Chelsea Clinton´s mother-in-law is crushed

help from Bill and Hillary -- on Super
Tuesday political primary night

Daily Mail [UK], by David Martosko

Thanksgiving at the Margolies house is going to be awkward this year. Marjorie Margolies, a former congresswoman and mother-in-law to former first daughter Chelsea Clinton, crashed and burned in a bid to return to the House of Representatives on Tuesday, losing her Democratic primary in a landslide. Her epic Pennsylvania loss to state Rep. Brendan Boyle came despite campaign fundraising appearances by both Bill and Hillary Clinton, who couldn´t push her above a 27 percent showing in a four-way race. Margolies has courted controversy since 1993 when, in her first and only term in Congress, she cast the deciding vote in favor of

I still remember watching that fateful vote on CSPAN..the bee itch waffling up there and playing coy before she cast her vote. Sold to highest bidder..she was roundly punished by her constituents and deserved it. Is her husband still in prison?

If she would have won it would be a FRONT PAGE story. Now it is buried. Still love it. The Clintons are not invisible and they have a poor record of success with candidates they support.

We may finally have our first Republican governor in Oregon since Vic Atiyeh back in the mid eighties. My kids have never experienced a republican governor.

Here´s hoping that Dennis Richardson tells the moderate losers passing for consultants to go take a hike. We saw how that worked out for Chris Dudley. Kitzhaber is in real trouble for the first time in his career because of Obamacare and the mess that Cover Oregon has made.

May the bite of Karma leave a mark to remember on the backside of Kitzhaber.

Somehow the MSM and liberals will turn this into a war on women issue. Let´s see. How many men vs. how many women won primaries last night? Or maybe how many Pennsylvania congresspeople are men vs how many women. Just watch, there will have to be something about women since the PIAPS was peripherally involved.

Dolly Parton, the 68-year old grande dame of country who stole the hearts of the 120,000 strong crowd at the mother of all rock festivals--Glastonbury--has denied that her performance involved any lip-syncing. "My boobs are fake, my hair´s fake but what is real is my voice and my heart," she told the Sun newspaper in response to suggestions that her vocals were mimed. [Snip] “This should not overshadow what was truly a great gig and accomplished performance. Dolly adored every single moment.” Check out the footage of her performance of Jolene and decide for yourself.

The Levant, the region running inland from the eastern seaboard of the Mediterranean, has been fought over for millennia. Its vital trade and military roads linking Anatolia to north Africa and Arabia have been guarded and coveted since time immemorial. Control is everything, as Moses found out to his cost when he wanted to move north up the ancient King´s Highway out of the Sinai and into Edom (modern day southern Israel): "Now let us pass through your land. We will not pass through field or vineyard, or drink water from any well; we will go along the King’s Highway,

The elderly are still being denied life-saving operations by the NHS despite new laws to prevent age discrimination, leading surgeons warn. In some areas, no-one over 75 is being offered crucial surgery for breast cancer and very few undergo bowel cancer surgery or have knee and hip replacements. [Snip] In a report today, produced with the charity Age UK, the college warns of a striking postcode lottery between local NHS bodies in the rates of over-65s being offered surgery for breast and bowel cancer, knee and hip replacements and hernia repair. The college examined figures for the rates of surgery

The number of suspected and confirmed cases of chikungunya virus in Caribbean countries has risen sharply over past weeks, health officials say. Tens of thousands of new cases have been reported in the Dominican Republic and its neighbour, Haiti. There is currently no vaccine or treatment for the mosquito-born virus which resembles dengue fever and can cause fever, skin rash and joint pain. European health authorities have warned travellers to take extra precautions. Avoid bites. The European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control told people travelling to the Caribbean to apply insect repellent and avoid mosquito bites.

Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the self-proclaimed leader of the ´Islamic State´ stretching across Iraq and Syria, has vowed to lead the conquest of Rome as he called on Muslims to immigrate to his new land to fight under its banner around the globe. Baghdadi, who holds a PhD in Islamic studies, said Muslims were being targetted and killed from China to Indonesia. Speaking as the first Caliph, or commander of the Islamic faithful since the dissolution of the Ottoman empire, he called on Muslims to rally to his pan-Islamic state.

