Justin Bieber legal run-ins

LOS ANGELES – Justin Bieber has been the focus of two investigations in the past two weeks. A search warrant was issued at his home in California in relation to the alleged vandalism of his neighbor’s property, and the singer was arrested on suspicion of DUI and drag racing in Florida.(Snip)Here’s the thing: Bieber is not a U.S. citizen – he’s from Canada. So many are asking of Bieber faces any chance of deportation over his alleged offenses. Some are even lobbying for it. A petition requesting that President Obama deport Bieber and revoke his visa has been gaining popularity in the

Comments:
His blood alcohol was over the limit for juveniles.

Someone mentioned yesterday that he is here on a visa. With what he´s been up to, that could become problematic. Except there´s Obama´s uncle in Massachusetts...

His taxes must look good to the IRS. But he is a Canadian citizen. Probably pays US taxes on only his earnings in United States.

He needs help before he kills himself or someone else.

#4 Getting that help would be up to his parents and can´t they get that in Canada? We used to hear all the time about the superior healthcare system in the great North. I say send them all home. We don´t need his taxes that badly, I´m sure.

Reportedly this guy, a Canadian citizen has been in the USA on what amounts to a temporary work visa classification O-1. He has departed the USA and is now in Panama. The next time he comes back to the USA he must again in accordance with the immigration laws apply for admission to the USA. At that time if the inspecting immigration officer knows that he is a drug abuser he could be denied admission and excluded from the USA. No drug use conviction would be necessary to keep him out. He could apply for a waiver but his waiver application could be denied because he admitted to abusing drugs in Maimi just a few days ago. Since Obama has not been enforcing the immigration laws lately he will probably get waived right through the inspection process.

Paris Restricts Car Usage to Combat Smog
Reuters, by Sam Frizell    Original Article
Posted By: earlybird- 3/16/2014 11:57:39 AM     Post Reply
France will restrict auto use in Paris beginning Monday in an effort to reduce dangerous pollution levels in the country’s capital. Paris’ high number of private car drivers and France’s diesel subsidies make the city more susceptible to high levels of smog than other European capitals, and a recent week of a warm, sunny weather has made the air quality worse, Reuters reports. Paris has 147 micrograms of particulate matter per cubic meter of air, compared with 81 in Berlin and 79.7 in London. The plan being introduced Monday calls for drivers to only use their cars on alternate days

Democrats have turned on the "screaming siren" this week as they grow increasingly worried that this year´s midterm elections could be a replay of the 2010 Republican sweep. Several factors have played into the Democratic skittishness, including President Obama´s persistently low approval ratings and the emergence of two viable Republican Senate candidates in states Democrats had hoped to hold fairly easily this fall. But it was the volume on the doomsday chatter went up noticeably with the victory of Republican Richard Jolly over Democrat Alex Sink in the special election for Florida´s 13th Congressional District this Tuesday.

SEPANG, Malaysia — A signaling system was disabled on the missing Malaysia Airlines jet before a pilot spoke to Malaysian air traffic control without hinting at any trouble, a senior Malaysian official said Sunday, shedding new light on a question important to determining why the plane turned far off its planned route and disappeared over a week ago with 239 people onboard. Malaysia’s defense minister, Hishammuddin Hussein, offered the detail a day after the country’s prime minister, Najib Razak, ended days of hesitant, sometimes contradictory government statements about the Malaysia Airlines plane that disappeared over a week ago.

Facing international pressure, the U.S. government said Friday it will give up control over important technical aspects of the Internet. The Commerce Department will no longer oversee the Internet Corporation of Assigned Names and Numbers, a nonprofit group that manages the Internet´s address system. Larry Strickling, the assistant secretary of Commerce for communications and information, said the "global Internet community" will have the final say over the database of names and addresses that allows computers around the world to communicate with each other. The Internet was invented in the United States, and the country has long maintained a central role. But as the

Moscow (AFP) - A United States surveillance drone has been intercepted above the Ukranian region of Crimea, a Russian state arms and technology group said Friday. "The drone was flying at about 4,000 metres (12,000 feet) and was virtually invisible from the ground. It was possible to break the link with US operators with complex radio-electronic" technology, said Rostec in a statement. The drone fell "almost intact into the hands of self-defence forces" added Rostec, which said it had manufactured the equipment used to down the aircraft, but did not specify who was operating it.

