New Year´s Thoughts from
Our House to Yours

Investor´s Business Daily, by Andrew Malcolm

A lot of people are looking at 2013 and feeling pessimistic. That´s silly, of course. Sure, The Incompetents got reelected. The economy still sucks. It´s likely to get worse because Barack Hussein Obama doesn´t have a clue about capitalism, doesn´t want to and is focused on transforming the America he didn´t grow up in. He´ll be out campaigning and speechifying on something else divisive any day now.

Chicago Land is not good enough for the Messiah´s Library, it will be in Hawaii. Mooch is there right now arranging things on her desk for her new salaried job as the collector of big checks for her disliked hubby´s significant ediface.

The job will provide cover for her to live in Hawaii full time, and only travel to the hell of D.C. for parties or fun events with exclusive photo ops.

One minor disagreement with the inestimable Andrew Malcolm: The creeping Chicagoness isn’t coincidence. Chicago has given us the communist boil on Corpus America and now boil has spread its pus into DC and the White House. There is no coincidence or happenstance in that, just evil in the Democratic Party and naiveté in the voting populace.

Um, why is it "silly" to feel pessimistic?

Everything AM has written is enough to ensure a black mood for at least 4 years!

Obama vs Putin: How soft

Perhaps you´ve heard with echoes of Nazi Germany annexing its neighbors with no convincing Allied response, Russian troops have taken effective control of eastern Ukraine. Here´s how President Barack Obama responded: He telephoned Russian President Vladimir Putin. Obama expressed "deep concern" over Russia´s moves, suggested Putin´s troops leave and warned the occupation "would negatively impact Russia’s standing in the international community." [Snip] Here´s how Col. Putin responded to Obama´s words of warning: He sent more Russian troops into Crimea.

Hi, I’m Ann Wagner. It’s truly an honor to represent the heartland of our country in St. Louis, Missouri, as a member of the United States Congress. Growing up working in my parents’ carpet store, my daddy used to tell me that your word is your bond. That when your bond is broken; your trust is broken. (Scroll down for video of these full remarks.) Unfortunately, President Obama has broken that bond with the American people, and they no longer can trust his word. It seems like every week there is another broken promise from this administration about ObamaCare. As a candidate for president, then-Senator Barack Obama promised to sign

Hi everybody. In my State of the Union Address, I said that the best measure of opportunity is access to a good job. And after the worst recession of our lifetimes, our businesses have created eight and a half million new jobs in the last four years. But we need to do more to make America a magnet for good jobs for the future. And in this year of action, where Congress won’t do that, I will do whatever I can to expand opportunity for more Americans. This week, I took two actions to attract new jobs to America — jobs in American manufacturing, and jobs rebuilding America’s infrastructure.

Contrary to popular conception about porky Americans, there is some good news today for the country´s toddlers (and their parents) as they begin the journey as the next generation of teens, then adults: A new federal study finds a significant drop in obesity in children between the ages of two and five. A 43% decrease, to be exact. [Snip] The obesity decline among U.S. pre-schoolers is the first optimistic sign in such a major nationwide study. And Obama’s White House was quick to hail Mrs. Obama.

Conan: President Obama has asked HBO for free copies of the upcoming season of ‘Game of Thrones.’ You know how bad things are in this country when even the White House can´t afford HBO. Fallon: Sports shocker last week. Host Russia’s hockey team was eliminated from the Olympics. On the bright side, it looks like Siberia's about to get some really good players. Conan: Russia's favored Olympic men's hockey team was eliminated by Finland. Then an hour later, Russia's men's hockey team was eliminated by Putin.



Afghan combat puzzle: Why have

You may have seen news reports about Americans tiring of the war in Afghanistan, now our nation´s longest ever. Not surprising. What is surprising -- and hasn´t been widely noted -- is that it´s taken so long for a U.S. population famously addicted to instant gratification to tire of a deadly war that has so far claimed the lives of 2,313 countrymen and women. In previous wars since 1950 it´s been a mere matter of months before Americans were doubting the reasons for combat.

Hi, I’m Tom Cotton. I’m proud to represent the people of Arkansas in Congress. [Snip] Arkansans, like most Americans, have had their grit tested over the last several years through a financial collapse, recession, and a stagnant, jobless recovery. Barack Obama’s policies aren’t solving these problems — they’re causing the problem. President Obama’s policies spend too much money — they’ve irresponsibly added trillions of dollars to our national debt. The debt slows economic growth today and it places an immoral burden on our kids and grandkids.

Hi, everybody. Restoring the idea of opportunity for all requires a year of action from all of us. Wherever I can act on my own, I will — and whenever I can ask more Americans to help, I’ll do that too. In my State of the Union Address I asked more business leaders to take action to raise their employees’ wages. Because even though our economy is growing, and our businesses have created about eight and a half million new jobs over the past four years, average wages have barely budged.

Oh, geez. Here we go again. President Obama Wednesday stepped into the explosive political eruptions in Ukraine to gratuitously warn the embattled repressive government "there will be consequences if someone steps over the line." Seriously? After 1,856 days in office, this naive yokel, who promised he´d charm the world into loving America again, still cannot resist the temptation to utter empty threats to foreign leaders, threats that they know very well he has absolutely no intention of fulfilling, threats that diminish any surviving U.S. clout abroad.

