Disaster for Dems
New York Post, by Betsy McCaughey

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 3/25/2013 5:08:56 AM

Democrats hope to retake the House of Representatives in next year’s elections. They won’t — and they’ll have themselves to blame, because 2014 is when ObamaCare kicks in. With a vengeance. The authors of the Obama health law postponed the pain until after the 2012 election. Some popular provisions went into effect immediately, such as allowing children to stay on their parent’s plan until age 26. And the White House granted 1,472 waivers to various companies and unions, exempting them from insurance reforms so they wouldn’t drop coverage for employees and members before the presidential contest.

Anybody remember what happened to Dan Rostenkowski and his Catastrophic Care and Prescription Drug Act. Here´s a reminder:

http://www.aolnews.com/2010/08/11/rostys-catastrophic-moment-over-health-care-was-a-first/

This is a long game. Believe me the Seniors over age 75 and their families will get the bottom of the 9th after they start to be refused care.

Once one admits that Stinky the Gunrunner´s takeover of US medical insurance was not intended to help the consumer/voter, then one has to search for the real purpose.

Of course, its always the same with Stinky the Gunrunner. Destroy the existing industry that doesn´t payola to Stinky/replace it with a "new" and "improved" industry that does nothing EXCEPT the crucial requirement: it pays off to Stinky the Gunrunner and his pals.

If Obamacare was beneficial....they would have instituted it as soon as possible. They knew from the beginning it would destroy people´s lives, not to mention their healthcare coverage.

But the Democrats didn´t care. It was simply an opportunity to grab more cash than they had ever seen before, and they weren´t going to let it pass without trying.

Welcome to healthcare just like Venezuela. I hope Amerika enjoys it; Amerika voted it in.

Between McCaughey´s keyboard and God´s ear. Take NOTHING for granted. How many of us believed that O could not possibly win re-election? Even Rush was shell-shocked.

I wrote to that pantsload, Michael Moore, to ask how I go about availing myself of the world-class medical facilities in Cuba. Yeah, the ones that worked so well for Hugo "Like My Red Beret?" Chavez.

No reply yet. But I´m sure it´s as simple as renting a ´57 Chevy at the airport and driving to the nearest hospital. I wonder if they have "People" magazine in the waiting rooms?

Republicans will be blamed for the failure of this law because they are the party of NO. At least that is what we will hear and an amazing number of people will believe it. I fear the Republican brand has been so effectively demonized by Democrats, that it will be very difficult for this to be a winner for Republicans.

Seniors needing hospital care will be shocked at cutbacks. Section 3000A of the law awards bonus points to the hospitals that spend the least per senior. Hospitals are even whacked for what Medicare patients consume in the 30 days after discharge, including physical therapy.

Death panels? Sarah Palin seems vindicated, doesn´t she?

UPSHOT: Human nature being greedy and materialistic, hospital owners/administrators would be more likely to say "screw the old lady, send her home" than to treat her. In short, tossing grandma over the cliff in her wheelchair.

Welcome to Obama´s America, where old, white, conservative Christians are disposable. Jews are next, so they´d better not get too complacent under this Administration: If a Jew can´t somehow enhance Obama´s aspirations to be Dictator-for-Life, he´d better get out of the way.

"...there´s no question who voters will blame for this colossal mess..."

Don´t bet on it, Betsy.

Unfortunately, poster #5 has the right idea. How many voters remember (if they ever knew) how the vote on ObamaCare broke down along party lines? Between the popular ignorance and Obama´s ability to demagogue, look for most people to blame their "greedy" employers, the "greedy" insurance companies, "the rich", uncaring doctors - everyone but themselves, their hero Obama and the criminal Democrat party.

This country may be so far gone Obama could come up smelling like a rose - posing as the People´s Champion whose wonderful plans for Health Care for All were stymied by the "special interests" and a callous, obstructionist GOP.

As I said, don´t bet against that scenario.

One mistake in this article. She says employers will use part-time workers to avoid the 50 person threshold. That is not correct. The IRS counts part-time hours and converts them to full-time hours to arrive at the threshold number. 40 fulltime workers and 30 parttime workers would equate to 55 fulltime workers.

However, parttime workers will not have to be provided with the insurance. But, the 40 fulltime workers will have to be provided with it or the business will have to pay $80,000 in fines.

Remember folks saying "at least you have your health" LOL. The first to be ´eliminated´ will be the seniors because of the 500 billion obama stole from Medicare. Then Drs. will be retiring and most practices will not be taking on any new medicare patients. Meanwhile dems are fighting hard to cover the illegals they want to have amnesty.

