Why we´re not talking
about Ed Klein

Politico, by Dylan Byers

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 7/7/2014 8:38:32 AM

Marc Ambinder explains why it´s safe to ignore Edward Klein´s new book about the so-called blood feud between the Obamas and the Clintons: A lot of Blood Feud is highly improbable. I cannot say that it is false, or fake-but-accurate, because I cannot know for sure, and it would be reckless for me to assert that this reporting is not true simply because some of his previous reporting has been soundly discredited. ... But I am struck by how deeply skeptical conservatives are about Klein, with master logician Rush Limbaugh questioning the truthfulness of his dialogue and Fox News hosts finding

The title is striking for its irony: Why we´re not talking about Ed Klein is about, y´know...Ed Klein.

So it´s a dishy book.

And when I last looked, Marc Ambinder was part of the Omedia.

Now Politico should do an article about why they posted this.

The answer, I suspect, is that some operative upset about the success of Klein´s book asked them to do so, in hopes of spreading this notion far and wide.

I´m almost finished with it. It´s very readable and the reader doesn´t have to believe everything that is in the book to know that every single one of the main characters is a fake, devious, self-centered, untrustworthy liar.

I recommend the book. I promise you´ll revel in the dish.

Watch closely as Clinton tries to distance herself from Obama as election time nears. The Republicans must not let her get away with it. She supported him on his failed agenda and especially his disastrous foreign policy. Clinton has no vision for the country; she is only an opportunists.

If you´ve ever had the stomach to watch TV wrestlers argue, before and after actually wrestling. Then if you ever watched them wrestle, you know it´s all rehearsed, both the wrestling and the on camera theater of arguing.

The Bush and Clinton family, Obama, Soros, the Pope, Murdoch´s NewsCorp, Jaret, Biden, the Trilateral Commission,
all rulers republicans and democrats, are closely linked together, and Klein knows it. It´s all planned. They threw the children under the bus. Another ruler planned act of infamy.

It should be no surprise that the Obamas, the Clintons, and the rest of the Obama gang all hate and despise each other. There is no honor among thieves. These people would turn on one another in an instant if they thought it would be to their advantage and they could get away with it. No real loyalty, but really none of them deserve loyalty.

This sounds like the liberal media is doing damage control. Have to wonder how much they get paid, and by whom.

There are undoubtedly kernels of truth in this book. Some of the assertions were similar to those made by the Ulsterman´s White House Insider many months ago.

Why not wait and see who sues...

Ben Carson’s Book Outsold Hillary’s
Hard Choices Last Week
Mediaite, by Tina Nguyen    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 7/25/2014 10:42:21 AM     Post Reply
Last week, according to the latest figures from the Nielsen BookScan, Ben Carson‘s memoir “One Nation” outsold Hillary Clinton‘s book Hard Choices by a whopping 60%. Figures provided to The Daily Caller indicated that Carson’s book, which was released a week before Hard Choices, sold roughly 16,000 copies to Clinton’s 10,000. At this point, total sales of Carson’s book trail Hillary’s by only 9,000 copies — which is not that much, considering Hard Choices shipped a million books to stores in the first place. Both authors are widely viewed to be possible presidential contenders in 2016, which will undoubtedly lead to pundit-class

A New Disorder

Posted By: Drive- 7/25/2014 7:59:44 AM     Post Reply
Moments of clarity often come when you least expect them. In a speech to contributors last week in Seattle, Barack Obama made the case that his presidency has made America better. In most respects, it was precisely the kind of political pablum you’d expect from a president who seems more concerned with legacy-polishing than governing. He ticked off his accomplishments, a list that was equal parts premature celebration (deficit reduction), hyperbole (Obamacare), and borrowed glory (rising college attendance, a strong stock market, increased energy production). Even if few in this fawning crowd were going to question him, circumstances required the president

Among its many virtues and drawbacks, social media may be one of the most effective tools ever invented to assist journalists in harming their careers. Since the advent of Twitter, Facebook and other instantaneous digital platforms, reporters have lost their jobs, been suspended or been reassigned after posting things deemed inappropriate by readers, viewers and — most important — their bosses. The objectionable posts have usually called into question the journalists’ ability to remain neutral and fair to both sides of any story. The latest casualty: CNN correspondent Diana Magnay, who last week stirred criticism for a tweet about a group of

   

 



 
Poll: One-third say impeach Obama

Posted By: Drive- 7/25/2014 7:37:43 AM     Post Reply
One third of Americans think President Barack Obama should be impeached, a new poll says. According to a CNN/ORC International poll released Friday, 33 percent of Americans think the president should be impeached and removed from office, compared with 65 percent who say they don’t support impeachment. Fifty-seven percent of Republicans say they support impeaching Obama, compared with just 35 percent of independent voters and 13 percent of Democrats. When asked about when Congress should attempt to impeach a president, 79 percent of Americans said it should only be used if there is evidence of a serious crime — such as

Obama´s immigration flip flop

Posted By: Drive- 7/25/2014 7:35:45 AM     Post Reply
President Barack Obama insisted for years that he had absolutely no legal authority — none whatsoever, zero, zilch — to slow deportations on a broad scale. Forget everything he’s said. Obama’s pledge to use his executive powers by the end of the summer marked both a dramatic reversal in rhetoric and a major strategic shift on immigration. The president is no longer emphasizing his own powerlessness but rather his determination “to fix as much of our immigration system as I can on my own, without Congress.”

