Lois Lerner: A Partisan
Hack, Not A Public Servant

Investor´s Business Daily, by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:PageTurner, 7/31/2014 10:21:18 AM

Scandal: A congressional panel has released new emails from top IRS official Lois Lerner, revealing a boiling hatred for the conservatives she illegally targeted. So much for claims that she was just a disinterested bureaucrat. The latest batch of emails released Wednesday by the House Ways and Means Committee contained more than a "smidgeon" of hatred and intolerance from the IRS chief of tax-exempt organizations already famous for singling out conservative Tea Party groups for enforcement scrutiny. "Great," Lerner wrote to an IRS colleague who complained about conservative radio at work. "Maybe we are through if there are that many

She should be in jail and her boss, Obama, knew what she was doing all along and condoned it.

We are never going to be able to impeach Obama, so let´s concentrate on sending Lerner, Holder, and as many cabinet members as possible to prison, and hang this corruption around Obama´s neck so that Obama is eternally paired with Nixon in all historical references.

Goes way beyond Lerner. These people, who work for US btw, are beneath slugs. OUR government is invested with them. We need a leader who´ll not only clean house, but change the culture.

That person exists, in the U.S. right now. Who knows who it is? Will they step up?

Immigration: When California Gov. Jerry Brown hung out the "all welcome" sign for illegals, Mexico´s drug cartels heard him loud and clear. Raids on Thursday left lawmen declaring Los Angeles a cash-laundering mecca. Roping off 100 blocks of downtown Los Angeles this week, federal agents from the U.S. attorney´s office raided roughly 70 garment district businesses along with a few houses in tony Westwood and Beverly Hills. The suspected crime was laundering money for Mexico´s Sinaloa cartel. Agents hauled out $65 million in cash stuffed in duffel bags, suitcases and boxes, some of it blood-spattered.

Silverado Fire: Mandatory Evacuations
Ordered as 1,600 Acres Charred
in Cleveland National Forest
KTLA-TV [Los Angeles, CA], by Tracy Bloom*    Original Article
Posted By: PageTurner- 9/13/2014 3:14:16 AM     Post Reply
As temperatures soared Friday, a brush fire burning in the mountains of Cleveland National Forest south of Corona grew to 1,600 acres, sending a plume of smoke towering above Silverado Canyon that was visible from miles away. Mandatory evacuations started at 6 p.m. for the area from 30331 Silverado Canyon Road east to the end of the canyon, authorities. That order was issued in part because of expected nighttime downslope winds that could push the flames into populated areas in the canyon bottom, Battalion Chief Mike Petro said. Brush left very dry by the state’s historic drought had created heavy fuels that were burning

On a daily basis, numerous street vendors and performers can be found throughout Lima trying to make ends meet. Whether they are juggling or dancing at intersections or perhaps offering to wash a car, it can be assumed that these individuals have little to no fixed income. It is becoming increasingly likely as well that they are foreigners. On Wednesday, authorities decided that the issue of foreigners who have arrived to Lima illegally needed to be resolved. In such districts as Miraflores, San Isidro, and Central Lima, a total of 32 male and 10 female foreigners were detained. Those rounded up by the police were natives of Argentina,

“In Chile there´s no room, and there can be no room, for violence or fear,” President Michelle Bachelet said Thursday at a ceremony commemorating the 41st anniversary of the 1973 military coup and several days after a bomb blast injured 14 people in this capital. The 17-year military dictatorship remains controversial and a rift in Chilean society. The ceremony, held in the La Moneda presidential palace, was attended by representatives of various social and political organizations, including Senate leader Isabel Allende, the daughter of then-President Salvador Allende, who took his own life during the putsch led by

Argentina is heading towards social outbreak due to soaring inflation, head of the anti-government CGT Azul y Blanca labor confederation Luis Barrionuevo said in statements that have already sparked controversy. “President (Cristina Fernández) said that if inflation reached 25% Argentina would burst, and we will be reaching 40% of inflation (soon),” Barrionuevo told reporters on Thursday as he warned conflict will flare up in December. “Who predicted what is coming is President (Cristina Fernandez) herself,” the union leader insisted adding that “our time is not politicians’ time.”

