Palestinians certain to
win recognition as a state

Associated Press, by Edith M. Lederer

United Nations - The Palestinians are certain to win U.N. recognition as a state Thursday but success could exact a high price: Israel and the United States warn it could delay hopes of achieving an independent Palestinian state through peace talks with Israel. The United States, Israel´s closest ally, mounted an aggressive campaign to head off the General Assembly vote. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu defiantly declared Thursday that the Palestinians would have to back down from long-held positions if they ever hope to gain independence. In a last-ditch move Wednesday,

Comments:
If you wonder why PIAPS was sent to be the face of our government in negotiating the "truce" between Israel and Hamas last week, this is the prize. With it comes "humanitarian aid," like the missing billions we gave Yasser Arafat [who has currently been dug up as the PLO plays out their version of the "great scavenger hunt."]

Oh, Herself is in Washington giving a speech for AIDS World Day & where is Susan Rice [UN Ambassador]?

Real people recognize the palis as barbarians. Who cares what a third-world group of semi-barbarians thinks? Just because UN members wear expensive suits (paid for by the U.S. no doubt) doesn´t make them credible or civilized.

Of course they´ll be recognized. Look who´s in charge here! The Muslim Marxist, with a UN Ambassador who´s up to her eyeballs in Iran investments, for starters. Then there´s the Benghazi massacre, just the tip of the iceberg.
"Mr. Flexible" will ensure it´s a done deal.

So I suppose this means that rockets into Israel will no longer be gaffed off as just another terrorist attack, but rather finally be recognized as unprovoked acts of war . . . NOT.

Israel will have every right to respond with overwhelming force when the animals launch weapons at innocents.

Perhaps the Gaza Strip, that cosmopolitan place, would work well as the new HQ of the UN.

Pack up and leave.

From space Palestine will resemble the cesspool it is; kinda like everything they touch including our white house. BTW, did anyone catch Hillary´s preference to Hamas green in her jacket when she was announcing the quote-quote cease fire otherwise known as the Gaza ammunition re-supply??

Heartbleed Bug: Here Are the
Passwords You Should Change
Time Magazine, by Doug Aamoth    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 4/12/2014 9:22:25 AM     Post Reply
When it comes to changing your passwords, the Heartbleed Bug is a better-safe-than-sorry bug. This is not a case of hackers breaking into a bunch of sites and stealing all the sites’ usernames and passwords; this is a vulnerability that allowed hackers to grab relatively small chunks of data as they flowed through sites. If you happened to be entering your username, password or credit card number as someone was making a grab, it’s probably out there now. You’re playing the odds, in other words — and we don’t exactly know what the odds are. This bug has existed for a couple years but was just recently publicly disclosed,

Heartbleed bug affects gadgets everywhere
CNN Money, by Jose Pagliery    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 4/12/2014 12:33:09 AM     Post Reply
New York - The Internet bug Heartbleed doesn´t just affect websites. It also has shown up in the gadgets we use to connect to the Internet. Tech giants Cisco and Juniper have identified about two dozen networking devices affected by Heartbleed, including servers, routers, switches, phones and video cameras used by small and large businesses everywhere. (Snip) That means for two years now, someone could have been able to tap your phone calls and voicemails at work, all your emails and entire sessions at your computer or iPhone. You also could have been compromised if you logged into work from home remotely.

The NSA denies it knew

The NSA is disavowing its knowledge of the Heartbleed security vulnerability after a Bloomberg report suggested that the spy agency had exploited it for at least two years. “NSA was not aware of the recently identified vulnerability in OpenSSL, the so-called Heartbleed vulnerability, until it was made public in a private-sector cybersecurity report," NSA spokesperson Vanee Vines told The Post. "Reports that say otherwise are wrong.” The White House and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence echoed that statement Friday, saying neither the NSA nor any other part of the U.S. government knew about Heartbleed

NSA Said to Exploit Heartbleed
Bug for Intelligence for Years
Bloomberg News, by Michael Riley    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 4/11/2014 4:00:24 PM     Post Reply
The U.S. National Security Agency knew for at least two years about a flaw in the way that many websites send sensitive information, now dubbed the Heartbleed bug, and regularly used it to gather critical intelligence, two people familiar with the matter said. The NSA’s decision to keep the bug secret in pursuit of national security interests threatens to renew the rancorous debate over the role of the government’s top computer experts. Heartbleed appears to be one of the biggest glitches in the Internet’s history, a flaw in the basic security of as many as two-thirds of the world’s websites. Its discovery and the creation of a fix

Al Jazeera America, which launched last August with nearly 850 employees and 12 news bureaus in the United States, has laid off dozens of employees as part of restructuring. The channel is disbanding its sports unit and scaling back its social-media-driven show The Stream from a daily show to a once-a-week program. "The majority of people affected were freelancers and many of the staff either came from the sports group or from The Stream," Dawn Bridges, executive vp corporate communications, tells The Hollywood Reporter.

