Rebirth of Book
by Aide to Carter

New York Times, by Julie Bosman

Original Article

Posted By:FlyRight, 7/27/2013 8:24:58 AM

Hamilton Jordan, Jimmy Carter’s young, brash chief of staff, was famous during the administration for negotiating tough deals, carousing at night and shunning the stuffy customs of official Washington. He spent the final years of his life on a quieter pursuit: writing a memoir of nearly 300 pages that was not quite finished at the time of his death in 2008. Now his daughter, Kathleen, a 24-year-old television producer, is rushing to polish the manuscript in the hope of getting it published

Obama’s Belated Defense of the NSA
National Review, by Andrew C. McCarthy    Original Article
Posted By: Flyright- 1/19/2014 7:01:51 AM     Post Reply
It is very hard to take President Obama seriously. At Friday’s big surveillance speech, after five years of Big Government–orchestrated Constitution shredding, he looked the American people in the eye and explained that, as monitoring technology has evolved over the centuries, our nation has always “benefitted from both our Constitution and traditions of limited government.” While your head was still spinning, another whopper: After five years of whimsically “waiving,” ignoring, and unilaterally rewriting congressional statutes, he bleated that “our system of government is built on the premise that our liberty cannot depend on the good intentions of those in power;

Dangers of Giving In

I found the machinations in the Netflix political series “House of Cards” to be immensely entertaining but a little over the top — until, that is, the traffic jam scandal in New Jersey.I was initially perplexed by what appears to have been a ham-handed effort by Gov. Chris Christie’s aides and his appointees at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey to retaliate against Fort Lee’s mayor, Mark Sokolich, by tying up traffic at the George Washington Bridge, which connects Fort Lee to Manhattan. If retaliation is what it was, it would have worked only if the supposed offender knew he was being punished and why.

Dennis Rodman has checked into an undisclosed alcohol rehabilitation center to treat his long-time struggle with alcoholism, his agent says.Darren Prince declined on Saturday to say which facility will treat Rodman and how long he will be there. Rodman recently returned to the United States from his latest trip to North Korea. He later apologized for comments he made in North Korea about a detained American missionary, saying he had been drinking and was under pressure as he organized an exhibition game there. He also sang “Happy Birthday” to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un at the start of the friendly

France’s first lady discharged
after ‘drug overdose’
New York Post, by Staff    Original Article

France’s first lady, Valerie Trierweiler, left the hospital Saturday after spending a week recovering from what the European press described as a drug overdose. Her stay at La Pitie-Salpetriere hospital coincided with allegations that President Francois Hollande was having an affair with actress Julie Gayet. Hollande, who isn’t married to either woman, has said he would sort out the love triangle before a Feb. 11 state visit to Washington — an event to which Trierweiler, his official girlfriend, would normally accompany him. Speculation has swirled for more than a week that Gayet may replace Trierweiler as France’s top dame.

   

 

  


 
In new film, a dramatic look at
Mitt Romney´s loss of confidence
Washington Examiner, by Byron York    Original Article
Posted By: Flyright- 1/18/2014 4:58:11 PM     Post Reply
A new documentary about Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney premiered Friday night at the Sundance Film Festival in Utah. The film, "Mitt," is an extraordinarily intimate look at the former Massachusetts governor as he ran for president twice, in 2008 and 2012. Director Greg Whiteley had impressed Romney with his 2005 documentary "New York Doll," which brilliantly chronicled a broken-down rock musician´s conversion to Mormonism, and for the new film, Romney gave Whiteley unprecedented freedom to record behind-the-scenes moments as the candidate and his family endured the trials of two presidential campaigns. Some of the film´s themes are not exactly new.

Piers Morgan: Say, Isn´t Ambassador Stevens
to Blame For His Own Death In Benghazi?
Townhall, by Leah Barkoukis    Original Article
Posted By: Flyright- 1/18/2014 3:45:22 PM     Post Reply
A bipartisan Senate intelligence committee report on Benghazi was released this week, which placed blame on the State Department and intelligence agencies for the failures that led to the death of four Americans on Sept. 11, 2012. Discussing the report’s findings with Piers Morgan, Sen. John McCain laid into the State Department and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for their mishandling of the situation—but that’s when things took a rather unusual turn. Morgan actually attempted to deflect some of the blame to Ambassador Chris Stevens, who was killed during the attack:

MOSCOW — A gay Russian protester was detained on Saturday for unfurling a rainbow flag during the Olympic torch relay as it passed through his hometown of Voronezh, 560 miles (910 kilometers) north of Sochi, where the games will begin Feb. 7.Photos uploaded by his friends show Pavel Lebedev pulling out the flag and then being detained by Olympic security personnel, who wrestle him to the snow as they wait for police to arrive. Lebedev, reached by The Associated Press on the phone, said he was still in the police station and undergoing questioning. "Hosting the games here contradicts the basic

This baby-faced teen is a key suspect in developing the software that was used in the massive security breach that hit as many as 110 million Target shoppers last holiday season, according to a shocking new report. In addition, the malicious software, or malware, has infected the payment systems of six other retailers — a possible sign that a half-dozen other attacks are underway, a California cyber-security firm said in the report. The firm, IntelCrawler, which has tracked the malware’s architect for months, ut/press08?>said on Friday that its main suspect is this boy in the photo. He’s a 17-year-old with “roots” in

A Fork? De Blasio’s Way of
Eating Pizza Is Mocked
New York Times, by MICHAEL M. GRYNBAUM    Original Article

The pizza arrived, steaming and delectable, a smoked-mozzarella-and-sausage pie presented to Mayor Bill de Blasio like a gilded offering to a visiting caliph. The mayor, on a pilgrimage on Friday to Goodfellas, a venerable Staten Island pizzeria, smiled, nodded at his slice and then proceeded to do the unthinkable: eat it with a knife and fork. Cue the foodie firestorm. “Disaster,” declared a writer at New York magazine, citing the longstanding city protocol of devouring pizza, no matter how greasy, with the hands, and the hands only. One website called it Mr. de Blasio’s first mistake as mayor.

