Jeb Bush (R'FL) said President Barack Obama is “speaking the truth” on racial injustice. Bush said, “When President Obama says that ‘for too long we’ve been blind to the way past injustices continue to shape the present,’ he is speaking the truth. But we should be just as candid about our failures in addressing injustices of the more recent origin. In our cities we’ve got so many people that have never known anything but poverty is. So many young adults with no vision of a

Fri, 07/31/2015 - 18:20
The Hill [Washington, DC], by Bernie Becker & Vicki Needham Posted By: KarenJ1- Fri, 31 19 2015 10:19:18 GMT Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R'Ky.) is warning U.S. officials negotiating a massive trans'Pacific trade agreement for President Obama not to target tobacco growers in a final deal. McConnell said singling out the tobacco industry would set a dangerous precedent for future trade deals, in a letter to Obama’s top trade representative. The missive from McConnell suggests that congressional approval for the Trans'Pacific Partnership (TPP), a deal with 11 other countries that is the central goal of Obama’s trade policy, could be jeopardized by the tobacco language. Republicans from other tobacco'producing states, such as North Carolina, have issued similar threats in recent

Fri, 07/31/2015 - 18:20
Washington Examiner, by Paul Bedard Posted By: Desert Fox- Fri, 31 18 2015 10:18:29 GMT It seems that Americans can add "no more Obamas" to the oft'heard calls for no more Bushes or Clintons, despite the president´s belief that he would be a shoo'in for a third term. Rasmussen Reports on Friday released a poll showing that just one third of likely U.S voters would keep President Obama in office if he ran again. Even among Democrats, only 57 percent would vote for him a third time. In his recent trip to Africa, Obama said, "I actually think I´m a pretty good president." Then he added, "I think if I ran I could win. But I can´t.

New York Post, by Sara Stewart Posted By: MissMolly- Fri, 31 49 2015 09:49:12 GMT “It’s a dreadfully unjust world,” Louisa May Alcott once wrote. Never have these words rung more true than yesterday, when news broke that Alcott’s most famous book, “Little Women,” was being developed into a TV show by the CW. It is, to understate, a less than faithful adaptation of Alcott’s 1868 novel about four sisters, Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy, and their lives in Civil War'era New England. The network’s description of the update: “A hyper'stylized, gritty adaptation of the 1868 novel .?.?. in which disparate half'sisters Jo, Meg, Beth and Amy band together in order to survive the dystopic streets

Fri, 07/31/2015 - 16:52
Breitbart Big Government, by AWR Hawkins Posted By: KarenJ1- Fri, 31 26 2015 09:26:52 GMT On July 30, New Yorkers Against Gun Violence (NYAGV) launched a campaign to pressure Apple into removing the popular pistol'shaped emoji from the iPhone platform. NYAGV believes Congress will pass more gun control if Apple removes the emoji. Thus, a video accompanying the campaign says that by removing the emoji, Apple can “show [that] America wants stricter access to real guns.” Because the overarching goal of the campaign goes beyond the emoji, and looks instead to securing more gun control in Congress, the disarmtheiphone.com website is rife with the kind of gun control propaganda one usually hears from Gabby Giffords,

EPIC – Debbie Wasserman'Schultz Can’t Define Difference Between Socialist and Democrat….

Fri, 07/31/2015 - 16:34
Conservative Treehouse, by Sundance Posted By: KarenJ1- Fri, 31 47 2015 08:47:43 GMT The reason the head of the DNC cannot tell the difference is because in 2015 the Democrat party has moved so far to the left, they are now fully immersed socialists. Remember the “blue dog democrats”? It might seem like a lifetime ago, but the “blue dogs” were the democrat candidates who won election victory in 2006 and tipped the scales of power to Nancy Pelosi. Less than four years later (two House election cycles), and due entirely to the socialist policies enacted by Nancy Pelosi and company, the “blue dog dems” were totally wiped out in 2010.

A budget measure that strips funding from the organization “is certainly something that would draw a presidential veto,” press secretary Josh Earnest said. “We have routinely opposed the inclusion of ideologically driven riders” in budget bills, Earnest added. It is the first time the White House issued a veto threat against Republican efforts to defund Planned Parenthood since an anti'abortion group began releasing secretly recorded videos.
