North Carolina jury upholds conservative
professor´s freedom of speech rights on campus

Washington Examiner, by Mark Tapscott

Original Article

Posted By:grace52, 3/21/2014 4:23:24 PM

There is a maxim that one person´s freedom ends at another person´s nose. That´s not quite how it works in the academic world when the swinger is the liberal powers-that-be and the swingee is a conservative professor. The Alliance Defending Freedom and the American Center for Law and Justice won a significant victory in a North Carolina court this week for restoring the maxim´s equal application on campus.

That bad, huh? Newspaper so disappointed
in Obama it apologizes for 2008 endorsement
Washington Examiner, by T. Becket Adams    Original Article
Posted By: grace52- 7/2/2014 10:05:10 AM     Post Reply
President Obama has so far been a major disappointment to even his most ardent supporters, his approval numbers steadily falling to fresh lows. And the president is apparently such a disappointment, that the Billings Gazette in Montana felt compelled last week to apologize to its readers for endorsing him in 2008 over Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz.

Rewriting History
Weekly Standard, by Joel Winton    Original Article
Posted By: grace52- 6/2/2014 2:44:57 PM     Post Reply
Hillary Clinton will shortly release a memoir, Hard Choices, chronicling her tenure as secretary of state. If what she has to say in its pages resembles what she had to say from the stage at the American Jewish Committee’s (AJC) annual Global Forum on May 14—where she claimed undue credit for implementing sanctions against Iran—it’s worth setting the record straight now. In reality, the Obama administration, and Clinton’s State Department in particular, opposed, dragged their feet on, and sought to water down every piece of sanctions legislation introduced by bipartisan majorities in the House and Senate. With that history now being rewritten, let’s review the actual record.

Next month it will be 10 years since Ronald Reagan died at age 93. Next fall it will be 20 years since he withdrew from public view by releasing his handwritten letter announcing he had been diagnosed with Alzheimer´s disease, and 30 years since he was re-elected with 59 percent of the vote, carrying 49 of 50 states -- a political feat no one has come close to since. And it will be 50 years since his late October telecast for Barry Goldwater made him a national political figure.

Life after Wartime

What does America owe its veterans? Perhaps the best answer to this question I have ever seen came from a young woman named Julie Ponzi—wise beyond her years—in response to a review I had written of Karl Marlantes’s magnificent Vietnam war novel, Matterhorn. She observed that by providing a real understanding of war and its sacrifices, memoirs and novels such as Matterhorn make it possible for “our fighting men to finally get some genuine gratitude. Not sympathy or pedestals; but real gratitude.

GOP Committee Chairman
declares war on corporate welfare
Washington Examiner, by Timothy P. Carney    Original Article
Posted By: grace52- 5/22/2014 4:30:39 PM     Post Reply
A Republican congressman bashing “crony capitalism” and “corporate welfare” is no longer a new thing. A Republican congressman actually trying to do something about corporate welfare, however, is nearly unprecedented. So it´s a sign that the GOP could go in a new direction when the Republican chairman of the House Financial Services Committee sets out to derail some of Wall Street´s favorite federal gravy trains and “reform the corporate welfare state.” Texas Republican Jeb Hensarling, who chairs the House banking panel, gave a call to arms at the conservative Heritage Foundation on Tuesday afternoon,

At fundraiser, Obama dismisses GOP
scrutiny of Benghazi, Obamacare
Washington Examiner, by Susan Crabtree    Original Article
Posted By: grace52- 5/20/2014 9:49:44 AM     Post Reply
President Obama, during a fundraiser Monday night, chided Republicans for spending additional time scrutinizing his administration´s handling of the Benghazi terrorist attack and the implementation of Obamacare and blamed the GOP for Washington´s dysfunction. Obama is under pressure this week to formally address the problems at the Veterans Affairs Department after allegations of secret waiting times at VA hospitals that may have cost 40 veterans their lives. White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough appeared on the Sunday talk shows and repeatedly said the president is infuriated by the unfolding VA scandal “and I have the scars to prove it.”

