a shootout with police Friday after he shot white Boston police officer John Moynihan point blank in the face during a traffic stop as part of an investigation in to an earlier report of shots fired in that area. Moynihan is in a medically induced coma as the bullet is still lodged in his head.

West tried to kill police officers in a 2001 shootout.

The Boston Black Lives Matter chapter posted to Twitter about the meeting:

“TOMORROW: Community Meeting 12:30 – 2:30pm Fields Corner Business Lab 1452 Dorchester Avenue”

“UPDATE: tomorrow’s community meeting will be a People of Color ONLY space. Thank you for respecting wishes of community & Angelo’s family.”

Officer Moynihan was honored by the White House last year as one of ‘America’s Top Cops’ for his role in saving the life of a transit officer during a gunfight with the Boston Marathon bombers in April 2013.

 

Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn: We Have “Policy of Willful Ignorance” in Middle East (Video)

Posted by Jim Hoft on Sunday, March 29, 2015, 9:52 AM

Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, former Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, told Chris Wallace on FOX News Sunday the Obama administration has a “policy of willful ignorance” in the Middle East.

My sense of where the policy is it’s almost a policy of willful ignorance. And, to me, we have some major problems that we are dealing with. And here we are talking to Iran about a nuclear deal with this almost complete breakdown of order in the Middle East… Iran is still a state sponsor of terrorism and here we are dealing with them as though we are giving them a carte blanche. I know it’s going to be some years before they have a nuclear capability. I mean, give me a break.

Meanwhile, Barack Obama is enjoying another taxpayer funded golf weekend in Florida.

 

Netanyahu: Iranian Nuclear Deal Even Worse Than We Thought (Video)

Posted by Jim Hoft on Sunday, March 29, 2015, 9:20 AM

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told his cabinet today that the Iranian nuclear deal is even worse than they thought.

Netanyahu told his cabinet the deal “bears out all our fears.”
Reuters reported:

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu condemned on Sunday the framework Iranian nuclear agreement being sought by international negotiators, saying it was even worse than his country had feared.

Israel has mounted what it terms an “uphill battle” against an agreement that might ease sanctions on the Iranians while leaving them with a nuclear infrastructure with bomb-making potential. Tehran says its nuclear program is peaceful.

“This deal, as it appears to be emerging, bears out all of our fears, and even more than that,” Netanyahu told his cabinet in Jerusalem as the United States, five other world powers and Iran worked toward a March 31 deadline in Lausanne, Switzerland.

Noting advances made by Iranian-allied forces in Yemen and other Arab countries, Netanyahu accused the Islamic republic of trying to “conquer the entire Middle East” while moving toward nuclearization.

“The Iran-Lausanne-Yemen axis is very dangerous to humanity, and must be stopped,” he said.

Netanyahu’s campaigning against the nuclear negotiations crested on March 3 with his speech to the U.S. Congress at the invitation of its Republican speaker, John Boehner, that angered President Barack Obama and many fellow Democrats.

 

What Really Happened to HARRY REID’S FACE? How Does Workout Accident Cause Concussion, Broken Ribs & Busted Face?

Posted by Jim Hoft on Sunday, March 29, 2015, 9:01 AM

What really happened to Harry Reid’s face?
harry reid face
Reid broke several ribs and bones in his face and suffered a concussion on New Year’s Day. He says it was from an exercise accident.

John Hinderaker at Power Line continued his investigation on Harry Reid’s face after the Nevada Senator announced he would not seek reelection this week.

Scott wrote here about Harry Reid’s announcement that he will not run for re-election, a decision which, Reid was quick to say, was not the result of his “elastic exercise band” accident. In January, I wrote OK, So What Really Happened to Harry Reid? I noted the injuries that Reid suffered on New Year’s Day, in Las Vegas: multiple broken bones around his right eye, damage to the right eye, severe facial bruising, broken ribs, and a concussion. Was all of this really the result of losing his balance because an elastic exercise band broke? That seems unlikely, to say the least.

