Award-Winning Humanitarian
Katzenberg Kills 350 Jobs

Washington Free Beacon, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:garnet, 2/27/2013 11:18:07 AM

DreamWorks Animation CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg announced that 350 of his 2,200 studio employees will be laid off by the end of the year. The news comes in the wake of a $165 million loss the production company reported from the disappointing results of its most recent film, Rise of the Guardian. Katzenberg opened up to the Hollywood Reporter about his company’s restructuring: “It’s been very hard. We had 17 hits in a row, and this is the first one that didn’t work for us,” Katzenberg said of Rise of the Guardians.

And when Obamacare hits "Award-Winning Humanitarian Katzenberg" will have 0 employees and 2,200 outside consultants.

Now there´s good executive management. 17 hits in a row; just plan like the 18th will be one as well.

Do liberals ever take account of reality in their projections? Do they ever have a backup plan? Do they not understand unintended consequences? Are they always lock into static analysis? Do they not "brain storm" or conduct what-if sessions in their strategic planning?

Well, obviously the answer is no. And that, my friends, explains much about all of the messes we are involved with, politically, socially, and economically.

Hmm. 15% cut.

I hate to see anyone lose their job (except for Obama and his minions, of course).

But I wonder if old Jeffrey will ever get around to connecting the dots between his support of the Bamster and the fact that regular citizens have less money to spend to go to his movies. Somehow, I think not...

The Insiders: The problem
with ‘no-drama Obama’
Washington Post, by Ed Rogers    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 1/14/2014 8:13:46 AM     Post Reply
Members of the president’s own team have made it clear that the president does not like to be in a challenging environment and that he is generally bored. David Axelrod labeled the president “no-drama Obama” during the 2008 campaign, and Valerie Jarrett infamously said that Barack Obama has been “bored to death his whole life.” And now, in an interview with CBS News, former defense secretary Robert Gates — arguably President Obama’s most experienced Cabinet officer — tells us that he saw in the president an “absence of passion … absence of a conviction of the importance of success.” A blasé,

New Iran agreement includes secret
side deal, Tehran official says

WASHINGTON – Key elements of a new nuclear agreement between Iran and six world powers are contained in an informal, 30-page text not yet publicly acknowledged by Western officials, Iran’s chief negotiator said Monday. Abbas Araqchi disclosed the existence of the document in a Persian-language interview with the semiofficial Iranian Students News Agency. The new agreement, announced over the weekend, sets out a timetable for how Iran and the six nations, led by the United States, will implement a deal reached in November that is aimed at restraining Iran’s nuclear ambitions.

Feds investigating Christie´s

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.

What Liberals Don’t Get
About Single Payer

Documentarian Michael Moore greeted the introduction of Obamacare with an admission many liberals will cheer. “Obamacare is awful,” he wrote. Its awfulness, Moore said, stems from “one fatal flaw: The Affordable Care Act is a pro-insurance-industry plan implemented by a president who knew in his heart that a single-payer, Medicare-for-all model was the true way to go.” Like Moore, I’d prefer a more nationalized health-care system. But his analysis relies on a common mistake that distorts both the benefits of single-payer systems and the deficiencies peculiar to Obamacare. Insurers are the bogeymen of American health care.

Single Payer: We´ve Been There, Done That

Well, our progressive friends are once again calling for single payer health care. The ironic pretext this time is that Obamacare has collapsed into chaos. [snip] But the advocates of the “Affordable Care Act,” as these people stubbornly refer to it, refuse to accept that the crackup was caused by the inevitable incompetence of government bureaucrats. They believe the real problem was avaricious insurance executives. Thus, people like Michael Moore, Paul Krugman and even Colin Powell urge us to cast out the money changers and wholly surrender our health care to the tender mercies of the federal government.

Conservatives on Chris Christie:

Chris Christie took the first step in damage control Thursday by apologizing and announcing he was firing two of his closest aides connected to a scheme to jam up traffic on the George Washington Bridge. But despite a textbook press conference, his longer-term political problem is likely to be from his own party, where the scandal is giving a legion of under-the-radar Christie skeptics room to criticize the governor.Christie´s base has always been his New Jersey inner circle and Wall Street donors enthused over his electability and pragmatic approach to governance. By contrast, Christie never engendered deep support among Washington

The Wars of Robert Gates
Wall Street Journal, by Robert M. Gates    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 1/11/2014 11:33:40 AM     Post Reply
I had been the secretary of defense for just over two years on Jan. 21, 2009, but on that day I again became the outsider. The Obama administration housed a web of long-standing relationships—from Democratic Party politics and the Clinton administration—about which I was clueless. I was also a geezer in the new administration. Many influential appointees below the top level, especially in the White House, had been undergraduates—or even in high school—when I had been CIA director. No wonder my nickname in the White House soon was Yoda, the ancient Jedi teacher in "Star Wars."

