Herbert Hoover Obama?
National Review Online, by Larry Kudlow

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 11/29/2012 5:23:28 AM

Once again, President Obama dodged the key fiscal-cliff issues at a campaign rally/press conference Wednesday morning. Campaign-style, he argued that the middle-class tax cuts (below $250,000) must be renewed in order to prevent a $2,200 average tax hike from hitting middle-class folks. He added that a middle-class tax hike would cost consumers $200 billion in spending power. Okay, fine. But no one wants to raise middle-class taxes. That’s not the issue. And even if those numbers are right, they dodge one of the key points in the dialogue between President Obama and House Speaker John Boehner.

Obama couldn´t care less what guys like Kudlow think of him. Sure, he is the worst president ever. But what do you expect from the guy who is here to destroy the U.S.

What is not being reported is the mindless drumbeat of the leftards in our federal government and our main stream media about the Bush tax cuts no longer being only for "the rich".

Now they are admitting the Bush tax cuts helped the poor and middle income people by about $200 billion annually.

Liberals lie.

Not a very informed comparison. Herbert Hoover was a well-educated, highly intelligent, accomplished, serious person. Read his biography, even on Wiki, and you´ll see what I mean.

We have a goof-off in the Oval Office.

I assume that the 2% payroll tax will not be extended as I do not hear anyone talking about the payroll tax. Even if the income tax rates are extended people will still pay more in taxes next year and will have smaller paychecks. This will stir up the masses as they do not know this will happen.

A wealth tax cometh. A government job awaits the unemployed: inventory all houses in America. 1% today. 2% tomorrow. Etc. Bank on it. And if you live in a big house and won´t let ´em in to do an inventory, they´´ll just assume that if you live in a $350,000 house you have "X" amount of furnishings. Simple as pie. You got it? They´re coming to get it.

If you’re pretty and educated, there’s a booming new job market for women—as someone’s mistress. What the increasing number of females entering these relationships means for China’s economy and demographics. Spend a Tuesday afternoon in one of the high-end shopping malls in China’s capital city, and you will see for yourself what has China buzzing with gossip—a group of beautiful, young Chinese women with fake eyelashes and sparkling manicures, out to show off their Prada purses and Mikimoto pearls. This is China’s mistress culture out in full force. Stories of Chinese adultery have splashed across headlines in recent months, as the country’s

Will the overselling of climate change lead to a new scientific dark age? That’s the question being posed in the latest issue of an Australian literary journal, Quadrant, by Garth Paltridge, one of the world’s most respected atmospheric scientists. Paltridge was a Chief Research Scientist with the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO). The latter is Australia’s equivalent of the National Science Foundation, our massive Federal Laboratory network, and all the governmental agency science branches rolled into one. Paltridge lays out the well-known uncertainties in climate forecasting. These include our inability to properly simulate clouds that are anything like what we

“What’s your favorite Woody Allen movie? Before you answer, you should know: When I was 7 years old, Woody Allen took me by the hand and led me into a dim, closet-like attic on the second floor of our house. He told me to lay on my stomach and play with my brother’s electric train set. Then he sexually assaulted me.” When I read those words from Allen’s grown adopted daughter Dylan Farrow on Sunday, I felt sick to my stomach. My favorite Woody Allen movie? So many. “Annie Hall.” “Husbands and Wives.” Watching “Hannah and Her Sisters” is a Thanksgiving tradition. “Blue

Obama´s Slumber - Putin´s Swindle

The “reset.” It was silly from the start. Now it’s just sad. America has most certainly been ‘‘overcharged.’’ This past week, if they didn’t already know, our NATO partners learned that Russia is in fundamental breach of its 1987 INF missile treaty obligations. Unsurprisingly, Putin disagrees with that finding. Instead, he’s declared the case closed. And the White House has reacted in true form. As the New York Times notes, ‘‘Obama administration officials are not yet ready to formally declare the tests of the missile, which has not been deployed, to be a violation of the 1987 treaty.’’ We should have known. Red lines… For this Administration,

As the Latest Christie Story Evolved,

In the digital age, news evolves before our very eyes. A story breaks and goes online with perhaps a few rough paragraphs. Soon after, more details are added, new angles explored and writing is tuned up. Finally — at least in organizations like The Times — a thorough and polished version makes its way onto the web and into both print and the archives. It happens every day, all day. But what about a case in which an early version of a story says something that proves to be, if not untrue, then at least overstated? That happened at The

I was an admirer of Philip Seymour Hoffman’s, but I was not surprised to learn that he had died as the result of a heroin misadventure. Not that I was in any way privy to Mr. Hoffman’s private life, it is just that I am never surprised when somebody dies from heroin. At least three young men in the New York suburbs died of heroin overdoses just before Mr. Hoffman’s death, western Pennsylvania is full of the stuff, and Vermont claims to be in the midst of a full-on heroin epidemic. Every few years I read about how heroin is

What Hillary´s Not Telling Us

When Hillary Clinton ran for president, Edward Snowden was still working in obscurity for the CIA. Drones were discussed as deterrents against illegal immigrants, not as counterterrorism killing machines. Lehman Brothers hadn´t gone bust, and neither had the global economy. So much has happened since Clinton quit the race on June 7, 2008; and her tenure as secretary of State plus a year away from pub­lic office has allowed her to avoid fervid political debates. Even issues well trod by Clinton, such as gun control and health care, have taken on new context in the wake of Newtown and Obamacare. And

