eve of World Economic Forum

Daily Mail [UK], by Chris Pleasance

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 5/2/2014 4:23:59 AM

A car bomb attack in Nigeria´s capital city has killed at least 19 people and injured another 60, according to officials. [Snip] Nobody has yet claimed responsibility for the attack, but it bears of the hallmarks of radical Islamic group Boko Haram, who set off another blast just yards away last month which killed a further 70 people. The attack comes just days before the city hosts the World Economic Forum on Africa, which will attract prominent figures from across the globe including former Prime Minister Gordon Brown, who is listed as a speaker. The Nigerian government is deploying 6,000 police

If they catch the bombers, you can bet they won´t be spending a year or more in jail awaiting trial, unlike the Boston bomber.

House Speaker John Boehner´s lawsuit against him is just a ´stunt,´ President Barack Obama told ABC News anchor George Stephanopolous on Thursday. Obama said he´d already talked to the GOP legislator and that he told him,‘ "If you’re really concerned about me taking too many executive actions, why don’t you try getting something done through Congress?" ´ ´You´re going to squawk if I try to fix some parts of it administratively that are within my authority while you´re not doing anything?´ Obama said, referring to House Republicans. "I´m not going to apologize for trying to do something while they´re doing nothing.´

Two student leaders at the University of Las Vegas have called on Hillary Clinton to return the $225,000 speaking fee she is expected to receive for delivering a keynote address at an upcoming event. UNLV student body president Elias Benjelloun and the student government’s public relations director Daniel Waqar appeared on a local talk show Friday, condemning UNLV´s foundation for paying Clinton an ´outrageous´ sum of money for speaking at a fundraiser in October. ‘We really appreciate anybody who would come to raise money for the university. But anybody who´s being paid $225,000 to come speak, we think that´s a

Actress Amy Adams traded her first class seat on a Detroit to Los Angeles flight with a soldier who had been booked in coach. Adams reportedly noticed the American serviceman at the gate and quietly asked to switch seats with him. The five-time Academy Award nominee has often spoke glowingly of her father´s time in the military and of growing up on bases in both Italy and U.S. She then had a brief chat with the soldier near the cockpit and scurried to her seat in coach before many people noticed what had happened, according to ESPN host Jemele Hill, who witnessed the switch.

David Cameron is the only

From the start, David Cameron has loathed European summits. [Snip] Take, for example, today’s summit to decide the next president of the European Commission. Cameron knows that most of his counterparts regard Jean-Claude Juncker as a fairly useless, wine-soaked uber-federalist. But yesterday, they were all (with the possible exception of Hungary) set to vote him in as president--all except Britain, which is the only country to denounce the whole scam. If this is the way the system works, Cameron says, he wants a new system. There is an element of Mr Smith Goes to Washington about all of this. Cameron

Trusting Angela Merkel,

David Cameron faces a looming and crushing defeat over Jean-Claude Juncker because he fatally embraced Angela Merkel, a woman known in German politics as the black widow. [Snip] If Mr Cameron made one mistake in his campaign to stop creeping “political union” by stopping the European Parliament from transforming the commission into a crypto “government”, with a president chosen by MEPs after EU elections, it was the naivety of trusting Chancellor Merkel. He should have known better. In Germany she has been compared to a black widow or praying mantis for killing her partners in German coalition politics after using

Cameron warns EU leaders of
appointing Juncker as President
Daily Express [UK], by Macer Hall    Original Article

David Cameron was “completely unapologetic” last night about standing up for Britain in the diplomatic row over leadership of the EU. [Snip] And Mr Cameron issued a stark warning to his fellow EU leaders that pressing ahead with the appointment would have “consequences” for Britain’s future in Europe. He said: “Everything has consequences in life.” As the bitter feud deepened, it emerged that EU leaders are set to back Luxembourg’s former prime minister despite concerns about his alcohol consumption. Mr Cameron is expected to be overwhelmingly defeated and possibly isolated in a vote over the appointment today. Only Hungary’s premier Viktor

