Hamas official: Palestinian
reconciliation is top priority

Jerusalem Post [Israel], by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 11/23/2012 6:42:49 PM

Palestinian reconciliation meetings are due to take place after Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas´s return from the United Nations, Senior Hamas official Ahmad Yousef told Ma´an on Friday. In an interview with Palestinian news agency Ma´an, Yousef said that Egypt will ask the Palestinians to resume dialogue over Palestinian reconciliation. According to Ma´an, Yousef stressed that reconciliation would be a top priority of the Hamas movement in the coming months, after Abbas´s statehood bid, set to take place at the UN on November 29.

Comments:
There´s some real irony when competing terrorist organizations can´t seem to get along in a bid to gain "legitimacy" with something as corrupt and useless as the UN. Maybe if they had a rotating daily terrorist "leader of the day," this could confuse IDF intelligence operations./S

People may have forgotten the horror of when the Hamas took over Gaza- they marched the PA police chief and his assistants and main lieutenants to the roof of the government building and threw them off to the asphalt 60 feet below, killing all of them. So, now, faced with the IDF patience of their shenanigans running low, they suddenly set "reconciliation" as a "top priority". They are murdering brutes and can never be negotiated with in good faith. But, since it is other Muslims they seek to enslave and murder in this instance, who cares?

GM stops selling some Cruze
small cars, offering no reason
Reuters, by Ben Klayman    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 3/28/2014 12:56:37 PM     Post Reply
Detroit - General Motors Co said on Friday that it had told its dealers to stop selling certain Chevrolet Cruze small cars for an undisclosed issue, another blow to a company dealing with the crisis created by defective ignition switches linked to at least 12 deaths. The automaker said the affected Cruze cars, 2013 and 2014 models equipped with a 1.4-liter turbo engine, are not being recalled. The action only covers the affected models that are unsold on dealer lots. The 1.4-liter turbo accounts for about 60 percent of the Cruze´s sale mix, a GM spokesman said. "I can just confirm that we put a stop-sale in last night," GM spokesman Alan Adler said.

The National Archives will make public 2,500 documents from the Clinton White House on Friday, providing a glimpse into the daily events of an administration that faces new scrutiny in light of Hillary Rodham Clinton’s possible presidential ambitions. (Snip) The first two troves of memos, transcripts, speeches and the occasional email provided insight into everyday White House conversations, including Mr. Clinton’s insecurity after the 1994 elections, Mrs. Clinton’s efforts to shape her public image, and a White House staff grappling with rapid changes in technology and media. Even moments that seem mundane will be pored over

Former Alabama Sen. Jeremiah Denton, who survived 7½ years as a prisoner of war in North Vietnam and alerted the U.S. military to conditions there when he blinked the word "torture" in Morse code during a television interview, has died. He was 89. Denton´s grandson, Edward Denton, says he died about 8 a.m. Friday at a hospice facility surrounded by family. Edward Denton says his grandfather had been in declining health for the past year and died from heart problems. Denton, a Republican who served a single term in the U.S. Senate, was a strong advocate of conservative causes and backer of the Reagan administration.

All told, it’s at least a $292 million commitment from the Tigers, giving Cabrera, 30, reportedly the most lucrative contract in professional sports history. “We’re absolutely thrilled to be able to keep the best player in the game a member of the Tigers

A little over a year ago, Stevie Nicks told Rolling Stone there was "more of a chance of an asteroid hitting the Earth" than Christine McVie returning to Fleetwood Mac. Well, it might be time to prepare for armageddon because the Mac´s keyboardist and singer - who quit the band in 1998 after a three-decade stint in the group - is returning for a world tour beginning this September and a possible new album. The tour, entitled On With the Show, will kick off on Tuesday, Sept. 30 in Minneapolis, Minn. at the Target Center, with the band performing 34 shows in 33 cities across North America.

