Mr. Hagel and the Jews
Weekly Standard, by ELLIOTT ABRAMS

Original Article

Posted By:FlyRight, 1/7/2013 7:59:06 AM

During the hearings on Chuck Hagel’s nomination to be secretary of defense, it’s clear that the views of gay rights organizations will be heard. There the issue seems to be whether Hagel’s apology for previous remarks and beliefs was sincere, or motivated solely by self-interest. He had years to apologize publicly, but did so only when opposition from gay rights groups threatened his nomination.

It would be fairly easy for republicans to derail hagel, One of the old-timers should come out and say that he was actually glad to see the appointment of someone who has taken a strong stand on gays and Jews.

After hagel has declined for "family reasons", the elder statesman could parse his statement for the media and note that he was glad because it should disqualify hagel from consideration.

Where´s the blowback against Obama for nominating the guy? Where?
This is a cynical nomination from the guy that got overwhelming Jewish support. He wants Republicans to eat one of their own.

Weiner Aide Lashes
Out at Former Intern
New York Times, by DAVID W. CHEN    Original Article
Posted By: FlyRight- 7/31/2013 7:30:47 AM     Post Reply
Unleashing a barrage of expletives that would be unusual even in an off-the-record conversation, the chief spokeswoman for Anthony D. Weiner’s embattled campaign for mayor attacked a former campaign intern in an interview published on Tuesday night. Barbara Morgan, in an interview with Talking Points Memo, a political news site, was responding to a first-person account by Olivia Nuzzi, the former intern, who wrote harshly in The Daily News about her experiences with the campaign. Ms. Nuzzi claimed that Mr. Weiner repeatedly called interns by the wrong name, underpaid a staff

Weiner´s Women

Posted By: FlyRight- 7/31/2013 6:43:41 AM     Post Reply
THERE is something missing from the endless moralizing and sophomoric jokes aimed at Anthony D. Weiner. That something is the role of women in a coarse and creepy Internet culture dedicated to the fulfillment of both male and female desires for virtual carnal knowledge. People ask how Mr. Weiner’s wife, the soulfully beautiful and professionally accomplished Huma Abedin, can stay with him. My question is why hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of women apparently derive gratification from exchanging sexual talk and pictures with strangers.

The Bradley Manning verdict is
still bad news for the press
Guardian (UK), by Dan Gillmore    Original Article
Posted By: FlyRight- 7/30/2013 5:38:47 PM     Post Reply
The American journalism trade is breathing a collective – but premature and, in many cases, grossly hypocritical – sigh of relief today. A military judge has found Bradley Manning guilty of many crimes, but "aiding the enemy" isn´t one of them. Had the judge found Manning guilty of aiding the enemy, she would have set a terrible precedent. For the first time, an American court – albeit a military court – would have said it was a potentially capital crime simply to give information to a news organization, because in the internet era

Green paint found on Smithsonian

Green paint was found Monday defacing a statue outside the Smithsonian Castle on the National Mall and poured atop an organ in a chapel at the Washington National Cathedral, just three days after the Lincoln Memorial was vandalized in a similar manner. D.C. police have now joined the U.S. Park Police in the investigation, but authorities said they do not know if any of the incidents are related.

"I think every president in the intense media environment we have now, certainly every two-term president, gets to a point where the American people stop listening, stop leaning forward hungrily for information. I think this president got there earlier than most presidents. And I think he´s in that time now."So said the Wall Street Journal´s Peggy Noonan on ABC´s This Week Sunday.

David Axelrod, a former senior adviser to President Obama, said Sunday that Former Rep. Anthony Weiner was “delusional” and should drop out of the race for New York City mayor."I think it´s time for him to go away and let New York have its mayor’s race," Axelrod said on NBC´s "Meet thePress." Axelrod said he had not commented on Weiner because he is personal friends with Weiner´s wife,

The End of Shame
Canadian Free Press, by Daniel Greenfield    Original Article
Posted By: FlyRight- 7/28/2013 8:37:43 AM     Post Reply
Weiner’s political career will never end, if only because of how much value he has to offer to the media, standup comedians and bored browsers looking for some news item to wake them up long enough to finish another hour of data entry at their job. Shame has become a mostly discredited concept. The return of Weiner and Spitzer to public life proves as much. But the Era of Shame ended conclusively with Clinton’s impeachment proceedings. The only outcome of those proceedings was to degrade the country while leaving the man at the center of the mess intact.

