    Former Vice President Joe Biden said as the Republicans were blocking President Barack Obama’s Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland, nine GOP senators told him they knew they were doing the wrong thing. “I call 17 Republicans and say, ‘You know better,’” Biden said Thursday. “Nine of them said to me, ‘You’re right Joe, but I can’t do anything about it because if I do the Koch brothers or somebody is going to drop $5 million into my race and I’ll lose my primary.’”

    National Review ^ | February 3, 2017 | Andrew C. McCarthy
    My friend Monica Crowley was the subject of a major hit job by CNN a few weeks back. She is a serious scholar, but she was portrayed as a serial plagiarist who never had an original idea in her head. The emotional toll of the uproar caused her to withdraw from her appointment by President Trump to be the senior director of communications at the National Security Council. It is the country’s loss. Over the last two decades, Monica has been one of the most effective commentators on the national scene regarding the geopolitical challenges confronting the United States, and...

    A BREAKING NEWS, Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) communique is reporting that a comment allegedly made by outgoing President Obama to President Elect Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner in their secret meeting Wednesday at a Marine Corps Base in Hawaii was so antagonistic that US Secret Service agents had to intervene! Their meeting "erupted in a Scream Fest that caused US Secret Service protective agents to intervene before physical violence was caused." Kushner was reacting to stark criticism of his father in which Obama, "suggested/implied that his father, Charles Kushner, might be safer living in Israel if the Trump team didn't like...

    President-elect Donald Trump is considering tapping Fox News analyst Monica Crowley as his press secretary, according to Politico. Crowley, who is also a regular columnist for the Washington Times, was an early and vocal supporter of Trump. Politico noted that she warned Fox not to underestimate Trump when he launched his presidential bid last year.

    Vice President Joe Biden accused Donald Trump of lying for saying he cared about working people, calling it a “bunch of malarkey” and thrilling the audience at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia by using the same slogan he employed against Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan in 2012.

    "We don’t often question the typical world map that hangs on the walls of classrooms — a patchwork of yellow, pink and green that separates the world into more than 200 nations. But Parag Khanna, a global strategist, says that this map is, essentially, obsolete. Khanna is the author of the new book “Connectography: Mapping the Future of Global Civilization,” in which he argues that the arc of global history is undeniably bending toward integration. Instead of the boundaries that separate sovereign nations, the lines that we should put on our maps are the high-speed railways, broadband cables and shipping...

    Mike Barnicle's a guy from the Duke Ellington era, so I suppose it makes sense if he doesn't "get around much anymore." How else to explain his nonsensical statement on today's Morning Joe? When Joe Scarborough asked him why the FBI investigation of Hillary's email is taking so long, Barnicle said "I have not spoken to anyone who believes there is an indictable offense that has occurred." Responded Scarborough sarcastically: "you're talking to a very tightly focused crowd there," adding that people in the intel community say "anybody else would be in prison right now." The befuddled Barnicle reversed himself...

    When it comes to conservatives, liberal media types are lately really letting their snobbery show. Last week, as we reported here, John Fugelsang referred to conservatives as "rubes" who Fox News worked to keep in its "paddock." Today, it was Mike Barnicle's turn to display his disdain. Guest-hosting on With All Due Respect, Barnicle declared "I would want to live as far away as possible" from the 53% of Iowa Republican voters who favor anti-establishment candidates Trump, Carson, Fiorina and Cruz.

    Vice President Joe Biden made a surprise visit to Washington, D.C.’s Naval Observatory on Saturday for a confidential talk with Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), CNN reported. Biden’s return to the District comes amid buzz he is seriously weighing a 2016 Oval Office bid. CNN said that two sources confirmed the pair’s face-to-face, the biggest indicator yet that Biden is seriously tempted by an Oval Office bid next year.“The vice president traveled last minute to Washington, D.C. for a private meeting and will be returning to Delaware,” an aide told CNN. Biden spokeswoman Kendra Barkoff declined further comment on the alleged...

