Obama: Feds with Oklahoma
‘every step’ of the way

Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 5/26/2013 10:23:41 PM

Moore, Okla. - President Barack Obama visited tornado-devastated Moore, Okla., Sunday, consoling people staggered by the loss of life and property and promising that the government will be behind them “every step of the way.” “I’m just a messenger here,” the president said, saying “folks are behind you” across America. He offered moral and monetary support in the wake of the monstrous EF5 tornado that killed 24 people, including 10 children, last Monday afternoon. Standing with Gov. Mary Fallin and other state and federal officials, Obama noted a substantial rebuilding job ahead and said that

Comments:
"We will use the full weight of the IRS to make sure that only "blue" blooded Americans are getting their federal benefits in a timely way. Our heart may go out to you, but not our checkbook. Simply put, if you didn´t vote for me [and we know who you are], expect workers not to speak English, as we are trying to fulfill the dreams of many here illegally to seek gainful employment and fast-track citizenship." - [Translation].

Don´t expect a Chris Christie act from the Oklahoma Governor. Just get out of town and let them recover. While your AG gets indicted for perjury.

Going by the article alone, this may be the first and only time Obama has made public statements that weren´t cringeworthy to normal Americans.

Boy, it didn´t take long for us all to become dependent on the feds to recover from natural disasters. It hasn´t always been this way.

Almost no one carries earthquake insurance in California anymore. Why bother when we know the rest of the country will bail us out. Sounds like it´s true for flood insurance elsewhere.

Ukrainian authorities have dismantled an armed underground group they claim was plotting against the Kiev-based government and planned to launch an attack in a few days, that nation´s top security agency announced Saturday. (Snip) Hagel, speaking to reporters ahead of his arrival in Japan, was asked what reassurance the United States could give to its allies in light of Russia´s recent actions. "I think any time you have a nation, Russia in this case, try to impose its will to define international boundaries and violate territorial integrity and sovereignty of a nation by force, all of the world takes note of that," he said.

A frightening map of

On Thursday, the Justice Department announced the biggest environmental settlement in history with Anadarko Petroleum, reaching a $5.15 billion deal to clean up dozens of sites across the United States and compensate more than 7,000 people living with the effects of the contamination. The accord arose out of a lawsuit in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court concerning Tronox, a paint materials manufacturer and unit of the company Kerr-McGee, an Anadarko subsidiary. Anadarko bought Kerr-McGee after it had spun off Tronox, but plaintiffs and Justice Dept. officials charged this was merely an attempt to avoid taking financial

Canada’s wounded warriors are now being told they cannot criticize military leadership if they want to receive medical treatment, a top Canadian newspaper reported Wednesday. Injured troops are first being told they must sign a form that requires they do not discuss “your views on any military subject” and should not “write anything that might discourage others or make them dissatisfied with their conditions or their employment,” The National Post reported. A top Canadian military officer, Col. Gerry Blais, director of the nation’s casualty support management, said the form is for troops’ own good.

Ukraine moves to crack Russia´s

It´s not just natural gas that keeps Ukraine under Russia´s thumb. Almost all the fuel for Ukraine´s 15 nuclear reactors comes from Russia, too. But just as Ukraine is struggling to diversify away from Russian natural gas, it is also eager to break Moscow´s virtual monopoly over its nuclear fuel. Pennsylvania-based Westinghouse Electric Co. told various media outlets this week it will renew a contract with Ukraine´s Energoatom that will extend and expand its flow of nuclear fuel to the struggling nation. The deal is valued at $100 million. "Based on discussions as late as last night [April 3], we will make a deal and increase fuel deliveries this

Mazda Recalling Cars
Due to Danger From Insect

Detroit - Mazda is recalling 42,000 Mazda6 cars in the U.S. because spiders can weave a web in a vent hose and cause the fuel tank to crack. The recall involves cars from the 2010 through 2012 model years equipped with 2.5-liter engines. The yellow sac spider, which is attracted to hydrocarbons, builds webs that cause pressure to build in the fuel tank. That increases the risk of fuel leaks and fire. Mazda recalled cars in 2011 for the same problem. It put covers on the vent line, but has found spiders can get past them. Mazda will update the cars' software for free beginning this month to ensure that the fuel tank pressure doesn't build up.

It is yet to be established whether it is related to the missing jet.

Muslim moms and dads in Dearborn, Mich. are upset after students received flyers promoting an Easter Egg hunt at a local Presbyterian church. The parents say the egg hunt violates the U.S. Constitution. The Muslims told the Detroit Free-Press that they were concerned about the religious implications of Cherry Hill Presbyterian Church’s “Eggstravaganza!” They were also troubled by images of a bunny rabbit. “It really bothered my two kids,” parent Majed Moughni, told the newspaper. “My son was like, ‘Dad, I really don’t feel comfortable getting these flyers, telling me to go to church.

