Who is he? Obama keeps allies,
enemies guessing in second term

The Hill, by Justin Sink

Original Article

Posted By:ketchuplover, 6/17/2013 6:31:12 AM

Five months into his second term, allies and enemies are as confounded as ever about who President Obama really is. Is he the dyed-in-the-wool liberal that his biggest supporters and critics suggest? Or is he a pragmatic, even cynical, politician who cares more for his popularity than taking risks for his ideological goals or living up to his rhetoric? Even in the short period since his reelection, Obama has provided evidence to support conflicting interpretations. His efforts to pass immigration reform, the unsuccessful push for stricter gun controls and tax hikes on high earners buttress the case for Obama-as-ideologue.

Comments:
What´s touted by his supporters as pragmatism, is actually an absence of a moral compass, a patriotic set of values, and a desire to lead. "Who is he?" I doubt if even Obama knows.

Obama is a fraudulent front man for Islamocommunism.
Val Jar is his brain -his corrupt and vengeful brain taking revenge upon America.
The AA gave him the unearned credentials and the corrupt press the Halo.
Benghazi happened because this venal man was coked up and partying -if that isn´t the case-what was he doing?
Why did he want to get rid of Amb. Stevens?
Why was Stevens sent to meet the Turkish Amb who left unharmed?
Where was Hilary? Obama? Biden on 9/11 and who gave the order to Stand Down?
No Wag the Dog scenario with Syria-let Allah sort it out.

Who is he? Harrison Bounel? Barry Soetoro? Son of Frank Marshall Davis? Should have known this back in 2007.

The man who calls himself Barack Obama is a Trojan House. He has gotten himself inside the wall of our civilization and, when our guard was down, has been releasing all the fetid element of anti-Americanism: socialists, Marxists, terrorists, Islamists, statists, etc.

It will take years to undo this mess.

OP, good comment. I agree. Then there´s this:

They also say the Democratic grassroots see Obama’s White House as politically shrewd. They cite the way the administration fought during the election year against making Plan B birth control available to all women, but then quietly dropped that opposition last week.

That´s important. We who disagree with O´s policies believe that our short term victories last. They don´t. Because in the dead of night or in Friday document dumps, he changes his mind and his agenda gets passed anyway.

There is great danger in rushing to claim victory just because the polls are not going his way. It´s what goes on when we´re not watching that matters. For example:

“He’s not judged by how fast he moves policy, he’s judged by the end result,...”

Take a look at the "end result" so far. Would any sensible person say that O has not moved America hard Left?

Obama´s allies aren´t guessing who he is because it does not matter to them. It is all about progressive-ism and grinding Republicans into dust. They really are totally committed to fundamentally changing this nation. Everything that has made us strong as a nation is under attack. Our wealth and prosperity, moral compass, religious beliefs, work ethic, military superiority, and patriotism are vanishing because they conflict with Obama´s vision. Obama´s government is laying the foundation for a totalitarian state because it represents his political beliefs. He has the heart of a dictator.

I have absolutely no patience with any supposed educated, reasonable person who is JUST NOW STARTING to figure this out. As #7 succinctly stated, these things about Obama WERE known, by us, long before the systematic and accelerated destruction of the United States began in January 2009. it was all out there to be discovered by anyone else who cared to put Truth before agenda.

But we were called names for daring to speak these Truths. We have been punished, ridiculed, even persecuted for believing that America deserves better, that through our blood, tears, sacrifices, hard work and honesty, America does deserve to be the best.

Obama and his wrecking crew are a toxin in our national blodstream that must be eradicated. And as usual, the cure could be more painful than the disease. But it has to be done or this sick country will die a pitifully premature death.

Anyone who didn´t see this coming is a fool and a disgrace to their God-given ability to think.

Who is he??? I´ll tell you folks....

obama is a vengeful/bitter/spoiled/brat who never grew up. He´s still fighting the demons placed in his brain by his twisted mother and absent father....

He fit right into the "affirmative" action game. He gets the glory and perks -- BUT -- doesn´t want to do the job. I´ve had this experience first hand with an affirmative action secretary who sat next to me and played games on the computer all day as I worked to complete my work and hers as well. Same pay -- but -- not the same standard set by the PC crowd.

