The boy and girl, both 5, told the teacher they were ‘having sex.’ The school board voted to remove her from her job. A New Jersey teacher may lose her job after two of her kindergarten students were found "having sex" while naked in the classroom´s bathroom. The rural South Jersey school district of Mullica Township seeks to remove kindergarten teacher Kelly Mascio after two 5-year-old students — a boy and girl — were found naked in the bathroom at her classroom on Sept. 30, reports the Press of Atlantic City. The students told the teacher they were "having sex,"

President Obama, like Secretary of State John Kerry, worships at the Church of Global Warming but chooses a different form of grandstanding to profess his faith. In a speech at a Maryland supermarket warehouse, Obama said he was using his authority to direct the Transportation Department and the Environmental Protection Agency to tighten fuel economy standards for trucks as a measure to reduce emissions of carbon dioxide, the chief alleged earth-warming gas. He clearly intended to be seen as going around a stalemated Congress. Big whoop. This is a little like the rooster claiming credit for the sunrise. Congress long ago

"Beware the Ides of March,” the soothsayer warned in Shakespeare’s play “Julius Caesar.” A Roman religious holiday, the Ides (15th) of March was the day on which Roman consuls assumed office — and the day Caesar was assassinated. For the United States, and the world economy, the Ides will be around March 4 this year, predicted Grady Means in October 2012. Mr. Means isn’t a doomsayer who’s predicted 11 of the last two recessions. He isn’t trying to sell gold, silver or freeze-dried food. He was managing partner of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP, an assistant to Vice President Nelson Rockefeller and wrote

NBC’s David Gregory Plays Nice
With Susan Rice On Benghazi
Newsbusters, by Jeffrey Meyer    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 2/23/2014 2:41:49 PM     Post Reply
For the first time since her infamous 2012 interview, National Security Advisor Susan Rice appeared on Meet the Press on Sunday February 23 to discuss a variety of foreign policy issues, most noticeably Benghazi. Throughout the interview, which focused primarily on the recent violent protests in Ukraine, host David Gregory provided Rice with a variety of softball questions on Benghazi, and allowed her to push White House talking points without any significant pushback. During the exchange on Benghazi, the word terrorism was not mentioned once, and Gregory seemed more concerned with allowing Rice to fix her disastrous appearance in 2012 than to

Following Meet the Press host David Gregory’s softball interview with former Ambassador Susan Rice, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews rushed to defend Ms. Rice from criticism surrounding the terrorist attack in Benghazi. Appearing as a panelist on the Sunday show, Matthews eagerly asked Gregory if he could defend Ambassador Rice before pushing the White House talking point that “it was a copycat situation Benghazi, came out of what happened in Cairo – which itself probably came out of that crazy movie out of Los Angeles.” [See video below.] As Matthews doubled down on his over-the-top defense of Ms. Rice, the MSNBC host

(Video) President Bush is front and center in the news this week, a position he hasn’t frequently occupied since leaving office five years ago, stepping back into the spotlight to shine a spotlight of his own on post-9/11 veterans and his fight to take the “Disorder” out of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. “We’re getting rid of the D,” he said. “PTS is an injury; it’s not a disorder. The problem is when you call it a disorder, [veterans] don’t think they can be treated. “An employer says, ‘I don’t want to hire somebody with a disorder.’ And so our mission tomorrow

National Security Adviser Susan Rice said Sunday she has no regrets over what she told the American public about the 2012 Benghazi terror attacks in the immediate aftermath of the deadly strikes. Rice did a round of Sunday TV interviews a few days after the attacks, in which some of the information she gave was later proven incorrect. “What I said to you that morning, and what I did every day since, was to share the best information that we had at the time,” Rice told NBC´s “Meet the Press” moderator David Gregory on Sunday. “The information I provided …

  


  

McCain: ‘Almost Speechless’ at
Susan Rice’s Benghazi Claim

On Face the Nation Sunday morning, Senator John McCain (R-AZ) literally laughed off National Security Advisor Susan Rice’s statement earlier on Meet the Press that she did not intentionally mislead in her September 2012 appearance on the Sunday shows in which she claimed that the Benghazi attack had been in part a “spontaneous response” to an anti-Islam video. “I’m almost speechless,” McCain told host Bob Schieffer. “It’s patently obvious, first of all, that Susan Rice had no reason to be on the program, she had no involvement in it. Second of all, she read talking points, that we are now

