Obama bumbles as Syria burns
USA Today, by Jonah Goldberg

Original Article

Posted By:FlyRight, 9/4/2013 5:46:22 PM

The Germans seem to have coined a word for every dark emotion -- schadenfreude (joy over someone else´s misfortune), futterneid (envy over someone else´s superior food) etc. -- but I´ve been searching in vain for a Teutonic term for that annoyance one feels when someone agrees with you for the wrong reasons. Since I can´t find it, I´ll just make it up: zustimmenärger.President Obama´s decision to seek congressional approval for attacking Syria has my zustimmenärger levels in the red zone. Not so many of my friends on the right. While pretty much everyone across the ideological spectrum is shaking their

Check out jonmcnaughton.com and his painting "The Demise of America." Obama fiddles.

He has a bunch of good political statements in his paintings as well as religious impressions.

O-Care premiums to skyrocket
The Hill, by Elise Viebeck    Original Article
Posted By: FlyRight- 3/19/2014 7:22:26 AM     Post Reply
Health industry officials say ObamaCare-related premiums will double in some parts of the country, countering claims recently made by the administration. The expected rate hikes will be announced in the coming months amid an intense election year, when control of the Senate is up for grabs. The sticker shock would likely bolster the GOP’s prospects in November and hamper ObamaCare insurance enrollment efforts in 2015. The industry complaints come less than a week after Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius sought to downplay concerns about rising premiums in the healthcare sector. She told lawmakers rates would increase in 2015 but

Russia´s Putin prepares to annex Crimea

MOSCOW — President Vladimir Putin put the annexation of Crimea on a fast track Tuesday morning, ordering the drafting of an accession agreement between Crimea and Russia.Later in the day he will be making an unusual address to a joint session of the Russian parliament, where he will lay out his plans for the region.The speech comes as a defiant Russia shows no sign of bending to American or European pressure over the Crimea crisis, which has turned into the sharpest confrontation between Moscow and the West since the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan in 1979. The Crimean parliament voted Monday

Why de Blasio can’t ban horse carriages
New York Post, by Nicole Gelinas    Original Article
Posted By: FlyRight- 3/17/2014 7:37:13 AM     Post Reply
Mayor de Blasio can fight with the groundhog. He can fight with the governor. He can fight with charter-school lady Eva Moskowitz. But on this St. Patrick’s Day, he’d be wise to drop his fight with the Irish. De Blasio promised last year that his first act as mayor would be to kill 300 middle-class jobs, many held by Irish immigrants. “Here it goes,” he pledged. “First thing, it’s time to ban horse carriages in New York.” Why? The horses are well-treated, as everybody (except the don’t-bother-us-with-facts folks at PETA) knows by now.Simple. A tiny cadre of donors showered the mayor with

Obama White House Afraid of Putin

Former Reagan and Bush administration official Elliott Abrams argued the United States should not fear any retaliation that results from sanctions against Russia Friday on Fox News.The White House, according to Abrams, appears “scared” of the Russian president and his ability to inflict damage on American geopolitical and economic interests.Ironically, the former diplomat added the State Department seems to be less skittish than the rest of President Obama’s foreign policy team. U.S. economic interests in Russia, Abrams said, are relatively small and are confined to a few firms, reducing the likelihood Russian penalties against American companies would have any effect on

   

 

  


 
My cross to bear – why I no longer

Fox News, by Laura Ashburn    Original Article

Investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson tweeted five simple words last week: “I resigned from CBS News.” Seconds later, a website report explained why. Sources say she felt frustrated with the network’s “liberal bias.” If true, in a nutshell, she had become a square peg in a round hole, and was tired of pretending otherwise.Another reporter did the math. From the time Attkisson started covering topics critical of the Obama administration, like Benghazi and the government’s "Fast and Furious" gun walking program, her face time on the network dropped off.I hid my beliefs in the name of the news gods.Based on these

Obama has his Munich
moment with Putin and Crimea

Back in September, John Kerry told Washington Democrats that America faced a “Munich moment” in deciding how to respond to Syria’s use of chemical weapons. He called Bashar al-Assad a “two-bit dictator” who would commit more atrocities unless he was stopped.Right idea, wrong war. The real Munich moment of our times is taking place in Ukraine.Vladimir Putin is on the march, and there’s no telling how far he’ll go if he’s allowed to gobble up Crimea without paying a serious price. That is the lesson of Munich, the infamous agreement in 1938 when Britain’s Neville Chamberlain struck a deal with

Rupert Murdoch, the newly single media tycoon, has acquired the triplex penthouse that crowns One Madison, the 60-story sliver of bronze glass designed by CetraRuddy, for $43,010,000. A 6,850-square-foot sponsor unit, it was the most expensive sale of the week, according to city records.The listing price for the condominium, on the southeast side of Madison Square Park at East 22nd Street, had been $50 million. But Mr. Murdoch preferred to buy it as raw space, in so-called white-box form, to orchestrate the finishing touches with his handpicked design team; hence the discount. Raw or not, it has monthly carrying costs

