  • Americans Have a Civic Duty To Vote Intelligently

    Many recent surveys indicate that the vast majority of Americans feel our country is moving in the wrong direction. This country was intentionally designed to be different from others in which a monarch or strong central government controlled almost every aspect of the lives of its citizens. In most other nations, the lives of the populace conform to the will of the government. In America, the government is supposed to conform to the will of the people. Also in most other countries, it was declared that the rights of the people were conferred by the government; whereas, our founding documents...

    An unusual respiratory virus has sickened more than 400 children across the United States, and the emergence of sudden paralysis in some Colorado youths is sparking concern among doctors. The nationwide outbreak of enterovirus D68 -- which can cause wheezing and coughing -- coincided with the hospitalization of nine children due to limb weakness in Colorado since early August, and officials are investigating if there is any link between the two.

    The man with the first case of Ebola diagnosed in the U.S. went to hospital feeling sick only to be given antibiotics and be sent home. It was not until two days later that the man was admitted to the Dallas hospital and put in isolation, it has been reported. It raises the frightening prospect that he was mixing freely with other people for a full two days while showing symptoms of the virus - the time when Ebola is most contagious. The unidentified patient has been in isolation

    WHEN Malcolm X visited Mecca in 1964, he was enchanted. He found the city “as ancient as time itself,” and wrote that the partly constructed extension to the Sacred Mosque “will surpass the architectural beauty of India’s Taj Mahal.” Fifty years on, no one could possibly describe Mecca as ancient, or associate beauty with Islam’s holiest city. Pilgrims performing the hajj this week will search in vain for Mecca’s history. The dominant architectural site in the city is not the Sacred Mosque, where the Kaaba, the symbolic focus of Muslims everywhere, is. It is the obnoxious Makkah Royal Clock Tower...

  • Eurofighter has manufacturing fault: Germany

    10/01/2014 6:14:31 AM PDT · by sukhoi-30mki
    (MENAFN - AFP) A manufacturing fault has been discovered in the Eurofighter Typhoon warplanes, Germany said Tuesday, announcing it was suspending deliveries of the sophisticated jets. The news was another blow to the troubled and costly Eurofighter programme -- and raised concerns over the use of the planes. According to Germany's defence ministry, the defect discovered was in the rear fuselage of the twin-engine multirole fighter. As a result, Berlin has decided to cut the time its Eurofighters spend in the air each year in half, from 3,000 hours to 1,500 hours. The news website Spiegel Online reported that, in...

    Acknowledging “there’s a lot more work to be done,” Police Supt. Garry McCarthy said the number of murders so far this year in Chicago is at the lowest level since 1965. However, the number of shootings and shooting victims was up compared to last year. McCarthy said the 298 murders in Chicago through the end of September was also the first time since 1965 the city has had fewer than 300 murders in the first nine months of the year. The superintendent said there were 22 fewer murders in the first three quarters of 2014 than the same time frame...

The Pentagon, State Department and Department of Homeland Security would like this story to be over and done. (Just like they wanted the White House "fence-jumper" story to be buried. But then we found out he didn't just jump the fence; he also overpowered a Secret Service agent, burst through the halls and invaded the East Room wielding a knife.) Here are my nagging questions about another hushed-up national...

    DALLAS (AP) — The first case of Ebola diagnosed in the U.S. has been confirmed in a man who recently traveled from Liberia to Dallas, sending chills through the area's West African community whose leaders urged caution to prevent spreading the virus. The unidentified man was critically ill and has been in isolation at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital since Sunday, federal health officials said Tuesday. They would not reveal his nationality or age. Authorities have begun tracking down family, friends and anyone else who may have come in close contact with him and could be at risk. Officials said there...

    ... After the first patient — a dying Liberian-American — flew into Lagos on July 20, Ebola spread to 20 other people there and in a smaller city, Port Harcourt. They have all now died or recovered, and the cure rate — 60 percent — was unusually high for an African outbreak. Meanwhile, local health workers paid 18,500 face-to-face visits to repeatedly take the temperatures of nearly 900 people who had contact with them. The last confirmed case was detected on Aug. 31, and virtually all contacts have passed the 21-day incubation period without falling ill.

