Assad denies ordering chemical attack
Nation Magazine, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 9/8/2013 10:49:49 PM

Washington - Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad Sunday denied he had anything to do with last month’s chemical weapons attack that killed hundreds of Syrians, but would not confirm or deny his regime has chemical weapons, according to Charlie Rose of CBS, the first American television anchor to interview the Syrian leader. Rose said on Face The Nation news programme that Assad “denied he had anything to do with the attack” and “he denied that he knew in fact” there was a chemical attack. The entire interview will air on Monday evening. The Syrian President reportedly told Rose there is no

Comments:
Assad says he didn´t order the chemical attack. 0bama & Kerry say that he did. Just who is the bigger LIAR, and at this point, "What difference does it make?" [We´ll just have to see whose nose gets longer, ears get bigger, or face falls down further.]

Sorry Obamamedia, but my money for the truthteller is on Assad. Your man in DC has told just a few too many lies, that you refuse to debunk, to be considered credible by any honest standard.

There are too many points in his favor. And now that the rebels have blown their false flag frame up, nobody will believe you without incontrovertible proof.

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,

Kerry-Abbas Visit Canceled
as Mideast Talks Falter

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

U.S. confirms warrantless
searches of Americans

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

The High Court of Australia has given people who do not identify as male or female formal legal recognition. In a historic decision with far-reaching implications for institutions and individuals across the country, the court on Wednesday formally upheld the right of transgender person Norrie to be registered as neither a man nor a woman with the NSW registry of births, deaths and marriages. The decision is recognition by the highest court in the land that 'sex' is not binary - it is not only 'male' or 'female' - and that this should be recognised by the law and in basic legal documents.

Malaysian authorities on Tuesday released their full transcript of the audio communications between Flight 370´s cockpit and air traffic controllers before the plane disappeared March 8. The conversation, heavy with aviation shorthand, is in English with the one Indonesian comment meaning, "Good morning." The conversation, as it was released, between the cockpit and various units of air traffic control, Delivery, Ground, Tower, Approach and Radar, the time the audio was recorded, and what was spoken: Cockpit at 12:25:53: Delivery MAS 370 Good Morning - Delivery at 12:26:02: MAS 370 Standby and Malaysia Six is cleared to Frankfurt

   

 

  


 
Abbas Signs Request To Join UN Agencies

Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas breached the conditions of the peace talks Tuesday by signing a request to join several United Nations (UN) agencies. Abbas obligated himself to refrain from such unilateral moves for international recognition during the course of the peace talks, restarted last July by US Secretary of State John Kerry. (Snip) The move effectively torpedoes the peace talks, which have been stalling of late amid Abbas´s consistent refusal to recognize Israel as the Jewish state. Abbas set conditions on the extension of peace talks, demanding demanded a Jewish construction freeze in Judea, Samaria and

Update: An Army recruit who triggered a military and law enforcement alert is not considered an immediate threat by the FBI - even though the agency said he told friends he planned a "Ft. Hood-inspired jihad" against fellow soldiers" and warned it was "imminent." FoxNews.com reported Monday that the FBI was searching for a recent Army recruit known as "Booker, also known as Mohammad Abdullah Hassan" after obtaining an alert based on FBI intelligence and provided by the agency's Kansas City division. The alert, which the FBI sent to the U.S. Marine Corps, local police departments and other law enforcement agencies, was titled

Corruption Costs Dems
Their Supermajority in Calif.
Real Clear Politics, by Lou Cannon    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 4/1/2014 1:13:08 PM     Post Reply
Two years ago, California Democrats celebrated victory in a decades-long struggle to win a supermajority in the Legislature, where a two-thirds majority is required for any tax increase. It was the latest chapter in a long descent into inconsequence by California Republicans, who hold no statewide offices and party registration of only 29.3 percent of the voters. But corruption has achieved what the Republicans could not. The supermajority is now down the drain as three of the Golden State’s 27 Democratic state senators have within the past two months been convicted or indicted on charges ranging from bribery to gun-running.

