Sarah Palin´s impeachment nonsense
could keep Democrats in power

Washington Examiner [DC], by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 7/12/2014 5:02:52 AM

“Without borders, there is no nation,” former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin wrote in a Breitbart op-ed this week. “Obama knows this. Opening our borders to a flood of illegal immigrants is deliberate. This is his fundamental transformation of America ... President Obama´s rewarding of lawlessness, including his own, is the foundational problem here ... It´s time to impeach; and on behalf of American workers and legal immigrants of all backgrounds, we should vehemently oppose any politician on the Left or Right who would hesitate in voting for articles of impeachment.” That this desperate cry for attention (dangling participle and all)

Comments:
Ouch.

Whatever else her talk of impeachment is, it is not nonsense.

He is guilty of many things for which impeachment is the remedy.

Why publicly take remedies off the table? "We will be pulling our troops out..., There will be no impeachment, etc. All it does is give the opposition a comfort level.

When upper management in big business has a problem with it´s CEO they´re gone. This should have happened a long time ago with Obama. I did not vote for Hope and Change but I am now. I Hope we Change the CEO of this Country. And the sooner the better.

We should lay low until we get the Senate.

Start thinking folkd? Is this a good time for this fight. It would be snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. I could not believe that Sarah Palin could come up with something so foolish and, yes, stupid.
If she can see her way clear to how we can jump the hurdle of a Democrat Senate she should explain it to us.

If impeachment is not to be used for a President such as Obama, then there is absolutely no condition under which it would ever be appropriate. It is a legitimate tool for congress to remove a president guilty of high crimes and misdemeanors. Obama certainly qualifies. The fact that politicians look at this from the perspective of political fallout is the problem. They have sworn to uphold and defend the Constitution, not their respective political party. Do what is right for America! It is your job.

By all means, let´s keep talking daily about the reasons this man should be impeached. Talk loud, talk often. Build a roar across America that even the MSM can´t ignore.

Go beyond that. Talk of the immense damage this man is causing now and in the future. Highlight his lawlessness, his folloies and his mendacity so that our next generations know what to avoid.

So the Senate Democrats block removal. HAH! Let them stand for the political diseases this man is spreading. Force them to swallow it whole.

Apparently, then, the only way for us to express our disgust for Obama´s criminal intention of bringing America to it´s knees for it´s perceived crimes is by letting him finish his second term and fade away.

Somehow, he has more than that coming to him!

Another clueless moron. I bet the majority of people in this country would love to see Obama impeached. He´s broken so many laws and told so many lies I´d rather he be arrested and charged with everything from fraud to not even being eligible to be president. Palin still scares the bejeezus out of crackpot democrats and RINO´s.

At the risk of being turned into a "Sarah Palin hater", I agree with #6. There will BE a time and place to impeach the worst "president" in the history of our country, but IMHO, it is AFTER we take back the Senate. Talk of impeachment now only helps the "corrupt-campaigner-in-chief" who is now CAMPAIGNING on being "impeached" and "sued"! Empty threats of impeachment gets his base of-lo-fo´s all excited and brings them out from under the rocks to defend their "dear leader". If we do not retake the Senate in November, there is no hope for this country. How many Americans want to see the House, as well as the Senate and the w.h. being further destroyed by demonrats?........When your enemy is destroying himself, why not stay out of the way?

No, Mr. Ed Itorial, the best way to keep Democrats in power is to refrain from challenging their lawlessness. You keep them in power by pretending their utter disregard for constitutional, limited government can be legitimately labeled "fairness" "compassion" or "helping people", even when they, like Dear Leader, smugly shred their oath of office. If a president openly flaunts border laws or is under the strongest suspicion of criminally corrupting the IRS, how is impeaching him not a political option, but a sacred duty?

I like this comment a reader posted at the end of the article: Love her or hate her, she acts on principle and not the politics of convenience or popular sentiment.

And this one: Who says the House shouldn´t act because of what the Senate may or may not do? THAT is the problem, playing politics is killing Americans. More people taking a stand is needed to right this wrong in D.C. And Palin is spot on. How could the Washington Examiner publish this absolute drivel?

And then there´s this one: What absolute imbecile wrote this article?

