    ‘ John Boehner Wake Me Up When September Ends ‘ 

    #AceWorldNews – July 25 – Interesting quotes from columnists and news sources: BOEHNER: NO CR UNTIL SEPTEMBER. Cue the music, Wake me up, when September ends.

    That’s right folks, House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) said that the House won’t take up the CR this month and instead will wait until September.

    The government will shut down on Oct. 1 without a funding bill. How short will the CR be? “I imagine it will go until early December,” Boehner told reporters at his presser today on the Hill.

    That means we could be doing the same thing just in time for the holidays. Cristina Marcos @ The Hill with the recap: http://bit.ly/1kZi0D0.

    #AceWorldNews – July 25 – Interesting quotes from columnists and news sources:HOW IT PLAYED IN RUSSIA, via columnist Ivan Sukhov for The Moscow Times: “The most frightening possible result of sanctions is that the West could nail shut the ‘window to Europe’ that Russia has been labouring hard to develop ever since Peter the Great first built it at tremendous cost in the early 18th century.”

    HUMAN RIGHTS WATCH: ‘ ISIS IS Killing, Kidnapping and Threatening Religious and Ethnic Minorities in Mosul ‘ 

    #AceWorldNews – IRAQ (Mosul) – July 25 – The Islamic State of Iraq and Sham (ISIS) is killing, kidnapping, and threatening religious and ethnic minorities in and around the northern Iraqi city of Mosul.

    ​Since capturing Mosul on June 10, 2014, the armed Sunni extremist group has seized at least 200 Turkmen, Shabaks, and Yazidis, killed at least 11 of them, and ordered all Christians to convert to Islam, pay “tribute” money, or leave Mosul.

    On June 29, ISIS abducted two nuns and three Christian orphans, whom it held for 15 days. Around that same time, ISIS issued orders barring Yazidi and Christian employees, as well as ethnic Kurds, from returning to their government jobs in Mosul, two regional government officials and a priest told Human Rights Watch.

    Virtually all Turkmen and Shabaks – tens of thousands of families – have fled their communities near Mosul as a result of ISIS raids, in which the fighters seize local men and pillage homes and places of worship, residents of those villages said. Mosul’s few remaining Christian families also have fled, local priests said.

    “ISIS should immediately halt its vicious campaign against minorities in and around Mosul,” said Sarah Leah Whitson, Middle East director at Human Rights Watch.

    “Being a Turkman, a Shabak, a Yazidi, or a Christian in ISIS territory can cost you your livelihood, your liberty, or even your life.”

    ‘ Graham Philips RT Contributor Has Been Deported to UK After Being Arrested at Donetsk Airport ‘ 

    #AceBreakingNews – UKRAINE – July 25 – Graham Phillips, an RT contributor covering the conflict in eastern Ukraine, has been deported to the UK, following his arrest at Donetsk airport on Tuesday night, local media said citing Ukraine’s security service (SBU).

    ​Phillips, who was previously detained by Ukrainian forces for two days in May, will not be allowed to re-enter Ukraine for three years, Interfax Ukraine and UkraNews website reported.

    Despite cautions from RT that the area was too dangerous to work in, the 35-year-old journalist decided to film fire exchanges between government forces and militants just a few hundred meters away from the airport in Donetsk alongside a stringer for ANSA News, Vadim Aksyonov.

    The airport building, occupied by anti-Kiev forces since the start of the conflict, has been a key flashpoint as government forces have attempted to re-take control of the key eastern Ukrainian city.

    Aksyonov, who was released on Thursday, said that pro-Kiev troops seized them, placed bags on their heads, before bundling them into a car and dumping them in a prison cell. The Ukrainian journalist said that both he and Phillips were beaten and tortured by security agents.

    ‘ House Republicans Move Forward with Reduced Border Funding of Less than $1 Billion ‘ 

    #AceBreakingNews – UNITED STATES (Washington) – July 25 – House Republicans are moving toward a vote on a slimmed-down border bill that would provide President Obama with less than $1 billion in funding to deal with the influx of child migrants.

    While the details are still being finalized, Republicans emerged from a private meeting Friday saying that there was an overwhelming sense that the House should pass some sort of legislation to address the border crisis before the August recess.

    “Our Republican conference carefully and thoughtfully considered where the country is, what needs to be done, and I believe that we will act,” said House Rules Committee Chairman Pete Sessions (R-Texas). “There’s no one in there that didn’t recognize that we have to address this problem.”

    ' Senior White House Advisers Taking Serious Possible Impeachment of President Obama ' 

    #AceBreakingNews – UNITED STATES (Washington) – July 25 – Senior White House advisor’s are taking very seriously the possibility that Republicans in Congress will try to impeach President Obama, especially if he takes executive action to slow deportations.

    Dan Pfeiffer, a senior advisor to Obama, said Friday that White House is taking the prospect of impeachment in the GOP-controlled House more seriously than many others in Washington, who see it as unlikely.

    Pfeiffer noted that former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, who has a large following among Tea Party conservatives, has called for Obama’s impeachment and a large block of the GOP’s base favours it.

