Cruz to Harry Reid: Get Out of ‘Ritz-

Mediaite, by Evan McMurry

Original Article

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) responded to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s (D-NV) characterization of the U.S.-Mexico border as “secure” by telling his colleague to come take a look for himself. “President Obama and Harry Reid both engage debates divorced from the facts and divorced from the reality,” Cruz said on Fox News Sunday. “Harry Reid lives in the Ritz-Carlton in Washington, D.C., and I’m sure from his perspective the border seems secure. I would invite Harry Reid to come with me down Texas and see the border.” “I’ll tell you who is holding these kids ransom,” Cruz continued, Cruz continued, “Harry Reid and the

Comments:
Senator Cruz plays some "Texan Hold´em" with the Crypt Keeper and doubles down. Of course, there is no way that Reid can win when the cards are finally turned over and his and 0bama´s lies are exposed.

At this late date (i.e. how many years!) who is paying for this ()**&^% to live at the Ritz Carlton in DC, probably one of the most expensive hotels around. Is that something like taxpayers paid $250,000/year for Plugs to get to work on the train every day?

Obamacare is about to

Washington Times, by Joseph Curl    Original Article

Analysis/Opinion: The @#%& is about to hit the fan. No, not ISIS moving to attack the West, not Russia invading Ukraine, not Ebola coming to America, not the Middle East, not Libya (where al Qaeda — surprise — now rules), not even Ferguson. Health care costs are about to explode — again — and just in time for the 2014 midterm elections. When the supermajority of Democrats in the Senate passed the ironically named Affordable Care Act in 2009, one of the chief requirements of the bill was to force health insurers, pharmaceutical companies, hospitals and health care centers to share in the staggering $2 trillion cost over

Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. this week will launch a broad civil rights investigation into the Ferguson, Mo., Police Department, according to two federal law enforcement officials. The investigation, which could be announced as early as Thursday afternoon, will be conducted by the Justice Department’s civil rights division and follow a process similar to that used to investigate complaints of profiling and the use of excessive force in other police departments across the country, the officials said. The move follows the shooting last month of Michael Brown, an 18-year-old African American, by a white Ferguson police officer who

President Barack Obama believes that many foreigners have a right to immigrate into the United States, regardless of what Americans prefer, say immigration experts. The evidence emerged from the president’s mouth on Labor Day, as Obama was urging his supporters (Snip) “Cynicism is a bad choice… Hope is what gives young people the strength to march for women’s rights, and worker’s rights, and civil rights, and voting rights, and gay rights and immigration rights,” Obama told union supporters gathered Sept. 1 in Milwaukee, Wisc. That “immigration rights” phrase “implies that some people have the right to move here,”

Bloomberg LP, the media company that operates data terminals and a financial news wires service for financiers, said late Wednesday that current president and CEO Daniel L. Doctoroff will step down at the end of the year as former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg resumes executive control of the company he founded in 1981. Bloomberg, who still owns nearly 90% of the privately-held company, will not name a replacement since he plans to run it with support from other executives in the company, the company said. Doctoroff, 56, is a close friend of Bloomberg and served as his deputy mayor.

Scientists have redrawn the cosmic map of our corner of the universe, using new tools to define which galaxies interact with our own. The so-called supercluster of galaxies that contains the Milky Way has been named "Laniakea," which means "immense heaven" in Hawaiian. Defining regions in an infinite universe is tricky business: Clusters of dozens of galaxies, called local groups, are further bound into clusters containing hundreds of galaxies. The Laniakea supercluster, described in a paper published in this week´s Nature, is 500 million light-years in diameter and contains 100,000 galaxies - and we sit at the very edge of

The organizers of the St. Patrick´s Day Parade on Fifth Avenue said Wednesday they will allow a gay group to march next year, altering a policy that has sparked controversy and protests for decades. In a statement, the organizers said they had welcomed the gay group, "Out@NBCUniversal," to march in the 2015 parade (Snip) "This change of tone and expanded inclusiveness is a gesture of goodwill to the LGBT community in our continuing effort to keep the parade above politics as it moves into its 253rd year," the organizers said in a statement, adding that the parade aims to remain "loyal to church teachings."

Al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri has announced the formation of an Indian branch of his global armed group that he said would spread Islamic rule and "raise the flag of jihad" across the subcontinent. In a video spotted in online "jihadist" forums on Wednesday by the SITE terrorism monitoring group, Zawahiri said the new force would "crush the artificial borders" dividing Muslim populations in the region. Al-Qaeda is active in Afghanistan and Pakistan, where its surviving leadership are thought to be hiding out, but Zawahiri said the group would take the fight to India, Myanmar and Bangladesh.

Andrew H. Madoff, the last surviving son of the convicted swindler Bernard L. Madoff, died on Wednesday in a Manhattan hospital, where he had been undergoing treatment for cancer. He was 48. A family lawyer, Martin Flumenbaum, said the cause was mantle-cell lymphoma, for which Mr. Madoff had been treated since early 2013. His older brother, Mark, committed suicide in 2010. The two brothers attracted worldwide attention in December 2008 after they alerted federal agents that their father, a respected Wall Street statesman, had confessed to them that his private investment management business was a vast Ponzi scheme.

