Ron Fournier is as mad as hell and he´s not going to take it anymore. Correction: That was the late Howard Beale. Fournier, National Journal´s senior political columnist and editorial director, is going to take it for at least a while longer, and he isn´t so much mad as tapped out, or nearly so. In a recent column he explains, as the headline puts it, "Why I´m Sick of Defending ObamaCare." Fox News Channel´s Kirsten Powers feels the same way. On "Special Report With Bret Baier," she paraphrased Fournier and enthusiastically assented: "The headline was ´Why I´m Getting Tired of Defending ObamaCare,´

Obama Shows Us How to Give Away Other
People´s Money and Soak in the Love

RUSH: Yesterday at the end of the program -- the last half hour of the program -- I was watching TV. Obama did his White House ceremony raising the minimum wage for federal contractors. It just hit me. There he is giving away some more of other people´s money, and it immediately hit me: How popular could I be if I could do that? How popular could I be and how unbeatable could I be if I were able to give away other people´s money to anybody I wanted to, and if I focused on the downtrodden and the needy and the

Ted Cruz, Rand Paul top huge Tea Party
poll; Chris Christie, Jeb Bush dead last
Washington Examiner, by Paul Bedard    Original Article

Conservative Sens. Ted Cruz and Rand Paul top the biggest Tea Party presidential poll yet, while moderates New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush are dumped at the bottom, undermining their hopes of being 2016 crossover candidates. The online poll of 62,000 grassroots activists provided exclusively to Secrets finds that conservatives and Tea Party organizers stand fully behind the heroes of their movement, including outspoken surgeon Ben Carson, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and 2008 vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin. But the poll for nation´s largest Tea Party group, TheTeaParty.net, and the influential conservative organization Contract from America drenched

Update: Republicans Move To
´Clean´ Debt Ceiling Today
Breitbart´s Big Government, by Jonathan Strong    Original Article

Speaker John Boehner will bring a clean debt ceiling bill to the floor today, marking the end of an era in which House Republicans sought spending cuts and reforms in equal or greater amount to the increase in the debt ceiling. President Obama and congressional Democrats had said they were opposed to even discussing spending cuts in the context of the debt ceiling. But Republicans couldn´t even come together with their own plan. “It´s a recognition that we don´t have 218 votes. When you don´t have 218 votes, you have nothing,” Boehner said in a press conference. House leadership began the effort

John McCain, former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, Newt Gingrich, Donald Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), and other notable Republicans warmly wish Palin a happy birthday and thank her for her contributions to the conservative movement.

A fresh start for Hillary
Clinton and liberals?
Associated Press, by Ken Thomas    Original Article

WASHINGTON — As Hillary Rodham Clinton mulls a second presidential bid, liberals are closely watching whether the onetime supporter of the Iraq war moves to the left or straddles the center. Democrats say economic issues such as raising the minimum wage and protecting Social Security have become paramount for anyone aiming to lead the party after years of tough economic times. During the 2008 primary campaign against Barack Obama, Clinton was hurt by her stand on the Iraq war while she was a senator. But she burnished her image among party loyalists during four years at the State Department in the

or Democrats, 2016 is the year they hope to shatter the nation´s highest and toughest glass ceiling. But so far, the party´s self-declared glass ceiling cracker has the party´s other women waiting on her. While Hillary Clinton makes up her mind about whether to make another White House bid, other Democratic women with presidential ambitions aggressively insist they´re not running this time around. They´ve signed a letter encouraging Clinton to jump in. They´ve gone to early nominating states to tout her candidacy — while sometimes turning down their own invitations to those same states for fear of sending signals that they´re

Global warming hasn’t stopped, the heat’s

Daily Mail (U.K.), by Ellie Zolfagharifard    Original Article

Powerful winds in the Pacific Ocean, which have driven surface heat deep underwater, could be the reason behind the current ‘pause’ in global warming. This is according to a joint Australian and U.S. study which has looked at why there has been a slowdown in the planet’s global average surface temperature over the past decade. Their research shows that trade winds in central and eastern parts of the Pacific have caused warm surface water to sink to the ocean´s depths, reducing the amount of heat in the atmosphere. Last year, scientists on the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) said the pace of

A Nasa spacecraft orbiting the red planet has found the ´strongest indication´ that liquid water may still exist on the Martian surface. Images taken by Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter reveal ´finger-like´ markings on Martian slopes. Experts say that although they do not yet have a ´smoking gun´, they believe the markings are made by minerals which could not have left without flowing liquid. ´The features are dark, finger-like markings that advance down some Martian slopes when temperatures rise,´ Nasa said. The new clues include corresponding seasonal changes in iron minerals on the same slopes and a survey of ground temperatures and other traits at active

Hillary Clinton claimed that husband Bill didn´t have sex of ´any real meaning´ with Monica Lewinsky and the former White House intern was a ´narcissistic loony toon´, explosive secret documents have revealed. The former First Lady made the frank remarks to her best friend in 1998 as the American public reeled from Lewinsky´s claims of nine sexual encounters with the president in the Oval Office. Days after the news of the affair broke, Hillary stood stone-faced beside her husband as he vehemently denied any such liaisons took place at a press conference, uttering the now infamous statement: ´I did not have sexual