        Only if God lets this happen – There are more things in Heaven and Earth than any mere mortals understand. Faith will set this world free not idol words lacking wisdom and respect of one that is greater than all of us. It is only by following the beast that people will see their indecisions and only by allowing themselves to follow the hand that feeds them lies and half truths will they fall on their way to Calvary.

    ‘ Militant Group Islamic State (IS) Orders ALL Girls and Women in Mosul to Undergo FGM ‘ 

    #AceWorldNews – IRAQ (Mosul) – July 25 – Militant group Islamic State has ordered all girls and women in and around Iraq’s northern city of Mosul to undergo female genital mutilation, the United Nations said on Thursday, Al-Akhbar reports.

    ​The “fatwa” issued by the Sunni Muslim fighters would potentially affect 4 million women and girls, U.N. resident and humanitarian coordinator in Iraq Jacqueline Badcock told reporters in Geneva by video-link from Arbil. “This is something very new for Iraq, particularly in this area, and is of grave concern and does need to be addressed,” she said. “

    ​This is not the will of Iraqi people, or the women of Iraq in these vulnerable areas covered by the terrorists,” she added.

    No one was immediately available for comment from Islamic State which has led an offensive through northern and western Iraq.

        I imagine you mean the women of Mosul and not the IS or both. As a man who cares about the human race l can neither judge or set myself up as judge, so l understand your feelings and accept as we have suffered so we believe others should suffer. I travelled many paths to come to this stage in my life and one thing l learned on the way back is forgive those for what they do. This will not change neither will those words. But in so saying it gives me the ability to understand violence, anger and why so many people cannot forgive, but take heart all people are equal in my eyes. Remember to follow Jesus takes more than words it takes forgiveness without we are no better than my fathers beast of the field.

    ‘ EU Court of Human Rights Fines Poland For Hosting CIA Black Sites ‘ 

    #AceWorldNews – POLAND – July 25 -The European Court of Human Rights says Poland violated the European Convention on Human Rights by allowing terrorism suspects Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri and Abu Zubaydah to be secretly imprisoned on its territory between 2002 and 2003.

    ​The two are now inmates at the Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, detention camp operated by the U.S. military. They claim they were captured and then flown to a secret jail run by the Central Intelligence Agency in a Polish forest, where they were tortured and mistreated.

    The court, which is based in Strasbourg, France, blames Poland for facilitating the process.

    It ordered Warsaw to pay fines to the two men.

    The ruling is the first time a court has acknowledged suspects were held and tortured at so-called CIA black sites – under a program launched by Washington following the September 2011 terrorist attacks. The United States has acknowledged the program existed, but has not named the countries that cooperated with it.
    Lawyers for the two suspects and rights groups hailed the ruling according to In Serbia News.

    ‘ Barack Obama Calls for ‘ New Order ‘ Hesitating Not to Add ‘ World ‘ But Adding and a Collectivised System to Calm People’s Concerns Over Geopolitical Strife ‘ 

    #AceWorldNews – During a fundraiser in Seattle this week, President Barack Obama called for a “new order” based around a collectivized system in order to quell people’s concerns about geopolitical strife and the economy reported by DC Clothes Line.

    “People are anxious. Now, some of that has to do with some big challenges overseas,” said Obama, adding, “But whether people see what’s happening in Ukraine, and Russia’s aggression towards its neighbours in the manner in which it’s financing and arming separatists; to what’s happened in Syria … to the failure in Iraq for Sunni and Shia and Kurd to compromise … to what’s happening in Israel and Gaza….”

    “Part of people’s concern is just the sense that around the world the old order isn’t holding and we’re not quite yet to where we need to be in terms of a new order that’s based on a different set of principles, that’s based on a sense of common humanity, that’s based on economies that work for all people. … But here in the United States, what people are also concerned about is the fact that although the economy has done well in the aggregate, for the average person it feels as if incomes, wages just haven’t gone up; that people, no matter how hard they work, they feel stuck.”

    In a geopolitical context, Obama’s call for a “new order” really does not sound any different from the old unipolar world order that the United States has represented since the end of the Cold War, which is now being challenged by the rise of the BRICS countries reported DC Clothes Line.

      No one would have believed in the early years of the 21st century that our world was being plotted against by arrogant egotistical people believing their intelligence to be greater than all others; that as We the People busied ourselves about our various concerns, an enemy of capitalism, democracy, and freedom, observed and studied their intended victims, the way a person with a microscope might scrutinize the creatures that swarm and multiply in a drop of water. With apparent infinite complacency, people went to and fro about the country, overconfident about their lives upon this world. Yet across the dark gulf of politics, the federal government – vast and cold and unsympathetic – regarded We the People with angry eyes, while carefully drawing their conspiracy and treason plans against us under the direction of their new leader – our future dictator, Obama.

