Better Manager Than Barack Obama
Breitbart Big Government, by Wynton Hall    Original Article

A new Politico poll finds that Americans rate former President George W. Bush as a more effective manager than President Barack Obama. When asked the question "Which President do you believe was more effective at managing the basic functions of the federal government?" 38% of Americans said Bush, 35% said Obama, and 26% said "both about the same." The Politico poll, which surveyed districts and states with the most competitive midterm election races, also found that 64% of Americans believe the nation is "out of control." The Politico findings come on the heels of an explosive report by the Government

Voting with their feet? Crowds

A rare appearance on the campaign trail by President Obama on Sunday night was marred by a steady stream of crowd members leaving early and even a yelling heckler. The president had shown up at the Democratic rally in Upper Marlboro, Maryland, near Washington, to support Lieutenant Governor Anthony Brown, who is running for governor. With Obama´s approval levels hovering around record lows, many candidates from his party have been wary of appearing with the president during their election races because of his sagging popularity.

President Barack Obama cast his ballot Monday on the South Side as Illinois began early voting for the Nov. 4 election. The president, who headlined a rally Sunday night at Chicago State University, left his Kenwood home shortly after 11 a.m. and voted at Martin Luther King Jr. Community Service Center at 4314 S. Cottage Grove Ave. "Exercising our franchise, that´s where all of us are the same," he said as he prepared to vote. A woman shouted that she loved him. "I love you back," he said. Obama then approached the voting machines, which were lined up against a



Quarantine ends this week for NBC´s

NBC´s Dr Nancy Snyderman will be released from mandatory quarantine this week after being exposed to Ebola - but the network may drop the chief medical editor, reports claim. Snyderman, a surgeon who spent 17 years reporting for ABC News before joining NBC in 2006, came under fire for allegedly violating her quarantine and then refusing to explain what happened. The confusion sparked a furious response from thousands of viewers writing to the station to say they no longer trust Snyderman. It has left NBC with a major PR and credibility problem and bosses will now have to decide whether the medical

Gary man was taken into custody Saturday after first woman was found dead in Hammond, police said. Seven women were found dead this weekend across northwest Indiana, and officials said a man in custody confessed to their killings and provided information on where police could find three of their bodies. As of Monday morning, the bodies of seven women had been discovered throughout Hammond and Gary. Authorities said Darren Deon Vann, 43, of Gary, was in custody and charged in connection with the homicides. "There are court records indicating that he was here back in 2004 [and] 2005, but there

Ron Klain and Solyndra

Ron Klain is a sharp-elbowed Democratic political operative with no medical expertise. Tapping him as “Ebola czar” may not be the president’s best move when, as it is, no one can believe a word the Obama administration says. And that’s not just because Mr. Klain is yet another lobbyist recruited despite Mr. Obama’s vow that his administration would shun lobbyists. Klain was also a central player in the president’s Solyndra fraud, which soaked taxpayers for over half a billion dollars for the benefit of Obama cronies. In Faithless Execution, I recount the Solyndra fraud. It never got the attention it

Four people were shot to death, one man was fatally stabbed and another was beaten and strangled last week in Chicago. Three of the six murder victims were fatally shot over the weekend, when at least 19 other people were wounded by gunfire. The most recent killing happened when 18-year-old Alexandra Burgos was shot in the head while sitting in an apartment in the 5300 block of West Oakdale Avenue when gunfire erupted outside about 12:35 a.m., authorities said. Burgos, of an unidentified home address, died less than an hour later at Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center, according to the

If Obama’s chiding weekly address wasn’t enough to demonstrate that he has no sense of urgency in curtailing Ebola, how do the facts that Ron Klain has not even begun the job he’s so unqualified for, has no plans to travel to Dallas, the current epicenter, and instead a Latino vote wrangler was dispatched just as early voting in Texas begins grab you? Ebola Response Coordinator Klain is not in Dallas and does not have immediate plans to travel there.

