What Has Become of Liberalism?
National Review Online, by Jonah Goldberg

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 9/4/2014 5:30:03 AM

Barack Obama encouraged people to compare him to Abraham Lincoln. For instance, here’s the opening from a 2007 ABC News piece co-written by Jake Tapper: Standing outside the Historic Old State Capitol building where Abraham Lincoln gave a famous speech condemning slavery and calling for the United States to unite, Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., a 45-year-old with two years of federal legislative experience under his belt, today announced that he will claim the mantle of Lincoln and as president heal a divided nation. The piece goes on: But most of all Springfield allowed Obama to immodestly and continuously compare himself to Lincoln. It was

Moral sickness. Even the ability to be fooled by Obama is a moral sickness.

The best thing about having Obama as President is that he has showed the U.S. what CAN happen when a tyrant is elected to office. He has shown over and over that laws, the legal system, the courts, and the underlying documents of the foundation of the Country, such as the U.S. Constitution, mean nothing, and the wrong person in office can simply run roughshod over them or circumvent them. We need legislation that will enforce the LIMITS of the office of the President. There are no 3 branches of Government at the current time. My opinion.

It is very naive to think that this isn´t by design. Read the socialist books, they know they have to tear down the fabric of our society before they can install their utopia in its place.

The Twenty-Eight Pages
New Yorker, by Lawrence Wright    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 9/9/2014 9:16:05 AM     Post Reply
On the bottom floor of the United States Capitol’s new underground visitors’ center, there is a secure room where the House Intelligence Committee maintains highly classified files. One of those files is titled “Finding, Discussion and Narrative Regarding Certain Sensitive National Security Matters.” It is twenty-eight pages long. In 2002, the Administration of George W. Bush excised those pages from the report of the Joint Congressional Inquiry into the 9/11 attacks. President Bush said then that publication of that section of the report would damage American intelligence operations, revealing “sources and methods that would make it harder for us to

Perry lawyers want indictment dismissed
Dallas Morning News [TX], by Christy Hoppe    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 9/9/2014 9:11:36 AM     Post Reply
Defense lawyers for Gov. Rick Perry filed court papers asking that the judge dismiss the criminal case against the governor before any trial. The lawyers argue that the case against Perry for coercing a public official and misusing his office are based on laws that too vaguely written and overly broad to be enforceable. The motion to quash the indictment repeats many of the same arguments presented in a request for habeas corpus made last month, saying the charges are unconstitutional. Perry is accused of breaking the law when he pledged to veto $7.5 million to a public corruption unit headed by Travis

Zalmay Khalilzad, a former U.S. ambassador to Afghanistan and Iraq, is being investigated for money laundering, and several of his wife´s bank accounts have been frozen in connection with the probe. The Justice Department investigation only became public on Sunday, when a blogger found relevant documents in a garbage container used by a state prosecutor´s office in Vienna and posted them online. A day later, Austrian magazine Profil reported on the case. Since then, Austrian courts have instructed employees to be more careful with sensitive information, a court spokeswoman told Bloomberg. The investigation centers on a $1.5 million transfer from Khalilzad´s bank account

America´s incredible shrinking labor force
Washington Examiner [DC], by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 9/9/2014 5:23:04 AM     Post Reply
It came as quite a disappointment last Friday when the Labor Department announced that the U.S. economy created only 142,000 net jobs in August. Even worse, this anemic number came with a downward revision of a combined net 28,000 jobs for the previous two months. Now add to these a third unwelcome piece of news: The U.S. labor force participation rate — that is, the share of working-age Americans who are either working or seeking work — has returned to a multi-decade low of 62.8 percent, down from 65.9 percent before the recession. This number, which has been in a

Obama’s Untruth, Inc.
National Review Online, by Victor Davis Hanson    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 9/9/2014 5:19:40 AM     Post Reply
We can usefully view the Obama administration’s chronic untruthfulness as a sort of multifaceted corporation of untruth, with all sorts of subsidiaries. THE BALD LIES OF POLITICAL EXPEDIENCY Remember the al-Qaeda-is-on-the-run 2012-election talking point? It was mostly a lie. The administration deliberately released to sympathetic journalists only those documents from the so-called Osama bin Laden trove that revealed worry and dissension among the terrorists. Then it nourished essays by pet journalists trumpeting the decline of al-Qaeda. Disturbing memos that confounded that narrative, as Weekly Standard journalist Steven F. Hayes recently noted, were kept back. “On the run” was dropped after the 2012

