Posted By:JoniTx, 12/8/2013 8:23:31 AM

A congressional delegation is expected to go to Nelson Mandela’s memorial services in South Africa and is scheduled leave Sunday, Fox News learned Saturday. It is unclear who House Speaker John Boehner is sending, but members of the Congressional Black Caucus are expected to be on the trip. President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama also will travel to South Africa next week to honor Mandela, the White House said Friday. Former President George W. Bush, as well as Laura Bush, plan to travel with the Obamas on Air Force One to the services, a spokesman confirmed.

I saw a live picture of the White House a short time ago and the flag was at half staff. This is another insanity of this administration. Mr. Mandela was a great man but he wasn´t an American. Let Africa lower their flag, it´s not up to us. If he were white, it wouldn´t have been lowered.

The clown posse, otherwise known as the congressional black caucus, will be at the funeral, embarrassing all Americans. And I´m sure they will attempt to disrespect President George W. Bush, just as he was disrespected at Coretta Scott King´s funeral.
Their problem is that President
Bush is viewed as a hero in Africa, due to his work on AIDS.
One more thing - on ABC news this morning, they had a headline that Mandela didn´t get along with Bush, but the content of the discussion was that Mandela didn´t agree with Bush or Clinton about Khadaffi or the PLO. Mandela was on the wrong side of those issues.

Re #5....found this regarding flying the flag at half-staff:

MOURNING~Following the death of the President or a former President, the flag should be flown at half-staff for 30 days.~Following the death of the Vice President, the Chief Justice, a retired Chief Justice of the United States or the Speaker of the House of Representatives, the flag should be flown at half-staff for 10 days.~Following the death of an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court, a Secretary of an executive or military department, a former Vice President, or the Governor of a State, territory or possession, the flag should be flown at half-staff from the day of death until interment. ~Following the death of a Member of Congress, the flag should be flown at half-staff the day of death and the following day.

Scale of Guinea´s Ebola epidemic

Guinea faces an Ebola epidemic on an unprecedented scale as it battles to contain confirmed cases now scattered across several locations that are far apart, medical charity Medecins Sans Frontieres said on Monday. The warning from an organization used to tackling Ebola in Central Africa comes after Guinea´s president appealed for calm as the number of deaths linked to an outbreak on the border with Liberia and Sierra Leone hit 80. The outbreak of one of the world´s most lethal infectious diseases has spooked a number of governments with weak health systems, prompting Senegal to close its border with Guinea

Deflation Causes Europe to Run

Margaret Thatcher famously commented on the European welfare state spending, “The problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people´s money” to spend. European elites are panicking over a report in the Financial Times of London titled "Data Deepen Eurozone Deflation Fears." With government spending at 50% of the gross domestic product, the 28 countries of the European Union have pursued economic policies that generate inflation to spike tax collections by pushing their citizens into higher progressive tax brackets. Having stifled economic growth and used inflation to tax away prosperity, European elites should panic. Both Europe and America

When it comes to women in the White House, Sarah Palin takes the cake in Americans’ eyes, a new poll found. The Economist/YouGov poll asked participants which female candidate — other than Hillary Clinton — they’d like to see run for the high office. Mrs. Palin won 9 percent of the vote, Breitbart reported. She was followed by Sen. Elizabeth Warren and former Secretary of State and National Security Adviser Condoleeza Rice, at 8 percent each. Almost two-thirds of respondents said America was more than ready to elect a woman to president. First lady Michelle Obama only won 2 percentage points,

New technical problems with HealthCare.gov posed a roadblock Monday to people trying to beat the sign-up deadline. On Monday afternoon, a technical glitch was preventing people from filing new applications. A tech team, though, was brought in to resolve the issue. Earlier Monday, a series of error messages came up as the large volume of users stressed the system. According to HHS, more than 100,000 people were using the system at once as of noon. The increased traffic is good news for the administration, but the recurring website problems are not. The deadline to sign up for the president´s signature

The Obama administration wants to spend $400,000 on a camel sculpture for a new embassy building in Pakistan, according to a report Monday. BuzzFeed broke the news that the State Department has plans to commission the camel sculpture from John Baldessari, an American artist. The art is called, “Camel Contemplating Needle.” According to a government document posted by BuzzFeed, the sculpture is a “large 500lb fiberglass aluminum, stainless steel, acrylic and painted contemporary art piece.” “Public art which will be presented in the new embassy should reflect the values of a predominately Islamist country,” the document states.

Ahmad Zuaiter, however, is doing something a little different: using Dubai as a geographically central base from which to invest in frontier markets globally. Mr. Zuaiter, who managed money for George Soros until 2011, has been working for more than a year on a new firm called Jadara Capital, based in the Dubai International Financial Centre.

If Betsey McCaughey is correct (and I bet she is, because she has not only read the entire ObamaCare bill, she has written a book about it), Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan publicly humiliated herself during the oral arguments on the Hobby Lobby case, revealing that she either did not read the law, or failed to comprehend it if she did so. Writing in the New York Sun, McCaughey lays out what is wrong with the Justice’s declaration about Obamacare: she asserted that the statute itself mandates provision of birth control. Not one word in the Affordable Care Act guarantees health plans will cover birth control products.

The report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a United Nations group that periodically summarizes climate science, concluded that ice caps are melting, sea ice in the Arctic is collapsing, water supplies are coming under stress, heat waves and heavy rains are intensifying, coral reefs are dying, and fish and many other creatures are migrating toward the poles or

A National Labor Relations Board official has given the green light to Northwestern University football players to form a union. The March 26 decision by the NLRB´s Chicago regional director, Peter Sung Ohr, held that scholarship football players are "employees" for purposes of federal labor law. Ohr rejected the longstanding view of Northwestern and the National Collegiate Athletic Association that players are "student-athletes" rather than employees. While Ohr´s decision is hardly the final word on this issue, it does accelerate the legal and political battle against the NCAA and its century-old amateurism rules. Is Football Academic?

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.

The report, provided to Breitbart News ahead of its late Sunday evening release, reviews internal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) metrics to conclude that the Obama administration released 35 percent—or 68,000—convicted criminal aliens back into the U.S. general population when they could have been deported.

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