It is popularly imagined that the size of the British state has shrunk dramatically since the socialist Seventies, but figures released by the Office for National Statistics suggest otherwise. In 1977, some 40.7 percent of households received more in benefits (including in-kind benefits such as health and education) than they paid in taxes. That proportion has now risen to 52 percent. It hit a peak in the middle of the recession of 53.5 percent and has fallen slightly. But even with that small decline, most people would be surprised--if not shocked--to discover that a majority of Britons now take out

Immigrants who illegally cross the U.S. border from Mexico are using a ´cheat sheet´ to memorize answers they should give to American authorities that will help them stay in the United States if they are detained, it was claimed today. A guide given to immigrant instructs them to request asylum and say they have family in the United States and fleeing violent drug cartels in their home country. The Blaze, a conservative news site, obtained a copy of the Spanish-language cheat sheet that was found near the border crossing in McAllen, Texas. Illegal immigrants who request asylum are held for

Hillary Clinton berated President Barack Obama as ‘incompetent and feckless´ and said he had become ´a joke´ after having one too many glasses of wine at a reunion dinner last year with friends from college, a new tell-all book reveals. ´When her friends asked Hillary to tell them what she thought--really thought--about the president she had served for four draining years, she lit into Obama with a passion that surprised them all,´ former Newsweek editor Edward Klein writes in his book Blood Feud. ´"The thing with Obama is that he can’t be bothered and there is no hand on the

Iraq´s Prime Minister Nouri Maliki has told the BBC that he hopes jets from Russia and Belarus will turn the tide against rebels in the coming days. "God willing within one week this force will be effective and will destroy the terrorists´ dens," he said. He said that the process of buying US jets had been "long-winded" and that the militants´ advance could have been avoided if air cover had been in place.

Bill Clinton demonstrates he and Hillary

Bill Clinton likes $550 wristwatches so much that he has bought 14 of them to give away as presents, he told a Denver audience on Wednesday. The former president will receive $944,000 in pension and benefits from taxpayers this year and spent $7,700 on the watches, not counting the two he owns himself. In the run-up to the 2016 elections he and his wife, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, are trying desperately to distance themselves from charges that they´ve become wealthy elites.

Global Warming Study Ridiculed
After Temperatures DROP

A UK Met Office study that predicted temperatures would rise by up to half a degree centigrade over the past 10 years faces ridicule after it was revealed that temperatures actually dropped over that period. The peer-reviewed study by Doug M. Smith et al, entitled “Improved Surface Temperature Prediction for the Coming Decade from a Global Climate Model”--and which featured in the journal Science--also incorrectly predicted that several years over the past decade would see record heat. The paper says: “…predict further warming during the coming decade, with the year 2014 predicted to be 0.30° ± 0.21°C [5 to 95%

With Iraq in danger of falling apart, new troubles on the Mexican border and other problems mounting up in Washington, President Obama on Thursday will try to the shift the narrative by reconnecting with average Americans. The president will travel to Minneapolis on Thursday and spend a day “in the shoes” of a mystery woman identified only as Rebekah. The woman, whose last name has yet to be revealed, recently wrote a letter to Mr. Obama, inspiring the president to visit her and learn more about her daily struggles. The White House is painting Thursday’s event as the first in

Ordinarily, President Obama’s days are planned out to the smallest detail. But for his two-day excursion to Minnesota this week, the president boasted that he’s got little in the way of a formal agenda, has few firm plans, and warned Secret Service that he’s feeling “super loose” and could end up doing any number of things. “I don’t know. I’m just going to make it up as I go along,” Mr. Obama said during a town-hall meeting at Minneapolis’ Minnehaha Park, one of the few planned activities during his two-day stay in the Twin Cities. “I’m like a caged bear,

Republicans are in the strongest position to win back the Senate since losing it eight years ago. Over several months, the party has expanded its range of targeted seats, and the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) has helped defeat insurgents it didn’t want representing the GOP in the midterm elections. This sober realization came to Democrats on Wednesday, as Tuesday night’s primary results showed they cannot count on Tea Party candidates upsetting more-electable incumbents. And Democrats are increasingly realizing that President Obama’s approval rating will probably remain mired at 45 percent or lower until

In the absence of a special prosecutor, the best opportunity for piercing the veil of secrecy and evasion that surrounds the IRS handling of groups perceived as enemies of the Obama administration lies in civil litigation.

