Hillary Clinton Crosses the Bridge
Vanity Fair, by Craig Brown*

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 7/14/2014 9:18:26 AM

Bridges and tunnels, tunnels and bridges. For the future of our world, we must learn to recognize the difference between the two. I spent a lot of time over the years, both as First Lady and U.S. secretary of state, thinking about ways to understand those differences. I hold firm to my opinion that tunnels are, by and large, designed for traveling beneath things. Bridges, by contrast, are designed for traveling above things. And, like many Americans, I still hold strong to that great belief. With tunnels and bridges, it’s not that the more you have of one the less

For the smartest woman alive, she sure is a dumb bunny. Didn´t she ever play with her brother´s Lincoln Logs or Erector Set? I couldn´t wait for my brother to leave for school each morning so I could built bridges AND tunnels with his toys. PIAPS is an idiot. And so are the people who plan to vote for her.

This just smacks of her clinical narcissism. She actually believes she can just mouth any words together that might or might not sound profound, so long as she prefaces them with her trademark, "You know...." and everyone will think they are listening to the Sage of the Ages.

The thing that clouds my concept of America´s future is, with this idiotic electorate, she´s probably right.

´Security Moms´ Are Back—and
That´s Bad News for Democrats
Atlantic Wire, by Peter Beinart    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 9/18/2014 4:49:42 AM     Post Reply
Suddenly, it feels like 2002. Democrats got creamed in midterm elections that year because the women voters they had relied on throughout the Clinton years deserted them. In 2000, women favored Democratic congressional candidates by nine points. In 2002, that advantage disappeared entirely. The biggest reason: 9/11. In polls that year, according to Gallup, women consistently expressed more fear of terrorism that men. And that fear pushed them toward the GOP, which they trusted far more to keep the nation safe. As then-Senator Joe Biden declared after his party’s midterm shellacking, “soccer moms are security moms now.” Unfortunately for President Obama,

What coalition? No ‘ally’ is putting
skin in anti-ISIS ‘alliance’
New York Post, by Benny Avni    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 9/18/2014 4:42:12 AM     Post Reply
Coalition? What coalition? Arab would-be allies in the fight against the Islamic State say (at best): Maybe. Egypt, the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Jordan and other US-allied Arab regimes have sufficient reason to fight the jihadis that threaten their leaders’ hold on power. But they no longer trust America to lead them: We’ve let them down too many times these last five years. Qatar, on the other hand, has long supported extremists nearly as bad as ISIS (or ISIL as governments worldwide for some reason prefer). Yes, it’s recently started to at least pretend that it’s ready to expel the Muslim Brotherhood leaders and

‘CATALIST’: Obama’s Database for
Fundamentally Transforming America
PJ Media, by J. Christian Adams    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 9/18/2014 4:37:50 AM     Post Reply
The Democrats and the institutional left have a new political tool that allows them virtually to ignore moderates yet still win elections. This tool, the Catalist database, was employed in the 2012 election. That election defied conventional wisdom: Mitt Romney sought and won independent voters overwhelmingly, but still lost. If you wondered why the conventional wisdom about independents and moderates didn’t seem so wise in 2012, the answer is Catalist. Beyond winning elections, Catalist also allows the Democrats to turn the policy narrative upside down and suffer no political consequence for implementing radical policies which appeal to their base. The Obama administration’s

Gov. Perry Criticizes
Mexico Border ´Failure´
KXAS [Ft. Worth, TX], by Jim Vertuno    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 9/17/2014 5:38:24 PM     Post Reply
In a sharp criticism of Mexico´s "failure" on immigration and crime policies, Texas Gov. Rick Perry on Wednesday invited President Enrique Pena Nieto to visit his state and observe law enforcement efforts on the U.S. side of the border. Pena Nieto recently criticized Perry´s highly-publicized deployment of National Guard troops to the border as "unpleasant" and "reprehensible." Perry, mulling running for president in 2016, fired back Wednesday with a letter to Pena Nieto saying Mexico isn´t doing enough to control immigration along its border with Central America or to control drug cartels. "When it comes to the safety and security of Texans, I

   

 



 
Rubio: We Need Romney’s Foreign Policy

The Florida senator is warning about the threat of big powers like Russia and the need for a bigger U.S. military. If that sounds a lot like Romney to you, you´re paying attention. Senator Marco Rubio has a foreign policy vision that looks a lot like what Mitt Romney put forward in his 2012 presidential campaign. It wasn’t so long ago that Obama was ridiculing Romney for calling Russian America’s number one geopolitical foe and complaining that the Navy had fewer ships any time since World War I. “Well, Governor, we also have fewer horses and bayonets because the nature of our

Barack Obama’s dirty war
Politico, by Josh Gerstein    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 9/17/2014 5:25:28 PM     Post Reply
How dirty is President Barack Obama prepared to get in the war to defeat ISIL? Beating back the brutal Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant may require cozying up to unsavory groups in Syria — including some currently affiliated with the Al-Qaeda-linked Nusra Front — and may collide with existing law if the groups the U.S. wants to train or co-opt have murky human rights records, former officials and analysts say. Some lawmakers are questioning the wisdom of such alliances, though that doesn’t seem to be slowing down momentum on congressional approval of Obama’s plan to take on ISIL.

