Hey GOP: How´d That Gomez
Running as a Democrat-Lite
Thing Work for Ya?
American Thinker, by Lloyd Marcus    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 6/27/2013 6:45:11 AM     Post Reply
RINO Gabriel Gomez lost to Democrat Ed Markey in the special election to fill the Massachusetts U.S. Senate seat vacated by John Kerry. I say, "Thank God." We cannot allow Democrat-lite RINOs like Gomez to define the GOP. However, I have little hope that the "stuck on fear, panic, and stupid" GOP will get it. Despite their wasting tons of money backing Gomez, who agrees with 90% of the Democrat agenda, he still lost. And yet, I guarantee the GOP will interpret the loss as evidence that our party needs to move farther to the left.

Putin Succeeds in Getting
Kyrgyzstan to Close a Key
U.S. Airbase

The president of Kyrgyzstan on Wednesday signed a bill finalizing the closure next July of a U.S. airbase that has been a key hub for troops and supplies moving to and from Afghanistan since shortly after 9/11. One day earlier, visiting Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu assured President Almazbek Atambayev that plans to provide the Central Asian country with Russian weaponry and military equipment next year were being speeded up, and that the supplies would now begin to flow later this year. The timing of the two developments reflected, yet again, the role Moscow has been playing for years

Agents from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) have called on the public and members of the U.S. Senate to oppose the “Gang of Eight” immigration bill on the eve of its expected vote in the Senate. The Senate is the expected to take up the bill for vote on Thursday at the earliest, or by Friday, as Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid continues rushing it across the finish line. In a joint statement on Wednesday evening, USCIS National Council president Kenneth Palinkas and ICE National Council president Chris Crane said the bill,

The Supreme Court’s decision to overturn the ban on federal benefits for gay couples is sure to trigger a mammoth effort to change hundreds of regulations and laws across the breadth of government.The scope of the high court’s ruling goes far beyond Social Security checks and joint tax returns. Its implications extend to everything from policies at the Pentagon to the immigration reform bill now being debated in Congress. Within hours of the ruling, President Obama directed Attorney General Eric Holder and other members of his Cabinet to begin poring over relevant federal statutes and regulations

Obama’s War on Prosperity

President Obama’s Administration is beginning to feel like one endless freshman orientation, you remember the kind where they used to sit you down the first week of college and tell you you’d been oppressing blacks and women all your life and had to spend the next four years doing penance? Four years ago he began his Inauguration by announcing that fossil fuels were a thing of the past and that we would now get our energy from “wind, sun and soil.” He spent the next four years trying unsuccessfully to push cap-and-trade through Congress and subsidizing

Glenn Greenwald, the Guardian journalist who broke the news about the NSA surveillance program, has moved to pre-empt possible forthcoming reports from The New York Daily News and The New York Times that, he says, are part of an effort to smear his character. In a new column, Greenwald says that reporters from both outlets contacted him on Wednesday inquiring about IRS backpayments. The Daily News reporter also asked Greenwald about his participation in an LLC that had an interest in adult video distribution, as well as a decade old student loan default. Greenwald said that he was expecting

More White Votes Alone
Won´t Save the GOP

As immigration reform grinds its way through the U.S. Senate, the main focus has rightly been on the legislation´s policy consequences. But there are important political implications, especially for the GOP, that are worth examining. Some observers, including Phyllis Schlafly, Pat Buchanan and the Center for Immigration Studies, argue that if Republicans want to win back the White House, they should focus on white voters (who comprised 72% of the electorate in 2012) rather than worrying about Latinos. After all, new Census Bureau estimates are that 100,042,000 whites voted in 2008 but only 98,041,000 did in 2012.

With 70,000 fans awaiting him at the Houston Rodeo, the world’s largest, Toby Keith sits in his tour bus, as relaxed as the denim on his legs. He’s holding court with his usual crew–business partners, not groupies–and he’s mischievously daring me to eat the worm. Half the size of a golf tee, the caterpillar-like creature floats beneath an inch of mezcal, tequila’s smokier cousin. Keith instructs everyone to raise their red Solo cups–which, unlike mine, are devoid of bug carcasses–and slam their shots in one go. “It might give you visions the first time,”

Drug-filled Mexican airplanes land
nightly along southern border despite
$100 million sensor technology

In one California border town, at least four drug-laden, ultralight airplanes from Mexico land each night on U.S. soil, dropping off hundreds of pounds of narcotics then flying back to Mexico, all the while eluding a $100 million dollar detection system funded by American taxpayers. The U.S. Border Patrol’s inability to find and catch these planes, operated by the Mexican drug cartels and sometimes piloted by armed dealers, is among the emerging border security threats a House Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing will tackle on Thursday. The panel wants to highlight growing border security problems as Congress debates immigration reform

A founding member of the Ready for Hillary PAC’s Finance Council is a member of George Soros’ progressive donor network, The Democracy Alliance, and has links to controversial progressive organizations Media Matters for America and the Tides Foundation. San Francisco environmentalist Susie Tompkins Buell is one of the key founding members of the Finance Council for Ready for Hillary, a super PAC that hopes to build a strong coalition of donors and online supporters in preparation for Hillary Clinton’s expected 2016 presidential campaign.

