Want to teach at Guantanamo Bay?
Now is your chance

USA Today, by Jessica Durando

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 6/27/2014 3:04:51 PM

Teachers, the Department of Defense may have the right career opportunity for you. The government says "many vacancies" are available at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, for a salary range of $50.50 to $101 per day. The purpose? To provide services to children of military officers, K-12, as a substitute for the regular teacher, according to a job listing posted Wednesday on federalgovernmentjobs.us. No written test is required. Relocation expenses will not be authorized. And applications will be accepted from U.S. citizens within the "commuting area" of Guantanamo. More from the job posting: Do you want to work for an exciting educational

Comments:
More 0bama "shovel ready" jobs paying just "his" minimum wage. Guess being on an island, no place to spend it.

"Within commuting area" means only Cubans need apply.

I had to read and re-read this to make certain that I wasn´t crazy. Of course there are no family dependents at Guantanamo. Is this for real? Is the government really advertising for this? Horrors!

So if I either live in the Keys and have a good boat to commute with or own an airplane / helicopter (and can get cleared for landing on Guantanamo) I too can be a teacher there?

We have a neighbor we would like to send. Might even take up a collection towards the relocation.

The Hobby Lobby
Backlash Hits Whole Foods

Whole Foods isn’t dropping contraception coverage for employees but nevertheless, it’s facing a Hobby Lobby backlash. By Wednesday afternoon, more than 7,000 people signed an online petition urging Whole Foods to stop carrying products from Eden Foods, one of the 82 companies trying to opt out of covering contraception in health insurance following the Supreme Court’s ruling. The letter asks Whole Foods, which carries more than 2,000 Eden Foods products, to stand up against companies like Eden who are fighting to deny their employees basic health care. “While individual-level boycotting of Eden Foods may not have

North Korea fired two short-range missiles off the east coast of the Korean Peninsula early Wednesday, a South Korean Defense Ministry official said. No damage or injures were reported. The projectiles flew more than 310 miles (almost 500 kilometers), the official said. Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has ordered his Cabinet to look into the apparent launch. The Japanese government intends to lodge an official protest with the North Korean government. North Korea has carried out a series of missile and rocket launches into the sea in recent months, drawing criticism from South Korea, the United States and the United Nations.

The European Union is pressing the United States to lift its longstanding ban on crude oil exports through a sweeping trade and investment deal, according to a secret document from the negotiations obtained by The Washington Post. It´s not entirely surprising. The EU has made its desire for the right to import U.S. oil known since the U.S. started producing large amounts of it in the mid-2000s. It signaled again at the outset of trade negotiations, and its intentions have become even more clear since. This time, though, the EU is adding another argument: Instability on its Eastern flank threatens to cut off the supply of oil and natural gas

Houston, TX - A source told Breitbart Texas that an illegal immigrant from Guatemala is currently being treated for active tuberculosis (TB) at the University Medical Center (UMC) of El Paso. Dr. Elizabeth Lee Vliet--a preventive medicine physician and former Director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS)--has practices in Arizona and Texas. Vliet claimed that one of her patients, whose name can not be disclosed for confidentiality reasons, called her with fears that the TB-positive immigrant was putting other lives at risk. Vliet said her patient informed her that ICE and DHS would not take the illegal

A letter sent to the United Nations by Iraqi Ambassador Mohamed Ali Alhakim pertaining to the takeover of a chemical weapons facility has been made public. On June 12, the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) took over the depot, but weapons of mass destruction held in two bunkers still had not yet been destroyed. “The project management spotted at dawn on Thursday, 12 June 2014, through the camera surveillance system, the looting of some of the project equipment and appliances, before the terrorists disabled the surveillance system,” Ambassador Mohamed Ali Alhakim wrote in the letter dated June 30 to U.N.

