Obama Authorizes Airstrikes In Iraq To Stop Genocide | King5.com Seattle

The United States “cannot turn a blind eye,” Obama said. Obama said U.S. aid would turn to airstrikes, which would represent a much deeper involvement in the conflict, in order to prevent militants from reaching Irbil, the capital of the Kurdish region.

WTVC NewsChannel 9 :: News – Top Stories – Obama Authorizes Air Strikes, Humanitarian Aid Mission in Iraq

U.S. aircraft, escorted by fighter jets, dropped 5,300 gallons of fresh drinking water and 8,000 meals ready to eat. The aircraft were over the drop area for less than 15 minutes flying at a low altitude, the U.S. Central Command said in a statement. The emergency effort is being deployed to help a group of 40,000 Yazidis, a group of ethnic Kurds, who fled villages in northern Iraq under threat from ISIS.

Obama approves humanitarian aid to besieged Iraqis; reportedly considering airstrikes – Yahoo News

“F-16s first entered Iraqi airspace on a reconnaissance mission and are now targeting Daash (ISIL) in Gwer and in the Sinjar region,” Holgard Hekmat told AFP. The New York Times, citing a Kurdish television report , said the U.S. military had bombed at least two targets in northern Iraq, where insurgents had isolated tens of thousands of religious minorities. A McClatchy news report cited a resident in Kalak who said she saw aircraft overhead, and heard explosions coming from behind ISIL lines. Rear Admiral John Kirby quickly used the social media site Twitter http://www.obamastudentloanforgiveness.net to deny the claims. Press reports that US has conducted airstrikes in Iraq completely false.

Us Leveraged Loan Fund Outflows Quadruple, To $1.5b; Etf Influence Grows – Forbes

And the influence of bank-loan ETFs grew during the week, to 14%of the outflow, or negative $211 million, from essentially nil the prior week. There have now been 15 weeks of outflows over the past 17 weeks, for a combined negative $8.5 billion over that span, which follows a record-shattering 95-week inflow streak totaling $66.7 billion. The trailing four-week average deepened to negative $689 million per week on average, from negative $302 million last week. This measure remains just under a recent peak, at $858 million in the week ended June 11. Year-to-date flows pushed deeper into negative territory, at $1.6 billion, based on a net withdrawal of $2.1 million from mutual funds set against a net inflow of $550 million to ETFs. In the comparable year-ago period, inflows were $35.3 billion, with 11% tied to ETFs.

According to a recent filing , the SEC granted approval of proposed rule changes to modify the PIMCO Total Return ETF ( BOND ) , http://www.etftradingsignals.com an actively managed ETF version of PTTRX, to include derivative instruments. The SEC had previously issued a blanket ban on derivatives in new ETF filings due to concerns over risk exposure.

BBRCs performance has also been strong, up 11.26% year-to-date as of August 5, 2014, compared to 7.74% for the MSCI Emerging Markets Index, said the issuer. Excluding the BRIC nations means BBRC has missed out on epic rallies in Brazilian, Indian and, more recently, Chinese shares.

Obama and Immigration: High Hopes, a Mixed Record – ABC News

With the president delaying executive action until after the November congressional elections, some Democrats worry that expectations have been raised beyond what he can deliver. “If they weren’t sky high before, they are now,” said Jim Manley, a web site former top aide to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev. “I’m not convinced they will meet the expectations of the Hispanic community.” White House officials say the delay will not affect the scope of what Obama intends to do. They play down suggestions he is looking to build his legacy with the decision. “The goal is going to be to do as meaningful a package of reforms as is available to the president through his executive authority,” White House communications director Jennifer Palmieri said. “I don’t think that is going to manifestly change from September to when we do this later this year.” The 2006 incident with the immigrants seeking to avoid deportation illustrates Obama’s past reluctance to act unilaterally and calls attention to the on-and-off relationship he has had with leaders in the Latino community.

Stocks mostly higher as Fed retains dovish stance

Fed Bank of Philadelphia President Charles Plosser dissented, objecting to the “considerable time” phrasing as related to the window of how long the central bank would wait until it begins raising the Fed funds rate. Stocks had mostly fallen on Wednesday after a report that had the economy bouncing back at a faster-than-estimated clip in the second quarter fueled speculation that the Federal Reserve could move on rates more quickly than anticipated. “The market can’t ignore how this raises the stakes for the Fed. There are consequences to better growth, and that’s a less accommodative Fed,” said Peter Boockvar, chief market analyst at the Lindsey Group.
