UK sends hand-held helicopter
drones to war zone

Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 2/4/2013 10:45:21 PM

LONDON— British soldiers in Afghanistan have been issued with surveillance drones so small they can fit in the palm of a man´s hand. The Scandinavian-designed Black Hornet Nano weighs as little as 16 grams (roughly half an ounce) — the same as a finch. The 4-inch (10-centimeter) -long helicopter is fitted with a tiny camera which relays still images and video to a remote terminal. "We used it to look for insurgent firing points and check out exposed areas of the ground before crossing, which is a real asset," said Sgt. Christopher Petherbridge, with Britain´s Brigade Reconnaissance Force.

Federal jury convicts former Arkansas treasurer
Associated Press, by Chuck Bartels    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 3/11/2014 10:24:48 PM     Post Reply
LITTLE ROCK, Ark.- A jury convicted former Arkansas Treasurer Martha Shoffner of federal bribery and extortion charges Tuesday, saying her acceptance of $36,000 from a bond trader who did business with the state was a felony rather than just a lapse in ethical judgment. Shoffner wept quietly at the defense table before the jurors, who deliberated for about three hours, returned to the courtroom. But the former Democratic official regained her composure and showed no reaction as U.S. District Judge J. Leon Holmes read the 14 consecutive guilty verdicts. Holmes still must rule on a motion to acquit that was

A federal court has dismissed a civil rights lawsuit filed by The Rutherford Institute on behalf of a decorated Marine veteran from Virginia. U.S District Judge Henry Hudson called Brandon Raub’s assertion that police, the FBI and the Secret Service were involved in suppressing his dissident speech “far-fetched.” In August, 2012 uniformed county police officers showed up at Brandon Raub’s front door. They introduced Raub to several unidentified agents of the Secret Service and FBI who spoke with him concerning his anti-government Facebook posts. A few minutes later, according to the August, 2013 complaint, one of the federal agents telephoned

Attorney General to be Standing Up in Ad

Progress Texas, a liberal group in Texas that supports Democratic candidates, released what appears to be a standard attack ad against Republican gubernatorial candidate Greg Abbott--with one major exception. Abbott is portrayed in the ad standing up holding a piggy bank. Normally, this wouldn´t be a big deal and hardly would merit an article, but Abbott was paralyzed from the waist down in 1984 and uses a wheelchair. He can´t stand up. This is just another odd example of how liberal Texas groups are uncomfortable with Greg Abbott´s disability. There really isn´t any explaining this away, other than it´s truly

A prominent Democrat who illegally funneled $660,000 into the mayoral campaign of Vincent Gray in 2010 also contributed to Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, according to the Washington Times. All three networks on Monday night and Tuesday morning ignored the story. Prosecutors claimed that Mayor Gray had knowledge of the illegal "shadow" campaign run by Jeffrey Thompson. Times writer Dave Boyer explained the connection to other high-profile Democrats: "Despite Hillary Rodham Clinton’s promise that she had scrubbed illegal cash contributions from her 2008 presidential campaign, prosecutors revealed Monday that the mastermind of Mayor Vincent C.

It’s rare in politics that anything other than a presidential contest is viewed as a “must win” — but the special election in Florida’s 13th District falls into that category for Democrats. A loss in the competitive March 11 contest would almost certainly be regarded by dispassionate observers as a sign that President Barack Obama could constitute an albatross around the neck of his party’s nominees in November. And that could make it more difficult for Democratic candidates, campaign committees and interest groups to raise money and energize the grass roots. Fundamentally, the district, left vacant by the death of

The Raminator, a 10,000 pound monster truck, will be crushing cars across the Lone Star State in a month-long celebration of the Ram 1500 being named the official Truck of Texas. This is the Ram´s second year in a row to win the coveted title, which the Texas Auto Writers Association recently awarded during the annual Texas Truck Rodeo in San Antonio. The Raminator started its trip around the state on Monday with the crushing of five cars at Martin Chrysler in Cleveland. Today, a Toyoto Carola and a Chevvy Metro will get flattened at Finnegan´s in Rosenberg. "It´s pretty

New York — US President Barack Obama Tuesday launched a New York shopping spree -- to treat his wife and daughters -- and to praise top clothing retailor Gap Inc. for raising its minimum wage. Obama halted his motorcade at the store at East 42nd and Third Avenue as he hit the Big Apple on a fundraising swing. The president selected sweaters for his daughters Malia and Sasha and a blue workout jacket for his wife Michelle, before delivering a glowing assessment of Gap bosses, who recently decided to hike the store´s minimum wage to $10 dollars.

