Murdoch´s Fox hunting Time Warner
Reuters, by Soyoung Kim & Soham Chatterjee    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 7/16/2014 9:21:21 AM     Post Reply
Rupert Murdoch´s 21st Century Fox (FOXA.O) said it made a bid to buy media conglomerate Time Warner Inc (TWX.N) but was rebuffed. The bid was worth roughly $80 billion, or $85 per share in cash and stock, a source familiar with the situation told Reuters. Time Warner´s stock jumped 22.5 percent to $87 premarket as the New York Times reported that Murdoch was determined to buy Time Warner and was unlikely to walk away despite the rejection. (nyti.ms/1na1K7y) Twenty-First Century Fox confirmed that it had made the formal proposal to Time Warner last month. "The Time Warner Board of Directors

Do you wish you were able to afford to go to a resort with pool, sauna, tennis courts, exercise room, sauna, steam room, racketball courts, and all the trimmings? Too bad you aren’t an illegal alien teenager, maybe a member of MS 13. Because your tax dollars (pay up, sucker!) are going to pay for a $50 million magnet resort for them. (snip)The resort will be ready for guests on October 1, just in time for the peak season as the weather turns cool up north, and the warm climate of South Texas sounds really good. Too bad for you,

Issa slams White House over
aide´s defiance of subpoena
Fox News, by Staff    Original Article

The chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee attacked the Obama administration late Tuesday after the White House said a top political aide to the president would defy a subpoena and not appear at a hearing investigating the White House Office of Political Strategy and Outreach. The White House argued that David Simas, the office´s director, is immune from the "extraordinary demand" of being forced to testify before the committee. White House counsel Neil Eggleston said in a letter Tuesday night to Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., that the Simas subpoena "threatens longstanding interests of the executive branch in preserving the

Protestors both pro and anti-immigration
descend on small Arizona town as they battle
over transfer of 40 undocumented children

Dozens of protesters on both sides of the immigration debate showed up in a small town near Tucson on Tuesday after the sheriff said the federal government plans to transport about 40 immigrant children to an academy for troubled youths - but the kids never arrived. The rallies demonstrated the deep divide of the immigration debate. One group waved American flags, held signs that read ´Return to Sender´ and ´Go home non-Yankees´ and said they would block a bus that was supposed to arrive with immigrant children aboard. It turned heated at times, with shouting matches and a group of

Russia and Cuba have agreed to reopen the signals intelligence (SIGINT) base in Lourdes, Cuba, which was primarily used to spy on the U.S., Russian business daily Kommersant reports. The base was set up in 1964 after the Cuban missile crisis and is 155 miles from the U.S. coast. Havana shut it down in 2001 because of financial issues and American pressure. "Lourdes gave the Soviet Union eyes in the whole of the western hemisphere," a former head of Russia´s foreign intelligence service, Vyacheslav Trubnikov, told Kommersant.

What do a lesbian grandmother in Ontario, an extreme conservative professor of economics in Virginia, a right-wing politician in England who admires Putin and an Italian-American municipal politician from Brooklyn have in common? This isn’t the first line of a weak Borscht-Belt-style gag. It is a string of recent examples from both sides of the Atlantic of politicians who have understood that the post-2008 political environment is dramatically different from the era that preceded it. The leaders—on both left and right—who figure out how to take advantage of these altered circumstances will be the ones who win. Barack Obama was

  


  

TV Reporter Suspended After Rant

News 12 reporter Sean Bergin made a controversial statement about “young black men” on TV Monday and now he has reportedly been suspended. The regional News 12 Networks, which serve New York and New Jersey, ran a story (above) about Jersey City Police Officer Melvin Santiago, who was fatally wounded in a shootout at a Jersey City Walgreens on Sunday. The network interviewed angry residents in the segment, many of whom weren´t very sensitive to the police officer´s death. “We were besieged, flooded with calls from police officers furious that we would give media coverage to the life of a

Politicians in Germany have devised an ingenious solution to combat the threat of eavesdropping by American spies: playing classical music during their meetings. MPs who sit on the spying committee had become so concerned that US agents might listen in to their discussions that they had ordered classical music to be played, to drown out the discussions. On arrival at the meeting, The Suddetusche Zeitung reported that for "security reasons" MPs had to put their mobile phones and computers into a large metal box to ensure that they were not subjected to outside surveillance. "Then the committee chairman, Patrick Sensburg switched the music

Gaza conflict: 100,000 Gazans warned to

Israel escalated its offensive against Hamas on Wednesday, carrying out dozens of air strikes and warning about 100,000 Palestinians to leave their homes in the Gaza Strip by a deadline of 8am. The Israel Defence Forces (IDF) held fire for six hours on Tuesday in accordance with an Egyptian ceasefire plan, but an official statement said that Hamas continued to launch rockets, killing one civilian. “When it was clear that Hamas had no intention of ceasing its fire after it had launched over 75 rockets, the political echelon approved the IDF to resume targeting terror sites across the Gaza Strip,”

Britain is to build the first spaceport outside of America by the year 2018, the government has announced. The facility will eventually enable tourists to take commercial flights to Australia in just two hours, but before that it will be used to launch British satellites.

