GOP Senate candidate inches ahead
in Colorado as Obama approval tumbles

McClatchy News, by David Lightman

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 7/17/2014 9:33:25 PM

Add another Senate race to the tossup list: Colorado. A new Quinnipiac University poll shows Sen. Mark Udall, a Democrat, trailing Rep. Cory Gardner, a Republican, by 2 percentage points, 44-42 percent. By a 49-40 margin, voters say Udall does not deserve to be re-elected. Colorado has come into play only recently. President Barack Obama carried the state in 2012 by 5 percentage points, but the new survey showed state voters today disapprove of of the job he’s doing by a 58-39 percent margin. And voters give Gardner better marks on the economy, saying by a 46-35 percent margin the

Comments:
I guess they weren´t impress when Obama breezed into Denver to play pool, drink beer, and collect cash while Udall hid under a table.

when the incumbent is polling at 42%, it´s not a toss up.

They are running ads that Udall supports women´s reproductive rights and Gardner will take away women´s birth control. It´s ridiculous.

Saw a poll yesterday with Udall ahead, but it was registered voters, not likely voters. A huge difference!

Maybe we should flood the state with free pot for anyone who wants it a couple days before the vote. Then give out free turkey sandwiches with extra tryptophan. Tranquility! (on voting day)

Not nearly good enough for an incumbant. There´s panic in Udall´s camp right now.

Albanian police have detained 40 illegal immigrants from Africa today, five of whom are currently under quarantine after exhibiting symptoms of Ebola, Macedonian newspaper Vecer has reported. Police suspect the five are of Eritrean origin, having arrived illegally in Europe via Greece. They are currently being tested for carrying the Ebola virus in hospital in the Albanian city of of Vlore, less than 86 miles from Italy’s closest port. The news comes after one person was quarantined in Montenegro earlier today under suspicion they may be infected with Ebola. The possible victim entered Montenegro from a West African country with

SWAT teams and angry protesters clashed in a small St. Louis suburb for a third day Tuesday, following the death of unarmed black teenager Michael Brown. The eruption of protests and violence has been a long time coming. While I certainly do not condone rioting, examining the conditions surrounding Brown’s death — and the deaths of several other unarmed black men killed by law enforcement recently — makes clear that community reactions like those in Ferguson, Mo., are bound to happen. America has continued to isolate poor black people in economically depressed neighborhoods under increasingly oppressive police tactics that breed

US Sends 130 More Troops to Iraq

CAMP PENDLETON, Calif. - Another 130 U.S. troops arrived in Iraq on Tuesday on what the Pentagon described as a temporary mission to assess the scope of the humanitarian crisis facing thousands of displaced Iraqi civilians trapped on Sinjar Mountain and evaluate options for getting them out to safety. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel announced the deployment in remarks to Marines at this Southern California base on the final stop of a weeklong, around-the-world trip that also took him to India, Germany and Australia. "This is not a combat boots on the ground kind of operation," Hagel said. "We´re not going back

Iraq militants changing tactics,

Islamic militant forces in northern Iraq appear to be shifting tactics in the face of the newly launched U.S. airstrike campaign, Defense officials say, posing a new challenge to the Obama administration as it seeks to at least slow the terrorists’ advances. According to officials, until now the Islamic State (IS) was behaving like a well-organized army, moving with strategic intent and pursuing military objectives. Now, officials are seeing at least a partial shift to classic insurgency tactics, as militants begin to blend in among the population, making targeting more difficult. “One of the things that we have seen with

FERGUSON, Mo.- The Rev. Al Sharpton says the shooting death of an unarmed 18-year-old black man by a St. Louis-area police officer is “very disturbing,” and the civil-rights leader is planning a visit to that suburb to make that known. Sharpton says he’s spoken with a grandfather of Michael Brown and plans to meet with the family in person Monday night or Tuesday in Ferguson. That’s where St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar says the shooting happened Saturday afternoon after an officer scuffled with one of two men. Brown was shot multiple times and died, though the investigation continues.

