Hagel the Kyoto-Slayer
Power Line, by Steven Hayward

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 1/8/2013 5:18:58 AM

So far most of the critical discussion about Chuck Hagel for SecDef is that he said mean things about homosexuals, or is hostile to Israel, if not in fact anti-Semitic. So far I’m curious that people on the Left in particular are forgetting Hagel’s key role in derailing the egregious Kyoto Protocol in its infancy. He was the key person behind the “Byrd-Hagel” resolution in the Senate in 1997 denouncing the Kyoto treaty in the draft form that existed at the time. The Byrd-Hagel resolution was essentially a missile aimed at the Clinton administration

Peace is more than a piece of paper
Jerusalem Post [Israel], by Emily Schrader    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 8/11/2013 6:11:38 AM     Post Reply
US Secretary of State John Kerry, obviously wiser than all the leaders of Israel as well as every secretary of state who preceded him, is now overseeing the resolution of the longest-running conflict on earth – the conflict between Arabs and Jews. And he and the Obama administration appear quite certain that peace is just around the corner. This unparalleled arrogance is nothing new. The Obama administration has repeatedly strong-armed Israel from the start, perpetuating the myth, believed by many European countries, that Israel takes unnecessary actions that harm the prospects of peace with the “oppressed” Palestinians.

The new face of SNAP?
Food stamps buy lobster

Daily Caller, by Caroline May    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 8/11/2013 5:58:25 AM     Post Reply
During an hour-long deep dive into the growing use of food stamps in America, Fox News highlighted “the new face of food stamps.” That new face is a pina colada-sipping, lobster-loving lothario named Jason Greenslate. Greenslate, a 29-year-old La Jolla California surfer and musician who sings that he does not want a “motherfucking job” and has “fuck no” guilt about living on $200 of what he calls “free money ” — or what the government called Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Benefits — while he avoids a job to hang out on the beach, sing and chase women.

Cheers, sighs over Obamas’ visit
Boston Herald, by Gary J. Remal    Original Article

The first family’s return to Martha’s Vineyard yesterday brought with it the thrills and excitement of welcoming the commander in chief — as well as the eye rolling and forehead slapping that comes with welcoming him, too. “They closed South Road, one of three roads to this part of the island,” said John Molinari, who with his wife owns two apparel shops called Beetlebung, including one in exclusive Chilmark, where the Obamas stay. “It’s been inconvenient to some people, and this is a very affluent community, so you’re talking about millionaires and billionaires.” The Obamas — who skipped their annual tradition

The Watergate Cover-Up
Trial: Justice Denied?

Foul deeds will rise, though all the earth o´erwhelm them, to men´s eyes. -- William Shakespeare, Hamlet Watergate remains the greatest political scandal in modern American history. It culminated not only in President Nixon’s announcement of his resignation, 39 years ago Thursday, but in the conviction and imprisonment of his three most senior aides. (Snip)It turns out that the notion that “no man is above the law” somehow didn’t apply to judges or prosecutors involved in the cover-up trial. Documents I have uncovered indicate that the efforts to punish the wrongdoings of Watergate led to further wrongdoing

Prepping for 2016: Rick Perry

As we wind down our series on presidential contenders, we look at Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s to-do list if he wants to be a serious contender in 2016. Remember, Right Turn will be back on August 12. What does Perry need to do? 1. It’s fine to mock his “oops” moment at the debate in 2012, but his main goal should be in projecting a serious national image. 2. Remarkably, few Republicans are talking about energy; he’d do well to set out a specific energy policy and travel around the country promoting it. 3. Perry has time to prepare

Misjudging al Qaeda

Anyone following the news even casually last week surely noticed the long parade of Obama administration officials trotted out before the cameras to insist their boss, the president, has always understood the serious and ongoing threat presented by al Qaeda and its affiliates—emphasis on affiliates. The assurances came after intelligence about imminent and possibly large-scale attacks on U.S. and Western interests led the administration to shutter nearly two dozen U.S. embassies in the Middle East and South Asia for several days. These assurances were necessary because the president and those who speak for him have spent the better part

