Nigeria: Islamic Jihadists Behead Six-Year-Old Boy Because He Was Christian

By Robert Spencer, Aug. 31, 2014,

“When you meet the unbelievers, strike the necks…” (Qur’an 47:4)

This reads like the story of a Roman martyr from the second century: “Boko Haram beheaded six-year-old Christian boy, group reports,” Christian Today, August 28, 2014 (thanks toThe Religion of Peace):

It was revealed this week that Nigerian terrorist group Boko Haram beheaded a six-year-old boy on June 1 because he was a Christian.

The attack occurred in Attagara, Gwoza district, Borno State – a predominately Christian community, according to Voice of the Martyrs.

Over 100 militants descended upon the village, slaughtering men, women, and children.

Boko Haram has kidnapped and killed Christians and Shiite Muslims across Borno and Yobe States in an increasingly deadly campaign to establish an extremist, Sunni Muslim reign.

The assault on Attagara occurred as Sunday church services were beginning, according to Voice of the Martyrs (VOM). Boko Haram slashed the villagers with machetes, and fired upon them with assault weapons.

One villager, Sawaltha Wandala, was arriving at church for the second service when he saw children being massacred. One six-year-old boy had been slashed and thrown into a ditch, but he was alive. Wandala picked him up and was carrying him to a hospital in Cameroon, when he was stopped by five of the militants.

Romney: Obama's 'Mistakes' Allowed ISIS To Grow

By Sandy Fitzgerald, Aug. 31, 2014,


President Barack Obama's mistakes enabled the rise of the Islamic State (ISIS) and created the immigration crisis at the country's southern border, his 2012 opponent, Mitt Romney, said Sunday in a roundtable radio discussion hosted by John Catsimatidis.

"Mistakes were made and now we have ISIS," Romney told Catsimatidis on "The Cats Round Table" on New York City station WNYM-AM.

Romney argued that ISIS would not be gaining power if the United States has followed his plan back in 2012 for dealing with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

"If you go back a few years when Syria fell into revolution and tumult, when rebels were pushing against Assad, I laid out what I thought was a prudent course for us to see stability in Syria," he said. "Had we followed that course, there's a good chance you would not see an ISIS today."

He said his plan would have done more to back revolutionaries in Syria while ensuring Assad's own tribe, the Alawites, that their future was secure even without him in power.

"These kind of actions would have stabilized Syria, at least I believe so, and would have prevented the growth of a group like ISIS," Romney said.

He also accused Obama of failing to heed American intelligence about ISIS, saying that the president was told a year ago that the jihadists planned to invade an Iraqi city.

"We saw ISIS roll into Iraq and, instead of attacking them immediately and knocking them in their convoy when they would have been easy to knock down, relatively easy to knock down, the president again watched," said Romney. "And now we're in a position where ISIS has run throughout major portions of Iraq. There have been horrific human rights abuses, tragedies."

In addition, Romney took Obama to task for his immigration policies.

"The president should have enforced our immigration laws from the very beginning," the former Massachusetts governor said. "His announcement of a form of amnesty only encouraged people to continue to flood over the border. The right answer to the immigration crisis would be to secure the border and enact a series of immigration policy reforms instead.

Jennifer Lawrence Nude Photos 'Leaked By 4chan': Explicit Pix Of 'Hunger Games' Star On Twitter

By Conservative Outfitters, Aug. 31, 2014

MailOnline: Nude photographs of Jennifer Lawrence - as well as photographs that purportedly show multiple celebrities - have leaked online.

According to Buzzfeed, the cell phone photos were obtained through iCloud before they were published on a 4chan thread.

A list of the alleged victims reportedly posted by the hacker has also appeared online, the news site noted. There are 101 names in total.

Reps for Lawrence confirmed to MailOnline the photos of her are real.

'This is a flagrant violation of privacy. The authorities have been contacted and will prosecute anyone who posts the stolen photos of Jennifer Lawrence,' the emailed statement read.

The hacker wrote on 4chan he or she is accepting donations for a video which allegedly shows Lawrence in a sex act.

