Having insisted for the past two weeks that military strikes are the only appropriate response to the Syrian regime’s use of chemical weapons against its own people, the Obama administration muddled its message today by entertaining the possibility of a non-military solution to the crisis. Asked at a press conference in London this morning whether there was anything Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad could do to avert a U.S. attack, Secretary of State John Kerry said ”he could turn over every single bit of his chemical weapons to the international community in the next week.” Russia and Syria seized on the remark and

America is a lucky country. Let´s hope this works out for the best, even if Zero does shout "look what I found!" from right field when the ball lands in his mit while he is shielding his eyes.

It was pointed out last night by some talk show guest, that Putin out smarted Zero with this move from Kerry. Now, the only way to keep this agreement alive is not to oust Assad, but in fact, to make sure he stays in power. Cha-ching.

Ha, ha, Lurch thinks he´s more intelligent than the ´won´. The hildabeast is sharing her lunch box with these two as well. What an embarrassment and now Boehner and his sidekick are trying to pull a fast one with their little trick on ´defunding´ obamacare. Daily the DC crowd is getting more pathetic. In addition these two are trying to get backing for the two idiots standing on the soap box.

This concept of a limited strike is fantasy! I wonder if Japan sat around a table and discussed conducting a "limited military strike" against the United States in Hawaii. No country is going to consider being bombed as an international spanking.

Make no mistake about it, if this mess doesn´t cool down, and congress is asked to vote on this, it is not a vote to bolster our reputation and respect in the world. They are voting on whether or not to START WWIII.

If you want to start WWIII you need to start it in Iran and identify your enemy as radical Islam. Then get ready for Russia to jump in and China to cut off our line of credit and Israel to be on the receiving end of the entire arsenal of the middle east. Also you need to be ready for the fight to come to your neighborhood from any number of gas stations and convenience stores in your city.

Obama running this country is like a drunk putting his foot on the floor to stop the room from spinning.I think he´s really become self isolated with a small handful of advisers left who all think the same way.No one decent will work for him because VJ gets the last word on everythng so their input is mute and moot.As long as he has 45% or so suport,he´ll keep on with this downward spiral.The really sad part is the people who make this country work are the most punished by the bizzaro world president.

The MusBros rebels aren´t going to like this. They were planning to launch a big attack to coincide with the Obama strike. If Obama is in cahoots with the MusBros in any way they have that to use as blackmail and insist Obama get into the fray with strikes. Obama will have to find a way to stop Assad from simply agreeing to put his WMD under international control. My guess, he´ll insist Assad live up to Kerry´s off hand remark and hand over all his WMD plus submit his country to inspection which comes close to surrender. I hope I´m wrong because this would be a good out for everybody.

You think Putin is pulling a "rope-a-dope" but then you remember Obama´s famous open-mic gaffe to Medvedev, “After my election, I have more flexibility.” So, once again, you just have to wonder, is all of this by design? Is he purposefully allowing Putin to run the show? Remember, Obama´s agenda is to bring America down a few notches, to make us like every other nation.

You get the sense that Obama would love nothing better than to "lead" from behind here and allow Putin to provide the leadership and find an alternative solution to war.

Brilliant deplomatic move by Putin. Assad stays in power. The nasty weapons are removed. US military action is averted. Rewarded for his "historic" decision to turnover his chemical weapons, the Russians feel free to arm Assad sufficiently to ensure defeat of the rebels. If the US continues to arm the rebels it will simply prolong the death and destruction and make the US look really bad. The jig is up for the community organizer pretending to be president.

It is sickening to read the spin this morning that Barry´s courage and firmness forced Putin and Assad to back down and put the chem weapons under UN supervision. They are already spiking the ball when in truth it was Putin that was the adult giving the childish Obama a way out and saving everyone from a destructive war. Now Obama pretends he was strong and Putin weak. No Putin was the adult and Obama the narcissist child as always. Thanks Vladimir!

