US House passes bill to lift oil export ban, veto looming

The US House of Representative passed a bill on Friday to appeal the 40-year-old oil export ban, but its future was uncertain facing a veto threatened by the White House.
The House approved the bill by 261 to 159 lifting the crude oil export ban first put into place in December 1975 to counter the 1970s Arab oil embargo against Western countries which has once caused US domestic gasoline prices to skyrocket.
But with only 26 Democrats voting in favour, the bill failed to gain the 290 votes necessary to overturn a presidential veto.

Flashback 2013 - Unsolved Mystery: Why Did Israel Have Saddam's Guns?

In the course of the second Gulf war, foreign sources claimed that Israeli forces were operating on Iraqi territory and assisting the U.S. Army. The rumors have never been confirmed. However, two Iraqi-made guns purchased from the Israeli Defense Forces about nine years ago add to the mystery surrounding the story.

The current affair, exposed last Friday, April 6, by Ya'acov Shlesinger, the editor of the regional newspaper Uvda (or "Fact") published in northern Israel, began when Sh. K., a weapon collector, bought several hundred old guns from the Israel Defense Forces—booty taken in wars and battles. When opening one of the fancy cases, he was surprised to find two Iraqi-made Tariq handguns inscribed with a personal dedication from overthrown Iraqi President Saddam Hussein to his cousin Ali Hassan al-Majid, who was, among other governmental and military posts he held, Saddam Hussein's Defense Minister.

Roseburg, Oregon Protests Obama Visit: ‘Chicago Needs You’

ROSEBURG, Oregon — As helicopters whirred overhead, bringing President Obama to the southern Oregon community that was the scene of a mass casualty shooting last week at a community college, hundreds of protesters gathered below to voice their objections to the president’s visit.

“Obama Unwelcome” and “Go Golf” were among the signs the protesters carried. Many of the anti-Obama crowd brought American and Gadsen flags to the event and a handful of people were openly carrying firearms.

One protester held a sign saying that President Obama should be in Chicago rather than Roseburg. “He needs to be in Chicago, in his own hometown and his own home state,” the woman told Breitbart News. “This is where there is a gun problem; we don’t have one here.”
