UConn happily reminded President Obama he
picked Michigan State to win the NCAA tournament

USA Today, by Chris Chase

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 3/31/2014 10:32:04 AM

Like everyone wearing a suit in Bristol and the majority of people in your NCAA tournament pool, President Barack Obama picked No. 4 seed Michigan State to win the national championship. That prediction up in smoke on Sunday, with Connecticut’s 60-54 upset (but not really an upset) win over the Spartans. The official UConn sports Twitter account was all too happy to remind the president about his pick.(Snip for Tweet)POTUS has opted for the safety of a “wisdom of crowds” approach to his NCAA tournament picks in the past, foregoing the trailblazing tactics that are sink or swim for poolers.

Name one thing that Obama promoted or endorsed during his life that failed to go bad.

His choices are failures.

His endorsement is the kiss of death.

I do recall Barry´s prediction that Michigan State would win the NCAA.
And because of that, I watched the game yesterday, and became a UConn fan.
I actually don´t like UConn, but the enemy of my enemy is my friend.
Stick it, Barry

Sad that regardless of who he picked, that the President and the media spent so much time on such a relatively unimportant task compared to the real world difficulties he should be facing.

Yet another example of wanting to have the trappings of the Presidency instead of working for the national interests.

‘Phony scandals’ and an
election year ‘demon’: Lois
Lerner’s unconvincing defenders
Hot Air, by Noah Rothman    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 6/29/2014 4:29:39 PM     Post Reply
Judging from an appearance on CNN by former IRS executive Lois Lerner’s attorney, William Taylor III, the embattled former IRS official at the center of the targeting scandal is embracing an argument similar to the White House’s defense of the IRS as a whole: Republicans are on a political witch-hunt. More accurately, Taylor’s defense of his client is based on the notion that Lerner is the real victim of targeting here. “She was as upset as anybody else was about the loss of the emails and the other documents which were on their which were quite important to her,” Taylor said of

George Zimmerman says he is homeless and jobless but spends $100 a month on vacations and $200 a month on counseling. According to recently filed divorce papers documenting his finances, Zimmerman listed assets totaling $14,000, which accounts for his 2008 Honda pickup and debts of $2.5 million in legal fees, the Orlando Sentinel reported. The 30-year-old former Neighboorhood Watch volunteer was found not guilty last year of shooting to death Trayvon Martin, an unarmed 17-year-old walking through Zimmerman’s housing complex in Sanford, Fla. His wife, Shellie, filed for divorce two months after his acquittal for the 2012 killing. As part of those proceedings, Zimmerman

I’m perplexed. You can’t turn on the TV without seeing all the 1-percenter millionaire Democrat politicians professing their support for the “dreamers” who are swarming across the Rio Grande, bringing turmoil, tattoos and tuberculosis in their wake. Barack Obama says these “children” represent the “future,” and I’m sure he fervently hopes they do. Che Guevara wanted two, three, many Vietnams. Barack wants two, three, many Foss Parks, as in the once-safe Somerville common that was, uh, “liberated” by the dreamers of MS-13. But why aren’t Barack and his moonbat minions celebrating diversity by taking these undocumented Democrats in? And by “in” I

Clinton adviser: Independent
prosecutor needed for IRS

WASHINGTON — A close adviser to Hillary Clinton agrees with Republicans that it’s time for an independent prosecutor to investigate alleged IRS targeting of conservative groups and missing e-mails. Lanny Davis — who was a counselor to President Bill Clinton — said the IRS needs intense scrutiny from an outside investigator. “There’s no Democrat that I know of that wouldn’t be asking a Republican administration to conduct an independent investigation” if Republicans were in charge, Davis said Friday. Davis referenced the disclosure that IRS official Lois Lerner proposed investigating Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) after she received an invitation intended for him. The invite

In the current overload of Obama administration scandals and strategic disasters distracting our attention, it is easy to ignore a more central truth: The Obama administration is hastening the destruction of America from within. The latest disaster is allowing Iraq to slide into a full sectarian civil war, which when added to the other scandals that include Benghazi, the Internal Revenue Service, Veterans Affairs, illegal immigration and Ukraine, the American public’s attention is clearly on overload. As a result, not much attention has been paid to the recent meeting in Switzerland between high-level U.S. and Iranian delegates that made absolutely no

Chris McDaniel isn’t going win any
challenge to the Mississippi results
Washington Post, by Phillip Bump    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 6/28/2014 8:09:32 AM     Post Reply
There are two arguments that advocates of Chris McDaniel are using to suggest that the results of Tuesday´s Republican Senate run-off election in Mississippi should be overturned. First, they argue that voters who voted in the Democratic primary and the Republican run-off should be eliminated from the total. And, second, they argue that Mississippi law prevents someone from voting in a party primary who won´t support the general election candidate. Neither argument will work. In the first case, there are almost certainly not enough Democratic primary/GOP runoff ballots to make up the nearly 7,000-vote gap between McDaniel and incumbent Sen. Thad

A fired live-in nanny who had refused to leave a Southern California home and threatened to sue has disappeared, the family said Friday. Marcella Bracamonte told ABC News that 64-year-old Diane Stretton left the home in Upland, San Bernardino County, on Thursday morning and hasn´t returned. She left behind her belongings. "I don´t know what happened," Bracamonte said. The story of the nanny who wouldn´t leave became national news this week. Bracamonte and her husband, Ralph, told how they had hired Stretton in March to help care for their three children, ages 1, 4 and 11, in exchange for free

The Clinton comeback tour is not going exactly as planned. “Clintons taking turns explaining family fortune only worsens their PR problem,” says Mediaite columnist Joe Concha, who has followed the trajectory of the Clinton wealth matter since it first surfaced some two weeks ago, at the start of Hillary Clinton’s much-ballyhooed book tour. “First it was Hillary. Then Hillary again. Then Chelsea. Back to Hillary. And now Bill,” he notes, framing the wealth dance as a “bizarre start to their reintroduction tour.” Mr. Concha also cites a glaring, basic factor. “The Clintons should be so much better than this. Seasoned pros. Meticulous prep.

