Rep. Donna Edwards Weirds
Out Washington

U.S. News & World Report, by Nikki Schwab

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 2/7/2014 8:45:23 AM

If there were superlatives doled out for the comedic performances at Wednesday night’s Washington Press Club Foundation annual dinner, the “most awkward” distinction would go to Rep. Donna Edwards, D-Md. Edwards, this year’s Democratic comedy keynote, started out strong with a “Scandal” parody. She was Kerry Washington’s character Olivia Pope. The American president was the “Scandal” president Fitzgerald Grant. And the other man, House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), made for a scandalous love triangle. The spoof was inspired by a real life photo of Edwards “kissing” Boehner during the Congressional Women’s baseball game. But then the Maryland Democrat decided to

As usual, the Democrat, in this case Edwards, was tacky and hostile, while the Republican, in this case Flake, was classy and appropriate.

Obama the activist
Boston Herald, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 2/23/2014 3:08:36 PM     Post Reply
President Obama, like Secretary of State John Kerry, worships at the Church of Global Warming but chooses a different form of grandstanding to profess his faith. In a speech at a Maryland supermarket warehouse, Obama said he was using his authority to direct the Transportation Department and the Environmental Protection Agency to tighten fuel economy standards for trucks as a measure to reduce emissions of carbon dioxide, the chief alleged earth-warming gas. He clearly intended to be seen as going around a stalemated Congress. Big whoop. This is a little like the rooster claiming credit for the sunrise. Congress long ago

"Beware the Ides of March,” the soothsayer warned in Shakespeare’s play “Julius Caesar.” A Roman religious holiday, the Ides (15th) of March was the day on which Roman consuls assumed office — and the day Caesar was assassinated. For the United States, and the world economy, the Ides will be around March 4 this year, predicted Grady Means in October 2012. Mr. Means isn’t a doomsayer who’s predicted 11 of the last two recessions. He isn’t trying to sell gold, silver or freeze-dried food. He was managing partner of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP, an assistant to Vice President Nelson Rockefeller and wrote

   

 

  


 
NBC’s David Gregory Plays Nice
With Susan Rice On Benghazi
Newsbusters, by Jeffrey Meyer    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 2/23/2014 2:41:49 PM     Post Reply
For the first time since her infamous 2012 interview, National Security Advisor Susan Rice appeared on Meet the Press on Sunday February 23 to discuss a variety of foreign policy issues, most noticeably Benghazi. Throughout the interview, which focused primarily on the recent violent protests in Ukraine, host David Gregory provided Rice with a variety of softball questions on Benghazi, and allowed her to push White House talking points without any significant pushback. During the exchange on Benghazi, the word terrorism was not mentioned once, and Gregory seemed more concerned with allowing Rice to fix her disastrous appearance in 2012 than to

Following Meet the Press host David Gregory’s softball interview with former Ambassador Susan Rice, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews rushed to defend Ms. Rice from criticism surrounding the terrorist attack in Benghazi. Appearing as a panelist on the Sunday show, Matthews eagerly asked Gregory if he could defend Ambassador Rice before pushing the White House talking point that “it was a copycat situation Benghazi, came out of what happened in Cairo – which itself probably came out of that crazy movie out of Los Angeles.” [See video below.] As Matthews doubled down on his over-the-top defense of Ms. Rice, the MSNBC host

(Video) President Bush is front and center in the news this week, a position he hasn’t frequently occupied since leaving office five years ago, stepping back into the spotlight to shine a spotlight of his own on post-9/11 veterans and his fight to take the “Disorder” out of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. “We’re getting rid of the D,” he said. “PTS is an injury; it’s not a disorder. The problem is when you call it a disorder, [veterans] don’t think they can be treated. “An employer says, ‘I don’t want to hire somebody with a disorder.’ And so our mission tomorrow

National Security Adviser Susan Rice said Sunday she has no regrets over what she told the American public about the 2012 Benghazi terror attacks in the immediate aftermath of the deadly strikes. Rice did a round of Sunday TV interviews a few days after the attacks, in which some of the information she gave was later proven incorrect. “What I said to you that morning, and what I did every day since, was to share the best information that we had at the time,” Rice told NBC´s “Meet the Press” moderator David Gregory on Sunday. “The information I provided …

