Democratic Leadership Council founder Al From is out with a new book, “The New Democrats and the Return to Power,” that both examines the success of the ideology most prominently practiced by former President Bill Clinton in the 1990s and lays out From’s vision of where Democrats need to go next. Although From told POLITICO that the current Democratic Party “is doing pretty well,” he says “we also have some big challenges.” “We have to make sure that we can grow the economy and create jobs,” From said. “We have to be the party of opportunity.

Liberals Double Down on Inequality
American Thinker, by Christopher Chantrill    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 1/7/2014 6:33:11 AM     Post Reply
It was on December 4, 2013 that President Obama opened the Year of Inequality with his speech on economic mobility. A month later liberal hounds are baying for extended unemployment benefits and higher minimum wage, and conservatives are drawing up lists of what liberals know that ain´t so. Here is John Hawkins´ enumeration of how liberal inequality politics hurts the poor. 1. Minimum wage prices poor out of jobs. 2. Minimum wage makes people comfortable, not succeed. 3. More government equals more economic stagnation. 4. More inequality programs make it harder to get ahead. 5. Inequality politics ignores real causes of poverty. And here is John C.

The Obama Doctrine Revealed
American Thinker, by Richard Butrick    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 1/7/2014 6:28:23 AM     Post Reply
The basic foreign policy principles of various presidencies have been dubbed "doctrines." In most cases such "doctrines" are gleaned from the practices of a given president´s foreign policy and pieced together from various official documents and even memos. One notable exception being the Monroe Doctrine which was put forward as a public doctrine and a warning to European countries. Introduced on December 2, 1823, in President Monroe´s state of the union speech, it basically warned European nations to butt out of South America and the Americas generally. In return the US would butt out of European affairs. By contrast the Bush

This collection of stunning pictures show why the Isle of Man is heaven for stargazers. Despite being just 32 miles long and 14 miles wide, the island has been named as one of Britain´s best places to see the night sky. Astronomers from the Dark Sky Discovery Network have awarded it a total of 26 designated Dark Sky Discovery Sites, putting it up there in terms of status with Death Valley in the U.S. It is thought that more than 85 per cent of the population have never seen a truly dark sky due to light pollution. But with low population and few built

That´s not healthy eating! Michelle
only lays out finger food and drinks
for guests at her 50th birthday bash
Daily Mail (U.K.), by Staff    Original Article

Michelle Obama’s 50th birthday bash invitations included an unexpected surprise – no dinner. Invitations for the First Lady’s January 18 party tell guests to ‘eat before you come’ and ‘practice your dance moves.’ The party’s fitting title is ‘Snacks & Sips & Dancing & Dessert,’ sources told the Chicago Tribune. The dancing party will be light on food, but heavy on dancing, perhaps in a nod to Ms Obama’s ongoing physical fitness campaigning. The entertainment and guest list are a closely-guarded secret, the Tribune noted. She first hinted at party plans during a visit last month to a children’s hospital, according to the paper.

Rodman: Kim Jong Un ‘My

Dennis Rodman continued to emphasize his bizarre affection for North Korea’s Kim Jong Un, even when pressed about the dictator’s atrocities. While in Beijing with seven other former NBA players en route to Pyongyang to take part in an exhibition game for Kim’s birthday, Sky News confronted the Worm about why his “friend for life” has locked up 200,000 people in North Korean prison camps. Rodman asserted that it wasn’t his “job” to address those concerns with Kim, but hoped that his involvement arranging the game could “open the doors” to negotiations for those in a better position to handle it.

