Former Virginia attorney general Richard Cullen and officials with Oakey´s Funeral Service in Roanoke say Butler died Tuesday. The Roanoke resident was 89. An attorney, Butler represented Virginia´s 6th congressional district in the U.S. House from 1972 to 1982. Watergate unfolded during his first term.

Pupils at a Welsh primary school were today left stunned when, of all people, Barack Obama and David Cameron walked into their classroom. Mr Obama greeted the smiling youngsters of Mount Pleasant Primary School in Welsh by saying ‘bore da’ - ‘good morning’. He then listened to a welcome message, thanking him for being the first serving US president to visit Wales. The road along Ruskin Avenue was faced by the sight of scores of police officers and the presidential convoy pulling up at the school gates. The president and Prime Minister were in Rogerstone, near Newport, ahead of the

A ferry bound for Britain has been stormed by up to 250 illegal immigrants who tried to force their way on board the vessel at the French port of Calais. Witnesses said security staff were forced to turn a fire hose on the crowds as they attempted to overpower officials and machine-gun wielding police by climbing over fences and running up the main ramp into the ferry´s vehicle hold. The shocking incident took place yesterday afternoon, with P&O Ferries confirming that a ´huge intrusion´ had occurred. The news comes as the mayor of Calais threatened to blockade the port unless

Left wingers are willing to sacrifice the actual interests of the poor in service to their aspirations of political power. A perennial dream of the American progressives is to organize fast food workers into a union, a move that would be an absolute disaster for the intended beneficiaries. Today, a purported 150 cities will see fast food strikes, as MSNBC approvingly reports: Thousands of fast food workers across the United States were walking off the job Thursday morning, affecting restaurants in about 150 cities nationwide. It was just the latest in a series of coordinated strikes that have taken place

Why did the IRS clean out Lois

Congress had little opportunity to debate the Internal Revenue Service’s missing-e-mail controversy while on break during the past month, but lawmakers will have plenty to talk about when they return next week. One question likely to come up is why the IRS wiped out Lois Lerner’s Blackberry shortly after congressional staffers interviewed the then-IRS official about the agency’s suspected targeting of conservative groups. So far, the IRS has offered no answers. The issue came to light last month after U.S. District Court Judge Emmet G. Sullivan ordered the IRS to explain its efforts at recovering emails that were lost when

Hillary Clinton basks in Harry
Reid’s green energy glow
Politico, by Darren Goode    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 9/4/2014 9:51:54 AM     Post Reply
LAS VEGAS — Hillary Clinton’s speech at a clean-energy summit Thursday will allow her to do two things that could help her run for president in 2016: embrace an audience of influential progressive activists and green-industry leaders, while paying tribute to Nevada Democratic kingmaker Harry Reid. At the same time, the controlled format seems tailor-made for avoiding troublesome questions on issues like the Keystone XL pipeline — as well any repeats of the recent flaps in which she criticized President Barack Obama’s foreign policy and spoke about being “dead broke” after leaving the White House. No media interviews are scheduled

NEW YORK— The title of former President George W. Bush´s book about his father will feature a number, not a name. Crown Publishers announced Wednesday that the book about former President George H.W. Bush will be called "41: A Portrait of My Father." The elder Bush was the country´s 41st president. As announced by Crown last summer, the book will be published Nov. 11 with a planned first printing of 1 million copies. The younger Bush had been quietly working on the biography over the past few years. On Wednesday, Crown also released the cover image for the book, an

SAN ANTONIO — Tesla Motors Inc. has selected Nevada as the site for its planned $5 billion “gigafactory,” an economic development prize expected to generate 6,500 jobs, two local officials confirmed Wednesday. That could mean Texas, California, Arizona and New Mexico — also competitors for the lithium-ion battery factory — are out of the running. However, a person familiar with the company´s plans told the Associated Press that a second site would still be prepared, in case Nevada is not able to deliver the incentives it has promised — or possibly to build a second factory.

The top executive for H&R Block, the nation’s largest tax preparer, on Wednesday said he expected President Obama’s health care law to add “significant complexity” to next year’s tax season. Speaking on H&R Block’s quarterly earnings conference call, CEO William Cobb said that the company was already taking steps to train its tax preparers based on the draft forms that the Internal Revenue Service has released to comply with Obamacare. “As expected, the forms are very detailed and can present significant complexity, depending on a filer’s coverage status during the year, income level, and household composition,” Cobb said.

During a press conference in Estonia on Wednesday morning, President Obama was asked about the purpose of the NATO alliance, ahead of a conference with allies in Wales. Obama described NATO as “unique in the annals of history” because of its success but admitted that the group had to move quickly to address evolving global threats. “We have to recognize that threats evolve, and threats have evolved as a consequence of what we’ve seen in Ukraine, but threats are also evolving in the Middle East that have a direct effect on Europe,” he said. He added that the “international community”

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,”

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. All found that Brown had been shot at least six times, including twice in the head but not in the

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

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

Rudy Giuliani has plans to change golf. The former mayor, a strategic adviser to the PGA, says he wants to make the game “simpler” by shortening rounds to 12 holes. “We have to make it simpler and easier. Let’s shorten the course and make playing 12 holes instead of 18 holes the norm,” Giuliani declared in a Hamptons magazine cover story with golfer Raymond Floyd. “I’ve played tennis for 20 years, and I’ve never played five sets like the pros do,” he explained. “I’ll play three sets with my pals. So why play 18 holes? That’s what pros do to win tournaments.” Giuliani

Maybe the news that a second American has been beheaded will force President Obama to recognize he has no more compelling priority today than stopping the Islamic State and its bloodletting. In its latest barbarity, ISIS aimed to project American weakness to the world. Just before he beheaded Steven Sotloff, the ISIS executioner explained the butchery this way: I’m back, Obama, and I’m back because of your arrogant foreign policy towards the Islamic State, because of your insistence on continuing your bombings.?.?.

Michael Sam, “the first openly gay player ever drafted by the NFL®,” is better at football than I am, he’s better at football than you are, but he’s not good enough to make the Rams.

How many hate crimes can one city commit in a single month? Sam, the most celebrated 7th round draft pick in history, was cut Saturday not because he’s gay, but because he’s not (yet) good

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
