Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Scottyboy, 7/30/2014 8:54:42 AM

WASHINGTON — A bitterly divided House panel on Tuesday voted to condemn President Barack Obama for the swap of five Taliban leaders for Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who was held prisoner in Afghanistan for five years.(snip) The vote was 34-25 with two Democrats — Reps. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii and Mike McIntyre of North Carolina — joining Republicans in support of the measure. The bipartisan resolution raises national security concerns about the transfer of the five Taliban, who had been held at the prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, for more than a decade, and the “repercussions of negotiating with terrorists.” The

Comments:
Non-binding, but bipartisan.

Tulsi Gabbard is a Captain in the Hawaii National Guard.

The military is not happy with the deserter.

Hamas = ISIS rebels = Syrian rebels = Taliban = Al Qaeda (who are on the run).

The five who were released went to Qatar, where Hamas leader lives. (I´d be curious to see a transcript of that negotiation.)

Then - Hamas ramps up its attack on Israel.

Then - Kerry meets with Qatar and Turkey to set up a plan for Israel/Hamas cease fire that gives Hamas everything they want.

I am so disappointed at Dempsey and the other "Chiefs" for not having the guts to buck Our Dear Leader. Guess that´s how they got as far as they have.

Someday some social science genius will provide a definitive work that explains how someone so unknown, so knowledge-deficient and so ideological was elected president. How were the reins of power so easily passed to him? How were the majority so easily blindsided?

The world will then learn more about social psychology, politics and human frailty than ever before.

And Obama replied with the only thing American that he likes, the five finger American salute. You know the one, the flying eagle, with the middle finger waving madly. He loves that American pasttime most of all. He does it to all Americans, often, and wholeheartedly.

The release of the terrorists was nothing less than high treason. Zippy should be punished accordingly.

SEOUL -- A young American man has been caught trying to swim across a river border into North Korea, a government source said Wednesday. The man was arrested by Marine sentries at around 11:55 p.m. on Tuesday while he was swimming across the Han River, which borders with North Korea, the source said.

The injustice of Eric Holder

Even we were shocked when we researched our new book, “Obama’s Enforcer: Eric Holder’s Justice Department,” at the extent to which Attorney General Eric Holder Jr. has politicized the Justice Department and put the interests of left-wing ideology and his political party ahead of the fair and impartial administration of justice. However, there is no doubt that the American public has also recognized just how politically corrupt Mr. Holder is, given this month’s very embarrassing poll conducted by Hart Research for NBC News and The Wall Street Journal. The poll asked respondents their opinions about 10 different national political officials, ranging

A handful of protesters crashed a speech Hillary Clinton delivered at a labor union’s headquarters in Manhattan tonight, attacking the former first lady for supporting the president’s decision to delay an executive action on immigration reform. “Undocumented, unafraid! Undocumented, unafraid!” the protesters, a group of several women and children, cried as Ms. Clinton was finishing a speech in support of the reauthorization of the Zadroga Act, a law that granted medical compensation and health care to survivors of the September 11 attacks. “Hillary Clinton hasn’t come out in support of our families,” said Mateo Taveras, a 19 year-old native of Colombia living

Minnesota´s ObamaCare exchange stands apart from every other state — and not only because its No. 1 insurer just threw in the towel. Tuesday´s stunning news that PreferredOne, which enrolled 59% of the state´s exchange members, won´t offer subsidized ObamaCare policies in 2015 is likely related to another unique feature of the exchange that has stunted its growth potential. In 2015, well more than half of MNsure exchange subsidies won´t go to insurers on the exchange, but to a public program serving households that fall between the cut-off for Medicaid and 200% of the poverty level. To date, this MinnesotaCare program for households

NEW HAVEN >> Ayaan Hirsi Ali, known worldwide for her crusade on behalf of women’s rights in Muslim regions, brought her message to Yale University Monday night and received a standing ovation at the end of her talk. Her warm reception came despite a protest in the days before her visit by Yale’s Muslim Students Association. They criticized Yale’s William F. Buckley Jr. Program for inviting her to campus, saying she lacks the “credentials” to speak authoritatively on Islam. The students association called on the Buckley Program leaders to have another voice on stage to counter Hirsi Ali’s views. The Buckley leaders