In a grotesque parody of a ceremony of a nation state, yesterday the European Parliament opened the new session of the assembly with a flag-raising carried out by soldiers of the Eurocorps – sometimes known as the Eurokorps--a 1,000-strong embryo EU army. Eight soldiers marched carrying a giant EU flag, which was raised to a military salute. A military band played what the EU elite want people to believe is “Europe’s national anthem,” but which in fact has no legal standing as an anthem and is merely a theme tune borrowed from Beethoven’s 9th symphony. Once it was raised, the EU

Triumphant UKIP leader Nigel Farage has given EU leaders yet another scolding in the European Parliament today as MEPs took their seats for the first time since the European Elections last month that saw a wave of anti-EU candidates elected. Speaking directly to the unaccountable Euro-elite, Farage lambasted them over Britain´s place in the union, likening them to old Communists, and noting that no one had responded in the slightest to the anti-establishment sentiment coursing through Europe.

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

WASHINGTON—Robert McDonald is a onetime Army Ranger and former CEO of consumer products giant Procter & Gamble. [Snip] The longtime corporate executive was nominated by President Barack Obama to lead the VA and overhaul an agency reeling from revelations of widespread treatment delays and falsified records to cover up months-long waits for appointments. Veterans groups worry that McDonald may have trouble adjusting to a far-flung bureaucracy of more than 300,000 employees, where hundreds of hospital directors and other career executives wield great power far from Washington. The White House said in a scathing report last week that the VA is

It has been 40 years since they were on our television screens--but those decades have done nothing to diminish our love of Monty Python. Last night thousands of fans--some dressed as their favourite Python characters--descended on London´s O2 Arena for the comedy act´s stage reunion. [Snip] Last night it opened with a trademark animation featuring the face of the late Python Graham Chapman and Doctor Who’s ship--dubbed the ‘retardis’--flying through space before the Pythons came on stage. One of the first classic sketches they performed was the four Yorkshiremen comparing their tough upbringing. The audience were also treated to clips from the

Nigel Farage was today accused of ´shocking disrespect´ after turning his back on the EU´s national anthem as the European Parliament was opened in France. The UKIP leader´s public show of dissent came after the German socialist Martin Schulz was reappointed president of the European Parliament--in a shady ´backroom stitch up´ sparking anger in Britain. Mr Schulz was backed by MEPs to carry on in the £213,000 a year role, despite the fact that his Socialist group lost May´s European elections.

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.

NEW YORK — Target is asking its customers to not bring firearms into its stores, even where it is allowed by law. 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

The threat of them was an infuriating and exhilarating specter throughout the weekend, a symbol of the oppression facing the men’s rights activists who had gathered to meet for their inaugural conference. Early Friday before the opening session, a wispy trail of men — mostly white, college-through-retirement-age — waited for the doors to open outside of this Veterans of Foreign Wars outpost in suburban Detroit. One man talked about his ex-wife. A lot of guys talked about their ex-wives.

The Obama administration is not too concerned about possible Republican responses to its unilateral administrative actions on immigration. “What that they might sue?” White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said laughing when asked Tuesday about possible Republican retaliation for the executive action. “They announced they were doing that last week,” he continued. “So, the prospect that Republicans might do even more to try to obstruct the president’s agenda I think is a little far-fetched. It seems to me they have tried every single thing they can think of already to block progress for this country so the fact that they

Higher education is no longer just for kids in the top quarter or the top half of the class. College is for everyone," First lady Michelle Obama told a gathering of school counselors in Florida on Tuesday. "Every student in this country needs some higher education, whether that´s two-year degree, a four-year degree, or professional training of some sort." Mrs. Obama went to the annual meeting of the American School Counselor Association in Florida to thank counselors for taking on a demanding job without the resources necessary to meet the challenges.

Reverend Steve Fielder, a pastor at the First Union Missionary Baptist Church in Meridian, Mississippi, has accused Mississippi Senator Thad Cochran’s campaign of engaging in an illegal and criminal campaign scheme to purchase the votes of black community members. The suspect votes were cast during Cochran’s successful effort to defeat Tea Party challenger Chris McDaniel in the Mississippi Republican primary run-off held last week. If true, such an action would be clearly illegal under both federal law and Mississippi statutes, specifically MS Code 97-13-1; MS Code 97-13-3 (2013) (Federal Code 18 U.S.C. 597, U.S.C. 1973i(c)), each punishable by a prison
