NYT Revives Benghazi
Video Lie To Save Hillary
Investor´s Business Daily, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 12/30/2013 7:23:39 PM     Post Reply
Benghazi: The attempt to rehabilitate Hillary Clinton begins as the New York Times revives the long-ago debunked "video clip" excuse for the well-planned Benghazi massacre while denying documented al-Qaida involvement. These days it´s all the news that is fit to be made up that graces the pages of the once-proud Gray Lady that has morphed from a self-proclaimed "newspaper of record" to the house organ for the Obama administration. The latest example is a piece on the Benghazi terrorist attack of Sept. 10, 2010, titled, "A Deadly Mix in Benghazi." It resembles the infamous White House talking points — on steroids. The Times

Obama Lawlessness
Spreads To Supreme Court

Racial Politics: Obama race-mongers first mugged mortgage bankers, then went gunning for car lenders. Now they´re trying to block the Supreme Court from taking away their main weapon: disparate impact. For the second time in 12 months, the administration has sabotaged a Supreme Court case challenging its disparate-impact discrimination claims, which rely on statistics rather than actual acts of racism to "prove" discrimination in housing and lending. Its diversity police have been using the dubious civil rights theory as a cudgel to shake down lenders for billions in race-bias settlements. Late last year, the Justice Department settled a case in Minnesota that threatened

Over 3,000 Cuban doctors

Over the last 12 months some 3,000 Cubans, mostly doctors, have arrived in the United States after deserting one of the Venezuelan government´s social programs they staff. This accounts for a 60% increase as compared with 2012. In 2012 there were about 5,000 refugee Cuban doctors and nurses in the United States coming from all over the world. Through December 1, 2013 this figure had surged to 8,000, 98% of them came from Venezuela. These are estimates by Dr. Julio Cesar Alfonso, head of the South Florida group Solidarity Without Borders Inc. (SWB), which helps Cuban medical professionals who try

Top Republican smacks Obamacare higher-up

Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Chief Operating Officer Michelle Snyder is on her way out after 41 years working for the federal government, but she won´t leave without absorbing some final slings and arrows from critics of the Affordable Care Act. Rep. Darrell Issa, the hard-charging conservative Republican who chairs the House Oversight Committee, criticized Michelle Snyder on Monday for ´bypassing the recommendation of CMS´ top security expert´ before green-lighting the October 1 launch of healthcare.gov. Those experts, Issa said in a statement, recommended a delay ´after independent testers raised concern about serious vulnerabilities from a lack of adequate

President Obama´s party is nervous that he might face impeachment proceedings--or at least it wants potential donors to think so.

Two days before his swearing in, Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio on Monday appointed a lifelong educator, Carmen Fariña, as the next leader of the New York City school system. The appointment puts Ms. Fariña, 70, in charge of the nation’s largest school system at a time of sweeping change, though with a mandate to rethink many of the Bloomberg administration’s educational policies of the last 12 years. “We cannot continue to be a city where educational opportunity is predetermined by ZIP code,” Mr. de Blasio said, describing how Ms. Fariña as chancellor will help all children realize their potential.

For Pennsylvania Turnpike drivers, resistance to E-ZPass may not be futile just yet, but it´s getting more and more expensive. Toll increases that will take effect at 12:01 a.m. Sunday will be 12 percent for cash payers and 2 percent for users of E-ZPass, the electronic collection system. It is the fourth straight year in which cash customers are taking a bigger hit, with the overall result being that cash tolls will be nearly 40 percent higher than E-ZPass rates. (Snip) A trip in a passenger vehicle across the entire 359 miles of the turnpike´s mainline will cost a cash

Missing the Lessons of Benghazi

It is hard to find any real legitimate new content in the NYT’s recent “investigative” report on the tragic failure of U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East and the devastating attack that killed four Americans in Benghazi 15 months ago. The report states that it has confirmed that al-Qaeda was not involved in the attack. It reaches this lame conclusion because it was unable to find a direct connection between core al-Qaeda and the attackers. The very nature of al-Qaeda is that it is both operational and inspirational. The attackers were radical jihadists who hated the West and the

A few months ago the Atlantic explained why no one should oppose extensions to unemployment insurance. The unemployed were jobless through no fault of their own. There were three applicants to every job but not enough jobs. There wasn’t enough demand for labor. The labor market was “broken,” it explained. What was needed was to create a demand for jobs. At least they never went as far as to suggest what Nancy Pelosi adventured: that unemployment insurance was itself a form of employment. (Snip) Wow! It’s that simple. In answer to the question of where the money was going to

The Good, the Bad, and

The New York Times’ much-vaunted weekend report on Benghazi is tough reading — and not just because it purports to tell the story of one of America’s darker days since September 11, 2001. It’s tough to read for anyone who’s familiar with comprehensive after-action reports of terror attacks, firefights, IEDs, mob violence, or other significant kinetic events in war (often known as SIGACTS). By comparison with those, there’s just not much in the Times report. But the report is not without some merit, so let’s break it down into the good, the bad, and the pathetic. First, the good: Times reporter David

MSM Glosses Over Irony of Global
Warming Scientists Trapped in Antarctic Ice
Newsbusters, by P.J. Gladnick    Original Article

Somewhere far, far to the south where it is summer, a group of global warming scientists are trapped in the Antarctic ice. If you missed the irony of that situation, it is because much of the mainstream media has glossed over that rather inconvenient bit of hilarity. As an example here is an Associated Press story that avoids mentioning the real mission of the scientists aboard the icebound Russian ship: The Snow Dragon icebreaker came within 7 miles (11 kilometers) of the Russian ship MV Akademik Shokalskiy, which has been stuck since Christmas Eve, but had to retreat after the

