Get ready for Saturday night’s
big, bright ‘supermoon’
Associated Press, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 7/11/2014 4:40:06 PM     Post Reply
NEW YORK — The full moon on Saturday will appear to be unusually big. In fact, it will be a “supermoon.” That’s the nickname for full moons that happen when our celestial neighbor is relatively close to Earth. That distance varies because the moon follows an elliptical orbit. When it’s close and full, it appears bigger and brighter than normal, although in fact the difference can be hard to detect. If you see Saturday’s moon close to the horizon it may seem huge, but that’s just an illusion caused by its position in the sky. Two other full moons this

Obama’s Law Professor: ‘I
Wouldn’t Bet’ on Obamacare
Surviving Next Legal Challenge
National Revew, by Joel Gehrke    Original Article

President Obama’s old Harvard Law professor, Laurence Tribe, said that he “wouldn’t bet the family farm” on Obamacare’s surviving the legal challenges to an IRS rule about who is eligible for subsidies that are currently working their way through the federal courts. “I don’t have a crystal ball,” Tribe told the Fiscal Times. “But I wouldn’t bet the family farm on this coming out in a way that preserves Obamacare.” The law’s latest legal problem is that, as written, people who enroll in Obamacare through the federal exchange aren’t eligible for subsidies. The text of the law only provides subsidies

Dems Trounce House GOP
in Grass-Roots Donations
Breitbart Big Government, by Mike Flynn    Original Article
Posted By: SpeedMaster- 7/11/2014 4:32:48 PM     Post Reply
The DCCC, the campaign arm for Rep. Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats, has raised $22 million more than the House GOP for the fall elections. That result is surprising enough, as Democrats´ minority status gives them little political leverage in the House. More surprising, though, is that Democrats have raised almost three times as much money, $46 million v. $17 million, as Republicans from small-dollar grass roots donors. The political landscape and recent polling would suggest the opposite situation.

Polar vortex to hit US with
midsummer cold blast
New York Post, by Chris Perez    Original Article
Posted By: mitzi- 7/11/2014 4:25:08 PM     Post Reply
It’s the revenge of the polar vortex! A frigid cold air system will be moving through the eastern United States next week, leading to intense weather conditions reminiscent of last year’s dreaded polar vortex. The approaching weather system is expected to bring overwhelmingly below-average temperatures to parts of the northern and northeastern US next week, beginning Monday or Tuesday, according to the Washington Post. States located in areas such as the High Plains, the central US and the Great Lakes could see temperatures 20 to 30 degrees below their current averages. That means people normally dealing with scorching temperatures sometimes

´Sit down,´ President Barack Obama begged – not ´get out´ – after two Hispanic hecklers interrupted his economic speech on Thursday with shouts about illegal immigration. Then, for the first time in his presidency, the Secret Service stood down and Obama promised to meet with them before he left.´I’m sorry, what are you yelling about now?´ Obama said amid the sudden yelling. ´Sit down, guys. I’m almost done.´ ´Come on, sit down. I’ll talk to you afterwards, I promise. I’ll bring you back. I’m wrapping things up here.´ SCROLL DOWN FOR VIDEO -The White House´s transcript of his remarks in

Bunker Hill, Illinois -Phil Burton remembers his daughter being very matter of fact over the phone that day. ‘Daddy I’m getting married to Charlie,’ she said. He wasn’t surprised. He had long ‘seen the writing on the wall.’ And he knew there would be no need to place an announcement in the local paper. Because his daughter’s fiancé is one of the most infamous convicted killers of all time and the story was about to break. It is eight months since Charles Manson’s 26-year-old girlfriend announced her intention to marry the 79-year-old convict. Dark-haired, slender and strikingly pretty, little was known,

n case you didn’t already believe that MSNBC’s Luke Russert is cable news’ biggest dudebro, he may have sealed the deal while filling in for Andrea Mitchell today. Just after 12:30pm ET on Friday, Russert brought on Rep. Steve Israel (D-NY) to discuss the partisan gridlock in Washington. King began going after a Republican Congress that “insists on suing the president” and “refuses to do almost anything” but only got to answer one real question before he was ushered off the screen. After speaking to his guest for a total of about 60 seconds, Russert cut the interview short to

