NYPD detains men who had
pressure cookers to ‘prepare rice’
New York Post, by Gary Buiso, Jamie Schram    Original Article

Police detained two men at a Midtown hotel late Friday after a doorman reported they possessed a pair of pressure cookers like those used to make the Boston Marathon bombs. But the men say it was a misunderstanding: They plan to use the pressure cookers to prepare rice, chicken and meat. Mohammad Alotaibi, 21, and Ayoub Alawadhi, 20, pulled up to the InterContinental Hotel on East 48th Street late Friday with the pressure cookers in their car’s trunk, said law enforcement sources. A doorman called Crimestoppers, and NYPD counterterrorism and intelligence officers arrived to question the men. Police did not

U.S. needs to act now on borders,
terror threats

With terrorist threats at their highest levels since 9/11, Americans must demand that the federal government secure the nation’s borders immediately. No one should be permitted to enter the U.S. without getting screened and having their backgrounds checked. Nobody. Putting aside the flood of illegal Central American kids, we cannot afford to leave our borders so wide open that jihadist terrorists can stroll right in and launch another attack like the marathon bombings, 9/11 or worse. A nation cannot expect to remain sovereign without secure borders. In the roiling Middle East, dangerous Muslim terrorists are multiplying in force. ISIS is

´Freewheeling Militia Violence´ Forced
US to Evacuate Embassy in Libya, Kerry Says
ABC News, by Ali Weinberg    Original Article

(Video) The U.S. State Department was forced to suspend operations at its embassy in Libya because of "freewheeling militia violence" there, Secretary of State John Kerry said today. Kerry, who spoke to reporters before a meeting with the Turkish and Qatari foreign ministers about Gaza, made the comments after the State Department announced it evacuated its staff in Tripoli. He blamed the "freewheeling militia violence," caused by jihadist groups which have only grown in power since the ouster of former president Muammar Gaddafi, for creating an environment in which the diplomatic activities at the Libya embassy had to be suspended.

Sacramento - The drought is bringing out all kinds of animals, but one has a bite you don’t want to mess with. Len Ramirez says his rattlesnake removal business says this is one of the busiest year’s he’s seen in nearly 30 years. And it’s only halfway done. “We’ve made four calls today, and tonight I don’t know how many I’m going to make this evening, but it’s going to be a long evening,” he said. A room where he keeps rattlesnakes he catches before releasing them into the wild is evidence of how busy he’s been. “We’ve removed 72 rattlesnakes this week,” he said. Drought conditions have kept the calls coming in from people spooked by a

In an apology to BuzzFeed readers, Smith said the plagiarism is “a breach of our fundamental responsibility" and that editors were in the process of attaching an editor´s note to every instance of plagiarism.

A brief history of illicit drug

Earlier this week, Snoop Dogg (aka Snoop Lion aka Snoopy Snoopy Poop Dog) said that he smoked weed last year in a White House bathroom. As it turns out, this grants him membership to an elite club of White House visitors who have, by their accounts, managed to use illicit drugs there. Below is a short history of those who say they joined a different sort of mile-high club during their White House visits. And since none of these claims are verified anyway (Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan has not responded to a request for comment about Snoop´s story), we've thrown in some of the most persistent rumors of drug use by the

Our continuing message to any community is the same. Stand up, don’t be fearful: if you oppose them – they will not come.

Norway closed part of the airspace over its second city Bergen and tightened border checks on Saturday, police said, two days after the country upped security following a terror alert. Norway has been on high alert since Thursday, when its intelligence service (PST) said it had "recently received information that a group of extremists from Syria may be planning a terrorist attack" in the country. "Police have requested Avinor (Norway´s state-owned airport operator) to ban flights over central Bergen," said Gustav Landro, chief of staff at the Hordaland county police department.

The vicar of the only Anglican church in Iraq has warned the end for Christians in the country appears “very near” as he appealed for help after a deadline set by Islamic militants to convert or be killed expired. Canon Andrew White, dubbed "the bishop of Baghdad" for his work at St George´s church in the capital, spoke after the ultimatum handed to Christians in the northern city of Mosul by the Islamic State of Iraq Levant (Isis) to convert, pay a tax or be put to death passed last week. For those Christians who did not comply with the decree by 19 July, Isis warned that "there is nothing to give them but the sword.” Many have since fled their homes

Hillary Clinton though it was funny when Kaddafi died. Who’s laughing now? In this 11-second video, then Secretary of State Clinton laughed about the fall of Libya’s Muammar Gaddafi, saying, “We came. We saw. He died.”This video displayed the killing of Kaddafi that Hillary found so funny:Today, over three years later, Libya, the nation, has degenerated into complete chaos. The U.S. mainstream media largely lost interest Libya after Gaddafi’s death. It was “Mission Accomplished” from the new bureaus’ perspective. On to the next big story.