In a logical world there was no hope of 0bama being elected let alone re-elected. But we are living beyond logic and it did happen. Will the magic dust settle on the ´Rats running for Congress in ´14? Their best hope is the RINO ridden Republican Party. And they are doing their best towards that endt.

The majority of zombie americans -- or at least a significant percentage of them -- have never heard of the websites and news outlets that l.commers frequent every day.

They don´t know what you know, and they never will.

They´re hopelessly stupid and forever dumbed-down, and you will never fix this.

Details, accuracy and truth mean nothing in the new American dark age.

Hope springs eternal, maybe, but the truth is that we´re awash in a sea of helpless ignorant morons, which is precisely what our liberal socialist government prefers.

Good luck.

As for the 2014 elections, remember these things: massive vote fraud that now goes unchallenged, a boot-licking MSM, hundreds of millions of ignorant low info voters who recently re-elected the most incompetent president in history, and billions of bullets in the guns of Homeland Security thugs. Outrage of over Obamacare may cause riots in the streets, but that will just play into the hands of the Democrat/National Socialists.

#3 is correct: It has to be all about the money especially the fines. Has anyone heard mention of what happens to those fines? It is probably going to line the pockets of socialists where it will do the most good(/s off).

Don´t be so sure the lofos won´t catch on to the dysfunctional theories of the DC Commies: They might never surf the net, for news anyway or read newspapers or watch Fox but some of them get paychecks and that will result in a facial expression we should all get be lucky enough to see. Priceless. They all wanted in on the fantasy but only if it was free and they´ll see all too well it was anything but. They´ll be singing Paul Simon´s , "50 Ways to Leave Your Lover".

I hope she is right, but very sadly, I too agree with #10. How many elections and/or Supreme Court rulings are we going to have to suffer through only to be defeated again. The Democrats continue their massive outreach with the illegal OFA to get out the word for more freebies. It´s so disheartening and frustrating to live like this. The fact that those criminals in the government and the IRS will have access our medical records is an injustice against us that never should have been allowed. Sometimes it´s almost too much for me to handle.

I think most Obamaites won´t do anything differently once the law kicks in . They won´t buy health insurance and they´ll keep running to the emergency room for every hangnail or hangover. And they won´t pay a dime for the care.

Actually 22, in 2014 we´ll have an election that is between "we really, really mean we want to cut spending and believe in smaller government even though we don´t vote that way", and the Dems coalition.

And then the Repubs will wonder why they lost the House too.

#10 has it exactly right.

When the colossally disastrous results of every grandiose venture the Democrats have initiated in the last 60 years comes crashing down on our heads, from Vietnam to the Great Society, to Carter´s "liberation" of Iran, to Obamacare, the Democrats grin triumphantly and blame it all on the Republicans. And the majority of the people, including not a few Republicans, believe every word of it.

Obamacare is a slow-drip issue, since the government will readjust, change, tinker and obfuscate.

The real issue is jobs and the fact that Fauxbama doesn´t care how many there are. He´s never cared and his putative working-class party has still supported him, probably because they´re either too high on ideology and emotion or because they simply can´t count.

I think people will wake up. But, so what if they do? By then, it will be too late and the violence of the government will be complete. Look how pwoplw just stood in line all day to get a potato in the old USSR- no riots, no revolution, not even a vocal complaint. Government does that to people- it destroys their will to be free. Just give them a potato now and tehn, they go along.

Wasn´t this the same paper that claimed Mitt would beat Obama? Hate to say it and sound defeatist- and I know I´m probably going to get slammed for this- but the Dems will win and continue to win because the will and attitude of the majority of Americans was expressed in the last election. The scales have tipped, and the takers outweigh the makers in this country.

Don´t get me wrong. I am resolved to continue teaching my kids to fight the good fight, but for the good of their own character and conscience- because it is the right thing to do- NOT to save this nation. I believe that ship has sailed.

I do believe a nation like ours once was can and will be created in the future, but expecting it to be reborn from the corpse of the United States may be an unattainable dream. You don´t come upon a roadkill carcass on the highway and tell yourself "Hey, if I got rid of all the maggots, this could still be a pretty good dog." No, the maggots (takers) have done their damage.

Betsy McCaughey is more optimistic than I am. People in their 20s and 30s have been dumbed down by the education system in this country and are low information voters. When their premiums more than double, they will still blame Republicans for it. I do not think they will blame Democrats and Obama because Obama is "cool".

