The Real Mitt Romney — on CBS!
National Review Online, by Benjamin Zycher

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 10/20/2012 5:27:55 AM

This video, on Mitt Romney’s innumerable good deeds, should receive the widest possible attention. On CBS no less:(Snip for video)An interesting question for which I have only an imperfect answer at best: Why did the Obama campaign believe that their months of demonization would work when inevitably the real Romney would emerge at the debates or sooner? Especially because, unlike Senator McCain in 2008, Romney always was going to have the resources to run a formidable campaign. Anyone who watched the Republican primary debates could see that Romney above all is a man of supreme decency, integrity, and modesty.

FTA: "Why did the Obama campaign believe that their months of demonization would work when inevitably the real Romney would emerge at the debates or sooner?" The answer to that question is because none of the people in the Obama campaign believed that the real Romney was a genuinely nice guy, since none of them were.

This is the real story.
Mitt Romney is breaking through Obama's billion dollar smear.
Obama may be detached from reality, but the voters are catching on.

CBS didn't get a cut of the stimulus money? I know, I know..I shouldn't be sarcastic, but then again..

Yes I was really pleased to see this, one can only hope the dam will finally give way and we will begin to return to some semblance of normality.

That prayer stuff really works. We praying people need to redouble our efforts from now until election day and beyond, because unless Romney wins decisively -- as in landslide -- the lawyers will be using their long-anticipated arguments to invalidate the election results.

We don't want another Hanging Chad situation. Not in the present climate of institutionalized thuggery at the highest levels.

#5 Yes, prayer works extraordinarily well everywhere it is sincerely tried

What a great video! And on CBS!

Will wonders never cease.

Yep, must be the prayers of so many Americans asking God to forgive our greed and stupid decisions (among other things), and to heal our wonderful nation.

Landslide 2012!

I'm dumbfounded. What's CBS's motivation ?

Guilt? Fear of Obie winning? Kiss up to new boss?
It was clear the CBS reporter (Armen Kartadian sp? iirc) helped get this segment on air....despite Norah O'Donnell's protests I'll wager. Notice she wasn't on set.

Obie's got nothing left if his media firewall crumbles.

What a great video! Thanks for posting, OP. Had to look at it twice to see if it was really CBS. Good for them. Don't know the reason they did this, but whatever it is, I hope millions of people see it. IMO, the obama campaign thought their demonization of Mitt Romney would work because that is how THEY see him and just assumed everyone else would agree with them... Big Mistake!

Here's a great Romney ad to counter the Husseiniacs. Two separate pictures of the candidates:

The first will be having Mitt holding a blue binder (open of course) saying to a young woman, "I believe that you'll be perfect for the position!"

Hussein will be holding a pack of rubbers and saying to a middle-aged woman, "Here's part of your ballot stipend!"

I listen to a lot of talk radio, and the local station that carries Rush and Sean is part of the CBS Radio network. Naturally their hourly news breaks are done by CBS. Just in the last couple of days, I've noticed - and starkly so - that they're reporting polls that show Romney up by great margins.

Now, either they're in on a set-up of some kind, or preparing their drones for what they see coming, or like an earlier poster said - they want to get on the good side of the new boss.

I have long thought that Barcky doesn't really know what his administration has done. He seems dumbfounded to hear statistics that reveal the depth of the damage his czars and regulators are inflicting on this country. It's as if he's reliving the 40s, 50s, 60s, when his program targets really were struggling. War on women? Huh?

(Great video! How fun that the video is sponsored by Goldman Sachs regarding the human genome - heh..... they're still wanting to push us into an untenable futuristic existence.)

Incidentally, the title of the book, The Mormon Way of Doing Business, doesn't say it all..... you may not agree with their religious tenets, but they truly are the last most decent people around. It was the Mormon bankers who financed and built Las Vegas and much of the West, for what that's worth. Harry Reid is not the face of Mormonism...Mitt Romney IS.

