With shouts, cheers and fireworks, Seattle Seahawks fans celebrated a dominant victory in the Super Bowl - the city´s first major sports championship in more than 30 years. As the team beat Denver Broncos 43-8, a swarm of fans who had been watching it in the West Coast city swarmed across the city, clambering on buildings and pounding on passing cars. The city quickly descended into chaos as 3,000 revelers swamped the city, climbing on buildings, smashing glass and ripped down street signs. Anticipating rowdy celebrations, the city´s police had earlier tweeted a warning that they would be ´making sure everyone is

One of the biggest blowouts in Super Bowl history was capped by one of the biggest blunders in regional transit history.Overwhelmed by a record number of riders, NJ Transit kept fans waiting after the game for hours for shuttle trains from MetLife Stadium. Jubilation over the Seattle Seahawks’ 43-8 stomping of the Denver Broncos quickly deteriorated into transportation chaos.“Worst train system ever,” fumed Steve Snorsky, 45, of Seattle, whose joy was drained by enormous lines of people waiting for shuttle trains to Secaucus Junction.“I’ve been to every home Seahawks game and I never waited in such a s--t show,” Snorsky

Snow is not usually in short supply in Russia at this time of year but there is one place where it is the most precious of commodities – Sochi. Fly south from Moscow to this Black Sea resort and you spend two and a half hours staring down at nothing but white, a vast and empty landscape plunged into deep freeze. But arrive in Sochi and the thermometer shoots up. No white here, just a rather dispiriting shade of brown. This is not what one expects of a venue for the Winter Olympics, which begin here on Friday in front

Barack Hussein Soebarkah:
In Two Places at the Same Time?
American Thinker, by Jason Kissner    Original Article
Posted By: EnsignOToole- 2/3/2014 6:44:51 AM     Post Reply
The 44th President of the United States is, of course, Barack Hussein Obama II. Barack Hussein Obama II has also been known by names such as Barry Soetoro, Barry Obama, and Barack Hussein Obama (Soebarkah).To be sure, only supposed madmen note that the name "Soebarkah" originated in very tight spatiotemporal proximity to the operations of a cult called "Subud" that was founded by a Muslim named Mohammad Subuh -- a cult wherein personal name changes were the order of the day.

Early Drive for Clinton Unsettles Democrats

The formidable campaign apparatus that has sprung up to support a possible 2016 presidential bid by Hillary Clinton is rattling some Democrats, sparking concerns that it could suppress competition for the party nomination and siphon money from candidates running in the midterm elections this fall. With Democrats fighting to keep control of the Senate in the midterms, the emergence of the pro-Clinton super PAC Priorities USA could eat into donations that the party´s candidates need to win in November, some Democrats warn. A number of Democratic groups are soliciting donors for money, including super PACS devoted to House and Senate

The Gray Lady, America’s Paper of Record, where readers turn to find “All the News That’s Fit to Print,” has gone off the deep end.Last Friday, the paper published a huge story. “Christie Knew About Bridge Lane Closings, Port Authority Official Says,” the headline screamed.Huge. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, during a two-hour press conference weeks ago, had repeatedly insisted that he knew nothing about lane closures on a bridge leading into New York City, after allegations emerged that the lanes were shut down to punish a mayor who failed to endorse the governor’s re-election bid. Now, The Times said,

Shhh. The President Is Sleeping

President Barack Obama is out of gas. Pooped out. Gone fishing. Or rather, golfing. He’s just not that into it anymore. The republic is safe from any further vast left-wing legislative prescriptions for our ills. But Obama’s increasing job fatigue is, paradoxically, cause for serious concern. While he sits back, aides in the White House and in the agencies are busy enacting a stealth agenda of rules and regulations. And on the world stage, Washington’s withdrawal threatens national security. The president on display at Tuesday’s State of the Union is one who has shrunk from the pretension of becoming a president on

  


  

Obama Ties Military´s Hands By
Reading al Quaeda Out of Benghazi

Katherine Zimmerman of AEI, whose work we have highlighted before, wrote an op-ed in Sunday’s Washington Post about the need to formulate a reasonable definition of al Qaeda. The whole column is worth reading, but I was struck most by her explanation of why the military won’t take action against the perpetrators of the Benghazi attack: Here’s the problem: According to recently declassified testimony of Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, before the House Armed Services Committee in October, the U.S. military regards itself as legally barred from going after the perpetrators of the Benghazi attacks

There´s no better way to travel to Davos than on somebody else´s Gulfstream. And that´s how the Democratic operatives involved in Invest Again thought they were going to fly: They were going to go to Switzerland on a private plane owned by the heirs of the Goodrich tire fortune. They were going to meet with Bill and Hillary Clinton, and with Richard Branson, the Virgin Atlantic founder, who had supposedly pledged $12 million in seed money for their new organization.

