Barack Obama -- our appeaser in chief
Fox News, by Danielle Pletka    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 1/25/2014 1:02:09 PM     Post Reply
As bloodshed and nuclear menace mount in the Middle East, China and North Korea flex their military and nuclear muscles in Asia, and America retreats almost everywhere, how will history judge Barack Obama? Is he the wise Dwight D. Eisenhower who understood the limits of American power and used military might as an instrument of peace? Or the appeaser Neville Chamberlain, whose naivete accelerated Hitler’s rise and led to World War II? Neither analogy rings true. But there are others whose choices more closely mirror Obama -- and they do not inspire optimism about where we are going. Winston Churchill was said to

A dating service that pairs wealthy “sugar daddies” with “sugar babies” for “mutually beneficial dating arrangements” has endorsed Texas Democratic gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis. SeekingArrangement.com’s Friday announcement followed a recent report in the Dallas Morning News which detailed a number of discrepancies in Davis’ personal narrative, including that she left a man 13 years her senior the day after he made the last payment for her Harvard Law School education.

Eric Cantor Mingling with Global
Elite on Taxpayer-Funded Trip

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) is on a taxpayer-funded trip to Davos to attend the World Economic Forum, where the global superclass regularly meets to discuss multinational issues that are important to them--like immigration reform. Cantor told the Huffington Post on Friday that his trip to Davos, described as a "veritable Disneyland of ostentatious cocktail parties underwritten by global banks, technology companies and other well-heeled concerns," was an "official trip." He is reportedly leading a congressional delegation there. Back at home, Cantor has in the past spoken at the Aspen Ideas Festival, which similarly gathers the "Party of Davos"-minded "intellectuals" about

Sept. 11 museum´s planned

NEW YORK — When the 9/11 Memorial Museum opens in mid-May, it will have shards of the fallen World Trade Center towers. It will have walls covered with portraits of the nearly 3,000 victims, and the watch worn by Todd Beamer when he declared, "Let´s roll," and helped launch an attack on the Flight 93 hijackers. It will have a burned-out ambulance that raced to save people, and helmets of firefighters who battled dust and flames to reach those trapped in the ruins. It will also have a $24 admission fee, which directors say is needed to maintain the site, a cost

Outrage over Benghazi Investigation

Judicial Watch’s Corruption Chronicles blogger Irene Garcia, formerly with the Los Angeles Times, recently wrote on the latest Benghazi developments: It’s no coincidence that, days after prominent conservatives--including Judicial Watch--and family members of Benghazi victims demanded action and accountability, House leaders released classified files documenting the Obama administration’s lies and cover-up involving the terrorist attack… Last week, JW joined forces with surviving Benghazi family members, U.S. military leaders, and other top conservatives to call House Speaker John Boehner on the sad job he’s doing investigating the tragedy. In a scathing letter, JW and the other signatories blasted the Republican leader

An Allen West comeback?

Allen West may have lost his seat in Congress, but the Florida Republican is not done with elected politics. West told radio host Jesse Lee Peterson Thursday that another Allen West candidacy would likely be coming in 2016. “I will definitely come back,” said West, who lost his seat in 2012 to now-Congressman Patrick Murphy by fewer than 3,000 votes. This year, for the midterm elections, West said, he was going to work to help other people get elected, specifically: “more military, minority conservatives.” “In the 2016 cycle, we’ll look to getting back in and running myself,” he said in



For GOP, Adjusted 2016
Primary Calendar Is All
About The Money
Time, by Zeke J Miller    Original Article

The Republican National Committee took steps Thursday to change how it will pick its presidential candidate in 2016, the latest effort by the national party to tighten control over the primary calendar. The motivation behind the change is simple: it’s all about the money. In the summer of 2012, Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign was cash-strapped as most of its resources were tied up until he officially became the GOP‘s nominee at the Republican National Convention, allowing the Obama campaign months to define him with a television blitz. The RNC, is looking to free up those general election dollars sooner by moving

