    That said, he believes the National Popular Vote interstate compact, an agreement between states to award all of their electoral votes to the candidate who wins the popular vote, could succeed as a workaround if we can convince enough state legislatures to pass it in time. So far, it has won approval in 10 states and Washington, D.C.–the agreement will only be enacted once states delivering a total of 270 electoral votes have signed on, and it’s still far from that goal. “That’ll be an easier way to get this done,” Moore says. “People should not despair, thinking, well, the...

    By popular liberty, we mean democracy; by democracy, we mean the democratic form of government; by the democratic form of government, we mean that form of government which vests the sovereignty in the people as population, and which is administered by the people, either in person or by their delegates. By sustaining popular liberty, we mean, not the introduction or institution of democracy, but preserving it when and where it is already introduced, and securing its free, orderly, and wholesome action. By Catholicity, we mean the Roman Catholic Church, faith, morals, and worship. The thesis we propose to maintain is,...

    Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu remains a very important public figure in the eyes of US citizens. The Brookings Institute has published the results of a recent survey in which they were asked to "list the five American or international leaders that you most admire." US President Barack Obama came in first, followed by former President Ronald Reagan. Third place went to Prime Minister Netanyahu, ahead of Pope Francis and Russian President Vladimir Putin. Among Evangelical Christians, Netanyahu is the most popular leader in the world, receiving 16 percent of the votes. Eleven percent chosen Reagan, and 10 percent Obama. Among...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Inside-the-Beltway conservative media people with that Republican Party, they're out there, for example, saying that Trump once wanted single-payer system. "He's not conservative! You can't support Trump." Did you know that he once supported single-payer? From the same people who are funding Obamacare! The same people who give us fake repeal Obamacare votes, the same people who have paid for and continue to help fund Obamacare, say, "Trump once supported single-payer!" They trashed Trump about his wall. "It's not gonna happen! Trump isn't gonna build a wall! He's never gonna get Mexico to pay for the wall....

    Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has isolated Israel diplomatically but she, said Tzipi Livni, will fix that. Speaking to several hundred students in Tel Aviv Wednesday, Livni said that what she called Israel's increasing isolation internationally was a plague of Netanyahu. Netanyahu, she said, only had half the formula needed for diplomatic success. It's not enough to speak loudly and confidently. You have to know how to get the world on your side, to accept Israel's ideas o security and defending its interests. Netanyahu does not know how to do this. Our good relations with the United States and the...

    This flows in perfectly with the Warmist notion that debate is great, and they’re willing to debate anyone anytime anywhere, but when challenged disappear and refuse. Why We’re Shutting Off Our Comments Comments can be bad for science. That’s why, here at PopularScience.com, we’re shutting them off. It wasn’t a decision we made lightly. As the news arm of a 141-year-old science and technology magazine, we are as committed to fostering lively, intellectual debate as we are to spreading the word of science far and wide. The problem is when trolls and spambots overwhelm the former, diminishing our ability to...

    http://www.scpr.org/news/2011/08/08/28124/new-law-would-allow-californias-electoral-college-/ California will have to vote for Romney if he gets the national popular vote. Romney might reverse "Gore" things this time. Looking at the Gallup polls it sometimes seems more likely that Romney wins the popular vote. What a backfire for libs! Why is nobody talking about this?

    A French nonprofit said it was considering making complaints against some Twitter users following an explosion of French-language anti-Semitic messages. SOS Racisme, a Paris-based anti-discrimination organization, made the statement on its website after the phrase UnBonJuif on Oct. 10 became the third most popular hashtag among French Twitter users. Literally meaning a good Jew, it served thousands of Twitter users to enter what the French daily Le Monde termed a competition of anti-Semitic jokes. One Twitter account registered to the username Marcel Leblanc posted a picture of an emaciated Jewish woman taken in a Nazi concentration camp as his or...

    The Popular Resistance Committees (PRC) terror group vowed to retaliate against Israel on Sunday after announcing that two men killed earlier in an IAF air strike were members of the group, the Bethlehem-based Maan news agency reported. The group confirmed that Izz Addin Abu Nuseira, 23, and Ahmad Abu Fatayir, 22, were affiliated with its Nasser Saladin Brigades. Both were killed when the IAF struck targets in the terrorist haven of Gaza for the fourth time in 24 hours Sunday afternoon. The IAF said the targets were part of a terror squad that had fired a rocket at Israel a...

    (CNN) -- A popular female Pakistani singer who defied the Taliban's decree against singing and dancing was shot and killed in northwest Pakistan Monday night, police and hospital officials told CNN. Authorities described the singer's ex-husband as a suspect in the case, and said early indications were that the Taliban were not involved, according to police official Imtiaz Altaf. Ghazala Javed, who recorded scores of songs in her native Pashto language and became a household name among young, progressive ethnic Pashtuns in northwest Pakistan, had just left a beauty salon and was driving home with her father when gunmen on...

    Last Thursdays GOP presidential debate was a doozy. Some of the commercials werent bad, either. My favorite was the ad from the National Popular Vote movement, promoting legislation in the 50 states to guarantee that the people, not the electoral college, choose our president. Mind you, Ive always found it kind of fallacious to worry that our current system elevates popular-vote losers to the presidency: thats because popular votes cast in a state-by-state contest for 270 electoral votes do not reflect the national will. Rather, they reflect the results of a competition in which candidates tailor their messages and deploy...

    By Jacquerie Wake Up AmericaWhile the lamestream media holds public attention on GOP candidate rivalries, a "progressive" strategy is underway to eliminate the role of the states in electing a U.S. President. By transferring electoral votes to a "national popular vote" this "Compact" would usurp the role of the states as safeguarded by our Constitution. In doing so, it could also neutralize Obama's critics -- totally. This may be the most vital - and time sensitive -exposeWAMhas ever uncovered and shared! And it's happening now, under the radar, with the general public in the dark. This "ultimate vote fraud" is...

    Golden State legislature says it will give its states electoral votes to the national popular vote winner. Providing a significant boost to an effort to end-around the Electoral College, California Gov. Jerry Brown signed legislation on Monday that would award the Golden States 55 electoral votes to the presidential candidate garnering the most votes nationwide. California, which has more electoral votes than any other state in the nation, is the eighth state to join the National Popular Vote compact, an effort to end the Electoral College's role in picking presidents.

    House Republicans are looking to repeal the healthcare reform law and replace it with one of their own early next year without interrupting two popular parts the administration has already begun to implement. They include a mandate that bars discrimination of pre-existing conditions and a stipulation that allows young people to remain on their parents' insurance plans until age 26. Incoming Republican Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) said Monday that they would do this by passing a GOP healthcare bill at the same time as repeal efforts are underway. Speaking to more than 100 students at American University, Cantor said,...
  • Barack Obama's dumb 'Daily Show' Jon Stewart appearance and the President's diminishing brand

    10/27/2010 9:52:00 AM PDT · by LottieDah · 30 replies
    President Barack Obama should make the most of his "Daily Show" appearance on Wednesday night - charming the pants off Jon Stewart and the crowd, as he did when he showed up there two years ago. It's a terrific show, Stewart is a great interviewer and Obama makes good television. Then, the President should cancel all future trivial media appearances. While they may have kept him personally popular, in broad terms they've degraded the Obama brand. Obama's handlers were supposed to be smarter than this. They were supposed to use his celebrity strategically to advance his agenda. Instead, they've been...
