Hillary Clinton’s Appeal Survives Scrutiny, Poll Says
New York Times, by Jonathan Martin & Megan Thee-Brenan    Original Article

Hillary Rodham Clinton appears to have initially weathered a barrage of news about her use of a private email account when she was secretary of state and the practices of her family’s foundation, an indication that she is starting her second presidential bid with an unusual durability among Democratic voters. Americans now view Mrs. Clinton more favorably and more see her as a strong leader than they did earlier in the year, despite weeks of scrutiny about her ethics, a New York Times/CBS News poll has found. And nearly nine in 10 Democrats say the nation is ready to elect

Royal rumble! Charlotte Windsor versus
Charlotte Clinton: Comparing the strikingly

They were both born with a silver spoon, into enormously famous families and they share the same name. Newborn Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana of Cambridge and 8-month-old Charlotte Clinton-Mezvinsky are growing up on opposite sides of the pond but in strikingly similar worlds - and with chubby cheeks to match. While the U.S. banished the British monarchy in 1776, Americans still treat their political dynasties like the Clintons with some of the same ceremonial pomp. When former first-daughter Chelsea Clinton gave birth in September, it was clear she was channeling the Duchess of Cambridge´s own royal baby moment by donning

An area tree removal company came to a stray cat´s rescue Tuesday after a Chippewa Falls resident ran out of ideas to get the feline out of her dead pine tree. The cat, who had been stuck in the tree for five days, was perched on a 40 foot pine on Lori Boutin´s property. "We called the Town of Lafayette Fire Department...but they don´t have a ladder or truck that can get down in the wooded area," Boutin said. News 18 discovered Boutin´s problem after being directed to Voyaging Vet Tech and Services´s Facebook page, who was trying to help Boutin find someone to get the cat down.

More Republicans oppose Christie than
other potential 2016 candidates: poll
NJ Advance Media, by Jonathan D. Salant    Original Article

More than 4 in 10 Republicans say they would not consider voting for Gov. Chris Christie for president, the second poll in two days showing him as the most unpopular of the potential GOP nominees. The CBS News/New York Times survey said 42 percent of Republicans saying they opposed Christie, most than any other potential or actual GOP presidential candidate. Just 27 percent said they would consider voting for him, tying him with former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania for ninth place. In Santorum´s case, 24 percent said they wouldn´t consider voting for him. U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida led

With 6 Democratic debates, Clinton
may get more airtime than she wants
Washington Post, by Jennifer Rubin    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 5/5/2015 11:21:18 PM     Post Reply
Right now, only Hillary Clinton and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) are running for the Democratic nomination for president in 2016. Nevertheless, the Democratic National Committee announced six debates. That is likely to work out to six to 12 hours of airtime, depending on the length of each debate. If Sanders is the only opponent, Clinton will have three to six hours of questioning — more than she has had to undergo since she lost the nomination in 2008. On one level, this is comical. We could be obliged to watch Clinton and someone with virtually no chance at the nomination talk — seemingly forever.

Hillary Rodham Clinton threw down the immigration gauntlet on Tuesday and pledged that she would extend President Barack Obama´s executive orders past their current boundaries if she were to succeed him in the White House. ´I will fight for comprehensive immigration reform and a path to citizenship,´ she told a Las Vegas roundtable of illegal immigrant high school students, including one who said he was transgender and another who identified herself as a lesbian. In addition to the ´DREAMers´ Obama has protected from deportation – those brought to the U.S. as minors – Clinton said she wants the program extended

On the same day he nominated a new military chief, President Obama encountered renewed criticism over his war on the Islamic State and was forced to confront a real possibility that the terrorist group may already have agents operating inside the U.S. White House officials stressed Tuesday that it’s too early to determine whether the two Muslim gunmen who tried to attack a Texas cartoon contest over the weekend were Islamic State fighters, as the group has claimed and as one of the gunmen suggested on social media. Republicans are blasting the president over his broader strategy to defeat the

