But as majority verdicts go, it was a pretty resounding one''and it was delivered despite the BBC´s best efforts to muddy the waters, first by wheeling out two of the nation´s Multi Culti Apologist big guns Owen Jones and Yasmin Alibhai'Brown, and second by pretending that multiculturalism means something other than what it actually means. [Snip] That´s because it means the exact opposite. It´s about separatism, not integration. "Immigration Rights": What Are They?

His themes were tiresomely familiar–we are the good guys, Republicans are the bad guys–but one interesting feature was his reference to “immigration rights.” This passage laid the groundwork: When unions and CEOs, when law enforcement and the evangelical community, when folks who usually don’t agree on anything agree that we should be fixing our broken immigration system, but the Republicans in the House of Representatives have been sitting on a bill for more than a Why One West Virginia Town Has Banned Cell Phones Tue, 02 56 2014 09:56:14 GMT 687b1c5324dd88a959206ac6bca2b71378923006 National Journal, by Laura Ryan Posted By: StormCnter- Tue, 02 56 2014 09:56:14 GMT Only four hours west of Washington, there is a town where cell phones and wireless Internet are outlawed. Commercial radios are banned, and microwaves aren´t welcome either. Green Bank might sound like a Luddite´s dreamscape, but the West Virginia hamlet´s self'imposed blackout is being done all in the name of science: Green Bank is home to the world´s largest radio telescope, a 100'meters'in'diameter dish that is the crown jewel of the National Radio Astronomy Observatory. By measuring radio waves emitted from objects in space, the Robert C. Byrd Green Bank Telescope can go where optical telescopes can´t.

NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said Monday the new multinational force would be part of a “Readiness Action Plan (that) responds to Russia’s aggressive behavior,” adding that “it equips the alliance to respond to all security challenges wherever they may arise.” Rasmussen acknowledged that a NATO conference originally scheduled to focus on Afghanistan will now be dominated by the Ukraine crisis when heads of the 28 IRS scandal needs a special prosecutor Tue, 02 51 2014 09:51:38 GMT dd4c3434d888afa88be96ef36e852a5882b2a1ad Washington Examiner [DC], by Editorial Posted By: MissMolly- Tue, 02 51 2014 09:51:38 GMT We have heard the phrase “phony scandals” applied this summer to several important developments in President Obama´s administration. Obama would now love to place in this category even the IRS scandal, in which Lois Lerner´s division of that agency targeted and harassed conservative non'profit groups. Last summer, Obama had called that scandal “inexcusable” and forced the head of the IRS to resign. How times change. This scandal, though without the fatal consequences that attended the mismanagement of the Veterans Administration, is nevertheless egregious and telling about the nature of the executive over which Obama presides.

This was an English diarist in September 28, 1938, slightly less than a year before the Second World War broke out, writing on the eve of the Munich agreement. Of course, we all know with hindsight that you would have had to be an imbecile to have imagined such a thing by that stage in the advance of Nazi Germany.

Mystery has surrounded the pages on the crowdsourced fundraising site GoFundMe since Saturday, when both were suspended by their creators without an explanatory note to donors.

Clad in a green and red kilt, with an eagle feather in his cap and a ceremonial dagger protruding from his right sock, Leo Barclay said the only certainty was that his country faced an historic crossroads. Next month, Scots will go to the polls to decide if they should end their political union with the United Kingdom and become an entirely self'governing nation.

South Korean President Park Geun'hye told a visiting U.S. delegation of lawmakers on the House of Representatives energy committee on Aug. 11 that tapping into the gusher of ultra'light, sweet crude emerging from places like Texas and North Dakota was a priority, the lawmakers said.

And so he wasn’t. The very next year, his sights already set on second run for governor in 1962, Wallace proclaimed: There’s some people who’ve gone over the state and said, “Well, George Wallace has talked too strong about segregation.” Now let me ask you this: how in the name of common sense can you be too strong about it?

The trained ears are trying now to determine what to make of the chatter about a new attack on the United States, here or abroad and perhaps coordinated by the Islamic State (usually called ISIS). If there’s anything to the chatter (and sometimes there is), we may soon be treated to what happens when Barack Obama employs his famous tactic of “leading from behind.” We have to call it a tactic and not a strategy, since the president says he doesn’t have a strategy.

The London'based rights group says that Isis, also known as the Islamic State (IS), is trying to wipe out ethnic and religious minorities with mass summary killings that could amount to war crimes. It fears that vulnerable communities such as Assyrian Christians, Yazidis, Turkmen and Shabaks ´risk being wiped off the map of Iraq´.

Cantor and firm founder Ken Moelis first disclosed the Virginia Republican´s move to The Wall Street Journal late Monday.

According to Italian newspaper La Repubblica, the Russian leader made the belligerent statement in a phone call with the outgoing EU leader, who is set to be replaced by Luxembourg´s former prime minister Jean'Claude Juncker. Despite the escalating tensions between all parties involved, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has told negotiators in the Belarussian capital of Minsk that an "immediate ceasefire" is Russia´s priority.

The notion goes, if companies earn more, so should their employees. From Fox News: Biden spoke Monday on the grounds of the former Tiger Stadium ahead of organized labor’s annual parade Monday. He stuck with populist themes, criticizing corporate pay and companies that leave the U. S. for lower taxes. He says workers don’t want a handout. Biden says, “Just give them a chance.” Yet, a handout is precisely what Biden’s advocating for.

Barack Obama already is derelict in his duties as commander in chief. He ought to abdicate and just step off his self'made throne. Knowledgeable people were calling for Obama to begin air strikes against the Islamic State barbarians months before Obama could rouse himself to admit that the brutes were something other than “jayvee” terrorists.

Lewis Posted By: StormCnter- Tue, 02 04 2014 09:04:16 GMT Like it or not, this truism is very true: Being president in the modern era requires a certain "It Factor." You don´t need star power to make it to the U.S. Senate, or to rise in its leadership. (Looking at you, Senators Reid and McConnell.) You don´t need an almost celebrity'like sexiness to succeed in the House. (Who among us would describe Steny Hoyer or Steve Scalise in such terms?) But when we´re talking about the presidency, it´s not enough these days to be a highly intelligent lawmaker with a history of policy expertise and success. You´ve got to have charisma.

The car crashed into trees with such force that the vehicle split in half, killing his friends. Beer, who was 17 in October 2012 when the crash occurred, pleaded guilty to aggravated vehicular homicide and was sentenced last week to 5 years to 15 years in prison.

But his objectives will be clouded by the West´s inability to halt the Russian aggression in Ukraine that has stoked fears in other former Soviet republics.

In 2007, Lerner responded directly to a complaint that some major labor unions reported completely different amounts of political expenditures when filing with the IRS and the Department of Labor. At the time of the email, Lerner was the Director of Exempt Organizations at the IRS.

The eatery hung up a “No Guns” sign on its front door. Its customer backlash was so harsh and quick that the steakhouse immediately took down the sign and then posted a mea culpa on its Facebook page. “The sign that was put up regarding firearms has been removed,” TBonz said in its Facebook posting this May. “It was
