President Barack Obama authorized the resupply of Syrian Kurds and the Arab-Syrian opposition as part of a strategy to put pressure on ISIS from the north and strengthen the border, according to two senior administration officials. The approval came at a National Security Council meeting on Thursday. CNN reported over the weekend that the President also emphasized to his team that the U.S. would continue to support the Syrian opposition as Russia enters the war-torn country. read more

So it is with this president. It's not enough for him to stake and defend his positions. He wants you to know that he thinks deeper, sees further, knows better, operates from a purer motive. His preferred method for dealing with disagreement is denigration. If Republicans want a tougher line in Syria, they're warmongers. If Hillary Clinton thinks a no-fly zone is a good idea, she's playing politics: "There is obviously a difference," the president tut-tutted about his former secretary of state's position, "between running for president and being president." read more

Paris's "day without cars" last week led to such a dramatic drop in both air and noise pollution that the mayor's office is now planning more vehicle-free days in the French capital. Airparif, which measures city pollution levels, said levels of nitrogen dioxide dropped by up to 40% in parts of the city on Sunday September 27. There was almost one-third less nitrogen dioxide pollution on the busy Champs Elyees than on a similar Sunday. read more

My article "I'm A Pedophile, But Not a Monster" was published last week and it has been a whirlwind since. I've spent days doing radio interviews, even an appearance on TV (HLN's Dr. Drew on Call), but mainly just answering the hundreds of emails that have poured in.

The distribution of these 435 seats is not static: they are reapportioned every ten years to reflect the population changes found in the census. That reallocation math is based on the relative "whole number of persons in each state," as the formulation in the 14th Amendment has it. When this language was inserted into the U.S. Constitution, the concept of an "illegal immigrant," as the term is defined today, had no meaning. Thus the census counts illegal immigrants and other noncitizens equally with citizens. Since the census is used to determine the number of House seats apportioned to each state, those states with large populations of illegal immigrants and other noncitizens gain extra seats in the House at the expense of states with fewer such "whole number of persons." read more


I think you are being a bit naive if you think Russia is gonna clean up the ME by bombing ISIS into submission.


They aren't.... they are going in there for surgical special teams excursions.

Can't disagree with that. Americans are 5% of the global population and consume 20 to 30 percent of global resources, and think they are entitled to it...forever.

Its certainly been a great run, wouldn't you like it to continue?

Address more of MadBombers excellent post......
