Chopped liver? Bill Clinton
angry Dems don´t revere him
like GOP does Ronald Reagan
Washington Examiner, by Paul Bedard    Original Article

Maybe it’s because “Bubba” just doesn’t have the same je ne sais quoi as the “Gipper,” but Bill Clinton is apparently jealous of the reverence Republicans give former president Ronald Reagan. According to the much-talked-about New York Times Magazine feature story on the world around Hillary, Bill and Chelsea Clinton, the former president is described as miffed that Democrats don´t treat him like Republicans do Reagan. Amy Chozick reports: “People close to Bill Clinton have told me repeatedly that it irks them that Democrats don’t talk about the dignified, slimmed-down, silver-haired former president with the same reverence Republicans give Ronald Reagan.” Her story,

U.S. to adjust rules to let banks

U.S. treasury and law enforcement agencies will soon issue regulations opening banking services to state-sanctioned marijuana businesses even though cannabis remains classified an illegal narcotic under federal law, Attorney General Eric Holder said on Thursday. Holder said the new rules would address problems faced by newly licensed recreational pot retailers in Colorado, and medical marijuana dispensaries in other states, in operating on a cash-only basis, without access to banking services or credit. Proprietors of state-licensed marijuana distributors in Colorado and elsewhere have complained of having to purchase inventory, pay employees and conduct sales entirely in cash, requiring elaborate and expensive security measures

Mitt Romney, Republican Party´s 2012 presidential nominee, on Friday fueled the talk that former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush will join the 2016 GOP race, along with several others including embattled New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Ohio Gov. John Kasich. Ruling out another run during a "Today" show interview, Romney also said that likely Democratic presidential challenger Hillary Clinton is beatable “because I think people recognize that the country is just not doing what it needs to do.” In waving off a third bid, Romney said, “This is a time for Chris Christie, Mike Huckabee, Jeb Bush, Mike Pence, John Kasich,

Fox News Poll: Voters blame
Clinton and Obama for Benghazi
Fox News, by Dana Blanton    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 1/24/2014 11:07:08 AM     Post Reply
Majorities of American voters blame former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama for what happened at the U.S. consulate in Benghazi. The 2012 terrorist attack took place on the anniversary of September 11 and resulted in the deaths of four Americans, including a U.S. ambassador, at the diplomatic facilities in Benghazi, Libya. A new bipartisan Senate intelligence committee report found that the attacks were preventable and that the State Department, headed by Clinton at the time, had failed to increase security at the U.S. consulate there. Sixty percent of voters blame Clinton for what happened, according to a Fox

IRS going after conservatives

Stop me if you’ve heard this before. A conservative group applies for 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status with the IRS in full compliance of the law, but gets jerked around for a couple of years in a process that should just take a few months. The IRS tax-exempt unit then starts demanding private information that isn’t germane to the application, but which worries members about just why the IRS would want this kind of information about opponents to the current administration. According to the Obama administration, this is old news from 2010-12, and the targeting of political opponents by the IRS stopped

Apparently, Sean Hannity’s recent threats to leave the “Socialist State of New York” may be the cover for a more elaborate plan — namely, a potential run for political office. Though the Fox News commentator has publicly mused about moving to Florida or Texas after his children graduate from high school/he finds a way to move his massive staff out of New York, he’s allegedly mentioned in private that he would like to run for public office once he does move. According to The Hill, Hannity’s pipe dream may actually not be a pipe dream: A source who was on Hannity’s Fox News

Michigan seeks visas to

DETROIT — Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder asked the federal government Thursday to set aside thousands of work visas for bankrupt Detroit, a bid to revive the decaying city by attracting talented immigrants who are willing to move there and stay for five years. The Republican governor has routinely touted immigration as a powerful potential force for growing Detroit’s economy, saying immigrant entrepreneurs start many small businesses and file patents at twice the rate of U.S.-born citizens. “Let’s send a message to the entire world: Detroit, Michigan, is open to the world,” Snyder said at a news conference. The proposal involves EB-2 visas,

“Yes, Marcus. They died in vain.” Thus begins Jim Ghourley’s column in Foreign Policy. (Snip) By now we expect Obama to lie; lie for the sake of lying; misrepresent for the heck of it, even when the truth can safely be admitted in candor; to spit in the soup for no reason that even he can think of. And nobody’s mad at Obama. For they know the truth. It isn’t Obama that is frightening since he’s just being himself. It is the circumstance that 50% of the electorate wanted him — and may want him still — that is absolutely

Suburban NY chief arrested on
child porn charge

A suburban New York police chief who taught sex-abuse awareness classes to children has been accused of downloading and sharing more than 120 images of child pornography. Mount Pleasant Chief Brian Fanelli, 54, who has been in office about two months, was arrested Thursday by Homeland Security agents. In a complaint filed with the court, an agent says Fanelli told investigators that he first viewed child pornography as sex-abuse research for the classes he was teaching at a grade school and a middle school. But he added that he then began viewing the images "for personal interest," the complaint said.

