“The moon is a space object for the future exploration by terrestrial civilization, and a geopolitical competition for the Moon’s natural resources may begin in the 21st century,” said a report on a potential lunar program prepared by the Russian Academy of Sciences, the Roscosmos space agency and Moscow State University.

JERUSALEM – An Iranian admiral said this week that his forces are capable of sinking a U.S. aircraft carrier in less than a minute and destroying any U.S. naval force it confronts.

Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi, commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) Navy, said that the realistic looking mockup of a Nimitz class carrier seen in recent satellite images was part of an intensive training program wherein his forces attack replicas of American naval vessels they are likely to encounter. In an interview with the Iranian news agency, Fars, he said his forces could sink an American carrier “in less than a minute”.

NEW YORK (AP) — Nancy Strumwasser, a high school teacher from Mountain Lakes, New Jersey, always thought she’d have two children. But the layoffs that swept over the U.S. economy around the time her son was born six years ago helped change her mind. Though she and her husband, a market researcher, managed to keep their jobs, she fears they won’t be so fortunate next time.

“After we had a kid in 2009, I thought, `This is not happening again,'” says Strumwasser, 41, adding, “I never really felt comfortable about jobs, how solid they can be.”

Ted Cruz

Republican Sen. Ted Cruz released a definitive list Wednesday of 76 “lawless” Obama administration actions and abuses of power.

Cruz’s “The Legal Limit Report No. 4,” obtained by The Daily Caller, delves into little-known and little-reported details of President Obama’s executive actions. Cruz was set to discuss his report at the Federalist Society in the Promenade Ballroom of the Mayflower Hotel in Washington at 2:15 PM Wednesday.

“Of all the troubling aspects of the Obama presidency, none is more dangerous than the President’s persistent pattern of lawlessness, his willingness to disregard the written law and instead enforce his own policies via executive fiat,” Cruz stated in the report’s introductory remarks.

Harry Reid: Working With Republicans Like Wrestling A ‘Greasy Little Pig’

Senate Democrats Speak To The Press After Weekly Policy Meetings

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) described working with Republicans as wrestling a “greasy little pig.”

In a speech opening up the Senate Tuesday morning, Reid described rural Nevada rodeos where organizers cover a piglet in grease and send children out to grab it. “The organizers get a little pig, piglet, and they cover this little animal with tons of grease. It’s a greasy little pig,” Reid said.”

“Pigs are a little slippery to begin with, but when you cover it in grease they are really slippery,” Reid explained, noting that it was “a painless ordeal for the pig but it’s a lot of fun.”

“Mr. President, the reason I mention this, ofttimes working with my Senate Republican colleagues reminds me of chasing one of these little pigs in a greased pig contest,” Reid continued. “Regardless of all of our efforts, any time we get close to making progress, it seems as though we watch it slip out of our hands, and the Republicans scamper away.”
