Obamster "warns" Benjamin not to release details of the deal he is pushing for .

Yet Obamster had  no problem leaking Israel's plans to attack Iran such as releasing the deal to use Khazakastan ( I think) as a base to launch a strike.

It is never a problem what Obamster does but how dare anyone cross him when he does the exact same to anyone else.

Yet the MSM surrounds the sleeze ball in chief.

Unbelievable.  That wart hog face again.  The one with his anti-Semite daughter on MSLSD.   To think he was not given a job with Obama because he was viewed as anti-Israel.

They thought he would cost them a few Jewish voters.   

What a laugh.  We just got Obama.   And the Jewish Democrats are silent.   Indeed many are lashing out at Netenyahu.   Not Obama who is selling down the radioactive Iranian freeway but the one guy who is trying to prevent the possibility of another holocaust.

They claim the Zionists don't speak for them on ads in between Mark Levins radio show.   That they are Jews who support their country and their President.   They are kidding themselves.  They are not Jews.  They are Democrats.  They would be trashing the President if he was a Republican.

Kind of bizarre that Drudge reports Bush had "supporters" bused in to CPAC from DC.   One can wonder if all these "supporters" were people who had jobs with a Bush at some point and are vying for jobs with this Bush now.  

I was wondering why he got significant (though not huge) audience applause at times during the actually very good interview by Sean Hannity.  

Crafty, thanks for your always logical and reasoned thoughts.  Let me explain why I am against J.  Not because I don't like him.  He and is family are wonderful people, very smart, appear to be very honest, and are doing their best and what they think is right throughout their public service.   Yet they are inadequate to confront the "transformation" the liberals are doing to the United States, and actually the world.  Obama is just the "front man".

Let me explain:

"I could live with a compromise that AFTER THE BORDERS ARE CONTROLLED"

I used to think this way too.   I recall Doug once calling me a rhino some years ago.   He was probably right.   Then I learned.   The problem with compromise it is only a temporary rear guard action the delays but never rolls back the progressive onslaught.   It won't stop till the concept of country, sovereignty, borders, and real free will is gone.
One world nation under the new God, which will be ONE world GOVERNMENT with total control over every aspect of humanity on this planet.  Oh, they will say representatives are elected and it is some sort of Democracy but can anyone not imagine the totalistic control government and their favorite companies and people will have over all of us.  There already is quite a bit of that now particularly with this tyrant in the WH but just imagine what it will be like then.  Listening to that NYU professor (Jeffrey Sachs)  give his talk at my nephews graduation awakened me up to this goal of the liberal elite.  Ironically I was the only one of my clan there who even realized what he was saying.   My nephew who now works with Bobby Jindal thought the speech was not political!  Wow.  This is important to me when I think of the prospect of another Bush.   A  Bush will not turn back this onslaught to any real measure.   Yeah they may put in a few fingers to plug up  the leaks in the dam but will not really rebuild the dam and the water it holds.  

J Bush will govern the same way his brothers did.   Compromise and appease.   Remember who followed both his immediate family members in the WH!   If there was something great (like Reagan) about them this would not have happened.  Indeed, Reagan got H swept in only for him to squander the conservative wave to Clinton.  And that was after he earned a short lived 90+ approval ratings from the successful the invasion of Iraq and liberation of Kuwait.  

It is early.  I am not ruling J out.  Just very skeptical and leery.  He is going to have to put more than his words out there for me.
One more thing.  I don't like his calling himself a "grownup" whenever he implies the conservative Tea Party types are not.   What an insult.  We have a reason to be angry.   We have reasons to want to really put our feet down.  We have a reason to want to fight.  "Conversations" are not enough to fight back the left.

Appreciate the opinions.

I just don't know.

Got my latest National Geographic magazine and the lead article is about "deniers" of science from those who still link vaccines with autism to of course those who deny Climate Change or Global Warming is man made.

Scientific American has been replete with references to this from front to back almost no matter what the article topic is.   It is really annoying how EVERTHING somehow gets tied to man made Climate change.

Can this many people be this crazy or am I missing something?   How is nearly the entire academic world making this their reason d' etre?

"He answered the questions directly and without flinching, with vigor, and calls to economic growth for all. "

Too bad he is a believer in big government.   He is absolutely ridiculous with the immigration thing.  What a sell out.   No other way to call it. 

But yes he has some positives.   The Bushes are great Americans but I hope we can get someone who is not an appeaser.   He is.   

Remember his father:   "voodoo economics".   Yet Jeb claims he is for tax cuts to spur the economy even with the astronomical debt load.   I just don't believe he means it.

