WASHINGTON — An unarmed American military surveillance drone now flies virtually every day over Benghazi, gathering information and poised to respond at a moment’s notice if any of the suspects believed to be behind the attacks last Sept. 11 on the American Mission in the Libyan city are located.But three months after the assault that killed Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and three other Americans, the investigation into the attacks has been hobbled by the reluctance of the Libyan authorities

Post Benghazi Obama bravado on display. What good is an "unarmed drone" and how does it "respond at a moment´s notice" without weapons. "Hey, Omar, smile, your on camera."

If the NY Times was an actual news source, it would be writing about how Obama, Hilary and their ilk are impeding the investigation.

Ravaged by drugs: Shocking before

Daily Mail (UK), by Kate Lyons    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 3/26/2014 12:30:40 PM     Post Reply
The horrific effect that drugs can have on addicts have been highlighted in a series of disturbing pictures and video. The photographs show American users of cocaine, heroin, oxy-codone and crystal meth in various stages of addiction. The before shots all show healthy-looking individuals prior to their becoming involved in substance abuse. The after shots show the same faces with terrible, blotchy skin, gaunt and hardened features, wrinkled skin and wild eyes. The campaign was launched by Rehabs.com, the organisation that ran the very successful Faces Of Meth campaign in 2012, which showed the devastating impact of meth addiction.

Here Are All the Times the White House
Said Latest Obamacare Delay Wouldn’t Happen
Mediaite, by Noah Rothman    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 3/26/2014 11:52:04 AM     Post Reply
Late on Tuesday night, the White House “decided to give extra time” to prospective Affordable Care Act enrollees. At least, that’s how The Washington Post put it, though it is unlikely that the changes they made to the ACA’s online infrastructure was the result of a spur–of–the–moment decision. Administration officials maintain that they are simply giving consumers who may be interested in insurance, but have not yet selected or paid for coverage, an extra two weeks to complete the arduous enrollment process. They add that this extension is only available to those who have begun the process of enrollment by March

When things go wrong live on air, they call it “car crash TV”, which is a pretty good description of how it feels to those in the driving seat. Terrifying, yet slow-moving enough for you to contemplate the tragic irony just before hitting the lamppost. This week I appeared on a BBC3 show called Free Speech, a show made “for young people by young people” and presented by a young person in trainers. I surveyed the list of panellists to see who was on to play the crazy Right-winger – and realised, by deduction, that it was me. My fellow

Rupert Murdoch has elevated son Lachlan to the top of his multi-billion dollar family media empire after a seven-year break, appointing him non-executive co-chairman of both News Corp and 21st Century Fox Inc. The media mogul also gave his younger son James a bigger role as co-chief operating officer at 21st Century Fox, two years after he resigned as chairman of British broadcaster BSkyB following a parliamentary investigation into phone hacking. Lachlan Murdoch, who has been serving as a director at News Corp and 21st Century Fox, will work closely with senior management to develop global strategies and guide the

TLAJOMULCO, Mexico — The United States calls Hugo Cuéllar Hurtado a longtime trafficker of the cocaine coming from South America, working with one of the men believed to command Mexico’s biggest drug cartel now that its leader, Joaquín Guzmán Loera, has been captured. But while Mr. Guzmán — known as El Chapo, or Shorty — spent 13 years on the run, sometimes even escaping through underground tunnels dug under bathrooms, Mr. Cuéllar walks freely around Guadalajara, attending luncheons and chatting up diplomats. He says he even won a government grant for an ostrich farm he runs here. “Let them come and investigate

How to thwart a gunman at 29,000 feet,

With the world’s attention focused on Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, a retired El Al pilot, a veteran of five armed hijacking attempts and plots, including one movie-worthy standoff at 29,000 feet, splashed some local brandy into his afternoon tea. “When you don’t know, you just don’t know,” Uri Bar-Lev said of the fate of the airliner, speaking two weeks after it dropped off the radar. Then, while he was folding the Hebrew paper, which was splayed open to the MH370 story of the day, came an endearingly familiar routine, the ritual dance performed by so many Israelis of Bar-Lev’s 1948

The terrifying clown, who resembles the character Pennywise from Stephen King’s horror novel “It,” made headlines in the local paper and even caused local politicians like Congressman Michael Grimm and Borough President James Oddo to get involved. “That’s a clown question, bro,” tweeted Oddo when asked by reporters about the clown.

