Ahmed Chalabi, Discredited
WMD Figure, Floated for Iraq PM

Fox News & Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 7/5/2014 1:41:36 PM

Iraq is looking for someone to put the country back together again — if that’s even possible — and one of the most disgraced names from the war era is suddenly part of the discussion. Ahmed Chalabi, the Shiite politician whose discredited information about weapons of mass destruction was part of the Bush administration’s justification for invading in 2003, is being talked about as a candidate for the prime minister post. Chalabi, 69, a former Iraqi exile leader who lived for years in the United States and Britain, has won at least the partial support of a bloc of parliament loyal to Muqtada al-Sadr, the radical Shiite cleric.

Comments:
The dRATS continue with their version of Baghdad Bob with the lie that there were no weapons of mass destruction to be found in Iraq. Having given their Saddam Hussein enough time to move or bury (like he did with his fighter jets at main airport), they were no where to be found. That is until some surfaced under Assad´s (Syria) three-year civil war. Each batch of chemical weapons should have a specific "signature" as to where developed. Info NEVER shared with the American people as they now go to "neutralize" it and dump it in the Greenpeace´s "ocean."

6 more journalists arrested
in Ferguson protests
CNN, by Brian Stelter    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 8/19/2014 12:25:33 PM     Post Reply
Six journalists were taken into custody while covering the protests in Ferguson, Missouri, on Monday and early Tuesday, aggravating what one press freedom group has called a "concerted, top-down effort to restrict the fundamental First Amendment rights of the public and the press." The incidents bring the total number of journalists arrested during the mid-August protests to 11. Other journalists reported being threatened with arrest and affected by tear-gas on Monday night. Authorities tried to restrict members of the news media to a designated area away from the protests, sometimes nicknamed a "press pen."

Austin, TX - Republican Texas Gov. Rick Perry says he is fighting a criminal indictment with the law on his side — not to mention a team of high-powered attorneys with formidable records in big cases. His lead attorney took on BP after the Deepwater Horizon explosion in the Gulf of Mexico. Another argued before the U.S. Supreme Court and won changes to campaign finance laws. Joining them is George W. Bush’s former lawyer during the Florida recount that decided the 2000 presidential election. That doesn’t even include the Austin attorney who’s been paid at least $80,000 in taxpayer money since a grand jury

Obamacare fading as top GOP
ad issue in key Senate races: report
Washington Times, by David Sherfinski    Original Article

Republicans in competitive Senate races across the country are backing off their reliance on Obamacare as their top weapon against Democrats on the airwaves, with a leading GOP pollster saying the health care overhaul isn’t going to be the most important issue for the fall midterms. In April, for example, anti-Obamacare ads accounted for 54 percent of the top five issue ads in North Carolina, where incumbent Democratic Sen. Kay Hagan is locked in a tough race with Republican Thom Tillis, according to Kantar Media. But in July, Bloomberg reported, anti-Obamacare ads accounted for just 27 percent of the top issue ads,

The retail industry is reeling from the latest security breach disclosed last week at the nation´s third-largest grocery store. (Snip) A term that was barely known in the United States nine months is becoming common now: EMV chip cards. EMV stands for Europay, MasterCard and Visa, which collaborated to adopt the cards two decades ago. Chip cards -- and the point-of-sale terminals to read them -- are the norm in Europe, Asia and Africa and have led to huge declines in card fraud. Chip cards help curtail fraud because: 1. The information you need for an in-person purchase is stored in the chip and can't be stolen and duplicated.

Logar, Afghanistan - As many as 700 heavily armed Taliban insurgents are battling Afghan security forces in Logar, a key province near the capital Kabul, local officials said on Tuesday, in a test of the Afghan military´s strength as foreign forces pull out of the country. (Snip) The Taliban have dug-in in Logar, which lies about an hour´s drive south of Kabul, and nearby Wardak province to the west, in recent years. They have used the provinces - gateways to the capital - as launchpads for hit-and-run attacks and suicide bombings on Kabul.

Israeli has launched its first air strikes on the Gaza Strip in five days in response to rockets fired from the enclave into Israel, just hours before a truce between the sides was set to expire, officials said. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ordered the military to attack "terror sites" in the Gaza Strip after Israeli military reported three rockets fired from Gaza had struck open ground near the Israeli city of Beersheba. Israel has also ordered its negotiators back from Cairo, where talks aimed at establishing a peace agreement had been ongoing.

