Feds limit reporters on

Atlanta Journal-Constitution, by Jamie Dupree

Posted By:earlybird, 7/8/2014 8:58:54 AM

As members of Congress and reporters ask to visit federal facilities housing children who have been apprehended by the U.S. in recent months, federal officials are slapping limits on members of the news media who want a glimpse inside. For example, an email sent to news organizations by Jesus Garcia, a public affairs officer for the Administration for Children and Families, a division of the Department of Health and Human Services, sets out a number of restrictions on reporters if they want to visit "Unaccompanied Alien Children" being held at Fort Sill in Oklahoma. "The purpose of this 40-minute tour

There was a time the Press would have objected. But, most ´journalists´ are happy to have the Obama administration put a ring in their nose and lead them around on a chain like a prize truffle hog.

With all due respect, the "media" CAN´T and WON´T handle the Truth! They are all lapdogs now and work for pravda-like "news" organizations whose ONLY goal in life is to protect the current occupier and his minions no matter what the cost to the American people! I pray that November is not too late to save what is left of our freedoms. Hyperbole? Hardly.

They don´t want those kids telling the reporters why they came which is almost certainly not to escape gang violence where they lived (the official reason fed to reporters).

US expands air strikes to
Iraq Sunni Arab heartland
Agence France-Presse, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: earlybird- 9/7/2014 7:27:20 AM     Post Reply
Washington said on Sunday it had carried out air strikes against jihadists in Iraq´s Sunni Arab heartland, expanding its month-long air campaign and its involvement in the conflict. It was a significant escalation for President Barack Obama, who made his political career opposing the war in Iraq and pulled out US troops in 2011. Previous strikes since Obama launched the US air campaign on August 8 had been mainly in support of Kurdish forces in the north. US warplanes bombed Islamic State (IS) jihadists around a strategic dam on the Euphrates River in an area that the jihadists have repeatedly tried to capture

A 14-year-old girl is facing arson and attempted murder charges after setting her family’s Florida house on fire in what authorities say was an senseless act of violence fueled in part by the teen’s obsession with the fictional horror figure Slender Man. Authorities in Pasco County say the girl torched the Port Richey home she shared with her mother and 9-year-old brother early Thursday. They say she soaked a towel and a bed sheet with bleach and rum and set it on fire in the garage. The mom and the boy were sleeping at the time. They fled the burning house

At least 53 people died Saturday in airstrikes by the Bashar al-Assad regime against several targets in the northern city of al-Raqa, a stronghold in Syria of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, or ISIL, according to the Syrian Human Rights Observatory. At least 33 of the victims - 24 civilians and nine ISIL combatants - lost their lives in the bombing of a bakery in the city, the capital of the like-named province, the NGO said. A similar attack was carried out against a training center of the extremist organization in the same town, where at least six ISIL

Al-Shabab also stated that it remains aligned with al-Qaeda, according to the Site Intelligence Group, which monitors statements by Islamist militant groups.

Scottish independence: ´Yes´ vote
takes shock lead in poll for first time
Independent [UK], by Richard Osley    Original Article
Posted By: earlybird- 9/6/2014 8:40:09 PM     Post Reply
The "Yes" campaign fighting for Scottish independence took a shock lead in the polls last night just 11 days before the country´s referendum.A fresh YouGov poll, when excluding undecided voters, placed the Scottish National Party-backed campaign for independence in a 51-49 point lead – the first time it has polled ahead. Earlier in the campaign, unionists enjoyed a double-digit lead, an advantage which has quickly vanished in the past fortnight. Supporters among the Yes camp were caught between celebrating the result of the poll, commissioned by The Sunday Times, and messages to colleagues to keep their feet on the ground, amid the

Joan Rivers: How a minor elective

Comedian Joan Rivers lost her life after having an apparently minor elective procedure at a Manhattan medical clinic last week. (Snip) He said sometimes patients will have these procedures so doctors can evaluate their vocal cords. Endoscopy is normally done under general anesthetic. Operating on the vocal cords is trickier, because a tube that would normally help someone breathe during such a procedure couldn’t go across the vocal cords. To tolerate that kind of evaluation, Zivot said, someone would need to be in a deep unconscious state. The center has not released the specifics about the kind of procedure Rivers

A respiratory virus is sending hundreds of children to Missouri hospitals and possibly throughout the Midwest, officials say. The virus causes symptoms like a cold, except worse, and is prompting up to 30 children a day to seek care at one Kansas City hospital, where about 15% of the youngsters were placed in intensive care, officials said. In a sign of a possible regional outbreak, Colorado, Illinois and Ohio are reporting cases with symptoms similar to the same virus and are awaiting testing results, according to officials and CNN affiliates in those states. In Kansas City, about 450 children were recently treated at

Two months before Californians go to the polls to choose a governor, the state´s top elections official tearfully acknowledged Friday that she has been consumed by a "debilitating" depression that has often kept her away from the office.

Immigrant-rights groups reacted furiously Saturday after the White House made clear President Obama will not take unilateral action on immigration before November’s elections, nodding at the political realities of the issue as he punted on the key policy questions. With a number of key Senate races in GOP-leaning states, Democrats had feared that action now would anger voters and cost them control of the upper chamber, and had privately begged the White House to hold off on any move to halt deportations. But immigration activists said it’s the latest in a series of moves by Mr. Obama to shove their

That’s been obvious to many of us for months, but despite the naming of a select committee by the U.S. House of Representatives to investigate what could have happened, what should have happened,
