Gaza has had "very negative impact" on US-Israel relations, said Martin Indyk, former US special envoy to the Middle East process, in an interview published this week. [Snip] Speaking extensively on US relations with Israel since the end of the latest round of peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians last April, and throughout Operation Protective Edge, a candid Indyk said at times US President Barack Obama has become "enraged" at the Israeli government, both for its actions and for its treatment of his chief diplomat, US Secretary of State John Kerry. Some of that criticism, targeted at Kerry during

France´s new government was dealt an early blow on Wednesday after a key gauge showed business optimism deteriorated in August. French factory confidence fell to its lowest level in more than a year in August, adding to signs that the economy may struggle to grow after a stagnant first half. A slump in retail trade also dragged down overall business optimism. INSEE, France´s statistics office, said manufacturing sentiment dipped to 96 in August, from 97 in July. This was its lowest level in 13 months, and well below the long-run average of 100. The overall index slipped to 91 in

Jindal Suing Feds Over Common Core
Daily Caller, by Blake Neff    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 8/27/2014 5:37:43 PM     Post Reply
Opening yet another front in his increasingly complex battle against Common Core, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal is suing the federal government over the education standards. Jindal’s suit claims that the government, by using federal education grants to encourage the standards’ adoption, has illegally infringed upon states’ sovereignty in the issue of education. “The proponents of Common Core will tell you that it’s simply about one test and about standards, but that’s a ruse. Common Core is about controlling curriculum,” Jindal said in a press release announcing the lawsuit. “These are big government elitists that believe they know better than parents

More than a dozen people face federal gun charges after a monthslong Chicago-area sting operation led investigators to confiscate more than 100 guns, officials said today. Fourteen people, 12 of them convicted felons, were charged in the investigation, which involved the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and several other agencies and included the use of three confidential informants who bought shotguns and handguns from those charged, prosecutors said in a news release today. Of those charged, nine were arrested Tuesday, and three already were in state custody, according to the release. Among the firearms confiscated were 17

What is termed “Social Media” can be a vast desert of sorts: an endless vista of parched and barren land, interspersed at sparse intervals by the occasional refreshing oasis. Negotiating Facebook’s plethora of silly cat memes and the photographs of another’s impending supper are the spiritual equivalent of a diet of Splenda packets – a mix of the vapid and narcissistic elements of human endeavor, writ small. A man’s “timeline” can be a window to his soul and speaks volumes concerning the first things of his being: an ethereal “selfie” delivered for the benefit of disinterested bystanders and perhaps historians

The mayor of Lynn, Mass. says that some of the illegal aliens from Guatemala who are enrolled in her city’s public schools are adults with graying hair and “more wrinkles than I have.” “They are not all children,” Judith Flanagan Kennedy told reporters at a press conference at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday. “One of the things that we did notice when we were processing some of these students coming in was that they were adults,” she said. She added that the federal government will not allow school officials to verify their ages even though one

This is going to shock a lot of you who spend a significant portion of your day arguing about politics and current events on Facebook and Twitter, but you’re a minority. Most people on social media don’t like sharing their own opinions. Particularly when it comes to hot button issues. A study released by the Pew Internet Research Project found that users of Facebook and Twitter were about half as likely to discuss a controversial topic on social media than in a public setting like a dinner or when out with friends. Participants were asked how likely they would be

An Oct. 20 trial has been set for a Mesa woman accused of running over her husband with an SUV because he didn´t vote in the 2012 presidential election.

Daniel Solomon, who suffered a fractured pelvis, told investigators that his wife believed their family was going to face hardship as a result of Obama´s election. Holly Solomon told police she was trying to scare her husband by stopping the vehicle close to him but she accidentally stepped on the accelerator and struck him.

"It´s even worse than I´d feared," Dr. Tom Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said Wednesday of the Ebola outbreak rampaging through West Africa. "Every day this outbreak goes on, it increases the risk for another export to another country. "The sooner the world comes together to help Liberia and West Africans, the safer we will all be." Frieden spoke to CNN´s Nima Elbagir in Monrovia, Liberia, where fear and anger over the largest Ebola outbreak on record has grown as health officials put up quarantines around some of the capital city´s poorest areas.

(WASHINGTON) -- The U.S. economy has grown just 1.5 percent in the 2014 fiscal year -- far slower than White House projections -- while more than $500 billion of deficit spending was added to the national debt, according to projections released Wednesday by the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office. Just last month the Obama administration forecast 2.6 percent GDP growth in 2014. The CBO had some good economic news, predicting that the GDP will rebound and expand by 3.4 percent over the next two years due to increased demand for goods and services, businesses investments in new structures and equipment, improved consumer spending

Prosecutors say Barajas then shot Banda, but authorities never found the weapon or physical evidence. Barajas repeatedly cried when he heard the verdict today.

