Scotland Yard Says It Will Reopen New Investigation into the Disappearance of Missing Madeleine McCann
After a two year of review, Scotland Yard says it will reopen a new investigation into the disappearance of Madeleine McCann. Madeleine McCann went missing on May 3, 2007 while on vacation with her family in Praia da Luz, Portugal. As reported by Radar Online, Scotland Yard had closed the case back in 2008. But after tireless pressure from the McCann family and their supporters, Birtish Prime Minister David Cameron asked the Metropolitan Police to launch a probe. Is it possible that Maddy McCain could still be alive? Is it possible after all this time and so many initial mistakes in this case by Portuguese authorities that a resolution can come to this missing person’s case?
Missing Maddy McCain
After a two-year review, Scotland Yard says it will reopen and fully fund a new investigation into the disappearance of Madeleine McCann, the British girl who vanished from her family’s vacation apartment in Praia da Luz, Portugal, in 2007.
That review comes after the intervention of British Prime Minister David Cameron, whose spokeswoman on Monday reiterated renewed support for the once-widely reported case, according to Britain’s Sky News.
“The Home Office remains committed to supporting the search for Madeleine McCann,” says the rep.
Losing the Youth Vote … Obama’s Job Approval Falls 17 Points With those Age18 to 29 … Scandals, Scandals, Scandals
It finally appears that Barack Obama has lost that loving feeling of the youth vote.
Yesterday we reported that Barack Obama’s job approval in a recent CNN poll fell to 45%. However, further looking into the numbers revealed an even more glaring loss of support. Obama’s approval rating fell 17 points to 48% with those who are age 18 to 29. So what’s the reason for the drastic drop with the youth? Could it be that they finally realize that they will be paying a disproportionate share for Obamacare? Could it be that they realize they have a mountain of college debt and no job? Probably not as they have had a time to digest these fiascos under Obama. Most likely it is because they realize that Barack Obama was not the one they had been waiting for and was no different that any other lying president. The scandals are starting to even affect the young. The IRS scandal and NSA are probably highest on the list of the multiple scandals. Obama stated as a candidate he would stop wire tapping and spying on legal Americans (VIDEO); however, the youth have recently learned a much different story. Today’s youth are more wired in to the internet, Facebook and social media than any other age group. Now they realize that the president who said they would not be spied on is doing the unthinkable, spying on them. It’s time for today’s youth to grow up and understand, the “One” they had been waiting for, was not. It’s always difficult for the idealistic young to realize that their hero is nothing more than Richard Nixon.
Have all the scandals become too much even for today’s youth? They appear to have lost trust in Obama, I guess they no longer believe, in Obama, they trust.
Even more surprising: The overall decline in his approval rating was partially fueled by a plunge in support from younger Americans, a huge base of Obama’s support.
Last month, nearly two-thirds of those in the 18-29 age group gave the president a thumbs up. His approval rating among that bracket fell 17 points in Monday’s poll and now stands at 48%.
“One explanation may be that younger Americans are more likely to feel they are personally affected by the surveillance programs,” said CNN Polling Director Keating Holland. “More than half of all senior citizens, for example, think that the government has not collected their personal information, and since older Americans are less likely to use the Internet, they may be right. Among younger Americans, two-thirds believe that the federal government has gathered their personal data.”
More Analysis from CNN: Obama overseas, poll numbers under water
This administration has gotten pretty good at riding the ebbs and flows of poll numbers,” said chief national correspondent for The New York Times Magazine Mark Leibovich. “In the second term it’s easier to sort of, not shrug it off, but certainly to ride it out a little bit.”
“The president’s trend line on his popularity, and the level of trust that Americans have for him, is going down, right as many Americans feel the economy is starting to recover, and their perception’s about the economy’s starting to go up,” said CNN contributor and former senior adviser to Mitt Romney Kevin Madden.
The Week has 3 reasons why Obama, White House an Dems should be concerned.
- Obama’s base is wavering
- The trust problem could grow
- GOP attacks are starting to stick

Isn’t it amazing that the very people who have made quite a nice living off the freedoms, liberties and opportunities afforded to them by living in the United States are they very ones who claim to hate it?
