Iraq conflict: US ´plans aid
drop to Iraqi Turkmen´
BBC News [UK], by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 8/27/2014 8:03:39 PM     Post Reply
The US is considering making aid drops to Shia Turkmen in northern Iraq who are under siege from Islamic State (IS) militants, US defence sources say. President Obama is also close to expanding US air strikes against IS after seeking support from several EU allies, according to US officials. Last week the UN said urgent action was needed to stop a massacre in Amerli. The Iraqi town is at risk of falling into the hands of IS, who now control large swathes of Iraq and Syria. The majority of Amerli´s residents are Shia Turkmen, who are seen as apostates by

Time Warner Cable Inc. nationwide Internet service disruption this morning is increasing the scrutiny of its planned merger with Comcast Corp. Governor Andrew Cuomo said he has directed the New York State Department of Public Service to investigate the outage as part of its review of Comcast’s proposed acquisition of Time Warner Cable. Time Warner Cable said it has restored Internet service for customers across the U.S. “Today’s widespread Internet outage that has apparently impacted more than 11 million customers at Time Warner - which is based in New York - is a stark reminder that our economy is increasingly

Do you remember this bit from the Constitution of the United States? [The President] shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur; . . . That’s the so-called “Treaty Clause” from Article II, Section 2, Clause 2 of the Constitution. It is one of several checks on executive power thoughtfully provided by the Founders but flouted by the Golfer-in-Chief currently occupying the White House. Can’t get two-thirds of the Senate to approve a bit of Green Legislation you favor? No problem! Just pretend that the United States

Ad War Heating up in
Massachusetts Governor´s Race
Associated Press, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 8/27/2014 7:39:59 PM     Post Reply
Boston - The sharp elbows are coming out in the Massachusetts governor’s race. On Wednesday, a super PAC supporting Republican candidate Charlie Baker unveiled a television ad targeting Democrat Martha Coakley. The 30-second spot faults Coakley for underestimating the state’s gas tax during a television appearance while supporting last year’s decision to hike the tax by 3 cents to 24 cents a gallon, the first increase since 1991. Coakley also opposes a ballot question which would repeal a law automatically linking future hikes in the tax to inflation. The Commonwealth Future Political Action Committee is funded largely by the

A staffer on the long-running television crime show Cops was shot and killed Tuesday night by gunfire from local police, while videotaping an armed robbery in progress in Omaha, Nebraska, that also left the suspect dead. According to the Omaha Police Department, the incident took place at a Wendy´s restaurant around 9:20 p.m. CT, in the vicinity of 42nd Street and Dodge. Initial reports said the TV crew member — now identified by Langley Productions (which produces Cops) as 38-year-old audio technician Bryce Dion — had been critically injured. The news of his death broke Wednesday morning, as first reported by the

IRS back-up baloney

Some 15 months after Americans learned about the IRS’ targeting of conservative groups, we still have no clue how such an abuse was allowed to happen. And every day, the story only gets murkier. This week, for instance, a government watchdog group, Judicial Watch, said administration officials admitted that all the “missing” e-mails belonging to Lois Lerner (the woman at the heart of the scandal) had been backed up after all — as part of a practice to back up all the government’s e-mails. No government official had said anything like that before. As House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., describes it, these reports are

Katie Couric and Diane Sawyer were so at war with each other that a rattled Couric once bitched: ´I wonder who she blew this time to get it´ when Sawyer beat her to win an interview, a new book claims. The TV queens were bitter rivals while on ABC´s Good Morning America and NBC´s Today show. And Sheila Weller´s book, The News Sorority, tells how Couric was left furious when Sawyer scored an interview with Aleta St James, who aged 57 became one of the oldest women in the US to give birth to twins, in 2004. So furious was

One thing an old Ivy League revolutionary can’t stand is people noticing that he represents the Establishment, that he embodies the System to a point where he can make it stop and make it go. He will go to great lengths to convince himself, if not others, this is not so. Take Eric H. Holder Jr., Columbia College Class of 1973, Columbia Law School Class of 1976, now into his sixth year as U.S. attorney general of the Obama Imperium. The man really wants us to think he is not also “the man.” Yes, he is “the attorney general of the United

Two top federal judges Wednesday said the nation’s immigration courts are in chaos, with the backlog of cases at an historic high of 375,000 for just 227 judges, leading to a minimum three-year delay in hearings for illegal immigrants. In Washington to take advantage of the current crisis to demand a new court system, the judges accused the Justice Department of treating their courts like Cinderella’s abusive family by starving them of money and support and blamed the insufficient Justice funding for letting illegals “linger” in the country. “Immigration courts are the forgotten stepchild,” said Immigration Judge Dana Leigh Marks of San

[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.

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

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

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

(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

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