Following is the text of Prime Minister Najib Razak’s statement Saturday on the investigation into the missing Malaysia Airlines plane, as provided by Mr. Najib’s office.Seven days ago Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 disappeared. We realize this is an excruciating time for the families of those on board. No words can describe the pain they must be going through. Our thoughts and our prayers are with them. I have been appraised of the ongoing search operation round the clock. At the beginning of the operation, I ordered the search area to be broadened; I instructed the Malaysian authorities to share all relevant

The Political Mystery of Malaysia Flight 370

Plane crashes are always political. That principle is on full view in the discordant mystery of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, which grew even murkier on Thursday, with reports that the plane may have flown for four hours after contact was lost. That information was attributed to Obama Administration officials, who offered it to explain why American military assets might be deployed to a new body of water. The search has hopped from the Gulf of Thailand, crossing the breadth of the Malaysian peninsula to the Strait of Malacca, and now to the Indian Ocean. Malaysian authorities had denied a similar

In a jam, Dems don´t

When it comes to Obamacare, many Democrats take comfort in polls showing a small majority of voters, or at least a plurality, oppose repealing the Affordable Care Act. To them, that proves the Republicans´ do-away-with-it position is out of sync with voters as this November´s midterm elections approach.The argument shows how far Democrats have retreated from the heady days when they rammed Obamacare through Congress over unanimous GOP opposition. Democrats can´t argue that most people actually like the new law, and indeed many Democratic candidates have adopted a new mantra that it needs to be "fixed." But at least voters

The words came out of my mouth before I could stop them. “I feel sorry for Obama,” I said. As my wife looked at me in disbelief, I quickly added a correction. “Well, almost.” Beset by failures at home and abroad, the president cuts a lonely and sad figure these days. His aura of grief reflects his profound loss. His worldview crashed headlong into reality, and reality won. Obamaism is dead, may it rest in peace. That’s sad for him, but hold the tears — his loss is mankind’s hope. If Obama wakes from his utopian visions and faces the

Secretary of State John Kerry called Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday morning to protest insults the Israeli defense minister directed at the Obama administration this week, the State Department said. In a speech at Tel Aviv University on Monday, Moshe Ya’alon criticized President Obama for having a weak foreign policy, and said Israel could no longer rely on the United States to lead nuclear negotiations with Iran. “Secretary Kerry spoke with Prime Minister Netanyahu this morning. And he protested to him his concerns about these comments,” State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki told reporters Wednesday. The U.S., Psaki reaffirmed, maintains an “unshakable

Has President Obama´s impunity come to an end? After five years of his flouting the letter and spirit of the law in an increasingly brazen fashion, congressional Republicans have been starting to ramp up their rhetoric about Obama´s lawlessness, their most concerted effort on the issue to date. Several new reports from top Republicans underscore the breadth of Obama´s executive overreach. Viewed comprehensively, it involves laws ranging from healthcare to immigration to privacy to technology to social issues to national security matters and more. Scandals like Benghazi, Operation Fast and Furious, the IRS targeting of conservative groups, NSA spying, CIA

First Lady Michelle Obama will be accompanied by her children and her mother on her trip to China, which begins today. But she won´t be accompanied by the press. "Michelle Obama’s trip to China starting on Wednesday will be nonpolitical, the White House says, a ´people-to-people exchange´ emphasizing the importance that both nations place on education. As if to underscore the point, no reporters are traveling with the first lady, and she does not plan to give interviews while there," reports the New York Times. The White House is defending the first lady bringing her family along for the ride by saying

White House executive pastry chef Bill Yosses is resigning after First Lady Michelle Obama fundamentally changed his job duties to focus on healthier food. Yosses is leaving the White House in June to work on a new project focusing on “food literacy” and The New York Times says Michelle is “partly to blame.” The openly gay chef was hired by Laura Bush in 2007 to make his trademark cookie plates and sugar sculptures. Mrs. Obama took over in 2009 and ordered Yosses to make healthier plates in smaller portions. (Snip) “I don’t want to demonize cream, butter, sugar and eggs,”

Government officials now admit the data system and transponder quit communicating after the pilots said things were OK. That means they didn’t lie. The official Malaysian account of the last contacts made to and received by Flight MH370 is unraveling. As it does, the sinister interpretations of what happened in the cockpit of the Boeing 777 become less persuasive. We return to the all-important timeline. Originally, the Malaysians said that the last words from the cockpit—from the copilot, “All right, good night”—were spoken to air traffic controllers as the airplane left Malaysian air space at 1:30am. This week, that timing was significantly changed

“Get red, wild and blue, America!” There’s a new trailer for Sarah Palin’s Amazing America reality show on the Sportsman Channel and it is way more insane than you ever thought it could be. The show released a teaser video last month, but it just consisted of Palin’s silhouette over an full screen American flag and quotes about how awesome she was. This time, we get actual footage from the show, and it looks… incredibly goofy. Now, it’s not that I thought Amazing America was going to be some introspective TV version of NPR’s This American Life with the former Alaska governor

First lady Michelle Obama will not take questions from reporters or give interviews during her tour of China that begins today, and members of the press corps who usually follows the first family everywhere have been banned from the trip. The resulting picture is one of an expensive, taxpayer-funded vacation for Mrs. Obama, her two daughters, and her mother – and not the official good-will journey the White House has promised. White House press officials won´t comment to MailOnline about whether the ban on media interviews applies equally to American journalists and Chinese reporters. ´How does this comport with the
