    Wednesday, 21 November 2012 18:00 What to Expect From the New Congress Written by Thomas R. Eddlem The election results were not even finished being tallied by the time the left-wing, establishment media began telling constitutionalist Republicans that the path to electoral success was to sell out their principles before the next election, call themselves moderates, and adopt every aspect of the far-left Democratic political agenda. Though Mitt Romney had no discernible difference on principles from Barack Obama and his national healthcare program, that didnt stop the Washington Posts Richard Cohen from sermonizing on election night about how the Republican...

    Obama to Hold ‘Private’ Swear-in Ceremony for Second Presidential Term Something is not right in America, take 2. By Shepard Ambellas theintelhub.com November 20, 2012 One month from now on January 20, 2013, President Obama will be required by law to be sworn-in for his second presidential term by noon. However, something mysterious is happening again with the ceremony raising the eyebrows of some. Since the 20th falls on a Sunday, a private ceremony will be held signifying the possibility of fraud as the “public” ceremony will be held the following day. The fact is that even a deviation by...

    Internal Military Emails Reveal Details On bin Laden's Burial November 21, 2012 WASHINGTON Internal emails among senior U.S. military officers indicate that no sailors watched Usama bin Laden's burial at sea from the USS Carl Vinson and traditional Islamic procedures were followed during the ceremony. The emails, obtained by The Associated Press through the Freedom of Information Act, are heavily blacked out, but are the first public disclosure of government information about the Al Qaeda leader's death. The emails were released Wednesday by the Defense Department. Bin Laden was killed on May 1, 2011, by a Navy SEAL team...

Researchers who studied 4D scans of 15 healthy fetuses also said they think yawning is a developmental process which could potentially give doctors a new way to check on...

The Office of Children's Commission interim study released Wednesday also found about 16,500 additional children are at "high risk" of sexual exploitation based on behavioural changes that were noted. The report, which did not cover Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales, is characterized as the largest ever study of child sex abuse in England, and suggested urgent action be taken to better protect vulnerable children.

    For some reason, even after "binders," "birth control," and Big Bird actually did help Obama win a second term, the Republican Party is apparently still under the illusion that, just because the Left and the media launch a Narrative that's objectively false and nonsensical, we don't have to push back against it. But if those exit polls taught us anything, it's that we do. And a lack of pushback is why we're currently losing the Susan Rice debate. While Republicans are off licking their wounds or just taking a break after an exhausting campaign, the Left and the media are...

It is indeed a sign of the times that we as a nation - founded on moral absolutes and the rule of law - are at a final fatal decline.

    AFP - Twelve rockets fired from the Gaza Strip hit Israel on Wednesday in the first hours that followed a ceasefire agreement ending hostilities in the week-long Gaza conflict, a police spokesman told AFP. The Israeli spokesman added that the attacks caused no injuries or damage, with the rockets mostly landing in open fields in the south of the Jewish state. A ceasefire agreement announced in Cairo on Wednesday went into effect at 1900 GMT, requiring both sides to halt fire immediately and for Israel to start opening Gaza's crossings if the truce holds for 24 hours.

    Pennsylvania's Community College of Allegheny County (CCAC) is slashing the hours of 400 adjunct instructors, support staff, and part-time instructors to dodge paying for Obamacare. "It's kind of a double whammy for us because we are facing a legal requirement [under the new law] to get health care and if the college is reducing our hours, we don't have the money to pay for it," said adjunct biology professor Adam Davis. On Tuesday, CCAC employees were notified that Obamacare defines full-time employees as those working 30 hours or more per week and that on Dec. 31 temporary part-time employees will...

    The Kremlin is moving from confusion to controversy in international affairs, a policy area which used to boost Russias great power status and bring joy to its leaders. Moscow cannot formulate a coherent position on the eruption of violence in the Gaza black hole, and the attempt of Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov to explain Russias position on the Syrian civil war to the Gulf Cooperation Council was rebuffed so undiplomatically that he refused to stay for the scheduled dinner (Rossiyskaya Gazeta, November 16).

