    The Boehner Fiscal Offer Dec 4, 2012 | Author: Daniel Horowitz Here are two things to keep in mind with regards to Boehner’s budget offer. First, when you begin negotiations agreeing to 60% of the demands of the other side and fail to offer a bold contrast on the other 40%, you are headed for an outcome that is 80-90% favorable to your opponent. Second, when you need to outsource your budget plan and entire view of government to Democrat Erskine Bowles, you are relegating yourself and your party to irrelevancy. John Boehner and other House GOP leaders have offered...

    A hard to read, hard to believe, hard to write about communique from South Florida Tea Party sources involves the alleged real reasons General David Petreaus “was forced out a few days before the Benghazi hearings.” Citing the stand down orders, the stupid video, and the pulled security, this memo makes a convincing case that a failed October Surprise kidnap event of the U.S. diplomat had a political backdrop involving the impending election. Various background data mentioned in this bulletin contain a tit for tat exchange of Mission Chief Chris Stevens for the Blind Sheik, Omar Abdel Rahman who was...

    Bill Clinton is famous for feeling others' pain. So he might be the last person one would suspect of having Asperger syndrome, which is characterized by a lack of demonstrated empathy. Yet that is precisely the thought that passed through the mind of Ron Fournier after meeting the former president with his son Tyler, who is diagnosed with the disorder. Fournier told the surprising story on today's Morning Joe. A former Associated Press reporter, now with the National Journal, Fournier recounted how during the meeting, Clinton went off on a long monologue about Teddy Roosevelt, missing the clues that he...

    LEAGUE CITY — With a karate chop to the throat, a 79-year-old resident disarmed a rifle-toting man who was accused by police of being high on bath salts while trying to break into a home. Ervin Brittnacher awoke shortly before 6 a.m. Monday to a racket in front of his house in the 3000 block of McFarland Road, League City police Lt. Bruce Whitten said. “We talked to the homeowner, who said he woke up to a guy banging on the porch,” Whitten said. “It sounded like he was ripping the screen off.” Brittnacher opened the door to see what...
  • Why President Obama's Tax Hike Will Hurt the 98%

    Forbes ^ | 12/04/2012 | Charles Kadlec
    President Barack Obama’s campaign to raise tax rates on the top 2% will cause far more economic pain to the 98% than to the truly rich. First, the truly rich have already demonstrated their ability to avoid much of the Obama tax hikes. At the same time, the higher marginal tax rates he demands will reduce the opportunities for economic activity, leading to slower growth and fewer job opportunities for the 98%. Finally, those with high incomes inevitably will shift much of the burden of Obama tax hike to those with lower incomes. Let’s start with the ruse that the...

    Pregnant Kate Middleton could very well be carrying twins, medical experts have commented - because the duchess is suffering from acute morning sickness. Duchess Kate is currently being treated in hospital for the ailment, otherwise known as hyperemesis gravidarum – a condition which is more commonly associated with women who are carrying twins. Now rumours are rife that the royal, who is married to Prince William, could be carrying not just one baby, but two. But if Kate is indeed carrying twins we won’t know for a good few weeks yet. In fact the duchess isn’t even at the 12-week...

    The opening scene-setter for the 1996 film "Independence Day" might serve as a metaphor for what Egyptians could face if a draft constitution written by a panel dominated by Islamists and based on Sharia law wins approval in a referendum: "A loud rumble is heard. Suddenly, we are covered in darkness as the shadow engulfs us. Only the image of our Earth hangs in the air, until a huge silhouetted object suddenly blocks our view." Egypt could well embrace the dark side (to mix movie metaphors) and become the region's biggest force for extremism, just ahead of the Wahaabists in...

    Bishops must exercise closer supervision over Catholic charities and ensure that their activities do not contradict church doctrine, according to new rules issued by Pope Benedict XVI on Saturday (Dec. 1). The new guidelines state that charities with links to the church must “follow Catholic principles in their activity” and may not “accept commitments” that could undermine those principles in any way. They also bar charities from accepting funding “from groups or institutions that pursue ends contrary to the church’s teaching” or for initiatives that are “not in conformity with the Church’s teaching.” Should an organization fall short of these...

