Ukraine crisis: rebels in east prepare
for assault on Donetsk city centre

Telegraph (UK), by Roland Oliphant

Original Article

Posted By:toledo, 5/28/2014 9:04:28 AM

Rebel separatist fighters in Donetsk were on Tuesday night readying for a major offensive by government forces on the city centre, as details began to emerge of Monday’s battle for the city’s airport that left dozens dead in the bloodiest day so far of the east Ukraine uprising. Oleksandr Lukyanchenko, the mayor of Donetsk, said 38 fighters and two civilians died in the battle that left Ukrainian forces in control of the city’s airport and poised for a potential assault on the city itself. Rebel leaders claimed the death toll was as high as 100. Mr Lukyanchenko said the dead

I´m getting tired of reading about these "rebels" in the eastern Ukraine who are nothing more than uniformed Russians without insignia. Now that the Ukrainians have upped the ante, will Putin send in unmarked aircraft?

IRS Official Whose Emails Were "Lost"
Visited White House More Than 30 Times
Townhall, by Katie Pavlich    Original Article
Posted By: Toledo- 6/21/2014 12:03:03 PM     Post Reply
Last night on The Kelly File Chief Counsel at the American Center for Law and Justice Jay Sekulo revealed that the former chief of staff to former IRS Commissioner Steven Miller, Nikole Flax, visited the White House 35 times after talking with former head of tax exempt groups Lois Lerner about working to criminally prosecute conservative tea party groups for "lying" about political activity. At the White House, Flax met with a top Obama aid during some of those visits. This entire exchange is worth your time. The email discussed in the segment above is detailed in this previously reported

Well, that’s fun: an Obama megadonor, who donated over a million dollars to an Obama PAC in 2012 and dozens of other Democrat donors, was just indicted on a smattering of charges, including fraud (for running a multimillion-dollar kickback scheme), and, uh, manslaughter.Kareem Ahmed, the CEO of Landmark Medical Management, was indicted by a California grand jury along with 15 of his associates. In the indictment, obtained by Talking Points Memo, Ahmed is accused of “developing topical cream formulas ‘based on the profitability of the ingredients,’ and then giving doctors who treated workers’ compensation patients illegal financial incentives to prescribe

First Lady Michelle Obama recently drew on her personal experience as a parent to justify her vastly unpopular intervention into the public school lunch program: Before coming to the White House, I struggled, as a working parent with a traveling, busy husband, to figure out how to feed my kids healthy, and I didn’t get it right.Our pediatrician had to pull me aside and point out some things that were going wrong. I thought to myself, if a Princeton and Harvard educated professional woman doesn’t know how to adequately feed her kids, then what are other parents going through who don’t have

Despite the newest revelation in the Veterans Affairs scandal on Thursday that one in ten veterans have to wait at least one month before they can get an appointment to see a doctor, CBS and NBC refused to cover the latest news in both their evening news shows on Thursday night as well as their morning shows on Friday morning.ABC News only gave 14 seconds of coverage to the issue in a news brief during the 7:00 am hour on Friday’s Good Morning America. CBS News chose to instead publish an article about it on their website Thursday afternoon. [MP3

Chuck Todd on Obama Poll Numbers:
Public Is Saying ‘Your Presidency Is Over’

Discussing a new NBC/Wall Street Journal poll that shows President Barack Obama hitting his lowest foreign policy number in the history of the poll, NBC News White House correspondent Chuck Todd said on Morning Joe Wednesday morning that the poll reflected the public making a damning verdict about Obama’s presidency. “This poll is a disaster for the president,” Todd said. “You look at the presidency here: lowest job rating, tied for the lowest; lowest on foreign policy. His administration is seen as less competent than the Bush administration, post-Katrina.” (Here came some awkwardness, as Nicolle Wallace, former Bush communications director at

Dr. Oz defends ´miracle´ products before
panel of senators who call them a sham

Dr. Oz might as well be a cowardly lion — sent home with his tail between his legs after being accused at a congressional hearing of lying on his show about weight-loss claims. The popular TV doctor thought he was offering expert testimony about bogus medical supplements and get-thin-quick schemes when he showed up at a Senate panel hearing on Tuesday. But the wizard of health was quickly playing defense when lawmakers called him a big, fat liar. “I don’t get why you need to say this stuff, because you know it’s not true,” said Sen. Claire McCaskill, who led the commerce subcommittee

