5 Things You Might Have Missed
from the Clegg-Farage Debate

Breitbart London [UK], by James Delingpole

1. The BBC knows it´s in trouble and is desperate to prove it still has meaning. The BBC did a good job last night, wheeling out its political big gun--David Dimbleby--to moderate in his arch, feline, Flashman-esque way, not showing any noticeable left-wing bias and following up with some integrated coverage from Paxo on BBC Newsnight. But gosh wasn´t the BBC eager to tell us how well it was doing? The BBC stands for everything Farage hates and no doubt cordially loathes Farage. Unfortunately, the way the political debate is changing, the BBC can no longer afford to marginalise its nemesis

President Obama reportedly only ate half of the expensive sushi dinner he was treated to last night in Tokyo. Instead of savoring every morsel of the made-to-order 20-course meal at Sukiyabashi Jiro- dubbed the world´s best sushi restaurant and the subject of the 2011 documentary ´Jiro Dreams of Sushi´- the President reportedly put his chopsticks down after only 10 pieces. The owner of a chicken restaurant that sits in the same basement as the exclusive diner told Tokyo Broadcasting System that Obama stopped at the halfway point even though the famed chef, Jiro Ono, was making each piece especially for

A Department of Justice official told MailOnline on Thursday that looming protests by state lawmakers and a need to protect Attorney General Eric Holder´s image among law enforcement officers caused him to pull out of a planned speech in Oklahoma City. [Snip] That address didn´t occur, however. Seven Oklahoma legislators were preparing to lead a crowd of hundreds in protests across the street, most calling for Holder´s impeachment. ´Look, the attorney general isn´t afraid of a few protesters,´ the DOJ source said. ´But you have to understand that it´s legacy building time around here, and no one wants him to get

Our Typhoon fighters look flashy, but

RAF Typhoons were scrambled yesterday in an impressive show of force to buzz a Russian bomber flying a bit too close to British airspace for comfort. Although the sight of Britain’s most sophisticated fighter jet shadowing the ageing Russian Tupolev-95--a dinosaur from the Cold War--gives the reassuring impression that we have a military edge over Moscow, this image could not be further from the truth. If the worst case scenario in Ukraine were to transpire, tipping the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation into a conventional war to defend Europe against the advancing massed ranks of Russian tank divisions there is little we could

´Guns everywhere!´: Georgia governor

The Peach State is poised to become a petri-dish for the nation´s most ambitious gun-rights experiment, following Gov. Nathan Deal´s signing of a law that will permit concealed-carry permit holders to keep their weapons as they enter non-secure areas of airports, along with some churches and bars, and most government buildings. Lawmakers, which passed the bill by wide bipartisan margins in he waning hours of the year´s legislative session, notably excluded the state capitol where they work from the list of places where pre-vetted Georgians can now pack heat without penalty. Reaction was swift and incendiary. Time magazine called the move

American unreason: why US politics is

This week the National Journal carried a very neat example of the gulf between the moderate "country club" Republican elite and the more conservative blue-collar grassroots that tend to dominate GOP primaries, and then lose general elections in today´s more secular, ethnically diverse America. The piece--well worth reading--tells the story of a US Senate candidate in Georgia who attacked his fellow Republican primary opponents for their lack of education and sophistication, at one point openly mocking the fact that "There´s a high school graduate in the race" and asking how, in a global economy, the semi-educated could possibly bring value

In 2001 when then-Illinois State Senator Barack Obama´s first child was born, it was Obama´s Kenyan aunt Zeituni Onyango who stepped in to help new parents Barack and Michelle. Onyango, who had moved to the United States the year before on a visa, took care of baby Sasha and kept the Obama´s Chicago home in tidy order. [Snip] But the President did not attend the funeral. He hit the links and sent a condolence note, instead, a New York Times profile on Obama´s relationship with his relatives released on Tuesday declares.

An Afghan security guard opened fire on a group of doctors at a Kabul hospital on Thursday morning, killing three American physicians and wounding a U.S. nurse, officials have said. The shooting at Cure International Hospital in western Kabul was the latest in a string of deadly attacks on foreign civilians in the Afghan capital this year. Two of the dead were a visiting father and son, Minister of Health Soraya Dalil said. The other victim was a Cure International doctor who had worked for seven years in Kabul. She said an American nurse had also been wounded in the attack.

The first contingent of US troops has landed in Poland for military exercises amid tensions with Russia over Ukraine. An initial 150 soldiers are to be followed by a further 450 within days. Separately, the UK, Netherlands and Denmark scrambled fighter jets after Russian military aircraft were spotted approaching their airspace. US President Barack Obama accused Russia of flouting last week´s deal on Ukraine. Moscow said it would respond to any attack on its interests there. Speaking on Russian state TV channel RT on Wednesday, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov drew a parallel with the 2008 Georgian war, saying that if

Tony Blair warns against the

Is this his mea culpa?

