Uncork the Nose´s Secret Powers
Wall Street Journal, by Ellen Byron

Original Article

Posted By:tisHimself, 2/13/2013 11:07:34 AM

How sweet it is to smell. The nose is a hardworking organ, with powers much greater than most people realize. A keen sense of smell offers more flavors, more safety, even more happiness. But be warned—human olfactory powers degrade as the years go by, resulting in a detectable loss by the time many people reach their 30s. Gradually, it can deteriorate to the point where people are unable to notice the odor of rancid food or a household gas leak.

Must be talking about the inability of the Takers to smell the stench coming from Obama.

No #1, the takers cannot smell him because he smells too much like them. Instead, it´s some of the givers who have lost the ability to detect the foul stench of corruption that eminates from Obama and the left.

Bobby Jindal to warn of
´silent war´ on religion
Politico, by James Hohmann    Original Article
Posted By: tisHimself- 2/13/2014 11:31:24 PM     Post Reply
n a Thursday night speech at Ronald Reagan’s presidential library, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal will warn of a “silent war” on religious liberty in America and urge states to pass laws designed to block overreach by the Obama administration. The 4,500-word address, shared first with POLITICO, touches on several hot-button issues, including same-sex marriage and contraception. Jindal, a potential 2016 GOP presidential candidate trying to woo social conservatives, argues that liberals will use the mantra of anti-discrimination to force people to violate their religious beliefs.

Conservative Group Endorses
Broun for GA Senate
The Weekly Standard, by Michael Warren    Original Article

Another conservative organization has endorsed congressman Paul Broun in the Republican primary for U.S. Senate in Georgia. The Madison Project, headed up by former Kansas congressman Jim Ryun, endorsed Broun over four other major GOP candidates. "It is not an exaggeration to say that Congressman Paul Broun (R-GA) has sustained the most conservative voting record over the longest period of time of any sitting Republican in Congress," reads a Madison Project press release announcing the endorsement.

One can reasonably presume how today’s Left would characterize and attack the person I am about to describe to you. Without a doubt, he would be characterized as some sort of dangerous, right-wing, tea-bagging, homophobic, Christian Neanderthal who should be maligned, attacked, marginalized, silenced, and driven from power.

   

 

  


 
Hereditary Democracy?
American Thinker, by James Longstreet    Original Article
Posted By: tisHimself- 2/12/2014 5:01:53 AM     Post Reply
Thomas Paine once said, "Hereditary government violates the rights of the governed." Of course Paine referred to the likes of monarchs and generational rule by birth. However, is our current condition so distant? Birth alone may not occasion the chain reaction, per se, but the money accumulated, the networking that is passed along in families, and the media visibility advantages of birth to a high government official are not of little consequence.

Speed Reading the Pope
Weekly Standard, by Andrew Ferguson    Original Article
Posted By: tisHimself- 12/14/2013 11:44:42 AM     Post Reply
Everybody has an opinion about the pope these days and, what’s worse, feels compelled to express it. Rush Limbaugh has an opinion about the pope. He says he finds the pope “upsetting.” And he’s not even Catholic! It’s true that Rush Limbaugh finds nearly everything upsetting. Getting upset is what he gets paid to do. What has set him off this time is the papal exhortation released late last month, Evangelii Gaudium, the Joy of the Gospel. It is the kind of document, increasingly common, that is commented upon and argued over and tweeted about rather than read. It goes on

´Help´ for Hoarders

Ronald Reagan knew the progressive rationale so well that he could sum it up in one pithy phrase: "The nine most terrifying words in the English language are: ´I´m from the government and I´m here to help.´" Progressives usually wrap their agenda in pretty packages topped with a big bow of "helpfulness." Worse, they may even use the word "love." The tiny state of Delaware, which is where I live, is overwhelmingly liberal in composition, so the state, which seems to be a sort of testing ground for every notion the current federal administration comes up with, is filled with "helpful" and "loving" progressive initiatives. But it appears the state

ESPN Rejects Catholic Hospital Ad

ESPN has reportedly rejected a Christmas commercial from a St. Louis area Catholic hospital because the network found the mention of "Jesus" in the ad to be "problematic." Bill O´Reilly, the host of Fox News´ O´Reilly Factor, said on Wednesday that an ad from the Cardinal Glennon Children´s Foundation was turned down by ESPN even though it is run on other networks in the area. The commercial mentions that thousands of people in the community send "messages of hope to sick and injured children who may not be able to come home for the holidays." "At...

