Newsbusters, by Jack Coleman Posted By: JoniTx- Mon, 25 55 2015 07:55:59 GMT Such are the perils of playing by the rules against people who don´t. An interesting discussion this morning on CNN´s Reliable Sources between host Brian Stelter and Washington Free Beacon editor'in'chief Matthew Continetti about ABC News attempting to sabotage the Beacon´s scoop on George Stephanopoulos´s $75,000 in donations to the vast money'laundering operation otherwise known as the Clinton Global Foundation. Stephanopoulos, host of ABC´s Sunday morning political talk show This Week and co'anchor of the network´s Good Morning America program, was a campaign spokesman and strategist when Bill Clinton defeated President George H.W.

Associated Press, by Rachel Zoll Posted By: Harlowe- Mon, 25 56 2015 05:56:30 GMT NEW YORK ' There will be prayer vigils and pilgrimages, policy briefings and seminars, and sermons in parishes from the U.S. to the Philippines. When Pope Francis releases his much'anticipated teaching document on the environment and climate change in the coming weeks, a network of Roman Catholics will be ready.

Breitbart Big Government, by David Webb Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- Mon, 25 00 2015 05:00:27 GMT The easiest way to pay a debt of gratitude is with respect and commemoration. On Memorial Day, remember to pause for a minute of silent honor at 3 PM, local time. Memorial Day is still officially known as Decoration Day. It is a day to remember those who have died in all of our wars. There are many commemorations across America and in our territories. Do most Americans really know and act appropriately on Memorial Day — or has it just become the unofficial start of summer? One man, Paul Monti, father of SFC Jared Monti, the first recipient of the Congressional Medal of Honor posthumously for his heroism in Afghanistan

Carly Fiorina Talks, Iowa Swoons, as Polls Shrug

Lucianne.com - 20 hours 12 min ago
New York Times, by Amy Chozick & Trip Gabriel Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- Mon, 25 46 2015 04:46:58 GMT Des Moines - After 11 Republican presidential contenders spoke to a huge gathering of Iowa party activists at the Lincoln Day Dinner this month, they moved to hospitality suites to greet people one on one. (Snip) But the line to meet one candidate, Carly Fiorina, a former Silicon Valley executive whose name recognition is negligible among voters, snaked down the hallway. For more than an hour, Iowans filed into the suite for their chance to meet Ms. Fiorina. Ms. Fiorina, a former chief executive at Hewlett-Packard with a flair for biting one-liners, had just delivered a speech that included references to God and a joke about

New York Times, by Brian X. Chen Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- Mon, 25 33 2015 04:33:11 GMT San Francisco - Every night, Aaron Melocik, a software developer, follows a precise food routine. He blends together half a gallon of water, three and a half tablespoons of macadamia nut oil and a 16-ounce bag of powder called Schmoylent. Then he pours the beige beverage into jars and chills them before bringing the containers to work the next day at Metrodigi, an education technology start-up. (Snip) Boom times in Silicon Valley call for hard work, and hard work — at least in technology land — means that coders, engineers and venture capitalists are turning to liquid meals with names like Schmoylent, Soylent, Schmilk and

Ohio Gov. John Kasich praises peaceful protests in Cleveland following cop acquittal

Lucianne.com - 20 hours 12 min ago
Washington Times, by Tom Howell Jr. Posted By: Dreadnought- Mon, 25 33 2015 03:33:10 GMT Ohio’s leaders on Sunday praised Cleveland as a “model” for peaceful protest after a white officer’s acquittal Saturday in the 2012 deaths of two unarmed black motorists reignited the debate over law enforcement and deadly force, though tensions remained high as leaders alternated between pleas for calm and calls for police reform. Republican Gov. John Kasich commended weekend protesters for not resorting to the type of looting and destruction that marked racially tinged riots in Ferguson, Missouri, and Baltimore. “They should be so proud of themselves, and we should look at Cleveland as a model,” Mr. Kasich told ABC’s “This

