Steve Wynn: "Mollycoddled" Actors
Don´t Understand The Real World

Real Clear Politics, by Staff

STEVE WYNN: Artists, actors, people like that, they live in a very strange bubble of their own. They´re mollycoddled, they´re highly privileged. We are talking about successful artists like George [Clooney] or Barbra Streisand or any other really successful performing artist. They live in a relatively small world. The people around them are very solicitous and caring for them. They have a worldview that is, therefore, everything should be given to everybody because everything has been given to them. If you run a business, if you are responsible for a lot of people, you come to grips

I personally think it´s more than actors living in a bubble. Look at Abraham Lincoln...he cared about people and this nation even when he was supposedly pampered as President....I think it´s what´s in the heart originally that makes a person choose their stand on things. In other words, living in a bubble didn´t change King David´s overall love for God...he did give in to temptation but he repented of it also. Again, Bottom line is it´s all about what´s in the heart of each individual. That´s why God takes out the books (Rev. 20)of our hearts intentions in the last day Judgment of EACH INDIVIDUAL.

Steve Winn makes some really good points here, but he has a lot of nerve talking about compassion and unsustainable debt. The man owns most of the casinos in Vegas. Those places don´t run on compassion or helping people make good financial decisions.

Rangel claims victory over
Espaillat in Democratic primary
New York Post, by Erin Calabrese, Lorena Mongelli*    Original Article
Posted By: PChristopher- 6/25/2014 5:35:57 AM     Post Reply
Rep. Charles Rangel declared victory Tuesday night in his quest for a 23rd term, after outpolling persistent rival Adriano Espaillat in the bitter Harlem Democratic primary. “This is your victory, this is your congressman! Thank you so very much,” Rangel said to raucous supporters at the Taino Towers gymnasium in East Harlem. (Snip) And woe to those who had ditched Charlie. Earlier Tuesday, a confident Rangel said that the political and labor leaders who abandoned him during the race “made one hell of a mistake” — ¬implying that he might not be willing to forgive and forget.

Anger explodes over treatment of Bergdahl’s
release as veterans, troops call him a deserter

For all the yellow ribbons strewn across his hometown in Idaho and the gratitude expressed by his parents in an emotional visit to the White House on Saturday, it’s looking increasingly unlikely that Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl will receive a hero’s welcome when he returns to the United States after nearly five years in Taliban captivity. From military forums across the country, a groundswell of anger is rising over the Obama administration’s silence on perhaps the most controversial question surrounding the deal that freed Bergdahl in exchange for five senior Taliban members: Was he a deserter?

The 6 Lamest Excuses For Failure

"I will gladly pay you Tuesday for a hamburger today." -- Wimpy from Popeye "I won´t pull the football away this time, Charlie Brown!" -- Lucy, Charlie Brown Those are long running laugh lines in the comics and readers are supposed to roll their eyes as they hear those words. Maybe Americans just aren´t as smart as they used to be because the Obama Administration continually offers up excuses that are just as lame while even professional journalists take it seriously. Granted, politicians lying and making excuses is as old as mankind, but Obama´s every bit as artless

Is TV Getting More Conservative?

Over at the Free Beacon, Sonny Bunch has a nifty little piece arguing that FX’s little watched yet highly praised “The Americans” is the most reactionary show on television. And while he makes a good case, I’d contend there’s an odd, unnoticed glut of conservative-friendly TV these days, particularly on premium cable. First, let’s take “The Americans,” an excellent show about Soviet spies raising a family in the Virginia suburbs during the Reagan era. “Phillip” and “Elizabeth” are both Russian-born deep-cover KGB saboteurs who have been trained to speak and act like everyday Americans. Together they run a travel agency

House Budget Committee to
Hold Hearing on Poverty

Is the federal government responsible for lifting millions of Americans out of poverty or trapping them in it? That question has become a political Rorschach test this year, the 50th anniversary of President Lyndon B. Johnson’s war on poverty. On Wednesday, Representative Paul D. Ryan, chairman of the House Budget Committee, is holding a third hearing on the government and the poor, featuring testimony from the “front lines.” In recent months, Mr. Ryan, a Wisconsin Republican, has loudly argued that the government has failed in its effort to end deprivation and ensure mobility.