RNC ´primary reform´ aimed
at the base
American Thinker, by Rick Moran    Original Article
Posted By: mikkins2- 1/25/2014 11:13:09 AM     Post Reply
The Republican National Committee is looking to reform the presidential primary process, and in so doing, weaken the influence of the party´s conservative base. Is this a feature? Or a bug? More like a marriage of convenience. The length and bitterness of the 2012 primary season weakened Mit Romney going into the general election. All those silly debates did nothing to enlighten the American people and only served as a point of contention between candidates. So while compressing the primary season may be a sound political strategy, it has the side effect of diluting the conservative vote.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio weighed in on the hydraulic fracturing debate in his state during a press conference Thursday in Washington, D.C. “The one thing I’m firm about is I don’t see any place for fracking,” de Blasio told reporters at the U.S. Conference of Mayors when CNSNews.com asked what his policy would be “as far as developing oil, natural gas and other traditional energy sources in the state.” “The science simply isn’t reliable enough; the technology isn’t reliable enough, and there’s too much danger to our water supply, to our environment in general,” de Blasio said. “So, my view

The Fight for Principle in the GOP

For millions of Americans, politics has lost its meaning. There is growing dissatisfaction with both party organizations. More and more Americans tell pollsters they are Independents. The way to reclaim the Republican Party is not by seeking some illusory “middle ground” between principled conservatism and radical liberalism. The way to bring the GOP back at the national level is to hold the party leadership to the pledges it has made for generations. A lot has been said and written lately of what journalists and call the “Republican Civil War.” We need to remember that whenever Republicans have a party clash, journalists



Pentagon: U.S. not capable of

American intelligence and security agencies are not currently capable of detecting when foreign nations are building nuclear weapons or ramping up their existing programs, according to a newly released Pentagon report that faults a range of U.S. agencies. “The nation is not yet organized or fully equipped” to detect clandestine nuclear activities across the globe, and in most cases “current solutions are either inadequate, or more often, do not exist,” according to the report, which was compiled over three years by the Pentagon’s Defense Science Board. More nations than ever are pursuing nuclear arms. However, the United States does not have the

RNC for 2016 GOP convention bid

Republicans may be choosing between gambling or pot when they pick their 2016 convention site. Las Vegas has emerged as the clear early front-runner to host the party’s next presidential nomination convention despite its “Sin City” reputation. Denver is seen as another serious contender, though the city’s “Mile High City” moniker had taken on a different connotation since Colorado legalized marijuana last election. The choice between the two cities — both in crucial swing states the GOP needs to win — had a few RNC members nervous about potential scandals during this past week’s winter meeting, but most were chortling

Last week, conservative Bloomberg columnist Megan McArdle and American Enterprise Institute fellow Scott Gottlieb debated New York magazine’s liberal columnist Jonathan Chait and former Assistant Surgeon General Douglas Kamerow over the proposition that Obamacare is “beyond rescue.” If you have an hour and a half of free time and a nearby brick wall to repeatedly smash your head into, you can watch the whole debate here. In the event that you’re unfamiliar with Salon dot com, suffice to say, I stand with Chait and Kamerow. I didn’t write about this earlier because, even though McArdle and Gottleib won the debate

MICHIGAN CITY — Cars were mangled, and some were burned despite the blowing snow. Other vehicles were crushed between jackknifed semi-tractors, so entwined that it was difficult to tell them apart. People were screaming, but emergency responders couldn´t see many of them as they quickly tended the victims amid frigid conditions. Within seconds, traffic along snow-covered Interstate 94 in northern Indiana had become a mile-long pile of debris after wide-out conditions swept in during Thursday´s evening commute. Three people were killed and nearly two dozen were injured. "It was such a devastating scene, you don´t know where to start,"

On the eve of the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, notorious partial birth abortion pioneer Martin Haskell was ordered by the state of Ohio to shut down his Cincinnati-area abortion business on or before February 4. Haskell failed to meet Ohio´s medical standards as he was unable to obtain a transfer agreement with area hospitals to handle all cases of abortion complications against the mother. In a statement to the Cincinnati Enquirer, a spokeswoman for the Ohio Department of Health said: "There is a history of problems with this particular ambulatory surgery facility and operator ...

