The Palestinian Interior Ministry says Israeli shelling near the southern Gaza town of Rafah killed at least 25 people, while hospital workers near the town put the death toll at 40. Israel has accused Hamas and other Palestinian militant groups of violating the US and UN-mediated truce, but did not elaborate, amid Israeli media reports that gunmen had fired at Israeli soldiers in the Rafah area. An official in Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu´s office said Hamas and other armed groups in the Gaza Strip had "flagrantly violated the ceasefire". Israeli newspaper Haaretz reported two mortar shells fired from within

They should hold a cease fire in 2-hour increments, which would be a lot more realistic. Why would terrorists even think about honor and honesty? They WANT their women and children to be killed so the useful idiots on CNN can show the 24/7 bloody pictures. Victimhood does them a lot more good than a cease fire.

You´re right #1, and I´m surprised that AP hasn´t hired high school cheer leaders for the Palestinians. Lord, their ´´reporting´´ must be right from Al Jazeera.

Former VP Cheney meeting with

The leading architect of the Iraq War will be on Capitol Hill Tuesday for a private chat with House Republicans, just as Congress is grappling again with how involved the United States should be in the region’s snowballing unrest. Yes, that would be former Vice President Dick Cheney, one of the war’s most ardent defenders to this day. He was invited by the campaign arm of the Republicans to come speak at the first GOP weekly conference meeting since Congress’ five-week break, a House GOP official confirmed to the Loop. With the midterm elections nearing, the get-together was originally intended to focus

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) said she would support efforts to pass a constitutional amendment to limit money in politics. “This is the time to amend the Constitution,” Warren said. “Our democracy is in real danger.” Later Monday, the Senate will vote on whether to proceed to a constitutional amendment that would reverse two Supreme Court decisions by limiting money in politics. Warren said the vote is necessary because the Supreme Court has made it possible for the wealthiest to “buy elections.” She pointed out that during the 2012 election, 32 wealthy people contributed the same amount as 3.7 million people

President Barack Obama´s top health adviser on Monday called for an end to partisan bickering over Obamacare, saying the public and businesses are sending a clear message to Washington that it is time to move on with implementing the law. "The Affordable Care Act is clearly working," U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Burwell told a university audience in remarks that unveiled a new administration message about the successes of the healthcare reform law just as the midterm election campaign debate about its future intensifies.

The beatings of three people in a Kroger parking lot Saturday night will not be investigated as a hate crime, according to police officials. Memphis Police Department director Toney Armstrong said he’s had lots of calls asking how the investigation would proceed but said there is “not sufficient enough evidence to investigate this as a hate crime.” “I know this has a lot of racial undertones,” Armstrong said during a news conference Monday at Memphis City Hall. “I’ve gotten a lot of calls and I know (Memphis Mayor A C Wharton) has as well.

Joan Rivers "banned" First Lady Michelle Obama, pop star Adele and talk show host Chelsea Handler from attending her funeral just weeks before her sudden death. The comedienne sent Hollywood into mourning when she died Thursday, days after suffering a cardiac arrest during a routine throat procedure. Her funeral was held in her New York on Sunday and attracted stars including Hugh Jackman, Whoopi Goldberg, Kelly Osbourne and Sarah Jessica Parker, and it has now emerged Rivers had previously drawn up a wish-list of famous faces who should stay away.

Two environmental activists, who had planned to use the necessity defense against charges of blocking a shipment of coal to a Massachusetts power plant, walked out of court this morning after prosecutors abruptly dropped all charges against them. Ken Ward and Jay O’Hara planned to use the unusual defense — arguing that they were acting to prevent harm from global warming to the planet — in a trial slated to start today that would have featured high-profile witnesses, including NASA climate scientist Jim Hansen and environmental activist and author Bill McKibben. At the courthouse, Bristol District Attorney C. Samuel Sutter said that

Washington - Secretary of State John Kerry is to set off Tuesday on a trip to Jordan and Saudi Arabia as part of efforts to build an international coalition to counter Islamic State militants. A State Department spokeswoman said that more than 40 countries have already indicated a willingness to help out in some way against the jihadist fighters, who have seized a swath of Syria and northern Iraq. "What the goal of the coalition is is to coordinate on the threat that ISIL poses," Jen Psaki said, adding that the allies would have differing roles and that not all would