BWA General Secretary Neville Callam said he is “deeply concerned about the continuing attacks being perpetrated by extremist groups, in many cases targeting Christians.” Callam issued the statement after Olasupo Ayokunle, president and chief executive officer of the Nigerian Baptist Convention, reported two pastors were among at least 15 people killed Nov. 25 in a suicide bombing of a church located on a military base in Jaji in Kaduna State. Callam cited special concern about Maiduguri, where a third...

    Also, the defense has filed a motion asking for the original interview of Trayvon Martin's phone friend "Dee Dee", whom Team Crump has described as 16 years old since March 20, the day they played a phone conversation between her and Crump. Why? It seems when the state interviewed her on April 2, they asked her how old she was and she said "18." The state redacted both the question and the answer from the recording initially provided the defense (and the media version).

Nevertheless, in the aftermath what we can see and hear gives us a fair idea of what we couldn’t...

    Sales of the Windows 8 operating system, which was launched on October 26, were driven by upgrades rather than users purchasing the software on new machines, according to Reuters. Microsoft sold 60 million Windows 7 licenses in two months, compare to 40 million licenses of Windows 8 in one month. Tami Reller, finance and marketing head of Microsoft's Windows division, said yesterday: "Windows 8 upgrade momentum is outpacing that of Windows 7," speaking at an investor conference held by Credit Suisse. Previous versions of Microsoft operating systems sold considerably fewer licenses than Windows 8 in a comparable period, with XP...

    WESTLAKE, La. — In an ambitious bet that the glut of cheap natural gas in the United States will last for many years, a South African energy company announced on Monday that it would build America’s first commercial plant to convert natural gas to diesel and other liquid fuels. The company, Sasol, which is based in Johannesburg, has been a pioneer in a technology that has tantalized energy scientists for decades over its potential to produce liquid fuels without using oil, which has historically cost far more than natural gas. Having already built smaller plants in South Africa and Qatar,...

    The rush is on in the Eagle Ford Shale, and some of it has more to do with legal contracts than extracting oil and gas from miles below the surface. The clock is ticking on many of the mineral leases that South Texas landowners signed a few years ago after the first successful Eagle Ford well in La Salle County in 2008. If oil and gas companies don’t start production soon, they could lose rights to drill. People who own mineral rights would be free to sign leases with other companies. Leases vary but typically include an upfront bonus payment...

    The New York Times might contain “all the news fit to print,” but it also contains bias, distortion and outright lies supporting failed policies and irrational fears. On Black Friday, as Americans were setting another record in single-day firearm purchases, the Times editorial board was decrying the lack of action in Congress on gun control and calling for President Obama to keep his promises to pursue gun-control legislation. In typical, disingenuous Times fashion, they denigrated gun owners for taking Obama’s “tepid remark” about gun control during the presidential debates as a threat, and then characterized these same remarks from Obama...

    New House and Senate members are being urged to reject an invitation to join the 105-strong Congressional Prayer Caucus by the influential American Humanist Association which claims there is no evidence of God or Heaven. In a letter to new lawmakers following last week's election, the group warned that Prayer Caucus members too often push legislation that favors Christianity and Christian social morals and that senators and congressmen should abide the Constitutionally mandated separation of church and state. They also indicated opposition to the practice of opening and closing each session of Congress with a prayer, which "relegates non-religious Americans...

    Islamofascism: To hear the president and his media stenographers, Egypt's new leader is a "practical" guy who's surprisingly Westernized. He loves our movies and even the "ERA." Such positive reviews provide Mohammed Morsi a fig leaf of secularism and legitimacy. But they cannot hide his dark Islamist heart. [snip] For starters, Morsi was hardly a bit player in the Brotherhood. He was hailed as a martyr by the radical Islamist group after spending seven months behind bars for supporting jihadists. And he worked for years alongside Hamas, the Brotherhood's Palestinian branch. He spent a decade helping lead the Brotherhood's parliamentary...

Hasan, 42, is accused of killing of 13 people and wounding 32 others in a rampage at Ft. Hood, Texas, on Nov. 5, 2009. Hasan, who is Muslim, said that he had grown the beard for religious reasons and that it was protected under freedom of religious expression. Military prosecutors disagreed, as did the judge, Col.

