New laws will stop
travellers from invading
Daily Express [UK], by Ted Jeowry    Original Article

Travellers will be prevented from setting up illegal caravan sites that can escalate into costly, violent eviction battles under new council powers, writes Ted Jeory. Communities Secretary Eric Pickles will give town halls strengthened powers to issue temporary “stop” notices linked to unlimited fines to block gypsy land grabs. He hopes his new measures will avoid a repeat of the violent stand-offs at sites such as Dale Farm in Essex last year. Travellers use planning loopholes to buy land and move caravans on to it over a weekend or bank holiday when councils can be too slow or under-equipped

A man from the northwestern suburbs allegedly planned to burn down nearly 50 churches in Miami, Okla., officials said. Gregory Arthur Weiler II, 23, was arrested Thursday and has been charged with two terrorism charges, according to Miami Police Chief George Haralson.(Snip) Investigators found a “recipe for making Molotov cocktails, a list of 48 local area churches, a hand drawn map of the listed 48 churches grouped and circled with a key detailing how many nights and how many people, and a written outline of his intent plant bombs,” the affidavit said.

The Israeli air force shot down an unmanned drone Saturday over the northern Negev desert, the nation's military said. The Israeli Defense Forces spotted the drone, which did not carry any weapons or explosives, hovering over Gaza before it entered Israeli airspace, military spokeswoman Avital Leibovich said. Forces kept the drone under surveillance until a fighter jet shot it down around 10 a.m. Saturday over the Yatir Forest, the IDF said. Leibovich declined to discuss the drone's route or whether it had flown over military installations.

Up and down the country, events regularly take place for people to show their support for our brave servicemen and women and remember those who lost their lives in battle. But rarely do they look as impressive as this. Thousands of leather-clad bikers today made a pilgrimage to a war memorial to show their support for the Armed Forces. The riders arrived in their droves throughout this morning for a service at the National Memorial Arboretum in Alrewas, Staffordshire. Called Ride to the Wall, the event included many riders who had messages emblazoned on the back of their leather jackets

Radical Muslim cleric Abu Hamza yesterday appeared at a court in New York--and demanded the return of his notorious hooks. The hate preacher, who lost his hands in an explosion, did not enter a plea during the brief hearing and was remanded in custody ahead of his next appearance on Tuesday. The former imam at the Finsbury Park mosque, who had his hooks removed for 'security reasons', has demanded they are returned so 'he can use his arms'. Also in New York, Adel Abdul Bary and Khaled al-Fawwaz pleaded not guilty while earlier in the day Babar Ahmad and

Mitt Romney is worth
$250 million. Why so little?

Mitt Romney is indisputably a very rich man. And if he is elected president on Nov. 6, he will become one of the wealthiest people ever to hold the office. But exactly how wealthy is Romney? The figure that gets tossed around is $250 million in net worth — meaning the total value of his assets, financial and others, minus any debts. It’s a big number, but frankly, it seems low. Given the industry in which he made his fortune (private equity), the era when he made it (the 1980s and 1990s) and the wealth of his peers

Forgive me for rehashing Wednesday night’s debate yet again, but some of the postmortems impel me to do so. I’m not talking about the comical excuses for Obama’s failure like the poor fellow who thought Mitt Romney was carrying a crib sheet and then had to admit it was a handkerchief. Or the well-known massage enthusiast who argued the difference between the candidates was due to the Denver altitude as if this were not a presidential debate but an abruptly scheduled NBA doubleheader. No, I’m talking about the more serious explanations for the president’s incompetence



Romney praises Lehrer,

Joined by his wife Ann at a rally in Florida late Friday, Republican nominee Mitt Romney sounded a particularly gentle tone, pausing variously to defend embattled presidential debate moderator Jim Lehrer, casually dismiss bitter accusations circulating online that he used a cheat sheet during the Wednesday night debate, and publicly reflect on the recent deaths of several close friends. Lehrer, a PBS veteran who has moderated a dozen presidential debates, has taken heat from pundits and late-night talk show hosts for offering broad questions and failing to enforce the Denver debate’s time restrictions.

