When a reporter’s story hits
the White House wall

Washington Times (D.C), by Tammy Bruce

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 6/27/2014 11:33:41 AM

Lara Logan, Sharyl Attkisson, Judith Miller — all esteemed investigative reporters. Among numerous other awards, Ms. Miller is a Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter. Ms. Logan and Ms. Attkisson have both won numerous Emmys and Edward R. Murrow Awards for their investigative journalism. In other words, they are serious, recognized, accomplished and fearless women who exemplify what it takes to be investigative journalists. They are all women who are under attack. Their crime? They dared to follow stories to their natural conclusions, instead of to a preferred liberal end. None of these women are victims, as they continue to thrive despite liberal

Good piece by Tammy.
I remember when Tammy was a flaming liberal. She was one of the people on TV that I would mute asap. That was a long time ago and what has transpired over the years is her evolution into an Independent Conservative. Not only is she smart, she´s always well prepared on the subject. Now I seek her out. She´s one of my favorites political commentators.

And tell me again who is leading the war on women? And as a side note in all the time I´ve watched Judith Miller on FOX I´ve never even had the thought that she is a liberal. Wonder how she feels being thrown out of the club.

Obama, on Texas Trip, Will
Face Immigration Critics
New York Times, by Jackie Calmes    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 7/9/2014 4:19:03 PM     Post Reply
DENVER — President Obama is traveling to Texas on Wednesday and will come face-to-face with liberal and conservative critics of his government’s handling of a humanitarian crisis on the southern border, including Gov. Rick Perry. Just a day after Mr. Obama asked Congress for nearly $4 billion to address the influx of unaccompanied children, aides continue to say the president will not travel the extra distance to the Texas-Mexico border to see the detention centers where thousands of Central American immigrants have been held. He will, however, attend a previously planned immigration meeting in Dallas, as well as Democratic fund-raisers

A poll conducted by the Wall Street Journal, NBC News, and Annenberg finally gave a numerical answer to a question we at Mediaite often ask ourselves: Out of all political figures that should pipe down just a bit, which one should do it immediately? Answer: Sarah Palin. Overwhelmingly Sarah Palin, says America. 52% of surveyed American adults want Sarah Palin to “be quiet,” according to the poll taken between June 30 and July 7 (Snip) 45% of respondents added that they wanted Jesse Jackson to be quiet, too; followed by Dick Cheney (42%), Newt Gingrich (39%), Al Gore (37%), and

Obama’s immigration implosion
White House Dossier, by Keith Koffler    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 7/9/2014 4:08:56 PM     Post Reply
President Barack Obama is self-righteously grumbling that, having been stymied by Republicans in Congress, he’ll enact immigration reform on his own by voice vote in the West Wing. That is, via executive decree — his go-to method of governing given his crushing lack of success on Capitol Hill. But Obama’s promised executive actions will likely entomb immigration reform, which is already dead for the year, in the great sarcophagus of permanently missed opportunities that houses much of whatever it is Obama wanted to do or should have achieved. The demise of his immigration agenda was predictable because it was killed

In order to comply with federal regulations, the State Board of Education in Tennessee has announced that schools are only allowed to host club bake sales, cook-offs, or any other food-based fundraiser on each campus 30 days per school-year. The board chose this specific number because if a maximum number of days are not set, schools are not allowed to host any food-related fundraisers at all, according to The Tennessean. Administrators across the state are lamenting the effect this will have on school club funds. via The Tennessean: “That means if the Spanish club sells sausage biscuits one morning, that’s

Talk about karma. Costco, a discount chain co-founded by a major Democratic donor, faced the wrath of the almighty dollar after stripping its shelves of Dinesh D’Souza’s bestselling book America: Imagine The World Without Her. According to Newsbusters, after Costco announced that it was dropping D’Souza’s work, the book soared to #1 on Amazon.com. Book reviewers on the website made clear their opinion of the retail giant. Costco I don’t have to shop thee!!! Just saying! Screw Costco …I’ll buy it here. Thanks Amazon !!! Heard about this book being banned by Costco. Read reviews here and was especially befuddled