ALAN COLMES: You know it’s funny to me that conservatives talk about how much they love the constitution but when somebody exercises their constitutional rights they’re declared guilty when they’re not supposed to be. Simply because of the Fifth Amendment. Does invoking the Fifth Amendment indicate guilt? I mean, I love how conservatives always tell me how much they love and admire and basically want to have sex with the constitution – except they’d probably get paper cuts with that old parchment paper – but when somebody actually exercises their constitutional rights, it’s a big problem.

President Obama, tired of waiting for Congress to act on immigration reform, is currently exploring ways to address issues with Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson. During an interview with MSNBC’s Chuck Todd, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest explained that the Obama administration was getting impatient with Congress. “[W]e’re not just going to sit around and wait interminably for Congress,” he explained. “We’ve been waiting a year already.

Comparisons between Hillary Clinton and Mitt Romney have been greatly exaggerated, Hillary Clinton says. Clinton practically rolled with laughter when PBS’ Gwen Ifill noted humorlessly that her own husband has been “forced” to defend her recent comments about being “dead broke” after leaving the White House. What was humorous in that remarks is known only to Clinton. “I shouldn’t have said the, I think, five or so words that I said,” the former secretary of state said. “My inartful use of those five words doesn’t change who I am.” Later in the interview, Ifill asked if Clinton had become the Democratic adaptation of

A shocking new report from the Center for Immigration Studies claims to prove that every single new job created in America for the last fourteen years has gone to immigrants, legal and illegal. This would fly in the face of those who claim that immigration is an economic boon to native born Americans: The CIS report found that over the last 14 years, people who were born in the United States held 114.8 million jobs in 2000, and held 114.7 million jobs in 2014, a drop of 127,000. But it’s an entirely different picture for immigrants — 5.7 million more

It was the elephant on the back of the elephant in the middle of the room. In a recent interview with Rusty Humphries, Maricopa County, Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio made news by saying that the Obama administration was “incompetent” and that its current dumping of illegals in Arizona is intentional. Yet perhaps even more shocking was a 45-second segment of the interview that has received scant attention: A claim by Arpaio that he’s close to discovering who forged Barack Obama’s birth certificate. His comments were made between 9:59 and 10:44 in the interview and began as an explanation of why he

Were Lois Lerner’s allegedly lost emails actually destroyed? An Ohio-based trade association, the International Association of Information Technology Asset Managers (IAITAM), isn’t so sure, and they don’t find IRS commissioner Koskinen’s explanation of their loss very plausible. IAITAM administers internationally accepted certifications for information technology professionals. According to the group’s standards, if Lerner’s supposedly malfunctioning hardware was properly destroyed, there would be records of it. Dr. Barbara Rembiesa, president of IAITAM, questions whether there is documentation of the destruction of the files. Who performed the work, says Rembiesa, is important because not all IT professionals are IAITAM certified. “The notion

How far did the establishment GOP forces backing Senator Thad Cochran go in Mississippi this week? Too far, and their tactics are likely to leave permanent scars in a civil war with Tea Party forces that are out of all proportion to the importance the establishment placed on saving one 76-year-old senator’s ability to please Washington’s K Street lobbying interests. “This is a win for the establishment, but it’s a win with an asterisk, because it’s so tainted that it might be one of those things where they’re going to be sorry they ever won the runoff in Mississippi,” Craig
