The New, Media-Numbed Normal

Associated Press stories on the economy and the fiscal cliff during the previous week tell us that we’re in for four more years of having the so-called “essential global news network” and the rest of the establishment press tell us that we aren’t really seeing what we can see right in front of us. Meanwhile, their headlines and the stories they choose to ignore demonstrate a dogged determination to keep those who don’t follow the news closely from seeing what they don’t want them to see. The AP’s headline writers and Christopher Rugaber already had their minds made up

When I first heard the weekly jobs report on the radio the other day,I had to stab myself with a bayonet to make sure I wasn´t dreaming.Even though pink slips reached a 5 week high,it was good news because the number stayed under 400,000.

In another spot they casually mention that the projected growth rate for the rest of the year would be between 2-2.5% with no real change in the unemployment rate.

These people already know Obama´s economic policies are a failure but they make it sound like someone from Jupiter is causing this problem and it has nothing to do with Obama´s war on republican owned business.

Republican owned small business are the backbone of the economy so it´s and easy task to destroy the economy,simply by going after these folks. They probably have lists of GOP donors,who they´re targeting one by one

There´s two things that are the driving force behind Obama´s twisted policies. One is they simply believe that the white middle class has it too good. They exclude white gov´t workers from this group because they´re mostly hardcore leftists,they need their dues and their votes also.

No what they hate is the bootstrap type people who start out with nothing and build on a dream.These type people are the exact opposite role models they want kids to see.People like Ray Kroc, Sam Walton´s ,among others stories should be part of every student´s education.Instead they´re examples of greedy capitalists.Forget the fact they provide millions of jobs and revenues for liberals to steal..

The other thing that drives Obama is disabling the right´s ability to donate to campaigns.For example,every Obamacare dollar they fork over in one less they have to donate.Obamacare is a political document,not a public policy one.

I always ask myself this question when the old media reports anything about this administration: Would they report the same way if Bush were in office? The answer, of course, is obvious...NO.

A very worthwhile read. Thanks for posting. (I planned to and found you´d beaten me to it!)

But will our readers leave Piers Morgan and other trivia and sink their teeth (and minds) into something like this? We´ll see.

A Hopeless ´R´

After a conversation about politics, my grandmother and I used to say, “Isn’t it terrible how Republican we are? Aren’t we just hard-bitten, incorrigible Republicans? Isn’t it terrible?” Yes, it is. I am so Republican, I sometimes worry about myself. I never wanted to be a partisan (and I never wanted to be a Republican, though that’s another, if related, story). I would rather be a nice above-the-fray type. “A pox on both their houses” and all that. David S. Broder, the late “dean” of the Washington press corps, seemed to float above the parties. And think of two other Davids:

After Democratic Senator Tom Harkin praised Cuba on several issues, Senator Marco Rubio gave what has been called by Miami Herald reporter Marc Caputo as the “best oration of his career.” Its passion and candor about the despicable socialist regimes of Cuba and Venezuela should put those politicians who can actually praise the oppressive nations to shame. The best lines from Rubio’s stemwinder, which is worth every minute: Let me tell you what the Cubans are really good at, because they don’t know how to run their economy, they don’t know how to build, they don’t know how to govern

George W. Bush, the painter, will soon have his first gallery showing. The former president’s artwork – a source of fascination for his fans and critics, in the worlds of both politics and art – will be the centerpiece of a special exhibit hosted later this year at his presidential library. Starting in early April, the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum will open “The Art of Leadership: A President’s Personal Diplomacy.” The exhibit will focus on foreign policy and Bush’s relationships with world leaders, according to a news release. Two dozen never-before-exhibited portraits painted by Bush will be

   

 

  


 
Poll: A Possible Democratic Disaster in
Texas (and Better News for the Right)
Slate Magazine, by David Weigel    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 2/25/2014 6:49:53 AM     Post Reply
Texas, often the most interesting political state in the country, has been a scrooge about polling data recently. The exit pollsters of 2012 saved money by skipping the state, denying us data about how the Democrats (and Ted Cruz) played with Hispanic voters. This year´s pollsters have mostly ignored the snoozer primary between Sen. John Cornyn and a scattering of conservative challengers. But we have the new University of Texas/Texas Tribune poll, the first I´ve seen that covers every candidate in a primary that ends in eight days. The poll´s an "internet survey of 1,200 registered voters"—not ideal, but good enough.

