IRAQ: ‘ Minister Slams Islamic State for turning Jonahs Tomb into a Park ‘

#AceNewsReport – IRAQ:June.20: An Iraqi minister on Saturday slammed Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) plans to turn the site of the tomb of the Prophet Younis (Jonah) in Mosul – which it destroyed last year – into a park as a “crime” perpetrated against the country’s heritage, a local news outlet reported.

Qais Hussain, the deputy minister of Antiquities and Tourism told the local al-Sumaria News that “there are reports about ISIS’s intention of transforming the tomb into a park and fun city which is another crime against Iraqi heritage.”

Hussain also said the ministry has “a plan after liberating conquered cities from ISIS,” adding that there is “a committee that is currently working to minimize damages being done to heritage sites.”

The site of the tomb is located in the northern city of Mosul, which ISIS seized in June last year. So far the Iraqi government, already backed with Shiite volunteer fighters known as the Popular Mobilization units, has not been able to recapture the city, which has become the group’s stronghold in the country.

BRITTIUS REPORT: Background Details Related to Charleston Shooter

Background Details Related to Charleston Shooter

My friend Zip, was kind enough to send links to me, regarding the Charleston shooter. Following through, the links provided are associated and indicates a common thread or theme. It does appear as manipulation however, the issue of any firearm, remains remote, in lieu of several factors.

Why has the states involved in shooting incidents, all, failed to bring physicians that wrote prescriptions to the numerous shooters? Big pharma never gets to answer before the Bench, either. Indications are that lobbyists, a reoccurring theme of lobbyists, stuffed cash and other items, into elected officials’ pockets. Why has big pharma been manufacturing psychotropic (Brain-Bender medication) narcotics? Many reasons, ranging from teachers unable to handle kids in class, to parents that are liberal to the point of complacency, by having doctors cope with a child’s mental condition, usually it might just be resolved by taking the child to a playground and allow them to run off their energy. That would be normal.

All the gun stuff is due to kids being in the house, watching movies and television, or, playing violent television games. Again, if the kid were running outside, or engaged in youth sports activities, a reduction of possibilities. An idle mind, is the Devil’s workshop. Idle hands are the Devil’s joy.

Another item is running around. Why have parents failed to secure and safeguard any, firearm? If a parent knows the child has any issue involving an inability to think and reason properly, why are those children allowed to be anywhere near guns? It’s not the gun, fingers point back to a complacent and weak-minded parent. External influences. Yes, it is difficult, but someone must be mindful of whom influences kids, and then, why, an influence is there. Cults. What if someone sought an individual that was a bit peculiar, to condition the subject for the commission of a crime, where the subject would commit a crime, while the influence remains covert in the shadows. Some people take Psych-101 and believe they have prowess to outsmart planet earth.

Government shifting in flavor. Absolutely. What would Ike do? A new beginning where youth would be in control and hopes were placed in President John F. Kennedy. Youth. New ideas. But somebody placed those ideas into heads. Who, and why? Sleigh of hand, while every one was looking at global issues ranging from Cuba, in Bay of Pigs, the Castro Cuban Missile Crisis, all the way to JFK sending rice to Korea for people to stem starvation, to military advisors sent to Vietnam. Something was taking place in the background, but everyone focused on what the news presented. Rotary phones. Newspapers. Ashtrays. It was a different world, where people left car keys in the ignition so the keys would not be lost, and car windows were rolled down all night long. Homes were unlocked. Businesses had no CCTV or alarm systems. Actually, it was a different culture. People visited one another. Today, it is, computers. Everyone can not see beyond the monitor screen.

Corporations. They manufacture goods. Influence the world for profit. Common good, connected to corporate profits. Don’t believe it, look at any given day’s results for the stock exchange. Global commerce. Politicians are influenced and change comes about slowly unless one is bold and liberal, then radical ideas become policy. The radical ideas need to clone, and colleges are the ideal setting to enlist the weaker minds that could be influenced in return for grades. The weak-minded leave the college and at some point, procreate. The kid has issues. Doped up by a profiteering doctor that has no love for anything beyond their bank account. Bad influences (parasite humans) find a host. The kid becomes twisted. But what would empower the kid to super human status? The gun. Results are horrific, and it is not the gun.

To blame the gun for killings, is akin to blaming pencils for misspelling words.

The State of Alabama Just Officially Sent This Document to Barack Obama in Historic Move

#AceNewsReport – Featured Post: June.14: This is a copyrighted post and  all l have added it as an excert and you can read more on the link provided below:     

BREAKING:The State of Alabama Just Officially Sent This Document to Barack Obama in Historic Move

The momentum is building for a historic Convention of the States to stop President Barack Obama from causing more fiscal and political harm to the United States.

