The Prankster vs. the Gangster
Rushlimbaugh.com, by Rush Limbaugh

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 3/19/2014 9:58:58 AM

RUSH: We said last week that this Ukraine situation was a showdown between ACORN and the KGB. If you will recall, that is one of the ways I characterized it. But in view of the mocking that Obama is getting from the Russians, folks, they are openly laughing at our president. They are openly mocking Barack Obama! This was not supposed to happen, if you recall the campaign of 2008. In view of the mocking that Obama is getting from the Russians, this is also looking like the prankster versus the gangster. ´Cause Putin´s calling Obama a prankster with his

Is Hillary recharging her batteries
ahead of presidential run? Clintons
to head to tiny town in the Hamptons
for low-key summer vacation
Daily Mail (U.K.), by Wills Robinson    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 4/25/2014 4:28:16 PM     Post Reply
As the countdown to the 2016 presidential election builds momentum, Hillary Clinton is already a runaway favorite to move into the White House. So, faced with 18 months of campaign events and non-stop political appearances, the former Secretary of State has opted to prepare by having a laid back summer vacation in a quiet hamlet in the Hamptons. Even though Hillary has not formally confirmed whether she is running, she will head to Amagansett with her husband Bill over the summer. The small community at the end of Long Island, has a population of just 1,165, but boasts a history of star-studded

´Ohhhh. This is too hard´: Watch House
Speaker John Boehner squeal like a child

immigration reform

House Speaker John Boehner hasn´t been coy about his interest in tackling immigration reform legislation. Just last week the Republican leader said he was ´hell bent´ on doing so before the 113th Congress adjourns at the end of this year, despite facing pressure from members of his caucus not to bring the issue to the House floor. The Speaker´s zeal for getting his Republican colleagues to embrace immigration reform took a sharp turn on Thursday from determination to antagonism, however, when Boehner publicly made fun of his Republican colleagues for being too afraid to confront the issue publicly. ´Here´s the attitude. Ohhhh. Don´t

Dubai - Al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri has called in an interview for militants to kidnap Westerners, especially Americans, to exchange them for jihadist captives. In the second part of an interview with Al-Qaeda media arm As-Sahab, which the US-based SITE monitoring service said a jihadist posted on Twitter, Zawahiri was asked what Muslims should do to free militant prisoners. "I advise them to capture Westerners and especially the Americans as much as they can, to exchange them for their captives," he replied. In the first part of the interview, released on April 19, the Al-Qaeda chief called for unity amid widening divisions with

With Ukraine in turmoil, Hagel can’t
get Russian counterpart to take his calls
Washington Times, by Maggie Ybarra    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 4/25/2014 3:34:35 PM     Post Reply
Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel has been unable to get Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu on the phone amid escalating tension near the country’s shared border with Ukraine. Mr. Shoigu announced Thursday that Russia planned to engage in a new series of military exercises near the Ukraine border. The military move, he said, is in response to ongoing NATO training exercises in Poland and the death of at least two pro-Russia insurgents in eastern Ukraine. Army Col. Steve Warren, a Pentagon spokesman, told reporters Friday that Mr. Hagel has been trying to communicate with Russian officials but has yet to hear back

RUSH: Now, I don´t want to belabor the point, because I think I´ve made the point about the hypocrisy and these people in the midst of this income inequality. The reason, folks, it´s important is because this administration, this regime, likes very much what´s in this idiot Picketty´s book and this book is the kind of thing they can point to and say, "Hey, this is a scholar," just like a global warming scholar or any other kind of scientist. And they say, "We´ve got empirical evidence here this is what we ought to do." And they´re going to start

The U.S. State Department "has embraced the social media to re-shape public diplomacy and transform American diplomacy," observed Donald Bishop, a retired diplomat who now serves as president of the nonprofit Public Diplomacy Council, early last month. Bishop was interviewing Ambassador Laurence Pope, another retired diplomat, and wondered what he made of the department´s efforts. Pope´s reply was disapproving and trenchant: There is nothing wrong with the use of Twitter and Facebook and Zillow [sic] and Youtube and all the rest of it, but diplomacy requires speech on behalf of the state, and social media are individual expressions by definition.