I read these comments, and I want to hope, but I am afraid that 2014 will likely be the Dem landslide that Obama wants. I think that because of what I saw happen in 2012. Everything that happened that was good was credited to Obama. Everything that happened bad was blamed on Republicans. The majority of voters don´t know who does what, they only listen to the MSM and the MSM is in the bag for Obama and the Dems. Prepare yourselves, folks. I do not believe that Obamacare can be removed without dissolving the Federal Government and reforming it. Anyone know the mechanism for that?

Yeah. I only know one, and I really don´t want to go there....

I read the posts here wondering who will be blamed for ObamaCare´s results but...will it matter? If so many doctors retire, small practices are forced into big groups, hospitals have to merge, insurance companies change their practices to conform, paperwork drowns doctors...will it matter in the end? It will be harder than we think to go back.

Been saying here for months that 2014 will wreck the DimWitz.

The GOP will hold the House and most likely take the Senate.
We can cripple Zippy and then take it all in 2016.

The MSM cannot "lie" that your money has not been taken and that your health care
has not been destroyed. Everyone who matters will know it.

The LoFo´s won´t win this one... not in 2014.

Replying to #12, I believe it is even more complex than stated. It depends on the whether
the state has set up an Exchange, If even one person is enrolled in a Medical plan, how many total workers the firm has ( is it considered a LARGE firm by the IRS ) and other factors, Basically, it is a nightmare for many businesses.

Another major problem is cropping up, and that is less and less medical providers want to deal with Medicare AT ALL, even if a person has adequate secondary insurance. When Medicare is the primary, THEY must be billed first, and if the provider refuses to do so, then the secondary will also refuse to pay.
Therefore, there are fewer providers for a medicare enrolled individual to see. This is factual ,not from reading any "law". We have encounter it multiple times so far since the beginning of 2012

What we are witnessing is President Soros with his cabinet of Obama, Alinsky and Piven. They organized the dregs of society in order to use the "Man´s Rules" against him.

100% of the population are allowed to vote with no regard to their loyalty to the country or its founding. These radicals simply buy them off. Obamacare was their currency. The dregs will pay nothing.

My doctor who shall be nameless, hates obama and says he will not do anything that the bill demands. Talk to your doctor and support him. BTW - when does the prez get to dictate healthcare for anyone? I can see the young people going for the bill beause basically they are spoiled and believe everything they hear, see and read from the liberal media. Only when congress, senators, prez and family get the same treatment will any smart person support old dumbo in the WH.

Lots of young Lo-Fo´s voted for Zzippy because he cultivates a "cool" image and spent time courting them on the daily show, Letterman, facebook, etc. where they get what little information they know.

If the Republicans can make the extra $3000 fee for smokers to apply to pot smokers, that might wake them up.

I vacillate between the hopeless feeling so many express here (I have been opted out from Medicare for over 10 years) and having hope? that more will wake up---but only if real repubs/conservativer speak loudly between now ant the next few elections. The R party has become expert in giving the store away--just look at the list of R senators voting to fund Zerokare.

Wishful thinking. Democrat voters are too stupid or too mesmerized to care. I bet the Dems blame scumbamacare side effects on the Republicans -- "Hey, we couldn´t take the time to read it and understand it, because the Republicans would have used that time to block the bill."

My sister-in-law works for a small company in IL. They were informed that their 2013/2014 health insurance plan will not include spouses and this might be the last year the company offers any health plan.

She told me that when she asked the boss if she´d be eligble for "ObamaCare" in IL, where she works or in IN, where she lives his response was "how should I know, I didn´t vote for him or his plan". She was horrified, I had to stop myself from laughing.

I despair that Americans will not see the light.

Obamacare will continue to grow as the country sinks lower and lower into poverty. The death panels will become reality.

In the end we will all be turned into little green crackers to feed the teeming masses.

"Health care" has only ever been about one thing. And it isn´t health or care. It´s about power and control. Whoever controls your health, controls your life. Vote Republican? No treatment for you! Think it´s not coming? Whose dealerships were closed when zippy took over GM?

I think a lot can happen between now and the 2014 elections. Obama is already greatly diminished. From now on everything the DemocRATS will do will be based on how they can win in 2014. They know that when Obamacare kicks in it will be a disaster. When people can´t get the healthcare they need and can´t find doctors there will be hell to pay. The European economy can collapse, North Korea could attack us with a nuke. All this will be blamed on Obama. I hope #33 is right.

Never underestimate the ability of republicans to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory, and the stupidity of the average American voter. After the last election, I am not optimistic.

This is why the Dems want ALL those illegals made legal, and given voting cards by 2014.