    Some commentators wonder why President Obama always engages in brinksmanship. Why can't he meet Republicans halfway, like Clinton did, they ask. Let me try to respond. One blogger suggests that Obama prefers to play chicken, taking the nation right to the edge of a fiscal disaster because it will increase the likelihood that the GOP will cave. Perhaps, but there's more to it. Many of us warned that Obama is not, by nature or ideology, a conciliator. He is not a centrist, and he's not someone who is interested in the other side's ideas. He knows what he wants to...

    Given what we know in 2012, saying that capitalism will make a society richer than socialism should be about as controversial as saying the earth is round, not flat. Yet, a recent Gallup poll shows that more liberals have a positive view of socialism than capitalism. This is only possible because there are so many perverse incentives that drive the promotion of socialism. If you're a politician, socialism puts power in your hands while capitalism takes it away. If you want to use the government to control people's lives, socialism is a wonderful vehicle to do just that while capitalism...

    Reputed Colombo mobster Charles "Charlie Moose" Panarella has avoided trial on a labor racketeering indictment for the last decade by claiming infirmity but federal judge Sterling Johnson nevertheless has given the 90-year-old permission to travel from his Poconos home into New York "to accept an award from the union he's accused of pillaging" without even allowing the government an opportunity to object to "the audacious request" as reported by John Marzulli for the Daily News: "'we would never have approved it,' said a law enforcement source who spoke on condition of anonymity." Johnson took senior status in 2003 with the...

    It’s apparently cool for the cool kids to think that Grover Norquist is a dweeb. Yes, the guy who has been warning all of us about the untenable nature of the federal tax-and-spend system, the guy who came up with the novel idea that the Republican Party should actually stand for something- and be held accountable for campaign promises- is in trouble now. Prior to the election, the reason why politicians like Barack Obama and Lindsey Graham trimmed their sails to the political winds in the first place and extended the Bush era tax cuts was because a guy like...

    On the face of it, Ms Wintour, 63, may not appear a natural candidate for international diplomacy. Her reportedly aloof and demanding personality has earned her the nickname “Nuclear Wintour” and inspired the waspish character played by Meryl Streep in the film The Devil Wears Prada. But according to Bloomberg News, Mr Obama has placed her on his short list to safeguard transatlantic relations at the Court of St James. It would be hard to find a better connected ambassador in the fields of fashion and entertainment than Ms Wintour, who was awarded an OBE for services to British journalism...

    NEW HAVEN — A judge dismissed all charges against a local immigration lawyer arrested for bringing a licensed handgun to a Batman movie last year less than three weeks after a Colorado massacre at a debut of “The Dark Knight Rises.” On the behalf of the state, Supervisory Assistant State’s Attorney Dave Strollo Monday entered ”nolles” on counts of breach of peace and interfering with police against attorney Sung-Ho Hwang in connection with the Aug. 7 incident at the Criterion Cinemas downtown.

    The United States has denied an Iranian Revolutionary Guards’ claim that they downed a US spy drone, possibly part of the regime’s propaganda in the wake of mounting evidence pointing to a feverish race to develop a nuclear weapon. “The U.S. Navy has fully accounted for all unmanned air vehicles (UAV) operating in the Middle East region. Our operations in the Gulf are confined to internationally recognized water and air space,” a spokesman for U.S. Naval Forces Central Command in Bahrain told news agencies. “We have no record that we have lost any ScanEagles recently.” Iran’s state-controlled media reported Tuesday...
  • Where Have You Gone, Bill Buckley?

    IT is a shame that William F. Buckley Jr. passed away in 2008. The conservative movement could use him — or someone like him — right now. In the 1960s, Buckley, largely through his position at the helm of National Review, displayed political courage and sanity by taking on the John Birch Society, an influential anti-Communist group whose members saw conspiracies everywhere they looked. Fast forward half a century. The modern-day Birchers are the Tea Party. By loudly espousing extreme rhetoric, yet holding untenable beliefs, they have run virtually unchallenged by the Republican leadership, aided by irresponsible radio talk-show hosts...
