Jackson Lee: We Need to Re-Think
US International Flights

News 92 FM ( Houston, TX), by Bonnie Petrie

(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.

First lady Michelle Obama is making a new push to increase voter turnout in November with a video that targets Democratic voters. In her most public pitch so far this political season, she tells Democrats to be “even more passionate and more hungry” than they were during races in 2012. “These elections will be even harder and even closer than those presidential elections,” she said in the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee video, which debuted 100 days before the election. “We’re talking about races that are won and lost by just a few thousand votes or even a few hundred votes.” To spur the

Grand Junction, Colo. - Officials at some Denver homeless shelters say the legalization of marijuana has contributed to an increase in the number of younger people living on the city´s streets. Homeward Bound in Grand Junction, also has taken note of the increase. "One of the things that´s driving our increased numbers, and we´re seeing it from shelters in other parts of this state in Colorado where legalized marijuana, retail sales of marijuana have driven people to Colorado and I think that comes from what we´re seeing from other shelters," said executive director of Homeward Bound, Douglas Karl.

After a barrage of negative feedback from the Irish American community in New York and abroad, owner George Watson taped over it with a homemade replacement saying, ´No Sensitive Drunks´. Mr Watson said that it was meant in jest and targeted the Irish in particular because of the ´sense of humour´ It´s believed the sign originated from an ´inside joke´ within the community relating to particular event.

Hamas fired rockets at central Israel around 10 p.m. Saturday, making a mockery of a four-hour Israeli ceasefire extension that began two hours earlier. Meanwhile, Israel´s Diplomacy and Security Cabinet has voted to extend the ceasefire by a further 24 hours in response to UN requests, a security source told AFP on condition of anonymity. The truce will end on Sunday night at 9 p.m. Hamas for its part has rejected the ceasefire extension by Israel, demanding Israeli troops withdraw first. No humanitarian ceasefire is valid without Israeli tanks withdrawing from the Gaza Strip and without residents being able to

It was a mad dash to hug Hillary Clinton. Toward the end of an event Friday at the Bronx Children’s Museum, Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor set dozens of kids upon the former secretary of state, urging them to hug her and other leaders who attended. But first, Sotomayor got the children fired up. “I need for you to do something right now,” she said, holding a microphone and standing among a hoard of kids wearing bright green t-shirts. “I need for you to jump up and down and say thank you for caring for me!” “On the count of

Rand Paul (R-K.Y.) continued his quest to expand the Republican Party´s inclusiveness on Friday with a bipartisan speech to the National Urban League in Cincinnati, where he pressed for fairer treatment of minorities in criminal justice and education. He suggested that “race still plays a role in the enforcement of the law” and argued more needs to be done to ensure minorities receive fair sentencing. “Three out of four people in prison right now for non-violent crimes are black or brown.

LOS ANGELES — President Barack Obama met privately Thursday with four former gang members and the head of a Los Angeles nonprofit that is helping them turn around their lives. The brief meeting with Homeboy Industries founder Father Gregory Boyle and the four teenagers who all served time for their gang-related activities took place after Obama´s speech at Los Angeles Trade-Technical College. The teens stood in a semi-circle and the president approached each one, asked his name and age, and took a picture with him. Obama then gave them a short pep talk, telling them how he had been raised

(WASHINGTON) -- The House cleared a procedural hurdle on Thursday to set up a showdown between House Speaker John Boehner and President Obama next week. The House Rules Committee voted 7-4 to approve a markup of H. Res. 676, which provides authority to initiate litigation for actions by the president or other executive branch officials inconsistent with their duties under the Constitution of the United States. Next week, the measure will require a rule before floor consideration by the full House. A vote on the bill is likely to be among the final acts the House takes before lawmakers enjoy a five-week

A statement put out today by President Barack Obama on the occasion of a religious holiday is raising some eyebrows. The holiday is a Muslim one called "Eid-al-Fitr" and the statement says: his last month has been a time of fasting, reflection, spiritual renewal, and service to the less fortunate. While Eid marks the completion of Ramadan, it also celebrates the common values that unite us in our humanity and reinforces the obligations that people of all faiths have to each other, especially those impacted by poverty, conflict, and disease. In the United States, Eid also reminds us of the many achievements and contributions of Muslim Americans to

The ferocity of Friday’s unanimous rejection by the Israeli government of Secretary of State John Kerry’s cease was kept quiet to prevent a formal rupture of relations between the two erstwhile allies, reports Israel’s Channel 2 Television. The popular and widely-watched Saturday evening newscast quotes several unnamed high officials in the Israeli government who claimed that Kerry’s cease fire proposal represented a “complete cave-in” to Hamas’s demands for an end to fighting in its war against Israel. The official, and others cited in The Times of Israel, claimed that Israel was “stunned” and “absolutely horrified” that Kerry’s ceasefire proposal, which contained

President Obama appears poised to take executive action that would legalize as many as 5 million illegal immigrant parents of U.S.-born children, a prospect that riles local immigration critics and adds a new dimension to concern about swelling immigrant populations in states like Massachusetts eyed as hosting sites for thousands of children who crossed the border unaccompanied. The Associated Press reported yesterday White House officials are laying the groundwork for an executive order that would automatically legalize roughly 5 million of an estimated 11 million people who have entered the country without legal authorization or overstayed their visas.

