Being informed and fashionable
is natural for women

Washington Post, by Alyssa Mastromonaco

Two months ago, I left the White House after six years of working for President Obama. As anyone who’s had the privilege of serving a sitting president can tell you, the job is both tremendously rewarding and incalculably demanding. No advanced degree or job experience truly prepares you for the tidal wave of responsibility and the sheer gravity of history that beckons each day. The Arab Spring. Newtown. Hurricane Sandy. The Affordable Care Act. It is one of those jobs that never really leaves you. Until it’s time to leave. Working at the White House naturally invites interest from the media, and

More proof that this administration is the most moronic one ever

She writes like she´s a twenty-something woman, so I was surprised when I checked and saw she´s 38.

And they [women´s magazines] were the first to dispense with the requisite work-life balance questions men invariably ask powerful women in favor of far more revealing inquiries about how they got to the top and what the view was like once ensconced there.

According to Wiki: Mastromonaco is married to David Krone, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid´s chief of staff.

Can women be called callow or is that reserved for men?

What a callow woman. And as callow persons often are, she is a crashing bore. The affliction of youth that involves one´s being an expert in everything, in knowing the world´s secrets that no one knew before. Golly, gee!!!

I have seen valley girls who are more lucid and literate. This is pathetic. The mental, emotional maturity level that shows through this woman´s writing created a frightful picture of the BHO White House. And to think that there are people who voted twice for this phenomenon and still don´t accept responsibility for what they did.

Dear Alyssa you really should have included that nepotism plays a huge role in your career success. You are such a cliche.

Sorry. I did not get past the tile (though I skimmed the shallow "work product". Anyone who has "worked" for Barry for 6 tedious years is by definition neither informed nor fashionable.

Obama Adviser: Jihadists´
Caliphate ´Absurd´
Weekly Standard, by Thomas Joscelyn    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 8/12/2014 8:20:19 AM     Post Reply
On June 29, 2011, John Brennan, who was then a senior adviser to the president and is currently the CIA director, explained the Obama administration’s counterterrorism strategy. “Our strategy is…shaped by a deeper understanding of al Qaeda’s goals, strategy, and tactics,” Brennan claimed. “I’m not talking about al Qaeda’s grandiose vision of global domination through a violent Islamic caliphate. That vision is absurd, and we are not going to organize our counterterrorism policies against a feckless delusion that is never going to happen. We are not going to elevate these thugs and their murderous aspirations into something larger than they are.”

Iraq crisis: My night on the mountain

The lights of their towns, controlled by jihadists, twinkle beneath them in the moonlight. The people of the mountain can see their towns and villages, and the headlights of the jihadi patrols snaking through the streets they have abandoned, and know they cannot return. Small campfires light up the side of the mountain, stretching towards the Syrian border just visible in the distance, where the Yazidis eke out their lives in a desperate search for sleep, food and water. Round the campfires a bedraggled spectacle of humanity sit making tea in empty bean cans torn in half, one of the few luxuries

Civilization versus barbarism

Recently, Pope Francis declared that “the persecution of Christians today is even greater than in the first centuries of the church, and there are more Christian martyrs today than in that era.” The slaughter of as many as 500,000 Christians in South Sudan since 2011 may not have received the attention it deserved. However, now the religious cleansing of Christians in Iraq resulting from Islamic jihadists’ conquest of lands Christians had called home since the first centuries A.D. cannot be ignored. In a region where Christians and Muslims had previously lived in relative peace side by side for centuries, the past 10

Iraq: Yazidi children rescued from Mount

Footage has emerged of Iraqi and Kurdish forces rescuing children from Mount Sinjar in Iraq after they had fled militants from the Islamic State group. The video provider, Steven Nabil, had direct contact with the source of the footage, ´AJK´, who supplied the material on condition that they remain anonymous. The children were flown from Sinjar mountain, where a helicopter had been delivering aid to thousands of minority Yazidis who have been stranded on a scorching mountaintop since the Islamic militants seized Sinjar, near the Syrian border, last week. They were then taken to Zakho in the self-declared autonomous Iraqi Kurdish region.

