Texas abuzz about possible
Perry-Cruz 2016 battle
Associated Press, by Will Weissert    Original Article

AUSTIN, Texas- Two Texans, one White House. Is the 2016 Republican campaign trail big enough? After plummeting from prime contender to political punchline three years ago, Gov. Rick Perry has spent months gearing up for a second run. And he´s turned his recent indictment on felony abuse-of-power charges into a campaign rallying cry. But even as Perry works to convince conservatives that he´ll be better at coping with the national spotlight this time, he´s increasingly bumping up against his state´s junior senator, tea party darling Ted Cruz, whose firebomb approach on Capitol Hill has grassroots activists clamoring for him to

No surprise here, but I had overlooked what Peter Wehner has extracted from the Jerusalem Post: Speaking extensively on US relations with Jerusalem since the end of the latest round of peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians last April, and throughout Operation Protective Edge, a candid [former US special envoy for Israeli-Palestinian Negotiations Martin] Indyk said at times US President Barack Obama has become “enraged” at the Israeli government, both for its actions and for its treatment of his chief diplomat, US Secretary of State John Kerry… Gaza has had “very negative impact” on US-Israel relations, he continued.

Thanks to everyone who is helping to put this research together.(Snip) [FYI tens of thousands of non commenting eyes, as well as LEO´s are also watching it assembled - All with keen interest.] The previous research threads have so much information it’s almost too difficult to digest. (Marked photos - street and aerial view of shooting location) The locations of key people within those early MSM and Social media videos are critical. They outline a very compelling and self explaining story. The physical location of Dorian Johnson, before Dorian outed himself, also clarifies much of how the construct surrounding immediate

On airstrikes, Obama channels
the words of George W. Bush
Washington Examiner (DC), by Brian Hughes    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 8/28/2014 1:11:12 PM     Post Reply
President Obama was sent to the White House on promises of being different from his predecessor. But of late, he´s sounding a lot like George W. Bush. “America does not forget. Our reach is long. We are patient. Justice will be done,” Obama said this week when discussing the threat the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria poses to U.S. citizens. The phrasing was reminiscent of Bush´s remarks after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, when he said “whether we bring our enemies to justice, or bring justice to our enemies, justice will be done." White House officials were quick

Federal judge strikes down part
of Utah’s ban on polygamy
Fox 13 [Salt Lake City], by Ben Winslow & Mark Green    Original Article

SALT LAKE CITY — A federal judge declared a portion of Utah’s polygamy ban unconstitutional late Wednesday, essentially decriminalizing polygamy in the state. U.S. District Court Judge Clark Waddoups ruled the phrase in the law “‘or cohabits with another person’ is a violation of the Free Exercise Clause of the First Amendment to the United States Constitution and is without a rational basis under the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.” The ruling comes in a lawsuit filed by reality TV polygamist Kody Brown and his wives, who left Utah fearing prosecution. They sued the state, arguing that the

A President’s Global
Warming Treaty Tyranny
Canada Free Press, by Arnold Ahlert    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 8/28/2014 1:04:10 PM     Post Reply
In yet another demonstration of contempt for the Constitution, President Obama and his administration are pursuing what the New York Times characterizes as a “sweeping international climate change agreement to compel nations to cut their planet-warming fossil fuel emissions”—absent any input from Congress. The Constitution requires a two-thirds majority approval by the Senate to ratify any legally binding treaty. The Obama administration plans to sidestep that requirement by calling the agreement a “politically binding” deal that would substitute for an actual treaty. It would consist of voluntary pledges, combined with obligations from a 1992 U.N. treaty known as the United

CA Looks To Ban

CULLMAN, Ala. — California is looking to bar the “Stars and Bars.” A bill sits on Gov. Jerry Brown’s desk to ban California from displaying or selling the Confederate flag or objects with images of it. The state’s Legislature passed the bill nearly unanimously last week. Assemblyman Isadore Hall III, D-Compton, introduced the legislation after his mother discovered the Capitol gift shop sold a replica of Confederate money that contained a picture of the flag, according to the L.A. Times. The lone dissenting vote among the 67 cast was from former California GOP gubernatorial candidate Tim Donnelly of Twin Peaks. He argued

