John Kerry to Be Nominated to
Be Secretary of State, Sources Say

ABC News, by Jake Tapper

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 12/15/2012 10:16:45 PM

Sources tell ABC News that President Obama has decided that he will nominate Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., to be secretary of state. For a variety of reasons including the finalization of the process, other pending Cabinet decisions, and — more immediately — the national reaction to the tragic shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, the news will not be announced in the next few days. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who is recovering from an illness and a concussion she suffered upon fainting because of that illness, is set to retire in the next few weeks.

Comments:
Here we go, again. The man who spits on our Military to be nominated to be Secretary of State. Who will be protecting him overseas, should he not get "Swift-boated" and McCain gives him his approval?

Another sad chapter in the Barack Obama story! Picking one of the most despicable figures in recent congressional history to represent the United States disgusts me and a whole lot of Vietnam vets. John Kerry has been a coward in uniform and out of it and a traitor to the country he has repeatedly sworn to support.

Miss Hillary probably longs to be home more with her loving husband. But her achievements have been vast and mighty, a literal Miracle Worker on the world stage. What a shame The Smartest Woman In The World never became commander in chief - imagine the glorious war she could have waged against The Vast Right Wing Conspiracy. Oh well, maybe she´ll spend a happy winter solstice modeling lingerie for Bill.

Meanwhile, does Theresa pay her fair share?

#24, I don´t think they have to worry about the ´racially driven´ charge so much, given the glaring Benghazi faux pas so recently committed by the previous nominee. He shouldn´t come away from the proceedings unscathed though and I hope the Swift-Boaters do their thing - but he´s an improvement over Ricey.

If someone as dense and kinky as the drunken Hildebeast has held the position, it really doesn´t matter. This blow-dried blowhard will be confirmed by 90+ votes in the Senate.

Sarah Palin: Paul Ryan’s budget

Washington Times, by Jessica Chasmar    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 4/2/2014 9:17:55 PM     Post Reply
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin blasted Republican Rep. Paul Ryan in a Facebook post Tuesday, calling his budget proposal “the definition of insanity.” “Holy Moly! Are you kidding?” Mrs. Palin wrote. “The latest Ryan (R, Wisconsin) Budget is not an April Fool’s joke. But it really IS a joke because it is STILL not seeing the problem; it Still is not proposing reining in wasteful government overspending.” The former vice presidential candidate linked to an article by Breitbart News, which says Mr. Ryan’s budget would increase spending in 2015 and 2016 but would balance the budget within 10 years.

Houston - A federal appeals court on Wednesday threw out a ruling requiring the Texas prison system to disclose more information about where it gets lethal-injection drugs, reversing a judge who had halted an upcoming execution. Only hours before the appellate decision, a lower-court judge issued a temporary injunction halting the execution of Tommy Lynn Sells, a convicted serial killer who was set to die Thursday. The case originally included Ramiro Hernandez-Llanas, another inmate scheduled to be put to death next week. But the appellate ruling affected only Sells. The appeals court said it would take up Hernandez-Llanas´ case at

We have reports of an active shooter on Fort Hood. We have reports that there are several injuries from this shooting. There is at least one patient being transported to the hospital. We are also getting reports of victims in the Battle Simulation Center on 65th and Warehouse. The suspect is still at large. The shooter was said to be in building 33026 which is the Medical Brigade Building. Reports have said that he was driving a gray Toyota, described as a white male in an Army Combat Uniform, and carrying a .45 handgun. Fort Hood has been put on lockdown. Central Texas College has been evacuated only as a precaution.

On Wednesday, the Supreme Court released another ruling on campaign donations. Naturally, those who fundraise off the idea that donating to campaigns equals more free speech for the wealthy were apoplectic. So, for those screaming about “bribery” and “money in politics,” here’s a simple breakdown of the decision: 1. You can now donate to as many candidates, committees and PACs as you want. 2. You can still only donate $2,600 to each candidate. The decision struck down the limits on total campaign donations - currently set at $74,600 for committees and PACs and a separate $48,600 cap on direct candidate

Some Republican fat cats are trying to coax former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush — brother and son to two former presidents — into making a bid for the White House. Democrats have been less subtle. They´ve created a "super PAC" called Ready for Hillary, which is only slightly less obvious a gesture than constructing a giant neon sign reading "Run, Hillary, Run."

