Heineman likely to succeed Johanns
Human Events, by John Gizzi

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 2/19/2013 5:22:31 PM

Six years after he succeeded fellow Republican Chuck Hagel in the U.S. Senate, Nebraska’s Mike Johanns announced on Monday that he would not seek a second term in 2014. In becoming the second Republican senator after Georgia’s Saxby Chambliss to call it quits, Johanns surprised quite a few observers on both sides. The former governor of the Cornhusker State and secretary of agriculture under George W. Bush had been considered a cinch to win a second term. Johanns, interestingly, made his retirement announcement not long after he became one of two Republican senators to say he would vote

BRISTOL, Conn.— Even gun makers want to be liked. So governors and other politicians from states eager to embrace the industry have descended on places where they are not so popular — like Connecticut, Maryland, New York and Colorado — offering tax breaks and outright cash grants to persuade them to relocate. “I sensed an opportunity,” said Alan Clemmons, a South Carolina state representative, who traveled to Connecticut in the spring as part of a successful effort to lure PTR, a maker of assault rifles here. “They are not feeling loved right now in Connecticut. We’re delighted to

RNC Chairman Reince Priebus joined Sean Hannity Monday night to defend his threat to NBC and CNN that if they do not halt production on the Hillary Clinton films they’re working on, they will refuse to partner with either network in 2016 presidential election debates. Hannity agreed with Priebus that it will probably be a “love letter to Hillary,” while Priebus maintained the GOP needs a better handle on finding friendly outlets and moderators to team up with. Priebus slammed both networks for spending millions of dollars telling the story of someone who is very likely

A gunman opened fire on a town supervisors meeting north of Philadelphia on Monday night, killing three people and wounding two others, police said. Pennsylvania state police dispatcher Tyler Graumenz confirmed that three people were killed and said a suspect was in custody at an area hospital. The gunman reportedly was shot by a local official. A Pocono Record reporter at the Ross Township meeting said the gunman shot through the wall with an automatic pistol outfitted with a scope.

To the employees of The Washington Post: You’ll have heard the news, and many of you will greet it with a degree of apprehension. When a single family owns a company for many decades, and when that family acts for all those decades in good faith, in a principled manner, in good times and in rough times, as stewards of important values – when that family has done such a good job – it is only natural to worry about change. So, let me start with something critical. The values of The Post do not need changing.

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus threatened to pull the group’s partnership with NBC and CNN for 2016 GOP presidential primary debates if the networks moved ahead with plans to air films on Hillary Clinton. “If they have not agreed to pull this programming prior to the start of the RNC’s Summer Meeting on August 14, I will seek a binding vote stating that the RNC will neither partner with these networks in 2016 primary debates nor sanction primary debates they sponsor,” Preibus said in a statement.

Organizing for America, the advocacy off-shoot of Barack Obama´s reelection campaign, has declared August as a month of "action." It is taking a page from the Tea Party playbook and trying to show grass-roots support for Obama´s agenda. Its first event on Sunday, Barack Obama´s birthday, was to promote the benefits of ObamaCare. In Northern Virginia, a base of support for Obama, it attracted one volunteer. One. From Politico: The Centreville event’s lone attendee, Lynn Duvall of Fairfax, Va., told POLITICO that it was her family’s own medical burdens that fueled her passion for Obamacare.

Lee Daniels hasn’t screened “The Butler” for the current occupants of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, but he did get to share a tub of popcorn with the Bushes when he showed them the movie a few months ago. “Barbara Bush loved [my movie] ´Precious,´ shockingly, and I couldn’t believe it,” Daniels said during a roundtable discussion at the National Association of Black Journalists’ annual convention. “I thought it was a set up or something. She sent me this lovely, really powerful email … and she said please come up and show the Butler to us in Maine.”

A questionable decision seven years ago by a politically connected University of Illinois at Chicago administrator has led to the reinstatement of a violent felon to a $73,985-a-year on-campus job. Besides having to put Thomas J. Morano back on the payroll, the state university is on the hook for legal fees and back pay amounting to hundreds of thousands of dollars. Fired six years ago, Morano, 59, went back to work June 3 as an auto mechanic foreman at a UIC garage. He got his job back despite having been convicted of attempted murder

President Barack Obama, the joke´s on you. A study of gags by late-night comics during the first half of the year found an abrupt change from 2012. Now Obama and Democrats are providing the lion´s share of punchlines. Obama was the target of 288 monologue jokes made by Jay Leno, David Letterman, Jimmy Fallon, Craig Ferguson and Jimmy Kimmel, according to an analysis released Monday by the Center for Media and Public Affairs at George Mason University. The next most joked-about individual was New York City Democratic mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner, at 120. His numbers are likely to jump fast,

By traditional standards, the 2012 presidential election should have hinged on who offered the best ideas for dealing with the nation´s high unemployment and tepid economic growth – with most of the attention on the incumbent´s fiscal stewardship. It didn´t work out that way. Instead, President Obama and his team ran a relentlessly negative campaign, with the news media, to paraphrase Bob Dylan, going along for the ride. When Democrats did deign to discuss the economy, they essentially claimed Paul Ryan would roll your grandmother off a cliff in her wheelchair –

White House insiders say President Barack Obama is in “a funk” about what he sees as increasing stagnation and failures surrounding his second term and some worry that the President is becoming more distant and distracted. “He’s not the same Obama that came to the Oval Office after the 2008 elections,” a senior White House aided confided to friends in an email recently. “I’m worried.” Chicago Mayor and former White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel tells friends that the Presidency has changed his longtime friend Obama and many of those changes are “not good.”