They were not the only ones who did not know the real Mitt Romney. For months people on this site told us he was a RINO, a snake, that there was no difference between Romney and Obama, and that we might arrive at socialism a little slower under Romney. We, his supporters, were Romneybots. "Oh, the Romneybots are active today". Where are these oh so sure pundits now?

Mitt Romney will not stand before the crowds and act as if he were a god. He is not the Roman temple type. Mitt is a humble man whose achievements and good deeds have been considered private family matters.
..... However, since Obama and his Marxist buddies have attempted to convince people that Mitt is one of 'those evil white rich guys,' whose goal in life is to stomp all the needy .... others have begun to step forward to discuss the real Mitt Romney.
I love it that he will reap from his good deeds.
So, too, will Obama reap from his MISdeeds.

And yes, that is Gayle King, Oprah's best friend. Does everyone recall how Michelle shoved Oprah out of the president's life? The first lady doesn't like fat people!

Oooops.

The reason for painting Romney with the nasty brush can be found in Obama's concept of running a campaign. He said in 2008 that if you can't run on your record you paint your opponent as someone to run away from. He can't run on his record.

I know Mormons are cliquish but then a lot of religious groups are. I know they stick with their own mostly and aren't much for associating outside their faith. But every Mormon I have ever known was very nice, very decent, and had a good work ethic. I will never understand the caffeine thing, but that is their choice. I think Romney will bring decency back to the White House. I am with #5 & 6. I may not be religious (follow a man-made religion) but I am spiritual and believe in God. I truly believe in the power of prayer and have asked God to forgive us as a nation for losing our way and to give us another chance to find our way back. I surely hope this is our chance and we don't blow it.

Really refreshing to see Mitt talked about in an unbiased, logical fashion on one of the alphabets for a change. Color me shocked! I can't remember the last time I saw something like this on Broadcast TV, but then I pretty much stopped giving them any time at all. I suspect that they (CBS) are seeing the writing on the wall: "Mitt Wins" and they are aligning themselves to it to re-enforce their credibility. How long that continues remains to be seen, but I'll take it while it's there.

#15 - We are here and voting for Romney. And I, for one, have been pleasantly surprised. Is he as conservative as I would prefer? No. But he may GOVERN conservatively, and God knows he'll be LIGHT YEARS better than who's there now. Also, whatever my thoughts of his politics/beliefs, I have always believed him to be a fine, upstanding, decent man, and I'm thrilled to see that borne out.

#1 - Dear Lord, but your analysis is just breathtakingly accurate!!!!!!! I salute you!!!

Romney is genuine. There is nothing fake or manufactured. He is such a contrast to Obie who has hidden behind the teleprompter and a protective msm to skate through his term. If Romney can do one thing in his first administration, it would be to start setting the example to get America to re-point its morale compass. Obviously it is pointed the wrong way today especially with Obie's approach which is the directive for us to worship and have faith in the State rather than the Creator.

As has happened before in America, the right guy at the right time has risen to the top. Why does this happen??? Because Americans are smart folks who can think for themselves and know how to fix problems like the Won we have in Washington right now.

#15. Let's not be like the Obama people and act like mindless groupies. Romney is hands down an improvement over Obama but he still has flaws as a candidate. Indeed that was the theme of the the discussion.

After I help him get elected I am prepared for an equally long and hard fight to keep Romney from drifting to the left -as he is wont to do.

The television screen can often tell the truth -- that is -- when the filter of the editors is lifted -- such in the case with candy crawly. The bias was exposed and the "true" Mitt came through....

Like Miller of O'Reilly mix said -- "he's a good man"....

It's shining through......

God Bless President Romney and keep him safe.

Maybe the light bulb has come on at CBS.
Brent Bozell of the Media Research Center wrote this week in one of his emails regarding network reporting on Beghazi:

On CBS Evening News, correspondent Jan Crawford devoted a full story to President Obama's deceptive claim that he called the Benghazi attack an "act of terror” early on, noting the administration's refusal to call it a terrorist attack for many days. She also called out Crowley for bolstering Obama's lie.


