Division among Republicans
on Gang of Eight?

Washington Examiner, by Byron York

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 4/8/2013 5:37:13 AM

As the bipartisan Gang of Eight works to complete a comprehensive immigration reform bill, there has been a growing consensus among Senate Republicans that the bill — so far seen by no one outside the Gang — should be the subject of multiple hearings and extended consideration inside the Senate Judiciary Committee. But on Sunday there were signs that consensus does not extend to the Republicans inside the Gang. Appearing on CBS, longtime immigration reform advocate and Gang member Sen. John McCain suggested the immigration issue is so familiar to lawmakers that multiple hearings will not be necessary.

Whatever the issue, McCain and Graham always seem to be part of the gang.

With people like John McCaine and Lindsay Graham as Republican components of the gang of eight we have real reason to worry!

Time to end Donald Trump’s
gubernatorial sideshow
New York Post, by Kieran Lalor    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 2/19/2014 5:03:38 AM     Post Reply
Donald Trump is wasting our time. He won’t wind up running for governor because he’d lose, and by an embarrassingly wide margin. Trump knows that; it’s what the polls say and he isn’t delusional — he’s a showman playing a character. He’s looking for some headlines because that’s his MO. But New York doesn’t have time for Trump’s circus act. The state’s economy is in horrible shape. His grandstanding must take a back seat. Trump has already gotten the pundits to talk about him. He’s had his ego stroked by politicos telling him, “Yes Mr. Trump, you’d make a great governor.” He

Last Friday, in what would be a humiliating episode if it were capable of embarrassment, the Associated Press, aka the Administration’s Press, acted as if a tweet from “@BarackObama” about the TV program House of Cards represented an “endorsement” of the program by President Barack Obama himself. It even described the tweet as his “latest playful executive order,” and reported that a cast member somehow “double-checked the authenticity of the tweet before celebrating.” The folks at AP are so smitten with Dear Leader that they either weren’t aware or didn’t care that the Twitter account involved is from Organizing for America,

   

 

  


 
Uproar over ObamaCare’s menu rules
The Hill [DC], by Ben Goad    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 2/19/2014 4:56:23 AM     Post Reply
A bipartisan group of lawmakers is asking the Obama administration to scale back draft regulations under ObamaCare that would force restaurants to post nutritional information on their menus.?? The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is close to finalizing a rule requiring calorie labels on vending machines and at restaurants and “similar retail food establishments.” Proposed in 2011, the regulations stem from the Affordable Care Act and are designed to combat obesity by helping consumers make healthier choices. But the group of 24 lawmakers said the draft regulations, which apply to restaurants with 20 or more locations, go beyond Congress’ intent

This Olympics, I’ve been struck by how Balkanized the Winter Games seem. With the inclusion of snowboarding and freestyle skiing in their various high-flying forms, the games have a modern extreme-sports edge that wasn’t present when I was a kid. The traditional Alpine sports (skiing, speedskating) look more and more classical. And in between these twin poles, with the X-Games on one end and the Olympics’ storied past at the other, figure skating appears to be stuck in 1976, a world of disco-era sequins and pastels. Of course, like most Americans, I still adore watching the figure skating—like gymnasts, skaters must

Snake handlers give some

There’s a fair amount of snark online Monday about Jamie Coots, the Pentecostal pastor and reality-TV star who was fatally bitten by a snake he was handling in over-literal adherence to Luke 10:19. ("Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”) An atheist website offered this tasteless observation: “Pentecostal preachers are among the most poisonous creatures on Earth, but every once in while they bump into things even more venomous.” But even fellow Christians are finding fault with Coot for misinterpreting Scripture

As speculation that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will run for President in 2016 heats up, the question that must be asked is: Hillary 2016, prison or POTUS? Recently, the Washington Free Beacon reported on statements found in archival documents by one of Hillary Clinton’s closest friends, Diane Blair, painting a portrait of Hillary as a ruthless First Lady. Without question ruthless is an accurate description except not only is Hillary ruthless, she is lawless. As former civil servant Linda Tripp of Bill Clinton’s impeachment fame recounted to this journalist during the Clintons’ last year in the White House, Hillary was behind

