Russia warns of Europe gas delivery cut over Ukraine debt

Russia says Ukraine’s failure to pay its growing gas debt may impact gas delivery to European countries. Russia’s Energy Minister Alexander Novak said on Saturday that Moscow may be forced to cut off natural gas supplies to Europe over Ukraine’s mounting unpaid gas debt. According to Novak, Ukraine currently owes Russia over USD 2.230 billion in unpaid gas bills and the debt is to rise, as the figure does not include 1.3 billion for deliveries made in April. The Russian Energy Ministry also said Ukraine’s debt could lead to a situation where not enough gas would be pumped into Ukrainian underground storage facilities, which could then result in an undersupply of gas to Southeastern Europe. More


LOUISVILLE, Ky. –
 Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was the keynote speaker at Saturday’s United Methodist Women’s Assembly in Kentucky, where she addressed a group of over 7,000 women about spiritual and social issues. Clinton spoke of how she grew up in the United Methodist denomination, and about her desire to tackle global problems like poverty and sex trafficking. “I have always cherished the Methodist Church because it gave us the great gift of personal salvation but also the great obligation of social gospel,” she stated. “And I took that very seriously and have tried, tried to be guided in my own life ever since as an advocate for children and families, for women and men around the world who are oppressed and persecuted, denied their human rights and human dignity.” The former first lady spoke of how Jesus fed the five thousand, and remarked that it reflected the duty of mankind to care for the less fortunate. More

Texas Middle School Teacher Charged After Performing Lap Dance on Student in Front of Class


HOUSTON –
 A middle school teacher in Texas has been charged with having an improper relationship with a student after she performed a full-on lap dance on the teen in front of the class. The incident occurred at Stovall Middle School in Houston on February 26th–the unidentified 15-year-old student’s birthday. Police state that teacher Felicia Smith, 42, told them that she did the dance at the urging of other students. According to reports, at the beginning of the class, Smith put a chair in front of the room as music began to play and students began cheering for the boy to sit in it. As he sat in the chair, Smith proceeded to rub her hands all over the teen’s body and grind her buttocks on him, and, at one point while on her knees, she placed her head between his legs. The teen admits to slapping the teacher’s bottom as she performed the dance on him. More

US defense officials said Friday that Russian fighter jets flew into Ukrainian airspace a handful of times over the last 24 hours, in what one called a continued provocation of the heightened tensions in the region.  The officials said it’s not clear what the intent was, but the aircraft could have been testing Ukrainian radar or making a show of force. Col. Steve Warren, a Pentagon spokesman, confirmed the flights, adding that the U.S. is calling on the Russians “to take immediate steps to de-escalate the situation.” More

REPUBLICAN LEADER: OBAMACARE HERE TO STAY; IMMIGRATION BY AUGUST

With the news this week that more than 600,000 Washington residents have acquired new health care plans through the state exchange, U.S. Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers said it’s unlikely the Affordable Care Act will be repealed. “We need to look at reforming the exchanges,” the Eastern Washington Republican said Thursday. The five-term congresswoman and chair of the House Republican Conference kicked off her re-election campaign this week with visits to Walla Walla, Colville and Spokane. She faces Democratic challenger Joe Pakootas. More

12 Numbers Which Prove That Americans Are Sick And Tired Of Politics As Usual

The American people are increasingly waking up to the fact that nothing ever seems to change in Washington D.C. no matter which political party is in power.  In fact, as you will see later on in this article, an all-time high 53 percent of all Americans believe that neither party “represents the American people”.  Over the past several decades, we have sent a Bush, a Clinton, another Bush and an Obama to the White House, but the policies coming out of Washington have remained pretty much the same the entire time.  The mainstream media would have us believe that the Republicans and the Democrats are constantly fighting like cats and dogs, but the truth is that the Republicans want to take us to the same place that the Democrats want to take us – just a little more slowly perhaps.  And behind the scenes, Republicans and Democrats have a good time with one another and they are ultimately controlled by the same set of oligarchs.  The Americans people are really starting to recognize what a sham our system has become, and the numbers show that they are quite fed up with it. More

North Korea says army must develop to be able to beat U.S.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un urged the army to develop to ensure it wins any confrontation with the United States, the reclusive country’s news agency said on Sunday, a day after U.S. President Barack Obama warned the North of its military might. Kim led a meeting of the Central Military Commission and “set forth important tasks for further developing the Korean People’s Army and ways to do so”, KCNA news agency said. ”He stressed the need to enhance the function and role of the political organs of the army if it is to preserve the proud history and tradition of being the army of the party, win one victory after another in the confrontation with the U.S. and creditably perform the mission as a shock force and standard-bearer in building a thriving nation.” More

The US Should Accept Palestinian Unity

While Palestinians celebrated the reconciliation agreement signed between Fateh and Hamas, the reactions in Washington and Israel were reminiscent of the biblical “weeping and gnashing of teeth.” American political commentators were dumbfounded by the news of the pact, terming it “a dark day,” “a setback for peace” or “a serious complication.” Members of Congress, meanwhile, were uniform in their threats to withhold aid if the Palestinian Authority goes forward with the unity arrangement. More 