Pierson started her testimony by saying she "takes full responsibility" for the failures, especially the most recent incident of fence jumper Omar Gonzales making it all the way inside the White House, but failed to answer a number of questions. Republican Congressman Trey Gowdy questioned Pierson on a shooting incident that occurred at the White House in 2011. Pierson failed to provide adequate answers as to why that incident was first classified as simply...

    A prominent animal-rights charity is not a friend of the furry kingdom. Americans love animals, even cats. Eight million stray dogs and cats find their way into animal shelters every year, and the lucky ones are adopted into a warm home with a loving family. Shelters are operated by small charities usually called “humane societies,” whose good deeds are funded by private generosity. The Humane Society of the United States trades on the good of others to finance a radical agenda. In May, the Humane Society and a handful of other radical animal-rights groups had to write a $15.8 million...

"Since 1996, black unemployment has doubled and the poverty rate for blacks has skyrocketed. Mary hasn't helped us all," says Guillory. "So on November 4, let's send her back home to her father's house or to her mansion in Washington, D.C., or wherever the heck she lives." The Republican pol doesn't mince words as he argues that blacks are "just a vote" to Landrieu and Democrats. Watch the video below:

There was palpable friction among members of the Morning Joe team today on the question of whether Secret Service Director Julia Pierson was an affirmative action hire. By the end, the almost unfailingly affable Willie Geist was smirking in frustration at Mika Brzezinski. When Brzezinski first broached the sensitive-for-liberals subject, she suggested that she was going to go further than her male colleagues dared. But by the time she circled back to the topic, Mika had for some reason lost her nerve. She was suddenly so cautious that Donny Deutsch chided her for...

    It seems counter-intuitive and more than a little greedy to spend tens of thousands of dollars building green energy facilities so you can live off the grid and then fight the power company because they aren’t paying you for the extra power you give back to the grid. Let’s have our cake and eat it, too. Most people invest in solar panels and wind energy to relieve themselves of the burden and insecurity of depending on the giant energy grid most of us depend upon. And it is a dependable grid.

    A new poll finds that three-fifths of likely voters support the repeal of Obamacare. A large plurality — 44 percent — wants to see Obamacare repealed replaced with a conservative alternative. A much smaller group —16 percent — wants to see it repealed but not replaced. Less than one in three respondents — 32 percent — would like to keep Obamacare, whether in its current form or in amended form. So, with a conservative alternative in play, 60 percent of Americans support repeal, while only 32 percent oppose it.

According to Molotsov, Russia can independently go ahead with the necessary drilling in the Kara Sea in 2015 with the help of drilling platforms owned by Russian companies. Russia’s largest oil company, Rosneft has opened a large deposit of oil and gas in the area. "In total, we have about eight units of 100 percent Russian-owned platforms,” the deputy energy minister said. In the event Exxon leaves, work in the Arctic will continue,...

    ...By all logic, we should be working to sustain the boom. We aren’t, and therein lies a classic example of how good policy is held hostage to bad politics and public relations. What would promote continued exploration is a lifting of the current U.S. ban on exporting crude oil. Let producers sell into the world market. But that seems (wrongly) an unjustified giveaway to industry. The public perceptions are atrocious. Hardly anyone expected the oil boom, with some notable exceptions — prominently Harold Hamm, who pioneered North Dakota’s Bakken field. “Fracking” (the injection of pressurized water into fields to make...

    The information leaked by Edward Snowden last year raised the public consciousness quite a bit about user privacy and security in using certain services (not to mention the hope that companies won’t be that willing to acquiesce to government requests for user information). In recent weeks, Apple CEO Tim Cook has been emphasizing a new focus on user security and encryption. Both Apple and Google have implemented stronger data encryption so it’s harder to compromise user data. The problem is, however, that it would be harder for law enforcement to access that data too.

