Conservative group hits Christie on
judicial picks, ahead of Iowa visit

Washington Times, by Seth McLaughlin

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 7/15/2014 8:28:47 AM

A conservative group is welcoming New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie to Iowa this week by accusing him of supporting “liberal” judges in the Garden State — as it looks to raise questions about whether conservatives can trust the Republican to ahead of a possible 2016 presidential run. The Judicial Crisis Network (JCN) said it was spending $75,000 on two online ads — one 15 seconds long and another 90 seconds — that say Mr. Christie has missed a number of chances to change the “liberal” makeup of the New Jersey Supreme Court and has worked with Democrats. “Over and over, Chris Christie said he would fix it, remake the court

Comments:
This is not being posted to "pile on" Christie, but to show what happens when you elect a high placed official who doesn´t keep an important campaign promise. One would expect the same behavior if Christie ran as GOP candidate for president. (He´s a RINO that needs to graze in New Jersey). Actions and voting records are a good indicator prior to pulling the lever.

The Judiciary in NJ is an absolute disgrace with few exceptions. It is time judges start get elected instead of appointed there.

It used to be said that NJ pols were owned by the mob. Chris is owned too, but by a different mob.

Donald Sterling´s petition denied
in latest legal tussle over Clippers
Los Angeles Times, by Nathan Fenno & Kim Christensen    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 8/9/2014 2:23:16 AM     Post Reply
An appeals court denied Donald Sterling´s petition late Friday to stay last month´s probate court ruling against him, the latest round of legal wrangling over the proposed $2-billion sale of the Clippers to Steve Ballmer. The ruling capped a confused and hectic 24 hours that left all parties back where they started. Sterling´s attorneys face a Wednesday deadline to file their objections to the probate court´s ruling and presumably take the case to the appeals court again. (Snip) The order would allow the sale of the franchise to proceed, regardless of an appeal by Donald Sterling. After Levanas signed the final statement of decision in the

Sacramento - Gov. Jerry Brown´s decision to deny freedom to a Manson family cult member who passed muster with a state parole board follows a familiar path. The governor on Friday reversed a parole board´s March decision that there would be no danger to the public in releasing Bruce Davis, convicted of two murders as well as conspiracy to commit murder. He was not directly involved in the Tate-LaBianca slayings that terrified Los Angeles residents in 1969. Brown, in his decision, noted the barbaric nature of the murders Davis took part in. "The exceptional brutality of these crimes and the terror the Manson family inflicted on the

The U.S. Marshals Service says Gerardo Francisco Mejia Coto was taken into custody this week. He´s being held by immigration authorities and faces deportation. Deputy U.S. Marshal Joseph Palmer said Friday that Coto is wanted in El Salvador on suspicion of murder and other crimes after bank robberies and armored car hijackings in which two people were killed.

Toronto - A public health official says a patient at a hospital near Toronto has been isolated as a precautionary measure after showing flu-like symptoms similar to those characteristic of the Ebola virus. Dr. Eileen de Villa with Peel Public Health says the steps are being taken because the patient at Brampton Civic Hospital recently travelled to Nigeria, which has been hit with an outbreak of the disease. She says the patient is showing a fever and other flu-like symptoms but cautioned there has been no diagnosis yet. She says the hospital has put heightened infection-control measures in place in addition to isolating the patient.

Boehner: Lack of Obama
strategy ‘emboldens’ ISIL

President Obama was right to strike at ISIS targets in Iraq, but he still needs to come up with a broader strategy for halting the insurgents’ advance, House Speaker John A. Boehner said Friday morning. In a statement issued soon after the first strikes were confirmed by the Pentagon, Mr. Boehner said the White House “emboldens the enemy and squanders the sacrifices Americans have made” by failing to develop a better Iraq policy. “Vital national interests are at stake, yet the White House has remained disengaged despite warnings from Iraqi leaders, Congress, and even members of its own administration,” Mr. Boehner said

Yahoo announced Thursday it will encrypt its email service by early next year, joining Google and Microsoft in an effort to create an email system that prevents government officials and hackers from reading users’ messages. (Snip) With Yahoo’s announcement, first reported by the Wall Street Journal, email encryption will protect nearly one billion email users. There are 110 million Yahoo email users and over 425 million unique users of Google’s Gmail service. Microsoft says there are over 400 million active Outlook.com and Hotmail accounts. Widespread email encryption of the kind Yahoo is announcing is a huge blow to government

Tea party losses cheer some Republicans,

Washington - When it comes to the fierce competition for control of the US Senate, one party’s whoops and cheers are the other party’s sighs and slumped shoulders. (Snip) Not so long ago, Democrats had seen the tea party as an opportunity to gain or buttress seats in an election year that favors Republicans, a year in which the GOP needs only six seats to retake the Senate. That hasn´t happened. As a result, Democrats are now in a weaker position to retain their majority in the Senate in November. More bad news for Democrats arrived Thursday, when Sen. John Walsh (D) of Montana announced he is pulling out of the race over

After a ring of Russian hackers obtained 1.2 billion user names and passwords this week, the Federal Trade Commission warned consumers to be vigilant with their online accounts, The Hill reported. In a blog post, Maneesha Mithal, leader of the agency’s privacy and identity protection division, urged users to update passwords for bank accounts, email addresses and other online accounts containing private information. “By taking theses steps, you can lessen the odds scammers will get a hold of your information, and also minimize the consequences if they do,” Ms. Mithal said.

