Donald Sterling´s petition denied
in latest legal tussle over Clippers

Los Angeles Times, by Nathan Fenno & Kim Christensen

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 8/9/2014 2:23:16 AM

An appeals court denied Donald Sterling´s petition late Friday to stay last month´s probate court ruling against him, the latest round of legal wrangling over the proposed $2-billion sale of the Clippers to Steve Ballmer. The ruling capped a confused and hectic 24 hours that left all parties back where they started. Sterling´s attorneys face a Wednesday deadline to file their objections to the probate court´s ruling and presumably take the case to the appeals court again. (Snip) The order would allow the sale of the franchise to proceed, regardless of an appeal by Donald Sterling. After Levanas signed the final statement of decision in the

Comments:
Somehow, this sale at this time seems wrong.

Who benefits?
Private conversation in one´s home taped illegally should not be used to take a persons property.
Sterling should go scorched earth on the other owners.
Hypocrisy.
Hitler´s henchman bought Jewish property for pennies on the dollar.
Whoever wants this team knows he would not voluntarily sell.
Who set him up?

Federal investigators are focused on one Ferguson, Mo., police officer who fatally shot an unarmed black teenager, but at least five other police officers and one former officer in the town’s 53-member department have been named in civil rights lawsuits alleging the use of excessive force. In four federal lawsuits, including one that is on appeal, and more than a half-dozen investigations over the past decade, colleagues of Darren Wilson’s have separately contested a variety of allegations, including killing a mentally ill man with a Taser, pistol-whipping a child, choking and hog-tying a child and beating a man who was

Iran´s possible response to new U.S. sanctions could "not be pleasant", its foreign minister said on Sunday, raising the prospect of t*t-for-tat retribution against the Islamic Republic´s old adversary weeks ahead of fresh nuclear talks. Iranian leaders reacted with dismay to Friday´s announcement that Washington was going to penalize a number of Iranian and other foreign companies, banks and airlines for violating sanctions against Tehran, most of which are tied to a decade-old dispute about its nuclear program. Washington said the moves were a signal that there would be no let-up of sanctions while international talks were underway to ease the

The IDF shot down a drone that entered Israeli air space from Syria on Sunday. The air force fired a surface to air Patriot missile to intercept the drone, which had come from the Quneitra region in Syria, adjacent to the Israeli border. "The IDF will not tolerate a breach of the State of Israel´s sovereignty," the army said. The incident came after an Israeli drone was reportedly downed in Iraq last week – the third time an unmanned aerial vehicle was shot out of the sky in the past month. According to the Arab-language Al-Mayadeen television network, the Hermes Model drone was shot down near Baghdad Airport.

Putin calls for talks on
´statehood´ for eastern Ukraine
Agence France-Presse, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 8/31/2014 8:42:46 AM     Post Reply
Moscow - President Vladimir Putin on Sunday dramatically raised the stakes in the Ukraine conflict by calling for the first time for statehood to be considered for the restive east of the former Soviet state. "We need to immediately begin substantive talks ... on questions of the political organisation of society and statehood for southeastern Ukraine with the goal of protecting the lawful interests of the people who live there," Putin was quoted as saying by Russian news agencies on a TV show broadcast in the far east of the country. Russia has previously only called for greater rights under a decentralised federal system to be accorded

As Russian troops and armored columns advance in Eastern Ukraine, the Ukrainian government begs for aid from the free world it hoped would receive it and protect it as one of its own. The leaders of the free world, meanwhile, are struggling to find the right terminology to free themselves from the moral responsibility to provide that protection. (Snip) This vocabulary of cowardice emanating from Berlin and Washington today is as disgraceful as the black-is-white propaganda produced by Putin’s regime, and even more dangerous. Moscow’s smokescreens are hardly necessary in the face of so much willful blindness. Putin’s lies are

Dallas, Republican Sen. Ted Cruz sounds increasingly like he´s made up his mind to run for president in 2016, telling an influential gathering of conservative activists Saturday that "we are part of a grassroots fire that is sweeping this country." (Snip) "I figured out the only way there is a chance in heaven he might come, I´m inviting him to come to a golf course," Cruz said. Cruz offered a way to deal with Islamic State militants in Iraq. "ISIS says they want to go back and reject modernity," he said. "Well, I think we should help them. We ought to bomb them back to the stone age."

Breitbart News spoke Friday with Anthony Cordesman, the Arleigh A. Burke chair in strategy at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, about the Islamic State´s rapid advances throughout the Middle East and how America and the Western world should concretely respond. Dr. Cordesman has served in high-ranking positions in the State Department, the Department of Energy, and NATO, as well as director of intelligence assessment in the office of the Secretary of Defense.

