Knockout: Mitt Romney Crushes Barack
Obama in First Presidential Debate

P J Media, by Bryan Preston

Original Article

Posted By:ketchuplover, 10/4/2012 3:31:13 AM

The first presidential debate opened with a stark contrast: A blue tie on President Barack Obama and a red tie on Gov. Mitt Romney. (snip) By about the 15 minute mark, President Obama appeared to be annoyed. That came after an exchange in which Gov. Romney interrupted moderator Jim Lehrer to deconstruct a misleading Obama charge that Romney plans to raise taxes on the middle class and cut taxes on the rich. Gov. Romney consistently delivered piles of facts, combined with stories about American workers and businesses that put flesh on those facts. It was an extremely effective strategy, showing

Comments:
I watched it on CSpan. Before the debate began, Jim Lehrer repeatedly emphasized to the audience the importance of their silence. And so when the Entertainer in Chief made his sappy "Sweetie" comment and when he brought in Donald Trump, etc., he was met with silence. No doubt this had to have shook him up. He's used to being the adored, applauded, aggrandized one. Not tonight. Now the next Pres debate will be in a Townhall format. I suspect the Pres. will feel a little more in his league there.

At last Obama was put in a situation where he didn't have someone running cover and of course sans teleprompter. Mr. Smartest Man In The Room was upstaged x2. Makes me wonder who would be President today had Mr. Obama not had the advantage of a teleprompter during his 2004 Dem Con speech. Great orator, indeed. I'm stoked. Hopefully the Great Uninformed watched and knew what they were seeing.....

Best Obummer line of the night:

"...I had 5 seconds left before you cut me off.."

To the moderator. It was the only truthfull statement he made!!!

The Dims know Obama can't defend his record, but they, in fact, don't even want him to. They want him to lie. They want him to fool more and more people. For them, the only problem last night was that Obama lied with less energy and passion, risking an exposure of The Empty Chair.

As Sarah Palin pointed out, this will only increase the chances of foul play and dirty tricks from the DNC, the Oval Office, and the Court Eunuchs, all of whom are now nothing more than Chicago gangsters. Romney will have to deal with this election corruption on a far more serious level than debate points on a stage, I fear.

Lots of lefty criticism of Lehrer. Bull. He did what a good moderator should do. He let the candidates go at it, expand on their differences, challenge each other. He did try to stop the fireworks a few times to keep to his plan, but couldn't manage it. Good.

Be assured that in the next debate, the lib moderator will be much more aggressive to prevent Romney from getting on a roll. He has to be ready for that.

Mitt exposed Obama as the poser that he is and has been. People who haven't been really paying attention saw it last night.

Mitt's intelligence and confidence ran rings around this guy. I was stunned at Obama's total unpreparedness. Lazy, lazy, lazy.

It was an insult to his supporters just how little he cares about them that he couldn't take some time out to prepare for this debate. He has absolutely no work ethic. No wonder he can't run the country.

God answers prayers.

Mitt gave the best presidential debate performance since Reagan reducing Obama to looking like a smarmy, sarcastic, rude and unlikeable individual who sounded more like Kermit the Frog the longer the debate progressed.

Obama should not play poker. Each time Mitt hit him, you could read it on his face. Oh, to be a fly on the wall in the bastions of liberal land. I just bet there were a lot of wet pillow cases as they saw their demi god go down in flames.

On streamlining federal programs and funding,

''And, I'd stop funding PBS. Don't get me wrong. I love PBS. I love Big Bird. I love you, Jim, but I'm not borrowing from China to pay for it. I'd examine all federal programs with that guide in mind.''

I whooped!

Romney absolutely ROCKED IT last night! I loved how the DemocRat/Obama LIES were actually repeated - Obama is 'THAT SMART' (/s) - and each one REFUTED by Romney himself! Outstanding!

Obama likes to think of himself as a professor, schooling everybody on what he wants them to know, and how magnificent he is. Last night it was ROMNEY who schooled HIM on everything, and Obama looked smaller and smaller by debate end. He reminded me very much of a little kid put in a situation way beyond his years and experience, and he seemed to be thinking, 'How do I get out of this?'

Bwa!!!!!!!!!

It's pretty crazy for Obama to accuse Romney of wanting to raise taxes on the middle class,when Obamacare is the biggest tax increase in history that will hit the middle class between the eyes.It's ridiculous for the free lunch crowd to not even chip in a lousy 10 buck copay when accessing the system.