LOS ANGELES -A federal judge in Los Angeles will decide next week whether the man behind an anti-Islamic film that sparked violence in the Middle East should be sent back to prison for violating his probation. Mark Basseley Youseff is expected in a courtroom on Wednesday. He was convicted in 2010 of bank fraud. Prosecutors say Youseff had eight violations, including lying to his probation officers and using aliases. Youseff also goes by the name of Nakoula Basseley Nakoula. The 55-year-old was remanded into custody without bond after he was determined to be a flight risk.

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The president and first lady are celebrating a delayed 20th wedding anniversary today. Dining in Georgetown this evening, the first couple is commemorating the occasion at the urban chic Bourbon Street restaurant, located in the Four Seasons hotel. The true date of their nuptials fell on Wednesday, which happened to be the day of the first debate between President Obama and Republican nominee Mitt Romney. The president pointed out the occasion at the top of the debate, reminding his wife that in a year he wouldn’t be able to announce it on live television.

WAYNE — Nearly two dozen people were injured — eight critically — early today when a fully loaded chartered tour bus en route from Toronto to Brooklyn overturned on a Route 80 exit ramp, slid down a concrete abutment and came to rest on its side, State Police and hospital officials said. State Police said 23 people were injured in the crash and taken to several area hospitals. Eight critically injured patients were sent to St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center in Paterson, hospital spokeswoman Liz Asani said. She said she had no immediate details on the extent of the injuries.

Campaign 2012: When an incumbent Democratic president is virtually tied in a congressional district he carried by high double digits in 2008, and is losing in the suburbs of his hometown, there could be trouble brewing. In August, a poll by the Joliet, Ill.-based polling firm of McKeon and Associates, found President Obama leading challenger Mitt Romney in Cook County, which includes Chicago and its suburbs, by a 12-point margin 49-37. That would seem to be a comfortable edge, but it is significantly smaller than traditional margins needed to outweigh

Anderson Cooper calls out

In the “Keeping Them Honest” segment of his show “Anderson Cooper 360,” an incredulous Anderson Cooper on Friday accused Republican nominee Mitt Romney of pulling a “stunning 180,” suggesting the former Massachusetts governor had turned precisely half as much as Cooper does in a typical television broadcast in an effort to appear more moderate to undecided voters. “Clearly, in a campaign with hundreds, if not thousands of speeches … now and then, you’re going to say something that doesn’t come out right. In this case, I said something that’s just completely wrong,” Romney told Fox News’ Sean Hannity

The Obama campaign has been reeling since losing the first Presidential debate of this election cycle in front of 67 million viewers. They've tried--and thus far failed--to craft a narrative to explain away the debacle in Denver. Previously, we reported to you that Obama Senior Advisor David Plouffe, who ran the President's successful 2008 campaign, (falsely) accused Mitt Romney of lying. In a rare comedic moment from the typically robotic former Vice President Al Gore, he suggested on Current TV that the Mile High City's altitude was the reason Obama was low on energy and

The House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform has subpoenaed the leading security official at U.S. consulate in Libya for a upcoming hearing, an attempt to learn more details about the deadly terror attack last month on the compound. The committee, led by California Republican Rep. Darrell Issa, has issued a subpoena to Utah Army National Guard Green Beret Lt. Col. Andy Wood, Fox News learned Saturday. Wood led a 16-member Special Forces site security team responsible for protecting U.S. personnel at the consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

President Obama's star-studded fundraising concert Sunday at Nokia Theater -- with the likes of Jon Bon Jovi, Jennifer Hudson, Stevie Wonder and Katy Perry -- is expected to snarl traffic in the area. The president is expected to arrive Sunday to attend several functions, Los Angeles police said in a statement. Details were not available, but police said his motorcade would move through the Westside on Sunday afternoon, with temporary street closures. In late afternoon, the motorcade will travel to downtown Los Angeles for more events, with potential brief closures along the 10 Freeway and streets

A new Norwegian study, “Comparative Environmental Life Cycle Assessment of Conventional and Electric Vehicles” published in the Journal of Industrial Ecology (full paper here) found that the “use phase” of electric vehicles (EVs) “powered by the present European electricity mix offers a 10% to 24% decrease in global warming potential (GWP) relative to conventional diesel or gasoline vehicles assuming lifetimes of 150,000 km. However, EVs exhibit the potential for significant increases in human toxicity, freshwater eco-toxicity, freshwater eutrophication, and metal depletion impacts, largely emanating from the vehicle supply chain.” The authors call that “problem shifting.”

