We are full up, fed up and
we can´t take it any more

Daily Express [UK], by Patrick O´Flynn

Full up and fed up. That is the phrase we used to kick off our crusade to persuade the Government to keep in place controls on immigration from Romania and Bulgaria. In fact the term "persuade" is something of a euphemism here. What I really mean is use the sheer weight of public opinion to force the political elite to capitulate to the will of the British people. Already, in the week we have been campaigning on this issue, more than 80,000 of you have filled in our campaign coupon and sent it in either by post or online. It

Comments:
If only we had a newspaper in the US that would take up this same approach to "persuade" the government of our views on certain issues. I can think of numerous reasons why it wouldn´t work but nobody with any power even tries to resist any more. I keep reading attacks on Tea Party types but never hear anything much about their activities any more. Did the IRS really pummel them into submission?

John Kerry changes plans to
join Iran nuclear talks
BBC News [UK], by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 11/8/2013 12:38:18 AM     Post Reply
US Secretary of State John Kerry is to fly to join negotiations in Geneva on Iran´s nuclear programme, amid rising expectation of a breakthrough. Mr Kerry had been on a tour of the Middle East, but changed his plans at the invitation of the EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton. Iran´s foreign minister said a deal could be reached on Friday. The talks bring together world powers--the five permanent Security Council members plus Germany (P5+1)--and Iran. The BBC´s Kim Ghattas, who is travelling with Mr Kerry, says his dramatic decision to change his travel plans and go to Geneva is

Monster typhoon Haiyan roars into Philippines

Typhoon Haiyan is battering the Philippines with sustained winds of 235 km/h (146mph). Meteorologists say that if initial estimates based on satellite images are borne out, it could be the most powerful storm ever to make landfall. Schools and offices have been closed in the path of the storm, and thousands of people have been evacuated amid fears of serious damage. The region was already struggling to recover from an earthquake last month. The category-five storm was centred 62km (40 miles) south-east of Guiuan, in the country´s Eastern Samar province, the national weather service said.

Former S.C. State board chairman,
business associate accused of
racketeering in 52-count indictment
Post & Courier [Charleston, SC], by Glenn Smith    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 11/8/2013 12:15:16 AM     Post Reply
Jonathan Pinson used his position as chairman of South Carolina State University’s governing board to line his pockets with kickbacks and other ill-gotten rewards as he and business partners worked a series of shady deals from Florida to the Palmetto State, according to federal prosecutors. The allegations against the 43-year-old Greenville businessman are laid out in a dense, 52-count indictment unsealed Thursday in connection with an ongoing federal corruption probe at the Orangeburg college. The document seeks to tie Pinson and close friend Eric Robinson to a host of crimes, including mail and wire fraud, money laundering, extortion and bribery.

Obama says ‘sorry’ for misleading

Blind men see, the lame walk, dogs speak Latin. And in other news in miracles, President Barack Obama just apologised for something. In an interview with NBC news on Thursday he said "sorry" that some Americans are losing their health insurance as a result of Obamacare coming into effect--and for promising that this wouldn´t happen. [Snip] His words will be small comfort to the millions who risk losing their existing plans, but it´s still a moment of historical significance to hear Barack Obama apologise for screwing up. And he screwed up big time. We now know that members of the

Velvet smoking jackets, hovercrafts, Venusian karate, neutron flows, bouffant hair, angry civil servants, insulted Brigadiers, giggling popsies and crystals from Metebelis III. Yes, we´re into the telefantastic world of Jon Pertwee. That Pertwee´s performance as the Doctor would turn out to be the most serious of all was a revelation to the TV critics. For he wasn´t a very serious actor. The descendant of French aristocrats, he was expelled from two schools and thrown out of RADA for writing rude things on the toilet walls. He served in the navy and reached a high rank in partying; on one occasion

   

 

  


 
Iran nuclear:
Cautious optimism at Geneva talks

Talks between Iran and world powers on Iran´s disputed nuclear programme have begun in Geneva, with both sides expressing cautious optimism. It is the second round of talks since a new Iranian president took office in August with a more conciliatory stance. A spokesman for the EU´s foreign policy envoy Catherine Ashton said she had a "good meeting" with Iran´s foreign minister before discussions started. The West suspects Iran of seeking to build nuclear weapons. Tehran says its programme is for peaceful purposes. ´First step´ In comments broadcast on Iranian TV on Thursday, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said

This is a story with everything: bees, junk science, the French behaving badly, the EU at its worst… (H/T Richard North at EUreferendum). You´ll read it and go: "Yes! This is why I hate the EU. This is why it can never be reformed: because corruption and lies and horsetrading and an unaccountable bureaucracy of imperious apparatchiks and an inbuilt antipathy to business and free markets aren´t unfortunate and rare byproducts of the system. They ARE the system." [Snip] Green campaigners (aided and abetted by the usual celebrity rentamob) decided that the reason bee populations were suffering was because of

A spelling mistake in the words ´not recommended´ on the Obamacare website led to the site going down, it was revealed today in internal notes from ´war room´ meetings of experts scrabbling to breathe life into the shambolic operation. The error limited the choices Obamacare shoppers were offered in October and often presented them with overpriced options.

Yasser Arafat ´may have been
poisoned with polonium´
BBC News [UK], by Staff    Original Article

The late Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat may have been poisoned with radioactive polonium, says a Swiss forensic report obtained by al-Jazeera. Arafat´s official medical records say he died in 2004 from a stroke resulting from a blood disorder. But his body was exhumed last year amid continuing claims he was murdered. The Swiss report said tests on the body showed "unexpected high activity" of polonium, which "moderately" supported the poisoning theory. Many Palestinians and others have long believed that Israel poisoned Arafat. [Snip] A spokesman for the Israeli foreign ministry said the Swiss investigation was "more soap opera than science".

