Colbert Busch won´t focus
on brother in SC race

Associated Press, by Bruce Smith

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 2/16/2013 11:56:36 AM

CHARLESTON, S.C.— Elizabeth Colbert Busch remembers watching the funeral of Robert Kennedy on television, with her younger brother Stephen — now the star of Comedy Central´s "The Colbert Report" — sitting in her lap. She said to herself, "Someday, if they let women run for office, I´m going to." Now, she´s making that dream a reality with a run for Congress. And she isn´t worried her brother´s fame will overshadow her campaign. "I´m not. I´m so proud of what he is and what he has accomplished," she said in an interview in her campaign office

Her brother is a court jester for the democrat party.

"The community told me I could do it" (commie)
She throws in a reference to Robert Kennedy and lies about wanting to run for office when she was a kid. Lying = democrat

She´ll use or at least hope name recognition helps her.

I´m sure she´ll drop the "Busch" from her name so the LoFos don´t get confused.

Robert and Ethel Kennedy hired Ena Bernard in 1951 to care for their newborn daughter Kathleen. But over the next 44 years, Ena´s job would grow to include raising all 11 children in the growing Kennedy brood and staying on as a member of the family long after the youngest child was out of the house. Ms Bernard died last week at the age of 105 at her home in Sunrise, Florida. 85-year-old Ethel and all but one of her living children - Joe, Bobby, Kathleen, Kerry, Christopher, Maxwell, Douglas and Rory - attended her funeral Thursday.

DREAM Act Advocacy Group to
´Target´ Republicans at August Town Halls

During the August recess, a DREAM Act advocacy group intends to target Republican Representatives at town hall events to pressure them into supporting immigration reform legislation that will most likely be pending before them when they return to Washington in September. The DREAM Action Coalition (DRM Action) is urging activists to attend town halls throughout August in at least 30 states, even in heavily Republican districts, to ensure their concerns get aired. Breitbart News reporter Lee Stranahan attended a pro-immigration reform town hall, hosted by Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee (D-TX), in Houston last week and noted how important it was for

More than 100,000 people are eager to make themselves at home on another planet. They´ve applied for a one-way trip to Mars, hoping to be chosen to spend the rest of their lives on uncharted territory, according to an organization planning the manned missions. The Mars One project wants to colonize the red planet, beginning in 2022. There are financial and practical questions about this venture that haven´t been clarified. Will there be enough money? Will people really be able to survive on Mars? But these haven´t stopped some 30,000 Americans from signing up.

One of the Senate´s top three most obnoxious Democrats just got a serious thrashing by the editorial board of the home state´s largest newspaper. No, it wasn´t Chuck Schumer or Barbara Boxer. It was Dick Durbin and the Chicago Tribune. The editorial board started by throwing his own words in his face: "It is absolutely unacceptable to single out any political group - right, left or center - and say we´re going to target them. That is unthinkable. That goes back to some of the worst days of the Richard Nixon administration." -U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., on IRS targeting

Chicago Public Schools officials today released maps of routes where security will be provided for the thousands of children going to new schools this year. The so-called "safe passage" routes are designed to smoothly shift students from 47 schools being closed this year to nearby schools. (Click HERE to see maps) Parents have voiced concern about children crossing rival gang territories and passing empty buildings and vacant lots. Some of them have complained that CPS has been late releasing the maps. Training for safe passage workers, originally targeted by CPS for this week, is now set

Speaking with POLITICO this afternoon, CNN’s State of the Union anchor Candy Crowley said that her network’s decision to run a documentary series on the life of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will undoubtedly make “life more difficult” for her and her hard-news colleagues. Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus has been vocal in criticizing CNN and NBC for their respective films about the potential 2016 Democratic presidential candidate, threatening to pull the GOP out of their televised debates for fear of an inherent political bias against the party. Speaking with POLITICO’s Patrick Gavin, Crowley confessed that

This day in 1974: Nixon

President Obama is holding his news conference Friday in an historic room on an historic anniversary. Thirty-nine years ago, in the East Room of the White House, Richard Nixon made his farewell address after resigning the presidency over the Watergate investigation -- a final act for a pivotal figure in American history. That same day, Gerald Ford took the oath of office as the 38th president, a ceremony also held in the East Room. (By the way, this is not an attempt to compare Obama to Nixon and Ford; the anniversary is just a coincidence.)

The National Security Agency, which has been hit by disclosures of classified data by a former contractor, Edward Snowden, said on Thursday it intends to eliminate about 90% of its system administrators, in order to reduce the number of people with access to secret information. General Keith Alexander, the general who is director of the NSA, the US spy agency charged with monitoring foreign electronic communications, told a cybersecurity conference in New York City that automating much of the work would improve security.

