David Cameron has piled the pressure on the growing crisis in Tony Blair’s reputation by calling for an end to hold-ups in a long-delayed report on the Iraq War. The former Prime Minister has been accused of trying to delay publication of the Chilcot Inquiry over well-sourced reports that it will savage his handling of the conflict. Now Mr Cameron has stepped into the dispute by making it clear Sir John Chilcot’s findings should be made public as soon as possible. It follows claims that Mr Blair and Labour hope to delay the report until after next year’s General Election,

Eleven terrorists with links to Al Qaeda
have been arrested on suspicion of being
involved in the disappearance of MH370
Daily Mail [UK], by Richard Shears*    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 5/3/2014 7:03:14 PM     Post Reply
A group of 11 terrorists with links to Al Qaeda were yesterday being interrogated on whether they are behind the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370. The suspects were arrested in the capital Kuala Lumpur and in the state of Kedah last week and are members of a violent new terror group said to be planning bomb attacks in Muslim countries. The interrogations come after international investigators, including the FBI and MI6, asked for the militants, whose ages range from 22 to 55 and include students, odd-job workers, a young widow and business professionals, to be questioned intensively about Flight MH370.

Matthew Parris has written a silly column about Ukip. A very silly column. It fits with the growing narrative that Ukip isn’t just a bunch of xenophobic golf players with too much time on their hands but actually the first stage of the Fourth Reich. Oh my, it is silly. At an almost empty Derby railway station, I passed a little posse of youths with purple badges and pound-sign stickers and … felt just momentarily menaced … I was starting to look at the Ukip phenomenon with new eyes. Were those eyes entirely open, Matthew? For an angry gang of Ukip

US President Obama calls

US President Barack Obama plans to ask Attorney General Eric Holder to investigate problems surrounding the application of the death penalty. The US leader´s announcement comes just days after a botched execution in Oklahoma drew widespread attention. [Snip] The president said he has conflicting feelings regarding the death penalty. "This situation in Oklahoma I think just highlights some of the significant problems," Mr Obama told reporters. Americans should "ask ourselves some difficult and profound questions around these issues", he added. Mr Obama, trained as a lawyer, said the death penalty is warranted in some cases--including child and mass murder--but its application in

Seven international military observers taken captive in eastern Ukraine a week ago have been released. Five Ukrainian officers captured with the observers, who are linked to the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe, were also freed. Pro-Russian separatists in the town of Sloviansk say they released the OSCE observers "without conditions". The news came as Ukraine´s government said it had resumed military action to tackle the separatists in the east. Russia, accused by the West of being behind the unrest, says it "no longer has any influence" over the separatists. Moscow also accused Kiev and the West of responsibility for Friday´s violence in

ST IVES, CAMBRIDGESHIRE, UK––An over-capacity crowd of around 650 people met UKIP leader Nigel Farage for the final town hall-style meeting of his pre-European Election tour of the United Kingdom. With UKIP swag plastered all over the Burgess Hall venue, Farage entered to rapturous applause, flanked by increased security following the assault on him earlier this week. Farage was speaking to the throngs of disaffected Brits, who have witnessed their livelihoods sacrificed for multiculturalism, big state-driven debt, and the transfer of sovereignty over their own lives from their local towns and villages to centralised governments in London and Brussels.

Head teachers raise ´serious concerns´
over Islamic school take-over
Telegraph [UK], by Graeme Paton, Andrew Milligan    Original Article

Schools across Britain are likely to have been targeted in an alleged Islamist plot to take over classrooms, head teachers have warned. The Telegraph understands that there are growing concerns about the possible infiltration of schools in Bradford, Manchester and parts of east London. [Snip] The acknowledgement from the professional body follows a series of exposés by The Telegraph which disclosed how a “Trojan Horse” plot in Birmingham had put schools under pressure illegally to segregate classrooms and change teaching to reflect radical Islamic beliefs. On Friday, Ofsted confirmed that its investigation had spread from 18 to 21 schools in

Russia and Ukraine closer to all-out war

Russia and Ukraine inched closer to war yesterday after ‘many’ pro-Moscow separatists were killed during a major military offensive to seize back a rebel-held city. As fighting flared in the east of Ukraine, Vladimir Putin said the operation had ‘destroyed’ any hopes of peace. The Kremlin said Kiev’s decision to deploy the army against its own people was a ‘catastrophe’ and called for an emergency meeting of the United Nations Security Council. On a day of dramatic developments in the crisis: Ukraine’s acting president Oleksandr Turchynov said the militants suffered ‘heavy losses’ in the anti-terror operation;

How exciting to discover that Amesbury in Wiltshire is the oldest, continuously-inhabited village in the country. Archaeologists have worked out that people have lived there since 8,820 BC. [Snip] Even as much of the country gets covered in concrete, tarmac and out-of-town shopping centres, those ancient place names survive beneath it all, giving clues to how those places originally looked – and often still look. The vast majority of English place names are derived from the Old English spoken by Germanic immigrants who came here in the 5th and 6th centuries, after the Romans left in 410 AD.

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.

