Stolen words, stolen honor
New York Daily News, by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:garnet, 7/25/2014 9:31:15 AM

Running to win the Senate seat he now occupies as an appointee, military veteran John Walsh hit a rock-bottom low. Not by plagiarizing huge chunks of a 14-page final paper he “wrote” in 2007 to earn a master’s degree in strategic studies from the U.S. Army War College. Nor by previously using his National Guard position for what the Army’s inspector general found to be “private gain.” Rather, Walsh plunged to the depths by suggesting that the trauma of combat experience provoked his plagiarism. After The New York Times proved that Walsh had lifted extensive passages virtually verbatim from published works, an aide

He´s a democrat. He has no honor nor any valor. He should be horse whipped and ridden out of town on a rail......

To the very point that Poister#1 mentions: FTA"...Walsh should read the Officer’s Code of Honor: “Every officer holds a special position of moral trust and responsibility. No officer will ever violate that trust or avoid his responsibility for any of his actions regardless of the personal cost...”

This guy realized his boat is sinking and he is trying to "float" any idea he thinks will save his behind. He would lie: "... when the Truth would sound better.." But then, he is another Democrat.

One of my brothers, a retired field-grade Army officer, is a stickler about integrity. He and all his friends from his Army days hold that virtue in high regard. It appears Mr. Walsh does not. Shame on him.

However, as a previous poster noted, Mr. Walsh is a Democrat. This type of behavior is expected.

For GOP, importance of Scott Walker
race equals any Senate matchup
Washington Examiner, by Byron York    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 9/19/2014 9:43:24 AM     Post Reply
Of course it´s important which party controls the House and Senate. But for Republicans concerned about the party´s 2016 presidential prospects, one key race this November isn´t for control of Capitol Hill. It is, somewhat improbably, the fight for governor of Wisconsin. Democrats have been gunning for incumbent Gov. Scott Walker since he and the Republican-controlled state legislature passed Act 10 — a measure curbing the collective bargaining powers of some public workers — forcing them to contribute more for their health care and pensions, and ending the automatic collection of union dues. It´s hard to remember the incredible intensity that surrounded

Harry Reid’s plot to keep the Senate
Politico, by Manu Raju and Burgess Everett    Original Article

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid believes Republicans have walked into his trap. As he’s tightened his grip on the Senate and protected vulnerable Democrats from casting politically tough votes, furious Republicans have made the mantra “fire Reid” a rallying cry and major fundraising push ahead of the midterm elections.But in Reid’s mind, Republicans are training all their fire on a guy most voters barely even know.“I’m meaningless,” Reid, a three-decade Hill veteran and the most powerful Democrat in Congress, told POLITICO Thursday. “People in red states don’t even know who I am.”

Alaska Senate Dem Under Fire
for Obamacare Rate Hikes
National Review, by Joel Gehrke    Original Article

With insurance rates set to spike in Alaska, a new ad faults Senator Mark Begich, one of the most vulnerable Democrats in the country, for supporting Obamacare and missing votes. “When Mark Begich promised Obamacare would reduce costs, we believed him,” the narrator says. “Now, some Alaskans could see their rates increase by thousands of dollars each year.” The ad, released by the Koch-backed Freedom Partners Action Fund cites a recent report on Obamacare rate hikes from Alaska Public Media. “The [Alaska] Division of Insurance says consumers can expect to pay an increase of more than 30 percent on average for coverage,” the

Scottish referendum: Alone, Scotland

No good deed goes unpunished. In granting residents of Scotland a referendum on their country’s political future, David Cameron surely thought he was doing a good deed. The Scottish National Party would have to put up or shut up. A Yes vote would be a victory for them. A No vote would be a victory for the Scottish Labour Party bigwigs to whom Mr Cameron entrusted the campaign against independence, in the belief that he – despite being the son of a Scotsman – was less qualified than they to make the case for the Union. If Mr Cameron gave a

‘I’m not Barack Obama’ is
Democrats’ election mantra

This year, far more than the last midterm elections, Democratic candidates across the country are fleeing the incumbent president. Midterms almost always go against the party in the White House, as they did (horribly) in 2010. But that year, Democrats running for Congress mostly stuck with President Obama on the newly passed Affordable Care Act. Not so this time. They are running for the hills. And while in campaigns past candidates have quietly distanced themselves from incumbent presidents (no joint appearances and no mentions in campaign ads), in 2014, some Democrats are brazenly making their marital discord known. The most hilarious example is

Forgiving Biden

Vice President Joe Biden, who in our kingless nation has been sent to play the role of Britain’s Prince Philip, condemned unscrupulous bankers earlier this week and, in doing so, caused something of a flap. While eulogizing his son Beau, Biden spun into a roving digression, lamenting that the United States was being torn asunder by a class of unscrupulous and avaricious bankers — dastardly men who spend their days tricking the public to take “bad loans,” taking advantage of the ignorant and the needy, and foreclosing the homes of military heroes while they serve overseas. Searching for a verbal

