Debate co-chair: ´Mistake´ to have Candy
Crowley moderate presidential debate

Politico, by Dylan Byers

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 2/20/2013 6:05:53 AM

Frank Fahrenkopf, a co-chair of the Commission on Presidential Debates, said tonight that the Commission made a "mistake" by selecting CNN anchor Candy Crowley to moderate one of the 2012 presidential debates. Fahrenkopf, a former chairman of the Republican National Committee, was speaking at the Las Vegas Country Club in Nevada. According to Jon Ralston, the Nevada-based political journalist, Fahrenkopf told the audience there that he was proud of the 2012 debate moderators, but added: “We made one mistake this time: Her name is Candy."

Presidential debates are opportunities for Rebublicans to show how completely they will surrender to the Kneepads. I have to see a debate moderator that was anything less than totally committed to the Marxist/Lenin/Stalin doctrine of total annihilation of liberty.

The media should be barred completely from moderating debates. They are not objective nor particularly even well informed. The debates are staged as a Democrat campaign rally and Republicans fall for this over and over again.

It doesn´t appear that any certified, loyal Republicans serve on the debate commission. For in the past 5 or 6 elections, the Presidential debates were obviously rigged in favor of democrats, especially the town hall format, which is a travesty. As is often suggested by Ldot posters, insist on Fox News hosting at least one debate. Don´t agree to any lefty moderators. Let the democrats whine and cry.

#8 the answer to that is NO.

They don´t think of the affects of their poor decisions have on the GOP Candidate.

They are MORE interested in the appearance of "getting Along" or being labeled as "Reasonable".

They don´t want the Dems on the debate committee to go to the media and whine that the GOP debate co-chair won´t allow certain moderators.

The GOP leaders at ALL levels are weak, cowardly, and timid.

They are the type of people who would ALLOW the University of Wisconsin-Duluth professor print all kinds of demeaning words all over their faces. Without a doubt.

Big Mama Candy with her false facts running to the rescue of the skinny pretty boy politician perfectly defines the state of the media today.

The Founding Fathers fought to guarantee the press would be free. Today the American press has spit on the Founders and voluntarily given up its freedom to become a willing lapdog for an incompetent poser.

White House Masked Fears
of Obamacare Collapse
National Journal, by Major Garrett    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/3/2014 4:59:37 AM     Post Reply
The numbers are still coming in on the Affordable Care Act, and that will continue for years. There will never be one number that tells the full story of the law’s impact on health care costs, the underlying economic health of the law, its effect on the federal deficit or job creation. Obamacare will be a statistical kaleidoscope for its entire legal life—even after this Congress or another changes it under political duress. (Snip)Obama made calls and held some hands. But Pelosi and Reid ran roughshod on the unsettled, herded the doubtful, and schooled the unwitting in the gruesome politics

This year’s model of the so-called peace process between Israel and the Palestinians “is difficult,” Secretary of State John Kerry said the other night. “It is emotional.” Yes, it is “difficult” — especially for him right now, because it just collapsed in utter failure. And yes, it’s “emotional” — especially for him right now, because he’s been embarrassed and humiliated by the public exposure of his arrant foolishness in focusing the lion’s share of his attention on the one key area in the Middle East where everything is not going straight to hell. On Tuesday, the Palestinians took eight months of relentless work

What good is an intelligence establishment if it can´t answer questions we want answered? Bank Rossiya, slapped with U.S. sanctions last month, is the "personal bank" of top Russian officials, the U.S. Treasury tells us. Its chief, Yuri Kovalchuk, "has been referred" to as one of President Vladimir Putin´s "cashiers." (Snip)Mr. Putin fears his people taking to the streets. He fears his friends deciding their billions are no longer safe with him in control. He is not immune. Moscow is a modern city in many ways, but its elite rivalries are prosecuted through primitive and dark arts of character assassination—"kompromat."

Running regularly has long been linked to a host of health benefits, including weight control, stress reduction, better blood pressure and cholesterol. However, recent research suggests there may a point of diminishing returns with running. A number of studies have suggested that a "moderate" running regimen -- a total of two to three hours per week, according to one expert -- appears best for longevity, refuting the typical "more is better" mantra for physical activity. The researchers behind the newest study on the issue say people who get either no exercise or high-mileage runners both tend to have shorter lifespans

The Rye resident recently set up an exploratory committee for a possible run. News 9 had confirmed he will officially join the race for U.S. Senate and plans an announcement as early as next week. If Brown wins the Republican primary, he would face Sen. Jeanne Shaheen in the general election. A formal announcement will come soon. No details or dates have been determined.