AFL-CIO urges Obama to circumvent
Congress on immigration
Washington Examiner (DC), by Sean Higgins    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 7/9/2014 1:28:00 PM     Post Reply
Calling them "aspiring American workers," AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka launched a petition Wednesday calling on President Obama to bypass Congress on the current immigration surge and to instead use his executive authority to aid the people flooding the southwestern U.S. border. "Families are being separated because Congress has failed to act on a commonsense immigration process. The crisis on our worksites and in our communities can´t wait. That´s why I´m calling on President Obama to extend administrative relief to Americans in waiting," Trumka said. Obama has said in the past that he is obliged to follow the law and order

Five reasons Obama may not
get his border money
Washington Examiner (DC), by Susan Ferrechio    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 7/9/2014 1:22:20 PM     Post Reply
President Obama is asking Congress for billions to handle a border crisis, but that doesn´t mean he´ll get it. The administration won´t get the $3.7 billion unless Republicans in the House and Senate go along with the request, but there are several reasons that may not happen. Here are five reasons why: Republicans want more of the money to go to deportations. Almost half of Obama´s $3.7 billion request would go to the Department of Health and Human Services to provide aid to the illegal arrivals. But some Republicans want more money to be spent on deportations and beefing up

(Video) When politicians held a townhall to discuss repeal of the gun control measures in the SAFE act, they got a heated speech from war veteran and police officer Aaron Weiss in what has been touted as “probably the best Second Amendment speech ever.” Shortly before closing, Weiss asked the New York politicians a question with an obvious answer that says a lot about gun control advocates.

Fed policy bans asking legal status

Nearly half of all illegal immigrant children don’t show up for their deportation hearings, federal officials testified to Congress on Wednesday, underscoring just how easy it is for those surging across the border right now to disappear into the shadows. The number could be even higher for the current surge of unaccompanied children flooding across the border, who are often released to illegal immigrant parents who have no incentive to bring their children to immigration courts. And federal authorities specifically refuse to ask the legal status of the parents or relatives who come to claim the children, officials acknowledged. “We

President Obama was involved in a mystifying incident when he shook hands with a man in a horse mask while meeting members of the public yesterday. Obama was pictured smiling and shaking hands with the prankster as he went on an unscheduled walkabout in Denver, Colorado. The mask became a popular internet meme a few years ago, when people started wearing the odd headgear in unusual settings and posting the pictures online. Scroll down for video -The reasons for his sartorial choice remained unclear. Obama´s Secret Service agents seemed to keep a close eye on him as he shook hands

No matter what happens in Wednesday´s World Cup semifinal between Argentina and the Netherlands, it will be tough to replace Germany´s 7-1 win over Brazil in the news cycle. The host country is still in shock at the record-setting defeat and it will be interesting to see how inspired the side are for Saturday´s third-place match. The shock of the victory reverberated around the world as Germany quickly raced out to a 5-0 lead 29 minutes into the match. Twitter, as you can imagine, was quite busy with fans around the world reacting to the stunning display. According to Twitter

A disgraced New Orleans politician is going from the Big Easy to the Big House. Former Mayor Ray Nagin was sentenced Wednesday to 10 years in federal prison after being convicted earlier this year on 20 counts of bribery, money laundering, fraud and tax evasion. The two-term mayor, who left office in 2010, was sentenced on the lighter side, said U.S. District Judge Helen Berrigan. The Democrat needs to report to Oakdale Federal Prison — a three hour drive from New Orleans — on Sept. 8.

Sarah Palin on Tuesday joined a growing chorus of Republicans calling for the impeachment of President Obama, writing in a Breitbart op-ed that the influx of young illegal immigrants over the southern border "is the last straw that makes the battered wife say, ´no mas.´ " Mixed/careless metaphors aside, this is nothing but bad news for Republicans — especially four months until the 2014 election. Palin is hardly the first GOP politician to raise the issue of impeachment over the past couple years. Others include Sens. James Inhofe (R-Okla.), Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) and Tim Scott (R-S.C.), Reps.

