A 1980 campaign you may have missed
PowerLine, by Scott Johnson

Original Article

Posted By:Hazymac, 5/18/2014 9:27:36 PM

Pitching in to promote the Democrats’ leading theme of this campaign season, the New York Times features Nicholas Confeessore’s page-one story in today’s paper: “Quixotic ’80 campaign gave birth to the Kochs’ powerful network.” Confessore’s story comes out of a deep dive into the Libertarian Party archive at the University of Virginia. (Snip) Confessore claims to have reviewed thousand of documents from the University of Virginia archive, but he didn’t come away with much. Confessore’s story must be a great disappointment to his friends at American Bridge, which despite Confessore’s anodyne description appears to be a PAC headed by David

Comments:
David Brock, huh? Strange bedfellows, to say the least.

Two of my leftist friend´s worst enemies are named Charles and David, and their last names aren´t even Koch.

Incidentally, the grounds--don´t ever say the campus--at UVa were my own personal stomping grounds about six years before the events in this story.

Shoot for the Moon

Sarah Kliff, formerly of the Washington Post, dissects the failure of Obamacare in Massachusetts. In article titled “How Massachusetts screwed up Obamacare” she describes how they “shot for the moon” and missed. (Snip) The problem with all-or-nothing undertakings is if they fail, they fail completely. The Krell Machine goes haywire and the Forbidden Planet explodes. Obama should have known this, but chose bet to everything on the venture. Kliff seems to think Obamacare will sail serenely on. But perhaps the only difference between Healthcare.gov and the Massachusetts Connector is that Healthcare.gov hasn’t run out of money yet.

TV watchers will recall the familiar advertising trope of yesteryear in which we were told “4 out of 5 dentists [or doctors] recommend” using fluoride toothpaste, aspirin for headaches, or some such. We were always left to wonder whether that fifth doctor was a moron or something, never pausing to consider that the fifth doctor might well recommend the same thing, but emphasize something else first (like flossing perhaps, or Tylenol instead of aspirin because of sensitive stomachs, etc). But Archie Bunker was coming back on the air in 30 seconds, so most of us didn’t follow up on these

Administrations absolutely swamped by scandal have a defense unavailable to more competent administrations: dense pack. (Snip) The Obama administration’s primary defense against any scandal taking root is that it must inevitably be displaced next week by a new one. So nothing lasts. All anyone can do is Move On. The Financial Times actually believes that a Veteran’s Administration scandal may taint president Obama in a way that Benghazi, IRS, the AP wiretapping scandal, Egypt, Iran, Syria, Libya, NSA, Ukraine and Obamacare could not. In an article filled with outrage the writer thinks, this time it sticks. Why should it? Dense

If I were a politician, I hope I’d be ruthless. If I weren’t, I’d be a certain loser. Everyone I ever met it in that profession was far from a choirboy. The village priest is not likely to be able to stand up to the likes of, say, Harry Reid, which is only about a couple of degrees short of standing up to Saddam. (Snip) Every human I have met has strengths and weaknesses in varying degrees and can be used for different purposes. Seeing people in groups is reactionary. It is, as we know, what Democrats do.

Scott wrote earlier this morning about Harry Reid’s support for a constitutional amendment that would give Congress the power to regulate spending on political campaigns, down to the last dollar. The amendment was proposed by Tom Udall last year; you can read the full text here. (Snip) The proposed amendment is astonishingly radical. It would allow Congress to ban any spending on federal elections, which means that a challenger could beat an incumbent in only the most extraordinary circumstances. (Campaign finance regulation has always been mostly about incumbent protection.) Or Congress could ban all contributions or independent spending by individuals

   

 

  


 
Stunning election in India
American Thinker, by Thomas Lifson    Original Article
Posted By: Hazymac- 5/17/2014 5:21:50 PM     Post Reply
India may be at a historic turning point, as voters delivered a sweeping victory to the BJP party led by Narendra Modi, as predicted on these pages more than 2 weeks ago. This represents a repudiation of the Congress Party, the heir to the Gandhi-Nehru semi-socialist political machine that has ruled India virtually since independence. While the American mainstream media has virtually ignored this embrace of free markets and anti-jihadism, the Obama administration will soon be forced to back-peddle and deal with a man it has barred from receiving a visa to visit the United States. Modi’s party has achieved