Woody Allen Has Some Defenders

This weekend, much internet bandwidth was devoted to Dylan Farrow—the adopted daughter of Woody Allen and Mia Farrow. Farrow alleged in a post published on Nicholas Kristof´s Times blog yesterday that she was sexual abused by Allen when she was seven. The post reignited a story that had lay mostly dormant for decades, but never exactly left the public consciousness. Farrow´s horrible, shocking, and poignant words immediately mobilized support from a bevy of writers and public intellectuals who chastised both Hollywood and the world for continuing to venerate Allen, one of America´s most honored directors. It would take a lifetime to

House Speaker John Boehner KO’d Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi in 2013 fundraising by over 50 percent, according to just released figures. Boehner outraised the former Democratic speaker by a whopping $19 million, $54 million to Pelosi’s $35 million. When Pelosi’s team last month revealed her success collecting checks, they heralded it as a huge win, a figure that surpassed her past fundraising efforts in the last three non-election years. By comparison, Boehner’s win in 2013 was offered to reporters with just simple numbers and a comment from aide Cory Fritz who said, “Liberal super PACs and labor unions outraised and outspent conservatives by

Seattle residents celebrate Seahawks´ Super

SEATTLE — With shouts, cheers and fireworks, Seattle residents celebrated a dominant victory in the Super Bowl — the city’s first major sports championship in more than 30 years. Thousands of people took to the streets and Seattle police planned an increased presence throughout the city Sunday night. They sent a tweet on the department’s widely followed Twitter account saying, “Officers will be out and about citywide making sure everyone is celebrating safely.” The Seahawks beat the Denver Broncos 43-8. The last time a major Seattle sports franchise won a championship was in 1979 when the Supersonics took the NBA title. The

A Serious GOP Alternative to Obamacare

The most frequently repeated Democrat talking point concerning Republican opposition to Obamacare is the claim that the GOP has offered no alternative. This is nonsense, of course, but it has proved an effective device for suppressing a serious debate about the President’s “signature legislative achievement.” Predictably, Obama offered yet another variation on the theme during his recent State of the Union message: “I don’t expect to convince my Republican friends on the merits of this law.… So again, if you have specific plans to cut costs, cover more people, and increase choice — tell America what you’d do differently.” Ironically, as

The trouble with liberals is not just that they eventually run out of other people’s money, as Margaret Thatcher observed. It’s that they find new ways every day to project their own dysfunctional worldview on the rest of us. It’s like living next door to a nuclear-waste dump run by the Bumpusses. You’d like to ignore it, but shards of spent fuel keep falling into your yard and setting your dog on fire. This is how non-progressive Americans increasingly view our ever-coarsening, “progressive” popular culture and the ruling elites who promote it. They’re aghast at not only the moral meltdown, but the

On March 21, 2012, NBC led the nightly news with reporting about the Trayvon Martin case. CBS led with a report that the NFL was imposing unprecedented sanctions on a team for a scheme that involved paying athletes to injure opponents. It was a slow news day, and the Big Three newscasts had to choose unconventional leads. But ABC’s lead on World News was, even in that context, unlikely. It was news the network had played an integral role in creating: The program’s aggressive coverage of an obscure food product was yielding results, and Diane Sawyer announced that some of America’s

Five Ways Reagan Nostalgia
Misleads Conservatives
American Conservative, by W. James Antle, III    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 2/3/2014 4:55:13 AM     Post Reply
This week marks Ronald Reagan’s 103rd birthday. Non-conservatives often mock the right’s nostalgia for the fortieth president, but the enthusiasm is as well placed as the FDR portraits that hung above many a New Deal Democrat’s mantle. Reagan was one of just two political figures associated with the modern conservative movement to win the Republican presidential nomination, and he’s the only one to make it to the White House. Ever since his 49-state landslide reelection in 1984—he came within one vote per Minnesota precinct of making it a 50-state sweep—conservatives have held the reins in the GOP but have been unable

For five years, the Obama administration has touted its success in the war against al Qaeda. In formal addresses, daily press briefings, and campaign speeches top administration officials have celebrated the “decimation” of al Qaeda and predicted its imminent extinction. John Brennan, the president’s top adviser on these matters, even took the bold step of putting a timeframe on the end of al Qaeda. “If the decade before 9/11 was the time of al Qaeda’s rise and the decade after 9/11 was the time of its decline, then I believe this decade will be the one that sees its demise,”