If the U.S. moves to sanction Putin and his pals next week, Moscow will definitely strike back. Inside the Obama administration, officials are gearing up for an economic Cold War. As Russian tanks amass on the Ukrainian border and John Kerry travels for a last-ditch meeting with his Russian counterpart, signs are increasing that Washington and Moscow are preparing for a series of punitive and retaliatory measures following a planned referendum in Crimea on Sunday. President Obama and his team have repeatedly and loudly warned Vladimir Putin that unless Russia deescalates the current crisis, the U.S. in conjunction with its European partners

Holder backs reduced sentences

Attorney General Eric Holder on Thursday endorsed a proposal that would result in shorter prison sentences for many nonviolent drug traffickers, saying the change would rein in runaway federal prison costs and create a fairer criminal justice system. Holder´s backing for a U.S. Sentencing Commission proposal to lower the guideline penalties is part of a broader Justice Department effort to lessen punishment for nonviolent drug dealers. He has been pressing to ease long mandatory sentences and has called for greater discretion for judges in sentencing. "This overreliance on incarceration is not just financially unsustainable, it comes with human and moral costs that

DES MOINES, Iowa – U.S. Rep. Bruce Braley has extended his lead over the Republican field in an open-seat U.S. Senate race. Braley has a double-digit lead — 12 to 15 percentage points — over most of the largely unknown GOP hopefuls for the seat of Sen. Tom Harkin, who is retiring after five terms, according to a Quinnipiac University Poll released this morning.(Snip)At the time, Peter Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac poll, attributed Braley’s showing to President Barack Obama’s unpopularity. Obama is still unpopular among Iowans, according to Quinnipiac. The president gets a negative 39 to 57 percent

A thunderous explosion in East Harlem sent "people flying out the windows," killing two women, injuring 18 and leaving two buildings in rubble Wednesday morning, according to the Fire Department and witnesses. Mayor de Blasio authorities said the search continued for “a number” of people still unaccounted for three hours after the blast at 9:31 a.m. “There was no warning in advance,” de Blasio said at the scene, adding there was no indication of foul play.

The College Board´s March 5 announcement that the SAT college-admissions exam will undergo a significant overhaul in 2016 has generated no shortage of commentary, some of it praising the changes as a "democratization" of the test. The College Board says it is expanding its outreach to low-income students and shifting from testing abstract-reasoning skills to evidence-based reading, writing and mathematical skills acquired in high school. Ultimately, the exam will look a lot more like the ACT, which has been taking away the SAT´s market share in recent years. The goal, according to College Board President and CEO David Coleman, is to

Joe McGinniss, author of the books "The Selling of the President" and "Fatal Vision," has died at age 71, his friend and attorney said on Monday. McGinniss died of complications from prostate cancer at UMass Memorial Medical Center in Worcester, Massachusetts, lawyer Dennis Holahan said in an email. McGinniss, who had been a Philadelphia newspaper columnist, gained national attention with the 1969 publication of "The Selling of the President." The bestseller gave a behind-the-scenes account of how advertising and media professionals packaged Republican presidential nominee Richard Nixon in his successful 1968 campaign for the White House.

