Starting next month, all
D.C. licenses will need to
be replaced. Yes, all of them.

Washington Post, by Rachel Sadon

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 4/21/2014 4:43:39 PM

There’s no good way to break it to you, D.C. license holders. You’re going to have to make a trip to the DMV, all 540,000 of you. Starting May 1, the District will start issuing REAL ID licenses that conform to stringent federal regulations, the Department of Motor Vehicles announced last week. Any driver’s license issued before that date will need to be replaced by Oct. 1, to enter certain federal buildings and by 2016 to board a domestic flight (alternatively, a passport can still be used). All other licenses, permits and identification cards issued by the DMV also are affected by the new regulations.

Comments:
When i lived there forty years ago, the statistics were that DC had an 80% black population. If the mostly dRATS voting block whines about showing identification to vote, why are they not fighting this intrusion to their lives? They have to leave home to create the ID´s, after all. Think the GOP can now get this absurd "issue´ off the table when people to vote? There´s been a federal law in place since 2005.

FTA: "... stringent federal regulations, the Department of Motor Vehicles announced last week."


Wait - the FED has a DMV? And where and when and how did the Fed become the authority for what a DL has to look like?

Benghazi suspect will face civilian court
Washington Times, by Maggie Ybarra    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 6/19/2014 10:53:44 PM     Post Reply
The Obama administration is looking at expediting the movement of Ahmed Abu Khatallah, the suspected ringleader of the 2012 Benghazi attacks, onto U.S. soil from the Navy ship where he is currently being held in the Mediterranean Sea, Defense Department officials said Thursday. Military leaders and Department of Justice personnel are mulling plans to use a military aircraft or charter plane to bring Khatallah to a prison inside the United States. (Snip) The administration has announced that Khatallah will face trial in a federal civilian court rather than being brought before a military tribunal-style court at Guantanamo Bay — like a small

Washington - For 3-1/2 years, Jay Carney was the bespectacled, youthful-looking man on the podium, taking incoming from an information-hungry White House press corps. Now his tour as President Obama’s press secretary is over, and at a breakfast with reporters Thursday hosted by The Christian Science Monitor, (Snip) White House reporters, including his former self, “make assumptions about control and process and intent” that don’t account for the reality: that “a lot of these issues have to be decided … by a handful of people sitting in a room who are dealing with the best collection of facts that they might be able to get.”

Darrell Issa calls White House
attorney on IRS email loss

House Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa is hauling in a former IRS counsel-turned-White House attorney to testify on the disappeared Lois Lerner emails. The California Republican on Thursday evening requested Jennifer O’Connor of the White House Counsel’s office to testify on Tuesday morning about her knowledge of the crashed hard drive of ex-IRS tax exempt chief Lerner. The IRS says the crash erased two years’ worth of Lerner’s emails just when the IRS was beginning to pull conservative social welfare groups for additional scrutiny. (Snip) Issa suspects O’Connor, a former partner at D.C.’s WilmerHale, may have known about the

“Mitt Romney? Well, at least he still looks the part,” says one New England-based voter who is not surprised with a few startling numbers out of New Hampshire. Garnering 24 percent of the support among likely GOP voters, Mr. Romney led a list of 14 potential Republican presidential hopefuls by a mammoth margin in the Granite State. His nearest competition was New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who got 9 percent, Sen. Rand Paul with 8 percent, Jeb Bush with 6 percent and — what’s this — Jon Huntsman got 5 percent. “Mitt Romney clears the field. It could be because the field is weak or because the voters see Romney as somebody

U.S. Targets Aid in Uganda, Cancels
Military Exercise Over Homosexuality Law

Washington - The United States on Thursday cut aid to Uganda, imposed visa restrictions and canceled a regional military exercise in response to a Ugandan law that imposes harsh penalties on homosexuality. The White House said in a statement the measures were intended to "reinforce our support for human rights of all Ugandans regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity." Homosexuality is taboo in most African countries and illegal in 37, including in Uganda where it has been a crime since British rule. Uganda´s new law, signed by President Yoweri Museveni in February, imposes jail terms of up to life for "aggravated homosexuality"

The fate of the state of Iraq hangs in the balance, US President Barack Obama said at the White House on Thursday, announcing military preparations for "targeted and precise" kinetic action against ISIS, a terrorist militia conquering territory in eastern Syria and northern Iraq. Iraqi leaders "don´t have a lot of time," Obama said, warning that the country might once again descend into civil war. While Obama has not yet ordered military action, he positioned assets in the region for a strike, he said. Obama also announced that 300 military advisers would be deployed to Iraq to advise and train officials there.