On a recent afternoon, executives at Goldman Sachs invited a few hundred major investors to the auditorium of the firm’s gleaming headquarters in lower Manhattan. The bankers and their guests filed into the sleek, futuristic room and turned their eyes to Hillary Clinton. Ordinarily these masters of the universe might have groaned at the idea of a politician taking the microphone. In the contentious years since the crash of 2008, they’ve grown wearily accustomed to being called names—labeled “fat cats" by President Obama and worse by those on the left—and gotten used to being largely shunned by Tea Party Republicans for

A Least Bad Budget Deal
Wall Street Journal, by Editors    Original Article
Posted By: tisHimself- 12/11/2013 3:21:08 PM     Post Reply
The best that can be said about the House-Senate budget deal announced late Tuesday is that it includes no tax increases, no new incentives for not working, and some modest entitlement reforms. Oh, and it will avoid another shutdown fiasco, assuming enough Republicans refuse to attempt suicide a second time. The worst part of the two-year deal is that it breaks the 2011 Budget Control Act´s discretionary spending caps for fiscal years 2014 and 2015. The deal breaks the caps by some $63 billion over the two years and then re-establishes the caps starting in 2016 where they are in current

The DeMint-McConnell Feud:
A History
National Review, by Jonathon Karl    Original Article
Posted By: tisHimself- 12/3/2013 12:42:06 PM     Post Reply
As he was ascending to the pinnacle of power in the Senate Republican conference almost exactly seven years ago, Mitch McConnell planted the seeds of a feud that could conceivably end his career this May. Democrats, capitalizing on the public’s weariness with the Iraq War and outrage at the GOP’s Abramoff-era corruption, had taken control of both houses of Congress. And McConnell had been unanimously elected minority leader. As they are today, Republicans were searching for a way to reconnect with the public. McConnell, for example, canceled an annual lobbyist-funded retreat at the tony Greenbrier resort in West Virginia in favor of

Pope Francis issued his first apostolic exhortation this week, and it has created quite a firestorm. A Google news search on ´Pope´ following the release of exhortation turned up all kinds of stories proclaiming that Pope Francis says Capitalism is ´evil´ from major news sources raning from the Chicago Tribune to ABC News to the Washington Post. Yahoo News ran AP writer Nicole Winfield´s article about the exhortation, Evangelii Gaudium, (The Joy of the Gospel), with a headline that initially said something like ´Pope Blasts Capitalism, says rich should share the wealth.´ After 12 hours the headline changed to "Pope issues

Paul Ryan is ready to move beyond last year’s failed presidential campaign and the budget committee chairmanship that has defined him to embark on an ambitious new project: Steering Republicans away from the angry, nativist inclinations of the tea party movement and toward the more inclusive vision of his mentor, the late Jack Kemp. Since February, Ryan (R-Wis.) has been quietly visiting inner-city neighborhoods with another old Kemp ally, Bob Woodson, the 76-year-old civil rights activist and anti-poverty crusader, to talk to ex-convicts and recovering addicts about the means of their salvation. Ryan’s staff, meanwhile, has been trolling center-right think

The 300,000-member union that was the first to endorse then-Senator Barack Obama has released a devastating Obamacare report that says Obama´s controversial healthcare program will slash worker wages by up to $5 an hour, reduce worker hours, and exacerbate income inequality. The report by Unite Here--a North American labor union that represents workers in the hotel, gaming, food service, manufacturing, textile, distribution, laundry, and airport industries--is titled: "The Irony of ObamaCare: Making Inequality Worse." "Ironically, the Administration´s own signature healthcare victory poses one of the most immediate challenges to redressing inequality," states the 12-page report.

