Richard Mellon Scaife, Influential
U.S. Conservative, Dies at 82

New York Times, by Robert D. McFadden

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 7/4/2014 5:27:56 AM

Richard Mellon Scaife, the Pittsburgh philanthropist and reclusive heir to the Mellon banking fortune, whose support for right-wing causes laid the foundations for America’s modern conservative movement and fueled the 1998 impeachment of President Bill Clinton, died on Friday. He was 82. Mr. Scaife’s death was reported by the The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, a newspaper he owned. No cause of death was given. Decades before David and Charles Koch bankrolled right-wing causes, Mr. Scaife and Joseph Coors, the beer magnate, were the leading financiers of the conservative crusade of the 1970s and ’80s, seeking to reverse the liberal traditions of Franklin D. Roosevelt’s

Richard Mellon Scaife...the forefather of the Koch Brothers. Hated by the left with a fury that can hardly be accurately described unless you are familiar with Harry Reid and his Koch Brothers Derangement Syndrome.

Two references to "right-wing causes" and another to the Koch brothers in the first 75 words set an early tone for a smear. Other highlights in the piece profiled Mr. Scaife as a drunk, not intellectual, stingy and linked to corruption. The nytimes is not a newspaper.

I agree with earlier posters that the New York Times is certainly not the best place to get news of the revered conservative Mr. Scaife´s death. But, they were the first and I was on a schedule.

I´ve noticed the tight schedule problem before amongst the cheerleaders. If fact, quite often, they are so busy they only have time to find Cruz, Palin, Tea Party hit pieces from liberal news sources. Very busy indeed.

Meanwhile, all the other not-so-busy, not-so-smart posters on this site are only able to post from serious sources.

Former President George W. Bush put together a 48 member coalition for the Iraq War in 2003. 40 of those members supported military operations and 37 provided some number troops. In April 2003, the list was updated to include 49 countries, though it was reduced to 48 after Costa Rica objected to its inclusion. Of the 48 states on the list, three contributed troops to the invasion force (the United Kingdom, Australia and Poland). An additional 37 countries provided some number of troops to support military operations after the invasion was complete. Despite these numbers the liberal media continues to push the lie

WASHINGTON — Islamic State militants, who once relied on wealthy Persian Gulf donors for money, have become a self-sustaining financial juggernaut, making more than $3 million a day from oil smuggling, human trafficking, theft and extortion, according to U.S. intelligence officials and private experts. The extremist group’s resources exceed that “of any other terrorist group in history,” said a U.S. intelligence official. The Islamic State, or ISIS, has taken over large sections of Syria and Iraq, and controls as many as 11 oil fields in both countries, analysts say. It is selling oil and other goods through generations-old smuggling networks under the noses

The Department of Labor coordinated with the White House on whether or not to release hidden portions of former Labor Secretary Hilda Solis’ schedule as Solis battled an FBI investigation into her illegal fundraising for President Obama. New emails provided to The Daily Caller from the nonprofit legal research firm Cause of Action show the White House thanking the Department of Labor for “flagging” a public information request for “withheld” portions of Solis’ schedule. The White House then asked for the name of the conservative group making the request — information that Labor officials were eager to give up. As TheDC previously

Would a GOP Senate

Politico, by David Nather    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 9/15/2014 5:19:12 AM     Post Reply
If the Republicans win the Senate in November, the first thing they’ll say is: Finally, we can pass all of our bills and force President Barack Obama to deal with them. The second thing they’ll say is: Oh, wait a second. This is the Senate. That tension — between their desire to bring Obama to his knees and their ability to actually do it — is the political reality that will determine the Republicans’ legislative strategy if they win the Senate majority. They’d love to set up clear contrasts between the parties and pave the way for 2016. But everything they do

Is there a mutiny brewing around Obama?
Washington Post, by Ed Rogers    Original Article

Is a mutiny happening around President Obama? It appears possible that the president may not have made two of his most recent decisions with complete free will. The announcement that he would delay his immigration initiative until after the election and his formal announcement that the United States would take military action against the Islamic State could have been coerced. Maybe Democratic leaders in Congress and a few members of the Obama team have had it. Could it be that, after President Obama briefed Democrats in Congress on the immigration plan, they balked? Maybe the president was told that, if he

In the runup to the Sept. 23 UN Climate Summit in New York, Leonardo DiCaprio is releasing a series of films about the “climate crisis.” The first is “Carbon,” which tells us the world is threatened by a “carbon monster.” Coal, oil, natural gas and other carbon-based forms of energy are causing dangerous climate change and must be turned off as soon as possible, DiCaprio says. But he has identified the wrong monster. It is the climate scare itself that is the real threat to civilization. DiCaprio is an actor, not a scientist; it’s no real surprise that his film is sensationalistic and

