  • U.S. stocks retreat from records after Netanyahu speech

    Market Watch ^ | March 3, 2015 | By Anora Mahmudova and Victor Reklaitis
    U.S. stocks pulled back Tuesday, retreating from all-time highs and the psychologically significant 5,000 level for the Nasdaq Composite reached during the previous session. In the absence of major economic reports, investors turned their attention to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech to U.S. Congress. Netanyahu criticized the White House’s attempts to reach a nuclear deal with Iran, saying it was a “bad deal.” The speech reminded investors of potential geopolitical risks abroad. But indexes have since come off their lows.

    Obama could be the true Manchurian candidate, but the liberal media does not have time to investigate, for they are too busy hounding Scott Walker Clearly, the hottest Republican in the country today is Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker. After a well received speech to Congressman Steve King’s Freedom Summit, Walker has earned media attention and skyrocketed in the polls. Currently, he is in second place in New Hampshire and is leading in Iowa, while he is gaining ground on Florida Governor Jeb Bush nationally. With the rise of Walker come the very predictable attacks from the liberal media. This week,...

    News broke this week about a popular independent bookstore in San Francisco that is going out of business thanks to a citywide minimum wage hike that priced the owner out of business. Effectively, the minimum wage for this store's employees was "raised" to zero, as they are losing their jobs. On Thursday morning, the store's owner Alan Beatts appeared on Morning Joe on MSNBC to discuss his decision to close and how the wage hike negatively impacted his business. The panel was, to say the least, skeptical. The interview began with a hostile inquiry from Mika Brzezinski and only got...

    Rand Paul does a lot of interviews -- a lot. This, from time to time, has gotten him in trouble. Rarely, though, has it gone as poorly as this. Speaking Monday afternoon with CNBC, Paul: 1) Reiterated his contention that vaccines should be voluntary. 2) Said this: "I have heard of many tragic cases of walking, talking, normal children who wound up with profound mental disorders after vaccines." (Michele Bachmann said something similar during the 2012 presidential campaign. It didn't go over well.) 3) Actually shushed the anchor when he thought she wasn't allowing him to answer her questions.

    Three consecutive events, initiated by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, make it clear that hidden within the campaign propaganda are genuine threats to Israel’s security and standing. The assumption that the killing on the Golan Heights of the senior Hezbollah figures and the Iranian general, which has been attributed to Israel, was necessary is not convincing. Israel has already suffered lethal retaliation, in which two soldiers were killed. It would have been possible to accept the claim, by senior officers and by cabinet ministers, according to which no political considerations were behind the operation, had it had coincided with the growing...

In Obama’s case, it was a failure to recognize the threat posed to him by Republicans who didn’t buy into his calls for a post-partisan partnership with Congress. For New York’s ambitious liberal mayor, it was an inability to keep long-simmering tensions with the city’s traditionally powerful police department from boiling over in the last few days. Just over a year after sailing into office with 72 percent of the vote...

A disclaimer: While “conservative” or “right-leaning” are obviously subjective terms, a cursory glance at the Times’ list indicates books that lack a focus on individual liberty, free enterprise, traditional values, or many of the other tenets of Western civilization — unless critical of such tenets; further, the list is bereft of any titles authored by conservative or right-leaning authors.

    So this morning I have kicked back and perused the local south Florida stations. Ever since their hero Obama seized power, they've done their best to set him up as the Messiah to the audience. Today was PARTICULARLY hilarious....as it has been the past several Black Fridays. See, the stores in Miami are NOT CROWDED...local traffic reporters flying over the malls show empty lots provide the proof that Obamanomics is a failure. Truth is, this has been going on every year since Obama took over....seriously, it is amazing to see "journalists" talk about the "frenzy" when the wide halls of...

    When Ferguson, Mo., police officer Darren Wilson left the scene of the fatal shooting of unarmed teenager Michael Brown, the officer returned to the police station unescorted, washed blood off his hands and placed his recently fired pistol into an evidence bag himself. Those actions, described in grand jury testimony, violated protocols for handling a crime scene and securing evidence, according to experts in policing procedures and Justice Department documents. Wilson’s movements after the shooting were among a number of police actions in the aftermath of Brown’s death that experts said were unusual.

    Mary Landrieu is dedicated to the well being of Louisiana residents. Even her vote for the Affordable Care Act, which is being used to attack her, reflects concern for the hundreds of thousands of her constituents who lack health insurance. Seniority matters in the Senate. Although Democrats lost control of the chamber in the midterm elections, Sen. Landrieu would be one of the highest-ranking members of the minority party in the next Congress. Her track record demonstrates her ability to work successfully with Republicans on a variety of matters. Louisiana needs Sen. Landrieu's knowledge, energy and influence in Washington as...

    Are these governors the GOP’s antidote to the party of the 1 percent? Gov. Scott Walker, a rabid Wisconsin Badgers fan, likes to razz Gov. John Kasich about his Ohio State Buckeyes. “We’re hoping to be against each other in the Big 10 championship in a couple weeks,” he said during a panel discussion at the Republican Governors Association meeting here this week.

    The man who police say shot three people at Florida State University had complained to authorities in New Mexico that cameras were watching him and he heard voices talking about him, according to new reports. Myron May, a 2005 Florida State graduate, is accused of returning to his school this week and shooting two students and a library pistol before being shot fatally by police, according to the Associated Press. In September, May walked into the Las Cruces Police Department to report his suspicions on cameras installed in his apartment and voices that were talking about him and laughing at...

    The Miami media finally got around to reporting a little bit about the shooter at FSU. NOTHING, however, about the victims. I have seen enough liberal media to know that if the shooter were white and had shot two or three black students, RACISM would be the drumbeat.... In this case, the shooter was black....but the victims have not been identified.
