WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. President Barack Obama sought Tuesday to restore public confidence in his presidency after a dispiriting year, pledging to use his White House authority with new force to advance an agenda that Congress has largely failed to support.In his fifth prime-time State of the Union address, Obama made clear that instead of trying to fix the mess in Washington, he was now promising to find ways around it.“America does not stand still,” Obama said. “And neither will I. Wherever and whenever I can take steps without legislation to expand opportunity for more American families, that’s what I’m going to do.”In a speech that lasted just over an hour, Obama struck moments of bipartisan harmony, most starkly in an emotional moment near the end when he called on the nation to draw inspiration from Cory Remsburg, an Army ranger blinded in one eye by a roadside bomb in Afghanistan during his 10th deployment.Remsburg, who was dressed in his uniform and seated next to First Lady Michelle Obama, drew a lengthy standing ovation from lawmakers in the House chamber, and he flashed them a determined thumbs up.For most of the speech, however, Obama made clear he would no longer be content to wait for Congress’ approval after a bruising 2013 in which it rarely came. He challenged lawmakers to work with him to achieve breakthroughs on large-scale initiatives to overhaul immigration laws and provide more benefits to U.S. workers, including a higher minimum wage and extension of long-term unemployment insurance.But he also sketched out more than a dozen ways in which he intends to use executive powers to try to boost the economy on his own.Obama covered topics as wide-ranging as equal pay for women, gun violence and Iran’s nuclear program. He ticked off accomplishments: a rebounding housing market, lower unemployment, manufacturing gains and lower annual deficits.Yet he made the case that Congress, and Washington politics more broadly, had become a roadblock to progress.When Washington’s fighting “prevents us from carrying out even the most basic functions of our democracy – when our differences shut down government or threaten the full faith and credit of the United States – then we are not doing right by the American people,” Obama said.He faced a tricky task: winning over a nation that has grown less trustful of his leadership after a year in which the federal government was partially shuttered for 17 days and the administration botched the rollout of Obama’s signature health-care law.

Washington Post photo by Nikki KahnFor the first time on the eve of a State of the Union address, more U.S. citizens rate his performance negatively than positively, with 50 percent disapproving. To that end, Obama announced a list of executive actions that he will pursue in the coming months aimed at slowing the widening income gap among families, which the White House has called a top priority for the year. Among them were plans to raise the minimum wage for federal contract workers to $10.10 an hour, create a new government-backed private retirement savings plan and speed up implementation of a previously announced program to connect schools to broadband wireless.White House aides described the initiatives as having the potential to help millions of U.S. citizens gain more take-home pay, job training and education. They pointed to previous examples of Obama using executive action to defer deportations of hundreds of thousands of young undocumented immigrants brought to the country by their parents as children and to strengthen regulations on carbon emissions at power plants.Such moves “were bigger than anything Congress passed in the last two years aside from the budget,” one senior administration official said, speaking on the condition of anonymity to preview Obama’s speech.But Republicans quickly denounced the new proposals as small potatoes and accused the president of failing to work through the legislative process to achieve more sweeping initiatives.“I suspect the president has the authority to raise the minimum wage for those dealing with federal contracts,” House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, said before the speech Tuesday, after Obama’s plans were leaked by the White House. “But let’s understand something: This affects not one current contract; it only affects future contracts with the federal government. And so I think the question is: How many people, Mr. President, will this executive action actually help? I suspect the answer is somewhere close to zero.”White House aides acknowledged that the program pertains to future contracts, and they were unable to quantify how many could be helped by the program in the next year, saying more details would be announced in the coming days as Obama embarks on a four-state tour Wednesday and Thursday to rally the public behind his initiatives.In the official Republican Party response to Obama’s address, Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, R-Wash., faulted Obama’s approach to the economy. Though the unemployment rate fell last month to 6.7 percent – the lowest level in more than five years – the drop was powered mostly by a growing number of unemployed people who stopped looking for work. “Last month, more Americans stopped looking for a job than found one,” McMorris Rodgers said. “Too many people are falling further and further behind because, right now, the president’s policies are making people’s lives harder.”The exception to the combative posture from the White House was on immigration reform, which House Republican leaders have signaled in recent weeks that they could be ready to entertain. Obama touched just briefly on the topic, reiterating his call for a comprehensive bill that includes a path to citizenship for the nation’s 11 million to 12 million undocumented immigrants. Washington Post photo by Nikki KahnOverall, Obama’s scaled-down ambitions were reflected in how his speech compared with last year’s, which he concluded with an emotional appeal to Congress to approve a set of gun-control laws his administration had proposed after the mass shooting at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn.Congress rejected each of those proposals, and though Obama touched on gun violence briefly in Tuesday’s address, he has abandoned his call for broad measures in recent months.Instead, Obama also praised his health-care law, which is both the signature achievement of his administration and – because of the fraught rollout of HealthCare.gov last year – the centerpiece of Republicans’ case against him. Obama described the situation of an Arizona woman, Amanda Shelley, who he said had obtained coverage Jan. 1 because of the law. On Jan. 6, she had emergency surgery – which, Obama said, “would have meant bankruptcy” if she had not been covered.Then, after saying that the law had made changes for the better, Obama made a blunter argument aimed at congressional Republicans. No matter what they thought of the law, they now had no choice but to live with it.“I know that the American people aren’t interested in refighting old battles,” Obama said. “So again, if you have specific plans to cut costs, cover more people and increase choice, tell America what you’d do differently. Let’s see if the numbers add up. But, let’s not have another 40-something votes to repeal a law that’s already helping millions of Americans like Amanda. The first 40 were plenty.”On foreign policy, Obama highlighted the U.S. military’s withdrawal from the long war in Afghanistan, telling the public that the country could maintain a small force there for counterterrorism operations and to train Afghan troops. And he implored Congress not to pass new sanctions on Iran as the his administration attempts to negotiate a multilateral agreement with Tehran over its nuclear program.Wrapping up his address, Obama acknowledged Remsburg in the first lady’s box. Remsburg “never gives up, and he never quits,” Obama said, turning to a broader call on the nation to follow the soldier’s lead. “The America we want for our kids – a rising America where honest work is plentiful and communities are strong, where prosperity is widely shared and opportunity for all lets us go as far as our dreams and toil will take us – none of it is easy,” Obama said. “But if we work together, if we summon what is best in us, …. I know it is within our reach. Believe it.”Washington Post staff writer Ed O’Keefe contributed to this report.

