  • Debate Backlash: Many Democrats Say Criticizing Obama’s Legacy Isn’t A Good Idea

    Following a contentious debate among Democratic White House contenders Wednesday, a number of party leaders aren’t thrilled that some of the candidates focused on attacking former President Barack Obama’s legacy as a way to challenge Joe Biden. In one of the debate’s hottest exchanges, Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey called out the former vice president ― the frontrunner in the Democratic nomination race ― for repeatedly using Obama’s name to shield himself from criticism directed his way on issues like criminal justice and immigration. “Mr. vice president, you can’t have it both ways,” Booker said, referring to Biden’s ―...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden has used Barack Obama’s beloved status among Democratic voters to insulate him from criticism from the massive field of candidates jockeying to be the next president. But in recent weeks, the Democratic frontrunner has had that legacy used against him, with his competitors pointing the to shortcomings of the last Democratic administration as evidence that Biden’s not up to the task of leading the next one. “Barack Obama, personally, is incredibly popular among Democratic primary voters,” Karthik Ganapathy, a progressive consultant now running his own firm, told The Daily Beast. “And also at the same...

    A blending of bits and pieces from Standpoint magazine and Newspunch - both British sources as the USA media has been eerily silent. Martin Luther King Jr. was the ‘Harvey Weinstein of the civil rights movement’ who had ’40 affairs,' Michael Mosbacher, the acting editor of Standpoint magazine, which is publishing Mr Garrow’s article about the files, says the tapes reveal MLK as “the Harvey Weinstein of the civil rights movement”. [Newspunch Mag 9-28-19] Mosbacher continues, “If public figures are now all – rightly – subject to scrutiny, there should be no exception for Martin Luther King, however worthy his...

    In his State of the Union address, President Trump once again made a strong case for border security and immigration reform, declaring it our “moral duty” to protect the lives of our citizens, while emphasizing the importance of legal immigration. The President said: “Legal immigrants enrich our nation and strengthen our society in countless ways. I want people to come into our country, in the largest numbers ever, but they have to come in legally.” The American people agree. According to a CBS News poll, seventy-two percent of speech-watchers “approved of President Trump’s ideas for immigration.” In other words, they...

    CNBC ^ | 12-27-2018 | Lauren Hirsch
    Sears, the 125-year-old icon, has 24 hours to survive. The employer of more than 68,000 filed for bankruptcy in October. Its last shot at survival is a $4.6 billion proposal put forward by its chairman, Eddie Lampert, to buy the company out of bankruptcy through his hedge fund, ESL Investments. ESL is the only party offering to buy Sears as a whole, people familiar with the situation tell CNBC. Without that bid or another like it, liquidators will break the company up into pieces. But as Lampert stares down a deadline of Dec. 28 to submit his offer, he is...

    American Thinker ^ | 08/27/2018 | By William Sullivan
    Human beings (and Americans are no exception) like their heroes and villains easily identifiable and the explanation of historical events simple. As such, both Republicans and Democrats have built easily digestible historical narratives regarding American political history since the Civil War. Peculiarly, there seems to be a debate about who gets to own the legacy of Abraham Lincoln. On the left, the meandering and incoherent narrative goes like this. Lincoln and his mighty Union army launched a war against the racist, slave-holding Confederacy to rid America of the abominable institution of slavery and make equal citizens of the former slaves....

    I live in Las Vegas. I'm the number one conservative talk show host in this town. I know every show on the Vegas Strip. Don't look now, but Donald Trump is the second coming of David Copperfield. And Obama is the rabbit. Trump has made Obama disappear. It's magic! I told you so. Both before the election and after, I predicted Donald Trump would make Obama disappear. I predicted he'd erase Obama’s entire legacy. He’d make our long national Obama nightmare disappear. He’d make the misery of the Obamageddon economy go away. He’d erase Obama like he was never there....

  • How Dr. Walter Reed became a New Orleans hero

    The legacy: It was an annual plague. Every summer, as warm weather set in, New Orleans braced for an outbreak of yellow fever. Those who could afford it got the heck out, fleeing to the Northshore or farther. Those who couldn't, stayed. And they prayed. Nearly every year, hundreds of them would be killed anyway by the so-called "saffron scourge" -- sometimes thousands. Then, in 1900, a team led by Army doctor Walter Reed confirmed a key discovery: It was the mosquitoes. The winged pests weren't just annoying. They were deadly, spreading the virus that caused the disease. That breakthrough...

    **SNIP** Many members of his party pleaded with him to stop watering down his proposals, including lowering the amount of his stimulus request, based on the false hope he would be able to persuade his opponents -- but Obama insisted. As the political ecosystem started to drown in partisan spin and vitriolic slander, he attempted to be reasonable, appealing to the evidence-based angels in our electorate, desperately trying to ignore all the noise. But the partisan noise was what our politics was now about. And this influenced much of his term in office. Starting with the 2010 midterm elections, Obama...
  • Another Obama Legacy Down the Tubes: FCC Rolls Back Internet Regulations

    IWB ^ | Chris Black
    The FCC (Federal Communications Commission ) voted (3-2 vote) on Thursday to roll back Obama era legislation that established far reaching rules regarding how ISPs (internet service providers) should treat traffic on their networks. The 2015 net neutrality legislation was one of the most important regulatory action of Barack Obama’s administration, and it required ISPs to treat all internet traffic the same, i.e. without slowing/blocking content, nor providing “discriminatory broadband” for favored services or websites. According to the GOP, the rolling back of net-neutrality legislation is a good thing, as they seem to favor a “deregulated” internet if you like,...

    On November 14 Mozilla will take the biggest gamble in its long history when the organization will ship Firefox 57, the first version of its browser that will stop supporting legacy Firefox add-ons. This means that starting with Firefox 57 the browser will support only new add-ons written on top of the newer WebExtensions SDK. All legacy Firefox add-ons written on the old XUL-based Add-Ons SDK will stop working. In a blog post last week, Mozilla said it will continue to allow developers to upload and list legacy Firefox add-ons on its add-ons portal (AMO), but they'll only show up...

    President Trump is busy doing the job the voters asked for him to do, but this isn't stopping the mainstream press and other establishment cognoscenti from whining about "the Obama legacy" and the dreadful loss these actions by President Trmp this supposedly represent. According to Agence France-Presse: Brick by brick, the demolition job has begun: since taking office less than a year ago, Donald Trump has launched an all-out assault on the legacy of Barack Obama.
