Mark Levin Slams Obama’s Apathy:
‘World Is On Fire, And This Man

Daily Caller, by Brendan Bordelon    Original Article

Conservative radio host Mark Levin lamented what he described as President Obama’s profound indifference toward the wars raging overseas, declaring that “the world is on fire, and this man doesn’t seem to give a damn!” Levin spoke with Fox News’ Sean Hannity about Obama’s lack of engagement with the crisis in the Middle East, where ultra-violent jihadists from the Islamic State continue to terrorize and brutalize millions of people in northern Iraq and Syria. “Our enemies — the terrorists — have never had it so good under this truly pathetic commander-in-chief,” the radio host began, explaining that Obama should be

St. Louis County police will no longer be involved in the tense situation in Ferguson, Mo., that has seen days of protesting following the killing of a teenage black male by police, a congressman said Thursday. Rep. Lacy Clay (D-Mo.), whose district includes the northern St. Louis suburb, told Bloomberg News that Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon (D) will make the announcement Thursday morning. "The governor just called me and he´s on his way to St. Louis now to announce he´s taking St. Louis County police out of the situation," Clay told Bloomberg. He did not specify who would take over.

Fox News psychiatric “expert” and all-purpose pundit Keith Ablow has taken plenty of heat from reasonable adults for his remarks that First Lady Michelle Obama could stand to lose a few pounds, but some of the strongest criticism has come from his own colleagues. As we reported earlier this week, the Dr. Evil of cable news shocked his Outnumbered co-hosts by bashing Obama’s figure during a discussion of her public health initiatives. The remark drew gasps and upset comments from the four females on camera at the time, but he later doubled down, explaining that he hates “hypocrisy” and thinks

Obama to speak on
Ferguson protests, Iraq
The Hill [Washington, DC], by Justin Sink    Original Article

President Obama will make a statement Thursday at 12:15 p.m. from his vacation home in Martha´s Vineyard, addressing the violence in Ferguson, Mo. and U.S. efforts in Iraqi to push back militants from the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. The president was briefed Wednesday night by Attorney General Eric Holder and senior adviser Valerie Jarrett about the clashes between protesters and police in Ferguson, a St. Louis suburb. Overnight, more than a dozen people — including reporters for the Huffington Post and Washington Post — were arrested in the fourth consecutive day of mass protests following the shooting death

House Democrats are frustrated with what they say is a lack of election-year communication from the White House. The lawmakers say it’s difficult to defend President Obama from GOP attacks, when he doesn´t confer with his allies about his strategy and intentions. Some are scratching their heads why, after nearly six years in office and a reshuffling of his legislative affairs team, Obama´s working relationship with Congress remains prickly. “It´s hard for us to fathom; I mean, is it just lack of full staffing and resources? [Is it] professional commitment? Is it a disdain for the legislative branch? I mean,

Relations between Israel and the US are so bad now that the Obama administration has seen fit to tighten its control over wartime weapons shipments, the Wall Street Journal reported Thursday morning. According to the report, citing unnamed senior officials, the White house had requested that the Pentagon put on hold a shipment of ´Hellfire´ missiles Israel had requested and instructed them to "consult with policy makers at the White House and the State Department before approving any additional requests." According to the report, the key moment took place when the administration learned that the US had released tank and

Americans of Middle Eastern and North African descent, sometimes abbreviated as “MENA,” have a problem: they are white. In today’s world, that is a bad thing, as Pew explains: [F]or the census, since the beginning of the last century, the MENA community has been lumped into the “white” category. (snip) What’s more, some argue, being classified as “white” prohibits the MENA community from taking advantage of the benefits that come with minority status—including local, state and federal programs that give a leg up to minority-owned businesses in awarding government contracts. This brings a whole new meaning to “white flight”!

Liberals like Chris Mooney of Mother Jones agree that today’s Republican party is “environmental[ly] retrograde,” but often acknowledge it wasn’t like that a few decades ago. For example, as Mooney noted in a Tuesday post, a GOP president, Richard Nixon, established the EPA. Mooney reports, however, that in the early 1990s the party as a whole grew distinctly more hostile towards environmentalism. He touches on several possible explanations, including a backlash against the newly elected vice president, Earth in the Balance author Al Gore, as well as a theory that after the Soviet Union collapsed, environmentalists succeeded Communists as major objects

President Barack Obama was photographed getting his groove on at a Martha´s Vineyard birthday party last night at a dinner where he sat next to Hillary Clinton following her well-publicized criticism of his foreign policy. Reporters were not allowed into the private dinner celebration at the Farm Neck Golf Club, but White House spokesman Eric Schultz said afterward: ´The Obamas danced nearly every song. A good time was had by all.´ A photo of the president dancing was posted to Instagram by a fellow party goer, however it has now been deleted. The White House said approximately 150 people attended the social

A senior Israeli official confirmed to Israeli media that the US had suspended a shipment of Hellfire missiles to Israel amid worsening ties over fighting in Gaza. The decision to hold off on the transfer was most likely on grounds of increased diplomatic tension, the official said, corroborating a Wall Street Journal report earlier in the day that claimed the White House and State Department had been angered by a transfer of arms to Israel and had ordered greater oversight into future sales. The report claimed that US-Israeli tensions are at a record high, with US President Barack Obama and

This post has been updated and corrected. It´s 11 p.m. ET, hours after law enforcement officers appeared on the streets of Ferguson, Mo., in armored vehicles, hours after two reporters (including the Post´s Wesley Lowery) were arrested, and shortly after another night of unrest and tear gas unfolded on the streets of the St. Louis suburb. At 10:17 p.m., deputy White House press secretary Eric Schultz offered word from the administration, currently camped out on Martha´s Vineyard where the president is vacationing.

