Russian Regular Forces To Invade
"NewRussia" Between May 4 And 9?

Forbes, by Paul Roderick Gregory

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 4/20/2014 5:37:58 AM

This “Open Letter to the Friends of Ukraine,” by a guest columnist who writes under the pen name of Irina Gokieli, dated April 19, offers the author’s pessimistic scenario of forthcoming events in what Vladimir Putin now calls “NewRussia.” “NewRussia” encompasses southeastern Ukraine and parts of Moldova. She predicts an invasion by regular Russian troops near the end of the first week of May under the pretext of restoring order, although she does not rule out, as an alternative, an alliance of Putin with certain Ukrainian politicians and oligarchs. Notably the author makes a persuasive case that the long-term consequences

Texas officials announce border
security surge to stem immigrant tide
Los Angeles Times, by Molly Hennessy-Fiske    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 6/19/2014 5:31:06 AM     Post Reply
Texas Gov. Rick Perry and other state officials have authorized the Texas Department of Public Safety to begin emergency “surge operations” along the border with Mexico in response to an influx of immigrants making the illegal crossing, mostly women and children from Central America. State leaders authorized the department to spend on the surge as needed and provided an additional $1.3 million per week, according to a statement Perry’s office released late Wednesday. Department officials will be expected to report results of the surge to the governor and Legislature "periodically," the statement said. "Texas can´t afford to wait for Washington

Blackwater Murder Trial
Wall Street Journal, by Andrew Grossman    Original Article

Four former guards for security contractor Blackwater USA–now called Academi–are on trial in Washington for an array of charges related to a September 2007 incident in busy Nisour Square, a traffic circle in Baghdad, that left 14 people dead. Amid renewed violence in Iraq, testimony in the long-delayed trial is revisiting a painful episode that harmed both the image of the U.S. and Blackwater in the country. Over the next few months, a jury will hear evidence supporting two starkly different versions of what happened on a bloody afternoon half a world away, then try to figure out which one

The Botched Recovery from Superstorm Sandy
American Interest, by Walter Russell Mead    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 6/19/2014 4:56:43 AM     Post Reply
A dangerous storm destroys or damages the homes of entire communities. Hundreds of thousands languish in the storm’s aftermath while waiting for federal and state aid to help them rebuild. Governmental incompetence prolongs the recovery period indefinitely. This sounds like the story of Hurricane Katrina, but could apply equally as well to the saga of superstorm Sandy. When the storm hit in 2012, damaging around 200,000 homes in New York and New Jersey, President Obama said, “My message to the federal government: No bureaucracy, no red tape.” But seventeen months later, the reality has been vastly different, according a new WSJ

Democratic Party Giving Away
Hillary´s ´Hard Choices´

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is giving away a signed copy of Hillary Clinton´s latest memoir, Hard Choices. In an email sent out to the DCCC´s list, Nancy Pelosi says the book will be given to someone who signs an e-card thanking Clinton for serving this nation. "Hillary has just released a fabulous memoir on her time serving as Secretary of State," reads the email that sounds like a promotion. "As the title suggests, ´Hard Choices´ offers an extraordinary glimpse into the tough calls that she confronted on behalf of the American people. On a whole range of issues -- from climate

Dallas County commissioners
unwittingly back slavery reparations
Morning News [Dallas, TX], by Matthew Watkins    Original Article

The Dallas County Commissioners Court declared Tuesday that African-Americans deserve reparations for slavery, even though most commissioners didn’t seem to know that they were doing so. The issue arose in a resolution written by John Wiley Price, the county’s only black commissioner. Described only as a “Juneteenth Resolution,” it was approved unanimously. Other commissioners admitted after their meeting Tuesday that they hadn’t read the document before voting for it. Commissioner Mike Cantrell, the court’s lone Republican, later changed his vote to an abstention. “The reason why I didn’t abstain this morning is that I had not received a copy of




Why People Zone Out on Hillary

Hillary Clinton — the woman assumed to be the next Democratic Party presidential nominee and quite possibly the next president — is evidently a big snooze. According to Mediate, her interviews to promote her book on CNN and Fox had underwhelming numbers. In the case of Greta Van Susteren’s show, she sent people fleeing midway. More importantly, her book itself is a sales disappointment and, I would wager, even more disappointing if you could ascertain how many who did buy it read actually past page 15. I wouldn’t be surprised if it was in single digits. No, I haven’t read it