On Face the Nation Sunday morning, Senator John McCain (R-AZ) literally laughed off National Security Advisor Susan Rice’s statement earlier on Meet the Press that she did not intentionally mislead in her September 2012 appearance on the Sunday shows in which she claimed that the Benghazi attack had been in part a “spontaneous response” to an anti-Islam video. “I’m almost speechless,” McCain told host Bob Schieffer. “It’s patently obvious, first of all, that Susan Rice had no reason to be on the program, she had no involvement in it. Second of all, she read talking points, that we are now

NFL Ban on Off-Duty Officers Carrying
Guns in Stadiums Invalid in Texas
Breitbart Sports, by AWR Hawkins    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 2/23/2014 9:38:21 AM     Post Reply
The NFL´s ban on allowing off-duty police officers to carry guns into stadiums has at least two exceptions--the two NFL stadiums in Texas. According to CBS DFW, "Texas state law overrides the NFL policy. As long as officers attending the game check in at a specific gate and inform Security where they are sitting, they can have their gun." This exception to the NFL´s gun ban will apply to the Dallas Cowboys´ AT&T Stadium in Arlington and the Houston Texans´ Reliant Stadium. The Dallas Police Association´s Ron Pinkston agrees with the Texas law: "Our officers are 24/7, on or off

Drag a Hundred Dollar Bill

James Carville once shockingly demonstrated the left´s disdain for the morals of the poor, saying, "Drag a hundred-dollar bill through a trailer park, you never know what you´ll find." In truth, you can buy whatever you want much more easily if you drag that bill through a School of Journalism. CNS reports that George Soros has seeded such schools at the University of Southern California and the University of Wisconsin to create shock troops for the now shelved FCC plan to monitor (bully) the media into acting as even bigger megaphones for the administration and Democratic Party than they already

U.S. reacts cautiously to Ukraine upheaval

WASHINGTON — Only a few weeks ago, the turmoil in Ukraine seemed like a remote conflict in which Washington had little at stake and not a great deal of leverage. Now, however, it is clear that the apparent collapse of the old order in Ukraine could leave the Obama administration with a mess it cannot ignore. The challenges that could soon face the White House include a Yugoslavia-style civil war, an expensive economic bailout and further damage to its strained but crucial relationship with Moscow. Accordingly, the administration reacted cautiously Saturday to the departure of President Viktor Yanukovich from the

Kerry Kennedy may agree to a plea deal over driving while drugged charges stemming from a 2012 accident so she can continue her extensive human rights work. Kennedy, 54, is afraid a conviction would bring with it restrictions that would curtail her international travels – she has visited several dozen countries on humanitarian missions. The plea deal was previously discussed between her legal team and prosecutors before being shelved, but her attorneys have brought it back to the table with her trial slated to start Monday, according to the New York Daily News.

The NFL may penalize players 15 yards for racial and homophobic slurs and eject them from the game after a second offense. John Wooten, the head of the Fritz Pollard Alliance, a group that monitors diversity, told ESPN that he "expects the league to institute a rule where players would be penalized 15 yards for using the N-word on the field." Baltimore Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome "said the committee talked about other slurs coming under any possible new rule, including homophobic slurs."

Julie Boonstra, a cancer patient who was kicked of off her health plan due to Obamacare, lashed out at Rep. Gary Peters (D., Mich.) on Saturday after lawyers for his campaign demanded that Michigan broadcasters cease airing ads featuring her story. Boonstra, a Michigan resident, was diagnosed with leukemia five years ago. She was recently kicked off of her healthcare plan due to regulations passed as part of President Barack Obama’s Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, which Peters voted in favor of. After relating her story publicly in an ad produced by the advocacy group Americans for Prosperity (AFP), Peters dispatched

