The Emerging Offer
National Review Online, by Robert Costa

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 10/4/2013 5:47:32 PM

It hasn’t been announced, and you won’t hear about it today, but the final volley of the fiscal impasse, at least for House Republicans, is already being brokered. And according to my top sources — both members and senior aides — it won’t end with a clean CR, or with a sprawling, 2011-style budget agreement. It’ll end with an offer — a relatively modest mid-October offer that concurrently connects a debt-limit extension, government funding, and a small, but strategically designed menu of conservative demands. At least that was the word late Thursday, when the leadership and groups of Republicans huddled. There

Sounds like the can is being kicked down the road once again.
Unfortunately the 0bama regime and MSM will proclaim victory like they did with the Syria debacle.

They´re too stupid to realize this time it´s different. We have a lot more wind in our sails despite the efforts of their press lackeys. Going overboard with the memorials and Dingy Harry´s idiotic remarks made this an entirely different game.

I don´t think Boehner is caving, in fact I think he has our Marxist Pres and his party on the run. He will have to give Obama some face saving out of his predicament. We shall see but Rush says Obama is down 4 points in a major poll and nothing Obama does is working..

The politicians on both sides of the aisle figure we´re all worn out with the consequences of the so-called "shut down" That we´ll welcome this "compromise." After all, that´s what the LSM has been telling us we want for weeks. What they really hope is that this worn-outed-ness will carry forward for a couple of weeks and we´ll just roll over for the debt ceiling increase.

Not this conservative.

#5 - any face saving would be for American politicians; the senate and Otard have proved they don´t qualify by their actions. The House doesn´t have to and shouldn´t offer any more funding bills than they have until the Senate and WH accept. Something that seems to be lost in the analysis of the libtard/MSM message is that´s how the government has mostly been funded until the last 5 years. And the house has the purse strings. If the senate and WH want to shutdown the gov until they get their way, let it stay shut down. And educate your friends, neighbors and any strangers who display ignorance about how this works and who is shutting down the federal gov.

Folks, please do not accept any media reporting as fact. I work in the media, and I can tell you the folks in the newsrooms have liberal agendas.

Conservatives are holding strong, and are looking good, relative to the crybaby liberals.

What, do the conservatives get to chose what color chains they will be wearing? How many stones can be thrown at them? What table will they be seated at or do they have to stand outside the doors of congress while their "betters" put the finishing touches on the slaughter of a once grand lady, Liberty?

According to Nielsen TV data through mid-January, the average age of Fox News viewers is 68-years-old. In Frank Rich´s New York Magazine article, ´Stop Beating a Dead Fox´ he calls Fox News a politically conservative ´retirement community´ that´s losing young viewers at a faster rate than it´s competitors. The average viewers at MSNBC and CNN are 60, and the average is 62-64 for the broadcast networks. Not only are Fox News viewers old, they´re almost all white. Rich points out that only 1.1 per cent of Fox News viewers are black. That´s a far lower number than other news networks. MSNCB has a 25

Fox News host Bill O´Reilly tackled Barack Obama on his affordable healthcare act and the 2012 Benghazi attack in a tense Super Bowl Sunday interview today. In the network´s annual live pre-game show, President Obama was forced to defend himself against a barrage of Republican criticism. During a tense 15-minute interview, Obama hit back at O´Reilly, saying the Fox News network was to blame for promoting scandals. As he was questioned about Obamacare, the Benghazi raid and accusations that the IRS targeted right-wing groups like the Tea Party, the President took a shot at Fox. ´These kinds of things keep on surfacing in part

How ObamaCare Misreads America
Wall Street Journal, by Michael Barone    Original Article

People learn from their mistakes. Or they can—and should. Which is the reason we should try to learn from the revelations of mistakes about health care and health insurance since the passage of ObamaCare. The evidence is not all in. But it seems that Americans are not behaving as ObamaCare´s architects—and many critics—expected. Start with the assumption that just about everyone wants health insurance. You can easily find polls that support this proposition. ObamaCare architects assumed that if you offered health insurance with subsidies for those with relatively modest incomes, those currently uninsured would flock to apply.

Israel: The Innovative Nation

It has long been obvious that Israel punches far above its weight in contributions to innovations in science, research, and general culture. For some time, Tel Aviv and its surroundings have been second only to Silicon Valley in scientific and technological developments. Now the country´s ambition is to become a major, and possibly the leading, cyber-nation in the world. The abundant enemies of Israel readily swallow the Palestinian narrative of unique victimhood and eagerly publicize illustrations of the bigoted companies, organization, and academic units engaged in or proposing boycott of the State of Israel. The courageous action of Scarlett Johansson has

In his recent State of the Union address, President Obama made it clear that any attempt by a bipartisan majority in Congress to pass new sanctions legislation on Iran would be promptly vetoed. As the president said, "For the sake of our national security, we must give diplomacy a chance to succeed." The president has seemingly determined that the Iranian theocratic regime is trustworthy, and perhaps a potential ally for us in the Middle East, even though Iran: 1) is technically at war with the U.S.; 2) has a long history of lying in its diplomacy; 3) continues to be the