President Obama employs advisers, strategists, speechwriters. But here's one job that sounds as if it might be the most fun: Presidential DJ. Instead of spinning speeches and debates, these guys spin music to keep up the energy at campaign events, receptions and fundraisers. DJ Cassidy, who has been employed by the president since 2009, was first hired to play at the mid-Atlantic inaugural ball. Since the inauguration, he has spun for the president a number of times. He was in charge of the playlist at Obama's 50th birthday bash, a White House dance party, a Gen44 reception

Hi, everybody. Four years after the worst economic crisis of our lifetimes, we’re seeing signs that, as a nation, we’re moving forward again. After losing about 800,000 jobs a month when I took office, our businesses have now added 5.2 million new jobs over the past two and a half years. And on Friday, we learned that the unemployment rate is now at its lowest level since I took office.

A few streets from the scene of the September 11 attacks that he hailed as "a towering day in history", Abu Hamza was in a New York courtroom on Saturday night facing terrorist charges. The one-eyed Islamic preacher appeared in the dock minus the hook that he has used since his hands were blown off by a bomb after US officials ordered it to be removed them for security reasons. He stood in the dock, the stumps of his arms protruding from a navy blue jumpsuit.

Orlando, Fla. - Ann Romney surprised volunteers at a Victory Center here this morning, popping in with two pizza pies in hand to cheers of shock and awe. “We appreciate all the work you’re doing, all the help you’re giving us and how important this state is to us, and how important this Florida election is for all of you, and I hope you’re having a great time making the phone calls,” Romney said, standing next to a row of people making phone calls on behalf of her husband’s campaign.

A North Korean soldier has killed two of his superiors and defected to South Korea across the countries' heavily armed border in a rare crossing that prompted South Korean troops to immediately beef up their border patrol, officials said. The soldier shot his platoon and squad leaders before crossing the western side of the Demilitarised Zone at around noon, a Defense Ministry official said, citing the soldier's statement after he was taken into custody by South Korean border guards. (Snip) He said South Korean guards heard six gunshots before the North Korean soldier crossed the border. He also said the

Conservatives attending CPAC Colorado were already excited about Mitt Romney’s debate performance, but a surprise visit from the candidate boosted their spirits even further. Conference attendees grew curious after spotting Secret Service agents prior to the panel that was to include four of the Romney sons. A smiling Mitt Romney joined the stage from behind the curtain, bringing the audience to their feet. While many in the media suggested that Romney pivoted to the center during the debate, conservatives I talked to at the conference didn’t seem to notice.

A suspected Islamic terrorist was shot dead by French police in front of his veiled wife and their young child today. The man, in his 30s, was gunned down after firing a .357 Magnum revolver as armed officers swarmed into his house in the eastern city of Strasbourg. Seven others, including another gunman in Paris, were arrested during a nationwide anti-terrorist operation. All were suspected of being involved in an attack on a Jewish shop in which one person was slightly injured last month. The extreme violence used by the authorities in the face of Muslim extremism was praised

Mitt Romney's commanding performance in Wednesday night's first presidential debate has started to yield results. The Republican candidate has raised $12million in online donations over the last couple of days, and has also received a boost in some polls. The news comes as Barack Obama's lacklustre showing continues to be mocked by top comedians - even those who are strong supporters of the President. Mr Romney's campaign took in a donation haul of $12million via his website in just 48 hours after the conclusion of the debate in Denver, according to the Wall Street Journal.