A lot of people hate Tony Blair, and hate him in particular for what he did in the Middle East, and so when he made a speech today on the need for a broad front to combat Islamism they came out with a torrent of abuse. That is a mistake because most of his speech, properly understood, is a giant mea culpa. Since most people think that this mea culpa is necessary, perhaps they should listen. He is also right – and a lot of his critics would probably agree - that both political and militant Islamism are giant challenges

The search coordination centre said today that police secured the material that washed ashore six miles east of Augusta in Western Australia. The Australian Transport Safety Bureau is examining photographs to assess whether further investigation is needed and if the material is relevant to Flight

Ukraine crisis: US runs the show

Mr Lavrov told Russia Today it was "quite telling" that Kiev had re-launched its anti-terror operation against pro-Russian gunmen during a visit by US Vice-President Joe Biden. Kiev and the West say Moscow commands the gunmen - claims denied by Russia. In the past month, pro-Russian militants have overrun several cities in the eastern Donetsk region. They have occupied public buildings and installed their own officials, in similar tactics to those used to take over the Ukrainian region of Crimea earlier in the year. The US had earlier demanded that Moscow must publicly call for pro-Russian gunmen to lay down their weapons and

First lady Michelle Obama took her campaign to help veterans find jobs to Fort Campbell, Ky.., Wednesday where she said that most Americans don´t know much about the military. Following comments from Jill Biden, the vice president´s wife and Obama´s teammate in helping veterans, she noted that unlike Biden, she had little familiarity with the military prior to campaigning for the White House in 2008. “Unlike Jill, I wasn´t a military mom. I wasn´t a Blue Star family member. I didn´t know much about the military, and I was probably more like the average American,” said Obama.

A prominent Japanese politician has raised hackles as Barack Obama visits Tokyo by claiming it´s an ´open secret´ that he and the first lady are headed for divorce, and that the president has been using Secret Service agents to cover for him as he pursues extramarital affairs. Kazuyuki Hamada, who sits in the upper house of Japan´s parliament, earned his PhD a half-mile from the White House at George Washington University, and emerged as a shrill commentator on America´s economy and foreign policy. In 2009 he also joined the ranks of the so-called ´birthers,´ arguing in a book titled ´Who is Obama?´

Jeb Bush said Wednesday he´s "thinking about running for president," in his most direct statement yet about a possible 2016 run. The former Florida governor spoke at a Catholic school benefit in New York Wednesday morning. He previously has said he´ll make a decision on whether to run for president before the end of this year, making clear that he was considering the possibility. But his comments on Wednesday appeared to be more direct. Asked what his "immediate plans" were, he said, according to an attendee: "I´m thinking about running for president."

WASHINGTON -- In a dissent to Tuesday’s Supreme Court ruling upholding Michigan’s voter-approved ban on affirmative action programs in its public colleges, Justice Sonia Sotomayor speaks from experience about the complex impact of such programs on her own life. Sotomayor’s 58-page dissent, joined by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, has one theme: Race matters. (Snip) She takes a dig at Chief Justice John Roberts who wrote once, “The way to stop discrimination on the basis of race is to stop discrimination on the basis of race.” Sotomayor says: “It is a sentiment out of touch with reality.” Sotomayor says, “Race matters.

Today is Earth Day. Fox News’ The Five opened its show with a nearly 15 minute segment titled “Earth Day Hysteria.” The goal appeared to be to prove that scientists’ warnings about climate change are overblown and should be ignored if not outright mocked and co-host Eric Bolling was the ringleader of the effort. But he found an adversary in Bob Beckel, who challenged the status quo by presenting actual data on the rise of CO2 levels from NASA, of all places. But before Beckel got to his chart, Bolling took some time to “praise” President Barack Obama for what

At least 40 U.S. veterans died waiting for appointments at the Phoenix Veterans Affairs Health Care system, many of whom were placed on a secret waiting list. The secret list was part of an elaborate scheme designed by Veterans Affairs managers in Phoenix who were trying to hide that 1,400 to 1,600 sick veterans were forced to wait months to see a doctor, according to a recently retired top VA doctor and several high-level sources. For six months, CNN has been reporting on extended delays in health care appointments suffered by veterans across the country and who died while waiting for appointments and care.

Justice Sonia Sotomayor’s fierce defense of the affirmative action efforts such as the ones that helped move her from a Bronx housing project to the upper echelons of American law found renewed voice Tuesday in an impassioned dissent that accused colleagues of trying to “wish away” racial inequality — and drew a tart response from Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. In her most personal moment in 41 /2 years on the court, Sotomayor read part of her dissent from the bench to emphasize her disagreement with six colleagues who upheld Michigan’s constitutional amendment banning the consideration of race in public university admissions.

Just three months after Rep. Trey Radel resigned his safe Republican seat in southwest Florida, Republican voters have chosen his likely successor: Curt Clawson. He won the election the old-fashioned way, by making a ton of money in the private sector and then splattering the airwaves with TV ads. In the process, Clawson rolled up endorsements from local Tea Party leaders and from the Tea Party Express. It wasn´t that he was particularly conservative -- he had no prior political record, and had even donated to Democratic Sen. Debbie Stabenow. It was enough, according to the Tea Party Express, that he
