Baltimore Survives SF Power Surge
to Win Electric Super Bowl

Breitbart Sports, by Tony Lee

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 2/3/2013 11:19:54 PM

The Baltimore Ravens survived a furious San Francisco rally and a 34-minute Superdome blackout to win Super Bowl XLVII 34-31 in what was Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis´ last game as a professional football player and the first major title game in any sport where two brothers coached against each other. Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said his handshake with his brother Jim, who is San Francisco´s head coach, was the toughest thing he has ever had to do. He said Jim simply told him, "congratulations." This was the second Super Bowl title for Baltimore.

Expect more of these sorts of high-profile incidents. Read the last chapter of "I.T. WARS" for a real eye opener (it´s on Amazon).

This is why I can´t watch the NFL regularly. The refs always come into question in the end if the score is closer that 28 points. In this case I can see the 49ers having a beef with the refs most of the game (e.g. running into the kicker instead of roughing, two blatant holds on the kickoff return, offsides on the 2-pt conversion, and the non-call on 4th down). Can´t recall any similar pro-49er calls. Oh well, Beyonce was smokin´ hot, if ignorant.

Poor little Baltimore. Thrown for a loop by a 30-minute power failure. At least that´s what that fool Jim Nantz kept bleating about.

Wonder why it didn´t affect the 49ers?

The fix was in, and Simms was fooling no one with his repeated declaration about the "excellent non-call" on fourth and goal.

Wanted the Niners to win, but must congratulate the Ravens on a well-played game. Of course, the refs were in favor of the Ravens. Since he has retired, I hope we don´t hear much of Ray Lewis again.

I too wanted the Niners to win. The Ravens played well. However, I couldn´t believe how many times I saw Raven players´ hands all over the Niners´ face masks. I also saw lots of pass interference. Not a peep from the refs. No one wants the refs to play the game, but this was ridiculous.

I can´t say that I was rooting for either team. I just wanted to see a good game. The Refs didn´t seem to take my same nuetral outlook as they appeared to give the Ravens most of the breaks.

I hope to never hear of Ray Lewis again. However, I expect that if I follow crime news, I probably will. The two weeks leading up to this game, seemed like nothing but Ray Lewis this-Ray Lewis that, to the point of becomming sickening. It appeared to me that on several occassions, the great, wonderful and stupendous Ray Lewis whiffed on several tackles in what seemed more like a Manti Teo immitation rather than live up to his seemingly overblown reputation.

As a Ravens fan,I guess I should be happier about this but Lewis being gone makes it really bittersweet.I get that people around the country hates the man for whatever reason but he was as dedicated to his profession as anyone I´ve ever seen.

I go back to being a Balto. Colts fan and the hey days of Unitas,Berry and co.Stunned,shocked and saddened doesn´t begin to describe the feelings the night the Colts moved to Indy,in mayflower vans,in the middle of the night.

The Ravens are going to have some tough decisions to make in the off season to make room for a big payday for Flacco.

One thing I´ll never get about football is when a team gets ahead and goes into a prevent defense and allows the other team back in the game.

With two Super Bowl rings, Ray-Ray now has as many rings as he has murder victims [supposedly]. Shannon Sharpe asked him straight out during the pre-game about that night in Atlanta in 2000, and Lewis started rambling about how "...God doesn´t make mistakes." Huh? Now I know you´re guilty.

The Ravens will be a team to reckon with for years to come. Congrats to them [minus Ray Lewis].

Sooo, the toughest thing he ever had to do was shake his brother´s hand after a football fame? Really?

Obama’s rough 2013
prompts a new blueprint
Washington Post, by Scott Wilson    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 1/25/2014 11:07:20 PM     Post Reply
An internal White House assessment concludes that President Obama must distance himself from a recalcitrant Congress after being badly damaged last year by legislative failures, a government shutdown and his own missteps. Obama has said that his fraught relationship with Congress, especially after Republicans won the House in 2010, complicated his ability to promote his agenda. But for the first time, following what many allies view as a lost year, the White House is reorganizing itself to support a more executive-focused presidency and inviting the rest of the government to help. The new approach comes after weeks of

President Obama revived his internal White House political operation Friday in preparation for the 2014 mid-term elections, naming longtime aide David Simas as director of political strategy and outreach. Mr. Simas, who played a key role in the president’s reelection campaign, served much of last year in the West Wing coordinating the administration’s message on Obamacare. He will become the president’s point person for working with Democrats on the midterms, which Mr. Obama has called crucial to implementing his agenda over his final two years in office. In 2009-1010, Mr. Simas served as White House political director. Prior to joining

Google’s Gmail users across the United States, Canada and Europe were impacted when their feee email service went down for about an hour Friday afternoon. The service resumed shortly after 3 p.m. Earlier, Google released a statement: “We’re investigating reports of an issue with Gmail. We will provide more information shortly.” The email service outage prompted the Twitter hashtag #gmail to start trending almost immediately. “For everyone worrying about the #Gmail outage, rest assured that your messages are safely being restored by the NSA,” joked Twitter user Ian Gertler.