New York Times best-selling author and long-time journalist Ed Klein said that Valerie Jarrett has been engaging in secret meetings with Sen. Elizabeth Warren in recent months, giving rise to speculations that the Massachusetts political newcomer is actually the administration’s choice to head the White House in 2016. “President Obama has authorized Valerie Jarrett, his most important political adviser, to hold secret meetings with Elizabeth Warren to encourage her to challenge Hillary Clinton because the Obamas do not want to see the Clintons succeed them in the White House,” Mr. Klein said during a broadcast interview on “America’s Forum”

NATO chief warns

NATO chief Anders Fogh Rasmussen urged Russia to “step back from the brink” during a visit to Kiev yesterday and vowed support for Ukraine as fears mounted that Moscow was preparing to send troops into the conflict-torn east of the country. His visit came as the centre of the main rebel bastion, Donetsk, was hit by sustained bombardment for the first time in four months of fighting, and 12 civilians were killed around the region. A Ukrainian fighter jet was reportedly shot down as it flew low over rebel-held territory. The plane crashed after a midair explosion and the pilot was seen parachuting out.

Iraq Strikes Seen as Giving

Washington - The president orders his military into action in a war-torn country to protect a vulnerable population, authorizing strikes in service of a humanitarian mission. That was President Obama on Thursday. But it could be President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia in the not-too-distant future. Never mind the deep differences between the wars consuming Iraq and Ukraine. If Mr. Putin ultimately decides to send Russian armed forces across the border, analysts say he now has one more pretext. Just as Mr. Obama says he is trying to protect Yazidis and Kurds threatened by Sunni Muslim extremists, Mr. Putin may argue he wants to

The Department of Justice does not have receipts for more than half of the unaccompanied alien children apprehended at the southwest border by Border Patrol since the start of Fiscal Year 2013, government records show.

EOIR has recorded 20,814 receipts marked as juvenile in fiscal year 2014 as of June 30, but Border Patrol recorded 57,525 apprehensions of unaccompanied alien children during the

President Obama, who ran for office on a platform of ending U.S. military hostilities in Iraq, said Thursday night that he had authorized ´targeted airstrikes if necessary´ in an effort to protect the delivery of humanitarian aid to threatened Iraqis, and to ensure the safety of US personnel delivering the assistance. ´We do whatever is necessary to protect our people. We support our allies when they´re in danger,´ Obama said in an 8-minute speech delivered from the White House´s State Dining Room But American combat troops will not be returning to fight in Iraq, he insisted, and the U.S. won´t

Democratic Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis on Thursday questioned the deployment of 1,000 National Guard troops on the border with Mexico to curtail illegal immigration and she promised, if elected, that she will study withdrawing them. The troop contingent was promised a month ago by current Republican Gov. Rick Perry, and it is expected that in the coming days they will begin to be deployed along the Texas-Mexico border, which stretches some 2,000 kilometers (about 1,240 miles).

The disgraceful video above shows how racist Russian students projected a laser image of Barack Obama eating a banana on to the US Embassy in Moscow. On 4th August, the so-called show began with a message to the US President pretending to wish him a happy 53rd birthday. A likeness of Obama with a party hat on his head then appeared, although the mouth area was made to look like that of a monkey - and a banana repeatedly moved into the mouth. The series of projections are then repeated several times. A group calling itself The Moscow Student Initiative

The GOP has shown time and again that it is incapable of passing any meaningful immigration reform. But give them tens of thousands of Central American children fleeing violence, and they fly into action. Turns out, what animates today´s Republicans is deporting kids. So inspired were they, the GOP-controlled House of Representatives stayed late Friday to distort and demagogue a humanitarian crisis, passing a reprehensible bill that the Republicans claim addresses the border crisis. Kevin Appleby, director of the Office of Migration Policy at the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, told me, "This bill guts any real due process for

This week, ProPublica released a report on the financial (and moral) corruption of a Tea Party group operating under the name Move America Forward, which was founded by one Sal Russo. Russo also helped start the Our Country Deserves Better PAC, aka the Tea Party Express. Move America Forward has run fake drives to give care packages to troops, stolen images of other charitable campaigns and passed them off as its own, and trumpeted a nonexistent partnership with Walter Reed Hospital — all while funneling very real millions to itself.

An elementary school in the outer suburbs of Atlanta has outlawed birthday cupcakes, cookies and, in fact, all food from birthday parties over fears that some kids with food allergies could feel sad and left out. Officials at Brooks Elementary School in Newnan, Ga. announced the draconian new policy for the upcoming school year via a letter to parents, reports The Newnan Times-Herald. “When parents have brought in goodies for birthdays, oftentimes these children are not included in the snack because of dietary restrictions and have felt left out,” Julie Raschen, principal of Brooks Elementary, said, according to the Times-Herald.

The death of James Brady -- President Ronald Reagan´s press secretary who was wounded in the attempt on Reagan´s life in March 1981 -- was a homicide, the medical examiner for the Northern District of Virginia ruled Friday.

Willingboro — A recreation and senior citizens center in Willingboro known as the "Kennedy Center" will soon be named after the sitting president and not a former one. The change became official Tuesday when the township council voted to change the name of the building to honor President Barack Obama, according to a report on BurlingtonCountyTimes.com. The change is not meant as a slight to former President John F. Kennedy, councilman Chris Walker told the website.

President Obama said Thursday night that he has authorized two new, major actions by the U.S. military in Iraq: airstrikes against militants with the Islamic State if U.S. interests or personnel are threatened, and humanitarian assistance for thousands of civilians who have fled the Islamist advance in northwest Iraq and are now trapped on a mountain. Even those two specific missions are more complicated than that, however. First, the U.S. humanitarian mission on Mount Sinjar began Thursday with airdrops by military aircraft, but it could require targeted airstrikes in order to “break the siege” at the base of the mountain and