Wednesday’s BBC World newscasts were dominated by coverage of Tuesday night’s delayed Oklahoma execution of convicted murderer Clayton Lockett. The execution was the top story for at least four consecutive hours on BBC World, the British broadcasters´ international television service, because there were complications during the execution which delayed the period of time it took for condemned man to finally be pronounced dead. [Snip] With repeated and detailed descriptions of the procedure used to execute a man whose crime, watching his friends bury alive the 19-year old girl he raped and then shot, was mentioned, if at all, merely as

More than two weeks after an estimated 234 school girls were kidnapped by Islamic extremists in Nigeria, people have taken to the streets for another day of protests to voice their unhappiness at the government’s failure to ensure the safe release of the hostages. The girls were seized by members of the Boko Haram terrorist network at a high school in the town of Chibok in the nation´s far northeast on April 16. Armed men herded the girls out of their beds and forced them into a convoy of trucks which then disappeared into the dense forest bordering Cameroon.

Former White House National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor went on Fox News on Thursday, and after host Brett Baier grilled him over the issue of the talking points used after the attack, he finally responded with, "Dude, this was like two years ago." Throughout the exchange, Vietor — who seemed annoyed at the line of questioning — wasn´t really able to answer Baier on various questions, telling him he "believes so" or that he didn´t remember. "You don´t remember?" Baier asked, to which Vietor responded, "Dude, this was like two years ago. We´re still talking about the most mundane

No less a source than FIVE THIRTY EIGHT DOT COM reports that Greatest Living President George W. Bush is on the rebound: “Since April, Bush’s favorable rating has averaged 49.3 percent. His unfavorable rating has averaged 46.3 percent.” Not surprisingly, that’s a better rating than the fifth greatest living president:(Snip for chart)Bush’s emergence as a fantastic painter may have something to do with it. Unfortunately, the 22nd Amendment prohibits President Bush from seeking a third term in 2016.

If the president wants to witness a refutation of his assertion that the survival of the Affordable Care Act is assured, come Thursday he should stroll the 13 blocks from his office to the nation’s second-most important court, the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals. There he can hear an argument involving yet another constitutional provision that evidently has escaped his notice. It is the origination clause, which says: “All bills for raising reveornue shall originate in the House of Representatives; but the Senate may propose or concur with amendments as on other bills.” The ACA passed the Senate on a

A newly-emerged government email directly "contradicts the message that President Obama, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice and White House press secretary Jay Carney repeated publicly" in the immediate aftermath of the attack in Benghazi. Per Sharyl Attkisson dot com, the "email is titled “Libya update from Beth Jones.” Beth Jones served as Assistant Secretary of State to Hillary Clinton at the time. The email documents a conversation between Jones and Libya’s Ambassador at 9:45am on Sept. 12, 2012 not long after the attacks. This below contradicts the White House and State Department´s story

As his co-hosts on The Five continued to examine every angle of the 2012 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi Friday afternoon, this time focusing on comments made by a former White House spokesperson, Bob Beckel decided he had finally had enough. Deliberating echoing former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Beckel pounded the table and said, “We know Islamic radicals killed these people, what difference does it make anymore?!” “Let me finish!” Beckel shouted at Eric Bolling, as that host tried to prevent him from bringing up any issues unrelated to the Benghazi attack. When Bolling said he should

You couldn’t help but feel for Robert Lovell. The retired brigadier general is haunted by the failure of AFRICOM, the U.S. military’s Africa Command, to respond when Americans were under siege in Benghazi on September 11, 2012. His congressional testimony this week was somber — no faux “What difference, at this point, does it make?” indignation, no “Dude, this was two years ago” juvenilia for him. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and the State Department’s Sean Smith were killed in the early stage of the jihadist attack. By then, the actions that would surely have saved their lives — e.g., an adult recognition

Angry congressional Republicans have commanded Secretary John Kerry to testify in a May 21 hearing about why the State Department hid documents showing how the aftermath of the 2012 terror attack in Benghazi unfolded. They are also launching a new investigative committee to dig further into the scandal, which erupted just weeks before President Obama´s re-election. He insisted at the time that al-Qaeda was ´on the run,´ but documents now confirm that the State Department knew immediately that it was a terror attack carried out by an al-Qaeda-affiliated group. Two emails have emerged in the past 24 hours that suggest Obama administration

From Peggy Noonan’s column in the Wall Street Journal today: But he seems increasingly passive. He is not passive when it comes to his political fortunes—he goes out and speaks and tries to rally the base—but even there, and certainly when it comes to governing, he seems bored, as if operating at a remove.(Snip)But is there any evidence that Obama is smart? He’s never released any of his transcripts, and we still have no idea on what basis he was admitted to Occidental, Columbia and Harvard. Further, if he were as smart as his fawning admirers in academe and the

House Speaker John Boehner can put his plans for a select committee to investigate the Sept. 11, 2012, attacks in Benghazi on hold. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has gotten to the bottom of the scandal: It´s the Koch brothers´ fault. Yes, the Nevada Democrat´s obsession with billionaires Charles and David Koch extends to blaming them for the Republican-controlled House´s desire to get to the bottom of why the Obama administration blamed a terrorist attack on an obscure anti-Islam video (to protect President Obama politically, according to emails newly obtained by Judicial Watch in a lawsuit). Here´s Reid´s statement

MIAMI— Vice President Joe Biden extoled immigration as crucial to American innovation Saturday at a college graduation ceremony in South Florida. The Miami Dade College graduates from two campuses and their families, 2,000 strong, cheered as a procession of 39 flags from their home countries, entered the gym and opened the program. Biden acknowledged that he was addressing many immigrants and the children and grandchildren of immigrants, many from South America and the Caribbean. Biden said a "constant, substantial stream of immigrants" is important to the American economy, urging citizenship for immigrants living in the U.S. illegally. "That´s why we
