    12/04/2015 5:51:04 PM PST · by Helicondelta · 128 replies ^ | December 4
    U.S. Senator Marco Rubio is about to be rocked by a "mistress bomb," multiple sources familiar with the allegation tell FITS. In fact, we're told this explosive rumor could detonate in wide circulation within the next forty-eight hours. "There is a decent chance you are about to see this picture all over the place," one of our sources said, directing us to the corporate webpage of a female Washington, D.C. lobbyist. Details of the forthcoming scandal are not yet clear, although the allegation involving Rubio and the female lobbyist is reportedly being leaked to "multiple mainstream media outlets" this week.All...

Solyndra LLC of Fremont, Calif., had become the poster child for government investment in green technology. The president visited the company in May 2010 and noted that Solyndra expected to hire 1,000 workers to manufacture solar panels. Other state and federal officials such as former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Energy Secretary Steven Chu also visited the company's facilities. But hard times have hit the...

It is on this principle that you aim to base US policy in our region; a region that you rightly defined as the cradle of human culture. Your words reflected your understanding that it is not only humanity's past that is bound up with this area, but its future, as well. The instability in the Middle East generates great danger for humanity, perhaps the greatest danger since World War II. The fate of humanity is inextricably linked to...
