Clint Eastwood’s water,
and 9 other amazing
water drinking video clips

Washington Examiner [DC], by Charlie Spiering

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 2/14/2013 2:20:23 PM

(video) In no way comprehensive, the video above features over 10 video clips of Marco Rubio drinking water. Since he became an internet sensation last night after taking a swig from a bottle of Poland Spring, most viewers will be shocked to find out that the freshman Senator from Florida historically drinks water during his speeches. Watch the most amazing mashup of these moments above. . . and always remember to stay thirsty my friends.

Next, I would like to see a mashup of Obama laughing, chuckling and smiling to himself at inappropriate moments, like he´s high. And then a Crazy Joe Biden one!

Rubio will be Borked before he is nominated. The communists always destroy their opponents. This country is rapidly becoming a combination of Stalinist Russia and Nazi Germany. The comparisons are more evident each day.

The press is more exercised with Marco Rubio drinking water than they ever were with Teddy Kennedy driving into it.

He is a role model to everyone, they do say to drink more water, afterall he isn´t drinking Coca Cola or Red Bull or some other sweetened, highly caffeinated drink.

#4, post of the day.

I don´t understand what´s wrong with a speaker drinking water. Isn´t there usually a glass of water at a lectern, and a pitcher and glasses at most conferences?

I´d like to see a mashup of Obama´s great moments, including: police acting stupidly, corpse-man, speaking at the Queen´s dinner during the British national anthem, rubbing his nose with his middle finger, and so on.

The medium is the message. TV learned how powerful it was when it took Richard Nixon down. It is still powerful.
People who tell the truth need to confront it constantly and continue to tell the truth - not just on this safe blog but everywhere all day.

North Korea is really no joke

North Korea: the greatest, oddest, show on earth. What larks. It is tempting to blame Matt Stone and Trey Parker, the South Park creators also responsible for Team America: World Police in which Kim Jong-il featured prominently – and absurdly – for the manner in which North Korea is treated as some kind of gruesome entertainment. The Norks are funny, not terrifying. The press often endorses, indeed reinforces, this attitude. An advertising campaign in New York City promoting the Daily Mail’s website depicts mug shots of Kim Jong-un (the current North Korean leader) and Kim Kardashian (a staple of ‘reality’ TV)

A Complex Issue and a Simplistic Snowden
Commentary Magazine, by Seth Mandel    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 12/25/2013 5:21:25 AM     Post Reply
The Washington Post’s interview with Edward Snowden is bound to evoke complicated, on-the-one-hand-but-on-the-other responses–a complexity that contrasts sharply with Snowden’s own simplistic, shallow conception of the issues at play. And it is this contrast that leaves those skeptical of massive government programs ultimately still in search of an advocate worthy of the cause of transparency, for Edward Snowden is not that advocate. On the one hand, those seeking to defend the NSA’s domestic digital intelligence collection point out that, as Michael Mukasey notes today, the members of the president’s intel review board

Here comes the real Obamacare test

Obamacare has been defined by delays, broken promises and growing disillusionment with President Obama´s signature domestic achievement. Yet for all the problems and political headaches caused by the health care law, the real test for the White House begins on Jan. 1. That´s when Americans for the first time will visit their doctors with expectations of being enrolled in new health plans. And if the rocky last few months were any indication, that´s hardly guaranteed. The Obamacare rollout was embarrassing enough, but in terms of real-world impact, the implications are still somewhat abstract for much of the public. Now the uninsured and

Hillary Rodham Clinton fired off an end-of-the-year fundraising solicitation to supporters of her family’s charitable foundation – and she offered an intriguing pitch. Her husband, former president Bill Clinton, will personally match every tax-deductible donation collected between now and Dec. 31, dollar-for-dollar. “We have big plans for 2014,” the former secretary of state and possible 2016 Democratic presidential candidate wrote Monday in an e-mail to supporters. Clinton detailed her three top priorities at the Clinton Foundation – Too Small to Fail, an initiative to encourage more parents to prepare their young children for school; No Ceilings, a program to help women and girls

