WASHINGTON -Michelle Obama and Jill Biden are offering relief to millions of people who care for wounded service members and veterans. At the White House on Friday, the first lady and the wife of Vice President Joe Biden are announcing new steps by private and public sector organizations to help ease the heavy burden on what many say is a vital but largely invisible workforce. They are being joined by former first lady Rosalynn Carter and former Sen. Elizabeth Dole. Carter has a longstanding interest in family caregiving. Dole´s husband, Republican former Sen. Bob Dole of Kansas, lives with lasting

Reading about the assistance being offered, it all sounds okay. Guess what Mrs. Obama, Carter and Dole - these families need MONEY. If these military families were one of the specially protected Democrat voter groups, we dang well would see more than "care giver forums" being offered. You would see finances being poured into the bank accounts of these needy and deserving families to really help out. As it is, photops and everything else but MONEY is given. I cry for these families.

The best ´help´ that the Mooch and Dr Biden could give is to clam up, go away, and make sure the VA settles their claims and gives them medical care promptly. WITHOUT photo ops.

Hopefully, this is more than publicity and a photo opp.

I thought Dr. Biden´s charity was the Horn of Africa.

State leaders want feds to

Associated Press, by Astrid Galvan & Juan Carlos Llorca    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 6/26/2014 3:24:02 AM     Post Reply
NOGALES, Ariz.— The U.S. government is preparing to open a new facility in rural New Mexico to hold hundreds of unaccompanied children arriving from Central America as state officials call on federal authorities to do more to stop the migration. "Dang it, the federal government has got a job to do," Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer said Wednesday in Nogales, where she toured a southern Arizona facility housing nearly 1,000 children apprehended at the U.S.-Mexico border. The surge of border crossings has strained the limits of existing resources, prompting the Republican governor to renew her criticism of the Obama administration´s immigration

Federal Appeals Court:
Gays Have Right to Marry
Associated Press, by Nicholas Riccardi & Brady McCombs    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 6/26/2014 3:10:38 AM     Post Reply
DENVER— A federal appeals court ruled for the first time Wednesday that gay couples have a constitutional right to marry, extending the movement’s legal winning streak and bringing the issue a big step closer to the U.S. Supreme Court. The three-judge panel in Denver ruled 2-1 that states cannot deprive people of the fundamental right to marry simply because they choose a partner of the same sex. The court dismissed as ‘‘wholly illogical’’ the notion that allowing gays to wed could somehow undermine traditional marriage. The decision by the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals panel upheld a lower-court ruling

IRS Commissioner John Koskinen contributed more than $85,000 to Democratic candidates and committees, MRCTV research has discovered - with a $5,000 donation to President Obama in 2012 and $19,000 to the Democratic National Committee from 1988 to 2008. This may explain the fawning "thank yous" Koskinen received for his public service from many Democrats last night on the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. "You know when you´ve got a person who´s given what you´ve given and been brought into difficult circumstances..." said Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) to Koskinen during last night´s

Hillary’s corporate backers

Washington Times (D.C), by Philip Swartz    Original Article

When Hillary Rodham Clinton stepped in front of a podium this week to announce an initiative to train and hire unemployed young Americans, the background was plastered with familiar corporate logos, including JPMorgan Chase, Microsoft and Courtyard Marriott. These are household names to many Americans, but to former President Bill Clinton and Mrs. Clinton, they are known as big-ticket entries in their personal checkbooks. Long before getting behind Mrs. Clinton’s latest public service effort, all three companies enriched Mr. Clinton with six-figure speaking fees that turned the 1990s Arkansas middle-class family into

Shrinkage: Economists are writing off the sharp 2.9% drop in first-quarter GDP as a temporary contraction. Maybe. What isn´t temporary is President Obama´s massively subpar growth record over the past five years. When the Commerce Department said two months ago the economy had eked out a 0.1% gain in the first quarter, the White House and various economists said growth would have been higher if not for the bitter winter. When Commerce revised that number down to -1% in May, the same crowd again blamed Jack Frost. Now that it turns out the economy contracted 2.9% in the first three