This week the Foreign Press Association issued a statement condemning “the blatant, incessant, forceful and unorthodox methods employed by the Hamas authorities and their representatives against visiting international journalists in Gaza over the past month.” We haven’t heard much about these methods. Alan Johnson asks a reasonable question in the Telegraph: “Hamas manipulated and intimidated the media in Gaza. Why was that kept from us?” (snip) The deeper problem, it seems to me, is the media’s uncoerced cooperation with Hamas in the public relations/propaganda war. In their willful blindness, the media have become tools of jihad, repeating old mistakes and

How Hillary Will Fail Liberals
Creators Syndicate, by Steve Chapman    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 8/14/2014 10:14:34 AM     Post Reply
Hillary Clinton has obvious attractions for liberals. She offers a solid chance of extending Democratic occupancy of the White House for four or eight years. She would realize the dream of a female president. She would appoint justices to stop the rightward drift of the Supreme Court. She would drive the tea party even crazier. Not to mention that she´s one of them. She tried to overhaul health insurance long before Obamacare. When she was a senator, the liberal blog Daily Kos gave her a lifetime rating of 94.4 (100 being the most liberal), the same as Ted Kennedy.

This far into the human story, only the historically uninstructed are startled by what they think are new permutations of evil. So, when Russia sliced Crimea off Ukraine, Secretary of State John Kerry was nonplussed: “You just don’t in the 21st century behave in 19th-century fashion by invading another country on completely trumped up pretext.” If, however, Vladimir Putin is out of step with the march of progress, where exactly on history’s inevitably ascending path (as progressives like Kerry evidently think) does Kerry, our innocent abroad, locate the Islamic State? The Islamic State uses crucifixions to express piety and decapitations to

Obama’s one achievement —
outgolfing Tiger Woods

As Barack “Eldrick” Obama approaches his 200th round of golf since his election as president, here’s a fact to put that into perspective: Since January 2009, Tiger Woods has played 269 rounds of golf. And Tiger, beleaguered by injury, is almost certainly done for the year. So that means the president, if he keeps up with his pace of play during his 15-day vacation in Martha’s Vineyard (a round a day) and his normal weekly round, will pass Tiger sometime next spring. Think about that for a minute. The president of the U.S., juggling the American economy and the entire world’s problems

Throughout 2011 and well into 2012, President Obama’s White House barred Hillary Clinton’s State Department from even talking directly to the moderate Syrian rebels. This was only one of several ways the Obama team kept the Clinton team from doing more in Syria, back before the revolution was hijacked by ISIS and spread into Iraq. The policy feud has flared up again in recent weeks, with Clinton decrying Obama’s Syria policy, Obama’s inner circle hitting back, and the president himself calling criticism of his Syria moves “horseshit.” Obama and his former secretary of state promised to patch things up at a

MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell argued Hillary Clinton would have a better working relationship than President Obama with the Israelis due to her being “uncategorically supportive” of Israel. “One of the things that was really overlooked in Hillary Clinton’s interview with Jeff Goldberg is that she disagreed with President Obama on Iran, on the Iran negotiations, and on Israel. If you read what she said about Israel, she is uncategorically supportive of Israel in ways this president is not,” Mitchell said on Morning Joe. The Obama-Netanyahu relationship has been tumultuous over the president’s time in office. On Wednesday the Wall Street Journal described a recent

Democrats face potentially catastrophic midterm elections that could leave Republicans and conservatives in control of the House, the Senate and the Supreme Court. Yet while Democrats face a political state of emergency, Hillary Clinton this week launched an aggressive preemptive attack — not against Republicans but against Barack Obama, the Democratic president she served as secretary of State, employing lines of attack eerily reminiscent of attacks against Democrats from former Vice President Dick Cheney. Clinton has been running for president for almost a decade. What is striking today is how little she appears to have thought through WHY she would run

Film studio executive Harvey Weinstein is auctioning off an internship at his company and set the “estimated value” on the position at $50,000, Gawker reports. The Weinstein Company is one of the most powerful studios in Hollywood, and securing an internship there is coveted by thousands of young people looking to break into the film industry every year. Of course, there are only a few spots open per semester, but we have great news: A Weinstein Company internship is being auctioned off for just five figures. The internship is being sold on a website called Charitybuzz, and the auction’s open

Solving a 2014 Obamacare problem
pushes premium hikes in 2015
Politico, by Brett Norman    Original Article

The Obama administration’s effort to end one political crisis during the 2014 Obamacare rollout may have sown the seeds of another controversy: potential double-digit rate hikes in 2015. If insurers have their way, some residents in politically key states like Florida, North Carolina and Iowa would face hikes of 11 percent to nearly 18 percent — far beyond the average 7.5 percent increase in proposed rates for much of the country. Major carriers there in part blame such increases on the administration’s response to the furor that erupted when millions of Americans received notice last fall that their health policies would

A 2008 report by the Congressional Research Service lists several major U.S. cities as having some of the heaviest MS-13 presence in the nation. These cities include Washington, D.C. and the surrounding area in Northern