On September 11 and 12, 2012, in an attack by Islamist militants on the U.S. Diplomatic Compound (unofficially sometimes called a consulate) in Benghazi, Libya, Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens was killed — the first death of an American ambassador by a violent act since 1979. Chris Stevens had earned the admiration and respect of many local Benghazans by making improved relations between Libyans and Americans his calling — one that he was willing to take great risks to accomplish. Also killed that fateful night was the affable State Department computer specialist Sean Smith, known ironically to his friends in the

When presidential boredom is not an option
Washington Times, by Wesley Pruden    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 9/9/2014 4:59:23 AM     Post Reply
President Obama’s hair, like the locks of most of the presidents in their second terms, has turned white. He says he doesn’t get enough sleep, but he’s nevertheless energized, not exhausted. Bored is more like it. There should be plenty to keep the president from nodding off. He can see that the world is on fire, and there’s nobody to put out the flames. Immigrant waves continue to pour across the southern border. Vladimir Putin is trying to rebuild the Soviet empire and making it look easy. The economy continues permanent residence in the Dumpster. Even with the usual presidential

Obamacare’s defenders are busy declaring victory again. Ezra Klein is touting a new survey of Obamacare benchmark premiums in some regions of the country as evidence that the law is defying the predictions of critics and working to cut costs rather than increase them. But, as Bob Laszewski notes, the truth about Obamacare implementation is far less rosy than the latest round of cheerleading would indicate. For starters, the federal and state websites remain largely a dysfunctional mess, although the media isn’t really covering the story anymore. The supposed “fix” that allowed millions of consumers to sign up with plans on

Obama, ignoring broken windows
New York Daily News, by Richard Cohen    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 9/9/2014 4:42:29 AM     Post Reply
Who will pick up the pieces? "All politics is local,” the late Speaker of the House Tip O’Neill famously said. How right he was. The world today is suffering from the failure of President Obama to apply a school of law enforcement that happened to originate in O’Neill’s hometown, Boston, and goes by the moniker “broken windows.” The problem, simply stated, is that Obama was deaf to the sound of tinkling glass. The term “broken windows” comes from a 1982 article in the then-Boston-based Atlantic Monthly. Its title was in fact “Broken Windows,” and the authors were two academics, James Q. Wilson

The Distraction of Obama’s Character
PJ Media, by Andrew Klavan    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 9/9/2014 4:34:53 AM     Post Reply
Toward the end of the romantic comedy film The American President, Michael Douglas’s President Shepherd tells the assembled press corps, “Being president of this country is entirely about character.” This 1995 movie was made as a way of rescuing the scurrilous character of Bill Clinton from accusations of womanizing. It’s a pleasant and entertaining film but this line of dialogue, like just about everything else in the picture, is untrue. Being president of this country is somewhat about character — everything in life is — but it is also, very much, about ideas. There have been times over this past summer when

Obama’s immigration delay
might not have been raw politics.
But it was raw math.

President Obama´s announcement this weekend that he was backtracking on his pledge to reform immigration policies by the end of the summer was quickly attacked by advocates, Republicans, and members of his own party. House Speaker John Boehner said that the decision "smacks of raw politics" -- which is both somewhat ironic and almost certainly true. One problem that the president and Democrats face is that Hispanic voters are much less likely to vote than other demographic groups -- and that´s especially true of voters in the states that will determine whether or not Democrats hold the Senate.

The Saudis Can Crush ISIS
New York Times, by Nawaf Obaid & Saud Al-Sarhan    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 9/9/2014 4:26:07 AM     Post Reply
RIYADH, Saudi Arabia — As ISIS continues to grow, many commentators have been pointing to Saudi Arabia as the source of the group, and most assume that the United States is the only force that can stop it. Both of these assertions are incorrect. Saudi Arabia is not the source of ISIS, it’s the group’s primary target. ISIS’ core objective is to restore the caliphate (an Islamic empire led by a supreme leader), and because Saudi Arabia is the epicenter of Islam and the custodian of the Two Holy Mosques in Mecca and Medina, ISIS’ road to the caliphate lies through the

