At time of austerity, eight
universities spent top dollar
on Hillary Clinton speeches

Washington Post, by Philip Rucker & Rosalind S. Helderman

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 7/2/2014 3:55:30 PM

At least eight universities, including four public institutions, have paid hundreds of thousands of dollars for Hillary Rodham Clinton to speak on their campuses over the past year, sparking a backlash from some student groups and teachers at a time of austerity in higher education. In one previously undisclosed transaction, the University of Connecticut — which just raised tuition by 6.5 percent — paid $251,250 for Clinton to speak on campus in April. Other examples include $300,000 to address UCLA in March and $225,000 for a speech scheduled to occur in October at the University of Nevada at Las Vegas.

From what I have seen of these "speeches", you´ll get more wisdom from your average Chinese fortune cookie.

Hillary and her fawning university supporters have devised a method for circumventing campaign contribution limits.

Political payoffs by any other name. Parents everywhere how does it feel to see your tuition money being laundered to Hillary and Bill.

Education has turned into a big money scam for Democrats.

How much of that money comes from Federally guaranteed student loans that students (or taxpayers) will be saddled with for the rest of their lives?

Working at a Major University i can say confidently that the administrators always have reason and money for those decidedly leftist programs. I remember when Hillary spoke were I work and I was in the audience taking pictures for the University, the sycophants in the audience actually did ooh and aw when hillary hit the primary notes in her speech.

How? Why?
Can´t people see how wrong it is for a candidate to be taking so much money from corrupt universities and corporations? How many other potential 2016 candidates are raking in 6 figures for them or their spouse to give a speech? If there is a smell test then this stinks to high heaven!

Outrageous especially by a public supported university. If it´s a corporation doing this then they are just wasting stockholder money but universities are doing it on the backs of students and their parents.

Colleges passing money to the Clintons are functioning the same way the Rose Law Firm functioned back in the Clinton´s Arkansas days.

Google responds to problems with
searches for Dinesh D´Souza´s ´America´
Fox News, by Hollie McKay    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 7/16/2014 1:58:54 PM     Post Reply
NEW YORK – Conservative filmmaker Dinesh D´Souza wants to know why his latest docudrama "America: Imagine the World Without Her" was buried by mega search engine Google. "I certainly hope this is not intentional. But how long does it take a technical company to fix a technical problem? “D´Souza told FOX411. “We´re trying to be patient, but this is making it harder for people to get accurate information about the film." Here´s the technical problem: When one normally searches the name of a current movie plus the word “movie” in Google, showtimes and more information for the film typically show up. “America”

Poll: 1 in 6 say immigration
is nation´s top problem

Seventeen percent of people in the United States say immigration is the nation’s top problem, according to a Gallup poll released Wednesday. That´s up from 5 percent in June, and is the highest number Gallup has registered for immigration since 2006, when 15 percent said it was the nation´s most pressing problem. Gallup’s new survey found immigration is virtually tied with “dissatisfaction with government” as the nation´s top problem. The economy and unemployment rank below immigration and “dissatisfaction with government" as top problems, the new poll found. Only 8 percent now rate healthcare as the top problem, down from 16 percent in January, when

A Dose of Common Sense for Detroit

The headlines last week were all about the potential windfall: A second appraisal of works in the Detroit Institute of Arts´ collection had come in and the number was several orders of magnitude larger than the first. The city needs a valuation because the museum´s collection is in play under the current municipal bankruptcy proceeding. Back in December, Christie´s had come in with $454 million to $867 million, that low-high figure the equivalent of an auction "estimate" ranging between a number below which a work won´t sell and another representing its likely maximum hammer price.

Your health care: Obama´s
$18,000 broken promise
Fox News, by Gov. Bobby Jindal    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 7/16/2014 11:25:01 AM     Post Reply
How would you feel if someone promised to give you a car, and then reneged on that pledge? That’s how all Americans should feel when it comes to ObamaCare -- because Barack Obama’s failed and discredited campaign promise to lower health insurance premiums has cost the average American family an amount equal to the price of many new cars. During his 2008 campaign, one of then-Senator Obama’s most audacious promises was that his health plan would reduce premiums by $2,500 for the average family. His repeatedly made his pledge on videotape; you can view those promises here. But health insurance premiums

Is The TSA The Most Monstrously
Incompetent Agency In History?
The Federalist, by Daniel Payne    Original Article

