Bill Clinton Now Enjoys $1,000 Cigars
Weekly Standard, by Daniel Halper    Original Article
Posted By: mitzi- 8/21/2014 9:04:28 AM     Post Reply
Bill Clinton enjoys a Gurkha cigar, "the Rolls Royce of the cigar industry." He "loves the Gurkhas," Gurkha chief executive officer Kaizad Hansotia, maker of the HMR cigar, which stands for His Majesty´s Reserve. It is, according to Hansotia, "the world´s most expensive cigar." One box is $25,000 -- and the price will rise next year to $30,000. "The cigars are close to $1,000 each," says the cigar boss to Bloomberg. "People try to copy us a lot, but we have no competition," says Hansotia. "We tell everybody, please smoke a Cuban cigar. And then smoke our cigars. And once

Cheney: Obama Would ´Rather Be On The

Former U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney strongly criticized President Barack Obama on Wednesday night for going golfing immediately after delivering a statement on the beheading of American journalist James Foley. "Every day we find new evidence that he’d rather be on the golf course than he would be dealing with a crisis that’s developing rapidly in the Middle East," Cheney declared during an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity. Earlier in the day, Obama took a break from his vacation in Martha´s Vineyard to give an angry and emotional speech condemning the jihadist group ISIS and praising Foley´s career

Chris Christie, Scott Walker and Rick Perry are all positioning themselves to enter the 2016 presidential race as top-tier candidates for the Republican nomination. But before concerning themselves in earnest with becoming the next GOP standard-bearer, these three governors must contend with a shared, and unpleasant, distinction: Each man, or his administration, faces accusations of legal wrongdoing. For months, Christie has been trying to move beyond investigations into a decision by members of his administration to close traffic lanes on the George Washington Bridge last September in an apparent act of political revenge. Meanwhile, Walker has faced down an inquiry

Loss for Democrats in Midterm Elections
Could Be Boon for Clinton
New York Times, by John Harwood    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 8/21/2014 8:42:51 AM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON — President Obama’s international woes give his former secretary of state good reason to seek political distance. Hillary Rodham Clinton’s recent foreign policy criticisms made that clear. Domestically, their interests diverge in a different way. A Republican takeover of the Senate this fall would hurt Mr. Obama for the final two years of his presidency, but it might help Mrs. Clinton if she runs to succeed him. Republican control of both the House and Senate would provide Mrs. Clinton a clearer target to run against in courting voters fatigued by Washington dysfunction. The longer an unpopular president and his more-unpopular partisan

To the four clean-cut college freshman out on a double date, it had seemed like a typical McDonald´s (snip) Before them, hundreds of young black males were loitering about, some without shirts. Other local residents -- the more cynical and world-weary, both whites and most blacks -- would have taken one look at the crowd and driven off, dismissing many of the young and posturing black males as thugs. But not them: innocent white kids from the suburbs. They presumed this was post-racial America -- and that they were in an easy-going college town. Twenty minutes later, two of them

Accused serial killer says Livingston teen´s

WEST ORANGE — The man accused of gunning down a Livingston teenager in his car earlier this summer told investigators the murder was an act of retribution for U.S. military action against Muslims in the Middle East. According to court documents filed Wednesday in Washington state, where he is accused of killing three other men, Ali Muhammad Brown said he considered it his mission to murder 19-year-old Brendan Tevlin as an act of “vengeance” for innocent lives lost in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria and Iran.

Father of Hadar Goldin: ´I Knew

Simcha Goldin, father of fallen soldier Second Lieutenant Hadar Goldin, has responded to news that one of the senior Hamas terrorists eliminated in an early-morning airstrike in Gaza was responsible for the attack which killed his son. Raed al-Attar was killed along with Mohammed Abu Shamalah and Mohammed Barhum in the pre-dawn IAF strike, representing a serious blow to Hamas´s military command in southern Gaza. Attar is believed to have coordinated an attack against IDF forces in Fatah on August 1, breaching a 24-hour humanitarian ceasefire, in which two soldiers were killed and Hadar was abducted. Goldin was declared dead

Let me me begin by acknowledging that this inspirational title is lifted from a tweet by screen actor James Woods. And now I will explicate his tweet. Every sentient human being whose brain isn’t stuffed with ideological fairy dust can see that Obama is behind every major scandal of his administration from Benghazi to the I.R.S. disgrace. How can one know this? Because the culprits haven’t been fired. Moreover, if they are serial liars like Susan Rice, they’ve actually been promoted to posts where their loyalty to the criminal-in-chief can do America and its citizens even more damage, if that is

