Violent crime in L.A. is up at
midyear point for first time since 2003
Los Angeles Times, by Kate Mather and Ben Poston    Original Article
Posted By: PageTurner- 7/9/2014 5:31:47 PM     Post Reply
For first time in more than a decade, violent crime in Los Angeles rose during the first six months of the year, according to Los Angeles Police Department statistics. LAPD Chief Charlie Beck said the department was "very concerned" about the increase but also noted that overall crime, which includes property offenses such as burglaries, remains down. Violent crime was up 2.9%, with 8,610 crimes reported in the first six months of the year, compared with 8,371 reported during the first six months of 2013. The increase was driven by a jump in aggravated assaults, which were up 12% compared with

U.S Representative Henry Roberto Cuellar a Democrat from Texas told Brian Kilmeade on Fox and Friends this morning that he´s already gotten a phone call from the White House, he wouldn´t say from whom, warning him to stop criticizing Obama on his handling of the border. Kilmeade mentioned to Cuellar that the WH doesn´t take kindly to Democrats criticizing the president and cited Corey Booker catching flak and then backtracking. Kilmeade pressed Cuellar about who called but the Congressman declined to say.

The Obama administration posted a notice Wednesday of its intention to rebuild the White House bowling alley with “green” materials, but cancelled the notice later in the day. The General Services Administration said in a notice posted online at 11:04 a.m. that it was looking to rebuild the two lanes located in the Eisenhower office building adjacent to the West Wing. But the notice was abruptly canceled at 4:05 p.m., after the proposed renovations were the subject of several news articles. In its original post, GSA said the objective “is to replace the current, damaged and out dated lanes, approaches,

City wants church to move little library
Lincoln Journal-Star, by Chris Heady    Original Article

A Little Free Library could end up costing Southminster United Methodist Church up to $500 in city fines. Neighbors installed the "take one, leave one" little library on the southwest corner of 16th and Otoe streets two weeks ago, and the city wants it moved. While the library itself doesn´t violate any code, Public Works Director Miki Esposito said its location — between the sidewalk and Otoe Street — violates a rule requiring property owners to keep the public right of way cleared.

WASHINGTON — Gov. Rick Perry’s border summit with the president will take place in the most exclusive chopper in all the land, as Marine One whisks them across Dallas. Perry, one of Barack Obama’s loudest antagonists, requested a meeting on Monday during the president’s two-day Texas visit and pointedly pre-rejected any “quick handshake on the tarmac.” White House spokesman Josh Earnest revealed moments ago that this would indeed be no pedestrian encounter. “The president and Gov. Perry will board Marine One and it will fly to Dallas Love Field” from D/FW International Airport, where Air Force One will land shortly, Earnest

Texas Gov. Rick Perry is slated to greet President Barack Obama on the tarmac in Dallas on Wednesday ahead of a likely private meeting with him in the Lone Star State, a spokesman for the governor said. Perry, a Republican and potential 2016 presidential contender, has been pushing Obama to come to the Texas border with Mexico to see the influx of illegal immigrants, many of them minors, gathering there in what’s been described as a mounting humanitarian crisis. The governor had previously declined to greet the president at the Austin airport and, in a letter to the White House, asked

5 Reasons Why New York Times Editorial
Today Is An Embarrassment To Journalism

1. The New York Times writes that “after days of near silence,” Prime Minister Netanyahu condemned the murder of a Palestinian teenager on Sunday. But Netanyahu called the murder “reprehensible” on Wednesday, the day it occurred, and the next day, in his first public appearance since the murder, again forcefully condemned the killing on prime-time national television. Early July 4th weekend for the entire New York Times editorial board? 2. The New York Times omits that Prime Minister Netanyahu called the father of the murdered boy yesterday to personally express his outrage and condemnation. Maybe the New York Times didn’t get that press

Israel’s ongoing occupation of the West Bank is wrong and leads to regional instability and dehumanization of Palestinians, a top American government official said Tuesday in Tel Aviv, hinting that the current Israeli government is not committed to peace n an unusually harsh major foreign policy address, Philip Gordon, a special assistant to US President Barack Obama and the White House coordinator for the Middle East, appealed to Israeli and Palestinian leaders to make the compromises needed to reach a permanent peace agreement. Jerusalem “should not take for granted the opportunity to negotiate” such a treaty with Palestinian Authority President

The lawyer for ex-IRS official Lois Lerner on Wednesday walked back comments about whether she followed record-keeping laws and printed out official emails, saying she did make “some” such back-ups. William Taylor III of Zuckerman Spaeder late last month told POLITICO that Lerner, the former head of the tax exempt division that singled out tea party groups, did not print off and file her official emails because she didn’t know she had to. He later followed up with an email, writing: “Did she print out official records and file them[?] Answer. No, and she did not think it was required.”