RUSH: As you recall at the end of the program yesterday we were in the midst of a discussion about the French socialist wacko economist by the name of Thomas Piketty, and who we have sound bites from today as well. Mr. Piketty´s premise is that there´s too much income inequality and that there´s too much wealth and the wealth is held in the hands of the same people forever and they don´t share it and they don´t pay people enough. All they do is just take and take and take and this leads to the end of democracy. It´s

Storrs, Connecticut - Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton lamented the state of journalism on Wednesday, telling an audience at the University of Connecticut that journalism is now driven more by entertainment than fact based reporting. Clinton, who has been the focus of national media attention since the early 1990s, told the 2,300-person audience that "journalism has changed quite a bit in a way that is not good for the country and not good for journalism." "A lot of serious news reporting has become more entertainment driven and more opinion-driven as opposed to factual," she said. "People book onto the shows,

President Obama’s landslide victory in 2008 was supposed to herald the beginning of a new Democratic era. And yet, six years later, there is not even a clear Democratic majority in the country, let alone one poised for 30 years of dominance. It’s not because Mr. Obama’s so-called new coalition of young and nonwhite voters failed to live up to its potential. They again turned out in record numbers in 2012. The Democratic majority has failed to materialize because the Republicans made large, countervailing and unappreciated gains of their own among white Southerners. From the high plains of West Texas to the

A corollary to yesterday’s post spitballing about what Paul might do if Jeb (or someone else) squashes him in the early primaries. Whatever you think of Rand’s chances at the nomination, says Ramesh Ponnuru, he’s a strong contender for VP. Do the math: Let’s say the Kentucky legislator makes a strong run — winning some states and coming close in others — but doesn’t win the nomination, a scenario that seems more likely than not. He has something going for him in the veepstakes that other Republican also-rans would not: a constituency that might well defect in large numbers from the

Tom Steyer´s Glass House

The psychiatric world defines "projection" as the act of denying unpleasant qualities in yourself, while attributing them to others. Consider liberal billionaire Tom Steyer´s riff this week about the libertarian billionaire Koch brothers. Mr. Steyer took exception in a C-SPAN interview to comparisons between his big-dollar funding of Democrats with the Koch brothers´ big-dollar funding of Republicans. The Kochs´ priorities "line up perfectly with their pocketbooks—and that´s not true for us," said Mr. Steyer, who is fighting against the Keystone XL pipeline. Moreover, he insisted, his politicking is "completely open," whereas the Kochs have "not been huge embracers of transparency." Why is

The Decline of Tornado Devastation
Wall Street Journal, by Roger Pielke    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 4/24/2014 8:44:15 PM     Post Reply
So far in 2014, the United States has experienced fewer tornadoes than in any year since record-keeping began in 1953, or even before. Greg Carbin, a meteorologist with the Storm Prediction Center of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, has called this "likely the slowest start to tornado activity in any year in modern record, and possibly nearly a century." But just because tornado activity has declined doesn´t mean that we can let down our guard, as potentially large impacts are always a threat. Overall, however, the good news for residents of the Midwest´s "Tornado Alley" and elsewhere is that

In advance of President Obama’s four-nation Asian tour this week, the Washington Post published an article saying this: President Obama’s bid to focus U.S. attention on Asia has failed to meet the lofty expectations he set three years ago in a grand pronouncement that the new emphasis would become a pillar of his foreign policy. [Snip] By now, nearly five and a half years into the Obama presidency, objective people can draw reasonable conclusions, among which are these: Barack Obama was among the least prepared men to ever serve as presidency. It shows. He has been overmatched by events right from the start.