I agree, wait until we have the senate to start impeachment proceedings . . . but Obama had nothing to do with the children flooding across the southern border? Please. He´s the architect of that chaos. He made it clear the borders are open and children won´t be sent back. He wants the borders open so he can get as many potential welfare recipients into the country as possible. That´s just Alinsky 101. It accomplishes two things, it forces government action on the immigration bill and so amnesty for the millions of illegal immigrants already here who are all potential Democrat voters and it gets even more illegal immigrants into the country. The trick is that many of them are unaccompanied children. Who can be so cruel as to turn away unaccompanied and often sick children? In fact more than half of those children are male teenagers, likely or potential members of gangs and a mistake to treat as children. Undoubtedly in the mix are opportunistic terrorists. This is Obama´s dream team, innocent little waifs who must be taken in with a bomb in the middle. The attack on America from within and without continues.

There´s nothing wrong in theory with what Palin said,the problem is republicans don´t have a good enough case. You can´t impeach someone one with death by a thousand cuts. You need something so egregious that 60% of the country will stand behind it.Republicans can´t get 60% support for anything,nada,nothing.

Obamas simply hasn´t tripped the right wire yet and a civil war is much more likely than him being impeached. Most people are willing to wait out 2 more years.

the author of the article is right. Impeachment talk will benefit Obama. There will be a backlash against it and it will never succeed, even if the Repubs hold a senate majority. you´ll loose the support of moderates and independents. Then there´s the racial thing. You think he plays the race card to counter legitimate, polite criticism? He´ll ignite a firestorm if impeachment looms, and if Palin keeps talking about, he´ll certainly exploit it to roil the masses. Blacks are starting to get queasy about the border situation, according to some news footage I saw. Why hand them a reason to ignore it?

#8 - I agree. Someone should be talking about it, and I am happy that Sarah Palin is the one to do so.

As to the snarkiness of this article, "That this desperate cry for attention (dangling participle and all)..." I don´t remember the definition of a participle, but just wondering:

FTA: "his policies - including ON immigration - ..."

Would this be an example of a dangling preposition? Sounds kind of awkward.

The GOP establishment have taken impeachment as a remedy for obama´s lawlessness off the table. He now knows that even should the Republicans take control of the Senate nothing will happen. To me that only encourages his lawlessness and in fact will embolden him to do more destruction than previously thought possible. Once again the Constitution is being ignored by the GOP establishment. If we are unwilling to protect our borders why have a Federal government? We would be better serverd to let the States do that.

...and to the extent that he has usurped Congress´s powers, let Congress find where it put its bottle of testosterone, take a dose, and start pushing back at Obama´s encroachment on their power. Other Congresses have pushed back hard against strong presidents who treaded on their turf. The Democrats are all too willing to surrender their authority. It´s unprecedented.

Nothing wrong in talking about impeachment. Unfortunately with this crop of Republicans they can´t agree on much of anything because they are too busy fighting each other. The establishment would more readily agree with the democrats against it and both would paint conservatives as racists.

Timing is everything and although I do believe Obama is more than deserving to be impeached, we must be smart about this. It would be more effective right now if the cry for impeachment came from the people. I am all for talking it up and creating a groundswell. Keep the politicians out of it at this point. Americans are ticked off and they know what the remedy is. Let the people carry the message. Impeach Obama.

#22 properly reminded us that "The GOP establishment have taken impeachment as a remedy for obama´s lawlessness off the table."

That sounds a lot like the Obama/Kerry dream of negotiating with Iran of taking military options off the table.

Boehner moves slow - except when taking the impeachment option off the table. He strike against Sarah´s recommendation was faster than the strike of a rattle-headed copper moccasin.

#26, do a bit of research. The planning for Boehner´s legal action began many months ago. The legal experts have been working on it for a long time, narrowing it down to the most winnable issue, Obama´s changes to the healthcare law in violation of his authority. This has nothing at all to do with anything Sarah Palin might have said or done.

Impeachment will never happen of any Marxist communist elected official or just in the government bureaucracy of which we now most likely have over one half of all the bureaucracy who are communist calling themselves progressives or socialist, whatever, anything but what they are.

What is needed is enough freedom loving non communists to do as our founders said would be necessary form time to time. And, when done reduce government back to it´s founding documents limitations and put and end to "Our Constitution is open to Interpretation". It is written in plain English and means what it says. There is no, Well that would depend on what the meaning of ´is´ is.