A group of 13 U.S. Marines returning home from Afghanistan welcomed back with first class treatment after generous fliers gave up their luxury seats so the comrades-in-arms could fly together in comfort. What´s more, when the Marines arrived at Chicago´s O´Hare International Airport on Monday, they were greeted by an impromptu parade of police, firefighters and other travelers who gathered on just one hour´s notice to honor their service. An elderly retired Marine working for the USO was responsible for the heroes welcome. He even arranged for their plane to taxi beneath an arch of water from Chicago fire trucks

Oprah Winfrey´s father ordered to pay $70,000

Daily Mail [UK], by Helen Pow    Original Article

A judge has sided with Oprah Winfrey´s estranged stepmother in a bitter divorce battle, ruling her 79-year-old father´s ´adultery and inappropriate marital conduct´ were behind the couple´s split. The decision came just days after Barbara Winfrey, 66, reportedly dragged her billionaire daughter-in-law into the messy 18-month-long fight, alleging Oprah was trying to swindle her out of money. Vernon Winfrey´s initial June 2012 petition for divorce was rejected in a November 1 ruling and Barbara´s separate bid to end their 12-year union was granted, with Oprah´s dad ordered to pay his ex-wife nearly $70,000 in attorney fees. Barbara claimed Vernon cheated on her for

It was, I think, the most brazenly mendacious claim an American president has told since Bill Clinton’s finger-wagging insistence that “I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky.” I have in mind Barack Obama’s statement, made earlier this week, in which he said this: “Now, if you have or had one of these plans before the Affordable Care Act came into law and you really liked that plan, what we said was you can keep it if it hasn’t changed since the law passed.” (Emphasis added.) That is not, in fact, what the president said. Not by a country

President Obama said Thursday that he is "sorry" that some Americans are losing their current health insurance plans as a result of the Affordable Care Act, despite his promise that no one would have to give up a health plan they liked. "I am sorry that they are finding themselves in this situation based on assurances they got from me," he told NBC News in an exclusive interview at the White House. "We've got to work hard to make sure that they know we hear them, and we are going to do everything we can to deal with folks who find themselves in a tough position as a consequence of this," he added.

How the heck did that happen? Most public polls leading up to Election Day had Democrat Terry McAuliffe coasting to victory, some by double digits, in the Virginia governor’s race. Instead he squeaked by, beating Republican Ken Cuccinelli by less than 3 percentage points.
The much-closer-than-expected outcome blunts the narrative that this was a clean win for Democrats going into 2014 and guarantees an intense blame game among Republicans about what might have put Cuccinelli over the top.

They said he was “unelectable.” The RNC put only $3 million into this race. Ken was outspent by a margin of something between 4:1 and 10:1, if you believe the Associated Press. The Democrats poured everything into trying to lie to voters and portray Cuccinelli as an extremist — and they barely pulled this one out. Would another $3 million have swung 50,000 votes? The Republicans, starting with Bill Bolling, who undercut Cuccinelli as unelectable have egg all over their faces. This was a winnable election. How did we give this away to Terry McAuliffe? Some serious soul-searching should be

Yesterday’s exit polls from New Jersey won’t easily be forgotten. They will be cited and repeated endlessly by pundits and Governor Chris Christie’s supporters to bolster his case for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016. Any Republican who can get 60 percent of the vote in a blue state is bound to become the subject of presidential speculation. But when a Republican who is pro-life and has fought a running battle with labor unions and Democrats over taxes and budgets does so, he parachutes into the first tier of any discussion of future candidates.

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) will meet with President Obama at the White House Thursday afternoon to plot strategy for passing comprehensive immigration reform. McCain said Obama requested the meeting, which comes at a time political momentum for immigration reform is flagging. “I’m going over to the White House this afternoon to meet with him [on] immigration reform and others,” he said. “I actually have a respectful and cordial relationship with him.” McCain and Obama need to shore up the support of wavering allies such as Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), who has backed off the push to overhaul the nation´s immigration laws in a

On ESPN’s Around the Horn, frequent guest Kevin Blackistone of the Dallas Morning News said that football games should not include the singing of the national anthem beforehand, as that added to the “military symbolism.” He actually called the Star-Spangled Banner a “war anthem.” Blackistone was addressing controversy over Northwestern University’s American flag-themed football uniforms, designed to raise money for the Wounded Warriors Project. In a show segment titled “Buy or Sell,” Blackistone said that he would “sell” the uniforms: I´m going to sell it for the same reasons.

Bill de Blasio’s liberal policies aren’t the only thing on display as he moves onto the national stage as New York’s mayor-elect. His family’s hair is also front and center. For those just tuning in: Wife Chirlane McCray’s long dreadlocks are often pulled into a smart, flowing ponytail. Son Dante’s famously large Afro stands triumphant. His daughter, Chiara, wears her loose, kinky locks framed with a band of roses. For a rare instant in the nation’s electoral history, the African American hair politic is on full display. The hair aesthetic of de Blasio’s family speaks to the political moment and

The media’s election-night advice to the GOP is worthless. Arnold Schwarzenegger won re-election handily in 2006, defeating his hapless opponent Phil Angelides by a 56% to 38.9% margin. Yet this sizable win was a meaningless victory for the GOP. Similarly, Chris Christie’s thumping victory on Tuesday night over an equally forgettable candidate contains almost no national meaning, save that Chris Christie is good for Chris Christie. Like Schwarzenegger, Christie cruised to re-election not as a real Republican but as a preening non-partisan moderate. Like Schwarzenegger, Christie’s popularity hasn’t translated into any support for Republicans in his own legislature. Which raises the question:
