White House Refuses to Classify
the Taliban as a Terrorist Group,
Defends Prisoner Swap

Townhall, by Katie Pavlich

As Guy has extensively detailed, over the weekend the Obama administration in partnership with the Defense Department, announced a prison swap of the "Taliban 5" in exchange for POW and alleged deserter Sgt. Bower Bergdahl. Speaking at the White House Monday, Press Secretary Jay Carney refused to classify the Taliban as a terrorist organization when asked about the details of the exchange. "Does the US still regard the Taliban as a terrorist group," CBS News´ Mark Knoller asked Carney directly. "We regard the Taliban as an enemy combatant," Carney said, adding the swap was consistent with U.S. policy and past prisoner of

Of course this White House doesn´t see the Taliban as enemies - they share their hatred of America and Americans. Once you accept that we are being governed by people who would harm us, it all makes sense. And you´ll know what to do to try and change things.

Of course, because they are Islamic fanatics. That would be like calling Omusbro a terorist for being an Islamic fanatic - which he is.

An Islamic terrorist by any other name is still ...

Gee, all of this happens just when Obama is getting out of Dodge--- leaving Carney to handle any tough questions. Of course, soon Jay won´t be around to account for any lies he may have, um, inadvertently told about the so-called prisoner swap.
Or I guess he could just write a book that declares that he won´t participate in a political slugfest and that would be that. Period. End of discussion.

Study: Plants Can ‘Hear’
Their Attackers’ Approach
Time Magazine, by Noah Rayman    Original Article

Some plants can hear and react to enemy caterpillars Some plants can hear caterpillars eating leaves and respond by emitting caterpillar-repelling chemicals, according to a new study published in the journal Oecologia. Scientists have known that certain plants respond to sound vibrations—corn roots, for example, lean toward vibrations of a specific frequency—but until now it hasn’t been clear why they’re able to do so. In this experiment, researchers from University of Missouri exposed one set of plants to a recording of caterpillars eating plants and found they emitted more of the anti-caterpillar chemical and did it more quickly than the plants that

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has taken her book tour abroad. But in an interview with the BBC, when answering a question about how specialness of the special relationship between the U.S. and UK, the nation´s former top diplomat gets the names of the political parties in the UK wrong. The BBC host asked, "So how special is the special relationship?" "It is so special to me, personally, and I think it is very special between our countries," Clinton said.

The incredible burden has been lifted from Jay Carney‘s shoulders now that he is no longer the White House Press Secretary, and in an exit interview with The New York Times Magazine, he opens up about what he thinks of the media’s “shallow” (and in the briefing room, “theatrical”) approach to covering the White House. He reflected on his time as a journalist and how he viewed the profession on the other side of the dais, saying, “I’m proud of a lot of my work. But if I had known then what I know now, I would have succumbed less often

Mark Halperin, the senior political analyst for “Time” magazine, appeared on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” Thursday and boldly reiterated his Wednesday Twitter assertion that Al Gore — the same Al Gore who served as Bill Clinton’s vice president — poses the greatest threat to Hillary Clinton’s White House aspirations. Still, he stopped short of saying Gore would run in the Democratic primary. “I don’t know that Al Gore will run against her, but I do know that of all the other people who’ve talked about running against her, I don’t think anybody has his strengths.

With the crisis in Iraq worsening by the day, a ranking Pentagon official with knowledge of the situation has shed some light on the Obama administration’s inaction in an exclusive statement to The Daily Caller. “The Pentagon is split and the administration is paralyzed,” he said, calling the gridlock “horrendous.” “Joint Chiefs Chairman [Martin] Dempsey is an asshat yes man,” he continued. “We have congressional authority to use force for the Iraq War, as it never expired, but people are putting targeting packets through unnecessary bureaucracy to slow events to the point that — they hope — the situation is overcome by

Berkeley Dispensaries to Provide Free

Medical marijuana dispensaries in Berkeley will likely soon be required to provide free pot to low-income members and homeless people, according to an ordinance approved by the city council on Tuesday. The city is also looking to approve a fourth dispensary, raising the current limit of three locations, as reported by the East Bay Express. The proposed ordinance requires that Berkeley dispensaries give away two percent of the amount of cannabis they sell each year low-income people. And the pot can´t be poor quality either. The proposed city ordinance reads (PDF) that the "medical cannabis provided under this section shall

US Investigations Services LLC — the firm that is accused of defrauding the U.S. government by failing to provide sufficient background checks, including on one particular defense contractor now currently catching up on The Sopranos in Russia — just got a new $190 million contract from the Department of Homeland Security. DHS’ U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services has retained the services of USIS to help run its immigration system. How the hell? Well, federal law requires government agencies go with the lowest bidder, and agencies are only allowed to reject companies for prior malfeasance if they’ve been barred from doing work with

The Vancouver (British Columbia) Board of Education has approved a sweeping new policy for accommodating lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, two-spirit, queer, questioning and “all sexual and gender identities,” including the creation of three pronouns, replacing masculine and feminine with xe, xem and xyr (pronounced ze, zem and zur). Two spirit is an Aboriginal term which means having both feminine and masculine spirits. It´s not limited to gender expression or sexuality, but encompasses them both while incorporating a spiritual element. It´s a standalone identity, not an Aboriginal term for gay lesbian.

