Cliven Bundy´s War: Inside the Rancher´s
Independent Sovereign Republic

GQ Magazine, by Zach Baron

I. Warning: The Latrines Are Kinda Full It´s April in the Nevada desert, not even 11 A.M., and the heat is already physical, like something you could lean on. To those not yet accustomed to the republic, like myself, there´s a feeling of unreality to it. Even the view from up here, looking north: blue-green river shading to red-orange mesa shading to gray-red mountain, like a Looney Tunes cartoon. From under the command tent at what some were calling Camp Tripwire and others Camp Liberty, maybe a mile down the road from the Bundy ranch—family home of Cliven Bundy, the rancher whose

I have a feeling this is a hatchet job, so I better not read it at this time and get upset.

Chamber of Commerce to
Endorse Al Franken´s Challenger
National Journal, by Josh Kraushaar    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 8/1/2014 12:29:43 PM     Post Reply
The U.S Chamber of Commerce will be endorsing GOP businessman Mike McFadden in the Minnesota Senate race, the latest sign Republicans view Democratic Sen. Al Franken as increasingly vulnerable. "I´m honored to have their endorsement. They know Minnesota is a state we can win," McFadden said in an interview about the pending endorsement. The endorsement will be formally announced by the chamber Monday at an event in Burnsville, Minn. McFadden has been in Washington meeting with officials at the National Republican Senatorial Committee this week to discuss the state of the campaign. This year, the Chamber of Commerce has been aggressive in backing

Senators spent $1 million
on charter flights last year
USA Today, by Donovan Slack & Paul Singer    Original Article

WASHINGTON — Last summer, Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va., embarked on what his office trumpeted as a four-day, 1,000-mile trip across his state, with press releases noting he "woke up early to hit the road," making stops at a minor league ballpark, a craft brewery and a Roanoke rail yard, among others. But for several hundred of those miles, Warner was not hitting the road — he was flying a chartered plane at a cost to taxpayers of $8,500. Warner was one of two dozen U.S. senators who flew taxpayer-funded charter airplanes to, from or around their home state last year

ObamaCare may be headed
to Supreme Court -- again

President Obama’s federal health care law may be headed to the Supreme Court – again.
The high court has been asked to review a July 22 ruling by the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals that declared constitutional all federal subsidies granted to enrollees of the health care system. The losing plaintiff in the case officially appealed the ruling in a petition Thursday to the Supreme Court.The Fourth Circuit ruling contradicted another announced hours earlier by a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia that ruled the IRS went too far in extending subsidies to those who buy insurance through the federally-run exchange, known as HealthCare.gov. It is likely to take weeks, if not months, to learn if the Justices will even take up the petition. It also is not yet clear how -- or if -- the Obama administration will appeal the first ruling.

House Republicans draft new

House Republican leaders, a day after failing to get a vote on their border crisis bill, are scrambling to piece together a new version before lawmakers break for the August recess -- even though there´s little chance of any bill getting to President Obama´s desk in the near-term. Sources say the Republicans´ new version of the bill adds additional funding for the National Guard and includes additional restrictions aimed at preventing Obama from passing executive orders giving a reprieve to new groups of illegal immigrants. The new measure´s price tag is said to be $694 million, up from $659 million -- but

Obamacare’s ‘Administrative Fix’

When it seems like the Obama administration is getting sued left and right for its implementation of the Affordable Care Act, West Virginia’s attorney general is now suing the administration for one of its last-minute changes to the law. Republican Attorney General Patrick Morrisey filed a complaint Tuesday against the Obama administration for its so-called “administrative fix” issued last November, which punted the responsibility for millions of cancelled health insurance plans to states and private insurance companies. President Barack Obama’s repeated promise that anyone who liked their health care plan could keep it became Politifact’s “lie of the year” when

   

 

  


 
Obama’s friendly fire

How much better if the White House had said nothing, instead of issuing a fuzzy statement Wednesday condemning the shelling of a UN school for Palestinians in Gaza. It matters little that the National Security Council’s spokeswoman, Bernadette Meehan, did not explicitly accuse Israel of the bombing. Or that she went on to condemn those “hiding weapons in UN facilities.” The world understands the game. On the same day the White House issued its condemnation, the UN secretary general was blaming Israel for a “shameful” attack on “sleeping children.” Now, anything suggesting Israel and Hamas operate on the same moral plane is a victory

