168 Children Rescued in
Annual Prostitution Sweep

ABC News, by Cecilia Vega

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 6/24/2014 4:21:08 AM

Oakland, California´s red light district is known as "the track." It is a place where prostitutes line block after block, many of them runaways. This weekend, the track was just one of many targets in a nationwide crackdown on child prostitution. The FBI, along with 230 federal, state and local law enforcement agencies, launched its eighth Operation Cross Country, arresting 281 alleged pimps and rescuing 168 child prostitutes in more than 100 cities, from Tampa to Denver to Los Angeles. Authorities said it was the largest number of pimps and children taken off the street for Cross Country. "These are our kids," said FBI

Some may be "our" kids; the rest are cartel kidnap victims.

Pimping should be a capital crime, even though it´s considered a noble profession in the ´hood.

Obama now in all-out free fall
Washington Times, by Joseph Curl    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 6/26/2014 5:14:17 AM     Post Reply
President Obama is now reaching terminal velocity, like a skydiver plunging toward earth. Except he doesn’t have a parachute. There’s a mighty splat coming soon. With his approval rating at 40 percent, down 6 points from early June, and just 29 percent of Americans convinced the country is on the “right track,” the president is doubling down on his strategy of blaming Republicans for his failures. And he’s shifting into hyperpartisan drive, traveling the country to campaign for Democrats, many of whom wish he’d just stay away. Worse, the news just keeps getting well, worse: The Veterans Affairs scandal is blazing, with

Sales of Hillary Clinton’s New
Memoir Drop Sharply in 2nd Week

Sales of Hillary Rodham Clinton’s new memoir, “Hard Choices,” declined 43.5 percent to 48,000 copies in its second week on the shelves, according to Nielsen BookScan. The sales figures put pressure on the publisher, Simon & Schuster, which paid Mrs. Clinton a multimillion-dollar advance to write about her time at the State Department and has invested heavily in the book’s rollout, one of the biggest of the year. About 85,000 copies were sold in the week after the book’s June 10 release, according to BookScan, a subscription service that tracks sales at over 80 percent of book vendors in the United States.

Obama Mocks Climate Change Skeptics:
It’s Not Some ‘Liberal Plot’
Mediaite, by Josh Feldman    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 6/26/2014 5:07:19 AM     Post Reply
President Obama spoke to the League of Conservation Voters Wednesday night about climate change, and he took a few minutes to mock Republican climate change skeptics who state very openly they “don’t believe anything scientists say” and actually believe it’s a “hoax” or a “liberal plot.” The president found it amazing that there are Republicans who constantly preface comments on climate change with the phrase “I’m not a scientist.” To Obama, that sounds a lot like “I accept that man-made climate change is real, but if I say so out loud, I will be run out of town by a bunch

Bowe Bergdahl remains in legal limbo

WASHINGTON - The U.S. Army sergeant recently released from captivity by the Taliban is in something of a legal limbo as the investigation continues into why and how he left his post in Afghanistan five years ago and ended up in insurgents´ hands. Senior Army officials said Wednesday that Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl has not yet been interviewed by the two-star general appointed last week to investigate the matter. They said he has not been read his legal rights and has not asked for a lawyer. But the officials said the military team helping him recover from his imprisonment has told him

Iraq Producing Bizarre Mideast Dynamic

WASHINGTON -- Strange bedfellows, indeed. The Obama administration has found itself in a foreign policy and national security pickle of rare complexity with the apparent entry of Syria into the Iraq conflict on the side of the U.S.-backed government in Baghdad, as well as active Iranian military support for Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki. Washington already was toeing a delicate line with Shiite Iran, which the U.S. deems the world´s most active state sponsor of terrorism, over their common short-term interest in turning back the advance of militant Sunni rebels in Iraq. Now, to its dismay, Syrian President Bashar Assad - regarded in