    ‘ Israel’s Extremist Rabbi States ‘ Thou Shalt Not Kill ‘ Only Applies to Killing Jews ‘ 

    #AceWorldNews – GAZA – July 25 – Rabbi Dov Lior, an influential leader of the religious Zionist movement and head of the Council of Rabbis of Judea and Samaria (the occupied West Bank), called on the Israeli military to completely destroy Gaza if necessary in order to quell rocket fire from the occupied, besieged and blockaded coastal strip, urging the “extermination” of “the enemy.” In recent weeks, since the killing of three Israeli teens in the West Bank, a wave of virulent racism and violent attacks against Palestinians across erupted across Israel, fuelled by incitement from political and religious leaders like Lior.

    ​In September 2012, Lior, one of the most influential figures in the religious Zionist movement, was one of several rabbis and politicians who led an event to honour an Israeli settler convicted of tying up and beating a Palestinian teenager, stripping him naked, and then dumping him on the side of the road.

    ​A few months previous, the same settler and another assailant attacked the same teen and killed a baby goat belonging to him. Lior claimed that the settler was framed, adding that Israeli courts are "driven by racist hatred of Jews."

    • In February 2012, Lior, called President Barack Obama a "kushi," a derogatory term for individuals of African descent, and compared him to Haman, an enemy of the Jewish people described in the Biblical Book of Esther. He also called for increased settlement activity in the occupied Palestinian West Bank, in order to "eradicate the jungle."
    • In September 2011 Lior told a conference that Arabs are "wolves," "savages," and "evil camel riders." The same month, he told a settler rally "There are no innocents in war," stating: "We have murderous rioters surrounding us, according to the Torah, there is room for collective punishment and the IDF must carry out the punishment against the rioters."
    • According to a July 2011 article in Haaretz newspaper:
      "Leading rabbis have testified that Lior was the source of rulings labelling the late Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin a "rodef" and a "moser" (a traitor who endangers Jewish lives). Here, too, he didn’t stop at incitement. Rabin’s assassin used to travel to Hebron to see the rabbi. Baruch Goldstein [who murdered 29 Palestinians at the Cave of the Patriarchs in 1994] also visited King Lior for instruction. After he massacred dozens of people, the rabbi ruled that Goldstein was ‘holier than all the martyrs of the Holocaust.’"

      Lior, who has stated repeatedly that killing non-Jews is condoned by Jewish law and that the commandment "thou shalt not kill" only applies to killing Jews, gave a eulogy at mass-murderer Goldstein’s funeral.

        I agree that any country or nation has their right to defend themselves. But l do not agree and never can l agree or break my Father’s Commandment’s, and by tampering with what was written to provide their own understanding, do they face the wrath of God. The words were simple ‘ Thou Shalt Not Kill’ not choose or decided on which Country, Nation or Peoples should suffer or die.

        It is not Israel’s or Palestine’s choice and neither Christian or Muslim has that right to choose. Only God has that right, they are his people and his laws being broke by his people. As he said and you will know me at the end.

        I also stand by this statement as the commandments were burned into my very soul.

    PROTECTIVE EDGE DAY 18: ‘ News From the Front-Line and Latest Updates ‘ 



    • Since July 7, Israel has killed at least 808 Palestinians in Gaza, including at least 185 children.

    • At around 3 PM local time on Thursday (July 24), a United Nations school in Beit Hanoun where approximately 1500 internally displaced people (IDP) were sheltering was struck by several missiles, killing at least 16 people and injuring at least 150 others. It wasn’t immediately clear who was responsible for the attack, however late Thursday the Israeli military acknowledged that it had fired into the area at the time of the incident, claiming they were responding to hostile fire. According to UN officials, they twice asked the Israeli military to allow a humanitarian corridor to evacuate civilians from the school during the day, but Israel refused. Over the past three days, the Israeli military has attacked UN schools housing IDPs on three different occasions, despite the fact that the UN has provided the military with precise GPS coordinates for all of its facilities.

    • According to the UN, as of July 24 at 8 AM ET:

      • At least 578 Palestinian civilians have been killed, including at least 185 children and 93 women.

    • During the 24-hour reporting period (July 23-July 24), at least 92 Palestinians were reported killed or their bodies recovered, including 17 children and eight women. (Note: These figures do not include at least 16 people killed in an attack on a UN school sheltering IDPs, the source of which is not yet conclusively known.)

    • Forty-two families in Gaza have lost at least three or more members killed by the Israeli military in the same incident, totaling 253 people.

    • More than 5100 Palestinians have been injured, including more than 1500 children and 1000 women, as of July 24 at 1 AM ET.

    • 149,000 internally displaced people (IDP) are sheltering in 84 United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) schools and tens thousands of others are taking refuge elsewhere. This is more than double the number of Palestinians who took refuge at UN facilities during Israel’s devastating three-week assault on Gaza in the winter of 2008-2009, Operation Cast Lead. All are in need of emergency food assistance.

    • At least 148,000 children require specialized psychosocial support (PSS) due to trauma caused by the death or injury of someone they know or loss of home.

    • Israel has destroyed or severely damaged at least 615 residential properties, including numerous multi-story buildings, causing hundreds of civilian casualties.

    • Since July 7, Israeli attacks have damaged approximately 120 schools. On July 24, five people were wounded when the Israeli military shelled the Deir al-Balah girls school in central Gaza, which was sheltering approximately 1500 IDPs. At least six teachers are known to have been killed.

