Sandstorm grounds Obama´s helicopter
New York Post, by Geoff Earle

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 3/22/2013 9:08:09 AM

JERUSALEM – First “the Beast” had a breakdown, and now a wicked sandstorm has grounded President Obama’s helicopter. It was a warm, clear morning when Obama toured Mt. Hertzl and visited Yad Vashem, Israel’s museum to the Holocaust. But biting winds arrived ahead of schedule here, making it unsafe for Obama to fly by helicopter to Palestinian-controlled Bethlehem, about a 30 minute drive from Jerusalem. Helicopter is the mode of transport Obama used the last time he went into Palestinian-controlled territory, a visit to Ramallah on Thursday. Consequently, Obama’s motorcade –

This is on Drudge-´Most Palestinians hate Obama´;
The two presidential choppers landed in Ramallah twenty minutes ahead of schedule. The force of their landing blew plumes of dust and litter over thin lines of ceremonial guards and bagpipers saluting the arrival.

God is good.

Locusts, fuel that won´t start the beast, and now sandstorms. If Red Tide comes next, I´d think about separating myself from the Presidential party.

Going to the Church of the Nativity to poke his finger in Israel´s eye.

Arabs are no longer permitted to go to the Church. The pali´s stormed the church, shot at Israeli´s from the windows, desecrated and destroyed the inside.

They stayed holed up for weeks, if not longer as I recall.

What a shock, Israel keeps the arabs away now.

How sad........NOT

Our Lord is not happy with Junior. For the life of me can´t seem to get out of my mind the image of Junior seeming to hang on the Cross. You remember that image being depicted last year? Was it Time who was the first to print it? Perhaps not, and it was only an artist.

The corpseman in charge of fueling this was convinced by Obama that the helicopter didn´t need fossil fuel as the windmill on top provided all the power they would need.

My car crash TV appearance: trust me, it´s

When things go wrong live on air, they call it “car crash TV”, which is a pretty good description of how it feels to those in the driving seat. Terrifying, yet slow-moving enough for you to contemplate the tragic irony just before hitting the lamppost. This week I appeared on a BBC3 show called Free Speech, a show made “for young people by young people” and presented by a young person in trainers. I surveyed the list of panellists to see who was on to play the crazy Right-winger – and realised, by deduction, that it was me. My fellow

Rupert Murdoch has elevated son Lachlan to the top of his multi-billion dollar family media empire after a seven-year break, appointing him non-executive co-chairman of both News Corp and 21st Century Fox Inc. The media mogul also gave his younger son James a bigger role as co-chief operating officer at 21st Century Fox, two years after he resigned as chairman of British broadcaster BSkyB following a parliamentary investigation into phone hacking. Lachlan Murdoch, who has been serving as a director at News Corp and 21st Century Fox, will work closely with senior management to develop global strategies and guide the

TLAJOMULCO, Mexico — The United States calls Hugo Cuéllar Hurtado a longtime trafficker of the cocaine coming from South America, working with one of the men believed to command Mexico’s biggest drug cartel now that its leader, Joaquín Guzmán Loera, has been captured. But while Mr. Guzmán — known as El Chapo, or Shorty — spent 13 years on the run, sometimes even escaping through underground tunnels dug under bathrooms, Mr. Cuéllar walks freely around Guadalajara, attending luncheons and chatting up diplomats. He says he even won a government grant for an ostrich farm he runs here. “Let them come and investigate

How to thwart a gunman at 29,000 feet,

With the world’s attention focused on Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, a retired El Al pilot, a veteran of five armed hijacking attempts and plots, including one movie-worthy standoff at 29,000 feet, splashed some local brandy into his afternoon tea. “When you don’t know, you just don’t know,” Uri Bar-Lev said of the fate of the airliner, speaking two weeks after it dropped off the radar. Then, while he was folding the Hebrew paper, which was splayed open to the MH370 story of the day, came an endearingly familiar routine, the ritual dance performed by so many Israelis of Bar-Lev’s 1948

Staten Islanders have been scared silly by images of a clown carrying balloons and stalking neighborhoods after dark that have started to appeared on social media. The terrifying clown, who resembles the character Pennywise from Stephen King’s horror novel “It,” made headlines in the local paper and even caused local politicians like Congressman Michael Grimm and Borough President James Oddo to get involved. “That’s a clown question, bro,” tweeted Oddo when asked by reporters about the clown. It was a reference to a famous quote by baseball player Bryce Harper. But The Post has learned that the Staten Island residents

Ezra Klein, Bill Donohue, and Alec Baldwin. Three very different men, who are in fact raising a very important question. Is this still America? Recent stories involving all three men (and the Klein story has been discussed here by Robert Stacy McCain) are classics of the old Communist thought-reform method of operation. Let’s begin with Ezra Klein, the one-time Washington Post whiz kid turned digital-media mogul. Klein, you see, hired one Brandon Ambrosino to work for his new Internet site Vox. Mr. Ambrosino is a gay man who is not reluctant to criticize gay elites (read: liberals who happen to be