Wildfire in Cleveland National
Forest explodes in size

Fast-moving brush fire in the parched hills of Cleveland National Forest grew to more than 350 acres in less than three hours Friday, fueled by tinder-dry vegetation and steep, hard-to-reach terrain. The so-called Silverado fire was first reported at 10:32 a.m. in the Cleveland National Forest in the near 30500 block of Silverado Canyon Road. Hot weather was fueling flames as they moved up mountain slopes, consuming chaparral and oak trees “that had not burned in several years,” Orange County Fire Authority Capt. Larry Kurtz said. “The fire is burning up to the ridge lines, which is where we hope to stop

Hillary Clinton Quietly Scrubs

Hillary Clinton is widely considered, should she enter the 2016 presidential race, the Democratic front runner. But the former secretary of state is shrinking rather than building an already limited website presence. Sometime within the last two months, Hillaryclintonoffice.com quietly removed the only substantive content featured on her website, a set a remarks from three events from early 2013. The home page of the site that included a "remarks" button in addition to the "contact" button vanished sometime between July 23 and August 27 as these images show: Mrs. Clinton launched the website within a week of concluding her tenure as

Chile passes landmark tax reform into law

SANTIAGO - Chile´s Congress approved President Michelle Bachelet´s tax reform bill on Wednesday evening, the first key part of the center-left leader´s tax-and-spend campaign pledge to reduce inequality. The reform, which will increase the cost of doing business in Chile by raising corporate taxes and closing some tax exemptions, had been fiercely opposed by right-wing politicians and business leaders, who say it will crimp investment at a time when economic growth is slowing. The government says the extra cash it will bring in - equivalent to about 3 percentage points of gross domestic product by 2018 - is needed to pay

Pension ´spiking´ to cost CalPERS
nearly $800 million, controller says

Taxpayers and local governments are on the hook to pay nearly $800 million stemming from "legal" pension spiking over the next two decades, the state controller said Tuesday. The price tag came as Controller John Chiang issued a new audit of the California Public Employees´ Retirement System. The audit of 11 state and local government agencies found no illegal pension spiking but concluded that the country´s largest public retirement fund makes itself vulnerable to the practice by not aggressively reviewing its 3,100 member agencies´ payroll records. Pension spiking is the practice of hiking a public employee´s pay, through a promotion or salary

SALT LAKE CITY — A lunch worker did not follow policy when taking away meals from students at a local elementary school in late January, an independent review released Thursday concluded. Some parties disagree, saying the lunch worker should not shoulder blame for administrative errors and inconsistencies between policy and practice. "The responsibilities that are in (the report) weren´t being followed by the principal, and so I believe that´s more of a contributing factor to what happened, and putting this blame on the frontline worker, I believe, is just unfair," said Michael Clara, Salt Lake City School Board member over District 2.

Food inflation climbs 210%
in 24 months in Venezuela
El Universal [Caracas, Venezuela], by Victor Salmeron    Original Article
Posted By: PageTurner- 9/11/2014 4:01:00 PM     Post Reply
In an attempt to slow down the increase in food prices, the Venezuelan government has implemented a price regulation policy for many products, managed a large network of agro-industrial companies, and held thousands of hectares in the agricultural sectors. However, the results are below the expectations. Based on the figures disclosed by the Central Bank of Venezuela (BCV), the average price of food and non-alcoholic beverages skyrocketed 210% in August 2012 - August 2014. Analysts attributed the leap mainly to the large number of bills printed by the central bank and thus injected into the economy to meet expenditure, which surpasses the

President Obama in his ISIS speech did his best to convince the American people that things are under control, that he will pursue a coalition with other nations to degrade and ultimately destroy ISIS and that he will do it only through air strikes. (Snip) When Obama declared he had no strategy yet on ISIS a few weeks ago he was perceived as a weak and indecisive leader, but is that all the reason for his reluctance to fight ISIS? Or are there other, hidden reasons why Obama does not want to destroy ISIS? Reluctance and refusal to go to war,

Hillary Clinton has revealed that she worked through her husband’s affair whilst he was President by making him go through an agonising ´truth and reconciliation´ process. The former US Secretary of State said that she forced Bill Clinton into South Africa-style hearings where he had to be completely honest before she forgave him. She said she was inspired by the country´s former leader Nelson Mandela and that she had to act otherwise she would remain in a mental ´prison´ for the rest of her life.

