‘The Law Requires . . .’
PJ Media, by Roger Kimball

Posted By:StormCnter, 6/2/2014 4:51:13 AM

What a quaint phrase! Not quaint for you and me, of course. For us plebs, what the law requires is, well, what the law requires. To the letter, Kemo Sabe. But how about for our masters in Washington, especially for the master-in-chief, Barack Obama? What, exactly, does the law require of him? That he follow and (see Article II of the U.S. Constitution) “faithfully execute” the laws? Not hardly.

Obama’s incredible shrinking Pacific pivot
New York Post, by Benny Avni    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 6/2/2014 4:35:25 AM     Post Reply
President Obama once had a sound foreign-policy concept, an overarching theme with real promise of being remembered as his doctrine. Oh, did you forget about the “pivot to Asia,” a k a “Rebalancing to the Pacific”? Well, so did he. The pivot went unmentioned in Obama’s Wednesday foreign-policy address at West Point. Indeed, he relegated Asia’s biggest fear — the growing military threat China poses to its neighbors — to a sub-clause as he discussed the Senate’s decades-long refusal to ratify an international convention, the Law of the Sea Treaty (derided by opponents as LOST). Oh, yes, folks on Obama’s

You Didn´t Know About Marilyn Monroe

For someone who´s been dead for more than 50 years, Marilyn Monroe continues to make headlines. In October 2013, her cosmetic surgery records surfaced, indicating that she´d had a chin implant and possibly a nose job (those X-rays and medical notes were since sold at auction for $25,600). In addition, Forbes just ranked Monroe as the 2013´s 6th highest-earning dead celebrity (after Michael Jackson, Elvis, Charles M. Schulz, Elizabeth Taylor and Bob Marley). But perhaps most impressively, she was also named the newest face of Chanel No. 5. With what would have been her 88th birthday on June 1, we

Herman Cain says he might

NEW ORLEANS -- Herman Cain, who ended his 2012 presidential campaign amid allegations of multiple affairs, said Saturday that he might run for president again in 2016. Cain, in a speech at the Republican Leadership Conference here, brought up the prospect of another run toward the end of his speech. He then suggested he would do it if he were called by God. “I do not know what the future holds, but I know who holds the future," the Georgia businessman said. "And I trust in God.” Cain, 68, was a brief front-runner for the GOP nomination in 2011 but dropped out, before

125 years after Johnstown flood,
U.S. dams need expensive fix
Los Angeles Times, by Maria L. LaGanga    Original Article

The last Friday in May dawned wet and stayed that way. Merchants in blue-collar Johnstown, Pa., hauled their wares to their buildings’ upper stories to wait out the expected flooding. Families moved furniture and stockpiled supplies. But nothing prepared Johnstown for what happened that afternoon. The South Fork Dam broke, sending millions of tons of water hurtling down the Little Conemaugh River with more violence than Niagara Falls, picking up houses and trees and rocks and bodies as it decimated villages in southwestern Pennsylvania. More than 2,200 men, women and children died that day, making the Johnstown flood of 1889 “the largest

You would think a state with such dire financial problems couldn’t even consider spending such a large sum of tax dollars on something that’s usually built with private money. Luckily, the Illinois House has backed off the idea for the moment. USA Today reported… Illinois shelving $100M gift to Obama library A plan to offer $100 million in tax dollars to lure Barack Obama’s presidential library to Illinois is on the shelf, with lawmakers prepared to wrap up their spring session without advancing the idea. Democrats in the president’s home state pushed the proposal to compete against rival bids from Hawaii and New York.

JOHANNESBURG — A soccer referee named Ibrahim Chaibou walked into a bank in a small South African city carrying a bag filled with as much as $100,000 in $100 bills, according to another referee traveling with him. The deposit was so large that a bank employee gave Mr. Chaibou a gift of commemorative coins bearing the likeness of Nelson Mandela. Later that night in May 2010, Mr. Chaibou refereed an exhibition match between South Africa and Guatemala in preparation for the World Cup, the world’s most popular sporting event. Even to the casual fan, his calls were suspicious — he called

The Economics Of Replacing Obamacare:
The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly
Forbes, by Peter Ferrara    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 6/1/2014 5:11:03 AM     Post Reply
Republicans have not unified behind a single bill to replace Obamacare because conservatives have been debating among themselves exactly what the components of that bill should be. The ongoing collapse of Obamacare, economically and politically, is heightening the stakes in that debate, delaying matters. But the replacement plan now emerging will broaden health coverage at least as much as Obamacare, which teased universal coverage but never delivered. Moreover, the replacement plan would actually reduce health costs (through tried and true market incentives, proven to work in the real world), again which Obamacare promised, but instead produced exactly the opposite. Indeed, the

She fell and hurt her head, but Hillary Clinton’s chutzpah survived intact. In her latest defense of Benghazi, the former secretary of state comes awfully close to making herself the fifth victim. Not to worry — Libyan terrorists aren’t stalking her. It’s those evil Republicans and some in the media who are playing politics with the deadly attack that’s got her claiming to be a target. “I will not be a part of a political slugfest on the backs of dead Americans,” she writes in her new book. “It’s just plain wrong, and it’s unworthy of our great country.

