Palestinians say Israeli extremists killed teen
Associated Press, by Josef Federman    Original Article
Posted By: Zarin- 7/2/2014 11:08:28 PM     Post Reply
The Palestinians accused Israeli extremists of abducting and killing an Arab teenager and burning his body Wednesday, sparking hours of clashes in east Jerusalem and drawing charges that the youth was murdered to avenge the killings of three kidnapped Israeli teens. Seeking to calm the explosive situation, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu urged a swift inquiry into the "reprehensible murder" and called on people to respect the rule of law. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said it was clear extremist Jewish settlers were responsible and called on Israel to bring the killers to justice. "The settlers have killed and burned a little boy.

The federal government launched a major public relations campaign Wednesday to try to urge Central Americans not to send their children to the U.S. as illegal immigrants, vowing to press that message through radio ads and billboards in those countries and interviews with Spanish-language press in the U.S. The billboards tell parents it’s not true that their children can get papers signifying legal status in the U.S. — an attempt to push back against the prevailing belief among some in Central America that if they can cross the U.S. border, they can stay. “I thought it would be easy for

Sen. Thad Cochran’s (R-MS) top campaign operatives hung up on numerous members of the national media after a press conference call Wednesday. The call was intended to rebut state Sen. Chris McDaniel’s campaign’s allegations of voter fraud in Mississippi’s GOP primary runoff. Instead, it turned into a circus. “Quick question,” an unidentified man interrupted senior Cochran campaign adviser Austin Barbour on the press call. “You’ll have an opportunity to ask a question at the end of the call,” Barbour fired back. “Listen, I will give everyone an opportunity to ask a question when we get through. We’ll be happy to answer

Obama’s annoyance with
Congress boils over
Washington Post, by Dan Balz    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 7/2/2014 10:35:29 PM     Post Reply
President Obama’s displeasure with gridlock in Washington — and with the Republicans he blames for it — has been rising for months. This week it has boiled over. From the Rose Garden to the Cabinet Room to near the Key Bridge in Georgetown, the president has signaled more than mere annoyance at the state of affairs at the halfway point of this year. His disdain for congressional Republicans has steadily increased; his disrespect for their tactics has hardened into contempt. With immigration reform dead for this year, if not for the remainder of Obama’s presidency; with House Speaker John A.

President Obama doesn’t plan to accept an invitation from Texas Gov. Rick Perry to visit the Mexican border next week during a fundraising trip to witness the immigration crisis first-hand, the White House said Wednesday. “Right now there is no plan to visit the border,” said White House press secretary Josh Earnest. “The president’s getting regular updates on the situation.” But Mr. Earnest held open the possibility that the president could change his mind, saying “sometimes schedules change.” Mr. Perry called on the president to accompany him to the border next week to see for himself the problems of illegal

The other day my wife Cindy came across a hand-written letter from her uncle, Frank Keaton, that was written to his parents on February 8, 1944. Mr. Keaton landed on Omaha Beach before D-Day, one of a preliminary group to secure an area for the medics. He held the Silver Star, the Bronze Star, Two Oak Leaf Clusters and the Purple Heart. Shot while crossing the Rhine, he refused to go back behind the lines because he did not want to leave his company (he was part of the “Old Hickory” Division). He survived the war. His letter follows: February

The former first lady of the Philippines Imelda Marcos celebrated her 85th birthday today by paying a solemn visit to the body of her husband. Mrs Marcos visited the crypt of former president Ferdinand Marcos in Ilocos Norte in the north of the country and even kissed the glass coffin where his body lays in a white jacket, ceremonial sash and polished medals. The former leader of the Philippines has remained unburied since his death in 1989 and has lay in a temperature-controlled mausoleum since 1993. And Mrs Marcos remarked that her birthday wish would be for her husband to

This Independence Day weekend, drivers won´t see any relief from high gas prices.

O’Reilly Challenges Ingraham:
Your ‘Draconian’ Immigration

Laura Ingraham told Bill O’Reilly her immigration plan tonight, which includes deportation of every illegal immigrant in the country by the thousands, not only sounds “draconian,” but would have significant negative consequences for the Republican party in the near political future. He said, “I do believe that if you do have mass deportations and, you know, the rental agreement stuff, that the Republican party would become obsolete, that you would ensure Hillary Clinton‘s election in 2016 because the demographics don’t add up.” Ingraham told O’Reilly he’s “adopting the argument of the left,” but O’Reilly insisted that “mass deportations would be draconian”

Dolly Parton, the 68-year old grande dame of country who stole the hearts of the 120,000 strong crowd at the mother of all rock festivals--Glastonbury--has denied that her performance involved any lip-syncing. "My boobs are fake, my hair´s fake but what is real is my voice and my heart," she told the Sun newspaper in response to suggestions that her vocals were mimed. [Snip] “This should not overshadow what was truly a great gig and accomplished performance. Dolly adored every single moment.” Check out the footage of her performance of Jolene and decide for yourself.

On this day in 1776, the Declaration of Independence was signed and the door to the United States of America opened even wider. Nobler pens than mine have graced this event with prose, but I think it is worthwhile to reflect that however impossible the American Dream might seem to us today, it seemed a great deal less plausible to the Founding Fathers then. I defer to John Adams, who penned the following letter (shown here in part) to his wife, Abigail, describing the tumultuous events he helped orchestrate. Adams´s view that July 2 would be a day of celebration

Higher education is no longer just for kids in the top quarter or the top half of the class. College is for everyone," First lady Michelle Obama told a gathering of school counselors in Florida on Tuesday. "Every student in this country needs some higher education, whether that´s two-year degree, a four-year degree, or professional training of some sort." Mrs. Obama went to the annual meeting of the American School Counselor Association in Florida to thank counselors for taking on a demanding job without the resources necessary to meet the challenges. They, in turn, made her an honorary school counselor.

