    Speaking at the press conference after the EU-US summit yesterday the US President wrongly suggested that Georgia "is not currently on a path to NATO membership". In fact the country has been on the path to membership since 2008. At the North Atlantic Council in Bucharest that year the attending Heads of State and Government agreed the following statement: "NATO welcomes Georgia’s Euro-Atlantic aspirations for membership in NATO. We agreed today that they will become members of NATO." Former Georgian Ambassador to London Giorgi Badridze, told Breitbart London: "President Obama's remarks could hardly have come at a worse time –...

    After four years of pretending there is no jihad against the free world, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton blurted out the truth during her testimony on the Benghazi jihad massacre Wednesday: “We now face a spreading jihadist threat,” she said, adding: “We have to recognize this is a global movement.” We do? Yet the Obama administration has for years steadfastly and repeatedly denied both that there was a jihadist threat at all and that it was a global movement. So far has the Obama administration been from acknowledging that there was a jihad threat that less than two months into...
  • '46% in U.S. don't pay taxes' only half the story

    San Francisco Chronicle ^ | 8/8/11 | Joe Garofoli, Chronicle Political Writer
    For some California Tea Party conservatives, it has become a favorite statistic: Nearly half of Americans - 46 percent - don't pay taxes. The number is used to back up their claim that if that many people don't pay taxes, why should the wealthiest individuals pay more? It is accurate in a sense - 46 percent of U.S. households aren't expected to pay federal income taxes this year. "But most of those people do pay federal taxes" of some sort, such as payroll taxes, said Roberton Williams, a senior fellow at the Tax Policy Center, a center-left Washington think tank,...

    LOS ANGELES – Sen. Barbara Boxer returned on Thursday to a tried and tested campaign strategy by painting her opponent as an extreme anti-abortion conservative who is out of touch with California voters. The three-term Democrat used a rally at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel to claim that GOP nominee Carly Fiorina would become a sure Senate vote to overturn Roe v. Wade. "Make no mistake about it," Boxer said alongside actresses Maria Bello, Amy Brenneman and Alfre Woodard and Reps. Jane Harman, Diane Watson and Laura Richardson. "A woman's right to choose is on the ballot here in California this...

    ...we are indeed fortunate to this point that the people who want to kill us are, in general, a little bit dumber than we are. This has accorded us a certain measure of safety. They busy themselves detonating small charges in their private parts or leaving the keys to their "other car" in automobiles (to which they hold title) laden with unexplodable devices idling by the curb all of which amounts to the equivalent of a set of Mapquest directions to their homes. We, on the other hand, have distracted ourselves with pastimes fit only for overeducated, self-important, arrogant imbeciles:...

    In her first testimony before Congress back in March of this year, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano laid the groundwork for the Obama administration's new "politically correct" Homeland Security doctrine. Without ever mentioning "terrorist" or "terrorism" during her testimony, Secretary Napolitano put forth the politically correct term for those two words: "man-caused disaster." Defining the term as "nuance" to the German news site Spiegel Online, Secretary Napolitano further stated, "...it demonstrates that we want to move away from the politics of fear toward a policy of being prepared for all risks that can occur." The "T"-word has been off limits...

    WASHINGTON -(Dow Jones)- U.S. President Barack Obama on Friday again condemned the Iranian government's violent attacks on demonstrators, but said it's too soon to say whether those actions will hinder U.S.-Iran talks aimed at halting Iran's development of nuclear weaponry. "We are still waiting to see how the situation in Iran plays out," Obama said in response to questions at a joint White House press conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

    “Now, some have suggested that this represents a reversal on my part,” President Obama declared last week in the soaring rotunda of the National Archives, a snippet of self-defense tucked into a far-reaching philosophical address on terrorism and the rule of law. “They should look at the record.” Mr. Obama was speaking, in particular, of his decision to revive George W. Bush’s practice of trying terrorism suspects in military commissions. True, Mr. Obama said, he fought Mr. Bush on the commissions. But, he went on, he had always said that with reforms he would support them. With “meaningful due process”...

    This week, Barack Obama's challenge is to select a running mate who's young, hip, and whose accomplishments in life don't overshadow Obama's. Allow me to suggest Kevin Federline. The only thing we can be sure of is that Obama will choose someone who is the polar opposite of all his advisers until now. In other words, it will be a very, very white male who was probably proud of his country even before being chosen as Obama's running mate. Obama's got a lot of ground to make up following that performance last weekend at the Saddleback presidential forum with pastor...

    Poor old John Edwards. Now the victim of scandal and looking more than ever like the charlatan he always was to us non-believers, he has had the additional bad luck to see his political career crash and burn at the very moment where his campaign theme about the "two nations" seems to have been vindicated. Of course he was wrong about what the two nations were. Rich and poor are ever more fluid categories, which is one of the lessons of this and other economic downturns. Many of those who were rich are now, at least, much less rich, while...

