Iran Nuke Deal Exposes U.S.
War Fatigue Under Obama

Investor´s Business Daily, by Editorial

Original Article

National Security: "Moderate" Iran President Hassan Rouhani wasted no time crowing that the world had surrendered to Iran in the Geneva nuclear deal. No surprise, especially when talk becomes America´s preferred weapon. Maj. Gen. Ataollah Salehi, Iran army commander, observed on Tuesday that the peace deal between America and other major powers and Iran proves the U.S. and Israel can´t beat Iran militarily, because, if they could have, they "would have already taken action." "Given their weakness in the military dimension, they have opted for the political arena, and we will certainly succeed in this area too," he said. The general makes a

Christie And Obama’s Lame Duckism
National Review Online, by Jonah Goldberg    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 1/14/2014 6:07:00 PM     Post Reply
One un- or under-remarked-upon takeaways from the Christie spectacle is the fact that he is the most exciting figure in American politics for the moment, at least in the eyes of the mainstream media. Indeed, as I joked on Twitter, you have to wonder if Obama doesn’t feel a pang of jealousy for Christie. When was the last time the media dropped everything to listen to an Obama speech with such interest? No one hangs on his every word any more. Obama’s State of the Union address will of course get ample coverage, but it will be more pro-forma than

The omnibus spending bill before Congress continues to fund U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) advertising programs for food stamps in foreign countries like Mexico, Breitbart News has learned. The bill was hashed out between House Appropriations Committee chairman Rep. Hal Rogers (R-KY) and Senate Appropriations Committee chairwoman Sen. Barbara Mikulski (D-MD). The funding will continue despite claims in a document the House Appropriations Committee published that the bill contains a “prohibition” on such programs. Page three of this press document states regarding food stamps that the omnibus spending bill contains a "prohibition on advertisements or outreach with foreign governments." The entire paragraph

Iran’s “moderate” “reformer” president Hassan Rouhani – i.e., the front man for the Islamic-supremacist dictatorship run by Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and the IRGC . . . or, as they say at the State Department, Tehran’s “democratically elected” leader – has taken to Twitter to boast of the West’s “surrender” in the ongoing . . . and going . . . and going . . . nuclear talks.

Lisa Bonchek Adams is currently hospitalized and being treated for Stage IV breast cancer. Since her diagnosis in October of 2012 at the age of 37, this mother of three has been blogging and tweeting about what she has been through mentally, personally, physically, and medically. For a chilling and revealing reason, former New York Times editor Bill Keller has a big problem with this. First it was Keller´s wife Emma Keller who on January 8 went after Adams in the left-wing Guardian with a piece titled, “Forget funeral selfies. What are the ethics of tweeting a terminal illness?” Because Mrs.

Oh goody: White House senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer sent an e-mail early Tuesday to preview President Obama’s plan to use his executive power in ways Americans have never seen before. “President Obama has a resolution for 2014: That this will be a year of action,” Pfeiffer said in the e-mail, pointing out that Obama would no longer be waiting around for Congress to get things done. “Instead, the president will use his executive authority, both his pen and his phone, to work with anyone to get things done — whether they be leaders in business, education, Congress, states, or local communities,” he said.

GOP leader reveals strategy

The GOP’s leadership will try to persuade GOP legislators to back an immigration plan that includes tighter enforcement, an effective amnesty for 12 million people and more immigrant workers, according to House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte. “We’re trying to find a way to give the members of the House a way to see how all these things would work in our step by step approach. … Finding a way to build that consensus is critical,” Goodlatte told an interviewer Sunday on the Spanish-language Telemundo network. But Goodlatte acknowledged deep GOP opposition to the plan, and indicated that the leadership won’t push

Omnibus Spending Bill

The $1.1 trillion omnibus spending bill introduced Monday evening leaves the vast majority of pension cuts to military retirees intact, only exempting disabled veterans from the controversial provision included in last month’s budget deal. The spending bill amends a section of the bipartisan budget agreement that hit the military with reduced retirement pay, while also leaving generous benefits for civilian federal retirees untouched. The new spending bill, negotiated by House Appropriations Committee Chairman Hal Rogers (R., Ky.) and Chairwoman of the Senate Appropriations Committee Barbara Mikulski (D., Md.), would only restore retirement benefits for 17.5 percent of military retirees.

Crime study: Handguns, not ´assault

Media hype about mass shootings in America has fostered a myth that the killings are on the rise and that an assault weapon ban, expanded background checks and greater attention to the mentally ill will curb a rampaging epidemic, according to an authoritative and exhaustive study by a noted criminologist. Instead, according to James Alan Fox, author and criminology professor at Northeastern University, mass shootings have remained stagnant over 34 years, averaging 20 a year, and few were committed by the type of berserk psychos portrayed by the media. “Public discourse is grounded in myth and misunderstanding about the nature of the

Comedians Sarah Silverman, Zach Galifianakis and others are scheduled to appear for an evening of comedy and music Sunday to raise funds for Texas abortions. The event, titled “A Night of A Thousand Vaginas!” will take place at the Largo at the Coronet in Los Angeles and is being billed as an “emergency benefit to help Texas women” who have been affected by Texas’ new abortion restrictions passed in the state over the summer. The evening is set to feature comedians Silverman, Galifianakis, Steve Agee, Jen Kirkman, Tiffany Haddish, and musician Josh Homme of the Queens of the Stone Age. Laura Kightlinger

President Obama said he could relate to the National Basketball Association Champion Miami Heat, as the squad visited the White House Tuesday. “Sometimes, it feels like they’re still fighting for a little respect — I can relate to that,” Obama said. LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and company made the trip to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. for the second straight year, an annual pilgrImage for the NBA champions. The Heat bested the San Antonio Spurs in a seven game series in last year’s NBA finals. Obama, a Chicago Bulls fan, said he would root for the Heat except when they played his hometown team.

