Too Few Oppressors,
Too Many Victims

PJ Media, by Victor Davis Hanson

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 11/20/2012 4:35:11 AM

Since the election, some fatalistic Washington conservative elites have accepted — and Obama operatives have rejoiced in — a supposedly new and non-white-male ethnic electorate: Americans will be categorized, and collectively so, on the basis of largely how they look and, to a lesser extent, how they sound. Republicans, then, better get with the new tribalism and remarket themselves to address the new minority monolith. Accordingly, the enlightened and redeemable liberal elements of the otherwise now played-out old white majority, when combined with the new ethnic minorities, will result in a permanent progressive majority — one that rejects the archaic,

The USA was once a melting pot. It is now a centrifuge.

This is an amazing piece. When VDH gets into this tribalism that Obie and the liberals are selling, he details it to the point that your head spins and then you see it in all its absurdity.

What a treasure he is. Do find the time to read this.

#1, one of the most destructive, egregious and anti-American acts of the Klanton administration-almost un-noticed by the public and press- was the re-casting of that statement/ideology from MP to the ´Salad Bowl´.
In a Salad Bowl, all the ingredients retain their original flavor........

The democrat party- from the very first day envisioned-is a pure product of the hatred for the freedoms America stands for.

Democrats delenda est.

I don´t see much future for white males in either party. White males are now to be voiceless, work, and turn their pay over to others.

The Smearing of Chris Stevens
Power Line, by Scott Johnson    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 1/26/2014 4:31:41 PM     Post Reply
Last week the Wall Street Journal published Gregory Hicks’s column “Benghazi and the smearing of Chris Stevens.” It would be easy to overlook Hicks’s column in the crush of last week’s news, but it is deserving of special attention. In the column Hicks offers his eyewitness testimony to the security issues that Stevens dealt with at our Libyan facilities before his death. The redacted report of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence Committee that was released on January 15 has left some to draw the conclusion that Stevens rejected additional security and to imply that he is responsible for the success

   

 

  


 
A Harder Outlook for Today’s Cowboy
New York Times, by Dan Frosch    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 1/26/2014 4:23:26 PM     Post Reply
DENVER — Just a few miles from the midday bustle of this city’s hip downtown, a pen of black-hided yearlings trotted into a dusty arena, as a crowd of burly men in cowboy hats looked on silently. “I’m in the market for some heifers,” whispered one cattle rancher, eyeing the animals up and down. “If the price is right, I’ll be buying.” For more than a century now, the National Western Stock Show has been a proud totem of the old frontier — a place where rodeos, ranching and cowboys still live and breathe, even as Denver’s cow town roots have long

Fort Worth hospital ends life

A Texas hospital said Sunday that it would remove life support from a pregnant, brain-dead woman following a judge´s order that it was misapplying state law to disregard her family´s wishes. J.R. Labbe, a spokeswoman for John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth, issued a statement Sunday that says the hospital "will follow the court order" issued Friday in the case of Marlise Muñoz. Life support was terminated at 11:29 a.m. Sunday, family members told News 8. Heather King and Jessica Janicek, attorneys for Marlise´s husband Erick Muñoz, issued a brief statement to confirm what happened: "The Muñoz and Machado families will now proceed

Richard Ben Cramer died one year ago this week and he is still sorely missed.

Snowden´s Red Dawn

Give the hard-liners credit: After one stunning revelation after another about the National Security Agency’s Orwellian spying operations, they finally managed to land a punch this week on Edward Snowden, the über-leaking fugitive. Not that shrill words haven’t been flung at the former NSA contractor from the get-go, starting with traitor. And Representative Mike Rogers, R-Mich., chairman of the House intelligence committee, and Michael Hayden, who has headed both the NSA and CIA, joshed openly in an open forum about putting Snowden on a kill list. None of those smears seemed to stick, though, as Americans and the rest of the world

Obama´s NSA blind spot
Los Angeles Times, by Bruce Ackerman    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 1/26/2014 5:53:21 AM     Post Reply
President Obama´s recent speech on government surveillance is dominating the conversation, but he won´t be making the key decisions on the future of the National Security Agency´s collection of domestic phone data. The statutory provision authorizing these massive sweeps expires June 1, 2015. If Congress simply does nothing, the NSA´s domestic spying program will soon come to a screeching halt. The question is whether Americans will seize this opportunity to gain critical perspective on the crisis responses of the George W. Bush years. Voters elected and reelected Obama precisely because he promised to engage in this decisive reappraisal. But his speech

Wendy Davis on defense
Politico, by Katie Glueck    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 1/26/2014 5:34:34 AM     Post Reply
The honeymoon is over for Wendy Davis. The Texas Democratic gubernatorial candidate this week sustained the most negative coverage she’s faced since shooting to political stardom last summer. And her campaign, still smarting from the scrutiny, is determined to change the subject by turning up the heat on her opponent, GOP Attorney General Greg Abbott, over education. In the high-profile, astronomically expensive Texas gubernatorial race, Davis was riding high just over a week ago. While she has always faced an uphill battle, she had just raked in stellar fundraising numbers and scored yet another national television interview that showcased her compelling journey

Marijuana makes you stupid. Nobody wants to acknowledge the obvious fact, but that’s what this whole legalization debate is all about. That’s why most of the candidates for governor, of both parties, have come out against legalization, even if they have to obfuscate why they’re opposed to the Colorado-ization of Massachusetts. After all, the pols can’t offend that pivotal ganja-American voting bloc, assuming they can remember to vote in November. It’s left to comedians like Jay Leno Thursday night to poke around the truth: “Doctors warn that pot smoking impairs young people’s thinking, which of course makes them much more likely to sign up