Milford, CT - Two British men who pleaded guilty to raising money for al Qaeda and the Taliban were denied their bid on Friday to gain access to secret documents about a witness whose testimony could have a major impact on how long they spend in prison. The pair, 39-year-old Babar Ahmad and 34-year-old Syed Talha Ahsan, have argued in papers filed in U.S. District Court in New Haven, Connecticut, that they have a right to more information on the witness, British citizen Saajid Badat. According to U.S. prosecutors, Badat was recruited into al Qaeda as a result of Ahmad's work and went on to play a role in the attempt by "shoe

Quito, Ecuador - Ecuador´s Tungurahua volcano has spewed a 6-mile (10-kilometer) column of ash after a powerful, five-minute explosion that shot pyroclastic material onto its northern and northwestern flanks. Ecuador´s geophysics institute said Friday´s blast occurred at 6:10 p.m. local time and was followed by a second, four-minute explosion and five lesser tremors. The 16,480-foot (5,023-meter) volcano, nearly 90 miles (140 kilometers) south of Quito, revived on Feb. 1, with eruptions that affected a third of Ecuador´s provinces and temporarily closed a regional airport. Tungurahua has been erupting sporadically since 1999.

If you drive one of the 2.6 million General Motors cars recalled because of a faulty ignition switch, you’re probably eager for the part to be replaced. (Snip) While G.M. has said they are safe as long as extra items are removed from the key ring, some consumer advocates and lawmakers have urged G.M. to warn owners not to drive the cars until they are fixed, saying that they still pose a danger. On Friday, a federal judge in Texas refrained from ruling on an emergency motion seeking to require the automaker to do that, saying she needed more time. G.M. had announced the recall of 1.62 million small cars from model years 2007 and earlier,

The chief spokesman for Gov.

The appearance of the spokesman, Michael Drewniak, a loyal lieutenant who previously served as Mr. Christie’s spokesman when he was the United States attorney for New Jersey, was confirmed by an official with knowledge of the proceedings. While it has been previously reported that a grand jury was meeting in the case, it was the first confirmation that a grand jury was interviewing witnesses, and not only reviewing subpoenaed

Sarah Palin is not only celebrating David Letterman’s just-announced retirement, she says she hopes it might start a trend. “It’s cool, you know, out with the old, in with the new,” the former Alaska governor said on Fox News’s “Hannity” on Thursday night, after Letterman announced he would retire in 2015 that afternoon. The conservative darling famously clashed with Letterman in 2009 after he told a joke about her daughter that she said crossed a line. He later apologized. Speaking from Florida where Palin was fundraising for upstart Republican congressional candidate Lizbeth Benacquisto, Palin said she hoped Letterman’s decision

The State Department has no idea what happened to $6 billion used to pay its contractors. In a special “management alert” made public Thursday, the State Department’s Inspector General Steve Linick warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years. The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors. The lack of oversight “exposes the department to significant financial risk,” the auditor said. “It creates conditions conducive to fraud, as corrupt individuals may attempt

In his opening statement during highly anticipated testimony Wednesday on Benghazi, former CIA deputy director Michael Morell claimed to be an intelligence professional who was willing to lay out the facts -- no matter how damaging. "I take very seriously the allegations about how the CIA in general and about how I in particular handled the analysis and the talking points," Morell told the House Intelligence Committee, in his first public testimony on the Benghazi attacks. "The ethical code under which intelligence officers carry out their responsibilities calls for total objectivity." But Morell´s own testimony would appear to undercut that

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

Last month in an interview on CBS’s Face the Nation, Romney himself ruled out the possibility of a 2016 run and said he was instead focused on who to get behind in that contest. Coulter, however, wishes otherwise. “Well, don´t tell him but I´m planning on giving Mitt Romney a little more time to rest -- flying out, kidnapping him and depriving him of sleep, food and

President Barack Obama contended that the government did not “make a hard sell” for Obamacare, despite his administration spending nearly $700 million to promote the law. “We didn’t make a hard sell,” Obama said in the Rose Garden on Tuesday, praising the 7.1 million sign ups for the Affordable Care Act. “We didn’t have billions of dollars of commercials like some critics did.” However, last July the Associated Press reported that Obamacare’s marketing campaign would cost at least $684 million. Taxpayer funding went to all 50 states in efforts to encourage people to enroll, including nearly $28 million for the

It´s the end of an era: David Letterman announced Thursday that he´s retiring from CBS´ "Late Show" sometime next year. He made that announcement during the taping of his program this afternoon. The late-night talk show host, who will celebrate his 67th birthday next week, made his debut on the "Late Show" on Aug. 30, 1993. Letterman got his television start in 1978 on the CBS variety series "Mary," starring Mary Tyler Moore.

Those networks did not, however, accommodate the White House’s request. “Three sources familiar with the request confirmed the White House asked for the prime time slot in their effort both to emphasize a bright moment following the challenging roll out and, more important, to try to reintroduce the country to a law that remains unpopular,”
