Posted By:JoniTx, 1/29/2013 9:27:54 AM

Ronaiah Tuiasosopo´s side of the Manti Te´o hoax will be heard later this week. The "Dr. Phil" show will air an interview with Tuiasosopo in two parts, Thursday and Friday, USA Today Sports reported. Tuiasosopo spoke with Dr. Phil McGraw last week. Tuiasosopo reportedly created a false personality that Te´o, a Notre Dame linebacker, interacted with by phone and online. News of the alleged girlfriend´s death made national news last fall, but Te´o eventually learned that "Lennay Kekua" never existed.

I think the air has completely gone out of this particular story. It´s just making a sucking noise now.

Lindsey Graham Caught on Hot Mic
Offering John Kerry Some ‘Help’
Mediaite, by Noah Rothman    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 3/13/2014 3:53:23 PM     Post Reply
On Thursday, Secretary of State John Kerry testified before the Senate Appropriations Committee regarding the need to provide Ukraine with economic assistance during its transition from the government of deposed President Viktor Yanukovich. The aid bill has encountered resistance from House and Senate Republicans, particularly a provision to provide aid to the International Monetary Fund which would utilize funds already allocated to the U.S. military. Following that hearing, a hot microphone caught Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) approaching Kerry and congratulating him on his testimony. Graham also offered to “help” with House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH), presumably over his and his

The Last Drug Czar?

It might as well have been a lifetime ago when Gil Kerlikowske began his job as the nation´s top drug official back in 2009. When President Obama appointed him to be director of the Office of National Drug Control Policy—a position known as the "drug czar"—only a dozen-plus states had legalized medical marijuana; a poll showing a minority of Americans support legalization could still be considered "record breaking;" and the disparity in sentences for users of crack and users of cocaine was still 100-1. The idea that two states would soon fully legalize the recreational use of marijuana seemed absurd.

The first bill President Obama signed into law was the Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2009, but five years later, the White House is still talking about the gender wage-gap. At a White House briefing on Wednesday, Betsey Stevenson, one of President Obama´s economic advisers, said female employees need to know how much their male colleagues earn, so they can tell if they´re being paid equally. "Well, you know, one of the challenges is the fact that employers can enforce pay-nondisclosure agreements, and as a result, even though the Lilly Ledbetter Act passed, you know, one of her problems

President Obama on Thursday unveiled his latest initiative to boost workers´ pay, saying he wanted to “restore the common-sense principle behind overtime.” Obama signed an executive order directing the Labor Department to develop new rules to expand the number of Americans who can receive overtime pay. The president was joined by workers he said would benefit from the strengthened rules at a White House event. The move is the latest executive action Obama has taken this year to push his economic agenda in the face of opposition from the GOP-controlled House. He has signed orders raising the minimum wage for new federal

Many Republicans and other defenders of presidential dignity didn’t find the “Between Two Ferns” interview of President Obama by Zach Galifianakis as hilarious as the rest of us did. They need to lighten up, get with the times and tend to the indignities in their own backyard. “Unimaginable that Truman, Ike, JFK, Reagan would appear on Between Two Ferns. They carefully protected majesty of their office,” tweeted David Gergen, the venerable adviser to four presidents. Dan Senor, a former foreign policy adviser to President George W. Bush, also took to Twitter to express his displeasure. “President Obama on #BetweenTwoFerns had

Chris Matthews is already bracing for a disappointing November for Democrats, and he sees little that can be done to change that outcome. “It’s going to be very hard to hold the Senate — I think the Senate goes,” he said on Morning Joe on Thursday. “I think we heard from the Ghost of Christmas Future this week; they’re going to lose the Senate,” he added, referring to Republican David Jolly’s victory Tuesday in Florida’s special congressional election. Matthews offered his own campaign advice for Democrats if they want to minimize the damage this fall: Go all-in on scare tactics.

U.S. Risks National Blackout From
Small-Scale Attack

The U.S. could suffer a coast-to-coast blackout if saboteurs knocked out just nine of the country´s 55,000 electric-transmission substations on a scorching summer day, according to a previously unreported federal analysis. The study by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission concluded that coordinated attacks in each of the nation´s three separate electric systems could cause the entire power network to collapse, people familiar with the research said. A small number of the country´s substations play an outsize role in keeping power flowing across large regions. The FERC analysis indicates that knocking out nine of those key substations could plunge the country

BOSTON — Former Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown has begun seeking campaign staff while aggressively courting New Hampshire´s political elite, marking what local Republicans consider his first serious steps toward launching a Senate campaign against Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen. The stakes are high for the GOP´s national push for the Senate majority this fall as well as for Brown´s own political ambitions. The longtime Massachusetts resident, having recently relocated to his seacoast New Hampshire vacation home, spent much of the past two weeks calling key New Hampshire Republican officials and influential GOP activists, indicating that he was likely to run and