Voters in North Carolina can be forgiven if they turn off their televisions. In the battle for control of the U.S. Senate, no state has experienced an onslaught of negative advertising as intense as what has been unleashed in the Tar Heel State. The barrage is being fueled by wealthy independent groups from both ends of the political spectrum and reflects the importance that both parties place on winning the seat held by freshman Democrat Kay Hagan. For more than a year, conservative groups have blanketed radio and television with advertisements assaulting Hagan. Americans for Prosperity, which is closely linked to

Supreme Court Strikes Down Another

Further loosening the reins on the role of money in politics, the U.S. Supreme Court today struck down restrictions on the grand total that any person can contribute to all federal candidates for office. Today´s decision left intact the cap of $2,600 per election that a contributor to give to any single candidate for federal office, but it invalidated the separate limit on how much can be contributed to all federal candidates put together — $48,600.

Four years ago, Poland was set to become the staging ground for advanced U.S. ballistic missile interceptors. But after the plan collapsed—and seeing defense budgets in the rest of Europe on the decline—Polish political leaders decided they needed their military to fend for itself. And now with an aggressive Russia bearing down on Ukraine, Warsaw is getting even more worried—and prepared. “The world stands on the brink of conflict, the consequences of which are not foreseen,” Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk said shortly after Russia’s Feb. 27 invasion of Crimea. Most of all, this means that Poland’s steady military growth—an outlier in Europe—could

The looming wreckage of President Obama’s Mideast peace push could lead to the freedom of a man held captive decades in excess of what justice demands. All the rest looks to be a disaster. Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry are dangling release of Jonathan Pollard, an American sentenced to life in prison in 1987 for spying for Israel, in the hope of pushing the Jewish state to release hundreds of Palestinians convicted of terrorism offenses in the hope of convincing the Palestinians to get with the peace program. The obvious American desperation ran smack into the equally obvious obstructionism of

MANDEVILLE, La. — The conventional wisdom is that the Senate race between three-term Democrat Mary Landrieu and Republican Rep. Bill Cassidy will be about Obamacare. Will Landrieu´s vote for the president´s national health care scheme -- the decisive vote, as Republicans often point out -- finally end a storied Louisiana political career? There´s no doubt Obamacare will play a big role in the campaign. It´s hugely unpopular here in Louisiana — 33 percent approve, 53 percent disapprove in a recent poll — and Landrieu, as much as any other Democrat, is responsible for it. Cassidy and outside conservative groups are pounding

In recent weeks, we examined the Obama administration’s willingness to reverse positions that it had once proudly proclaimed — on whether an individual mandate is necessary, whether the individual mandate is a tax, whether it is important that you can keep your plan or doctor, whether lobbyists should work in a president’s administration, whether a donor should be appointed U.S. ambassador, and so on.(Snip)The evidence before us suggests progressives’ ideal society would be one where they enjoy great power to regulate the lives of others and impose restrictions and limitations they themselves would never accept in their own lives.

Before getting to the speech itself, it’s worth noting a few things. When the Democrats passed and Barack Obama signed Obamacare, the majority opposed it. About 56%, in fact. A majority have consistently opposed that law ever since. The Obama administration touted 7 million sign-ups by March 31 as “success.” When that goal appeared to be unreachable, the administration suggested that maybe 5 or 6 million would be enough. Now, as if by magic, they have their number. Somehow. All along, the administration has touted false numbers of enrollees. All along, the administration has neglected to admit that Obamacare is

A few months back, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius stated for the record that 7 million Obamacare sign-ups by the end of March would constitute success. She was clear about it. But then February came, and February always stinks. It’s just a lousy month. You’re tired of winter, you’re still miles away from spring, and no one was signing up for Obamacare. That 7 million figure looked totally unreachable. So Sebelius does what every other member of the Obama administration does when confronted with inconvenient facts. She lied.

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better.´ But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged Rose Garden appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night. Others were already insured, including millions who lost coverage when their existing policies were suddenly

The North Carolina State Board of Elections has found thousands of instances of voter fraud in the state, thanks to a 28-state crosscheck of voter rolls. Initial findings suggest widespread election fraud. 765 voters with an exact match of first and last name, DOB and last four digits of SSN were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in N.C. and the other state in the 2012 general election. 35,750 voters with the same first and last name and DOB were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in both states in the 2012 general election. 155,692 voters

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, criticized last year by a Vatican official for her support of abortion, received a rosary Tuesday from President Obama that was blessed by Pope Francis. Mrs. Pelosi told reporters of the president’s gift after having lunch with Mr. Obama at the White House. The president met with the pope last week at the Vatican. “I was happy to receive a rosary blessed by Pope Francis,” she said. “It means a great deal to me.” Last year, a Vatican official in Rome said that Mrs. Pelosi should be denied communion. “This is a person who obstinately,

5 Reasons Why Republicans

With Chris Christie in deep trouble, Republican poobahs are reportedly looking to Jeb Bush to save their party in 2016. The former two-term governor of Florida speaks fluent Spanish, is a convert to Catholicism, and has high name recognition. Jeb could raise millions of dollars over night by just saying “yes” to running. Despite all this, there are strong reasons Republicans should say no to him. 1. His last name is poison. Let’s face it, if Jeb Bush had the last name of Something Else he would have already run for president in 2008 or 2012. According to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll registered voters were asked if they would definitely NOT vote for Jeb Bush and 50 percent said they would not.