The attorney general of Colorado says he will have his staff review the Live Action investigative video of a Denver Planned Parenthood employee coaching a young woman, believed to be only 15-years old, in the practice of high-risk sexual activities, including bondage/discipline and sado-masochistic sex (BDSM). The second installment of pro-life organization Live Action’s series titled “SexEd: Planned Parenthood’s Dangerous Sex Advice for Kids,” features Denver Planned Parenthood counselors suggesting to the undercover investigator a spectrum of sadistic sexual behaviors, such as “whipping,” “tying up,” and “asphyxiation.” As observed by Wayne Laugesen at the National Catholic Register, despite Colorado Attorney

The Democrats´ impeachment

In an almost farcical twist on the recent political debate, the Obama White House has joined the Democratic fundraising apparatus in what appears to be a campaign to encourage Republicans to impeach the president. In the past 48 hours, first lady Michelle Obama, White House senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer, White House spokesman Josh Earnest, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, and others have raised the specter of an Obama impeachment. The first lady was first to broach the subject, in a Thursday evening fundraising speech in Chicago. "If we lose these midterm elections,

Will a Wyoming strategy to

Next year, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will decide whether or not to list the sage grouse as an endangered species. It has the potential to be a watershed moment, and not just for the bird, whose numbers have been in steady decline for a half-century. Wyoming’s economy is built on the sagebrush steppes sage grouse call home. Some 15.3 million acres, or 25 percent of the state, is considered important habitat for the bird. Ranchers rely on these windswept lands to graze their cattle. Oil, gas and mining companies drill holes in the dusty surface to access the rich treasure

Hamilton — The attorney for Steven Brigham, a doctor suspended for starting late-term abortions in his South Jersey office and sending five women to Maryland to finish the procedure, asked a judge yesterday to consider his client a target of "selective enforcement" who thought he was following accepted medical practices. (Snip) The board in 2010 found Brigham’s "continued practice presents a clear and imminent danger" to the public after an 18-year-old woman who was 21½ weeks pregnant suffered a lacerated uterus and bowel and needed emergency surgery. She had been injected with an abortion-triggering medication, digoxin, in

On Thursday, footage surfaced of Jonathan Gruber, an MIT economist and chief architect of Obamacare, discussing the issue at the heart of the latest ACA court cases: whether subsidies are only available for state-run insurance exchanges or can also be paid as part of a federal exchange. During a January 2012 lecture Gruber said, "I think what’s important to remember politically about this, is if you’re a state and you don’t set up an exchange, that means your citizens don’t get their tax credits." Gruber spoke with Jonathan Cohn, a senior editor at The New Republic, about the video on Friday and

Reports have broke through that seven-time Formula 1 World Champion Michael Schumacher may return home by the end of the summer. The 45-year-old German is currently situated in a rehabilitation ward in Lausanne, Switzerland and has reportedly been communicating with his family via fluttering his eyelashes. Schumacher spent several months in a coma at the Grenoble Hospital in France after suffering a near-fatal skiing accident in the French Alps on December 29, 2013. Now, however, his wife Corinna recently assured Michael’s fans that the worst is behind them: “The German Grand Prix gives me the perfect opportunity to cordially thank

The White House pretended to champion American workers this week with gimmicky initiatives on federal job training and “workplace innovation.” But far from the Beltway dog-and-pony show, a group of American workers ruthlessly shafted by the Obama administration was finally getting some real support — and inching toward justice. (snip) The scheming feds have defied the workers’ public-records requests and withheld more than 7,000 pages of critical e-mails and documents from the workers, who’ve been mired in time-consuming litigation that has cost millions of dollars. ‘‘For more than four years, US taxpayer-paid government lawyers have taken advantage of every procedural

Eating ice cream is the summer heat is one of life´s great feats, but is it really ice cream if it doesn’t melt? Christie Watson of Cincinnati had been treating her kids to ice cream sandwiches from Walmart but one morning she noticed an uneaten sandwich left outside had barely melted overnight in the 80 degree weather. "I thought that´s quite weird," Watson told local station WCPO 9. "So I looked at the box, and it doesn´t say artificial ice cream. It says ice cream." Perplexed, she shared her story and the station decided to conduct a little ice cream experiment. The station set

Fresh evidence that Russia is directly shelling Ukrainian military targets is stoking concerns that Vladimir Putin feels increasingly comfortable running roughshod over his neighbors in defiance of the U.S. and Europe, putting pressure on the Obama administration to draw a red line that even Moscow can see. "Putin seems like he´s unchecked," Rep. Buck McKeon, R-Calif., chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, told Fox Business Network, calling the latest Russian involvement a "clear escalation." The Obama administration has taken a decidedly tougher tone than Europe against Putin since the start of the Ukraine crisis,

The unemployment rate is at its lowest point since September 2008 — the fastest one-year drop in nearly 30 years. 401(k)s are growing, fewer homes are underwater, and for the first time in more than a decade, business leaders around the world have declared that the world’s number one place to invest isn’t China; it’s the United States of America — and our lead is growing. None of this is an accident. It’s thanks to the resilience and resolve of the American people that our country has recovered faster

Someone has petitioned the UK Government´s Home Office demanding that the term "denier" be classified as "hate speech."
