Obama’s Mix of Reality and Fantasy
Commentary Magazine, by Jonathan S. Tobin

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 3/21/2013 2:36:19 PM

President Obama continued his charm offensive with the people of Israel with his speech to an audience of students in Jerusalem that reaffirmed his support for Zionism and Israel’s “unbreakable” alliance with the United States. But however far he may have gone toward reassuring Israelis of his concern for their security during this trip, many of the headlines today will be devoted to the part of his address that attempted to prod the Jewish state to recommit to the peace process. The speech demonstrated that, despite the new warmth between Obama and Prime Minister Netanyahu, there is still considerable distance

NJ Man Faces Fine For
Disrupting Airport Satellite
Associated Press, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 8/9/2013 5:50:39 PM     Post Reply
NEWARK, N.J. — A New Jersey man faces tens of thousands of dollars in fines after regulators say he interfered with a satellite system at one of the nation´s busiest airports while masking his whereabouts from his employer. The Federal Communications Commission said Gary Bojczak admitted he installed a jamming device in his company-owned pickup to thwart his employer´s GPS. Bojczak surrendered the jamming device after his vehicle was stopped at Newark Liberty International Airport in August 2012. The FCC said the jamming device interfered with a new system that enhanced navigation signals that used GPS data to aid aircraft approaching,

Big Tex donations reach

DALLAS, Texas -- The biggest man in Texas, who burned last October in a fire at the State Fair of Texas, will soon stand tall again thanks to donors. The State Fair of Texas tells WFAA-TV they have received more than $95,000 in contributions to the Big Tex reconstruction fund. The new Big Tex will cost $500,000, a beautification project surrounding the tall structure is estimated to cost an additional $6,000. State fair officials say they will receive $155,000 in insurance from the fire in addition to public funds. In addition to the donations, the fair says they will have six founding sponsors.

Fox poll shows “phony scandal”
line playing worse that you’d think
Hot Air, by Ed Morrissey    Original Article

After an avalanche of scandals hit the White House this spring, the Obama administration adopted the public-relations strategy of calling IRS political targeting, NSA domestic snooping, and the deaths of four Americans in an utterly predictable terrorist attack on a diplomatic facility “phony scandals.” How’s that working? According to a new Fox poll, even worse than you’d think. The best response comes on the IRS story, where a whopping 33% agree that there’s nothing to worry about … but 59% disagree: Benghazi. Snooping on reporters. The IRS and NSA. The White House dismisses them as phony

WASHINGTON- President Obama made his first extensive public comments this week on two pressing national security matters – the temporary closing of 19 embassies and rising tensions with Russian President Vladimir Putin – in an unlikely forum, "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno."Mr. Obama is no stranger to late night television. Since his first run for president in 2008, he has visited a variety of venues– including daytime programs like "The View" and "The Ellen Degeneres Show" – to shape his personal political brand as accessible, fun, and hip, while also using these shows to reach out

Students go back to school
with ‘Trayvon Martin dialogues’

Middle and high school students in San Diego, California will be encouraged to vent their frustration that the world lacks justice when they return to school and participate in the “Trayvon Martin dialogues” this fall. The board of San Diego Unified Schools unanimously approved a proposal recently to establish classroom forums to discuss the death of Trayvon Martin, a black teenager who was shot during an altercation with a Hispanic man, George Zimmerman, in Florida last year. A jury recently acquitted Zimmerman, who claimed that Martin struck first and shot him in self-defense.

Detroit Lost a $1 Million
Check in a Desk Drawer
Atlantic, by Philip Bump    Original Article

The City of Detroit misplaced a million-dollar check sent to it by a school district. Which prompts two questions. How do you lose a million-dollar check? And: Why is a city in the year 2013 still using paper checks? The first question is actually the easier one to answer. The story was reported by Bloomberg, which describes the situation. In late February, cash-strapped Detroit received a $1 million check from the local school system that wasn’t deposited. The routine payment wound up in a city hall desk drawer, where it was found a month later. First of all,

Seoul Long

Sixty years ago the Korean War ended. No peace treaty was ever signed and over the years North Korea publicly repudiated the armistice at least ten times. Thus, the parties technically are still at war, though no one wants to restart a conflict in which everyone would lose. Pyongyang is a great international mystery. What makes the system of monarchical communism tick? How are decisions made? What are the chances for change? But there is a bigger question much harder to answer. Why is the U.S. still involved on the peninsula, threatening and threatened by the North?

Let’s define that Liberal Privilege. In four words? “We make the rules.” Is Rush Limbaugh in trouble? Is the Tea Party extremist? Was Ronald Reagan dumb, the Soviet Union eternal, did Bush lie, are conservatives racists? Is Sarah Palin stupid, Hillary Clinton brilliant, global warming a scientific fact, and abortion overwhelmingly popular? The answers? Yes, yes, yes, yes, of course, it’s obvious, absolutely, and everybody knows it without question.

