No Statute of Limitations
on Bush Bashing

PJ Media, by Jean Kaufman

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 5/16/2014 5:02:18 PM

Now that Obama has been president for over five years, has the statute of limitations on Bush-bashing finally run out? It’s true that Bush is no longer the intense and primary focus of the left in the way he was when he was president, or during the first couple of years of the Obama administration, when every problem in America was ascribed to his evil or to his stupidity. It’s also the case that the left goes from one useful strawman/demon to another, and instead of Bush we now hear about the all-powerful climate-destroying Koch brothers, the horror of Christie’s

NY Dem Invested in Iran’s
Biggest Oil Customer
Washington Free Beacon [DC], by Lachlan Markay    Original Article

A Democratic House candidate is under fire for his husband’s sizable investment in a Chinese oil company that does extensive business in the Iranian oil sector. Facebook cofounder and poke button pioneer Chris Hughes, the husband of New York Democrat Sean Eldridge, owns between $100,000 and $250,000 of stock in China Petroleum and Chemical Corp., according to disclosure forms released last week. That company’s activity in Iran spurred Rep. Chris Gibson (R., N.Y.), Eldridge’s opponent, to call on him to divest from those holdings. Hughes’ stake in the company “impacts our country’s national security,” Gibson said in a news release on

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid will have an easier time running for reelection in 2016 when he and his wife move out of their longtime home in Searchlight, Nev., the Democratic leader said Monday. "I´ve got a reelection coming up, and I´ve been through a few elections commuting from Searchlight, and it´s hard," Reid said in a video posted to his Senate website Monday. Reid announced the sale of land, including his home, to the Nevada Milling and Mining Co. on Monday. The Associated Press reported that the company bought the house for $1.7 million.

Last week, photos surfaced from Texas and Arizona showing Border Patrol processing centers overwhelmed as thousands of unaccompanied children from Central America continue to need shelter and resources. The photos show hundreds of children sleeping in crowded, chain linked cages. Agents have described the situation as a humanitarian crisis.

WASHINGTON- The unemployment rate has been on a slow downward trajectory since the recession ended nearly five years ago. While the overall jobless level has dropped to non-recession levels, the number of the working-age people with jobs is barely over 6 in 10, hovering at a level reminiscent of the late 1970s. In May, the U.S. workforce-participation rate - the combination of those with jobs and unemployed workers actively seeking them - was just 62.8 percent, the same as the month before. Job markets have been essentially flat since October. Where have all the missing workers gone? A key factor,




President Barack Obama’s Starbucks
run: ‘The bear is loose’ — again

President Barack Obama ducked out of the White House Monday afternoon for a walk to a Starbucks that seemed so unplanned even White House press aides were caught by surprise. With chief of staff Denis McDonough, Obama walked just down Pennsylvania Avenue for drinks — notably hot, given Washington weather that’s humid and in the 80s — greeting the crowd as he went, waving, shaking hands, even blowing kisses. Monday’s short trip is the second time of late he’s taken an unscheduled walk out of the White House in the middle of the day. The last time, forgoing the motorcade

CNN’s Chris Cuomo opened up a can of worms on Monday. Via the Washington Free Beacon, Cuomo half-jokingly observed that the press has been giving Hillary Clinton a “free ride.” (Video) “We couldn’t help her any more than we have,” Cuomo remarked. “We’re the biggest ones promoting her campaign.” The CNN host was kidding, but the key ingredient in any strong joke is an element of truth. We are fortunate to have one recent example of that truth. On Monday, in an interview with ABC’s Diane Sawyer, Clinton stipulated that her husband’s post-impeachment legal debts and her quest to purchase property

(Video) Monday during President Barack Obama´s announcement of his executive memorandum that will allow approximately 5 million people to cap their student loan payments at 10 percent of their income, he took "a pause off his prepared remarks" to rail against Republicans giving tax breaks to millionaires and oil companies while fighting student loan reform. "I don´t know why folks aren´t more outraged by this," he said. "If your a big oil company they will go to bat for you, if your a student good luck."

Numerous Americans nowadays are accused of being “anti-science.” Yet making decisions and forming opinions without respect to all the facts is not a partisan problem. It’s an information problem. Take a look at this chart made by Oxford PhD. student Avi Roy. (Snip) What you’ll see is that America has been whipping infectious diseases for over a century, (Snip) But it’s what you don’t see on this chart that is really the story. Natural disaster and extreme weather-related deaths don’t even make the chart.

