Gov. Rick Perry backs
Mitt Romney on abortion

Politico, by Kevin Robillard

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 10/10/2012 2:20:11 PM

Texas Gov. Rick Perry isn’t worried about his former primary rival’s reluctance to push legislation restricting abortion rights, saying on Wednesday that he’s confident Mitt Romney will appoint “constitutionalists” to the Supreme Court. “I think the Supreme Court is where that issue will be decided, from the standpoint of how America’s going — We’ll have a Supreme Court decision, and that’s where the focus will be,” Perry said on CBS’ “This Morning.” “He’s said very clearly that he’s going to put people who are constitutionalists on the Supreme Court.” Romney, who supported abortion rights as governor of Massachusetts, said Tuesday

Comments:
Sorry, Dems, this is not even an issue right now. Abortion is legal, so what is it they would like Romney to do?

This morning on Fox and Friends, we heard the inspiring story of Montana high school football player Koni Dole, who hasn´t let an amputated leg keep him off the field. Now using a prosthetic blade, the running back scored two touchdowns Friday night, plus registered a sack while playing defensive end as Huntley Project High School won its season opener 45-0. In the final game of last season, Dole suffered a gruesome leg injury that required multiple surgeries. Due to a serious infection, doctors were forced to amputate his right leg below the knee. Dole actually wrestled for the high

The Frightening Truth
About Syria’s WMDs
National Review Online, by Stanley Kurtz    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 9/3/2013 2:27:39 PM     Post Reply
The United States faces a serious threat from Syrian WMDs. It’s just not the one we’re talking about. While Syrian-on-Syrian chemical weapons use is inarguably horrifying, the greater danger to the United States and its allies is the transfer of Syrian chemical weapons to terrorists. The risk of chemical weapons proliferation has now significantly increased. And unfortunately, either a yea or a nay vote in Congress on action against Syria is likely to endanger us still further. The problem is that President Obama drew his red line in the wrong place. It was always unlikely that a desperate Assad could

Imagine you are a parent who receives a visit from the state police, informing you that a trusted teacher at the local school molested your child — and took pictures of it. After a painful investigation and trial, the teacher finally gets convicted, and you figure the community will rally around you to demand a stiff sentence for the man who violated the public trust. However, when you arrive at the courtroom, you see several other teachers sitting in support of the teacher, and arguing for the lightest possible sentence. Welcome to the West Branch-Rose City (MI) school district, and the

UNITED NATIONS — U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is warning that any “punitive” action taken against Syria for an alleged chemical weapons attack last week could unleash more turmoil and bloodshed in that nation’s civil war. Ban also cautioned nations such as the United States and France that may be considering such strikes that they are legal only in self-defense under the U.N. Charter or if approved by the U.N. Security Council. Russia and China have used their veto power in the council multiple times to keep it from taking action against Syrian President Bashar Assad’s regime.

FORT WORTH — Wendy Davis burst into the national political consciousness this summer as a feminist folk hero. She was a titan in pink tennis shoes, a single mother who became a lawyer, stood up to the Republican boys club and, against all odds, temporarily halted enactment of a restrictive abortion bill. Last week, a different side of the Democratic state senator emerged: the devoted daughter of an ailing father, Jerry Russell, who is well known in Fort Worth theater circles but isn’t mentioned in her compelling campaign biography. Her mother, a sixth grade dropout who made do without child

Unintended Consequences

One of the many unintended consequences of the political crusade for increased homeownership among minorities, and low-income people in general, has been a housing boom and bust that left many foreclosed homes that had to be rented, because there were no longer enough qualified buyers. The repercussions did not stop there. Many homeowners have discovered that when renters replace homeowners as their neighbors, the neighborhood as a whole can suffer. The physical upkeep of the neighborhood, on which everyone’s home values depend, tends to decline. “Who’s going to paint the outside of a rented house?” one resident was quoted as saying in

´At what point do you look at this picture and ask, ´Why are you fighting anymore?´" muses Dan Gerawan, whose third-generation family farm in Fresno, Calif., has been under assault by California´s labor-regulatory complex. Within days a state mediator could impose an unwieldy labor contract that may force him out of business. However, the ultimate victims will be his farm workers. Mr. Gerawan´s story illustrates the devolution of California´s progressive dream. His grandfather migrated from Dust Bowl Oklahoma and started a small farm, which his father expanded into the country´s largest grower of peaches and nectarines. Dan and his brother grew up

Obama´s summer slump

President Barack Obama has just ended a summer shadowed by weakness: A convergence of external events and what even some Democrats are calling self-inflicted setbacks have cast a harsh light on a so-far anemic second term. He is now beginning an autumn in which conflicts that have festered sullenly for years — in Syria and on Capitol Hill — are poised for climactic resolution. The next several weeks offer a chance for Obama to shift the direction of a presidency in which he has been slowly bleeding both personal popularity and, more importantly, the intangible mystique of power — one that

President ‘Present’

Washington is abuzz with talk about how much President Obama has damaged America’s credibility with his indecisiveness on Syria. It’s become accepted fact that Obama’s decision-making style resembles that of an academic convening an unruly seminar whose participants he largely disdains. What he is not is a decisive leader with the ability to bring disparate players together behind a common purpose. This shouldn’t be a surprise. We had inklings of it a long time ago. Back when Barack Obama was running for president in 2008, Hillary Clinton accused him of “taking a pass” on tough issues when he was in the

NEW YORK — A federal jury has rejected the argument that use of the N-word among blacks can be a culturally acceptable term of love and endearment, deciding its use in the workplace is hostile and discriminatory no matter what. Jurors last week awarded $250,000 in compensatory damages to a black employment agency worker who was the target of an N-word-laced rant by her black boss, and they return to a Manhattan federal court Tuesday to decide on punitive damages. The case against Rob Carmona and the employment agency he founded, STRIVE East Harlem, gave legal airing to what some see as

