It´s Finally Time to Ban the Burka,
So Let´s Just Get On with It
Breitbart London [UK], by Milo Yiannopoulos    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 7/7/2014 8:45:33 AM     Post Reply
On Wednesday, the Telegraph´s Allison Pearson—bravely, given the current climate—suggested that we should revisit the debate about banning the burka. "One day, the burkas, like a flock of crows, will come home to roost. Ban it. Now," she concludes. So say we all! And the good news is that I think a ban on wearing the burka in public places in Britain is probably inevitable. [Snip] As an ugly symbol of Islamism and its systematic injustices toward women, the burka is unrivalled—and horribly sinister. Tell MAMA, an organization set up to track anti-Muslim sentiment, says the veil is involved in

Searching for Hillary Clinton’s big idea
Politico, by David Nather    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 7/7/2014 8:41:42 AM     Post Reply
Here’s one thing you won’t find in Hillary Clinton’s book: a clear reason to run for president again. The “Hard Choices” book tour has had all the trappings of a warm-up for 2016, and even though Clinton insists she hasn’t decided yet, she keeps dropping hints that she has ideas for the future of the country. “You’ve got to ask people who want to run for anything, but particularly president, what’s your vision? What is your vision for our country, and do you think you can lead us there?” Clinton said at a CNN “town hall” forum.

Why we´re not talking
about Ed Klein

Marc Ambinder explains why it´s safe to ignore Edward Klein´s new book about the so-called blood feud between the Obamas and the Clintons: A lot of Blood Feud is highly improbable. I cannot say that it is false, or fake-but-accurate, because I cannot know for sure, and it would be reckless for me to assert that this reporting is not true simply because some of his previous reporting has been soundly discredited. ... But I am struck by how deeply skeptical conservatives are about Klein, with master logician Rush Limbaugh questioning the truthfulness of his dialogue and Fox News hosts finding

Bloomberg’s gun group to start 2014 midterms
strategy by surveying candidates
Washington Post, by Philip Rucker    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 7/7/2014 8:13:03 AM     Post Reply
The gun-control group founded by former New York mayor Michael R. Bloomberg (I) will begin surveying all federal candidates in the 2014 midterm elections on gun issues Monday as it tries to become a political counterweight to the National Rifle Association. This is the first big step by Bloomberg — who has committed to spending $50 million of his personal fortune this year to build a national grass-roots movement that will pressure lawmakers to pass more restrictive gun laws — to devise a political strategy heading into the November elections. Bloomberg’s group, Everytown for Gun Safety, is asking all Senate and House

Dolly Parton offers to adopt dog

Dolly Parton works from Nine to Five--but she might have to find time to be a pet owner too after she offered to adopt a dog left behind at Glastonbury. The country legend said she would take in the white lurcher if her owner is not found. The canine was discovered in a tent during a clean-up after thousands of festival-goers left the site. She was named Dolly after the star who stole the show at the event eight days ago. The dog was taken in by the Happy Landings shelter, close to the Glastonbury venue at Worthy Farm in

Racial differences are real but

“New analyses of the human genome establish that human evolution has been recent, copious and regional,” writes Nicholas Wade in his recently published book A Troublesome Inheritance: Genes, Race and Human History. That sounds reasonable, and Wade, a science reporter and editor for many years at Nature and the New York Times, seems an unimpeachable source. But many well-meaning people will regard his words as provocative and even dangerous. For they fatally undermine the idea, widely shared by so-called progressives, that any apparent differences between groups of people are the product of nurture rather than nature, of social conditioning rather than

Can Shameless, Baseless Propaganda

For most of 2014, the Democrats looked on the looming congressional elections with considerable dread. All of the standard indicators portend an unhappy outcome for their party.(snip) Then came last week’s Hobby Lobby ruling. In that imminently sensible Supreme Court decision, the Democrats found an unhoped-for opportunity for shameless demagoguery. Indulging their gift for Orwellian rhetoric, they declared that the Court had re-opened hostilities in the fabled “war on women.” (snip) Millions of American women, they thundered, will now be denied access to birth control because five male justices sided with the closet theocrats who own Hobby Lobby.

