Washington - Three U.S. troops and a working dog were killed by a bomb blast on Friday in southern Afghanistan, a U.S. official said, speaking on condition of anonymity. No information was immediately available about the incident. The NATO-led International Security Assistance Force, or ISAF, in Afghanistan said in a statement three service members died following an improvised explosive device attack. ISAF did not provide the nationality of the victims.

Comments:
This IS how our wars usually start, by a fickle dRATS pResident who lets events spin out of control. Rather than seek a quick, decisive blow to the enemy, he and Congress dithers while more lives are lost. Then, the blame game... Oh, this is definitely on 0bama´s head, beginning with letting the five worst terrorist from GITMO back into the Middle East and his total lack of a foreign policy that is in OUR favor.

If this country had any cajones whatsoever instead of being pansies, the military would go back to WWII tactics and put an end to these muzzie psychopaths once and for all.

Uber may not be worth
$17 billion valuation

Posted By: EagleEye- 6/21/2014 12:27:14 AM     Post Reply
When Uber, the app that pairs drivers with those seeking rides, completed a round of financing earlier this month that gave it a $17 billion valuation, jaws dropped across Wall Street. The tech startup has grown 6,000 percent since 2010 — making it the most valuable private tech startup. These warnings signs include regulatory push-back from cities and questions about its ability to ensure its drivers are licensed and insured. For example, California legalized ride-sharing last year, yet the state still finds itself butting heads with Uber over some basic violations — such as drivers not being licensed.

Los Angeles - Chelsea Clinton’s contract as an NBC “special correspondent” has come under intense public questioning given that she hasn’t been featured on-air since January despite being on a $600,000 annual salary deal, as reported by Politico. (Snip) “This is a business and when you are the daughter of a former president, it is not the same as everyone else’s contracts. They have information and can call up anybody – they are used for their resources. They aren’t hiring Chelsea because she is a brilliant [journalist],” a source told FOX411. “The company thought it was worth it, the money loss is chopped liver to them.

Boeing missile defense deal
as crucial test looms

Washington - The Pentagon is restructuring a $3.48 billion contract with Boeing Co for management of the troubled U.S. homeland missile defense program, said two sources familiar with the situation. The system, which faces a critical test on Sunday, has failed to hit a dummy missile in five of eight tests since the Bush administration rushed to deploy the system in 2004 to counter growing threats by North Korea. It has not hit a target since 2008. (Snip) The program, long a political football for U.S. lawmakers, remains the only U.S. defense against long-range missiles that could carry chemical, biological or nuclear warheads.

Egypt Has a Sexual Violence Problem

Cairo - There is a fierce battle raging in Egypt, and it’s not the one between Islamists and military rulers — the two factions that dominate most coverage of my country these days. The real battle, the one that will determine whether Egypt frees itself of authoritarianism, is between the patriarchy — established and upheld by the state, the street and at home — and women, who will no longer accept this status quo. (Snip) Last week, Human Rights Watch released a report on what it has called an “epidemic of sexual violence” in Egypt. A few days later, yet more sexual violence took place at a march against sexual violence.

Officials Plan Adjustments as
New York City Slows to 25 M.P.H.

Mayor Bill de Blasio’s traffic safety push yielded perhaps its most significant change early on Friday, when the State Legislature approved a plan to reduce the default speed limit in New York City to 25 miles per hour. Now comes the hard part: retooling the highly choreographed traffic dance in a city of 14,000 taxis, 12,700 signalized intersections and 6,000 roadway miles. The city will have some time. The reduction from 30 m.p.h. cannot begin until 90 days after Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo signs the bill into law. (A spokesman said Mr. Cuomo was expected to do so.) In the interim, transportation officials have begun plotting the details of the change,

Presbyterians Vote to Divest
Holdings to Pressure Israel

Detroit - After passionate debate over how best to help break the deadlock between Israel and the Palestinians, the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) voted on Friday at its general convention to divest from three companies that it says supply Israel with equipment used in the occupation of Palestinian territory. The vote, by a count of 310 to 303, was watched closely in Washington and Jerusalem and by Palestinians as a sign of momentum for a movement to pressure Israel to stop building settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem and end the occupation, with a campaign known as B.D.S., for Boycotts, Divestments and Sanctions.

