Uninspired growth makes weak
recovery one of the longest
Washington Times, by Patrice Hill    Original Article
Posted By: EagleEye- 6/15/2014 9:42:39 PM     Post Reply
The U.S. economic recovery has distinguished itself as one of the weakest since World War II, but at five years and counting, it may go down as one of the longest as well. After taking off in June 2009 after the Great Recession, which was the deepest postwar recession, the economy this spring surpassed the average length of the typical postwar recovery, which is 58 months. With no end in sight, it now appears the recovery will rival the longevity of the 1960s, 1980s and 1990s expansions. The length of the expansion may seem like big news to many. Opinion polls show most Americans believe the economy is still in decline because meager job and

Gunmen in Kenya attacked a busy coastal town late Sunday, opening fire from two minibuses and setting two hotels on fire, officials said, adding the attackers were suspected Islamist insurgents. There was no immediate confirmation of casualties, but residents said the attack lasted for hours. Kenyan army spokesman Major Emmanuel Chirchir said the gunmen entered the western town of Mpeketoni, a trading centre on the main coastal road, and started "shooting people around in town". The "assailants (are) likely to be Al-Shebab," Chirchir said, referring to Somalia´s Al-Qaeda-linked insurgents.

A U.S. military official confirmed to NBC News that ´fewer than 100´ Department of Defense personnel will augment security assets at U.S. diplomatic facilities in Baghdad. The news comes as violence erupted throughout Iraq´s capital — at least 15 people were killed and more than two-dozen were injured in explosions on Sunday, Iraqi police and hospital officials told the Associated Press. (Snip) The U.S. Embassy in Baghdad remained open in the aftermath of the explosions, though security was strengthened and some staff members were transferred out of the city, a State Department spokeswoman said in a statement.

Egyptian Police Confiscate

Cairo - The Egyptian police over the weekend confiscated a human rights group’s newsletter, arrested two activists for a paper sign criticizing the police and shut down two Cairo grocery store chains that the police said had ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. Less than a week after the inauguration of President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, the grab bag of notable police actions over two days was the first indication that his administration intends to continue the broad crackdown on dissent that began after the military takeover he led last summer. (Snip) The officer also charged that the newsletter was affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood, the Islamist group that

IDF forces operating in Hevron surrounded a house, exchanged fire with its occupants, and arrested two terrorists from the Hamas terror group on Sunday night. According to reports in Palestinian media, an explosion was heard in the area, presumably IDF soldiers blowing open the door to the house. It is unknown whether the two arrested terrorists have any direct connection to the ongoing search for the three kidnapped Israeli teens, but the IDF has been conducting an arrest operation of Hamas members throughout Judea and Samaria. Earlier Sunday, top Hamas member Hassan Yousef was arrested as part of the operation.

For the second time in two nights, the Israeli Air Force (IAF) launched an airstrike on terror targets in Gaza on Sunday night. According to an IDF statement, the airstrikes targeted a terrorist center and three weapons storage sites in northern Gaza. Also targeted was a terrorist center in southern Gaza. Direct hits were identified and all aircraft returned safely to their bases, the statement said, adding that the airstrikes were in retaliation for recent rocket attacks on southern Israel. “The IDF will not tolerate attempts to harm Israeli citizens and IDF soldiers, and will operate against anyone who uses terror against the State of Israel,”

Militants Claim Mass
Execution of Iraqi Soldiers

Baghdad - Militants from the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria boasted on Twitter that they had executed 1,700 Iraqi government soldiers, posting gruesome photos to support their claim. (Snip) If the claim is true, it would be the worst mass atrocity in either Syria or Iraq in recent years, surpassing even the chemical weapons attacks in the Syrian suburbs of Damascus last year, which killed 1,400 people and were attributed to the Syrian government. The latest attack, if proved, would also raise the specter of the war in Iraq turning genocidal, particularly because the insurgents boasted that their victims were all Shiites. There were also fears that it could

