The American Left is
Positively Putinesque

American Thinker, by Jay Haug

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 4/14/2014 9:51:39 AM

Vladimir Putin’s tactics in both Crimea and now Eastern Ukraine seem transparent to the western media. Using tactics designed to “protect” its citizens, Russia annexed Crimea. Georgia fell to a similar fate when George Bush was president. Now “protests” are being fomented in eastern Ukraine while troops mass at the border. The Russians advertise this as “defensive measures.” Hitler used similar tactics when he invaded the ethnically German Sudetenland in the lead-up to World War II. In Putin’s case, the tactics involve trumped up protests by Russian loyalists apparently shipped in to protest for this very purpose, troops massed at the

Tom Steyer´s Glass House
Wall Street Journal, by Kimberley A. Strassel    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 4/24/2014 8:47:43 PM     Post Reply
The psychiatric world defines "projection" as the act of denying unpleasant qualities in yourself, while attributing them to others. Consider liberal billionaire Tom Steyer´s riff this week about the libertarian billionaire Koch brothers. Mr. Steyer took exception in a C-SPAN interview to comparisons between his big-dollar funding of Democrats with the Koch brothers´ big-dollar funding of Republicans. The Kochs´ priorities "line up perfectly with their pocketbooks—and that´s not true for us," said Mr. Steyer, who is fighting against the Keystone XL pipeline. Moreover, he insisted, his politicking is "completely open," whereas the Kochs have "not been huge embracers of transparency." Why is

The Decline of Tornado Devastation
Wall Street Journal, by Roger Pielke    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 4/24/2014 8:44:15 PM     Post Reply
So far in 2014, the United States has experienced fewer tornadoes than in any year since record-keeping began in 1953, or even before. Greg Carbin, a meteorologist with the Storm Prediction Center of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, has called this "likely the slowest start to tornado activity in any year in modern record, and possibly nearly a century." But just because tornado activity has declined doesn´t mean that we can let down our guard, as potentially large impacts are always a threat. Overall, however, the good news for residents of the Midwest´s "Tornado Alley" and elsewhere is that

Senators Denounce Obama for

On Thursday, 22 Republican senators, including even Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), denounced President Barack Obama in a scathing letter for threatening America´s "entire constitutional system" with his immigration "enforcement review" that threatens to "nullify" the nation´s immigration laws. "Your actions demonstrate an astonishing disregard for the Constitution, the rule of law, and the rights of American citizens and legal residents," the senators wrote in a letter to Obama. "Our entire constitutional system is threatened when the Executive Branch suspends the law at its whim and our nation’s

Obama administration may unveil
new deportation policy in two stages

The White House is considering small steps in the near term to ease the threat of deportation for some undocumented immigrants, but advocates in communication with the administration expect President Barack Obama to make bigger changes later in the year. With legislation to reform U.S. immigration policy stalled in Congress, Obama has come under increasing pressure from the immigrant community to take executive action to curb the rate of deportation that has reached a record level under his presidency. In the coming weeks, an Obama-ordered review of deportation enforcement at the Department of Homeland Security is expected to conclude that certain steps

MADISON TOWNSHIP House Speaker John Boehner theatrically mocked his fellow Republican Congressmen for being afraid to reform immigration policy when he spoke Thursday before the Middletown Rotary Club in his home district. "Here´s the attitude. Ohhhh. Don´t make me do this. Ohhhh. This is too hard," Boehner whined before a luncheon crowd at Brown´s Run County Club in Madison Township. "We get elected to make choices. We get elected to solve problems and it´s remarkable to me how many of my colleagues just don´t want to ... They´ll take the path of least resistance." Boehner said he´s been working for 16 or 17

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) believes if the midterms elections were held today, Republicans would win control of the Senate. “I believe right now that we are on a path to do that, I think we’re going to win control of the Senate and we’re going to retire Harry Reid as Majority Leader,” Cruz said during an interview with Oklahoma radio host Pat Campbell, ahead of a planned rally in support of Republican Senate Candidate T.W. Shannon. Cruz reminded conservatives that they should be focused on winning control of the Senate. “I think if the election happens right now we would take control of

Blue states try
raiding Electoral College
Washington Times, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 4/24/2014 6:40:43 PM     Post Reply
The fondest dream of the modern Democrat is to neutralize the votes of the yokels in Peoria and put important decisions in the hands of sophisticates in places like San Francisco and Manhattan. The modern Democrats took a step closer to realizing their ambition last week when New York joined nine other liberal states with laws to undermine the Electoral College. Blue states have been rushing to sign up for the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact. So far, the list includes — in addition to New York — California, Hawaii, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Rhode Island, Vermont, Washington and

Caroline Kennedy has said that she will ´absolutely´ endorse Hillary Clinton ´if she runs´ for president in 2016. The two women from similarly powerful Democratic clans have had a turbulent history in the past, but in a new interview, the American Ambassador to Japan gave a measured hint of an endorsement. ´I know it sounds like a cliché, but two years is a really long time in politics. I’m sure she’s looking forward to being a grandmother, I know she’s got to decide soon. So, so you know I hope so,´ Kennedy said in an interview with ABC. Kennedy´s endorsement can be a

Malaysia´s preliminary report into the disappearance of flight MH370 will be released next week, the country´s Prime Minister has said. Najib Razak made the surprise announcement as his government continued to be beseiged by angry families, some of whom refuse to accept the plane was destroyed unless they have hard evidence. The report has already been sent to the United Nations´ International Civil Aviation Organization but not made public. Mr Razak told CNN: ´I have directed an internal investigation team of experts to look at the report, and there is a likelihood that next week we could release the report.´ He later confirmed it

