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...

#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.

Obama’s friendly fire
New York Post, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 7/31/2014 9:05:32 AM     Post Reply
How much better if the White House had said nothing, instead of issuing a fuzzy statement Wednesday condemning the shelling of a UN school for Palestinians in Gaza. It matters little that the National Security Council’s spokeswoman, Bernadette Meehan, did not explicitly accuse Israel of the bombing. Or that she went on to condemn those “hiding weapons in UN facilities.” The world understands the game. On the same day the White House issued its condemnation, the UN secretary general was blaming Israel for a “shameful” attack on “sleeping children.” Now, anything suggesting Israel and Hamas operate on the same moral plane is a victory

From the midweek edition of the Morning Jolt: (Snip) Megan McArdle spits hot fury over the news that Mythology Entertainment is making a movie about the Rathergate memo scandal . . . based upon the book of CBS producer Mary Mapes, who contended that the story was true and that those bloggers in pajamas who kept proving it wrong — including, ahem, me — are all mean and liars and right-wing maniacs and so on. Mapes will be played by Cate Blanchett. Robert Redford is playing the man who reported the story on air, CBS News anchor Dan Rather. I’ll give

Does prostitution ‘make more

Turning tricks makes more financial sense than stocking shelves at Walmart. At least, that´s what some current and former members of the sex industry are arguing. In an article for Nerve.com titled “Why Prostitution Can Make More Sense Than Working at Walmart,” author and ex-escort David Henry Sterry says that he was drawn into the world´s oldest profession when he was a broke 17-year-old in Hollywood. Sterry says he was unable to support himself working at a fried chicken restaurant and was told he could make "real money" — $100 an hour — as a rent boy. "Economically, the only reason a person would

OAK RIDGE — It’s OK to talk Southern and work at a national lab — after all. Oak Ridge National Laboratory has cancelled plans for a “Southern Accent Reduction” class because of objections from lab staff members, some of whom said they were offended by the training opportunity. ORNL’s human resources department early last week distributed a registration notice for the six-week course to be taught by Lisa Scott, “a nationally certified speech pathologist and accent reduction trainer.” Here was the pitch to get employees to sign up for the speech rehab program: “Feel confident in a meeting when you need to speak

FRIDAY HARBOR, Wash.—A stiff breeze blows over sun-dappled waves in this pristine vacation spot just south of the U.S. border with Canada. And on that breeze wafts a scent, the starting point for two detectives about to spend a long day trolling the water for elusive evidence. One rides in a kennel. It is a unique partnership: Elizabeth Seely, a 30-year-old wildlife biologist, and a black Lab named Tucker. Ten years ago, Tucker wandered the streets of North Seattle, undernourished, frightened and likely destined to be euthanized as an unwanted pet. Instead, Tucker got lucky. Rescued by a shelter, he was turned over

America´s Poorest Shoppers Are
Putting Discount Stores Out Of Business

Discount stores are slowly dying. Yesterday, Dollar Tree announced it would buy Family Dollar, a chain that is in the process of closing hundreds of stores and firing workers. Other discount stores have been struggling as well, writes Heidi Moore at The Guardian. Fashion discounter Loehmann´s filed for bankruptcy, while Wal-Mart´s sales have declined for the past five quarters. "There’s just not enough money deployed by American families to keep all the discount chains in business," Moore writes. Dollar stores saw their heyday during the recession, when middle-class shoppers came to buy smaller, cheaper packages of household necessities like toilet paper. While middle-class shoppers have

Alaska’s language challenge: translating tax

Alaska is currently wrestling with a native language challenge: how to translate the state’s longest tax measure for local populations? Due on the public ballot in August, the tax forms and informational pamphlet that accompanies the measure are some 50 pages long - and both documents must be translated into Yup’ik, Inupiak, Siberian Yupik, Koyukon Athabascan and Gwich’in Athabascan - the local dialects in the region. “The ballot measure to repeal the state’s oil tax cut might be the thorniest issue Alaskans ever vote on, but imagine trying to understand terms like ‘gross revenue exclusion’ and ‘progressivity’ in Yup’ik and other

President Barack Obama played at Congressional Country Club on Saturday in Bethesda, Md., with the hosts of ESPN´s "Pardon the Interruption," Michael Wilbon and Tony Kornheiser. It appears the Commander in Chief doesn´t fully have command of his golf ball. Pace Doherty posted this photo to Instagram on Sunday with the caption "Obama played at Congressional yesterday, and I just found this in the woods off one. Looks like he´s off line again. 44th."