CBS News investigative correspondent Sharyl Attkisson has reached an agreement to resign from CBS News ahead of contract, bringing an end to months of hard-fought negotiations, sources familiar with her departure told POLITICO on Monday. Attkisson, who has been with CBS News for two decades, had grown frustrated with what she saw as the network´s liberal bias, an outsized influence by the network´s corporate partners and a lack of dedication to investigative reporting, several sources said. She increasingly felt like her work was no longer supported and that it was a struggle to get her reporting on air.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) wowed the beltway elite and even Democrats during Saturday´s annual Gridiron event, showing why the Ivy Leaguer has confounded and been vilified by many with whom he shares the same intellectual pedigree. The annual D.C. roast is hosted by the exclusive Gridiron Club, which is composed of D.C.´s mainstream and "elite" journalists. Cruz has degrees from Princeton and Harvard, which those in the permanent political class covet, and he can do their social rituals better than they can. Yet Cruz refuses to be co-opted by them politically, instead choosing to be a staunch conservative who represents

In an online comedy bit with comedian Zach Galifianakis, Pres. Obama asks what could be considered a very serious question. In a mock online interview on the Funny Or Die website, Obama asks Galifianakis if he thinks First Lady Michelle Obama would marry a nerd: (Video) Zack Galifianakis: "You said if you had a son, you would not let him play football. What makes you think that he would want to play football? What if he was a nerd, like you?" Pres. Obama: "Do you think a woman like Michelle would marry a nerd?"

You have probably seen all of the ridiculous speculating about the GOP nomination in 2016. This is still speculating, but my sincere hope is you don’t think it’s ridiculous too. Kentucky Senator Rand Paul is laying the foundation for his presidential bid in concrete and steel. First, forget about Jeb Bush unless you want to hand Hillary eight years in the White House. The latest Rasmussen poll shows her leading Jeb in a general election 47 percent to 33. His name is Bush and to the general public the specifics of how smart he is doesn’t matter one iota. Then there’s Ted Cruz,

The Oregon owners of a 22-pound housecat who trapped them in their bedroom after attacking their baby say they´re not giving up on their pet and are getting it medical attention and therapy. Two days after police arrived to subdue the 4-year-old Himalayan cat, owner Lee Palmer of Portland said he´s taking the feline to a veterinarian. A pet psychologist also is due at the house to see the cat, named Lux. "We´re not getting rid of him right now," Palmer said. "He´s been part of our family for a long time."

Beyoncé and Jennifer Garner are among the prominent women taking a stand against the term "bossy" and what it stands for in regards to female empowerment. "Being labeled something matters," Garner, 34, says in a promotional video for the campaign. The effort against discouraging girls from leadership is a joint push from the Girl Scouts of America and the Lifetime network. The PSA also includes participation from Jane Lynch, Condoleezza Rice, Diane von Furstenberg, Secretary of Education Arne Duncan and "Lean In" author Sheryl Sandberg. "Girls are less interested in leadership than boys," Beyoncé says, while Lynch adds, "and that´s

Virgin CEO Richard Branson said that those who are skeptical of man-made global warming should “get out of our way,” joining the ranks of CEOs lashing out against those opposed to business investments in “sustainability.” Branson made his remarks in the wake of Apple CEO Tim Cook’s telling global warming skeptics to “get out of this stock” if they did not agree with the company’s green investment strategy. Cook made his comments after being confronted by a free-market activist who pressed him on putting the environment ahead of profitable investments. “If you want me to do things only for [return on investment] reasons,

Former Arkansas governor and 2008 Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee said that donors are rushing him with offers of big-dollar support, clearing away his highest hurdle to entering the 2016 GOP primaries. The biggest difference between 2008 and this year, he said, is that supporters and well-financed contributors are urging him to run and pledging to fund his effort. One of the main reasons why: He has the best knowledge of the Clinton campaign machine, knows Bill and Hillary Clinton and their tactics well, and has run and won against two female candidates. “I certainly know the Clintons; I know
