Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he is being attacked anonymously by senior Obama administration officials because he stands up for Israel’s security.
“I am being attacked because I am willing to defend the state of Israel,” Netanyahu said in a speech Wednesday to Israel’s parliament, the Knesset. “The easy thing to do is to compromise when there is pressure.”
Israeli officials from the president on down have voiced dismay at insults attributed to Obama administration officials who called Netanyahu a “chickens**t” and a “coward,” among other insults, according to the Atlantic in a piece published Tuesday.
“The safety of Israel is not important to those who attack me anonymously and personally,” Netanyahu said. “They’re attacking me because I stand for our safety and our security interests.”
Israeli Economy Minister Naftali Bennett, a leading political rival of Netanyahu’s, came to the prime minister’s defense Tuesday night, accusing Obam of “throwing Israel under the bus.”

American workers and motorists got some badly-needed relief this week when the price of oil plunged to its lowest level in years. The oil price has fallen by about 20 to 25 percent since its peak back in June of $105 a barrel. This is translating to lower prices at the pump with many states now below $3 a gallon.
Already the lower oil and gas prices are the equivalent of a $70 to 200 billion cost saving to American consumers and businesses. That’s $70 to 200 billion a year we don’t have to send to Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and other foreign nations. Now that’s an economic stimulus par excellence.
There are many global reasons why gas prices are falling, but the major one isn’t being widely reported. America has become in the last several years an energy-producing powerhouse. And sorry, Mr. President, I’m not talking about the niche “green energy” sources you are so weirdly fixated with.
Oil prices are falling because of changes in world supply and world demand. Demand has slowed because Europe is an economic wreck. But over the last five years since 2008 the U.S. has increased our domestic supply by a gigantic 50 percent.
Only in Obama’s America is Iran an ally and Israel an enemy.
The Obama administration and Iran, engaged in direct nuclear negotiations and facing a common threat from Islamic State militants, have moved into an effective state of détente over the past year, according to senior U.S. and Arab officials.
The shift could drastically alter the balance of power in the region, and risks alienating key U.S. allies such as Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates who are central to the coalition fighting Islamic State. Sunni Arab leaders view the threat posed by Shiite Iran as equal to or greater than that posed by the Sunni radical group Islamic State, also known as ISIS or ISIL.
Israel contends the U.S. has weakened the terms of its negotiations with Iran and played down Tehran’s destabilizing role in the region.
Over the past decade, Washington and Tehran have engaged in fierce battles for influence and power in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and Afghanistan fueled by the U.S. overthrow of Iraqi strongman Saddam Hussein and the Arab Spring revolutions that began in late 2010. U.S. officials still say the option of military action remains on the table to thwart Iran’s nuclear program.
But recent months have ushered in a change as the two countries have grown into alignment on a spectrum of causes, chief among them promoting peaceful political transitions in Baghdad and Kabul and pursuing military operations against Islamic State fighters in Iraq and Syria, according to these officials.
The Obama administration also has markedly softened its confrontational stance toward Iran’s most important nonstate allies, the Palestinian militant group Hamas and the Lebanese militant and political organization, Hezbollah. American diplomats, including Secretary of State John Kerry , negotiated with Hamas leaders through Turkish and Qatari intermediaries during cease-fire talks in July that were aimed at ending the Palestinian group’s rocket attacks on Israel, according to senior U.S. officials.

