The New York Times
Sneers At Religion. Again.

The Federalist, by Mollie Hemingway

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 6/11/2014 5:06:23 AM

The New York Times has the weirdest review of a new dating show on television. Admittedly, the show — “It Takes A Church” — itself seems a bit weird. Each week the show visits a congregation and matches up one of its single members with a prospective mate. The first episode travels to the Rock Worship Center in Charlotte, N.C., where 30-year-old Angela laments, “I can’t find a man.” Apparently, she hasn’t been looking very hard, because when the TV cameras come to town one Sunday, bachelors pop up from the congregation like weeds, each accompanied by a “matchmaker” — his

It´s official: Ted Cruz a citizen
of the U.S. - and the U.S. only
CNN, by Saeed Ahmed,    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 6/11/2014 4:43:35 AM     Post Reply
It´s official. Sen. Ted Cruz is now a citizen of the United States -- and the United States only. If you remember, the Texas Republican was born in Canada to an American mother and a Cuban father. As such, he was a dual citizen -- an American because of his mother, and Canadian because the country, like America, grants automatic citizenship to anyone born there. No harm in that, except Cruz is considered a potential candidate for the 2016 GOP presidential nomination. And when the news of his dual citizenship surfaced last year, thanks to a Dallas Morning News piece,

Cochran goes on offensive, calls
McDaniel ´an extremist,´ ´dangerous´

After months of milquetoast statements and letting surrogates do any campaign trash talking, incumbent U.S. Sen. Thad Cochran went on the offensive in Hattiesburg on Tuesday, calling his opponent Chris McDaniel "an extremist" who would hurt Mississippi with indiscriminate cuts to federal spending. He also made his strongest statements to date about McDaniel supporters allegedly sneaking into Cochran´s wife´s nursing home room and taking photos of her for a political hit piece video and about McDaniel campaign. And about an investigation into McDaniel campaigners being found by authorities locked in the Hinds County courthouse in the wee hours of the morning

The Primary That Wasn’t: Lindsey
Graham Wins, Avoids Runoff
ABC News, by Shushannah Walshe    Original Article

Sen. Lindsey Graham has won his Republican primary against his six competitors, and with over 50 percent of the vote has avoided a run-off in the South Carolina senate race, according to the Associated Press. With 77.3 percent of precincts reporting, Graham came in with 57.4 percent and his next competitor was State Senator Lee Bright, who only brought in 15 percent. It’s worth noting that businesswoman Nancy Mace, who was heralded when she entered the race as a possible contender to topple the two-term incumbent, came in fifth with 6.2 percent. Graham’s primary was supposed be a tough race with tea

Republican Congressman Says He
Voted No on a Bill to Get Money

Vance McAllister says he opposed a bill so he could would get a $1,200 contribution from conservative think tank, the Heritage Foundation. The embattled kissing congressman, Rep. Vance McAllister (R-LA), is stirring more controversy in Washington, D.C. after he said he cast a vote with the expectation of receiving money. The married Louisiana Republican is already in hot water after being caught red-handed on video smooching one of his congressional staffers. Although he has defied calls to resign, he doesn’t plan to run for reelection. In a speech last week to Louisiana accountants, McAllister said he voted against a Bureau of Land Management

Hillary Draws Smaller Crowd Than

Hillary Clinton signed books earlier today at a Barnes & Noble in Manhattan. A number of people came out to get their copy of her newly released memoir signed. "There are roughly 380 people in line at Clinton’s first book signing in New York," CNN claimed. The crowd was "similar" in size to the crowds James Franco, Suzanne Collins, and Elizabeth Warren received. But fewer people showed up than when the Jonas Brothers came to the same Barnes & Noble. "A Barnes & Noble spokeswoman said the crowd’s size was not particularly unusual. The actor James Franco, Senator Elizabeth Warren

