Obama, Gore, stop whining
about right-wing media

CNN, by Howard Kurtz

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 2/4/2013 10:06:09 PM

I never realized that the conservative media were so eye-poppingly powerful. So mighty, in fact, that liberal politicians can´t seem to stop talking about how they are running roughshod over the country. My response: Can we please stop the whining? The latest to rant about the right is Al Gore. The former vice president told Charlie Rose that President Barack Obama had been cautious, and when the CBS anchor asked whether there was "a very hostile environment for progressive ideas," Gore had his culprit ready: "Fox News and right-wing talk radio.

Putin: Gay people will be safe at
Olympics if they ‘leave kids alone’
Washington Post, by Kathy Lally    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 1/17/2014 8:19:26 PM     Post Reply
MOSCOW — President Vladimir Putin said Friday that gay people have nothing to fear in Russia as long as they leave children alone. Putin met with a group of volunteers in the Olympic mountain venue at Krasnaya Polyana near Sochi on Friday to wish them success at the Games. During a question-and-answer session, a volunteer asked him about Russia’s attitudes toward gays, a subject that has provoked worldwide controversy, and Putin offered what was apparently meant to be a reassuring answer for visitors to the Olympics. “One can feel calm and at ease,” he said. “Just leave kids alone, please.”

The holiday data breach at Target Corp. appeared to be part of a broad and highly sophisticated international hacking campaign against multiple retailers, according to a report prepared by federal and private investigators that was sent to financial-services companies and retailers. The report offers some of the first details to emerge about the source of the attack that compromised 40 million credit- and debit-card accounts and personal data for 70 million people. It also provided further evidence the attack on Target during peak holiday shopping was part of a concerted effort by skilled hackers. Parts of the malicious computer code

Stark warning: Admiral concedes

The Obama administration’s ballyhooed military “pivot” to Asia is running into some frank talk from the top U.S. commander in the Pacific. Three years after the Pentagon said it was de-emphasizing Europe in favor of the Asia-Pacific region, NavyAdm. Samuel J. Locklear III said this week that U.S. dominance has weakened in the shadow of a more aggressive China. “Our historic dominance that most of us in this room have enjoyed is diminishing, no question,” Adm. Locklear, chief of U.S. Pacific Command, said Wednesday at a naval conference in Virginia. Although Adm. Locklear said it is obvious that Chinese military

Robert Gates’s memoir is not the problem
Washington Post, by Michael Gerson    Original Article

Some autobiographies emerge from careful reflection, others from career calculation. Robert Gates’s “Duty: Memoirs of a Secretary at War” seems the result of a good, long seethe. This is not to discount Gates’s compelling, sometimes self-critical, recounting of recent history — ample reason to read the book. But consider this judgment: “I saw most of Congress as uncivil, incompetent at fulfilling their basic constitutional responsibilities (such as timely appropriations), micromanagerial, parochial, hypocritical, egotistical, thin-skinned and prone to put self (and re-election) before country.” So much for the legislative branch of the U.S. government. Gates is an exceptionally competent, sober-minded public

   

 

  


 
How in good conscience?
Washington Post, by Charles Krauthammer    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 1/16/2014 10:48:50 PM     Post Reply
By early 2011, writes former defense secretary Robert Gates, he had concluded that President Obama “doesn’t believe in his own [Afghanistan] strategy, and doesn’t consider the war to be his.” Not his? America is at war and he’s America’s commander in chief. For the soldier being shot at in the field, it makes no difference under whose administration the fighting began. In fact, three out of four Americans killed in Afghanistan have died under Barack Obama’s command. That’s ownership enough. Moreover, Gates’s doubts about Obama had begun long before. A year earlier, trying to understand how two senior officials could

Environmental groups say Obama

Washington Post, by Juliet Eilperin and Lenny Bernstein    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 1/16/2014 10:46:41 PM     Post Reply
A group of the nation’s leading environmental organizations is breaking with the administration over its energy policy, arguing that the White House needs to apply a strict climate test to all of its energy decisions or risk undermining one of the president’s top ­second-term priorities. The rift — reflected in a letter sent to President Obama by 18 groups, including the Sierra Club, the Environmental Defense Fund and Earthjustice — signals that the administration is under pressure to confront the fossil-fuel industry or risk losing support from a critical part of its political base during an already difficult election year.

Limbaugh on Obama’s executive order
vow: He sounds like a ‘dictator’

In response to President Obama’s warning that he would use more executive orders in the coming months to achieve his policy agenda, conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh scoffed, “This is just absurd,” Breitbart reported. Mr. Obama’s actual terminology on Tuesday was that he would rely on the executive power to “move the ball forward” in order to sidestep a stalled Congress. To Mr. Limbaugh, that’s the move of a dictator. “He’s basically bragging about the fact that he can do executive orders to make things ‘fair,’” Mr. Limbaugh said. “[His] entire economic policy has undermined the old saw about work

