    BUSTED: We Have Axelrod’s Father’s Communist Party Membership #ObamaLovesAmerica Gotnews.com has exclusively discovered David Axelrod’s father’s Communist Party membership. David Axelrod’s book, “Believer: My Forty Years in Politics,” details his very close relationship with his father, Joseph. He repeatedly told Charlie Rose that his father believed in the American dream. In fact, Axelrod’s father, Joseph, was a card-carrying communist. He’s listed as a member of the Communist Party for the 1936 general election. Axelrod briefly mentions his father’s Communist views in his book but only in passing and in a section about how he got to visit the former Soviet Union. Axelrod...

    Forget the roses and chocolate for Valentines Day. Giving new meaning to the concept of romance, just four weeks after returning from 17 days in Oahu the president headed to California for a weekend of golf and his wife and two daughters, for the fourth year in a row, headed to Aspen for a ski weekend. Recently, shortly after Americans witnessed a Jordanian pilot burned alive by ISIS, Obama flew to Rancho Mirage, but all was quiet on the Michelle ski-trip front. Judging from the lack of press, one would think that for the first time while hubby duffs around...

    Oregon governor John Kitzhaber may have announced that he will resign, but a sweeping FBI investigation of him and his fiancée, Cylvia Hayes, is only getting started. While the story involves personal failings, the green-energy lobbying scandal that brought them down has national lessons and implications. If oil companies and pharmaceutical concerns shouldn’t exercise undue influence in government, the same is true for green energy — which can’t yet survive in the marketplace without giant subsidies or special tax favors.

    This gem from John Nolte came across my Twitter feed the other day: “Met Brian Williams once in DC. Starting to wonder about that story he told me about saving all those hostages at Nakotami Plaza. Barefoot.” Brian Williams is a liar. I don’t mean that as an insult. He seems nice. I feel sorry for the poor sap. People who lie are called liars. Once you’re caught in a lie, or multiple lies as the case may be, your credibility is shot. You’re now open to ridicule and scorn. You can, and should apologize, as Williams has done, but...

Among other things it said this in the announcement the network was suspending NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams for six months without pay:While on Nightly News on Friday, January 30, 2015, Brian misrepresented events which occurred while he was covering the Iraq War in 2003. It then became clear that on other occasions Brian had done the same while telling that story in other venues. This was wrong and completely inappropriate for someone in Brian’s position.In addition, we have concerns about comments that occurred outside...

    NBC’S Brian Williams finally admitted that after 12 years of bragging about how he faced death while reporting on the Iraq War in 2003 that he had lied. Real soldiers flying in the helicopter transporting Williams to the war zone unanimously attested that, contrary to Williams’ heroic story, the aircraft was not hit and landed safely. Williams characterized his lie as “a mistake made in good faith. It was my way of bonding with the men and women who risked their lives in the battle against Saddam Hussein. It was also an attempt to make the war seem more real...

    Earlier this week, it was reported that NBC anchor Brian Williams lied about his tall tale of being shot at with a rocket propelled grenade by Islamic terrorists while on board a Chinook helicopter in Iraq. Some claimed it was all about nothing, but the reality is that this is the man that reports to the people. It demonstrates that not only did he lie, but that he allowed the public to believe the lie for over a decade. Now, Hillary Clinton has a pretty tall tale from the time when her husband was in the White House that she...

    variety ^ | 2-2015 | Rainey
    There’s an emerging consensus among some political gabbers that Brian Williams’ long-running misrepresentations about his time in Iraq does serious damage to a major national figure. The twist: The figure being skewered is not the embattled NBC anchorman but Hillary Rodham Clinton. Why would misstatements by Williams — that a helicopter he rode in a dozen years ago in Iraq came under enemy fire — damage the once and likely future presidential candidate? Because the former secretary of state and frontrunner-in-waiting for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination had her own Williams-esque flight of war-zone “misspeak.” Clinton’s error came in the...

The media is also gloating over the 5.6% unemployment rate which the...

Early this week, Sen.

Other than his defiant tone serving to give the lie to his conciliatory rhetoric prior to the November midterm election rout, I believe that the primary value of this address was its potential for having demonstrated to a few million more Americans that this is the most diabolical individual to ever occupy the White House.

    Saudi authorities have swooped on a house in the eastern province city of Khafji, on the border with Kuwait, and arrested 27 people for using the premises as church last week. Members of the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice (Haia) also confiscated copies of the Bible and various musical instruments from the people during the raid. The swoop was prompted by a tip from a citizen, reported the English-language newspaper Saudi Gazette. Those arrested on September 5 were of various Asian nationalities, including women and children, the newspaper reported.

Firefighters had to use power saws to cut open the drums, which weighed 1,200 pounds. The Boston Globe reports: “When a Boston firefighter’s power saw generated sparks that flew onto the protester, he screamed in pain.” The protestors wore diapers, anticipating a long wait.

I say Obama has created problems where none existed, and with the deftness of an evil alchemist, he fomented a zeitgeist of unbridled black antipathy toward whites.

Hillary Clinton used the administration’s exact talking point blaming the attack on a YouTube video before Obama’s White House speechwriter Ben Rhodes drafted it to prepare Susan Rice for Sunday morning talk shows days later. As Rhodes prepares to leave the White House before he can be called to testify in front of Rep. Trey Gowdy’s select committee on the attack, a new timeline emerges that puts the video in Secretary Clinton’s hands.

