Scorched earth: Over a HUNDRED
homes burned to the ground as huge
Washington wildfire burns town
to the ground

Daily Mail (UK) & Associated Press, by Ryan Gorma, Michael Zennie

A raging wildfire in central Washington has wiped most of a small town off the map - destroying 100 homes as it whips out of control across 260 square miles of dry forest - and fears are now growing that it will claim a second community. The Carlton Complex fire grew by nearly ten times Friday as four fires horrifically merged into one and exploded across the small village of Pateros, officials said. Residents of the town of Malott and outlying areas of nearby Brewster have been evacuated as flames rages only miles from their homes. ´We basically evacuated the

2016 Hopefuls Test the Waters
with the ‘Values Voters’
PJ Media, by Bill Straub    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 9/27/2014 2:47:58 PM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON – A handful of potential presidential contenders made the pilgrimage to a confab of social conservatives on Friday to express their love for God and their disdain for President Obama and his policies. The Values Voter Summit, organized annually by the Family Research Council, brought Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Pa.) and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal to the dais to express concerns over what they perceive as continued attacks on religious liberty in the U.S. – some led by Obama – and offer warnings over what all viewed as dangerous foreign policy missteps.

1 in 4 Americans 25-54 Not Working

A new chart from the minority side of the Senate Budget Committee shows a startling fact: Almost 1 in 4 Americans between the ages of 25-54 (or prime working years) are not working. Here´s a chart showing those in that age group currently employed (95.6 million) and those who aren´t (28.9 million): (Chart) "There are 124.5 million Americans in their prime working years (ages 25–54). Nearly one-quarter of this group—28.9 million people, or 23.2 percent of the total—is not currently employed. They either became so discouraged that they left the labor force entirely, or they are in the labor force

Rosneft Says Exxon Arctic Well Strikes Oil

Russia, viewed by the Obama administration as hostile to U.S. interests, has discovered what may prove to be a vast pool of oil in one of the world’s most remote places with the help of America’s largest energy company. Russia’s state-run OAO Rosneft (ROSN) said a well drilled in the Kara Sea region of the Arctic Ocean with Exxon Mobil Corp. (XOM) struck oil, showing the region has the potential to become one of the world’s most important crude-producing areas. The announcement was made by Igor Sechin, Rosneft’s chief executive officer, who spent two days sailing on a Russian research

Joni Ernst’s Iowa campaign makes

The Machine Shed restaurant, where the waitresses wear bib overalls and suggest a cinnamon roll the size of a loaf of bread as a breakfast appetizer, sells a root beer called Dang!, bandages made to look like bacon strips, and signs that proclaim, “I love you more than bacon.” For Joni Ernst, however, the apposite sign reads, “No one ever injured their eyesight by looking on the bright side.” She, nourished by a cinnamon roll, is preparing for a bus tour taking her Senate candidacy to all of Iowa’s 99 counties, and she seems to love campaigning even more than

In the Homestretch, Obama Comes on Strong

“The enemy of my enemy is my friend,” says the ancient proverb. But don’t tell that to President Obama, who is furiously bombing Bashar al-Assad’s enemies in Syria while insisting that Mr. Assad’s regime is also the enemy. Best also not to remind Mr. Obama about leading from behind, or of his arguments against being drawn into the Syrian civil war or getting embroiled in any Middle Eastern conflicts. This was the week the president went before the United Nations General Assembly and proclaimed, in effect, that the United States was back out front again — not only against the

The RAF is flying bombing missions over Iraq, the Ministry of Defence has confirmed. Two armed RAF Tornado aircraft, plus a refuelling aircraft, took off from their base in Cyprus today to target Isis terrorists. The Ministry of Defence said in a statement: ´We can confirm that, following parliamentary approval given yesterday, RAF Tornados continue to fly over Iraq and are now ready to be used in an attack role as and when appropriate targets are identified. ´For operational security reasons we will not be providing a running commentary on movements; we will provide an update on activity when it

Fourteen people were shot across the South Side in a 14-hour period starting about 2 p.m. Friday afternoon and continuing into Saturday morning, according to police. Nine of the 14 were wounded in the Englewood police district - a 20-block-by-22-block square from Garfield Boulevard 20 blocks south to 75th Street and from the Dan Ryan Expressway to a viaduct just west of Leavitt Street. The shootings included a pair of homicides that each left two others wounded and two other shootings that left men in their 20s or 30s with survivable gunshot wounds, police said. The afternoon´s first attack left

Will Obama Try to Put Holder

There has been a lot of buzz around the blogosphere regarding the recent announcement that Attorney General Eric Holder will resign his position “as soon as a replacement can be found.” Rush Limbaugh opined that Holder may have resigned now to grease the skids for the President to nominate him to the high court. Now would be a good time, while the President has a majority in the Senate, or at least it looks good if you don’t look too closely. Arguing against such a move would be that Obama would have to convince one of the sitting justices to

Bill Maher Battles Gen. Tony Zinni
over Whether ‘Latte-gate’ Was Disrespectful

Bill Maher could not believe the completely ridiculous “latte-gate” controversy swirling this week about President Obama‘s coffee cup salute. He mocked the hype and said, “If this offends you that much, you should marry your teddy bear.” General Anthony Zinni actually told Maher he was bothered by Obama’s salute, because it struck him as disrespectful. He said it was more like a “frat house” gesture than something the President of the United States would do. Maher and Zinni ended up battling over the origins of the salute, and of the president giving the salute. Maher said it’s a fairly recent

   

 