Approximately three months ago, Conservative Tribune reported that the state of Arkansas had passed a resolution calling for such a convention. Since then the number of states showing interest in such a convention has grown.

More than half the states have filed a Convention of States application as of this year. Now Alabama is the fourth state, along with Alaska, Florida and Georgia, to complete the application.

State legislatures have had enough of Obama and a federal government that has become too big, too intrusive and too corrupt.

Therefore, following the steps outlined in Article V of the Constitution, Alabama lawmakers have called for a convention that ultimately could produce a constitutional amendment to reign in the federal government. The amendment, once ratified by three-quarters of the states, would become a permanent part of the Constitution.

ISRAEL: ‘ Government to issue report on Protective Edge in Gaza ‘

#AceNewsReport – ISRAEL:June.14: The Israeli government is to issue a report on last year’s Gaza offensive on Sunday at 1100 GMT, pre-empting a UN war crimes investigation to be published later this month, Reuters reported.

https://twitter.com/IsraelNewsUS/status/610116672674869248

“Whoever wants to know the truth, let them read this report. Whoever wants to continue with baseless blaming of the state of Israel, let them waste time reading the report by the UN commission,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told his cabinet, as cited by Reuters.

Israeli’s two-month Operation Protective Edge took the lives of over 2,100 Palestinians, mostly civilians, while in Israel 67 soldiers and six civilians were killed.

WASHINGTON: ‘ Hillary Clinton blames Republicans for Inequality in US ‘

#AceNewsReport – WASHINGTON:June.13: Clinton announced her candidacy by blaming Republicans for the fact that inequality in the US has been increasing and Wall Street managers and CEOs have expanded their share of the economy while overlooking how that trend started during her husband’s administration.

Hillary Clinton officially announced her candidacy today saying that she intends to reshape the US economy so it works for more Americans rather than just those on the wealthier end of the spectrum. However, she overlooked her husband’s role in bank deregulation that led to an increase in inequality and the crash of 2008.

“These Republicans trip over themselves promising lower taxes for the wealthy and fewer rules for the biggest corporations without regard for how that will make income inequality even worse,” Clinton said in her speech.

The Republican candidates in the 2016 cycle are continuing to push for the same damaging policies, Clinton argues.

“They pledge to wipe out tough rules on Wall Street, rather than rein in the banks that are still too risky, courting future failures. In a case that can only be considered mass amnesia.”

The choice of Roosevelt Island, named after and dedicated to Franklin Delano Roosevelt stands as an ironic symbol given that Hillary Clinton’s husband, President Bill Clinton, undid key legislation that Roosevelt enacted to end The Great Depression and rein in runaway financial institutions.

President Clinton’s tenure was characterized by financial deregulation which set the stage for the expanded deregulation during the administration of George W. Bush, during the end of which the economy crashed. Clinton signed the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, which repealed the Glass-Steagall Act, a cornerstone of Depression-era regulation Roosevelt had put in place. Bill Clinton also signed the Commodity Futures Modernization Act, exempting credit-default swaps from regulation.

Bill Clinton would likely have a significant advisory role should the couple return to the White House.

WASHINGTON: ‘ Congress prepares to vote on funding cuts to CIA ‘

#AceNewsReport – WASHINGTON:June.14: A US Congress committee is expected to vote on funding cuts of a secret Central Intelligence Agency’s (CIA) operation to train and arm rebels in Syria next week, a US lawmaker said.

The pessimism and skepticism has been on the rise that the United States would be able “to help shape the aftermath” of Syria’s civil war, Adam Schiff, the US Representative for California congressional district said, according to the Washington Post.

“There is a great deal of concern on a very bipartisan basis with our strategy in Syria,” Schiff said. He declined to comment on more details of the bill.

The measure provoked concern among CIA and White House officials, as they said that pulling money out of the CIA effort could weaken US-trained insurgents in Syria, the newspaper reported.

FRANCE: ‘ Paris regrets loss of Russian Arms Market ‘

#AceNewsReport – FRANCE:Exclusive Interview:June.14: While France is taking a hard anti-Russian stance due to the Ukrainian crisis, other European nations are busy signing new billion-dollar contracts with Russia, said Philippe Migault, a military expert from the French Institute of International and Strategic Affairs.

' Paris Regrets loss of French Arms Market '
‘ Paris Regrets loss of Russian Arms Market ‘

Since French companies don’t have access to the two main global arms markets – the United States and China – they face fierce competition for markets in the Middle East and Asia.

That is why voluntarily losing the Russian market, one of the most promising and emerging arms markets in the world, is a silly move on behalf of the French government, Migault told Sputnik France in an exclusive interview.

“We risk regretting this very soon,” the military expert said.

