Venezuela: Chavez very
delicate with new infection

Associated Press, by Staff

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 3/4/2013 11:15:16 PM

Caracas, Venezuela - A new and severe respiratory infection has put cancer-stricken President Hugo Chavez in a "very delicate" state, and his breathing has deteriorated, Venezuela´s communications minister announced Monday. Communications Minister Ernesto Villegas made the announcement late Monday in a statement he read on national television, looking serious but not somber. He said Chavez´s "worsening respiratory function" was related to a weakening of Chavez´s immune system related to "a new and severe respiratory infection." Villegas said Chavez was "standing by Christ and life

Comments:
I guess "somber" is akin to "critical," but not "grave," yet.

"He´s dead, Jim."

OP, Too funny.

It´s high-time this Marist destroyer ´slipped the surely bonds of earth´ to the benefit of all, but especially his countrymen.

In Dante´s 8th circle of Hell, Corrupt politicians (barrators) are immersed in a lake of boiling pitch, which represents the sticky fingers and dark secrets of their corrupt deals. Such everlasting torment would be fitting for Chavez since Venezuela´s high sulfur content crude oil is ideal for pitch.

FTA: Villegas said Chavez was "standing by Christ and life conscious of the difficulties he faces." Not trying to be judgmental, but in my wildest dreams, I could not see using ´Chavez´ and ´Christ´ in the same sentence. It sounds to me like he may be close to buying the farm if he hasn´t already.

Jerusalem - Israel´s chief negotiator with the Palestinians says it will not release the fourth batch of Palestinian prisoners because of the Palestinians´ push for recognition at the United Nations. Tzipi Livni´s spokeswoman said Thursday that the Israeli government was working to finalize an agreement to free the prisoners when Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas signed letters of accessions to 15 international conventions. Abbas said it was a response to Israel´s failure to release prisoners as promised. Livni said the prisoner release was contingent on the Palestinians refraining from making unilateral moves. Livni said that "new conditions were

West Town - The off-duty TSA worker who jumped onto the Blue Line tracks to halt an oncoming train Wednesday and save a woman said he wasn´t trying to be a hero, he just knew he had to help. "We´re good in America, but we still need each other. That´s all I can say," Eddie Palacios, 50, told DNAinfo Chicago. "I hope one day if I need something, my kids need something, somebody else needs something, somebody will be there. That´s what I hope and pray for."

Officials at the University of Connecticut warned students and faculty to take shelter on Thursday, after someone called in a bomb threat, according to a school alert. All students and staff inside the Tasker Building — where the school’s admissions offices are held — were told to take shelter in place after the threat was called in about 9:30 a.m., officials said. Everyone inside the building was told to stay in place and not flee through the school’s alert system. Officials ordered all others to stay away from the structure as response teams investigate the threat.

Sarah Palin: Paul Ryan’s budget
is ‘definition of insanity’
Washington Times, by Jessica Chasmar    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 4/2/2014 9:17:55 PM     Post Reply
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin blasted Republican Rep. Paul Ryan in a Facebook post Tuesday, calling his budget proposal “the definition of insanity.” “Holy Moly! Are you kidding?” Mrs. Palin wrote. “The latest Ryan (R, Wisconsin) Budget is not an April Fool’s joke. But it really IS a joke because it is STILL not seeing the problem; it Still is not proposing reining in wasteful government overspending.” The former vice presidential candidate linked to an article by Breitbart News, which says Mr. Ryan’s budget would increase spending in 2015 and 2016 but would balance the budget within 10 years.

Houston - A federal appeals court on Wednesday threw out a ruling requiring the Texas prison system to disclose more information about where it gets lethal-injection drugs, reversing a judge who had halted an upcoming execution. Only hours before the appellate decision, a lower-court judge issued a temporary injunction halting the execution of Tommy Lynn Sells, a convicted serial killer who was set to die Thursday. The case originally included Ramiro Hernandez-Llanas, another inmate scheduled to be put to death next week. But the appellate ruling affected only Sells. The appeals court said it would take up Hernandez-Llanas´ case at

We have reports of an active shooter on Fort Hood. We have reports that there are several injuries from this shooting. There is at least one patient being transported to the hospital. We are also getting reports of victims in the Battle Simulation Center on 65th and Warehouse. The suspect is still at large. The shooter was said to be in building 33026 which is the Medical Brigade Building. Reports have said that he was driving a gray Toyota, described as a white male in an Army Combat Uniform, and carrying a .45 handgun. Fort Hood has been put on lockdown. Central Texas College has been evacuated only as a precaution.

On Wednesday, the Supreme Court released another ruling on campaign donations. Naturally, those who fundraise off the idea that donating to campaigns equals more free speech for the wealthy were apoplectic. So, for those screaming about “bribery” and “money in politics,” here’s a simple breakdown of the decision: 1. You can now donate to as many candidates, committees and PACs as you want. 2. You can still only donate $2,600 to each candidate. The decision struck down the limits on total campaign donations - currently set at $74,600 for committees and PACs and a separate $48,600 cap on direct candidate

