Kerry-brokered plan to end Afghanistan
election crisis has stalled

Washington Post, by Erin Cunningham

Original Article

Posted By:Scottyboy, 7/15/2014 9:43:55 AM

KABUL – Just days after Secretary of State John F. Kerry arrived in Kabul to broker an end to Afghanistan’s elections impasse — a weeks-long crisis that had threatened to split the country — disagreements among the two rival presidential candidates over how to proceed are already threatening to collapse the historic deal. Confusion over whether Afghan or international institutions will lead the inspection of 8.1 million votes cast in a June 14 runoff that was marred by widespread fraud has stalled the implementation of the Kerry-sponsored agreement and contributed to a renewed atmosphere of distrust between the two sides. The White

I´d actually respect this man more if he just flew around the world, got drunk and did photo-ops for four years like Hillary did. . . . . . and the scary thing is that I think he actually was entertaining thoughts of making another run for the White House based on his record as Sec. of State.

No problemo, he can just pop over to Iran, Iraq, Syria, and Israel, maybe throw in Libya and Ukraine if he has some time, and get them sorted out.

He speaks French and has gravitas, and served in Viet Nam donchaknow.

Kerry lives in his own self-aggrandizing world where he is completely detached from reality and how totally useless he is. However, he is successful at marrying very wealthy women.

Took just days for Kerry to fail and make the situation worse. I´m more inclined to believe he was a failure before he was even born.

How "historic" of a deal can it be if it falls apart within days?

Holder expects criminal charges
against individuals on Wall Street
Associated Press, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: Scottyboy- 9/17/2014 11:14:14 PM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON — The Justice Department expects to bring criminal charges in the coming months in investigations involving financial institutions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Wednesday as he called for better incentives for Wall Street whistleblowers who report crime. Holder did not describe the investigations in a speech at New York University’s law school except to say that they’re “focused on the conduct of individuals” and involve wrongdoing that has undermined the financial markets. He used the address to urge Congress to raise a cap on the amount of money that a whistleblower can receive for reporting misconduct. Such cooperation is essential since

The Australian Federal Police and Australian Security and Intelligence Office conducted several anti-terrorism raids in Sydney and Brisbane. According to reports, about 600 officers with armoured vehicles arrested several people in separate pre-dawn raids in NSW and Brisbane. The recent raids are said to be the largest in Australian history following the report of senior officers who revealed a planned terrorist attack was imminent. Intelligence reports said a suspected terrorist cell is planning a kidnapping and beheading. The act of murder will be recorded and posted on social media for the public to see.

A Milwaukee teen charged in a string of armed robberies last week told police he was trying to do as many crimes as he could before he turned 18 on Sept. 11. Rocarldo Chalmers is one of five suspects charged Wednesday in a dizzying spree of armed stick-ups and car jackings that only ended after a high speed chase. Chalmers faces 10 felonies, including armed robbery, car theft and fleeing. Isiah Deshawn Thomas, 18, is charged with five counts, Anthony Griffis, 17, with two. Two juveniles were also arrested and as many as three other suspects remain at large. According to the complaint: Things

Ready for Hillary? Not so fast. Zephyr Teachout, fresh off her strong second-place showing in the Democratic primary against New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, pleaded for more Democratic candidates to challenge the presumed 2016 frontrunner. “Please, we need people to run against Hillary Clinton because if she’s not debating anyone on education policy or on tax policy then we all lose,” she told MSNBC’s Krystal Ball on Wednesday. “Not only does she need a challenger from the left, we should have 5 people—10 people—running for president,” she argued. “If we don’t have a Democratic Party challenger, that is a democratic tragedy.”

First Lady Michelle Obama is proving herself a very dear friend to the fashion world. Obama, a master of both high and low sartorial styles, will be hosting a Fashion Education Workshop at the White House next month. According to an email obtained by Women´s Wear Daily, celebrated designers like Prabal Gurung, Reed Krakoff, Maria Cornejo, and Bibhu Mohapatra have been invited to attend "to bring members of the fashion industry to the White House and enlighten, educate and mentor the next generation of fashion leaders." In addition, college students from around the Washington area will attend the Oct. 8 educational workshop, which

Executive: Obamacare Is Shifting
Workers Into Part-Time Jobs
Forbes Magazine, by Andrew Puzder    Original Article
Posted By: Scottyboy- 9/17/2014 5:12:52 PM     Post Reply
Given the massive effort behind convincing us that Obamacare is a resounding success, it’s almost surprising that a recent NBC News/Wall Street Journal Poll found support languishing at 34%. Part of the problem is the credibility Obamacare supporters lose by attempting to prove two questionable propositions. First, that Obamacare is having a positive impact on our health care system and, second, that it’s doing so without any negative impact on our economy. For example, a recent report by the Urban Institute and Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, both Obamacare supporters, found “little evidence” that Obamacare’s employer mandate is affecting part time employment.

