Thomas Piketty, Obama’s Fave Economist
Loves Socialism, Beating Women

FrontPage Magazine, by Daniel Greenfield

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 5/6/2014 8:46:58 PM

Thomas Piketty’s new book, “Capital in the 21st Century”, a shopworn screed about how capitalism just makes the rich, has a lot to say about income inequality. It has less to say about the disparity in muscle power between a 44 year old man and a younger woman. Especially when he’s beating her. Aurelie Filippetti, 40, France’s glamorous Culture and Media Minister, had a relationship with Mr Piketty, 42, which she alleges came to a violent end. A Socialist Party source, who was close to the couple when they shared a flat on Paris’s Left Bank, said: ‘Frankly, she views

Comments:
I doubt you will read this in the New York Times! That won´t matter to the sick leftists. Socialism will always come first. Judging by their acts and not their words, they really don´t care about women, that´s just a campaign slogan.

Dear Mr. Greenfield,

Please do not use the word socialism in the same sentence as "income inequality". People are not supposed to know they are connected. Instead, just say Dear Leader Barack Hussein "cares" about stuff like "fairness". If you expose the fact that Democrats are socialists, it blows their whole cover and that would be very mean. Also, never write about socialists who abuse women. Instead, pretend it could never happen because of their "good intentions", just like the Clintons.

There. We´ll be back with more things you must not ever write about again. Or else.

A US Marine held in a Mexican jail for over two months after mistakenly entering the country with guns has made an impassioned plea today for President Obama to secure his release. Sgt Andrew Tahmooressi said as the head of the military Mr Obama should get personally involved in his plight. ´Mr. President, you are my Commander in Chief. Please get me out of jail.´ Speaking exclusively to Mail Online from his Mexican prison, the 25-year-old said: ´I am still in the Marines and President Obama is my Commander in Chief. ´I want him to get involved.

The Biggest Crony: Cantor

On April 24, I reported that Ray Allen — Eric Cantor’s campaign chief and the founding partner of political direct-mail firm Creative Direct, LLC — had received $1.13 million in compensation from the Republican Party of Virginia (RPV) for the year 2013. The party had issued that amount to Creative Direct; the amount represented the single largest expenditure for the party that year. Allen’s company was given the contract to handle direct mailings for the party. At issue is the appearance of a “fixed” primary environment for Eric Cantor’s opponent, Dave Brat. Yet further examination of the RPV’s finances reveals that

That the feathers have melted off the formerly high-flying Obama administration is now beyond dispute. First time tragedy (Benghazi), second time tragic-comedy (Bergdahl). And now, with the leak of the famous Obama “workout” video, farce and ridicule. Ladies and gents, I give you the effective end of the Obama presidency. And off into the brave unknown we fly. Has there ever been a presidency like this one? Jimmy Carter, whose administration I’m old enough to remember vividly, began with a similar euphoria of “hope,” coming as he did in the wake of Nixon’s resignation and Ford’s pardon.

The administration for children and families, part of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), issued guidance in a memo on Wednesday regarding application of the federal government´s policy on same-sex spouses/marriages to all Head Start and Early Head Start programs. This guidance is intended to implement a post-Windsor policy of treating same-sex marriages on the same terms as opposite-sex marriages to the greatest extent reasonably possible. Accordingly, for purposes of determining eligibility to participate in Head Start and Early Head Start programs, the income of same-sex spouses shall be considered part of a family’s income and the same-sex spouse

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has a book coming out next week. Today, her publisher released images from the back cover of the book. The pictures mostly show Hillary meeting global leaders and attending important meetings. But one of the images is Clinton with President Barack Obama, standing in front of the Benghazi caskets at Andrews Air Force Base, dated September 14, 2012, just days after the September 11 attack. Here are the back cover images, as they were released on Twitter:

What if Obama disobeys the
law on another Gitmo release?
Washington Examiner, by Byron York    Original Article

We´ve all heard that the law requires the administration to give Congress 30 days notice before releasing prisoners from the U.S. terrorist detention facility in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba — a provision the White House willfully ignored in the recent release of five Taliban commandos in exchange for Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. But the law — specifically the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2014 — requires much more than that. Congress did not intend for the president to give lawmakers a simple heads-up. Instead, the House and Senate ordered that any such 30-day notification must include: 1) A detailed