If anyone thinks we will be able to contain them for 10 yrs must also have not been reading anything the last decade.

This reminds me of the handling of our economy.  Keep throwing money at the debt and hope we can keep pushing off the inevitable because something totally unforeseen or unexpected will miraculously come out of know where to save us.

allegedly discriminate against Black owned media.   It couldn't be their product doesn't sell.  It is of course because they are black owned.   Of course.  So let me try to get this straight.   We have a street thug shaking down companies to pay him off so he doesn't call them racists.  Yet he himself is a total goes around accusing anything that breathes and is white racist.   Then we have another Black group calling him a discriminator because he doesn't call the companies they claim are discriminating them as racist.

And I would assume because this group now suing him cannot be called racist (his usual offensive move) because they are black.  Are they hiring Black or Jewish lawyers.   cheesy

******Rev. Al Sharpton Being Sued $20 Billion in Racial Discrimination Lawsuit

By Robert Hoggard -
 
Feb 23, 2015
 
Allegedly, Rev. Al Sharpton, founder and president of National Action Network, is being sued $20 billion dollars by the National Association of African-American Owned Media, a California limited liability company; and Entertainment Studios Networks, Inc., a California corporation.

Mediate reports, “Comcast and Time Warner Cable were served with a lawsuit from a group of African-American media owners seeking $20 billion — yes, “billion,” with a “b” — for discriminatory practices, and alleges that Al Sharpton and his organizations received big money to look the other way.”

The Hollywood Reporter writes, “Even though the FCC hasn’t yet ruled on the proposed merger between Comcast and Time Warner Cable, one group has already filed a lawsuit claiming at least $20 billion in damages from the way the two giants allegedly discriminate against black-owned media.”

The Hollywood Reporter also reports that “Sharpton objects that the budget for National Action Network is not even $4 million, and as for his MSNBC show, he believes he has the most successful show in the 6 p.m. hour at MSNBC, that ‘the numbers speak for themselves.’ The lawsuit seems to count Sharpton’s reported $750,000 annual salary at MSNBC as part of the $3.8 million and leverages past criticism of the noted civil rights leader that’s rooted in him allegedly turning an eye and forgoing boycotts and protests on corporations upon receiving monetary contributions to the National Action Network.”

Sources tell The Buzz that perhaps Rev. Al plans to share with the press these looming accusations specifically. His show “Politics Nation” airs every evening at 6pm.

The 30 some page lawsuit against Rev. Al, Comcast/Time Warner, N.A.A.C.P, and others which is seeking a trial can be viewed here.*****

Well, I can say I don't recall anyone who headed the DNC who garnered my appreciation or admiration.   It is interesting when we occasionally hear stories of unethical behavior from Democrats when one of more of them are pissed off by another one of their kindred.   

The phony anti-Semitic and anti-woman card:

**********In 2013, Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz “sensed” President Barack Obama might try to replace her as chair — and it led her to set in motion an ethically questionable plan to prevent her ouster, according to a new Politico report.

She “began to line up supporters to suggest the move was both anti-woman and anti-Semitic,” the report states, citing anonymous sources.

Schultz did indeed keep her position as DNC chair and sources who have reportedly spoken with the Democratic congresswoman said she believes no one will remove her before her term ends in 2017.

The Politico report also outlined Schultz’s isolation within the Democratic Party and indicates she has barely even talked to Obama since 2011:

Throughout her time as chair, Wasserman Schultz has turned off colleagues, other top Democrats and current and former staff for a management style that strikes many as self-centered — even for a politician — and often at the expense of the DNC or individual candidates or campaigns. Many top Democrats, including some she counts as supporters and friends, privately complain about her trying to use the DNC as a vehicle for her own personal promotion, and letting her own ambition get in the way of larger goals.******

*****Ex-Con Dem Pol Says DWS Could Have Had Feds Called On Her

8:04 AM, Feb 20, 2015 • By MICHAEL WARREN

Florida congresswoman and chairman of the Democratic National Committee Debbie Wasserman Schultz might have been the subject of a federal investigation, suggests a former Democratic politician and ex-con. Politico reports that Wasserman Schultz "offered to change her position on medical marijuana if a major Florida donor recanted his withering criticism of her."

The proposal to Orlando trial lawyer John Morgan was straightforward: retract critical statements he made to a reporter in return for Wasserman Schultz publicly backing his cannabis initiative that she had trashed just months earlier. Morgan declined the offer with a sharp email reply sent to a go-between, who described the congresswoman as being in a “tizzy.”

