Russia may answer conventional
attack with nukes

Associated Press, by Staff

Posted By:JoniTx, 12/11/2013 1:46:46 PM

MOSCOW— A Russian Cabinet member says Moscow has reserved the right to use nuclear weapons in response to a conventional strike. Wednesday´s comments by Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin carried by Russian news agencies reflected Moscow´s concern with prospective U.S. weapons. Weapons that have been developed in the U.S. under the so-called "prompt global strike" program would be capable of striking targets anywhere in the world in as little as an hour with deadly precision. Russia, which has lagged far behind in developing such weapons, has described them as destabilizing. Without naming the U.S., Rogozin said that those who "experiment

He can´t mean the US. I thought Obama already capitulated to Putin through Medvedev before the 2012 election. Just Google "obama medvedev microphone".

Listen up !

We are having our own little inter-family struggle here in America right now.

If any foreign power would like to volunteer to bring us all together against a foreign invader....then just go right ahead.

In fact....it may be just what we need.

Bring it.

Scratching my head with all ten fingers. Why? What brought this on? Especially waiting for the deal of the lifetime promised by Barry when the election was to be over.

That would suggest that no partial measures be taken and that any strike should be a decisive one.

Eric Holder strays from planned remarks
Politico, by Tal Kopan    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/10/2014 7:33:24 AM     Post Reply
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

   

 

  


 
U.S. Rep. Bobby Rush faces
ethics inquiry
Chicago Tribune, by Katherine Skiba    Original Article

WASHINGTON — An attorney for Rep. Bobby Rush said Wednesday that the South Side Democrat is cooperating with an inquiry by the Office of Congressional Ethics. Scott E. Thomas, a Washington lawyer, said Rush had retained his firm, Dickstein Shapiro, and “asked that we be cooperative and provide the information requested.” Thomas, a former chairman of the Federal Election Commission, did not disclose the subject of the inquiry. But he did say: “We believe that the circumstances being reviewed do not warrant any ethics sanctions, and we are hopeful that this inquiry will be concluded relatively soon.” At the Office

Two days after stunning new revelations about his role as an FBI informant, the Rev. Al Sharpton proved Wednesday that he can still draw a crowd - and the praise of powerful politicians. Mayor de Blasio hailed the civil rights activist as a “blessing,” and U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder spoke as well, as Sharpton opened a three-day convention of his National Action Network at a midtown hotel. The White House said the new details about Sharpton’s cooperation with the FBI would not change President Obama’s plans to give the keynote speech at the gathering on Friday. “Rev. Sharpton and

Criminal Referral for Lois Lerner

In a major new development in the IRS scandal, House Republicans voted on Wednesday to send a criminal referral to the Department of Justice for former IRS chief Lois Lerner. None of the networks covered the vote, however. The letter sent to Attorney General Eric Holder stated that "findings" from the Ways and Means Committee "suggest that Lerner may have violated multiple criminal statutes." The letter went on to add that "the Committee asks that you pursue this evidence." The networks ignored this letter, however, although CBS and ABC talked about Hillary Clinton´s presidential aspirations. Other developments in the letter

Bush greets Obama at Houston airport

When President Barack Obama arrived in Houston about 3:45 p.m. Wednesday afternoon, former President George H. W. Bush was there to greet him. "When the president comes to your hometown, you show up to meet him," said Bush, who chatted with Obama and the first lady for about five minutes at the foot of the steps next to Air Force One at Bush Intercontinental Airport. Obama greeted about 50 well-wishers behind a barricade and chatted and shook hands for about 10 minutes before leaving for a meeting with about 30 members of the Democratic National Committee at the Museum District

As new details emerged about his four-year stint in the 1980s as a confidential informer for the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Rev. Al Sharpton thought enough of the attention to hold a news conference to address what became front-page fodder for New York tabloids for two days this week. But to use Sharpton-esque language, the revelation was nothing but an elevation. At the annual convention of the organization he founded in 1991, the National Action Network, there was no hint of any discord or doubt. The United States attorney general, Eric H. Holder Jr., and Mayor Bill de Blasio

PORTLAND -- She´s the talk of her school and the entire city. After a speech from Hillary Clinton, a 6-year-old Portland girl asked a question that had everyone in Keller Auditorium on the edge of their seats. The moderator read from a card during a question-and-answer period. The final question: "This is from Zola Demarco, she is 6 years old and she addresses this to H.R. Clinton and she says, ´In 2016, would you prefer to be called Madame President or Mrs. President?´" Watching the footage on an iPad in her kindergarten class Wednesday morning, Zola got a first look