Here´s affirmative action in full view of the world. Mediocre is the name of the game.

Who the h@ll is running the white house?

Obama is a smooth talking narcissist who cares for nothing but Obama and the perks of office. Where was the man the night of Benghazi?---I am positive he loftily said "fix it" to Hillary & Company( proving that answering the phone at 3 a.m. is a big zero with the woman) and went to bed so he could be fresh for yet another fund raiser, the only thing the man is good at. THE ONE THING I AM POSITIVE OF is that Obama does the fund raising not so much to aid his Party as to get that adulation he thrives on, and in person. THAT is who Barack Obama is: a man hooked on himself and delighted with those who feel the same way. PERIOD!

He keeps us guessing whether or not he will be a man who leads the people out of bad times into good times--epic fail!

There is no such thing as a "new demonrat". It is nothing more than the same old crap dressed up in someone who would be elected not based on experience, but as a media puppet creation whose fake credentials can no longer be supported by trickery.

The man has a plan put forth for him by his handlers to scam the public and bring unmitigated socialism to this country in a effort to ´even the score´.

The problem as Lady Margaret Thatcher once said, is that eventually there are no more rich people to take down.

The rich "white" people who studied history and knew of man´s inevitable nature were unfair. Everything needs to be made "fair".

The mistaken notion that what we need is more government power over us and the right leader has been shown to lead to tyranny just as the Founders said and iy is showing itself true yet again today.

I´m not sure I care any longer WHO he is. As others mention, I´m not sure even HE knows.

But the results of his presidency have been disastrous for the Country and especially for the people he claims to support. His "signature" achievement, BOCare, is about to explode on the Country, driving people out of significantly more costly health insurance. Unions see members losing insurance and dropping union membership in retaliation. Everyone sees costs going up significantly. Most unbiased analysis show that coverage will NOT be universal because it will be too expensive. The management of the system is already far behind where it was supposed to be and it is questionable if it is manageable at all. I expect the quality of care to drop as the system becomes starved for money. The people most impacted are the poor and lower middle class, those BO promises to champion.

WHY did he do this? Who really knows? But the actual results are a disaster and that shows this guy is nowhere near as clever as he thinks he is. He leads with his ideology and opinions but doesn´t have the brains to back it up. He only gets away with it because the MSM drools over him.

I don´t think Obama puts much thought into the positions he takes on issues. Once he takes a position his arrogance won´t allow him to consider opposing points of view and actually has disdain for anyone with the temerity to challenge him. Barry has been painted as an intellectual who is above all the partisan debate in Washington. A true intellectual loves a good debate in the arena of ideas. Barry would rather win using sealed divorce records and intimidation rather than through a robust debate where he may get humiliated by his lack of knowledge.

In the rare instance that he actually moves toward the correct answer on an issue such as not closing Gitmo he pretends that someone else is to blame for failing to get his original position implemented. He is too arrogant to admit he was wrong so he sends the signal to his staff to keep Gitmo open and find someone to blame while publicly stating he wants it closed.

Dysfunctional doesn´t begin to describe this man and his administration.

That´s a good question. Many of his actions don´t make sense. All judgement of his actions should be tempered with the fact he is nothing like how he portrayed himself as all things not Bush/2008 as in a liar is a liar is a liar.

First of all he is obviously a pro-Muslim politician yet he is all for the gay lobby. Nevermind that in an emerging Sharia Law society the gays would be killed right away, a cold hard fact he seems to pretend does not exist. He just wants them on board for support, to eventually be disposed of, perhaps?

He seems to run interference for Russia as in "more flexibility after he wins another term" and does not deploy SDI defenses in Poland, Czech Republic, yet fights proxy war against them in Syria, continues to spy on them. On another note Obama reveals to Russia exactly how many nukes Britain has and Britain doesn´t bat an eyelash, still helps with military support later to overthrow Gadhafi.

He supports all things Muslim with a preference for the Sunni side of things. He could have intervened in Shiite Iran when their motorcycle brigades were whipping and killing people, scored a victory for Sunni dominance, yet he remained silent and let the opportunity fester and slip away. So Iran is alive and well, intervenes in Syria, continues to work towards nuclear bombs, is still a big problem for him.

