Rick Perry grabs the
mic on border crisis

Politico, by Katie Glueck

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 7/9/2014 5:27:47 AM

Rick Perry two-stepped his way back into the national spotlight this week, using the crisis at the border to skewer President Barack Obama while pumping up his own conservative bona fides. The Republican Texas governor, who’s mulling over a 2016 presidential bid, has appeared on national TV to trash the White House’s response to the unusual influx of children at the border. He also seized headlines when he declined to simply greet Obama at the airport during a presidential visit this week, and instead pushed for a face-to-face meeting.

Comments:
Have we heard a peep from Wendy Davis about the border chaos? Probably not. Remember, she lost the border districts in the primary.

He´d get my vote in a heartbeat.

... but, if you Perry support folks are out there, he´d have to pick up the cadence of his speech pattern. More words per minute. The LOFOs have a very short attention span. Do that and he can win.

Is any news outlet more biased than Politico?

President Perry has a nice ring to it.

I don´t really have a solid mental profile of Perry. At times he seems fine and other times sort of ham handed like calling people heartless if they´re against instate tuition for illegal college students.

On the other hand,he´s rabidly pro business which would probably lead to a 2-3 year boom in the economy.I think he´s willing to wipe the books clean on all of Obama´s reckless schemes and job punishing federal agencies.

A successful southern governor should be a shoo in as the GOP candidate.I really don´t know what´s holding people back from supporting Perry,maybe they think he´s too illegal friendly,the same thing haunting Jeb.

Re #3, my quick and friendly take on "instate tuition for illegal college students" is that, here in NJ, Community Colleges are funded mostly by NJ Sales tax. Everybody who lives here pays it, regardless of INS status. So...they get in state Community College rate.

I have other complaints about illegals, but not this one.

He´s a fine decent man and a great governor, but don´t think he will run and if he doesn´t hope the reporter stops being snarky and says she was wrong. Yeah, Politico, they´re in the tank for O!

So, Perry is "mulling over" a run for the presidency

I wonder if it´s ever been written by this asshat report that the Hildabeast is "mulling over" a run?

This is one way the do it, folks, subtly.

Thoughtless people, losers, dumbbells, etc. mull things over.

Thoughtful people, people of substance, people with gravitas, "carefully consider" running.

Just watch. Words have an effect.

5 Things to Watch for in
Alaska´s GOP Senate Primary
Real Clear Politics, by Scott Conroy    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 8/19/2014 11:59:55 AM     Post Reply
On Tuesday, Alaska Republicans will head to the polls to select a U.S. Senate nominee to run against Mark Begich, the Democratic incumbent. Begich won his seat in 2008 under unusual circumstances. His Republican opponent that year, the legendary Sen. Ted Stevens, was found guilty of federal corruption charges eight days before the general election -- a conviction that was voided a year before his death in a 2010 plane crash. But even though he was running against a convicted felon in a strong year for Democrats, Begich won the race by fewer than 4,000 votes -- demonstrating the extent of

Egypt Urges US Restraint

CAIRO - Egypt on Tuesday urged U.S. authorities to exercise restraint in dealing with racially charged demonstrations in Ferguson, Missouri - echoing language Washington used to caution Egypt as it cracked down on Islamist protesters last year. It is unusual for Egypt to criticize such a major donor, and it was not immediately clear why the government would have taken such a step. Ties between Washington and Cairo were strained after Egyptian security forces killed hundreds of Muslim Brotherhood supporters following the army´s ousting of freely elected President Mohamed Mursi in July 2013.

State trooper slams ´criminals´ in Ferguson

The Missouri state trooper in charge of directing the law enforcement response to protests that have rocked a St. Louis suburb slammed "violent agitators" who he said were using largely peaceful protests as "cover" to commit criminal acts. Missouri Highway Patrol Capt. Ron Johnson told reporters in Ferguson early Tuesday that 31 people had been arrested during a night of unrest that followed a day of largely peaceful protest. As Johnson spoke, two handguns and a Molotov cocktail that he said had been confiscated during the night by authorities lay on a table in front of him. The majority-black town of approximately

When TV Determines Guilt or Innocence

I don’t know why we are spending our hard-earned money paying taxes to support a criminal-justice system, when issues of guilt and innocence are being determined on television — and even punishment is being meted out by CNN’s showing the home and address of the policeman accused in the Ferguson, Mo., shooting. One of the big differences between Democrats and Republicans is that we at least know what the Democrats stand for, whether we agree with it or not. But, for Republicans, we have to guess. It is amazing how many otherwise sane people want Israel to become the first nation in

Obama’s War in Iraq Marks the
Return of the Global War on Terror
Daily Beast, by Eli Lake    Original Article

Barack Obama has spent most of his presidency trying to narrow Bush’s war on terror. But with the new campaign in Iraq, the big war is back. There was a time not so long ago when the White House said al Qaeda was on its heels, the tide of war was receding, and the U.S. was turning its attention to Asia. It was a happier time in terms of foreign policy. America would lead from behind and not do stupid s**t, even if that meant staying on the sidelines as Syria and, later, Iraq imploded. Then along came the Islamic State of

