1. Mississippi: Chris McDaniel vs. Thad Cochran: In the early going, tea party-backed state Sen. Chris McDaniel was seen as the strongest challenger to a sitting US senator this cycle. He’s a young (early 40s), energetic trial lawyer and former talk radio host, with six years´ service in the state legislature – and he believes six-term Sen. Thad Cochran (R) is part of the problem in Washington. The challenge for Mr. McDaniel is to persuade enough Republican voters in the June 3 primary to toss out a senior senator who is skilled at bringing federal dollars to Mississippi. McDaniel ran into trouble after qualifying his support for Katrina aid,

Consider the source & what they have to say, but at least know the manes of who´s running in your area. Getting a Sarah Palin "nod" is a plus.

As a former Christian Scientist, thought I´d read this...

Astute LDotters know that Tea Party in a name is no guarantee of a constitutional conservative.

First came reports of a widespread hack of Apple devices in Australia -- the attacker locked the devices remotely and demanded ransom from the owners. Now, CBS Los Angeles reports the scam appears to have reached the U.S. Earlier this week, many Australian owners of Apple devices began discovering that their iPhones, iPads and Macs had been hacked by someone using the name Oleg Pliss. They were directed to a PayPal account and told to send money to have them unlocked, the Sydney Morning Herald reported. A majority of victims affected by the hack so far appear to be from Australia, according to an Apple support thread,

Syrians may have just experienced the first suicide bombing by an American jihadist. Al Qaeda’s official branch in Syria, the Al Nusrah Front, made the statement May 25, the non-profit organization The Long War Journalreported Tuesday. An official with the terrorist organization announced the attack via Twitter, saying that it was done in conjunction with attacks by three other bombers. The Long War Journal reported that the suicide bombing was yet to be confirmed by the groups directly responsible for the attack, but that a picture of “Abu Hurayra Al-Amriki,” (“The American”) was posted on Twitter on Tuesday with the

Columbus, OH - A federal judge has ordered a 2 1/2-month moratorium on executions in Ohio to allow time for arguments over the state´s new lethal injection procedures. The order delays executions scheduled for July and August while attorneys prepare filings about the state´s decision to boost the dosages of its lethal injection drugs. The one-page order by Columbus federal judge Gregory Frost on Tuesday affects the state´s latest death penalty policy change, which was announced in late April. Ohio uses two drugs injected simultaneously in executions. The policy change considerably increases the amount of the sedative and raises the

Miami - A divided Florida appeals court on Wednesday threw out the murder conviction and lengthy prison sentence for a former FBI agent in the decades-old mob-style killing of a gambling executive. The 3rd District Court of Appeal ruled 2-1 that former agent John Connolly was improperly convicted and sentenced to 40 years in prison for his role in the 1982 slaying of World Jai-Alai President John Callahan. A hit man testified in the 2008 trial that he fatally shot Callahan after Connolly tipped Boston mobster James ‘‘Whitey’’ Bulger and his lieutenant, Stephen ‘‘The Riflman’’ Flemmi, that the executive would implicate them in

Secretary of State John Kerry on Wednesday called National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden a fugitive and challenged him to "man up and come back to the United States." Kerry was asked about Snowden in a nationally broadcast interview in the wake of an interview in which Snowden said he never intended to be holed up in Russia but was forced to go there because Washington decided to "revoke my passport." Asked about this, Kerry replied on NBC´s "Today" show: "Well, for a supposedly smart guy, that´s a pretty dumb answer, after all."

Members of America’s Special Operations community are concerned that the hashtag #bringbackourgirls will guilt senior leadership into sending them into a fight in Nigeria. “We’re being tweeted into combat,” a military official toldNBC News Tuesday. Commanders believe that the social media hashtag’s influence might mean U.S. troops are sent to rescue the 276 girls who were kidnapped by the Islamic terrorist group Boko Haram. NBC reported that “two well-placed defense department sources, senior Special Operations commanders” told the news organization that special forces operators were told to “be ready,”

West Point, NY - In a major foreign policy address on Wednesday, President Barack Obama said he will work with Congress to ramp up U.S. support for Syrian opposition groups that are the best alternative to President Bashar al-Assad. "We will step up our efforts to support Syria´s neighbors - Jordan and Lebanon, Turkey and Iraq - as they host refugees, and confront terrorists working across Syrian borders," Obama said in his prepared remarks.

