Arizona College Student Bounces
Back From the Dead After
Nearly Giving Organs

ABC News, by Susan Donaldson James

Original Article

Posted By:mitzi, 5/16/2014 11:21:38 PM

Two years ago, Sam Schmid´s close encounter with death was called a "Christmas miracle." As he lay in a coma after sustaining massive brain injuries in a car crash, doctors were discussing organ donation with his parents and ready to take him off life support. Schmid astounded those at his hospital bedside who thought he was brain dead, raising two fingers to signal he still had life left in him. But at the time, no one knew if the Tucson, Ariz., college student would ever return to his studies -- or even walk or talk again. Today at 23, he

Comments:
They should really reconsider this "brain dead" business. Some of these doctors act like organ vultures

I agree, they are too quick to call "brain death" these days.

Palin on Border Crisis: Congress
Lacks Guts to Impeach ´Tyrant´
Obama over Lawlessness
Breitbart Big Government, by Tony Lee    Original Article

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin said she felt Congress lacked the guts to impeach President Barack Obama for acting like a "tyrant" by refusing to enforce the country´s immigration laws and deliberately causing a humanitarian crisis at the border. (Snip) "Anyone associated with support for Obama’s deceptive ploys that would stoop to using and abusing innocent children must be voted out of office," she thunderously wrote. "Anyone who has shined the boot that Obama’s put on the neck of our economy and security must be held accountable by those with the legal power to do so – Congress." Palin said

   

 

  


 
Blue State Blues: Obama´s ´All
Options´ Include Surrender
Breitbart Big Government, by Joel B. Pollack    Original Article
Posted By: mitzi- 6/13/2014 1:57:14 PM     Post Reply
President Barack Obama tried to fend off criticism of his Iraq policy, as that country fell into the clutches of a terrorist army this week, by insisting that he was considering "all the options" for a response. "I don´t rule out anything," he said. Of course he doesn´t. The essence of postmodernism--of which this president is the political fulfillment--are a profound moral relativism, a habitual flexibility, a hermeneutical hanging-out. Yet what it mean to consider "all the options"? The president uses that phrase to suggest that he has not ruled out military force. He said much the same thing about

Obama: Iraq needs to solve its own problems
Associated Press, by Staff    Original Article

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama says Iraq’s government must make a sincere effort to address sectarian differences, or else U.S. military help won’t succeed in curbing the insurgency there. He says, quote, “We can’t do it for them.” Obama says the U.S. won’t send troops back into Iraq. But he says he’s asked his national security team to prepare a range of other options. He says he’ll review those options in the coming days. Obama says the risk posed by terrorists in Iraq could eventually pose a threat to U.S. interests, too. A fast-moving insurgency in Iraq has taken over

All the President’s Muses: Obama
and Prosecutorial Misconduct
New York Observer, by Sidney Powell    Original Article
Posted By: mitzi- 6/13/2014 12:12:34 PM     Post Reply
As Ninth Circuit Chief Judge Alex Kozinski has written, prosecutorial misconduct has become “an epidemic.” And evidence has come to light that our president, the nation’s chief law enforcement official, seeks his counsel from the worst. If ever a picture was worth a thousand words, it is a recently released White House photo of President Obama and his muses—if one only knew the truth behind those muses whispering in the President’s ear as they strategized in the aftermath of the Benghazi tragedy. To understand the (politely-put) “lack of transparency” from the White House, the enormous politicization of the Department of

In an interview to promote her book on BBC, Hillary Clinton called the Russian so-called reset "a brilliant stroke." The statement came in response to a question about whether she was in retrospect embarrassed about the policy. (snip) The BBC reporter asked, "You famously pressed the reset button. Are you embarrassed by that now, that gesture?" "No I think it was a brilliant stroke which in retrospect it appears even more so, because look at what we accomplished," the former secretary of state responded. "Between the Russian invasion of Georgia in August 2008, which of course torpedoed relations between United