I hear the Sunshine Patriots on this board saying: in cases where a duly-elected tyrant is guilty of abuse of power and offenses against the separation of powers, as well as mis-rule, and persecution of the People, there is NO remedy. The Constitution should be amended to read: in a contest between the tyrant and the Constitution, El Supremo must NOT be questioned, impugned, accused, criticized or impeded in any way. Guatemala is coming to us, and we are becoming Guatemala!

So the argument is for the Republican Establishment to avoid doing its job and hide behind litigation that every American citizen with an ounce of common sense knows is designed to mask their inaction and will drag on until Obama leaves office anyway.

The amazing part is that the establishment lackey thinks this is everyone first political season rodeo but not theirs. They whine that people are allowed to disagree with Sarah Palin but seem to forget that people are also allowed to disagree with them as well.

I suggest if you are too sensitive to have your comments responded to then maybe you should consider commenting where everyone will agree with you. I am sure the NRC has a comment page. Or maybe the Democrat Underground. They must have a rather rousing and energetic snarky thread dedicated to all things Anti-Palin.

Until then, suck it up buttercups! Not everything is about you and the Republican Establishment getting the senate.

If the Republican Establishment cannot stand and speak up for justice, the rule of law, and doing whats right no matter what the political climate now....

Why should we expect that to change if they actually did control the senate.

Remember Mississippi!
Got Sarah Palin?

It is a phoney Democrat argument that impeachment will help the Democrats. Why would a Democrat or Rino make such an argument unless the opposite were true? It is most likely that the Democrats fear impeachment now. If they thought it would help them then they would promote it, or at a minimum quietly hope it would proceed. Too much bluster from them is a give away They have lied about how it helped Clinton and they are lying now. Standing on principle against such blatant lawlessness will be welcomed by the American people. It is important to ignore those whose interest is in supporting the lawlessness.

Clinton won a second term not because of his impeachment, but in spite of it. The Democrat media propaganda helped him, as did the pathetic Republican candidate and party.

Certainly the people would welcome with open arms those who support their obvious need for law and order to descend upon Washington. How can that be denied? People are not nearly as stupid or passive as the Democrats would like everyone to think.

Morally, Gov. Palin is resoundingly right. It must be said that if Obama had different color skin, his final days in office would be near if not already past. That´s especially true if his latest deliberate policy that is causing over one thousand illegal aliens per day to pour over the border leads to an epidemic of, say, tuberculosis, which is highly, highly contagious. Almost everything he has done is not only wrong but dastardly, and should not only get him removed from office--it should land his tail in jail. He should not be forgiven for the human misery he´s bringing about.

And yet, the Republicans would be making a strategic mistake if they try to get rid of Obama before November. Win back the majority in the Senate first. Congress will be in session for exactly twelve more days until after ther election, and pushing hard for impeachment will bring Lofos flooding to his defense, not to mention that twelve days isn´t nearly enough time to impeach in the House. Also, it would take 67 votes in the Senate to convict Obama and remove him from office.

If a few thousand healthy people come down with TB, scabies, dengue fever, or something as bad, perhaps the movement to rid the Nation of Obama might gain sufficient momentum to make removal politically possible. Unfortunately, those who are predisposed to vote left are going to have to see with their own eyes just how bad things could be. It hasn´t gotten that bad. Yet.

The issue here seems to be that some are equating "Don´t Impeach NOW" with "Don´t Impeach."
I doubt if anyone in this forum thinks Obama should be allowed to continue his executive overreach and disregard for the Constitution until his term runs out.
But what is the harm in waiting a few months until we have regained the Senate and have more muscle in our fight? Why not let Boehner´s lawsuit run continuously in the background during the run up to the elections... and then strike?
Politics is all about timing and we are involved in a very precise chess game here. Sometimes it takes lots of subtle moves to get to the end game.

Is Sarah Palin the only national figure who spoke in favor of impeachment or does it tell us much about who they fear that she alone was/is singled out in the editorial and in the comments here? By the way, what´s good for the goose is good for the gander. The Examiner´s editorial board and establishment R´s have every right to say and write as they please but they should understand the rest of us have every right to argue and disagree with them. We also have every right to stop holding our noses and voting for your preferred moderates.

Only Congress can impeach Øvomit.

But Congress has a strong majority of Demon-RAT´s and RINO´s.

And, sadly, even if the Republicans re-take the Senate and keep the House in November, Congress will still have a strong majority of Demon-RAT´s and RINO´s.

So Sarah can say what most of us know, but it´s not going to happen.

This once-great nation is just circling the drain, waiting for that final "flush" to end our misery...

