President Obama´s actions show
he isn´t serious about governing

Washington Examiner [DC], by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 3/1/2013 5:45:36 AM

In a few days," President Obama said earlier this week, "Congress might allow a series of immediate, painful, arbitrary budget cuts to take place -- known in Washington as the sequester. Instead of cutting out the government spending we don´t need -- wasteful programs that don´t work, special-interest tax loopholes and tax breaks -- what the sequester does is it uses a meat-cleaver approach to gut critical investments in things like education and national security and lifesaving medical research." The "arbitrary" cuts begin today, but they didn´t have to. Senate Republicans listened to Obama. Although they didn´t yield to his demand

funny how the signature of BHO on the sequester bill seems to have been made with disappearing ink

It´s not that he isn´t serious about ´governing´...

It´s simply that it interferes so badly with his primary occupation of admiring himself in the nearest mirror.

IRS Union Tied to FEC
American Spectator, by Jeffrey Lord    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 8/7/2013 6:12:56 AM     Post Reply
Let’s follow the bread crumb trail. The National Treasury Employees Union (NTEU) represents the bureaucracy that staffs the Internal Revenue Service. The IRS. The NTEU also represents the bureaucracy that staffs the Federal Elections Commission. The FEC. The NTEU has a political action committee — the Treasury Employees Political Action Committee. TEPAC. TEPAC routinely gives over 90% of its contributions to Democrats (94% in 2012, 98% in 2010, 96% in 2008 and so on and on and on). Now. In the last week, Americans have been informed courtesy of The Wall Street Journal among others of an episode involving Lois Lerner, she the now-infamous IRS official

Benghazi: Is the Alleged
CIA Scandal Real?
Power Line, by John Hinderaker    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 8/7/2013 6:06:18 AM     Post Reply
Over the last week, there has been a lot of buzz about a supposed CIA angle to the Benghazi story. Specifically, it has been alleged that a substantial number of CIA employees were on the ground in Benghazi, carrying out a mission that involved rounding up Libyan weapons and transferring them to rebels in Syria. Further, it has been reported that the CIA has leaned on its employees not to cooperate with Congressional investigations or the media, and it has been suggested that the CIA’s role in Benghazi may be related to the al Qaeda

President Barack Obama lashed out at Russia’s treatment of its small population of sexual minorities on Tuesday, but he downplayed the massive intelligence victory over the United States that Russian strongman Vladimir Putin won by helping engineer Edward Snowden’s defection. During an appearance on NBC’s “The Tonight Show,” Obama told host Jay Leno said he has “no patience for countries that try to treat gays and lesbians and transgendered persons in ways that intimidate them or are harmful to them.” “I have been very clear that when it comes to universal rights, when it comes to people’s basic freedoms,

On a bright Thursday afternoon in 2007, Jennifer Boatright, a waitress at a Houston bar-and-grill, drove with her two young sons and her boyfriend, Ron Henderson, on U.S. 59 toward Linden, Henderson’s home town, near the Texas-Louisiana border. They made the trip every April, at the first signs of spring, to walk the local wildflower trails and spend time with Henderson’s father. This year, they’d decided to buy a used car in Linden, which had plenty for sale, and so they bundled their cash savings in their car’s center console. Just after dusk, they passed a sign

After widely mocked pitch

His aides wanted to delete it from his speech, and President George W. Bush was mocked by ESPN and Meryl Streep for it afterward. But when he used his 2004 State of the Union address to raise the issue of steroids in baseball, it boosted the issue to the top levels of politics. Nine years later, analysts say Major League Baseball may never have reached the point this week where it issued the biggest suspensions in 90 years had official Washington not turned the spotlight on performance enhancing drugs (PEDs). Soon after Mr. Bush’s remarks, a House committee

It’s not often that the zeitgeist whups both of the newspapers the Right loves to hate — the Washington Post and the New York Times — upside the head with a righteous shillelagh simultaneously, but (as Mattie Ross says in True Grit) it did happen. In fact, it happened this week. Let’s start with the Times and its fawning portrait of the Post’s publisher, Katharine Weymouth, which went online on Friday and appeared in print on Sunday. The lengthy — very lengthy — article begins: On the eve of the 2012 White House Correspondents’ Dinner, this city’s annual media-politico-Hollywood love fest,