Process of elimination for center-right Republicans. If Christie’s too damaged by Bridgegate and Jeb Bush is too damaged by his brother’s legacy, who becomes their champion in the primaries? They’d prefer a guy who’s hawkish, who’s socially conservative enough to please evangelicals, but who’s “reasonable” enough to help business interests with things like amnesty. If he’s young, Latino, and telegenic, so much the better. I know just the man. A group of Republican fundraising heavyweights and wise men in Washington’s business community are solidly behind Rubio, and see him not only as someone who could win the White House, but

Hoffman’s haunting confession:
‘I’m a heroin addict’
New York Post, by Emily Smith*    Original Article

A haggard Philip Seymour Hoffman knew he was trapped in a downward spiral, readily admitting, “I’m a heroin addict,’’ to a stranger two weeks ago. The Oscar-winning actor made the bizarre admission to magazine publisher John Arundel at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, after the businessman didn’t immediately recognize him and asked what he did for a living. “He said, ‘I’m a heroin addict,’?” the Washington Life Magazine co-publisher recalled for The Post on Monday. Arundel said Hoffman then took off his “sloppy hat” and the publisher realized his mistake and said, “Oh, you’re Philip Seymour Hoffman.” “Bingo!” the actor replied,

Katherine Zimmerman of AEI, whose work we have highlighted before, wrote an op-ed in Sunday’s Washington Post about the need to formulate a reasonable definition of al Qaeda. The whole column is worth reading, but I was struck most by her explanation of why the military won’t take action against the perpetrators of the Benghazi attack: Here’s the problem: According to recently declassified testimony of Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, before the House Armed Services Committee in October, the U.S. military regards itself as legally barred from going after the perpetrators of the Benghazi attacks

O’Reilly grilled Obama on why Kathleen Sebelius had not been fired, noting that he as a taxpayer was paying her salary, and also asked if Obama thought the “If you like your plan you can keep your plan” claim was his “biggest mistake?” Obama responded to both queries by arguing that the implementation of the Affordable Care Act was an ongoing process, and he was committed to

In November, the U.S. Postal Service reported it had a $5 billion loss for Fiscal Year 2013, its seventh consecutive year with loss. At the time, Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe blamed Congress for the loss, citing an “inflexible business model.” “We’ve achieved some excellent results for the year in terms of innovations, revenue gains, and cost reductions, but without major legislative changes we cannot overcome the limitations of our inflexible business model,” Donahoe said. “Congress is moving forward with legislation that has the potential to give us greater flexibility and put us back on a firm financial footing

We´ve had the Gaymmys; we´ve had Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson suspended for expressing unfavorable comments about anal intercourse; HBO has a new series, Looking about three gay men looking for love. It seems as though just about every television show, whether comedy or drama now has a gay character as a regular. It´s not surprising that homosexuality has become mainstream in our culture because nearly everyone has a relative or friend who is gay and we have been deeply influenced by those words of Harvey Fierstein who said, "I just want to be loved.

President Barack Obama again denied any wrongdoing by the IRS over their targeting of conservative tea party groups, telling Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly there was “not even a smidgen of corruption” in the way the tax enforcer processed tea partiers’ 501(c)4 paperwork. (Snip) “So you’re saying there was no corruption there at all?” O’Reilly asked. “Absolutely not,” the president replied. “There were some bone-headed decisions out of a local office.” “But no mass corruption?” O’Reilly persisted. “Not even mass corruption,” a visibly-annoyed Obama replied. “Not even a smidgen of corruption.” It’s a far cry from Obama’s May 2013 statement called the targeting “outrageous.”

Coca-Cola´s Super Bowl ad has sparked both outrage and kudos on Twitter and Facebook. The ad, entitled "America the Beautiful," features the patriotic song sung in eight languages. The ad shows people of different ethnicities. The ad also shows two dads rollerskating with their daughter. This was the first Super Bowl ad to feature a gay family, according to GLAAD, a lesbian gay, bisexual and transgender media advocacy organization. The inclusion of different languages sparked comments on Coca-Cola´s Facebook page calling the ad a disgrace and unpatriotic. "Speak English or go home," said one commenter on the page.

As the commentary around the recent deaths of Nelson Mandela, Amiri Baraka and Pete Seeger made abundantly clear, most of what Americans think they know about capitalism and communism is arrant nonsense. This is not surprising, given our country’s history of Red Scares designed to impress that anti-capitalism is tantamount to treason. In 2014, though, we are too far removed from the Cold War-era threat of thermonuclear annihilation to continue without taking stock of the hype we’ve been made, despite Harry Allen’s famous injunction, to believe. So, here are seven bogus claims people make about communism and capitalism. 1. Only

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J.—Peyton Manning is 37 years old. He has had four neck surgeries. He has admitted he doesn´t have the arm he used to. But despite all that, it took him until Sunday night to look truly helpless. Like he was staring at something even he, the most prepared quarterback in NFL history, couldn´t navigate. It seemed like the quarterback who had always thought of everything had nothing left. The Seattle Seahawks wrecked Manning and his historically spectacular offense to win Super Bowl XLVIII, 43-8, in one of the biggest blowouts in the history of the league´s biggest game.

According to Nielsen TV data through mid-January, the average age of Fox News viewers is 68-years-old. In Frank Rich´s New York Magazine article, ´Stop Beating a Dead Fox´ he calls Fox News a politically conservative ´retirement community´ that´s losing young viewers at a faster rate than it´s competitors. The average viewers at MSNBC and CNN are 60, and the average is 62-64 for the broadcast networks. Not only are Fox News viewers old, they´re almost all white. Rich points out that only 1.1 per cent of Fox News viewers are black. That´s a far lower number than other news networks. MSNCB has a 25