On Fox News Sunday Senator Mike Lee debated Representative Xavier Becerra over the president’s repeated lawless acts related to the Affordable Care Act. (Mr. Obama has unilaterally changed or delayed the ACA 24 times without seeking the approval of Congress.) It was a rout, with Senator Lee blowing apart the argument offered up by Representative Becerra. The Democrat from California was misleading in his claims. He ducked the questions asked by host Chris Wallace and kept reverting to pabulum and talking points. Senator Lee, on the other hand, was terrific. His answers were crisp, direct, and articulate. He was principled without coming

Cruz Control?

Freshman Senator Ted Cruz says many things that need to be said and says them well. Moreover, some of these things are what many, if not most, Americans believe wholeheartedly. Yet we need to remember that the same was true of another freshman Senator, just a relatively few years ago, who parlayed his ability to say things that resonated with the voters into two terms in the White House. Who would disagree that if you want your doctor, you should be able to keep your doctor? Who would disagree with the idea of a more transparent administration in Washington, or

Three U.S. Embassy officials given 48

CARACAS, Venezuela — President Nicolas Maduro´s government on Monday gave three U.S. Embassy officials 48 hours to leave the country, accusing the Obama administration of siding with student protesters that Venezuela accuses of inciting violence. The announcement by Foreign Minister Elias Jaua came amid fears that renewed clashes could erupt Tuesday when both pro- and anti-government activists hold demonstrations in the capital. Jaua said the senior U.S. consular officers were trying to infiltrate Venezuelan universities, the hotbed of the recent unrest, under the cover of doing visa outreach. Repeating charges by Maduro, who has expelled American diplomats twice before, Jaua said the

Censusgate: When and

A tipster tried to warn the Labor Department in 2011 that its unemployment statistics were being fabricated by the people at the Census Bureau who compile the data. But the warning was either missed or ignored by Labor. That allegedly allowed the data falsification to go on for years. As I’ve been telling you, the falsification is now the subject of a number of investigations, including one by the House Oversight Committee and Congress’ Joint Economic Committee. Also investigating is the Office of the Inspector General at the Commerce Department, which is in charge of Census. And I’m hearing that the US Attorney in

The U.S. government long considered its collection of Americans´ call records to be a state secret. Now the Director of National Intelligence admits it would have been better if Washington had acknowledged the surveillance in the first place. Even the head of the U.S. intelligence community now believes that its collection and storage of millions of call records was kept too secret for too long. The American public and most members of Congress were kept in the dark for years about a secret U.S. program to collect and store such records of American citizens on a massive scale.The government’s legal

Barack Obama’s Paragraph
Politico Magazine, by Staff    Original Article

The American political system is designed to make presidents seem important. They pick their teams, their goals, their fights—and if they do these things skillfully enough, we say they’ve made history. This is what Barack Obama seems to mean by getting his “paragraph right.” Yet most of the choices that presidents make are defined by circumstance. Some things they might like to do are impossible; many successes fall into their laps; some setbacks are not their fault. Our leaders can pick many things, but not their moment in history. Obama partisans make this point incessantly. Consider, they urge, the terrible

Why Hillary Clinton´s past is
fair game in presidential race

Washington Examiner [DC], by Byron York    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 2/18/2014 1:30:52 AM     Post Reply
There´s a debate going on about Hillary Clinton´s past. If she runs for president in 2016, should Republicans reach back to the scandals of her years as First Lady? Or should they focus on more recent times, especially her tenure as Secretary of State, to build a case against her? The GOP doesn´t have to choose. Of course Clinton´s recent experiences are relevant to a presidential run. But so are her actions in the 90s, the 80s and even the 70s. It´s not ancient history; it reveals something about who Clinton was and still is. And re-examining her past is entirely consistent with practices in recent campaigns. In the 2012 presidential race,

NBC is under fire after one of its reporters questioned bronze medal winning skier Bode Miller so much about the death of his brother he began to sob uncontrollably. Correspondent Christin Cooper interviewed Miller just moments after he finished third in the Super G fnal, making him both the most medaled skier in history and the oldest person to win an alpine medal at the Games. [Snip] Miller was the first to bring up his brother, Chilly, a snowboarder who died in April from a seizure, but Cooper continued to push to the point that he had to walk away.