Sadly, it is at this juncture in history because of the actions of our foolish and vain president that the United States has relinquished its superpower status to Russia. Putin pawned the neophyte Obama and by doing so gained the upper hand in a situation totally of Obama´s making. Obama has diminished the reputation of this country and has undone everything Ronald Reagan accomplished. Russia is in the catbird seat now.

You could see it in dopey Kerry´s face, when he suggested that an attack could be forestalled by turning over all WMD. As usual, he was far more concerned with his stentorian tone than with the content of his words. Putin jumped all over Kerry´s blunder, avoiding the strike, and preserving the Assad regime. It´s over. Putin has schooled 0 again!

Boy is this going to embolden the rebels. Has anyone in authority demanded they turn in their gas supplies. Of course not, they can continue to execute prisoners or gas people and claim the government still has WMD´s and are still using them, Of course they are just protecting themselves.

The mad bomber in DC continues on his mission to destroy this once great country. Kerry of course is a proven dunce.

Considering Obama´s record on the leaders of the other Middle East countries, we would be naive to think he isn´t for Syria regime change. This new development might sound wonderful, end of story and oh so peaceful but Obama will keep moving the goal posts. Just watch. Wonder if anyone in Obama´s administration is embarrassed about their ineptitude, crazy out-loud reasoning? Amateurs all.

To stop the war making ability of Assad all we have to do is send Obama´s economic advisors over there and the force ObamaCare on them just like he did us and within 6 weeks they will be so broke they won´t be able to cause trouble for anyone.

America finds itself stuck with a teleprompter puppet here, and his cabal of covert communist controllers, at the last minute, left with no other choice but to listen to an openly communist dictator over there, who unilaterally decides the poison Maguffin cans will be put into the possession of an international committee over there (that is also communist controlled). “This is a fine mess you’ve got us into, Ollie.” If there was ever an opportune time to bring back the (main stream press) forbidden subject of the birth certificate, now is the time to bring it back under a new working title: “treasonous forgery”. Ultimately, this is the most compelling, urgent question of our time. Is there a criminally forged document that is allowing an imposter to impersonate our highest office?
Talk about the shell game of both centuries!

Depending upon what the Obama administration´s objectives are, and to what extent Putin is in on it, the Obama folks may be playing it very well indeed. Beware of articles written by journalists who have never negotiated a business deal, and who have never sent in different people to insist on seemingly conflicting terms to keep the other side off balance and guessing. They don´t have a clue.

Zugzwang is the chess term describing a situation where a player is disadvantaged simply by having to make a move, because any legal move only weakens his or her position.

Putin just let Obama pass his turn. In the process, Obama went from seriously disadvantaged to downright pathetic. Next, Kerry will advise him to sacrifice his king in order to appear nuanced and above the fray.

Russia will use all this to extend the matter of gathering up the Syrian chemical weapons until the cows come home. They may be still working on it long after Obama finishes his term in office and is off to give speeches and play golf every day. Assad will surrender just enough chemical weapons to keep the international big wigs happy, and will keep the rest that we don´t know about, might even hide some in Iraq and will probably remain in power to facilitate his side of the civil war for years. For about the last 1,400 years there has been off and on wars throughout the Middle East and that not not about to change, no matter the content of the flowery speeches that Obama reads from his teleprompter from time to time.

Putin handed him the script for his part in the closed door 20 minute meeting at G20.

The frontman for all the flower children change-the-world socialist theorists (just why can´t we see the college work and theses of obummer and Hitlary), the media thought Mitt´s religious underwear and private religious rites to be more relevant and what the public needed/wanted to know?

The dumb socialists never add the caveat that when the "people" kill the dictators, the commies make a new elite band of people oppressors and redistributers of wealth--distribute right into the coffers and purses of the elite leading/power class.

Socialists not so blood thirsty as the commies but both make slaves of the people they liberate from the evil capitalistic democracies. IMO.