 

Powerful solar flare temporarily disrupts communications on Earth

The sun erupted with a massive solar flare late Thursday (April 24), triggering a temporary communications blackout on some parts of Earth. The powerful flare peaked at 8:27 p.m. EDT Thursday (0027 April 25 GMT), and ranked as an X1.3-class solar storm, one of the strongest types of flares the sun can experience, according to a report from the U.S. Space Weather Prediction Center. NASA’s sun-watching Solar Dynamics Observatory captured video of the intense solar flare in several difference wavelengths. The solar flare erupted from an active sunspot region known as Region 2035 located on the far western side (or limb) of the sun as seen from Earth. Because of its position, the flare sparked a high-frequency radio blackout for about an hour on the daytime side of Earth, most likely over the Pacific Ocean and Eastern Pacific Rim, according to the SWPC update. Thursday’s solar flare was the fourth X-class solar flare of 2014. It followed an X1.2 solar flare on Jan. 7, a monster X4.9 solar flare on Feb. 24, as well as an X1 solar flare on March 29. While X-class flares are the most powerful eruptions on the sun, the star also experiences more moderate M-class solar flares (which can supercharge Earth’s aurora displays) and weaker C-class storms.  The sun is currently in an active phase of its 11-year weather cycle, and was expected to reach its peak activity in 2013.  EP

Obama brings curtain down on Mideast peace process

On Friday, U.S. President Barack Obama started bringing down the curtain on the American peace initiative spearheaded by his secretary of state, John Kerry, since last March. Obama did not formally wave the white flag, but his statements to the press make it clear that he thinks that currently, both Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas are not partners for peace. Obama’s statements were neither planned nor orchestrated in advance. He was asked a question, and he answered honestly and directly that despite a year of supreme efforts by the American administration, both Netanyahu and Abbas were unwilling to show leadership. In Obama’s opinion, both figures, motivated by political survival, don’t want to make decisions which will begin to untie the Gordian knot called the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.More 

Israel: Abbas put last nail in coffin of peace process

Top Israeli officials slammed Palestinian President Abbas, saying his speech on Saturday was the last nail in the coffin of the peace process. According to them, Israel made honest efforts to extend negotiations and posed no conditions while Abbas formed an alliance with Hamas and set out a series of preconditions he knows would never be accepted by Israel. ”In his speech, Abbas recycled conditions like a construction freeze in Jerusalem or negotiating borders first, even though we made it clear to him a week ago that these are unacceptable,” the top officials added. Earlier on Saturday, Abbas said he was still ready to extend the stalled peace talks, as long as Israel met his long-standing demands to free prisoners and halt construction in the West Bank and East Jerusalem. More 

The British navy is closely monitoring a Russian destroyer that approached its waters, it said in a statement. The destroyer Vice Admiral Kulakov, seen in the foreground above, was tracked by HMS Dragon, a U.K. Royal Navy destroyer, as it passed the north coast of Scotland. In a statement on Wednesday, Britain’s defense ministry described the maneuver as “a well-established and standard response” to the deployment of the Russian ship. In a separate development, Britain scrambled Typhoon fighter jets to see off Russian military planes flying close to its airspace on Wednesday. ”There were unidentified aircraft flying near the north of Scotland,” a defense ministry spokeswoman told Reuters, saying Britain’s Royal Air Force had later identified them as Russian.More

WARS N RUMORS OF WARS – President Barack Obama warned North Korea on Saturday that the United States ‘will not hesitate to use our military might’ to defend allies, showcasing U.S. power in the region amid China’s growing influence and Pyongyang’s unpredictable nuclear threats. Obama’s visit to Seoul comes as North Korea has threatened to conduct its fourth nuclear test, leading Obama to raise the possibility of further sanctions. ’The commitment that the United States of America has made to the security of the Republic of Korea only grows stronger in the face of aggression,’ Obama said in a speech to some of the 28,000 American service members stationed in South Korea to keep watch on its northern neighbor. ‘Our alliance does not waiver with each bout of their attention seeking. It just gains the support of the rest of the world.’ More

Georgia Governor Signs Bill Barring Health Plans from Offering Abortion Coverage


ATLANTA –
 The governor of Georgia signed a bill into law on Thursday that bars state health plans from offering abortion coverage. As previously reported, S.B. 98 was introduced by Senator Judson Hill (R-Marietta) and is said to serve as a means of protecting Georgians from funding the termination of innocent life. “No abortion coverage shall be provided by a qualified health plan offered within the State of Georgia through a state law, a federal law, or regulation or exchange created by the federal Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, as amended by the federal Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010, and regulations or guidance issued under those acts, except in the case of medical emergency,” it reads. While Hill told reporters that the bill doesn’t serve as an abortion regulation per se, the legislation also notes that “[n]othing in this Code section shall be construed as creating or recognizing a right to an abortion.” It also provides an exception for the “life of of the mother.” More
