Obama could drive 'a stake through
his own heart' in do-or-die debate
against Romney tonight

Daily Mail [UK], by Toby Harnden

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 10/16/2012 4:05:50 PM

The Romney campaign goes into tonight's second presidential debate confident that the race has shifted decisively in their direction and that a below par performance by Barack Obama could doom him to defeat on November 6. A senior adviser to Mitt Romney told MailOnline: 'The President could drive a stake through the heart of his own campaign tonight if he's not careful. 'If he doesn't give a vigorous enough defence of his last four years in office, if he tries to place blame everywhere else, if he doesn't articulate what the next four years will look like beyond just giving

I do believe they have a good idea of what 0bama is readying for this debate. It is very likely then that they have a trap set for him and that would be the ''stake.''

To me, the question is: does Hussein really want a second term? Or is this just Kabuki Theater? As many have said - one guy wins the first debate, the other guy wins the second one, and of course the third is too close to call. I still pray a spirit of confusion and fear descends upon Obama!

The Obama campaign has switched its terminology from "aggressive" to "vigorous'" and "energetic," in expressing his new mode of address this evening. This is to prepare his base that he is not actually going to destroy the alpha man he is debating, but project industrial strenghth charm towards the audience. Ho hum!

Bill allowing concealed weapons
in restaurants passes S.C. House
Post & Courier [Charleston, SC], by Cynthia Roldan*    Original Article

COLUMBIA--A law that allows for concealed weapons permit holders to take their weapons into restaurants that serve alcohol and bars easily passed the South Carolina House of Representatives on Thursday. The 90-18 vote came amid some backlash in the Lowcountry, as many bar and restaurant owners and managers were finding out about the new law. [Snip] Many restaurant managers in Charleston have been greeted by yellow cards labeled, "No Lead with My Drink Please" in protest. If they hope to stop the law, they´ll now have to lobby Gov. Nikki Haley--who has a concealed weapons permit.

What’s so great about Zulu? To answer that question properly, you need to pass this test first. 1) Do you know Men of Harlech off by heart? 2) Can you name at least half of the 11 Victoria Cross winners in the film (by their nicknames where possible) without resorting to Google? 3) Have you ever found yourself stirred to ridiculous feelings of patriotism by John Barry’s magnificent film score on the morning commute? I really hope someone else answers “yes” to all three, otherwise you can chalk me up as a lone madman. Zulu--released 50 years ago this week--is

[Snip] As a result Ridgway and his squadron undertook night operations in the English Channel, laying mines in the harbours of Cherbourg and Le Havre and attacking enemy shipping. The toll was heavy. Within a few weeks the squadron had lost half its aircrew; however, one early success came after Ridgway identified a German convoy which was then attacked and sunk by surface forces. In February 1943 the squadron embarked in Dasher and escorted convoy

US privacy watchdog advises
NSA spying is ´illegal´
BBC News [UK], by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 1/23/2014 6:25:44 AM     Post Reply
The bulk collection of phone call data by US intelligence agencies is illegal and has had only "minimal" benefits in preventing terrorism, an independent US privacy watchdog has ruled. The Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board advised by a 3-2 majority that the programme should end. In a major speech last week, President Barack Obama said he was ordering curbs on the use of such mass data. But he said the US must continue collecting data to prevent attacks. The report from the PCLOB is the latest of several reviews of the National Security Agency´s (NSA) mass surveillance programme, the details of which caused

A record 3,100 people every day are finding work as Britain’s jobless total falls at the fastest rate in 17 years. The number of unemployed tumbled to 2.32million--falling by 167,000 between September and November, the biggest drop since 1997. Yesterday the Office for National Statistics said the unemployment rate is now at 7.1 percent after falling faster than any economist or the Bank predicted. [Snip] In an unusually political statement, the Bank also said the Coalition’s benefits clampdown may have pushed more people into looking for work, rather than continuing to rely on State handouts. It said: ‘A tightening in

More than 11,000 deaths of heart attack patients could have been avoided if British care was as good as Sweden´s, a study has claimed. A third more Britons than Swedes died within a month of having a heart attack, according to the research on half a million patients. Scientists from University College London examined death rates in the two countries between 2004 and 2010. They said a key reason for the striking difference between the two was that British patients are not receiving the best possible treatment.

Wendy Davis, the overnight Democratic Party success story whose hardscrabble roots and Texas-sized abortion rights filibuster made her a household name in June 2013, is in a sudden downward spiral. A day after the Dallas Morning News published a profile of the 50-year-old state senator and gubernatorial candidate that found problems with her public biography, Davis began lashing out at her Republican opponent, state Attorney General Gregg Abbott, complaining that he had never ´walked a day in my shoes.´ Abbott is a paraplegic, confined to a wheelchair from the age of 26 after a tree fell on him during a

Mum was supposed to have her gall bladder removed this week. After 24 hours of starving and worrying, she arrived at the hospital at 6am. [Snip] “Oh, yes, we tried to call you,” said the nurse. “You can go home, Mrs Stanley.

