Associated Press, by Staff

Washington - U.S. intelligence officials are still trying to determine whether Syrian President Bashar Assad unleashed a deadly chemical weapons attack against his people earlier this week. That´s the word from the White House after President Barack Obama met with his national security team Saturday to discuss possible next steps in Syria. Officials have said Obama will decide how to respond once the facts are clear. A statement from the White House about Saturday´s meeting said Obama also received a detailed review of the range of options he has requested for the U.S. and its international

Comments:
"Meeting" early enough for 0bama to still play golf, later. Will that be reported, as our forces are moved closer to Syrian border?

Good to see Barry on top of things on the international stage.
What a wondrous man... able to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory in Iraq, content to send young American men and women to Afghanistan to die for a war in which he has set a timetable for defeat, able to sleep soundly (without an Ambien) through a bloody night in Benghazi in which his U.S. ambassador and three other courageous Americans died, sided with the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt as they attempted to eradicate all Christians in that country (currently flip-flopping in this arena) . His face should be etched on Mount Rushmore. Certainly no one could expect that he could crown his accomplishments with any action in Syria.
Truly wondrous!!

I didn´t know we had a national security team, rather a gathering of incoherent dead beats on the campaign trail handing out Obama phones. Not one of them knows where Syria is located and they think the gas attack was caused by one of the Wookie´s bean salads.

CBS News this evening made a big deal about Barry taking time out of his typical daily play
and Reggie cuddle time to meet for 3 hours ( 3 hours !! )
to discuss Syria using WMD.
3 hours is about 2 hours and 55 minutes longer
than Barry´s typical working day, that´s why it´s such a big deal.

How does President Gutsy Call have time for Syria when he´s so busy holding the real culprits in Benghazi to account? Oh, wait...

If President Gutsy Call was asleep - dreaming about fairness, we safely assume - during the Benghazi attack, where was he when chemical weapons were unleashed in Syria? Trick question: we´ve learned from the hard-hitting MSM that there are not nor can ever be WMDs in the Middle East (except for rogue-state Israeli nukes).

If, as President Gutsy Call has proclaimed, the future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam, isn´t he down for the struggle for Syria´s Islamist future?

With so many tough foreign policy questions these days, it´s comforting to know we have a Leftist in the Oval Office - Leftists have such a proud history of getting things right, and making the right Gutsy Calls.

You have to laugh at the idea that the media takes this so called meeting seriously.We´ve heard two different stories in the BinLaden attack.One that they had to call him off the gold course and secondly,he may have been playng spades with Reggie.

He was too gutless to watch the video feed,in case something went wrong,which shows someone else gave the attack order,not him.But after everything turned out OK he went on a world tour spiking the football about it.

Obama has skated by for 5 years by keeping his fingerprints off anything that could go wrong.He´s not going to take unilateral action against Syria.What he´s trying to do is assemble a CYA crowd of different countries he can pass the buck to if things go wrong.

I don´t think Assad is stupid enough to gas people when he knows it would make a door opener excuse for Obama to attack.

i couldn´t disagree more, #12. i believe Assad has made a calculated decision that Obama, even should he do something, will not act decisively. which is worse for he knows he can pretty much act with impunity now as Nerobama has fiddled his way through the burning of Syria. let this human destruction be on Obama´s conscience since he did nothing of consequence to stop it, along with the innocent soldiers sent to slaughter through his strategy in Afghanistan, along with the foreign service / CIA employees in Benghazi left to die without his opening one eye/lifting one finger to help, etc. let me stop before i ruin my Sunday.

How do we know that it is the Syrian government using the gas. It could be the rebels. In that case, what are we to do? Plus, you have 100,000 Russian troops on the ground. And the US through Benghazi may have been supplying the rebels. The pro Obama muslims are out to overthrow Syria. If you were Assad what would you do....end up like Quadaffi? I don´t think he wants to go that route.
Let these muslims have at one another. America has no business in Syria. Regardless the deaths.
America needs to worry about America and our imminent destruction and deaths inside our own fake borders.

The chemical attack in Syria is surely a momentous act by someone (hard to say who at this point) to draw western and especially US forces into the fight on behalf of the rebels.

