China denounces Barack Obama´s
meeting with Dalai Lama

Guardian (UK), by Jonathan Kaiman

Original Article

Posted By:FlyRight, 2/22/2014 6:56:50 AM

Barack Obama met the Dalai Lama at the White House on Friday, despite objections from China, which has warned that the meeting would inflict grave damage on Sino-American relations.The Tibetan spiritual leader is in the US on a speaking tour. The White House did not announce the meeting until late on Thursday, prompting a gruff complaint from Beijing, in what has become something of a diplomatic ritual whenever Obama meets the exiled Buddhist monk.The two Nobel laureates spent an hour in the White House´s Map Room, a step down in prestige from the Oval Office, where the president traditionally meets

On one of these visits, Obama was so proud of his visit with the Dalai Lama he sent the poor man out the back door through piles of garbage waiting for pickup.

I remember the previous Dalai Lama visit, sending him out the back door with the trash bags stacked. This time, no press.
Also remember barry going to lunch without inviting Bibi.

BUT did he make him exit via the back door once again----or is this part of Obama´s new push to show he is pro underdog? Either way, it is blatant politics and not remotely conviction.

What bothers me more than anything is Barky pretending to have an interest in anything spiritual- other than radical Islam.

Terrorism not ruled out in
disappearance of Malaysia Airlines jet

BEIJING — Malaysian officials investigating the disappearance of a Malaysia Airlines plane Saturday said they were not ruling out terrorism — or any other causes — as reports emerged that two Europeans listed on the passenger manifest were not aboard and may have had their passports stolen.Vietnamese military aircraft participating in a search-and-rescue operation for the Boeing 777, which was en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 people aboard, had spotted two oil slicks in the waters off southern Vietnam, the Associated Press reported. The government said the slicks were each six miles to nine miles long and were

Bob Costas suffered an eye infection during the Sochi Olympics, but The New York Post‘s Page Six claims to have an exclusive scoop on the reason why: “botched Botox.” That’s right, Page Six claims a source told them that “Bob’s eye infection was due to botched Botox. This isn’t the first time he’s had it.” And while that seems a bit far-out there, NBC actually gave a statement to Page Six denying that Costas’ eye infection had anything to do with smoothing out face wrinkles. NBC strongly denies that Costas — who arrived to host the games in Sochi with a forehead smoother than the Olympic luge track — developed the infection

French right-wing in shock

France´s right-wing opposition is reeling after the publication of secret tapes made at the Elysee palace during the presidency of Nicolas Sarkozy.The recordings - in which Mr Sarkozy is heard discussing confidential affairs of state but also joshing with his wife Carla Bruni - were made by one of his closest advisers, Patrick Buisson.A highly controversial figure whose political origins lie on the far-right, Mr Buisson is credited with engineering Mr Sarkozy´s 2007 election by pushing him to toughen his stance on immigration, crime and national identity. After the election Mr Sarkozy said of him: "There are very few people of

Obama, Solipsist
National Review, by Michael Barone    Original Article

Solipsism. It’s a fancy word that means that the self is the only existing reality and that other entities, including other people, are representations of one’s own self and can have no independent existence. A person who follows this philosophy may believe that others see the world as he does and will behave as he would.It’s a quality often found in narcissists, people who greatly admire themselves — such as a presidential candidate confident that he is a better speechwriter than his speechwriters, knows more about policy than his policy directors, and is a better political director than his political

Russia Today anchor quits on

A Russia Today anchor quit live on air Wednesday, declaring she cannot work for a station that “whitewashes the actions of Vladimir Putin.” Liz Wahl, who works in the network’s Washington DC bureau, said her grandparents came to the United States to escape Soviet oppression. “And that is why personally I cannot be part of a station funded by the Russian government that whitewashes the action of Putin,” she said, reading from a statement. “I’m proud to be an American and believe in disseminating the truth. And that is why after this newscast I’m resigning.” Earlier, Ms. Wahl had tweeted:

Last Thursday, a San Diego Police Department detective fired into a home before serving a drug warrant, wounding two men. The detective apparently attempted to knock on a window, causing the window to shatter. She then says she saw one of the men reaching for a gun. There were six people inside the house. None of them had a gun.In searching for more coverage of the story, I found a number of other recent and troubling police shootings in the San Diego area. Among them: Last September, a San Diego Police Department officer shot and killed a transient man who

Dems turn on Obama nominee;
president loses big vote in Senate
Washington Examiner, by Byron York    Original Article
Posted By: FlyRight- 3/5/2014 1:38:02 PM     Post Reply
Senate Democrats killed the filibuster for nominations because they wanted to be able to confirm the president´s choices for top administration positions even if Republicans were united in opposition. From now on, Democrats ruled, nominations would be confirmed by a simple majority vote. With 55 Democrats in the Senate, and as few as 51 required for confirmation, the change virtually guaranteed success for the president´s nominees. But even a rule change was not enough to save the nomination of Debo Adegbile, the former NAACP Legal Defense Fund official who was the president´s choice to head the Justice Department´s Civil Rights Division.

