Obama leaves the
bubble and hits the road

AUBURN, N.Y. -- It´s the curse - or maybe the blessing - of living in a place that doesn´t make or break presidential elections: The president and those running for the job just don´t come around very often. So President Barack Obama´s two-day bus tour this week through swaths of western and central New York, a state that reliably backs Democrats in presidential elections, set the region abuzz. Cheering crowds and curious onlookers lined the streets hoping for a glimpse of the president through the tinted windows of his armored bus. Residents gathered at local restaurants and other hot spots on the

" the locals who gathered around town were there to see the spectacle: the lengthy motorcade, the imposing Secret Service detail and "certainly the way they come in and just take over your city," Boyer said."

Obviously the 47% who don´t pay any taxes.

Has he even been back to Washington after the latest vacation? On the other hand, does his not being in Washington have a down side?

Was missing flight MH370 jet brought down
by a shoe bomber? British terrorist convicted
of plotting similar attack says he gave explosive

Daily Mail (U.K.), by Staff    Original Article

A British man convicted of plotting an Al-Qaeda plane bombing told a New York court yesterday about a separate 2001 plan for a Malaysian pilot to blast his way into a jet´s cockpit. Saajid Badat, who was sentenced in 2005 to 13 years in jail as a co-conspirator in a notorious December 2001 plot to bomb US airliners, has testified about the Malaysian plan before. But his description of the apparently abandoned plot has a new resonance as investigators probe the fate of a Malaysia Airlines flight that disappeared on Saturday with 239 people on board. There has been no previous suggestion that

A rule of electoral politics is that when a Democratic wave is building, the media broadcast it like a foregone conclusion. When a Republican wave is building, Beltway pundits are the last to admit it. After Tuesday´s GOP win in a Florida special House election, even the press corps now agrees that Republicans are poised for major gains in November, assuming the GOP has the wit to exploit it. Democrats are spinning the defeat as no big deal, but no one outside the MSNBC mind-meld believes that. Democrats got their preferred candidate in Alex Sink, who had barely lost the governor´s

   

 

  


 
Republican Roulette

At the conclave of conservative activists in Washington last weekend, Paul Ryan dropped a metaphor on the Republican Party´s clan feud: "I´m Irish. That´s my idea of a family reunion." As someone who has spent a lifetime among the Irish, let me add that there are Irish feuds . . . and there are Irish feuds. Some get settled over the casket of the deceased. "Jimmy, you know I loved you when you were alive. God rest." Let me offer an alternative metaphor. The nonstop appearances before the CPAC conference of presidential candidates past and present makes the Republican Party look like

Obama Just Guaranteed
ObamaCare´s Failure
Investor´s Business Daily, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 3/12/2014 7:29:39 PM     Post Reply
Death Blow: Almost two years ago, President Obama´s solicitor general told the Supreme Court that without the individual mandate, ObamaCare would fail. But after winning that victory, the administration itself has effectively killed the mandate. In his oral arguments before the court, Donald Verrilli made it abundantly clear that, without the individual mandate, ObamaCare would "make matters worse, not better." As he told the justices, the "guaranteed issue" and "community rating" regulations at the heart of ObamaCare won´t work if you let the young and healthy choose not to buy insurance. States that tried it, he explained, found these regulations to be "highly

Campaign Finance: Amid growing signs of corruption at the heart of the Democratic Party´s political fundraising efforts, the media and Democrats in Congress seem only too happy to ignore the scandal. Jeffrey E. Thompson may not be a household name, but you can bet the Washington businessman is known to Democrats. On Monday, he pleaded guilty to federal conspiracy charges in a case involving fundraising for Democratic Washington Mayor Vincent Gray´s 2010 campaign. So who is Thompson? He has reportedly raised upward of $3 million for Democrats. And he told prosecutors that Hillary Clinton aide Minyon Moore asked him to fund her