At the base of the mountain, Tom Steyer was a billionaire hedge-fund manager with oil and gas investments and a seemingly conflicted conscience. But by the time he and environmentalist Bill McKibben finished a hike up two tall Adirondacks peaks on that summer day in 2012, Steyer had revealed that he was ready to change his life — he would unload his investments in fossil fuels and become an activist in the fight against global warming. Just two years later, Steyer, 56, has become the environmental hero he set out to be, giving the left its own billionaire donor to

Hillary Clinton, who recently raked in $5 million dollars in speaking fees in 15 months, recounted to Diane Sawyer the sad tale of her former destitution, telling her, “We came out of the White House not only dead broke but in debt.” According to Clinton, she and her husband, who has made over $100 million since leaving the White House, “struggled to, you know, piece together the resources for mortgages for houses, for Chelsea’s education, you know, it was not easy.” But, as Clinton’s story goes, the two hard-working, middle-class millionaires somehow managed to put food on the table in

The platoon was, an American military official would assert years later, “raggedy.”On their tiny, remote base, in a restive sector of eastern Afghanistan at an increasingly violent time of the war, they were known to wear bandannas and cutoff T-shirts. Their crude observation post was inadequately secured, a military review later found. Their first platoon leader, and then their first platoon sergeant, were replaced relatively early in the deployment because of problems. But the unit — Second Platoon, Blackfoot Company in the First Battalion, 501st Regiment — might well have remained indistinguishable from scores of other Army platoons

A new study that tested the willingness of drivers to stop for people depending on their race has shown up some disconcerting conclusions. Portland State University-based Oregon Transportation Research and Education Consortium (OTREC) had six men - three black and three white - of similar age and build and dressed in identical ´neutral´ outfits cross the same street in Portland at separate intervals. The street had a crosswalk that was not governed by traffic lights, leaving the onus to stop with the driver, according to The Huffington Post. Trained observers watched the study out of sight from the traffic and

California Chrome flamed out in his bid for Triple Crown glory Saturday — and then his irate co-owner launched verbal bombs at the competition. The high drama at the 146th Belmont Stakes began with California Chrome finishing in a dead heat for fourth and ended with a shocking rant by outspoken co-owner Steve Coburn. The cowboy hat-wearing Coburn took aim at the winner Tonalist for cherry-picking races — sitting out the first two legs of the Triple Crown before competing at the Belmont. “That’s the coward’s way out,” he fumed. “It’s not fair to these horses that have been in the game since

Democratic strategist and former Clinton-campaign manager Donna Brazile said this morning that veterans accusing recently returned Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl of desertion are part of a “PR campaign by Republicans.” After fellow panelist Ana Navarro noted that members of Bergdahl’s unit had consistently expressed concerns about the circumstances of his capture, Brazile said it was an effort to “muddy the waters” surrounding the prisoner deal. Quickly criticized for the comment by her fellow panelists on CNN, she said that she’d never impugn the testimony of a veteran, but stood by her comments. “That’s all they do . . . all they do

PARIS- Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl has told people treating him at a U.S. military medical facility in Germany that he was tortured, beaten and held in a cage by his Taliban captors in Afghanistan after he tried to escape, a senior U.S. official said Sunday. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss what Bergdahl has revealed about the conditions of his captivity. The official said it was difficult to verify the accounts Bergdahl has given since his release a week ago. Bergdahl, now 28, was captured in June 2009 after he disappeared from his

Texas State Sen. Wendy Davis suggested that the Republican stance on immigration is a racist one, and that conservatives simply don’t like “people who don’t look like them.” “You need look no further than what happened in Arizona with their anti-immigration bill and the withdrawal of tourism and the impact to their economy as a consequence of what ideological thinkers did to that state,” the Democrat said at a Human Rights Campaign PAC fundraiser in Austin, The Daily Caller reported. Miss Davis is running for governor against Republican Attorney General Greg Abbott, who is leading by double digits in most polls.

The Obama administration gave the parents of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl extraordinary insider access to the military’s hunt for their son by having them take part in a series of secure video conferences with senior commanders as well as White House and State Department officials. A former government official involved in American hostage issues said he had never heard of giving a family such access and questioned whether sensitive information could have been conveyed to Robert and Jani Bergdahl and somehow leaked out. A family spokesman said he knows of no such breach. Soon after Sgt. Bergdahl went missing in

Ted Cruz has not made himself a popular man in Washington, D.C. The Texas Republican would argue that’s the point. But even for a Senator—an elected office with the backing of an entire state—ticking off powerful people can have consequences. (Snip) A week after his election to the Senate in 2012, Cruz was named vice chair of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, which works to elect Republicans to the Senate. But he subsequently refused to endorse incumbent senators, or help them in their races, a fact that many Tea Party insurgents have seized upon. He hasn’t set foot in the NRSC in more than a year, sources say.

Feinstein, a California Democrat who chairs the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, joins a chorus of Republicans, veterans, families of deceased soldiers, and other critics of both the deal for Bergdahl’s release and the administration’s failure to give advance notice to Congress before releasing detainees from Guantanamo Bay, as required by a 2013 law.