France had the opportunity to deliver two Mistral-class helicopter carriers to Russia; however, Paris complied with Washington’s pressure and decided to cancel the $1.3 billion contract.

France went against its own idea of economic patriotism, highly regarded during the current economic crisis, by abandoning the Mistral deal. Economic patriotism requires the support of exports and the protection of jobs, but France did the exact opposite by cancelling the arms deal

#BREAKING144 ‘ U.S. Poised to Put Heavy Weaponry in East Europe ‘

#AceBreakingNews – RIGA(Latvia):June.13: In a significant move to deter possible Russian aggression in Europe, the Pentagon is poised to store battle tanks, infantry fighting vehicles and other heavy weapons for as many as 5,000 American troops in several Baltic and Eastern European countries, American and allied officials say.

The proposal, if approved, would represent the first time since the end of the Cold War that the United States has stationed heavy military equipment in the newer NATO member nations in Eastern Europe that had once been part of the Soviet sphere of influence. Russia’s annexation of Crimea and the war in eastern Ukraine have caused alarm and prompted new military planning in NATO capitals.

It would be the most prominent of a series of moves the United States and NATO have taken to bolster forces in the region and send a clear message of resolve to allies and to Russia’s president, Vladimir V. Putin, that the United States would defend the alliance’s members closest to the Russian frontier.

After the expansion of NATO to include the Baltic nations in 2004, the United States and its allies avoided the permanent stationing of equipment or troops in the east as they sought varying forms of partnership with Russia.

“This is a very meaningful shift in policy,” said James G. Stavridis, a retired admiral and the former supreme allied commander of NATO, who is now dean of the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University. “It provides a reasonable level of reassurance to jittery allies, although nothing is as good as troops stationed full-time on the ground, of course.”

The amount of equipment included in the planning is small compared with what Russia could bring to bear against the NATO nations on or near its borders, but it would serve as a credible sign of American commitment, acting as a deterrent the way that the Berlin Brigade did after the Berlin Wall crisis in 1961.

“It’s like taking NATO back to the future,” said Julianne Smith, a former defense and White House official who is now a senior fellow at the Center for a New American Security and a vice president at the consulting firm Beacon Global Strategies.

The “prepositioned” stocks — to be stored on allied bases and enough to equip a brigade of 3,000 to 5,000 soldiers — also would be similar to what the United States maintained in Kuwait for more than a decade after Iraq invaded it in 1990 and was expelled by American and allied forces early the next year.

The Pentagon’s proposal still requires approval by Defense Secretary Ashton B. Carter and the White House. And political hurdles remain, as the significance of the potential step has stirred concern among some NATO allies about Russia’s reaction to a buildup of equipment.

“The U.S. military continues to review the best location to store these materials in consultation with our allies,” said Col. Steven H. Warren, a Pentagon spokesman. “At this time, we have made no decision about if or when to move to this equipment.”

Senior officials briefed on the proposals, who described the internal military planning on the condition of anonymity, said that they expected approval to come before the NATO defense ministers’ meeting in Brussels this month.

The current proposal falls short of permanently assigning United States troops to the Baltics — something that senior officials of those countries recently requested in a letter to NATO. Even so, officials in those countries say they welcome the proposal to ship at least the equipment forward.

“We need the prepositioned equipment because if something happens, we’ll need additional armaments, equipment and ammunition,” Raimonds Vejonis, Latvia’s minister of defense, said in an interview at his office here last week.
“If something happens, we can’t wait days or weeks for more equipment,” said Mr. Vejonis, who will become Latvia’s president in July. “We need to react immediately.”

Mark Galeotti, a professor at New York University who has written extensively on Russia’s military and security services, noted, “Tanks on the ground, even if they haven’t people in them, make for a significant marker.”
As the proposal stands now, a company’s worth of equipment — enough for about 150 soldiers — would be stored in each of the three Baltic nations: Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia. Enough for a company or possibly a battalion — about 750 soldiers — would be located in Poland, Romania, Bulgaria and possibly Hungary, they said.

American military specialists have conducted site surveys in the countries under consideration, and the Pentagon is working on estimates about the costs to upgrade railways, build new warehouses and equipment-cleaning facilities, and to replace other Soviet-era facilities to accommodate the heavy American weaponry.

The weapons warehouses would be guarded by local or security contractors, and not by American military personnel, officials said.

IRAQ: ‘ Suicide Bombers in Vehicles hit Security forces & their HQ ‘

#AceNewsReport – IRAQ:#BreakingUpdate June.13: Four suicide bombers in vehicles packed with explosives hit security forces and the local headquarters of the Shi’ite militias killing 11 people.

Islamic State militants attacked government forces and their Shi’ite militia allies on Saturday near the city of Baiji, Iraq.

