Blue State Blues: The Golf That
Divides Americans

Breitbart Big Government, by Joel B. Pollak

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 7/5/2014 12:15:34 PM

President Barack Obama is fond of describing the deep inequality afflicting American society. And then he goes off to play golf. He´s getting near the 200-round mark for his entire presidency, a sporting feat perhaps worthy of Teddy Roosevelt for its sheer audacity. Golf is the most unequal sport in America, demanding expensive fees or country club memberships. Yet if the president plays it so often, golf must be inherently patriotic--right? So, while visiting Chicago, in the Fourth of July spirit, I recovered an old set of clubs from my parents´ garage and headed to the local nine-hole. My brother

Powderhorn Park oratory
draws Minneapolis left
Star-Tribune (Minneapolis, MN), by Steve Brandt    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 7/5/2014 11:17:25 AM     Post Reply
It wasn’t exactly a reprise of the photo of Farmer-Laborite Gov. Floyd B. Olson speaking to thousands in Powderhorn Park that helped to spark Ed Felien’s idea, but his attempt to organize a Minneapolis version of London’s famed Speakers’ Corner at least drew a few curious onlookers on Friday. Felien’s open invitation to Minneapolitans to gather in the park for some old-fashioned July 4 oratory drew a score of speakers, and an audience that topped at 22, many of them those same speakers. This being Minneapolis, and more specifically the Powderhorn neighborhood, the politics ran from left to lefter.

Poll: Do you approve of President
Obama´s job performance?

TRENTON — Do you approve of the job President Obama is doing? Obama captured 58 percent of the vote in New Jersey when he was re-elected in 2012. But a Monmouth University/Asbury Park Press poll released this week showed about 51 percent of New Jersey voters disapprove of Obama´s performance, while 45 percent approve of his work. That´s a 4 percentage-point drop since April, when 49 percent approved and 47 percent disapproved. Pollsters say Obama´s Affordable Care Act — his controversial overhaul of the U.S. health care system — and his handling of U.S. involvement in Iraq appear to have

With the newest border crisis focusing on the influx of immigrants from Central America, many of them children, the political punching bag that is immigration reform is again leading the news. Democrats, incongruously, claim that the obvious ineffectiveness of our border is proof that we need to reform immigration laws to allow current foreigners who are here illegally to stay. How this stops the flow rather than increase it is not explained. Many Republicans have taken up the cause of amnesty by raising the curious proposition that many of those currently here illegally may eventually join the ranks of the

Millions of Americans impacted by Hurricane Arthur came out in force to celebrate Independence Day in cities and towns all along the eastern seaboard. The first storm of the Atlantic hurricane season moved away from New York and towards New England Friday as it was downgraded from Category II to a Category I, and most people on large cities along the seaboard refuse to let the storm dampen their Independence Day enthusiasm. The hurricane, initially forecast to drench New York, fizzled out before it ever got going. The showers were predicted to last until at least 9pm, but never amounted

At least 14 people have been shot in Chicago at the start of the long holiday weekend, including a woman killed as she sat on a porch near Garfield Park and a man slain in front of a hair salon on the South Side, police said. Most recently, a person has been shot tonight in the Englewood neighborhood on the South Side, police said. It happened at 6:36 p.m. in the 6700 block of South Wolcott Avenue, according to police. Check back for details. Shambreyh R. Barfield, 21, was sitting with a friend at a two-flat in the 3800 block

Who needs Fourth of July fireworks when you have Joan Rivers around? The comedian known for her lack of self-censoring recently officiated a same-sex wedding and was asked by a photographer if she believed the United States would ever see the first gay or female president. Her response was typical Rivers. "We already have it with Obama, so let´s just calm down," she said. "You know Michelle (Obama) is a trans." When asked to further explain Rivers said, "A transgender. We all know it." A representative for Rivers released the following statement to CNN from the comic about her remarks to