Paging Rose Mary Woods: Obama’s
Unbelievable Missing IRS Emails

The IRS scandal’s back, with Lois Lerner mislaying two years of communiqués—just like Nixon’s secretary and her erased tapes. But the presidential characters couldn’t be more different. For a very 21st-century president like Barack Obama, there is something especially embarrassing about the return of the very 20th-century IRS scandal. As if the allegations of targeting political enemies weren’t enough, now the president must contend with missing emails. Reminiscent of nothing so much as Nixon secretary Rose Mary Woods’s infamous selective erasures of her boss’s tapes, today’s sought-after communiqués are, we are told, victim of a crashed computer and a failed hard drive,

Good for President Obama — and the team of Special Forces and FBI agents that pulled off a secret raid in Libya to capture a man who helped direct the 2012 attack in which our ambassador and three other Americans were murdered. As a result of their daring and bravery, Ahmed Abu-Khattala, who was seen by eyewitnesses directing that assault, is now in custody. Khattala is a leader of Ansar al-Sharia, an Islamist group whose aim is to impose strict sharia law on all Libya. For the past year or so, he has lived openly in Libya, taunting America from Benghazi cafés

Surge of unaccompanied immigrant children
is pushing Texas border patrol to its limits

In a stark, concrete room at the Fort Brown Border Patrol Station in Brownsville, Tex., dozens of young girls sleep, crowded shoulder-to-shoulder, under American Red Cross blankets. Small milk cartons are scattered along the edge of the room. One girl, who looks to be in her early teens, holds a very young child on her lap. These girls are among about 500 immigrants detained here - double the capacity of the station. Some are among the more than 47,000 unaccompanied minors apprehended at the southernmost border of the U.S. this year, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection. In the next room,

Many of President Obama’s foreign policy failures are the product of his badly misguided ideology. But some flow simply from his inability to understand how the world works. (The two defects are, of course, related). Take the current crisis in Iraq. The country is disintegrating, Iraqi soldiers are deserting, some of those who aren’t have been executed barbarically, and Baghdad is under serious threat. What does Obama do? He urges Prime Minister Maliki to make his government more inclusive of his political opponents and to loosen his grip on power. To appreciate the foolishness of this response, consider how Obama behaves in response

"Representatives at the national VA declined to comment on the record for this story," the Daily Beast informed us late last month.

Those are the first three of some 70 no-comments compiled by the House Veterans´ Affairs Committee for a webpage optimistically titled "VA Honesty Project," whose purpose is "to highlight the Department of Veterans Affairs´ lack of transparency with the press and the public about its operations and

WASHINGTON -- The U.S. Patent Office ruled Wednesday that the Washington Redskins nickname is "disparaging of Native Americans" and that the team´s federal trademarks for the name must be canceled. The 2-1 ruling comes after a campaign to change the name has gained momentum over the past year. The team doesn´t immediately lose trademark protection and is allowed to retain it during an appeal. Redskins owner Daniel Snyder has refused to change the team´s name, citing tradition, but there has been growing pressure including statements in recent months from President Barack Obama, lawmakers of both parties and civil rights groups.

Redskins lose trademark, Harry Reid

In what some see as the first step to forcing the Washington Redskins football team to change their name, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on Wednesday cancelled six federal trademarks of the team name because it´s “disparaging” to Native Americans. “Petitioners have shown by a preponderance of the evidence that a substantial composite of Native Americans found the term REDSKINS to be disparaging,” said the decision. Fans, however, won’t see any immediate change — even if Daniel Snyder’s team eventually loses in court. That’s because all the order will do is eliminate the trademark the team has on merchandise. The Redskins are expected to appeal.

