Ryan, Obama and ´Racism´
Wall Street Journal, by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 3/21/2014 10:48:21 AM

A week later, and liberals are still lining up to assail Paul Ryan´s "racism." The episode is worth noting not because Mr. Ryan said anything wrong, but because of what it shows about the political habits of today´s elected and media left. The Wisconsin Congressman has been looking into the problem of upward economic mobility and how effective federal programs are in combatting poverty. Appearing on Bill Bennett´s radio program, Mr. Ryan observed that antipoverty assistance can often create "incentives not to work and to stay where you are, that´s not what we want in society. . . . There

Not counting instances when he quoted a letter from a citizen or cited dialogue from a movie, President Barack Obama used the first person singular--including the pronouns "I" and "me" and the adjective "my"--199 times in a speech he delivered Thursday vowing to use unilateral executive action to achieve his policy goals that Congress would not enact through the normal, constitutional legislative process. “It is lonely, me just doing stuff,” Obama said at the speech in Austin, Texas, according to the official transcript and video posted on the White House website. “I’m just telling the truth now,” Obama told the

Washington — President Barack Obama met with two dozen companies Friday, including several major foreign automakers, that have agreed to help suppliers with access to financing — in a bid to help many small companies grow. Obama met with executives from Toyota Motor Corp., Honda Motor Co., Nissan Motor Co., and Rolls-Royce North America, along with executives at Johnson & Johnson, Pacific Gas & Electric Co, Kelly Services Inc., Walgreens Co., Coca-Cola, Apple Inc., Lockeed-Martin Corp. and AT&T Inc. who have pledged to help their suppliers with financing.

Some surprisingly strong support from the Obama administration for Israel´s right to respond to Hamas missile attacks. But Prime Minister Netanyahu declined President Obama´s offer to mediate between the warring parties, saying a cease fire "wasn´t even on the agenda." Jerusalem Post: The United States is prepared to facilitate a cessation of hostilities between Israel and Hamas in the Gaza Strip, US President Barack Obama told Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu by phone today. In the call, Obama "reiterated the United States’ strong condemnation of continuing rocket fire into Israel by Hamas and other terrorist organizations in Gaza and reaffirmed Israel’s

White House says photo ops

The top White House spokesman on Friday tried to staunch a torrent of snarky commentary this week poking fun at President Obama´s assertion that he wasn´t interested in a border “photo op." Veteran CBS News White House Correspondent Mark Knoller peppered White House press secretary Josh Earnest with questions about whether Obama really intended to eschew photo ops in general. “His view is that solving problems is most important, and solving problems is what somebody who´s exhibiting leadership is focused on,” Earnest said. “And that´s what the president was doing when he was in Dallas on Wednesday.

LOS ANGELES— Authorities say “Harry Potter” actor Dave Legeno has died from heatstroke in California’s Death Valley. He was 50. Legeno played the werewolf Fenrir Greyback in three “Harry Potter” films. The brawny British actor also appeared in “Snow White and the Huntsman” and “Batman Begins.” The Inyo County Sheriff’s Department says hikers found Legeno’s body Sunday morning in a remote area of the desert park. Legeno’s manager, Rick Bassman, confirmed his death on Friday. County Deputy Coroner Jason Molinar says Legeno’s body was partially decomposed and may have been lying for days in triple-digit heat.

request as Democrats object

WASHINGTON— A key Republican said Friday that President Barack Obama´s multibillion-dollar emergency request for the border is too big to get through the House, as a growing number of Democrats rejected policy changes Republicans are demanding as their price for approving any money. The developments indicated that Obama faces an uphill climb as he pushes Congress to approve $3.7 billion to deal with tens of thousands of unaccompanied kids who´ve been arriving at the U.S.-Mexico border from poor and increasingly violent Central American nations. And they suggested that even as the children keep coming, any final resolution is likely weeks

The U.S. knows Russia and Iran are providing fighter aircraft to help Iraq combat Islamic extremists, but Washington is not coordinating assistance with either Russia or Iran, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said Friday. Hagel was asked at a Pentagon news conference about reports that Iranian and Russian planes are flying combat missions over northern Iraq and why Washington is not seeking to coordinate with them. "We are aware of the Iranian and Russian efforts to help the Iraqis, but we are not involved in coordinating any missions," (Snip) A defense official said later that Hagel did not mean to suggest

GUATEMALA CITY— The body of a 15-year-old migrant was brought home Friday, nearly a month after he died in the hot, dry brushland of southern Texas and became a symbol for the perils facing unaccompanied children who have been flooding illegally into the U.S. The remains of Gilberto Francisco Ramos Juarez were flown to Guatemala City in a cargo plane and turned over to his father at the airport´s small chapel. Gilberto´s father, Francisco Ramos, then took the gray and silver coffin with a photo of the boy attached to it in a pickup truck to his mountain hometown of

NEW YORK — The full moon on Saturday will appear to be unusually big. In fact, it will be a “supermoon.” That’s the nickname for full moons that happen when our celestial neighbor is relatively close to Earth. That distance varies because the moon follows an elliptical orbit. When it’s close and full, it appears bigger and brighter than normal, although in fact the difference can be hard to detect. If you see Saturday’s moon close to the horizon it may seem huge, but that’s just an illusion caused by its position in the sky. Two other full moons this

