Kerry-brokered plan to end Afghanistan
election crisis has stalled

Washington Post, by Erin Cunningham

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?

Obama’s vision of a post-racial America

Washington Post, by Chris Cillizza    Original Article

The speech that made Barack Obama famous cast him as a post-racial figure offering a vision of America no longer divided along black-and-white lines. “I stand here today grateful for the diversity of my heritage, aware that my parents’ dreams live on in my two precious daughters,” Obama, then an Illinois state senator, said in his keynote address at the 2004 Democratic National Convention. “I stand here knowing that my story is part of the larger American story, that I owe a debt to all of those who came before me and that in no other country on Earth is

The North Korean government is extremely busy – what with continually rattling sabres, battling extended famines, holding off imminent social collapse, and trying to convince everyone that North Korea is destined to rule the planet.

It may be the most cold-hearted case of the knockout game yet. A 33-year-old punk punched a pregnant woman in the face so hard that she lost consciousness. But the creep was quickly arrested, just blocks away, cops said Friday. Jannatul Ferdous — two months from her due date — told the Daily News she was horrified for her unborn child. “I was scared and worried about the baby,” the 34-year-old victim said at her home in Brooklyn. The suspect, Willie Stephens, doled out the unprovoked smack at 3:45 p.m. Thursday, as Ferdous strolled down Monroe St. near Ralph Ave.

FERGUSON, MO – It’s now been one week since the shooting of Michael Brown by Ferguson police officer in the Canfield Green apartment complex. In that time precious little has been said about the investigation into 18-year-old Michael Brown’s death. St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Bob McCulloch is on record says that his office is reviewing all relevant information, evidence and witnesses to the shooting. But that has done little to calm the residents of Ferguson who again demanded information on the status of the investigation from Governor Jay Nixon as spoke at a press conference Saturday afternoon.

ANCHORAGE — A polar bear surprised a mother and daughter in a tent on Alaska´s Barter Island, and biologists say such encounters likely will increase with the ongoing loss of sea ice from climate warming. Marie Rexford, 51, and her 81-year-old mother, Betty Brower, were at a fish camp outside the Inupiat village of Kaktovik, the Alaska Dispatch News reported Tuesday. Rexford was pulling on her socks last week when she looked over her shoulder and saw the outline of a paw pressed against the canvas tent. The paw belonged to a polar bear that was trying to push inside,

Concerned that children will be exposed to health risks and protesters, a Lehighton youth soccer team has dropped out of a tournament hosted by KidsPeace this weekend. The Carbon United Soccer Club played in the KidsPeace Soccer Invitational for the last eight years but the U10 team, the Outkasts, backed out this year. Parents and coaches felt uneasy with recent revelations that the nonprofit organization houses children who entered this country illegally, many of whom are Central American. For more than a year, KidsPeace has sheltered children in coordination with the U.S. Office of Refugee Resettlement. About 80 protesters held a rally

Kim Jong-un runs one of the world’s most secretive societies - so secret that despite it covering 47,000 sq miles, you can’t even see it from space. This is the extraordinary image of North Korea almost completely in the dark, apart from a small amount of light coming from its capital city Pyongyang. Lights can clearly be seen in its surrounding countries of Russia, China and South Korea - where the capital Seoul just 35 miles from the border.

Hillary Clinton is slipping against her potential Republican rivals in the 2016 presidential race, according to a new McClatchy-Marist poll released Thursday afternoon. Clinton, the Democratic front-runner in the still far-away contest, leads her opponents by noticeably smaller margins than she held in April, when the poll was last conducted. Against New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R), for example, the McClatchy-Marist poll found Clinton dropped 5% since April and 15% since February. She now leads Christie by just 47% to 41%. The story is the same for former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R). In April, Clinton led Bush by a

The Pentagon might not have boots on the ground in Ferguson, Mo., where 18-year-old Michael Brown was shot by police on Saturday, but it does have wheels on the street. Michelle McCaskill, media relations chief at the Defense Logistics Agency, confirms that the Ferguson Police Department is part of a federal program called 1033 that distributes hundreds of millions of dollars of surplus military equipment to civilian police forces across the United States. The materials range from small items such as pistols and automatic rifles to heavy armored vehicles such as the MRAPs used in Afghanistan and Iraq. "In 2013 alone, $449,309,003.71

During her book tour, the question was whether Hillary “We Were Dead Broke” Clinton had become disconnected from ordinary Americans. Now the question is whether she is disconnected from all principles, not to mention the details of her own biography. The running gag with Clinton used to be about her ever-changing hairstyles. Those are nothing compared with the bobs and weaves she has undertaken since her presidential-killing vote to authorize war in Iraq. Let’s see if we can trace things from the start of Clinton’s war

INDIANAPOLIS - A federal judge has ruled Indiana and nearly 40 state school districts can sue the Internal Revenue Service over rules it imposed to implement the federal health care overhaul. The judge on Tuesday declined an IRS request to dismiss the 2013 lawsuit by 39 districts. The lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in Indianapolis contends the federal health care law doesn’t allow financial penalties in states that didn’t create their own online insurance marketplaces. Such states instead ceded that task to the federal government. The lawsuit asks the federal court to issue an injunction blocking the IRS

One of the nation’s best radio talk show hosts, Hugh Hewitt, interviewed Joe Scarborough, the host of one of the best political shows on television. According to Mr. Scarborough This is a president that does go out of his way to show that he’s not paying attention to what anybody says. He’s going to do exactly what he wants to do, and he’s going to be stubborn about it. He is politically, he is either politically tone deaf or he just doesn’t give a damn.