'Jennifer Lawrence' became a Twitter trend on Sunday afternoon.

Actress Mary Elizabeth Winstead, who confirmed she was a hacking victim, wrote on Twitter 'To those of you looking at photos I took with my husband years ago in the privacy of our home, hope you feel great about yourselves.'

Arctic Ice Cap Expands By 41% In 2 Yrs; Gore Thought It Might Be Gone By Now

By Tom Blumner, Aug. 30, 2014,

Ice, ice baby. That's what they have a lot more of in the Arctic.

The UK Daily Mail, one of those British tabloids the left has despised going back to the Clinton administration and its paranoia about a right-wing media conspiracy, reports from authoritative sources — the kind the U.S. establishment press uses when it seems to support the hoax known as human-caused global warming — that the Arctic ice cap has expanded rapidly in the past two years. In doing so, it has made up all of what was lost between 2009 and 2012 with a slight margin to spare. Seven years ago, former Vice President and leading global warming false alarmist Al Gore predicted that "It could be completely gone." Excerpts follow the jump (bolds are mine):

Myth of arctic meltdown: Stunning satellite images show summer ice cap is thicker and covers 1.7million square kilometres MORE than 2 years ago...despite Al Gore's prediction it would be ICE-FREE by now

- Seven years after former US Vice-President Al Gore's warning, Arctic ice cap has expanded for second year in row

- An area twice the size of Alaska - America's biggest state - was open water two years ago and is now covered in ice

- These satellite images taken from University of Illinois's Cryosphere project show ice has become more concentrated

The speech by former US Vice-President Al Gore was apocalyptic. ‘The North Polar ice cap is falling off a cliff,’ he said. ‘It could be completely gone in summer in as little as seven years. Seven years from now.’

Those comments came in 2007 as Mr Gore accepted the Nobel Peace Prize for his campaigning on climate change.

But seven years after his warning, The Mail on Sunday can reveal that, far from vanishing, the Arctic ice cap has expanded for the second year in succession – with a surge, depending on how you measure it, of between 43 and 63 per cent since 2012.

UK Accused Of Harbouring Libyan Cleric Who Helped Aid Islamist Insurgency

Sheikh Sadik Al-Ghariani

Chris Stephen and Josh Halliday, Aug. 29, 2014,

Britain has been accused of housing a possible war crimes suspect after the Guardian learned that Libya's highest spiritual leader, the grand mufti Sheikh Sadik Al-Ghariani, helped orchestrate the Islamist takeover of Tripoli from the UK.

On a day when David Cameron announced tougher measures to tackle the threat from terrorists, the Foreign Office confirmed that Ghariani was residing in the UK, from where he is encouraging his followers to overthrow the Libyan government.

Earlier this week, the radical cleric celebrated the violent capture of Tripoli by Islamist militia force Libya Dawn and called for a widening of the rebellion using an online television channel registered by a close family relative in Exeter.

The day after Tripoli fell to the Islamist group Libya Dawn, Ghariani sent congratulations to the Islamist militants using his internet channel, Tanasuh: "I congratulate the revolutionaries in their victory, I give blessing to the martyrs," he said.

Ghariani's presence in Britain will prove acutely embarrassing for the government, emerging on the day the prime minister warned of a "greater and deeper threat to our security than we have known before" from Islamist extremists as the security threat level was raised from substantial to severe.

The matter is also likely to strain relations with Washington. American officials are understood to be furious that he has been allowed a pulpit to preach in the UK, particularly following his praise in June of the militant group Ansar Sharia, which the US blames for the killing of its ambassador Chris Stevens in Bengazi in 2012.

McCain: Obama Either In Denial Or Overwhelmed About ISIS Threat

Sen. John McCain
Aug. 31, 2014,

Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) slammed President Barack Obama saying “he’s either in denial or overwhelmed.” by the threat ISIS poses to the United States.

The Arizona Republican said, “This is a direct threat to the United States of America. It may be one of the biggest we’ve ever faced.” he added, "The president of the United States is either in denial or overwhelmed, he is either in denial or overwhelmed one of the two."

