Queen Elizabeth II has set in motion British prime minister David Cameron´s plans for a European Union membership referendum as he faced pressure to explain when it would be held and what changes to the EU he wants. Mr Cameron, who said he would prefer to stay inside a reformed EU but is not "ruling anything out" if it fails to change, was re-elected on May 7 on a pledge to reshape ties with the bloc before allowing Britons to vote on whether to stay or leave.

I just thought I’d contribute a detail to the latest news about the Clintons’ byzantine financial arrangements, specifically the limited-liability company Bill Clinton used to channel his “consulting” profits. The original Associated Press story said that WJC, LLC, the “shell company” in question, was formed in Delaware in 2008. It’s more interesting when you find out the specific date. I searched the database of the Delaware Department of State’s Division of Corporations. There is one listing for WJC, LLC. According to the information on file, the company was formed December 3, 2008. President Obama had confirmed Hillary Clinton as his

Campaign season now officially

southern accent is back

It’s not as bad as the immortal “noways tahhhrd” clip, but that came in front of a mostly black audience and prominent Dems tend to reserve their more cartoonish, insulting accents for minority crowds. Anyway, two theories on the case of the mysterious reappearing twang. One, the charitable version: It’s an unconscious thing Hillary does around southerners after having lived in Arkansas for so many years. My own NYC accent will emerge sometimes, sincerely unintentionally, when I find myself chatting with someone who speaks fluent New Yorkese. Friends from the south who’ve lost traces of their accent over time have

A useful little rule of thumb is that when a government manages to make money worth nothing then they’ve been doing something wrong. There have been hyperinflations of this kind before: Weimar Germany (no, not what brought Hitler to power, a decade before that), post WW II Hungary and of course modern Zimbabwe. Where it got so bad, at the end, that they couldn’t actually print banknotes of sufficient value to purchase the ink with which to print banknotes. That’s why the Z $ finally died. Venezuela hasn’t got quite that bad as yet. With the black market rate for the

FIFA´s Ethics Committee has banned 11 individuals from soccer-related activities amid U.S. allegations of corruption, FIFA said. Several of the banned individuals were named in a Wednesday indictment outlining corruption allegations. Responding to allegations of corruption within FIFA, European soccer´s governing body, UEFA, said its member associations should consider whether to attend the upcoming FIFA World Congress, which the organization said "should be postponed, with new FIFA presidential elections to be organized within the next six months." The next step in the FIFA corruption investigation is extradition, whereby federal officials will attempt to bring suspects to the United States to face allegations

Sweeping corruption probes in the U.S. and Switzerland have cast a shadow over Vladimir Putin´s plans to host the international soccer championships in 2018 Russian officials were quick to claim Wednesday that a U.S. conspiracy is behind the corruption scandal that shook the world of international soccer. Early that morning, police in Switzerland complied with a U.S. request to arrest nine senior officials at FIFA, the sport’s governing body, as part of a far-reaching probe into decades of alleged bribe-taking and backroom deals. But why, the Russians asked, would a nation as indifferent to soccer as the U.S. pursue a corruption probe

Those liars were caught by surprise,” continued Maradona. “Today there is no football, there is no transparency. Just lie to people and put on a show to re-elect Blatter. “Now we’ll see if he gets re-elected after everything that happened.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott predicted Wednesday that the U.S. Supreme Court would ultimately reject a potential Obama administration appeal on the president’s immigration executive actions and that Mr. Obama’s actions are unlikely to actually go into effect before the president leaves office. “We’re not even fighting in the court system about the legal validity of the order — we’re just fighting in the court system about whether or not the executive order goes into effect while we’re legally fighting about that order,” Mr. Abbott said Wednesday on Fox News. “And I got to tell you, it would be highly unusual

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico – Legislators on Tuesday narrowly approved an increase in the U.S. territory´s sales tax to help generate more revenue and offset a deep fiscal crisis. Gov. Alejandro García Padilla is expected to sign the bill that would increase the tax from 7 percent to 11.5 percent, as well as create a new 4 percent tax on professional services. The sales tax increase would go into effect July 1 and the new tax on Oct. 1, with a transition to a value-added tax by April 1. If approved, it would be the highest sales tax compared with any U.S.

Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro stated on Tuesday that an "attack against local currency" was being prepared from the bordering city of Cúcuta, Colombia, and that relevant countermeasures would be adopted. The president denied the possibility of dollarization of the Venezuelan economy, and denounced a "brutal campaign" against the local currency. Maduro stressed that the bolivar would always be the currency used in Venezuela, and that income earned in foreign currency would be invested in housing, education, health, and food.