The Town Hall Outrage Over
Obamacare Has Begun
Atlantic, by Philip Bump    Original Article

The Tea Party made its name with its outraged appearances against healthcare reform at Congressmembers´ town hall meetings during the August recess in 2009. With one of the first major milestones of that reform (lovingly dubbed "Obamacare") approaching on October 1, Tea Party advocates pledged to reignite that outrage. As two members of Congress can attest, pushback from conservative activists has begun. One of those members handled it better than the other. Talking Points Memo found video of the exchange between North Carolina Rep. Robert Pittenger and a few of the people who came to his town hall meeting

The Department of Health and Human Services is beginning a public effort to educate and train Americans about health insurance ahead of the implementation of parts of Obamacare this fall. USA Today reports that HHS and Secretary Kathleen Sebelius have launched a new website and videos (including this one about the Obamacare exchanges) and will include travel by government officials to promote the law. "Sebelius said the department has lost about $15.5 billion from its budget due to the mandatory cuts, called sequestration, that started March 1," USA Today reports.

Hillary: The movies
New York Post, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 8/7/2013 5:30:54 AM     Post Reply
Poor Hillary. In 2008, she was set for her coronation as the Democratic candidate for president — until a young Illinois senator came out of nowhere to take it from her. Signs now suggest she’s running in 2016 — and once again Barack Obama may be gumming up the works. This time the issue involves two biopics planned respectively by CNN and NBC, which would run during the 2016 election cycle or just before. Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus says this amounts to a “political ad” for Hillary Clinton. And he’s threatening to ban the two networks from hosting

Al Qaeda Conference Call
Intercepted by U.S.
Officials Sparked Alerts

The crucial intercept that prompted the U.S. government to close embassies in 22 countries was a conference call between al Qaeda’s senior leaders and representatives of several of the group’s affiliates throughout the region.The intercept provided the U.S. intelligence community with a rare glimpse into how al Qaeda’s leader, Ayman al-Zawahiri, manages a global organization that includes affiliates in Africa, the Middle East, and southwest and southeast Asia. Several news outlets reported Monday on an intercepted communication last week between Zawahiri and Nasser al-Wuhayshi, the leader of al Qaeda’s affiliate based in Yemen.

Republican senators Graham
and McConnell should
win their primaries
Guardian [UK], by Harry J. Enten    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 8/7/2013 5:08:47 AM     Post Reply
Many pundits like to think of the Republican primary voter as one who craves orthodoxy. Any Republican politician who doesn´t toe the conservative line can be eliminated in a primary quicker than a dog will bury a bone. Thus come the obvious primary challenges to senators Mitch McConnell of Kentucky and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina. The numbers suggest, however, that both McConnell and Graham are likely going to beat their primary opponents. Let´s start with the simple statistic: only six incumbent elected senators have been defeated in a primary since 1994. That´s about 2% of all incumbents seek re-election.

Obama Who?

Posted By: StormCnter- 8/7/2013 5:04:01 AM     Post Reply
Critics of the president are convinced that Barack Obama will do lasting damage to the U.S. I doubt it. Obama came to power in the third year of large Democratic congressional majorities. In his first referendum, he lost the House and he may soon lose the Senate; in other words, there followed a somewhat normal reaction against a majority party. Obama’s popularity rating is well below 50%, despite an obsequious media and a brilliantly negative billion-dollar campaign that long ago turned Mitt Romney into a veritable elevator-using, equestrian-marrying, canine-hating monster. In the second term, there is little

WASHINGTON — U.S. officials insisted Tuesday that extraordinary security measures for nearly two dozen diplomatic posts were to thwart an “immediate, specific threat,” a claim questioned by counterterrorism experts, who note that the alert covers an incongruous set of nations from the Middle East to an island off the southern coast of Africa. Analysts don’t dispute the Obama administration’s narrative that it’s gleaned intelligence on a plot involving al Qaida’s most active affiliate, the Yemen-based Arabian Peninsula branch. That would explain why most U.S. posts in the Persian Gulf are on lockdown, including the U.

