Obama’s Library is Not
Taking Down Reagan’s House

ABC News, by Sarah Parnass

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 1/31/2013 5:51:10 PM

Late Wednesday afternoon a story exploded across the Internet, pitting two historic presidents from opposite ends of the political spectrum against each other in Chicago. The Daily Mail reported the Illinois boyhood home of Ronald Reagan, 40th U.S. president, was being demolished to make way for parking outside the prospective spot for President Obama’s presidential library. Other media outlets soon picked up the story. (Snip) First, there’s the part about its being Reagan’s boyhood home. While it’s true the iconic Republican president lived there as a young child, he didn’t spend more than a year there.

The Mail does not usually do original reporting on the U.S., but picks up stories from our media and the internet, embellishes them, adds photos, and blows up the headlines into sensational proportions.

This was first reported in the Washington Times in one of its Communities blogs - 6 days ago:

More evidence of Adolf Obama´s radical agenda against Christain Americans . First our guns, next our religion, then promoting homosexuality and abortion...now destroying President Reagan´s childhood home.
God bless and preserve Mr. Reagan´s all American, Christian sole. A monument should be built there in homage to him ...not to the Antichrist who now occupies the White House.
This monster will stop at nothing to remake this country into a Muslim Sharia run Islamic state. When are low info delitantes going to wake up and take notice?

Gerald Molen, an Oscar-winning producer of Schindler´s List, is accusing the Academy of discriminating against a religious movie in revoking its nomination in the best song category. In a feisty letter to Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences president Cheryl Boone Isaacs, a copy of which was obtained by The Hollywood Reporter, Molen attacks the group´s Jan. 29 decision to rescind the nomination for Alone Yet Not Alone, an overtly faith-based film, over allegations that its songwriter Bruce Broughton, a former Academy governor, improperly lobbied members of the song branch.

Harry Reid: Koch Brothers ´Actually

Breitbart Big Government, by Warner Todd Huston    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 1/31/2014 9:38:52 PM     Post Reply
The Senate´s Democrat Majority Leader, Nevada´s Harry Reid, once again attacked conservative financiers David and Charles Koch, this time claiming they are trying to "buy the country." Reid´s hyperbolic attack came during a discussion of the Obama administration´s use of the IRS to harass conservative-leaning activist groups, Politico reports. The Majority Leader harkened back to the Supreme Court´s Citizens United decision that leveled the playing field for groups to spend money on political causes. Where once only unions were able to flood the country with political advertising, the decision allowed other groups to also advertise on advocacy, as much as they

A reporter for The Daily Texan, the student newspaper for the University of Texas, got it right when calling abortion supporters what they are – “pro-abortion” – five times in an article about a counter-demonstration held during the annual pro-life Texas Rally for Life on January 24. The term even made the article’s headline. [see below page break for image] But she infuriated those who support abortion but who strangely aren’t proud of it. Complaints poured in: “First, someone who supports reproductive rights and access to abortion is not ‘pro-abortion.’” “The ‘pro-abortion’ label is completely inaccurate….

The Barack H. Obama Foundation has officially been formed to begin planning Obama’s future presidential library, its directors announced on Friday. The foundation’s directors, long-time supporters of Obama, are Martin Nesbitt, J. Kevin Poorman and Julianna Smoot. The library’s goal is to reflect Obama’s career in public service, “expanding economic opportunity, inspiring an ethic of American citizenship, and promoting peace, justice, and dignity throughout the world,” the foundation said in a statement Friday. “I’m humbled and honored that President Obama has entrusted me to lead this effort,” Nesbitt said. “The President’s future library will one day serve as an important part

United States Capitol Police told The Hill on Friday that it won’t pursue a case against Rep. Michael Grimm (R-N.Y.) regarding his confrontation with a reporter this week. “Consistent with our law enforcement responsibilities, we looked into the event, determined there isn’t a complainant and have closed the matter,” Capitol Police spokesman Shennell Antrobus told The Hill. The decision comes a day after Fox News reported that the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia was considering pressing charges against Grimm for threatening a reporter at the Capitol on Tuesday after the State of the Union address.

The State Department is presenting a global webcast on February 4, titled "From the Street to Mainstream: The Evolution of Rap/Hip Hop Music." The host of the webcast, rapper and State Department Music Ambassador Toni Blackman, will be joined by Pras Michel, a founding member of the hip hop group the Fugees, to discuss "how rap and hip hop have increased social awareness of the African-American experience — and raised even broader issues in contemporary society."

DAVIE– While most of the stories surrounding the text messages between Jonathan Martin and Richie Incognito have focused on the relationship between the two players, a secondary issue could put both players at risk of further suspension. Incognito’s attorney, Mark Schamel, gave CBS4 40 pages of text messages between his client and Miami Dolphins offensive tackle Jonathan Martin. At multiple points in the texts, both Martin and Incognito refer to drugs. On July 29, 2013, Incognito is exchanging texts with Martin and said, “Pop a couple Molly I’m sweeeeatin.” On August 31, 2013, Incognito is trying to coax Martin to

Ann Romney joined Fox News Channel host Bill Hemmer on Friday to discuss the recently released Netflix documentary about her husband and former Republican presidential nominee, Mitt Romney. She said that she always believed that her husband would be elected president and was shocked that he was not. When asked to comment on the state of President Barack Obama’s presidency, she refused to comment but noted that “the country lost” when they did not elect Mitt Romney in 2012. “I really believe this,” Ann Romney said, “We lost, but truly the country lost by not having Mitt as president.”

