Comments:
This is the guy who did all that sleazy stuff against Marco Rubio, trying to blackmail him into an interview, trying to link his name with drugs, planting a TV van in front of his brother in law´s house to intimidate him. A man so sleazy he appalled the other Univision executives. See here: http://news.investors.com/ibd-editorials/100511-587196-rubio-vs-univision.htm

He weighs 500 pounds.

A history teacher and underground journalist who became a self-taught military leader, General Vo Nguyen Giap died at the 108 Military Hospital in Hanoi on Friday after years in hospital with ill health. The 102-year-old was one of the country´s most revered figures and the last living member of its revolutionary old guard. "He died of old age, not because of any illness," a senior military official at the hospital said, requesting anonymity because the retired general´s death had not been formally announced. "The news about his death will only be made public after the Secretariat of the Communist Party of Vietnam

ROME – A boat carrying nearly 500 Eritrean and Somali migrants capsized early Thursday off the coast of the Italian Mediterranean island of Lampedusa, leaving more than 100 fatalities and 200 missing. Accounts from survivors indicate the migrants fell into the sea when the boat, which departed from Libya’s coast, caught fire and capsized. Some of the victims were trapped under the vessel. Some have suggested the blaze may have been caused by a short-circuit, while others say the immigrants decided to set off a flare to attract passing ships. Footage broadcast on Italian television showed dramatic scenes of body bags piled

Venezuela´s Attorney General Luisa Ortega Díaz said on Thursday that people involved in hoarding of basic staples would face serious sanctions. In the regard, she called on prosecutors to seek their detention. The attorney general called on people to remain calm, not to fall for provocations, and not to be afraid of the "alleged" food shortage. Based on the figures provided by the Central Bank of Venezuela, shortage hit 20% in August; in other words, 20 out 100 items are missing from the shelves. According to a press release, the Attorney General Office has designated an ad hoc group of prosecutors to work

Leadership: Venezuela has expelled three U.S. diplomats in a laughable attempt to divert attention from its economic shambles. It´s a golden opportunity for the U.S. to reassert itself. Unfortunately, our president is clueless. Running out of U.S. diplomats to expel after several rounds, the Venezuelan government kicked out the charge d´affairs and two low level U.S. envoys on rabid accusations of "sabotage" for the "crime" of meeting with ordinary Venezuelans at the offices of Sumate, a clean-election group. It´s the sort of meeting diplomats routinely hold as part of their jobs. "There will be no cordial relations nor cordial communication," Venezuela´s President

It appears that the Obama administration is violating the First Rule of Holes. Yesterday the administration looked awful when it “closed” and barricaded the World War II memorial on the Mall. The memorial is, by its nature, open. There is nothing to close. And the administration knows that every day, tour groups consisting of WWII vets, now mostly in their late 80s or early 90s, come to Washington to visit the memorial. So the administration couldn’t resist closing the WWII memorial by putting up barricades, as part of their effort to dramatize how terrible the government “shutdown” is. Yesterday, as we

“There is nothing left to cut,” said House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi last week when referring to the federal budget. Again, she displayed a complete disconnect with reality — a disconnect reinforced by all those other fantasyland souls who make her their leader. As we listen to the budget battles among the political class over the next few weeks, it is important to keep in mind that federal spending is at record levels in nominal terms and near the all-time high as a percentage of gross domestic product (GDP), except during World War II. During the second Clinton administration, federal spending

Not too far in the future Venezuelans will look back on these days with nostalgia. If Venezuela was an airplane, impending crash signals would be lighting up like a Christmas tree in the cockpit, while back in the cabin, passengers might be ordering a second cocktail to blank out the worrisome bumps they feel. But when the plane crashes, it takes everyone aboard on a trip to hell that they didn´t know they paid for. Here´s a look at the cockpit signals: Oil production has been falling while the much-touted natural gas resources are not being produced at all. Agricultural and

Three Venezuelan ex-diplomats issued a paper warning that "Guyana has granted concessions for oil and gas development in areas located in front of the coast of Delta Amacuro, invading our areas that belong to the delta platform and preventing its access to the free Atlantic." The paper, signed by Luis Herrera Marcano, Ph.D. in law, retired ambassador and ex-member of the taskforce established apropos the Geneva Agreement; Rosario Orellana Yépez, attorney at law and ex-vice minister of Foreign Affairs, and Sadio Garavini di Turno, Ph.D. in Political Sciences and former Venezuelan ambassador to Guyana, is intended to answer this question: Why

Pensions: In Chile, a major study shows the nation´s private retirement accounts provide workers pensions worth 87% of their salaries, 73% of that from profits on savings. So much for the canard about the perils of markets. The story was front-page news in Chile´s largest newspapers, El Mercurio and La Tercera, on Sept. 3, a powerful affirmation of what former Republican presidential candidates Newt Gingrich and Herman Cain called "The Chilean Model" of private retirement accounts. The study of 28,000 households by Dictuc, a consultancy affiliated with the Catholic University of Chile, showed that male workers who contributed just 10% of their

