And Caesar’s spirit, raging for revenge, With Ate by his side come hot from hell, Shall in these confines with a monarch’s voice Cry “Havoc!” and let slip the lawyers of war. Ok, that’s not exactly what Shakespeare said in Act 3 of Julius Caesar, but that’s what Obama said to Holder. The president has unleashed the Justice Department on Beijing’s cyber-attackers.

It´s not your father´s Vietnam

I have a good friend who is a venture capitalist and travels frequently to Asia. We had lunch together a week or two ago, when he had just returned from a trip to Indonesia, Hong Kong, China and Vietnam. He is excited about its prospects: the population is remarkably young (unlike China’s and Japan’s) and the country is wide open to development, as long as you steer clear of the industries that are reserved for the country’s “communist” rulers. Most remarkable of all, my friend said that the Vietnamese people love Americans. They can’t stand the Chinese, but they love

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

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

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

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.

Barack Obama shimmied across the Shake Shack counter following lunch with Joe Biden on Friday. Whitehouse.gov posted an official picture of the impromptu show on its website. Check out his adoring fans in the front row. After six years, we know Mr. and Mrs. Obama love sticking it to the United States of America. While Barack was sliding his backside all over the counter, Michelle was in Kansas delivering another race speech to 1,200 graduating high school seniors. According to the first African-American First Lady, the nation is as racist as ever. “Today, by some measures, our schools are as

There can be no aspect of your daily life that’s removed from politics. Now you will be monitored by your own children for expressing unapproved opinions. You’d better watch what you say at the dinner table, Mom and Dad. Pete Kasperowicz, The Blaze: First lady Michelle Obama is encouraging students to monitor their older relatives, friends and co-workers for any racially insensitive comments they might make, and to challenge those comments whenever they’re made. The first lady spoke on Friday to graduating high school students in Topeka, Kansas, and in remarks released over the weekend, Obama said students need to

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.

The news website Tout Haiti reported last month that two prominent lawyers have petitioned Haiti´s Superior Court of Auditors and Administrative Disputes, demanding an audit of Bill Clinton´s management of the Interim Haiti Recovery Commission (IHRC). There are powerful interests that won´t want to see the petition succeed and it may go nowhere. But the sentiment it expresses is spreading fast. In the immortal words of Charlie Brown, Mr. Clinton has gone from hero to goat. Four years after a magnitude 7.0 earthquake toppled the capital city of Port-au-Prince and heavily damaged other parts of the country, hundreds of millions of

President Barack Obama first learned of the scandal involving Department of Veterans Affairs hospital administrators concealing the true wait times vets faced in the press, according to a claim made by White House Press Sec. Jay Carney on Monday. While the president may have not been aware of the falsified wait lists, however, reports indicate that his administration was informed of excessive wait times at the VA as early as 2008. Obama even campaigned on the issue of VA waiting lists in 2007. “When was the president first made aware of these problems?” CNN reporter Jim Acosta asked. “These fraudulent

Secretary of State John Kerry warned graduates of Boston College on Monday that they have doom and destruction to look forward to if they don't take climate change more seriously than previous generations. 'And I know its hard to feel the urgency as we sit here on an absolutely beautiful morning in Boston,' Kerry said, 'you might not see climate change as an immediate threat to your job, your communities or your families. 'But let me tell you, it is.' If the U.S. does not act, 'and it turns out that the critics and the naysayers and the members of the Flat Earth Society - if it turns out that they're wrong,

If I had had funding in 2010, Charlie Rangel, Chuck Schumer and most of the NY State legislature Democrats would not have been reelected; Andrew Cuomo would not be governor and Obama would not have been reelected. That sounds like braggadocio but I sincerely believe that my plan to reach the voters of New York City had merit. Unfortunately, I did not have funding from billionaires like the Koch Brothers and I just don´t know how to get it nor am I good at marketing myself.

Based on my extensive 18-month investigation, it is my professional conclusion that the Internet video known as Innocence of Muslims, the video allegedly responsible for Middle East violence and more importantly, the September 11, 2012 attack in Benghazi that resulted in the death of four Americans can be directly tied to a covert intelligence operation and operational assets of the U.S. Department of Justice. Additionally, the individuals and entities responsible for the Internet promotion of the video of that name can be traced not just to an intelligence operation contemporaneous to the attacks, but to previous events of historical significance and

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.

Former Mayor Bloomberg went to bat for Hillary Clinton on Sunday, ripping Republicans who say they’re worried about the one-time secretary of state’s age and health. Bloomberg called Clinton a “spectacular candidate” and took GOP strategist Karl Rove to task for suggesting the former secretary of state might not be physically fit for office. “I understand political argument,” Bloomberg told “Face the Nation” on CBS. “You can disagree with somebody on their views. You can even criticize their performance. But there is a line beyond which you shouldn’t go. And I thought it was about as inappropriate a thing you could