It still boggles the mind how he can say he is for women, with that pesky Sharia law aspect out there where women are treated like chattel.

to be continued.

continued:

He claims he is all for kids and making sure they aren´t shot, yet trumpets unbridled access to abortion. Throw in that lefties are all for unconditional abortion, yet against the death penalty for habitual killers. What sense does that make? I had a left say to me, "how dare you make that comparison!". too bad it is a comparison that needs to be made. He claims to be all in for kids yet his henchwoman Sebelius would not allow a young girl to have a lung transplant. Go figure.

His modus is clear: he could tell a foreign nation "you are my friend, because the enemy of my enemy is my friend", then slip in during the night and terminate his "new friend" perhaps justifying the betrayal as "they had an unfair advantage because of superior weaponry"(socialism fairness yadda yadda).

#4´s comment that "it will take years to undo this mess," is an interesting possibility, but, perhaps, an overly optimistic view and, certainly, an untested supposition. Obama´s eventual retirement will not guarantee a recovery while the following social conditions persist. Nearly half the country dependent on some kind of government welfare. A Democrat Party in the hands of ultra-liberals and a GOP pushing only liberal-lite legislation. An education system (K - Grad School) that promotes only progressive solutions to every social issue. A government bureaucracy and their unions, so shot with liberal zeal that they see nothing wrong with the IRS´s recent pogrom against conservative Americans. A main stream media that celebrates every liberal cause and attacks or completely ignores every conservative opinion. And let us not forget Hollywood and the bulk of our entertainment industry that regularly uses its products to denigrate patriotic and religious and old-style family values. In 1776, Thomas Paine´s "Common Sense" galvanized Americans into finally rejecting King George III and Britain as legitimate overseers and helped precipitate the Revolution. But where is there, today, a modern Thomas Paine and what can be done when there are so many royalists running our government and the rest of our culture?

This "mess" will never be fixed. The dems have discovered that it makes no difference what POS you run - just promise the lo-fo´s more "free stuff" and do everything you can to get them to the polls as often as you can and control enough of the polls that voting fraud is rampant. This is the End-Game, politics wise. Time for Plan B.

All of the above.
The old sixties American hating hippies gelled in the nineties they were all waiting for the ´right´ delivery system to launch their progressive communist agenda. Obama was perfect. Black skin and no shuck and jive comic black. Perfect, his skin being his insulation. The evil party of democrats had the nuclear project to destroy Republicans into sand. It´s working and Republicans are dunderheads and clueless as to what´s happening to them.
Evil had descended upon us the only thing next is the out and out killing of Americans who oppose them. Don´t think it won´t happen think Benghazi here if you want to see a heartless, no feeling government.

I agree he doesn´t "know" who he is. Furthermore, I don´t think he even cares if he knows who he is. I suspect that in his sick twisted mind he is some kind of evolving deity and the future looks even better than the present. "What, Me Worry?". He was a seriously flawed adolescent, admittedly "exotic" by local standards, who fell into the "Affirmative Action" bubble, and parlayed that to today. He is only a composite of BS poured into him. He checks his surroundings and the read-back is: I am really quite something, am I not?"

He´s not caring(so stupid to think he ever was) he´s not intellectual, he´s naive, he´s a radical, he´s lazy, he spends money like it is going out of style, he´s not a writer or a thinker, he hates Americans, he hates Christians, he´s unmannerly, he lies, he has no moral center, and there is just no way he can identify with any of this country´s populace. He isn´t even black. He´s the worst president we have ever had and they are asking who he is?????? Ridiculous. Just ridiculous.

"...Who is he? Obama keeps allies,

As several people stated (paraphrased) "...Obama may not know even who he is..."

And that very conundrum may be his downfall. The topical question should be asked to the person who is on the other end of Barry´s Blackberry! I would just speculate that the real problem for Barry will be when he has exhausted his usefulness and is more of an obstacle rather than useful to that ´Power´. Barry will not be able to vacation without those truckloads of bulletproof glass, armored limos, and a couple of Divisions of SS agents and a pipeline to the US Treasury. IMHO.

Who is he? It is simple...he is the very weak resemblence of Chauncey Gardner from the book and film, "Being There".

BO is just there. He has zero clue what is going on and I am sick and tired of reading and hearing about his brilliance.

