Going to War with the Blind
General of Benghazi (An Apology)

PJ Media, by Roger L. Simon

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 9/9/2013 4:42:17 AM

Okay. I’m an idiot. What was I thinking? I apologize. Any administration that could have the temerity to send the nauseating serial Benghazi prevaricator Susan Rice, on the anniversary of that event yet, to explain to Congress why our representatives should approve a strike on Syria not only should NOT get the aforesaid approval, they should be forbidden approval for anything more significant than the choice of wallpaper in the White House rest rooms — and even that I’m not so sure. In earlier columns, I supported an attack on Syria because I abhor Bashar Assad and his (or his minions’) use

Mr. Simon, nice you eventually came to what sense you have remaining. The entire scenario makes one nauseous if you actually think it thru. How can anything be ignored or overlooked? He is what he is and he is NOT to be trusted. He´s proven that time and again the past five years. Even though there are atrocities in Syria, they can never be set right given the CIC in charge at this time. No serviceman deserves to wonder if they will be killed by the men on the battlefield before being done in by their CIC. Facts are facts... this guy will now never be relevant on anything of importance.

BOR, take note and now attempt to backtrack your stand on this.

How could he just now be "getting it"? This apology should be accompanied by a doctor´s appointment.

The Fall of France
Newsweek, by Janine di Giovanni    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 1/5/2014 5:59:23 AM     Post Reply
It’s a stretch, but what is happening today in France is being compared to the revocation of 1685. In that year, Louis XIV, the Sun King who built the Palace of Versailles, revoked the Edict of Nantes, which had protected French Protestants – the Huguenots. Trying to unite his kingdom by a common religion, the king closed churches and persecuted the Huguenots. As a result, nearly 700,000 of them fled France, seeking asylum in England, Sweden, Switzerland, South Africa and other countries. The Huguenots, nearly a million strong before 1685, were thought of as the worker bees of France. They left

California Gun Law Paves
the Way for Confiscation

SACRAMENTO -- Gun registration had always seemed like the “line in the sand” — a proposal that would so offend the nation’s gun-rights advocates that they would bring out their full political muscle to stop it. Yet a California law mandating government record-keeping for all new long-gun purchases goes into effect on Jan. 1 and few people even seem to know about it. This year, gun owners were relieved that Gov. Jerry Brown vetoed the toughest gun-control measures that came to his desk, including one that would have banned sales of almost all semi-automatic rifles. But back in 2011, after

50 Years Later, War on
Poverty Is a Mixed Bag
New York Times, by Annie Lowry    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 1/5/2014 5:51:50 AM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON — To many Americans, the war on poverty declared 50 years ago by President Lyndon B. Johnson has largely failed. The poverty rate has fallen only to 15 percent from 19 percent in two generations, and 46 million Americans live in households where the government considers their income scarcely adequate.(Snip)But conservatives, like Representative Paul D. Ryan of Wisconsin, have looked at the poverty statistics more skeptically, contending that the government has misspent its safety-net money and needs to focus less on support and more on economic and job opportunities.




Snowden snow job

President Obama is pushing back against attempts to rein in the National Security Agency’s electronic intelligence collections, and well he should as commander-in-chief. After one federal judge ruled that the NSA’s collection of so-called telephone metadata was likely unconstitutional even under a special intelligence court’s authority, the administration sought permission from the special court for new action and petitioned to appeal the judge’s hyperventilations. Far more grounded was another court ruling, this one upholding metadata collection. (Snip)Snowden knowingly and brazenly stole vast troves of information that were kept secret for a reason. Much of what he has released has seemed

Over the past four years, the unemployment rate has dropped from a high of 10% in October 2009 to 7% this past November. The fact remains, however, that an unemployment rate of 7% is much too high, and that even this troubling rate masks the true weakness of the labor market. A quick review of the most recent labor-market data tells the story. A broader measure of unemployment includes both workers who want full-time jobs but have to settle for part-time work and workers who are marginally attached to the labor force. Defined this way, the unemployment rate in November was

