Large arms shipment intercepted
off Yemen, Iran eyed as source

Reuters, by Phil Stewart

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 1/28/2013 11:18:22 PM

Washington - Yemeni forces intercepted a ship on January 23 carrying a large cache of weapons - including surface-to-air missiles - that U.S. officials suspect were being smuggled from Iran and destined for Yemeni insurgents, officials said on Monday. Yemen´s government said the arms intercepted aboard the ship off the country´s coast also included military grade explosives, rocket-propelled grenades and bomb-making equipment, (Snip) A second official told Reuters the intercepted shipment was believed to have been from Iran and destined for insurgents, likely Houthis.

Comments:
Inquiring minds want to know if this is the "man-pads" that SOS Clinton was speaking of that Ambassador Stevens was trying to remove from Libya? What is the "nationality" of the weapons? Will we ever know?

Any ship leaving an Iranian port should be sunk immediately. No questions asked.

Yemen is more engaged in counter terrorism than the US is.Obama´s probably seething these weapons were intercepted and ordered another shipment.

Tow it back to Iran´s biggest port and sink it right there after putting huge triggers inside to blow it up a few days later.

I am afraid taking the advice of 1 and 6 would make us an international pariah and in addition trigger war by Iran against Israel and the US with us being hard pressed to find allies who would overlook our actions in sinking "every ship that leaves an Iranian port, no questions asked". or he ship into an Iranian port" and leaving a timing device onboard to blow up later.

So administration officials tell Reuters that the weapons were from Iran. Why am I suspicious? Sort of like Rush Limbaugh tells Fox News the weapons were from Libya.

As GWB once said, "you´re either with us or you´re with the terrorists." It was good to have a real president once upon a time.

Iran was supplying weapons and personnel to Iraq ten years ago to be used against us. It´s not like this act of war is their first. I would rather make them pay the price and be an international pariah than the laughingstock of the world like we are now. Iran has a lot to answer for but as long as Valerie Jarret is running the show, they will continue to get away with murder.

Test accurately rules out
heart attacks in the ER
Associated Press, by Marilynn Marchione    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 3/30/2014 3:59:25 PM     Post Reply
Washington - A simple test appears very good at ruling out heart attacks in people who go to emergency rooms with chest pain, a big public health issue and a huge worry for patients. A large study in Sweden found that the blood test plus the usual electrocardiogram of the heartbeat were 99 percent accurate at showing which patients could safely be sent home rather than be admitted for observation and more diagnostics. Of nearly 9,000 patients judged low risk by the blood test and with normal electrocardiograms, only 15 went on to suffer a heart attack in the next month, and not a single one died.

´Noah´ sails to estimated

Director Darren Aronofsky´s biblical epic “Noah” sailed at the weekend box office as the film opened at No. 1 with an estimated $44 million in ticket sales. The film, which cost about $130 million to make, solidly met expectations, according to Paramount Pictures, which had initially forecast a $30-million opening weekend. "Noah" already has generated about $95 million overseas. “It was a fantastic result,” said Megan Colligan, Paramount’s president of domestic marketing and distribution. “I think the movie really surprises people and makes them want to talk about it.” “Noah” brought in a diverse crowd, Colligan said, a 50-50 split

Cincinnati - Pivotal swing states under Republican control are embracing significant new electoral restrictions on registering and voting that go beyond the voter identification requirements that have caused fierce partisan brawls. The bills, laws and administrative rules — some of them tried before — shake up fundamental components of state election systems, including the days and times polls are open and the locations where people vote. (Snip) Democrats in North Carolina are scrambling to fight back against the nation’s most restrictive voting laws, passed by Republicans there last year.

