North Korea to target U.S.
with nuclear, rocket tests

Reuters, by Ju-min Park & Choonsik Yoo

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 1/24/2013 3:33:53 PM

Seoul - North Korea said on Thursday it would carry out further rocket launches and a nuclear test that would target the United States, dramatically stepping up its threats against a country it called its "sworn enemy". (Snip) North Korea is not believed to have the technology to deliver a nuclear warhead capable of hitting the continental United States, although its December launch showed it had the capacity to deliver a rocket that could travel 10,000 km (6,200 miles), potentially putting San Francisco in range, according to an intelligence assessment by South Korea. "We are not disguising the fact

Well, this should help you sleep better tonight, especially with Kerry soon to be Secretary of Defense./S

Next, it´ll be their buddy Iran in the Middle East. AND, are you paying attention to the nukes that may be up for grabs at any time from Pakistan by the Al Qaeda when we leave? Psst. Get Hawaii and mess with 0bama´s posh future vacation plans.

Maybe Vincent van Gogh was right in how he saw " Starry Night."

Progressives are only prepared to deal with imaginary problems like global warming, sea change,snail darters etc.

They much prefer to create problems.

While I would regret the loss of millions of lives in a nuclear attack.....it would almost be worth it just to see what the unicorn riders do about it besides raise taxes and blame republicans.

The North Korean´s don´t need to target a specific city. It is my understanding the types of nuclear devices they are developing are EMP weapons. One or two of these detonated over the US could knock out every electronic device on the ground. They could shut down the country for a long time. Read "one second after."

In an apparent reversal of his past campaign statements, President Barack Obama told Fox News´s Bill O´Reilly in a Sunday interview that he does not believe in fundamentally transforming America. O´Reilly read Obama a question from a viewer who asked, "Mr. President, why do you feel it is necessary to fundamentally transform the nation that has afforded you so much opportunity and success?" "I don´t think we need to fundamentally transform the nation," said Obama. "But those are your words," explained O´Reilly.

Step aside, Jon Stewart. There´s a new political satirist in town. Hillary Clinton, the former secretary of state and a potential Democratic presidential candidate, took an apparent shot at Fox News during the Super Bowl on Sunday. (Tweet) The tweet, which had been retweeted more than 30,000 times by the start of the game´s fourth quarter, was apparently a reference to the cable news channel´s coverage, which has been highly critical of Democrats and the September 2012 terror attack on the American consulate in Benghazi, Libya. Clinton has come under fire for the State Department response to the attack.

Hillary Clinton calls on Senate
not to impose more sanctions on Iran
Guardian [UK], by Spencer Ackerman    Original Article

Washington - Hillary Clinton, the former secretary of state and Democratic presidential heir apparent, has urged her former Senate colleagues not to pass new sanctions on Iran, even as she called the Islamic Republic a “threat to global security”. The intervention from Clinton, who holds a commanding lead in a 2016 Democratic primary contest she has not formally entered, represents both a new opportunity for the Obama administration to rescue its major diplomatic overture from a Congress that largely loathes it and a threat of being undermined by a potent and independent force within the Democratic Party.

Louisiana will change protocol,

Times-Picayune [New Orleans, LA], by Lauren McGaughy    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 1/28/2014 1:03:41 PM     Post Reply
With just more than one week to go before convicted killer Christopher Sepulvado is scheduled to die by lethal injection, Louisiana will alter its execution protocol and swap out a one-drug recipe for the same two-drug cocktail used in Ohio executions. In an email statement sent late Monday (Jan. 27), the Louisiana Department of Corrections confirmed it would be changing its execution protocol to allow for the "two-drug protocol" used in Ohio. Previously, the state planned to use just one drug, the barbiturate pentobarbital, to carry out Sepulvado´s Feb. 5 execution. But officials were unable to secure the amount needed to administer a lethal

Justice Department Inquiry Takes Aim

Federal prosecutors are trying to thwart the easy access that predatory lenders and dubious online merchants have to Americans’ bank accounts by going after banks that fail to meet their obligations as gatekeepers to the United States financial system. The Justice Department is weighing civil and criminal actions against dozens of banks, sending out subpoenas to more than 50 payment processors and the banks that do business with them, according to government officials. In the new initiative, called “Operation Choke Point,” the agency is scrutinizing banks both big and small over whether they, in exchange for handsome fees, enable businesses

