WASHINGTON--We spent part of the weekend at the National Review Institute Summit. Less than a week into Barack Obama´s second term, you wouldn´t expect a conservative conclave in the capital to be a cheery affair, and this one lived up to expectations. Slate´s Dave Weigel reports that NRI summits are always like this: National Review has only held two other post-election summits—they save ´em for real debacles. In 1993, William F. Buckley gathered 1,000 conservatives in the nearby Mayflower Hotel, to vent and strategize about the threat of Bill Clinton.

Can Ted Cruz run
for president?
CNN, by Z. Byron Wolf    Original Article

Washington -- While the issue of President Barack Obama´s birth has long been settled, and it´s a moot point anyway since he´s in his second term in office, there remain some people who won´t be convinced. Just ask members of Congress, who even this summer are encountering so-called "birthers" at town hall meetings. With Ted Cruz, there is no conspiracy. He wasn´t born in the United States. But that hasn´t stopped the junior Texas senator from courting a possible presidential bid. The dynamic young senator has traveled to Iowa and other early primary states. If his moves toward a candidacy become more serious,

Who Wants to be Pro-Choice?
American Thinker, by Mario Diaz    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 8/14/2013 6:13:37 AM     Post Reply
The pro-abortion crowd is dwindling. The movement is in shambles. Sure, there is still a lot of money involved in exploiting women in desperate situations in this way, so the industry remains, but its support among the people is slowly dying. It is really being sustained by government. It is not hard to see why not even the abortion industry itself wants to promote its coveted pro-choice label. As was recently reported, Planned Parenthood, the nation´s largest abortion provider, wanted to abandon the word "choice" after reading poll after poll saying people increasingly do not want to be associated with it.

President Obama asserted the unilateral power to "tweak" inconvenient laws in last Friday´s news conference, underscoring his Administration´s increasingly cavalier notions about law enforcement. So it´s good that the judiciary—a coequal branch of government, in case the Administration forgot—is starting to check the White House. In a major rebuke on Tuesday, the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals issued an unusual writ of mandamus, which is a direct judicial order compelling the government to fulfill a legal obligation. This "extraordinary remedy" is nominally about nuclear waste, writes Judge Brett Kavanaugh for the 2-1 majority, yet the case "raises significant questions about the

Speaking to State Department personnel at the U.S. Embassy in Brasilia, Brazil, on Tuesday, Secretary of State John Kerry said that "this little thing called the Internet ... makes it much harder to govern." He also said that "ever since the end of the Cold War, forces have been unleashed that were tamped down for centuries by dictators." "I’m a student of history, and I love to go back and read a particularly great book like [Henry] Kissinger’s book about diplomacy where you think about the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries and the balance of power and how difficult it was for countries

ObamaCare To Punish
The Good Samaritan

Health Reform: No good deed will go unpunished under ObamaCare. If a charitable hospital treats a homeless person who staggers into the emergency room without insurance, it may be punished with taxes and fines. One of the "unintended" consequences of the misnamed Affordable Care Act was to place charitable tax-exempt hospitals in a medical Catch-22: To maintain their tax-exempt status they´re required to treat a minimum number of patients who can´t pay, yet ObamaCare requires everyone to have health coverage. Right now, about 60% of the 6,000 or so hospitals in the U.S. are tax-exempt nonprofits, while 25% are government-owned. The rest

Harry Reid Plays Race Card
To Excuse Obama´s Failures

Mudslinging: Sen. Harry Reid asks if anti-Obama fervor is "based on substance and not the fact that he´s an African-American." It´s not the color of his skin, Senator, but the content of his policies. Patriotism may or may not be the last refuge of a scoundrel, but race is the Democrats´ constant refuge from Barack Obama´s failures. According to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., interviewed last week by KNPR in Las Vegas, Republicans are obviously "doing everything they can to make him fail." And Reid says, "I hope that´s based on substance and not the fact that he´s African-American." Reid can rest

   

 

  


 
White House´s ObamaCare
Delay Confirms Law Is A Mess
Investor´s Business Daily, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 8/13/2013 7:32:01 PM     Post Reply
ObamaCare: Confirming again that its reform is a disaster, the White House has stopped yet another provision of the law before it can take effect. This time it´s caps placed on patients´ out-of-pocket expenses. The delay was authorized in February, but had gone unnoticed, the New York Times reported Tuesday, because it "was obscured in a maze of legal and bureaucratic language that went largely unnoticed" on the Labor Department´s website. Department officials confirmed its existence only when asked about it. So much for open government. The caps, which were supposed to be a "consumer protection" provision of ObamaCare, limit the amount patients

The Politically Incorrect
History of Rodeo Clowns

Despite all the recent furor over a Missouri rodeo clown’s sporting an Obama costume, it turns out that President Obama isn’t the only one who’s been involved with rodeo clowns. As Charlie Spiering points out over at the Washington Examiner, this is hardly the first time rodeo clowns have parodied a president – he quotes a 1994 Philadelphia Inquirer article that tells of the destruction of a George H. W. Bush dummy at a rodeo in Woodstown, N.J. The Missouri State Fair isn’t the first time that President Obama has been parodied in a rodeo, either. In 2011, the Morgan County

OFA Gets Zero Attendance

Not a single person showed up at the Georgetown waterfront Tuesday for a climate change agenda event put on by Organizing for Action, the shadowy nonprofit advocacy group born out of President Obama’s 2012 campaign, the NRCC wrote in its blog. The event page for the “Climate Change Day of Action Rally” disappeared after rainy weather appeared to drive away whatever people planned to attend. The embarrassing showing follows the news that only one volunteer stayed for an OFA Obamacare event in Centreville, Va., last week to work the phones:

