A Little Bit of Hubris
American Spectator, by Mark Amadeus Notturno

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 1/5/2019 5:19:23 PM

The Yankees had a hitter when I was kid. Robertson? Robinson? He didn’t last long, and I forget his name. But he had the most beautiful swing that I have ever seen. Better than the Babe, and better than the Mick, and certainly better than Yogi, who hardly looked like a major league baseball player at all. He would step to the plate with sleek power oozing from his biceps. And he would take three or four practice swings each time he did. His eyes focused on an imaginary pitch, he would bend his knees

The fact that Romney became the governor of Massachusetts at age 60 and the junior senator from Utah at 71 may indicate a man who is needy, fickle and devious. The current unease with the treachery of globalists and the Romney bona fides make him seem completely unsuitable for anything but the back bench - if that.

Most Mormon men just dump the old wife and take on a young new one (often foreign born) at his age.
Not Mitt.
His big lie around here in Utah was that (after his loss to Obama) his wife was so ill he could not ever consider another run for any office while she lived.

The Democratic Crackup
Wall Street Journal, by Kimberley A. Strassel    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 3/8/2019 5:10:06     Post Reply
Americans love a good political brawl, and that’s terrible news for Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Her Democratic Party has commenced a full throw-down—with itself. Few things have benefited Democrats more in the past few years than the Donald Trump show. The president likes to be the center of attention, and the media likes nothing more than to oblige him. This dynamic helped make the 2018 election a referendum on the man himself rather than his policies, and that made Mrs. Pelosi speaker of the House. Democrats envisioned the same dynamic helping them win the White House in 2020.

The Army´s killer drones: How a secretive
special ops unit decimated ISIS
Yahoo News, by Sean D. Naylor    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 3/7/2019 11:14:38     Post Reply
As the Islamic State’s physical caliphate shrinks to nothing after an almost five-year campaign led by U.S. special operations forces, military insiders say one small unit has killed more of the extremists than any other: the company of Gray Eagle drones in the Army’s 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment. Although the military has thrown a cloak of secrecy over its operations, the unit — officially called E (or “Echo”) Company of the regiment’s Second Battalion and established less than a decade ago — is increasingly being lauded in special operations and Army aviation circles. “They are doing the most killing of anyone

‘La Tortuga’ Is Here to Save Baseball

FORT MYERS, Fla.—It’s no secret that baseball’s grip on the collective imagination of the country has slipped. Football is the national sport now. Basketball is king with the social-media generation. Though America’s pastime isn’t dying, the long-term trend lines are worrisome. But against all odds, there is a player in the Upper Midwest who is capable of healing what ails the game. His name is Willians Astudillo, and he is here to save baseball. Astudillo is a 27-year-old rookie who toiled in the minors for a decade. He might not make the Minnesota Twins’ 25-man roster

Pork Rinds Graduate From
Gas Station to Gourmet

Posted By: StormCnter- 3/6/2019 9:07:31     Post Reply
A buzzy snack is popping up in supermarkets across the country alongside kale chips and quinoa puffs: pork rinds. Even longtime fans might not recognize their new place in the foodie food chain. New brands are seeking to transcend the rind’s reputation as a greasy gas-station staple by using premium ingredients like humanely raised pork and Himalayan pink salt. If that’s not enough to provoke a serious case of cognitive dissonance, there are even vegan alternatives.

More Migrant Families Arrested at Border
in Five Months Than Any Previous Full Year
Wall Street Journal, by Alicia A. Caldwell and Jessica Wang    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 3/5/2019 2:15:59     Post Reply
The U.S. has set a new record for the number of migrant families caught crossing its southern border over an entire year. It took just five months. From the start of the federal fiscal year in October through February, the Border Patrol arrested 136,150 people traveling as families for crossing the border illegally, according to data released Tuesday. The prior record for a 12-month period was 107,212, during the fiscal year that ended last September. The rapid acceleration is the latest illustration of how many parents and children are seeking asylum

West Texas has seen its share of oil booms, but the people there say this one is unlike any they’ve seen. Driven by shale drilling, a gusher of crude production has transformed the Permian Basin into America’s hottest oilfield, turning what was a remote stretch of towns spread among mesquite trees and scrubland into an industrial zone, seemingly overnight. A home under construction on the outskirts of Odessa, Texas. Oil and gas workers earning top dollar have scooped up much of the available housing in the area.

Why My Wife And I Decided
To Abort Our Unborn Gay Son

My girlfriend and I recently found out she is pregnant. I told her I’d support her and the baby, and secretly started saving for an engagement ring. She said she thought I would have wanted her to get an abortion. I didn’t—at least at first. She was excited and started planning the nursery. It took me two months to save up, but I finally got on one knee and popped the question. She cried and said yes. I’m still scared about being a dad, but I’ve got a good job and so does she.

