    In the wake of the 2012 election, it is clear that the demographic challenges facing the Republican Party are serious. The populations that tend to vote Democrat are increasing their share of the electorate, while the share of the electorate that tends to vote Republican is decreasing. With the GOP now falling all over themselves to promote amnesty, this trend threatens to only intensify. On the other hand, the Democrats will for the foreseeable future be reliant on a vote split in minority communities that is basically tribal in nature. There is no way in hell that 100% of blacks...

    The reversal of fortune in the Arab Spring appears to be a surprise to the Obama administration as Cairo now reveals the wolf in wolf's togs of the Moslem Brotherhood. Spoke Eric Trager, Malcolm Hoenlein, Sebastian Gorka in re the Morsi declaration that the judiciary in Egypt is illegitimate because it is dominated by "Mubarak loyalists. This is the same charge that fledgling dictators routinely make when justifying a grab. Stalin called his make-believe threat "wreckers." Washington is acting shocked. There is noise that Morsi is walking back his fiery language of last Friday. Eric Trager tells me that the...

  • Utah Voter Turnout One Of Lowest In Country [Utah in bottom 10 of eligible voters staying home]

    MidUtahRadio.com ^ | Nov. 27, 2012 | Duke Dance
    The number of Utah citizens going to the polls continues to drop. The “Salt Lake Tribune” reports that while election officials point to 80 percent voter turnout across the state, that number only reflects registered voters, and doesn’t include more than half-a-million Utahns who are eligible to vote but not registered. Overall, the number of people in the state who cast ballots in the presidential election was 57 percent. That’s basically the same number as the 2008 election, when Utah placed 9th lowest in the country in voter turnout.
  • EU: [French president] Francois Hollande shows true colours with threat to nationalise ArcelorMittal

    The Telegraph ^ | 11/27/2012 | Ambrose Evans-Pritchard
    Thirty years have passed since French president François Mitterrand launched Europe’s last great wave of nationalisation, seizing the banks, insurance groups, arms makers and steel industry in the culminating debacle of the Collectivist era. The whole world has been living in an era of privatisation ever since. So it seems like a strange step back in time to hear France’s minister of industrial renewal, Arnaud Montebourg, threatening a “temporary public takeover” of ArcelorMittal’s steel operations in the Lorraine plateau – purportedly to save the blast furnaces of Florange and their 2,500 workers, so sacred in the Socialist Party catechism. It...

    November 27, 2012 At the Associated Press, Benghazi Is Just a 'PR Disaster' Tom Blumer Well, if the President himself can call it "a bump in the road," why not? Monday morning at the Associated Press, aka the Administration's Press, presented a story in advance of United Nations ambassador Susan Rice's meeting today with certain Republican senators -- a meeting from which Rice, who engaged in serial falsehood peddling during the weekend after the September 11 Benghazi attack, apparently falsehood-peddling Rice emerged today even worse-off than before. In that story, both the headline and first paragraph of Anne Flaherty's coverage...

    IDF soldiers stationed along the border fence with Gaza say they have received new orders on opening fire, which allow Arabs in Gaza to endanger soldiers and Israeli civilians in nearby communities. "Between 6:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. there are hundreds and possibly thousands of people roaming near the fence, including uniformed Hamas men," a soldier told Channel 2. His identity was disguised to avoid trouble from the IDF. "They crossed the fence several times and went into our forces' positions and destroyed IDF property. The forces cannot push them away from the fence because they may not even fire...

     After more than a week of wrangling over the outcome of its hotly contested party election, the leadership of France’s center-right opposition party on Monday confirmed Jean-François Copé, a right-leaning protégé of former president Nicolas Sarkozy, as the party’s new chief, staring down a last-minute legal challenge from his centrist rival, François Fillon.  The disputed election has sown confusion and embarrassment across France and in particular within the already bruised party, known as the U.M.P. The drawn-out battle, which has played out on live television and via social media networks, follows Mr. Sarkozy’s loss in the presidential race in May,...

    The leader of the Ohio Senate put a stop Tuesday to a bill that would have imposed the most stringent restriction on abortions in the nation. The chamber doesn't plan to vote on the so-called "heartbeat bill" before the end of the legislative session next month, Republican Senate President Tom Niehaus said, citing concerns the resulting law might have been found to be unconstitutional. "I want to continue our focus on jobs and the economy,

    United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice has been catching all kinds of flak from Republicans about her Sunday talk show appearances in which it now looks an awful lot like she willfully participated in purposefully misling the American people about the true nature of the 9/11/12 attacks in Benghazi, Libya that resulted in four American deaths. At her own behest, some of her harshest critics — Senators John McCain, Lindsey Graham, and Kelly Ayotte — agreed to meet with her and hear her out on Tuesday morning, along with acting CIA Director Michael Morell, at a closed-door briefing. Apparently, her self-defense...

The next generation of Marine One choppers used by the White House incumbent would start flying in 2020, replacing the current fleet of 19 Vh-3D Sea Kings and VH-60N Night Hawks manufactured by Sikorsky.