Earlier this month Republican candidate Jim Moynihan (R-56) claimed Chicago voting machines gave his vote to his opponent. Moynihan says the voting machine registered a number of votes for the Democrat.
Moynihan later tweeted about his experience.
It looks like it happened again.
Citizens in Maryland say voting machines are changing their Republican votes to Democrat.
CBS Local reported:
Early voting just started last week in Maryland, but there are already accusations that some voting machines are changing Republican votes to Democrat. Now Republicans are calling for an investigation by the State Board of Elections.
Meghan McCorkell has more on the machine controversy.
As Marylanders go to the polls, there are concerns that the vote you cast may not be for the candidate you want.
“We’ve heard from scores of citizens in our district and around the state who have had this problem where they hit one button to vote for one person, and when they go to the summary they see that the other person was checked,” said Del Nik Kipke, (R) Anne Arundel County.
Republicans say they’ve received several dozen reports of Republican votes being changed to Democrat.
Del. Kathy Szeliga says it happened to her.
“I kept pushing the Republican guy’s name and the machine kept going beep, beep, beep,” said Szeliga, (R) Baltimore & Harford co.
Now GOP leaders are calling for an investigation.

It’s not funny, Jeanne.
Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) joked about the open US southern border during a campaign stop in New Hampshire.
Illegal immigrants pile on the “Train of Death” in Mexico on their way to the United States.
Tens of thousands of illegal immigrants have flocked to the U.S. in recent months.
On Monday, Senator Jeanne Shaheen, an Obama Democrat, joked about the open border.
“We sorta let this guy sneak over the border. You’ve probably noticed that we’ve been debating border security a little bit in this campaign. Clearly, we didn’t do enough to secure the southern border of New Hampshire.”

In the words of Ronald Reagan: “Are you better off today than you were four years ago?” Or, six years ago?
Obama’s redistribution policies have worked swimmingly for the average American household.
Average hourly income is down 10-15% since Barack Obama took office.
Via Zero Hedge:
The Middle Class continues to struggle under Obama’s misguided economic policies.
Via the Senate.gov website:
Following is an analysis, prepared by the Senate Finance Committee Minority Staff, on the Obama economy:
WEAK JOB MARKETS:
When President Obama came into office, the national unemployment rate was 7.8 percent and rose to as high as 10 percent in October 2009. Today it is 5.9 percent, however:
The number of people who are not in the labor force has grown, despite a growing working-age population, by 12.1 million.
The number of people who are not in the labor force who want a job has grown by more than 640,000 during the Obama Administration. Many simply gave up on trying to find a job in the Obama economy.
The employment-to-population ratio has remained consistently below 60 percent during Obama’s tenure and has barely budged and has been at 59.0 percent since June of 2014; in contrast, the ratio averaged 62.9 percent between the beginning of the year 2000 through when Obama assumed office.
The labor force participation rate has continued to trend downward during Obama’s tenure, from 65.7 percent when he took office to its current low of 62.7 percent.
Payroll job growth has been tepid over Obama’s tenure: it has averaged only 135,000 per month since the end of the recession.
While over 7.4 million payroll jobs were lost during the recession, there has only been a net 4.7 million jobs created over Obama’s tenure.
Middle-class Americans’ take home pay has shrunk under the Obama Administration’s economic agenda:
Earnings have barely budged during President Obama’s tenure. Average hourly earnings, adjusted for inflation, were $10.38 when the president took office; nearly six years later and a full five years and two months after the National Bureau of Economic Research declared that the recession ended (June 2009), average hourly earnings are now (August, 2014) down to $10.34.
Inflation-adjusted median household income has fallen during President Obama’s tenurefrom $54,423 in 2008, the year before the president took office, to only $51,939 in 2013 (the last year of data availability), putting a squeeze on middle-class American families.
Inflation-adjusted per capita income has fallen from $29,173 in 2008 to $28,829 in 2013.
The number of people in poverty has risen over President Obama’s tenure. As a percent of the total population, 13.2 percent of Americans were in poverty in 2008, before the President took office. In 2013, 14.5 percent of Americans were in poverty.

