The Republican who has
followed Ted Kennedy´s path
Washington Examiner, by David M. Drucker    Original Article
Posted By: tisHimself- 7/3/2014 5:41:34 AM     Post Reply
It´s a story that´s been told before. After a failed bid for the White House, the long-serving senator returned to Capitol Hill. As the years wore on, he sparred with the president, used his name recognition to push his pet causes and became a power broker able to step in when party leadership failed. In many ways, Sen. John McCain has followed the path laid out by Sen. Ted Kennedy after his unsuccessful attempt to wrest the Democratic nomination from Jimmy Carter in 1980. But there are differences between the Arizona Republican and the Massachusetts Democrat, and not just those of party

Hillary Clinton on coverage
of her book tour: A lot of it is
´inaccurate´ or ´unimportant to me´
Washington Examiner, by T Becket Adams    Original Article
Posted By: tisHimself- 7/3/2014 5:34:15 AM     Post Reply
Although Hillary Clinton is undoubtedly happy that a sympathetic and excited press agreed to cover her new memoir, Hard Choices, she´s apparently unimpressed with much of the reporting on her book tour. And what a book tour it has been. From one gaffe regarding her family´s impressive wealth to the next, it appears that Clinton can´t catch a break. And remember: Each Clinton misstep regarding her personal wealth has occurred during ridiculously easy softball interviews with a sympathetic press. Still, rather than pull the plug on her less-than-stellar book tour, and take a moment to regroup and maybe try again, Clinton has decided

Getting to 2017

The question I am asked more than any other these days is: How on earth are we going to make it to 2017? It’s black humor, really, ironic hyperbole; no one really believes the United States will suffer an existential catastrophe between now and the day Barack Obama leaves office. Certainly we’ve seen nothing to compare with the cascading horrors of 1979, for example—a year that began with gas rationing, proceeded to a nuclear-plant meltdown, saw 52 American diplomats taken hostage in Iran, and ended with the Soviets invading Afghanistan. The people I’ve talked to lived through 1979; they know this.

Hillary Clinton’s woes continue
Washington Post, by Jennifer Rubin    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 7/3/2014 5:15:13 AM     Post Reply
Recent events have not been kind to Hillary Clinton, but she is far from an innocent victim in what surely is one of the worst revival tours in memory. Hillary Clinton, still unwilling to acknowledge her and her boss’s failure to accurately assess the threats from al-Qaeda and the spread of jihaists into Libya, stubbornly insists we really don’t know why the jihadists attacked and killed our people. Oh, puhleez. While not a supporter of civilian trials for enemy combatants, I must admit there is something satisfying about the prosecution’s version of events laid out for all to see. The New

Obama´s Border Crisis

It’s hard to imagine a more apt summation of the lunatic state of the nation’s immigration debate than this week’s split screen. In Washington, most respectable opinion lined up, yet again, to condemn Republicans for not passing an amnesty under the guise of defunct-for-now “comprehensive immigration reform.” Meanwhile, the crisis on the Southern border continued. A massive influx of people — largely driven by Central Americans, many of them children — drawn here in the expectation of lax immigration enforcement is overwhelming border officials and facilities. A Wall Street Journal story about the White House reaction to the crisis was headlined, “Obama Plans

As the Fourth of July nears, summer officially swings into full gear, and Main Streets across the country will be home to legions of parades featuring community members coming together to celebrate our independence. In the nation´s capital, however, our president appears to be leading a one-man parade of his own to force an ill-conceived emissions-reduction plan onto the American people in hopes other nations will follow. Unfortunately, as the president tosses his own ticker tape, world leaders are refusing to follow, as they recognize the consequences associated with the president’s plan are simply too steep to risk. Even the leaders of our

Netanyahu’s Steady Hand

Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu gave an important speech worthy of discussion when he addressed the Institute for National Security Studies in Tel Aviv on June 29. The following excerpts are from the official translation on the prime minister’s office website: An historic change is taking place in our region, with major repercussions for Israel’s security and the security of the entire world. The Sykes-Picot agreement which, almost a century ago, defined the borders in our region, has come to an end. . . . We are now looking at many years of conflict and instability. I agree that Sykes-Picot, a secret

