for Obama in Parma

Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 10/13/2012 3:54:34 PM

WASHINGTON- Bruce Springsteen will be back campaigning for President Barack Obama. The musician will join former President Bill Clinton at a Thursday rally in Parma, two days after the second presidential debate. Obama will not attend the rally. Springsteen also will appear at a campaign event Thursday in Ames, Iowa. Springsteen campaigned for Obama in 2008, but these will be his first political appearances of the 2012 cycle. Clinton is a prominent campaigner for Obama.

With all the tension between Obozo and HillBilly, I am surprised Billy would do this unless he is planning on sabotaging him.

Billy Jeff just wants to hang out with Springsteen. Will he bring his sax? This is about him, not Obama.

But he's a political idiot if he still supports Obama.
Geez, these celebrities will do anything to insure they keep getting invited to all the cool parties in Malibu and the Hamptons.

Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.), Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.) penned some questions to President Obama yesterday on the Benghazi terror attack, saying that his recent interview with Bill O’Reilly raised “more questions than it answers” about the deaths of four Americans at the diplomatic facility. From the senators’ letter: First, in your interview with O’Reilly, you said, “In the aftermath what became clear was that the security was lax, that not all the precautions that needed to be taken were taken.” We agree with your assessment, which is substantiated by the terrorist attack itself as well as multiple

Ex-State Dept. adviser to plead

A former State Department arms expert has agreed to plead guilty to disclosing national defense information to a Fox News reporter, his lawyer said in federal court Friday. The agreement calls for him to serve 13 months in prison. Stephen Jin-Woo Kim was accused of sharing information from a classified report on North Korea with Fox chief Washington correspondent James Rosen. Investigators also targeted Rosen, calling him a possible “co-conspirator” to obtain a search warrant for his personal e-mail. The law enforcement tactics used in Kim’s case - and in another case involving the phone records of Associated Press journalists

Harry Reid reigns as lord of the Senate
Washington Examiner (DC), by David M. Drucker    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 2/7/2014 2:25:13 PM     Post Reply
Harry Reid effectively owns the U.S. Senate. Democrats and Republicans have long debated how Reid managed to get such a tight grip on the upper chamber. But there is no debating this much: Nothing happens on the floor, or in committee, without the Nevada Democrat´s approval. Most important Senate legislation is written in Reid’s office and sent directly to the floor for a vote on final passage, sidelining committee chairmen who historically have functioned as an influential and quasi-independent force. In the past, a bill would not go to the floor before a series of votes and amendments in whatever

New World Trade Center design

Falling ice from One World Trade Center led to the closure of nearby streets, the PATH station and a memorial pool Friday morning. Port Authority workers closed the main entrance to the World Trade Center station about 8:45 a.m. after ice began plummeting more than 1000 feet off the nearly-completed building, officials said. Service to Newark and Hoboken was suspended. The tower´s distinctive design made matters worse, witnesses said. The building’s sloping corners functioned like a ski jump for falling ice. "The ice just comes down the side and shoots off," said one PATH worker, who declined to give his

Cleta Mitchell, attorney for an assortment of Tea Party groups that received very special attention from Barack Obama’s politicized Internal Revenue Service, lowered the boom on what she described as a “sham, non-existent” Justice Department investigation of the scandal during House Ways and Means Committee hearings on Thursday: (Video) "I want to make three primary points here today,” said Mitchell. ”First, the IRS scandal is real.

During a congressional hearing into the Internal Revenue Services’ admitted targeting of conservative groups prior to the 2012 election cycle, an attorney representing some of those groups severely chastised President Barack Obama for asserting during an interview with Fox News Channel host Bill O’Reilly that there was not a “smidgen” of corruption at that agency. After citing a number of items of evidence which support the claim that the IRS unfairly targeted conservative groups, attorney Jay Sekulow said that the IRS scandal goes “as high as it gets.” Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) began by asking attorney Cleta Mitchell if she

CVS will no longer sell cigarettes,

CVS, one of the biggest pharmacy chains in the US, kicked the habit this week. With some fanfare, including an approving statement from former smoker Barack Obama, CVS said it would forgo the estimated $2bn annual revenue from tobacco products, saying it was incompatible with its healthcare role. Which is great, because cigarette smoking is the leading preventable cause of death in the US. It kills 480,000 people a year. However some researchers say that obesity is overtaking cigarette smoking as the leading cause of preventable death. Others say it has already. What do you have to say about that,

A Canadian electro-industrial band is asking for thousands of dollars in royalties after learning that the US military used their music to torture prisoners at Guantánamo Bay. Skinny Puppy claim they filed a $666,000 (£368,000) bill with America´d defence department. "We sent them an invoice for our musical services considering they had gone ahead and used our music without our knowledge and used it as an actual weapon against somebody," keyboardist Cevin Key recently told CTV News.