America’s Founding Fathers fiercely held to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness—values which Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) claimed align seamlessly with Obamacare. Pelosi explained why the law is “very sound policy” during a press conference Friday: To go to back to our founders once again, they sacrificed it all for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. This law, the affordable care act, is about a healthier life, the liberty to pursue your happiness. That is solid policy, and the mandate is central to that. This argument should be added to the montage of lies being promulgated by the Obama

Geraldo Rivera got remarkably candid in a conversation with The Blaze’s Will Cain about his desire not to outlive his own fame. He even admitted that part of the reason he’s been to dangerous places like Libya and Iraq is because he’s “been looking to get killed in action for years.” Rivera said he doesn’t want to be one of those guys who, when they die, everyone will point out how great they used to be, and that’s why he stays engaged. And, in addition to that, he likes having a little bit of danger in his life: “I want to die with

The weirdest thing about John Kerry´s weekend speech on climate-change—other than the fact that this is the same guy who in 1997 voted to forbid the U.S. from signing the Kyoto Protocol—is that it begins by quoting something Maurice Strong said at the U.N.´s 1992 Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro: "Every bit of evidence I´ve seen persuades me that we are on a course leading to tragedy." Maurice who? Mr. Strong, a former oil executive from Canada (he was Pierre Trudeau´s pick to run state-owned Petro-Canada in the mid-1970s), was for many years the U.N.´s ultimate mandarin.

Former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney on Sunday warned his party not to highlight the Monica Lewinsky scandal when attacking possible Democratic White House frontrunner Hillary Clinton, saying to keep attention instead on Clinton´s record. "I don´t think Bill Clinton is as relevant as Hillary Clinton if she decides to run for president,” Romney said on NBC´s “Meet the Press,” adding that the former first lady “has her own record and her own vision." Some Republicans, particularly Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, have refocused attention on former President Bill Clinton for the Lewinsky scandal, saying Democrats can´t frame themselves as the champions

The Girl Scouts of the USA has sent threatening letters to at least two small pro-life groups that have been critical of Girl Scout collaborations with Planned Parenthood and other abortion advocacy groups. Since the beginning of the Girl Scout cookie boycott, exclusively announced at Breitbart News late last month, LifeNews has extensively reported on the connection between Planned Parenthood and the Girl Scouts. LifeNews editor Steve Ertelt announced Monday that he had received a letter threatening legal action. In it, Girl Scout executive Brian Crawford complained about “articles that outline alleged ties to Planned Parenthood” and that “GSUSA has

An extensive collection of papers related to Bill and Hillary Clinton’s years in the Arkansas governor’s mansion remains under tight control at a public library in Little Rock, with access restricted by the Clinton Foundation. President Bill Clinton donated his papers from his tenure as Arkansas governor to the Central Arkansas Library System (CALS) in 2003, and they are housed at the Butler Center for Arkansas Studies in Little Rock. The documents could provide new insight into the early chapter of the Clintons’ political careers, as reporters take a second look at Hillary Clinton’s past in light of the information contained in

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius says there is “absolutely no evidence” that the Affordable Care Act will drive down employment, despite a report from the Congressional Budget Office released Feb. 4 predicting fewer people would be working. “There is absolutely no evidence, and every economist will tell you this, that there is any job-loss related to the Affordable Care Act,” Sebelius told reporters in Orlando, Fla., on Monday. “Part-time physicians are actually down since 2010, not up. The number of full-time workers continues to increase. I know that’s a popular myth that continues to be repeated but it