Hong Kong - The US Navy on Sunday welcomed four members of China´s military aboard one of its aircraft carriers -- and said it hoped to receive a return invite someday. The four People´s Liberation Army members were among guests flown by a C-2 Greyhound aircraft to the USS George Washington for a "VIP visit" before it berths Monday off Hong Kong on a routine call. Tensions are high in the South China Sea and East China Sea as Beijing asserts its sovereignty over reefs and islands also claimed by US allies such as Japan and the Philippines. But Rear Admiral Mark C. Montgomery, commander of the task force headed by the carrier,

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor on Sunday downplayed the argument that he lost his House seat because of his immigration stance and hinted that his 22 years in elected government might be over. Cantor acknowledged his views on immigration, which includes some legal status for children of illegal immigrants, played a part in his GOP primary loss Tuesday in Virginia to Tea Party-backed challenger Dave Brat. “That infuriated people on both sides. Sure,” Cantor told ABC’s “This Week.” However, Cantor called his stance a long-held, principled position and said he never supported “amnesty” for the millions of Americans

The kidnapping of three teens on the way home from school in Gush Etzion on Thursday did not weaken the resolve of politicians who oppose releasing Palestinian terrorists. Bayit Yehudi faction chairwoman Ayelet Shaked said Sunday her bill limiting presidential pardons to murderers and terrorists, which passed a preliminary Knesset reading last week, is more relevant than ever. "Releasing murderers pours fuel on the fire of terror and will encourage more and more kidnapping. The time has come to make a change," she told The Jerusalem Post. According to Shaked, murderers need to die in prison and not be freed,

Kirkuk, Iraq - After a decades-long dispute between Arabs and Kurds over the oil-rich northern Iraqi city of Kirkuk, it took just an hour and a half for its fate to be decided. As al-Qaida-inspired militants advanced across northern Iraq and security forces melted away, Kurdish fighters who have long dominated Kirkuk ordered Iraqi troops out and seized full control of the regional oil hub and surrounding areas, according to a mid-ranking Army officer. (Snip) "They said they would defend Kirkuk from the Islamic State," said the Arab officer, who oversaw a warehouse in the city´s central military base.

San Francisco - New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who signed legislation barring "gay conversion therapy" in his state, said Friday that Texas Gov. Rick Perry´s comparison of homosexuality to alcoholism was wrong. "I disagree with him, and I don´t believe that´s an apt analogy," Christie said during a San Francisco appearance alongside Neel Kashkari, the GOP candidate for California governor. (Snip) At a question-and-answer session Wednesday night in San Francisco, Perry reiterated his belief that homosexuality was a lifestyle choice.

At any other time, the growing crisis on the Mexican border, with tens of thousands of unaccompanied young people crossing illegally into the United States, might dominate the news. Yet the situation has received less attention than it might amid the furor over House Majority Leader Eric Cantor´s primary defeat, the collapse of Iraq, the continuing Bergdahl matter, and Hillary Clinton´s book tour. They´re all genuinely important news stories, and they´ve crowded out disaster at the border. But whether or not many people noticed, this was the week in which the Obama administration´s attempts to deflect blame for the border

WASHINGTON — NO one wrote about blondes like Raymond Chandler. “There is the small cute blonde who cheeps and twitters and the big statuesque blonde who straight-arms you with an ice-blue glare,” he wrote in “The Long Goodbye.” “There is the blonde who gives you the up-from-under look and smells lovely and shimmers and hangs on your arm and is always very, very tired when you take her home.” There’s the pale, anemic, languid blonde with the soft voice. “You can’t lay a finger on her,” Chandler notes, “because in the first place you don’t want to and in the

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced during a New York Times interview that the Holy Bible is the book that made her who she is today. “If you had to name one book that made you who you are today, what would it be?” asked The New York Times, in a book review questionnaire. “At the risk of appearing predictable, the Bible was and remains the biggest influence on my thinking,” Clinton said. “I was raised reading it, memorizing passages from it and being guided by it.” “I still find it a source of wisdom, comfort and encouragement,” she

I know, I know, the recent ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Levant) gains have everyone scared. No doubt, the Islamophilic administration will want to step in, and save Islam from itself once again. Let me advocate a course of action that will make sense (snip) Let the Muslims kill each other. After the administration blundered on Benghazi, on the Arab Spring, and Syria, Heaven itself has afforded it one last chance to set itself right. It is almost impossible for the administration to screw it up. All it has to do is nothing. Yes, Nothing!