The United States and Gulf countries have been secretly backing efforts by opposition rebels to destroy al-Qaeda´s most extreme wing in Syria, diplomats and rebels involved in the plan have told The Telegraph. As Western leaders publicly push the Syrian regime and the opposition to the Geneva II peace conference that begins Wednesday Washington has also been quietly supporting moves by Saudi Arabia and Qatar to give weapons and cash to rebel groups to fight al-Qaeda´s Islamic State of Iraq and al-Shams (ISIS) in Syria. One source said the US was itself handing out millions of dollars to rebel groups best

High speed double-decker trains carrying thousands of tourists from Moscow to Sochi for next month’s Winter Olympics are feared to be the main targets for devastating terror attacks. Professor Mark Galeotti, a security expert at New York University said the thousand-mile Moscow to Adler railway line is vulnerable to a strike by extremists. He said the route was “an obvious target” as it would be outside Sochi’s ring of steel and be consistent with the tactics of previous terror attacks. An attack during the Games is “inevitable”, he told Express Online. His warning came as Russian authorities issued a major alert for

A popular New Orleans musician is fighting for his life in hospital after being brutally attacked in what is believed to be the latest case of a sick craze known as the knock-out game.

The 54-year-old bass player is now in an induced coma after undergoing intensive brain surgery at University Hospital.

While the administration publicly expresses full confidence in its health care law, privately it fears one part of the system is so flawed it could bankrupt insurance companies and cripple ObamaCare itself. "Week after week, month after month," says John Goodman of the National Center for Policy Analysis, "the Obama administration kept telling us everything´s working fine, there´s no problem and then they turn on a dime and fire their contractor." To justify a no-bid contract with Accenture after firing CGI as the lead contractor, the administration released documents from the Department of Health and Human Services and the Center

The lawyer slated to represent a top Christie Christie aide sacked over the Bridgegate scandal is no longer representing her, MailOnline has learned, leading to speculation that she may be planning to turn on her former boss. The news came on an icy, snow-drifted Tuesday as Christie took his oath of office for a second term as New Jersey´s governor. Walter Timpone, a Christie-linked attorney whom Kelly retained after her public firing, received the subpoena served on her Friday by a New Jersey Assembly special investigative committee. But he is stepping aside because he has a conflict of interest.

Are you dazed and confused by Barack Obama, the nominal Democrat, whose conduct as president since 2009 has seen him sink from nearly 70 percent to 40 percent or less in the national polling, from which he has seemed to learn nothing, but still marches on? Fear not, the doctor is in: Fred Siegel of the Manhattan Institute, whose latest book, The Revolt Against The Masses: How Liberalism Has Undermined the Middle Class, explains all you wanted to know about Obama, and much else. It explains why he never became the new Franklin D. Roosevelt, John F. Kennedy or Lyndon B.

The Pentagon on Wednesday is expected to announce widespread changes to rules governing religious items and religion-based physical attributes that service members can maintain while in uniform — including beards, some religious tattoos, and turbans. NBC News obtained an early draft of the new Department of Defense instruction which states that the military will make every effort to accommodate “individual expressions of sincerely held beliefs” (conscience, moral principles, or religious beliefs) of service members. It goes on to say that unless doing so could have an adverse impact on military readiness, unit cohesion, good order and discipline, health and safety,

In politics, lying is the new sex. Even the lesser sin, exaggeration, is grounds for questions about your suitability to run for office. Americans may be becoming more like the French in tolerating peccadilloes (just ask Rep. Mark Sanford of South Carolina or Sen. David Vitter of Louisiana about surviving a sex scandal), but get a detail wrong about whether you divorced at 21 or at 19, and woe unto you. That’s what happened to Wendy Davis over the weekend. You may know her as the Texas state senator in pink sneakers who delivered an 11-hour filibuster against abortion restrictions in June.

The bare-bones Wendy Davis story — the one without embellishment — is sufficiently inspiring as a matrix for defying expectations. The daughter of a teenage mother and a teenage mother herself, Davis managed to beat the odds by getting a college education and Ivy League law degree, then launching a political career that’s brought her national adulation. But since Davis’ Democratic gubernatorial ambitions caught fire last year, “facts have been blurred” in the retelling of her life’s story, as reported Sunday by this newspaper’s senior political writer, Wayne Slater.

A clear majority of the American people say that the Obama administration is not competent to manage the affairs of the U.S. government, according to a Quinnipiac poll released Wednesday. Those who believe the Obama administration is incompetent weigh in at a clip of 53-42 – a margin of 11 points. In addition, more people believe that the president is not even paying attention to what’s going on than the contrary: 47-45. (That may be because the president finds out about all those “phony scandals” by reading about them in the news.) The president gets a negative score on a

And Mr. Obama’s words have anti-drug leaders worried about negative repercussions among youth.Mr. Obama claimed to The New Yorker magazine that marijuana is no worse than cigarettes or alcohol and he promoted state efforts by Colorado and Washington to legalize marijuana, which remains illegal under federal law.The National Drug Control Policy’s official stance, posted on the whitehouse.gov website, says the opposite of Mr. Obama on all counts.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif insisted Wednesday that the Obama administration mischaracterizes concessions by his side in the six-month nuclear deal with Iran, telling CNN in an exclusive interview that "we did not agree to dismantle anything." Zarif told CNN Chief National Security Correspondent Jim Sciutto that terminology used by the White House to describe the agreement differed from the text agreed to by Iran and the other countries in the talks -- the United States, Britain, France, Russia, China and Germany. "The White House version both underplays the concessions and overplays Iranian commitments" under the agreement that took effect Monday,
