  • Bill Clinton: Netanyahu 'not the guy' to strike lasting Middle East peace deal

    Former US president recorded going off-message in criticising the Israeli government’s unwillingness to seek peace Bill Clinton has been recorded going off-message and criticising the Israeli government’s unwillingness to seek peace with Palestinians in unguarded comments that contrast with other leading Democrats, including his wife, potential presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. Though brief and apparently unscripted, the exchange, which was recorded by C-Span and picked up by Israeli newspaper Haaretz, is in stark contrast to recent comments by Hillary Clinton, who has been more supportive of Netanyahu’s handling of the recent conflict in Gaza. The Obama administration has also been less...

    Eric Worrall writes: The imminent climate summit in New York is rapidly turning into an utter embarrassment for President Obama and UN Secretary General Bank Ki-Moon, in addition to becoming a bit of a punishment round for national deputy leaders. Aussie PM Tony Abbott today defended his decision not to hop on an earlier flight to America, so he could attend the UN climate conference in New York, because he has more important matters to attend to, such as running the country. Chinese President Xi Jinping and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi have also indicated they likely won’t attend the...

    “So, your kids must love the iPad?” I asked Mr. Jobs, trying to change the subject. The company’s first tablet was just hitting the shelves. “They haven’t used it,” he told me. “We limit how much technology our kids use at home.” I’m sure I responded with a gasp and dumbfounded silence. I had imagined the Jobs’s household was like a nerd’s paradise: that the walls were giant touch screens, the dining table was made from tiles of iPads and that iPods were handed out to guests like chocolates on a pillow. Nope, Mr. Jobs told me, not even close....

A spokesman for Rep. Kirkpatrick said the float was run by volunteers, and the congresswoman was not present.

    Forbes ^ | 9/11/2014 | Loren Thompson
    On September 10, only hours before the anniversary of the 9-11 attacks, President Obama summoned the nation to a renewed campaign against Islamic terrorists in the Middle East. Using one of several names for the fanatics who have seized large swaths of Syria and Iraq, the president said, “This counterterrorism campaign will be waged through a steady, relentless effort to take out ISIL, wherever they exist, using our air power and our support for partner forces on the ground.” As the president’s words indicate, precise application of air power is crucial to this plan. The U.S. has already bombed over...

    A lot of people assume the term “female misogynist” is an oxymoron. How can a woman be opposed to the fight to help women achieve equality? The sad fact of the matter is, as long as there has been feminism, there have been women who find it personally advantageous to reject feminism and instead argue for continuing social systems that perpetuate women’s inequality, male dominance, and even violence against women. (There were even plenty of women who were willing to argue against women’s suffrage back in the day.) Here is a list of nine women who have made a career...

    When his ideals fail, Davutoglu does two things: he asserts that they failed not because his vision was wrong but because the world order is wrong, and must be corrected; and he tends to find euphemisms. After the IS took 49 Turks hostage, Davutoglu's deputy minister said that "they were not actually being kept hostage," but "were merely interned." How nice! Perhaps the Turkish consulate personnel are now playing backgammon with IS's backgammon heavyweights. Meanwhile, the standard Turkish official attribution to the IS is that it is "an organization," with careful abstinence of the word "terrorist." Do the Turks think...

    According to the source close to the Palins, that is not what happened. He said that the problem began with Cleary engaging in some unnamed “questionable behavior,” after which he tried to get into the Hummer. Four men “piled on” top of Track. Seeing his son involved in a one-against-four battle, Todd Palin joined in, presumably to get the guys off of his kid. That was how he ended up being bloodied up.

    Back during the 2008 presidential campaign a lot of conservatives predicted that if Obama were elected president his administration would amount to Jimmy Carter’s second term. Little did anyone at the time realize just how prescient those predictions turned out to be. After all, it was Jimmy Carter that enabled Islamic fundamentalism to take root in Iran through his support in deposing Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi. It’s very likely true that the Shah was a son-of-a-gun that established SAVAK, a secret police force that brutally suppressed any political opposition against the regime. But in point of fact, he was our...

But what do the numbers show about N.F.L. players’ tangles with the law more broadly? Are some teams’ players more likely to get into legal trouble? Are arrests rising or falling? What are the most common offenses? USA Today maintains a database of arrests, charges, and citations of N.F.L. players for anything more serious than a traffic citation.

Otherwise greenhouse gas emissions will push global warming past 2˚C of temperature rise worldwide, threatening the survival of many people currently living on the planet. Every climate expert will tell you we’re on a tight carbon budget as it is—that only so many tons of carbon dioxide can be pumped into the...

For 14 years and 435 episodes, the Nelsons starred in a TV show about themselves, filmed on sets that replicated their own Los Angeles home. They invited America into their living room from 1952 to 1966, and hundreds of thousands of American families returned the favor. Even now, the phrase "Ozzie and Harriet" is practically synonymous with clean-scrubbed 1950s America.

    By delaying his promised executive action on immigration until after the November election, "President Obama has decided this election will be a referendum on amnesty," Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said on Tuesday. Cruz is demanding that the "do-nothing" Senate, led by Harry Reid (D-Nev.), allow every senator to vote on Republican legislation that would end "the promise of amnesty" by defunding President Obama's DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) program.

THE BALD LIES OF POLITICAL EXPEDIENCY Remember the al-Qaeda-is-on-the-run 2012-election talking point? It was mostly a lie. The administration deliberately released to sympathetic journalists only those documents from the so-called Osama bin Laden trove that revealed worry and dissension among the terrorists.
