  • Obama Voters Rewrite American National Anthem

    American Thinker ^ | 11.12.12 | Reuel E. Topas
    The punditocracy, like the oracles of old, has spoken. Obama won because of various and sundry reasons, most of which can be debated and none of which is the single, sufficient cause. But one reason, or unreason, was a definite and perhaps the single most important factor: what became infamously known as "the 47%," who now suckle at the government teat.

    #4 - I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been surprised to learn that one of my white friends or associates was a Republican. Ugh. It’s a troubling realization. Not only because of the political ideologies; (I don’t understand why folk can’t see the Republicans are just about money.), but also because the Republican party has been known to associate and or attract the type of folk who cling to racist, sexist and classist thoughts and even behaviors. There’s the tea party folk, the Todd Akin type dudes and most recently people who can’t act like they have a...

    Welcome To 1933: A Forecast For Infrastructure Nov 12th, 2012 Matt Insley Thank goodness I’m heading to the dentist, I thought to myself last week. Not often that happens, eh? I just received a call from a co-worker, that my morning commute was set for a hellish twist. What was normally a quick 20-30 minute commute was set to take over an hour and a half! Luckily, though, I wasn’t heading in to the office until later that day so the commute from hell was avoided. The reason for the delay, however, is sparking a new resource trend I want...

    JERUSALEM — Russian Orthodox Patriarch Kirill called on Sunday for closer cooperation between religions at meetings with Israel’s chief rabbis in Jerusalem, on the third day of a historic Holy Land visit. “In our times, when people are giving up faith and tradition, there is special significance to good ties between representatives of different faiths,” he told Israel’s Sephardi Chief Rabbi Shlomo Amar. “Today, when so many people think that the main thing in life is to be free and give up belief, it is all the more important to retain moral values,” he said in simultaneously translated remarks. The...

    In 1935, these transfers were less than 3 percent of the economy; now they’re almost 20 percent. That’s $7,200 a year for every American, calculates Eberstadt. He says that nearly 40 percent of these transfers aim to relieve poverty (through Medicaid, food stamps, unemployment insurance and the like), while most of the rest goes to the elderly (mainly through Social Security and Medicare). First, it squeezes other government programs. This is already happening. President Obama’s budget assumes that defense spending, as a share of the economy, falls 39 percent from 2011 to 2022. The Army is to drop by 80,000...
  • MSNBC's Chris Jansing: 'Parallels' Between Lincoln and Reelected Obama are 'Fascinating'

    11/12/2012 9:40:27 AM PST · by chessplayer · 50 replies
    MSNBC host Chris Jansing on Monday found the "parallels" between Abraham Lincoln and the newly reelected Barack Obama to be "fascinating." The anchor interviewed Gloria Reuben, liberal actress and co-star of the Steven Spielberg film. Jansing connected, "...You have a president who is newly elected, who faces a divided country and a divided Congress and a divided country." Couldn't such a vague analogy be made for many presidents, including George W. Bush? Jansing introduced the Lincoln actress by pointing out, "You're a social activist. You've been very big in pro-choice. You've been a supporter of Barack Obama and the AIDS...
  • Why did Paula Broadwell think the CIA had taken prisoners in Benghazi?

    Washington Post ^ | November 12, 2012 | Max Fisher
    I can only imagine three possible explanations, all of which should be taken with many grains of salt: 1. Intelligence from faraway conflict areas can be hazy, and the story got honestly confused. Who knows how long or convoluted the chain of information was from Benghazi to Broadwell, whether or not it went through Petraeus, and it’s not hard to imagine a misstatement or mistake getting amplified. 2. She made it up or exaggerated some other piece of information, possibly including the name-dropping implication of Petraeus’s knowledge, either deliberately or mistakenly. 3. The story is true, and she let slip...

