  • British ambassador accuses Russia of war crimes

    09/25/2016 8:38:45 PM PDT · by keat
    Russia is partnering with the Syrian government to carry out war crimes, Britain's ambassador to the UN has said. Speaking at an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council, Matthew Rycroft said the push by the US and Russia to stop the fighting is "nearing the end of its life". But UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon urged world powers to redouble their efforts to end Syria's "nightmare". He said: "What excuse is there for anything less than determined action to stop the mayhem? "How much longer will all those with influence allow such cruelty. "I urge all involved to work harder...

    Syrian forces pounded rebel-held eastern Aleppo on Sunday, killing at least 85 people and wounding more than 300 others, an activist group reported. The bombardment destroyed residential centers, overwhelmed hospitals and angered diplomats meeting at the United Nations. "Everyone in Aleppo is depressed," an activist on the ground told CNN. "They don't know what they have done to become targets for warplanes. Fear is clear in the eyes of anyone you see walking the streets of Aleppo. Yesterday I saw a woman walking on the street and crying , no clear reason, just crying."Hundreds of airstrikes have pummeled the city,...

The 27-year-old was gunned down while walking home from a Washington, D.C., bar in the early hours of July 10. Right-wing conspiracy theorists later suggested DNC officials were behind it and that Rich played a role in leaking party emails.

    Washington Times ^ | Sept. 25, 2016 | Carlo Muńoz
    As Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and GOP nominee Donald Trump square off for their first debate of the election season, one question the candidates will tackle is the state of the American military. The Clinton camp has touted America’s military prowess as the best in the world, while the Trump campaign has claimed that the Obama White House has decimated U.S. forces, allowing for the rise of near-peer states such as Russia and China. Top military officials and analysts, however, say the answer lies somewhere in the middle, saying the U.S. military maintains its world superiority but proposed cuts...

    <p>Britain’s vote to leave the EU has been the most cataclysmic global political event this year so far. Over the next 12 months, we may see one or more of the following: a victory of Donald Trump in the US; a defeat of Italy’s government in a referendum over constitutional reforms; a Marine Le Pen victory in the French presidential election; a rightwing anti-immigration and anti-euro party becoming Germany’s largest opposition party. Not all these calamities will happen. But one or two might. And to this list one could add a few minor misfortunes, such as the failure of bilateral trade deals between the EU and the US or Canada.</p>

    Hillary Clinton is clinging to a lead in most national polls, but Donald Trump has been making up ground as they enter the kickoff presidential debate Monday with dramatically different expectations. Mrs. Clinton, a lifelong politician’s wife turned politician, is hoping to show she is the only serious candidate. Mr. Trump, a novice politician who battered his way through the Republican primary race with insults and a lack of policy, will be at pains to prove he can behave on the biggest stage.

To give Tapper credit, he tried to pin Mook down twice but the Clinton campaign manager managed to slip away without giving anything resembling a yes/no answer on this morning's State of the Union on CNN. Before Mook was even finished uttering his first sentence you just knew there was no way he was going to really answer Tapper's question.

    OTTAWA — The National Film Board spent $96,000 on focus groups and workshops for its own staff between November and June, including $75,000 to determine office layouts and workplace strategy — a bill the Canadian Taxpayers Federation calls “ridiculous.” The agency hired consultants at Grisvert Inc. to conduct focus group research on physical office layouts and “organizational transformation” for two new offices in Montreal and Toronto, each project costing $21,000. It also hired Deloitte LLP to consult with NFB employees on a “digital workplace strategy,” costing $33,000. Just under $20,000 more was spent on several workshops held for staff, though...

    The scandal was complex but its outcome potentially simple -- Ukraine tried to fiddle with its murky gas sector and upset its EU partners enough to freeze huge sums of financial help. The fight for control over a profitable company that transports Russia's blue fuel to Europe also exposes the clan warfare and backstabbing that surrounds Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko and hampers Kiev's bid to anchor its ties to the West. Ukrtransgaz is the money-making branch of the former Soviet republic's chronically struggling state oil and natural gas company. It moves about half the gas purchased by Europe from Russia...

    Sen.