Faithless Execution is about presidential lawlessness. Specifically, my new book, which Encounter Books will release this week, is about how the Framers of our Constitution fully anticipated that a president could fail to honor his core duty to execute the laws faithfully — could fail to meet his basic fiduciary obligations to the American people. Viewing the Obama presidFaithless Execution argues that we are experiencing a different kind of presidential lawlessness than our nation has ever known: a systematic undermining of our governing framework, willfully carried out by a president who made no secret

Make Them Bake Cake!

The Colorado’s Civil Rights Commission has ordered a suburban Denver baker named Jack Phillips to make wedding cakes for same-sex couples, finding that his religious objections do not supersede the state’s anti-discrimination statutes. Because if the Constitution should be subordinate to anything it’s the local thought police and nuptial pastries. Raju Jaram, one of the reprehensible commissioners– whose contact information is nowhere to found on Colorado’s government site – apparently said: “I can believe anything I want, but if I’m going to do business here, I’d ought to not discriminate against people.” No, you can’t. Because Jack Phillips isn’t discriminating against gay

Most of us take graduating from high school for granted. For others, it’s a challenge beyond anything we’ve ever experienced. One of those people is Katherine Clark of Columbia Station, Ohio: she was born with cerebral palsy and is considered a quadriplegic. Katherine not only graduated from high school Friday, she walked across the stage to receive her diploma. In addition to completing all of her coursework on time, Katherine sang in the choir, and competed in the Special Olympics and 4H. Throughout her young life, Katherine’s dad Vince always carried his “little girl” everywhere she went. Following his death in 2007,

If one sets out to destroy the core pillars of a society, to incrementally break down the values of a country, and to dishearten its inhabitants, then Barack Hussein Obama has been a sterling success. He is no amateur; he is not a feckless individual who doesn´t know what he is doing. His actions are deliberate, and his goals are in direct opposition to the vast majority of the American people.

Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, the last known American POW, was freed after five years in captivity — an ordeal that began and ended in Afghanistan under a shroud of mystery. The Taliban turned over Bergdahl Saturday morning to US special forces in exchange for five notorious Islamic militants who had been held at Guantanamo Bay and will be sent to Qatar, where they will stay for a year under the terms of the trade. At least one of the prisoners, ranking Taliban leader Khairullah Khairkhwa, had direct ties to Osama bin Laden. Bergdahl was picked up by helicopter in western Afghanistan, near the Pakistan border.

Day 1,956 of his presidency was not too kind to President Obama. Having to announce within a four-hour span that he had lost both an embattled Cabinet secretary and his chief spokesman, Obama looked Friday like a man gamely trying to get a stalled administration back on track.He entered the week still stuck with low approval ratings and facing fierce criticism of his policies both at home and abroad. On Wednesday, he tried to chart a new course internationally with a West Point speech setting out a new foreign policy. On Thursday, he dealt with widespread criticism of the speech.

WASHINGTON — Feeling the weight of the world on his shoulders, a weary President Obama says his fondest dream is getting a chance to take a stroll by himself away from the White House. Obama — who rides in motorcades, jets on Air Force One and is under constant guard — says he’d take a solo hike across the National Mall, if only the Secret Service would give him the chance. “I would go take a walk,” the president said Friday on “Live with Kelly and Michael” when asked the one thing he’d like to do if only he could. “I would just

Is the end near? Scientists at Duke University say the world is on the brink of its sixth great extinction, since certain species of plants and animals are now dying out at least 1,000 times faster than they did before humans came into existence. The study, published Thursday in the journal Science, measured the the rate at which species are disappearing from Earth. In 1995, the researchers found that the pre-human rate of extinctions was roughly 1. Now, that rate is about 100 to 1,000. Stuart Pimm, the study's lead author, said habitat loss is mostly to blame for the increasing death rates. As humans continue to alter and destroy more land,

President Obama's weekly remarks Hi, everybody. I’m here at Children’s National Medical Center in Washington, D.C., visiting with some kids being treated here all the time for asthma and other breathing problems. Often, these illnesses are aggravated by air pollution — pollution from the same sources that release carbon and contribute to climate change. And for the sake of all our kids, we’ve got to do more to reduce it.

When one thinks of mass murder, Hitler comes to mind. If not Hitler, then Tojo, Stalin, or Mao. Credit is given to the 20th-century totalitarians as the worst species of tyranny to have ever arisen. However, the alarming truth is that Islam has killed more than any of these, and may surpass all of them combined in numbers and cruelty. The enormity of the slaughters of the "religion of peace" are so far beyond comprehension that even honest historians overlook the scale. When one looks beyond our myopic focus, Islam is the greatest killing machine in the history of mankind,

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel arrived in Afghanistan Sunday, one day after the White House announced that it had secured the release of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, America´s only prisoner of war in Afghanistan, and four days after President Obama announced a drawdown of U.S. forces that would leave fewer than 1,000 troops in the country by the end of 2016. Hagel defended the Pentagon from criticism for not giving Congress a 30-day notice of the exchange of five detainees from the prison camp at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba for Bergdahl by saying that officials believed that the soldier´s life was in danger.

On May 31, a scandal-ridden Barack Obama announced the Taliban had released Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl after five years of captivity. His release follows negotiations in which the Obama administration agreed to trade five prisoners from Guantanamo Bay for Bergdahl. Author Brad Thor tweeted a number of responses to this act of negotiating with terrorists, including his assessment that Americans are now vulnerable because terrorists see they can get what they want from the Obama administration.
