NASCAR team pulls Charlie
Crist sponsorship

CBS News, by Jake Miller

Original Article

Reversing course, a NASCAR team said Friday that it will not feature an advertisement for Charlie Crist, the former Republican governor of Florida who´s now seeking a return to his old job as a Democrat, on a car competing in the Coke Zero 400 this weekend. Phil Parsons, of Phil Parsons Racing, said he pulled his sponsorship agreement with Crist out of respect for his business partner Mike Curb, a Republican and former lieutenant governor of California. ´He didn´t feel comfortable and he´s been a huge supporter and partner to us from the very start," Parsons told The Sporting News.

Isn´t it rich? As a Republican (in name only) Crist was the worst Florida governor of the past three decades. Who could say how bad he´d be as an unrestrained ´Rat? Same as most NASCAR owners and drivers, Phil Parsons is a good fellow. Without Charlie Crist´s name on the car fewer fans will hope the car gets in the wall. Good decision, although litigation factory owner John Morgan will be miffed.

The real reason he pulled him name off his car was he was afraid of being run off the road by everyone else.

Charlie Crist is Floridas answer to John Edwards and John Kerry.
All are 100% phonies.

When Mike CUrb was Lt Gov of California, the Gov, Jerry Brown, could not leave the state because he was afraid Curb would push legislation to thwart Brown´s agenda or kill some of Brown´s legislation. It was pretty comical.

CA Candidate Neel Kashkari´s
Homeless Week Makes the Case
Against Obama´s Executive Amnesty
Breitbart Big Government, by Tony Lee    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 8/1/2014 1:52:18 AM     Post Reply
Republican California gubernatorial candidate Neel Kashkari recently spent a week homeless on the streets of Fresno, CA, and he may have discovered why so many American workers oppose illegal immigration. His struggles to find a job--let alone food and a roof over his head--exemplify why American workers oppose illegal immigration and President Barack Obama´s plans to give millions of illegal immigrants work permits in an economy that has not recovered for them. On Thursday, fierce opposition to Obama´s potential granting of work permits to millions of illegal immigrants caused House GOP leaders to pull their border bill,

WASHINGTON — Immigrant activists and religious leaders massed outside the White House on Thursday to protest against U.S. policies on deporting migrants in the country illegally, and police arrested 112 demonstrators they say blocked traffic. The protesters urged President Barack Obama to immediately halt all deportations. They also called on him to extend relief for migrants by decree and to protect Central American children crossing into the U.S. unaccompanied by adults. Minerva Carcano, a bishop for the United Methodist Church in Los Angeles, said such protests are needed to “raise a moral voice, because you do not hear from

Aw, is someone sad? Rep. Chris Van Hollen slammed House Republicans on Thursday, saying members now have to check with “Speaker Cruz” to get any legislation passed. “It was Senator Cruz calling the shots, and that’s why people around here are calling him ‘Speaker Cruz’ today,” the Maryland Democrat said to MSNBC’s Alex Wagner. “It means when Speaker Boehner says he’s going to get something done from now on, he’d better be checking with Senator Cruz to see if he’s gonna get the votes because clearly the new leadership team isn’t up to the task.” It is perfectly understandable that

SACRAMENTO, Calif.— The Republican candidate for California governor said Thursday he spent a week living as a homeless person in Fresno to highlight the disparity between the governor´s claim that the state is making an economic comeback and the reality faced by the working poor. Neel Kashkari, a millionaire and former Goldman Sachs banker who is far behind Gov. Jerry Brown in pre-election polls, released a short documentary about the six nights he spent sleeping in parking lots and on park benches, and wrote about his experience in an opinion piece published in the Wall Street Journal. Kashkari, 41, said

When asked at a press briefing on Thursday why her party´s message is "not resonating with the electorate," House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi told a room full of reporters “we need you to be messengers.” A reporter asked Pelosi: “So, you make this case about the skepticism that people have of this anti-government premise here.

Ex-NASA ´hackers´ use ingenuity,
technology to rescue first-ever
moon photos
Houston Chronicle, by Carol Christian    Original Article

When a handful of former NASA employees decided to get serious about retrieving moon photos from 50-year-old analog tapes, they got a lot of negative feedback. "We were told by professionals it would cost millions, but we did it anyway," said Keith Cowing, co-lead on the Lunar Orbiter Image Recovery Project. At the end of March, the project celebrated processing the last of about 1,500 photos made by NASA´s lunar orbiters in the 1960s. The next phase involves preparing them for submission to the Planetary Data System, a public archive. Now housed in a converted McDonald´s restaurant on NASA property

Emory University Hospital in Atlanta said Thursday afternoon it planned to accept a patient who has Ebola "within the next several days," but did not say in a statement who the patient was or whether it was one of the American volunteers who has the disease. Two American volunteers stricken with the Ebola virus that is spreading in West Africa were said to have worsened overnight, as U.S. officials considered options to evacuate them out of West Africa.Dr. Kent Brantly and Nancy Writebol were in “stable but grave” condition in Liberia on Thursday morning, according to a press release from

Monica Lewinsky, famous for her late-1990s affair with then-married and sitting U.S. president Bill Clinton, has a new job. She’ll be writing for Vanity Fair. A Vanity Fair spokesperson told Politico that as of now, there’s no set schedule or subject matter Lewinsky is tied to, “but she and her editor are on the lookout for relevant topics of interest.” Vanity Fair published a first-person account by Lewinsky in June, wherein she revisited the sex scandal she’ll be forever associated with. On Thursday, she wrote a piece for the magazine about the internet’s power to tell her side

Not over yet? Border crisis bill
in limbo as Republicans huddle

A dramatic scene was unfolding on Capitol Hill on Thursday as House Republican leaders left open the possibility that the chamber could still vote on a border crisis bill -- just moments after punting on the legislation and sending lawmakers home. Earlier in the afternoon, House leaders abandoned the bill after failing to round up enough votes for it. Lawmakers then began heading out for the five-week summer recess. But incoming House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., then unexpectedly took to the floor to say "additional votes are possible," indicating lawmakers should stay. Boos could be heard in the House

Wall Street tumbled deep into the red as traders digested a slew of corporate news and took money off the table with stocks not far from record highs. As of 1:30 p.m. ET, the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 221 points, or 1.3%, to 16660, the S&P 500 tumbled 28.6 points, or 1.5%, to 1942 and the Nasdaq Composite dropped 73.4 points, or 1.6%, to 4390. In a sign of the breadth of the selloff, every major sector was recently down by at least 1%. The biggest losers could be found in telecommunications, technology, energy and health care.

