Barack Obama And A Quarter-Century Of US Wars

In a front-page article published on May 15, the New York Times calls attention to a significant milestone in the presidency of Barack Obama:

“He has now been at war longer than Mr. Bush, or any other American president.” Obama overtook his predecessor on May 6. But with eight months still to go in the White House, he is on target to set yet another record. The Times writes: “If the United States remains in combat in Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria until the end of Mr. Obama’s term—a near-certainty given the president’s recent announcement that he will send 250 additional Special Operations forces to Syria—he will leave behind an improbable legacy as the only president in American history to serve two complete terms with the nation at war.”

Defense Bill Coming This Week: A Boost For War And Tyranny

For many of us concerned with liberty, the letters “NDAA” have come to symbolize Washington’s ongoing effort to undermine the US Constitution in the pursuit of constant war overseas. It was the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for 2012 that introduced into law the idea that American citizens could be indefinitely detained without warrant or charge if a government bureaucrat decides they had assisted al-Qaeda or “associated forces that are engaged in hostilities against the United States.” No charges, no trial, just disappeared Americans.

Italy to DOUBLE the rate of child benefit to halt 'apocalyptic' fall in birth rate and encourage large families

The move comes after fewer babies were born in 2015 than in any year since the state was founded 154 years ago.

Italy's health minister Beatrice Lorenzin has called for lower income families to be given double the €80 (£60) currently handed out by the state, while also stating that higher payments should be given out for second and subsequent children.

Ms Lorenzin told La Repubblica newspaper: 'If we carry on as we are and fail to reverse the trend, there will be fewer than 350,000 births a year in 10 years' time, 40 per cent less than in 2010 - an apocalypse.
