The United States, Germany and probably other nations will soon hold talks on American surveillance tactics that include alleged spying on European allies. Amid reports that the U.S. has bugged various embassies and missions, President Obama and German Chancellor Angela Merkel had what sounds like an uncomfortable discussion by phone on Wednesday, the White House reported. "The President assured the Chancellor that the United States takes seriously the concerns of our European allies and partners," said a White House statement on the call. The White House said Obama and Merkel agreed

Alabama House reacts
to IRS-tea party issues
Associated Press, by Phillip Rawls    Original Article
Posted By: Scottyboy- 1/22/2014 3:05:31 PM     Post Reply
MONTGOMERY — Reacting to the ruckus in Washington over the Internal Revenue Service, the Alabama House voted Tuesday to make it a misdemeanor crime for state or local tax officials to audit an individual or group because of their political views. The bill’s sponsor, Republican Rep. Wayne Johnson of Ryland, said it is the result of how the IRS gave extra scrutiny to applications from tea party groups and others seeking tax-exempt status and delayed the applications for years. “Our goal is to ensure that Alabamians never have to worry about their state government threatening them because of their political views,” he

WASHINGTON — Civil rights leader Al Sharpton responded to President Barack Obama’s recent comments on the racial effect to his approval numbers by stating that he believes the president doesn’t bring up “the race card” enough. Speaking on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” this week, Sharpton said Obama has encouraged civil rights and other African-American leaders to abstain from using race issues against his opponents. Sharpton said “in every meeting” with civil rights leaders throughout the five years of his presidency, Obama has asked that his race be left out of criticism against his opposition. “He has discouraged us, who firmly believe

Obama’s 7 State of the Union talking
points. No. 1: Defending Obamacare

When President Obama brings up health care during his State of the Union address on Jan. 28, he will make one issue clear (yet) again: He will defend the Affordable Care Act against any and all political attacks this year. Unlike some other initiatives such as immigration, Obama will not ask Congress for anything, focusing instead on the law´s ongoing implementation as the top priority. While the Oct. 1 botched rollout of Healthcare.gov represented a significant blow to both the White House and Democrats more broadly (especially those on the ballot this November), the high-profile speech gives Obama the chance

NASA data shows that the ‘pause’

The so-called “pause” of global warming continued through 2013, according to NASA, as there was no statistically significant rise in global temperatures last year. “The trends over the last 10 to 15 years compared to the trends before do appear to be lower than they were,” Gavin Schmidt, climatologist with NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies, told reporters. “We’ve been looking at this in separate work and partially it seems to be a function of internal variability in the system, so the fact is that we’ve had more La Nina-like conditions over the last few years compared to earlier on in the

MONTREUX, Switzerland – U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry is calling the rocky start to Syrian peace talks “a tough and complicated process.” Kerry spoke to reporters after a bitter clash Wednesday over President Bashar Assad’s future threatened to collapse peace talks, even before they had begun, with the aim of carving a path out of Syria’s civil war. Kerry noted that the purpose of conference was to begin the creation of transitional government and that “every entity here today with one exception talked about that.” The resolution of the talks, he said, “cannot be about one man, or one

Illegal alien activists and their allies in Washington have staged vigils, occupied busy intersections and chained themselves to jailhouse fences in a coordinated campaign to persuade President Obama to declare an end to deportations, which they say are at record levels.(snip)According to the Office of Immigration Statistics within the Department of Homeland Security, which compiles and publishes immigration statistics, the Obama administration actually has the lowest number of deportations, and lowest average annual number of deportations since the Nixon administration.

Russia party leader:

MOSCOW -- The leader of Russia´s Liberal Democratic Party told U.S. President Barack Obama to get a divorce to become a more effective leader. Party leader Vladimir Zhirinovsky said Wednesday he is sending a letter to Obama explaining the leader should divorce his wife, Michelle, because world leaders should remain celibate to prevent them from being distracted from their duties, the Moscow Times reported Wednesday. Zhirinovsky said former U.S. President Bill Clinton had been "ruined" by his affair with Monica Lewinsky and it was evident from the wrinkles on Obama´s face that Michelle had already "got to" him.

Another Republican Step Backwards
Will Motivate Tea Party And Grassroots

Let’s be honest. Some Republicans just don’t want to fight on spending anymore. Some want more spending and a return to handing out favors and earmarks to their insider friends. “We surrender,” they could have admitted. Instead, House Speaker John Boehner and others tried to sell us a dream, claiming that the $1.129 trillion spending bill the House just passed moves the ball incrementally down the field towards real reform. But grassroots conservatives and tea partiers know a rotten deal when we smell one. The numbers don’t lie: the omnibus budget deal is a total spending surrender by the Old

The company which prints copies of the International New York Times sold in Malaysia blackened out the faces of pigs in two photos in the paper Wednesday, sparking ridicule online in the Muslim-majority country. KHL Printing Co superimposed black boxes on the pigs´ faces in line with government guidelines, said a company employee who declined to be named. "This is a Muslim country so we covered the pigs´ eyes," he told AFP. "We usually do that for the International New York Times -- also for pictures of cigarettes, weapons, guns and nude pictures."