Argentina’s president told a national television audience late Monday that the country would not abide by U.S. court rulings ordering payment of $1.3 billion to disgruntled creditors whose long-running legal battle against the nation received a boost from the U.S. Supreme Court earlier in the day. In a defiant address, President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner called the court orders “extortion.” But she said her country will continue making payments to holders of its restructured debt. “We want to fulfill and honor our debt, and we will do that,” she said, according to Reuters news service. “I ordered the economy ministry

A Canadian TV anchor called out Hillary Clinton for refusing to answer his question about the Keystone pipeline during an interview. “Keystone, yes or no?” the anchor asked Clinton. “Well I can’t say that, because I was there,” Clinton began to reply. “I don’t understand that,” the anchor interjected, “you can talk about so many other things, why can’t you talk about that?” Clinton continued to evade the question, saying, “Because that was a decision that rests with the secretary of state, and my successor is going to have to make that decision one way or the other and so I have said it’s

Ukraine’s acting Foreign Minister Andriy Deshchytsia cut to the chase Sunday when he was overheard calling Russian President and 2005 Super Bowl champion Vladimir Putin a “dickhead.” Deshchytsia was attempted to calm an angry crowd that was attacking the Russian embassy following the downing of a Ukrainian jet by pro-Russia separatist forces, the deadliest incident in the standoff between Ukraine and Russia. “Yes, Putin is a dickhead,” he said, but countered: “We must fulfill our international obligations, including defending the right of Russia to have an embassy in Ukraine.” At the phrase “Putin khuilo,” which roughly translates to “dickhead” among a couple other

Mitt Romney focused his fire on Hillary Clinton Sunday, repeatedly slamming her foreign policy record as “clueless” and predicting she will go down in defeat in 2016 because of it. Clinton has no successes to point from her record as secretary of State, Romney said. Her attempt to reset U.S. policy on Russia had the opposite effect, Romney said, and her recent comments regarding the Obama administration´s release of five Taliban leaders from Guantanamo Bay in exchange for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, were “clueless.”

   

 



 
In S.F., Rick Perry compares
homosexuality to alcoholism
San Francisco Chronicle, by David R. Baker    Original Article
Posted By: Toledo- 6/12/2014 8:21:08 AM     Post Reply
Texas Gov. Rick Perry, speaking in San Francisco on Wednesday night, said the U.S. would better serve its diverse population by letting the states handle many economic and social policies, a point he perhaps inadvertently drove home when he compared homosexuality to alcoholism. Addressing the Commonwealth Club of California, Perry argued the federal government should give up much of its policy-making power, letting states chart their own courses on issues ranging from business subsidies to abortion. He joked about his frequent habit of luring California companies to Texas and called the competition between the two states healthy for both, as well

Elites Beware: Eric Cantor´s Defeat
May Signal a Populist Revolution
National Journal, by Ron Fournier    Original Article
Posted By: Toledo- 6/12/2014 8:17:19 AM     Post Reply
WEST CHESTER, Pa.—Expecting House Majority Leader Eric Cantor to win his GOP primary in Virginia, I spent Election Day in Pennsylvania—interviewing angry Republicans, Democrats, and independents about the rise of political populism. I was in the wrong state, but I had the right topic. Cantor´s defeat has less to do with immigration reform than it does with an uneven movement that should frighten conservative and liberal political elites to their shallow cores. Americans see a grim future for themselves, their children, and their country. They believe their political leaders are selfish, greedy, and short-sighted—unable and/or unwilling to shield most people

I have been listening all week to TV pundits lamenting that Lois Lerner’s hard drive has been destroyed, and therefore her e-mails are lost. This is simply not the case. I never cease to be amazed at the lack of understanding of how the e-mail system works. When you write an e-mail, it goes to your server to be sent to the person you e-mailed. Your server keeps a copy of that e-mail, and of all your e-mails – sent and received. When you create all the folders in your e-mail program that you use to save e-mails in...these are also

