    Small step forward for Saudi women, but will it affect daily lives?

    (CNN) — Women moved a bit closer toward equality Friday in male-dominated Saudi Arabia.

    Saudi King Abdullah issued decrees that the Shura Council — an all-male body he appoints to advise him on government matters — be composed of at least 20% women, the official SPA news agency reported.

    That means at least 30 members of the 150-member body will be women.

      Goody! Goody! Can Saudi women go out in public with out the full burka & without a man to accompany them? Will they be allowed to drive cars?

      Just asking….

    • creolechild

      I can appreciate that there’s concern about women’s right in foreign countries but as Miranda points out how will it effect their daily lives? American women have the luxury of being outraged and demanding that changes occur, and they’re also freed from the concerns that come with worrying about having acid thrown in their faces, being physically assaulted, or murdered for trying to change a culture that’s been in place for centuries.

      Furthermore, given the issues that women in this country are now facing over reproductive rights, equal pay, sexual assault, and the general lack of support for policies that help working women from all economic backgrounds balance work and family it would be more productive if they actually focused their efforts on the problems in our country first. Besides, the women’s rights issues in foreign countries will, in all likelihood, never be resolved until there’s a general consensus by a majority of the population who decide that THEY want to see change happen…

        Reagan-Appointed Judge Tosses Notre Dame’s Attack On Birth Control

        Last week, Reagan-appointed federal Judge Robert L. Miller dismissed the University of Notre Dame’s effort to undermine Obama Administration rules ensuring that working women will have access to birth control. The court did not reach the merits of the suit, instead dismissing it as, at best, premature:[….]

    State Suspends Permit Of Man In Gun Control Rage Video

    NASHVILLE, Tenn.- Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security has suspended the handgun carry permit of a local man who threatened to “start killing people” to protect his Second Amendment right.

    In a statement released Friday officials said they had suspended the handgun carry permit of James Yeager, CEO of Tactical Response based on “material likelihood of risk of harm to the public”.

    On Thursday, a video of Yeager angrily claiming he would “start killing people” if President Barack Obama moved forward with gun control measures began to go viral on the internet.

    • Alma98

      Thank you!

    • JojoRaze

      The NRA really needs to have SN intervention for these people. They are not helping the cause.

    • That’s it?? He made a terroristic threat “to start killing people”! Suspending his permit won’t stop him from shooting people. He needs to be in jail.

      • nellcote

        He needs his guns confiscated until he can prove that he’s mentally fit.

      • morphus

        Taking his gun permit is NOT enough. In addition to sending him straight to jail, his government contracts should be suspended. Yeager poses a greater threat than the garden variety wackjob. He is a weapons instructor, a former police chief, protective services contractor in Iraq, and owner of two companies that provide tactical weapons and training to police and military units.

    This new meme about PBO’s “lack of diversity” in appointments should really alert people who haven’t been paying close attention to just how lazy and trifling the media has become when so many websites and/or talking heads simply duplicate a storyline without engaging in basic research or fact checking. Tell me again what they’re being paid for and why people pay attention to anything they have to say…

    Obama Appoints Female Judges At Twice The Rate Of Bush

    According to data from the Federal Judicial Center, President Obama appointed just one fewer women to the federal bench during his four years in office than President George W. Bush did in eight. Obama appointed 70 judges to lifetime positions on the federal bench, including Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan. Bush appointed just 71 after two full terms in the White House.

    Overall, about 41 percent of Obama’s confirmed nominees to the bench are women. Sadly, this places him well ahead of his predecessors. Indeed, until the Carter Administration, female federal judges were exceptionally rare. Presidents Kennedy, Nixon and Ford appointed just one woman each to the federal bench:[….]

    ‘Red Wave’ Dust Storm Pounds Australia

    As devastating wild fires and too-hot-for-the-map temperatures envelop much of the continent, a terrifying dust storm hit the coast of Western Australia Wednesday evening. The massive storm was unrelated to a cyclone expected to hit the north coast this weekend, both of which may or may not be related to the massive heatwave.

    “The Bureau of Meteorology said the incredible sight of a ‘red wave’ at sea was created as wind and rain caused the storm to dump the sand and dust it had taken from the land,” reports The New Castle Herald.
    No extreme damage has been reported as a result of the dust storm thus far, but the photos reveal a wild sight that you would certainly not want to behold in person.[….]

      You should have seen Kornacki’s face when Alex Wagner in picking President Obama as her person of the year, described how kind and decent etc. he has been.

      Steve Kornacki was so mad and looked like he was going to have a stroke.

      The dagger eyes he gave Alex Wagner was epic.

      It was clear that Steve Kornacki simply couldn’t believe Alex Wagner just broke their pact about never telling the truth about President Obama!

      Steve Kornacki NEVER addresses President Obama as anything other than “Obama”. And he goes out of his way to really emphasize it. As if daring anyone to challenge him on it while simultaneously conveying his utter contempt of the President.

