Obama: It’s Lonely Doing All The Work
Washington Free Beacon, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 7/11/2014 5:30:20 AM     Post Reply
[Video] Obama complained Thursday that he’s “lonely” doing all the work in Washington by himself, without Congress. “You know it is lonely, me just doing stuff. I’d love it if the Republicans did stuff too,” he said during his speech in Austin, Texas. “Sometimes I feel like saying to these guys: ‘I’m the guy doing my job. You must be the other guy’,” Obama remarked, quoting Mark Wahlberg’s character in “a great movie called ‘The Departed.’ A little violent for kids.”

A life-or-death fight for Israel
New York Daily News, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 7/11/2014 5:25:04 AM     Post Reply
The war now raging between Israel and Hamas is a test of Israel’s ability to defend itself, even as it aims to become more Silicon Wadi (Arabic for valley) and less Warrior Nation. Right now, the Jewish state is trying to put down attacks from Gaza through air power, coupled with an array of anti-missile systems designed to knock-down incomings. But the reality is that every missile that hits Israel is a victory for the Palestinians. In asymmetric warfare, dragging the fight out is as good as winning. Although Israel has already carried out more raids than it did in the

Obama´s ´Cease-Fire´ Offer
Is a Betrayal of Israel
Breitbart National Security, by Joel B. Pollack    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 7/11/2014 5:24:19 AM     Post Reply
Cease-fire proposals in wars between Israel and its neighbors are predictable: as soon as Israel is winning, the United Nations demands a cease-fire. As Dore Gold ably documents in his Tower of Babble: How the United Nations Has Fueled Global Chaos, cease-fires typically prevent a decisive end to the conflict. They have often guaranteed further war in the long run by providing a temporary calm that allows Israel´s enemies to regroup. President Barack Obama offered Thursday to broker a cease-fire between Israel and the Palestinians--actually, the Hamas terror organization. That is one of the worst ideas, among many contenders, ever

Teepee Populism

If Elizabeth Warren ends up being the Democratic Party’s presidential nominee in 2016, don’t be surprised if she runs as a centrist, or even as a cultural conservative. The senator from Massachusetts and Harvard Law School professor known as the scourge of the banks and the inventor of the federal Consumer Financial Protection Bureau will talk about her lesser-known roles as a Sunday school teacher, devoted grandmother, and loving dog-owner. She’ll talk about how she enjoys drinking beer and eating fried clams, McDonald’s, Burger King, and Mounds chocolate bars. She’ll talk about her Air Force pilot Vietnam veteran brother and

Beanie Baby billionaire
balks at the Big House

Lawyers for billionaire Beanie Baby creator and convicted tax cheat Ty Warner say he’s “a self-made man with a generous heart” and a federal judge was right not to send him to the big house. Prosecutors were left fuming in January after Warner was handed just two years probation and 500 hours community service for hiding $100 million in secret Swiss bank accounts to con the IRS. In February, they asked the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to order Warner be resentenced. But attorneys for the 69-year-old Oak Brook toy industry titan argued in a 57-page court filing Thursday

‘Dirty Harry’ Reid’s increasing eccentricity
Washington Times, by Wesley Pruden    Original Article

Harry Reid is the majority bumpkin of the U.S. Senate, vying with the vice president to say weird, goofy, sometimes amusing and often embarrassing things. His Democratic colleagues typically chuckle, roll their eyes, and put it down to ol’ Harry just being old Harry. (He’s only 78, but in his case, 78 is the new 90.) Long-suffering aides shrug at his bellicose ad-libs and call it “just Harry getting out ahead of his skis.” Nevertheless, when he stands up on the Senate floor, his colleagues hold their breath. No one can predict what’s going to come out of the motorized mouth.

John Kerry, the American Secretary of State, is in Afghanistan to try to broker a deal between the two candidates in last month’s runoff election where both are claiming victory. [Snip] Preliminary results put the former World Bank economist Ashraf Ghani in the lead with 56.4 percent of the vote. However, Mr Abdullah has rejected the count. Mr Kerry arrived in Kabul pre-dawn to meet today the two contenders plus the current leader, President Hamid Karzai.

