This FCC Commissioner Did A Reddit Chat. It Did Not Go Well. 23.11.2014 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
WASHINGTON -- On Friday, Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Commissioner Mignon Clyburn took to Reddit to do an " Ask Me Anything " session and answer questions about her job. But she soon found herself on the defensive against Reddit users angry about how the FCC has handled net neutrality rulemaking. The FCC is currently weighing whether to classify the Internet like a utility and restrict Internet service providers from charging content providers for faster Internet access. This month, President Barack Obama announced his support for that approach, known as "Title II." But net neutrality advocates are concerned that the FCC might go with a different proposal , which would allow for some degree of paid prioritization. Opponents of this plan say that it would threaten the openness of the Internet by making it harder for smaller sites to compete. When asked about her position on net neutrality, Clyburn, who is one of five FCC commissioners appointed by the president, said that she supports "a free ...

#Failghazi 22.11.2014 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
It being the day after Joe Biden's birthday, one imagines he spent it apologizing and making assurances that he'll never touch Wild Turkey again. John Boehner said the president "sabotaged" his relationship with Congress, though didn't add if any wells had been poisoned. And Al Franken is targeting Uber. We don't think a newly detailed Acura and complimentary water bottle will make him change his tune. This is HUFFPOST HILL for Friday, November 21st, 2014: BENGHAZI ANSWERS! - But, but, but… AP: “A two-year investigation by the Republican-controlled House Intelligence Committee has found that the CIA and the military acted properly in responding to the 2012 attack on a U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, and asserted no wrongdoing by Obama administration appointees. Debunking a series of persistent allegations hinting at dark conspiracies, the investigation of the politically charged incident determined that there was no intelligence failure, no delay in sending a CIA rescue team, no missed ...

You Might Not Know Where Chad Is, But the US Military Has Big Plans For It 22.11.2014 Mother Jones
This story first appeared on the TomDispatch website. Admit it. You don't know where Chad is. You know it's in Africa, of course. But beyond that? Maybe with a map of the continent and by some process of elimination you could come close. But you'd probably pick Sudan or maybe the Central African Republic. Here's a tip. In the future, choose that vast, arid swath of land just below Libya. Who does know where Chad is? That answer is simpler: the US military. Recent contracting documents indicate that it's building something there. Not a huge facility, not a mini-American town, but a small camp. That the US military is expanding its efforts in Africa shouldn't be a shock anymore. For years now, the Pentagon has been increasing its missions there and promoting a mini-basing boom that has left it with a growing collection of outposts sprouting across the northern tier of the continent. This string of camps is meant to do what more than a decade of counterterrorism efforts, including the training and equipping ...

From Hottest October to Coldest November, Is Climate Change Behind the Extreme Weather? 21.11.2014 Truthout.com
Record cold temperatures have been recorded across the country this week. The most extreme weather is hitting western New York, where at least seven people have died. At least six feet of snow has already fallen on parts of Buffalo, and another two to three feet is expected today. Tuesday was the coldest November morning in the country since 1976. Temperatures dropped below freezing in every state including parts of Hawaii on Tuesday and Wednesday. This comes just days after NASA reported last month was the warmest October on record. We look at the link between extreme weather and climate change with Eric Holthaus, a meteorologist who writes about weather and climate for Slate. TRANSCRIPT: This is a rush transcript. Copy may not be in its final form. AMY GOODMAN: We turn now to extreme weather. Last week, the news was about the record heat.