President Obama warned young people that if they don´t sign up for Obamacare by March 31, they will face a penalty -- if they can afford it. During an interview with radio host Ryan Seacrest, Obama explained that young people might be charged a fine if they don´t get insured. "If you can afford it — you just decide you don´t want to get it because your attitude is ´nothing´s ever going to happen to me´ — then you´ll be charged a penalty," Obama explained. Obama was careful to specify that people who can´t afford Obamacare will not suffer a

Police are investigating the possibility that the pilot of missing Flight MH370 hijacked his own aircraft in a bizarre political protest. The Mail on Sunday has learned that Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah was an ‘obsessive’ supporter of Malaysia’s opposition leader, Anwar Ibrahim. And hours before the doomed flight left Kuala Lumpur it is understood 53-year-old Shah attended a controversial trial in which Ibrahim was jailed for five years. Campaigners say the politician, the key challenger to Malaysia’s ruling party, was the victim of a long-running smear campaign and had faced trumped-up charges. Police sources have confirmed that Shah was a vocal political activist

The day before the Iowa caucuses in 2008, I wrote about the massive crowds of young people at Barack Obama rallies, noting that his candidacy would collapse “if they don’t show up.” The next night, after Obama’s victory celebration in Des Moines, Obama strategist Steve Hildebrand spotted me in a crowd. “The kids showed up!” he said fiercely. They did. But where are they now? An army of 15 million voters under 30 swept Obama past Hillary Clinton and John McCain and to the presidency in 2008. More than 12 million helped him return in 2012. But now his presidency is on the line — and the Obama youth are abandoning him in

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) may be popular among hard-line conservatives nationally, but back home he’s in some hot water. According to an Emerson College poll, his favorability is underwater, by a margin of 43 to 48 percent. Moreover, his favorable/unfavorable rating with women is 39 to 50 percent. I asked the poll director for further detail and found: Republicans: 74 percent favorable, 18 percent unfavorable ~Democrats: 8 percent favorable, 82 percent unfavorable ~Independents: 38 percent favorable, 50 percent unfavorable

Nick Rahall trails Republican challenger state Sen. Evan Jenkins by a 54-percent to 40-percent margin. The poll was conducted by the Tarrance Group, a Republican firm which, like several Democratic and other Republican firms, has had a good record for reliability over the years. This is astonishing for several reasons. Rahall, first elected in 1976, is now the seventh most senior member of the House, with three of the more senior members retiring

President Barack Obama hit back at critics calling him out for his "mom jeans. "I´ve been unfairly maligned about my jeans," Obama said Friday in an interview with radio host Ryan Seacrest. "The truth is, generally I look very sharp in jeans. 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 my penance for that. I got whacked pretty good. Since that time, my jeans fit very well."

By now it’s settled on most people, including Democrats, that the loss of Alex Sink to David Jolly in Florida’s 13th Congressional District was, in the words of the New York Times, “devastating” to Democrats. It’s a district Ms. Sink carried in her unsuccessful race for governor against Rick Scott, a district that Barack Obama carried in his two elections, and a district that demographically now favors Democrats. In addition, Ms. Sink raised more money and ran a better campaign than Jolly. Even Bill Clinton lent his efforts to her campaign. And yet she lost. What should particularly alarm Democrats is

Last week, the U.S. Tenth Circuit decided a case that should reverberate on Capitol Hill. In Kerr v. Hickenlooper, five Colorado legislators sought “standing” to challenge a state constitutional amendment. The three-judge panel — consisting of Carter and Clinton appointees — ruled in favor of the legislators’ standing. This decision should embolden members of Congress who correctly believe that President Obama has encroached upon Congress’ constitutional authority. Indeed, Congress should do no less in defending its authority than the five Colorado state legislators.

A top Republican campaigning for immigration reform is warning that America needs at least 1 million more immigrants every year just for basic farming and construction jobs, not ban like some in the party are advocating. Carlos Gutierrez, Commerce secretary under former President George W. Bush, said that without more immigrants, businesses won´t be able to grow because there aren´t enough workers available. And helping them could boost the Republican Party, added the former Kellogg Co. executive. Speaking at a Republican confab, he said that comprehensive immigration reform passed in the Senate and rejected by

That said, there are times anyone less isolated than a Carthusian monk is unavoidably exposed to “news” that 25 years ago would be considered fit only for National Enquirer.

Feliciano said, "It´s about time that South Carolina (says) hey, We´re tired of the ambiguously gay senator from South Carolina. We´re ready for a new leader to merge the Republican Party.
