The Slow, Painful
Education of Barack Obama

PJ Media, by Bryan Preston

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/9/2013 3:44:02 PM

George Will wryly notes that our young president is benefiting from his lengthy spell of on-the-job training. Too bad the nation has to suffer through it. “The education of this president is a protracted and often amusing process . . . as he continues to alight upon the obvious with a sense of profound and original discovery,” Will said. “The president is saying, ‘the trouble with big government is it’s so darn big.’ And like a lot of other big organisms — dinosaurs spring to mind — it has a simple nervous system, it’s sclerotic, it’s governed by inertia, and

Comments:
He says: (0bama) is also a stubborn, egotistical, dishonest man. He left out evil and narcissistic.

Spare us, Bryan. We already know this president is a slow learner.

Communism rots the brain. Pass it along.

Many of us were right about Obama from the start. Inexperience, bad policies and incompetence are a bad mixture. We never were racists. Obama is no Jackie Robinson. Jackie Robinson could play the game.

Why should we lament the slow "education" of a tyrant?

What are hoping he will learn...how to be a more effective dictator?

Many will die of Obamacare.

Many more will die in the coming revolution.

My family spent many years jumping through hoops to become legal immigrants (and now citizens)in the land of the FREE.

I´m ready to fight about it.

Commies don´t DO debate and discussion.

America is worth saving....by any means necessary !!!

The riots will start in the big cities first.

By the time they get down here to Texas we will be ready.

I´m sick of waiting and watching while our imperial Preezy absconds with more dictatorial power every day.

Obama is like a female chicken. Every time he lays a egg, he acts surprised about the whole thing, making a big clucking announcement.

Journalists’ guide to Islam called
cave-in to political correctness
Fox News, by Perry Chiaramonte    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/11/2014 5:23:37 PM     Post Reply
A "how-to" guide published by a prominent journalism school to help reporters covering Islam-related issues is under fire from critics who say it sacrifices the First Amendment to political correctness. "Islam for Journalists,” an online guide from Washington State University, says coverage of the Muslim world can be fair, yet inoffensive without compromising journalistic principles. Yet it pointedly condemns publication of images of Muhammed, an act which is forbidden by the Koran, and seems to equate it with violence carried out in the name of Islam. “Across the Muslim world extremists are wielding their swords with grisly effect, but the pen…can

Harry Reid blocks Republican request

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., scheduled a Friday session that won´t have any votes, rejecting Republican and Democratic requests that he allow a vote on a bill that would allow rape kits to be processed more quickly. “Debbie Smith is an extraordinary woman and an effective advocate," Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., told the Washington Examiner. "She´s personally asked me, John Cornyn and others to pass this critically important legislation that bears her name, and it´s deeply disappointing that the majority leader is blocking it from reaching the president´s desk.

President Obama on Friday revisited the conspiracy theory over his birth certificate and whether he was born in the U.S., calling the issue “crazy stuff.” Obama brought up his birth certificate during a speech at the National Action Network’s annual conference in New York, as he hammered more stringent voter ID laws that force citizens to provide more documentation before getting access to the ballot box. “I know where my birth certificate is but a lot of people don’t,” said Obama, prompting laughter from the audience. “I think its up on a website somewhere,” he added. “You remember that,” he

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama paid $98,169 in taxes on $481,098 income last year, according to tax returns the White House released Friday. They paid an effective federal income tax rate of 20.4 percent. The couple´s 2013 federal income tax return was posted on the White House website four days before the tax filing deadline. The 42-page document shows the Obamas reported donating $59,251 to 32 charities. That works out to 12.3 percent of their adjusted gross income. Their largest charitable gift, $8,751, went to the Fisher House Foundation, which supports military families. The Obamas also released their

Joining MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell on Friday, senior White House advisor Valerie Jarrett was asked if the resignation of Health and Human Services Sec. Kathleen Sebelius signaled that the implementation of the Affordable Care Act would be smooth going forward. Jarrett said that neither she nor the president could guarantee that the implementation of the ACA would be perfect, but that it was an important task to improve Americans’ access to health insurance. “Going forward, do you think your past all of the bumps on health care on the rollout and that from now going forward you can change the dynamic?”

Recently elected Democratic Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe is warning that global warming could raise sea levels high enough to flood the Hampton Roads region, home to the world´s largest naval base, without immediate and “smart decisions.” Addressing an environmental summit this week at the Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, Va., McAuliffe embraced climate change, blamed humans for causing it, and said action is needed now to protect Virginia´s coast from rising ocean levels that will result from global warming. “The first big decision of course is to accept that climate change is real,” he told the group. “I happen to believe in

That ‘War on Fox’ Guy Is Not Actually
Running for Congress as a Democrat

Cable news and the Internet have many things in common, one of which is that they are both populated by lots of shameless attention-seekers. Perhaps it’s time to count the supposed Democratic House “candidate” Mike Dickinson — he of “war on Fox News” fame — as one of them? Dickinson has made a bit of a name for himself this year by claiming that, if elected to Eric Cantor‘s House seat, he will wage war on the NRA, the tea party, and Fox News. Since then, he’s been in multiple Twitter wars and has appeared on Fox for confrontations with

