Sandra Fluke forgoes congressional
bid to run for state Senate

Los Angeles Times, by Seema Mehta

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 2/5/2014 8:34:25 AM

Democratic attorney and activist Sandra Fluke has decided against running for retiring Rep. Henry A. Waxman’s congressional seat, instead planning a bid for the state Senate. “I am extremely moved by the outpouring of local and national support I have received since I announced that I was considering running for office. My entire career has been devoted to the public interest, whether representing victims of human trafficking or advocating for working families,” Fluke said late Tuesday night. “I am committed to continuing that fight in Sacramento, working to protect our environment, ensure our access to health care, and create the jobs

Amazing what a Georgetown education will do fora career, and a corrupt democrat party.

As of yesterday she was running for Waxman´s seat. I wonder what really changed her mind? Did the California demoncrat committee laugh her out of the building?

Maybe somebody either (1) promised to buy her $9/month pills or (2) brought her an offer she couldn´t refuse, if youse gets my drift.

I´m betting on the latter.

One of the first things I learned about her was that she was not a 23-year-old coed but a 30-year-old activist who was finishing law school.

She was not admitted to the California bar until December 2012.

I have no idea when she moved to California.

We, you and I Sandra Fluke, are bankrupting and throwing out what is the best healthcare system in the world in favor of Marxist communism currently called democrat, progressive-ism, socialism, etc.

I think her plan was to run on her name recognition to keep it fresh and to build a war chest for when she would run for state office. I also think some folks in the Democratic Party had a little talk with her to butt out. So now she won´t have the limelight of the Waxman seat fight and will draw some attention to the state race.

Joe Biden warns that GOP

Washington Examiner, by Paul Bedard    Original Article

Vice President Joe Biden is warning his Democratic base to drop the apathy and pledge to vote in the fall midterms or see the administration´s achievements like Obamacare get sunk by a Republican majority in the House and Senate. He headlined his latest scare-mail “If we lose,” and warned that the GOP will pass the tough budget authored by Rep. Paul Ryan, and repeal Obamacare. “If Republicans hold on to their majority in the House and win back control of the Senate in November -- and believe me, that´s a real possibility -- then I can guarantee you that we´ll

Easter services today are expected to kick off a record-breaking week at the Vatican. Two beloved modern popes — John Paul II and John XXIII — are to be canonized at the Vatican next Sunday by Pope Francis. There will be services all week, which could draw the most pilgrims ever to the Catholic capital. John Paul II is remembered for helping to bring down communism and for inspiring a generation of Catholics. Many now call him “The Great,” only the fourth pope to have earned the moniker.

U.S. Attorney General Holder was clearly inferring racism especially given the room at the National Action Network which included one of America´s top race baiters, Al Sharpton. Democrats are pushing a racism narrative in a cynical, divisive election year political ploy. They want to paint Republicans as someone to run away from. In the last week we see a pattern of top Democrats playing the race card expertly as they always do. As reported in the Daily Caller On Wednesday afternoon, Attorney General Eric Holder threw out some thinly veiled race-hate, telling an audience that criticism of his contempt for Congress was “unprecedented,

About Michael Lewis’ Best-Seller

Michael Lewis’s latest best-seller, Flash Boys, released on March 31, depicts what he describes as the latest financial outrage in a “story of scandals… linked together tail to trunk like circus elephants.” This time it’s high-frequency trading, the use of algorithms and super-fast computing that allows stock trades to be executed automatically in a matter of milliseconds. Lewis argues that many high-frequency trading firms make money by essentially trading in front of large orders that they can see coming in before anyone else, thanks to super-fast data connections with stock exchanges. While many of the high-speed trading firms themselves are small and

Dozens of suspected al Qaeda fighters have been killed in the latest in a string of strikes against the terror organization’s Yemen affiliate over the weekend, Yemeni officials say, just days after the affiliate released a video of a large daytime militant rally. A Yemeni official with the Supreme Security Committee told ABC News overnight that on April 19, an American drone strike took out 10 members of al Qaeda but also killed three civilians who were nearby. The civilians “were in a pickup truck that suddenly appeared next to the car that was targeted,” the official said. The next day the