1,154,000 fewer Americans are working today than six years ago, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. In January 2008, 146,378,000 Americans 16 and over were employed, and now in January 2014, 145,224,000 are employed, a difference of 1,154,000. 91,455,000 Americans 16 or older did not participate in the nation’s labor force in January, meaning they neither held a job nor actively sought one. That´s a 353,000 decline from December, but 172,000 more than November. The national labor force participation rate -- the share of Americans who had a job or were actively looking for one -- ticked

Conservative Women Drive Ratings

This week The View featured several conservative women as guest hosts, something show co-host Whoopi Goldberg admitted was an attempt to boost ratings. The very notion that conservative women could generate interest flies in the face of the phony Republican War on Women meme while reminding viewers how few GOP-friendly female guests appear on morning talk shows. On Monday, Dana Loesch—former editor of Breitbart News´s Big Journalism and currently a host on Glenn Beck´s cable network The Blaze—sat on the ABC show´s panel, followed on Tuesday by HotAir´s Mary Katharine Ham.

Cleta Mitchell may be the most dangerous woman in America. She is the prominent Washington attorney who represents several clients victimized by the criminal misconduct of the IRS over the past four years. She speaks with authority when she asserts, as she does in the video below, that the Obama administration is responsible for “lies upon lies” covering up the multifarious wrongdoing of the IRS. She gave a short course (seven minutes) for interested citizens at a House hearing yesterday. Listen to what she has to say. She knows what she is talking about.

Donna Edwards, D-Md. Edwards, this year’s Democratic comedy keynote, started out strong with a “Scandal” parody. She was Kerry Washington’s character Olivia Pope. The American president was the “Scandal” president Fitzgerald Grant. And the other man, House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), made for a scandalous love triangle. The spoof was inspired by a real life photo of Edwards “kissing” Boehner during the Congressional Women’s baseball game. But then the Maryland Democrat decided to

Washington - Americans overwhelmingly favor a bill that would give most undocumented immigrants a pathway towards citizenship, according to a new national poll. And a CNN/ORC International survey also indicates that a majority of the public says that the government´s main focus should be legalizing the status of the undocumented rather than border security. The poll was released Thursday, the same day that House Speaker John Boehner signaled any action on immigration is unlikely this year because House Republicans don't trust President Barack Obama on the issue. According to the poll, 54% say the top priority for the

House committees are still digging into the IRS political targeting scandal, and based on a hearing Wednesday there´s more to learn. The day produced more evidence blowing apart President Obama´s claims that there was "not even a smidgen of corruption" or political motivation in the IRS handling of groups applying for tax-exempt status. Mr. Obama wants Americans to believe that the targeting resulted from the confusing tax law governing nonprofits, which he says was "difficult" to interpret and resulted in mere "bureaucratic" mistakes. This is also the Administration´s justification for issuing new regulations governing

AUSTIN, Texas — The Wild West tradition of openly carrying your six-shooter on the street has long been banned in Texas under state law. But the next governor could change that. Rising Democratic star and gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis has joined her top Republican rival in supporting a proposed "open carry" law. It would allow people with concealed handgun licenses to wear a pistol on their hip, in full view, while in public. Davis has said she supports expanding gun rights in Texas. In a statement to The Associated Press, she said that includes open-carry — a position that puts her at

A private girls´ school in Northern California wanted to incorporate Black History Month into lunch time, so it decided to serve fried chicken, watermelon, and cornbread. As the Associated Press reports, school officials are apologizing because that was a really, really horrible idea. The school´s principal wrote a letter to parents, who were offended, and said the school doesn´t "perpetrate racial stereotypes." Unfortunately, that´s exactly what they did. In honor of Black History Month, we´d like to explain exactly why your fried chicken and watermelon lunch is ill-advised, with the hope that people will find better ways to honor this

The White House and congressional Democrats tried to limit the fallout Wednesday from the politically damaging conclusion in a Congressional Budget Office report that the Obamacare entitlement creates a major incentive for some people not to work. While some critics focused on a finding by the CBO that Obamacare will result in 2.5 million fewer workers over a decade, conservatives said the bigger fundamental issue highlighted in the report is one familiar to the welfare state — that taxpayer-funded government subsidies provide disincentives for full-time work. “People used to be stuck in jobs because they needed the health insurance,” said

There´s been a lot of blathering about who the front-runner for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination is, and so far I´ve resisted taking part. But I guess I´m kind of curious: Is there much of a case to be made for anyone other than Paul Ryan? On the substantive side, Ryan sure seems like he´s setting himself up for a run. There´s his steady series of "unheralded" anti-poverty outreach trips that always manage to be just heralded enough to get sympathetic press coverage. He brokered a budget deal with Patty Murray that was businesslike and low-drama but didn´t alienate the tea

"I started with drugs around the same time that we all did, around 11,” Allman said. “I mean it´s just what you did, it´s just what everybody did.” He added that he started off using marijuana and ecstasy, then later began abusing harder drugs like heroin.

This is either a glaring admission of defeat from the White House or… no, that’s really all it could be. After weeks of defending the cancellation of health plans insurers discontinued in 2013 in order to comply with the Affordable Care Act’s coverage mandates, the White House announced in November of last year that it was urging insurers to reinstate those plans. The catch was, of course, that most insurers would be unable to turn on a dime and reinstate those plans. Furthermore, the administration allowed individual states leeway to determine whether or not they would even allow insurers to reinstate
