How Real Women Can Fight

Fake ´War on Women´

Sometimes you need a trip to America to remind yourself what it is we´re fighting for. That´s what I´ve been doing in Las Vegas this last week. (One of them. You needn´t know about all the other stuff). First I´ve been at the Heartland Institute´s annual Climate Conference (lots of audio with Evil Climate Denial ScientistsTM to follow shortly; now I´m at the libertarian-leaning FreedomFest. What you realise on coming to the US is that their wars are our wars. But our angles of attack are sometimes different and we have much to learn from one another. Tactics in the

Rancher Cliven Bundy can´t win:
USA Today, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 7/14/2014 5:39:20 AM     Post Reply
Government authorities were wise to back off in April when scofflaw Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy surrounded himself with armed supporters to avoid paying more than $1 million in grazing fees and penalties he had accumulated over two decades. As infuriating as it was that Bundy had repeatedly defied court orders and insisted he could graze his cattle wherever he pleased, he wasn´t worth a bloody confrontation. Three months later, though, Americans who obey the law and pay their bills might wonder how long Bundy and his gun-toting pals are going to get away with rejecting the rule of law. It´s bad enough

What A Planned Parenthood Clinic Is Being
Sued For Is A Sickening Show Of Its Priorities
Independent Journal Review, by Kevin Boyd    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 7/14/2014 5:28:52 AM     Post Reply
In Denver, Colorado, a local Planned Parenthood clinic is being sued by a mother who is alleging that they refused to report the suspected sexual abuse of her daughter by her stepfather, Timothy David Smith. Cary Smith is alleging that Planned Parenthood performed an abortion on her then 13-year-old daughter, R.Z., who was brought there by Timothy, who was also the unborn baby’s father, and that Planned Parenthood failed to report clear signs of possible sexual abuse and returned her home with her rapist. From LifeNews: On May 3, 2012, Timothy transported his thirteen-year-old step-daughter to Planned Parenthood in Denver, Colorado, for an

Obama Had A DREAM

The White House’s explanation of why so many “children” are crossing our southern border recently is that the violence in Central America drove them here. Also, as usual, Bush is to blame: in 2008 President Bush signed a law “to prevent immigration officials from inadvertently sending [children] back to pimps and drug violence”. On July 5, the Los Angeles Times published an article by Brian Bennett. Using data obtained from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Bennett reported as follows. “The increase has been dramatic. For most of the last decade, U.S. agents apprehended fewer than 4,000 ?unaccompanied children from El

Political fallout from underage illegals may
spread far from the Rio Grande Valley
Washington Examiner [DC], by Michael Barone    Original Article

The flood of underage--and many not-so-underage--illegal immigrants from the Central American countries of Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador crested in the Rio Grande Valley, but now the waters are being diverted and channeled to other parts of the United States. Well, maybe that metaphor is a bit labored, but my point is that these young and not-so-young people are being transported to various parts of the country, to be put under the care of relatives, we are told, though it´s not so clear that the caregivers are always relatives. My former Washington Examiner colleague Joel Gehrke, now at National Review,

Protesters picket new
Hobby Lobby store in Totowa

Roughly 50 people lined up in front of Hobby Lobby’s new Totowa store Saturday to protest the company’s role in a recent Supreme Court decision that says the company can choose not to cover contraception for its employees through the Affordable Care Act. The Oklahoma City-based arts and crafts chain is owned by a Christian family that says it tries to run the business applying its religious beliefs. One of the parties in the decision by the high court, the family had argued that the Obamacare requirement that all contraception be covered violated a 1993 federal law that protects religious

Obamacare’s Biggest Legal Threat
National Review Online, by John Fund    Original Article

The legal positions of President Obama’s Justice Department have been slapped down unanimously a remarkable 13 times in the Supreme Court in the last two years. Over and over, even Obama’s own two appointees to the court — Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan — have held that the president has exceeded his authority and violated the separation of powers. This coming week, we could see the second-highest court in the land rule that the administration broke the law in enforcing a key provision of Obamacare, calling into question once again Obama’s fidelity to the Constitution — and further endangering his

  


  

‘The Massive, Poisonous Vacuum’—
25 Years After Tiananmen Square
Washington Free Beacon, by Reuben F. Johnson    Original Article

