How Obama ran down the
nuclear doomsday clock

Americans don´t pride themselves on acts of treachery, but there are times when we as a nation have betrayed people. (snip) the worst betrayal -- by far -- has been Obama´s enabling of full Iranian nuclear development, now about 36 days from 90% nuclear enrichment. Every American president since Harry S Truman has opposed the spread of nuclear weapons to regimes mad enough to use them. Before his death in 1953, Jozef Stalin was threatening to start a worldwide nuclear conflict, as Hitler and Japan would have done had they possessed nuclear weapons. After Stalin, the US and USSR arrived at

The Book that Trayvon´s
Parents Should Write
American Thinker, by Jack Cashill    Original Article
Posted By: magnante- 12/17/2013 8:59:46 AM     Post Reply
"Trayvon Martin´s Parents Are Planning a Book" -- so reads the headline of a gentle December 13 article in the New York Times.(snip)Martin´s parents have the opportunity to set the record straight. According to the Times, they intend "to write a book that gives the full picture of their son." If so, they would do the public a service if they discovered what it was that inspired Martin´s unprovoked attack on Zimmerman that rainy night in Florida. Now that the media have finally acknowledged the "knock out game," the parents might ask whether their son was playing that "game." To find

Reportage of last week´s Nelson Mandela funeral reveals clearly enough that President Obama has reached the point in his tenure where everything ceases to go right -- when even the most serious and determined efforts deteriorate into a hash, or worse, a joke. This happens to everyone in public life eventually, politicians above all. The original attraction wears thin, flaws appear more prominently, styles and opinions change. There is little the individual can do to avoid this.(snip)The Mandela funeral shows that Obama is deep into this phase of his career, and has landed on his head.

The extent of the Obamacare disaster is coming into focus with a new poll by Associated Press-GfK. Democrat hopes that the much-touted "fixes" to the healthcare.gov website would begin to turn around public perceptions of Obamacare are being dashed. The real problem is that the Pottery Barn Rule ("You break it, you own it") is being applied to America´s health insurance system (snip) Employers trying to control their health insurance bills have been shifting costs to workers for years, but now those changes are blamed increasingly on "Obamacare" instead of the economy or insurance companies. This is the key. In

White-washing Mandela´s Memory

After his mother was raped, and then murdered along with his father, sobbing 12-year-old Amaro was gagged and drowned in scalding bathwater. And that´s how the youngest member of the Viana family became a statistic: another in a long line of white South African victims of black violence. It´s an understatement to say that such crimes have a racial component, yet the government run by the African National Congress - Nelson Mandela´s party - denies even that. (snip) Mandela didn´t exhibit nearly the same passion when he sang a song about killing whites.

The New York Times is wringing its hands over the damage being done to the city´s artists and independent professionals by Obamacare. The sort of people who worship at the altar of Obama and who regard the Times and its editorial pronouncements (including those on Obamacare) as holy scripture. Cliff Their writes, "I haven´t laughed so hard in a long time." Anemona Hartocollis of the Gray Lady writes: Many in New York´s professional and cultural elite have long supported President Obama´s health care plan. But now, to their surprise, thousands of writers, opera singers, music teachers, photographers, doctors, lawyers and

I thought the photo below was interesting. I wonder if some of the White House photo restrictions are to avoid shots in which it is obvious that Michelle and Barack are not on the same page. They are a fantasy couple to many black women who have no hope of marrying a more successful man -- akin to Diana and Prince Charles among white women who should have known better (most of the professional women I worked with) in the 90s.

Detroit News Muzzles Readers

The Detroit News is really upset about how its readers talk about race. (snip) The readers are so off-message about commenting on race at the MLive website that the newspaper felt it needed to post rules about how comply with the racial guidelines: How to discuss racial issues on MLive without violating the Community Rules. First, if you see one of the daily stories about black history month or the black museum or whatever, and you wonder in the comments sections why there is no counterpart for white or Asian or Amish people, you will be removed. That is a "false equivalence,"

HHS goes lawless, flailing around

"Nice little insurance company you´ve got there. Be a shame if anything happened to it." In essence, that´s the message just delivered to the health care insurance industry. Panicking, they´re just making it up as they go along, under pressure of the December 23rd deadline for enrollment in Obamacare in order to be covered in 2014. In an ill-considered move, the Department of Health and Human Services contravened the law and vaguely threatened ("strongly encouraged") the health insurance industry in order to assuage some of the injuries done by the poor design and incompetent administration of Obamacare.

Does MSNBC know that one of its hosts is receiving large amounts of money form an interest group whose political activities he covers? Does the network have any journalistic ethics guidelines at all? Elisha Krauss of truthrevolt.org presents the results of a search of Department of Labor archives showing the amounts of money Schultz has received from politically active organizations he covers: Schultz received at least $177,000 from labor unions in 2012; the average median income for an American family is around $44,000 a year. This year alone the DOL shows Schultz has been paid $75,000 by the AFL-CIO; just yesterday AFL-CIO Richard

How much in actual health care could have been paid for with the taxpayer amounts currently being spent on developing websites for people to sign up for health insurance plans they aren´t happy with?. Consider Oregon. According to the most recent numbers from the Kaiser Foundation the average cost of one day of in patient hospital care in Oregon was $2,967. Oregon has 36 hospitals with a total of 5916 beds, $300 million in state and federal funds used for Oregon to build its website. would pay for 101,112 days of hospitalization - enough to fill every hospital bed in Oregon

The liberal media starts to take the measure of a media figure they must be afraid of. Make that very, very afraid. Dan Zak of the Washington Post has a long and interesting article on Megyn Kelly, whose new show on Fox News Channel has become a major hit (snip)My gut instinct tells me that a media career, however successful, will not be the end point of Megyn Kelly´s professional achievement. In fact, I faintly recall that once upon a time there was a media figure with incredible charisma, intensity, and likability who decided that the nation needed conservative politics

Caroline Kennedy is a long way from Syracuse.The soft-spoken presidential scion, who four years ago this month toured upstate New York in a short and ill-fated bid for the U.S. Senate, has swept with force into her newest public role as President Barack Obama’s ambassador in Japan.