On Thursday´s New Day on CNN, during a discussion of President Obama´s decision to release five high-risk Taliban prisoners from Guantanamo Bay in exchange for hostage Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl, without even notifying Congress first, liberal CNN commentator Paul Begala took a gratuitous swipe at Republicans as he cracked that, "if Barack Obama cured cancer, the Republicans would attack him for putting oncologists out of work." At about 8:30 a.m., after conservative commentator Cheri Jacobus gave her view of the Bergdahl prisoner trade, noting that Democrats have also been critical of the President, co-host Chris Cuomo turned to Begala and posed the

BILLINGS, Mont. - A Montana judge who said a 14-year-old rape victim appeared "older than her chronological age" will be publicly censured and given a 31-day suspension without pay for his misconduct in the case, the Montana Supreme Court said in a Wednesday order. Justices said Judge G. Todd Baugh of Billings eroded confidence in the court system with his actions in the case of convicted rapist and former teacher Stacey Dean Rambold. "There is no place in the Montana judiciary for perpetuating the stereotype that women and girls are responsible for sexual crimes committed against them," Chief Justice Mike McGrath wrote.

Fox News host Bret Baier appeared on C-SPAN’s June 1 Q&A with Brian Lamb to promote his new book Special Heart: A Journey of Faith, Hope, Courage, and Love. Among the many topics discussed during the interview was the nation´s political divide and Lamb wanted to know what Baier thought of the people who blamed the divide on Fox News. Baier noted that is very worthwhile to point out that D.C. is more divided now than it ever has been. But Lamb wanted to know why such a divide exists. Baier pointed out that there really is no way to pinpoint it to one issue. That's when the C-SPAN founder took the opportunity to bring up

Dartmouth Review: Joe Biden can win

Vice President Joe Biden is being encouraged to challenge former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton by the influential Dartmouth Review which declared on Thursday that “Biden can win the Democratic nomination in 2016.” “The chance lies before him, and seems closer than it has in the last 20 years,” said the Review. “To try and fail is forgivable, to not want the job is enviable, but the one thing that Biden cannot do is back down out of fear.” Biden is dozens of points behind Democratic frontrunner Clinton in every poll, and is even behind “undecided” in many. But that shouldn’t stop Biden

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has dropped plans to pursue criminal charges against a California tree trimmer who accidentally injured some baby birds — an incident that attracted the attention of the House’s chief investigator and charges of “bureaucratic bullying.” The tree trimmer, Ernesto Pulido, told the San Francisco Chronicle that he was recently told that the agency had decided to drop the case against him — an abrupt about-face just days after Rep. Darrell Issa, California Republican, called for a congressional inquiry. Mr. Issa fired off a letter to the agency saying the potential criminal charges against Mr. Pulido highlighted

Former Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell took time to answer questions about Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl while he was on Glenn Beck’s radio program. The lone survivor of Operation Redwing said that some of his friends weren’t happy that servicemen died trying to find the “joker” Bergdahl. “From what I understand from his teammates and everybody who was around him, he kind of just decided to walk off and go sightseeing in Afghanistan,” said Mr. Luttrell, glennbeck.com reported. “A couple of guys got killed actually trying to get that joker out of there, and [my friends were] not happy.

U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl at one point during his captivity converted to Islam, fraternized openly with his captors and declared himself a "mujahid," or warrior for Islam, according to secret documents prepared on the basis of a purported eyewitness account and obtained by Fox News. The reports indicate that Bergdahl´s relations with his Haqqani captors morphed over time, from periods of hostility, where he was treated very much like a hostage, to periods where, as one source told Fox News, "he became much more of an accepted fellow" than is popularly understood. He even reportedly was allowed to carry a

President Obama was caught on camera chewing gum during the D-Day ceremonies in France as Queen Elizabeth II was welcomed, and Twitter feeds worldwide exploded with criticism. “Obama and his chewing-gum. Classy” one French user tweeted sarcastically. “Not very elegant, the Obama attitude in the middle of the ceremony,” another user said, while yet another added, “Is there anyone who will ask Barack Obama to stop chewing on his gum like a cowboy?” The words “shameful” and “vulgar” were thrown around as social media networks lit up with outrage at Mr. Obama’s display. “Obama do you want a Coke too while chewing gum while

