No White House Representatives At Memorial
Mass For Slain Journalist James Foley

Daily Caller, by Tristyn Bloom

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 8/26/2014 4:44:32 PM

No White House representatives were present at the memorial mass held for James Foley on Sunday, although the president did send three to Michael Brown’s funeral, CNS News reports. Foley, 40, was beheaded in a video released by the radical Islamist group ISIS last week. He had been in captivity since November 2012, when he was captured in Syria while reporting for international news service GlobalPost. Pope Francis called Foley’s parents days after his murder was made public, and sent a letter that was read aloud at the mass, held at Our Lady of the Holy Rosary in Rochester, N.H., Foley’s hometown. “The

Why would he send someone? No one in the obama regime gives a hoot about Foley. ´´Too bad, so sad...We guess´´ Plus #1´s post.

I´m probably in the minority here but I don´t think it would be appropriate for anyone from the administration to attend. NH officials should. If some members of the press wanted to fine. But this should be a private memorial, the family should be shown respect, it´s not something to politicize. The Brown funeral was all politics so why not go.

Maybe, #3, but if no-one were to attend James Foley´s memorial, then no-one should have gone to the Brown rally.

The Foley memorial was a Catholic ceremony, perhaps that was why it was "neglected"?

Probably also attendance would have again reminded people of the rude and insensitive behavior on the Island golf course after his perfunctory announcement of the atrocity.

This is low even for Obama. He didn´t bother going to Thatcher´s funeral, remember.

A Catholic Mass would have been too much for him to handle, he barely keeps up his Christian facade as it is.

#7 I understand your point. I´m trying to think as a parent. My children are sacred. If for some reason I lost one early I would never want them to be used as a political prop. I´m sure the Foley´s feel the same. It´s a matter of values and love of god. Sadly the Brown funeral is a symbol of the moral breakdown in society. A child´s remembrance should never be used for political purposes.

#11, over the weekend I went to pay my respects to friends and relations buried at Arlington and found myself at General Greene´s grave. No headstone yet. Just a little metal frame marker surrounding a paper with necessary information. Removed Canada goose scat from the dirt (it isn´t yet sodded over)said a prayer, and thought what a crazy time we live in. RIP you heroes, you honorable men: Harold Greene, Thomas Gramith, Russell Coles, Albert Blithe et al.

In light of my two lists of President Obama’s top 10 constitutional violations — for 2011 and 2013 – a few readers have asked me to follow up on my short statement about Attorney General Eric Holder’s tenure by putting together a list for him. I had started thinking about that, but then came across this item by Hans von Spakovsky (who co-authored with John Fund a book on Holder’s missteps), which details Holder’s “7 Worst Actions as Attorney General.” Here’s a summary of the list: Operation Fast and Furious, for which the House of Representatives held him in contempt.

5 Reasons to Ignore Negative

Pat Roberts is going to win in Kansas. A new USA Today/Suffolk University poll has his challenger, Greg Orman, beating him by five points, 46% to 41%. Here are five reasons that won’t happen: 1. President Barack Obama is widely disliked in Kansas. His approval rating is 33%, meaning that the overwhelming share of voters who turn out will vote Republican at the federal level. 2. Pat Roberts is a known quantity. He’s a well-known figure in the state. His approval ratings might have taken a beating of late, but Sen.

Why is anyone from Liberia, Sierra Leone, or Guinea — the source of the Ebola outbreak — being permitted to enter the United States? The Liberian Ebola victim in Dallas seems to have used a visitor visa to travel here “to visit family members.” The idea that we allow people from those countries to board planes for the U.S. so long as they don’t have a fever is absurd. There are more than 13,000 people from those three countries with visas to enter the U.S. Here’s a list of African countries with travel restrictions on Ebola-affected countries — what’s our problem?