Democrats see same-sex marriage
as issue that will mobilize voters
Washington Post, by Juliet Eilperin    Original Article

Public opinion on same-sex marriage has shifted so dramatically in recent years that Democratic groups now see the issue as a critical way to mobilize voters in a slew of races up and down the ballot. Just a decade ago, widespread opposition to gay marriage did just the opposite, allowing Karl Rove to mobilize conservatives in 13 states and help reelect George W. Bush as president. The changing political dynamics were on full display this week as Virginia Attorney General Mark R. Herring (D) announced he would not defend the state’s ban on same-sex marriage on the grounds that it was unconstitutional. Herring won a close election

Stop me if you’ve heard this before. A conservative group applies for 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status with the IRS in full compliance of the law, but gets jerked around for a couple of years in a process that should just take a few months. The IRS tax-exempt unit then starts demanding private information that isn’t germane to the application, but which worries members about just why the IRS would want this kind of information about opponents to the current administration. According to the Obama administration, this is old news from 2010-12, and the targeting of political opponents by the IRS stopped

   

 



 
Sick joke: Anti-Obama filmmaker

Dinesh D´Souza, a best selling author and creator of the documentary "2016: Obama´s America" has been indicted for election fraud and causing false statement to be made to the FBI. The indictment alleges that D´Souza reimbursed some people for giving campaign contributions to a Senate candidate from New York. The amount that was allegedly donated was $20,000. Reuters: Federal law in 2012 limited primary and general election campaign contributions to $2,500 each, for a total of $5,000, from any individual to any one candidate.

Fixated as we Americans are on Canada’s three most attention-getting exports — polar vortexes, Alberta clippers and the antics of Toronto’s addled mayor — we’ve somewhat overlooked a major feature of Canada’s current relations with the United States: extreme annoyance. Last week, speaking to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Canada’s foreign minister calmly but pointedly complained that the United States owes Canada a response on the Keystone XL pipeline. “We can’t continue in this state of limbo,” he sort of complained, in what for a placid, imperturbable Canadian passes for an explosion of volcanic rage. Canadians may be preternaturally measured

Little-known aspect of Medicaid now

Add this to the litany of scary but improbable things people are hearing could happen because of the new federal health-care law: After you die, the state could come after your house. The concern arises from a long-standing but little-known aspect of Medicaid, the state-federal program that provides health coverage to millions of low-income Americans. In certain cases, a state can recoup its medical costs by putting a claim on a deceased person’s assets. This is not an issue for people buying private coverage on online marketplaces. And experts say it is unlikely that the millions of people in more

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell stormed the national stage in 2009 as symbols of the GOP’s anti-Obama momentum, but with both now under federal investigation, Republicans’ unity is shattered and strategists and fellow officeholders struggle to contain the damage. Mr. McDonnell was indicted Tuesday, while Mr. Christie is facing a state investigation over “Bridgegate” and a federal probe over New Jersey’s use of Superstorm Sandy emergency response money — money that the governor badgered Congress to give him. Each were political stars and were reportedly on the short list to be the 2012 vice

Prosecutors laid out a startling corruption case against former Virginia governor Robert F. McDonnell and his wife, but the government faces a high bar in proving that the couple committed a crime, legal experts said Wednesday. To make its case, the government must show beyond a reasonable doubt that McDonnell (with wife Maureen as co-conspirator) struck a corrupt bargain with a Richmond businessman who lavished $165,000 in cash and gifts on the McDonnell family. They must deliver evidence that the former governor agreed to provide his official help to Star Scientific chief executive Jonnie R. Williams in exchange for his

THE OUTSIDE world seems to have grown numb to reports of atrocities from Syria — “barrel bombs” dropped on schools, Scud missiles aimed at apartment houses, blockaded neighborhoods where children die of starvation. But a report released Monday by a panel of international jurists ought to * some consciences. Based on 55,000 images smuggled out of the country, mostly by a defector from the military police, it reports the murder of some 11,000 men detained by the Syrian government between 2011 and last August. Many of the bodies in the photographs show signs of torture; some are missing eyes. More

While the administration publicly expresses full confidence in its health care law, privately it fears one part of the system is so flawed it could bankrupt insurance companies and cripple ObamaCare itself. "Week after week, month after month," says John Goodman of the National Center for Policy Analysis, "the Obama administration kept telling us everything´s working fine, there´s no problem and then they turn on a dime and fire their contractor."

Politics: The Obama administration has turned the executive branch loose on its enemies — part of a disturbing and unprecedented trend toward delegitimizing political differences and marginalizing conservatives. Behind the special status of his presidency, President Obama has used the machinery of government to harass and intimidate political opponents — to an extent greater even than former Presidents Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton, both threatened with impeachment.

The move is being praised by school districts for affording them more flexibility. But some policy experts are nervous because nearly 20 states have since followed Texas´ lead in requiring the advanced math course. Supporters say fewer curriculum mandates give students more time to focus on vocational training for high-paying jobs that don´t necessarily require a college degree.

Marijuana makes you stupid. Nobody wants to acknowledge the obvious fact, but that’s what this whole legalization debate is all about. That’s why most of the candidates for governor, of both parties, have come out against legalization, even if they have to obfuscate why they’re opposed to the Colorado-ization of Massachusetts. After all, the pols can’t offend that pivotal ganja-American voting bloc, assuming they can remember to vote in November.
