Dubai Ruler Demands End of Iran Sanctions
FARS News Agency [Iran], by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 1/13/2014 9:44:11 AM

Tehran - Dubai ruler Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum urged the international community to lift economic sanctions against Iran. “Iran is our neighbor and we don’t want any problems,” Sheikh Mohammed, who is also vice president and prime minister of the UAE, said in a televised interview with BBC News. Sheikh Mohammed said that wider relief from sanctions would mean “everyone will benefit”. On November 24, Iran and the Group 5+1 (the US, Russia, China, Britain and France plus Germany) sealed a six-month Joint Plan of Action in Geneva to lay the groundwork for the full resolution of the West’s decade-old dispute with

Comments:
What could possibly go wrong with our "dead man´s hand" in this game with Iran? We´ll start to learn a week from today how bad 0bama & Kerry helped accelerate Iran´s nuclear activity. Let US not forget that Clinton has helped the Chinese to get a rover on the Moon currently. Iran´s nuclear bomb is long overdue by the estimates we´ve heard year-after-year.

Appears that Dubai grasps that Obama has little to no interest in protecting friendly nations. So, if Obama and his EC weaklings are willing to appease Iran, then a weak Dubai will do the same. Obama´s appeasement campaign will most likely forge a bond between Israel and Saudi Arabia to forcibly decommission Iran´s nuclear sites.

US agency to probe health exchanges
Associated Press, by Jeff Barnard    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 3/6/2014 2:43:16 AM     Post Reply
The investigative arm of Congress on Wednesday agreed to look into problems with state health exchange websites around the country. The U.S. Government Accountability Office accepted an initial request from a group of House Republicans seeking an audit on how $304 million in federal grants were spent on the Cover Oregon website, which has yet to enroll a single person online without special assistance. The agency said due to similar requests from several members of Congress and congressional committees related to the rollout of online health care exchanges, it would broaden the investigation and issue several separate reports on

Washington - Sen. Rand Paul delivered a fervent plea Wednesday to expand the Republican Party and make the GOP more compassionate toward those "who aren´t treated fairly by the criminal justice system," noting African-Americans and Hispanics in particular. Speaking to a group of conservatives, the Kentucky Republican and potential 2016 presidential candidate also acknowledged a rift within the party over budgetary issues and civil liberties. "People say, ´Oh Republicans shouldn´t fight.´ I disagree. There´s a struggle, and there should be a struggle to make the party better," he said, while headlining the Coalitions for

Israel Says It Seized Gaza-Bound

Jerusalem - The Israeli navy seized a ship in the Red Sea on Wednesday that was carrying dozens of advanced Iranian-supplied rockets made in Syria and intended for Palestinian guerrillas in the Gaza Strip, the military said. (Snip) Lerner said dozens of M302 rockets were found aboard the Klos C, a weapon that could have struck deep into Israel from Gaza and would have significantly enhanced the firepower of the Palestinian enclave's Hamas rulers and other armed factions. "The M302 in its most advanced model can strike over 100 miles, and if they would have reached Gaza, ultimately that would have meant millions of Israelis under

Washington - The first immigration bill in the House this year would prohibit any money for the public advocate for immigrants in U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. (Snip) Republicans criticized Obama, arguing that he selectively enforced the nation´s laws. Along with the immigration bill, the committee approved two other measures — one would establish a procedure for the House or Senate to authorize a lawsuit against the executive branch for failing to enforce the law, the second would require government officials to report to Congress on reasons for nonenforcement. The measures have no chance in the Democratic-led Senate,

Washington - The White House says President Barack Obama has asked National Security Adviser Susan Rice to travel to Israel in May. Her visit comes after bilateral talks this week between Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Obama. Rice would lead the U.S. delegation to the U.S.-Israel Consultative Group. The trip would be Rice´s first visit to Israel as national security adviser and the White House says she would continue strategic consultations on a wide range of bilateral and regional issues. During their Monday meeting, Obama pressed Netanyahu to make the "tough decisions" needed to move forward on talks with

