Has President Obama bottomed out yet?
Washington Post, by Scott Clement    Original Article
Posted By: NorthernDog- 7/24/2014 1:39:30 PM     Post Reply
Barack Obama has skated from crisis to crisis this summer, from insurgents invading Iraq, an avalanche of unaccompanied minors crossing the U.S.-Mexico border, the re-ignition of Israel-Palestinian violence and another contentious standoff with Russia. But new polling finds that, despite a wave of bad news, Obama´s job approval ratings have not budged. At all. Here´s what the data show: A CNN/Opinion Research poll concluding Sunday found 42 percent approving of Obama, one point below June, May and March; 55 percent have disapproved in each of the last three polls. Gallup´s daily tracking poll released Wednesday found 42 percent approved and

Howard Stern: ´If You´re Anti-

Howard Stern says things other entertainers dare not discuss. That typically involves breast size, lesbian encounters and other titillating topics. This week, Stern said something almost unheard of in celebrity circles. If you´re anti-Israel you´re also anti-America. Stern took a caller who wondered if Stern might change his tune on Israel given the current fighting in the Middle East. Stern wasn´t having it. "Israel´s at no fault," he says. "Jews get enough s**t all over the world ... Jews are the indigenous people of that area," he says. "The Arabs don´t even want those Palestinians .. nobody wants them." The

Hey, Did I See You
Petting Another Dog?

Man´s best friend takes that BFF thing seriously. Pay too much attention to a dog other than your own and you´d better be prepared to explain yourself when you get home. If the science of animal behavior had an official curse word, it would be “anthropomorphism.” That’s just a fancy term for the sin of assigning human qualities to animals. Your dog might look happy and your cat might seem disdainful, but since you most likely think of your pet as a little person already, your judgements are automatically suspect. You see what you want to see, and that is

La Raza President and CEO Janet Murguia said it sickened her to hear Americans against illegal immigration chanting "USA! USA!" at protests around the country. Singling out the Murrieta demonstrators during her keynote address at La Raza´s annual conference in Los Angeles on Monday, Murguia accused them of having "cloaked their hatred in patriotism" by shouting "´USA! USA!´ again and again." "It made me angry," she said. "In fact, I was outraged." Murguia demanded that the estimated 11 million illegal immigrants who are currently here receive amnesty and said the road to the White House for Republicans goes through the Latino community and

Exclusive: Israel sends message

Gazans hear Khaled Mashaal speak of his luxury hotel that cost more than "a hospital and three tunnels," as Hamas news channel hacked. Tens of thousands of Gaza residents on Thursday saw Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal on their screens, but with a surprising message. The visuals were of Mashaal, but it was Israel who was speaking through his mouth. This happened during the broadcasts of Al Aqsa TV and Al Quds TV - two of the biggest television broadcasters in Gaza. In a video obtained by The Jerusalem Post, a speech by Mashaal is distorted to bring Gazans a message

Speaker Boehner: President
Obama ´AWOL´ on Border Crisis

House Speaker John Boehner accused President Obama of flip-flopping on the border crisis and of being AWOL on the issue. Boehner explained that he continues to discuss the issue with House members, but that it wasn’t helping that the White House was sending uncertain messages on changing the 2008 law. “The administration started earlier this month by signaling some openness to changes in the 2008 law to accelerate the process of returning these children to their home countries,” Boehner said. “Now the president and his team have apparently flip-flopped.” President Obama has been gone for most of the week on a series of

Fusion’s Ramos: Deporting
Minors Not American or Christian

Fusion anchor Jorge Ramos bashed proposals to deport the minors illegally crossing the border and Texas Governor Rick Perry’s plan to send National Guard troops to the southern border. In an appearance on Tuesday’s The O’Reilly Factor on the Fox News Channel, Ramos said “I don´t think any government should be in the business of deporting endangered children. That´s not the American way, that´s not the Christian way.” He agreed that the US cannot take in every child who comes from a dangerous region of the world, but also argued that “These children are not a concern for the United