President Obama will make the first in a series of trips across the nation to meet ordinary Americans who have written him about their struggles and concerns when he travels to Minnesota on Thursday. The summertime campaign-style travel, which comes as focus is intensifying on the coming midterm elections, will see the president tour communities and hold town-hall meetings on his domestic agenda. (Snip) And Obama will also have an opportunity to fundraise outside of Washington, D.C. On Thursday, the president will appear at a fundraiser benefitting the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. According to an aide, Obama has at least

Hillary Clinton doesn´t need anyone going to bat for her reputation, she said in an interview airing Wednesday - not even her husband Bill. "I shouldn´t have said the five or so words that I said," the former secretary of state conceded to "PBS NewsHour" host Gwen Ifill, referring to a comment she made that her irrefutably privileged family was "dead broke" upon its departure from the White House. "But my unartful use of those few words doesn´t change who I am, what I´ve stood for my entire life, what I stand for today." After a tumultuous couple of weeks

NEW YORK- A Chicago-area lawyer and accountant labeled by the government as history´s most prolific and unrepentant tax cheat was sentenced Wednesday to 15 years in prison, and the judge bemoaned the "incredible greed" of some of America´s wealthiest people for taking advantage of the tax shelters he peddled. The lawyer, Paul M. Daugerdas, 63, was ordered to pay nearly a half-billion dollars in restitution and forfeit $164 million in cash and property, including a lakefront Wisconsin home, after he was convicted at trial last year of conspiracy, tax evasion and mail fraud. He must report to prison Sept. 18.

The Republican National Committee has selected Cleveland and Dallas as finalists to host the 2016 Republican National Convention. Denver and Kansas City were eliminated. RNC Site Selection Committee Chairwoman Enid Mickelsen issued a statement: “After extensive review the site selection committee has chosen Cleveland and Dallas as finalists for the 2016 convention. Cleveland and Dallas demonstrated their ability to host a phenomenal convention in 2016, and the RNC is excited about the prospect of hosting our convention in either of these great cities.

Does the federal government have any systems at all to back its email archives? Maybe not, because the Environmental Protection Agency is now using the same excuse as the IRS is using in response to a Congressional subpoena: the computer ate our homework. In a hearing Wednesday before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy said the agency was still trying to recover the emails from a now-retired employee who was involved in a controversial EPA evaluation of a proposed mine project in Alaska´s Bristol Bay. Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., asked McCarthy: "Were all of his

(Video) The White House press office misspelled the name of President Ronald Reagan twice in an email announcing President Obama’s Wednesday schedule. “Later in the evening, the President will deliver remarks at the League of Conservation Voters Capital Dinner at the Ronald Regan (sic) Building and International Trade Center. This event is open to pre-credentialed media,” the email said, The Weekly Standard reported. The email again misspelled “Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center” in the 7:10 time slot on the president’s schedule. The White House’s online post of the president’s schedule also remained misspelled as of Wednesday

(Video) Hillary Clinton’s book tour has not gone as well as she hoped – her interviews filled with gaffe after gaffe – so she brought in a little help from a man who has a bit more experience with laying on the charm: the Bubba himself. As if there’s no turning back now, the Clintons are only leaning into the “dead broke” statement even more. Speaking with NBC News’ David Gregory before the Clinton Global Initiative, the former president asserted that the family was “several million dollars in debt” following the impeachment scandal. He says they had no idea they

A week after an NBC News poll showed that the American people had lost faith in Obama´s competence and ability to lead, a new CBS News/New York Times poll has even worse news for a president embattled by his own incompetence, arrogance, and failed policies. In just one month, the president´s job approval rating has shifted a full 9 points against him. Though Obama was still upside on approval by 5 points (43-48%) back in May, he now faces a 14 point deficit of 40-54%. In just one month, disapproval of Obama´s foreign policy has skyrocketed a full 10 points

With a surprisingly wide margin of victory, Congressman James Lankford won the Oklahoma Republican U.S. Senate primary, defeating former Speaker of the State House of Representatives T.W. Shannon by 23 points and avoiding a runoff election. Lankford now becomes the prohibitive favorite to replace outgoing Senator Tom Coburn, who is retiring with two years remaining in his current term. This was a very different race from the one taking place in Mississippi. Despite negative ads run against Lankford by conservative groups, the Oklahoma contest was not an example of an “establishment” Republican or RINO versus a Tea Party candidate. In