Call me a cockeyed optimist but many of the recent reports about our energy resources and discoveries in medical advances conjure up visions of an America enjoying low gas and energy prices; low unemployment, high wages and low cost medical treatments. None of these changes will be possible, however, unless we have a government willing to allow them. American citizens (legitimate citizens, not just residents) can vote to elect a government that is not beholden to special interest donors and lobbyists. While this sounds unlikely at the moment, it is not impossible especially if the comatose voters who got us

Republican and business advocates for immigration reform said Friday they were encouraged by signs that the House GOP plans to take up the issue after months of delay. But Gov. Rick Snyder (R-Mich.) and former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg (I) warned the party not to get bogged down by details or scared off by criticism from a minority of conservative opponents. “If you are against the fastest-growing voting bloc in the country, you and your party don’t have a future,” said Bloomberg, who quit the GOP in 2007.

It was just after noon Oct. 18 when Gerri Jordan walked into the bedroom of her Gilbert home and found her ex-girlfriend and business partner, Essay Anne Vanderbilt, on the floor, curled into a fetal position with a plastic bag taped around her head. “When I found her... I thought ‘Why now? Why now are you doing this,” Jordan said, her eyes welling. Jordan, 67, had dated Vanderbilt, 60, for about five years but had become by this time just friends and business partners. Jordan knew Vanderbilt had struggled with depression, but said she didn’t seem particularly down; they had

In a recent interview, President Obama called out both Fox News and Rush Limbaugh for putting enough pressure on congressional Republicans to keep them from having a dialogue with them, but CNN’s Don Lemon wanted to know Friday night why exactly the President of the United States is taking shots at conservative media outlets when he should really be above the fray, and, more importantly, whether Obama can “really blame Fox News for his troubles?” Democratic strategist Hilary Rosen argued that everything Obama says is always “blown out of proportion” in the right-wing media, but Lemon pointed out, “Isn’t the

Hi, everybody. [Snip] Sexual assault is an affront to our basic decency and humanity. And it’s about all of us — the safety of those we love most: our moms, our wives, our daughters and our sons. Because when a child starts to question their self-worth after being abused, and maybe starts withdrawing… or a young woman drops out of school after being attacked. It’s not just these individuals and their families who suffer. Our communities — our whole country — is held back.

According to an email invitation sent out by the Writers Guild East and obtained by Breitbart News, members of the Hollywood elite and the Obama Administration will be gathering in the middle of next month for a panel titled, "The Affordable Care Act: Comedy, Drama & Reality - Portraying ObamaCare in TV & Film." Julie Green Bataille, a director at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), will represent the Obama administration. The left-wing Norman Lear Center is co-sponsoring the event. Two powerful left-wing Hollywood organizations combining with the federal government´s powerful CMS is not something to be taken lightly.

Hi, I’m Senator Roy Blunt. In a few days, President Obama will deliver his sixth State of the Union address. According to recent reports, the President plans to use this speech as a kick-off for his so-called ‘year of action.’ He intends to focus on income inequality leading up to the midterm elections this year. Well, the President’s right about at least one thing. Americans are hurting.

Two hungry fan bases and the wealth of the New York metropolitan area had some guessing that Super Bowl XLVIII would turn out to be the most expensive ticket in Super Bowl history. However, judging from the reaction of the resale ticket market in the past 24 hours, it could turn out to be one of the least expensive. On Friday, nine days before the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks meet at MetLife Stadium, the cheapest ticket to buy for the Super Bowl was $1,779 on NFL Ticket Exchange, the league´s official resale site. That´s $409 cheaper than it was
