Rick Perry has assembled
an all-star legal team
Washington Post, by Sean Sullivan    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 8/27/2014 12:24:48 PM     Post Reply
In case you haven´t heard, Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) is facing felony charges alleging he abused his powers and tried to coerce an elected official to resign. Perry insists he isn´t guilty. And he´s hired an all-star legal team to make that case for him in court. Here´s a quick look at the lineup: Steve Schmidt: Schmidt is the latest addition to Perry´s team. A veteran Republican strategist best known for his role as a senior adviser on Sen. John McCain´s 2008 presidential campaign, he was portrayed by Woody Harrelson in the HBO film "Game Change." Ben Ginsberg: Ginsberg is a longtime

Marco Rubio´s course
correction on immigration
Washington Examiner, by Byron York    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 8/27/2014 12:11:25 PM     Post Reply
Marco Rubio´s office got in touch this week to say the Florida senator and possible 2016 GOP presidential hopeful wanted to discuss immigration. The specific subject was President Obama´s expected move to unilaterally legalize as many as half of the 11 million immigrants currently in the United States illegally. But Rubio, speaking by phone during a visit to Atlanta, had much more to say about the broader issue of immigration reform. What he outlined amounted to an entirely new approach to the issue that has contributed to his rise, then fall, and perhaps rise again, in the Republican Party. Rubio

ESPN says it regrets Michael Sam
shower report that drew criticism

After it found itself at the epicenter of a storm of criticism over a report on the shower habits of Michael Sam, the first openly gay player on an NFL roster, and his teammates, ESPN responded Wednesday morning with a further statement on the report. “ESPN regrets the manner in which we presented our report. Clearly yesterday we collectively failed to meet the standards we have set in reporting on LGBT-related topics in sports.” On Tuesday, while providing an update about Sam’s quest to make the St. Louis Rams’ final roster, reporter Josina Anderson said that a Rams “defensive player told me

More than a dozen civil rights groups, faith leaders and activists plan to meet outside the White House Thursday to deliver a petition demanding that the Justice Department hold accountable all police officers involved in the fatal shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo. The groups, which include ColorofChange.org, Organization for Black Struggle, CREDO, MomsRising, MoveOn.org, among others, say they have gathered 900,000 signatures for a petition calling on President Obama and U.S. Attorney Eric Holder to fully investigate, prosecute and eventually fire all members of the police force that played a role in Brown’s killing. The groups created the petition

´Sopranos´ Creator Finally Reveals
Whether or Not Tony Soprano Died

One of the most controversial finales in television history aired way back on June 10, 2007. When The Sopranos director David Chase cut to black as Tony Soprano was eating dinner with his family in a New Jersey diner, thousands of confused people nationwide called their cable companies to complain that their HBO service went out. Others were just like, “Huh? What happened to Tony?” Chase’s refusal to definitively spell out Tony’s fate has been met largely by anger and outrage from viewers but, on the other hand, the lack of confirmation has also led to some incredibly detailed analysis

Obama’s new power grab: A climate
change treaty without Senate ratification
Hot Line, by Allahpundit    Original Article

It’s not a “new” treaty, apparently, if they’re rewriting an old treaty that’s already been ratified. Maybe that’s a sneak peek of Obama’s Syria policy too. Instead of asking for a new AUMF against ISIS, he could issue an “addendum” or whatever to the 2001 AUMF against Al Qaeda. Come to think of it, that’s his approach on immigration too. The mega-amnesty he’s getting ready to uncork isn’t being presented as new policy, even though it would legalize five million people or more. It’s being presented as a discretionary application of law that’s already on the books. Turns out every

The Left’s Ridiculous
Burger King Freakout

Burger King plans to merge with Canuck coffee-and-doughnut chain Tim Hortons and base the company’s headquarters in Canada where it will enjoy the kind of reasonable corporate tax structure that Democrats continue to obstruct here in the United States. And the move has provoked a fresh round of moral panic, faux patriotism and confusion. (Snip for graphic) It’s doubtful there will be much of a real backlash despite much wishful thinking. Most obviously, the majority of fast food customers are probably less inclined than the editors of the New Republic or the petitioners of MoveOn.org to mistake high tax rates

