The Democrats’ Koch habit
won’t help them in November

Washington Post, by Ed Rogers

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 4/11/2014 5:25:11 AM

From the anti-Koch ads running in Senate campaigns to Senator Harry Reid’s (D-NV) rant claiming the latest Ryan budget is a gift tailor-made for the Kochs, the Koch brothers appear to be everywhere the Democrats look. Or, the Democrats want to make it seem like the Kochs are everywhere. I’m not really sure. I think it’s kind of weird. A majority of Americans have never even heard of the Koch brothers. The general public could not pick the brothers out of a lineup with Pussy Riot, yet the Democrats continue to expend a lot of time, energy and money trying to

A government-contracted security force threatened to arrest doctors and nurses if they divulged any information about the contagion threat at a refugee camp housing illegal alien children at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas, sources say. In spite of the threat, several former camp workers broke their confidentiality agreements and shared exclusive details with me about the dangerous conditions at the camp. They said taxpayers deserve to know about the contagious diseases and the risks the children pose to Americans. I have agreed to not to disclose their identities because they fear retaliation and prosecution.

Patriotic Waffle House Takes a Strict
Stance Against Belgian Waffles
Atlantic Wire, by Adam Chandler    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 7/1/2014 4:11:22 PM     Post Reply
Once it became clear that the U.S. men´s national soccer team would be facing Belgium in the World Cup, waffle-loving Americans fell (or, perhaps, were unwittingly pushed) into a sharp divide between deliciousness and patriotism. Belgium, as we noted today, is cherished for many great things. Perhaps, the most well-known and celebrated — gluten be damned — is the Belgian waffle. But as the game approached, affinity for Belgian waffles transformed into the modern day analogue of "Freedom fry" patriotism, putting the breakfast regular under assault. Leading the way, was that great staple of the American South, Waffle House, which

Allegations Of Vote Buying In Mississippi …
Daily Caller, by Matt K. Lewis    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 7/1/2014 4:03:25 PM     Post Reply
If you read conservative outlets like RedState or Breitbart — or even if you just get Chris McDaniel’s email alerts — you’re aware of allegations of vote buying in Mississippi. If the allegations are true, it’s reprehensible. But the problem is that they’re coming from a less than reputable source. The African-American pastor alleging that he was offered money to buy votes for Thad Cochran was also paid by the reporter for the story. This is both ironic and problematic: If you’re the kind of person who is willing to participate in a vote-buying scheme, isn’t it possible you’d also be the

Mayfield family plans lawsuit,
charges against Madison

Mark Mayfield´s family plans to sue or bring charges against the city of Madison, its police department or "anyone responsible" after Mayfield´s apparent suicide Friday. Mayfield´s relatives, already angered over his arrest in May in the U.S. Sen. Thad Cochran photo scandal, say Madison police were trespassing when they showed up at his home in Ridgeland after he apparently shot himself. They say Mayfield´s arrest was politically motivated by supporters of Cochran and drove him to suicide. "The funeral is (Tuesday), but the first of next week, we will be suing the city of Madison," said Mayfield´s nephew, Ridgeland Alderman Wesley Hamlin.

Israel Strikes 34 ´Terror Targets´ in
Gaza After Bodies of Israeli Teens Found
ABC News, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 7/1/2014 4:42:58 AM     Post Reply
The Israeli Air Force carried out what it called "precision strikes" on 34 "terror targets" in the Gaza Strip overnight, after the discovery of the bodies of three Israeli teenagers who were kidnapped in the West Bank earlier this month. The Israeli Defense Forces said the strikes were in response to rockets being launched earlier into Israel from Gaza. The waves of rockets from Gaza and IDF retaliations have picked up since the teens were kidnapped and the Israeli crackdown began. Hamas has not claimed responsibility for launching the rockets but Israel holds them responsible for everything coming out of Gaza. The Israel Defense

If you haven’t caught World Cup fever yet, this video may just do the trick. After a nail-biting series of matches in the group round, the United States soccer team will make their entrance in the knockout round on Tuesday afternoon. They will be taking on Belgium, which won all three games in its group round. The U.S. shed its underdog status last week, when it got out of a group that everyone said it wouldn’t. Now, with the rest of the world rooting for the other side, the players on Team USA plan to flip the script.

West Africa can’t manage
the Ebola outbreak
Washington Post, by Editorial    Original Article

An alarming report released last week by Doctors Without Borders said that West Africa’s current Ebola outbreak is “out of control.” That should shock the governments of Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia into action. It marks a frightening moment for a disease that has been contained numerous times before. The outbreak, already the deadliest in history, had killed almost 400 people as of Thursday. It began in March but then slowed, causing the Guinean president to declare to the World Health Organization (WHO) in April that “the situation is well in hand.” But all was not well, and complacency led to

Tea party leader Mark Mayfield suicide:
A sign of politics ´beyond the pale´?