President Obama doesn’t have much of a plan, but neither does anybody else. Proceed with caution. Obama’s initial response to the rise and deadly spread of an extremist militant group in Iraq and Syria is full of holes. It is doubtful that American airstrikes will be enough to sufficiently turn back the Islamist insurgents. It is doubtful that airstrikes alone will be enough to secure an escape path for all 20,000 Yazidis, a religious minority group still under siege on a barren mountaintop. It is even questionable whether the one major condition Obama has placed on further U.S. military support

Why Ferguson burned: Explaining
St. Louis area riot to kids, outsiders

There was an eerie flashback to 1965 in parts of the St. Louis region Sunday. Riot gear. Tear gas. German shepherds. Looting. Stores on fire. Dozens arrested. It was the violent aftermath of a violent encounter the day before between a police officer and teenager Mike Brown, who was killed. On this very same night that Ferguson boiled over, the Watts riots had burned in Los Angeles nearly 50 years prior. It´s hard to explain race relations within the St. Louis metro area to those who have never lived here. It´s even harder to make sense of it for children

Spanish officials say a 75-year-old Roman Catholic priest who was infected with Ebola and flown back to Spain has received the same therapy as two American aid workers: an experimental treatment called ZMapp never before tested in humans. (Snip) That said, it is very troubling that the only people known to have gotten the drug to date are two Americans and a Spaniard. The drug´s maker, Mapp Biopharmaceutical Inc., said Monday that it also responded to a request for ZMapp from a West African nation and that its supply “is exhausted.” It did not name the nation or say whether

Russian President Vladimir Putin announced Monday that he was sending an aid convoy to eastern Ukraine on a humanitarian mission in which the International Committee of the Red Cross and Western governments were cooperating. (Snip) As the Kremlin pressed its insistence on coming to the aid of the Russian-speaking eastern Ukraine communities, NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen repeated warnings that Russian troop movements around Ukraine´s eastern border suggested a "high probability" that Moscow was preparing to invade. Borroso´s initial statement on his conversation with Poroshenko said only that the two had "discussed a proposal for humanitarian relief for eastern Ukraine."

As the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) continues to sweep through northern Iraq, U.S. lawmakers are sounding the alarm that it could be just as dangerous as al Qaeda in the days before it launched the Sept. 11 attacks on the U.S. "Every day that goes by, ISIS ... becomes a direct threat to the United States of America. They are more powerful now than al Qaeda was on 9/11," Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., said on NBC´s "Meet the Press" Sunday.

Experts Warn of Terror
Blowback from Iraq Airstrikes

The American airstrikes against a militant group in Iraq could motivate the fighters to retaliate with terror attacks against U.S. civilians, experts warn. (Snip) ISIS has long threatened America openly. In June the group’s leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, warned Americans that “soon enough, you will be in direct confrontation [with us].” Last week a spokesman for the group vowed that “we will raise the flag of Allah in the White House.” Despite that bombastic rhetoric, ISIS has thus far been consumed with its fights in Iraq and Syria, and with capturing territory to form an Islamic caliphate.

Patient Zero in the Ebola outbreak, researchers suspect, was a 2-year-old boy who died on Dec. 6, just a few days after falling ill in a village in Guéckédou, in southeastern Guinea. Bordering Sierra Leone and Liberia, Guéckédou is at the intersection of three nations, where the disease found an easy entry point to the region. A week later, it killed the boy’s mother, then his 3-year-old sister, then his grandmother. All had fever, vomiting and diarrhea, but no one knew what had sickened them. Two mourners at the grandmother’s funeral took the virus home to their village. A health

The brassiness, dishonesty and shamelessness as she slides into yet another presidential campaign season is enough to choke that old Arkansas draft mule of a husband she hitched her career to. The scheming calculation of it all would make Lady Macbeth take to the bed for blushing. How on earth did such a crafty street fighter get so completely trounced by such a naive rookie like Barack Obama in 2008?