In 2008 and then again in 2012, after retired four-star General Colin Powell endorsed and then voted for Barack Obama, the former Secretary of State´s sanity was already in question. At least now, after having his email account hacked by high-level security-breacher Guccifer, Colin Powell´s besmirching of the Republican Party´s "shift to the right" and "identity crisis" finally makes sense. It seems that for years the mannerly and always professional Colin Powell has been cyber-comporting with a 46-year-old Romanian European Parliament member, Social Democrat, and past spokesperson for Romanian president Ion Iliescu named Corina Cretu

Conservatives have for years attempted to put our finger upon precisely why Barack Obama strikes us as queer in precisely the way he does. There is an alienness about him, which in the fever swamps is expressed in all that ridiculous Kenyan-Muslim hokum, but his citizen-of-the-world shtick is strictly sophomore year — the great globalist does not even speak a foreign language. Obama has been called many things — radical, socialist — labels that may have him dead to rights at the phylum level but not down at his genus or species. His social circle includes

In warning about possible al Qaeda attacks against Americans overseas, U.S. officials may have provided too much detail about intercepted chatter and the source of the information, and that may make it more difficult to get such tips next time, former and current intelligence officials say.On Friday, the U.S. State Department issued a worldwide travel alert for Americans, citing an unspecified al Qaeda threat. The bulletin said that the highest threat levels are the Middle East and North Africa, “and possibly occurring in or emanating from the Arab Peninsula.”

For nearly a year, we have had no answer to why the administration lied about Benghazi — why it told the world, not to mention the parents of our murdered SEALs at the funeral of their sons, that the cause of that fatal conflagration was an anti-Islamic video no one saw, when the various arms of our executive branch (White House, State and intelligence) already knew, or strongly suspected, it was a terror attack orchestrated by al-Qaeda affiliates. You only have to read the now infamous talking points to know that. That this lie was deeply immoral is obvious.

Today, across Africa, Araby and Asia, from Nouakchott to Dhaka, the diplomatic facilities of the United States are closed. There’s a Tsarnaev out there, somewhere – could be the Mahgreb, the Levant, the Horn of Africa, the Indian sub-continent – who knows? So, as Richard Fernandez writes, “Shelter in place, this time globally.” Maybe it will work. Maybe by the end of the day there will be, unlike Benghazi a year on, men in custody. But if not? Daniel Pipes: Don’t know about you, but I find this pre-emptive cringing unworthy of a great country, even humiliating.

Several skills that every kid once learned in school are going the way of the dodo in a hurry. Diagramming sentences is practically an extinct art, for example. Cursive handwriting and memorized multiplication tables look to be swiftly headed that way. Apparently, the next thing that kids will no longer need to learn is spelling and grammar. Sugata Mitra, a professor of educational technology at Newcastle University in northeast England, announced that traditional language rules are out of fashion, reports the Daily Mail. Kids don’t need to waste time on those things, see. State-of-the-art computers and mobile phones can make

Common sense tells me that cops don´t need a Taser or a shotgun to subdue a 95-year-old man. When John Wrana was a young man, fit and strong and fighting in World War II with the U.S. Army Air Corps, did he ever think he´d end this way? Just a few weeks shy of his 96th birthday, in need of a walker to move about, cops coming through the door of his retirement home with a Taser and a shotgun.

I have a suggestion. How about an exhibit on Tawana Brawley? If the purpose of the new National Museum of African American History and Culture at the Smithsonian is to remember racial controversies, as the proposed Trayvon exhibit seems to confirm, then how about an honest look at the phenomenon of hate crime hoaxes? Particular attention should be paid to the role of the media in both the Trayvon and Tawana materials. Unquestionably, the media stirred up racial animus, and these incidents both contributed to raising racial tensions.

Police shot and killed an armed teen in the South Bronx early today after the suspect opened fire and refused to drop his gun, police said. Two rookie cops heard shots fired near East 151st Street and Courtlandt Avenue around 3 a.m. and ran in the direction of fire, police said. The uniformed officers saw Shaaliver Douse, 14, of the South Bronx, chasing another person through the streets, according to cops. Douse, who was arrested in May on attempted murder charges for shooting a 15-year-old, fired at the man running on East 151st Street this morning, police said.