ST. PAUL, Minn. — Jurors in former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura´s defamation lawsuit against American Sniper author Chris Kyle went home for the day Monday after hours of deliberations during which they told the judge at one point they didn´t think they could reach a unanimous verdict. U.S. District Judge Richard Kyle told them to keep trying, and they continued their fifth day of discussions for roughly four more hours before breaking. Late in the afternoon, attorneys for both sides conferred privately with the judge. They would not say afterward what they discussed but said that the jury would be back

Employer health insurance
mandate a political orphan
Los Angeles Times, by Noam N. Levy    Original Article

When President Obama signed the Affordable Care Act, its requirement that large employers provide health coverage or pay a penalty seemed to many supporters a key pillar of the effort to guarantee health coverage to Americans. Four years later and after repeated delays, the so-called employer mandate has become something of an orphan, reviled by the law´s opponents and increasingly seen as unnecessary by many of its backers. Twice in the last two years, the Obama administration has put off the penalties, citing difficulties enforcing the mandate. House Republicans plan to sue the president, largely over his suspension of the mandate, saying

llary Clinton’s book, Hard Choices, has been something of a hot topic lately, although not in a positive sense. With abysmal sales and a clear message throughout the book which implies she will be running for President in 2016, it is safe to say that Hillary has been having a “hard time” promoting her book. Here is a list of some of the most brutal - albeit hilarious – comments found on Amazon.com’s review page for Hard Choices. Enjoy! 1.) Some found alternative uses:

Bismarck on the Potomac

President Barack Obama, who in his political dotage is enthusiastically getting in touch with his inner Otto von Bismarck to such an extent that we half expect him to start sporting a walrus mustache and a pickelhaube, on Saturday treated the ailing republic to another lecture on the theme of “economic patriotism,” by which he means an arrangement under which companies adopt tax strategies that maximize the amount of money they send to President Obama and his colleagues to dispose of as they see fit. He demanded that companies “embrace an economic patriotism,” presumably one defined by Barack Obama, rather

Like many on the right, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer is politically opposed to impeaching President Barack Obama. But on Tuesday, he declared that legally, the rumored White House order granting amnesty to as many as 6 million illegal immigrants “would be an impeachable offense” — and Obama’s talk of impeachment may be a way to preempt that pushback. Krauthammer spoke with Fox News’s Bret Baier on a panel with The Hill’s A.B. Stoddard and Fox News contributor Juan Williams. The group discussed the impeachment buzz swirling around Washington, which most observers agree is being ginned up by Democrats eager for

Israel unleashed its heaviest bombardment in its three-week-old campaign against Hamas in Gaza on Tuesday as the Obama administration battled the growing perception among Israelis that Secretary of State John F. Kerry is a hapless bumbler in search of a cosmetic truce. Diplomatic efforts remained stalled despite a death toll that Palestinian officials said rose above 1,200 on Tuesday. The shadowy leader of the Hamas military wing said his group will not cease fire until an economic embargo is ended and other demands are met. After his latest round of mediation failed to achieve a cease-fire, Mr. Kerry has been

Javier Bardem did not hold back on his feelings of disgust regarding the escalating violence in the Israeli-Palestine conflict. In an open letter sent out to the Spanish media over the weekend, he called Israel’s actions against Gaza a “genocide” and said he was outraged and ashamed by the "brutality" of the attacks. “In the horror happening right now in Gaza there is NO place for distance or neutrality,” Bardem wrote in the letter. “It’s a way of occupation and extermination waged against a people with no means, confined in a minimum territory, with no water, and where hospitals, ambulances and children