Leading U.S. officials now believe that America has to expand its air war against ISIS into Syria, but nobody knows yet how we can do it… or what will happen next. President Obama wants to decide by the end of the week whether or not his war in Iraq against the Islamic State will expand to the group’s haven in eastern Syria. But nearly everything about the potential military campaign is still in flux, administration officials tell The Daily Beast—from the goals of the effort to the intelligence needed to carry it out.

On Tuesday, ESPN did a segment on Michael Sam´s showering habits. Seriously. Hours before NFL teams have to cut down their rosters to 75 players, ESPN´s Josina Anderson reported from Rams camp that a "Rams defensive player told me that ´Sam is respecting our space.´ From his perspective, he seems to think that Michael Sam is waiting to kind of take a shower, so as not to make his teammates feel uncomfortable.” According to TheBigLead, ESPN´s Anderson added that defensive tackle Kendall Langford said he has not yet been in the shower with Sam, saying that “there definitely could be a million reasons

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.— Former Republican Gov. Charlie Crist continued his political comeback Tuesday as Democratic voters selected him as their nominee to challenge Republican Gov. Rick Scott in Florida, one of four states where voters were choosing candidates for statewide office. Crist easily defeated former state Sen. Nan Rich, while Scott coasted in his own primary toward a general election matching the state’s last two Republican governors. Both have struggled with sagging approval ratings and run-ins with conservatives. “It’s a wonderful night,” Crist declared after accepting a concession call from Rich. Crist said the strong showing is a sign that Democrats

SACRAMENTO, California -- Roughly 300 demonstrators gathered outside the Leland Stanford Mansion Musuem on Tuesday to protest against Mexico´s continued incarceration of U.S. Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi, who is facing trial on gun charges. Inside the building, Gov. Jerry Brown was hosting Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto at a luncheon in his honor, which was the target of the demonstrations. Two Republicans, State Assemblyman Tim Donnelly (San Bernadino) and State Senator Joel Anderson (R-Alpine), declined to attend the luncheon. Donnelly organized the protest outside the luncheon and was joined by activists from the Tea Party, as well as others concerned

Saudi Arabia’s Foreign Minister said that now is the time to recognize Israel as a legitimate entity in the Middle East, stressing that the Palestinian arm of the Muslim Brotherhood, terror group Hamas, is responsible for fanning the flames of war between Israelis and Palestinians. Speaking at the world assembly of Islamic scholars in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, Saud bin Faisal Al Saud reiterated that the Arab world must also reject Hamas as the representatives of the Palestinian movement, AWDnews reports. Saudi media has consistently been against Hamas in the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas, according to the Middle East

The Obama administration is reportedly attempting to bypass congressional ratification for an international move called a "sweeping international climate change agreement." According to The New York Times, Obama is preparing to hammer out this climate change agreement to "compel nations to cut their planet-warming fossil fuel emissions" ahead of a 2015 UN summit meeting in Paris. Calling it a "politically binding" agreement, Obama is reportedly working with foreign operatives to create a "name and shame" program that would pressure nations into conforming to the new global warming limits. But such an agreement would not normally have any force of law

NBC News senior political editor Mark Murray believes President Barack Obama is thrilled to back at the White House from his Martha´s Vineyard vacation and not on the golf course. Murray told MSNBC´s Tamron Hall on Monday that when "you are on vacation, you hope it lasts forever, and you kinda don´t want to get back to work the next day." He said that was not the case for Obama. "I think the opposite is true for President Obama, where he´s probably glad to be back right at work and didn´t want that vacation to linger anymore, just because there was just