#44 cont´d.

Stephen G. Smith, editor of The Washington Examiner since February 2007, is the only journalist to hold senior-level editing positions at all three American news magazines. He was editor of U.S. News & World Report, executive editor of Newsweek, and Nation editor of Time. He was also editor of National Journal, a weekly devoted to government and politics, and founding editor of Civilization, which in 1996 won a National Magazine Award for General Excellence. Smith also worked as Washington bureau chief for the Houston Chronicle, as Washington news editor for Knight Ridder Newspapers, and as an editor and reporter for the Boston Globe and the Philadelphia Inquirer. He grew up in New York City and graduated from Penn.

http://m.washingtonexaminer.com/about
Here´s what Smith had to say " with torn feelings" about a major shakeup at the Examiner in 2013:

As for the highly competitive news field into which the Examiner is now jumping, Smith said, “It is a crowded marketplace.” The new entity will distinguish itself, he says, with “strong coverage of politics and government that doesn’t have what is a generally a liberal tilt in the media.” Right up the center of the road, in other words. Managing a publication with straight news and conservative opinion, he says, poses little “problem” for Smith, who has worked at Newsweek, U.S. News & World Report and the Boston Globe, among others.

“This is not some wild-eyed right-wing Web site, such as some that might come to mind,” says Smith. “Oddly enough, I think having a print presence is important in that respect in that it disciplines you and shows you that the information that you’re publishing both online and in print is edited, considered for fairness and accuracy and isn’t just a bunch of folks spouting off.”


http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/erik-wemple/wp/2013/03/19/washington-examiner-editor-a-day-of-torn-feelings/

Seems to me that Smith has never been really comfortable with the conservative point of view...

Funny how someone that the Kneepad Media and certain posters have deemed no longer relevant can cause such an uproar with a Facebook posting.

#31 thank you for having read my post @#29. I am well aware, though, of the practices of newspapers and editorials. I happen to have a high regard for Byron York and for Mark Tapscott. #44 and #45 shed some light on Stephen G. Smith as Editor and, thus, makes me feel my original thought was not off base.

Everybody has their sights set on November like somehow having a majority of republicans in the Senate is going to fix the whole Obama situation. It won´t. Republicans have done nothing for five years and will continue to do nothing because they are terrified of the accusation of having ruined the reign of the First Black President. It doesn´t matter that Obama has broken every major tenet of the Constitution and has screwed up America to the breaking point, he´s Black and he´s untouchable.

I have been calling for his impeachment since his first few months in office and Sarah is spot on for calling for it now.

Attorneys send letter to senators
opposing campus sexual assault bill
Washington Examiner [DC], by Ashe Schow    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 10/4/2014 5:34:48 AM     Post Reply
A group of 20 attorneys from across the country with experience handling sexual assault cases sent a letter on Thursday to the co-sponsors of the Senate’s campus sexual assault bill. The attorneys, who have all represented students accused of sexual assault who are now suing their universities for lack of due process, wrote that while sexual assault needs to be addressed, rights of the accused need to be preserved. “We are concerned that the complexity of the problem and the momentum to find a solution to the manner in which colleges handle these matters will overwhelm any effort to ensure fair treatment

Hillary Clinton: Dukakis in a Pantsuit?

Dear Reader (including those of you under quarantine), Well, this “news”letter usually begins one of two ways: serious or jocular. How about, just for a change of pace, we start off scary and see how that works out? If I were in charge of overseas contingency operations at the Islamic State or al-Qaeda, I would send as many suicide-bomber types back to America (and France and Britain) with a new weapon: Ebola. Airport scanners don’t pick it up. The incubation period is long enough to get the human biological weapons past screeners without detection. I’d tell them: Take as many connections as

Emanuel disagrees with brother

Mayor Rahm Emanuel on Friday playfully disagreed with his older brother’s provocative suggestion that it’s best to die at 75 to avoid the vexing issues of declining performance and worsening health. Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, a bio-ethicist and influential health adviser to President Barack Obama, stirred the pot in an article in the October issue of, “The Atlantic” under the headline, “Why I Hope to Die at 75.” “The mayor personally disagrees with his brother’s view on dying at 75, but he also believes it’s important to look at what Zeke was really exploring, which is how to live a full life –