Democrat Michelle Nunn wants you to believe she’s a “moderate.”
She’s running as a Republican in conservative Georgia.
Democrats always run as moderates. Then they get into office and push legislation to crush the middle class.
Now there’s proof that Nunn is a diehard liberal… And she supports amnesty.
GotNews unearthed video of Michelle Nunn pushing amnesty for illegal immigrants.
Michelle Nunn was also CEO of a pro-amnesty organization.
Are you really surprised?
Good news, if they don’t blow it in the stretch…
The latest Wall Street Journal / NBC News poll says Republicans have soared to a mind-blowing 11 point lead, with voters saying they want a Republican-led Congress by a margin of 52-41. The generic lead for the GOP was only 5 points in the same poll last week. The Tea Party wave elections in 2010 rolled in with only a 7-point lead. It’s relatively rare for the Republicans to have a lead on this question at all, even in years when they do fairly well.
We deal with so much negative news, here’s a little joy for your Sunday. This went viral this week.
ROME (AP) — A video of a pair of dueling, dancing American priests studying in Rome has gone viral, following in the footsteps of a now-famous Italian nun whose Alicia Keys-esque voice won her a singing contest and a record contract.
The Rev. David Rider, 29, of Hyde Park, New York, and the Rev. John Gibson, 28, of Milwaukee, first shot to Internet fame when they were filmed in April during a fundraiser at the North American College, the elite American seminary up the hill from the Vatican.
Rider warmed up the crowd with a lively tap-dance routine, only to be pushed aside by Gibson’s fast-footed Irish dance. Soon they were battling it out, trying to impress the crowd.
At the back of the room, journalist Joan Lewis recorded the event and later posted on YouTube

Dear Family, Friends, Neighbors and former Classmates,
I just found myself in the middle of a medical situation that made it very clear that “the affordable care act” is neither affordable, nor do they care.
I’ll go back about seven years ago to a fairly radical prostate surgery that I underwent. The Urologist (a personal friend) who performed the surgery was very concerned that it was cancer, though I wasn’t told this until the lab report revealed it was benign. Since that procedure, I have experienced numerous urinary tract infections, UTI’s. Since I had never had a “UTI” prior to the prostate surgery, I assume that it is one of the side effects from surgery, an assumption since confirmed by my Family Doctor.
The weekend ofMarch 8-9, I was experiencing all the symptoms of another bout of UTI. By Mondayafternoon the infection had hit with full force. Knowing that all I needed was an antibiotic, I went to an Urgent CareCenter in Mesa, AZ., to provide a specimen, a requirement for getting the prescription. After waiting 45 min. to see the Doctor, I started getting very nauseous and light headed.
I went to the Receptionist to ask where the bathroom was as I felt that I was going to throw up. I was told that I would have to wait for the Doctor because I would need to leave a specimen and they didn’t want me in the bathroom without first seeing him.
That was when the lights went out, my next awareness was that of finding myself on the floor (in the waiting room) having violent dry heaves, and very confused. At this point, I tried to stand up but couldn’t make it, and they made it very clear they weren’t going to let me get up until the ambulance got there. By the way, when you’re waiting to see the Doctor and you pass out, you get very prompt attention.
Now, “the rest of the story”, and the reason for sending this to so many of you.
I was taken to the nearest hospital, to emergency. Once there, I was transported to an emergency examination room. Once I had removed my clothes and donned one of those lovely hospital gowns, I finally got to see a Doctor. I asked “what is going on” I’m just having a UTI, just get me the proper medication and let me go home. He told me that my symptoms presented the possibility of sepsis, a potentially deadly migration of toxins, and that they needed to run several tests to determine how far the infection had migrated.
For the next 3 hours I was subjected to several tests, blood draws, EKG’s, and demands for specimens. At about 7:30 the nurse came back to my room to inform me that one of the tests takes 1- 2 days to complete, I asked if they (the results)could be emailed, at which point she informed me that I wouldn’t need them emailed because I wasn’t going anywhere. I started arguing with her but was told, “if you don’t start behaving, I’ll start taking your temperature rectally, at which point I became a perfect gentleman. I did tell her I wanted to see the doctor because I had no intention of staying overnight.