Obama didn't do himself any favors using John Kerry as his practice dummy debate opponent.He's probably as far removed as anybody on what a republican might say.

Obama had a mini teleprompter of some sort on that podium,even if it was a texting devise. Obama couldn't keep up with reading them while trying to respond to Romney.It's a lot harder for the brain to do 2 things at once than people think.

We got the lethargic, prickly Obama tonight. Perhaps fortified with a couple bottles of energy drink, we may well get the intenser gloves-off Obama next debate. Kind of the reverse of algore 2000, where algore was a roaming bully in the first debate, and after much resulting criticism, a sedated pansy in the second debate.

Obama is so brainwashed into his own falsehoods and lies that he's not able to understand rational explanations and basic facts. You had the feeling all he did was memorize his talking points. He not only sounded unprepared and inept, he also looked pathetically small. Last night the world saw the empty chair...the real Obama.

On the stump, Obama the propagandist peppers his speeches with his favorite devices: straw men, false choices, gross exaggerations and the Big Lie. I think one of the reasons for his flatness tonight is that he recognized immediately that any time he employed these devices Romney was going to swat them back at him twice as hard. For example, when Obama carped about the two billion dollar oil tax breaks, Romney hit back with Obama's 90 billion dollar green energy tax breaks and made it sting. A couple experiences like that and you'd get more tentative like Obama as well.

Last night the world finally met the empty chair. Not only did he sound unprepared and inept, but also, looked uncomfortable and pathetically small. It was quite astounding to see but no complaints from me. I am truly grateful for prayers being answered.

Honestly, I was amazed that he actually thought he could get away with spewing the campaign talking points over and over again, such as, Romney raising taxes on the middle class and think that the American people would buy this pap. He seemed not to understand basic facts about the economy and made some very inaccurate and stupid statements.
It will be interesting to see how the Dems spin it and how he does on the campaign trail.

I was really hoping for a good old fashioned narcissistic meltdown. Unfortunately, Obama mostly maintained his composure. But did anyone else notice about a 1/3 of the way in, Romney said something that Made Bambie's jaw get tight. I could clearly see a lump develop on the corner of his left jaw for a moment.

I can't stop dancing! Yes, I know there are two more debates, but I am going to enjoy every minute of today. I will keep praying for the Romney team. I am confident Mitt will continue with his excellent prep until they are all over. I am also very confident about Ryan's abilities after watching him take on Obama during the Obamacare debates.
OTOH I would hate to be on O's drone list. He is going to take his anger out on someone ( beside himself). It is not a good time to be on the drone list. Payback for the murders in Libya should not be used as a "wag the dog" moment by Obama, although I am sure it will be very tempting for him.

So many exciting articles posted here--this is awesome! Just watched John McCain on F&F (only watching because last night was so good) and he said we should not underestimate obama roaring back. That's because he got his butt spanked 4 years ago by an empty suit. JM should be ashamed to be on tv today but he's on F&F and will be on Greta tonight. He doesn't have sense enough to realize that he should be embarrassed to show his face and he thinks we don't remember his lame campaign. Romney just spanked the empty suit that beat JM with fluff and stuff. We don't celebrate our losers like the other side. Go away JM.

Chrissy Matthews was frankly devastated last night. It was as if the leg that once thrilled and tingled had developed gangrene. He and other dems were apoplectic that Obama hadn't hammered Romney on the 47% comment or on his tax returns. Personally, I think Valerie and other Bamster handlers feared that bringing up those matters might give Romney a perfect chance to explain away and turn the issues in his favor.

Hoards of dems are upset with Jim Lehrer's moderating. For a dyed-in-the-wool lefty like Lehrer, that's gotta hurt.

Liberals are liberals, they'll lie and say Obama did great and really touched their female parts

I wonder, though, how Kristol, Brooks, Scarborough and Noonan are going to spill Romney's blood over this one? Or will they take this as an opportunity to dodge any more questions about their loyalty and suddenly jump behind Romney proclaiming that this is the Romney they've been waiting for and that their criticism worked?

We didn't see any comments on the 47%, or Bain because after the first 10 minutes he knew there was nothing he could say that Romney wouldnt have a rebutal. And it would cost him the chance to keep using it in the ads.

One can see, just from the glare in Obama's eyes, when strafed on policy, he is a no compromise ideologue. Bipartisan isn't in his dictionary. How dare someone challenge his policy, his genius!

Bamster sure did change the subject a lot. Trying to throw Romney off his message maybe? No counter to the significant food stamp increase, said twice. Good job Mitt. What could bamster say in defense?