Pro-Amnesty Crowd Burns American
Flag at Murrieta on 4th of July

MURRIETA -- An American flag has reportedly been burned by pro-amnesty protesters near the Murrieta Border Patrol station on America’s Independence Day. Breitbart News obtained the above photograph, which shows a burnt flag on the ground, from an anti-illegal immigration activist who was monitoring the pro-amnesty demonstration. Opponents of illegal immigration had gathered in Murrieta to stop Friday´s planned transfer of Central American illegal aliens, as they did earlier this week. A pro-amnesty counter-demonstration was organized in response. The illegal aliens, many of them unaccompanied children, are being brought from overcrowded Texas detention facilities for processing in California

C-SPAN Callers Advocate ‘White

When C-SPAN’s Washington Journal invited viewers to weigh in on the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act, several callers phoned in to advocate for “white pride,” suggesting that black people owe an immense debt to white people; and that society ignores discrimination against white races like the Irish and Italians. Caller “Thomas” from Maryland explained to a straight-faced host Steve Scully that he is “much less liberal” now than he was during the 1964 passage of civil rights legislation. In the clip, originally flagged by TPM, the caller continued: I think the blacks have brought on most of their

Immigrant-rights activists have set up water stations, gone out nearly daily to find border crossers in distress, and circulated warning posters and maps of the locations of those who have died in the desert. (Snip) Now Robin Hoover, founder and former member of the local group Humane Borders, is planning to distribute 100 high-intensity flashlights. Hoover will work today with a local church in Altar, Sonora, 115 miles southwest of Tucson and one of the last staging areas for would-be border crossers, to pass out the $8.32 flashlights that can illuminate a tree a half-mile away and include both a strobe

American composer-conductor John Williams, 82, is set to debut a new arrangement of The Star-Spangled Banner for Independence Day. It will feature choirs, trumpets, an orchestra and cannons on the National Mall in Washington D.C. for the nation´s birthday. Usually a soloist performs the national anthem for the annual ´Capitol Fourth´ celebration in Washington. But this year, the acclaimed composer will lead the National Symphony Orchestra, the U.S. Army Herald Trumpets, the Joint Armed Forces Chorus and the Choral Arts Society of Washington in performing a special new arrangement. This year marks the 200th anniversary of the national anthem.

Benghazi attack had nothing

New documents filed by the U.S. Justice Department against Libyan militant Ahmed Abu Khatallah further shut down claims made by the Obama administration that the Benghazi attack sprouted from from an anti-islam film. The documents come after recent comments made by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton that some of the attackers may have been influenced by the online video. The court filings make clear those who organized the attack were part of a ´conspiracy´ involving several members of the Ansar al-Sharia ´Islamic extremist militia´, reports Fox News. The government are trying to ensure Khatallah remains behind bars.

Maybe we’ve been conned. There’s a growing recognition that Barack Obama is an incompetent poser, working out of his depth, and his administration is the gang that can’t shoot straight. There’s a lot of evidence to support that belief. Everything he touches becomes a bloody mess, like crushed bones and bits of flesh caught in the tracks of a tank slicing through a rank of soldiers (or civilians). Iraq, Syria, Egypt — all gone, as prospects for countries with a prosperous and democratic future. The “reset” with Russia, meant to ensure that America and the replacement republic of the old

Hillary Clinton continued to justify her high-dollar speaking fees on Friday, telling ABC News’ Ann Compton that all of the money she’s made from colleges over the past year and a half has been donated to her family’s foundation. “All of the fees have been donated to the Clinton Foundation for it to continue its life-changing and life-saving work. So it goes from a foundation at a university to another foundation,” Clinton said when asked about the criticism she and her husband have faced recently for their wealth. Hillary Clinton reportedly makes roughly $200,000 for each speaking engagement. And recent reports show

A charter plane believed to be carrying immigrants arrived this evening at San Diego’s Lindbergh Field, apparently from Texas. Three Homeland Security buses arrived a few minutes later, trailed by numerous law enforcement vehicles. There is no information as to the buses´ destination. Earlier this week, federal officials said that 140 immigrants who had been detained crossing the border in Texas would arrive Friday. But since the blockade by protesters Tuesday at Murrieta, officials have declined to provide information about the movement of the immigrants.