Communist regimes have long specialized in committing enormous resources and legions of secret police stooges to the airbrushing of their own histories. Persons—both living and dead—become non-persons, past events become events that never happened, certain subjects become unmentionable in any public forums and sometimes even in private conversation. This brand of enforced amnesia becomes necessary with these regimes for the simple reason that they are far more terrified of their own populations than the threats from the outside world that they are constantly handwringing about. Forbidding their people to remember what has been re-written out of the history books is always

Four-Time Deportee Arrested For
Allegedly Molesting 9-Year-Old Girl

A Mexican national who records show has been deported from the U.S. four times was arrested Saturday for allegedly fondling a 9 year-old Texas girl. According to the Parker County sheriff’s office, 35 year-old Israel Andrade allegedly broke into a Springtown, Tex. home around 6 a.m. and molested the young girl while her family was asleep, WFAA reports. Following the attack, the girl ran screaming to wake her parents. Andrade allegedly stole the family’s computer and their cell phones, forcing the girl’s mother to have to call 911 from a nearby convenience store. According to Fox DFW, footprints led police to Andrade, who was

The IRS under oath
New York Post, by Editorial    Original Article

At a recent hearing, Rep. Paul Ryan neatly summarized the problem the IRS has when he responded to Commissioner John Koskinen this way: “I don’t believe it. That’s your problem: Nobody believes you.” Now two federal judges have basically said the same thing. Last Thursday, US District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan, a Bill Clinton appointee, ordered the IRS to designate an official to explain — under oath — how it lost the Lois Lerner e-mails. The judge also asked a federal magistrate to look at other ways the court might find the IRS records. The order was followed the next day with

Irrelevant in War

Much of the reporting on the fighting between Israeli forces and those of the Hamas terrorist network describes various parts and parties as “increasingly irrelevant.” It’s a term that is generally applied well, but not widely enough. It deserves greater breadth and judgment in its application. There are those who are highly relevant, increasingly irrelevant, and entirely irrelevant. (Snip)Now, all Obama and Kerry can do is watch. They have forfeited the Israelis’ trust and can do no more than whinge from the sidelines.

Poppy cufflinks made from WW1
shells to raise cash for veterans
Daily Express [UK], by John Ingham    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 7/14/2014 4:50:19 AM     Post Reply
First World War shell casings found on the Western Front are being turned into jewellery to raise money for Britain’s veterans. The Royal British Legion is using the poppy cufflinks and lapel-pins to mark next month’s centenary of the 1914-1918 conflict. The accessories are made of solid brass from artillery shell cases found on battlefields across the Channel. An RBL spokesman said: “The design is based on a poppy plucked from No Man’s Land in 1915 by Private Len Smith. He lived until 1974 and preserved the poppy in his illustrated diary.” The RBL added making accessories from objects of

President Obama’s recent campaign-style adventures outside of the White House bubble are a chance for the president to shed the confines of his office, relishing the beer, barbecue, and face-to-face conversations with everyday Americans he wistfully describes as too inaccessible as president. But the more frequently “the bear gets loose”, as the president and top staffers jokingly refer to the unscheduled forays away from the White House grounds, the more heartburn the president causes for the Secret Service agents charged with protecting his life. Obama himself acknowledges that his impromptu walks and trips to restaurants can prove stressful for his

Pope Francis: ´About 2%´

Pope Francis has been quoted as saying that reliable data indicates that "about 2%" of clergy in the Catholic Church are paedophiles. The Pope said that abuse of children was like "leprosy" infecting the Church, according to the Italian La Repubblica newspaper. He vowed to "confront it with the severity it demands". But a Vatican spokesman said the quotes in the newspaper did not correspond to Pope Francis´s exact words. The BBC´s David Willey in Rome says there is often a studied ambiguity in Pope Francis´ off-the-cuff statements. He wants to show a more compassionate attitude towards Church teaching than