      Steve Kornacki has some very serious issues – so serious, I don’t think even the best psychotic drugs could help him. His ODS is only made worse by the sense that he’s actually deluded himself into thinking he and President Obama are equals.

      What’s frightening about Kornacki’s condition is that at first glance he appears altogether reasonable and normal, unlike say Chuck Todd, Dana Milbank, Chris Hayes, Ezra Klein etc. who all strike you at the very first glance as ever so slightly off.

        Now Imma have to reevaluate me and Lawrence. He seemed the voice of reason on evening lineup. Clintonite, yes I know. But he always seemed the “pragmatic voice” surrounded by Ed and Rachel. Yet beside Joy Ann, ALL his MSNBC colleagues he surrounds his show with (even Ari) are suspect as hell.

        Further more we were told that MSNBC heads have decided to go Bootsy on PBO after election. I might have to join several POUer’s in tuning them out except Rev. Al.

    Friday, January 11, 2013

    Afghan President Hamid Karzai is in Washington this week. On Friday, he met with President Obama at the White House to discuss the status of Afghanistan after U.S. and coalition forces leave in 2014.

    Later in a joint news conference held by the two leaders, President Obama said that U.S. forces in Afghanistan will transition to a supporting role starting this spring, but that no final decision has been made about the pace of troop withdrawals.

    News reports have stated that the Obama administration would like to limit the number of troops left behind in advisory roles, but any troop level would need to be approved by both leaders in a joint status of forces agreement.

    While in Washington, President Karzai met with U.S. Senators and military leaders. Later on Friday, he gives a speech to students at Georgetown University.

    Rep. Phil Gingrey’s attempts to explain Todd Akin’s rape remarks are leaving many Republicans beyond frustrated that a few in their party can’t help but insert rape into the already contentious abortion debate.

    Don’t Have Tickets for the Big Day? Inauguration Dress Rehearsal Offers Alternative

    Were you snubbed by Ticketmaster in your quest for seats to the inaugural ball and the Inauguration Day parade? Are you weary of the throngs of tourists that will descend on the District on Inauguration Day and clog up our already taxed commuting system?

    There’s an answer to your woes.

    On Sunday, the Department of Defense will hold a dress rehearsal of a number of Inauguration Day events, including President Barack Obama’s Capitol departure ceremony, a dry-run of the swearing-in and a run-through of the parade with military musical units, marching bands and color guards.

    The Inauguration Day rehearsal will provide Washingtonians a low-key — albeit unofficial — alternative to the madness of the official Inauguration Day activities.

    Beginning at 8 a.m. and going to 11:30 a.m., a full run-through of the parade will take place, including rehearsals for nonmilitary participants in the parade at the official reviewing stand in front of the White House.

    Later on, from 11:30 a.m. to noon, stand-ins for the president and vice president will hold a mock swearing-in ceremony on the official inauguration platform that has been erected on the West Front of the Capitol.

    “The purpose is to practice large-scale movements of military personnel and resources and finalize any logistical or staffing considerations for Inauguration Day,” according to the Joint Task Force – National Capital Region, which is providing the military support for this year’s Inaugural festivities.

    Nate Silver Makes His Super Bowl Prediction

    – – – Betters beware: Number-crunching guru Nate Silver has made his prediction for the Super Bowl. Sitting down at ESPN’s First Take, the Five Thirty-Eight blogger forecast a matchup between the New England Patriots and—believe it or don’t—the Seattle Seahawks. Silver’s hosts didn’t question his Pats pick, but the NFC’s No.5 team? “In terms of the balance overall between offensive and defensive play, Seattle had that best balance throughout the year,” Silver said, and “in the second half, were blowing people out by 50-to-7 scores and so forth.”

    –But Silver said the Denver Broncos are the second-best team in the NFL, so the AFC championship will be the de facto Super Bowl, reports the Huffington Post. Which means, of course, that Silver would take the Pats to win it all.

    – – – –You’d think with all the vitriol from the right that Obama was the second coming of Satan, the least popular president in all of U.S. history, an usurper, not the recipient of two landslide mandates from the American people.

    Instead, we find out that more Americans self-identify today as Democrats than as Republicans.

    And not only that, but a president who is, despite all these attacks, is increasingly popular. Gallup reports that Obama’s current approval rating is 56 percent – or seven points higher than “the average of his monthly approval ratings (49%) for the first 48 months of his administration, between January 2009 and December 2012.”

    Read that again. Higher than the first 48 months of his administration.

    This is in response to Sepia’s comment about Maureen Dowd and the song playing in her head.

    Maureen Dowd is representative of those women – and men unable to contain their raw and blinding rage at the impenetrable and unbreakable love and bond Barack and Michelle Obama share, prioritize and categorically declare by their every action, glance and unspoken word. The most unique and important currency the President holds.

