First lady: 2014 election key
Politico, by Edward-Isaac Dovere

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 7/27/2014 7:21:48 PM

In a new video recorded for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, first lady Michelle Obama says Democrats need to take this year’s midterms more seriously than they did either of her husband’s presidential elections. The video, her first effort on behalf of Democrats beyond a few scattered fundraisers so far, launches the DCCC’s new 1millionvotesfor2014.com website, timed to coincide with the 100-day countdown until the election. “When it comes to the midterm elections this November, we need you to be as passionate and as hungry as you were in 2008 and 2012 – in fact, you need to be even

Well, I can see that the Demos are taking this seriously. ALL of the liberal hangouts--- Whole Foods, Trader Joes, university-sponsored events, etc have numerous volunteers stationed in the parking lots with clipboards---making sure voters are registered at their correct address.
GOP volunteers should be out at Tiffany´s, Safeway, A.J´s, high end malls asking the same questions.
But no.
Then we wonder why the liberals win.

The First Grifter will run for president if Obama can´t remain in office after January 2017. AG Holder is surely working on a plan for Obama to declare an emergency that suspends the 2016 election. If this doesn´t work, we can expect the Mooch to run for the presidency.

That First Lady, she´s got some kind of superior intellect, doesn´t she?

No wonder that hospital in Chicago paid her $300,000 per year to do nothing.

It´s their future at stake.

Me, I´d be happy if she´d just cover her gorilla guns and hairy armpits. Maybe someone on The Vineyard will introduce her to a lady schick. But there, probably not.

Why bless her heart, Moochie is still speaking of being hungry. Thinking of food yet again. She believes she might meet the same fate of her mate if impeached & removed from office after November? Being a fly on the WH walls would be most interesting. Certainly would hope that she does not become so stressed out over the possibility and gain even more poundage in the already plump figure Just in case, its best to think about widening the WH doors.

ISIS pens poem about 72

How do Islamic extremists fire up the troops? Poems about virgins, of course. During a investigation into home-grown terrorists, the FBI monitored communication between two Boston Muslims, Tarek Mehanna and Ahmad Abousamra. Mehanna would be charged with aiding al Qaeda and given 17 years in prison, Abousamra fled the US before arrest, and is now serving as chief propagandist for ISIS. Abousamra posts beheading videos to the Internet, and promotes them on social media. He’s one of the FBI’s most wanted. One of the messages between Mehanna and Abousamra was a 2008 poem written by

Tomorrow evening begins the first of Ken Burns´ 14 hour documentary on PBS, The Roosevelts: An Intimate History. The good news about this documentary is that we can be sure it will be free of any political advocacy since Burns has no bias and.....Huh? Am I kidding? Of course I am. The fact is despite Burns´ laughable denials, he is a bitterly partisan Democrat to the extent that he gave a speech in 1998 in which he declared himself to be a "Yellow Dog Democrat." The speech was also chock full of scathing attacks upon Republicans which makes his later

The White House published a statement reacting to the decapitation of British Journalist David Haines at the hands of ISIS Saturday night: "The United States strongly condemns the barbaric murder of UK citizen David Haines by the terrorist group ISIL. Our hearts go out to the family of Mr. Haines and to the people of the United Kingdom. The United States stands shoulder to shoulder tonight with our close friend and ally in grief and resolve.

ISIS release video claiming to show beheading

The Islamic State has released a video claiming to show the beheading of British captive David Haines. The father-of-two, an aid worker, was abducted by militants in Syria last year. He appeared at the end of a video showing the beheading of US journalist Steven Sotloff earlier this month. In the video, which has been posted on sites such as YouTube, the extremists also threaten to execute another Briton. Islamic State (IS) extremists had threatened to kill Mr Haines and have not responded to any of the family´s attempts to make contact so far, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) said.

Hillary Clinton has revealed that she worked through her husband’s affair whilst he was President by making him go through an agonising ´truth and reconciliation´ process. The former US Secretary of State said that she forced Bill Clinton into South Africa-style hearings where he had to be completely honest before she forgave him. She said she was inspired by the country´s former leader Nelson Mandela and that she had to act otherwise she would remain in a mental ´prison´ for the rest of her life. Mrs Clinton, 66, has rarely spoken about her husband’s infidelity with White House intern Monica

It was supposed to be a somber occasion with guests mournfully remembering the passing of Joan Rivers during the funereal Jewish custom of ´sitting shiva,´ a seven-day period after death when relatives and friends gather to remember a loved one. But this was, after all, the legendary Joan Rivers — and in the end, the Friday event in Los Angeles turned out to be a star-studded celebration filled with fun memories, irreverence and much laughter. ´It was weird to be at an event like that and have a good time, but I think Joan would probably want something like that,´

Barack Obama´s plan to fight
Isil is hard to believe
Telegraph [UK], by Peter Foster    Original Article

Washington - Were it any other US president in recent memory, delivering a rousing White House address promising to "vanquish" the bloodthirsty militants of the Islamic State from the face of the earth would be dismissed as the "easy part". Recall Joe Biden, the vice president with half an eye on a run for the top job in 2016, promising to follow Isil "to the gates of hell" after the beheading of a second US journalist, and you get the picture of just how easy it can be. But as Mr Obama admitted last week with a faint whiff of

Islamic State´s rapid growth
caught U.S. by surprise
Los Angeles Times, by Brian Bennett    Original Article