    • The Israeli army has declared 44% of the tiny Gaza Strip a military “buffer zone.”

    UKRAINIAN CONFLICT: ‘ US Accuses Russia Over Military Conflict Trying to Place Blame Firmly in Their Court ‘ 

    #AceWorldNews – UKRAINE – July 25 – Obama administration officials said Thursday that Russia is firing artillery from its own territory into Ukraine to hit Ukrainian military sites, pointing to escalating Russian involvement in the deadly conflict.

    A pro-Russian fighter stands guard next to bodies near a destroyed Ukrainian tank in the northern outskirts of the city of Donetsk, eastern Ukraine Tuesday, July 22, 2014.AP

    "This clearly is a military escalation," Pentagon spokesman Col. Steve Warren said, adding there is no question that Russian military — as opposed to Russia-backed separatists — are firing the shots.

    State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf first made the accusation during a press briefing earlier Thursday. She also claimed Moscow is boosting its military shipments to pro-Russian separatists.

    "We have new evidence that the Russians intend to deliver heavier and more powerful multiple rocket launchers to separatist forces in Ukraine and have evidence that Russia is firing artillery from within Russian to attack Ukrainian military positions," Harf told Fox News reporters.

    ‘ Talks On a Fix for the Department of Veteran Affairs Health Care Crisis have Collapsed ‘ 

    #AceBreakingNews – UNITED STATES (Washington) – July 24 – Updated 1:08 p.m. | Talks on a fix for the Department of Veterans Affairs’ health care crisis have collapsed, after the lead Senate Democratic negotiator accused the top House GOP negotiator of a “take-it-or-leave-it gambit.”

    Senate Veterans’ Affairs Chairman Bernard Sanders, I-Vt., said House Veterans’ Affairs Chairman Jeff Miller, R-Fla., has signaled he has abandoned talks after calling a noon meeting of the conference committee in an effort to ram a GOP plan through.

    Sanders told CQ Roll Call he did not plan to attend the noon conference meeting called by Miller.

    “It’s not a conference.

    A conference is when two sides agree to meet.

    This was decided at 10 last night by the chairman of the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs,” Sanders said, adding he would be prepared to talk with Miller over the weekend.

    After Sanders and Senate Democrats opted not to go, Boehner sent out a statement blasting them.

    Protective Edge Day 7 Days Since Israeli Incursion: ‘ And On The Seventh Day God Rested But No Rest For The Gazan’s As Missiles Keep Falling From the Sky ‘ 

    #AceWorldNews – GAZA CITY – July 24 – Israel’s Operation Protective Edge entered its 17th day on Thursday, marking the 7th day of the IDF’s ground incursion into the Gaza Strip reported Haaretz.

    ​The Palestinian death toll since Israel launched Operation Protective Edge surpassed the 770 mark, most of them since Israel entered Gaza a week ago.

    Israel military fatalities stand at 32 since the operation commenced. 134 soldiers are currently hospitalized due to wounds incurred in the fighting.

    UK GOVERNMENT: ' Philip Hammond Comments on UN Human Rights Council Resolution Saying it Will Not Achieve Ceasefire and is Fundamentally Unbalanced ' 

    #AceWorldNews – BRITAIN (London) – Philip Hammond says UN Human Rights Council resolution will not help achieve ceasefire and is fundamentally unbalanced.


    Commenting on the resolution on Gaza adopted today by the UN Human Rights Council, Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond said:

    The UK is deeply concerned by the continuing bloodshed in Gaza. It is tragic that so many innocent civilians, including women and children, have been killed and injured. The urgent priority is to stop the bloodshed, restore a ceasefire and work for a longer term solution. All our efforts will be concentrated on that objective.

    Today’s UN Human Rights Council resolution will not help achieve a lasting ceasefire. It is fundamentally unbalanced and will complicate the process by introducing unnecessary new mechanisms.

    The UK could not support this resolution, but recognising the strength of feeling about the loss of life and the desire by a large number of members of the Council to express that feeling in a resolution, the UK joined other EU nations in abstaining in the vote.

    ‘ Iraq’s Ambassador US Urges Barack Obama to Escalate US Military Intervention with Targeted Air-Strikes on ISIL Positions ‘ 

    #AceWorldNews – IRAQ – July 24 – Iraq’s ambassador to the United States has urged the administration of President Barack Obama to escalate U.S. military intervention. Iraqi ambassador Lukman Faily cited air strikes on ISIL positions in northern Iraq reported World Tribune.

    Iraqi Ambassador to the United States Lukman Faily

    “You should offer air support targeting terrorist camps and supply convoys in remote areas,” Faily said.

    In an address to the Atlantic Council on July 21, Faily said Baghdad wanted the U.S. military to join its Iraqi counterpart in operations against ISIL. The ambassador said the U.S. Air Force should support Iraq Army missions by bombing ISIL-held cities.

    “In order to enable us to conduct counter-terrorism operations in urban areas occupied by ISIL, we need precision U.S. air attacks,” Faily said.

