´It was industrial-scale exploitation´:
Roma gang in Paris who sent
children to rob holidaymakers
jailed for up to eight years each
Daily Mail [UK], by Peter Allen    Original Article

Twenty Roma parents and other family members who sent their own children on to the streets of Paris to rob holidaymakers were beginning prison sentences of up to eight years each yesterday. British visitors were among the hundreds of tourists targeted each day around the Louvre, Notre Dame and the Eiffel Tower by some 40 youngsters. There were disturbances in the court late on Friday afternoon when the tough sentences were handed down. The heaviest went to women--including mothers--involved in the crime network. The senior judge of three involved in the case, Dominique Piot, said: ‘Each minor had to steal

Joan Rivers Cuts Short CNN

After apparently becoming incensed with a CNN anchor, Joan Rivers cut short a taped nationally televised interview. The Fashion Police personality walked off of a CNN Newsroom interview with host Fredricka Whitfield after the conversation turned to her boundaries when telling jokes. "This whole interview is becoming a defensive interview," Rivers said, also protesting that Whitfield´s line of questioning was mainly "negative." "You are not the one to interview a person who does humor, sorry," she added, before walking off the set. Whitfield later stated that she at first wondered if Rivers walking out of the interview was a stunt.

LA Times Creates False Impression
on Protester Arrests in Murrieta

Deceitful. That is the best way to describe a Los Angeles Times report about five protesters arrested yesterday in Murrieta, CA. Nowhere in the story are the identities of the protestors indicated; whether they are pro-amnesty or against the dumping of the illegals in a federal facility in their city. Although the truth is very carefully avoided in the Los Angeles Times, you can find it right way in the headline at the Gateway Pundit: "FIVE COUNTER-PROTESTERS ARRESTED During Tense Standoff at Murrieta Illegal Immigrant Rally." The co-conspirators in the Los Angeles Times attempt to keep its readers from learning

The Obama years: ´The trailers
were great, the movie was horrible´
Telegraph (UK), by Matt Lewis    Original Article
Posted By: mitzi- 7/5/2014 9:25:46 PM     Post Reply
As a poll of American voters ranks Barack Obama as the worst president of all time, Matt Lewis says his presidency has been a disastrous flop - talented and much-hyped but ultimately unsatisfying. The trailers were great, but the movie was horrible. Six years in, that´s the general consensus on the Obama presidency. Having ridden a wave of "hope and change" to the White House, President Barack Obama has failed to deliver on his huge box office, err, ballot box expectations. Just how bad is it? Since it is summer "blockbuster" season, I´ll explain thusly: There´s a difference between being bad

A Florida resident and cousin of a Palestinian teenager killed in Jerusalem this week is the young man seen in separate videos being held down and pummeled by men in the uniform of Israeli security forces, relatives said. Tariq Khdeir, 15, a high school sophomore in Tampa, was visiting his Palestinian relatives in Jerusalem for the first time in over a decade when he was attacked and detained, family members told CNN. (Snip) The Israeli Defense Forces issued a statement Saturday seeking to distance themselves from the beating. "It seems that the Israel Police Forces were involved in the incident, and not the IDF Forces," the statement said.

Pat Roberts Stumbles in Answering

In an interview that aired on Kansas City’s KCMO 710 AM/103.7 FM last week, Sen. Pat Roberts fielded questions about his reelection with host Greg Knapp, which included queries about a debate with the three other candidates vying for the Republican nomination for his Senate seat, his long-tenure in the U.S. Senate, the debate about his residency and what sets him from challenging front-runner Milton Wolf. On the topic of his residency, which has been subject of controversy, Roberts insisted he was a resident of Kansas and downplayed the importance of actually being in Kansas in order to properly represent

Household Recycling is
State-Endorsed Slavery

Recycling is authoritarian, demeaning and an unutterable waste of time, energy and money. No surprise, then, that the European Union is planning to force its vassal states to do much, much more of it. Last week, the European Commission proposed its most draconian waste disposal legislation yet: a plan requiring 70 percent of all municipal waste and 80 percent of packaging waste to be recycled by 2030; a total ban of the landfill of recyclable waste by 2025, aiming "to virtually eliminate landfill" by 2030. As even the Guardian quietly concedes, this is an impossible ambition:

The levels of Antarctic sea-ice last week hit an all-time high – confounding climate change computer models which say it should be in decline. America’s National Snow And Ice Data Center, which is funded by Nasa, revealed that ice around the southern continent covers about 16million sq km, more than 2.1?million more than is usual for the time of year. It is by far the highest level since satellite observations on which the figures depend began in 1979. In statistical terms, the extent of the ice cover is hugely significant. The Antarctic surge is so big that overall, although Arctic

More than rumors drive Central
American youths toward U.S.

