Obama´s Troublesome Congress
Wall Street Journal, by Daniel Henninger

Original Article

Posted By:garnet, 7/3/2014 10:13:54 AM

Will no one rid me of this troublesome priest?—King Henry II. The President of the United States went to Minneapolis the other day, where he gave a speech complaining about Republicans in Congress who stand in the way of what he wants to do. This excerpt is from the White House website: "And, now, some of you may have read—so we take these actions and then now Republicans are mad at me for taking these actions. They´re not doing anything, and then they´re mad that I´m doing something. I´m not sure which of the things I´ve done they find most offensive, but

Without that teleprompter, his level of speech is strictly middle school

Late at night when Reggie´s not around I picture him wandering the halls of the W.H. Ranting about his many enemies like some degenerate drunk Roman emperor.

What British King sent Parliament home?
Oh, yes, Charles I.
He lost his head.
Brought Oliver Cromwell and the Puritans.
Oh, well.
The inability to remember history means the strong likelihood of repeating it.

I wish some conservative would make the supreme sacrifice and attend every one of 0bama´s speeches, just to heckle him...when Duh Wun says the Republicans "aren´t doing "anything" the heckler would shout out "# (how many) House bills Dingy Harry Reid won´t even allow a vote" in the Senate.

The Emperor is upset.

Even Steve Israel, head of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, was on the news objecting to the placement of the "immigrant children" at the former Grumman plant in his district on LI. Only Israel´s complaint was that it wasn´t safe for the children.

Obamacare Isn’t Going Away
As a Campaign Issue
American Spectator, by David Catron    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 8/25/2014 7:04:34 AM     Post Reply
In an obvious attempt to help the Democrats preserve their Senate majority, the “reporters” of the legacy news media have been hard at work promoting a new Obamacare meme. The Los Angeles Times assisted in the launch of this propaganda campaign early this month with a piece titled, “Obamacare loses some of its campaign punch for Republicans.” (snip) The voters didn’t get that memo. They revile the health care law more than ever. Even the left-leaning Huffington Post admits, “A majority of Americans disapprove of Obamacare, the highest share since President Barack Obama´s health care reforms became law

Optimism: The GOP’s missing ingredient
New York Post, by Seth Lipsky    Original Article

The thing to remember about the cataract of woe that has befallen our country is how fast things can be turned around. We may be in retreat overseas, with riots simmering in Missouri and the economy stuck in second gear. With the right policies, the right leadership, all that can be overcome. It can be turned around, and fast — a fact we’re not hearing pointedly enough for my taste. I like Rick Perry, Rand Paul, Paul Ryan, Ted Cruz, Mitt Romney, Marco Rubio. But none of the GOP contenders is capturing this simple point — that we can pull out of this

Poll: Brown Pulls Nearly Even
With Shaheen in N.H.

Scott Brown is back in the ballgame. The former Massachusetts senator had appeared to be fading in his bid to defeat incumbent Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen in New Hampshire, but a new poll shows that the race is now up for grabs. In the WMUR/UNH survey released Thursday night, Shaheen led Brown by 46 percent to 44 percent, which is within the poll’s margin of error of plus or minus 3.4 percentage points. This latest numbers show a dramatic swing in Brown’s direction from the previous WMUR/UNH poll, which was conducted a month-and-a-half earlier and showed Shaheen leading Brown by

Chris Christie, Scott Walker and Rick Perry are all positioning themselves to enter the 2016 presidential race as top-tier candidates for the Republican nomination. But before concerning themselves in earnest with becoming the next GOP standard-bearer, these three governors must contend with a shared, and unpleasant, distinction: Each man, or his administration, faces accusations of legal wrongdoing. For months, Christie has been trying to move beyond investigations into a decision by members of his administration to close traffic lanes on the George Washington Bridge last September in an apparent act of political revenge. Meanwhile, Walker has faced down an inquiry

Loss for Democrats in Midterm Elections
Could Be Boon for Clinton
New York Times, by John Harwood    Original Article

WASHINGTON — President Obama’s international woes give his former secretary of state good reason to seek political distance. Hillary Rodham Clinton’s recent foreign policy criticisms made that clear. Domestically, their interests diverge in a different way. A Republican takeover of the Senate this fall would hurt Mr. Obama for the final two years of his presidency, but it might help Mrs. Clinton if she runs to succeed him. Republican control of both the House and Senate would provide Mrs. Clinton a clearer target to run against in courting voters fatigued by Washington dysfunction. The longer an unpopular president and his more-unpopular partisan

