It’s Primary Season: Nebraska
and West Virginia Go to the Polls

ABC News, by Shushannah Walshe

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 5/13/2014 5:02:05 AM

Another Tuesday, another Primary Day as Nebraska and West Virginia voters go to the polls today. The key race today is the GOP Senate primary in Nebraska and it is the tea party’s best shot at victory, but it’s not exactly a clear tea party vs. establishment brawl as we saw last week in North Carolina. Of course, it is still a brawl, a three-way fight that has seen outside money pouring in and big name endorsements all around. There is also a gubernatorial race in that state that sees a re-match of sorts as well as a seven way

Keystone Pipeline Is D.C.’s Dumbest Debate
Daily Beast, by Claire Casey    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 5/13/2014 4:51:46 AM     Post Reply
The Keystone XL pipeline won’t have a significant impact on the climate or American energy independence. So why is Washington still freaking out over it? No issue better captures the dysfunction of Washington than the trumped up debate over the Keystone XL pipeline. Tuesday, the Obama administration released its 3rd National Climate Assessment, with one key message: Climate change is real, here, and only set to intensify. There are many important decisions to be made to tackle this critical challenge, but Keystone XL isn’t one of them. Building the pipeline won’t have a discernable impact on the climate; scrapping Keystone won’t

Arresting Lois Lerner

Use it or lose it. That’s the message for House Speaker John Boehner. If he thinks Congress has the power to arrest Lois Lerner for contempt, now is the time. If he shrinks from sending the sergeant at arms to bring Lerner to the Capitol jail after the full House held her in contempt, he’s weakening his own institution. And if this case is not worth a fight, what is? The ex-official of the Internal Revenue Service has been ordered to continue testifying in the House’s investigation into whether President Obama’s tax collectors tried to throw the 2012 election by targeting

This is the end My only friend, the end Of our elaborate plans, the end Of everything that stands, the end No safety or surprise, the end —The Doors You know it’s bad when I begin by quoting The Doors, but “The End” has been stuck in my head since I started collecting stories for this week’s column. The first was Erik Sherman’s Inc. writeup of a recent Brookings Institution report on the decline of American entrepreneurship. According to Brookings, “entrepreneurship has reached at least a three-decade low across virtually all of the country.” Three decades also happens to be as long as Brookings has been tracking

For decades, Ronald Reagan’s Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI)—an ambitious ground- and space-based “shield” to protect the United States from nuclear ballistic missiles—has been mocked and criticized. First proposed by the president in 1983, it was immediately dubbed “Star Wars” by the mainstream media and dismissed as unscientific, infeasible and even counter-productive. The Union of Concerned Scientists, 100,000 members strong, was fierce in its opposition. The Arms Control Association declared that SDI would end arms control, while some Soviets felt SDI would end the world. Domestic critics became furious, and the Kremlin went ballistic

Russian influence operations in Washington, D.C. have not been affected by the weak sanctions imposed on some members of Vladimir Putin’s inner circle (but not Putin himself) in Moscow. The “World Russia Forum” will be held June 16th and 17th in the Hart Senate Office Building and features Sergei Kislyak, the Russian Ambassador to Washington; James Carden, Contributing Editor of Pat Buchanan’s The American Conservative magazine; and Mark Ritchie, the Secretary of State of Minnesota. Analyst Trevor Loudon has described Ritchie as “the Secret ‘Communist Party Friend’ Who Gave Al Franken His Senate Seat.” He notes, “One of the Senate’s most

   

 

  


 
ICE data: 36,000 illegals with criminal

A preemptive strike on DHS from the Center for Immigration Studies, designed to make Obama’s upcoming “relaxation” of U.S. deportation procedures as politically painful as possible. He’s desperate to pander to his base, which is impatient after waiting more than five years for amnesty and has now convinced itself based on cooked numbers that he’s some sort of crazed border hawk. That’s where the “relaxation” comes in — and that’s the beauty of CIS’s otherwise grim data, which shows just how relaxed the system already is. Maybe O will consider it a blessing in disguise, though. What true amnesty fan