Anyone who saw Reid would say that he looked like he had been beaten up by a guy with a hard left, maybe using brass knuckles:

harry reid beat up

In 2011 Harry Reid “slipped and fell” running in the rain and suffered a dislocated shoulder and bump over his left eye.

The rumor is that Reid had promised to obtain some benefit for a group of mobsters. “He met with them on New Year’s Day, and broke the bad news that he hadn’t been able to deliver what he promised. When the mobsters complained, Reid (according to the rumor) made a comment that they considered disrespectful, and one of them beat him up.”

Isn’t this story bizarre to say the least? And why has the national media so willingly accepted the preposterous explanation?

 

Iranian-Backed Houthi Rebels Aim Long-Range Missiles at Neighboring Countries

Posted by Jim Hoft on Sunday, March 29, 2015, 8:32 AM

houthi missiles
Houthi rebels have reportedly taken control of Yemen’s long-range missile and SAM systems.

The Houthis are pointing the long-range missiles at the port city of Aden and neighboring countries.
Reuters reported:

A Saudi-led military operation has targeted a base where Iranian-backed Houthi fighters had set up long-range missiles and pointed them towards the southern Yemeni city of Aden and neighboring countries, a Yemeni official said on Saturday.

The official told Reuters that Yemeni authorities had received information that Iranian experts had brought in parts for the missiles at the base, located south of Sanaa.

Iran denies allegations made by some Yemeni and Western officials that it is providing money and training to the Shi’ite Muslim Houthis, whose rapid territorial advances triggered an Arab military campaign against them.

The official, a member of the Yemeni delegation at an Arab League summit in Egypt, showed Reuters mobile phone pictures of a huge orange mushroom cloud, saying it was the force of the rockets exploding at the base after it was targeted.

He did not specify which countries the rockets were directed at.

Houthi fighters seeking to overthrow the Western- and Saudi-backed Yemeni President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi have continued to make gains since the Saudi-led coalition launched air strikes against them on Thursday.

“It’s not in our interest to directly confront them army-to-army because they (Houthis) have heavy weapons,” said the official.

Houthi Rebels Threaten Saudi Arabia With Suicide Bombings

Posted by Jim Hoft on Saturday, March 28, 2015, 9:50 PM

Houthi Shiites rally in Yemen. Saudi Arabia started bombing Houthi positions in Yemen this week.

On Saturday Iranian news reported the Ansarullah Houthi movement promised suicide bombings if Saudi Arabia did not halt its attacks in Yemen.
Fars News reported:

A senior member of the popular Ansarullah movement warned of immediate attacks on Saudi territories if the latter refrains from putting an immediate halt to its aggression against Yemen.

“As the Ansarullah movement has promised collapse of some Arab regimes supporting the terrorists, if Saudi Arabia continues its aggressions against the oppressed Yemeni people the Ansarullah fighters will pave the way for the Saudi regime’s destruction by conducting martyrdom-seeking (suicidal) operations inside Saudi Arabia in the coming hours,” member of Ansarullah Executive Committee Abdel Mon’em Al-Qurashi told FNA on Saturday.

He reiterated that Israel and Al Saud are on the same front and Saudi Arabia is taking orders from Washington and Tel Aviv.

“The main cause of the Saudi aggression is the failure of Riyadh’s policies in support of fugitive Yemeni President Mansour Hadi and Takfiri groups and its disappointment at them,” Al-Qurashi added.

He reiterated that the Yemeni army and people will give a crushing response to the Saudi aggressors.

On Friday, Ansarullah Spokesman Zeifollah al-Shami said Yemeni tribes, army and popular forces are united to give a crushing response to the recent Saudi aggression, adding that Tel Aviv and Washington have ordered Riyadh to attack Yemen.

“We know that the Saudi aggression and airstrikes have taken place at the order of Israel and the US,” al-Shami told FNA.

He noted that the Yemeni people have put aside their differences to fight against the aggressors.

“God willingly, the crushing response to the aggressions of the Saudi enemy will come coming days,” al-Shami added.

Saudi Arabia started airstrikes against Yemen early Thursday, one day after the US-backed Yemeni president fled the country.