A Rains County, TX sheriff´s deputy accused of shooting and killing a farmer´s dog for no reason has been fired, officials with the county sheriff´s office confirmed Thursday. The deputy argued that the dog, Candy, threatened his safety. Candy’s owner, Cole Middleton, is a third generation dairy farmer. After Candy died, Middleton began a campaign on Facebook that is getting national attention and said she was killed for no good reason. Last week, someone broke into Middleton’s house. He was on his tractor when the deputy arrived to investigate. Middleton could see Candy

Smith College Students Continue Fight Over
“Discriminatory” Policy On Transgender Applicants
Buzzfeed, by Tony Merevick*    Original Article
Posted By: PChristopher- 4/22/2014 2:26:47 AM     Post Reply
Dozens of students plan to protest at Smith College on Thursday due to what they say is the women’s school’s refusal to make its admissions process more inclusive for transgender women after students’ negotiations with administrators failed. The Northampton, Mass., school came under fire last spring for its admissions policy after Calliope Wong, a transgender woman, was rejected because a federal student aid form identified her as male, even though she identifies as female. Since then, activists from the Smith Q&A student organization have pressed administrators to make a key change to the policy

The names of the six-member jury panel that acquitted George Zimmerman in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin have been made public for the first time, after a new court order, records show. Circuit Judge Debra Nelson, who had previously ordered the jurors´ identifying information be kept confidential, granted access to the names in a ruling March 21. Zimmerman´s defense asked the judge in June to keep the names secret until six months after the verdict. (Snip) Attempts to reach the jurors by phone and in-person Thursday were unsuccessful.

“We don’t care about money here.” “Well, that’s because you have it.” “Would you repeat that?” “You don’t care about money because you’ve always had it.” —“The Aviator,” 2004 This Telegraph interview with Chelsea Clinton reveals a number of facets of the once and future first daughter which make her the perfect representative of her Millennial generation.

Republicans dropped a hammer on IRS Commissioner John Koskinen during a testy hearing covering the disappearance of emails tied to the agency´s tea party targeting scandal. The emails, covering the period January 2009 to April 2011, belonged to embattled former official Lois Lerner and could shed light on whether an expansive scheme to single out conservative groups for special scrutiny was guided by members of Congress or administration officials outside the IRS. ´The committee requested all of Lois Lerner’s emails over a year ago,´ said House Oversight Committee Chairman Rep. Darrell Issa. ´And we subpoenaed the emails in August 2013 and

Noted management expert and Internal Revenue Service Commissioner John Koskinen was apparently called out of retirement — like the Ted Williams of evasive, unapologetic bureaucrats — to destroy what is left of his agency’s credibility. At immediate issue is two years of subpoenaed e-mails from former IRS official Lois Lerner to outside agencies, lost in a convenient computer crash. The possible involvement of other agencies is one focus of a congressional investigation into the heightened IRS scrutiny of conservative nonprofit groups before the 2012 election. In recent congressional testimony, Koskinen admitted that the e-mails

‘R-E-S-P-E-C-T,” the song goes. It is easy enough to spell, but for some vocal critics of President Barack Obama, it seems exceedingly hard to do. As the president moves toward the land of the lame ducks, his political enemies are calling for blood. That’s no shocker at this stage of a presidency. In this case, the cuts go deeper. For some, it is not enough to disagree. Some high-status public figures seem determined to demean, denigrate and ridicule the president of the United States. On June 12 the Speaker of the U.S. House stepped to a podium and insulted Obama for his handling of

Monday night at a evening congressional hearing on the Internal Revenue Service claims that Lois Lerner´s email´s were lost due to a computer crash, Rep. Mike Turner (R-OH) confronted agency commissioner John Koskinen over whether he had contacted the FBI since he claimed he "can not say no crime was committed," and that Lerner had pleaded the Fifth Amendment "to avoid criminal prosecution." Turner grilled Koskinen demanding to know why the FBI has not be contacted asking, "Will you call the FBI, integrity of your agency is absolutely at stake?"

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

After discussing the various issues facing working mothers today, Roberts asked the first lady when she thinks it will be time for the United States to elect its first female president. “That should happen as soon as possible,” Obama said, to cheers from the audience. “I think this country is ready. This country is ready for anyone who can do the job,” she said, adding that the election of her husband proved that you don’t need a “particular

Bill O’Reilly asked Charles Krauthammer: How bad are things in America? 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