Babe Ruth’s 1918 contract sells

Babe Ruth’s 1918 contract — inked two years before he became a Yankee legend — sold for more than $1 million at a Baltimore auction. The high-end sale came one day after the 100th anniversary of the Bambino’s Major League Baseball debut on July 11, 1914 for the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park. That contract, which went for $1.02 million, was the highlight of an auction of Ruth and other baseball players’ memorabilia on Saturday night at the Sports Legends Museum in Baltimore. The Sultan of Swat, while best known for his exploits in New York, is also fondly

All Clintoned Out
PJ Media, by Victor Davis Hanson    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 7/14/2014 4:37:51 AM     Post Reply
Barack Obama did not blow apart Hillary Clinton’s huge lead during the 2008 Democratic primaries just because he was a landmark African-American candidate, new to the scene, and a skilled campaigner. Even Democrats were all Clintoned out. By such weariness, I don’t suggest that either of the Clintons is unpopular. Indeed, Americans apparently look fondly back on the high-growth 1990s as the continuation of the Reagan-Bush boom years, and a time when Democrats and Republicans finally fixed budget deficits. (Note well that when Obama went back to the Clinton-era tax rates for the more affluent, the deficit dipped, but certainly did

President Obama is a political trailblazer, but some of the precedents he’s setting are highly dubious. At the top of my list would be his habit of relentlessly berating his political opponents at the same time he’s asking for their help. Convinced that the huge recent influx of undocumented women and children from Central America requires an emergency federal response, Obama asked last week for nearly $4 billion in emergency funds from Congress. But even while making this supplemental request, Obama couldn’t resist relentlessly mocking the very House Republicans whose votes he needs. “This should not be hard,” Obama explained dismissively. “Congress

Convinced that consumers are finally ready to shop online for Picassos and choice Persian rugs in addition to car parts and Pez dispensers, Sotheby’s, the blue-chip auction house, and eBay, the Internet shopping giant, plan to announce Monday that they have formed a partnership to stream Sotheby’s sales worldwide. Starting this fall, most of Sotheby’s New York auctions will be broadcast live on a new section of eBay’s website. Eventually the auction house expects to extend the partnership, adding online-only sales and streamed auctions taking place anywhere from Hong Kong to Paris to London. The pairing would upend the rarefied

Israel crisis: Obama´s

As Palestinian terror dramatically escalates, the Obama administration is working hard – not to defeat the terrorists, but to tie Israel’s hands behind its back. Sure, there is background noise paying lip-service to an Israeli right of self-defense and babbling about a Palestinian peace partner. The reality, however, is that responsibility for the harrowing transition from the kidnap and murder of three Jewish teenagers by Hamas members to 4 million Israelis running in terror from Hamas rocket attacks leads directly to the White House. Here are the dots that need to be connected. On June 2, President Obama emboldened Hamas by

[Snip] Mr Hunt will announce that NHS trusts must take the personal details of foreign patients so they can be traced and made to pay. The hospital will get 75 percent of the cost of the treatment up-front and the same amount again when the patient pays the bill. Hospital trusts that fail to identify and bill chargeable patients will be fined. There are an estimated 260,000 non-European

  



U.S. Sees Risks in Assisting a

New York Times, by Eric Schmitt & Michael R. Gordon    Original Article

WASHINGTON — A classified military assessment of Iraq’s security forces concludes that many units are so deeply infiltrated by either Sunni extremist informants or Shiite personnel backed by Iran that any Americans assigned to advise Baghdad’s forces could face risks to their safety, according to United States officials. The report concludes that only about half of Iraq’s operational units are capable enough for American commandos to advise them if the White House decides to help roll back the advances made by Sunni militants in northern and western Iraq over the past month. Adding to the administration’s dilemma is the assessment’s conclusion that

A fresh GOP voice from the

Sacramento -Yhe San Joaquin Valley may be struggling to grow food because of the dust-bowling drought. But it´s having no trouble producing Republican leaders. OK, that´s a non sequitur. But maybe not so much. The latest Republican leader to emerge from the San Joaquin is Assemblywoman Kristin Olsen of Modesto, a conservative with an appealing moderate tone, who nevertheless has strong views about water development. She isn´t easily pigeonholed. Unlike some valley Republicans, Olsen is adamantly opposed — as are many environmentalists — to Gov. Jerry Brown´s obsessive effort to dig two massive water tunnels under the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta. The