McCain said, "One of the biggest mistakes ever made in my view in recent times was the president's overruling his entire national security team, including the Secretary of State, two years ago for providing weapons for the free Syrian army. That was a seminal moment. Remember this is a president who say it is not a matter of whether, but a matter of when Bashar Al-assad would go. We need to have reconciliation between the Sunni and the new government in Iraq and most of all we have to have a clear strategy dictated by a policy, and that policy has to be we have to defeat isis, not contain, not stop, but defeat ISIS because they are a direct threat overtime to the United States of America."

What A Bunch Of Tea Partiers Did For People Of Ferguson Is Something Most News Media Won’t Report

Looting in Ferguson
By Michael Hausam, Aug. 31, 2014,

Apparently, the St. Louis Tea Party missed the memo that the tea party is full of selfish people who just want to spread their misdirected ire in random ways, because that’s just the kind of Haterade drinkers they are.

According to the group’s Facebook page and BizPacReview, the group is organizing a “BUYcott” to help Ferguson businesses that were devastated by the riots. The group’s leader, Bill Hennessy, posted this exchange, showing the surprise that many had when the event occurred:

A gentlman (my age) in the salon (husband?) asked who we were with. I told him “St. Louis Tea Party.”

“Tea party?” he said. “You bad boys,” and chuckled. Then he looked at me, very serious. He said, “The tea party came up here to do this?”

“Oh, yeah,” I said. “we don’t want to see Ferguson go south.”

He laughed. And he looked at me. Then he was quiet, lost in thought for a minute. When he came out of it, he was like our best friend. Laughing, giving us crap about stuff, telling stories. He admitted baseball can be like “watching grass grow.”

In that moment of reflection, I’m sure he was trying to reconcile “tea party” with what he was seeing–four white people, ages 18 to 50, laughing, spending money, empathizing.

That moment made the whole event worthwhile.

Mideast Expert: Obama Switched Sides In War On Terror

President Obama appears to bow to Saudi King Abdullah,
on April 1, 2009, in London. / WND
By Garth Kant, Aug. 29, 2014,

WASHINGTON – It’s an explosive charge, one that puts the president’s motives into question.

A former CIA agent bluntly told WND, America has switched sides in the war on terror under President Obama.

Clare Lopez was willing to say what a few members of Congress have confided to WND in private, but declined to say on-the-record.

She said the global war on terror had been an effort to “stay free of Shariah,” or repressive Islamic law, until the Obama administration began siding with such jihadist groups as the Muslim Brotherhood and its affiliates.

Why the switch?

Lopez explained, when the so-called Arab Spring appeared in late 2010, “It was time to bring down the secular Muslim rulers who did not enforce Islamic law. And America helped.”

And why would Obama want to do that?

As she told WND earlier this month, Lopez believed the Muslim Brotherhood has thoroughly infiltrated the Obama administration and other branches of the federal government.

She also came to the conclusion Obama had essentially the same goals in the Mideast as the late Osama bin Laden: “to remove American power and influence, including military forces, from Islamic lands.”

Why would Obama order the killing of bin Laden?

Muslims Raping Nuns

By Pamela Geller, Aug. 31, 2014,

The horror. The terror. The unspeakable savagery of jihad.

Perhaps few things are as disgusting and cowardly as the Muslim rape of nuns: defenseless Christian women who sacrifice much of their lives to help sick and needy Muslims.

At a time when Christianity worldwide is under siege by Islamic jihadists, the Pope claimed that the quran teaches non-violence. As Christians across the Muslim world live in abject terror and fear kidnapping, rape and slaughter to the bloodcurdling cries of “Allahu akbar,” the pope gives papal sanction to the savage.

253. In order to sustain dialogue with Islam, suitable training is essential for all involved, not only so that they can be solidly and joyfully grounded in their own identity, but so that they can also acknowledge the values of others, appreciate the concerns underlying their demands and shed light on shared beliefs. We Christians should embrace with affection and respect Muslim immigrants to our countries in the same way that we hope and ask to be received and respected in countries of Islamic tradition. I ask and I humbly entreat those countries to grant Christians freedom to worship and to practice their faith, in lightof the freedom which followers of Islam enjoy in Western countries! Faced with disconcerting episodes of violent fundamentalism, our respect for true followers of Islam should lead us to avoid hateful generalisations, for authentic Islam and the proper reading of the Koran are opposed to every form of violence.

