    HAZARD, Ky. (AP) — A coalition of left-leaning states and environmental groups are vowing to fight the Trump administration's move to kill an Obama-era effort to limit carbon emissions from coal-fired power plants. Speaking Monday in the coal-mining state of Kentucky, Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt said he would be issuing a new set of rules overriding the Clean Power Plan, the centerpiece of President Barack Obama's drive to curb global climate change. "The war on coal is over," Pruitt declared, adding that no federal agency should ever use its authority to "declare war on any sector of our...

    The Civil Administration Higher Planning Committee is slated to meet next week and give final approval to nearly 4,000 new housing units across Judea and Samaria, including the first new construction in the Jewish community in Hevron in some four decades. On Sunday night, Channel 2 reported that the Netanyahu government has okayed the move, following delays by the Higher Planning Committee, which had originally been scheduled to approve the projects in September. The new wave of construction, totaling 3,829 homes, includes building in communities outside of the so-called “major settlement blocs”, a significant shift from the limits imposed on...

    A lecturer at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) explained on Thursday to her students that US President Donald Trump was to blame for the murderous shooting spree that took place in Las Vegas a week ago. One of the students filmed her statements and passed the footage onto the group Campus Reform, which uploaded the footage. “Right when he got elected, I told my classes, three semesters ago, that some of us won’t be affected by this presidency, but others are going to die,” the lecturer, Tessa Winkelmann, who teaches history, says. “Other people will die because of...

    Dear Mr. Speaker: The epidemic of gun violence in our country continues to challenge the conscience of our nation. Today, our nation woke up to news of the worst mass shooting in our history, claiming the lives of at least 58 innocent men and women in Las Vegas. Nearly 12,000 Americans have been killed by guns with 273 mass shootings in 2017 – one for each day of the year. On average, more than 90 Americans lose their lives to gun violence every day, a daily toll of heartbreak and tragedy in communities across America. Congress has a moral duty...

    Iranian military spokesman Brigadier General Masoud Jazayeri on Saturday told state television that the Iranian military would be holding joint war games with Iraq. The two countries also "agreed on measures to establish border security and receive Iraqi forces that are to be stationed at border posts," he added. Joint war games will be held along their common border. Following Iraqi Kurdistan's vote to become independent on Monday, Iran closed borders to the area and banned transportation of refined oil products to and from Kurdistan. Iraq insisted the Kurds transfer control of both airports and borders to the Iraqi central...
  • Paying the price for breakdown of the country's bourgeois culture

    Philadephia Inquirer ^ | 9/8/17 | Amy Wax & Larry Alexander
    Too few Americans are qualified for the jobs available. Male working-age labor-force participation is at Depression-era lows. Opioid abuse is widespread. Homicidal violence plagues inner cities. Almost half of all children are born out of wedlock, and even more are raised by single mothers. Many college students lack basic skills, and high school students rank below those from two dozen other countries. The causes of these phenomena are multiple and complex, but implicated in these and other maladies is the breakdown of the country’s bourgeois culture. That culture laid out the script we all were supposed to follow: Get married...

    In the recent opinion article “Paying the price for breakdown of the country's bourgeois culture,” published in The Philadelphia Inquirer, law professors Amy Wax and Larry Alexander lament the loss of the “bourgeois cultural hegemony” of the 1950s. They claim that erosion of commitment to marriage, hard work, patriotism, civic-mindedness and respect for authority has produced low male labor force participation, high rates of nonmarital childbearing, subpar educational attainment, an underqualified workforce, substance abuse and rampant urban violence. The downward spiral started in the late 1960s, they argue, with “identity politics” and “multicultural grievance polemics.” This is bad history. Like...

    The Turkish Anadolu news agency reports that Racep Erdogan is considering levying sanctions on the Kurdish population over their upcoming referendum for independence. "As the national security council, we will advise the government on our decision. With it, the cabinet will meet and discuss this. It will both evaluate this and put forth their own stance on what kind of sanctions we can impose, or if we will, but these will not be ordinary," ...
  • The Swiss refuse to pay for the security of Jewish citizens

    “Swiss authorities refuse to provide for the security of Swiss Jewish institutions or to carry the cost thereof. This occurs despite the fact that it is the elementary duty of the state to defend its citizens and inhabitants and to guarantee their basic safety. In Switzerland this obligation is explicitly stated in its 1848/1866 constitution which was last rewritten in April 1999. “Switzerland has also signed and ratified the Convention of the Council of Europe on the Protection of National Minorities. That means that it recognizes the Jewish community as a national minority by law. The Swiss authorities are therefore...

    Link above is glitch of some sort. Won't budge or connect. In July, the Jerusalem District Court gave an unprecedented ruling stating that the Palestinian Authority (PA) was responsible for the unlawful detention and torture of collaborators with Israel since the 1990's, which cleared the way for victims to file a lawsuit against the PA. However, the lawyers representing the plaintiffs - all of whom are Arabs - were faced with a problem: Every human rights organization they turned to for assistance in finding a doctor to determine damages refused to help them. "Every NGO we turned to refused to...

On their way back home, Miller told Kikar Hashabbat, he and his family drove towards Mount Scopus via the mixed neighborhood of A-Tur in eastern Jerusalem.

    A Jewish Home MK has unveiled a plan to bolster Arab emigration from Israel, and ultimately end the Palestinian Authority. MK Bezalel Smotrich, a member of the National Union faction within the Jewish Home party, is calling on the State of Israel to provide financial benefits for Arabs who move abroad. “This is not transfer,” said Smotrich, distancing his proposal from the platforms of MK Rabbi Meir Kahane’s Kach party and slain Tourism Minister Rehavam Zeevi’s Moledet party, which later joined the National Union faction. “Today, some 20,000 Palestinians leave Judea and Samaria every year,” Smotrich told Israel Hayom in...
