BREAKING NEWS: American Female Hostage Being Held By The Islamic State Reportedly Killed In Jordanian Airstrike In Syria

http://www.fortunascorner.wordpress.com

Although not yet officially confirmed, numerous news outlets are reporting that an American female hostage being held by the Islamic State in Syria was reportedly killed as a result of a Jordanian airstrike. Unfortunate if true. But, unless we or one of our allies was able to rescue her — she was more than likely going to suffer a terrible fate. And, my guess is that the Islamic State was no doubt using her as a human shield — hoping perhaps her presence at one of their key locations, might dissuade Jordan and/or, the U.S. from striking that site – wherever it was — as long as she was alive. These kind of things, unfortunately happen in war. Jordan did, what Jordan had to do. Jordan bears no responsibility for her…

FBI Reveals New Details On How North Korea Hacked Sony — And, Why The Agency Has High Confidence That North Korea Is/Was The Culprit — Everything You Need To Know About North Korea’s ‘Intranet’

http://www.fortunascorner.wordpress.com

Russell Brandom, writing on the January 7, 2014 website, Verge, quotes FBI Director James Comey as saying at a cyber security conference in Manhattan today as saying, “I don’t have high confidence in many things in life; but, one thing I do have high confidence in — is that North Korea is responsible for the recent Sony Entertainment Corp,”. — in an attempt to dissuade the company from releasing the movie, The Interview. According to Director Comey, the Guardians of Peace “got sloppy,” when masking IP addresses, allowing FBI researchers to determine that emails and other messages to Sony employees were originating from Internet connections used exclusively by North Korea.”

As Mr. Brandom notes, “Internet…

Black sheriff to Obama: You built America’s racial divide

Fellowship of the Minds

Yesterday, Dec. 15, 2014, Congressional black staffers walked out of work, with their hands raised in the “hands up, don’t shoot” pose, in protest against “police violence” and against the grand jury decisions exhonerating the cops who shot Michael Brown and Eric Garner in Ferguson and New York, respectively.

Congressional black staffers walkout

A new FOX News poll also found that a majority of both whites and blacks believe race relations have worsened since Obama became president.

Fox News race poll

But who’s to blame for America’s worsening race relations?

The race baiters and useful idiots like the Congressional black staffers and the thousands of Americans who have protested and rioted and burned would have you believe that it’s racist white cops and racist white Americans who are culpable for the worsening race relations.

There are just four things wrong with their accusations:

  1. If Americans are so racist, then why has Obama been elected President not just once, but…

Sandy Hook and Obama’s Connecticut Social Security number

Fellowship of the Minds

One of the many curiosities about the sitting President of the United States is the fact that, unlike us, he has not one, but multiple Social Security numbers (SSN).

In 2010, two licensed private investigators, Neil Sankey and Susan Daniels, found that multiple SS numbers are associated with Barack Obama’s name. Daniels and Sankey put their findings in sworn affidavits. Dr. Orly Taitz further verified their information with a third source, a retired Department of Homeland Security senior investigator named John Sampson.

In May 2010, the mystery deepened when it was determined that the SSN Obama is currently using (042-68-4425) has a Connecticut prefix, 042, but Obama had never lived in nor had associations with the state of Connecticut. Obama has been using that 042 SS number since 1979 when he was 18 years old.

In an article for Western Journalism, Stephen Baldwin writes:

All told, there are 49 addresses and 16…

FBI Chief: Khorasan Plot May Still Be Alive

FBI Director James Comey speaks at the FBI Albany Field Office in Albany, New York, Sept. 23, 2014.

VOA News

September 25, 2014 4:35 PM

Terrorist plots against the United States and Europe may still be in the works despite this week’s airstrikes against the al-Qaida cell known as Khorasan. FBIDirector James Comey told reporters in Washington Thursday he is “not confident at all” that attacks by U.S.-led coalition disrupted Khorasan’s plans.

Comey said the Khorasan group remains at the top of the FBI’s list of terrorism concerns. It’s comprised of al-Qaida veterans from Afghanistan and Pakistan, according to Comey. U.S. intelligence officials say Khorasan has been trying to perfect a non-metallic bomb that can evade airport security.

The director of the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation also said the U.S. believes it has identified an executioner from…

An Islamic State spokesman has called on Muslims around the world to rise up and kill civilians in countries that belong to the US-led coalition against the militant group.

“If you can kill a disbelieving American or European – especially the spiteful and filthy French – or an Australian, or a Canadian, or any other disbeliever […] including the citizens of the countries that entered into a coalition against the Islamic State, then rely upon Allah, and kill him in any manner or way however it may…