A fired up Gov. Cuomo vowed Tuesday afternoon to “save charter schools.”We are here to tell you we stand with you. You are not alone,” said Cuomo, speaking at a massive pro-charter school rally that attracted thousands of parents, teachers, and kids from across the state who braved frigid 20-degree temperatures to fill the park in front of the Capitol in Albany. “Our point today is that parents deserve a choice,” Cuomo said. “I am committed to ensuring charter schools have the financial capacity, the physical space, and the government support to thrive and grow.” Cuomo made the comments around the same

Hillary Clinton’s baggage is piling up

Hillary Clinton, the Democrats’ most formidable potential nominee for President, has a number of problems going into 2016, if she decides to run. There will be the standard “Clinton baggage,” which most millennials don’t care about — they have their own, much cooler scandals to obsess over — and upon which most baby boomers have already wrought their judgments.There are complex domestic issues that she’ll have to address — does she think Obamacare is the best way to solve health insurance inadequacies? And does she think President Obama’s policies have effectively addressed income inequality and unemployment?

Bill De Blasio wins the lottery:
And has no clue how to run New York City.

There’s a familiar story of a man who has nothing, wins the lotto, and lives the same lavish lifestyle that he once criticized rich people for. Then, in just a few short years, he’s back in poverty, with only memories of good times.Bill de Blasio won the lottery: a weak Republican opponent in an overwhelmingly liberal city that hadn´t elected a Democrat mayor in two decades. There was fatigue over the Bloomberg and Giuliani years.

Issa to Megyn Kelly: Cummings

House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa joined Megyn Kelly Thursday night to react to the uproar over him cutting off Elijah Cummings‘ mic during a contentious IRS hearing, saying that accusations he was “racist” are just “beneath response.” Issa suggested Cummings’ outburst was a “pre-staged event,” but Kelly asked, “Who cares? Let him have his couple of minutes to rip on you! You’re a big guy, you can take it!” He acknowledged that in hindsight, he might have let Cummings rant, but it’s completely unjustified for any member of Congress to try and get his chairmanship revoked over the incident

So, Lois Lerner still won´t talk about her role in the illegal targeting and harassment by the IRS of conservative and Tea Party groups seeking 501(c)(4) tax exemptions. Lerner appeared for a second time Wednesday before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform and claimed her Fifth Amendment right not to incriminate herself. It isn´t hard to figure out why Lerner´s lips are sealed. First, she knows the House of Representatives can cite her for contempt of Congress, but Attorney General Eric Holder would decide whether she is prosecuted on that charge. Lerner need not worry since President Obama has

During his speech to the CPAC crowd on Thursday, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) facetiously recalled “Presidents” Bob Dole, John McCain and Mitt Romney to make a point about how Republicans need to “stand for principle” in order to win big elections. Today, Sen. McCain fired back at Cruz during an appearance on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports. McCain said he spoke to Cruz about the comments and it was “cordial” but he took specific offense at the remarks concerning Dole. “He can say what he wants to about me and he can say anything he wants to about Mitt,” McCain said,

Via Matt Lewis, here’s Maverick once again demonstrating that “cordial relationship” in politico-speak means “two people who can’t publicly admit to hating each other but obviously do.” And it’s a cheap shot. Cruz’s point yesterday at CPAC was that Dole, McCain, and Romney lost because they weren’t conservative enough. That’s not because they’re gutless — he said specifically that they were “good” and “decent” men — but because they’re not committed, full-throated ideologues, even less so when they’re fighting for purple states in a national election. We can debate whether that’s true but there’s nothing offensive in raising the subject.

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) apologized Thursday to his committee´s ranking Democratic member for cutting off his microphone at the end of a hearing Wednesday, according to a local report. Issa told the San Diego Union-Tribune that he personally apologized to Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.). His apology comes after the House earlier Thursday voted down a motion to censure the chairman for his treatment of Cummings. Issa ended a hearing on the IRS scandal Wednesday despite Cummings´s attempt to make a statement and ask a question. When Cummings persisted in his effort to speak, Issa personally cut

What’s been said of confession — that it is good for one’s soul but bad for one’s reputation — can also be true of testifying to Congress, so Lois Lerner has chosen to stay silent. Hers, however, is an eloquent silence. The most intrusive and potentially most punitive federal agency has been politicized; the IRS has become an appendage of Barack Obama’s party. Furthermore, congruent with exhortations from some congressional Democrats, it is intensifying its efforts to suffocate groups critical of progressives, by delaying what once was the swift, routine granting of tax-exempt status. So, the IRS, far from repenting

One of the most seismic changes in American politics over the last decade has been the emergence of a sharp generational split among the electorate. The Democratic Party owes its success in the last two presidential elections almost entirely to overwhelming support among the very young, which has overcome continued conservatism among older voters. The Pew Research Institute has dominated the field of exploring the ideological cleavages among different generations. And its latest survey shows again how the liberalism of the youngest voting cohort, millennials, remains firm, and likely to continue to recast the electorate. A few charts from the survey

Barack Obama´s parents were "married in name only," according to David Maraniss´s 2012 Barack Obama: The Story. But since definitions of an "in name only" marriage vary, such as "a marriage of convenience" or "a sexless marriage," and Maraniss failed to explain his claim, it is unclear what he was implying. Therefore, Obama´s oft-told nativity story must be searched for the full implications of Obama´s parents´ "in name only" marriage. (snip) So when did Ann´s and Obama Sr.´s "whatever happened happened fast" wedding happen? For no apparent reason, confusion abounds among Obama´s biographers over the wedding date:

During the hour-long phone call, President Obama urged Russian forces to return to their bases. The White House said it hoped the crisis could be settled diplomatically and urged the Russian and Ukrainian governments to hold direct talks in an effort to find a settlement. The President called for an agreement which would protect the interests of both Ukrainians and ethnic Russians living in Ukraine. This was the second phone call between the two leaders in a
