Yet another Veterans Affairs backlog
Washington Examiner (DC), by Rep. Doug Lamborn    Original Article

After our nation was attacked on 9/11, tens of thousands of our fellow citizens stepped forward to answer the call of defending and protecting freedom and liberty. These brave men and women served in dangerous combat settings and continue to be let down by the Department of Veterans Affairs. Thanks to the actions of a courageous whistleblower, it appears as though the VA — through either indifference or incompetence — is keeping promised benefits from service members. Tens of thousands of combat veterans who served in Iraq and Afghanistan are being denied enrollment in VA health care because of a

A bunch of people were shocked to find out over Thanksgiving dinner that members of their family support Donald Trump for president. (Tweets) The support for the real estate billionaire shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone paying attention to the presidential race so far. According to Real Clear Politics, Trump has the support of nearly 28 percent of registered Republicans in an average of recent national polls. Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson sits in second place with just under 20 percent. But perhaps those who lamented their pro-Trump relatives on Twitter thought that it was other peoples’ families that are supporting

Fresno — As Mike Spicer laid 8-month-old Ryder Lockwood on the passenger seat of his truck to start CPR, he said a prayer to God. Minutes before, Ryder had been in the back seat of an overturned vehicle that struck a tree off the side of Highway 198 in Visalia. Spicer, a retired California Highway Patrol officer and head of security for Adventist Health in the central San Joaquin Valley, spotted the wreck Saturday morning, pulled over, and was handed a dead baby. The 61-year-old Hanford, Calif., man had seen many dead bodies over 27 years in the CHP.



Dutch Court to Rejected ´Refugees´:

Holland, which has been suffering from the "refugee" influx even before Muslim immigrants were called "refugees," can now expel them without worrying about European notions of "human rights." A Dutch high court on Thursday upheld a government policy of withholding food and shelter to rejected asylum-seekers who refuse to be repatriated, giving legal backing to one of Europe´s toughest immigration policies. The Raad van State or Council of State, which reviews the legality of government decisions, found that the new policy of conservative Prime Minister Mark Rutte does not contravene the European Convention on Human Rights.

Chicago — A 27-year-old man has been charged in the execution-style shooting of 9-year-old Tyshawn Lee. Corey Morgan, of the 7800 block of South Hoyne Avenue, has been charged with first-degree murder, according to the Cook County State’s Attorney’s office. He was due to appear for a bond hearing Friday afternoon. (Snip) Tyshawn, who was in fourth grade, was shot multiple times at close range with a .40-caliber weapon, after being lured into an alley at 80th and Damen, near his grandmother’s house, on Nov. 2.

Atlanta — Federal officials are ordering Georgia to process food stamp applications for Syrian refugees. Jessica Shahin, associate administrator of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, sent a letter Wednesday to Bobby Cagle, director of the Georgia Division of Family and Children Services, which administers the food stamp program in the state. Gov. Nathan Deal last week issued an order directing state agency heads to prevent the resettlement of Syrian refugees in the state. Subsequently, the commissioner of the Georgia Department of Human Services sent a memo to agency staff instructing them not to take or process new applications for any benefit assistance

The Republican establishment is nearing full-blown panic about Donald Trump. The demise of Trump´s candidacy has been predicted by centrist Republicans and the media alike since the day it began. But there is no empirical evidence at all to suggest it is happening. (snip) “He has a real shot at this. He is the clear front-runner,” said Ron Bonjean, a consultant and former aide to GOP leaders on Capitol Hill.

At least five gunmen opened fire Thursday on a Shiite mosque in northern Bangladesh, killing at least one person and injuring three others, according to media reports. The Islamic State group, also known as ISIS, reportedly claimed responsibility for the attack. The incident took place in the Bogra district, about 120 miles north of Bangladesh´s capital Dhaka, during evening prayers at the mosque. Mohammed Asaduzzaman, Bogra district police chief, reportedly said that the man who was killed was a mosque official in his 70s. Authorities said that at least 20 people were performing prayers at the time of the attack.