Going down in flames: Shane Osborn

I was almost starting to feel sorry for Shane Osborn. After all, he had been spurned by the conservative movement in favor of a fresher face named Ben Sasse, had been unceremoniously un-endorsed (for really no good reason) by FreedomWorks, had his military service questioned, and was effectively “swift-boated” in an ad paid for by an outside group. But, having been outmaneuvered by Sasse, instead of going out with his head held high, a desperate Osborn now appears to be grasping at straws. As TheDC’s Neil Munro reports, A new campaign-trail pledge to vote against any immigration increases took center stage in the Nebraska

Happy Birthday, Mary Kay Ash

Before Sephora and Birchbox, there was Mary Kay. In 1963, Mary Kay Ash founded her cosmetics company in a 500-square-foot Dallas storefront. Today the Addison-based eyeshadow and blush empire now extends to 35 countries and boasts $3 billion in wholesale revenue each year. The iconic pink Cadillac, gifted to top sellers since 1969, even has its own anthropomorphized Twitter account these days. (And this year the company added a more understated black BMW to its fleet of reward vehicles.) Mark Kay would have turned 96 today, and to remember one of Texas´s most powerful and influential women, we take a

Neill Blomkamp’s 2013 science-fiction film Elysium, starring Matt Damon and Jodie Foster, takes place in Los Angeles, circa 2154. The wealthy have moved into an orbiting luxury satellite—the Elysium of the title—while the wretched majority of humans remain in squalor on Earth. The film works passably as an allegory for its director’s native South Africa, where racial apartheid was enforced for nearly 50 years, but it’s a rather cartoonish vision of the American future. (Snip)I’ve always wanted to visit Cuba—not because I’m nostalgic for a botched utopian fantasy but because I wanted to experience Communism firsthand. When I finally got

We easily forget how fascism works: as a bright and shining alternative to the mundane duties of everyday life, as a celebration of the obviously and totally irrational against good sense and experience. Fascism features armed forces that do not look like armed forces, indifference to the laws of war in theirapplication to people deemed inferior, the celebration of “empire” after counterproductive land grabs. Fascism means the celebration of the nude male form, the obsession with homosexuality, simultaneously criminalized and imitated. Fascism rejects liberalism and democracy as sham forms of individualism, insists on the collective will over the individual choice,

Obama’s War on Louisiana
National Review Online, by Quin Hillyer    Original Article

If all who love liberty are rightly upset by an administration’s harassment of conservative groups for political ends, we should be even more outraged when the administration, while playing political hardball, mistreats an entire state’s ordinary, apolitical citizens. From the earliest days of his presidency, Barack Obama has shown a particular animus against Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal, and has repeatedly held Louisiana citizens hostage to that animus. The latest outrage came via a May 2 letter from the national Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) disapproving Jindal’s brilliant semi-privatization of state hospitals that, in less than a year, already has

Almost nobody in Japan heard about the Battle of Midway until after the war. (Snip) Suppose Benghazi was the night when the administration’s secret policy fell apart. In one devastating attack Obama — and Hillary — realized they had been double crossed and their whole theory had been a dream. In an instant it was plain they could not control the jihad from the inside. That setback, by itself, was not necessarily a bad thing. Commanders in Chief can make mistakes so why couldn’t Hillary and Obama just admit they had this theory but it didn’t work in practice and

Daily Beast columnist Eleanor Clift said on Sunday’s The McLaughlin Group that late U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens, who was killed the night of the Benghazi attacks, had not been murdered but had died from “smoke inhalation.” “I’d like to point out that Ambassador Stevens was not ‘murdered,’” Clift said, using air quotes, “but died of smoke inhalation in a CIA safe room.” This did not land well. “It was a terrorist attack, Eleanor,” panelist-for-life Pat Buchanan said. “He was murdered in a terrorist attack.” Clift responded that it was an opportunistic terrorist attack inflamed by the anti-Muslim video, the blaming of which has

AFTER several years of work by hundreds of scientists with the Global Change Research Program, a report on the state of our climate was released last week. The conclusions are bleak. While the basic science of climate change has been known for a while, this report, the U.S. National Climate Assessment, details how the impacts of global warming are already evident around the United States.