In response, I just released the following public statement.


"Jan Crawford and CBS News deserve credit for exposing Obama's deception and criticizing CNN's Candy Crowley for her role in validating the President's lie. This is unquestionably a major issue, and CBS covered it correctly.


"It is outrageous, reprehensible, and indefensible that ABC News and NBC News are blatantly pushing Obama's re-election by refusing to report real news.


"But America is seeing this. NBC and ABC have no credibility.”


Thanks for all that you do.


Sincerely,


L. Brent Bozell III

The reason most Americans don't see this was stated in Mitt's joke at the Alfred Smith dinner: it is the MSM job to make sure none of us know about what good deeds he does or wants to do. The MSM are seditious, evil people who are more dangerous to this republic than the people who killed our ambassador & other Americans.

I gather Mitt Romney is humbled and doesn't want to brag. Wealth is not something you should be ashamed of. It is what you do with your wealth that is important. That falls in line with how charitable of a person you are. Giving should not be mandated by the government but should come from the heart. Cheerful giver? I also like the stories where people give anonymously because of the sincerity.

There is a problem though. A large number of people in this nation are not godly, are not moral and are not responsible or accountable and refuse to believe there will be consequences for their actions.
Obama is the ICON of this attitude and for this kind of lifestyle. I might add, Bill Clinton was and is that ICON too.
Romney is the ICON of all that is decent, right and good, godly, moral, responsible and expects others to be also. He is not the man who represents the irresponsible crowd and never will be so he will never get their vote. They would rather vote for a loser that represents them and their perverted view of liberty and freedom, than vote for someone who expects them to be responsible; responsible for themselves, for the children the produce and for the loans they make.
The real question is America responsible enough to vote for a man who represents responsibility or will they vote for the "one" who doesn't.

To think the vast majority of Americans want a person who believes there are consequences for our actions, is a bit naive and wishful thinking.

#15 I was one of the people on this site calling Romney a RINO...although I doubt I ever typed "Romneybot".

Right now Romney is sounding satisfactorily conservative, and I'm pretty sure he wants to turn the economy around the way that other "not-quite-a-conservative" George W. Bush did. Good. It will work.

I don't like Romney's interest in nationalized health care...but if he DOES keep his interest pinned to the state level it will be less damaging. Truly national competition among insurance companies (tort reform and transportability) will yield the best health insurance overall.

I will vote for Romney and I have donated to his campaign. I would prefer a true conservative running this year...and that is the reason I donated to many good Republicans in the Primary, but never to Romney.

In the enthusiasm for Romney (we are ALL looking for our "Long National Nightmare" to be over), we must remember that Romney has yet to prove that his actions will meet his currently conservative rhetoric.

Glenn Beck did a special on his TV program a couple of weeks ago. He talked to several people who had been helped by Mitt over the years. The stories are incredible. The deeds did not just consist of money benefits, but of his time and that of his whole family.

I just read response #15 - - and I hope Lucianne allows me to respond to it - - since I'm the one who once bemoaned the "Romneybots" - - and I had my posting privileges temporarily suspended for doing so.

Let's put it in context. During the nearly endless Republican primary season - - this board was used by professional Romney supporters - - the Romneybots - - to slam his competition and smear those who supported them.

I resented their tactics - - their abuse of this board - -and I did my best to point this out to fellow L-dotters - - much to my own detriment.

As soon as Romney became Zippy's official opponent - - I urged everyone to support his candidacy - - even if they had to put clothespins on their noses when they went into the voting booth. I still believe that Romney is too wishy-washy on most issues - - Milquetoast Milt - - but that he's benefiting greatly from the fact that he's Not-Zippy.

I continue to support his candidacy - - but reserve the right to be critical when he does dumb things - - like the China-bashing which we'll see on Monday night.

So - - that's who we are - - and where we were - - and where we are now. The End.