Newly minted Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina went toe-to-toe with liberal journalist Katie Couric on Monday, sparring for 45 minutes on abortion, Hillary Clinton and qualifications for President. Yahoo correspondent Couric complained about Fiorina´s criticism of Clinton: "You´ve had some unkind words for Hillary Clinton. You said that she was not trustworthy and she hasn´t accomplished very much. I think people might think, ´Well, she was the senator from New York and she was the Secretary of State.´" Couric chided, "How can you really make those claims?" This came after Couric had her own

PHOENIX — The heavily armed gunmen who attacked a cartoon contest near Dallas over the weekend were probably inspired by the Islamic State, according to U.S. officials, who cautioned that they have so far seen no indication that the assailants were directed by the group. Law enforcement officials said Tuesday that they were still analyzing the shooters’ electronic devices, including phones and computers, to determine whether others may have been involved in the plot or encouraged it. The men — Elton Simpson, 30, a Muslim convert, and his roommate, Nadir Soofi, 34 — are not known to have had formal

Two illegal aliens in Walker County, Texas, have pleaded guilty to murdering and dismembering a 16-year-old high school student with a baseball bat and a machete in a national park nearly two years ago. According to investigators, the crime was a revenge killing ordered by the infamously violent Latin American gang Mara Salvatrucha, or MS-13. Cristian Zamora, 22, and Ricardo Leonel Campos Lara, 19, both from El Salvador, pleaded guilty on April 17 to aiding and abetting each other and others with the murder of 16-year-old Josael Guevara on Sept. 23, 2013, the Houston Chronicle reported.

Marrakesh, Morocco - Bill and Chelsea Clinton are convening foreign leaders here at a lush golf resort set in a palm grove this week to showcase their foundation’s charitable work. But the conference also highlights new controversies engulfing the Clinton family’s vast philanthropic enterprises as Hillary Rodham Clinton begins her presidential campaign. (Snip) An Exxon Mobil spokesman said this week that the company has decided not to be involved in the Clinton Global Initiative this year. The oil company said its decision was unrelated to recent scrutiny of the foundation, but this is the first year it has not been a sponsor since

Senate passes budget even as
impasse on spending continues

Posted By: Dreadnought- 5/5/2015 10:41:16 PM     Post Reply
Senate Republicans celebrated on Tuesday after passing the first joint budget resolution in more than five years, but that success is just the start of the much more difficult task of funding the government. Republicans said the next step will be for the Appropriations Committee to start drafting spending bills that meet the newly approved framework, which means cutting $496 billion in non-defense spending over the next decade. The budget adheres to domestic spending caps included in the 2011 Budget Control Act, also known as the sequester, and uses nearly $40 billion in off-budget funds to boost defense spending to

Phoenix - Sharon Soofi says finding out that her son Nadir was one of the two Garland, Texas, shooters was a punch in the gut. "I don´t know how I´m gonna live with it," she said. "When your child dies under these kinds of circumstances, you just ... it just leaves you numb and empty." Nadir Soofi was 34 and born in Dallas. He was raised Muslim and spent six years living with his family in Pakistan. He returned to the U.S. to attend the University of Utah. His mother says he ran a carpet cleaning business in Phoenix and had an 8-year-old son whom he adored. Soofi was sharing an apartment with his friend Elton Simpson.

The Clintons’ worst defender in chief

Oh, Bill. There you go again. We knew you were going to pop off, but did it have to be so soon — and so tone-deaf? The Clinton deal is “two for the price of one,” as Bill Clinton famously promised in 1992. But 23 years later, that bargain comes with different baggage attached. Then it was the intimations of Hillary Clinton as co-president, Machiavelli in a pantsuit. Now — and let us pause to appreciate the role reversal and the country’s journey on issues of gender — it is the awkward reality of running not only while married to an ex-president but also as a name partner in the sprawling entity of Clinton Inc.