Of all the advances achieved by the Roman Empire before its collapse in the fifth century, one of the most unprecedented was the infrastructure to ensure the efficient removal of animal and human waste from urban areas. Incredibly enough, some 1,600 years later, a city that is home to some of the most advanced scientific research on Earth finds itself unable to deal with disgusting conditions triggered by waste from seals, sea lions, pelicans, seagulls and other birds. That is the proper context with which to see the maddening saga of the stench emanating from the rocky areas and cliffs at La

A federal judge in South Bend has provided some last minute relief to a host of Catholic entities across northern Indiana. A preliminary injunction blocks enforcement of the so-called “contraceptive mandate” in the federal government’s Affordable Care Act. As a result, the University of St. Francis in Fort Wayne now has what the University of Notre Dame was denied: Court ordered protection for employees from the contraception mandate due to take effect January 1st.

Last week, the Wall Street Journal´s Alison Gopnikreported on research from professors Jacqueline Wooley at the University of Texas and Paul Harris at Harvard that showed a surprising degree of sophistication among preschool kids. Apparently, though they spend a lot of time in fantasy pursuits, they´re actually quite good at distinguishing fantasy from reality: Children understand the difference. (Snip) On reading that, my first thought was that these kids are actually a lot better at distinguishing between fantasy and reality than the teachers and administrators in the schools that they attend.

Networks Miss ´Climate Change´ Irony of
Ship Stuck in 10 Feet of Antarctic Ice
Newsbusters, by Jeffrey Meyer    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 12/30/2013 5:23:54 PM     Post Reply
A Russian research vessel has been stuck in thick ice in the Antarctic since Christmas morning, and predictably the big three networks are enjoying the novelty of such an event. However, despite the obvious news story, ABC, CBS and NBC have all missed one great irony in their reporting. On Monday December 30, all three networks covered the story, but only CBS even used the words “climate change” when discussing the trapped ship. All three failed to point out the irony that this event is an embarrassment for those pushing the liberal “climate change” narrative. The network’s decision to ignore the irony

They went in search evidence of the world’s melting ice caps, but instead a team of climate scientists have been forced to abandon their mission … because the Antarctic ice is thicker than usual at this time of year. The scientists have been stuck aboard the stricken MV Akademik Schokalskiy since Christmas Day, with repeated sea rescue attempts being abandoned as icebreaking ships failed to reach them. Now that effort has been ditched, with experts admitting the ice is just too thick. Instead the crew have built an icy helipad, with plans afoot to rescue the 74-strong team by helicopter. The expedition is

MSNBC: Harris-Perry And Panel
Ridicule Mitt Romney´s Black Grandson

In a nauseating display of mean-spirited ignorance, MSNBC´s Melissa Harris-Perry and her panel of five ridiculed Mitt Romney´s black grandchild as something "that´s not like the others." The MSNBC segment was a look back at 2013, and for some reason a Romney family photo that shows former Massachusetts governor with a grandchild on each knee was cherry-picked for mockery. The only apparent reason for the ridicule was purely based on the race of Kieran Romney, the governor´s adopted grandchild who happens to be black.

On Sunday’s Melissa Harris-Perry show, the eponymous host led a panel of entertainers in a rundown of the “photos of the year,” which somehow included a Romney family picture that “a lot of people had emotions about,” according to MHP. The setup seemed to leave room for unlimited comic potential, but the panel immediately honed in on the race of Kieran Romney, adopted grandson of former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, who is black. The baby, not Mitt. “Everybody loves a baby picture,” Harris-Perry said, “and this was one that really, a lot of people had emotions about this baby

The 41 employees of Extreme Dodge in Jackson, Mich., are very familiar with trade-ins, but this year they’re learning about trade-offs as they come face to face with the new realities of health care. A few workers say they’re getting a great deal, but most have a severe case of sticker shock. “I feel like I’ve been taken to the cleaners,” said Neal Campbell, a salesman. The news was presented at the company’s annual benefits meeting earlier this month, when employees were told that the health insurance plan that the auto dealership had provided its workers was canceled because it doesn’t comply

The NFL says referees erred in not penalizing the San Diego Chargers for an illegal formation on a missed 41-yard field goal attempt by Ryan Succop of the Kansas City Chiefs with four seconds left in regulation on Sunday. Succop was wide right on the kick, and the Chargers went on to win 27-24 in overtime to claim the AFC´s final playoff spot. The NFL says in a statement released Monday that had the penalty been assessed by referee Bill Leavy´s crew and the ball moved up 5 yards, it would have allowed the Chiefs to attempt a 36-yard field

Before you break out your favorite EDM song, just consider this: these glow-in-the-dark pigs were created in the name of science. In an effort to further study human genetic disorders, scientists in Southern China injected pig embryos with fluorescent jellyfish DNA; when these 10 piglets are put under a black light, they emanate an eerie green glow. This successful integration of genetic material into the animal’s natural make-up, made possible through a technique developed by reproductive scientists at the University of Hawai`i, could be instrumental in creating more cost-efficient and effective treatments for disorders like hemophilia. “[For] patients who suffer

PARIS (December 30, 2013) The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has notified drug maker Genzyme that its new drug for the treatment of multiple sclerosis is not ready for approval for the American market. The FDA told the French pharmaceutical company Sanofi, which is the parent of Genzyme, that the companies had not submitted sufficient evidence to show the benefits of Lemtrada. The European Medicines Agency approved the drug for use in the EU earlier this year. Sanofi wants to market Lemtrada as a treatment for relapsing multiple sclerosis. It is eager to bring new drugs to the market at a time when it
