Aiming to jolt the rest of the world to action, President Barack Obama moved ahead Sunday with even tougher greenhouse gas cuts on American power plants, setting up a certain confrontation in the courts with energy producers and Republican-led states. http://apne.ws/1Uh3UQi

30% reduction in emissions will increase costs by 30% and the poor will freeze. It's a moot point however as the courts have already instructed the Obama Administration they have overreached with their EPA regulations. This will never be implemented.

We no longer punish the criminals. It's all about blaming police officers! Thugs never had any respect, now due to the President, Holder, Sharpton, Jackson and the like, criminals just laugh in the face of officers. A dangerous situation has been created for officers and law abiding citizens.

"We have never seen an election like this, in which the wealthiest people in America are dominating the financing of the presidential election and as a consequence are creating enormous debts and obligations from the candidates who are receiving this financial support," said Fred Wertheimer, president of Democracy 21, a Washington-based group that wants to limit money in politics. Others see an upside to the rainmakers. "Big money gives us more competitive elections by helping many more candidates spread their message," said David Keating, director of the Center for Competitive Politics, which advocates for fewer campaign finance limits.
WASHINGTON (AP) — It took Ted Cruz three months to raise $10 million for his campaign for president, a springtime sprint of $1,000-per-plate dinners, hundreds of handshakes and a stream of emails asking supporters to chip…

+Allen McGregor  Clinton foundation is no worse than some of the other 'Super Pacs' on the (supposedly) other side. All deal in nearly invisible money.
And in any contest of politics, media, or PR you care to name, Money is the deciding factor wherever it is even slightly up for grabs (some one seen live on national TV committing murder probably wouldnt be able to get away with it no matter how much money is spent to sway public opinion. Any thing less? Hmmm- how much money do you have to throw at it again????)
Which is why the voices of the Banks/Wall street/ the corporations is drowning out and hijacking the voices of the man in the street.
The  (original)  Occupy wall street and TEA party movements should have been best buds but both got pigeon holed by the media on opposite sides of the political spectrum and the media (corporate and bank owned) did their best to hijack them both. Thus both have mostly died or transformed into something else entirely.

Having made history as the first city to win hosting rights for both the Summer and Winter Olympics, Beijing now faces a slew of challenges, from ensuring adequate snow in a bone-dry region to ramping up support for winter sports in a nation where few people ski or skate: http://apne.ws/1JX6hQU

+Ben Quijada Except - they wont 'come' just because you build it anymore.
Tourism to the Olympics themselves has been declining for decades now, and tourism to the cities afterward hardly makes up for the investment cost that goes into hosting the Olympics. Combined with the cost of getting on the short list of consideration (corruption charges appear to be well based) many cities are getting more hesitant about even trying to host them.  And it only takes one publicized 'blunder' to become a city or nations PR nightmare - Such as Rios infectious fecal filled waters, or the terrorist attacks of the 1980s.

PACHUCA, Mexico (AP) — A community project in central Mexico is bringing art to people's homes. Literally. A group of artists known as the Germ Collective have spent 14 months turning the hillside neighborhood of Las Palmitas…

U.S. intelligence agencies see the overall situation as a strategic stalemate: The Islamic State remains a well-funded extremist army able to replenish its ranks with foreign jihadis as quickly as the U.S. can eliminate them. Meanwhile, the group has expanded to other countries, including Libya, Egypt's Sinai Peninsula and Afghanistan.
WASHINGTON (AP) — After billions of dollars spent and more than 10,000 extremist fighters killed, the Islamic State group is fundamentally no weaker than it was when the U.S.-led bombing campaign began a year ago, American…