Arming ´moderates´: a cautionary tale
Washington Examiner [DC], by Pete Hoekstra    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 9/17/2014 11:39:41 AM     Post Reply
Not long ago, Washington considered arming and training rebels engaged in what would become a fierce civil war. Nations with an invested stake in the outcome discussed whether to support a perceived David against a corrupt Goliath in a strategically located region of the world. The consequences would have broad ramifications that would tip the scale in favor of one side. The issue wasn’t one of conviction. It was a matter of unanswered questions about an uncertain ally. The negotiations to which I refer could be mistaken as relating to arming the moderate Free Syrian Army against the oppressive regime of President Bashar

The Scottish Disease

On Thursday, Scotland will decide whether it intends to remain part of the United Kingdom or go its own way as a separate nation. Inspired, Catalonia has renewed its campaign for independence from Spain. Earlier this week, it became clear that San Francisco venture capitalist Tim Draper’s “Six Californias” initiative — which would have seen the state subdivided into six new polities, in effect allowing affluent Silicon Valley to secede from the state’s poor interior and the vulgarians down south — would not proceed to the ballot, having failed to secure sufficient signatures in the petition stage.

Clinton’s bubble separates her from voters
McClatchy Newspapers, by David Lightman    Original Article

INDIANOLA, IOWA — Hillary Clinton is trapped in a bubble. She’s been guarded by the Secret Service since 1993. She hasn’t driven a car since 1996. When she shakes hands with voters _ as she did Sunday in Iowa _ she’s often separated from them by metal barriers. In some ways, Clinton is a prisoner of her own success. The Secret Service protection has been there since she became first lady in 1993, and it will follow her the rest of her life. In other ways, she has fed the sense that she is removed from the lives of everyday Americans, such

10 Ways Obama Has Failed as President

A poll released last week had some pretty bad news for congressional Democrats heading into the midterm elections. But buried in the poll numbers was a figure that just might constitute an even more important turning point. Respondents were asked: “On balance, do you feel that Obama’s presidency so far has been more of a success or more of a failure?” More than half, 52%, said “failure.” Only 42% said “success.” And it gets worse. Only 22% were “strongly” convinced Obama is a success, while 39% are strongly convinced he’s a failure. And the American people have pretty much made up

Everybody knows there is no real leader in the race for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination. But ask voters an open-ended question — Whom do you want to be the nominee? — and the range of answers can be breathtaking. That´s what I did in an unplanned and totally unscientific way on my Twitter feed Tuesday afternoon. On Monday evening I posted a piece about Mike Huckabee´s preparations for another run for the nomination in 2016. Twitter reaction to Huckabee was almost entirely negative: Nobody, or at least nobody reading my tweets on a Tuesday afternoon, seemed to like the idea

The nightly news shows made it very clear this week that they’ve gotten behind Hillary Clinton’s expected 2016 campaign for president. The network news programs gave Mrs. Clinton’s trip to Iowa the gushing, royal treatment on Sunday, repeating it again on Monday, as she appeared before a throng of cheering Democrats in Iowa, where her party’s first presidential nominating caucuses will be held. The coverage of her speech, which was loaded with empty platitudes and little else that was newsworthy, bordered on the worshipful. That she has the 2016 Democratic nomination virtually sewed up at this juncture tells us everything we need

President Barack Obama has declined to attend a dedication ceremony in October for a new memorial honoring American veterans who have been disabled fighting for their country in wars, according to sources close to the event. The American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial (AVDLM), the first such memorial of its kind, is set to be dedicated during a ceremony on Oct. 5 near the National Mall in downtown Washington, D.C.

First Lady Michelle Obama has made healthy eating and exercise her signature issue. But, a recent study published by the Sage Journal found that her “elitist” advice actually “shames poor and middle class mothers.” The College Fix added that the study found that Michelle Obama’s healthy eating program is also sexist. It’s also sexist, the study’s authors suggest, noting that “intentionally or not, it places the burden of a healthy home-cooked meal on women.” Sage Journals published the study by North Carolina researchers Sarah Bowen, Sinikka Elliott and Joslyn Brenton. Here are a few of the findings: Magazines such as Good Housekeeping and

President Barack Obama unveiled his plan to tackle the Ebola crisis in West Africa on Tuesday, promising to do far more to tackle the deadly virus he said could result in "hundreds of thousands of people infected" without US intervention. "More than 2,400 men, women, and children are known to have died and we strongly suspect that the actual death toll is higher than that," Obama said in a speech at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, Georgia. "Hospitals, clinics, and the few treatment centers that do exist have been completely overwhelmed." The president was particularly dire

Democrats are now (very slightly) favored to hold the Senate majority on Nov. 4, according to Election Lab, the Post´s statistical model of the 2014 midterm elections. Election Lab puts Democrats´ chances of retaining their majority at 51 percent -- a huge change from even a few months ago when the model predicted that Republicans had a better than 80 percent chance of winning the six seats they need to take control. (Worth noting: When the model showed Republicans as overwhelming favorites, our model builders -- led by George Washington University´s John Sides -- warned that the model could and

The Obama administration is preparing to introduce major steps to phase out production of a popular chemical coolant used in refrigerators and air conditioners, citing growing evidence that the substance is contributing to the warming of the planet. The White House will announce on Tuesday a series of voluntary commitments by some of the country’s largest chemical firms and retailers to move rapidly away from R-134a and similar compounds used in nearly every office, home and automobile in the country, according to current and former U.S. officials familiar with the effort.

Bill Clinton never inhaled. Rush Limbaugh says he never smoked it. Marco Rubio won´t answer whether he ever did smoke pot but Sarah Palin admitted she smoked it in her youth and didn´t like it. Those pushing to have more states legalize marijuana consider this drug rather harmless, medically beneficial and liberal politicians consider this issue one that will attract voters. I don´t blame Rubio for not discussing whether he indulged n his youth or not. He is a public official with young children and carries a different responsibility than the rest of us.

On Monday, the 50-year-old politician was photographed by paparazzi looking fresh-faced without any cosmetics on. But instead of getting mad about the slyly snapped no-makeup shots, the former Alaska governor took to Facebook to joke about the incident.