Obama to set off bomb

Now that Republicans have made it clear that they will not participate on any level in basic problem solving when it comes to our immigration crisis, it is now on Obama to determine just how far he can go unilaterally, particularly when it comes to easing the pace of deportations. This is going to be one of the most consequential decisions of his presidency in substantive, moral, and legal terms, and politically, it could set off a bomb this fall, in the middle of the midterm elections. I’m told there are currently internal discussions underway among Democrats over whether ambitious

Email incriminates Lerner in scheme to evade Congressional oversight. Darrell Issa has tweeted out an email exchange involving Lois Lerner in April 2013, in which she attempts to scope out what email records get retained, and cautions that because Congress may seek emails, “we need to be cautious about what we say in emails”. (snip) This evidences a consciousness of guilt, even if somewhat after the fact of the harassment of conservative groups. She’s also not the brightest bulb in the theater — if you are worried about saying incriminating things in emails because Congress may discover the emails, don’t

DENVER — President Obama is traveling to Texas on Wednesday and will come face-to-face with liberal and conservative critics of his government’s handling of a humanitarian crisis on the southern border, including Gov. Rick Perry. Just a day after Mr. Obama asked Congress for nearly $4 billion to address the influx of unaccompanied children, aides continue to say the president will not travel the extra distance to the Texas-Mexico border to see the detention centers where thousands of Central American immigrants have been held. He will, however, attend a previously planned immigration meeting in Dallas, as well as Democratic fund-raisers

Overwhelmingly Sarah Palin, says America. 52% of surveyed American adults want Sarah Palin to “be quiet,” according to the poll taken between June 30 and July 7 (Snip) 45% of respondents added that they wanted Jesse Jackson to be quiet, too; followed by Dick Cheney (42%), Newt Gingrich (39%), Al Gore (37%), and

Obama’s immigration implosion

President Barack Obama is self-righteously grumbling that, having been stymied by Republicans in Congress, he’ll enact immigration reform on his own by voice vote in the West Wing. That is, via executive decree — his go-to method of governing given his crushing lack of success on Capitol Hill. But Obama’s promised executive actions will likely entomb immigration reform, which is already dead for the year, in the great sarcophagus of permanently missed opportunities that houses much of whatever it is Obama wanted to do or should have achieved. The demise of his immigration agenda was predictable because it was killed

Indianapolis - Indiana Gov. Mike Pence´s office is telling state agencies act as if no gay marriages had been performed during three days following a federal court order.The memo from the governor´s chief counsel tells executive branch agencies to execute their functions as though the June 25 court order had not been issued. A federal judge in Indianapolis struck down the state´s gay marriage ban as unconstitutional that day, leading to hundreds of same-sex marriages around the state. But an appeals court stayed that ruling three days later after an appeal from the state attorney general´s office.

Utah is going straight to the U.S. Supreme Court to appeal a federal appeals court´s ruling that gay couples have a constitutional right to marry, the state attorney general´s office announced Wednesday. The state opted to challenge the decision with the nation´s highest court rather than request a review from the entire 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver. That option is now off the table, no matter what the high court decides. Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes´ office said in a statement the appeal will be filed in the coming weeks.

Brazilians cried, cursed their president and covered their faces in shame after their beloved football team´s humiliating 7-1 thrashing by Germany in the World Cup semi-finals Tuesday. President Dilma Rousseff twitted how sad she was with defeat but called on Brazilians “we won´t let ourselves stay down”. After the fifth goal, well before half-time, hundreds of people left their expensive seats at the stadium in the southeastern city of Belo Horizonte. A section of the crowd chanted obscenities against the players and President Dilma Rousseff, who during the cup had mostly enjoyed a reprieve from protests over the record 11 billion

Happening Now’s Martha MacCallum and National Review editor Jonah Goldberg considered a photo tweeted yesterday of President Barack Obama and Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper playing a game of billiards, and agreed it presented terrible optics given Obama’s decision not to go to the border during his upcoming trip to Texas. “This is a sign that the bubble around the White House is much thicker than people think,” Goldberg said. “Obama’s always liked to cultivate the idea of the ‘No Drama Obama.’ Maybe they think this shows him as an every-man kind of thing.”

President Obama has an opportunity to do two big things: help resolve the ongoing crisis at the border, and put us on a path to immigration reform. Unfortunately, he doesn’t seem interested in either. Today the president is in Texas, where he turned down an invitation from Gov. Rick Perry to tour the border for himself so he might see the crisis firsthand. Not interested, the president told the governor. Instead, he’ll spend his time .?.?. fund-raising. Obama’s visit to Texas comes just after he asked Congress for $3.8 billion in emergency spending. The money is meant to address the chaos at the

This might have been the best meal served on a plane. A Frontier Airlines pilot treated passengers to a pizza party on Monday after their flight was experiencing a dreadful delay and had run out of food. Stranded on the runway for nearly two hours, passengers were apparently growing hungry, and one of the pilots knew he had to act fast. Traveling from Washington, D.C., to Denver, the plane had been diverted to Cheyenne, Wyoming, due to a series of storms in the area, CNN reports. After realizing that the plane’s food supplies had been completely depleted, the pilot made the decision to

A 26-year-old Northern California prostitute has been arrested in the mysterious death of a Google executive, according to police. Forrest Hayes was a 51-year-old married father of five. He loved his family and his boat. He was beloved by his colleagues at Google X, the tech giant’s innovation lab. But Hayes was apparently living a secret life that no one seemed to have suspected. Shortly before Thanksgiving last year, police found him on his yacht in the Santa Cruz Small Craft Harbor, dead from a heroin overdose. On the night of his death, according to police, Hayes had met up with Alix Tichleman, a young call girl he’d met on
