Professor Warren’s Mystery Contract
Washington Free Beacon, by Bill McMorris

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 10/24/2012 5:30:56 AM

Massachusetts Democratic senate candidate Elizabeth Warren garnered a lucrative no-bid contract with the Clinton administration’s Department of Justice (DOJ) one year after advising then-First Lady Hillary Clinton. The Department paid Warren, a Harvard professor, $90,000 for serving as an expert witness over a five month period in 1999 and 2000, documents show. That is an “oddly” large sum given the short time frame and the hourly pay rate DOJ pays witnesses, according to University of Minnesota law professor Richard Painter. “That’s a whale of a contract,” said Painter, who served as chief ethics lawyer for the White House under the Bush administration.

Just think of the rates she could charge if she had a license. BTW, here is a scary, scary, scary thought--in a future Dim admin, she could actually be a nominee for a judgeship, maybe not SCOTUS, but, Federal circuit.

Notice also that this trail leads back to Hillary Clinton, when she was First Lady.

Greg Abbott Responds to Wendy Davis Supporters´
Mocking of His Wheelchair in the Classiest Way
Independent Journal Review, by Emily Hulsey    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 1/25/2014 7:02:29 AM     Post Reply
The Texas governor race catapulted onto the national scene earlier this week, when an undercover video revealed supporters of Democratic candidate Wendy Davis mocking Republican rival Greg Abbott’s use of a wheelchair. Battleground Texas, the group of Davis supporters caught making the comments, naturally denied the video’s validity. Additionally, Davis issued a statement condemning the language used in the video. In an interview with Megyn Kelly, Abbott, who is the attorney general of Texas, responded to the ordeal: Denigrating the disabled is unworthy of Texas….What Texans really look at is the depth of character. There’s a reason why I have been elected

How Chris Christie can
re-launch his second term
Daily Caller, by Kevin Mooney    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 1/25/2014 5:36:33 AM     Post Reply
Contrary to what former Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli and others have suggested, Governor Chris Christie should not step down as chairman of the Republican Governors Association (RGA). So long as he was not complicit in the decision to close off part of the George Washington Bridge this past September, Christie can emerge as an even stronger presidential contender in 2016. But it does mean the New Jersey governor will need to re-launch his second term, by shifting to the right, challenging both political parties and transcending a hostile news media. He’s done it before and he’s done it with considerable

The Human Rights Campaign, the gay rights lobby, is denouncing Gene Schaerr, the Utah attorney defending Utah’s stand on traditional marriage because of his religious convictions. The idea is that his religious beliefs have no place in this discussion. The HRC is trying to drive religious people out of the public square. Law prof Eugene Volokh pushes back: This strikes me as badly wrong, and indeed deeply unfair to religious believers. Lawyers decide to take cases based on their personal moral values all the time.

The Lessons of Wendy Davis’s Success Story

‘I came from a place of struggle,” insisted Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis after the Dallas Morning News revealed that key details of the life story she had successfully shopped to the mainstream media were false. She wasn’t a 19-year-old mom when she was first divorced, but 21. She lived with her second husband in the very comfortable Mistletoe Heights neighborhood of Fort Worth, not in a trailer park made famous in a thousand admiring profiles. She lived in the trailer park for just a few months. One of Ms. Davis’s struggles, apparently, is with the truth. Davis isn’t the first

A few random news items from around the country: Dinesh D’Souza, a prominent conservative filmmaker, was indicted for allegedly violating federal campaign-finance laws. The indictment was “the result of a routine review by the FBI of campaign filings with the FEC by various candidates after the 2012 election for United States senator in New York,” said a spokesman for the US Attorney’s Office. Routine. A Google search for “liberal filmmaker indicted” did not turn up any liberal filmmakers who have been indicted. James O’Keefe, a conservative maker of provocative films, said the New York State Department of Labor had taken an intense

Olympic ‘Black Widow’ Warning

When Russian state police this week issued a “be on the lookout” advisory, or BOLO, for an alleged “black widow” terrorist ahead of the Sochi Olympics, it came as a surprise to many in the press. It was also news to U.S. diplomatic security, despite a series of high-level meetings between Washington and Moscow to coordinate security for the Winter Games. Speaking to reporters Friday, a senior Obama administration official acknowledged that U.S. diplomatic security learned of the warning about Ruzanna “Salima” Ibragimova when the media did. “We have been aware for some time that is a type of attack that has

U.S. Willing to Hold Talks

WASHINGTON — Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. said Thursday that the United States was willing to discuss how the criminal case against Edward J. Snowden would be handled, but only if Mr. Snowden pleaded guilty first. Mr. Holder, speaking at a question-and-answer event at the University of Virginia, did not specify the guilty pleas the Justice Department would expect before it would open talks with Mr. Snowden’s lawyers. And the attorney general reiterated that the United States was not willing to offer clemency to Mr. Snowden, the former National Security Agency contractor who has leaked documents that American officials have

The media have discovered a scandal they can eagerly embrace, and they are off to the races. Having already found him guilty, they are now trying to determine if New Jersey Republican Governor Chris Christie knew about or ordered his underlings to create traffic jams entering the George Washington Bridge, from Ft. Lee, New Jersey into New York City; or to threaten to withhold Superstorm Sandy funds from Hoboken, NJ unless the mayor agreed to play ball with a developer with ties to the governor; or if he created a culture whereby all that could happen. Yet few are asking

Earlier this month, India marked a milestone anniversary: With the passing of its third year without a case of polio, the country is officially considered polio-free. There remain only three countries in the world in which polio is endemic — Nigeria, Pakistan, and Afghanistan — and all three continue to suffer for the same man-made reason. While polio has nearly been wiped out in the rest of the world, it is on the rise in Pakistan, the infected children just more casualties of the endless jihad. The disease also has made what one hopes is a temporary comeback in Syria and

Duncan, S.C. The pungent scent of sauerkraut permeates the room, but Lindsey Graham doesn’t have time to try it, or the pretzels, bratwurst, and schnitzel at the buffet. Each one of the few dozen business types gathered to celebrate the opening of a local chapter of the German-American Chamber of Commerce wants a chance to meet the senator, and Graham is more than eager to chat. An aide brings him a Coke Zero (his favorite), which he sips intermittently. Graham is unassuming in his ordinary gray suit and dusty black shoes. The businessmen mostly look a little sharper.