IRS Gave House Oversight Democrats
Info on Targeted Conservative Group
Washington Free Beacon [DC], by CJ Ciaramella    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/9/2014 10:40:59 PM     Post Reply
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) sent tax documents on a targeted conservative group to Democratic staff on the House Oversight Committee, newly released emails show, despite previous denials by ranking Oversight Democrat Elijah Cummings (D., Md.) that such contact had occurred. Emails released by the GOP-led Oversight Committee show Democratic staff requested information from the IRS’ tax-exempt division on True The Vote, a conservative group that monitors polling places for voter fraud. Republicans and conservative activists say the IRS tax-exempt division, led by former official Lois Lerner, targeted dozens of conservative groups because of their politics while ignoring similar progressive

The Treasury Department has raised $2.38 billion after selling a large chunk of its stock in Ally Financial Inc. as part of the government´s ongoing effort to recoup the billions of dollars spent bailing out companies during the 2008 financial crisis. Treasury said Wednesday that it got $25 each for the 95 million shares it sold in an initial public offering. The pricing of the IPO came at the low end of the forecast range of $25 to $28 per share. The sale brought the amount it has recouped from the bailout of Ally to $17.7 billion, slightly more than the

SEATTLE- Amanda Skorjanc was watching videos with her infant son when the lights in her home started to flicker and shake. She looked outside and saw a terrifying sight: a massive mudslide crashing down the hillside, and nearby houses "exploding" from its force. A neighbor´s chimney was barreling toward her door, so Skorjanc gripped her son tightly and turned away. "I held onto that baby like it was the only purpose that I had," she said. "I did not let that baby go for one second." When it was over, the powerful river of mud and debris had laid waste

Attorney General Eric Holder exploded at Texas Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert during a House hearing Tuesday. In the midst of questions about the Justice Department’s failure to divulge documents about the Holy Land Foundation terror funding trial, Gohmert made a side comment about how the House of Representatives found Holder in contempt in 2012 for refusing to turn over documents related to the Fast and Furious gun-running scandal. “I realize that contempt is not a big deal to our attorney general, but it is important that we have proper oversight,” Gohmert said. “You don’t want to go there, buddy!

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., has accused the panel´s top Democrat of prompting the Internal Revenue Service in 2012 to target a conservative organization applying for nonprofit status. Issa said records obtained last week from the IRS show communications from the office of ranking member Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., about True the Vote, a Texas-based, nonprofit conservative group that aims to prevent voter fraud. The communications at one point involved Lois Lerner, the ex-IRS official who Issa´s panel is poised to hold in contempt of Congress on Thursday for refusing to provide testimony about her

A caveat right off the bat: RAND’s estimate only runs through March 28 whereas the actual deadline for signing up was March 31st. Given the crush of traffic on Healthcare.gov in late March, many more people could have signed up over those last three days than were captured by these numbers. On the other hand, the White House was claiming six million sign-ups as of March 27. There’s no way to reconcile that with RAND’s data. One of them is wrong. Maybe both, in fact. There’s a big spike in Medicaid, just as everyone expected. There’s a less big but

A founding father of the conservative movement who is now a star among Tea Party activists is urging the GOP to choose a governor to duel Washington “insider” Hillary Clinton for the White House, saying that 2016 isn´t the best time for Sen.

As a former President of The Most Powerful Country In The World, George W Bush has significantly greater access to world leaders than most budding artists. (Snip) Art critics have pointed out that a number of the 30 portraits in the exhibition appear to be based on images thrown up by a cursory search of the person´s name in Google Images. In some cases the portrait seems to have been based on the very first image result on the search engine.

On Wednesday, the House Ways and Means Committee voted to refer former Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner to the Department of Justice for criminal prosecution. By a vote of 23 to 14, a closed-door session of the House committee determined that Lerner’s role in the alleged singling out of conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status for undue scrutiny was a criminal act. The vote was “just another attempt by Republicans to vilify Ms. Lerner for political gain,” according to the ex-IRS official’s attorney, William Taylor. In spite of the fact that the DOJ has already been investigating both Lerner and the alleged

Hillary Clinton’s upcoming memoir of her time in the Obama Administration will be released on June 10, according to a website for the book. The book, which will be published by Simon & Shuster, will cover key moments during her time as Secretary of State, a position she held from 2009 to early 2013. Clinton also shares her thoughts on how to “navigate the challenges of the 21st century,”according to the website. It will be her second memoir after 2003´s Living History. The publisher has not yet released a title or a design of the book’s sleeve, though its contents are highly anticipated in the period leading up to the 2016 Presidential election.