   

 

  


 
It´s Time for Conservatives
to Embrace Choice
Breitbart´s Big Government, by Thomas J. Basile    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 1/6/2014 10:35:51 PM     Post Reply
It’s been a year since the Republican autopsy report made the grand and completely obvious declaration that Republicans must reach additional constituencies to be more relevant on a national level. There is little evidence that the party is reaching beyond its comfort zone, choosing instead to rely on running against Obama during the 2014 elections. A shame to be sure, because that strategy is the kind of narrow thinking that ensures liberals have an edge in the American political landscape even though their poll numbers consistently show the opposite should be true. If more consistent and meaningful outreach to minorities,

It’s not every new mayor who gets to be sworn in by a former president while a former first lady and secretary of state looks on. But New York’s Bill de Blasio is not just any rookie mayor and Bill and Hillary Clinton are not just any former Washington power couple. Mr. de Blasio is the most unapologetically leftist New York mayor in decades and a symbol of the recent ascendancy of the liberal populists in the Democratic Party. The Clintons are the wiliest political duo in modern U.S. history, out to rewrite the latter so as to ease Hillary’s path

Obama´s 2014 Game Plan: Fewer
Swing-State Visits, More Fundraising
Breitbart´s Big Government, by William Bigelow    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 1/6/2014 10:26:47 PM     Post Reply
Barack Obama’s 2014 campaign to help hold the Senate and gain seats in the House is hampered by one salient factor: Obama’s own low poll numbers are a drag for candidates, who consequently want to keep him at a distance. The rollout of Obamacare, with all its glitches and subsequent disaffection among voters, has caused some Democrats to divorce themselves from the Obama Administration. An NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll in December showed Obama with 54% disapproval of him and only 43% of respondents approving. Yet Terry Holt, a consultant and former George W. Bush campaign spokesman,

New York is saved. The
left-wingers are in charge
National Post (Canada), by Kelly McParland    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 1/6/2014 10:25:16 PM     Post Reply
It’s touching, in a way, how left-wingers consistently find society in need of saving. The saving never seems to get done, despite their best efforts. Even when they control governments and the associated political machinery, somehow just as much saving is needed at the end of their tenure as there was at the beginning. The administration of U.S. President Barack Obama is a good example. When Mr. Obama ran for the presidency six years ago, many excited supporters thought he possessed the magic formula to reconfigure Washington’s chronic dysfunctionality. Americans weren’t alone in that — the Nobel organization awarded him

Poll: Majority Want
Benghazi Select Committee

A poll released by Democratic pollster Pat Caddell and Republican pollster John McLaughlin shows that a vast majority of American voters want a special select committee to investigate the Benghazi scandal. However, House Speaker John Boehner is denying them a shot at it. Secure America Now president Allen Roth, whose organization commissioned the poll, points to it as a major reason why he signed a letter to Boehner sent Monday that demands he stop obstructing the investigation and install a select committee. "In a recent national poll, conducted by Democrat Pat Caddell and Republican John McLaughlin, 62% of Americans say

Former Rep. Allen West (R-FL), a leader in the conservative movement and retired Lt. Colonel of the United States Army, told Breitbart News that he thinks House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) and Majority Leader Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA) might be trying to help the Obama administration cover up the Benghazi scandal. West is a signer of the letter from a coalition of conservative and military leaders, along with three family members of the victims in the Benghazi terrorist attack, that demanded Boehner create a select committee to investigate the Benghazi terrorist attack. Boehner has been blocking the House Resolution from Rep.

Obamacare is a flea bitten dog that never would have been enacted without wholesale and deliberate falsehoods said over and over again by Barack Obama and every Democrat cheerleader. It never would have been enacted without legislative sleights-of-hand and backroom bribes offered to key Democrats. It never would have been enacted and Barack Obama would likely not have won a second term without the willing negligence of a toothless “watchdog press” who refused to independently investigate or report obvious lies. Now we will be bitten by this dog and indeed, as many as five million people who have lost insurance (that they

Early last summer in her Georgian-style home near Washington’s Embassy Row, Hillary Clinton met with a handful of aides for a detailed presentation on preparing for a 2016 presidential campaign. Three officials from the Democratic consulting firm Dewey Square Group — veteran field organizer Michael Whouley, firm founder Charlie Baker and strategist Jill Alper, whose expertise includes voter attitudes toward women candidates — delivered a dispassionate, numbers-driven assessment. They broke down filing deadlines in certain states, projected how much money Clinton would need to raise and described how field operations have become more sophisticated in the era of Barack Obama.