    I guess it was only a matter of time before this happened: The Left is now blaming President Bush for the weather. Specifically they're claiming that the current heat wave is a result of the global warming President Bush just hasn't done enough to stop. Whereas the consensus in the scientific community seems to be leaning towards an alternate explanation: It's summertime. Oh, but this is a different kind of heat, the Left insists. It's...hotter, somehow. (At least they aren't claiming it's a dry heat). But if the current heat wave bolsters the theory of global warming favored by noted...

    Speaking out of both sides of one's mouth is an occupational hazard, if not an occupational necessity, for politicians seeking elective office in competitive races. It's not a pretty sight, and it supports a cynicism about democratic politics that is unbecoming. Catering to such cynicism, the leftist writer Garry Wills used to advise college audiences, "Vote for your enemy--he has no one to sell out to but you." The political debate over the use of the Senate's filibuster rule to torpedo President Bush's judicial nominees has triggered a series of reversals and pratfalls that support the low-comedy version of democratic...

    'NUISANCE' NUANCE: KERRY'S TERROR PROBLEM October 16, 2004 --     Regarding Dick Morris' column, a bee sting is a nuisance ("'Nuisance' Nonsense," Opinion, Oct. 12). A toothache is a nuisance. A hangover is a nuisance. Liberals are a nuisance. But terrorism is not a nuisance. God help us if John Kerry is elected. Ray Monahan Howell, N.J.     I don't see how anyone can consider terrorism a nuisance, as Kerry evidently does. The Khobar Towers, the USS Cole bombing, the first World Trade Center bombing and all the other attacks were great tragedies, not nuisances. What does...

    For all the horror stories we’ve heard about euthanasia in recent years, there are still many people who think of it as “mercy killing.” Those people need to take a long, hard look at what’s happening in the Netherlands right now. It’s very difficult to find anything merciful about what Dutch doctors are doing to children and infants. According to Wesley J. Smith in the Daily Standard, Groningen University Hospital in the Netherlands now officially allows doctors to euthanize children under twelve, “if doctors believe their suffering is intolerable or if they have an incurable illness.” That includes non-fatal illnesses...

    Although it ran a scant 13 episodes, the western series ‘Johnny Nuance’ still prompts fond memories among baby boomers who followed the exciting weekly adventures of the treaty-slinging frontier diplomat. Featuring former matinee idol Lash LaDouche in the title role, the series debuted on CBS on March 4, 1958 as a mid-season replacement for the low rated ‘Walter Cronkite Presents Hackleigh Rich Tobacco Flavor Playhouse.” After its brief run, it was replaced by the SciFi classic ‘Enigma Sector.’ Lash LaDouche went on to star in several other short-lived CBS series, including the 1964 sitcom ‘I Married a Hag,’ the 1968...

    Kerry is a meticulous, deliberative decision maker, always demanding more information, calling around for advice, reading another document - acting, in short, as if he were still the Massachusetts prosecutor boning up for a case. "He attacks the material, he questions things, he tries to get it right," said Richard C. Holbrooke, the former U.N. ambassador and an adviser to Kerry. His habit of soliciting one more point of view prompted one close adviser to say he had learned to wait until the last minute before weighing in: Kerry, he said, is apt to be most influenced by the last...

    On the heels of Iraqi Interim Prime Minister Allawi’s address to the United States Congress, John Kerry, who did not see it necessary to attend the speech or personally meet with Mr. Allawi, felt it necessary to insult him and all but call him a liar, as well as continue to claim Iraq is an abject failure. In a press conference afterward, where John Kerry again stated he had a plan for Iraq but didn’t tell us what it is, he repeatedly bashed the president and misrepresented the facts on the ground. Note this particular exchange between a reporter and...

    While reading the Kerry material presented on FR and elsewhere, I've started to notice mentions of Kerry being in a funk for extended periods of time. One reference mentioned Kerry staying with him for about a week after a campaign loss and Kerry not saying a word the whole time. Another story alluded to a converation with Kerry and Miss "T" in which he admitted seeing a therapist for the angst as he put it. I think there's another aspect to Kerry that's not common knowledge. If it's true, it can be pieced together. FR is the place to do...

    Outsourcing has been a hot topic as of late. It's been made even hotter by the fact that 2004 is a Presidential election year. The candidate making the most claims on the dangers of outsourcing has been John F. Kerry. He's mentioned it so much that he might as well trademark the phrase "American Jobs". It was part of his convention speech where called for the closing of tax loopholes "that reward companies for shipping our jobs overseas. Instead, we will reward companies that create and keep good-paying jobs right where they belong -- in the good old U.S.A. We...

    Nicholas Goldberg says that Israel and the US see the world "without nuance." In a recent commentary in the Sunday Los Angeles Times, Goldberg takes Israel -- along with the big Satan -- to task for their inability "to make distinctions among terrorists." An example of the sort of nuance that Goldberg thinks Israelis and Americans are unable to see is that while one Hamas thug, Abdulaziz Rantisi, is "loud, bitter and fiery," another -- the recently departed Hamas "spiritual leader" Sheik Ahmed Yassin -- had a voice that was "soft, almost childlike."  One might be tempted to believe that...
