Tighter security ordered for
some U.S.-bound flights

CNN, by Jim Sciutto and Evan Perez

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 7/2/2014 5:22:49 PM

The Obama administration is stepping up security for some flights headed to the United States from Europe and the Middle East, reflecting heightened concern that terrorists are developing more sophisticated explosives designed to avoid airport screening. Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said in a statement that he has directed the Transportation Security Administration to "implement enhanced security measures in the coming days" at selected overseas airports. "We will work to ensure these necessary steps pose as few disruptions to travelers as possible," Johnson said in a statement. "We are sharing recent and relevant information with our foreign allies and are consulting the

How about delousing of planes used to relocate Central American refugees? Less consequence to our citizens, perhaps, but much greater probability.

Dittos, #2! Commercial airlines and public transportation have been infected with lice and who knows what else. We´re overloading the medical system, and haven´t even begun to deal with the unconscionable treatment of our vets. Yet 70 percent of our border patrol is apparently minding unaccompanied, illegal minors.

Our borders are not being secured, and our national security and sovereignty is being deliberately threatened by our President. This is pure and simple treason.

This is a collaborative effort between al nusra and al qaeda in yemen. The yemenese bombmakers have supposedly developed something that can´t detected. al nusra fighters with American and European passports will be used to test them out. Zippy sure does have these guys on the run.

I´d prefer that any muzzie be prevented from boarding an airplane and NO MORE be imported into the country. We already have 26 or 27 jihadist training camps for which the FBI says that can´t do anything about them.

TIME, by Mirren Gidda    Original Article
Posted By: earlybird- 7/16/2014 1:37:40 PM     Post Reply
UK police have arrested 660 alleged pedophiles following a six-month investigation. The suspects include doctors, teachers, scout leaders, care workers and former police officers. The UK’s National Crime Agency said Wednesday that the operation occurred across the UK and involved 45 separate police forces. The agency estimated that over 400 children have been protected as a result. The operation, which was kept secret until the arrests were made, involved targeting those accessing pedophilic images online. A total of 39 of those arrested were registered sex offenders though the vast majority was unknown to the police. Those who have been charged

As cease-fire with Hamas fails to
take shape, Netanyahu says,
´Our answer is fire’
Washington Post, by Griff Witte and William Booth    Original Article
Posted By: earlybird- 7/15/2014 4:59:09 PM     Post Reply
JERUSALEM — Plans for a truce devolved into threats of a wider war Tuesday as the first significant attempt to end more than a week’s worth of round-the-clock fire between Israel and Hamas ended before it had even begun. The unravelling of an Egyptian cease-fire proposal offered little immediate hope for a diplomatic solution to a conflict that has left more than 190 Palestinians in Gaza dead and that on Tuesday claimed its first Israeli fatality. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu gave the military authorization to use “full force” against militants in Gaza and vowed that Hamas and its allies

Native Americans Killed
And Ate Dumbo - archaeologists

The primitive folk assessed by many archaeologists as being the original native Americans - that is, the Clovis people - killed and ate the lovable prehistoric elephants that once inhabited the continent alongside them, scientists have found.The proto-dumbo species in question is known as the gomphothere. Until recently, it had been thought that gomphotheres had disappeared from North America well before human beings showed up, but new fossil evidence appears to show that at least one cuddly tusker was brutally killed by Clovis people around 13,400 years ago. The luckless pachyderm was then scoffed by its peckish assailants. "This is the

After that, his tweets stopped. A call to the airport has not been returned and a Border Patrol spokesman reached Tuesday morning said he was unaware of the situation, but was seeking more information.

Glenn Beck joined Bill O’Reilly last night to talk about his planned border visit and the “angry death threats” he’s gotten from conservatives for doing so. Beck said he understands the anger, but insisted he has a “responsibility to God” to put aside politics and help people in need. (Video)Beck said he’s raised $1.8 million dollars so far, but acknowledges the frustration many have with the broken immigration system. He said there are “some people [that] believe that I’m just gonna make things worse” and even “encouraging people to come here.” Here’s where and why I think Beck is seriously

Alzheimer’s risk cut in half by
exercising for an hour a week, one-third
of cases avoidable, U.K. study suggests
National Post [Canada], by Laura Donnelly    Original Article
Posted By: earlybird- 7/14/2014 2:11:40 PM     Post Reply
Just one hour of exercise a week can halve the chance of getting Alzheimer’s disease, claims a study that ranks the seven lifestyle threats driving the rising levels of dementia. The research by Cambridge University says one in three cases of the condition could be prevented by increased activity levels, a cut in smoking and tackling health problems such as obesity and diabetes. The study, published in the Lancet Neurology Monday, is the first to quantify the combined impact of lifestyle factors influencing dementia. It identifies exercise as the most significant protection against the condition. Those who failed to do three 20-minute bursts

Theresa May´s judgement questioned over
botched appointment of Baroness
Butler-Sloss to lead child abuse probe
Telegraph [UK], by Christopher Hope and Georgia Graham    Original Article
Posted By: earlybird- 7/14/2014 1:51:47 PM     Post Reply
Theresa May’s judgment has been called into question by MPs after a former judge who was appointed to lead an inquiry into allegations of historical child sex abuse by establishment figures resigned just days after she was appointed. Baroness Butler-Sloss stepped down as the head of a major inquiry into child abuse claims following criticism of her links to the establishment. Mrs May, the Home Secretary, appointed Lady Butler-Sloss last week to lead a sweeping inquiry into how the state, church, BBC and other public bodies handled allegations of child sexual abuse.

Hamas lays out truce terms with Israel

GAZA CITY - The Palestinian Hamas movement said on Monday it would not end hostilities with Israel without concessions by the Jewish state and that no serious efforts towards a truce had been made. "Talk of a ceasefire requires real and serious efforts, which we haven´t seen so far," Hamas MP Mushir al-Masri told AFP in Gaza City. Masri said Hamas would only negotiate on the basis of a set of concessions it wants to see Israel agree to. Those include the lifting of Israel´s eight-year blockade on the Gaza Strip, the opening of the Rafah border crossing with Egypt and the

WASHINGTON — Bowe Bergdahl, the Army sergeant who spent nearly five years as a Taliban captive in Afghanistan, was returned to regular duty Monday with a desk job that makes him available to Army investigators for questioning about his disappearance in 2009.

His exact administrative duties were not immediately disclosed, but a Pentagon spokesman, Army Col. Steve Warren, said

The Reagan Roots of Reform Conservatism
National Review Online, by Quin Hillyer    Original Article
Posted By: earlybird- 7/14/2014 11:57:24 AM     Post Reply
There’s a movement sweeping the land, and if you want to call it “reform conservatism,” I agree that it’s good marketing. It promises a freshness and idealism that are appealing. What is reform conservatism? Let’s quote from one of its key documents (emphases added): Republicans . . . have always taken the side of the individual, whose freedoms are threatened by the big government that Democratic [ideas have] spawned. Our case for the individual is stronger than ever. A defense of the individual against government was never more needed. And we will continue to mount it. But we will redefine and broaden