What do you call that dysfunctional mindset when someone loses a ton of weight, but continues to view herself as fat? That´s right: anorexia nervosa. I caught a TV news segment that featured Kevin Newell, global chief brand officer for McDonald´s. Newell is black. Folks, I am talkin´ global chief brand officer. An internet search will reveal the undeniable truth that many blacks are bigwigs in corporate America. And yet, this reality does not appear to resonate with black America. Far too many blacks still believe the myth that while blacks are allowed to achieve in entertainment and sports,

A devastating new Politico poll reveals voters believe America has spun off its axis and is "out of control." "An overwhelming majority of voters in the most competitive 2014 elections say it feels as if events in the United States are ´out of control´ and expressed mounting alarm about terrorism, anxiety about Ebola and harsh skepticism of both political parties only three weeks before the Nov. 4 midterms," reports Politico. The poll, which surveyed states and districts in the most competitive congressional races, found that 64% of Americans believe "things in the U.S. feel like they are out of control right

What does Ted Cruz want a

Washington -- Don´t say Sen. Ted Cruz doesn´t have a plan. The Texas Republican took it upon himself to lay out the vision of what he thinks a Republican-led Congress should do in 2015 if they retake the Senate after the midterms, outlining a 10-point agenda in a USA Today op-ed published Sunday. With plans to abolish the IRS and repeal Obamacare, Cruz acknowledged that Republicans would likely face vetoes from President Barack Obama and filibusters from Senate Democrats. But the potential 2016 presidential candidate appeared to look further than next month´s election, saying obstruction from Democrats would drive Republican success in

Senate Budget Committee ranking member Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) told Breitbart News that black workers across America should be wary of supporting Democrats because of President Obama and other Democrats’ support for immigration policies that displace them economically. "A nation owes its first obligation to its own citizens,” Sessions said in an emailed statement. “But our current immigration policy advantages the citizens of other countries over our own. Undeniably, one of the groups most hurt economically by unjust immigration policies are African-American citizens.” Sessions points to a study that Harvard economist Dr. George Borjas published with the National Bureau of

Author and journalist Tina Brown thinks President Barack Obama‘s diminishing favorability with women is because he makes them feel “unsafe” about a variety of issues. Appearing Monday on Morning Joe, Brown reacted to a Politico report on how the president’s declining poll numbers with women has become a serious liability for Senate Democrats in the midterm elections. “I think they’re feeling unsafe,” Brown surmised of female voters. “They feel unsafe, economically; they’re feeling unsafe with regard to ISIS; they’re feeling unsafe about Ebola. What they’re feeling unsafe about is the government response to different crises.” Brown also suggested that the president’s own persona

Piotr Naskrecki was taking a nighttime walk in a rainforest in Guyana, when he heard rustling as if something were creeping underfoot. When he turned on his flashlight, he expected to see a small mammal, such as a possum or a rat. "When I turned on the light, I couldn´t quite understand what I was seeing," said Naskrecki, an entomologist and photographer at Harvard University´s Museum of Comparative Zoology. A moment later, he realized he was looking not at a brown, furry mammal, but an enormous, puppy-size spider. Known as the South American Goliath birdeater (Theraphosa blondi), the colossal arachnid is the world´s

TAMPA — They are the crown princes of saltwater aquariums, hovering in spectacular splendor, rich orange and white stripes; fins fanning out two or three times the size of their bodies. Lionfish are beautiful animals. But they aren’t nice. They wouldn’t help Nemo find his home. They would eat him and anything else that happened to swim by, in lightning-fast gulps. For three decades, lionfish, a native species of the Pacific and Indian oceans, have been wedging their way into the Atlantic, the Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico. Populations are now found along the Florida coast from Jacksonville to

First, some good news: the first group of people exposed to Ebola Patient One, Thomas Eric Duncan, have reached the end of their quarantine periods, and none of them appear to have contracted the virus. That’s at least 48 sets of prayers answered. Let us hope the first Ebola scare ends with only the two Duncan nurses infected, and they both make full recoveries. Such a happy ending would not excuse the government’s spectacular ineptitude in the face of the first Ebola contact on American soil. For the past couple of weeks, government elites and their media courtiers have been sneering

There are now nearly 18 million refugees and internally displaced persons in seven Muslim countries (Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Pakistan, Somalia, Syria, and Yemen), up from slightly over 7 million in 2011, according to the UN. (Snip) That is cause for desperation: unprecedented numbers of people have been torn from traditional society and driven from their homes, many with little but the clothes on their backs. There are millions of young men in the Muslim world sitting in refugee camps with nothing to do, nowhere to go back to, and nothing to look forward to. And there are tens of millions more

