Obama: "Where I Can Act On
My Own Without Congress,
I´m Going To Do So"
Real Clear Politics, by Ian Schwartz    Original Article

PRESIDENT OBAMA: North Carolina still has a higher than average unemployment rate so this is important to this state. Folks aren´t looking for a handout, they´re not looking for special treatment. There are a lot of people who are sending out resumes every single day, but the market, the job market is still tough in pockets around the country. And people need support, a little help so they can look after their families while they´re looking for a new job. So Congress should do the right thing and extend this vital lifeline for millions of Americans. Of course, that´s just

Junk Science: Senate Democrats want TV networks to promote climate-change hysteria and follow the lead of Britain´s state broadcasting company, which sent its top executives to a green propaganda training seminar. The mainstream media, long a house organ for Democrats, are about to come under pressure by Senate Democrats led by Sens. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and Brian Schatz, D-Hawaii, who are gathering signatures from colleagues on a letter to the networks telling them they´re ignoring global warming, according to a report in the National Journal. They are seeking to impose sort of a climate change "fairness doctrine" designed to ignore inconvenient truths

Obama´s One-Man Rule Amounts
To A ´Gradual, Quiet Coup´

Power: President Obama has vowed to bypass Congress and govern by the stroke of his pen and the bark of phone orders in place of the law. But a new IBD/TIPP poll shows the public is getting very wary of such abuses. With a confidence about the rightness of his ideas, the president declared Tuesday at his first Cabinet meeting of the year that "we´re not just going to be waiting for legislation in order to make sure that we´re providing Americans the kind of help they need. I´ve got a pen and I´ve got a phone." Referring to plans to shovel



Senate Benghazi Report Damns
Both Obama And Clinton

Terrorism: The bipartisan Senate report on the Benghazi attack is damning to both President Obama and ex-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. She may be sorry she asked, "What difference does it make?" The terrorist attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi killing our Libyan ambassador, Chris Stevens, and three others was bad political timing for President Obama, coming less than two months before Election Day in 2012. For a while afterward, Obama peddled the ludicrous story it wasn´t planned terrorism but a spontaneous demonstration against an anti-Muhammad YouTube video. In the second presidential debate, when exposed on misrepresenting the attack, Obama

Shocking photos emerge showing U.S.

Shocking images depicting U.S. soldiers burning the bodies of what appear to be Iraqi insurgents, have emerged today. The explosive photographs, reportedly taken in Fallujah in 2004, have already sparked a Marine Corps investigation, but many of the 41 gag-inducing shots are just too grisly to publish. Two pictures show a Marine pouring what looks like gasoline on the remains of enemy soldiers and another two images appear to show the remains go up in flames. Two more capture the horrifically charred bodies. The sick snaps were exclusively obtained by TMZ, who turned them over to the Pentagon last week, triggering the

Cost of Obamacare´s insurer

A program to refund insurance companies for losses incurred during the implementation of President Obama’s health care law could impose significant costs on American taxpayers, but under regulations issued by the Department of Health and Human Services, those costs won’t be known until the summer of 2015. Republicans led by Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida and Rep. Tim Griffin of Arkansas have called for repealing what’s known as the risk corridors program, which has also been described as a bailout of the insurance industry. Under the program, insurers have to estimate the amount of money they expect to pay out in

King had a dream, Obama has

If the Rev. Jeremiah Wright believes — as he’s claimed in the past — that he and President Barack Obama will be buddies again when he’s out of office, the firebrand preacher didn’t do himself any favors Wednesday. Wright, Obama’s former pastor, called for King’s “revolution of values” and a rejection of the “three-headed demon” of “racism, militarism and capitalism” — the foundations of Western society, he said. “Every Tuesday morning, there’s a kill list that the president decides who they’re going to kill this week,” Wright said. Wright, pastor emeritus at Trinity United Church of Christ on the South Side, drew



Chris Christie claims

Just because something is true does not mean it is believable. Which is Chris Christie’s real problem. His “see no evil; hear no evil; my staff is evil, not me” defense for closing down bridge lanes in Fort Lee, N.J., allegedly because the mayor there refused to endorse his reelection, may be true. But who is going to believe it? “Christie is the kind of leader who says it’s my way or I shut down your highway,” as Stephen Colbert put it the other night. Christie wants to be the Republican nominee and win the presidency in 2016. Once again, the Republicans

