Chuck Hagel’s nomination
and the clarity it would bring

Power Line, by Paul Mirengoff

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 1/4/2013 9:10:57 PM

The word is that President Obama is set to nominate Chuck Hagel as Secretary of Defense. Reportedly, the nomination could come as early as Monday. Hagel’s nomination would be a victory for clarity. As has widely been observed, Hagel has no natural constituency, except perhaps for those who want a foreign and defense policy that is tougher on Israel and softer on Iran. Unfortunately, as I have observed, Obama belongs to that constituency. Hence, the clarity his nomination would bring. Israel would be clear that Obama views the Jewish state with hostility

Additional ´clarity´ might also be provided by a marching band with banners proclaiming that America is blind,crippled and crazy and ready to kneel and grovel to whomever might fancy a nice wet arse kissing.

Other than that Chuck is a great guy.

Maybe as real American, we should send contributions to Israel.

The non-real American Musbro living in DC is probably secreting money to Muslim fanatics.

I think Israel is already clear that Obama views the Jewish state with hostility.

Aside from the fact that his views are reprehensible, Hagel´s an idiot. I´ve watched him in years past and concluded there really is no there there.

He reminds me of Florida´s Charie Crist, a career opportunist. Neither man has a core. Calling Hagel a RINO is to pay him an enormous compliment. Hagel, if he gets in, would be probably be the least respected defense secretary ever to hold the post.

From I remember about Hagel as senator, he was just "there", occupying space for the most part. He had no accomplishments. (Sorta like the Musbro in the White House?) He also is anti-Israel.

Watch for Hagel to be portrayed in the media as a really nice guy, who didn´t always get along with his Republican colleagues because they were too harsh (or, MEAN!) or ´´extreme´´.

Then the hearings will begin, and Obama will crow about how, once again, his own efforts to reach across the aisle and attempts at bipartisanship just don´t work with these hard-headed Republicans. Obama´s flying monkeys will commence ridicule of said Senate Republicans (´´target, isolate, ridicule´´) for their negativity about one of their own. ´´This proves they have no intention of working with the White House!´´

Media parroting will ensue. Hagel will be confirmed. (And true patriots in our military will exit, while the ranks expand with thugs. [already happening])

Hagel won´t be nominated.
Not because he is a raging anti-Semite and pro-muslim.
But because he is strongly opposed by the LBGT lobby.

Apparently, it is OK to be anti-Semitic, but one must not be a "homophobe."

I read an article yesterday that said the administration was appealing to defense contractors for donations to promote Hagel as SecDef.
What I remember about Hagel were his leftist positions as. Member of the GOP, and his nasty remarks. He is not a nice person. He fits with the occupant of the WH., who probably Googles "nasty" to find people he wants to join his administration.

Hagel is a pretend Republican who will certainly give Obama the political cover to do whatever he wants to bring down the US military and future US military capabilities. That´s the only reason why Obama would nominate him.

Pay attention to #13´s post.
Hagel will not be confirmed because Obe is hoist on his own petard. He gave the Gay and Lezzies supreme control over military social issues and they have down thumbed Hagel for his anti-gay attitude. They site he would not follow their agenda if he is Sec. Defense.
Now could you have believed several months ago Israel would be saved from the hatred of both Obama and Hagel by that bunch?
we can still admire the mysterious ways of the Lord.

This sums up the parlous state in which the Republic finds itself. The anti-semite Hagel may be rejected as Secretary owing to the outrage of the foully perverted, not because he toes the Marxist´s Islamist line seeking the destruction of our only true ally in the Middle East (aka the reeking armpit of humankind).

Long-term unemployed struggle
to find — and keep — jobs
Washington Post, by Ylan Q. Mui    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/18/2014 10:37:47 PM     Post Reply
For the long-term unemployed, finding a job is hard — but keeping one may be even harder. New research tracking people who have been out of work for six months or longer found that 23 percent of them landed a job within a few months of the study. But a year later, more than a third of that group was unemployed again or out of the labor force altogether. The findings are the latest in a bleak but growing body of literature suggesting long-term unemployment has become a trap that is difficult to escape. Economists say that means the long-term unemployed could become a permanent underclass, left behind by the nation’s broader

Social Security stops trying

The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

Despite promises to the contrary, it appears that State Senator Wendy Davis (D-Fort Worth) voted on bills that affect her clients and favorably impact the bottom line of her law firm. “I have never done anything in a way that represents a conflict in my voting and something that would benefit me personally,” she said in an interview, but state records seem to tell a different story. The Dallas Morning News´ Senior Political Writer Wayne Slater (DMN) reported that Davis supported legislation governing a toll road project. That would be all well and good except for the fact that the

Democrats Lose Two More Special
Elections They Didn’t Expect To

Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Nevada ranch standoff could leave

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

Democrats settle on fairness

On the defensive about their prospects in the midterm elections this fall, congressional Democrats have spent all of April savaging the Republican budget proposal, decrying the Koch brothers and championing a series of bills meant to ingratiate themselves to struggling middle-class voters. In promoting legislation that would extend unemployment benefits, increase the minimum wage and promote equal pay for women, the Democrats have declared themselves the party that will ensure a “fair shot” for all. Republicans, they insist, are the party of special interests. It has been a classic Washington messaging campaign for these partisan

On a trip to Moscow early in her tenure as secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton played the role of international saleswoman, pressing Russian government officials to sign a multibillion-dollar deal to buy dozens of aircraft from Boeing. A month later, Clinton was in China, where she jubilantly announced that the aerospace giant would be writing a generous check to help resuscitate floundering U.S. efforts to host a pavilion at the upcoming World’s Fair. Boeing, she said, “has just agreed to double its contribution to $2 million.” Clinton did not point out that, to secure the donation, the State Department

White House blames fox for

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.

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
