Hillary Clinton sounds populist
note while eyeing White House

Washington Times, by Ben Wolfgang

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 5/17/2014 12:07:58 AM

Hillary Clinton offered clues on Friday that she intends to ride a wave of populist sentiment all the way to the White House. The former secretary of state and likely 2016 presidential candidate told an audience in Washington that average Americans no longer have the same opportunities previous generations enjoyed, and that the poor find it increasingly difficult, if not impossible, to break into the middle class. Mrs. Clinton’s comments echoed those of President Obama, who in recent months increasingly has turned his attention to income inequality, wage gaps and other economic problems plaguing the middle class.

"...average Americans no longer have the same opportunities previous generations enjoyed."

The Democrat´s anti-white policies and importing 30 million illegals has nothing to do with it (eye roll).

Populism is a four letter word.

When a candidate or a politician gives away the store to buy votes a great evil is unleashed. The people have then discovered they can vote themselves money and benefits. The genie no longer fits in the bottle.

As the designer of HillaryCare, then member of the senate, and finally Sec of State, Hillary Clinton has been in the midst of and a significant part of the problem for the last 2 decades! While the nation has suffered she and her husband have gotten rich. There´s nothing wrong with getting rich, I want to do that too, but that old "I am one of you" dog will not hunt!

Populism is the last refuge of an incompetent, crooked elitist.

Erdogan Takes Cue from
‘Outstanding Friend’ Obama

PJ Media, by Bridget Johnson    Original Article

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan is running for president, and Turkish media have noticed that his campaign logo looks a lot like President Obama’s. Obama and Erdogan have been close, with Obama calling the Turkish leader “an outstanding friend.” According to Hurriyet Daily News: Both logos feature a sun to symbolize hope, with the circular shape of the Erdogan logo tracing the outline of a tunnel. According to AKP officials, the sun – like the light at the end of a tunnel – is where a hard, zigzagging road leads, in reference to Erdogan’s “journey of life.” They added

Texas oil production set to

HOUSTON — Texas now is pumping 36 percent of the nation’s oil, more than doubling its production in three years, according to new federal data. The Energy Information Administration reports that Texas oil production topped 3 million barrels per day in April, for the first time since the late 1970s. Nearly as much crude flowed from Texas as from Iraq, which was the second largest OPEC producer in April at about 3.2 million barrels per day, according to Bloomberg. The news agency estimates that Iraq’s production fell to 2.9 million barrels in June amid insurgent violence. That would drop it

Indictment of suspect in Benghazi
attack debunks the Obama tale
Washington Times, by Rowan Scarborough    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 7/1/2014 10:14:19 PM     Post Reply
The Obama administration’s just-released criminal complaint against the alleged mastermind of the Benghazi terrorist attacks provides a final contradiction to its own evolving explanations for what happened that day. The Justice Department’s indictment spells out a calculated conspiracy by Ahmed Abu Khatallah and associates to attack the U.S. diplomatic mission and CIA annex, which killed four Americans. The indictment might be viewed as a death knell for a theory that the attack resulted from a spontaneous protest against a U.S.-produced video.Now in custody, Khatallah was a commander of Ansar al-Sharia in Benghazi, a U.S.-designated terrorist group, and is himself deemed

The recent decision by an obscure administrative law board to cancel the Washington Redskins‘ trademark registrations came despite the fact the agency hadn’t received a single letter from a member of the public complaining about the team’s name, records show. The Trademark Trial and Appeal Board, which is part of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, ruled last month that the name was disparaging to American Indians. The team is appealing that decision. Politicians, including President Obama, have waded into the team name controversy, with many saying the team should change its name. But despite widespread media attention and a

With the Israeli Air Force pounding dozens of targets inside Gaza Tuesday in retaliation for the death of three Israeli teens believed to have been murdered at the hands of Palestinian militants, the stars appear to be aligned for an especially fierce spasm of new violence between the two sides. “We are in a very combustible situation,” Uzi Rabi, a historian at Tel Aviv University, said Tuesday, adding that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is facing mounting pressure not only from hawkish government ministers in Jerusalem but an increasingly unified Israeli public to expand the military incursion into Gaza.