More Than a Smidgen
Weekly Standard, by Stephen F. Hayes    Original Article

The facts are simple. The IRS systematically targeted conservative and Tea Party groups after their activism proved decisive in the 2010 midterm elections—Obama’s famous “shellacking.” The effects of this targeting were widespread. Some Tea Party groups were neutered in the months before the 2012 presidential election. Few of the explanations or justifications of this targeting provided by IRS leaders and Obama administration officials have held up. IRS officials at first denied that any targeting had taken place. That was false. They later claimed that the targeting had involved only low-level employees in the Cincinnati office. That was false. They argued

House Speaker John Boehner put himself one step closer to suing the President of the United States on Thursday, unveiling a resolution permitting the move and attracting return fire from the White House. Announcing late in the day that the legal action will focus on the Affordable Care Act, Boehner fumed that Barack Obama had ´changed the health care law without a vote of Congress´ in 2013, ´effectively creating his own law by literally waiving the employer mandate and the penalties for failing to comply with it.´ [Snip] The Obama administration has taken several actions that Republicans say twisted the

President Barack Obama really wants you to know that Republicans share the blame for the ongoing crisis at the border. In fact, he spent the majority of his address on the border crisis on Wednesday not discussing the border crisis, per se, but the variety of ways in which his administration should not be faulted for this disaster. After noting that he did take the time out of his fundraising schedule for a closed-door meeting with Texas Gov. Rick Perry, a concession of regal magnanimity upon which we must reflect in gratitude, Obama noted that he is at least open to

Why Boehner’s Lawsuit
Against Obama Could Work

The Speaker’s suit is not some political stunt, and could actually be successful. Since Speaker John Boehner announced his intention late last month to sue President Obama for overstepping his legal authority, his supporters have frequently noted how few executive orders he’s actually handed down. To date, Obama has only issued 182, while the predecessor he likes to blame for everything issued 291. But the real issue, of course, is not the number of executive orders issued during one’s presidency but rather their legality. And it’s here that Boehner and company have a real, substantive case against the president. Obama has issued at

Why media groups are accusing
the administration of ‘censorship’
Fox News, by Howard Kurtz    Original Article

Journalists have been fuming for years over the administration’s failure to live up to President Obama’s promises of transparent government. But it’s even worse than you thought. The focus, naturally, has been on the White House, where reporters press for scraps of information in the briefing room and news photographers are sometimes barred from events, supplanted by official photogs whose work amounts to propaganda. But it turns out the problem is even more insidious where the real day-to-day business of government gets done, in federal departments and agencies. In an unusual alliance, a number of journalism organizations have banded together to denounce what they

How Israel´s Iron Dome Works

With the crisis in the Middle East escalating as Israel and Hamas continue to exchange missile fire, renewed attention has come to Israel´s defense system, the Iron Dome. The anti-missile defense system has been responsible for intercepting militant rockets targeted at Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, Israel´s two largest cities. As seen in video footage taken by ABC News, the Iron Dome intercepts missiles mid-air in a matter of seconds. First, the system identifies incoming missiles and then determines whether their range and direction threatens a highly populated area, like a city. If the incoming missile is deemed a threat than Iron Dome

Officers Say No Stand-
Down Order For Benghazi

WASHINGTON -- Military officers testified that there was no "stand-down order" that held back military assets that could have saved the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans killed at a diplomatic outpost and CIA annex in Benghazi, Libya. Their testimony undercut the contention of Republican lawmakers. The "stand-down" theory centers on a Special Operations team - a detachment leader, a medic, a communications expert and a weapons operator with his foot in a cast - that was stopped from flying from Tripoli to Benghazi after the attacks of Sept. 11-12, 2012, had ended. Instead, it was instructed to help protect and

Mississippi GOP chairman Joe Nosef issued a statement Thursday in response to the latest legal actions from True The Vote, saying he plans to target the election integrity organization and its lawsuit’s various Mississippi voter plaintiffs with legal action. Nosef said the Republican Party in Mississippi plans to seek “sanctions against” the various Mississippi voters who have signed on as plaintiffs to True The Vote’s lawsuit against the party and Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann, labeling the accusations the election integrity group made as “frivolous litigation.” “This out of state group ´True the Vote´ continues in its attempts to make a mockery

Former Congressman Ernest Istook (R-Oklahoma) has a plan to deal with tens of thousands of illegal immigrants who have arrived on the southern border in recent weeks: Fly them home. More importantly, he said this can be achieved for 99.5% less than the $3.8 billion that President Barack Obama is asking for to house 30,000 illegal aliens for a year. From his column in The Washington Times: At the unofficial reported cost of $250 per person per day, President Barack Obama is proposing we spend $1.8 billion “to provide appropriate care for unaccompanied children.” That works out to 19,726 minors for a year.

