    The fallout from last weekend's New Orleans flash flood continued Thursday. A state of emergency has been declared for Orleans Parish as drainage complications persist with the possibility of heavy rain Thursday and Friday. Here's a rundown of the new information unveiled so far Thursday... Fire damages turbine that powers pumps Much of New Orleans is at high risk of flooding Thursday and Friday because a fire overnight damaged the power source that runs most of the city’s pumps, Mayor Mitch Landrieu said early Thursday. The fire damaged one of five ancient turbines that power the Sewerage & Water Board’s...
  • Newsweek: THE GEORGE W. BUSH WHITE HOUSE ‘LOST’ 22 MILLION EMAILS

    For 18 months, Republican strategists, political pundits, reporters and Americans who follow them have been pursuing Hillary Clinton’s personal email habits, and no evidence of a crime has been found. But now they at least have the skills and interest to focus on a much larger and deeper email conspiracy, one involving war, lies, a private server run by the Republican Party and contempt of Congress citations—all of it still unsolved and unpunished. Clinton’s email habits look positively transparent when compared with the subpoena-dodging, email-hiding, private-server-using George W. Bush administration. Between 2003 and 2009, the Bush White House “lost” 22...

    Trump’s had enough solid numbers this week to expect he’ll win tomorrow night going away, but if you’re desperate for hope and looking around for data to cling to, there’s plenty out there. CNN’s survey earlier this week showed Trump dropping like a rock after his “Bush lied!” performance at the debate, from 40 percent to 31. Two days ago we got a national poll from WSJ/NBC showing Ted Cruz, whose support has been flat in South Carolina this week, nosing past Trump to take a two-point lead. Now here comes the WSJ/NBC again — this time using a different...

    MANCHESTER, New Hampshire---Jeb Bush didn't exactly name names when he made his prediction for which of his fellow candidates would finish in the top three in Iowa, but it was clear who he was talking about. "It's all about him and insulting his way to the presidency is the organizing principle," Bush said of Donald Trump. "The two other candidates that are likely to emerge in Iowa are two people that are backbenchers who have never done anything of consequence in their lives," he added, seemingly of Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz.
  • Did Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton create ISIS? (CNN spoiler alert: BUSH'S FAULT)

    CNN ^ | January 4, 2016 | Peter Bergen
    Donald Trump said on Saturday that President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton "created ISIS." Like many of Trump's charges this one doesn't hold much water. Clinton left the State Department in January 2013 and ISIS wasn't even founded until three months later. But Trump's charge does raise an interesting question, which is how best to assign responsibility for the rise of ISIS, including the issue of how might the Obama administration's exit from Iraq at the end of 2011 have helped smooth the path for ISIS? It began with a thug The rise of ISIS starts...

    GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz said Thursday that the Middle East was more secure when key dictators were still in power, and said too many Democrats and Republicans have supported toppling Middle Eastern governments to the benefit of the United States' enemies."Was the world, in fact, in the Middle East, a more secure place when Saddam Hussein was in power, when Moammar Gadhafi was in power, and when [Bashar] Assad wasn't fighting for his life in Syria?" asked MSNBC's Joe Scarborough."Of course it was," Cruz answered. "That's not even a close call."Cruz said Gadhafi did bad things but had worked...

    Donald Trump says he doesn’t flat out blame former president George W. Bush that the Sept. 11 terror attacks happened on his watch. But he can think of three reasons why one could hold Bush responsible. And, he might add, they are three things a President Trump would do very differently. “You always have to look to the person at the top,” Trump said Saturday in a telephone interview. “Do I blame George Bush? I only say that he was the president at the time, and you know, you could say the buck stops here.” So why might one consider...

    Donald Trump says he's not blaming George W. Bush for 9/11, but he claims that if he'd been president, the attacks never would have happened. In an appearance on "Fox News Sunday," the real estate mogul said that since he's "extremely, extremely tough on immigration" the attackers wouldn't have been in position to commandeer U.S. flights. "So there's a good chance that those people would not have been in our country," Trump said. He took another shot at Jeb Bush for claiming that Bush's brother, the 43rd president, kept the nation safe. "I'm not blaming George Bush," Trump said. "But...

    WASHINGTON (CNN) —Donald Trump implied Friday that former President George W. Bush could share some blame for the September 11, 2001, attack on the World Trade Center, since he was in office at the time. "When you talk about George Bush, I mean, say what you want, the World Trade Center came down during his time," Trump said Friday morning on Bloomberg TV. Bloomberg anchor Stephanie Ruhle interjected, "Hold on, you can't blame George Bush for that," before Trump stood by his comments. "He was president, OK? ... Blame him, or don't blame him, but he was president. The World...

    Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush thinks that a new television ad is "disgraceful" for suggesting that his brother George W. Bush didn't keep the country safe during his presidency. Bush singled out Democratic front-runner Hillary Rodham Clinton in a tweet Sunday, suggesting that her "political machine" was behind a new 30-second ad that will be airing on cable news channels this week.

    Ten years after Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans, President Obama will visit the city to celebrate its recovery. Obama on Aug. 27 will meet with Mayor Mitch Landrieu (D), tour neighborhoods and meet with local residents. He will deliver a speech hailing the city’s rebuilding efforts and how they have helped spur economic innovation, the White House said. The 2005 storm was the costliest natural disaster in U.S. history, flooding 80 percent of the city, killing more than 1,800 people and leaving a million people displaced. New Orleans was still reeling from Katrina’s aftermath when Obama first took office, and...

    The National Interest ^ | May 31, 2015 | Robert W. Merry
    Woodrow Wilson. Here's Why. If you wanted to identify, with confidence, the very worst president in American history, how would you go about it? One approach would be to consult the various academic polls on presidential rankings that have been conducted from time to time since Harvard’s Arthur M. Schlesinger Sr. pioneered this particular survey scholarship in 1948. Bad idea. Most of those surveys identify Warren G. Harding of Ohio as the worst ever. This is ridiculous. Harding presided over very robust economic times. Not only that, but he inherited a devastating economic recession when he was elected in 1920...

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- The U.S. economy went into reverse in the first three months of this year as a severe winter and a widening trade deficit took a harsher toll than initially estimated. The Commerce Department says the overall economy as measured by the gross domestic product contracted at an annual rate of 0.7 percent in the January-March period. The revised figure, even weaker than the government's initial estimate of a 0.2 percent growth rate, reflects a bigger trade gap and slower consumer spending. It marked the first decline since a 2.1 percent contraction in the first three months of...

    In an April 4 article, Liz Sly of the Washington Post Beirut Bureau, with 15 years' experience in the Mid-East including covering the war in Iraq, discusses the origins and leadership of ISIS. The rise of the Islamic State or ISIS has caught many in the West off guard with little knowledge about the organization. We know that ISIS has been exceptionally brutal, showing no mercy or morality in how it has treated civilians as well as prisoners. The first question to be asked in understanding this enemy is "Who runs ISIS?" The simple answer is that ISIS is run...