WASHINGTON — Former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton are in Oxford, England, this weekend to attend the graduation ceremonies of their daughter, Chelsea. Chelsea Clinton will receive her doctorate degree in international relations on Saturday from the prestigious British university. Her father was a Rhodes scholar at Oxford from 1968 to 1970. The graduation ceremony comes as her mother is considering a potential 2016 presidential campaign. The 34-year-old Clinton is reaching a number of milestones this year. In addition to her doctorate, Clinton and her husband, Marc Mezvinsky,

Marco Rubio says he is ready to become the President of the United States. “I think that’s true for multiple other people that would want to run,” Florida’s junior senator told ABC’s Jonathan Karl on The Week Sunday. “I mean, I’ll be 43 this month, but the other thing that perhaps people don’t realize, I’ve served now in public office for the better part of 14 years. Most importantly, I think a president has to have a clear vision of where the country needs to go and clear ideas about how to get it there, and I think we’re very blessed in our party to have a number of people that fit that criteria.” Rubio was once considered to be a frontrunner

Shortly after the St. Louis Rams selected Sam in the seventh round Saturday, Jones tweeted, ´´Horrible.´´ The tweet was taken down a short time later. Sam is the first openly gay player to be selected in the NFL Draft.Sam´s selection at No. 249 and the nationally televised kiss he shared with his boyfriend set off a wave of reaction on Twitter.

As Barack Obama enters the twilight of his tenure, the debate over his legacy is ­beginning, but one conclusion already seems certain. It can best be described as “Honey, I shrunk the presidency.” Not since Jimmy Carter was held hostage by Iran has the Oval Office seemed so inconsequential against the forces of international darkness. The mismatch is particularly striking because smallness has been Obama’s choice. Although he is guilty of executive overreach at home, that bully behavior only sharpens the contrast with a foreign policy that is feeble when it is not comatose. The president’s estrangement from the demands

Michael Mann is one of the most partisan advocates for the catastrophic anthropogenic global warming theory. He is controversial for several reasons: he invented the “hockey stick” graph, which was intended to show that recent warming trends were unprecedented, and has since been exposed as a hoax that misrepresents historic temperatures. He has fought bitterly to prevent his own emails from being discovered in litigation, even though he is a public employee whose research is lavishly funded by taxpayers. He has participated in some of the dishonest “tricks”–their word–by which climate alarmists have kept billions of dollars in

A sure-fire draft pick turned into a 50-50 chance, and then a suspenseful wait through the final rounds of the NFL draft. But then it happened. At the very end of the seventh and final round of the 2014 NFL draft, after 248 other collegians had found a professional home, the St. Louis Rams selected Michael Sam, a 6-2 261 pound defensive end from the University of Missouri. Yeah. That’s a pretty big deal. With the pick, Michael Sam became the first openly gay athlete to be picked and, should he survive this summer’s training camp, will make history as the

Food Network star Sandra Lee has been allegedly upgrading her Westchester County home that she shares with Gov. Cuomo while blowing off the building-permit process, crucial to determining property value. Lee got a relative steal, scooping up the six-bedroom New Castle home at 4 Bittersweet Lane, for $1.2 million at as home values crashed in 2008. And ever since, she’s been fixing up the the property, known as Lily Pond, with virtually no consultation with town Building Inspector Bill Maskiell, according to The Journal News. Maskiell said he had to hassle Lee for six months in 2012 for her to get a building permit for a gazebo and shed