Sanders, the runner-up in the Democratic primaries, consistently outperformed Clinton among young voters. As he prepared to exit the race in July, he worked with Clinton to incorporate parts of his college plan into hers. The result is a proposal to make public colleges and universities tuition-free for families with income up to $125,000 a...

Hundreds of Trump supporters showed up to show support for the restaurant owner while just a few Hillary supporters attended their planned protest. The media covered this quite well and there wasn’t any spin. Embarrassing moment for Florida Democrats.

Under this controversial method, voters were taken off the registration rolls after six years of not voting, regardless of whether they remained eligible to vote. ......

    Jose Fernandez -the NL Rookie of the Year in 2013 - came to the United States by boat as a 15-year-old Cuban refugee in 2008. Along the way, he rescued his mother, who had fallen overboard. However, his beloved grandmother, who Fernandez calls a “baseball freak,” was left behind.“She’s the love of my life... my everything,” Fernandez said. The day before winning the Rookie of the Year Award, a shocked Fernandez was reunited with his grandmother in Florida with help from Miami Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria.
  • Wire: Little Public Support for Hillary Clinton — in Liberal Brooklyn Neighborhood

    (REUTERS) One would expect voters from the heavily Democratic Brooklyn neighborhood of Cobble Hill to pick presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in the Nov. 8 general election. Just don’t expect them to advertise it. Like lawns and windowsills in liberal pockets across the country, much of the neighborhood is bereft of pro-Clinton signage in the final weeks before the election. It’s a stark contrast to the 2012 and 2008 campaigns, when President Barack Obama whipped up a frenzy of support from Democrats and his signature “Hope” and “Forward” signs were ubiquitous. The scarcity of lawn and window signs is an indication...

    NEW YORK (AP) — More than half the country fears a Trump presidency. And only about a third of Americans believe he is at least somewhat qualified to serve in the White House. In the final sprint to Election Day, a new Associated Press-GfK poll underscores those daunting roadblocks for Donald Trump as he tries to overtake Hillary Clinton. Moreover, most voters oppose the hard-line approach to immigration that is a centerpiece of the billionaire businessman's campaign. They are more likely to trust Clinton to handle a variety of issues facing the country, and Trump has no advantage on the...

    Three Walmart workers in McDonough, Georgia refused to decorate a “thin blue line” cake for a police officer’s retirement party because they said it was racist. A number of my Georgia readers alerted me to the story and on Saturday night I spoke directly with the police officer’s daughter. She asked that I not divulge her name and I’ve agreed to honor her request. “I was so shocked,” she told me. “I didn’t know what to do or say or anything. I was trying not to lose my temper or make a scene.” “The baker told me the blue line...

    Tens of thousands of people marched through Mexico City on Saturday in opposition to President Enrique Peńa Nieto’s push to legalize same-sex marriage. Organizers of the National Front for the Family estimated at least 215,000 people participated, and while that number could not be immediately confirmed, it was clearly one of the largest protest marches in Mexico in recent years. Dressed mainly in white and carrying white balloons, the marchers held banners warning against same-sex marriage and demanding parents’ right to control sex education in schools. …

    The Sunday before the first presidential debate of 2016 was filled with analysis and speculation about how the candidates were going to perform. It was the same on CNN’s Inside Politics were their panel touted Hillary Clinton’s ability to debate.  Host John King played a clip of Clinton leaving Senator Bernie Sanders speechless after slamming his questions about her speaking fees as a smear, saying it was a clue about how Monday’s debate might turn out. CNN’s Nia-Malika Henderson seemed almost in awe of Clinton’s counter of Sanders, noting his lack of a response wasn’t good for him. “One of...

    While black evangelicals [who make up about 6% of evangelicals] are solidly against the GOP nominee, among white working-class evangelicals, about three in four -- 76% -- say they'd consider voting for Trump.... The majority -- 6 in 10 -- of voters in this group believe the US' better days are in the past and most are concerned that the country is becoming less Christian. Nearly 90% of working class whites who are evangelical Christians believe Christian values are under attack in America today. While most Christian groups -- 73% of mainline Protestants and 61% of Catholics -- share this...