In his new book, Obama’s Enforcer: Eric Holder’s Justice Department (co-written with John Fund), Hans von Spakovsky reveals how our attorney general has turned America’s Department of Justice into “a politicized hotbed of left-wing legal activism.” The author revealed to Human Events the magnitude of Holder’s offenses highlighted in his book, offenses which should be an alarming wake-up call to every American: What do you reveal in your book that people might not know about Eric Holder? People would be shocked at just how much of an ideologue he is. I think they would [also] be surprised at just how far

The Levant, the region running inland from the eastern seaboard of the Mediterranean, has been fought over for millennia. Its vital trade and military roads linking Anatolia to north Africa and Arabia have been guarded and coveted since time immemorial. Control is everything, as Moses found out to his cost when he wanted to move north up the ancient King´s Highway out of the Sinai and into Edom (modern day southern Israel): "Now let us pass through your land. We will not pass through field or vineyard, or drink water from any well; we will go along the King’s Highway,

Global animal lovers are up in arms over a teenage Texas girl´s love of killing big African game, so much so that they´re even demanding she be banned from posting pictures of herself smiling alongside her trophies online. Nineteen-year-old Kendall Jones claims photos of dead hippos, elephants, lions and other beasts on Facebook are a testament to her hunting skills and dedication to game preservation. But critics are appalled by the teen´s beaming social media and are calling Kendall sick and depraved for killing the rare animals and boasting about it online.

A federal appellate court here ruled that a Mexican teenager fatally shot by a Border Patrol agent was protected by the U.S. Constitution despite the fact that he was on Mexican territory at the time of the incident. The ruling by the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in El Paso held that the family of 15-year-old Sergio Adrian Hernandez Güereca may proceed with their $25 million civil suit over his death in 2010. U.S. District Judge David Briones earlier had ruled that the boy´s family lacked the right to sue the government because Sergio was on Mexican territory when he was

The White House is not planning to reassess its strategy for handling thousands of unaccompanied minors streaming across the border amid mass protests. White House press secretary Josh Earnest said he had not spoken to President Obama about protests in California that blocked buses full of immigrant detainees from reaching a processing station. But Earnest said there was no expectation of changing strategies to deal with the flood of minors "at this point.” "At this point, what we´re focused on is making sure that we can ramp up the resources that are necessary to meet this growing need," Earnest said.

The White House said Biden called Osama al-Nujaifi, who served as speaker of the previous session of Iraq’s Council of Representatives, to express "the United States’ strong support for Iraq in the fight against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant and concern for those Iraqis affected." "The two agreed on the importance of Iraqis moving expeditiously to form a new government capable of uniting the country," the administration

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan is running for president, and Turkish media have noticed that his campaign logo looks a lot like President Obama’s. Obama and Erdogan have been close, with Obama calling the Turkish leader “an outstanding friend.” According to Hurriyet Daily News: Both logos feature a sun to symbolize hope, with the circular shape of the Erdogan logo tracing the outline of a tunnel. According to AKP officials, the sun – like the light at the end of a tunnel – is where a hard, zigzagging road leads, in reference to Erdogan’s “journey of life.” They added

  



NSA Internet spying program

WASHINGTON – A federal watchdog group said Wednesday that the National Security Agency’s data collection and surveillance program has been “an effective tool” for the country. Seven months earlier, the same bipartisan group found fundamental flaws with another program, arguing in a January report that the NSA’s collection of domestic calling records “lacked a viable legal foundation” and recommended that it be shut down. But the latest report, voted on by the five-member board, found that the NSA´s collection of Internet data within the United States passes constitutional muster and employs "reasonable" safeguards designed to protect the rights of Americans.

Afghanistan: Taliban forces are moving hard against the democratic government of Afghanistan, where Obama said we were fighting the smart war, requiring that we lose the dumb war in Iraq. We´ve now lost both. Three years ago, President Obama pretty much announced that the U.S. had won in Afghanistan. He said, "we set clear objectives: to refocus on al-Qaida, to reverse the Taliban´s momentum, and train Afghan security forces to defend their own country. I also made it clear that our commitment would not be open-ended, and that we would begin to draw down our forces this July." Looking forward, Obama promised, "by

Education: As we predicted, the Obama regime´s anti-suspension policy is backfiring. Los Angeles teachers complain unsuspended violent kids are intimidating them and effectively ruling their classrooms. In 2011, the Education Department accused the Los Angeles Unified School District of discriminating against black boys, who were suspended for bad behavior at a disproportionate rate. The agency ordered it to reduce suspensions in the hopes that unruly minority students would stay in school and graduate. "The district shall develop and implement a comprehensive plan to eliminate the disproportionality in the discipline imposed on African-American students," the five-page decree says. The superintendent agreed

In a recent townhall meeting, Bloomberg Businessweek editor-in-chief talked about the company´s new acquisition of political reporters and "Game Change" authors John Heilemann and Mark Halperin, and then bragged that, "One of our biggest advantages in politics is we are not ideological, we are not a sewer." Anyone even somewhat familiar with the work of Halperin and Heilemann knows how laughably dishonest that statement is. Heilemann is by far the worst of the two. While Halperin has his better moments, Heilemann has defended Secretary of State John Kerry´s reprehensible remark about the possibility of Israel becoming an apartheid state, told Rand Paul