Three days after the White House inadvertently blew the cover of the CIA’s top officer in Kabul, President Obama on Wednesday said his administration is committed to effective intelligence-gathering and protecting “sources and methods” abroad. During an address to graduates at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, the president also said his administration must “clearly and publicly” explain its actions, including drone strikes and the decision to work more closely with Syrian rebels fighting against that country’s president, Bashar al-Assad. His remarks come less than 72 hours after the administration provided to the media a list of U.S. officials who

Washington - President Obama laid out a foreign policy vision on Wednesday for his final two and a half years in office in a speech at the United States Military Academy at West Point. Here are some of his key points: • Mr. Obama rejected the notion that American influence is in decline and said that by most measures, the United States has never been stronger relative to the rest of the world. • He said that the U.S. military remained peerless, and that threats from other nations were minimal. Today’s dangers, he said, pale compared with those of the Cold War. • He emphasized that the United States would not hesitate to use military force when

President Obama’s decision to delay unilateral action on halting deportations isn’t earning him points from Republicans, and it is costing him friends on the other side of the debate, with immigration advocates saying it means thousands of immigrants will be kicked out of the country every day. United We Dream, a group that has been begging for Mr. Obama to halt deportations, said it was “outraged” at the president’s move. “To say that we can wait is to be complacent with the more than 60,000 deportations that will happen between now and August,” Lorella Praeli, the groups director of policy and advocacy, said in a statement

The Obama administration will next week unveil a cornerstone of its climate-change initiative with a proposed rule aimed at allowing states to use cap-and-trade systems, renewable energy and other measures to meet aggressive goals for reducing carbon emissions by existing power plants. (Snip) But the proposal is designed to give states, which will administer the regulations, flexibility to meet the benchmarks, as opposed to placing emissions limits on individual plants, according to people familiar with the Environmental Protection Agency´s work on the rule. Central to the strategy of flexibility: the option to include a cap-and-trade component where a

Donetsk, Ukraine - Ukraine´s president-elect said Monday he wants to begin talks with Moscow and end a pro-Russia insurgency in the east, but the rebels escalated the conflict by occupying a major airport, and the government in Kiev responded with an airstrike. (Snip) The rebels, who declared independence for Donetsk and the neighboring Luhansk region after a hastily called and dubious referendum two weeks ago, regarded Sunday´s election of candy tycoon Petro Poroshenko as president to be illegitimate. In a victory speech, the billionaire promised to open a dialogue with residents of eastern Ukraine and to guarantee their rights.

If we were living in normal times, the following scandals and failures — without going into foreign policy — would have ruined a presidency to the point of reducing it to Nixon, Bush, or Truman poll ratings. Think of the following: the Fast and Furious scandal, the VA mess, the tapping of the communications of the Associated Press reporters, the NSA monitoring, Benghazi in all of its manifestations, the serial lies about Obamacare, the failed stimuli, the chronic zero interest/print money policies, the serial high unemployment, the borrowing of $7 trillion to no stimulatory effect, the spiraling national debt, the customary

One government agency has decided that the results of employee ratings are too discriminatory, and eliminated the process entirely. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau announced on Monday that it will now award all employees the highest rating regardless of performance reviews. The CFPB, which oversees transactions in the financial sector for the federal government, decided to no longer conduct employee reviews because there were just too many apparent “significant disparities” between the races, ages, and locations of its employees. According to American Banker, this new policy is set to cost over $5 million

First Lady Michelle Obama is moving to quell the revolt against the school meal nutrition standards that she helped set in place. House Republicans are supporting a measure that would allow some school districts to opt out of the standards—if they can prove that it is affecting their school budgets. In response, Michelle Obama is scheduled to meet with school leaders and experts on nutrition Tuesday to discuss the importance of federal regulation of school meals. The strict rules, passed in 2010, limit the amount of fat, calories, sugar, and sodium served during school meals and requires more whole grains. “Mrs. Obama will stress