Facebook Comments Recommended: Shark fin scandal in Costa Rica has Solís administration on the defensiveQUITO, Ecuador – Ecuador seized around 200,000 shark fins and arrested three suspected traffickers in Manta, the country’s main fishing port last week.Ecuadorian authorities reported that at least 300,000 sharks were killed by the traffickers, in one of the most serious environmental crimes reported in the country in years. Shark finning usually entails slicing the fins off the animals and tossing them back into the water to die.The fins were to be shipped to China and would have yielded up to $1.5 million, prosecutor Vicente Parraga told the social action platform Take Part.Interior Minister Jose Serrano announced the seizure on Twitter on Wednesday, posting pictures of rows, piles and bags of the dark-colored shark fins.http://Debemos terminar con estas redes delincuenciales q no miran mas q su interés económico destruyendo el ecosistema pic.twitter.com/5kfOzkEukG— José Serrano Salgado (@ppsesa) May 27, 2015 The shark fins were seized in several operations in the port city of Manta. Police did not specify how long ago the fins were harvested.Shark fins are coveted in Asia for medicinal purposes and due to the demand for shark fin soup, considered a delicacy. Their trade is banned in Ecuador.In Costa Rica, landing shark fins is prohibited unless they are attached to the shark’s body.Costa Rica lobbied to include three species of hammerhead sharks in Appendix II of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) in March 2013. CITES prohibits the export of threatened species, such as hammerheads, unless authorities can prove that the export will not affect the species by moving it from a threatened category to endangered.In February, the National System of Conservation Areas (SINAC) and Costa Rica’s CITES administrators granted an export permit for 1,200 kilograms of hammerhead fins, the equivalent of approximately 2,000 sharks. Last December, another export permit was granted for 411 kilograms of fins.Related: American Airlines says it won’t ship shark fins anymore Related posts:Following public outcry, Costa Rica temporarily blocks exports of hammerhead shark fins US experts tracking wildlife trade help train Costa Rican customs inspectors Sea Shepherd’s Paul Watson turns to human rights commission to block Costa Rica’s legal chase World Bank court orders Ecuador to pay $1.8 billion to US oil firm Oxy
Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility Wilson said Russia’s motives in the increased bomber runs are unclear and part of a troubling pattern that includes the annexation of Crimea from Ukraine last year.“Russia is using disinformation and misinformation and skillfully manipulating the media,” he said.Copyright © The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. Lt. Gen. Stephen Wilson said U.S. forces in the area are following accepted safety practices to make sure that accidents are avoided but Russian bombers do not take basic safety measures to prevent dangers to commercial air travel.“When we fly on a flight plan, we announce it, we squawk, our transponders are on, we talk to air traffic control. We’re following all the international norms,” Wilson said in a meeting at the RAF club in London. “That isn’t happening with Russia.”Wilson said so far Russian bombers have stopped short of crossing into European airspace but said the practice brings “unannounced” Russian bombers into international airspace heavily used by commercial pilots who depend on air traffic control guidance.“We would not do that,” he said. “It puts people at risk.”The Russian bomber runs have not caused any accidents.But a civilian plane was shot down last summer over eastern Ukraine, killing all 298 people aboard. Ukraine and the West suspect it was destroyed by a Russian surface-to-air missile fired by Russian soldiers or Russia-backed separatist rebels fighting in the area. Russia denies that and has suggested it was a Ukrainian missile. Get a lawn your neighbor will be jealous of LONDON (AP) — Russia’s increasingly aggressive military flights near European airspace pose a risk to commercial air safety in the region’s crowded skies, the commander of the U.S. Air Force Global Strike Command said Friday.The past year has seen a marked increase in the number of long-range Russian bombers that have approached European airspace near Britain, the Baltics or Scandinavia and have been escorted out of the area. U.S. Air Force Lieutenant General Stephen Wilson answers questions during a roundtable event at the RAF Club in London, Friday, June 19, 2015. A senior U.S. Air Force officer says Russian bombers’ increasing probes of skies near Europe pose a risk to commercial air safety. Lt. Gen. Stephen Wilson said Friday that Russian bombers are not following international norms when flying near Britain, the Baltics or Scandinavia.

