The Daily Beast: “America’s ally in Yemen is gone. Its special forces have been evacuated. A country touted by the president as a counterterror ‘model’ is poised to be an ISIS and al Qaeda playland.

In an interview, Senator Richard Burr, the chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, told The Daily Beast that unfolding events in Yemen portended a dire future for U.S. policy across the region.

“We’re totally out. Forward looking, this is what the region is going to look like if we don’t take care of al Qaeda, we don’t take care of ISIL, we don’t take care of Iran’s involvement with the Houthis,” Burr said, using the government’s preferred acronym for the so-called Islamic State. “Yemen is going to be, in the president’s own words, a ‘model,’ [but] not of success, [instead] of absolute failure of our foreign policy.”

Opinion: Al Qaeda was supposed to be on the run and Yemen a model of success.

Here’s the deal: The House of Saud is wobbling after the death of Abdullah. King Salman is said to be suffering from dementia or worse and with the potential for Iran, ISIS, and al Qaeda competing for the ultimate prize that is controlling 40% of the world’s oil, the US would have no choice but to get involved.

Did someone say wars and rumors of war?

Breitbart: “In the aftermath of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s big electoral win on Tuesday, the Obama administration reportedly seeks to use the United Nations as a club with which to beat those recalcitrant Jews into line.

According to Foreign Policy, the Obama administration may stop blocking United Nations efforts to “call for the resumption of political talks to conclude a final peace settlement” between Israelis and Palestinians. The fact that the United Nations wants to force Israel, a fully functioning diverse democracy, into negotiating with a terrorist regime led by the Palestinian Authority and Hamas demonstrates the moral bankruptcy of the institution.

But more importantly, it demonstrates that President Obama’s big power grab is just beginning.”

Opinion: Hell has no fury …

President Obama’s day late and a dollar short phone call to PM Netanyahu underscores the contempt the president has for America’s staunchest Mideast ally — just re-elected against the odds?

The Daily Caller: “President Barack Obama’s appointees have airbrushed Iran out of the terror section of the 2015 annual report on national security threats, just as he tries to negotiate a nuclear weapons deal with Iran’s theocratic leaders.

The 2015 “Worldwide Threat Assessment of the U.S. Intelligence Community” excludes Iran and its network of jihadi groups who are motivated by Islam’s Shia sect, from the report’s terror section.

Instead, the assessment focuses entirely jihadis motivated by the Sunni sect of Islam, including those in al-Qaida and ISIS, sometimes known as the Islamic State.”

Opinion: There are a few things we can count on from this administration;  open borders, race warfare, same sex marriage, abortion on demand and Iranian nukes.

I remember when I first read Joel Rosenberg’s Epicenter in 2006. I could not imagine how the world would allow a terror state to become powerful enough to acquire nukes. The war of Gog and Magog seemed very far off.

Fast forward nine years and the Iranians are being given a green light to spin centrifuges and build ICBMs that will  carry them as far as New York.

The US now has three alliances in the ME:

  • Iran, despite providing funding and weapons for Hezbollah, Hamas and Bashar Assad, Iran is being given charge of Iraq
  • Muslim Brotherhood, despite being the parent of al Qaeda, Hamas Islamic Jihad and ISIS, the US relationship with Egypt is trashed
  • Israel, depending on the outcome of today’s election

If PM Netanyahu is re-elected expect Israel to be completely isolated and the Obama administration to support a Palestinian state in the West Bank including East Jerusalem.

Kerry: ISIS Recruits Attracted by Perception of Glamor/Success, Not Religious Fervor

CNS News: “Foreign recruits joining the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) are not being targeted for their religious fervor but because they are gullible enough to believe the cause is glamorous and successful, Secretary of State John Kerry said Wednesday. “Let’s be honest: Those recruiting for Da’esh are not looking for people who
