Mexico arrests suspected
murderer on FBI most wanted list

Reuters, by Dave Graham

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 11/23/2012 5:48:37 PM

Mexico City - Mexican federal police have captured suspected murderer, rapist and drug gang member Joe Luis Saenz, one of the 10 most wanted fugitives on the FBI´s list, the government said on Friday. Saenz, a U.S. citizen, was arrested in the city of Guadalajara in western Mexico on Thursday following an investigation carried out by the federal police in conjunction with the FBI, the government said in a statement. According to the FBI, Saenz is suspected of shooting and killing two rival gang members in Los Angeles in July 1998. For the FBI's most wanted list, see: www.fbi.gov/wanted/topten

Comments:
If the FBI follows current protocol, like Benghazi, it´ll be indefinite before they get to Mexico city to extradite this animal. After all, they wouldn´t want to find out he had one of their ´´Fast & Furious" weapons on him when captured.

Now, if they will only charge Holder with illegal gun sales, and demand his extradition. About forty years in a Mexican prison would be appropriate.

I´m curious. Will Mexico only extradite him if we promise not to impose the death penalty?

The Right’s New “Welfare
Queens”: The Middle Class
New Yorker Magazine, by George Packer    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 3/27/2014 12:51:05 AM     Post Reply
Two weeks ago, I was invited to testify before the Senate Finance Committee on the subject of the economic problems of the middle class. (Snip) Congressional hearings are not the place for truth to emerge, or even for a sustained inquiry into the truth. They are performances, and each actor already has his or her lines memorized—especially the senators, whose questions direct the flow of discussion, and who rarely seem interested in building on or digging deeper into what has gone before. By the end of this hearing, there was no question which character’s voice dominated: it was Lindsey’s, perhaps because he was more familiar with the workings

Belgium Is Shocked America Thinks
It´s Racist for Its Racist Cartoon
and Obama Basketball Cookie
Atlantic Magazine, by Arit John    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 3/27/2014 12:36:19 AM     Post Reply
Belgium´s papers are indignant and confused over a New York magazine post that called their giant Obama-plays-basketball cookie and racist Obama-as-monkey cartoon racist. "According to New York Magazine the edible artwork is outright racist," writes Het Nieuwsblad, a daily paper. "The commentary seems a bit exaggerated, but the website is convinced: Belgians are racists." Niewsblad goes on to argue that the Obama-monkey cartoon was "taken out of context" and the cookie "seemed like a nice gift for the U.S. Embassy," but was taken the wrong way. This is not an opinion column, but a sign that Belgian diversity is weak.

Putin´s Latest Dirty Trick:
Leaking Private Phone Calls
Daily Beast, by Eli Lake    Original Article

In the last seven weeks, intercepted phone conversations between Western and Ukrainian officials have mysteriously surfaced on the Internet. U.S. intelligence officials tell The Daily Beast these phone recordings are part of a deliberate Russian strategy to collect and publicize the private conversations of their adversaries. (Snip) All three intercepted phone calls were invaluable to reinforcing Russia’s desired narrative: depicting the West as meddling in Ukrainian affairs and Ukraine’s new leadership as implacably hostile to Moscow. Not coincidentally, all three calls received major play on the Kremlin-funded Russian propaganda

A major development occurred today in the scandal surrounding the Washington Post’s attempt to advance Democratic Party talking points by falsely linking Koch Industries to the Keystone Pipeline. (Snip) The facts, very briefly, are these: Koch Industries has no interest in the Keystone Pipeline; it has not lobbied in favor of the pipeline; if the pipeline is built, Koch will make no use of it to ship oil from Alberta or anywhere else; and construction of Keystone would actually damage Koch’s economic interests by raising the price of midwestern oil that flows to Koch’s Pine Bend refinery.

