The U.S. Election is a
Referendum on Civilization

American Thinker, by Daren Jonescu

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 11/6/2012 8:07:33 AM

That the election of November 6, 2012, has the potential to be a definitive moment in American history is now almost a truism. This conception may sound overblown to the ignorant and disengaged, but in fact it is a great understatement. As America is the only nation left in which freedom is still on the ballot, this definitive U.S. election means even more, in truth, than most voters may realize. It is a referendum on the survival of modern civilization.

At issue is whether it is in our DNA to remain free. Even the Founders were highly suspect.

A longish article but the meat of it is in the last six or seven paragraphs. I told my spousal unit when we arose this AM that this day is probably the most important day in the history of the world. We are "that" close to being extinct as a free nation and how that affects world civilization. The end of this article drives that idea home.

#3, so well spoken. Either we rise or we fall, and it's today that that answer will be given.

Well, #3, I'd put it at the third most important day in the history of the world. But it is the most important one in the past two thousand years or so.

Obamacare´s Architect Talks
about the Law´s Making
American Thinker, by Peter Wilson    Original Article
Posted By: magnante- 3/12/2014 9:24:07 AM     Post Reply
Ezekiel Emanuel – brother of Rahm, with whom he shares a charm deficiency – shared his behind-the-scenes stories in the recent Wall Street Journal essay “Inside the Making of Obamacare.” To my ear, Emanuel’s abrasiveness and arrogance in his radio and television appearances undermine his defense of ObamaCare, and this piece of writing likewise does little to improve my opinion of President Obama or his signature law. Emanuel is often called the “the architect of ObamaCare.” Although no one person put together the Rube Goldberg contraption of a law, Emanuel was certainly a key player. He describes his role in the

   

 

  


 
Breeders: How Gay Men
Destroyed the Left
American Thinker, by Robert Oscar Lopez    Original Article
Posted By: magnante- 3/11/2014 8:44:16 AM     Post Reply
Recently I watched the documentary Breeders, which I recommend to everyone – gay and straight, liberal and conservative. The documentary, produced by Jennifer Lahl at the Center for Bioethics and Culture, exposes the ethical dangers posed by the practice known as “surrogacy.” Surrogacy is the use of a contract, by which a woman agrees to carry a gestating child in her womb for another party (usually an infertile heterosexual couple or a gay male couple), and also agrees to abandon the child to the couple who has engaged her services. Compensated surrogacy means that the carrier is paid to rent out her

Echoes of Edward R. Murrow

CBS News has lost its strongest claim to be a fair and non-partisan news source with the departure of Sharly Atkisson from the network. The award-winning reporter has been squeezed-out because of her reporting on investigative themes inconvenient to the Obama administration (snip)like Sharyl Atkisson, Murrow eventually resigned from CBS News as his air time dimished because of the controversies his fearless reporting engendered. According to biography of then-CBS President William Paley, the network head said that did not want a constant stomach ache every time Murrow covered a controversial subject. No doubt, David Rhodes has had similar ailments over

Will the Obamas return to Chicago and live in their Hyde Park mansion? (snip)Sneed hears speculation that President Barack Obama and wife Michelle — who Sneed bets will not move back into their Hyde Park home when he leaves office — will likely let their residence become part of the proposed University of Chicago presidential library system. A probable tour site? Betcha. My question is: what will happen to the part of the yard that was purchased by Tony Rezko, so as to knock-down the purchase price paid by then-Senator Obama?