New York - A judge has rejected defense requests for separate trials or juries for three defendants charged in New York with the deadly bombings of two U.S. embassies in Africa. Judge Lewis Kaplan ruled Wednesday. He also said a Libyan man arrested in Tripoli can be represented by a lawyer being paid by the Libyan government. Abu Anas al-Libi insisted he wanted to keep attorney Bernard Kleinman. He did so even after the judge warned him some published reports have alleged the Libyan government aided the United States in his capture last year. Shortly afterward, the ailing al-Libi left the hearing early because of pain in his

Why do so many women
get Alzheimers? New research
points to genetics, other factors
Washington Post, by Fredrick Kunkle    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 9/3/2014 1:35:15 PM     Post Reply
Years ago, many scientists assumed that a woman’s heart worked pretty much the same as a man’s. But as more women entered the male-dominated field of cardiology, many of those assumptions vanished, opening the way for new approaches to research and treatment. A similar shift is underway in Alzheimer’s disease. It has long been known that more women than men get the deadly neurodegenerative disease, and now an emerging body of research is challenging the common wisdom as to why. Although the question is by no means settled, recent findings suggest that biological, genetic and even cultural influences may play

During a trip to the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard on Wednesday, Vice President Joe Biden had some stern words while vowing justice against the killers of Steven Sotloff, who was beheaded by ISIS militants. Earlier in the day, President Barack Obama said ´we will not be intimidated´ and on Tuesday, Sen. Mark Kirk said Obama should ´bomb the hell´ out of them. While speaking Wednesday, Biden also used strong language. “The American people are so much stronger, so much more resolved than any enemy can fully understand,” Biden said, according to Buzzfeed. “As a nation we are united and when people harm Americans

Wendy Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor, agreed to join GOP nominee Greg Abbott for a Sept. 30 televised statewide debate in Dallas hosted by KERA, The Dallas Morning News, Telemundo and NBC (Channel 5).

Last Friday, Abbott, the state’s attorney general, withdrew from a different debate scheduled on Sept. 30 hosted by WFAA-TV and the Texas Tribune citing an inability to agree on debate format, his campaign said.

President Obama said Wednesday that the federal government has authenticated a video showing the beheading of American journalist Steven Sotloff at the hands of Islamist militants, and the U.S. objective now is to “degrade and destroy” those militants so they no longer pose a threat to the civilized world. Speaking at a press conference alongside Estonian President Toomas Hendrik Ilves in the Estonian capital of Tallinn, Mr. Obama seemed to lay the groundwork for expanded U.S. action against the terrorist group known as the Islamic State, also known by the acronyms ISIL and ISIS.

Vice President Joe Biden delivered a passionate speech at Portsmouth Naval Shipyard in New Hampshire, vowing to bring Islamic State terrorists to justice. Mentioning the deaths of American journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff, Biden referred to the Islamic State terrorists as “barbarians” for beheading them on camera. "If they think the American people will be intimidated, they don´t know us very well,” Biden said, reminding the crowd that the United States came back after 9/11 and defeated Osama bin Laden. “When people harm Americans we don’t retreat, and we don’t forget,” he said. “They should know, we will follow them

President Obama’s spokesman emphasized that the United States tried to save journalist Steven Sotloff, who has reportedly been beheaded by ISIS terrorists. “The United States, as you know, has dedicated significant time and resources to try and rescue Mr. Sotloff,” Earnest told reporters when alerted that ISIS had claimed to have executed the kidnapped reporter. In the video, the authenticity of which Earnest could confirm, Sotloff is apparently killed by the same British jihadist who killed American photojournalist James Foley. “I’m back, Obama, and I’m back because of your arrogant foreign policy towards the Islamic State,”

In addition, Apple Inc. spokeswoman Natalie Kerris said the company was investigating whether any iCloud accounts were compromised, according to the AP. Representatives for supermodel-turned-actress Upton, 22, and Lawrence, 24, who plays heroine Katniss Everdeen in the Hunger Games movie franchise, issued statements about intimate pictures which first appeared on

In remarks on the U.S. economy Monday, President Barack Obama said Congressional Republicans will eventually cave to public pressure to raise the federal minimum wage. Obama was speaking at the Laborfest festival hosted by the AFL-CIO in Milwaukee, Wis. “If I cared about these things, I’d also want more Democrats looking out for me,” he said. “I’m just saying. Because when the rest of the country is working to raise wages, but Republicans in Congress won’t, it ain’t right.” Noting the protests in recent months from fast food workers seeking higher wages, Obama said Republicans would open up to the

It took the Washington Post 2,017 words and 59 paragraphs in a feature about Dorian Johnson, who initially said that his friend Michael Brown was shot in the back, to reveal that the federal government´s autopsy also reportedly did not find that to be the case. As the Post noted in its profile of Dorian Johnson, Brown´s "body had been autopsied three times — once each by St. Louis County police, a pathologist hired by Brown’s family and federal authorities.

FRIENDSHIP, Maine -- Imagine Cape Cod without cod. Maine without lobster. The region´s famous rocky beaches invisible, obscured by constant high waters. It´s already starting to happen. The culprit is the warming seas - and in particular the Gulf of Maine, whose waters are heating up faster than 99 percent of the world´s oceans, scientists say. Long-established species of commercial fish, like cod, herring and northern shrimp, are departing for colder waters. Black sea bass, blue crabs and new species of squid - all highly unusual for the Gulf - are turning up in fishermen´s nets. The Gulf of Maine´s warming reflects broader

Barack Obama already is derelict in his duties as commander in chief. He ought to abdicate and just step off his self-made throne. Knowledgeable people were calling for Obama to begin air strikes against the Islamic State barbarians months before Obama could rouse himself to admit that the brutes were something other than “jayvee” terrorists.

Over the weekend, former President Jimmy Carter addressed the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) in Detroit. He told the assembly that the principles of Allah will benefit the whole world. Jimmy Carter left the Southern Baptist Church a few years back, citing its “rigid” views. Muslim views tend to be a whole lot more “rigid.” For instance, Saudi Arabia doesn’t allow Christians to build any churches. Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood supporters are waging pogroms against Christians. If a Muslim leaves Islam, they are called an apostate and are often marked or death. One can be an apostate just by having