Talk radio: Chris McDaniel’s not our fault

If Chris McDaniel thought the endorsements of conservative talk-radio hosts would give him a Dave Brat-style boost in Mississippi, Tuesday night taught him otherwise. But that doesn’t mean talk radio heavyweights on the right like Laura Ingraham, Sean Hannity and Mark Levin are taking the blame for the tea party challenger’s loss to Sen. Thad Cochran. They had plenty of excuses: They aren’t kingmakers; the establishment GOP gamed the system; the mainstream media was in the bag for the incumbent. ngraham, who elevated Brat’s profile in his Virginia district further than his own campaign could ever have done, said McDaniel should

Scott Brown woos Mitt Romney now

What a difference two years make. In 2012, Scott Brown was avoiding Mitt Romney like the plague as he tried to get re­elected to the U.S. Senate amidst a tidal wave of Wall Street bucks and a million no-info Obamaphone-wielding voters washing over him to cast a ballot for the fake Indian. The last thing Scott Brown wanted to do in 2012 was tie himself to a perceived loser like Mitt. But that was then, and this is now. That was Massachusetts, and this is New Hampshire. Mitt Romney is riding high on a surge of buyers’ remorse, and it’s Scott Brown who’s

With a surprisingly wide margin of victory, Congressman James Lankford won the Oklahoma Republican U.S. Senate primary, defeating former Speaker of the State House of Representatives T.W. Shannon by 23 points and avoiding a runoff election. Lankford now becomes the prohibitive favorite to replace outgoing Senator Tom Coburn, who is retiring with two years remaining in his current term. This was a very different race from the one taking place in Mississippi. Despite negative ads run against Lankford by conservative groups, the Oklahoma contest was not an example of an “establishment” Republican or RINO versus a Tea Party candidate. In

Cyndi Lauper is one fabulous and fun sage. The girl had it goin´ on way back in 1984 when she sang "Money Changes Everything." It does. Oh, I hear you. Everybody knows that. But not so fast. Fresh off her "we were dead broke" when we left the White House gaffe, Hillary Clinton told the British newspaper The Guardian that people in the middle class "don´t see me as part of the problem." Why? Because, she says, when it comes to income inequality, "we [Bill and I] pay ordinary income tax, unlike a lot of people who are truly well off ...

Rep. Charlie Rangel’s
Race Too Close To Call

Twenty-two term incumbent Rep. Charlie Rangel was locked in a close race Wednesday morning against his Democratic challenger State Sen. Adriano Espaillat. With 100 percent of precincts reporting in New York’s 13th District, Rangel has 47.4 percent and Espaillat has 43.6 percent, with just 1,828 votes separating the two. Rangel declared victory earlier in the evening in a speech to supporters, but the Associated Press said they would not call the race because an “an undetermined number of absentee and provisional ballots” were ”outstanding” and election officials told the AP “no further information” would be “released on those ballots tonight.” It was

Oklahoma Primary Results: Lankford

Updated 9:54 p.m. | Rep. James Lankford has won the Oklahoma primary, and now the Republican is likely headed to the Senate. The Oklahoman defeated former state Speaker T.W. Shannon and several lesser-known candidates to win the Republican nomination Tuesday. In the strongly conservative state of Oklahoma, Lankford is all but certain to become the next senator after November. Lankford is on track to succeed Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., who is stepping down at the end of this Congress. The congressman had the momentum — and the money — heading into Tuesday’s primary. But he also had some built in advantages from the

WASHINGTON -- The Washington establishment delivered a punch to the gut of the tea party movement Tuesday as Mississippi Republican Sen. Thad Cochran, a mainstream conservative with more than 40 years congressional experience, narrowly turned back a challenge from state Sen. Chris McDaniel. Unsuccessful in earlier Republican primaries in Kentucky, Georgia and North Carolina, outside conservative organizations and tea party groups had invested millions in Mississippi in hopes of knocking out six-term Sen. Cochran. They fell short Tuesday night after a nasty, costly primary, and have few chances to reverse the trend in the remaining contests before November´s elections. The

“We don’t care about money here.” “Well, that’s because you have it.” “Would you repeat that?” “You don’t care about money because you’ve always had it.” —“The Aviator,” 2004 This Telegraph interview with Chelsea Clinton reveals a number of facets of the once and future first daughter which make her the perfect representative of her Millennial generation.

