Gitmo detainees seek religious
freedoms, cite Hobby Lobby ruling

Washington Times, by Jennifer Pompi

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 7/6/2014 10:36:38 PM

Lawyers for Guantanamo Bay detainees have filed motions asking U.S. courts to stop officials from barring the inmates from participating in communal prayers during Ramadan, claiming their rights are protected under the Religious Freedom Restoration Act and citing the recent Supreme Court Hobby Lobby ruling in their defense, reports Al Jazeera America. U.K.-based human rights group Reprieve filed the motions on behalf of Emad Hassan of Yemen and Ahmed Rabbani of Pakistan, whom the group says requested the intervention after Guantanamo Bay military officials, “prevented them from praying communally during

Comments:
Ask this murderers if they "believe" that man has the right to "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness?" if they want to take one constitutional guarantee, they must get all, like as terrorist (enemy combatants), they have no standing in our courts or to be on our soil.

Ok,
when they have created a business,
and have employees,
then as per the Supreme Court Hobby Lobby ruling,
they will not be forced
to provide abortions
for their employees.

Which is completely different from
requiring conspiracy meetings.

No doubt these pseudo lawyers are all from Baghdad Holder´s old law firm. Nothing like keeping his lawyer buddies fully employed during the job real Americans refuse to do.

Just imagine the legal circus that they could cause if they were held in the US, with the full range of legal options, instead of Gitmo.

Unfortunately we do not have to imagine this, as that is the preferred policy of this administration.

Obama scraps Jimmy Kimmel
visit amid "more serious matters"
CBS News, by Rebecca Kaplan    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 7/22/2014 3:29:33 PM     Post Reply
As crises continue erupting all over the world, presidential fundraising trips still make the cut. Late-night television appearances, on the other hand, do not. White House spokesman Josh Earnest confirmed Tuesday that tentative plans to appear on Jimmy Kimmel´s late night show during President Obama´s three-day trip to the West Coast were scrapped, at least in part because of how it would look. The decision "is at least in part related to the challenges of doing a comedy show in the midst of some of these other, more serious matters that the president´s dealing with in the international scene," Earnest told reporters. The president has taken

Washington - In a sign of just how much German-American relations have frayed, President Obama sent his chief of staff to Berlin to try to smooth over the rupture caused by recent revelations of American spying on its ally, the White House said Tuesday. Denis R. McDonough, the president’s chief of staff, met with his German counterpart in Berlin on Tuesday for what the White House called “intensive talks on the state of bilateral relations and future cooperation.” (Snip) Mr. McDonough, a longtime adviser to Mr. Obama, sometimes undertook overseas missions of this sort when he was deputy national security adviser,

‘Unaccompanied minors’ are only
one-fourth of illegal border-crossers

A Border Patrol report reveals that “unaccompanied minors” are only one-fourth of the current invasion from Central America across our Southwest border. The crossings by family units have increased almost five times faster. This contradicts White House and media efforts to elicit public sympathy by focusing public attention on children. Total other-than-Mexican (OTM) apprehensions were 202,951 in the Southwest Border Sector (with three-fourths of those in the Rio Grande Valley) from Oct.1 through June 30. Of those, 57,525 were “unaccompanied alien children.” The other 145,426 persons were among 55,420 “family units”

On July 22, 2013, the world watched as Prince George Alexander Louis made his grand debut alongside parents Prince William and Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton outside the steps of St. Mary’s Hospital. According to Express UK, the baby, who is third in line to the British throne behind his father and grandfather, Prince Charles, weighed a healthy 8 pounds, 6 ounces, and arrived at 4:24 p.m. on that fateful day. And since then, his royal highness has been charming fans across the globe. From his coveted style (just like mama), to his international tour of Australia and

Putin Misses Global Rally
as Micex Erases $28 Billion
Bloomberg News, by Boris Korby & Ye Xie *    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 7/22/2014 11:59:17 AM     Post Reply
President Vladimir Putin’s meddling in Ukraine cost Russia dearly in financial markets. With the downing of Malaysian Airlines Flight 17, the toll is only getting worse. The price to protect Russian bonds against default, already the highest among the world’s four largest emerging markets, has surged since the July 17 tragedy in eastern Ukraine. The Micex Index resumed its decline, putting the losses since Putin began his push into Crimea in late February at 4.2 percent through yesterday and wiping out about $28 billion in market value, even as stock gauges from the U.S. to India jumped to all-time highs. Russia’s market slump is exacerbating

The strange saga of now-dead

The fugitive and alleged owner of the South Korean ferry that sank in April and killed hundreds of children aboard was as mysterious in death as he was in life. The billionaire tycoon Yoo Byung-un founded the Web site God.com, led a church many considered a cult, was once jailed for fraud, but only recently became internationally known as the focus of the largest manhunt in South Korean history. Now that search, which once included 9,000 cops and was renewed on Monday, seems to have come to a close. South Korean police announced Tuesday morning they had determined that a previously discovered body, found on June 12,

In a stunning security breach, the giant American flags at the top of both sides of the Brooklyn Bridge were replaced by white-painted flags overnight, cops said Tuesday. Emergency Services cops lowered the two rogue flags — which are the traditional symbol for “surrender” — and packed them up along with what appeared to be painting supplies. The discovery was made sometime this morning. Police are trying to figure out how someone was able to gain access to the bridge, which has patrol cars stationed on both sides and also has security cameras.

