Yellen Will Reverse Taper and Increase QE

Report: Senior al Qaeda facilitator 'back on the street' in Iran

The Long War Journal

A senior al Qaeda operative based in Iran and known as Yasin al Suri (a.k.a. Ezedin Abdel Aziz Khalil) is "more active than ever" and facilitating al Qaeda's global operations, Al Jazeerareports.
Al Suri's role as al Qaeda's point man inside Iran was first exposed by the US Treasury and State Departments in 2011. In December of that year, the US government began offering a $10 million reward for information leading to al Suri's capture.
After the US government's revelations, the Iranian government detained al Suri. This led al Qaeda to replace him with another seasoned terrorist, Muhsin al Fadhli, who took over as leader of the Iran-based network.
But now, according to US government officials who spoke with Al Jazeera, al Suri is back in the game and even facilitating al Qaeda's operations inside Syria.
"As head al Qaeda facilitator in Iran, al Suri is responsible for overseeing al Qaeda efforts to transfer experienced operatives and leaders from Pakistan to Syria, organizing and maintaining routes by which new recruits can travel to Syria via Turkey and assisting in the movement of al Qaeda external operatives to the West," an unnamed State Department official told Al Jazeera.
A US Treasury Department official confirmed the revelation, according to Al Jazeera. "He's an al Qaeda operative, Al Nusrah is an al Qaeda affiliate, and we know he's moving money and extremists into Syria for al Qaeda elements there, so I think you can draw that conclusion," the Treasury official said.
Al Suri operates under an agreement that was struck between the Iranian regime and al Qaeda years ago. He first began working inside Iran in 2005.
It is not clear why the Iranian government would allow al Suri to act as a facilitator for al Qaeda's operations inside Syria. Al Qaeda and Iran are on opposite sides of the Syrian war.
Iran is backing Bashar al Assad's regime, a longtime ally of the mullahs, in the bloody sectarian conflict. Al Qaeda's two official branches, including the Al Nusrah Front, as well as al Qaeda's allies, are on the other side, battling Iranian operatives, Assad's forces and proxies. The emir of Al Nusrah, Abu Muhammad al Julani, has verbally attacked Iran and Shiites in general. Other senior al Qaeda jihadists have called for attacks against Shiite-led governments in response to the Syrian conflict. And an al Qaeda-linked group has claimed responsibility for an attack against the Iranian embassy in Lebanon.
The Iranian regime, however, has mastered duplicity and may have unknown reasons for keeping tabs on al Qaeda's operations. Al Qaeda has also been willing to work with Iran onmultiple occasions since the early 1990s, despite the two sides' fundamentally different theologies and sometime vehement disagreements.
Al Qaeda's Iran-based network a "core pipeline"
The US government has repeatedly exposed al Qaeda's Iran-based network in a series of terrorist designations and other official filings. And in May 2013, the State Department notedthat this network was tied to al Qaeda's operations inside Syria.
In July 2011, the US Treasury Department designated several members of the network, saying it was headed by al Suri and operates "under an agreement between al Qaeda and the Iranian government."
Several months later, in December 2011, the State and Treasury Departments announced a $10 million reward for information concerning al Suri's whereabouts. "Al Suri's network has served as a financial conduit, collecting funds from donors throughout the Gulf and moving those funds via Iran to al Qaeda's leadership in Afghanistan and Iraq," the Treasury Department's Assistant Director of Terrorism and Financial Intelligence, Eytan Fisch, said at the time. "Al Suri's network also serves as the core pipeline for al Qaeda to funnel operatives and facilitators from the Middle East to Afghanistan and Pakistan," Fisch added.
In February 2012, the Treasury Department designated the Iranian Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS) as a terrorist sponsoring entity for, among other things, supporting al Qaeda and al Qaeda in Iraq's operations.
After Yasin al Suri was replaced, at least temporarily, as the head of al Qaeda's network in Iran, the Treasury Department revealed that his replacement was a Kuwaiti named Muhsin al Fadhli. In an October 2012 terrorist designation, Treasury also said that al Fadhli's deputy is Adel Radi Saker al Wahabi al Harbi, a Saudi who is on the kingdom's most-wanted list.
In its Country Reports on Terrorism 2012, the State Department said: "Iran allowed AQ facilitators Muhsin al Fadhli and Adel Radi Saqr al Wahabi al Harbi to operate a core facilitation pipeline through Iran, enabling AQ to move funds and fighters to South Asia and to Syria."
The Iran-based network moves al Qaeda "external operatives to the West"
The State Department official quoted by Al Jazeera says that al Suri's network assists "in the movement of al Qaeda external operatives to the West." The Long War Journal has documented two cases in recent years in which a terrorist plot in the West has been tied to al Suri's Iran-based operations.
Some of the al Qaeda terrorists selected to take part in a 2010 plot against European citiesused al Suri's facilitation network to transit to and from northern Pakistan. The plot, which would have involved Mumbai-style attacks, was thwarted, and afterward leaders of the cellwere harbored inside Iran for a time.
In April 2013, Canadian authorities arrested two terrorist suspects who were allegedly plotting to derail a train running from the US into Canada. Royal Canadian Mounted Police Assistant Commissioner James Malizia said that the pair received "support from al Qaeda elements located in Iran" in the form of "direction and guidance." The al Qaeda operatives who supported the operation are reportedly based in the Iranian city of Zahedan, which is one of the main hubs for al Suri and his operatives.
Egyptian officials have alleged that still another plot, targeting the US Embassy in Cairo and other Western interests, involved al Qaeda's Iran-based network. The putative May 2013 plot was tied to a terrorist known as Dawood al Assadi, which is one of the aliases used by Muhsin al Fadhli. Egyptian officials also said that members of the terrorist cell responsible for the plotwere in contact with Muhammad Jamal al Kashef, a longtime subordinate to al Qaeda emir Ayman al Zawahiri, as well as with other members of Jamal's network.
Al Qaeda's Iran-based network continues to operate despite the war in Syria.
And now, according to Al Jazeera's sources in the US government, the head of that network is operational once again.

