Elijah Cummings: The Democrats´ first
line of defense against Republican attacks

Washington Examiner, by Sean Lengell

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 7/10/2014 8:18:16 PM

There is no better manifestation of the rancorous partisan gridlock that has gripped Congress in recent years than the parties´ proxy war between Reps. Elijah Cummings and Darrell Issa. Issa, 60, is the firebrand Republican chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. He has hammered the Obama administration over its handling of the Benghazi attacks, the IRS and Veterans Affairs scandals, as well the troubled rollout of its heathcare.gov website and a host of other hot-button issues. It has been up to Cummings, 63, the panel’s top Democrat, to be the first line of defense for the administration

Comments:
I wonder how Lengell wrote this article without either barfing or laughing. Absolutely nothing Cummings says can be believed. Cummings says his role is "about making sure the administration and witnesses … are treated fairly..." Oh puhleeze. He forgot to say to he had to make sure the administration didn´t lie, stonewall and obstruct. s/o

So in terms of the big media, Issa is the "firebrand" and Cummings is the "top democrat".

Cummings is trying to keep the fact that he was encouraging the IRS to target conservative groups from coming out. He is as guilty as Lois Lerner.

It´s imperative that Cummings is indicted for his role in using the full weight and force of the IRS to target American citizens with differing political viewpoints.

One of the 11 House Republicans La Raza praised for not voting to end President Barack Obama´s temporary amnesty program for illegal immigrants revealed that Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) has been working "every day" behind the scenes on an amnesty bill. In a Friday appearance on MSNBC´s Jose Diaz-Balart, Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL) predicted that Congress is "going to be passing an immigration bill" in the future, "thanks to your brother, Mario Diaz-Balart." "Mario and Paul Ryan and good leaders are working every day toward that, and we hope that it will happen," she said. Ros-Lehtinen and other members of

A Brooklyn judge ordered a suspected American militant who pledged allegiance to the terrorist leader of ISIS held without bail after he was arrested at Kennedy Airport, the Daily News has learned. FBI agents nabbed Donald Ray Morgan, a 44-year-old ex-convict from North Carolina, on Aug. 2 when he returned to the United States after an eight-month stay in Lebanon, where his wife lives. Morgan, who has a previous conviction for firing a gun, had allegedly been brokering deals for military-grade weapons and ammo in his home state and was indicted for being a felon in possession of a firearm.

For a story about a poll that shows only 13% of Americans want the children in this recent flood of illegals to be allowed to stay in America, The Huffington Post wrote this headline: "Most Americans Believe Migrant Children Should Be Allowed To Remain In U.S., Poll Shows." Obviously, HuffPo didn´t like the results of the poll, but rather than simply ignore it, the left-wing outlet chose instead to lie about it: [emphasis added] The poll, conducted on July 31-Aug. 5, found that 51 percent of Americans believe the unaccompanied children being detained at the U.S.-Mexico border should be allowed to remain

TUCSON, Arizona – A cattle-ranching couple in southern Arizona hopes that dramatic hidden-camera video showing suspected drug or immigrant smugglers crossing their property will help persuade federal officials to shift resources southward to eliminate what they call a dangerous "no-man’s land” along the border. “It just confirmed what we already knew,” Jim Chilton, who runs the 50,000-acre ranch with his wife, Sue, said of the video, which was filmed this spring by a border-security advocacy group. …“We have ceded to the cartels 20 miles, 30 miles inside the United States.” For years, the Chiltons have publicly complained — even testified before Congress

Report: Hamas Executed Tunnel Diggers
PowerLine, by Paul Mirengoff    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 8/11/2014 3:36:47 PM     Post Reply
Digging tunnels for Hamas and living to tell about it is no sure thing. At least 160 Palestinian children reportedly died while performing the hazardous duty that the tunnel digging for Hamas entails. This number was reported in a pro-Palestinian journalist based on statements by Hamas officials in Gaza. But surviving the digging was only half the battle. Hamas reportedly executed dozens more diggers in the past few weeks out of fear that they would provide information to Israel about where the tunnels are located. The executions were reported on an Israeli military blog, based on statements by Palestinians involved

