Secretary “Pee Wee” – John Kerry
Pictured Riding Pink Girls’ Bicycle
Last Weekend In Nantucket…

Is it really any wonder why Netanyahu and Abdel Fattah el-Sisi tell Secretary Kerry to stay out of the grown up issues? (Snip for photo)I mean seriously, is there a better representation of how effeminate and metrosexual most male liberals are? And that doesn’t even illicit the conversation about how optics of a representative international figurehead can be broadcast throughout the world. As if, someone couldn’t/wouldn’t say: “um, hey John, you might want to reconsider this before heading out in public“….. Because if you’re comfortable riding a pink girls bicycle in chinos and Jesus Adidas during an errand run, well,

Japan scientist in discredited
stem-cell research dead in suicide

A Japanese researcher at the centre of discredited research initially hailed as a potential breakthrough for stem-cell treatment killed himself after months of stress and exhaustion, officials said on Tuesday. Yoshiki Sasai was the co-author of the high-profile research that had seemed to offer hope for replacing damaged cells or even growing new human organs. He was found dead early on Tuesday at the Riken institute where he worked in Kobe, Japan, police and the institute said. "It is confirmed as a suicide," said a police spokesman. "It was a hanging." Sasai, 52, had been hospitalised in March for stress and become less receptive

WASHINGTON -- Senate and House incumbents in Kansas, Michigan and Missouri are trying to beat back challengers Tuesday in the kickoff to a busy month of primaries. Voters in Washington state consider the qualifications of a dozen candidates vying to replace a two-decade congressional Republican who is retiring. In Kansas, three-term Republican Sen. Pat Roberts faced Milton Wolf, a radiologist and the second cousin of President Barack Obama. Wolf and his tea party allies cast the 78-year-old Roberts as a longtime fixture in Washington who barely lives in the state, and Roberts didn´t help his cause when he told a radio

Report: Army two-star killed
in Afghan insider attack
Associated Press, by Rahim Faiez and Amir Shah    Original Article
Posted By: FL_Absentee_Voter- 8/5/2014 10:49:22 AM     Post Reply
An Army two-star general was killed on Tuesday when a man in an Afghan military uniform turned his weapon on western troops, the New York Times reported. Details of the attack — including the name of the major general — were not immediately available. Initial reports indicate the man also wounded 15 people, among them a German brigadier general and "about a dozen" Americans, authorities said. Tuesday’s attack at The Marshal Fahim National Defense University, a facility near Kabul, could potentially be the largest insider attack since April 2011, when an Afghan colonel killed eight airmen and one contractor.

Why Obama Is Backing His CIA Chief

The Central Intelligence Agency spied on the Senate, and CIA Director John Brennan lied about it. When the news broke, several senators, including Democrats, called for the director´s resignation. It seems unlikely Brennan can survive, but on Friday, President Barack Obama gave him a vote of confidence at his brief news conference. In fact, Obama answered a shouted-out question after having already taken the “last” question, suggesting that the Brennan situation was one of the reasons he held the briefing.1 So why would Obama want to go out of his way to publicly support a CIA director he

Gannett becomes the latest media
firm to split its print, TV assets

Gannett said Tuesday it plans to spin off USA Today and the rest of the company’s publishing assets, separating those assets from the broadcasting and digital businesses. The move to split the media company’s assets comes just a few days after E.W. Scripps Co. (SSP) unveiled a similar plan. The two companies are following a move by Twenty-First Century Fox (FOXA), which spun off News Corp (NWSA), the owner of The Wall Street Journal and other print properties, a little over a year ago, while Time Warner (TWX) recently unloaded Time Inc. (TIME), which owns People, Entertainment Weekly, Fortune and

Atticus Finch, Harper Lee’s mythic Southern liberal, wisely shot the rabid dog before it could infect Jem, Scout, Calpurnia or the other town-folks of Maycomb with a lethal disease. To Kill a Mockingbird, set in the Jim Crow Alabama of the 1950’s, remains the quintessential novel of American race relations before Reverend King and the Civil Rights movement.

Evil and plain crazy not

Given the Marxist misery the Obama regime is spreading like farmer’s manure on their way to Utopia, legions have long suspected that the Democrats own a monopoly on evil. But recent antics of their star performers Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid et al may indicate that they’re plain crazy too. Barack Hussein Obama, who has recently taken up repeating “The Bear is Loose’ during his random, royal walkabouts in lunchtime D.C., must have been thinking of Nancy Pelosi, who came on like a screeching banshee, not once but twice chasing down Republican Representative Tom Marino of Pennsylvania through the House Chamber.