The guy is an affirmative action poster child. Obtained privilege because he checked black in the questionnaire.

People voted for him because he was not as obnoxious as Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson. And white guilt could live with him(way larger than JFK or B. Clinton).

BO could eliminate Detroit, Oakland, Atlanta and Compton and "his people" would still vote for him.

He is an outright racist, despises white people and is either a muslim or a complete enabler of muslims against the US.

Nixon was impeached and vilified for the cover up of a 3rd rate burglary. Clinton impeached for perjury. And this bozo gets innocent civilians and military personnel murdered and he still carries the Nobel Peace Prize and adored globally?

The money and power backing this clown has to be more powerful than the Mafia and the Russians combined.

And add insult to injury, this total idiot is perpetually on vacay with his 10,000s of his possies all over the world accomplishing nothing on our dime. 100,000 million dollars during a frickin Depression on this vacay.

Yea, like visiting Africa is a strategic choice for diplomacy? No it is vacay for Michelle and the "girls". Mandela the necessary excuse.

It is sickening...and I do not care who is reading my e-mails. Remember the 1st Amendment.

Correction --- Nixon was not impeached. His own party forced him to resign.That took determination Democrats totally lack.
We may not know who he is but we certainly know what he is and it´s so ugly the words to describe him are too gutter to mention here.
If the black population peaked past his skin tones they would find he is treating them like the vicious black overseers treated the slaves.
Black unemployment is now above 25% and will increase if the immigration bill becomes law

This is ridiculous. Anyone who pays the least amount of attention knows he is helpless without a script, lazy, devoted to partying, and has only a general agenda, the details of which are left to his handlers. He himself is irrelevant, his thuggish handlers direct the Office of the President.

I don´t blame him personally, or even care about him. He´s just a fool who was groomed from day one to slip into a position of power and be a sock puppet. What´s pathetic is that while he was being groomed and boosted from position to position, the entire country was also being groomed to accept politics and supposed reality at face value.

Mickey Rooney, Legendary Actor,
Dies at 93
Variety, by Carmel Dagan    Original Article
Posted By: ketchuplover- 4/6/2014 11:52:45 PM     Post Reply
Mickey Rooney, the pint-sized actor who was one of MGM’s giant box office attractions in the late ’30s and early ’40s, died on Sunday. He was 93. As adept at comedy as drama and an excellent singer and dancer, Rooney was regarded as the consummate entertainer. During a prolific career on stage and screen that spanned eight decades (“I’ve been working all my life, but it seems longer,” he once said), he was nominated for four Academy Awards and received two special Oscars, the Juvenile Award in 1939 (shared with Deanna Durbin) and one in 1983 for his body of work.

Vampires, nudists, snakes: Nobody

Last week, news broke that a congressional candidate in Gainesville had a secret pastime: impersonating vampires. And superheroes. Some people would call this nutty. In Florida, we just call it Tuesday. Seriously, that´s not even our highest-profile vampire story. Remember the "vampire killings" from Lake County? Some of our stories are heartbreakingly tragic. But so many are also mind-numbingly strange. In Florida, we do weird the way Kansas does wheat. Here, giant pet snakes escape. And breed. And then invade our national parks. We have fish that eat people, alligators that eat people and people who eat people.

Brothers´ app blocks texting
while driving

One of the latest tools targeting the growing problem of texting while driving didn´t come out of Apple, Google or Microsoft. It was the brainchild of two Orlando-area entrepreneurs who recently launched a new mobile app called Txt Shield. The idea behind Txt Shield, which runs on Android phones, is to short-circuit any texting capability when people are cruising down the highway, according to brothers Philip and Geoffrey Stiles, co-founders and partners in Txt Shield LLC. Parents can install it on their teens´ phones; employers can put it on company-issued phones; and individuals can download it to help resist the urge to

Tens of Thousands of Illegal
Immigrant Criminals

President Obama’s Department of Homeland Security caught then released 68,000 aliens who had previously been convicted of a crime, a new report from the Center for Immigration Studies shows. The report, provided to Breitbart News ahead of its late Sunday evening release, reviews internal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) metrics to conclude that the Obama administration released 35 percent—or 68,000—convicted criminal aliens back into the U.S. general population when they could have been deported. (Snip) In response to these findings from CIS that follow up on his office’s report last week, Sessions said immigration law in America has essentially ceased to

