If There is One Thing Your

Independent Journal Review, by Mike Miller

I grew up listening to Paul Harvey on the radio. I didn’t always find him, but somehow, he always had a way of finding me. I’d usually be driving back from a business trip and inevitably, I’d tune in to some obscure station – and there he was. Loved it. I also loved his resoluteness – particularly when it came to the principles and values for which he so deeply cared. Regardless of which direction the political winds blew, Paul Harvey stood steadfast for the beliefs he held dear and his unwavering love of country. To Paul, America really was

Always loved Paul Harvey. We are poorer for his passing.

Excellent comments. We are doing our children no favors with the modern version of parenting and the results are all too plain to see.

Maybe it´s better than Paul can´t see the USA of today.

Our children/grandchildren are missing out of the best America had to offer at one time.

He was a Great American. He expressed thoughts---often deep, often lighthearted, but always full of truth. He had a magnificent speaking voice, a poet´s turn of phrase, and a great playwrights skill at unfolding a tale---all within an amazingly short presentation. An American original. He is sorely missed.

End Partisan Primaries, Save America
New York Times, by Charles E. Schumer    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 7/22/2014 10:21:11 AM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON —Polarization and partisanship are a plague on American politics. Political scientists have found that the two parties have each grown more ideologically homogeneous since the 1970s. The Senate hasn’t been so polarized since Reconstruction; the House has not been so divided since around 1900. As measured by laws passed, the current Congress is on track to be among the least productive in our republic’s history. How did this happen? One of the main causes has not gotten enough attention: the party primary system. The reasons behind the shocking primary defeat last month of Representative Eric Cantor of Virginia, who

A new exhibit at The George W. Bush Presidential Center features the designs of one of fashion´s most acclaimed designers — Oscar de la Renta. The Bush Center in Dallas unveiled "Oscar de la Renta: Five Decades of Style" on Saturday, an exhibit dedicated to the high-end fashion designer who has dressed the women of Hollywood, the White House and more. The display features 60 original pieces, including gowns worn by Laura Bush as the first lady and TODAY’s own Jenna Bush Hager. “His designs for first ladies reveals his secure place at the pinnacle of American fashion,” reads a

   

 

  


 
Obama set to rake in millions, despite
criticism of fundraising during tumult
CNN, by Kevin Liptak    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 7/22/2014 9:18:31 AM     Post Reply
Seattle– Republicans and some political pundits have taken sharp aim at President Barack Obama for maintaining his fundraising schedule amid a period of global unrest. Not among those complaining? Democrats who stand to benefit from the millions of dollars in campaign cash Obama will help pull in this week during a three-day West Coast swing, bringing him into the homes of entertainment and real estate bigwigs in Seattle, the Silicon Valley and Los Angeles. Based on descriptions of Obama’s fundraisers from Democratic officials, Obama could raise north of $6 million during the trip, which comes at the same time as

‘I’m for It’: Obama Lends Support
to DC Statehood Push

President Barack Obama said on Monday that he’s in favor of Washington, D.C., gaining statehood. “I’m in D.C., so I’m for it,” he said to a room of mostly young, minority boys who were at the White House for Obama’s My Brother’s Keeper initiative. “Folks in D.C. pay taxes like everybody else. They contribute to the overall well-being of the country like everybody else. They should be represented like everybody else.” Obama said he’s supported the idea of statehood for D.C. “for quite sometime” but acknowledged that “the politics of it” would make it something difficult to move through Congress.

Timely Malaysian Airliner Investigation,

Samantha Power, US Ambassador to the United Nations, gave an impassioned speech to the UN after passage of Security Council Resolution 2166 on the downing of Malaysian Airlines Flight 17. She is justifiably “horrified and enraged” by the post crash cover-up. Specifically, “by the clear intention of some to obstruct an investigation into how the passengers and crew died.” How rich. Where was similar “horror and outrage” when the President, Secretary of State, White House Press Secretary, and UN Ambassador blamed a YouTube video for the deadly attack on the Benghazi embassy? Seems that following the Benghazi massacre, the Obama

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin rejected overtures from True Blood´s producers for a cameo role on the conservative-bashing vampire show. Her instincts proved to be correct after Sunday´s HBO episode in which Republican women were once again demeaned when one of the lead characters said in horror, "Oh my God, I´m a Republi-c*nt." Palin told Breitbart News after she heard about the misogynistic episode that she simply wondered, "´True Blood´ or true gall?" "The brilliant minds of ´True Blood´ were brazen enough to ask me to do a cameo on their show, apparently so they could insult a conservative woman

WASHINGTON — Amid a swirl of foreign and border challenges, President Barack Obama is embarking on the one mission that has regularly proved a winner for him — raising money for his fellow Democrats. Obama on Tuesday was starting a three-day West Coast trip, scheduled to attend at least five fundraising events in Seattle, San Francisco and Los Angeles less than four months ahead of midterm elections that could change Washington´s balance of power. The trip comes as Obama is dealing with a series of high-profile tests of his presidency, from Eastern Europe to the Middle East to the Southern

(Video) A press briefing between reporters and White House press secretary Josh Earnest got testy Monday as reporters pushed back against the White House’s criticism of a Washington Post story for relying on anonymous administration sources. “The lead of that story is hooked entirely to anonymous sources,” Earnest said of the Post report that Obama aides were warned of coming influx Central American minors into the United States. “That’s just a fact.” “You criticize anonymous sources, but we have anonymous sources from you all every day.

