A Play-By-Play Account of the FBI´s
Heroic Hostage Rescue in Alabama

Atlantic, by Adam Clark Estes

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 2/5/2013 5:50:18 AM

It was initially unclear what happened in Midland City, Alabama on Monday afternoon. There were reports of an explosion, gunfire, a dead suspect and a freed hostage. Combing through reports from both local and national news outlets, though, we´ve been able to piece together a play-by-play account of what happened in the final moments Jimmy Lee Dykes´ life and the first few moments of freedom his 5-year-old hostage, Ethan, had seen in a week. It sounds like a scene from a Bruce Willis movie, except it only lasted a few seconds. Trouble started brewing about 24 hours before Monday´s raid.

Poor reporting and that last sentence leaves one believing the little boy lost his life.

Typical msm.

The account of Obama´s heroic rescue of Little Ethan from an evil, white NRA member is being faxed to the MSM stenographers from the Ministry of Truth.

Some people just need killin´. Thanks to the skills of those agents, Ethan is alive and a evil man is dead.

Another crime that can be placed directly at the feet of the ACLU. FTA, ´everyone knew him as the Crazy man around town.´ Someday soon I hope everyone in the media will put the ´unfettered insane´ problem into the news cycle.

Seriously oversold in the headline, this is no more a "play-by-play" than anything else that has been published. As both the sheriff and the FBI representative said in a news conference late last night, they are not releasing any details about what happened until the investigation is further along. And that ANY was in all caps. So the news conference was a fizzle.

Estes and the Atlantic should be ashamed to post a sham like this "article".

As for a camera´s being lowered into the bunker, the FBI agent specifically refused to disclose how they were able to watch Dykes, claiming that they might have to use that tactic again in some future crisis.

Black Labor Force Participation Rate
Under Obama Hits Rock Bottom –
Lowest Level Ever Recorded

The news media has ignored this stunning revelation from Friday’s monthly jobs report by the Labor Department. The exception has been PBS, which interviewed economist Dean Baker who had written about it in a report published Friday. “The drop in labor force participation was sharpest for African Americans, who saw a decline of 0.3 percentage points to 60.2 percent, the lowest rate since December of 1977. The rate for African American men fell 0.7 percentage points to 65.6 percent, the lowest on record. The decline in labor force participation was associated with a drop in the overall African American unemployment rate of

IAEA gains more Iran access,

The U.N. nuclear watchdog´s increased access in Iran to monitor a landmark agreement with world powers still falls short of what it says it needs to investigate suspicions that Tehran may have worked on designing an atomic bomb. It is also a far cry from the wide-ranging inspection powers the International Atomic Energy Agency had in Iraq in the 1990s to help unearth and dismantle Saddam Hussein´s clandestine nuclear program after the first Gulf war. Nevertheless, the IAEA will see its role in Iran expand significantly under the November 24 interim accord between the country and the six major powers,

Voter Fraud: We’ve
Got Proof It’s Easy

Liberals who oppose efforts to prevent voter fraud claim that there is no fraud — or at least not any that involves voting in person at the polls. But New York City’s watchdog Department of Investigations has just provided the latest evidence of how easy it is to commit voter fraud that is almost undetectable. DOI undercover agents showed up at 63 polling places last fall and pretended to be voters who should have been turned away by election officials; the agents assumed the names of individuals who had died or moved out of town, or who were sitting in jail.

When Dashiell met Raymond,
or the day Hammett met Chandler
Los Angeles Times, by Carolyn Kellogg    Original Article

Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler, the two masters of classic noir fiction, met just once. That was 78 years ago today, Jan. 11, 1936, in Los Angeles. The occasion was the first West Coast get-together for Black Mask Magazine. A photograph taken at the end of the meal shows 10 pulp writers gathered patiently around the end of a table. Chandler and Hammett are both standing: Chandler has the pipe. Hammett, the tallest, is at the far right. Of the 10, it was Hammett and Chandler whose work would become the most enduring. But there was no way of knowing

Weighing power among branches,
U.S. court could tip against president

When a prominent U.S. appeals court last year slashed President Obama´s power to appoint government officials, many legal experts said the Supreme Court would be unlikely to let that surprising decision stand. But that view may underestimate the allure of the lower court´s reasoning to the dominant, conservative wing of the high court, which takes up the case Monday. In its January 2013 ruling involving "recess appointments" to a key regulatory agency, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit repeatedly invoked the nation´s early history and a literal reading of key constitutional terms. Such an "originalist" approach in

One of the most moving things you will ever see is the overwhelming joy, absolute astonishment, and emotional release of people who are suddenly cured of a physical impairment or disability. These moments captured on video for the world to see are intimate and revealing, and they are remarkable because they allow us a window into another person’s world. Imagine what it must be like to have this transformative power that we often take for granted instantly bestowed to another person. Although we cannot truly imagine it, we find ourselves empathizing with these people and sharing their joy in being released

What if Americans rebel against
the Obamacare mandate?
Washington Examiner [DC], by Byron York    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 1/13/2014 5:34:29 AM     Post Reply
The Obama administration is trying to persuade millions of uninterested, or perhaps reluctant, Americans to purchase health insurance through the Obamacare exchanges. But the heart of Obamacare is coercion. If Americans fail do what the law´s Democratic authors believe is best, the federal government will punish them, through the progressively higher penalties of the individual mandate, until it hurts more not to buy coverage than it does to give up and purchase it. But what if many of those Americans rebel? Even if they know having health insurance is better than not having it, what if they refuse to be

