    Almost 55 months after confessing felonious conduct, Teamster money-laundering scandal figure, Jere Nash, has finally been sentenced. U.S. Dist. Judge Thomas P. Griesa (S.D.N.Y., Nixon) sentenced Nash Apr. 9 to a mere two years probation for his role in a series of schemes which lead to the embezzlement of some $885,000 from the Int'l Bhd. of Teamsters' treasury and to $538,100 in illegal campaign contributions to the failed reelection campaign of expelled IBT president Ron Carey. The sentencing appears to have been hush hush: the four N.Y.C. major dailies and the two Washington, D.C., dailies apparently did not cover the...
  • Russian media: U.S. 'economic apocalypse' in September Alignment of 'ominous events' prompts frenzy

    Friday’s American stock market provided further evidence of instability in the nation’s economy, and even as financiers fear a possible fiscal disaster in September, there has been little coverage among U.S. media. But the state-run media of Russia is warning of what it calls America’s “economic apocalypse.” The Russian news service Sputnik, an agency launched by Russia’s state-owned Rossiya Segodnya in 2014 to “target global audiences with its non-mainstream take on world events,” predicts doom for the American economy next month. In a recent article, Sputnik cites several economists warning of catastrophe. It continues: “Most of the experts agree...

    Minneapolis — Burdened by sagging poll numbers, hamstrung by poor economic news, and trapped in Washington for much of the summer because of the debt ceiling fight, President Obama will seek to reverse his recent fortunes by hitting the open road. Obama Monday will embark on a three-state, five-town bus tour deep in the heart of the American Midwest. The campaign-style swing comes at a time when a new Gallup Poll shows the president sliding below a 40 % approval rating for the first time. The White House maintains the president will confine his remarks to the economy and will...

    WASHINGTON (AFP) – President Barack Obama this week takes his 2012 reelection bid cross-country, to the airwaves and to Facebook, pushing a prescription for long-term US fiscal health that includes tax hikes on the richest Americans. Obama, whose audacious 2008 White House bid leaned heavily on social networking sites, will hype his "Shared Responsibility and Shared Prosperity" plan at Facebook's Palo Alto, California headquarters on Wednesday. "I hope you'll take a break from either friending or defriending each other to RSVP at," he joked in a video posted online Monday. The US president's campaign-style blitz came as Republicans redoubled...

    WASHINGTON (AFP) – The rarely-shuttered US government closed down for a second day Tuesday, as the northeast braced for another massive snow blitz just days after a historic blizzard paralyzed the region. Schools in the Washington area were shut and thousands of homes were without power after a massive snowfall barreled across the area Friday and Saturday, leaving some areas entombed in as much as three feet (one meter) of snow. Forecasters said residents now face another wintry onslaught, with another 10 to 20 inches (25 to 50 centimeters) of snow forecast to fall on Tuesday and Wednesday. Unlike the...

    BAGHDAD, Jan. 22, 2008 – Thousands of pounds of bombs rained down near the village of Arab Jabour on Jan. 20 as coalition forces continued their relentless pursuit of al Qaeda. A military commander in the region said the drop was designed to eliminate al Qaeda’s tactical advantage before coalition ground forces move in to clear the heavily agricultural community southeast of Baghdad. Army Col. Terry Ferrell, commander of 3rd Infantry Division’s 2nd Brigade Combat Team, with responsibility for the Arab Jabour portion of Multinational Division Center, said in an interview that the improvised explosive devices targeted by the bombing...

    Two talk-radio hosts in New Jersey say they are worried about their own safety and that of their families after the head of the New Jersey State Police union threatened to make their home addresses and license tags public. During a profanity-laced tirade on Thursday, State Police Union leader David Jones blasted Craig Carton and Ray Rossi, the hosts of WKXW-FM's "Jersey Guys" program, for discussing an alleged State Police "ticket-writing blitz" on the air. Information about the stepped-up ticket-writing campaign came from anonymous postings on a police union website. State troopers, upset about criticism directed at them following Gov....