Megyn Kelly opened her show tonight tearing into the Obama White House for what increasingly looks like an “imploding” presidency, given scandal after scandal after scandal the White House has found itself engulfed in, both domestically and abroad. Kelly opened with this simply question: “Is Barack Obama‘s presidency imploding?” She cited the bewildering fact that the U.S. may ally with Iran to deal with the situation in Iraq, and ripped Obama in particulas as “a president who has lost the trust of the American people by repeatedly misleading them.” She went down a list of scandal after scandal that the president has

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney explained that President Obama is fully engaged in the situation in Iraq – even though he spent last weekend golfing. Carney was asked about former Vice President Dick Cheney’s op-ed in The Wall Street Journal criticizing the President for golfing instead of paying attention to world affairs. “I think it’s pretty clear that this President has been paying close attention to this and has been engaging regularly with his national security team,” Carney said, praising Obama for deliberating carefully about the use of force in Iraq.

Hillary Clinton´s minions are hard at work assembling a political machine and fine tuning it for another go at the White House. Mrs. Clinton is doing her part preparing for a run as well, churning out a bland memoir about the "hard choices" she faced as secretary of state and coyly positioning herself (again) as the inevitable nominee of the party. But after the troubled beginning to her book tour, we´re beginning to see the reasons why Hillary may eventually decide to pull the plug on a 2016 presidential run. Here are five: 1) She´s just not that good at campaigning. If the last two gaffe-prone weeks have reminded us of anything about Hillary,

Yesterday, it was announced the Obama administration had moved on Sunday to arrest a Benghazi al-Qaeda leader Ahmed Abu Khattala. Many people, including Fox’s James Rosen pointed particular questions to the State Dept. about “why now”? As unbelievable as this might sound, the most likely answer has little to do with what’s currently being pondered as a motive for this administration, “squirrel”. The reality is within the Bergdahl deal, and the GITMO-5 to Qatar, there is a far more likely reason.Ahmed Abu Khattala is directly connected to the covert transfer of U.S. arms from Qatar to Libya in the initial 2011

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin blasted the Republican establishment on Tuesday for spending more time trying to tear down Mississippi conservative Senate candidate Chris McDaniel than combating President Barack Obama´s lawlessness at home and incompetence abroad. Days before the Mississippi runoff, establishment Republicans have been trying to save incumbent Sen. Thad Cochran (R-MS) by painting McDaniel as "unelectable" in a general election in one of the most reliably conservative states in the nation. Palin said that if "the national GOP machine spent as much time fighting President Obama´s disastrous and

Former secretary of State Hillary Clinton said while there are many Democratic women who are qualified to run for president in 2016, she may be the only one with the experience to do it. In an interview with Canadian network CBC, Clinton said she’s “well aware” of the expectation women have for her to run. “I’m incredibly touched by it and feel responsible because of it,” she said. “And I know that it’s important that we break that highest and hardest glass ceiling.

U.S. Special Operations forces captured one of the suspected ringleaders of the terrorist attacks in Benghazi in a secret raid in Libya over the weekend, the first time one of the accused perpetrators of the 2012 assault has been apprehended, according to U.S. officials. The officials said Ahmed Abu Khattala was captured near Benghazi by American troops, working alongside the FBI, following months of planning, and was now in U.S. custody “in a secure location outside Libya.” The officials said there were no casualties in the operation, and that all U.S. personnel involved have safely left Libya.

The FDA, perhaps still smarting from the recent artisanal cheese kerfuffle, is setting its sights on a bigger target: salt. “The current level of [sodium] consumption is really higher than it should be,” said FDA commissioner Margaret Hamburg. That’s why they’re preparing “voluntary guidelines” for the food industry encouraging them to stay below certain salt levels. While the guidelines will initially be voluntary, health groups are lobbying for mandatory standards–lobbying that will only grow more intense if businesses refuse to comply once the standards are released. If businesses don’t go light on the salt “then FDA should start a

Speaking on his radio show on Tuesday, conservative commentator Glenn Beck delivered a rare admission, saying that the latest disorder in Iraq is yet more proof that liberals who opposed the invasion in 2003 were right all along. “[Liberals] said we couldn’t force freedom on people,” Beck, who initially supported the Iraq War, reminded his listeners. “Let me lead with my mistakes. You were right. Liberals, you were right; we shouldn’t have.” Beck went on to note that “most people on the left” thought waging war on Iraq was a bad idea “from the beginning.”
