The Hague-—President Barack Obama, seeking to shift the trajectory of the crisis in Ukraine, will press U.S. allies Monday to suspend Russia from the Group of Eight leading nations and to adopt more sweeping sanctions against the Russian economy, administration officials said. Mr. Obama will argue for those steps in an emergency meeting Monday evening with leaders of the world´s top seven economies, held on the sidelines of a nuclear security summit in The Hague, officials said. "We believe that there is no reason for the G-7 countries to engage with Russia going forward based on its behavior," Ben Rhodes,

C´mon! If this Øbama guy can cool the entire planet and force the ocean levels to recede, surely he can talk old Putin back into Russia. What is Øbama? A man or a mouse?

Oh, yeah- thinking of the way he dances down aircraft steps with his little "Gerbil clutches" in front of him, don´t answer- I know already.

Perhaps its time to recognize that Obamas aka Iranian Valerie Jarrett- failed foreign policy has done exactly what he/she wanted to do - Take Down America.
As Jarrett said, "We will be ready to RULE on day one."
What the Euroweenies didn´t understand as they applauded this socialist - is that means they are ON THEIR OWN.
Merkel depends upon the Russians for 30 percent of her gas and Europe has three times the investment IN Russia as Russia in Europe.
Putin vs. Jarrett/Obama - I´ll take Putin - as will most of Europe. He is a man - not a puppet.
Obama betrayed the US military in Iraq, Afghanistan and BENGHAZI- until he and his fool Biden are removed - the New World Disorder will change the map of Europe.

Do you remember Putin threatening to take Crimea ? Me neither. He just took it.

Zippy seems to think that because he is a wannabe Communist that the real commies are going to respect him.

He fails to realize that serious dictators have no use for spoiled rich kids.

Gosh this is embarrassing, especially since our dear leader is a complete dork. Nobody pays any attention anymore and couldn´t care less what he does or says. Meanwhile the Mooch, little Mooches and Grandma Mooch are over in China degrading Chinese standards.

My recollection is that Russia was invited to join the G-7 (although it´s economy was no where near the levels of the other members) as a reward to reformer Boris Yeltsin - who certain enjoyed the many meeting dinners and even more so the legendary G-7 open bar. Putin is teetotal so free booze isn´t much of lure.

Which gets me thinking. Westerners often complain about the inefficiency and drunkenness of the typical Russian. They argue that if Russia would employ stricter laws against drinking the economy would improve dramatically. However, what the West might instead see are more sober Russians turning into Russians like Vlad "the Invader" Putin. So be careful what you wish for. Perhaps the only thing standing between Russia and world domination is their beverage of choice.

Washington--When President Obama placed a call to Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany last Thursday, he had a busy agenda: to consult with a close ally and to mobilize wavering Europeans to put more pressure on Russia to end its covert incursions in Ukraine.What Mr. Obama did not know was that a day earlier, a young German intelligence operative had been arrested and had admitted that he had been passing secrets to the Central Intelligence Agency.While Ms. Merkel chose not to raise the issue during the call, the fact that the president was kept in the dark about the blown spying

San Fernando, Calif.—The Oscar-nominated designers at Legacy Effects have outfitted such memorable movie warriors as The Terminator, RoboCop, Captain America and Iron Man. The special-effects company is now at work on what seems a mission impossible: Building an Iron Man-style suit to protect and propel elite U.S. troops by encasing them in body armor equipped with an agile exoskeleton to enable troops to carry hundreds of pounds of gear. The 3-D printers that once churned out parts for actor Robert Downey Jr.´s red and gold movie armor are making pieces for a Pentagon prototype. Military officials recently examined three designs,

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), a federal agency tasked with enforcing workplace discrimination laws, is suing a private American business for firing a group of Hispanic and Asian employees over their inability to speak English at work, claiming that the English-language requirement in a U.S. business constitutes “discrimination.” Judicial Watch reported Tuesday that the government is accusing Wisconsin Plastics, Inc. of violating Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which prohibits discrimination based on “national origin.” The government argues this includes the “linguistic characteristics of a national origin group.” Irene Garcia, the blog editor and Spanish media liaison for

Neenah, Wis.--Inside the municipal garage of this small lakefront city, parked next to the hefty orange snowplow, sits an even larger truck, this one painted in desert khaki. Weighing 30 tons and built to withstand land mines, the armored combat vehicle is one of hundreds showing up across the country, in police departments big and small. The 9-foot-tall armored truck was intended for an overseas battlefield. But as President Obama ushers in the end of what he called America’s “long season of war,” the former tools of combat — M-16 rifles, grenade launchers, silencers and more — are ending up

President Obama has revealed that his older daughter Malia has gone through the teenage rite of passage by attending her first prom. He wouldn´t say whether she had a date or went with friends, joking that it was ´classified information´. (Snip) The president says he and the first lady were worried that growing up in the White House would give their daughters ´an attitude´ but proudly boasted that they have remained respectful, kind and considerate young women.

Hospitals Look to Health
Law, Cutting Charity
New York Times, by Abby Goodnough    Original Article
Posted By: pineledger- 5/26/2014 8:46:49 AM     Post Reply
Hospital systems around the country have started scaling back financial assistance for lower- and middle-income people without health insurance, hoping to push them into signing up for coverage through the new online marketplaces created under the Affordable Care Act. The trend is troubling to advocates for the uninsured, who say raising fees will inevitably cause some to skip care rather than buy insurance that they consider unaffordable. Though the number of hospitals tightening access to free or discounted care appears limited so far, many say they are considering doing so, and experts predict that stricter policies will become increasingly common.

Leadership: In a historic game changer, Russia and China have signed a $400 billion natural gas deal, and Iran is now offering to supply Europe´s gas needs. What a wasted opportunity for a U.S. bereft of any energy strategy. The full chess-master acumen of Russia, China and Iran was on display this week, foremost in a massive, 30-year Russian agreement to supply Siberian natural gas to China, signed Wednesday by Gazprom and China National Petroleum Corporation officials as Russia´s President Vladimir Putin and China´s President Xi Jinping looked on.

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 Obama administration quietly announced on Tuesday that it intends to change the way Americans learn about natural disasters and other major emergencies during radio and TV broadcasts, giving the president the ability to flip a switch and address the entire nation at once. The Emergency Alert System, the latest version of a program first established in 1951, blasts out emergency messages in the event of local weather emergencies, but can also be used to warn Americans about terror attacks and major natural disasters.

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.

The First Lady of these United States has declared war on Chick-fil-A. It seems the home of plump juicy breasts and hot buttered buns has run afoul of the new Smart Snacks in School program. The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School.

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

Where is the red line of impeachment? In theory, a red line might be located somewhere on a list of impeachable offenses – perhaps at the point where a certain number of transgressions is exceeded, or next to a specific instance because of its significance or impact. In reality, though, that red line exists along a spectrum of “political will.” As Andrew McCarthy explained: “You can have a thousand provable impeachable offenses, but before Congress may remove the president from power, there must be strong popular support – a public will that cuts across partisan and ideological lines.”