FONTANA, CA -- Breitbart News has learned that 46 illegal aliens, mostly women and children originally destined for the U.S. Border Patrol station in Murrieta, CA, were bused instead Thursday to the St. Joseph´s Catholic Church in Fontana, roughly 45 miles north. The 46 are among several hundred Central Americans who were caught crossing the U.S.-Mexico border in Texas and have been transferred to California since. "The faith calls on us to do this," San Bernadino Diocese spokesperson John Andrews told Breitbart News. He said that the aliens would, in less than 24 hours, be driven from the church in individual

Lisa Maloney Vinton, a Murrieta resident, provided Breitbart Texas with a purported copy of the advertisement, which was put up by the Crittenton Services and Foster Family Agency. It says, "Help heal the wounds ... for children in foster care programs including survivors of human trafficking and unaccompanied refugee minors.

Far right wing extremists have been emboldened by the standoff earlier this year between Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and the federal government, according to a study released Thursday by the Southern Poverty Law Center. The report, entitled "War in the West" examines the conflict between the U.S. Bureau of Land Management and militiamen who supported Bundy, who owed more than $1 million in grazing fees and fines to the government, despite insisting that he had "preemptive rights" to let his cattle graze on the federally owned land. The incident came as a result of a U.S. District Court ruling that he had

As is often bemoaned by scholars, genuine classical education in American schools is virtually non-existent. Whereas 100 years ago, university students learned Greek and Latin, today, remedial math and English instruction is the norm. Yet, if people had a glimpse of Solon who lived approximately from 640-560 BCE, they would take to heart his warning about the "Signs of Dictatorship." The power of hail and snow springs from a cloud, and thunder from the fire of lightning. Strong men destroy a city, and a tyrant enslaves a people through their ignorance.

One sign of an imperial government is that it does what it wishes with whole populations. It can shift some here; move some there. It can deport some there; import some here. Who will say “No” when facing armed might? Authoritarian governments can pretty much do what they wish to do. The motives behind moving whole populations via executive fiat break down into two main categories. One is to prevent revolution and unrest by moving and quarantining what are considered indigestible peoples in order to weaken their resistance to the powers that be.

Barack´s Bull Run?

For some reason the cameras that are banned on the border were not banned from the Wynkoop Brewing Co. pizza and pool hall in Colorado where, in lieu of the middle finger, Barack Obama flipped a pool stick at America, banged back a few brewskis and yukked it up with Democratic governor John Hickenlooper. Cameras being banned from liberal policy hubs most assuredly indicates that whatever is going on there, if truth be told and visuals matched with verbal accounts, the American people would be horrified. That’s probably the reason why cameras are banned from abortion clinics and sonograms are opposed

COLUMBIA--Republican Gov. Nikki Haley had a record fundraising haul in the past quarter, her campaign said Thursday, doubling her Democratic opponent state Sen. Vincent Sheheen´s take for the same period. Haley racked up around $1.05 million in donations for the quarter ending June 30, leaving her effort with $4.46 million in the bank, Haley´s campaign said in a statement. It was her most successful funding effort of any quarter, Haley´s campaign said. The number of donors and the campaign´s complete quarterly report--which were due by the end of Thursday--were not immediately available. Sheehen raised $505,088 from 1,819 contributors in the

Dozens of experts will be weighing in, in coming days, on Israel´s right to self-defence in response to hundreds of Hamas rockets raining down. But what about the Palestinian people, and what’s good for them? Yesterday, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas accused Israel of committing "genocide" in Gaza with their current operation "Protective Edge." This type of inflammatory rhetoric is particularly rich coming from someone who is responsible for the murder of hundreds of Israelis (including the murder of the 1972 Israeli Olympic Team in Munich). Sadly, this is hardly the first time Abbas has made statements that, in light

Unseasonably chilly air is headed for parts of the northern and northeastern U.S. where residents have been sweltering in 90 degree weather this week--as one would expect in July. Thankfully, families won´t be plunged into the despair they endured during January´s brutally cold weather pattern.
