Finding a new villain in
the Chris Christie drama

Washington Post, by Kathleen Parker

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 1/11/2014 5:01:08 AM

In the days since revelations surfaced about New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s office orchestrating the now-infamous George Washington Bridge lane closings, I’ve had at least four different reactions. Listed in chronological order, they were: He’s dead; maybe not so bad if he didn’t know anything; OMG, an elderly woman died! He’s gone. Latest and hardly least, Christie may emerge relatively unscathed as the media displace him as villains. To stipulate, we recognize that Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) made the sanest observation when asked Thursday to comment. “I think the right approach is to be a bit prudent here and not jump

Comments:
Parker mentions Rubio. I´m newly impressed with that young man. He may redeem himself after all.

If the Dems had a hand in "designing" this scandal (extremely likely), it will quickly go away.

Seems Parker is saying it will quickly go away.

Using political power to punish one´s enemies is nothing new. Dems have been doing this for years in Chicago and New York. I guess the shock here lies in the fact a Republican "might" have employed the tactic.

Gibson Guitar, a Republican donor, was completely shut down by Obama a couple of years ago over some imported wood. But that other guitar company, a democrat donor based in Chicago, who used the same wood from the same supplier, was left completely alone.

"What is certain is that the only thing the Republican base hates more than a liar and a bully is a bullying media. Once that common enemy is established, the perceived victim often becomes the victor. "

Bingo!

Shock poll: Hillary Clinton would beat
Sarah Palin 44%-43% in Alaska
Washington Examiner [DC], by Paul Bedard    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 2/10/2014 6:01:30 AM     Post Reply
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin´s long fall in popularity back home has hit a new low, one that could spell an end to the buzz she´s considering a presidential bid in 2016. In a new poll, she would lose a head-to-head contest with Democrat Hillary Clinton, 44 percent to 43 percent. Worse, she doesn´t even lead among those considering a GOP primary bid. Sen. Rand Paul is tops among Alaska Republicans at 15 percent followed by Palin, who is tied with Sen. Ted Cruz at 13 percent; Jeb Bush at 12 percent, Mike Huckabee, 11 percent; New Jersey Gov. Chris

At an annual gathering of Republican bigwigs in Florida a year ago, a top GOP strategist was chided after he gave a presentation about how his party would win the Senate in 2014, including a handout that blared “MAJORITY” in red. “Stop saying majority,” donors, consultants and even some senators told National Republican Senatorial Committee Executive Director Rob Collins, he recalled in an interview. “Just say you’re going to be able to pick up a few seats.” Fast forward to early this month, when the annual event took place again at the same posh Palm Beach resort. Far from preaching caution, many

This week the CBO reported that Obamacare may cut the full-time workforce by 2.5 million jobs. Democratic politicians and the White House cheered the news saying, “Opportunity created by affordable, quality health insurance allows families in America to make a decision about how they will work, or if they will work.” Only Democrats could celebrate the fact that millions will lose their work and be broke thanks to their failed policy. And, like clockwork, the Washington Post found one American from Indiana who quit their job thanks to Obamacare. The new Democrat Motto – ‘Broke but Happy’

Scott Brown: Will he or won’t he

For the better part of a year, the most tantalizing question in New Hampshire politics has been: What the heck is Scott Brown up to? The former senator from Massachusetts seems to be popping up everywhere in the state he now claims as his home. He has appeared at Republican fundraisers, Lincoln Day dinners, county GOP gatherings and, most recently, shirtless across three columns of the front page of the Union Leader, the state’s largest newspaper. Brown was one of 600 people who plunged into the frigid Atlantic off Hampton Beach on Feb. 2 to raise money for the Special

In his angry New York Times piece from Friday in which he vehemently denied sexually abusing his adopted daughter, Dylan Farrow, more than 20 years-ago, Woody Allen also took the chance to address the parentage of Ronan Farrow. Last fall, Mia Farrow set tongues wagging across Hollywood when she hinted in a Vanity Fair article it was ´possible´ Ronan was in fact the son of singer Frank Sinatra and not Allen. In his Times piece, Allen seems willing to accept that Ronan is not his son - and then uses this possibility as a way to attack Mia Farrow´s fidelity towards him

NAACP requires marchers protesting North
Carolina voter ID law To Show Photo ID
Daily Caller, by Katie McHugh    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 2/9/2014 5:33:46 AM     Post Reply
North Carolinians marching to protest voter-ID laws must present a valid photo ID to participate in an NAACP-hosted protest against voter-ID laws in Raleigh on Saturday. The central claim among the protesters is that the voter-ID laws disenfranchise certain segments of the voting population, particularly minority voters and poor voters. According to official NAACP flyers passed out at the rally, protesters must carry the precise kind of ID that they would be expected to present at the voting booth. (Snip for graphic)The march, dubbed the “Moral March” by its leader Rev. William Barber II, who called for a “wave of

Better to keep your mouth shut and just appear to be a pedophile than open it and remove all doubt. Or most doubt anyway. I know, I know. We cannot say with certainty that filmmaker Woody Allen sexually assaulted his then-7-year-old adopted daughter Dylan Farrow two decades ago. But, in an apparent t*t-for-tat against that daughter, Woody Allen doesn’t just open his mouth but shoves his foot right in it. He’s written a loathsome and skin-crawling rebuttal to Dylan Farrow printed in the New York Times, his hometown paper. In it, he actually complains about paying child support. He presents Dylan as a manipulated

