There’s Nobody Madder than Steve
LaTourette About GOP Disunity!
PJ Media, by Paula Bolyard    Original Article

Mainstreet Advocacy’s website brags about it’s goal of Team Spirit and Republican Unity: Our mission is to bring together those who care about this country after decades of hyper-partisanship and dysfunction in Washington. Our goal is unity instead of division, supported by a commitment to governing with core principles. Except that it’s a nearly universally acknowledged fact that the goal of former Republican Congressman Steve LaTourette’s PAC is to elect moderates and take out those pesky Tea Party types who won’t fall in line with the status quo in Washington. The Defending Main Street SuperPAC launched vicious attacks

Oops. Also, Communists lie. Thomas Piketty’s book, ‘Capital in the Twenty-First Century’, has been the publishing sensation of the year. Its thesis of rising inequality tapped into the zeitgeist and electrified the post-financial crisis public policy debate. High quality global journalism requires investment.

What am I missing here? There must be some inside joke or allusion I’m not getting that explains why you’d introduce this slogan during the one week more than any other of his presidency that illustrates what a terrible, disengaged manager he is. It’d be like the RNC rolling out a “Prosperity” bumper sticker the week of the financial crash in 2008. So, obviously, it refers to something else. But … what?

How America Treats
Illegal Aliens vs. Veterans
Cybercast News Service, by Michelle Malkin    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 5/23/2014 2:58:42 PM     Post Reply
A government that fails to secure its borders is guilty of dereliction of duty. A government that fails to care for our men and women on the frontlines is guilty of malpractice. A government that puts the needs of illegal aliens above U.S. veterans for political gain should be prosecuted for criminal neglect bordering on treason. Compare, contrast and weep: In Sacramento, Calif., lawmakers are moving forward with a budget-busting plan to extend government-funded health insurance to at least 1.5 million illegal aliens. In Los Angeles, federal bureaucrats callously canceled an estimated 40,000 diagnostic tests and treatments for American veterans

WASHINGTON — White House officials have been holding private meetings this week aimed at soothing lawmakers´ concerns over the U.S. posture in Syria, the future of the American military presence in Afghanistan and defense spending. The meetings come as a frustrated White House seeks to push back at criticism of President Barack Obama´s foreign policy. But the White House outreach appeared to be having little effect on some lawmakers´ concerns. Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker, the top Republican on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, described Tuesday night´s White House meeting with chief of staff Denis McDonough and national security adviser Susan Rice as

Former McCain Adviser: Amnesty

On Thursday, a former adviser to Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) and the president of a think tank that supports the Senate´s amnesty bill said America needed sweeping amnesty legislation and more immigrants because native-born Americans are not making enough babies. "Like all important policy issues, it comes down to sex," Douglas Holtz-Eakin, who advised McCain during the 2008 campaign, said Thursday at a National Journal event on immigration. "The blunt fact is the native-born population does not have a fertility rate high enough to keep the population growing." His comments on a panel with five others echoed former Florida governor and potential

Boehner: ´Hard Time´ Distinguishing
Establishment GOP From Tea Party

House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) has been frustrated by the Tea Party movement that gave him his Speakership after the historic 2010 midterm elections, but he said on Thursday that there was not much of a difference between establishment Republicans and those in the Tea Party. "I´m not going to get into this distinction between the Tea Party and Republicans," Boehner said, according to Talking Points Memo. "It´s a distinction you´re going to have a hard time finding." Boehner was responding to a question about establishment-backed candidates and incumbents who won their primary elections on Tuesday in Oregon, Idaho, Kentucky,

Obama´s crisis management:
Duck, deny, get outside fixer

President Obama´s response to the swirling scandal at the Department of Veterans Affairs has followed a predictable pattern. Halfway into his second term, the president seems to have developed his own crisis-management playbook. Step 1: Avoid getting any skin in the game for as long as possible. Allow Cabinet members to take the heat in headlines and congressional hearings. Step 2: Have White House press secretary Jay Carney repeatedly express confidence in the Cabinet secretary caught up in the controversy. Rinse and repeat for days, weeks or months. Step 3: When public attention reaches a tipping point, have White House officials speak out on

Taxpayers Paid $5.6 Million
for Climate Change Games
Washington Free Beacon, by Elizabeth Harrington    Original Article

Taxpayers paid more than $5 million to create climate change games, including voicemails from the future warning that “neo-luddites” will kill global warming enthusiasts by 2035. Columbia University’s Climate Center has received $5.7 million from the National Science Foundation for the university’s “PoLAR Climate Change Education Partnership,” to “engage adult learners and inform public understanding and response to climate change.” Based on the theory that games “motivate exploration and learning of complex material,” the school created “Future Coast,” a website that features hundreds of made up voicemails painting a dire picture of the future as a result of climate change. “There’s a lot

HARLEM — For decades, they’ve battled for supremacy atop Harlem’s political order: Democratic Rep. Charles Rangel, the polished committee chairman and power broker, and the Rev. Al Sharpton, the tracksuit-clad bomb-throwing civil rights leader. Now Sharpton, looking svelte and dapper on his daily MSNBC show, may have his chance to finally take out Rangel — at age 83 and in the toughest, almost certainly final, reelection fight of his 43-year congressional career. It’s a sweet turn for Sharpton, who could never quite win acceptance among the established political class here that Rangel led. When Sharpton, 59, ran for mayor and

Obama Stroll Forces Pregnant

Chicago residents are complaining that President Obama’s visit to fundraise in his former hometown of Chicago was inconvenient to them. Paola Deming, eight months pregnant, was forced to park her car two blocks away because of the large amount of security present. “It’s kind of crazy. I needed to park my car, like, two blocks from here. And since I’m expecting, it was a hard walk for me,” she told WBBM.