The Rev. Jeremiah Wright — known for his perceived anti-American rhetoric and ties to President Obama — has come out strong against the tea party, blasting them in a speech as akin to a lynch mob. “We’ve got some unfinished business on the agenda, with one branch of the tea party being nothing but a 2.0 upgrade of a lynch party,” Mr. Wright said at a Martin Luther King Day event in Delaware, according to the Wilmington News-Journal. “We’ve got some unfinished business on the agenda, with some folks doing everything they can to get that black man out of their

In a wide-ranging interview with the New Yorker, President Obama characteristically saw fit to cast aspersions on those who disagree with him. Obama told David Remnick: There’s no doubt that there’s some folks who really just dislike me because they don’t like the idea of a black President. (Snip)I dislike President Obama because of his petulance. What other President would tell the opposition party in his first meeting with them, “I won. I’m the president,”?

The NFL is reportedly considering abolishing the extra point after touchdowns as part of its scoring system. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell told the NFL Network on Monday that the league´s Competition Committee is looking at proposals that would end extra point kicks after touchdowns in favor of a revised scoring system. "The extra point is almost automatic," Goodell told the network. "I believe we had five missed extra points this year out of 1,200 some odd (attempts). So it´s a very small fraction of the play, and you want to add excitement with every play." "There´s one proposal in particular that I´ve

The lawyer slated to represent a top Christie Christie aide sacked over the Bridgegate scandal is no longer representing her, MailOnline has learned, leading to speculation that she may be planning to turn on her former boss. The news came on an icy, snow-drifted Tuesday as Christie took his oath of office for a second term as New Jersey´s governor. Walter Timpone, a Christie-linked attorney whom Kelly retained after her public firing, received the subpoena served on her Friday by a New Jersey Assembly special investigative committee. But he is stepping aside because he has a conflict of interest.

In a radio interview last week, Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) made some disparaging comments about pro-life conservatives, stating they had “no place in the state of New York because that’s not who New Yorkers are.” Those remarks drew the ire of conservative talk show host Sean Hannity, who on his Monday radio program declared he had enough and was abandoning his home state, where he hosts his widely syndicated radio show and his high-rated Fox News Channel television program.

Former Virginia Gov. Robert F. McDonnell and his wife Maureen were charged in federal court Tuesday with illegally accepting gifts, luxury vacations and large loans from a wealthy Richmond-area businessman who sought special treatment from state government. The two were charged in connection with their relationship with dietary supplement executive Jonnie R. Williams Sr. Authorities alleged McDonnell and his wife received gifts from Williams again and again, lodging near constant requests for money, clothes, trips, golf accessories and private plane rides. In exchange, they alleged the McDonnells worked in concert to lend the prestige of the governorship to Williams’s struggling company, a

Wendy Davis, the progressive movement’s Texas darling because of her pro-late term abortion filibuster, is withering under revelations that much of her narrative of struggle and financial hardship is misleading at best, fabricated at worst. The wagons are being circled around her with claims of a War on Women and sexism … all because the truth has come out via an interview with her husband by the Dallas Morning News, and other investigation. (Snip)Here’s the key thing. The Wendy Davis campaign has been trying to keep Jeff Davis from speaking to the press for months.

The bare-bones Wendy Davis story — the one without embellishment — is sufficiently inspiring as a matrix for defying expectations. The daughter of a teenage mother and a teenage mother herself, Davis managed to beat the odds by getting a college education and Ivy League law degree, then launching a political career that’s brought her national adulation. But since Davis’ Democratic gubernatorial ambitions caught fire last year, “facts have been blurred” in the retelling of her life’s story, as reported Sunday by this newspaper’s senior political writer, Wayne Slater.

Time Magazine’s current cover depicts a tiny man hanging onto the heel of a shoe that’s emerging from a pant-suit wearing leg. “Can Anyone Stop Hillary?” reads the accompanying text. Maybe, if the cover also showed her tripping over the Senate Intelligence Committee’s just-released report on the attack that killed four Americans in Benghazi, Libya, while she was secretary of state. If New Jersey Governor Chris Christie must answer for four days of traffic jams on roads leading to the George Washington Bridge, surely Clinton has the same obligation to address a deadly assault that the bipartisan committee found “preventable.”

Are you dazed and confused by Barack Obama, the nominal Democrat, whose conduct as president since 2009 has seen him sink from nearly 70 percent to 40 percent or less in the national polling, from which he has seemed to learn nothing, but still marches on? Fear not, the doctor is in: Fred Siegel of the Manhattan Institute, whose latest book, The Revolt Against The Masses: How Liberalism Has Undermined the Middle Class, explains all you wanted to know about Obama, and much else. It explains why he never became the new Franklin D. Roosevelt, John F. Kennedy or Lyndon B.

And Mr. Obama’s words have anti-drug leaders worried about negative repercussions among youth.Mr. Obama claimed to The New Yorker magazine that marijuana is no worse than cigarettes or alcohol and he promoted state efforts by Colorado and Washington to legalize marijuana, which remains illegal under federal law.The National Drug Control Policy’s official stance, posted on the whitehouse.gov website, says the opposite of Mr. Obama on all counts.