Chuck Todd to RNC Chair: Does GOP
Have ‘Too Many Crazy White Guys?’
Mediaite, by Evan McMurry    Original Article

Following a poll obtained by Politico yesterday that showed 50% of women voters had a negative view of the Republican Party, Daily Rundown host Chuck Todd asked RNC Chair Reince Priebus if the reason the GOP couldn’t appeal to women and minority voters was that the party was infested with crazy white dudes (and their boat-shoed progeny). “When it comes to women voters, do the arguments about contraception end up putting the party on mute with those same women voters who may like your economic proposals, but say, ‘There’s just too many crazy white guys who have too many crazy

RNC to spend $100m to get out vote
Washington Examiner, by David M. Drucker    Original Article

The Republican National Committee is on track to spend more than $100 million in the midterm campaign, with virtually every dime plowed into the party’s new digital voter-turnout program. If the program is effective, Republican campaigns will have access to a modern get-out-the-vote operation that has been the hallmark of the Democrats’ success in recent election cycles. But if it fails to deliver as advertised, Republican candidates will be stuck with another subpar voter turnout program and without the resources the GOP traditionally sent to their campaigns in midterm years. The RNC is set this week to announce the deployment of yet additional

How Democrats might goad the GOP

President Obama is expected to announce by mid-September whether he will circumvent a recalcitrant Congress and press ahead with immigration reform on his own terms. "Executive action," as it´s come to be known, could be as robust and consequential as providing de-facto earned amnesty for millions of undocumented immigrants now living in the shadows. That decision would reverberate widely. Democrats have usually been afraid that if Obama decided to showcase the apogee of presidential power, the counter-reaction among conservatives and revanchists would cost Democrats an intolerably high political price. Now, though, after all the midterm primaries are done, as the cluster

Sessions blasts Dems for ‘silence’
on immigration mandate

Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) chided Democrats for their “roaring silence” over a possible executive order from President Obama on immigration policies. “As a result of this executive amnesty, millions here illegally will be able to compete for any job in America — taking jobs needed by American workers,” Sessions said on Wednesday. President Obama is considering the extension of worker visas to nearly 5 million undocumented immigrants, some of which are parents to U.S. children. Sessions said the “roaring silence” from Senate Democrats was “astounding.” Sessions said this action would harm U.S. workers by giving their jobs away to foreigners.

It´s coming: Romney for president redux
American Thinker, by Rick Moran    Original Article
Posted By: zephyrgirl- 8/28/2014 12:43:24 PM     Post Reply
The last two Republican candidates for president have been among the weakest GOP candidates in 50 years. Barack Obama presented Mitt Romney with a gift in 2012: A struggling economy, sluggish growth, a paucity of jobs, and a health care law that was extremely unpopular. In what should have been a landslide rejection of Obama´s policies, Romney flubbed it big time and allowed his opponent to define him - and Republicans - in the most unflattering way imaginable. You would have hoped that Romney would have retired from the public arena and kept a low profile as other losers have done in

The late Leo Strauss (1889-1973) was a thinker sufficiently nuanced to allow a wide range of interpretation of his views, and a teacher broad-ranging enough to influence students with divergent interests. (Snip) Not since the late Roman Empire has the problem of willful self-destruction been so relevant to contemporary events. The whole of the industrial world excepting Israel is failing to reproduce itself, and great swaths of Europe and East Asia face demographic ruin at the hundred-year horizon. The civilized world, moreover, confronts mass suicide cults in the Islamic world happy to destroy themselves if only they can take the

AFL-CIO head: Obama must

AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka said Thursday he expects President Obama will take executive action on immigration, but warned that if he doesn’t “go bold,” he risks alienating the Democratic base while invigorating Republicans. Trumka also said that workers were frustrated with the president and Democrats more broadly for failing to focus on issues important to them. The president “started off really well with focusing on income inequality” at the end of last year, Trumka said, but he “hasn’t stayed aggressive enough” on those issues — and the failure to engage there has workers turned off on the midterms.