Gay Orgy,Gone! ´Wolf of Wall Street´
Censored, Banned Overseas

Many Hollywood films are trimmed or censored in more conservative regions of the world, so it nearly was a given that Martin Scorsese´s The Wolf of Wall Street -- a three-hour raunch-fest featuring sex, drugs and 569 variations of the F-word -- would face plenty of heat (in the U.S., Scorsese had to make trims to secure an R rating, versus an NC-17). Red Granite Pictures, the production and financing company that made the $100 million opus, knew going in that the Middle East and parts of Asia might not take too kindly to some of the film´s more decadent

Washington reporters parrot

Washington´s political reporters, in lightning knee-jerk speed, have embraced President Obama´s Robin Hood war on “income inequality,” the latest example of the president´s success in using the bully pulpit to steer attention to his new populist campaign. The issue took center stage Wednesday during a briefing from the nonpartisan Business Roundtable meant to focus on the group´s agenda to push economic growth from 2 percent to 4 percent, but instead saw several reporters pestering the group´s president and chairman about the minimum wage and income distribution. At first, Randall Stephenson, the Roundtable chairman and CEO of AT&T, and Roundtable President

It is set to become the largest rocket ever built, dwarfing the rockets that took man to the moon and paving the way for manned missions to Mars. Nasa today reveal stunning new pictures of its SLS (Space Launch System), which will eventually be capable of lifting 130 tonnes into orbit. The rocket will be used to ferry astronauts to the International Space Station, and to help us explore the outer reaches of the solar system. It is even hoped the craft could play a role in manned missions to Mars, being able to launch ´stepping stone´ bases into orbit. ´The potential use of

If you thought the 13-candidate clogged 2012 Republican presidential primaries were too crowded and confusing, then you might want to skip the 2016 process -- because the Republican Party is suggesting that 32 might be interested in running. The Republican National Committee is operating a 2016 Presidential straw poll that lists all 32, including former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz. It´s all part of a fundraiser. The poll asks users to pick their three top choices. No results are available yet. The list: - Sen. Kelly Ayotte, of New Hampshire -

Driven to distraction by the amorous betrayals of her husband, Jackie Kennedy embarked on a wild fling with ballet dancer Rudolf Nureyev while she was still in the White House, according to a new tell-all book. Nureyev, who was nine years younger than the First Lady, was also once spotted with Jackie’s brother-in-law Robert F. Kennedy ‘kissing each other passionately in a phone box’, the book claims. Much has been written through the years about President Kennedy’s dalliances while in office. His mistresses were famously said to include actresses Marilyn Monroe and Angie Dickinson, mafia moll Judith Exner and a 19-year-old White

Former Ambassador to China, Utah Gov. and GOP presidential hopeful Jon Huntsman Jr. will be the new chairman of the Atlantic Council, the international relations think thank announced Wednesday. “It is an honor to have been chosen as chair of the Atlantic Council at a time when it is poised to play an increasingly important global role,” Huntsman said in a press release. “We are at an historic inflection point where consistent and constructive U.S. leadership alongside our European allies — and in close cooperation with other global partners — will be decisive in shaping the future.” Huntsman will succeed interim Chairman

House Armed Services Committee Chairman Buck McKeon (R-Calif.) will announce his retirement on Thursday, according to two sources close to McKeon. "Mr. McKeon will be making his announcement tomorrow morning that he´ll be retiring," a source close to McKeon tells The Hill. The powerful lawmaker´s retirement is likely to spark a battle for his chairmanship — and lead to a competitive race for his House seat. Democrats are hopeful they could compete for McKeon´s slightly Republican-leaning district in Southern California now that he´s retiring. President Obama won 48 percent of the vote there in 2012.

