Global warming milestone as
scientists warn Earth has passed
carbon tipping point ´for good´
Daily Mail [UK], by Cheyenne MacDonald    Original Article

Atmospheric carbon dioxide has reached a historic threshold as levels remain above 400 parts per million through the end of September – the point in which values typically drop to their lowest. Climate scientists now warn that it’s ‘almost impossible’ that these numbers will fall next month, and likely won’t dip below 400ppm in the foreseeable future. While there may be brief, daily events in which the levels fall short of this amount, monthly values are set to keep climbing as the ‘rising half of the cycle’ begins, when carbon dioxide could even break 410 ppm. Data from the Mauna Loa Observatory

Syed Abedin, the father of top Hillary Clinton aide Huma, outlined his view of Sharia law and how the Western world has turned Muslims “hostile” during a wide-ranging video interview that shines newfound light on the reclusive thinker’s world views, according to footage exclusively obtained by the Washington Free Beacon. Abedin, a Muslim scholar who was tied to the Saudi Arabian government until his death in 1993, has remained somewhat of a mystery as the media turns its eye to his daughter Huma, a top Clinton campaign aide who recently announced her separation from husband Anthony Weiner following his multiple sex

The release of FBI documents relating to the Clinton email investigation reveal that top Clinton aide Huma Abedin picked one username that Clinton would use on the server, despite claiming she had no knowledge of the server. In recent heavily redacted FBI documents relating to the email hacks and the role that one Clinton “confidential assistant” played in the management of Clinton’s mobile devices and email security, certain documents outline a conversation between Clinton aides Huma Abedin and Monica Handley, Clinton Foundation official Justin Cooper.

First Lady Michelle Obama spoke Wednesday afternoon at the University of Pittsburgh´s Fitzgerald Field House as she ramps up her involvement in Hillary Clinton´s presidential campaign. Doors opened at 1 p.m. and more than 3,000 people - young and old - streamed in to listen to the First Lady. (Photo/Tweet) Around the country, Mrs. Obama is addressing the one demographic Clinton most needs and has been struggling with: ´Millennial´ voters under 30. Many supported Bernie Sanders in the Democratic primary; few seem excited about Clinton´s candidacy, some say they plan to stay home on election day. A recent ABC poll

Footage has emerged of a mob attacking a California Highway Patrol cruiser while the officer was trying to shut down an illegal sideshow at the weekend. The incident occurred at the intersection of North and Orange Avenues in Southwest Fresno on Sunday afternoon around 3.40pm. Police say a group of about 40 people blocked traffic by putting on a sideshow that involved reckless driving and cars doing burnouts. When the officers tried to break it up, the crowd violently turned on them and targeted the vehicle, with one heard shouting: ´F*** the police, n****. We run the streets, motherf*****.´ (Video)

With Alicia Machado, Trump

It’s fair to say that beauty pageants had lost a lot of their buzz by the time Donald Trump got into the business. But the mogul had no trouble making headlines when — just months after his 1996 purchase of the Miss Universe organization — he publicly fretted that the reigning queen was putting on too much weight. “This is someone who likes to eat,” he declared as he beckoned a fleet of journalists to come watch Alicia Machado work out at a gym — an event she later said she went along with only under threat of losing her crown.

The United States will send around 600 new troops to Iraq to assist local forces in the battle to retake Mosul from Islamic State that is expected later this year, U.S. and Iraqi officials said on Wednesday. The new deployment is the third such boost in U.S. troop levels in Iraq since April, underscoring the difficulties President Barack Obama has had in extracting the U.S. military from the country. "American President Barack Obama was consulted on a request from the Iraqi government for a final increase in the number of trainers and advisers under the umbrella of the international coalition

In the fall of 2010, I flew to Perugia, Italy, where I would spend the first semester of my senior year of college abroad. I had chosen the small Umbrian city partially because I found a program that allowed me to pursue an independent study and partially because I was hoping to improve my Italian, which, despite a father who’d grown up in Milan, was embarrassingly shoddy. Before I set off for my trip, I remember being preoccupied with the mundanities of study abroad: coordinating my flights, figuring out what to pack, researching cell-phone plans.

Will TPP Rise From The Dead?

The question about the TPP — the Trans-Pacific Partnership, President Obama´s signature trade agreement — is whether it´s already gone to the political morgue or whether it´s still in intensive care. Both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump oppose the agreement, while the president has urged ratification. With Obama´s term ending and his already-modest influence eroding by the day, TPP seems dead. But it may still be in intensive care. In a speech to the Peterson Institute for International Economics, a Washington think tank, Rep. Kevin Brady, R-Texas, chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee whose jurisdiction includes trade agreements, said that

Campaign advisers to Donald J. Trump, concerned that his focus and objectives had dissolved during the first presidential debate on Monday, plan to more rigorously prepare him for his next face-off with Hillary Clinton by drilling the Republican nominee on crucial answers, facts and counterattacks, and by coaching him on ways to whack Mrs. Clinton on issues even if he is not asked about them. Whether he is open to practicing meticulously is a major concern, however, according to some of these advisers and others close to Mr. Trump. While analysts from both parties and several focus groups declared Mrs.