Benghazi problem worse

Hillary Clinton has a Benghazi problem, and she knows it. She knows that a majority of Americans, according to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll, support the formation of a congressional select committee to investigate the attacks. In spite of Team Hillary’s strategy of casting anyone who is concerned about the deaths of three American servicemen and a U.S. ambassador as a harebrained conspiracy theorist, only 42 percent said they believed the attack has been investigated enough. That same survey showed that only 38 percent of adults approve of how Clinton handled that incident and its aftermath. Clinton’s Benghazi problem is

The Conservative Playbook
Against Hillary Clinton
National Journal, by Emma Roller    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 6/10/2014 4:36:51 PM     Post Reply
Hillary Clinton´s book is out Tuesday, and the media will not stop talking about it despite its lack of revelatory information. In fact, the very lack of news contained in the book is being used as evidence that Hard Choices must be a campaign book—a symbolic token every presidential candidate must offer to constituents in paperback. Another book about Hillary Clinton was also published this week, but this one comes from a super PAC making its case against another Clinton presidency. On Sunday, the conservative America Rising PAC released its own book on the former first lady, senator, and secretary of

Bergdahl could be tried
for AWOL or desertion
USA Today, by Jim Michaels    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 6/10/2014 5:45:20 AM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON — Even after five years of captivity, Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl could still face a lengthy investigation and trial on AWOL or desertion charges if the military concludes that he left his post without authorization before his capture by the Taliban. Abandoning a post in a war zone is rare. "When you go AWOL from the combat theater, that escalates it pretty dramatically," said Bill Gavin of the Center on Conscience and War, an advocacy group. AWOL charges in the United States are more common, and most are disposed of administratively, without convening a court-martial. "It is intolerable in a military unit for

Clinton’s Task: Spin the Unspinnable
Commentary Magazine, by Seth A. Mandel    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 6/10/2014 5:21:00 AM     Post Reply
Hillary Clinton’s memoir, Hard Choices, was apparently assembled “with an assist”–according to New York Times reviewer Michiko Kakutani–from what Clinton calls her “book team.” And if Kakutani’s review is any indication, Clinton’s team was burdened by its task. The book is understood to be Clinton’s campaign manifesto, and the book’s release–officially, tomorrow–is being treated as a campaign launch. Clinton has been dogged by one question in particular: What did she accomplish as secretary of state? She has even been unable to answer the question herself. And though I (like Clinton, presumably) haven’t read her book, early indications are that her book

Sir Isaac Newton instructs us, in the Third Law of Motion, that for every action there is an opposite and equal reaction. It may be another way of saying that without Barack Obama there might not now be a Ted Cruz. The political writers swarmed all around the Texas Republican Party’s recent convention with the tale of how much enthusiasm Cruz aroused there as the party’s prospective answer to Barack Obama and Harry Reid. “I tell you this,” Cruz said at one Republican event, “as good as 2014 is gonna be, 2016 is gonna be even better.” “Something incredible is

   

 



 
Bundy´s Son: Las Vegas
Shooters Kicked off Ranch

The married couple who police say killed three people in Las Vegas, including two officers, had been kicked off a ranch where anti-government protesters faced down federal agents earlier this year, rancher Cliven Bundy´s son said Monday. Ammon Bundy told The Associated Press that Jerad and Amanda Miller were asked to leave his father´s ranch after being there for a few days this spring. He said that while details were still sketchy, the Millers´ conduct was the problem. He called the couple "very radical" and said they did not "align themselves" with the protest´s main issues.

Hillary Clinton, who recently raked in $5 million dollars in speaking fees in 15 months, recounted to Diane Sawyer the sad tale of her former destitution, telling her, “We came out of the White House not only dead broke but in debt.” According to Clinton, she and her husband, who has made over $100 million since leaving the White House, “struggled to, you know, piece together the resources for mortgages for houses, for Chelsea’s education, you know, it was not easy.” But, as Clinton’s story goes, the two hard-working, middle-class millionaires somehow managed to put food on the table in

