UN: Rouhani’s First Year as Iranian President Saw Most Executions in Over a Decade - The Tower

UN: Rouhani’s First Year as Iranian President Saw Most Executions in Over a Decade - The Tower | Politics and Business | Scoop.it
Ahmed Shaheed, the United Nations Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Islamic Republic of Iran, issued an unedited report (.pdf) today that “provides a picture of the prevailing situation” of human rights  in Iran. This is his first report since October 2013. One of the areas examined by Shaheed is the “Right to Life.” At least 753 individuals were reportedly executed in 2014 (the highest total recorded …
Dave Cottrell's insight:

Only fools and liars would call Rouhani or any leader in Iran a "moderate."  Even those who "run" for office in this farce of a "democracy" must first be approved by the Ayatollah.

Hamas Embraces the Path of the Islamic State (ISIS)

Hamas Embraces the Path of the Islamic State (ISIS) | Politics and Business | Scoop.it
Hamas adopts the Islamic State’s terror methods of stabbings and vehicular attacks. -Hamas Embraces the Path of the Islamic State (ISIS)
Dave Cottrell's insight:

In a world of lies and counter-lies, the Muslim on the street is left to make his own choices.

"Another very important consideration for these organizations is that the Islamic Caliphate exerts great influence beyond the borders of Syria and Iraq. In his speech proclaiming the caliphate, Baghdadi did not request the Islamic organizations’ backing. As caliph he sees himself as representing all Muslims in the world, and he calls on them directly to swear allegiance to him and embark on jihad. Baghdadi thereby exerts influence over the other Islamic organizations; he seeks recruits for the army of the caliphate and hopes to create branches within the Muslim states that will work to overthrow existing governments. - See more at: http://jcpa.org/article/hamas-embraces-path-of-islamic-state/#sthash.cxQIbbbv.dpuf";

Radical Leftists Win Election In Greece - Future Of Eurozone In Serious Jeopardy

Radical Leftists Win Election In Greece - Future Of Eurozone In Serious Jeopardy | Politics and Business | Scoop.it
Radical leftists have been catapulted to power in Greece, and that means that the European financial crisis has just entered a dangerous new phase.  Syriza, which is actually an acronym for “Coalition of the Radical Left” in Greek, has 36 percent of the total vote with approximately 80 percent of the polling stations reporting.  The [...]
Dave Cottrell's insight:

What is going on in Greece could soon be happening in the rest of the world.  The Greek population is so desperate that they will take what was once considered an unimaginable risk and vote against their creditors and the EU.

"So why would the Greeks risk pushing Europe to the brink of utter disaster?

Well, it is because economic conditions in Greece have been absolutely hellish for years and they are sick and tired of it.

For example, the BBC is reporting that many married women have become so desperate to find work in Greece that they are literally begging to work in brothels…

Climate Change Researcher Reveals The Cold Truth About 'Global Warming'

Climate Change Researcher Reveals The Cold Truth About 'Global Warming' | Politics and Business | Scoop.it
John Casey, a former White House space program advisor, discovered evidence — buried right in the government's own environmental studies — that destroys their argument for 'global warming.' John has proven, once and for all, 'global warming'is a sham. Click here to learn more about the Cold Truth Initiative.
Dave Cottrell's insight:

'As The Wall Street Journal reported, “The assertion that 97% of scientists believe that climate change is a man-made, urgent problem is a fiction.”

When further review was done, it was discovered that a mere 1% of scientists believe human activity is causing most of the climate change.

In outrage, a petition was signed by more than 31,000 scientists that states “there is no convincing scientific evidence that human release of . . . carbon dioxide, methane, or other greenhouse gases is causing or will, in the foreseeable future, cause catastrophic heating of the Earth's atmosphere and disruption of the Earth's climate."'

CHARLES HURT: America faces most dangerous two years in 150 years

CHARLES HURT: America faces most dangerous two years in 150 years | Politics and Business | Scoop.it
If President Obama suffered a “shellacking” in the 2010 elections, then what he endured Tuesday night was nothing short of a vicious gangland beatdown the likes of which have rarely been seen before in the history of electoral politics.
Dave Cottrell's insight:

Here is one political pundit I agree with, while at the same time hope is very wrong.  Unfortunately, Mr. Obama has continually shown that he has no problem using executive orders, even when they break the law (which eventually the Supreme Court confirms) and trample the constitution.  The only answer may be an unfortunate one, to impeach.  Let's hope that never becomes necessary.  The USA is supposed to be a democracy, not a tyranny.  The people have spoken, and the president must truly listen and obey their will.

At least two people are dead and and unknown number wounded in Iran in a blast at the Parchin military nuclear site.
Dave Cottrell's insight:

One must wonder why a nuclear enrichment facility used "only for peaceful purposes" is run by the army and has material in it that produced an accidental blast big enough to take out windows nine miles away...

 

"“It is important to emphasize that these kinds of tests can have no ‘dual use’ explanation, since the only possible purpose of such internal neutron sources is to ignite the nuclear chain reaction in nuclear weapons,” Steintz added."

For by the end of its annual legislative session next month, the General Assembly will have adopted a total of 22 resolutions condemning Israel—and only four on the rest of the world combined. The hypocrisy, selectivity, and politicization are staggering."

Ferguson fallout: Hillary Clinton, Ted Cruz, other 2016 hopefuls sidestep crisis, leave it to Obama | Politics and Business | Scoop.it
Four months of tension and violence in Ferguson, Missouri, may have lit a fuse under 24-hour television news, but the wall-to-wall coverage is attracting a far more muted response from those who aspire to be the next American president.
Dave Cottrell's insight:

'“Elizabeth Vega, a major agitator on the scene in Ferguson, spent Monday night leading an anti-police rally where she fired up the crowd into chanting, ‘F– the police!’ When it was all over, she walked back to where she’d parked her car and discovered it had been stolen. Wonder who she reported that crime to. Her friendly neighborhood community organizer?” Mr. Huckabee said.

“The most absurd protesters in America are all those who demand justice while baying for mob rule, who claim to oppose the unjust targeting of the innocent while burning and looting small businesses with no connection to the case and who posture as champions of African-Americans while destroying businesses owned by African-Americans, that serve African-Americans and that employ African-Americans,” he added.'