ATLANTA — Mark Mayfield, a respected lawyer and tea party operative in Mississippi, has died after being accused of taking part in an unseemly, Watergate-like conspiracy to undermine long-time Sen. Thad Cochran’s campaign. No foul play is suspected around the self-inflicted gunshot wound, local police said. Mr. Mayfield left a note behind, but authorities have not released it. A tea party group board member, Mayfield had worked to get Sen. Cochran’s challenger Chris McDaniel elected. On Tuesday, Cochran narrowly won the primary. Mr. McDaniel has denied involvement, and has not been implicated in the scheme to photograph Cochran´s wife at a nursing

It has become a familiar lament, and a panel on CBS’s Face the Nation on Sunday reproduced it perfectly: Why does President Barack Obama seem so ill-equipped to meet the challenges of the moment. Amid sagging job approval ratings, prompted by a series of crises abroad and an economic recovery that more closely resembles a new recession, a panel of political veterans pondered all the reasons why Obama seems to be floundering. Vanity Fair’s Todd Purdum, the author of a book on the passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, was asked by CBS host Bob Schieffer whether Obama has the mastery

WASHINGTON - A Marine who was declared a deserter nearly 10 years ago after disappearing in Iraq and then returning to the U.S. claiming he had been kidnapped, only to disappear again, is back in U.S. custody, officials said Sunday. Cpl. Wassef Ali Hassoun, 34, turned himself in and was being flown Sunday from an undisclosed location in the Middle East to Norfolk, Virginia. He is to be moved Monday to Camp Lejeune in North Carolina, according to a spokesman, Capt. Eric Flanagan. Maj. Gen. Raymond Fox, commander of the 2nd Marine Expeditionary Force at Lejeune, will determine whether to court martial

TOKYO -- North Korea said Monday it is preparing to try two Americans who entered the country as tourists for carrying out what it says were hostile acts against the country. Though a small number of U.S. citizens visit North Korea each year as tourists, the State Department strongly advises against it. Investigations into Americans Matthew Todd Miller and Jeffrey Edward Fowle concluded that suspicions about their hostile acts have been confirmed by evidence and their testimonies, Pyongyang´s official Korean Central News Agency said in a short report. KCNA said North Korea is making preparations to bring them before a court. It

Megyn Kelly faced off with former Weather Underground leader Bill Ayers in an explosive interview tonight in which Kelly repeatedly confronted Ayers about bombings and killings that the radical group was reportedly involved in. Kelly asked Ayers how many bombings he was personally responsible for. Ayers declined to answer, but did acknowledge the “terrible risk” they took with some of their more out-there tactics. Kelly grilled him on how the Weather Underground “declared a state of war against the U.S. government” and encouraged violence. Kelly went through a series of instances in which the Weather Underground was tied to bombings and killings,

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

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.

Today, the Supreme Court ruled in the nationally followed Hobby Lobby case. The for-profit corporations that brought these cases to the Supreme Court—a craft store and a cabinet manufacturer—argued that the corporations’ religious convictions should excuse them from compensating their employees through the comprehensive health insurance required by law. Specifically, these private employers sought to exclude insurance coverage of several forms of birth control because, contrary to medical and scientific evidence, the corporations’ owners believe some birth control causes abortions. The Affordable Care Act already includes special arrangements for houses of worship and religious non-profits, like schools and hospitals. Houses

One week after traveling to Mississippi to do his utmost to help Senator Thad Cochran (R) beat Tea Party rival Chris McDaniel, Senator John McCain (R-AZ) talked about the strengths he saw in Cochran´s approach to campaigning. According to AZ Central, McCain dismissed criticism over the tactics the Republican Establishment used to get black Democrats to cross over and vote for Cochran. Said McCain, "There are some people complaining that African-American voters voted. [But] I thought one of the major priorities of the Republican Party was to get all minority and ethnic voters out to vote for Republicans." He described Cochran´s "get-out-the-vote campaign"

Sasha Obama turned 13 earlier this month, and it seems her father is making every effort to ensure they stay close throughout her teenage years. The President and his younger daughter were pictured on Sunday enjoying a hike at Great Falls Park in McLean, Virginia, with Obama lovingly put an arm around her as they walked through the woods. Meanwhile, Malia - whose 16th birthday is on July 4th - spent the day at Disneyland in Anaheim, California, where she and a friend were given VIP access to many of the park´s rides.

Despite appalling conditions in the holding pens and warehouses that are now full of Central American children, House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi said she was "dazzled" by what she saw at the U.S.-Mexico border on Saturday: "What we just saw was so stunning, if you believe as we do, that every child, every person, has the park of divinity in them, and is therefore worthy of respect, what we saw in those rooms was (a) dazzling, sparkling array of God´s children, worthy of respect." Speaking in Brownsville, Texas, Pelosi used the word "crisis," but then backed off a bit: "So we have to