One Sunday night in early November I watched Bret Baier´s Special Report in which he interviewed Charles Krauthammer. In responding to a question about his inclusion in his book, Things That Matter, a 2007 column about baseball player Rick Ankeil´s fall and return to the major leagues, Krauthammer responded with a reference to a line from that article: "...the catastrophe that awaits everyone from a single false move, wrong turn, fatal encounter. Every life has such a moment. What distinguishes us is whether -- and how -- we ever come back." Several hours later, I had a terrible accident. As it

New York - Liz Cheney, whose upstart bid to unseat Wyoming Sen. Mike Enzi sparked a round of warfare in the Republican Party and even within her own family, is dropping out of the Senate primary, sources told CNN late Sunday. Cheney, the eldest daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, began telling associates of her decision over the weekend and could make an official announcement about the race as early as Monday. Cheney´s surprising decision to jump into the race, an announcement made in a YouTube video last summer, roiled Republican politics in the Wyoming, a state Dick Cheney represented in Congress for five

First Lady Michelle Obama failed to accompany President Obama and their daughters home from Hawaii today, a decision that will likely incur taxpayers at least a couple of hundred thousand dollars in costs. The White House described the move as a “birthday gift” from President Obama to his wife, allowing her to “spend times with friends ahead of her upcoming 50th birthday,” which occurs January 17. But for this gift, you are footing much of the bill. I estimated some costs a year ago when, on their previous vacation to Hawaii, it appeared that Michelle was going to stay in Hawaii

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said that congressional Republicans’ sole agenda is to “make President [Barack] Obama look bad.” In his first speech on the Senate floor in the new year, Reid called for bipartisan cooperation, saying that Republicans had hamstrung bipartisan efforts. “We have been able to get a few things done but we have been unable to get some important things done because the goal by the Republicans in the congress — not the Republicans in the country, but the Republicans in the congress — is to do everything they can to make President Obama look bad,” Reid said.

MSNBC’s Al Sharpton dressed in a lab coat and stood behind fake test tubes in front of a cartoon setting on Friday and lectured everyone from Republicans to Fox News about the “facts” of “global waming.” Sharpton used part of his “Politics Nation: Science Lab” segment on MSNBC on Friday to exploit the arctic winter freeze hitting much of the country this weekend: “These right wingers are boiling over with denial.

Wisconsin Republican Gov.

The potential 2016 Republican presidential contender appeared on CNN’s “State of the Union” with host Candy Crowley: CROWLEY: When Republicans on Capitol Hill agreed to a budget agreement before they left for the holiday recess, Speaker John Boehner came out and really took on conservatives — tea party-types — for having an undue influence on some of his members that have blocked, famously, a number of things that we

According to a new profile piece in The Atlantic, GOP pollster and frequent Fox News contributor Frank Luntz sunk into a depression following the 2012 election in which President Obama won re-election over Republican candidate Mitt Romney. Luntz described himself as “less healthy now than [he has] ever been in [his] life,” sleeping two or three hours at a time and fretting over the future of his career in political consulting. The Atlantic‘s Molly Ball wrote: The crisis began, he says, after last year’s presidential election, when Luntz became profoundly depressed. For more than a month, he tried to stay occupied, but

Mayor Bill de Blasio´s promise to ban New York City´s iconic horse-drawn carriages could backfire, exposing what the newly-elected mayor´s critics suggest is a corruption scandal masquerading as an animal-rights crusade. Defenders of the carriage industry point to a real-estate executive who is one of de Blasio´s major campaign donors as the driving force behind the effort to abolish the carriages. "It´s got everything a scandal could ever want," says Eva Hughes, vice-president of the Horse and Carriage Association of New York City. Hughes spent 16 years driving carriages, her husband still drives a carriage, and she says they are

It was a Navy SEALs mission gone terribly wrong. One evening in June 2005, four Navy SEALs were sent on a mission to track down Taliban leader Ahmad Shah. As they moved up a mountain in Afghanistan, they were surprised by 3 goat herders. The mission was compromised. (Snip) The special operations chopper that flew in to rescue them was shot down. Luttrell´s SEAL brothers, Danny Dietz, Matt Axelson and Mike Murphy were all killed. They were three of 19 U.S. service members lost that day.
