Military recognizes WikiLeaks defendant Manning as a woman
Mar. 5, 2015 5:30 PM EST

WASHINGTON (AP) — A military appeals court is recognizing the transgender defendant accused of leaking classified information to WikiLeaks as a woman.

The U.S. Army Court of Criminal Appeals in Washington issued the order pertaining to Chelsea Manning on Wednesday. The court says references to Manning in all future filings, orders and decisions shall use either feminine pronouns or gender-neutral phrases such as "Private First Class Manning."

The 27-year-old intelligence analyst, formerly known as Bradley Manning, obtained a legal name change in April. She was cleared last month to receive hormone therapy at the U.S. Disciplinary Barracks in Fort Leavenworth, Kansas.

Manning is serving a 35-year sentence for leaking reams of war logs, diplomatic cables and battlefield video to the anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks in 2010.

If You Criticize The Leader Of Israel.....


Iran nuclear deal 'very close' as Netanyahu brings negotiators together

Iran nuclear deal 'very close' as Netanyahu brings negotiators together
American and Iranian diplomats find common ground rejecting Israeli leader’s combative approach to negotiations, but also agree serious hurdles remain to meeting March deadline

The long and convoluted negotiations over Iran’s nuclear programme adjourned on Wednesday amid talk of continuing progress towards a comprehensive deal but of tough political decisions still to be made.

The talks will resume on March 15, probably in Geneva, as the latest deadline for agreement looms at the end of the month.

Iran’s foreign minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif said a deal was “very close”, telling NBC that he and his team were prepared to carry on working through the Persian New Year celebration of Nowruz starting on March 21.

We want to have an agreement. There are details that need to be worked out. We are prepared to work...round the clock in order to reach an agreement.


Perry Also Used a Private Email Account

Perry Also Used a Private Email Account

March 5, 2015 By Taegan Goddard

Rick Perry was among the first of GOP presidential hopefuls to criticize Hillary Clinton for using a personal email account for government business, the Texas Tribune reports.

Perry said the findings add to a “pattern of non-transparency… It’s an ethical issue that’s going to have to be addressed.”

“However, Perry is no stranger to using a personal email account to discuss state business, according to two lawmakers familiar with email exchanges involving the governor that surfaced two years ago. The extent to which Perry used his personal account over the years in unclear, but legislators and open-government advocates said it seriously undercuts his criticism of Clinton.”


Rep. Barney Frank re" Elizabeth Warren: “She’s much, much too smart to run for president."

Rep. Barney Frank, a close Warren ally, seems relevant:

“She’s much, much too smart to run for president. She has no chance to win—none—and she would kill her credibility if she did. She’s devoted her life to issues that she cared about, and the second people perceive her as ambitious, you know, interested in running, that’s over.”

My strong suspicion is that Warren herself agrees.

Hillary Clinton: "I want the public to see my email."

I want the public to see my email. I asked State to release them. They said they will review them for release as soon as possible.


Rush Limbaugh DUMPED By Chicago Radio Station WLS

Rush Limbaugh, who’s been a fixture on WLS AM 890 for more than 25 years, is about to get the bum’s rush from the Cumulus Media news/talk station, sources said Wednesday.

If all goes as planned, Limbaugh’s syndicated talk show, which airs from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday, will be dropped by the end of March, according to insiders at WLS.



Reports are flying that the large Chicago Cumulus radio station WLS 890 am is about to drop Conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh. Cumulus is denying the leak, however today's industry rumor closely follows a very out-of-character post by Limbaugh on his official Facebook page.
