Calculating Hillary Gets the Math Wrong
Bloomberg, by Albert R. Hunt

Original Article

Posted By:garnet, 8/15/2014 9:36:44 AM

Picture the ad, either in the Democratic primaries or from a liberal independent candidate: Hillary Clinton -- a pro-Wall Street buckraker, a foreign policy interventionist -- championing George W. Bush´s invasion of Iraq and looking like a lukewarm supporter of President Barack Obama. Clinton´s break last week with some of Obama´s unpopular foreign policies, in an interview with my colleague Jeffrey Goldberg in the Atlantic, is going to cause her political problems. It makes her look calculating -- probably unfairly -- when she already faces some skepticism about her authenticity. And her hawkish, interventionist stance is at odds with the

Since when is authenticity factored in in politics. Look whom we have for president.

Not only is the hillarysaurus a reactionary socialist, she also has turned her coat, betraying her master for personal advantage. All the personal principles of an extinct lizard.

Voter Intensity Strongly Against Obamacare
Weekly Standard, by Jeffrey H. Anderson    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 9/22/2014 10:11:33 AM     Post Reply
A new poll from Public Opinion Strategies, commissioned by Independent Women’s Voice, finds that people who care about the issue of Obamacare really don’t like Obamacare. On the flip side, people who like Obamacare really don’t care about it very much. That’s a bad combination for pro-Obamacare candidates.The poll found that likely voters in battleground districts who consider Obamacare to be the “most important” issue in the upcoming election oppose it by the overwhelming tally of 70 to 30 percent (see slide 9). Likely voters who consider Obamacare to be a “very important” issue (but not the “most important” one)

No, Zephyr, Democrats Don´t

Zephyr Teachout, fresh from her better-than-expected showing against Gov. Andrew Cuomo in New York’s gubernatorial primary, now is urging similar challenges against other Democrats across the country. In a Politico Magazine opinion piece titled “The Dems Need a Kick From the Left” co-written with her running mate Tim Wu, Teachout wrote, “We hope a new crop of Americans runs against other Democratic governors, members of Congress and local politicians who have abandoned their constituents.” On MSNBC’s “Krystal Clear,” she pledged to run for office again, but was mum as to whether it would be a primary challenge

Obamacare Architect Finds
Cure for Old Age
American Spectator, by David Catron    Original Article

If George Washington was the father of our country, Benjamin Franklin was its grandfather. While the former was fighting the British at home, the latter was on the other side of the Atlantic securing the money and arms that kept the revolution alive. It is no exaggeration to say that, without Franklin’s indefatigable diplomatic efforts in Europe, the American Revolution would have failed. What has this to do with Obamacare? When that conflict was officially ended by the Treaty of Paris, Franklin was 77 — well past the age when key ACA architect Ezekiel Emanuel says we should all embrace

Obama’s malaise

After outlining his strategy to combat ISIS, President Obama gave a pep talk on the state of the nation. Rosily, he described the U.S. as on the move in a big comeback from 9/11 and the Great Recession. But the public ain’t buying what the President is selling. Deep, experienced-based and worsening pessimism is abroad in the land, according to the sobering findings of a national poll conducted this summer by the Heldrich Center for Workforce Development. Consider: - 71% of those surveyed said the recession that ended in 2009 permanently changed the U.S. economy — up from 49% five years ago. - 88%

Florida Governor´s Race

While much of the media pay attention to movement in this year´s U.S. Senate races (you know the drill; one of those moves two points, and everyone reacts as if it´s an avalanche), few are watching a contest with 2016 implications and a huge swing — the race for governor of Florida. Less than a year ago, Republican incumbent Rick Scott was down 20 percentage points (58-38) to challenger Charlie Crist. Crist is the former GOP governor who resigned to run for the party´s U.S. Senate nomination. When he lost in that primary, he became an independent to run in the general

