Hillary Clinton under fire after Boeing
gave her foundation $900,000 weeks
after she made ´shameless pitch´
for company to a Russian airline
Daily Mail [UK], by David Martosko    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 4/29/2014 2:00:03 PM     Post Reply
During a Boeing shareholder meeting on Monday,a conservative activist accused the aircraft company´s CEO of buying then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton´s ´commercial advocacy´ in Russia by making a $900,000 donation to the Clinton Foundation. The money was earmarked for rebuilding schools in Haiti in the wake of a devastating 2010 earthquake. But the contribution came just months after Mrs. Clinton traveled to Moscow where she made what she called a ´shameless pitch´ to ask a newly formed state-owned airline ´to buy Boeing aircraft.´ [Snip] Boeing ultimately won a $3.7 billion Russian contract.

Britain has just witnessed a political
arrest. Where is the liberal outrage?

Over the weekend, a candidate was arrested for addressing his potential voters. Clear aside the incidental details, scrape away the mitigating circumstances, and ponder that elemental fact. Paul Weston, standing for election to the European Parliament (against me, as it happens, in the South East) was arrested in the middle of a speech on the steps of the Winchester Guildhall. To repeat, a candidate was arrested for making a hustings speech. [Snip] It is perfectly true that the candidate was attempting to provoke. He almost certainly set out with the intention of getting himself in trouble, thereby publicising his message

Protestors Picket Britain´s Law
Society Over Sharia Implementation

Protesters picketed Britain´s Law Society last night after it was revealed that the group has taken a step towards assisting the implementation of Sharia law in Britain. Last month the Law Society issued guidance on Sharia wills, now it is offering a training course on the subject. [Snip] The protestors last night expressed concerns that, for the first time, a major legal body is giving credibility to rules that justify discrimination against women and ´illegitimate children´. One protester told the group: "We have to be clear that we are not anti-Muslim, it is Muslim women who suffer the most under

John Kerry backs away from Israel
´apartheid´ comment after he is

he doesn´t apologise

Secretary of State John Kerry has said he chose the wrong word in describing Israel´s potential future after being criticised for saying the Jewish state could become an ´apartheid state´ if it does not reach a peace deal with the Palestinians. In a statement released yesterday by the State Department, Kerry lashed out against ´partisan political´ attacks against him, but acknowledged his comments last week to a closed international forum could have been misinterpreted. He pointedly did not apologize for the remarks, but stressed he was, and is, a strong supporter of Israel, which he called a ´vibrant democracy.´

Protetsors have clashed with riot police in the Philippines during a visit by Barack Obama over a defence deal that would give U.S. troops greater access to the country´s military bases. Activists burned mock U.S. flags while chanting ´Nobama, no bases, no war´ outside the presidential palace in the capital, Manila, where the President was meeting his counterpart Benigno Aquino. Around 800 people violently reacted to the 10-year pact signed between Washington and Manila that they believe is a step back to when it was an American colony before the Second World War. Filipinos ripped up barbed wire and used

Rio 2016: IOC vice-president says

Preparations for the 2016 Rio Olympics are the "worst" ever seen, according to International Olympic Committee vice-president John Coates. The Australian said the IOC has taken "unprecedented" action by placing experts in the local organising committee to ensure the Games go ahead. "The situation is critical on the ground," he said. [Snip] He added that one of the experts embedded in the local committee was a construction project manager. "The IOC has adopted a more hands-on role," said Coates. "It is unprecedented for the IOC but there is no Plan B. We are going to Rio."

Israel: John Kerry´s inflammatory

John Kerry, the US Secretary of State, has made a commendable attempt to end the rancorous dispute between Israel and the Palestinians. [Snip] Having expended so much effort, it is only natural that Mr Kerry should feel a deep sense of frustration that the talks--as so many predicted--have run into the ground after Benjamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister, last week announced the suspension of his country’s participation. This was in response to the united accord struck by Mahmoud Abbas, the leader of the Palestinian Authority, with the Islamist Hamas group, which Israel considers a terrorist organisation.

Atlanta weather:

A few western Georgia counties got a glimpse of potentially deadly weather Monday night. But forecasters caution that the worst is yet to come for metro Atlanta. In anticipation of the storms, Gov. Nathan Deal declared a state of emergency Monday night, which frees up all state resources needed for both preparation and response in the counties hardest hit. “At this juncture, we’ve declared the emergency for the entire state because it’s impossible to pinpoint where the weather will hit,” Deal said in statement posted online. “Georgia is threatened at least through (Tuesday) and perhaps into Wednesday. We’re prepared now

A band of twisters and thunderstorms ravaged Mississippi Monday, killing at least six people, gutting homes and tearing down businesses in the north and central parts of the state in what state officials called the most active tornado day in Mississippi history. Somewhere between six and a dozen tornadoes bludgeoned the state, moving Gov. Phil Bryant to declare a state of emergency in Mississippi Monday night. There were 23 tornado warnings issued in the state early Monday evening. Although National Weather Service meteorologist Brad Bryant said it will be impossible to confirm how many tornadoes touched down in the state

A candidate in the European elections was arrested on suspicion of racial harrassment after quoting a passage about Islam, written by Winston Churchill, during a campaign speech. Paul Weston, chairman of the party Liberty GB, made the address on the steps of Winchester Guildhall, in Hampshire on Saturday. A member of the public took offence at the quote, taken from Churchill´s The River War and called police. The passage from the book, written by the wartime Prime Minister and first published in 1899, focuses on Churchill´s observations about Islam while serving during the Anglo-Egyptian reconquest of the Sudan.