If CBS were smart, they would restructure their whole news dept to that of the FOX News model...fair and balanced. If not, their ratings will continue to be at the bottom of the heap and they could be headed for a BK. In a perfect world, It would be great if some rich conservative group would buy them out.

Also, since the handwriting on the wall is getting clearer each day. The CBS news outlet would be smart to get friendly with the next new President Romney. Moreover, they should start listening to the people who are tired of the bias and contentiousness from the major networks. It's a turnoff.
They should also 86 Katie Couric's new show. Why.., because she represents that old liberal elitism that most people have come to dislike immensely. She a liberal dinosaur... a feminazi.

CBS has a responsibility to their shareholders to clean their house and get their act together with new fresh ideas and faces and they should start at the top.

I feel somewhat caustic about revelations like this from people who have published or verbalized the WH/liberal agenda for decades. Perhaps they have seen the writing on the wall as far as this election goes and have decided to go with the flow this time around. Remember how it was with George W. Bush. They trashed him incessantly and so are part and parcel of the Obama legacy of debt and destruction.

This is only one small segment on CBS. The national "news" as they claim on their radio stations is nothing but digustingly biased as they report everything in terms of their ideas of "success" of the Obama(democrat)agenda. Even though I listen to Beck, Hannity, and Rush on our local CBS station, I have to turn off the CBS news because it is so "off the wall" liberal bias!

When I think back over the primaries it's now very, very clear that Mitt was our strongest candidate. We knew that the Chicago slimeballs would play very, very dirty, but Mitt's armor is intact. Go Mitt.

Wow! CBS, yet. It looks like the MSM -- or some of it, anyhow -- is about to jettison their load of Obama. Was the Benghazi atrocity and the subsequent muckup the proximate cause? Or were they beginning to tire of the incompetence, the doubletalk, the boasting, the imperial pretensions, the backwater socialism, the Chicago thuggery, etc. even before Benghazi?

#15 -- We're still right here, and should --please God -- Romney be elected, we'll be watching to see if he -- as he promised --repeal Obamacare, if he does do something to reduce the size of the Federal Government and get its foot off our necks, etc. etc. Whatever -- even if he does nothing more than administer the Byzantine mess that Washington has come to be, Romney will be, I concede, ten thousand times better than the malignant phoney now occupying the presidency.

Romney looks better each day, despite the RINO connection with corrupt Republicans.
What a great idea: an extremely bright, exemplary citizen and family man, who is top of the line successful in business...
and not a lawyer. Wow. Sounds good. Let's hope he really does eliminate the wasteful in his aquisitions training mode.
Let's hope he attacks the bankrupting Fed,
wipes out federal having ANYthing to do with education, demolishes FEMA EPA dept
of Interior, energy, Commerce, housing, urban development, all these money wasting useless breaucracies that just go on and on.
EMPTY OUT all those marble buildings and ope the doors for a national headquarters for free enterprise trade and technical training schools operated without any tax subsidies(maybe just a low rent subsidy).

Just to refresh everyone's memories about Mitt's history:

He earned a Bachelor of Arts in English with highest honors, in 1971,[46] giving commencement addresses to both the College of Humanities and to the whole of BYU.[nb 7]

He graduated in 1975 cum laude from the law school, in the top third of that class, and was named a Baker Scholar for graduating in the top five percent of his business school class

Bain Capital's first significant success was a 1986 investment to help start Staples Inc

The firm invested in or acquired Accuride, Brookstone, Domino's Pizza, Sealy Corporation, Sports Authority, and Artisan Entertainment

In 1990, facing financial collapse, Bain & Company asked Romney to return.[69] Announced as its new CEO in January 1991,[73][74] he drew a symbolic salary of one dollar. Within about a year, he had led Bain & Company through a turnaround and returned the firm to profitability

Romney took a paid leave of absence from Bain Capital in February 1999 to serve as the President and CEO of the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympic Games Organizing Committee. the Games ended up with a surplus of $100 million

In 2010, he and his wife gave $3 million to charity

Romney has received five honorary doctorates

As governor, He declined a governor's salary of $135,000 during his term





'Nuff said ?

