 Barack nObama's War on Blacks Marches On 
I realize that in today’s America, you can’t comment on Black society if you are not Black. But I’ll say this, as a pasty White dude: If I was a Black man...I’d be wondering right now whose side President nObama is on.New numbers released by Big Brotha show that the unemployment rate among Black teenagers has jumped up to 38%. That’s nearly double the overall teen unemployment rate of 21%. So far, the big plan announced by the rich, half-White progressive who’s running this train wreck is to raise the minimum wage. There are few measures so simple and easy-to-enact which could instantly result in even fewer unskilled, Black teens finding employment. I might start wondering just about now if the President has hidden Klan connections, if I was Black. He’s always been a staunch supporter of abortion, which began as an evil White woman’s crusade to eliminate minorities; and which has been disproportionately effective at that when it comes to Blacks in America. And now, here he is threatening to make sure that unskilled, young workers will be effectively priced out of the jobs market.    http://freedomoutpost.com/2014/02/obamas-war-blacks-marches/
 
 GOP challenger rips ‘crony’ Cantor on immigration 
Dave Brat is challenging Rep. Eric Cantor in a Republican primary — and giving the House majority leader a verbal thrashing on immigration...Brat’s upstart bid against the second highest-ranking House Republican may seem quixotic. But it’s part of a growing national movement to oust GOP leaders who fail conservative litmus tests. Cantor, in Brat’s view, is flunking badly on border security. Indeed, the congressman even applauded President Barack nObama’s State of the Union address outlining a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants. On Friday, Cantor said on the House floor that “immigration reform could be an economic boon to this country.”    http://watchdog.org/127387/gop-cantor-immigration/
 
 ADL honors George W. Bush 
The Anti-Defamation League awarded its highest honor to former President George W. Bush...The ADL presented its America’s Democratic Legacy Award to the former president during a Thursday night gala dinner that opened the its national executive committee meeting in Palm Beach, Fla. “We will never forget, Mr. President, how the vision you laid out of ‘two states, living side by side, in peace and security’ still informs our consciousness and our parlance today,” said the ADL’s national director, Abraham Foxman. “You solidified an unbreakable affinity between two democracies challenged by extremists and terrorists — and an ironclad shared understanding — that security is one of the most important foundations for peace.” Foxman also hailed Bush’s support for immigration reform and his leadership after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.    http://www.timesofisrael.com/adl-honors-george-w-bush/?utm_source=The+Times+of+Israel+Daily+Edition&utm_campaign=64bebbb582-2014_02_08&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_adb46cec92-64bebbb582-54638825
1. The House Republicans - Investigation of Benghazi 
The terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012 was a sobering reminder of the virulent and dangerous threats facing the United States, its interests, and its partners...Shortly after the attack, House Republicans asked the nObama administration to explain to the American people the Administration’s actions leading up to and during the attack itself, as well as the fact that publicly-available information consistently contradicted Administration accounts describing the cause and nature of the attack. Our fight for answers and justice continues today.    http://www.gop.gov/benghazi/
2. Wisconsin Town Bans Display of American Flag 
Campbell, Wisconsin is being sued by a couple of their citizens for a city ordinance that bans the display of the Americans flag on the town’s pedestrian overpass...Over the last few years one of the favorite pastimes of conservative activists has been to gather on overpasses and make sure that commuters using the highways below notice their distaste with the current administration. What is going on here, America?    http://eaglerising.com/4590/wisconsin-town-bans-display-american-flag/
3. A Fry Cook Puts nObama in His Place 
During a recent attempt at trying to once again sell nObamacare as a positive, President nObama ran into a bit of unforeseen trouble...A fry cook by the name of Darnell Summers confronted the President and told him that because of nObamacare he was pushed from full time work to part time. Of course, the President tried to play it off as a minimum wage problem – but being the economics novice that he is, he doesn’t realize that if you raise the minimum wage then prices will also inflate. It’s basic economics. Liberals continue to try to claim that raising the minimum wage will help the poor – but it hasn’t yet. Nor will it in the future.    http://eaglerising.com/4586/fry-cook-puts-obama-place/
4. nObama Admin Force Notre Dame to Comply Mandate 
The nObama administration is not content to force nObamacare on the nation but it’s also not going to relent when it comes to religious businesses, schools and organizations...that want to opt out of complying with the HHS mandate, that compels them to pay for birth control and abortion-causing drugs. The nObama administration is fighting the University of Notre Dame’s request for a reprieve from complying with the HHS mandate and filed papers on Tuesday with the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals opposing the Catholic university’s attempt to get out from under it.    http://www.lifenews.com/2014/02/07/obama-admin-files-papers-to-forc...
5. EPA set to strike key blow against coal? 
Stymied by the GOP's long resistance to cap and trade legislation, the EPA this week began public hearings -- the next step toward a final rule -- to cut carbon dioxide emissions  from new coal plants...The rule would limit emissions to 1100 pounds per Megawatt hour,  a  level the coal industry says is technologically unattainable. Green energy proponents disagree. "Opponents say this will prevent ever building another coal-fired plant in the United States today. They say that the technology is not commercially available. These claims are scare tactics," Rep. HenryWaxman, D-Calif., said in a press conference Thursday outside EPA headquarters in advance of the hearing.  http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2014/02/07/epa-begins-hearings-to-c...

