Charles Krauthammer on President
Obama’s Fiscal Cliff Campaign:
‘It’s All About Politics, Nothing
About Economics’

Fox News, by Staff

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/3/2012 9:24:01 PM

Today, Republicans offered their own plan in response to the president’s proposal which was presented last week to avoid going over a fiscal cliff. In a three-page letter signed by senior Republicans, the GOP plan included $2.2 trillion dollars combining spending cuts, entitlement reforms, and $800 billion dollars in new tax revenue. The White House quickly rejected the proposal, saying Republicans need to “get serious about forging a balanced approach.” On Special Report, Bret Baier attempted to get more details from Democratic Congressman Chris Van Hollen. He told Baier that there is a major

OK. Republicans, do not make the mistake of replying with a watered down offer. The ball is in Obama´s court. Wait and see what he does, if anything. As several of us have written previously, the "going over the edge" is likely the ONLY way we can do any budget reduction. If the DOD budget is unduly impacted that can be corrected later.

Obama: “I’m Not a Particularly
Ideological Person.”
American Spectator, by Aaron Goldstein    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 1/25/2014 1:53:33 PM     Post Reply
A couple of days ago, I counted the ways why I disliked President Obama following his recent interview with David Remnick of The New Yorker. In the interview, he attributed some of his unpopularity to racism. Dishonesty and disingenuousness are unbecoming a President and here’s another example from the same interview. Remnick follows Obama to a Democratic Party fundraiser at the home of former Microsoft President Jon Shirley near Seattle. He told donors, “I’m not a particularly ideological person.” He also went on to say, “There are reasonable conservatives and there are those who just want to burn down the

Media Not Very Curious
about D’Souza Indictment

The indictment of a major critic of the president has elicited little more than yawns from the media. This is a case where you don’t even have to connect the dots. Just read a little history: After news broke Thursday that federal prosecutors had charged conservative commentator, author, film-maker and professional Obama-basher Dinesh D’Souza with violating campaign finance laws, Walter Olson at the Overlawyered blog posted on the relatively mild civil sanction meted out to a “big-league trial lawyer” who’d done pretty much the same thing D’Souza is accused of. D’Souza has been indicted for allegedly paying $20,000 to reimburse

Obama Shifts from ´Income Inequality´
to ´Ladders of Opportunity´
Breitbart´s Big Government, by Warner Todd Huston    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 1/25/2014 1:22:07 PM     Post Reply
President Obama has already changed his vernacular concerning his second term focus of "income inequality." He is now calling it "ladders of opportunity." In an apparent effort to blunt criticism over his intent to engage in full-blown class warfare during his second term, Obama is softening the harsher term with a new label. The Associated Press reports that Obama has shifted his rhetoric from "complaining" about income inequality toward language that creates an appearance that he is offering support for the middle class. Since his December 4 economic speech where he used the word "inequality" 26 times, the word is

Barack Obama -- our appeaser in chief

As bloodshed and nuclear menace mount in the Middle East, China and North Korea flex their military and nuclear muscles in Asia, and America retreats almost everywhere, how will history judge Barack Obama? Is he the wise Dwight D. Eisenhower who understood the limits of American power and used military might as an instrument of peace? Or the appeaser Neville Chamberlain, whose naivete accelerated Hitler’s rise and led to World War II? Neither analogy rings true. But there are others whose choices more closely mirror Obama -- and they do not inspire optimism about where we are going. Winston Churchill was said to

Eric Cantor Mingling with Global
Elite on Taxpayer-Funded Trip

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) is on a taxpayer-funded trip to Davos to attend the World Economic Forum, where the global superclass regularly meets to discuss multinational issues that are important to them--like immigration reform. Cantor told the Huffington Post on Friday that his trip to Davos, described as a "veritable Disneyland of ostentatious cocktail parties underwritten by global banks, technology companies and other well-heeled concerns," was an "official trip." He is reportedly leading a congressional delegation there. Back at home, Cantor has in the past spoken at the Aspen Ideas Festival, which similarly gathers the "Party of Davos"-minded "intellectuals" about

Outrage over Benghazi Investigation

Judicial Watch’s Corruption Chronicles blogger Irene Garcia, formerly with the Los Angeles Times, recently wrote on the latest Benghazi developments: It’s no coincidence that, days after prominent conservatives--including Judicial Watch--and family members of Benghazi victims demanded action and accountability, House leaders released classified files documenting the Obama administration’s lies and cover-up involving the terrorist attack… Last week, JW joined forces with surviving Benghazi family members, U.S. military leaders, and other top conservatives to call House Speaker John Boehner on the sad job he’s doing investigating the tragedy. In a scathing letter, JW and the other signatories blasted the Republican leader

An Allen West comeback?

