Dumped By Obama, The U.S. Just Lost Another Key Ally To Russia (Allen West)

Dumped By Obama, The U.S. Just Lost Another Key Ally To Russia – Allen West


What happens if you’re that guy who really likes this girl but she keeps dismissing you? Does there come a time when you finally realize this specific girl will never want you? And then comes a girl, maybe not so gorgeous but she’s attracted to you and sees you as a great guy. What do you do? Do you keep hanging around hoping the dream girl finally realizes you do exist – after you’ve spent forever conveying your desire? Or do you find a relationship with someone willing to be with you?

So, imagine how this little scenario plays out in the world of foreign policy.

As reported by the Jerusalem Post, “A delegation of Iraqi Kurds will visit Moscow in April to discuss Russian weapons supplies, the RIA Novosti news agency on Thursday cited the head of an Iraqi Kurd representation office in Russia as saying.

RIA on Wednesday quoted the Russian consulate in Iraq as saying Russia has already supplied weapons to Iraqi Kurds and that the first shipment had arrived on March 14. It said the shipment had included five Zu-23-2 anti-aircraft cannons and 20,000 shells for the cannons.

Having been in Kurdistan, I can attest that, outside of Israel, you will not find more pro-American, pro-Western people in the Middle East. They wholeheartedly have assisted U.S. forces in Iraq with the defeat of Saddam’s forces as well as Islamic jihadists. They were all in with the new Iraqi government and constitution, yet, with the coming of one Barack Obama, they’ve once again been dismissed.

As a Member of the U.S. Congress I hosted representatives of the Kurdish Regional Government in my office on several occasions and attended many of their sponsored events.

You want an effective ground force to combat ISIS, the spread of Islamic jihadism, and check the hegemonic designs of Iran? There’s no one better than the Kurds. The problem is that while the Kurds were requesting support from the United States, they were rejected. The weapons systems aid was provided to the central Iraq government in Baghdad, and guess what? They were distributed mainly to the Shiite elements, who in turn quickly dropped them as they withdrew, ran away, and then were confiscated by ISIS.

The return on investment for these weapons would have been much higher if they’d been delivered directly to the Kurds. And even worse, after Barack Obama achieved permission from the closet Islamist, his dear friend Turkish President Erdogan, for the use of U.S. military air basing, the Kurds then found themselves being bombed by Turkish forces. These are the same Turkish forces who somehow turned a blind eye as ISIS fighters flowed out of Turkey into northern Iraq and Syria.

So, like the fella who’s been rejected by the girl he wanted, the fella is looking elsewhere to the girl who’s said, “I like you.” Enter Russia and Vladimir Putin…and we all know Putin has some issues with Erdogan and Turkey after they shot down his aircraft.

This week we heard about Russia conducting a partial pullout of forces in Syria. Needless to say it appears Putin is building his coalition in the region. We know Egypt’s President el-Sisi has visited Russia – he’s been rejected by the same girl. Last year, right before the U.N General Assembly, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visited Russia – he has been rejected by the same girl. So one has to ask, when will Jordan’s leader King Abdullah court the new”girl?”

The game of foreign policy is being lost by the United States under the presidency of Barack Obama. And these nations who were staunch allies and supporters are realizing they must court others. We’re watching the impact and influence of America slip away. Sure, progressive socialists will say, we’re more liked now – but I will counter that we’re not respected, by friend or foe.

We were once the desired date, but now we’re turning into something completely undesirable. We’re not the trusted ally we once were. And thanks to a nebulous and failed foreign policy folks are doing following the advice of Smokey Robinson and the Miracles: “You better shop around.”



Amount Of Toxic Orange Sludge Dumped Into Animas River By EPA Three Times Original Estimate

EPA: Amount Of Mine Waste Water 3 Times Original Estimate – KUSA



The Environmental Protection Agency said Sunday the amount of waste water that spilled from the Gold King Mine and turned the Animas River orange was three times its original estimate.

Shaun McGrath, administrator from the EPA Region 8 Office, said three million gallons of the toxic water laced with heavy metals spilled into Cement Creek last Wednesday. McGrath said the agency updated its initial estimate of one million gallons after checking a U.S.G.S. stream gauge on Cement Creek.

Sunday marked five days since an EPA team mistakenly released the waste water from the abandoned Gold King Mine in Silverton. The orange plume was still moving at about 500 feet per minute, thinning as it reached areas near Farmington, New Mexico.

“These problems happen all the time,” said Mark Williams, a geography professor at the University of Colorado. “Almost every abandoned mine has the potential for that situation.”

Williams is expert on mountain hydrology and hydrochemistry. He said acid mine drainage happens at other sites in Colorado, and he’s worked with the EPA to stop it. At sites in Creede and Rico, Williams said he used tracers, fluorescent dyes and various salts, to figure out how areas of the mine are connected.

“We learn about the hydrology,” Williams said. “How the water gets into the mine and try to turn it off or move it somewhere else where it’s not a problem.”

For now, the problem is still flowing down the Animas River in southern Colorado. Sunday afternoon, the city of Durango and La Plata County declared a State of Local Emergency.

“This action has been taken due to the serious nature of the incident and to convey the grave concerns that local elected officials have to ensure that all appropriate levels of state and federal resources are brought to bear to assist our community not only in actively managing this tragic incident but also to recover from it,” said Joe Kerby, La Plata County Manager.

The EPA said Sunday crews were treating the discharge from the Gold Creek Mine in a series of settling ponds. The agency said it was raising the acidity of the water and adding different solutions to break down the metals in the ponds.