AARP Asks Democrats To Remove

The AARP is asking the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee to remove them from an ad attacking Republican Michigan senatorial candidate Terri Lynn Land. The ad “Deserve” cites the AARP in attacking Land. “Michiganders deserve a Senator that will fight to preserve the Medicare guarantee, not Terri Lynn Land who would slash benefits, raise prescription drug prices, and force seniors to pay thousands more each year,” the ad states. AARP spokesman Matt Hornbeck told BuzzFeed News, “We’d appreciate if they removed AARP from the ad.” A press release sent out by AARP noted they did not authorize the DSCC to use their name

With only about four weeks until the election, and faced with the very real possibility that the Republicans will take back the Senate, President Obama and the Democrats have no choice but to try and put the best spin possible on the economy. In a “60 Minutes” interview Sunday, the president said, “I can put my record against any leader around the world in terms of digging ourselves out of a terrible, almost unprecedented financial crisis. Ronald Reagan used to ask the question, ‘Are you better off than you were four years ago?’ In this case, are you better off

Ferguson is working on an evacuation plan for local residents if Officer Wilson is not indicted. Local business owner Tasha B from Belle Butters tweeted this out Thursday morning.(Snip for graphic) The business is located in the vicinity of West Florissant, just minutes away from QuikTrip gas station that was torched in Ferguson. Ferguson city officials are working on evacuation plans if Officer Darren Wilson is not indicted in the shooting death of 18 year-old robber Michael Brown. St. Louis Public Radio reported: Ferguson officials are working on plans to alert residents in case of future unrest, according to public relations strategist Devin James, who

U.S. tourist pays Italian parking

Robert Atherton´s mantra has always been this: better late than never. As in cleaning the garage, getting a health checkup or, say, paying that parking ticket he got 50 years ago in a small town in northern Italy. Not long ago, the 67-year-old Phoenix engineering firm owner was going through a suitcase he carried on an excursion to Europe, a foray with two high school buddies in 1964. And there it was: a ticket he got for parking his motor scooter in a no-stopping zone in Lerici, a village in the oft-traveled northern region of Liguria. Atherton had thrown the ticket into

No firing squad for these

They used to deport illegal aliens. They used to shoot deserters. But that was then and this is now. So the three Afghan Army deserters who fled Camp Edwards and, after a short sojourn at a local strip club, took off for Canada, are now begging for political “asylum.” And we all know what political asylum means — instant welfare, forever. Instead of going in front of a firing squad, or at least being sent back to Afghanistan to fight the Taliban, the deserters are likely to score EBT cards, MassHealth, WIC vouchers, Section 8 housing, free translators — the full Tsarnaev, in

Tom and Jerry cartoons

Tom and Jerry cartoons on television are being accompanied by a warning that they may depict scenes of "racial prejudice". The classic cat and mouse cartoons, some made more than 70 years ago, carry a warning for subscribers to Amazon Prime Instant Video. There have been claims of racist stereotyping in the depiction of a black maid in the cartoon series. Amazon´s warning says such prejudice was once "commonplace" in US society. Tom and Jerry, once a staple of children´s television on British television, is being presented with a cautionary note about "ethnic and racial prejudices".

Tea Party revolt imperils Kansas

Kansas Tea Party supporters are threatening to sit out the state’s pivotal Senate election, potentially dealing another blow to the reelection hopes of Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.). Though schisms within the GOP base rarely have such an outsized impact on a general election contest, the lack of support from the conservative base could be devastating to the vulnerable Roberts’s chances against surging independent Greg Orman. Multiple sources tell The Hill that a group of Tea Party leaders in the state are meeting Wednesday to try to decide whether they should go to bat for the incumbent this fall or sit out of

Suit: Black donor´s sperm

A white Ohio woman is suing a Downers Grove-based sperm bank, alleging that the company mistakenly gave her vials from an African-American donor, a fact that she said has made it difficult for her and her same-sex partner to raise their now 2-year-old daughter in an all-white community. Jennifer Cramblett, of Uniontown, Ohio, alleges in the lawsuit filed Monday in Cook County Circuit Court that Midwest Sperm Bank sent her the vials of an African-American donor´s sperm in September 2011 instead of those of a white donor that she and her white partner had ordered.