From the midweek edition of the Morning Jolt: (Snip) Megan McArdle spits hot fury over the news that Mythology Entertainment is making a movie about the Rathergate memo scandal . . . based upon the book of CBS producer Mary Mapes, who contended that the story was true and that those bloggers in pajamas who kept proving it wrong — including, ahem, me — are all mean and liars and right-wing maniacs and so on. Mapes will be played by Cate Blanchett. Robert Redford is playing the man who reported the story on air, CBS News anchor Dan Rather. I’ll give

Does prostitution ‘make more

Turning tricks makes more financial sense than stocking shelves at Walmart. At least, that´s what some current and former members of the sex industry are arguing. In an article for Nerve.com titled “Why Prostitution Can Make More Sense Than Working at Walmart,” author and ex-escort David Henry Sterry says that he was drawn into the world´s oldest profession when he was a broke 17-year-old in Hollywood. Sterry says he was unable to support himself working at a fried chicken restaurant and was told he could make "real money" — $100 an hour — as a rent boy. "Economically, the only reason a person would

OAK RIDGE — It’s OK to talk Southern and work at a national lab — after all. Oak Ridge National Laboratory has cancelled plans for a “Southern Accent Reduction” class because of objections from lab staff members, some of whom said they were offended by the training opportunity. ORNL’s human resources department early last week distributed a registration notice for the six-week course to be taught by Lisa Scott, “a nationally certified speech pathologist and accent reduction trainer.” Here was the pitch to get employees to sign up for the speech rehab program: “Feel confident in a meeting when you need to speak

FRIDAY HARBOR, Wash.—A stiff breeze blows over sun-dappled waves in this pristine vacation spot just south of the U.S. border with Canada. And on that breeze wafts a scent, the starting point for two detectives about to spend a long day trolling the water for elusive evidence. One rides in a kennel. It is a unique partnership: Elizabeth Seely, a 30-year-old wildlife biologist, and a black Lab named Tucker. Ten years ago, Tucker wandered the streets of North Seattle, undernourished, frightened and likely destined to be euthanized as an unwanted pet. Instead, Tucker got lucky. Rescued by a shelter, he was turned over

America´s Poorest Shoppers Are
Putting Discount Stores Out Of Business
Business Insider, by Ashley Lutz    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 7/30/2014 4:53:12 AM     Post Reply
Discount stores are slowly dying. Yesterday, Dollar Tree announced it would buy Family Dollar, a chain that is in the process of closing hundreds of stores and firing workers. Other discount stores have been struggling as well, writes Heidi Moore at The Guardian. Fashion discounter Loehmann´s filed for bankruptcy, while Wal-Mart´s sales have declined for the past five quarters. "There’s just not enough money deployed by American families to keep all the discount chains in business," Moore writes. Dollar stores saw their heyday during the recession, when middle-class shoppers came to buy smaller, cheaper packages of household necessities like toilet paper. While middle-class shoppers have

Alaska’s language challenge: translating tax

Alaska is currently wrestling with a native language challenge: how to translate the state’s longest tax measure for local populations? Due on the public ballot in August, the tax forms and informational pamphlet that accompanies the measure are some 50 pages long - and both documents must be translated into Yup’ik, Inupiak, Siberian Yupik, Koyukon Athabascan and Gwich’in Athabascan - the local dialects in the region. “The ballot measure to repeal the state’s oil tax cut might be the thorniest issue Alaskans ever vote on, but imagine trying to understand terms like ‘gross revenue exclusion’ and ‘progressivity’ in Yup’ik and other

A good friend of mine apologized to me today. You see, he voted for Barack Hussein Obama in the 2008 election and he lives in a so-called “swing state.” He told me that he had not voted for Obama in the 2012 election, but that he realized that by supporting him in 2008, he had help unleash a deadly virus onto the American scene. He simply said he was sorry. I think a good many Americans feel much the same as my good friend. They know that they were seduced by the very slick presentation that Barack Obama made in the

Conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status had their applications denied by IRS bureaucrats who called them names like “crazies,” “rabid” and other words that can’t be printed in a family newspaper. The tax agency is supposed to be run by nonpartisan, career professionals, but the latest set of emails released by the House Ways and Means Committee suggest the agency is anything but. Until the scandal erupted last year, Lois G. Lerner was in charge of the IRS division overseeing tax-exempt organizations. Congressional investigators have spent months sifting through her emails — the ones that didn’t “go missing” — to find out

An independent panel appointed by the Pentagon and Congress said Thursday that President Obama’s strategy for sizing the armed services is too weak for today’s global threats. The National Defense Panel called on the president to dump a major section of his 2014 Quadrennial Defense Review (QDR) and write a broader strategy that requires the military to fight on multiple fronts at once. It also said the shrinking U.S. armed forces, which are being downsized to fit that strategy and budget cuts, is a “serious strategic misstep on the part of the United States.” The forces’ numbers spelled out in Mr. Obama’s