The Real Extremists Are Being Exposed

Since when did it become “extremist” to be pro-life, pro-family, and pro-marriage? On May 10th I wrote an article entitled “Anti-Christian Activists Will Defeat Themselves.” Within days, my thesis was being confirmed. Last week, Martha MacCallum, sitting in for Megyn Kelly on Fox, hosted a heated exchange between Dana Loesch and Democrat strategist Jessica Erlich “about the Benham Brothers being discriminated against for their Christian beliefs by SunTrust Bank, which had announced that they were cutting business ties with the twin brothers.” (Suntrust reversed its decision 24 hours after dropping the Benhams, with apologies.) Erlich began her comments by saying, “What I find

President Obama is taking a swipe at the Founding Fathers, blaming his inability to move his agenda on the “disadvantage” of having each state represented equally in the Senate. At a Democratic fundraiser in Chicago Thursday night, Mr. Obama told a small group of wealthy supporters that there are several hurdles to keeping Democrats in control of the Senate and recapturing the House. One of those problems, he said, is the apportionment of two Senate seats to each state regardless of population. “Obviously, the nature of the Senate means that California has the same number of Senate seats as Wyoming.

Fox News anchor Gregg Jarrett was fueled by a potent cocktail of prescription drugs and vodka when he was arrested at a Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport bar on Wednesday. Admitting to police that he had started drinking at 9am that morning, the troubled 59-year-old journalist was taken into custody at 12.39pm at the Northern Lights Grill in the airport´s main terminal. Once in jail, Jarrett, who was carrying papers indicating that he had just been released from rehab, launched into a furious and confrontational tirade at police, repeatedly screaming, ´f*** you´, before officers physically subdued him. He remained in Hennepin County Jail until around

Phil Robertson included remarks in a sermon in his church West Monroe, Louisiana that harken back to the "Duck Dynasty" star´s past anti-gay remarks. Robertson included homosexuals with other groups, including thieves, drunks and adulterers, as hell-bound sinners in a sermon he gave on Easter that was recorded and put up on the church´s website. “Neither the sexually immoral, nor the idolators, nor adulterers, nor male prostitutes, nor homosexual offenders, nor thieves, nor greedy, nor drunkards, nor slanderers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God,” Robertson said, paraphrasing a verse from Corinthians in the

Guess what, some dads feel that way too.

Why do some political scandals stick while others fade? The level of media obsession seems to rise and fall as mysteriously as the stock market. On Benghazi, sell. Hold on the IRS audits. On the Department of Veterans Affairs scandal, buy, buy, buy. In the broader scandal market, fraud or criminality helps. Political intrigue is a plus. Sexual content increases attention but may eventually seem pathetically human and excusable. Conservatives are convinced that the liberal media are harder on Republicans. There is a natural human tendency to attribute good motives to people with whom you agree — and corrupt motives

A federal just has put U.S. Rep. John Conyers, the second most senior Democrat in the House of Representatives, back on a Michigan congressional primary ballot, after he was struck off because most of the petition signatures he presented were ruled invalid. Conyers had lost an initial appeal Friday morning when Michigan election officials found problems with more than half of the Democrat´s nominating petitions. [Snip] But just hours later, Detroit federal Judge Matthew Leitman issued an injunction ordering election officials to put Conyers´ name on the ballot while larger constitutional issues are sorted out. Leitman was appointed in July 2013

If you are part of the large contingent of the American population that opposes Obamacare, one Democratic senator says it’s probably because you’re a racist. “I think it is very important to take a long view at what’s going on here,” retiring West Virginia Sen. Jay Rockefeller, the chair of the of the Senate Commerce, Science & Transportation Committee, said at a Wednesday committee hearing on Obamacare. “I’ll be able to dig up some emails that make part of the Affordable Care Act that doesn’t look good — especially from people who made up their mind that they don’t want it

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell vowed Thursday that if given the opportunity to lead the Senate he would watch over the upper chamber in a much different fashion that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. Speaking at the American Enterprise Institute, Mr. McConnell said Mr. Reid, Nevada Democrat, has done “tremendous damage” to the comity of the Senate that is essential to the chamber’s operations. “He has turned the Senate into a graveyard of good ideas,” the Kentucky Republican, accusing Mr. Reid of blocking amendments from both parties and circumventing the normal committee process. “He has muzzled the people’s representatives and, through them,

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., repeatedly put the blame for the Veterans Affairs scandal on former President George W. Bush, while arguing that her party has worked hard for veterans in recent years. Pelosi took a shot at Bush while saying that the scandal is a high priority for Obama. "He sees the ramifications of some seeds that were sown a long time ago, when you have two wars over a long period of time and many, many more, millions more veterans," she told reporters during her Thursday press briefing. "And so, I know that he is upset about it."

An elderly Pakistani immigrant beat his wife to death with a stick after the doomed woman made the mistake of cooking him lentils for dinner instead of the hearty meal of goat meat that he craved, according to court papers. Noor Hussein, 75, was so outraged over the prospect of eating the vegetarian fare that he pummeled his wife, Nazar Hussein, 66, inside their Brooklyn apartment until she was a “bloody mess,” prosecutors said in opening statements of his murder trial Wednesday. “Defendant asked [his wife] to cook goat and [his wife] said she made something else,” court papers said.

As we at NewsBusters have documented, the liberal media have shown no lack of interest in the candidacy of American Idol runner-up turned Democratic politician Clay Aiken. So it should be interesting to see the coverage, or lack thereof, for Mr. Aiken having tweeted a while back, "Anyone else watching @piersmorgan want to punch Ann Coulter in the face?" What´s more, reports blogger Sooper Mexican, Aiken once all but urged fans to call Coulter a c**t. War on women, anyone?
