North Korea fired three short-range guided missiles into its eastern waters on Saturday, a South Korean official said. —
Right. Real threat.
Not to joke or scoff, but North Korea is no threat now. Maybe in the future. If it doesn’t collapse first.
It’s led by Kim Wi Dik, yes?

True story, so it’s even sweeter than this.
A Hofstra University student being held in a headlock at gunpoint by an intruder was accidently shot and killed by a police officer who had responded to the home invasion at an off-campus home, police said Saturday.
Junior public relations major Andrea Rebello was shot once in the head early Friday morning by an officer who opened fire after the masked intruder pointed a gun at the officer while holding the 21-year-old student, Nassau County homicide squad Lt. John Azzata said.
In a tense confrontation with the officer, gunman Dalton Smith “menaces our police officer, points his gun at the police officer,” Azzata said. The officer opened fire, killing Smith and his hostage. —

Angelina Jolie Under the Knife -
I’m sure her discussion was news to too many of her followers in the tabloid press. I bet it was real, actual news to them. So even if this was some sort of publicity scam by Jolie (I believe she’s fully capable of it, but really have no idea in this instance), I’d bet it did some good.
And you know the cliche: If it saves a single life….

When U.S. personnel were airlifted from Benghazi the night of the attack, there were seven Foreign Service and State Department officers and 23 CIA officers onboard. This fact alone indicates that the consulate was primarily diplomatic cover for an intelligence operation that was known to Libyan militia groups. The CIA failed to provide adequate security for Benghazi, and its clumsy tradecraft contributed to the tragic failure. On the night of the attack, the small CIA security team in Benghazi was slow to respond, relying on an untested Libyan intelligence organization to maintain security for U.S. personnel. After the attack, the long delay in debriefing evacuated personnel contributed to the confusing assessments. — The Real Benghazi Scandal » Counterpunch: Tells the Facts, Names the Names
Is Obama the New Nixon? -
Nixon started us on the downward spiral, made worse by his successors, specially Reagan and Bush, Jr.
So Obama’s worse than Nixon because the nation is far worse that when Tricky Dick took office.
So this an internet-friendly B.S. headline.
The question is just what changes does Obama want to make and is the failure to do so his or are there external reasons?

Yet another non-existent problem someone felt compelled to write about — dishonestly at that.
To counteract this the government can print money and give it to people. Those people will then go to the store and spend the money, which will lead to higher sales. Higher sales will slow the fall in inflation, but will also provide an incentive to hire more workers, which itself will lesson the need for massive government transfers of income. —
In a word, what’s needed is economic stimulus.

And more here.
The Justice Department secretly obtained two months of telephone records of reporters and editors for The Associated Press in what the news cooperative’s top executive called a “massive and unprecedented intrusion” into how news organizations gather the news. —
Real reliable, accurate reporting in the first paragraph.
And secret? Hard to say since the subpoena was obtained to be served on the telephone company, not the Ap. And you know what? If it was served on the AP, it wouldn’t be a secret to them.
And they don’t even know what was actually obtained:
The records obtained by the Justice Department listed outgoing calls for the work and personal phone numbers of individual reporters, for general AP office numbers in New York, Washington and Hartford, Conn., and for the main number for the AP in the House of Representatives press gallery, according to attorneys for the AP. It was not clear if the records also included incoming calls or the duration of the calls.
And this what many rely on for accurate reporting?