A Blow for the Press,

Sometimes James Risen feels like Jean Valjean, the beleaguered protagonist of “Les Miserables,” hounded for years by the authorities. “They just keep coming at me,” Mr. Risen, a Times reporter in Washington, told me by phone last week. It has been 10 years since he learned of a secret C.I.A. program to interfere with Iran’s quest for nuclear weapons, and six since he got an ominous FedEx package containing a government subpoena. Since then, it has been one legal hurdle after another, trying to stay out of court. Just over a week ago, another blow came: A federal appeals court panel ruled,

Weiner’s Campaign Manager
Quits After Latest Revelations

In a new sign of tumult within Anthony D. Weiner’s embattled political operation, his campaign manager has quit, leaving his already skeletal team without a day-to-day leader. According to two people told of the decision, the campaign manager, Danny Kedem, no longer wished to oversee Mr. Weiner’s bid for New York mayor after a week of bruising revelations about the candidate’s latest online conduct. The two people, who have close ties to the campaign, did not want to be identified because they were disclosing confidential conversations.

Rebirth of Book

New York Times, by Julie Bosman    Original Article
Posted By: FlyRight- 7/27/2013 8:24:58 AM     Post Reply
Hamilton Jordan, Jimmy Carter’s young, brash chief of staff, was famous during the administration for negotiating tough deals, carousing at night and shunning the stuffy customs of official Washington. He spent the final years of his life on a quieter pursuit: writing a memoir of nearly 300 pages that was not quite finished at the time of his death in 2008. Now his daughter, Kathleen, a 24-year-old television producer, is rushing to polish the manuscript in the hope of getting it published

Obama Misrepresents ´Stand Your Ground´
American Thinker, by William A. Levinson    Original Article
Posted By: FlyRight- 7/27/2013 8:12:57 AM     Post Reply
President Obama suggested that states reconsider "stand your ground" laws, and contended that they invite people to use deadly force when it is not justified. The following statement proves Mr. Obama´s well-known dishonesty, as demonstrated below. I refer specifically to his implication that "stand your ground" means you can shoot somebody who makes you "feel threatened." And for those who resist that idea that we should think about something like these "stand your ground" laws, I just ask people to consider if Trayvon Martin was of age and armed,

Alternatives for Back Pain Relief
New York Times, by Gretchen Reynolds    Original Article
Posted By: FlyRight- 7/22/2013 6:22:46 AM     Post Reply
If you have never suffered from lingering low back pain, you’re lucky or, more likely, young. Up to 80 percent of us will experience low back pain at some point. And for most, there won’t be an identifiable cause. In the past 10 years, the most popular nonsurgical medical treatment for “chronic, nonspecific” low back pain has been injection therapy, or shots into the lower back of various substances — usually cortisone but also liquid ibuprofen, morphine and vitamin B12.

Mark Levin, who hosts one of America´s top radio talk shows and is considered by supporters to be the people´s pundit on the Constitution, is rallying his 8.5 million-strong audience to demand an historic convention of state governments to halt the "oppressive power" of the federal government. The author of two New York Times bestsellers on the threats to the Constitution, Levin hopes his latest, "The Liberty Amendments," out mid-August, will spark the state lawmakers to tap a rarely used Constitutional provision to institute measures that would brake President Obama´s use of executive orders, bar thousand-page laws and

Colin Powell has admitted to exchanging ´very personal´ emails with a Romanian diplomat but denies having an affair with the much younger woman after a hacker threatened to release their intimate messages. The 76-year-old retired general told the Smoking Gun that he met Corina Cretu, 45, roughly 10 years ago when she was working as an assistant to the president of Romania. She is now a member of the European Parliament. ´After I left the Department of State in January 2005 we stayed in touch via email,´ he told TSG.