One change is not enough for veterans
Weekly Standard, by Michael Astrue    Original Article
Posted By: grace52- 5/15/2014 3:04:36 PM     Post Reply
I did not get to know Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric Shinseki when we served together in the Obama administration, but in our limited interactions I liked him. He struck me as polite, smart, earnest and hard-working. Over time he resisted the ego-tripping that many agency heads find irresistible in Washington. Secretary Shinseki, however, has not been an agent of change. As his May 15 Senate testimony made clear, the management style which he brought with him—the only style he knows—is ill-suited for an agency that has serious management and integrity issues. Delegating and deferring to a broken bureaucracy that will not be candid

Cascade of scandals has Eric Shinseki

Eric Shinseki’s troubles began with a "Patton" video. Now the secretary of Veterans Affairs is facing charges that veterans are needlessly dying on his watch as the head of the largest civilian agency in the federal government. Scandals have cascaded over Shinseki and the VA since the Washington Examiner revealed in August 2012 that $50,000 in taxpayer money was spent to produce a pair of video parodies that came to define the lavish spending at the two Veterans Affairs training conferences in Orlando.

   

 



 
Unfree Speech

It´s hardly news that conservatives are not especially welcome on college and university campuses. Speech codes are designed to restrict discourse and punish the exercise of fundamental rights. Faculties are disproportionately left-wing in their politics. Administrators are sometimes intimidated by mobs. Conservative students can be marginalized and harassed. Visiting speakers are assailed, shouted down, sometimes physically assaulted.

Another blue-collar union asks Senate

Senators are hearing from the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers in an appeal for approval of the Keystone XL pipeline project. The IBEW is the latest of the growing number of traditional blue-collar unions taking an aggressive pro-Keystone position opposed in large part by Big Green environmentalists and their Democratic supporters in the Obama administration.

Did Romeycare save lives due to Massachusetts´
world-class medical system?
Washington Examiner, by Philip Klein    Original Article
Posted By: grace52- 5/9/2014 12:27:47 PM     Post Reply
In a previous post, I wrote about a new study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine finding the Massachusetts health care law signed by former Gov. Mitt Romney in 2006 led to a measurable reduction in mortality in the state relative to other counties in the United States with similar demographics that did not expand coverage. But as experts debate how much the Massachusetts experience is likely to be replicated nationally as President Obama´s health care law expands the number of Americans with insurance, one question worth exploring is how much of a role the world-class medical system in Massachusetts

Calm, Cool, Collected?

It´s mature to be calm. Republicans are nothing if not mature. It’s chic to be cool. Republicans yearn to be chic. It’s a sign of gravitas to be collected. Republicans have gravitas. And so Republicans, from candidates to consultants to commentators, cultivate a calm, cool, and collected affect. Keep calm and carry on, they say soberly and sagely to each other. Which is fine if you’re in the midst of the struggle, and your forces are already fully committed to the fight. But if you’re rallying your troops, and trying to persuade others that they need to join the fight,

The hypocrisy of Obama’s
15-day Vineyard vacation

On April 1, the U.S. economy dropped a whopping 2.9 percent for the first three months of the year (no fooling). The American workforce participation rate fell to a 40-year low. One-third of people aged 18-29 have moved back in with their parents. Millions of Americans this summer will enjoy yet another “staycation”: They just can’t afford to go to the beach or the mountains, even for a week — again. (Snip) Forget that the United States is deep into what Mr. Obama dramatically declares a “humanitarian crisis,” that the Middle East is a powder keg about to blow, that Iraq has all but fallen to Islamist terrorists. (Why not forget; the president has.)

