  • Ben Rhodes: Heck yeah, the U.S. is still planning to take Syrian refugees

    Skip to 2:15 to watch Rhodes, responding to the news that one of the Paris bombers washed up onshore in Greece just six weeks ago, claim that it’s full speed ahead on the U.S. accepting 10,000 Syrian refugees of its own. The Democratic nominee-in-waiting said on Saturday night that she wants 65,000(!) refugees here, albeit “only if we have as careful a screening and vetting process as we can imagine.” That’s a mighty bold move by Democrats given that a majority of Americans already opposed admitting refugees back in September, with that number sure to rise now in the wake...

    Students at the University of Oxford will hold a demonstration to “demand the glorifying statue of Cecil Rhodes – a brutal, racist colonial oppressor – be taken down” from a historic, grade one listed building. The protest has been organised by the #RhodesMustFallOxford campaign, set up in July, which describes itself as “a movement for the decolonisation of the curriculum, institutional memory and culture, and overall educational space at Oxford.” The students, at one of the best universities in the world, claim to be “oppressed.”

    Until an earthquake in 226 BCE knocked it down, the Colossus of Rhodes, a 98-foot-high iron and bronze statue of the Greek god Helios, sat near the harbor of Rhodes, Greece, for 54 years. Now, a plan put forth by a small team of scientists seeks to rebuild the ancient statue and boost tourism and local jobs in the process. The plan calls for a a new statue that's way taller than the ancient one. At 400 feet tall, the new Helios would be nearly four times the height of the original. The proposal also includes an interior library, museum,...

    But the team stresses they do not want to build a replica of the original bronze structure of a warrior standing over the entrance of the ancient city’s harbour. Instead, they want to construct a 150-metre tall “reimagining” of the wonder, based on the ambitions and vision of the original 2200-year-old monument. They want to crowdsource its funding through the internet. It will still be a colossal statue. It will still be a lighthouse. But it will we sheathed in a bronze-coloured skin that doubles as solar panels. The team says they aim to “put back on the map the...

    In March, an investigation by ProPublica and Gawker revealed that a secret spy network that was not on the State Department payroll, run by longtime Clinton aide Sidney Blumenthal, was funneling intelligence about the crisis in Libya directly to the Secretary of States private account starting before the Benghazi attack. Now the WEEKLY STANDARD has learned that Tyler Drumheller, the former chief of the CIAs clandestine service in Europe who was working directly with Blumenthal as a member of Clintons spy network, was concurrently working as a consultant to CBS News and its venerable news program 60 Minutes.

Five days after the attack, then-Ambassador Susan Rice told the world that the attack was not pre-planned and was a spontaneous reaction to a YouTube video. That was not true, that was not even close to being true, OReilly said. According to a White House memo obtained by Judicial Watch, Ben Rhodes sent an email to prep Rice about the attack, listing the following two goals:

    If the Bergdahl uproar feels creepily reminiscent of the Benghazi uproar, or the Syrian "red line" uproar, or the choose-your-own- Obama -foreign-adventure uproar, it's because they all have a common denominator. This is what happens when political hacks formally take over foreign policy. It's the "formal" point that bears some meditation. Barack Obama isn't the first president to make foreign-policy decisions on the basis of domestic political calculations. He does, however, win the distinction of being the first president to utterly disregardto treat with contemptthe institutions and procedures that were designed to help the commander in chief insulate the serious...

Simply, the Obama administration’s narrative — that al-Qaeda was on the run, that Hosni Mubarak had to go, and that the Arab Spring was a good thing — was proven false when four brave Americans were killed. Because the administration was a slave to their own narrative, rather than aggressively fighting al-Qaeda, rather than recognizing the $50 billion investment in Mubarak’s stability, and rather than realizing that the upheaval they sponsored in the Middle East empowered Muslim Brotherhood radicals, they lied repeatedly...

    <p>Reporting from Washington A president governs in prose, but every now and then some poetry slips through.</p> <p>Speaking in West Virginia after an explosion killed 29 coal miners, President Obama talked about the victims: "Most days they would emerge from the dark mine, squinting at the light. Most days, they would emerge, sweaty, dirty, dusted with coal. Most days, they would come home. Most days, but not that day."</p>

    Why He Matters That combination of grand rhetoric and incisive policy solutions is a hallmark of speeches Rhodes drafts for Obama. As Obamas foreign policy writer in the White House, Rhodes helps craft the campaigns message on hot-button topics like the Iraq war, military intervention in Pakistan and whether to sit down with rogue foreign leaders without precondition. The 30-something Rhodes, who contributed to the Iraq Study Group and the 9/11 Commission reports, helped guide the direction of the 2008 presidential campaigns Middle East policy. Since joining the administration, Rhodes has crafted several key and delicate foreign policy speeches, including...

    Another empty suit in a key Obama Administration policy position was in the news today, as another Obama policy fails.In reading an article today on Russia saying "nyet" to refined petroleum sanctions on Iran, I was reminded of Ben Rhodes, about whom I have written before as part of the coterie of Lee Hamilton acolytes that serve in key positions in the Obama foreign policy and national security apparatus. Rhodes serves as the Deputy National Security Adviser (another Hamiltonian is Denis McDonough, the National Security Council Chief of Staff. Hamilton's role in this administration has received very little attention,...

    Dusty Rhodes, a light-hitting, hard-drinking outfielder who was at his best on baseball's biggest stage, died of cardiopulmonary arrest Wednesday at a Las Vegas hospital. He was 82. Rhodes, whose left-handed swing was tailor-made for the short right-field porch at the New York Giants' home in the Polo Grounds, never batted more than 244 times in seven big-league seasons and had a career average of just .253. But in his only World Series, in 1954, he delivered a game-winning pinch-hit home run in the 10th inning of Game 1, a game-tying pinch-hit single in Game 2 and a two-run pinch...

    I'd been tipped off that KNUV 1190 AM, formerly the flagship station of the liberal Nova M radio network, and briefly, the home of Nova M's successor network, On Second Thought, had been padlocked. So I had to see for myself, as On Second Thought's driving force, Mike Newcomb, was apparently doing his afternoon show today as usual. At least, that's the way it sounded to someone who's not a regular listener of Newcomb's show. But as you can see from the photo above, 1190 AM's offices are indeed chained up. The security guard for the building told me that...

Moments ago, Gaulin sent this letter to your Radio Equalizer: Randi Rhodes on-air home for less than a year will shut its doors.
