Debt Soared $5.5 Trillion
Since Last Senate Budget

Investor´s Business Daily, by John Merline

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 3/11/2013 7:55:38 PM

If you want a sense of just how massive the nation´s debt problem is, consider this: The U.S. added $226 billion in new debt in just the 35 days since President Obama missed the legal deadline to submit his budget. That´s more than the government will spend this year on education, homeland security, law enforcement, housing aid, energy and the environment, combined. A 1921 law requires the president to submit his budget plan to Congress on the first Monday in February, but Obama so far hasn´t produced one, and the White House says it won´t release its plan to get

I also blame the cowardly yellow press in this country. It is their job to hold the givernment accountable. Nearly 5 years without a budget, yet the press has not whispered a word about the economically destructive fallout as a result of Demonrat refusal to provide a budget.

Obama On Executive Actions: ‘I’ve

CBS News, by Staff    Original Article

WASHINGTON — Calling for “all hands on deck” to assist the economy, President Barack Obama is urging his Cabinet to identify ways to keep his administration relevant to people struggling in the up-and-down recovery. 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

Hillary Clinton´s Iowa problem

Des Moines, Iowa -- In Iowa, the state that pulled the first block out of her wobbly Jenga-game of a presidential campaign six years ago, Hillary Clinton enjoys stratospheric approval ratings, well-heeled outside groups toiling on her behalf, and important political connections that date back decades. From a distance, she appears invincible once again, far outpacing her rivals in the polls and primed to redeem herself in the caucus state that has never been especially friendly to the Clintons, or to female candidates. Iowa has not elected a female governor, senator or member of Congress. In 2016, Clinton could finally put those

Iran´s Rouhani: ´World Powers

Iranian president Hassan Rouhani is taking to Twitter to gloat about the nuclear deal his country struck with the U.S. and other Western countries. "Our relationship w/ the world is based on Iranian nation´s interests. In #Geneva agreement world powers surrendered to Iranian nation´s will," Rouhani tweeted about an hour ago. In a recent interview, Iran´s chief negotiator for the nuclear deal also claimed victory. “No facility will be closed; enrichment will continue, and qualitative and nuclear research will be expanded,” the chief nuclear negotiator said. “All research into a new generation of centrifuges will continue.”

GOP Myths About

The pundit class and the GOP establishment currently are engaged in massive "concern trolling" over the possibility that Republican voters will elect conservatives in party primaries. Karl Rove, the US Chamber of Commerce and other special interests have vowed to spend whatever it takes to prevent citizens from nominating the "wrong" candidates. Setting aside the conceit that these interests know better than voters who should represent them, are these concerns even valid? The establishment´s argument is based on three things: 1) Rep. Todd Akin (MO), 2) Sharron Angle (NV), and 3) Christine O´Donnell (DE). Granted, these campaigns were train wrecks, but

It is with deep melancholy that one reads about the ongoing suffering of Cubans under communism. January 1, 2014 marked the 55th anniversary of Cuba´s communist revolution. In fact, Cuba is "the only full-blown dictatorship in the Western hemisphere" and "no other country in Latin America is ruled by a regime that ´represses virtually all forms of political dissent.´" In Freedom House´s annual index of political and civil liberties worldwide, Cuba is "consistently rated ´Not Free.´" The "Future of Freedom in Cuba" was a March 2013 Cato Institute event that highlighted the continuing repression in Cuba.

Washington Post pundit Dan Balz has a problem: Political polarization has ushered in a new era in state government, where single-party control of the levers of power has produced competing Americas. Republican states have pursued economic and fiscal strategies built around lower taxes, deeper spending cuts and less regulation.... They have clashed with labor unions.... moved to restrict abortion rights or to enact voter-identification laws.... Yes, yes, all true. Yet, at the same time, as Balz also notes: Blue states have also been forced to cut spending, given the budgetary pressures caused by the recession. But... a number of them also have raised taxes....

