Egyptian Police Confiscate
Newsletter, Arrest Sign

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

Comments:
This an important "milestone" in Egypt because newly-elected President el-Sisi is continuing in his campaign to arrest known terrorist (Muslim Brotherhood). Zero tolerance may get the country back on track, since the tourist industry is their biggest attraction. Of course, 0bama will pout and probably instruct Hagel not to give the millions in humanitarian and military aid required by our laws as long as possible.

Washington - U.S. House of Representatives Republicans on Thursday chose an ally of Speaker John Boehner for the No. 2 job in the chamber and, in a victory for the party´s conservative wing, elevated a Southern lawmaker to a leadership role. Representative Kevin McCarthy of California, already the third-ranking House Republican, was chosen to replace Eric Cantor as majority leader. He will control the House floor and help decide the party´s legislative priorities. Steve Scalise, a Louisiana lawmaker with backing from Southern Republicans, beat out two other lawmakers on Thursday to replace McCarthy as party whip,

Report: Workers Not Cashing

Manufacturing jobs have been heralded by Mayor Bill de Blasio and others as high-paying alternatives to the retail and hospitality jobs that dominate the city’s job growth. It turns out that may not be true. Industrial jobs in the city actually pay about the same–on average $20.56 an hour–as other jobs that don’t require a college education and pay on average $21.30 an hour, according to a new report by the city’s Independent Budget Office. The survey excluded construction jobs, which have high wages and represent a large portion of jobs in the industrial sector in data that is often cited. Food manufacturing is the fastest growing type of

One of the most highly regarded pianists and composers in jazz, Horace Silver, has died aged 85 in the US. He was one of the pioneers of a rhythmic jazz style known as hard bop. Silver began his career as a tenor saxophonist in clubs in Connecticut. But after he moved to New York in the 1950s, he switched to piano and began performing at the Blue Note Jazz Club. Many of his compositions became jazz standards, including Sister Sadie, The Preacher and Filthy McNasty. His family came from Cape Verde, and Silver was influenced by the folk music from the Portuguese-speaking islands off of Africa.

Canberra - About 150 Australians are, or have been, fighting with Arab insurgents in Syria and Iraq and pose a security threat if they return home, says Julie Bishop. The Foreign Minister’s warning came amid evidence convicted terrorist Khaled Sharrouf, who fled Australia earlier this year, has joined the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham’s uprising in northern Iraq. As ISIS militants battle with Iraqi government troops, The Australian today revealed that Sharrouf — who left for Syria using his brother’s passport — was thought to be among the thousands of ISIS fighters swarming threatening Baghdad.

GM’s 20 Million-Car Recall
Spans Globe: Chart of the Day
Bloomberg News, by John Irwin    Original Article
Posted By: EagleEye- 6/18/2014 8:23:18 PM     Post Reply
General Motors Co. (GM) has recalled more cars in 2014 than it sold worldwide in the past two years -- enough to circle the earth more than twice. GM, the largest U.S. automaker, called back 20 million vehicles in North America so far in 2014, including more than 3 million just this week. The Chart of the Day shows that’s about the equivalent of all the cars the Detroit-based automaker sold in the U.S. from 1920, the earliest data available, to 1947. Set end to end, 20 million 2010 Chevrolet Cobalts -- just one of the models at the heart of the recent recall surge -- would stretch for almost 57,000 miles (92,000 kilometers).

Antioch, Calif. — A Mexican citizen suspected in the killing of a man who tried to pay a debt with Star Wars action figures has been deported. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials say 34-year-old Pablo Christian Larumbe Rojas was turned over Tuesday to authorities in Mexico at a San Diego-area border crossing. Rojas was arrested earlier this year in the San Francisco Bay Area in connection with the slaying of Carlos Palomares Maldonado. Federal officials say Maldonado owed criminal associates of Rojas about $3,000 and offered to settle the debt by trading his collection of Star Wars figures that were apparently worth more

London - In a broad legal rationale for collecting information from Internet use by its citizens, the British government has reportedly asserted the right to intercept communications that go through services like Facebook, Google and Twitter that are based in the United States or other foreign nations, even if they are between people in Britain. (Snip) According to the summary, the government document says any contact between people in Britain through social networks based elsewhere, or use of search engines located outside Britain, constitutes “external communication,” and as such, is subject to interception, even when no wrongdoing is

Congress is poised to approve $41 million sought by the Obama administration to examine untested DNA evidence collected from rape victims and held by state and local police across the country. No firm count exists, but recent discoveries in New York City, Los Angeles, Dallas and Detroit suggest that the nationwide total of untested kits never sent to laboratories and kept in police storage exceeds 100,000 — some of them held for decades. Victims usually are unaware that their kits have not been tested, and members of both parties have called the backlogs a national scandal. On Tuesday, the full Senate is set to take up the funding as part of

Russian $8.2 Trillion Oil Trove
Locked Without U.S. Tech: Energy

Even as the decision to stop gas supplies to Ukraine aggravates tensions with the U.S. and Europe, Russia faces a dilemma: it still needs Exxon Mobil Corp., Halliburton Co. and BP Plc to maintain output from Soviet-era oil fields and develop Arctic and shale reserves. Russia will require Western companies to provide the modern drilling and production gear -- and techniques such as hydraulic fracturing -- that are essential to unlocking its $8.2 trillion worth of barrels still underground. The cutoff to Ukraine’s gas supply adds another layer of complexity for energy companies navigating a shifting geopolitical landscape in the search