College professor David Brat knocked off House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R., Va.) Tuesday in the biggest congressional upset in years. Mr. Brat ran an underfunded campaign based in part on Mr. Cantor’s supposed support for comprehensive immigration reform, when Mr. Cantor has for months been seen by immigration reform advocates as the key roadblock to House legislation. Mr. Brat was so unknown that his Wikipedia entry was only two sentences before Tuesday night. Mr. Brat, an economics professor at Randolph-Macon College in Ashland, Va., had support from radio host Laura Ingraham, who hosted a rally with him in a

Texas State Sen. Wendy Davis suggested that the Republican stance on immigration is a racist one, and that conservatives simply don’t like “people who don’t look like them.” “You need look no further than what happened in Arizona with their anti-immigration bill and the withdrawal of tourism and the impact to their economy as a consequence of what ideological thinkers did to that state,” the Democrat said at a Human Rights Campaign PAC fundraiser in Austin, The Daily Caller reported. Miss Davis is running for governor against Republican Attorney General Greg Abbott, who is leading by double digits in most polls.

Accusations of threats and intimidation against whistleblowers are a feature not bug of the scandal factory known as the Obama administration, and according to a columnist from Huffington Post, SwapGate is no different. Huffpo columnist Bill Robinson joined Fox and Friends Monday morning with some exclusive info from a Pentagon official. Robinson said the official wanted the American people to know that there´s a bigger story about the Bergdahl swap that isn´t being told - including the claim that servicemen received threats and intimidation from the White House to keep quiet.

Retailers are starting to push a new trend in menswear: the short suit. The ensemble looks like a regular suit from the waist up, with a sport coat over a button-down shirt and sometimes a tie or bowtie. Instead of trousers, however, the suit´s bottoms are cropped at the knee. J. Crew, Topman, Asos, and Barneys are among the retailers selling the short suit this season. They may be taking cues from fashion icon Pharrell Williams, who donned tuxedo shorts to the Academy Awards earlier this year. "It’s definitely having a moment, particularly with younger guys," Jon Patrick, the creative director at menswear

Since its first introduction into our lexicon, the definition of the word metrosexual has changed several times. At first it was used to describe young, urban males who were more interested in fashion, grooming and appearance than the traditional masculine male. Sexuality ran the gamut from officially gay, straight or bisexual. Then an article in Salon.com by Mark Simpson narrowed it down to the following: "He might be officially gay, straight or bisexual, but this is utterly immaterial because he has clearly taken himself as his own love object and pleasure as his sexual preference." In his book Male Impersonators,

WASHINGTON — Last year, the husband of Iowa Republican state Sen. Joni Ernst, her party’s nominee for Senate made his opinion known about Hillary Clinton on Facebook. “Truly more of a hag now than when she was 1st Lady!” Gail Ernst wrote, sharing a Benghazi-related image. Gail Ernst mostly uses his Facebook page — which is public — to rally supporters to his wife’s Senate bid. Gail Ernst is a prominent surrogate for his wife, making official campaign appearances touted on Joni Ernst’s official campaign Facebook page. He often comments on posts on his wife’s campaign Facebook page from his own.

Ron Fournier reveals that yet another highly placed Democrat has quit on the president. (Snip) That doesn’t mean the Left can’t change. It only signifies that the shift, when it comes, will be no ordinary change of mind. It will be more akin to a Pauline conversion than a matter of fact acknowledgment of a mistake. To non-ideologues being proved wrong is nothing important. You just admit to error and correct yourself. By contrast, because ideology defines the self-importance of ideologues, to confess you’ve been took is a humiliation beyond description. The only thing likely to precipitate such a change

In a stunning upset propelled by tea party activists, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) was defeated in Tuesday’s congressional primary, with insurgent David Brat delivering an unpredicted and devastating loss to the second most powerful Republican in the House who has widely been touted as a future speaker. The race called shortly after 8 p.m. Eastern by the Associated Press. Brat’s victory gives the GOP a volatile outlook for the rest of the campaign season, with the party establishment struggling late Tuesday to grapple with the news and tea party conservatives relishing a surprising win. “This is an earthquake,”