Today, and every day since December 31, the Little Sisters of the Poor have prayed that the Supreme Court would save them from the choice of violating their faith or exposing their ministry to decimation by IRS penalties. Today their prayers were answered. The Little Sisters of the Poor received an injunction from the Supreme Court protecting them from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) controversial mandate while they have their day in court. The Little Sisters are a 175-year-old order of Catholic nuns dedicated to providing “the neediest elderly of every race and religion a home where

The plot sounds like something out of a horror movie: A ship teeming with diseased, cannibalistic rats drifts toward the British Coast, putting millions of residents at risk. In reality, the Irish Department of Transport said they believe the Lyubov Orlova, a cruise ship that has been adrift for a year in the Atlantic Ocean, has likely sunk due to “adverse weather conditions.” Aidan Glover, a spokesperson for the Department of Transport, said officials arrived at the conclusion after they received “no positive reports or sightings” of the ship. The last signs from the cruise liner were two beacons, which were sent last

The Democrats´ new much-vaunted master plan for annihilating the Tea Party movement calls for aggressive class warfare, demagoguery, and lying about the beliefs, motives, and goals of Tea Party supporters, Sen. Chuck Schumer revealed yesterday. Echoing President Obama´s infamous "bitter clingers" remarks, the New York Democrat argued that Tea Party supporters are cartoonish figures who are easily ridiculed. Invoking all the usual liberal cliches about conservatives, Schumer said the Tea Party is successor to "the Know-Nothings, Prohibitionists, Father Coughlin, and Huey Long." In other words, he believes the movement is a collection of hicks, yahoos, neo-Luddites, fascists, male chauvinists, and racists fearful

Politics: The Obama administration has turned the executive branch loose on its enemies — part of a disturbing and unprecedented trend toward delegitimizing political differences and marginalizing conservatives. Behind the special status of his presidency, President Obama has used the machinery of government to harass and intimidate political opponents — to an extent greater even than former Presidents Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton, both threatened with impeachment. Consider these recent events, courtesy of the Ace of Spades blog: • Attorney General Eric Holder´s Southern District of New York office has indicted conservative author, activist and filmmaker Dinesh D´Souza — producer of the critical

Mitt Romney, Republican Party´s 2012 presidential nominee, on Friday fueled the talk that former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush will join the 2016 GOP race, along with several others including embattled New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Ohio Gov. John Kasich. Ruling out another run during a "Today" show interview, Romney also said that likely Democratic presidential challenger Hillary Clinton is beatable “because I think people recognize that the country is just not doing what it needs to do.” In waving off a third bid, Romney said, “This is a time for Chris Christie, Mike Huckabee, Jeb Bush, Mike Pence, John Kasich,

Maybe it’s because “Bubba” just doesn’t have the same je ne sais quoi as the “Gipper,” but Bill Clinton is apparently jealous of the reverence Republicans give former president Ronald Reagan. According to the much-talked-about New York Times Magazine feature story on the world around Hillary, Bill and Chelsea Clinton, the former president is described as miffed that Democrats don´t treat him like Republicans do Reagan. Amy Chozick reports: “People close to Bill Clinton have told me repeatedly that it irks them that Democrats don’t talk about the dignified, slimmed-down, silver-haired former president with the same reverence Republicans give Ronald Reagan.” Her story,

Attorney General Eric Holder reiterated his 2009 claim that Americans are a “nation of cowards” on racial issues on Thursday. Holder’s effort to profile the entire nation as cowards came during a friendly interview with the University of Virginia’s Miller Center, where was asked if he would take back his 2009 remarks. “I would not take that back,” he replied. As usual, Holder did not brave questions from the audience or from other reporters in the room. In 2009, Holder claimed that “though this nation has proudly thought of itself as an ethnic melting pot, in things racial, we have always been and we

AUSTIN, Texas -- Texas started a trend by making most of its high school students tackle algebra II. But eight years later, the state often watched for education policy is abandoning the requirement. The move is being praised by school districts for affording them more flexibility. But some policy experts are nervous because nearly 20 states have since followed Texas´ lead in requiring the advanced math course. Supporters say fewer curriculum mandates give students more time to focus on vocational training for high-paying jobs that don´t necessarily require a college degree.

Free Speech: The IRS scandal is not only not over but is getting worse, with a call by New York´s senior senator for the already-politicized agency to use its power to tax to destroy the conservative grass-roots movement. Arguing that the Supreme Court´s 2010 Citizens United decision allowed Tea Party groups to "funnel millions of undisclosed dollars into campaigns with ads that distort the truth and attack government," Charles Schumer wants the IRS and other government agencies to take on the Tea Party through their administrative powers.

Want to know why Wendy Davis will have trouble winning higher office in Texas or anywhere else in America? It’s not because she stretched the truth in her “from mobile-home-living single mom to Harvard Law grad” campaign biography, nor because her husband paid for her education, nor even because she placed a lot of value on her career. Nope: It’s because Davis, the Lone Star State senator who became famous for her filibuster of an abortion-limiting bill in Texas, lost custody of her children to her ex-husband. This revelation about Davis’ past, which came to light thanks to reporting by Wayne Slater