SHOW ME THE POO!

Bare naked Islam

LONDON: Sharia police harass woman in the park walking her dog near the Muslim NO-GO Zone of Tower Hamlets. Hilarity ensues.

sharia-zone-edited
According to the woman, ”A dog walk in Victoria Park goes horribly wrong when a Muslim Tower Hamlets Council Enforcement Officer accuses me of letting my dog defacate in the park and not clearing it up. It’s New Years Day and we take the dogs for a morning walk. My dog poos, I bag it, bin it and continue our walk. About 20 to 30 minutes later, a Muslim sharia enforcement officer accuses me of failing to remove a dog poo, but but refuses to show me where the alleged unpicked up poo is.  Instead, he demands my details repeatedly and reads me my rights. He wants to give me a ticket and/or have me arrested.” 
About 10 minutes of ‘SHOW ME THE POO’ later, he declares “The poo was here, but it is gone now.” The sharia officer then wonders off looking at the floor and in an area nearby he does indeed locate a poo. Part 2 begins. ”Right then,” I say “I don’t believe this poo has anything to do with me, but because you do,  I’ll remove it.” We were then followed around and out of the park by the sharia patrol officer and two more of his Muslim enforcement colleagues, while he continued to radio for Police back-up and continued to harass me.

ISIS suicide team assaults Iraqi ministry

The Long War Journal

A suicide assault team likely from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Sham, al Qaeda's branch inside Iraq, killed at least 18 people after attempting to storm the Transportation Ministry today.
A heavily armed team of six suicide bombers "took a number of hostages .. and killed nine of them inside the building, which was used to receive visiting delegations," Reuters reported. "It was not immediately known where the other eight victims died."
Iraqi security forces responded and killed the suicide assault team in a firefight. At least one policeman was killed while battling the insurgents, the National Iraqi News Agency reported, and 50 people are said to have been wounded during the assault.
While no group has claimed credit for today's attack, the ISIS is currently the only group in Iraq staging suicide assaults of this magnitude in the Iraqi capital. Ansar al Islam (or Ansar al Sunnah), another al Qaeda linked group that operates in Iraq, occasionally deploys suicide bombers against Iraqi security forces and civilian targets, but has yet to claim what the ISIS calls a "storming operation."
The suicide assault, or coordinated attack using multiple suicide bombers and an assault team, is a tactic that is frequently used in Iraq by the ISIS. Suicide assaults are also commonly executed by al Qaeda and its branches and allied jihadist groups in Afghanistan, Syria, Yemen, Pakistan, Somalia, Egypt, and Nigeria.
Today's suicide assault in Baghdad is the latest in a series of brazen attacks by the ISIS that has enabled the group to overtly seize control of areas of Anbar province in western Iraq. The situation in Anbar began to spiral out of the Iraqi government's control after the ISIS executed a complex suicide operation that decapitated the leadership of the 7th Iraqi Army Division in the town of Rutbah in December 2013. The ISIS laid a trap that killed the commanding general and 17 members of his staff and security detail. The 7th Iraqi Army Division is primarily responsible for security in Anbar.