They say a prosecutor could get a grand jury to indict a ham sandwich, and this always seemed like hyperbole, until Friday night a Texas grand jury announced an indictment of governor Rick Perry. The “crime” for which Perry faces a sentence of 5 to 99 years in prison is vetoing funding for a state agency. The conventions of reporting — which treat the fact of an indictment as the primary news, and its merit as a secondary analytic question — make it difficult for people reading the news to grasp just how farfetched this indictment is.

The Obama administration has done little to calm racial tensions as they spread from Manhattan to St. Louis to Los Angeles. Quite the opposite, some top officials have fueled African-American fears of racism with false accusations of anti-black discrimination. Attorney General Eric Holder’s race-baiting is no secret. Justice Department documents show the nation’s top cop gave thousands of dollars to help the Rev. Al Sharpton organize marches protesting the death of Trayvon Martin. Now he’s sent the civil-rights unit to St. Louis to do the same thing in the fatal shooting of Michael Brown. Less known, however, is the role of Labor Secretary Thomas

One person was shot and seven people arrested early this morning as police used smoke and tear gas to impose a curfew following the killing of an unarmed black teenager. Officers are seeking the person who shot the critically-wounded victim after the 12am-5am curfew took hold in Ferguson, Missouri - eight days after Michael Brown, 18, was shot dead by police. Police said their strong response came after people broke into a restaurant and took position on the roof overlooking officers, while another man flashed a handgun as armoured vehicles approached. Some 200 defiant protesters remained on the streets of

A ?friend who is conservative and ?Jewish asks a question: “Given ?Obama’s hostile treatment of ?Israel, isn’t it time for Jews to have their Ronald Reagan moment?” By that, he means when the Gipper said, “I didn’t leave the Democratic Party. The party left me.” Without doubt, the party under Barack Obama has left those Jews who view Israel’s security as threatened. Obama recently told a New York Times interviewer, “Because Israel is so capable militarily, I don’t worry about Israel’s survival.” That’s shocking, considering Iran’s threat to wipe Israel off the map once it gets nukes.

The scandal that erupted Friday night involved millions of dollars, statehouse power plays—oh yeah, and alcohol, police, and masks. Texas Governor Rick Perry was indicted Friday on charges of abuse of power—a first degree felony—and coercion—a third degree felony. The charges stem from a 2013 scandal that has been quietly rumbling in the Lone Star State as Perry has been floated as a viable contender for the Republican nomination in 2016. This is a complex case, which might be why it has not made national headlines the way other recent, state-level scandals (like Bridgegate, in New Jersey) have. Below, I have outlined

Attorney General Eric Holder has ordered a federal autopsy on the body of Michael Brown. Department of Justice spokesman Brian Fallon said it will be performed at the request of Brown´s family in addition to the one conducted by the state. Fallon also said that the Department of Justice will still take into account the state-performed autopsy during its civil rights investigation of Brown´s murder. Last week, Holder announced the federal probe following protests and outrage over the murder of the unarmed black teenager in Ferguson, Missouri. Since the murder, the town has erupted into multiple police clashes. Despite a

A grand jury in Travis County, Texas, indicted Governor Rick Perry today. Why? For exercising his constitutional prerogative by threatening to veto, and then vetoing, an appropriation to support the public corruption unit in Travis County’s district attorney’s office. This followed the arrest of the county’s district attorney, Democratic Party activist Rosemary Lehmberg, for drunk driving, after she was found “with an open bottle of vodka in the front passenger seat of her car in a church parking lot in Austin.” Ms. Lehmberg served 45 days in jail.The Travis County district attorney’s office has long been a cesspool of corruption.

The U.S. Army band, “Pershing’s Own,” played softly as the funeral procession made its way down the long hill past the rows of simple white gravestones to bring General Greene to his final resting place. The graveside service began with a few words, followed by a 13-gun salute. The major general’s widow, Dr. Susan Myers, was seated in the front row. To her right

Was Michael Brown a "gentle giant," a cigar thief, or a gang member? The black teenager had no adult criminal record, according to the St. Louis County prosecutor. 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." (Snip) Michael Brown had struggled in school, but had graduated Aug. 1 from Normandy High School, and had been staying at his grandmother´s apartment in Ferguson this summer.

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