Why Congress Must Reopen
the TWA 800 Investigation
American Thinker, by Jack Cashill    Original Article
Posted By: magnante- 7/7/2014 6:59:07 AM     Post Reply
On July 2, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) announced that it would not reopen the investigation into the destruction of TWA 800. This was the Boeing 747 that was blown out of the sky ten miles south of the Long Island coast on July 17, 1996, killing all 230 people on board. The TWA 800 Project, a team of former aviation investigators and scientists, had petitioned the NTSB to examine evidence that pointed toward a missile strike on the airline. Not surprisingly, the NTSB, which had invested four years of resources to prove some other theory, any other theory, chose

A Company Liberals Could Love

FOR a generation now, liberals have bemoaned the disappearance of the socially conscious corporation, the boardroom devoted to the common good. Once, the story goes, America’s C.E.O.s recognized that they shared interests with workers and customers; once wages and working hours reflected more than just a zeal for profits. But then came Reagan, deregulation, hostile takeovers, and an era of solidarity gave way to the age of Gordon Gekko, from which there’s been no subsequent escape. There are, however, exceptions: companies that still have a sense of business as a moral calling, which can be held up as examples to

Washington - The Obama administration on Sunday sought to play down new disclosures that the National Security Agency has swept up innocent and often personal emails from ordinary Internet users as it targets suspected terrorists in its global surveillance for potential threats.Administration officials said the agency routinely filters out the communications of Americans and information that is of no intelligence value. The statements came in response to a report by The Washington Post, based on a trove of conversations intercepted by the N.S.A. The Post’s analysis of the data, including information that Edward J.

Why Obama Ignored Iraq

ISIS marching through Iraq has smashed the media’s taboo against criticizing Obama’s foreign policy. Substantive discussions are taking place about why his foreign policy is such a miserable failure. And they mostly miss the point. Liberal journalists still proceed from the fallacy that there was a foreign policy debate between neo-conservative interventionists and liberal non-interventionists. These are a series of digested Bush era talking points that have no relationship to reality since Bush’s foreign policy on Iraq carried over from Bill Clinton. It’s why Hillary gets so uncomfortable when she has to discuss her vote on Iraq.

Don´t sign away US sovereignty

Four weeks after D-Day, having fought fiercely for 28 consecutive days, American troops were still within eyeshot of the Normandy coast. They were already short of artillery rounds, but Gen. Omar Bradley didn’t care. The commander of U.S. ground forces was determined to send the enemy a message. And so, to mark U.S. independence on July 4, 1944, Bradley ordered every artillery piece in the American sector to fire one round at noon — in the enemy’s direction. The 1,600-gun salute sent German defenders ducking for cover along the front. This year marks the 70th anniversary of that campaign. For many, the “great

Gladys Lopez allowed her four year-old illegal immigrant daughter to travel to the US. Now she can’t find her. The Obama administration lost track of the little girl. Gladys Lopez spoke with her daughter briefly after she made it across the international border. What happened to the girl remains a mystery. KRGV reported: The Obama Administration has lost track of an illegal immigrant girl. The four-year-old girl is just one of thousands who have been taken into custody by border patrol agents.Gladys Lopez says she was able to speak with her daughter, Eliana, briefly over the phone after she was taken into custody.

Deportation data won´t dispel rumors

President Obama and his aides have repeatedly sought to dispel the rumors driving thousands of children and teens from Central America to cross the U.S. border each month with the expectation they will be given a permiso and allowed to stay. But under the Obama administration, those reports have proved increasingly true. The number of immigrants under 18 who were deported or turned away at ports of entry fell from 8,143 in 2008, the last year of the George W. Bush administration, to 1,669 last year, according to Immigration and Customs Enforcement data released under a Freedom of Information Act request. Similarly, about

Reporters and commentators have been drawn to civil-war metaphors in describing the fight between the “establishment” and “tea party” wings of the Republican party for years now, and it has usually seemed overwrought. Then along came the shocking upset of House majority leader Eric Cantor in Virginia, followed by a Thad Cochran–Chris McDaniel Senate primary in Mississippi that was about as pleasant as the Battle of Chickamauga. The drama of these elections — Cantor’s defeat was literally historic, and Cochran’s victory will generate ill feelings for a long time to come — has obscured the larger story of the evolution of

Hillary Clinton Speaks About
Defense of Child Rapist
Washington Free Beacon, by Alana Goodman    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 7/7/2014 5:35:52 AM     Post Reply
Hillary Clinton weighed in on her 1975 legal defense of an accused child rapist on Saturday, her first comments on the case since it came under scrutiny following a Washington Free Beacon report last month. Clinton spoke in clinical, legal terms while explaining her defense of the rapist, who Clinton helped to avoid a lengthy prison term by relying on a technicality relating to the chain of evidence of his blood-soaked underwear, as well as arguing at the time that the 12-year-old victim may have exaggerated or encouraged the attack. “When you are a lawyer, you often don’t have the choice as

The President is “Pi**ed”!