Conan: Rumors abound that Russia put cameras in Sochi hotel bathrooms. When asked, Russia said, “Don’t worry, our cameras don’t work either." Conan: A photo from the Olympics in Sochi shows an elevator with nothing but “up” buttons. However, that is perfectly normal, says Sochi Olympics organizer Willie Wonka.

Some people think Monday´s national holiday had something to do with commemorating the birthdays of two of the country´s greatest presidents, George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. Silly people. Monday was actually the fifth birthday of the stimulus spending bill signed by one of the country´s least great presidents, Barack Hussein Obama. That was back in 2009 when a billion dollars seemed like a lot of money. [Snip] The spending measure, Obama promised, was destined to create millions of new jobs and end one of the most frightening economic recessions in modern history.

GOP: Obama´s Medicare cuts
´a breach of faith with seniors´

Good morning. Few promises are more sacred than the ones we make to older Americans. Protecting the dignity and the security our seniors have earned is a commitment that spans generations and party lines. For example, during President Obama´s health care speech to Congress in the fall of 2009, he spoke directly to older Americans. “These steps,” he said, “will ensure that you — America’s seniors — get the benefits you´ve been promised.” Then, during a telephone town hall with seniors from around the country, he said he wanted to respond to what he called “hysterical claims” about his plan. “Here’s the truth..." he said,

Saturday, the Republican National Committee (RNC) released a statement in honor of Women’s History Month in which they highlighted women trailblazers, mentioning some prominent women in the Republican Party. Conspicuously absent, however, was former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.Republicans “played a leading role in securing women’s right to vote,” Chairman Reince Priebus and Co-Chairman Sharon Day wrote, adding that Susan B. Anthony joined with other suffragists to pass the 19th Amendment, which was finally accomplished in 1919. Boasting a unique role Republican women have played, they stated: Republican women have a history of being trailblazers, breaking ground and glass ceilings--from Margaret Chase Smith,

"Because he was smarter than the rest of us." Here´s McCain´s full quote, from Time: "I thought when he had a couple of dinners with Republican senators, we really had a good environment there.

He leads a company that some would consider the epitome of ruthless global capitalism. But Apple chief executive Tim Cook has shocked some in the US with an impassioned attack on the single-minded pursuit of profit – and a direct appeal to climate-change deniers not to buy shares in his firm. Eyewitnesses said Cook, who succeeded Steve Jobs as boss of the technology giant in 2011, was visibly angry as he took on a group of right-wing investors during a question-and-answer session at a shareholders’ meeting.

The crisis in Ukraine has brought out a fresh round of critics of President Obama´s foreign policy who see a pattern emerging: the president tries to assert his authority and direct events on the world stage with empty threats, which inevitably have no follow through. With each instance, U.S. power grows weaker as foreign powers view Mr. Obama as the president who cried wolf. The latest case: Mr. Obama´s public warning to Russia to stay out of Ukraine was followed by an invasion just days later. It´s just the latest failure, say critics who point to Syria as an example.

MSNBC host Rachel Maddow asserted Monday that George W. Bush, who exited office in 2009, is ultimately at fault for the current Ukrainian crisis. Ms. Maddow told colleague Andrea Mitchell that Mr. Bush’s entire Middle East policy has led to several overseas conflicts, from the Iraq War to the ongoing Russia-Ukraine dispute. “The decisions of our generation on national security are determined more than anything by what the George W. Bush administration did with that nine-year war in Iraq and, alongside it, a 13-year war in Afghanistan that’s still going on,” Ms. Maddow said during a discussion about her new

The federal government has already decided to close offices Monday in Washington, which expects rain, ice and 8-12 inches of snow. Congress postponed Monday business until Tuesday. Public school systems from Dallas to Philadelphia canceled Monday classes. Washington city offices and Delaware state government offices will be closed Monday.

Bad Business: Apple CEO Tim Cook has told global warming skeptics to "get out of this stock." But in essence, he did more than that. He told every Apple shareholder to take a hike and waved potential investors away. When Cook met with shareholders Friday, he lost his usual business cool when a group proposed that the company be more open about its environmental activism as well as transparent about costs it incurs as it increases its dependence on renewable energy.

WASHINGTON—Police arrested hundreds of people who strapped themselves to the White House fence on Sunday to protest the proposed Keystone XL oil pipeline. The protesters were mostly college students who participated in a peaceful march that began at Georgetown University and ended outside the White House. They chanted "climate justice now" and carried signs with slogans such as "don´t tarnish the earth" in an effort to persuade President Barack Obama to reject the pipeline. They say it will worsen global warming. Protesters were passionate but quite orderly. Police were waiting for them with buses and vans to speed the process.

The survey released Tuesday was done jointly by Roanoke College in Virginia, Rutgers-Eagleton in New Jersey and Siena College in New York. It shows that 68 percent of New York voters and a whopping 74 percent of New Jersey voters are in favor of establishing a national gun registry. Even in the southern state of Virginia — which has gone blue in recent years — 63 percent want the federal government to track all guns. NRA Spokesman Andrew
