The Navy is sending a second aircraft carrier strike group to the Asia Pacific region amid new tensions with China over a dangerous aerial encounter between a Chinese interceptor and Navy P-8 surveillance craft. The strike group led by the USS Carl Vinson departed San Diego for the Pacific on Friday, the Navy said in an announcement of what it terms a “planned” deployment. China’s military on Saturday, meanwhile, demanded an end to all U.S. monitoring flights and called U.S. criticism of dangerous Chinese jet maneuvers false. Chinese Defense Ministry spokesman Yang Yujun said in a statement that a Chinese fighter

Four men were shot dead in separate attacks early Sunday morning and at least 13 other people have been wounded during shootings since Saturday afternoon, authorities said. A 17-year-old boy was shot and killed in the Little Village neighborhood at around 6 a.m. Sunday, according to Chicago Police Department News Affairs Officer Jose Estrada. The boy, who police said is a documented gang member, was standing on a sidewalk in the 2200 block of South Marshall Boulevard on the Southwest Side when he was approached by two males who shouted gang slogans at him and then opened fire.

How do you deal with a hideous terrorist group that has morphed into a Mideast state with a huge war chest and an aggressive army - and beheads an American journalist? Since the gruesome slaughter of James Foley, U.S. officials are debating whether the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) can be contained or must be rolled back in the near term. President Obama appears wedded to a strategy of containment - so far. (Snip) Its leaders have made clear that they will focus on Western and American targets once they consolidate their territorial gains. ISIS is training thousands

The British Rapper Suspected

It’s no wonder British Prime Minister David Cameron cut his vacation short and rushed back to London: It was that darned Abdel-Majed Abdel Bary again. British media outlets and the New York Post are reporting that Bary, who rapped under the name “L Jinny,” is a suspect in the beheading of American journalist James Foley. (You can find this scum’s videos on YouTube if you’re in the mood to be nauseated.) In truth, British intelligence probably knew who he was almost immediately. The whole story of bringing in Professor Henry Higgins to determine the origin of his accent was probably

Scott Brown Surges in New Hampshire,

The latest poll in the New Hampshire Senate race, released last week, shows Republican Scott Brown surging into a statistical tie with Dem Sen. Jeanne Shaheen. The WMUR Granite State Poll shows incumbent Shaheen leading Brown by two points, 46-44, within the polls margin of error. In July, Shaheen was leading Brown by 12 points. Shaheen, who is still fairly popular, is weighed down by Obama´s continuing unpopularity. Just 37% of voters in New Hampshire approve of his job performance. Shaheen has also been dragged down by Brown´s relentless campaigning against amnesty and the Obama Administration´s disjointed response to the

An earthquake measuring an estimated 6.0 struck southern Napa County early Sunday with widespread reports of damage throughout the area.This was the largest Bay Area quake since the 1989 Loma Prieta quake, which measured around a 6.9, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. The worst damage appeared to be at the Napa Valley Mobile Home Park in Napa, where at least four homes were destroyed by fire and up to eight more were damaged, according to Napa County Fire Capt. Steve Becker. No residents were injured, but hours after the quake, the fires continued to burn. "It´s breaking my heart,"

Gov. Nixon sees justice being

Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon says he´s confident that justice will be served in the shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown, which led to protests and standoffs between the community and police in Ferguson. Still, the Democratic governor allowed for the possibility that the police officer allegedly responsible for the death of the unarmed teen might not be charged: “All of those things could happen," he said Sunday on CNN´s "State of the Union." "But the bottom line is our focus here is on making sure that the dual investigations, one by the local prosecutor and by the U.S. attorney general and

With an economy on the
upswing, Dayton is tough target
Star-Tribune [Minneapolis, MN], by Ricardo Lopez    Original Article

Minnesota Republicans hoping to seize control of the governor’s residence have a problem when it comes to the economy: The news is too good. With business on the upswing and a state unemployment rate that’s among the lowest in the nation, Republicans lack a key issue voters often gravitate to during election season. Four years ago, when the unemployment rate topped 7 percent and the state faced a projected $6.2 billion deficit, then-gubernatorial candidates Republican Tom Emmer and DFLer Mark Dayton presented voters with starkly different plans to stem the hemorrhaging of jobs and balance the state budget.