CIA’s use of harsh interrogation went

WASHINGTON -- A still-secret Senate Intelligence Committee report calls into question the legal foundation of the CIA’s use of waterboarding and other harsh interrogation techniques on suspected terrorists, a finding that challenges the key defense on which the agency and the Bush administration relied in arguing that the methods didn’t constitute torture. The report also found that the spy agency failed to keep an accurate account of the number of individuals it held, and that it issued erroneous claims about how many it detained and subjected to the controversial interrogation methods. The CIA has said that about 30 detainees underwent

Silicon Valley liberals spent millions of dollars funding President Obama’s re-election and have been some of the left’s most ardent supporters of progressive causes. And they are just getting started. (Snip) On the heels of calling for Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich to resign for the liberal sin of disagreeing with their view of gay marriage comes a campaign to pressure Dropbox to drop former Secretary of State Condi Rice from their board. Rice’s sin, in Silicon Valley’s eyes, is serving as America’s Secretary of State and National Security Advisor to a Republican president. For decades, the liberal media eviscerated the

What do you get when the state of Oregon, Planned Parenthood, and pharmaceutical companies that produce contraceptives get in bed together? The Seaside Adolescent Sexuality Conference (ASC). Marketed under the pretense of trying to prevent youth pregnancy and STD transmission, the conference, which took place earlier this week, is actually a platform for promoting a disturbing sexual agenda that has little to do with either. (Snip) Case in point, the following graphic comes from a pamphlet distributed at the conference by the Cascade AIDS project, encouraging teens (and younger kids) to have phone sex, take a bath together, or to

Angry parents, at least one student suspended and -- in one school district -- children denied ice cream. Such has been the roll-out of Common Core testing in New York, the first state to implement the test component of the controversial nationalized educational standard. Seirra Olivero, a 13-year-old student at Orange-Ulster BOCES, claims she was suspended from school last week after telling classmates they could opt out of taking the Common Core English test -- a decision few students and parents in the area knew was possible, according to the girl´s mother. The eighth-grader was suspended for two days for

GENEVA — A United Nations human rights expert says the name of the Washington Redskins football team is a "hurtful reminder" of the mistreatment of Native Americans, but stopped short of joining in calls for the team´s owner to change the name. Last month, team owner Dan Snyder said he was creating a foundation to assist American Indian tribes but gave no indication he had plans to change the name, which he says honors Native Americans. On Friday, James Anaya — a UN expert on indigenous people´s rights — urged Snyder to "consider that the term ´redskin´ for many is

Attorney General Eric Holder strayed from prepared remarks to slam the way he was “treated” by a House committee the day before, calling it evidence of “ugly and divisive” civil rights challenges facing him and President Barack Obama. Speaking to the Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network at its annual convention in New York on Wednesday, Holder talked about the state of civil rights today and brought up a House committee hearing Tuesday that grew contentious, according to video from Mediaite and reports from outlets including Capital New York. “The last five years have been defined by significant strides and

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

Barack Obama got quite the handful on Thursday, April 10, but it was all for a good cause! As the President of the United States was boarding Air Force One with his wife Michelle Obama, a gust of wind blew up her skirt. Barack quickly stepped in and grabbed the First Lady´s billowing skirt to help her avoid a wardrobe malfunction and embarrassing Marilyn Monroe moment. Earlier in the week, another famous lady on the global stage suffered a similar snafu, but no one was around to help her -- not even her prince!

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or

Although the news media and Hollywood relish telling stories about horrific crimes and serial killers, they are strangely silent about Dr. Kermit Gosnell, an abortionist who killed living, viable babies by snipping their spinal cords with scissors, and who is “America’s most prolific serial killer,” said actor Kevin Sorbo and his wife Sam Jenkins in a video to promote funding for a movie about Gosnell. “Kermit Gosnell is America’s most prolific serial killer,” says Kevin Sorbo, who starred in the TV series Hercules: The Legendary Journeys. “For more than three decades he was an abortion doctor in Philadelphia, where he

Big Government: As students flood Twitter with images of inedible slop, it´s clear that Michelle Obama´s government school lunch revamp is a costly failure. It´s time to get the feds out of kids´ lunch boxes. The $12 billion federal student lunch program, which serves 30.7 million kids, is losing participants fast — more than a million just last year, according to a recent Government Accountability Office report. The reason: the first lady´s Healthy Hunger-free Kids Act, an act that has accomplished exactly the opposite of what it claimed it would — leaving hungry, angry, disgusted kids and dumpsters full of wasted

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle.

Nearly a year into the IRS scandal, we still don´t know exactly what happened—though we are finally getting an inkling. That´s thanks to the letter House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp sent this week to the Justice Department recommending a criminal probe of Lois Lerner. The average citizen might be dizzied by the torrent of confusing terms—BOLO lists, Tigta, 501(c)(4)—and the array of accusations that have made up this IRS investigation. Mr. Camp´s letter takes a step back to remind us why this matters, even as it provides compelling new information that goes to motive and method—and clarifies some of