Trenton, N.J. - New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie says undergoing stomach banding surgery more than a year ago was a "life-changing decision." Appearing on his monthly TownSquare Media radio show Wednesday night, Christie says he works out four days a week and has achieved better health. The 51-year-old governor hasn´t said how many pounds he´s shed, but he has become noticeably thinner since secretly undergoing the surgery last February. He says he enjoys riding a stationary bike but does not like doing side-lift exercises with dumbbells. The possible 2016 Republican presidential candidate has said he´s struggled with being

Los Angeles - Columbus Short, a lead actor on the television series "Scandal," was arrested Wednesday on a felony charge that he seriously injured a man during an altercation at a restaurant earlier this month. Short was arrested by police in Claremont on a warrant issued in a case that alleges he committed a battery that caused serious bodily harm. The actor was involved in a dispute with a man at a West Los Angeles restaurant March 15 before Short hit the man and knocked him out, according to Los Angeles police and prosecutors. Further details about the altercation were not released. Short, 31, plays attorney Harrison Wright on

Big Pot rising: The marijuana
industry’s first full-time lobbyist
makes rounds on Capitol Hill

It took Michael Correia more than a week after getting his new job to tell his parents he was a marijuana lobbyist. “I just got a job lobbying for a small-business trade association that focuses on taxes and banking issues,” he told them four months ago after being hired by the National Cannabis Industry Association. He wasn’t lying, but for a guy who had been working for Republicans and conservative organizations for the better part of 16 years, telling his mom and dad about representing Big Pot wasn’t exactly high on his list. It wasn’t the first time he neglected to tell his parents about marijuana in his life.

Secret Service incident in Netherlands
was on heels of car wreck during
Obama’s Miami trip

As the U.S. Secret Service arrived in the Netherlands last weekend for a presidential trip, managers were already on high alert to avoid any further em­barrassing incidents involving agents. The agency’s director had admonished supervisors after two counter-sniper officers suspected of drinking were involved in a March 7 car accident during a presidential visit to Miami, according to several people with knowledge of the incident. The driver passed a field sobriety test and was not arrested. So in Amsterdam on Saturday night, Secret Service supervisor George Hartford had the Miami incident in mind when he issued a warning

President Obama got elected

are starting to wonder.

On Tuesday night two things happened. 1. A trio of Secret Service agents were sent home from Amsterdam after one was found passed out drunk in a hotel hallway. 2. The Obama Administration announced (another) extension of the enrollment deadline for Obamacare signups. At first glance, these two events have little in common with one another. But, modern politics is all about narratives and storylines. And, both of these events confirm a growing concern from the public about President Obama: That he´s just not up to governing his administration and, by extension, the country, effectively.

At least eight firefighters have been injured while battling a 9-alarm, wind-whipped blaze that broke out in Boston’s Back Bay neighborhood. The inferno began in the basement of a four-story brownstone at 298 Beacon St. around 2:45 p.m. Wednesday, the Boston Fire Department tweeted. It since spread up through all the floors and out through the roof. Eight firefighters have been taken to area hospitals, according to Boston EMS, but the extent of their injuries is unclear. One firefighter was in cardiac arrest as his desperate colleagues loaded him into an amublance, WCVB-TV reported. He was described as in serious condition by

Reid´s Kin May Have

On Tuesday, news broke that Harry Reid spent nearly $17,000 in campaign funds on “holiday gifts” for supporters and staff. Those gifts turned out to be jewelry made by the Senate majority leader’s granddaughter, Ryan Elisabeth Reid (who was listed on the FEC expenditure report as Ryan Elisabeth). Shortly after the story began circulating, Sen. Reid defended the arrangement but announced he would personally reimburse the campaign. It doesn’t appear that the Democratic leader violated any FEC rules, because his daughter’s company was technically a campaign vendor. Still, the perceived financial nepotism struck a nerve with many

Cairo - Egypt’s military strongman, Field Marshal Abdulfattah el-Sisi, has resigned as defence minister so he can stand for president, military sources have confirmed. Field Marshal Sisi was expected to annouce that his dramatic tenure as head of Egypt’s most powerful institution had come to an end with a pre-recorded television broadcast on Wednesday evening. State newspapers said he had called a meeting of the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces during the afternoon to hand in his formal notice. "He will announce his resignation during the broadcast,” one general close to the army’s leadership told The Telegraph.

Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld has said that ´a trained ape´ could do a better job managing American interests in Afghanistan than President Obama. The retired Republican made the insult while doing a phone-in interview for Greta Van Susteren´s Fox News show on Tuesday. He argued that the President made a serious error by failing to negotiate a status forces agreement with Afghan President Hamid Karzai. Gawker points out that such an agreement would effectively commit the United States to having a certain number of troops in the country for a number of years beyond the already-agreed-upon plan which

Three Secret Service agents responsible for protecting President Obama in Amsterdam this week were sent home and put on administrative leave Sunday after going out for a night of drinking, according to three people familiar with the incident. One of them was found drunk and passed out in a hotel hallway, the people said. The hotel staff alerted the U.S. Embassy in the Netherlands after finding the unconscious agent Sunday morning, a day before Obama arrived in the country, according to two of the people. The embassy then alerted Secret Service managers on the presidential trip, which included Secret Service

A pair of potentially catastrophic cases will be argued before the Supreme Court on Tuesday. These cases are brought by privately held, for-profit corporations that are arguing their religious convictions should preclude them from offering employees the health insurance required by law. Specifically, these private employers don’t want to allow their employees’ insurance to cover some forms of birth control because, contrary to medicaland scientific evidence, they believe some birth control causes abortions. Corporations are not people. Corporations cannot have religious views. If religious rights are extended to corporations, it puts us on a slippery slope where any private company

Media Matters, the website of choice for Fox News haters everywhere, attacked the cable news network on Monday for using the term “homosexual” in its programming — advancing the peculiar argument that the scientific term has a “pejorative connotation.” The online “media watchdog” contends that calling gay people “homosexual” is “a practice that’s quickly falling out of favor with major news outlets due the term’s often pejorative connotation and frequent use by opponents of LGBT equality.” Fox News, they chide, “has yet to update its language when referring to gay and lesbian people.” Buttressing their argument?

Former President Jimmy Carter is back in the news this week publicizing a new book about women’s rights. But, as is often the case with Carter, he drew more interest for comments he made about Israel and its supporters. When asked on NBC’s Meet the Press yesterday by Andrea Mitchell why it was that Barack Obama never called upon him for advice, he made it clear that the Jewish state was the reason he has been treated like a pariah: I—that’s a hard question– for me to answer—you know, with complete candor. I think the problem was that– that in dealing

Washington - A leading Democratic pollster predicted a "sobering" turnout disadvantage for her party in this year´s midterm elections and called on Democrats to articulate "a bigger economic agenda" this fall. "There is a huge turnout disadvantage and challenge," Democratic pollster Celinda Lake said Tuesday at a breakfast with reporters.

WASHINGTON — Spring break was never this dull. First Lady Michelle Obama’s kids finally hit the wall on their whirlwind visit to China, showing signs they’ve nearly reached their limit tagging along with mom as she visits site after site on what’s billed as a “person-to-person” tour. Accompanied by Malia, 15, and Sasha, 12, the first lady on Monday toured Xi’an, an ancient city in the ancestral province of Chinese President Xi Jinping. They inspected the city’s 600-year-old wall, a day after touring the Great Wall near Beijing. Photos show Sasha looking like she’d rather be back home with her pals than hitting the

The Obama administration is prepared to give prospective Obamacare enrollees another half-month to signup for insurance coverage through the Affordable Care Act website, healthcare.gov, treating the law´s March 31 regulatory deadline as a formality for Americans who claim they tried in earnest to sign up in time. During a March 12 congressional hearing, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius told Texas Republican Rep. Kevin Brady that there would be no such extensions. ´Are you going to delay the open enrollment beyond March 31?´ Brady asked. ´No, sir,´ she replied.

As the U.S. Supreme Court weighed the constitutionality of a contraception coverage mandate Tuesday morning, a federal appeals court heard a separate legal challenge that could have much more sweeping implications for the future of President Obama´s health care law. And if the oral arguments before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit are any indication, it’s time for the White House to start sweating over a lawsuit that up until now has flown relatively below the radar. At issue in the case are the subsidies that the federal government provides for individuals purchasing insurance through Obamacare. Though the text

On Wednesday, Obama administration officials announced a two week extension in the deadline to enroll in the Affordable Care Act or face a penalty defined as a tax. Asked about this “delay” in the implementation of the ACA on Wednesday, Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) said that there has been no delay. He added that some of the users who experienced problems with the website early on need more time, partially because “people are not educated about how to use the internet.” “There’s no hiccup or delay,” Reid insisted. “We had hundreds of thousands of people who tried to sign up and