Obama Rewrites ObamaCare

´ObamaCare" is useful shorthand for the Affordable Care Act not least because the law increasingly means whatever President Obama says it does on any given day. His latest lawless rewrite arrived on Monday as the White House decided to delay the law´s employer mandate for another year and in some cases maybe forever. ObamaCare requires businesses with 50 or more workers to offer health insurance to their workers or pay a penalty, but last summer the Treasury offered a year-long delay until 2015 despite having no statutory authorization. Like the individual mandate, the employer decree is central to ObamaCare´s claim of

Memo Says Hillary Supports

Big Government: A 20-year-old memo says Hillary Clinton backed a single-payer socialist health system, believing ObamaCare-like mega-regulation to be "a crock." As president, she´d double down on government control. It´s buried over 60 paragraphs into Alana Goodman´s investigative article in the Washington Free Beacon this week about unpublished documents exposing Clinton´s ruthlessness. Among the papers of Hillary adviser and close friend Diane Blair at the University of Arkansas is an account of a Feb. 23, 1993 White House dinner Blair attended. The first lady had just launched her secretive health care task force pushing a "managed competition" approach to reform. Hillary commented "at

It´s no surprise that Barack Obama´s authoritarian streak is revealing itself at last. It was always there; clearly apparent in his rhetoric (e.g., his envy of Chinese president Xi Jin-ping´s powers), his abuse of executive orders, his threats against Congress, his sultan with fly-whisk attitudes toward his opposition, and even his vacations, which reek more of third-world trash gamboling on the Riviera than any American leader (George W. Bush settled his mind by clearing brush in Texas, Reagan at his ranch in Santa Barbara. Obama unfortunately finds the brush already cleared in Martha´s Vineyard and Hawaii.)

Government watchdog Judicial Watch has released an unclassified map showing the military fleet positions the night of the 9/11 Benghazi terror attack. The map shows dozens of military ships, including two aircraft carriers and 13 destroyers, were stationed in the North Africa Area of Responsibility when radical Islamic militants stormed the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, killing four Americans including U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens. Diplomatic Security agent David Ubben, a survivor of the attack, waited severely wounded on a roof with Navy SEALS Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty for 20 hours before help arrived.

One guest thought the cost of the dress was close to $10,000. "Well, first of all, I love the dress on her because I think it´s so elegant and so simple. I mean, that shape is what we call the princess shape. It´s got that sort of poof at the bottom that´s very sort of billowy at the same time. It´s strapless. I think we want to call that French blue, maybe," said a guest. "Some people might call it periwinkle and it´s got this sort of jet bodice and everything, and I think it´s realy pretty.

Michelle Obama chose Venezuelan-American designer Carolina Herrera for the gown she wore Tuesday to the state dinner honoring French President Francois Hollande. The formal, ornate style of the sumptuous gown by Ms Herrera reflected French aesthetics, from the intricate beaded black bodice, to the train and full skirt in a color called liberty blue. ´From the White House to Versailles it´s not that far,´ said Susan Swimmer, author of Michelle Obama: First Lady of Fashion and Style. ´It´s much more keeping in a French aesthetic than I´ve seen her wear before. It´s very French in terms of how ornate it

The first lady chose a dramatic Carolina Herrera ball gown with a voluminous skirt and lace-overlay top. The blue and black gown is the first dress with sleeves Obama has worn to a state dinner. Previously she donned one-shouldered pieces from Peter Soronen and Doo-Ri Chung, and a strapless gown by Naeem Khan for the administration’s first official state dinner in 2009 for India. The dress includes a black hand-sewn beaded embroidery applique scallop-edged top over a liberty blue silk faille corset, according to a statement from the designer.

President Obama has repeatedly suspended parts of the Affordable Care Act without the consent of Congress. The latest unilateral action happened Monday night, when the administration announced another delay of the employer mandate, the law´s provision that businesses with more than 50 employees must provide their employees with insurance starting in 2014 or pay large fines. In July, the president decreed the mandate wouldn´t be enforced at all in 2014, and last night administration officials declared that businesses with 50 to 99 employees wouldn´t be penalized in 2015. Republicans have denounced such actions as "lawless." But if what the president has

Fiery Louis Farrakhan of Nation of Islam fame said during his weekly video sermon that white people have a history of stirring up trouble, and that Allah has chosen blacks “to give life” and sit at the “top of civilization.” He also “issued the final call,” as he termed it: “I say to the Pope and all the lovers of Jesus, if you desire, let’s have a showdown. You call the Jesus that you know, and I’ll call on the Jesus that I know, and let’s see which one of us really knows Jesus.” Mr. Farrakhan quoted widely from Elijah

House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp (R., Mich.) said Tuesday that the committee’s investigation of the Internal Revenue Service found that 100 percent of the tax-exempt groups that were flagged and targeted with an audit were right-leaning. The Wall Street Journal reports: “We now know that the IRS targeted not only right-leaning applicants, but also right-leaning groups that were already operating as 501(c)(4)s,” Mr. Camp said in a statement. “At Washington, DC’s direction, dozens of groups operating as 501(c)(4)s were flagged for IRS surveillance, including monitoring of the groups’ activities, websites and any other publicly available information.

Less than 24 hours after President Obama illegally rewrote the law he had previously jammed down Boehner´s -- and the country´s -- throat, Boehner handed the budding dictator a clean debt-ceiling hike. Last October, Obama vindictively shut down the federal government upon his having refused to delay ObamaCare, which of course is exactly what he himself lawlessly did on February 10, 2014! Of course, Boehner is hardly in a position to argue now, having foolishly (immensely so) accepted responsibility for the shutdown. Never mind Boehner´s cowardice (we´ll get to that in a moment); what kind of moron cedes that kind of maneuverability to
