Boston Bombing:
The ‘Who,’ Not the ‘Why’

National Review Online, by Peter Hegseth

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 4/16/2013 4:23:46 PM

Make no mistake about it, yesterday’s bombing in Boston was a cowardly terrorist act. We don’t know yet who is responsible; all we know is that someone, or some group, targeted innocent civilians at an iconic American sporting event. Without getting into complex discussions about definitions, this is terrorism, plain and simple. Our thoughts and prayers go out to those killed or injured near the marathon finish line on Boylston Street. Their prayers, and those of their family and friends, are our prayers. And to those who ran toward the explosions to aid the wounded —

Obama, Washington Democrats and the MSM so want the perp to be a white male right-wing nut case. This would make their day.

Obama moves to impose his vision
of how we should live, Part One
Power Line, by Paul Mirengoff    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 12/27/2013 5:31:39 AM     Post Reply
As the end of the year approaches, we are waiting for the Obama administration to complete the process by which its rule on “affirmatively furthering fair housing” (AFFH) becomes embedded in the Code of Federal Regulations. In July, the Department of Housing and Urban Development issued its proposed AFFH rule for public comment. The rule was expected to be finalized this month. The AFFH rule is part of Obama’s attempt to dictate how we shall live. I’ve written about this phenomenon under the label of “regionalism” here (relying on Stanley Kurtz’s book Spreading The Wealth: How Obama Is Robbing The Suburbs

There’s a popular saying that floats around the internet on marriage or relationship-type websites, and it starts with an interviewer asking a couple that had been married for 65-years how they had managed to stay together. They responded by saying… We are from a time where if something is broken we fix it, not throw it away. Apply this to life and not just relationships, and you have a fantastic lesson: You should always try to improve things if you can. Traditional American values like this have inspired people to strive for excellence time and time again by never settling for an

Obama Admin to IDF Generals:
Stop Being So Concerned
About Israel’s Security
Washington Free Beacon, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 12/27/2013 5:24:42 AM     Post Reply
The Obama administration is pressuring Israeli generals to stop publicly voicing their concerns about the administration’s security proposals in Israeli-Palestinian negotiations and instead endorse the administration’s plans, according to Israeli media reports. The administration is seeking a complete or partial IDF withdrawal from the Jordan Valley, where the border between Israel and Jordan lies at the eastern edge of Judea and Samaria, also called the West Bank. The Palestinian Authority has long sought control of the valley. However, Israel and Jordan are opposed to an IDF withdrawal, which they fear would enable the transit of terrorists and arms through Jordan into

   

 

  


 
Rove predicts GOP unity
and Senate win in 2014
Daily Caller, by Neil Munro    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 12/27/2013 5:21:58 AM     Post Reply
Karl Rove, the voice of the Republican donor class, is predicting that tea party-backed primary candidates will lose nearly all their primary fights against business-backed GOP politicians during 2014. “Every Republican senator and virtually every representative challenged in a primary as insufficiently conservative will win,” Rove wrote in a Dec. 26 blog post, an excerpt of which appeared in The Wall Street Journal. The op-ed listed his predictions about American politics in 2014. Rove’s business vs. tea party prediction is somewhat self-serving — he’s positioned himself as a leader of the GOP-affiliated donors and businesses who are facing criticism from the tea

Hospice firms draining
billions from Medicare
Washington Post, by Peter Whoriskey & Dan Keating    Original Article

Hospice patients are expected to die: The treatment focuses on providing comfort to the terminally ill, not finding a cure. To enroll a patient, two doctors certify a life expectancy of six months or less. But over the past decade, the number of “hospice survivors” in the United States has risen dramatically, in part because hospice companies earn more by recruiting patients who aren’t actually dying, a Washington Post investigation has found. Healthier patients are more profitable because they require fewer visits and stay enrolled longer. The proportion of patients who were discharged alive from hospice care rose about 50 percent

You Missed Your Chance to
Get Super Cheap Delta Tickets

Posted By: StormCnter- 12/27/2013 5:08:27 AM     Post Reply
From 10 a.m. to noon on Thursday, Delta kind of accidentally sold a bunch of tickets on the cheap. The airline will honor tickets from anyone lucky enough to snag the fares — for example, $48.41 for a round trip between Cincinnati and Salt Lake City. The fares popped up both on Delta´s site and on outside booking agencies. A spokesperson for the company told CNN that the "situation has been resolved and the correct prices are being displayed," although several users and media outlets reported that the site was still glitchy, rendering some fares unavailable, into Thursday afternoon.

