  • Human Ego Stands in the Way of Saving America

    Back-biting trolls out to destroy either candidate and their camps, while tearing apart conservative media, are eating us all alive Ego (gargantuan), political human ego, stands in the way of saving America. It was ego that hanged noble America in 2008, when a man whose unstoppable ego to take down America far surpassed any intent of serving the people who elected him. If anything that should have been learned in the interminably long past eight years, it should have been to beware of oversized, leaning toward crazed ego.

    Even Trump's most trusted advisors didn't expect him to fare this well. Almost a year ago, recruited for my public relations and public policy expertise, I sat in Trump Tower being told that the goal was to get The Donald to poll in double digits and come in second in delegate count. That was it. The Trump camp would have been satisfied to see him polling at 12% and taking second place to a candidate who might hold 50%. His candidacy was a protest candidacy.-snip-I don't think even Trump thought he would get this far. And I don’t even know that...

    The All-Seeing, All-Knowing “I” is what both politicians, Obama and Trump envision themselves Celebrity is the “trump” card this presidential go-round just as it was in 2008 and 2012. The question is, have we learned nothing from the media-driven political process? Those of you who will deny that this is precisely what is occurring best look at the trends and stats. Donald Trump is a celebrity no matter how much someone wants to paint him as just a successful businessman. Because of his name recognition and over-the-top commentary made during the past years, more people are familiar with his on-camera...

    Townhall.com ^ | August 27, 2015 | Derek Hunter
    On paper, Donald Trump offers a lot as a candidate. He’s able to command a room, he is decisive, confident, unapologetic for what he believes, doesn’t need to kiss rings and make promises to raise money, and he stands up to an activist media. But campaigns aren’t run on paper, they’re run in life. And in life, Donald Trump appears to have an out-of-control ego in need of constant feeding, which is coupled with no ability to control himself. Nothing about Donald Trump’s life requires constraint. Worth somewhere in the neighborhood of $10 billion, there is nothing he can’t afford...

Here’s what Trump said about Obama’s birth certificate when asked in a recent interview by Anderson Cooper on CNN: Cooper asked: “Do you accept that President Obama was born in the United States?” “I really don’t know,” Trump responded. “I don’t know why he wouldn’t release his records; but, honestly, I don’t want to get into it.” Before shifting to a different topic…Trump rebutted with a few facts on the subject. “Do you know that Hillary...

    Embattled Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump hit back hard on Sunday at critics who say he went too far with caustic comments about a U.S. television news anchor, insisting no apology was necessary and defending his relations with women. "I've had such an amazing relationship with women in business. They are amazing executives. They are killers. They are phenomenal," Trump said on ABC's "This Week." The billionaire and television personality, who leads the polls in the race for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination, appeared on Sunday news shows to rebut the latest wave of outrage triggered by his off-the-cuff talk....

    Presidential candidate Donald Trump sought to redirect incoming fire at rival Republican Jeb Bush, saying that Bush has a "huge" problem with women and he is by far the better candidate with that demographic. Trump excoriated Bush for saying "I'm not sure we need half a billion dollars for women's health issues" at a speech in Tennessee last week. Bush later said he misspoke, and he was only questioning the federal funding that goes to Planned Parenthood. "This is worse than what Romney did when he blew 47 percent of the vote with his ridiculous statements," Trump said, referencing a...

    To understand the rise of Donald Trump, you’d do well not to fixate on the fact that he’s running under the Republican banner. During Thursday night’s Fox News debate, Trump made it clear that failing to secure the GOP nomination wouldn’t stop him from exploring an independent candidacy. And honestly, he’d be crazy not to. Trump is very far from a Republican regular. He represents an entirely different phenomenon, one that bears little resemblance to garden-variety American conservatism. That’s why Republicans shouldn’t fool themselves into believing that one lackluster debate performance will send him packing. Go to almost any European...

    Establishing more authority to government and himself. It is, as usual, all about ego. Having written on this president’s impervious stance against carbon dioxide, the most necessary component in producing oxygen and keeping the earth green, it’s redundant to say much more. However, as Obama, on Monday, installed yet another regulation to cut CO2 by 32% only one conclusion can be reached…the president is attempting to gut more than the economy, he’s bent on killing life on earth. Obama had already proven his lack of respect for human life while an Illinois state senator, cowardly voting “present” on a bill...

    The most poisonous "-ism" now infecting Ferguson, Missouri, is not virulent racism. It's viral narcissism. Over the past two weeks, the impoverished St. Louis County suburb has become a magnet for self-absorbed publicity seekers of all colors and agendas. Perhaps the most repulsive species on display in Ferguson is the Journalisto Vanitatis. This breed of egotistical East-Coast reporters can be easily identified by its ever-present appendages: a smartphone and smart glasses. For the J.V., the story is all about "me, me, me!"

Some of the illustrations on some of the stamps in the series, the spokesman explained, feature activities that some might not consider safe — like doing a cannonball into a swimming pool.