Obama´s ´Year of Action´
Becomes a Year of Fear
National Journal, by James Oliphant    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 9/18/2014 9:03:24 AM     Post Reply
Americans are afraid. The White House is afraid. Democrats are afraid. President Obama´s "Year of Action" has turned into a Year of Fear. The country seems mired in dread. And that could have mortal consequences for midterm Democrats. New polls out this week betray a rattled public, one that is jittery about war, security, and the economy—and one that is increasingly looking to the GOP, not the party in power. Even as the White House has sought to reassure Americans that the campaign in Iraq will be limited, that the president isn´t going to act alone on immigration in the near future,

If only Obama had
Bush’s real grit
Chicago Sun- Times, by Steve Huntley    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 9/18/2014 8:56:48 AM     Post Reply
For years the conventional wisdom held that President Barack Obama has continued the national security policies of George W. Bush: drone strikes, secret surveillance measures and indefinite detention of terrorists. Now, say some commentators, Obama’s war rhetoric is even sounding like Bush’s. Obama advocates preemptive war to prevent attacks on America by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, though the current thinking is that ISIS poses no imminent threat to the United States. Obama’s declaration that “if you threaten America you will find no safe haven” resonates with Bush’s assertion that “you’re either with us or against us.”

Scots Must Vote Nae

GLASGOW — To most Americans, Scotland means golf, whisky and — if they go there — steady drizzle. Even to the millions of Americans whose surnames testify to their Scottish or Scotch-Irish ancestry, the idea that Scotland might be about to become an independent country is baffling. Yet, this week, a referendum could decide just that. With days remaining before the Scottish electorate votes on whether or not to remain in the United Kingdom, the result is too close to call. Born in Glasgow, but having spent most of my life in England and America, I am rather baffled, too.

Health Care Law Is Obama´s Gift
to Republicans for 2016
Creators Syndicate, by Scott Rasmussen    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 9/16/2014 8:41:46 AM     Post Reply
President Obama’s health care law is the gift that keeps on giving to the GOP. In 2010, of course, passage of the law powered the Republican gains of 62 seats in the House of Representatives and pickups of more than 700 state legislative seats across the nation. The law didn’t go into effect in time to hurt the president’s re-election bid in 2012, but it is making life extremely difficult for the president’s party in 2014. Cautious beltway pundit Stuart Rothenberg recently announced that he is “expecting a sizable Republican Senate wave” this year. He believes the GOP will pick up at

Through waves of European revolutions, grand reform movements, the building and dismantling of history’s greatest global empire, two world wars and the establishment of one of the world’s leading welfare states, the United Kingdom has enjoyed remarkable political stability, always evolving to meet challenges but simultaneously holding to the ancient constitutional structures and traditions that have united and protected its people in an uncommonly successful multi-ethnic state. That has been good for Great Britain and good for the world. Now, the country’s future is in question, as Scotland prepares to vote Thursday on whether to secede. Polls show a closely

If past presidents are remembered for their signature achievements, Obama will be remembered for his signature lie: “If you like your health care plan blah, blah, blah.” The reader knows the rest. Although the most consequential of Obama’s lies — it got him reelected — it’s far from his only prevarication. I’ve counted 75 significant lies since his campaign for president began, but that doesn’t begin to tally the casual fibs and hyperbole he spouts seemingly every day. Here are five that illustrate just how much Obama’s presidency is built on falsehoods. 5. “My father left my family when I was 2

But, he says, “I am sure of my position…here is a simple truth that many of us seem to resist: living too long is also a loss.

Hundreds of Ferguson protesters and local far left activists packed the St. Louis County Council meeting last night in Clayton, demanding action in the Michael Brown shooting case. Brown was shot dead in Ferguson, Missouri on August 9, 2014 after he robbed a local Ferguson convenience store. Brown reportedly smashed police officer Darren Wilson in the face, severely injuring Wilson, before he was shot dead. Protesters threatened continued rioting and violence if Officer Wilson is let off.

Flashes of disagreement over how to fight the Islamic State are mounting between President Obama and U.S. military leaders, the latest sign of strain in what often has been an awkward and uneasy relationship. Even as the administration has received congressional backing for its strategy, with the Senate voting Thursday to approve a plan to arm and train Syrian rebels, a series of military leaders have criticized the president’s approach against the Islamic State militant group. Retired Marine Gen. James Mattis, who served under Obama until last year, became the latest high-profile skeptic on Thursday, telling the House Intelligence Committee

A village of just 1,000 residents in Switzerland has been forced to raise taxes because an African refugee and her seven children cost the local authority £40,000 in benefits every month. Hagenbuch, in the Swiss canton of Zurich, is understood to be spending close to a third of its total annual budget on the family after they arrived from Eritrea in East Africa three years ago. The massive benefits bill covers day-to-day living expenses such as groceries and cleaning costs, as well as paying for four of the woman´s children to be housed in an orphanage and even bills for

Devastating. That´s really the only way to describe Politico´s piece on DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz. (I hereby nominate her for Worst Week in Washington.) (Editor´s note: Three words -- Joseph. Robinette. Biden.) Based on interviews with DNC staffers -- both former and current -- the piece described Wasserman Schultz as something of a modern-day Tracy Flick: over-eager, disloyal and not shy about promoting her ambitions. It would be fair to say that she sounds like, well, a lot like other politicians. And this would be accurate. But the wholesale bashing of Wasserman Schultz at every level of the party -- White House,

It is also clear that a war including the United States is not the answer. I abhor the violence of war when diplomacy can be used.
