Every Media Outlet: Hillary Grandkid the Most Consequential Baby Since Jesus

Lucianne.com - 59 sec ago
Mediaite, by Tina Nguyen Posted By: JoniTx- Fri, 18 34 2014 03:34:40 GMT Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

The Boston Herald, by Howie Carr Posted By: contrarian- Fri, 18 32 2014 03:32:24 GMT There is only one way to settle once and for all the question of whether the fake Indian is or is not a real Indian. She needs to take a DNA test. I dare you, Sen. Warren. It only costs about $200. If you insist, I’ll pay for it. In fact, I’ll take one myself. It’s easy. Just swab the inside of your mouth. Check my photo on the left, I’ll show you how to do it. No more of this fact-free nonsense about your “high cheekbones,”

Column one: The disappearance of US will

Jerusalem Post, by Caroline B. Glick Posted By: MDMuskrat- Fri, 18 31 2014 03:31:12 GMT The most terrifying aspect of the collapse of US power worldwide is the US’s indifferent response to it. In Europe, in Asia, in the Middle East and beyond, America’s most dangerous foes are engaging in aggression and brinkmanship unseen in decades. As Gordon Chang noted at a symposium in Los Angeles last month hosted by the David Horowitz Freedom Center, since President Barack Obama entered office in 2009, the Chinese have responded to his overtures of goodwill and appeasement with intensified aggression against the US’s Asian allies and against US warships.

Snowden: Putin Must Be Held Accountable for Surveillance Lies, Just Like Obama

Mediaite, by Andrew Kirell Posted By: JoniTx- Fri, 18 24 2014 03:24:17 GMT One day after making an audio appearance on RT to ask Vladimir Putin about Russian surveillance operations, National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden authored a Guardian column to clarify his intentions behind the question and push back on critics who suggest he was attempting to help whitewash the Russian president’s abuses. “Does Russia intercept, analyse or store millions of individuals’ communications?” Snowden asked Putin on Thursday, garnering a denial from Putin that included the statement: “We don’t have mass system of such interception. And according to our law it cannot exist.” Critics alleged that Snowden appeared in a scripted manner,

Does Traditional College Debate Reinforce White Privilege?

Lucianne.com - 59 sec ago
Atlantic, by Jessica Carew Kraft Posted By: Judy W.- Fri, 18 24 2014 03:24:08 GMT It used to be that if you went to a college'level debate tournament, the students you’d see would be bookish future lawyers from elite universities, most of them white. In matching navy blazers, they’d recite academic arguments for and against various government policies. It was tame, predictable, and, frankly, boring. No more. These days, an increasingly diverse group of participants has transformed debate competitions, mounting challenges to traditional form and content by incorporating personal experience, performance, and radical politics. These “alternative'style” debaters have achieved success, too, taking top honors at national collegiate tournaments over the past few years. But this transformation has also

New York Daily News/Wire Services, by Staff Posted By: JoniTx- Fri, 18 20 2014 03:20:46 GMT Police say a high school vice principal who had been rescued from a sinking South Korean ferry has been found hanging from a tree. The news of the death came Friday as rescuers scrambled to find hundreds of people still missing from the ferry and feared dead. The passengers included 325 second'year students from Danwon High School heading to a southern island on a four'day trip. The school vice principal found hanging Friday was identified as Kang Min'kyu, the lead guide for the school trip. No suicide note was found near the site, but Yonhap news agency reported that Kang

Jerusalem Post, by Sam Sokol Posted By: Judy W.- Fri, 18 30 2014 02:30:06 GMT Leaflets calling on Jews in the eastern Ukrainian city of Donetsk to register themselves with pro'Russian separatists may not be the work of the so'called Donetsk People’s Republic, Jewish groups have said. According to the World Jewish Congress, 17,000 Jews live in the city. The leaflets were handed out by several Balaclava clad men carrying a Russian flag earlier this week as well as being found plastered to buildings near a synagogue. They ordered all Jews aged 16 and older to register with the separatists, pay a $50 fee and report all motor vehicles and real estate in their possession. The flyers also said

Advice to Democrats: Don´t say ´recovery´

Lucianne.com - 59 sec ago
Associated Press, by David Espo Posted By: StormCnter- Fri, 18 15 2014 03:15:20 GMT WASHINGTON ' Election'year memo to Democratic candidates: Don´t talk about the economic recovery. It´s a political loser. So say Democratic strategists in a blunt declaration that such talk skips over "how much trouble people are in, and doesn´t convince them that policymakers really understand or are even focusing on the problems they continue to face." In addition, Stan Greenberg, James Carville and others wrote that in head'to'head polling tests the mere mention of the word "recovery" is trumped by a Republican assertion that the Obama administration has had six years to get the economy moving and its policies haven´t worked. Coincidentally or not,

Iran Gets an Unlikely Visitor, an American Plane, but No One Seems to Know Why

Lucianne.com - 59 sec ago
New York Times, by Michael Corkery* Posted By: StormCnter- Fri, 18 12 2014 03:12:11 GMT President Obama has warned that Iran is not open for business, even as the United States has loosened some of its punishing economic sanctions as part of an interim nuclear pact. Yet, on Tuesday morning, Iran had an unlikely visitor: a plane, owned by the Bank of Utah, a community bank in Ogden that has 13 branches throughout the state. Bearing a small American flag on its tail, the aircraft was parked in a highly visible section of Mehrabad Airport in Tehran. But from there, the story surrounding the plane, and why it was in Iran — where all but a few