President Obama demanded that Israel agree to a one-sided cease-fire during a heated phone conversation with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, according to a report aired on Israeli TV Tuesday. Both leaders quickly denounced the purported transcript of their private discussion as fake. But the TV channel that obtained it, state-run Channel 1, stood by its account. In one bitter exchange, Obama declared that Qatar and Turkey — Hamas’ biggest international supporters — would mediate with the terrorists on Israel’s behalf, according to the TV channel. “I trust Qatar and Turkey. Israel is not in the position that it can choose its mediators,” the president

Washington – During an awards ceremony at the White House, President Barack Obama whispered in the ear of superstar musician Linda Ronstadt that he once had a crush on her. The President admitted to the crowd afterwards that, "I told Linda Ronstadt I had a crush on her back in the day " Ronstadt joined Obama on stage, along with 11 other recipients of the 2013 National Medal of Arts. No word from the singer of such hits as "You´re no good," "Desperado," "It´s so easy," and "Blue Bayou," on what she said back to the President. Obama also thanked

Malaysian politician says that including dogs in opening ceremony was ´disrespectful to Malaysia and Muslims´. The Commonwealth Games, which opened last week in Glasgow, Scotland in the presence of the Queen, was, like all sporting events these days, ushered into existence to the accompaniment of a lavish and visually impressive opening ceremony. But amidst the dancing mechanical giants and gay kisses, the organizers also sought to celebrate Scottishness by having each team led out by Scottie dogs wearing tartan coats embroidered with the name of the team.

First lady Michelle Obama embraced her family’s African roots in a speech today, telling a young audience that the ´blood of Africa´ runs through her veins as she urged changing traditional beliefs on the worth of educating women. Her husband had shied away from discussing his African heritage in his own remarks to the 500 Africans finishing a six-week Washington leadership fellowship on Monday, referencing his Kenyan father only once in the question-and-answer session. But Michelle Obama said as an African American woman, her discussion with the African youth was ´deeply personal´. ´The roots of my family tree are in

Inside Hoboken’s combined junior-senior high school is a storage closet. Behind the locked door, some mothballed laptop computers are strewn among brown cardboard boxes. Others are stacked one atop another. Dozens more are stored on mobile computer carts, many of them on their last legs. That’s all that remains from a failed experiment to assign every student a laptop at Hoboken Junior Senior High School. It began five years ago with an unexpected windfall of stimulus money from Washington, D.C., and good intentions to help the district’s students,

Former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura joined the “CBS This Morning” co-hosts Wednesday to discuss the details of his legal battle with a former U.S. sniper. On Tuesday a federal jury awarded Jesse Ventura $1.8 million in his case against Kyle’s widow. The former governor told CBS: “I’m already damaged. I can’t go to a SEAL reunion anymore. That was the one place I felt safe. I can’t go there anymore. I’ll be looking over my shoulder now wondering who’s going to come after me next. And, so don’t think I come out of this unscathed. All I wanted to do was clear my name and it has nothing to do with a widow or anything like that.

Do not eat or drink in front of Muslims, and learn more about their religion. That’s the directive that has gone out to active duty military personnel at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences, a Department of Defense medical and graduate school in Bethesda, Md. The brigade commander sent an email to military personnel at the facility last month – just before the start of Ramadan – advising them to show respect to Muslim colleagues. “This is a period of great personal restraint and commitment in addition to renewed focus on worship,” Brigade Commander Col. Kevin Glasz wrote. “I’d like to

Stop just hatin’ all the time. C’mon, let’s get some work done together.” Obama said that he still had a lot of work to do, including spending on roads and bridges, resources for fighting wildfires, and addressing the border crisis. “I know they’re not that happy that I’m president, but that’s ok,” he added. “I’ve only got a couple years left, let’s get some work done.