Disgraced ex-governor Eliot Spitzer has finally gotten the heave-ho from his long-suffering wife Silda. The couple — on the rocks since the 2008 hooker scandal that forced Spitzer from office — said Tuesday night that their 26-year marriage was kaput. The announcement came only one day after The Post’s bombshell report — complete with exclusive photos — that Spitzer, 54, was shacking up with former campaign spokeswoman Lis Smith, 31, who’s now flacking for Bill de Blasio. “We regret that our marital relationship has come to an end and we have agreed not to make any other public statement on this subject,” Eliot

For the past few Christmases, this column has shined a light on the horrific plight of Christian communities across the Middle East, Africa and elsewhere. This year, a Christian majority in a small African nation and Muslims there are waging brutal attacks on each other — but it’s all being fanned by Islamist fanatics from outside the borders. The killing field in question is the Central African Republic, where a year-long civil war has taken a monstrous toll. This month alone, it’s exacted hundreds of deaths. Tens of thousands are being made homeless. Maiming by machete, rape and beatings are

It’s the time to remember O Henry’s old hoary tale about a girl who sold her hair — a valuable thing in those days — to buy a present for her beau. One dollar and eighty-seven cents. That was all. And sixty cents of it was in pennies. Pennies saved one and two at a time by bulldozing the grocer and the vegetable man and the butcher until one’s cheeks burned with the silent imputation of parsimony that such close dealing implied. Three times Della counted it. One dollar and eighty-seven cents. And the next day would be Christmas… Where she stopped

Between the steady drip of Edward Snowden leaks about the National Security Agency and Syria´s slow burn, it seems pretty easy these days to cast the United States as the villain when it comes to international affairs. That makes this holiday season an ideal one to debunk one of the longest-standing myths about the United States: that it is miserly when it comes to helping other nations through foreign aid.

People who are unable to finish applying for health insurance by midnight may still be able to get coverage beginning Jan. 1 if they can show that they missed the Tuesday deadline because of problems with HealthCare.gov, the Obama administration said today. Officials caution that the deadline remains today at midnight, but will consider individual circumstances that prevented consumers from finishing their application, judging those on a case-by-case basis. This is just the latest extension of the sign-up period by the administration. The original deadline for people seeking coverage that begins Jan. 1 was Dec. 15. It was later extended to Dec.

A world-famous symbol of democracy is going under cover, as workers start a two-year, $60 million renovation of the U.S. Capitol dome. Curved rows of scaffolds, like Saturn´s rings, will encircle it next spring, enabling contractors to strip multiple layers of paint and repair more than 1,000 cracks and broken pieces. The dome will remain illuminated at night and partly visible through the scaffolding and paint-capturing cloths. But the Washington icon -- and portions of the Rotunda´s painted ceiling that lies below -- will be significantly obscured for many months. The project is beginning just as the nearby Washington Monument sheds scaffolding

At the heart of the Duck Dynasty controversy is a modern paradox: those who most loudly celebrate the gay lifestyle seem to go into a Victorian swoon whenever anyone even obliquely mentions actual gay sex practices such as anal sex. As we watch the corporate clusterduck swirl around the alleged wrongs of reality TV star Phil Robertson concerning homosexuality, it may be instructive to take a step back. Image control has been crucial to gay activists. In 1980 Hollywood produced, Cruising, a big budget film that showed the seamier side of gay life. It got pretty good reviews because it

In its rush to pass a budget deal, Congress voted to slice the benefits of veterans, even those who retire after suffering injuries while serving their country. This unconscionable sneak attack on former members of the armed services was evidently inserted into the legislation by GOP House Budget Chairman Paul Ryan during talks with lead Democratic negotiator, Sen. Patty Murray. He ought to be ashamed. The provision would cut veterans’ cost of living adjustments beginning in 2015 by $600 million a year — less than one-tenth of 1% of the $630 billion Pentagon budget. But the pain would be real.

Jesse Jackson has decided to weigh in on the inflammatory comments that Phil Robertson made to GQ about gays and African Americans. In an interview with Drew Magary, the "Duck Dynasty" star said the Nazis needed Jesus, that he never saw the mistreatment of African Americans while growing up in Louisiana before the civil rights era and that homosexuality was a sin. A&E has already suspended Robertson, but Reverend Jackson, his Rainbow PUSH Coalition and GLAAD are demanding to meet with network execs, along with Cracker Barrel´s CEO, to discuss the future of all "Duck Dynasty" memorabilia or content.