Boehner Tries to Resuscitate
Dying Border Bill

In the Speaker´s lobby just off the House floor, members of Congress were full of recriminations over how the border bill had just died -- until it sprang back to life. House leadership has announced a 3pm special conference meeting to discuss the issue and raised the possibility of additional votes before the House departs for summer recess. The change is an abrupt shift from a decision to pull the bill and leave without a vote on it at all. According to Republicans familiar with the matter, the decision prompted a sudden and fierce backlash against Speaker John Boehner from

House GOP pulls border bill
rather than see it defeated

House Republicans pulled Speaker John A. Boehner’s slimmed-down legislation to address the brewing immigration crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border rather than see it defeated, amid a conservative revolt that the $659 million proposal did not address the core issues. Faced with certain defeat, Boehner (R-Ohio) pulled the legislation from consideration Thursday afternoon, according to guidance from leadership advisers. With more than 20 House conservatives opposed, Boehner did not have enough votes from his own Republican ranks because virtually all Democrats opposed the legislation. The resulting lack of action would end the congressional summer session in a familiar legislative failure, as

A good friend of mine apologized to me today. You see, he voted for Barack Hussein Obama in the 2008 election and he lives in a so-called “swing state.” He told me that he had not voted for Obama in the 2012 election, but that he realized that by supporting him in 2008, he had help unleash a deadly virus onto the American scene. He simply said he was sorry. I think a good many Americans feel much the same as my good friend. They know that they were seduced by the very slick presentation that Barack Obama made in the

Conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status had their applications denied by IRS bureaucrats who called them names like “crazies,” “rabid” and other words that can’t be printed in a family newspaper. The tax agency is supposed to be run by nonpartisan, career professionals, but the latest set of emails released by the House Ways and Means Committee suggest the agency is anything but. Until the scandal erupted last year, Lois G. Lerner was in charge of the IRS division overseeing tax-exempt organizations. Congressional investigators have spent months sifting through her emails — the ones that didn’t “go missing” — to find out

First lady Michelle Obama embraced her family’s African roots in a speech today, telling a young audience that the ´blood of Africa´ runs through her veins as she urged changing traditional beliefs on the worth of educating women. Her husband had shied away from discussing his African heritage in his own remarks to the 500 Africans finishing a six-week Washington leadership fellowship on Monday, referencing his Kenyan father only once in the question-and-answer session. But Michelle Obama said as an African American woman, her discussion with the African youth was ´deeply personal´. ´The roots of my family tree are in

Former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura joined the “CBS This Morning” co-hosts Wednesday to discuss the details of his legal battle with a former U.S. sniper. On Tuesday a federal jury awarded Jesse Ventura $1.8 million in his case against Kyle’s widow. The former governor told CBS: “I’m already damaged. I can’t go to a SEAL reunion anymore. That was the one place I felt safe. I can’t go there anymore. I’ll be looking over my shoulder now wondering who’s going to come after me next. And, so don’t think I come out of this unscathed. All I wanted to do was clear my name and it has nothing to do with a widow or anything like that.

Perhaps it says something about us that our most interesting presidential candidates swear they won´t run for president. This is true of Sen. Elizabeth Warren, and it´s increasingly true of Mitt Romney. As regular readers of this column know, I´ve never been much of a Romney booster. I´ve also expressed skepticism about the notion he would run again. But let´s not let "a foolish consistency" cloud our judgment. There is reason to believe that a third try wouldn´t be an absurd venture. First, in the intervening years since 2012 — and on a range of issues, not the least of which is

Stop just hatin’ all the time. C’mon, let’s get some work done together.” Obama said that he still had a lot of work to do, including spending on roads and bridges, resources for fighting wildfires, and addressing the border crisis. “I know they’re not that happy that I’m president, but that’s ok,” he added. “I’ve only got a couple years left, let’s get some work done.

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has been traveling to New York in the past month to quietly meet with high-flying business leaders to ramp up interest in a potential presidential bid, sources tell Page Six. “He’s been meeting with groups of up to 15 people at private homes to tell them about some of his moderate points of view,” a source said. “He’s been meeting with Republicans, Democrats and independents.” Our source added, “They’re not fund-raisers. It’s for people here to get to know more about him. He’s said he has not decided whether he’ll run.” We hear that Bush was in town

The “Could Ebola sneak across” link Rivera specifically referred to in his tweet directs Drudge readers to an article at the right-wing World Net Daily.

Karl Rove, former adviser to president George W.

Referring to Obama as the “cynic in chief,” Rove said on Fox News’s On the Record that Obama is “suggesting a constitutional crisis” in an effort to “fatten the accounts of Democratic fundraising groups.” White House senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer said last week that Congressional Republicans may take the path to impeach Obama.

"The civilian casualties in Gaza have been too high. And it´s become clear that the Israelis need to do more to live up to their very high standards - their very high and very public standards - for protecting civilian life," Pentagon spokesman Colonel Steve Warren said at a news briefing.
