In spite of the ongoing terror threat emanating from Yemen, the White House says it does not plan to rethink President Obama’s decision last May to lift a moratorium on releasing Guantanamo Bay prisoners back to that country. “I am lifting the moratorium on detainee transfers to Yemen, so we can review them on a case by case basis,” Obama told an audience at the National Defense University during a major counterterrorism policy speech on May 23. http://patdollard.com/2013/08/despite-terror-threat-obama-to-release-gitmo-detainees-to-yemen/  ————————

With conditions continuing to deteriorate in Syria, the Obama administration is making a major policy shift by agreeing for the first time to allow thousands of new Syrian refugees into the United States, The Cable has learned. The numbers are relatively small: just 2,000 refugees, compared to an estimated three million people who have fled Syria during the civil war    http://thecable.foreignpolicy.com/posts/2013/08/08/exclusive_us_will_now_let_in_thousands_of_syrian_refugeesmanual detailed DEA’s use of hidden intel evidence  http://uk.reuters.com/article/2013/08/07/uk-dea-irs-idUKBRE9761B620130807 ————————

On Tuesday, Barack Obama insisted that the US government isn’t spying on Americans by surveilling the contents of their communications.  Less than two days later, the New York Times makes hash of that claim.  The NSA, reports Charlie Savage, sifts through the content of “vast amounts” of electronic communications between Americans and people abroad in their search for links to terrorism, and not just the metadata: Well, it’s not like anyone actually bought that nonsense from Obama on the Tonight Show.  Even one of Obama’s former key aides, Van Jones, openly scoffed at the claim that the NSA wasn’t spying on Americans: “Everybody knows I love this president, but this is ridiculous,” said Jones. “We do have a spying program, and we need to figure out how to balance these out.”http://hotair.com/archives/2013/08/08/nyt-no-spying-on-americans-au-contraire/ ————–

Allen West said this yesterday on his Facebook: Three 15-yr-old black teens beat up a 13-yr-old white kid because he told school officials they tried to sell him drugs. Do you hear anything from Sharpton, Jackson, NAACP, Stevie Wonder, Jay-Z, liberal media, or Hollywood? Cat got your tongues or is it that pathetic hypocrisy revealing itself once again? Y’all just make me sick.  http://therightscoop.com/allen-west-calls-out-sharpton-jackson-naacp-stevie-wonder-jay-z-liberal-media-and-hollywood/ ——————-

Pres. Obama is asking public school teachers to “take it easy” on black students who misbehave.On July 26, 2012, Obama signed an Executive Order to create the African American Education Initiative. The order births a new federal bureaucracy and effectively offers black students a green light to misbehave at school. Obama asked public school teachers to reduce the number of disciplinary actions taken against black students. Specifically, it calls on schools to “not rely on methods that result in disparate use of disciplinary tools.” http://americanoverlook.com/obama-tells-teachers-not-to-reprimand-black-students100fedup/102367?utm_source= ————-

The non-partisan Government Accountability Office confirmed Thursday it is launching an investigation into how the country’s largest abortion provider spent millions of taxpayer dollars. Planned Parenthood received more than a half billion dollars in federal funding last year. The GAO’s investigation is in response to a request made by more than 50 members of Congress in February who asked for a detailed report on how money is being used by Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers across the country.  http://www.conservativerefocus.com/blog5.php/2013/08/08/country-s-largest-abortion-provider-planned-parenthood-under-fraud-investigation-by-gao ————–
