    02/27/2013 10:08:37 AM PST · by mnehring · 23 replies
    an Cliburn, the internationally celebrated pianist who grew up in Kilgore and whose triumph at a 1958 Moscow competition helped thaw the Cold War and launched a spectacular career that made him the rare classical musician to enjoy rock star status, has died. He was 78. Cliburn died early Wednesday at his Fort Worth home surrounded by loved ones following a battle with bone cancer, said his publicist and longtime friend Mary Lou Falcone. Cliburn made what would be his last public appearance in September at the 50th anniversary of the prestigious piano competition named for him. Speaking to the...

    New York Times THE WHITE HOUSE, WASHINGTON, DC… February 27, 2013 Today the White House warned that if the scheduled financial sequester takes place on March 1, the day will have to be shortened by 4.3%. Following a grim introduction by President Obama, White House Astronomer Dr. Karl Wretchman gave a press briefing this morning on the implications of such a shortfall. “Because of the Republicans’ refusal to allow a tax increase on the wealthiest Americans while demanding a cut in government spending on blind, homeless children, the Obama Administration has no choice but to cut the length of the...

    The Washington Post's Bob Woodward continues to break ranks with his Obama-loving colleagues by holding the President's feet to the fire concerning the looming budget sequester. Just days after he wrote a piece in the Post exposing the inconvenient truth that it was indeed the White House that initially proposed sequestration during the 2011 debt ceiling debate, Woodward appeared on MSNBC's Morning Joe Wednesday saying that Obama's decision to not send the USS Truman to the Persian Gulf as a result of these deliberations was "a kind of madness that I haven't seen in a long time" (video follows with...

    But I suppose it wouldn’t be entirely true to say that the Illinois lottery doesn’t have problems. After all, Jones has been spending quite a lot of the entity’s money jetting off to far off locations to complain about his job, and even state-run entities in economically illiterate states like Illinois have finite budgets. There’s only so much cash to go around. So after the little globe-trotting spree, it’s no wonder the Illinois lottery is having a little trouble cashing checks to winners. The Illinois Lottery bounced dozens of checks written to winners, many for scratch-off tickets worth $1,000.

    Obama's 'Non-Profit' Sells Political Access An incestuous relationship brews between the mega-wealthy and the White House. Last weekend, the New York Times revealed that President Obama's campaign apparatus, Organizing for Action (OFA), has reinvented itself as a 501c 4 tax-exempt non-profit advocacy group offering access to the president in return for a large donation. "Giving or raising $500,000 or more puts donors on a national advisory board for Mr. Obama's group and the privilege of attending quarterly meetings with the president, along with other meetings at the White House," reports the Times. Furthermore, the OFA's reincarnation as an IRS-identified social...

    In his State of the Union address, President Barack Obama proposed raising the minimum wage from $7.25 an hour to $9 an hour. That would be almost a 25 percent increase. Let's look at the president's proposal, but before doing so, let's ask some other economic questions. Are people responsive to changes in price? For example, if the price of cars rose by 25 percent, would people purchase as many cars? Supposing housing prices rose by 25 percent, what would happen to sales? Those are big-ticket items, but what about smaller-priced items? If a supermarket raised its prices by...

Cecilia Tkaczyk as a hypocrite for a fairly basic political activity: holding a fundraiser. Yes, yes: EVERYBODY holds fundraisers. But Tkaczyk, a Duanesburg Democrat, campaigned against ex-Assemblyman George Amedore on the issue of public campaign finance. Amedore, a Rotterdam homebuilder, said he supports greater disclosure for campaigns, but labeled public financing as a “tax.” Tkaczyk got a major boost when, in the final days of her campaign, two downstate Super PACs funded by Jonathan Soros and Facebook co-founder Chris Hughes spent $500,000 to boost her candidacy....

    Anti-gun Sen. Charles Schumer's staff is leaking out to the press the Oklahoma Sen. Tom Coburn is "on the verge" of caving in and agreeing to a ban on private gun sales -- and requiring virtually every American to get the government's approval before exercising their constitutional right to become a gun owner. According to The Washington Post (2/23/13), the remaining sticking point is Coburn's reluctance to require a 4473 for every private transaction. Were this to occur, ATF's practice of going into gun stores and copying all the 4473's -- a practice which has been documented by GOA --...

    Breitbart's Big Government ^ | February 27, 2013 | Joel B. Pollak
    New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg's $2.3 million in campaign spending helped anti-gun radical Robin Kelly win the Democratic primary to replace convicted former Rep. Jesse Jackson, Jr. (D) yesterday. Bloomberg joined Obama political adviser David Axelrod, radical Jeremiah Wright ally Father Michael Pfelger, and left-wing Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL) in helping Kelly defeat former Rep. Debbie Halvorson, who was once the darling of the party's election machine but became a useful target due to her "A" rating from the National Rifle Association.

    Politico ^ | By MANU RAJU and DAVID ROGERS
    Days before the March 1 deadline, Senate Republicans are circulating a draft bill that would cancel $85 billion in across-the-board spending cuts and instead turn over authority to President Barack Obama to achieve the same level of savings under a plan to be filed by March 8. The five- page document, which has the tacit support of Senate GOP leaders, represents a remarkable shift for the party. Having railed against Senate Democrats for not passing a budget, Republicans are now proposing that Congress surrender an important piece of its Constitutional “power of the purse” for the last seven months of...

Bush saying, 'You know, I'm not going to invade Iraq because I can't get the aircraft carriers I need?'" Or even Bill Clinton saying, 'You know, I'm not...