Manila - The Philippines has signed contracts worth $527 million to buy 12 fighter jets from South Korea and four combat utility helicopters from Canada to boost the capability of its air force, one of the weakest in Southeast Asia.

US President Barack Obama’s visit to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia comes at a crucial moment for one of the Middle East’s most enduring strategic alliances. (Snip) It is no secret that the Saudis are extremely unhappy with the interim agreement currently in place, in which Iran gains some 7 billion dollars of sanctions relief for doing nothing but slowing down its nuclear enrichment program. The problem was compounded by the discovery that Washington had been holding secret communications it held with Iranian negotiators in the Sultanate of Oman without the knowledge of either Israel and Saudi Arabia, after having

Washington - Investigators dubbed them "the librarians," four Air Force nuclear missile launch officers at the center of a still-unfolding scandal over cheating on proficiency tests. "They tended to be at the hub" of illicit exchanges of test information, said Adam Lowther, one of seven investigators who dug into details of cheating that has embarrassed the Air Force and on Thursday brought down virtually the entire operational command of the 341st Missile Wing at Malmstrom Air Force Base, Mont. At least 82 missile launch officers face disciplinary action, but it was the four "librarians" who allegedly facilitated the cheating,

As Obama meets the pope,
Francis´ smile masks a serious message
Los Angeles Times, by Doyle McManus    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 3/27/2014 3:45:00 PM     Post Reply
When Jorge Mario Bergoglio became Pope Francis a little more than a year ago, the first thing that struck those who knew him well was his unexpected, beatific smile. “In Argentina, he didn’t smile like that,” Sergio Rubin, the pope’s biographer, said this week at a conference sponsored by the Ethics and Public Policy Center. “That was the big surprise.” Since then, the pope has mostly kept on smiling — in homilies, in audiences, in meetings with the homeless and the poor. If you look at the pictures from Francis’ meeting with President Obama on Thursday, though, the smile is there only some of the time.

Obama Invites Pope Francis

Rome - Meeting for the first time today, President Obama personally “invited and urged” Pope Francis to visit the United States, telling him “people would be overjoyed to see him.” If the pope were to accept the president’s invitation, it would be his first visit to the United States as pope. Earlier this month, House Speaker John Boehner also invited the pope to address a joint meeting of Congress — something no pope has ever done. Speaking at a joint news conference with Prime Minister Renzi today, Obama said it was a “great honor” to meet the pope and that they had a wide-ranging discussion that centered on

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) said the fault of struggling to sign up on the Obamacare exchanges didn’t lie with the faulty website, but with the people who weren’t “educated on how to use the Internet.” Explaining the reasoning behind the latest Obamacare delay, Reid said too many people just didn’t know to use their computer properly and needed more time. Apparently, it had nothing to do with the well-documented failings of the website that have embarrassed the White House for months. “We have hundreds of thousands of people who tried to sign up who didn’t get through,” he said.

Okay, THAT was certainly embarrassing. At the end of a joint news conference with Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte in the Netherlands on Tuesday, the applause for Barack Obama came from a grand total of one guy. One. After thanking the crowd twice for suffering through his boring, standard worn-out spiel, Obama looked around the room, expecting the usual fanfare and applause he receives from his loyal followers back home. It never came. Instead, the Leader of the Free World was met with one slow, awkward clap. Question: was MSNBC’s Chris Matthews in the house?