KABUL, Afghanistan — The attorney general of Afghanistan on Wednesday ordered the expulsion of an American correspondent for The New York Times, Matthew Rosenberg, and barred him from re-entering the country. The action, the first public expulsion of a Western journalist since the Taliban regime, came less than a day after the office of the attorney general, Mohammad Ishaq Aloko, issued an order prohibiting Mr. Rosenberg from leaving the country while he was under investigation. Both orders related to an article written by Mr. Rosenberg that was published Tuesday by The Times. It said that high-ranking government officials were discussing

Barack Obama is discovering--rather belatedly--precisely what is involved in being president of the United States. [Snip] He now has a full-blown, world-threatening foreign crisis in which the decisions that he makes from one minute to the next might result in immediate mass slaughter, a prolonged war or a gradual de-escalation of the conflict--or possibly all three in progressive stages. At the same moment, bizarrely, he is facing a domestic upheaval of staggering proportions: the return of riots and racially based violence in the urban streets of a kind which his very election as president was supposed to have made a

Darren Wilson, the Ferguson, Mo., police officer whose fatal shooting of Michael Brown touched off more than a week of demonstrations, suffered severe facial injuries, including an orbital (eye socket) fracture, and was nearly beaten unconscious by Brown moments before firing his gun, a source close to the department´s top brass told FoxNews.com. “The Assistant (Police) Chief took him to the hospital, his face all swollen on one side,” said the insider. “He was beaten very severely.” According to the well-placed source, Wilson was coming off another case in the neighborhood on Aug. 9 when he ordered Michael Brown and

Do you know where your donations go? Not to candidates, if you give to these five Tea Party organizations. It’s a scenario that has become all too familiar. You’re frustrated with the gridlock in D.C. You’re sickened by the burgeoning national debt. You think the country has gone to “hell in a handbasket” under the current administration and party leadership. And then you get a direct mail piece, or an email, or see an ad on the web that promises change by supporting candidates who embrace your ideals. Hopeful and excited to learn that there are organizations willing to fight for what you

The fanatic who beheaded an American journalist was last night named as one of a gang of British jihadis known as ‘The Beatles’. As a massive manhunt was launched, a former hostage said he believed the masked Islamic State maniac was a Londoner he had known as ‘John’. The security services are also close to establishing the identity of the killer who cut James Foley’s throat in a horrific propaganda video. Said to be a senior Islamic State operative, he was trusted earlier this year to negotiate a hostage exchange. As David Cameron broke off his holiday to deal with the crisis, further evidence

The armed wing of Hamas announced Thursday that three of its senior commanders were killed in a pre-dawn Israeli air strike in Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip. Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades in a statement identified the leaders as Mohammed Abu Shamalah, Raed al-Atar and Mohammed Barhum. Emergency services spokesman Ashraf al-Qudra said eight people were killed in the strike. Witnesses said a four-storey family home was completely destroyed in a series of air strikes. The airstrike was carried out based on intelligence provided by the Shabak (Israel Security Agency), which led to the identification of two central Hamas figures.

President Barack Obama reacted to the on-camera slaying of photojournalist James Foley for five minutes on Wednesday, telling a global audience that ´when people harm Americans, anywhere, we do what’s necessary to see that justice is done.´ Minutes later he began a five-hour round at Farm Neck Golf Course on Martha´s Vineyard for his seventh visit to the links, so far, during a vacation that began August 9. The decision brought a chorus of condemnation from TV commentators, journalists, conservative partisans and Twitter denizens – and even an unintentional slap from the left-leaning New York Times.

It was late in the afternoon on a warm Friday in early fall and Doug Sumrell was mowing the lawn outside his suburban home in Evans, Georgia. As he pushed the mower across the yard, Sumrell began to feel faint — his chest tightened and the back of his neck started throbbing — so he went inside to take a break and drink a glass of water. But each time he went outside to finish the job, the feeling came back. He drove himself to the hospital as the sun was setting. On the way there, he left a message

Why I Sued the President

President Obama has dared those who criticize his repeated failure to faithfully execute the laws to “sue me,” believing that no one can show the injury needed to do so. But when one of the administration’s many lawless actions shifted certain responsibilities to the states, we gained the standing to sue that so many others have lacked. So on July 29, I accepted the president’s invitation and filed a lawsuit on behalf of the state of West Virginia to hold the Obama administration accountable for its illegal conduct. Though we are a small state — with approximately 1.8 million people