    Maureen Dowd’s rage is laid bare and weekly manifested in her bizarre, vicious and crazy missives so spiteful, bitter, malicious, laden with personal attacks, incoherent rantings that read only similar to the psychiatrist- recommended daily journal entries of a seriously demented and damaged patient, used to monitor the extent of the patient’s obsession with the object of her desire.

    Maureen Dowd and her fellow psychiatry patients can’t decide who they hate and resent more:

    Barack Obama who is so unapologetically madly in love with his wife and mother of his two gorgeous daughters who are an uncannily beautiful melding and capture of both him and his regally stunning and super sexy wife – and constant and present reminders of their love and all they’ve shared and been through to get to where they are now-

    Or the incredibly amazing and effortlessly spectacular Michelle Obama who simply by being, exudes such a rare embodiment of all that’s most attractive and best in womanhood.

    A complete woman in the truest sense of that word. And who just goes about life being her most authentic and super-attractive and grounded self-

    Focused, smart, savvy, chockfull of common sense, completely unaffected or undistracted from and never losing sight of what’s most important in life: her children, her husband and her family and coming out at the end of this and any phase in their lives completely whole and intact.

    And to the chagrin of Maureen Dowd and the sadistic, envy-ravaged, perpetually salivating, eagle-eyed, always on call, scandal-hunters in D.C with their various and far-reaching national and international networks, the Obamas have failed to provide them the scandal or hints of it, that the sadists and ill-intentioned desperately crave.

    But the scandal hunters will never let up. They sit on the sidelines with baited breath.

    Some impatiently try to cynically influence, push for and even set up scenarios they hope might eventually pay off and offer them what they’ve all waited for: scandal – in any shape of form.

    Specifically a personal scandal that torpedoes what has been most powerful, most compelling, consistent, most attractive and best about them: their love, bond, partnership and marriage.

    The scandal-hunters from both the left and right are on the prowl. They are super desperate now. Jodie Kantor already took a first stab at it – and failed woefully.

    They hope and pray for hints of trouble in the marriage – a growing apart triggered by the dubious scenarios their various gossip partners in the media try to set up – including those who have up till now conveniently managed to overlook, completely ignored and failed to ever acknowledge Mrs Obama for the awesome woman she is, but particularly, for her singular importance to the very being of the man Barack Obama.

    They all know too well that she is and remains his singularly most important asset – even if they will never, ever acknowledge it or let it drop from their lips!

    She can never have that which Hillary Clinton could never lay claim to. How dare Michelle!

    Yes these folks who barely ever mention Mrs Obama except on the rare occasion and only if it serves to trivialize and dismiss both her and her husband. They will all suddenly be the first to create the 24 hours unending “news” loops “lamenting”.

    What happened? They’ve grown apart. He seems to be spending more time and said to be more relaxed with and enjoying himself around so and so.

    He doesn’t look at or gush about Michelle the way he used to, she looks miserable, he doesn’t seem to spend as much time with her as he did earlier on in his presidency preferring instead to hang out with his staff and friends. He seems annoyed and impatient whenever she’s around. She’s lashing out and they both can barely stand to even appear civil in public any longer. The kids are said to be rebelling and acting out in response. Sources say their school work and grades have taken a hit and they are withdrawn and shells of their former selves.

    What happened? How did this model love, bond, partnership, marriage and family completely fall apart?

    Did his pursuit for political power and a determination for a place in the history books destroy them? Was he only using her to advance his political career as many had always suspected?

    Anything at all to attack, diminish and entirely demolish them both. And once again try to force Barack Obama to cede his moral ground. The one thing the media can’t and never seem to be able to challenge him on – no matter how much they try to prove just how inferior a president he is compared to their new found hero and model president, Bill Clinton.

    So as you hear these many coordinated shouts from the sidelines for President Obama to “socialize more” and to appoint “more women to his inner circle”, beware and don’t be fooled. This is not just to create idle, silly news or simply to nip away at Barack Obama’s heels.

    As with everything that has been thrown at this particular President and First Lady, this is not simply par for the course or mere “political needling or mischief”.

    There is indeed a much more more sinister and insidious objective – not just designed to irritate, annoy or obstruct, but to completely decimate him, his legacy and anything remotely attached to him that complements, enriches and in anyway elevates or casts President and Mrs Obama in the best light.

    There are those so determined to make sure that Barack Obama goes into the history books with not just one, but several asterisks that ostensibly diminish him as a president, but even more importantly, as a person.

    Know that it is all being set up to push for and strike at several targets all at the same time – least of which isn’t the President’s most prized and most important asset: his wife and their marriage.

    Again, Jodi Kantor already took a first stab and failed. They’ve since regrouped and once again now even more than before, are more desperate than ever. Nothing is off limits. And they’ll be trying every tactic and scenario that they hope might potentially nab them their prize: a tarnished if not completely degraded presidency.

    We keep the President and Mrs Obama in our prayers and ask God’s continued grace, blessings, guidance and protection upon them always – while we will never let up in our unyielding support of them.