He thought he was a woman trapped in a man’s body — but it turns out he’s “just another boring straight guy.” ABC News editor Don Ennis strolled into the newsroom in May wearing a little black dress and an auburn wig and announced he was transgender and splitting from his wife. He wanted to be called Dawn. But now he says he suffered from a two-day bout of amnesia that has made him realize he wants to live his life again as Don. “I accused my wife of playing some kind of cruel joke, dressing

The truth about Benghazi, the Associated Press/James Rosen monitoring, the IRS corruption, the NSA octopus, and Fast and Furious is still not exactly known. Almost a year after the attacks on our Benghazi facilities, we are only now learning details of CIA gun-running, military stand-down orders, aliases of those involved who are still hard to locate, massaged talking points, and the weird jailing of Nakoula Basseley Nakoula. We still do not quite know why Eric Holder’s Justice Department went after the Associated Press or Fox News’s James Rosen — given that members of the administration were themselves illegally leaking

WASHINGTON — Former Massachusetts lawmaker Barney Frank revealed that he doesn’t believe in God. During Friday’s appearance on HBO’s “Real Time With Bill Maher,” Frank, who championed the decriminalization of pot while serving in the House of Representatives, admitted to smoking marijuana and being an atheist. “You were in a fairly safe district. You were not one of those congress people who would have to worry about every little thing,” Maher said to Frank. “You could come on this show and sit next to a pot-smoking atheist and it wouldn’t bother you.”

Washington--As hundreds of commuters emerged from Amtrak and commuter trains at Union Station on a recent morning, an armed squad of men and women dressed in bulletproof vests made their way through the crowds. The squad was not with the Washington police department or Amtrak’s police force, but was one of the Transportation Security Administration’s Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response squads — VIPR teams for short — assigned to perform random security sweeps to prevent terrorist attacks at transportation hubs across the United States.(Snip)With little fanfare, the agency best known for airport screenings has vastly expanded its reach

A poll released Friday by Public Policy Polling found that Alaska voters would pick former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton over the state´s former Republican governor, Sarah Palin, if the two women were to face off in the 2016 presidential election. Clinton led with 49 percent in the hypothetical match-up, with Palin at 40 percent, a nine-point gap. As of July 3, Republicans comprised 27 percent of the state´s registered voters and Democrats made up just 14 percent. The last time Alaskans opted for the Democrats´ presidential candidate was in 1964. Clinton trails five other hypothetical GOP candidates –

In a rare diplomatic snub, President Obama is canceling plans to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow next month. The decision reflects both U.S. anger over Russia´s harboring of National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden and growing frustration within the Obama administration over what it sees as Moscow´s stubbornness on other key issues, including missile defense and human rights. Obama will still attend the Group of 20 economic summit in St. Petersburg, Russia, but a top White House official said the president had no plans to hold one-on-one talks with Putin while there.

In an interview for The Guardian Weekend magazine, actor Matt Damon recently weighed in with his thoughts on how President Barack Obama has handled the scandals that have engulfed his administration since the spring. Damon, a vocal supporter of the president since his 2008 campaign for national office, said that Obama is overcompensating for his lack of military background with his tough response to controversies like how the government is responding to National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden. The actor said that Obama is allowing himself to “get bullied” and is acting as though is “manhood”

The Pentagon has placed its elite cadre of special operations teams on full alert to launch preemptive attacks against suspected al Qaeda targets across the globe, according to reports. The American special forces teams have spent the past week waiting for U.S. military and intelligence officials to confirm the whereabouts of the terror cell plotting to attack U.S. diplomatic outposts in the Mideast and North Africa. Unnamed sources told CNN on Monday that the teams were poised to carry out the preemptive strikes, but declined to comment on where the U.S. forces were located or which potential

Former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney jumped into the debate over the GOP’s future Tuesday night, warning congressional Republicans against forcing a government shutdown in their quest to stop President Barack Obama’s signature health care law. Romney addressed more than 200 donors on the shores of Lake Winnipesaukee at a fundraiser for the New Hampshire Republican Party, staged just four miles from the vacation home where he has spent much of the summer with his family. The event was closed to the media, but his office released his prepared remarks.

OPRAH WINFREY: It´s so easy during this time: Trayvon Martin, Trayvon Martin parallel to Emmett Till, let me just tell you. In my mind, same thing. But you can, you can get stuck in that and not allow yourself to move forward and to see how far we´ve come. Really? Martin and Till are the same thing?