Millions of people are being spied on by free apps they have installed on their mobile phones, security experts have warned.
Many flashlight apps which allow a device to be used as a torch also secretly record the most sensitive personal information.
This may include the location of the phone, details of its owner and their contacts, and even the content of text messages.
The data is then transmitted to market research companies and advertising agencies to track user’s shopping habits, experts claim.
But it is also suspected that criminal gangs, hackers and identity thieves have developed torch apps of their own to obtain personal data about consumers which could give them access to their bank accounts.
The most popular flashlight apps for Android smartphones have been downloaded tens of millions of times.
It doesn’t matter if you’re wealthy or just making minimum wage; affordable living is key when picking a new place to call home. You’ll need a place where you can have a steady job, where your monthly costs aren’t insanely high, and where the rent doesn’t eat up the majority of your paycheck. So, where are these fabulous places exactly?

No religious groups would be able to distribute their literature, but religiously anti-religious groups are free to have at it…
An atheist group is planning to distribute a pamphlet in several Florida public high schools that depicts an illustration of a cartoon Bible sexually assaulting a young woman.
According to a report by Brittany Hughes at CNSNews.com, the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) plans to hand out a pamphlet entitled “An X-Rated Book: Sex and Obscenity in the Bible,” with a front cover that is illustrated with an animated Bible with arms, legs, salacious facial expression, and salivating mouth, with its hand aggressively extended up the dress of a screaming woman, who is attempting to run away from it.
Rumors swirled last year suggesting that Google was trying to acquire email startup Mailbox, but all that came to an end when Mailbox was acquired by Dropbox. So, Google decided to build its own Mailbox. Unveiled and released earlier this week, “Inbox” is Google’s new email app that has tech bloggers buzzing, once again heralding a fresh take on email as a game-changer. We have used the app ourselves and there’s no question that Google has done a terrific job so far of aping many of the best features from Mailbox and dumping them into a gorgeous interface with some great new features. Inbox is an early beta and it still has a long way to go before it can be considered a complete email solution, and for the time being it only works with personal Gmail accounts. Also, the service is accessible only by invite, though invitations are fairly easy to come by (go here and click the link in the top right corner to request an invite). Are you looking for a similar solution that’s even more comprehensive and works with a wider range of email services? We might have just the app you’re searching for.
It’s no secret that Democratic candidates up for re-election this year have been running from being associated with President Obama amid his anemic approval numbers. It’s also no secret that while many of those candidates don’t wan’t to be associated with him, they also don’t want to be seen as abandoning their party’s leader. That has led to some awkward exchanges. Enter Kay Hagan. Hagan, the Democratic senator from North Carlolina, was asked Tuesday by MSNBC if she thought the president was a strong leader. Her answer was a rambling circle that included a him-haw reference to Obama having a lot going on……they are all running from him

Former CIA Director David Petraeus told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that the
Earlier this year Barack Obama called ISIS the “jayvee team.”
Obama knew about ISIS and did nothing.
The Blaze reported:
Former CIA Director David Petraeus said in a new interview that the rise of the Islamic State was “well known” among people monitoring the situation within the U.S. government, and that it was able to flourish amid the chaos of the civil war in Syria.
“ISIS in a sense is the evolution of an organization that we did defeat, Al Qaeda in Iraq,” Petraeus told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette in an interview published Monday. “Some of the very hard work we did to help re-establish the fabric of Iraqi society — to bring the Sunni Arabs back into Iraqi society and give them an incentive to support the new Iraq rather than to oppose it — was undone. It created fertile ground once again for the planting of the seeds of extremism and alienated the Sunni Arab component of Iraqi society.
“What really revived Al Qaida in Iraq and turned them into the Islamic State was the civil war in Syria,” Petraeus continued. “They grew, gained experience and could identify competent leaders and then begin to capture arms, funding and generate significant resources to enable their expansion. People saw ISIS coming. Even out of the intelligence world, it was well known what ISIS was doing in Syria.”
It’s ALWAYS DIMocrats who do this! It’s mostly done in Chicago, but for the past decade it’s spread in areas that the state is leaning REPUBLICAN. With
With the North Carolina U.S. Senate race in a dead heat, state election officials say they have discovered 145 names on the voting rolls who are ineligible to vote because they are illegal immigrants who have been granted President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals status.
According to a Winston-Salem Journal report, the State Board of Elections discovered the potential illegal voters Tuesday night when the N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles ran a search for DACA licenses. The 145 DACA recipients whose names appear on the SBOE’s voting rolls will be sent letters requesting documentation that they are citizens, the report noted.
DACA beneficiaries in North Carolina are able to obtain drivers licenses, but they are not able to vote.
The Journal notes that it is likely more ineligible people may still remain on the voting rolls.
“Nearly 10,000 names on the rolls are tagged by the DMV as “legally present,” according to elections and transportation officials. But that doesn’t mean that all 10,000 are ineligible to vote at this time. These are license holders who were not U.S. citizens when they got a license. They may have been green-card holders, foreign workers or foreign students, for example.”

