Perry reveals details on his

Posted By:JoniTx, 8/26/2014 3:28:13 PM

MIDLAND, Texas- So who´s Texas Gov. Rick Perry wearing as part of his bookish new look? The Republican´s stylish specs are Inspiration by designer Jean Lafont. His wife Anita picked them out. While attending the groundbreaking of an Occidental Petroleum complex in Midland on Tuesday, the governor showed The Associated Press his glasses. He´s worn them about a year, trying to soften his cowboy image for one that´s more humble. The glasses are a centerpiece of his rehabilitation effort nationally, following a disastrous 2012 presidential bid. Until now, though, little was known about them. Perry didn´t say how much they cost,

Last snarky sentence of a snarky little hit piece:

Despite being indicted on two felony counts for abuse of power, Perry is seriously considering a 2016 White House run.

I suppose it was important to add the phrase "despite being indicted" to the story.

Yet, I can´t recall any AP story about Bill Clinton that inserts "despite being impeached".

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has been through the political battles more than any major politician since Richard Nixon – and she has a lot in common with her former foe. But despite the blanket coverage of the former First Lady and her ubiquitous husband, there are still a good number of interesting facts about her that have been buried over the years. She likes to get her drink on. Hanging out in Cartagena in 2012 with her staff at the Summit of the Americas, then-Secretary of State Clinton was photographed with her hair down and a drink in

BROWNSVILLE — At the groundbreaking ceremony Monday for SpaceX´s commercial spaceport on the Texas Gulf coast, the founder of the aerospace company said the survival of mankind may hang on colonization of other planets. The company´s future commercial orbital spaceport in Boca Chica, near Brownsville, could be a key player in the race to Mars, said Elon Musk, who is the CEO. “I´m an optimist,” Musk said. “I wouldn´t have gotten into the rocket business otherwise.” Musk said SpaceX expects to begin construction on the site by mid-2015 and launch at least one commercial flight per month by late 2016.

Why Did Alison Lundergan Grimes

EMILY´s List, an organization dedicated to electing women who oppose legal restrictions on abortion and support taxpayer-funding of abortion, held a fundraiser in New York City today, but one notable name was dropped from the list of speakers: Alison Lundergan Grimes, Kentucky´s Democratic senatorial candidate. (Photo) As the screenshot above (which was sent along by a Republican source) shows, EMILY´s List had touted Grimes as a speaker at the event, but she is no longer listed as a speaker. A spokeswoman for Grimes did not reply to emails asking why the Democratic candidate canceled her appearance at the event.

A Mother in Jail for Helping Her
Daughter Have an Abortion

On Sept. 12th, Jennifer Whalen, a 39-year-old mother of three in the rural town of Washingtonville, Pa., went to jail to begin serving a 9-to-18-month sentence. Whalen’s crime was, in effect, ordering pills online that her older daughter took in the first several weeks of an unplanned pregnancy, when she was 16, to induce a miscarriage. The medication was a combination of mifepristone (formerly called RU-486) and misoprostol. The drugs have been available from a doctor with a prescription in the United States since 2000 and are used around the world to induce miscarriage. Recent research increasingly suggests that early

Obama doesn’t look very happy these days. His face is drawn, his hair graying, his voice a monotone. To keep going he needs a lot of luxury vacations, therapeutic golf with low-level lackeys, and non-stop fawning from billionaire Democrats at fundraisers. He seems to have tuned out so completely that he hasn’t a clue what’s happening. Despite a year of briefings, ISIS was a complete a surprise to him. The only outside stimulus that got a reaction from the commander in chief was his abysmal poll numbers. It’s tough be to a pathological narcissist when the applause stops. The destruction

There’s been lots of debate lately in housing circles about the impact of student debt on home ownership. Now there’s a new study out that attempts to put a number on that impact: 414,000. That’s how many home sales will not happen this year because of high levels of student loan debt, according to a report from John Burns Consulting, an Irvine-based firm that advises home builders. That’s equal to about 8% of all home sales, and enough to dent the housing industry by $83 billion a year. The report estimates that the number of households under age 40 that

The extremist group Islamic State will drive the United States to its "death, grave and destruction," a spokesman for the militants declared in a recording that also called on Muslims living in the West to kill civilians. "You will pay the price when this crusade of yours collapses, and thereafter we will strike you in your homeland, and you will never be able to harm anyone afterward," Abu Muhammad Adnani said in a 42-minute speech that both taunted and threatened the U.S.-led coalition combating the Islamic State.

Former Vice President Al Gore made his exit from Sunday´s climate change march in New York City in a Chevrolet Suburban SUV after speaking to reporters about renewable energy. Gore asked a security officer, "You want me here?" before stepping into the SUV, which appears to be a Suburban LT model, as seen in a logo behind the passenger door Gore entered. It is unknown if the large Chevy SUV was a flex fuel vehicle. Breitbart News asked the environmental activist about the financial costs of renewable energy, as well as his own house—a mansion in Nashville which has previously been

Some of an estimated 100 Americans who have traveled to the Middle East and joined terrorist organizations like the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) have returned to the United States, a senior administration official said Monday. At a Monday briefing previewing an administration push for a United Nations resolution to prevent the flow of foreign citizens into conflict zones to join terrorist groups, a senior administration official said that an estimated 15,000 individuals had entered Iraq and Syria to join groups like ISIS and the al Nusra Front. The official said that 2,000 of those foreign fighters were

President Obama is “obviously concerned” that an intruder jumped the fence at the White House and made it inside the front door, a spokesman said Monday. “He did indicate as you would expect that his family was in the White House, so he is obviously concerned,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest said Monday. Mr. Obama and his daughters actually had just departed on Marine One for Camp David Friday evening when the intruder, identified by the Secret Service as Oscar Gonzalez, an Iraq war veteran, climbed the fence and dashed to the North Portico. First lady Michelle Obama also wasn’t

DES MOINES, Iowa – Democratic candidates finally have found an Obama they´re not afraid to be seen with. While President Obama dutifully avoids battleground races this midterm season, first lady Michelle Obama is tiptoeing into the fray in a bid to drum up votes for party allies in tight contests. The president´s better half stumped for the first time in a 2014 race earlier this month, hitting the trail for Georgia Senate Democratic candidate Michelle Nunn. And she´s expected to travel to Iowa soon in support of Senate candidate Rep. Bruce Braley. The logic behind dispatching the first lady isn´t hard

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin recently invited Breitbart News Senior Editor-at-Large Joel Pollak to her home in Alaska for dinner to discuss his new book, Wacko Birds: The Fall (and Rise) of the Tea Party. In a discussion posted on The Sarah Palin Channel, Palin asked Pollak about the book while preparing dinner for Pollak, her dad, mother, and husband Todd. Pollak told Palin, who is considered the North Star of the conservative movement in opposition to President Barack Obama´s desire to "fundamentally change" America, that Wacko Birds is really a "political history of the last four years."

Employers won’t hire her. She’s been berated with epithets like “dirty Jew.” Federal agents have guarded her house because of death threats.

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

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

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.

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 met with Alinsky several times in 1968 while writing a Wellesley college thesis about his theory of community organizing. 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.

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 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.

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

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.
