Cry Baby Dana Milbank: ‘Ted Cruz
Bullied Republicans for Years’
PJ Media, by Michael van der Galien    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 8/2/2015 9:56:45 AM     Post Reply
Is Dana Milbank — one of the Washington Compost’s many leftist columnists — really a girly man, or do you think he’s just pretending? Finally, Senate Republicans are standing up to the bully who terrorized them the past two and a half years — and they’re finding out he isn’t so tough, after all. After Cruz on the Senate floor Friday called his fellow Republican, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.), a liar, his GOP colleagues have moved swiftly to shut down his antics. They voted in large numbers to renew the Export-Import Bank (McConnell’s scheduling of the vote, opposed by

Today one of America’s most popular talk radio hosts and best-selling author, Mark Levin, addressed a packed audience at the 37th annual National Conservative Student Conference hosted by the Young America’s Foundation. The audience, comprised of more than 200 students from around the nation, was thrilled to hear from one of the most influential minds in the conservative movement. In his speech, Levin discussed many of the ideas put forth in his new book, Plunder and Deceit, which is already winning accolades from many notable conservatives. Prior to his remarks, Levin sat down with Breitbart News and diagnosed the failings of the

Jeb Bush is spending hours in sessions from Florida to Maine preparing policy answers for Thursday’s first Republican debate, but he is also being mindful to avert any display of disdain for the man he will stand beside, Donald Trump, who has infuriated Bush by criticizing Mexican immigrants. (Bush is married to one.) Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin is crafting one-minute answers and 30-second rebuttals in case Trump or others continue attacking him as a flip-flopper on Common Core education standards and as a weak jobs creator, testing lines in mock debates with advisers playing Trump and other candidates.

Desperate Dems panicking over Hillary
as stilettos are unsheathed
American Thinker, by Thomas Lifson    Original Article
Posted By: magnante- 8/2/2015 9:46:33 AM     Post Reply
The sheer awfulness of Hillary Clinton’s candidacy is sinking in on the power elite of the Democratic Party, and signals are being sent. It is going to be stiletto time soon. The lethal combination of her scandals and her unappealing, wooden, personality that reeks of phoniness could bring down not only her presidential campaign, but the entire down-ticket of the Dems. Thus it is that the semi-official party organ, the New York Times is signaling major donors, campaign workers, and apparatchiki of the party that it is time to think the unthinkable, and turn to the unlikeliest of saviors, Joe

The brother of Cecil, the lion killed in Zimbabwe by an American hunter last month, is not dead, a researcher monitoring the pride told Reuters, contradicting media reports that Jericho had been killed. "He looks alive and well to me as far as I can tell," said Brent Stapelkamp, field researcher for the Hwange Lion Research Project which is monitoring the lion with a GPS tag. A group called the Zimbabwe Conservation Task Force posted on its Facebook page that Jericho had been killed at 4 p.m. on Saturday, a report picked up by some Western news media that was rapidly spread

One Minnesota woman who was forced to turn to IVF to expand her family never expected to get pregnant naturally - and when she surprisingly did, she chose to have an abortion. Hannah Stein was already a mother of four with her husband of 17 years, Patrick, when the unplanned pregnancy caught them off guard. The couple had undergone several rounds of IVF to conceive three of their children, and finally felt like their family was complete - so they terminated the pregnancy. Now, Hannah has opened up to Cosmopolitan.com to explain why the decision was right for them. The idea of abortion

Hillary Clinton. What can be said about Hillary Clinton that hasn’t been said? Nothing, really. She’s all things to all people and nothing at the same time. She has all the excuses of her husband, but none of the charm. Aside from which restroom she uses, what exactly is her appeal? Hearing Hillary Clinton give a speech is like sitting in on a college civics class taught by someone who thinks she’s speaking to kindergarteners. Condescension squared is about as close to an accurate description as you can get. With all the charm of sweat socks and the warmth of the

DANA POINT, Calif. — Scott Walker said Saturday that he loves the “team of rivals” concept employed by Abraham Lincoln when it comes to building a cabinet. The Wisconsin governor told mega donors at the Koch donor network summit here that he would look to other Republicans seeking the nomination if elected, specifically former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina and retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson and “any of the governors I’ve worked with.” “There’s a great team of people I’d take from this field of candidates,” he said. “We could plug them right into the next administration.” Asked if there is a person who reflects