A law so stupid California legislature
seeks to repeal it two months after it took effect

California’s state legislature is seeking to repeal an idiotic law that took effect January 1st. It turns out that some feel-good regulatory efforts generate enough blowback that they can actually be reversed. Stacy Finz reports in the San Francisco Chronicle: State lawmakers have passed a new food safety law that they wish they hadn´t. Anyone working in a California restaurant or bar who prepares ready-to-eat food - from bagels to sushi to fruit salad to cocktails - has to wear gloves or use deli tissue, spatulas or tongs. But the new rule, which went into effect Jan. 1, has had so much

The disappearance in the Gulf of Thailand of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 to Beijing, China after 2 hours 5 minutes of normal flight has all the trademarks of a terrorist attack against China by Al Qaeda. China’s Ministry of Defense on November 30th began militarily enforcing an expanded Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ) covering the oil rich Diaoyu/Senkaku Islands in the East China Sea and was about to claim a new ADIZ covering the oil-rich Spratly/Nansha Islands in the South China Sea. These ADIZs are highly contested by Japan, Vietnam, the Philippines, and South Korea. The loss of Flight 370

Malaysia Airlines mid-air horror

The specter of a modern long range jumbo jet suddenly falling from the sky with no distress call suggests horrific causes. (snip)There are only a few possible causes of the sudden disappearance of a modern airliner. None are comforting: Some kind of equipment malfunction that completely preoccupied the crew and led to a sudden crash. This almost never happens, but did occur in the case of Air France 447 lost in the South Atlantic on the way from Rio de Janeiro to Paris, when ice crystals apparently led to the auto pilot shutting off, and crew mistakes coping with the situation

The Marriage of Obama´s Parents:
´In Name Only´?
American Thinker, by Shawn Glasco    Original Article
Posted By: magnante- 3/8/2014 9:08:19 AM     Post Reply
Barack Obama´s parents were "married in name only," according to David Maraniss´s 2012 Barack Obama: The Story. But since definitions of an "in name only" marriage vary, such as "a marriage of convenience" or "a sexless marriage," and Maraniss failed to explain his claim, it is unclear what he was implying. Therefore, Obama´s oft-told nativity story must be searched for the full implications of Obama´s parents´ "in name only" marriage. (snip) So when did Ann´s and Obama Sr.´s "whatever happened happened fast" wedding happen? For no apparent reason, confusion abounds among Obama´s biographers over the wedding date:

Hey libs, it’s happening. The first state has passed a resolution to convene a constitutional convention and right the balance between the federal and state governments.

Oops! Was Section 8

One of the pillars of liberal social engineering is the belief that subsidies permitting poor people to move into nicer neighborhoods helps improve their life prospects. The multi-billion dollar Section 8 rent voucher program is premised on this notion, providing taxpayer funding for poor people to rent apartments in buildings and neighborhoods that house wealthier people.(snip) But a new large study funded by the federal government (who else?) has discovered that moving poor boys into richer neighborhoods is so disruptive that its effects are like those of PTSD

Democrats Unleash the IRS Tyrant
American Thinker, by Karin McQuillan    Original Article

Lois Lerner did not flinch from using the IRS to persecute conservative citizens groups and corrupt the 2012 election. Once again she has taken the Fifth rather than come clean to Congress about what the IRS did to squelch the Tea Party and others, and who ordered it. President Obama brazenly lies to Bill O’Reilly’s face and says there’s not a smidgeon of scandal. This is an unrepentant crew. Obama is channeling Clinton’s famous hair-splitting on whether oral sex is sex. It all depends how you define scandal. Since Democrats believe they have the right to use the IRS to persecute

Obamacare architect Ezekiel Emanuel has made two damning admissions about Obamacare, and he doesn’t even know it. Last year I wrote about Ezekiel Emanuel becoming a “favorite” of mine for his obnoxious and unpersuasive attempts to explain and support Obamacare. He is so arrogant that he presumes rationalizations that work for him will equally persuade others, because, after all, he so much more intelligent than everyone else that his logic is impeccable. Writing in the New York Times yesterday, Zeke told Americans, in an op-ed titled “In Health Care, Choice Is Overrated.” that they really don’t need to have as

On “The O’Reilly Factor” on Tuesday night, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer criticized President Barack Obama for his foreign policy but downplayed the effects of Obama’s interview with Zach Galifianakis in a Funny or Die video on Russian President Vladimir Putin of Obama. “I think it’s a kind of arrogance,” Krauthammer said. “He thinks he has a good foreign policy.

