Hypocrisy, thy name
is John Kerry
American Thinker, by Ethel C. Fenig    Original Article
Posted By: magnante- 2/21/2014 8:42:59 AM     Post Reply
Fleeing his failed diplomatic Middle East efforts, noted nonscientist Secretary of State John Kerry flitted off to Indonesia where he exuded hot air bloviating about (hu)man caused climate change as a weapon of mass destruction as noted here earlier. However, by Kerry´s reasoning, the ongoing slaughter in Syria is nothing compared to Kerry´s own contribution to manmade climate change/worse than any weapon of mass destruction, blah, blah, blah. How so? John Kerry is not a flappy bird moving from place to place under his own power. So how does he get around? Why, by planes. Big ones.

GOP Leaders Won´t Escape
Conservative Voters´ Wrath

Oh, lookie, Speaker John Boehner and his dimwits have decided that riling up the party´s base over immigration reform isn´t so smart after all, not in an election year. Instead, the speaker and his dwarves will seek to "calm" a divided party, or so reported the Washington Post on Monday. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is all-in for the soothing music and back rubs approach for aggravated Tea Party patriots and grassroots conservatives. But it won´t work. Boehner´s little stunt -- pushing Paul Ryan´s immigration cave-in -- at the Stupid Party´s retreat at Williamsburg in January has only highlighted the need

Climate Parasites: The Answer
to ´Climate Change Deniers´

It is a basic principle of psychological warfare that the side that controls the language of the argument controls the argument. Barack Obama´s own website is using this PsyWar technique by calling opponents of his cap and trade agenda "climate change deniers." (snip) The name "climate parasites" performs two jobs with exactly two words. It derails completely the enemy´s position that our side consists of people who are totally ignorant of climate science, or choose to ignore it. We acknowledge without hesitation that climate change is a proven fact of nature. The name also, however, marginalizes the other side by

You have been subsidizing the efforts of radical left-wing community organizers for years, and you probably didn´t even know it. Fifty years ago as Barack Hussein Obama inhaled the values of his communist parents, grandparents, and mentors, their comrades were drafting plans to destroy American civil society. Armed with your parents´ and grandparents´ tax dollars, America-hating extremists Richard Cloward, Frances Fox Piven, and Saul Alinsky were hard at work in the 1960s laying the foundation to wreak havoc on America and its people in an effort to force revolutionary change. Progressive agitators´ quest to obliterate economic freedom was aided by the "War on

During a week in which a massive snowstorm delivered a one-two punch to much of the nation, a tiny avalanche of rulings and calculated legislative maneuvers thundered down from courts and statehouses across the country. Kentucky: A judge ruled that the state must recognize same sex marriages from other states, even though Kentucky has a same sex marriage ban in place. Virginia: A judge overturned that state´s same sex marriage ban, which went undefended by the state´s new attorney general. New Mexico: The state´s attorney general has announced he will not defend his state´s prohibition on same sex marriage. Indiana: The State Senate, despite

The funniest, most satisfying read of the day has to be Zombie´s delightful takedown of an attempt by feminists to hijack Valentine´s Day and turn it into a celebration of victimology. On February 14, Vagina Monologues author Eve Ensler had earlier decreed something called V-Day, a "rape-themed anti-holiday," but once the novelty wore off, came up with the new, improved 1 Billion Rising day. As Zombie put it in her article .00001 Billion Rising: Another Failed Mass Movement: The thesis behind 1 Billion Rising is that if the world´s one billion rape victims all rose up en masse and danced every

Dear Leader Barack Hussein Obama, during a visit to Monticello on Monday, February 10, said, "That´s the good thing as a President, I can do whatever I want." That statement, made to French President Francois Hollande and Monticello Foundation president Leslie Bowman, was presumably a joke. Key word: presumably. With Obama, you never can tell. Obama´s own recent statements suggest that what he said at Monticello is what he truly feels. Speaking to House Democrats on Saturday, February 15, 2014, Obama said: I want to work with Congress to make that happen. But, I´m not going to wait, because there´s too much to

Inequality in America is a terrible thing, unless it results in a nice afternoon at a golf course so private that "uncrowded" does not begin to describe the solitude a presidential foursome can enjoy. Few things in this world are more unequally enjoyed than the luxury of a personal golf course. But our inequality-hating president found the time to enjoy one yesterday. (snip)The ultra-rich are not and never will be the real target of Democratic Party rants against inequality. Instead, they reserve their venom for the hard-working entrepreneurial and technical/professional classes who seek to rise from upper middle-class ranks into

UAW crashes in Volkswagen
unionization defeat

Posted By: magnante- 2/15/2014 8:26:19 AM     Post Reply
The United Auto Workers Union lost a hugely important unionization election vote at Volkswagen´s Chattanooga, Tennessee assembly plant, going down to defeat in a 712-626 vote (53%-47%), with roughly 165 workers, or 11%, not voting. Thus, in fact, only 41.65% of the total workforce voted in favor of unionization. This is a historic defeat for unionization of the private sector (snip)The American union movement is now even more solidly a government employee phenomenon, which makes it all the more vulnerable to public opinion which is shifting to a negative opinion towards it, as self-serving and greedy.

