Dinesh D´Souza´s new movie points
conservatives in the right direction
Creators Syndicate., by David Limbaugh    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 7/8/2014 11:06:06 AM     Post Reply
Do we conservatives really mean it when we say that we need to promote our ideas in the popular culture through books, movies and other media? If so, we need to support people like Dinesh D´Souza and his latest movie and book, America: Imagine a World Without Her. I saw the movie, and I loved it. D´Souza is a passionate patriot who "chose this country" and loves it with every fiber of his being. Like many of the rest of us, he recognizes that America is under assault, and he is doing all he can to save it. In the

Tucker Carlson: Menendez claim ´bizarre´
Politico, by Hadas Gold    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 7/8/2014 11:04:26 AM     Post Reply
Daily Caller editor-in-chief Tucker Carlson said he would be shocked if the Cuban government concocted the story that Sen. Bob Menenedez had cavorted with underage prostitutes in the Dominican Republic -- an accusation brought this week by Menenedez´s lawyers in a new report from The Washington Post. "I really can’t assess it without more information,” Carlson told the Post. “It’s bizarre on its face, but also fascinating.” Menendez is asking the Justice Department to pursue evidence obtained by investigators that Cuban agents had planted the story about the prostitutes, which was first reported by the conservative website shortly before election day 2012.

Does Braley claim to be a farmer
in this parade route exchange?

Democrat Bruce Braley, who was caught on tape in January making a remark that seemed to besmirch Iowa farmers, has been caught on tape seemingly claiming to be one. "We´re farmers," a parade attendee appears to tells Braley, a U.S. Senate candidate, during the Fourth of July parade in Iowa Falls last weekend. "So am I," Braley answers in a video shared with The Des Moines Register today. "But so is Grassley," says the woman, who is seated in a lawn chair on the side of the road. "So am I," Braley insists. Braley is not an active farmer. He doesn´t own farm land and

NASA´s Zombie Spacecraft
Learns to Fire Its Engines

The quest to save the ISEE-3—a long-lost NASA probe launched in the disco era and abandoned in the dot-com boom—might just succeed. Late last week, the amateur scientists and engineers working to salvage the probe hit a major milestone: They coaxed the craft into firing its rotational thrusters. The achievement is important for many reasons. While the amateur team trying to reboot the ISEE-3 has been in radio contact with the probe for more than a month, this is the first time it has successfully commanded moving parts onboard. It’s important for technical reasons. The ISEE-3 is “spin-stabilized,” meaning it

Side effects: Half of brokers
consider leaving post-Obamacare

Nearly half of insurance brokers polled nationally have considered leaving the industry in the wake of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) – meanwhile, employers say they need them more than ever before, according to a report by Aflac. A potential exodus of brokers could make it more difficult for large and small businesses to lose that expertise just as things are getting really complicated. Brokers help companies give employees the best and most affordable coverage and insure they comply with the complexities of the ACA. Brokers have been on the front lines of the ACA changes that are forcing businesses, hospitals and

Obama border funding: Most money
to care, feed, transport illegal
immigrants; little for deportations
Washington Examiner, by Byron York    Original Article

It´s still a little unclear exactly how much money President Obama will request to deal with the crisis of thousands of families and unaccompanied children crossing the border into the United States illegally. But there are indications the vast majority of the funding will go to caring for the illegal immigrants who are already here -- feeding, housing, and transporting them to new American homes -- while a far smaller amount will go to sending some of those immigrants back to their home countries and preventing future immigrants from crossing into the U.S. illegally. The president will ask for a

Mississippi´s US Senate race has devolved into a shower of accusations piled on state Republican stalwarts of secret donations and vote-buying, and I´m rather enjoying it. Go ahead, Tea Party, I say. It´s time to shine some light on how elections are done in my state, and everywhere – even if it takes some whack-a-doo right-wingers to flip that switch. Though it´s been fun to watch the GOP establishment come under fire after Thad Cochran´s razor-thin primary runoff win last month, I´m mostly happy that others are finally clueing into what I´ve long known exists: evidence that elections in our state

  


  

Dinesh D’Souza book
yanked from Costco shelves
Washington Times, by Cheryl K. Chumley    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 7/8/2014 10:38:42 AM     Post Reply
Costco has suddenly — and according to author Dinesh D’Souza, inexplicably —booted his book from stores nationwide, ordering chain operators to clear their shelves of “America: Imagine a World Without Her” by July 15. Mr. D’Souza said roughly 3,600 copies of his newest release has sold at Costco already, but he has no idea why the chain refuses to sell more. “We’re in the process of finding out what’s happening,” he told WND. “I look forward to getting to the bottom of this and continuing the strong relationship my publisher and I have always had with Costco and their millions

Obama to dine with woman

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama is calling attention to a Colorado woman who got a raise after Obama called for an increase in the minimum wage. Obama will have dinner in Denver on Tuesday with a woman the White House is identifying only as Alex. White House senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer says Alex´s boss voluntarily raised her pay the day after Obama´s January State of the Union address. That´s when Obama urged Congress to raise the federal minimum to $10.10 an hour. Pfeiffer says the raise allowed Alex to pay her rent and groceries without concern and says Alex wrote Obama to

DENVER - The biggest name in the Democratic Party plans to speak Wednesday at Denver´s Cheesman Park, but President Barack Obama won´t be sharing the stage with three Colorado Democrats now in the fight of their political careers. Missing from the morning event — which is closed to the public but open to the media — will be U.S. Sen. Mark Udall, Gov. John Hickenlooper and Andrew Romanoff, the former state House speaker now running for a seat in Congress. All three Democrats are locked in competitive elections this fall, but aides to each one said the boss won´t be attending the