Brussels - European Union leaders on Sunday gave Russia a week to reverse course in Ukraine or face a new round of sanctions as Kiev warned it was on the brink of "full-scale war" with Moscow. Fears are growing that the confrontation on the EU´s eastern borders could engulf the whole continent after Russia sent troops to back a new offensive by pro-Kremlin rebels in southeastern Ukraine. EU President Herman Van Rompuy said the 28 leaders meeting in Brussels agreed to take "further significant steps" if Moscow did not back down. The European Commission, the EU's executive arm, has been ordered to produce options for new

Cairo - An Egyptian court sentenced Mohamed Badie, general guide of the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood, and seven others to life in prison on Saturday for inciting violence during protests last year, judicial sources said. Badie had already been sentenced to death and received a life sentence in other cases, part of Cairo´s toughest crackdown - widely criticised by human rights groups - on the country´s oldest and most organised Islamist movement. The judge, Mohamed Nagi Shehata, also sentenced six other defendants to death in absentia. Badie was charged with killing at least nine people and inciting violence that injured 21 others in

The Secret Service is investigating a possible threat made against President Obama. Authorities tell NBC News that there was a “potentially suspicious person and vehicle” near where Obama made fundraising stops tonight. Connecticut police have been informed of the report by the Secret Service, as well as being advised to be on lookout for this suspicious person. State law enforcement is currently looking for the car this person was driving, which they believe to be a blue Jetta with Connecticut plates.

During the Great Depression, the Communist scribes at the Daily Worker were forever assuring the more skeptical among their colleagues that the heroic spark was near. Having read about a “small riot somewhere in rural Minnesota,” Whittaker Chambers recorded in Witness, Robert Minor started shouting about “the beginning of the American revolution.” If the paper wished to capitalize upon dissatisfaction and spin it into insurrection and change, Minor proposed, it would need the staff to keep an eye out for the tell-tale sign and, then, to “play it up big.” Over the past month, the events in Ferguson, Mo., have played

It´s not been a great summer for President Barack Obama. Disgraced for hitting the golf course amid crucial ISIS talks, struggling with record-low approval ratings; and now, lambasted for wearing a silly suit. But let´s put things into perspective. It´s not Obama´s first dodgy outfit choice, nor the worst in the history of the White House.

The federal government is still seeking answers as to why the majority of lesbians are obese and U.S. taxpayers are footing the bill, which now totals $2.87 million. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) study is now in its fourth year, receiving an additional $670,567 for fiscal year 2014. The project seeks to determine why “nearly three-quarters of adult lesbians overweight or obese,” and why gay males are not. In just two years the project’s budget has nearly doubled, growing from $1.5 million to nearly $3 million today, despite fears that sequestration could jeopardize the project and other NIH funding.

Watching the events unfold in Ferguson, Missouri, I can’t help thinking about the Holocaust and post-war Germany. As the daughter of a Holocaust survivor, I’ve spent years watching Germany wrestle with its dark past. It’s just one of many places that have made efforts to understand and compensate for a difficult history: For nearly three decades, countries as varied as South Africa, Rwanda, and the nations of Latin America and post-Communist Eastern Europe have been engaged in this process, often called “transitional justice.” That’s a broad term for the ways in which societies deal with the legacies of past injustice.

ISIS is a cancer that must be stamped out, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry wrote Saturday in an opinion piece for The New York Times. Kerry called the Islamist extremist group, known for beheadings, crucifixions and terror campaigns against religious and ethnic minorities, a "unifying threat to a broad array of countries" that needs to be confronted. His article appears in the aftermath of the political uproar that engulfed the White House this week after President Barack Obama said "we don´t have a strategy" on ISIS in Syria.

It will take two decades to rebuild the thousands of houses destroyed during Israel’s assault on Gaza, according to a recent NGO report. At least 17,000 homes were obliterated or severely damaged during the conflict, with thousands more needing substantial repairs, according to an assessment by Shelter Cluster. More than 2,100 Palestinians, most of them civilians, were killed during the conflict. In addition 71 Israelis were killed – all but six of them soldiers. But the report on Gaza’s housing stock indicates inhabitants of the densely populated strip will face a severe infrastructural burden over the coming years.

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama is interrupting a weekend trip to return to the White House. White House spokesman Josh Earnest said Obama changed his plans for Friday and will return to Washington late in the evening after fundraisers in New York and Rhode Island, instead of overnighting in New York as originally planned. Earnest said Obama himself made the decision to return to the White House and that it was unrelated to any current events.

The St. Louis Rams released defensive end Michael Sam on Saturday, the team announced. Sam´s efforts to become the first openly gay player in NFL history came up just short in a competition against undrafted rookie Ethan Westbrooks. Sam had a team-high six tackles in the Rams´ final preseason game but didn´t make the 53-man roster. Westbrooks is one of nine defensive linemen to land a roster spot. Sam officially hit waivers Saturday at 4 p.m. ET when all NFL teams had to trim their rosters down to the league-mandated 53 players. From there, the other 31 teams will have

NEW YORK — Chelsea Clinton said Friday she is quitting her job as a reporter at NBC News, citing increased work at the Clinton Foundation and the imminent birth of her first child. Bill and Hillary Rodham Clinton´s daughter had been working at the network since 2011, sporadically doing feature stories on people or organizations doing public-spirited work.

Earlier today, the British government raised its terror threat level to “severe,” suggesting a very likely terrorist attack by ISIS on British soil. In response, U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson issued a statement saying the government is unaware of any “credible threat” on U.S. soil from ISIS. Johnson says, “At present, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the FBI are unaware of any specific, credible threat to the U.S. homeland from ISIL.” He does go on to acknowledge that they have the “intent and capability to target American citizens overseas,” and naturally they’re still “an active and serious threat within