Eleanor Clift of The Daily Beast profiled former New York Times executive editor Jill Abramson, and suggested she’s best known for asserting “the Obama administration is the most secretive of any she has covered, and in 22 years in Washington, that covers a lot of White Houses. She got plenty of grief from President Obama’s top aides in the aftermath, and while other journalists made the same observation, Abramson’s words carried weight, coming as they did from the prestigious newspaper’s first female top editor.” Clift added “Two months after leaving the Times, in case anyone is wondering, she isn’t backing

Congress backpedals on ethics

Remember those civics courses that taught "how a bill becomes a law"? Well, they need a follow-up called "how a law becomes a sham." The lesson would focus on the ways in which Congress — usually amid an uproar over some particularly sleazy activity — bars behavior that most people would know is wrong, law or no law. Later, when nobody´s looking, Congress backtracks. The latest example is the Stop Trading on Congressional Knowledge (STOCK) Act, which explicitly bars lawmakers and staffers from spreading or trading on inside information. The law passed in 2012 only after CBS´ 60 Minutes aired

ANN ARBOR — The University of Michigan has settled a lawsuit brought by a student libertarian club after the university spent thousands supporting leftist campus groups while denying funding to campus conservative and libertarian clubs. The university agreed to pay the U-M Young Americans for Liberty (YAL) a sum of $5,000 plus attorney fees for denying the student group funding toward an event hosted by anti-affirmative action activist Jennifer Gratz. Gratz spoke about the importance of intellectual diversity at the University last October.

Second federal judge tells IRS

A second federal judge has now ordered the IRS to explain under oath how the agency lost emails from former division director Lois Lerner, the woman at the heart of the Tea Party targeting scandal. U.S. District Court Judge Reggie Walton told Obama administration lawyers on Friday he wants to see an affidavit explaining what happened with Lerner´s hard drive. The IRS claims her computer suffered a crash in 2011 that wiped her email records at the time clean. But at a hearing examining a lawsuit against the IRS by conservative group True the Vote, Walton said he wants to

Charles C. Johnson hadn´t covered the Mississippi Senate Republican primary until it was already over. Almost a week after incumbent U.S. Sen. Thad Cochran officially staved off a primary challenge from state Sen. Chris McDaniel — results that were certified this week — Johnson exploded onto the Mississippi scene in a major way. On June 30, Johnson published a story that was viewed in conservative circles as a bombshell — and in mainstream circles as a joke. Johnson, who calls himself an independent journalist and runs a site called GotNews, was told by an African-American, self-proclaimed reverend that he was

The Secret War On Black Republicans

Why are racist attacks on black Republicans so underreported by the media? There has been much written about the racial rhetoric that has permeated political discourse since President Obama took office, and the media often highlights the racially inflammatory language used by some of his opponents. But racially charged language targeting black Republicans rarely receives much coverage, further fueling conservative suspicion of the mainstream media. Late last month, Gloreatha Scurry-Smith, a congressional candidate in Florida’s Fifth district, found that one of her campaign signs had been vandalized. Smith says she initially wasn’t surprised that one of her billboards had been defaced, but

The Centers for Disease Control tells us that in recent years there has been a jump in the percentage of young people diagnosed with Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder, commonly known as ADHD: 7.8 percent in 2003 to 9.5 percent in 2007 and to 11 percent in 2011. The reasons for the rise are multiple, and include changes in diagnostic criteria, medication treatment and more awareness of the condition. In the following post, Angela Hanscom, a pediatric occupational therapist and the founder of TimberNook, a nature-based development program designed to foster creativity and independent play outdoors in New England, suggests

An obscure human-trafficking law that passed Congress under the Bush administration with no objection is likely to be changed, much to the chagrin of refugee and immigration advocates. The Obama administration is seeking the ability to offer "voluntary removal" of undocumented children from Central America back to their home countries, which the trafficking law now prohibits. Republicans also are demanding the change as one of the conditions for approving $3.7 billion in emergency funding to deal with the surge of children on the border. This idea has raised alarm bells among immigration and refugee advocates, who say voluntary removal is often coerced

