President Obama’s cousin wants

Washington Post, by Sean Sullivan    Original Article

"It´s nothing personal," said Milton Wolf, President Obama´s second cousin, once removed. But Obama´s actions, he added, "are destroying America." And you thought your family had problems. Wolf is a tea party-aligned conservative running for the U.S. Senate in Kansas, where Obama´s mother was born and where Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.) is trying to win a fourth term. In an interview Monday with Post Politics, he recalled meeting the president for the first time in 2010 at an event in Kansas City. "I think I´m probably one of the only people on this planet who´ve actually stood toe to toe

Law: The IRS is stonewalling two congressional committees over new evidence it illegally targeted dissidents, this time citing employee confidentiality. If this means zero accountability for abuse of power, it´s time for new laws. Christine O´Donnell, a Tea Party candidate from a few years ago, may not be everyone´s cup, but she was spot-on when she told the Washington Times on Sunday: "Unless this is all exposed, unless every level of inappropriateness and corruption is exposed, I certainly won´t be the last person to be politically intimidated like this." Back in 2010, as she campaigned for a Senate seat in Delaware, O´Donnell´s

We live in a in a pluralistic country. New York State, with a population of about 19.6 million people, encompasses people from across the political, economic, social, and religious spectrums. Governor Cuomo acted like an elitist and nativist when he said that “extreme conservatives who are right-to-life, pro-assault-weapon, anti-gay… have no place in the state of New York, because that’s not who New Yorkers are.” He may be Governor, but does that give him the right to say who New Yorkers are? No matter where one stands on those issues, the Governor’s declaration was extreme. When Mayor de Blasio provided

More Economic Freedom Is Key
To U.S. Economic Success
Investor´s Business Daily, by James A. Dorn    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 1/27/2014 7:09:26 PM     Post Reply
The key question facing policymakers in 2014 will be how to energize the economy and lower the rate of unemployment while avoiding another financial crisis caused by asset price inflation and a misallocation of credit. The Fed seems concerned with deflation, but the real risk is that the Fed´s bloated balance sheet, and the extraordinary run-up in the monetary base during the last five years, will begin to show up in inflationary increases in the monetary aggregates. In an election year, policymakers will be timid in raising interest rates, so the asset bubbles that are becoming more and more obvious could grow

Lack Of Opportunity, Not Economic
Inequality, Is U.S.´ Real Problem

The big story that´s simultaneously being spotlighted from the Vatican to the White House, from Oxfam to newly elected Mayor Bill de Blasio in New York City, is economic inequality and the purportedly overly skewed and unjust distribution of wealth. "The human rights group Oxfam reported that the wealth of the world´s 85 richest people is equal to that of the poorer half of the world´s population," reported Voice of America on Jan. 20. In other words, the wealth of a little group of people who can easily fit into two Mercedes party buses is equal to the combined wealth of the

Raw Power: The White House said over the weekend that President Obama plans to bypass Congress because it won´t do what he wants it to. Yet again, this president goes outside the law and acts as if he were a monarch. The Associated Press is reporting that Obama´s "top advisers warned Sunday in previewing Tuesday´s State of the Union speech" that the president "will work with Congress where he can and circumvent lawmakers where he must." White House press secretary Jay Carney is on record notifying the country that "the president sees this as a year of action to work with Congress

LOS ANGELES – Justin Bieber has been the focus of two investigations in the past two weeks. A search warrant was issued at his home in California in relation to the alleged vandalism of his neighbor’s property, and the singer was arrested on suspicion of DUI and drag racing in Florida.(Snip)Here’s the thing: Bieber is not a U.S. citizen – he’s from Canada.

ObamaCare Dumped $1.2 Bil
Into Failing State Exchanges
Investor´s Business Daily, by John Merline    Original Article

In late October 2013, the Obama administration sent $41.9 million to Minnesota for its state-built health exchange. It was the sixth ObamaCare grant awarded the state, and all told taxpayers ponied up $155 million to help build MNSure. But just 13 weeks after that last grant arrived, an independent consultant issued a damning report, saying Minnesota should consider scrapping MNSure entirely and starting over from scratch, citing systemic technical and management problems. A "large gap exists between required functionality and what has been delivered," the report stated . The state is now deciding what to do next. Minnesota isn´t alone in wasting federal

A religious reliquary containing blood from the late Pope John Paul II has been stolen from a remote mountain church in Italy, with speculation that a Satanic group could be behind the theft. A team of around 50 Carabinieri police officers with sniffer dogs were on Monday searching for any trace of the reliquary, which was stolen from the Church of St Peter of Ienca in the Abruzzo mountains at the weekend. The ornate gold object contains a fragment of material, stained with blood, which was purportedly taken from the clothing worn by John Paul II after he was shot

President Obama is expected to enlist the aid of major U.S. corporations in fighting long-term joblessness in an announcement in his State of the Union address Tuesday evening. Xerox, Lockheed Martin and Procter & Gamble confirmed that they are among large companies participating in a White House pledge to not discriminate against the long-term unemployed when hiring. The wall street journal reported the pledge Monday morning. It commits corporations to boosting the long-term unemployed by ensuring that they are not unfairly treated in companies´ advertising or hiring decisions and improving their efforts to hire those out of work for long