    Republican campaign adviser Karl Rove complained that his Party was the victim of vote suppression. “You couldn’t turn on a TV in a swing state without seeing a Democrat ad tearing down our nominee,” Rove said. “Sadly, too many registered Republicans were so disgusted by these attacks that they sat out this election as a protest. It was so unfair.” Rove contrasted the Democrats’ “low road” with the GOP’s “high road.” “On numerous occasions Governor Romney called President Obama a ‘nice guy,’” Rove pointed out. “Not once did President Obama respond in kind. Voters were left to conclude that the...

    full title.....Revealed: Petraeus 'flew his biographer mistress to Paris on taxpayer funded trip after being named CIA chief' David Petraeus took his mistress with him on a government-funded trip to Paris after he was named director of the Central Intelligence Agency, it was claimed today. ~~SNIP~~ Buzzfeed also reports that Petraeus's unofficial press agent, Tom Ricks, helped Broadwell score a literary agent, a publisher and a six-figure deal for her biography. Broadwell isn't the only biographer of Petraeus's who has gotten special treatment from him.

Johnson Mainstream media reports notwithstanding, the Allen West-Patrick Murphy race is far from over, according to a volunteer lawyer with the campaign. Voting irregularities abound in what has shaped up to be one of the most hotly contested congressional races of the 2012 campaign. On Sunday, the West campaign saw a net gain of 535 votes for Congressman West in a re-feed of early ballots in St. Lucie County, roughly 43.5% of the total ballots cast in the...

    LONDON, Nov 12 (Reuters) - The United States will overtake Saudi Arabia and Russia as the world's top oil producer by 2017, the West's energy agency said on Monday, predicting Washington will come very close to achieving a previously unthinkable energy self-sufficiency. The International Energy Agency (IEA) said it saw a continued fall in U.S. oil imports with North America becoming a net oil exporter by around 2030 and the United States becoming almost self-sufficient in energy by 2035.

    Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas threw cold water on President Barack Obama’s election victory, answering the president with a direct “no” after Obama told him his administration is opposed to the PA’s unilateral move for recognition by the United Nations General Assembly. Abbas’ blunt “no” underscored the new Middle East reality, where the PA chief feels he can snub the United States and bank on international opposition to the State of Israel’s position for defensible borders, said analysts. "There was a long telephone conversation between president Mahmud Abbas and Barack Obama," the Palestinian leader's spokesman Nabil Abu Rudeina told AFP....

    Dr Wayne Dyer describes people as eagles and ducks. With a majority of Americans voting to give the undeserving Obama a second term, I felt like the odd-man-out voting against him. It occurred to me that I have a history of being odd-man-out, not in sync with the thinking of my family and friends. When I was in junior high school, my dad acknowledged my artistic talent and encouraged me to pursue a career in that field. Dad said, “You could be a great black artist someday.” While I appreciated Dad's support, I thought, “ Why can't I simply be...

    APIn Ryan Lizza's story in this week's The New Yorker, Texas' newly-elected Republican Senator Ted Cruz worries about the changing electoral landscape --- and how it could get even less favorable for the GOP in coming years.  Cruz provides what must be a truly terrifying thought for the Republican Party:"In not too many years, Texas could switch from being all Republican to all Democrat," he said. "If that happens, no Republican will ever again win the White House. New York and California are for the foreseeable future unalterably Democrat. If Texas turns bright blue, the Electoral College math is simple. We...

    Last week’s election results undoubtedly left many readers deeply disappointed, if not disaffected, including those of you who couldn’t bring yourselves to cast your ballot for Mitt Romney for any number of well documented reasons. The prospect of a president unencumbered by electoral consequences, whose administration has already shown itself to be flagrantly indifferent to-if not contemptuous of-the rule of law and quaint Constitutional notions like the separation of powers, seems daunting to ordinary, patriotic citizens. What’s more, the same malleable, anemic species of Republican which has represented GOP voters for the past two years, and whose leadership has led...
  • ObamaCare and using the 14th Amendment as Toilet Paper

    Among the objections to ObamaCare, one that has not gotten as much attention as it should is the president's power to waive the law for any company, union or other enterprise he chooses. The 14th Amendment to the Constitution provides for "equal protection of the laws" for all Americans. To have a law that can cost an organization millions of dollars a year either apply or not apply, depending on the whim or political interest of the President of the United States, is to make a mockery of the rule of law. How secure is any freedom when there is...

    I am stunned that I was stunned by the election. I am a fool. I convinced myself that the polls were not real. I convinced myself that the world I see around me every day is not real. I hoped for a redemptive moment without seeing any penitence. You can't have one without the other. I, along with countless others, have been trying to figure out how President Obama managed to win a second term. Trying to discover the key statistic that would explain the defeat has become a cottage industry over the past week. Every pundit on every side...