Media let Hillary off the Benghazi hook
New York Post, by L. Brent Bozell, III    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 1/26/2014 5:18:45 AM     Post Reply
CNN anchor Jake Tapper blandly admitted the obvious in a radio interview with conservative host Hugh Hewitt. The same reporters that insist their former GOP favorite Chris Christie is ruined for 2016 by traffic jams on a bridge are letting Hillary Clinton skate for embassy-security neglect that led to four dead government employees at Benghazi. Why would so-called watchdogs of government suggest Clinton is a shoo-in in 2016 as if Benghazi never happened? Tapper strangely suggested that Benghazi always seemed like more of a White House scandal than a State Department scandal, and I don’t blame him, because Clinton didn’t grant

Certain elements of the pro-Israel community are willing to give DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz a pass on being tough on Iran. After all, she´s in difficult position, they say, trying to be pro-Israel and the head of the Democratic party. "The [Iran sanctions] bill is only a litmus test for the unsophisticated in the pro-Israel community," AIPAC member Michael Adler tells Foreign Policy. "People can disagree on tactics, but Debbie is in a unique position as DNC chair and has the pro-Israel agenda deeply-rooted in her." Another AIPAC member, Bruce Levy, says folks should cut the DNC chair some slack --

T HERE ARE LOTS of diversions in the Big White Ghetto, the vast moribund matrix of Wonder Bread–hued Appalachian towns and villages stretching from northern Mississippi to southern New York, a slowly dissipating nebula of poverty and misery with its heart in eastern Kentucky, the last redoubt of the Scots-Irish working class that picked up where African slave labor left off, mining and cropping and sawing the raw materials for a modern American economy that would soon run out of profitable uses for the class of people who 500 years ago would have been known, without any derogation, as peasants.

Newspaper boss says gun permit
database idea was misfire

A national newspaper chain never intended to create a multi-state database of gun owners with permits allowing them to carry concealed weapons according to its top executive, who told FoxNews.com a "poorly crafted" internal memo erroneously indicated such an idea was being planned. The memo -- sent by a top content editor to various editors at Civitas Media, which owns about 100 newspapers in 11 states, with 1.6 million in total circulation -- laid out a plan for an enterprise project that would use public information requests to establish the database. But Civitas President and CEO Michael Bush, in an email

America is set for the coldest month of the century as weather forecasters predict yet another freezing blast of Arctic air - putting Super Bowl Sunday in jeopardy. Teams have been warned to stay on high alert for changes to the scheduling of the first Super Bowl to be played in an open-air stadium. Temperatures have already hit record lows, at times making parts of the U.S. colder than the North Pole, and are expected to plunge in the coming days. The timing could not be worse for one of the biggest global sporting events, which will be exposed to

The Republican Party has a great opportunity to re-gain control of the country, but it must seize the day, U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina said Saturday night. The GOP is poised to win back a majority in the Senate and keep its advantage in the House in Congressional elections this fall, Graham said. [Snip] Graham, who is up for re-election, is facing GOP primary challengers state Sen. Lee Bright of Spartanburg, Orangeburg attorney Bill Connor, Upstate businessman Richard Cash and Citadel graduate and Lowcountry public relations businesswoman Nancy Mace. They accuse Graham of not being a true conservative.

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.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio weighed in on the hydraulic fracturing debate in his state during a press conference Thursday in Washington, D.C. “The one thing I’m firm about is I don’t see any place for fracking,” de Blasio told reporters at the U.S. Conference of Mayors when CNSNews.com asked what his policy would be “as far as developing oil, natural gas and other traditional energy sources in the state.” “The science simply isn’t reliable enough; the technology isn’t reliable enough, and there’s too much danger to our water supply, to our environment in general,” de Blasio said. “So, my view

Stephen Hawking has produced a "mind-bending" new theory that argues black holes do not actually exist - at least not in the way we currently perceive them. Instead, in his paper, Information Preservation and Weather Forecasting for Black Holes, Hawking proposes that black holes can exist without 'event horizons', the invisible cover believed to surround every black hole.During a previous lecture, 'Into the Black Hole', Hawkins described an event horizon as the boundary of a black hole, "where gravity is just strong enough to drag light back, and prevent it escaping".
“Falling through the event horizon, is a bit like going over Niagara Falls in a canoe", he said. "If you are above the falls, you can get away if you paddle fast enough, but once you are over the edge, you are lost. There's no way back.

Amazon Prime is like crack, people warn me in hushed, cautionary tones. Once you try it, you’re hooked. I personally have not signed up for Amazon’s premiere, super-duper, fancy-dancy, wave-o’-the-future membership program, even though I’m a frequent customer. But I’m fascinated by the transformation people talk about once they do. “Oh, you’ll see,” they tell me, “you’ll see.” On its face, Prime offers two simple things: Free two-day shipping on most purchases, and access to streaming movies and TV shows. All for $80 a year. Whether or not people need two-day shipping, a few things seem to happen once they

Attempting to reverse sagging approval ratings, President Obama plans to continue his pointed pitch to members of Congress in his annual State of the Union speech Tuesday night -- that he will use his executive power to take action on his own to help reduce income inequality in the country. White House communications aides have spent the past week saying Obama plans to hit this theme in the speech, and on Saturday they offered a bit more information. Dan Pfeiffer, White House communications director, sent out an email Saturday to supporters saying Obama´s message Tuesday night can be summed up

The number of people enrolled in private health insurance under Obamacare has soared by more than one-third in recent weeks to around 3 million, according to government data released on Friday. Marilyn Tavenner, administrator of the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), announced the preliminary tally in a blog posting. She forecast that enrollment through new federal and state health insurance marketplaces would continue to grow in coming weeks as a public outreach campaign accelerates. The new data adds to evidence that President Barack Obama´s administration has turned the corner on enrollment after a botched October 1 launch.

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.