After the attack, the ISIS took advantage of the political dispute between Sunnis and the Shia-dominated government of Prime Minister Nouri al Maliki. As soon as Maliki ordered the Army to withdraw from cities in Anbar, the ISIS moved forces into the cities. The ISIS remains in control of the city of Fallujah and parts of Ramadi, the provincial capital of Anbar, after storming the cities at the beginning of January. The ISIS controls Fallujah in conjunction with sympathetic Sunni tribes as well as tribes that oppose Maliki. Several towns in Anbar,including Karmah, Saqlawiyah, and Khaladiyah are also controlled by the ISIS. The Iraqi government is hesitant to launch a military operation against the ISIS and is instead encouraging the Sunni tribes to battle the al Qaeda group.
Across the border, in Syria, the ISIS controls territory along the Euphrates River Valley all the way to the provincial capital of Raqqah. Despite an ongoing dispute which has often broken out into open warfare with the Al Nusrah Front and allied Islamists groups such as the Islamic Front, the ISIS remains a formidable forces on both sides of the border.

A Texas Story

foxmuldars blog
January 26, 2014

One day, a very gentle Texas lady was driving across a high bridge in Austin. As she neared the top of the bridge, she noticed a young man fixin ("fixin" in Texas means: has the means or abilities to take action) to jump...
She stopped her car, rolled down the window, and said, "Please don't jump! Think of your dear mother and father."
He replied, "My mom and dad are both dead; I'm going to jump."
She said, "Well, think of your sweet wife and precious children...."
He replied, "I'm not married, and I don't have any kids."
She said, "Well, then you just remember the Alamo."
He replied, ''What's the Alamo?''
She replied, ''Well bless your heart ...just go ahead and jump, you little ignorant Yankee Democrat Bastard!''

Egypt to Hamas: We're coming for you

WND
By Ryan Jones, Israel Today
In a scenario Israelis would have found too far-fetched to believe just a few years ago, Egypt is set to become the Jewish state’s new best friend in the fight against Hamas terrorism.
Having finally put down the Muslim Brotherhood after its hijacking of the 2011 pro-democracy revolution, the Egyptian military has been making not-so-subtle threats against the Palestinian terror group.
Hamas is an offshoot of and closely aligned with the Muslim Brotherhood. When senior Muslim Brotherhood official Mohammed Morsi briefly became Egypt’s president, Hamas-ruled Gaza erupted in celebration.
The new military rulers in Cairo know that they cannot be truly done with the Muslim Brotherhood without eradicating the Hamas threat, too.
Since last summer, the Egyptian army has destroyed more than 1,200 tunnels running under the Sinai-Gaza border, dealing a severe blow to the Hamas economy.
Now, officials in Cairo say the regime intends to launch a series of campaigns to undermine Hamas’ legitimacy in Palestinian society and put the group on the run.
Egypt will reportedly begin bolstering Hamas’ rivals in Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah faction, while also instigating in Gaza the same kind of street rallies that brought down Morsi’s government.
Hamas officials in Gaza called the Egyptian threats “delusional.”
Meanwhile, Israel is remaining relatively mum on the development. But during a press conference in Jerusalem last week, Dov Weissglas, former chief of staff to Ariel Sharon, said Israelis had to “pinch themselves” to make sure they weren’t dreaming when first reading the news of Egypt’s shift.