In a watershed moment and a huge victory over environmentalists, General Electric has agreed to stop projects that are designed solely for the purpose of carbon dioxide reductions to please those who lobby for climate change concessions. The National Center for Public Policy Research, a non-partisan, free-market, independent conservative think-tank which has been fighting GE for years because of GE’s liberal bias under CEO Jeffrey Immelt, scored a huge victory after receiving the commitment from General Electric. Late in 2013, the National Center submitted a shareholder proposal as part of GE´s 2014 proxy statement and annual meeting materials. The proposal: ...request[ed] that the

Self-described ´Maverick´ Senator John McCain is making waves with his defeatist statements about how formidable Hillary Rodham Clinton will be as a presidential candidate, predicting that she would win if the 2016 election were held in 2014. ´I would bet, my friend, as much as I hate to admit it,´ McCain told Piers Morgan during his Thursday night CNN broadcast, ´that right now – this is why we have campaigns – but right now, if the election were tomorrow, Hillary Clinton would most likely be the president of the United States.´ The Arizona pol and 2008 Republican presidential nominee was

Conservatives have had it up to here (hand to top of forehead) with Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.). Having barely recovered from the Cruz-induced shutdown and the calamitous backlash against Republicans, the GOP had to endure another episode of Cruzian grandstanding and the post-grandstanding trash talk. Mona Charen of National Review (stocked with many Cruz admirers) writes that it is “particularly galling to see that rather than train his fire at Obama and the liberal machine that cocoons him, Cruz has become a one-man wrecking ball against Republicans.” At issue was his stunt on the debt limit in which he denied the

Four United States Senators have a written a letter to FBI director James Comey about the indictment of author and filmmaker Dinesh D´Souza. Senators Charles Grassley, ranking member of the Judiciary Committee, Jeff Sessions, Ted Cruz, and Mike Lee are the four senators, all Republicans, to have signed the letter. The letter quotes Harvard Law School professor Alan Dershowitz as saying, "I can´t help but think that [D´Souza´s] politics have something to do with it. ... It smacks of selective prosecution." And, the senators write, "To dispel this sort of public perception that Mr. D´Souza may have been targeted because

There is now little doubt that the Girl Scout cookie boycott is having an effect on cookie sales this year. Girl Scout spokesman Kelly Parisi went on The O’Reilly Factor this week to try and defuse the mounting controversy, and Girl Scout executives have sent threatening letters to their critics. Girl Scout CEO Anna Marie Chavez took to YouTube on Thursday to deny all charges leveled by the boycotters and to deny at least one charge they haven’t even made. “Recently, various individuals and organizations announced their intention to boycott GS cookies this year, based on mistaken beliefs about our

Something is seriously wrong with Michelle Obama. Pitching ObamaCare on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Mrs. Obama called young adults "knuckleheads." The first lady openly mocked the 18- to 29-year-olds who catapulted her husband into the White House in 2008 and 2012. Fallon: Because a lot of young people watch our show. Would you like to tell me - why would they...? Because a lot people don´t have the money to spend on this.

President Obama’s stimulus may have boosted the economy when it passed in 2009, but it’s now beginning to take a toll and will soon begin to leave the economy worse off than if it had never passed, according to a new report Friday by the Congressional Budget Office. Mr. Obama signed the stimulus into law five years ago this week, vowing it would help rescue the economy from its post-Wall Street collapse tailspin, and saying it would save millions of jobs. The CBO said it’s been successful at that, helping sustain between 700,000 and 3.6 million jobs at its peak

The University of Notre Dame must provide birth control to employees and students after a federal appeals court ruled Friday, a move the school says will force it to violate its religious beliefs. In a blow to religious colleges and universities across the country, the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago denied Notre Dame´s request for an injunction to the ObamaCare birth control mandate that requires the school to provide coverage for contraception. The injunction would have given Notre Dame a temporary reprieve from the birth control mandate, as the Roman Catholic school challenges the rule in court.

According to literary agent Andrew Wylie, President Obama’s post-White House memoir could fetch an advance of up to $20 million . First lady Michelle Obama’s memoir, which she has apparently already started, could bring in an additional $12 million — not a bad nest egg for their golden years. Presidents have long relied on memoirs to secure their financial futures. Calvin Coolidge got a $65,000 advance, back when that was real