Rolling Thunder: Vietnam veterans ride alongside post'9/11 generation

Washington Times, by Kellan Howell Posted By: Dreadnought- Mon, 25 29 2015 03:29:51 GMT The annual Rolling Thunder Ride for Freedom roared through Washington on Sunday, but organizers of the event that has become America’s largest single'day motorcycle rally are concerned their numbers may dwindle as Vietnam veterans, who form the backbone of the event, grow older. “It’s going to be interesting to see what we can really bring to the organization in the next five to 10 years,” said Artie Muller, executive director of Rolling Thunder Inc., the nonprofit foundation that sponsors the freedom ride. “Twenty years ago, we used to look at WWII vets like they were ancient history.

Washington Post, by Ian Shapira Posted By: Dreadnought- Mon, 25 22 2015 03:22:42 GMT MARGRATEN, Netherlands — They haven’t forgotten. For 70 years, the Dutch have come to a verdant U.S. cemetery outside this small village to care for the graves of Americans killed in World War II. On Sunday, they came again, bearing Memorial Day bouquets for men and women they never knew, but whose 8,300 headstones the people of the Netherlands have adopted as their own. For the American relatives of the fallen, it was an outpouring of gratitude almost as stunning as the rows of white marble crosses and Jewish Stars of David at the Netherlands American Cemetery. Each grave has

Gateway Pundit, by Jim Hoft Posted By: JoniTx- Mon, 25 53 2015 01:53:30 GMT ISIS reportedly slaughtered over 400 Syrian soldiers in Palmyra this week after the terrorists captured the ancient Roman city. Al'Arabiya reported: Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) fighters have executed at least 400 people in Palmyra since capturing the ancient Syrian city four days ago, Syrian state media said on Sunday. It was not immediately possible to verify the account, but it was consistent with reports by activists that the Islamist fighters had carried out executions since capturing the city from government troops. The militants seized the city of 50,000 people, site of some of the world’s most extensive

New York Daily News, by Adam Edelman Posted By: PageTurner- Mon, 25 44 2015 01:44:54 GMT Jeb Bush is going for Maine over Main Street. The all'but'certain 2016 candidate is having a huge house built for him at the Bush family compound at Walker’s Point, in Kennebunkport, Maine, the Boston Globe reported Sunday. The former Florida governor’s new home will be built on a 1.3'acre site worth at least $1.4 million, the Globe reported, and was ordered built by Bush’s parents, former President George H.W. Bush and former First Lady Barbara Bush. The 3,000 square'foot, 4'bedroom, 4.5'bathroom “cottage” is expected to have a gorgeous wraparound porch and feature panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean.

Agencia EFE [Madrid, Spain], by Staff Posted By: PageTurner- Mon, 25 40 2015 01:40:24 GMT The governing center'right Popular Party appears to have won the Spanish municipal elections ' both in votes and in councilmen elected ' with 99 percent of the vote counted, but a significant erosion of support has caused it to lose the absolute majority it had held in many cities. The PP has obtained 27.02 percent of the votes counted so far, a more than 10 percent decline from the 2011 elections. Meanwhile, the Spanish Socialist Workers Party, or PSOE, remains Spain´s second'largest political force, garnering 25.02 percent of the votes, some two'and'a'half percent below what it had achieved four years ago.

How Is “Liberation Theology” Still a Thing?