Poll: Women Evenly Split on
Hobby Lobby Decision
Breitbart Big Government, by John Nolte    Original Article
Posted By: mitzi- 7/11/2014 3:20:20 PM     Post Reply
A new Economist/YouGov poll shows that the mainstream media and Democrats are way out of step with the recent Supreme Court Hobby Lobby decision protecting the First Amendment religious rights of people, even after they commit the sin of opening a business. Though we have been assured the Court´s decision is a winning War on Women issue for Democrats just 4 months out from the midterm elections, the poll shows that in reality women are split on the issue, with only 46% disapproving of the Court decision, while 43% approve. Hot Air´s Ed Morrissey looked deeper at the poll´s crosstabs

LeBron James´s decision to return to his hometown Cleveland Cavaliers makes a "pretty powerful statement about the value of a place that you consider home," White House press secretary Josh Earnest said Friday. "The fact that he´s made this decision, I think, is a testament to the kinds of values that he has incorporated into his life and that he says that he´s interested in instilling it his children," Earnest said, adding that President Obama was a "big fan" of the NBA superstar.

Until the current border crisis, talk about Gov. Rick Perry as a serious 2016 presidential contender has generally been met with a lot of eye-rolling. Now, however, the media and voters are seeing a Rick Perry largely absent in the 2012 race — shrewd, self-possessed, competent and calm. A number of circumstances work to his benefit in this situation, providing him with his first real opportunity to re-introduce himself to non-Texas voters: He has credibility on the issue, not only because he warned the federal government about the impending crisis but because he’s spent years dealing with enforcement issues. His compassionate stance

The Clinton Foundation and the terror group Hamas share a key donor: The government of Qatar, a leading backer of terror groups that has emerged in recent years as Hamas’ chief financial lifeline. Qatar, which has been designated by the State Department as a “significant terrorist financing risk,” has pledged more than $400 million to Hamas since 2012 and has long harbored one of the terror group’s senior leaders, Khaled Mashaal. At the same time, Qatar has sought to curry favor with elite Westerners, donating between $1 million and $5 million through 2013 to the Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton

  



How 160,000 intercepted communications
led to our latest NSA story
Washington Post, by Barton Gellman    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 7/11/2014 3:08:42 PM     Post Reply
Last weekend, The Washington Post published a story I wrote with Julie Tate and Ashkan Soltani about National Security Agency surveillance that sweeps in the conversations of people who are not foreign “targets.” The story, based on 160,000 intercepted communications I received from former NSA contractor Edward Snowden, has provoked a lot of questions, objections, and, I think, misunderstandings. Some readers and commentators have described the story as an overheated statement of the obvious: that surveillance of one person includes the content of people who talk to him. Others have said The Washington Post, not the government, invaded the privacy

On July 5 Breitbart News reported Jones was receiving death threats and had become the object of a "Kill Kendall Jones" Facebook page because of photos she posted from African hunts. On July 9, Facebook removed all Jones hunting photos and later that day, after public outcry, also shut down the "Kill Kendall Jones" page. Now Dickinson wants a nude photo of Jones.

The White House is standing by a statement on its website claiming that border security is at its strongest in history even in the face of a spiraling border crisis in Texas. Under the heading “border security” on the White House website´s section on President Obama´s immigration proposal, the whitehouse.gov website gives the president credit for having "doubled the number of Border Patrol agents," saying "today border security is stronger than it ever has been." The White House says the statement is true despite the estimated 52,000 unattended children who have crossed the southwest border so far this year and the roughly

Amnesty International has revealed its pro-immigration prejudice by criticising member states of the European Union for spending hundreds of millions of euros trying to build effective border control. In a report published this week, Amnesty International complains that, "EU migration policies and border control practices are preventing refugees from accessing asylum in the EU." The report insists EU member states must "start putting people before borders." The organisation also criticises the policy by which "the EU and member states are also cooperating with and funding neighbouring countries, such as Turkey, Morocco and Libya, to create a buffer zone around the

President Obama is fond of writing off critics of so-called “global climate change” as "flat-earthers” who deny “settled science.” And it looks like the president is now taking that same dismissive tone with critics of his administration´s position on immigration reform. "We know that if we pass immigration reform, it´s not just good for the families, it´s good for the economy: We attract the best and the brightest; they invest here, they create jobs,” he said Wednesday night at a Democratic fundraiser in Austin, Texas. “It´s estimated that it would cut our deficit and the economy would grow by more
