Nixon. Now more than ever
Washington Times, by Monica Crowley

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 8/8/2014 5:06:25 AM

Forty years ago this week, President Richard Nixon resigned from office. I was a very young child as I watched him announce his decision to resign on Aug. 8, 1974, but I remember seeing Nixon’s face fill the television screen, full of emotion. I could not have grasped that that brief speech was the culmination of a tragic series of events that had brought down his presidency, nor could I know that I would work for him years later. In July 1990, I became former President Nixon’s foreign-policy assistant. I served in that capacity until his death on April 22, 1994.

I´ve always said he´s one of our greatest presidents. He, as he himself put it, turned a minor burglary into a major scandal when he entered the fray.

FTA: "He was a patriot and a true American original, whose brilliance and vision we desperately miss on the scene today."

Nixon´s transgressions, measured by the Obama yard stick, amount to being in the express check-out lane with two items more than the ten limit -- one of which is a cushion with the "do not remove" label torn off.

Conversely, if Obama´s conduct was held to the standards of the Nixon era, he would have long since been tried, convicted, and executed for treason, with the exception that the communist controlled media that brought down Nixon adores and protects Obama.

This condition will continue until there is no United States of America unless "We The People" wise up (QUICKLY) and bring down the evil and biased media by boycotting every program they air and every product their advertisers push. (Parasites always destroy the hosts that keep them alive.)

Edinburgh - Scotland began voting Thursday on whether to become independent, in a referendum that could break up the centuries-old United Kingdom and create Europe´s newest country since the collapse of Yugoslavia.Some 97 percent of eligible Scots -- 4.3 million people -- have registered to vote, underscoring the passions that the historic decision has kindled across the country. After months when it looked like the independence camp could not win, a surge in support in the final two weeks has left pollsters warning the outcome too close to call. "This is our opportunity of a lifetime," Scotland´s pro-independence First Minister Alex Salmond

Congressman Jason Chaffetz broke this shocking news Wednesday that four known terrorists were apprehended at the US border in Texas on September 10 – the day before the 13th anniversary of the 9-11 attacks. Chaffetz questioned Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson on whether he is “aware of any apprehensions of suspected or known terrorists.” Johnson dodged the question. Tonight, Rep. Chaffetz told Megyn Kelly there were four terrorists arrested crossing the US border in Texas on September 10. “There were actually four individuals trying to cross through the Texas border, who were apprehended at two different stations, that do have ties to known terrorist

The Long Road Home Project was an organization designed to help returning veterans heal war wounds through the power of cross-country cycling. Two years after initiating their first ride, however, the organization has disbanded, tens of thousands of dollars are unaccounted for and some are accusing the man behind the project of having broken the law. Casey Miller, along with five other participants, set out on a long-distance bike ride from Seattle, Wash. to Washington, D.C. The five others were veterans riding for various causes, all seeking to heal wounds caused by, or developed during, their service to our country. Miller, the

SANTA ROSA BEACH, Florida – Mike Huckabee bought a beachfront lot here in 2009, a year after his failed bid for the Republican presidential nomination. A longtime friend and political ally of the former Arkansas governor bought the lot next door. They planned to build $3 million vacation villas side-by-side, each with a pool and sweeping views of Walton County’s renowned sugary sand beaches and the azure waters of the Gulf of Mexico. The only hitch was that their lots lay on a severely eroding beach. Under state regulations, they couldn’t build on the seaward side of the sand dune nearest

Brendan Tevlin was catching up with old friends and classmates after returning home to Livingston, New Jersey, following his first year at the University of Richmond. On the night of June 25, the 19-year-old spent several hours at a friend’s place in West Orange, a town bordering his own, then texted his mother that he was heading home. He never arrived. Somewhere around midnight, as Tevlin pulled up to an intersection bordering a large wooded area, at least three and possibly four men approached his car. One of the men opened fire, killing the college student in a murder that

Ask a Liberal: Who Lost Iraq?

Who lost Iraq? In so many words, that is now the increasingly potent counter to years of liberal charges that America’s problems in the world can be traced to the Bush-Cheney foreign policy — specifically the invasion of 2003. The question has now taken root, with “Iraq” serving as shorthand for everything from Iraq itself to ISIS, the Syrian mess, Benghazi, and more. Graphically illustrated by the beheadings of two American journalists, a British aid worker, ISIS armies causing chaos in the once-stabilized region. Not to mention the murder of a 19-year old New Jersey college student Brendan Tevlin by

When are boots on the ground not boots on the ground? When they’re in Iraq. You’d be forgiven for being confused about the role of the U.S. military in combating the Islamic State, the band of militants who’ve taken over territory in Iraq and Syria. The Obama administration has announced a plan to roll back its advances with U.S. airstrikes combined with the ground forces of local allies, specifically Kurdish and Iraqi forces. There will be no U.S. boots on the ground, President Barack Obama said, as recently as today. “I want to be clear: The American forces that have been deployed to

´Security Moms´ Are Back—and
That´s Bad News for Democrats
Atlantic Wire, by Peter Beinart    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 9/18/2014 4:49:42 AM     Post Reply
Suddenly, it feels like 2002. Democrats got creamed in midterm elections that year because the women voters they had relied on throughout the Clinton years deserted them. In 2000, women favored Democratic congressional candidates by nine points. In 2002, that advantage disappeared entirely. The biggest reason: 9/11. In polls that year, according to Gallup, women consistently expressed more fear of terrorism that men. And that fear pushed them toward the GOP, which they trusted far more to keep the nation safe. As then-Senator Joe Biden declared after his party’s midterm shellacking, “soccer moms are security moms now.” Unfortunately for President Obama,

What coalition? No ‘ally’ is putting

Coalition? What coalition? Arab would-be allies in the fight against the Islamic State say (at best): Maybe. Egypt, the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Jordan and other US-allied Arab regimes have sufficient reason to fight the jihadis that threaten their leaders’ hold on power. But they no longer trust America to lead them: We’ve let them down too many times these last five years. Qatar, on the other hand, has long supported extremists nearly as bad as ISIS (or ISIL as governments worldwide for some reason prefer). Yes, it’s recently started to at least pretend that it’s ready to expel the Muslim Brotherhood leaders and

‘CATALIST’: Obama’s Database for
Fundamentally Transforming America
PJ Media, by J. Christian Adams    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 9/18/2014 4:37:50 AM     Post Reply
The Democrats and the institutional left have a new political tool that allows them virtually to ignore moderates yet still win elections. This tool, the Catalist database, was employed in the 2012 election. That election defied conventional wisdom: Mitt Romney sought and won independent voters overwhelmingly, but still lost. If you wondered why the conventional wisdom about independents and moderates didn’t seem so wise in 2012, the answer is Catalist. Beyond winning elections, Catalist also allows the Democrats to turn the policy narrative upside down and suffer no political consequence for implementing radical policies which appeal to their base. The Obama administration’s

In a sharp criticism of Mexico´s "failure" on immigration and crime policies, Texas Gov. Rick Perry on Wednesday invited President Enrique Pena Nieto to visit his state and observe law enforcement efforts on the U.S. side of the border. Pena Nieto recently criticized Perry´s highly-publicized deployment of National Guard troops to the border as "unpleasant" and "reprehensible." Perry, mulling running for president in 2016, fired back Wednesday with a letter to Pena Nieto saying Mexico isn´t doing enough to control immigration along its border with Central America or to control drug cartels.

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

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