    The ambassador warned that the ISIL campaign was endangering Iraqi oil production as well expanding Al Qaida control.

    He envisioned the prospect of ISIL infiltration of neighbouring Jordan.

    “Time is not on our side or on the U.S. side,” Faily said. “Further delay will help only the terrorists.”

    BOKO HARAM: ‘ Power Corrupts and Absolute Power is Corruptable in the Case of Nigeria’s Government ‘ 

    #AceWorldNews – NIGERIA (Abuja) – July 24 – Islamic militant group Boko Haram has taken control of the north-eastern Nigeria town of Damboa in a July 18 attack that killed at least 40 people.

    ​The vigilante force defending the town fled when it ran out of ammunition. Damboa is one of the biggest towns in Borno state and a significant trading centre, the BBC reports.

    Fighting around the town has damaged electricity stations, leaving the regional capital of Maiduguri without power for three weeks. The capital is about 53 miles from the captured area.

    Since 2009, Boko Haram has led an insurgency with the goal of creating an Islamic state. It drew international attention earlier this year when it kidnapped hundreds of schoolgirls, many of whom are still prisoner.

    ​’ Bring Back Our Girls Falls on Deaf Governments Ears ‘ as Nigeria’s government has faces heavy criticism for failing to rescue the girls and to end the insurgency.

    ​’ Nigeria’s $6 Billion Lost in Corruption and this is the National Assembly Building in Abuja ‘

    Nigeria’s President Goodluck Jonathan asked the country’s National Assembly to borrow $1 billion to fund a military response, but the assembly broke for a two-month recess before approving the request.

    Some Nigerian soldiers say they are out-gunned by Boko Haram. Critics say that much of Nigeria’s $6 billion military budget is lost to corruption. The military has come under criticism for abuses against civilians.

    In June Bishop Matthew Kukah of northern Nigeria’s Diocese of Sokoto told CNA that Boko Haram has gained power due to the weakness of the local government and due to the loss of credibility of the local Muslim lawyer class.

    ​’ Corrupt Government and Corrupt Country Breeds Corrupt People ‘

    He blamed “years of corruption” and “mismanagement of state resources” for consigning citizens to “misery and squalor.”

    He said Boko Haram are “purely and simply criminals,” though they have some grievances similar to those of ordinary Nigerians opposed to corruption and poverty.

    The Boko Haram uprising has been bloody. At least 2,053 civilians have been killed in an estimated 95 attacks in the first six months of 2014. Previously, about 3,600 civilians had died in the conflict.

    The U.S. government only recognized Boko Haram as a terrorist group in 2013, after years of lobbying from Christian groups and other human rights advocates.

    Malaysian Airlines MH17: ' Australia Mourns Loss of 298 Persons and 27 Were Nationals ' 

    #AceWorldNews – SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA, July 23 (CNA) .- In the wake of the crash of flight MH17 over Ukraine, Australians have been mourning the loss of the 298 persons aboard the flight, particularly their 27 nationals, one of whom was a religious sister.

    ​Sister Philomene Tiernan was an Australian member of the Religious Sisters of the Sacred Heart, and a teacher and boarding director at Kincoppal-Rose Bay School of the Sacred Heart, a girls’ boarding school located in a Sydney suburb.

    ​“We are devastated by the loss of such a wonderfully kind, wise, and compassionate woman, who was greatly loved by us all,” Hilary Johnston-Croke, principal of Kincoppal-Rose Bay School of the Sacred Heart, told CNA July 23.

    She “contributed greatly to our community and she touched the lives of all of us in a very positive and meaningful way,” Johnston-Croke recounted.

    Sr. Philomene, who died at the age of 77, had provided pastoral care to students both on campus and outside the school.

    “We will continue to honor her wonderful legacy of love and care, of deeply influencing and touching so many of our lives and the lives of many over her long years of service,” Johnston-Croke said. “She truly lived the Cor Unum spirit.”

    ​Kincoppal-Rose Bay, which also has a co-ed primary school, has opened counselling to its students, who have been deeply affected by this tragic loss of Sr. Philomene and the other passengers on the flight.

    “Sr. Tiernan was a great soul, a supportive spiritual guide, and a friend to the students who especially felt lonely being away from home, coming from Asia-Pacific, Europe and America,” Rebecca Curran, communications manager at Kincoppal-Rose Bay, remarked to CNA.

    Sr. Philomene was returning to Australia after attending a conference in Britain, a theology course in Ireland, and a retreat in France.

    ‘ Monica Lewinsky Could Have Damaged Bill Clinton’s Reputation Yet She Showed Restraint So Could Those Digging the Dirt Show the Same Courtesy ‘ 

    #AceWorldNews – UNITED STATES – July 24 – This is an excellent article by Daily Beast and focuses on the situation surrounding latest expose of Monica Lewinsky, now 41, is once again as she is the object of prurient curiosity. She’s the star of the so-called “Monica Files,” a collection of previously unpublished documents that include a fulsomely flattering letter from ABC News doyenne Barbara Walters, eager to grill the former White House intern on her television network, and some crassly humorous scripts for TV commercials advertising a coffee creamer.

