Obama to stress need to raise
debt limit "without drama"

President Barack Obama will renew his case for tax hikes on wealthy Americans to avert a year-end fiscal crunch and call for a smooth increase in the nation´s borrowing limit in a speech to a business group on Wednesday, a White House official said. The president is embarked on an aggressive campaign to pressure congressional Republicans to compromise on steps to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff. He will argue to corporate executives that it would hurt the nation´s economy to have another protracted political fight over raising the debt limit, the official said.

Barry - here is a new concept. Spend less and you don´t have to raise the debt limit. Drama - gone!

Spending our once great republic into oblivion rates quite a bit of "drama" in my opinion. We are witnessing the dismantling of the last best hope of mankind by unscrupulous, cravan Marxists, led by the Anti-Christ in the White House.

Let me tie Oblahblah´s proposal to gun control. Giving THIS president THAT unconstitutional authority is like giving a loaded Glock to a three year old.

Don´t increase spending. Cut spending by 20%. With a copy of last year´s actual expenditures and a few boxes of black Sharpies and a small room in which to work, I can do it in a few weeks.

Lede should read ´without the constitutional rule to do so only by Congress and the House in particular´. This would be dictatorical and it seems that this is his and the leftists aim. Who needs control of Congress to do anything that he wants? The Republicans and any thinking citizen should be shouting the Constitution loud and clear.

Our Constitution is still the law of our land. It may be ignored or violated, but it is STILL the LAW!

There is a full blown criminal in the White House.

Molinaro signs repeal
of county energy sales tax
Poughkeepsie Journal [NY], by John Ferro    Original Article
Posted By: athina- 4/8/2014 9:46:35 PM     Post Reply
Dutchess County Executive Marc Molinaro today signed a measure that removes a 3.75 percent sales tax on residential energy sources in Dutchess County. "We have listened to our constituents and now keep our promise to repeal this tax upon receipt of aid from Albany," Molinaro said in a statement. The Dutchess County Legislature voted unanimously Monday night to repeal the sales tax, which was imposed last year in order to make up a budget shortfall. The vote, coming barely a month after the tax went into effect, was spurred by strong condemnation from the public, and by $5.25 million in

Supreme Court rejects appeal from
New Mexico photographer who

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.- The U.S. Supreme Court rejected an appeal Monday from a studio that refused to photograph a lesbian couple´s commitment ceremony, letting stand a New Mexico high court ruling that helped spur a national debate over gay rights and religious freedom. The justices left in place a unanimous state Supreme Court ruling last year that said Elane Photography violated New Mexico´s Human Rights Act by refusing to photograph the same-sex ceremony "in the same way as if it had refused to photograph a wedding between people of different races."

Government intervenes at school
´taken over’ by Muslim radicals
Telegraph (UK), by Andrew Gilligan    Original Article
Posted By: athina- 3/23/2014 8:13:20 PM     Post Reply
The Birmingham school at the centre of an alleged campaign of “Islamisation” by Muslim radicals is to be placed in “special measures” by the Government’s education watchdog in a move that could see its head teacher and governors removed. Park View, previously rated “outstanding” by Ofsted, will be downgraded to “inadequate”, the lowest possible score, in the category of leadership and management, senior education sources said. This enables Ofsted to place the school in special measures, allowing the watchdog, if it wishes, to remove the school’s entire leadership. The move, described as “seismic” by senior educational

Jeh Johnson, Secretary of Homeland
Security, wins confidence of many
New York Daily News, by Joseph Straw    Original Article
Posted By: athina- 2/16/2014 3:50:41 PM     Post Reply
The fourth person to head the Department of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, is the only one who watched firsthand as terrorists struck New York. “Like millions of others that day,” Johnson told the U.S. Conference of Mayors recently, “I was shocked, I was devastated, I wanted to do something.” The opportunity came in 2009, when President Obama asked him to be the Pentagon’s general counsel, supervising 10,000 lawyers and delivering advice to Defense Secretary Robert Gates on every major military operation — including the high-risk mission that ended Osama Bin Laden’s life.

Immigration-Reform Opponents
Suspect a Ruse
National Review Online, by Andrew Stiles    Original Article

Opponents of the Senate Gang of Eight legislation have long been wary of the House leadership’s intentions with respect to immigration reform. They are perhaps even more skeptical now that proponents are already downplaying the odds of success. House Budget Committee chairman Paul Ryan (R., Wis.), one of the most prominent GOP advocates for comprehensive immigration reform, told ABC News’s George Stephanopoulos on Sunday that reform’s prospects were “clearly in doubt.” Opponents of comprehensive reform say they have reason to suspect a ruse. For example, the fate of the Gang of Eight legislation was frequently called into question, even though

Court deals blow to SAFE Act

ALBANY — New York’s ban on assault weapons is constitutional, but the state’s gun control law cannot limit a magazine to seven bullets, a federal court judge ruled Tuesday. The ruling by Chief U.S. District Judge William Skretny in Buffalo found New York’s law, called the SAFE Act, doesn’t infringe on Second Amendment rights. But the judge tossed a provision that allows only seven bullets in a magazine, saying the number is “arbitrary.” “This court finds that the challenged provisions of the SAFE Act — including the act’s definition and regulation of assault weapons and its ban on large-capacity magazines

A&E to LGBT Group: ´Duck Dynasty´ Family
´Open´ to Dialogue with Gays, Blacks
Breitbart Big Hollywood, by Tony Lee    Original Article

After A&E reinstated Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson on Friday, the Human Rights Campaign, which promotes gay rights, said the network gave them assurances that the Robertson family would be open to having a dialogue with blacks and the LGBT community. The group revealed they asked A&E for such meetings after it suspended Robertson for making what were deemed to be anti-gay comments in a GQ magazine interview. Fred Sainz, a Human Rights Campaign representative, told CNN that the group wanted to "thank A&E for their attentiveness and collaboration over the course of the last few weeks"

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

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

In a Hole, Golf Considers

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

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

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
