Too rich for her own blood
Boston Herald, by Adriana Cohen

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 8/19/2014 5:13:01 AM

Oh, the irony. Or should I say, flat-out hypocrisy? Numerous reports have revealed that top Democratic 2016 presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton is living a lavish, over-the-top affluent lifestyle befitting — you guessed it — a mean old One-Percenter. She and her fellow Democrats pretend they’re the party of the poor, the “hammered” middle class — the 99 percent. Well sorry, Hillary, but average Americans don’t vacation in the Hamptons in $18 million homes, fly private jets, get paid more than $200,000 a pop for speeches or stay in presidential suites while traveling. The Clintons have raked in more than $100 million over the

a good article ... I appreciate Ms. Cohen pointing this out.

We have a "One-Percenter" running against the excellent Governor Walker here in WI, but the Governor’s Democrat opponent’s liberal base of supporters (and the media) ignores it, even though they were “all in” on the Occupy Wall Street idiocy ...

Never mind.

Al Sharpton Suggests He’s The
Frederick Douglass Of Our Time
Daily Caller, by Brendan Bordelon    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 8/24/2014 4:32:31 PM     Post Reply
Civil rights activist and MSNBC host Al Sharpton compared his relationship with President Barack Obama to the relationship between President Abraham Lincoln and abolitionist and famed orator Frederick Douglass. On NBC’s “Meet The Press” on Sunday, Chris Jansing asked Sharpton about a recent article in Politico Magazine labeling him a “surrogate” for Obama’s White House regarding race relations. “First of all, I’m not a surrogate,” he contended. “I have access to the White House in every era going back to Lincoln with Frederick Douglass. Presidents talk to those that were leading at that time.” “Not comparing Marc Morial or Melanie Campbell and I

Search for James Foley

Boston Globe, by Bryan Bender and Noah Bierman    Original Article

WASHINGTON — It was the Saturday after Thanksgiving in 2012 when top executives at the Boston-based GlobalPost received an e-mail from one of the news service’s freelance correspondents near the Syrian border. “Hate to be writing this to you but Jim has gone missing in Syria,” she wrote. The prospect that James W. Foley had been taken hostage left GlobalPost co-founder Charles M. Sennott with “a terrible, sinking sense of deja vu” — a “here we go again” feeling. Foley, the New Hampshire-born war correspondent beheaded by militants from the terrorist group calling itself the Islamic State, had previously been kidnapped in

Inside the Democrats´ Plan to
Save Arkansas—and the Senate
Atlantic, by Molly Ball    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 8/24/2014 4:22:35 PM     Post Reply
PINE BLUFF, Arkansas—No sign announces the purpose of this little storefront, squeezed between a Bestway Rent to Own and a Rent-a-Center in a dilapidated shopping center. But the words hand-lettered in black and red marker on three pieces of paper taped to the window—"Register to Vote Here"—and a cluster of placards for candidates give it away: It is a Democratic Party field office. Democrats aren´t advertising this office and 39 others like it that are scattered around Arkansas—in fact, their locations are a closely guarded secret. When I visited last week, having tracked it down through creative public-records sleuthing, I took

Will Iowa be Dems’ Waterloo?
The Hill [DC], by Cameron Joseph    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 8/24/2014 4:20:06 PM     Post Reply
Iowa was never supposed to be a Senate battleground for Democrats. Following two cycles where it was GOP missteps and subpar candidates who cost them winnable races, the tables have turned and it’s now Democrats who are scrambling to right Rep. Bruce Braley’s flagging campaign before it’s too late. Recent polls find a coin-flip race between Braley and Iowa state Sen. Joni Ernst(R), and but the national party increasingly worries it could be the tipping point for Senate control. “If the Democrats lose Iowa, of course it becomes much harder to keep the majority,” said one national Democratic strategist. “The race could very