Sporting a donation bucket for the mock "Hillary Clinton Fund for Dead Broke Politicians," Campus Reform tried to solicit "donations" from Students at Georgetown University. Not only were the students stingy, but they also disagreed with Hillary Clinton regarding what it means to be "dead broke." (snip) "We came out of the White House not only dead broke but in debt. Uh, we had no money when we got there, and we struggled to, y´know, piece together the resources for mortgages for houses, for Chelsea´s education. You know, it was not easy," Clinton said on Monday in an interview with ABC´s

Mass Shootings Combined

While announcing that they would not longer give killers the opportunity at glory that comes from having their names mentioned and their photographs aired on television, Sun News also address the extremely low rate of "mass shootings" in America compared to the excruciatingly high rate of murder in gun-controlled Chicago. According to the Sun News, mass shootings around the world--including the U.S.--are so rare that news agencies make a mistake by seizing on them. Focusing specifically on the U.S., Sun News reported: "And in the U.S., they account for less than one percent of all gun-related deaths. Far more people

Petition to Fire George Will

Last week, George Will wrote a column about how progressive politics have fomented "rape culture" on college campuses. The column was not well received by some, or even, as a great many of the histrionic responses would indicate, well understood. I received the following press release yesterday, headlined: "87,000 Call on The Washington Post to Address Sexism, Fire George Will." A group called UltraViolet was touting the success of an online petition they´d whipped up over the controversy. From the release: “The past week has seen the Washington Post devolve to violent and shameful rhetoric that normalizes rape and violence

After Cantor Loss, Frank Luntz
Declares: ´We Republican Pollsters Suck

Appearing on Wednesday´s CBS This Morning, Republican pollster Frank Luntz attacked his own profession following the surprising primary defeat of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor: "Right now there are 230 House Republicans who are waking up praying that they do not have Eric Cantor´s pollster. Honestly – and I´m one of them – we Republican pollsters suck. We have no ability to be able to analyze the electorate." [Listen to the audio] Luntz noted how Cantor´s pollster "told him twelve days ago that he was going to win by thirty-four points and then he loses by ten....he didn´t even see

Hillary Fails History: Calls Lincoln
a ´Senator from Illinois´
Breitbart's InstaBlog, by John Nolte    Original Article
Posted By: mitzi- 6/11/2014 2:56:22 PM     Post Reply
President Abraham Lincoln was never a Senator. Ever. From Illinois or anywhere else. Other than a single, two-year term as an Illinois Congressman, Lincoln held no elective office other than that of our 16th president. (Snip) Yesterday, President Obama´s Twitter feed claimed the first moonwalk occurred in 1963 when it really happened in July of 1969. Democrats can be lazy about facts n´ stuff because the media is too busy checking Sarah Palin´s latest Facebook post to see if she mistakenly used a semi-colon instead of a full colon.

The decision of the Republicans in Virginia’s Seventh Congressional District to retire the House majority leader, Eric Cantor, and advance a young economics professor strikes us as promising, even if we are in the radical pro-immigration camp. How in the world can Congress address the immigration question before it addresses the lack of economic growth? And how can it address the problem of growth without addressing the collapse of the dollar? And how can address the collapse of the dollar without addressing a debt ceiling that Mr. Cantor kept voting to raise? These are questions that were well marked by

It is clear from a canvass of other columnists and bloggers that I am in good and numerous company in trying to find anything worthwhile to write about, and must warn readers not to be too complacent that I have succeeded in the balance of these reflections in finding one. I have a more radical solution to this problem than many: I am going overseas in a few days and will not be filing again until August or even September. (snip) This is not leadership. It is not even, in Margaret Thatcher’s expression, “followership.” It is just incoherence and vacuity.