NAIROBI, Kenya — Only days after heavily armed assailants stormed a crowded mall and killed scores of people in the capital, militants killed three people near the border with Somalia, Kenyan officials said Thursday, putting this country even further on edge. According to Kenyan police officials, there were two attacks, the first Wednesday night on a group of police officers on a foot patrol in Wajir in which a bystander was killed. Militants struck again early on Thursday, raiding a police camp in Mandera, killing two police officers and setting fire to a dozen vehicles. The Kenyan authorities immediately blamed the

Eight workers at a Chattanooga, Tenn., Volkswagen plant have alleged that United Auto Workers officials used "misrepresentations, coercion, threats, and promises" in an attempt to organize the plant. In charges filed with the National Labor Relations Board Wednesday, the eight allege that union officials lied to them, claiming that signing union cards did not count as a vote to join. In fact, the cards were presented by the union to the company as proof the workers wanted to organize. The workers further allege that the UAW resisted giving the cards back after they learned of their true purpose. The workers were told

Some Catholic priests under contract or GS (general schedule) to the military are not allowed to offer Mass or perform weddings, baptisms, and other religious functions on military property during the government shutdown, and if they do, even on a volunteer basis, they risk being arrested, according to the general counsel for the Archdiocese for the Military Services, USA. About 25% of the U.S. military is Catholic, some 275,000 service members, but there are only 234-active-duty priests. To fill the gap, contract or GS priests are brought in. But under the rules of the shutdown, many of those priests cannot

National Park Service rangers are being ordered to “make life difficult” during the government shutdown, according to the Washington Times. After the shutdown began, park police have been barring tourists from a number of popular attractions nationwide, including the WWII memorial. Even privately-owned landmarks, such as Mount Vernon, are being told by the National Park Service to close their doors. The Times reported: The Park Service appears to be closing streets on mere whim and caprice. The rangers even closed the parking lot at Mount Vernon, where the plantation home of George Washington is a favorite tourist destination. That was after they barred

Because Barack Obama was elected on a campaign promise of “fundamentally transforming” the United States, and because our nation then proceeded to lose much of its international influence and domestic economic dynamism, it is easy to say “this is intentional. It’s just what he wants.” Yet while Obama might, in his heart of hearts, not bemoan the loss of jobs and economic growth at home, and American power and prestige abroad, ascribing it to an intentional effort gives Obama credit for qualities and skills he does not possess. Neocon David Horowitz entitled a recent fundraising letter for his Freedom Center “Urgent: Is

President Obama’s approval rating has dropped to one of the lowest levels in two years. Since the government shutdown Tuesday, Obama’s approval rating has slipped 3 percentage points to 41 percent, while his disapproval went up to 52 percent, according to Gallup’s daily numbers. Reuters also polled a 41 percent approval rating in the same time period. Rasmussen Reports said he had 46 percent approval, and Fox News recorded it at 45 percent. Gallup hasn´t recorded that low an approval rating for Obama since 2011. The pollster´s surveys in September showed 44 percent approved of the president’s job. The federal

Washington - President Barack Obama says that if he owned the Washington Redskins, he would "think about changing" the team name, wading into the controversy over a football nickname that many people deem offensive to Native Americans. Obama, in an interview with The Associated Press, said team names like the Redskins offend "a sizable group of people." He said that while fans get attached to the nicknames, nostalgia may not be a good enough reason to keep them in place. "I don't know whether our attachment to a particular name should override the real legitimate concerns that people

On Tuesday morning, seven National Park Service employees were seen erecting and tending to a barricade around the World War II memorial in Washington, D.C. One NPS employee was operating a forklift. There usually aren´t any NPS employees working at the World War II memorial. A couple hours later, when an Honor Flight of World War II veterans arrived, accompanied by Democratic and Republican members of Congress, the fences blocking the memorial were easily moved away, allowing the veterans to enter. But the barriers are still at the memorial, and they´ve been reinforced. This morning, I walked by the memorial and noticed

WASHINGTON — Republican efforts to resolve the fiscal standoff that has closed much of the federal government heated up Thursday, the third day of the shutdown, with new talks over a broad budget deal and an effort by more moderate House members to break the logjam. Representative Paul D. Ryan of Wisconsin, chairman of the House Budget Committee, has initiated conversations with senior House Republicans on a broad deficit reduction deal that would allow some increases to federal programs squeezed by the automatic cuts known as sequestration in exchange for long-term changes to programs like Medicare and Social Security.

According to Politico: Ted Cruz faced a barrage of hostile questions Wednesday from angry GOP senators, who lashed the Texas tea party freshman for helping prompt a government shutdown crisis without a strategy to end it. At a closed-door lunch meeting in the Senate’s Mansfield Room, Republican after Republican pressed Cruz to explain how he would propose to end the bitter budget impasse with Democrats, according to senators who attended the meeting. A defensive Cruz had no clear plan to force an end to the shutdown — or explain how he would defund Obamacare, as he has demanded all along, sources said. The

Via William Jacobson, NBC´s affiliate in Washington, D.C. reports that police ordered tourists and Vietnam war veterans who were visiting the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall to leave the memorial at one point on Friday. After one group of veterans went around the barricade, "the park ranger told them the wall was closed," NBC´s Mark Seagraves reported. "Later another group of vets showed up and moved the barricades. At that point, the memorial filled with vets and tourists. That´s when police came and moved everyone out."