Next month, if all goes according to plan, the Environmental Protection Agency will launch the most serious assault on American business since the 1970´s. New regulatiosn governing the release of Carbon Dioxide will hit every corner of the economy, causing your electric bill to skyrocket (as promised by candidate Obama) and adding billions in costs to manufacturers and other businesses that generate CO2. (Snip) The reason is that this is not about saving the earth. It is about control. Even if you accept the theory of global warming, there is no way you can prove that the measures being ordered

Many of the reactions to Narenda Modi’s election as Indian new Prime Minister are of the form: ‘how can a devout Hindu be a modern leader’? (Snip) There is something atavistic about him, a sense that he doesn’t fit into the approved mold. The modern leader is supposed to be compassionate, to forget who is and remember who he is not. New York Times’ Gardiner Harris is worried in particular about a tolerance deficit. He writes: “Discrimination against Muslims in India is so rampant that many barely muster outrage … Now, after a landslide electoral triumph Friday by the Bharatiya

I’ve been predicting that Russia would not send its army into eastern Ukraine, but stand back and let the country dissolve into chaos. (Snip) We set out to propagate democracy in Eastern Europe, and helped to push Putin’s popularity rating at home above 80%. In the entire sorry history of US diplomacy, I can think of nothing that more resembles an own goal. Nice going, guys. Putin isn’t a genius. We are complete idiots. We have urgent national security needs, but we don’t talk about them. Where is the sense of urgency

James Van Allen, after whom the radiation belt is named, asked in 2004 whether human spaceflight is a legacy dream, a survival of some outdated science-fiction notion, now overtaken by harsh reality. (Snip) Would it be the Moon, would it be Mars, would it be the Space Station? They could hardly anticipate that Obama would actually shoot for “none of the above”; that in 2014 a resurgent Russia would actually threaten to deny the United States access to the space station and even the use of Russian rocket boosters. A “fundamentally transformed America” had gone from being able to put a

Everything old is new again. Sixty years after the Supreme Court’s Brown versus Board of Education ruling, segregation is back. “In New York, California and Texas, more than half of Latino students are enrolled in schools that are 90 percent minority or more, the report found. (Snip) If you said the ‘upsurge in US oil production’ didn’t belong in this series then maybe you’d be wrong. It belongs, in the same way that two sides are part of the same coin. Some things work, some things don’t. The trick is knowing which. But in the chaos, the players — even

If this clip is any indication, Rep. Trey Gowdy won’t be letting the media off the hook for its silence on Benghazi: Congressman Trey Gowdy (R-SC) turned the tables on the media and asked them questions about Benghazi . The silence was deafening. It seems like those in the room are a little embarrassed when Gowdy calls them out, and why shouldn’t they be? It is their responsibility to go after the hard questions – and when it comes to Benghazi, many asked nothing but fluff.

Yes - but what exactly is the president mad about? Is he mad that the VA deliberately falsified records showing that veterans were not being seen at VA hospitals in a timely manner? Or is he mad that the press found out about it? At any rate, I guess we´re supposed to assume that Barack Obama is "not going to take it anymore," right? USA Today: President Obama is "madder than hell" over delays at VA hospitals that may have contributed to the deaths of patients, and is determined to make improvements, a top aide says.

Segregation by force of law is no longer legally acceptable in America, but de facto segregation still plagues our schools and neighborhoods, First Lady Michelle Obama told a group of graduating students Friday night. The First Lady was expected to use the speech to celebrate about diversity in America. Instead, she took racism head on, telling the Topeka, Kansas, seniors, ´by some measures, our schools are as segregated as they were back when Dr. King gave his final speech.´ ´And even in schools that seem integrated according to the numbers, when you look a little closer, you see students from different

Attorney General Eric Holder said on Saturday while public utterances of bigotry are roundly condemned in the United States racial discrimination persists in more subtle ways. (Snip) He said the new battleground against discrimination should focus on policies and laws that appear race-neutral but in practice impede equal opportunity. "This is the work that truly matters - because policies that disenfranchise specific groups are more pernicious than hateful rants," Holder told the graduates at Morgan State, a historically black college. He cited disciplinary practices in schools that punish black males at three times the rate of their white peers. He