    “She could have done some serious damage to Bill Clinton, and yet she showed self-restraint and self-dignity,” says Washington journalist Daniel Halper, author of Clinton, Inc.: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine. “She was so in love with him, in a way, but she was also a naïve young person. It was an unfair match-up. On the one hand you have the Clintons and their political machine; on the other hand, you have Monica, this lowly White House intern.”

    Halper, online editor of the right-leaning Weekly Standard, exclusively provided portions of his “Monica Files” to The Daily Beast, and also shared his revealing interview with Andy Bleiler, Lewinsky’s high school drama teacher who was later exposed in the midst of the scandal—by Clinton operatives, Halper contends—as having engaged in an ill-fated extramarital affair with his former student.

    It was allegedly Bleiler and his wronged wife who were the source of the infamous quote attributed to Monica in every media outlet on the planet: “I’m going to the White House to get my presidential kneepads.” Apparently the quote—portraying Monica as a delusional sexual predator who preyed on married men—was completely made up, Bleiler suggested to Halper.

    The “presidential kneepads” phrase was first uttered on theToday show by a mysterious attorney named Terry Giles, who showed up unbidden on Bleiler’s doorstep in Portland, Oregon, offered to speak to the media on behalf of the teacher and his then-wife, and never asked for payment. “I don’t even know where that term came from,” Bleiler told Halper in their previously unpublished interview.

    “I don’t know how it got where it got. That was not me.”

    ' Chinese City Sealed Off As Man Dies of Bubonic Plague ' 

    #AceWorldNews – CHINA (Beijing) – July 24 – A Chinese city has been sealed off and 151 people have been placed in quarantine since last week after a man died of bubonic plague, state media said reported by (Guardian Citing AFP Beijing)

    ​The 30,000 residents of Yumen, in the north-western province of Gansu, are not being allowed to leave, and police at roadblocks on the perimeter of the city are telling motorists to find alternative routes, China Central Television (CCTV) said.

    A 38-year-old man died last Wednesday, the report said, after he had been in contact with a dead marmot, a small furry animal related to the squirrel. No further plague cases have been reported.

    CCTV said officials were not allowing anyone to leave. The China Daily newspaper said four quarantine sectors had been set up in the city.

    "The city has enough rice, flour and oil to supply all its residents for up to one month," CCTV added. "Local residents and those in quarantine are all in stable condition." No further cases have been reported.

    Bubonic plague is a bacterial infection best known for the Black Death, a virulent epidemic that killed tens of millions of people in 14th-century Europe. Primarily an animal illness, it is extremely rare in humans.

    The US Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says modern antibiotics are effective in treating plague, but that without prompt treatment the disease can cause serious illness or death.

    Back in 2009 Homeland Security News Wire reported Pneumonic plague, a virulent variant of the bubonic plaque, has killed two and infected 10 in a Chinese city; authorities have sealed off the city

    Chinese health officials have sealed off a town in a sparsely populated area of north-central China to halt the spread of an aggressively deadly strain of plague. As of Sunday, two men have died from the outbreak, and another 10 – most of them relatives of the first dead man — are under quarantine.

    ​Rik Myslewski writes that the disease is pneumonic plague, which the World Health Organization (WHO) refers to as “the most virulent and least common form of plague.” Pneumonic plague is a variant of the bubonic plaque — the Black Death — that killed an estimated 75 to 100 million people worldwide in the mid-1300s.

    ‘ Pro-Russian Rebels Shot Down Two Ukrainian Fighter Jets in Eastern Ukraine ‘ 

    AceWorldNews – UKRAINE – July 24 – Latest information received by Reuters report that Pro-Russian rebels shot down two Ukrainian fighter jets on Wednesday in eastern Ukraine.

    Rebel commander Alexander Khodakovsky of the so-called Vostok battalion – or eastern battalion – speaks during an interview in Donetsk, July 8, 2014.


    Later in the day, a major rebel leader confirmed pro-Russian separatists possessed the type of anti-aircraft missiles used to shoot down Malaysia Airlines Flight 17. Alexander Khodakovsky told Reuters that the rebels had a Buk missile system and that they may have gotten it from Russia.
    However, he blamed Ukraine for provoking the strike and claimed the country knew rebels had access to the Buk. “The question is this: Ukraine received timely evidence that the volunteers have this technology, through the fault of Russia,” he said. “It not only did nothing to protect security, but provoked the use of this type of weapon against a plane that was flying with peaceful civilians.” Rebels using anti-aircraft weapons have shot down five planes, including MH17, in the past week

    ‘ GOP Divided Over Border Crisis ‘ 

    #AceWorldNews – UNITED STATES (Washington) – July 24 – Key House Republicans unveiled a plan Wednesday to respond to the border crisis, leaving just six working days to hash out a deal with the Senate before the August recess.

    While some Republicans warned doing nothing before the month-long break would open the GOP up to criticism from the White House, there were relatively few signs of urgency on the Republican side.

    Conservatives argued that the influx of child immigrants was entirely due to the president’s lax immigration stance.