After several days off, I thought I might come back with a different perspective on our politics than what I had developed earlier in the summer. Perhaps things weren’t as bad for the Democrats as they seemed. Perhaps things were about to turn around for President Obama and his allies. Well, with 11 weeks to go until the 2014 midterm elections, nothing suggests that the Democrats have reached the bottom of the political trough they are in.The calamities, distractions and scandals we’ve seen during the Obama administration all come in such rapid succession that the half-life of any one is

The Race to be Wrong in Ferguson
Los Angeles Times, by Jonah Goldberg    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 8/20/2014 9:14:21 AM     Post Reply
The events in Ferguson, Missouri, have launched a familiar spectacle: the race to be wrong first. Michael Brown, an 18-year-old African-American man, was shot by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson. The Washington Post had more on the story about what one witness called an “execution-style slaying”: “Lawyer Freeman Bosley Jr. said Dorian Johnson, a friend of Brown’s, has told the FBI that Officer Darren Wilson confronted the two because they were walking in the middle of the street. “Wilson cursed at the pair and ordered them onto the sidewalk, Bosley told The Washington Post. When they refused to comply, he said, the officer

Hillary is inevitable no longer

Hillary Clinton is no longer the inevitable next President of the United States, a summertime development that is not unexpected yet still surprises. Now the question is: Who will be the first to mount a challenge? Two potential challengers (although both deny they’ll run) hail from right here: liberal firebrand and US senator Elizabeth Warren and our cool and collected governor, Deval Patrick. The interest they’ve attracted is evidence of Massachusetts’ continuing influence in national affairs. Indeed, even though he keeps saying no, there might be a third Bay State contender in the wings: 2012’s loser, Mitt Romney. After all, Hillary’s problems

Lehmberg Democrats Drunk On
Their Own Power
American Spectator, by Scott McKay    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 8/19/2014 9:18:59 AM     Post Reply
You might not have seen the arrest or jailhouse videos from Rosemary Lehmberg’s DWI episode when it happened in the spring of 2013, but there’s a good chance you saw them over the weekend. If you still haven’t, we can fix that by having you click here and here. That Lehmberg, district attorney for Travis County, Texas, isn’t at least as famous as Toronto´s crack-smoking mayor Rob Ford is no surprise. Given how sloppy and belligerent she was during the arrest, not to mention her staggering blood-alcohol level of .239 (three times the legal limit), it is a bit odd

According to the New York Times’ Peter Baker, “In this summer of global tumult, the debate in Washington essentially boils down to two opposite positions: It is all President Obama’s fault, according to his critics; no, it is not, according to his supporters, because these are events beyond his control.” Mr. Baker entirely misses the point. The global tumult is, largely, Mr. Obama’s fault because he has so drastically reduced America’s influence that events are beyond his control. That has become so obvious that even Hillary Clinton understands. President Obama is extremely sensitive to criticism of his foreign policy, as one would

The Partisan Farce to
Get Rick Perry
Bloomberg, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 8/18/2014 9:25:52 AM     Post Reply
Rosemary Lehmberg, the Democratic district attorney in Travis County, Texas, spent three weeks in jail last year for drunken driving, prompting Republican Governor Rick Perry to call on her to resign. She refused -- and now her supporters hope to have the last laugh by sending Perry away for a lot longer. The criminal case against him is a farce and should be dismissed faster than prairie fire with a tail wind. Lehmberg’s run-in with the law drew public attention not only because she had an open bottle of vodka in her car and a blood-alcohol level three times the legal

Calculating Hillary Gets the Math Wrong

Picture the ad, either in the Democratic primaries or from a liberal independent candidate: Hillary Clinton -- a pro-Wall Street buckraker, a foreign policy interventionist -- championing George W. Bush´s invasion of Iraq and looking like a lukewarm supporter of President Barack Obama. Clinton´s break last week with some of Obama´s unpopular foreign policies, in an interview with my colleague Jeffrey Goldberg in the Atlantic, is going to cause her political problems. It makes her look calculating -- probably unfairly -- when she already faces some skepticism about her authenticity. And her hawkish, interventionist stance is at odds with the

A Justice Department official admitted that former IRS official Lois Lerner’s apparently missing emails actually exist on a backup server, but the government doesn’t plan to retrieve them. , “A Department of Justice attorney told a Judicial Watch attorney on Friday that it turns out the federal government backs up all computer records in case something terrible happens in Washington and there’s a catastrophe, so the government can continue operating,” Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton told Fox News’ Shannon Bream. “But it would be too hard to go get lois lerner’s emails from that backup system,” Fitton continued, paraphrasing the DOJ official.

