John McCain on ‘Bollocks-Upped’
Arizona Execution: ‘That’s Torture’
Mediaite, by Josh Feldman    Original Article

Senator John McCain weighed in today on the disturbing two-hour execution of an Arizona inmate yesterday, in which Joseph Wood was reportedly gasping for an hour. Governor Jan Brewer ordered a full review, but McCain said today that what happened to Wood was unquestionably torture. McCain spoke to Politico about the execution and said that while he supports the death penalty, the way last night’s unfolded “is not an acceptable way of carrying it out.” He called it a “terrible” incident and said, “The lethal injection needs to be an indeed lethal injection and not the bollocks-upped situation that just

At the very end of an interview with CNBC’s Steve Liesman Thursday, President Barack Obama addressed the accusations, from Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and others, that the Federal Aviation Administration’s decision to ban U.S. flights from landing in Israel for 48 hours was politically motivated. Obama called the move “purely technical,” saying the United States does not make “decisions when it comes to airline safety” based on “politics” or “even our strong alliance with Israel.” He elaborated: “The initial ban that was imposed by the FAA was based on Israel needing to show us that in fact it was safe for commercial airlines

President Obama put his rosy glasses on for an interview with CNBC on Thursday, claiming “It’s pretty hard to find an economic measure where we’re not significantly better off.” Obama spoke with CNBC’s Steve Liesman about the economic policies pushed by the White House and what the federal government expects going forward. “What can you tell average Americans about the outlook of the economy?” Liesman asked, noting that even Obama’s own former economic advisor Larry Summers is forecasting lower growth over the next few years. Obama dismissed that notion. “If you think about where we were, Steve, when I came

(WASHINGTON) -- The House cleared a procedural hurdle on Thursday to set up a showdown between House Speaker John Boehner and President Obama next week. The House Rules Committee voted 7-4 to approve a markup of H. Res. 676, which provides authority to initiate litigation for actions by the president or other executive branch officials inconsistent with their duties under the Constitution of the United States. Next week, the measure will require a rule before floor consideration by the full House. A vote on the bill is likely to be among the final acts the House takes before lawmakers enjoy a five-week

Dear President Barack Obama, You are the leader of the free world. Here in the Middle East, where we live, freedom is running out. Countries and entire regions are falling into the hands of brain-washed, hate-filled extremists, who slaughter anyone who doesn’t think the same way they think or agree with all their religious beliefs. Look at what’s happening in Syria, Iraq, in the Sinai Desert and many other places. You know full well, Mr. President, that in its war against Hamas, Israel embodies the forces of light, and Hamas the forces of darkness. A veritable Gunfight at the OK

Last year, James Hammond, the superintendent of the Montclair-Ontario Unified School District in the Inland Empire, was paid $492,077. Jonathan Eagan, the principal of a junior high school in the Bay Area city of Martinez made $279,669. And 31 custodians at California public schools were paid more than $100,000 in 2013. That is a sample of statistics found in a newly released online database that allows users to search and download detailed employee compensation figures for superintendents, teachers, principals and other staff members at school districts across the state.

Jeff Sessions: Boehner Group´s Border

Senate Budget Committee ranking member Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), an immigration hawk, shredded House Speaker John Boehner´s working group border crisis recommendations in a Wednesday afternoon statement, calling Boehner’s plan an “institutional surrender to the planned illegality” of President Barack Obama. “The border crisis is the direct and predictable result of the President’s sustained policies undermining America’s immigration laws,” Sessions said in his statement on the Boehner working group proposal. Sessions said: The President’s continued determination to carry out this nullification remains the singular obstacle in the way of restoring lawfulness. It is therefore odd that the House working group did not mention

The surprising reason a House Republican

It´s not every day that a House Republican charges that the powerful U.S. Chamber of Commerce is "in the pocket of Communist China." But Michigan freshman Rep. Kerry Bentivolio did just that on Thursday when he announced he would return the Spirit of Enterprise Award he received from the group earlier this Congress. “It is with great pride that I reject their award, and call on them to stand on the side of America, instead of on the side of China and corporate interests seeking to exploit people for profit,” Bentivolio said in a press release.His chief of staff, Rob Wasinger, gave

A woman decapitated her Brooklyn roommate, a mother of four, while the latter begged for her life, according to a criminal court complaint released Thursday. Leah Cuevas, 42, allegedly slaughtered roommate Chinelle LaToya Thompson Browne in the Brownsville home they shared during a July 5 confrontation over unpaid rent and utility costs. According to Suffolk County Assistant District Attorney Robert Biancavilla, witnesses told investigators they heard Browne’s chilling last words during the heated fight, screaming, “No Lee, no Lee” and, “What you doing? Oh no, oh no … I’m sorry, I’m sorry,” Newsday reported. Browne’s head was hacked off with “a

Tearing into companies he dubbed “corporate deserters,” President Obama on Thursday launched an election-year push to make it harder for U.S. companies to avoid paying taxes. Under a bright sun at a trade and technical college in Los Angeles, Obama issued a damning assessment of a “small but growing” group of companies taking advantage of a “loophole” in corporate tax law by reorganizing overseas, often in low-tax countries.