Fort Lauderdale, Fla. — Eight insurance companies are raising the price of health plans and three are lowering them in Florida through the Affordable Care Act exchange, state insurance officials said Monday. (Snip) Fourteen companies, including three new insurers, are planning to sell to Floridians through healthcare.gov in 2015. Of the 11 returning plans, eight filed average rate increases ranging from 11 to 23 percent, and three filed rate decreases ranging from 5 to 12 percent. Florida Blue, the state´s largest insurer, is raising its premiums by an average of 18 percent. Humana proposed an average 14 percent increase for its

As planned, President Obama, his minions and the largely-complicit D.C. political media are using the absence of Congress to build the anticipatory drumbeat about what exactly the chief executive intends to do by himself over the boiling issue of illegal immigrants. [Snip] Aides say Obama will move at "the end of summer," an intentionally vague time-frame. Our guess is shortly after Labor Day when he can focus public attention on his moves as the Nov. 4 midterm elections approach. Narcissist or not, every president wants to control the media narrative. This is especially so for disastrous presidencies like Obama´s.

I have been waiting intently for that catalogue of much vaunted accomplishments which Islam has bequeathed both to America and the world — benefits that have been chirped about ad nauseum by Barack Obama for years. But since this, like all his other promises, has been left dangling, I have decided to compile my own list for you and take the pressure off his wearied brow that best serves America on the links. I assure you that this list is far less than exhaustive: 1. Hummus. I hate hummus. 2. Design modifications to the Twin Towers. 3. Animal husbandry (literally)

The Democrats want a smokescreen

With the frightening calamities overseas growing with menacing momentum and all the shallow and cynical talk about gridlock and impeachment here at home, it is easy to get distracted from what will really matter to voters less than 100 days from now, when they go to the polls for the 2014 midterm elections. There is no chance the economy will be strong by November, even if we see some improvements between now and then. The real questions are how weak it will still be and to what degree voters will want to send a message that they are unhappy with the

The NLRB attack on McDonald´s

Amid the economic doldrums of recent times, the fast-food industry has been one of the biggest job creators. So far this year, it has added employment at a 4 percent rate, which stands to make this the third straight year at that pace. If only the entire economy had done so well. But no good deed goes unpunished. Last week, the National Labor Relations Board decided that McDonald´s will have to play by a brand-new set of rules — and if that decision stands, it could affect a lot of other businesses in fast-food and other sectors. It´s a mistake that

Military jets have escorted a passenger plane to Manchester Airport after reports of a possible device on board. The Qatar Airways plane was escorted in to land by the Royal Air Force (RAF) following information received by the pilot. Greater Manchester Police said officers were treating it as a "full emergency" as they did not know "how genuine this threat is". Ch Supt John O´Hare said the safety of those on board was "paramount". It is understood the plane involved is an Airbus A330, which was escorted by a Typhoon from RAF Coningsby in Lincolnshire. ´Comprehensive response´ Ch Supt O´Hare said: "An incoming plane has been

ATLANTA — In the early 2000s, a young researcher at the Centers for Disease Control named Greg Millett set out to solve an epidemiological mystery. Nobody could explain why black Americans, particularly black gay men, had such high rates of HIV infection compared to the rest of the population. How were they putting themselves in so much danger? What were they doing differently from everyone else? Millett began with a survey of the published research, but that only seemed to raise more questions. Study after study seemed to arrive at the same conclusion: Black gay men take fewer risks in the

Florida Obamacare rates could rise
13 percent next year, state says

Posted By: Scottyboy- 8/5/2014 8:37:38 AM     Post Reply
Monthly premiums for the second year of Obamacare health insurance plans are expected to rise an average of 13 percent, Florida officials announced Monday. The Florida Office of Insurance Regulation has completed its analysis of recently submitted health insurance plans from 19 companies in Florida, and also estimated the 2015 federal subsidies that such families could expect. After those subsidies are applied, the monthly cost will range between $400 and 600 per family in most counties, according to the state analysis. "Even with a federal subsidy, that could mean an out-of-pocket cost of $500 or more per month to have coverage," the Florida

President Barack Obama will announce on Tuesday that U.S. businesses have committed to investing $14 billion in construction, clean energy, banking, and information technology projects across Africa, a White House official said. The announcement will occur at the U.S.-Africa Business Forum, part of a three-day Africa summit in Washington meant to showcase U.S. interest in improving trade and investment in the region. "These investments will deepen U.S. economic engagement in Africa, fueling growth that will support broader African prosperity and emerging markets for US businesses, which will support jobs in both the United States and Africa," the White House official said.

