    September 21, 2016, 06:39 pm Obama: I curse more than I should By Jordan Fabian President Obama admitted in a new interview that the frustrations of being the leader of the free world sometimes get him to slip out of his no-drama persona. I curse more than I should, Obama told historian Doris Kearns Goodwin in an interview published in Vanity Fair. And I find myself cursing more in this office than I had in my previous life. The president said the one saving grace is that his top advisers use worse language than he does. Fortunately both my chief...
  • Wish Ba 'Av;Israel's National Day of Sorrow

    How hath the LORD covered the daughter of Zion with a cloud in his anger, and cast down from heaven unto the earth the beauty of Israel, and remembered not his footstool in the day of his anger! The LORD hath swallowed up all the habitations of Jacob, and hath not pitied: he hath thrown down in his wrath the strong holds of the daughter of Judah; he hath brought them down to the ground: he hath polluted the kingdom and the princes thereof. He hath cut off in his fierce anger all the horn of Israel: he hath drawn...

    Divine message? Natural disaster declared, Louvre artwork evacuated as River Seine hits 1982 record - same day as French initiative talks. In an ironic twist of fate, the same Friday that the international conference of the French initiative to force peace talks on Israel was launched in Paris, floodwaters in the capital city reached peak levels in what has been declared as a natural disaster. The River Seine in Paris is set to reach six meters (19 feet) above its normal levels on Friday, causing the prestigious Louvre and Orsay museums to close as staff anxiously rushes to move famous...

    Jamie Dimon is sounding the alarm on auto loans. "Auto is clearly a little stretched, in my opinion," the JPMorgan Chase (JPM) CEO said Thursday morning, speaking at the Alliance Bernstein Strategic Decisions Conference in New York. "Someone is going to get hurt... we don't do much of that." But other lenders have. The average size of new auto loans is rising, as is the average payment size, according to research from Experian released Thursday morning. In May, the total amount of auto loans cracked the $1 trillion mark for the first time, marking a 10 percent increase. It comes...

    The nation's capital is now under a blizzard watch, the first watch of its kind issued in advance of Winter Storm Jonas. Now is the time to prepare for Winter Storm Jonas, which is expected to kick into high gear Friday and pummel parts of the East through the weekend with heavy accumulations of snow and ice. Strong winds will likely add to the threat of power outages and may also bring serious coastal flooding along parts of the Atlantic coast. The National Weather Service issued the blizzard watch late Wednesday morning for Washington, D.C., and nearby Baltimore. The watch...

    Look out Trump! Latino kids born in the USA have got something to say as they hilariously let loose on Trump pounding his anti-Latino racism point-by-point like a piñata. Some will find what they say shocking (F-bombs ahead) but there's no denying the math that you can't win the White House without the brown vote.

    We are treating this as an act of domestic terrorism, said Bill Killian, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Tennessee. U.S. Attorney William C. Killian said. However, Killian said that the investigation would bear out precisely what kind of crime this was, and he cautioned people not to get caught up in the label. (Washington Post) How ironic that it is Bill Killian who was the most reluctant official to speak at todays press conference. William Killian is the Department of Justice official who vowed to criminalize social postings on Facebook and Twitter.

    ... The central conceit of It Follows, the excellent new horror film from director David Robert Mitchell, sounds eerie the first time you hear it, but it only gets more frightening every time you think about it. And the movie goes out of its way to give you reasons to think about just how horrifying it would be for this to play out in real life ... It Follows is a movie about a curse. While you're cursed, you will be stalked, mercilessly, by an entity that can take any form including that of someone you love and...

    JERUSALEM, Israel -- Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says he's under fire because he won't compromise the safety of Israel. "When there is pressure on Israel to give up on its security, the easiest thing is to give up," Arutz Sheva quoted Netanyahu's response at the Knesset. "As prime minister, I stand for the security of Israel," he continued. "The life of every single citizen and soldier matters to me, and I am not prepared to make comprises that will endanger our country." "Our interests are not on the minds of those who attack us -- or me -- personally,"...

    The United States administration is planning to throw Israel under the bus, Jewish Home chairman Naftali Bennett said on Tuesday night, responding to harsh words against Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu which were attributed to senior officials in the Obama administration. Israel is stronger than all those who curse it, said Bennett, after Jeffrey Goldberg of The Atlantic quoted officials in Washington as having described Netanyahu as chickens**t, among other things. The prime minister is not a private individual, but the leader of the Jewish State and the Jewish world as a whole. Serious curses such as these against the Israeli...

    Brazilian TV station dubs Stones frontman 'the biggest jinx in history' after he attended the match Mick Jagger has been blamed by a Brazilian TV station for Brazils record-breaking 7-1 World Cup semi-final defeat by Germany yesterday (July 8). Jagger has endured a six-game losing streak at the World Cup since 2010, by publicly endorsing countries who promptly lose. It even led to Brazil fans dressing cut-outs of The Rolling Stones singer in the colours of Chile and Colombia before their victories over those countries. But they lost when Jagger and his son Lucas attended the Germany game in Belo...

    Here in Holy Week we ponder the events that led to Jesus death and resurrection. Among the things to ponder is a dramatic moment in the trial before Pilate when the people who were present utter a curse upon themselves. We read of it in Matthews Gospel: When Pilate saw that he was getting nowhere, but that instead an uproar was starting, he took water and washed his hands in front of the crowd. I am innocent of this mans blood, he said. It is your responsibility! And all the people answered, His blood be on us and on our...

    A 1,700-year-old lead tablet with a violent curse inscribed upon it has been discovered by archaeologists in Jerusalem. Found in a wrecked Roman villa, the 'magical tablet' is thought to have been created by a magician. The curse, written in Greek, which calls for help from six gods to punish a man called Iennys, is believed to play a role in a bitter legal dispute and was ordered by a woman named Kyrilla...'While the words might be purely metaphorical, it seems more likely that Kyrilla actually used a hammer and nail(s) while carrying out a magical rite designed to enhance...

    Sorry for the vanity, but I couldn't resist. When the Cincinnati Reds took the field for their final three game series of the season with our Pittsburgh Pirates on Friday, I noticed they were wearing their "Los Rojos" jerseys. "WTF is up with that?", I asked my wife. I'd never seen them before. Or at least never noticed them before.Is this something to force Spanish on the country as a co-equal or superior national tongue? In Ohio? My wife, sweet person that she is, at first tried to ignore me. Just let me enjoy the game, she said. But I...

    People always throw out weird stuff surrounding their death ("When I die I want blah blah blah") but you rarely see people follow through on it. Not Scott E. Entsminger, a Browns fan who died at the age of 55 on July 4. Entsminger "was an accomplished musician, loved playing the guitar and was a member of the Old Fogies Band." He was also, per his obituary in the Columbus Dispatch, a "lifelong Cleveland Browns fan and season ticket holder." The deceased wasn't just your average Browns fan: He apparently wrote a song each year about the Browns, which he...