CANANDAIGUA, N.Y. — NASCAR star Tony Stewart’s case is headed to a grand jury in New York to determine whether criminal charges will be filed, I-Team 8 has learned. Stewart’s car struck and killed 20-year-old Kevin Ward Jr. on the dirt track at Canandaigua Motorsports Park on Aug. 9. Ward had climbed out of his car and walked onto the track to confront Stewart after he spun out while racing alongside the three-time NASCAR champion. Ontario County District Attorney Michael Tantillo said the evidence would be given to a grand jury “in the near future.” It’s unclear when the grand

The imprisoned former U.S. intelligence analyst known as Chelsea Manning is offering advice to President Obama: contain ISIS, don´t bomb them. "ISIS cannot be defeated by bombs and bullets — even as the fight is taken to Syria, even if it is conducted by non-Western forces with air support," Manning, who is serving a 35-year prison sentence for leaking classified intelligence, wrote in a column for The Guardian newspaper.

TRENTON — First Obama, now Pelosi? Gov. Chris Christie drew the ire of fellow Republicans two years ago when he embraced President Obama in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. On Monday, Christie — a potential Republican candidate for president in 2016 — held hands with another Democrat who is often a target of conservative furor: U.S. Rep. Nancy Pelosi, the former Speaker of the House. Christie and Pelosi (D-Calif.) appeared together at a ceremony celebrating the opening of Martin´s Place, the new location of Jersey City´s prisoner re-entry and jobs program. The event was a bipartisan one. Also in attendance

President Obama is featured in the first ad of a more than $1 million campaign from the Democratic National Committee to attract young, minority and female voters in the midterm elections. The radio ad titled "Obstruction" released Monday laments the unprecedented gridlock Obama has faced from Republicans in the House and Senate. It is aimed at black voters, and will run on African American radio stations nationally. "No Democratic President in U.S history has faced the level of obstruction from the Republicans that Barack Obama has. It’s critical that we continue to fight for change and vote on November 4," the narrator

MY "white privilege" was sharing a bedroom with my sister in a South Bronx tenement until I was 15 and she was 11. My parents slept on a bed in the living room. Then we moved out of a neighborhood of close scrapes and fire escapes to a Brooklyn public-housing project where we had our own bedrooms. We were lower class, but not poor, or at least we didn´t think so. In the early ´50s, not all that many people were rich, and I didn´t know any of them.

President Barack Obama unveiled his plan to tackle the Ebola crisis in West Africa on Tuesday, promising to do far more to tackle the deadly virus he said could result in "hundreds of thousands of people infected" without US intervention. "More than 2,400 men, women, and children are known to have died and we strongly suspect that the actual death toll is higher than that," Obama said in a speech at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, Georgia. "Hospitals, clinics, and the few treatment centers that do exist have been completely overwhelmed." The president was particularly dire

Democrats are now (very slightly) favored to hold the Senate majority on Nov. 4, according to Election Lab, the Post´s statistical model of the 2014 midterm elections. Election Lab puts Democrats´ chances of retaining their majority at 51 percent -- a huge change from even a few months ago when the model predicted that Republicans had a better than 80 percent chance of winning the six seats they need to take control. (Worth noting: When the model showed Republicans as overwhelming favorites, our model builders -- led by George Washington University´s John Sides -- warned that the model could and

The Obama administration is preparing to introduce major steps to phase out production of a popular chemical coolant used in refrigerators and air conditioners, citing growing evidence that the substance is contributing to the warming of the planet. The White House will announce on Tuesday a series of voluntary commitments by some of the country’s largest chemical firms and retailers to move rapidly away from R-134a and similar compounds used in nearly every office, home and automobile in the country, according to current and former U.S. officials familiar with the effort.

First Lady Michelle Obama has made healthy eating and exercise her signature issue. But, a recent study published by the Sage Journal found that her “elitist” advice actually “shames poor and middle class mothers.” The College Fix added that the study found that Michelle Obama’s healthy eating program is also sexist. It’s also sexist, the study’s authors suggest, noting that “intentionally or not, it places the burden of a healthy home-cooked meal on women.” Sage Journals published the study by North Carolina researchers Sarah Bowen, Sinikka Elliott and Joslyn Brenton. Here are a few of the findings: Magazines such as Good Housekeeping and

Washington - The current threat posed by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, will test not only the resolve and strategic judgment of America and its allies, but also our nation’s fidelity to a basic constitutional principle. Our Constitution reserves to Congress the power to declare war and designates our president as the commander in chief, but our recent history has been characterized by executive overreach and legislative abdication in the initiation of military action. The current crisis gives us an opportunity to restore the proper balance between the branches. America’s history since 2001 should compel us to fix the way