CHILPANCINGO, Mexico – Hundreds of armed men belonging to community self-defense groups occupied eight small towns near Chilpancingo, capital of the southern Mexican state of Guerrero, and detained a dozen suspected extortionists, a spokesperson for the vigilantes said. The action was taken due to the “federal government’s poor response” in ensuring the security of the state’s inhabitants, Gonzalo Torres, a coordinator of the Citizen Safety and Justice System, or SSyJC, organization, said Friday. The vigilantes said they seized control of the towns, all part of the municipality of Chilpancingo, because their residents are the victims of criminal gangs that extort and kidnap

Two survivors of the Boston Marathon bombing and an openly gay NBA player are among the guests who will sit with first lady Michelle Obama Tuesday when President Barack Obama delivers the annual State of the Union address. The first lady´s guests are often picked because they symbolize an issue or policy the president is promoting. The White House announced six guests on Monday, with other names to be released ahead of Obama´s address. The guests announced so far are:- Carlos Arredondo and Jeff Bauman, Boston: A photograph of Arredondo, 53, and Bauman, 27, has become one of the iconic

Freezing rain and then snow is expected to fall Tuesday. Roads will ice over. Some power lines will drop. Arctic cold will overtake rain on Tuesday morning, turn it to freezing rain in the early afternoon and snow at night. Summerville and other inland areas might see the change in the late morning, said Jonathan Lamb, National Weather Service, Charleston. As much as three-quarters of an inch of ice could drop. Inland could see maybe an inch of snow Tuesday night. "It´s pretty much going to be an all-day thing," said meteorologist Brett Cimbora with the Charleston office.

The GOP’s Gift to Cornwallis

You all know the history of Yorktown, right? George Washington’s continental army had Lord Cornwallis’s British troops hemmed in on a peninsula with no egress available by land. A French fleet controlled the waters right offshore, so Cornwallis seemed unable to be rescued by sea. And then Washington — getting pressure from war financier Robert Morris, who thought the French were scoundrels – started working with Cornwallis to shoot cannon at the French to drive them away from the Chesapeake . . . Well, if that’s not how it really happened, it certainly seems to be the model of political warfare

Deep within the Earth, a fierce molten core is generating a magnetic field capable of defending our planet against devastating solar winds. The protective field extends thousands of miles into space and its magnetism affects everything from global communication to animal migration and weather patterns. But this magnetic field, so important to life on Earth, has weakened by 15 per cent over the last 200 years. And this, scientists claim, could be a sign that the Earth’s poles are about to flip. Experts believe we´re currently overdue a flip, but they´re unsure when this could occur. If a switch happens, we would be exposed

An Obamacare Replacement in the Senate

The past few months have seen some very promising new conservative reform initiatives emerging from Capitol Hill — ideas that build on the work of conservative wonks in the think-tank world and the academy and translate them into practical proposals. Senator Mike Lee has offered a very appealing tax-reform proposal and important ideas for transforming our approach to transportation and higher-education policy. Senator Marco Rubio and Representative Paul Ryan have outlined some promising improvements to the safety net. And today, senators Tom Coburn, Orrin Hatch, and Richard Burr have proposed a conservative health-care reform that has enormous promise. Herewith, some quick

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama will work with Congress where he can and circumvent lawmakers where he must, his top advisers warned Sunday in previewing Tuesday´s State of the Union speech. Obama faces a politically divided Congress on Tuesday and will use his annual address to demand expanded economic opportunity. Absent legislative action, the White House is telling lawmakers that the president is ready to take unilateral action to close the gap between rich and poor Americans. "I think the way we have to think about this year is we have a divided government," said Dan Pfeiffer, a longtime Obama adviser.

A ban on autos? Major cities

Germany, home of the high-speed autobahn, is perhaps one of the few countries that has had as intense a love affair with the automobile as the U.S. But in an effort to go green, the country´s second-largest city is studying ways to eliminate cars by 2034. The northern city of Hamburg has laid out an initial concept, named the Green Network Plan, that would expand public transportation and add more routes for pedestrians and bicyclists. The most controversial aspect of the plan calls for a steady phase-out of automobiles in the center of the city over the next two decades. And Hamburg

RUSH: Ladies and gentlemen, for three days last week I told you the amazing story of Scott Walker, governor Wisconsin and the rebirth and revitalization of his state, a blue state, with conservatism. Conservative economic policy has revitalized that state. The upshot of it is that there´s a near $1 billion budget surplus that he is returning to the taxpayers in the form of income property tax cuts. Interestingly, by the way, the Wisconsin legislature is opposing him on this. They want to spend the money on... what do you think? Education. Oh, yes. We´re not spending enough on education, the

Government watchdog groups and reporters say political appointees have been given increased sway over Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests in the Obama administration, slowing down the release of public records and introducing political pressure to the process. Numerous federal agencies have adopted policies to review “significant” or “sensitive” FOIA requests. The White House also frequently reviews FOIA requests it claims contain executive branch materials. The Washington Free Beacon has had one FOIA request under White House review for the past three months. The Free Beacon requested emails from Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius’ previously secret email address concerning