#67, I say it's more a case that they're realizing no one is buying their malarkey any longer. The public knows the press lied for years about Obama to protect him, and now that it is blatantly obvious how much of a failure he is, they are desperately trying to regain some credibility (hah!) by finally telling some of the truth about him.

Although Obama and his surrogates have demonized Romney for months, his essential intelligence, decency, and modesty had to come out for all to see in the debates, putting the lie to the Obama campaign caricature of him.

Those in my own immediate family remember my near conversion to the Mormon faith in the late 1970s, and will also remember how impressed I was by these people. To a man and a woman, they were patriotic, moral, honest, and hard working. Ultimately, I couldn't accept their church doctrine--I am an evangelical Christian, after all--but I did and always will admire them. Voting for Romney is one of the easiest choices I have ever had to make. May his presidency help this country out of the morass into which it has fallen.

Romney has always struck as intelligent and competent. There is alot to like about him.

Wait and see if behaves like a moderate or a conservative. If he is a moderate he will try to find a middle ground with the left. Problem with that is there is no middle ground with extremists and tyrants. I think he will realize that. If he is an honest man he will not bargain with them.

I don't believe that our nation is so cynical that we don't think good people exist. We are just so beat up, we don't believe good politicians exist.

Why campaigns don't understand that the truth will eventually out baffles me. In the case of Obama, that has taken a terribly long time, but out it comes. In the case of Romney, the truth is welcome and it is finally being heard.

There are keyboard wizards up and down this forum. Circulating this video should be a piece of cake.

Romney appears to be a good judge of people and for that reason I am eagerly looking forward to his announcements of his Cabinet choices. These people will have an influence on his decisions and style of governing.

But before we get that far, we need to GOTV. We are not safe from the Chicago thugs or Valerie Jarrett until Nov. 7.

I don't know much about Mormons or their faith but I do know what happened when I moved to Arizona. My husband got a really bad flu right after we started the move and I drove the BIG truck full of stuff. When we got here he was very sick and I had no idea how I'd get the stuff from the truck to the house! A friend said she'd find someone to help. Two Mormon guys came, unloaded, put everything where I wanted it, even set up the beds. They absolutely refused any money. I was amazed. I've never seen then again, have no idea who they were.

''I just read response #15 - - and I hope Lucianne allows me to respond to it - - since I'm the one who once bemoaned the "Romneybots" - - and I had my posting privileges temporarily suspended for doing so.''

Poster #51, like many of US long time posters were caught up early in the surge that our ideas didn't matter [Texas primary was so late that Romney was already ''the Guy'' when I voted], as a conservative Republican, and that yet once again, we would pick someone the dRATS were sure was as close to them [like McPain in 2008].

My first job so many years ago in LA was as a R&D tech for a man who was a Mormon.

I really never ''knew'' Mitt Romney until the last two debates. As is the way of 0bama & his dRATS boot-lickers [the LSM], they kept Romney's true ideas shielded from me & the voters who might lean toward him. 0bama never really mentally showed up at either debate, because he's been too lazy to do the job that so many of his ilk thought would bring the hope & change nirvana [failed socialism] to our Blessed Country.

I am thankful now for NBC, ABC, CBS, PBS or any of the talking points venues that put on these debates to discredit our candidates. As with Sarah Palin, your attacks at Mitt are ''personal,'' and just a lame attempt to obfuscate US, the voters in this dangerous world, from the bad economy, 0bamaCare, terrorism, etc.

If a GOP man [or woman] running for the Presidency can't stand up to your BIAS & bullying for all to see, what will he do when in private with REAL ''world leaders?'' [We already heard Bambi ''off mike'' with the Russians].