Women comprise biggest
opposition to ObamaCare

Remember Julia? That cute little cartoon the Obama folks created to illustrate how the president’s policies would provide “health and economic security” for women at all of life’s stages? The real-life Julias aren’t buying. A CNN/ORC International poll out this week finds 60 percent of women opposing ObamaCare. This follows a Kaiser Health Tracking Poll that found half of American women holding an unfavorable view of the law — against only 32 percent in support. In fact, almost all of the increase in the overall unpopularity of ObamaCare can be attributed to the growing number of women rebelling against it. No doubt this

Lack aid? Many counties

More than half of the counties in 34 states using the federal health insurance exchange lack even a bronze plan that´s affordable — by the government´s own definition — for 40-year-old couples who make just a little too much for financial assistance, a USA TODAY analysis shows. Many of these counties are in rural, less populous areas that already had limited choice and pricey plans, but many others are heavily populated, such as Bergen County, N.J., and Philadelphia and Milwaukee counties. More than a third don´t offer an affordable plan in the four tiers of coverage known as bronze, silver, gold or

We all know who he is, he knows damn well we know, at some level he actually agrees. Self-pity is the only thing he still has going for him. He’s managed to deprive the U.S. even of this last bit of suspense. His one expressed hope is that we will honor precedent and defer our call until after the 2014 elections, as if that would change anything. As he sees it, if he repeats as Enemy of the Year a year from now, it at least won’t be recorded as a twofer. Always a doggedly slow learner, he’s begun to

Professor admits faking AIDS
vaccine to get $19M in grants

An Iowa State University professor resigned after admitting he falsely claimed rabbit blood could be turned into a vaccine for the AIDS virus. Dr. Dong-Pyou Han spiked a clinical test sample with healthy human blood to make it appear that the rabbit serum produced disease-fighting antibodies, officials said. The bogus findings helped Han’s team obtain $19 million in research grants from the National Institutes of Health, said James Bradac, who oversees the institutes’ AIDS research. The remarkable findings were reported in scientific journals but raised suspicions when other researchers could not duplicate Han’s results. The NIH uncovered the scam when it checked the rabbit

Data Brokers Gathering Dossiers on Millions

WASHINGTON – A Senate panel released a report and held a hearing before the holiday break on the multibillion-dollar and largely unregulated data broker industry, which showed that these firms have several avenues to collect sensitive data on consumers. To better understand how firms in the industry operate, the Senate Commerce Committee reached out last year to nine companies that sell consumer data for marketing purposes. Based on this information, the committee staff was able to draw some conclusions in a 36-page report. Data brokers collect a huge volume of detailed data about consumers, from what illnesses they may have, to what

The Art of the Escape

In the great tradition of American civil disobedience, President Barack Obama is defying a law. It’s just one that he himself lobbied for, signed, and lost a house of Congress over. Even Henry David Thoreau would be hard-pressed to understand this one. The famous dissenter refused to pay a tax because of his opposition to the Mexican-American War and slavery; presumably, though, he would have been willing to comply with the provisions of something called ThoreauCare. President Obama is in a much more awkward spot. At every turn, he is confronted by the irrationalities and inconveniences of his own health-care law. Not

When Barack Obama rose to national prominence following his 2004 keynote address at the Democratic National Convention, his African-American heritage was a footnote to the fawning reception he received from the media and from most Americans. While the speech was not a case study in brilliant oratory, Illinois State Senator Barack Obama exuded charisma and eloquently discussed an appealing if not particularly original theme of unity and bipartisanship. Fast forward to today. President Obama´s race is no longer a footnote. It is central to his presidency. It is arguably his defining characteristic. Unity and bipartisanship are nowhere to be found.

Newspapers are among the last places in America that have close to zero tolerance for [expletive deleted]. I could give you a hint about what word is between the brackets, but I’d best not for fear of arousing the ire of the editing Comstocks. About twice a year, I quote a profanity from a public figure, using just the first letter of the word and then some bowdlerizing asterisks for the rest. No dice, my editor tells me. You’re writing for a family newspaper. There was a time when such standards were the norm at major media institutions in America.