Dr. Benjamin Carson is becoming a serious voice in the political arena. The Retired Head of Pediatric Neurosurgery at John Hopkins and recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom may even be considering a run for the highest office in the land. In light of the Benghazi hearings and IRS scandal, Carson penned an editorial for the National Review, objectively pointing out why Obama is unfit for office. On Benghazi: “This should not be a partisan issue, because the implications of ignoring or prevaricating about the underlying mistakes will have far-reaching consequences.

The main squeeze of openly gay NFL player Michael Sam comes from a family of Midwest mobsters. Vito Cammisano, the hunky 23-year-old former collegiate swimmer, is the grandson of the late Mafia boss William (Willie the Rat) Cammisano. His father, Gerlarmo (Jerry) Cammisano, 60, followed in the family’s shady business and ended up doing 14 months in prison for running a Kansas City-based gambling ring, according to records. But on Saturday the Cammisano name became part of a feel-good sports story of the year when Sam became the first openly gay player drafted by an NFL team as Vito proudly stood at his

New York — Swimming pools are a much greater danger to black children and teens than they are to other kids, a new government study shows. Black children ages 5 to 19 drown in swimming pools at a rate more than five times that of white children, the research found. That suggests a lot of blacks are not learning to swim, said the lead author, Dr. Julie Gilchrist of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Swimming is a life-saving skill, not just another sport, she said. The racial differences were smaller for drownings in lakes or other bodies of

Rep. Peter King, New York Republican, said Friday there are many unanswered questions surrounding the Sept. 11, 2012 terrorist attack on Benghazi, but that to make it a political attack on former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is “wrong.” “To me, there are major questions here as to why more action was not taken to provide security beforehand, and also when was this decision made, and why was it was made, in the immediate aftermath of the attacks, to say it was caused by a video when nothing on the ground was saying that?” Mr. King, a member of the House Intelligence Committee, said on CNN. Mr. King said officials in the CIA,

This is your dream, America. Or this is your nightmare. Whatever the case, buckle up. Because Michael Sam just got here. His first few days with St. Louis Rams have been fascinating and thought-provoking and criticism-generating, and the odds are it´s going to keep happening. Because in Michael Sam, the NFL doesn´t just have its first openly gay player. Its first openly gay player is openly gay. Not trying to play word games here, but Michael Sam hasn´t played an NFL game or attended an NFL practice -- hell, he was drafted just three days ago -- and already he has shown

At the New York Times building in Manhattan two days ago, the entire staff was assembled at a meeting in front of publisher Arthur Sulzberger Jr. The ashen-faced Sulzberger then made the announcement that would shake the underpinnings loose from the surface of our world: Jill Abramson, the executive editor of the Times, had been fired. The news settled slowly over America’s journalists, creeping into their bones and leaving them in a state of flabbergasted paralysis. For years they’d covered the Great Recession in which 8.7 million people lost their jobs. Now it had finally happened to someone important. Then the paralysis

A prominent New York ophthalmologist believes that a special pair of glasses worn by former former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton are the type used to treat the double vision sometimes caused by severe head trauma. In an interview with Fox News, Dr. Marc Werner said the glasses had a Fresnel prism. ´In order to see one object, your eyes need to be pointed in the same direction. If your eyes are misaligned, one way to optically align them is to put a prism ... on your glasses,´ he said. Karl Rove recently called Clinton's health into question as he speculated on her time in the hospital in December 2012. She was reportedly fighting a

A growing political firestorm over allegations of treatment delays and secret wait lists at veterans hospitals nationwide will likely dominate Sunday news shows. (Snip) Other topics on the shows include the 60th anniversary of Brown v. Board of Education, and sexual assault on college campuses. Here´s the lineup: CBS´ "Face the Nation" will talk with White House chief of staff Denis McDonough about the latest developments surrounding the Veteran Affairs investigation. McDonough will give the scoop on what the Obama Administration is doing to address reports of VA facilities concealing long wait times for patients.