Mike King with the Department of Natural Resources said Gov. John Hickenlooper verbally declared the waste spill a state disaster, and that he would make $500,000 available for resources.

There’s no estimation for when the river may reopen. There’s a concern that toxic sediment could sink into the bottom of the riverbed — something that could potentially be brought back up when a storm comes months or even years down the line.

The EPA has made bottled water available for those who aren’t on the city of Durango’s water supply.




Horror At Mass Sterilization Camp In India As Women Are Dumped Unconscious In A Field After Painful Operation

Horror At Mass Sterilization Camp In India As Women Are Dumped Unconscious In A Field After Painful Operation – Daily Mail

Dozens of women were abandoned unconscious in a field after being sterilized at a rural health center in India.

Two doctors carried 106 sterilization operations in a single day at government-run Manikchak Rural Hospital in West Bengal as part of mass ‘health drive’.

The patients should have been kept under observation for at least three hours, but with only 30 beds at the hospital reserved for women, they were left on the pavement with no medical assistance or protection against infections.

As many as 110 women were dumped on an open field for hours after a mass sterilization program in West Bengal’s Malda district

The doctors at the government-run hospital are now under investigation and at least one health officer has been suspended.

The ill-equipped hospital has a total of 60 beds, only half of these are available to women, the rest to men.

The hospital’s two doctors – Dr Amal Krishna Pal and Dr Joydip Majumder – carried out the procedures on over 100 women with the help of a gynaecologist, Dr Purnendu Rang, who was called from the nearby Ratua rural healthcare center.

The sterilization drive broke a number of rules regarding health and safety procedures, drastically overstepping the limit of 25 sterilizations per day and ignoring the three hours of observation.

After the surgical procedure, the doctors asked the helpers to move every patient to the adjacent field, a majority of the women were still unconscious.

Disgrace: The image show women lying in a field outside the hospital with no medical aids and with only their relatives to help

The patients were carried out and casually dumped under the open sky in the hands of their relatives. Unable to bear the pain in the absence of proper care, some of them fainted.

Many of the patients were sent off on rickshaws, though they were not in a state to make any journey.

A district health official said the hospital has no ambulance.

‘We all know there is a severe risk of morbidity during sterilization and the question whether this has been taken care of or not,’ health activist Ratnaboli Ray told NDTV.

One of the patients, Pinki Mondal of north Chandipur village, fell off the rickshaw as it collided with a matador. She was rushed back to the center with critical injuries and was referred to the district hospital.

Risk: The images from NDTV show an unconscious woman being lifted onto a blanket outside the hospital after her surgery

No care: Hospital workers have lifter a woman off a stretcher and are placing her on the pavement, leaving her unaided post-surgery

Local health officials acknowledged that the patients’ treatment was shockingly insufficient, and a full report has been requested from the hospital.

Malda’s chief medical officer of health (CMOH), Bidhan Mishra, said: ‘We have come to know about the incident. It is not acceptable. We have ordered an inquiry and asked the hospital authorities to submit the report in the next 48 hours.’

Mishra, however, claimed that the Manikchak health center has six doctors, including Dr Rang.

Bengal’s women and child development minister Sabitri Mitra, who is also the local MLA, said: ‘This irresponsible act will not be tolerated. The CMOH is looking into it and necessary action would be taken.’

Mitra said a section of doctors were deliberately trying to malign the government’s image.

Former Democrat Presidential Candidate John Edwards Indicted And Dumped – Gateway Pundit

Former Senator and two time democrat presidential candidate John Edwards was indicted this morning by a North Carolina grand jury.

The popular democrat was cheating on his wife Elizabeth while she was going through chemotherapy. Elizabeth Edwards passed away last year.

Leftist hero John Edwards was charged with four counts of illegal campaign contributions, one count of conspiracy and one count of false statements.

The LA Times reported:

A North Carolina grand jury has indicted former Sen. John Edwards on criminal campaign finance violations in connection with a sex scandal.

Edwards, the Democratic nominee for vice president in 2004 and a candidate for president in 2004 and 2008, was charged with four counts of illegal campaign contributions, one count of conspiracy and one count of false statements. The charges stem from a years-long investigation into whether Edwards used money from two supporters to cover up an affair with Rielle Hunter, a former campaign videographer with whom he had a child.

Prosecutors say the money from Edwards’ supporters to Hunter constituted campaign donations because it furthered his political career. Edwards attorneys consider that an improper interpretation of campaign finance laws, and that the case is a matter for the Federal Election Commission, not the courts.

“John Edwards has done wrong in his life – and he knows it better than anyone – but he did not break the law,” his attorney, former White House Counsel Gregory Craig, told the Los Angeles Times last week. “The government’s theory is wrong on the facts and wrong on the law. It is novel and untested. There is no civil or criminal precedent for such a prosecution.”

Edwards, 57, reportedly was offered deals to lessen criminal penalties in return for admission of guilt, but he has refused to plead guilty to a felony offense.

I’m saving my sympathy for Edward’s children.

Earlier this week Edwards was dumped by his mistress.

The National Enquirer reported:

Desperate to stay out of jail, bad boy politician JOHN EDWARDS begged his mistress and mother of his love child Rielle Hunter to cover up for him, but she flatly refused, sources say.

In a bombshell exclusive hitting newsstands, The ENQUIRER reports a stunning new development in the ongoing Edwards saga, has resulted in Rielle dumping him in his darkest hour.

In a web exclusive preview, we can report that a close source said, “Rielle snapped at him, ‘I can’t help you! My only concern is raising our daughter.’

“John felt as if she’d stabbed him in the back.”
