The liberal problem with liking America
New York Post, by Jonah Goldberg

Original Article

Posted By:Scottyboy, 7/6/2014 11:20:00 PM

You wouldn’t think, five years into the Obama presidency, that so many liberal Americans wouldn’t like America. A new Pew survey found that 44 percent of Americans don’t often feel pride in being an American, and only 28 percent said that America is the greatest country in the world. Respondents who “often feel proud to be American” were overwhelmingly conservative (from 72 percent to 81 percent depending on the kind of conservative). A majority (60 percent) of “solid liberals” said they don’t often feel proud to be an American. The polling data only proves what has been obvious for a

Comments:
I think this Goldberg guy might be on to something.
But to expand, my personal theory holds that there just might be a correlation between the (deliberate) dissolution of the nuclear family and the transference of that attendant hatred of fatherlessness toward our country..

FTA: "Hillary Clinton insisted we are following in the footsteps of anti-democratic Middle Eastern theocracies."

Cheeky woman, she was responsible for the situation in Arab countries that had their apogee in Caliph Ibrahim. Thank you wife of Bill Lewinsky.

World stock markets dropped as nervous investors pulled money out amid an intensification of geopolitical crises surrounding Ukraine and Iraq. US President Barack Obama authorised airstrikes on the Islamic State jihadists in Iraq and Russia hit back against the West´s sanctions over its activity in Ukraine with its own.

BEIRUT -- The U.S. embassy in Beirut took to social media Wednesday to deny claims that the United States created and condones the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. Media reports in Lebanon have claimed that in former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton´s memoir Hard Choices, she "admitted in her book that the United States created the Islamic States and planned on acknowledging its presence." Clinton´s book has no reference of any kind to U.S. involvement in the creation of ISIS or plans to recognize it as a legitimate organization. The media reports said that the United

Hillary Clinton´s five rules

It’s a sad reality that Clinton, despite her great success, must address the issues of sexism and physical appearance in every interview – imagine if a male politician was quoted encouraging men to throw down their grooming kits and just ‘go for it’, it’s laughable, right? But until women are judge only on their achievements and conduct, until the media’s obsession with women´s physical appearance wanes, it’s a conversation we still need to have. And it is the Hillarys, the Sheryls, Malalas and Julias who keep this conversation alive publicly on our behalf. Having read the former US Secretary of State’s

The disgraceful video above shows how racist Russian students projected a laser image of Barack Obama eating a banana on to the US Embassy in Moscow. On 4th August, the so-called show began with a message to the US President pretending to wish him a happy 53rd birthday. A likeness of Obama with a party hat on his head then appeared, although the mouth area was made to look like that of a monkey - and a banana repeatedly moved into the mouth. The series of projections are then repeated several times. A group calling itself The Moscow Student Initiative

Israeli security forces have arrested the leader of the Hamas terror cell which kidnapped and murdered Israeli teenagers Naftali Frenkel, Eyal Yifrah and Gilad Sha´ar.

The black HIV epidemic: A public health

Washington Post, by Jeff Guo    Original Article

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

Monthly premiums for the second year of Obamacare health insurance plans are expected to rise an average of 13 percent, Florida officials announced Monday. The Florida Office of Insurance Regulation has completed its analysis of recently submitted health insurance plans from 19 companies in Florida, and also estimated the 2015 federal subsidies that such families could expect. After those subsidies are applied, the monthly cost will range between $400 and 600 per family in most counties, according to the state analysis. "Even with a federal subsidy, that could mean an out-of-pocket cost of $500 or more per month to have coverage," the Florida

It provided no details on when he visited the facility or where it is located. It is believed to refer to a lubricant factory, run by Korea Sungri Joint Venture Co., in the North´s port city

President Obama, who ran for office on a platform of ending U.S. military hostilities in Iraq, said Thursday night that he had authorized ´targeted airstrikes if necessary´ in an effort to protect the delivery of humanitarian aid to threatened Iraqis, and to ensure the safety of US personnel delivering the assistance. ´We do whatever is necessary to protect our people.

Democratic Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis on Thursday questioned the deployment of 1,000 National Guard troops on the border with Mexico to curtail illegal immigration and she promised, if elected, that she will study withdrawing them. The troop contingent was promised a month ago by current Republican Gov. Rick Perry, and it is expected that in the coming days they will begin to be deployed along the Texas-Mexico border, which stretches some 2,000 kilometers (about 1,240 miles). "The action I am ordering today will tackle this crisis head-on by multiplying our efforts to combat the cartel activity, human traffickers and individual criminals

The GOP has shown time and again that it is incapable of passing any meaningful immigration reform. But give them tens of thousands of Central American children fleeing violence, and they fly into action. Turns out, what animates today´s Republicans is deporting kids. So inspired were they, the GOP-controlled House of Representatives stayed late Friday to distort and demagogue a humanitarian crisis, passing a reprehensible bill that the Republicans claim addresses the border crisis. Kevin Appleby, director of the Office of Migration Policy at the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, told me, "This bill guts any real due process for

This week, ProPublica released a report on the financial (and moral) corruption of a Tea Party group operating under the name Move America Forward, which was founded by one Sal Russo. Russo also helped start the Our Country Deserves Better PAC, aka the Tea Party Express. Move America Forward has run fake drives to give care packages to troops, stolen images of other charitable campaigns and passed them off as its own, and trumpeted a nonexistent partnership with Walter Reed Hospital — all while funneling very real millions to itself.

An elementary school in the outer suburbs of Atlanta has outlawed birthday cupcakes, cookies and, in fact, all food from birthday parties over fears that some kids with food allergies could feel sad and left out. Officials at Brooks Elementary School in Newnan, Ga. announced the draconian new policy for the upcoming school year via a letter to parents, reports The Newnan Times-Herald. “When parents have brought in goodies for birthdays, oftentimes these children are not included in the snack because of dietary restrictions and have felt left out,” Julie Raschen, principal of Brooks Elementary, said, according to the Times-Herald.

Willingboro — A recreation and senior citizens center in Willingboro known as the "Kennedy Center" will soon be named after the sitting president and not a former one.

President Obama said Thursday night that he has authorized two new, major actions by the U.S. military in Iraq: airstrikes against militants with the Islamic State if U.S. interests or personnel are threatened, and humanitarian assistance for thousands of civilians who have fled the Islamist advance in northwest Iraq and are now trapped on a mountain. Even those two specific missions are more complicated than that, however. First, the U.S. humanitarian mission on Mount Sinjar began Thursday with airdrops by military aircraft, but it could require targeted airstrikes in order to “break the siege” at the base of the mountain and
