Greg Gutfeld: Obama ´rage

Daily Caller, by Jeff Poor    Original Article

On Thursday’s broadcast of Fox News Channel’s “The Five,” co-host Greg Gutfeld challenged President Barack Obama’s defense of U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice in his press conference on Wednesday. Gutfeld, the author of “The Joy of Hate: How to Triumph over Whiners in the Age of Phony Outrage,” said the mixed signals coming from the White House are as unprofessional as they are unpersuasive. “So, responding to the Benghazi mess, President Obama said Susan Rice had the best intel available,” Gutfeld said. “[B]est intel available? The White House caterer knew this was a terror attack before Obama

Record executive and producer David Geffen finalized a deal last week to buy the luxury penthouse apartment owned by socialite Denise Rich on Manhattan´s Upper East Side for record-smashing $54million. Rich, 68, the Grammy-nominated songwriter who renounced her American passport in November, was originally asking $65million for the stunning 12,000 square-foot Fifth Avenue dwelling, but settled for a sum nearly 17 per cent lower than her asking price, according to the Wall Street Journal. Still, the deal marks the highest price ever paid for a co-op in Manhattan,

When we celebrate Thanksgiving in a little over a week, after being thankful for family and friends, for health and comfort, for food and shelter; it may be time to be thankful for the left. I have seen far too much despair and defeatism, too many comments that suggest there is no hope for America and the only thing left to do is pour a glass of wine and watch the sun go down.I understand the place of despair and pain that such words come from. But they also testify to how sheltered Americans are from the cold winds outside.



Gun owners enter the fight of our lives

The NRA has been saying all along that Barack Obama would unleash an assault on our Second Amendment freedoms if he won a second term. It sure didn’t take long for him to prove us right. Just hours after Obama won re-election last Tuesday, his administration endorsed a new effort by the global gun grabbers at the United Nations to draft a gun ban treaty early next year. The official starting point for the new talks is last year’s failed draft, which contains provisions that threaten our sovereign right to keep and bear arms through an international gun

This will surely cheer up Republicans suffering from post-election depression. Former President Bill Clinton told Mitt Romney Monday he would have won the presidency if not for Hurricane Sandy. According to ABC News´s Chris Good, Romney held a number of conference calls with top donors Wednesday. During one of them, Romney said he had gotten a call from Clinton this past Monday. “I spoke with president Clinton the day before yesterday, he called and spent thirty minutes chatting with me," Good reported Romney saying. "He said a week out I thought you were going to win.

Former CIA Director David Petraeus wanted GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney to keep him on if the Republican beat President Obama in last Tuesday´s national election, according to Romney associates. (Snip) Campaign associates told Secrets that they were pushing for a Cabinet with no ties to Obama and intelligence officials suggested that the campaign was concerned that Petraeus had politicized the agency in the Benghazi, Libya attack and had let the president take too much credit for the killing of Osama bin Laden, the 9/11 attack mastermind.

Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.) has been elected to head the conservative Republican Study Committee (RSC) in the 113th Congress. Scalise beat out Rep. Tom Graves (R-Ga.) in a rebuke to the committee’s founding members, who had unanimously recommended Graves for the post. Scalise, who just won reelection to his third term in the House, replaces Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), who led the group the last two years. The vote tally of the more than 160 RSC members was not released, but Jordan told The Hill that it was “within a few votes.”

New Jersey’s job growth is basically flat for the year following Thursday’s release of October figures that show the state lost 11,700 jobs, the biggest one-month decline since June 2009. And the prospects for November are no better, with more losses expected as the result of superstorm Sandy. The state lost 9,400 private sector and 2,300 government jobs in October, based on a survey completed before the storm, bringing the total employment gain this year to 17,600, the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development reported.(Snip) Thursday’s report also revised downward the employment figure for September,

Former Dick Clark Productions Chief Executive Mark Shapiro has emerged as a candidate for the top job at the cable news channel CNN, according to people familiar with the matter. Shapiro, who prior to running Dick Clark Productions was a top programming executive at ESPN, would be an unusual choice for the CNN job, given that he does not have a traditional hard news background. However, Shapiro has strong production chops from his days at ESPN, which has its own large news division. He is seen as an innovative executive unafraid to take chances.

Rep. Jim Matheson (D-Utah) "won´t be voting" for House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) to remain in her position. "I think it is time to shake things up within the Democratic Caucus. I think we should look for some new leadership," Matheson told the Salt Lake Tribune. "I won´t be voting for Nancy Pelosi." The centrist Democrat represents the most Republican Democrat-held district in the country, and is fresh off surviving a tough challenge after redistricting, winning with 49 percent of the vote.

