Washington Post owner Jeffrey P. Bezos is replacing Publisher Katharine Weymouth with Frederick J. Ryan Jr., a former Reagan administration official who was part of the founding leadership team of Politico, a primarily digital news organization that competes with The Post on political coverage, the company announced Tuesday. The departure of Weymouth, 48, ends eight decades of Graham family leadership of The Post, which her great-grandfather bought in 1933. Bezos, who acquired The Post for $250 million in a sale announced in August 2013, initially kept the senior leadership team intact. He told Weymouth during a visit to Washington, on

Oil Output to Exceed 2 Million
Barrels Per Day in West Texas
Breitbart Texas, by Kristin Tate    Original Article

HOUSTON, Texas -- As Texas´ gas and oil industry continues to hum, some of the state´s old oil fields could start producing millions of barrels per day. This rings especially true for West Texas´ Permian Basin, which is expected to soon produce more than 2 million barrels of oil per day. Thanks to technological advances including fracking, some older oil fields in Texas are now booming again, according to the Wall Street Journal. "Refracking"--the process of drilling in wells where fracking took place years ago--is simultaneously taking hold of the industry and encouraging the industry´s boom. Chief Executive of Athlon

On Monday, as millions of American workers gathered with family and friends to celebrate and mark the end of summer, the nation´s union bosses were preparing to inject tens of millions of dollars from their members´ paychecks into the midterm elections in November. Unions have already spent $70 million to protect the Democrat majority in the Senate. Even this amount is likely to be dwarfed by a flood of money and manpower in the final weeks of the campaign. Union money, which is continually replenished through dues from members´ pay, is just the most public expression of union political power.

Nick Olivas became a father at 14, a fact he wouldn´t learn for eight years. While in high school, Olivas had sex with a 20-year-old woman. As he sees it now, she took advantage of a lonely kid going through a rough patch at home.State law says a child younger than 15 cannot consent with an adult under any circumstance, making Olivas a rape victim. But Olivas didn´t press charges and says he didn´t realize at the time that it was even something to consider. The two went their separate ways.

Nashville, Tenn. — Thirty-two teens escaped from a Nashville youth detention center by crawling under a weak spot in a fence late Monday, and 10 of them were still on the run Tuesday, a spokesman said. The teens — ages 14 to 19 — left their rooms and went into a common area, where they overwhelmed 16 to 18 staff members, Tennessee Department of Children´s Services spokesman Rob Johnson said. (Snip) The state-owned center in northwest Nashville held 78 teens at the time of the escape, and most had committed at least three felonies, Johnson said. The center has a school, offers vocational

American eating habits have improved — except among the poor, evidence of a widening wealth gap when it comes to diet. Yet even among wealthier adults, food choices remain far from ideal, a 12-year study found. (Snip)Scores for low-income adults were lower than the average and barely budged during the years studied. They averaged almost four points lower than those for high-income adults at the beginning; the difference increased to more than six points in 2009-10. Higher scores mean greater intake of heart-healthy foods including vegetables, fruits, whole grains and healthy fats, and a high score means a low risk

Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough defended President Barack Obama’s “slip” in saying his administration had “no strategy” to deal with ISIS, but also asked former White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs if comments like that induced pure panic among press secretaries. “Are there oxygen masks in the press secretary’s office when the president says something like he said last week, where the oxygen masks drop and you can catch a deep breath before you go talk to him?” Scarborough asked. “We all know it was a slip. But everybody in the white house had to gasp when he did that,

The federal government has reportedly lost track of more than 6,000 foreigners on student visas, some of whom may be in the country "to do us harm." According to an ABC News investigation, "58,000 students overstayed their visas in the past year. Of those, 6,000 were referred to agents for follow-up because they were determined to be of heightened concern." ABC found that "the number of foreign nationals obtaining visas to study in the U.S. has grown from 662,966 in 2003 to more than 1.2 million in 2012."

CBS News Political Director John Dickerson had some harsh words for Democrats as the 2014 midterm election kicks into high gear. Appearing on CBS This Morning on Tuesday, September 2, Dickerson insisted that for the 2014 Senate races “there are three races in West Virginia, South Dakota, Montana that are gone. Those are basically going to go to the Republicans.” [See video below.] The segment began with co-host Charlie Rose highlighting how “the latest CBS News poll shows just 36 percent of Americans approve of President Obama’s foreign policy” before turning to the CBS News Political Director to dissect the

In Governors´ Races, Parties Are

Democrats are bullish about their opportunity to win the governor´s mansion in Kansas and Republicans have sent staffers out to Hawaii for what they view as a promising opportunity to turn the state red. Those statements may seem surprising given both states´ political leanings—but they´re a testament to the fact that the 2014 gubernatorial map has shifted considerably in recent months, a new reality that may cause both parties to move resources to places they never expected at the beginning of the year. Unlike the 2014 Senate map, which has remained relatively static over the course of the cycle, the

An attorney for the family of an Alaska couple murdered last year sent a scathing letter to U.S. Sen. Mark Begich claiming that his political ad using the couple’s case to attack Republican challenger Dan Sullivan is “inciting” the family and “tearing [it] apart.” Bryon Collins, the family attorney, sent the letter, titled “Second Demand To Take Down All Case References And Ads,” to Begich on Monday. “The family directly and without question has told your campaign they want no part of this,” Collins writes in the letter, obtained by The Daily Caller. Collins was referring to an ad first aired by Begich’s