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has identified a massive new threat to domestic airline security. No, it’s not ISIS, Al Qaeda, or the Taliban. It’s the dead battery on your smartphone. Last week, TSA announced what it called “enhanced security measures” in which passengers will be required to power up their cell phones before boarding their flight. According to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, TSA has “assesse[d] the global threat environment and reevaluate[d] the measures we take to promote aviation security.” Your cell phone is evidently part of a “global threat environment,” and so it must be turned on in order

Report: Deficit To Soon Skyrocket
To Historic World War II Heights
Daily Caller, by Jonah Bennett    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 7/16/2014 5:26:29 AM     Post Reply
The Congressional Budget Office’s (CBO) latest report says that although the federal deficit this year is the lowest of the Obama era, in the near future, it is expected to skyrocket to World War II heights. The years between 2009 and 2012 saw the largest recorded federal government deficits since 1946, based on percentage of the economy. And although the White House also reported that the deficit this year is the lowest of the Obama administration, there is little reason for celebration. Currently, the amount of federal debt is exactly 74 percent of the economy, and if measures aren’t taken to reign

The media can no longer ignore
Obama and Hillary Clinton´s problems
Washington Examiner [DC], by Noemie Emery    Original Article

It had to come sometime, and it came in one very bad week for the Democrats: that the many big problems with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama finally grew too great for the press to ignore. Obama in his own different way is heading towards Nixon-like levels of weirdness, as, beaten down by the failures regarding his ventures, he appears to have quit his own job. A.B. Stoddard of the Hill says in effect he has stopped being president and chooses to live in a world of his own, shutting out the problems that have become overwhelming, giving dinners where he talks

Jose Antonio Vargas and
the End of Driver’s Licenses
National Review Online, by Jim Geraghty    Original Article

CNN chose to describe the recently detained Jose Antonio Vargas, longtime journalist for U.S. publications and legal citizen of the Philippines, as a “symbol of the immigration debate.” The news network aired his documentary, Undocumented, several times. At the heart of Vargas’s viewpoint — and CNN’s decision to refer to him as a symbol, as opposed to, say, a scofflaw — is the notion that it is unfair to deny citizenship to him, considering his circumstances. Vargas came to the United States from the Philippines when he was 12 and didn’t learn he was in the country illegally until he was

   

 



 
Flow of Central American immigrants
through Mexico shows no signs of slowing
Associated Press, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 7/16/2014 5:07:38 AM     Post Reply
CIUDAD HIDALGO, Mexico – Mexico is promising to stem the flow of Central American migrants to the United States by tightening control at its notoriously porous Guatemalan border. But messages from the country´s top two leaders in little more than a week have provided few details on how. And the scene on the ground is business as usual. Dozens of Central Americans who paid $1.50 a head could be seen this week crossing the broad Suchiate River on improvised rafts of inner tubes and wooden boards, in full view of Mexican police on the shore and immigration agents posted on

Obama AWOL as border crisis worsens

John McCain, an immigration hawk. Who knew? Mr. McCain, the highest-profile Republican of the U.S. Senate’s “Gang of Eight” that came up with amnesty as the solution to the immigration crisis — and it truly is a crisis — is finally taking a hard line against President Obama for his encouraging the tidal wave of illegal aliens swamping the southwestern border. “There has to be a halt to this,” Mr. McCain thundered Sunday on CNN. “That’s what we want, and the best way to do that is for planeloads of these young people to be returning to their country of origin

Bar none. Go ahead, I dare you to read it and not thump your head against the nearest wall. It starts badly enough: Contrary to what those who defend the right to own high-powered assault rifles believe, not all guns are created equal. Due to a combination of availability, portability and criminal usage the following five types of guns are the country’s most dangerous. And then gets worse. The link takes you to the instantly infamous piece in Rolling Stone by some poor lassie named Kristen Gwynne entitled, “The Five Most Dangerous Guns in America.” Now, most normal people reading that might

Millennials´ Political Views
Don´t Make Any Sense
Atlantic, by Derek Thompson    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 7/16/2014 4:45:39 AM     Post Reply
Millennial politics is simple, really. Young people support big government, unless it costs any more money. They´re for smaller government, unless budget cuts scratch a program they´ve heard of. They´d like Washington to fix everything, just so long as it doesn´t run anything. That´s all from a new Reason Foundation poll surveying 2,000 young adults between the ages of 18 and 29. Millennials´ political views are, at best, in a stage of constant metamorphosis and, at worst, "totally incoherent," as Dylan Matthews puts it. It´s not just the Reason Foundation. In March, Pew came out with a similar survey of Millennial attitudes