Violent video: Ukraine rioters brutally beat police, storm local admin building

Only Kids can be this smart

 If a child at 10 years of age can see whats going on why is there still too many who don't!!   MADE ME SMILE IT DID!!!

I was eating breakfast with my 10 year old Granddaughter and asked her,

"What day is tomorrow?";  She said "It's President's Day! "

She is a smart kid.  I asked "What does President's Day mean ?"
I was waiting for something about Washington or Lincoln....etc.

She replied, "President's Day is when President Obama steps out of the White House,
and if he sees his shadow, we have 4 more years of Bull Shit !"

You know it hurts when hot coffee spurts out of your nose !   :-)

That adds up to a total of 8 years of Bullshit from the BS artist in the Black House. 

THE ‘EARTH-SHATTERING’ NEWS RUSH LIMBAUGH SAYS THE MEDIA IGNORED, BUT YOU NEED TO KNOW

Lt. Colonel Allen West says: “Islam has immigrated into America, and like a cancer, is spreading and attempting to take over its host”

BareNakedIslam

The stealth jihad of Islamic immigration.

We often hear that “America is a land of immigrants,” especially from those advocating a path to citizenship for people who have defied our sovereign rule of law and are here illegally.

Trabalho-dos-grafiteiros-Os-Gêmeos-em-Boston-Eua-11

I recall the words of President Theodore Roosevelt who believed no man should be discriminated against because of where he was born, but insisted any immigrant who arrives on our shores should become an American in terms of faith, allegiance and language, “If he tries to keep segregated with men of his own origin and separated from the rest of America, then he isn’t doing his part as an American. We have room for but one soul loyalty, and that is loyalty to the American people.”

Contrast that with the New York scene Daniel Greenfield writes about in Frontpage Magazine:

Walk along Church Avenue and turn east onto McDonald Avenue and you will see where the old standards of working class Brooklyn give way to mosques and grocery stores selling goat meat. Mosques grow like mushrooms in basements, cell phone stores offer easy ways to wire money back to Bangladesh and old men glare at interlopers, especially if they are infidel women. This is where Mohammed Siddiquee settled a dispute the old-fashioned way by beheading his landlord.

A creeping sharia has immigrated into our America and like a cancer is spreading and attempting to take over its “host.” Greenfield notes that New York City has always had its micro communities of culture…But Islam is not just a culture and the cultures who carry its baggage with them to the old worlds and the new are not toting it along like another ethnic food, a dialect or a national holiday.

Coexistx800_lightbox

As those of us not under the spell of political correctness know, Islam does not coexist. And in its “Al Hijra” views immigration, as Greenfield says, “a form of supremacist manifest destiny to colonize the Dar al-Harb (the non-Islamic world) and subdue it with sheer numbers or sheer force” -– just look at Europe if you need proof.

Greenfield points to Jamaica in Queens, where Quazi Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis plotted the mass murder of Americans and the bombing of the Federal Reserve, hoping to “destroy America.”

At this hour, no one in Little Korea, Little Italy, Little Brazil, Brighton Beach or Koreatown is plotting to destroy America so that his religion can rule the world. That is what sets the Little Bangladeshes, Little Pakistans, and Little Mogadishus apart from every other immigrant group whose dreams for the future are not overshadowed by the iron dream of Islam.

Tragically, US Attorney General Eric Holder is seeking to ban the use of religion and national origin in terrorist investigations, even including instances involving national security. I will say it again, when tolerance becomes a one-way street it leads to cultural suicide. And neighborhood by neighborhood, it is a slow, dripping death. Dear God, have we so forgotten Teddy Roosevelt’s admonition?

Supreme Court grants temporary reprieve from contraceptive mandate

POLITICOL
Jan 24, 2014
The Obama administration cannot enforce the Affordable Care Act’s contraception coverage requirements against a Catholic nuns’ order for the time being, if the nuns tell the government they object to providing that coverage, the Supreme Court ruled Friday afternoon.
The Supreme Court’s action could defuse for the time being a showdown between religious employers and the federal government over the procedures for providing contraceptive coverage to employees of hospitals, nursing homes and other entities run by religious groups.

