The Democrats’ Identity Meltdown
Wall Street Journal, by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 2/11/2019 8:20:20 AM

Democrats need an identity-politics intervention. Having unleashed race, gender, sexual orientation and class as the defining issues of American politics, these furies are now consuming their authors. Where’s Barack Obama when Democrats need him? Every national Democrat of note is demanding that Virginia Governor Ralph Northam resign for appearing in blackface in 1984 and for offering different explanations for an offensive photo on his medical college yearbook page. But Mr. Northam is refusing to go. A second woman has now accused Virginia Lt. Governor Justin Fairfax of rape, this time at Duke University in 2000.

I don´t know who wrote this editorial. It doesn´t read as if Kim Strassel or Jason Williams is the author. I suspect Dan Henninger.

Nevertheless, the closing paragraph added to the alarms that have been going off in my head recently.

Michelle Obama made a "surprise" appearance at the Grammys. Barack Obama has written op-eds and popped up at various highly publicized events. The former president has mused about missing the perks of being the leader of the free world and the couple is making really obvious and embarrassing efforts to grab any available mike or spotlight.

If Barack Obama is needed to save the Democrats from themselves, what is a more logical possibility than doing so by offering himself for the nomination?

Get ready, friends. A storm is coming.

This is hilarious. "SAVE US BO!!" they beg.

BO was a master manipulator of race politics and class division. He twisted all the race confrontations early and often. When they were proven fake, he just moved on to the next. BO´s political agenda was punishing the wealthy for high earnings. It was the only "fair" thing to do, even though he admitted it wouldn´t be effective. He reveled in the politics of envy.

The editorial seeks a return to the dem party of old where they could put on Moderate Face for elections and tamp down their Left wing, using them as appropriate for fanatic crowds for media shows but otherwise pretending they weren´t quite that extreme.

BO destroyed the moderate dem party. BOCare caused them to be tossed out. Meanwhile, BO was stoking the fires of the hard Left. BO wanted the rise of the Left, while pretending to be Centrist, until he faced no more elections.

The dems put the pot on the stove on high and now it is boiling over. As like their policies, they were heedless of the foolishness and danger of their actions. THEY are being boiled alive and they don´t much like it. They protest that the heat, that they themselves created, is too high.

Best of all, they want BO, who NEVER showed concern for his party and is the king of "I", to charge forth in a selfless mission to rescue them from what he helped create.

BO will wait until the dust settles and only a few dem candidates are viable. He will offer his "help" for a cost. He will then launch a self-aggrandizing tour that might mention the candidate a couple times.

Dems created and fed the monster that is devouring them. Their fate is well deserved.

Fairfax must think the FBI works for him and should be his private detective and lawyer. The FBI must have better things to do than try to prove Fairfax´s case.

I agree that the writer is baiting Obama, #4, but I am positive Barack Obama would be easily elected if he proves me right about wanting to be president again. Don´t forget how popular he remains and how many morons are able to vote.

(Snip)Mr. Sanders has already had to apologize to women who worked for his campaign in 2016 and say they were harassed by male staffers.

Don Newcombe, the pitching ace of the

He was “Big Newk” in every way. Don Newcombe, who died Tuesday at age 92, was the biggest guy on the field, as the 6-4, 225-pound pitching ace of the 1950’s “Boys of Summer” Dodgers in Brooklyn, who became the first of only two players in baseball history to win Rookie of the Year, Most Valuable Player and Cy Young Award honors – and was likewise a big man off it, as a pioneer in breaking down racial barriers in baseball and later as the game’s foremost spokesman on alcohol and drug abuse. During his 1949-56 prime with the Dodgers,

Rod Rosenstein Has Some
Serious Explaining to Do
Bloomberg Opinion, by Eli Lake    Original Article

For the last two years, millions of Americans have come to view Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein as a kind of national insurance policy. This assessment is now in need of revision. Rosenstein is the guy who appointed Special Counsel Robert Mueller to investigate whether Russia tried to interfere in the 2016 election a week after President Donald Trump fired FBI Director James Comey. As the president rages on Twitter, Rosenstein is seen as the avatar of what one anonymous administration called the “steady state” — the resistance to Trump from within.

El Paso’s Tigua Native American tribe suffered another major defeat this week in their quarter-century battle with Texas over casino-style gaming when a federal judge ruled that their bingo and machine games violated state law. U.S. District Judge Philip Martinez of El Paso issued a summary judgment on Thursday in favor of the state, which has gone to court multiple times over the past two decades in attempts to close the tribe’s popular Speaking Rock Casino. Martinez’s ruling relied heavily on past court decisions, including one

MILWAUKEE — Gregory Greiten was 17 years old when the priests organized the game. It was 1982 and he was on a retreat with his classmates from St. Lawrence, a Roman Catholic seminary for teenage boys training to become priests. Leaders asked each boy to rank which he would rather be: burned over 90 percent of his body, paraplegic, or gay. Each chose to be scorched or paralyzed. Not one uttered the word “gay.” They called the game the Game of Life. The lesson stuck. Seven years later, he climbed up into his seminary

Convicted ex-congressman Anthony Weiner has been sprung from prison — and is now part of a federal re-entry program in New York, records show. Weiner has been transferred from Federal Medical Center in Devens, Mass. where he served a bulk of his 21-month sentence for sexting a 15-year-old girl from North Carolina, according to Federal Bureau of Prisons records. The 54-year-old is now being supervised by the federal Residential Reentry Management, which has a field office in Sunset Park and operates multiples facilities, the records say.