Allen West may have lost his seat in Congress, but the Florida Republican is not done with elected politics. West told radio host Jesse Lee Peterson Thursday that another Allen West candidacy would likely be coming in 2016. “I will definitely come back,” said West, who lost his seat in 2012 to now-Congressman Patrick Murphy by fewer than 3,000 votes. This year, for the midterm elections, West said, he was going to work to help other people get elected, specifically: “more military, minority conservatives.” “In the 2016 cycle, we’ll look to getting back in and running myself,” he said in

Pentagon: U.S. not capable of

American intelligence and security agencies are not currently capable of detecting when foreign nations are building nuclear weapons or ramping up their existing programs, according to a newly released Pentagon report that faults a range of U.S. agencies. “The nation is not yet organized or fully equipped” to detect clandestine nuclear activities across the globe, and in most cases “current solutions are either inadequate, or more often, do not exist,” according to the report, which was compiled over three years by the Pentagon’s Defense Science Board. More nations than ever are pursuing nuclear arms. However, the United States does not have the

Last week, conservative Bloomberg columnist Megan McArdle and American Enterprise Institute fellow Scott Gottlieb debated New York magazine’s liberal columnist Jonathan Chait and former Assistant Surgeon General Douglas Kamerow over the proposition that Obamacare is “beyond rescue.” If you have an hour and a half of free time and a nearby brick wall to repeatedly smash your head into, you can watch the whole debate here. In the event that you’re unfamiliar with Salon dot com, suffice to say, I stand with Chait and Kamerow. I didn’t write about this earlier because, even though McArdle and Gottleib won the debate

Republican and business advocates for immigration reform said Friday they were encouraged by signs that the House GOP plans to take up the issue after months of delay. But Gov. Rick Snyder (R-Mich.) and former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg (I) warned the party not to get bogged down by details or scared off by criticism from a minority of conservative opponents. “If you are against the fastest-growing voting bloc in the country, you and your party don’t have a future,” said Bloomberg, who quit the GOP in 2007.

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. After all, the pols can’t offend that pivotal ganja-American voting bloc, assuming they can remember to vote in November. It’s left to comedians like Jay Leno Thursday night to poke around the truth: “Doctors warn that pot smoking impairs young people’s thinking, which of course makes them much more likely to sign up

America is set for the coldest month of the century as weather forecasters predict yet another freezing blast of Arctic air - putting Super Bowl Sunday in jeopardy. Teams have been warned to stay on high alert for changes to the scheduling of the first Super Bowl to be played in an open-air stadium. Temperatures have already hit record lows, at times making parts of the U.S. colder than the North Pole, and are expected to plunge in the coming days. The timing could not be worse for one of the biggest global sporting events, which will be exposed to

The Republican Party has a great opportunity to re-gain control of the country, but it must seize the day, U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina said Saturday night. 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. Lee Bright of Spartanburg, Orangeburg attorney Bill Connor, Upstate businessman Richard Cash and Citadel graduate and Lowcountry public relations businesswoman Nancy Mace.

AUSTIN, Texas -- Texas started a trend by making most of its high school students tackle algebra II. But eight years later, the state often watched for education policy is abandoning the requirement. The move is being praised by school districts for affording them more flexibility. But some policy experts are nervous because nearly 20 states have since followed Texas´ lead in requiring the advanced math course. Supporters say fewer curriculum mandates give students more time to focus on vocational training for high-paying jobs that don´t necessarily require a college degree.

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

Attempting to reverse sagging approval ratings, President Obama plans to continue his pointed pitch to members of Congress in his annual State of the Union speech Tuesday night -- that he will use his executive power to take action on his own to help reduce income inequality in the country. White House communications aides have spent the past week saying Obama plans to hit this theme in the speech, and on Saturday they offered a bit more information. Dan Pfeiffer, White House communications director, sent out an email Saturday to supporters saying Obama´s message Tuesday night can be summed up

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.

The Texas governor race catapulted onto the national scene earlier this week, when an undercover video revealed supporters of Democratic candidate Wendy Davis mocking Republican rival Greg Abbott’s use of a wheelchair. Battleground Texas, the group of Davis supporters caught making the comments, naturally denied the video’s validity. Additionally, Davis issued a statement condemning the language used in the video. In an interview with Megyn Kelly, Abbott, who is the attorney general of Texas, responded to the ordeal: Denigrating the disabled is unworthy of Texas….What Texans really look at is the depth of character.
