The´re trying to ´Palinize´ Marco Rubio
Daily Caller, by Matt K. Lewis

Original Article

Posted By:Fiesta del sol, 11/21/2012 12:14:58 PM

On Twitter yesterday, some of my conservative friends beat me up for writing about Marco Rubio’s comments to GQ about the Earth’s age. Their point was that it was a silly question (it was.) And that it was feeding a liberal meme (it is.) But the notion that this means we should ignore it is also silly.(snip)And so, this is a strategy. Like Sarah Palin in 2008, Democrats view Marco Rubio as a major threat — not just for one or two elections — but someone who could undermine their advantage

Comments:
And just like Palin, Morning Joe is Ground Zero for this strategy.

The Left isn´t our main problem when it comes to their tactics. Our problem is those "on our side" who aid and abet the Left in their objective, by joining in the potshots instead of "circling the wagons".

As we saw from the coordinated and systematic distruction of laudable conservative candidates during this years´s primary, it is instructive to define who THEY are. Examine who isn´t being vilified or whispered about and then ask cui bono?

One who wishes to be president must be adroit. There is no reason for anyone to participate in wide-ranging interviews with media known to be antithetical to one´s beliefs and hope to get through the minefield unscathed.

For all her talent, Sarah Palin was not adoit. Trying to be too cool, Rubio has fallen into the same trap.

We need someone who has many attributes. Adroitness at avoiding this kind of stuff, which would be obvious to almost any LDotter, is essential.

Well of course they are going to try to destroy Rubio. Duh? Him and anyone else who raises a profile. Maybe the only one who won´t get demonized right now is John Huntsman. But wait . . . . he´s a democrats democrat anyway. It´s time the GOP started demonizing some democrats as well. If I had the deep pockets, I would investigate every democrat with a profile and drag all of their dirt out and air it.

Hopefully Senator Rubio has learned his lesson. There is nothing..nothing at all...to be gained by giving an interiview to someone from GQ or other such magazines.

Marco...they do not like you. You are a conservative. They hate you and are already trying to take you down.

You have to be more streetwise.

#4 While I agree with your strategy regarding the Democrats, how would you make the Kneepad Media air any dirt you´d come up with? As they´ve proven is the past election, they still control the flow of information to the stupid, the main Democrat constituency. I´ll watch with interest to see which of the Palin haters here pick up the media´s narrative on Rubio. I´m convinced it will be many of those we´re already familiar with.

The standard reply to questions like, "How old do you think the Earth is?" should be:

Who gives a crap?

It would be so refreshing that no one wouldn´t love it. Attack thwarted.

Anyone who knows anything about being `cool` knows it is not something you try to be. You either are or aren`t. It starts from childhood on up. Any attempt by a republican to try an act cool will backfire miserably. If Rubio could rip off some Eddie Van Halen riffs on Jay Leno he might get half way there but he`ll never look or sound cool.

I don`t see any republican today who could defeat even the worst democrat. They have perfected the winning strategy, which includes voter fraud an all the right judges in the right places at the right time. They know they`ll never be challenged by the `uncool` GOP.

The one thing that conservative candidates needs to remember is that the left does not view them as stupid, but, instead as evil. By liberal definition, therefore, nothing that an evil person does can be good. The only way that you will get a liberal to like you is to become a liberal. Period. End of discussion. Full stop.

Coming from Palin basher Lewis, no less.

Sometimes I think our media has descended to an endless loop of the opening scenes of the movie Heathers. A cruel, vicious, spiteful immature clique has taken it upon themselves to define who and what is acceptable and unacceptable in politics for both parties.

The answer to the question "How old is the Earth?" is "Is G-d infinite or not?" If G-d is infinite then G-d can squeeze 4.5 billion years of time into one/4.5 billionth of a billionth of a billionth of a second.
Or: "If it is true that nothing can come from nothing, tell me where the material for the universe came from."

Earth´s age:

Don´t matter as long as it catches me when I fall.

Don´t matter as long as it hurts you when you fall.

Don´t matter as long as it grows food.

Don´t matter as long as it sticks to you on rainy days.

Don´t matter as long as don´t move when I walk.

Yada Yada Blah etc.

Sorry, but Marco is a clone of Jeb. Sad if he is the best we have to offer.

