FrontPage, by Mark Tapson Posted By: Judy W.- Sat, 25 02 2014 12:02:03 GMT In the classic tale The Wizard of Oz, Dorothy and friends peer behind the curtain to discover that the great and powerful Wizard of the Emerald City is not who he seems. Now in the new documentary There’s No Place Like Utopia, filmmaker Joel Gilbert sets off on a whimsical, eye'opening, occasionally animated (a lá Michael Moore), Oz'like journey of his own, skipping down the Yellow Brick Road of failed socialist promises and peeling back the curtain to reveal Barack Obama as America’s very own fraudulent Wizard. Gilbert is also the director and writer of the documentaries Dreams from My

BBC News [UK], by Staff Posted By: Attercliffe- Sat, 25 50 2014 11:50:55 GMT The number of cases in the Ebola outbreak has exceeded 10,000, with 4,922 deaths, the World Health Organization says in its latest report. Only 27 of the cases have occurred outside the three worst'hit countries, Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea. Those three countries account for all but 10 of the fatalities. Mali became the latest nation to record a death, a two'year'old girl. More than 40 people known to have come into contact with her have been quarantined. The latest WHO situation report says that Liberia remains the worst affected country, with 4,665 deaths. Sierra Leone has had 3,896 fatalities

Is It As Close As That?

Townhall, by Erick Erickson Posted By: Judy W.- Sat, 25 45 2014 11:45:30 GMT For most of 2012, I maintained that Mitt Romney would lose to Barack Obama. Only after President Obama´s first debate did there seem to be a glimmer of hope. After that debate, polling moved in Romney´s direction. Conservatives had hope. As we now know, much of the polling in 2012 was wrong. There were some great pollsters. The IBD/TIPP poll, the Reuters/Ipsos poll, the Pew Poll, and others were spot on. But many pollsters, including the most prominent pollster of all, Gallup, were left with black eyes. After the election, Scott Rasmussen left his own eponymous polling firm. The Rasmussen poll, relied

Joan Quigley, Astrologer to a First Lady, Is Dead at 87

New York Times, by Douglas Martin Posted By: JoniTx- Sat, 25 20 2014 11:20:03 GMT In his 1988 memoir, Donald T. Regan, a former chief of staff for President Ronald Reagan, revealed what he called the administration’s “most closely guarded secret.” He said an astrologer had set the time for summit meetings, presidential debates, Reagan’s 1985 cancer surgery, State of the Union addresses and much more. Without an O.K. from the astrologer, he said, Air Force One did not take off. The astrologer, whose name Mr. Regan did not know when he wrote the book, was Joan Quigley. She died on Tuesday at 87 at her home in San Francisco, her sister and only immediate

Toxic Partisanship? Bill Clinton Says He Had It Worse, Yet Got Things Done

Lucianne.com - 2 min 27 sec ago
New York Times, by Amy Chozick Posted By: JoniTx- Sat, 25 17 2014 11:17:14 GMT President Obama heads into midterm elections in which he may face crushing losses. He has been spurned by his own party, whose candidates do not even want to be seen with him. The president’s supporters say the toxic atmosphere in Washington has made it impossible for Mr. Obama to succeed. But there is a counter view being offered by a former Democratic president that as far as personal attacks go, he, Bill Clinton, had it worse. “Nobody’s accused him of murder yet, as far as I know. I mean, it was pretty rough back then,” Mr. Clinton said last month

Is President Obama capable of a correction?

Lucianne.com - 2 min 27 sec ago
American Thinker, by Silvio Canto, Jr. Posted By: JoniTx- Sat, 25 09 2014 11:09:48 GMT Does President Obama understand just how badly his presidency is going? Is there someone telling him or speaking frankly about these problems? My guess is that there is no one in the Obama White House who speaks bluntly and candidly. By all indications, he´s surrounded by people who scream "yes we can" every time he enters the room. A few days ago, Ron Fournier wrote an article about White House staff changes. It was very complete, including saying that President Obama needs to fire everybody and start from scratch. He needs to hire truth'tellers, business leaders, and a Republican to

HazMat team empties Ebola doctor´s apartment WITHOUT gloves, face masks or any protective gear

