Lead Story by Dave Urbanski, TheBlaze —
BAGHDAD (TheBlaze/AP) — The Al Qaeda breakaway group that has seized huge tracks of Iraq and much of neighboring northern Syria has named the leader of the new caliphate and formally declared the creation of an Islamic state in the territory under its control.

The spokesman for the group, known as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, made the announcement in an audio statement posted online Sunday.

Abu Mohammed al-Adnani said the group’s leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, is the head of the new caliphate — a term used to describe a medieval Islamic state. Al-Adnani called on those living in the area under the group’s control to swear allegiance to al-Baghdadi.

» RUSH LIMBAUGH: What We Are Witnessing On The Border Is A ‘SHAKEDOWN’
Daily Rushbo (Video) —
RUSH: Let me posit something, see what you would think of this. Would it be a stretch to say that what we are witnessing on the border is pretty close to a shakedown? Look at what’s happened, look at what we’ve learned today. Look at what’s going on in New York and New Jersey alone that involves the unaccompanied children crossing the border. There are already transportation systems. The jobs were offered in January at a posting on a gov't website...

» 10 Times Obama Made Fun Of Republicans In The Past Year
Washington Examiner —
President Obama is so over Republican lawmakers. He has long lamented what he views as GOP obstructionism, but now he’s not even trying to hide his disdain, belittling them with a newfound fervor. "They don't do anything,” an exasperated Obama said in Minnesota Friday, “except block me and call me names.” Well, the president is also in a bit of name-calling mood. Here are just a handful of times Obama has mocked conservative leaders in the last year...