Don´t worry - - don´t worry at all.

If his critics start getting tough with him - - "Azucar" Rubio will send his Big Sugar Lobby thugs after them. His critics will all develop diabetes from the massive amounts of taxpayer-subsidized sugar - - and "Azucar" will keep buzzing along on his sugar high.

´X-Men´ director accused of

New York Post, by Joe Tacopino    Original Article

A new lawsuit alleges that “X-Men” director Bryan Singer sexually abused an underage boy at a lurid California sex party. The bombshell suit claims the director of blockbuster hits like “Superman Returns” used his position in Hollywood to exploit young men by taking part in a sex ring. The lawsuit, filed by attorney Jeff Herman, charges that Singer attended parties at a mansion in Encino, California where adult males did drugs and had sex with teenage boys.The teen mentioned in the suit never consented to sexual relations with Singer and often persisted, it states, according to a press release from Herman’s

An 89-year-old Navajo woman wants the land she´s lived on all her life to be left to her family once she dies. But here´s the catch; she lives inside a national park, and age-old conflicts between the family and the National Parks Service may prevent that from happening. Stella Peshlakai Smith, who barely speaks any English, was born in what is now the Wupatki National Monument north of Flagstaff in 1924, a month before the land became part of a national park. Her daughter, Helen Peshlakai Davis, says it´s home to her. "There´s no other place that I want to call

The TCM (Turner Classic Movies) cable channel celebrated its twentieth anniversary yesterday. It did so in grand style, rebroadcasting movies from its first day on the air (Gone With the Wind and It Happened One Night). After GWTW, TCM broadcast an interesting interview with host-for-life Robert Osborne conducted by Alec Baldwin. I have been a high volume consumer of TCF roughly since day one. I am a little vague on Ted Turner’s acquisition of the rights to just about every worthwhile movie ever made, but with TCM, he is putting them to good — even ingenious — use. The films

Accused O.C. killers likely
wore GPS devices during
slayings, police say
Los Angeles Times, by Paloma Esquivel and Adolfo Flores    Original Article
Posted By: Fiesta del sol- 4/15/2014 6:47:32 AM     Post Reply
Authorities said Monday that a pair of sex offenders suspected of raping and murdering at least four women probably wore their court-ordered GPS devices during the crimes. Franc Cano, 27, and Steven Dean Gordon, 45, had been required to wear the devices after serving time in prison for sexually assaulting a child under the age of 14. Police on Monday also said that they are now “confident” that there is a fifth victim -- and perhaps more -- in a string of slayings that has been tied to a pair of registered sex offenders. The men were formally Monday charged

Some time back, whenever a big racial controversy erupted, I trained myself into the habit of reading about it at FoxNews.com, just for the unbelievable comment threads. Let’s put it this way: If my friends and I went out to a bar and started playing a “let’s write the racist FoxNews.com comment thread” drinking game, our efforts couldn’t begin to approach what I read there.I wasn’t alone. Liberal websites started feasting on these threads. And so, a couple of years ago, Ailes & Co. got wise. Stories about race were, at least in my disheartened experience, closed to comments.

Three pictures in the
Washingtonian that make
Jay Carney look ridiculous
Mediaite, by Noah Rothman    Original Article
Posted By: Fiesta del sol- 4/12/2014 7:10:07 AM     Post Reply
The most decadent Beltway publication yet conceived, Washingtonian, has outdone itself with its latest celebration of what life is like inside the city fueled by your forcibly confiscated money. The publication recently ran with a profile of White House Press Sec. Jay Carney‘s wife, ABC News personality and working mom Claire Shipman. Carney’s two beautiful children are also profiled in the piece, but the profile itself is largely irrelevant. What is worthy of dissection are the three featured images that add value to the profile. And by “value,” we mean guffaws galore.

The chairman of the House Committee on Veterans ­Affairs said Wednesday that dozens of VA hospital patients in Phoenix may have died while awaiting medical care. Rep. Jeff Miller, R-Fla., said staff investigators also have evidence that the Phoenix VA Health Care System keeps two sets of records to conceal prolonged waits that patients must endure for ­doctor appointments and treatment. "It appears as though there could be as many as 40 veterans whose deaths could be ­related to delays in care," ­Miller announced to a stunned audience during a committee hearing Wednesday.

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No