   

 



 
Israel kills top Gaza militant, five
others in air strike - Gaza officials
Reuters, by Ori Lewis    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 7/8/2014 7:46:21 PM     Post Reply
Gaza - Israel assassinated a top local leader of the Islamic Jihad militant group in the northern Gaza Strip early on Wednesday, neighbours and hospital officials said, and five others including family members were also killed. An Israeli military spokeswoman said she had no initial details on the strike. The militant, Hafez Hamad, two brothers and his parents were killed when his house was bombed in an air strike in the town of Beit Hanoun in the northern Gaza Strip, Hamas media and Gaza interior ministry said. An unidentified woman in the house was also killed. That brought the death toll in Gaza to at least 22 since Israel launched its offensive

Washington - Sen. Robert Menendez, who has been dogged by a federal corruption probe, suggests he was the target of a Cuban intelligence smear plot over allegations -- which the FBI has discounted -- that he had sex with underage prostitutes in the Dominican Republic. The New Jersey Democrat told CNN in an exclusive interview on Tuesday that the Justice Department should look at any evidence it may have that he was the subject of a conspiracy by the regime to spread false allegations. Menendez said he has for years had a "firm position in opposition to the Cuban regime" on grounds that it violates human rights.

Couple calls the cops

A Florida couple called the cops after their crazed cat attacked them and trapped them in their home. Kush, a 4-year-old Russian Blue, lashed out at his owners, Teresa and James Gregory, in a fur-flying rampage that prompted calls to DeLand police. The cat was removed from the home by animal control and has been quarantined for 10 days following the Saturday night attack that left its owners with several bloody scratches on their legs and hands, according to Bay 9 News. They declined medical attention. Kush’s assault sounded a lot like the case of 22-pound Lux, whose feline tantrum drove his owners to hide in a locked room and call

Quinn: If Chicago needs

Gov. Pat Quinn on Tuesday said he is prepared to deploy Illinois State Troopers to boost Chicago´s efforts to combat violence -- but Mayor Rahm Emanuel hasn´t asked. "If they have a need for additional help, they should let us know," Quinn told reporters in an unrelated news conference on Tuesday. "I think it´s always based on their request. I´m not going to impose anything on any local municipality in the state or a big city like Chicago." Quinn´s comments came after a violent holiday weekend in Chicago that left 13 dead at least 58 wounded despite hundreds of additional officers assigned to city streets in that time period.

Atlanta - A government scientist cleaning out an old storage room at a research center near Washington made a startling discovery last week — decades-old vials of smallpox packed away and forgotten in a cardboard box. The six glass vials were intact and sealed, and scientists have yet to establish whether the virus is dead or alive, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Tuesday. (Snip) Officials said this is the first time in the U.S. that unaccounted-for smallpox has been discovered. At least one leading scientist raised the possibility that there are more such vials out there around the world.

Brooklyn DA announces

It is now easier to get high in Brooklyn. The borough’s district attorney Kenneth Thompson announced Tuesday he will no longer prosecute people with little or no criminal record who get caught with small amounts of weed. While the majority of such cases already end up with an eventual dismissal, those arrested from now on - with some exceptions - will be released before seeing a judge, according to a DA memo. Yet the revised approach will not be shared by cops and might even cause tension between the DA and the NYPD. “This new policy is a reasonable response to the thousands of low-level marijuana arrests that weigh down the

In response to warnings of a "credible threat", the US Transportation Security Administration announced on Sunday that passengers using airports with direct flights to the US could be made to switch on their mobile phones and other electronic devices to prove to security officials that the devices do not contain explosives.

White House requests $3.7 billion in
emergency funds for border crisis

The White House on Tuesday formally requested $3.7 billion in emergency funding from Congress to deal with an influx of Central American minors along the southern border. But the proposal was quickly met with broad skepticism among Republican lawmakers, who were doubtful that the package would be approved quickly — if at all. Administration officials said the request is part of a comprehensive strategy aimed at building more detention centers, adding immigration judges, and beefing up border patrols and air surveillance. President Obama has said he hopes such steps will both speed deportations and discourage adults from sending children on

Sarah Palin on Tuesday joined a growing chorus of Republicans calling for the impeachment of President Obama, writing in a Breitbart op-ed that the influx of young illegal immigrants over the southern border "is the last straw that makes the battered wife say, ´no mas.´ " Mixed/careless metaphors aside, this is nothing but bad news for Republicans — especially four months until the 2014 election. Palin is hardly the first GOP politician to raise the issue of impeachment over the past couple years. Others include Sens. James Inhofe (R-Okla.), Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) and Tim Scott (R-S.C.), Reps. Blake Farenthold (R-Tex.),

