  • A lose-lose choice for Hillary Clinton

    05/04/2015 2:30:40 AM PDT · by Din Maker · 1 replies
    The big threat to Hillary Clintonís campaign isnít coming from a competitor. Itís coming from an issue. And itís coming now, long before the first primary. Will she be for or against giving President Barack Obama fast-track authority to negotiate trade deals? Fast track gives a president the power to make trade deals that cannot be amended by Congress. All Congress can do is accept or reject the agreement. Other countries, say fast-track supporters, wonít negotiate with Washington if they know that Congress can amend any deal they agree to. Obamaís problem is with Democrats. They are horrified by the...

    OREM, Utah (AP) ó A shopper with a concealed weapons permit shot and killed a man who was trying to carjack a woman Saturday outside a Utah grocery store, officers said. The 31-year-old male shooter was in Macey's parking lot in Orem, 45 miles south of Salt Lake City, when he heard a woman's screams as she was being pulled from her SUV by the suspect, investigators said. The man told police he went to assist the woman, and the 27-year-old male suspect lunged at him in an attempt to grab his gun.

    MADISONóUnder Republican Gov. Scott Walker, Wisconsin has seen a nearly 12-fold increase in the number of people suspended annually from the stateís food stamp program for fraud.The suspensions for ďintentionally violating program rulesĒ are part of a larger get-tough approach to people receiving federally funded nutrition assistance, called FoodShare in Wisconsin. Walker has also introduced new work rules for some FoodShare recipients, and proposes to seek a federal waiver to begin requiring all adult participants of the program to undergo drug testing.In 2011, Walkerís first year as governor, 102 people were suspended from the FoodShare program for violating program rules,...

    When Wauwatosa parent Darnelle Kaishian first heard about the K-12 budget cut in Gov. Scott Walker's biennial state budget proposal, she wondered: What would that actually mean for her schools? When she and some other parents heard that the cut would amount to about $900,000 for Wauwatosa next year and that art, some orchestra, an Advanced Placement course or school maintenance work could be trimmed, they sprang into action. Six weeks later, they've created websites and yard signs and T-shirts, knocked on doors, talked to neighbors and launched a letter-writing campaign that has blasted lawmakers with more than 2,000 pieces...

    Wisconsin ranks 40th in the nation for job growth, or so says a recent Bureau of Labor Statistics report. Many in the media and political circles pounced on the release as evidence that the policies of Republican Gov. Scott Walker, a potential presidential candidate, have left the Badger State trailing much of the nation. But the report failed to give sufficient context to Wisconsinís job growth. The BLS, along with other reports touting similar results, ranked states based on how much private employment increased over a year. Why might Wisconsinís employment increase seem modest? One reason could be that more...

    Under Governor Scott Walker's leadership, Wisconsin will join eleven other states as the newest state to require welfare recipients to pass a drug test before they can receive state welfare funds. While some liberals and liberal-minded religious groups have called out Walker for "targeting" the poor and those with addictions, Walker's response has been spot on: if they're receiving funds from the state, the state should be able to make rules for these people to live by before they can receive a dime. But Walker's drug test isn't simply a play to restrict the number of people who will be...

    Is Russia Planning to Disassemble the International Space Station? Goodbye, International Space Station. We hardly knew ye. For nearly two decades, since the launch of its first "module" in 1998, the International Space Station has been a symbol of global cooperation, and the site of actual cooperation among scientists from many nations. Comprised of 15 separate modules, and inhabited continuously since 2000, the International Space Station has hosted upward of 200 astronauts and cosmonauts from 15 different nations over 17 years in service. But in just a few more years, all this will come to an end. Like disassembling an...

    Amid Russiaís economic woes, billions of dollars continue to disappear in offshore havens. The net outflow of capital from Russia reached $32.6 billion during the first quarter of 2015, according to the nationís Central Bank. The bank is now forecasting that capital flight may reach $131 billion by the end of the year. In reporting first quarter numbers, the Central Bank also upwardly revised the 2014 figure for net capital outflow to $154.1 billion from the previously reported $151.5 billion. That figure marks the highest annual total of capital flight since the Central Bank started tracking the trend back in...

    President Obama's bid for fast track trade authority along with a huge Asian trade deal fell into further trouble Sunday night when a key Republican senator charged that the deals open the door to more immigration and let the administration make future changes without congressional approval.

"The president has circumvented Congress on immigration with serial regularity. But the TPA would yield new power to the executive to...

International Business Times got an early look at the ratings of the three Republicans who have officially launched presidential campaigns.

The ICC has since abandoned the case against Kenyatta over his role in the 2007-2008 post-election violence, citing a lack of evidence and Kenya's failure to cooperate - somewhat removing Kenyatta's...

    AN OPEN LETTER TO THE BALTIMORE/FERGUSON NEIGHBORHOODS: Ya know. Iím convinced that the one thing that would end this Baltimore and Ferguson kind of crap would be to take those people in these areas (those who werenít criminals and had the maturity and common sense -and I believe a LOT of them do), and get them interested in firearms and the second amendment. I'm NOT talking to the lawbreakers here. I'm talking to their neighbors, friends and families. You people who broke the law made your choices. You had your chance. I have YET to take someone to the shooting...

    The Tu-95 Bear H bombers flew into the Alaska zone on April 22. But unlike most earlier incursions, no U.S. interceptor jets were dispatched to shadow them, said defense officials familiar with the latest U.S.-Russian aerial encounter. Navy Capt. Jeff Davis, a spokesman for the U.S. Northern Command and North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD), declined to confirm the incursion. But he said no jets were dispatched last week to intercept intruding aircraft.

    Cristian Jereghi is a Russian citizen. For a few more days, at any rate. A born and bred Muscovite, he is about to receive Ukrainian citizenship as a reward for fighting pro-Russian separatists in the county's east. Jereghi, 25, says he decided to break ties with his native country after witnessing firsthand what he describes as Russia's aggressive actions in Ukraine. "I'm renouncing my Russian citizenship," he says. "I will send my passport back to the Russian Consulate in a pretty envelope." While a number of Russian citizens are known to have joined the insurgency in eastern Ukraine, reports of...