Fracking Report Clears Way For Calif Oil, Gas Leasing To Resume

By Julie Cart, Aug. 28, 2014,

The federal government will resume oil and gas leasing in California following a report released Thursday that found little scientific evidence that fracking and similar extraction techniques are dangerous.

The Bureau of Land Management said the report — and additional environmental reviews — will allow it to begin leasing on public land next year. The announcement is welcome news for energy companies that have been shut out of the oil-rich San Joaquin Valley and Central Coast.

But critics, including environmental organizations whose lawsuits led to a judge's order to halt leasing last year, said the analysis was rushed by the BLM and relied on spotty information.

The Inglewood Oil Field in Culver City is the nation's largest urban oil field. A new report has found no scientific evidence that fracking is harmful to the environment, but the authors say they had little information on which to base conclusions. (Luis Sinco / Los Angeles Times)

The study was conducted by the California Council on Science and Technology, a nonpartisan scientific research organization established by the state Legislature to advise state officials. Its authors noted that they had little time and scant information on which to base conclusions, citing widespread "data gaps" and inadequate scientific resources for a more thorough study.

For example, the report found no evidence of water contamination from fracking in California, but the scientist directing the research, Jane Long, said researchers also had no data on the quality of water near fracking sites.

"We can only tell you what the data we could get says," said Long, a former director at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. "We can't tell you what we don't know."

Exclusive: Breitbart Texas Verifies ISIS Border Threat With Leaked Doc

Credit:  UPI
By Brandon Darby, Aug. 29, 2014,

LUBBOCK, Texas -- Breitbart Texas has exclusively obtained a leaked document warning federal agents about an ISIS-related terrorism threat across the entire US-Mexico border. Though the document focuses on the Texas-Mexico border, Breitbart Texas has confirmed that federal agents across the entire US-Mexico border have received the ISIS terror warning.

The document was released by the Texas Department of Public Safety and warned that ISIS was actively promoting and encouraging supporters to take advantage of the porous Texas-Mexico border to carry out terrorist attacks against US citizens.

The document attributed the increased interest by ISIS to a report done by journalist James O'Keefe. Though the report did not mention O'Keefe by name, it showed images of O'Keefe crossing the porous Texas-Mexico border while wearing an Osama bin Laden mask.

In addition to the report, U.S. Border Patrol Agents confirmed that the U.S. Border Patrol agency was indeed taking the threat seriously. A Border Patrol agent in the Laredo Sector told Breitbart Texas that they had credible information that ISIS was attempting to find individuals and groups in Nuevo-Laredo Mexico to assist in gaining entry into the united states.

Chuck Todd: Women Reject GOP 'Crazy White Guys' With 'Crazy Theories' About Contraception

By Kyle Drennen, Aug. 28, 2014,

In an interview with Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus on MSNBC's The Daily Rundown on Thursday, host and incoming Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd proposed a cause for the GOP's difficulty in attracting women voters: " the arguments about contraception end up...putting the party on mute with those same women voters who may like your economic proposals but say, 'You know what? There's just too many crazy white guys who have crazy theories about my reproductive system and I'm not listening.'" [Listen to the audio or watch the video after the jump]

Priebus rejected the notion: "No, I don't think that's the case at all." Todd continued, this time imagining the thoughts of Hispanic voters: "And Hispanics, same thing. Hispanics who maybe on some social issues would be with you, but the immigration talk says, 'You know what? I can't trust because they've got a whole bunch of crazy guys that talk crazy on immigration.' Isn't that an issue?"

'Liberal Lions' Stewart & Colbert Slammed For Hypocritical Lack Of Diversity In Guests

Jon Stewart / Stephen Colbert
By Randy Hall, Aug. 29, 2014,

We've all heard the never-ending cry from liberal Democrats that conservative Republicans dodge diversity by favoring white males as hosts and guests on their television programs to the detriment of people in such groups as women and blacks.