A federal judge recently rejected a lawsuit filed by environmental groups to prevent the U.S. Bureau of Land Management from issuing oil and gas leases for parts of central Nevada. The case represents a small battle in protracted war to de-industrialize the West. The activists employ a familiar battle plan: Scope out an economic project, sue the government to block its approval, and sit back as legal costs mount. Recently, these groups have grown more litigious — “sue and settle” cases, where activists sue the government to negotiate settlements with often-friendly bureaucrats behind closed doors, more than doubled over the last

How Iran Scammed America
Out of a Nuclear Deal

You have to salute the rulers of Iran. They stand on the verge of scoring a stunning diplomatic triumph over the United States. Even more impressive: They did it all on bluff. Their adversaries possessed material advantages in terms of money, technology, military power, and more. But Iran’s rulers had clarity of purpose and the will to win. Without these qualities, the adversaries’ material advantages have seeped away. A year ago, the rulers of Iran faced disaster. Their currency had lost three-quarters of its value, due in largest measure to the tough economic sanctions drafted by Senators Mark Kirk and Robert

Obama’s book cooking economic recovery

Just as he does every election year, President Obama is pivoting to the economy. Why? Because the economy is, and always has been, the No. 1 issue for American voters. Mr. Obama swept into office with feel-good promises of a post-partisan paradise, but it was his pledge of prosperity that twice got him elected. In 2008, voters were smashed by the economic meltdown that occurred just weeks before Election Day. Republican Sen. John McCain was on record as saying the economy wasn’t exactly his strong suit (“The issue of economics is not something I’ve understood as well as I should,” he

Judge Rules Larry Craig Must Repay
Campaign Funds Used in Bathroom Scandal

Larry Craig’s 2007 arrest in a Minnesota airport bathroom sex sting continues to cost the former senator. A federal judge in the District of Columbia has ordered the Idaho Republican to pay $242,535 to the Department of the Treasury. U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson ruled Craig must repay $197,533 in campaign funds from the Craig Committee, which functioned as “little more than an alter-ego for Senator Craig himself,” plus a $45,000 fine. Federal Election Commission officials filed the complaint against Craig in 2012, alleging he illegally converted campaign money for personal use because the legal expenditures were not “made in connection

Earlier this week, First Lady Michelle Obama went to Milwaukee to make a speech on behalf of Mary Pratt, the Democrat gubernatorial candidate challenging Scott Walker. Prior to the event, aides for both the White House and the Pratt campaign told reporters they could not interview anyone in the crowd. This angered veteran Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reporter Meg Kissinger who said she was "creeped out" by this behavior on her Facebook page. The next time the Obama White House does this to reporters, they should tell them to fold it five ways and stick it where the moon don´t shine. They should

The U.S. Navy’s latest shipbuilding plan would see its attack submarine fleet diminish from 55 to 41 boats in the next decade and a half. That decision, confirmed in August, was eclipsed by the advance of ISIL, war in Gaza, and sedition in Ukraine. But the Navy’s announcement—the single-largest strategic consequence of this administration’s defense cuts—has the most far-reaching ramifications of the summer’s events. The United States faces the prospect of drawn-out tension leading to possible conflict on two fronts, the Middle East and the Far East. Of the two, Chinese ambition will require more attention. It is supported by

The Great Big Gubernatorial

Yesterdays’ big roundup of the outlook for the GOP in the Congressional races spurred a predictable amount of “I’m staying home, the GOP is a bunch of sellouts, I’ll start voting again when the party stands for principle and nominates some true conservatives” responses. You may have seen my reaction here. On to the gubernatorial races… Let’s begin with the states where Democrats said they would be competitive… and they just aren’t. Wendy Davis is not going to derail Greg Abbott in Texas; she’s probably going to have the biggest hype-to-performance ratio of this cycle. Vincent Sheheen finished surprisingly close in 2010

News that a man has been diagnosed with the virus in Dallas days after arriving from Liberia is alarming—and to prevent more U.S. cases, certain rules must never be broken. The announcement that a case of Ebola virus has been diagnosed in a Dallas hospital sent a chill through the medical, public health, and basic citizen communities. I know my jaw surely dropped as far as it has dropped since 2001, when the word of the first anthrax case in New York appeared in my email. As the details have begun to emerge, many people are wondering the same thing: Will

The president and his top foreign policy aides met at the White House on Tuesday "to discuss our comprehensive strategy to counter the threat posed by [ISIS]," the administration said in a statement. The meeting came as CNN reported that Turkish soldiers and tanks were massing at the border amid concerns about a flood of refugees entering the country ahead of advancing ISIS fighters.