Six months ago, Chairman of the House Oversight Committee Darrell Issa subpoenaed the emails of former head of IRS Tax Exempt Organizations Lois Lerner. Lerner was in charge during the IRS´ inappropriate targeting of conservative, patriot and tea party groups. IRS officials have failed to comply with the subpoena and today during a hearing on Capitol Hill, Issa threatened IRS Commissioner John A. Koskinen, one of only two political appointees at the agency, with contempt. "Unfortunately you´ve been more concerned with managing political fallout than complying with this Committee," Issa said, urging Koskinen to comply or "potentially be held in

U.S. President Barack Obama and Pope Francis met Thursday for the first time at Vatican City, offering a chance for a reset of sorts between the administration and Catholic leadership following years of strained relations. The two world leaders greeted each other with a smile and a handshake, and posed for pictures before sitting down across a table from each other. The goal of the meeting: Focus on areas where two of the world´s most influential men agree and gently tread ground where they differ. The President and the Pontiff will, as the White House said in a statement, focus on "shared commitment

Via America Rising and the IJR, is this the key that finally unlocks the enigma of Harry Reid, tinpot demagogue? Maybe, from moment to moment, this guy just … doesn’t realize what’s coming out of his mouth. Hard to believe he could forget saying on the Senate floor that all ObamaCare horror stories — all of them — are a GOP/Koch brothers fairy tale designed to besmirch the stellar reputation of the Affordable Care Act. Those remarks got heavy coverage in conservative media, and even got picked up at WaPo. You don’t toss a grenade that powerful without choosing your

In an address to the House on Wednesday, Alabama Representative Mo Brooks read aloud a letter sent to him by Dr. Marlin Gill of Decatur. The letter holds nothing back while detailing the excessive costs and regulations that Dr. Gill calls Obamacare’s “war against doctors.” Here is the full text of the letter, courtesy of Rep. Brooks’ office: Dear Congressman Brooks, As a practicing family physician, I plead for help against what I can best characterize as Washington’s war against doctors.

Nearly six in 10 people disapprove of President Obama´s job performance in a new poll by the Associated Press, the highest rating recorded by the newswire. According to the AP-GFK survey released Wednesday, 59 percent disapprove of Obama´s job performance while 41 percent approve. A similar poll released by the news outlet in January found 45 percent approved of him while 53 percent disapproved. Other recent polling has found Obama´s disapproval rating slightly lower, remaining in the low 50s. A CBS News poll Tuesday showed 50 percent disapproval, while Gallup has his disapproval at 52 percent. In the AP poll,

On Wednesday, Obama administration officials announced a two week extension in the deadline to enroll in the Affordable Care Act or face a penalty defined as a tax. Asked about this “delay” in the implementation of the ACA on Wednesday, Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) said that there has been no delay. He added that some of the users who experienced problems with the website early on need more time, partially because “people are not educated about how to use the internet.” “There’s no hiccup or delay,” Reid insisted. “We had hundreds of thousands of people who tried to sign up and

On Tuesday night two things happened. 1. A trio of Secret Service agents were sent home from Amsterdam after one was found passed out drunk in a hotel hallway. 2. The Obama Administration announced (another) extension of the enrollment deadline for Obamacare signups. At first glance, these two events have little in common with one another. But, modern politics is all about narratives and storylines. And, both of these events confirm a growing concern from the public about President Obama: That he´s just not up to governing his administration and, by extension, the country, effectively.

One by one, the myths of the Affordable Care Act have been revealed. When the curtain on open enrollment falls on March 31, the last remaining big myth of ObamaCare will be fully exposed: The individual mandate has failed. After a last-ditch effort with President Obama himself encouraging "young invincibles" to sign up before the deadline, the administration is scrambling to boost enrollment. On Tuesday, the White House announced that people who applied for coverage on the federal health-insurance exchange will have until mid-April to finish the paperwork. The mandate was supposed to be the administration´s magical elixir for the assorted shortcomings

More than six million Americans have now signed up for private insurance under the Affordable Care Act, according to the White House, with just four days to go until the end of its first open enrollment period. While traveling in Italy on Thursday, President Obama shared the news in a conference call with thousands of health-care navigators and volunteers helping enroll people on state and federal marketplaces. As the volume of consumers seeking health plans has surged -- there were over 1.5 million visits to HealthCare.gov Wednesday and more than 430,000 calls to the marketplaces´ call centers -- Obama urged those on
