The Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) has published an article in the latest issue of its magazine, Dabiq, by jihadi bride Umm Summayyah, estimating that First Lady Michelle Obama is only worth $40 on the terrorist group’s slave market. Summayyah also defends the rape of thousands of Yazidi females. The article, titled “Slave Girls or Prostitutes,” justifies the horrific actions inflicted upon the females ISIS kidnaps as they spread their caliphate through Iraq and Syria. She also promised to bring this lavish slave market to the West. “I swear by Allah, O you who feign to be knowledgeable and shout with falsehood

CARACAS, Venezuela — Venezuelans are dumping their rapidly-depreciating currency at a quicker pace, leading to a staggering plunge in its free-market value, as the crisis-plagued economy edges closer to an outbreak of hyperinflation. DolarToday, a widely followed website that tracks exchanges made near the Colombian border, reported Friday that the bolivar had lost a quarter of its value over the last seven days. Everyone in smartphone-obsessed Caracas seemed to learn of the crash at the same time as the DolarToday app, a ubiquitous tool in the South American country, sent out a series of messages announcing the new rates under the headline

Senator Sessions’s floor speech against Obamatrade on Friday could go down as one of the most important Senate speeches ever. Already it is getting rave reviews: Rush Limbaugh hailed it (Odds are Obamatrade screws America): “Jeff Sessions had a massive op-ed piece and floor speech in the Senate about this.” Michelle Malkin gushed: “I wish that Sen. Jeff Sessions would run for president, because I would sign up in a heartbeat.” Democratic Senator Ron Wyden of Oregon set the stage for Sessions’s speech by lauding Obamatrade as “the most progressive trade policy in our country’s history” because it regulates much more

DENVER - For the first time in 85 years, Denver will not have a Memorial Day parade. However, there is a tribute planned. The ceremony, in its 16th year, happens at POF Hall on Sherman Street, just south of the Capitol, at 10 a.m. Saturday. The names of Colorado´s fallen from the Iraq and Afghanistan Wars will be read aloud. Service members killed in other wars will be remembered with a wreath laying. The Denver parade was canceled this year because of differences between the City and County of Denver and the Denver United Veterans Council. The Denver UVC said

After Friday´s release of Hillary Clinton´s secret emails related to Libya, the Wall Street Journal ran a story headlined, "Emails Show Clinton Was Warned Over Security in Benghazi Ahead of Attack." The headline oversold the story. The only warnings about Benghazi security in the emails are from April and June of 2011, more than a year before the Sept. 11, 2012 terrorist attack, along with one brief mention in an email from February 2012, seven months before. The thing is, the Clinton emails just don´t have much in them about the violence that would ultimately lead to the Benghazi attacks,

As a speaker paid by the internet firm, Salesforce.com, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had nothing but praise in 2014 for the cloud computing company and its innovative CEO Marc Benihoff, a Democratic Party bundler and big supporter of the Clinton Foundation, according to a pirated video of the session posted on YouTube. Hiring Hillary was a way to get a noted public official with clear 2016 presidential ambitions to hold court with company officials and tout its accomplishments. As the video shows, Clinton praised Salesforce for its generous philanthropy, including donations to the Clinton family foundation, and said

This graphic comes from a new report by the Alliance for Excellent Education called “Why ESEA Must Fill the Missing Middle,” a reference to the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, which, in its current version is known as No Child Left Behind, and is now being rewritten by Congress. The report shows how federal funding is concentrated in the early years and in college — and gives “paltry” sums to middle and high school in comparison to early childhood, elementary schools and post-secondary education. The report notes that several programs designed to boost student achievement in high school have been



Fiorina: Clinton ´must not be president´

GOP presidential candidate Carly Fiorina on Saturday accused President Obama and his former secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, of poorly representing America’s interests on the world stage. “The world is a dangerous and tragic place when America is not leading,” Fiorina told the crowd at the Southern Republican Leadership Conference in Oklahoma City. “Nowhere is leadership more important now than in the world.” The former CEO of Hewlett-Packard said Obama was on the verge of “terrible deal” with Iran, in which he "has violated every rule of good negotiation.” She added that her experience managing a multinational

In December, Science published a paper claiming that people could change their minds about same-sex marriage after talking for just 20 minutes with a gay person. It seemed too good to be true — and it was. On Wednesday, the journal distanced itself from the study, after its accuracy was disputed, (Snip) News organizations, which had reported on the study, scrambled to correct the record. Retractions can be good things, since even scientists often fail to acknowledge their mistakes, preferring instead to allow erroneous findings simply to wither away in the back alleys of unreproducible literature.

