The same was true in the 1960s, when liberals were celebrating their "permanent majority" and conservatives were fighting not just for the future of the Republican Party but the future of conservatism. This yin and yang of liberalism and conservatism is just another derivative of the federalist vs. anti-federalist argument that dominated the Federal Convention in 1787 and has continued under various labels and parties ever since. America needs this dualism. It is a vaccine against the dangerous extremes of democracy. Liberals should celebrate their contributions not bemoan their fate - for Americans need to be reminded of what liberalism has given them. In the last half century, the liberal agenda expanded the franchise to eighteen-year-olds and abolished the poll tax. It began the removal of discrimination against blacks with the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Voting Rights Act of 1965, and the Fair Housing Act of 1968.

" "As a Muslim scholar, I knew that across the Muslim worldpeople would have very high expectations of the new president," Ahmed said. Muslim enthusiasm for Obama's presidency proved short-lived as he struggled to enact most of his promises, and along the way soured on engagement with the region. Obama was an enthusiastic early supporter of the 2011 pro-democracy Arab Spring movement, but he threw his support behind Egypt's military regime two years later. His support of a military intervention in Libya in 2011 was hailed by some for preventing civilian casualties, but blamed by many in the region for igniting a civil war that continued years after the fall of Moammar Gadhafi. In 2011, Obama pulled American troops from Iraq, and in 2014 he ordered an end to combat operations in Afghanistan, but the conflicts intensified and he was blamed for a premature withdrawal from Iraq that led to the rise of Islamic State.

I thought the most powerful message he gave in his speech was when he talked about people not being able to do the job that they wanted to do. I thought that was an incredibly powerful point and it's very easy for people to underestimate this point. Can I just say, thank goodness he did carry on to pursue his career in politics. The house at the Conservative Party are much stronger for it, so it's great that he made sure that passion continued.

With every new announcement, its sounding more and more as though the Nintendo Switch is meant as a portable console that can be docked rather than a full on home console. The latest indication of this is the news from Nintendo that the console wont support any streaming services at launch . In a statement sent to Kotaku, Nintendo said, All of our efforts have gone toward making the Nintendo Switch system an amazing dedicated video game platform, so it will not support any video-streaming services at launch. However, support for video-streaming services is being considered for a future update. We have nothing to announce at this time The answer was one of a number sent through in a statement. Other questions focussed around the return of Miis, backwards compatibility, and the continued existence of the Virtual Console.

He has attacked a number of iconic figures, what he did on Martin Luther King weekend was a slightly thing to do which created a lot of controversy.

The company wasn't charged with a crime and did not admit guilt in either case. Sands spokesman Ron Reese characterized the payment announced Thursday as a monetary penalty, and said the non-prosecution agreement made no criminal finding. The company is pleased that its cooperation and long-term commitment to compliance were recognized in reaching this resolution, he said, and that all inquiries related to these issues have now been completely resolved. The government said none of the people whose conduct was described in the agreement work for Sands any longer. It also credited the company with undertaking extensive remedial measures. But it offered a scathing summary of alleged wrongdoing in a statement about Thursday's settlement. Certain Sands executives knowingly and willfully failed to ... adequately ensure the legitimacy of payments to the consultant, the government said, and continued to make payments to the consultant despite warnings from its finance staff and an outside auditor that the business consultant had failed to account for portions of these funds.

PENNE, Italy: At least 25 people, including several children, were feared dead Thursday after a devastating avalanche buried an Italian mountain hotel under snow and mud. Rescue work continued into the night but the prospects of anyone being rescued alive from the ill-fated Hotel Rigopiano looked bleak, with rescue efforts hampered by heavy snow that had blocked access roads to the remote site. The hotel was engulfed by a two-metre (six-feet) high wall of snow late on Wednesday afternoon with the impact powerful enough to rip the three-storey building from its foundations and move it ten metres. "We're holding on to hope that there are survivors inside," Deputy Interior Minister Filippo Bubbico told reporters in the town of Penne, where a camp for rescue workers has been set up. "Firefighters and alpine rescuers are working tirelessly and now the army is doing everything to improve access to the route," he said.

"We believe this male did some doughnuts at Flinders Street and Swanston Street, turned left into the Bourke Street mall and deliberately drove into the crowd, continued along the footpath colliding with further pedestrians," he added. YouTube footage showed a maroon saloon car circling the intersection with a driver wearing a light-coloured top half-hanging out of the window. He gestures to onlooking pedestrians before heading off down a street. Paramedics said 20 people were being treated and several had serious injuries. The Royal Children's Hospital in Melbourne said it was treating one critically injured patient and three seriously hurt. One witness, Kylie Clark, told Melbourne's Herald Sun she saw "bodies flying through the air". "It seemed to me they (the vehicle that hit people) were being chased by an unmarked police car." Another witness told the newspaper "he wasn't stopping and people walking were trying to get away and he just kept going and collected people on his way".

The Hollywood Reporter: A Dead Kangaroo, a Bleeding Pig: Hollywood's Top Animal Training Firm Hit With PETA Abuse Claims (Exclusive) For its part, PETA has written to the AHA to ask for a complete copy of a report that the monitoring group claimed on Wednesday it had initiated as soon as it saw the footage, bringing in an independent investigator to spearhead. (It also placed the on-set AHA safety representative on administrative leave.) Were hearing that the monitor did not report [the incident] to her supervisors but the AHA gave the movie an acceptable rating anyway, says Lange. We dont know if that is true, but were asking.

S. President Bush as Bush was fabricating on-the-spot that lie, and when Blair failed to ‘correct’ what the U.S. President had just asserted. Instead, Blair reaffirmed it. They were two gangsters (just ask the Iraqis whether they were gangsters): Bush, and Bush’s lapdog Blair, destroyed Iraq . They are war-criminals, though unprosecuted (because the U.S. aristocracy and the ones that subordinate themselves to it, prohibit any of themselves or their agents from being prosecuted). As Craig Murray blogged in Britain, the UK’s aristocracy joined America’s aristocracy in deep-sixing the truth on this crucial matter; and, furthermore, Barack Obama continued the rabid lying for war , after George W. Bush had finished being America's Liar-in-Chief. Obama was merely a more-articulate and cunning version of Bush, in blackface (which won him almost solid support from Blacks, and from ‘liberals’).