A detailed report commissioned by two major Republican groups — including one backed by Karl Rove — paints a dismal picture for Republicans, concluding female voters view the party as “intolerant,” “lacking in compassion” and “stuck in the past.” Women are “barely receptive” to Republicans’ policies, and the party does “especially poorly” with women in the Northeast and Midwest, according to an internal Crossroads GPS and American Action Network report obtained by POLITICO. It was presented to a small number of senior aides this month on Capitol Hill, according to multiple sources. Republicans swore they’d turn around the party’s performance with

Holder Cuts Left In On $17 Billion
Bank Of America Settlement

Radical Democrat activist groups stand to collect millions from Attorney General Eric Holder’s record $17 billion deal to settle alleged mortgage abuse charges against Bank of America, Investors’ Business Daily reports: Buried in the fine print of the deal, which includes $7 billion in soft-dollar consumer relief, are a raft of political payoffs to Obama constituency groups. In effect, the government has ordered the nation’s largest bank to create a massive slush fund for Democrat special interests. The deal requires billions of dollars in debt forgiveness payments to delinquent borrowers. It also requires Bank of America to make billions in new loans

A federal judge signaled on Wednesday he may order the government to release as many as 2,000 photographs depicting the alleged harsh treatment of detainees in U.S. custody at the Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq and other sites. District Judge Alvin Hellerstein in New York ruled the U.S. Department of Defense had failed to show why releasing the photographs would endanger the lives of American soldiers and workers abroad. He also said former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta apparently had not considered each individual photograph before determining in late 2012 that all of them should remain secret. Hellerstein said he would let the

Obama’s use of executive authority
is about to become a real political issue

President Obama is weighing a big-time executive action on immigration that has both Democrats and Republicans anxious. He´s also pursuing a major international climate-change agreement without ratification by Congress. And it´s not yet clear whether the White House will seek congressional authorization for military action in Syria that appears increasingly likely. Yes, we are finally entering into what could be a very big debate about executive authority -- and with the 2014 election just weeks away. ThIS debate was supposed to happen when House Republicans sued Obama over his having delayed a portion of Obamacare unilaterally. But if he does

Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.) says he´s been meeting with White House and Homeland Security officials "for months now," and he thinks he knows how President Obama plans to bypass Congress on immigration reform: "Here is what I believe is going to happen. He (President Obama) is going to say, God, there´s over six million undocumented workers that have been here 10 years or more. And they have established roots in their community. They have American citizen wives. They have American citizen children..." Gutierrez told Fox New´s Neil Cavuto that President Obama cannot "like a magic wand," grant citizenship to those

Al Qaeda reminds the United States and the world that just because one “jayvee” terrorist group has gone varsity, doesn’t mean another one isn’t still gunning to top the table.

The Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant commonly carries out public executions in its Syrian stronghold on Fridays, forcing children to watch as victims are beheaded or shot at close range. Corpses are then displayed on crucifixes and decapitated heads exhibited on sticks for days afterwards. The gruesome details are recorded in a new report released Wednesday by a U.N.-appointed independent panel investigating the Syrian conflict, now being described as “the world’s worst humanitarian catastrophe.” Amputations, the stoning to death of women by “ISIS-sanctioned” mobs, lashings with cables, and the recruitment of children as young as 10 to fight

The New York Times tried to keep the politicized hit job against Texas Gov. Rick Perry alive in Wednesday´s edition, insisting the dubious partisan indictment (from a Democratic district attorney´s office that has filed failed charges against prominent national GOP figures) actually has merit, with a "complicated back story" and "deep roots," while pouting that Perry´s team has had "substantial success in the court of public opinion" so far. No thanks to the overexcited Times coverage. Reporter David Montgomery filed "Texas v. Perry Emerges From Years of Struggle Over Anticorruption Unit," a follow-up to his Tuesday print edition hit.