WASHINGTON — U.S. workers face a dim future, with stagnant or falling pay and fewer openings for full-time jobs. That´s the picture that emerges from a survey of Harvard Business School alumni. More than 40 percent of the respondents foresee lower pay and benefits for workers. Roughly half favor outsourcing work over hiring staffers. A growing share prefer part-time employees. Nearly half would rather invest in new technology than hire or retain workers. At the same time, it´s becoming harder for the executives to find skilled workers, according to the survey results being released Monday. Jan Rivkin,

Obamacare´s Device Tax
Grows More Devious

Business is not going well at the Internal Revenue Service. (snip) Because it’s assessed on sales, even unprofitable companies have to pay it. That’s a hefty blow to the 80 percent of the industry comprised of smaller start-up companies, which may be years away from posting profits. The tax is also sapping investment in the United States. In the AdvaMed survey, three-quarters of device firms said that they had cut back on capital investments, put off opening new facilities, deferred pay raises, or reduced investments in start-ups. Bloomington, Indiana-based Cook Medical has stated that it “will no longer be able to

Furious Muslims are flooding the internet with their own version of the Ice Bucket Challenge in protest against the Islamic State - by burning the terror group´s flag. Dozens of pictures and videos are trending on Twitter and YouTube showing campaigners from America to Lebanon setting fire to the black jihadist standard. The groundswell of disgust comes after the sickening beheadings of two U.S. journalists which were even denounced by hate cleric Abu Qatada. One image posted on Twitter shows demonstrators in London torching an IS flag with the message: ´Arab World´s version of the Ice Bucket Challenge.´ Another shows

Key Republicans will move Monday to try to prevent Libyans from being able to learn to fly airplanes at U.S. flight schools or train as nuclear scientists, introducing legislation to stop the Obama administration from loosening the rules. At a time when press accounts suggest Islamist militants may have stolen 11 jetliners from the airport in Tripoli last month, the House Republicans say it’s critical to keep a decades-old ban on Libyans being able to train at U.S. schools. The White House Office of Management and Budget approved the changes last month and they are awaiting a final signature by Homeland Security

State Department spokesman Jen Psaki makes me psick. If you read P.G. Wodehouse, you know the “P” in her name is silent, as in “phthisis,” “psychic” and “ptarmigan” (as Wodehouse’s Psmith explains). And Psaki’s colleague Marie Harf makes me barf. Together Psaki and Harf give the catastrophic foreign policy of the Obama administration a lighter than air, Valley Girl kind of feel. It’s a novel use of expressive form. Paul Mirengoff explores their weightlessness in the adjacent post. As Paul recounts, Harf came to the defense of Psaki when Bill O’Reilly had the temerity to utter pslightly pscathing words about Psaki

There are moments in edited TV content when a keyed-in viewer can see a cut intended to make a “comfort edit”, smoothing out the narrative. The Chuck Todd interview with President Obama was riddled with them. Even when being interviewed by a fellow ideological traveler.

When the topic is positive, or viewed as favorable currency, the term “my administration” is used. @01:05 “what I have done over the past several months” – President Obama knowing he was caught flat-footed, having called

Iraqi forces reported that the head of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) ´Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi´ was killed in U.S airstrikes. "Despite that Iraqi and U.S sources confirmed the killing of Abu Bajr al-Baghdadi, but the White House did not confirmed it yet", AFP reported. Three senior members of the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) - including an aide to its leader - were killed in a U.S. airstrike in Iraq, a senior Iraqi security official told NBC News Thursday.

In a few days president Obama will unveil his strategy to destroy ISIS to a waiting public. (Snip) However the basic outlines of the strategy itself have emerged from information already available to the press. A Los Angeles Times story suggests that Obama will rely on proxies to fight ISIS at three levels: on the ground, within the region and in the West. Kerry invokes comparisons to the Sunni Awakening, seeking to recall the days when al-Qaeda in Iraq was beaten by George Bush. Obama plans to organize the Sunni Arabs to fight ISIS.