Ypres, Belgium - I first started coming to the Last Post ceremony in this tiny town on the French border in the mid-1990s. There were maybe 200 people who would gather each night beneath the Menin Gate, the Reginald Blomfield-designed monument reminiscent of the Arc de Triomphe, that was dedicated in July 1927 to forever remember the almost 55,000 British and Commonwealth soldiers who died near here between 1914 to 1918 but have no known grave. "A soldier of the Great War, known unto God" is how the gravestones read in a dozen cemeteries nearby still maintained by the Commonwealth War Graves

MCALLEN, Texas--Teenagers caught illegally crossing the U.S.-Mexico border are being transported via plane to states around the nation. One such state is Massachusetts, where a foster care agency is currently seeking foster parents to take the minors in. Lutheran Social Services, located in Worcester, Massachusetts, is "the only program in the New England states that assists refugee and migrating youth exclusively." The organization seeks out individuals, couples, and families willing to foster illegal immigrant minors from Latin America. A spokeswoman from Lutheran told Breitbart Texas that foster parents receive financial

Washington – After several weeks in which the influx of tens of thousands of undocumented children illegally crossing the border into the United States has dominated the headlines, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush wrote an op-ed about the issue, calling for a change in how the children are handled after they are arrested - and also urging his fellow Republicans not to use this as an "excuse" to abandon comprehensive immigration reform. His Wall Street Journal opinion piece that published Wednesday evening is similar to the statement he released to CNN last week and is just the second time he´s

Pot growers worry wildfires will

Columbia River Cannabis in Douglas County was finally close to getting a marijuana-producer license after nine months. That is, until a 15,000-acre wildfire encroached on its farm July 10 and burned its 5-week-old medical-marijuana plants that were eventually to be used to start growing in the recreational market. The farm planned to make its first shipments to retailers by September. “We got singed real bad,” said Harold Jarboe, Columbia River Cannabis’ marketing director. Throughout Central Washington this month, marijuana producers have struggled to keep their budding businesses afloat. Amid record-setting wildfires they worked to grow and water crops, or deliver products at a

Anti-Obama street art appeared Monday night in Silicon Valley, where President Obama and Nancy Pelosi are scheduled to speak at yet another $32,000 per-couple fundraiser with California´s rich and powerful on Wednesday. In one series, titled SiliConMan, the president is pictured in a fedora, smoking a cigarette and winking. The text reads, "Leading from behind, fundraising in your face." Another series plays on the classic iPod advertisements from Silicon Valley juggernaut Apple Computers and features President Obama´s silhouette holding an NSA listening device under the mock brand name "iSnoop."Other posters see the president holding a map of Silicon Valley alongside

In Fond Memory of Don,

Don, my father-in-law, recently passed away at 82. Back in the 70s upon learning that his number one (first) daughter Mary Ann was dating me, a black guy, Don said, “If I see that guy on my street, I will shoot him.” Well, Mary and I got married anyway. Neither her family or mine attended our humble wedding in a park. After a year or two, Don saw that his daughter was happy. Over time Mary´s parents grew to accept and respect me. One could not ask for more loving and supportive in-laws. I have black friends who assume white people freely

The pen is dead. It was murdered by the finger. I first realized this last week when my girlfriend asked to borrow a pen to sign the back of one of those paper check things. “Sure,” I replied, picking up my laptop bag to rummage inside. I pulled out a succession of rectangular-shaped gadgets, but there was no pen to be found. “Hmm, maybe we have one upstairs,” I said as we both began a detective-like search for anything that resembled a vessel for ink. We scoured the home office, kitchen drawers, bedrooms, even looking through our cars. But again, no pen. After backtracking

A woman who witnesses said appeared to be in labor was prevented from crossing an LA street Wednesday afternoon because the road was closed for President Barack Obama’s motorcade. The woman was seen sitting at a bus stop bench on the south side of 3rd Street just east of Robertson Boulevard and across from Cedars Sinai Medical Center. NBC4’s Robert Kovacik shot video on his cell phone of a woman sitting at a bus stop bench and posted it to his Instagram account with the caption, "Woman in labor on bench as motorcade passes; not allowed to cross street to

A San Francisco man arrested on suspicion of posing as a police officer and coercing Central American immigrants into committing sexual acts pleaded not guilty to kidnapping and assault charges, authorities said. Jeffrey Bugai, 35, was charged with two counts of kidnapping with the intent to commit a sex-related offense, said San Francisco Assistant Dist. Atty. Alex Bastian. The charges stem from encounters Bugai allegedly had with two men, Bastian said.

