Egypt arrests Brotherhood spiritual
leader; Mubarak could be released

Washington Post, by Mary Beth Sheridan

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 8/19/2013 10:57:51 PM

CAIRO — Security forces arrested the spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood on Monday night, in an escalating showdown with the influential Islamist movement that has led to the ouster of Egypt’s first democratically elected president and some of the bloodiest urban violence in its modern history. Mohammed Badie, a white-bearded professor, was shown on state television being whisked away to prison in a car, sitting next to a security officer in a bulletproof vest. His arrest, as well as those of other Muslim Brotherhood leaders, had been ordered after last month’s coup. Badie’s detention was the latest in a

IS anyone else tired of that phrase the first democratic elected president in Egypts history.
If that was true Morsi would not have turned radical governance loose on that nation.

If I was Obama (and I am NOT), I would be watching the events unfolding in Egypt and wonder if the ouster of a power-hungry leader and his political party could happen to me. Oh, what am I saying, he doesn´t think...he simply reads the prompter and wags his bony finger in the air to see which way the wind blows (and he gets that wrong too.

Super Bowl 2014:
Seahawks Bury Broncos
Wall Street Journal, by Kevin Clark    Original Article

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J.—Peyton Manning is 37 years old. He has had four neck surgeries. He has admitted he doesn´t have the arm he used to. But despite all that, it took him until Sunday night to look truly helpless. Like he was staring at something even he, the most prepared quarterback in NFL history, couldn´t navigate. It seemed like the quarterback who had always thought of everything had nothing left. The Seattle Seahawks wrecked Manning and his historically spectacular offense to win Super Bowl XLVIII, 43-8, in one of the biggest blowouts in the history of the league´s biggest game.

Study: Abortion rate at
lowest point since 1973
Washington Post, by Sandhya Somashekhar    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 2/2/2014 10:08:57 PM     Post Reply
The abortion rate in the United States dropped to its lowest point since the Supreme Court legalized the procedure in all 50 states, according to a study suggesting that new, long-acting contraceptive methods are having a significant impact in reducing unwanted pregnancies. There were fewer than 17 abortions for every 1,000 women in 2011, the latest year for which figures were available, according a paper published Monday from the Guttmacher Institute, a pro-abortion-rights think tank. That is down 13 percent from 2008 and a little higher than the rate in 1973, when the Supreme Court handed down its landmark Roe

HealthCare.gov can’t handle
appeals of enrollment errors

Tens of thousands of people who discovered that HealthCare.gov made mistakes as they were signing up for a health plan are confronting a new roadblock: The government cannot yet fix the errors. Roughly 22,000 Americans have filed appeals with the government to try to get mistakes corrected, according to internal government data obtained by The Washington Post. They contend that the computer system for the new federal online marketplace charged them too much for health insurance, steered them into the wrong insurance program or denied them coverage entirely. For now, the appeals are sitting, untouched, inside a government computer. And

Obama’s solo strategy to pit
GOP anger vs. Democrat zeal
Washington Times, by Dave Boyer    Original Article

With his new emphasis on creating government policy through executive fiat, President Obama is betting he will fire up his Democratic base more than he will infuriate Republican voters in this year’s midterm elections. Democrats increasingly are abandoning their dream of winning back the House in November. Even Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz said last week that she can’t “confidently predict” it. But the president needs Democrats to hold on to the Senate, where a swing of six seats would give Republicans control, to have any hope of achieving more of his policy goals and reshaping

Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson’s newest appointee to his inner circle, chief of staff Christian Marrone, rose to Washington power player via the streets of Pennsylvania’s pay-to-play politics. Mr. Marrone acknowledged in court that as a Pennsylvania legislative aide he oversaw the private renovation of his politician boss’s mansion — all while drawing paychecks from taxpayers, according to court records reviewed by The Washington Times. Mr. Marrone was never charged, but prosecutors estimated that he spent 80 percent of his first year and a half in his state job doing the private work of state Sen. Vince Fumo, the records