However, in an article on the Reuters news service, writer Chloe Angyal charges that such “liberal lions” as Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert of the Comedy Central cable channel are obviously hypocritical regarding this topic since “their guest rosters more closely resemble a GOP national convention than they do the liberal vision of a diverse and equitable America.”

After describing the past few months as “one of the most news-heavy summers in decades,” Angyal stated that “Ukraine, Gaza and now Ferguson have gripped the attention of those who cover and consume the news.”

She added that “millions of Americans, especially younger ones, will have their understanding of these international and domestic crises filtered through the lens of political satire, thanks to the efforts of Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert and relative newcomer John Oliver. “

The reporter stated that “Stewart and Colbert are darlings of the left, icons of contemporary American liberalism.” However, “the majority of their guests are just as white and male as they are.”

“Colbert’s track record, in particular, is simply pitiful,” Angyal noted. “This is both surprising and dismaying, given his status as one of the most visible liberal comedians performing political satire today, and the place he holds in the hearts of so many left-leaning American viewers.

“All 10 hosts of late-night television programs are white, though that's going to change at the end of the year,” she noted. “That's when Colbert takes over The Late Show on CBS and The Colbert Report is replaced with The Minority Report, which will be hosted by The Daily Show's longtime senior black correspondent, Larry Wilmore.”

Meanwhile, Angyal stated:

Michelle Malkin: Asian-Bashing Dems And The Doormat Minorities Who Enable Them

By Michelle Malkin, Aug. 26, 2014,

Harry Reid is a bigoted Beltway corruptocrat with an interminable case of diarrhea of the mouth. The feeble-minded coot stuck his foot in that mess of a mouth again last week at the Las Vegas Asian Chamber of Commerce. But as mortifying as the Senate Majority Leader is, there's an even worse spectacle: Asian-American liberals who keep giving top Democrats and their partisan operatives blanket passes.

Reid clumsily offered his assessment of the success and intelligence of business leaders of Asian descent at the gathering. "I don't think you're smarter than anybody else, but you've convinced a lot of us you are," he babbled. You put those uppity Asians in their places, Hater Harry!

During a question-and-answer session, Reid followed up his jibe with a crude "joke" about Chinese surnames that would make Archie Bunker cringe: "One problem that I've had today is keeping my Wongs straight."

Good thing the pale-faced codger didn't let a "ching-chong" slip out, too. You know it was ringing around between his ears. Mocking Asian monikers is a hanging offense if you're a Republican pol or conservative talk-show host. But it's just a meaningless gaffe by "diversity's" best friend when you're Democratic Senate Majority Leader.

That's why Reid's hosts obliged with subdued tittering. National news anchors selectively averted their gazes. The Asian American Journalists Association, so quick to issue sanctimonious guidelines for avoiding ethnic stereotypes, maintained radio silence. And the usual left-wing speech police who read racism into every word uttered by conservatives from "angry" to "Chicago" to "Constitution" to "Obamacare" saw and said nothing.

One bizarre group, Asian Pacific American Advocates, was only offended because they resent public attention paid to successful Asian Americans. They vented that Reid "falsely assumes that our communities continue to perpetuate the model minority stereotype, when we have been actively working to highlight the vast socioeconomic disparities within our communities." These confused people have spent way too much time in social justice 101 classes.

Back in Washington, D.C., the usually garrulous Democratic chairwoman of the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus (CAPAC), Rep. Judy Chu, responded by ... not responding at all. CAPAC Executive Director Krystal Ka'ai did not return my email seeking reaction to the race-mocking Senate Majority Leader, who has now apologized for his "extremely poor taste."

Chu and her ethnic grievance caucus — which pledges to "denounce racial and religious discrimination affecting Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders" — did find time over the past year to:

Obama’s Immigration Policies Are So Popular Dems Beg Him To Delay Them Until Post-Election

President Barack Obama
By Andrew Styles, Aug. 29, 2014,

The two-step plan would bow to the concerns of Democratic lawmakers running in Republican-leaning states who have expressed opposition to Obama’s plans to act unilaterally on the hot-button issue. Some Democratic senators have said he should wait for Congress to pass legislation.