President Barack Obama has talked politics with David Letterman and slow jammed the news with Jimmy Fallon, but he has yet to appear on Jimmy Kimmel Live. TMZ claimed that was about to change this week when they reported that Obama would appear on Jimmy Kimmel’s show this Wednesday during an already-scheduled trip to Los Angeles. The site quoted “ABC network sources” who said Obama would travel to the El Capitan theatre on Hollywood Boulevard to tape a segment with Kimmel that would be at least partly “serious.” Sources at the LAPD reportedly confirmed the news to TMZ, saying the

IRS Deputy Associate Chief Counsel Thomas Kane said in transcribed congressional testimony that more IRS officials experienced computer crashes, bringing the total number of crash victims to “less than 20,” and also said that the agency does not know if the lost emails are still backed up somewhere. The new round of computer crash victims includes David Fish, who routinely corresponded with Lois Lerner, as well as Lerner subordinate Andy Megosh, Lerner’s technical adviser Justin Lowe, and Cincinnati-based agent Kimberly Kitchens. “You stated at the time that document was produced to Congress, the document, the white paper in Exhibit 3[the

You read it here first. Well, you read it in the Wall Street Journal first, about a week ago. But that is beside the point. I find that every time I pick up the Wall Street Journal, it is trying to make me feel guilty about something like this. First it was that I was not marrying fast enough. Now it’s that I’m not making enough babies and poor Procter & Gamble has to switch into making adult diapers to make ends meet.

You would think that with the ongoing violence in the Middle East, the recent international air disaster over Ukraine, and the massive influx of illegal immigrants on our Southern border, the White House would cancel the president´s upcoming trip to the West Coast for Democratic party fundraisers. But you would be wrong. Mr. Obama is scheduled to leave Washington Tuesday and headline a party event in Seattle later that night. He will then attend Democratic fundraisers in California before returning to Washington on Thursday. White House press secretary Josh Earnest told reporters Monday that Mr. Obama effectively can do his

Some truths CNN reveals only accidentally. One such truth Anderson Cooper shared on the night of July 17. In speaking about the shoot down of Malaysian airliner MH 17 earlier that day, Cooper referred back to “July 17, 1996, when TWA Flight 800 was shot down off the coast of Long Island in New York.” (snip)wo days earlier, Cooper hosted a CNN special report on the subject, “Witnessed: The Crash of TWA Flight 800.” To understand the depth of media-government complicity, it is useful to compare “Witnessed” with two prior videos. One is the ironically titled, “No Survivors: Why TWA 800

Convinced that their region has suffered as much Obama administration meddling as it can possibly stand, Israel and Egypt took the extraordinary step earlier this week of jointly rejecting requests by US Secretary of State John Kerry to involve himself in ceasefire talks with the terrorist group Hamas. Israeli and Egyptian diplomats both claim Egyptian efforts to mediate a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas collapsed as a direct result of Secretary Kerry’s announcement he was prepared to join the talks. He apparently made the announcement without first consulting either of the parties. The diplomats are convinced that their own

A pernicious, little-known Obama administration policy – one that that incentivizes adult illegal immigrants to use children as human shields to escape arrest and deportation at the border – largely has escaped the media’s notice. This same policy is driving the historic surge of children at the border, as everyone from coyotes to illegal immigrant adults already in America seeks to use children to guarantee their safe passage into the country, or to protect them from deportation if they are illegally living here. The flood of illegal immigrant children, piling up like human debris on the US border, won’t stop

So, then, what are we supposed to think when the governor of Texas dispatches National Guardsmen to the state border with Mexico in order to deflect the onrush of illegal border-crossers? What are we supposed to do? Do? A strange concept these days. Do something about the Russians and their depraved allies for shooting down a passenger plane? Do something about the depraved crowd of terrorists who provoked Israel into assaulting the tunnels in which they skulk? Do something about those equally depraved Iraqi terrorists now rounding up and expelling Christians from their midst? Do something about the kidnappers of schoolchildren

WASHINGTON— President Barack Obama said Joe Biden would make a "superb" president, but questioned whether his vice president or potential rival Hillary Clinton would want to endure another campaign for the White House, a media report Monday said. Obama, in an interview with the New Yorker, said Biden "has seen the job up close, he knows what the job entails. He understands how to separate what´s really important from what´s less important. I think he´s got great people skills. He enjoys politics, and he´s got important relationships up on the Hill (in Congress) that would serve him well." "Joe would

Perry will announce his plans Monday to mobilize some 1,000 guardsmen to the Rio Grande Valley to increase security at the border, according to the Monitor, a south Texas newspaper. The newspaper quoted a state senator and an internal memo it obtained from a state official’s office. Perry spokesman Felix Browne told The Washington Post he would neither confirm nor deny the report, but said all details will be given at a news conference at 2 p.m. Central time

Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy wasn’t out to make news when he addressed the annual conference of the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals and devoted most of his 50-minute speech to the Magna Carta, which turns 800 years old in 2015. But Kennedy did let on that he doesn’t belong to the school of Constitution-worshipers who base their legal doctrines on what they glean to be the original, literal meaning of every word and phrase in the nation’s founding document.

Vice President Biden told Vladimir Putin that he did not believe the Russian leader had “a soul” during a visit to the Kremlin in 2011, the vice president said in a New Yorker magazine interview published Monday. Biden said the incident occurred while he was touring Putin’s office in the Kremlin. “I had an interpreter, and when he was showing me his office I said, ‘It’s amazing what capitalism will do, won’t it?

On Monday, DREAMers stormed the halls of Congress to stage a "GOP funeral" in front of the offices of Republican senators, some of whom have expressed concerns that President Barack Obama´s unilateral grants of temporary amnesty have caused the current border crisis. Pro-amnesty activists from United We Dream dressed in black and marched around with a mock casket that had these words emblazoned on it: "RIP GOP." They held flowers and started chanting and singing, "We shall overcome." Sen.