Global warmists trapped in Antarctic

You may have heard about the Russian ship trapped in Antarctic ice. Various ice-breakers from other nations have attempted to free it, but to no avail. The ship is encased in tons of floating sea ice. What many in the mainstream media have failed to mention is that the ship was attempting to study global warming at the South Pole. Along for the ride were some high-roller eco-tourists wanting to see some glaciers dramatically breaking off and falling into the sea. After the researchers and tourists were rescued, the ship’s crew stayed behind in the hopes of piloting their ship once it breaks

2014: The Year of Obama´s Reckoning

Two days after Christmas I found myself in a doctor´s office in New Jersey at eight o´clock in the morning. As I sat in the waiting room, a middle-aged woman came in and began a discussion with the receptionist. It seemed that her daughter, who would turn 26 on December 31, was trying to figure out what to do about health insurance. The woman explained that her daughter had been on a policy with a low co-pay and deductible (she didn´t specify what they were) that cost $240 a month. But Obamacare had scuttled that policy and the most affordable

Everyone is aware of the American plan to impose the Muslim Brotherhood on Egypt and any other country that would allow it. The reasons for this American plan were revealed on this stage a half-year ago. Meanwhile, Abdel Sisi’s regime in Egypt is becoming more entrenched, and the Muslim Brotherhood – the Americans’ favorites – has been declared illegal, they and their many organizations having been declared a “terror organization.” They are forbidden to hold demonstrations and gatherings, or distribute fliers, and the police even become involved in the universities in order to suppress the Brotherhood’s activity. One may disagree with Sisi’s




Rep. Steve Stockman of Texas goes it alone in
Republican primary against Sen. John Cornyn

Rep. Steve Stockman — a Republican primary challenger to Sen. John Cornyn of Texas — might be the closest thing in this election year to a middle finger running for the U.S. Senate by itself. “If babies had guns they wouldn’t be aborted,” says a Stockman campaign bumper sticker. “The best gun lubricant around,” read a posting on Stockman’s campaign Twitter feed.(Snip)Also, of the 12 groups listed under “past and present endorsements” on Stockman’s Senate campaign site, as of Friday at least seven had not actually endorsed him for the Senate. Another “endorsement” is attributed to Howard Phillips, a conservative

Michael Weiss starts off with a humdinger of a lead in Politico. It’s hard to pinpoint just when, exactly, Barack Obama’s Syria policy fell apart. Was it in December, when Islamists humiliated U.S.-backed rebels by seizing what limited supplies America had given them? Was it back in September, when Obama telegraphed his reluctance to enforce his own “red line” after the Syrian regime used chemical weapons on its own people? (Snip)The only problem with Weiss’s article is that it has drawn its compass too small. The mayhem is much, much more extensive than Syria. For example, Syria really abuts on

No one has greater respect for investigative journalists than I do, and among that select bunch Barton Gellman of The Washington Post has long been one of the very best: intelligent, relentless, scrupulous, and always ethical.But the latest installment from the "Snowden files" (as the Post´s subhead put it Friday) made me wonder if what we´re experiencing and reading right now is still journalism, investigative or otherwise, or whether it is becoming something very different. I wonder if, after all the disclosures that have already touched off a major reassessment of National Security Agency surveillance by the U.S. government, what

A perfect storm of slow news and cultural provocation elevated Melissa Harris-Perry‘s New Year’s weekend segment, which used Kieran Romney‘s appearance in a Romney family photo as a setup for jokes about diversity, into a full-blown media conflagration.

KAILUA, Hawaii — After a two-week vacation on the windward side of Oahu, ensconced with his family in a private beachfront rental, President Obama prepared on Saturday to return to the chillier clime — both politically and weather-wise — of the nation’s capital. (Snip) Last year, Mr. Obama returned to Washington in the middle of his vacation to deal with a fiscal showdown before flying back to Hawaii. By comparison, this trip was tranquil, if not drowsy.

According to a detailed report, Kim Jong Un fed his Uncle Jang Song Thaek to a pack of hungry dogs, a deviation from the traditional method of execution by firing squad. "Jang was stripped naked and thrown into a cage, along with his five closest aides. Then 120 hounds, starved for three days, were allowed to prey on them until they were completely eaten up. This is called "quan jue", or execution by dogs." The report, appearing in a Chinese controlled newspaper, stated that the "execution" lasted for one hour and was supervised by Kim Jong Un and "300 senior officials."