Is Dick Durbin the
Dumbest Democrat?
Power Line, by John Hinderaker    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 8/9/2013 6:00:03 AM     Post Reply
The competition is intense, but Durbin is definitely a contender. Here is the latest evidence: In preparation for a previously announced hearing on controversial “stand your ground” laws announced after the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, Sen. Richard J. Durbin, D-Ill., sent letters to more than 300 possible corporate backers of the American Legislative Exchange Council, requesting their position on such policies in states across the country. This is Durbin’s press release announcing the “stand your ground” hearing in his Senate Judiciary subcommittee: Around 30 states currently have some form

At the best of times it is hazardous for the mental equilibrium of a rational person randomly to turn on the television set, and it is probably especially so in summer. Last week, in a cavalierly daredevil moment, I did so, and was almost reduced to the incommunicable state of Zechariah in the Temple as a result. First, I unluckily happened upon what purported to be a serious discussion of the supposed difference in public responses to men’s and women’s weeping. The party of vintage, quaveringly emotional feminism, twitching and squirming as they emitted the unimaginable frustrations

No end in sight to

One day after the Yemeni authorities took credit for disrupting a terrorist plot against oil and gas lines there, the White House continued to rigorously defend the administration´s decision to keep a record numbers of embassies around the world shuttered with no end in sight to the closures. U.S. officials are remaining on high alert and will continue to keep 19 diplomatic facilities in the Middle East, Northern Africa and Central Asia shuttered as intelligence agencies evaluate the threat level. "I think there will be an assessment, and when there´s an assessment that this current threat is not what it was,

Ideology Matters: Time to Call
the Fort Hood Attack Terrorism
National Review Online, by Benjamin Weinthal    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 8/9/2013 5:20:19 AM     Post Reply
Staff Sergeant Alonzo Lunsford told prosecutors this week that Major Nidal Hasan shouted “Allahu Akbar” before he opened fire on military personnel at the Fort Hood base in 2009. Hasan’s Islamism-animated killing spree caused the deaths of 13 people and one unborn child, and wounded 32 other individuals. In a remarkable and heartbreaking Washington Post opinion piece today, Shawn Manning, who barely survived Hasan’s rampage, urged the U.S. Army to designate the murderous act as terrorism. Sadly, the U.S. Army and the Pentagon steadfastly insist on the labeling the jihadi killing a non-ideological form of “workplace violence.” Manning described Hasan’s horrific violence:

The owner of a shop in Zurich where US talk show host Oprah Winfrey says she encountered racism has called the incident a "misunderstanding". Winfrey, one of the world´s richest women, claimed an assistant refused to serve her in an upmarket handbag shop. She was apparently told one of the bags on display was "too expensive" for her. Shop owner Trudie Gotz told the BBC that Winfrey was "absolutely allowed" to look at the $35,000 (£22,500) bag, which was kept behind a screen.

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie holds a narrow lead among Republicans for the party’s 2016 presidential nomination, but even more GOP voters say he’s the candidate they least want to see nominated. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that Christie earns 21% support when Republican voters are asked whom they would vote for if the party’s primary in their state were held today. Florida Senator Marco Rubio runs a close second with 18% of the GOP vote, followed by former Florida Governor Jeb Bush at 16% and Kentucky Senator Rand Paul with 15% of the vote.

Barack Obama delivered one gaffe after another in his August 6 interview with Jay Leno, but the networks that usually mock every mistake or slip of the tongue made by Republicans ignored the President´s verbal mishaps. ABC´s Good Morning America, CBS´s This Morning and NBC´s Today show, on Wednesday morning, all bypassed the chance to criticize Obama for: downplaying the threat of terrorism; falsely claiming Vladimir Putin once ran the KGB; placing the Atlantic coast cities of Savannah, Charleston and Jacksonville on the Gulf of Mexico; confusing the Winter Olympics with the Summer Olympics.

Ending a war is a good thing. Killing civilians a bad thing. Deliberately targeting civilians is murder, and is never morally licit, even in pursuit of a good thing such as ending a war. The tens of thousands of Japanese non-combatants we killed 68 years ago this week with two nuclear bombs were not “collateral damage” of military strikes. They were the intended targets. We hoped that mass murder would bring the Japanese emperor to surrender. It worked, and American and Japanese soldiers’ lives were probably saved by it —

Last month we learned that Megyn Kelly was leaving her daytime anchor gig to take over a Fox News primetime slot. According to an “exclusive” Drudge Report flash this afternoon, that time slot will be 9 p.m. ET. “Superstar newswoman Megyn Kelly has landed the 9 PM slot, top sources reveal,” the Drudge Report wrote. “The shock announcement is set for later this month.” Fox’s 9 p.m. hour is currently helmed by Sean Hannity, leading to speculation over whether he could be out of a primetime gig. There are many possible outcomes from this lineup change,

National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden extended his 15 minutes of fame Wednesday, as headlines tied his saga to President Barack Obama’s decision to cancel a planned summit meeting in Moscow next month with Russian President Vladimir Putin. But analysts said the talk of Snowden’s role in the cancellation obscured a more basic reality: The U.S.-Russia relationship is now so frosty that it didn’t appear the two presidents would actually accomplish enough to merit such a high-profile meeting. After four years, the much-vaunted reset in U.S.-Russian relations has devolved into a chilly standoff over issues like the Kremlin’s support for Syria

Nanny State: If any question remained about the Obama White House´s appetite for running everyone´s life from Washington, it should be settled now. This administration even wants to dictate neighborhood makeup. Like your neighborhood? Don´t get used to it. The Obama Department of Housing and Urban Development might decide it wants to dictate changes. HUD is, according to Fox News, considering "a new rule that would allow the feds to track diversity in America´s neighborhoods and then push policies to change those it deems discriminatory."

“IQ is a metric of such dubiousness that almost no serious educational researcher uses it anymore,” the Guardian’s Ana Marie Cox wrote back in May. It was a breathtakingly ignorant statement. Psychologist Jelte Wicherts noted in response that a search for “IQ test” in Google’s academic database yielded more than 10,000 hits — just for the year 2013. (Snip) There is a large discrepancy between what educated laypeople believe about cognitive science and what experts actually know. Journalists are steeped in the lay wisdom, so they are repeatedly surprised when someone forthrightly discusses the real science of mental ability.
