´We have communicated in no uncertain terms with every player in the region that that´s a red line for us and that there would be enormous consequences if we start seeing movement on the chemical weapons front or the use of chemical weapons."— Barack Obama, Aug. 20, 2012 "First of all, if you´ve got health insurance, you like your doctors, you like your plan, you can keep your doctor, you can keep your plan. Nobody is talking about taking that away from you."—Barack Obama, multiple versions What would you rather be: an American lost inside an ObamaCare exchange or a Syrian rebel?

To Propagandize The West, Lenin
Recruited A Corps Of “Useful Idiots

Contrary to what you might have heard, there really was a world communist conspiracy.Its purpose was not just agitation but propaganda. To bring it about, V.I. Lenin recruited a special corps of propagandists for what was to become the Communist International. For a fanatic like Lenin, it wasn´t enough merely to have a communist revolution in Russia. He wanted communism to take over the world, the fulfillment of Marx´s exhortation "Workers of the world, unite!" according to Stephane Courtois and Jean-Louis Panne, authors of "The Black Book of Communism: Crimes, Terror, Repression," published in 1999. Lenin also feared that unless other countries

For all of their mutual public admiration, Presidents Clinton and Obama react differently to political trouble. Bill moved to the middle, while Barack always moves left. So it´s no surprise that Mr. Obama is responding to his ObamaCare rollout slump by doing his best Elizabeth Warren imitation. Mr. Obama returned to his favorite theme of rising income inequality on Wednesday, which he called "the defining challenge of our time." He ought to know since few Presidents have done more to increase inequality than he has. Median household income has fallen since the economic recovery began, while the rich who own capital



No Excuse For Republicans
To Cave And Grant Amnesty

Immigration: Strong signs point to House Speaker John Boehner leading an amnesty cave-in that delivers millions of new Democratic votes. Republicans should man up and put border security front and center. The two words "Becky Tallent" resonate with conservatives in Congress the way "Howard Baker" did when Ronald Reagan welcomed the liberal Republican senator as chief of staff during Iran-Contra, bringing most of the Reagan agenda to a screeching halt; or the way the words "Susan Kennedy" did a decade ago when newly elected California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger crushed his supporters by hiring the hard-line Democratic operative as chief of staff. Speaker

A "potentially revolutionary" device to help women during difficult births has come from an unlikely source - a car mechanic from Argentina, who based the idea on a party trick. Apart from having five children of his own, Jorge Odon had no connection with the world of obstetrics. He did however have a talent for invention. "It comes naturally - for instance if I have a problem in my workplace I will go to bed and my head will think it through and I will wake up in the middle of the night with a solution," he says.

A top lawyer at the Internal Revenue Service told congressmen quizzing him over the tea party targeting scandal ´I don´t recall´ a ´staggering 80 times in fill or partial response to the committees questions´, a letter revealed today. [Snip] The stinging letter from House Oversight Committee chair Rep. Darrell Issa and regulatory subcommittee chair Rep. Jim Jordan, read: ´Your memory consistently failed when you were asked about information you shared with the Treasury Department´, adding his testimony ´suggests either a deliberate attempt to obfuscate your involvement in this matter or gross incompetence on your part.´

America is facing a wave of strikes by its fast-food workers on Thursday a day after Barack Obama warned that inequality in the USA had soared to the point that it now posed "a fundamental threat to the American dream". Low-paid workers in McDonalds, Kentucky Fried Chicken and other fast-food outlets in 100 cities across America were due to start rolling strikes to protest at the low level of America´s $7.25 (£4.45) federal minimum wage. The strikes are the latest part of a mushrooming publicity campaign for higher wages among those working so-called "McJobs", with fast-food restaurants seen as a

Mexican police have found a truck they suspect was stolen by common thieves while carrying a dangerous radioactive medical material that the United Nations said could provide an ingredient for a "dirty bomb". The truck was empty, but the radioactive material was found nearby, officials said. The truck was found on Wednesday close to where it was stolen outside Mexico City, said the official, who asked not to be identified in line with policy. The truck was stolen on Monday while it was taking cobalt-60 from a hospital in the northern city of Tijuana to a radioactive waste-storage centre, Mexican officials and the

Well, it’s not like there’s any danger of this stuff crossing the porous border into the US… Tepojaco (Mexico) (AFP) – Mexican authorities scrambled Wednesday to find a truck containing “extremely dangerous” radioactive material used in medical treatment that was stolen by two gunmen two days ago, officials said. The white Volkswagen Worker truck was transporting a teletherapy device containing cobalt-60 when it was stolen Monday in the central Hidalgo state town of Tepojaco, near Mexico City, according to the International Atomic Energy Agency.

In a wide-ranging economic stump speech Wednesday, President Obama focused laser-like on the growing gap between America´s rich and poor, despite polling that shows hardly anyone believes it´s the most pressing issue facing the U.S. The issue-pivot was an effort to help him move away from the drumbeat of criticism of his policies on health insurance reform and Iran´s nuclear program, one White House insider said on background. ´Rising inequality and declining mobility is bad for our democracy,´ he said during an event hosted by the far-left Center for American Progress. ´People get the bad taste that the system is rigged.´ ´I believe

A military couple whose engagement ring was secretly bought by actor Paul Walker came forward today after finally having their suspicions confirmed that the star was behind the act of amazing generosity. Soldier Kyle Upham and his new wife Kristen were in a Santa Barbara jewellery store in 2004 looking for a diamond ring shortly before he was sent on his second deployment back to Iraq. The couple quickly realized that the other shopper in the store was Fast And The Furious star Walker and struck up a conversation. Kyle revealed to the actor that he had just come back

