J.K. Rowling Gives a Million Pounds
to Get Scotland to Stay in the U.K.

Atlantic Wire, by Lucy Westcott

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 6/12/2014 5:01:05 AM

Harry Potter creator J.K. Rowling has waded into the debate over Scottish independence by donating £1 million ($1.6 million) to the ´No´ campaign that supports keeping Scotland and the United Kingdom together. Rowling is the latest well-known Scot to voice her opinion on the independence referendum, which will be held on September 18 and is now less than 100 days away. Rowling, the first female billionaire novelist, was removed from the list in 2012 due to steep British taxes and the huge amount of money she donates to charity, according to Business Insider. Rowling has lived in Scotland for 21 years, but

Dear J.K. Rowling, George Soros agrees with you. Any alarm bells ringing yet? Use your imagination.

Women should be able to buy
the pill without a prescription
Denver Post [CO], by Cory Gardner    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 6/22/2014 1:15:32 PM     Post Reply
The least loved institution in America today is the U.S. Senate, and one of the reasons it is reviled is a zero-sum approach to women´s medical care. It´s time we changed that and adopt modern policies that make sense instead of using women´s medical issues as an election-year power play. One of the most rational ways for Washington to break this gridlock is to approve oral contraception for over-the-counter purchases by adults. Since "the pill" was first approved 44 years ago, it´s been one of the most proven and tested pharmaceuticals of our time. It is safe, reliable, effective, and presents

EPA in Contempt for
Destroying Computer Files

Posted By: MissMolly- 6/22/2014 9:40:43 AM     Post Reply
It’s hard to hear about this week’s Environmental Protection Agency contempt case and not think about the controversies surrounding the IRS “loss” of Lois Lerner’s email–and hard drive–and crash of the relevant server. According to an Associated Press report, a federal judge has held the EPA in contempt for destroying computer files sought after by a conservative group: Landmark Legal Foundation. It’s taken more than 13 years. U.S. District Judge Royce Lamberth had ordered the EPA on Jan. 19, 2001, at the end of the Clinton administration, to preserve all documents relevant to a Freedom of Information Act request by

Advocates of splitting California into

Good day, future citizen of West California! You may find yourself greeted thusly as you head into a supermarket or drugstore in Los Angeles on Saturday morning. Advocates for Six Californias, a plan to split the Golden State into a half dozen separate states, are holding a petition drive this weekend to get their plan on the ballot in 2016. The idea is the brainchild of Timothy Draper, a venture capitalist from Menlo Park – or as he hopes to some day call it, the state of Silicon Valley. Draper has sunk $2 million into signature gathering for the proposal. He maintains

McDaniel, Cochran primary
law fight disingenuous

Mississippi has a law that says a person cannot vote in a party primary unless they intend to support that party´s nominee in the general election. The law is all but unenforceable and is contradicted by other state statutes, but nevertheless it has gotten a lot of attention over the past week. The reason: Democratic operative James "Scooby Doo" Warren confirmed to me that he was working on behalf of the Mississippi Conservatives PAC on a statewide get-out-the-vote project in predominantly black precincts. Warren also said that while he´s happy to do the work, he will be supporting Travis Childers, the

SEOUL – The wife of South Korea’s most wanted man, a businessman linked to a ferry disaster in which hundreds of school children drowned, was arrested on Saturday, prosecutors said, as the net tightens around the fugitive’s family. Police and prosecutors arrested Kwon Yoon Ja, 72, on suspicion of embezzlement after chasing her for more than 20 days, an official said. Prosecutors and police are seeking Yoo Byung Un, 73, who has eluded one of the country’s biggest manhunts for more than a month. The husband of Yoo’s younger sister, a former ambassador to the Czech Republic, was arrested on Friday on

Hillary Clinton and Marion Barry
two politicians with staying power
Washington Post, by Colbert I. King    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 6/22/2014 4:52:13 AM     Post Reply
The release of Hillary Clinton’s “Hard Choices,” and Marion Barry’s “Mayor for Life: The Incredible Story of Marion Barry, Jr.” within days of each other was no doubt unintentional. But the timing is nonetheless fortuitous. The books draw attention to two of Washington’s most enduring political war horses. Clinton and Barry probably wouldn’t care to be linked with each other. They may share the same party label and left-leaning politics, but they tend to move in different circles. But the two politicians share a common experience: long public careers filled with year upon year of melodrama. Think Clinton and Barry