Four suicide bombers in vehicles packed with explosives hit security forces and the local headquarters of the Shi’ite militias killing 11 people. The attack comes as the battle for control of Iraq’s biggest refinery continues.

Iraq has been struggling for stability since the last US troops pulled out in 2011, as the battle against Islamic State and extensive sectarian disputes obstruct efforts to rebuild the economy.

Rumsfeld: ‘Unrealistic’ for Bush to pursue democracy in Iraq

#AceNewsReport – USA:June.09: Donald Rumsfeld, one of the leading architects of the Iraq war, said in a recent interview that then-President George W. Bush was “unrealistic” to pursue democracy in the country.

Rumsfeld, who served as Bush’s defense secretary from 2001 to 2006, made the comments in an interview with the Times of London.

“I’m not one who thinks that our particular template of democracy is appropriate for other countries at every moment of their histories,” Rumsfeld said.

“The idea that we could fashion a democracy in Iraq seemed to me unrealistic. I was concerned about it when I first heard those words.”

The comments are a departure from Rumsfeld’s robust public defense of the war during the Bush administration, and mark a rare break between him and the former president on foreign policy.

Since the 2003 invasion and the toppling of dictator Saddam Hussein, Iraq has held multiple elections. But most recently, majority Shiites have been accused of sidelining minority Sunnis, feeding tensions that were exploited by the Islamic State, a Sunni terror group.

Even as he voiced second thoughts about the U.S. goals in the Iraq war, Rumsfeld scolded western governments for their current failure to deal with Muslim extremists.

“The movement for a caliphate, the movement against nation states is central and fundamental. And no one’s talking about it,” he said.

#AceNewsServices – WASHINGTON – Dec.03 – President Barack Obama is pressing Congress to pass his $6.2 billion request in emergency funding to combat Ebola, before it leaves for the year, declaring it would be “a good Christmas present to the American people and the world.”

Original Post Date: December 2, 2014

“We cannot beat Ebola without funding,” Obama said Tuesday at the National Institutes of Health. “If we want other countries to step up, we must lead the way.

The $6.2 billion would go toward fighting Ebola in West Africa, establishing more Ebola treatment centres and assessment hospitals and advance the development of vaccines.

Obama said the United States was able to galvanize about $2 billion in international commitments since mid-September.

“This truly has to be a global effort, but that money would not be there if not for U.S. leadership,” Obama continued.

Obama toured the Vaccine Research Center at the National Institutes of Health to congratulate Dr. Francis Collins and Dr. Tony Fauci on the first published results from Phase 1 clinical trials of an Ebola vaccine candidate. This clears the way for large scale clinical trials in West Africa in the weeks ahead, according to the White House.

The disease had ravaged much of West Africa since August, killing thousands. Obama again said the disease must be fought in West Africa to prevent future isolated cased in the United States.

Obama said that helping to fight the disease is a test of the national character. Further, he said that the funding request “can’t get caught up in normal politics.”

“We need to extinguish this disease,” Obama said. “It is not something we can just manage. We need to stamp it out.”

Obama was briefed earlier Tuesday by White House Ebola Response Coordinator Ron Klain.

The United States has expanded the network of hospitals to deal with Ebola from just eight hospitals to currently 53 beds in 35 designated treatment centers across the country. This happened after the Department of Health and Human Services worked with several states.

The testing capacity has gone from 13 labs in August to 42 labs in 36 states currently.

WASHINGTON: ‘ PRIVATE MEETING OF REPUBLICAN LEADERS CAN SEE CHANCE TO SEIZE CONTROL OF SENATE ‘

#AceWorldNews – WASHINGTON – October 30 – In a rare moment of calm between crises over Ebola and Islamic State, a group of congressmen gathered on Capitol Hill to discuss something few Americans have had as much cause to contemplate: the outcome of next Tuesday’s midterm elections.

The private meeting of top Republican leaders from the House of Representatives concluded there was a golden opportunity.

If opinion polling is to be believed, their party is poised not just to hang on to its majority in the lower chamber, but possibly seize control of the Senate, too, uniting both houses of Congress against a Democratic president for the first time in 20 years.

According to one participant at the meeting, held last month, most of those present urged a cautious response, such as aiming to pass moderate economic and tax reform legislation with bipartisan support and daring the White House to use its veto to oppose the new Republican agenda.

Others in the party favour more combative assaults on Barack Obama’s healthcare reform and his environmental concerns over the Keystone oil pipeline, which he is likely to block.

Either way, they argue, the White House loses. “He’ll become the president of no,” another GOP congressman confidently told the Guardian, revelling in the prospect of reversing the insult that dogged House Republicans when they were the ones blocking Democratic legislative efforts.