Her story is the stuff Hollywood films are made of. She is a severely disabled woman with an inspiring story and the singer of a sweet song entitled "Alone and Yet Not Alone," a piece about the person who stood by her side and helped with her struggles. The song was recently nominated for an Academy Award. The singer is Joni Earekson Tada, who was left a quadriplegic at age 17 after a diving accident crippled her for life. She can´t even use her hands. But despite her disability, she became an artist, an author, and a speaker. A strong and powerful

During the 1956 presidential campaign, an enthusiastic supporter called out to the Democratic candidate, Adlai Stevenson: "Senator, you have the vote of every thinking person. Stevenson wistfully called back: "That´s not enough, madam, we need a majority!" Once known as the "silent majority," now as the nation´s "low-information voters," these citizens perform their civic duty on election day. But they have no real clue for whom or what they are voting. Yes, when it comes to their occupational callings, investment, or sport picks, they may be highly rational. It´s just politics and public affairs that hold no interest for them. It

The Limitations of Capitalism

Dear Reader (Including the growing number of you who don’t want this “news”letter to be a safe place where you can share things), Here’s something I don’t say everyday: Capitalism ain’t all that. Don’t get me wrong. I’m still the artist behind the spoken-word album, Capitalism Is My Bag, Baby. But here’s the problem. Because most people on the right love and respect capitalism and pretty much everyone on the right feels the very real need to defend capitalism from the Occupiers, technocrats, sans-culottes, nudgers, equalizers, faux pragmatists, and other members of the Social Justice League, we don’t spend enough time focusing

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

On Wednesday, Mitch McConnell told Fox News´ Megyn Kelly that the Obama administration is "initiating a new rule through the Treasury Department in the IRS to quiet the voices of outside groups." According to McConnell, the new rule would redefine what groups like the Tea Party could advocate, during a political campaign "to silence the voices of their critics going into this important fall election by using the Treasury Department regulations." This Obama strategy apparently grew out of one of the many lies both IRS witnesses and Democratic members of the Congressional Oversight Committee used to explain away delays in granting

On his nightly radio show the evening of the State of the Union address, conservative host Mark Levin, author of The Liberty Amendments, instructed the House of Representatives on how to confront President Obama’s declaration that he would be using further executive orders and other means to get around Congress when the legislative body fails to enact the type of legislation he desires. Levin said: The House of Representatives should, post-haste, pass a simple but blunt resolution, as follows: Whereas the President of the United States has exerted executive powers not granted to him under the United States Constitution, the United States House



Obama and Executive Orders

Barack Obama announced in his 2014 State of the Union Address that he intends to bypass Congress "whenever and wherever" to achieve his extreme left-wing goals. Evidently, Obama intends to govern by executive orders (EO´s). EO´s are usually defined as directives that either implement or interpret a federal law, a constitutional provision, or a treaty. Obama has threatened to issue executive orders to make policy, a different use of them. A recent Washington Post/ABC News poll (1/20-23/14) found that 52% of the public approve of a president´s use of EO´s, while 46% oppose. Opinions about EO´s are highly dependent on partisanship. Sixty-nine percent

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

President Barack Obama sat down with Fox News anchor Bill O’Reilly for a pre-Super Bowl interview, a reprise of the Q&A the two did before the 2011 game, and Obama’s sixth straight pre-Super Bowl interview. O’Reilly grilled Obama on why Kathleen Sebelius had not been fired, noting that he as a taxpayer was paying her salary, and also asked if Obama thought the “If you like your plan you can keep your plan” claim was his “biggest mistake?” Obama responded to both queries by arguing that the implementation of the Affordable Care Act was an ongoing process, and he was committed to

President Barack Obama again denied any wrongdoing by the IRS over their targeting of conservative tea party groups, telling Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly there was “not even a smidgen of corruption” in the way the tax enforcer processed tea partiers’ 501(c)4 paperwork. (Snip) “So you’re saying there was no corruption there at all?” O’Reilly asked. “Absolutely not,” the president replied. “There were some bone-headed decisions out of a local office.” “But no mass corruption?” O’Reilly persisted. “Not even mass corruption,” a visibly-annoyed Obama replied. “Not even a smidgen of corruption.” It’s a far cry from Obama’s May 2013 statement called the targeting “outrageous.”

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.

Coca-Cola´s Super Bowl ad has sparked both outrage and kudos on Twitter and Facebook. The ad, entitled "America the Beautiful," features the patriotic song sung in eight languages. The ad shows people of different ethnicities. The ad also shows two dads rollerskating with their daughter. This was the first Super Bowl ad to feature a gay family, according to GLAAD, a lesbian gay, bisexual and transgender media advocacy organization. The inclusion of different languages sparked comments on Coca-Cola´s Facebook page calling the ad a disgrace and unpatriotic. "Speak English or go home," said one commenter on the page.

We´ve had the Gaymmys; we´ve had Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson suspended for expressing unfavorable comments about anal intercourse; HBO has a new series, Looking about three gay men looking for love. It seems as though just about every television show, whether comedy or drama now has a gay character as a regular. It´s not surprising that homosexuality has become mainstream in our culture because nearly everyone has a relative or friend who is gay and we have been deeply influenced by those words of Harvey Fierstein who said, "I just want to be loved.

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.

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..."
