Hanoi Jane Honored
American Spectator, by Larry Thornberry

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 11/21/2012 2:09:51 PM

I didn´t know Jane Fonda was still around either. But sure enough, the soon-to-be-75 actress, left-wing activist, fitness fanatic and general flake is not only sitting up and taking solid food -- health food by the look of her, she doesn´t have enough fat on her to make a candle -- has just received another award. Something called the L.A. Press Club has bestowed its annual "Visionary Award" on Hanoi Jane. Why? I wondered that too. The club explains that the award is bestowed on someone in the entertainment industry (is Jane still entertaining?)

Comments:
There are few people in the universe that I truly hate. Jane Fonda is numero uno. Susan Sarandon joins her at number two.

In a word that´s thrown around too easily, Jane is truly stupid by any measure. And then there´s the whole ´Sunset Boulevard´ aspect of her life. Honorable? Nope and everyone knows it.

Was Jane Fonda ever an entertainer?

The very few shows I saw her in, she had the same acting ability as the doorpost.
Once she was sort of cute empty headed but cute. I thought that and her family connections was the only reason she got parts?

An entertainer, who knew????

Now, now, fellow Posters...we must not be crass, suggesting that Ms. Fonda take a dirt nap, etc. We´re better than that.

In that spirit, I would vote her a long fall down a short flight of stairs, ensuring both hips are broken. Plus, throw in a touch of pneumonia, and at age 75, problem solved.

She is truly a despicable, evil woman who betrayed her country.

The Four Faces of the Republican Party
National Interest, by Henry Olsen    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 3/3/2014 3:18:57 PM     Post Reply
THE COMMON wisdom holds that the GOP 2016 presidential race will boil down to a joust between the “establishment” and the “insurgents.” The former will allegedly be more moderate and the latter more conservative. Since most polls for two decades have shown that around two-thirds to 70 percent of self-described Republicans call themselves conservative, this elite narrative will focus on just how much the establishment candidate will need to be pulled to the right in order to fend off his insurgent challenger. And since the Tea Party has clearly become a vocal and powerful insurgent element in the GOP, the

Feds Provide Billions to UAE Airline
that Removed Israel From Its Maps
Washington Free Beacon, by Staff    Original Article

The federal government has provided more than a billion dollars in loan guarantees since 2009 to an Arab airline that has literally wiped Israel off the map. Etihad Airways, a United Arab Emirates-based airline, scrubbed any mention of Israel or its major cities from a map showing its travel routes in the area. Etihad receives $425,000 annually from the Department of Homeland Security, the New York Post reported on Monday. But those subsidies are a fraction of U.S. taxpayer support for the company. The Export-Import Bank, a U.S. federal agency that subsidizes purchases of American products abroad, has backed loans worth nearly $1.3

If Given Control, McConnell
Vows a Senate in Working Order

WASHINGTON — Senator Mitch McConnell still has a few obstacles to overcome to become Senate majority leader next year. First, he has to win his own primary and general election back in Kentucky, where his popularity has suffered. Then his fellow Republicans have to pick up at least six seats for the party to take over the Senate for the first time since 2006. It is not inconceivable at this point, and Mr. McConnell has been giving considerable thought to how he would run the Senate if given the chance. Spoiler alert: It is not how he thinks it is being

Crimea Is Gone—What Does NATO Do Next?

On the centenary of World War I, Europe´s suddenly facing a crisis of Russian aggression. Why NATO must make a show of strength and reassure its Eastern members. Ever since Russia’s not-so-stealthy invasion of the Crimea in Ukraine at the end of the week, rhetoric has rung out in Washington and in Europe like a call to arms. Except that it’s not—or not yet. “There will be costs,” said President Barack Obama. Secretary of State John Kerry upped the ante, condemning “the invasion and occupation of Ukrainian territory.” NATO called an emergency meeting on Sunday to address “Russia’s military action in Ukraine.