An outdated three-reel slot machine is drawing in bigger crowds than a Celine Dion show at Las Vegas casino MGM Grand. The Lion´s Share has failed to produce a single jackpot in almost 20 years, and has attracted a legion of dedicated gamblers who believe it´s going to pay out millions of dollars any day. The Lion´s Share is the lone survivor of a slew of $1 progressive slot machines from the early 1990s. According to Nevada law, slot machines are required to pay out 75 per cent of the money that goes in to them. Therefore, the Lion´s Share

ELKO, Nevada—Rodeo poet Paul Zarzyski can’t help grinning when he thinks of the National Poetry Gathering’s early days. In the late 1980s, the Elko Convention Center auditorium was filled to ranch folks on holiday and most of the cowboy poets were just off the range. Now finishing its 30th year, the poetry gathering has gained national prominence and a certain cache. It still draws its share of working buckaroos and ranch bosses, but take a seat at bars inside the Star Hotel Basque restaurant, the Pioneer Saloon or the venerable Stockman’s, and you’re as likely to strike up a conversation with

Dylan Farrow has responded to an op-ed Woody Allen published by The New York Times Friday. In the response, provided to The Hollywood Reporter, Farrow denounced Allen´s op-ed -- in which he suggested Farrow´s mother, Mia Farrow, had coached her to accuse Allen of sexually assaulting her as a child. "I have never wavered in describing what he did to me. I will carry the memories of surviving these experiences for the rest of my life," Farrow said. She went on to challenge other points in Allen´s op-ed, calling it ´the latest rehash of the same legalese, distortions, and outright lies he

The largest and most comprehensive study of bird collision deaths ever finds that nearly 1 billion birds die in building crashes every year, a shocking number that has fans of the feather creatures urging construction companies to use new materials to stop the annihilation. The mortality study from over 92,000 records found that between 365 million and 988 million birds crash and die in the United States. The number easily climbs over 1 billion when reports from Canada are included. Only cats are a bigger danger to birds, killing as many as 3 billion a year in the U.S. “Our

On May 12, 1992, Stan Greenberg and Celinda Lake, top pollsters for Bill Clinton’s presidential campaign, issued a confidential memo. The memo’s subject was “Research on Hillary Clinton.” Voters admired the strength of the Arkansas first couple, the pollsters wrote. However, “they also fear that only someone too politically ambitious, too strong, and too ruthless could survive such controversy so well.” Their conclusion: “What voters find slick in Bill Clinton, they find ruthless in Hillary.” The full memo is one of many previously unpublished documents contained in the archive of one of Hillary Clinton’s best friends and advisers, documents that

SAN ANTONIO — We recommend incumbent John Cornyn for the GOP´s U.S. Senate nomination, based on unmatched experience and decades of service to Texas. The theme among a bevy of challengers seems to be that Cornyn is a CINO, a conservative in name only. This is not just counter-intuitive but counter-factual. Various ratings — liberal and conservative — have agreed on one thing, Cornyn´s conservative credentials are genuine. Not conservative? Cornyn is No. 2 in Senate leadership and diverged only slightly from the conservative playbook in a year in which he offered a measure that would further beef up security at the

It was the perfect Christmas tableau at the Allen-Farrow household: There sat Mia and nine of her children around the dinner table. There were two turkeys, an abundance of side dishes, and in the middle, a carved angel. In came Woody Allen with a holiday greeting. “Pardon me while I puke,” he said, then went off to the kitchen to juice apples. Long before the scandals — Woody taking off with Mia’s adopted teen daughter Soon-Yi, Mia accusing Woody of molesting their 7-year-old daughter, Dylan — the Allen-Farrow family was regarded as the ultimate cosmopolitan clan, a multiracial brood of 11 children,

ASHINGTON — Michelle Obama says a gay University of Missouri football player is “an inspiration to all of us.” The first lady took to Twitter on Monday to comment on Michael Sam, the all-American college player who announced Sunday that he is gay. Mrs. Obama says she “couldn’t be prouder” of Sam’s courage, both on and off the field. The tweet was signed “-mo,” which is how the White House marks messages personally sent by the first lady. Sam could become the first openly homosexual player in the NFL. He’s scheduled to participate in the league’s weeklong scouting camp, where potential draftees

Democrats from President Obama on down have been touting Obamacare´s sign-up numbers. Even after the system´s disastrous rollout, they like to point out, roughly three million people have signed up for private insurance, while 6.3 million have signed up for Medicaid. "Already, because of the Affordable Care Act, more than nine million Americans have signed up for private health insurance or Medicaid coverage," Obama said in the State of the Union speech. "Nine million." (Snip) But there is strong new evidence to suggest the administration's claims are grossly exaggerated and deeply misleading. Obamacare is not doing nearly as well as the

BAGHDAD — A group of Sunni militants attending a suicide bombing training class at a camp north of Baghdad were killed on Monday when their commander unwittingly conducted a demonstration with a belt that was packed with explosives, army and police officials said. The militants belonged to a group known as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, which is fighting the Shiite-dominated army of the Iraqi government, mostly in Anbar Province. But they are also linked to bomb attacks elsewhere and other fighting that has thrown Iraq deeper into sectarian violence.

President Obama has broken many promises. One that he has not broken is his boast that he would "fundamentally transform America." He and his fellow Democrats are on the verge of doing just that by turning us into a nation of loafers. A loafer is an idle person who lives off others. Barack Obama seemingly has no problem with such people. He might even relate to them. He does have a serious problem with his own work ethic, and finds work boring.