They don´t expect to retain the LoFo voters, as they will start to wise up once their pocket books are hit.

The illegals will vote Dem, as they expect that by voting Dem, they will get more goodies !!!

If logic, sanity, and reason prevailed, then Obama would have been booted out in 2012 and the author of the article would be right about 2014 as well. But, remember what tipped the 2012 race Obama´s way: Santa Claus. The majority of the electorate still believes in Barackaclaus. So I expect between now and November of 2014 that anything good that happens will be credited to Obama and anything bad will be blamed on the ´Pubs. That will tip the House into the ´Rat column, and Obama will have a last two years the same as his first two. Wouldn´t be surprised to see a filibuster-proof Senate, either. All we need to do is run more candidates like Mourdock and Akin. Then we get Hillary in 2016. She will make what happened in Cyprus look ike child´s play.

Dems will lose big next year! Seniors are now having to pay more out of pocket than ever before. Charity care for low-income will disappear and they will be left to the mandate to purchase their own medical insurance. Prescription drug costs will rise because of the deal they made with Obama. Repeal will be the buzz word for 2014!

I can´t talk to our doctor, #38, he just sent us a letter saying he has retired, where do we want our records sent?

A relative told me the professional association through which they get their medical insurance has told all insured to find new coverage, they´re getting out of the market.

And my daughter was told that she is being cut back to 28 hours, even though she wasn´t getting health insurance from her employer. Now she will have even less money to live on and pay for her medical expenses.

But it won´t matter come 2014. The dems stole the last election, they´ll steal this one, too.

A Tale of Two Letters: Why the
Peace Process Went Poof
Commentary Magazine, by Rich Richman    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/13/2014 5:46:11 PM     Post Reply
Last week Zbigniew Brzezinski, joined by five other foreign-policy experts from the past, issued an open letter entitled “Stand Firm, John Kerry,” calling for “clarity” on “the critical moral and political issues” in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The letter castigated Israeli settlements and proposed “halting the diplomatic process” to “help stop this activity.” At “Pressure Points,” Elliott Abrams dismantled the letter, noting that, among other things, it ignored history. As it happens, tomorrow is the 10th anniversary of one of the more important items of history the Brzezinski group ignored: the April 14, 2004 letter from President George W. Bush to Prime

Nevada GOP removes social issues from platform,

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

Generally, when we hear stories about the federal government ripping off the businessman, we tend to think of tales of tax increases or burdensome regulations. But a different type of story crosses our desk this weekend, as a solar power consortium – who already received a quarter billion in grants and tax incentives – takes Uncle Sam to the courthouse because they feel they should have gotten millions more. Federal investigators will spend the next year going through the books of two solar-energy companies tied to billionaire Elon Musk in an effort to show the businesses overvalued sales contracts in

EARLIER this year, a column by a Harvard undergraduate named Sandra Y. L. Korn briefly achieved escape velocity from the Ivy League bubble, thanks to its daring view of how universities should approach academic freedom. Korn proposed that such freedom was dated and destructive, and that a doctrine of “academic justice” should prevail instead. No more, she wrote, should Harvard permit its faculty to engage in “research promoting or justifying oppression” or produce work tainted by “racism, sexism, and heterosexism.” Instead, academic culture should conform to left-wing ideas of the good, beautiful and true, and decline as a matter of

The Ballad of Geeshie and Elvie

IN THE WORLD of early-20th-century African-American music and people obsessed by it, who can appear from one angle like a clique of pale and misanthropic scholar-gatherers and from another like a sizable chunk of the human population, there exist no ghosts more vexing than a couple of women identified on three ultrarare records made in 1930 and ’31 as Elvie Thomas and Geeshie Wiley. There are musicians as obscure as Wiley and Thomas, and musicians as great, but in none does the Venn diagram of greatness and lostness reveal such vast and bewildering co-extent. In the spring of 1930, in

There’s something sinister on the airwaves. It’s sloppy, and it’s cynical, but sinister all the same, and it’s race-hate spewing from the absolute top of the Democratic Party. On Wednesday afternoon, Attorney General Eric Holder threw out some thinly veiled race-hate, telling an audience that criticism of his contempt for Congress was “unprecedented, unwarranted, ugly, and divisive adversity” that no other “attorney general has ever had to deal with.” ["Black vote," check.] That same day, Politico published an interview where House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi more openly stoked race-hate, saying conservative opposition to amnesty “has a scent of Japanese internment.” ["Asian vote," check.] Later that