Women vote Democrat because they are smarter, Obama said to a White House audience Monday afternoon. He made the remark at the end of a talk at the White House Summit on Working Families. “Somebody asked: ‘Well, it’s well-known that women are more likely to vote for Democrats,’ to which I said, women are smarter,” Obama said. “This is true.” The rest of Obama’s talk centered on paid maternity leave, a minimum wage of $10.10, flexibility in the workplace, and access to childcare. He blamed Congress for moving slowly after he asked it to raise the minimum wage and when

Thad Cochran’s political resurrection began with a campaign shakeup and ended with a Hail Mary television ad. Just three weeks ago, in the dead of night on June 3, the Mississippi senator’s staff sat shaken and dejected, crestfallen at the results of a primary that deprived the six-term incumbent of an electoral majority. With Cochran forced into a runoff fight against an aggressive and energetic challenger, a dark mood shadowed his backers in Washington and Mississippi.Yet almost immediately, the Cochran coalition began bouncing back. Even on that gloomy night of June 3, Cochran adviser Stuart Stevens was insisting to staffers: “We’re

Two years after activists for same-sex marriage obtained the confidential tax return and donor list of a national group opposed to redefining marriage, the Internal Revenue Service has admitted wrongdoing and agreed to settle the resulting lawsuit. The Daily Signal has learned that, under a consent judgment today, the IRS agreed to pay $50,000 in damages to the National Organization for Marriage as a result of the unlawful release of the confidential information to a gay rights group, the Human Rights Campaign, that is NOM’s chief political rival. “Congress made the disclosure of confidential tax return information a serious matter for

Krauthammer said that things are pretty bad, but noted, “There’s a big difference between decline as a condition and decline as a choice. What we have with Obama is a president choosing decline.” He continued, “We are in a position to dominate again, but we have a president who doesn’t believe in American exceptionalism, American greatness, and he has chosen for America to retreat from the Middle East, to not lift a finger in places like Ukraine, basically to make us one nation among others.” Krauthammer said Obama is comfortable with

National conservative groups are angry after incumbent Mississippi Sen. Thad Cochran pulled off a victory in the state’s GOP run-off — likely because of his campaign’s outreach to Democratic voters. “It’s disgraceful that self-described GOP leaders like Mitch McConnell, John McCain, the Chamber of Commerce and the NRSC would champion a campaign platform of pork barrel spending and insider deal-making, while recruiting Democrats to show up at the polls,” Matt Kibbe of FreedomWorks said after the results came in. Tuesday’s closely-watched run-off came after conservative state Sen. Chris McDaniel edged Cochran in votes in the initial election earlier this month.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has had a rough time of it ever since she asserted that both she and her husband were “dead broke” and “struggled” after leaving the White House in 2001. “A few weeks before they left the White House, the Clintons were able to muster a cash down payment of $855,000 and secure a $1.995 million mortgage,” Politifact observed. “This hardly fits the common meaning of ‘dead broke.’” Clinton might have taken the public backlash over this minor gaffe in stride, but she didn’t.

Given the bitter nature of the runoff in Mississippi, this probably surprises no one, but it’s also unlikely to produce any further surprises. After a narrow loss to incumbent Senator Thad Cochran, Chris McDaniel refused to concede last night. Instead, he blasted Cochran’s GOTV strategy and promised a challenge to the results: State Sen. Chris McDaniel will challenge the results of the Tuesday runoff election where 41-year incumbent Sen.

Apparently because he doesn´t get out of the White House enough (?) -- or have enough to do? -- President Obama will travel to Minnesota on Thursday to "spend a day with Rebekah," described by the White House as a "hardworking mom from Minneapolis," who wrote to the president to tell him "how much harder it´s become to get ahead and do right by her family." When the president receives letters like Rebekah´s, he "makes notes in the margins, and sits down to reply personally," the White House said. This time, he´s made plans to meet with Rebekah -- on Thursday --
