A wrong righted
Telegraph [UK], by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 5/18/2014 8:26:52 AM

If a foreign criminal commits a crime in this country, it is surely self-evident that Britain should be able to deport the offender. And yet this simple thing has proved oddly difficult to accomplish. Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights, enshrined into UK law by the Human Rights Act, permits a “right to family life” to be used as a barrier against deportation--and it has been exploited by bad people in order to remain in the country. Classic examples include the Bolivian man who said that he and his boyfriend owned a cat, and that this helped

Why so eager to deport a murderer? The solution is to hang him by the neck until he is dead. Only takes a few minutes. The article says nothing about these criminals being prosecuted, imprisoned, or suffering the consequences if their actions.

David Cameron´s big mistake?
Trusting Angela Merkel,
the ´black widow´
Telegraph [UK], by Bruno Waterfield    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 6/27/2014 6:21:08 AM     Post Reply
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

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

Labour’s costly legacy of

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

The ´cheat sheet´ found near

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.

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 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

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%

Billionaire carbon trader Al Gore has thrown away the last remnants of his credibility by appearing on a platform with Australia´s most notorious mining magnate Clive Palmer to celebrate the end of Australia´s carbon tax. Palmer is also a Senator whose party--Palmer United Party--holds the balance of power in the new Australian senate, which he is exploiting by holding Prime Minister Tony Abbott´s administration to ransom. One of Abbott´s main electoral promises was that he would repeal Australia´s hated carbon tax. However, Palmer has said he will vote with the government on the measure provided it retains various green policies

Royal Navy frigate forced to intercept
two Russian military landing craft as
they steamed up English Channel
Daily Mail [UK], by Kieran Corcoran    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 6/26/2014 11:52:20 AM     Post Reply
A Royal Navy patrol ship tracked down and intercepted two Russian landing craft in the English Channel yesterday. HMS Severn, a 1,700-tonne River-class patrol ship armed with three machine guns, headed off the two military vessels sailing east through the Channel. The ship ´closed and tracked´ the Russian craft as they, which are thought to have been moving from the Mediterranean back to their home bases. A Royal Navy spokesman said that the encounter was part of ´a well-established and standard response´. Navy vessels have met Russian ships in the Channel several times this year already.

Supreme Court smacks Obama on ´recess

picks for America´s top union-labor board
Daily Mail [UK], by Associated Press & David Martosko    Original Article

The Supreme Court on Thursday limited the president´s power to fill high-level vacancies with temporary appointments, ruling in favor of Senate Republicans in their partisan clash with President Barack Obama. The high court´s first-ever case involving the Constitution´s recess appointments clause ended in a unanimous decision holding that Obama´s appointments to the National Labor Relations Board in 2012 without Senate confirmation were illegal. Obama invoked the Constitution´s provision giving the president the power to make temporary appointments when the Senate is in recess. Problem is, the court said, the Senate was not actually in a formal recess when Obama acted.

You may soon get a call from your doctor if you’ve let your gym membership lapse, made a habit of picking up candy bars at the check-out counter or begin shopping at plus-sized stores. That’s because some hospitals are starting to use detailed consumer data to create profiles on current and potential patients to identify those most likely to get sick, so the hospitals can intervene before they do. Information compiled by data brokers from public records and credit card transactions can reveal where a person shops, the food they buy, and whether they smoke. The largest hospital chain in

Senior Obama administration officials’ closed-door briefing to senators Tuesday night revealed that the White House did not anticipate and was not prepared for the rise of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL or ISIS), which has wreaked havoc in Iraq and seized many key cities in recent weeks. Top State Department and Defense Department officials joined senators Tuesday evening for a briefing on the quickly developing chaos in Iraq and future U.S. plans for a response. Sources familiar with the brief said that the administration officials repeated talking points issued over the past several days in both open and

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.

Hillary Clinton has a “secret deal” with her top aide Huma Abedin to keep her troublesome husband Anthony Weiner out of the spotlight, sources tell Page Six, as the former secretary of state mulls a run for president. Clinton aides have insisted Weiner “stay out of public life for two years,” and that he “avoid causing any further embarrassment to Huma or Clinton,” according to our sources. The former sexting pol has been noticeably absent at recent public events attended by Abedin, including the Gordon Parks Foundation Awards Dinner in Manhattan earlier this month.

Thad Cochran’s political resurrection began with a campaign shakeup and ended with a Hail Mary television ad. Just three weeks ago, in the dead of night on June 3, the Mississippi senator’s staff sat shaken and dejected, crestfallen at the results of a primary that deprived the six-term incumbent of an electoral majority. With Cochran forced into a runoff fight against an aggressive and energetic challenger, a dark mood shadowed his backers in Washington and Mississippi.Yet almost immediately, the Cochran coalition began bouncing back. Even on that gloomy night of June 3, Cochran adviser Stuart Stevens was insisting to staffers: “We’re

President Obama is now reaching terminal velocity, like a skydiver plunging toward earth. Except he doesn’t have a parachute. There’s a mighty splat coming soon. With his approval rating at 40 percent, down 6 points from early June, and just 29 percent of Americans convinced the country is on the “right track,” the president is doubling down on his strategy of blaming Republicans for his failures. And he’s shifting into hyperpartisan drive, traveling the country to campaign for Democrats, many of whom wish he’d just stay away. Worse, the news just keeps getting well, worse: The Veterans Affairs scandal is blazing, with

Lois Lerner, the controversial director of the tax-exempt organizations division at the Internal Revenue Service, has a long sordid history of targeting conservatives. Under the direction of Lois Lerner, the Federal Election Commission sued the Christian Coalition in the 1990s. She harassed the Christian Coalition for three election cycles. Eventually, she lost her case. At one point Lerner even asked a targeted conservative if Pat Robertson prayed over him. (Sound familiar?) In 1996, while at the FEC, Lois Lerner harassed Republican Senate candidate Al Salvi and made him this outrageous offer, “Promise me you will never run for office again, and

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

National conservative groups are angry after incumbent Mississippi Sen. Thad Cochran pulled off a victory in the state’s GOP run-off — likely because of his campaign’s outreach to Democratic voters. “It’s disgraceful that self-described GOP leaders like Mitch McConnell, John McCain, the Chamber of Commerce and the NRSC would champion a campaign platform of pork barrel spending and insider deal-making, while recruiting Democrats to show up at the polls,” Matt Kibbe of FreedomWorks said after the results came in. Tuesday’s closely-watched run-off came after conservative state Sen. Chris McDaniel edged Cochran in votes in the initial election earlier this month.

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

Given the bitter nature of the runoff in Mississippi, this probably surprises no one, but it’s also unlikely to produce any further surprises. After a narrow loss to incumbent Senator Thad Cochran, Chris McDaniel refused to concede last night. Instead, he blasted Cochran’s GOTV strategy and promised a challenge to the results: State Sen. Chris McDaniel will challenge the results of the Tuesday runoff election where 41-year incumbent Sen.
