Kidnapping of Teens in Israel
to Have ‘Grave Consequences’

ABC News, by Alexander Marquardt

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 6/17/2014 4:27:47 AM

JERUSALEM - Israel’s prime minister warned today that the kidnapping of three teenage yeshiva students in the West Bank, including one who is an American citizen, “will have grave consequences.” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu accuses the Palestinian militant group Hamas of being behind Thursday’s abduction, adding that, “We are in the middle of a complex operation. We need to be prepared for the fact that it may take more time.” “It is a serious incident and will have grave consequences,” Netanyahu added. Hamas, considered a terrorist organization by Israel and the U.S. State Department, has denied any involvement in

GOP Infighting Shows
No Sign of Easing Up
Wall Street Journal, by Patrick O´Connor & Janet Hook    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 6/23/2014 5:32:10 AM     Post Reply
PEARL, Miss.—The battles that played out in Republican primaries this spring have done little to resolve the party´s divisions, with differences over both tactics and policy still stark. Travels around Mississippi, which holds a runoff Tuesday to pick a GOP Senate candidate, show, in essence, two different parties. State Sen. Chris McDaniel has galvanized conservative support in his bid to defeat Thad Cochran, a 36-year Senate veteran. Mr. McDaniel draws crowds packed with political newcomers and conservative activists drawn to the tea-party message of small government and reduced federal spending. "Sen. Cochran votes with the establishment—Republican and Democratic," said Mary Jones of Brandon,

Who Gagged the Search for MH370?

New reports that the pilot of the missing airliner is now a suspect highlight how much Malaysia—or someone—has stymied the investigation. It’s not just the airplane. When 239 people disappear without trace, as they did with Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, there is an urgent public interest in knowing why. After 15 weeks, this interest has not been met. For the families of the passengers this has caused its own kind of unimaginable and prolonged distress for which there is no precedent. For journalists covering what is, without doubt, the greatest aviation mystery in history, it has turned out to be a frustrating

So now the Central Park Five are $40 million richer. It’s all thanks to Mayor de Blasio’s decision to lavish taxpayer funds on a group of thugs who’ve been lionized in film and feted by the City Council as innocent victims of a racist conspiracy after their convictions for raping and beating a young jogger in 1989 were overturned. Justice at last? Hardly. The Post has always been skeptical of the belated claim by serial killer Matias Reyes claim that he alone raped jogger Trisha Meili. Under Mike Bloomberg, the city resisted intense political pressure to settle the five’s lawsuit — with good

Here are the 12 most competitive

The November election is 135 days away, but we now have a very clear idea of what the Senate playing field will look like. Primaries have largely sorted themselves out in the most competitive Senate races in the country, with Republicans — so far — avoiding the perils of 2010 and 2012, in which the party nominated several candidates who had major electability problems in the general election. What we are left with is 12 races that can be considered truly competitive — meaning that either one (or both) of the national parties and/or the various outside groups have spent or will

What liberal media won´t tell

Is there an epidemic of school shootings? Parents are understandably fearful, but their fear is unjustified. Schools are relatively safe places, and they have gotten much safer. While even one death is too many, the number of children killed in school shootings has declined over the last couple of decades. The drop is even larger than the overall decline in the murder rate. Last week, Michael Bloomberg’s various gun control organizations exacerbated the fears by claiming that there were 74 school shootings since the actual Newtown school shooting in December 2012, and that something must be done. But Bloomberg’s numbers were dead

Billions at risk as West
Coast port contract ends
Associated Press, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 6/23/2014 4:34:17 AM     Post Reply
LOS ANGELES – The West Coast ports that are America´s gateway for hundreds of billions of dollars of trade with Asia and beyond are no stranger to labor unrest and even violence. Now, the contract that covers nearly 20,000 dockworkers is set to expire, and businesses that trade in everything from apples to iPhones are worried about disruptions just as the crush of cargo for the back-to-school and holiday seasons begins. With contentious issues including benefits and job security on the table, smooth sailing is no guarantee. On one side is the International Longshore and Warehouse Union, with its tradition of fierce activism

Small desert town will remember

One of the few signs of this mining town´s most celebrated resident sits out on its lonely eastern flanks, disappearing into the desert like a dusty after-thought. Harry Reid Road is paved for just a few hundred yards before it turns to dirt, on its way to the town cemetery, where many of its namesake´s family members are buried. There´s an elementary school in his name nearby. When it comes to his obvious mark on this town, Reid´s legacy is scant, and that´s how the U.S. Senate majority leader has apparently always wanted it. Born and raised here, the miner´s son who

As many as 15 Somali-American men have left their homes in Minnesota in recent months to travel to the Middle East and join up with ISIS, the jihadist army at war with Syria and Iraq, according to Minnesota Public Radio. The fighters appear to have made the decision to go fight with Islamic State of Iraq and Syria/Levant while the terror group was fighting to overthrow Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad, but some may now be in Iraq, where the marauding group is seeking to topple Baghdad.