It has become a daily frightening occurrence, hearing politicians, commentators, pundits, and stunned Americans say, “That´s outrageous!” “He can´t do that!” “No way!” “It´s against federal law!” “They have no legal authority to force us to do that!” These comments are in response to the daily unprecedented out-of-control tyranny handed down by Obama and his operatives. We are talking arrogance with a capital A coming out of the Obama administration. For example: the GOP was moving too slow in caving to Obama´s amnesty scheme, so Obama said, Heck with it, I´ll bypass everyone and make it happen. Obama sent a

The Obama administration’s claim to have been surprised by the wave of children flooding over out borders may turn out to be another political lie of the year. Sundance of Conservative Treehouse noticed a very peculiar advertisement: On January 29th of this year, the federal government posted an advertisement seeking bids for a vendor contract to handle “Unaccompanied Alien Children“. Not just any contract mind you, but a very specific contract – for a very specific number of unaccompanied minors: 65,000. • Why would DHS and ICE be claiming “surprise” by the current influx of unaccompanied minors on the border

WASHINGTON -- The commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service refused to apologize to Congress for losing e-mails related to its targeting of conservative groups, saying it´s still attempting to recover the data and it´s too soon to know how many e-mails are missing. "I don´t think an apology is owed," Commissioner John Koskinen told the House Ways and Means Committee. "Every e-mail has been preserved that we have." In his most contentious hearing since becoming commissioner six months ago, Koskinen testified about efforts the IRS has made to recover e-mails that were lost when Lois Lerner´s computer hard drive crashed

Fox News host Bill O´Reilly dissed conservative talk radio host and icon Rush Limbaugh at an event in New York City Wednesday evening. According to the Daily Beast, O´Reilly told the audience, “I’m not Rush Limbaugh or Al Franken, where everything has to fit into my worldview… I’m a fact-based guy. A lot of people don’t understand that.” O´Reilly made his remarks about being a "fact-based guy" days after he tried to convince his viewers that House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) did not lose his primary race last week to Dave Brat because of the amnesty issue. O´Reilly conveniently ignored the

President Obama told his Mexican counterpart in a phone call Thursday that immigrants crossing into the U.S. illegally won’t qualify for legalized status or deferred deportation, including children. The White House said Mr. Obama and Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto discussed “a regional strategy” to address the surge of unaccompanied children coming from Central America, through Mexico, to the U.S. With thousands of children trying to enter the U.S. illegally in recent months, Vice President Joseph R. Biden will visit Guatemala on Friday. Mr. Biden will warn officials and parents that illegal immigration is dangerous and that youth won’t be allowed to stay

Call it Paul Ryan’s finest hour. It’s a video of the congressman from Wisconsin confronting the commissioner of Internal Revenue over the missing Lois Lerner emails. It’s easy to see why the clip is going viral on the Web. It is one of those rare moments when Congress loses its temper and a major figure says what the American people are thinking. They don’t believe Commissioner John Koskinen is telling the truth. They don’t believe him. Mr. Koskinen protested. No one believed that either. Mr. Ryan’s ire was triggered by the suggestion of one of the Democrats that Mr. Koskinen

The unfolding sectarian violence in Iraq is just the latest crisis where the Obama administration seemingly has been caught off guard. From the Veterans Affairs scandal to Russia´s swift annexation of Crimea, news of the world somehow keeps taking the commander-in-chief and his team by surprise. The following is a refresher of major domestic and foreign policy developments that, apparently, were news to the White House. 1. Islamist militants gaining in Iraq

The U.S. is leading by example in promoting lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered (LGBT) rights at home and around the world, Secretary of State John Kerry said Thursday. He said the federal government recognizes same-sex marriages of foreign diplomats stationed in the U.S., and it expects all other countries to do the same in their treatment of U.S. personnel deployed abroad. “Let me be clear: We oppose any effort by any country to deny visas for spouses of American staff,” he said. “It’s discriminatory, it’s unacceptable, it has no place in the 21st century.”

That’s what I’ll spend some time talking about on Monday, at the White House Summit on Working Families. We’re bringing together business leaders and workers to talk about the challenges that working parents face every day, and how we can address them together.