Black dogs don´t get as adopted as easily as others animals of other colors. The reason is largely because of some common misconceptions about them. Black dogs are mischaracterized as mean and potentially violent and according to NBC News. Black Dog Syndrome is a phenomenon in which dogs with black fur often go unadopted because of misinformed stereotypes. Black dogs are are euthanized at a much higher rate than dogs with different complexions. Many owners of black dogs say they are sweet, lovable, but also unwanted. The chances of being adopted are poor if you´re a black dog.

Only days after we learned the Obama administration had appointed an Obama donor to head investigations into the IRS targeting of conservative organizations, we now have a leak from law enforcement saying the FBI doesn’t expect to file criminal charges. That’s the gist of a late-breaking story Monday evening in The Wall Street Journal. The story notes that though the investigation may go on another few months, unless other evidence is unearthed, the FBI conclusion will be that the IRS was a “mismanaged bureaucracy” enforcing rules “ it didn’t understand.” Without the evidence, we’re not in a position to say. But criminal

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee wants to ban the term "RINO" -- "Republican in Name Only" -- in the Republican Party. The former governor complained in a letter to supporters that during a recent social media outreach, he was disturbed that too many Republicans were attacking each other and calling them names. "Many of you used a term that I’d like to see outlawed from the vernacular of the party: RINO," he said, calling it a "pejorative term" that questioned one´s purity. Huckabee pointed out that he got a tweet from someone who complained that he was a RINO, which upset him. "With all

In 1994 or early 1995 the still unknown Barack Obama sent his editor at Times Books, Henry Ferris, the first two-thirds of his memoir Dreams from My Father. He told Ferris that to complete the book, he had to return to Kenya to do some research. The evidence strongly suggests that Obama went not to Kenya to do that research but to the local library to do some borderline plagiarizing. In the way of background, Barack and Michelle Obama visited Kenya in the summer of 1992 and married in October of that year. There is little dispute about the timing of

Washington - Just days after dismissing two top advisers for their roles in the George Washington Bridge scandal, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is facing questions over the use of Superstorm Sandy relief funds. CNN has learned that federal officials are investigating whether Christie improperly used those relief funds to produce tourism ads that starred him and his family. The news couldn´t come at a worse time for the scandal-plagued Republican, who is facing two probes into whether his staff tied up traffic near the country´s busiest bridge to punish a Democratic mayor who refused to endorse his successful re-election bid.

Before Chris Christie’s first scandal devolves into an obsessive quest to prove who knew what, when, it’s worth pausing to appreciate the wonderful, quintessential New Jerseyness of the incident itself. What happened, roughly, is this. On August 13, Bridget Anne Kelly, one of Christie’s three deputy chiefs of staff, sent an email to David Wildstein, a Christie confidant serving as an executive for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which controls much of the transit infrastructure of northern Jersey. Kelly said that it was “time for some traffic problems in Fort Lee.” Some speculate that the precipitating

Minutes after the American consulate in Benghazi came under assault on Sept. 11, 2012, the nation´s top civilian and uniformed defense officials -- headed for a previously scheduled Oval Office session with President Obama -- were informed that the event was a "terrorist attack," declassified documents show. The new evidence raises the question of why the top military men, one of whom was a member of the president´s Cabinet, allowed him and other senior Obama administration officials to press a false narrative of the Benghazi attacks for two weeks afterward.

The case of Jahi McMath brings up numerous critical bioethical issues, especially as we are going into period of health care rationing and fewer choices in our medical care.(snip) In the wake of early enthusiasm for heart transplantation, "brain death" legislation was passed in the 1970´s in all fifty states in the USA, to allow for death to be declared by neurological criteria, rather than the cessation of cardiac activity. This permits surgeons to remove hearts from "brain dead" donors and not be charged with homicide. Despite claims that there has never been a case of a person diagnosed with

On Monday, the Supreme Court heard arguments regarding whether President Barack Obama´s appointments to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) are unconstitutional. The case will probably be a lopsided defeat for the president, with his own Supreme Court appointees expressing deep skepticism of the Justice Department´s arguments. If the Court goes the route it signaled during argument, all the rulings and regulations from that powerful body over a period of a couple years will be declared illegal, at least temporarily until a new Board can reconsider them. For decades, presidents of both parties have strayed from the limits of the

WASHINGTON — Calling for “all hands on deck” to assist the economy, President Barack Obama is urging his Cabinet to identify ways to keep his administration relevant to people struggling in the up-and-down recovery. With two weeks left before delivering an economy-focused State of the Union address to Congress, Obama is picking up the pace of his jobs message and demonstrating how he can advance his economic agenda administratively and through his ability to coax action from important interest groups. “We’re not just going to be waiting for legislation in order to make sure that we’re providing Americans the kind of help