In the beginning of the war, Southern women wanted their men to leave — in droves, and as quickly as possible. They were the Confederate Army’s most persuasive and effective recruitment officers, shaming anyone who shirked his duty to fight. A young English immigrant in Arkansas enlisted after being accosted at a recruitment meeting. “If every man did not hasten to battle, they vowed they would themselves rush out and meet the Yankee vandals,” he wrote of Southern women. “In a land where women are worshipped by men, such language made them war-mad.” Newspapers printed gender-bending cartoons that drove the point

FERGUSON, Mo. — On one corner of a battered stretch of West Florissant Avenue, the epicenter of ongoing protests, young men pull dark scarves up over their mouths and lob molotov cocktails at police from behind makeshift barricades built of bricks and wood planks. They call the gasoline-filled bottles “poor man’s bombs.” The young men yell expletives and, with a rebel’s bravado, speak about securing justice for Michael Brown, the black teen fatally shot Aug. 9 by a white police officer, “by any means necessary.” They are known here as “the militants” — a faction inhabiting the hard-core end of

Oh, the irony. Or should I say, flat-out hypocrisy? Numerous reports have revealed that top Democratic 2016 presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton is living a lavish, over-the-top affluent lifestyle befitting — you guessed it — a mean old One-Percenter. She and her fellow Democrats pretend they’re the party of the poor, the “hammered” middle class — the 99 percent. Well sorry, Hillary, but average Americans don’t vacation in the Hamptons in $18 million homes, fly private jets, get paid more than $200,000 a pop for speeches or stay in presidential suites while traveling. The Clintons have raked in more than $100 million over the

Obama’s teetering presidency

Barack Obama’s presidency isn’t just shrinking, it’s losing support among its most critical point — its base. Less than two years ago, Barack Obama became the first Democratic president since FDR to win re-election with a popular-vote majority. Since then, his support has dropped dramatically — not just overall, but among important constituent groups. Comparing 2012 exit poll results with an Aug. 8 McClatchy-Marist nationwide poll shows how far Mr. Obama has fallen with various segments of the population. In 2012, Mr. Obama won among women 55 percent to 44 percent. Today, his approval rating among women is 41 percent, with

Two states. Two ethics panels. Two governors facing heat from prosecutors. Yet of the two, it is the one who wasn’t indicted who might have committed the more troubling offense. In Texas, Gov. Rick Perry was charged Friday with abuse of power — essentially, exercising his constitutional right to veto legislation. Perry had nixed funding for a county public-integrity unit after the local DA who heads it was busted for driving drunk (her blood-alcohol level was nearly three times the limit). The DA also abused the arresting officer. Perry refused to fund the unit unless the DA quit. Anyone who broke the law and

Over the weekend, liberal and conservative commentators achieved rare bipartisan consensus in condemning the indictment of Texas Gov. Rick Perry as “unbelievably ridiculous,” legally thin, and potentially unconstitutional. Perry is accused of threatening to veto and then actually vetoing funding for the Travis County district attorney’s office, unless it got rid of its district attorney, who—in an embarrassing incident—pleaded guilty to drunk driving and arguably got off too easily. (Snip)But we need to look very skeptically on indictments where the main allegation is that the politician engaged in perfectly legal hardball politics.

An autopsy conducted on Michael Brown, the unarmed 18-year-old fatally shot by Ferguson, Missouri, police officer Darren Wilson last Saturday, shows that Brown was shot at least six times, twice in the head and all in the front of the body. The New York Times reported the results of a private autopsy conducted by Dr. Michael Baden, who was hired by the Brown family. Baden conducted the autopsy on Sunday, according to the Times. One bullet entered the top of Brown’s skull. Four struck him in the right arm. All bullets hit Brown in the front of the body, according to

Violence continues in Ferguson, Missouri. It began on August 9 with the death of Michael Brown, an unarmed African-American teenager cut down by a white cop’s bullets. Peaceful demonstrations turned into looting, the local police went in with rubber bullets and tear gas, all hell broke loose and, eventually, Missouri’s governor pulled out the local police and sent in state officers instead. But the rioting only paused; it didn’t cease. [Snip] Observers might ask, “How can this be happening in an America that has elected a black president?” How can black kids still get killed by white cops and how

The White House has been cagey about why the president needs to be back in Washington for those discussions. He´s received multiple briefings on both issues while on vacation.

While Barack Obama may have his own personal feelings towards the death of Michael Brown and the deterioration of order in Ferguson, Mo., he took pains during his press conference today to stress that he is, first and foremost, the President of the United States, and that the investigation in Brown’s death is still in progress. “I have to be very careful about not prejudging events before these investigations are completed, because these are issues of local jurisdiction,” he said during a Q&A during a press conference, in which he announced that he was sending Attorney General Eric Holder to

Historians will have the rest of the century to unravel the mess that is the Barack Obama presidency. While they can explore these years of foreign policy disaster and domestic malaise at leisure, the rest of us have 29 more months to see just how awful things can get before he slides off to a lucrative retirement. But those who want to start the post-mortem on this historic presidency would do well to read Jackson Diehl’s most recent Washington Post column in which he identifies Obama’s hubris as the key element in his undoing.

McDonald’s has a problem. For the first time in 10 years, the company generated less revenue in a month than it did a year before, and it’s not a blip. The world’s biggest burger chain has been posting lagging results for some time, particularly in the United States.