Senior Obama administration officials’ closed-door briefing to senators Tuesday night revealed that the White House did not anticipate and was not prepared for the rise of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL or ISIS), which has wreaked havoc in Iraq and seized many key cities in recent weeks. Top State Department and Defense Department officials joined senators Tuesday evening for a briefing on the quickly developing chaos in Iraq and future U.S. plans for a response. Sources familiar with the brief said that the administration officials repeated talking points issued over the past several days in both open and

A week after an NBC News poll showed that the American people had lost faith in Obama´s competence and ability to lead, a new CBS News/New York Times poll has even worse news for a president embattled by his own incompetence, arrogance, and failed policies. In just one month, the president´s job approval rating has shifted a full 9 points against him. Though Obama was still upside on approval by 5 points (43-48%) back in May, he now faces a 14 point deficit of 40-54%. In just one month, disapproval of Obama´s foreign policy has skyrocketed a full 10 points

With Iraq in danger of falling apart, new troubles on the Mexican border and other problems mounting up in Washington, President Obama on Thursday will try to the shift the narrative by reconnecting with average Americans. The president will travel to Minneapolis on Thursday and spend a day “in the shoes” of a mystery woman identified only as Rebekah. The woman, whose last name has yet to be revealed, recently wrote a letter to Mr. Obama, inspiring the president to visit her and learn more about her daily struggles.

Thad Cochran’s political resurrection began with a campaign shakeup and ended with a Hail Mary television ad. Just three weeks ago, in the dead of night on June 3, the Mississippi senator’s staff sat shaken and dejected, crestfallen at the results of a primary that deprived the six-term incumbent of an electoral majority. With Cochran forced into a runoff fight against an aggressive and energetic challenger, a dark mood shadowed his backers in Washington and Mississippi.Yet almost immediately, the Cochran coalition began bouncing back. Even on that gloomy night of June 3, Cochran adviser Stuart Stevens was insisting to staffers: “We’re

Hillary Clinton has a “secret deal” with her top aide Huma Abedin to keep her troublesome husband Anthony Weiner out of the spotlight, sources tell Page Six, as the former secretary of state mulls a run for president. Clinton aides have insisted Weiner “stay out of public life for two years,” and that he “avoid causing any further embarrassment to Huma or Clinton,” according to our sources. The former sexting pol has been noticeably absent at recent public events attended by Abedin, including the Gordon Parks Foundation Awards Dinner in Manhattan earlier this month.

Lois Lerner, the controversial director of the tax-exempt organizations division at the Internal Revenue Service, has a long sordid history of targeting conservatives. Under the direction of Lois Lerner, the Federal Election Commission sued the Christian Coalition in the 1990s. She harassed the Christian Coalition for three election cycles. Eventually, she lost her case. At one point Lerner even asked a targeted conservative if Pat Robertson prayed over him. (Sound familiar?) In 1996, while at the FEC, Lois Lerner harassed Republican Senate candidate Al Salvi and made him this outrageous offer, “Promise me you will never run for office again, and

National conservative groups are angry after incumbent Mississippi Sen. Thad Cochran pulled off a victory in the state’s GOP run-off — likely because of his campaign’s outreach to Democratic voters. “It’s disgraceful that self-described GOP leaders like Mitch McConnell, John McCain, the Chamber of Commerce and the NRSC would champion a campaign platform of pork barrel spending and insider deal-making, while recruiting Democrats to show up at the polls,” Matt Kibbe of FreedomWorks said after the results came in. Tuesday’s closely-watched run-off came after conservative state Sen. Chris McDaniel edged Cochran in votes in the initial election earlier this month.

Republicans are in the strongest position to win back the Senate since losing it eight years ago. Over several months, the party has expanded its range of targeted seats, and the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) has helped defeat insurgents it didn’t want representing the GOP in the midterm elections. This sober realization came to Democrats on Wednesday, as Tuesday night’s primary results showed they cannot count on Tea Party candidates upsetting more-electable incumbents. And Democrats are increasingly realizing that President Obama’s approval rating will probably remain mired at 45 percent or lower until
