Democrats get elected, insiders
get cash, Americans get nothing

Washington Examiner [DC], by Conn Carroll

Outside of higher taxes on everyone, we don’t know a lot about what President Obama’s second term agenda would look like. But we do know this: it would mean a lot more taxpayer investments in green energy companies. Campaigning in Florida earlier this year, Obama told supporters he would “double-down on a clean energy industry that’s never been more promising.” Never mind the almost 50 faltering or already bankrupt energy companies Obama has already wasted tax payer dollars on. So if Obama’s energy investments aren’t producing any more viable green energy companies., then what are they doing? Electing Democrats

Green energy is just the latest democrat campaign money laundering scheme.

´Planet Hillary´: Clinton cover
prompts critiques
Los Angeles Times, by Morgan Little    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 1/24/2014 4:37:58 PM     Post Reply
The New York Times Magazine for this Sunday depicts former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton as a bizarre-looking planet, inspiring quite a range of reactions. The cover accompanies the story “Planet Hillary” by Amy Chozick, a look at the potential 2016 Democratic presidential front-runner. Clinton, who left her post at the State Department last year, has not confirmed that she will be revving up her second presidential campaign, though that hasn’t stopped supporters from raising funds and preparing for the campaign. The magazine’s design director, Arem Duplessis, said in a blog post that the idea to turn Clinton into a disembodied

Patrick Festa says that after President Barack Obama left his Scranton, Pennsylvania, home following a November 2011 visit, things got “a little creepy.” Friends and neighbors flocked to the house to pose for pictures in the dining room chair where Obama sat for lunch before giving a speech urging a payroll tax-cut extension. Festa and his wife, Donna, kept the president’s used teacup and napkin in the same spot for “too long.” Today, the thrill of that presidential visit has faded amid the financial strains that Festa, 51, a third-grade teacher, says have intensified over the last two years.

As President Obama prepares for his State of the Union speech Tuesday night, he has solicited members of his Cabinet for ideas of executive actions he could take without Congressional approval that would further his goal of tackling income inequality. In the first weeks of January, Obama has repeatedly said he he has a “pen and his phone” and will use them to bypass Congressional gridlock and help his agenda. While White House spokesman Jay Carney said he didn´t want to preview the president´s speech, he said no one should be surprised that he´s going to “reemphasize his capacity” as

   

 

  


 
Newspaper chain plans ´state-by-

A national newspaper chain with nearly 100 publications and 1.6 million readers is considering building “state-by-state databases” on concealed weapons permit holders, according to an internal e-mail. The plan, laid out in an email from a top editor at North Carolina-based Civitas Media, could be similar to a controversial project a New York state newspaper carried out in 2012 which included an online map that identified gun owners in two counties by name and address. Civitas´ database project was detailed the plan in a Jan. 19 e-mail to newsrooms in 11 states, including Ohio, Illinois and Pennsylvania. The newest project

In an interview that has gotten little notice so far, US Attorney General Eric Holder told MSNBC’s Ari Melber that the federal government should intervene and stop states from enforcing voter ID. Holder tells Melber, “Photo ID efforts are done inappropriately and for improper reasons. I think that ought to be the basis for federal intervention.” Melber asks, “So when some Republicans say that voter ID is for election integrity, and thus is different than the history of racial discrimination we’ve seen in this country, they may be of good faith but you think they’re wrong.” Holder replies, “Yeah, there

House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) says he has “no problem” with the Tea Party and that he agrees with them "90 percent of the time.” Boehner appeared on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno last night and told the host, “I don’t have any problem with the Tea Party. Those people have brought great energy to the political process, most of them have never been involved before.” “When you agree with someone 90 percent of the time they’re not your enemy, “ Boehner continued. Earlier in the interview Boehner described himself as “right of center” in characterizing his relationship with

RNC raises $80.6M in 2013

The Republican National Committee raised $80.6 million in 2013, over $7 million of that in December alone, according to the committee’s treasurer, Tony Parker. Parker also announced at the RNC’s annual winter meeting on Friday that the committee has more than $9.2 million cash on hand, over $4 million more than it had in the bank at the close of 2012. The committee remains debt-free. Throughout most of last year, the RNC outraised its Democratic counterpart, but from September through November the Democratic National Committee picked up its pace and outraised the RNC. The DNC has not yet released its December

The former chief of staff to Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn) arrested on child pornography charges last month has been found dead, according to two sources familiar with the matter. Jesse Ryan Loskarn, 35, died in an apparent suicide in his parents´ house in Sykesville, Md., the sources said. Loskarn had been released into his parents’ custody in mid-December after being charged with possession and distribution of child pornography. The U.S. Postal Inspection Service arrested Loskarn last month. It said it had evidence that Loskarn had ordered child pornography through the mail and distributed videos on the Internet. Alexander initially placed

There is plenty of sleazy stuff that isn’t illegal. Many pundits start hyperventilating when a politician comes under investigation. But as an old Justice Department reporter, I know that prosecutors can face a steep hurdle when it comes to getting a conviction. Doing favors for donors, carrying water for lobbyists, strong-arming other politicians — such behavior often falls into a murky zone of unethical behavior that falls short of illegality. There’s a difference between a court of law and the court of public opinion. And two recent probes underscore the point. The U.S. attorney in New Jersey is investigating Chris Christie’s bridge

Former Virginia Republican Gov. Bob McDonnell and his wife Maureen pleaded not guilty Friday to federal corruption charges for allegedly accepting gifts, vacations and loans. The McDonnells were indicted Tuesday on a 14-count indictment that included charges of conspiracy, wire fraud and providing false statements in connection with the McDonnells´ relationship to Jonnie R. Williams, Sr., chief executive of nutritional supplements maker Star Scientific Inc. Their jury trial has been set for July 28. Earlier in the day, both were released on their own recognizance as they await trial. A federal magistrate judge ordered them not to leave the country. The

SAN ANTONIO — Thousands of hearty South Texans, bundled up for warmth, have converged on the parking lot of Cowboys Dancehall for an old-fashioned sunrise party at the 36th annual Cowboy Breakfast. The breakfast tradition, which began in 1979 with tacos being served to a few hundred people from the bed of a pickup outside Central Park Mall, has since grown to crowds of 50,000 or more, even during hard freezes and heavy rain. (Snip) The event celebrates the trail riders of the Old West and has become an unofficial kickoff for the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo, which

MICHIGAN CITY, Ind.- Police say a massive highway pileup in northwestern Indiana has killed three people and injured more than 20 people. Indiana State Police say the pileup on Interstate 94 Thursday afternoon involved about 15 semitrailers and about 15 passenger vehicles and pickup trucks. They say one injured person remained trapped in a vehicle Thursday evening, hours after the pileup began. The accident happened near Michigan City, which is about a 60-mile drive from Chicago. Police say Michigan City has provided two buses that are being used to warm people and transport the injured to hospitals.

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

If there is anything New York doesn´t need it´s more reasons for Empire State residents to flee. Over the last decade (2001-11) New York´s population fell by 1.6 million. Many disgruntled New Yorkers said enough, packed up and left the state. This was a larger population drain than suffered by any other state. Congratulations. That´s why Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo´s declaration that "extreme conservatives ... have no place in the state of New York" was so dumbfounding. Is it just me or does it seem like only yesterday that "progressives" like Mr. Cuomo were lecturing us about embracing "diversity"? As they say in

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

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,

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 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,

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

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,

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