Jeb, Hillary and the curse
of tarnished political brands
Los Angeles Times, by Jonah Goldberg    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 4/1/2014 11:11:16 PM     Post Reply
Some Republican fat cats are trying to coax former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush — brother and son to two former presidents — into making a bid for the White House. Democrats have been less subtle. They´ve created a "super PAC" called Ready for Hillary, which is only slightly less obvious a gesture than constructing a giant neon sign reading "Run, Hillary, Run." (Snip) It sometimes sounds like we´re discussing lines of European nobility swapping out turns on the throne. But in America, where leaders have to run for office, a more useful way to think about dynasties might be to think of them as brand names. In chaotic and confusing marketplaces,

Jerusalem - The Middle East peace talks verged on a breakdown Tuesday night, after President Mahmoud Abbas of the Palestinian Authority defied the United States and Israel by taking concrete steps to join 15 international agencies — a move to gain the benefits of statehood outside the negotiations process. The move, which appeared to catch American and Israeli officials by surprise, prompted Secretary of State John Kerry to cancel a planned return to the region on Wednesday, in which he had expected to complete an agreement extending negotiations through 2015. In that emerging deal, the United States would release an American

The Obama administration has conducted warrantless searches of Americans´ communications as part of the National Security Agency´s surveillance operations that target foreigners located outside of the U.S., the administration´s top intelligence official confirmed in a letter to Congress disclosed Tuesday. These searches were authorized by a secret surveillance court in 2011, but it was unclear until Tuesday whether any such searches on Americans had been conducted. The recent acknowledgement of warrantless searches on Americans offers more insight into U.S. government surveillance operations put in place after the terror attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. The government has broadly interpreted these laws to allow for the

Before getting to the speech itself, it’s worth noting a few things. When the Democrats passed and Barack Obama signed Obamacare, the majority opposed it. About 56%, in fact. A majority have consistently opposed that law ever since. The Obama administration touted 7 million sign-ups by March 31 as “success.” When that goal appeared to be unreachable, the administration suggested that maybe 5 or 6 million would be enough. Now, as if by magic, they have their number. Somehow. All along, the administration has touted false numbers of enrollees. All along, the administration has neglected to admit that Obamacare is

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – President Obama compared the Republican budget plan to a "stinkburger" or "meanwich" during a speech here Wednesday, using a series of zingers in an attempt to strike a contrast with the GOP on economic issues in an election year. In a speech to an enthusiastic crowd of 1,400 at the University of Michigan, Obama repeatedly mocked Republican ideas about how to improve the economy, as he touted his own proposal to raise the minimum wage. Obama, who visited the local Zingerman´s deli before the speech, said that Republican proposals to cut taxes for wealthier Americans and

A few months back, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius stated for the record that 7 million Obamacare sign-ups by the end of March would constitute success. She was clear about it. But then February came, and February always stinks. It’s just a lousy month. You’re tired of winter, you’re still miles away from spring, and no one was signing up for Obamacare. That 7 million figure looked totally unreachable. So Sebelius does what every other member of the Obama administration does when confronted with inconvenient facts. She lied.

The North Carolina State Board of Elections has found thousands of instances of voter fraud in the state, thanks to a 28-state crosscheck of voter rolls. Initial findings suggest widespread election fraud. 765 voters with an exact match of first and last name, DOB and last four digits of SSN were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in N.C. and the other state in the 2012 general election. 35,750 voters with the same first and last name and DOB were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in both states in the 2012 general election. 155,692 voters

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better.´ But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged Rose Garden appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night. Others were already insured, including millions who lost coverage when their existing policies were suddenly

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, criticized last year by a Vatican official for her support of abortion, received a rosary Tuesday from President Obama that was blessed by Pope Francis. Mrs. Pelosi told reporters of the president’s gift after having lunch with Mr. Obama at the White House. The president met with the pope last week at the Vatican. “I was happy to receive a rosary blessed by Pope Francis,” she said. “It means a great deal to me.” Last year, a Vatican official in Rome said that Mrs. Pelosi should be denied communion. “This is a person who obstinately,

Big changes could be just down the road for North Carolina drivers. A proposal is in the works that would change the state tax system to charge drivers by the mile, instead of at the gas pump.The proposal would be to charge a half cent per mile for cars, which would generate almost $500 million in annual state revenue. A driver who travelled 15,000 miles in a year would pay about $75. "Basically you pay per the mile.

With Chris Christie in deep trouble, Republican poobahs are reportedly looking to Jeb Bush to save their party in 2016. The former two-term governor of Florida speaks fluent Spanish, is a convert to Catholicism, and has high name recognition. Jeb could raise millions of dollars over night by just saying “yes” to running. Despite all this, there are strong reasons Republicans should say no to him. 1. His last name is poison. Let’s face it, if Jeb Bush had the last name of Something Else he would have already run for president in 2008 or 2012. According to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll registered voters were asked if they would definitely NOT vote for Jeb Bush and 50 percent said they would not.

"As the Navy considers banning tobacco sales on all bases and ships, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel gave a strong endorsement of the review Monday, and suggested that he would be in favor of a ban," reports Stars and Stripes. “I don’t know if there’s anybody in America who still thinks that tobacco is good for you,” Stars and Stripes quotes Hagel as saying. “We don’t allow smoking in any of our government buildings.

Sarah Palin continues to act in ways that confirm some of the more negative things said about her. For example, she’s taken to Facebook to attack the most recent budget plan by House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan.(Snip)Whatever differences Ms. Palin may have with the Ryan plan–and perhaps she’ll take the time to offer an actual critique of if rather than a Facebook entry with lots of upper case words–it’s hardly a joke.