Austin, Texas • Have you seen U.S. Rep. Steve Stockman? The suburban Houston Republican and fierce conservative is mounting a long-shot challenge from the right against Senate minority whip John Cornyn but has made virtually no public appearances in Texas as questions mount about his campaign finances. Now, he’s stopped showing up for his day job, too. Stockman has missed 17 straight House votes since Jan. 9— including one on the $1.1 trillion omnibus federal spending package he promised on Twitter to vote against. That’s unusual since, even though Stockman has a reputation as a Capitol Hill renegade, he missed only

Obama’s Hammer & Sickle

Barack Obama doesn’t just have a pen and a telephone, he’s got a hammer and sickle too. The battle lines of the promised Marxist Revolution are being perfected as we go about our daily lives, and Obama’s hammer and sickle will drop on the Western world now that it’s 2014. Obama’s ‘Fundamental Transformation of America’ is only Stage 1 of a breathtaking world takeover plan. Obama and the fomenting-for-revolution Marxists won’t wait until 2016 to deliver their ‘New Socialist USA’. This is just for openers: Emboldened by Barack Obama’s twice-repeated reminder “I have a pen and a telephone” to bypass Congress whenever he

Obama angers U.S. friends, but his bid

Barack Obama has achieved acrimony among numerous sectors of Americans now fighting with each other bitterly. His ongoing efforts to screw up relations with America´s closest allies have enjoyed some success. Obama´s undercut the Poles, Czechs, Israelis, angered the Brits, Brazilians, Egyptians and insulted the Germans, Japanese and Indians. And Obama single-handedly made Vladimir Putin look like the Nobel Peace Prize winner over the American´s fictional red line in Syria. But Obama´s bid to ruin the U.S.-Canadian relationship is doomed to failure.

ObamaCare D-Day in March

A document coming from the administration has recently come to light that discloses the entire ObamaCare program is in jeopardy of collapse. Of course, the White House did not inform the American people of this prospect but was compelled to post the news on a federal website -- away from the inquiring minds of millions of Americans who may suffer even more from ObamaCare. So much for Barack Obama´s boast that his administration would be the most transparent in history. While the web portal of Healthcare.Gov has received a lot of attention, the true problem lies like an iceberg underneath the

Last night on The Kelly File,, conservative columnist Charles Krauthammer took aim at President Obama’s assertion, printed in the New Yorker, that the conservative media was to blame for turning him into a “caricature” and hindering his agenda. “It’s rather unseemly if you are the commander-in-chief, the leader of the free world and the most powerful man on earth who could reduce pieces of the planet to a cinder on his command, to get so whiny,” Krauthammer complained to Megyn Kelly. And besides, he pointed out, Obama already has tons of media allies in print, television, and Hollywood. “It’s what Lenin would

Speaker of the House John Boehner appeared on The Tonight Show Thursday night and chatted with Jay Leno about Washington politics, working with President Obama, and having to lead a huge group of ideologically diverse Republicans. After some bantering and Boehner sharing his life story, Leno asked about all the recent GOP infighting and the tea party’s role in Congress. Boehner said “it’s all a fight over tactics” and thinks the tea party has brought “great energy to the political process.” What he objected to in his now-infamous rant in which he lashed out at outside conservative groups, he explained,

Dinesh D´Souza, a best selling author and creator of the documentary "2016: Obama´s America" has been indicted for election fraud and causing false statement to be made to the FBI. The indictment alleges that D´Souza reimbursed some people for giving campaign contributions to a Senate candidate from New York. The amount that was allegedly donated was $20,000. Reuters: Federal law in 2012 limited primary and general election campaign contributions to $2,500 each, for a total of $5,000, from any individual to any one candidate. "As we have long said, this Office and the FBI take a zero tolerance approach to