Iran´s Revolutionary Guards have shot down a radar-evading Israeli spy drone that was trying to penetrate Iran´s Natanz nuclear enrichment site, state news agency ISNA said on Sunday, quoting the Revolutionary Guards. "The downed aircraft was of the stealth, radar-evasive type and it intended to penetrate the off-limit nuclear area in Natanz... but was targeted by a ground-to-air missile before it managed to enter the area," ISNA said, citing a statement by the Revolutionary Guards. The Israeli military said it did not comment on foreign reports. Israel and the West suspect Iran of planning to build a nuclear bomb. In the

After a week of defiance, press conferences and an unusual rally to mark his booking on felony charges, Gov. Rick Perry’s legal team makes its first courtroom appearance on Friday, kicking off the more mundane legal process that could begin to offer a better glimpse at the case against the governor. A week ago Perry was indicted on two felony counts — coercion of a public servant and abuse of official capacity — over his threat to veto $7.5 million in state funds for Texas´ public integrity unit. Perry wanted Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg, whose office oversees that unit,

The brutal Islamic State (IS) terrorists, who wanted Aafia Siddiqui aka ‘Lady al-Qaeda’ swapped for decapitated photojournalist James Foley, are merely the latest in a long line of fanatics seeking the release of a woman caught redhanded in Afghanistan with detailed plans on how to kill the masses by spreading Ebola, and with dirty bombs and chemical weapons that would somehow spare children while killing off adults. She also had two pounds of highly toxic sodium cyanide hidden in her bag and documents detailing potential New York targets for attack, including Wall Street, the Empire State Building, the Brooklyn Bridge, the

An earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 6.0 struck California´s northern San Francisco Bay area early Sunday,damaging buildings, starting fires and leaving thousands without power. The 30-second earthquake struck just before 3:30am about 10 miles northwest of American Canyon, which is about 6 miles southwest of Napa, in California wine country, Leslie Gordon of the U.S. Geological Survey said. It´s the largest earthquake to shake the Bay Area since the 6.9 magnitude Loma Prieta quake in 1989, the USGS said.

We began documenting two months ago the “border crisis” of unaccompanied alien children, UAC’s, was a pure ruse, a figment. Constructed simply to create the optics of crisis and support the demand for comprehensive immigration reform prior to the congressional recess. Evidence continued to mount week after week as we followed the money flowing out of the DHS and HHS agencies to various left-wing social constructs who were profiting from the scheme. Panic and alarm sounded as $3.7 billion was demanded by Obama to cope with the non existent “border crisis” - couched more favorably as a “humanitarian crisis”.

The sadistic beheading of the American journalist James Foley by an ISIL killer apparently from Britain, just a few days ago, is the first such killing of an American by a jihadist with a British passport. But it is the second ritual beheading carried out by British Islamists (the head of a British soldier, Drummer Lee Rigby, was hacked from his body by two of them in Woolwich, London last year in full public view). Jihadists from Britain are at the forefront of the most violent extremism seen in modern times and many will properly be puzzled by how such people be citizens of a civilised country like Britain and why we seem powerless

The murder of American photojournalist James Foley by hooded thugs in the Islamic State ought to unite our country in a passion for justice, but it won’t. Our country no longer strives for justice. Otherwise the death of James Foley would never have happened. The terrorists who now control nearly half of Iraq and a good portion of Syria would have been exterminated long ago like the pestilent plague they are. It’s not just our failure to wage war against evil overseas either that reveals our decline as a great nation. You only have to look to the disaster in Ferguson, Missouri,

The British security services MI5 and MI6 have reportedly identified a British hip-hop artist as the key suspect in the hunt for the killer who beheaded American journalist James Foley. The Sunday Times newspaper said Abdel-Majed Abdel Bary, from Maida Vale in West London, had become a crucial part of the investigation. The paper attributed the information to “senior government sources.” Bary, 23, is the son of an Egyptian-born militant who is awaiting trial on terror charges in New York tied to the deadly 1998 bombings of embassies in Kenya and Tanzania. Former hostages held by ISIS have said he is one of several jihadists

AMERICAN CANYON -- A magnitude 6.0 earthquake struck 3 miles northwest of American Canyon (Napa County) at 3:20 a.m., according to the U.S. Geological Survey. The quake was felt widely throughout Northern California and had a depth of 6.7 miles, officials said. In Benicia, several miles from the epicenter, the quake was strong enough to knocked pictures off mantles.

Why Interest Rates

A sharp debate within the Federal Reserve over when to raise interest rates was publicly aired last week at the annual central bankers’ conference in Jackson Hole, Wyo. On one side is a small yet vocal minority of Fed officials who want to head off inflation by raising rates sooner rather than later. On the other is a majority that thinks a near-term rate hike would stifle growth and, with it, any chance of restoring health to the labor market. That group includes Janet Yellen, the Fed’s chairwoman, and most members of the Fed’s policy committee. Continue reading the main story Related

Why Is It So Hard for

America has a deficit of workers. Willing workers. Capable workers. Skilled, or at least semi-skilled workers, who can do a job and do it well. There are at least one million jobs that go begging day after day if only employers could find workers to fill them. This probably seems hard-to-believe. After all, how can America have a worker shortage when we have about 18 million Americans who are unemployed or underemployed? When the real unemployment rate is 12 percent? (Snip) But there are also millions of unemployed Americans who don’t have the skill sets to match what employers are in need

The sign was put up as part of a city program that allows businesses to post an advertisement in an area where they have helped maintain city flowerbeds. The sign that read “Yield Sneakers Bacon” was removed after a woman, identifying herself as a Muslim, posted in an online community forum, stating she was personally offended by the sign, according to a WPTZ News report.
