The Internal Revenue Service managed a wide-ranging program that singled out tea party groups for special scrutiny from its headquarters in Washington, D.C., according to bombshell documents released Wednesday by a watchdog organization. Judicial Watch, a center-right group that specializes in Freedom Of Information Act document requests and lawsuits, said it received a cache of papers from the IRS showing the depth of the Obama administration´s involvement in what officials have previously called the work of a few ´rogue agents´ in Cincinnati, Ohio. And letters from U.S. Sen. Carl Levin, a Michigan Democrat, show his involvement in pressing the IRS

Hillary Clinton sings her mother’s praises in a just published excerpt from her upcoming memoir. But family members who knew Dorothy Rodham claimed she hated housekeeping, held grudges, was greedy and used anti-Semitic slurs. Hillary Clinton´s much balleyhooed and long-awaited memoir Hard Choices will be hitting bookstores in June, but the latest issue of Vogue has an exclusive sneak peek in the form of an excerpt that was tied to Mothers Day, in which the former First Lady, who many believe will run for the presidency in 2016, discusses the greatness of her mom, Dorothy Emma Howell Rodham.

Gamburo: The town
Boko Haram destroyed

Boko Haram is one of the most effective and successful guerrilla groups anywhere. Nowhere in the north-east of Nigeria is safe nowadays from it. It has even carried out attacks in distant cities like Kaduna, Kano and the capital, Abuja. What shocked me was that Boko Haram could launch a major attack on a smallish town like Gamburo, close to the border with Cameroon, and kill 375 people--and yet this would scarcely be reported in the rest of Nigeria, let alone the outside world. It happened eight days ago. My television team and I went there with the local governor, Kashim Shattima. Mr

Employees working for Obamacare contractor Serco do nothing for days or weeks at a time, a whistle blower within the company told a local news station this week. The employees want to work but there´s not enough work to go around, the employee, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, told St. Louis, Missouri´s News 4 KMOV. The employee alleged that Serco is keeping its workforce unnecessarily high to get more money out of the federal government. ´They want to hire more people, even though we still don´t have work to keep the people that we have busy,´ the employee said.

Digging for lost treasure, Congressman?

A U.S. congressman from Florida was caught last week digging his finger in his ear and then eating whatever it was he found. Representative Joe Garcia was at a May 7 House Judiciary Committee hearing on government surveillance, but it was his own reconnaissance mission that C-SPAN footage has now revealed. It was a live shot, in fact, and the Key West congressman had the poor timing to undertake his treasure hunt while sitting directly behind his colleague as she took the floor. Before the cameras have left him, the first term Democrat even looks at his fingers before putting

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush´s number has come up on the Republican Party´s presidential roulette wheel, making a possible third President Bush the talk of Washington, D.C. and fodder for breathless news reports. A House aide close to Speaker John Boehner told MailOnline on Tuesday that he will ´go to the mat for Jeb.´ ´He doesn´t want someone in office who´s going to keep splitting the party between the center and the right,´ the staffer said. But Bush´s family could drag along enough heavy baggage to sink a White House run, including his daughter Noelle´s 2002 arrests for prescription drug

Alec Baldwin has been arrested. The volatile actor was handcuffed by police officers in New York on Tuesday and taken away in a squad car, according to In Touch with one witness telling the publication Baldwin ´went ballistic on the cops, screaming at them´ during the incident which led to his arrest. A source told MailOnline he was stopped by police for cycling his bike the wrong way down Fifth Avenue and one of the reasons he was arrested was because he did not have any identification on him. By the time he was cuffed he was ´calm and quiet´,

How would you view a man who´s stockpiled a lifetime supply of old-fashioned lightbulbs because he believes low-energy bulbs could lead to blindness? You might well dismiss him as dotty. But the man in question, John Marshall, is no crank. In fact, he´s one of Britain´s most eminent eye experts, the professor of ophthalmology at the University College London Institute of Ophthalmology. So concerned is he that he has boxes stacked with old-fashioned incandescent lightbulbs at home. ´I bulk bought incandescent lightbulbs before the Government made it illegal to import them,´ he says. ´I can´t give you an exact number,

Nasa data reveals Antarctic ice sheet

The huge West Antarctic ice sheet is starting a glacially slow collapse in an unstoppable way, two new studies show. Alarmed scientists say that means even more sea level rise than they figured. The worrisome outcomes won´t be seen soon. Scientists are talking hundreds of years, but over that time the melt that has started could eventually add 4 to 12 feet to current sea levels. A NASA study looking at 40 years of ground, airplane and satellite data of what researchers call ´the weak underbelly of West Antarctica´ shows the melt is happening faster than scientists had predicted, crossing

When I was a small boy, I liked to imagine that foreigners took the Eurovision Song Contest seriously. We Brits knew that the thing was a kitsch joke, I reasoned, but not everyone had our sense of humour. Indeed, our pleasure in the grotesque gallimaufry was subtly enhanced by the thought that, in places like Delft or Dortmund, people were earnestly cheering on their national entries. In fact, of course, the show is watched in pretty much the same spirit everywhere. Maybe this wasn’t obvious in the Sixties or Seventies, when travel was expensive; but it’s unmistakeable in the age