O’Reilly: Why Can’t GOP Rise

Bill O’Reilly obviously doesn’t care for how President Obama and the Democrats are running things, but tonight he also had some tough words for the GOP. He asked guest Kate Obenshain why the Republicans continue to remain in the muck with the left and try to “destroy one another” instead of getting things done. O’Reilly asked, “Shouldn’t they rise above it?” Obenshain argued that it’s Democrats doing all the nasty politicking and name-calling, as well as the ginning up of impeachment. O’Reilly, however, noted some conservatives are bringing it up and said there’s “plenty of hate on both sides.” Obenshain objected, “No,

Perhaps it says something about us that our most interesting presidential candidates swear they won´t run for president. This is true of Sen. Elizabeth Warren, and it´s increasingly true of Mitt Romney. As regular readers of this column know, I´ve never been much of a Romney booster. I´ve also expressed skepticism about the notion he would run again. But let´s not let "a foolish consistency" cloud our judgment. There is reason to believe that a third try wouldn´t be an absurd venture. First, in the intervening years since 2012 — and on a range of issues, not the least of which is

The United Nations slammed Israel for possibly committing war crimes in its fight against Hamas — and then backed that accusation by suggesting the Jewish nation ought to be sharing its Iron Dome defensive technology with the very terror group it’s fighting. U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay said to members of the media at an “emergency” meeting of the U.N. Human Rights Council that Israel was falling short in its duty to protect citizens in the Gaza Strip from getting killed by its rockets. “There is a strong possibility that international law has been violated, in a

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has been traveling to New York in the past month to quietly meet with high-flying business leaders to ramp up interest in a potential presidential bid, sources tell Page Six. “He’s been meeting with groups of up to 15 people at private homes to tell them about some of his moderate points of view,” a source said. “He’s been meeting with Republicans, Democrats and independents.” Our source added, “They’re not fund-raisers. It’s for people here to get to know more about him. He’s said he has not decided whether he’ll run.” We hear that Bush was in town

A top official at the Environmental Protection Agency said Wednesday he is troubled by a lack of trust from Republicans concerning the EPA’s new climate rule and plan to regulate smaller bodies of water. EPA Deputy Administrator Bob Perciasepe said he is trying to “build a bridge” with Republicans. “I can tell you my boss [EPA Administrator] Gina McCarthy would want nothing more than to build credibility with Congress,” Perciasepe said during a hearing at the House Small Business Committee. Perciasepe plans to leave the EPA next month, but before he takes off he has been making the rounds in Congress, offering to

WASHINGTON - The Pentagon called on Israel on Thursday to do more to protect civilian life during its military operations in Gaza, saying the conflict was taking too high a toll on civilians. "The civilian casualties in Gaza have been too high. And it´s become clear that the Israelis need to do more to live up to their very high standards - their very high and very public standards - for protecting civilian life," Pentagon spokesman Colonel Steve Warren said at a news briefing. Gaza officials say more than 1,370 Palestinians, most of them civilians, have been killed in the

Speaker John Boehner´s top immigration aide was at the center of a heated dispute between the speaker and Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) at a closed-door conference meeting Tuesday, according to several people who witnessed the altercation. Gohmert, speaking to the audience of Republican lawmakers during an open mic portion of the meeting, asked Boehner whether Becky Tallent, the speaker´s immigration aide who has drawn fire from immigration hawks, had authored the House GOP bill to address the border crisis scheduled to be voted on Thursday. Boehner rose from his chair and told Gohmert to knock it off, that he was

The book The First Family Detail by best-selling author Robert Kessler purports to tell the behind the scenes secrets of the two most powerful offices in the world as seen by their protection details. Vice-President Biden, claims the book, ´Agents say that, whether at the vice president´s residence or at his home in Delaware, Biden has a habit of swimming in his pool nude,´ Mr Kessler writes. ´Female Secret Service agents find that offensive.´

Over the past two years, the Obama administration has published hundreds and hundreds of rules — on how wheelchairs should be stowed aboard U.S. aircraft, how foreign trade zones should be regulated, how voting assistance should be provided for U.S. citizens overseas, and so on.There’s a problem, however: Technically speaking, these and some 1,800 other regulations shouldn’t be in effect because they weren’t reported to Congress as required. Yet there is little that lawmakers or the courts can do about it. The situation illustrates the obscure, Byzantine process used to create federal regulations — and how easily it can go awry. “It’s
