  • The same group that claimed responsibility for an attack on a Kenyan mall this weekend that has claimed at least 62 lives has previously recruited dozens of Americans to join their cause. U.S. officials estimate that as many as 50 Americans have traveled to training camps in Somalia, the home of the al Qaida-linked terror group al-Shabaab, over the last six years.

  • For a while, veteran Republicans groused in private about “new guy” Senator, Republican Ted Cruz of Texas. But it boiled over when Cruz joined Kentucky Senator Rand Paul’s filibuster of John Brennan’s nomination to head the CIA—an act of protest against Obama’s drone program. John McCain, already seething over Cruz’s treatment of Hagel, called them “wacko birds.” “He f*cking hates Cruz,” one adviser of the Arizona senator told me. “He’s just offended by his style.” Source: GQ…

 

  • The U.S. Department of Homeland Security tested a sophisticated facial recognition system – the Biometric Optical Surveillance System (BOSS) – at a hockey game in Washington State over the weekend, utilizing a sophisticated system of cameras to collect pictures of attendees in real-time from as far away as 100 meters and then match them up with images of faces stored on a database.

  • A Venezuelan state agency on Friday ordered the temporary takeover of a factory that produces toilet paper in what it called an effort to ensure consistent supplies after embarrassing shortages earlier this year. Source: Reuters… 

 

  • If the Senate doesn’t get behind Ted Cruz’s efforts to defund Obamacare, it won’t be because of any failure on Ted’s part. It’ll be because there weren’t enough principled leaders to stand with him, and that would be a tragic loss, not for Ted, but for America. Source: Sarah Palin For Breitbart
