So… who’s up for
that carbon tax?

Hot Air, by Jazz Shaw

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 1/13/2013 4:42:09 AM

I know that it seems like President Obama has a pretty full dance card these days… planning inaugural balls, raising the debt, taxing the rich and grabbing everyone’s guns. He may, however, still find an open spot for a meeting or two with his new EPA Chief now that Lisa Jackson is sailing off into the highly over-regulated sunset. But after stalling the Keystone Pipeline, putting coal fired plants and coal mines out of business and flushing America’s coffers into failed green technology plans and burning corn, what more could he possibly hope to accomplish?

Any demonrat that votes for a carbon tax can kiss his reelection goodbye and we all know that they´ll do anything to get reelected.

The tax will be most popular among those who are exempt.

The writer makes good point in warning that 60% or more of us didn´t support Obama´scare, either.

Dennis Rodman and Kim Jong-Un,
Big Pimpin’ in the Hermit Kingdom
Daily Beast, by Josh Rogin    Original Article

Dennis Rodman may have had some extracurricular activities on his schedule the last time he visited North Korea. The rumor in Pyongyang is that Kim Jong Un rolled out more than just the red carpet for the former NBA star. Josh Rogin reports. Dennis Rodman is returning from his third trip to North Korea, and has been enjoying a special level of hospitality that very few foreigners experience, according to sources in the region, experts, and by his own personal account. Verifiable information from inside North Korea is notoriously hard to come by, but in and around Pyongyang there exists a vibrant

Prince Charles Comes

The persecution of Christians in predominantly Muslim countries is the great, unacknowledged human rights violation of our time. So kudos to Prince Charles–a decent guy, but often a bit of a goof when it comes to politics–for being willing to speak up. Last week, he addressed a group of Middle Eastern Christians at Clarence House: “I have for some time now been deeply troubled by the growing difficulties faced by Christian communities in various parts of the Middle East,” he said. “It seems to me that we cannot ignore the fact that Christians in the Middle East are increasingly being deliberately targeted

Huckabee surges, Cruz, Ryan
plummet in 2016 presidential poll
Washington Examiner, by Paul Bedard    Original Article

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, who suddenly entered the 2016 Republican presidential sweepstakes this month, has surged to the top of those most favored by GOP voters, costing support for Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan in a new poll. Of eight potential presidential candidates listed by YouGov/Economist in the most recent survey, Huckabee won the highest favorable rating from Republicans, at 65 percent. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, was dead last with a favorable rating of 47 percent. But it is Christie who still leads the race. Some 18 percent of Republican voters chose Christie as their

New Orleans Sports Fans

For Peyton Manning’s fellow native New Orleanians, Sports Illustrated’s wise selection of the famed NFL quarterback as its Sportsman of the Year was long overdue — but many in Peyton’s native city wished the magazine had expanded the honor to cover the whole Manning family. We all have Manning stories to tell, and at the risk of my sounding far too familiar with a family of good people who probably wouldn’t know me from Adam, please consider my own vignettes as fond supplements to the considerable mass of excellent prose SI just published. New Orleans loved Archie Manning even before he

HOUSTON — He usually has black hair and a black beard, sometimes just a mustache. Like Santa, he wears a hat — though often it’s a sombrero. He dons a serape or a poncho and, in one case, a red and black zoot suit. And he makes his grand entrance on lowriders or Harleys or led by a pack of burros instead of eight reindeer. Meet Pancho Claus, the Tex-Mex Santa. Amid all the talk about Santa Claus’ race, spawned by a Fox News commentator’s remarks that both Santa and Jesus were white, there is, in the Lone Star State,

This evening 60 Minutes did yet another puff piece on a member of the Obama Administration. This time it was National Security Adviser Susan Rice’s turn. Lesley Stahl called Rice “the quarterback of American foreign policy.” If that is the case then Susan Rice is to the American foreign policy what Ryan Leaf was to the San Diego Chargers. However, the most egregious part of the segment concerned Benghazi.

While you were out shopping Sunday for those last-minute holiday gifts, the Navy pushed ahead with its own vision of an underwater sugar plum: a fleet of “long endurance, transoceanic gliders harvesting all energy from the ocean thermocline.” And you thought Jules Verne died in 1905. Fact is, the Navy has been seeking—pretty much under the surface—a way to do underwater what the Air Force has been doing in the sky: prowl stealthily for long periods of time, and gather the kind of data that could turn the tide in war. The Navy’s goal is to send an underwater drone, which it calls

Obama’s letter to Santa

This is an exclusive. The NSA has leaked President Obama’s 2013 letter to Santa. Dear Santa, Thank you for last year’s gifts — Gov. Chris Christie’s hug and Mitt Romney’s debate failures. It helped me win another term. But since my second inaugural, I’ve been struggling. I need some Christmas magic to turn around my polling numbers — the worst since Richard Nixon! Can you believe it? I am more unpopular than George W. Bush. So here is my wish list for 2014: • I need a Republican to blame for the failure of Obamacare. The blame Bush and Congress strategy for all of my

Will Kane of High Noon Pajama Boy wasn’t. Somehow we as a nation went from the iconic Marlboro Man to Pajama Boy — from the noble individual with a bad habit to the ignoble without a good habit — without a blink in between. There are lots of revolting things in the Pajama Boy ad.