The Republican Party of Florida is backing Rep. Allen West’s call for a recount of all early votes in St. Lucie County, saying it would be “unconscionable” not to answer lingering questions about the results — which show Mr. West trailing Democratic challenger Patrick Murphy. “The supervisor of elections owes it to the people that elected her to count all of their votes that were cast early in the 2012 election cycle,” party Chairman Lenny Curry said in a statement Thursday. “She has already admitted there was a problem with the counting process and announced she would count all the

Morgantown, W.Va. - Bankrupt Patriot Coal Corp. agreed Thursday to become the first U.S. coal operator to phase out and eventually stop all large-scale mountaintop removal mining in central Appalachia under an agreement reached with three environmental groups that sued over pollution from several West Virginia operations. St. Louis-based Patriot said the proposed agreement allows it to postpone as much as $27 million in expenses into 2014 and beyond, improving its liquidity and the likelihood it can successfully emerge from Chapter 11 protection as a viable business.

Planned Parenthood, whose federal funding was threatened by GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney, is taking credit for President Obama´s reelection by keeping independent women scared long enough about Romney´s agenda for Obama to win them over. Dawn Laguens, executive vice president of Planned Parenthood, on Wednesday said that the women´s health group, starting in June, focused on keeping the minds of independent women open to voting for Obama by warning how Romney would rob them of birth control and abortion. That, she said, gave the president enough time to convince women that the economy was getting better

Hidden by the much bigger headline warnings about Obamacare´s impact, military retirees who have their own health care system are facing radical changes and cost hikes due to Pentagon budget cuts. In one of the most buzzed- and tweeted-about issues this week, the Pentagon is looking to dump 171,000 retirees out of the popular TRICARE Prime managed care program and into TRICARE Standard, the fee-for-service insurance option. The result could be significantly higher costs. A story on military.com revealed the military´s planning, explaining that retirees who live beyond 40-miles of a military base of medical facility will be hit.

Is there a limit to the number of times the news media will act as willing accomplices for Palestinian propaganda? Apparently not. The BBC, which has been an enemy of Israel for years, even going so far as to quote as an authority noted Israel hater Richard Falk, who has compared Israelis to Nazis, has now been caught cutting a video showing a “victim” of the Israeli attack on Gaza being carried out, seriously wounded. One problem. In the same video thirty seconds later, the same man is standing on his own two feet. It’s a miracle! The BBC’s hostility to Israel has been evidenced by acts like these:

Reports of al Qaeda´s death are greatly exaggerated, and the tragic events in Benghazi, Libya, and elsewhere make clear that al Qaeda and its affiliates remain a clear danger to the United States. The jihadists are taking full advantage of a permissive operating environment across the Middle East and North Africa to regroup, strengthen and plot new attacks against our homeland and American interests abroad.

Israel has been under the most profound siege since the fall of 2000; some would say, since the day after it won the 1967 war of self-defense; others would insist that the siege began the moment the sovereign Jewish state came into being in 1948. They are all right. Hamas rockets have been launched against Israel for years now—only the world refused to see or hear them or to understand what this meant in human and civilian terms. Jewish children, (adults too), have been traumatized by the siren which tells their parents and teachers that they have 30 seconds to reach a shelter; they have been traumatized

The group´s information comes from sworn court documents acquired during the course of its Freedom of Information Act lawsuit regarding the ties between "Zero Dark Thirty" and the current administration.

Oneida County District Attorney Scott McNamara said he was dismissing the charges against both students.

While Sen.

Due to what his office called a "scheduling error," McCain accompanied Sens. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., and Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H., at 11:30 a.m., Wednesday to demand before reporters a select committee of Congress to investigate the violence in Libya, rather than attend the scheduled 11 a.m. closed-door briefing for members

No one is calling him Maurice, but Deon Stewart proclaimed himself a gangster of love Wednesday and admitted to a string of Omaha robberies. In a rambling jailhouse press conference, the 21-year-old Stewart said he committed 14 robberies in four days so he could get his share of the “silver and gold” that he feels is his due. Stewart said he was surprised by how easily clerks gave up the money when he flashed his silver pistol, and even says some of them might have wanted him to have the cash. “One night, I just went into every store that I could to get my silver and gold,” Stewart said.