If it comes out for sure Obama was receiving text support, while Romney was not, his Zeppelin is going down in flames.

Whew! Massive relief on our side, obviously. Romney did a fine job. Romney showed that when the pressure is on, he can pull it off, admittedly a concern of mine. Obama was Obama, but when contrasted with Romney, his title as The Great Lightweight was ensured.

A little late in posting. Got indigestion from eating my words last night. A bit tough to swallow, but the aftertaste is oh, so sweet! The ambush didn't happen last night.

Mitt had his "A" game, and NerØbama tried to "phone it in", as Michelle Malkin aptly pointed out this morning. What a pleasant surprise!

Not only has my confidence in Mitt gone way up, but Rob Portman and his "team" also deserve mega-kudos. They obviously did a wonderful job in prepping Mitt for last night. Keep it up.

"It ain't over", however, so hopefully Mitt, Rob, and company will not back off. NerØbama has been "wounded", so expect a much more aggressive and engaged performance in the next debate. The left will be out for revenge. Remember that it's not about me, the pundits, or even Mitt or NerØbama - it's about the country and our children and grandchildren. We simply cannot afford to lose this election.

Gov. Romney did a sterling job last night. Ann Romney was right when she said this man will not fail. Last night Americans caught a glimpse of how a real president conducts himself which has been sorely lacking these past few years. It was so refreshing to watch someone put Obama on the hot seat regarding his failed economic policies.

I also agree with the posters who believe that Team Romney had better be prepared for trouble. The flying monkeys, aka MSM, will be doing the bidding of Axelrod and Jarrett by creating whatever scenario that will harm Gov. Romney. Heads up, we all know they will play dirty.

I don't have time to adequately tell you --here from behind enemy lines--how bad the LEFTIES ARE IMPLODING! They are beside themselves. Plus, best tweet of the night goes to Mark Hemingway-"This wasn't so much a debate as Romney just took Obama for a drive strapped to the hood of his car." I am so tickled I can't stand it...Finally, finally, for the first time in his life, as Clarice Feldman says, "...[Obama's] jive ass act isn't working....."

If only we had this 4 years ago instead of the Senate Gentleman John Mc Cain.

One thing I notice is that the leftys are all trying to say Romney bullied the moderator, yet I have heard that Obama actually spoke anywhere from 4-10 minutes LONGER than Romney in the debate. So if it wasn't to talk more, what exactly was Romney gaining by bullying Jim Lehrer?

I just took a look at Moveon.org to see what their take on the debate was. The best they can come up with is that Romney doesn't like Big Bird.

Near the end of the debate, obama gave the moderator the annoyed look of, "What's the matter with you? Pull 'em off of me." Lehrer was totally feckless in his attempts to control Romney.

Someone get Jeff Foxworthy on the phone. Obama has now qualified to appear on "Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader?".

For those hollywooD liberals that scoffed at Clint Eastwood's convention speech: he has been vindicated!

I would have loved to have seen Romney in action in the board room. I think he can work with the other side and not give away the farm. Unlike "reach across the aisle" McCain.

Agree with #44 about the losers zinger. I jumped out of my chair, scared the cats. As for Jim Lehrer, at one point after Romney spoke (I forget the exact topic) Lehrer looked to Obama and said - paraphrasing here - "you're for a more balanced approach". He was obviously trying to help Obama. Unfortunately he was beyond help. No teleprompter = nothingburger.

I think it was pure genius on the part of Romney to get Obama to embrace the term Obamacare. Barack's ego would not let him see that Obamacare is and has been a pejorative term for some time.

Re #60 -- Here's one story from behind enemy lines, namely Massachusetts. My wife has been mentioning for weeks that she keeps spotting on her morning commute this distracting red car carrying two bumper stickers, one touting Obama and the other for Lieawatha Warren. She knows she spotted the car with its stickers again as recently as two days ago.

About an hour ago, my wife called to let me know that as of this morning Lieawatha is still in place on the red car, but the Obama sticker has been removed – torn off more likely, with a corner remnant still visible.

A "sign" (make that, non-sign) of the times?

I usually don't say up this late as I have to get up way to early to go to my under paid job but boy I'm so happy I did. It was wouderbar!!!

I feel the Won was so confident that he is soooo good, he didn't even spend much time in practice. After all, whatever he says is the absolute truth. I love the way the LSM is spinning to make it sound like he did a fabulous job but the stats don't lie. The focus groups I saw didn't much care for his performance. Hope this wakes many up to the TRUTH that has been so sorely missing.