Friendly fire: Navy seeks ´dummy´
training missiles to shoot at pilots
Fox News, by Robert Gearty    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 3/30/2014 2:02:03 PM     Post Reply
The Navy is considering a novel way to protect its fighter pilots: firing live shoulder-launched surface-to-air missiles at them to train them in evasive action and test aircraft missile warning systems. The shoulder-fired missiles in the hands of terrorists, criminal and enemy fighters pose a worldwide problem. Insurgents in Iraq during the war posted YouTube videos showing their deadly ability with the weapons against U.S. military helicopters. The Navy disclosed its intentions earlier this month in a little-noticed request for information. The request asks defense contractors if they can build a “missile surrogate” that would replicate the missile,

Duty to his country called U.S. Army Specialist Ricky Glenn Henderson to Afghanistan. Now duty to his family is calling him back to Texas, where he hopes to donate a majority of his liver to his dying Vietnam Vet grandfather. Henderson flew back from Afghanistan last week determined to give the gift of life to his very sick 62-year-old- grandfather, Rickey Homer. "The loss and the regret of me not doing anything would have outweighed this. I´m the firstborn grandson; I carry my grandfather´s name," Henderson told KLTV, the ABC affiliate in East Texas.

Weiner Meets His Muse

Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 3/30/2014 1:17:47 PM     Post Reply
His promising career in politics having come to an inglorious – and no doubt temporary – end, Anthony Weiner has turned to punditry. In his first column for Business Insider, his subject is the controversy over the Tesla automobile and the campaign by its maker to sell directly to the consumer rather than through dealers as required by myriad state laws. This passage is a fair example of his prose style: Coverage of this fight in the tech press seems to have toed the Tesla line that these regulations are a roadblock to innovation designed to protect entrenched interests and reward the car dealers’ lobby for the cash they’ve thrown around over the years.

A leading healthcare expert poured cold water on the administration’s recent Obamacare enthusiasm, saying that three quarters of those signed up will face higher premiums than under their previous insurance. “Out of people that have signed up about three quarters will find premiums higher than previously with other insurance,” Dr. Toby Cosgrove, CEO of the Cleveland Clinic said on Fox News Sunday. “Hospitals are going to be paid less for what they do,” Cosgrove continued. “And we also know insurers are paying less too. We have to become more efficient in how we deliver care which is a big changefor health care providers.”

A Democratic state senator investigating the George Washington Bridge controversy insisted Sunday that she was willing to accept New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s (R) side of the story, but also urged the governor to sit for an interview with her panel. Loretta Weinberg, the co-chairwoman of a committee investigating lane closures on the bridge, said that the panel had not gained access to all the documents it needs, nor had it been able to interview all the key figures in the controversy. “I’m willing to accept Gov. Christie’s side of the story all the way along,” Weinberg said on NBC's "Meet the Press." Weinberg also slammed

Kiev, Ukraine - The first crack of a sniper’s round in Kiev’s Independence Square came shortly after nine o’clock on the morning of February 20 and the last about seven hours later at around four o’clock in the afternoon drawing to a close the bloodiest day in what had been a months-long struggle to oust Ukraine President Viktor Yanukovych. Many of the 53 people slain died from clean shots to the head or neck—telltale wounds inflicted by expert marksmen; while others were gunned down at closer quarters by less expert assassins armed with AK-47 assault rifles. Most of the photographs accompanying this article were taken on February 20,

Beijing - Chinese authorities have seized assets worth at least 90 billion yuan ($14.5 billion) from family members and associates of retired domestic security tsar Zhou Yongkang, who is at the center of China´s biggest corruption scandal in more than six decades, two sources said. More than 300 of Zhou´s relatives, political allies, proteges and staff have also been taken into custody or questioned in the past four months, the sources, who have been briefed on the investigation, told Reuters. The sheer size of the asset seizures and the scale of the investigations into the people around Zhou - unreported until now - make the corruption probe

After a stoush with Interpol over its screening of airline passengers, Malaysia will introduce stricter security checks in the wake of the Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 disaster. But they will not come into force until June. It comes as authorities said the FBI had so far found "nothing sinister" after examining the flight simulator that the captain of the missing Malaysia Airlines passenger jet kept in his home. (Snip) Spy agencies MI6 as well as the CIA are also helping the Malaysian authorities, which has addded to speculation the aircraft was hijacked by terrorists.

