Schieffer: World May Be
More Dangerous Now
Than During Cold War

Washington Free Beacon, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Scottyboy, 7/17/2014 7:46:58 AM

Face the Nation host Bob Schieffer said Obama’s comment that “We live in a complex world” “may the understatement of the year”, and claimed the world may be more dangerous now than at the height of the Cold War. Schieffer listed off crises around the world, quoting Sen. John McCain (R., Ariz.), who recently said “I have never seen the world in more turmoil than it is today.” “I don’t want to be overly dramatic here tonight, Scott,” Schieffer told CBS Evening News anchor Scott Pelley, “but I think that we are in a very dangerous time right now. Even

Comments:
My TV remote defaults to CBS when turned on and I found myself watching this guy´s statements last evening. After my initial impression of being creeped out by such a dose of reality from this network, I thought perhaps this might be a signal that they are no longer going to try to put a "happy face" on the rolling disaster which is the 0bama administration.
In any event, Schieffer´s tone was ominous.

Things have yet to reach equilibrium. The world may be in conflict, but it is even close to the level of conflict associated with Obama´s hate America first, liberal ideology.

Much of the remorse liberals are just now beginning to exhibit, whether it be CBS or the cop killing by blood nation, is a reflection of their recognition that Obama is down for the count and with him their befuddled, clouded dream of liberal Nirvana.

What makes the world dangerous is morons like Bob Schieffer running around loose and having their heads talking to us on TV.

Of course it is more dangerous. Back then most of the communists were on the other side of the world, and the ones here were in constant fear of discovery.
Now the communists are not only in the open, they are running the place. Freedom is in dire peril from within and very few people with power are willing to do anything about it. (Look how many are shying away from impeachment.)
We are in very dangerous times indeed.

First evidence, Bob, that the world was becoming more dangerous was the incident involving the black panthers at the Philadelphia polling station - but you were on vacation and didn´t hear about it.

Why Officer Wilson Probably Won’t Go to Jail
Politico Magazine, by William Yeomans    Original Article
Posted By: Scottyboy- 8/24/2014 9:37:27 PM     Post Reply
As Michael Brown is laid to rest on Monday, questions remain about the police shooting that took the life of the unarmed African-American teenager some two weeks ago. Was Brown savagely and unjustifiably gunned down by white police Officer Darren Wilson, as some contend? Did Wilson—who reportedly sustained some kind of facial injury during an altercation with Brown—act appropriately in the heat of a confrontation in which Brown reportedly reached for the officer’s gun. Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. took the unusual step of travelling to Ferguson to coordinate a Justice Department investigation into the shooting, which was already

Point of No Return: Democrats Want
Definitive Signal from Hillary Clinton
NBC News, by Mark Murray    Original Article
Posted By: Scottyboy- 8/24/2014 2:33:03 PM     Post Reply
Analysis: Hillary Clinton isn’t simply dipping her toes into the 2016 presidential waters; it looks more like she’s sizing up for a somersault – with a full twist – off a diving board. But if she ends up deciding not to jump in, Democrats want an answer sooner rather than later. In the past few months, Clinton has concluded a big book tour with dozens of news interviews; distanced herself (either in small or substantial ways) from her party’s currently unpopular president; and is now heading next month to Iowa, which traditionally holds the first presidential nominating contest.

Gov. Brown approves a law to let

Even though it´s currently illegal, many Bay Area restaurants already allow dogs to sit with their owners in outdoor patio areas, but now Gov. Jerry Brown has officially signed the practice into law effective New Year´s Day. This new law would only allow dogs to sit at an outdoor patio area when the dog owner is dining, except for service dogs. Dogs would still not be allowed inside the restaurant and certainly not in the kitchen.

The Islamic Society of North America or ISNA, the nation´s largest Muslim group, will hold its 51st annual convention in Detroit´s Cobo Center Friday through Sept. 1, and will feature former President Jimmy Carter as the keynote speaker. President Carter will talk on the subject of his latest book, A Call to Action: Women, Religion, Violence, and Power, at a luncheon Aug. 30.

Three White House officials will attend the funeral Monday of Michael Brown, the unarmed Ferguson teen shot and killed by a police officer Aug. 9. According to a White House official, Broderick Johnson, who heads the White House’s My Brother’s Keeper Task Force, will attend the service along with Marlon Marshall, a St. Louis native who attended high school with Brown’s mother. Heather Foster, who works with Marshall in the White House Office of Public Engagement, will also be in the pews at Brown’s funeral. Brown was shot six times by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson.

Hamas´s Qatar-based leader Khaled Meshaal has objected to Israel Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu´s comparison between the Palestinian Islamist terror group and the Islamic State, or ISIS. Speaking Thursday to visiting US Congressman Darrell Issa (R-CA), Netanyahu said Israel was fighting the same war against Islamist terrorism as the US and other countries current working to combat the spread of the brutal Islamic State. "We face the same Islamist network and we have to fight it together," Netanyahu stated. "Hamas is ISIS, ISIS is Hamas."

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., doesn´t know what else she can do to convince you people she´s not running for president. A darling of liberal activists, Warren has said repeatedly she won´t seek the White House in 2016, but her supporters have been undeterred, setting up a Ready for Warren super PAC to raise money and encouraging the senator to mount a bid. On Friday, though, Warren took the unusual step of having an attorney send a letter to the Federal Election Commission disavowing any involvement in the grassroots effort to draft her into the 2016 race.