 
What´s a war without a code name?
Washington Examiner (DC), by Charles Hoskinson    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 9/27/2014 3:48:05 AM     Post Reply
When the U.S. military strikes, its leaders often choose colorful code names for the operation that sometimes stick in history, like Operation Overlord or Rolling Thunder or Desert Storm. Not this time. The U.S.-led air campaign against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria doesn´t have a name. "I know of no plans at this point to name it," Pentagon spokesman Rear Adm. John Kirby said Thursday. Since World War II, almost every U.S. military operation, large and small, has had a code name. And that name usually sticks when veterans talk about the conflicts in which they participated, such

Months after statewide voter turnout hit a historic low of 25% in this year´s primary election, Gov. Jerry Brown on Friday signed eight bills aimed at getting more Californians to participate in the political process. He also signed dozens of other bills Friday — a hodgepodge that included new rights for gay and transgender Californians, a requirement that state prisons expand the availability of condoms to inmates and measures that promote the "farm to fork" movement to increase consumer access to fresh food. The voting-related measures will allow absentee ballots mailed on election day to be counted as long as

Former Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum on Thursday criticized comments US Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) made earlier this month, in a speech that critics have said was unnecessarily confrontational toward a Middle Eastern Christian group. (snip) Cruz earned the ire of many conservatives for his speech to a group called "In Defense of Christians." During those remarks, Cruz made a point to say he would not support groups in the Middle East who are not pro-Israel.  He walked off the stage to a chorus of boos after eventually telling the crowd he wouldn´t "stand with" them if they did not "stand

Although 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue may be the most famous address in the country, that doesn’t mean everyone remembers it. At the Value Voters Summit today in Washington, D.C, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, who was the Republican nominee for vice president in 2008, mistakenly referred to the White House as being located at “1400 Pennsylvania Avenue.” “Don’t retreat. You reload with truth, which I know is an endangered species at 1400 Pennsylvania Avenue, anyway truth,” Palin said. “The media’s favorite president. He just can’t stop telling lies.” It doesn’t appear that a 1400 Pennsylvania Avenue NW actually exists–but the closest

We’re being had. Again. For six years, President Obama has endeavored to will the country into accepting two pillars of his alternative national-security reality. First, he claims to have dealt decisively with the terrorist threat, rendering it a disparate series of ragtag jayvees. Second, he asserts that the threat is unrelated to Islam, which is innately peaceful, moderate, and opposed to the wanton “violent extremists” who purport to act in its name. Now, the president has been compelled to act against a jihad that has neither ended nor been “decimated.” The jihad, in fact, has inevitably intensified under his counterfactual

Even though Republicans may take back the Senate by running against amnesty, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush pushed amnesty legislation while stumping for North Carolina Republican Senate candidate Thom Tillis on Wednesday. Bush, according to the New York Times, reportedly said that comprehensive immigration reform "will restore and sustain economic growth for this country." And even though a recent Gallup poll found that illegal immigration is now the top concern among Republicans, Bush said that if immigration reform is "framed in that way, I don’t think there’s a big debate in the Republican Party about the need to do this."

Attorney General Eric Holder´s abrupt announcement that he intends to leave the Obama administration as soon as the president is able to find someone to take over for him was initiated by his doctor wife´s concerns about his health, a news report revealed on Thursday. Holder was rushed in an ambulance to a Washington, D.C. hospital in February after feeling faint and having a shortness of breath. [Snip] Politico Magazine reported on Thursday that ´under pressure´ from his wife, Sharon Malone, an obstetrician and gynecologist, Holder decided to make the jump now before Republicans potentially take over the Senate in

Of all the malfeasances of William Jefferson Clinton the one that would have most justified a removal from office was not the Monica hijinks, even with the attendant lying under oath and absurd parsings of the word “is,” but the pardoning of Marc Rich — the billionaire international commodities trader and mammoth contributor to, er, Clinton. Luckily for Bill, this action occurred on the last day of his presidency, making anything like impeachment moot, even though it was an example of political corruption that would have made Boss Tweed envious. For those who don’t recall the details, here’s Wikipedia: In 1983

With the mid-term elections weeks away, many conservatives are confronting a difficult choice. Assuming there are no solid conservatives on the ballot, do we vote for establishment candidates? Or not vote at all? The reasons why some conservatives are on the fence or planning not to vote are well known. (And Democrats are loving every minute of it!) “Establishment Republicans have attacked us and I refuse to support any of them.” “I’m sick of RINO’s. They’re no better than the Democrats.” “Other than a few strong conservatives, the rest of the GOP stands for nothing.” I share these frustrations. The conversation in my head goes something

If I were a scientist, I´d stick to the Goldman Sachs principle: bet on both sides. "Believe in science, believe in God" seems to cover all the possibilities and gives you the best chance for a cheery afterlife. For a time, it was thought that astrophysicist Stephen Hawking had also left a tiny gap in his credo window for a magical deity. However, he has now come out and declared that there is no God. (Snip...) "Before we understand science, it is natural to believe that God created the universe. But now science offers a more convincing explanation."

Milton Wolf, the tea party candidate who battled Sen. Pat Roberts in a bitter Republican primary fight, is considering some political payback: Endorsing Kansas independent Greg Orman, sources said Thursday night. But there’s a big catch: To win Wolf’s endorsement, Orman must first agree to caucus with the Senate GOP if he were to defeat Roberts in the general election. The two men were scheduled to meet Friday afternoon at Orman’s house in Olathe, Kansas., just outside of Kansas City, according to two people familiar with the matter. One person said Orman’s team sought the meeting but there was no