With all of Bubba´s women, it turns out he had a thing for Mary Jane too. Former President Bill Clinton said Tuesday that despite his denials in 1992, he was always honest about his past marijuana use. ´I never denied that I used marijuana,´ Clinton told Jorge Ramos on Fusion TV. ´I told the truth.´ But during a campaign event before his first presidential election, then-Arkansas Gov. Clinton said he was no pothead. ´When I was in England, I experimented with marijuana a time or two, and didn´t like it,´ Clinton said then. ´I didn´t inhale, and I didn´t try it again.´ Clinton dissembled whtn

The Legacy Chase

Legacies as a concept are deeply embedded in our legal system. A person with assets writes a will designating which ones will go to which relative, friend, charity, or others. Not long ago some imaginative news media person decided to call the in-office record of elected officials “legacies.” In monkey-see-monkey-do fashion, the notion was being repeated by reporter after reporter. The distinction between a legacy of assets and an ephemeral one such as a politician’s record has been lost among the media. A legacy is a gift; thus, the politician is bestowing his policy or legislative gift on his grateful recipients. Or,

A witness in the case of the murder of Venezuelan Ambassador Olga Fonseca in Kenya 2012 told a court in Nairobi on Wednesday that the diplomatic mission would use the diplomatic bag for drug-trafficking purposes. "I am aware that the embassy was used to traffic drugs using the diplomatic bag," said former embassy driver Kevin Lameck, AFP reported. Fonseca, aged 57, was found strangled to death in her residence in Nairobi in July 2012. Seven people have been accused in the case, including Dwight Sagaray, the then first secretary of the embassy. Lameck´s statement was issued during cross-examination by Sagarya´s defense Lawyer Katwa Kigen.

Abortion in the Obamacare Exchanges

December 1 has come and gone with fresh assurances from the Obama administration that the federal exchange website, HealthCare.gov, will work for approximately 80 percent of its visitors. A review of the website, and the state of the health-care plans offered via the state exchanges, suggests that the problem of absent or incomplete information regarding plans that exclude coverage of elective abortions and abortion-inducing drugs and devices is far from fixed. The problem is multi-layered. First and foremost, the federal exchange continues to offer little or no information on abortion coverage, and what does exist there is profoundly misleading. A search

U.S. immigration officials are considering a proposal from Chinese investors to create a multibillion-dollar development in New York’s Catskills called "China City" -- raising concerns among critics about the potential cost to U.S. taxpayers and, according to one analyst, the possibility it could be a "stalking horse" for the Beijing government. A spokesman from the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services told FoxNews.com that the proposal for Thompson, N.Y., has not been approved but is under consideration. The mysterious proposed development appears to be a step beyond the types of ethnic enclaves

Democrats are getting desperate in the defense of their troubled health-care law, with one congressman comparing the law’s troubled rollout to problems with his baby granddaughter. “I’ve got a one-year-old granddaughter, and on Thanksgiving Day she had a number of little glitches, but we’re not ready to throw her away because of a glitch here and there,” Representative Emanuel Cleaver (D., Mo.) said on MSNBC on Tuesday. “Most things in the beginning stages are going to be difficult to pull off.”

Barack Obama´s inverse genius

The inverse genius of Barack Obama becomes more of a marvel each day. Is it a rule of politics that great measures shouldn’t pass on slender majorities? He enacted a huge bill with majorities running against it, and he and the system haven’t been the same since. Is it agreed that the "greatest good for the greatest number" should be the goal of all parties? He’s reducing the good of the many for the partial relief of the few. Is the justification for redistribution to spread wealth and well-being among as many as possible? He’s spreading angst and anxiety to millions and millions who,

During today´s White House Youth Summit, President Obama called on young people to do whatever they can to promote his signature health care law — including plying their customers with cheap booze. "If you are a bartender, have a happy hour," Obama said as the crowd laughed. "And also probably get health insurance because a lot of people don´t have it." Obama also encouraged young people who are student body presidents or workers at nonprofit organizations to help people get enrolled. "If you´ve got a radio show, spread the word on air," Obama added. Obama called on young people´s sense of patriotism to join

RUSH: Ladies and gentlemen, the assault on the traditional, standard American way of life continues unabated, and it is being conducted by a minority of people in this country. There´s an amazing poll out there today from the Investor´s Business Daily, Investors.com which illustrates just what an extreme minority today´s Democrat Party and the American left really is, in terms of minority, in terms of thinking, the body of thought in this country represented by them.

RUSH: In Washington, President Obama is out talking to his left-wing extremist buddies at the Center for American Progress, a town hall on the education arts recreation campus. He´s talking about the economy and income inequality. OBAMA: Starting in the late seventies, this social compact began to unravel. Technology made it easier for companies to do more with less, eliminating certain job occupations. A more competitive world let companies shift jobs anywhere -- and as good manufacturing jobs automated or headed offshore, workers lost of their leverage. Jobs paid less, and offered fewer benefits. As a trickle-down ideology became more prominent,

NBC´s Michael O´Brien had some fun yesterday paraphrasing President Obama´s latest infliction on the ears of America: "Obama said his signature health care reform law is going nowhere as long as he´s in office." "Going nowhere" could mean either "here to stay" or "unable to progress." A look at the text of the president´s remarks makes clear, as if you have any doubt, that he means it in the former sense: "We´re not repealing it as long as I´m president, and I want everybody to be clear about that. . . . We´re not going to walk away from it."