Mark Sanford’s Path of Most Resistance

It had been a 14-hour day of campaign-style barnstorming, but at nearly 11 p.m. there was something Mark Sanford felt compelled to show me. We were hiking across the Coosaw Plantation, an enviable slice of Southern landscape that Sanford’s family owns. Nestled in the marshy South Carolina coastline, it has ancient live oaks and twisting palmettos, cascading Spanish moss and views of the Coosaw River and the Atlantic beyond. But I could see none of it as we walked in the pitch black. The moon that was supposed to light our path was stubbornly hanging low, and I was relying on

Before I continue with my string of posts on the theme of reform conservatism’s correct views on everything, let me make a brief foray into real-world politics: Yesterday Senator Marco Rubio gave a domestic policy speech, co-hosted by Hillsdale College and the YG Network, that’s worth reading if you’re interested in what a reformist vision looks like when it’s an actual Republican politician (rather than a tribe of conservative scribblers) giving it form and substance. Naturally, it strikes me as a very impressive and encouraging speech. But I think I would say that even if I were less inclined to

   

 



 
Chris McDaniel´s Lesson:
Clueless Conservatism Loses
Forbes, by Louis Woodhill    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 6/27/2014 10:10:09 AM     Post Reply
In Tuesday’s Republican primary runoff in Mississippi, Chris McDaniel could have run on an economic growth platform and won, but he chose to run as a clueless conservative, and he lost. The lesson from this race is clear. If conservatives forget that economic growth is the signature Republican issue, they should expect to lose. Yes, the actions taken by the Republican establishment to help incumbent senator Thad Cochran were egregious and disgusting, but if McDaniel had given the electorate any sign that he knew how to fix the economy (which is the voters’ #1 concern right now), he would have won

He’s the increasing rare Republican who doesn’t outright frighten the electorate. And the way things are going, the Indiana governor might end up being the last candidate standing. Even at a gathering of Republican bigwigs who have come together on the occasion of a speech by Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, it is hard to find very many people who are very excited about Mike Pence. And so in the lobby of the Sheraton Hotel in midtown Manhattan, at the annual New York State Republican Party dinner, two top GOP operatives were lifting up their pant legs to compare their respective argyle socks,

Currently traveling in Minnesota, Barack Obama appears to be bristling at the notion that House Republicans are set to challenge him in the courts. PBS characterizes his demeanor as "mocking." Perhaps. But observers of he Obama White House might note that he often becomes petulant, if not downright immature whenever he feels his presumed authority is being challenged by another branch of America´s Constitutional form of government. “They’re not doing anything, and then they’re mad at me for doing something,” Mr. Obama said of Republican lawmakers, adding, “They’ve decided they’re going to sue me for doing my job.” This came

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.

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:

With the news of a massive influx of immigrants on the southern border, a new Gallup Poll shows that only 22% of Americans favor increased immigration. Only 14% of Republicans, 23% of independents, and 27% of Democrats favor increased immigration. The poll actually revealed a strong desire among Americans to decrease immigration, as 41% of respondents thought immigration should be decreased. This included 50% of GOP voters, 43% of independents, and 32% of Democrats. The percentage of those preferring to decrease immigration has jumped from 35% in 2012 and 2013 to 41% in 2014.

A black man in New Jersey has filed a lawsuit against his former employer, Benjamin Moore Paints, which he says named one of its paint colors after him and then fired him when he complained. Clinton Tucker, who managed online sales for Benjamin Moore, which is owned by the conglomerate Berkshire Hathaway, said that he was bothered by the names of several of the company’s paint colors, “Clinton Brown,” “Tucker Chocolate,” and “Confederate Red.” “Being a black man named Clinton Tucker, the plaintiff found this to be extremely racially offensive,” reads the complaint, filed in Essex County Court.

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.

And in an interview with POLITICO, Lerner’s lawyer says it’s “a little brazen to think she did this on purpose.” William Taylor III says all the Republican hand-wringing about Lerner doing something sinister is just “silly” because, he said, she honestly doesn’t know what happened to the emails.

Dear Secretary Clinton, Please consider this in the nature of a friendly intervention. You have a money problem. It’s time to deal with it before it gets worse. Actually, you have two money problems. The first is how you talk about it. The second is how you collect it — or, to be more precise, the fact that you’re still frenetically collecting it. Let me be clear at the outset: The issue isn’t that you’re rich, or even that you and your husband became rich after leaving office. American voters don’t have a problem with wealthy candidates or even wealthy ex-presidents

What transpired in the Mississippi Senate run-off is a red line for many conservatives across the country, because the Republican Party establishment essentially took a civil war and escalated it to a war for independence. It’s one thing to oppose your base in a primary. It’s entirely another to despicably play the race card against your base, and bolster the legitimacy of the propaganda of our race-baiting opponents on the Left. But that’s exactly what the Kamikaze pilots running the GOP did. As a result, Chris McDaniel won Republican voters handily on Tuesday, but still lost the run-off statewide thanks
