EXography: Tea Party leaders

Washington Examiner, by Mark Tapscott

Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul is the most written-about member of the U.S. Senate, and by a wide margin over his closest competitor. At least that is the case if the measure used is how many hits come up on a Google search for "Sen. Rand Paul."Paul generated more than 34 million results in a Dec. 27 Google search on the term "Sen. Rand Paul," 8.2 million more than Texas Republican Ted Cruz, who generated 26.5 million. Search totals vary from day to day, likely reflecting each senator´s comparative activity in the daily news flow. Florida Democrat Sen. Bill Nelson

House Resolution of No
Confidence: Obama´s Conviction
without Eviction
American Thinker, by Jim Guirard    Original Article
Posted By: mikkins2- 1/1/2014 5:49:28 AM     Post Reply
During the last two years, there has been a marked increase in calls for the impeachment of President Barack Obama. But there is no commensurate increase in the likelihood that either a formal indictment by the House or formal conviction by the Senate can actually be achieved.{SNIP} What other punishment would amount to more than a proverbial slap on the wrist? And when at long last might such punishment be applied in a way that is not regarded as a cop-out by Republicans in name only -- RINOs -- who are not sufficiently anti-Obama to fight for impeachment?

Government produces nothing. It creates no wealth. Yet the District of Columbia is ranked as the richest area in the nation. Politicians and bureaucrats shriek that business people are "greedy." But facts show differently. Imagine voting yourself a raise and millions of dollars in allowances. Imagine 5-figure bonuses. Lifetime pensions to which you contribute only 1.3%. Imagine opening 3 or 4 offices around the state for which you pay not a dime. Politicians and bureaucrats are diseased with avarice -- and complain with self-righteous indignation when CEOs arrive in private jets for a White House meeting. D.C. is the richest area in the

Good point by Laura Ingraham:
It’s risky for the GOP to bank
everything on ObamaCare

We’ve been saying much the same thing here, and Laura Ingraham really drives it home in this commentary last night during her guest-hosting gig on Bill O’Reilly’s show. If the Republicans are betting all their 2014 hopes on ObamaCare - and it sure appears that they are - there’s a lot of risk in that strategy:Where I differ some with Ingraham is that I don’t think the GOP’s performance in the minority is anything to brag about. They could have taken much stronger stands against Obama’s spending in particular, but they were terrified of what the Democrat/Media axis would do to them. It shows in the lame budget agreements they settled

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin said it was "unbelievable" that MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry and her panel would mock Mitt Romney´s adopted black grandchild in the manner in which they did on Sunday. Harris-Perry apologized Tuesday morning, nearly five hours after Palin´s Facebook post and after a day of backlash. "Holy [sic] unbelievable. The hypocritical leftist lamestream media should be shamed by every caring, child-loving American. It has once again reached a new low," Palin wrote before linking to a Breitbart News article that had a video of the segment. "One just can´t win in their petty little games.

The Republican Main Street Partnership has emerged as an outspoken, deep-pocketed player in pro-business GOP plans to beat back tea-party challengers next year. But the group´s new super PAC has an unexpected source for its seed money: labor unions. The super PAC, called Defending Main Street, has not yet submitted a major donor disclosure to the Federal Election Commission. But documents filed by other groups show that two labor organizations, the International Union of Operating Engineers and the Laborers´ International Union of North America, directed a combined $400,000 to the Republican group in September and October. Main Street says it has raised

Looking ahead to 2014, Breitbart News Senior Editor-at-Large and Government Accountability Institute (GAI) President Peter Schweizer said that the best way for conservatives to defeat the permanent political class and the Republican establishment is to not compromise with or be co-opted by them. On Breitbart News Sunday on Sirius XM Patriot channel 125 with Breitbart News Executive Chairman and host Stephen K. Bannon, Schweizer, regarded as the top expert on crony capitalism in the nation, said Republicans and Democrats in Washington, D.C. are like "two vultures fighting over a carcass." He said both parties are fighting over "who´s going to pick

In 2014, let’s resolve to preserve some semblance of freedom in our culture and respond to the next blitzkriegs by the progressive fascists with an unequivocal “Go to hell.” Demanding that Americans hide their religious beliefs. Banning dissenting views on the climate change scam. Slandering people with charges of the kind of racism pioneered and perfected by the Democrat party. Those are just some highlights of the concerted campaign by the goose-stepping freaks of the left to silence us, to shut us down and leave the culture open to their domination. But the organized left is only a small cadre of sociopaths

Politico editor: Article claiming conflict

Politico Editor-in-Chief John Harris, in an interview with Howard Kurtz on Fox News´ "Media Buzz," claimed a recent article that accused Politico´s Mike Allen of writing favorable items about advertisers was "totally unfair." Harris said Sunday the suggestion that Allen´s newsletter "Playbook" was compromised was "not supported" and "horribly, horribly unfair." He was referring to a Washington Post article last month that suggested Allen´s newsletter was giving favorable coverage to groups, like the Chamber of Commerce, that advertise with him. Harris acknowledged that the newsletter, as it grew in readership, did attract sponsors, but said: "In tone, in substance, in

On the last Breitbart News Sunday of 2013, host and Breitbart News Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon invited Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow and Deputy Managing Editor Ezra Dulis to share their insights about the past year. Broadcast on Sirius XM Patriot channel 125 from 7PM to 10PM EST, it was a special end-of-the- year show, which host Bannon dubbed "The 2013 Year of Victories Show." Marlow was all business and exuded urgency. He summons all conservatives to “the foot race of our lives,” warning them that the left is in a constant sprint to uproot traditional American values.

