White House knocks
McCain for Palin pick

Washington Times, by Dave Boyer

Original Article

Smarting over Senate Republicans’ criticism of envoy Susan E. Rice that ended her chances of becoming secretary of state, the White House took an apparent swipe Friday at Sen. John McCain’s pick of Sarah Palin as his vice-presidential running mate in 2008. “The leading critics of Ambassador Rice, with their wildly unfounded assertions, have a spotty record at best when it comes to making judgments about who is qualified for high office in this country,” said White House press secretary Jay Carney. Asked to elaborate, Mr. Carney wouldn’t. “You’ll have to deduce,”

I´ve disliked the smug, stupid, opinions of this lightweight long before he became a mouthpiece for the most corrupt, inept, administration in living memory. He isn´t doing much to change my opinion.

FTA: "Mr. McCain has been one of the most outspoken critics of Mrs. Rice’s fitness to replace Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton."

I´ll be interested in seeing if McCain goes after Kerry, who is said to have served in Vietnam, in the same manner. Or, will it be a "lovefest" for his friend from across the aisle?

If John F´n Kerry is nominated, look for McCain to take Kerry´s side when the Swift Boat Vets for Truth start telling the truth about J F´n K.

Now where is that Form 180?

The left never attacked palin on her policies because they knew they were right and a winner with the public. So they attacked her on her personal peculiarities.

On the other hand,we attack Obama on his policies which are interpreted by the left as being racist.Nobody cares what race Obama is but the left.If somebody is taking you over a cliff,what difference does their race make.Jerry Brown is white and he´s every bit the liberal sycophant Obama is.

This is truly ironic, there is nothing wrong with McCain´s judgement on Rice who is incompetent. As far as Palin goes the Loonie Left hates her more than almost anything on the the right...that being said, she was the Vice Presidential candidate, not the Presidential candidate, but was more competent that the other parties leading candidate. But in 2008 as well as 2012, the American Sheeple were asleep at the wheel and now the whole country will continue it´s descent and all will suffer.

Country (formerly Community) Organizer Barack Hussein Obama has had four whole years in which to show us what he can do. Unfortunately, we now know. He shouts Emergency! Emergency! It’s Over the Cliff Panic Time! and he’s the one (The Won) who got us there. Ironic, isn’t it?

Gutless, snarky Jay Carney coyly tells us we will have to “deduce” for ourselves that he, on behalf of his documented to be unqualified and incompetent boss, is referring negatively to Sarah Palin.

The Democrats may think of their executive branch as an administration. In actuality, it’s an asylum.

Supreme Court upholds Michigan’s
ban on racial preferences
in university admissions
Washington Post, by Robert Barnes    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/22/2014 10:09:17 PM     Post Reply
The Supreme Court on Tuesday made clear that states are free to prohibit the use of racial considerations in university admissions, upholding Michigan’s constitutional amendment banning affirmative action. By a vote of 6 to 2, the court concluded that it was not up to judges to overturn the 2006 decision by Michigan voters to bar consideration of race when deciding who gets into the state’s universities. The ruling could encourage other states to join the handful that have such prohibitions, including California and Florida. Higher-education officials have warned that those states have seen a decline in the number of minorities

Court rules Obama administration
must justify targeted killings

The Obama administration must release internal legal documents justifying the targeted killings worldwide of Americans and foreigners suspected of terrorism, a federal appeals court ruled Monday. The decision in a case brought by The New York Times, two of its reporters and the American Civil Liberties Union likely will shed new light on the administration’s use of drones to target terrorists abroad. That program has resulted in the deaths of American citizens, such as leading al Qaeda figure Anwar al-Awlaki, killed by a drone strike in Yemen in 2011. Administration officials had sought to keep internal memorandums regarding the killings

Massachusetts representative Stephen Lynch isn’t just worried about the negative impact Obamacare will have on his party’s performance this fall — he also thinks its worst effects on our health-care system are still to come. Lynch, who voted against the Affordable Care Act in 2010, warned that the situation is “going to hit the fan” when the law’s delayed provisions go into effect down the road. “There are parts of Obamacare, or the Affordable Care Act, that were postponed because they are unpalatable,” he told Boston Herald Radio.

In internal government documents with potential repercussions for the 2016 presidential election, top officials at the U.S. Agency for International Development repeatedly cited former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton for setting into motion a policy to waive restrictions on who could receive U.S. aid in Afghanistan, resulting in millions of dollars in U.S. funds going directly into the coffers of Afghan ministries known to be rife with corruption. References to Mrs. Clinton’s role in the policy first appeared in a November 2012 USAID action memo, which outlined how U.S. officials made a “strategic foreign-assistance

Public Trust: Sixty-one percent polled say President Obama lies "some of the time" or "most of the time" on matters of national importance. Americans have to ask: Why do we let him get away with it? It´s no surprise that a Fox News poll of 1,012 registered voters last week found immense distrust of a president whose main domestic initiative was based on a lie. The shock is that the same poll found his disapproval level down to its lowest since last fall. Asked, "How often do you think Barack Obama lies to the country on important matters?" 37% replied "most of

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

"A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now.