Nowhere in his statements does he mention a policy disagreement with the Attorney General. The proper venue for challenging a fellow Republican is during a nomination contest. Lt.

    President Obama is so wrapped up in being Obama, he can’t see that not having a plan for the next for years is a problem when you’re running for re-election. During the final debate on foreign policy, Obama oozed with revisionist history of his record and added a theatrical element to his delivery, glaring at hole through Romney. Meant to be intimidating I’m sure, Romney responded to Obama’s stares and interruptions with calm and confidence, leaving Romney looking like the only adult in the room, as someone commented to me. Romney described the debate and Obama’s re-election campaign well: “Attacking...

    As much of the far-left mainstream media continues to panic over Mr. Obama’s abject failure of a first debate, they deliberately avoid doing their jobs and reporting the real reason for his totally expected performance. Said one Obama-fawning editor from The Atlantic magazine, “…The president appeared snippy, his eyes flashing angrily during those infrequent moments when he looked at his opponent, his lips pursed and upturned when he looked down…There was, in the expression, a mixture of annoyance, impatience, and dislike” The fact is that Mr. Obama was “snippy.” His expression did have a “mixture of annoyance, impatience, and dislike.”...

Terry Branstad of Iowa, questioned his viability, Mr. Gingrich made plans to deliver a foreign policy speech in Los...

Rick Tyler, Gingrich's spokesman, said he, campaign manager Rob Johnson and senior strategists were among those who had resigned. 'When the campaign and the candidate disagree on the path, they've got to part ways,' Mr Tyler told the Washington Post this afternoon.

Fushek has accused Bishop Thomas J. Olmsted of Phoenix of wishing for his death and forcing him out of the Church because of a personal grudge. In his new memoir “The Unexpected Life,” he defends his decision to found a non-Catholic “worship center,” which caused...

In “Revival: The Struggle for Survival Inside Obama’s White House,” MSNBC analyst Richard Wolffe, a writer sympathetic to the president, reports the prosaic backroom details of the White House struggles from early this year, but occasionally stumbles upon an off-the-cuff revelation that’s much more interesting. One staffer was conspicuously overweight.

    "That's all right, all of you know who I am," President Obama joked last week when the presidential seal fell off his podium during a speech in Pittsburgh. Even though the incident made headlines for no discernible journalistic reason, it was noteworthy as a succinct example of Obama's arrogance problem. Rather than make a self-deprecating joke, he opted instead to make a self-inflating one, as if to say that the title mattered less than the man. The good news is that it's apparently not racist to call Obama arrogant anymore. Not long ago, Keith Olbermann and other gargoyles on the...

    PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. – Dressed in his Sunday red shirt, Tiger Woods bowed his head and sat in silence in front of his locker. He was supposed to be on the ninth hole at The Players Championship. In another stunning twist for someone whose life used to be so predictable, Woods withdrew suddenly with neck pain that he fears might be a bulging desk.

    Much attention has been given to President Obama's persistent use of "I" when giving speeches to sell his administration's agenda. Is he taking responsibility -- or, as his critics say, is he still in campaign mode? FoxNews.com is tracking the president's speeches all this month and will report back after each to see whether The "I's" Have It. Today's Speech: Opening remarks before town hall-style meeting at the University of Tampa in Tampa, Fla.

    There's a story of an ex hausted tenor at La Scala who, facing repeated cries of "Encore," responded that he couldn't go on. A man rose in the audience to say, "You'll keep singing until you get it right." That seems to be the defining principle of the Obama administration -- whose response to every problem, every setback, every hiccup and challenge has been, simply, "more Obama." Indeed, for people who aren't sticklers for political jargon, it will be a shock that last night was Obama's first State of the Union Address, since it was his third formal address to...

    Any speech from President Obama is guaranteed to include numerous references to himself, blaming George Bush, and creating straw men. Wednesday night's State of the Union was no different. By my count from watching the speech, here is a numbers breakdown of Obama's first State of the Union:

    The American Thinker ^ | December 31, 2009 | Beverly Gunn
    I have heard many folks openly observe that all members of Congress must live in a different world than we live in. I have pondered this oft heard statement and I must concur. I have a direct sense and understanding of these, now particularly odious folks, with a story of life as we knew it around the Beltway of Washington. Back in the late 1980's we were assigned to the D.C. area due to military posting. It was a cultural shock to the entire family. In part, the disparity was due to having lived in Germany for four wonderful years...

    PRESIDENT OBAMA was too busy to attend the celebrations in Germany this week marking the fall of the Berlin Wall 20 years ago. But he did appear by video, delivering a few brief and bloodless remarks about how the wall was "a painful barrier between family and friends" that symbolized "a system that denied people the freedoms that should be the right of every human being." He referred to "tyranny," but never identified the tyrants -- he never uttered the words "Soviet Union" or "communism," for example. He said nothing about the men and women who died trying to cross...