Despite fiery statements issued by Hamas spokesmen over the past 48 hours, it was obvious Tuesday night that the Islamist movement was searching for ways to rid itself of the current escalation. Hamas feels that it has been forced into a confrontation with Israel – one that it did not want at this stage because of its increased isolation and financial crisis. The massive Israeli air strikes on the Gaza Strip over the past 24 hours have surprised Hamas and other Palestinian groups. Hamas apparently expected a limited response to the recent rocket attacks on Israeli cities and towns. But as the

Starting next week, House Republicans will launch a highly visible—and likely tumultuous—three-week process of bringing to the floor legislation to authorize their promised lawsuit against President Obama over his use of executive actions. "In theory, you could report out a resolution tomorrow and vote on it," said a House GOP aide on Tuesday. "But that is not the approach [the leaders] want to take." Rather, the aim is to display—if not actually engage in—a more deliberative process, even if amid controversy. This drawn-out script builds toward a potentially dramatic floor vote held just days, or even hours, before the House adjourns on

WASHINGTON — Congressional Democrats said Tuesday that they had developed legislation to override the Supreme Court decision on contraceptives. The bill would ensure that women have access to coverage for birth control even if they work for businesses that have religious objections. The bill, developed in consultation with the Obama administration, would require for-profit corporations like Hobby Lobby Stores to provide and pay for contraceptive coverage, along with other preventive services, under the Affordable Care Act. The measure could be on the Senate floor as early as next week, Senate Democrats said. “Your health care decisions are not your boss’s

Fate hasn´t been kind to Hillary Clinton, at least not in its most recent phase. In 2008, when the plate was set for the national Democrats, she lost the nomination to Barack Obama, of scant years and no gravitas, who soared out of nowhere to wrench destiny from her on the unspecified promise of "change." Now, "change" has come, and people don´t like it. Iraq changed from a safe, stable ally (just ask Obama) to a terrorist haven, one of the reasons why, though no fellow Democrats seem likely to edge her, her chances of winning the White House seem dim.

So just who is in charge in Barack Obama´s White House? ABC´s Jonathan Karl on Tuesday asked White House press secretary why the letter from the White House to Gov. Rick Perry (R-TX) inviting him to a meeting with President Obama regarding the Texas border crisis was from Valerie Jarrett. While it´s routine for staff to draft such letters for elected officials, matters of such magnitude and to other elected officials of stature are almost always in the name of the principle. The president´s spokesman, when asked why the letter was from Jarrett rather than the President, said "Valerie spends a

Despite Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson vowing to "stem the tide" of unaccompanied illegal minors across the southern border with Mexico, thousands more are expected to enter the United States by the end of the year. With the system being overwhelmed, Border Patrol agents are concerned about minors who have admitted to being MS-13 members, a brutal street gang from El Salvador that has been successful in infiltrating American communities. Agents are also concerned about minors who have committed acts like torture and murder in their home countries before heading north to the United States. "We have six minors in Nogales

Screenwriter James Vanderbilt will make his directorial debut with the film, which will also star Cate Blanchett. Robert Redford has signed on to play Dan Rather in Truth, a film based on the 2005 memoir Truth and Duty: The Press, the President, and the Privilege of Power. The book, written by Rather´s producer Mary Mapes, centers on the firestorm that erupted in September of 2004 after Rather reported that George W. Bush had received special treatment while serving in the Air National Guard during the Vietnam War, a report that was based on documents that turned out to be forgeries.

Kirsten Powers snapped at Bill O’Reilly tonight after he told her she doesn’t know what she’s talking about on immigration, and told O’Reilly she’s tired of him mocking liberals every day on every single issue just because “they care about people.” Powers argued that O’Reilly’s getting his facts wrong and that immigrants coming to the U.S. back in the day (like the Irish) were poor and uneducated, much like the immigrants O’Reilly is so worried about today. O’Reilly dismissed Powers and told her, “You don’t seem to really know what you’re talking about.” That really set Powers off. “I am

President Barack Obama does not believe his temporary amnesty program for illegal immigrant children has exacerbated the border crisis even though the number of illegal immigrant kids crossing the border spiked the year after he unilaterally enacted the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program in 2012. In fact, Obama thinks programs like DACA and a comprehensive amnesty bill are ways to solve the border crisis. Addressing the press Wednesday after meeting with Texas Governor Rick Perry to discuss the border crisis in Dallas, Obama, when asked if programs like DACA have caused or contributed to the crisis,