CHICAGO — Rarely one to leave anything to chance, President Barack Obama is playing it by ear this week as his administration´s response to the Ebola scare continues to evolve. After waking up in his own bed Monday at his family´s home in Chicago, Obama plans to vote early for the midterms and attend a fundraiser for Democrats. How he´ll spend the rest of the week is anyone´s guess. That´s because Obama´s schedule this week is a work in progress, in a departure from the normal practice in which the president´s schedule is previewed days in advance. The blank slate reflects the

Several years ago, the Israeli satirical series, Latma, produced this funny sketch on the Iranian mullahs’ push for a nuclear bomb. “The bomb, the bomb, I’ll get the bomb. Listen to me, Honey, it ain’t gonna be too long” sings the frolicking mullah in the online version of this humorous look at a most serious subject. The Israelis can joke about an Iranian nuclear bomb because they are on the front line. They know what it would mean. They don’t go on and on about “stability” in the Middle East the way our State Department types do. There hasn’t been stability

"We actually do have the legal authorities to do this," a Pentagon spokesman said on Monday, one day after U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel ordered the U.S. military to form an "expeditionary Ebola support team." "This isn´t going to violate Posse Comitatus," Pentagon spokesman Rear Admiral John Kirby told MSNBC´s "Morning Joe." The Posse Comitatus Act of 1878 says the Army (and later, the Air Force) may not be used to "execute the laws" of the United States. "This is nothing more than potential support, and I stress ´potential support,´ to civilian medical authorities -- if and only if they ask for that,"


Strict rules govern service contractors

Want to bid for a contract to care for the illegal immigrant children coming across the border? Make sure your staff members get Hepatitis vaccines and regular TB tests and can speak foreign languages — probably Spanish but maybe Mandarin, suggesting a surprising number of the children are coming from China. The federal government guarantees the children three meals a day, and they must take account of health, religious observance or vegetarian diets. The children also have a right to second helpings, according to contract documents issued last month seeking a transportation company to ferry the children within Texas. Even though the

The Boston Globe rounds up comparative studies of how life worked in East and West Germany during their forced 40-year experiment in radically different economic systems. In addition to the clear distinction in financial performance, the division of Germany produced a wealth of information about how similar groups of people, subject to free or totalitarian systems, develop differently in their personal attitudes and social views. The reunification of Germany that began 25 years ago this month has also given a unique look at how the two groups eventually converge, or not. Nothing here overturns the widely known economic lesson of

The message from Democrats has been the same since the end of the primary season this summer: The Obama 2012 model is coming to midterms and it’s going to save the Senate. The Obama model for re-electing a struggling incumbent requires holding down GOP base turnout and keeping Republican-leaning swing voters at home through a barrage of negative ads. Then it’s about juicing the Democratic base with the use of sophisticated targeting and expensive voter contact efforts. But as we get to the final days before the election, fresh questions arise about the strategy – first and foremost whether the

Perhaps it’s not surprising coming from our first Community Organizer president that the trait the administration claims is most needed in an “Ebola czar” — not that it’s been shown that such a position needs to be created in the first place — is, as Dr. Anthony Fauci of the National Institutes of Health put it, “somebody who’s a good organizer.” It’s been proven that rabble-rousing on the South Side of Chicago does not qualify one to lead anything more significant than a golf foursome (though you have to give Obama credit for spending his time doing what he’s best at,

Tart-tongued Tina Brown is at it again. On today´s Morning Joe, seeking to explain why Republicans are doing surprisingly well with women voters this year, Brown said: "they had their rabies shots." Brown was responding to a Politico article reporting that President Obama is under water with women voters, and that this is spilling over into Senate races. In Colorado, for example, a poll shows Republican Cory Gardner leading Dem Mark Udall by nine points among women. And even Alison Lundergan Grimes [who may or may not have voted for Barack Obama], only leads among women by two. Brown´s ugly

A day after President Obama appointed Ron Klain as Ebola czar to deal with the potential spread of the virus in this country, the Centers for Disease Control updated its website that contains recommendations for hospitals dealing with known or suspected cases of Ebola. In place of detailed recommendations for Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for hospital personnel, the page was changed to say "PPE Recommendations are forthcoming." Here is a screen capture of the page from Friday, October 17, 2014: Fox News reported this morning that "[n]ew guidelines for the treatment of Ebola expected to be issued Monday," but as of