With his “gold-digger” ex-girlfriend holding 100 hours of damning, unreleased tape recordings, babbling billionaire bigot Donald Sterling is pleading for the mercy rule. The 80-year-old Los Angeles Clippers owner has reached out to the attorney of his 31-year-old former mistress, V. Stiviano, begging, “How can we make this go away?” according to a report. Sterling is scrambling to salvage his reputation and hang on to his team after recordings surfaced over the weekend that revealed him launching a racist tirade about Stiviano publicly associating with African-American athletes.

Knicks executive and former player Larry Johnson had a decidedly different but still strong reaction to the racially insensitive remarks Clippers owner Donald Sterling is alleged to have made. On Saturday night, Johnson tweeted: “Black people your Focusing on the wrong thing. We should be focusing on having our own, Own team own League! To For Self!!’’ The initial indication was Johnson was calling for an all-African-American league complete with black ownership. It wasn’t the first time Johnson, who is black, concerned himself with the fact the NBA’s ownership is mostly white while its players are mostly black.

On the heels of the canonization of Popes John XXIII and John Paul II, Pope Francis sent a tweet from his verified Twitter account declaring, “Inequality is the root of social evil.” (Snip) Pope Francis’s tweet echoes President Barack Obama’s statement that income inequality is “the defining challenge of our time.” However, Obama´s own pollster, Joel Benenson, told reporters at a Democratic gathering that he believes "the attention on inequality is a bit over-hyped." Economists attribute a host of micro and macro factors to explaining the accelerated gains of top earners. A new study by an international team of economists led by

Torrance, CA - Toyota Motor Corp´s decision to move its North American sales headquarters from California to Texas was met by disbelief in Torrance, this Los Angeles exurb where the Japanese car manufacturer has run its U.S. operations since 1982. Torrance Mayor Frank Scotto, looking grim, said outside city hall on Monday that he had been blindsided by the move. A few feet away sat Pat Simpson, a Torrance resident for over 60 years, with her head in her hands. "Why do they want to tear this place apart?" Simpson, 72, asked. Scotto said his first inkling of Toyota´s decision to move to

When Sonia Sotamayor, the self-proclaimed ´wise Latina´ was nominated and confirmed to the Supreme Court, I was asked to write an op-ed because of our similar backgrounds. I am about ten years her senior and those ten years and the different paths we took explain the wide gulf between our political perspectives, however, I had hopes that her early years in Catholic schools would have left a deeper impression on her principles. Alas, her diatribe about the recent anti-affirmative action ruling by the court confirmed the fact that her indoctrination at Princeton and Yale as a liberal whiner was successful.

A lawyer representing former Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner is requesting a chance to plead her case against a planned House vote to hold her in contempt of Congress. On Friday, Majority Leader Eric Cantor said in a memo to members that the House of Representatives would vote in May to hold Ms. Lerner in contempt of Congress over her refusal to testify before a congressional committee about IRS targeting of conservative groups. Ms. Lerner headed the division that handled the groups’ applications for tax-exempt status, and is at the center of congressional investigations. Ms. Lerner has twice declined

It’s been two years since I broke the story that Harvard University identified Sen. Elizabeth Warren as a minority — citing her alleged Native American roots — but we’re still in the dark. We’ve had two years of Warren’s simplistic answers that aren’t really answers. Two years of Warren insisting she’s proud of her heritage while dismissing questions about it. And two years of her refusal to open up records that could prove whether she used that heritage claim in Ivy League applications. Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus used yesterday’s anniversary to call on Warren — whose book tour has heightened

Larry Johnson was a junior college transfer who became the top star of the 1989-1991 Running Rebels of UNLV, leading them to two final four appearances and one championship. He later had a successful ten year NBA career with the Charlotte Hornets and the New York Knicks. In 1993, Johnson signed what was at the time the most lucrative NBA contract in history -- $84 million over 12 years. Nevertheless Johnson apparently believes that NBA players, despite their compensation levels, are still slaves to their white masters, and wants a new all black league. The idea for an all black

Black students at schools in Wichita and surrounding districts are disciplined at higher rates than their white peers, a trend that mirrors racial disparities throughout the country, according to the most comprehensive survey of school civil rights data in nearly 15 years. The findings, part of an expansive survey of America’s public schools by the U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights, shows that black students are more likely than whites to be suspended or expelled at middle and high schools in Wichita and most area districts. Education officials say it’s difficult to pinpoint reasons for the disparities. But

Washington - When Hillary Clinton arrived in Boston last week to speak to a group of female business executives, she made no mention of her presumed presidential ambitions, but offered her high-powered audience a piece of intriguing advice: “Women have to support other women.” It may have sounded like harmless sisterly solidarity, but little that Clinton says these days escapes scrutiny for ulterior motives. Perhaps her words were a warning to another formidable Democrat who has suddenly emerged as a perversely complicating factor in Clinton’s long-awaited march on the White House. It escaped few observers in Washington

Have we gone stark raving mad? The question is brought to mind by the gun law signed last week in Georgia by Gov. Nathan Deal. You might have thought that since the United States couldn’t possibly have more permissive firearms laws than it does now, nothing more could be done to coddle the gun lobby and tip the balance of our statutes away from law enforcement. Alas, you would be wrong. The creativity of the National Rifle Association and other organizations devoted to establishing conditions in which every man, woman and child in our nation will have to be armed