As an above poster predicted, the next moderator won't allow Romney to get a word in edgewise. He'll be cut off at every turn.

Hopefully he'll be prepared for that. Also, let's hope the folks watching see the blatant unfairness of it and get even more ticked off at the Democrats. We need people willing to crawl over broken glass to get get these parasites out of there.

#22 is on to something. Of course Obama has been schooled in Socialist/Marxist dogma and every lackey around him pats him on the back and tells him he is the greatest. Of course he isn't, he's just a second rate orator who gets along because of tele-prompters and an out of control liberal media.

I was discussing an upcoming municipal election once with a city official and basically it was the city against the residents. I told him they were elected to represent the voters, not to implement plans that citizens didn't approve of nor want. He gave me the usual city line and I told him that they needed to get out more and talk to voters. I told him they were starting to believe their own propaganda and they needed to take a step back and realize who they worked for.

In the election they lost big and lost control of the City Council. Served them right. They had lost touch and people responded.

The MSM will not give up. Their gloom over the first debate merely sets up their glee at Obama's big turnaround in the second debate -- the best comback ever!

Don't you know, the MSM is just getting started: Roll back expectations pre-debate; post-debate, say Obama was rusty and off-his-game. Come the second debate, they will be back to their leg tingling mantras.

Bambi just didn't expect Romney to actually challenge him on anything - no one else ever does! So he's not used to that and has no idea what to do. Also, he kept trying to bloviate and selfishly used up more time, but it still didn't matter. I was so proud of our next President, Mitt Romney. Finally we can feel proud again knowing that we'll have a grownup in the Whitehouse who shows up for work early and gets down to business.

I have been a Romney supporter since the 2008 primaries, and there is no doubt that, based on what I saw, he had the better performance by far. I need to preface this next remark by stating that I only watched about a half hour, after the fact, online - 3 subjects. Obama's performance was quite good, not nearly as good as Romney's, but as strong as it could possibly be, given his performance as President.

Okay, prayed all day yesterday for Mitt to speak truth to lies. I also prayed that Obama's true character would show through, not his ability to act. God answered both of these prayers last night.

But, friends, this is not over by a long shot. We must not be prideful or arrogant, like the other side has been. Elections can turn on one story, true or not; remember the DUI and Rather stories for GWB. Romney is, without a doubt, the stronger and more experienced (than Obama, even after four years with his feet up on the Oval Office desk). But, folks, there's still a month to go fighting the ugliest and meanest of Chicago politics when it's on the ropes. Beware of cockiness!

WHAT a relief!!! I have to admit that, like Pat Caudell, I was getting very worried, as Romney's campaign was horrewndous in putting out quick ads denouncing Obama statements that were lies, wrong, etc. I now have every faith that Romney (and Ryan) will continue to speak like competent grown ups re: how they can turn this ship around. He bet the farm on the debates and it has paid off.
This a.m. I watched "Morning Joe" and was thrilled to hear the complaint that R. was just a good showman (!), that he wasn't specific (while Obama has said NOTHING specific--that makes sense anyhow), that he shades the truth (!!!!!!!!) and that Obama's biggest problem is that he has lived in a cocoon for four years with nobody to contradict him---this from the likes of Heileman and John Meachem, who have done nothing but genuflect, shade the truth, obfuscate in Obama's aid for 5 years! The Press has bloodied itself to a point from which it can't come back! They are not trusted, not believed, by anyone with half a brain. I hope THEY get that.

It can't be emphasized too strongly that pResident Polly Parrot wasn't the only categorical loser last night. What about PPP's practice debate stand in for Romney: the equine-faced, faux stentorian-voiced traitor JF'nK, who is the Ted Baxter of the Democrats (minus the humor)?

Afterwards I flipped over to MSNBC and was greeted by a shellshocked Chris "Tweety" Matthews who looked like he'd been woken up at 4AM from a dead sleep with a hard whack on the head. The results of this debate were unspinnable, and the incumbent was revealed as an incompetent and a serial liar. The election isn't over yet, but Romney turned the corner and is on the path to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Well done, Mitt!

My guess is Obama will call in sick minutes before the next debate and Romney will have to debate a real empty chair, or podium if you will. Or perhaps some empty shoes sitting on top of a historic desk with a rumpled suit hanging in the background.