Daily Mail [UK], by Chris Spargo Posted By: Attercliffe- Sat, 25 43 2014 10:43:43 GMT The preparedness of New York City officials and workers to deal with Ebola has once again left much to be desired as a HazMat team sent in to decontaminate the apartment of Craig Spencer, the first person to contract the deadly virus in the city, was seen leaving his apartment with sealed barrels, but wearing no protective gear. The men were photographed exiting the apartment without gloves, face masks, or anything else to protect them as they loaded the barrels with possibly contaminated goods into the back of a truck. In fact, one man had something dangling out of his

Politico Magazine, by Gregg Herken Posted By: StormCnter- Sat, 25 32 2014 10:32:15 GMT In the autumn of 1945, with the United States and the world at peace for the first time in half a decade, the most sought'after and exclusive invitation was to one of Joe Alsop’s Sunday night suppers. Less formal than the capital’s prewar soirees, where decorum was dictated by a 1923 book, Anne Squire’s Social Washington—a veritable Robert’s Rules of Order for entertaining in the capital city—the suppers were an occasion for a close coterie of those Joe called his “tribal friends” and assorted guests to get together when their maids and cooks had the night off. Alsop, a political

National Review Online, by Andrew C. McCarthy Posted By: StormCnter- Sat, 25 29 2014 10:29:35 GMT In Modern Times, his sweeping history of the 20th century, Paul Johnson recounts how Einstein’s theory of relativity, a strictly scientific principle, was contorted into relativism, a loopy social phenomenon, through a permanent campaign of serpentine rhetoric. It is, as Roger Kimball explains in The Fortunes of Permanence, a classic example of how a sensible concept or term of art that helps us grasp some narrow aspect of reality can end up distorting reality when ripped from its moorings and broadly applied. Another good example is “lone wolf.” Since Thursday afternoon, newscasters have incessantly told us that the late and unlamented Zale

Mississippi high court rejects McDaniel appeal

Lucianne.com - 2 min 27 sec ago
The Hill [DC], by David McCabe Posted By: StormCnter- Sat, 25 26 2014 10:26:55 GMT Mississippi’s highest court dismissed a challenge to Sen. Thad Cochran’s (R'Miss.) victory in a June runoff. The challenge was brought by Chris McDaniel, his opponent in the race. The state´s supreme court ruled with the lower panel, saying that McDaniel waited to long to file the challenge. For a few weeks this summer, Cochran and McDaniel’s tight race became one of the most interesting in the country. Cochran is a longtime member of the Republican establishment in the upper chamber; McDaniel attacked him from the right — eventually forcing him into the runoff. With the nomination on the line, Cochran’s team appealed to

Democrats Join The Ferguson Lynch Mob Right As The Case Against Officer Wilson Collapses

Daily Caller, by David Horowitz Posted By: StormCnter- Sat, 25 23 2014 10:23:06 GMT Everyone who hasn’t drunk the progressive Kool'Aid is aware that during elections Democrats resort to the race card to scare African Americans, for whose intelligence they have limitless contempt, into voting for them. If Republicans are elected, their propaganda claims, “black churches will burn” or the racial clock will be turned back to the era of segregation, an era that Democrats happen to have been directly responsible for. This year it’s the mythical threat white policeman allegedly pose to black youth, as Democrats and their media enablers encourage a “lynch mob” mentality — as Howard Kurtz put it recently —

Dems turn to ´Thelma & Louise´ to kill off GOP

Lucianne.com - 2 min 27 sec ago
Washington Examiner [DC], by Paul Bedard Posted By: MissMolly- Sat, 25 16 2014 10:16:29 GMT The Democrats are increasingly turning to feminists to help them keep the Senate in the upcoming midterm election, the latest being "Thelma & Louise" actress Susan Sarandon. She signed a MoveOn.org email Friday which charged that Republicans are just a bunch of liars that need a little push over the cliff, Thelma & Louise style. Her email: Dear fellow MoveOn member, I´m going to keep this brief because, believe it or not, I don´t really like speaking in front of large groups. And while this isn´t exactly a speech, MoveOn members are actually a pretty big crowd. Truth be told, that´s the reason I