After a disastrous presidential campaign in 2012, can Texas Governor Rick Perry mount a credible bid for the White House in 2016? Texas Governor Rick Perry is currently on a media tour touting the theme that America is a great place for second chances, specifically second chances for Texas governors with national ambitions. Perry is trying to erase the memory of his disastrous 2012 GOP presidential campaign which included “brain-farts” and “oops” debate moments with his folksy, charming, and uniquely American manner. Curious about Perry’s comeback strategy, I asked Texan and GOP presidential media guru, Mark McKinnon and he said,

A startling rift appeared Tuesday on the Supreme Court as the three female Justices came out swinging like Brunnhildes — women warriors — for what they erroneously labeled an “entitlement” to employer-provided contraceptives and morning-after pills. The Justices were hearing oral arguments in Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc., a case hyped by the Democratic Party as a test for women’s rights. Justices Kagan, Ginsberg, and Sotomayor sprang on Hobby Lobby’s attorney , interrupting his every sentence and pummeling him with questions taken right out of the Democratic Party’s “war on women” playbook.

Las Vegas - Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft former Florida governor Jeb Bush into the 2016 presidential race, courting him and his intimates and starting talks on fundraising strategy.

Rand Paul (Ky.), prominent donors, conservative leaders and longtime operatives say they consider Bush the GOP’s brightest hope to win back the White House.

The past couple of weeks have marked a turning point in American ugliness as the mob has turned its full fury on first lady Michelle Obama. From criticism of her trip to China to a recent “tell-all” by former White House assistant press secretary Reid Cherlin in the New Republic about Obama’s allegedly tyrannical behavior, the gloves have been removed. As described, she was a perfectionist — super-attentive to detail and laser-focused on advance planning. And this is bad because? Worse, according to a former (anonymous) staffer, there was no barometer for meeting Obama’s high standards. “The first lady having

Where’s the beef? That’s what the carnivores were wondering as they arrived at the Boathouse in Central Park for the “Noah” party. The buffet tables were loaded with various forms of edible vegetable matter, but there was no meat, fish or cheese — because director Darren Aronofsky is vegan, as was the hero of his biblical epic, as played by Russell Crowe. To underscore the point in the movie, which also stars Emma Watson and Jennifer Connelly, villain Tubal-cain (Ray Winstone) eagerly bites the head off an unidentified reptile and devours it raw. Meat = evil. Got it. As hungry Boathouse guests bellied

If Betsey McCaughey is correct (and I bet she is, because she has not only read the entire ObamaCare bill, she has written a book about it), Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan publicly humiliated herself during the oral arguments on the Hobby Lobby case, revealing that she either did not read the law, or failed to comprehend it if she did so. Writing in the New York Sun, McCaughey lays out what is wrong with the Justice’s declaration about Obamacare: she asserted that the statute itself mandates provision of birth control. Not one word in the Affordable Care Act guarantees health plans will cover birth control products.

Obamacare supporters are taking a bit of a victory lap today after yesterday’s administration announcement that six million people have signed up for private plans under the law, equaling the revised projection put out by the Congressional Budget Office after the botched launch of the exchanges last October. It’s a weak cause for celebration, given that success, according to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, was originally "at least" seven million people getting covered under the law by the end of March. And as an Obamacare factoid, the six million sign-ups figure just doesn’t tell us all that much

Only "mere scraps of data documented" Barack Obama´s mother´s "days in Seattle," writes Obama biographer David Maraniss in his 2012 Barack Obama: The Story. Incidentally, Maraniss was telling the truth: Ann´s "days in Seattle" weren´t mentioned in Dreams from my Father and were only vaguely implied in Maraniss´s lengthy 2008 article. And it appears that the only "scraps" of evidence of Obama´s mother´s time in Seattle during 1961-1962 was a listing in a Seattle Polk directory and a University of Washington (UW) transcript.
