Three Ways to Tell if Someone
Is Plotting a Coup Against You

Time Magazine, by Michael Crowley

Original Article

North Korea‘s cherub tyrant Kim Jong Un startled the outside world this week by having a top regime official, who also happens to be his uncle, dragged from a public meeting and later executed. A creepy statement from North Korea’s official news agency accuses Jang Song Thaek of numerous crimes, including plotting against the regime and leading “a dissolute and depraved life” that included womanizing and gambling. One of the giveaways, according to the statement, was that at an ecstatic Workers Party of Korea meeting, Jang “behaved so arrogantly and insolently as unwillingly standing up from his seat and half-heartedly clapped

“Don’t ever be the first to stop applauding!”

Some of 0bama´s lackeys in the media have forgotten this lesson. They will regret this show of disloyalty and disrespect.

Womanizing and gambling? That should have had the little thug´s own father up against a firing squad permanently if even half the stories about him were true.

It was the same story at Saddam Hussein´s various meetings. Grown men jumping up and down and clapping while others were pulled outside and shot, sometimes by Saddam himself. We aren´t there yet but the butt-bussing media has several members who would like to be, eh, Chrissy?

In a bad omen for Democrats hopes in the mid-term elections, Barack Obama’s favorability rating has slide so far that he’s now nine points under the rating for our favorite crack-smoking Canadian mayor. In the most recent polling, Rob Ford gets 47% of Toronto’s denizen’s approval, while Obama gets a dismal 38% from Americans: Mayor Rob Ford’s response to the December ice storm seems to have thawed his approval rating, according to a new poll. A Forum Research poll provided exclusively to the Toronto Sun found Ford’s approval rating slid up in the wake of last month’s storm to 47% – up from

Iran Sanctions Questions

ORLANDO/FT. LAUDERDALE—Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D., Fla.) continued to evade questions about her efforts to block new Iran sanctions legislation in Congress when asked today about the issue during multiple public appearances on Saturday in Florida. Wasserman Schultz fled from a Washington Free Beacon reporter on two separate occasions when asked to explain her stance on new Iran sanction, which the lawmaker is reported to be lobbying against behind closed doors on Capitol Hill. The Florida lawmakers and Democratic National Committee chair made stops in Orlando and Ft. Lauderdale to publicly criticize and mock New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who is in

The Democratic Party’s uphill
path to 270 electoral votes in 2016

My Post colleague Dan Balz has some very interesting reporting from Democratic and Republican strategists. Both groups seem somewhat pessimistic about the GOP’s chances in 2016:(Snip) If economic and political conditions in 2016 were the same as they are today, what would happen? So assume that Obama’s approval rating is about 41 percent. Assume that GDP has grown 1.6 percent in the first two quarters of 2016. And, of course, no incumbent will be running. Based on those assumptions, the model predicts that the Republican Party has a 64 percent chance of winning the presidency.

The scandal is MSNBC

The bridge scandal started out as a test for New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R). Now it has become a test for the media. MSNBC, which long ago stopped being a news outlet in the sense of going out to find facts and is largely indistinguishable from Democratic Party talking points, has been going 24/7 since the bridge story broke. No surprise. But then Saturday MSNBC decided to throw even the pretense of journalism overboard. It ran with a claim from Mayor Dawn Zimmer of Hoboken claiming Christie withheld Sandy relief funds to gain approval for a business development. Christie’s

New Orleans´ Lower 9th Ward is

NEW ORLEANS — The Rev. Charles Duplessis navigated the new landscape of the Lower 9th Ward, crossing from newly paved streets to those still muddy and rutted as riverbeds. He drove past a gleaming duplex designed by Frank Gehry and the skeletons of vacant homes, past a community garden and overgrown lots with "no dumping" signs, until he reached his destination: Flood Street. Here were more examples of the progress made after Hurricane Katrina — and the problems that remain. Construction cranes hovered over a new community center taking shape nearby. A city crew poured concrete for new sidewalks that stretched past

Lots of buzz about Caleb Hannan’s amazing piece about “Dr. V,” Essay Anne Vanderbilt, an inventor of an ultratechno golf club. Excerpt: But it wasn’t just the science behind Dr. V’s putter that intrigued McCord. It was the scientist, too. For starters, she was a woman in the male-dominated golf industry. She also cut a striking figure, standing 6-foot-3 with a shock of red hair. What’s more, she was a Vanderbilt, some link in the long line descending from Cornelius, the original Commodore. All of this would have been more than enough to capture McCord’s attention, but what he found

Mark Levin’s fair-weather federalism
Daily Caller, by Brion McClanahan    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 1/19/2014 5:20:10 AM     Post Reply
Radio talk-show host Mark Levin’s new book The Liberty Amendments has introduced many Americans to the idea of an Article V Convention. He is not the first to propose this method, but because of his public profile, Levin has moved the issue to the front-burner for many conservatives. God bless him; better late than never. There are potential problems with an Article V convention, but they could probably be hammered out before one took place. That said, Levin has publically criticized other methods of arresting the unconstitutional actions of the general government, most importantly “nullification,” even going so far as to

WHAT would Marlise Munoz have made of all of this? We’ll never know. She can no longer form words. Can no longer form thoughts. It’s arguable that we shouldn’t even be referring to a “she,” to a “her,” because if she’s brain-dead, as her family has consistently said, then she meets the legal criteria for death in all 50 states, and what’s been tethered to machines in a hospital in Fort Worth for the last seven weeks isn’t exactly a mother. It’s an artificially maintained ecosystem, an incubator for a fetus that has somehow been given precedence over all other concerns:

Are Duck Dynasty Fans
Duped, or in on the Joke?

