Obama’s Israel Visit: A Parable
PJ Media, by Barry Rubin

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 3/22/2013 4:40:54 PM

After some years, marked by tensions between them, the baron decided to pay an unexpected visit to the village. The people were very excited and turned out to give him a warm welcome. The mayor and the baron spoke of the eternal friendship between the castle and the village. Everyone cheered, especially when the baron promised his help in defending the village from dangers prowling around its borders. The baron urged the village to make peace with those forces, but said he understood if it couldn’t do so and confirmed his support for the village’s right of self-defense.

The U.S. Open Victory
That Changed Golf Forever
Wall Street Journal, by John Paul Newport    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 8/17/2013 1:50:57 PM     Post Reply
There´s no mystery why the U.S. Golf Association chose The Country Club in Brookline, Mass., as the venue for this week´s U.S. Amateur. That´s where Francis Ouimet, an unheralded 20-year-old amateur, won the U.S. Open 100 years ago next month. Somewhat inconveniently, Friday´s amateur action left four players standing, none from the U.S. (two from Australia, one each from England and Canada). (Snip)Class was definitely a theme. Ouimet wasn´t a scion of society, which most Americans rightly associated with golf back in those days. He lived with his parents in a small house across the street from The Country Club

Sordid details spill out in rare court-
martial of a general on sex charges
Washington Post, by Craig Whitlock    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 8/17/2013 1:32:24 PM     Post Reply
FORT BRAGG, N.C. — It was an illicit and volatile love affair that spanned two war zones and four countries. The married general couldn’t stay away from a captain on his staff. She fell hard for her boss and called him “Poppa Panda Sexy Pants.” The three-year entanglement ended disastrously for both, at a time that could not be worse for the Army. All the raw and sordid details are spilling out in an austere military courthouse here, where the Army is girding — for only the third time in half a century — to court-martial one of its generals.

That Egypt has a new strongman is no longer in doubt. Since the Egyptian military ousted the democratically elected President Mohamed Morsi last month following protests across the country, posters of Egypt’s de facto leader, Gen. Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, have become more ubiquitous on Cairo streets than Sphinx souvenirs. The head of the Army stares out from café walls and the windows of government buildings, the red and the gold of his uniform remaining bright, even as the features of his face fade under the relentless sun. “He is the one we can trust,” read some of the posters. Others

Planned Parenthood settles
in Lufkin whistleblower case
KTRE [Lufkin, TX], by Jeff Awtry    Original Article

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - In a lawsuit which alleges workers at a Lufkin Planned Parenthood clinic frauded Medicaid for millions of dollars over a six year-period, the company has agreed to pay $4.3 million to the government as part of a settlement. Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast will also pay a whistleblower $1,247,000. The whistleblower, Karen Reynolds, worked at the Lufkin clinic from 1999 to 2009 and, according to the complaint filed by her attorney Mike Love, was fired for refusing to help cover up the company´s liability for the distribution of pharmaceuticals to a patient by an unauthorized employee. The complaint alleges PPGC billed

Barack Obama is off on yet another vacation – his third this year and fifteenth since taking office. And while Obama vacations, the American people are forced to cut back as he, his family, and his cronies are living like royalty on the taxpayers’ tab. With unemployment at 7.4 percent and the economy failing to create enough jobs to keep up with population growth, most Americans cannot even afford a night out – let alone a luxurious Obama-type vacation in what Politico calls “the playgrounds of the rich and famous.” According to a recent Reuters poll, 81 percent of Americans said

Glamorizing Abortion

Last month a Texas state senator shot to fame filibustering a draconian GOP-sponsored bill that would have severely hindered abortion rights in the state by closing some clinics and outlawing certain procedures. She did it in pink running shoes before changing into Reed Krakoff pumps for a Vogue photo shoot about the filibuster. That senator was of course Wendy Davis, and the description above is how reporters in the liberal media framed Davis’s 11-hour standoff against the Republican majority of the Texas legislature. The majority of Americans, even those who otherwise identify as pro-choice, were uncomfortable with the “rights” that Davis

   

 

  


 
Bill, Hillary, Chelsea foundation
an issue for Clinton 2016
CNN, by James C. Moore    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 8/17/2013 5:33:31 AM     Post Reply
Bill and Hillary Clinton never fail to confound Americans. Their political and public service accomplishments often appear diminished by the stumbles in their private lives, real or imagined. No holder of high office, obviously, is ever judged simply for policy initiatives, and that seems especially true of the Clintons. As Hillary Clinton positions herself for a likely 2016 run for president, the scrutiny she will endure extends, inevitably, to her husband. Journalists and critics on the right will probably have to mine new material, however. What happened in Arkansas and the Oval Office have been more topically tortured than Benghazi. Fortunately, for

Egypt’s One Chance for Democracy

As Egypt began to implode, yet again, John Kerry inadvertently stumbled into something a lot closer to the truth than the delusional “Arab Spring” narrative that has guided Obama-administration policy. The secretary of state, tied in knots by congressional foolishness that mandates terminating U.S. aid when a foreign government is ousted by a coup d’état, rationalized that, quite contrary to a coup, the Egyptian military’s ejection of President Mohamed Morsi was an exercise in “restoring democracy.” None of this was quite right, although that is to be expected. After all, the C-word on Kerry’s mind was not “coherence”; he was struggling