Barack Obama’s Biggest Lie

There’s a lot of competition for Barack Obama’s biggest lie. The man who could assure the American public with a straight face over thirty times that they could keep their doctor under his health plan, when he knew that to be completely false, is one hellluva fibber. But execrable as that serial prevarication may have been, it doesn’t hold a proverbial candle to his most recent whopper — that the Islamic State is not Islamic — not to mention its corollary, or perhaps subsidiary lie, that real religions do not indulge in murder. Islam has been doing that pretty much straight

WASHINGTON — The Obama administration said Sunday that “several” Arab nations had offered to join in airstrikes against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, but any sustained military campaign does not appear imminent, and is likely to require an even more significant commitment from other nations and fighting forces in the region. In interviews and public statements, administration and military officials described a battle plan that would not accelerate in earnest until disparate groups of Iraqi forces, Kurds and Syrian rebels stepped up to provide the fighting forces on the ground. Equipping, training and coordinating that effort is a

Mark Sanford´s sorry saga
Washington Examiner, by Byron York    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 9/15/2014 4:30:18 AM     Post Reply
Remember when Mark Sanford was a serious possibility for the Republican vice presidential nomination? "I think [John McCain´s] veep candidate should be, has to be and probably will be either Jim DeMint or Mark Sanford, and Mark´s my guy," Ohio´s Ken Blackwell told the Washington Post in February 2008. That´s no embarrassment to Blackwell; a lot of people agreed with him back then. When McCain went down to defeat, some placed Sanford, then the governor of South Carolina, in the upper tier of the 2012 presidential field. Then, of course, came the 2009 "hiking the Appalachian Trail" matter, revelations of Sanford´s

In 2012 President Obama declared that the use of chemical weapons by Syrian President Bashar Assad would cross a “red line for us” and might trigger a U.S. military response. The U.S. and U.N. documented the use of chemical weapons in 2013. Obama did nothing. Even ISIS mocked Obama after this false threat.(Snip for photos)Now this… The Obama administration promised to overthrow the Assad regime if US planes were attacked entering Syrian airspace. Business Insider reported: President Barack Obama would seek to overthrow the regime of Bashar al-Assad if American planes were attacked upon entering Syrian air

Ron Washington, one of my all-time favorite sports characters and people, obviously did the wrong thing. How wrong, I don’t know. Maybe we will never know. But if nothing else, RonWash followed a wrong thing with a right move. He quit as manager of the Texas Rangers. Quitting with four weeks remaining in a bottom-of-the-ditch baseball season sent the local media, me included, into a what-the-hell frenzy, and also prompted some colleagues into a finger-wagging overreaction. “Wash quit on the team.” “He’s no better than Yu Darvish.” While not one normally inclined to caution others against a strong sports opinion, even I was heard suggesting restraint on

Hillary Clinton has revealed that she worked through her husband’s affair whilst he was President by making him go through an agonising ´truth and reconciliation´ process. The former US Secretary of State said that she forced Bill Clinton into South Africa-style hearings where he had to be completely honest before she forgave him. She said she was inspired by the country´s former leader Nelson Mandela and that she had to act otherwise she would remain in a mental ´prison´ for the rest of her life.

Even someone as savvy about everything as Michelle Obama sometimes flubs an outfit — or to put it more politely, wears something that doesn’t enhance her natural attractions. Which is not to say that’s all that matters about the first lady, who’s been busy with a variety of public events this week: registering voters in Georgia, cutting the ribbon on the renovated White House Visitors Center, commemorating the 9/11 terrorist attacks, even appearing in a videotaped shout-out to Prince Harry. Take a look at what she wore for all that. A little too full for her figure? (Photographs).. A flattering

This week, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) slandered a group of Middle Eastern Christians who were trying to raise awareness of their struggle to avoid a genocide in the Middle East. His cynical grandstanding was rightly condemned — but he was hardly alone. Cruz agreed to speak to this group, which included bishops of the Catholic and Orthodox Churches, ostensibly out of solidarity, but took the occasion to antagonize them over their insufficient praise for Israel, then smeared them as anti-Semites before dropping the mic. The Washington Free Beacon publicized this flameout — their publisher said the room

Voter turnout during last month´s primary races was a little too good in some counties, Arizona elections officials said Friday. Some precincts in northern Arizona tallied more ballots cast than there are registered voters, the Arizona Capitol Times reported. According to officials, errors made by poll workers and elections officials in Apache and Navajo counties led to the miscalculations. Initial reports from some precincts showed a turnout of anywhere from 200 to 400 percent. In Apache County, the Puerco West precinct reportedly had 100 votes cast, but only 23 voters are registered there. The voter turnout added up to 434

Washington - Were it any other US president in recent memory, delivering a rousing White House address promising to "vanquish" the bloodthirsty militants of the Islamic State from the face of the earth would be dismissed as the "easy part". Recall Joe Biden, the vice president with half an eye on a run for the top job in 2016, promising to follow Isil "to the gates of hell" after the beheading of a second US journalist, and you get the picture of just how easy it can be. But as Mr Obama admitted last week with a faint whiff of