The email exchange, which was forwarded by Morgan to Politico, is certainly embarrassing for the congresswoman. But former Missouri state senator and failed congressional candidate Jeff Smith, a Democrat who was convicted and imprisoned in 2010 for violating federal election laws, says Wasserman Schultz should be thankful the Florida donor didn't bring in federal investigators in to catch the DNC chair in the act:

DWS very lucky Morgan, who clearly despises her, didn't tip the feds, wire up, and meet w/ to propose a deal. http://t.co/4bKedBrzMx

For a labor strike? Another for Japanese internment camps?  Now the guy is making political statements when designating national monuments?

Gotta love this guy's statements at the end:

"Bill Dvorak, who has owned a rafting and fishing outfitting business in the area along the Arkansas River since 1984, said presidential action is the most practical way to protect people's right to boat, fish, hunt and hike in the area.

"With the current Congress, it seems like nothing gets done," Dvorak said."

As though Republicans have been keeping this guy from hunting fishing and boating.   (Why was this moron even quoted in this?)


*********The White House said Obama will be in his hometown Thursday to announce the Pullman National Monument.

The neighborhood on the city's South Side was built by industrialist George Pullman in the 19th century for workers to manufacture luxurious railroad sleeping cars. The neighborhood was crucial in the African-American labor movement.

Obama also is expected to announce designation of Honouliuli National Monument in Hawaii, the site of an internment camp where Japanese-American citizens and prisoners of war were held during World War II; as well as Browns Canyon National Monument in Colorado, a 21,000-acre site along the Arkansas River popular for whitewater rafting.

The White House said the three new monuments "help tell the story of significant events in American history and protect unique natural resources for the benefit of all Americans."

The three sites will bring to 16 the number of national monuments Obama has created under the 1906 Antiquities Act, which grants presidents broad authority to protect historic or ecologically significant sites without congressional approval.

Some Republicans have complained that Obama has abused his authority, and they renewed their complaints over the new designations, especially the Colorado site, the largest in size by far among the three new monuments.

Obama should "cut it out," said Rep. Ken Buck, R-Colo. "He is not king. No more acting like King Barack."

Rep. Doug Lamborn, R-Colo., said he was outraged by what he called "a top-down, big-government land grab by the president that disenfranchises the concerned citizens in the Browns Canyon region" in central Colorado, about 140 miles southwest of Denver.

Designating Browns Canyon as a national monument could have a devastating effect on grazing rights and water rights in the area, Lamborn said.

The 203-acre Pullman site includes factories and buildings associated with the Pullman Palace Car Company, which was founded in 1867 and employed thousands of workers to construct and provide service on railroad cars. While the company employed a mostly white workforce to manufacture railroad passenger cars, it also hired former slaves to serve as porters, waiters and maids on its iconic sleeping cars.

View gallery FILE - In this Aug. 22, 2014 file photo, the Pullman … FILE - In this Aug. 22, 2014 file photo, the Pullman neighborhood’s ornate brick homes that were bui …The railroad industry — and Pullman in particular — was one of the largest employers of African-Americans in the United States by the early 1900s. Pullman workers played a major role in the rise of the black middle class and, through a historic labor agreement won by the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters, they helped launch the civil rights movement of the 20th Century, the White House said.

The president's visit falls days before the city's mayoral election, where Mayor Rahm Emanuel is seeking a second term. Emanuel is a former White House chief of staff under Obama.

Illinois' two senators, Democrat Richard Durbin and Republican Mark Kirk, hailed the Pullman designation.

"As Chicago's first national park, Pullman's 135 years of civil rights and industrial history will be protected and enjoyed for generations to come," Kirk said in a statement. "This new national park will breathe new economic life into this community, bringing up to 30,000 visitors and more than $40 million each year."

Outdoors and wildlife groups hailed the Browns Canyon designation, which they said would allow future generations to enjoy its spectacular landscapes, world-class whitewater rafting, hunting and fishing.

Michael Bennet, D-Colo., and Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper asked Obama to designate Browns Canyon as a monument after efforts by Bennet and former Democratic Sen. Mark Udall to protect the land failed in Congress.

"Coloradans have been very clear they wanted this protection, along with assurances that existing uses will be protected. We're glad the administration heard those voices and provided those assurances," Bennet said in a statement.

Bill Dvorak, who has owned a rafting and fishing outfitting business in the area along the Arkansas River since 1984, said presidential action is the most practical way to protect people's right to boat, fish, hunt and hike in the area.

"With the current Congress, it seems like nothing gets done," Dvorak said.