I doubt that Assad wanted to draw these forces into the fight. It doesn´t make sense, even if you argue that he´s trying to finesse Obama somehow; too dangerous.

Obviously the Islamic fundamentalist rebels would love increased US involvement and support.

Foreign Al Qaeda fighters would love to get US aid in this fight. This is a great way to arm and fund Al Qaeda in general.

The Russians could have done this in order to deliver a military defeat for Obama and the US to cement their hegemony in the Middle East.

Perhaps the Obama government wants to enter the fight to get US citizens to rally around the sagging President during a time of war.

Regardless of who committed this monstrous crime, it´s clear they want the US to fight, thus we should not.

Might check out who killed Team six by loose lipping and self praising.

The Prez who voting "not present" by his absence "on vacation" LOL, couldn´t be any funnier as a movie (Oh, if only it was just that?)

Mr Prez, sir, just give a grand speech, vote present and go back to golfing. Let the Brits lead, toss in some more trillions we don´t have and then take credit if it works out.

No more American blood (it is all colored the same color--thank God)spilled in the Middle East for a wag the dog, a democrat-type photo op, or to secure the 2016 election for another Alinsky student, Hill and co-prez redux, Bill.

Harry Truman made a choice when the buck stopped at that desk and leaders led for America and Americans of either political party, he choose a million enemy deaths (that weren´t required)to the death od one more American. (He didn´t mention any color and desegregated, or someone did in 1948 (?) )

With his popularity figures sinking into the low forties Barry play this Syria thing for maximum political advantage to himself to the exclusion of all other concerns. He knows anytime the American military is brought to the fore, American citizens usually rally to their leader. He will also be concentrating on minimizing risk, risk to him politically, that is.

National Interest and Good of the Country are not terms in his playbook. His Interest and His Good will out.

Oklahoma bans local wage hikes
Washington Post, by Reid Wilson    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 4/16/2014 3:53:16 PM     Post Reply
Cities and counties won’t be allowed to raise the minimum wage under a law signed Monday by Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin (R). Under the new law, which passed the state legislature on party-line votes earlier this year, cities would be prohibited from raising the minimum wage above the $7.25 federal mark, and they would be prevented from requiring employers to provide sick days to their employees. Backers of the new law said differing wages in different cities would be a hardship for businesses. In a statement, Fallin said different wage laws would hurt job creation. In recent years, cities and localities across the country have unilaterally

Rev. Al Sharpton’s Easter message:

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,

An orange-black ribbon holds

As pro-Russia protests spread in eastern Ukraine, a strip of striped orange-and-black fabric has become as ubiquitous as the armed men in unmarked military fatigues. Its name is the Ribbon of Saint George. Imbued with history, it’s a powerful symbol in the ongoing information battle over Ukraine. For Russians it´s a mark of allegiance to the state – both the fearsome, expansionist Russian state of old and its modern successor under President Vladimir Putin. When pro-Russia rallies took place last December, seeking to rival the Maidan demonstrations in Kiev, very few ribbons were seen.

UNICEF’s new campaign, “Poo2Loo,” targets India’s public defecation problem with a series of music videos, pranks and advertisements featuring a giant feces mascot. According to the campaign, 620 million Indians are defecating in public every day. “That’s half the population dumping over 65 million kilos of poo out there every day. If this poo continues to be let loose on us, there will be no escaping the stench of life threatening infections, diseases and epidemics,” the Poo2Loo website says, while asking visitors to sign a pledge to ending public defecation.

Former White House press secretary Dee Dee Myers has been named head of Warner Bros. corporate communications, replacing longtime studio executive Sue Fleishman. Myers, who served as White House press secretary during President Clinton´s first term, will begin work at Burbank-based Warner Bros. on Sept. 2. Fleishman, who had worked at Warner Bros. for nine years, stepped down from her post this week. She oversaw communications for Warner Bros. during a two-year corporate succession race that ended in January 2013 with the announcement that Kevin Tsujihara would succeed Barry Meyer as chief executive and

Robert Rizzo, the city administrator who oversaw an era of corruption and graft in one of Los Angeles County’s poorest cities, was sentenced Wednesday to 12 years in state prison. Rizzo stared straight ahead, his palms pressed against the defense table as the sentence was read. “Mr. Rizzo, you did some very, very bad things for a very long time,” Superior Court Judge Kathleen Kennedy told the former Bell city administrator. The judge said Rizzo transformed himself into a “godfather of sorts” in Bell, an all-powerful ruler who plundered the city’s treasury to pay lavish salaries and dole out loans to fellow employees.