Great lives, fully lived, cast long shadows. Fifty years after his death, it’s not unusual to hear people rank Douglas MacArthur among America’s worst generals—alongside Benedict Arnold and William Westmoreland. His critics say he was insubordinate and arrogant, callous in dealing with dissent, his Korean War command studded with mistakes. “MacArthur could never see another sun, or even a moon for that matter, in the heavens, as long as he was the sun,” once said President Eisenhower, who had served under MacArthur in the Pacific. Some of what the critics say is undoubtedly true, but much of what they say

The White House has launched an internal probe after its press office inadvertently outed the top CIA official in Afghanistan -- a national security blunder that could put that individual at risk. A spokeswoman with the National Security Council confirmed to Fox News that the White House chief of staff asked White House Counsel Neil Eggleston to “look into what happened” and make recommendations on “how the administration can improve processes and make sure something like this does not happen again.” The brief statement from the National Security Council was the first on-the-record comment made by the administration since the

Maya Angelou, a renowned poet, novelist and actress whose work defied description under a simple label, has died, her literary agent, Helen Brann, said Wednesday. She died at her home in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, Brann said. A professor, singer and dancer, Angelou´s work spans several professions. In 2011, President Barack Obama awarded her with the Medal of Freedom, the country´s highest civilian honor. She spent her early years studying dance and drama in San Francisco, but dropped out at age 14, instead becoming the city´s first African-American female cable car conductor.

Give Barack Obama credit. He never claimed he had the executive experience many Americans feel is essential for a president. Go back to October 2006. There was much buzz that Sen. Obama, newly arrived in Washington, would run for the White House. "You´ve been a United States senator less than two years, you don´t have any executive experience. Are you ready to be president?" the late Tim Russert asked Obama on NBC."Well, I´m not sure anybody is ready to be president before they´re president," Obama responded. "You know, ultimately, I trust the judgment of the American people." That didn´t exactly

Why would I regret it?” Tuesday, Trump alluded to a promotional booklet revealed by Breitbart in May 2012 and produced in 1991 by Acton & Dystel that asserted Obama was born in Kenya. Miriam Goderich, who was an agency assistant at the time told Yahoo News that month that the claim amounted to a fact-checking error on her part. In

Zahra Billoo, the radical executive-director of CAIR’s San Francisco Bay Area chapter, tweeted that she “struggles with Memorial Day each year.” Billoo also retweeted radical comments from CAIR official Dawud Walid from Michigan and radical Islamist poet Remi Kanazi. The Clarion Project reported: The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a group labeled by the Justice Department as a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity and unindicted co-conspirator in a terrorism-financing trial, disingenuously claims that it is a moderate organization. Yet, on May 23, Zahra Billoo, the radical executive-director of CAIR’s San Francisco Bay Area chapter, tweeted that she “struggles with Memorial Day each year” about whether

This weekend we celebrate Memorial Day in honor of our American servicemen and women who have sacrificed their lives defending us both at home and abroad. Many of our troops enlist in the military upon adulthood and have served in wars before their classmates have even graduated from college. These men and women are true American heroes and we must protect them just as well as they protect us. Unfortunately, despite President Obama’s Memorial Day proclamation that we shall “never forget” the sacrifices of our soldiers, he and Secretary of State John Kerry have forgotten about a living American hero in

The most striking revelation about Elliot Rodger, the alleged Santa Barbara shooter, is that he had been in therapy for most of his life. A family friend said Rodger had been seeing a therapist since the age of eight. Apparently he had visited a therapist "virtually every day" during his high school years. By the time of the massacre and suicide at the University of Santa Barbara over the weekend, when he was 22, Rodger reportedly had "multiple therapists." Today it has been revealed that so central were his therapists to his daily existence that he emailed his hateful 141-page manifesto to

Cliven Bundy, the Nevada rancher who gained notoriety in April for his standoff with the Bureau of Land Management, has announced he is leaving the Republican Party. The 68-year-old rancher, who owes the BLM nearly $1 million in grazing fees, won early praise from GOP lawmakers for his standoff with armed Interior Department officers. Republicans later distanced themselves from Bundy after he suggested "the negro" was better off a slave. Bundy and his wife Carol signed new registration forms at an event held by the Independent American Party. The event was billed by organizers as a celebration of Bundy´s "courage