If a person is overweight they should do their best to lose excess weight.  If they are not and their cholesterol is high than a statin drug for those at higher risk.   I rarely advise low cholesterol fat diets otherwise.   Some still will do that.   Exercise is always good.   But I have thought this was long overrated and mostly agree with this "new" recommendation:

New guidelines expected to downplay importance of lowering cholesterol

Posted 8:05 AM, February 17, 2015, by PIX11 Report   

(PIX11/CNN) – In a step that would reverse decades of thinking, a dietary guidelines panel suggests that consumers don’t need to worry about how much cholesterol is in their food.

“Cholesterol is not considered a nutrient of concern for overconsumption,” the 40-page report notes.

What nutrients are of concern, according to the panel? Vitamin D, calcium, potassium, fiber and iron – all of which are severely lacking from Americans’ diets. And sodium and saturated fat, which make up too much of Americans’ diets.

The draft was issued in December. The Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee must send its final recommendation to the Department of Health and Human Services and the U.S. Department of Agriculture before they get the final approval.

The American Heart Association classifies cholesterol in two ways: “good” and “bad.” It says too much of one type of cholesterol or not enough of another can put you at risk for coronary heart disease, heart attack or stroke.

The agency recommends all adults age 20 or older have their cholesterol checked every four to six years.

Step right up the first female President:  Hillary.   "Break all those glass ceilings".  The Hawkster in waiting.   wink  Warrior woman.   Don't mess with this Amazon.

And that is partly what the Warren crowd is about.   She is a "war monger".  Poor code stink.  They won't know what to do.   We know they won't vote Republican.

Finally someone besides me who hits the nail on the head.  From Walter Williams.  I keep saying we need efforts at real fairness.   We don't need class envy or victimhood but we do need a full scale up and down evaluation of the playing field.   Government has only added to the unfairness in our country.  Not reduced it.

I don't know if Israel is safer than Europe for Jews.   In some ways I feel Jews should stand their ground where they are but that could be easy for me to say sitting here in NJ.

OTOH I sense the sheep moving to Israel for a real slaughter aka Iran and the rest of the Jew hating Muslim world.

Well if your going to listen to a speech from someone who will proceed to insult some of the Supreme Court Justices, most of Congress, or/and half the population of the United States you may as well get drunk and pass out.  OTOH she probably agrees with him 90% of the time.

I really don't want to be a government employee but this is where it is going.   I no of no significant scientific evidence that sex is a decent form or aerobic exercise unless one is being whipped while running on a treadmill.  This is just patently ridiculous:

*****British Doctors Told to Prescribe Sex as Exercise

by A.B. Sanderson13 Feb 201586

Medical experts have recommended that exercise is something which GPs should be prescribing more often, describing it as “a wonder drug” which is important in the prevention of many common diseases.

The report from the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges says that physical activity plays a significant role in the management of long term conditions but its impact is so positive that it needs to take a greater role in the daily routine of children and adults, the Daily Mail reports.

There is, it says, a direct correlation between the increasingly sedentary lifestyle and conditions such as diabetes and obesity.

And worryingly, over 40 per cent of adults do not reach the minimum recommended level of 30 minutes of moderately intense exercise five times per week.

Regular exercise can prevent dementia, type 2 diabetes, some cancers, depression, heart disease and other common serious conditions – reducing the risk of each by at least 30% – better than many drugs.

But rather than simply telling doctors to send their patients down the gym or pounding the streets in lycra, the authors suggest there are a huge number of ways to raise the heart rate which fit into a person’s schedule.

The report says that fun activities are more likely to be sustained, suggesting many activities can be promoted including dog walking, dancing and even having sex. ‘Basing activities in communities leads to sustained acceptance’ it says, although the report offers no comment on whether this applies to the latter activity.

And it is not just the health of patients which will improve with more adults taking part in community dance classes or training for charity events: The costs of physical inactivity to the UK, the NHS and other public bodies are estimated to be in excess of £15bn.

There are also other costs which are less simple to quantify, including the effects of bad health on families and communities. Lack of physical activity is, is says, acknowledged as one of the top four factors responsible for premature deaths and long term diseases.

Chairman of the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges Professor Dame Sue Bailey sailed:

“This is about people and their doctors believing that the small effort involved is worth it because they are worth it.

“There really is a miracle cure staring us in the face, one which too many patients and doctors have quite simply forgotten about.

“This is about people and their doctors believing that the small effort involved is worth it because they are worth it. This needs to work across the life-course, from children to the very elderly.”

But the advice was not welcomed everywhere, with Joyce Robins of Patient Concern saying, “It’s none of GPs’ business to be talking about patients’ sex lives. I would take amiss at that and I’m sure many others would too.