Wait. Why would they want to do that? Aren’t the policies Obama is proposing on immigration wildly popular? That’s what they keep telling us, anyway. “I promise you, the American people don’t want me just standing around twiddling my thumbs,” he said earlier this month. If Democrats would simply stand with the president, then surely voters will reward them. Right?

Apparently, Democrats running for reelection feel otherwise, as the Washington Post’s Greg Sargent explains. In fact, they’re worried that Obama taking action on immigration before the November “could make a GOP Senate takeover more likely.” But it’s not just because a lot of Democratic Senators are running in red states where voters are less inclined to support Obama’s immigration policies.

In New Hampshire, Republican Scott Brown is gaining on incumbent Senate Jeanne Shaheen afterattacking her record on immigration. A recent poll showed Brown within two points, a dramatic improvement since June, when polling showed him trailing by 12 points.

Meanwhile, public opinion on immigration has shifted dramatically since the controversy surrounding the influx of child migrants on the southern border.

Al Qaeda Magazine Hints Of Attack; Urges Bombing Of Vegas, Military Targets

Flag of al Qaeda
By Lisa Daftari, Aug. 28, 2014,

A new English-language Al Qaeda magazine features a how-to article on making car bombs and suggests terror targets in the United States, including casinos in Las Vegas, oil tankers and military colleges, and implies that an attack is imminent.

The online publication, called “Palestine-Betrayal of the Guilty Conscience Al-Malahem” and put out by the media arm of Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, or AQAP, calls for Muslims around the world to follow “the recipe” provided to set off car bombs in crowded venues. It includes a timeline of "selected jihadi operations" that the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), which first flagged the slickly-produced latest edition of the terror publication, finds chilling.

“The timeline concludes with the date 201?’ and blank spaces and question marks for the photo and information of the next attack -- implying that it is coming soon.” said MEMRI Executive Director Steve Stalinsky.

There is a suggested list of targets for lone-wolf, or individually executed, terror attacks, including New York's Times Square, casinos and night clubs in Las Vegas, oil tankers and trains, the Georgia Military College, the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, and General Atomics defense contractor in San Diego.

Police: 85-Year-Old Woman Carjacked, Injured In Riviera Beach

By Jorge Milian, Aug. 29, 2014,

Two felons are being held in the Palm Beach County Jail without bond after they allegedly carjacked an 85-year-old woman and snatched her purse, causing her to sustain injuries, according to an arrest report. Minutes earlier, the two men attempted to carjack a tourist but were unsuccessful.

Bernard R. Dixon of Riviera Beach and Garry Lormejuste, who has no fixed addresses, are each facing charges of robbery with a firearm and possession of a weapon by a felon.

Riviera Beach Police met with a Massachusetts woman Wednesday morning who said two men had attempted to open her door while flashing a handgun near the area of East Blue Heron Avenue and Lakeshore Drive, the report said. The woman told police she was looking for the Sailfish Marina in Palm Beach Shores and had pulled over to look at her GPS when the men attempted to enter her car. The woman was able to speed away and call police.

Both suspects fled the area toward a food store, where they allegedly carjacked the 85-year-old victim, taking her Buick and purse. The woman was taken to St. Mary’s Medical Center for treatment of minor injuries, the report said.

Dixon and Lormejuste were found by police walking on the 2500 block of Broadway Avenue. A semi-automatic handgun was found in Lormejuste’s possession, according to the police report.

In Just 6 months, 37,477 Illegal Immigrant Kids Released--Only 280 Deported

By Paul Bedard, Aug. 29, 2014,

The Obama administration has released a huge majority ofillegal immigrant children who poured over the U.S.-Mexico border earlier this year into dozens of tony counties without notifying the public, while deporting just 280, according to new reports.

The Health and Human Services Department released a listof 126 counties 29,890 of the kids were placed into, sometimes with their parents who are also in the United States illegally.

