Voting with their feet? Crowds WALK OUT during Obama's speech on the campaign trail in Maryland

A rare appearance on the campaign trail by President Obama on Sunday night was marred by a steady stream of crowd members leaving early and even a yelling heckler.

The president had shown up at the Democratic rally in Upper Marlboro, Maryland, near Washington, to support Lieutenant Governor Anthony Brown, who is running for governor.

With Obama's approval levels hovering around record lows, many candidates from his party have been wary of appearing with the president during their election races because of his sagging popularity.

If Republicans Win Control of the Senate in November, Nuclear War with Russia Will Be More Likely. Here’s Why.

Senate Bill S. 2277 is sponsored by 26 Republicans and no Democrats, and it would give President Obama the virtually unlimited authority to take U.S. to war against Russia in defense of the Ukrainian Government that Obama’s February 2014 coup established in Ukraine, the government that’s controlled by a coalition of one fascist party and two nazi (or racist-fascist) parties in northwest Ukraine. (Southeast Ukraine isn’t represented in the coalition; southeast Ukraine had voted overwhelmingly — and you can see the exact percentages here — for the President that Obama’s coup toppled in February 2014.)

Report Says Only 12% Of U.S. Drone Victims In Pakistan Identified As Militants

On October 11, the United States carried out its 400th drone strike in the tribal areas of Pakistan since the controversial campaign began a decade ago. Since 2004 thousands of people mostly civilians have been killed in such attacks. The US claims that its drone campaign is only against al-Qaeda and other militants. But a new study challenged America’s claims. In its latest study, the Bureau of Investigative Journalism says only 12 percent of drone victims in Pakistan could be identified as militants. The London based organization also says that out of the 12%, only 4 percent have been identified as members of al-Qaeda. Pakistan has repeatedly condemned the U-S drone program as violation of its territorial integrity and sovereignty.

'Loss for Democracy': Supreme Court Allows Texas's Voter ID Law

The U.S. Supreme Court on Saturday said that Texas's controversial voter ID law can remain in place for this year's election, potentially threatening voting rights of hundreds of thousands of Texans.

U.S. District Judge Nelva Gonzales Ramos had struck down the law on Oct. 9, finding that it

"has an impermissible discriminatory effect against Hispanics and African-Americans, [...] was imposed with an unconstitutional discriminatory purpose," and "constitutes an unconstitutional poll tax." Days later, a federal appeals court blocked that decision, keeping the voter ID restrictions in place.

Perry’s Priorities: Photo-Op at Auschwitz More Important Than Combating Ebola Outbreak in Texas

Whereas a visit to Jerusalem’s Wailing Wall may evoke some religious sympathies, a visit to the infamous Auschwitz I camp, with the often depicted words “ARBEIT MACHT FREI” at the gate, will likely trigger more powerful emotions. So that was the plan. The photos of Perry posing before the gate would be available to be released at the most opportune time during campaign season. However, at least one image did leak out into the public domain prematurely. (Note that the proper way to visit the Auschwitz I camp, which the holocaust industry propagandists have declared a “holy” site, appears to entail keeping both hands in your pockets, unless you have to hold an umbrella with the other one.)

Flawed Ebola protocols left U.S. nurses vulnerable, health official says

An Obama administration health official said Sunday that U.S. protocols on Ebola failed because they originally were intended for African field hospitals, while the White House came under another round of attacks for its refusal to restrict travel from nations suffering epidemic outbreaks.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said the original Centers for Disease Control and Prevention instructions for dealing with the virus were taken from the World Health Organization’s protocol for Africa, where conditions are much different from those in U.S. hospitals.

FLASHBACK 2012 - A CIA gambit in Pakistan threatens a global vaccination program

As an intelligence operation, it must have seemed like pure genius: Recruit a Pakistani doctor to collect blood samples that could identify Osama bin Laden’s family, under cover of an ongoing vaccination program. But as an ethical matter, it was something else.

The CIA’s vaccination gambit put at risk something very precious — the integrity of public health programs in Pakistan and around the globe. It also added to the dangers facing nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) in a world that’s increasingly hostile to U.S. aid organizations.