Sometimes I question the length of the campaign but it is times like this, that I am convinced that it is needed. The truth and character of a candidate, especially a man of modesty and humilty takes a while to be known by the electorate, but now, what do we have. A very very strong chance that the trend is going our way and with good reason. Incidently, do you have the feeling that the Won is really hoping that he loses, he is ilprepared fot this job and should be happy to resume his natural position, community activist.

I've noted before here that the media in general seems to have more of a secret soft spot for Mitt compared to previous GOP nominees (please note the "in general" - as it is indeed not usually apparent). Good to know about Jan Crawford - she's always been relatively fair, like J Tapper). Since she is surely respected by fellow journalists based on her great (and fair) reporting for PBS on SCOTUS, I wonder if she is in any way partly responsible for creating an environment in which a video like this could arise).

As for the comment above that Mormons are clannish - the ones I grew up with in my small southern town were not so any more than the Baptists and Methodists - and I don't 'think' it was just because there were not that many of them to hang out with. They were normal in every way and one of the closest friends of my life was one of them, and my parents were friends with his parents. I don't think it's fair to characterize them that way, but maybe I'm wrong. And if some of them are, maybe it can be forgiven based on the prejudice against them on the part of many mainstream Christians.

As for the Romneybots - I took up for them during the pre-nomination process, out of gratitude for their fervent and sometimes rapid support of the most viable candidate from the beginning - I recently came to understand the loud complaints of the Newt's & Santorum's supporters, when the #1 Romneyista attacked me recently, completely unjustly and out of the blue. Anyway.. onward & upward...

"Romneybot" was and is an ugly and offensive term. The implication is mindless actions and words. And an earlier poster described "professional" Romney supporters, which obviously indicates payment. There were many of us who simply liked, admired and supported Governor Romney from the beginning. We knew what we were doing and there was no need for money. I'm very happy that some of those who used the terms are now supporting Romney. Welcome on board.

Reply 51, I am No. 15 and I never "smeared" anyone. Nor did any other Romney supporter. I never took any money and never was offered any money. I don't believe any one was. I find the accusation offensive.

While someone has admitted calling Romney a RINO no one has admitted calling him a "snake" which was done over and over again. I resent that also.

I am not a Romney worshipper. No man should receive worship. That's reserved for God. However, I do want justice for this good man

It's really nice, though, that you are voting for him.

The Growing Financial Disaster of Obamacare
Power Line, by John Hinderaker    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/19/2014 5:55:20 PM     Post Reply
President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come. It is quite possible that the ACA is

“Am I going to be an outcast?” A friend, who recently moved to an upscale neighborhood in Madison, Wis., called me last week to ask if she would be able to make mommy friends if she continued feeding her children — gasp! — non-organic food. She had just come back from the park where two mothers were discussing a recent vacation to a resort in Puerto Rico. One told the other that there, for the first time, her toddler was given Jif peanut butter. He loved it. Prior to that he had only had Whole Foods peanut butter, which (one might

White House asks American parents to

Daily Caller, by Eric Owens    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/19/2014 5:50:04 PM     Post Reply
In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

In Elizabeth Warren’s new book, A Fighting Chance, Warren claims to be “hurt and angry” that people criticized her claim to be Native American, specifically Cherokee. Warren blamed the Scott Brown campaign, the local Republican Party, and “some blogger.” In fact, Warren has no one to blame but herself for her false claim to be Cherokee.

It’s been nine years since the Supreme Court, expressing their decision in the writings of John Paul Stevens, decided to fundamentally change the Takings Clause of the constitution in the case of Kelo v. City of New London. On this auspicious anniversary, a diarist at Redstate decides to take a fresh look at how wonderfully that exercise in freedom worked out for the citizens, and what they received in exchange for their liberties. The Kelo ruling was controversial and precedent-setting because, under eminent domain, the government may seize the property of a private citizen when it’s deemed necessary for public use

MONROEVILLE, Pa.—When the Texas Wesleyan Rams arrived here this month to defend their 10 straight national titles, the 14 players and coaches wore navy blue and gold track suits and carried matching bags. The walkie-talkies worn on the hips of tournament personnel crackled to life: "Texas Wesleyan has entered the building." The opposing teams,?most of whom brought only a handful of players, some in a mishmash of college sweatshirts,?stopped to watch in awe and dread. "We are the New York Yankees of table tennis," said Texas Wesleyan University Coach Jasna Rather. "Everybody hates our guts."