Cameras coming to monitor

ST. PETERSBURG — Police will soon have a new tool to protect cyclists and joggers on a crime-ridden stretch of the Pinellas Trail: camera surveillance. Up to 25 cameras are planned to be installed on the trail in the Child’s Park area by this fall in a pilot program that could be extended to other stretches of the trail. The move was prompted by a spate of robberies in February including one attack where a woman was pistol-whipped in the face causing her to lose several teeth. The infra-red cameras will be dotted along a half-mile section of the former

Attorney General Eric Holder
Warns of Syria Terror Threat

Posted By: Scottyboy- 7/8/2014 10:20:47 AM     Post Reply
Attorney General Eric Holder urged European countries Tuesday to become more aggressive in countering the threat of Westerners who receive training from terrorists in Syria. "This is a global crisis in need of a global solution," Holder said. "The Syrian conflict has turned that region into a cradle of violent extremism. But the world cannot simply sit back and let it become a training ground from which our nationals can return and launch attacks." He warned that Western democracies cannot be passive. "If we wait for our nations´ citizens to travel to Syria, to become radicalized, and to return home,

How an obscure Mississippi state senator became the poster boy for all that’s wrong with the right. There is an odd sort of political bubble emanating from my home state of Mississippi. And like most bubbles, it has more to do with wish fulfillment than reality. As Carmen Reinhart and Kenneth Rogoff observed in their classic This Time Is Different, “there are usually remarkable similarities of past experience” linking manias that, in retrospect, seem so obviously unhinged. Believing that tulips are the most valuable commodities in international commerce or betting that house prices can only go up requires a suspension of critical

After a disappointing primary season, the Tea Party is getting set for a revival going into the fall general elections with one of the nation´s leading movement representatives, the 2.5 million member TheTeaParty.net, bringing back its top strategist to run the organization. On Tuesday, the Washington-based group announced the appointment of Niger Innis as executive director. The prominent black conservative and civil rights activist ran an insurgent House campaign in Las Vegas, Nev., but came in second. Innis, who challenged the election results, was the TheTeaParty.net chief strategist before taking leave to campaign. “After a raucous congressional run, I’m pleased to rejoin my

The White House officially said Thursday what Twitter and MailOnline knew days beforehand: that President Barack Obama would travel to Colorado and Texas this week for a series of fundraisers. The events weren´t part of the president´s public schedule, but they became common knowledge after enterprising reporters obtained copies of exclusive invites for events with the president and shared them online. The omission from Obama’s public schedule wasn’t an anomaly. The president and his administration have made a habit out of telling reporters at the last minute about previously scheduled out-of-town trips, fundraisers and speaking engagements. Every president has a

Vials of morphine were systemically stolen from a Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Medical Center and replaced with water and saline so that dying veterans got the wrong treatments, a longtime VA nurse told The Daily Caller. “A nurse taking care of hospice patients over the past year had been diverting vials of morphine,” said Valerie Riviello, a 28-year veteran nurse at the Albany Stratton VA Medical Center in Albany, New York. “Those patients that were dying in hospice were not getting their intended pain medication.” Management became aware of the recurring theft without reporting it to higher levels of

Shootings, beheadings, hangings and crucifixions continued in ISIS-controlled Iraq over the holiday weekend. The Obama team also took a break from its grueling daily photo-ops designed to change the topic of discussion from all the ongoing Obama predicaments. [Snip] After a brief appearance at a party for military, Obama played golf. This afternoon he’s off for three days of Colorado and Texas fundraisers. Analysts, meanwhile, pored over an unusual videotape released by the terrorists currently conquering Iraq. It purports to show Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the shadowy head of ISIS, speaking in a Mosul mosque at Friday prayers.

Life is hard. It´s harder still when an entire class of people with their hands out stands between you and success. Unfortunately, that´s increasingly the problem, all around the world. A recent New York Times piece tells the story of a Greek woman´s efforts to survive that country´s financial collapse. After losing her job, she tried to start a pastry business, only to find the regulatory environment impossible. Among other things, they wanted her to pay the business´s first two years of taxes up front, before it had taken in a cent. When the business failed, her lesson was this: "I,

President Barack Obama is holding off for now on seeking new legal authority to send unaccompanied migrant kids back home faster from the Southern border, following criticism that the administration´s planned changes were too harsh. Instead when Obama formally asks Congress for more than $2 billion in emergency spending Tuesday to deal with the border crisis, the request will not be accompanied by the policy changes that the White House had indicated it planned to seek, according to two congressional aides. The aides spoke Monday on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak about the matter by name

After turning down "a quick handshake on the tarmac" with President Obama, Gov. Rick Perry, R-Texas, will sit down with the president for a "substantive meeting" on Wednesday. Mr. Obama is traveling to Austin Wednesday and Thursday for fundraisers and an event on the economy - but not to visit the U.S.-Mexico line seeing a surge of unaccompanied minors crossing the border - and had asked Perry to meet him at the airport. In a letter to the White House on Monday, Perry turned down what he called "a quick handshake on the tarmac." But Perry said he´d be willing to rearrange

  



Feds limit reporters on

As members of Congress and reporters ask to visit federal facilities housing children who have been apprehended by the U.S. in recent months, federal officials are slapping limits on members of the news media who want a glimpse inside. For example, an email sent to news organizations by Jesus Garcia, a public affairs officer for the Administration for Children and Families, a division of the Department of Health and Human Services, sets out a number of restrictions on reporters if they want to visit "Unaccompanied Alien Children" being held at Fort Sill in Oklahoma. "The purpose of this 40-minute tour