What a depressing presidency Barack Obama has wrought. Waltzing into office five years ago with the media’s shameless aid on a high-school-style campaign pledge of “Hope and Change,” the former community organizer from Chicago spent his last press conference of the year apologizing for everything he’s done wrong — then announcing he’s “eager to skip town” to Hawaii for “a couple days of sleep and sun.” Well, 17, but who’s counting. One truly has to wonder how the vaunted White House staff of advisers and sycophants came up with the battle plan for Friday’s presser, the last of a terrible year:

Duck Dynasty gave me an unexpected wonderful gift for Christmas: a renewed hope in America. Polling on various social issues confirm that liberals have made significant inroads towards secularizing America into a culture in which anything goes. The norm on TV is disrespectful kids scolding their parents, cussing, youths sleeping around, the promotion of homosexuality, and poking fun at Christians. Traditional principles and values are on the chopping block. Several months ago, I heard about this cable show, Duck Dynasty, that was kicking American Idol´s butt in the ratings on Wednesday nights.

It´s easy to forget that the tea party movement is still less than 5 years old. Its successes include the 2010 midterm elections, when it helped the GOP win back the U.S. House. It was once again a noisy and resurgent player in American politics in 2013. But that doesn´t mean it was a year of victories: The movement´s campaign to repeal Obamacare failed, and public approval hit near-record lows after the tea party forced a partial government shutdown. Even tea party events aren´t as large as they once were. Even so, the movement had a great influence on both the debate and on the direction of the Republican Party this year.

Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) wants to look tough on budget issues. In an editorial published in USA Today explaining his decision to lead the passage of a budget that reduced vested veteran pensions by an average of $84,000 to $120,000, Mr. Ryan founded his message on the urgent need to “do the right thing.” In doing so, he created a painful irony; Ryan’s budget seeks to save $6B over the next 10 years – equivalent to less than six-tenths of one percent of projected federal spending over that period — by extracting it from compensation already guaranteed to people who earned it risking their lives and defending their country. In other words, despite

Turns out Sarah Palin, who has been one of Duck Dynasty’s biggest defenders, hasn’t actually read the GQ interview that includes cast member Phil Robertson’s controversial comments on homosexuality and other subjects. When pressed by Fox News host Greta Van Susteren whether the language Robertson used when talking about his opposition to homosexuality was graphic and offensive, Palin admitted she didn’t know what Robertson had said. “I haven’t read the article. I don’t know exactly how he said it,” Palin said Monday on Fox News’s “On the Record with Greta Van Susteren.”

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi on Monday defended Obamacare amid fellow Democrats’ concerns, saying that while the politics may be tricky right now, eventually having voted for the health care law will be a boon. “We’ll ride this out,” the California Democrat said on a conference call with reporters. Some Democrats, particularly in the Senate, are worried about facing voters having backed the health law, which has seen a rocky rollout and is costing millions of Americans their health plans — even as it is aided millions of others to sign up or get on their parents’ plans. “It’s worth the trouble, it’s

With veterans´ groups fighting against cuts in military pensions, the Associated Press (AP) is out with a story suggesting that in light of active duty military pay, healthcare, and "quality of life" benefits, retiring military personnel should be able to the weather the cuts that Congressman Paul Ryan (R-WI) has pushed through. According to the AP, "compensation" for active duty military "is competitive with the private sector." They try to bolster this point by showing that "an Army private with fewer than two years of service and no dependents earns on average about $40,000 annually." Later in the paragraph they clarify that

President Obama’s health reform law limps past its biggest milestone in critical condition. Monday was supposed to be the deadline to sign up for Obamacare insurance that would start on Jan. 1. Obama then granted a signup extension to midnight Tuesday — the latest in a series of desperate, short-term fixes. And with enrollment way short of projections, the President’s promise of near-universal coverage recedes into a doubtful future. According to the White House’s no-doubt optimistic count, the first half of December saw an enrollment surge of 1 million, on top of the 1.2 million in October and November.