Another Reagan landslide
New York Post, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 7/3/2014 11:18:09 AM     Post Reply
Looks like another win for the Gipper. Many news outlets are highlighting a new Quinnipiac Poll in which Barack Obama is ranked the worst president since World War II. Obama now ranks even lower than the man he blames for everything, his predecessor George W. Bush. Not so well reported is that Ronald Reagan is rated the best post-war president. The poll isn’t even close. Reagan polls at double the second-place winner, Bill Clinton, and more than four times JFK. We think we understand why. In foreign policy, Reagan’s “peace through strength” philosophy was derided at the time by liberals as reckless warmongering — but

Just when we thought there couldn’t be any more Democratic donors on Wall Street with money left to channel to the DNC, Michelle Obama is back in town for another “intimate” fund-raiser. Evercore Partners’ Charles Myers is hosting a “round-table discussion” with the first lady at his Midtown home July 10 with tickets from $10,000 to $32,400. Myers e-mailed prospective attendees including Wall Street colleagues, “This will be a small lunch limited to only 20 guests, and therefore an opportunity to have an open conversation with the first lady on a wide range of issues (as well as a personal photo opportunity).” He

This past week, Fox News, Megyn Kelly, and Dinesh D’Souza gave a platform to an entity that hates America and our way of life. Seems the prospect of smokin’ out a snake like Bill Ayers was too good to pass up. Getting an exclusive one-on-one with a crazy, violent communist with a small c was quite a coup for Kelly and D’Souza...or was it? Since lying and deceit generally benefit the liar, we have to ask, ”What was in it for Bill Ayers?” A mea culpa for past crimes? Hardly. After listening to Ayers, we must conclude: once a psychopath, always a psychopath.

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

President Obama’s displeasure with gridlock in Washington — and with the Republicans he blames for it — has been rising for months. This week it has boiled over. From the Rose Garden to the Cabinet Room to near the Key Bridge in Georgetown, the president has signaled more than mere annoyance at the state of affairs at the halfway point of this year. His disdain for congressional Republicans has steadily increased; his disrespect for their tactics has hardened into contempt. With immigration reform dead for this year, if not for the remainder of Obama’s presidency; with House Speaker John A.

The White House is not planning to reassess its strategy for handling thousands of unaccompanied minors streaming across the border amid mass protests. White House press secretary Josh Earnest said he had not spoken to President Obama about protests in California that blocked buses full of immigrant detainees from reaching a processing station. But Earnest said there was no expectation of changing strategies to deal with the flood of minors "at this point.” "At this point, what we´re focused on is making sure that we can ramp up the resources that are necessary to meet this growing need," Earnest said.

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.

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. They, in turn, made her an honorary school counselor.

Recent events have not been kind to Hillary Clinton, but she is far from an innocent victim in what surely is one of the worst revival tours in memory. Hillary Clinton, still unwilling to acknowledge her and her boss’s failure to accurately assess the threats from al-Qaeda and the spread of jihaists into Libya, stubbornly insists we really don’t know why the jihadists attacked and killed our people. Oh, puhleez. While not a supporter of civilian trials for enemy combatants, I must admit there is something satisfying about the prosecution’s version of events laid out for all to see. The New

The United States added a stunning 288,000 jobs last month, sending the unemployment rate down to 6.1 percent and the Dow Jones Industrial Average shooting over 17,000 for the first time. June’s job numbers marked the fifth straight month of job gains over 200,000, the best stretch since the 1990s tech boom. A Bloomberg survey of economists expected an increase of 215,000 jobs in June. The unemployment rate dropped .2 percent to 6.1, the lowest since September 2008. May’s job report was also revised upward, showing 224,000 jobs added. The numbers follow strong reports for the Bay State last month, with

Education: As we predicted, the Obama regime´s anti-suspension policy is backfiring. Los Angeles teachers complain unsuspended violent kids are intimidating them and effectively ruling their classrooms. In 2011, the Education Department accused the Los Angeles Unified School District of discriminating against black boys, who were suspended for bad behavior at a disproportionate rate. The agency ordered it to reduce suspensions in the hopes that unruly minority students would stay in school and graduate. "The district shall develop and implement a comprehensive plan to eliminate the disproportionality in the discipline imposed on African-American students," the five-page decree says. The superintendent agreed