Russia had so much to prove at the Winter Games. That spending however-many-billion dollars to build an Olympics-industrial complex from scratch on the edge of the Black Sea was worth it. That despite a thicket of security worries, logistical obstacles, weather annoyances and the darkening specter of revolution in nearby Ukraine, the country could put on a Games that ran seamlessly, at times even exuberantly. Its closing ceremony on Sunday night was advertised as a celebration of Russian culture and heritage – a grand party to show off the work of distinguished Russian musicians, dancers, artists and authors through the

Democrat Mary Landrieu´s quest for a fourth Senate term will turn on whether she can attract just enough support from independents and Republicans to win in this increasingly conservative state. The daughter and sister of New Orleans mayors, that´s been Landrieu´s re-election strategy since 2002, when her donors included a Baton Rouge physician named Bill Cassidy_now her Republican challenger in this year´s midterm elections. Replicating that winning formula could depend on what matters more to voters: Landrieu's growing ability to help Louisiana's oil and gas industry through her recent promotion to chairwoman of the Senate Energy and National Resources Committee or her unapologetic vote for

Well, perhaps not really completely different, but this seems to be the time of year when there is a dearth of beauty pageants to cover, which is why the Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition comes out around now. (Snip) This year’s SI swimsuit cover girl is . . . Barbie! Hooray! I say “Hooray!” because this turned out to be perfect bait for the angry, humorless cultural Left, which has always hated Barbie. (Who needs Pavlov when you’ve got Leftists?) What really galls the Left is that both SI and Barbie’s maker, Mattel, are “unapologetic” about their partnership, as the New

An organization, Patriots for America, is calling for millions of Americans to descend on Washington, D.C on May 16 for Operation American Spring whose purpose is to demand that President Obama and others in his administration be removed from office. Among the rules of engagement set forth on their Internet site include (1) no weapons. No ammunition. “The Communist forces that control Washington, D.C. do not recognize the 2nd Amendment and have banned all weapons and ammunition from the district.

Chicago will be the site of a digital manufacturing institute backed by $70 million in federal money and another $250 million in private and other government funding, giving the city, once a factory town, a better chance to re-establish its credentials as a modern maker of things. The decision, to be announced officially Tuesday by President Barack Obama, was hotly anticipated by city and state officials who recognized the opportunity to jump-start high-tech manufacturing as a core component of Chicago’s economic vision.

Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel may face a formidable challenger when he runs for re-election in 2015: Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle. Though Preckwinkle says she will seek a second term on the county board in November, there is a precedent for a quick switch to the mayoral election in February: then-U.S. Rep. Harold Washington, Chicago´s first black mayor, did in in the historic 1983 election, against all political odds. Preckwinkle would be the city´s first black female mayor. She won the hearts of many of the city´s reformers by defeating incumbent county board president Todd Stroger, widely viewed as

Abortion proponents push for easy access to abortion, deemphasizing its after-affects to the point they absolutely refuse to acknowledge post-abortion depression, which further incapacitates those actually living through it. This is such a tragedy. Charlotte Dawson, RIP, was born in New Zealand but achieved fame in Australia as a model and a judge on Australia’s Next Top Model. From The Telegraph, February 23: In the end it seemed like the final, inevitable episode of a tragic soap opera: Charlotte Dawson -- the model, TV star and social crusader who spent many of her adult years battling depression -- ended her

The Mexican government confirmed Saturday that Mexican drug lord Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán was detained in Sinaloa, his home state on Mexico’s Pacific coast. “I acknowledge the work of the Mexican security institutions in achieving the arrest of Joaquín Guzmán Loera in Mazatlán,” Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto wrote in his Twitter account. Up until Saturday, no action by the Mexican or U.S. governments against Guzmán, including targeting his multimillion dollar money laundering operation to squeeze his finances, had been successful. His success as the U.S.’s #1 supplier of illegal drugs –as the head of the