 

 

 

6.  DHS already preparing to implement immigration reform  

The Department of Homeland Security is already preparing to implement immigration reform legislation, according to DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson... “When reform legislation is enacted, DHS must be prepared to implement reform. So to prepare for this potential outcome, I have already directed the deputy director of homeland security to coordinate the process to ensure we are ready to implement the law,” Johnson said Friday at the Woodrow Wilson International Center, during his first major policy address since becoming DHS’s fourth secretary.    http://dailycaller.com/2014/02/07/jeh-johnson-dhs-already-preparing...

 

7. dHillarious Was 'Aware' of Benghazi Security Lapses      

House Republicans Friday released a blistering new report saying former Secretary of State dHillarious Clinton “was certainly aware” of security problems in Libya before the deadly Sept. 11, 2012, attack on a U.S. diplomatic outpost in Benghazi...blasting her and successor dunce John Kerry for failing to hold anyone accountable. And despite the nObama administration’s assertion that review board examination shows the blame for the attack lies with lower-level employees, the House report says Clinton should have been held accountable – and both she and dunce Kerry failed to fire anyone for security breaches that led to the deaths of Stevens, State Department staffer Sean Smith, and former Navy SEALs Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods, the Times reported.

 

 

 

8. Tense When Geraldo Rivera Accuses O’Reilly          

During a tense exchange on Friday’s “The O’Reilly Factor,” Geraldo Rivera accused Bill O’Reilly of stripping President Barack nObama of his “majesty” during his highly-watched Super Bowl interview... “It’s not my job to be a social scientist or please you, Geraldo Rivera, who’s looking more like a cartel member every day,” O’Reilly joked. “My job is to get information. That’s my job. I got it. And I asked him the tough questions that nobody else — no one — has asked him.”    http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2014/02/07/things-get-tense-when-ge...

 

9. Article V: Tearing Up the Talking Points 


The various proposals being pushed by the broad con-con coalition are supported by very powerful men who, as Federal Farmer foresaw, would convince well-meaning friends of liberty that they can change the Constitution for the better...The stick at the end of that desirable carrot is the transfer of power, not from the federal government to the states as those on the right wing of the coalition promise, but from the people to the monied interests paying the bills of the Convention of the States (COS) crowd. Before pulling back the curtain back and exposing some of the wizards pulling the levers of the con-con movement, I want to dismiss some of the COS talking points that may have convinced a few good conservatives to support their dangerous plan.    http://www.thenewamerican.com/usnews/constitution/item/17583-conven...

 

 
10. Chinese Calls For A Global Currency Replacing U.S. Dollar 
The former chief economist at the World Bank, Justin Yifu Lin, is advising the Chinese government that the time has come for a single global currency...Lin, who is also a professor at Peking University, says that the U.S. dollar “is the root cause of global financial and economic crises” and that moving to a “global super-currency” will bring much needed stability to the global financial system. And considering how recklessly the Federal Reserve has been pumping money into the global financial system and how recklessly the U.S. government has been going into debt, it is hard to argue with his logic. Why would anyone want to trust the United States to continue to run things after how badly we have abused our position? The United States has greatly benefited from having the de facto reserve currency of the planet for the past several decades, but now that era is coming to an end. In fact, the central bank of China has already announced that it will no longer be stockpiling more U.S. dollars. The rest of the world is getting tired of playing our game.  Our debt is wildly out of control and we are creating money as if there was no tomorrow. As the rest of the world starts moving away from the U.S. dollar, global power is going to shift even more to the East, and that is going to have very serious consequences for ordinary Americans.Sadly, most Americans don’t even realize what is happening. These comments by a top adviser to the Chinese government should have made front page news all over the nation.    http://freedomoutpost.com/2014/02/top-adviser-chinese-government-ca...

 

 

Who Is ‘Boo’ Burnham?
Peggy Noonan

    It is astonishing and cannot go unremarked that Mississippi’s Gov. Frank “Boo” Burnham, the conservative who won a 2011 landslide, gave an interview Friday in which he demonstrated all that is wrong in American politics—all its division, its intolerance, its ignorance and sickness. Burnham damned and removed from the rolls of the respectable everyone in his state who is pro-choice, who is for some form of gun control, and who supports gay marriage. In a radio interview marked by a tone of smug indignation and self-righteousness, Burnham said “extreme liberals” who are “for abortion, who hate guns, who want homosexuals to marry—if that’s who they are they’re the extreme liberals, they have no place in the state of Mississippi because that’s not who Mississippians are.”

    The problem with this kind of statement, obviously, and whatever your politics and wherever you’re from, is that a great and varied nation cannot function like this, with its own leaders declaring huge swatches of voters anathema and suggesting they should go someplace else. It is an example of the kind of government-encouraged polarization that can do us in. Democracy involves that old-fashioned thing called working it out. You don’t tell people who disagree with you they’d be better off somewhere else. And you don’t reduce them to stereotypes; you address them as fully formed people worthy of respect. You try to persuade them.

    In the days since the interview, left-wing groups have been up in arms, understandably. The mainstream media has descended on the state capital, Jackson, where the governor cancelled appearances and is reportedly huddling with staff.

    Cable TV has been in hyperdrive: “The governor’s own daughter has in the past declared herself to be pro-choice, so I guess he’s locking her out of the mansion” said MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow. “If this is the way they want to win, by dividing Americans—that’s how they like to do it, that’s the old playbook. I think they’ll find this time it won’t work,” said Lawrence O’Donnell. A Democratic strategist on CNN said: “Burnham sounds like he wants it to be like India in 1948, with partition. He’s saying you guys with these beliefs stay here, and you with other beliefs get out.” Another guest, a historian of sociology and demographics at Rice University, noted that a “subtle partition” has been at work in America for decades now. “The ‘big sort,’ as it is known, already has conservatives increasingly living near conservatives and liberals moving to where liberals are.” He said it is damaging and narrowing the Congress, “with liberal Democrats never even knowing conservative Democrats anymore, because they don’t exist. And conservative Republicans barely know any liberal Republicans, because they don’t exist as they once did either. This makes for a more extreme political atmosphere, one that kills the possibility of knowing and caring about those who disagree with you, and therefore negotiating successfully with them.”