   

 



 
End to solar farm blight as
subsidy scheme to be scrapped
Telegraph [UK], by Emily Gosden    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 5/13/2014 7:49:20 AM     Post Reply
Subsidies that have driven the spread of large solar farms across Britain are to be scrapped under plans to stop the panels blighting the countryside. Energy companies that build solar farms currently qualify for generous consumer-funded subsidies through the so-called ´Renewable Obligation´ (RO) scheme, and had expected to keep doing so until 2017. [Snip] The decision follows an admission by ministers that far more projects have been built than expected, leading to a rising subsidy bill for consumers and increasing local opposition. Greg Barker, the energy minister, pledged last month that solar farms must not become "the new onshore wind"

Karl Rove stunned a conference when he suggested Hillary Clinton might have brain damage. Onstage with Robert Gibbs and CBS correspondent and “Spies Against Armageddon” co-author Dan Raviv, Rove said Republicans should keep the Benghazi issue alive. He said if Clinton runs for president, voters must told what happened when she suffered a fall in December 2012. The official diagnosis was a blood clot. Rove told the conference near LA Thursday, “Thirty days in the hospital? And when she reappears, she’s wearing glasses that are only for people who have traumatic brain injury? We need to know what’s up with that.” Rove

A slow-motion and irreversible collapse of a massive cluster of glaciers in Antarctica has begun, and could cause sea levels to rise across the planet by another 4 feet within 200 years, scientists concluded in two studies released Monday. Researchers had previously estimated that the cluster in the Amundsen Sea region of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet would last for thousands of years despite global climate change. But the new studies found that the loss is underway now as warming ocean water melts away the base of the ice shelf, and is occurring far more rapidly than scientists expected. The

It´s a fact of American life that a good share of the electorate is disappointed, disapproving and even disdainful of President Obama. What´s less certain are the reasons why. For some Democrats, the explanation is simple: race. In recent weeks, West Virginia Sen. Jay Rockefeller, Mississippi Rep. Bennie Thompson and former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist have all said racism is the driving force behind Republican resistance to the president. Republicans, unsurprisingly, say their disdain for Obama is based not on the color of his skin, but on the content of his policies. "If any white Democrat had pushed through a billion-dollar stimulus

The Obama administration’s “hashtag diplomacy” has been under criticism for some time, though condemnation of its participation in the campaign to rescue the girls kidnapped by Nigeria’s Islamist terror group Boko Haram–tweeting messages along with the tag #BringBackOurGirls–was especially voluble this weekend. I agree with Jonathan on First Lady Michelle Obama’s decision to join the hashtag campaign: it’s harmless; she’s a political celebrity without the power to do more than speak out anyway; and while she certainly can simply tell her husband to “bring back our girls” in private, doing so publicly is more meaningful, and possibly more effective. However, it

After successfully bringing more than 30% of the U.S. economy — the health care and financial services industries — under political control during his first term, President Obama made it clear last week that a priority of his second term is to go after the energy sector — another 10.5%. The purpose of the White House´s orchestrated release of the National Climate Assessment on May 7 was to set the stage to drive energy markets and fossil fuels under the heel of more government regulation. Most Americans would celebrate knowing that the U.S. is on the cusp of oil and

NBA commissioner Adam Silver has pledged to pursue the ouster of disgraced Clippers owner Donald Sterling, who was caught on tape last month making a series of racist remarks and then attacked Lakers legend Magic Johnson in a nationally televised interview this week. However, the timing of Sterling’s departure remains unclear, and Shelly Sterling, Donald Sterling’s wife, has vowed to “fight” to keep her ownership stake in the team. One way or another, the National Basketball Players Association has made it clear they want both Sterlings removed by the start of the 2014-15 season, and one of the players union’s

GOP activist Karl Rove is being accused of gutter politics in a response by Hillary Clinton’s reps after remarks last week, reported by Page Six, that the former secretary of state may have brain damage from a blood clot she suffered in 2012.“From the moment this happened 17 months ago, the right has politicized her death,” Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill said in a statement. “First they accused her of faking it. Now they’ve resorted to the other extreme – and are flat-out lying … All he wants to do is inject the issue into the echo chamber, and he’s succeeding.” This comes in response to Rove’s comments at a conference in Los Angeles last

Former Clinton special counsel Lanny Davis says he plans to lead a “truth squad” to counter accusations coming out of the Benghazi select committee hearings. Davis will lead a group of volunteers “in front of the hearing room of the Gowdy committee” to be “available to put the facts out.” “We’re going to do a ‘truth squad.’” Davis, a Hillary ally, told Fox News Channel’s “The Kelly File” on Monday night. “The Republicans who are critical about what happened in Benghazi should not fear the truth,” Davis said.

Russia is to deny the US future use of the International Space Station beyond 2020 and will also bar its rocket engines from launching US military satellites as it hits back at American sanctions imposed over Ukraine crisis. Russia’s deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin announced a series of punitive measures on Tuesday against the US in response to sanctions imposed after Russia annexed Crimea. The two countries have long cooperated closely on space exploration despite their clashes in foreign policy. The Space Station is manned by both American and Russian crew, but the only way to reach it is by using Russia’s Soyuz
