KATHLEEN KANE, Pennsylvania´s attorney general since January, is now considering a run for higher elected office. The Scranton native is not planning to enter the crowded 2014 Democratic primary election for governor, as many speculated. Instead, Kane is eyeing a 2016 run for the U.S. Senate against Pat Toomey, a Lehigh Valley Republican. Three sources close to Kane confirmed that she is very interested in a 2016 Senate run. "I think she sees it as a good opportunity," one of the sources said. "I think it´s something she´s seriously looking at." No decision has been made, according to a second

Hillary, Obama and the media:
Reducing politics to sex and race
Fox News, by Howard Kurtz    Original Article

Also ... ´View´ from the Left? Hillary, Obama and the media: Reducing politics to sex and race -We’ve apparently settled on what the 2016 presidential campaign is going to be about. Sex. Not sex as in Hillary Clinton’s gender, but sex as in sex scandals. And by the way, the grand narrative of Barack Obama’s presidency is about race, and that won’t change until he leaves office. These are among the pronouncements in a pair of New York Magazine essays: Frank Rich writing about Hillary, and Jonathan Chait weighing in on Barack. Now nobody with a pulse could deny that

Palin Warns Holder on Gun Bracelets:
´You Don´t Want to Go There, Buddy´

After Attorney General Eric Holder revealed that he was considering forcing gun owners to wear identifying bracelets, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin harshly warned him that he better not even think about trying to implement the idea. "Eric, ´You don´t want to go there, buddy,´" she declared on Wednesday. Palin posted a photo (see below) of the three bracelets she often wears and explained the significance of each: Hey Eric, these are my identifying bracelets: One honors our military; One honors independent Americans who have a healthy distrust of Washington´s permanent political class and who will fight against elitists hell-bent

Eric Holder strays from planned remarks

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

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.

Networks Ignore House GOP´s
Criminal Referral for Lois Lerner
Newsbusters, by Matt Hadro    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/10/2014 6:09:03 AM     Post Reply
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 girl asks Hillary

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

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 piece includes well-wished from people like Diane Sawyer, Star Jones, and Larry King, with some of them saying it’s unlikely Walters will just go away into the sunset and not come back to do any more work for ABC. Walters herself doesn’t rule out the possibility either. She says, “If the president came on, depending on the circumstances, I might come back. If Fidel Castro said

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!

Speaking to USA Today Tuesday on the 40th anniversary of his then record-breaking 715th home run, the 80-year-old Aaron said that Republicans are hindering Obama’s job performance. “Sure, this country has a black president, but when you look at a black president, President Obama is left with his foot stuck in the mud from all of the Republicans with the way he’s treated,” Aaron told USA Today Sports.

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

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

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

Eric Holder ventured off script in a speech Wednesday to the National Action Network, the organization led by MSNBC host and recently-exposed FBI informant Al Sharpton. “I’m pleased to note that the last five years have been defined by significant strides and by lasting reforms,” said Holder at the conference of black activists, before improvising “even in the face, even in the face, of unprecedented, unwarranted, ugly, and divisive adversity.” “If you don’t believe that, if you look at the way, forget about me, forget about me, if you look at the way the attorney general of the United States was treated

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. Ted Cruz to run. Often called the “funding father” of conservatism for pioneering direct mail fundraising, Richard A.

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.

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

Nanny Firefox posted a political opinion on my screen before allowing me to proceed to read the article. This message didn’t appear when I accessed a second article which met with Firefox’s political commissar’s approval. Here’s what Firefox said: Careful Now!