A wild flash mob stormed and trashed a Brooklyn mall, causing so much chaos that the shopping center was forced to close during post-Christmas sales, sources said Friday. More than 400 crazed teens — who mistakenly thought the rapper Fabolous would perform — erupted into brawls all over Kings Plaza Shopping Center in Mill Basin on Thursday at 5 p.m., sources said. The troublemakers looted and ransacked several stores as panicked shoppers ran for the exits and clerks scrambled to pull down metal gates. “I was begging them to stop.

The 2016 national elections are not that far away. It is timely and important that we not wait until then to begin having constructive discussions about who should be given the opportunity and responsibility to succeed President Barack Obama.(snip)Let’s be clear: they should not be elected because they are women; they should be elected because they are qualified to lead our nation. And those who profess to have a problem with electing two women didn’t complain when we’ve elected two men throughout the history of this nation. We all remember the tremendous surge in voter turnout in 2008 and again in

President Barack Obama, first lady Michelle Obama, and their two daughters did not go to church on either Christmas Eve or Christmas Day, according to press pool reports. The Obamas are in Kailua, Hawaii for a 17-day Christmas vacation. Although the Obamas did not go to church for Christmas, President Obama did play golf during the afternoon of Dec. 24 and Mrs. Obama spoke with children by telephone on Christmas Eve for about 30 minutes concerning Santa’s whereabouts as tracked by NORAD. That same evening, the president also spoke with U.S. military personnel in different parts of the world by

If you thought the political press was taking stock of its 2012 election year coverage of Mitt Romney’s campaign and was preparing to make some course corrections in order to ensure fairer coverage of the GOP candidates ahead of 2016, you would be mistaken. Indeed, the New York Times appears to view 2012 not as an aberration but as a model for how to cover future Republican presidential campaigns. The first indication that the Times is gearing up to make a Mitt Romney out of Chris Christie came in early December as “bridge-gate,” the allegation that New Jersey’s governor sought

CNN contributor Marc Lamont Hill spoke out loudly against A&E’s decision to effectively lift it’s “suspension” of Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson. While he said he’s not “surprised” they made the decision to keep filming with the whole Robertson family, Hill found that decision “morally reprehensible.” “They had to make some sort of gesture to make people happy,” Hill said of the network, “and they did that with the suspension which essentially meant nothing.” Just a Bible network wouldn’t want a “card-carrying atheist” to represent them, he continued, A&E should be able to keep a “card-carrying homophobe” off its air

A former Minneapolis, Minnesota mayoral candidate was mercilessly beaten up by two teenage girls after having his cellphone stolen at a Mall of America Starbucks. Mark Andrew came in second to Betsy Hodges in the most competitive mayoral race Minneapolis has seen in a generation.

HONOLULU — On these sun-bathed shores, Barack Obama was born and spent his formative years, soaking in an island sensibility that his wife and friends say is indispensable to understanding who he is as president. Yet in the search for a home for his future presidential library, Hawaii has become the underdog, stuck in Chicago´s perpetual shadow. It´s not for lack of trying. A high-level campaign has been underway here since Obama won the Iowa caucuses in 2008 — before it was even clear he´d win his party´s nomination, much less the presidency.

Phil v. The Gays. With which will we side? Or rather, against which will we side? This is the question that society demands we answer. Are we anti-Phil or anti-gay or anti-GLAAD or anti-A&E or anti- … ? Perhaps no other word sums up the Duck Dynasty fiasco as aptly as the word “anti.” Whenever I hear that someone is anti-this or that, I immediately think of the old quip about MADD – are there any mothers for drunk driving? – and ask myself if anyone is really in favor of the particular thing being protested. Since GLAAD has recently taken a hard-line stance against Phil Robertson’s “anti-gay” comments, I’ve been asking myself a

FAIRFIELD, Ohio (CBS Cleveland) — A high school teacher has been suspended without pay for allegedly telling a black student “we do not need another black president” after the student said he would like to become president. Gil Voigt, a Fairfield Freshman School teacher, is facing dismissal from the school since the Fairfield Board of Education suspended him after allegedly making the racially insensitive statement to a student earlier in December. A report from Assistant Superintendent Roger Martin stated that the incident happened Dec. 3 in front of several students according to Cincinatti.com. Martin said that four students were interviewed