Only Rich Know Wage Gains

Call it the no-raises recovery: Five years of economic expansion have done almost nothing to boost paychecks for typical American workers while the rich have gotten richer. Meager improvements since 2009 have barely kept up with a similarly tepid pace of inflation, raising the real value of compensation per hour by only 0.5 percent. That marks the weakest growth since World War II, with increases averaging 9.2 percent at a similar point in past expansions, according to Bureau of Labor Statistics data compiled by Bloomberg. Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen has zeroed in on faster wage growth as an important milestone for declaring

Returning to the Vatican from a historic five-day visit to South Korea, Pope Francis on Monday said the international community should “stop” the Islamic State group’s attacks on religious minorities in Iraq. Francis also said he would like to visit the war-torn region if it would help end the violence against Christians and other minorities. Reporters traveling on the papal plane asked Francis if he approves of unilateral U.S. airstrikes on Islamic State-held areas where militants have killed, beheaded and forced the conversion of Iraqi Christians and others. “In these cases, where there is an unjust aggression, I can only say that it is licit to stop the

Vatican City - The Vatican says a road accident in Argentina has killed two young great-nephews of Pope Francis as well as their mother, the wife of the pope’s nephew. Vatican spokesman the Rev. Federico Lombardi said the accident occurred Tuesday morning in the area of Cordoba, a major Argentine city. One nephew was 2, the other was 8 months. The age of their mother wasn’t immediately available. Lombardi said the nephew survived; local news reports said he was injured. Lombardi didn’t have the victims’ names. Lombardi said “the pope was informed about the tragic accident. He is deeply pained.”

Cairo - Unidentified warplanes on Monday bombed a small arms depot and other locations in the Libyan capital, Tripoli, that are controlled by Islamist-aligned militias, suggesting that a foreign state had intervened in the escalating battle for control of the city. At least six people were killed, The Associated Press reported. The origin of the planes remained a mystery. (Snip) The airstrikes were beyond the capacity of the limited Libyan Air Force, and Libyan authorities said the planes had come from a foreign state.

An autopsy conducted on Michael Brown, the unarmed 18-year-old fatally shot by Ferguson, Missouri, police officer Darren Wilson last Saturday, shows that Brown was shot at least six times, twice in the head and all in the front of the body. The New York Times reported the results of a private autopsy conducted by Dr. Michael Baden, who was hired by the Brown family. Baden conducted the autopsy on Sunday, according to the Times. One bullet entered the top of Brown’s skull. Four struck him in the right arm. All bullets hit Brown in the front of the body, according to

Violence continues in Ferguson, Missouri. It began on August 9 with the death of Michael Brown, an unarmed African-American teenager cut down by a white cop’s bullets. Peaceful demonstrations turned into looting, the local police went in with rubber bullets and tear gas, all hell broke loose and, eventually, Missouri’s governor pulled out the local police and sent in state officers instead. But the rioting only paused; it didn’t cease. [Snip] Observers might ask, “How can this be happening in an America that has elected a black president?” How can black kids still get killed by white cops and how

According to a preliminary report from a St. Louis Post-Dispatch reporter, police say that more than a dozen witnesses back Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson’s version of the events that led to the fatal shooting of Michael Brown. Post-Dispatch reporter Christine Byers sent a tweet late Monday teasing her findings.(Snip for tweet)Wilson’s claims match a woman who called herself “Josie” who called into Dana Loesch’s radio show on Friday. CNN confirmed with police officials that Josie’s and Wilson’s versions match.

President Barack Obama is getting off the island. In a rare move for him, the president planned a break in the middle of his Martha´s Vineyard vacation to return to Washington on Sunday night for meetings with Vice President Joe Biden and other advisers on the U.S. military campaign in Iraq and tensions between police and protesters in Ferguson, Missouri. The White House has been cagey about why the president needs to be back in Washington for those discussions. He´s received multiple briefings on both issues while on vacation.

While Barack Obama may have his own personal feelings towards the death of Michael Brown and the deterioration of order in Ferguson, Mo., he took pains during his press conference today to stress that he is, first and foremost, the President of the United States, and that the investigation in Brown’s death is still in progress. “I have to be very careful about not prejudging events before these investigations are completed, because these are issues of local jurisdiction,” he said during a Q&A during a press conference, in which he announced that he was sending Attorney General Eric Holder to

Historians will have the rest of the century to unravel the mess that is the Barack Obama presidency. While they can explore these years of foreign policy disaster and domestic malaise at leisure, the rest of us have 29 more months to see just how awful things can get before he slides off to a lucrative retirement. But those who want to start the post-mortem on this historic presidency would do well to read Jackson Diehl’s most recent Washington Post column in which he identifies Obama’s hubris as the key element in his undoing.

McDonald’s has a problem. For the first time in 10 years, the company generated less revenue in a month than it did a year before, and it’s not a blip. The world’s biggest burger chain has been posting lagging results for some time, particularly in the United States. Blake Casper says he has a very good idea why. “Companies like Chipotle are doing a great job talking to people about healthy food, and they’re changing the dynamic of how people eat,” said Casper, who owns Tampa Bay’s largest McDonald’s franchise group with his sister Allison Casper Adams. “We embrace that

FERGUSON, Missouri — It was a little after 9 p.m., and I was in the McDonald’s parking lot, standing by my car. A police helicopter circled overhead, its spotlight sweeping back and forth.Then I heard the sound of shattering glass: A rubber bullet had been fired through a window of McDonald’s, which until then, had been one of the few sanctuaries on West Florissant Avenue. Now I didn’t feel safe anywhere.

Initial media profiles noted that family and friends described "Big Mike" as not "the type to fight" and "funny, silly, he would make you laugh."