WASHINGTON — Sarah Palin has lost the magic. The defeat of her choice Tuesday in a Republican Senate primary in her home state of Alaska capped a primary season in which her favored candidates have stumbled across the nation. A referendum to restore Palin’s signature achievement from her time as Alaska governor, a state tax on oil companies, was also headed toward defeat following Tuesday’s voting, dealing a double whammy loss to Palin in her home state and highlighting her declining influence. Only four of the 15 congressional candidates endorsed by Palin nationwide this year have won their primaries, a far worse

Narcissist President Barack Obama lectured ISIS today on how to practice their religion of Islam. Obama says ISIS speaks for no religion. He obviously doesn’t follow their tweets. From the White House website: Jim Foley’s life stands in stark contrast to his killers. Let’s be clear about ISIL. They have rampaged across cities and villages — killing innocent, unarmed civilians in cowardly acts of violence. They abduct women and children, and subject them to torture and rape and slavery. They have murdered Muslims — both Sunni and Shia — by the thousands. They target Christians and religious minorities, driving them from their

This is what journalists have been saying privately about the violence in Ferguson: What if we all just went home? What if we turned off the cameras? Would the protestors disappear—especially all the out-of-town agitators who have descended on the Missouri town just to make trouble? The answer is, probably, yes—and yet that can’t and won’t happen. I’m not suggesting for a second that the killing of Michael Brown and the eruption of anger and violence in Ferguson isn’t a hugely important story. But we all know how the massive media machine, once it clanks into action, changes the very thing on which

Let’s face it. This is a question that most people have never asked, but sometimes the best reads are answers to questions you never thought to ask. Liaquat Ahamed, author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning Lords of Finance, answers this question with style and insight in a new book, On Tour with the IMF. Mr. Ahamed essentially embedded with the IMF staff and offers a snapshot — not a reporter’s tick-tock nor an economist’s critique of IMF missteps but more of an anthropological account – of what he saw on stage and off at the International Monetary Fund’s Washington headquarters (“a

Americans can only pray that President Obama was as serious as a drone strike when he vowed the United States would “see that justice is done” for the beheading of American journalist James Foley. While his anger was palpable, Obama’s resolve to rain death on the savages of ISIS was far from clear. Worse, he signaled disdain for the gravity of the moment by going from the presidential podium straight to a vacation round of golf. The country deserved better from its reluctant-warrior commander in chief. So, too, Foley’s family. So, too, the family of Steven Sotloff, a second American journalist held

The Constitution lives. Even as the news is brutal — it instructs for those willing to pay attention. American journalist James Foley has been beheaded by ISIS. And an American teenager named Michael Brown was shot dead by a Ferguson, Missouri police officer named Darren Wilson. In the case of Michael Brown, Ferguson, Missouri remains in an uproar. The town is awash in protesters, both from Ferguson and outsiders. There has been a steady diet of rioting and looting. The President of the United States is involved. The Attorney General of the United States is involved, going to Ferguson personally just yesterday.

When the book is closed on the Middle Eastern caliphate established this summer by the ISIS terrorist group, historians may view Aug. 19, 2014, as the turning point in this monster’s existence. That was the day ISIS disseminated its video of the beheading of American photojournalist James Foley. Foley had spent years as a freelancer, bravely documenting wars for Western audiences. He was kidnapped by loyalist forces during the Libyan civil war and lived to tell the tale. Sadly, he fell into the merciless hands of ISIS, the self-styled “knights of Islam,” two years ago in Syria.

Did you know that radio host Alex Jones has revealed that the U.S. military has “plans to subdue and kill Americans in civil disobedience protests?” Did you miss this important revelation? The claim is said to be based on a 132-page Army document titled, “U.S. Army Techniques Publication 3-39.33: Civil Disturbances.” A reader sent an Alex Jones Infowars.com story about this document to me, saying, “Good editors will assign a reporter to this story.

The Endangered Species Act has wreaked havoc for decades on rural communities, but a newly filed lawsuit could force San Francisco urbanites like House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi to share their pain. A federal complaint filed this week contends that the Hetch Hetchy Project, which supplies water to San Francisco and the Bay Area, has unfairly enjoyed an exemption from the “severe cutbacks” required in rural California in order to save endangered fish species.Craig Manson, who heads the Center for Environmental Science, Accuracy and Reliability (CESAR) in Fresno, said the lawsuit is aimed at addressing the “double standard” that forces farmers