Heritage’s ugly Benghazi panel

Representatives of prominent conservative groups converged on the Heritage Foundation on Monday afternoon for the umpteenth in a series of gatherings to draw attention to the Benghazi controversy. But this one took an unexpected turn. What began as a session purportedly about “unanswered questions” surrounding the September 2012 attacks on U.S. facilities in Libya deteriorated into the ugly taunting of a woman in the room who wore an Islamic head covering. The session, as usual, quickly moved beyond the specifics of the assaults that left four Americans dead to accusations about the Muslim Brotherhood

WASHINGTON -- The U.S. Patent Office ruled Wednesday that the Washington Redskins nickname is "disparaging of Native Americans" and that the team´s federal trademarks for the name must be canceled. The 2-1 ruling comes after a campaign to change the name has gained momentum over the past year. The team doesn´t immediately lose trademark protection and is allowed to retain it during an appeal. Redskins owner Daniel Snyder has refused to change the team´s name, citing tradition, but there has been growing pressure including statements in recent months from President Barack Obama, lawmakers of both parties and civil rights groups.

Redskins lose trademark, Harry Reid

In what some see as the first step to forcing the Washington Redskins football team to change their name, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on Wednesday cancelled six federal trademarks of the team name because it´s “disparaging” to Native Americans. “Petitioners have shown by a preponderance of the evidence that a substantial composite of Native Americans found the term REDSKINS to be disparaging,” said the decision. Fans, however, won’t see any immediate change — even if Daniel Snyder’s team eventually loses in court. That’s because all the order will do is eliminate the trademark the team has on merchandise. The Redskins are expected to appeal.

WASHINGTON — The White House said Wednesday it has found no emails between any person in the executive office of the president and a top Internal Revenue Service official who has been connected to the improper scrutiny of political groups. White House spokesman Jay Carney said the White House searched for all communications between the former IRS official, Lois Lerner, and executive office personnel. "We found zero emails," he said. He said the search discovered three emails in which a third party emailed both Lerner and executive office staff. He said one was spam and two others were from a person seeking

Washington -- I´ll let you know what´s going on, but I don´t need new congressional authority to act, President Barack Obama told congressional leaders Wednesday about his upcoming decision on possible military intervention in Iraq. The White House meeting sounded more like a listening session for the top Republicans and Democrats in the House and Senate about options for helping Iraq´s embattled Shiite government halt the lightning advance of Sunni Islamist fighters toward Baghdad that Obama is considering. According to a White House statement, Obama went over U.S. efforts to "strengthen the capacity of Iraq´s security forces to confront the threat" from

At a time when debate is swirling over the assertion that 97 percent of scientists endorse man-made global warming, Secretary of State John Kerry – a frequent citer of the 97 percent figure – in a speech Wednesday nudged the figure up to “at least 98, 99 percent.” “When it comes to climate change, when it comes to food security, we are literally facing a moment of adversity – perhaps even dire necessity,” Kerry said at a State Department food security award ceremony. “It’s hard to convince people – hard to convince people of a challenge that isn’t immediately tangible

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney explained that President Obama is fully engaged in the situation in Iraq – even though he spent last weekend golfing. Carney was asked about former Vice President Dick Cheney’s op-ed in The Wall Street Journal criticizing the President for golfing instead of paying attention to world affairs. “I think it’s pretty clear that this President has been paying close attention to this and has been engaging regularly with his national security team,” Carney said, praising Obama for deliberating carefully about the use of force in Iraq.

Hillary Clinton — the woman assumed to be the next Democratic Party presidential nominee and quite possibly the next president — is evidently a big snooze. According to Mediate, her interviews to promote her book on CNN and Fox had underwhelming numbers. In the case of Greta Van Susteren’s show, she sent people fleeing midway. More importantly, her book itself is a sales disappointment and, I would wager, even more disappointing if you could ascertain how many who did buy it read actually past page 15. I wouldn’t be surprised if it was in single digits. No, I haven’t read it

Hillary Clinton´s minions are hard at work assembling a political machine and fine tuning it for another go at the White House. Mrs. Clinton is doing her part preparing for a run as well, churning out a bland memoir about the "hard choices" she faced as secretary of state and coyly positioning herself (again) as the inevitable nominee of the party. But after the troubled beginning to her book tour, we´re beginning to see the reasons why Hillary may eventually decide to pull the plug on a 2016 presidential run. Here are five: 1) She´s just not that good at campaigning. If the last two gaffe-prone weeks have reminded us of anything about Hillary,

President Obama´s approval rating has dropped to 41 percent, a majority of Americans disapprove of his handling of foreign policy issues, he has lost support from the Hispanic community and Americans actually think his administration is less competent than the Bush White House post-Hurricane Katrina, according to a new survey from the Wall Street Journal and NBC News. In short, the poll is nothing but bad news for the president. The survey would appear to be so bad, in fact, that NBC News´ Chuck Todd said Tuesday that the poll basically means the public has declared the Obama presidency to be

Yesterday, it was announced the Obama administration had moved on Sunday to arrest a Benghazi al-Qaeda leader Ahmed Abu Khattala. Many people, including Fox’s James Rosen pointed particular questions to the State Dept. about “why now”? As unbelievable as this might sound, the most likely answer has little to do with what’s currently being pondered as a motive for this administration, “squirrel”. The reality is within the Bergdahl deal, and the GITMO-5 to Qatar, there is a far more likely reason.Ahmed Abu Khattala is directly connected to the covert transfer of U.S. arms from Qatar to Libya in the initial 2011

The ceremony for 50 new U.S. citizens was held at the National Archives in Washington, D.C. “It’s amazing that just a few feet from here where I’m standing are the signatures of the 56 Founders who put their names on a Declaration that changed the course of history,” she said during her speech, referring to the Declaration of Independence. “And like the 50 of you, none of them were born American – they became American.” Obama pointed out that the Founding Fathers pledged their