It’s official: Obamaism is dead. Hillary Clinton killed it. It wasn’t so much a mercy killing as an expedient one, but that’s politics in the best sense. The important thing is that she broke the Democratic omertà code by stating the obvious: The president’s policy of having America sit on the sidelines of a burning world is a disaster that threatens our national security. The power of her argument is confirmed by a report that a testy Obama called it “horses–t” to congressional leaders. Even guru David Axelrod blasted her, proving she scored a direct hit on the Chicago mafia’s central nervous

They understand what a greenhouse is, how it works, why we call it the greenhouse effect.

President Obama said Thursday that “now is the time for healing” after a series of clashes between protesters and police over the shooting of a black teenager in Ferguson, Mo., but he also called for an open and transparent investigation “to see that justice is done” in the case. Speaking from Martha’s Vineyard, Mass., where he is on vacation, Obama said that many Americans “have been deeply disturbed” by images of violence in the St. Louis suburb following the police shooting Saturday afternoon of Michael Brown, an unarmed 18-year-old African American who was headed to technical college this week. “When something like

Going by the numbers, Apple fits into a stereotype of many tech companies in Silicon Valley: its workforce is overwhelmingly white and male. Overall, 70 percent of Apple employees are men as opposed to 30 percent women, and 55 percent are white, according to statistics provided by Apple. In addition, 15 percent of its overall workforce is Asian, 11 percent is Hispanic, and 7 percent is Black. (Snip) In the letter, Cook added that Apple´s definition of diversity extends beyond race, gender, and ethnicity to include such categories as "sexual orientation, veteran status, and disabilities."

An electrifying midterm rallying cry on a slow summer news day. Boehner, incidentally, isn’t one of the crappy-asses, she says. She doesn’t name names there, but she’s been known to diverge from grassroots conservatives in these matters before. What would happen, though, if Boehner turned around and made a deal with Harry Reid on amnesty in September? One of the goals of Obama’s looming power grab over legalization is to scare Republican leaders with the thought that Latino voters will be so grateful, they’ll break even harder for Democrats in 2016.

Washington - Defense Department officials said late Wednesday that United States airstrikes and Kurdish fighters had broken the Islamic militants’ siege of Mount Sinjar, allowing thousands of the Yazidis trapped there to escape. An initial report from about a dozen Marines and Special Operations forces who arrived on Tuesday and spent 24 hours on the northern Iraqi mountain said that “the situation is much more manageable,” a senior Defense official said in an interview. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, speaking to reporters Wednesday night at Andrews Air Force Base, Md., said it was “far less likely now” that the United States

Shocking accounts of medieval brutality — including video of kneeling Iraqis being gunned down, a Twitter image of a young jihadist holding a severed head and threats by ISIS to take its savagery to the White House — have prompted desperate calls for the international community to stop the fanatical Islamic group. UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon this week joined Pope Francis, Egypt´s top cleric and several world leaders in condemning the terrorist group, which now calls itself Islamic State and has carved out a caliphate, or nation of strict Sharia law, in northern Iraq and Syria.

California lawmakers are poised to enact a regulation requiring every college and university that receives public funding to define consensual sex in a way that attempts to micro-manage everyone’s sexual affairs. The first-in-the-nation legislation already passed California’s state Senate by a vote of 27-4 in May, The Associated Press reports. If the bill passes the assembly this month, it will then go to the desk of Gov. Jerry Brown. The bill, which is based on guidance from the Obama administration, requires an “affirmative consent standard” that school administrators would use to determine whether a sexual assault has occurred. The standard would define

Liberals like Chris Mooney of Mother Jones agree that today’s Republican party is “environmental[ly] retrograde,” but often acknowledge it wasn’t like that a few decades ago. For example, as Mooney noted in a Tuesday post, a GOP president, Richard Nixon, established the EPA. Mooney reports, however, that in the early 1990s the party as a whole grew distinctly more hostile towards environmentalism. He touches on several possible explanations, including a backlash against the newly elected vice president, Earth in the Balance author Al Gore, as well as a theory that after the Soviet Union collapsed, environmentalists succeeded Communists as major objects