Radio host and self'styled “People’s Lawyer” convicted of mortgage fraud

Chicago Sun'Times, by Kim Janssen Posted By: MissMolly- Sat, 25 12 2014 10:12:17 GMT He styled himself “The People’s Attorney” and once claimed that 3 million listeners tuned in to hear his brand of black empowerment on his nationally'syndicated radio show. But former Soul 106.3 personality Warren Ballentine is now a convicted fraudster. A federal jury took less than an hour Friday morning to find Ballentine, 43, guilty on six counts connected to a mortgage scam that bilked lenders out of $10 million. Ballentine hung his head, frowned and mouthed the word “Man” as the verdicts that could see him jailed for as long as 30 years were announced by U.S. District Judge Matthew Kennelly. It marked a

Hints of an Iran giveaway

Washington Post, by Jennifer Rubin Posted By: StormCnter- Sat, 25 06 2014 10:06:27 GMT Our lead negotiator at the P5+1 talks, Wendy Sherman, gave a speech Thursday on the status of the negotiation. If her aim was to say nothing of any import, she almost succeeded. There were plenty of meaningless phrases and fluff. “We have made impressive progress on issues that originally seemed intractable. We have cleared up misunderstandings and held exhaustive discussions on every element of a possible text. However, like any complicated and technically complex diplomatic initiative, this is a puzzle with many interlocking pieces.” It is quite an artful way of saying we can’t get Iran to agree to stop

Terrorism as Art?

American Spectator, by Laura Genero Posted By: StormCnter- Sat, 25 00 2014 10:00:43 GMT With exquisitely bad timing, and amid furious protests, this week the Metropolitan Opera premiered a new version of John Adams’ controversial opera, The Death of Klinghoffer. The opera focuses on the 1985 murder of a disabled American tourist, Leon Klinghoffer, by Palestinian terrorists during the hijacking of the Achille Lauro cruise ship. Klinghoffer was shot because he was Jewish; his killers forced the crew to throw his body and wheelchair overboard. Apparently, this was just the catalyst director/provocateur Peter Sellars needed to propose that composer John Adams and librettist Alice Goodman write a new opera addressing terrorism (they had previously collaborated

Race'baiting down the homestretch

Lucianne.com - 2 min 27 sec ago
Washington Times, by Deneen Borelli Posted By: StormCnter- Sat, 25 54 2014 09:54:22 GMT Desperate times call for desperate measures, and with the possibility of Republicans gaining control of the Senate in the upcoming midterm elections, the left is resorting to jaw'droppingly despicable race'baiting tactics. From the White House to the Georgia Democratic Party, to the gutter from which Al Sharpton spins his hateful rhetoric, the Democrats’ race'baiting machine is in full gear in a furious effort to drive blacks to the polls. Because her husband’s unpopularity makes his presence politically toxic for liberal candidates, first lady Michelle Obama is traveling the country stumping for Democrats. In what is a new low for a first lady,

Many Bellevue staffers take ‘sick’ day after Ebola patient arrives

Lucianne.com - 2 min 27 sec ago
New York Post, by Jamie Schram & Larry Celona Posted By: MissMolly- Sat, 25 49 2014 09:49:47 GMT An extraordinary number of Bellevue Hospital staffers called in sick on Friday rather than treat the city’s first Ebola patient — and those who showed up were terrified to enter his isolation chamber, sources told The Post. “The nurses on the floor are miserable with a ‘why me?’ attitude, scared to death and overworked because all their co'workers called out sick,” one source said. “One nurse even went as far as to pretend she was having a stroke to get out of working there, but once they cleared her in the ER they sent her back up,” the source added. Dr. Craig Spencer

Media Should Stop Lecturing Americans About Their Ebola Concerns

The Federalist, by Mollie Hemingway Posted By: StormCnter- Sat, 25 45 2014 09:45:27 GMT Like 98 percent of Americans, I’ve heard the news about Ebola. I’ve even followed the news with interest for months, taking seriously the media claims that this was a serious outbreak that had potential to become even more serious. And as the first cases started being flown to the United States or being discovered here, that interest developed. When the news broke that the CDC had OK’d Ebola'exposed medical workers flying on planes, it certainly made me question claims of government competency, but it still didn’t make me panic. I just flew to Chicago and back this week. I’m flying to Detroit
