In retaliation against recent U.S. and European Union sanctions, Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday ordered his government to identify foreign goods from countries that have imposed sanctions that will be banned from Russia for one year. Affected countries include the United States, all E.U. member states, Canada, Australia, and Japan. Over time, the ban could hurt some American companies with Russian trade ties. For example, when Russia banned all U.S. poultry imports for nine months in 2010, U.S. chicken producers lost an estimated $400 billion in Russian sales. But the restrictions will likely be felt first and most by

Watching Justin Amash´s amazingly

(Video) Rep. Justin Amash went legend last night, telling his vanquished primary challenger that "I ran for Congress to stop people like you." The Michigan Republican survived a brutal race against Brian Ellis that featured moments like Devin Nunes, R-Calif., calling Amash "al Qaeda´s best friend in Congress" and a local lawyer describing Amash as "among the most anti-Israel members of Congress." Amash also drew the ire of the Chamber of Commerce for seeking to end the Export-Import Bank. His entire rant is worth viewing. If you think it´s bad to be mean to an opponent in a victory speech,

On Wednesday, Actor Rob Lowe took to Twitter to criticize Barack Obama’s failed foreign policies. Waiting for the President to deliver a speech at the U.S. Africa Leaders Summit, the irritated star of NBC’s Parks and Recreation demanded the President explain how the world literally fell apart on his watch: (Tweet) Of course this isn´t the first time Lowe has gone against the grain in liberal Hollywood. Back in November of 2013, as reported by MRC´s Kyle Drennen, he told NBC´s David Gregory: “Just my own world view is that the individual needs to be more responsible for their own lives

Barack Obama´s Ivy-League educated half-brother is publishing his autobiography next month, painting a dramatically different picture of their few meetings from the one the president related in his best-selling ´Dreams from My Father´ memoir. Mark Obama Ndesandjo includes an appendix in his book, cataloguing what he says are factual errors in ´Dreams´ – including words falsely attributed to his mother, a Jewish woman named Ruth. ´A lot of the stuff that Barack wrote is wrong in that book, and I can understand that,´ he told the Associated Press last year when he planned to self-publish his book. ´To me,´ Ndesandjo

Biden calls for help with border:

Vice President Joseph R. Biden appealed to legal scholars and immigration advocates Wednesday to provide legal representation for thousands of illegal immigrant children in the U.S., saying the administration’s effort to handle a new surge of deportation cases “is going to be really hard.” “We need lawyers,” Mr. Biden said in a meeting at the White House. “This is going to be really hard. It was hard before. But this backlog [of cases] has continued to pile up.” About half of the more than 50,000 children from Central America who have immigrated illegally to the U.S. since last fall don’t

The president, vice president and a former State Department official with the Obama administration took advantage of the U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit this week in Washington, D.C., as an opportunity to advance the homosexual rights agenda. “Despite the focus and emphasis on these issues, the United States has remained committed to its principles of strengthening and promoting democratic institutions, encouraging good governance and accountability and also promoting good human rights, including respect for the LBG [lesbian, bisexual, gay] communities across Africa,” Johnnie Carson, former assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs under Hillary Clinton and senior adviser at the U.S. Institute

It doesn´t get much more cool and easy breezy than FLOTUS in a topknot. Seriously, if you looked up "summertime" in the dictionary, you´d see this picture of Michelle Obama in a bright yellow sundress and a chic updo. The first fady looked positively radiant in a gorgeous neon yellow chiffon dress by Prabal Gurung during the United States-Africa summit dinner Tuesday night. Obama is a known fan of the Nepalese designer, and we adore this vibrant and effortless look on her. She also often favors bright, bold colors—and this shade of electric lemon yellow? Perfection.

Democrats throw kitchen sink at
Republicans ahead of midterms
The Hill (Washington DC), by Mike Lillis    Original Article

Democrats are throwing the kitchen sink at Republicans in a bid to keep the Senate and erode the GOP’s House majority in November’s elections. While the Democrats’ official campaign strategy focuses wholly on the economy, education and women’s rights, party leaders have charged into the August recess with a much broader message that paints Republicans as too tough on immigrants, too easy on corporate election donors and too focused on toppling President Obama in lieu of helping the middle class. The wider emphasis could pay dividends in November’s midterms, as the Democrats are highlighting issues that tend to poll strongly

The “Hard Choices” book tour drags on. Last night, author and former secretary of state Hillary Rodham Clinton walked onto the set of “The Colbert Report.” In what was presented as a surprise visit, she appeared just as Colbert was fake-denouncing various passages of “Hard Choices.” “This book is 656 pages of shameless name-dropping,” ripped the host, highlighting a sentence in which Clinton talks about hanging out with Tanzanian Prime Minister Mizengo Pinda. After highlighting other such moments in the book, Colbert asked, “There is no way on earth one woman can be in so many places at once.” At

Media bias in the Christie
and Cuomo scandals
American Thinker, by Thomas Lifson    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 8/6/2014 1:29:19 PM     Post Reply
If you are going to have a scandal, it really, really helps to be a Democrat if you are worried about media coverage. Consider the cases of neighboring big state governors Chris Christie and Andrew Cuomo. Christie’s “Bridgegate” scandal was a tale of political revenge involving the placement of orange traffic cones. Cuomo’s “Morelandgate” scandal is about a governor shutting down an investigation into political corruption (by the Moreland Commission) when it started getting close to home. Let’s see: which is worse: snarling traffic or covering up potential corruption? From the media response, you’d think traffic cones are vastly more