Abortions down 13 percent statewide

The number of abortions in Texas decreased by about 13 percent statewide and 21 percent in the Lower Rio Grande Valley following the passage of strict abortion regulations that went into effect last November, according to a report that academic researchers released Wednesday. The study, by the Texas Policy Evaluation Project at the University of Texas, which is analyzing the effects of reproductive health-related laws passed during the last two legislative sessions, found that as the number of clinics that provide abortions declined, so did the number of abortions performed statewide. Researchers said the decline was not as large as

Prospect of GOP Senate Ignites
Plan by Schumer To Sideline the Parties

Posted By: mitzi- 7/24/2014 11:47:27 AM     Post Reply
Senator Schumer’s plan for open primaries, issued in the New York Times this week, reminds me of how I became a Republican. I’d been born and raised a Democrat and remained one until 2001, when I discovered that the candidate I wanted to vote for in the mayoral primary, Herman Badillo, was on the Republican ballot. I switched my party registration, and I’ve never looked back (at least not with regret). Mr. Schumer doesn’t want to go that route. Now that the Republicans may well win control of the Senate, he wants to change the primary system so that the

Sarah Palin endorsed underdog state Rep. Joe Carr (R) against Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) Wednesday, lauding Carr´s hard-line stance on immigration. "He’s stood up to those in his own party, fighting to enact some of the toughest illegal immigration legislation in the country and working to make Tennessee the 4th most business friendly state in the nation," Palin wrote in a statement on her Facebook page. Palin thanked Alexander for his many years of service. But she added, "Unfortunately, advocating and voting for amnesty, cash for clunkers, bailouts, raising the debt ceiling, and many controversial Obama administration nominees has marred

  



How White House Reporters
Can Reclaim Their Beat
National Journal, by Ron Fournier    Original Article
Posted By: Toledo- 7/24/2014 11:19:14 AM     Post Reply
Paul Farhi of The Washington Post writes today about a trend at the White House—and throughout journalism—that threatens the quality and credibility of news-gathering: Public-relations "minders" are injecting themselves into our interviews with politicians, CEOs, and other policymakers. Minder madness joins the surge of "background briefings" and the decline of access to decision-makers as evidence that the White House—and other big instititutions—are manipulating the press. It´s that, but it´s also something worse: It´s evidence that journalists are ceding control when they should be seizing it, accepting canned news rather than breaking it. Farhi writes, "Almost every officially sanctioned exchange between reporters and

The nationalist Svoboda party and the UDAR movement led by former boxer Vladimir Klitscho pulled out of the group of legislators that took over after former President Viktor Yanukovich was ousted by protesters seeking closer ties with

Taken in the abstract the illegal alien influx appears singular. However, if you allow yourself to elevate above the current crisis you find a parallel issue which aligns with the Obama goals for illegal alien absorption. You just have to get high enough and look beyond the current crisis horizon to see where they connect. We have already outlined how HHS UAC (Unaccompanied Alien Minor) Grants are essentially a ruse similar to ACORN.(Snip)Around the same timeframe the DACA Executive Order was implemented there was another “fundamental change” program initiated. The second program is from the Department of Housing and Urban

The National Science Foundation has committed $10 million to build robots that will act as “personal trainers” for children, in an effort to influence their behavior and eating habits. The government has spent $2.15 million so far for the five-year project, which is being led by Yale University. The project, “Robots Helping Kids,” will ultimately “deploy” robots into homes and schools to teach English as a second language, and encourage kids to exercise. The project will develop a “new breed of sophisticated ‘socially assistive’ robots,” designed to help children “learn to read, appreciate physical fitness, overcome cognitive disabilities, and perform
