    Freedom Partners Chamber of Commerce, the funding arm of the political network backed by the billionaire brothers Charles and David Koch, wants a lot more hard information from the crowded field of presidential contenders before deciding what to do with its considerable resources. The group is pressing every 2016 candidate to detail on the record their plans for economic growth, deficit reduction, entitlement reform, criminal justice and even foreign policy. The tax-exempt entity, a key node in a constellation of conservative entities that aims to spend $889 million before the next White House election, distributed a detailed survey Thursday to...

    When famous people die these days, there is an irritating modern tendency towards hyperbole. Everyone even remotely well known who passes away is instantly, breathlessly propelled via social media into the once rarefied stratosphere of ‘great’ or ‘finest’. Insincere platitudes of alarming extravagance rain down on the heads of often thoroughly undeserving individuals. Sometimes, though, it is deserved. ‘Beau Biden was quite simply the finest man any of us has ever known,’ said Vice President Joe Biden about his son, who has died from brain cancer aged 46. I knew Beau well, interviewing him numerous times when I worked for...

Biden also pointed out that the United States now recognized gay marriage in 37 states, up from just six states six years ago.

    US Vice President Joe Biden on Monday sought to end an embarrassing rift between Washington and Baghdad after Pentagon boss Ashton Carter blamed Iraqi forces for the fall of Ramadi. The White House said Biden called Iraqi's prime minister Haider al-Abadi, just hours after the US Defense Secretary's suggested the Islamic State group won control of the city because "Iraqi forces showed no will to fight," according to AFP. Biden "recognized the enormous sacrifice and bravery of Iraqi forces over the past eighteen months in Ramadi and elsewhere," the White House said. As well as rowing back Carter's comments, Biden...

    It is well-known the relationship between President Barack Obama and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is not a good one. Nevertheless, both Obama and Netanyahu still have to work on a diplomatic level. Apparently, Obama’s support for allowing Iran to have nuclear capabilities is highly favored by the country’s people, who are recently shown celebrating in the streets. It is also the same deal Netanyahu warned about. A deal which, if approved, would result in dire consequences, not just for Israel, but for the world, according to some observers. For Vice President Joe Biden, he might just be oblivious to the...

To this, conservatives laughed. There is a difference between being scandal-free and deftly navigating the media environment to ensure that no individual controversy shatters the foundations of the public’s trust in the president.

Obviously the odds of Bush even winding up in the top three are about the same as the odds of Joe Biden taking the Democrat Nomination in 2016. The far left media will probably keep Bush in the top three with their "Left Leaning Polls". Should be interesting to watch their reactions when Jeb wont even make the top four in Iowa.

    According to a study released this month by Northeastern University in Boston, nonverbal cues such as smiling are sexist. The study's aim was to find types of sexism that are not readily apparent. Psychologist Jin Goh explained, "While many people are sensitive to sexist verbal offences, they may not readily associate sexism with warmth and friendliness." 27 pairs of men and women participated in the study. They were tasked with playing a trivia game and then talking afterwards. Scientists concluded that men who are nice to women are, in fact, actually sexist because they are tricking them into accepting the...

    seriously, what is wrong with this guy? This recent, bizarre snuggling with the incoming Defense Secretary's wife is beyond belief- yet hardly something new, actually should be something like 'the last straw' if there's any sense or justice left in this country.  But Uncle Joe doesn't age discriminate, he'll fondle any from 8-80... if the photos floating around out there are any indicator. And WHERE the hell are the feminists...? How old is Coons' daughter, anyway? Looks like maybe 12... and he was all-over every little girl they made the mistake of standing him next to on Biden's (utterly useless) China trip,...

    The Obama administration’s new excuse to explain why Vice-President Joe Biden will be “out of the country” when Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu addresses Congress next month is that he has to attend a Panama government inauguration – that occurred last July. The vice president of the United States normally attends joint sessions of Congress, but National Security Council Spokesperson Bernadette Meehan stated last month, “As a matter of long-standing practice and principle, we do not see heads of state or candidates in close proximity to their elections…. The President has been clear about his opposition to Congress passing new legislation...
  • MSM Ignored an Even Creepier Joe Biden Moment

    So what could be creepier than inappropriately placing your hands on the wife of a new cabinet official? How about inappropriately placing your hand on the leg of a gruff police chief during a solemn ceremony? Joe Biden did both but the first act is all over the news and the classic photo of the latter was buried by the mainstream media. Why? The reason seems to be timing. It is okay now to have a laugh at the expense of Biden since his days in office are numbered and few, perhaps not even Biden himself, believe he has...

    Honoring a long tradition of liberal women circling the wagons around Dem men accused of impropriety, Mika Brzezinski has come to the defense of Uncle Joe Biden. On today's Morning Joe, Mika declared that Biden was not being "creepy" when for 20 seconds he put his hands on Stephanie Carter during her husband Ash's swearing in as Defense Secretary. For good measure, Mika claimed that Stephanie Carter was "fine" with Biden's unseemly ministrations. Has Brzezinski spoken with Mrs. Carter, or is she showing off her skills for a second career as Real Psychic Mika? View the video here.

    Muslim Leader Who Called Israel a ‘Suspect’ After 9/11 Meets with Biden at White House Critics call Salam Al-Marayati anti-Israel and soft on terrorism BY: Adam Kredo February 18, 2015 5:00 am A controversial U.S. Muslim leader who has been highly critical of Israel and said that the Jewish state should be on the “suspect list” in the wake of the 9/11 terror attacks participated on Tuesday in a White House summit on Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) that featured Vice President Joe Biden. Salam Al-Marayati, founder of the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC), tweeted out a photo of himself at...

    EXCERPT In this case, Biden said at the ceremony today he has known Ash Carter for years and, when you watch the full video (click above), it doesn't appear entirely obvious that he makes Stephanie Carter uncomfortable. In fact, she nods her head in agreement after Biden talks to her. If you watch for more than a Vine's-length, the ceremony goes on normally after the whisper seen 'round the web.
  • Biden: Including immigrants key to stopping extremism in US

    02/17/2015 12:56:48 PM PST · by Citizen Zed · 32 replies
    The United States must ensure that immigrants are fully included in the fabric of American society to prevent violent ideologies from taking root at home, Vice President Joe Biden said Tuesday as he opened a White House summit on countering extremism and radicalization. Joining local elected officials, community leaders and religious figures, Biden portrayed the U.S. as far better positioned than Europe, thanks to what he called America's successful record at cultural integration. He said societies must offer immigrants an "affirmative alternative" to extremism, cautioning that military force alone could not address the threat. Across the Atlantic, deadly terrorist attacks...

    It didn’t take long for Tweeters to react to that photo of Vice President Joe Biden canoodling with the wife on Defense Secretary Ashton Carter at Carter’s swearing in a little earlier today. Check out some of the funnier fake captions and reactions to what is the latest in an ongoing series of photographers catching Mr. Biden getting just a little too “handsy” with a member of the opposite sex:

    Tuesday, at Defense Sec. Ash Carter‘s swearing-in ceremony, Biden got all touchy feely with Carter’s wife, Stephanie. From the pictures, it looks like he’s whispering sweet nothings into her right ear. He’s also getting a good whiff of her shampoo. Let’s give him the benefit of the doubt: Perhaps he was trying to be comforting after her spill on the ice at the Pentagon this morning while she was accompanying her husband on his first day on the job.