The irony is thick with this one. A government audit has found that a website dedicated to making federal spending "more transparent" can´t find $619 billion. USA Today: And the data that does exist is wildly inaccurate, according to the Government Accountability Office, which looked at 2012 spending data. Only 2% to 7% of spending data on USASpending.gov is "fully consistent with agencies´ records," according to the report. Among the data missing from the 6-year-old federal website: The Department of Health and Human Services failed to report nearly $544 billion, mostly in direct assistance programs like Medicare. The department admitted

ATLANTA — In the early 2000s, a young researcher at the Centers for Disease Control named Greg Millett set out to solve an epidemiological mystery. Nobody could explain why black Americans, particularly black gay men, had such high rates of HIV infection compared to the rest of the population. How were they putting themselves in so much danger? What were they doing differently from everyone else? Millett began with a survey of the published research, but that only seemed to raise more questions. Study after study seemed to arrive at the same conclusion: Black gay men take fewer risks in the

Sen. Pat Roberts fended off an aggressive challenger Tuesday in the Kansas Republican primary, dealing another blow to a national tea party movement that has targeted longtime Washington incumbents. Milton Wolf, 43, a Leawood radiologist making his first run for public office, failed to pull the upset in the race against Roberts, 78, whose political dates to the late 1960s, when he was a congressional aide. After surviving the primary, Roberts is a huge favorite to win his fourth, six-year term in November. Republicans enjoy a nearly 20 percentage-point advantage among registered voters and have won every U.S. Senate race

President Obama returned from his full-time job as the Democratic Party’s fundraiser-in-chief to host today’s U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit. As he winged his way back to Washington from Kansas City aboard Air Force One, the president sat for an interview with editors of The Economist. The interview was pure Barack Obama, and it revealed him for what he is — an intellectually agile partisan fantasist. According to Mr. Obama, there really haven’t been that many problems, but those we may be experiencing are the fault not of his policies or leadership, but of the fact that he continues to have to contend

Once upon a time an American family’s home was their castle and the bigger the better, but growing concerns about meeting mortgage payments and the environmental impact of large houses has helped fuel a new movement of people who are happy to live small. The Tiny House Movement is a growing group of people who are happy to downsize the space that they live in and enjoy simplified lives as a result. While the average American home is around 2600 square feet, the typical small or tiny house is around 100-400 square feet. Scroll down for video -Large homes come

Obamacare plans have shrunk payments to physicians so much that some doctors say they won’t be able to afford to accept Obamacare coverage, NPR reports. Many of the eight million sign-ups in Obamacare exchanges nationwide already face more limited choices for physicians and hospitals than those in the private insurance market. But with low physician reimbursement rates, the problem could get even worse. For a typical quick patient visit, Dr. Doug Gerard, a Connecticut internist, told NPR a private insurer would pay $100 while Medicare would pay around $80. But Obamacare plans are more likely to pay closer to $80, which Gerard

I have been waiting intently for that catalogue of much vaunted accomplishments which Islam has bequeathed both to America and the world — benefits that have been chirped about ad nauseum by Barack Obama for years. But since this, like all his other promises, has been left dangling, I have decided to compile my own list for you and take the pressure off his wearied brow that best serves America on the links. I assure you that this list is far less than exhaustive: 1. Hummus. I hate hummus. 2. Design modifications to the Twin Towers. 3. Animal husbandry (literally)

"They realise that it´s been seen by a lot of people and that there´s some sensitivity to treatment of wildlife."

First Lady Michelle Obama shared some thoughts about women versus men during a conversation with former First Lady Laura Bush at the U.S Africa Leaders Summit in Washington D.C. Obama explained that as First Lady it was important to remember to use the position to highlight their personal interests. “We can’t waste this spotlight, it is temporary and life is short and change is needed and women are smarter than men. And the men can’t complain because you’re outnumbered today,” she said as the audience laughed. Obama cited Laura Bush as a First Lady that acted with a level of

A California couple is speaking out after they say their finances have been devastated over their daughter’s student loan debt, which they are being forced to repay after the woman died unexpectedly four years ago. Steve and Darnelle Mason’s 27-year-old daughter Lisa died suddenly from a liver disease, leaving behind three children. Darnelle Mason, who is now raising her grandchildren along with her husband, told Fox Business the “excruciating” pain of losing her daughter has only been compounded by the crushing debt. “She was doing what she really loved to do,” Mason said. “So it is really just a crushing

Is it really any wonder why Netanyahu and Abdel Fattah el-Sisi tell Secretary Kerry to stay out of the grown up issues? (Snip for photo)I mean seriously, is there a better representation of how effeminate and metrosexual most male liberals are? And that doesn’t even illicit the conversation about how optics of a representative international figurehead can be broadcast throughout the world. As if, someone couldn’t/wouldn’t say: “um, hey John, you might want to reconsider this before heading out in public“….. Because if you’re comfortable riding a pink girls bicycle in chinos and Jesus Adidas during an errand run, well,