Iran considers ban on vasectomies
in drive to boost birthrate
Guardian [UK], by Saeed Kamali Dehghan    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 4/16/2014 1:51:54 PM     Post Reply
Iran´s parliament is seeking a ban on vasectomies and a tightening of abortion rules as the country moves away from its progressive laws on family planning in an attempt to increase the birthrate. Two decades after Iran initiated an effective birth control programme, including subsidised male sterilisation surgeries and free condom distribution, the country is to make a U-turn. Last year the supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, criticised existing policy on contraception, describing it as an imitation of western lifestyle. The 74-year-old has urged the government to tackle what he believes to be an ageing population and to double the

Climate change causing fish to

Climate change’s latest casualty appears to be fish — or more specifically, fish brains — as researchers say the carbon dioxide that’s being absorbed into the ocean is causing the scaly creatures to lose their survival instincts. In other words, the fish are losing their minds, The Daily Mail reported. The acid from atmospheric carbon dioxide seeps into sea waters, dissolves and ultimately lowers the pH balance, researchers said. The acidic waters then hamper the fishes’ sensory systems, so they’re not able to distinguish between smells any longer, the scientists went on. When the acid levels get really high, the fish lose their

It’s always a hassle getting called for jury duty. This is something all of us can agree on. Now, there’s a dog out there who can also agree on this, because she too got called in to fulfill her civic duty. Yes, really. Last week, New Jersey’s Cumberland County sent a jury summons to resident IV Griner. But IV Griner is not a person. She’s a German Shepherd. Her owner, Barrett Griner, tells CBS Philly that he figured out the mishap quickly, but it was still pretty funny. His full name is Barrett Griner IV, so a computer likely mistook the roman numerals for his first name before the summons was mailed out.

Pistorius Trial to Adjourn

Pretoria, South Africa — The judge in the trial of Oscar Pistorius, the disabled track star accused of murdering his girlfriend, said on Wednesday that proceedings would be postponed after hearings end on Thursday, until May 5, two days before South Africa’s national election. The prosecution had sought the postponement on Tuesday to avoid scheduling conflicts with other cases. The Pistorius trial has already run far beyond the three weeks scheduled when it opened in early March, and has generated 2,000 pages of detailed testimony, Judge Thokozile Matilda Masipa said. While May 5 may not be a “suitable” date because

Iraq Shuts Down the Abu Ghraib
Prison, Citing Security Concerns
New York Times, by Duraid Adnan & Tim Arango    Original Article

Baghdad - The Iraqi government said Tuesday that it had closed the Abu Ghraib prison, the site of a notorious prisoner abuse scandal during the American occupation of Iraq, because of fears that it could be overrun by Sunni insurgents who have gained strength over the last year. In a statement, the Justice Ministry said it had moved 2,400 prisoners to other high-security prisons in central and northern Iraq, adding that Abu Ghraib’s location — west of central Baghdad and on the edge of insurgent-controlled areas of Anbar Province — had become a “hot zone.” It was not clear whether the closing was permanent, or if the prison might reopen

Did GM Reject Safer Ignition Switch
Design in 2001 Because of Cost?

Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 4/16/2014 11:12:17 AM     Post Reply
Newly released internal GM documents reveal that the company in 2001 considered -- and rejected – an ignition switch design that two prominent safety advocates say could have avoided the problem that led the automaker to recall millions of vehicles this year. The company’s decision to reject the safer switch was motivated by cost, the advocates say. They say GM documents show that design was the same one GM quietly began providing years later, in 2006, as a replacement part, and is now beginning to add to all recalled vehicles. (Snip) In the letter, Ditlow and Claybrook say that “obscure but ‘smoking gun’” documents released

The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast
