Obama´s Thunderdome Strategy
Wall Street Journal, by Daniel Henninger

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 1/30/2013 7:38:10 PM

Few are the men and women in American public life who haven´t heard Mr. Dooley´s famous aphorism: "Politics ain´t beanbag." John Boehner, currently serving out his community service as speaker of the House, appears to have been meditating on Mr. Dooley´s cautionary wisdom. At the Ripon Society last week he said the Obama administration was trying "to annihilate the Republican Party." Better late than never, Speaker Boehner now sees that Barack Obama´s notion of political competition is Mad Max inside the Thunderdome: "Two men enter, one man leaves." Last week during the president´s second inaugural address,

Comparing Mr. Obama´s version of politics to Beyond Thunderdome is smack dab on target. He plays for keeps, and will use a pair of brass knuckles to smack you from he rear when you are not looking. The republicans need to learn to treat him like you would a coiled rattlesnake.

ObamaCare´s Potemkin Village
Website Written In Belarus?
Investor´s Business Daily, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 2/4/2014 7:51:14 PM     Post Reply
Debacle: U.S. intelligence agencies report that developers linked to the Belarus government helped create the Healthcare.gov website and may have inserted malicious code making it vulnerable to cyberattacks and hacking. The disastrous rollout of Healthcare.gov was bad enough. But as if Americans need another reason to avoid Healthcare.gov, we now hear that the Obama administration, through the Department of Health and Human Services, has indirectly contracted with developers in the worker´s paradise of Belarus, a former Soviet republic still closely tied to Russia, to write some of the software code used for the website. The Washington Free Beacon´s Bill Gertz quotes one

The Jobless Care Act
Wall Street Journal, by Editorial    Original Article

There are 7.8 million Americans working part-time who want full-time work, including a fry cook whose restaurant cut his hours to avoid Affordable Care Act mandates and confronted President Obama in an online Google Q&A last week: "We can´t survive. It´s not a living." Mr. Obama changed the subject to raising the minimum wage. But he can´t dodge reality forever as the evidence piles up that ObamaCare is harming the labor market. On Tuesday no less than the Congressional Budget Office reported that the health law is causing Americans to work less or not at all, in a remarkable

Creating Killing Millions Of Jobs

Dept. Of Corrections: Leading Democrats said ObamaCare would create 4 million jobs by cutting health costs and unleashing entrepreneurs. Now we learn the promise was off by 6.5 million — in the wrong direction. Here´s what Rep. Nancy Pelosi, the top Democratic in the House, had to say about ObamaCare in February 2010: "It will create 4 million jobs, 400,000 jobs almost immediately — jobs, again, in the health care industry but in the entrepreneurial world as well." Pelosi was citing a paper released a month earlier by the left-wing Center for American Progress, which claimed the law would lower health care costs,

Bozell Takes Aim at GOP Leadership
National Review Online, by Andrew Stiles    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 2/4/2014 6:41:55 PM     Post Reply
Conservative activist Brent Bozell says it’s time for Republican leaders in Congress to step aside. His organization, ForAmerica, announced “an aggressive, six-figure social media and digital ad campaign” on Tuesday against top Republicans in the House and Senate between now and the midterm elections in November. “It’s a simple proposition,” Bozell tells National Review Online. “The Republican leadership that has been championing conservative principles and promising action has just failed miserably. A day doesn’t go by where they’re not surrendering on something, and it is the sense of conservatives around the country that they have to step down, that it’s time

NAACP Official: GOP Uses

The same NAACP official who called South Carolina Republican senator Tim Scott a ventriloquist’s “dummy” is at it again. On Tuesday, Reverend William Barber, director of the North Carolina NAACP, described minorities who support conservative causes “mouthpieces.” “They frantically seek out people of color to become mouthpieces for their particular agenda,” Barber said on a conference call. He also addressed the Scott comments, which he had previously defended. He said his remarks had “nothing to do with color,” because they were intended to apply to anyone who supported Republican platforms, such as South Carolina governor Nikki Haley and North Carolina governor Pat

   