TOLUCA, Mexico — President Barack Obama says "there will be consequences" for violence in Ukraine if people step over the line. He says that includes making sure that the military doesn´t step into a situation that civilians should resolve. Obama says the U.S. condemns the violence in the strongest terms. He says the U.S. holds Ukraine´s government primarily responsible to ensure it´s dealing with peaceful protesters appropriately.

Sarah Palin has made an endorsement in Texas. She’s backing tea party leader Katrina Pierson over Rep. Pete Sessions. In a Facebook post, Palin notes that Pierson’s “life’s story is full of hardships she has fought to overcome, which taught her firsthand the importance of self-reliance, hard work, and the blessings of liberty.” One of those hardships includes a 1997 arrest for shoplifting. As the Dallas Morning News reported on Valentine’s Day, “In 1997, five days before her 21st birthday, Katrina Pierson, then named Katrina Lanette Shaddix, was arrested on a charge of theft of greater than $50 and less than $500.” Pierson,

WASHINGTON, D.C., February 17, 2014 – President Barack Obama has elevated the right to have sex with a member of the same sex to the level of universal “fundamental freedoms” in a new presidential statement criticizing Uganda. But critics say his promotion of homosexuality in a continent that overwhelmingly opposes that behavior amounts to a form of liberal “cultural imperialism.” Obama wrote on Sunday that he opposed a proposed bill in Uganda that would criminalize same-sex “marriages” and impose life imprisonment for repeated homosexual acts, among other provisions, because “as a country and a people, the United States has consistently

Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnel (R-Ky.) are now in position to end the Tea Party’s death grip on the Republican Party’s political future. Last week, Boehner and McConnell faced down the Tea Party’s threat to cripple the government when they supported raising the nation’s debt ceiling. That move prevented GOP political suicide. If the nation’s credit rating, stocks and the recovery went down the sewer because of Republicans’ refusal to raise the debt ceiling, the GOP’s chances in the midterm elections would have been severely damaged. Having successfully defied the Tea Party on the debt ceiling, now

Raising the minimum wage to $10.10 by 2016 will help "people who just want to work hard," but it also will help those who want to "work less," White House economic adviser Gene Sperling told MSNBC´s "Morning Joe" on Wednesday. He argued that Americans support raising the minimum wage because it will lift "struggling" families out of poverty: "But they also know what it´s like to see a friend, a neighbor, where one spouse goes back to work, who would prefer maybe not to work. Maybe they´re working part-time just to supplement the family´s income. And they think, if that

How much more are black people in this country supposed to take? On Saturday, a Florida jury failed to convict Michael Dunn for the callous murder of Jordan Davis. Though he was convicted of three counts of attempted murder and also on a gun charge, a mistrial was declared for the first-degree murder charge. He will face substantial jail time – perhaps up to 75 years on the four charges for which he was found guilty. Prosecutor Angela Corey has also publicly declared her intent to seek retrial on the murder conviction. However, she is the same prosecutor who oversaw the Zimmerman

Listening to pundits talk about the potential 2016 Republican field, you’d be forgiven for forgetting about Rick Santorum. The former senator’s strong second-place showing in 2012 shocked—even scared—the GOP’s kingmakers, who saw in him an abortion-hating firebrand with no chance of beating Barack Obama. So it’s no surprise that today, the party’s mainstreamers are acting like he’s old news, again dismissing a Santorum presidential candidacy. Not that he cares. He’s too busy plotting another possible run at the White House. In recent months, Santorum has gathered his inner circle of longtime advisers to sketch out a presidential campaign. He’s scheduling trips to

As American voters watch ObamaCare continue its Godzilla-like rampage across the national health-care landscape, it´s worth considering the collateral damage this political monster may be doing to the Democratic brand itself. What if ObamaCare´s problems become a metaphor for the modern Democratic Party? Two portents emerged the past week. The United Auto Workers suffered a humiliating defeat at Volkswagen VOW3.XE -0.49% in Tennessee. And days before that loss, voters San Diego elected Republican Kevin Faulconer mayor after he teed up his opponent as a captive of the city´s public unions. Two big constituencies sacked in a week.

He will be sitting down with business leaders to discuss a wide range of issues, according to Bob Haus, an adviser in the state.

WASHINGTON — Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, a possible GOP contender for the White House, has blasted President Obama for apologizing to an art historian after questioning the job prospects of art-history majors. “Pathetic Obama apology to art history prof. We do need more degrees that lead to #jobs,” Rubio tweeted Wednesday. On Tuesday, it was revealed that Obama sent a handwritten apology to University of Texas art professor Ann Collins Johns for remarks he made at a GE factory in Wisconsin suggesting students were better off studying subjects more likely to land them jobs than studying art history.
