Russia news
Oct 24 2014 - Times Union, Albany NY by THOMAS FRIEDMAN
Reading the papers these days, I find that the two world leaders who stir the most passion in me are Pope Francis and Vladimir Putin, the president of Russia. One is everything you'd want in a leader, the other everything you wouldn't want.

Congress 2014
Oct 24 2014 - Troy Record by EUGENE ROBINSON
Sen. Elizabeth Warren says she isn’t running for president. At this rate, however, she may have to.
Editor's Comments:
Warren: “We can go through the list over and over, but at the end of every line is this: Republicans believe this country should work for those who are rich, those who are powerful, those who can hire armies of lobbyists and lawyers,” she said Friday in Englewood, Colo. “I will tell you we can whimper about it, we can whine about it or we can fight back. I’m here with [Sen.] Mark Udall so we can fight back.”
That is a huge lie and it is not just political season, it is a LIE. It should disqualify her for any political office. bbm

Canada
Oct 24 2014 - Front Page Magazine by Nichole Austin
The nation of Canada is reeling today from a brutal terrorist attack in the capital city of Ottawa that claimed the life of Canadian reservist Nathan Cirillo. The attacker has been identified as Michael Zehaf–Bibeau, a 32–year–old convert to Islam, who was killed by authorities as he opened fire inside the Canadian Parliament. The incident comes just two days after two Canadian soldiers were deliberately struck by a speeding vehicle driven by another Islamic convert, leaving one soldier dead. The twin attacks have demonstrated that even the unassuming nation of Canada is not immune to the threat of Islamic terrorism, which once again has been allowed to flourish under a lax regime of global leadership.

I don't oppose all wars," said Barack Obama, then an Illinois state senator, in 2002. "What I am opposed to is a dumb war. What I am opposed to is a rash war."

Oct 24 2014 - The Dallas Morning News by George Will
Wretched excess by government can be beneficial if it startles people into wholesome disgust and deepened distrust, and prompts judicial rebukes that enlarge freedom. So let’s hope the Federal Communications Commission embraces the formal petition inciting it to deny licenses to broadcasters who use the word “Redskins” when reporting on the Washington Redskins.