WASHINGTON – The government’s "Cash for Clunkers" program – pitched as a plan to jump-start U.S. auto sales and clean up the environment by getting gas-guzzling vehicles off the road -- may have been a clunker itself, according to a new economic study. Researchers at Texas A&M, in a recently released report, measured the impact of Cash for Clunkers on sales and found the program actually decreased industry revenue by $3 billion over a nine-to-11-month period. Meanwhile, the "stimulus" also cost taxpayers $3 billion. The Car Allowance Rebate System, commonly called Cash for Clunkers, was part of a 2009 economic

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Tribune Broadcasting and CBS Corporation announced Monday a comprehensive, long-term agreement that renews their existing affiliation agreements and gives the nation’s no. 1 network a new home in the Indianapolis market on Tribune Broadcasting’s WTTV. Under terms of the agreement, the CBS affiliate in the Indianapolis area will move from LIN Media’s WISH-TV and begin broadcasting on WTTV (Channel 4) on Jan. 1, 2015. “There’s nothing more valuable to a local station than programming from the no. 1 television network, and Tribune Broadcasting has been a great partner in reaching this agreement,” said Ray Hopkins, president of

FERGUSON, Mo. - The FBI is investigating possible civil rights violations after a suburban St. Louis police officer fatally shot an unarmed teenager. Cheryl Mimura, a spokeswoman for the FBI´s St. Louis field office, says the agency is looking at possible civil rights violations arising from the death of 18-year-old Michael Brown. Police say Brown was shot multiple times Saturday in a scuffle with an officer in Ferguson. Mimura says the FBI is monitoring the case and working with St. Louis County police.

What Lamar Alexander´s primary
win means for labor politics
Washington Examiner, by Sean Higgins    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 8/11/2014 2:02:11 PM     Post Reply
Sen. Lamar Alexander won Tennessee´s Republican primary Thursday, effectively ensuring he will get a third term in office and a chance to set the Senate´s agenda on labor issues if the GOP wins control of the chamber this fall. Alexander has a shot at becoming chairman of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, as polls show Republicans have a better than even chance of taking back the Senate in November. That is likely to be a big frustration for Big Labor, since Alexander has consistently voted against its agenda. The 74-year-old Alexander is an old-school lawmaker noted for his

Vacationing President Obama will host his 401st fundraiser Monday night on Martha’s Vineyard, Mass., continuing his record-setting pace that has had him collecting checks from donors at events on average every five days since becoming president. The Vineyard event is for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee at the Tisbury retreat of Boston’s Berklee College of Music President Roger Brown and his wife, Linda Mason. For the president, it’s a sign that even while he is taking some time off to golf and relax with his family, the business of raising money for his embattled party is endless. He should do well, since

A surprise change in Pentagon contractors is causing headaches for rank-and-file military personnel and their families on the move this summer. International Auto Logistics of Brunswick, Ga., last year won a $305 million bid to handle the transport of about 66,000 personal vehicles owned by service members, family members and civilian employees who move each year within and beyond the United States. Immediately after the new contract began this spring, complaints began rolling in: Cars and trucks shipped to wrong locations, delays of several weeks, vehicles damaged upon arrival and an online vehicle tracking system that typically fails.

The decision by Sen. John Walsh (D-Mont.) not to seek election in November in the wake of a plagiarism scandal is the latest piece of good news for Republicans as they strive to take control of the Senate in less than three months. Walsh’s departure from the race came in the same week that two Republican senators — Pat Roberts in Kansas and Lamar Alexander in Tennessee — defeated tea party challengers in primary fights, ensuring that every GOP senator seeking reelection would be the party’s nominee. These past seven days typified the fates of the two parties this election