Billionaire hedge fund manager Bill Ackman broadened his public assault Tuesday on diet shaker maker Herbalife, accusing it of defrauding members of its nutritional clubs. Ackman, head of hedge fund Pershing Square Capital Management, disclosed details of his latest investigation into more than 240 Herbalife clubs during a webcast at the AXA Equitable Center in New York. He said that the company, in a "pyramid scheme", is targeting Latinos and other lower-income socioeconomic groups.

The NAACP Legal Defense Fund has filed a class action lawsuit against the city of Detroit for water shutoffs that members claim are racially motivated. The Detroit Water and Sewerage Department stopped service to about 7,200 buildings with overdue bills in June, compared to 1,570 in the same month last year. The issue gained national attention last month after activists appealed to the United Nations for help. The shutoffs are “being done in a discriminatory fashion,” the NAACP’s Veronica Joice told a local CBS affiliate. “They should at least take a look at whether there’s a better way to do this that doesn’t affect the most vulnerable citizens

Federal appeals court invalidates some
ObamaCare subsidies, in blow to health law
Fox News, by Barnini Chakraborty    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 7/22/2014 10:55:31 AM     Post Reply
Washington - A powerful federal appeals court dealt a major blow to ObamaCare on Tuesday, ruling against the legality of some subsidies issued to people through the Affordable Care Act exchanges. A three-judge panel ruled 2-1 on Tuesday that the IRS went too far in reinterpreting the language in ObamaCare to extend subsidies to those who buy insurance through the federally run exchanges, known as HealthCare.gov. The case, Halbig v Sebelius, is one of the first major legal challenges that cuts to the heart of the Affordable Care Act by going after the legality of massive federal subsidies and those who benefit from them.

Gaza City - Hamas claimed it captured an Israeli soldier Sunday on the deadliest day yet in the battle between Israel and Hamas militants in Gaza. Ron Prosor, Israeli ambassador to the United Nations, denied the report. "There´s no kidnapped Israeli soldier, and those rumors are untrue," he said. According to Abu Obeida, a spokesman for Hamas´ military wing, al-Qassam Brigades, the soldier was taken during an early morning operation. He provided the supposed soldier´s name and ID. "He is a prisoner, and if Zionists lie about the dead and wounded, then the fate of this soldier is their responsibility," the spokesman said.

Some truths CNN reveals only accidentally. One such truth Anderson Cooper shared on the night of July 17. In speaking about the shoot down of Malaysian airliner MH 17 earlier that day, Cooper referred back to “July 17, 1996, when TWA Flight 800 was shot down off the coast of Long Island in New York.” (snip)wo days earlier, Cooper hosted a CNN special report on the subject, “Witnessed: The Crash of TWA Flight 800.” To understand the depth of media-government complicity, it is useful to compare “Witnessed” with two prior videos. One is the ironically titled, “No Survivors: Why TWA 800

Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy wasn’t out to make news when he addressed the annual conference of the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals and devoted most of his 50-minute speech to the Magna Carta, which turns 800 years old in 2015. But Kennedy did let on that he doesn’t belong to the school of Constitution-worshipers who base their legal doctrines on what they glean to be the original, literal meaning of every word and phrase in the nation’s founding document.

Convinced that their region has suffered as much Obama administration meddling as it can possibly stand, Israel and Egypt took the extraordinary step earlier this week of jointly rejecting requests by US Secretary of State John Kerry to involve himself in ceasefire talks with the terrorist group Hamas. Israeli and Egyptian diplomats both claim Egyptian efforts to mediate a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas collapsed as a direct result of Secretary Kerry’s announcement he was prepared to join the talks. He apparently made the announcement without first consulting either of the parties. The diplomats are convinced that their own

A pernicious, little-known Obama administration policy – one that that incentivizes adult illegal immigrants to use children as human shields to escape arrest and deportation at the border – largely has escaped the media’s notice. This same policy is driving the historic surge of children at the border, as everyone from coyotes to illegal immigrant adults already in America seeks to use children to guarantee their safe passage into the country, or to protect them from deportation if they are illegally living here. The flood of illegal immigrant children, piling up like human debris on the US border, won’t stop

WASHINGTON— President Barack Obama said Joe Biden would make a "superb" president, but questioned whether his vice president or potential rival Hillary Clinton would want to endure another campaign for the White House, a media report Monday said. Obama, in an interview with the New Yorker, said Biden "has seen the job up close, he knows what the job entails. He understands how to separate what´s really important from what´s less important. I think he´s got great people skills. He enjoys politics, and he´s got important relationships up on the Hill (in Congress) that would serve him well." "Joe would

WASHINGTON —Polarization and partisanship are a plague on American politics. Political scientists have found that the two parties have each grown more ideologically homogeneous since the 1970s. The Senate hasn’t been so polarized since Reconstruction; the House has not been so divided since around 1900. As measured by laws passed, the current Congress is on track to be among the least productive in our republic’s history. How did this happen? One of the main causes has not gotten enough attention: the party primary system. The reasons behind the shocking primary defeat last month of Representative Eric Cantor of Virginia, who