Eliana’s report is just stunning — no matter how many times similar “mishaps” have occurred in this administration. The IRS, like other government agencies, has lots of reasons to maintain emails, so I’m curious about whether they will be similarly informing courts, Congress, litigants, FOIA petitioners, and other people and bodies they must periodically make disclosures and reports to that they’ve lost nearly two years’ worth of agency communications? Or was this just one of those highly, highly unusual computer crashes that affects only the email account of Lois Lerner and any executive branch official with whom she happened to

Hailey, ID-The father of embattled POW Bowe Bergdahl, who landed on US soil today, waged a sinister campaign of stalking and harassment against pretty twin sisters – even stealing a gnome from their garden and peaking at them in the shower, the sisters claim in shocking police reports. Bearded Robert ´Bob´ Bergdahl drove by the home of Lacey and Allie Hillman ‘several times a day’ over a period of months and left ´creepy´ notes for them, the sisters allege in police documents, obtained exclusively by MailOnline. Once Bergdahl banged on Allie’s door and accused her of ´two-timing´ him – despite

Washington, DC – Today, Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp (R-MI) issued the following statement regarding the Internal Revenue Service informing the Committee that they have lost Lois Lerner emails from a period of January 2009 – April 2011. Due to a supposed computer crash, the agency only has Lerner emails to and from other IRS employees during this time frame. The IRS claims it cannot produce emails written only to or from Lerner and outside agencies or groups, such as the White House, Treasury, Department of Justice, FEC, or Democrat offices.

Top Jeb Bush adviser Mike Murphy, who did not even pay attention to Dave Brat´s campaign like Breitbart News did, has falsely been claiming that Cantor´s embrace of amnesty for illegal immigrants was not the reason he lost last Tuesday. Liberal writer Mickey Kaus had enough of Murphy´s nonsense and slammed him on Twitter on Friday evening. Kaus became Brat´s de facto press secretary and top advocate on Twitter in the last months of the campaign because Kaus, like Brat, opposes amnesty for illegal immigrants because it would hurt American workers. He mentioned to Murphy that talk radio host Laura Ingraham

The Attorney General of the United States told a homosexual advocacy group on Tuesday night that the Boy Scouts of America "preserves and perpetuates the worst kind of stereotypes" by refusing to allow homosexuals to serve as Boy Scout troop leaders. "Today, courageous lesbian, gay, and bisexual individuals routinely put their lives on the line as members of America´s armed services," Holder told Lambda Legal Tuesday night. "And if these men and women are fit for military service, then surely they are fit to mentor, to teach, and to serve as role models for the leaders of future generations."

ISIS, the brutal insurgent/terrorist group formerly known as al Qaeda in Iraq, has seized much of western and northern Iraq and even threatens towns not far from Baghdad. From where did ISIS spring? One of George W. Bush´s most toxic legacies is the introduction of al Qaeda into Iraq, which is the ISIS mother ship. If this wasn´t so tragic it would be supremely ironic, because before the U.S. invasion of Iraq in 2003, top Bush officials were insisting that there was an al Qaeda-Iraq axis of evil. Their claims that Saddam Hussein´s men were training members of al Qaeda how to

Barack and Michelle Obama´s weekend visit to Palm Springs, California, started out with a wardrobe malfunction for the first lady - but luckily the president was there to save the day. The first couple were stepping off Air Force One at the Palm Springs International Airport on a balmy Friday evening when a gust of wind nearly blew up the voluminous skirt of Mrs Obama´s green-and-black summer frock. The 50-year-old first lady was photographed struggling to tame the billowing fabric, with a relaxed Mr Obama walking alongside her with a rueful smile on his wife.Eventually, the commander-in-chief came to his

Anaheim, CA - President Obama, appearing emboldened after his recent move to cut carbon emissions from coal-fired power plants, on Saturday ridiculed members of Congress who deny climate change or plead scientific ignorance as an alibi for avoiding an uncomfortable truth. Speaking in gleefully sarcastic terms to a commencement ceremony at the University of California, Irvine, Mr. Obama likened those who deny climate change to people who would have told John F. Kennedy, at the dawn of the space program, that the moon “was made of cheese.” He saved his most scathing words for lawmakers who say they are not qualified to