Washington - William J. Burns, a career diplomat who led the Obama administration’s back-channel negotiations with Iran, is planning to step down from his job as the State Department’s second-ranking official in October, administration officials said on Friday. Now the deputy secretary of state, Mr. Burns has been a trusted diplomat in both Republican as well as Democratic administrations. He has twice delayed his retirement, most recently at the request of President Obama. (Snip) “Since I met Bill in Moscow in 2005, I have admired his skill and precision,” Mr. Obama said in a statement, adding that he had “relied on him

Tony Abbott says rescue teams have homed in on signals they are now certain belong to the black box flight recorder from missing Malaysian flight MH370. The Prime Minister, who is in Shanghai, spoke after an aviation expert claimed the breakthrough discovery had been made. Mr Abbott said they were now engaged in a race against time to find the black box as the signal starts to fade. He will meet personally tonight with Chinese President Xi Jinping to update him on the latest efforts to find the black box, hinting it would soon be located. “We have very much narrowed down the search area...we have now had a series of detections,

Perth, Australia - Australia’s prime minister says searchers hunting for the missing Malaysian jetliner are confident underwater signals that have been picked up are coming from the jet’s black box. Tony Abbott told reporters while on an official visit to China that Australian authorities are confident they know the location of the black box from the plane that disappeared without a trace on March 8 during a flight from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, to Beijing. The plane’s black boxes, or flight data and cockpit voice recorders, could help solve the mystery of why Flight 370 veered so far off course.

Washington - Even when Sylvia Mathews Burwell was in her early 30s, friends speculated that she might return to her native Hinton, W.Va., and run for governor someday. After all, she had been a Rhodes scholar, and her mother — who later became mayor of Hinton, pop. 2,600 — had driven her daughter’s interest in politics. So far that has not happened, but plenty of other things under two presidents have. On Friday, President Obama is to nominate Ms. Burwell, currently director of the White House Office of Management and Budget, to take over one of the largest and most unwieldy parts of the federal bureaucracy as secretary of health and

If you really want to appreciate the good work that House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan and the House Republicans did Thursday in passing their budget, consider the Pencil Story. A friend of mine teaches a class that includes a lot of children from families caught up in the government welfare system, a system that encourages dependency and discourages self-reliance. She told me that the students sometimes come to class on test day without even bringing a pencil. Without a pencil, the kids face getting a zero on the test, but that, my teacher-friend said, was the point. Because they know the public schools will push them along

When David Letterman announced last week that he was stepping down as the host of CBS´ "Late Show" in 2015, speculation went into overdrive about who would replace him. On Thursday, the rumor mill was put to rest when the network announced that Stephen Colbert had been given the gig. (Snip) Colbert, 49, has played the role of an ultra-right wing talk-show host, a character he´s almost never broken from during his time on Comedy Central. In an interview Thursday with CBS Radio's Dan Raviv, CBS Chairman and CEO Les Moonves said that "Late Show" viewers can expect to see Colbert be himself in his new role.

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

Barack Obama got quite the handful on Thursday, April 10, but it was all for a good cause! As the President of the United States was boarding Air Force One with his wife Michelle Obama, a gust of wind blew up her skirt. Barack quickly stepped in and grabbed the First Lady´s billowing skirt to help her avoid a wardrobe malfunction and embarrassing Marilyn Monroe moment.

Big Government: As students flood Twitter with images of inedible slop, it´s clear that Michelle Obama´s government school lunch revamp is a costly failure. It´s time to get the feds out of kids´ lunch boxes. The $12 billion federal student lunch program, which serves 30.7 million kids, is losing participants fast — more than a million just last year, according to a recent Government Accountability Office report. The reason: the first lady´s Healthy Hunger-free Kids Act, an act that has accomplished exactly the opposite of what it claimed it would — leaving hungry, angry, disgusted kids and dumpsters full of wasted

Recently elected Democratic Virginia Gov.

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle. Michael Parker and Flora Chang, at Sanford Bernstein, say we entering a new order of "global energy deflation" that must ineluctably erode the viability of oil, gas and the fossil fuel nexus over time.

Nearly a year into the IRS scandal, we still don´t know exactly what happened—though we are finally getting an inkling. That´s thanks to the letter House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp sent this week to the Justice Department recommending a criminal probe of Lois Lerner. The average citizen might be dizzied by the torrent of confusing terms—BOLO lists, Tigta, 501(c)(4)—and the array of accusations that have made up this IRS investigation. Mr. Camp´s letter takes a step back to remind us why this matters, even as it provides compelling new information that goes to motive and method—and clarifies some of

STAMFORD, Conn. — Jeb Bush defended his controversial comments about immigration reform, insisting they were nothing new for him and urging “sensitivity to the immigrant experience.” At a Connecticut Republican party dinner Thursday night, the former Republican governor of Florida did not repeat his remarks from last weekend at his father’s presidential library, when he said that people who come to the United States illegally in search of a better life for their children “broke the law, but it’s not a felony. It’s an act of love.” This time the potential 2016 candidate put it differently. “To be young and

The deportation of foreigners living illegally in the United States is similar to the forced internment of ethnic-Japanese Americans in World War II, according to Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi. “I’ll be very honest with you: Looking at the numbers at some point, in terms of how people are treated and deported and families separated and the rest, this has a scent of Japanese internment,” Pelosi told a Politico reporter. “It’s really a black mark,” said Pelosi. Roughly 110,000 ethnic-Japanese immigrants and their American children were detained during World War II after Japan’s sneak attack on Americans in Pearl Harbor. Pelosi also urged Obama

Under the administration of President Obama, as never before in my lifetime, there is reason to be a bit afraid of the federal government. I have written two books documenting Obama´s abuses of power, his assaults on the Constitution, his wars against business and energy, his abominably reckless spending, his divisiveness, his renegade Justice Department, his regulatory expansion, his executive orders, his overall lawlessness, and more. Obama´s conduct concerning Obamacare alone would be enough to get the impeachment wheels rolling for any other president. His flagrant, deliberate lies regarding almost every aspect of that