Republican U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell has put a little more distance between him and his Democratic opponent, Alison Lundergan Grimes, but the race remains within the margin of error, according to the latest Bluegrass Poll. The poll, conducted by SurveyUSA for The Courier-Journal and three other news outlets, found that McConnell holds a 46 percent to 42 percent lead among likely voters over Grimes. Libertarian David Patterson gets 5 percent of the vote, and 8 percent remain undecided. It´s the third consecutive Bluegrass Poll that has found McConnell improving his chances for re-election in November. Before that, the poll found Grimes ahead

The 10 Most Vulnerable Senators

There is a new chart-topper in Roll Call’s latest monthly ranking of the 10 most vulnerable senators. Montana’s appointed Sen. John Walsh was by far the most endangered incumbent in the chamber at the time of the previous installment in early August, but his decision last month to not seek a full term opened the top slot to a couple other worthy contenders. Sen. Mark Pryor, D-Ark., is still in a perilous political position, but Louisiana Sen. Mary L. Landrieu has leapfrogged him on the list to become the Senate’s most vulnerable incumbent. The Democrat is pushing hard to eclipse 50 percent on

Any one of five or six campaigns could determine which party wins control of the Senate in November. Yet the race in Iowa is worth an extra dash of attention, not only because it’s been among the most entertaining – full of target practice, hog castration and the Koch brothers – but also because of the ideological distance between the two candidates. It’s even bigger than in many other races. In Arkansas, Mark Pryor, the incumbent locked in a tough race, is among the Senate’s most conservative Democrats. In New Hampshire, Scott Brown, the challenger, is a well-known moderate among

Labor Day weekend is over, which means one thing to political junkies: The fall campaign season kicks into high gear. Specifically, candidates and committees tap into all that cash they’ve raised over the last two years to inundate the airwaves with advertising for the final two-month stretch (yes, even more than they already have). This midterm election, mega donors — freed up by the McCutcheon v. Federal Election Commission decision to give unlimited amounts to candidates — are digging even deeper into their bank accounts, our colleague Matea Gold writes. With so much money influencing the political process,

The US military has carried out air strikes in Somalia, reportedly targeting a convoy carrying the leader of militant group al-Shabab. It is not clear if Ahmed Abdi Godane was hit in the strikes some 240km (150 miles) south of the capital, Mogadishu. An al-Shabab source told the BBC at least nine people were killed. The al-Qaeda-linked group has not commented officially on the attack. US officials say they will release further details later. The US has carried out several air strikes in recent years in Somalia where al-Shabab controls many central and southern areas. African leaders are meeting in Kenya on Tuesday to discuss

One of Florida´s top political editors labeled former Florida Governor Jeb Bush the "loser of the week" and noted that his full-throated embrace of Common Core is making it less likely that he would secure the GOP nomination if he decides to run for President of the United States.

This ad against Mary Landrieu is rough
Washington Post, by Aaron Blake    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 9/2/2014 10:50:08 AM     Post Reply
As our own Philip Rucker first reported last week, Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.) is the latest senator to be confronted by questions about just how much she actually lives in her home state. Where Landrieu differs from others who have faced similar questions, though, is that she has routinely worked on issues important to the District of Columbia. Hence, there are a whole bunch of news clips talking about her focus on D.C. -- which isn´t exactly helpful for her very difficult reelection race. American Crossroads is up with a damning new web ad splicing together many of these clips. It ends with a particularly devastating quote

Control of the US Senate largely hinges on the outcome of election in 12 states. In half of these contests, the Democrat candidate is the scion of rich political legacies. In their own way, these contests will test the proposition that America is a land without an aristocracy. Obama´s "Dreams of My Father" may be less a memoir than a political blueprint. For many Democrat candidates this year, their last name is their greatest political asset. In Arkansas, Sen. Mark Pryor is seeking reelection for a seat long held by his father, and former Governor, David Pryor. Colorado Sen. Mark Udall

Louisiana Sen. Mary Landrieu is one of the most vulnerable Democratic incumbents this cycle, and her re-election race is one of the most watched. (Snip) When the Washington Post reported that Landrieu is registered to vote under her parents’ address, she explained that she had lived in that house for most of her life, and stays there when she is not performing Senate duties in Washington or traveling around her home state. The Post reported that Landrieu and her siblings, along with their mother, are part of a limited liability corporation that owns the home.

President Obama was given detailed and specific intelligence about the rise of the Islamic State as part of his daily briefing for at least a year before the group seized large swaths of territory over the summer, a former Pentagon official told Fox News. The official -- who asked not to be identified because the President´s Daily Brief is considered the most authoritative, classified intelligence community product analyzing sensitive international events for the president -- said the data was strong and "granular" in detail. The source said a policymaker "could not come away with any other impression: This is getting bad." Obama, unlike

Much of what we hear about the plight of American women is false. Some faux facts have been repeated so often they are almost beyond the reach of critical analysis. Though they are baseless, these canards have become the foundation of Congressional debates, the inspiration for new legislation and the focus of college programs. Here are five of the most popular myths that should be rejected by all who are genuinely committed to improving the circumstances of women.