Post reporter, other journalists

Three American citizens, including The Washington Post’s correspondent in Iran, appear to have been detained this week in Tehran, U.S. officials and the newspaper said Thursday. Washington Post foreign editor Douglas Jehl said the newspaper has received “credible reports” that correspondent Jason Rezaian and his wife, Yeganeh Salehi, were detained Tuesday evening in Tehran. It is unclear who detained them or why. “We are deeply troubled by this news and are concerned for the welfare of Jason, Yeganeh and two others said to have been detained with them,” Jehl said in a statement.

Unions Ending Forced-Dues Collection

The Supreme Court ruling that freed home healthcare workers from coercive unionization in Illinois has led to unions ceasing automatic deduction of union dues from non-members in other states. A Washington state chapter of the politically powerful SEIU announced that it would no longer force caretakers—many of whom are caring for disabled family members—to pay union dues, according to communications obtained by the Freedom Foundation, a free market think tank. Adam Glickman, secretary treasurer of SEIU Local 775, wrote a letter to an unnamed home healthcare worker saying the court’s decision in Harris v. Quinn called into question Washington’s policy toward automatic

IRS experts: Lois Lerner hard drive was

Top IRS officials told congressional investigators that Lois Lerner´s hard drive -- the one containing emails that could shed light on the IRS targeting scandal -- was irreparably damaged before it was destroyed completely in 2011. But now, investigators have had a chance to talk to the technical experts inside the IRS who actually examined Lerner´s computer, and the experts say the hard drive in question was actually just "scratched," and that most of the data on it was recoverable. The IRS computer experts also told the committee that they had recommended seeking outside help in recovering the data from Lerner´s

Here was Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) on CNN Sunday morning, talking about the missile that took down a Malaysia Airlines 777, a single act that was the same as 298 homicides. Feinstein was talking about Vladimir Putin, the Russian president who set this all in motion with his disestablishment of Ukraine, a nation that no longer belongs to Russia even though Putin seems to believe it should. “I would say, Putin, you have to man up,” Feinstein said. “You should talk to the world. You should say this was a mistake, if it was a mistake.” Feinstein’s sentiment was right.

Texas Governor Rick Perry went on Hannity tonight to discuss the illegal immigrant crisis at the US southern border. Perry shared these shocking numbers on the current crisis. “Sean, there have been over the course of the last five years, since the fall of ’08, over 203,000 individuals who have come into Texas illegally who have been booked into our county jails. Those individuals have accounted for over 3,000 homicides and over 8,000 sexual assaults. We can’t afford to wait for Washington to secure this border. We’ve had enough.”

He did not hit anyone, but he could have, the school officials told me. JJ was 4 at the time. I agreed his behavior was inappropriate, but I was shocked that it resulted in a suspension.

The president’s demeanor is worrying a lot of people. From the immigration crisis on the Mexican border to the Islamic State rising in Mesopotamia, Barack Obama seems totally detached from the world’s convulsions. When he does interrupt his endless rounds of golf, fundraising and photo ops, it’s for some affectless, mechanical, almost forced public statement. Regarding Ukraine, his detachment — the rote, impassive voice — borders on dissociation. His U.N. ambassador, Samantha Power, delivers an impassioned denunciation of Russia. Obama cautions that we not “get out ahead of the facts,” as if the facts of this case — Vladimir Putin’s

A year after news of the Monica Lewinsky scandal broke, former First Lady Hillary Clinton allegedly told a Pulitzer-prize winning journalist that it was former President Bill Clinton’s abusive mother that caused his unfaithfulness and sex addiction, a new book claims. That journalist was Lucinda Franks and while her latest book, “Timeless: Love, Morgenthau, and Me,” doesn’t have much to do about the Clintons, the part that does offers never before reported information from a 1999 interview with the former First Lady. The New York Daily News obtained parts of the book a month before its scheduled August 2014 release.

When President Obama issues executive orders on immigration in coming weeks, pro-reform activists are expecting something dramatic: temporary relief from deportation and work authorization for perhaps several million undocumented immigrants. If the activists are right, the sweeping move would upend a contentious policy fight and carry broad political consequences. The activists met privately with the President and his aides June 30 at the White House, and say in that meeting Obama suggested he will act before the November midterm elections. hey hope his decision will offer relief to a significant percentage of the estimated

Paul Ryan´s new book, opening the door to future book regulations -- or even a ban. "By failing to affirm this publisher’s constitutional right, statutory right, to disseminate a political book free from FEC conditions and regulations, we have effectively asserted regulatory jurisdiction over a book publisher,” warned Chairman Lee E.

ST. LOUIS – The nation´s third botched execution in six months offers more evidence for the courts that lethal injection carries too many risks and amounts to cruel and unusual punishment, death-row lawyers and other opponents said Thursday. Death-penalty opponents say the execution of an Arizona inmate who took two hours to die shows that state experiments with different drugs and dosages are a callous trial-and-error process. The result: Every few months, an inmate gasps, chokes and takes an unusually long time to die. "These executions are experiments on human subjects," said Cheryl Pilate, an attorney for several Missouri death-row

According to reporting from The Hill, The White House fears exactly that should the president take executive action to grant amnesty to thousands of illegals. Senior White House advisers are taking very seriously the possibility that Republicans in Congress will try to impeach President Obama, especially if he takes executive action to slow deportations. Dan Pfeiffer, a senior adviser to Obama, said Friday that the White House