Obama´s Internal Devaluation
Causes Income Inequality
American Thinker, by Chriss Street    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 1/14/2014 6:07:16 AM     Post Reply
The Obama Administration´s $5.8 trillion of big government deficit spending has caused the United States to suffer an "internal devaluation," as American worker wages after inflation were forced down in each of the last five years. American competitiveness increased by over 10% due to worker sacrifices, but all the benefits flowed directly to corporate officers and financial speculators. When the president recently lamented, "The combined trends of increased inequality and decreasing mobility pose a fundamental threat to the American dream," he could count on the unwavering support from Warren Buffett, who was the last year´s biggest dollar gainer with a

World economic freedom has reached record levels, according to the 2014 Index of Economic Freedom, released Tuesday by the Heritage Foundation and The Wall Street Journal. But after seven straight years of decline, the U.S. has dropped out of the top 10 most economically free countries. For 20 years, the index has measured a nation´s commitment to free enterprise on a scale of 0 to 100 by evaluating 10 categories, including fiscal soundness, government size and property rights. These commitments have powerful effects: Countries achieving higher levels of economic freedom consistently and measurably outperform others in economic growth, long-term prosperity and

On Jan. 28, America will hear the president deliver his annual State of the Union address to Congress. The president will, no doubt, call for a larger role of government in our daily lives. More government is the last thing Americans need. The late Sen. Eugene McCarthy, D-Minn., observed, "The only thing that saves us from the bureaucracy is inefficiency. An efficient bureaucracy is the greatest threat to liberty." He said this in 1979 when the Code of Federal Regulations contained about 30,000 rules. Today, the federal government has more than 180,000 rules. Alexis de Tocqueville warned that the threat to American democracy

States´ Rights: As Republicans watch from the sidelines, pinning their hopes on 2016, the president and his radical troops are storming local school and zoning boards in an unprecedented federal invasion. Last week, after the attorney general and education secretary jointly announced an alarming new witch hunt against local school officials over allegedly racist disciplinary policies, we watched with keen interest Republican reaction. Disappointingly, barely a whimper was registered from the opposition party. Even Fox News punted on the administration´s dangerous anti-discipline crusade, preoccupied as they were handicapping a speculative race, two years away, between Hillary Clinton and Chris Christie. Yet we can´t

This Is What Government-Run
Health Care Looks Like
Investor´s Business Daily, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 1/13/2014 7:05:23 PM     Post Reply
Socialized Medicine: More than two-thirds of the public don´t think the government can be trusted to run the nation´s health care system successfully. ObamaCare is proving these skeptics right. The public might not agree on much these days, but one thing it overwhelmingly believes is that government is ill-equipped to manage one-sixth of the economy — 67% said so in the January IBD/TIPP poll. This distrust has only gotten worse as the ObamaCare debacle unfolded, climbing 4 points in one month. Even Democrats — at 44%, up from 34% the month before — are increasingly skeptical. Little wonder, since every day ObamaCare provides

The late Andrew Breitbart called Evan Sayet’s original Heritage Foundation talk on the Unified Field Theory of Liberalism "one of the five most important conservative speeches ever given.” That is hearty praise for someone most people consider a comedian and a comedy writer. On Sunday, we learned that Sayet is above and beyond that label; he is an astute conservative commentator and a culture warrior for the “right." Sayet joined Breitbart News Executive Chairman and host Stephen K. Bannon on Breitbart News Sunday on Sirius XM Patriot channel 125. Bannon introduced Sayet as one of the most “courageous conservatives” who was with

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. But criminal

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.

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.

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

Monday For many years now, I have endured a mild skin disorder, rarely fatal. I usually am monitored by a fine doctor in Rancho Mirage. 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.

The Maricopa County Republican Party in Arizona formally censured Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) Saturday evening by an overwhelming 1150-351 vote, Breitbart News has learned. 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.

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

LOS ANGELES — About 20 million DirecTV customers nationwide lost The Weather Channel because of a dispute over fees between the channel and the satellite service. The two companies pointed fingers at each other late Monday as a midnight EST deadline for renegotiation of carriage fees paid by DirecTV to The Weather Channel passed without an agreement. In a statement, David Kenny, CEO of the channel´s parent company, The Weather Co., said it offered DirecTV the best rate for its programming. Kenny accused the satellite provider of putting profits ahead of public safety. "We are not looking for a large fee increase," Kenny

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.

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