Triangulation Beats Coalition Maintenance, Part XVIII: Major Garrett produces an excellent account** of Obama’s meeting with immigration activists last Monday, before the president announced he’d take “aggressive” executive actions to “fix as much of our immigration system as we can” without going through Congress. Highlights: 1) Obama’s revealingly thin-skinned. La Raza’s Janet Murguia had called him “Deporter-in-Chief,” so La Raza didn’t get invited. Oddly, Obama’s super-sensitivity here seems of a piece with the “coalition of the left” approach that has crippled his presidency. In his preferred mode of operation, Obama seeks to maximize his influence by working together with his natural

At least a half-dozen federal immigration agents have come under investigation since 2012 for snooping into law enforcement databases — computer misconduct ranging from “self queries” to accusations that one of them tried to use the databases to warn drug smugglers if they were under investigation. The information, gleaned from highly redacted records obtained through the Freedom of Information Act, includes the investigation of one Customs and Border Protection officer tied to a “drug-trafficking organization that has utilized compromised law-enforcement officers in the past.” Border analyst James Phelps, a professor at Angelo State University, estimates that as many as 300 law

Hillary´s ´Not One Of Us´ Problem

It did not take Hillary’s book fiasco to show she is no Obama. Hillary Clinton’s problems predate and far exceed her currently botched book tour. They extend to her relations with the Democratic base. If she cannot correct these, and quickly, she is likely to relive her 2008 humiliation at their hands. That Hillary Clinton’s book tour — ostensibly promoting Hard Choices, but really paving the way for a 2016 White House run — has been terrible goes without saying. What should not go without noticing is just how unlike Obama it is. In just weeks, Hillary has brought back the bad

Coaches know that there is nothing more dangerous for a sports team than retreating into passivity out of fear of making a mistake. Whether it is because of a desire to sit on a lead or because of nerves following a setback, failing to advance aggressively is almost always a strategic error. What is true in athletic competition is all too true in the life of nations. While imprudence is never good, excessive caution in the name of prudence or expediency can have grave consequences. A nation will never have more power or influence than it has ambition to shape the

  



2014 Senate rankings: Map favors GOP

Posted By: StormCnter- 7/7/2014 5:10:02 AM     Post Reply
With four months until Election Day, Republicans are as close to winning the Senate as they’ve been since losing it in 2006. Six months ago, the GOP path to the majority was narrower: Republicans essentially had to sweep seven races in states Barack Obama lost in 2012 but where Democrats currently hold seats. Unlikely, in other words. Now Republicans have more options. They’ve landed top recruits to take on first-term senators in New Hampshire and Colorado, nominated credible female candidates in open-seat contests in Michigan and Iowa, protected all of their incumbents from tea party challenges and thwarted more conservative candidates that

Here’s to hoping you enjoyed your long Independence Day weekend. I sure enjoyed mine, because it wasn’t until today that I looked past the touchy-feelgood headline numbers in the June jobs report. 288,000 new jobs and the unemployment rate dropped to 6.1%, the lowest it’s been since before the beginning of the Great Recession. Even the figures for April and May were unexpectedly revised upwards. Helping to keep that good mood humming along was the big increase in auto sales, which “shattered expectations.” Sales were so hot that even beleaguered GM, which in recent months has announced recalls for seemingly

Is any freedom more important, more sacred than the right to raise a family without government intrusion? It’s a good question to ask this Independence Day weekend, as Americans reflect on the birth of a nation dedicated to the preservation of individual liberties: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” But as government grows bigger and more powerful, as politicians, bureaucrats and busybodies increasingly think they know best, American families constantly must fight interference

Cory Booker’s scary big lead

Normally, Cory Booker would be feeling pretty confident, given his 20-point lead over GOP challenger Jeffrey Bell. But a closer look at the latest poll numbers suggests Booker may have a rougher ride to re-election than anyone anticipated. That’s because the New Jersey senator’s support clocks in at just 43 percent. The same poll, by the Monmouth University-Asbury Park Press, has more than a third of voters saying it’s time for a change, though Booker’s been in office only eight months. Fully 15 percent — including one in eight Democrats — say they would vote for a third-party candidate. This, even though the