St. Petersburg, Florida- In the first major ballot box test of 2014, the GOP won. Republican David Jolly edged out Democrat Alex Sink to win Tuesday´s special election in Florida´s 13th Congressional District. Jolly will fill out the term of his former boss, Republican Rep. Bill Young, who died in October. Young, first elected to Congress in 1970, was the longest-serving Republican in the House. With national Republicans framing the race as a referendum on Obamacare and a massive infusion of outside ad money to try to influence the outcome, pundits have looked to the Florida race as a bellwether

The Oregon owners of a 22-pound housecat who trapped them in their bedroom after attacking their baby say they´re not giving up on their pet and are getting it medical attention and therapy. Two days after police arrived to subdue the 4-year-old Himalayan cat, owner Lee Palmer of Portland said he´s taking the feline to a veterinarian. A pet psychologist also is due at the house to see the cat, named Lux. "We´re not getting rid of him right now," Palmer said. "He´s been part of our family for a long time."

You have probably seen all of the ridiculous speculating about the GOP nomination in 2016. This is still speculating, but my sincere hope is you don’t think it’s ridiculous too. Kentucky Senator Rand Paul is laying the foundation for his presidential bid in concrete and steel. First, forget about Jeb Bush unless you want to hand Hillary eight years in the White House. The latest Rasmussen poll shows her leading Jeb in a general election 47 percent to 33. His name is Bush and to the general public the specifics of how smart he is doesn’t matter one iota. Then there’s Ted Cruz,

Beyoncé and Jennifer Garner are among the prominent women taking a stand against the term "bossy" and what it stands for in regards to female empowerment. "Being labeled something matters," Garner, 34, says in a promotional video for the campaign. The effort against discouraging girls from leadership is a joint push from the Girl Scouts of America and the Lifetime network. The PSA also includes participation from Jane Lynch, Condoleezza Rice, Diane von Furstenberg, Secretary of Education Arne Duncan and "Lean In" author Sheryl Sandberg.

How would you feel if a police officer you knew for 20 years told you that if an order were issued to confiscate your guns, he wouldn’t hesitate to “kick your door in”? This was the precisely the experience Connecticut resident, Navy veteran and former firefighter John Cinque had after commenting on his state’s 2013 violation of the Second Amendment. The law in question criminalizes the sale of magazines holding more than 10 rounds and also certain semi-automatic rifles, and mandates that all grandfathered weapons and magazines must be registered with the state.

A report released Tuesday by the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform asserted that ex-IRS official Lois Lerner waived her Fifth Amendment rights. Lerner continues to stonewall California Rep. Darrell Issa’s committee, pleading the Fifth again in a divisive Oversight hearing last Wednesday convened to get to the bottom of the IRS’ improper targeting of conservative groups between 2010 and 2012. Oversight member Rep. Jim Jordan told The Daily Caller that the committee is “moving” toward holding Lerner in contempt of Congress to compel her to testify. “I think that’s where we’re moving,” Jordan said. “I think that’s where this is headed.”

"I just do want to say that right after I turned 17 and got my New Jersey driver´s license, one of the earliest places I drove was a trip — the only trip I have ever taken was to Hawaii," he said on the floor at about 3:00 a.m. "You didn´t drive to Hawaii," Sen.

Republican David Jolly won the special election to fill the House seat left vacant by the death of his former boss, Rep. C.W. Bill Young (R-Fla.). With nearly all of the votes counted Tuesday night, Jolly had 48.5 percent of the vote to Alex Sink’s 46.7 percent. Libertarian Lucas Overby had 4.8 percent. Sink lost the 2010 governor’s race to Rick Scott.

Police say the suspects were aware it was not the intended home, but they proceeded to violently attack the two victims who had been sleeping.