Mickey Rooney, Legendary Actor,
Dies at 93
Variety, by Carmel Dagan    Original Article
Posted By: ketchuplover- 4/6/2014 11:52:45 PM     Post Reply
Mickey Rooney, the pint-sized actor who was one of MGM’s giant box office attractions in the late ’30s and early ’40s, died on Sunday. He was 93. As adept at comedy as drama and an excellent singer and dancer, Rooney was regarded as the consummate entertainer. During a prolific career on stage and screen that spanned eight decades (“I’ve been working all my life, but it seems longer,” he once said), he was nominated for four Academy Awards and received two special Oscars, the Juvenile Award in 1939 (shared with Deanna Durbin) and one in 1983 for his body of work.

Last week, news broke that a congressional candidate in Gainesville had a secret pastime: impersonating vampires. And superheroes. Some people would call this nutty. In Florida, we just call it Tuesday. Seriously, that´s not even our highest-profile vampire story. Remember the "vampire killings" from Lake County? Some of our stories are heartbreakingly tragic. But so many are also mind-numbingly strange. In Florida, we do weird the way Kansas does wheat. Here, giant pet snakes escape. And breed. And then invade our national parks. We have fish that eat people, alligators that eat people and people who eat people.

One of the latest tools targeting the growing problem of texting while driving didn´t come out of Apple, Google or Microsoft. It was the brainchild of two Orlando-area entrepreneurs who recently launched a new mobile app called Txt Shield. The idea behind Txt Shield, which runs on Android phones, is to short-circuit any texting capability when people are cruising down the highway, according to brothers Philip and Geoffrey Stiles, co-founders and partners in Txt Shield LLC. Parents can install it on their teens´ phones; employers can put it on company-issued phones; and individuals can download it to help resist the urge to

President Obama’s Department of Homeland Security caught then released 68,000 aliens who had previously been convicted of a crime, a new report from the Center for Immigration Studies shows. The report, provided to Breitbart News ahead of its late Sunday evening release, reviews internal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) metrics to conclude that the Obama administration released 35 percent—or 68,000—convicted criminal aliens back into the U.S. general population when they could have been deported.

San Jose, Calif. — A usually busy DMV office in San Jose was closed Friday after a motorist waiting to take a driver´s test crashed her car into the building and caused a gas leak. The driver declined to give her name but told KTVU she was nervous about taking the driver´s license tests because this would have been her third try. Around noon the line started to move but she said she hit the accelerator instead of the brake and rammed a motorcycle rider in front of her.

Obama on undocumented Irish:
Our immigration system is broken
Irish Examiner, by Staff    Original Article

President Obama says the thousands of Irish immigrants in the US are being denied opportunities because of the US strict immigration laws. The President was speaking the traditional Shamrock ceremony at the White House as part of the St Patrick´s Day celebrations. The issue of immigration reform was a priority for the Irish Government delegation, led by Enda Kenny. The delegation has been lobbying in Washington during the St Patrick´s Day trip for reforms to benefit the 50,000 undocumented Irish there. President Obama said too many undocumented Irish were denied the chance to contribute to society as they were not able to pay taxes

On Fox News last night, Bill O’Reilly struggled with a question he apparently finds confusing: why aren’t major news organizations covering the IRS “scandal” to his satisfaction. Lois Lerner, the former head of the IRS’ tax exempt division, took the Fifth last week, but most of the media seemed indifferent. (Snip) That’s one possible explanation. But in the interest of giving O’Reilly and Goldberg something else to consider, there’s a more plausible, reality-based reason the media has lost interest in this scandal: there is no scandal. As we’ve discussed on more than a few occasions, the story has already been

The past two days have revealed the dangerous ramifications of the narrow-minded foreign policy elite in Washington, and a media establishment that has for so much of President Obama’s tenure accepted the statements of the administration as gospel. (Snip) If this is the sort of foreign policy anticipation that the establishment delivers, it’s little surprise that no one trusts America’s self-styled policy elites any more. They are too used to judging the world according to the patterns toward which they are already biased, as opposed to seeing it as it is.

In little more than a year, one small boy has raised more than three-quarters of a million dollars to help his sick best friend by selling copies of a book he wrote himself. Now well on his way to the ambitious goal of $1 million, Dylan Siegal, a seven-year-old from Los Angeles, is selling his book ´Chocolate Bar´ to raise funds for Jonah Pournazarian, eight, his best friend who suffers from a rare condition called glycogen storage disease type 1B. Dylan became concerned about Jonah when he found out researchers were almost out of funding to conduct studies into the

President Obama has made liberal use of "executive action" throughout his presidency, and pledged to make even more use of executive action in this year´s State of the Union speech. He seems to think that because Republicans don´t want to implement his agenda, he can go around Congress. The Heritage Foundation is out with a new report on President Obama´s executive actions, titled "An Executive Unbound," finding that "abusive, unlawful, even potentially unconstitutional unilateral action has been a hallmark of the Obama Administration." They´ve also compiled a list of the top ten abusive executive actions taken by the President.