Ferguson and Fairfax: Profiles

One of the catalysts for the rage and rioting in Ferguson, Mo., was the sight of that poor teenager’s body lying face down in the street hour after hour. At 12:02 p.m. August 9, one of their officers shot unarmed 18-year-old Michael Brown six times. By 12:05 p.m., a responding paramedic pronounced him dead. Yet his body was still there in the summer sun at 4 p.m., the sheet not quite long enough to cover his 6-foot-3-inch frame. Among the outraged onlookers in the Canfield Green apartment complex was his mother, distraught, and barricaded from her son’s body by police. At least

Grand Illusion in Syria
New York Times, by Ross Douthat    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 9/21/2014 9:59:35 AM     Post Reply
Across years of war and at an extraordinary cost, the United States built an army that was supposed to prevent jihadists from gaining a sanctuary in the heart of the Middle East. It had American-trained leaders, American-made weaponry and 250,000 men under arms — far more troops and firepower than any insurgent force that might emerge to challenge it. That army was the Iraqi Army, and we know what happened next: The Syrian civil war spilled over into Iraq, jihadists first found a foothold and then led an insurgency against the Iraqi military, and the jihadists won. American-organized units were routed;

IRS — abuse and cover

The IRS, which can seem to keep track of mortgage interest payments, mileage reimbursement allowances and tractor depreciation schedules for millions of American families and businesses, can’t seem to find its own archives with a flashlight. First the agency lost whole troves of emails from disgraced former apparatchik Lois Lerner — emails that would have shed light on her role in the ongoing scandal over the targeting of conservative groups by the agency. Then, on a recent Friday afternoon (of course), the agency admitted it also could not find emails from several others connected to the scandal. The disappearances are extremely convenient

The DNC chair talks too much
Washington Post, by Ed Rogers    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 9/20/2014 11:03:10 AM     Post Reply
The Democrats have a problem: Their party chair talks too much. It is the ultimate sin for an operative to become the story. The Democratic National Committee is supposed to be a unifying entity. Instead, the actions and attitude of Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s have made the Florida Democrat into a lightning rod and somewhat of a liability for the Democrats. By many accounts, Wasserman Schultz is overly concerned with being in the spotlight and promoting herself — at the expense of her effectiveness. This was highlighted this week by Politico in its story “Democrats turn on Debbie Wasserman Schultz.”

   

 



 
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

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

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

Employers won’t hire her. She’s been berated with epithets like “dirty Jew.” Federal agents have guarded her house because of death threats. And she’s spent hundreds of thousands of dollars defending herself against accusations she orchestrated a coverup in a scandal that has come to represent everything Americans hate about the IRS. Lois Lerner is toxic — and she knows it. But she refuses to recede into anonymity or beg for forgiveness for her role in the IRS tea party-targeting scandal. “I didn’t do anything wrong,” Lerner said in her first press interview since the scandal broke 16 months ago. “I’m

Sarah Palin has come out in defense of her daughter Bristol who allegedly punched a man in the face during a family brawl. The former Vice President candidate hailed her child as a ´straight shooter´ in a Facebook which appears to be her first veiled reference to the fight two weekends ago. The 23-year-old is said to have repeatedly hit the owner of a home in Anchorage, Alaska, during an outburst in which her brother Track broke four ribs and her father Todd was left with a bloody nose.

CBS is putting its Hillary-inspired drama "Madam Secretary" on Sunday nights next to "The Good Wife." In Friday´s New York Times, TV critic Alessandra Stanley discussed the two shows and slammed Hillary. "Hillary Rodham Clinton is the obvious inspiration, but this is Hillary with a human face," she wrote. During the Cold War, reporters would suggest a kinder, gentler Marxist regime was "communism with a human face." Stanley continued: "Téa Leoni, who has a husky voice and a loose, engaging manner, is an unusually likable beauty. As Elizabeth McCord, she has all the brains and determination of the original and none

Camp Edwards - Police and military officials are searching for three officers from the Afghanistan National Army who were engaged in a training exercise at Joint Base Cape Cod. Massachusetts National Guard spokesman Lt. Col. James Sahady said the three men were reported missing on Saturday night after travelling into Hyannis that day. “They didn´t report back (to the base),” Sahady said. “There is no indication they pose a threat to the public.” Police and base officials are cooperating in the search for the three men, identified as Maj. Jan Mohammad Arash, Capt. Mohammad Nasir Askarzada, and Capt. Noorullah Aminyar.