A motorcycle gang was filmed via a headcam cruising down a highway doing dangerous stunts. Fortunately, a cop was there to stop them before someone got hurt — except that’s not what happened.
The officer followed the motorcyclists, who the video identified as part of the group Streetfighterz, but none of them pulled over despite his flashing lights and siren. Some of the motorcyclists even taunted the cop, doing wheelies at high speeds past him.
At one point, the officer got close enough to exchange words with one of the motorcyclists. It was unclear what exactly was said, but it sounded like the motorcyclist said something like “it’s not working, you better go.”
Surprisingly, the cop did leave — or at least he seemed to. The cyclists took this as a good sign and waved him off, pumping their fists in the air with victory.

Naming conventions for iPad have been all over the place since its original release in 2010, with ‘iPad 2;’ The New iPad;’ ‘iPad with Retina Display;’ and ‘iPad Air.’ This new model marks the return to a numbered system for each new year model, whereas Macs are just identified by their year of production.
The company also revealed that it has sold more than 225 million iPads since the original was first released in 2010.

Jeffrey Meyer noted earlier that Meet the Press host Chuck Todd announced on Sunday morning that the latest NBC News-Wall Street Journal-Annenberg weekly tracking survey found “the biggest lead we’ve reported yet for generically for the Republicans,” 49 to 44 percent among likely voters (and 45-43 among registered voters). “Here’s what I can tell you. All Democrats agree, it was a bad week for them,” Todd said.
But Sunday’s NBC Nightly News and Monday’s Today couldn’t locate that poll, much like they’ve avoided other NBC News polls that look bad for Democrats.
The numbers came up on MSNBC Monday on Morning Joe and on The Daily Rundown, where host Craig Melvin announced them alongside the curious news that Democrats are leading by ten points among low-information voters. (Is that encouraging?)

UPPER MARLBORO Md. (Reuters) – President Barack Obama made a rare appearance on the campaign trail on Sunday with a rally to support the Democratic candidate for governor in Maryland, but early departures of crowd members while he spoke underscored his continuing unpopularity…
Most candidates from his party have been wary of appearing with him during their election races because of his sagging popularity.
“You’ve got to vote,” Obama repeated over and over at a rally for Brown in Upper Marlboro, Maryland, near Washington… A steady stream of people walked out of the auditorium while he spoke, however, and a heckler interrupted his remarks…
Maybe they were leaving to vote.

WASHINGTON — The confidential memo from a former pollster for President Obama contained a blunt warning for Democrats. Written this month with an eye toward Election Day, it predicted “crushing Democratic losses across the country” if the party did not do more to get black voters to the polls.
“African-American surge voters came out in force in 2008 and 2012, but they are not well positioned to do so again in 2014,” Cornell Belcher, the pollster, wrote in the memo, dated Oct. 1. “In fact, over half aren’t even sure when the midterm elections are taking place.”