A new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) report reveals that President Barack Obama has attended only 42.1% of his daily intelligence briefings (known officially as the Presidential Daily Brief, or PDB) in the 2,079 days of his presidency through September 29, 2014. The GAI report also included a breakdown of Obama’s PDB attendance record between terms; he attended 42.4% of his PDBs in his first term and 41.3% in his second. The GAI’s alarming findings come on the heels of Obama’s 60 Minutes comments on Sunday, wherein the president laid the blame for the Islamic State’s (ISIS) rapid rise squarely at

President Barack Obama has taken a lot of flack since his Sunday night “60 Minutes” interview, in which he blamed the intelligence community for his failure to tackle the threat posed by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. And that is right and proper. Because not only was his excuse of blaming us a lie, but when questioned on his lie, White House press secretary Josh Earnest doubled down with a whole new lie — both of which are easily, publicly proven false. On Sunday, Obama said the intelligence community had underestimated the rise of ISIS, saying in an interview

The Obama administration found itself scrambling on Tuesday to defend President Barack Obama for his lackluster 42% attendance record on daily intelligence briefings, a finding from a new report issued by the non-partisan Government Accountability Institute (GAI). When asked about the GAI revelation on Fox News, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki appeared flustered and unprepared. "Well, I have no validation of those statistics," said Psaki. "There are a range of ways that you can get your intelligence briefings on the road, in the White House, and I know that he receives those whenever he can."

Well, that didn’t take long. Just two weeks into the new season of “The View,” co-hosts Rosie O’Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg tore into each other during a commercial break — in front of their stunned studio audience. The spat erupted Thursday after Goldberg interrupted O’Donnell to go to a commercial break before the mother of five was finished commenting in a “Hot Topic” discussion about spanking children on the ABC gabfest. O’Donnell refuses to wear an earpiece to stay in contact with producers while the live show is airing, so she had no clue it was time to stop talking.

Sacramento, Calif. - Gov. Jerry Brown on Tuesday signed legislation imposing the nation's first statewide ban on single-use plastic bags, driven to action by a buildup of litter and damage to aquatic ecosystems. A national coalition of plastic bag manufacturers immediately said it would seek a voter referendum to repeal the law, which is scheduled to take effect in July 2015. Under SB270, plastic bags will be phased out of large grocery stores starting next summer and convenience stores and pharmacies in 2016. The law allows grocers to charge a fee of at least 10 cents for using paper bags. State Sen. Alex Padilla, D-Los Angeles,

President Obama this week committed professional suicide. Let me explain. There is a theory in politics that once a leader has fired 50 or more people from his or her administration, he or she is finished. The reason being that by creating so many enemies ‘outside the tent’, the tent itself becomes too deluged with poisonous bile to avoid sinking into a quagmire of back-stabbing ignominy. Obama went a lot further than firing 50 people. He managed to single-handedly alienate 200,000 employees in the American intelligence agencies by going on 60 Minutes and ruthlessly chucking them all under a bus

Count House Speaker John Boehner as a fan of Jeb Bush for president. He also hasn´t spoken to Texas GOP Sen. Ted Cruz in two years. The driving issue of the 2016 election will be “competence,” and if former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush runs, “he’s got a real shot” at winning, the Ohio Republican told the Cincinnati Enquirer on Tuesday. Boehner applauded Bush’s ability to “talk about Republican issues better than most anybody that we’ve got out there,” approving of his “real record of reform” as Florida’s governor from 1999 to 2007. He also called potential candidates Ohio Gov. John