    President Barack Obama must show a willingness to cut back the healthcare reform law during budget negotiations, says House Speaker John Boehner. President Obama has won re-election, but his healthcare law is still driving up costs and making it harder for small businesses to hire workers. As was the case before the election, Obamacare has to go, Boehner writes in the Cincinnati Enquirer. The presidents health care law adds a massive, expensive, unworkable government program at a time when our national debt already exceeds the size of our countrys entire economy.

    The U.S. Muslim Brotherhood and its non-Muslim allies have sprung into action. They are demanding that President Obama make Israel end its offensive against Hamas which, in characteristic Islamist fashion, they are falsely depicting as a genocidal crusade. Obama blames Hamas, but the pressure from Islamists, the anti-Israel left and other countries like Britain and France, may be taking a toll. He signaled possible opposition to an Israeli ground operation, saying itd be preferable to end the Hamas rocket threat without sending in troops.

    It is an odd thing, this ceasing of fire proposed to be negotiated between Israel and Hamas. A throwback to wars of old, it postulates that in the absence of shooting, the parties will retrieve their dead, celebrate their festivals (see the 1914 Christmas truce on the battlefield of Flanders), or even, possibly, figure out what to do in the longer term. It is entirely in-applicable to Israel -- first and foremost because the shooting is not the greatest problem Israel faces. Israel's problem is more of certainty and uncertainty. The concentration of Israeli brainpower and American funds on the...

In a 65-page filing about Operation Fast and Furious, the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee said federal courts have routinely reviewed the validity of congressional inquiries. The lawyers for the House said Holder's contention that courts cannot adjudicate political disputes would permanently shut the courthouse doors to virtually all disputes between the executive and legislative branches.

As a result, the implementation of federal health care reform continues to move forward. While I may disagree with the federal health care law, health insurance exchanges will now be built. To do so, federal law provides states three options: 1) create a federally run exchange; 2) create a state-run exchange; 3) establish a partnership plan requiring the state to administer the exchange for the federal government. The most important consideration for me in deciding which option is best for our state is...

CBS News requested the photos on October 31; the White House has routinely released photos showing members of the Obama administration in their hero poses during national security crises. That happened most famously with pictures of the Obama administration key players clustered into the White House situation room during the raid on Osama Bin Ladens compound in Pakistan.

    אני יודע שישנם אזרחים שמצפים לפעולה צבאית חריפה עוד יותר, וייתכן מאוד שנידרש לה, אבל בעת הזאת, הדבר הנכון למדינת ישראל הוא למצות את ההזדמנות הזאת להשיג הפסקת אש מתמשכת. כראש ממשלה מוטלת עליי האחריות – והיא אחריות עליונה – לעשות את הצעדים הנכונים לשמור על ביטחוננו. כך נהגתי, כך אמשיך לנהוג. I realize that there are citizens who expect a harsher military action and we may very well need to do that. But at present, the right thing for the State of Israel is to exhaust this possibility of reaching a long-term cease-fire. As Prime Minister, I have...

    Henry Winkler of "Happy Days" fame is considered one of the nicest people in Hollywood. You don't hear any horror stories about his on-set behavior, and he's managed to leave the iconic Fonzie character behind to play supporting roles in projects like "Arrested Development" and "Here Comes the Boom." Winkler's reaction to puppeteer Kevin Clash resigning from "Sesame Street" amid allegations the puppeteer engaged in sexual acts with minors hardly seemed in character. In fact, Winkler's comment is downright ugly. No one is disputing Clash's talents. Just watch last year's documentary "Being Elmo" to marvel at his many gifts. But...

    Hamas chief Khaled Mashaal announced in a press conference Wednesday evening that Israel "has failed in all its goals" in Operation Defensive Pillar, following the cease fire announcement. "After eight days, God stayed their hand from the people of Gaza, and they were compelled to submit to the conditions of the resistance," Mashaal said. "Israel has failed in all its goals," he told reporters in a Cairo hotel. Mashaal also thanked ceasefire mediator Egypt, as well as Iran, which he said "had a role in arming" Hamas during the conflict. Arabs in Gaza took to the streets to celebrate the...

The FTD was launched in 2000 as an affiliate to the British Financial Times, but ownership passed into the hands of G+J, owned by Bertelsmann media group, in 2008.

The LAPD says that travellers should arrive 90 minutes earlier than usual. LAX already advises people to arrive two hours in advance.