The inhumane society

Americans love animals, even cats. Eight million stray dogs and cats find their way into animal shelters every year, and the lucky ones are adopted into a warm home with a loving family. Shelters are operated by small charities usually called “humane societies,” whose good deeds are funded by private generosity. The Humane Society of the United States trades on the good of others to finance a radical agenda. In May, the Humane Society and a handful of other radical animal-rights groups had to write a $15.8 million check to the Ringling Bros. Barnum & Bailey Circus for damages done. The

In her just-released memoir, 27 year-old "Girls" star Lena Dunham claims that as a 19 year-old Oberlin College student in Ohio, she was raped by a college Republican. In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow. The most sensational moment comes from the fact that "Barry" wasn´t wearing a condom. In the next chapter, Dunham backtracks with the claim that she´s an "unreliable narrator" and accuses "Barry" of rape: [I]n another essay in this book I describe a sexual encounter with a mustachioed campus Republican as the upsetting but

A recently retired Secret Service agent told MailOnline on Thursday that former director Julia Pierson´s resignation will be welcomed by the agency´s rank-and-file because ´people in the service thought she was a joke from Day One.´ He attributed her swift fall from grace to a cadre of ´p***ed off agents who had had enough´ of feeling disrespected by the service´s first female director. ´Putting her in charge was part of the [Obama] administration´s push to feminize the service after the "hookergate" nightmare,´ the agent said, referring to agents who were fired after patronizing prostitutes during a security-check trip to Colombia

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false. We discover that lapses in

It’s the “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.” A New York appeals court next week will consider whether chimps should have the same rights as human beings. The extraordinary proceeding is the result of a lengthy battle by animal-rights activists who argue that animals with human qualities — including chimps — are entitled to human protections, including freedom from captivity. Steven Wise, part of the Nonhuman Rights Project, which is leading the effort, will have to convince a panel of Albany appellate judges that a chimp name Tommy is a “legal person” to get him moved from a cage

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him. Here are the four sentences that will draw all of the attention (they come more than two thirds of the way through the speech): "I am not on the ballot this

Meghan McCain joined the dog pile on the Secret Service this week, saying she’s had “nothing but horrible experiences" with the agency and likening the agents to “glorified mall cops.” The 29-year-old author and television personality, who is also the daughter of former GOP presidential candidate Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), opened up on Pivot’s “TakePart Live” about some of her interactions with the Secret Service. "I have nothing but horrible experiences with the Secret Service,” McCain said. “One of my friends called them glorified mall cops and I don´t think that´s terribly far off. I found them cliquey.

It is the stuff that nightmares are made of, and day by day it is getting worse. The Ebola epidemic, says Dr Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organisation (WHO), is now “the greatest peacetime challenge” since the Second World War. Yet her own organisation’s tardiness, partly caused by cuts, together with reductions in--and misuse of--funds elsewhere, are largely responsible for Ebola spiralling out of control. [Snip] It’s just the beginning. At present the numbers of people infected are thought to be doubling in under 30 days--and the blue-chip US Center for Disease Control and Prevention predicts that, if Ebola

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in

ATLANTA — Texas, America’s second-most populous state behind California, saw 13 of its last abortion clinics turn away women on Friday, after a federal appeals court upheld a law that practically guarantees that only a handful of clinics will remain open in the state. The strictest-of-its-kind Texas law requires abortion providers to build hospital-grade facilities and obtain sometimes impossible-to-get hospital admitting privileges. After signed into law last year by Gov. Rick Perry (R), the law forced most of the 41 clinics operating to close. Thursday’s ruling wiped out a brief victory this summer for abortion rights proponents,

What on earth is an ohbee-guynee? Apparently it is a weird Obamaspeak pronunciation of OB/GYN (pronounced oh-bee-gee-why-en). For the president’s benefit, let me specify that means a doctor who delivers babies and takes care of the lady parts. When President Obama announced the departure of Eric Holder from his position as attorney general, he also mentioned his “good friend,” the AG’s wife, Dr. Sharon Malone, and he called her an “ohbee-guynee.” (snip) it almost seems as though someone raised in a fantasized USSR training camp for deep cover agents was inserted into the identity of Barack Obama and loosed upon

Go to a grocery store in California and buy all the milk, eggs and vegetables you want. But there’s one thing you won’t find at the checkout line, beginning July 1, 2015: Plastic bags to carry your stuff home. Gov. Jerry Brown (D) on Tuesday signed into law a ban on single-use plastic bags, making California the first state to prohibit stores from using the ubiquitous carry-alls. Shoppers will be charged 10 cents for every paper bag and heavy-duty plastic bag they use. “This bill is a step in the right direction,” Brown said in a press release announcing his approval. “It