Is Black History Month still needed?

ATLANTA -- They were born long after the Jim Crow laws that officially divided American society were banished to history´s dustbin. Their lives began more than 20 years after Martin Luther King was assassinated, and just 20 years before the nation elected the first black president. They are African-American 20-somethings, members of the so-called post-racial era that began with President Obama´s election, whose lives have been lived largely free of overt racism. For many of them, the very notion of Black History Month is a trite anachronism. It´s a time given over to rote recitations of a few well-known factoids about the

In remarks today, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel said U.S. global military dominance can “no longer be taken for granted.” He said this even as he was in the process of announcing that the Obama administration plans to shrink the United States Army to its smallest force since before the World War II buildup. (For context, the Army will go from a post-September 11 peak of 570,000 to between 440,000 and 450,000, the smallest Army since 1940.) Max Boot does an excellent job laying out the problems with this proposal here and here. I’d simply add that the fact that

HHS official found White House ´disarray´
months before health law rollout
Washington Examiner [DC], by Susan Crabtree    Original Article

A senior Health and Human Services official was so frustrated last May over the White House´s “disarray” on health care before the launch of Obamacare insurance exchanges that he warned of needing a “come to Jesus meeting” with his counterparts. The comment from Anton Gunn, then-HHS director of external affairs, came in an email exchange with Anne Filipic, the president of the outside group Enroll America, a nonprofit with close ties to the White House that was formed to promote the fall Obamacare rollout and boost enrollment — an effort the two were working on closely. While criticism of the botched

Were he alive today, Richard Nixon would have to doff his hat to Barack Obama. Compared with how the Obama administration has swept under the rug the Benghazi attacks of September 11, 2012, Nixon’s attempt to cover up the Watergate burglary was rank amateurism. To be fair, Nixon’s team of Haldeman, Ehrlichman, Mitchell, and Dean were not in the same league as Obama’s, which includes not only his cabinet but most of the national media and much of Congress. If a president were intent on covering something up—something big, such as an illegal gun walking operation to Mexico or a dereliction

‘Torquemada’ John Dingell

Detroit — At the height of his powers as chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee in October 1991, Representative John Dingell (D., Mich.) was feted by 800 Washington lobbyists — representing Morgan Stanley, AT&T, Merck, and more — who laid out $600,000 to honor the ruthless congressman nicknamed “Torquemada.” I was a young journalist in D.C., and the glitzy Washington Hyatt Regency event was called a “Tribute to John Dingell.” Any other town might have called it a shakedown. On Monday the 88-year-old Dingell announced his retirement. His media and political allies celebrate him as a populist man of

Obama’s war on opportunity

The “opportunity agenda” was supposed to be the signature initiative of President Obama’s second term. But recent data suggest his administration is waging a war on opportunity instead. First, came the Congressional Budget Office report, which found that Obamacare will reduce overall employment by the equivalent of 2.5 million workers by 2021 and will reduce aggregate labor compensation for Americans by 1 percent during the same period — a $70 billion-a-year pay cut for lower- and middle-income American workers. Then the New York Times reported that, substitute teachers, school bus drivers, police dispatchers, prison guards, coaches, janitors, cafeteria workers and other

Representative Alan Grayson, a Florida Democrat, is already playing the birther card on Ted Cruz. What? You thought only Republicans could be birthers? In a fundraising email sent out Monday, the bombastic, bombthrowing Florida Democrat Alan Grayson included a transcript of remarks from an interview with MSNBC where he claimed that Ted Cruz was ineligible to be president. Grayson said "since Ted Cruz is a Canadian, and our Constitution requires tha[t] an American win, I´m pretty sure that it´s not going to be Ted Cruz." Cruz, a 2016 presidential hopeful, was born in Canada but his mother was an American citizen and