In Lil’ Wayne’s latest video titled “God Bless Amerika,” the rapper stomps all over an American flag. How special. You mean even with Barack Obama as president, Lil’ Wayne still has issues. Some people are just never satisfied. This is just another reason why I give celebrities zero status in my life. Obviously, it is not illegal what the rapper did as stepping on the Stars and Stripes is protected under free speech, however, that does not make it any less disrespectful. Yup, this country is just so bad Lil’ Wayne, because you have done so bad for yourself as a no talent fool. Maybe, just maybe you might want to write a song like this in a country that is ruled by Sharia law? Wonder what the result would be?
It is simply shameful that brave Americans have lost their lives defending the United States of America and this is how some exploit those brave acts of our American heroes. Simply disgusting. Maybe Lil’ Wayne would actually do something beneficial with his life and visit a military hospital and thank those who have afforded him a living and the right to act like a jerk?
My country tis of thee, Sweet land of kill em all and let em die
God bless Amerika This ole’ godless Amerika I heard tomorrow ain’t promised today The end of time is like a hour away
Don’t look now but
Nixon’s Obama’s approval ratings are tanking amid scandals.
According to a recent CNN poll. President Barack Obama’s approval rating has sunk to 45% while 54% disapprove of his handling of his job. It is his lowest rating in a year and a half. So why the free-fall? Can you say scandals and the fact that the American people are being to not only lose trust in government, but specifically lose trust in Obama. The scandals are starting to catch up with Obama and how could they not? With Benghazi, the IRS, AP, James Rosen, NSA, the State Department and lest we forget Fast and Furious, it is simply amazing his approval rating is at 45%. Obama also go low marks on handling the economy and the federal budget. Also, as reported at the Politico, for the first time in his presidency, the poll also found less than half of respondents believed Obama was honest. In all, the poll showed Obama to be a complete failure.
Full poll can be read HERE (pdf).
The president’s approval rating stands at 45%, down from 53% in mid-May. And 54% say they disapprove of how Obama’s handling his job, up nine points from last month. It’s the first time in CNN polling since November 2011 that a majority of Americans have had a negative view of the president.
“The drop in Obama’s support is fueled by a dramatic 17-point decline over the past month among people under 30, who, along with black Americans, had been the most loyal part of the Obama coalition,” says CNN Polling Director Keating Holland.
The president also dropped 10 points among independent voters, from 47% last month to 37% now, with Obama’s disapproval among independents jumping 12 points to 61%.
Snapshot of poll from Business Insiders:
•General job approval is down from 53% in May to 45% now.
•Approval on the economy is down 2 points, to 42%.
•On foreign affairs, Obama has fallen 5 points to 44%.
•On illegal immigration, Obama’s disapproval is up to 56%.
•49% of respondents say Obama is honest/trustworthy, a big drop from 58% in the last reading.
•Among those aged under 30, Obama has seen a 17% (!) drop in approval.
More from The Politico, Obama losing support from Independents and the youth vote.
The drop in support for Obama was especially steep among young voters and independents. With voters ages 18 to 29, Obama’s approval numbers dropped 17 points, according to CNN’s polling director. Among voters ages 18-34, 48 percent approved of the job Obama is doing and 50 percent disapproved.
Independents’ approval of the president dropped 10 points, to 37 percent, and disapproval was up 12 points, to 61 percent.
IRS-GATE … Drip, drip, drip.
Holly Paz, an IRS senior supervisor in Washington, DC admitted to targeting Tea Party groups seeking tax-exempt status. She stated she was personally involved in scrutinizing up to 30 Tea Party applications. Now according to reports, she is gone, but gone where? Fired, transferred, on administrative leave with pay? One thing is for certain, it’s no longer about rogue agents in the Cincinnati office, the IRS scandal that targeted conservative groups and Tea Party organizations now leads to Washington, DC.
From FOX News:
A Washington-based IRS supervisor acknowledged she was personally involved in reviewing Tea Party applications for tax-exempt status as far back as 2010, Fox News confirms — a detail that further challenges the agency’s initial claim that the practice of singling out those groups was limited to a handful of employees in Ohio.