Nearly half a billion dollars has gone missing, and nobody knows how. Some say there was outright theft. Others suspect fraud. (Snip) Bitcoin, though, was born of mistrust of humans and their institutions. It rests on the belief that financial safety emerges from the integrity of the technology, a computer code that controls a payment system, rather than the trustworthiness of the humans who participate in it. To save their nascent currency, Bitcoin’s backers may be forced to alter their philosophy and embrace the same messy humans — auditors, insurers and even regulators — that the currency’s most ardent supporters have long

Liz Wahl wasn’t just disgusted by the Kremlin-funded TV network’s handling of Ukraine, she says in an exclusive interview. RT’s coverage of the entire world “made me feel sick.” American journalist Liz Wahl just made Vladimir Putin’s enemies list. Wahl, an American anchor for RT-America, a cable news network funded by the Russian government, stunned viewers Wednesday, when, at the end of her 5 PM broadcast, she announced her resignation from the channel. The announcement was stunning. But Wahl’s decision to quit the network was a long time coming. In an exclusive interview with The Daily Beast, she says that,

Washington - The CIA is investigating whether its officers improperly monitored members of the Senate Intelligence Committee, which oversees the intelligence agency, U.S. officials said Wednesday. The CIA inspector general is looking into the circumstances surrounding the committee´s investigation into allegations of CIA abuse in a Bush-era detention and interrogation program, Senate Intelligence Committee Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., told reporters. The allegations include whether CIA officers improperly monitored Senate investigators and possibly accessed the computers they were using, two officials familiar with

Boehner: Congress will ´look at´ DC pot bill

Washington - House Speaker John Boehner says he´s sure Congress will look at a law passed by the D.C. Council that decriminalizes possession of less than one ounce of marijuana in the nation´s capital. When asked Wednesday, Boehner said he was unfamiliar with the law. Congress has the authority to invalidate local District of Columbia laws, but it hasn´t used that authority in more than 20 years. Mayor Vincent Gray intends to sign the bill. It would make possession of small amounts of pot a civil offense subject to a $25 fine. Smoking marijuana in public would still be a criminal offense.

U.S. needs to add student
online privacy rules
Los Angeles Times, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 3/5/2014 4:51:22 PM     Post Reply
As more of our children´s education moves online, there are increased opportunities for abusing the collection of their personal data. Last month, state Senate leader Darrell Steinberg (D-Sacramento) introduced a bill that would help close a loophole in federal regulations — at least in California — in an effort to safeguard personal information of public school students. The potential privacy violations could be significant, and it makes sense for the Legislature to act now. Under the federal Family and Educational Rights Protection Act, schools that receive federal funding are rightly barred from making disclosures about students´ education records

The gay rights advocate and former member of the San Francisco Human Right Commission who pleaded guilty to possession of child pornography was sentenced Wednesday and will be required to register as a sex offender for life, according to the District Attorney´s Office. Larry Brinkin, 67, agreed to a plea deal in January with prosecutors, who dropped a second charge of distributing child pornography. Brinkin was sentenced Wednesday to a year´s detention, with six months served in county jail and six months home detention where he will have to wear an ankle monitor, Assistant District Attorney Alex Bastian said.

Phoenix - Calling them a federal “dictate,’’ Sen. Al Melvin persuaded Republican colleagues in the Senate to vote Tuesday to scrap the Common Core education standards the state and schools adopted just four years earlier. The legislation crafted by the Tucson Republican prohibits the state Board of Education from doing anything more to implement the standards that are designed to spell out what students should be learning at all stages of their education. It also means those schools which have put them in place are going to have to dump them. SB 1310 also requires the state to withdraw from

Lois Lerner fears for her life if she testifies openly before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Wednesday, according to her attorney. House oversight committee chairman Rep. Darrell Issa announced Sunday that Lerner will testify at Wednesday’s hearing, but Lerner’s attorney Bill Taylor said that Lerner will seek to continue invoking her Fifth Amendment rights and will also seek a one-week delay of her testimony. Oversight members are reportedly open to granting Lerner a one-week delay if she petitions for one in person at Wednesday’s hearing. The delay would allow Lerner’s lawyers to