A year and a half ago, a news story exploded out of Sanford, Fla. George Zimmerman, an armed, 28-year-old man of mixed white and Hispanic ancestry, followed and killed Trayvon Martin, an unarmed 17-year-old African American. The tragic episode was touched off because Zimmerman, out on neighborhood watch patrol, found Martin to be suspicious as he walked home from a store wearing a sweat shirt with a hood. As the days and months unfolded and more details emerged, the national media ran with the story, and along the way something became quite apparent to me. As captivating as this story was,

An apocalyptic home on range

After the apocalypse, this is where Scientologists will land their spaceship as they return home to Earth. It’s called Trementina base, in a remote stretch of the New Mexico desert. Its main building is described as an “alien space cathedral” that sits on the side of a mountain near secret tunnels and underground vaults that guard the written works of Scientology’s founder. Photos taken by a helicopter on a recent flyover revealed one of the closest public looks at the compound since it was built in the 1980s by a Church of Scientology branch, the Church of Technology.

Keith Olbermann: Al Gore Is a “Clod”

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter on his return to ESPN and his rocky detour into political commentary, Keith Olbermann didn’t mince any words when it came to describing Al Gore, his former boss at Current TV: When you’re working for somebody whom you admired politically, who turns out to be a clod, the scales fall from your eyes. Sorry. Al underdelivered. I mean that’s just simply the case. I don’t want to dwell on it, but it’s true. Olbermann didn’t exactly set the world on fire in the ratings department at Current, but that’s another story.

It isn´t easy getting people to buy something they neither understand nor particularly want to own. An example being Obamacare. But the Department of Health and Human Services has a solution. First, find some money – there is some, for instance, earmarked for prevention that is just lying around and not, at present preventing much of anything. Then, spend the money to sell the program and employ "navigators" to assist people who find it complex bordering on incomprehensible. As Sam Baker of the Hill reports: (HHS) announced $67 million in funding for “navigators,” which are people and community groups who will help people

The Washington Examiner is reporting that Obama "apparently" did not know about the extent of the violence in Egypt until National Security Adviser Susan Rice informed him of it on August 15. CNN´s Jack Tapper reported that the violence that has filled world news outlets for two days and has resulted in hundreds of deaths is just now reaching the president via the individual who infamously blamed Benghazi on a YouTube video. On August 15 Tapper wrote: This morning, the president had a phone call, a principals meeting with Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel, Secretary of State John Kerry, and

Former Obama "body man" Reggie Love spoke with interviewer Jim Newton during a lunch at UCLA´s Luskin School of Public Affairs on July 18, 2013. Highlights of this interview were briefly posted on YouTube Wednesday (August 13) before being removed because the audio embarrassingly noted that Love and Obama played 15 hands of spades during the bulk of the raid on the bin Laden compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan. Love also commented on the release of Obama´s long-form "birth certificate," as follows:

Oprah Winfrey and her co-star in Lee Daniels’ The Butler Forest Whitaker appeared on Anderson Cooper 360 Thursday night to promote their film. During the interview, Anderson Cooper asked Winfrey to relate the historical themes of the movie to the modern day struggles for African-Americans, including the Trayvon Martin case. Winfrey said she “loves” the film in light of the discussion on race, because it “brings context” to the conversation. She described how the film begins with a lynching scene and ends with walking into President Obama’s office, showing how much has “happened in the span of one man’s lifetime

The former CIA contractor, who is currently in Russia with temporary asylum, handed over an internal audit and other top-secret documents detailing the illegal behaviour. Most of the infractions involved unauthorised surveillance of Americans or foreign intelligence targets in the United States, both of which are restricted by law and executive order, The Washington Post said. They ranged from significant violations of law to typographical errors that resulted in unintended interception of US emails and telephone calls, it said. The Post said the documents it obtained were part of a trove of materials provided to the paper by Mr Snowden

Sandra Fluke, a former "reproductive justice" advocate at Georgetown Law School, has a new mission: getting more women to run for elective office. In a brief interview on MSNBC Friday morning, Fluke was asked if Republicans are remiss in not asking more women to run for office. "I think there are a variety of concerns about how we get women into office," she responded. "It´s not only about asking women, which is something we need to do -- but also about making sure that the party leadership and those in elected office are looking for women to succeed them." Fluke,

Americans continue to harken to the call of the bodacious, idyllic, post-war, big-finned, fabulous ‘50s. Given a choice of any decade in the century, the public would most want to live in the 1950s, this according to a new YouGov/Economist poll. The 1980s comes in second - with some interesting partisan divides between Republicans and Democrats over the decades. And the numbers: 18 percent of Americans would live in the 1950s if they could go back in time; 20 percent of Republicans and 14 percent of Democrats agree. 15 percent of Americans overall would chose to live in the 1960s;

Mideast: Christians in Egypt are again the target of Islamist Muslim Brotherhood supporters using the new violence as a cover for ongoing persecution. If Christians were burning mosques, the world would be outraged.Amid the raging violence in Egypt, a less-publicized war is being waged against Egypt´s long-persecuted Coptic Christians, this time using the excuse that they were somehow involved in the military´s ouster of the Muslim Brotherhood´s Mohammed Morsi from power. Coptic Christians comprise up to 10% of Egypt´s 84 million people.Ishaq Ibrahim from the Egyptian Initiative for Personal Rights

Barbara Bush, 31, called Clinton “unbelievably accomplished” in an upcoming interview with People magazine, saying she wants to see the former first lady mount a campaign. The former Republican president’s daughter said that her respect for Clinton wouldn’t necessarily mean she would vote for the former secretary of state, however.