The U.S. is at "a constitutional tipping point" and "in the midst of a constitutional crisis." Has President Obama unilaterally overturned the constitutional framework of three branches that is the basis of our unique and successful system of self-government? That question is not just partisan bickering by Republicans and Tea Party activists. It was spoken in all seriousness in testimony before the House Judiciary Committee by a distinguished constitutional law professor who voted for Obama. Jonathan Turley of George Washington University said that the "massive gravitational shift of authority to the executive branch" is unconstitutional and threatens the stability of our separation

RUSH: Back on March the 7th, it was five days ago, as I was deep into show prep, I ran across -- this stuff fascinates me, and I think a factor in explaining it is getting older. I´ve always wanted to be older. When I was a teenager I wanted to be 21. I never have wanted to be my age, because the way I looked at it, the older you got, the freer you got. The older you got, the more independent you became, and, obviously, the more self-reliant, but the more successful you became. It just seemed that

No, Gov. Brownback, Cruz didn´t
violate Reagan´s 11th commandment
American Thinker, by Matthew Vadum    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 3/12/2014 4:49:56 PM     Post Reply
Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback is the latest Republican to twist Ronald Reagan´s "Eleventh Commandment" to suit his purposes by falsely accusing Sen. Ted Cruz of violating it. According to Brownback, the junior senator from Texas is a big meanie for pointing out the objective fact that Bob Dole´s namby-pamby 1996 bid for the presidency was disastrous. The congenitally outraged Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) agrees with Brownback and is demanding that Cruz apologize. But what did Cruz actually say to ignite such passions? “You want to lose elections? Stand for nothing,” Cruz said last week at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in the

A terror threat was made against the Beijing Capital International Airport days prior to the abrupt disappearance of the Beijing-bound Malaysia Airlines flight MH370. China Airlines has revealed they had alerted the authorities at the Civil Aviation Administration of China regarding the terror threat which was made on 4 March by an unknown man. The airline operator´s chief representative in Beijing, Peng Rong-min, said the unidentified man made the phone call threatening that a terrorist strike would take place at the Beijing airport. The spokesperson added that they had informed the authorities concerned immediately after the call, the China Post reports. The anonymous

Russia could launch a ´full scale´ invasion that would see troops overrun Ukraine in hours, a senior security official warned today. The secretary of Ukraine´s National Security and National Defence Committee Andriy Parubiy claimed Russia has 80,000 troops, 280 tanks and 170 aircraft massed on the border ready to invade. ´They are adding to this military potential,´ he said. ´We have a critical situation on the entire southeastern border. The Russian army is only two to three hours from Kiev.´ Ukraine´s defences would be incapable in the face of a Russian invasion, he said. It comes as pictures have emerged of heavy Russian armoured

MSNBC´s Ronan Farrow aired a report from Kenya on Wednesday, pointing out that even though President Obama was suffering some of his lowest approval ratings ever in America, he was still very popular in his father´s homeland. "We´ve heard about President Obama´s poll numbers here in the United States, including those pretty dim assessments of his handling of the rest of the world," Farrow began. "But out in the wide world, there is one place he can always call home — if they have anything to do with it." Farrow featured several live interviews with Kenyans who supported the president

If he had a sense of humor, he’d sign the bills and then ignore them. Just like he did with ObamaCare. Forcing him to threaten a veto was, of course, the whole point of these bills in the first place.

On “The O’Reilly Factor” on Tuesday night, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer criticized President Barack Obama for his foreign policy but downplayed the effects of Obama’s interview with Zach Galifianakis in a Funny or Die video on Russian President Vladimir Putin of Obama. “I think it’s a kind of arrogance,” Krauthammer said. “He thinks he has a good foreign policy.

In an online comedy bit with comedian Zach Galifianakis, Pres. Obama asks what could be considered a very serious question.