When The Times of Israel’s Avi Issacharoff first reported the content of John Kerry’s ceasefire proposal on Friday afternoon, I wondered if something had gotten lost in translation. It seemed inconceivable that the American secretary of state would have drafted an initiative that, as a priority, did not require the dismantling of Hamas’s rocket arsenal and network of tunnels dug under the Israeli border. Yet the reported text did not address these issues at all, nor call for the demilitarization of Gaza. It seemed inconceivable that the secretary’s initiative would specify the need to address Hamas’s demands for a lifting of

Former presidential nominee Mitt Romney would win the popular vote if a rematch of the 2012 election against President Obama were held today, a CNN/ORC poll has revealed. According to the poll, if the 2012 election were held again today, Romney would receive 53% of the popular vote, and Mr. Obama would receive 44%, CNN reported. Obama beat Romney 51%-47% in the actual election. The poll said, however, that the former Massachusetts governor would lose against Hillary Clinton by double digits in a hypothetical election. Mrs. Clinton would earn 55% of the vote, with Mr. Romney at 42%.

Illegal immigrants plan to picket the White House Monday afternoon, calling on fellow immigrant-rights advocacy groups to refuse to meet with the Obama administration until President Obama specifically includes illegal immigrants in any future meetings. “We are among the millions of people who will either benefit or be harmed by the decisions the President makes, and we are here to represent ourselves in any future negotiations,” said Rosi Carrasco, one of organizers, in a statement announcing the action. Billing themselves “undocumented immigrant leaders,” the organizers said they will erect a picket line to symbolize their demand. The groups are fighting

Sunday on CNN´s "Fareed Zakaria GPS," former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton discussed the United States standing in the world and said former President George W. Bush is the president who made her "proud to be an American." Clinton then seemingly took a shot at Obama´s current lack of direction in world leadership. "We have to go back out and sell ourselves," Clinton said. "It is not to be taken for granted. What do we stand for and, how do we intend to lead and manage? How do we try to enlist the rest of the world in this struggle between cooperation and order and conflict and disorder which is really at the root of so much

A leading drug policy researcher, David Murray, has a must-read piece up at the Hudson Institute website, "Comparing Marijuana and Alcohol: Seriously." Murray´s article is a devastating deconstruction of claims that marijuana is relatively safe, or at least safer than alcohol. And, as he points out, it thereby undermines much of the basis of the New York Times´s blithely irresponsible editorial endorsement of marijuana legalization. Read Murray´s whole piece. Here are highlights: It’s a remarkable weekend when one finds the Grey Lady arguing for state’s rights, and worrying huffily about arbitrary Presidential powers.

Geraldo Rivera hates it whenever any one around him refers to people illegally crossing the border as “illegals.” On Monday’s edition of Outnumbered he challenged FNC’s Ainsley Earhardt when she dared to use that phrase in his presence. Rivera barked: “Every time you say ‘illegals,’ it’s like fingernails on a black board!” Well Earhardt, along with a few of her co-panelists, fought back against Rivera’s insistence that the border-crossers were “law-abiding.” (video after the jump) The following is the relevant exchange as it was aired on the July 28 edition of FNC’s Outnumbered: Andrea Tantaros: Ainsley how does this move,

In 2012, four years after sort-of-stumping-but-not-really for her mother’s presidential campaign, Chelsea Clinton sat down for a lengthy, laudatory profile for Vogue. “Historically, I deliberately tried to lead a private life in the public eye,” she said. “And now I am trying to lead a purposefully public life.” Last April, Clinton told Fast Company magazine much the same thing. As she also did with NBC’s Brian Williams, who interviewed Clinton after she was hired by the network as a “special correspondent” — albeit one with no journalism experience. Her starting salary: $600,000 a year. “For most of my life I did deliberately

The Catholic Church—through the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Committee on Migration—both paved the road for Barack Hussein Obama’s ultimate takeover of Free West society and continues to actively enable the Fundamental Transformation of America by sinking the US in a tsunami of illegal aliens. In coming to Obama’s aid in erasing forever America’s borders, the bishops sold the USA out, including its Catholics, for the proverbial 30 pieces of silver. In biblical terms, Obama and the Catholic bishops—who both birthed his progress to the seat of power and back him on his Fundamental Transformation mission—are in in league with the devil.