ABC, CBS, and NBC´s morning and evening newscasts have yet to cover the dire situation of Christians in Iraq, particularly after ISIS´s takeover of the key city of Mosul. The Islamic extremist group drove most of the Christians out of the city, and issued an ultimatum to those who remained: covert to Islam, pay a hefty tax, or face death. Refreshingly, the New York Times spotlighted the crisis in a Thursday op-ed, and noted that the Christian community in Mosul has lived there for nearly 2,000 years.

There are no signature spirals or triple jumps in Michelle Kwan’s latest TV ad, just a straightforward pitch for her husband, Clay Pell, and his bid to be Rhode Island’s next governor. Kwan, a former world champion figure skater and two-time Olympic medalist, touts the Democrat’s plans for pay equality and strengthening laws against sexual harassment and domestic violence. It’s a clear bid to reach out to female voters, who will be key in the Democratic primary on Sept. 9. “Clay believes that I believe,” Kwan says in the spot. “We need equality for all women.” Kwan is no stranger to TV commercials

ST. LOUIS – The nation´s third botched execution in six months offers more evidence for the courts that lethal injection carries too many risks and amounts to cruel and unusual punishment, death-row lawyers and other opponents said Thursday. Death-penalty opponents say the execution of an Arizona inmate who took two hours to die shows that state experiments with different drugs and dosages are a callous trial-and-error process. The result: Every few months, an inmate gasps, chokes and takes an unusually long time to die. "These executions are experiments on human subjects," said Cheryl Pilate, an attorney for several Missouri death-row

A convoy of hearses today carried a second batch of MH17 victims to a military barracks in Holland following the coffins´ arrival in the Netherlands. The hearses, carrying the bodies and remains of 74 victims of the doomed Malaysia Airlines flight, travelled slowly from Eindhoven air base to Hilversum.

Flashback: Obama Urged Action

The plight of Iraq’s Christians, targeted by Muslim militants, prompted a U.S. senator to write to the Secretary of State, voicing alarm about “their potential extinction from their ancient homeland” and saying the situation demands “an urgent response from our government.” The letter was addressed to Condoleezza Rice, the date was Sept. 11, 2007, and the writer was Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.), then running for the Democratic presidential nomination. While Iraq’s Christian minority had come under attack and faced grave hardships since the fall of Saddam Hussein in 2003 – a spate of church bombings in Aug. 2004 killed at

The President wakes late and eats shortly after noon. He begins with the simplest of breakfasts. There is always cottage cheese. His cooked portion is always substantial; omelette or occasionally porridge. He likes quails’ eggs. He drinks fruit juice. The food is forever fresh: baskets of his favourites dispatched regularly from the farmland estates of the Patriarch Kirill, Russia’s religious leader. He is then served coffee. His courtiers have been summoned but these first two hours are taken up with swimming. The President enjoys this solitary time in the water. He wears goggles and throws himself into a vigorous front crawl.

Obama administration officials said Thursday that Russia is firing artillery from its own territory into Ukraine to hit Ukrainian military sites, pointing to escalating Russian involvement in the deadly conflict. "This clearly is a military escalation," Pentagon spokesman Col. Steve Warren said, adding there is no question that Russian military -- as opposed to Russia-backed separatists -- are firing the shots. State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf first made the accusation during a press briefing earlier Thursday. She also claimed Moscow is boosting its military shipments to pro-Russian separatists.

Readers who followed my many reports exposing the truth about the September 11, 2012 attack of the CIA compound in Benghazi that killed four Americans have witnessed the painfully slow process of that truth gradually evolving into the mainstream, validating my information and source. From beginning to end, the West, and particularly Americans, were lied to about nearly every aspect of our involvement in Libya, Syria and the entirety of the “Arab Spring” in the Middle East. These lies were deliberately advanced by a captured corporate media adherent to the same ideological bias as the Renegade-in-Chief and his staff of co-conspirators,
