In His Mug Shot, Rick Perry
Comes Out Smelling Like A
Texas Yellow Rose

Investor´s Business Daily, by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:PageTurner, 8/21/2014 2:04:32 PM

Leadership: Texas Gov. Rick Perry smiled confidently for his mug shot, as if to signal he would prevail over politicized big government. In fact, that may resonate as a campaign theme for voters weary of the same abuses. Until now, the prevailing "narrative" was that a governor under indictment on two counts of "abuses of power" would be political toast. Because even if the charges were baseless, as these are, the mug shot and the screeching headlines would bring certain opprobrium. It certainly happened that way for now-exonerated House leader Tom DeLay, whose career was ruined by the same tactics

Comments:
The Obama minions have just created a spectacular campaign poster with Smiling Rick and his beatific mugshot. They really are a stupid bunch.

Carl Cameron on Fox last night referred to the Governor´s expression as a "smirk". Now, where have we heard that before?

A small benign smile is not a smirk. I thought he looked great.

And Carl Cameron is as ugly as a mud fence.

Is anyone else getting sick of some of the Fox-ers? But where else to go?

Rick Perry looks great in his mug shot.
Wish he were president right now. Such a different country we would live in.

I turn the channel from Fox when I see either Karl Rove or Juan Williams.
Same old people with the same old talks.
You already know what they´re going to say before they open their mouth.

So, didn´t Reagan have a failed presidential bid before his successful one?

And, wasn´t Reagan also the target of elites who called him stupid?

And wasn´t Reagan swept into office on a landslide largely because of the huge damage done to the country by an idiot leftist before him?

Just saying. No, these are similarities only. They are not the same man. But who knows what Perry could grow to be in office?

I was going to comment about Governor Perry´s mug shot, but this IBD editorial pretty much says it all. So, I´ll just say ditto and Amen!

It´s interesting that good, old-fashioned, Texas style confidence and determination in a masculine smile seems always to be interpreted as smirking by less masculine men.

Somehow I don´t think the author really understands the story behind the Yellow Rose of Texas.

Texas won independence while the Mexican general was being entertained by a woman who was the yellow rose.

#3 There is a new network that you can get on Uverse and Verizon. It´s called One America News Network. They are conservative. The news is delivered straight with zero opinion and then they have conservative political shows like hannity. Fledgeling network but I like it so far. One big positive is that they don´t have Juan Williams or Karl Rove commentating.

If that Prosecutor is smart, he will drop the charges and make this whole thing go away. If he doesn´t, it will be great news for Perry. It will keep him front and center from now until the matter is settled. It will play Perry in the WHITE hat against the Democrats in Austin in the BLACK hats. We all know the guy in the White hat always wins! My money is on Perry!

"Texas Yellow Rose." Are they trying a backhanded insult? The original yellow rose of the song was the mulatto slave girl who kept Santa Anna busy while the Texans attacked at San Jacinto.

Nevertheless, back to the mug shots. Here is a link to the side-by-side photos. Rick definitely wins.

Argentina´s controversial Vice-President Amado Boudou received yet another judicial headache on the same day as he took over the role of the country´s interim head of the Executive as President Cristina Fernández travelled to the Vatican to meet with Pope Francis this Saturday. Prosecutor Gerardo Pollicita charged Boudou for the falsification of his DNI identity card. Boudou was scheduled to attend a hearing at the Buenos Aires courthouse, where the Criminal Appeals Court was going to review his indictment, over fake car documents, issued by Federal Judge Claudio Bonadío last month.

Vile ad bounces off McSally,

Do you know what you´re doing? That´s our question to the Americans for Responsible Solutions PAC after it aired a 30-second ad attacking Martha McSally, GOP candidate for Congress in District 2. The ad is a nasty piece of work. Demagoguery in heart-rending tones. A mother with sorrowful eyes appears on screen and tells the real-life story of a family horror. "My daughter was just 19 when she told her boyfriend their relationship was over. And he got a gun and shot her and my husband." Portraits emerge of the two victims — a pretty young girl and her father in military dress.

Russian strategic nuclear bombers carried out air defense zone incursions near Alaska and across Northern Europe this week in the latest nuclear saber rattling by Moscow. Six Russian aircraft, including two Bear H nuclear bombers, two MiG-31 fighter jets and two IL-78 refueling tankers were intercepted by F-22 fighters on Wednesday west and north of Alaska in air defense identification zones, said Navy Capt. Jeff A. Davis, a spokesman for the U.S. Northern Command and North American Aerospace Defense Command. Two other Bears were intercepted by Canadian jets on Thursday. “The group of Russian aircraft flew a loop south, returning westward toward

Russia has said the conduct of the Scottish referendum "did not meet international standards", with its observers complaining the count took place in rooms that were too big and that the procedure was badly flawed. In an apparent attempt to mirror persistent western criticism of Russia´s own elections, Igor Borisov – an accredited observer – said the poll failed to meet basic international norms. Borisov and three other Russians arrived in Edinburgh on Wednesday evening, the state news agency Ria Novosti reported. The team from Moscow´s Public Institute of Suffrage watched voting take place in the Scottish capital and the surrounding area.

