Ad Sales Drop Cause New York
Times Profits to Collapse 54%
Breitbart´s Big Journalism, by John Nolte    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 7/29/2014 7:29:29 PM     Post Reply
The Financial Times reports that a drop in ad sales at the New York Times caused the left-wing newspaper´s profits to collapse 54% in the second quarter of this year. The Times netted only $9.2 million this quarter compared to $20.1 million last year. A fall in advertising revenues and stepped-up investment in digital products outweighed rises in digital subscribers and circulation revenue at the New York Times, sending headline profit 54 per cent lower in the second quarter. Net income of $9.2m, or six cents a share, compared with $20.1m, or 13 cents a share, a year ago. Adjusted operating profit,

Nearly 70% of Americans disapprove of President Barack Obama´s handling of illegal immigration, and a plurality oppose any emergency funding to address the border crisis, according to a new national poll. The Associated Press-GfK poll found that 68% disapprove of Obama on illegal immigration while only 31% approve. When asked if they "favor, oppose or neither favor nor oppose emergency spending by the federal government to improve living conditions for children currently being detained for crossing the border illegally and to allow deportation hearings for those children to proceed more quickly," 38% of respondents opposed while 32% favored authorizing emergency funds.

Jeff Sessions: John Boehner
´Surrenders to a Lawless President´
Breitbart´s Big Government, by Matthew Boyle    Original Article

Senate Budget Committee ranking member Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) said in a statement Tuesday that House Speaker John Boehner’s border crisis working group’s legislation is a “surrender” to a “lawless president.” “The Obama Administration has openly declared its plan to implement a unilateral executive amnesty for 5–6 million more illegal immigrants,” Sessions said. He went on: This unlawful amnesty—urged on by congressional Democrats—would include work permits, taking jobs directly from millions of struggling American citizens. Any action Congress might consider to address the current border crisis would be futile should the President go forward with these lawless actions. Congress must speak out

A GOP Ultimatum to Vlad

With the party united, the odds are now at least even that the GOP will not only hold the House but also capture the Senate in November. But before traditional conservatives cheer that prospect, they might take a closer look at the foreign policy that a Republican Senate would seek to impose upon the nation. Specifically, they should spend time reading S. 2277, the "Russian Aggression Prevention Act of 2014," introduced by Sen. Bob Corker on May 1, and endorsed by half of the Senate´s GOP caucus.

New York - ESPN has suspended outspoken sportscaster Stephen A. Smith for a week because of his comments about domestic abuse suggesting women should make sure that they don´t do anything to provoke an attack. Smith´s commentary occurred during a discussion on ESPN2´s "First Take" last Friday about the NFL´s two-game suspension of Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice following charges he assaulted his now-wife. The remarks attracted widespread attention, including a stinging rebuke online from a fellow ESPN personality. Smith issued an on-air apology Monday, saying it was the most egregious mistake of his

ABC´s Harris Falsely Hits Sarah
Palin as the ´Woman Who Says
She Can See Russia from Her House´
Media Research Center, by Scott Whitlock    Original Article

Nightline co-anchor Dan Harris on Monday night mocked Sarah Palin for her new internet channel and falsely identified the conservative as "the woman who says she can see Russia from her house." [MP3 audio here.] No, she didn´t. It was Saturday Night Live´s Tina Fey in 2008 who uttered this line. In the tease for the report, Harris played the actual quote: "You can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska." So what is the point of misleading viewers with something Palin didn´t say? Making his contempt clear, Harris derided the Republican as the "former half-term governor of Alaska."

An unreleased version of one of the most celebrated songs in rock, Stairway To Heaven, is to come out later this year after sitting in the vaults for more than 40 years. An alternative take Stairway, one of Led Zeppelin’s most famous compositions, will be released on a new version of the band’s fourth album due out later this year. Guitarist Jimmy Page has sifted through vintage studio recordings to find different versions of each of the eight tracks from the Led Zeppelin IV album--which first came out in 1971--for a companion disc to accompany the reissue, part of a

AP-GfK Poll: Americans´
illegal immigration concerns rising
amid surge of unaccompanied kids

McALLEN, Texas — For nearly two months, images of immigrant children who have crossed the border without a parent, only to wind up in concrete holding cells once in United States, have tugged at heartstrings. Yet most Americans now say U.S. law should be changed so they can be sent home quickly, without a deportation hearing. A new Associated Press-GfK poll finds two-thirds of Americans now say illegal immigration is a serious problem for the country, up 14 points since May and on par with concern about the issue in May 2010, when Arizona´s passage of a strict anti-immigration measure

It may take a while before investors get a clear picture on just how well—or poorly—the U.S. economy is performing. As Wall Street awaits Wednesday´s reading on gross domestic product in the second quarter, two things are becoming clear: Growth is a good deal short of where most economists had expected it to be by now, and even a particularly strong showing over the past three months probably came in large part because the period before it was so bad. "Second quarter, you´re getting a bounce-back from the first quarter," Jeffrey Rosenberg, BlackRock´s chief investment strategist for fixed income, told

