Johanns: ´Chuck earned
his endorsement´

Lincoln Journal Star [Neb], by Don Walton

Original Article

Posted By:BuckeyeRon, 2/2/2013 5:52:57 PM

Sen. Mike Johanns said Saturday he will vote to confirm Chuck Hagel´s nomination for secretary of defense. In the wake of Hagel´s contentious confirmation hearing before the Senate Armed Services Committee on Thursday, the green light from Nebraska´s senior Republican senator could be timely and pivotal in helping pave the way for additional Republican support in the Senate. As Johanns noted in a telephone interview, he is the member of the Senate who knows Nebraska´s former Republican senator best. But, Johanns said, "do not think he got a pass from me because he´s a friend."

He got a pass because Sen Johanns is an idiot.

You have to remember that the same group of establishment Republicans in Nebraska who are the leaders of Johann´s base where the same for Hagel.

Then add on the fact that the US Senate is a club.

Thank you #10. It was a jaw- dropping experience to see all Republican strategists, analysts, former and present elected Republicans pontificating yesterday. Yes, all admit Hagel obviously demonstrated nothing near competence at the hearing. But when asked, the dolts calmly say oh yeah he will get through! TERM LIMITS. We have been fools to let them talk us out of it all these years. Johanns figures the folks in his district will still keep him.

Yeah, it´s beyond disgusting to see the likes of Hagel win approval, but I honestly have a hard time really caring because the sad reality is that the next nominee to come from the Kenyan would probably make our hair stand on end. We´re in an untenable situation since the election and I just don´t see anyway out soon by conventional means.

#18, I believe the Nebraska Senator who voted for Obama Care in return for the so-called "Cornhusker Kickback" was a Democrat named Ben Nelson. Apparently that vote rendered him unelectable in Nebraska so he retired. Now he has a big lobbying job in Washington, DC for the insurance industry.

When Hagel was in the Senate representing Nebraska as a RINO Republican, he never lived there, and was in actuality a Democrat when he was in Washington, DC. When the folks out in Nebraska figured that out they rendered Hagel as being unelectable and he retired.

Then they had Bob Kerrey, a big time liberal Democrat, who has lived in New York city for over a decade, who Harry Reid recruited and sent back to Nebraska to run for Nelson´s old senate seat in last years election. Kerrey lost, and quickly moved to San Francisco.

I´ve never been more ashamed to call myself a Republican than during the last week. Those who should be ashamed are they who have frantically labored to smear Chuck Hagel. I also get a kick of non-Jews throwing around the Anti-semitic slur about a guy who has been backed by the Anti Defemation League. and then there are the challenges to his patriotism -- imagine challenging a man who faced death in Vietnam for his patriotism? A new low for the my sad sack of a party. Amnesty and character assassination of fellow Republicans-- interesting way to try to rebuild after 2012 elections. Hello, wilderness. Might as well get used to it.

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: I´ve gotta tell, another little thing about Nelson Mandela. Do you realize in a couple of ways, maybe even more than a couple, Nelson Mandela has more in common or had more in common with Clarence Thomas than he does with Barack Obama? For example, Nelson Mandela (even prior to becoming president, but certainly after he became president of South Africa) insisted on compliance with his country´s constitution. He insisted on it. Obama looks at the US Constitution as an obstacle and makes end runs around it every day, practically. In that sense... These are the kind of

The U.S. federal health insurance website HealthCare.gov, which has had technology problems since its October 1 launch, is now experiencing errors in transmitting applications about 10 percent of the time, a government spokeswoman said on Friday. The online insurance marketplace relays information about new customers in ´834´ transaction forms to the private insurance companies that provide the health plans. HealthCare.gov serves people in 36 states, while 14 states are running their own websites. "We believe nine of 10 transactions are being successfully transmitted," the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, or CMS, spokeswoman Julie Bataille said at a news briefing.

He said the Justice Department should prosecute Clapper for giving false testimony during a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing in March. During that hearing, Sen.

To fully appreciate what former South African president Nelson Mandela was able to accomplish, it is necessary to hearken back to the South Africa he found when he emerged from prison in 1990, and what the country was like in those critical four years between his release and his election to the presidency in 1994. Put simply, South Africa was a violent, dangerous and heavily-armed place teetering precariously on the edge of an all-out race war. And in the early 1990s, it was entirely unclear which way the country would go. On one side, embittered white rejectionists were refusing to

Nelson Mandela was the most famous black man in history. He transcended race barriers to become an exemplar of human generosity of spirit. His towering personality made possible the peaceful transfer of power in South Africa from white minority to black majority rule. If he was less effective as president of his country than he had been as the symbol of resistance to apartheid, he demonstrated statesmanship unmatched in Africa. He inspired love as much as respect, and became regarded by hundreds of millions of people as a secular saint. More was asked of him, and sometimes claimed for him,

Former South African President Nelson Mandela has died at age 95 of complications from a recurring lung infection. The anti-apartheid leader and Nobel Peace Prize laureate was a beloved figure around the world, a symbol of reconciliation from a country with a brutal history of racism. Mandela was released from prison in 1990 after nearly 30 years for plotting to overthrow South Africa´s apartheid government. In 1994, in a historic election, he became the nation´s first black leader. Mandela stepped down in 1999 after a single term and retired from political and public life.

Walker County Sheriff Steve Wilson said Hendricks has not been charged. However he said the investigation continues and did not rule out the possibility of charges in the future. The sheriff said Hendricks heard a suspicious sound outside the house and called 911.

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine.

Public Trust: Sixty-one percent polled say President Obama lies "some of the time" or "most of the time" on matters of national importance. Americans have to ask: Why do we let him get away with it? It´s no surprise that a Fox News poll of 1,012 registered voters last week found immense distrust of a president whose main domestic initiative was based on a lie. The shock is that the same poll found his disapproval level down to its lowest since last fall. Asked, "How often do you think Barack Obama lies to the country on important matters?" 37% replied "most of

Perhaps the most remarkable feature of American democracy is the magnificent estate of public land that it reserved from the very beginning for the use of all citizens, rich or poor. There is nothing like it in the democracies of Europe, which came into being with nations already carved up into private fiefdoms. The Great Idea that hundreds of millions of acres of forests, deserts, rivers and prairies should be owned by, and managed for, the public interest has had a profound and lasting influence on American culture.