Why Israel Is Winning This War

The reluctance of Hamas’s “military wing”—a misnomer for the more extreme elements of its extremist leadership—to accept the cease-fire designed by Egypt is, well, logical. Let’s admit it. They do not wish to accept defeat, and the Egyptian terms are a defeat for Hamas. By attacking Israel, what has Hamas wrought? Considerable damage was done to Gaza by Israeli air power, and Gazans will be picking up the pieces for months if not longer. But Hamas proved unable to kill one single Israeli with its hundreds of rockets, and all its special tricks—tunnels, longer-range rockets, a drone—also failed. Nor could

House Republicans are moving quickly to address the growing humanitarian crisis on the southern border, possibly holding votes as soon as next week. As Congress moves closer to the monthlong August recess, the speedy action sends a clear message to Senate Democrats: Take it or leave it. Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), incoming Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) and a group of top lawmakers working on the border crisis are set to file a bill that very closely mirrors the legislation crafted by Texas lawmakers Sen. John Cornyn, a Republican, and Democratic Rep. Henry Cuellar.

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has identified a massive new threat to domestic airline security. No, it’s not ISIS, Al Qaeda, or the Taliban. It’s the dead battery on your smartphone. Last week, TSA announced what it called “enhanced security measures” in which passengers will be required to power up their cell phones before boarding their flight. According to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, TSA has “assesse[d] the global threat environment and reevaluate[d] the measures we take to promote aviation security.” Your cell phone is evidently part of a “global threat environment,” and so it must be turned on in order

Report: Deficit To Soon Skyrocket
To Historic World War II Heights
Daily Caller, by Jonah Bennett    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 7/16/2014 5:26:29 AM     Post Reply
The Congressional Budget Office’s (CBO) latest report says that although the federal deficit this year is the lowest of the Obama era, in the near future, it is expected to skyrocket to World War II heights. The years between 2009 and 2012 saw the largest recorded federal government deficits since 1946, based on percentage of the economy. And although the White House also reported that the deficit this year is the lowest of the Obama administration, there is little reason for celebration. Currently, the amount of federal debt is exactly 74 percent of the economy, and if measures aren’t taken to reign

Call in Atticus Finch. Only the scrupulously fair lawyer at the center of Harper Lee´s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, "To Kill a Mockingbird," could get at the truth in the latest conflict over the reclusive author´s privacy. The clash erupted again with Tuesday´s release of "The Mockingbird Next Door: Life with Harper Lee," by former Chicago Tribune reporter Marja Mills. To gather material for her intimate portrait, Mills rented a house in Monroeville, Ala., next door to the 88-year-old author and her older sister, Alice, and gradually got to know them. In the book, Mills claims she had "the trust, support, and encouragement"

American voters are angry with both the White House and Republican lawmakers for their bungled handling of the growing crisis on the border between the U.S. and Mexico, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll. The survey, which was conducted from July 9-13 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points, found that 58 percent of survey respondents disapprove of President Obama´s handling of the sudden surge of unaccompanied minors who have flooded the border. And of the self-identified Latino adults surveyed in the report, 54 percent say they are definitely unhappy with the White House´s

A Flashing Green Light

The tens of thousands of Central Americans who have crossed America’s porous borders over the last year came on the assumption that once on U.S. soil they would never have to return to their countries. The instigators of this influx correctly viewed Obama’s de facto support for amnesty as a flashing green light. After all, how seriously were they going to take U.S. immigration law under a president who treated border security as a punch line to a joke? In 2011, Obama loudly mocked conservatives, the very ones who foresaw today’s mushrooming crisis, as malcontents crying wolf about a vulnerable border. “You

It had to come sometime, and it came in one very bad week for the Democrats: that the many big problems with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama finally grew too great for the press to ignore. Obama in his own different way is heading towards Nixon-like levels of weirdness, as, beaten down by the failures regarding his ventures, he appears to have quit his own job. A.B. Stoddard of the Hill says in effect he has stopped being president and chooses to live in a world of his own, shutting out the problems that have become overwhelming, giving dinners where he talks

Gun nuts aren´t always creatures of the political right.

Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey will make his most significant and elaborate return to the presidential arena this week amid indications that, despite his tribulations, his political standing has stabilized and his advisers see a possible path to the Republican nomination in 2016. Mr. Christie’s three-city swing through Iowa, the first state to have a say on the presidential race, will represent a highly public resumption of his White House ambitions after six months of scandal. It was deliberately constructed to showcase what his advisers believe distinguishes him from the emerging Republican field: his personality and ability to interact spontaneously

CNN chose to describe the recently detained Jose Antonio Vargas, longtime journalist for U.S. publications and legal citizen of the Philippines, as a “symbol of the immigration debate.” The news network aired his documentary, Undocumented, several times. At the heart of Vargas’s viewpoint — and CNN’s decision to refer to him as a symbol, as opposed to, say, a scofflaw — is the notion that it is unfair to deny citizenship to him, considering his circumstances. Vargas came to the United States from the Philippines when he was 12 and didn’t learn he was in the country illegally until he was

CIUDAD HIDALGO, Mexico – Mexico is promising to stem the flow of Central American migrants to the United States by tightening control at its notoriously porous Guatemalan border. But messages from the country´s top two leaders in little more than a week have provided few details on how. And the scene on the ground is business as usual. Dozens of Central Americans who paid $1.50 a head could be seen this week crossing the broad Suchiate River on improvised rafts of inner tubes and wooden boards, in full view of Mexican police on the shore and immigration agents posted on

Mr. McCain, the highest-profile Republican of the U.S. Senate’s “Gang of Eight” that came up with amnesty as the solution to the immigration crisis — and it truly is a crisis — is finally taking a hard line against President Obama for his encouraging the tidal wave of illegal aliens swamping the southwestern border. “There has to be a halt to this,” Mr. McCain thundered Sunday on CNN. “That’s what we want, and the best way to do that is for planeloads of these young people to be returning to their country of origin