Barack Obama deliberately set out to lose the war in Iraq, and he did. He defied the advice of his joint chiefs of staff to secure America’s formidable military presence and keep 20,000 troops in country, and left Iraq to its own devices and the tender mercies of Iran. In doing so, he betrayed every American and Iraqi who gave his life to create a free Iraq and keep it out of the clutches of the terrorists. Iraq is now a war zone dominated by the terrorist forces of the Islamic State, whose rise Obama’s policies fostered. Both his secretaries

Bill and Hillary Clinton are making the most of their downtime in the Hamptons. The former U.S. President and his ex-Secretary of State wife were pictured this morning enjoying a stroll on the beach in Amagansett, where they are paying $100,000 to rent an $18million five-bedroom property for three weeks. The couple, who were accompanied by their dogs as well as a Secret Service agent, were dressed in very casual clothes, with President Clinton decked out in black SoulCycle shorts and green sneakers and his wife in a bright blue muumuu and slippers.

Rosie O’Donnell, the past and future co-host of The View, on Friday reaffirmed her support of the 9/11 truther conspiracy theory. When asked by this writer if she continues to reject the idea that Muslim terrorists flew planes into buildings, O’Donnell tweeted in response, “i still do not believe the official story.” [See below for a screen shot of the tweet.] O’Donnell left The View in 2007 after battling with conservative Elisabeth Hasselbeck.

A terrifying jihadist group is conquering and butchering its way across big swaths of Iraq and Syria. Planes are falling out of the sky on what seems like a weekly basis. Civilians are being killed in massive numbers in the Israel-Gaza conflict. Others are falling prey to Ebola in West Africa. The world, in short, is falling apart. That’s how it feels, at least, to those of us who sit at a blessed remove from the death and destruction, but who are watching every bloody moment of it via cable news and social media.

Political conservatives are the greatest threat to the nation, President Barack Obama suggested in a kid-glove interview with the New York Times. “The president mused, the biggest threat to America — the only force that can really weaken us — is us,” said the interviewer, Thomas Friedman. “Our politics are dysfunctional… societies don’t work if political factions take maximalist positions,” said Obama, who repeatedly claims to be a moderate stymied by the GOP’s supposed obstructionism and radicalism. “And the more diverse the country is, the less it can afford to take maximalist positions,” Obama added.

When he was running for re-election in 2012, President Barack Obama repeatedly took credit for ending the war in Iraq and bringing all U.S. troops home from that country. At the White House on Saturday, however, when talking about his decision to use military force against the al-Qaida-related ISIS terrorist group in Iraq, Obama said removing all U.S. troops from Iraq was not “my decision.” “You know I say what I mean and I mean what I say,” Obama said in Hollywood, Florida on Nov. 4, 2012. “I said I´d end the war in Iraq. I ended it.” That statement

A 40-year political career came to a close after Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie lost his bid for a second term in a stunning primary-election defeat by a fellow Democrat and state senator who defied party leadership to challenge the incumbent. A second intraparty fight for U.S. Senate was too close to call. State Sen. David Ige, once seen as an underdog, cruised to a decisive 35 percentage point win in Saturday´s primary after being dramatically outspent by Abercrombie, who also had high-profile endorsements including President Barack Obama. Ige said his win "proves that people power can be money power, especially in Hawaii."

An Isis commander at a terrorist training camp north of Baghdad accidentally detonated a belt packed with explosives during a demonstration in front of a group militants on Monday, killing himself and 21 nearby trainees. The accident was a source of dark humour for locals, with suicide attacks in public spaces having become an almost daily occurrence in Iraq. A bomber struck a falafel shop near the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Baghdad last week, and when told of the bungled training demonstration by the New York Times, Raad Hashim, who works at a liquor store near the site of

Not every Yazidi resident in northern Iraq escaped before the Islamic State, formerly known as ISIS, captured towns in the region. The terrorist group told the people to convert to Islam or die, killed 500 of them, buried some alive, and took hundreds of girls as slaves. "We have striking evidence obtained from Yazidis fleeing Sinjar and some who escaped death, and also crime scene images that show indisputably that the gangs of the Islamic State have executed at least 500 Yazidis after seizing Sinjar," said human rights minister Mohammed Shia al-Sudani.
