    Full title: Ret. Navy Commander: Gitmo Has Not Led to Terror Recruiting Anymore Than a Movie Caused Benghazi Attack Commander Kirk Lippold, retired from the U.S. Navy, testified in front of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on Tuesday, insisting that Guantanamo Bay remain open for business. “Keeping Guantanamo open is more important now than ever,” Lippold warned. The terror detention facility, which has held almost 800 terrorist detainees since 2002 and today holds only 80, has been targeted for closure by President Obama, who argues the prison is “contrary to our values.” Other social activists have demanded the...

  • Despite threats, Obama can’t close Guantanamo through executive action

    Leaders in Congress and the U.S. attorney general say President Obama simply doesn't have legal authority to close the Guantanamo Bay detention facility through executive action, but that fact didn't stop a supremely confident president last week from threatening to act on his own if lawmakers won't cooperate. At a year-end press conference on Friday -- the same day Mr. Obama signed a massive spending bill that seems to prohibit him from closing Guantanamo on his own -- the president said he will explore the limits of his executive power if the House and Senate don't pass legislation to shutter...

    As Tim Hortons attempts to expand in the US, it is facing the harsh reality that Americans might not be as committed to the coffee chain as cultish Canadian customers. On Wednesday and Thursday, more than 20 Tim Hortons locations abruptly closed in Maine, New York City, and upstate New York. Local news stations reported that employees didn't receive much advance notice, with a one employee telling Syracuse.com that the company showed “no respect” for employees, with the surprise layoffs on the cusp of the holiday season. Employees were further infuriated because they reported that many of the closed locations...

    Approximately 27,000 Tennesseans who had coverage through the Tennessee Community Health Alliance will be receiving cancelation notices soon. Just yesterday, the CHA announced that it had entered a voluntary state-approved runoff and will no longer offer insurance plans in 2016. This decision comes just weeks away from the next Obamacare Open Enrollment period beginning on November 1, 2015. Policyholders who continue to pay their premiums will keep their coverage through December 31, 2015, but will be forced to choose a new plan from the four remaining carriers participating in the state’s Exchange. “This was not a decision that the Department...

    The House rebuffed a proposal Thursday to close the Guantanamo Bay detention facility by the end of 2017. An amendment to the annual national defense authorization that would provide a framework for closing the prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, failed on a vote of 174-249. Rep. Adam Smith (D-Wash.), the top Democrat on the House Armed Services Committee and author of the amendment, called the facility an "international eyesore." He noted that the U.S. already has prisons that can hold dangerous convicted terrorists. "We have the facilities. We have the ability to hold them safely here," Smith said. The legislation...

    WILMINGTON, Del. - (AP) -- Highway engineers say a crucial bridge on the Eastern Seaboard's interstate highway system could imperil drivers if traffic is allowed back on it. The bridge, near Wilmington, Delaware, was closed Monday when its support pillars were found to be tilting. The Interstate 495 bridge won't reopen anytime soon, highway officials said Tuesday, and the 90,000 vehicles that cross it every day are being diverted onto the main north highway, I-95, further overloading one of the most crowded arteries in America.

    As promised, the Drakes Bay Oyster Co. appealed to an expanded panel of a federal appeals court in San Francisco today to allow it to keep operating at Point Reyes National Seashore. The oyster farm and owner Kevin Lunny asked an 11-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to reconsider a decision in which a smaller panel of the court ruled against the company by a 2 to 1 vote in September. In that ruling, the smaller panel upheld a federal trial judge’s denial of a preliminary injunction that would have allowed the oyster harvesting to continue...

The lawyer for the Sheikha described the attacks of the MP as "absurd and offensive," as the foundation "Pro Oriente" reported on Friday, according to Kathpress.