Obama Handles Russia Like Republicans:
Overpromise, Under-Deliver, and Write Off
National Journal, by Ron Fournier    Original Article

President Obama came to office nursing dreams "of forging a new partnership" with a stubborn rival. When times got tough, he abandoned the relationship and adopted dusty zero-sum gain policies of his predecessors. To allies and rivals alike, he looks naïve, weak, and disconnected. This is the portrait presented Sunday by Peter Baker in his front-page New York Times story titled, "In Cold War Echo, Obama Strategy Writes Off Putin." What struck me about the piece is the unstated parallel between Obama´s handling of Russia and Republicans, and how in both cases the gap between promise and performance illustrates a fundamental

Her first column, including the pros of smoking from a “tape pen,” made its debt on Thursday, the New York Post reported.

Scott Nielsen, an executive at the Bank of Utah, which according to FAA databases owns the plane, said that the executives had been trying to reach the real owners but “This is an overseas customer and they don’t operate under the same hours as we do.” Clients “can be an American they can not be one,” Nielsen said. “The service is used by all kinds of people for a

He stepped off in Burbank, Calif., and caught a ride to a sound stage, where his on-again, off-again political consigliere, Mike Murphy, was waiting to shoot a commercial on a set that bore more than a passing resemblance to the Oval Office. Looking and sounding like a president out of central casting, he nailed his lines.

ROME - Pope Francis washed the feet of 12 disabled and elderly people Thursday - women and non-Catholics among them - in a pre-Easter ritual designed to show his willingness to serve others like a "slave." Francis´ decision in 2013 to perform the Holy Thursday ritual on women and Muslim inmates at a juvenile detention center helped define his rule-breaking papacy just two weeks after his election. It riled traditionalist Catholics, who pointed to the Vatican´s own regulations that the ritual be performed only on men since Jesus´ 12 apostles were men.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House.

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

Perhaps the most remarkable feature of American democracy is the magnificent estate of public land that it reserved from the very beginning for the use of all citizens, rich or poor. There is nothing like it in the democracies of Europe, which came into being with nations already carved up into private fiefdoms. The Great Idea that hundreds of millions of acres of forests, deserts, rivers and prairies should be owned by, and managed for, the public interest has had a profound and lasting influence on American culture.

Growing up, Santangelo found she was always able to keep up with the guys and enjoyed playing hockey on all boys’ teams. But when she joined the Marines, Santangelo found the playing field changed; she was segregated into female-only training units and as a woman, was relegated to less strenuous physical training than her male counterparts.

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

Harry Reid isn’t backing down from his claim that rancher Cliven Bundy’s supporters are “domestic terrorists.” It’s astonishing rhetoric given the White House’s characterization of the mass shooting by a genuine terrorist, Major Nidal Hasan, who killed 13 Americans at the Fort Hood Army base after yelling “Allahu Akbar!” (God is great.) Rather than labeling Hasan’s actions “domestic terrorism,” the Obama administration is prosecuting him for having committed “workplace violence.” Democratic rhetoric is become ever more desperate and overheated as we approach the November midterm elections.

An unholy alliance between the Tea Party and the teachers’ unions threatens to derail the most promising education reform in decades. Like Rocky in the early rounds, the new Common Core math and reading standards are being pummeled left and right. From the left: Education icon Diane Ravitch says the Common Core represents a “utilitarian view of education” that is too focused on testing, data, and accountability. From the right, “ObamaCore” is denounced as federal intrusion. Heritage Foundation education fellow Lindsey Burke calls it “an effort to impose a uniform, standardized curriculum across the country.” From the further right, the always

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine. To help picture the future, Martin Vargic, an amateur graphic designer from Slovakia, has created a map depicting the planet with sea levels around 260ft (79m) higher than they are today. He imagines what Earth would look like if the ice sheets surrounding the North and South poles melted, releasing