Islam´s ´Fair-Haired Women´ Problem
American Thinker, by Raymond Ibrahim    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 8/2/2015 8:44:43 AM     Post Reply
The Muslim penchant to target “white” women for sexual exploitation -- an epidemic currently plaguing Europe, especially Britain and Scandinavia -- is as old as Islam itself, and even traces back to Muhammad. Much literary evidence attests to this in the context of Islam’s early predations on Byzantium (for centuries, Christendom’s easternmost bulwark against the jihad). According to Ahmad M. H. Shboul (author of “Byzantium and the Arabs: The Image of the Byzantines as Mirrored in Arabic Literature”) Christian Byzantium was the “classic example of the house of war,” or Dar al-Harb -- that is, the quintessential realm that needs to

Which is worse, Obama´s plan to
shut down coal plants, or
McConnell´s ´plan´ to fight it?
American Thinker, by Newsmachete    Original Article
Posted By: ScarletPimpernel- 8/2/2015 8:44:22 AM     Post Reply
President Obama is about to release a plan to fight imaginary global warming by shutting down many coal fired power plants. Coal fired power plants produce a lot of carbon dioxide, which is a key element in the imaginary theory that CO2 causes global warming. I say imaginary because (1) there hasn´t been any global warming in 18 years, (2) man-made CO2 accounts for only about 3% of global CO2, which is mostly natural, and (3) CO2 is a tiny percentage of the upper atmosphere, and is not present in enough volume to be substantially trapping heat. But Obama´s plan

The left is always on the wrong side of an issue. Here are just two recent examples. In a second I’ll make it three. Example 1: Planned Parenthood is exposed like never before through a brilliant undercover sting operation. The left’s response? Demonize the messenger and target him with legal action. Never mind that growing babies inside the womb are being poisoned, dismembered, crushed, squeezed, yanked, ripped, torn apart, sucked out with a vacuum, and killed? And never mind that for some once living babies it doesn’t end there as their butchered bodies are then put through a strainer, poured into glass pie

Imagine an alternative scenario. Instead of Barack Obama in the White House, it is a Republican president who negotiated the Iran deal and now demands Sen. Chuck Schumer’s support.What would Schumer do? The answer is obvious — he’d say no, the deal stinks. Unfortunately, that scenario makes it just as obvious what Schumer will do in reality. Tip O’Neill was wrong. All politics are not local. All politics are personal. The career of Democrat Schumer is best served by standing with Democrat Obama. That is what he will do. Everything else is detail. He is the party’s anointed leader in the Senate,

Talk show host and bestselling author Mark Levin believes the “ineffective” leadership of congressional Republicans is alienating conservatives and pushing some of them to embrace Donald Trump. In the first installment of a three-part interview with The Daily Caller over his new book, “Plunder and Deceit,” Levin shared his views on the latest actions of the Republican-controlled Congress and how it’s affecting presidential politics. In his opinion, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell knocking down Sen.

Gun used in Garland, TX terror attack
connected to Fast and Furious

A 9MM handgun used by Nadir Soofi, one of the terrorists who attacked the Garland, TX Mohammed cartoon festival, has been traced to the Fast and Furious program, according to the Chicago Tribune. Five years before he was shot to death in the failed terrorist attack in Garland, Texas, Nadir Soofi walked into a suburban Phoenix gun shop to buy a 9-millimeter pistol. At the time, Lone Wolf Trading Co. was known among gun smugglers for selling illegal firearms. And with Soofi´s history of misdemeanor drug and assault charges, there was a chance his purchase might raise red flags in the federal

My entire 1980s childhood was a lie. In 1991, actor Paul Reubens was arrested for indecent exposure at an adult movie theater in Sarasota, Florida. The story made worldwide headlines, as Reubens had risen to fame over the previous decade as the beloved oddball children’s entertainer Pee-Wee Herman. With hit movies and his Pee-Wee’s Playhouse TV show, the bizarre man-child had become an icon of 1980s popular culture, and in one fell swoop, Reubens had shattered his character’s image and stunted his own career. I don’t think I was ever the same after that. I thought about Pee-Wee’s not-so-big adventure—and how things have

In the summer of 2011, the GOP candidate sitting on top of the polls was Texas Governor Rick Perry. By October of 2011, it was Herman Cain who was leading the polls with Mitt Romney in second. Rick Perry went into a freefall after his “Oops” moment at one of the what seemed like 1000 GOP debates. Two candidates in the summer of 2011 were languishing at the bottom of the polls: Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich. Both of whom went on to win primary season races. Santorum won the Iowa caucuses, and Gingrich won the South Carolina primary. As

Bad press has so far been like fertilizer to Donald Trump’s popularity. But his defense of his sons’ sport of slaughtering exotic African animals could be the kill shot to his presidential aspirations now that possibly both Cecil the lion and his brother Jericho have been slaughtered. In case you don’t know, the Trump boys went on a kill safari in 2012, and proudly posed with the African leopard and water buffalo they had slaughtered. Another photo shows them laughing beside a noose from which hangs an alligator. Does it get worse than two great white hunters and an animal noose

  



Downton Abbey Cast Reveals

With two weeks of filming remaining on Downton Abbey, cast members Michelle Dockery, Laura Carmichael, Hugh Bonneville, Joanne Froggatt, Elizabeth McGovern, and Penelope Wilton traveled to Los Angeles to tease the drama’s final season to the Television Critics Association on Saturday. The cast had already said goodbye to locals, Highclere Castle, and a few cast members whose storylines had ended, and the mood onstage at the Beverly Hilton Hotel was bittersweet. But the famously tight-lipped cast, perhaps feeling a bit nostalgic, seemed to be more forthcoming about plot details of the upcoming season than in years past. “The final season

The Iran nuclear deal tops Secretary of State John Kerry´s agenda as he meets with foreign ministers from Egypt and Qatar this weekend. Kerry will skip a visit with Israel, the main U.S. ally in the Middle East and a vociferous opponent of the deal. U.S. officials, who would only speak on condition of anonymity, told the AP that Kerry´s omission of Israel does not mean the Obama administration has given up trying to convince Israel of the merits of the deal. It has been over two weeks since Kerry last spoke with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Kerry´s trip is meant

You may be a liberal if you believe that allowing working people to keep a few more of the dollars they earned themselves is a “boondoggle” and a “gimmick.” You may be a Massachusetts liberal if you think that the annual sales tax holiday weekend “diverts” money from “education,” by which you mean teachers unions, and from “the MBTA,” by which you mean handouts for T hacks who retired with full pensions at age 41. By this definition of diversion, every time you drive past a bank and don’t rob it, you have “diverted” the money inside by not stealing it from

We are supposed to accept at face value that politicians are so rotten and have been so corrupt that the public is understandably angry and therefore embraces extreme candidates such as Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and buffoons and xenophobes such as Donald Trump. The voters have been done wrong, the theory goes, so they really cannot be blamed for embracing a raving lunatic for president of the United States. Really? Frankly, none of this rings all that true. First, while this is not exactly Morning in America, it is not the Great Depression nor the Civil War. Times at home have

THE most important question of the moment, as the Republican Party prepares for the first of 1,162 or so presidential primary debates, isn’t really what Donald Trump will say or do on stage. O.K., that might be the most immediately interesting question, and the best reason for people who aren’t professionally required to watch every single G.O.P. debate to tune in on Thursday night. But what matters most, politically, about the “I Am Trump” spectacle isn’t what the Donald does but whom he helps. Trump won’t be the Republican nominee, but the eventual nominee may end up owing him a debt of

It was mid-July 1990, and for several days the U.S. intelligence community had been watching Saddam Hussein mass his forces along Iraq’s border with Kuwait. Most of us in the administration of President George H.W. Bush—I was then the top Middle East specialist on the National Security Council—believed that this was little more than a late-20th-century version of gunboat diplomacy. We figured that Saddam was bluffing to pressure his wealthy but weak neighbor to the south into reducing its oil output. Iraq was desperate for higher oil prices, given the enormous cost of the just-concluded decadelong war with Ayatollah Khomeini’s Iran