I know a lot of people are giddy at the prospect of Republicans taking the Senate this November, but that’s becoming less and less likely. It’s not because Democrats are rallying around a particular mission or set of candidates; it’s because Republicans and conservatives aren’t. It seems like I’m always writing on issues no one wants to hear are mistakes, such as messaging or social issues. But I don’t care. These things have to be said. If these columns are received like a gaseous cousin on a long car trip through the desert, so be it. Crack a window… If things continue on their current course, the GOP will not retake the Senate.

WASHINGTON — WHEN Willie Nelson invites you to get high with him on his bus, you go. The man is the patron saint of pot, after all, and I’m the poster girl for bad pot trips. It seemed like a match made in hash heaven. When Nelson sang at the 9:30 club in D.C. one recent night, I ventured onto the Honeysuckle Rose, as his tour bus and home-away-from-home is called. I was feeling pretty shy about meeting him. The 81-year-old Redheaded Stranger is an icon, one of America’s top songwriters and, as Rolling Stone said, “a hippie’s hippie and

It was once said, “religion is designed to comfort the afflicted and to afflict the comfortable.” Jesus’ parables – short stories with moral lessons – were likewise designed to afflict, to draw us in but leave us uncomfortable. These teachings can be read as being about divine love and salvation, sure. But, their first listeners – first century Jews in Galilee and Judea – heard much more challenging messages. Only when we hear the parables as Jesus’ own audience did can we fully experience their power and find ourselves surprised and challenged today. Here are four examples of Jesus’ teachings that everybody gets wrong: 1.

The United Nations Climate Summit will begin in New York this Tuesday, but environmental activists didn’t wait. All day Sunday, they filled the streets of Manhattan for a march that featured Al Gore, New York City mayor Bill de Blasio, and various Hollywood actors. But they certainly didn’t act like a movement that was winning. There was a tone of fatalism in the comments of many with whom I spoke; they despair that the kind of radical change they advocate probably won’t result from the normal democratic process. It’s no surprise then that the rhetoric of climate-change activists has become increasingly

Three and a half months have come and gone and the Pentagon has offered no clarity on what happened to alleged Army deserter and Taliban collaborator Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. Fellow soldiers and other critics fear the military’s now-delayed investigation is shaping up to be a whitewash. The case has become a political powder keg for President Obama. Since he traded five imprisoned Taliban leaders for Bergdahl, the US Government Accountability Office has declared the swap illegal, and nearly two dozen House Democrats have joined Republicans in officially condemning the move for making “Americans less safe.”

The man who jumped the White House railing Sept. 19 deserves the right to live in President Barack Obama’s home, just as the president is allowing hundreds of thousands of border-jumping Central Americans to live in Americans’ homeland, says a new tongue-in-cheek petition posted at the White House website. “We urge President Obama to immediately and publicly recognize that Mr. Omar J. Gonzalez, an oppressed migrant, was merely looking for a better life when he entered the White House after going over the classist, divisive and needless fence,” says the petition, which was authored by D.A. King, founder of the Georgia-based

When Anthony Weiner’s mayoral campaign imploded last year amid new sexting revelations, the fallout buffeted his wife, longtime Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin. Clinton’s inner circle was furious with Weiner, and Abedin’s role with Hillary was said to be in doubt. “Huma has a choice to make,” New York magazine quoted a “close associate” of Abedin’s as saying. “Does she go with Anthony, or does she go with Hillary?” The magazine described Abedin as “traumatized” by the prospect of leaving the inner sanctum. One year later, Abedin’s marriage to Weiner appears intact, and her role in Hillary’s camp is secure. As Clinton’s personal chief

Domestic violence, also known as intimate partner violence, is defined as the physical, sexual or psychological harm caused by the current or former intimate partner. Since the 1970s, concern regarding the issue began in response to the women´s movement. Most of the traditional studies looked at the abuse women faced from men in heterosexual relationships. But, the latest study by Northwestern Medicine scientists found that domestic violence is more common among same-sex couples and excess stress raises the risk of this abuse. On analyzing the previous studies together, it was observed that domestic violence affected