Annie Kasinecz has two different ways of explaining why, at age 27, she still lives with her mom. In the first version — the optimistic one — she says that she is doing the sensible thing by living rent-free as she plans her next career move. After graduating from Loyola University Chicago, Kasinecz struggled to support herself in the midst of the recession, working a series of unsatisfying jobs — selling ads at the soon-to-be bankrupt Sun-Times, bagging groceries at Whole Foods, bartending — in order to pay down her student loans. But she inevitably grew frustrated with each job

WASHINGTON – Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal on Saturday night accused President Barack Obama and other Democrats of waging wars against religious liberty and education and said that a rebellion is brewing in the U.S. with people ready for "a hostile takeover" of the nation´s capital. Jindal spoke at the annual conference hosted by the Faith and Freedom Coalition, a group led by longtime Christian activist Ralph Reed. Organizers said more than 1,000 evangelical leaders attended the three-day gathering. Republican officials across the political spectrum concede that evangelical voters continue to play a critical role in GOP politics. "I can sense right now

The Border Patrol will fly nearly 300 Central American migrants from south Texas to California for processing, an official said Saturday, as the government seeks to ease the workload on agents at the nation´s busiest corridor for illegal crossings. There will be two flights Monday with 140 passengers each — one bound for San Diego and one for El Centro, about 100 miles east of San Diego, said Paul Beeson, chief of the Border Patrol´s San Diego sector. The two flights were expected to continue every three days, Beeson told The Associated Press, but it´s unclear for how long. They will be

BAGHDAD -- Sunni militants who have been sweeping through northern Iraq shifted their focus to Anbar province, taking two strategic towns in the volatile region west of Baghdad. Heavily armed Shiite rivals, meanwhile, paraded in several cities in a show of force that underlines risks that the conflict could be headed toward a sectarian showdown. A guide to the events that unfolded Saturday: CAPTURED TOWNS Spearheaded by al-Qaida breakaway group the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, Sunni fighters took the town of Qaim on the Syrian border after a daylong battle Friday, while Rawah along the Euphrates River fell on Saturday.

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.

By 10 p.m. on Sept. 11, 2012, when Hillary Clinton received a call from President Obama, she was one of the most thoroughly briefed officials in Washington on the unfolding disaster in Benghazi, Libya. (Snip) She had no doubt that a terrorist attack had been launched against America on the anniversary of 9/11. However, when Hillary picked up the phone and heard Obama’s voice, she learned the president had other ideas in mind. With less than two months before Election Day, he was still boasting that he had al?Qaeda on the run. If the truth about Benghazi became known, it would blow that argument out of the water.

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

Hillary Clinton´s multimillion dollar fortune has caused some negative headlines during the media tour for the release of her new book "Hard Choices," which is widely seen as a prelude to a potential 2016 presidential campaign. Clinton responded to criticism of her wealth in an interview with the Guardian newspaper published Saturday night by suggesting Americans won´t be concerned about the more than $100 million her family has reportedly earned in recent years because they´re not "truly well off." "They don´t see me as part of the problem," Clinton said of Americans who are upset about income inequality, adding, "Because we

There are times that I have senior moments and forget certain names and events but after the recent Obama Iraq war implosion, I´m convinced most political pundits are suffering from them as well. What is unusual is that this revision of history is being committed by conservatives who should know better. Recent commentary by Glenn Beck, George Will and Charles Krauthammer indicate that they have significant memory lapses about why we went to war in Iraq. They now suggest that it was a wrong decision whereas my complaint is that we took too long to invade and oust Saddam Hussein.

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

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 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

US Secretary of State John Kerry has arrived in Iraq´s capital, Baghdad as Sunni insurgents expand their control of towns across north-western Iraq. In Egypt on Sunday, Mr Kerry warned that Sunni militants Isis´ "ideology of violence and repression is a threat not only to Iraq but to the entire region". On Sunday rebels--spearheaded by Isis militants--captured border crossings to Syria and Jordan. The strategically important airport in the northern Tal Afar has also fallen. The town controls the main road from the Syrian border to Mosul, Iraq´s second biggest city, which was captured by the rebels two weeks ago.

With much of the Obama administration´s foreign policy in tatters, John Kerry is clear on at least one goal he hopes to achieve by the end of his time as secretary of state: having lesbian, bisexual, and transgender ambassadors representing the United States. In remarks to a GLIFAA (formerly Gays and Lesbians in Foreign Affairs Agencies) Pride event in the Ben Franklin Room at the State Department, the secretary ran through a litany of accomplishments by the Obama administration that benefit the "LGBT/gay community." During his speech, Kerry said that, if confirmed, Ted Osius (nominated by President Obama for the

A hundred years ago next week, in the small Balkan city of Sarajevo, Serbian nationalists murdered the heir to the throne of Austria-Hungary and his wife. People were shocked but not particularly worried. Sadly, there had been many political assassinations in previous years—the king of Italy, two Spanish prime ministers, the Russian czar, President William McKinley. None had led to a major crisis. Yet just as a pebble can start a landslide, this killing set off a series of events that, in five weeks, led Europe into a general war.The U.S. under President Woodrow Wilson intended to stay out of

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