   

 

  


 
Ronald McDonald, Slave Driver

Fast-food workers across America — or at least across the island of Manhattan that media outlets often confuse for America — have been partaking in lunchtime strikes. My lunchtime strike against fast food started long before the workers’ industrial action did. When I want a hangover, I prefer Budweiser to Burger King. Like fast women or fast money, fast food leaves one with an empty feeling. The appetite craves most what satiates it least. A commenter on the Freakonomics website recently claimed that the McDonald’s Double Cheeseburger is “the cheapest, most nutritious, and bountiful food

Charlie’s crackers

Memo to Charlie Rangel: You’re in some pretty uncharted waters if former Gov. David Paterson — son of one of your closest friends and allies — is publicly taking you to task for your racially charged remarks. The hoopla began with a Rangel slam against the Tea Party: “It is the same group we faced in the South with those white crackers and the dogs and the police,” the Harlem congressman told Politico. “They didn’t care about how they looked.” In other words, the Tea Partiers are the heirs of Bull Connor and the segregationists. A few days later, as a guest

Political Correctness Run Amok
PJ Media, by Ron Radosh    Original Article

We all know about the hazards and follies of political correctness. But this time, the powers that be in Seattle, and it seems New York City as well, have gone way too far. The Office for Civil Rights in Seattle, a Fox News report informed us last week, instructed city workers about no longer using terms that some people in Seattle might deem offensive. I wondered when first reading this if they were talking about scores of white employees using the N word. No, that’s not it. The words they are complaining about include the following: “citizens” and “brown-bag lunch.”

Biden, Napolitano involved in
McAuliffe arm-twisting at DHS?
Hot Air, by Ed Morrissey    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 8/11/2013 4:49:51 AM     Post Reply
The New York Times provides a little more background on the efforts by former Democratic Party chair Terry McAuliffe to secure EB-5 visas — and a little more of the scope, too. When McAuliffe and other GreenTech officials met with US Customs and Immigrations Services chief Alejandro Mayorkas, they didn’t land the meeting from their own personal charm alone. According to whistleblowers sending information to Senator Charles Grassley, McAuliffe got some help from Vice President Joe Biden’s office, and a boost from Mayorkas’ boss, outgoing DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano: He and his lawyers sent a stream of e-mails

IHS: Rejecting Keystone Will
Have Little to No Impact on
Greenhouse Gas Emissions
Fox News, by Elizabeth MacDonald    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 8/11/2013 4:43:06 AM     Post Reply
A new study from IHS, a prominent, independent energy research firm, says that a thumbs down from President Barack Obama on the Keystone Pipeline would have minimal to no impact on U.S. greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. It found that “Venezuelan heavy oil—and Venezuela—would be the number one beneficiary of a negative decision on Keystone.” The new findings may figure prominently in the fight over the pipeline, which the administration is expected to render a decision on in September. The emissions would still be the same without the pipeline due to the fact that TransCanada would still deliver the oil

Obama to Veterans:
VA Backlog Is Easing
ABC News, by Chris Good    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 8/11/2013 4:37:26 AM     Post Reply
President Obama will head to Martha’s Vineyard this afternoon, spending the upcoming week there with his family and a few aides. But before going on vacation, Obama addressed wounded veterans at the Disabled American Veterans National Convention in Orlando, Fla., Saturday afternoon, pledging improvement in the Veterans Administration (VA) claims backlog and touting access to health care for veterans. The VA’s backlog of hundreds of thousands of benefit claims has drawn sharp criticism. Last month, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., called it a “national disgrace.” Over 796,000 VA benefit claims are pending, nearly 515,000 of them backlogged,

While media mogul Oprah Winfrey has been promoting her new film, “Lee Daniels’ The Butler,” she revealed she was a recent victim of profiling while shopping in a store in Zurich.(Snip)“I was in Zurich the other day at a store, whose name I will not mention,” Winfrey said on “Entertainment Tonight,” “and I didn’t have my eyelashes on, but I was in full Oprah Winfrey gear…but obviously, ‘The Oprah Winfrey Show’ is not shown in Zurich.