Yesterday, former Vice President Al Gore presented his fourth annual ‘24 Hours of Reality.’ Broadcast to millions of people, the event is “dedicated to sparking action on climate change.” As with most Gore productions, only carefully pre-screened questions are allowed from journalists. Considering what’s at stake—billions of dollars, millions of jobs, and, if Gore is right, the fate of the global environment—that is not good enough. Reporters must be encouraged to ask any questions they like. Several leading climate experts were asked what question they would most like media to ask Gore in a public forum. Here are 10 of their responses: William

SEOUL -- A young American man has been caught trying to swim across a river border into North Korea, a government source said Wednesday.

The injustice of Eric Holder

Even we were shocked when we researched our new book, “Obama’s Enforcer: Eric Holder’s Justice Department,” at the extent to which Attorney General Eric Holder Jr. has politicized the Justice Department and put the interests of left-wing ideology and his political party ahead of the fair and impartial administration of justice. However, there is no doubt that the American public has also recognized just how politically corrupt Mr. Holder is, given this month’s very embarrassing poll conducted by Hart Research for NBC News and The Wall Street Journal. The poll asked respondents their opinions about 10 different national political officials, ranging

A handful of protesters crashed a speech Hillary Clinton delivered at a labor union’s headquarters in Manhattan tonight, attacking the former first lady for supporting the president’s decision to delay an executive action on immigration reform. “Undocumented, unafraid! Undocumented, unafraid!” the protesters, a group of several women and children, cried as Ms. Clinton was finishing a speech in support of the reauthorization of the Zadroga Act, a law that granted medical compensation and health care to survivors of the September 11 attacks. “Hillary Clinton hasn’t come out in support of our families,” said Mateo Taveras, a 19 year-old native of Colombia living

Minnesota´s ObamaCare exchange stands apart from every other state — and not only because its No. 1 insurer just threw in the towel. Tuesday´s stunning news that PreferredOne, which enrolled 59% of the state´s exchange members, won´t offer subsidized ObamaCare policies in 2015 is likely related to another unique feature of the exchange that has stunted its growth potential. In 2015, well more than half of MNsure exchange subsidies won´t go to insurers on the exchange, but to a public program serving households that fall between the cut-off for Medicaid and 200% of the poverty level. To date, this MinnesotaCare program for households

Flashes of disagreement over how to fight the Islamic State are mounting between President Obama and U.S. military leaders, the latest sign of strain in what often has been an awkward and uneasy relationship. Even as the administration has received congressional backing for its strategy, with the Senate voting Thursday to approve a plan to arm and train Syrian rebels, a series of military leaders have criticized the president’s approach against the Islamic State militant group. Retired Marine Gen. James Mattis, who served under Obama until last year, became the latest high-profile skeptic on Thursday, telling the House Intelligence Committee

A village of just 1,000 residents in Switzerland has been forced to raise taxes because an African refugee and her seven children cost the local authority £40,000 in benefits every month. Hagenbuch, in the Swiss canton of Zurich, is understood to be spending close to a third of its total annual budget on the family after they arrived from Eritrea in East Africa three years ago.

Devastating. That´s really the only way to describe Politico´s piece on DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz. (I hereby nominate her for Worst Week in Washington.) (Editor´s note: Three words -- Joseph. Robinette. Biden.) Based on interviews with DNC staffers -- both former and current -- the piece described Wasserman Schultz as something of a modern-day Tracy Flick: over-eager, disloyal and not shy about promoting her ambitions. It would be fair to say that she sounds like, well, a lot like other politicians. And this would be accurate. But the wholesale bashing of Wasserman Schultz at every level of the party -- White House,