Those counties include some of the most exclusive in the nation, including the Washington suburbs of Fairfax and Loudoun in Virginia and Howard and Montgomery in Maryland. Fairfax received 1,023.

States like California and New York were given large numbers of the unaccompanied children, while President Obama’s home state of Illinois, where experts expected many to go, received only 175, according to the list.

The HHS statistics covered only January to July. Federal officials expect another huge surge of children from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala to begin next week when the temperatures cool. One independent expert said that the second wave this year could include another 30,000 illegal children.

LeBron James: The Next Warren Buffett?

By The Motley Fool

It took Buffett 50 years to hit $700 million. Yet, in his next 33 years, he’d bank an astounding $62.3 billion more wealth.

Buffett grew that wealth through a series of savvy business moves by buying great companies that found huge success in the years after he took a stake in them.

Now, imagine where Buffett might be if he had been worth hundreds of million in his twenties.

That’s exactly the position we find LeBron James. LeBron is only 29, has become an unexpected protégé to Buffett (seriously), and he’s quietly building sport’s most powerful business empire with the help of the Warren Buffett.

Buffett: LeBron James is savvy

While they’re an unlikely duo, sightings of LeBron James and Warren Buffett together are not hard to find. The two dined together (along with Bill Gates!) in Las Vegas and have been spotted golfing in Sun Valley together.

Get this, LeBron even sends his financial statements to Warren Buffett! Here’s an excerpt from an interview with LeBron in Sport Illustrated:

“I sent an e-mail about this to Warren Buffett. I'm a kid from Akron who lived in poverty for a long time, and I sometimes send financial statements to one of the richest guys ever. It's kind of scary. I'm like, 'Why is he talking to me?'”

LeBron doesn’t need to worry why Buffett would spend time advising him, because Buffett has been nothing but glowing in his praise of LeBron. In an interview with NBA TV, Buffett described LeBron as “remarkably mature,” being “plenty smart about financial matters,” and saying “I was impressed with him right from the moment I met him.”

Listen To The American People: Secure Borders, No Amnesty

By Michael Johns, Aug. 18, 2014,

“He was tortured, beaten to death, strangled and then set on fire,” Laura Wilkerson said earlier this month in McAllen, Texas. She was recalling her beloved 18-year-old son Josh, who was brutally murdered by illegal alien Hermilio Moralez in November 2010.

The details of Josh Wilkerson’s murder are gruesome. Moralez, in the United States illegally from Belize, violently kicked Wilkerson in the stomach, slicing both his liver and spine and rupturing his spleen. The illegal alien then proceeded to beat Wilkerson over the head with a closet rod with such force that the rod ultimately shattered in four pieces. With Wilkerson defenseless and motionless, Moralez then took two dollars from Wilkerson’s wallet, purchased gasoline, and set Wilkerson’s motionless body aflame. Moralez's mugshot reveals a young man smiling smugly. Later, at his trial, the illegal alien would speak from the stand about how he was a “trained killer” and that his “killing instincts” had taken over. There was no remorse.

Young Josh Wilkerson is just another life lost and another cost paid in a long list of lives lost and costs paid because Washington, D.C. policymakers continue to fail to do what logic and all sensibility dictate should have been done decades ago: Securing the United States border with Mexico so that illegals are not afforded access to the United States.

The U.S. federal government’s multi-decade failure to secure its 1,989-mile border with Mexico now stands as the most glaring example of both major political parties’ ongoing refusal to be responsive to the American people’s overwhelming belief that this border needs to be secured. Josh Wilkerson’s murder stands as just one of many examples why it is now perhaps the most critical issue facing the nation, presenting increasingly grave economic, security and other threats.

It’s worth asking the obvious question: With more than 35,000 illegals monthly now crossing the border into the U.S., why exactly has this border not been sealed? Laughingly, the Obama administration has said that the border with Mexico is more secure than it has ever been. It’s a sentiment shared by Congressional Democrats. “The border is secure,” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid absurdly stated last month. Other policymakers acknowledge the obvious, but obfuscate the issue, speaking wrongly of supposedly insurmountable challenges associated with keeping illegals from entering the country.
