Hillary’s Mush
National Review Online, by Jim Geraghty

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 6/18/2014 1:04:29 PM

One of the first, and perhaps most stinging, critiques of Hillary Clinton’s book tour came from Game Change co-authors Mark Halperin and John Heilemann, with Halperin lamenting, “I don’t understand writing a book of that length without a message,” and Heilemann calling the book “mush.” We shouldn’t expect much more than mush from Hillary Clinton between now and November 2016. If she’s truly pressed for a theme, expect nothing meatier than “It’s time for a woman.” For one of the most controversial figures in American politics for the past two decades, Hillary Clinton offers strikingly bland rhetoric and proposals, making her memoir

The book is an excuse to get out there and lie more about non existent experience.

So she was the shrew in the Clintoon WH...and the Inept Sec of State and a Senator from NY (qualifications are...breathing).

So what, Big Effin Deal!

Get on your broom and ride away, we don´t need your kind of anything.

As was made clear this morning on Fox, her book now becomes her written record. Her own record. How on earth will she manage when she swerves off its contrived message? You know she will. And smart Republicans will nail her to her own carefully constructed cross.

Since no interviewer (that I know of) has asked her how much of her mushy book she actually wrote, can we assume that when she starts off each interview with "...as I write in my book...." the rest of the interview will also be a lie?

That´s a rhetorical question of course.

Murdoch Reportedly Offered $80 Billion
for Time Warner, Was Turned Down
Mediaite, by Evan McMurry    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 7/16/2014 11:46:35 AM     Post Reply
The rumors that Rupert Murdoch was interested in purchasing Time Warner gained some shape and form Wednesday morning, as the New York Times reported that sources said Murdoch made an $80 billion offer for the TV-cable-film-magazine conglomerate, only to be rebuffed. Fox approached Time Warner in June and offered to pay $85 a share on Time Warner stock; the combined company would be worth about $65 billion in revenue. Per the Times, Murdoch is especially interested in Time Warner’s broadcast rights to sport events like basketball and baseball games, to help grow Fox’s sports footprint. Murdoch’s offer would also have

Issa slams White House over
aide´s defiance of subpoena
Fox News, by Staff    Original Article

The chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee attacked the Obama administration late Tuesday after the White House said a top political aide to the president would defy a subpoena and not appear at a hearing investigating the White House Office of Political Strategy and Outreach. The White House argued that David Simas, the office´s director, is immune from the "extraordinary demand" of being forced to testify before the committee. White House counsel Neil Eggleston said in a letter Tuesday night to Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., that the Simas subpoena "threatens longstanding interests of the executive branch in preserving the

Germany´s plan to take on NSA:
Block eavesdroppers with classical
music, and use typewriters
Telegraph U.K., by Tony Patterson    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 7/16/2014 7:30:06 AM     Post Reply
Politicians in Germany have devised an ingenious solution to combat the threat of eavesdropping by American spies: playing classical music during their meetings. MPs who sit on the spying committee had become so concerned that US agents might listen in to their discussions that they had ordered classical music to be played, to drown out the discussions. On arrival at the meeting, The Suddetusche Zeitung reported that for "security reasons" MPs had to put their mobile phones and computers into a large metal box to ensure that they were not subjected to outside surveillance. "Then the committee chairman, Patrick Sensburg switched the music

Gaza conflict: 100,000 Gazans warned to
leave homes as Israel steps up bombing

Israel escalated its offensive against Hamas on Wednesday, carrying out dozens of air strikes and warning about 100,000 Palestinians to leave their homes in the Gaza Strip by a deadline of 8am. The Israel Defence Forces (IDF) held fire for six hours on Tuesday in accordance with an Egyptian ceasefire plan, but an official statement said that Hamas continued to launch rockets, killing one civilian. “When it was clear that Hamas had no intention of ceasing its fire after it had launched over 75 rockets, the political echelon approved the IDF to resume targeting terror sites across the Gaza Strip,”

Health survey gives government
its first large-scale data
on gay, bisexual population

