Secretary of State John Kerry is preparing to order all US Embassies located in Africa to fly the gay rights' Rainbow Flag, instead of the American flag during an African Summit on Aug. 4-6.

According to the Houston Chronicle, "The groups praised the Obama administration for a series of steps aimed at promoting gay rights internationally, but they suggested more could be done to block or overturn anti-gay legislation. Among its initiatives, the administration has increased the number of openly gay U.S. ambassadors serving abroad. Some U.S. embassies flew the rainbow flag this year to celebrate local gay pride parades."

Finland Times Prints Anti-Semitic Conspiracies
by Tom McGregor    Mon, Jul 28, 2014, 09:56 PM

Apparently, the publishers of the Finland Times are not friendly with the Israeli government. Editors have published an editorial, which claims that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu assigned Mossad (Israeli secret intelligence unit) to murder three Israeli teenagers to launch a war against Palestinians in Gaza. 

The Finland Times reports that, "The pretext for bombing and shelling Gaza was the death of three Israeli teenagers allegedly killed by Hamas. ‘Operation Protective Edge (OPE) directed against Gaza is reminiscent of the infamous 2001 Dagan Plan entitled “Operation Justified Vengeance” in which the deaths of innocent Israeli civilians had been envisaged and foreseen by IDF military planners."

Obama Gambles on Amnesty to Boost US FDI
by Tom McGregor    Mon, Jul 28, 2014, 08:19 PM

President Barry Obama has gotten so desperate to boost the ailing national economy that he's opened the U.S.-Mexico border to flood the country with illegal immigrants to convince global business people to invest in America with FDI (Foreign Direct Investments) so they can obtain easy access to US visas.

About.com reports that, "Inflow FDI reached what the U.S. Department of Commerce calls a "historical peak" in 2008 with total foreign investments of $328 billion. Investments in 2000 nearly reached that point, but fell to a low of $64 billion in 2003. (Think of how policies effect investment potential: in 2003 the U.S. had endured 9/11, was in a war in Afghanistan, and was just starting one in Iraq.)"