Ezra Klein, Bill Donohue, and Alec Baldwin. Three very different men, who are in fact raising a very important question. Is this still America? Recent stories involving all three men (and the Klein story has been discussed here by Robert Stacy McCain) are classics of the old Communist thought-reform method of operation. Let’s begin with Ezra Klein, the one-time Washington Post whiz kid turned digital-media mogul. Klein, you see, hired one Brandon Ambrosino to work for his new Internet site Vox. Mr. Ambrosino is a gay man who is not reluctant to criticize gay elites (read: liberals who happen to be

Helmet camera shows skydiver´s remarkable

New York Daily News, by Rocco Parascandola , Shayna Jacobs ,*    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 3/25/2014 8:00:41 AM     Post Reply
It’s 1 World Trade Center like it’s never been seen before — through a helmet camera worn by one of three skydivers who jumped from the top of the skyscraper in September. The footage, posted to YouTube, is breathtaking — and maybe even a little too much to handle if one is afraid of heights. The skydiver, former WTC ironworker James Brady, first waits for one of his high-flying companions to jump. Then he too plummets toward the street, and the camera provides a remarkable perspective of the 1,776-foot-tall tower and the city lights. The daredevil then pulls the cord

Casino magnate Sheldon Adelson, who along with his wife plowed more than $92 million into efforts to help mostly losing candidates in the 2012 elections, is undertaking a new strategy for 2016 — to tap his fortune on behalf of a more mainstream Republican with a clear shot to win the White House, according to people familiar with his thinking. In 2012, Sheldon and Miriam Adelson spent so much of their money on long-shot candidate Newt Gingrich that they helped extend an ugly intra-party fight that left the eventual nominee, Mitt Romney, severely bruised by the time he faced President Obama

GOP finds unwinding Obamacare

Republicans are still determined to repeal Obamacare, even though they have famously failed to unite behind an alternative. Now, it is dawning on some in the GOP that even if they succeed in repealing the Affordable Care Act, and even if they pass an alternative, they will still have to come up with a plan to get from here to there. Right now, they don´t have one. What is different about Republican calls for repeal today -- as opposed to calls for repeal from 2010 to the end of 2013 -- is that Obamacare is now in place. It exists. Exchanges

If Harry Reid isn’t the most despicable politician ever he’s right up there in the top five. He actually blamed Republicans for Russia invading Ukraine and annexing Crimea. He says it’s their fault because they held up a bill providing aid to Ukraine, but failed to mention that the bill they blocked would have given Russia more control over the International Monetary Fund. He also failed to mention that even if his bill passed in the Senate the House wouldn’t have been able to vote on it before Russia took action, so he’s basically just full of crap, as usual.Outlining

Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld has said that ´a trained ape´ could do a better job managing American interests in Afghanistan than President Obama. The retired Republican made the insult while doing a phone-in interview for Greta Van Susteren´s Fox News show on Tuesday. He argued that the President made a serious error by failing to negotiate a status forces agreement with Afghan President Hamid Karzai. Gawker points out that such an agreement would effectively commit the United States to having a certain number of troops in the country for a number of years beyond the already-agreed-upon plan which

Three Secret Service agents responsible for protecting President Obama in Amsterdam this week were sent home and put on administrative leave Sunday after going out for a night of drinking, according to three people familiar with the incident. One of them was found drunk and passed out in a hotel hallway, the people said. The hotel staff alerted the U.S. Embassy in the Netherlands after finding the unconscious agent Sunday morning, a day before Obama arrived in the country, according to two of the people. The embassy then alerted Secret Service managers on the presidential trip, which included Secret Service

A pair of potentially catastrophic cases will be argued before the Supreme Court on Tuesday. These cases are brought by privately held, for-profit corporations that are arguing their religious convictions should preclude them from offering employees the health insurance required by law. Specifically, these private employers don’t want to allow their employees’ insurance to cover some forms of birth control because, contrary to medicaland scientific evidence, they believe some birth control causes abortions. Corporations are not people. Corporations cannot have religious views. If religious rights are extended to corporations, it puts us on a slippery slope where any private company

Former President Jimmy Carter is back in the news this week publicizing a new book about women’s rights. But, as is often the case with Carter, he drew more interest for comments he made about Israel and its supporters. When asked on NBC’s Meet the Press yesterday by Andrea Mitchell why it was that Barack Obama never called upon him for advice, he made it clear that the Jewish state was the reason he has been treated like a pariah: I—that’s a hard question– for me to answer—you know, with complete candor.

Media Matters, the website of choice for Fox News haters everywhere, attacked the cable news network on Monday for using the term “homosexual” in its programming — advancing the peculiar argument that the scientific term has a “pejorative connotation.” The online “media watchdog” contends that calling gay people “homosexual” is “a practice that’s quickly falling out of favor with major news outlets due the term’s often pejorative connotation and frequent use by opponents of LGBT equality.” Fox News, they chide, “has yet to update its language when referring to gay and lesbian people.” Buttressing their argument?

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