OPM: Nearly $85 Million Paid to

The U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) erroneously paid $274 million in benefits to deceased federal retirees over the past three years, including $84.7 million in 2013 alone, according to the agency’s annual financial report. OPM’s FY 2013 financial report released in mid-December revealed that improper “overpayments” to deceased federal annuitants under its retirement program reached $102.9 million in FY 2011, $86.1 million in FY 2012, and $84.7 million in FY 2013 for a total of nearly $274 million during that three year span. According to the OPM report, improper payments made by the agency include “underpayments (monies that OPM

In late December, a two-year budget deal passed the Senate by a bipartisan 64-36 vote. It includes a provision that cuts a full 1 percent from future annual cost-of-living-adjustments to the retirement packages of all veterans under the age of 62.{SNIP}One would not mind taking a financial hit as long as it is evenly applied to all in the interests of deficit reduction. However, to be a part of a group specifically singled out by Congress while other entitlements are untouched smacks of grave injustice.

Americans named President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as the world´s most admired living man and woman in 2013, according to a Gallup poll released on Monday. Obama topped the annual list for the sixth consecutive year, a typical ranking for a sitting U.S. president, the polling organization said. But the percentage of those surveyed who choose him as the most admired man fell to 16 percent this year, down from 30 percent in 2012. The president´s job approval rating has dropped during a year marked by a botched healthcare rollout and stalled legislative initiatives at the start of

It was the 2013 Politifact "Lie of the Year," our president´s now infamous line: "If you like your health care plan, you can keep it." Now all Americans are realizing what Catholics have known from the beginning: President Barack Obama is a master of deception. Lest people forget, passage of the Affordable Care Act happened in part because Obama struck a deal with a single Catholic holdout: Bart Stupak, D-Michigan. Stupak agreed to vote for the bill in exchange for an executive order protecting conscience rights and preserving the Hyde Amendment´s ban on the use of federal funds for abortion.

Back in the seventies when I was a lefty and under the sway, like the new mayor of the city of New York, of various Central and South American marxists, we used to speak of “el enemigo principal,” the principal enemy. (Snip)The principal enemy for the right and the center-right is now Hillary Clinton, the vastly favored frontrunner for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination. She is so far in front, in fact, that her competitors are not even in hailing distance. Hillary is the one who can consolidate and solidify the “gains” of the Obama era in a way Obama

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) says people shouldn´t underestimate President Obama as he heads into his sixth year in the White House. He discounted Obama´s low approval ratings and said a sitting president always has influence. "We all wear thin with the American people after a while," McCain told the Associated Press. "To count a man of that talent out at this point in time in his administration would be a huge mistake," he added. McCain has had his up-and-downs in his relationship with Obama, his foe during the 2008 presidential campaign. He met with Obama this year to discuss immigration reform, but was a vocal

One-third of Americans reject the idea of evolution and Republicans have grown more skeptical about it, according to a poll released on Monday. Sixty percent of Americans say that "humans and other living things have evolved over time," the telephone survey by the Pew Research Center´s Religion and Public Life Project showed. But 33 percent reject the idea of evolution, saying that "humans and other living things have existed in their present form since the beginning of time," Pew said in a statement. Although this percentage remained steady since 2009, the last time Pew asked the question, there was a

MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry apologized Tuesday for openly mocking Mitt Romney´s black adopted grandson, after Sarah Palin led the chorus of conservatives who criticized the cable news host. The Romney family Christmas card was among the items featured in the "2013: The year in political ridiculousness" segment on the cable news show Sunday. In the photo, the former Republican presidential candidate and his wife Ann, who are both white, sit in the center of their 22 grandchildren. Nestled on Mitt´s knee is one toddler grandson and on his other knee he holds baby Kieran James, the adopted infant son of

MSNBC’s mocking of the adopted African-American baby in Governor Romney’s family was outrageous, offensive and over-the-line. An after-the-fact apology from host Melissa Harris-Perry two days later is not enough. MSNBC network executives need to personally apologize to Governor Romney and his family. Disciplinary action also must be taken against the offending parties, just as it would if the roles were reversed and a conservative had said something similar on a different network. Perhaps most alarming about this entire incident is the fact that the offending segment happened on Sunday afternoon and went unnoticed until a blogger flagged it Monday morning.

KAILUA, Hawaii — When they vacationed here just before President Obama’s first inauguration, Malia and Sasha were little girls doting on their dad — holding his hand on the beach, taking in a dolphin show and nuzzling up to him at the shave-ice shop. Now, five Christmases later, the presidential daughters are both nearly as tall as their very tall mother, each developing her own style and leading an increasingly independent life. Although they have watched a basketball game, gone for a hike and hit the beach with their dad, he has spent most afternoons here on the golf course

The recent New York Times article attempting to downplay terrorist involvement in the Benghazi attack that claimed the lives of four Americans on Sept. 11, 2012, directly contradicts evidence in the now infamous pre-edited talking points of then-United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice. “Months of investigation by The New York Times, centered on extensive interviews with Libyans in Benghazi who had direct knowledge of the attack there and its context, turned up no evidence that Al Qaeda or other international terrorist groups had any role in the assault,” David D. Kirkpatrick wrote in the Times. “The attack was led, instead, by

Central Park’s horse-drawn carriages will soon be a thing of the past (even more so) under the de Blasio administration. The incoming New York City mayor has already announced he will begin phasing out the nostalgic rides and ban them when he takes office, which starts tomorrow. “It’s over,” de Blasio said, calling the practice inhumane. ”We are going to quickly and aggressively move to make horse carriages no longer a part of the landscape in New York City.” Supporters of de Blasio’s efforts, such as an official with ASPCA’s Anti-Cruelty group, described the horse-drawn carriages as ”unnatural, unnecessary, and an undeniable