The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff has said that he would not recommend U.S. military airstrikes against Islamic State militants in Syria until he determines that they have become a direct threat to the U.S. Gen. Martin Dempsey, speaking to reporters on board a military plane traveling to Afghanistan, said Sunday that he believes the Sunni insurgent group formerly known as ISIS is more of a regional threat and is not currently plotting or planning attacks against the U.S. or Europe. ISIS has repeatedly made threats to attack the U.S. through social and conventional media. Earlier this month, in a

Democrat Michelle Nunn is running ahead of David Perdue in the race for the U.S. Senate in Georgia. The WSB-TV poll found that Mrs. Nunn has 47 percent to 40 percent edge over Mr. Perdue. The libertarian candidate, Amanda Swafford, received 3 percent, and 10 percent of the respondents were undecided. The winner of the race will replace retiring Sen. Saxby Chambliss. Mrs. Nunn, the daughter of former Georgia Sen. Sam Nunn, is seen as one of Democrats best bets to flip control of a GOP-held seat. Republicans need to flip six seats to win back the Senate.

American black people are being lied to and the lies destroy them. They are being lied to by corrupt people like Attorney General Eric Holder and Al Sharpton Jr. and Jesse Jackson and the leftists in our news media. They are being told that their poverty is due to prejudice and that the police are targeting them out of bigotry. They are being told that the dreadful existence of slum life grew out of slavery and is being perpetuated by hatred. None of this is true. Poor black people are poor because they have no family structure and get little education.

The White House is bristling at suggestions President Obama is disconnected, checked out or out of touch. White House allies maintain that the storyline of a checked-out president is a myth drummed up by the media during the summer doldrums. “It’s bullshit,” said one former senior administration official. “This is a guy who reads 10 letters a day simply to keep in touch with the American people. He spends all his time thinking about the economy and improving lives of the American people. He’s constantly in touch.” Obama has been criticized as out of touch by critics and supporters, with the subject

Our AJC colleague Nicholas Fouriezos passes along the following dispatch: The racial unrest caused by tensions over the shooting of black teenager Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., could be a rallying cry for Democratic get-out-the-vote efforts, according to the voter education committee chair for the Democratic Southern caucus. “There is a story beneath the story in Ferguson,” chairwoman Janet May said at the Southern Caucus meeting during the Democratic National Convention in Atlanta on Friday. May ran through the stats of the 21,000-person Missouri town: 13,000 black citizens, about 7,000 white. Five city council members– one of whom was black.

FERGUSON, Mo. — It was 1 a.m. and Michael Brown Jr. called his father, his voice trembling. He had seen something overpowering. In the thick gray clouds that lingered from a passing storm this past June, he made out an angel. And he saw Satan chasing the angel and the angel running into the face of God. Mr. Brown was a prankster, so his father and stepmother chuckled at first. “No, no, Dad! No!” the elder Mr. Brown remembered his son protesting. “I’m serious.” And the black teenager from this suburb of St. Louis, who had just graduated from high

When a federal appeals court ruled last month that a seemingly arcane wording flaw in the Affordable Care Act should invalidate a central part of the law, many of those who drafted the statute five years ago reacted with shock and anger. In 2009, they had spent months piecing together a compromise that sought to create a national system of subsidized insurance — but one run by the states. Now, they fear their work could be undone by what some call a "drafting error" and others portray as a political miscalculation. The judges from the U.S. Court of Appeals for

Amid the hysteria over the shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., it might be lost that most black and white Americans believe they’re not out to get each other. A new Pew Research survey shows that 75 percent of whites and 64 percent of blacks say their groups get along together “pretty well” if not “very well.” It’s a bleaker view for Hispanics, 53 percent of whom say the same. Ferguson fell into the national media spotlight on Aug. 9 when Brown, who was unarmed and black,” was shot dead by Darren Wilson, a white police officer. A St. Louis grand jury is currently deliberating whether to charge Wilson of a crime.

Ogletree, a renowned legal scholar who taught President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama during their time in Cambridge, described the state of affairs following Brown’s funeral as being “just like the assassination of” Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in 1968. “This reminds us of exactly what happened years ago when I was a young kid to the great man Emmett Till,