In a one-page order issued by the court without any noted dissent, the justices said that — at least for now — the Little Sisters of the Poor did not have to follow the procedure the Obama Administration established for religious groups to escape complying with ACA-related rules requiring that employer-provided coverage include contraceptives.
Instead of filling out a government-issued form, the nuns can simply send the Department of Health and Human Services a written notice that the order is a religious organization with “religious objections to providing coverage for contraceptive services.”
The nuns, who run nursing homes, had refused to fill out the federal exemption form, arguing that doing so would violate their religious beliefs by triggering the provisions of contraceptives by others.
Lawyers for the Little Sisters hailed the court’s order and said the nuns will take the option the justices outlined. Their actual appeal of the requirement is pending in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 10th Circuit.
“This order grants all the protection that the Little Sisters of the Poor and the other organizations in the case need while the courts are deciding their case,” said Kevin Walsh, a University of Richmond Law professor and an attorney for the nuns. “We are happy to satisfy the condition in the Supreme Court’s order, which is to say something that we have been saying from the beginning of the case and that the government already knows.”
Daniel Blomberg, a Becket Fund attorney also representing the Little Sisters, said the Supreme Court’s requirement to send a note to HHS demonstrates that the government’s form amounts to a “permission slip” to access to contraception.
“The Supreme Court saw through it,” Blomberg said. “They’ve given an example of how it can be done nationwide.”
Two religious health care benefit providers – Christian Brothers Services and Christian Brothers Employee Benefits Trust – joined the Little Sisters in their suit. The order applies to them as well, meaning the ruling could extend to more than 400 non-profit organizations.
The Justice Department issued only a brief response to the order. “As the order indicates, this injunction applies only to the plaintiffs and is not a ruling on the merits of their case,” a spokesperson said. “And plaintiffs have always been eligible for an accommodation from the contraceptive coverage requirement.”
Supporters of the contraception coverage requirement said they were not overly concerned that the ruling signals where the court may head if and when the case works its way back to the Supreme Court.
“Although [we are] disappointed in this temporary order, the court emphasized that the order ‘should not be construed as an expression of the court’s views on the merits,’” said Sharon Levin, director of federal reproductive health policy at the National Women’s Law Center. “We are confident once the merits in this case are fully considered by the 10th Circuit, that it will once again uphold the birth control regulations as it did in December.”
If the nuns send a notice meeting the Supreme Court’s requirements, the government will be blocked from taking any enforcement action against the religious group at least until a federal appeals court acts on the nuns’ appeal, the court’s order said.
The justices also said in Friday’s order that the Little Sisters could get relief pending the outcome of their appeal without sending a copy of their opt-out notice to their insurance carrier — something the religious group said it would not do because of concerns that could also lead to employees receiving contraceptive coverage.
Last month, a federal district court judge in Colorado ruled that it would “not substantially burden” the nuns’ religious beliefs to complete the government form or send it to the firm that administers their insurance.
The Denver-based 10th Circuit Court refused to stay the nuns’ duty to comply with the regulations, which took effect Jan. 1.
On New Year’s Eve, Justice Sonia Sotomayor gave the religious order an emergency stay while the court considered how to respond to the group’s application for a stay pending appeal.
The Supreme Court has not yet agreed to hear the Little Sisters’ case or any other brought by a non-profit religious group challenging the Obamacare contraceptive regulations.
However, the justices are scheduled to hear arguments in March in a pair of cases in which for-profit businesses are seeking to escape the coverage requirements because the owners of the firms say providing such coverage would violate their religious beliefs.

If You See These Women Near Sochi, Russia ....

The Jawa Report
January 21, 2014

The thing is, Sochi is actually right smack dab in the middle of the Caucuses. The fact that the city is mostly made up of Christian Slavs & not Turkic Muslims has more to do with Soviet ethnic cleansing than with its location. I just hope the bribes to the Olympic Committee were sufficiently large for them to overlook the minor detail of locating a dozen miles from what is essentially a war zone.
Thanks to The Jester.

Putin & Russia Desperately Search for Black Widow Terrorist

Barracuda Brigage
January 21, 2014

 Police in Sochi have launched an urgent search for a possible female suicide bomber who may have already made it past the ring of security set up for the Olympic Games.