On upcoming trip, Obama

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama will leave Tuesday for a four-nation trip to Asia, looking to recharge a focus on the region, an ambitious initiative that’s been sidetracked by domestic politics and international conflicts elsewhere. Yet even as Obama attempts to boost his effort to emphasize U.S. interest in Asia, Russian President Vladimir Putin’s intervention in Ukraine is complicating efforts to reassure Asian nations _ which share the region with an increasingly assertive China - that the U.S. is committed to their security. The administration’s efforts to refocus U.S. policy toward Asia were already being questioned in the region with the

While the media is obsessed with the Koch brothers this campaign season, a billionaire hedge fund manager from San Francisco just bought off the White House to the tune of $100 million in order to delay the Keystone XL pipeline decision. From Fox News: The Obama administration once again has punted on a final decision for the Keystone XL pipeline, announcing ahead of the holiday weekend it is extending a key review period indefinitely — a move that could push off a determination until after the midterm elections.

A painting of President Barack Obama by a shock artist with a rape fetish hung in the White House for at least two years. Artist David Choe, known for his graffiti and shock art, rose to minor fame after drawing the murals in Facebook’s first offices. He hosts a Vice show centered on hitchhiking, has shown Anthony Bourdain around Los Angeles on Bourdain’s CNN show, “Parts Unknown,” and one of his paintings graced the walls of the White House from at least 2008-2010. But Choe also has a rape fetish. On the podcast that he co-hosts with porn star Asa Akira, he

One of the Obama administration’s favorite themes is the idea that Republicans have been waging a “war on women.” Though Democrats may overestimate the appeal of this canard, the notion that troglodyte conservatives seek to send American women back to the 19th century has become a form of conventional wisdom, especially in the liberal mainstream media. But though that war is a piece of fakery rooted in the confusion between political liberalism and gender equality, there is little doubt about the reality of another war on women: the one that is being waged by left-wing ideologues against any female Republican

Turning the tables remains the first refuge of liars called on their mendacity. “I was hurt,” Elizabeth Warren relays in her new autobiography, “and I was angry.” The second-year senator speaks of her 2012 political opponent using her claims of Native American ancestry against her during the campaign. Elizabeth Warren could pass for Bull Connor’s sister. She couldn’t pass for Sitting Bull’s second cousin five times removed. So when the 2012 debate descended into genealogists arguing over whether Warren’s great-great-great grandmother was or wasn’t partly Cherokee, the law-professor-turned-candidate winning the question meant that she had already lost it.

Some good folks are pig-biting mad about my recent article noting that the rate of foreclosures has dropped dramatically as a result of the reinflation of the real estate market.(Snip for tweet)Some of the vituperation is coming from the usual gang of housing justice fairness activists incensed that anybody (let alone a majority of homeowners and experts) would oppose the practice of giving public assistance to people who borrowed money with no intention of paying it back. But a lot of the abuse stems from a sentiment I agree with — that declaring victory on mortgage defaults means you have

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

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.

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

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

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

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

Conservative columnist Ann Coulter — who used her talk show platform in the last presidential election cycle to campaign hard for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney — has taken up the mantra once again, calling on Republicans to give the failed White House bidder another shot in 2016. She made the suggestion during a discussion on Sean Hannity’s radio show while speaking of her new book, “Never Trust a Liberal Over 3-Especially a Republican.” Ms. Coulter also addressed the question of Mr. Romney’s shortcomings by saying that his 2012 loss wasn’t entirely his fault. “I think too much blame, not only in this