Fisa court grants extension of licence

Washington - US intelligence agencies have made a fifth attempt to extend their bulk collection of American telephone records – more than a year after the controversial practice was first revealed by National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden. Despite repeated calls from Congress and President Obama for the mass gathering of private US phone records to be banned, a court has approved the request in secret, allowing the NSA to continue collecting metadata until 12 September 2014. In a joint statement released late on Friday afternoon, the justice department and director of national intelligence, James Clapper, said it was necessary to

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

Horace Silver, top US jazz musician, dies

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.

It has become a daily frightening occurrence, hearing politicians, commentators, pundits, and stunned Americans say, “That´s outrageous!” “He can´t do that!” “No way!” “It´s against federal law!” “They have no legal authority to force us to do that!” These comments are in response to the daily unprecedented out-of-control tyranny handed down by Obama and his operatives. We are talking arrogance with a capital A coming out of the Obama administration. For example: the GOP was moving too slow in caving to Obama´s amnesty scheme, so Obama said, Heck with it, I´ll bypass everyone and make it happen. Obama sent a

WASHINGTON -- The commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service refused to apologize to Congress for losing e-mails related to its targeting of conservative groups, saying it´s still attempting to recover the data and it´s too soon to know how many e-mails are missing. "I don´t think an apology is owed," Commissioner John Koskinen told the House Ways and Means Committee. "Every e-mail has been preserved that we have." In his most contentious hearing since becoming commissioner six months ago, Koskinen testified about efforts the IRS has made to recover e-mails that were lost when Lois Lerner´s computer hard drive crashed

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

Fox News host Bill O´Reilly dissed conservative talk radio host and icon Rush Limbaugh at an event in New York City Wednesday evening. According to the Daily Beast, O´Reilly told the audience, “I’m not Rush Limbaugh or Al Franken, where everything has to fit into my worldview… I’m a fact-based guy. A lot of people don’t understand that.” O´Reilly made his remarks about being a "fact-based guy" days after he tried to convince his viewers that House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) did not lose his primary race last week to Dave Brat because of the amnesty issue.

The Obama administration’s claim to have been surprised by the wave of children flooding over out borders may turn out to be another political lie of the year. Sundance of Conservative Treehouse noticed a very peculiar advertisement: On January 29th of this year, the federal government posted an advertisement seeking bids for a vendor contract to handle “Unaccompanied Alien Children“. Not just any contract mind you, but a very specific contract – for a very specific number of unaccompanied minors: 65,000. • Why would DHS and ICE be claiming “surprise” by the current influx of unaccompanied minors on the border

President Obama told his Mexican counterpart in a phone call Thursday that immigrants crossing into the U.S. illegally won’t qualify for legalized status or deferred deportation, including children. The White House said Mr. Obama and Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto discussed “a regional strategy” to address the surge of unaccompanied children coming from Central America, through Mexico, to the U.S. With thousands of children trying to enter the U.S. illegally in recent months, Vice President Joseph R.

The U.S. is leading by example in promoting lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered (LGBT) rights at home and around the world, Secretary of State John Kerry said Thursday. He said the federal government recognizes same-sex marriages of foreign diplomats stationed in the U.S., and it expects all other countries to do the same in their treatment of U.S. personnel deployed abroad. “Let me be clear: We oppose any effort by any country to deny visas for spouses of American staff,” he said. “It’s discriminatory, it’s unacceptable, it has no place in the 21st century.”

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton continues to tour the nation, promoting her new book, Hard Choices, and a possible 2016 candidacy. Her book tour, filled with gaffes and missteps, has lagged and perhaps failed to live up to expectations. But that´s not all. Her book, when compared to former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin´s political memoir, Going Rogue, has woefully underperformed in sales. And it’s pretty cut and dried. Palin´s book, which was released the same year President Obama moved into the White House, sold approximately 496,000 copies in its first week of release, according to figures cited by the New York Times.
