Obama to hold news
conference on Wed.

Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 11/13/2012 9:50:09 AM

President Barack Obama will hold a news conference on Wednesday, his first since being re-elected to a second term. White House press secretary Jay Carney says Obama will take questions from reporters on a variety of topics in the White House East Room. The news conference will take place two days before Obama meets with congressional leaders Nov. 16 on the fiscal cliff, the combination of pending tax increases and spending cuts that could plunge the economy back into a recession. Obama has not taken questions from the White House media corps since August,

"...his first since being re-elected to a second term..."

You know, a logical, thinking person would have written the truth, such as:

"...his first since ___(insert date here)_____..."

And, AP, that date would have been ...??? (Because honestly, I´ve forgotten, but hasn´t it been over a year - closer to two years?)

Warning, plot spoiler alert.
´Today, I am happy to announce the end of coal mining in the United States. This barbaric assault on the planet we all share is being replaced by new, cleaner, technologies as we speak. As we look to a new, brighter, future, Americans will lead the world in farsighted, bold, changes. The most important thing we can do is to lower the level of personal fear in our households, so I´m proud to be the President who finally does away with the insanity of personal firearms. Starting tomorrow there will be a one month period for US citizens to turn in any firearm they have, no questions asked. They can drop them off at the nearest police station or a Citizen´s Defense Force Representative will come to their house for pickup. I will explain more about the CDF in a future news conference. No more questions, thanks for coming, God Bless´

CNN: ´´The entire country is weeping with joy over your trouncing of that evil millionare. How do you feel about that?´´

MSNBC: ´´I got so many tingles up my leg that I wet my pants. I´ll bet there was pants-wetting all across your Empire. I have no questions other than, may I kiss your hand?´´

CBS: ´´Do you think all the covering we´ve done for you on Benghazi helped your Royal re-election, Sire?´´

NBC: ´´Is there any way we can put all republicans in re-education camps so they can learn of your rightousness and enjoy the bounty of Socialism and Marxism, my Liege?´´

AP´s WH correspondent will be called on first to ask question about Obama´s plans to 2013. Second questioner will be from Reuters, who will ask about Bo the dog´s reaction to reelection. Third question, from Bloomberg News, will ask Obama to explain why he very rich should pay a bit more. 4th question will ask about the remarkable Hillary and her possible replacement. 5th question from NY Times will be on same sex marriage for all states. Final prearranged question, from CNN, will deal with the minor summit meeting in Asia that Obama is escaping to. Valerie Jarrett is providing these questions this morning.

All questions (and answers) have to be in by noon today though and will only be accepted from those who endorsed him or get a thrill up their leg. And, by the way, no questions on:
Libya, the scandal, voter fraud, the fiscal cliff, how much golf he plays, why people still don´t have help in NY / NJ, etc.
You are allowed to worship at his feet and say all praise Obama.

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

U.S. military assets in the Black Sea are on high alert amid reports Ukraine troops traded gunfire Tuesday with pro-Russian militants. A journalist with Associated Press reported intense gunfire at an airport in eastern Ukraine after the government sent in army troops to retake control from militiamen loyal to Russian President Vladimir Putin. The mayor of Kramatorsk told the Associated Press that Ukrainian troops have now occupied the military airport and are blocking its entrance. The action comes a day after the revelation a Russian fighter jetted buzzed a U.S.S. destroyer multiple times over the Black Sea.

Democrats target 30 House
Republicans on immigration

House Democrats are rolling out a new strategy to target 30 House Republicans on immigration reform during the two-week congressional recess, marking a last-ditch effort to force GOP action on a legislative overhaul. The new pressure tactic includes a memo distributed to those 30 districts held by Republicans who have expressed public support for some sort of immigration reform, many of them backing a pathway to citizenship for millions of undocumented immigrants in the United States. Democrats hope the document — which highlights statements made by those Republicans in favor of reform, as well as data showing the district-specific economic

Is Scott Walker on his way to
2016 front-runner status?
Power Line, by Paul Mirengoff    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/15/2014 2:28:49 PM     Post Reply
Scott Walker has a 16 point lead (56-40) among likely voters in his race for governor, according to a poll from Wisconsin Public Radio/St. Norbert’s. Among registered voters, his lead is essentially the same (55-40). The survey was conducted between March 24 and April 3. A Marquette University survey conducted between March 20-23 also showed Walker with a nice, though smaller, lead. In that poll, Walker outdistanced Democrat Mary Burke 48-41. Revealingly, Walker fares well in an electorate that does not seem particularly conservative and that, if anything, appears to be slightly to the left of American voters in general.

UC Irvine Should Immediately Rescind
Its Invitation to 2014 Commencement
Speaker (and War Criminal) Barack Obama
Washington Free Beacon [DC], by Andrew Stiles    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/15/2014 1:34:30 PM     Post Reply
Note: This post was inspired by the #DropDropbox campaign. On March 20 the University of California, Irvine, announced that Barack Obama will give the commence address to its class of 2014. This is deeply disturbing, and anyone—or any university—who values ethics should be concerned. Why is this? Because he was part of the failed Obama administration? Because he is a Democrat and we should hate Democrats? No. This is not an issue of partisanship. It makes sense that UC Irvine would want an accomplished, high-level, well-connected individual as their commencement speaker. There is no doubt that Barack Obama is an

When Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Steve Israel (N.Y.) was asked Sunday whether he thinks his Republican colleagues are racist, he responded with a frankness that is rare in politics and even less common when it comes to sensitive issues like race. "Not all of them, no, of course not," Israel said on CNN´s "State of the Union." "But to a significant extent, the Republican base does have elements that are animated by racism. And that´s unfortunate." Israel´s not the only high-ranking Democrat to advance some version of that argument recently. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said that Republican reluctance

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it