    After Kansas City Chiefs safety Husain Abdullah was penalized for "going to the ground" and engaging in an Islamic prayer after returning a Tom Brady interception for a touchdown on Monday Night Football, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) pressured the NFL to "clarify its policies" on "unsportsmanlike conduct" penalties.
  • Obama vs CIA, Who Is Telling The Truth?

    10/01/2014 4:43:38 AM PDT · by LeoMcNeil · 21 replies
    President Obama blamed America’s intelligence agencies for failing to properly access the dangers of a rising ISIS. In leaked reports, the CIA has released information suggesting that Obama was warned about ISIS increasing in strength as early as before the 2012 election. Other information leaked in the past few days suggest the President doesn’t bother attending more than half of his intelligence briefings. The public is stuck deciding who is telling the truth here because someone must be lying. Either the President was warned and made the decision not to confront ISIS while they were still weak or our intelligence...

    Glenn Beck presented a theory Tuesday about why the United States bombed targets from the Khorasan group last week, saying it’s possible that the United States did it to help prop up the Iranian government in return for increased cooperation from Iran’s leaders. “It is a theory, but remember, my theory was that you were being lied to in great detail on Benghazi,” Beck said on his television program. “I think this is going to fall in the same thing. I have an answer that nobody else does. [But] I want you to know again, it is a theory.” Beck...

    ".....Why wasn’t the White House, which knew for months that Eric H. Holder Jr. was itching to leave, ready to roll with a successor? More important, given Holder’s foot inching toward the door, why did it not time this departure more intelligently — rather than having it arrive just before an election and the prospect of Democrats losing control of the Senate? Once again, this being baseball playoff season, can’t anybody here play this game? After six years, apparently not. These questions matter not because of what they tell us about the Holder situation but because of what they say...

    A top Boeing official criticized Congress on Tuesday for failing to pass a long-term reauthorization of the Export-Import Bank. He also argued that an extension of the Bank’s charter until next summer leaves supporters in a worse position than they were in before. “Mostly far-right political consultants, think tanks and congressmen banded together in a fit of ideological road rage to kill the bank,” Boeing senior vice president Timothy Keating said in prepared remarks at an aerospace conference in Everett, Wash. “The temporary extension recently enacted in many respects leaves us worse off than before,” Keating continued. “The extension is...

    p>Government beneficence is mostly a myth based on the following assumptions: It is necessary.It is good.It makes outcomes better than they otherwise would be. Point number one, the necessity of government, is true up to a point. There is arguably some limited set of functions that might better be performed jointly rather than separately. Extreme libertarians believe otherwise, suggesting there is virtually no role for government. Our Founders disagreed and provided for a quite limited role in the founding documents. The second two conditions, at least given what our government does today, are increasingly disputed by those who look at...

    Last week, President Obama spoke to the United Nations about the growing threat of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. In the course of that speech, he discussed a wide variety of threats to Western civilization, ranging from Ebola to global warming, from chaos in Syria to China’s incursions in the South China Sea. The speech seemed unfocused, meandering. But it held together thanks to one common thread: Barack Obama believes that words solve everything. Particularly his own.Obama’s narcissism isn’t mere arrogance. It’s messianism. It’s pure faith that his verbiage can alter the course of history. “We are here,”...

    Unlike his predecessor, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani does not talk of wiping Israel off the map or claim that homosexuality does not exist in the Islamic Republic of Iran. Yet, what he told the world from the podium of the UN General Assembly last week, and in an interview with CNN during his stay US stay, was no less shameless and false than the outrageous comments of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the man who occupied the Iranian presidency just before. Since his election in June last year, Iranians and the world have watched Rouhani with cautious optimism. They have been waiting to...

    Two Taliban suicide bombers hit army buses in Kabul on Wednesday with initial reports of six people killed in the twin attack, police said, one day after the new Afghan government signed a deal for U.S. troops to stay in the country. The Taliban, who strongly opposed the U.S. agreement, claimed responsibility for the two early-morning attacks on vehicles carrying military employees to work in the capital. “There have been two suicide attacks targeting buses carrying Afghan national army personnel,” Farid Afzali, chief of the city’s police investigation department, told AFP. “Initial reports say six military people and civilians were...