Poland will not extradite filmmaker Roman Polanski to the U.S. in an almost 40-year-old case after prosecutors declined to challenge a court ruling against it. Prosecutors in Krakow, who had sought the extradition on behalf of the U.S., said Friday they found the court´s refusal of extradition to be “right” and said they found no grounds to appeal it. Polanski´s lawyer, Jan Olszewski, told The Associated Press that Polanski´s reaction was of “great relief” and of “satisfaction” that the irregularities in the U.S. procedure have been exposed. Polanski spoke to his lawyer over the phone from Paris, where he lives with his

Sometimes the dark horses are the ones to watch. On November 23rd Blue Origin, a publicity-shy rocketry firm owned by Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon, announced that it had achieved something spectacular. Not only did its New Shepard craft make it safely back to Earth after a brief sojourn in space—so, too, did the BE-3 rocket booster that launched New Shepard. After separating from the spacecraft, the rocket fell back to Earth. At around 1.5km from the ground, it reignited its engines, slowing its fall and making a controlled, gentle landing (pictured). To quote the firm’s triumphant press release:

Pope Francis did not go down the narrow pathways bordered by open sewers that lead into the depths of Nairobi´s Kangemi slum. All he was able to see during the ride in his popemobile on the outskirts of the slum, past huts of corrugated iron, was a quick glimpse of the labyrinth of brown and grey tin roofs and the smoke of the charcoal fires burning below. Members of the crowd who greeted the pontiff with applause and Swahili ululations were happy nevertheless. "Even though he is running on a tight schedule, he has made time to visit us here.

President Barack Obama´s attempts to destroy Isil have been derided by Western diplomats and his own former intelligence officials.Mr Obama has insisted that the United States will not change the strategy that he said was already “containing” Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) and would work eventually to “degrade and destroy” it. But in a series of candid interviews with the Telegraph, Western diplomats and intelligence officials - current and former - have angrily dismissed the approach as a “smoke and mirrors” public relations exercise founded on little substantive or effective action. “It’s smoke and mirrors and that is the

The more you pay attention to Marco Rubio, the third-place frontrunner for the 2016 GOP presidential nomination, the more you begin to understand just how slippery he is as a politician. His contortions and backflips on immigration policy – going from a vocal supporter of comprehensive reform to a standard-issue “border security first” Republican – are well-documented. But in the last week Rubio has obscured his positions on three other issue areas, leaving the casual observer unsure as to where he stands, but giving them enough information to make them feel he generally agrees with them.Refugees Way back in September, when

End of daily injections for diabetes

The end of daily injections for diabetes sufferers could be in sight after scientists showed it is possible to restore insulin production for up to a year by boosting the immune system. Hundreds of thousands of people in Britain suffer from Type 1 diabetes and need to inject themselves daily to keep blood sugar levels under control. The disease attacks insulin-secreting cells in the pancreas. Healthy people have billions of ‘peacekeeping’ cells called ‘T-regs’ which protect insulin-making cells from the immune system but people suffering Type 1 diabetes do not have enough.

NY Post: Colbert´s ´Late Show´ on CBS

Since Stephen Colbert took the reins from David Letterman at The Late Show on CBS, he’s been proving to be serving comedy and commentary for the blue half of America. Kyle Smith of the New York Post penned a piece titled “Colbert’s Late Show has become propaganda for Democrats.” The large amount of advertising spent on the buildup to Colbert taking over Letterman’s coveted spot brought a decent jolt in ratings at the beginning of the show, but have since plummeted, mainly because Colbert has turned off a significant portion of that audience – the conservative audience.

The 2010 SCOTUS ‘Citizens United’ decision injected unlimited financial funding into politics via Super-PACs. Conservatives were screwed, but it took most a long time to come to the awakening. As a direct result the broader electorate was no longer needed for financial support – evidenced in the 2012 and 2014 campaign spending cycles. (Snip)Now Mitch McConnell is moving to put the GOPe Party back into direct control via a new proposal to remove campaign limits and allow Wall Street to fund Republicans directly without going through SuperPacs.

Why did it take Turkey just
17 seconds to shoot down Russian jet?

Even if Turkey is right that a Russian fighter jet strayed into its airspace, the plane was within Ankara’s borders for just 17 seconds before being attacked – and was making no hostile moves against the Turks. (Snip) That the Turks shot down the jet and did so within 17 seconds – with the president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, saying he gave the order to fire himself – suggests very strongly they were waiting for a Russian plane to come into or close enough to Turkish airspace with the aim of delivering a rather pyrotechnic message.