Smiling and waving and looking mighty pleased with themselves, the American blue bloods sailed into a Westchester County courthouse Monday as if they owned the joint. Robert F. Kennedy Jr.! Another brother (what’s his name?) Douglas! And, first thing in the morning, before court officers had finished their second cups of coffee, the family matriarch strolled up to make a rare public appearance — 85-year-old Ethel Kennedy! Blinded by white teeth, nauseated by a palpable sense of entitlement exuded by this crew, I watched as the spectators parted like the Red Sea­ as the widow of slain Sen. Robert F. Kennedy passed

On Sunday evening, award-winning actor and prominent left-wing activist Alec Baldwin announced that he was leaving "public life"--and blamed "Roger Ailes. And Fox. And Breitbart." In an extended rant to Joe Hogan, posted on vulture.com and published in New York magazine, Baldwin recounted his run-ins with paparazzi, his gay slur controversies, and his ill-fated talk show on MSNBC--but he reserved special resentment for Breitbart. "There is a core of outlets that are pushing these stories out. Breitbart clutters the blogosphere with ´Alec Baldwin, he’s the Devil, he’s Fidel Baldwin,´" Baldwin claimed.

Audio of an internal VA meeting obtained by TheDC confirms that VA officials in Los Angeles intentionally canceled backlogged patient exam requests.“The committee was called System Redesign and the purpose of the meeting was to figure out ways to correct the department’s efficiency.

Former Vice President Dick Cheney responded Monday night to the Obama administration’s proposal to cut the U.S. Army to its lowest point since before World War II. Calling into Fox News’ “Hannity,” Cheney declared the proposed cuts to be “absolutely dangerous” and “just devastating.” “I have not been a strong supporter of Barack Obama. But this really is over the top. It does enormous long-term damage to our military,” Cheney said. ”They act as though it is like highway spending and you can turn it on and off.

She may not look anywhere near her 76 years but Jane Fonda says she is well aware of her age. The Hollywood legend – who has made her career in an industry which isn´t exactly kind to aging actresses - admits she has been brought to tears on more than one occasion recently as she comes to terms with her own mortality. In a thoughtful blog post entitled ´Crying´, which has since been removed, Jane wrote: ´[I´ve been thinking], how come my tears are so close to the surface?

Mitt Romney on Tuesday joined a growing chorus of Republicans urging the Arizona governor to veto a bill that would allow business owners to cite their religious beliefs in refusing service to gay people. The former Massachusetts governor tweeted at Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer (R), saying it “is right” to veto the bill passed by the state legislature last week. Brewer has not said whether she will sign or veto the measure. However, a number of media outlets have reported people close to her expect her to veto it. Brewer told CNN she would weigh both sides before deciding the right thing to

It has the makings of a royal mess for “King Barack.” Monday morning’s Supreme Court argument about the Environmental Protection Agency’s authority to regulate greenhouse gases went badly for the Obama administration — so much so that the real question before the justices seemed to be how severe the EPA’s loss would be. The administration’s solicitor general, Donald Verrilli, pleaded with the justices to recognize the “urgent problem” of climate change, because the “threat to future generations gets worse” with each passing year. But as the argument played out, the court’s swing justice, Anthony Kennedy, made clear that he

If this Harvard University student got her way, free speech on campus would be abolished and professors with dissenting views fired, because radical leftism is the only permissible political philosophy and the First Amendment is a barrier preventing modern colleges from fulfilling their proper role as indoctrination camps.

Republican lobbyist Jack Burkman is pushing for legislation that would ban openly gay athletes from the National Football League, spurred on by the recent news about Michael Sam publicly coming out. He is appealing directly to Republican members of Congress to propose a bill on the issue, telling The Huffington Post that there are five House members and one senator “interested in co-sponsoring the bill” and he expects more to join on. Burkman acknowledges that normally, conservatives don’t like the idea of imposing policy on private businesses, but says that this belief is now “trumped for reason of great urgency or