Hotel employees in Sochi told ABC News that posters with pictures and descriptions of a 22-year-old woman from nearby Dagestan were distributed over the weekend by authorities and a similar flyer was also seen posted at Sochi's airport.

A spokesperson for the U.S. Olympic Committee reacted to the revelation by saying that the safety of Team USA is their "top priority."

"As is always the case, we are working with the U.S. Department of State, the local organizers and the relevant law enforcement agencies in an effort to ensure that our delegation and other Americans traveling to Sochi are safe," spokesperson Patrick Sandusky said.

The woman featured on the wanted posters is identified as Ruzanna Ibragimova, using the nickname Salima, the widow of a militant reportedly killed in a shoot-out with police last year in Dagestan.

She is described as being affiliated with the Caucasus Emirate, the terror group led by Doku Umarov that has threatened attacks against the Winter Games in Sochi.

Ibragimova is described as having a 10 centimeter scar across the left cheek, a pronounced limp, and a stiff left arm that doesn't bend at the elbow.

Afghan Taliban suicide team kills ISAF soldier in assault on base

The Long War Journal

The Afghan Taliban have claimed credit for a suicide assault on a base in Kandahar province that hosts Coalition and Afghan forces. The suicide assault today in the southern province is the second such attack in Afghanistan in four days.
Today's suicide assault targeted a base in the district of Zhari, long considered to be the cradle of the Taliban movement in Afghanistan. Zhari, which has been described as "the heart of darkness" due to Taliban rule, was one of several districts that the International Security Assistance Force focused on during the limited surge of US forces from 2010 to 2011.
The attack began when a Taliban suicide bomber, identified by the Taliban as "Izzatullah," rammed a truck laden with explosives into the perimeter of the base. Then a heavily armed Taliban squad dressed in ISAF uniforms breached the base and engaged ISAF and Afghan forces.
The Taliban claimed the attack in a statement on Voice of Jihad, saying that five fighters were involved in the follow-on assault. The Taliban identified the fighters as "Zarraar, Zarqawi Helmandi, Abdullah Kunduzi, Anas Daikondi and Habib Ghaznawi" and said they were "armed with heavy/light weapons and explosives vests."
Afghan officials claimed that up to nine fighters attacked the base. Security forces gunned down the Taliban fighters during the ensuing firefight. ISAF has confirmed that one Coalition soldier was killed during the suicide attack.
"An International Security Assistance Force service member died following a coordinated suicide vehicle-borne improvised explosive device attack by enemy forces in southern Afghanistan today," ISAF said in a statement that was obtained by The Long War Journal. US forces are known to operate in Kandahar.
"Operational reports state there was moderate damage to the outer perimeter of the base; however, the base is currently secured and all enemy forces were killed as a result of the attack," ISAF said.
Today's suicide assault is the second complex suicide operation in Zhari in the past four months that resulted in the death of Coalition forces. On Oct. 6, 2013, in a coordinated attack that included at least one suicide bomber and IEDS, the Taliban killed four US soldiers who were part of a combined US and Afghan patrol. [See Threat Matrix report, 4 US soldiers killed in Taliban suicide attack.]
The Taliban also launched a complex suicide assault in the capital of Kabul just three days ago. In that attack, a suicide bomber detonated outside a restaurant frequented by foreigners. Following the blast, two heavily armed Taliban fighters entered the restaurant and gunned down 21 people, including the IMF's representative to Afghanistan, three UN workers, two Americans, two Brits, two Canadians, and a Danish citizen. [See LWJ report,Taliban suicide assault team targets foreigners in Kabul.]
After the attack, the Taliban angrily rejected the Obama administration's call for the group to "put down their arms and begin peace talks." Instead the group said it would continue to target ISAF forces and Afghan "nationals who are the enemies of our land and religion and are working for the aims of the occupation."
The suicide assault, or coordinated attack using multiple suicide bombers and an assault team, is a tactic that is frequently used in Afghanistan by the Taliban and their allies, including the Haqqani Network, the Movement of the Taliban in Pakistan, al Qaeda, and the Lashkar-e-Taiba. Suicide assaults are also commonly executed by al Qaeda and jihadist groups in Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Pakistan, Somalia, and Nigeria.