The mother of U.S. Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi, who has been jailed in Mexico since March 31, says she has not heard from the Obama administration since her son’s imprisonment. Pressure continues to mount for the president to take action in securing the release of Mr. Tahmooressi, who says he got lost and took a wrong turn into Mexico while carrying three firearms in his truck. Jill Tahmooressi, the veteran’s mother, said she hasn’t heard from the White House or the State Department, despite the nearly 125,000 signatures she’s received on her “We the People” petition, which should entitle her to an official

Mobile, Ala. - A federal judge in Alabama has dismissed a Catholic broadcaster´s legal claim that requiring employers to include contraception in their health care coverage is unconstitutional. U.S. District Judge Callie Granade acted Wednesday on the lawsuit filed by the Eternal Word Television Network, which has studios in a Birmingham suburb. The broadcasting group said it will appeal. Dozens of church-related organizations have filed suit over the law across the country. Like those groups, EWTN contends the government is violating its rights by requiring employers to provide health care coverage that includes

What to Call Iraq Fighters?

Everyone seems to agree that the Sunni extremists who are striving to carve out a caliphate in Syria and Iraq have upended the region, but there is no consensus on what to call the militant group, in English at least. Many news outlets, including The New York Times, have been translating the group’s name as the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, or ISIS for short. But the United States government and several news agencies call it the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant, or I.S.I.L. (The BBC, curiously, uses the ISIS acronym, but “Levant” when spelling the name out.) Neither way is an exact rendering of the group’s Arabic name,

Only a few days after graduating from Temple University, one of my former students headed off to Syria to report on the civil war there. Jad Sleiman, 25, speaks Arabic and wanted to show what he considered the face of the Syrian resistance — not the fighters from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. He stayed with Harakat Hazm, which means “The Steadfastness Movement” in English, just outside of Aleppo. (Snip) The members of Harakat Hazm despise the terror tactics of ISIL, including the butchery of captured soldiers. “What was interesting was how hated these people were by the more moderate people,” Mr. Sleiman said in the

Free pregnancy tests will be available in women´s restrooms at 20 Alaskan bars and restaurants starting this December. Researchers from the University of Alaska will study whether the free tests, when paired with messages about fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASD), are successful at raising public awareness about the perils of drinking while pregnant. "We´re trying to get prevention messages out to women so that women understand how important it is to not drink during pregnancy," Janet Johnston, a University of Alaska professor who designed the project, told USA Today Network.

Redskins lose trademark, Harry Reid
says team will be ´forced´ to change name

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.

WASHINGTON — The White House said Wednesday it has found no emails between any person in the executive office of the president and a top Internal Revenue Service official who has been connected to the improper scrutiny of political groups. White House spokesman Jay Carney said the White House searched for all communications between the former IRS official, Lois Lerner, and executive office personnel. "We found zero emails," he said. He said the search discovered three emails in which a third party emailed both Lerner and executive office staff. He said one was spam and two others were from a person seeking

It has become a daily frightening occurrence, hearing politicians, commentators, pundits, and stunned Americans say, “That´s outrageous!” “He can´t do that!” “No way!” “It´s against federal law!” “They have no legal authority to force us to do that!” These comments are in response to the daily unprecedented out-of-control tyranny handed down by Obama and his operatives. We are talking arrogance with a capital A coming out of the Obama administration. For example: the GOP was moving too slow in caving to Obama´s amnesty scheme, so Obama said, Heck with it, I´ll bypass everyone and make it happen. Obama sent a

Washington -- I´ll let you know what´s going on, but I don´t need new congressional authority to act, President Barack Obama told congressional leaders Wednesday about his upcoming decision on possible military intervention in Iraq. The White House meeting sounded more like a listening session for the top Republicans and Democrats in the House and Senate about options for helping Iraq´s embattled Shiite government halt the lightning advance of Sunni Islamist fighters toward Baghdad that Obama is considering. According to a White House statement, Obama went over U.S. efforts to "strengthen the capacity of Iraq´s security forces to confront the threat" from

At a time when debate is swirling over the assertion that 97 percent of scientists endorse man-made global warming, Secretary of State John Kerry – a frequent citer of the 97 percent figure – in a speech Wednesday nudged the figure up to “at least 98, 99 percent.” “When it comes to climate change, when it comes to food security, we are literally facing a moment of adversity – perhaps even dire necessity,” Kerry said at a State Department food security award ceremony. “It’s hard to convince people – hard to convince people of a challenge that isn’t immediately tangible

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 — 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

President Obama´s approval rating has dropped to 41 percent, a majority of Americans disapprove of his handling of foreign policy issues, he has lost support from the Hispanic community and Americans actually think his administration is less competent than the Bush White House post-Hurricane Katrina, according to a new survey from the Wall Street Journal and NBC News. In short, the poll is nothing but bad news for the president. The survey would appear to be so bad, in fact, that NBC News´ Chuck Todd said Tuesday that the poll basically means the public has declared the Obama presidency to be

Former Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer apparently doesn’t think Southern men are manly. Following Virginia Rep.