What to do about Putin´s

It is obvious that Russia is conducting an invasion of Ukraine. This violates the 1994 Budapest Memorandum between Russia, Ukraine, the United States and Britain, in which each party agreed to respect the territorial integrity of Ukraine. Russia´s claim that it is acting to protect the rights of Russian citizens in Ukraine is redolent of Hitler´s claims that he was taking over Czechoslovakia and the free city of Danzig and attacking Poland to protect ethnic Germans. Russia has treaty rights in its naval base in Crimea, but it has gone much farther by taking over the whole peninsula; it is

Putin Goes to War

Vladimir Putin, the Russian President and autocrat, had a plan for the winter of 2014: to reassert his country’s power a generation after the collapse of the Soviet Union. He thought that he would achieve this by building an Olympic wonderland on the Black Sea for fifty-one billion dollars and putting on a dazzling television show. It turns out that he will finish the season in a more ruthless fashion, by invading a peninsula on the Black Sea and putting on quite a different show—a demonstration war that could splinter a sovereign country and turn very bloody, very quickly.

Israel is “more isolated internationally,” and will become more so; there will be more Palestinians and Israeli Arabs as time goes on, not fewer, so Israel had better move now; and not to move now is to create the conditions for a “permanent Israeli occupation of the West Bank….there comes a point when you cannot manage

McDonald´s has been hit with a supersized lawsuit. Unhappy eater Webster Lucas reportedly wants $1.5 million from the fast-food company after he claimed the staff only gave him one napkin. Lucas says he ordered a Quarter Pounder Deluxe at the Pacoima, Calif., eatery on Jan. 29. But on opening up his paper bag, he found just one paper tissue. He alleges that when he returned to the counter to ask for more, managers refused. Lucas alleges the debate took a racist turn when the Mexican-American boss mumbled something about "you people" — which Lucas took to be a reference to him being

To judge from the New York Times — which, by the way, no rational human should ever do — the Texas primary on Tuesday is all about who occupies the absolutely, genuinely, no-kiddin’ geographically farthest right position on the ideological spectrum, where none thrive save those who oppose regulation of firearms that could be used to wing an abortionist. Nah. Nothing that exciting or even plausible. The Texas Republican primary field, the one that counts, emits its share of noise, but rumors of an imminent Tea Party, or Tea Party-affiliated, takeover of the state are a little bit over the top:

WASHINGTON — The Environmental Protection Agency plans to unveil a major new regulation on Monday that forces oil refiners to strip out sulfur, a smog-forming pollutant linked to respiratory disease, from American gasoline blends, according to people familiar with the agency’s plans. When burned in gasoline, sulfur blocks pollution-control equipment in vehicle engines, which increases tailpipe emissions linked to lung disease, asthma, emphysema, chronic bronchitis, aggravated heart disease and premature births and deaths. Proponents of the rule say it will be President Obama’s most significant public health achievement in his second term, but opponents, chiefly oil refiners, say it is unnecessarily

The capitals of Europe have gone from complacency to a near panic in the last 72 hours, not simply over the crisis in the Ukraine but in the growing awareness that for at least the last half decade they’ve been standing on a trapdoor. At least president Obama, the leader of the Free World, has. The arms control agreements with Moscow; the “deal” with Syria; Obama’s negotiations to disarm Iran of nuclear weapons; the Russian-controlled northern distribution network through which NATO forces in Afghanistan are supplied — every one of these — once counted as glittering achievements, the crown jewels of the

FOR FIVE YEARS, President Obama has led a foreign policy based more on how he thinks the world should operate than on reality. It was a world in which “the tide of war is receding” and the United States could, without much risk, radically reduce the size of its armed forces. Other leaders, in this vision, would behave rationally and in the interest of their people and the world. Invasions, brute force, great-power games and shifting alliances — these were things of the past. Secretary of State John F. Kerry displayed this mindset on ABC’s “This Week” Sunday when he

WASHINGTON—Police arrested hundreds of people who strapped themselves to the White House fence on Sunday to protest the proposed Keystone XL oil pipeline. The protesters were mostly college students who participated in a peaceful march that began at Georgetown University and ended outside the White House. They chanted "climate justice now" and carried signs with slogans such as "don´t tarnish the earth" in an effort to persuade President Barack Obama to reject the pipeline. They say it will worsen global warming. Protesters were passionate but quite orderly. Police were waiting for them with buses and vans to speed the process.