    Malaysian Airliner MH17: ' Where is Your Proof That Russia Downed this Airliner to Sanction Russia ' 

    #AceNewsServices – BRUSSELS – July 24 – EU ambassadors meeting in Brussels at 9.30 local time on Thursday (24 July) are set to discuss a raft of new sanctions on Russia, as Moscow has shown no signs of wanting to meet an EU ultimatum over Ukraine, reported EUobserver.

    I am neither Russian, Ukrainian, American or believe that any type of conflict where innocents die is right. I just believe in the truth as a human being, blogger, truthful man and editor of Ace News Group.

    So when any country, nation or people is being persecuted and sanctioned without proof, something needs to be said.

    So I say to everyone reading this post, stand-up and voice your opinion of this situation, as politicians, world leaders and the western press, have done.

    This is my statement of how l feel: So Here Goes.

    This is a country that allowed the people to vote on Crimea becoming part of the Russian Federation and allowed these people freedom to choose, their governmental body.

    This is also a country that has been accused of a crime, it so far has not been solidly proven was either by their design or by their hand.

    This is a country that has taken over its borders thousands of Ukrainian Refugees, and provided food and shelter.

    And this is a country that wants to provide a way to broker peace between two warring nations, Israel and Palestine.

    So President Obama, David Cameron and the United Nations, where is your proof. Or is this country, federation and nation guilty without proof? Show the world your proof you world leaders and then you have the right with mine and many others blessing to sanction this country.

    Though if as l imagine it is all hearsay, conjecture and made up truths and half-truths you do not have that right. Neither does any other leader or country have the right to accuse, any citizen of Russia of a crime that has been committed until the absolute truth has been proven.

      Yes. The fool in the Oval Office does the old chin wag, and the peasants shall all bow. Deeply.
      From the beginning, I have been saying there should be a forensic investigation, and quite a few people on the net picked up on that and ask for the same. Open allegations are worthless, especially when the accused is a nuclear super power. I am puzzled of how, Americans have become so asinine that a junior senator with two years experience and only voted on four minor votes, could have become the president, considering, an absolute refusal of his to openly prove that he is qualified to run for office to begin with, then, having zero accomplishments, zero experience. America is, reaping what it has sewn. Now, to satisfy the demands of an International Court, a burden of proof must be met, and not a verbal diatribe of fabricated grievances.

    ‘ Hilary Clinton Donates All the Money She Makes Speaking at Colleges to Her Own Non-Profit Foundation ‘ 

    #AceWorldNews – UNITED STATES – July 23 – All that “will she or wont she” clamour over whether Hillary Clinton will run for the White House in 2016.

    ​Damage-controlling the eye-rolls over her comment about the Clinton’s being “dead broke” when they left the White House in 2001, a comment she concedes was “inartful.” Criticism of her big fees for speaking at colleges and universities.

    On Friday, Mrs. Clinton told ABC News’ Ann Compton that all of the money she’s made from colleges since she left her post as secretary of state has been donated to a non-profit foundation – hers.

    “All of the fees have been donated to the Clinton Foundation for it to continue its life-changing and life-saving work,” Clinton said. “So it goes from a foundation at a university to another foundation.”

    To give the organization its full name, that’s the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation (originally, the William J. Clinton Foundation).

    ‘ Judge Sentences Mary Anne Grady Flores Anti-Drone Activist to a Year in Prison, $1,000 Fine for Photographing a Peaceful Demonstration at US Airbase ‘ 

    #AceWorldNews – UNITED STATES (New York) – July 23 – On July 10, 2014, in New York State, Judge David Gideon sentenced Mary Anne Grady Flores to a year in prison and fined her $1,000 for photographing a peaceful demonstration at the U.S. Air National Guard’s 174th Attack Wing at Hancock Field (near Syracuse) where weaponised Reaper drones are remotely piloted in lethal flights over Afghanistan.

    ​Dozens have been sentenced, previously, for peaceful protest there. But uniquely, the court convicted her under laws meant to punish stalkers, deciding that by taking pictures outside the heavily guarded base she violated a previous order of protection not to stalk or harass the commanding officer.

    ​Mary Anne is a 58 year-old grandmother of three, from Ithaca, New York, where she is part of the Upstate Drone Action.

    ​Since late 2009 this grass-roots group has persistently raised awareness about the consequences of drone attacks in Afghanistan, the global epicentre of U.S. drone warfare. In December 2012, the U.S. Air Force revealed that U.S. drones had struck targets in Afghanistan 477 times during just the preceding year.

    ​Members of the Upstate Drone Action, alarmed by the proliferation of drones and the ease with which they kill suspects far from any battlefield, are troubled in general to live in a society that so automatically and heedlessly chooses warfare over other available solutions to its problems.

    Hundreds have gathered in Syracuse, NY, for events the Coalition has organized, including non-violent civil resistance at the Hancock base.

    INVESTIGATION: ‘ Eleven Out of Twelve Fake Applications Get Obamacare Premiums after Getting Through Verification Process ‘ 

    #AceWorldNews – UNITED STATES – July 23 – Eleven out of 12 fake applications for government-subsidized health insurance got through a verification process and the bogus beneficiaries are still covered, the Government Accountability Office said Tuesday.

