White House fights Iran sanctions bill
as nuclear deal start date announced

Fox News, by Joy Lin

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 1/13/2014 10:10:54 AM

Iran and six world powers announced Sunday that they´ve agreed on the terms for implementing a recently struck nuclear deal -- but the Obama administration continued to battle a bipartisan push for new U.S. sanctions which it claims could jeopardize the pact. The White House said Sunday that the deal will kick in starting Jan. 20. Under the terms of the six-month agreement, Iran will begin to rein in its nuclear program, while the United States and other countries will ease off existing sanctions. Iran will begin receiving blocked overseas funds around Feb. 1, when the nation will receive $550 million, a

How is it that this so-called President always finds a way to "grease the skids" for our Muslim enemies? How in the world he still has a multitude of followers in the United States is beyond me. Obama is purely evil.

Fifty-two people in Wisconsin were un-enrolled in Obamacare due to a glitch. They all must now re-enroll in order to be covered by Obamacare. WKOW in Madison reports:(Snip for video)"52 Wisconsin residents who signed up for insurance on healthcare.gov are about to find out they´re going to have to do it all over again," says a local newsreader. "There´s another problem with the federal agency in charge of the Affordable Care Act," says the other newsreader.

David Plouffe Sounds ‘Screaming Siren’ Warning
Dems They Face Another 2010 in Midterms

Former White House advisor and President Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign manager, David Plouffe, issued a warning to his fellow Democrats on Friday. Remarking a Republican candidate’s victory on a special election in Florida this week, Plouffe said that the race’s results should serve as a “screaming siren” to Democrats that they have a “turnout issue” and could face another 2010. Speaking with Bloomberg’s Al Hunt, Plouffe said that Rep. David Jolly’s (R-FL) victory on Tuesday could serve as an indicator of events to come. “It doesn’t necessarily have to be a harbinger. We have a turnout issue,” Plouffe told Hunt. “And I

Flight 370 hijacking theories:
Improbability or best hope?
CNN, by Mariano Castillo    Original Article

In an incident where nothing can be ruled out, is it a surprise that some relatives of the passengers on missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 are hoping it is a hijacking? To some it is a far-fetched conspiracy theory, and to others, it represents the only scenario that leaves open the possibility of seeing their loved ones alive. That´s how some of the families of the missing in Beijing feel. Authorities have been unified in their preliminary conclusions that terrorism does not appear to be behind the plane´s disappearance. But no one can rule it out. "I cannot confirm whether there

Arnold Schwarzenegger has been a world champion bodybuilder, box office star, California governor and scandal sheet cover boy, but at age 61 he has finally achieved his life-long dream: He bought a tank. Not just any tank, but a classic M47 Patton with an 810 hp V12 that weighs nearly 50 tons. And he’s going to let one lucky fan drive it. Not just drive it, mind you, but crush things with it. Something he apparently loves to do. To raise money for the After-School All-Stars charity he supports, the Governator is raffling off a trip to LA to spend

Vindicating Mitch McConnell

Headlines that Mitch McConnell wants to “crush” the Tea Party are spreading across conservative websites. But the New York Times article, which quotes McConnell, is—of shock to no one—misleading. The piece opens by providing a background of 2010 and 2012 Senate races in which conservative activist groups supported Tea Party candidates able to succeed in primaries, but unelectable in general races. The Times identifies groups such as the Senate Conservatives Fund, the Madison Project, and FreedomWorks as similar players in 2014 Senate campaigns. In Kentucky, Kansas, and Mississippi, Tea Party candidates, with help from the above-mentioned groups, are opposing incumbents—McConnell being one of

   

 

  


 
Bad decade: Malaysia
Airlines has catalog of woes

Posted By: Pluperfect- 3/12/2014 7:35:15 AM     Post Reply
HONG KONG — Within an industry notorious for impoverishing shareholders and irking customers, Malaysia Airlines has stood out for its years of restructurings and losses. The company now has global recognition of a far more unfavorable kind after one of its jets disappeared four days ago with 239 people aboard. There has been no suggestion that the unrelenting financial pressures faced by the airline and its 19,000 employees somehow played a role in the disappearance of flight MH370 en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing. But the revelation this week that the jet´s co-pilot allowed two female passengers to ride

DNC literally indebted to unions

Recent fundraising figures show the RNC faring better than its DNC counterpart in just about all areas. Notably, the RNC has no debt and nearly $10 Million in cash on hand. The same, however, cannot be said for the DNC, thanks in part to some clever money shuffling among kindred spirits. In the final two months of the 2012 election cycle, the DNC was strapped for cash, and opted to take out two low interest loans totaling $15 Million. The loans were provided by Amalgamated Bank, which uses the tagline, “America’s Labor Bank” and promises to continue “the progressive traditions of its

California wants to force Alabama to give

The phrase “cooped up” won’t hold quite the same meaning much longer if Californians have their way. In 2008, voters in California inexplicably passed a proposition requiring California-based egg producers to provide either free ranges or larger cages for their hens. After concerns were raised that this would put California’s egg producers at an economic disadvantage with producers in other states, provisions were added to extend the mandate to any eggs imported from other states to be sold in California. The law is currently set to go into effect next year. However, six state attorneys general, including Alabama AG Luther Strange, have

Barry Bonds Thinks He Belongs

Scottsdale, Arizona -Barry Bonds certainly thinks he´s worthy of election to the Hall of Fame. "Without a doubt," baseball´s home run king said Monday at the San Francisco Giants´ spring training camp, where he will serve as a hitting instructor for a week. The 49-year-old Bonds spent his last 15 big league seasons with San Francisco, finishing in 2007 with 762 homers. But his final years were clouded by suspicions of performance-enhancing drug use, and the seven-time NL MVP was convicted of one obstruction count in April 2011 by a jury that found an answer he gave was criminally evasive during 2003 testimony