Less than 3 percent of the U.S. population identify themselves as gay, lesbian or bisexual, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported Tuesday in the first large-scale government survey measuring Americans’ sexual orientation. The National Health Interview Survey, which is the government’s premier tool for annually assessing Americans’ health and behaviors, found that 1.6 percent of adults self-identify as gay or lesbian, and 0.7 percent consider themselves bisexual. The overwhelming majority of adults, 96.6 percent, labeled themselves as straight in the 2013 survey. An additional 1.1 percent declined to answer, responded “I don’t know the answer” or said they were “something

Bowe Bergdahl Has Refused
to Speak to Parents

Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl hasn’t spoken to his family since he was released from captivity in Pakistan, according to an Army official. Sgt. Bergdahl has refused to see his parents or speak to them on the phone, the official said. The decision by Sgt. Bergdahl, who returned to regular duty on Monday, suggests a deeper estrangement between the soldier and his parents than the military understood when he was released. Still, officials said, they don’t know the precise cause of the tension or when it began. Sgt. Bergdahl’s father, Robert Bergdahl, emerged as a fierce advocate for his son during the five years

A new Washington Post-ABC News poll finds widespread public disapproval of the way President Obama and Republicans in Congress are handling the influx of unaccompanied foreign children at the southern border as the two sides engage in a fierce debate over how to stem the crisis. Nearly 6 out of 10 Americans are not happy with Obama’s performance in dealing with the tens of thousands of minors who have arrived from Central America in recent months, overwhelming Border Patrol stations. All told, 58 percent disapprove of his management on the issue, including 54 percent of Latinos

   

 



 
´You Do Not Speak For Us!´
Pro-Palestinian Protesters Crash
NYC Rally For Israel

A pro-Israel rally in New York City was disrupted on Monday by a loud counter-rally for the Palestinian side of the conflict, with both sides straining to have their voices heard over one another at a particularly raucous event on the steps of City Hall. The pro-Palestinian contingent encircled the featured event and chanted in unison. "You do not speak for us!" they shouted. "The occupation has gotta go!" The event, which was organized by Jewish City Council members,

Obama Prepares Pardons for Terrorists

Bill Ayers’ recent appearance on Megyn Kelly’s Fox News program appears to be part of a systematic campaign to whitewash the activities of the communist terrorists who were murdering policemen and FBI agents during the 1960s and 70s, and to set the stage for their release and rehabilitation. Kelly was unprepared for the interview and failed to consult prominent experts on the case, such as former FBI agent Max Noel. “I’m extremely disappointed, as are a number of us who actually worked the WUO [Weather Underground Organization] case on a daily basis, in your attempt to ‘confront him’ without availing yourself

This is why the government should
never control the internet

Tomorrow is the deadline for the public to comment on the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) attempt to regulate the Internet under the seemingly innocuous moniker of “net neutrality.” The architect of this movement, and the man who coined the term “net neutrality,” is Columbia law professor Tim Wu. Unfortunately, he has proved to be immensely influential among regulators. Net neutrality rules have been sold for a decade as a way to keep the Internet “open and free” by keeping Internet service providers (ISPs), such as phone and cable companies, from blocking or degrading Web sites. Its advocates have argued that ISPs

Stephen Hawking joins

Professor Stephen Hawking is backing the academic boycott of Israel by pulling out of a conference hosted by Israeli president Shimon Peres in Jerusalem as a protest at Israel´s treatment of Palestinians. Hawking, 71, the world-renowned theoretical physicist and former Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at the University of Cambridge, had accepted an invitation to headline the fifth annual president´s conference, Facing Tomorrow, in June, which features major international personalities, attracts thousands of participants and this year will celebrate Peres´s 90th birthday. Hawking is in very poor health, but last week he wrote a brief letter to the Israeli president to say he

PART 1: FADING HOPES Three months after its schoolgirls vanished into the clutches of Boko Haram militants, Chibok has become the town that never sleeps. For the mothers of those missing from this dusty northern Nigerian town, nightfall is a time when rest proves impossible, when three hours of fitful dozing is the most one can hope for. And for the fathers, it is a time for round the-clock-vigils, patrolling the edges of town in case of yet more attacks. With Nigerian security forces now belatedly stationed around Chibok, there should be no need for neighbourhood watch duty. Yet two weeks ago,