A couple of weeks ago, sisters Karen and Sindy Laucel joined the exodus of youths from Central America, hoping to reconnect with their mother, who had left this farming village a decade ago in search of work in the U.S. With so many heading north, now seemed the time to reunite. The teens filled a single backpack with three days´ worth of clothes, and their mother paid a coyote, or guide, to take her daughters and a 10-year-old girl from the village to the U.S. border nearly 2,000 miles away.

As Ebola virus spreads in West
Africa, some blame health workers

The Ebola virus would be terrifying no matter where it struck: It’s a disease with no cure that causes headaches and fever, severe diarrhea, vomiting and bleeding and has been known to kill up to 90% of its victims. But in a corner of West Africa, where the disease took hold in recent months, traditional beliefs and superstitions have complicated efforts to prevent the illness. Some communities blame the disease´s emergence on those who have gone there to help — medical staff in alien-looking full-body protection suits and masks. Others do not believe the disease exists at all, but blame

A high-definition camera trained on a burrow near the northernmost U.S. city is allowing researchers and any bird viewer with an Internet connection an unfettered view into the nesting den of an Arctic snowy owl. The camera went live this week and is trained on the nesting site where as many as six chicks are beginning to emerge from a burrow near Barrow, Alaska, on the coast of the Arctic Ocean.

People voluntarily leaving jobs at
highest rate since 2009 downturn
Journal Sentinel [Milwaukee], by John Schmid    Original Article
Posted By: earlybird- 7/5/2014 5:44:18 PM     Post Reply
In the darkest days of the last recession, few among those who had jobs were able, willing or bold enough to quit them. That is changing, however, according to a statistic called the national "quit rate," which some might call the "Take this job and shove it" index. The figure shows that the percentage of Americans who are jumping ship voluntarily is hovering at its highest levels in the four-year recovery. Many see the shift as a sign of optimism for an economy that has sputtered its way through an on-again, off-again rebound from the demoralizing downturn of 2008-´09. "The quit rate is

Despite recent sightings, shark
attacks uncommon in U.S., California

It´s probably safe to go back in the water. Despite a recent string of shark sightings off Manhattan Beach, including one that ended with a swimmer being hospitalized after he was bitten near the pier Saturday morning, reports of shark attacks are uncommon in the United States, records show. According to data tracked by the Florida Museum of Natural History, there were 39 reported shark attacks in California from 2001 to 2013, or 3.25 per year, and five of them resulted in fatalities. East Coast swimmers are much more likely to wind up the victims of a shark attack, according to the data.

Evil terror boss Abu Bakr ­al-Baghdadi came out of the shadows for the first time ­today – in a dramatic video in which he glorifies the slaughter of innocent people. The warlord whose jihadi militants are behind hundreds of brutal killings in Syria and Iraq delivered a chilling sermon to fanatics. His 15-minute rant was filmed at the grand mosque in the captured city of Mosul, northern Iraq. Surrounded by henchmen and rows of Kalashnikovs, al-Baghdadi’s eyes appeared lifeless. But his words were laced with hatred as he called on all Muslims to rise up and kill those who oppose

The New Aristocracy
Bretbart´s Big Government, by Ron Maxwell    Original Article
Posted By: mikkins2- 7/5/2014 4:56:13 PM     Post Reply
In 1776 Americans declared themselves independent of more than arbitrary rule by a distant monarch. They also severed the ties of aristocracy. This was in itself a revolutionary notion. It meant that political power, its attendant privilege and economic advantages would no longer be transferred by the blood. Earldoms, dukedoms, and kingdoms were banished from the territory and from the future of the American people. The citizen became the self-identifying unit of self-rule. The generation of English colonists who gathered together in the summer of 1776 to declare their independence from the English crown knew that they had exhausted all other remedies.