White House to send Biden to Kiev

WASHINGTON - The White House said on Saturday that Vice President Joe Biden would travel to Kiev this month to show support for the Ukrainian government as U.S. officials expressed new concern over "violence and sabotage" by militants it said were apparently supported by Russia in eastern Ukraine. Biden, set to travel to Kiev on April 22, will become the most senior U.S. official to visit the country since the crisis began there. Secretary of State John Kerry spoke by telephone with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, the State Department said. Kerry during the call "expressed strong concern that attacks today by armed

North Carolina answers Democrats’
question ‘What vote fraud?
Washington Times, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/13/2014 4:52:01 AM     Post Reply
It’s an article of the faith of the Democrats that voter fraud is nothing to worry about because it never happens. Kim Strach, the North Carolina director of elections, has living proof — and some dead proof — otherwise. She has identified 35,750 persons who voted in North Carolina sharing a name, birth date and Social Security number with someone who voted in another state in 2012. Another 81 North Carolinians voted after they died. Ghosts have no constitutional rights, not yet, but Barack Obama and the Democrats think rigor mortis need not keep voters from practicing good citizenship. President Obama nevertheless

ABC Apologizes for Story That Connected
Mozilla CEO to Hateful Westboro Baptist

ABC News Vice President Jeffrey Schneider has apologized for a story on his network that connected a CEO who supports traditional marriage to the Westboro Baptist Church and their offensive "God hates f**s" signs. Mr. Schneider contacted the Media Research Center on Thursday after our social media department requested members call and complain about the comparison. Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich was ousted earlier this month when it was revealed that he donated $1000 in 2008 to Proposition 8.

For Attorney General Eric Holder,
Justice is for Democrats only
New York Post, by Hans Von Spakovsky    Original Article

A veteran Justice Department lawyer says that Attorney General Eric Holder has politicized the department in a way he hadn’t seen before. In short, “Holder is the worst person to hold the position of attorney general since the disgraced John Mitchell.” Now in his sixth year as attorney general, Holder has increasingly tilted the department in an ideological direction. It’s one thing to emphasize President Obama’s legal priorities. It’s quite another to decide not to enforce certain federal laws — such as the ban on marijuana — or urge state attorney generals to refuse to defend local laws on same-sex

Justice Stevens and Flexible History

Retired U.S. Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens had an op-ed piece in the Washington Post a couple of days ago that still has my brain doing backflips. He claims that, “Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the wisdom of such rules and to evaluate the costs and benefits that rule changes can be expected to produce.” Stevens certainly did not believe this when he signed onto decisions overturning Texas’s sodomy law, or when arguing that state laws limiting abortion were unconstitutional, or when striking down Louisiana’s death penalty for raping a child (this is

Students are fed up with the meager portion sizes and bland taste of Michelle Obama-mandated school lunches. They’ve stunned their parents and the rest of America with pictures like this:(Snip for photos and tweets)Now, some Texas teens are taking it a step further. The students, who are part of their high school’s Turning Point USA chapter, are launching a #LunchMovement with one simple message: “No More, Mrs. Obama.” The Healthy, Hunger-free Kids Act has been in effect for a few years now. Yet, it seems to have done just the opposite of its stated intent. Kids aren’t getting enough to eat

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) is now accusing the Keystone pipeline of being a cancer risk. Her first point was that the pipeline “will bring 830,000 barrels of dirty tar sands oil into our nation every day.” She then segued to point #2 by asserting that the heavy tar sands oil will put people who live near refineries at risk for cancer: Significantly higher levels of dangerous air pollutants and carcinogens have been documented downwind from tar sands refineries, and in these areas people are suffering higher rates of the types of cancers linked to these toxic chemicals, including leukemia and

Let me obliterate a bit of confusion here: the Obama administration attempted to go to war with a rancher in Nevada. Let me amplify a little bit of truth: They tucked tail and have returned home. And let me add a bit of clarity: they had no choice! As the nation began to become familiar with the plight of the family of Cliven Bundy, many of us harkened back to another standoff in which the Federal government attempted to bully it´s outcome: Waco, Texas and the Branch Davidian massacre. It is telling that in the Nevada case the feds pulled out so

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM. Barack Obama won the presidency because in an election where the premium was on change, it mattered little

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

Say what you will about Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), but they know a train wreck when they see it. They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi. In fact, Cruz’s office confirms he hasn’t endorsed anyone in the primaries. He may weigh in after the primaries. Rand Paul has endorsed two very establishment

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911. The thieves then all bolt outside and escape in a waiting SUV. The incident occurred at the Valencia Town Center mall, in Santa Clarita, at 3 p.m. on

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving
