Obama meets with Cambodia´s
longtime ´strongman´

Associated Press, by Grant Peck

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 11/19/2012 12:46:35 PM

PHNOM PENH, Cambodia- President Barack Obama arrived in Cambodia on Monday having just won four more years in office, but that is nothing compared to his host, Hun Sen. The 60-year-old Cambodian prime minister has held power since Ronald Reagan was in the White House, and says he´s not stepping down until he is 90. Hun Sen is known as one of Asia´s most Machiavellian politicians, with a knack for making sure his rivals end up in jail or in exile. A laudatory biography is subtitled "Strongman of Cambodia," and some would say that´s putting it mildly.

Obama is not there to sell democracy. He is there to learn how a "strongman" gets things done.

It´s funny how he rushes off to visit two countries with oppressive, corrupt governments right after our election. Connect the dots?

Did Obama take Springsteen and Bon Jovi with him to serenade President Strongman? You would think they`d want to know what Obama is doing to their Constitution.

On Sunday, La Santa Cecilia, a so-called "crossover" rock band whose accordion player is an illegal immigrant, won a Grammy for their Treinta Dias album in the “Best Latin Rock, Urban or Alternative Album” category. Jose “Pepe” Carlos, the accordion player, is a "DREAMer." He was brought to the United States when he was six by his parents when they came into the country illegally. The group formed in 2005 by lead singer Marisol Hernandez and Miguel Ramirez to "blend ethnicities and identities uniquely forged in multicultural Los Angeles," and has used pop culture to push for comprehensive immigration reform,

"It´s nothing personal," said Milton Wolf, President Obama´s second cousin, once removed. But Obama´s actions, he added, "are destroying America." And you thought your family had problems. Wolf is a tea party-aligned conservative running for the U.S. Senate in Kansas, where Obama´s mother was born and where Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.) is trying to win a fourth term. In an interview Monday with Post Politics, he recalled meeting the president for the first time in 2010 at an event in Kansas City.

President Obama is expected to enlist the aid of major U.S. corporations in fighting long-term joblessness in an announcement in his State of the Union address Tuesday evening. Xerox, Lockheed Martin and Procter & Gamble confirmed that they are among large companies participating in a White House pledge to not discriminate against the long-term unemployed when hiring. The wall street journal reported the pledge Monday morning. It commits corporations to boosting the long-term unemployed by ensuring that they are not unfairly treated in companies´ advertising or hiring decisions and improving their efforts to hire those out of work for long

Two survivors of the Boston Marathon bombing and an openly gay NBA player are among the guests who will sit with first lady Michelle Obama Tuesday when President Barack Obama delivers the annual State of the Union address. The first lady´s guests are often picked because they symbolize an issue or policy the president is promoting. The White House announced six guests on Monday, with other names to be released ahead of Obama´s address. The guests announced so far are:- Carlos Arredondo and Jeff Bauman, Boston: A photograph of Arredondo, 53, and Bauman, 27, has become one of the iconic

If you want to know why the left is wrong about income inequality, you need to watch this Margaret Thatcher video. In just a few minutes, the “Iron Lady” explains how some – perhaps most – statists would be willing to reduce income for the poor if they could impose even greater damage on the rich. This picture is another way of getting across the same point. It was sent to me by Richard Rahn (famous for the Rahn Curve), and it uses two pizzas to show how leftist policies would “solve” inequality. (Photo) I like this analogy, and not

A day after he delivers his State of the Union address, President Obama will head to a Costco store in suburban Maryland to speak about the economy, the White House announced Monday. The president’s remarks, which are open to the media but closed to the public, will come at Costco’s Lanham store at about 10:30 a.m. Wednesday. The administration announced no other details about the speech, but it’s possible the president will use the event to push for greater federal investment into infrastructure, research and other areas. Mr. Obama is also likely to again address the growing issue of income

Washington– President Barack Obama´s poll numbers are near the lowest of his presidency as he prepares to deliver his State of the Union address on Tuesday. According to a CNN Poll of Polls compiled on Monday which averages the most recent non-partisan, live operator national surveys, Obama´s approval rating stood at 44%, with 51% of Americans giving a thumbs down to Obama´s performance in the White House. That´s marginally better than two months ago when they ran at or near all-time lows for Obama. But it´s still far below where it stood a year ago, at his second inaugural, when

Closed courtrooms. No laptops, phones or Wi-Fi. Bathrooms closed off by marshals. The corruption trial of former New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin cranks up Monday with a federal judge imposing tough rules on spectators and reporters during jury selection. In an order issued last week, U.S. District Judge Helen Berrigan imposed those restrictions because of concerns that courtroom rules "may not be respected" by some unnamed miscreants. Nagin´s pleas for federal help for his flooded city caught the nation´s attention in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Now out of office, he´s pleaded not guilty to federal charges of

The Sunday political shows are never at their worst than when they’re in advance of an event. Messieurs Gregory, Stephanopoulos, et al can postmortem the hell out of a debate or a gaffe or press conference or even a perennial event like the end of December. (So many chances for retrospection!) But previewing something like the State of the Union appears to give everybody gas. Thus the Sunday shows all spent far too much time yesterday pitching the question, “The state of the union is ______.” The responses were about as enlightening as you’d expect, and a couple of folks

When President Obama steps to the podium in front of the Speaker’s chair Tuesday night, the speech he delivers will contain the most liberal promises and activist rhetoric of his presidency, progressives hope and Republicans worry. Liberals say both good policy and electoral logic dictate a sharp move left. They do not want to hear him seeking compromise ahead of midterm elections that are likely to be decided on turnout. November will hinge on which side best fires up its base. So progressives want Obama to beat the base drum. There is no louder stage than the State of the

Former Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron, who is preparing for the NFL Draft, was watching the Grammys on Sunday and felt that the "really demonic" performances showed that "there is a lot of evil in the world." At the Grammys, Katy Perry dressed up as a witch and was "burned at the stake" in her act while gay couples were married to the song "same love." Though it was unclear what performance prompted the tweet, McCarron later re-tweeted a response in which one of his followers wrote, "I know right? I can only imagine what Katy´s Preacher Father is thinking."

Marijuana makes you stupid. Nobody wants to acknowledge the obvious fact, but that’s what this whole legalization debate is all about. That’s why most of the candidates for governor, of both parties, have come out against legalization, even if they have to obfuscate why they’re opposed to the Colorado-ization of Massachusetts.

The GOP is poised to win back a majority in the Senate and keep its advantage in the House in Congressional elections this fall, Graham said. [Snip] Graham, who is up for re-election, is facing GOP primary challengers state Sen.

Stephen Hawking has produced a "mind-bending" new theory that argues black holes do not actually exist - at least not in the way we currently perceive them. Instead, in his paper, Information Preservation and Weather Forecasting for Black Holes, Hawking proposes that black holes can exist without 'event horizons', the invisible cover believed to surround every black hole.During a previous lecture, 'Into the Black Hole', Hawkins described an event horizon as the boundary of a black hole, "where gravity is just strong enough to drag light back, and prevent it escaping".
“Falling through the event horizon, is a bit like going over Niagara Falls in a canoe", he said. "If you are above the falls, you can get away if you paddle fast enough, but once you are over the edge, you are lost. There's no way back.

Amazon Prime is like crack, people warn me in hushed, cautionary tones. Once you try it, you’re hooked. I personally have not signed up for Amazon’s premiere, super-duper, fancy-dancy, wave-o’-the-future membership program, even though I’m a frequent customer. But I’m fascinated by the transformation people talk about once they do. “Oh, you’ll see,” they tell me, “you’ll see.” On its face, Prime offers two simple things: Free two-day shipping on most purchases, and access to streaming movies and TV shows. All for $80 a year. Whether or not people need two-day shipping, a few things seem to happen once they

Last week the Wall Street Journal published Gregory Hicks’s column “Benghazi and the smearing of Chris Stevens.” It would be easy to overlook Hicks’s column in the crush of last week’s news, but it is deserving of special attention. In the column Hicks offers his eyewitness testimony to the security issues that Stevens dealt with at our Libyan facilities before his death. The redacted report of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence Committee that was released on January 15 has left some to draw the conclusion that Stevens rejected additional security and to imply that he is responsible for the success

Representative Steve Stockman (R-TX), who has been nowhere to be seen for almost three weeks, may have just turned up in London after a trip to Russia, according to Breitbart. Stockman, who submitted a last-minute longshot primary challenge to Senator John Cornyn (R-TX), has missed fifteen roll call votes since January 9, and has held nary a campaign event, despite drastically trailing Cornyn in the polls for an election in early March. Reporters trying to track Stockman down have been met with unresponsive campaign and congressional offices, though he appeared to have been located last week in Cairo, Egypt.

The honeymoon is over for Wendy Davis. The Texas Democratic gubernatorial candidate this week sustained the most negative coverage she’s faced since shooting to political stardom last summer. And her campaign, still smarting from the scrutiny, is determined to change the subject by turning up the heat on her opponent, GOP Attorney General Greg Abbott, over education. In the high-profile, astronomically expensive Texas gubernatorial race, Davis was riding high just over a week ago. While she has always faced an uphill battle, she had just raked in stellar fundraising numbers and scored yet another national television interview that showcased her compelling journey

The number of people enrolled in private health insurance under Obamacare has soared by more than one-third in recent weeks to around 3 million, according to government data released on Friday. Marilyn Tavenner, administrator of the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), announced the preliminary tally in a blog posting. She forecast that enrollment through new federal and state health insurance marketplaces would continue to grow in coming weeks as a public outreach campaign accelerates. The new data adds to evidence that President Barack Obama´s administration has turned the corner on enrollment after a botched October 1 launch.