Why is it so expensive to

I t´s become commonplace to note that U.S. infrastructure costs are very high. What is less appreciated is the staggering scale of the difference between American infrastructure costs and those of other nations. Like our health care, U.S. infrastructure isn´t just a tad higher than the next most expensive country — we pay something like twice as much as our closest peer (usually the U.K., which is itself a very expensive place). And when you compare America to, say, Spain, we´re talking order-of-magnitude differences. In other words, Spain, a developed market democracy, gets 10 to 20 times as much infrastructure for its

Census may have used

There is solid evidence that the Philadelphia office of the Census Bureau didn’t cheat on unemployment data only in 2010. The scam continued until I exposed it this past November. On Nov. 19, I wrote a column that broke the news about Julius Buckmon, a Census enumerator — or data collector — who was conducting surveys in the Washington, DC, area for the Labor Department’s Current Population Survey (CPS). The CPS — also known as the Household Survey — is what determines the nation’s monthly unemployment rate, a number recently used by the Federal Reserve to make monetary policy and by many

FORT BRAGG, N.C. -- Attorneys for an Army general charged with sexual assault have a deadline on Tuesday to decide on a judge´s offer to plea-bargain the case with a new set of military officials. Judge Col. James Pohl made the offer after finding evidence that the case against Brig. Gen. Jeffrey A. Sinclair may have been improperly influenced by political concerns. His decision threatened to take the case out of the hands of current prosecutors and gave Sinclair´s lawyers another shot at effectively stripping away the most serious charges. While Pohl declined to dismiss the charges, Sinclair´s lead lawyer

The maker of Sam Adams beer announced Friday that it is withdrawing its sponsorship of Boston´s St. Patrick´s Day parade because organizers exclude gay groups. Boston Beer Co.´s decision came a day after a bar in Boston´s South End said it would no longer serve Sam Adams beer because of the brewer´s affiliation with the parade, which is scheduled for Sunday. Mayor Martin Walsh and U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch have been trying to broker a deal that would have allowed a gay group to march, but those negotiations broke down.

Secretary of State John Kerry warned of serious repercussions for Russia on Monday if last-ditch talks over the weekend to resolve the crisis in Ukraine failed to persuade Moscow to soften its stance. Kerry will travel to London for a Friday meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov ahead of a Sunday referendum vote in the Crimea region to secede from Ukraine and join the Russian Federation. U.S. and European officials argue that Moscow is orchestrating the referendum and waging an intimidation campaign with thousands of Russian troops controlling the region.

Fertility is the missing chapter in sex education. Sobering facts about women’s declining fertility after their 20s are being withheld from ambitious young women, who are propelled along a career track devised for men. The refusal by public schools’ sex-education programs to acknowledge gender differences is betraying both boys and girls. The genders should be separated for sex counseling. It is absurd to avoid the harsh reality that boys have less to lose from casual serial sex than do girls, who risk pregnancy and whose future fertility can be compromised by disease. Boys need lessons in basic ethics and moral reasoning

The vote was 233-181 in the Republican-led House as GOP lawmakers excoriated Obama for multiple changes to his 4-year-old health care law, steps he’s taken to allow young immigrants to remain in the United States and the administration’s resistance to defend the federal law banning gay marriage. Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., sponsor of the ENFORCE the Law Act, delivered a fiery speech and read a series of statements by Obama when he was an Illinois senator in which he warned of the encroachment of the executive on the powers of the other branches of government. “How does going from being

US officials believe that two communications systems aboard Malaysian Airlines flight 370 were shut down separately, 14 minutes apart - which indicates the plane did not come down because of a sudden catastrophic failure. The data reporting system was shut down at 1.07 am and the transponder was turned off at 1.21 am just after the the pilot signed off to Malaysian air traffic controllers with ´All right, good night,´ and before the Boeing 777 apparently changed course and turned west. According to investigators this indicated that the switch-off could have been a deliberate act and officials told ABC News that the

President Barack Obama lamented on Friday that he´s been unfairly criticized for wearing loose jeans. “I’ve been unfairly maligned about my jeans,” he joked in a radio interview with Ryan Seacrest. “The truth is, generally I look very sharp in jeans." One fashion faux pas at the 2009 MLB All-Star baseball game was a costly learning experience, he added. "There was one episode like four years ago in which I was wearing some loose jeans mainly because I was out on the pitcher’s mound and I didn’t want to feel confined while I was pitching and I think I’ve paid

Will Darrell Issa say he’s sorry? House Democrats again targeted the controversial Issa on Thursday, with a bid to force the California Republican to publicly apologize for what they dub his “repeated history of abuse” toward the minority party. Democratic Rep. Dan Kildee (Mich.)’s resolution condemns Issa for repeated clashes with Democrats – exchanges Kildee said don’t live up to the responsibility of a committee chairman. Issa wields the gavel at the powerful House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, which is probing the Internal Revenue Service controversy and Benghazi, among other hot issues. “[I]t seems that Chairman Issa is more

It’s the latest installment in what’s becoming a frequent attack by Mr. Reid on David and Charles Koch, two of the wealthiest men in America. Mr. Reid led off his weekly press availability

In case you hadn’t heard, young people these days — a.k.a “the Millennials” — are the most cynical and distrusting generation ever recorded. Only 19 percent think most people can be trusted. According to a big study from the Pew Research Center, they are less attached to marriage, religion, and political institutions than Gen Xers, Baby Boomers, and the other demographic flavors journalists love to use. They like their friends, their digital “social networks,” and their toys, and that’s about it. Not even a majority will call themselves “patriotic.” Probably more dismaying for liberals: Of any living generation, they are