Helmet camera shows skydiver´s remarkable
jump from World Trade Center
New York Daily News, by Rocco Parascandola , Shayna Jacobs ,*    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 3/25/2014 8:00:41 AM     Post Reply
It’s 1 World Trade Center like it’s never been seen before — through a helmet camera worn by one of three skydivers who jumped from the top of the skyscraper in September. The footage, posted to YouTube, is breathtaking — and maybe even a little too much to handle if one is afraid of heights. The skydiver, former WTC ironworker James Brady, first waits for one of his high-flying companions to jump. Then he too plummets toward the street, and the camera provides a remarkable perspective of the 1,776-foot-tall tower and the city lights. The daredevil then pulls the cord

Billionaire mogul Sheldon Adelson looks

Casino magnate Sheldon Adelson, who along with his wife plowed more than $92 million into efforts to help mostly losing candidates in the 2012 elections, is undertaking a new strategy for 2016 — to tap his fortune on behalf of a more mainstream Republican with a clear shot to win the White House, according to people familiar with his thinking. In 2012, Sheldon and Miriam Adelson spent so much of their money on long-shot candidate Newt Gingrich that they helped extend an ugly intra-party fight that left the eventual nominee, Mitt Romney, severely bruised by the time he faced President Obama

GOP finds unwinding Obamacare
vexing now that it´s taken root
Washington Examiner, by Byron York    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 3/25/2014 7:53:23 AM     Post Reply
Republicans are still determined to repeal Obamacare, even though they have famously failed to unite behind an alternative. Now, it is dawning on some in the GOP that even if they succeed in repealing the Affordable Care Act, and even if they pass an alternative, they will still have to come up with a plan to get from here to there. Right now, they don´t have one. What is different about Republican calls for repeal today -- as opposed to calls for repeal from 2010 to the end of 2013 -- is that Obamacare is now in place. It exists. Exchanges

Harry Reid Blames Republicans

If Harry Reid isn’t the most despicable politician ever he’s right up there in the top five. He actually blamed Republicans for Russia invading Ukraine and annexing Crimea. He says it’s their fault because they held up a bill providing aid to Ukraine, but failed to mention that the bill they blocked would have given Russia more control over the International Monetary Fund. He also failed to mention that even if his bill passed in the Senate the House wouldn’t have been able to vote on it before Russia took action, so he’s basically just full of crap, as usual.Outlining

When I was the age my kids are now, television networks offered three, barely distinguishable choices. Including Internet video, my kids´ options are almost infinite. I walked to a library.

High court with vocally devout justices set to

There’s something that makes the current Supreme Court different from some of its recent predecessors. The justices got religion. Or at least they seem more open about their faith, appearing before devout audiences and talking more about how religion shaped their lives or guides them now. As the court this week weighs religious conviction vs. legal obligation in the latest challenge to the Affordable Care Act, those who study the court say the change is hard to quantify but easy to notice. Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. and Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr. are devout Catholics who faced questions during their

Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld has said that ´a trained ape´ could do a better job managing American interests in Afghanistan than President Obama. The retired Republican made the insult while doing a phone-in interview for Greta Van Susteren´s Fox News show on Tuesday. He argued that the President made a serious error by failing to negotiate a status forces agreement with Afghan President Hamid Karzai. Gawker points out that such an agreement would effectively commit the United States to having a certain number of troops in the country for a number of years beyond the already-agreed-upon plan which

A pair of potentially catastrophic cases will be argued before the Supreme Court on Tuesday. These cases are brought by privately held, for-profit corporations that are arguing their religious convictions should preclude them from offering employees the health insurance required by law. Specifically, these private employers don’t want to allow their employees’ insurance to cover some forms of birth control because, contrary to medicaland scientific evidence, they believe some birth control causes abortions. Corporations are not people. Corporations cannot have religious views. If religious rights are extended to corporations, it puts us on a slippery slope where any private company

Former President Jimmy Carter is back in the news this week publicizing a new book about women’s rights.

Media Matters, the website of choice for Fox News haters everywhere, attacked the cable news network on Monday for using the term “homosexual” in its programming — advancing the peculiar argument that the scientific term has a “pejorative connotation.” The online “media watchdog” contends that calling gay people “homosexual” is “a practice that’s quickly falling out of favor with major news outlets due the term’s often pejorative connotation and frequent use by opponents of LGBT equality.” Fox News, they chide, “has yet to update its language when referring to gay and lesbian people.” Buttressing their argument?

Most Supreme Court watchers are fixated these days on Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby—the important challenge to the Affordable Care Act’s contraception mandate scheduled for argument Tuesday. And why wouldn’t they be? With its potent mix of religion, sex, Obamacare, and prayerful corporations, it’s the blockbuster case of the term. It is also a crucial test of Chief Justice John Roberts’s leadership on the Supreme Court. Just two years ago, Roberts cast the deciding vote to largely uphold the Affordable Care Act. While the country remains divided over whether he acted like a traitor or a statesman, all would have to agree

Hunter Walker, Business Insider’s politics editor, published the announcement on Monday, after teasing the news on Twitter by announcing that “something wonderful is about to happen.” The folks at Business Insider are clearly aware of the built-in entertainment value of hiring the scandalized politician, who is best known for sending an explicit photo of himself to an online mistress on Twitter -- and initially denying the photo was his.
