FTA: ´´ Up to 1,000 mud homes were damaged, it added.´´

Is this the 21st century or the 7th?

Via Twitchy we learn that Mike Dickinson, hoping to challenge House Majority Whip Eric Cantor in central Virginia, is running against Fox News, even asking for Federal Communications Commission regulation. "Fox News does nothing but tell lies and mistruths. They have unqualified political analysts. We need FCC to monitor and regulate them," he tweeted. "Fox News is basically a opinion channel. It´s there (sic) view of events. It´s not news. They lie and distort everything to fit their opinion," he added. He also tweeted Sean Hannity was "just as qualified" a political analyst as comedian Kevin Hart and even a

In case you missed it over the last few days: Ukraine has descended into total chaos and Venezuela is following close behind. In Ukraine, the turmoil has mostly taken place in Kiev. The protests were inspired by President Viktor Yanukovych’s set of anti-protest laws. The situation has only worsened as the government has used force to crack down on the large gatherings. The latest reports place the Kiev death toll at 38. According to VICE‘s UK editor, Henry Langston, local hotels are being used as morgues as the bloodshed worsens. Reporting from the heart of the chaos, he wrote [emphasis

The Obama Legacy: Majoring
on Minor Issues
American Thinker, by Chad Stafko    Original Article

Last week, President Barack Obama signed an executive order raising the minimum wage for government contract workers to $10.10/hour, up from $7.25/hour. This is a pay raise of 39%, and it begins on January 1, 2015. Applause erupted throughout the East Room of the White House, as President Obama, flanked by a number of these workers, spoke about the great need to raise workers´ wages and how he was taking the lead in doing so. The president´s rationale justifying his actions could not be more wrong, and the smattering of applause speaks to the blatant ignorance many have in the

MIDDLETOWN TOWNSHIP—Gov. Chris Christie reflected on the impact of superstorm Sandy on New Jersey and the difficult choices in distributing money during a town-hall meeting held in this Jersey Shore town hard hit by the disaster. The town hall meeting—one of the Republican governor´s signature events—was the first one he´s held since a controversy came to the surface last month surrounding the George Washington Bridge. It was also the first town hall he´s held since his re-election in November. Around 400 people attended the event in the Port Monmouth section of this township, filling a local Veterans of Foreign Wars

   

 

  


 
Cruz Responds to his House
of Cards ‘Character’
Townhall, by Cortney O´Brien    Original Article

The Netflix series House of Cards has been both praised and criticized for its portrayal of DC politics. The show has become so popular, it’s near impossible to avoid the name Frank Underwood on Twitter. It´s another character, however - Sen. Curtis Haas - who is causing a bit of controversy, thanks to his noticeable likeness to Tea Party hero Senator Ted Cruz. A few key details make the Cruz comparison plausible: First, Haas is referred to as a “Tea Party Bullhorn.” This metaphorical label certainly applies to Cruz and recently was by a Time article, which stated that his

As a child growing up in Detroit and Boston, I had many opportunities to experience the ugly face of racism and witnessed the devastating toll exacted by its mean-spirited nature. I was a victim of the racism of low expectations for black children, but in retrospect, I can see that many of those attitudes were based on ignorance. Large numbers of white people actually believed that blacks were intellectually inferior, and there was a host of other inaccurate beliefs that whites held about blacks and that blacks held about whites. Many of those misperceptions probably would have persisted if measures

Ted Cruz discussed the debt-ceiling fight and the 2014 midterms in an interview with CNN this week, explaining why he chose to filibuster the bill that staved off another shutdown this February — to the anger of his fellow Senate Republicans facing tough reelection campaigns. He told Dana Bash: "What Republican leadership said is we want this to pass, but if every senator affirmatively consents to doing it on 51 votes, then we can all cast a vote no and we can go home to our constituents and say we opposed it. And listen, that sort of show vote, that

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin endorsed fierce Texas conservative Katrina Pierson in her underdog bid to primary incumbent Rep. Pete Sessions (R-TX) in Texas´s 32nd congressional district. Palin called Pierson a "feisty fighter" who is "an emerging leader and important voice for the future of the grassroots conservative movement." "Her life’s story is full of hardships she has fought to overcome, which taught her firsthand the importance of self-reliance, hard work, and the blessings of liberty," Palin said.