Rick Perry ticked the countries off one-by-one, his list of what he terms President Barack Obama´s foreign policy failures. Speaking at a rally for New Hampshire Republican activists, the Texas governor touched on the execution of journalist and Granite State native James Foley at the hands of the Islamic extremist group ISIS. "Our hearts are heavy today, because of a young man from Rochester. A hero. A man who stood in the gap to reveal the evil that ISIS is all about," said the potential presidential candidate.

Earlier in August, residents and visitors of Martha’s Vineyard saw an unusual creature cohabitating with the Island’s native species: a seven-foot tall polar bear. The bear, who goes by the name of Frostpaw, is the face of Center for Biological Diversity’s campaign to fight climate change. (snip) He was trying to deliver masks and snorkels to the First Family — including Bo the dog — to encourage the President to take action against sea level rise and global warming. Attached to the masks and snorkels were flyers associated with the center’s Hope You Can Swim campaign, which explains the purpose

Global warming slowdown
´could last another decade´
BBC News [UK], by Matt McGrath    Original Article

The hiatus in the rise in global temperatures could last for another 10 years, according to new research. Scientists have struggled to explain the so-called pause that began in 1999, despite ever increasing levels of CO2 in the atmosphere. The latest theory says that a naturally occurring 30-year cycle in the Atlantic Ocean is behind the slowdown. The researchers says this slow-moving current could continue to divert heat into the deep seas for another decade. However, they caution that global temperatures are likely to increase rapidly when the cycle flips to a warmer phase. Continue reading the main story “

Former U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney strongly criticized President Barack Obama on Wednesday night for going golfing immediately after delivering a statement on the beheading of American journalist James Foley. "Every day we find new evidence that he’d rather be on the golf course than he would be dealing with a crisis that’s developing rapidly in the Middle East," Cheney declared during an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity. Earlier in the day, Obama took a break from his vacation in Martha´s Vineyard to give an angry and emotional speech condemning the jihadist group ISIS and praising Foley´s career

Local Winooski, Vermont restaurant Sneakers Bistro has removed a sign that read, “Yield Sneakers Bacon” citing opposition from a Muslim community member and safety concerns. The sign was put up as part of a city program that allows businesses to post an advertisement in an area where they have helped maintain city flowerbeds. The sign that read “Yield Sneakers Bacon” was removed after a woman, identifying herself as a Muslim, posted in an online community forum, stating she was personally offended by the sign, according to a WPTZ News report.

Sometimes a round of golf is just a round of golf. And sometimes it reveals the ­essence of a man. President Obama’s decision to hit the links and yuk it up with pals immediately after speaking about the beheading of James ­Foley was no ordinary mistake. Nor was it a simple gaffe. The decision continues to cause an uproar because, like an X-ray, there is no escaping the image. It shows there is no there there. With even his media praetorian guard appalled, the golf outing is sparking a wider understanding that Obama is hollow, empty of the routine qualities Americans expect from

At last, we know the reason why comedy writers don’t make fun of President Obama much. It turns out the man is completely unmockable. We learn this from Jim Downey, the longtime “Saturday Night Live” specialist in political japery. “If I had to describe Obama as a comedy project, I would say, ‘Degree of difficulty, 10 point 10,’” the writer says in the expanded new edition of the “SNL” oral history book, “Live from New York.” “It’s like being a rock climber looking up at a thousand-foot-high face of solid obsidian, polished and oiled,” Downey says. “There’s not a single thing to grab

And seven trillion rounds ago, our forecaddies brought forth on this continent a new playground, conceived by Robert Trent Jones, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal when it comes to spending as much time on the links as possible — even when it seems totally inappropriate, like moments after making a solemn statement condemning the grisly murder of a 40-year-old American journalist beheaded by ISIL.

According to a new Sunday Times report by Toby Harden, "Pentagon sources said Foley and the others might well have been rescued but Obama, concerned about the ramifications of US troops being killed or captured in Syria, took too long to authorise the mission." It´s claimed that Obama was concerned about his administration being Carterized had the mission failed. For President Barack Obama the decision to send in the Night Stalkers was an agonising one.

We are not engaged in a religious war. This is not a confrontation between Islam and the West. To start from that premise is to place Isil (which should not be called by its presumptive title “Islamic State”) on precisely the ground it wishes to occupy. [Snip] The contest is not modern liberal democracy versus the Dark Ages. This is to impose meaning on what is, in truth, meaningless. There is nothing coherent or comprehensible at the heart of the homicidal Isil frenzy. It is just what it looks like: psychopathic nihilism. Indeed, it may be worse than counterproductive to

America has a deficit of workers. Willing workers. Capable workers. Skilled, or at least semi-skilled workers, who can do a job and do it well. There are at least one million jobs that go begging day after day if only employers could find workers to fill them. This probably seems hard-to-believe. After all, how can America have a worker shortage when we have about 18 million Americans who are unemployed or underemployed? When the real unemployment rate is 12 percent?

Rep. Paul Ryan said the notion that the House could have unilaterally stopped Obamacare through a government shutdown last year was not a plausible idea to sell the country on. The Wisconsin Republican was addressing a passage from his new book on CBS’s “Face the Nation” in which he described last year’s push toward a government shutdown — in which House conservatives unsuccessfully tried to defund Obamacare — as a “suicide mission.” The purpose of the passage in the book is to try to unify the party, he said, noting that he held back a bit more at the time with party unity in mind. “I don’t think we can succeed if all we do is