Keystone XL oil pipeline clears
significant hurdle
Associated Press, by Matthew Daly    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 1/31/2014 3:20:26 PM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON- The long-delayed Keystone XL oil pipeline from Canada moved a significant step toward completion Friday as the State Department raised no major environmental objections to its construction. The finding is likely to be welcomed by Republicans and some oil- and gas-producing states but is sure to further rankle environmentalists already at odds with President Barack Obama over his energy policy. The department report stops short of recommending approval of the $7 billion pipeline, which has become a major symbol of the political debate over climate change. But the review gives Obama political cover if he chooses to endorse the

At least five hotels near the Super Bowl stadium and the office of former mayor Rudy Giuliani have received envelopes containing a suspicious white powder, authorities have said. The FBI and other law enforcement agencies continue to investigate the potential targets; initial reports said that three New Jersey hotels found envelopes but now it has increased to at least five. But New Jersey Mayor James Cassella told CNN on Friday afternoon that the fire chief says one letter has been tested - and it only contained cornstarch. A letter containing a white substance was also addressed to Giuliani and sent

During this week´s State of the Union address, the President of the United States concluded his remarks telling the story of Sgt. 1st Class Cory Remsburg. Sgt. Remsburg, on his 10th tour in Afghanistan, nearly lost his life when a roadside bomb exploded. Sgt. Remsburg suffered brain damage and paralysis on his left side, is now partially blind and has difficulty speaking. It was a touching ending to an otherwise shabby speech. More striking than President Obama´s tribute was the press corps´ reaction. NBC News Senior Political Editor Mark Murray declared on twitter that, "Obama´s ending on Remsburg wasn´t just

Hundreds of career Justice Department lawyers have broken into open revolt against Attorney General Holder over his support of legislation that would drastically cut back on mandatory minimum sentences for drug pushers. The legislation Holder supports, known as the Durbin-Lee bill, would overturn the current mandatory minimum sentences not only for marijuana violations but for all drug offenses, including major and repeat trafficking in heroin, meth, PCP and other extremely dangerous, and often lethal, drugs. This was too much for hundreds of federal prosecutors. Today, Chuck Grassley, the Ranking Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee, read aloud from a letter the

WASHINGTON — Representative Henry A. Waxman of California, a diminutive Democratic giant whose 40 years in the House produced some of the most important legislation of the era, will announce on Thursday that he is retiring at the end of the year. Mr. Waxman, 74, joins the growing list of House members who are calling it quits, many in disappointment over the partisanship and ineffectiveness of a Congress that may end up as the least productive in history. “It’s been frustrating because of the extremism of Tea Party Republicans,” Mr. Waxman said

LONDON -- Prince Charles has called people who deny human-made climate change a "headless chicken brigade" who are ignoring overwhelming scientific evidence. The heir to the British throne, a dedicated environmentalist, accused "powerful groups of deniers" of mounting "a barrage of sheer intimidation" against opponents. He made the comments at a Buckingham Palace awards ceremony on Thursday. Charles said it was "baffling ... that in our modern world we have such blind trust in science and technology that we all accept what science tells us about everything - until, that is, it comes to climate science."

Remember how liberals pounced on Chick-Fil-A’s owner/president for saying more or less what Barack Obama said in his 2008 campaign for president? That marriage was between a man and a woman? Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel declared “Chick-Fil-A’s values are not Chicago values.” Boston Mayor Thomas Menino vowed to block the chain from coming to Beantown. Gotham’s then-City Council speaker, Christine Quinn, demanded Chick-Fil-A’s one New York store be sent packing. Well, this week Chick-Fil-A values were back in the news. When the deep South was paralyzed by snow that stranded motorists for hours and forced others to abandon cars, Chick-Fil-A moved in. In

Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus said Wednesday that there’s a “general consensus” in his party that something big needs to happen on overhauling the country’s immigration laws and that more specifics would be unveiled this week at House Republicans’ annual retreat. “I think politically speaking it’s a mixed bag, but the question is whether or not it’s something we have to do as a country, and I think that’s what’s trumping the political answer,” Mr. Priebus said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “You see in our party, whether it’s [Kentucky Senator] Rand Paul, who’s called for massive immigration reform, or [Florida

Conservative groups are mounting a major resistance effort against the Internal Revenue Service’s post-tea party targeting scandal rules, which are designed to clamp down on outside groups’ ability to organize as nonprofits and still play a role in political conversations. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell fired a major shot Thursday, taking to the chamber floor to say the rules amount to a declaration of war on free speech and vowing the GOP will try to block them. “Every American needs to know about this abuse of power,” said Mr. McConnell, Kentucky Republican. “Let me be clear: What the administration is

As predicted, the Obama administration and many in the Democratic Party are trying to peddle the story that ObamaCare is now working because the healthcare.gov website is functioning better. But despite the questionable claims of easier access and more people enrolling in the ObamaCare exchanges, the ugly truth is the horror stories are piling up and, sooner or later, ObamaCare’s cheerleaders will have to confront the overwhelming evidence indicting them for repeatedly lying to the American people. As expected, President Obama used his State of the Union speech Tuesday to extol the virtues of ObamaCare, and also as expected, retold the story