NEW YORK — Melding 2014 needs with 2016 hopes, President Barack Obama is teaming up with an ally and fundraiser of former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton to help the Democratic Party erase a worrisome debt. Obama was in New York Tuesday to raise money for the Democratic National Committee at a high-dollar fundraiser at the home of Alan Patricof, the founder of a New York venture capital fund. Patricof is a longtime Clinton friend and financial bundler for her Senate and presidential campaigns, and the event aligns the Obama and Clinton orbits as the former first lady considers

It was back on Jan. 27, 1998, that Hillary Clinton first used the phrase “vast right-wing conspiracy” to describe the attacks on her husband. She was appearing with Matt Lauer on NBC’s “Today,” the day after Bill Clinton had publicly stated: “I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky.”For Hillary, the Monica story was the last straw in what she firmly believed was a conservative conspiracy to get her husband. And Hillary stuck to that belief even after she learned the truth about Bill and Monica. After all, one or both of the Clintons had been accused

Former IRS official Louis Lerner and her colleagues at the tax agency were under a tremendous amount of pressure from President Obama and other Democrats to scrutinize a Tea Party applicant for public disclosure, despite rules protecting the privacy of unapproved applications, according to a staff report from the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. For example, in emails how the Supreme Court´s Citizens United decision could imperil the Democrats´ majority in the Senate, Lerner wrote in an email she hoped the Federal Election Commission would “save the day” apparently by curtailing political speech.

The 300,000-member union that was the first to endorse then-Senator Barack Obama has released a devastating Obamacare report that says Obama´s controversial healthcare program will slash worker wages by up to $5 an hour, reduce worker hours, and exacerbate income inequality. The report by Unite Here--a North American labor union that represents workers in the hotel, gaming, food service, manufacturing, textile, distribution, laundry, and airport industries--is titled: "The Irony of ObamaCare: Making Inequality Worse." "Ironically, the Administration´s own signature healthcare victory poses one of the most immediate challenges to redressing inequality," states the 12-page report. "We take seriously the promise

CBS News investigative correspondent Sharyl Attkisson has reached an agreement to resign from CBS News ahead of contract, bringing an end to months of hard-fought negotiations, sources familiar with her departure told POLITICO on Monday. Attkisson, who has been with CBS News for two decades, had grown frustrated with what she saw as the network´s liberal bias, an outsized influence by the network´s corporate partners and a lack of dedication to investigative reporting, several sources said. She increasingly felt like her work was no longer supported and that it was a struggle to get her reporting on air.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) wowed the beltway elite and even Democrats during Saturday´s annual Gridiron event, showing why the Ivy Leaguer has confounded and been vilified by many with whom he shares the same intellectual pedigree. The annual D.C. roast is hosted by the exclusive Gridiron Club, which is composed of D.C.´s mainstream and "elite" journalists. Cruz has degrees from Princeton and Harvard, which those in the permanent political class covet, and he can do their social rituals better than they can. Yet Cruz refuses to be co-opted by them politically, instead choosing to be a staunch conservative who represents

You have probably seen all of the ridiculous speculating about the GOP nomination in 2016. This is still speculating, but my sincere hope is you don’t think it’s ridiculous too. Kentucky Senator Rand Paul is laying the foundation for his presidential bid in concrete and steel. First, forget about Jeb Bush unless you want to hand Hillary eight years in the White House. The latest Rasmussen poll shows her leading Jeb in a general election 47 percent to 33. His name is Bush and to the general public the specifics of how smart he is doesn’t matter one iota. Then there’s Ted Cruz,

Two days after police arrived to subdue the 4-year-old Himalayan cat, owner Lee Palmer of Portland said he´s taking the feline to a veterinarian. A pet psychologist also is due at the house to see the cat, named Lux. "We´re not getting rid of him right now," Palmer said. "He´s been part of our family for a long time."

Beyoncé and Jennifer Garner are among the prominent women taking a stand against the term "bossy" and what it stands for in regards to female empowerment. "Being labeled something matters," Garner, 34, says in a promotional video for the campaign. The effort against discouraging girls from leadership is a joint push from the Girl Scouts of America and the Lifetime network. The PSA also includes participation from Jane Lynch, Condoleezza Rice, Diane von Furstenberg, Secretary of Education Arne Duncan and "Lean In" author Sheryl Sandberg.

Virgin CEO Richard Branson said that those who are skeptical of man-made global warming should “get out of our way,” joining the ranks of CEOs lashing out against those opposed to business investments in “sustainability.” Branson made his remarks in the wake of Apple CEO Tim Cook’s telling global warming skeptics to “get out of this stock” if they did not agree with the company’s green investment strategy. Cook made his comments after being confronted by a free-market activist who pressed him on putting the environment ahead of profitable investments. “If you want me to do things only for [return on investment] reasons,

Former Arkansas governor and 2008 Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee said that donors are rushing him with offers of big-dollar support, clearing away his highest hurdle to entering the 2016 GOP primaries. The biggest difference between 2008 and this year, he said, is that supporters and well-financed contributors are urging him to run and pledging to fund his effort. One of the main reasons why: He has the best knowledge of the Clinton campaign machine, knows Bill and Hillary Clinton and their tactics well, and has run and won against two female candidates. “I certainly know the Clintons; I know