Capitol Hill insiders widely consider President Obama´s rumored plan to unilaterally extend amnesty to as many as five million of illegal aliens to be political suicide, essentially ceding control of the Senate in a single act. But a key question has been whether elite Republicans are willing to deploy the issue in weaponized form. A statement from Brad Dayspring, spokesman for the National Republican Senatorial Committee, suggests the answer is yes. “Executive amnesty would not only subvert the law, but depress wages, and hurt the poorest Americans most of all – including legal immigrants looking to rise into the middle

Export-Import Bank faces rocky
path to renewal as Congress returns

Congress will barely be in session in the 10 weeks before Election Day, and it will do very little legislating. One of the issues it does have to resolve, though, is what to do with the Export-Import Bank. Ex-Im is a federal agency that subsidizes U.S. exporters, giving taxpayer-backed financing to foreign companies and governments. Conservatives are giving this agency a hard time, and House leaders show no desire to take up a bill reauthorizing Ex-Im. But government-shutdown politics complicates things. Here´s the lay of the land: Democrats, for all their populist rhetoric and barbs at Big Business, are nearly

Chuck Todd’s surprise guest on the Daily Rundown Wednesday morning was none other than Senator John McCain (R-AZ), who’s appeared on Meet the Press sixty-nine times, more than any other guest. McCain, in affable mode rather than his normal Sunday cranky war hawk setting, advised Todd on reviving the iconic show, which fell in the ratings from first to third under David Gregory’s tenure. “I think it has been not just the oldest, but the premier Sunday encounter that the American people can have with leading figures in the political world,” McCain said. “I would suggest that rather than try to

He lost more than half his body weight — and now the Rev. Al Sharpton is a fat shamer! The civil-rights leader and host of MSNBC’s “Politics Nation” regularly pokes fun at his fat followers and friends, The Smoking Gun reports after examining comments he’s made before his organization, the National Action Network. “Every fine girl is two big Whoppers away from being obese,” he said after meeting an old high-school crush who had ballooned to almost 300 pounds.

Paris - IMF chief Christine Lagarde, one of the world´s most powerful women, announced Wednesday she had been charged with "negligence" over a multi-million-euro graft case relating to her time as French finance minister. The shock announcement came a day after she was grilled for more than 15 hours by a special court in Paris that probes ministerial misconduct, the fourth time she has been questioned in a case that has long weighed upon her position as managing director of the International Monetary Fund.

When CNN first broadcast the unverified audio of the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO, it was with all the sturm and drang of breathless breaking news. The audio led almost every hour and was the biggest story of the day. What a difference a day makes.

"Do you think it´s authentic?", she squeaked to two law enforcement experts, both of whom believe it is a hoax: (snip) Even if the audio ends up being authentic, the fact that CNN is now concerned over

ROTHERHAM, England — Members of Britain´s Pakistani community reacted with outrage Wednesday amid reports that officials failed to act on sex abuse cases because of concerns about racism in the northern English town of Rotherham. Muhbeen Hussain, founder of Rotherham Muslim Youth Group, told the Daily Mirror on Wednesday that Muslims are disgusted that justice was not done — leading to some 1,400 children being sexually exploited over a 16-year period, mostly by Pakistani men.

President Obama is enduring an awful summer of domestic troubles, foreign tragedies and a lost national narrative that´s put him on the defensive. He´ll try to recapture control of the country´s political dialogue next month by igniting an emotional controversy over legalizing illegal aliens. But Tuesday the Democrat was in Charlotte to describe to American Legion members an exotic foreign land where November voters should be delighted to keep his party members in office.

I recently read an article entitled “What Black Parents Tell Their Sons About the Police” and I began to ponder the downward spiral in race relations over the past five years. According to the author Jazmine Hughes: “Such is the burden of black parenting. Being a black parent, especially of a black boy, comes with the added onus of having to protect your child from a country that is out to get him -- a country that kills someone that looks like him every 28 hours, a country that will likely imprison him by his mid-thirties if he doesn´t get his