“This is particularly true as nowadays most patients don’t even know their family doctor.”*****

I post here because a main feature of the report was to encourage engagement with Assad in Syria and Iran which may have been the inspiration for Barack's Middle East policy.   If this is his policy than he has not been forthcoming to Americans as such (the most transparent WH guy we ever had), but it would easily explain what he IS doing in the Middle East.  Rather than not having a policy in the Middle East as some claim, it makes more sense that Obama has a policy and is simply not forthcoming about it.

"Karma's a bitch for jihadi sympathizers"

Interesting insight into the motives of this young girl.  One wonders what someone like her is doing in a war zone.   I mean really.  What could one young lady do that is going to help anyone?

There is some romantic allure of being a "revolutionary".   I noticed this when reading about Stalin and Lenin in the late 1800s and early 1900s.  They think of themselves as gallant like movie actors fighting evil.

God and earthly devils only know what became of her.  And near her own end she must have wished she stayed in Arizona.   

Perhaps I read too much into this but it is interesting that Obama would send a few ground troops in harms way after HER death and not previous ones.

Taking up the Palestinian chant that they are oppressed by Jews is something he clearly believes in as did she.

"Gayle Kesselman, co-chair of New Jersey Citizens for Immigration Control, said she thought the report would have shown more immigrants coming to New Jersey."

It is an invasion.   It is getting worse.   It is obvious.   Absolutely no enforcement that I am aware of.   Illegals now know this so they have just come out of the closet so to speak.   It is not just the obvious Latins from south of the border, but many thousands from Asia, Africa, Caribbean, Eastern Europe and elsewhere (western Europe and Middle East).  The elites of course tell us this is humane or ultimately good for the economy and therefore good for all Americans.   This is so absurd.  No one represents us.

Matt Rainey/The Star-LedgerRamon Gonzalez Solares, of Ewing, sits inside an interview room at the Elizabeth Detention Center, where he had been detained for 6 weeks, in this August 2010 file photo. The illegal immigrant had been in the U.S. since 1985 working in a diner and as a landscaper. He was facing deportation to his native Guatemala.

The number of illegal immigrants in New Jersey has remained largely steady from 2007 to 2010, but a report released Tuesday shows it remains among the states with the highest percentages of undocumented immigrants overall.

An analysis by the Pew Hispanic Center of recent U.S. Census figures shows about 6 percent of New Jersey's population is made up of illegal immigrants.

With an estimated 550,000 illegal immigrants, New Jersey ranks fifth among the states with the highest illegal immigrant populations, behind New York, Florida, Texas. California is the state with the highest illegal immigrant population.

New Jersey had about 600,000 illegal immigrants in 2007, according to the study, but the range of estimates is such that the decline is not enough to be statistically significant.

The Pew study also finds New Jersey third among the states with the largest share of illegal immigrants in the work force, behind Texas and California, with illegal immigrants constituting about 8.6 percent of the Garden State's work force. Immigrants represent a higher percentage of working age people than the general population, the study said.

Levels of illegal immigration nationally also remained largely the same. The study found the number of illegal immigrants living in the U.S. in 2010 was roughly 11.2 million, a number virtually unchanged from 2009, when the level of illegal immigration declined for the first time in two decades.

More than 70 percent of the nation's foreign born are in this country legally, with illegal immigrants making up about 28 percent of the foreign born population, according to the study, which was based on the Census Bureau's Current Population Survey through March 2010.

Both immigrant advocates and those who favor stricter immigration controls said they were surprised at the findings, and said they thought immigrant communities in New Jersey had been growing at a faster pace.

"We have more people coming, and a bigger population because of more children born here," said Flor Gonzalez, who heads the Plainfield-based Latin American Coalition, a service center for immigrants.

"These immigrants are suffering more because of the lack of work, and they're more afraid now to go to the police and complain about crime, and domestic violence is going up," Gonzalez said.

Gayle Kesselman, co-chair of New Jersey Citizens for Immigration Control, said she thought the report would have shown more immigrants coming to New Jersey.

"I'm surprised there isn't more movement from states like Arizona that have stricter laws on immigration, coming to states like New Jersey which are more lax, and don't do anything about illegal immigration," she said.

One web site claims she is worth 100 million but I am not sure it's reliability.   I have a feeling she is worth a lot more than 35 million.   With her husbands companies etc..  I am not clear how much of this wealth was made during her tenure in office or as speaker.   Her father and brother were mayors of Baltimore and father also a Congressman:

Publically she sounds so flippant and irrationally partisan I wonder how she can produce Democrats who vote in lock step "90%" of the time no matter what.

Some how she must have tremendous skills behind the scenes and certainly no ethics or morals when it comes to shoving the liberal agenda down everyone's throat:
