The credibility crisis can’t be
solved with Tomahawk missiles

Hot Air, by Ed Morrissey

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 9/6/2013 4:54:26 AM

The Obama administration has stumbled from one credibility crisis to the next on Syria, and now wants Congress to rescue Barack Obama from himself. Obama declares that the stated policy of the United States toward Syria is regime change, then dithers on how to effect it. Obama draws a red line, and then does nothing at all to prepare for the possibility that Bashar al-Assad might call his bluff. This credibility crisis goes beyond Syria, however, and extends to the whole Arab Spring, for which Obama seemed all too pleased to take credit not terribly long ago. He demanded Hosni Mubarak’s

George Zimmerman’s wife files for divorce
MyFoxOrlando [FL], by Stuart Campbell    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 9/5/2013 5:25:53 PM     Post Reply
Robert Zimmerman, Jr tells FOX 35 that Shellie Zimmerman has filed for divorce from husband George Zimmerman. Questions over whether the two were parting ways surfaced after Shellie pleaded guilty last week to a perjury charge for lying during a bail hearing after her husband´s arrest. Prosecutors said she lied about the couple´s assets following her husband´s arrest for the fatal 2012 shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. George, who was acquitted of second-degree murder this summer, was not present for the hearing at which Shellie was sentenced to a year´s probation and 100 hours of community service. There had been speculation that the

SACRAMENTO, CALIF. A gigantic wildfire in and around Yosemite National Park was caused by an illegal fire set by a hunter, the U.S. Forest Service said Thursday. The agency said there is no indication the hunter was involved with illegal marijuana cultivation, which a local fire chief had speculated as the possible cause of the blaze. No arrests have been made, and the hunter´s name was being withheld pending further investigation, according to the Forest Service. The only legal hunting allowed at the time the fire started Aug. 17 was archery for bear and deer. A Forest Service statement gave no details

Was Mitt Romney Right
About Everything?

Ten months after Mitt Romney shuffled off the national stage in defeat — consigned, many predicted, to a fate of instant irrelevance and permanent obscurity — Republicans are suddenly celebrating the presidential also-ran as a political prophet. From his widely mocked warnings about a hostile Russia to his adamant opposition to the increasingly unpopular implementation of Obamacare, the ex-candidate’s canon of campaign rhetoric now offers cause for vindication — and remorse — to Romney’s friends, supporters, and former advisers. “I think about the campaign every single day, and what a shame it is who we have in the White House,”

Obama Bets the House

Facing the prospect of waging war against Syria unilaterally, President Obama belatedly gambled that Congress could give him some political cover for a risky decision. He´s not likely to get it, based on the initial reaction from House members from both parties. Despite the show of support from House Speaker John Boehner and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi on Tuesday afternoon, that´s not going to move many votes. Neither is putting any pressure on their members to vote for a military strike against Syria despite their personal support. Both are calling it a vote of conscience and aren´t urging members to

While President Obama was publicly celebrating the anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech last week, his administration took action behind the scenes in Louisiana that was a complete rejection of King’s dream. The Justice Department has challenged our state in court for having the temerity to start a scholarship program that frees low-income minority children from failing schools. In other words, Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder would rip children out of their schools and handcuff them to the failing schools they previously attended. And, in the ultimate irony, they are using desegregation orders set up

   

 

  


 
Could Client #9 end

Less than a month ago, Jazz Shaw wondered whether Client #9 could be stopped. Eliot Spitzer had a 17-point lead over Scott Stringer in the New York City Democratic primary race for comptroller and presumably a clear path to a political comeback. In just three weeks, though, his nineteen-point lead over Stringer (56/37) in the Quinnipiac poll series has flipped to a 45/47 deficit — a change of 21 points in the gap in nearly as many days: The Democratic primary for New York City Comptroller is too close to call, with 47 percent of likely primary voters for Manhattan

U.S. forces in the Middle East tasked with carrying out military action against Syria were ready to go this past weekend and were caught off guard by President Barack Obama´s decision to first seek congressional approval. Navy destroyers in the eastern Mediterranean equipped with cruise missiles had ramped up operations from the previous week, thinking they would be ordered to launch a strike as early as Saturday. "I thought that was the night," a Defense Department official told CNN. "We were standing multiple watches. Everyone was pretty sure it was going to happen," the official added. He said the sudden change in direction from

House Republicans Expected to
Reform Food Stamps Program
Weekly Standard, by Ryan Lovelace    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 9/5/2013 10:01:22 AM     Post Reply
The federal government paid more than $74.6 billion last year to provide 46.6 millions Americans with food stamps. This is an astonishing increase, even for this era of rapidly rising federal spending. Four years earlier the comparable figures were $34.6 billion in benefits for 28.2 million recipients. Thus the impetus behind majority leader Eric Cantor’s (R-Va.) effort to reform food stamps (aka the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) in the House this fall. Food stamps have been part of the farm bill for almost an entire half-century. But House Republicans stripped the food stamp program out when they passed the farm

Obama struggles to convince

President Obama is struggling to convince lawmakers, foreign leaders and the public that military action in Syria isn’t about him. Opponents of a military intervention in Syria say the president is trying to save face after declaring the use of chemical weapons a “red line” that should not be crossed. The idea that Obama’s motives are political is taking hold on both the left and right, underscoring the challenge he faces in securing support for a risky military venture abroad. “It sounds to me like saving face because he has made a promise, so he is going to follow through

John Kerry’s Bright Shining Lie
American Spectator, by Jeffrey Lord    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 9/5/2013 6:17:40 AM     Post Reply
There is a God. Or, put another way, what goes round…comes round. The suddenly furious debate over Syria has two very blunt problems. Lying. And telling the hard truth. The latter also known as Iran. Let’s deal first with what can only be called John Kerry’s problems with what might be called a “Bright Shining Lie.” “Bush Lied” was a lie. No matter. The anti-war left sold this leftist lie like corn flakes…and they had lots of help. And one of the people who recklessly helped sell the notion that “Bush Lied” was his 2004 Democratic opponent — John Kerry. And another? Barack Obama.

