    Pictured: Refugees arriving at Turkish border. ANKARA, Turkey – Turkish security forces fired tear gas and water cannon at hundreds of Kurds gathered in solidarity for a third day on the Turkish side of a border crossing with Syria on Sunday, as some 70,000 Syrian Kurds were reported to have fled across the border in just two days to escape Islamic State (IS) militants. Refugees who had waited days for permission to cross the border to safety complained of suffering, disease and death. “We have been here for four days without water and food,” said Fidan Mohammad, one of...

    Washington (AFP) - The rise of the brutal Islamic State group can partly be blamed on President Barack Obama's failure to arm moderate Syrian rebels far earlier, said former US defense secretary Leon Panetta. It comes after the United States Congress on Thursday passed Obama's plan to train and arm moderate Syrian rebels to battle Islamic State jihadists, a key plank of his strategy to smash the militants who have overrun vast areas of Iraq and Syria. Panetta told CBS's "60 Minutes" news program in an interview aired Sunday that he and then secretary of state Hillary Clinton had urged...

    The Washington Post ^ | September 20, 2014 | Dan Balz, Chief correspondent
    AUSTIN Twenty years ago this November, Texas elected George P. Bushs uncle as governor. That election cemented Republicans in power in the Lone Star State after a steady period of ascendance. Democrats havent won a statewide elective office since and their candidates for governor (state Sen. Wendy Davis) and lieutenant governor (state Sen. Leticia Van de Putte) are currently seen here in Texas as underdogs this fall. In the two decades since George W. Bush became governor, the Republican Party here has turned several shades redder. Texas might qualify now as the epicenter of the conservative movement across the...

    Focus on police bias obscures meaningful debate on structural racism that perpetuates racial injustice and inequality. In the wake of the death of Michael Brown, the unarmed teenager shot by police officer Darren Wilson in Ferguson, Missouri, on Aug. 9, the public has heard quite a bit about the town, its residents and their supposed violence. But about half an hour drive west of Ferguson, along a highway straddling the Missouri River, you will come to what may seem a planet away: St. Charles County. St. Charles is a Whitopia a predominantly white county that has posted 6 percent...

    Intelligence agencies around the world typically regard Chinas approach to spying as sloppy and unprofessional. While many other countries focus on stealth and finesse for espionage, Chinas focus is on mass numbers. While regarded as unprofessional, Chinas approach has also been extremely effective. The challenge posed by China comes down to a simple fact: it has too many spies for foreign intelligence agencies to keep track of. Our nation is overwhelmed. The problem is too big, said Paul Williams in a phone interview.

    NEW YORK - Over three hundred thousand activists walked through Manhattan on Sunday, warning that climate change is destroying the Earth - in stride with demonstrators around the world who urged policymakers to take quick action. Starting along Central Park West, most came on foot, others with bicycles and walkers, and some even in wheelchairs. Many wore costumes and marched to drumbeats. One woman played the accordion. But their message was not entertaining: "We're going to lose our planet in the next generation if things continue this way," said Bert Garskof, 81, as a family member pushed his wheelchair through...

Clinton met with Alinsky several times in 1968 while writing a Wellesley college thesis about his theory of community organizing. Clintons relationship with Alinsky, and her support for his philosophy, continued for several years after she entered Yale law school in 1969, two letters obtained by the Washington Free Beacon show.

    The next time you visit a hospital, it is your wallet that may end up hurting the most. All over the United States, it has become common practice for hospitals to wildly inflate medical bills. For example, it has been reported that some hospitals are charging up to 30 dollars for a single aspirin pill. And as you will see below, some victims report being billed tens of thousands of dollars for a non-surgical hospital visit that lasts only a few hours. When something is seriously wrong with us, most of us never stop to ask our health professionals how...

    Rape is a vicious crime, one that disproportionately affects poor women and incarcerated men, but Barack Obama knows his voters, and so his recent remarks on the subject were focused not on penitentiaries, broken families, or Indian reservations but on college campuses, where the despicable crime is bound up in a broader feminist Kulturkampf only tangentially related to the very real problem of sexual violence against women. The subject is a maddening one. President Obama repeated the endlessly reiterated but thoroughly debunked claim that one in five women will be sexually assaulted in her college years. The actual rate is...

    Tyler Durden 09/21/2014 Just two short months ago, Goldman Sachs was exuberant over the 'expansion' signals that the firm's Global Leading Indicator Swirlogram was exhibiting as it confirmed their 'economists' expectations that the Keynesian hockey-stick of hope would once again re-appear majestically in H2 2014 and lift America (and the world) to escape velocity. That dream is over. Confirming the collapse of world GDP expectations, Goldman's GLI has plunged into 'slowdown' with momentum starting to slow. Perhaps, just perhaps, as we noted previously, this time is not different and the annual cycle of extrapolating early-year hope is rapidly turning to...
  • The swarm of attack ads claiming $500 million in North Carolina education cuts

    Notice a theme? In the hard-fought North Carolina Senate race, just about every ad from a Democratic outside organization repeats the same talking point that the GOP candidate, Thom Tillis, as speaker of the North Carolina House, presided over a $500 million cut in education funding. Tilliss opponent, Sen. Kay Hagan (D), also raised it in a political debate. In June, we first looked at this issue, when yet another outside group, Emilys List, ran a similar attack ad. The Emilys List ad, as well as two of these new ads, pair the $500 million allegation with the bogus claim...