"Almost heaven" is how the late singer John Denver described West Virginia. But maybe not, according to a new survey from the Gallup poll people. The Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index found that North Dakota residents had the highest well-being in the nation in 2013, followed by South Dakota. The Dakotas -- boosted by fracking in recent years -- bumped out Hawaii, which held the top spot for the previous four years. West Virginia and Kentucky had the two lowest well-being scores for the fifth year in a row. The Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index scores the states, and the nation, on a scale

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker believes Hillary Clinton´s biggest obstacle as a presidential candidate will be her deep connections to Washington. "I think the biggest problem that [former] Secretary of State Clinton has is much bigger than just that, it’s that she is throughout her adult life, she has been a product of Washington, whether she’s been there, worked there, secretary of state, United States senator, not only first lady, but back to her days working on the Hill," Walker said during an interview with conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt on Wednesday evening. Walker, a potential 2016 GOP candidate, suggested that

President Obama told Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper on Wednesday that his fondness for America´s neighbor to the north may wane in the coming days, with a pair of major Olympic hockey showdowns scheduled. “My brother-in-law is Canadian, so you know, I have to like Canadians,” Obama quipped. “Although I will note that I think we are going to have both the men´s hockey teams and the women´s hockey teams battling it out, so for a very brief period of time, I might not feel as warm towards Canadians as I normally do, at least until those matches are over.”

The Clarion Project has unearthed Federal Bureau of Investigations documents detailing a 22-site network of terrorist training villages sprawled across the United States. According to the documents, the FBI has been concerned about these facilities for about 12 years, but cannot act against them because the U.S. State Department has not yet declared that their umbrella group, MOA/Jamaat ul-Fuqra, as a Foreign Terrorist Organization. MOA stands for Muslims of the Americas, which is linked to radical Pakistani Muslim cleric Sheikh Mubarak Ali Gilani. The FBI documents that Clarion has obtained show that the group is headquartered in the well known “Islamberg”

Sarah Palin has made an endorsement in Texas. She’s backing tea party leader Katrina Pierson over Rep. Pete Sessions. In a Facebook post, Palin notes that Pierson’s “life’s story is full of hardships she has fought to overcome, which taught her firsthand the importance of self-reliance, hard work, and the blessings of liberty.” One of those hardships includes a 1997 arrest for shoplifting. As the Dallas Morning News reported on Valentine’s Day, “In 1997, five days before her 21st birthday, Katrina Pierson, then named Katrina Lanette Shaddix, was arrested on a charge of theft of greater than $50 and less than $500.” Pierson,

WASHINGTON, D.C., February 17, 2014 – President Barack Obama has elevated the right to have sex with a member of the same sex to the level of universal “fundamental freedoms” in a new presidential statement criticizing Uganda. But critics say his promotion of homosexuality in a continent that overwhelmingly opposes that behavior amounts to a form of liberal “cultural imperialism.” Obama wrote on Sunday that he opposed a proposed bill in Uganda that would criminalize same-sex “marriages” and impose life imprisonment for repeated homosexual acts, among other provisions, because “as a country and a people, the United States has consistently

Foreign Policy: John Kerry calls global warming "the world´s most fearsome weapon of mass destruction." Has the secretary of state forgotten the world´s real WMDs? Or is he just off his medication? There´s a long list of Cabinet secretaries and senior aides to President Obama who have failed the nation so resoundingly they should be shown the door. But Secretary John Kerry, who dumped his military decorations in 1971 and was dumped by voters as a presidential candidate in 2004, should definitely be the first one out. In a pathetic attempt to distract from the Obama administration's foreign policy failures,

Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnel (R-Ky.) are now in position to end the Tea Party’s death grip on the Republican Party’s political future. Last week, Boehner and McConnell faced down the Tea Party’s threat to cripple the government when they supported raising the nation’s debt ceiling. That move prevented GOP political suicide. If the nation’s credit rating, stocks and the recovery went down the sewer because of Republicans’ refusal to raise the debt ceiling, the GOP’s chances in the midterm elections would have been severely damaged. Having successfully defied the Tea Party on the debt ceiling, now

Raising the minimum wage to $10.10 by 2016 will help "people who just want to work hard," but it also will help those who want to "work less," White House economic adviser Gene Sperling told MSNBC´s "Morning Joe" on Wednesday. He argued that Americans support raising the minimum wage because it will lift "struggling" families out of poverty: "But they also know what it´s like to see a friend, a neighbor, where one spouse goes back to work, who would prefer maybe not to work. Maybe they´re working part-time just to supplement the family´s income. And they think, if that

Obama also touted his auto bailout and green energy initiatives as major successes. "Anybody who had dire predictions for the auto industry and said, ´We couldn´t do it. Manufacturers couldn´t bring jobs back to America.´ Every time they say that, they are proven wrong," said Obama. Obama added, "Anybody who says we can´t compete when it comes

Barack Obama has penned a handwritten apology to an angry professor after suggesting that learning a trade would be a better career choice than studying for an art history degree. During a speech at a General Electric plant in Wisconsin, the President said that ´folks can make a lot more potentially with skilled manufacturing or the trades than they might with an art history degree.´ He was inundated with letters from art historians and journalists all furious at his remarks - but one professor´s comments caught his eye - and he sent a handwritten apology to her.