FORT WORTH — School trustees voted unanimously Tuesday night to take legal action against the Baptist minister who organized a janitorial project in which students expected to earn money by mopping and cleaning district schools over the summer. The Rev. Kyev Tatum was not authorized to recruit 100 youngsters to perform custodial duties at district schools, school board members said. (Snip)Parents said the students had been promised $8.25 an hour, and earlier this month, trustees voted to pay the students a total of about $60,000. Officials declined to pay Tatum a $10,000 administrative fee he asked for.

The Environmental Protection Agency’s proposed global warming regulations aren’t just about stemming global temperature rises — according to agency’s chief, they are also about “justice” for “communities of color.” “Carbon pollution standards are an issue of justice,” said EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy in a teleconference call with environmental activists. “If we want to protect communities of color, we need to protect them from climate change.” McCarthy is referring to the EPA’s proposed rule that would limit carbon dioxide emissions from existing power plants. The agency says the rule will not only help fight global warming, but will also improve public

The U.S. government is tracking and gathering intelligence on as many as 300 Americans who are fighting side by side with the Islamic State group in Iraq and Syria and are poised to become a major threat to the homeland, according to senior U.S. officials. Officials say concern is widespread in Washington that radicalized foreign fighters could return to the homeland and commit terrorist attacks with skills acquired overseas, according to officials who spoke on condition of anonymity due to the sensitivity of the information. Those concerns were heightened by the disclosure Tuesday that a California man was killed fighting

Researchers: Unemployment
Rate Higher than Reported
Breitbart Big Government, by John Nolte    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 8/27/2014 2:56:43 PM     Post Reply
The media just can´t seem to understand why Americans won´t join them in celebrating the Obama economy. There are two reasons for this disconnect. The first is that Washington DC is a booming Emerald City. Thanks to government largesse using money stolen from taxpayers, the skies are filled with construction cranes and the money flows like wine. The second reason is that unemployment numbers are pure BS; we all know it and so too does science: This problem dates back to a 1994 redesign of the survey when it went from paper-based to computer-based, although neither the researchers nor anyone

Europe´s Slow Surrender to Intolerance

On the one hand, it is completely unsurprising that Europe has become a swamp of anti-Jewish hostility. It is, after all, Europe. Anti-Jewish hostility has been its metier for centuries. (Yes, the locus of much anti-Jewish activity today is within Europe’s large Muslim-immigrant population; but the young men who threaten their Jewish neighbors draw on the language and traditions of European anti-Semitism as much as they do on Muslim modes of anti-Semitic thought.) On the other hand, the intensity, and velocity, of anti-Jewish invective—and actual anti-Jewish thuggery—has surprised even Eurocynics such as myself.

Obama is quietly forming a coalition to support airstrikes on ISIS in Syria after the execution of US journalist James Foley, according to a report on Wednesday. Obama said Tuesday in Charlotte, North Carolina that his Defense and State Departments are ´urging countries in the region and building an international coalition, including our closest allies, to support Iraqis as they take the fight to these barbaric terrorists.´ He did not specifically mention recruiting partners for bombing raids over Syrian air space. But The New York Times reported hours later, citing unnamed sources, that the U.S. was engaged in a ´diplomatic

Mitt Romney has repeatedly stated that he will not run in the 2016 presidential election, but his most recent comments suggest he may be leaving the door slightly open for another run at the White House. During a radio interview yesterday on “The Hugh Hewitt Show,” Romney responded to more questions about his possible candidacy by saying, “I know you’re going to press, but you know, this is something we gave a lot of thought to when early on I decided we’re not going to be running this time.“ “And again, we said look, I had the chance of running.

Even the late "positive thinking" avatar Norman Vincent Peale would have a tough slog finding optimism over Atlantic City´s current state, what with gaming revenues running about half of what they were eight years ago and three casinos set to turn out their lights by mid-September. But everything is relative. Compared with 50 years ago this week, the town is Las Vegas, Paris and Rio de Janeiro combined. The resort´s post-World War II decline was exacerbated by what should have been a triumph: Atlantic City had won the right to host the Democratic National Convention. For four days, beginning Aug.

Christine Lagarde, the chief of the International Monetary Fund, was placed under official investigation for negligence in a French corruption probe that dates back to her days as France’s finance minister. After a fourth round of questioning before magistrates on Wednesday, Lagarde said she would return to her work in Washington later in the day and said in a statement the decision was “without basis.” She is the third IMF managing director in a decade to face legal troubles. She and her former chief of staff face questions about their role in a 400 million-euro ($531 million) payment to a

On August 26 the California Assembly passed SB199, requiring fake guns to be brightly painted so police know they are not real if a kid or a criminal points one at them. SB199 was born in the wake of the October 23 shooting in which Breitbart News reported that Santa Rosa, CA, police shot and killed 13-year-old Andy Lopez after he refuse to drop a gun that turned out to be a replica. According to SFGate, SB199 "was introduced by [state] senator Kevin de Leon (D-Los Angeles)." It has the support of assemblyman Mark Levine (D-Rafael), who says, "Horrific things