The White House on Tuesday formally requested $3.7 billion in emergency funding from Congress to deal with an influx of Central American minors along the southern border. But the proposal was quickly met with broad skepticism among Republican lawmakers, who were doubtful that the package would be approved quickly — if at all. Administration officials said the request is part of a comprehensive strategy aimed at building more detention centers, adding immigration judges, and beefing up border patrols and air surveillance. President Obama has said he hopes such steps will both speed deportations and discourage adults from sending children on

He probably doesn’t want me to say that. A hundred times he says he’s not, but Mitt Romney has always accomplished what he has set out to do,”

Enough is enough of the years of abuse from this president. His unsecured border crisis is the last straw that makes the battered wife say, “no mas.” Without borders, there is no nation. Obama knows this. Opening our borders to a flood of illegal immigrants is deliberate. This is his fundamental transformation of America. It’s the only promise he has kept. Discrediting the price paid for America’s exceptionalism over our history, he’s given false hope and taxpayer’s change to millions of foreign nationals who want to sneak into our country illegally. Because of Obama’s purposeful dereliction of duty an untold

WASHINGTON — Congressional Democrats said Tuesday that they had developed legislation to override the Supreme Court decision on contraceptives. The bill would ensure that women have access to coverage for birth control even if they work for businesses that have religious objections. The bill, developed in consultation with the Obama administration, would require for-profit corporations like Hobby Lobby Stores to provide and pay for contraceptive coverage, along with other preventive services, under the Affordable Care Act. The measure could be on the Senate floor as early as next week, Senate Democrats said. “Your health care decisions are not your boss’s

World Net Daily reported, via Free Republic: The retail giant Costco Wholesale has issued an order to remove all copies of Dinesh D’Souza’s bestselling book, “America: Imagine the World Without Her,” from the shelves of its stores nationwide, WND has confirmed. The book, in this midterm election year, is a strong rebuttal of the progressive ideology behind President Obama’s policies, which have been supported by Costco co-founder and director Jim Sinegal, a major Democrat donor and a speaker at the 2012 Democratic National Convention that nominated the president. A Washington Post political reporter has noted Obama’s “romance” with the nation’s

Former secretary of state Hillary Clinton told the German magazine Der Spiegel on Tuesday that she and her husband Bill were ´deeply in debt´ when they left the White House, and blamed ´relentless persecution´ by Republicans for her legal bills after his presidency. The claim has added fuel to the fire Clinton herself touched off last month when she claimed they were ´dead broke´ after their time in the White House. The former first lady earns $200,000 or more every time she makes a public speech. The former president has earned a reported $104 million in speaking fees since he

Mr. D’Souza said roughly 3,600 copies of his newest release has sold at Costco already, but he has no idea why the chain refuses to sell more. “We’re in the process of finding out what’s happening,” he told WND. “I look forward to getting to the bottom of this and continuing the strong relationship my publisher and I have always had with Costco and their millions

Starting next week, House Republicans will launch a highly visible—and likely tumultuous—three-week process of bringing to the floor legislation to authorize their promised lawsuit against President Obama over his use of executive actions. "In theory, you could report out a resolution tomorrow and vote on it," said a House GOP aide on Tuesday. "But that is not the approach [the leaders] want to take." Rather, the aim is to display—if not actually engage in—a more deliberative process, even if amid controversy. This drawn-out script builds toward a potentially dramatic floor vote held just days, or even hours, before the House adjourns on

President Obama evidently has decided not to put a human face on the crisis unfolding at the U.S. southern border—not even his own. The White House said over and over again Monday that Obama will not travel to the border with Mexico despite flying to Texas this week to raise money for Democratic candidates there. It´s certainly in part a political decision, one meant to avoid taking ownership of a difficult issue on which the White House would prefer to share blame. (Snip) In other words, if Obama goes goes to the border, he owns the problem. If he doesn't, he's blasted for a lack of leadership.

The bombardment was confirmed by the Israeli army which said militants had launched ´a few dozen rockets´ within a short period of time.