Rangel surrendered his
dignity a long time ago
New York Post, by Bob McManus    Original Article

Is the sun about to set on Charlie Rangel? Well, the voters get the last word — and a respectable poll shows the 84-year-old, 22-term institution with a healthy and apparently widening lead going into New York’s 13th congressional district primary election on Tuesday. So, it would seem not. What a pity. Because if there was ever a fellow who embodies the dysfunctionalities of Washington, Congress and contemporary elective politics, he is Rep. Charles Bernard Rangel of Harlem — the only chairman of the tax-writing House Ways & Means Committee ever to be pressured from that post for failure to pay his own

Hope Solo Jailed After Altercation

U.S. gold medal-winning goalkeeper Hope Solo was arrested early Saturday morning on investigation of two counts of domestic violence assault, police told the Seattle Times. Solo, 32, is being held without bail at the SCORE misdemeanor jail in South King County. Solo allegedly got into an argument with relatives at a family party at the home she shares with her husband, former NFL player Jerramy Stevens, in Kirkland, Washington. At some point during the altercation, according to police, Solo physically struck her sister and 17-year-old nephew. "There were visible injuries on them," Kirkland police lieutenant Mike Murray told the

Michael Jackson´s Neverland

LOS OLIVOS, Calif. -- From outside the gates of Neverland Ranch, it appears as if Michael Jackson´s former home and fantasyland has been frozen in time. The backyard circus is long gone, but heartfelt notes placed by saddened fans at the property´s entrance remain intact five years after Jackson´s death. And visitors are still making the pilgrimage. "I figured it would just be a closed gate, but I still wanted to see it for myself," said James Chen of Seattle, a fan who stopped outside Neverland during a recent road trip with his father.

Zero evidence of a Walker "criminal scheme"
Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel [WI], by Christian Schneider    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 6/21/2014 5:59:00 AM     Post Reply
Sometimes, the court of public opinion overrules a state’s actual courts. And in Scott Walker’s case, there is little chance for appeal. On Thursday morning, hundreds of pages of documents relating to the “John Doe II” investigation of Gov. Scott Walker’s 2012 recall campaign were ordered released. These documents comprised a number of legal filings by both prosecutors and defendants. But some media and liberal groups picked up on one specific 2013 charge by prosecutors that alleged Walker had been part of a “criminal scheme” to circumvent campaign finance laws. Immediately, national news outlets and liberal activists ran with the

   

 



 
The President and Michelle Obama
on Work, Family, and Juggling It All

President Barack Obama and wife Michelle have never been your typical working stiffs. With four Ivy League degrees between them, they’ve enjoyed high incomes and strong job security. But before and during college, they each worked minimum-wage jobs. And there was a time when they felt the same kind of financial aches and marriage strains that today’s dual-income families know all too well. As a young married couple in Chicago, they were mired in student debt, juggling multiple jobs and two kids, and bickering over who did what housework. “I wouldn’t fold,” remembers the president. “I didn’t separate, and Michelle’s

If I close my eyes, I can remember the first apartment where I lived with my family in Newark, N.J., in the late 1930s. The rooms were lined up like train cars—you had to go through one to get to another—and there wasn´t any heat or hot water. Heat came from the kitchen stove that ran all day on coal, and if you needed hot water for a bath or to wash, a huge kettle was put up. Fortunately, when I was 6, my family moved to Stephen Crane Village, Newark´s first low-income housing project. I thought we were rich. We

I have been listening all week to TV pundits lamenting that Lois Lerner’s hard drive has been destroyed, and therefore her e-mails are lost. This is simply not the case. I never cease to be amazed at the lack of understanding of how the e-mail system works. When you write an e-mail, it goes to your server to be sent to the person you e-mailed. Your server keeps a copy of that e-mail, and of all your e-mails – sent and received. When you create all the folders in your e-mail program that you use to save e-mails in...these are also

At the end of the Civil War, but before the pernicious reach of Jim Crow undermined the Union Army’s battlefield victory, former slaves and free blacks found themselves in possession of a most precious right -- the right to vote. It didn’t matter if a man had been a war hero in the famed, all-black 54th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry Regiment or a house servant in a Southern plantation. All that mattered was that he was a man. To say that this development didn’t sit well with the progressive-minded women of this country is an understatement.