Exactly forty years ago Patricia Hearst stunned the nation when she turned up as a bank robber, a mere two months after she was kidnapped by the violent cult that called itself “The Symbionese Liberation Army.” Her astonishing transformation was documented by bank cameras on April 15, 1974. There she was — granddaughter of William Randolph “Citizen Kane” Hearst — wielding a sawed-off assault rifle and terrorizing people in a bank. She had recently announced in a taped SLA communique that she had voluntarily joined the SLA in its fight against the “fascist” United States. She took the nom de

A few years ago, the corruption convictions of several prominent plaintiffs´ lawyers put a spotlight on dishonesty in American civil courts. Now the sleaze has burst back into the news with cases involving Chevron and Dole Food Co., this time with an international twist. Last month, a federal court in Manhattan found that a U.S. plaintiffs´ lawyer had masterminded a multibillion dollar fraud and extortion scheme against Chevron in Ecuador. Three days later, a California appellate court affirmed the dismissal of a lawsuit against Dole as a "fraud on the court" perpetrated by U.S. and Nicaraguan plaintiffs´ lawyers.

On Monday, David Philipps, an investigative reporter for the Colorado Springs Gazette, claimed a Pulitzer for his three-day series, Other Than Honorable.

Four years after Obamacare became law, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is notifying Medicare providers and suppliers of new fingerprint-based background checks. Eventually, all individuals who hold a five percent or greater stake in a Medicare supplier or provider that is categorized as "high risk" will be subject to the requirement. The provision is part of the Medicare, Medicaid, and CHIP Program Integrity Provisions (Title E) of the Affordable Care Act, and gives the HHS secretary broad discretion in applying the background check requirements depending on the potential for abuse, fraud, and/or waste. The new requirements are spelled

The Obama administration is just fraud all the way down. U.S. President Barack Obama’s administration is concerned that a crucial United Nations report on climate science may be too harsh in assessing the cost of fighting global warming. Such a finding may lower the incentive for the world to reduce fossil fuel pollution and feed the arguments of those skeptical about whether it’s worth spending money to curtail rising temperatures. Global temperatures haven’t risen in 15 years, but never mind that. Pay no attention to the Sun’s role in our climate. The UN report is set for release next week. Plenty of time to

A Texas man was sentenced yesterday to 18 months in state prison for urinating on the Alamo. Daniel Athens, a 23-year-old El Paso resident, pleaded guilty earlier this year to a criminal mischief charge in connection with the April 2012 incident at the Texas shrine. While Athens could have faced a maximum of two years in custody, a plea deal saved him up to six months in custody. Athens was also ordered to pay $4000 in restitution by District Judge Ray Olivarri. Since Athens is not eligible for parole, he will have to serve the entirety of his 18-month sentence. As detailed

Republicans, let´s get it over with. Fast forward to the finish line. Avoid the long and winding primary road. It can only weaken the nominee. And we know who he—yes, he—has to be. Not Jeb Bush, who plainly is unsuited to be president. He is insufficiently hostile to Mexicans. He holds heretical views on the Common Core, which, as we well know, is the defining issue of our time. And he´s a Bush. Another installment of a political dynasty just isn´t going to fly with the American people, who want some fresh blood in their politics. Unless the dynasty is

When I first started hearing people on the political left describe themselves with some frequency as progressive back in the 1990s, the term did not seem tethered to the epoch-defining, early-20th-century spasm of moral crusading and government centralization that helped give us everything from trust busting to Prohibition to the Federal Reserve. As articulated by champions like Ralph Nader and Molly Ivins, the progressive label was both a way to get out from under the generation-old baggage of liberal-a term Ronald Reagan and others had turned into an epithet-and to differentiate lefties from seemingly apologetic triangulators like Bill Clinton and

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

President Obama pulled a surprise move Monday at the White House’s Easter Prayer Breakfast when he selected Gene Robinson to lead the closing prayer. Robinson is famously known as the first openly gay Episcopal bishop. Talking Points Memo’s Tom Kludt spotted the following tweet from Robinson, who was in attendance: (Tweet) Robinson, 66, became diocesan bishop of New Hampshire in March 2004. He retired in January 2013 and is currently a senior fellow at the progressive