Rep Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) believes the illegal alien children flooding across the border need candy not deportation. Breitbart.com reported: Thursday at a field hearing in Texas pertaining to the surge of unaccompanied minors at the U.S.-Mexico border, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) balked at the suggestion of Homeland Security Chairman Rep. Mike McCaul (R-TX) that the children filling the border facilities need to be detained and deported by holding up a bag of lollipops to demonstrate her view that compassion not deportation is in order. Referring to the illegal immigrant minors as “homeless children,” Jackson Lee said, “I took lollipops along with

President Obama has, except on fleeting occasions, routinely disdained the customary Oval Office language of compromise and coalition-building for the low arts of sophistry and belittlement. That was to be expected, given his background as a Chicago community organizer and product of that city´s corrupt Democrat political machine. But Obama has far exceeded dismal expectations. No previous American president employed the systematic distortion of fact and mendacious characterization of opponents that have typified Obama´s presidency. His "so sue me" speech last week is a classic illustration of the community organizer practicing Saul Alinsky´s 13th rule: “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize

The 81-year-old Joan Rivers and her mouth are back at it again. A street reporter found Rivers Thursday, and, in light of her officiating a gay wedding Monday, asked if she predicted the United States would have its woman president or a gay president first. “Well, we already have it with Obama, so let’s just calm down.” “You know Michelle [Obama] is a tranny,” she added. When asked for clarification she was more politically correct: ”A transgender.” Watch the whole thing here:

WASHINGTON-- First ladies typically avoid getting into public scraps, but Michelle Obama has jumped into perhaps her biggest battle yet. She´s fighting a House Republican effort to soften a central part of her prized anti-childhood obesity campaign and she says she´s ready "to fight until the bitter end." Mrs. Obama even mocked the GOP effort in an opinion column and argued her case before her Twitter followers. "Remember a few years ago when Congress declared that the sauce on a slice of pizza should count as a vegetable in school lunches?" she wrote in The New York Times. "You don´t have to be

Climate alarmism is "the biggest fraud in the field of science" and the 97% consensus claim is nonsensical, Apollo 7 astronaut Walter Cunningham tells MRCTV in a preview of his presentation at the upcoming Heartland Institute climate conference, July 7-9. "Since about 2000, I looked farther and farther into it," Col. Cunningham (USMC, Ret.) tells MRCTV in an exclusive interview. "I found that not one of the claims that the alarmists were making out there had any bearings, whatsoever. And, so, it was kind of a no-brainer to come to the conclusion." Cunningham rejects the notion of man-made climate, not

Sources inside MSNBC say former White House Spokesman Jay Carney, who recently resigned from his post at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, will likely be headed to MSNBC. Carney is in talks for a contributor position. If it happens, Carney would follow in the natural footsteps of a few other aides to President Obama who were welcomed into the MSNBC family upon leaving their jobs. The last White House Press Secretary, Robert Gibbs, became an MSNBC contributor in May, 2013, while David Axelrod, a top aide to Obama, became one in February 2013.

As the rest of America rings in Independence Day, the Obama family have yet another reason to celebrate: Malia Obama´s sweet 16th birthday. The First Daughter, who has recently been in California doing a TV production internship, was just ten years old when her father was first elected President of the United States. And over the past six years, the country has witnessed her grow up into a tall, stylish and mature teen, giving her parents plenty of reasons to be proud. The Obamas will be ringing in the holiday tonight with a Pitbull concert on the South Lawn of the White

The headline of today’s jobs report, that 288,000 jobs were created in the last month, is positive. At least, it is better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick. However, as with most economic reports these days, there is a veneer of good news — but when you look closer, the White House is using the positive headlines to hide the growing deterioration of the American workforce. I’m sure by now people are tired of reading about the bad news, and I’ll admit I am weary of having to blow the whistle and expose the truth every

NEW YORK — Hillary Rodham Clinton´s book "Hard Choices" is on track to be one of the year´s top nonfiction books despite another slip in sales. Nielsen BookScan says "Hard Choices" sold 26,000 copies during its third week of publication. Clinton´s memoir about her years as secretary of state was published June 10 and sold more than 80,000 copies the first week and nearly 50,000 the second week.(Snip) "Hard Choices" has been the No. 1-selling nonfiction hardcover on The New York Times´ list for three straight weeks but has slipped on Amazon.com, ranking No. 57 as of Thursday night.
