Send in the Clowns by Michael Goodell http://www.mlgoodell.webs.com I’m so glad I gave up on America after the last election. Otherwise I would look at the world today and wonder whether to cry, run away and hide, or simply stick my head in the oven. However, since the last election, I am able to view this vast diorama of human suffering and decay with sang-froid. | Read More »
Way to bury the lead there, Wall Street Journal. Forget various Democrats whining about where that sweet, sweet campaign contribution money is going: this is a bit more pressing. [Dick] Harpootlian said he visited Joe Biden, the other most prominent potential 2016 contestant, in the White House about a month ago and told the vice president he would support him if he decides to run.
The mainstream media is very adept at highlighting the alleged rift in the Republican Party, but they turn a blind eye and a deaf ear towards a rift in the Democratic Party. Despite the apparent anointing of Hillary Clinton as the 2016 Democratic nominee for President, there are serious issues within that party. A Clinton candidacy will only make those problems more transparent as a | Read More »
Relatively Speaking by Michael Goodell http://www.mlgoodell.webs.com From the front page of today’s Wall Street Journal: U.S. officials believe members of Hezbollah, the militant group backed by Iran, are smuggling advanced, guided-missile systems into Lebanon from Syria piece by piece to evade a secretive Israeli air campaign designed to stop them. The moves illustrate how both Hezbollah and Israel are using Syria’s civil war as cover | Read More »
Under the leadership of Harry Reid, and with the blessing of President Obama, Senate Democrats actually nuked the filibuster.
According to Chris Cillizza, Sean Sullivan, the issue that Reid saw as important enough to do something he said would change the U.S. Senate forever is the confirmation of three nominees to the U.S. Court of Appeals – D.C. Circuit:
This time around, Democrats have pushed three nominees to the crucial D.C. circuit court, which handles most of the critical cases on interpreting federal law. The Rs say the court — which tilts toward GOP-appointed judges at the moment — doesn’t need any more judges. And McCain’s gang of GOP senators agreed, blocking all 3 of Obama’s nominees.
Some see these nominees as an effort to pack the court after a series of decisions Obama did not like.
The issue was similar last July when Reid and company convinced the Republicans to capitulate on President Obama’s terrible nominees to the National Labor Relations Board. In tricking the Republicans into approving numerous nominees the Democrats promised they were “not touching judges.”Read More »
Good job there, Mr. Vice President: It was shortly before 1 a.m. Nov. 2 and Renisha McBride was involved in an accident with a parked vehicle in Detroit. More than two hours later and six blocks away, she was shot in the face by a man who told police he thought someone was breaking into his Dearborn Heights home. The 54-year-old homeowner, according to police, | Read More »
The Portland Press Herald is reporting that VP (possible 2016 Presidential wannabe) Joe Biden will be part of a fundraiser for New Hampshire Governor Maggie Hassan. While the press will focus on this rite of potential presidential primary passage–fundraising for Marquee names in the Granite State’s political theater–we should consider more pressing points. The home where the event is to take place is that of | Read More »
We’re still a ways out from 2016, sure, but that didn’t stop Quinnipiac from running a poll in Iowa to gauge popularity of early standouts. The leaders in the poll were New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and Former First Lady, U.S. Senator and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, each getting 41 percent in the recent poll. Other names tossed out there were Wisconsin Governor Scott | Read More »
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid can dish it out, but he can’t take it. Harry Reid was Senate Democratic Whip when George W. Bush became president. Under him, the Senate Democrats mounted an unprecedented filibuster campaign against Bush’s judicial nominees. According to The Heritage Foundation’s Todd Gaziano, the average number of days a Court of Appeals nominee waited for final Senate action grew from | Read More »
Quiet, but deadly. The decision to keep U.S. personnel in Benghazi with substandard security was made at the highest levels of the State Department by officials who have so far escaped blame over the Sept. 11 attack, according to a review of recent congressional testimony and internal State Department memos by Fox News. Nine months before the assault that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three | Read More »
“Shot and mortally wounded.” …And, behind him and to the right? That kid with the glasses? Yeah, him. Take a gander at 0:14: he is giving The Look to Biden.
Background: in what may end up being the most epic Joe Biden Opens His Mouth EVER the Vice President told a Facebook ‘town hall’ hosted by Parenting Magazine that he had advised his wife that her proper firearms strategy in case of home invasion should be to… get a shotgun, brandish it, and empty the barrels into the air… Hold up! Wait, wait, I know | Read More »
Last week the Vice President and the Obama administration decided to go back in time to politicize the Virginia Tech massacre. Their goal was not to provide an honest portrayal of the events nor to find real solutions to the problem based upon careful analysis. They simply hoped to advance their gun confiscation agenda by standing on the graves of dead college students. Ironically, an | Read More »