What Global Warming? 2012 Data

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration recently released its “State of the Climate in 2012” report, which states that “worldwide, 2012 was among the 10 warmest years on record.” But the report “fails to mention [2012] was one of the coolest of the decade, and thus confirms the cooling trend,” according to an analysis by climate blogger Pierre Gosselin. “To no one’s surprise, the report gives the reader the impression that warming is galloping ahead out of control,” writes Gosselin. “But their data shows just the opposite.” Although the NOAA report noted that in 2012, “the Arctic continues to warm” with “sea ice

As I write, California’s state legislature is attempting to regain for the state the lost title of Most Anti-Gun Place in the Union. The senate has just passed a provision that would require residents to get hold of a ”Purchase Permit” before buying ammunition. Per CBS: LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — A controversial gun measure proposed by a Southern California lawmaker that would require background checks for all ammunition purchases statewide is moving forward in Sacramento. Senator Kevin de León (D-Los Angeles) first introduced Senate Bill 53 last December, which would require anyone wishing to purchase ammunition in California to first obtain a

The sales assistant who refused to show U.S. talkshow billionaire Oprah Winfrey a luxury handbag costing nearly £25,000 claims the superstar lied about what happened in the luxury Swiss boutique where she works. Speaking anonymously to Sunday newspaper SonntagsBlick, the Italian bag lady said she felt ´powerless´ and in the grip of a ´cyclone´ after Winfrey went on TV in America to claim she had been the victim of racism. Winfrey was in Switzerland in July when she walked into the Trois Pommes boutique in Zurich looking for a handbag to match the outfit she was going to

LOS ANGELES -- Oprah Winfrey says she's "sorry" a media frenzy emerged after saying she experienced racism during a trip to Switzerland."I think that incident in Switzerland was just an incident in Switzerland. I'm really sorry that it got blown up. I purposefully did not mention the name of the store. I'm sorry that I said it was Switzerland," Winfrey said
"I was just referencing it as an example of being in a place where people don't expect that you would be able to be there," she continued.In recent interview with "Entertainment Tonight," Winfrey recalled a clerk at an upscale Zurich boutique refusing to show her a handbag. Winfrey said she was told she could not afford the $38,000 purse.

Oprah Winfrey says she´s kinda sorta "sorry" for the fallout that ensued after she told the media about a "racist" encounter at a purse store in Switzerland ... saying, "I´m really sorry that it got blown up." Yeah, right. Oprah addressed the media at the premiere of "The Butler" in L.A. last night -- backpedaling after the shop in question started to refute O´s allegations of racism during an incident last month. The shop owner says the whole thing was a "misunderstanding" and had "nothing to do with racism." Last night, Oprah said ... "I think that incident in Switzerland."

On August 12, Joe DiGenova, attorney for one of the Benghazi whistleblowers, told Washington D.C.´s WMAL that one of the reasons people have remained tight-lipped about Benghazi is because 400 U.S. missiles were "diverted to Libya" and ended up being stolen and falling into "the hands of some very ugly people." DiGenova represents Benghazi whistleblower Mark Thompson. He told WMAL that he "does not know whether [the missiles] were at the annex, but it is clear the annex was somehow involved in the distribution of those missiles."

The Missouri chapter of the NAACP appealed for the U.S. Department of Justice and the Secret Service to launch an investigation and open a federal case against the rodeo clown who donned a mask of President Obama’s face and mocked with the crowd: Do you want to see a bull run down Mr. Obama? The NAACP says the clown was guilty of inciting violence against the president. In a statement reported by Breitbart, the NAACP’s state president, Mary Ratliff, wrote: “The activities at the Missouri State Fair targeting and inciting violence against our president are serious and warrant a full

Last week I wrote a column about the reality that House Republicans are ready to cave on so-called comprehensive immigration reform. There was a final paragraph in that column my editor decided not to use. That is the editor’s right for two reasons: one, every site has a voice they wish to adhere to interns of form and content; and two, he who pays, gets the final say. Ironically, what was omitted by my editor was not lost on scores of astute letter writers who commented on the piece. I would like them to know that I have the same feelings

IRS? A system of voluntary tax compliance cannot survive a dishonest IRS. Lois Lerner and company have virtually ruined the agency. For the foreseeable future, each time an American receives a tax query, he will wonder to what degree his politics ensures enhanced or reduced scrutiny — or whether his name as a donor, activist, or partisan has put him on a watch list. Worse still, when a high commissioner of the IRS takes the 5th Amendment, it sends a frightening message: those audited go to jail when they refuse to testify; those who audit them who do the same

In the wake of a rodeo clown’s anti-Obama skit this weekend, the Missouri State Fair is forcing all clowns to undergo sensitivity training. The state fair commission voted Monday to ratify the decision to ban the clown in question who wore an Obama mask as the rodeo announcer asked if the crowd wanted to see him get run down by a bull. The crowd enthusiastically approved, according to local media reports. But the state commission went further, saying it will require that before the Rodeo Cowboy Association can take part in any future state fair, “they must provide evidence to

The father of one of three Florida teens charged in a vicious school bus attack said his son is “sorry” for taking part in the July beating that made national headlines. As the trio headed to court on Tuesday, Julian McKnight said his son Julian, 15, has also suffered in the aftermath of the July 9 attack on a Pinellas County school bus after it left Lealman Intermediate School in the St. Petersburg-area community of Gulfport. “All I can say is that he had his consequences already, you know?” McKnight said. “This is life.