    ​The GAO launched the sting to check to see how well the Obamacare process checks for counterfeit applications. The results were messy, GAO’s Seto Bagdoyan says in testimony prepared for a hearing Wednesday of the House Ways and Means oversight subcommittee.

    The GAO operatives made up 18 applications -– 12 applied on-line or by telephone, and six started out looking for in-person help.

    All were completely false, with fake incomes and counterfeit documentation.

    “The federal Marketplace approved coverage for 11 of our 12 fictitious applicants who initially applied on-line, or by telephone."

    Only one of the group of 12 was correctly told he or she could not apply. “For one application, the marketplace denied coverage because GAO’s fictitious applicant did not provide a Social Security number as part of the test,” Bagdoyan said reporting at NBC.

    ‘ FAA Cancels Flights to Israel for Second Day ‘ 

    #AceBreakingNews – UNITED STATES – July 23 – The Federal Aviation Administration extended its prohibition Wednesday against U.S. flights to Israel for a second 24 hours, a day after a missile fell within a mile of the Tel Aviv airport.

    "The agency is working closely with the government of Israel to review the significant new information they have provided and determine whether potential risks to U.S. civil aviation are mitigated so the agency can resolve concerns as quickly as possible," FAA said in a statement.

    Delta Air Lines and US Airways had already canceled flights for Thursday. European airlines also canceled more flights Wednesday, after the European Aviation Safety Agency said Tuesday it "strongly recommends" airlines refrain from flying there.

    "We have decided to suspend our flights to and from Tel Aviv until further notice," Air France said in a statement. "Your safety and the safety of our crew remain our top priority."

    The airline offered travellers holding tickets from July 22 to Aug. 15 either a refund or a chance to change travel to after Aug. 31.

    Lufthansa and Air Berlin also cancelled flights for Thursday.

    Lufthansa said its decision applies to its subsidiaries Germanwings, Austrian Airlines, Swiss and Brussels Airlines, spanning 20 flights from Frankfurt, Berlin, Munich, Zurich, Vienna and Brussels.

    Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx said U.S. officials continue to discuss the security situation with Israel.

    "We’re continuing to monitor the situation in Israel and other parts of the world. Safety is the very first priority for DOT, for FAA," Foxx said. "Our work within our own government and the conversations that occur between governments continue. As the situation continues to evolve, we will adjust our guidance accordingly.

    But for the time being, it is what it is."

    ‘ GM Announces Six More Recalls Totalling 717,950 Newer-Models and Brings Total Recalls in 2014 to 26 Million ‘ 

    #AceBreakingNews – UNITED STATES – July 23 – General Motors announced six more recalls today, totalling 717,950 newer-model U.S. vehicles for a variety of defects.

    That brings the number of GM recalls this year to 60, totalling 26 million vehicles.

    GM says it knows of three crashes and two injuries, but no deaths, linked to the new recalls.

    The auto-maker sees the latest round of call-backs as evidence it’s continuing to strictly police itself on safety issues.

    "These recalls signify how we’ve enhanced our approach to safety," said Jeff Boyer, vice president in charge of global vehicle safety. "We are bringing greater rigour and discipline to our analysis and decision making.

    If we identify an issue – large or small – that might affect the safety of our customers, we will act decisively."

    ‘ UN Human Rights Council Statement on Gaza Since Commencement of Protective Edge ‘ 

    #AceBreakingNews – UN HUMAN RIGHTS COUNCIL – July 23 – The situation in the occupied Gaza Strip is critical for the civilians living there and requires your urgent attention.

    Since Israel announced its military operation “Protective Edge” on 7 July, Gaza has been subjected to daily intensive bombardment from the air, land and sea, employing well over 2,100 air strikes alone. The hostilities have resulted in the deaths of more than 600 Palestinians, including at least 147 children and 74 women.

    This is the third serious escalation of hostilities in my six years as High Commissioner. As we saw during the two previous crises in 2009 and 2012, it is innocent civilians in the Gaza Strip, including children, women, the elderly and persons with disabilities, who are suffering the most.

    According to preliminary UN figures, around 74 percent of those killed so far were civilians, and thousands more have been injured. Those numbers have climbed dramatically since Israel’s ground operations began on 17 July.

    Hundreds of homes and other civilian buildings, such as schools, have been destroyed or severely damaged in Gaza, and more than 140,000 Palestinians have been displaced as a result.

    Two Israeli civilians have also lost their lives and between 17 and 32 others have been reported injured as a result of rockets and other projectiles fired from Gaza, and 27 Israeli soldiers have been killed during military operations in Gaza.

    As we speak, the indiscriminate firing by Hamas and other armed groups of more than 2,900 rockets, as well as mortars, from Gaza continues to endanger the lives of civilians in Israel.

    I have repeatedly condemned such indiscriminate attacks in the past. I do so again today.

    I further emphasise that it is unacceptable to locate military assets in densely populated areas or to launch attacks from such areas.

    However, international law is clear: the actions of one party do not absolve the other party of the need to respect its obligations under international law.