A Fox News exclusive reported this morning by Jana Winter inexplicably buried the lede. Winter reports that several dead children have been discovered “washed up along the riverbank” of the Rio Grande, but fails to note that there have been no reports by the Obama administration on this. This indicates a pattern of covering up dead illegal alien kids by the Obama administration. It was two weeks before news was reported on the sole child death acknowledged by the Obama administration, Gilberto Ramos, a 15 year-old boy from Guatemala whose body was found in the Texas brush dead from the

The U.S. deported Honduran children as young as 1-1/2 years old on Monday in the first flight since President Obama pledged to speed up the process of sending back illegal immigrant minors from Central America. Fleeing violence and poverty, record numbers of children from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala have crossed into the United States over the past year, sparking intense debate about how to solve the problem. Monday´s flight from New Mexico to San Pedro Sula, the city with the highest murder rate in the world, returned 17 Honduran women, as well as 12 girls and nine boys, aged

Professor Stephen Hawking is backing the academic boycott of Israel by pulling out of a conference hosted by Israeli president Shimon Peres in Jerusalem as a protest at Israel´s treatment of Palestinians. Hawking, 71, the world-renowned theoretical physicist and former Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at the University of Cambridge, had accepted an invitation to headline the fifth annual president´s conference, Facing Tomorrow, in June, which features major international personalities, attracts thousands of participants and this year will celebrate Peres´s 90th birthday. Hawking is in very poor health, but last week he wrote a brief letter to the Israeli president to say he

President Obama is “absolutely” the most transparent president in history, White House press secretary Josh Earnest said Sunday after the White House received a letter from signed by a dozen top journalists’ groups complaining about the administration’s policies toward the media. “There are a number of steps that we´ve taken to give people greater insight into what´s happening at the White House,” Earnest said in an interview with CNN’s “Reliable Sources.” The letter, signed by the Society of Professional Journalists and the Poynter Institute, among others, accuses the White House of "politically driven suppression of news and information about federal agencies."

In remarks framed as a message to the American public, actor Jon Voight emotionally aired his political grievances for several minutes in a televised statement on Saturday. Those grievances range from (but are not limited to) Benghazi, the IRS scandal, the "targeting" of conservative filmmaker Dinesh D´Souza, illegal immigration, the Hobby Lobby Supreme Court case, the treatment of war veterans, the chaos in Iraq and deep reservations about President Obama. "Five years ago, I stated that Obama would take the country apart piece-by-piece, that he would cause a civil war in this country," Voight read on Saturday in a statement on

Inquiring minds wonder if there’s a “G” in the grading repertoire. And that does not stand for “good.” Pollster John Zogby has given President Obama an “F” this week for the White House performance on the global stage, and the researcher has no imminent good news for the president. “Some people have really bad weeks. Brazil’s President Dilma Rousseff got an ‘F’ after the nation’s soccer team lost to Germany. But President Obama’s week was just as bad,” Mr. Zogby says. “Israel and the Palestinians are at war again. The president should have visited the U.S.-Mexican border, where so many immigrant children are in danger and so many

On July 16, comic character Archie Andrews, of Life With Archie, will die after being shot while protecting gay friend Kevin Keller. Keller is "Archie Comics´ first openly gay character." According to the Associated Press, Keller is "a married military veteran and newly elected senator who´s pushing for more gun control in Riverdale after his husband was involved in a shooting." Archie Comics´ publisher and co-CEO Jon Goldwater said the way in which Archie will die was carefully chosen. While he could have been killed saving "Betty" or saving "Veronica," doing so for Keller was something "that would really resonate

Senate Budget Committee ranking member Sen.

Attorney General Eric Holder said Sunday he and President Obama have been targets of “a racial animus” by some of the administration’s political opponents. “There´s a certain level of vehemence, it seems to me, that´s directed at me [and] directed at the president,” Holder told ABC. “You know, people talking about taking their country back. … There´s a certain racial component to this for some people. I don’t think this is the thing that is a main driver, but for some there´s a racial animus." Holder said the nation is in “a fundamentally better place than we were 50 years ago.” “We´ve