Hillary Rodham Clinton will hold a string of fund-raisers on June 1, including one hosted by the ex-wife of Eliot Spitzer, the former governor of New York who resigned amid scandal in 2008. (Snip) Some of Mrs. Clinton’s allies still recall with frustration the Democratic presidential primary debate in October 2007 in Philadelphia, when she stumbled over a question about a plan by Mr. Spitzer to allow driver’s licenses for unauthorized immigrants. That stumble was seen as contributing to her downward spiral in the polls. Mr. O’Malley has frequently talked about his support for such driver’s licenses.

La Union, Panama - "Peace is not a bad thing, but it´s unlikely to solve our problems," says Director of Panama´s Border Police, Frank Abrego. He is referring to the prospect of a peace deal between the Colombian government and left-wing rebels of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (Farc). Most of Panama´s security problems originate south of its border, in Colombia. Colombia is one of the world´s top three producers of coca, the raw ingredient of cocaine, and huge amounts of it are smuggled from Colombia to the United States. Panama, Colombia's northern neighbour, is often the first stop for those smuggling the drug

Washington - The sleepy United States senators thought they were done voting. But then, around 1 a.m. on the Saturday before Memorial Day, Senator Rand Paul, Republican of Kentucky and presidential candidate, marched spryly to the Senate floor to let it be known that, no, he would not agree to extend the federal government’s bulk collection of phone records program. Not even for one day. With that, Senator Mitch McConnell, a fellow Kentucky Republican who only a few hours before was ebullient with the passage of a major trade package, was reduced to ordering his colleagues back to Washington next

The militant group ISIS is committing a “staggering array of atrocities” against women as it captures more territory in Iraq and Syria, according to a senior U.N. official tasked with investigating sexual violence in conflict. Women in ISIS strongholds are routinely raped, tortured, enslaved, and murdered by the Islamic extremists, who have made the brutalization of females a central element of their ideology, according to Zainab Hawa Bangura.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) recently proposed the Parental Choice in Education Act as a way to provide more opportunity for parents in choosing which schools would be the best fit for their children. The legislation would use $70 million in taxpayer money to create an education tax credit for families making $60,000 or less. Parents who qualify could receive up to $500 in a tax credit or refund for each student attending a private school. Among other benefits, it would also encourage more private school scholarships.

With votes tallied from nearly all of Ireland´s 43 parliamentary constituencies, the measure will sail through with more than 60% of voters approving, according to official results.

ST. LOUIS, Mo. — Here are 10 fast facts about Memorial Day, a holiday honoring American soldiers who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country: • Even though numerous communities had been independently celebrating Memorial Day for years, the federal government declared Waterloo, N.Y. the official birthplace of Memorial Day.

New York - Even as the Senate remains at an impasse over the future of US domestic surveillance powers, the National Security Agency will be legally unable to collect US phone records in bulk by the time Congress returns from its Memorial Day vacation. The administration, as suggested in a memo it sent Congress on Wednesday, declined to ask a secret surveillance court for another 90-day extension of the order necessary to collect US phone metadata in bulk. The filing deadline was Friday, hours before the Senate failed to come to terms on a bill that would have formally repealed the NSA domestic surveillance

Kabul - The commander of international forces in Afghanistan said on Saturday that the Islamic State group is actively recruiting in the country, but is not yet operational there. General John F Campbell said the group’s sophisticated social-media campaign was attracting Taliban fighters based in Afghanistan and Pakistan disgruntled with the lack of progress in more than 10 years of fighting to overthrow the Kabul government. As a result, many were pledging allegiance to Isis, which controls about a third of Syria and Iraq, Campbell told reporters. “We don’t want it to continue to grow,” he said,