TAMPA — When Patrick Manteiga traveled to Cuba in 2002, it was to be a part of history as a member of the delegation led by then-Tampa Mayor Dick Greco, the city’s first elected official to meet with Fidel Castro. But Manteiga also sought to remind Cuba of its established history with Tampa. Manteiga, the third-generation owner of the La Gaceta newspaper, brought with him a photo of his grandfather and publication founder Victoriano Manteiga sitting with Castro at a Tampa union hall in November 1955 for a fundraiser for the future Cuban president’s revolution. Despite not seeing the late Victoriano Manteiga for

Donald Trump, the presidential hopeful who believes himself so high and mighty he can’t possibly he wrong, is now claiming that he has no idea who the reporter is after mocking his physical disability just days ago. After days of defending his false claim that New Jersey Muslims were celebrating the 9/11 terror attacks by the thousands, Trump cited an article written by Serge Kovaleski, a Washington Post reporter who has since joined the New York Times. While the article only addresses rumors at the time and does nothing to make the claim truthful, Trump has run with it despite Kovaleski’s

WASHINGTON -Sure, Jeb Bush can become a leading Republican presidential candidate. It’s gonna be tough, but hardly impossible. More and more, voters want someone with government experience and sound political judgment. As election days get closer, they’ll seek more depth and nuance about issues. And Bush and his backers also bring a huge pile of campaign cash and a proven network of insiders well-schooled in politics and policy. Bush remains a long-shot, and polls still show him mired deep in single digits. The good news? “You’re seeing a little of that (some gains) now,” said David Paleologos, director of the

Demanding transparency from the ´most

President Obama famously pledged on the 2008 campaign trail to have the "most transparent administration in history." Seven years in, that commitment has led to little more than flowery language on whitehouse.gov. The Obama administration has an abysmal record on openness to the press and the American people. Nowhere is it worse than the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). DHS currently boasts the largest backlog of any federal agency and, since the Obama administration took over, there has been a 182 percent increase in the number of FOIA requests at DHS. A November 2014 Government Accountability Office (GAO) report found DHS

BOBIGNY, France—Three days before the attacks that ripped through Paris, Djazira Boulanger handed the keys to her row house, across the street from a kindergarten, to a guest who had booked it over the website Homelidays.com. His name was Brahim Abdeslam. She didn’t know that Mr. Abdeslam was a central figure in plotting the deadly assault. As Ms. Boulanger tended to her two young children at home, authorities say Mr. Abdeslam and a band of cohorts were down the street preparing weapons for an assault on the Stade de France and Paris’s nightlife district. “Did I suspect something was wrong?

SEOUL—A cultural preference for male children has cost Asia dearly. Count up all the girls who were never born because of selective abortion, victims of infanticide and females who died from neglect and there are upwards of 100 million women missing on the continent today by some estimates. Not just a human-rights catastrophe, it is also a looming demographic disaster. With Asian birthrates already plummeting, that is tens of millions of women who will never be mothers. The economic and social impact on some of the world’s largest countries is incalculable. For decades, South Korea was Exhibit A in this

If you follow polls of Republican primary voters or see the huge rallies at which Donald Trump is speaking, it may seem like the time is ripe for an “outsider” candidate to emerge as the next president. But the climate for an outsider candidate is decidedly different among Democrats, independents, and Republicans. We conducted two focus groups with likely 2016 voters in Columbus, Ohio, this month. Most certainly, these voters are sick of the same old gridlock and partisan infighting in Washington. Yet while they are looking for a unifier and consensus-builder, most have not discounted the importance of experience.

THE intense interest in the thrill-a-minute, through-the-looking-glass 2016 race, fueled by anger at maladjusted Washington and anxiety after the Paris attacks, has spawned predictions that Thanksgiving political debates will be noisier and nastier than ever. Plenty of turkeys with a bone to pick and plenty of dressing down to go with the dressing. The Democratic National Committee actually issued talking points for the “lively” conversations with Republican uncles, aunts and brothers. Clearly, the people at the D.N.C. don’t have any Republican relatives. It’s never a parley. It’s a lecture. So I decided to let my Republican brother offer his red-state