In an astonishing challenge to traditional Catholic doctrine, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, nominally Catholic, has taken to telling San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone that he should not attend the National Organization for Marriage’s June 19 march on the Supreme Court in Washington D.C. Cordileone is scheduled to be a featured speaker at the event, according to the San Francisco Chronicle, which is consistent with his championing of Proposition 8 in 2008. Cordileone helped raise $1.5 million for the initiative, which intended to ban same-sex marriage in the state. He once said, "The ultimate attack of the evil one is

Top Jeb Bush adviser Mike Murphy, who did not even pay attention to Dave Brat´s campaign like Breitbart News did, has falsely been claiming that Cantor´s embrace of amnesty for illegal immigrants was not the reason he lost last Tuesday. Liberal writer Mickey Kaus had enough of Murphy´s nonsense and slammed him on Twitter on Friday evening. Kaus became Brat´s de facto press secretary and top advocate on Twitter in the last months of the campaign because Kaus, like Brat, opposes amnesty for illegal immigrants because it would hurt American workers. He mentioned to Murphy that talk radio host Laura Ingraham

RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. – It´s perhaps appropriate that President Barack Obama is vacationing this weekend in California, where the state flag features a roaming grizzly. The restless president, who has compared himself to a caged animal on recent wanderings by declaring the "bear is loose," took a long Father´s Day weekend away with his wife and older daughter. The visit to the desert resort area of Palm Springs is one of the ways Obama has been trying to escape during his sixth year cloistered in the White House. "I think frankly we've all been through a cold and bitter winter and the bear has cabin fever,"

Bill Clinton is by far the most admired president of the past quarter century, a new poll shows, underscoring how much he has done to burnish his profile since leaving the White House in 2000. Asked which president of the past 25 years they admired most, some 42% of respondents named Mr. Clinton in the new Wall Street Journal/NBC News/Annenberg Survey. That was more than twice the share that named any other president. The other three presidents of the quarter century all polled about the same: 18% said they most admired President Barack Obama; 17% named George W. Bush; and 16%

Anaheim, CA - President Obama, appearing emboldened after his recent move to cut carbon emissions from coal-fired power plants, on Saturday ridiculed members of Congress who deny climate change or plead scientific ignorance as an alibi for avoiding an uncomfortable truth. Speaking in gleefully sarcastic terms to a commencement ceremony at the University of California, Irvine, Mr. Obama likened those who deny climate change to people who would have told John F. Kennedy, at the dawn of the space program, that the moon “was made of cheese.” He saved his most scathing words for lawmakers who say they are not qualified to

President Barack Obama said denying climate change is like arguing the moon is made of cheese, as he issued a call to action on global warming to Saturday´s graduates of the University of California, Irvine. Obama issued the call to the tens of thousands gathered at Angel Stadium even though he said Congress ´is full of folks who stubbornly and automatically reject the scientific evidence´ and say climate change is a hoax or fad. Obama said others duck the question. ´They say, "Hey, look, I´m not a scientist." And I´ll translate that for you: what that really means is, "I know that

Members of Congress called on President Obama Sunday to link up with Arab allies and quell a quick-moving crisis in Iraq, where Islamic militants swept toward Baghdad and left a bloody trail in their wake. Republican lawmakers said the administration has sat on the sidelines for too long as sectarian violence threatens to undo what U.S. troops accomplished during the war in Iraq. The bloodshed spurred by militants from an al Qaeda splinter group could topple the country’s fragile government while civil war rages in neighboring Syria, they said, offering a magnet for extremists from Iran and even western nations.

Joe Scarborough, the MSNBC host who has transformed into one of his generation´s most preeminent Rockefeller Republicans, believes Mitt Romney should run for president again in 2016. Speaking to about 300 guests at "a luxury resort in the Rocky Mountains" with other potential GOP presidential hopefuls like Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) and Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), Scarborough reportedly urged the establishment donors and insiders to being a “Draft Romney” movement. “This is the only person that can fill the stage,” Scarborough said at a summit hosted by Romney, according to a Washington Post report. Scarborough and other attendees may not have realized that