Cost of Treatment May Influence Doctors

New York Times, by Andrew Pollack Posted By: StormCnter- Fri, 18 07 2014 03:07:22 GMT Saying they can no longer ignore the rising prices of health care, some of the most influential medical groups in the nation are recommending that doctors weigh the costs, not just the effectiveness of treatments, as they make decisions about patient care. The shift, little noticed outside the medical establishment but already controversial inside it, suggests that doctors are starting to redefine their roles, from being concerned exclusively about individual patients to exerting influence on how health care dollars are spent. “We understand that we doctors should be and are stewards of the larger society as well as of the patient in

Taking Religion Seriously

American Magazine, by Charles Murray Posted By: eagleblurst- Fri, 18 33 2014 02:33:43 GMT If you are a high'IQ recent graduate from a top college or university, here is where you probably stand when it comes to religion: It’s not for you. You don’t mind if other people are devout, but you don’t get it. Smart people don’t believe that stuff anymore. Perhaps you are explicitly an atheist. Even if you are an agnostic, you don’t spend much time worrying about God, because there’s no point. If a God exists, it cannot be the kind of God who has anything to do with this flyspeck world… [Split]

Illinois Dems to offer $100 million in taxpayer money to lure Obama library site

Investor´s Business Daily, by Andrew Malcolm Posted By: SurferLad- Fri, 18 15 2014 02:15:50 GMT First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra'style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush '' built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

American Thinker, by Marc Hopin Posted By: SpeedMaster- Fri, 18 14 2014 02:14:46 GMT Scientists believe that over the last two billion years or so, there have been as many as seventeen times that Earth has experienced an Ice Age. They suspect an Ice Age when they see shifts in geological formations that are so severe that the only explanation appears to be glaciers forming and moving large quantities of land from one part of the continent to another part. Each Ice Age is estimated to have lasted for at least 100,000 years, with some lasting millions of years. Each was eventually followed by a period of gradual warming, resulting in the glaciers melting and

Snitchgate '' Sharpton Is Still Lying

Townhall, by Larry Elder Posted By: garnet- Fri, 18 10 2014 02:10:04 GMT If the Rev. Al Sharpton, the bigoted, anti-Semitic, non-tax paying race-hustling poverty pimp, had any credibility left, it just vanished. The beneficiary of a lifetime of passes from our race-conscious mainscream media, Sharpton ran into an outlet not afraid of him '' The Smoking Gun. They obtained material that exposed Sharpton as an FBI "informant." Sharpton, of course, denies that this constitutes "snitching." No, he says he "volunteered" to "cooperate" with the FBI '' and for the most honorable of motives. Why would the government-hating "civil rights" leader cooperate with the feds?

Labor Fascism in Chattanooga

American Thinker, by Mathew Vadum Posted By: magnante- Fri, 18 08 2014 02:08:36 GMT As the labor movement tells the story, two months ago, the silly, ungrateful Volkswagen factory workers in Tennessee foolishly rejected the generous invitation of the company and the United Auto Workers to welcome the Detroit'killing union with open arms. In an election supervised by the federal National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), the workers in VW´s Chattanooga plant rejected UAW representation by a vote of 712 to 626. Amazingly, the UAW and the automaker both refuse to take the workers´ "no" for an answer. The two sides are acting in unison to overturn the democratically expressed will of the workers.

PJ Media, by Paula Bolyard Posted By: Judy W.- Fri, 18 04 2014 02:04:34 GMT British Prime Minister David Cameron used his Easter message to talk about the significance of the holiday as he highlighted the role of Christianity in Britain and the plight of Christians in countries where they are persecuted. He said the country should reflect on what Christianity brings to Britain. “All over the UK, every day, there are countless acts of kindness carried out by those who believe in and follow Christ,” Cameron said. “The heart of Christianity is to ‘love thy neighbour’ and millions do really live that out.” He mentioned prison ministries, soup kitchens and homeless shelters run by churches.

Have a wonderful celebration. Excerpts from President Ronald Reagan’s Radio Address to the Nation on the Observance of Easter and Passover, April 2, 1983 My fellow Americans: This week as American families draw together in worship, we join with millions upon millions of others around the world also celebrating the traditions of their faiths. During these days, at least, regardless of nationality, religion, or race, we are united by faith in God, and the barriers between us seem less

Time Bombs in Democratic Coalition

National Review, by Mona Charen Posted By: garnet- Fri, 18 00 2014 02:00:03 GMT The Republican Party is roiling with internal conflicts, say the analysts. The tea party is confronting the establishment. The noninterventionists are at war (forgive the expression) with the interventionists. The libertarians would like the party to endorse same'sex marriage. Fair enough. These conflicts will play out during the primaries in 2016, and we´ll discover whether they are serious fault lines or merely squabbles. Meanwhile, the Democratic Party, supposedly the firm fortress of the middle class, minorities and women, is actually showing some internal stresses as well. Little fissures are snaking through the crust, perhaps reflecting tectonic movement beneath. The president´s approval rating has

The zealots win again

Washington Post, by Charles Krauthammer Posted By: Judy W.- Fri, 18 53 2014 01:53:43 GMT The debate over campaign contributions is never'ending for a simple reason: Both sides of the argument have merit. On the one hand, of course money is speech. For most citizens, contributing to politicians or causes is the most effective way to augment and amplify speech with which they agree. The most disdainful dismissers of this argument are editorialists and incumbent politicians who — surprise! — already enjoy access to vast audiences and don’t particularly like their monopoly being invaded by the unwashed masses or the self'made plutocrat. On the other hand, of course money is corrupting.