2014 Strategy: Obama´s Top 5 Distractions
Breitbart Big Government, by Ben Shapiro    Original Article

With Democratic 2014 Senate and House hopes receding faster than the rise of the tides under President Obama, the Obama administration and Democratic Party have decided to resort to their favorite page in the political playbook: distraction and misdirection. Psychologists posit that the brain can only handle so many narratives at one point; if we are distracted by problems at home, for example, we tend to perform less well at work. The same holds true in politics: if our brains are occupied with worries about the war on women, for example, we’re less likely to be thinking about the horrors of

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, testifying before the House Ways and Means Committee, was asked on Thursday if she could promise no more changes or delays in Obamacare. She replied cryptically. She was also asked how many of the 4.2 million people who purportedly signed up actually paid the required premium to be “enrolled.” She testified, ”I can’t tell you that because I don’t know that.” She was 0 for 2 at this point. So she’ll agree to put off the individual mandate for a while, right? Nope. Zero for 3. But when it came to the rate

New York- One minute, Colin Patterson was watching TV. The next, he saw pianos flying through the air in the shop where he works as an explosion tore through the building. "They flew off the ground," said the piano technician, who also lives in the building in Manhattan´s East Harlem. He told CNN affiliate WABC that he crawled through the rubble and managed to escape unharmed. At least six people were killed in the massive explosion and fire Wednesday that leveled Patterson´s building and the one beside it. The death toll went up by three early Thursday as additional bodies

On “The O’Reilly Factor” on Tuesday night, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer criticized President Barack Obama for his foreign policy but downplayed the effects of Obama’s interview with Zach Galifianakis in a Funny or Die video on Russian President Vladimir Putin of Obama. “I think it’s a kind of arrogance,” Krauthammer said. “He thinks he has a good foreign policy.

St. Petersburg, Florida- In the first major ballot box test of 2014, the GOP won. Republican David Jolly edged out Democrat Alex Sink to win Tuesday´s special election in Florida´s 13th Congressional District. Jolly will fill out the term of his former boss, Republican Rep. Bill Young, who died in October. Young, first elected to Congress in 1970, was the longest-serving Republican in the House. With national Republicans framing the race as a referendum on Obamacare and a massive infusion of outside ad money to try to influence the outcome, pundits have looked to the Florida race as a bellwether

The vote was 233-181 in the Republican-led House as GOP lawmakers excoriated Obama for multiple changes to his 4-year-old health care law, steps he’s taken to allow young immigrants to remain in the United States and the administration’s resistance to defend the federal law banning gay marriage. Rep.

How would you feel if a police officer you knew for 20 years told you that if an order were issued to confiscate your guns, he wouldn’t hesitate to “kick your door in”? This was the precisely the experience Connecticut resident, Navy veteran and former firefighter John Cinque had after commenting on his state’s 2013 violation of the Second Amendment. The law in question criminalizes the sale of magazines holding more than 10 rounds and also certain semi-automatic rifles, and mandates that all grandfathered weapons and magazines must be registered with the state.

A report released Tuesday by the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform asserted that ex-IRS official Lois Lerner waived her Fifth Amendment rights. Lerner continues to stonewall California Rep. Darrell Issa’s committee, pleading the Fifth again in a divisive Oversight hearing last Wednesday convened to get to the bottom of the IRS’ improper targeting of conservative groups between 2010 and 2012. Oversight member Rep. Jim Jordan told The Daily Caller that the committee is “moving” toward holding Lerner in contempt of Congress to compel her to testify. “I think that’s where we’re moving,” Jordan said. “I think that’s where this is headed.”

"I just do want to say that right after I turned 17 and got my New Jersey driver´s license, one of the earliest places I drove was a trip — the only trip I have ever taken was to Hawaii," he said on the floor at about 3:00 a.m. "You didn´t drive to Hawaii," Sen.

Madison — Police arrested six people believed to be involved in what they´re calling one of the most brutal crimes in recent memory. Madison police say three men planned a home invasion, but broke into the wrong home on Quincy Avenue on the north side around 6 a.m. on February 23. Police say the suspects were aware it was not the intended home, but they proceeded to violently attack the two victims who had been sleeping. The suspects are accused of repeatedly sexually assaulting the woman who was six months pregnant. "I can tell you that in my 27-plus years of

Republican David Jolly won the special election to fill the House seat left vacant by the death of his former boss, Rep. C.W. Bill Young (R-Fla.). With nearly all of the votes counted Tuesday night, Jolly had 48.5 percent of the vote to Alex Sink’s 46.7 percent. Libertarian Lucas Overby had 4.8 percent. Sink lost the 2010 governor’s race to Rick Scott.

WASHINGTON — President Obama this week will seek to force American businesses to pay more overtime to millions of workers, the latest move by his administration to confront corporations that have had soaring profits even as wages have stagnated. On Thursday, the president will direct the Labor Department to revamp its regulations to require overtime pay for several million additional fast-food managers, loan officers, computer technicians and others whom many businesses currently classify as “executive or professional” employees to avoid paying them overtime, according to White House officials briefed on the announcement.