Janet Yellen, Chairwoman of the Federal Reserve, surveying the state of the economy, said that even now, almost five years after the official end of the Great Recession, it remains harder for Americans to find jobs than in the midst of a typical downturn. For those who are working, wages are rising more slowly than usual. “There remains no doubt that the economy and the job market are not back to normal health,” Ms. Yellen said. “The recovery still feels like a recession to many Americans and it also looks that way in some economic statistics.” Five years, now, since the “official end” of the recession and longer than that, of course,

It’s junior year and Paul Ryan
has to pick a major
Washington Post, by Chris Cillizza    Original Article

There are two very clear and very different political paths before Paul Ryan right now. 1. Down this path lies a presidential bid in 2016, a race in which the Wisconsin Republican would enter as a top-tier candidate if not, perhaps, the race´s frontrunner. 2. Down this path lies the chairmanship of the Ways and Means Committee in the 114th Congress and, eventually, a chance to be the Speaker/House Minority Leader. (Snip) But, in conversations with a variety of current and former Republican Capitol Hill aides, there´s little doubt that the Wisconsin Republican is the clear frontrunner to take the gavel in 2015 if he wants it.

Tiger Woods announced Tuesday that he will not play in this year´s Masters Tournament due to a recent surgery to alleviate a pinched nerve in his back. "After attempting to get ready for the Masters, and failing to make the necessary progress, I decided, in consultation with my doctors, to have his procedure done," Woods announced on his website. Woods had surgery on Monday in Park City, Utah and called the procedure a success. He will begin intensive rehabilitation and treatment and doctors estimate he will be able to play again in about three weeks. The Masters begins next week.

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia - It may mean little to investigators that the last words air traffic controllers heard from the lost jetliner were "Good night, Malaysian three-seven-zero," rather than "All right, good night." But to Malaysian officials whose credibility has been questioned almost from the beginning, it means a great deal. Malaysian officials said more than two weeks ago that "All right, good night," were the last words, and that the co-pilot uttered them. They changed the account late Monday and said they are still investigating who it was that spoke. The discrepancy added to the confusion and frustration families

In a meeting with the heads of the five service branches in 2010, President Obama offered the leaders a choice: Support my efforts to end the military’s Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy, or resign.

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.

Obamacare, the plan purportedly created to provide health coverage for the uninsured, has enrolled just 1.7% of America´s 48.6 million uninsured. News of the disastrous numbers comes as nervous Democrats and President Barack Obama, ahead of the November midterm elections, did their best on Monday´s enrollment deadline to put a positive spin on the deeply unpopular Obamacare program. (Snip) The White House now claims an Obamacare enrollment figure of six million people. However, according to The New York Times, at least 20% of those never paid their premiums to activate coverage, leaving them uninsured.

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,

Washington — The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration on Monday finalized long-delayed rules that will require automakers to install back-up cameras in all vehicles by May 2018. The new rules set rear visibility standards that automakers will initially be able to meet only by installing cameras. At the same time, major automakers said Monday they are petitioning the Obama administration to let them end the use of side view mirrors if they install cameras that could perform the same task — a move that could improve fuel efficiency.

A RAND study pours buckets of cold water on the Obama administration’s claims that it has nearly reached 7 million sign-ups for Obamacare. The whole point of Obamacare, supposedly, was to insure the uninsured and bend the cost curve down. Those who had insurance were supposed to be able to keep it. Families were supposed to start saving about $2500 a year. If you believed the Obama administration. Reality, according to RAND‘s study, is that the Obama administration’s 7 million figure is deceptive. Supposing 7 million have actually signed up and paid their first premium — which is not a given,

Drinking Earl Grey tea could help guard against heart disease, it has emerged, after a study found that bergamot extract--a key ingredient in the hot drink--is just as effective as statins at controlling cholesterol. Scientists believe bergamot, a fragrant Mediterranean citrus fruit which gives Earl Grey tea its distinctive flavour, can significantly lower cholesterol. They say it contains enzymes known as HMGF (hydroxy methyl glutaryl flavonones) which can attack proteins in the body known to cause heart disease. The study found bergamot could even be as effective as statins, used to control cholesterol but which can have side effects in

Spanish historians say they have discovered what Monty Python could not – the Holy Grail, the legendary cup Jesus supposedly drank from at the Last Supper. The Spaniards – Margarita Torres and José Ortega del Río – believe the 2,000-year-old vessel is in a church in León in northern Spain. The pair spent three years studying the history of the chalice and last week published a book, “The Kings of the Grail,” making their case. The onyx chalice, they explained, was concealed within another antique vessel known as the Chalice of Doña Urruca, which is located in León’s basilica of
