CLIMATE change is real and it is happening very fast. The climate of opinion, that is, regarding the rapidly imploding fantasies of the global warming alarmists.

House panel to explore
Internet sales tax
The Hill (Washington, D.C.), by Kate Tummarello    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 1/12/2014 8:10:44 PM     Post Reply
House Judiciary Committee Bob Goodlatte plans to hold a hearing in the first half of the year to explore online sales tax legislation, advocates say. Proponents of an Internet sales tax bill, such as major retailers, are holding out hope for action in the House in 2014 despite the opposition of many conservatives and the skeptical stance of Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio). Supporters and opponents of online sales tax proposals are focusing their lobbying energy on Goodlatte (R-Va.), who has released a set of seven principles that an online sales tax bill would have to meet in order to be considered by

Karl Rove: Chris Christie´s Bridge
Scandal Response Gives ´Street Cred´
with Tea Party
Breitbart´s Big Government, by Matthew Boyle    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 1/12/2014 8:09:13 PM     Post Reply
GOP establishment figure Karl Rove said on Fox News Sunday that the Fort Lee and George Washington Bridge scandal that New Jersey GOP Gov. Chris Christie is facing will end up giving him “street cred” with the Tea Party movement. “There will be reasons why conservatives have disagreements with Chris Christie,” Rove said during a panel discussion with Bob Woodward and Juan Williams about the scandal. I don´t think the Tea Party is going to seize upon Fort Lee and the George Washington Bridge as their defining difference with Christie. In fact, I think he´s handling to this [sic] – being straightforward,

Lone Survivor easily won the weekend box office, raking in a whopping $38.5 million in its first week in wide release. The flick, which is based on a true story about a Navy SEAL team´s mission gone wrong in Afghanistan, earned the second-largest January premiere in history behind Cloverfield´s $40 million in 2008. The Peter Berg directed movie stars Mark Wahlberg and originally bowed in two theaters over Christmas. Disney´s animated Frozen dropped to number two, earning less than half of what Lone Survivor made with $15.1 million, bringing its total gross to $317.7 million. Frozen has been in the top three every weekend

How to Fight Income
Inequality: Get Married
Wall Street Journal, by Ari Fleischer    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 1/12/2014 7:18:01 PM     Post Reply
If President Obama wants to reduce income inequality, he should focus less on redistributing income and more on fighting a major cause of modern poverty: the breakdown of the family. A man mostly raised by a single mother and his grandparents who defied the odds to become president of the United States is just the person to take up the cause. "Marriage inequality" should be at the center of any discussion of why some Americans prosper and others don´t. According to Census Bureau information analyzed by the Beverly LaHaye Institute, among families headed by two married parents in 2012, just 7.5%

Ted Cruz: President Obama runs America like

Morning News (Dallas, Tx), by Wayne Slater    Original Article

Sen. Ted Cruz compared America under President Obama to a corrupt dictatorship in which the chief executive decides which laws to follow and which to ignore. He cited the Obama administration delay of the employer mandate under the Affordable Health Care Act. He said the directive to ease deportation of immigrant parents and not to defend the federal ban on marijuana in states like Colorado and Washington that choose to legalize it were other examples of the president’s “consistent pattern of lawlessness.” “If the president of the United States can simply pick and choose which laws to follow… we know

   

 

  


 
How Sarah Palin became my new bestie

You can feel the charm when you watch her operate in person, that Sarah Palin. You don’t expect it, but it’s there – the awkward mix of pseudo-authenticity and charisma, the smooth way with a room full of reporters, the way she just carries on, regardless. Me, I was taken aback. She’s practically my new bestie, now. Squeezed my hand, called me “honey,” even stopped to squeeze my shoulder on her way out and thank me. We had a wee chat and a laugh.

While MSNBC has struggled mightily with scandalous outbursts from its hosts Alec Baldwin, Martin Bashir, and Melissa Harris-Perry, “Hardball” host Chris Matthews keeps pounding away at allegedly racist Republicans who want to “erase Obama from the history books.” On Thursday night’s “Hannity,” Sean Hannity asked MRC president Brent Bozell “why no scrutiny” for the wacky accusations of Matthews? He began his Tuesday night show wailing about the horrific consequences if Republicans advance in the 2014 midterms: MATTHEWS: ...a return to something like Jim Crow days, redolent of all the old anti-black gimmickry of that time -- literary tests and poll taxes all

Senate Democrats Block Amendment
to Restore Military Pensions

Senate Democrats on Thursday blocked a Republican attempt to restore military pensions cut in last month’s budget deal, denying a vote that would save up to $20 billion by closing a loophole that allows tax refunds to go to illegal aliens. Sen. Barbara Boxer (D., Calif.) called an effort by Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R., N.H.) to repeal the military retiree cuts “fiddling while Rome burns.” Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) “filled the amendment tree” on Thursday, ending debate and blocking any Republican amendments to a bill to extend unemployment insurance (UI) benefits. Among them was Ayotte’s measure, which would repeal cuts to

The mother of Trayvon Martin will participate in a University of Utah public discussion on Jan. 16 during a weeklong celebration of Martin Luther King Jr., KTVX-TV reports. Sybrina Fulton is scheduled to speak at the university´s Union Ballroom for the 30th annual Celebration of the Life and Legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. This year´s theme is "Beneath the Hoodie: A Look at Racial Profiling in America." Fulton´s son, a 17-year-old black Miami high-school student, was fatally shot in February 2012 by George Zimmerman. A jury in Seminole County acquitted Zimmerman in July of murder. The case stirred a national debate on

Food stamps at pot shops

DENVER -- Food stamps for a pot brownie? It´s an urban myth in Colorado, but state lawmakers want to make sure that doesn´t happen. A bill proposed this week by several Republicans would add marijuana dispensaries to liquor stores, gun shops and casinos as places where recipients of public assistance payments and food stamps can´t use their electronic benefits cards to access cash. There haven´t been any reports of public EBT cards being used at marijuana dispensaries. But lawmakers say pot shops should be added to the law to make clear it´s not legal.