The author of the widely disputed New York Times article on Benghazi repeatedly posed naked as a Princeton student. Far from the moderate journalist pose he strikes now, David D. Kirkpatrick was a prominent campus progressive and activist. Kirkpatrick was arrested for lewd conduct, advocated for classes on pornography, and even posed for Playgirl. “Kinky” Kirkpatrick had a “rather unusual habit of disrobing for photographers in public places,” reported The Daily Princetonian in January 22, 1990. “I’ve never been afraid to drop trou when it seemed like the right thing to do,” Kirkpatrick said of a Playgirl photo shoot he

North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un sentenced his uncle to be eaten alive by a pack of 120 wild dogs in a savage punishment for treachery, it has been claimed. Jang Song-Thaek, 67, along with five close aides, was stripped naked and thrown into a cage of hounds which had been starved for three days, according to new details emerging from China. The pack of animals spent more than an hour mauling the group in a punishment called ´quan jue´, or execution by dogs, a report in Chinese newspaper Wen Wei Po said.

MARIE HARF, STATE DEPARTMENT: Well, I would fundamentally disagree with it. Just because we don’t have troops on the ground doesn’t mean we don’t have a continuing close partnership with the Iraqi Government. You see that all the time from the assistance we give them.

MSNBC´s Chris Hayes is tired of conservatives snarking about global warming every time it gets cold. During his show Thursday evening, Hayes complained of the "strange bizarre underworld of climate trolls" that came to life when Matt Drudge ironically linked an article on the Drudge Report about cold weather. "Of course, no one ever said that climate change meant it wouldn´t ever be cold," Hayes said defensively, calling the annual tradition "willful stupidity" of conservatives "who delight being on the wrong side of history." Hayes admitted, however, that Drudge had been successful in creating a culture of global warming skepticism. "I mean, Drudge has

She lied on her first day on the job — and got caught. Just hours after being sworn in as the city’s public advocate, Letitia James went on TV to claim that she played a key role in helping expose “the face of poverty in the City of New York” on the ‘front page of The New York Times. James, a former City Council member, said she had appointed a task force to examine conditions at the Auburn homeless shelter in her old Brooklyn district. When those conditions didn’t improve, James said, she acted to publicize the plight of Dasani Coates, a 12-year-old

WASHINGTON — In the year since he stepped down from Congress, Steven C. LaTourette, a Republican from Ohio, has emerged as one of the top generals in the establishment Republicans’ war against the Tea Party. It is a role that has benefited the Main Street Partnership, a corporate-backed advocacy group he runs, and its effort to raise millions of dollars to protect centrist Republicans from Tea Party challengers. It has also helped draw clients to a separate lobbying office Mr. LaTourette and his wife have set up across the street from the Capitol. But this blitz of activity has led to complaints

The mayoral candidate who often calls New York a “tale of two cities” has a personal tale of three names. Most New Yorkers have come to know Bill de Blasio as the Democratic candidate with the affable family, including a teenage son who has been featured in campaign ads. Left unsaid in the candidate’s official biography is that Bill de Blasio is his third legal name.The man who could become the city’s 109th mayor was born Warren Wilhelm Jr. on May 8, 1961, in Manhattan, his birth certificate shows. In 1983, fresh out of New York University, he petitioned a Manhattan judge

The two television networks – ABC and NBC – that covered the 2014 Tournament of Roses parade live on Jan. 1 are not saying why the wedding of two men atop the AIDS Healthcare Foundation’s float was not part of their programming viewed by more than 60 million people around the world. When CNSNews.com asked whether the wedding was covered and, if not, why not, ABC’s press office said there would be no official statement about the event and cited technical issues. NBC did not respond to the questions. ABC ran a news article about the gay wedding on Jan.

The days of fumbling in the dark to replace a light bulb could soon be a thing of the past--or at least a very rare occurrence--thanks to a new innovation. A new style of light bulb that is flatter, more energy efficient and lasts over 22 years is set to go on sale. Philips’ SlimStyle light bulb promises a comparable brightness to a 60W incandescent bulb instantly--with no annoying wait for the bulb to ‘warm up’. The Dutch electronics manufacturer said the improvement to energy efficient light bulbs, which are often criticised for being more expensive and duller than classic