“When ten different instances occurred when President Bush was in office where American diplomatic personnel were killed around the world, how many outraged Republican members of Congress were there? Zero.” –Former president Bill Clinton, interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” June 29, 2014 Republicans have held numerous hearings over the 2012 attacks on a U.S. diplomatic post in Benghazi, Libya, which left four Americans dead, including the U.S. ambassador. Former secretary of state Hillary Rodham Clinton has been a frequent target of those hearings, and her husband clearly is irritated by the attention. What’s he talking about when he refers

The White House released its 2014 salary list Tuesday, allowing those Americans interested in such things a window into the lives of people in the Obama administration. We are such people! So we crunched a bunch of the numbers. The toplines: The White House employs 456 people, either as employees or detailees. That´s down four from 2013. The combined payroll for those employees is just over $37.78 million. That´s down about $83,000 from 2013. Between 2013 and 2014, the White House added 161 employees but lost even more. Those new employees earn a combined $12.7 million annually, or, on average,

For these Supreme Court justices,
unanimous doesn’t mean unity
Washington Post, by Robert Barnes    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 7/1/2014 9:57:19 PM     Post Reply
Supreme Court experts have been looking for the right word to describe the term’s record number of agree-not-to-disagree unanimous decisions: Faux-nimity? Un-unanimous? The number of rulings without dissent skyrocketed to rates not seen since the 1940s, and the court’s percentage of closely divided decisions dropped to a modern low. Such cases can mask deeper conflicts, and those were on display in the term’s finale this week. The decisions announced Monday showed that stark divisions — conservative opposed to liberal; Republican appointees on one side, Democratic ones on the other; even women vs. men — exist on the court beneath a frequent

JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon told his employees that he has ´curable´ throat cancer. In a note to staff, Dimon said, "The good news is that the prognosis from my doctors is excellent, the cancer was caught quickly, and my condition is curable." In after-hours trading, the bank´s shares slid 0.7% after the news. JPMorgan´s board of directors has been briefed on his condition, which will likely call for about eight weeks of radiation and chemotherapy at Memorial Sloan Kettering in New York City, according to the note. The cancer is believed to be contained in Dimon´s throat and lymph nodes

A second source has confirmed that JP Morgan Chase has asked each of its employees whether they are “an ally of the LGBT community,” which employees have taken as a veiled threat. Each year JP Morgan Chase sends its employees a survey asking questions related to management and other non-controversial issues.

Hillary Clinton thinks the Supreme Court’s ruling in the Hobby Lobby case on Monday is a step toward the kind of anti-women policies seen in extremist, “undemocratic” nations. The Supreme Court found that employers with religious objections can opt out of the HHS mandate to provide coverage for contraception. “It is a disturbing trend that you see in a lot of societies that are very unstable, antidemocratic, and frankly prone to extremism,” she said at the Aspen Institute on Monday. In such societies, the former secretary of state explained, “women and women’s bodies are used as the defining and unifying

ruling in birth-control dispute

The administration cannot force closely held private corporations to pay for contraception in their health insurance plans if it violates their religious beliefs, a divided Supreme Court ruled Monday, dealing a political and logistical setback to President Obama’s signature law. Justices ruled that a 20-year-old federal law, passed overwhelmingly and signed by President Clinton to protect freedom of religion, trumped the president’s desire to have contraception paid for by employers. But the court welcomed the administration to try to come up with other ways of providing birth control without imposing a burden on employers. Indeed, it was just such a

A government-contracted security force threatened to arrest doctors and nurses if they divulged any information about the contagion threat at a refugee camp housing illegal alien children at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas, sources say. In spite of the threat, several former camp workers broke their confidentiality agreements and shared exclusive details with me about the dangerous conditions at the camp. They said taxpayers deserve to know about the contagious diseases and the risks the children pose to Americans. I have agreed to not to disclose their identities because they fear retaliation and prosecution.