Bunker Hill, Illinois -Phil Burton remembers his daughter being very matter of fact over the phone that day. ‘Daddy I’m getting married to Charlie,’ she said. He wasn’t surprised. He had long ‘seen the writing on the wall.’ And he knew there would be no need to place an announcement in the local paper. Because his daughter’s fiancé is one of the most infamous convicted killers of all time and the story was about to break. It is eight months since Charles Manson’s 26-year-old girlfriend announced her intention to marry the 79-year-old convict. Dark-haired, slender and strikingly pretty, little was known,

Just after 12:30pm ET on Friday, Russert brought on Rep. Steve Israel (D-NY) to discuss the partisan gridlock in Washington. King began going after a Republican Congress that “insists on suing the president” and “refuses to do almost anything” but only got to answer one real question before he was ushered off the screen. After speaking to his guest for a total of about 60 seconds, Russert cut the interview short to

Despite fiery statements issued by Hamas spokesmen over the past 48 hours, it was obvious Tuesday night that the Islamist movement was searching for ways to rid itself of the current escalation. Hamas feels that it has been forced into a confrontation with Israel – one that it did not want at this stage because of its increased isolation and financial crisis. The massive Israeli air strikes on the Gaza Strip over the past 24 hours have surprised Hamas and other Palestinian groups. Hamas apparently expected a limited response to the recent rocket attacks on Israeli cities and towns. But as the

President Obama on Thursday claimed he is “not that partisan of a guy” as he mocked calls in the Republican Party for his impeachment. The president spent much of his address in Austin, Texas, hammering congressional Republicans, saying they have "blocked or voted down every serious idea to strengthen the middle class." “I’m just telling the truth now," Obama said. "I don´t have to run for office again so I can just let her rip.” He teed off on Republicans such as Sarah Palin who have suggested in recent days that he be impeached, and dismissed Speaker John Boehner´s (R-Ohio) proposed lawsuit

Barack Obama may have lost a few approval rating points with this move. The president was seen cutting the line at Austin´s Franklin Barbecue Thursday afternoon, while in town to raise money for the Democratic Party. Lives at the eatery are infamously long, and have been known to stretch as long as three hours wait.But Mr Obama did no waiting today, as he showed up at the restaurant, shook a few hands and made his way straight to the register to order more than $300 worth of meat. ´I know this is a long line.

President Obama’s ultimate weakness may be that he believes his own blarney. A year ago, Mr. Obama boasted in a “fireside” Web chat that his “is the most transparent administration in history.” There was not the slightest hint of irony. He may actually believe it. But three-dozen organizations representing newspapermen and other journalists, mostly liberals, beg to differ. In a testy letter to the president on Tuesday, the group decried the “slick non-answers” and cold shoulders they’re getting from Mr. Obama’s representatives, who have restricted access to any information they consider embarrassing to the administration. “The stifling of free expression,” the signers

Thursday at her weekly briefing, House Minority Leader Rep Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) was asked why when she was Speaker of the House she did not move forward on the requests of her members to impeach then-President George W. Bush over the arguments his administration made for entering into war with Iraq in 2003. Pelosi accused Bush of being guilty of impeachable offense saying he "sent us into a war based on a false representation of the treat of weapons of mass destruction." But she added after the "shameful, irresponsible an wrong" attempted impeachment of President Bill Clinton she "did not want

Bears, beer and horse heads: What exactly is going on with the leader of the free world? On a single day this week in Denver, President Obama scarfed down pizza and drinks with strangers, shot pool with Colorado’s governor and shook hands with a guy on the street wearing a horse mask. His top staffers are promoting these stops on Twitter with the hashtag #TheBearIsLoose — a term one of Obama’s aides coined in 2008 when the candidate would defy his schedule.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) yesterday described herself as a “lioness” when it comes to protecting children. She also called not only for the U.S. government to process minors arriving illegally from Central America on a “case-by-case basis" but for the government to “treat the Mexican kids the way they treat the non-contiguous country kids.” “Quite frankly, I would rather they treat the Mexican kids the way they treat the non-contiguous country kids,” Pelosi said at a Capitol Hill press conference on Thursday, claiming that sending these children back to their home countries would be like “sending them back into a

Sarah Palin, the Republican vice presidential nominee in 2008, is advocating the impeachment of President Barack Obama. “It’s time to impeach,” she wrote, “and on behalf of American workers and legal immigrants of all backgrounds, we should vehemently oppose any politician on the left or right who would hesitate in voting for articles of impeachment.” I am a pretty fierce critic of the president myself, but let me be among the first to say that Republicans would be insane to follow Ms. Palin’s counsel.

Charlotte and Eric Kaufman and their two daughters were about 1,000 miles west of Cabo San Lucas in the Sea of Cortez when 1-year old Lyra became sick. That was when their adventure of a lifetime turned into a nightmare. It began with a fever, then a rash and then Lyra became lethargic.

In an appearance on Fox News Channel’s “Special Report” on Wednesday, Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) discussed the current state of affairs surrounding the issue of immigration. Flake, the guest of the show’s occasionally occurring “Center Seat” segment, admitted the rise of a populist movement opposing any immigration reform movement that included a version of amnesty. However, he admitted to being perplexed as to why there’s such an opposition stating there’s a need for not only low-skill labor “particularly in the agricultural areas and hospitality areas,” but high-skill labor of “those in the STEM fields.” Partial transcript as follows: STEPHEN HAYES, Weekly Standard: You