The tea party might have a lot of enemies, but they also have friends — with deep pockets. Two national tea party groups were given a combined total of almost $8 million during the last six months of fiscal year 2013, according to Roll Call. The Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund filed receipts of over $4 million and disbursements of $3.8 million leaving a little over $1 million cash on hand at the end of 2013, Roll Call reported. Almost $3 million came from donors who gave $200 or less each. The largest donor, Cary Katz, CEO of College Loan

Obama Pollster Gaffe: Income
Inequality ´A Bit Overhyped´
Breitbart´s Big Government, by Wynton Hall    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 1/31/2014 7:43:01 PM     Post Reply
Last month, President Barack Obama hailed income inequality as "the defining challenge of our time." Politico says nervous Democrats are "convinced" the issue will help stave off midterm election losses to Republicans. On Wednesday, however, Obama´s own pollster, Joel Benenson, told reporters at a Democratic gathering he believes "the attention on inequality is a bit overhyped." Benenson said the widening gap between rich and poor is "a real issue in America"; however, CS Monitor says Obama´s pollster "doesn´t think Americans resent people at the top who have done well--as long as the playing field is level." Benenson´s comments echo recent

Economy Is Expanding, but Obama’s

Five years into the Obama presidency, the American economy is finally showing some momentum. The Commerce Department reported on Thursday that the economy grew by 3.2 percent in the final quarter of 2013, echoing the even stronger 4.1 percent pace of expansion in the summer months and providing the White House with a rare bit of good news despite dismal public approval ratings. But even if 2014 turns out to be what the president called a “breakout year” in his State of the Union address Tuesday, the country will still have a lot of catching up to do before the

Federal agents arrested the owners of two employment agencies in Houston´s vibrant Chinatown on Thursday and charged them with allegedly providing hundreds of undocumented workers, mostly from Latin America, to prep food, bus tables and wash dishes in Chinese restaurants. The Chinatown raid came as part of a multistate crackdown by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement that led to the arrest of 21 other owners and managers of Chinese restaurants in South Texas, Louisiana and parts of Arkansas who allegedly employed and exploited the illegal workers.

Conservative groups are mounting a major resistance effort against the Internal Revenue Service’s post-tea party targeting scandal rules, which are designed to clamp down on outside groups’ ability to organize as nonprofits and still play a role in political conversations. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell fired a major shot Thursday, taking to the chamber floor to say the rules amount to a declaration of war on free speech and vowing the GOP will try to block them. “Every American needs to know about this abuse of power,” said Mr. McConnell, Kentucky Republican. “Let me be clear: What the administration is

House GOP wants legal status but

House Republican leaders have ruled out a special pathway to citizenship but do support granting some form of legal status and work permits to most illegal immigrants, according to the broad set of principles GOP leaders released Thursday that pushed the issue back to the political forefront. The brief document, circulated to House Republicans who are holding their annual policy retreat in Maryland, calls for giving young illegal immigrants — known as Dreamers — a chance at citizenship. Republican leaders also said they will insist on a “zero tolerance policy” for future illegal immigrants and will revamp the system to

Before I get to the tweets that serve as a timeline, we need to set the stage. David Rauf is the Austin bureau reporter for the San Antonio Express-News and the Houston Chronicle. Those newspapers serve Texas’ largest and second-largest cities. They are big dogs among the Texas press. Jan Soifer is the chair of the Travis County Democratic Party. The Travis County Democratic Party held a fundraiser with Wendy Davis on Tuesday, and Davis delivered her stump speech. That’s normal stuff.

WHEN Woody Allen received a Golden Globe award for lifetime achievement a few weeks ago, there was a lively debate about whether it was appropriate to honor a man who is an artistic giant but also was accused years ago of child molestation. Allen’s defenders correctly note that he denies the allegations, has never been convicted and should be presumed innocent. People weighed in on all sides, but one person who hasn’t been heard out is Dylan Farrow, 28, the writer and artist whom Allen was accused of molesting.