Lucianne.com - 20 hours 12 min ago
Power Line, by Steven Hayward Posted By: PageTurner- Mon, 25 28 2015 01:28:20 GMT The New York Times reports on the front page today Pope Francis’s revival of “liberation theology”—a radical creed from the 1970s and 1980s that at the time I summarized as “Marxism with salsa.” Quoth the Times: [Pope Francis] is directly engaging with a theological movement that once sharply divided Catholics and was distrusted by his predecessors, Pope John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI. . . Liberation theory includes a critique of the structural causes of poverty and a call for the church and the poor to organize for social change. Mr. Lee said it was a broad school of thought:

Sanders worries of ‘political gossip’ dominating campaign coverage

The Hill (Washington DC), by Devin Henry Posted By: JoniTx- Mon, 25 27 2015 01:27:35 GMT Sen. Bernie Sanders (I'Vt.) said on Sunday that the media is “doing pretty well” covering his campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination against frontrunner Hillary Clinton, but he’s worried about “political gossip” taking over as the campaign moves on. “We have gotten more serious discussion on our issues than I might have thought about,” Sanders said on CNN’s “Reliable Sources.” “But this is what I worry about: In terms of campaign coverage, there is more coverage about the political gossip of a campaign, about raising money, about polling, about somebody saying something dumb, or if some kid who works for

Great. Social media is exploding around the world. From the president to The Hill, from rock stars to foreign leaders to individual citizens who have something they want to say or want to respond to the ideas of others, social media is transforming the worlds of media and information. I hope those of you who read this will join millions of others and follow @POTUS, read what the president has

Hillary´s Real Benghazi Problem

Powerline, by John Hinderaker Posted By: Judy W.- Mon, 25 18 2015 01:18:57 GMT Yesterday the State Department released a handful of Hillary Clinton’s emails relating to Benghazi. (Snip) In my opinion, Hillary’s biggest problem isn’t Benghazi per se, it is the broader issue of Libya. Why were Ambassador Stevens and three other Americans murdered? Because by September 2012, Libya was a terrorist playground. Since then, things have only gotten worse. Libya has become a failed state, a 21st century source of boat people, as refugees from ubiquitous violence stream across the Mediterranean. Libya is now a haven for ISIS and other terrorist groups; it was on the Libyan coast that ISIS beheaded 30

Liberal Fox News Contributor: ‘The Illiberal Left’ Is Killing Free Speech [VIDEO]

Daily Caller (DC), by Ginni Thomas Posted By: JoniTx- Sun, 24 57 2015 11:57:33 GMT Under attack for her new book, “The Silencing: How the Left is Killing Free Speech,” Kirsten Powers, the USA Today columnist and Fox News contributor, may be the most recent canary in the coal mine warning America of a toxic influence on civility. Powers’s book highlights her research on the increasing number of incidents of intimidation of political opponents who challenge the liberal orthodoxy in America. As a liberal herself, she condemns “the illiberal left.” As someone who leans towards the Elizabeth Warren political worldview, Powers says, “it’s hard to go against your tribe,” as hostile, vicious reactions have now

Clinton inevitable? Really?

Lucianne.com - 20 hours 12 min ago
Miami Herald, by Editorial Posted By: garnet- Sun, 24 00 2015 11:00:20 GMT The aura of inevitability in which Hillary Clinton basked for so long has smacked up against the reality of the rough'and'tumble of a presidential campaign. And both she and the Democratic Party are worse off. She deigned to speak at length to the media last week after about a month of giving reporters, and the public she seeks to represent, the silent treatment. At a time when Republican wannabes are grabbing every microphone, gabbing at length to differentiate themselves from each other, Mrs. Clinton, until last week, had taken another, less winning approach. Really, the Republican campaign so far, with its cast

Clinton´s Compulsive Speechifying

Washington Post Writers Group, by Ruth Marcus Posted By: garnet- Sun, 24 52 2015 10:52:42 GMT Again with the speeches. The gross excessiveness of it all, vacuuming up six-figure checks well past the point of rational need or political seemliness. The ceaseless drip of information that ought to have already been released, now being presented with a self-serving back pat over transparency. I wasn´t planning to write, again, about Hillary Clinton´s compulsive speechifying. I already weighed in nearly a year ago urging her to stop talking. For money, that is. That unheeded advice came, by my accounting, some $6 million ago. Not including Bill Clinton´s speeches. Not including any speeches that Hillary Clinton made on behalf of