More than 200 foreign tourists were feared trapped on an Indonesian volcano Wednesday after the peak erupted and sent a plume of ash 6,500 feet in the air, officials said. More than 1,000 people were evacuated after Mount Barujari erupted just before 3 p.m. Tuesday (3 a.m. ET), officials said. Rescuers initially were looking for at least 389 tourists — 333 of them foreigners — who had registered to climb the mountain since Sunday, according to a statement by the country´s National Disaster Management Authority issued late Tuesday. Around 120 of these hikers, most of them foreigners, were subsequently located and were



FBI Director: An FBI Agent Would ‘Be In Big

FBI director James Comey on Wednesday said that an FBI agent who operated a private email system similar to Hillary Clinton’s would be “in big trouble” at the bureau. Comey was responding in a House Judiciary Committee hearing to an allegation from Ohio Rep. Steve Chabot that the decision to not charge Clinton with mishandling classified information showed a “double standard.” Comey said that he disagreed with that characterization. But he added that she would not get off scot-free. “If we were to recommend she be prosecuted that would be a double-standard,” Comey said. “Because Mary and Joe at the

The State Department released 46 pages of previously unseen documents Tuesday under a Sept. 20, 2016, order issued by U.S. District Court Judge Richard Leon. The judge angrily told Department of Justice attorneys to stop dragging their feet, and ordered the State Department to conduct an expedited release of all

Gone are the heady days when Americans could laugh at the ineptitude of government as a gaggle of befuddled politicians offering unworkable solutions for misunderstood problems to be executed by bureaucratic ignoramuses. Now the survival of the country is at stake, threatened by Islamic terrorism and permanent political corruption. During a hearing this week before the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, FBI director James Comey faced pointed questions about recent terrorist shootings and bombings in the United States and about his failure to recommend indictment for Hillary Clinton in her private server scandal.

FBI Director James Comey is passionately defending the integrity of the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email setup, arguing that critics are unfair to suggest that agents were biased or succumbed to political pressure. “You can call us wrong, but don’t call us weasels. We are not weasels,” Comey declared Wednesday at a House Judiciary Committee hearing. “We are honest people and … whether or not you agree with the result, this was done the way you want it to be done.” The normally stoic FBI chief grew emotional and emphatic as he rejected claims from Republican lawmakers that the

Michelle Obama, campaigning for Hillary Clinton, unleashed a barrage of attacks on Donald Trump on Wednesday, calling the Republican nominee “erratic and threatening.” The first lady — who famously said in her convention speech this summer that when Republicans “go low, we go high” — portrayed Trump as a monster during a Philadelphia, Pennsylvania campaign rally. “If a candidate is erratic and threatening; if a candidate traffics in prejudice, fears and lies on the campaign trail; if a candidate thinks that not paying taxes makes you smart; or that it’s good business when people lose their homes; if a candidate

Barack Obama reportedly had Tim Kaine on his shortlist for consideration for vice president in 2008 but was concerned about Kaine´s lack of foreign policy experience. Kaine has since helped shore up that hole in his resume by being on the Senate Armed Services Committee for the past three years. While occupying that post, he voted to sustain the Democratic filibuster that kept the Senate from having a chance to vote on President Obama´s unilateral nuclear deal with Iran. Through that deal, which strengthens Iran, Obama effectively green-lighted Iran to become a nuclear power in the 2020s. This was hardly the

Things haven’t been the same in North Carolina since Charlotte Mayor Jennifer Roberts, in her selfish desire to be a progressive icon at her city’s expense, decided to legislate against uncomfortable looks in the locker room. That’s how this whole thing started. A sex offender who once fondled a 15-year-old boy as he slept wanted the rest of society to normalize transgender bathroom trips through legislation, even though transgender people say they were already using whatever bathrooms they wanted. He was the president of Charlotte’s LGBT Chamber of Commerce (as opposed to the straight one) which conducted a survey about

In just the past few days, Google searches in Spanish for "register to vote" have jumped over 2,200 percent. For comparison, there was a 430 percent spike in ´register to vote´ in English over the same time period. Give Google the credit. It offered a new search tool in Spanish for registering to vote. After the search tool was offered, the spike took off. Said Google: "On the eve of National Voter

A Fox News executive sent a memo Tuesday afternoon reminding television producers and the politics team that unscientific online polls "do not meet our editorial standards." Dana Blanton, the vice president of public-opinion research at Fox News, explained in the memo obtained by Business Insider that "online ´polls´ like the one on Drudge, Time, etc. where people can opt-in or self-select … are really just for fun."