Congressional sources confirmed to Fox News that Holly Paz, who until recently was a top deputy in the division that handles applications for tax-exempt status, told congressional investigators she reviewed 20 to 30 applications. Some requests languished for more than a year without action.
The account undercuts the narrative that senior officials only learned of the practice after it had already started in the Cincinnati office.
Details of Paz’s role were first reported by The Associated Press. Still, Paz provided no evidence that senior IRS officials ordered agents to target conservative groups or that anyone in the Obama administration outside the IRS was involved.
Instead, Paz described an agency in which IRS supervisors in Washington worked closely with agents in the field but didn’t fully understand what those agents were doing. Paz said agents in Cincinnati openly talked about handling “tea party” cases, but she thought the term was merely shorthand for all applications from groups that were politically active — conservative and liberal.
The Gateway Pundit provides an important little tidbit of information, Holly Paz was a Barack Obama donor.

Good grief, we can’t seem ta arrest any one at the IRS for illegally targeting conservative organizations or any one at the Justice department for AP or James Rosen-gate, but the some how we are able to jail a 14 year old for freedom of speech.
We had previously reported that 8th grader Jared Marcum, who attended the Logan Middle School in West Virginia had been arrested, suspended and faced charges for wearing an NRA T-shirt with the image of a firearm and the words “Protect Your Right” printed on it to school. School officials actually called the police on this kid for wearing a shirt to school and expressing his “freedom of speech”. This is still America, right? But now we learn that the case has not been dropped and that Jared Marcum could face a year in jail. HUH? As stated at Guns Saves Lives, how on Earth have these charges not yet been dropped? This entire incident was caused by an over-reaction by school officials and now it has gotten so far out of control that it could lead to an American citizen expressing their Constitutional rights.
According to a report by WTRF the prosecuting attorney is moving forward with that charge and a judge is allowing the case to move forward. Fourteen year old Jared Marcum could face up to a $500 fine and up to a year in jail (we’ll seriously hope that isn’t a real possibility) if found guilty.
According to the report, the arresting officer alleges that when Jared refused to stop talking he hindered the officers ability to do his job and that is where the obstruction arrest came from. I’m guessing a 14 year old kid who felt intimidated was trying to explain himself, but let’s throw him in jail for good measure.
According to the report, both the prosecuting attorney and police refused to comment or answer any questions from reporters regarding the case.
When did this country get so screwed up? Does anyone think he would be facing the same predicament if his shirt was “anti-gun” or maybe if it was pro-Muslim” or pro “illegal immigration”. Weasel Zippers says, STOP THE INSANITY!!! When will some one in authority use an ounce of common sense and just drop the charges?
This should be all Republicans need to know to never, and I mean NEVER nominate New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie as GOP presidential candidate.
WHAT A SHOCK. As reported by CNS News, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is the most-favored Republican recent newsmaker among Democratic respondents. Who could have seen that one coming? You mean RINO Chris Christie, Barack Obama’s best friend and the individual who helped Obama win reelection with his over the top embrace of Obama during the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy? Why wouldn’t Democrats see Christie as the most favorable Republican seeing that he allowed himself to be the useful pawn and photo-op for Obama? As stated at Michelle Malkin, Hillary Clinton’s greatest threat for the Democrat nomination for president might just be Chris Christie.
Obama – Christie Bromance … They are not a political odd couple, they are the same person … Obama and Christie are all about Obama and Christie
According to a newly released Gallup poll, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is the most-favored Republican recent newsmaker and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz is the least-favored–among Democratic respondents. The poll sought to measure the favorable/unfavorable sentiments toward five Republicans Gallup believes may run for president in 2016. Conducted June 1-4. the survey asked: [P]lease say if you have a favorable or unfavorable opinion of these people–or if you have never heard of them.” It then listed New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan, Texas Senator Ted Cruz, and Kentucky Senator Rand Paul.
Chris Christie most beloved Republican by Democrats, what is John McCain going to say?