WASHINGTON –The State Department announced Friday evening that 18 of the 19 U.S. embassies and consulates closed in the Middle East and Africa due to a terrorist threat will reopen on Sunday. The U.S. embassy in Yemen will remain closed “because of ongoing concerns about a threat stream indicating the potential for terrorist attacks emanating from Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula,” the State Department said in a statement. The American consulate in Lahore, Pakistan, which closed yesterday due to a separate threat will also remain closed, the government said. Nineteen outposts had been closed to the public

What is a “scapegoat”? “Jeopardy!” host Alex Trebek has clarified a controversial decision on the long-running game show that sparked angry responses last week. Trebek became the unlikely target of scorn after a controversial decision regarding a final Jeopardy answer from Thomas Hurley, a Newtown, Conn., eighth-grader who was participating in the show’s Kids Week competition. Hurley and his fellow contestants were asked to name the 1863 document Abraham Lincoln said was a "fit and necessary war measure.´´ The answer – or question, rather – was the Emancipation Proclamation.

President Barack Obama held a rare press conference on Friday afternoon in the East Room of the White House, and was treated to all-too-common deference by the White House Press Corps. Only Ed Henry of Fox News asked a question that challenged the president in any way. The rest asked soft questions that often invited him to take shots at the Republican opposition and repeat talking points he has made repeatedly in recent speeches. President Obama began the press conference with a recapitulation of his efforts to grapple with the task of balancing national security with privacy rights

The owner of a shop in Zurich where US talk show host Oprah Winfrey says she encountered racism has called the incident a "misunderstanding". Winfrey, one of the world´s richest women, claimed an assistant refused to serve her in an upmarket handbag shop. She was apparently told one of the bags on display was "too expensive" for her. Shop owner Trudie Gotz told the BBC that Winfrey was "absolutely allowed" to look at the $35,000 (£22,500) bag, which was kept behind a screen.

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie holds a narrow lead among Republicans for the party’s 2016 presidential nomination, but even more GOP voters say he’s the candidate they least want to see nominated. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that Christie earns 21% support when Republican voters are asked whom they would vote for if the party’s primary in their state were held today. Florida Senator Marco Rubio runs a close second with 18% of the GOP vote, followed by former Florida Governor Jeb Bush at 16% and Kentucky Senator Rand Paul with 15% of the vote.

Last month we learned that Megyn Kelly was leaving her daytime anchor gig to take over a Fox News primetime slot. According to an “exclusive” Drudge Report flash this afternoon, that time slot will be 9 p.m. ET. “Superstar newswoman Megyn Kelly has landed the 9 PM slot, top sources reveal,” the Drudge Report wrote. “The shock announcement is set for later this month.” Fox’s 9 p.m. hour is currently helmed by Sean Hannity, leading to speculation over whether he could be out of a primetime gig. There are many possible outcomes from this lineup change,

Nanny State: If any question remained about the Obama White House´s appetite for running everyone´s life from Washington, it should be settled now. This administration even wants to dictate neighborhood makeup. Like your neighborhood? Don´t get used to it. The Obama Department of Housing and Urban Development might decide it wants to dictate changes. HUD is, according to Fox News, considering "a new rule that would allow the feds to track diversity in America´s neighborhoods and then push policies to change those it deems discriminatory."

“IQ is a metric of such dubiousness that almost no serious educational researcher uses it anymore,” the Guardian’s Ana Marie Cox wrote back in May. It was a breathtakingly ignorant statement. Psychologist Jelte Wicherts noted in response that a search for “IQ test” in Google’s academic database yielded more than 10,000 hits — just for the year 2013. (Snip) There is a large discrepancy between what educated laypeople believe about cognitive science and what experts actually know. Journalists are steeped in the lay wisdom, so they are repeatedly surprised when someone forthrightly discusses the real science of mental ability.

The Clintons have decided to rent a different house in the Hamptons this summer after they only received a small portion of their security deposit back from the home they rented last year. The famous Democrats have been frequent visitors to the expensive summer getaway in Long Island, and rented the same beachfront house in 2011 and 2012. [Snip] When it comes to rentals in the Hamptons, many owners use the security deposits as a way to pay for the utility fees like heat and grounds-keeping charges.

You can get a deconstruction of the media at many places. The people who visit the Treehouse want to see the entire context; The entire truth, as it presents. So here we go….

I think he is committed to his principles, which is rare in politics.” Cruz also pointed out that Obama’s principles were “profoundly dangerous.” “I respect that he believes, I think genuinely, with all of his heart, that government control of economy and redistribution of wealth betters the world,” Cruz added.

Justice: The wife of a Fort Hood survivor claims the Defense Department is "slapping victims with gag orders" and telling family members not to talk to the press following testimony in the trial of Nidal Hasan. One of the great scandals of the Obama administration has been its shameful designation of the Nov. 5, 2009, rampage at the Army base in Killeen, Texas, by Maj. Nidal Hasan as "workplace violence." It has only compounded the pain and suffering of the victims and their families who have now apparently been ordered to shut up about it.