State Department spokesman Jen Psaki makes me psick. If you read P.G. Wodehouse, you know the “P” in her name is silent, as in “phthisis,” “psychic” and “ptarmigan” (as Wodehouse’s Psmith explains). And Psaki’s colleague Marie Harf makes me barf. Together Psaki and Harf give the catastrophic foreign policy of the Obama administration a lighter than air, Valley Girl kind of feel. It’s a novel use of expressive form. Paul Mirengoff explores their weightlessness in the adjacent post. As Paul recounts, Harf came to the defense of Psaki when Bill O’Reilly had the temerity to utter pslightly pscathing words about Psaki

Less than 48 hours ahead of a planned address to the nation on how the U.S. plans to combat Islamic State terrorists operating in Iraq and Syria, President Obama dined at the White House Monday with a slate of foreign policy experts. Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, and Secretary of State John Kerry were joined by some of Washington’s most established foreign policy hands, including Clinton National Security Adviser Sandy Berger and Zbigniew Brzezinski, who held the same position during the Carter administration. Former Obama national security adviser Tom Donilon was also at the dinner, as was former Undersecretary for Defense Policy

The beatings of three people in a Kroger parking lot Saturday night will not be investigated as a hate crime, according to police officials. Memphis Police Department director Toney Armstrong said he’s had lots of calls asking how the investigation would proceed but said there is “not sufficient enough evidence to investigate this as a hate crime.” “I know this has a lot of racial undertones,” Armstrong said during a news conference Monday at Memphis City Hall. “I’ve gotten a lot of calls and I know (Memphis Mayor A C Wharton) has as well.

In a few days president Obama will unveil his strategy to destroy ISIS to a waiting public. (Snip) However the basic outlines of the strategy itself have emerged from information already available to the press. A Los Angeles Times story suggests that Obama will rely on proxies to fight ISIS at three levels: on the ground, within the region and in the West. Kerry invokes comparisons to the Sunni Awakening, seeking to recall the days when al-Qaeda in Iraq was beaten by George Bush. Obama plans to organize the Sunni Arabs to fight ISIS.

Joan Rivers "banned" First Lady Michelle Obama, pop star Adele and talk show host Chelsea Handler from attending her funeral just weeks before her sudden death. The comedienne sent Hollywood into mourning when she died Thursday, days after suffering a cardiac arrest during a routine throat procedure. Her funeral was held in her New York on Sunday and attracted stars including Hugh Jackman, Whoopi Goldberg, Kelly Osbourne and Sarah Jessica Parker, and it has now emerged Rivers had previously drawn up a wish-list of famous faces who should stay away.

Half of all bird species in North America — including the bald eagle — are at risk of severe population decline by 2080 if the swift pace of global warming continues, the National Audubon Society concluded in a study released Monday. "The scale of the disruption we´re projecting is a real punch in the gut," said Gary Langham, chief Audubon scientist. (Snip) By 2080, the bald eagle, the national symbol of the United States, could see its habitat decrease by 75%, the report says.

Washington — Panera Bread on Monday asked customers not to bring firearms into its restaurants, joining a growing list of retail and fast-food chains that have declared their establishments gun-free zones. The company said it wants to ensure that "customers and associates feel comfortable and welcome” in its restaurants. “We ask that guns not be brought into this environment unless carried by an authorized law enforcement officer," the eatery chain, which boosts 1,800 locations in the United States and Canada, said in a statement Monday.

The Obama administration will make a decision on executive action to prevent corporations from leaving the country in the "very near future," Treasury Secretary Jack Lew said Monday morning. Speaking at an event on business taxes at the Urban Institute in Washington, Lew placed the responsibility on Congress to address so-called tax inversions, but said that the administration was prepared to step in if lawmakers don´t move quickly enough. Inversions are tax maneuvers in which corporations buy firms in low-tax countries in order to place their headquarters in that country. Such deals have grown in number in recent months, with

Megyn Kelly tonight brought viewers the first part of her contentious showdown with Professor Ward Churchill, best known for his controversial comments about the “little Eichmanns” who were in the World Trade Center when the planes hit on September 11th. Churchill came under intense scrutiny and was fired by the University of Colorado at Boulder. What concerned Kelly most in the first part of the interview was that “little Eichmanns” comment, the argument being that Eichmann played a role in horrible atrocities even though he didn’t directly carry out the Final Solution, which he views as similar to the financial