    Americans radicalized by online propaganda from Islamic State and other militant groups pose the main terrorist threat to the United States, which is especially vulnerable to foreign fighters returning from Syria, senior U.S. security officials said on Wednesday. While there is no evidence that the radical Islamist group plans an attack on U.S. soil, its vigorous propaganda machine and sophisticated online recruitment efforts created a clear potential threat, they said. A law enforcement bulletin obtained by FoxNews.com warned that Islamic State fighters have increased calls for 'lone wolves' to attack U.S. soldiers in America in recent months, citing one tweet...

    All of the most recent protests in Ferguson over the slaying of Michael Brown seem recent since the protestors have all asked for the same thing: That is to slap the cuffs on Darren Wilson, the officer who gunned down Brown on August 9. The reasons given for Wilson's freedom by some are that the prosecutors and cops almost never arrest and charge other cops with misconduct, the St. Louis County Prosecutor is a bigot, and there's no smoking gun piece of evidence to base an arrest on. These are all powerful blocks to clamping the cuffs on Wilson. But...

Over the past four years, employees have left DHS at a rate nearly twice as fast as in the federal government overall, and the trend is accelerating, according to a review of a federal database.

    JERUSALEM, Israel -- When ISIS leader Abu al-Bagdadi established a new caliphate this summer called the Islamic State, it sent shock waves through the Middle East. The so-called Islamic State became the first caliphate in nearly 100 years. When al-Bagdadi made his announcement, other Islamist groups, like al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood, condemned it. Regardless of the internal competition, the caliphate would be a dream come true in the Islamic world. "This dream holds together some kind of feeling that under the caliphate there is going to be a wonderful Islamic world," professor Moshe Sharon, an expert on Islam,...

    Middle Class Must Not Fail or All is Lost by Taylor Caldwell With the rise of the Industrial Civilization in the world, about 200 years ago, there also arose a social body which we know as the middle class. Before that, most of the world suffered under a feudal system in which the people were truly slaves of their governments in all things.

    Race has been in the news recently, as it should be more than it is. First the tragedy in Ferguson, Missouri captured everyones attention, and is still making news. Then a starkly racist email sent by Atlanta Hawks co-owner Bruce Levenson brought back the topic of race relations in the NBA where the owners are mostly white and the players black. And then this week psychologist Jennifer L. Eberhardt won a MacArthur genius award for her groundbreaking work on the powerful influence out-of-awareness racial attitudes have in the criminal justice system. Because her research can help us understand troubling news...

  • Dangerous Elegance: A History of High-Heeled Shoes

    The high-heeled shoe, or a shoe whose heel is higher than the toe, is a matter of contentious and heated discussion. Shoes in general have typically served as markers of gender, class, race, and ethnicity--and both the foot and the shoe have been imbued with powerful phallic and fertility symbols as evidenced in the contemporary practice of tying shoes to a newlywed couples car. No other shoe, however, has gestured toward leisure, sexuality, and sophistication as much as the high-heeled shoe. Fraught with contradiction, heels paradoxically inhibit movement in order to increase it, at least in appearance. Standing in heels,...

    Amd I the only one who remembers "Commander In Chief" in -- get this -- 2005/6 when the election was ramping up? Hollywood wanted hitlery in since they didn't see obozo coming? But of course obozo already HAD TV in the bag, since in 2008 people really thought they were voting for "24's" David Palmer. Then they voted again in 2012 b/c they could not admit to themselves they were wrong. Now, right at the start of the 2016 election cycle comes "Madame Secretary" featuring a smart-ass-wouldn't-we-like-all-cabinet-members-to-be-outspoken-like-that actress. Anyone who can't see this as ANOTHER attempt to run a TV...

    Via NRO, nothing says “slow news Friday” like a lazy post devoted to half-assed speculation. On the one hand, he’s an old Democrat with friends in the Democratic establishment. He might conceivably have heard something from a friend who’s heard something from someone who’s in a position to know. On the other hand, I haven’t seen a single other liberal in media anywhere say anything about an October surprise. What’s most likely? That Bob Beckel, Fox News liberal, is somehow more tapped in to the White House than MSNBC? That lots of other lefties in media know what he’s talking...

    In a 60 Minutes interview set to air Sunday night, former Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta says that President Obama should have left a residual force to continue the momentum America had going for itself in Iraq, and that he wasnt confident that pulling out was the right move for America: Panetta: We gave them a chance. I mean, no one could guarantee that Iraq would be able to go in the right direction, but we gave them a chance. We gave them the tools. Pelley: Back when you watched the stars and stripes being lowered for the last time...