TUCSON, Arizona – While the U.S. government acknowledges that there is still a lot to do about the crisis of Central American children entering the country, experts and activists believe that sooner rather than later a new wave of unaccompanied youngsters will arrive at the border with Mexico. “The situation in Central America hasn’t changed, we have the same problems of insecurity and violence, the lack of governability continues and jobs are still a problem – there is no work for young people who are members of cartels or street gangs,” the director of the Americas Program of the Center for

Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro on Thursday said media outlets CNN en español, NTN24, and the Miami Herald have launched an international campaign claiming "the state of Aragua had been hit by a virus that had killed thousands of Venezuelans in recent hours at Maracay (Central) Hospital, and that it was unknown whether Ebola was the virus involved." Maduro claimed the reports intended to cause "panic or psychological terror." Further, he said he had instructed the solicitor general to prepare international "legal actions" against the media outlets involved.

Gov. Jerry Brown has handed California cities some sought-after tools for controlling a massage industry boom. Cities and police officers have complained about a proliferation of massage parlors in recent years, saying the culprit was a 2008 law giving the nonprofit California Massage Therapy Council overriding authority for overseeing massage parlors. The issue was a priority for the League of California Cities. Brown announced on Thursday that he had signed Assembly Bill 1147, which restores some power to local jurisdictions – notably granting them land-use powers making it easier to shut down or restrict the number of massage establishments.

Politics: Amid applause, President Obama has made fighting Ebola in Africa a military priority, to protect U.S. health. So why is he doing nothing about the raft of new diseases that may be rolling in from our unguarded border? ´We can´t dawdle on this one," the president intoned this week, announcing that he would be putting 3,000 boots on the ground in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea, in a $600 million rescue effort for three nations badly hit by the dreaded Ebola epidemic.

The Venezuelan government certainly has an original way to muddy the waters. In the wake of recent statements by leaders of the College of Physicians of Aragua state, who reported the deaths of eight people caused by a “strange” disease, the governor of that state (Tareck El Aissami) replied – with his usual fascist-style tone – with an accusation against one of the complainants for belonging to the Acción Democrática opposition party, which is not a pathology but a constitutional right, and then threatened all those daring to spread the word on the outbreak with sending them to trial and

The informal rate of the US dollar hit a new historic peek on Wednesday in Argentina, breaking the 15 pesos barrier and closing at 15.10 pesos, pushed by rate speculation, and following yesterday’s sharp 25-cents climb. Economy minister Axel Kicillof blamed the ´holdouts´ and the US embassy for the latest surge. The stock exchange rate, that was the main reason for the “blue” dollar skyrocketing on Tuesday, fell back today to 13.63 pesos. Meanwhile, the blue-chip swap rate was up seven cents and closed at 13.49 pesos. Meanwhile, the US dollar climbed one cent to 8.43 pesos in Buenos Aires City

SOUTH PLAINFIELD — A borough council candidate is bowing out of his race after revelations that he allegedly shouted racist slurs while mooning patrons of a local diner. Joe Sorrentino, in a statement released Wednesday by his Democratic ticket, said he made a "stupid mistake" seven years ago, but learned from it. Local Republicans released police reports Wednesday detailing two separate incidents at the Sherbans Diner. "I regret what happened, and I have worked every single day to prove that I am not the man that the report says," Sorrentino said.

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

He was a leading figure in one of the biggest climate change marches to date. But it seems Robert F Kennedy Jr was not so forthcoming when it came to questions about his own carbon footprint. Confronted by a reporter asking if he would give up his phone and car, the environmental lawyer became visibly irate before grabbing the microphone and accusing her of ´destroying democracy´ as a member of the press. The interview in New York yesterday afternoon started with a conversation about the number of flyers produced for the event, which Kennedy Jr claimed was necessary to garner ´people power´.

Clinton’s relationship with Alinsky, and her support for his philosophy, continued for several years after she entered Yale law school in 1969, two letters obtained by the Washington Free Beacon show.

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.

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.

Perry made his remarks in a "One-on-One Conversation" with Texas Tribune CEO and Editor-in-Chief Evan Smith at the Texas Tribune Festival, an annual event organized by the online media outlet.

Fraternities at Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut, must start accepting women and all residential fraternities must become fully co-educational over the next three years, the school’s Board of Trustees has ruled. The decision was made “with equality and inclusion in mind,” school President Michael Roth and Trustee Chairman Joshua Boger wrote in an email to students on Monday, Business Insider reported. “Our residential Greek organizations inspire loyalty, community and independence. That’s why all our students should be eligible to join them.” The school has focused on issues with Greek life ever since a woman filed a lawsuit against Wesleyan two years ago

The forecast is for people, and lots of them. The People’s Climate March is expected to bring more than 100,000 people who want to save the planet to the city Sunday. The march to address climate change, billed as the largest in history, is occurring two days before President Obama and world leaders attend a summit dealing with the same issue at the United Nations. U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon — who has fought passionately against global warming — along with celebrities, CEOs and activists are expected to descend on the city for the massive event.

Gen. Michael Nagata is promising to build a new force to destroy ISIS, but lawmakers worry he has been given an impossible mission. As lawmakers prepared to take a risky and fateful vote on Obama’s plan to train and equip the Syrian rebels, the man who assured them it could be done was Gen. Michael Nagata, Obama’s point man for the mission to build an ISIS-killing army in Syria. There are skeptics both inside and outside the government who doubt Obama’s new plan to arm the Syrian rebels can work. First of all, the administration has said for years that the moderate