In 2014, very few Senate Democrats are safe from the undertow of Obamacare. One who—surprisingly—may not be is Jeff Merkley of Oregon. Merkley, by all accounts, should safely win reelection in November. Elected in 2008 over incumbent Republican Gordon Smith, he’s a perfect fit for the state’s population center, the progressive hipster mecca of Portland. As the Oregon house speaker, Merkley advanced a liberal laundry list of items like an expanded indoor smoking ban, a ban on junk food in schools, and more laws to limit discrimination against same-sex couples. In the U.S. Senate, he’s been a hero to the

Gov. Chris Christie acquitted himself well in his "Bridgegate" news conference, and emerged undead. He said he had "no knowledge or involvement" in the apparent scheme by his political operatives to take revenge on a New Jersey mayor who refused to back him in the 2013 election. He had "no involvement," in the four-day-long traffic jams they arranged on the George Washington Bridge. Learning of it left him feeling "blindsided," "embarrassed," "humiliated" and "stunned by the abject stupidity that was shown here." He claimed personal responsibility, announced the firing of a top staffer, apologized to the state, and said he´d

ObamaCare´s Rude Awakening for the Young

President Barack Obama won PolitiFact´s 2013 "Lie of The Year" for claiming, that "if you like your health care plan, you can keep it." Instead of being ashamed, members of his administration appear to have been inspired by the award. Take the statement by Department of Health and Human Services´ National Press Secretary for Health Care, Joanne Peters. On Jan. 2, the Journal quoted her as saying ObamaCare "is making health insurance more affordable for young adults." That assertion is farcical for most young adults forced to buy insurance through the Affordable Care Act´s exchanges.

Black dogs don´t get as adopted as easily as others animals of other colors. The reason is largely because of some common misconceptions about them. Black dogs are mischaracterized as mean and potentially violent and according to NBC News. Black Dog Syndrome is a phenomenon in which dogs with black fur often go unadopted because of misinformed stereotypes. Black dogs are are euthanized at a much higher rate than dogs with different complexions. Many owners of black dogs say they are sweet, lovable, but also unwanted. The chances of being adopted are poor if you´re a black dog.

Only days after we learned the Obama administration had appointed an Obama donor to head investigations into the IRS targeting of conservative organizations, we now have a leak from law enforcement saying the FBI doesn’t expect to file criminal charges. That’s the gist of a late-breaking story Monday evening in The Wall Street Journal. The story notes that though the investigation may go on another few months, unless other evidence is unearthed, the FBI conclusion will be that the IRS was a “mismanaged bureaucracy” enforcing rules “ it didn’t understand.” Without the evidence, we’re not in a position to say.

White House senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer sent an e-mail early Tuesday to preview President Obama´s plan to use his executive power in ways Americans have never seen before. "President Obama has a resolution for 2014: That this will be a year of action," Pfeiffer said in the e-mail, pointing out that Obama would no longer be waiting around for Congress to get things done. "Instead, the president will use his executive authority, both his pen and his phone, to work with anyone to get things done — whether they be leaders in business, education, Congress, states, or local communities," he said.

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee wants to ban the term "RINO" -- "Republican in Name Only" -- in the Republican Party. The former governor complained in a letter to supporters that during a recent social media outreach, he was disturbed that too many Republicans were attacking each other and calling them names. "Many of you used a term that I’d like to see outlawed from the vernacular of the party: RINO," he said, calling it a "pejorative term" that questioned one´s purity. Huckabee pointed out that he got a tweet from someone who complained that he was a RINO, which upset him. "With all

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

Before Chris Christie’s first scandal devolves into an obsessive quest to prove who knew what, when, it’s worth pausing to appreciate the wonderful, quintessential New Jerseyness of the incident itself. What happened, roughly, is this. On August 13, Bridget Anne Kelly, one of Christie’s three deputy chiefs of staff, sent an email to David Wildstein, a Christie confidant serving as an executive for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which controls much of the transit infrastructure of northern Jersey. Kelly said that it was “time for some traffic problems in Fort Lee.” Some speculate that the precipitating

Minutes after the American consulate in Benghazi came under assault on Sept. 11, 2012, the nation´s top civilian and uniformed defense officials -- headed for a previously scheduled Oval Office session with President Obama -- were informed that the event was a "terrorist attack," declassified documents show. The new evidence raises the question of why the top military men, one of whom was a member of the president´s Cabinet, allowed him and other senior Obama administration officials to press a false narrative of the Benghazi attacks for two weeks afterward.

The case of Jahi McMath brings up numerous critical bioethical issues, especially as we are going into period of health care rationing and fewer choices in our medical care.(snip) In the wake of early enthusiasm for heart transplantation, "brain death" legislation was passed in the 1970´s in all fifty states in the USA, to allow for death to be declared by neurological criteria, rather than the cessation of cardiac activity. This permits surgeons to remove hearts from "brain dead" donors and not be charged with homicide. Despite claims that there has never been a case of a person diagnosed with

On Monday, the Supreme Court heard arguments regarding whether President Barack Obama´s appointments to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) are unconstitutional. The case will probably be a lopsided defeat for the president, with his own Supreme Court appointees expressing deep skepticism of the Justice Department´s arguments. If the Court goes the route it signaled during argument, all the rulings and regulations from that powerful body over a period of a couple years will be declared illegal, at least temporarily until a new Board can reconsider them. For decades, presidents of both parties have strayed from the limits of the

With two weeks left before delivering an economy-focused State of the Union address to Congress, Obama is picking up the pace of his jobs message and demonstrating how he can advance his economic agenda administratively and through his ability to coax action from important interest groups. “We’re not just going to be waiting for legislation in order to make sure that we’re providing Americans the kind of help