Merle Haggard knows all about hard living, uncertain love and workers ground down by depressing jobs. As one of country music´s greatest living singer-songwriters, Mr. Haggard in the 1960s was an architect of the Bakersfield sound—an earthy, California-born style that was more firmly rooted in country´s traditions than the polished productions recorded in Nashville at the time.Mr. Haggard—who will perform Sunday at the Grammy Awards—grew up in Bakersfield but soon ran afoul of the law in the 1950s, landing in prison after trying to rob a roadhouse. As an inmate at San Quentin, he was in the audience in 1958

De Blasio should fix the streets

No doubt Mayor de Blasio was relieved to beat it out of town Thursday and leave behind inconvenient questions about the botch of this week’s snowstorm. Plainly he is more comfortable on a stage in Washington, where he declared to his fellow mayors that it’s their job “to address the root causes of inequality.” Now, this week’s snowstorm was not on the scale of the one that so damaged Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s reputation in 2010, much less the one that forever tarnished John Lindsay many decades earlier. But it carries a warning especially apt for a man who views himself as

Reloading the firing squad
Washington Post, by Tammy Bruce    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 1/24/2014 8:08:11 AM     Post Reply
Has the left’s attempt to use the lethal-injection process to ban the death penalty backfired? Consideration of firing squads for implementing the death penalty is not a fringe issue and would bring back the humaneness the left claims it wants in the process. As often as I can, I laud the importance, value and decency of the death penalty. As a feminist, I’ve spent a great deal of my adult life as an advocate for women, educating on violence against women and agitating for justice for women in a system that far too often forgets the victims on the receiving end

Winter whiteout carnage as massive

A massive pile up during a whiteout storm in Indiana on Thursday afternoon killed three people and injured more than 20 others. Chaotic scenes of jackknifed trailers and the mangled wreckage of cars packed across three lanes of the highway could be seen after visibility dropped to nearly zero at about 3.30pm. More than 40 vehicles, including semitrailers and cars, were involved in the deadly crash near Michigan City, but wintry conditions and the scale of the crash site slowed rescue efforts. One driver was still trapped in their car at 6.30pm, three hours after the crash happened, as rescue crews worked

As Ray Nagin trial nears,

Potential jurors screened for the scheduled Jan. 27 corruption trial of former New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin will be asked about their understanding of the indictment, and their ability to presume Nagin innocent until proven guilty. They will not, however, be asked a series of questions proposed by Nagin´s defense attorney, Robert Jenkins, that inspired opposition among prosecutors, a federal judge has ruled. Nagin is accused of accepting bribes and kickbacks during his tenure as mayor. Jenkins made his case last week for keeping a handful of questions about potential jurors´ understanding of the difference between a charge and a conviction. One

Satan at the State House
Tribune Media Services, by Jonah Goldberg    Original Article
Posted By: Judy W.- 1/24/2014 7:37:27 AM     Post Reply
The Constitution is powerless against Satan. Earlier this month, the state of Oklahoma received a proposal from New York–based Satanists to build near the state capitol a seven-foot-high statue of Baphomet, a goat-headed pagan idol. The Satanists’ letter boasted that “the statue will also have a functional purpose as a chair where people of all ages may sit on the lap of Satan for inspiration and contemplation.” Now, while the Satanists are real, there’s a lot of fakery involved. It’s a stunt — a clever one — exploiting the constitutional injunction against governmental favoritism towards religion. The Oklahoma capitol has a statue

Conservative welfare reforms are part of an ´historic mission´ in the tradition of the fight to end slavery, Iain Duncan Smith claimed today. The Work and Pensions Secretary said his determination to cut benefits and get people back to work is like the work of William Wilberforce who campaigned for the end of the slave trade and Lord Shaftesbury, who enacted laws to protect women and children in Victorian factories.

The Democrats´ new much-vaunted master plan for annihilating the Tea Party movement calls for aggressive class warfare, demagoguery, and lying about the beliefs, motives, and goals of Tea Party supporters, Sen. Chuck Schumer revealed yesterday. Echoing President Obama´s infamous "bitter clingers" remarks, the New York Democrat argued that Tea Party supporters are cartoonish figures who are easily ridiculed. Invoking all the usual liberal cliches about conservatives, Schumer said the Tea Party is successor to "the Know-Nothings, Prohibitionists, Father Coughlin, and Huey Long." In other words, he believes the movement is a collection of hicks, yahoos, neo-Luddites, fascists, male chauvinists, and racists fearful