How Covington´s Nick Sandmann
could win his longshot defamation
claim against the Washington Post
Fox News, by Hans A. von Spakovsky    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 2/28/2019 3:58:42     Post Reply
Nicholas Sandmann is one of the Covington High School students caught in a media firestorm while attending the March for Life last month in Washington, D.C. Now, he is pushing back. This week, his lawyers filed a defamation lawsuit against the Washington Post for $250 million dollars – the amount that Jeff Bezos spent to buy the newspaper. Does Sandmann have any chance of winning? The short answer is “yes.” But it’s not a sure thing. He’s taking on a defendant with very deep pockets and absolutely no incentive to settle.

It’s certainly unconventional. But is it working?
Trump’s North Korea strategy wins over some experts.
Washington Post, by Simon Denyer    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 2/27/2019 3:27:32     Post Reply
HANOI — When President Trump boasts of his wonderful relationship with North Korean supreme leader Kim Jong Un, or claims that there would have been war if he hadn’t been elected, many people cringe. But behind Trump’s boasting and bluster, a small band of experts in North Korean affairs see a strategy taking shape. Making Kim feel respected and secure, they say, offers a possible way to persuade him to give up — or at least scale back — his nuclear arsenal in return for economic and diplomatic rewards.

The Montreal Alouettes cut quarterback Johnny Manziel on Wednesday. Manziel played part of his CFL rookie season with the Alouettes, and was believed to be the quarterback of the future for them. It’s all over now. General manager Kavis Reed told the media the following: We are disappointed by this turn of events. Johnny was provided a great deal of support by our organization, in collaboration with the CFL, but he has been unable to abide by the terms of his agreement. We worked with the league and presented alternatives to Johnny, who was unwilling to proceed. That makes the situation sound very bad,

The Reparations Primary
National Review, by Editors    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 2/27/2019 8:57:40     Post Reply
There is a strange political conversation under way as the 2020 Democratic presidential primary gets under way, and it goes like this: One group of Democrats proposes something daffy, vague, and impractical, and another group of Democrats says, “Of course that’s daffy, vague, and impractical — but at least they started a conversation!” (Snip)Paying reparations for slavery is a terrible idea because there is no one to pay reparations and no one to pay them to. There are not any slave-owners left among us and haven’t been for some time. There aren’t any liberated slaves, either.

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, née Meghan Markle, used an International Women’s Day event that she and husband Harry, Duke of Sussex, hope their baby will be a feminist. “I’d seen this documentary on Netflix on feminism and one of the things they said during pregnancy was, ‘I feel the embryonic kicking of feminism’,” the American divorcee, 37, told her audience at the Queen’s Commonwealth Trust event, hosted by King’s College London. “I loved that — boy or girl, whatever it is, we hope that’s the case, our little bump,” added the former Suits actress.

Unearthed radio clips have revealed a number of sexist, misogynistic and perverted remarks by Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson. The clips compiled and published Sunday by Media Matters For America were recorded back when Carlson was a regular commentator on the shock jock radio program ´Bubba the Love Sponge´ between 2006 and 2011. For about an hour each week, Carlson would call into the show and weigh in on current events, often sharing controversial opinions in vulgar terms. On several occasions the conservative commentator defended underage marriage and statutory rape while making crude comments about minors exploring their sexuality. He also frequently employed misogynistic

If you find it difficult to grasp how a handful of leftwing extremists managed to win last week’s battle with the nominal leadership of the Democratic Party over a House resolution originally written to condemn anti-Semitism, Margaret Thatcher explained the phenomenon four decades ago: “The one thing about leftwing politicians is that they are always fanatical. They never let go. It’s their religion.” She was describing how the Labour Party had been destroyed from within by a small minority of radicals. Thatcher eventually exploited this process, led the Conservative Party to victory over Labour, and became Prime Minister

"To me, capitalism is irredeemable," she added, arguing that capitalism´s goals come at a cost to people and the environment, Bloomberg reported.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is ruling out impeaching President Donald Trump, arguing in an interview with the Washington Post Monday that “he’s just not worth it.” “Impeachment is so divisive to the country that unless there’s something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan, I don’t think we should go down that path, because it divides the country. And he’s just not worth it,”(Snip) Pelosi’s remarks come as House Democrats are expanding their investigation into President Trump and his allies, having requested documents from over 80 individuals and entities regarding their finances and communications.

No one could accuse Michelle Obama of lingering in her husband’s shadow. But few expected her to emerge as America’s queen of non-fiction. Far from being a mere postscript to her White House years, the former US first lady’s memoir, Becoming, has proved a literary phenomenon and turning point in her career, dominating bestseller lists and filling stadiums during a promotional tour. And such is Michelle Mania that last month, she stole the show from the biggest stars in music by making a surprise appearance at the Grammy awards. “She’s a rock star at this point. She’s now a political celebrity, ” said

On Saturday, Roger L. Simon lamented at PJ Media that anti-Semitism is once again becoming respectable – or at least acceptable – across the Western world, and that this time around the Jew-haters are predominantly Muslims and leftists. Among the more prominent new standard bearers of this old hatred, noted Simon, are our two recently elected Muslim congresswomen, who, he quite reasonably surmised, “were likely inculcated at an early age, as were too many Muslim children, with the belief that Jews only (pace Darwin) were the descendants of pigs and apes and should be wiped from the Earth.”
