Citing Paul Revere, Edward Snowden, Obama
vows spy reforms; Should we trust him?

Investor´s Business Daily, by Andrew Malcolm

Original Article

Posted By:SurferLad, 1/17/2014 6:09:38 PM

What a difference a few months makes in our president. When a nobody named Edward Snowden wrapped himself in righteous robes last year to begin betraying his country by disclosing U.S. security operations while visiting its two worst strategic opponents, Barack Obama dismissed him as a mere hacker unworthy of presidential comment.[Snip] But today, the 44th president felt compelled to deliver a 5,500 word response to that hired hacker who´s so devoted to open democracy he´s taken shelter in Russia under the wily wing of a former intelligence officer systematically closing down that nascent democracy.

Rhetorical question, of course.

No.

When has he ever told the truth?

That was one very long speech, he even mentioned the previous administration who he seemed to claim set up the cyber spying operations, and associated MLK as a victim of past US spying. No telling what will become of all this, most likely it will turn into one big shell game.

Snowden is a big time traitor who needs to become the subject of a 007 type operation.

I didn´t finish the article. I´m not willing to agree that E. Snowden is a traitor to his country: I maintain he´s done the American citizens a great service.

I would wager most whom disagree with me, now practice more caution when talking on their phones, or composing e-mails, because of Snowden´s ´leaks´.

That´s easy. NO! He does not tell the truth. I think something is afoot. He talked too long and said too much yet not enough and not the truth. What are they afraid of? He even talked about America´s founding fathers and fighting Communism, and just went on and on. He must have a new writer who knows a little about history. He has never brought up freedoms and privacy before. He is just pulling the wool over us. The truth will out soon.

Look, the smart money is on NOT trying to slide into home on Snowden´s back, or offering up oblations to Obama.

Neither one of these guys have OUR interests at heart.

Snowden did a huge service to the American people by exposing how government-run agencies were spying on ordinary, law-abiding citizens. Obama´s "spy reforms" are simply a political ploy designed to make it look as if Obama is addressing the concerns of the American people.

As long as telephone companies produce meta data (used to send you phone bills) that stuff is always going to be there to be tapped into by intelligence agencies all over the world ~ kicking out NSA and leaving the Russians, Chicoms and Germans unmolested is probably not a wise solution.

Unless you are a Chicom, German or Russian agent ~ and we probably have some of those in Congress already.

Obama dismissed Snowdon but now Snowdon has the upper hand over Obama. The main reason for this is Obama has squandered his credibility with his constant lying. His assurances fall on deaf ears.

The impending death of Archie

Investor´s Business Daily, by Andrew Malcolm    Original Article

Hate to break the news to you, but our old pal Archie Andrews is doomed. After 73 years of not looking a day over 17, the long-running all-American symbol of wholesomeness and teen goodness is set to die in July, according to Archie Comics. He´ll go out good, saving someone. Which is swell. But is this really necessary in a soiled age of cynicism, non-heroes and non-role models, lying leaders and downright criminals? It's already hard enough being a parent with all the unwholesome temptations at hand. Must we inevitably give up every enduring symbol of hope and good and fun for a one-month publicity splash?

GOP: Not just equal pay,

There was plenty of talk in Washington this week about equal pay. The thing is — it was just that: more talk. As a woman who worked at McDonald’s to get through college…. as the mom of two young daughters … and as the elected representative of thousands of hardworking women, I have always supported equal pay for equal work. And if a woman is being paid less than a man because of gender discrimination, that is both wrong and against the law. The protections provided to women and others in the Equal Pay Act must be enforced to make certain there is no pay disparity because of discrimination.

Hi, everybody. Earlier this week was Equal Pay Day. It marks the extra time the average woman has to work into a new year to earn what a man earned the year before. You see, the average woman who works full-time in America earns less than a man — even when she’s in the same profession and has the same education. That´s wrong. In 2014, it’s an embarrassment. Women deserve equal pay for equal work. This is an economic issue that affects all of us. Women make up about half our workforce. And more and more, they’re our families’ main breadwinners. So it’s good for everyone when women are paid fairly.

It was really just a matter of time until Kathleen Sebelius was looking up at the Obama bus passing over her bureaucratic body. On April Fool´s Day when President Obama attempted his ObamaCare victory lap with unsubstantiated enrollment numbers and failed to mention Sebelius even once, her fate was sealed.Obama is not known as Mr. Gratitude by anyone. But staring right at Sebelius in the front row of the Rose Garden and praising only Nancy Pelosi and Dick Durbin, of all people, for the trumped-up success of ObamaCare and not even mentioning his Health and Human Services secretary after five years of tough, loyal duty was

President Obama and wife Michelle are back on the road again, this time in Texas to harvest more Democrat dollars for the looming November midterm election. The previously-scheduled fundraising foray was tacked onto Obama´s memorial speech Wednesday at Fort Hood in Killeen, Texas. Why let a nationally-televised shooting memorial go to waste when you can use such an official activity to cut the Democratic Party´s cost of political transportation on Air Force One for two fundraisers in Houston and another one today in Austin?

For many years whenever the president nears any crowd, a Secret Service agent walks ahead along the rope line ordering everyone to keep hands out of their pockets where agents can see them. That´s less of a problem these days. Because the hands of most everyone in such locations are holding cellphones to take photos of the nearby celebrity. And if there´s a campaign underway requiring the politician to ingratiate himself, possibly a selfie with the big guy himself. It's priceless political PR -- and free. Recently during the Boston Red Sox' White House visit, pitcher David Ortiz took a selfie with President Obama, whose grin could not have

The American media endure a soiled reputation in the United States these days. Rightly so too often. Many of its members failed their sentry duty during the run-up to the 2008 presidential elections, and oftentimes since covering only selectively positive parts of Barack Obama´s reign of error. Today´s column reminds us there is media and then there is media. Anja Niedringhaus was a member of the other media. A photojournalist for the Associated Press, she covered conflict for 20-plus years from the Balkans and Libya to Kuwait and Afghanistan. She´s dead now.

Hi, I’m U.S. Senator Tim Scott from the great state of South Carolina. As we all know, the most important issue facing our nation today is job creation. Unfortunately, it’s been that way for the last six years. But instead of tackling the causes of unemployment and underemployment, too many politicians are focused only on the effects and on making political points.

Hi, everybody. Today, our economy is growing and our businesses are consistently generating new jobs. But decades-long trends still threaten the middle class. While those at the top are doing better than ever, too many Americans are working harder than ever, but feel like they can’t get ahead. That’s why the budget I sent Congress earlier this year is built on the idea of opportunity for all.

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) is now accusing the Keystone pipeline of being a cancer risk. Her first point was that the pipeline “will bring 830,000 barrels of dirty tar sands oil into our nation every day.” She then segued to point #2 by asserting that the heavy tar sands oil will put people who live near refineries at risk for cancer: Significantly higher levels of dangerous air pollutants and carcinogens have been documented downwind from tar sands refineries, and in these areas people are suffering higher rates of the types of cancers linked to these toxic chemicals, including leukemia and

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev.

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM.

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi. In fact, Cruz’s office confirms he hasn’t endorsed anyone in the primaries. He may weigh in after the primaries. Rand Paul has endorsed two very establishment

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911. The thieves then all bolt outside and escape in a waiting SUV. The incident occurred at the Valencia Town Center mall, in Santa Clarita, at 3 p.m. on

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving
