Sen. Paul keeps pole position in 2016 GOP
presidential field; Huckabee second in new poll

Washington Times, by Seth McLaughlin

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 3/30/2014 9:39:04 AM

A new nationwide poll found that Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee are leading the field of potential 2016 presidential candidates. Mr. Paul and Mr. Huckabee won support from 13 percent of those surveyed, while former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush was nipping at their heels with 11 percent. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz each pulled in 9 percent. “With a field of quality candidates, it is no surprise that no one has broken away from the pack,” said Chris Wilson, CEO of WPA Opinion Research, which did the poll. “The important thing at this

Comments:
It´s disheartening to see support for Huckabee, a media personality. Media personalities don´t qualify. But there is plenty of time.

The last Republican President that was a media personality worked out fairly well, however Senators make lousy candidates and even worse Presidents.

Wendy Davis slaps Supreme Court
for ‘disappointing decision to
restrict access to birth control’;
Abbott calls it a win for religious liberty
Morning News [Dallas, TX], by Michael Lindenberger    Original Article

Texas Sen. Wendy Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor in 2014, issued a statement condemning the court’s decision in the Hobby Lobby case. “Today’s disappointing decision to restrict access to birth control puts employers between women and their doctors. We need to trust women to make their own health care decisions — not corporations, the Supreme Court, or Greg Abbott,” she said. Abbott, the attorney general and her opponent in this fall election, issued a statement praising the ruling, which is below.

Barack Obama learns a little jujitsu. Over the past several weeks, President Obama has threatened to go around and without Congress to impose some form of immigration reform. He has threatened Congress. He has had his surrogates like Dick Durbin come out and say “It’s not a bluff! He’ll do it! Really! He will!. Not. A.

5 Major Takeaways From
The Hobby Lobby Decision
The Federalist, by Sean Davis    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 6/30/2014 3:03:09 PM     Post Reply
The Supreme Court this morning issued its ruling in the Hobby Lobby case. At issue was whether closely held companies like Hobby Lobby could be forced by the government to provide abortifacient coverage to its employees, in defiance of its owners’ deeply held religious beliefs. In a 5-4 ruling written by Justice Samuel Alito, the Supreme Court ruled that Hobby Lobby and other closely held companies do not have to provide contraceptive coverage that conflicts with the religious beliefs of the companies’ owners. Here are 5 major takeaways from the Supreme Court’s decision. 1) The government must provide religious accommodations to for-profit

Japan PM to overturn
pacifist defence policy

Japan´s prime minister, Shinzo Abe, is to defy public opinion and announce a dramatic shift in the country´s defence policy that would make it easier for its troops to fight in overseas conflicts. Abe´s cabinet is expected to adopt a resolution on Tuesday that would end Japan´s long-standing ban on exercising collective self-defence, or coming to the aid of an ally under attack even if Japan itself is not threatened. Japan´s postwar constitution prohibits the use of force to settle international disputes – a restriction Abe and his supporters say inhibits the country´s ability to protect itself and its allies, despite growing

I imagine the horrified shrieks that rose from the streets outside the Supreme Court on Monday as the decision in the Hobby Lobby case began to filter out into the crowd of liberal observers was reminiscent of those poor souls who watched helplessly as the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire claimed the lives of 146 young, female garment workers. In fact, the similarities are eerie. It seems that liberal commentators have convinced themselves that, just as was the case in 1911, the courts and the country have deemed women to be of lesser value than their male counterparts.

Every generation has its defining technology, and every decade, it seems, needs a label. The sixties were the Space Age, the nineties the Internet Age. The seventies and eighties saw the computer revolution. The decade just passed may come to be known as the Facebook Decade or the Smartphone Era. Without the benefit of hindsight, it’s not always apparent what a new technology will mean or how it will change the way we live. That’s especially true for the period we’ve just entered, which may one day be known as the Age of Big Data, the Dawn of the Cloud,

For a guy who was shot down in Vietnam—and endured five years of hell as a POW in a lost war—John McCain sure is enthusiastic about the use of American air power. The Arizona senator and former Navy aviator always seems to be calling in air strikes. First it was against Moammar Qaddafi’s Libya, then Bashar Assad’s Syria. Now, having harangued both Presidents Bush and Obama over the past decade to send more American manpower into Iraq, McCain is passionately pushing for American air strikes to deal with the violent spillover from Syria. Specifically, McCain wants to obliterate the Islamic State

Report: Canada Pulls Plug on Keystone
Pipeline – Will Send Oil to Asia
Gateway Pundit, by Jim Hoft    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 6/30/2014 5:35:16 AM     Post Reply
The Keystone Pipeline project was expected to create tens of thousands of high paying jobs in the oil industry. The project itself would create 20,000 construction jobs. And the pipeline would bring oil from Canada and North Dakota to refineries in the United States. The proposed project would have extended from Alberta, Canada to Illinois, transporting approximately 400,000 barrels of crude oil per day. Estimated cost is $1.7 billion. But Obama rejected the plan in 2011 and 2014. Democrats are beholden to the radical green movement – the poor and middle class be damned. Now this… Canada pulled the plug on Keystone and will

The long road to John Boehner´s
lawsuit against Obama
Washington Examiner [DC], by David M. Drucker    Original Article

House Speaker John Boehner has been quietly preparing to sue President Obama for months. The Ohio Republican announced just last week that he would spearhead a House lawsuit against the president to challenge, in his view, the Obama administration´s unconstitutional overreach of its executive authority and abrogation of laws passed by Congress. Obama and congressional Democrats are calling the move a political stunt because of the timing of the announcement, which came less than five months before the midterm elections. But Boehner actually started putting the lawsuit together in January.

Obama’s amnesty strategy isn’t a partial shambles: A few months ago, I punditized that (contrary to reports in the press and threats by his allies) President Obama would not take executive actions that amounted to any kind of sweeping de facto amnesty,** at least not before the November election — even if Congress refused to give him the “comprehensive” immigration legislation he wants. I figured Obama would simply keep his base happy with an incremental cutback in deportations, along the lines suggested by former acting Immigration and Customs Enforcement director John Sandweg. Meanwhile he’d hold out hope for a bill. I

The Obama administration is seriously considering a ramp-up of airport security measures over fears Islamic militants are developing a new generation of hard-to-detect bombs in war-torn Syria. The United States may also ask its foreign partners to enhance security at airports overseas, and the issue was discussed at the White House last week during a meeting of top intelligence officials, ABC News reported Sunday. The Department of Homeland Security, FBI and other agencies have for months been weighing action, including a potential public announcement, according to the ABC News report. The concern stems from intelligence about militants in Syria teaming up with Al

“By every economic measure, we are better off now than we were when I took office. You wouldn’t know it, but we are,” the president said Friday. That’s right, the president — the president of the United States, mind you — says Americans are better off, they just don’t know it. That is the height to which the president has raised his level of mendacity. He has the sheer audacity to tell Americans that he has successfully turned the economy around, that things are all good, but that there are no real quantifiable indicators by which they could ever know that.

Facebook’s News Feed—the main list of status updates, messages, and photos you see when you open Facebook on your computer or phone—is not a perfect mirror of the world. But few users expect that Facebook would change their News Feed in order to manipulate their emotional state. We now know that’s exactly what happened two years ago. For one week in January 2012, data scientists skewed what almost 700,000 Facebook users saw when they logged into its service. Some people were shown content with a preponderance of happy and positive words; some were shown content analyzed as sadder than average.

Edward Klein’s book about the animosity between the Clintons and Obamas, “Blood Feud” (Regnery Publishing), rocketed up the best-seller charts since it was featured in The Post last Sunday. Here, in another exclusive excerpt, Klein ­describes how Bill’s health is a preoccupation of the Clintons. A pair of black, armor-plated SUVs swung into a suburban cul-de-sac and crunched to a stop in the driveway of the Clintons’ home in Chappaqua, New York. A wall of burly Secret Service agents jumped out and surrounded the man who emerged from the lead vehicle. It was mid-summer 2013, and Bill Clinton looked shrunken and weary.

President Obama will ask Congress to provide more than $2 billion in new funds to control the surge of illegal Central American migrants at the South Texas border, and to grant broader powers for immigration officials to speed deportations of children caught crossing without their parents, White House officials said on Saturday. Mr. Obama will send a letter on Monday to alert Congress that he will seek an emergency appropriation for rapidly expanding border enforcement actions and humanitarian assistance programs to cope with the influx, which includes record numbers of unaccompanied minors and adults bringing children.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) vowed to crush the Tea Party, and with help from Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) in Kentucky, he did, and nationally, he will. House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) has sent the Tea Party to the back benches, and after the recent defeat of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.), is his successor any different than him? No. Did anything change? No. The Tea Party is not being done in by Democrats; it is being done in by the party of big business, crony capitalism, big money from insider Wall Street and big banks, the Chamber of Commerce and the corporate lobbying wing of the Tea Party's real nemesis:

Bob Beckel is still claiming that Obama didn’t know Ayers – “met him once” – and the other four supposedly conservative journalists had nothing to contradict him with! Every reader of AT knows that Ayers and Obama worked together - that Ayers hired Obama for the biggest job of his life before becoming President – handing out $100 million dollars of the Annenberg Challenge grants to radical causes, instead of using it to help Chicago’s schoolchildren. ere is a preview of the interview from Fox: Stanley Kurtz at the Wall St. Journal:

As thousands of disease-riddled criminals storm across our borders, is it really time to mince words? President Obama appears to have an Agenda for America that stinks worse than a Border Patrol bus depot crammed with urine-drenched illegals. Is the man trying to protect and defend us, or does he want us to kick the bucket, run down the curtain, and join the choir invisible? On January 29, 2014, the Department of Homeland Security advertised for a vendor to escort 65,000 “unaccompanied alien children,” indicating that they not only knew the alien invasion was coming, they planned it.

I am rapidly coming to the preliminary conclusion that Elizabeth Warren will be the Democrats’ 2016 standard bearer. Hillary Clinton is just too unlikable (remember that Barack Obama called her “likable enough” in one of the most memorable back handed compliments of recent political memory), and too transparently greedy, self-serving, and out of touch. Not to mention the appalling foreign affairs crises the United States faces in the wake of her term as Secretary of State. Her brand is tarnished.

Say this for President Obama: He’s got an uncanny ability to block out distractions and keep his eye on the ball. Facing a horrific expansion of terrorism in the Mideast, a meltdown of public support at home and major rebukes by the Supreme Court, the president remains fixated on No. 1. “I’m finding lately I just want to say what’s on my mind,” he told a Minneapolis audience Friday, and then ticked off a series of complaints about — surprise — Republicans. “They don’t do anything, except block me and call me names,” he said. “If they were more interested in growing the

President Barack Obama announced today that he would again go around Congress to enact immigration reform measures. In a hastily scheduled statement this afternoon from the White House Rose Garden, Obama said he would ´greatly prefer´ Congress passing any sort of immigration reform legislation, even if it wasn´t the bill he supports, but he was done sitting around waiting for that to happen. The president said his administration would ´refocus´ its efforts on the border, and he would use his ´existing legal authority´ to do ´what Congress refuses to do´ and fix the broken immigration system.