As thousands of state residents enroll in Washington’s expanded Medicaid program, many will be surprised at fine print: After you’re dead, your estate can be billed for ordinary health-care expenses. The way Prins saw it, that meant health insurance via Medicaid is hardly “free” for Washington residents 55 or older. It’s a loan . . .

Valerie Jarrett, Obama´s Rasputin, unwittingly provided us an answer to the question of why the Obama Presidency is such a man-caused disaster. There are few people who are close to the notoriously insular Barack Obama (a former aide, Neera Tanden, said that "Obama doesn´t call anyone, and he´s not close to almost anyone. It´s stunning that he´s in politics, because he really doesn´t like people") but Valerie Jarrett is among the select few. They have been friends for decades; she introduced Barack to Michelle; she is a constant presence in the White House, and highly unusual for a White House

The Republican establishment is fed up with the “outside groups” — the conservative lobbying shops and super PACs that have pulled the party Rightward in recent years — and this time, it’s the establishment that is uninterested in compromise. House Speaker John Boehner and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell are playing to win. But here´s the problem: Directly fighting the insurgent groups only makes them stronger. In a span of 48 hours, the party leadership took two direct shots at the conservative insurgents. Boehner attacked the outside groups on camera, singling out Heritage Action. Also, Rep. Steve Scalise, R-La., fired Republican Study

Business trade associations applauded the rant by Speaker John Boehner against outside conserative groups like Heritage Action and FreedomWorks, saying it was long overdue. The Hill: Business groups, whose frustration with the Tea Party boiled over during the government shutdown, said Boehner´s broadside was long overdue. "I think we have all said it. The business community has been uniformly frustrated at how strident the ideological groups have been in defiance of reason," said David French, senior vice president of government relations of the National Retail Federation. Lobbyists said they are encouraged by the fact that the budget accord easily passed the lower chamber despite

Sure, he likely didn’t mean anything overtly sexual by it. But Vice President Joe Biden is a folksy kind of guy who has officially entered dirty old man territory and done something sure to elicit laughs within the White House Press Corps. Look how he’s manhandling The Hill‘s White House Correspondent Aime Parnes for this photograph taken at a recent holiday party that she posted on her Facebook page. For most people’s tastes he’s grazing way too close to the vicinity of her abdomen. And watch her reaction. Is it shock, awe, utter disbelief? Whatever the expression, she appeared to

MINNEAPOLIS--Black students at the University of Minnesota say racial descriptions in crime alerts does not help catch suspects. Instead, it´s hurting black male students. There have been more than two dozen crimes on or near the U this year. Crime alert after crime alert describes many of the suspects as young black males. "There are a plethora of young black men on campus who fit that description," Abdel-Kader Toovi, a college senior and vice president of the Black Men´s Forum on campus, said. Ian Taylor, a junior and president of the Black Men´s Forum, said many of their members have expressed concern over how

The critically acclaimed performer, who was born in County Galway, Ireland, died after being taken to hospital with a long-suffering illness on Friday. He is survived by two daughters - Kate and Patricia - and a son, Lorcan Patrick O´Toole. In a statement released earlier, Kate O’Toole said: ´His family are very appreciative and completely overwhelmed by the outpouring of real love and affection being expressed towards him, and to us, during this unhappy time.

The universe is a hologram and everything you can see - including this article and the device you are reading it on - is a mere projection. This is according to a controversial model proposed in 1997 by theoretical physicist Juan Maldacena. Until now the bizarre theory had never been tested, but recent mathematical models suggest that the mind-boggling principle could be true. According to the theory, gravity in the universe comes from thin, vibrating strings. These strings are holograms of events that take place in a simpler, flatter cosmos. Professor Maldacena´s model suggests that the universe exists in nine

Lobbyists and the GOP political establishment applauded Speaker John Boehner´s strident attacks against the Tea Party and conservatives as the House prepared to approve the Ryan-Murray budget deal. Boehner hadsaid that conservative groups had "lost all credibility" for opposing a budget deal that increases the national debt. While business groups may get a tingle hearing Boehner´s harsh words, one wonders how alienating the grass roots will help them curtail the next government overreach. “You didn´t hear all the applause across downtown?” Dirk Van Dongen, a top GOP lobbyist with the National Association of Wholesaler-Distributors (NAW) said about Boehner´s remarks. “Folks

House Speaker John Boehner checked off the final items on his list of year-end legislation Thursday, dismissing lawmakers for a 25-day holiday recess. The House came together in rare bipartisan fashion to pass the budget deal, approve the National Defense Authorization Act, extend farm law through the end of next month and temporarily delay cuts to doctors’ Medicare payments. But left undone was one major piece of legislation: an extension of long-term unemployment benefits. Although the benefits could be extended retroactively, as Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid acknowledged this week, 1.3 million Americans are set to lose them Dec. 28.