    The Burnham story, if you read the papers this holiday weekend, was on the front pages of the New York Times and the Washington Post. Pundits came down hard. The roll of notable columns on RealClearPolitics: “The Tea Party’s Banishment Fantasies,” “The Rise of the Even More Intolerant Right,” and “Out, Damned Liberals.” More to the point, and more dangerously for Burnham, conservative radio stars distanced themselves from his pronouncement and invited on Washington-based establishment voices they knew would trash him as exactly what the Republican Party doesn’t need. “Politics is a game of addition, not subtraction” drawled Haley Barbour, himself a former Mississippi governor, to Laura Ingraham. “Win more with honey than vinegar. This guy is doing something between vinegar and arsenic, and I think Republicans have to say it. America doesn’t need to be more divided, especially by its leaders, whose job is to try to unite it. So I say Boo, boy, put down that jug of bourbon or whatever and apologize.”

    On Sunday Burham suggested his words were taken out of context, “distorted,” and didn’t reflect his real meaning. But the tape of the interview shows a pretty clear context of sneering rejectionism.

*   *   *

    I suppose I should note here, especially for those who haven’t yet Googled Frank “Boo” Burnham and Mississippi, that there is no such person. I made him up to make a point. The governor who made the harshly divisive and dismissive comments about those who disagree with him politically is Andrew Cuomo of New York, who of course is a liberal, not a conservative, and who has not faced anything near the criticism ol’ fictitious Frank “Boo” Burnham would have received if he’d said the equivalent of what Cuomo said.

    Which, in a radio interview with Susan Arbetter of WCNY’s “The Capitol Pressroom,” was this.

    He was speaking about the state Republican Party, and of those of its members who do not support legislation they regard as liberal. “Who are they? Are they these extreme conservatives who are right-to-life, pro-assault-weapon, anti-gay? Is that who they are? Because if that’s who they are and they’re the extreme conservatives, they have no place in the state of New York, because that’s not who New Yorkers are.”

    What Andrew Cuomo said is, truly, a scandal. It’s a scandal if he actually thinks it—that those who hold conservative views on abortion, gun rights and marriage are extreme, anathema and have no place in the state. It is a bigger scandal if he feels he has to talk like this because his party’s going left, its intractable (and extreme) base picks presidents, DeBlasio-ism is the future, and if he wants to appeal he’ll have to be in his comments what he says he decries: extremist.

    Conservatives have been up in arms, but the mainstream press has not. Conservatives: “Wow, he really sees us this way?” Mainstream press: “Sure he does. That’s how we see you, too. Where’s the story?”

    Mr. Cuomo will likely pay no price for this opening of the deepest resources of his mind, or of his political calculations.

The local story, still, is all about Chris Christie.

    Interestingly, of the two close states one governor, Mr. Christie, talks a lot in public. His leadership is very verbal. Mr. Cuomo in contrast normally keeps quiet. Maybe now we know why.

Peggy is making a point of New York's Mayor Andrew Cuomo who is a liberal who is dividing the people of New York. I, myself believe that Cuomo is a communist and only cares about his lively hood and no one else's.

what a bunch of clap-trap this peggy noonan spews forth, this has been the very thing the left has been doing for more than 50 years, i guess when it comes home they don't like it much.

So much for the truth. The communist governor of NY, which would stand by what you mention, would die first in admitting his wrong in the public eye. The age of voting rights at the age of 25? Can you just see the dem going bananas over this.

Comment by Buck Crosby on February 10, 2014 at 2:59pm

   Obviously it is okay for the governor of NEW YORK to make the same statement regarding conservatives , because i haven't heard a peep out of the MSM calling it objectionable .  Well , I am the governor of nowhere , and I want everyone to know that I despise the homosexual agenda and anyone that supports it and feel that all abortionists and their " patients " should face the death penalty for murder of  they that cannot defend themselves , I also feel that every American in the United States between the ages of eighteen and eighty shoul be required to own and know how to use a rifle , a shotgun , and a handgun .  These firearms should be supplied at government expense from the funds intended for murdering unborn or immediately born infants . The vote should be raised to twenty five except for the military troops and veterans because the vast majority of Americans are so ignorant after fifty years of dumbing down and indoctrination by an educational system rife with highly over educated morons calling themselves " educators .