Every Oscar Best Picture Winner, Ranked

Posted By: StormCnter- 2/16/2019 12:34:33     Post Reply
Every year starting in late August and ending sometime around late February, Hollywood is consumed with winning an eight-and-a-half-pound gold trophy. Even in a world overrun with awards shows, the Oscars remain the grandest prize, and a Best Picture victory cements filmmakers and actors’ place in history. It also means that, for the rest of time, a lot of people will complain that your movie wasn’t that great and should have lost to some other movie they felt was eminently more deserving. It’s very easy to second-guess the Academy on its Best Picture picks, but while putting together

"This place is more than half of my life," says Gennady Laptev. The broad-shouldered Ukrainian scientist is smiling wistfully as we stand on the now dry ground of what was Chernobyl nuclear power plant´s cooling pond. "I was only 25 when I started my work here as a liquidator. Now, I´m almost 60." There were thousands of liquidators - workers who came here as part of the mammoth, dangerous clean-up operation following the 1986 explosion. The worst nuclear accident in history. Gennady shows me a coffee table-sized platform, installed here to collect dust.

$1,973 LEDs and the Green New Deal
Wall Street Journal, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 2/16/2019 7:53:36     Post Reply
The Green New Deal that Democrats unveiled last week has a grand ambition to eliminate fossil fuels in 10 years, retrofit every building in America, and guarantee high-paying jobs in the bargain. If you want to see how that works in the real world, consider the public housing projects near Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s New York office. The New York City Housing Authority (Nycha) has a more modest goal of a 30% reduction in greenhouse-gas emissions by 2027. As part of its plan, Nycha is switching to LED lighting,which lasts longer than incandescent bulbs and consumes less energy.

It’s fitting that William Barr’s confirmation as attorney general happened just as two powerful law-enforcement figures were trading accusations involving President Trump. Mr. Barr’s greatest challenge isn’t antitrust deals, immigration policy or even handling special counsel Robert Mueller. His overriding challenge is to reboot a Justice Department that has shredded its reputation and lost the confidence of Congress and the public. It’s hard to feel confident in law enforcement when a former deputy director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Andrew McCabe, reveals

VATICAN CITY—Cardinal Sean O’Malley of Boston, chief adviser to Pope Francis on protecting children from sexual abuse, called a meeting with top papal aides in 2017, concerned the Vatican wasn’t living up to its promise of “zero tolerance.” An appeals panel set up by the pope had reduced the punishments of a number of Catholic priests found guilty of abusing minors. In some cases, the panel canceled their dismissal from the priesthood and gave them short suspensions instead. “If this gets out, it will cause a scandal,” Cardinal O’Malley told Cardinal Secretary of State Pietro Parolin,

It is clear that the United States government, far more than the Russian one, interfered in the 2016 campaign. Figures throughout the Obama administration were using their power to investigate Hillary Clinton’s opponent and leaking that information to pols like Harry Reid and sympathetic members of the press to hurt Trump. Many of those figures — from John Brennan to James Comey to Susan Rice — appear on television these days displaying the very anti-Trump bias that drove their official actions during the campaign. We’re told gravely that the Mueller and Congressional investigations aim to protect the people’s democracy

To prove that there´s a border emergency, President Trump must stop eating omelets! Ridiculous, you might say. And yet, on this morning´s New Day, CNN´s John Avlon, Alisyn Camerota and Jeff Toobin mocked President Trump for eating an omelet, somehow suggesting it debunks the existence of an emergency. After displaying a photo of Trump at a Mar-a-Lago omelet bar, the trio engaged in this banter:JOHN AVLON: While ´emergency´ is not defined in this statute, the dictionary definition of emergency certainly doesn´t fit this. And this weekend, he´s at Mar-a-Lago at the omelet bar, also not exactly communicating urgency. CAMEROTA: Nothing

The U.S. Transportation Department announced Tuesday it would attempt to cancel $929 million in federal grant funds for California’s troubled high-speed rail project. The move marks an escalation in the war between President Trump and California in the days since Gov. Gavin Newsom announced a rethinking of the bullet train project after years of cost overruns. The Transportation Department also announced it was “actively exploring every legal option to seek the return from California of $2.5 billion in federal funds.” It’s unclear whether it has the legal authority to do so, and California would probably oppose such a move.In a

Clinton posted a message Monday appearing to take aim at President Donald Trump’s declaration of a national emergency at the U.S. southern border. She offered four alternative “real national emergencies.” The real national emergencies: – Relentless gun violence. – Children separated from their families at the border. – Climate change. – Americans dying for lack of health care.

A lot of Americans are justifiably angry that disgraced FBI official Andrew McCabe is doing a book tour rather than a stretch in some federal penitentiary. He has committed perjury on multiple occasions, participated in an attempt to alter the outcome of a national election, and colluded with other rogue bureaucrats to remove a duly elected president from power. But there is a bright and shiny silver lining to this dingy cloud of deep state skullduggery: Donald Trump still resides in the White House while Hillary Clinton stumbles around her Chappaqua mansion in a muumuu hugging a fifth of Glenfiddich.