The former commander of special operations in Northern Africa told a closed-door briefing today that he was largely detached from events the night of the Benghazi attack as he was traveling at the time.

Originally, lawmakers had been told by the Defense Department that he had retired — the actual date is Aug. 1, an “administrative error” according to the Pentagon — and that they didn’t have

Arizona Sen. John McCain was the Republican Party´s 2008 presidential nominee and he still wants the keys to the Oval Office. But he is beginning to sound more like a fan of likely 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. "She´s a rock star," he said in a newly released interview. "She has, maybe not glamour, but certainly the aura of someone widely regarded throughout the world," he added in a reference to her work as secretary of State. McCain, reportedly trying to win back his reputation as a GOP maverick, was asked by the New Republic

Serial sexter Anthony Weiner’s wife partly blamed herself last year when her horndog husband confessed to her that he was at it again. Friends and family told People magazine that Huma Abedin was kicking herself at the time for bailing out of couples counseling and focusing more on their newborn baby boy. But, thanks to a new round of joint therapy that continues even now, the couple was able to put the relapse behind them. “They really became a unit, and she feels much closer to Anthony now,” a relative told the magazine. That’s a long way from how Abedin

Gotta figure her lead would be even bigger without Joe Miller in the field here. Her nomination for the taking? Alaska should be a top tier pick up opportunity for Senate Republicans next year…but their top choice of a candidate is Sarah Palin. 36% of GOP primary voters in the state say they’d like Palin to be their standard bearer against Mark Begich to 26% for Mead Treadwell, 15% for Dan Sullivan, and 12% for Joe Miller.

Sen. John McCain — a Democrat? There was confusion Wednesday after the Arizona Republican mistakenly strolled into President Obama’s meeting with Senate Democrats at the Capitol. The room full of Democrats — who happened to be meeting in the same room where the Senate GOP usually holds their weekly policy luncheons — erupted in applause and laughter as the former Republican presidential candidate made his entrance. As McCain, 76, walked out of the Dem-filled space, reporters pressed him as to why he stepped foot in the room.

In preparation for the release of Oscar-bait film The Butler, Forest Whitaker, Oprah Winfrey, and director Lee Daniels (Precious) sat down with Parade magazine. The film chronicles a butler (Whitaker) who works in the White House through seven administrations. Winfrey plays the butler’s wife. In the interview, Winfrey explained her sadness that so few Americans know about the history of the civil rights movement: “They don’t know diddly-squat.

If we learned anything about Barack Obama in his first term it is that when he starts repeating the same idea over and over, what´s on his mind is something else. The first term´s over-and-over subject was "the wealthiest 1%." Past some point, people wondered why he kept beating these half-dead horses. After the election, we knew. It was to propagandize the targeted voting base that would provide his 4% popular-vote margin of victory—very young voters and minorities. They believed. He won. The second-term over-and-over, elevated in his summer speech tour, is the shafting of the middle class. But

CNN has uncovered exclusive new information about what is allegedly happening at the CIA, in the wake of the deadly Benghazi terror attack. Four Americans, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens, were killed in the assault by armed militants last September 11 in eastern Libya. Sources now tell CNN dozens of people working for the CIA were on the ground that night, and that the agency is going to great lengths to make sure whatever it was doing, remains a secret.

In her first speech since taking over the Environmental Protection Agency, Gina McCarthy came out swinging Tuesday and promised to ramp up the aggressive climate change agenda laid out by President Obama.(snip)“Can we stop talking about environmental regulations killing jobs? Please, at least for today,” she said during remarks at Harvard Law School. “We need to cut carbon pollution to grow jobs. We need to cut carbon pollution to strengthen the economy. Let’s talk about it positively. Let’s approach this as an opportunity of a lifetime. There are too many lifetimes at stake.”