On this day 71 years ago -- December 22, 1942 -- Congress got the United States out of what had turned into an unexpectedly embarrassing situation. It concerned the Pledge of Allegiance -- specifically, something called the Bellamy Salute. Most people today have likely never heard of it, but the Bellamy Salute was once a constant part of the country´s life. Until 1892, there was no such thing as a Pledge of Allegiance. Daniel Sharp Ford, the owner of a magazine called Youth´s Companion, was on a crusade to put American flags in every school in the country. He sensed that the U.S.

Anyone looking at the "Duck Dynasty" uproar may wonder why A&E didn´t warn Phil Robertson about the dangers of talking too much to reporters. But it now looks like they did. (Snip)In essence, the network was asking Phil - a man of legendary individuality, who once passed up an opportunity to sign with the NFL because it might interfere with his hunting - to be somewhat less Phil-like. But that is the kind of wobbly bargain that reality TV producers have been forced to make. If they bought the show, they were getting a volatile personality in the mix. A&E could of

While the Japanese were celebrating the bombing of Pearl Harbor in December of 1941, the mastermind of that attack, Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto, had a sobering message for his countrymen. "We have awakened a sleeping giant," he said. Even before the war began, the admiral had warned his emperor that Japan would enjoy early victories in any war with the United States, but that winning streak would last only six months to a year, after which American industrial might would inevitably overwhelm the small island nation. He was right. For the first few months of World War II, the Japanese war machine steamrolled

Let´s get a few things straight about what Phil Robertson said that got him in trouble. Defenses of Robertson, the star of "Duck Dynasty" suspended for his remarks in an interview with GQ, have focused on the idea that he was just crudely expressing the sincere, Christian view that homosexuality is sinful. (Snip) Robertson´s defenders should read his comments again, because their defenses are off-point. If you´re defending Robertson, here´s what you´re defending: 1. Robertson thinks black Americans were treated just fine in the Jim Crow-era South, and that they were happy there. 2.Robertson thinks the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor

Marks & Spencer has told Muslim staff they can refuse to serve shoppers buying alcohol or pork, it has been revealed. The chain has granted checkout workers in more than 700 stores permission to politely decline to serve customers for religious reasons. Instead, shoppers are being asked to wait to pay for certain items at a different till. The policy highlights a divide among the mainstream food retailers over whether religious staff should be excused from certain tasks. In contrast to M&S, Sainsbury´s has told Muslim staff that there is no reason why they cannot handle goods such as alcohol and

Cracker Barrel Old Country Store reversed course Sunday, putting back on its shelves the products it had removed because they were tied to a star of the cable hit "Duck Dynasty." In a statement on its Facebook page, Cracker Barrel said, "When we made the decision to remove and evaluate certain Duck Dynasty items, we offended many of our loyal customers. Our intent was to avoid offending, but that´s just what we´ve done.

I think we can safely call Cracker Barrel’s response to the Phil Robertson scandal a clusterduck. For those sensible souls not following the saga as closely as I am: the Southern restaurant chain became the first major retailer to pull some Duck Dynasty products off its shelves on Saturday in response to cast member Robertson’s now-notorious anti-gay GQ interview. Cue a barrage of tweets, emails, and calls from Duck Dynasty fans to the powers that be at Cracker Barrel, not to mention threats of a boycott. Now, a day later, the 625-outlet comfort food chain has capitulated and will resume

House Budget Committee chairman Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) has doubled down on his move to cut pensions for military veterans in a USA Today op-ed published Sunday.{SNIP} In fact, the deal raises the deficit by at least $15.5 billion because of a series of gimmicks that Ryan and Murray employed in the accounting of the deal -- namely, double counting of savings like the tactic which was employed in Obamacare, and the failure to include an estimate of the interest on the borrowed money for the first couple of years of increased spending.

President Obama and his top Democrats on Capitol Hill appear to have reset their sights on the Republican-controlled House passing comprehensive immigration reform, instead of a step-by-step process, as lawmakers leave Washington for the Christmas holiday break. The president on Friday appeared to urge the House to back the comprehensive, bipartisan immigration bill the Senate passed this summer -- a departure from recent comments that suggested Obama was OK with the lower chamber’s apparent piecemeal plan. “The Senate bill has the main components of comprehensive immigration reform that would boost our

The Bipartisan Budget Act that Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., and I drafted will soon become law. We think it´s a small step toward fiscal discipline in Washington. The non-partisan Congressional Budget Office estimates the bill will reduce the deficit over the next ten years by over $20 billion. And unlike current law, it will provide much-needed relief to our already strained defense budget. One part of the bill has become particularly controversial: the reduction in cost-of-living adjustments (COLAs) for working-age military retirees. The federal government has no greater obligation than to keep the American people safe and we must take