This is the moment an RAF Typhoon closes in on a Russian surveillance plane after it flew close to UK airspace, before making it turn back. The photograph of the Russian Tu-95 ´Bear H´ was taken from one of the RAF´s Quick Reaction Aircraft after two Russian planes were spotted off the coast of north-east Scotland. However, the aircraft turned away after the British jet fighters, one which can be seen approaching the Russian plane from above, took off from Leuchars airbase, near St Andrews in Fife yesterday. Planes were launched by the RAF to determine the identity of two unknown aircraft seen

The former Ku Klux Klan leader who is charged with killing three people at Jewish community sites in Kansas City has previously been arrested for soliciting a male prostitute who was black. The new revelation about Frazier Glenn Cross´ past shows how the anti-Semitic gunman had a criminal history that runs against the hate-filled speech that he has spewed for decades. ABC reports that Frazier Glenn Cross was originally named Frazier Glenn Miller, rising through the ranks of the anti-Semitic and racist groups, founding the Carolina Knights of the KKK and the paramilitary White Patriot Party. His name changed after he struck a

First lady Michelle Obama took her campaign to help veterans find jobs to Fort Campbell, Ky.., Wednesday where she said that most Americans don´t know much about the military. Following comments from Jill Biden, the vice president´s wife and Obama´s teammate in helping veterans, she noted that unlike Biden, she had little familiarity with the military prior to campaigning for the White House in 2008. “Unlike Jill, I wasn´t a military mom. I wasn´t a Blue Star family member. I didn´t know much about the military, and I was probably more like the average American,” said Obama.

A prominent Japanese politician has raised hackles as Barack Obama visits Tokyo by claiming it´s an ´open secret´ that he and the first lady are headed for divorce, and that the president has been using Secret Service agents to cover for him as he pursues extramarital affairs. Kazuyuki Hamada, who sits in the upper house of Japan´s parliament, earned his PhD a half-mile from the White House at George Washington University, and emerged as a shrill commentator on America´s economy and foreign policy. In 2009 he also joined the ranks of the so-called ´birthers,´ arguing in a book titled ´Who is Obama?´

Jeb Bush said Wednesday he´s "thinking about running for president," in his most direct statement yet about a possible 2016 run. The former Florida governor spoke at a Catholic school benefit in New York Wednesday morning. He previously has said he´ll make a decision on whether to run for president before the end of this year, making clear that he was considering the possibility. But his comments on Wednesday appeared to be more direct. Asked what his "immediate plans" were, he said, according to an attendee: "I´m thinking about running for president." The answer was met with applause and a standing ovation, after

WASHINGTON -- In a dissent to Tuesday’s Supreme Court ruling upholding Michigan’s voter-approved ban on affirmative action programs in its public colleges, Justice Sonia Sotomayor speaks from experience about the complex impact of such programs on her own life. Sotomayor’s 58-page dissent, joined by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, has one theme: Race matters. (Snip) She takes a dig at Chief Justice John Roberts who wrote once, “The way to stop discrimination on the basis of race is to stop discrimination on the basis of race.” Sotomayor says: “It is a sentiment out of touch with reality.” Sotomayor says, “Race matters.

Today is Earth Day. Fox News’ The Five opened its show with a nearly 15 minute segment titled “Earth Day Hysteria.” The goal appeared to be to prove that scientists’ warnings about climate change are overblown and should be ignored if not outright mocked and co-host Eric Bolling was the ringleader of the effort. But he found an adversary in Bob Beckel, who challenged the status quo by presenting actual data on the rise of CO2 levels from NASA, of all places. But before Beckel got to his chart, Bolling took some time to “praise” President Barack Obama for what

At least 40 U.S. veterans died waiting for appointments at the Phoenix Veterans Affairs Health Care system, many of whom were placed on a secret waiting list. The secret list was part of an elaborate scheme designed by Veterans Affairs managers in Phoenix who were trying to hide that 1,400 to 1,600 sick veterans were forced to wait months to see a doctor, according to a recently retired top VA doctor and several high-level sources. For six months, CNN has been reporting on extended delays in health care appointments suffered by veterans across the country and who died while waiting for appointments and care.

More than 1,750 people had signed a petition protesting the first lady´s appearance at the graduation ceremony, angered that security concerns would limit the number of friends and family who could attend.

Just three months after Rep. Trey Radel resigned his safe Republican seat in southwest Florida, Republican voters have chosen his likely successor: Curt Clawson. He won the election the old-fashioned way, by making a ton of money in the private sector and then splattering the airwaves with TV ads. In the process, Clawson rolled up endorsements from local Tea Party leaders and from the Tea Party Express. It wasn´t that he was particularly conservative -- he had no prior political record, and had even donated to Democratic Sen. Debbie Stabenow. It was enough, according to the Tea Party Express, that he

George Clooney has confessed to calling Las Vegas gambling mogul Steve Wynn an ´a**hole´ and storming off at a recent dinner because the casino-owner insulted President Barack Obama. The verbal assault occurred two weeks ago when the two-time Oscar winner was in Vegas promoting his Casamigos tequila, and was invited to dine with Wynn and his wife, Andrea Hissom, at the fancy Botero restaurant inside the 72-year-old´s Encore hotel. But when dinner was finished, the conversation turned to Obama´s Affordable Care Act, of which Wynn is a vocal opponent. That´s when sparks began to fly. Clooney immediately took exception to how the billionaire