Nobody tells Oprah she can´t afford a handbag. Oprah Winfrey is one of the richest entertainers in the world, thanks to her willdly successful 25-season run on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" and her latest media foray with the newly revitalized Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN). The entertainer earned an estimated $77 million from June 2012 to June 2013 alone, according to Forbes, but she says she still experiences racism because she is African American. Take this latest incident in Switzerland, where "The Butler" star went to attend the nuptials of good friend and singer Tina Turner last month.

During his Wednesday appearance on Jay Leno´s "Tonight Show,´ President Obama made three factual gaffes; one of them involved the claim that cities not found along the Gulf of Mexico are. Were Obama a Republican, these gaffes would have led news coverage for the next forty-eight hours. Not only did most of the media ignore or downplay these gaffes; the Associated Press went so far as to cover one of them up. In its coverage Thursday, rather than point out the president´s geographical error, the wire service made it look as though no error was made.

The Washington Post is a legend in the minds of the Washington elite, so its financial decline has caused quiet panic. As NPR media reporter David Folkenflik put it, “You think of stories like the Pentagon Papers, Watergate, these are all stories where The Washington Post led the nation’s understanding, the world’s understanding of some major issues.” Outside the liberal media, you wonder how long Post fans can wallow in their Nixon-crumbling polyester “glory days” in the early 1970s. But nostalgia ruled as the Graham family sold the Post to Jeff Bezos, the billionaire founder of Amazon.com.

At a White House press conference Friday afternoon, President Obama said that health insurance plans offered under Obamacare will be "significantly cheaper" than plans currently on the market, but a string of recent reports say that isn´t true. "What happens on October 1, in 53 days, is for the remaining 15 percent of the population that doesn´t have health insurance, they´re going to be able to go on a website or call up a call center and sign up for affordable, quality health insurance at a significantly cheaper rate than what they can get right now on

During a press conference yesterday, President Obama revealed the existence of a sealed indictment in the Benghazi attacks in Libya on September 11, 2012, leaving some experts questioning whether the president broke the law. Federal law states that ´no person may disclose [a sealed] indictment´s existence,´ and that doing so may be ´punished as a contempt of court,´ a charge that carries a minimum sentence of six months prison. The announcement came as a surprise to some insiders, as the existence of a sealed indictment has not been publicly confirmed or denied by law enforcement or

Ames, Iowa — Donald Trump delivered a blistering attack on Mitt Romney’s campaign today. “I don’t know what the hell happened with his campaign,” Trump said in a speech at The Family Leader Summit. “I just don’t get it. That was an election that couldn’t have been lost.” “Every single state that they asked me to go or do some phone calls or some television, we won in the primaries,” Trump remarked. But he also criticized what the campaign had initially wanted him to say in robocalls. “They gave me this most pathetic thing to say. I said,

President Barack Obama announced Friday afternoon that the White House will publicly release a summary of the legal authorities through which the National Security Agency conducts its controversial surveillance programs. ´Given the history of abuse by governments,´ he said, it is important to explain how such a program is managed, and - equally important - what it may not do. He described his working relationship with Vladimir Putin as ´candid´ and ´blunt,´ and seemed to dismiss concerns that the Russian president´s body language indicated a lack of willingness to work with the United States.

EDGARTOWN, Mass. — President Barack Obama opened the first summer vacation of his second term Saturday on Martha’s Vineyard, trading Washington debates over the budget, government surveillance and his health care overhaul for a hoped-for carefree week filled with golf, beach outings and hanging-out time with family and friends. (Snip) As Air Force One flew north, Obama got into a vacation mindset by trading his suit and tie for more suitable attire: khakis and a blue shirt with rolled-up sleeves. First lady Michelle Obama, who introduced him at the convention, kept her yellow-and-white