LaFerrari Is a Million-Dollar Dream

That´s no typo: The name of Ferrari´s latest thunderbolt is LaFerrari, with the article lewdly rubbing against the proper noun. It´s a great name. First, note the anapestic gallop: la-fer-RAR-eee. For a company whose symbol is a black horse this is a trick worthy of our beloved Dante. Please observe, too, how it´s a name that doesn´t give a damn about Anglophones. Is it "the LaFerrari," which parses as "the the Ferrari"? Away from the factory gates, English dog. In tune with a Latin ear, the name italicizes exclusivity and rarity. Ferrari has said it would build 499 of the

Just in time for Independence Day, an old lefty teacher has trotted out a bunch of tired canards about the American Revolutionary War. Writing for a website called The Zinn Education Project, the teacher, Bill Bigelow, also manages to criticize American firework displays on the Fourth of July because “the United States is waging war with real fireworks around the world.” Bigelow claims that “U.S. drone attacks have killed at least 2,600 people in five countries, including as many as 247 children” since 2001. He also charges that the Iraq War began in 2003 with “shock and awe” – which

Reversing course, a NASCAR team said Friday that it will not feature an advertisement for Charlie Crist, the former Republican governor of Florida who´s now seeking a return to his old job as a Democrat, on a car competing in the Coke Zero 400 this weekend. Phil Parsons, of Phil Parsons Racing, said he pulled his sponsorship agreement with Crist out of respect for his business partner Mike Curb, a Republican and former lieutenant governor of California. ´He didn´t feel comfortable and he´s been a huge supporter and partner to us from the very start," Parsons told The Sporting News.

aliban insurgents set fire on Saturday to about 200 oil tanker trucks supplying fuel for NATO forces in an attack just outside the Afghan capital Kabul, police said. Television footage showed black smoke billowing above the site of the attack, with the charred wreckage of dozens of trucks scattered around a vast parking space. The Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack, saying the trucks carried fuel intended for U.S.-led NATO forces. It was unclear how the fire was started. Some Afghan media reported that insurgents had fired rockets at the tankers late on Friday. There were no immediate reports of

DETROIT — A FAMILY of five with no water for two weeks who were embarrassed to ask friends if they could bathe at their house. A woman excited about purchasing a home who learned she would be held responsible for the previous owner’s delinquent water bill: all $8,000 of it. A 90-year-old woman with bedsores and no water available to clean them. These are the stories that keep Mia Cupp up at night.

An alleged spy has been arrested in Germany accused of passing the US information from a committee looking into NSA activities. It has heightened diplomatic tensions between the two countries following allegations in the Edward Snowden leaks that the US electronic spy agency tapped Angela Merkel’s phone along with wider surveillance of German citizens. The German government has not denied reports by Der Spiegel and the Sueddeutsche Zeitung that the suspected spy was a double agent and worked for Germany´s foreign intelligence service, the BND.

The Obamas have spent over 44 million dollars in taxpayer money on travel and vacations. Some are even calling him the “most well-trvaeled, expensive” president in our nation’s history. As Americans head off for the long holiday weekend, let’s take a look back at some of the president’s holiday spending. Our president vacations a lot — we’re talking $44,351,777.12 worth of “a lot,” with most expenses charged to the American taxpayer. As of March 2014, Obama has spent more time traveling internationally than any other president, taking 31 trips since assuming office in 2009. The 119 days spent overseas have

In recent weeks, the Obama administration has been making tough statements about the more than 50,000 illegal alien children, unaccompanied by adults, who have rushed the border and turned themselves in, hoping to gain entry to the U.S. The White House has stated flatly that they “can’t stay” and will be returned home. “Do not send your children to the borders. If they do make it, they’ll get sent back. More importantly, they may not make it,” Obama said to ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos. Some of them — eventually — may be deported. But it appears that the vast majority

For those of you who have been following the University of Texas admissions scandal here and elsewhere, and the equally scandalous impeachment of the UT regent who asked uncomfortable questions about favors given to friends and family of Texas politicians, the Dallas Morning News reports that UT president Bill Powers is being shown the door. It’s worth noting that among the prime movers in this sorry episode is Jim Pitts, chairman of the Texas House appropriations committee and a Republican — a reminder that Republicans are not always on our side, and that politicians’ first loyalty very often is to their

In more than a decade on the battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan, American forces have never been routed. American combat units have suffered extensive casualties, but they have never disintegrated into a helpless mass of individual soldiers, capable of nothing more than a desperate flight for safety. This achievement should not be taken for granted. Today, the armed forces grapple with a trillion dollars of defense cuts that are impairing readiness. And today is an appropriate time to reflect on the costs of unpreparedness: It was on this day in 1950 that American forces suffered the first of a series
