Rockefeller under Seige
National Review Online, by John Fund

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 11/26/2012 10:21:47 AM

The jockeying for Senate races in 2014 has already begun. West Virginia GOP congresswoman Shelley Moore Capito will announce today her plans to challenge 75-year-old Democratic incumbent Jay Rockefeller. The early move is clearly an attempt to nudge into retirement a liberal Democrat who is increasingly out of step with his state. West Virginia, once solidly Democratic at the presidential level, gave President Obam a only 35 percent of the vote this year, down from 43 percent in 2008. The West Virginia Poll taken last August shows just how vulnerable Rockefeller is to a Republican challenge.

Comments:
I have read that Jay Rockefeller is one of the duller knives in the Senate drawer.

John D. Rockefeller IV, Dunce from WV, appeared on Fox Sunday, shortly after the vote to allow President George W. Bush to invade Iraq, and the dunce spoke in support of the invasion.
Rockefeller , a couple of years later, and in opposition to the invasion, insisted that he never supported it. And when they played back the video of him supporting the invasion, he tried to deny that he said that. He just shook his head in denial, with that stupid little rockefeller grin on his ugly face.

Jay Rockefeller is another left-wing liberal Socialist who inherited a trust fund and never had to or did work a day in his rich life. He has been on the public dole for most of his worthless life and will now, hopefully, ride off into the sunset. Problem is, we will still have to keep on paying into his wealthy cofers for the rest of his worthless life. What a bore!

I never understood why West Virginia kept electing this moron. Probably the same mind set that kept Robert Byrd the KKK wizzard in office till he croaked. As far as I´m concerned, the people of West Virginia voted to kill off the coal industry with those votes. Breaking for Romney was a few days late and a fortune short. Hear that West Virginia?

Amazing ain´t it - - that the "anti-rich" demonrats keep electing people named Rockefeller, Kennedy, Kohl, Dayton, Feinstein, Spitzer, Kerry-Heinz - - and assorted other dilettantes who inherited great wealth which they never worked a minute to earn.

Yes, indeed - - amazing!

Shelley, I admire your spirit, but remember the last Dem Senator they had; he carried out in a bag, decades after he should have been defeated at the ballot box. Not to mention all the "Byrd droppings", naming every road, bridge, rest stop, sewage treatment plant, etc, after KKK Byrd himself.

Cappito will run and lose against Oliver Luck (D), West Va university´s athletic director. Rocky will retire. No way Cappito can defeat a Democratic Male ex NFL Football player ( Houston Oilers ), Democrats, and football players rule the roost here in the Mountaneer State.

Say Goodbye to Taiwan
National Interest Magazine, by John J. Mearsheimer    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/20/2014 6:11:05 AM     Post Reply
WHAT ARE the implications for Taiwan of China’s continued rise? Not today. Not next year. No, the real dilemma Taiwan will confront looms in the decades ahead, when China, whose continued economic growth seems likely although not a sure thing, is far more powerful than it is today. Contemporary China does not possess significant military power; its military forces are inferior, and not by a small margin, to those of the United States. Beijing would be making a huge mistake to pick a fight with the American military nowadays. China, in other words, is constrained by the present global balance

The Bundy Ranch Standoff

The immediate "crisis" portion of the standoff involving the federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy over his cattle grazing on federal land ended last week. Whether this will be end of Bundy´s troubles with the BLM, who have been in court with him over his refusal to pay fees to them for decades, remains to be seen, with the Bundys reporting that they´ve received registered mail from the BLM this week that they haven´t opened yet. I blogged about a lot of the factual background of the conflict here, with links to some relevant court documents. This story

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

Spotlighting a law that stripped
U.S.-born women of citizenship

WASHINGTON — Daniel Swalm was researching his family when he came across a disturbing episode in immigration history. That discovery would lead to a move in the U.S. Senate to apologize for action the nation took more than a century ago. Swalm discovered that under an obscure 1907 law, his grandmother Elsie, born and raised in Minnesota, was stripped of her U.S. citizenship after marrying an immigrant from Sweden. Swalm had never heard of the Expatriation Act that required a U.S.-born woman who married a foreigner to "take the nationality of her husband." Swalm, who lives in Minneapolis, found out about the law

Russian Regular Forces To Invade
"NewRussia" Between May 4 And 9?

This “Open Letter to the Friends of Ukraine,” by a guest columnist who writes under the pen name of Irina Gokieli, dated April 19, offers the author’s pessimistic scenario of forthcoming events in what Vladimir Putin now calls “NewRussia.” “NewRussia” encompasses southeastern Ukraine and parts of Moldova. She predicts an invasion by regular Russian troops near the end of the first week of May under the pretext of restoring order, although she does not rule out, as an alternative, an alliance of Putin with certain Ukrainian politicians and oligarchs. Notably the author makes a persuasive case that the long-term consequences

Liberals now love Barry Goldwater,
but his 1964 loss won the GOP’s future
Boston Globe, by Jeff Jacoby    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/20/2014 5:32:07 AM     Post Reply
TO THE RECENT spate of 50th-anniversary reflections on major political and cultural milestones — the 1963 March on Washington, the assassination of John F. Kennedy, the Beatles on the Ed Sullivan Show — get ready to add another: The presidential campaign of Barry Goldwater, the most influential loser in modern American politics. Goldwater was nicknamed “Mr. Conservative,” but now even liberals adore him. Robert F. Kennedy Jr. penned an essay a few years back effusive in its praise for Goldwater, whom he described as an exemplar of civility, decency, and integrity. Goldwater was “neither mean-spirited nor racist,” wrote Kennedy; he challenged

A three-year study of how network news refers to “Easter” reveals that by a margin of 500-56, reports that mention the word or “Easter season” choose a secular path linking it to candy Peeps, frilly clothes and cocktails over Christ’s resurrection. “Instead of celebrating Christ´s rising from the dead, the networks have made it about ´egg-cellent Easter fashions,´ frilly Easter bonnets and pink martinis,” said a report from the conservative Media Research Center provided to Secrets on Good Friday. The study reviewed three years of news in the two weeks before Easter and found that about 89 percent of the references to

White House blames fox for
destroying Michelle’s garden

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls. The bushy-tailed visitor

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