But in America, where leaders have to run for office, a more useful way to think about dynasties might be to think of them as brand names. In chaotic and confusing marketplaces,

Jerusalem - The Middle East peace talks verged on a breakdown Tuesday night, after President Mahmoud Abbas of the Palestinian Authority defied the United States and Israel by taking concrete steps to join 15 international agencies — a move to gain the benefits of statehood outside the negotiations process. The move, which appeared to catch American and Israeli officials by surprise, prompted Secretary of State John Kerry to cancel a planned return to the region on Wednesday, in which he had expected to complete an agreement extending negotiations through 2015. In that emerging deal, the United States would release an American

The Obama administration has conducted warrantless searches of Americans´ communications as part of the National Security Agency´s surveillance operations that target foreigners located outside of the U.S., the administration´s top intelligence official confirmed in a letter to Congress disclosed Tuesday. These searches were authorized by a secret surveillance court in 2011, but it was unclear until Tuesday whether any such searches on Americans had been conducted. The recent acknowledgement of warrantless searches on Americans offers more insight into U.S. government surveillance operations put in place after the terror attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. The government has broadly interpreted these laws to allow for the

The High Court of Australia has given people who do not identify as male or female formal legal recognition. In a historic decision with far-reaching implications for institutions and individuals across the country, the court on Wednesday formally upheld the right of transgender person Norrie to be registered as neither a man nor a woman with the NSW registry of births, deaths and marriages. The decision is recognition by the highest court in the land that 'sex' is not binary - it is not only 'male' or 'female' - and that this should be recognised by the law and in basic legal documents.

Before getting to the speech itself, it’s worth noting a few things. When the Democrats passed and Barack Obama signed Obamacare, the majority opposed it. About 56%, in fact. A majority have consistently opposed that law ever since. The Obama administration touted 7 million sign-ups by March 31 as “success.” When that goal appeared to be unreachable, the administration suggested that maybe 5 or 6 million would be enough. Now, as if by magic, they have their number. Somehow. All along, the administration has touted false numbers of enrollees. All along, the administration has neglected to admit that Obamacare is

A few months back, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius stated for the record that 7 million Obamacare sign-ups by the end of March would constitute success. She was clear about it. But then February came, and February always stinks. It’s just a lousy month. You’re tired of winter, you’re still miles away from spring, and no one was signing up for Obamacare. That 7 million figure looked totally unreachable. So Sebelius does what every other member of the Obama administration does when confronted with inconvenient facts. She lied.

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better.´ But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged Rose Garden appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night. Others were already insured, including millions who lost coverage when their existing policies were suddenly

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – President Obama compared the Republican budget plan to a "stinkburger" or "meanwich" during a speech here Wednesday, using a series of zingers in an attempt to strike a contrast with the GOP on economic issues in an election year. In a speech to an enthusiastic crowd of 1,400 at the University of Michigan, Obama repeatedly mocked Republican ideas about how to improve the economy, as he touted his own proposal to raise the minimum wage. Obama, who visited the local Zingerman´s deli before the speech, said that Republican proposals to cut taxes for wealthier Americans and

With Chris Christie in deep trouble, Republican poobahs are reportedly looking to Jeb Bush to save their party in 2016. The former two-term governor of Florida speaks fluent Spanish, is a convert to Catholicism, and has high name recognition. Jeb could raise millions of dollars over night by just saying “yes” to running. Despite all this, there are strong reasons Republicans should say no to him. 1. His last name is poison. Let’s face it, if Jeb Bush had the last name of Something Else he would have already run for president in 2008 or 2012. According to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll registered voters were asked if they would definitely NOT vote for Jeb Bush and 50 percent said they would not.