Obamacare: Clearly and Consistently Negative
American Spectator, by J.T. Young    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 1/13/2014 5:19:01 AM     Post Reply
Political parties’ real electoral danger isn’t overwhelmingly negative public opinion, but opinion clearly and consistently negative. The reason is obvious: Political parties are neither stupid enough — nor long survive — taking hugely unpopular positions. The bad news is Obamacare looks to be the kind of clearly and consistently negative issue that leaves the administration and Democrats damned if they do, and damned if they don’t. The political landscape clearly shows political parties are more likely to face political difficulties from issues that decidedly and consistently run against them. Most contentious issues exist and persist with both parties hovering around majority

The left-wing group crushed by the right is gone, but its members never stopped working. After four years of anonymity, the liberal veterans want conservatives to know they’re back. In 2010, ACORN, the grassroots organizing group, was reeling from a series of scandals, and with most of its funding pulled, shuttered the last of its remaining offices around the country. For conservatives, it was a triumph. The newly ascendant right-wing blogosphere caught ACORN reps on tape giving their low-income clients advice on how to engage in tax evasion, human smuggling, and child prostitution (the tapes, it was revealed later were heavily and

Inside a cramped third-floor office of Hillary Clinton’s once-bustling presidential campaign headquarters in the Ballston neighborhood of Arlington, Va., Kris Balderston and Adrienne Elrod put the finishing touches on a political hit list. It was late June 2008, and Hillary had dropped her bid for the presidency earlier that month. The war room, where her brain trust had devolved into profanity-laced shouting matches, was empty. The data crunchers were gone. The political director had drifted out. A handful of Hillary’s aides had already hooked up with Sen. Barack Obama’s campaign in Chicago. Balderston’s salt-and-pepper beard gave him the look of a

Hillary Clinton warns in a new book that the “clock is turning back” on women across America and offers a passionate argument for prioritizing the advancement of women and girls. Clinton, the former secretary of state and possible presidential contender, is one of a slew of high-profile contributors to a new report set to be released Sunday compiled by author and activist Maria Shriver and the liberal Center for American Progress. “[Fighting] to give women and girls a fighting chance isn’t just a nice thing to do,” Clinton writes in “The Shriver Report: A woman’s nation pushes back from the

In 1994 or early 1995 the still unknown Barack Obama sent his editor at Times Books, Henry Ferris, the first two-thirds of his memoir Dreams from My Father. He told Ferris that to complete the book, he had to return to Kenya to do some research. The evidence strongly suggests that Obama went not to Kenya to do that research but to the local library to do some borderline plagiarizing. In the way of background, Barack and Michelle Obama visited Kenya in the summer of 1992 and married in October of that year. There is little dispute about the timing of

Washington - Just days after dismissing two top advisers for their roles in the George Washington Bridge scandal, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is facing questions over the use of Superstorm Sandy relief funds. CNN has learned that federal officials are investigating whether Christie improperly used those relief funds to produce tourism ads that starred him and his family. The news couldn´t come at a worse time for the scandal-plagued Republican, who is facing two probes into whether his staff tied up traffic near the country´s busiest bridge to punish a Democratic mayor who refused to endorse his successful re-election bid.

Earlier this week, there was a spring in conservatives’ step. That was because Chris Christie was in deep doo-doo. His career seemed to be imploding, over Bridgegate. Conservatives hadn’t been so happy since the Obamacare rollout (which wasn’t that long ago). The end of Christie’s career would not be a good thing — for New Jersey, for the Republican party, for conservatism, or for the country. He is a valuable conservative, one of the most talented politicians in America. We are lucky to have him on our side — general side. Lately, I have been more and more impatient with 100-percenters —

But I wanted a dermatologist near our home in Beverly Hills, so I asked around and got a reference for a Dr. Wang, as I will call him. (Not his real name.) This afternoon, I entered his tiny waiting room, introduced myself to the young women behind the counter and smiled. The women asked me to fill out several forms, which I did and handed them back.

Maricopa County is Arizona´s most populous county and includes Phoenix within its borders. The official GOP body´s rebuke undermines McCain´s reelection chances should he decide to run for the Senate again in 2016. “As leaders in the Republican Party, we are obligated to fully support our Party, platform, and its candidates,” the formal censure resolution reads. “Only in times of great crisis or betrayal is it necessary to publicly censure our leaders.

With media attention focused on Chris Christie and Bridgegate, it was easy to miss a more important Washington story last week. The other shoe dropped on the Obama presidency. Still battered at home by the ObamaCare debacle and the permanently sluggish economy, the last thing the White House wanted was bad news on foreign policy. But that’s exactly what it got, and then some, thanks to the shockingly scathing book by Robert Gates. The former defense secretary offers the most devastating critique to come from an Obama insider. He paints the president as estranged from the very Afghan military surge he ordered

A LEADING American divorce mediator will visit Washington this week to offer members of Congress advice on ending the "tiresome bickering" between Republicans and Democrats. If US tabloids are to be believed, she may need to visit the White House first.

Not for the first time in their 22-year marriage the Obamas are approaching what should be a happy family milestone under a cloud of rampant tabloid innuendo, summed