Mexico City — Just before 7 a.m. on Saturday, dozens of soldiers and police officers descended on a condominium tower in Mazatlán, Mexico, a beach resort known as much as a hangout for drug traffickers as for its seafood and surf. The forces were following yet another tip about the whereabouts of one of the world’s most wanted drug kingpins, Joaquín Guzmán Loera — known as El Chapo, which means “Shorty” — who had eluded such raids for 13 years since escaping from prison, by many accounts in a laundry cart. With an army of guards and lethally enforced loyalty, he reigned over a worldwide, multibillion-dollar drug empire

Footsteps of Ukrainian impeachment

The forced Parliamentary impeachment of Ukrainian President Victor Yanukovych just cancelled out President Barack Obama’s puny pen and telephone. Russian President Vladimir Putin was Yankovych’s pen and telephone, but with the entire world watching, the prime minister, who only three months ago made a deal in favor of the Russians over the European Union, has hightailed it for safer ground by abandoning the battle field. “Parliament on Feb. 22 voted overwhelmingly to impeach embattled Ukrainian President Victor Yanukovych. Lawmakers applauded as the votes came in—328 in all—to oust the president. Following the vote, parliamentarian(s) stood and sang the national anthem.”

Novi Petrivtsi, Ukraine — The opulent residence of President Viktor Yanukovych has always been a closely guarded secret — and a symbol of the alleged corruption at Ukraine’s highest levels. On Saturday, after he fled the capital and its gates were thrown open, thousands streamed into the compound to get a first-hand look. Inside the walled compound known as Mezhyhirya, posh mansions stood amid manicured lawns. There were parks dotted with statues, ponds with fountains and wild ducks, a tennis court, a golf course and a colonnaded pavilion. As throngs of ordinary Ukrainians got their first look at Yanukovych’s luxurious estate, many

Of all the myriad myths spread at light speed by the enemies of Christianity and astonishingly believed without much critical thought by vast numbers of people, one of the most surreal must be the idea that Nazism was Christian. (snip)The danger of a return to values and ideas espoused by the Nazis, that we hear so much about, is real, but doesn´t come so much from the direction of the usual suspects, "Islamophobic", neo-Nazi groups, as from a far more mainstream, Leftist direction. The threat has two sources. One is the rise of Islam in the West -- aided and abetted

The NFL´s ban on allowing off-duty police officers to carry guns into stadiums has at least two exceptions--the two NFL stadiums in Texas. According to CBS DFW, "Texas state law overrides the NFL policy. As long as officers attending the game check in at a specific gate and inform Security where they are sitting, they can have their gun." This exception to the NFL´s gun ban will apply to the Dallas Cowboys´ AT&T Stadium in Arlington and the Houston Texans´ Reliant Stadium. The Dallas Police Association´s Ron Pinkston agrees with the Texas law: "Our officers are 24/7, on or off

BEAUMONT, Texas—On the night before early voting began in Texas, a few hundred conservatives gather in a Dallas Hilton ballroom to pray for victory. They start arriving at 5:30 p.m., some of them buying hotel-priced beverages from a pop-up bar, some of them moving immediately to the tables where they can sign up to help Katrina Pierson get elected to Congress. I pick up a door-hanger, one of thousands that will be deployed over the next week. It’s like a Bayeux Tapestry of Tea Party history.

As Black History Month draws to a close, we must not forget a great American that should be honored and studied the whole year through. Booker T. Washington, author of the autobiography Up from Slavery, presents solutions as applicable today as they were in his pivotal time in history. In his 1895 address to the Atlanta Exposition (a gathering of mostly-white leaders in the fields of commerce and industry), Mr. Washington, just 30 years after the close of the Civil War, said:

The thing I like about most sports are the rules and how the winner is determined are pretty unambiguous. Score more points, cross the finish line first, jump higher, whatever, and you win. Should there be any foul play or skirting of the rules, there’s an official or referee there to cry foul. It’s simple and, to borrow a word from President Obama, fair. Politics, on the other hand, is quite different. Truth used to be the most potent weapon in the game of politics. It was the best tool with which to garner the most votes, and whoever got the
