The Beast That Reagan Aimed
To Starve Gorges Under Obama

Investors Business Daily, by Victor Davis Hanson

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 1/10/2013 7:38:18 PM

As a senator and presidential candidate, Barack Obama said that he detested budget deficits. In 2006, when the aggregate national debt was almost $8 trillion less than today, he blasted George W. Bush´s chronic borrowing and refused to vote for upping the debt ceiling: "Increasing America´s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that ´the buck stops here.´" In 2008, Obama further blasted Bush´s continued Keynesian borrowing: "The problem is, is that the way Bush has done it over the last eight years is to take out a credit card from the Bank of China

As usual, Victor hits the nail on the head.
The question is, how do we stop the free fall we are now in?

The Other Targeting Scandal
Wall Street Journal, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 8/6/2013 7:41:26 PM     Post Reply
The IRS targeting scandal is best understood as part of a larger effort to limit the political speech of conservatives and business groups. That became clearer last week regarding the Federal Election Commission, and now evidence is spreading to the Securities and Exchange Commission. Senior Republicans on the House Oversight Committee recently wrote to new SEC Chairman Mary Jo White to report on disturbing events that occurred under her predecessor, and to request agency documents. As at the IRS, there´s an emerging pattern at the SEC of

Kill ObamaCare

Politics: Republicans who´ve been viciously attacking a last-ditch defund ObamaCare effort should ask themselves: Will getting rid of this $1.4 trillion entitlement program be easier two years from now? Or four? Some Republicans and conservative pundits are in a lather lately, throwing brickbats like "the dumbest idea I´ve ever heard," "a fantasy," "the definition of insanity," "nuts" and something that will "deliver nothing other than pain." Oh, wait. Those aren´t criticisms of ObamaCare. They´re complaints from the likes of GOP Sens. Richard Burr and Tom Coburn, and various conservative pundits and bloggers about a proposal to defund ObamaCare.

Americans More Generous Than

Benevolence: A European either living off or managing a nanny state would say that Americans´ contempt for welfare regimes is based on greed. But if Americans are so selfish, how can they be so charitable? In no European economy are the people more generous with their own money than the people of the U.S. According to Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development data, which have been thoughtfully assembled by Cato scholar Dan Mitchell, the total of Americans´ voluntary social spending reached 10.2% of GDP in 2009, the latest year for which numbers are available.

Al-Qaida Plot Distraction Is
Too Well-Timed For Obama
Investor´s Business Daily, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 8/6/2013 6:52:15 PM     Post Reply
War On Terror: The way the White House has hyped a supposedly imminent al-Qaida plot, only one thing has to happen for President Obama to come off as a hero: nothing. It smells fishy. It´s not at the level of Robert De Niro and Dustin Hoffman cinematically fabricating a war with Albania to get the public´s mind off a presidential sex scandal, as in David Mamet´s 1997 black comedy "Wag the Dog," but the indefinite shutdown of 20 U.S. embassies in the Mideast and Africa after the announcement of a for-sure, impending terrorist mega-attack looks suspiciously gift-wrapped and well-timed

The American Geophysical Union has definitively linked climate change to humanity’s reliance on fossil fuels. In a statement, the Union said that humanity is the major influence on the global climate change observed over the past 50 years. It claimed that human-caused increases in greenhouse gases are responsible for most of the observed global average surface warming of roughly 0.8°C (1.5°F) over the past 140 years. ´There is only one thing that is going straight up … that is the greenhouse gases that we are just pumping at an exponential rate,´ Gerald North, an atmospheric scientist at Texas A&M

CIA Director John Brennan wrote to his agency´s Benghazi survivors on May 30, instructing them that while they were under no obligation to speak to Congress, they could testify in closed committee hearings if they wanted to. ´The Agency will support and facilitate contact with [congressional] committees,´ he wrote, for any employee who wanted to talk. The letter, first published online by The Weekly Standard, suggests that Republicans in the House and Senate have overreacted to their inability to get CIA witnesses to testify on the record. Several Republicans have expressed frustration at what they see as a gag order

The United States government has filed its first criminal charges pertaining to the 9/11/12 attacks on the Benghazi diplomatic facility, according to CNN’s justice and national-security correspondent Evan Perez. Ahmed Khattalah, a Libyan militia leader, is believed to have been involved in the attacks that resulted in the death of four Americans, including U.S. ambassador Christopher Stevens. CNN’s sources did not reveal the exact charges brought against Khattalah. Khattalh has been described as “propagating an al Qaeda-style ideology” by both Libyan government officials and former Islamic militants, and his group, based

On Morning Joe today, Representative Peter King said he thinks al-Qaeda’s current head, Ayman al-Zawahiri, is a more active leader than Osama bin Laden, his predecessor. ”In many ways, he’s more active than bin Laden was as far as monitoring a situation,” the New York Republican explained. “He’s more the chairman of the board right now.” King, the chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security, also warned that the recent threat that prompted the U.S. to close embassies across the Middle East and Africa is not just limited to the region. “It can be anywhere in the world,”

Remember how the sequester was going to force the federal government to slash vital services? Not only didn´t it happen, but the Labor Department´s Women´s Bureau is still in operation. As its acting director, Latifa Lyles, explains in a blog post, the bureau was established in the year of Helen Thomas´s birth to "promote the welfare of wage-earning women, improve their working conditions, increase their efficiency and advance their opportunities for profitable employment." If you thought that mission was accomplished sometime around 1973, think again.