(Video) - Riots work. The Baltimore riots achieved a number of goals for the political left, which is why the left defended the riots as a quasi-legitimate outgrowth of fully justified anti-police, anti-white feeling – in a majority black city with a majority black police force and a majority black city council, in a country with a black president and a black attorney general. This is nothing new: Back in the 1960s, as Fred Siegel of the Manhattan Institute writes in his terrific book, The Future Once Happened Here, “riot ideology” took hold. “Riot ideology,” wrote Siegel, sprang from the belief that in the wake of race riots, "more money

Hillary Clinton got some much-needed good news on Tuesday when the Democratic National Committee announced that it would hold six presidential primary debates starting this fall. (Snip) Sure, the debates will give every Bernie Sanders, Jim Webb and Martin O´Malley an equal-ish platform to Clinton that they could never afford -- literally -- otherwise. But, viewed broadly, the debates are likely to do Clinton more good than harm. Remember that Clinton and her team want to make sure you and everyone else knows that she is not taking this nomination for granted -- despite the fact that the field running

Outgoing Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan isn´t acting like a lame duck when it comes to going after Boko Haram, the murderous Islamist army that has terrorized the northern part of Africa’s most populous country. In recent weeks, government forces have taken the fight to the terrorist army, rescuing hundreds of women and girls held captive in Boko Haram’s forest stronghold in Borno state. Amid the cheers for Jonathan, who lost his bid for re-election to Muhammadu Buhari on March 31, some critics are wondering what took so long. As welcome as the new offensive is, some say it reeks of last-minute

If you’ve been glued to Fox News all of tonight, you may have noticed two separate anchors criticizing the actions of the group behind the “Draw Mohammed” cartoon contest in the span of ten minutes. Greta Van Susteren ended her show by scolding the American Freedom Defense Initiative and its founder Pamela Geller for putting law enforcement at risk, and mere moments later, Bill O’Reilly kicked off his program by repeatedly saying what Geller and the AFDI did was “stupid.” O’Reilly burnished his own anti-jihadist credentials as he said, “Insulting the entire Muslim world is stupid… It does not advance the

Las Vegas - Illegal immigrants must be able to gain full citizenship, but Republicans want to make sure immigrants can never be more than “second-class” Americans, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton said Tuesday. In sharply partisan remarks, Clinton said she wants to work for a massive overhaul of the nation’s patchwork immigration system that includes full citizenship, but she blamed Republicans for “inaction” and worse. She pledged to expand presidential orders to protect more people from deportation, a tactic Republicans call an illegal end run around Congress.

WASHINGTON — The Senate on Tuesday adopted a GOP budget that paves the way for an assault on President Barack Obama´s health care law this summer and a partisan showdown over spending bills this fall. The Senate passed the nonbinding measure by a nearly party-line 51-48 vote. The House adopted it last week. The measure sets a potential path for a balanced budget within a decade. It promises to cut domestic agencies and safety net programs like Medicaid and food stamps, carve up transportation spending and student aid, and curb tax breaks for the poor. Republicans don´t plan to adhere

A Texas car collector has made the discovery of a lifetime in the form of five classic pre-war automobiles stored for four decades in an Austin barn.

We have written a number of times about how government agencies, including the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration here in the U.S., have systematically adjusted temperature history to make the past look colder. They apparently do this, usually surreptitiously and without explanation, in order to stoke global warming hysteria. See, for example, He Who Controls the Present Controls the Past and Inside the Global Warming Scandal. Now Mike Brakey, an engineering physicist and heat transfer specialist, has caught NOAA revising historic temperature data for Maine–as always, to make the past look cooler

Marilyn Hartman, who became known as the “serial stowaway” after numerous attempts to sneak onto airplanes, was arrested at an airport twice last month — this time in Chicago — after she was spotted in a restricted area without a ticket, authorities said. On April 23, and then again the next day, Hartman was taken into custody on suspicion of misdemeanor trespassing at O’Hare International Airport, a police spokesman in Chicago said. Officials said that, since both of the alleged crimes were misdemeanors, she was likely released soon thereafter, but did not have an exact date when she was set

Last night at a public hearing on the budget in Prince George’s County, Maryland, a flyer with the following headline was circulated: From Baltimore to Jerusalem It’s the Same Game. In 10 years Chris Van Hollen and Ben Cardin sent 1.2 billion dollars of Maryland Federal taxpayer money to the Apartheid state of Israel to build schools, roads and other infrastructure while saying Maryland doesn’t have the money to help develop our communities. The flyer goes on to attack the “Israel lobby,” which allegedly is using Black politicians to split the African-American vote so as to “ensure that Blacks don’t
