Catalonia Calls Election in Push for Independence from Spain

Catalan Independence Rally In Barcelona The Spanish region of Catalonia is to call an election today which its government hopes will act as a proxy vote on independence. The Local reports that regional president Artur Mas will sign a decree that sets 27 September as Election Day in the hope that his new electoral alliance can win a majority allowing it to unilaterally declare independence from the rest of Spain. The Catalan government has already begun setting up institutions ready for independence, including a public credit institution that could become a central bank and potential tax agency. The move will be bitterly resisted by the Spanish government, with Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy vowing “There will be no independence for Catalonia”. Several government ministers have raised the possibility of suspending Catalonia’s regional government in such an eventuality. However, with nationwide elections due by the end of the year and the governing conservatives looking set to lose

Mojo Panel: Obama Will Support Biden, Email and Foundation Part of the Reason

Screenshot MSNBC hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, along with Bloomberg Politics Managing Editor Mark Halperin, argued that President Obama will support Joe Biden over Hillary Clinton if he runs for president, and that the Clinton Foundation and Hillary Clinton’s email are part of the reason why on Monday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” During an interview with White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest, he answered a question on whether President Obama wants Joe Biden to run for president and would support him with, “what the president has long said, is that choosing Joe Biden to be the running mate, was the smartest decision he’d ever made in politics. And I think that even given the high expectations that the president had for Vice President Biden, Vice President Biden, over the last 6 1/2 years, has exceeded them. He is somebody who’s a champion of the middle class. He is somebody

Doctor Shortage Looms as Obamacare Rolls out, Says Expert

Doctor Stethoscope (Joe Raedle / Getty) America faces a deep shortage of doctors as Obamacare is implemented. That is the view shared by 100 health care professionals who gathered at the 33rd annual meeting of Doctors for Disaster Preparedness in Ontario, California over the weekend. They forecast a future of decreased quality of health care and access to doctors if current policies continue. “What do I mean by medical meltdown? Well, sadly ,I’m here to tell you that the medical care you’ve enjoyed in the past in your life is simply not going to be there in the future,” said orthopedic surgeon Dr. Lee Hieb, who addressed the conference. Just like a black hole is so dense that no light gets out, “We have so much regulation that almost no medical care gets out,” Hieb told the audience. “We have over 160,000 pages of Medicare regulation and counting.” She continued, “Obamacare is Medicare on steroids.” “The reason we

Pay EVERYONE $70,000 a year. That’ll work…

AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite Dan Price, the “world’s nicest boss” who took a $930,000 salary cut earlier this year in order to pay even his lowliest staff members a minimum wage of $70,000, has reportedly hit hard times. Why does this story make me so happy? Well, partly, I’ve got to admit, it’s thinking about the shattered dreams of all those HuffPo readers who, just four months ago, were hailing Price’s move as enlightened, forward-thinking and commercially astute: This guy just got most of his employees to stick with the company for a very long time. It will benefit his company greatly. He will not have to spend money on training new people and those that are there will return the favour by working even harder to make the company great. Can we get this guy into the govt???? What a stand he is making!! More should follow suit if they are smart. I

UKIP Peer: Islam Is Not a Peaceful Religion

UKIP Announce The Results Of Their Leadership Election A UKIP lord is writing a new guide to Islam, which he hopes will start a much-needed conversation about the religion and ideology, and help challenge commonly held misconceptions about it. To the anger of the liberal establishment, he has repeated his previously stated view that Islam is “not a religion of peace.” Lord Pearson is preparing to launch an initiative called Shall We Talk About Islam and publish a book in October, which he is writing with the help of four Koranic scholars. He said a public conversation is needed, because “you may have noticed, we are not allowed to talk about it.” Those that do are “branded Islamophobic racists or accused of stirring up religious hatred,” he told The Times. In regards to the much-repeated platitude that Islam is a “religion of peace,” Lord Pearson reiterated a view he expressed last year, when he said: “We have to

Tory Ken Clarke Accused of Sexually Assaulting a 14 Year Old

Downing Street Prepares For Cabinet Reshuffle Tory grandee Ken Clarke is being investigated over allegations that he abused a 14-year-old boy, it has emerged. The accusations were made during a court case which saw another man who had accused the former chancellor of groping him cleared of perverting the course of justice. The alleged victim claims to have been abused by two men, one of whom he later recognised as Ken Clarke. Details of the allegations were put to the Old Bailey during a pre-trial hearing for Benjamin Fellows, who was accused of perverting the course of justice by making a false claim against Mr Clarke, the Times has reported. The Judge in that case, Mr Justice Simon, ruled against adjourning the case against Mr Fellows until South Yorkshire Police had undertaken a full investigation into the claims, as he said that “could be years”. The jury in the Fellows case were not made aware of

Identity Groups Slam ‘Conservative’ Mayor’s New Hate Crime Hotline

BRITAIN-VOTE Leaked e-mails reveal London’s Conservative mayor, Boris Johnson, plans to announce a new “hate crime” reporting hotline. However, various identity groups and grievance charities oppose the initiative, believing each victim group needs it’s own tailor-made hotline to encourage maximum reporting of perceived “hate crimes.” Every year more hate crimes are recorded in London than across the whole of the US. They range from comparatively harmless low-level speech offences to crimes of violence that have always been illegal under other pre-existing legislation. Those criminally violent acts are then combined with hate crime legislation to punish an offender’s motivation against a protected group as well as the offence committed itself. A quarter of all LGBT hate crime reports for the country are made in London, and the city has been described as the “hate crime reporting capital of the world” by Nik Noone, chief executive of London’s LGBT charity Galop. The Conservative Mayor, MP and party leadership

biden ABC News’ Mary Bruce reported on “Good Morning America” about Vice President Joe Biden mulling over throwing his hat in the ring for the Democratic primary. Bruce said Biden’s late son Beau Biden told him on his deathbed to run again and then explained that all of his gaffes are “part of his political charm.” “If he runs, it would be his third attempt at the White House, but he’s also had his fair share of stumbles. From back rubs to BFDs. Biden is a gaffe-making machine. But those ‘Oh, that Joe!’ moments are part of his political charm.” Follow Trent Baker on Twitter @MagnifiTrent