In 2008 and then again in 2012, after retired four-star General Colin Powell endorsed and then voted for Barack Obama, the former Secretary of State´s sanity was already in question. At least now, after having his email account hacked by high-level security-breacher Guccifer, Colin Powell´s besmirching of the Republican Party´s "shift to the right" and "identity crisis" finally makes sense. It seems that for years the mannerly and always professional Colin Powell has been cyber-comporting with a 46-year-old Romanian European Parliament member, Social Democrat, and past spokesperson for Romanian president Ion Iliescu named Corina Cretu

Conservatives have for years attempted to put our finger upon precisely why Barack Obama strikes us as queer in precisely the way he does. There is an alienness about him, which in the fever swamps is expressed in all that ridiculous Kenyan-Muslim hokum, but his citizen-of-the-world shtick is strictly sophomore year — the great globalist does not even speak a foreign language. Obama has been called many things — radical, socialist — labels that may have him dead to rights at the phylum level but not down at his genus or species. His social circle includes

For nearly a year, we have had no answer to why the administration lied about Benghazi — why it told the world, not to mention the parents of our murdered SEALs at the funeral of their sons, that the cause of that fatal conflagration was an anti-Islamic video no one saw, when the various arms of our executive branch (White House, State and intelligence) already knew, or strongly suspected, it was a terror attack orchestrated by al-Qaeda affiliates. You only have to read the now infamous talking points to know that. That this lie was deeply immoral is obvious.

Today, across Africa, Araby and Asia, from Nouakchott to Dhaka, the diplomatic facilities of the United States are closed. There’s a Tsarnaev out there, somewhere – could be the Mahgreb, the Levant, the Horn of Africa, the Indian sub-continent – who knows? So, as Richard Fernandez writes, “Shelter in place, this time globally.” Maybe it will work. Maybe by the end of the day there will be, unlike Benghazi a year on, men in custody. But if not? Daniel Pipes: Don’t know about you, but I find this pre-emptive cringing unworthy of a great country, even humiliating.

The truth about Benghazi, the Associated Press/James Rosen monitoring, the IRS corruption, the NSA octopus, and Fast and Furious is still not exactly known. Almost a year after the attacks on our Benghazi facilities, we are only now learning details of CIA gun-running, military stand-down orders, aliases of those involved who are still hard to locate, massaged talking points, and the weird jailing of Nakoula Basseley Nakoula. We still do not quite know why Eric Holder’s Justice Department went after the Associated Press or Fox News’s James Rosen — given that members of the administration were themselves illegally leaking

WASHINGTON — Former Massachusetts lawmaker Barney Frank revealed that he doesn’t believe in God. During Friday’s appearance on HBO’s “Real Time With Bill Maher,” Frank, who championed the decriminalization of pot while serving in the House of Representatives, admitted to smoking marijuana and being an atheist. “You were in a fairly safe district. You were not one of those congress people who would have to worry about every little thing,” Maher said to Frank. “You could come on this show and sit next to a pot-smoking atheist and it wouldn’t bother you.”

In an interview for The Guardian Weekend magazine, actor Matt Damon recently weighed in with his thoughts on how President Barack Obama has handled the scandals that have engulfed his administration since the spring. Damon, a vocal supporter of the president since his 2008 campaign for national office, said that Obama is overcompensating for his lack of military background with his tough response to controversies like how the government is responding to National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden. The actor said that Obama is allowing himself to “get bullied” and is acting as though is “manhood”

The Pentagon has placed its elite cadre of special operations teams on full alert to launch preemptive attacks against suspected al Qaeda targets across the globe, according to reports. The American special forces teams have spent the past week waiting for U.S. military and intelligence officials to confirm the whereabouts of the terror cell plotting to attack U.S. diplomatic outposts in the Mideast and North Africa. Unnamed sources told CNN on Monday that the teams were poised to carry out the preemptive strikes, but declined to comment on where the U.S. forces were located or which potential

Winfrey said that, in her mind, Martin’s murder and that of Emmett Till in 1955 – whose killers were also acquitted – were the “same thing.” However, she added that it is important to keep in mind how much race relations in America have progressed over the last half-century.