During a hearing of the House Oversight Committee into allegations that the Internal Revenue Service scrutinized conservative groups’ tax-exempt status filings unduly, Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) exploded at Committee Chairman Rep. Darrell Issa (D-CA). Cummings charged that the way in which the proceedings were being conducted were “Un-American.” In apparent protest, Issa then walked out of the committee hearing. While making a statement before the committee, Issa stood up and asked Cummings to yield. “If you will sit down and allow me to ask a question,” Cummings insisted. “I am a member of a Congress of the United States of America.” “I am

We are embroiled in a global conflict, and the supposed “leader of the free world” is taking photo ops at a grade school, making statements about the invasion of Ukraine on a kids’ rug. Meanwhile, Putin incredibly denied that any Russian troops are in Ukraine, and somehow President Barack ‘I-call-the-Russian-invasion-an-uncontested-arrival’ Obama actually thought it was a good idea to set up a lectern on a grade school alphabet mat when the entire world is seeing the consequences of his weakness. This was the guy known for dramatic stagecraft and brilliant political framing, and this is what we get? Just amazing.

Saturday, the Republican National Committee (RNC) released a statement in honor of Women’s History Month in which they highlighted women trailblazers, mentioning some prominent women in the Republican Party. Conspicuously absent, however, was former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.Republicans “played a leading role in securing women’s right to vote,” Chairman Reince Priebus and Co-Chairman Sharon Day wrote, adding that Susan B. Anthony joined with other suffragists to pass the 19th Amendment, which was finally accomplished in 1919. Boasting a unique role Republican women have played, they stated: Republican women have a history of being trailblazers, breaking ground and glass ceilings--from Margaret Chase Smith,

MSNBC host Rachel Maddow asserted Monday that George W. Bush, who exited office in 2009, is ultimately at fault for the current Ukrainian crisis. Ms. Maddow told colleague Andrea Mitchell that Mr. Bush’s entire Middle East policy has led to several overseas conflicts, from the Iraq War to the ongoing Russia-Ukraine dispute. “The decisions of our generation on national security are determined more than anything by what the George W. Bush administration did with that nine-year war in Iraq and, alongside it, a 13-year war in Afghanistan that’s still going on,” Ms. Maddow said during a discussion about her new

At Chipotle, guacamole costs extra - but it soon may not be available at all thanks to climate change. The Denver, Colorado-based chain of Mexican fast-food restaurants threatened to take the condiment off the menu because of the rising price of avocados. While the avocado crop is currently fine, scientists at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory are predicting drier temperatures will lead to a 40 per cent drop in California´s avocado crop over the next 32 years. Most modern scientists agree that there is a direct correlation between the increase of droughts and global warming, according to Think Progress.

But he said he believes she will eventually have to talk. “I’ll wait for a report from Chairman Issa about what happened or what will happen. But at some point I believe that

A shocking poll released Tuesday shows overwhelming majorities of people in Virginia, New York and New Jersey support a national gun registry. The survey released Tuesday was done jointly by Roanoke College in Virginia, Rutgers-Eagleton in New Jersey and Siena College in New York. It shows that 68 percent of New York voters and a whopping 74 percent of New Jersey voters are in favor of establishing a national gun registry. Even in the southern state of Virginia — which has gone blue in recent years — 63 percent want the federal government to track all guns. NRA Spokesman Andrew

We now know — even the Associated Press, better described as the Administration’s Press, has now acknowledged it — that President Barack Obama, in AP’s words, “did not participate” in a White House meeting of his national security team Saturday morning “to get updates on the situation and discuss policy options” in reaction to Russia’s invasion and takeover of Crimea and threatened military intervention in the rest of Ukraine. Those who need help getting past AP’s whitewashing need to understand that “did not participate” means “did not attend.” Last time I checked, the president of the United States was the nation’s

As a U.S. senator, Barack Obama won $48 million in federal funding to help Ukraine destroy thousands of tons of guns and ammunition--weapons which are now unavailable to the Ukrainian army as it faces down Russian President Vladimir Putin during his invasion of Crimea. In August 2005, just seven months after his swearing-in, Obama traveled to Donetsk in Eastern Ukraine with then-Indiana Republican Senator Dick Lugar, touring a conventional weapons site. The two met in Kiev with President Victor Yushchenko, making the case that an existing Cooperative Threat Reduction Program covering the destruction of nuclear weapons should be expanded to