Mitt Romney attacks President

STRATHAM, N.H. — Mitt Romney — suddenly the subject of wild speculation about a third presidential run — leveled a broad-based attack at President Obama in this first-in-the-nation primary state, while a new national poll shows more Americans wish the former Massachusetts governor, not Obama, were president now. “We’re really at a crossroads,” Romney said. “We’ve a president ... laying out a course for America that has resulted in people having a hard time finding a job. People are having a hard time making ends meet, because wages aren’t going up even as their costs are going through the roof. People

The CPSC Takes on Sparklers

This Fourth of July the federal government is issuing dire warnings to protect children from the menace of sparklers. The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has released intense stick figure videos and posters warning that children should never be allowed to hold a sparkler, due to fire hazards. “Yes, we do not recommend children use sparklers, as they burn at about 2,000 degrees, which is hotter than a blow torch,” Nychelle Fleming, a spokesperson for the CPSC told the Washington Free Beacon. A 2012 video entitled “Un-Sparktacular Celebration” features a stick figure family who let their children use sparklers unsupervised.

Hillary´s Religious Hobby

A few years back I wrote book on the faith of Hillary Clinton. To this day it jolts liberals and conservatives alike that I, a principled Reagan conservative, would have written God and Hillary Clinton: A Spiritual Life, especially on the heels of books I did on the faiths of Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush. Conservatives were incredulous, annoyed that I took Hillary’s faith so seriously.(Snip)Well, I’m here today to underscore that those onetime claims are completely gone. Last year, Hillary Clinton embraced gay marriage, moving to the left of even her socially liberal denomination, the United Methodist Church.

Shortly before Ronald Reagan was sworn in as president, I wrote a column suggesting we call off the inauguration — because the president-elect’s brother, Neil, had just disclosed that their Irish grandfather, Michael, had snuck into America. “He was probably one of the early wetbacks, except that he came in from Canada instead of Mexico,” Neil told The Los Angeles Times. What kind of signal, I asked, would we be sending if we swore in Reagan as president? We’d be saying that no matter how you got in to America, if you could find a wife and raise a family, you could become

Technology problems at IRS goes far
beyond loss of Lois Lerner’s email

Lois G. Lerner’s hard drive isn’t the only technological problem at the Internal Revenue Service. The tax agency’s inspector general has been warning for years of lost computer equipment, lax security that could place private taxpayers’ information at risk, and mishandled information technology contracts that wasted tens of millions of dollars. The reports are being disclosed as the IRS says its technology budget is strapped for cash, one reason the agency didn’t have a backup system to store all of Ms. Lerner’s emails that are the subject of a congressional investigation. “We are provided significant amounts of money but significantly less than we

I. Warning: The Latrines Are Kinda Full It´s April in the Nevada desert, not even 11 A.M., and the heat is already physical, like something you could lean on. To those not yet accustomed to the republic, like myself, there´s a feeling of unreality to it. Even the view from up here, looking north: blue-green river shading to red-orange mesa shading to gray-red mountain, like a Looney Tunes cartoon. From under the command tent at what some were calling Camp Tripwire and others Camp Liberty, maybe a mile down the road from the Bundy ranch—family home of Cliven Bundy, the rancher whose

Why Seinfeld is still master of its domain
The Week, by Daniel Bettridge    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 7/3/2014 4:10:39 AM     Post Reply
Seinfeld premiered 25 years ago this week — but even the most dedicated viewers of its era probably missed its inaugural episode. Dumped in a graveyard slot as a mid-summer replacement, the series (which was then titled The Seinfeld Chronicles) was given just four episodes to justify its existence when it hit the airwaves in 1989. From those inauspicious origins came Seinfeld, the sitcom juggernaut that served as appointment viewing for more than 76 million Americans at its peak. Even in syndication, Seinfeld remains master of its domain; though it hasn´t produced a new episode since 1998, the series has earned

You know the saying: Go big or go home. And we all know they’re not going home. How does “unilateral legalization for all illegals” grab you? [I]n the wake of Obama’s Monday Rose Garden speech vowing unilateral action, some reformers want the president to go far beyond a limited expansion of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, to essentially legalize the millions of undocumented immigrants who would be eligible for work permits under the bill passed by the Senate last summer. “The administration has unquestionable legal authority to provide all those who would qualify for citizenship under the bipartisan Senate Bill