Finally! White House to replace
lead HealthCare.gov contractor

The Obama administration plans to replace the lead contractor on HealthCare.gov, the glitchy federal website that hindered the fall rollout of the new health care law, with another company. Officials plans to drop CGI Federal, after the company took a share of blame for its role in preparing a website that serves 36 states and needed extensive repairs after its Oct. 1 launch, the Washington Post first reported. A major consulting company, Accenture, will take its place. CGI’s contract runs out at the end of February, and Accenture had built the relatively well-functioning health exchange that California is using to enroll people

The battle over New York’s carriage horses just got hunkier.Hollywood badass Liam Neeson went one-on-one with killjoy Mayor de Blasio, slamming Hizzoner for vowing to ban the city’s 220-plus clip-clopping, carriage-pulling equines from city streets and Central Park. “They’ll die, you know, darlin,’?” Liam, who at 6-foot-4 can pretty much look the 6-foot-5 mayor in the eye, told me in his gorgeous Northern Irish brogue. The 61-year-old heartthrob interrupted his hectic A-list acting schedule to call me Thursday night, alarmed by de Blasio’s treachery. “It’s criminal!’’ cried Liam. “This is an iconic, historic part of New York. “The horses are incredibly well-treated.

President Obama has been losing his TV audience — literally. With the State of the Union proving ever less entrancing for viewers, the White House is desperate to turn the speech into a multiday event in an effort to bolster interest in Mr. Obama’s policies, even if people don’t tune in to hear his words. With online question-and-answer sessions, a “virtual road trip” scheduled for Friday and a presidential video, the White House is determined to spread Mr. Obama’s message beyond Tuesday night’s hourlong address. “Literally, the conversation never ends,” said Lee Rainie, director of the Pew Research Center’s Internet

Representative Steve Stockman (R-TX), who has been nowhere to be seen for almost three weeks, may have just turned up in London after a trip to Russia, according to Breitbart. Stockman, who submitted a last-minute longshot primary challenge to Senator John Cornyn (R-TX), has missed fifteen roll call votes since January 9, and has held nary a campaign event, despite drastically trailing Cornyn in the polls for an election in early March. Reporters trying to track Stockman down have been met with unresponsive campaign and congressional offices, though he appeared to have been located last week in Cairo, Egypt. Breitbart reported Sunday

Has Marxist/Leninist pal of Bill Ayers Mike Klonsky just given us the reason for the arrest of conservative writer Dinesh D´Souza? Does he have inside information? On January 24, Klonsky dashed off a quick "note" to D´Souza on his Small Talk Blog: Note to Dinesh D´Souza -- You probably shouldn´t have Tweeted that racist remark about Obama and Trayvon Martin.

Last week the Wall Street Journal published Gregory Hicks’s column “Benghazi and the smearing of Chris Stevens.” It would be easy to overlook Hicks’s column in the crush of last week’s news, but it is deserving of special attention. In the column Hicks offers his eyewitness testimony to the security issues that Stevens dealt with at our Libyan facilities before his death. The redacted report of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence Committee that was released on January 15 has left some to draw the conclusion that Stevens rejected additional security and to imply that he is responsible for the success

President Barack Obama was right when he said, “The long-term unemployed are not lazy. They’re not lacking in motivation. They’re coping with the aftermath of the worst economic crisis in generations.” He should know, his policies prolong the situation. From a promised minimum wage increase, to destabilization of the health care system, to an energy policy encapsulated by “Under my plan … electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket,” no part of the Obama vision is about making America freer and richer. (Snip) Washington’s unreality has become offensive on a personal level, almost an affront to America itself. Washington is booming at

Sen.

"Yes, things have changed. White Anglo-Saxon men are not exclusively running the country anymore," he said Thursday.

Former Vice President Al Gore raised eyebrows last week when he suggested that “fertility management” was the key to fighting global warming and promoting economic development in poor countries. Gore’s comments drew criticism from free-marketeers who said his remarks amount to “eco-imperialism.” “Gore’s agenda for saving the world from global warming has always included population control,” Myron Ebell, director of global warming and international environmental policy at the free-market Competitive Enterprise Institute, told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “Advocating population control specifically for Africa is just another form of imperialism. Gore’s eco-imperialism is uncomfortably close to the original racist goals of

WASHINGTON — President Obama plans to sign an executive order requiring that janitors, construction workers and others working for federal contractors be paid at least $10.10 an hour, using his own power to enact a more limited version of a policy that he has yet to push through Congress. The order, which Mr. Obama will highlight in his annual State of the Union address on Tuesday night, is meant to underscore an increasing willingness by the president to bypass Congress if lawmakers continue to resist his agenda, aides said. After a year in which most of his legislative priorities went nowhere,
