Queen shakes the hand of former IRA chief Martin McGuinness The Queen has shaken hands with the former IRA commander Martin McGuinness in a gesture that means as much to the peace process as her groundbreaking visit to Ireland last year. By  Gordon Rayner , Chief reporter 11:05AM BST 27 Jun 2012 382 Comments The monarch and Northern Ireland’s deputy first minister met briefly when the Queen visited a theatre in Belfast to view an art exhibition. A television cameraman and stills photographer were allowed to capture the historic moment, but no members of the public were allowed within a mile of the venue as police imposed a total exclusion zone amid fears of a terrorist attack. Mr McGuinness, as he held the monarch's hands for a few moments, spoke to her in Irish and told her the words meant: "Goodbye and God speed." In stark contrast to the cheering crowds who greeted the Queen when she visited Enniskillen yesterda

Watergate-ul lui Obama

The Fast and Furious scandal is turning into President Obama's Watergate By  Tim Stanley   US politics   Last updated: June 21st, 2012 436 Comments   Comment on this article Obama is repeating many of the mistakes that led to Nixon's resignation in 1974 Fast and furious hasn’t been discussed a lot in the mainstream media, which is why the facts can seem so preposterous when you read them for the first time. But the story is slowly unraveling and the public is catching up with the madness. On Wednesday, the The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee  voted to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt  over his decision to withhold documents related to the “gun walking” operation –  documents that President Obama tried to keep secret by invoking executive privilege . The question of why the Prez intervened in this way will surely hang over the investigation and the White House for many months to come. Be patient, conservatives. It took nearly eight

Photograph: Linda Nylind for the Guardian In 1983, Carmen Bugan's father, Ion, put on his best dark suit and drove to Bucharest to radically change his  family 's life for the worse. He stopped his red Dacia car on a rush-hour street and mounted banners on the roof. "Criminal, we don't want you to lead us" announced one. "What do you defend, the Ceausescu dynasty or the rights and liberty of man?" said the other, directed at the army, judiciary and police. Romania  was in the grip of the

Obama, probleme, ma?

How Barack Obama avoids prison 15.06.2012   By Lawrence Sellin A political deal will be struck to save the Democrat Party from total collapse and protect the Republican Party from revelations of complicity in the greatest fraud ever perpetrated on the American people. A growing number of Americans are now learning that Barack Obama, according to Article II, Section I, Clause 5 of the U. S. Constitution, is an illegal President. The law requires a candidate for the Presidency to be a "natural born citizen," that is, a second generation American, a U.S. citizen, whose parents were also U.S. citizens at the time of the candidate's birth. Obama's father was a citizen of Kenya and a British subject at the time of his birth, which made him forever ineligible for the Presidency. Practically speaking, that issue is not a problem for Obama because the Republican Party also wants to violate the Constitution. Many Republicans are aggressively advocating Flo