St. Petersburg, Florida- In the first major ballot box test of 2014, the GOP won. Republican David Jolly edged out Democrat Alex Sink to win Tuesday´s special election in Florida´s 13th Congressional District. Jolly will fill out the term of his former boss, Republican Rep. Bill Young, who died in October. Young, first elected to Congress in 1970, was the longest-serving Republican in the House. With national Republicans framing the race as a referendum on Obamacare and a massive infusion of outside ad money to try to influence the outcome, pundits have looked to the Florida race as a bellwether

The Oregon owners of a 22-pound housecat who trapped them in their bedroom after attacking their baby say they´re not giving up on their pet and are getting it medical attention and therapy. Two days after police arrived to subdue the 4-year-old Himalayan cat, owner Lee Palmer of Portland said he´s taking the feline to a veterinarian. A pet psychologist also is due at the house to see the cat, named Lux. "We´re not getting rid of him right now," Palmer said. "He´s been part of our family for a long time."

You have probably seen all of the ridiculous speculating about the GOP nomination in 2016. This is still speculating, but my sincere hope is you don’t think it’s ridiculous too. Kentucky Senator Rand Paul is laying the foundation for his presidential bid in concrete and steel. First, forget about Jeb Bush unless you want to hand Hillary eight years in the White House. The latest Rasmussen poll shows her leading Jeb in a general election 47 percent to 33. His name is Bush and to the general public the specifics of how smart he is doesn’t matter one iota. Then there’s Ted Cruz,

Beyoncé and Jennifer Garner are among the prominent women taking a stand against the term "bossy" and what it stands for in regards to female empowerment. "Being labeled something matters," Garner, 34, says in a promotional video for the campaign. The effort against discouraging girls from leadership is a joint push from the Girl Scouts of America and the Lifetime network. The PSA also includes participation from Jane Lynch, Condoleezza Rice, Diane von Furstenberg, Secretary of Education Arne Duncan and "Lean In" author Sheryl Sandberg.

How would you feel if a police officer you knew for 20 years told you that if an order were issued to confiscate your guns, he wouldn’t hesitate to “kick your door in”? This was the precisely the experience Connecticut resident, Navy veteran and former firefighter John Cinque had after commenting on his state’s 2013 violation of the Second Amendment. The law in question criminalizes the sale of magazines holding more than 10 rounds and also certain semi-automatic rifles, and mandates that all grandfathered weapons and magazines must be registered with the state.

A report released Tuesday by the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform asserted that ex-IRS official Lois Lerner waived her Fifth Amendment rights. Lerner continues to stonewall California Rep. Darrell Issa’s committee, pleading the Fifth again in a divisive Oversight hearing last Wednesday convened to get to the bottom of the IRS’ improper targeting of conservative groups between 2010 and 2012. Oversight member Rep. Jim Jordan told The Daily Caller that the committee is “moving” toward holding Lerner in contempt of Congress to compel her to testify. “I think that’s where we’re moving,” Jordan said. “I think that’s where this is headed.”

"I just do want to say that right after I turned 17 and got my New Jersey driver´s license, one of the earliest places I drove was a trip — the only trip I have ever taken was to Hawaii," he said on the floor at about 3:00 a.m. "You didn´t drive to Hawaii," Sen.

Republican David Jolly won the special election to fill the House seat left vacant by the death of his former boss, Rep. C.W. Bill Young (R-Fla.). With nearly all of the votes counted Tuesday night, Jolly had 48.5 percent of the vote to Alex Sink’s 46.7 percent. Libertarian Lucas Overby had 4.8 percent. Sink lost the 2010 governor’s race to Rick Scott. The Democratic Party sunk extensive ad funding into the congressional battle, and DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) tried to paint the loss as a positive. “Republican special interest groups poured in millions to hold onto a Republican

Madison — Police arrested six people believed to be involved in what they´re calling one of the most brutal crimes in recent memory. Madison police say three men planned a home invasion, but broke into the wrong home on Quincy Avenue on the north side around 6 a.m. on February 23. Police say the suspects were aware it was not the intended home, but they proceeded to violently attack the two victims who had been sleeping. The suspects are accused of repeatedly sexually assaulting the woman who was six months pregnant. "I can tell you that in my 27-plus years of