 

  


 
Obama says Fox News´s O´Reilly

President Barack Obama said that he is “in a lot of ways” less liberal than former Republican President Richard Nixon and said Fox News Channel´s Bill O’Reilly has been “absolutely” unfair to him throughout his presidency in an interview that aired Monday night. “In a lot of ways Richard Nixon was more liberal than I was,” Obama said. “He started the EPA, started a whole lot of the regulatory state that has helped keep our air and water clean.” Obama´s comments came in response to O´Reilly asking him if he was “the most liberal president of all time.” Obama also listed Franklin

Global warming is ´almost definitely´

Global warming is unequivocal and human influence has been the dominant cause since the mid-20th century, according to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). The IPCC´s full and final findings on the state of the planet’s climate have been published and the report, which was put together for the UN, says that limiting climate change will require ‘substantial and sustained’ reductions of greenhouse gas emissions. The findings of the report, which includes the comment that global warming is ´almost definitely´ caused by humans, were approved by the member governments of the IPCC in September. The final version has now been released to

Everybody´s trying to figure out, "Why in the world are the Republicans acting suicidal with this amnesty business?" Everybody. It doesn´t make sense no matter how you slice it, unless the Republicans are trying to damage themselves. That´s the only way it makes sense. The only way a Republican push for amnesty and immediate citizenship and all that makes any sense is if, for example, they don´t like

An al Qaeda supergrass is to give evidence against hate preacher Abu Hamza and show he was a ´terrorist with a global reach´. British-born Saajid Muhammad Badat will be the star witness when Hamza goes on trial in New York later this year, according to court papers. Badat, who was jailed for plotting to blow up a U.S. passenger jet with shoe bomber Richard Reid and later released for agreeing to become the first terrorist supergrass, has agreed to give evidence via a video link. Prosecutors in the U.S. believe Badat´s evidence will help convict Hamza. Assistant U.S. Prosecutor Ian McGinley said in court

RUSH: Last Friday I had in a sound bite roster a bite from Nancy Pelosi on the Jon Stewart show that I didn´t get it to, and I really should have, because folks, it says everything we need to know about these people. Nancy Pelosi goes on The Daily Show, and Jon Stewart is asking her question after question after question, and she says, "I don´t know. I don´t know." He can´t believe it. Gotta understand, now, to set this up. Pelosi is a goddess to people on the left, and people on the left look at their leftist politicians

After the 2012 election, Mitt Romney’s loss prompted questions about the future of conservatism. A year later, the ongoing drama of Obamacare’s failures has seen similar concerns voiced regarding the future of liberalism. So what, exactly, do we mean when we talk about “liberalism”? Conservatives used to equate it with the New Deal and Great Society, with the social and cultural liberalism of the late 1960s mixed in. Recently, conservatives have dug deeper and found a different foundation for modern liberalism: the Progressive movement of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The assault on progressivism started with the writings

We´ve had the Gaymmys; we´ve had Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson suspended for expressing unfavorable comments about anal intercourse; HBO has a new series, Looking about three gay men looking for love. It seems as though just about every television show, whether comedy or drama now has a gay character as a regular. It´s not surprising that homosexuality has become mainstream in our culture because nearly everyone has a relative or friend who is gay and we have been deeply influenced by those words of Harvey Fierstein who said, "I just want to be loved.

Just days away from the administration’s deadline to extend the nation’s borrowing authority, Speaker John A. Boehner told House Republicans he sees no reason to pick a fight they cannot win on the issue. “There’s no sense picking a fight we can’t win,” the Ohio Republican told members in a private conference meeting, according to sources in the room. Leadership has been looking for a plan that could draw Republican support for a debt limit increase, and Boehner urged his members to coalesce around a plan. If they do not, he warned, the Senate could move first and tack a provision to

President Barack Obama again denied any wrongdoing by the IRS over their targeting of conservative tea party groups, telling Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly there was “not even a smidgen of corruption” in the way the tax enforcer processed tea partiers’ 501(c)4 paperwork. (Snip) “So you’re saying there was no corruption there at all?” O’Reilly asked. “Absolutely not,” the president replied. “There were some bone-headed decisions out of a local office.” “But no mass corruption?” O’Reilly persisted. “Not even mass corruption,” a visibly-annoyed Obama replied. “Not even a smidgen of corruption.” It’s a far cry from Obama’s May 2013 statement called the targeting “outrageous.”