Fewer Americans will be returning to the work force after the traditional Labor Day holiday. Labor force participation is at the lowest point since the malaise of the Carter presidency. President Obama’s economic policies have guaranteed a lower standard of living for Americans. A recent report by Gordon Green and John Coder of Sentier Research paints the disturbing picture. On the whole, we’re less well off than we were 13 years ago. Our median income, currently $52,000, is 7 percent lower than it was in 2000, using constant dollars. It’s an especially tough punch in the gut to our youth, who’ve

McCain: Obama to Send

In a private meeting at the White House on Monday with Senator John McCain, President Obama said he plans to give Syrian rebels more advanced weapons, according to McCain. If this happens, it would mark an expansion of Obama’s latest Syria strategy of possibly mounting a military response to Bashar al-Assad’s use of chemical weapons. McCain and Sen. Lindsey Graham met with Obama to discuss the plan, which as currently outlined by the White House involves a limited mission to punish the Syrian regime’s use chemical weapons, as the Syrian president did most recently on Aug. 21, and deter future

US Secretary of State John Kerry is concerned about the threat posed by global warming. Speaking Monday via satellite to climate experts gathered for this week’s Pacific Islands Forum (PIF) in the Marshall Islands, US Secretary of State John Kerry asserted that climate change needs to be taken more seriously and that action can be taken to stem the tide of consequence. The Marshall Islands, at no more than three feet above sea level, are especially at risk of rising seas, one of the many effects of global warming.‘The science is clear.

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said Monday that it would be “catastrophic” if a use-of-force resolution against Syria fails to pass Congress. “A rejection of this resolution would be catastrophic, not just for him but for the institution of the presidency and the credibility of the United States,” McCain said after meeting with President Barack Obama. Yet McCain said he has not yet been persuaded to support Obama’s Syria proposal because the president has yet to outline his plan of attack against the Assad regime.

Both House Speaker John Boehner and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Tuesday that they would support President Barack Obama´s plan for limited military action in Syria, with Boehner saying that it´s "something the country needs to do." Both addressed reporters after a meeting Tuesday morning between Obama and Congressional leaders on Syria. "I´m going to support the president´s call for action, and I believe my colleagues should," Boehner said. Boehner´s support is significant for passage in a couple of ways. He rarely gets out publicly ahead of his Republican conference, so it suggests that he feels strongly a

On Tuesday, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) suggested that Fox News host Brian Kilmeade was Islamaphobic because he said that Syrian opposition groups shouting “Allahu Akhbar! Allahu Akhbar!” as rockets hit government offices demonstrated Islamist influence among the opposition. “I have a problem helping those people screaming that after a hit,” Kilmeade said. McCain responded: “Would you have a problem with an American or Christians saying ‘thank God? Thank God?’”

In what is being reported as a surprise move, the 40,000 members of the International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU) announced that they have formally ended their association with the AFL-CIO, one of the nation´s largest private sector unions. The Longshoremen citied Obamacare and immigration reform as two important causes of their disaffiliation. In an August 29 letter to AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka, ILWU President Robert McEllrath cited quite a list of grievances as reasons for the disillusion of their affiliation, but prominent among them was the AFL-CIO´s support of Obamare.

For President Barack Obama´s new foreign policy advisers, the first test of their willingness to undertake military action wound up being a stark lesson in the president´s ability to overrule them all. Obama´s abrupt decision to seek congressional approval before striking Syria also overshadowed what had been a surprising level of consensus among the second-term team members about how to respond to a deadly chemical weapons attack against civilians in Syria. People close to the deliberations say Secretary of State John Kerry, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, national security adviser Susan Rice and U.N. Ambassador Samantha Power largely agreed about the need to

WASHINGTON — The White House’s aggressive push for Congressional approval of an attack on Syria appeared to have won the tentative support of one of President Obama’s most hawkish Republican critics, Senator John McCain of Arizona, who said Monday that he supported a “limited” strike if the president did more to arm the Syrian opposition. In an hourlong meeting at the White House, Mr. McCain said Mr. Obama gave general support to doing more for the Syrian rebels, although no specifics were discussed. In the same conversation, which also included Senator Lindsey Graham, the South Carolina Republican, officials said that

President Obama and his top aides began a full-scale political offensive on Sunday to persuade a skeptical Congress to approve a military strike against Syria, but faced a struggle to win over lawmakers from both parties and a war-weary American public. The President made calls to members of the House of Representatives and Senate, with more scheduled for Monday, underscoring the task confronting the administration before it can go ahead with using force in response to a deadly chemical attack blamed on the Syrian government. Dozens of lawmakers, some in tennis shirts or shirtsleeves, cut short their vacations and streamed

Duquesne University has rescinded an invitation to Fox News journalist Geraldo Rivera to moderate an academic panel on the Kennedy assassination. The reason? Rivera recently snapped a shirtless photograph of himself and sent it to his Twitter followers — a move that violates Duquesne’s Catholic principles, according to a university spokesperson. “The administration felt that Mr. Rivera’s decision to post a nearly naked picture of himself on social media was inappropriate and inconsistent with who we are as a Catholic university and therefore asked the Wecht Institute to withdraw the invitation,” said Bridget Fare, assistant vice president of public affairs at Duquesne,

Portland is in the middle of a nasty bout of black mob violence. This time directed at bicyclists. But Tim Oberlander does not want us to know. Oberlander says he wants to be able to live in a city that does good things for good people. So what’s wrong with that? Everything. Oberlander is a news editor at KGW TV in Portland. His city is under attack from black mob violence centered around Martin Luther King Boulevard. This mob has been attacking bike riders, housewives, students, seniors, you name it.