Mount Sinjar: Iraq´s mountain of death

On the dry mountain, the Yazidis fight with the goats for the remaining water. In the distance, the lights of Islamic State checkpoints loom menacingly. On Sunday, those stuck behind Islamic State lines began reporting the group´s latest slaughter: hundreds of members of their arcane but colourful sect massacred for refusing to convert to Islam. On the mountain, the rumours from their relatives only added to the sense of panic and despair. One man, the only news reporter on Mount Sinjar, told me that jihadists had stormed through his village, killing every adult, healthy male. Others talked of hundreds of women being

The terror group President Barack Obama threatened to strike in Iraq Thursday evening is itself threatening to strike the American homeland. “I say to America that the Islamic Caliphate has been established,” Abu Mosa, a spokesman for the terror group known as the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), told VICE Media in a video interview posted online Thursday. “Don’t be cowards and attack us with drones. Instead send your soldiers, the ones we humiliated in Iraq.” “We will humiliate them everywhere, God willing, and we will raise the flag of Allah in the White House,” he added. The

A 4-year-old Indonesian girl who had been swept from her parents´ grasp during the devastating 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami has apparently been found alive and reunited with her family. Raudhatul Jannah, now 14 years old, was miraculously spotted by her uncle in June after she was long given up for dead by her heartbroken parents following the Dec. 26, 2004, catastrophe, reported AFP. "God has given us a miracle," her overjoyed mother, Jamaliah, told the news agency from her home in Meulaboh, the former capital of West Aceh Regency. After the earthquake-triggered wave hit, Jannah, her 7-year-old brother and both

War Crimes in Gaza?
Weekly Standard, by Gabriel Schoenfeld    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 8/8/2014 7:43:34 AM     Post Reply
Condemnation of Israel for its conduct of Operation Protective Edge in Gaza continues unabated. The chief accusation, heard time and again, is that the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) have either been cavalier about civilian casualties or are intentionally inflicting them. Israel and its defenders, for their part, have been at pains to point out the great lengths the IDF has gone to avoid injuring civilians, while at the same time noting the innumerable ways in which Hamas has violated the laws of war. The debate over these matters has been almost as intense as the fighting itself. All too often,

Exiting The View co-host Jenny McCarthy said goodbye to the show today with Whoopi Goldberg noticeably MIA — that’s because, while the episode was in progress, Goldberg was over on the set of The Chew, chemistry testing a crop of contenders to replace McCarthy and Sherri Shepherd on the show next season. That testing, which also included returning host Rosie O’Donnell, ran from about 9 AM to noon in front of an audience of about 50. Related: Sherri Shepherd Exiting ‘The View’ — Et Tu, Jenny McCarthy?

After D.C. Councilman and former crack-smoking Mayor Marion Barry was involved in a car crash, reporters began delving into Barry’s parking tickets on the DMV website and discovered $2,824 in unpaid parking and speeding tickets. When FOX reporter Emily Miller cornered Barry to ask him about some of these tickets, Barry did not respond well to questioning, berating the young reporter and telling her she should find something else to do. Barry asked Miller how long she had been reporting, and, upon hearing that she had started at FOX in April, began to lecture her: “In this town we decide what’s important

ERUSALEM—Israel is seeking a “robust” and complete disarmament of Hamas in the Gaza Strip in order to ensure that there is no resumption in hostilities, according to a senior Israeli Foreign Ministry official who briefed the Washington Free Beacon on upcoming Egyptian-brokered ceasefire talks between the terror group and Israeli government. However, Hamas is already making untenable demands on the Jewish state that will not be met under any circumstances, according to the senior Israeli official, who agreed to discuss the nascent talks on condition of anonymity. The official spoke to a group of pastors in Israel on a trip organized by