The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) issued a report today detailing its progress on initiatives released in the 2014 Strategic Plan for the Conservatorships of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and the 2014 Conservatorship Scorecard. The report highlights activities Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac undertook to maintain credit availability in a safe manner, reduce taxpayer risk, and build a new infrastructure.“I’m very proud of the work we’ve accomplished over the past year,” FHFA Director Melvin L. Watt said in a press release. “Some very important steps have been taken to meet our strategic goals and, while much more remains to be done, we look forward to continuing collaboration with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and to receiving input from stakeholders as we move forward.The 2014 Conservatorship Scorecard expressed the expectation that the Enterprises would work to increase access to mortgage credit for creditworthy borrowers. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac have since released programs that allow buyers to obtain a mortgage with a 3 percent down payment. In addition to providing better access to borrowers, the report stated improvements in the Enterprises’ risks. The improvements include stronger underwriting standards and stricter purchasing guidelines. For example, 97 percent loan-to-value (LTV) ratio loans must be fixed-rate and cannot have an adjustable rate. This provides a responsible approach to improving access to credit while also furthering safe and sound lending practices.According to the report, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac exceeded their $90 billion risk transfer goal. During 2014, the two Enterprises executed credit risk transfers on single-family mortgages with unpaid balance transfers of over $340 billion. As part of the FHFA requirement both enterprises continued to reduce their mortgage portfolios. As of December 2014, Freddie Mac’s portfolio stood at $408 billion and Fannie Mae’s stood at $413 billion, for a combined reduction of $131 billion. Both numbers were significantly under the $470 billion cap required by the Senior Preferred Stock Purchase Agreements.In 2010, the FHFA directed Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to initiate the Uniform Mortgage Data Program (UMDP), through which the Enterprises are collaborating with the industry to develop and implement uniform data standards for single-family mortgages. During 2014, FHFA and the Enterprises worked on three initiatives that build on previous UMDP efforts. They have added the Uniform Closing Dataset, the Uniform Loan Application Dataset, and the Serving Data Technology Initiative to the online platform in an effort to streamline processes.The FHFA said they welcome public input on that progress of these initiatives from interested parties. Input can be submitted via email to ConservatorshipStrategicPlan@fhfa.gov.

Vijayan Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi Union Minister M Venkaiah Naidu and others were not allowed to see or wish Jayalalithaa in person when they visited the Apollo Hospital where she is admitted A file photo of Karunanidhi PTI "This is because a question has arisen among some people if Jayalalithaa had [actually] signed the file and rendered advice [regarding] allotting her portfolios to Finance Minister Panneerselvam" Karunanidhi said in a statement here "The Governor’s communique yesterday that this (portfolios’ allocation) has been done on the advice of Chief Minister

is the practice followed across the country" he said According to him there is no provision in the Constitution for an acting Chief Minister Speaking to IANS political commentator Maalan Narayanan