Everyone knows that we start unwinnable wars with Israel because the real victory happens when you predictably side with us each time. And you’ve been so supportive of our strategy that we really want to acknowledge your helpfulness. In particular, we thank you for: - Focusing so much more on our suffering than anyone else’s. Nigerians must die in far greater numbers before you take notice, so we’re glad that you value our lives so much more. - Minimizing your coverage, if any, of our attacks

Texas Sheriffs Speak Out On
Damage From Illegal Immigration
Daily Caller, by Chuck Ross    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 7/29/2014 5:49:39 PM     Post Reply
The influx of illegal immigrants into southern Texas is depleting law enforcement resources and causing heavy amounts of damage in the area, said several sheriffs gathered for the annual Sheriff’s Association of Texas convention. “The damage is constant,” Brooks County chief deputy Benny Martinez told News 4 San Antonio at the conference, held in San Antonio on Monday and Tuesday. Martinez estimated that 85 percent of cases he handles are related to immigration issues and that his rural county is not equipped to handle the workload. According to News 4, ranches just north of the border are facing ripped fences, broken water

Italian journalist leaves Gaza, tells truth once free from Hamas retaliation. Yesterday one of the stories thrust into the mainstream media was nearly simultaneous explosions in a Palestinian neighborhood and at al-Shifa hospital. The media immediately took the Hamas line that it was Israeli missiles. Later, the IDF stated that it had not fired on those locations, and that the explosions were misfired Hamas or Islamic Jihad missiles. The media played it as he said, he said. But an Italian journalist has just left Gaza and is telling the truth about what happened now that he needs not fear Hamas

Seriously, What Is John Kerry Doing?

Let’s concede for a moment that most of us don’t believe the United States should be taking sides in conflicts abroad. Even so, most Americans would probably agree that at a minimum our diplomatic efforts should not cause unnecessary harm. Which brings me to Secretary of State John Kerry’s recent misadventure in the Middle East. It seems like a rather big deal that Egypt, Israel, Fatah, Jordan, Saudi Arabia—ostensibly, all allies of ours—agree on anything. This development, one imagines, might be something the United States would be interested in fostering rather than destroying. Certainly, the idea that Hamas’ power should be

Victorian house that was first in

A 151-year-old house that was the first in the world to be lit using hydroelectricity is once again harnessing the power of water to light the property. Cragside, in Northumberland, was built by Lord Armstrong in 1863 and he used lakes on the estate to generate electricity through a turbine. A 56ft (17-metre) Archimedes screw has now been installed which will use water to produce enough energy to light the 350 bulbs in the house. Geordie actor Robson Green today turned on the screw at the National Trust property and launched the hydropower project. Property curator Andrew Sawyer said: ‘It

On his Tuesday radio show, Sean Hannity went off on a rant against Secretary of State John Kerry, whose settlement offer was unanimously rejected by the Israeli, which was an unprecedented show of disapproval by that cabinet. Hannity accused the Obama administration’s head diplomat of lacking the moral clarity to understand the gravity of the threat Hamas has posed to Israel’s security. “It’s so bad, the Israeli cabinet, legendary by the way for its inability to agree on anything, actually rejected Kerry’s proposal 19-0,” Hannity said. “All across Israel, today, there’s nothing but universal condemnation for John Kerry

Sandra Fluke´s biggest
donor is ... Sandra Fluke
Washington Examiner, by Ashe Schow    Original Article

Liberal darling and free-birth-control advocate Sandra Fluke is her own biggest donor in her state Senate race, according to official California campaign finance reports. Fluke donated $12,000 to her campaign and $4,826.27 in non-monetary contributions. While $16,826.27 may not sound like a lot, Fluke also loaned her campaign $100,000. Where does a 2012 law school grad working as a social justice attorney get a loan that size? Her campaign never responded to a Washington Examiner inquiry, so we’re left to speculate. Perhaps the loan was in part secured by the family of Fluke’s husband, Adam Mutterperl.

President Obama announced new, tougher sanctions against Russia on Tuesday, as Western nations ramped up pressure on Russian President Vladimir Putin in the wake of the downing of a passenger jet in Ukraine. From the South Lawn of the White House, Obama said that the U.S would extend sanctions to major sectors of the Russian economy and three state-controlled banks. “The U.S. is imposing new sanctions in key sectors of the Russian economy: energy, arms and finance,” Obama said. “Today, Russia is once again isolating itself from the international community,” he added, saying the penalties would have even "bigger bite"

President Barack Obama is considering using executive action to let millions of undocumented immigrants obtain work permits that would allow them stay in the U.S. legally, said a Democratic Senate aide. White House officials have told allies in Congress to expect an announcement of a large-scale action most likely in September, just before the midterm congressional elections, the aide said, asking for anonymity to discuss an unannounced plan. Obama has said he’ll act in the absence of legislation from Congress on the 12 million undocumented immigrants living in the U.S. In the House, Republican leaders have declined to bring a
