Oymeristan, behold your caliph fate~
Hizb ut-Tahrir America (HTA) has indicated that it has transitioned from its covert status to a public phase of operations by issuing an announcement, signed in its own name, that it will host a conference in July 2009 to support the establishment of a Caliphate. The promotional video can be viewed on YouTube. The event, titled "The Fall of Capitalism and Rise of Islam," is scheduled for Sunday, July 19th, 2009, at the Aqsa School in Bridgeview, Illinois. Bridgeview is a suburb of Chicago. Chicago has been a major hub of HTA's activities for the past ten years, approximately. According to information available on the internet, the Aqsa School is a private Islamic primary and secondary school. Although HTA's Khilafah conference will be held at the school, there is no public indication that the school, its staff, or its board members are directly involved with HTA.Turks Meet Saudis

Given North Korea's capabilities and its threatening rhetoric, it's important to ask: How likely is it to act on brinkmanship threats?Janitor gets 6 years in Tenn. nuclear parts theft
The short answer: likely enough to worry. Although Washington might want to facilitate North Korea's implosion and collapse through long-term isolation, a desperate Pyongyang would almost certainly not go down quietly. Military conflict could lead to a full-scale war on the Korean Peninsula in which the possibility of nuclear weapons being used, as Pyongyang has ominously threatened, should not be ruled out. The regime would do anything to survive.

The Fusion Centers started being pushed right after the MATRIX program fell apart, so Mr. Erickson began monitoring the issue. He believes he first caught wind of the Fusion Center coming to Utah in 2006.

However, using emergency powers which allow it to lend to a wider array of institutions in "unusual and exigent circumstances," it has deployed tens of billions of dollars to rescue Bear Stearns and AIG in the midst of the financial crisis, to the chagrin of some lawmakers who feel it has strayed from its monetary policy mission.Under Obama's plan, the Fed would need prior written authority from the Treasury if it wants to use those emergency powers in the future.

The widow of Dr. Barnett Slepian appeared in Albany Thursday afternoon to support a bill proposed by Assemblyman Sam Hoyt (D-144th District).Wake up before it's too late
The Buffalo lawmaker said he's calling for harsher punishments for people who try to interfere with an abortion by committing acts of violence against doctors, clinical staff, volunteers, or patients. Such acts that result in physical injury would be elevated from misdemeanor crimes to felonies.
"New York state would be the first in the nation to recognize the serious nature of these crimes by passing a law that creates enhanced penalties," Hoyt said. Speaking along with Hoyt was Lynne Slepian. Her husband was a Buffalo abortion doctor who was shot and killed sniper-style in his Amherst home in October of 1998.
"In order to bring an end to tragedies such as my husband's and Dr. Tiller's murders, we as citizens of New York state need to take action," Slepian said.
Pro-life advocates have stepped out in opposition to the bill with national group Operation Rescue calling it "unconstitutional in America" to afford special privileges to certain groups of people.

Government officials blamed the crash of TWA Flight 800, which killed 230 people, on a mysterious mechanical malfunction, while the Oklahoma City bombing, which killed 168, was quickly labeled the work of domestic "right-wing" terrorists. Accuracy in Media has long maintained that Clinton Administration officials concealed the truth about both incidents.

Lawmakers of Russia's southern Siberian Republic of Altai have resolved to name one of the mountains on its territory after the energy giant Gazprom, the republic's official web site said on Thursday. The initiative to name the 3,412-meter-high mountain after the Russian energy giant was put forward by the region's head, Alexander Berdnikov. "The request will be sent to Russia's main geodesy and cartography department," the website said. Mountain climbers are expected to ascend the mountain, the highest in the Kurai range, to install Gazprom symbols this summer. Local authorities also plan to name after Gazprom a street in the region's capital, Gorno-Altaisk.Gazprom and Dow Chemical Expand Emissions Alliance

FAMILY ties can make or break a person in Kazakhstan. They help when it comes to advancing a career, be it in business or in politics. Kazakh tradition requires you to support your relatives whenever possible. If your family lacks clout, an alternative is to attach yourself to a well-placed patron. One drawback with this system, however, is that it works both ways: if the patron falls for whatever reason, it almost always leads to the downfall of everyone connected with him.Brazilian president visits Kazakhstan, seeks investments

In the last two decades, the world has spent more than $196 billion trying to save people from death and disease in poor countries. But just what the world’s gotten for its money isn’t clear, according to two studies published Friday in the medical journal Lancet. Millions of people are now protected against diseases like yellow fever, sleeping under anti-malaria bed nets and taking AIDS drugs. Much beyond that, it’s tough to gauge the effectiveness of pricey programs led by the United Nations and its partners, and in some cases, big spending may even be counterproductive, the studies say.5.9 Mw - EASTERN MEDITERRANEAN SEA
