EUROPE’S tallest teenager Robert Bobroczky has attracted the attention of the NBA, according to reports out of his homeland.

The Romanian sensation stands a towering  7ft 4in. And he has been growing at a rate of 10cm a year.

At just 13 years old, he is already taller than the tallest player in the NBA right now, the 2.21m Tanzanian Hasheem Thabeet of Oklahoma City Thunder.

Where does he get his height from? His father Zigmond Bobroczky is a 7' 1'' giant and former basketballer himself.

Bobroczky recently joined Italian team Stella Azzurra Rome, the same team that produced big man Andrea Bargnani, the No. 1 pick in the 2006 NBA Draft.

The Tallest player ever in the NBA was Manute Bol, at a height of 7' 7''
Bol played for the Washington Bullets in the late 80s.
This 13-year-old, built just like Bol, may pass him up if he ever makes it to the NBA
Watch this video. This is incredible.



 

WaPo Editor: Secretary Kerry Not Only Undercut Israel, But Key Allies of the United States (Video)



Washington Post Editor David Ignatius says Israel is 'furious' with Secretary of State John Kerry. He also told CNN's Brooke Baldwin that he's been talking to key diplomats around the world and he is hearing 'real unhappiness' in how Kerry has handled the Israeli-Gaza conflict. Ignatius wrote today in his column that John Kerry made significant mistakes in how he’s pursued a Gaza cease-fire. One was reaching out to Hamas allies Turkey and Qatar. Ignatius says working with those 2 countries directly undercut Israel and other key allies of the U.S. including Saudi Arabia, Jordan and the UAE.

Americans Blame Hamas, Not Israel For Violence By 2-to-1 Margin -Pew Poll

40% of voters polled blamed Hamas for the current violence, 19% blame Israel, 14% say both and 28% are clueless

Only 1-in-4 25% say Israel has gone to far, 35% say Israel's response has been about right


people-press
As fighting continues to rage in Gaza amid calls for a cease-fire, about twice as many Americans say Hamas (40%) as Israel (19%) is responsible for the current violence.

Just a quarter (25%) believe that Israel has gone too far in responding to the conflict; far more think Israel’s response has been about right (35%) or that it has not gone far enough (15%).Republicans Say Hamas Is Responsible for Violence; Democrats Are Divided

The new national survey by the Pew Research Center, conducted July 24-27 among 1,005 adults, finds substantial partisan divisions over which side is most responsible for the violence and Israel’s response to the conflict.

A majority of Republicans (60%) say Hamas is most responsible for the current violence. Democrats are divided: 29% say Hamas is more responsible, 26% Israel, while 18% volunteer that both sides are responsible


 

Poll: Republican Greg Abbott Crushing Democrat Wendy Davis in Texas Gov's Race 54%-37%

A 17 Point lead for Greg Abbott in a new NYTimes Poll. He is pulling away. The first week of June, a Texas Tribune poll had him leading Wendy Davis by 12. This one doesn't look good for abortion Barbie.


weaselzippers
With just under 100 days to go until the gubernatorial election, an overwhelming majority of voters have made up their minds and favor Republican Attorney General Greg Abbott over Democratic state Sen. Wendy Davis by double digits, according to a poll released this weekend.

The survey, done by polling firm YouGov in collaboration with CBS and The New York Times, shows 34 percent supporting Davis and 3 percent leaning toward voting for her, while the same numbers split 50-4 for Abbott. Perhaps the worst news from the poll for the Davis campaign is that only 2 percent aren’t sure for whom they’re going to vote, leaving a very small slice of a red-state electorate to vie for over the next three months.

Looking at the internals of this poll, Abbott now has a 2 point lead among women voters, and a whopping 28 point lead among men

 

Boehner: "We Have No Plans" To Impeach The President, This is a 'Scam By Democrats' To Raise Funds and Rally Their Base


Talk of impeachment is coming from the White House -Speaker Boehner


washingtonpost
House Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) on Tuesday rejected talk of impeaching President Obama, saying that the issue was being driven by White House staff and congressional Democrats who are trying to gin up liberal voters for the fall midterm elections.

"This whole talk about impeachment is coming from the president's own staff and coming from Democrats on Capitol Hill. Why? Because they are trying to rally their people to give money and to show up in this year's election," Boehner told reporters Tuesday morning. "We have no plans to impeach the president. We have no future plans."

Boehner noted that the Democratic campaign arms have raised millions and millions of dollars through e-mail and direct mail pitches in recent weeks that raised the specter of a GOP-controlled Congress impeaching the president in 2015.
"It's all a scam started by the Democrats at the White House" Boehner said.

Flashback Video- If It Were Up to Obama, There Would Be No Iron Dome


Thousands of rockets fired into Israel. Hundred of lives saved by Israel's Iron Dome missile defense system

In 2007, this genius called missile defense systems 'unproven' and put it under the category of 'wasteful spending.' He promised to slow their development

Obama cut this web ad for the Iowa Caucus4Priorities in 2007

'I'm the only major candidate who opposed this war from the beginning. And as president I will end it.

Second, I will cut tens of billions of dollars in wasteful spending. I will cut investments in unproven missile defense systems. I will not weaponize space. I will slow our development of future combat systems.  And I will institute an independent "Defense Priorities Board" to ensure that the Quadrennial Defense Review is not used to justify unnecessary spending'

Study: 35 Percent in U.S. Facing Debt Collectors

A Whopping 77 million Americans have debt 'in collections' at an average of $5,200


cnnmoney
Americans have a debt problem.

An estimated 1 in 3 adults with a credit history -- or 77 million people -- are so far behind on some of their debt payments that their account has been put "in collections."

That's a key finding from a new Urban Institute study. It examined non-mortgage debt, including credit card bills, car loans, medical bills, child support payments and even parking tickets.

The debt in collections ranged from as little as $25 to a whopping $125,000. But the average amount owed was $5,200. Geographically, no area of the country is untouched.

Among the states, Nevada had the highest percentage of residents with debt in collections -- 47% - as well as the highest average amount owed - $7,198. That was helped in part by the Las Vegas metro area, where 49% of residents had debt in collections.

By contrast, North Dakota had the lowest percentage of residents with debt in collections at just 19%, while the District of Columbia had the lowest average dollar amount owed per person at $3,547.

Obama Releases Statement Marking End of Ramadan


OMG.  Anybody else tired of this?


THE WHITE HOUSE
Office of Press Secretary-

whitehouse.gov (statement) 

"As Muslims throughout the United States and around the world celebrate Eid-al-Fitr, Michelle and I extend our warmest wishes to them and their families. This last month has been a time of fasting, reflection, spiritual renewal, and service to the less fortunate. While Eid marks the completion of Ramadan, it also celebrates the common values that unite us in our humanity and reinforces the obligations that people of all faiths have to each other, especially those impacted by poverty, conflict, and disease.

In the United States, Eid also reminds us of the many achievements and contributions of Muslim Americans to building the very fabric of our nation and strengthening the core of our democracy. That is why we stand with people of all faiths, here at home and around the world, to protect and advance their rights to prosper, and we welcome their commitment to giving back to their communities.

On behalf of the Administration, we wish Muslims in the United States and around the world a blessed and joyous celebration"

Eid Mubarak.

Muslim Americans 'build very fabric of our nation' (huh?)