Libya’s government earlier this month released a key terror suspect who U.S. officials say was involved in planning the Sept. 11 terrorist attack on U.S. diplomatic and intelligence facilities in Benghazi. Faraj al Chalabi, (also spelled Shibli) an al Qaeda terrorist also linked to the 1994 terrorist murder of two German tourists, was detained by the Tripoli government in March. However, al Chalabi was released June 12 based on claims that there was a lack of evidence to hold him custody. A U.S. official said the U.S. government has evidence al Chalabi was linked to the Benghazi attack but did not provide

Liberals have a new folk heroine today. Texas State Senator Wendy Davis is the idol of the left after her 11-hour filibuster in the Texas legislature helped derail a bill that sought to restrict late-term abortions and enforce new health regulations for clinics that perform the procedure.(Snip) President Obama took time out from his African tour to tweet about the Austin dustup in a post that read, “Something special is happening in Austin tonight” and added the hashtag #StandWithWendy. As far as the mainstream liberal media is concerned, not only is Davis the winner of the exchange

By a.d. 200, the Roman Republic was a distant memory. Few citizens of the global Roman Empire even knew of their illustrious ancestors like Scipio or Cicero. Millions no longer spoke Latin. Italian emperors were a rarity. There were no national elections. Yet Rome endured as a global power for three more centuries. What held it together? A stubborn common popular culture and the prosperity of Mediterranean-wide standardization kept things going. The Egyptian, the Numidian, the Iberian, and the Greek assumed that everything from Roman clay lamps and glass to good roads and plentiful grain

WASHINGTON — It may not be the Ritz, but it’s better than a jail cell. US spy-secrets leaker Edward Snowden is likely holed up in the Air Express Capsule Hotel in the transit zone at Moscow’s Sheremetyevo International Airport. The rooms are small, ranging from an 80-square-foot single-bed economy room to a 236-square-foot First Class triple. But the hotel is conveniently located in the airport transit area, which Russian President Vladimir Putin says puts it out of the reach of the law because travelers there have not yet passed through customs. Behind a door decorated with a blue sky,

Washington - Pornography, wine bottles and kazoos were among improper purchases made by IRS employees using their work-issued charge cards, according to watchdog report. Like a lot of big companies, the Internal Revenue Service allows some of its 90,000 employees to use company charge cards to buy work-related items, such as office supplies. However, employees made a host of "improper" purchases -- ranging from a dinner averaging $140 per person to Thomas the Tank Engine rubber wristbands -- according to the Treasury Inspector General for tax administration.

If I could reach into the heart of humankind and pluck one flaw from its unknowable depths, it would be our seemingly irresistible desire to tell one another what to do. Think of the results! The Democratic Party would vanish in an instant. The federal budget would shrink to the size of a compact car payment. And all religions would be Christianity at its best. We could still continue to enjoy our pride, lust, greed and gluttony while feeling morally superior to our neighbors’ pride, lust, greed and gluttony. We just wouldn’t be able

President Obama is fond of saying he’s not on the ballot again, because it deceptively suggests he’s no longer acting politically or with calculation for the next election. Obama isn’t running for reelection, but he is methodically setting the stage on which Democrats will fight for the nomination and the presidency in 2015 and 2016. Democrats who wish to succeed Obama will have to either align themselves with, or distance themselves from, his policies and methods while they court donors, votes, and momentum through 2015. Indeed, the Obama legacy is already on the march and will be a real-time factor

ATTLEBORO, Mass. -- In the final minutes of his life, Odin Lloyd sent a series of texts to his sister. "Did you see who I was with?" said the first, at 3:07 a.m. June 17. "Who?" she finally replied. "NFL," he texted back, then added: "Just so you know." It was 3:23 a.m. Moments later, Lloyd would be dead in what a prosecutor called an execution-style shooting orchestrated by New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez because his friend talked to the wrong people at a nightclub. Hernandez was charged on Wednesday with murder. Hernandez was cut

HUNTSVILLE, Texas -- Family and friends of Dorothy Booth waited 16 years - enduring two trials and countless appeals - for the measure of closure that came Wednesday evening when the woman who brutally beat and fatally stabbed their loved one was executed for her crime. Because Kimberly McCarthy´s execution marked the 500th in Texas since the state resumed carrying out capital punishment in 1982, it drew increased attention from protesters and the media. But for Booth´s loved ones, it was personal. "It doesn´t matter if this is the 500th execution or not," said Randall Browning, Booth´s godson.

Piers Morgan normally gets around 500,000 people to watch his pathetic show on CNN. Despite this, the man few Americans actually know by name had the nerve to say Wednesday that conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh is “too old and too boring” to be a regular on CNN’s revival of Crossfire. After playing a clip from a 1990 Crossfire featuring Limbaugh, Morgan said: From 1990 that´s Crossfire with a younger Rush Limbaugh making his case as a guest. Tonight the great news is that he’s not back on Crossfire. He´s too old and too boring.

Hong Kong officials have claimed their hands were tied over Edward Snowden because the U.S. government used a wrong middle name for the NSA whistleblower on extradition papers. Provisional arrest warrant documents listed his middle name as James, whereas it is Joseph. In other papers, he was just called Edward J. Snowden, Hong Kong´s Secretary of Justice Rimsky Yuen said. When Hong Kong asked the U.S. for clarification on Friday, they failed to respond in time for officials to stop Snowden´s flight to Russia on Sunday. ´Until the minute of Snowden´s departure, the U.S. government hadn´t yet replied to our