Obama administration officials told a gathering of all 100 U.S. Senators on Wednesday that they were kept in the dark about Saturday´s prisoner swap because the Taliban warned that they would kill Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl if any information about the plan leaked to the public. But Georgia Sen. Saxby Chambliss, the senior Republican member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, says he and California Sen. Dianne Feinstein, his Democratic counterpart on the committee, were told ´months and months´ in advance when the Obama administration was planning to kill Osama bin Laden. ´It was like they didn´t trust Dianne and me,´ Chambliss said

Late in the afternoon of Saturday, May 31, Barack Obama strode confidently to a lectern in the White House Rose Garden flanked by the parents of Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl, a soldier who had gone missing from his platoon in the mountains of Afghanistan in June 2009. “This morning I called Bob and Jani Bergdahl and told them that after nearly five years in captivity, their son, Bowe, is coming home,” Obama said. The president thanked service members who “recovered Sergeant Bergdahl and brought him safely out of harm’s way.” Obama also expressed gratitude to the diplomats who had handled the case,

The billionaire industrialist Koch brothers, known best for shepherding big money to conservative causes and candidates, have given a $25 million grant to the United Negro College Fund, the organization announced Friday. The money will come from Koch Industries Inc. and the Charles Koch Foundation, which are headed by the brothers. Most of the money ($18.5 million) will go toward a scholarship program. The other $6.5 million is provided for general support to historically black colleges and universities and the UNCF, with $4 million set aside for loan assistance.

Six of the men Bowe Bergdahl served with sat down with Megyn Kelly on Thursday, and Kelly asked them how they feel about the White House saying the attacks on Bergdahl are just “swift boating” and are motivated by partisanship. All six of them insisted their criticisms are not based in partisan politics, but in fact. All of them agreed that “the truth needs to come out, he’s not a hero,” and that it was “hard to watch” him get such a glowing welcoming in the Rose Garden, given they believe Bergdahl abandoned them to seek out the Taliban and

U.S. National Security Adviser Susan Rice passed up a golden opportunity on Friday to walk back her Sunday television praise for accused Army deserter Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl as an American who had ´served the United States with honor and distinction.´ Rice waded once again into controversy with comments on ABC´s Sunday morning news program ´This Week,´ setting off an immediate firestorm among Americans who had already learned that Bergdahl was no ordinary hostage overseas. Taliban forces in Afghanistan turned him over to U.S. Special Forces on Saturday after nearly five years of captivity following his voluntary walk-off from his base

The Obama White House genuinely believed the release of the American soldier who disappeared in 2009 in Afghanistan would provide a triumphant moment for the president and a moment for national unity. Otherwise, there would have been no Rose Garden celebration featuring the president and Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl’s parents. Some in the White House surely saw the Rose Garden bit as a chance to play rope-a-dope with their political adversaries after weeks of getting beaten up over the Veterans Administration scandal. They might have calculated that a knee-jerk Republican offensive against the deal — Bergdahl in trade for five

Yes, we’re talking H2O. “I am fascinated by the growing science behind the energy of consciousness and its effects on matter,” she wrote on her website GOOP. “I have long had Dr Emoto's coffee table book on how negativity changes the structure of water, how the molecules behave differently depending on the words or music being expressed around it.”

Hi, everybody. This is commencement season, a time for graduates and their families to celebrate one of the greatest achievements of a young person’s life. But for many graduates, it also means feeling trapped by a whole lot of student loan debt. And we’ve got to do more to lift that burden. See, in a 21st century economy, the surest pathway into the middle class is some form of higher education. The unemployment rate for workers with a bachelor’s degree is just 3.3 percent — about half what it is for high school graduates. The typical graduate of a four-year college earns $15,000 more per year than someone with just a high school degree.

One evening in March, during a visit to Italy, President Obama asked the U.S. ambassador to round up a bunch of—and I quote—“interesting Italians” for a dinner at the ambassadorial residence. The history of the property, the Villa Taverna, goes as far back as the tenth century. Its art collection includes Roman sarcophagi and centuries-old imperial busts. The menu that evening included a variety of pastas, and wines from Tuscany and the regions around Venice. Dinner lasted four hours. In this sumptuous and Baroque setting, amid these beautiful artifacts of long-gone civilizations, enjoying the finest foods and most delicate wines, President