Coca-Cola´s Super Bowl ad has sparked both outrage and kudos on Twitter and Facebook. The ad, entitled "America the Beautiful," features the patriotic song sung in eight languages. The ad shows people of different ethnicities. The ad also shows two dads rollerskating with their daughter. This was the first Super Bowl ad to feature a gay family, according to GLAAD, a lesbian gay, bisexual and transgender media advocacy organization. The inclusion of different languages sparked comments on Coca-Cola´s Facebook page calling the ad a disgrace and unpatriotic. "Speak English or go home," said one commenter on the page.

There are few medical procedures feared more than a colonoscopy. But what if there was another way to screen patients for colon cancer that´s much less intrusive? Now there is: The PillCam, an ingestible camera that takes high-speed photographs as it works its way through the digestive system and helps doctors spot polyps and other early signs of colon cancer was just cleared by the Food and Drug Administration. The device is designed for patients who have had trouble with the cringe-inducing colonoscopy procedure, which involves probing the large intestine with a tiny camera embedded in a four-foot long, flexible

President Obama, outlining his push Tuesday to bring high-speed Internet access to more U.S. schools, said Americans should demand the same level of technology in learning facilities as they do in coffee shops. “In a country where we expect free Wi-Fi with our coffee, we should definitely demand it in our schools,” Obama said in Adelphi, Md., highlighting $750 million in new commitments from private companies to put digital learning labs in schools. Under his plan, the Federal Communications Commission will also spend $2 billion to connect 20 million students to wireless technologies.

The Gray Lady, America’s Paper of Record, where readers turn to find “All the News That’s Fit to Print,” has gone off the deep end.Last Friday, the paper published a huge story. “Christie Knew About Bridge Lane Closings, Port Authority Official Says,” the headline screamed.Huge. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, during a two-hour press conference weeks ago, had repeatedly insisted that he knew nothing about lane closures on a bridge leading into New York City, after allegations emerged that the lanes were shut down to punish a mayor who failed to endorse the governor’s re-election bid.

As the commentary around the recent deaths of Nelson Mandela, Amiri Baraka and Pete Seeger made abundantly clear, most of what Americans think they know about capitalism and communism is arrant nonsense. This is not surprising, given our country’s history of Red Scares designed to impress that anti-capitalism is tantamount to treason. In 2014, though, we are too far removed from the Cold War-era threat of thermonuclear annihilation to continue without taking stock of the hype we’ve been made, despite Harry Allen’s famous injunction, to believe. So, here are seven bogus claims people make about communism and capitalism. 1. Only

I don´t believe Woody Allen is a child molester. But when I read Dylan Farrow´s letter in The New York Times accusing her adoptive father of sexual abuse, I didn´t think she was making it up. I believe it´s a scenario she´s come to believe after it was implanted in her impressionistic head as a kid. On March 18, 1993, after a Connecticut prosecutor declined to charge Allen after a three-month investigation of the same allegations, I interviewed him at his Fifth Ave. apartment. Soon Yi Previn, then his girlfriend and now his wife and mother of their two adopted children, answered the

One of the biggest blowouts in Super Bowl history was capped by one of the biggest blunders in regional transit history.Overwhelmed by a record number of riders, NJ Transit kept fans waiting after the game for hours for shuttle trains from MetLife Stadium. Jubilation over the Seattle Seahawks’ 43-8 stomping of the Denver Broncos quickly deteriorated into transportation chaos.“Worst train system ever,” fumed Steve Snorsky, 45, of Seattle, whose joy was drained by enormous lines of people waiting for shuttle trains to Secaucus Junction.“I’ve been to every home Seahawks game and I never waited in such a s--t show,” Snorsky