Anyone expecting rancher Cliven Bundy to apologize at a news briefing Thursday for widely condemned remarks — that black people were “happier” during the slavery era than now — would be disappointed. Wearing his signature cowboy hat, Bundy, who led an armed confrontation with federal rangers over a land dispute and was then hailed as a patriot by Fox News’ Sean Hannity and other conservatives, repeated in Bunkerville, Nevada, what he had said earlier — he was “just wondering” if blacks were better off under slavery.

MADISON TOWNSHIP House Speaker John Boehner theatrically mocked his fellow Republican Congressmen for being afraid to reform immigration policy when he spoke Thursday before the Middletown Rotary Club in his home district. "Here´s the attitude. Ohhhh. Don´t make me do this. Ohhhh. This is too hard," Boehner whined before a luncheon crowd at Brown´s Run County Club in Madison Township. "We get elected to make choices. We get elected to solve problems and it´s remarkable to me how many of my colleagues just don´t want to ... They´ll take the path of least resistance." Boehner said he´s been working for 16 or 17

GOP Senators Accuse Obama Of Abandoning Immigration Enforcement (Wochit) Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), who co-wrote the Senate´s amnesty legislation and has been trying for more than a decade to pass comprehensive immigration reform, believes not granting amnesty to all of the country´s illegal immigrants is a "stain on America´s honor." Speaking at Harvard University´s Institute of Politics on Wednesday, McCain said the country currently has "de facto amnesty" because there are "not enough buses" to deport all of the country´s illegal immigrants. "Why don´t we give them a path to citizenship?" McCain asked before insisting that such a path is "no amnesty." "If you

Secretary of State John Kerry delivered a stern warning to Russia Thursday evening, one week after a tentative agreement to defuse the crisis in Ukraine appeared to have no impact on the violent clashes between pro-Russian separatists and the Ukrainian government. "The window to change course is closing," Kerry told reporters at the State Department. "President [Vladimir] Putin and Russia face a choice." If Russia does not reverse course and take action to urge the separatists to stand down and give up their arms, Kerry said the U.S. and its allies are poised to take actions directed at hurting Russia´s economy.

First lady Michelle Obama is scrapping her plans to deliver a graduation speech for high school seniors in Topeka, Kan., after hundreds signed a petition in protest. Instead of delivering a graduation speech, Obama will speak before the school district the day before graduation, and will deliver remarks at a "Senior Recognition Day." More than 1,750 people had signed a petition protesting the first lady´s appearance at the graduation ceremony, angered that security concerns would limit the number of friends and family who could attend. According to the Topeka Capital-Journal, students would have only been allotted six tickets apiece had

The new high school will be built near the intersection of Division and Halsted streets by Skinner North Classical School. It will open in fall 2017 with a freshman class of 300 students, adding more students each year to ultimately hold 1,200 students. About 70 percent of the seats will be available to students through the competitive selective enrollment process. The remaining from a neighborhood boundary that has yet to be

In late 2011, nearing the eve of the formal start of the 2012 presidential election cycle, America’s liberal commentators had already watched a series of Republican presidential debates and formed their opinions of the prospective GOP candidates. Most determined that former Massachusetts governor and eventual nominee, Mitt Romney, was an unsavory conservative, but he was a preferable alternative to his Republican competition. In fact, the left-leaning political press was so much more concerned about Romney’s arch-conservative competitors that they were willing to overlook the former governor’s offenses to liberal

The age comparisons between Hillary Clinton and Ronald Reagan seem as natural as they are nonsensical. Yes, were Clinton to win in 2016, she would take office at age 69—just as Reagan did in 1981. And yes, the comparison is often made when Clinton´s critics and allies debate whether she has the health to serve out two presidential terms. But it´s a wildly misleading comparison, as the number that matters when assessing Clinton´s health is not her age, but her life expectancy. And there is where the Clinton-Reagan comparison is revealed as a stretch. A combination of federal data and