The South Dakota Republican Party state convention passed a resolution calling for the impeachment of President Barack Obama Saturday. The resolution says Obama has "violated his oath of office in numerous ways." It specifically cites the release of five Taliban combatants in a trade for captive U.S. soldier Bowe Bergdahl, Obama´s statement that people could keep insurance companies, and recent EPA regulations on power plants. "Therefore, be it resolved that the South Dakota Republican Party calls on our U.S. Representatives to initiate impeachment proceedings against the president of the United States," the resolution reads.

I still think President Barack Obama was born in Hawaii, even though for 14 years he allowed his literary agent to circulate a bio blurb stating he was born in Kenya, and even though for many years he attended a church where his pastor friend shouted such things as “God damn America!” I still think that he just pretended to be Kenyan to be cool, to sell books and, perhaps, to get a foreign student scholarship at those colleges from which he refuses to release his transcripts. He’s probably not actually Kenyan. But as I speculated

Call it Paul Ryan’s finest hour. It’s a video of the congressman from Wisconsin confronting the commissioner of Internal Revenue over the missing Lois Lerner emails. It’s easy to see why the clip is going viral on the Web. It is one of those rare moments when Congress loses its temper and a major figure says what the American people are thinking. They don’t believe Commissioner John Koskinen is telling the truth. They don’t believe him. Mr. Koskinen protested. No one believed that either. Mr. Ryan’s ire was triggered by the suggestion of one of the Democrats that Mr. Koskinen

The patent office goes out of bounds

The decision this past week by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to rescind federal trademark protections for the Redskins may ultimately tip the balance in the controversy over the 80-year-old name of Washington’s football team. If so, that would be a shame. Not because there’s insufficient reason to consider the name “disparaging to Native Americans,” as the patent office determined. Many of us recoil at the reference to skin color as a team identity. The problem is that the Redskins case is just the latest example of a federal agency going beyond its brief to inappropriately insert itself in

The unfolding sectarian violence in Iraq is just the latest crisis where the Obama administration seemingly has been caught off guard. From the Veterans Affairs scandal to Russia´s swift annexation of Crimea, news of the world somehow keeps taking the commander-in-chief and his team by surprise. The following is a refresher of major domestic and foreign policy developments that, apparently, were news to the White House. 1. Islamist militants gaining in Iraq

First Lady Michelle Obama recently drew on her personal experience as a parent to justify her vastly unpopular intervention into the public school lunch program: Before coming to the White House, I struggled, as a working parent with a traveling, busy husband, to figure out how to feed my kids healthy, and I didn’t get it right.Our pediatrician had to pull me aside and point out some things that were going wrong. I thought to myself, if a Princeton and Harvard educated professional woman doesn’t know how to adequately feed her kids, then what are other parents going through who don’t have

Outwardly, they put on a show of unity — but privately, the Obamas and Clintons, the two power couples of the Democrat Party, loathe each other. “I hate that man Obama more than any man I’ve ever met, more than any man who ever lived,” Bill Clinton said to friends on one occasion, adding he would never forgive Obama for suggesting he was a racist during the 2008 campaign. The feeling is mutual. Obama made ­excuses not to talk to Bill, while the first lady privately sniped about Hillary. On most evenings, Michelle Obama and her trusted adviser, Valerie Jarrett, met in a quiet corner of the White House residence.

All the time I was growing up in Atlanta, the face of Robert E. Lee was taking shape on the side of an enormous granite mountain just outside town. He loomed like a god above us, as much a presence as any deity, and God knows he was accepted as such. It was only much later that I began to question his sanctity, and then to hate what he stood for. When I was in elementary school, the face of Lee on Stone Mountain was a rough-cut thing, weathering and wasting as the generation that began it in 1912—a generation

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) cancelled its longtime relationship with an email-storage contractor just weeks after ex-IRS official Lois Lerner’s computer crashed and shortly before other IRS officials’ computers allegedly crashed. The IRS signed a contract with Sonasoft, an email-archiving company based in San Jose, California, each year from 2005 to 2010. The company, which partners with Microsoft and counts The New York Times among its clients, claims in its company slogans that it provides “Email Archiving Done Right” and “Point-Click Recovery.” Sonasoft in 2009 tweeted, “If the IRS uses Sonasoft products to backup their servers why wouldn’t you choose

As President, my top priority is rebuilding an economy where everybody who works hard has the chance to get ahead. That’s what I’ll spend some time talking about on Monday, at the White House Summit on Working Families. We’re bringing together business leaders and workers to talk about the challenges that working parents face every day, and how we can address them together.
