The Real Monsters 1.11.2014 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
Each year at Halloween, our neighborhoods are bustling as children go door to door dressed as zombies, vampires, skeletons or something else fantastic and scary. For many children Halloween is the rare occasion to indulge in a fun time of ghost stories and goblins and trick or treats. But at the end of the night they put away their costumes and make-believe in their closets and return to their normal lives. Sadly, too many children do not have normal or safe or protected lives and their monsters are real. They do not have closets in many homeless shelters or on the streets or church steps where they sometimes live with homeless parents. They are not safe in drug- and violence-infested neighborhoods and suffer chronic hunger, especially on weekends and during long summer months when school is out. It should not and does not have to be this way! It is shameful that children are the poorest group in America because of unjust political choices and skewed values that help the wealthiest and powerful at the ...

Former GOP Rep. Trey Radel's Record Cleared 1.11.2014 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
Authorities have expunged the record of former Rep. Trey Radel after the Florida Republican completed his probation ahead of schedule, WINK News reported on Thursday.

The lawmaker resigned from Congress in January after pleading guilty to possession of cocaine. Last year, an undercover police officer sold Radel 3.5 grams of cocaine for $250 at a restaurant in Washington, D.C. His initial probation period was scheduled to end Nov. 20.

Republican businessman Curt Clawson won a special election in June to replace Radel.

Vet Homelessness Drops As 2015 Deadline For Ending Issue Nears: Report 31.10.2014 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
The number of veterans living on the streets is on the decline -- a welcome update considering that the Department of Veterans Affairs' deadline to end vet homelessness is fast approaching. On a single night in January, 49,993 veterans were homeless, marking a 33 percent drop since 2010 , according to a U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) report released on Thursday. The results were tallied by HUD’s annual "point-in-time" count, which partners with local agencies and volunteers across the country to manually enumerate the number of people experiencing homelessness on a single night. The Obama Administration and the VA have remained steadfast in their commitment to end vet homelessness by 2015. The success so far has been largely attributed to the close collaboration between the VA and HUD and their supportive housing program, called HUD-VASH. Since 2008, the program has doled out more than 59,000 rental vouchers and an estimated 45,000 formerly homeless veterans currently live in ...

Jerusalem Palestinian youths ready for new intifada 31.10.2014 Yahoo: Politics
Fourteen-year-old Hisham, who was born around the start of the second Palestinian intifada, dreams of a new uprising so he can play his part in "defending" Jerusalem's Al-Aqsa mosque. Al-Aqsa, situated in the heart of Jerusalem's Old City, is the buzzword for Hisham and his contemporaries -- most of whom refuse to give their real or full names -- since it once again became the focal point of the intractable Israeli-Palestinian conflict. For Hisham, who peers with hazel eyes from beneath his grey hooded sweatshirt, the increasing number of Jewish visits to the site is the same thing as the more and more frequent arrest raids by Israeli security forces around his home in Shuafat refugee camp of annexed east Jerusalem. "There's no peace in ...

Why They Come: The Real Reason for the Surge of Unaccompanied Children in the United States 31.10.2014 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
Americans have been wondering why the recent surge of unaccompanied children streaming into the United States is happening, and why it's happening right now. Debate rages over why children flee their homes in Central America, but a little-known U.S. counter narcotics policy may explain how this exodus started. The surge of migrants actually began in the fall of 2011 , and the number of children crossing the Southern border has increased every year since then. U.S. Customs and Border Patrol apprehended 68,541 children in 2014, and the number is expected to reach 145,000 in 2015 . Some commentators claim that children migrate because coyotes promise them immigration reform, or that they migrate to pursue economic opportunities in the United States. According to Sen. Ted Cruz (R.-Texas), "It's been widely reported that the administration is contemplating yet another amnesty...Granting another amnesty will result in those numbers being even higher." Explanations based on the possibility that our logjammed ...
