Shots fired from Syria hit the central Israeli-occupied Golan Heights overnight, a military spokeswoman said Monday morning, causing no harm or damage. According to the spokeswoman, the shots were from small arms, and “most likely were stray bullets, we don’t know if it was intentional.” The spokeswoman would not confirm local media reports Article source: http://feeds.feedblitz.com/~/41352214/0/alternet_breaking_news~Syria-gunfire-hits-Israeloccupied-Golan

In the fun-house mirror of the present, the contours of the twentieth century have assumed a strange symmetry. It begins and ends with imperialism. The century opens with the West plundering the Rest, until one Asian nation, Japan, joins the action and becomes an empire itself. In the century’s last decade, the pattern repeats: the forces of liberal capitalism are again as dominant as ever, only this time China is the apt pupil of Western rapacity. The way historians speak of the present in terms of “imperialism,” ”anti-imperialism” and “the rise of Asia” makes the burst of decolonization after World Article source: http://www.thenation.com/article/174366/empire-states-pankaj-mishra
Fox News Sunday selected Victoria Toensing and Joseph diGenova, attorneys who represented witnesses at a Republican-led hearing on the attacks at a U.S. diplomatic facility in Benghazi, Libya, for its “power players of the week,” an unfortunate choice given that both individuals misled Fox News and its viewers about allegations of threats and intimidation against their clients and about efforts by the administration to prevent their clients from testifying.

Spam hit grocery shelves in 1937, distinguishing itself from other brands of ready-to-eat canned ham with a clutchable can size and relatively short ingredient list. (Ironically, given its current reputation, Spam was intended to be a higher-quality alternative to the other tinned mystery meats on the market.) When war broke out a few years later, the U.S. military distributed it to GIs since it was inexpensive and filling, didn’t spoil, and shipped easily. “For every soldier who swore he would never eat Spam again and stuck to it, there seemed to be two who became Spam customers as a Article source: http://feeds.slate.com/click.phdo?i=a05d0b2893c6b41207a2ff80e33eacb5

LG: Now you’ve found the Majorana, what’s next? LK: Usually, if you exchange two particles, their quantum state changes by 1 or -1. If you change it once more, it goes back to the same old state. In contrast, the Majoranas have different phase factors, so you only go back to your old state by switching four times, instead of two. There’s no other particle in nature that we know of which has this property. So it’s not just a new particle; it also opens up a new class of particles.

President Barack Obama has an important new ally as emboldened Republicans work to derail his agenda: John McCain. The shift is striking: The 2008 rivals never got along throughout Obama’s first term in office. McCain has been Obama’s chief tormentor on issues ranging from the budget to Benghazi, tartly saying in late 2010 that the two men had “no relationship.” Continue Reading Yet during one of Obama’s toughest times as president, there was McCain, sitting down last week with him in the Oval Office for a private Article source: http://feeds.politico.com/click.phdo?i=2b49d350be66e6cc02f92217d6243241

Enjoy!!!”Lynne J Baecker Find out more and pick up a copy of this DVD for your family! CLICK HERE Americans learned a lot of unsettling things about their government in the past week. They learned that the IRS unfairly targeted conservative groups and the president’s political opponents. They learned that the Obama administration executed a sweeping search of reporters’ telephone records . And they learned that the White House repeatedly misrepresented its involvement in re-writing information it shared with the American people about the terrorist attack in Benghazi. A lot of questions are being raised as a result of these revelations and, as Speaker Boehner said at a press conference today, “This House will stop at nothing to get to the American people the answers and the accountability that they expect.” Here’s the full text of Boehner’s remarks: “Listen, jobs is our primary focus, but while we’re focused on that, we’re also focused on holding this administration accountable. Our committees are working overtime to uncover the truth about what happened in Libya. And they’re trying to get to the bottom of what happened in the IRS scandal. “You know, public service requires humility. And everyone in public office needs to be constantly reminded that they serve the American people – and it’s not the other way around. Americans should never be targeted or harassed by their government for their political beliefs. And if reporters’ telephone calls are being monitored, the government better have a clear, and convincing reason for doing so. And when…Americans are killed abroad, the government should tell the truth – not shade it or stonewall it for partisan purposes. “Our system requires the bonds of trust between the American people and their government. And those bonds, once broken, are very hard to repair. Nothing dissolves the bonds between the people and their government like the arrogance of power here in Washington. That’s what the American people are seeing today from the Obama administration: remarkable arrogance. “This House will stop at nothing to get to the American people the answers and the accountability that they expect. But the best way to repair this damage is for the administration to come forward with the truth – the whole truth – so that the American people will have all of the facts.” The House Ways & Means Committee will hold a hearing tomorrow on the IRS’ admitted practice of targeting conservative groups, followed by a hearing in the Oversight & Government Reform Committee next week. The Oversight & Government Reform Committee heard from the Benghazi whistleblowers last week, and, as Boehner has said, “Congress is going to continue to investigate this issue using all the resources at our disposal.” House Republicans’ focus on oversight and accountability helped bring these issues to light, and it will continue to be a top priority.

CLICK HERE “Americans need common-sense solutions to help create jobs and they need accountability from their government, and the House is working to give them both,” Speaker Boehner said at a press conference today, previewing this week’s House vote to fully repeal ObamaCare and highlighting the ongoing investigation into the administration’s response to the terrorist attack in Benghazi. On tomorrow’s House vote to fully repeal ObamaCare – it’s third since 2011 – Boehner said: “Our jobs plan has been out there, and we’re continuing to focus on it. This week, we’ll be repealing ObamaCare. Why? Because it’s going to raise the cost of health care, raise the cost of health insurance, reduce access to the American people, and continues to get in the way of employers hiring new workers.” Noting that Americans “deserve the truth, and fairness from their government,” Boehner also reiterated his call for the Obama administration to release all of the e-mails relating to its handling of the Benghazi terrorist attack, and the information it shared with the American people in its aftermath. Here’s more: “I want to applaud Chairman Issa and the Government Reform Committee for all of their work last week on Benghazi – trying to get to the bottom of what happened. The administration could make this a lot easier for all Americans by coming forward with e-mails that they’ve shown us, in some cases, but have not turned over to us.