San Jose, Calif. — A usually busy DMV office in San Jose was closed Friday after a motorist waiting to take a driver´s test crashed her car into the building and caused a gas leak. The driver declined to give her name but told KTVU she was nervous about taking the driver´s license tests because this would have been her third try. Around noon the line started to move but she said she hit the accelerator instead of the brake and rammed a motorcycle rider in front of her. Then, she said she swerved to try to avoid running over the rider and

Obama on undocumented Irish:
Our immigration system is broken

President Obama says the thousands of Irish immigrants in the US are being denied opportunities because of the US strict immigration laws. The President was speaking the traditional Shamrock ceremony at the White House as part of the St Patrick´s Day celebrations. The issue of immigration reform was a priority for the Irish Government delegation, led by Enda Kenny. The delegation has been lobbying in Washington during the St Patrick´s Day trip for reforms to benefit the 50,000 undocumented Irish there. President Obama said too many undocumented Irish were denied the chance to contribute to society as they were not able to pay taxes

These are the 634 runways where the missing Malaysia Airlines plane could have landed after a potential hijacking. Today Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak said investigators believe flight MH370´s disappearance is the result of ´deliberate action´ by someone on the plane. During a dramatic press conference, he said satellite evidence showed the aircraft´s transponder was turned off and it change direction shortly before it vanished. (Snip) Mr Razak said it is believed to have been heading in a westerly and then north westerly direction. The revelation gives hope to the families of the 227 passengers and 12 crew that the Boeing 777 may

President Barack Obama held a Spanish language town hall at the Newseum last week in which he was interviewed by reporters from some of the largest Spanish media outlets in the world. During the interview, he was asked a question from a man who wanted to buy Obamacare for a family of three but couldn’t afford it. (Snip) Obama couldn’t settle on a single answer to the question, so he instead suggested that the man should just sign up for Medicaid, blamed Texas for affordable insurance not being available, and concluded by saying the man should cancel his telephone service

Why discredited ‘scandals’
get less attention
MSNBC, by Steve Benen    Original Article
Posted By: ketchuplover- 3/12/2014 8:48:55 PM     Post Reply
On Fox News last night, Bill O’Reilly struggled with a question he apparently finds confusing: why aren’t major news organizations covering the IRS “scandal” to his satisfaction. Lois Lerner, the former head of the IRS’ tax exempt division, took the Fifth last week, but most of the media seemed indifferent. (Snip) That’s one possible explanation. But in the interest of giving O’Reilly and Goldberg something else to consider, there’s a more plausible, reality-based reason the media has lost interest in this scandal: there is no scandal. As we’ve discussed on more than a few occasions, the story has already been

The past two days have revealed the dangerous ramifications of the narrow-minded foreign policy elite in Washington, and a media establishment that has for so much of President Obama’s tenure accepted the statements of the administration as gospel. (Snip) If this is the sort of foreign policy anticipation that the establishment delivers, it’s little surprise that no one trusts America’s self-styled policy elites any more. They are too used to judging the world according to the patterns toward which they are already biased, as opposed to seeing it as it is.

In little more than a year, one small boy has raised more than three-quarters of a million dollars to help his sick best friend by selling copies of a book he wrote himself. Now well on his way to the ambitious goal of $1 million, Dylan Siegal, a seven-year-old from Los Angeles, is selling his book ´Chocolate Bar´ to raise funds for Jonah Pournazarian, eight, his best friend who suffers from a rare condition called glycogen storage disease type 1B. Dylan became concerned about Jonah when he found out researchers were almost out of funding to conduct studies into the

The Ten Most Abusive
Obama Executive Actions

President Obama has made liberal use of "executive action" throughout his presidency, and pledged to make even more use of executive action in this year´s State of the Union speech. He seems to think that because Republicans don´t want to implement his agenda, he can go around Congress. The Heritage Foundation is out with a new report on President Obama´s executive actions, titled "An Executive Unbound," finding that "abusive, unlawful, even potentially unconstitutional unilateral action has been a hallmark of the Obama Administration." They´ve also compiled a list of the top ten abusive executive actions taken by the President.

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No