    Bin Laden 'back in control' of terror blitz By Isambard Wilkinson in Islamabad Last Updated: 2:12am GMT 20/02/2007 Osama bin Laden has re-established control over a terrorist network along the Pakistan and Afghan border, according to US sources. American security officials claim that bin Laden and his deputy, Ayman al-Zawahiri, have rebuilt an operations hub in the mountainous Pakistani tribal area of North Waziristan. "The chain of command has been re-established," The New York Times reported one US government official as saying. The official added that the al-Qa'eda "leadership command and control is robust". Until recently, the US government had...

    Things are quiet and peaceful in small-town Jericho, Kansas, but when a baffling explosion occurs in the distance, Jericho's residents are plunged into social, psychological and physical chaos. No one knows what to think, and fear of the unknown takes over the town, especially because its isolation cuts it off from outside help. When nearly everything they know seems gone, will the residents of JERICHO band together to face their unfamiliar and mysterious new world?

    Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has once again demonstrated how dishonest and hypocritical he is by his appearance at the recent Topanga fires here in Southern California. How could Schwarzenegger in good conscience force a group of firefighters to stand behind him in mock support while he simultaneously attacks firefighters' pensions, benefits and livelihoods? This act is the epitome of insult. His conduct in this case is particularly reprehensible considering that he recently rejected almost all of the recommendations put forward by a Fire Service Blue Ribbon Committee, a committee he commissioned, that was intended to improve public safety during urban interface...

Washington has made this position on the marines in Okinawa known to the Japanese side through bilateral talks including consultations over the realignment of U.S. troops and their bases in Japan, the sources said.

    NEW YORK - John Kerry's $50 million post-Labor Day advertising effort will start in seven states before expanding to an additional 13, creating a coast-to-coast presidential battleground map by Nov. 2. The Democrat's commercials begin airing Friday in Ohio, then next week in Florida, Iowa, New Mexico, Pennsylvania, New Hampshire and Wisconsin, according to Democratic officials familiar with the buy. In an unusual strategy, the campaign was reserving airtime over the entire two-month period until the election. The rest of the states — Minnesota, Missouri, Nevada, Oregon, Washington, Maine, Michigan, Arizona, Louisiana, Colorado, Arkansas and North Carolina and West Virginia...

    WASHINGTON (AFP) - The United States and India should jointly spearhead a global anti-nuclear proliferation campaign, US Senator Hillary Clinton (news - web sites) said as she launched a senate group to strengthen ties between the world's two largest democracies. She said the offensive was crucial to stop North Korea (news - web sites) and other rogue states from using the nuclear card to terrorise the world.

    MONTREAL (AP) -- Blitz, the Montreal Alouettes' mascot, received a reprieve - and a stern reprimand - after being given a penalty for pecking an official during a Canadian Football League game. Alouettes head coach Don Matthews wanted the bird mascot cut after drawing a 15-yard penalty for knocking an official on the head during Montreal's 30-10 victory over the Ottawa Renegades on Sunday. Team spokesman Louis-Philippe Dorais said Monday the mascot will keep his job, but will be confined to the sidelines. He didn't reveal the identity of the person in the costume. "He's been given a warning, but...
  • Why Bush Backs Blitz On Hamas

    Why Bush backs a blitz on Hamas June 13 2003 at 10:37AM The White House squarely blamed resurgent Middle East violence on the extremist group Hamas, as American diplomats scrambled to salvage the tattered road map to Israeli-Palestinian peace. The administration also signalled support for a crackdown on Hamas after reviewing Israeli intelligence and criticism from pro-Israeli groups, those involved in the talks said on Thursday. Israel drew a stern public rebuke from President George Bush after Tuesday's helicopter strike on Palestinian militant leader Abdel-Aziz al-Rantissi. That sparked a backlash from Israel's supporters in the United States, who defended its...
