(HOUSTON) – The loss of Malaysia Airlines flight 17 may lead to changes on how American airliners get to their international destinations. Houston Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee says this incident makes clear that all air space isn’t safe, and we might want to think carefully about where we fly. “Airlines that are under our flag, we must assess how they travel internationally,” Jackson Lee said. “We owe that to the American people.” But Jackson Lee says American planes will inevitably fly over some conflicted countries. “As you well know, Israel is in conflict and we have a strong tie with Israel, and our flights

They already did that months ago, the Malaysians just wanted to save some fuel costs and ended up in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Its comforting to know that we have the brain trust on top of this problem. In fact, is there any problem big or small that SJL doesn´t think the government should save the world from?

She doesn´t know Sheila from Shinola.

Suck a lollipop, Sheila for brains.

Vice President Joe Biden was heckled by a group of immigration reform activists during a speech he gave this evening to a gathering of progressives. Midway through Biden´s remarks to the roughly 3,000 attendees of the annual Netroots Nation conference, protestors began chanting, ´Stop deporting our families,´ at the Obama administration official. ´Let´s take these one issue at a time, OK,´ Biden angrily shouted at the hecklers, who interrupted him as he was talking about the prevalence of sexual assault on campus. ´I respect your view, and I share your view, but let me take these issues one . .

Four-star Gen.

Arizona Sen. John McCain said Thursday that he believes Republicans can defeat former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in 2016, but only if they pass immigration reform. “She’s the odds-on favorite right now,” McCain said of Clinton at the “Politics on Tap” event hosted by CNN and National Journal. “But I think we have a long list of people who could defeat Hillary Clinton.” McCain suggested New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, and Ohio Gov. John Kasich by name as potential Clinton vanquishers. “We’ve got some very successful governors that have done very well in their states

Face the Nation host Bob Schieffer said Obama’s comment that “We live in a complex world” “may the understatement of the year”, and claimed the world may be more dangerous now than at the height of the Cold War. Schieffer listed off crises around the world, quoting Sen. John McCain (R., Ariz.), who recently said “I have never seen the world in more turmoil than it is today.” “I don’t want to be overly dramatic here tonight, Scott,” Schieffer told CBS Evening News anchor Scott Pelley, “but I think that we are in a very dangerous time right now.

Amid a flurry of Republican calls for a special prosecutor to investigate the Internal Revenue Service’s alleged targeting of conservative groups, the Justice Department is set to defend its own probe of the matter as exhaustive and sufficient during a House hearing Thursday on the department’s response to the scandal. A top Justice Department official will tell the hearing that the department is now looking at how some of former senior IRS official Lois Lerner’s emails disappeared -- a new area of inquiry, Attorney General Eric Holder told ABC News in an exclusive interview Friday.

No one’s heard anything yet from Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, the former prisoner-of-war freed in a May 31 swap for five Taliban leaders after nearly five years as a Taliban prisoner. He hasn’t spoken to the press—by all accounts, he hasn’t even spoken to his parents. But, in typical American fashion, he has retained—and spoken to—an attorney. “Sergeant Bergdahl is deeply grateful to President Obama for having saved his life,” Eugene Fidell, retained a week ago by the soldier, told TIME on Wednesday. Fidell has traveled to Texas—where Bergdahl has returned to active duty at a desk job in San

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Wednesday repeated his position that "Israel will continue to do what it needs to do to defend itself until peace and quiet are restored." The premier spoke at a joint news conference with Italian Foreign Minister Federica Mogherini at the Knesset on Wednesday. Netanyahu called on the international community to condemn Hamas for committing the "double war crime" of firing on Israeli civilians and using Palestinian noncombatants as human shields. He also said that the "most important step for the international community to insist on" is "the demilitarization of Gaza."

Each day, they live in fear. Sometimes it´s the fear of rockets dropping from the sky. Sometimes it´s violent fundamentalists taking over their cities. Sometimes it´s the barrel bombs stuffed with TNT and nails. Exactly what horror they face depends on which border they live within. Syria, Iraq, Gaza, Israel and Libya. Each with its unique crisis, but all now unified in a heightened sense of anxiety as years of conflict come to a head. "I would argue," U.S. Sen. John McCain said this week, "that given conditions in the Middle East, this might be more dangerous than any time

   

 



 
Obama announces funds to prepare

In his ongoing effort to combat climate change through executive authority, President Obama announced Wednesday a series of investments to support communities across the country as they prepare for the worst effects yet to come. The millions provided will give communities and states the funds to shore up their vulnerabilities, as well as “create jobs, provide certainty to states and communities, support American businesses, and grow our economy,” a statement from the White House said. The president has made it a second-term priority to tackle climate change, as Republicans routinely deny that the Earth’s temperature is warming and dramatically altering weather patterns.

After President Barack Obama breathlessly addressed four different foreign-policy issues during a 10-minute statement, he summed up the state of a crisis-filled world in one sentence. "We live in a complex world and at a challenging time," Obama said. Obama touched on the laundry list of global flashpoints situations during a statement from the White House on Wednesday — the disputed elections in Afghanistan, the negotiations on Iran´s nuclear program, the Israeli-Palestinian crisis, and, finally, the conflict in Ukraine. The most significant recent development in these situations was the announcement of new sanctions on Russia shortly before the president spoke. Obama described those

The House Rules Committee held a hearing on the proposed lawsuit, which is intended to prove the unconstitutionality of Obama’s unilateral delay of the employer mandate portion of the Affordable Care Act. Witnesses at the hearing argued about whether the House has standing to sue the president to enforce the law. “I’m very optimistic that this lawsuit will succeed,” Rivkin said in an interview. “I certainly expect there to be a propaganda offensive to

According to documents obtained by the Washington Post, on top of that mammoth speaking fee, Clinton´s contract demands……the university provide "a presidential glass panel teleprompter and a qualified operator," that Clinton´s office have "final approval" of her introducer and the moderator of any question-and-answer session, as well as "the sets, backdrops, banners, scenery, logos, settings, etc," and that the

After sending a letter and questioning Attorney General Eric Holder twice and former FBI Director Robert Mueller once about the probe, Rep.

Barack Obama provoked fury in the U.S. by casually devoting mere moments to the deaths of 295 people aboard a Malaysian airliner on Thursday in Wilmington, Delaware, and then launching into jokes and his prepared remarks on the need to expand America´s transportation infrastructure. Twenty-three Americans are feared dead after the jetliner crashed in eastern Ukraine. Obama declared that ´it looks like it may be a terrible tragedy, but not before enthusiastically declaring that ´it is wonderful to be back in Delaware.´ ´Before I begin, obviously the world is watching reports of a downed passenger jet near the Russia-Ukraine border.

U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Samantha Power posted photos on Twitter Wednesday to illustrate the purported effects of climate change on a West African nation’s coastline, but the pictures show a hotel that collapsed into the sea 12 years ago, the victim of erosion blamed largely on years of illegal mining of coastal sand. “Had sobering meeting with Benin’s U.N. Ambassador, who described the devastating effects of climate change on his coastal country,” she tweeted. “Showed me chilling photos of eroding coastline, said ‘that’s climate change – a daily life of falling in the sea.’”