British jihadists: How Britain

The Japanese hostage lies pinned to the sandy ground, bleeding from two long, slashing cuts across his face – perhaps carried out with the same knife that one of his jihadist interrogators is now pointing at him. “Where are you from? Don’t lie to me!” shouts the man, in English. The alleged “regime soldier”, in civilian clothes, thrashes desperately against his captors as his throat is cut: an 18-minute snuff movie, complete with sound, of unwatchable horror, linked to a Twitter account apparently belonging to the British extremist Anjem Choudary. Dreadful as the murder video of the journalist James Foley was,

A Week After Perry´s
Indictment, Legal Case Begins
Texas Tribune, by Terri Langford    Original Article

After a week of defiance, press conferences and an unusual rally to mark his booking on felony charges, Gov. Rick Perry’s legal team makes its first courtroom appearance on Friday, kicking off the more mundane legal process that could begin to offer a better glimpse at the case against the governor. A week ago Perry was indicted on two felony counts — coercion of a public servant and abuse of official capacity — over his threat to veto $7.5 million in state funds for Texas´ public integrity unit. Perry wanted Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg, whose office oversees that unit,

Eric Holder shows he isn´t
interested in real justice
Power Line, by Paul Mirengoff    Original Article

Eric Holder candidly acknowledged his objective in the Michael Brown case when he stated, “my commitment. . .is, long after this tragic story no longer receives this level of attention, the Justice Department will continue to stand with Ferguson.” One might have hoped that the Justice Department’s commitment in this instance would be to justice, rather than to standing with any particular group or geographic location. The two goals are at odds, although it’s possible that they could converge in the same result. Justice is supposed to be blind. Thus, it cannot stand with any group or entity. Before its processes

How a Real Air War
Could Demolish ISIS
Daily Beast, by Clive Irving    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 8/24/2014 5:09:19 AM     Post Reply
History has shown that air power can be a deciding factor in battles, if only the Arab states would use it against ISIS. With sickening snuff videos and viral postings of mass executions, ISIS has developed the projection of terror way beyond any predecessor. It has also managed to make itself seem more militarily formidable than it actually is. Even though its capacity as a training camp and assignment center for jihadists who can be sent to blow people up in Europe, the U.S. and Asia poses an extreme new danger, this should not be confused with its threat as a

Congress passes laws for reasons

Whether the trade of five senior Taliban terrorists for U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was politically or militarily wise remains a matter of intense disagreement in some quarters. One thing that is not controversial is that how the trade was done violated federal law, according to the Government Accountability Office, the independent government watchdog agency for Congress. On Thursday, the GAO wrote in response to queries from Republican senators that in ordering the trade, President Obama violated two laws. First, he violated the funding law for the Department of Defense this year, which forbade funds from being used to release

Welcome mat is out

So the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said the other day that when it comes to terrorist attacks by ISIS, certain countries “because of open borders and immigration issues, it’s an immediate threat.” Open borders? Immigration issues? What nation could Army Gen. Martin Dempsey possibly be speaking of? As it turns out, Dempsey is a good bureaucrat, an Obama Kool-Aid drinker from way back, and he was referring to the “southern border” of NATO. Whew, that’s a relief. Besides, the U.S. doesn’t have any borders anymore, open or otherwise. Who are these nattering nabobs of negativism, these nervous nellies screaming about ISIS? Gov.

At last, we know the reason why comedy writers don’t make fun of President Obama much. It turns out the man is completely unmockable. We learn this from Jim Downey, the longtime “Saturday Night Live” specialist in political japery. “If I had to describe Obama as a comedy project, I would say, ‘Degree of difficulty, 10 point 10,’” the writer says in the expanded new edition of the “SNL” oral history book, “Live from New York.” “It’s like being a rock climber looking up at a thousand-foot-high face of solid obsidian, polished and oiled,” Downey says. “There’s not a single thing to grab

Sometimes a round of golf is just a round of golf. And sometimes it reveals the ­essence of a man.

Local Winooski, Vermont restaurant Sneakers Bistro has removed a sign that read, “Yield Sneakers Bacon” citing opposition from a Muslim community member and safety concerns. The sign was put up as part of a city program that allows businesses to post an advertisement in an area where they have helped maintain city flowerbeds. The sign that read “Yield Sneakers Bacon” was removed after a woman, identifying herself as a Muslim, posted in an online community forum, stating she was personally offended by the sign, according to a WPTZ News report.