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., has accused the panel´s top Democrat of prompting the Internal Revenue Service in 2012 to target a conservative organization applying for nonprofit status. Issa said records obtained last week from the IRS show communications from the office of ranking member Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., about True the Vote, a Texas-based, nonprofit conservative group that aims to prevent voter fraud. The communications at one point involved Lois Lerner, the ex-IRS official who Issa´s panel is poised to hold in contempt of Congress on Thursday for refusing to provide testimony about her

Attorney General Eric Holder strayed from prepared remarks to slam the way he was “treated” by a House committee the day before, calling it evidence of “ugly and divisive” civil rights challenges facing him and President Barack Obama. Speaking to the Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network at its annual convention in New York on Wednesday, Holder talked about the state of civil rights today and brought up a House committee hearing Tuesday that grew contentious, according to video from Mediaite and reports from outlets including Capital New York. “The last five years have been defined by significant strides and

Barack Obama got quite the handful on Thursday, April 10, but it was all for a good cause! As the President of the United States was boarding Air Force One with his wife Michelle Obama, a gust of wind blew up her skirt. Barack quickly stepped in and grabbed the First Lady´s billowing skirt to help her avoid a wardrobe malfunction and embarrassing Marilyn Monroe moment. Earlier in the week, another famous lady on the global stage suffered a similar snafu, but no one was around to help her -- not even her prince!

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or

Although the news media and Hollywood relish telling stories about horrific crimes and serial killers, they are strangely silent about Dr. Kermit Gosnell, an abortionist who killed living, viable babies by snipping their spinal cords with scissors, and who is “America’s most prolific serial killer,” said actor Kevin Sorbo and his wife Sam Jenkins in a video to promote funding for a movie about Gosnell. “Kermit Gosnell is America’s most prolific serial killer,” says Kevin Sorbo, who starred in the TV series Hercules: The Legendary Journeys. “For more than three decades he was an abortion doctor in Philadelphia, where he

Eric Holder ventured off script in a speech Wednesday to the National Action Network, the organization led by MSNBC host and recently-exposed FBI informant Al Sharpton. “I’m pleased to note that the last five years have been defined by significant strides and by lasting reforms,” said Holder at the conference of black activists, before improvising “even in the face, even in the face, of unprecedented, unwarranted, ugly, and divisive adversity.” “If you don’t believe that, if you look at the way, forget about me, forget about me, if you look at the way the attorney general of the United States was treated

Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) could face up to five years in federal prison for obstructing a Congressional proceeding. On Wednesday, Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) and five Subcommittee Chairmen on the committee sent a letter to Ranking Member Cummings demanding an explanation for his staff’s queries from the IRS, why the Minority hid these efforts from the Majority, and why the Ranking Member denied such actions by his staff at a February Subcommittee hearing: “Although you have previously denied that your staff made inquiries to the IRS about conservative organization True the Vote that may have led to additional

Big Government: As students flood Twitter with images of inedible slop, it´s clear that Michelle Obama´s government school lunch revamp is a costly failure. It´s time to get the feds out of kids´ lunch boxes. The $12 billion federal student lunch program, which serves 30.7 million kids, is losing participants fast — more than a million just last year, according to a recent Government Accountability Office report. The reason: the first lady´s Healthy Hunger-free Kids Act, an act that has accomplished exactly the opposite of what it claimed it would — leaving hungry, angry, disgusted kids and dumpsters full of wasted

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle. Michael Parker and Flora Chang, at Sanford Bernstein, say we entering a new order of "global energy deflation" that must ineluctably erode the viability of oil, gas and the fossil fuel nexus over time.

On Wednesday, the House Ways and Means Committee voted to refer former Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner to the Department of Justice for criminal prosecution. By a vote of 23 to 14, a closed-door session of the House committee determined that Lerner’s role in the alleged singling out of conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status for undue scrutiny was a criminal act. The vote was “just another attempt by Republicans to vilify Ms. Lerner for political gain,” according to the ex-IRS official’s attorney, William Taylor. In spite of the fact that the DOJ has already been investigating both Lerner and the alleged