Thursday´s edition of the Federal Register contains 185 new agency submissions, including an update to the cost of the National School Lunch Program. Nutrition: The price tag on Michelle Obama´s National School Lunch Program was inaccurately reported in the Federal Register earlier this month, so the Food and Nutrition Service at the U.S. Department of Agriculture is correcting the cost. The National School Lunch Program and School Breakfast Program, which provides free and low-cost healthy meals to more than 31 million students, are now projected to cost taxpayers $16.4 billion for 7.8 billion million students in 2014. The costs will

If there was every any question of whether the Left would recycle the “War on Women” campaign effort for 2014, there isn’t now. The release of the Shriver Report – with its the lengthy, anecdote-filled document; catchy website and social-media campaign; day-long events; and presidential pow-wow – shows that the Left is doubling down on the message that women are under siege in America, and only bigger government can save them. The publication ably describes some of the hardship and challenges facing American women, though there is the obligatory use of exaggerated statistics. Beyonce (who is naturally a lead author for

The exchange is partnering with Live Nation, the Beverly Hills, Calif.-based producer of Sasquatch and other shows, to send health agency reps to concerts to connect with the population best known as "young invincibles."

Secret Mandela Autobiography
Reveals Soviet Sympathies

In Nelson Mandela´s celebrated 1994 autobiography, Long Walk to Freedom, the late South African leader and Nobel laureate was careful to distance himself from communism. However, in the original manuscript--quietly published online in 2011 and 2012, and only recently noticed--Mandela openly sympathizes with communism and the Soviet Union, and calls the "US brand" of "imperialism" the "most loathsome and contemptible." Mandela´s original text, smuggled out of prison by fellow inmate Mac Mararaj (now the official spokesperson for South Africa´s fourth democratic president, Jacob Zuma), was written in the 1970s amidst a period of decline in American power, scholar James Myburgh notes

While Chris Christie’s numbers have held firm amidst recent controversies, the New Jersey governor has lost ground in a potential 2016 match-up against prospective Democratic contender Hillary Clinton. The latest NBC News/Marist poll shows Christie trailing Clinton by 13 points in a presidential contest. That’s a ten-point drop: Last month, Christie trailed the former secretary of state by just 3 percentage points in the same poll. Clinton leads Christie 50 percent to 37 percent in the latest poll. Christie, nonetheless, remains the leading candidate for the Republican nomination in 2016. With 16 percent of the vote, the poll shows him leading

The Senate Intelligence Committee released on Wednesday a report blaming the State Department and the intelligence community for failing to prevent the September 11, 2012, attacks in Benghazi that resulted in the death of U.S. ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans. “The committee found the attacks were preventable, based on extensive intelligence reporting on the terrorist activity in Libya — to include prior threats and attacks against Western targets — and given the known security shortfalls at the U.S. Mission,” the Senate committee said in a statement released with the report. The committee said that the State Department was warned for

While proponents of the Common Core claim that the new standards are focused on “college and career readiness,” more evidence is surfacing that a central purpose of the initiative is social justice and income redistribution indoctrination. Social justice indoctrination in Common Core is not just limited to language arts. Radical Math is a group founded by Jonathan Osler who teaches math and community organizing at a Coalition of Essential Schools (CES) high school in Brooklyn, New York. Its website states Radical Math is "a resource for educators interested in integrating issues of social and economic justice into their math classes and curriculum.” The

A Chinese firm claims it is getting closer to allowing parents to pick the embryo most likely to succeed. Researcher believe that 50-80% of what determines IQ could be inherited. Now a Chinese firm is mapping the genes of people who are gifted in maths in a bid to isolate the genes that make them smarter that the average person. Shenzhen-based BGI is mapping the genes of math geniuses, and appealing via its web site for more to take part in the controversial study.

Creating structures in space that astronauts can live in has become a priority for Nasa. With a manned mission to Mars on the agenda, and plans for lunar exploration underway, scientists are increasingly looking towards unconventional construction methods. The most promising of these is 3D printing, which could make building a lunar home in space a matter of pressing a button and letting a robot do the work. Nasa has now provided funding to the University of Southern California to develop a specific 3D printing technique known as Contour Crafting. According to researchers, Contour Crafting could allow computer-controlled machines to build houses within 24

What is good for the goose isn’t good for the gander. Helena Andrews at the Washington Post has this reckless column about Andrew Breitbart and Shirley Sherrod. It it, Andrews falsely states that Andrew Breitbart “published a doctored video” of Sherrod’s racist confession at an NAACP convention. In fact, Breitbart published all that had been given to him, including the portion of the video where Sherrod is redeemed by confessing that she should not have been making decisions on the basis of race. Andrew also published the portion where Sherrod admits making adverse decisions toward a white farmer because of his