Washington - The risk that President Obama may be forced to pull all American troops out of Afghanistan by the end of the year has set off concerns inside the American intelligence agencies that they could lose their air bases used for drone strikes against Al Qaeda in Pakistan and for responding to a nuclear crisis in the region. (Snip) If Mr. Obama ultimately withdrew all American troops from Afghanistan, the C.I.A.’s drone bases in the country would have to be closed, according to administration officials, because it could no longer be protected. Their concern is that the nearest alternative bases are too far away for drones to reach the

Cairo - Islamist militants shot down an Egyptian military helicopter in the Sinai Peninsula with a surface-to-air missile over the weekend, raising new alarms about the terrorist insurgency that developed there in response to the military takeover last summer. The attack — described by witnesses, documented in a video released by the militants, and confirmed by three people briefed on the Egyptian government’s investigation — validated longstanding fears that such weapons would spill into Egypt and beyond after the Libyan civil war tore open Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi’s fearsome arsenals. Known as manpads, for man-portable air defense

Washington - The US military launched a missile strike in Somalia on Sunday targeting a suspected Shabaab militant leader, defense officials said. One of the officials said an unmanned drone launched the missile in the late evening hours, but declined to confirm the suspect´s identity or whether the strike was successful. The US government has "been tracking this guy for years," the official told AFP on condition of anonymity. A second US official said the strike in the southeastern port town of Barawe "was against a senior Shabaab commander." "The US is assessing the results of the operation" to determine if the suspect was killed,

Tunis - Tunisia´s national assembly approved the country´s new constitution on Sunday in one of the last steps to establishing full democracy three years after the uprising that toppled autocrat Zine el-Abidine Ben Ali. Just before the constitution vote, Prime Minister Mehdi Jomaa appointed a caretaker cabinet as part of a deal to end a crisis between Tunisia´s Islamist party and its secular opposition until new elections this year. Tunisia´s new constitution and progress contrasts sharply with messy transitions in Libya, Egypt and Yemen which are still caught up in turmoil after ousting their own long-standing leaders in 2011 revolts and

Fort Worth, TX - A Texas hospital removed a pregnant brain-dead woman from life support on Sunday in line with a court order obtained by her husband who argued the fetus she was carrying was withering inside her lifeless body, the family´s lawyers said. Marlise Munoz, who was about 22 weeks pregnant, had been on life support in the hospital in Fort Worth since November 26 after suffering what her husband believes was a pulmonary embolism. Erick Munoz had sought to remove his wife from life support, with the support of her parents, but the hospital had refused, citing a Texas law that says life-sustaining treatment cannot be

When President Obama delivers his State of the Union address Tuesday night, many federal employees will be listening to what the boss-in-chief has to say about them. They shouldn’t get their hopes up too high. Obama has given scant attention to federal employees in his previous State of the Union speeches. Don’t expect this year to be different. One mention was in 2011, when he said: “We’ve frozen the salaries of hard-working federal employees for the next two years.” Two years became three. Of course, everyone with a just cause or a pet project wants a mention in the State of the Union. It is a high-profile address

President Obama, outlining his push Tuesday to bring high-speed Internet access to more U.S. schools, said Americans should demand the same level of technology in learning facilities as they do in coffee shops. “In a country where we expect free Wi-Fi with our coffee, we should definitely demand it in our schools,” Obama said in Adelphi, Md., highlighting $750 million in new commitments from private companies to put digital learning labs in schools. Under his plan, the Federal Communications Commission will also spend $2 billion to connect 20 million students to wireless technologies.

The Congressional Budget Office estimated on Tuesday that the Affordable Care Act will reduce the number of full-time workers by 2.5 million over the next decade. That is mostly a good thing, a liberating result of the law. Of course, Republicans immediately tried to brand the findings as “devastating” and stark evidence of President Obama’s health care reform as a failure and a job killer. It is no such thing. (SNIP) The new law will free people, young and old, to pursue careers or retirement without having to worry about health coverage.

As the commentary around the recent deaths of Nelson Mandela, Amiri Baraka and Pete Seeger made abundantly clear, most of what Americans think they know about capitalism and communism is arrant nonsense. This is not surprising, given our country’s history of Red Scares designed to impress that anti-capitalism is tantamount to treason. In 2014, though, we are too far removed from the Cold War-era threat of thermonuclear annihilation to continue without taking stock of the hype we’ve been made, despite Harry Allen’s famous injunction, to believe. So, here are seven bogus claims people make about communism and capitalism. 1. Only

I don´t believe Woody Allen is a child molester. But when I read Dylan Farrow´s letter in The New York Times accusing her adoptive father of sexual abuse, I didn´t think she was making it up. I believe it´s a scenario she´s come to believe after it was implanted in her impressionistic head as a kid.