Sometimes even the federal government is capable of grasping the obvious. So it was late Friday afternoon, when the State Department dumped its report on the environmental impact of the proposed Keystone Pipeline, which is designed to transport oil extracted from Canada’s tar sands through America down to the Gulf Coast. Essentially, the report concluded that whether or not we go ahead with the pipeline, Canada is going to extract this oil. “The dominant drivers of oil-sands development,” says the report, “are more global than any single infrastructure project.” And because it will be developed with or without the pipeline, nothing the United

Bill O´Reilly´s ridiculous Super Bowl

Never have I ever watched a less informative, self-parodic nationally televised interview with the President of the United States. So bad, in fact, that it makes me question whether Bill O´Reilly, famously Fox News´s most erratically independent primetime voice, a very smart man and incredibly talented broadcaster, has lost his ability to distinguish between what makes a question tough in the real world and what gets that distinction in Fox News´s made-up world of indignant self-pity. O´Reilly doesn´t get along with Sean Hannity, but it seems like Hannity somehow took over his brain. Question one was about the Obamacare website. Mr.

State OCare “Glitches” May Doom Dems

The word “glitch” hasn’t been heard lately from Democrats. After months of pretending the problems with ObamaCare could be dismissed as mere glitches on an otherwise perfectly functional website, the party has lately adopted a stance in which the president’s signature health-care legislation is considered to have transcended its rough rollout. The president’s State of the Union address not only glossed over the disastrous start to the law’s implementation but also, in another now familiar Democratic meme, treated the debate about the issue as finished. But unfortunately for his party, the latest batch of ObamaCare problems may serve not only

White Lodging -- a company that maintains Hilton, Marriott, Sheraton and Westin hotel franchises -- has apparently suffered a data breach that exposed guests´ credit and debit card information in 2013, independent security researcher Brian Krebs said. Banking industry sources noticed fraud among hundreds of cards that had been previously used at Marriott hotels, wrote Krebs, who first reported that Target had suffered a massive data breach around Black Friday last year. "But those same sources said they were puzzled by the pattern of fraud, because it was seen only at specific Marriott hotels, including locations in Austin, Chicago, Denver,

A convicted quadruple-murderer is on the loose this morning after escaping from custody in Michigan and abducting a woman, corrections officials confirmed to ABC News. Officials say Michael David Elliot escaped from the Ionia Correctional Facility Sunday before driving to Indiana. Elliot abducted a woman with a knife or box cutter before driving with her to Elkhart, In. - about 130 miles south - where they stopped for gas, Michigan Department of Corrections spokesman Russ Marlan said. While the woman was able to escape, Elliot remains at large. There’s no word on how he was able to escape from custody. Michigan State Police Lt.

Sochi - The city of Sochi has quietly hired a private company to kill as many of its stray dogs as possible ahead of the upcoming Winter Olympics, ABC News has learned. The city´s move came after it publicly backed off plans to do so last year amid outrage from animal rights groups. The owner of the company, Alexei Sorokin, told ABC News (snip) " Imagine, if during an Olympic games, a ski jumper landed at 130 kilometres an hour [over 80 mph] and a dog runs into him when he lands.

President Barack Obama sent a weary email to supporters Saturday that referred to Washington, D.C. as a “state.” (snip) The email, which basically amounted to a 115-word tired sigh, was regionally targeted. The version sent to people in the District of Columbia (which links to a DNC fundraising page showing a map of the nation’s capital) said that “we’re counting on Democrats from every corner of the state to pitch in – and we still need 153 people from Washington. Will you be one of them?” The District of Columbia is not one of the 50 U.S. states.

President Barack Obama again denied any wrongdoing by the IRS over their targeting of conservative tea party groups, telling Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly there was “not even a smidgen of corruption” in the way the tax enforcer processed tea partiers’ 501(c)4 paperwork. (Snip) “So you’re saying there was no corruption there at all?” O’Reilly asked. “Absolutely not,” the president replied. “There were some bone-headed decisions out of a local office.” “But no mass corruption?” O’Reilly persisted. “Not even mass corruption,” a visibly-annoyed Obama replied. “Not even a smidgen of corruption.” It’s a far cry from Obama’s May 2013 statement called the targeting “outrageous.”

In an apparent reversal of his past campaign statements, President Barack Obama told Fox News´s Bill O´Reilly in a Sunday interview that he does not believe in fundamentally transforming America. O´Reilly read Obama a question from a viewer who asked, "Mr. President, why do you feel it is necessary to fundamentally transform the nation that has afforded you so much opportunity and success?" "I don´t think we need to fundamentally transform the nation," said Obama. "But those are your words," explained O´Reilly.