As Islamic State fighters from Syria blitzed across northern Iraq this summer, they swept thousands of fresh recruits from Iraqi Sunni tribal militias, prisons and insurgent groups into their ranks, nearly tripling the size of their armed force and catching U.S. authorities by surprise, U.S. intelligence officials said Friday. Dismantling the lethal new alliances in Iraq will be a key focus as the Obama administration scrambles to push back the fast-growing extremist army, which has achieved major military gains, shows sophisticated command and control, and is exceedingly well-funded, the intelligence officials said. In coming days, the U.S. military "will be

State Sen. Rod Wright Gets
90 Days for Perjury

Democratic State Senator Roderick Wright was sentenced on Friday to 90 days in jail, three years of probation, and 1,500 hours of community service after being convicted on federal perjury and voting fraud charges in January. Wright is also banned for life from holding public office. While running to represent California´s 25th State Senate district in 2008, Wright lied about his residence to qualify for the ballot, according to the Desert Sun. He claimed he lived in an Inglewood apartment complex within the 25th District, but prosecutors were able to show that Wright´s true residence was a Baldwin Hills home

This might be Rory McIlroy´s most fantastic feat to date. On Friday at the Tour Championship, McIlroy hit a drive on the 14th hole into the trees on the right side of the fairway. Somehow, that drive landed in a fan´s pocket. After an awkward back-and-forth (how could it not be?!) McIlroy got the ball from the guy´s pocket (not on his own), dropped, and made par. He shook the fan´s hand twice laughing both times at just how absurd

Even someone as savvy about everything as Michelle Obama sometimes flubs an outfit — or to put it more politely, wears something that doesn’t enhance her natural attractions. Which is not to say that’s all that matters about the first lady, who’s been busy with a variety of public events this week: registering voters in Georgia, cutting the ribbon on the renovated White House Visitors Center, commemorating the 9/11 terrorist attacks, even appearing in a videotaped shout-out to Prince Harry. Take a look at what she wore for all that. A little too full for her figure? (Photographs).. A flattering

   

 



 
Restoring Civility to Politics
the Ted Cruz Way

Ted Cruz is not the first name on everyone’s list when one thinks of restoring decorum to politics and public discourse. Yet Cruz, the famous GOP firebrand who is Texas’ junior senator, did just that in a recent speech to a group calling itself In Defense of Christians. In his address, Cruz reiterated his strong support for Israel – hardly an outlier opinion for a member of Congress, particularly in the current political environment – and asserted, “Christians have no greater ally than Israel.” Again, this is not a provocative thing to say. It’s an opinion shared by many active

President Obama in his ISIS speech did his best to convince the American people that things are under control, that he will pursue a coalition with other nations to degrade and ultimately destroy ISIS and that he will do it only through air strikes. (Snip) When Obama declared he had no strategy yet on ISIS a few weeks ago he was perceived as a weak and indecisive leader, but is that all the reason for his reluctance to fight ISIS? Or are there other, hidden reasons why Obama does not want to destroy ISIS? Reluctance and refusal to go to war,

Qua speech, Barack Obama’s address Wednesday on the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria was surprisingly terrible: a disorganized mess, insincere and unconvincing. To appreciate just how bad and bizarre it was, compare the president’s speech announcing a new air campaign in Iraq and Syria to Dwight Eisenhower’s 1958 statement on his decision to intervene in Lebanon with 14,000—14,000!—troops. The statement contains no chest-thumping about America’s leadership in science and medicine. No pivot to the auto industry and medical research. Eisenhower simply explained what had been done, and why.

Berlin - President Obama´s declaration of war against the terrorist group known as the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria marks a decisive break in the American constitutional tradition. Nothing attempted by his predecessor, George W. Bush, remotely compares in imperial hubris. Mr. Bush gained explicit congressional consent for his invasions (Snip) Mr. Obama may rightly be frustrated by gridlock in Washington, but his assault on the rule of law is a devastating setback for our constitutional order. His refusal even to ask the Justice Department to provide a formal legal pretext for the war on ISIS is astonishing.

Val Wyatt, principal of Ventura High School, was quoted in the Ventura County Star as stating, “With their political stance on gay rights and because the students of Ventura High School and their parents would be at the event, I didn’t want them on campus.” The principal was echoed by Ventura Unified School District Superintendent Trudy Tuttle Arriaga, who said, “We value inclusivity and diversity

This week, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) slandered a group of Middle Eastern Christians who were trying to raise awareness of their struggle to avoid a genocide in the Middle East. His cynical grandstanding was rightly condemned — but he was hardly alone. Cruz agreed to speak to this group, which included bishops of the Catholic and Orthodox Churches, ostensibly out of solidarity, but took the occasion to antagonize them over their insufficient praise for Israel, then smeared them as anti-Semites before dropping the mic. The Washington Free Beacon publicized this flameout — their publisher said the room

SAN DIEGO — African-American elementary students in California were chronically truant at nearly four times the rate of all students during the last school year, according to a state report released Friday. The report by the California Attorney General´s office is the first time the data has been broken down according to race and income levels. Officials say such data is needed to address the problem. Poverty and suspensions are contributing factors. Overall, more than 250,000 elementary school students missed 10 percent or more of the 2013-2014 school year or roughly 18 or more school days. The absences were highest at the kindergarten and