Megyn Kelly faced off with former Weather Underground leader Bill Ayers in an explosive interview tonight in which Kelly repeatedly confronted Ayers about bombings and killings that the radical group was reportedly involved in. Kelly asked Ayers how many bombings he was personally responsible for. Ayers declined to answer, but did acknowledge the “terrible risk” they took with some of their more out-there tactics. Kelly grilled him on how the Weather Underground “declared a state of war against the U.S. government” and encouraged violence. Kelly went through a series of instances in which the Weather Underground was tied to bombings and killings,

A crowd of 300 angry protestors forced three buses carrying 140 undocumented migrant children and their parents to turn around in Murrieta, California, on Tuesday after they blocked the road. The dramatic confrontation between the flag waving protestors and the Homeland Security buses came one day after Mayor Alan Long urged residents to resist the federal government´s plan to transfer the Central American migrants to California to ease overcrowding of facilities along the Texas-Mexico border. Holding up banners that said ´Return to Sender´ and suggesting the children should be sent to the White House instead, the irate protestors succeeded when the buses

Today, the Supreme Court ruled in the nationally followed Hobby Lobby case. The for-profit corporations that brought these cases to the Supreme Court—a craft store and a cabinet manufacturer—argued that the corporations’ religious convictions should excuse them from compensating their employees through the comprehensive health insurance required by law. Specifically, these private employers sought to exclude insurance coverage of several forms of birth control because, contrary to medical and scientific evidence, the corporations’ owners believe some birth control causes abortions. The Affordable Care Act already includes special arrangements for houses of worship and religious non-profits, like schools and hospitals. Houses

The Israeli Air Force carried out what it called "precision strikes" on 34 "terror targets" in the Gaza Strip overnight, after the discovery of the bodies of three Israeli teenagers who were kidnapped in the West Bank earlier this month. The Israeli Defense Forces said the strikes were in response to rockets being launched earlier into Israel from Gaza. The waves of rockets from Gaza and IDF retaliations have picked up since the teens were kidnapped and the Israeli crackdown began. Hamas has not claimed responsibility for launching the rockets but Israel holds them responsible for everything coming out of Gaza. The Israel Defense

In a statement posted Wednesday on the retailer´s corporate blog, interim CEO John Mulligan said that Target wants a "safe and inviting" atmosphere for its shoppers and employees. "Bringing firearms to Target creates an environment that is at odds with the family-friendly shopping and work experience we strive to create," he said.

WASHINGTON – Republicans see the November midterm elections as an opportunity to take the nation on a different path and call for a new conservative message focusing on the problems of regular Americans. During the latest convention of conservative activist Ralph Reed’s Faith and Freedom Coalition in Washington, D.C., Republicans confidently proclaimed that the GOP has an opportunity to turn back the past six years of President Obama’s administration in the midterm elections. “There’s only one thing to be done in 2014…and that is to take back America by taking back the Senate,” Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said

Valerie Jarrett, a senior adviser to President Barack Obama, has a unique item of herself in her office: a photo of herself with three figurines bowing down in worship in front of it. The photo drew attention after Jarrett´s "Meet the Press" interview Sunday — and Jarrett posted a tweet Tuesday afternoon assuring her supporters the display was simply a novelty item. "Don´t worry friends, it was a gag gift," Jarrett wrote, pivoting to some White House messaging about the economy. "Us strong women don´t need worship," she continued, "just an economy for the 21st century. #WomenSucceed." Business Insider directly

Two Texans may be vying for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016: Sen. Ted Cruz and Governor Rick Perry. Cruz overwhelmingly won the Texas GOP 2016 convention straw poll, confirming his position as the conservative grassroots candidate. He fires up crowds unlike any other politician today, and the power of motivating voters and volunteers should not be underestimated. But will he run in 2016? The signs point to yes. One of his staffers left his office to start a committee to draft him into running. He has visited the early states and spent many weekends during his first 18 months in office raising