There was truth to President Obama’s assertion that his credibility is not on the line in punishing Syria chemical weapons use — because he had already squandered virtually all of that vital commodity on the issue. Credibility demands clarity and constancy. Obama has shown neither quality since declaring, casually, almost haphazardly, a year ago that Bashar Assad would cross a “red line” by gassing his people. The President’s subsequent dodges and feints culminated, after Assad murdered more than 1,400 people, in the strongest signals possible that he was about to order a military strike — followed by an abrupt reversal and

There is a sea change occurring in America fifty years after MLK Jr.´s "I Have a Dream" speech. This paradigm shift is spreading with the growing realization among our citizens that Black America (including our president) seems to hate Non-Black America. Temper this sweeping statement with the fact that blacks in America may genuinely like non-black individuals, just as whites in 1850 who believed blacks were a lower form of life still knew individual black men they respected for their particular talents and/or character.

St. Petersburg, Russia -- President Barack Obama on Wednesday declared the world’s credibility “is on the line” when it comes to punishing Syrian President Bashar Assad for his regime’s purported use of chemical weapons. Speaking at a press conference in Stockholm, Sweden, ahead of a global economic summit in Russia where he will seek to rally support for a U.S. military strike against Syria, Obama said the “red line” he set against a year ago against Syria’s use of chemical weapons isn’t his, but an international standard. “I didn’t set a red line, the world set a red line,” Obama

That is Sarah Palin´s succinct argument against U.S. intervention into Syria. And I have to be honest: I´m impressed with Palin on this one. Not with her horribly callous recommendation, made via Facebook late last week, but because she appears to speak some Arabic. I´m not saying Palin is fluent in the language, but she did use the Arabic word "Allah." She could´ve simply used the word "God" instead of Allah since it has the identical meaning. (Christian Arabs use the word Allah when speaking of God in Arabic.)

HAGERSTOWN, Md. – Army Pvt. Chelsea Manning is seeking a presidential pardon for leaking reams of classified information that her lawyer says did not merit protection. The Pvt. Manning Support Network released documents Wednesday that defense attorney David Coombs filed a day earlier with the U.S. Justice Department and the Department of the Army. Manning, previously known as Bradley Manning, has declared her desire to live as a woman while serving a 35-year prison sentence at Fort Leavenworth, Kan. In her petition for pardon and commutation of sentence, Manning writes: "The decisions I made in 2010 were made out of

Secretary of State John Kerry said at Wednesday’s hearing that Arab counties have offered to pay for the entirety of unseating President Bashar al-Assad if the United States took the lead militarily. “With respect to Arab countries offering to bear costs and to assess, the answer is profoundly yes,” Kerry said. “They have. That offer is on the table.” Asked by Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla.) about how much those countries would contribute, Kerry said they have offered to pay for all of a full invasion.

A new study of images apparently from the Syrian attack last month concludes that the rockets delivering toxic sarin gas to neighborhoods around Damascus held up to 50 times more nerve agent than previously estimated, a conclusion that could solve the mystery of why there were so many more victims than in previous chemical attacks. The Times is providing updates, analysis and public reaction from around the world. The study, by leading weapons experts, also strongly suggests that the mass of toxic material could have come only from a large stockpile. American, British and French officials have charged that only

BERLIN — Russia has released a 100-page report detailing what it says is evidence that Syrian rebels, not forces loyal to President Bashar Assad, were behind a deadly sarin gas attack in an Aleppo suburb earlier this year. The report, which includes numerous tables and charts said to chronicle the scientific analysis of samples reportedly taken from the site of the attack, was posted on the Russian Foreign Ministry’s website late Wednesday. Russian officials said the report had been delivered to the United Nations in July. Russia said its investigation of the March 19 incident was conducted under strict protocols established

President Bill Clinton has been telling everyone he is a vegan since 2009, but it turns out Clinton’s a liar. The former president, who has been enlisted to sell the nation on Obamacare, told reporters that he was joining his daughter, Chelsea, in an all vegan diet after he had had heart trouble. He was even named PETA’s person of the year in 2010. But in a recent interview with AARP, Clinton said he ate salmon and omelets once a week. “Once a week or so, [Clinton] will have a helping of organic salmon or an omelet made with omega-3-fortified eggs,

MOSCOW--Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday the U.S. Congress had no right to approve the use of force against Syria without a decision from the U.N. Security Council, and that doing so would be an "act of aggression".(Snip)"They lie beautifully, of course. I saw debates in Congress. A congressman asks Mr Kerry: ´Is al Qaeda there?´ He says: ´No, I am telling you responsibly that it is not´," Putin said at a meeting of his human rights council in the Kremlin. "Al Qaeda units are the main military echelon, and they know this," he said, referring to the United States.