We wuz robbed. Admit it, you neo-cons, paleo-cons, compassionates, country clubbers and decline-to-states: right now, in a just, moral, ordered universe, Mitt Romney should be President. He was right on Iraq and Benghazi, right on healthcare, immigration, and Russia. But he was so mendaciously smeared that voters possessed the ludicrous mindset that Mitt didn’t “care about someone like me.” Feckless Republican operatives allowed data-mining splashed with voter fraud to seal the defeat. Twenty months later, numerous polls indicate significant voter remorse. This genuine sentiment has naturally provoked calls of “Run, Mitt,

FORE! Score? And seven trillion rounds ago, our forecaddies brought forth on this continent a new playground, conceived by Robert Trent Jones, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal when it comes to spending as much time on the links as possible — even when it seems totally inappropriate, like moments after making a solemn statement condemning the grisly murder of a 40-year-old American journalist beheaded by ISIL. I know reporters didn’t get a chance to ask questions, but I had to bounce. I had a 1 p.m. tee time at Vineyard Golf Club with Alonzo

Back in 1968, when I was 30, my entire life blew up. I had a life plan and it collapsed for no rational reason. I had been a newspaper reporter in New York but left the job to help editor Clay Felker start New York magazine. My marriage was breaking up and I was falling in love with Clay. The song that carried me through those years and all stages of my life is "Both Sides Now" by Joni Mitchell. I first heard the song in 1968, when Judy Collins´s version was a huge radio hit. But when I heard

We are not engaged in a religious war. This is not a confrontation between Islam and the West. To start from that premise is to place Isil (which should not be called by its presumptive title “Islamic State”) on precisely the ground it wishes to occupy. [Snip] The contest is not modern liberal democracy versus the Dark Ages. This is to impose meaning on what is, in truth, meaningless. There is nothing coherent or comprehensible at the heart of the homicidal Isil frenzy. It is just what it looks like: psychopathic nihilism. Indeed, it may be worse than counterproductive to

A British rapper whose father is awaiting trial in Manhattan for a pair of US embassy bombings is a leading suspect in the barbaric beheading of American journalist James Foley, it was revealed on Friday. Abdel-Majed Abdel Bary — who recently tweeted a photo of himself holding up a severed head — was among three Brits identified as possibly being the masked killer known as “John the Beatle.” Bary, 24, is the son of an Egyptian-born militant who is awaiting trial on terror charges tied to the deadly 1998 bombings of embassies in Kenya and Tanzania.Also under investigation are the brother

President Obama is still vacationing in Martha´s Vineyard as this is written. But he may have experienced a jolting encounter with a grim reality. The problem with Obama is too often there is no "there, there" with his words on foreign policy issues. Most infamously, he drew a red line Syria, warning of terrible consequences if the Assad regime used chemical weapons. Then, when the Assad regime did use chemical weapons, Obama unexpectedly deferred to Vladimir Putin to broker a deal that rendered the red line irrelevant. There is no doubt that Obama, to this point in his presidency, has been epically

Veteran journalist Dan Rather told Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter that the scores of pundits calling for action in Iraq, Syria, and elsewhere were reminiscent of the buildup to the 2003 Iraq War, which Rather called a blunder of “historic proportions,” and that hawks needed to be prepared to send their own kids to battle before they so cavalierly recommend it for others. Quoth Rather: “All of these people on television, some of whom I have enormous respect for, it unsettles me to hear them say, listen, we the United States have to ‘do something’ in Ukraine, we have to

Ferguson, MO - Conditions calmed this week in Ferguson after nights of sometimes violent unrest stemming from the fatal shooting of a black 18-year-old by a white police officer. But a delicate and crucial question lingers: What happens if the grand jury now considering the case doesn’t return a charge against the officer? The fear among some local residents and officials trying to maintain peace in Ferguson is that failure to charge the officer could stoke new anger among a community profoundly mistrustful of the legal system. Many say they just hope the grand jury’s decision, whatever it is, has irrefutable facts to back it up.