For all the outrage, indignation, and general tumult over the TV show “Duck Dynasty” and its starring family that took place over the holiday season, the one thing almost no one charged was that the Robertson clan were fakes. Yet that’s just the charge Daniel Luzer explored at Washington Monthly last week: According to the GQ article: “Perhaps it’s not exactly shocking that a deeply religious 67-year-old hunter from rural Louisiana would have, shall we say, enthusiastic ideas about what constitutes good Christian morality. That’s the unspoken red-state appeal of Duck Dynasty. They’re godly folk. “Real” folk.”That’s part of the appeal of

The two-day show on February 10 and 11 at Madison Square Garden and Piers 92 and 94 will open with a separate agility competition in which mixed-breed dogs will be allowed to compete for the first time in more than 100 years.

The crop-killing drought that has parched much of the West for 13 years is expected to continue, according to a grim new forecast from the Department of Agriculture. “Right now the West Coast is all red," Natural Resources Conservation Service Hydrologist Tom Perkins said. "Early indications are it will be very dry in the western part of the West, but wetter as you travel east. There are some exceptions to this, as New Mexico, Arizona, parts of Utah and southern Colorado are also expected to be dry."

President Barack Obama said that racial tensions may have softened his popularity among white voters within the last two years, according to a story posted on the New Yorker magazine’s website today. “There’s no doubt that there’s some folks who just really dislike me because they don’t like the idea of a black president,” Obama said in the article by David Remnick, appearing in the magazine’s Jan. 27 edition. “Now, the flip side of it is there are some black folks and maybe some white folks who really like me and give me the benefit of the doubt precisely because I’m a black president,” Obama said in his most direct comments

Gov. Cuomo has a message for conservative Republicans — you don’t belong in New York. Cuomo said Friday that members of the GOP with “extreme” views are creating an identity crisis for their party and represent a bigger worry than Democrats such as himself. “Their problem isn’t me and the Democrats; their problem is themselves,” the governor said on Albany’s The Capitol Pressroom radio show. “Who are they? Right to life, pro-assault weapons, anti-gay — if that’s who they are, they have no place in the state of New York because that’s not who New Yorkers are.”

There was a party in the East Room of the White House Saturday night, an affair attended by a reported 500 people, a lavish celebration with celebrities galore, appearances by some of the world´s most popular performers, lots of dancing and powerful government officials, including, of course, the most powerful official of all, the President of the United States. And the White House wants to make sure you know as little as possible about it. The event was First Lady Michelle Obama´s 50th anniversary party.

On the Sunday afternoon before Thanksgiving, Barack Obama sat in the office cabin of Air Force One wearing a look of heavy-lidded annoyance. The Affordable Care Act, his signature domestic achievement and, for all its limitations, the most ambitious social legislation since the Great Society, half a century ago, was in jeopardy. His approval rating was down to forty per cent—lower than George W. Bush’s in December of 2005, when Bush admitted that the decision to invade Iraq had been based on intelligence that “turned out to be wrong.” Also, Obama said thickly, “I’ve got a fat lip.” That morning,

He doesn’t have a son — that we know of — but that didn’t stop President Obama from weighing in on the pro football concussion controversy. The president made those comments in a wide-ranging interview appearing in The New Yorker today. The Hill reports: President Obama said that he believed NFL players “know what they’re doing” and understood the impact that concussions could have on their long-term health in an interview with The New Yorker published on Sunday, adding that he would not let his son play pro football. “At this point, there’s a little bit of caveat emptor,” Obama

Wendy Davis has made her personal story of struggle and success a centerpiece of her campaign to become the first Democrat elected governor of Texas in almost a quarter-century.While her state Senate filibuster last year captured national attention, it is her biography — a divorced teenage mother living in a trailer who earned her way to Harvard and political achievement — that her team is using to attract voters and boost fundraising.The basic elements of the narrative are true, but the full story of Davis’ life is more complicated, as often happens when public figures aim to define themselves.

The world’s richest 85 people control the same amount of wealth as the total held by half the world’s population, according to a report issued today by the British-based anti-poverty charity Oxfam. The means the world’s poorest 3,550,000,000 (3.55 billion) people must live on what the richest 85 possess. Another way to look at it: Each of the wealthiest 85 Earthlings has access to the resources available to about 42 million of the world’s poor, a population equal to the total number of people living in Canada, with those all those from Kentucky and Kansas tossed in.

As debate in Washington turns increasingly to the issue of income inequality, Gallup´s annual “Mood of the Nation” survey finds that two-thirds of Americans are dissatisfied with the current distribution of income and wealth in the U.S. When asked how satisfied they were with the “the way income and wealth are distributed in the U.S.,” 67 percent of respondents said they were dissatisfied, while 39 percent described themselves as very dissatisfied. In contrast, only 32 percent were content with America´s wealth distribution, and a scant 7 percent described themselves as very satisfied. While there is a sizable gap in sentiments

A new trend for male leggings, known as meggings, is about to hit the mainstream according to a new company which plans to make them accessible for all. Until now the super-tight trousers have been confined to the runway or worn only by rock stars but a new company plans to launch them on the high street. US duo Adam Freck and Andrew Volk, who launched their Chicago-based company Meggings Man Clothing in December, are specialising in leggings for the modern man. [Snip] Unlike traditional leggings, which are typically worn by women, ´meggings´ are designed for the male physique.

It wasn’t enough that Texas refused to set up a state insurance exchange or expand Medicaid under the new Affordable Care Act, causing the federal government to step in and create a marketplace for Texans needing healthcare coverage. No, this state, through its top Republican leaders, devised a sinister plan to sabotage the ACA (or Obamacare) altogether. And in doing so, it threw up major roadblocks for millions in this state who are uninsured. These leaders ought to be ashamed, but I learned a long time ago that (in the words of poet Nikki Giovanni) they ain’t got no shame. To assist with educating
