AP сообщило, что 20 января, в последние часы у власти, БХО подарил палестинцам 221 млн долларов.
Officials say the Obama administration in its waning hours defied Republican opposition and quietly released $221 million to the Palestinian Authority that GOP members of Congress had been blocking.
Члены элитного гольф-клуба Woodmont Country Club в Роквилле, штате Мэриленд, большинство из которых евреи, намерены отказать в приеме уходящему президенту США Бараку Обаме. Данное решение вызвано отказом Обамы наложить вето на антиизраильскую резолюцию в Совете безопасности ООН.
Следует отметить, что, по иронии судьбы, Woodmont Country Club, ныне один из самых престижных в США, был основан в 1913 году евреями округа Колумбия, которых в то время не пускали в другие клубы Америки.
Плата за инициацию /кто это переводил???/ в этом престижном клубе составляет $80.000 и $9.673 – ежегодные взносы. Ранее члены Woodmont Country Club намеревались предоставить Обаме бесплатный /!!!/ вход в этот закрытый клуб вопреки правилам, однако сегодня это предложение вызывает разногласия.
However, today, we have been told by senior member of the US Forest Service and Department of Agriculture that people “above the department”, which I presume means the White House, plan to order the Forest Service to needlessly and illegally close all private operations. I can only assume their intention is to artificially increase the cost of the shutdown as some sort of political ploy.
2. Visitors unaware of how the farm is run are apt to conclude that the government shutdown, now two days old, is directly responsible for the farm’s closing. But Eberly sent a note Wednesday morning to the park’s email list. In the email, Eberly says, “For the first time in 40 years, the National Park Service (NPS) has finally succeeded in closing the Farm down to the public. In previous budget dramas, the Farm has always been exempted since the NPS provides no staff or resources to operate the Farm.”
The Claude Moore Colonial Farm, Eberly says, has thrived even as the federal government has treated it with “benign neglect” for decades. That benign neglect would serve it better than the barricades now surrounding it.
The suits were filed June 11 by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, which last year issued new guidelines that cautioned against rejecting minority applicants who have committed a crime and recommended businesses eliminate policies that “exclude people from employment based on a criminal record.”
"Recent college graduates with entry-level jobs who are struggling to pay off student loan debt could see their premiums increase on average between 145 and 189 percent,” the report said. “Some studies estimate young adults could experience premium increases as high as 203 percent. Any increase, let alone tripling current costs, could break the bank for young adults who have just started out on their own."
an urgent request from the CIA annex for military back-up during the attack on the U.S. consulate and subsequent attack several hours later on the annex itself was denied by the CIA chain of command
CIA spokesman: "No one at any level in the CIA told anybody not to help those in need; claims to the contrary are simply inaccurate. ”
In an unusually direct and at times tense interview with Denver local news station KUSA, President Barack Obama on Friday admitted on two occasions that he doesn’t know whether the administration denied requests for military assistance by the U.S. Embassy
Woods says that shaking President Obama’s hands at his son’s memorial service was “like shaking hands with a dead fish.”
Anger over the Benghazi attack is mounting in Congress
FEW things annoy Poles more than being blamed for the crimes committed by the Nazi occupiers of their homeland. For many years, Polish media, diplomats and politicians have tried to persuade outsiders to stop using the phrase "Polish death camps" as a shorthand description of Auschwitz and other exemplars of Nazi brutality and mass murder.
Unfortunately this seems to have escaped Barack Obama's staff. In what was meant to be an encomium for the heroic wartime work of Jan Karski,a Polish resistance hero who vainly tried to alert the world to the Holocaust, Mr Obama (presumably accidentally) let slip the phrase "Polish death camp".
Even in the middle of the night, the reaction in Warsaw was incendiary.

1. The U.S. President is today having a coveted private meeting with President Ali Bongo of Gabon in the Oval Office despite his appalling track record.
Bongo’s family has ruled the impoverished African nation with an iron fist for five decades and have used its oil riches to fund a life of outrageous luxury.
Meanwhile one third of people in Gabon live on less than $2 a day and thousands starve to death each year or are forced to pick through garbage to find food.
Investigations have revealed the Bongos have dozens of luxury homes in places like the French Riviera and a $120million 14-bedroom townhouse in Paris.
2. President Obama was effusive in his praise for the Special Relationship when he visited London recently, but his administration continues to slap Britain in the face over the highly sensitive Falklands issue. Washington signed on to a “draft declaration on the question of the Malvinas Islands” passed by unanimous consent by the General Assembly of the Organisation of American States (OAS) at its meeting in San Salvador yesterday, an issue which had been heavily pushed by Argentina. In doing so, the United States sided not only with Buenos Aires, but also with a number of anti-American regimes including Hugo Chavez’s Venezuela and Daniel Ortega’s Nicaragua.