Feminist Film: Violence Caused
by (Surprise!) Masculinity
Newsbusters, by Kristine Marsh    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 1/11/2014 6:20:05 AM     Post Reply
BREAKING: Despite skinny jeans, mocha latte and Chris Hayes, U.S. males still haven’t been adequately feminized. The tragic result: continued bloodshed in American society. That’s the gist of a new documentary called “The Mask You Live In,” by feminist filmmaker Jennifer Siebel Newsom. The focus of “The Mask” is the male population’s place in and relationship to American culture. Predictably, judging from the trailer and the film’s enthusiastic reception in left-leaning media, traditional masculinity is a leading cause of murder and mayhem. The trailer opens with commonly heard “macho” phrases like, “Be a man,” “Man up,” and “Don’t be weak,” as taken

He was also musically gifted. But he couldn´t stop smoking weed. The school and his parents did all they could; he even took up sports so he wouldn´t go home after school and smoke.

The pizza arrived, steaming and delectable, a smoked-mozzarella-and-sausage pie presented to Mayor Bill de Blasio like a gilded offering to a visiting caliph. The mayor, on a pilgrimage on Friday to Goodfellas, a venerable Staten Island pizzeria, smiled, nodded at his slice and then proceeded to do the unthinkable: eat it with a knife and fork. Cue the foodie firestorm. “Disaster,” declared a writer at New York magazine, citing the longstanding city protocol of devouring pizza, no matter how greasy, with the hands, and the hands only. One website called it Mr. de Blasio’s first mistake as mayor.

Every night’s going to be Halloween night for Hillary. The skeletons in her closet are signing up now for the conga line. They’re impatient to put on their dancing shoes for the 2016 presidential campaign. Like it or not, it’s just around the corner. Even when her friends try to raise their voices in Hillary’s defense, what comes out is mostly static. The attempted whitewash by The New York Times of the hash she made of Benghazi only reminds everyone that she was asleep when the telephone rang at 3 o’clock in the morning. Robert M.

Hi, everybody. Yesterday, we learned that in 2013, our businesses created 2.2 million new jobs — including 87,000 last month. Our unemployment rate is the lowest it has been since October 2008. And across our broader economy, there are signs of progress. [Snip] We’ve cut our deficits by more than half. Thanks to the hard work and sacrifice of the American people, our economy is growing stronger. But we know we’ve got more work to do together. It depends on the success of the American people. It depends on your ability to make ends meet and provide for your families.

Why Bridgegate made headlines

Most government scandals involve the manipulation of the system in obscure ways by people no one has ever heard of. That is why George Washington Bridgegate is nearly a perfect scandal — because it is comprehensible and (as they say in Hollywood) “relatable” to everyone who has ever been in a car. This is the reason this one is not going to go away so easily, even if one accepts the contention that Gov. Chris Christie had nothing whatsoever to do with it.(snip)Journalists know the Obamans. Intimately. They know them from college, they know them from work, they know them

A violent ex-con has been charged with multiple counts in the road rage shooting death of a 21-year-old female Georgia college student. Sparkles Lindsay, 22, followed Kimberly Kilgore, 21, into her gated apartment complex last year and shot her to death while her best friend sat in the passenger seat and watched in horror, police say. Ms Lindsay faces a charge of malice murder, two counts of felony murder, aggravated assault, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, and possession of a firearm during commission of a felony, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Hillary Clinton warns in a new book that the “clock is turning back” on women across America and offers a passionate argument for prioritizing the advancement of women and girls. Clinton, the former secretary of state and possible presidential contender, is one of a slew of high-profile contributors to a new report set to be released Sunday compiled by author and activist Maria Shriver and the liberal Center for American Progress. “[Fighting] to give women and girls a fighting chance isn’t just a nice thing to do,” Clinton writes in “The Shriver Report: A woman’s nation pushes back from the

And five years after she moved into the White House, the nation pays rapt attention to her every move, from her Let’s Move! program to curb childhood obesity to her hair and her outfits. Of turning 50, the first lady says she’s “never felt more confident.” When asked about her thoughts on the landmark in her Parade, August 18, 2013 cover interview, she replied: “What you learn is that each decade brings a new set of challenges but also a new set of possibilities.

Earlier this week, there was a spring in conservatives’ step. That was because Chris Christie was in deep doo-doo. His career seemed to be imploding, over Bridgegate. Conservatives hadn’t been so happy since the Obamacare rollout (which wasn’t that long ago). The end of Christie’s career would not be a good thing — for New Jersey, for the Republican party, for conservatism, or for the country. He is a valuable conservative, one of the most talented politicians in America. We are lucky to have him on our side — general side. Lately, I have been more and more impatient with 100-percenters —

Chris Christie took the first step in damage control Thursday by apologizing and announcing he was firing two of his closest aides connected to a scheme to jam up traffic on the George Washington Bridge. But despite a textbook press conference, his longer-term political problem is likely to be from his own party, where the scandal is giving a legion of under-the-radar Christie skeptics room to criticize the governor.Christie´s base has always been his New Jersey inner circle and Wall Street donors enthused over his electability and pragmatic approach to governance. By contrast, Christie never engendered deep support among Washington