In November, the U.S. Postal Service reported it had a $5 billion loss for Fiscal Year 2013, its seventh consecutive year with loss. At the time, Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe blamed Congress for the loss, citing an “inflexible business model.” “We’ve achieved some excellent results for the year in terms of innovations, revenue gains, and cost reductions, but without major legislative changes we cannot overcome the limitations of our inflexible business model,” Donahoe said. “Congress is moving forward with legislation that has the potential to give us greater flexibility and put us back on a firm financial footing

Some Republican establishment operatives and their big donors want former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney to run again in 2016--but they won´t go on record with their comments. An anonymous establishment operative told left-wing BuzzFeed that the 2016 GOP field, which is considered as strong as 2012´s was weak, has "gotten so bad" from the establishment´s point of view that donors are "looking back fondly on the good old days of 2012." “You know what a lot of them say to me? I think we need Mitt back," the anonymous source told the liberal outlet. A recent poll of 2016 presidential primary voters

WASHINGTON -- President Barack Obama is getting some time in front of the cameras before sitting down to watch the Super Bowl. He´s doing a live interview from the White House with Bill O´Reilly about two hours before kickoff, during the Fox pregame show. The interview comes less than a week after Obama´s State of the Union address, in which he pledged to act to help the middle class if Congress won´t. Obama declined during a recent CNN interview to choose between the Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks in the title game, saying he didn´t want to offend either city. The White House

It is the question that has been dominating Washington dinner parties for weeks – could the once-golden First Couple of the United States really be heading for the rocks? If rumours are to be believed, the 21-year marriage of Barack and Michelle Obama has been racked by screaming rows, allegations of infidelity and a string of jealous fights. While the White House has refused to comment on the reports there has been a distinct frostiness in the air between the couple in recent months. According to a report in the National Enquirer--which plastered ‘Obama Divorce Bombshell!’ across its front page--the

I announced this past week that I will be retiring after having the honor of serving my Los Angeles constituents in Congress for 40 years. Immediately, speculation began that I am leaving because I am frustrated with a broken institution. But the exact opposite is true: I am leaving Congress with my conviction intact that the legislative branch can be a powerful force for good. Of course there are aspects of the current Congress that I abhor. This past week, every Republican on the Energy and Commerce Committee, where I have served most of my career, voted to limitthe Environmental Protection

World peace? No problem for Tim Tebow. Turns out the Patriots did themselves and Tebow a huge favor by releasing him from his contract before the season. Tebow has cashed in on his #NoContract status with a pair of 30-second commercials for T-Mobile set to air during the Super Bowl. If this one is any indication, the rest of the field will be fighting for second place in the "Best in Show" category. The ad is both creative, funny and incredibly well-produced. Enjoy this slice of Super Bowl ad heaven and God bless.

At a recent forum at the University of Michigan, MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry explained to her audience that white people will never understand why things are racist, because they lack an innate “racial trigger,” that instantly tells them when to be outraged. Harris-Perry, on the other hand, has a very finely-tuned racial trigger. “I know that this moment is racist because it trips my racial trigger, because it makes me feel nauseous,” she said, according to The Michigan Daily. “I’m not generally angry, but you just made me mad.” While lamenting that her ‘white allies’ would never be fully able to understand

Former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin issued a backhanded compliment to Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan on Friday, commending her most recent column while at the same time faulting her for taking so long to come around. "Great article, Peggy, but where the heck were you when I and other commonsense conservatives were sounding the warning bell in ´08?" Palin wrote. "You joined the ´cool kids´ in mocking and condescendingly criticizing -- ultimately demanding that we ´sit down and shut up.´ Better late than never, though, Peggy and your ilk, because, meanwhile back in America..." Palin was presumably referring to Noonan´s