Glenn Greenwald wants to make this perfectly clear: He finds Megyn Kelly’s views “viscerally repellent.” But the crusading privacy journalist has plenty of complimentary things to say about how the Fox primetime host conducts herself on air. “She has a lower tolerance for being fed incoherent tripe from her own side than the average cable news TV host,” Greenwald said in an email. “Most Fox and MSNBC hosts treat even the most blatant idiocy with respect if it advances their party’s political agenda for the vapid cable news partisan controversy of the day.

World War I started one century ago. Wait! Don´t stop reading. For most Americans, the war is like algebra or frog anatomy — something you have to study briefly in school but then never have to think about again. Unlike World War II, with its unambiguous villains, epic battles and clear victory, World War I is a hot mess. Countries and forgotten empires declared war on each other in no small part because a bunch of aristocrats in funny clothes said they had to. Everything about World War I — from the seemingly ridiculous fighting techniques (who hasn´t watched a movie with

Why Obama Should Roll

Heads should roll at the CIA, but not for the obvious reasons. Let´s review the cacophony of issues raised by the brutal post-911 interrogation program, including the CIA´s lies, cover-ups, and a Constitution-bending spying operation against Senate staffers. 1. An exhaustive Senate Intelligence Committee investigation has determined beyond reasonable doubt that the CIA´s interrogation methods amounted to torture. The report does not recommend new punishment or further criminal inquiry, which may be an acknowledgement of the fact that CIA agents were carrying out orders of superiors, and the superiors were acting urgently, almost desperately, to protect the country from follow-up attacks. 2.

  



Going cuckoo in Cuba

Ay, caramba. Turns out, the U.S. government’s tragicomic attempts to spark revolution in Cuba were even worse than first reported. Back in April, an Associated Press exposé revealed that fools at the U.S. Agency for International Development bumbled their way into starting a half-baked Twitter-style messaging service, the goal of which was to stir up dissent and ultimately overthrow the Castro regime. The objective was laudable. The execution was laughable, in part because USAID was at the helm of what was, essentially, a job fit for the CIA. Now comes word that the same global relief agency engaged in a second knuckleheaded bit

A spokesperson for the CBP told CNSNews.com that a “family unit” for the purposes of this set of statistics is “a parent traveling with a child,” and that the 55,420 total includes all adults and children who have been apprehended and categorized as a family unit.

Tutankhamen, Richard III, Louis XVI — throughout history, the deaths of monarchs have set off wars, revolutions and writing careers. Now, the passing of the last of the imperial Ottoman Turks has led to a battle over the rent-controlled apartment of an Afghan princess on the Upper East Side. In 1945, Ertogroul Osman moved into a two-bedroom walk-up apartment on the top floor of a three-story commercial building on Lexington Avenue south of 74th Street. Though it had a handsome mansard roof at the time and a prime uptown location, the stout 34-foot-wide property was practically a hovel compared with the

Mathew D. Staver, dean of the Liberty University School of Law, said that efforts to change the definition of marriage to include same-sex “marriage” would be like trying to re-define the law of gravity, adding that, if it were tried, it would mark “the beginning of the end of Western civilization.” (snip) “We will not be able to escape the coercive nature of this issue. It is cataclysmic in its change-effect. It is, I believe, ultimately the beginning of the end of Western civilization, if we adopt this as a country.”

Senate Democrats have a number of arguments for keeping themselves in the majority: The war on women. (They believe there is one and are against it.) Impeachment. Republicans are racists. Republicans are obstructionist. Aside from being entirely made up by Democratic consultants who think Americans are dolts, these “arguments” for the Democrats’ reelection share a common feature. They are all arguments against the Republicans. But what is the argument for the continued reign of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and a Democratic majority? The Senate has not voted on jobs bills sent by the House, any “fix” for Obamacare or a