US military discloses secret military
presence in Somalia of up to 120 troops

The U.S. military has secretly operated in Somalia since around 2007 and the Obama administration is planning on expanding that assistance to help counter the Al Qaeda-linked group al Shabaab. A senior U.S. defense official confirmed to Fox News Wednesday the details of the military presence, which were first reported by Reuters. An Obama administration official told Reuters there are approximately 120 U.S. troops on the ground in Somalia serving as trainers and advisers. The troops are “not involved in combat,” the official said. The Pentagon announced in January that it sent a handful of advisers in 2013 to Somalia,

A Colorado woman was arrested at the Denver airport in April and charged with conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists, according to court documents that were unsealed Wednesday. Shannon Maureen Conley, 19, allegedly told FBI agents before her arrest that she was going to be with a member of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, that she had met through the Internet. "It´s a difficult time for us," her mother, Ana Conley, told CNN on Wednesday. Conley´s attorney, Robert William Pepin, said he had no comment. His client was arrested on a jetway while trying to board a flight to

Most states remain at a loss for jobs

WASHINGTON– Five years after the Great Recession officially ended, most states still haven’t regained all the jobs they lost, even though the nation as a whole has. In May, the overall economy finally recovered all 9 million jobs that vanished in the worst downturn since the 1930s. Another month of solid hiring is expected in the U.S. jobs report for June that will be released today. Yet 32 states still have fewer jobs than when the recession began in December 2007 – evidence of the unevenness and persistently slow pace of the recovery. Even though economists declared the recession over

James Varney of the Times-Picayune in New Orleans, stayed at the Hyatt Place hotel in Riverhead, NY. He tried to look at the Drudge Report, but was blocked from doing so by his hotel’s internet connection. In fact, he tried looking at a number of conservative websites, including Powerline and Instapundit. They too were blocked. He then tried a number of liberal websites from Talking Points Memo to DailyKos. None of them had access problems. His hotel, Hyatt Place, uses Uniguest to connect its guests to the internet. Digging deeper, I contacted the good people of Uniguest. A cheery online chatter

As some Murrieta residents are coming out of the Murrieta Mesa High School auditorium - packed to the brim with people - some of the pro-immigration folks are kind of challenging and taunting with an American flag the attendees that are there to protest the 140 illegal migrants that tried to be processed in Murrieta Tuesday, ultimately ending up in the Border Patrol Station in San Ysidro due to the Murrieta protest. Meantime, another headline is evolving Wednesday night: Murrieta, population 100,000, taking on the federal government. "Do you have a handle - a real handle - on what this is

  



Obama is paying the price for

The joke about the obsessively doting mother comes to mind. Watching her son parade with rows of fellow troops, she notices he is on his left foot when they are all on the right. “Why are they out of step?” she asks. So it is with Barack Obama. The nation is turning against him, yet he shouts to the heavens that he is right and the country is wrong. Mothers can get away with that sort of thing. Presidents and their parties get shellacked.

News that Quinnipiac poll finds president Obama is the “worst president since World War II” was greeted with amusement. (Snip) . But the real news is this: it’s not working any more. Even Obamacare might actually be repealed. Liberal foreign policy might really go down in flames. Already the authorities are warning of bombs on inbound airline flights. And Obama might actually be the worst president since World War 2. Things used to be under control; what happened? What happened wasn’t the Republican Party.

The Palestinians accused Israeli extremists of abducting and killing an Arab teenager and burning his body Wednesday, sparking hours of clashes in east Jerusalem and drawing charges that the youth was murdered to avenge the killings of three kidnapped Israeli teens. Seeking to calm the explosive situation, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu urged a swift inquiry into the "reprehensible murder" and called on people to respect the rule of law. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said it was clear extremist Jewish settlers were responsible and called on Israel to bring the killers to justice. "The settlers have killed and burned a little boy.

The federal government launched a major public relations campaign Wednesday to try to urge Central Americans not to send their children to the U.S. as illegal immigrants, vowing to press that message through radio ads and billboards in those countries and interviews with Spanish-language press in the U.S. The billboards tell parents it’s not true that their children can get papers signifying legal status in the U.S. — an attempt to push back against the prevailing belief among some in Central America that if they can cross the U.S. border, they can stay. “I thought it would be easy for
