Facebook Follow @washtimes Should Congress make English the official language of the U.S.? View results The Monitor of McAllen. July 21, 2014. Is Gov. Perry playing politics or being earnest about public safety? We are certain Gov. Rick Perry did not take lightly the enormous responsibility as the state’s commander-in-chief when deciding to deploy the Texas National Guard to the border region to support the Texas Department of Public Safety, which itself is helping an overwhelmed U.S. Border Patrol secure our international border with Mexico. So we commend him on taking decisive action. But we withhold judgment on the wisdom of his action until we have more information. What is readily...

UK’s Sun newspaper suspends ‘fake sheikh’ reporter

21 July 2014 22:49:20 The Asian Age

Suspension comes weeks after journalists from the now-defunct NoTW were jailed for phone-hacking Mazher Mahmood, a British journalist known for his undercover work posing as a “fake sheikh”, was suspended by Rupert Murdoch’s Sun newspaper on Monday after the collapse of a celebrity trial in which he was a main witness. His suspension comes just weeks after the editor and senior journalists from a now-defunct Murdoch tabloid were jailed for their part in a phone-hacking scandal which led to demands for action over the “dark arts” of Britain’s aggressive tabloid press. Mr Mahmood, well-known for revealing wrongdoing amongst politicians, celebrities and even royalty, had given evidence in the trial of Tulisa Contostavlos, a former judge on the British version of the X Factor TV talent show. She had denied being involved in the supply of drugs to Mr Mahmood while he posed as a film producer, but her trial collapsed on Monday, with the judge saying he suspected the reporter had lied to the court. “The Sun, of course, takes the judge’s remarks very seriously. Mr Mahmood has been suspended pending an immediate internal investigation,” a spokesman for the newspaper said. Mr Mahmood previously worked for Murdoch’s News of the World tabloid which the media mogul was forced to shut in 2011 when it was disclosed journalists had hacked voicemails on mobile phones of thousands of people, including that belonging to a murdered schoolgirl, to find exclusive stories. That led to a public inquiry into press ethics and demands for reform. Earlier this month, the paper’s former editor Andy Coulson and two other senior journalists were jailed for the hacking scandal following an eight month trial. Rebekah Brooks, who later ran Mr Murdoch’s British newspaper arm now called News UK, was acquitted of involvement, often cited Mr Mahmood’s work as examples of good investigative journalism.

On New Year's Day, construction worker Victor Spiresau was greeted by politicians, reporters and photographers at Luton Airport - the first Romanian immigrant to arrive in Britain after the controversial lifting of employment controls on Romania and Bulgaria. Victor became the reluctant symbol of what many predicted would be a vast wave of East Europeans flocking to the UK.

Whatever the cause of this Fort Hood tragedy, simmering anger is somewhere in the mix News of another deadly shooting rampage at Fort Hood, 4½ years after a one-man act of jihadist terrorism claimed 13 lives at the same post, can't help but further demoralize Americans. Even if the shooting had nothing to do with terrorism this time, it suggests a disturbing failure somewhere in our society.

Scottsbluff Star-Herald. Feb. 16, 2014. Tax cuts: Realities make them easier to promise than to deliver Since nobody likes taxes, the obvious solution is to do away with them. The only obstacle to doing so immediately is, well ... it would be an economic disaster. Politicians who clamor endlessly about taxes seem to forget that representative government is expected to get a few things done, such as building roads and educating children. Unlike the federal government, which can cut taxes without regard to spending, Nebraska requires a balanced state budget, which means weighing the value of government-financed services against the benefit of tax cuts. In traditional fashion, some politicians...

The severe floods in the UK have caused disruption in the railway services, as residents of villages and towns along the River Thames are being evacuated. Train services in the south-west are suspended, while in other parts, they are running at reduced speeds, the BBC reports. UK Defense Secretary Philip Hammond has said the government "has got a grip" on the crisis, despite allegations by people in the suffering areas that not enough assistance is being provided. "The assets that are needed from across the nation have been mobilised into the areas affected. We're dealing with an enormous force of nature here, vast quantities of water and an unprecedented weather pattern", Hammond added. Severe flood warnings remain in force for several areas along the Thames, west of London, and along the Somerset Levels.

UK Postpones EU Immigration Report

16 January 2014 12:03:27 Novinite.com (Sofia News Agency)

The Home Office has delayed a report into the freedom of movement of EU nationals to work in the UK amid ongoing controversy over the issue, BBC reports. David Cameron has called for tighter controls in future amid unease about migration levels to the UK since 2004. An analysis of existing rules was due to be published imminently as part of a government review of EU powers. But Europe Minister David Lidington said the government had decided to "take a little more time" over it. The news comes after more than 90 Conservative MPs called for Parliament to be able to veto future EU legislation and repeal existing laws. Cameron has suggested that a future Conservative government could seek new restrictions on freedom of movement as part of a process of renegotiation - although this is likely to require changes in existing treaties and the approval of other EU members. The prime minister has said the right of any EU citizen to work and live elsewhere in the union, regarded as a fundamental tenet of the EU, needs to be reconsidered because of the impact of major population shifts in recent years. The report on freedom of movement was due to be published at the end of last year as part of the government's balance of competences review - an audit of EU powers seen in some quarters as a potential blueprint for future renegotiation. Lidington told the Lords EU committee that it would be delayed until after May's European elections. "With the removal of employment restrictions on nationals from Romania and Bulgaria, there is clearly not only a great deal of commentary on that but understandable public interest in understanding what happens after," he said. "So we have taken the view on that report, let's take a little more time so we can take account of what has happened in the first part of 2014."

Find root causes of vet suicides There is genuine hope that once the complete numbers are tallied, the number of military suicides in 2013 will be lower than the high set in 2012 — 514 deaths. If this occurs, it will likely be the result of proactive efforts in the military to get soldiers, sailors, Marines and airmen to seek help when they need it. There has been a genuine reluctance to seek that help because this is thought to carry with it a personal and professional stigma — a sense, perhaps, that asking for help is a sign of weakness.