A Poetic Exploration Of The Hunting Tradition In America's North 21.11.2014 Green on HuffingtonPost.com
Photographer Clare Benson comes from a long line of hunters. Growing up in northern Michigan, she remembers her father, now 82 years old, winning archery championships and reminiscing about his time as a hunting guide in the Alaskan wilderness. For her, the tradition of hunting -- and the rugged northern landscape that serves as its backdrop -- represents themes of memory and mortality, ones she's managed to weave in and out of her work for some time. Her series "The Shepard's Daughter" addresses her connection to hunting most directly. The images show Benson, her sister and her father trekking through snow-covered scenes, respectfully carrying the spoils of hunting trips past. She pointedly juxtaposes portraits of her family members lounging in contemplation with photographs of the animals they hunt, skin, cook and eat. Set in a vast world unfamiliar to most urban dwellers, Benson paints a picture of a hunting tradition we don't often encounter. The Shepherd's Daughter, 2012 The project, she explained ...

In Mali's desert French troops hunt al Qaeda well by well 21.11.2014 Yahoo: Top Stories
By Joe Penney NORTH OF TIMBUKTU Mali (Reuters) - If the French army and its allies are to keep al Qaeda at bay in the desert of northern Mali they must stop them seizing the biggest prizes in the sea of white sand - the wells. So this month a column of soldiers from France, Burkina Faso and Mali, in armoured vehicles and pick-up trucks, churned towards a village north of Timbuktu where herders water camels and goats. They were looking for signs of infiltration by militants who need water as much as the locals do and aim to convert villages to their ideology. ...
Tribal Leader Hopes To Speed Up Deal On North Dakota Pipeline To Reduce Gas Flaring 21.11.2014 Green on HuffingtonPost.com
BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — The new leader of North Dakota's oil-rich Three Affiliated Tribes is pledging to speed negotiations on a proposed pipeline through tribal land that would curb the wasteful burning of natural gas in the state by more than 10 percent. North Dakota's booming oil production has led to an unmanageable increase in the state's output of natural gas, which is a byproduct of oil production. Oneok Inc., the biggest operator of natural gas pipelines and processing plants in North Dakota, wants to build a 20-mile-long pipeline to capture natural gas from oil wells in Dunn County and move it to an existing pipeline network nearby. But the Three Affiliated Tribes has demanded environmental assurances and cash for permission for it to pass through land it recently acquired. Tribal leaders and Oneok have been negotiating for about a year, according to Brad Borror, spokesman for the Tulsa, Oklahoma-based company. Mark Fox, who was elected chairman of the Three Affiliated Tribes earlier this month, ...

President Panders To Emma Lazarus Lobby 21.11.2014 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
If Republicans say the president is "poisoning the well" one more time, we're going to demand they repeal the phrase root and branch. Had Hank Johnson not asked if Guam might capsize, Steve Cohen's suggestion of a White House moat might be Congress' craziest water-based idea. And Mo Brooks thinks President Obama could be arrested for his immigration action, though the congressman can't cite under which law the president would be detained. Lesson: People who get law degrees to succeed in Washington are suckers. This is HUFFPOST HILL for Thursday, November 20th, 2014: WHITE HOUSE ANNOUNCES IMMIGRATION ACTION - Elise Foley: “ In the boldest move on immigration policy of his presidency, President Barack Obama is set to announce plans Thursday evening to dramatically increase deportation relief for an estimated 4.4 million undocumented immigrants. The executive action will protect parents, as well as those who came to the U.S. as children and others with long-standing ties to the country, from being forced ...

Republicans Have A Long History Of Warning Obama Against 'Poisoning The Well' 20.11.2014 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
Republicans are issuing dire warnings to " Emperor Obama " that his planned executive action to grant deportation relief to millions of undocumented immigrants would "poison the well" in Congress. Hold off until January, they say, to give Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and newly elected Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) a chance to pass a comprehensive bill that would beef up border security and fix the broken immigration system -- regardless of whether a bill doing just that already exists . Then, the logic goes, Obama will have willing and faithful partners to pass something, anything, in a Congress long mired by partisan gridlock. But can the president "poison a well," to borrow the phrase, that's been poisoned time and time again? According to the GOP, Obama has done so repeatedly, on just about every initiative he has tried to push through Congress. Washington is swimming in poisoned well water, and has been for years. The Democratic opposition research group American Bridge on Thursday ...