    Liberty Unyielding ^ | June 16, 2015 | Howard Portnoy
    Among the works by her exhibited at ArtPal is a painting with the title “The Shape of Our Kind,” ... A better title would have been ‘The Slave Ship.” That’s the title that Romantic landscape painter J.M.W. Turner gave to his 1840 masterpiece, which hangs in the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. ... While Dolezal’s painting is not identical pixel for pixel, the style and content are unmistakably lifted from the Turner work. Unlike the Turner painting, which is priceless, Dolezal’s near-knockoff comes with a price: $5,100. Maybe a psychiatric evaluation wouldn’t be such a bad idea after all.

    Coach is Right ^ | 5/10/15 | Kevin "Coach" Collins
    The United States Postal Service (USPS) has colluded with the family of the late poet Maya Angelou to steal a quote from a white eighty nine year old children’s book writer named Joan Walsh Anglund to make the new Angelou stamp look good. The whole episode is a perfect example of how liberals are different from other people. According to reports, there was an excited gathering of “luminaries” at the stamp’s unveiling which included Michelle Obama who is the political world’s Kim Kardashian – famous for being famous without any actual accomplishments of her own. That the stolen quote placed...

Brennan, Oprah Winfrey and Ross Rossin stand on stage during the Maya Angelou Forever Stamp Dedication at Warner Theatre on April 7, 2015 in Washington, DC.” Of course it has now been revealed that the quote attributed to Maya wasn’t actually hers: “Her stamp features the phrase, “A bird doesn’t sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song,” which the USPS attributed to Angelou—though the direct quote may actually be from a different author.” Normally that would be...

    WASHINGTON - Power outages left many wondering who turned out the lights in D.C. on Tuesday-- including OprahWinfrey. The power went off at D.C.'s Warner Theatre, right in the middle of Ms. Winfrey's speech honoring Maya Angelou. Winfrey was part of the dedication ceremony of a new U.S. Postal Service Forever Stamp that honors Angelou. "I am honored to be here to stand her as her daughter, sister-friend at the unveiling of the Maya Forever-- FOREVER-- stamp," Winfrey said, and then the lights went out.

    Maya Angelou was known for her inspirational and thought-provoking quotes, so it's only fitting that a stamp commemorating her features one. A new postage stamp that was unveiled in a dedication ceremony Tuesday morning celebrating the late literary icon aimed to do just that. It features her image with the quote, "A bird doesn't sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song." Except that quote ... isn't Angelou's.

    Vice President Joe Biden demonstrated that he is slipping deeper into senility this week when he gave a speech swearing that he once violently ambushed an unsuspecting kid who allegedly kicked his sister off of her bicycle. The tale told by Biden bore a remarkable resemblance to a scene in “The Godfather,” in which Sonny Corleone pummels Carlo Rizzi for abusing Corleone’s pregnant sister, Connie.

    It's the Joe Biden you didn’t know — and might not want to see. Secret Service agents dread being assigned to protect the vice president, in part because Biden’s a big fan of skinny dipping, according to a new tell-all book. In “The First Family Detail,” author Ronald Kessler quotes unnamed Secret Service agents dishing about the supposedly “hidden lives” of Presidents and the other important people they protect.

    On Sunday, a stunned audience sat in silence as Doris Kearns Goodwin turned the keynote address at the opening ceremony for the 150th anniverary of the Battle of Gettysburg into a political lecture focusing on women's and gay rights. Missing from much of her keynote: Gettysburg. Self-centered, insular, and oblivious to the occasion, the historian who was infamously caught plagiarizing merely recycled much of what she has said before about herself in previous speeches. And her rambling, self-promoting, and borderline inappropriate lecture touched upon nearly everything except for the heroic sacrifices made on that battlefield. In so doing, she desecrated...

    Joe Biden summoned more than 200 Democratic insiders to the vice presidential residence Sunday night to chat about the 2012 triumph — but many walked away convinced his rising 2016 ambitions were the real intent of the long, intimate night. “I took a look at who was there,” said longtime New Hampshire state Sen. Lou D’Allesandro, “and said to myself, ‘There’s no question he’s thinking about the future.’” He’s right. Biden, according to a number of advisers and Democrats who have spoken to him in recent months, wants to run, or at least be well positioned to run, if and...