Colombia´s left-wing Farc rebel group says that one of their negotiators at peace talks in Cuba was among 27 rebels killed in a bombing raid last week. Farc commander Pastor Alape said the rebel known as Jairo Martinez had died in the attack in Cauca province. According to the Farc, Jairo Martinez had been on an "educational mission" to tell rebels about the peace process. The Farc and the Colombian government sides are engaged in peace negotiations but have not agreed a ceasefire. Jairo Martinez was a relatively recent addition to the Farc negotiating team, which he joined on 28 February 2014. Not much is

Little boys fascinate me. I mean really, truly fascinate me. They are fearless. Anything seems possible, and anything is worth trying. They are born with an implicit understanding that it’s easier to ask forgiveness than permission. If it’s fun, let’s make it dangerous. Loud is good and big is better. And if you can turn something small and meaningless into something big and loud and powerful? Well, that is really the ultimate victory.

Why the Obamacare Train
Wreck Must Be Stopped
PanAm Post [New York, NY], by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: PageTurner- 5/27/2015 2:10:11 PM     Post Reply
As of this month, Obamacare has undergone not fewer than 50 substantial changes since its enactment in March 2010. One wonders what is worse: the law and its economically destructive mandates or that US President Barack Obama initiated 31 of these changes without legislative approval. Such wholesale changes on the fly, by the law’s own architects, demonstrate the Affordable Care Act’s resounding failure better than any critic ever could. Many of those responsible have now admitted the error of their ways, resigned, or inadvertently revealed the dishonest manner of its passage. Political proponents such as former Senator Mary Landrieu of Louisiana

Nearly two years after Veo Vessels died, her daughter, 70-year-old Mary Frances Hickman, decided to sell the home her mother had left to her. A sprawling brick house in Oklahoma City’s historic Highland Park neighborhood, it was built in 1924, just a year after Mary’s birth. Decades later, one of Vessels’ great-grandchildren fondly recalls the wood and tile floors, the fish pond, the butler’s quarters, and the multi-car garage where children played house. “It was really, really nice,” says Hickman’s granddaughter, Andrea Martin. That’s part of the reason she’s so surprised her grandmother sold the home in 1993 for a

Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul had some harsh words Wednesday for Republicans who have blamed the rise of Islamic extremism in Iraq and Syria on American disengagement with the Middle East. In an interview on MSNBC´s "Morning Joe," Paul was asked about the criticism he´s received from GOP hawks like South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham and Arizona Sen. John McCain, who have argued that America´s failure to arm moderate rebel groups in the Syrian civil war created space for the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) to grow. "I would say it´s exactly the opposite," Paul said. "ISIS exists and grew

Last october, Syed Azmi Alhabshi, a pharmacist who’d never petted a dog, held an event for the canine-curious in a park outside Kuala Lumpur. Many Malaysian Muslims consider dogs religiously unclean and avoid them out of fear; Syed Azmi explained on Facebook that he hoped the event—which he called “I Want to Touch a Dog”—could “help them (and me) not to be afraid.” It appeared to be a huge success: hundreds of people showed up, and photos of hijab-clad women embracing huskies, pugs, and chow chows got national attention. But in the days that followed, Malaysian Islamic authorities denounced Syed

Immigration activists vowed Republicans will pay a political price after a federal appeals court kept President Barack Obama’s action to defer deportation on hold. The 2-1 decision by a panel of the U.S. Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals on Tuesday was a victory for opponents of Obama’s plan to extend deportation protection and offer work permits to up to five million undocumented immigrants. It also probably will push the court case stemming from a suit by 26 states into the middle of the 2016 presidential campaign. Backers of Obama’s action said the case will exacerbate frustration among Hispanic voters, an

In an interview with MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell outside of where Clinton was set to speak in Columbia, S.C., Fiorina also argued that the seniority system is to blame for the issue, not the laws on the books, a point she has argued in the past.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Army Corps of Engineers said they are making final their proposed waters of the United States rule, which Republicans and many businesses have long panned as a massive federal overreach that would put the EPA in charge of ditches, puddles and wet areas. “We’re finalizing a clean water rule to protect the streams and the wetlands that one in three Americans rely on

This bar sure showed one sailor some stinking standards. Manhattan’s swanky Standard hotel has issued an apology after a Navy officer wearing her iconic white uniform was turned away by a bouncer — during Fleet Week. The sailor was blocked at the elevator to the Top of The Standard lounge around 8 p.m. Saturday when she arrived with three others who wore cocktail attire, one member of the spurned group told the Daily News on Monday. “We walked in, went to the elevator and were stopped by a doorman who said, ‘Hey man, there’s a dress code,’ said Ryan O’Connor,

A lesbian couple purchased engagement rings from a Christian jeweler.They were so pleased with the service, they referred a friend to the shop to purchase a ring for his girlfriend. Said friend spied a sign that read: "The sanctity of marriage is under attack. Let´s keep marriage between a man and a woman." Offense was taken. Once upon a time, this would have led to, in ascending order: an eye roll, daggered glares or an inquiry about the sentiment with perhaps a few words exchanged ending in an agreement to disagree. That is no longer the world in which we live. The