Amid the rise of the tea-party groups targeted by Lerner, Republicans in the 2010 elections gained the most seats in the House since 1948.

Sessions said that the proposed language “fails to meet [the] test” established by Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus, who promised earlier this year that the GOP would do everything possible to thwart Obama’s executive orders. “The executive amnesty language is substantially weaker than the language the House adopted this summer, and does not reject the central tenets of the President’s plan: work permits, Social Security and...

Still others acknowledged changing their stories to fit published details about the autopsy or admitted that they did not see the shooting at all. An Associated Press review of thousands of pages of grand jury documents reveals numerous examples of statements made during the shooting investigation that were inconsistent, fabricated or provably wrong. For one, the autopsies ultimately showed Brown was not struck by any bullets in his back. Prosecutors exposed these inconsistencies before...

    Could non-citizen voting be a problem in next week’s elections, and perhaps even swing some very close elections? A new study by two Old Dominion University professors, based on survey data from the Cooperative Congressional Election Study, indicated that 6.4 percent of all non-citizens voted illegally in the 2008 presidential election, and 2.2 percent in the 2010 midterms. Given that 80 percent of non-citizens lean Democratic, they cite Al Franken ’s 312-vote win in the 2008 Minnesota U.S. Senate race as one likely tipped by non-citizen voting. As a senator, Franken cast the 60th vote needed to make Obamacare law.

    Voter fraud probably gave Mr. Obama the victory in 2012. It may well prove to be crucial in deciding the tight race to capture the Senate in 2014. As many as one in six of the millions of illegal aliens in the U.S. are registered to vote, and surveys of this group have shown that nearly all of those who do vote will vote “Democrat.” Why do the illegals vote this way? The answer lies in a simple metric that has driven the “Democrat” campaign for a decade, and which the frighteningly unpolitical GOP has never bothered to understand.

    In an email to Global Okanagan, the Islamic Centre of Kelowna condemns the attack saying the incident has nothing to do with the Muslim faith. “I can understand and appreciate often people’s feelings that: ‘Oh we need to defend Islam again’ whereas I would rather express my feelings a bit differently,” says spokesman, Hamid Butt. “We don’t have to defend Islam rather our focus should be to educate (the) community at large that these types of incidents are sad indeed and has nothing to do with Islam.” Butt says he feels that Muslims are being singled out and misrepresented in...

    They took to the streets in downtown St. Louis on Saturday, coming by the thousands to march in protest. And what was the festering grievance that cohered these marchers, the noble cause that brought them from every corner of the country to the Gateway City? Was it the new war in Iraq? Global warming, perhaps? Or was it a higher minimum wage they were seeking? No, it was none of these things. As the St. Louis Post-Dispatch tells it [1], they came “to protest the death of Michael Brown and call for an end to police violence nationwide.”

    Kentucky Senator Mitch McConnell may be one of the most unpopular politicians in the state, but he is probably going to win another term thanks to President Obama. The president is so unpopular - and McConnell has been so effective at tying his opponent to Obama's apron strings - that McConnell's challenger, Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes, won't say whether or not she voted for President Obama. Twice, she declined to answer.

    The Minnesota Association of Health Underwriters (MAHU) has a strong message for Gov. Mark Dayton and MNsure, the state's health insurance marketplace. The association, which represents insurance agents told Dayton MNsure and the Minnesota Department of Commerce that the new MNsure average rate increase, set at 4.5 percent, is misleading consumers and making it more difficult for them to shop for better health insurance coverage. MAHU wants the Governor, MNsure and Commerce to tell MNsure clients the average rate increase, for most shopping through the exchange, will be considerably higher than 4.5 percent. MAHU Board Chair Alycia Riedl tells 5...

    As the mid-term election approaches, there is increasing focus on Senate races. Real Clear Politics shows these states as toss-ups: Alaska, Arkansas, Colorado, Georgia, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, New Hampshire, and North Carolina. (Michigan flips back and forth from being a toss up to leaning Dem.) If you look at the map with no toss ups, it shows the GOP winning anywhere from 50-52 seats. But if you look at the polling margin that pushes a state into one column or the other (Dem or GOP), you can see how fragile the situation is. We have some candidates leading by as...

    Senate Hopefuls Try to Appeal to Key Constituency While Keeping President at Arm’s Length In Louisiana, Sen. Mary Landrieu says President Barack Obama ’s energy policies are “simply wrong.” In North Carolina, Sen. Kay Hagan has criticized the administration’s handling of veterans’ benefits. And in Georgia, Senate candidate Michelle Nunn won’t say whether she would have voted for the Affordable Care Act. These Democrats, like others running in races across the country, are trying to distance themselves from a president who is deeply unpopular among white voters. But if they have any hopes of winning, they also must try to...

    The media celebrated Friday as the Department of Labor announced a “surge of hiring” – 248,000 new jobs added in September. The unemployment rate has now dropped to 5.9 percent. The Labor Department also revised upward the jobs numbers from July and August, adding 69,000 jobs; that puts the last three months of job growth at 671,000. The Associated Press, among others, speculates that the Federal Reserve may now talk about raising interest rates. But all is not well in the real economy. Here are five indicators that despite the rosy picture being painted of the Obama economy, things still...