Even someone as savvy about everything as Michelle Obama sometimes flubs an outfit — or to put it more politely, wears something that doesn’t enhance her natural attractions. Which is not to say that’s all that matters about the first lady, who’s been busy with a variety of public events this week: registering voters in Georgia, cutting the ribbon on the renovated White House Visitors Center, commemorating the 9/11 terrorist attacks, even appearing in a videotaped shout-out to Prince Harry. Take a look at what she wore for all that. A little too full for her figure? (Photographs).. A flattering

A high school football booster club in Ventura was prohibited from selling Chick-fil-A sandwiches at its back-to-school night event because the principal didn’t like the restaurant owner’s position on gay marriage, according to CBS Los Angeles. Val Wyatt, principal of Ventura High School, was quoted in the Ventura County Star as stating, “With their political stance on gay rights and because the students of Ventura High School and their parents would be at the event, I didn’t want them on campus.” The principal was echoed by Ventura Unified School District Superintendent Trudy Tuttle Arriaga, who said, “We value inclusivity and diversity

This week, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) slandered a group of Middle Eastern Christians who were trying to raise awareness of their struggle to avoid a genocide in the Middle East. His cynical grandstanding was rightly condemned — but he was hardly alone. Cruz agreed to speak to this group, which included bishops of the Catholic and Orthodox Churches, ostensibly out of solidarity, but took the occasion to antagonize them over their insufficient praise for Israel, then smeared them as anti-Semites before dropping the mic. The Washington Free Beacon publicized this flameout — their publisher said the room

SAN DIEGO — African-American elementary students in California were chronically truant at nearly four times the rate of all students during the last school year, according to a state report released Friday. The report by the California Attorney General´s office is the first time the data has been broken down according to race and income levels. Officials say such data is needed to address the problem. Poverty and suspensions are contributing factors. Overall, more than 250,000 elementary school students missed 10 percent or more of the 2013-2014 school year or roughly 18 or more school days. The absences were highest at the kindergarten and

Voter turnout during last month´s primary races was a little too good in some counties, Arizona elections officials said Friday. Some precincts in northern Arizona tallied more ballots cast than there are registered voters, the Arizona Capitol Times reported. According to officials, errors made by poll workers and elections officials in Apache and Navajo counties led to the miscalculations. Initial reports from some precincts showed a turnout of anywhere from 200 to 400 percent. In Apache County, the Puerco West precinct reportedly had 100 votes cast, but only 23 voters are registered there. The voter turnout added up to 434

Check your hygiene privilege. Cabbies who smell badly are probably just oppressed folks who came directly from their terrorist training camp to the airport and didn’t have time to change. Body odour is among 52 criteria that officials at San Diego International Airport use to judge taxi drivers. Cabbies say that smacks of prejudice and discrimination. It does discriminate between cabbies who smell like an open sewer and those who don’t. It further prejudges what a good smell is.

Let’s start with the end. When it’s over — when you make it through the marathon that is Ken Burns’s beautiful, seven-part documentary “The Roosevelts: An Intimate History,” which begins Sunday night on PBS — you may find yourself with a lingering, nebulous grief. You’re sorry it’s over. You’re sorry they’re over. You’re sorry a certain expression of American ideals is, or often appears to be, completely over. My study habits haven’t improved since college; like an idiot, I put off watching all 14 hours of “The Roosevelts” until I absolutely had to watch them on a deadline binge this week.