Movie producer Harvey Weinstein announced for the first time on Howard Stern’s radio show that he is making a full feature drama to try to destroy the National Rifle Association. Mr. Stern asked Mr. Weinstein on Wednesday whether he owned a gun. The Hollywood heavyweight replied that he did not and never would. “I don’t think we need guns in this country. And I hate it,” the producer said. “I think the NRA is a disaster area.” Mr. Weinstein then revealed his secret project about the gun rights group. “I shouldn’t say this, but I’ll tell it to you, Howard,”

Armed State Department security agents retreated rather than fired on terrorists who were invading the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, on Sept. 11, 2012, according to a report released Wednesday by the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence. The Senate report says that as Islamist militants broke through the compound’s gate and began setting buildings on fire, diplomatic security agents retrieved their M4 carbine assault rifles. The agents then moved toward Building C to protect U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, who had holed up inside. “They encountered armed attackers and decided to return to Building B to take cover rather

Lawmakers seek to stymie
plan to shift control of
drone campaign from

Washington Post, by Greg Miller    Original Article

Congress has moved to block President Obama’s plan to shift control of the U.S. drone campaign from the CIA to the Defense Department, inserting a secret provision in the massive government spending bill introduced this week that would preserve the spy agency’s role in lethal counterterrorism operations, U.S. officials said. The measure, included in a classified annex to the $1.1 trillion federal budget plan, would restrict the use of any funding to transfer unmanned aircraft or the authority to carry out drone strikes from the CIA to the Pentagon, officials said. The provision represents an unusually direct intervention by lawmakers

NEW YORK — Robert Gates, whose career leading the CIA and the Pentagon perhaps didn´t lend itself to levity, is clearly unenthusiastic about the idea of describing each of the eight presidents he´s served in a word or two. But in an interview Tuesday with USA TODAY´s Capital Download, Gates — who after all is promoting his new book — agrees to give it a try. LBJ? "Tragic figure." Richard Nixon? "America´s strangest president." Gerald Ford? "Greatly underestimated." Jimmy Carter? "Too unfocused, too many priorities." Ronald Reagan? "Visionary leader." George H.W. Bush? "Another greatly underestimated president." Bill Clinton? He notes

DETROIT — No sign of economic strife mars the dazzling floors of the North American International Auto Show, where Vice President Biden is expected to lead a contingent of Obama administration officials Wednesday and Thursday in what amounts to a victory lap. The U.S. automobile industry was on the brink of collapse before the administration invested $80 billion to prop it up in the face of widespread opposition. Now the vast majority of bailout money has been recouped and car companies are thriving. But if Washington saved the domestic auto business, it has yet to transform it into the small-car-producing,

Months and months ago, when Barack Obama could be bothered to say anything at all about the attacks in Ben-ghazi, Libya, on September 11, 2012, the president promised to bring the perpetrators to justice. That was before White House spokesman Jay Carney dismissed the attacks as something that “happened a long time ago.” It’s been 16 months. The U.S. government has neither captured nor killed a single participant in those attacks, which left Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans dead. Why?

President Obama has been judged to be ´chronically incapable´ of conducting a coherent military strategy and ´has no sense of what he wants to do in the world´, according to Oxford University professor, Sir Hew Strachan - one of the UK´s most respected and senior military advisers. The damning verdict from a governmental insider of the United States´ closest military ally comes days after the president was heavily criticized by his own former Defense Secretary Robert Gates who said that Obama was indecisive and lacked any passion for his nation´s armed forces.

T ea Party activists and the conservative groups that have enforced their agenda are vehemently opposed to the $1.1 trillion omnibus spending bill that will fund the government through September. On Wednesday evening, the House passed the bill anyway, 359 to 67, with plenty of votes to spare. Sixty-four of those no votes were from conservative Republicans. But it seems pretty clear from the vote tally that Tea Party–style "ideological purity has lost its power," says Jonathan Weisman in The New York Times. "The budget process that is culminating in the passage of the spending bill has ushered in a remarkable marginalization

A multi-billion-dollar high-speed train network linking America with Mexico moved a step closer as officials from both sides of the border thrashed out details. The proposed 300 mile route would link San Antonio, Texas, to Monterrey, Mexico - slashing the current journey time from five hours by car to under two hours. Advocates say the project, which would be the first high-speed train line in North America and is set to be completed by 2018, will provide huge economic boost to regions in both nations.

Have you ever lied about reading a book? Maybe you didn’t want to seem stupid in front of someone you respected. Maybe you rationalized it by reasoning that you had a familiarity with the book, or knew who the author was, or what the story was about, or had glanced at its Wikipedia page. Or maybe you had tried to read the book, even bought it and set it by your bed for months unopened, hoping that it would impart what was in it merely via proximity (if that worked, please email me).

Welcome to modern day governance in America! In this brave new world. vital legislation need not be read, or considered, or debated. Isn´t it enough that the leaders say vote for it and be done with it? Apparently, yes. The House approved the $1.1 trillion spending bill in near record time. The 1500 page bill contains all sorts of stuff that no one has a clue about because unless you´re a graduate of the Eveyln Wood speed reading course, you didn´t have much of a chance to study it. So the 359-67 rout of the forces of prudence and common sense is understandable in
