Common Core Architect Reveals Agenda Behind Curriculum

Harry Reid: Busted!  a one minute video of a hypocrit.

A Democrat stating Climate Science is Not Settled   a brave man.  This is the Wall Street Journal. If you cannot get to it because of the pay wall read this.  There are excerpts.

And from Just One Minute’s Tom Maguire we get this  The Science was Settled, except… Reforestation Raises Global Warming?  It’s the Co2 doncha know?  Or not.

Former State  Dept official says Maxwells Benghazi statement rings true

Eight ways the Obama administration is blocking information.

Indoctrination by ESPN  as far as I am concerned it is hard to be indoctrinated by something you never watched, but because of what is going on with ESPN violence against those who are partnered with NFL and other sportspersons are all over the news cycles.  I consider it a great distraction while the president is doing something they don’t want us to talk about.

Does Obama have a grand coalition, any any coalition at all?

The curious tale of Mohamed Elibiary, the Obama administration’s go-to “moderate Islamist” for counterterrorism advice

The Washington Post says Texas has become epicenter of conservative movement

An antidote for the heroin epidemic?

A petition to let the White House fence jumper live in the White House.  Surely it is satire, but with a very good point.  Why let illegals live in this country when they have jumped our fence, so to speak?

Incompetence at the State Dept is the charitable explanation, but the article does not really give them credit for incompetence  but instead reveals the real motive.

The French have a word they are calling ISIS and ISIS doesn’t like it.  This article has both a video and text, be sure to click the off button on the video if you don’t want to listen to it.

Rand Paul Blisters Obama and Clinton, Calls for GOP Diversity  he certainly caught the attention of the LA Times.

The Wisconsin Democratic candidate for governor caught plagiarizing, fires the consultant she said wrote it.  I doubt it will make much difference to the Democrats in Wisconsin, they are not very particular as long as the name Democrat is attached.

Margaret Sanger, The War Years.  She never gave up on killing babies.

60,000 to 100,000 Thousand Kurds flee ISIS Genocide in Syria

I THINK IT’S IMPORTANT THAT THEY DO: Will Tea Party, GOP establishment be ‘mending fences’ to win Senate in November? If Dems control the Senate, Obama will pack the Supreme Court, and you can bet Harry Reid will go nuclear on it.  from Instapundit, (I agree with him.  I don’t like what the establishment GOP did in Mississippi or Kansas but I hope and pray the GOP candidate prevails, we need the Senate.}

I don’t know how many of you, like me, are over 75 but Ezekiel Emanuel, the godfather of Obamacare, thinks we are selfish for living, getting flu shots, taking antibiotics or anything else that benefits our life or quality of life.

Operation Chokepoint: The  DOJ is threatening banks with audits 

J.Christian Adams discussion of the Obama political machine’s CATALIST database provides a peek into “Big Data” as applied to politics.

Former Obama Defense Secretary and CIA Director Leon Panetta told CBS News that some U.S. troops should have remained in Iraq. Panetta spoke with Scott Pelley in a segment that aired Friday.

Guess which party?  No need to read but these were the headlines:  Politician accused of dropping pants; racial slurs, dropping out of  race.  Democrat, of course.

The Koch Brothers are the whip Democrats are using, why aren’t the Republicans naming big names like Soros?  Last night in the Texas Governor debate Wendy managed to work in the name Koch Brothers.  And BTW after watching her on the debate I realize why some call her Barbie.

Domestic violence no one talks about.

We are nowhere near Peak Biden – peak number of gaffes, that is.

This is sad. The insurance policy on a Navy Seal killed in Benghazi won’t pay benefits to his family.

Seven minutes in September  media bias in black violence

Debbie Wasserman Shulz- latest member of Obama’s war on women?

Multiculturalism is a Failure–Germany, what was your first clue?

An Environmental Researcher in  Mexico is not pleased with the wind farms.  She says it is riddled with absolute corruption.

After Declaring War on the Tea Party Karl Rove Frets GOP establishment candidates not getting enough donations – unintended consequences of abdominal actions.   I now a lot of people who say they will  never donate to the party again;  Individual candidates yes;  party, no.   What in the world did he think would happen?  We as tea partiers turned the House, we could turn the Senate too, but they spent millions defeating tea party candidates.  Mississippi comes to mind.  That was a travesty.

Jimmy Carter is actually for attacking ISIS.

“Sources tell JW that Beto O’Rourke, a Democrat who represents El Paso in the U.S. House of Representatives, telephoned the area offices of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) and the U.S. Border Patrol (USBP) in an effort to identify—and evidently intimidate—sources that may have been used by JW. On August 29 JW reported that the militant group Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) is working in Juarez and planning to attack the United States with car bombs or other vehicle borne improvised explosive devices.”

Archaeologist unearth hidden death camp in Poland, it was used to kill 250,000 Jews during WWII by the Nazis.

A Democratic Representative says 40 ISIL fighters have already returned to the USA.

The danger in Africa is not just from ebola,  eight people just trying to help educate on how to avoid getting the disease were killed.

Greg Abbott has finally launched an attack ad at Wendy- she has had nothing but attack ads against him, at least all I have heard and seen were attack ads.

“10 percent of the conservative donors whose names were improperly obtained by the IRS in the section 501(c)(4) scandal were subjected to individual audits.”

Oops, apparently federal prosecutors have not been able to find a way to tie Christie to the “Bridgegate Scandal”  sorry, nothing to see here after all.

In Search of “Moderate” Muslims

Democracy Alliance Political Activist Network.  No wonder they can get by with so much!

While this panel is discussing “end of life” care for the aging, I’m thinking if we all get ebola or other deadly diseases carried by the recent inlux of illegals there won’t be many left to need it.

The EPA’s Janet McCabe was testifying in the House today on the agency’s plan to cap carbon emissions. And then the power went out.

Sen. Mike Lee to take over  Conservative Senate Group

Our Homeland Insecurity Secretary is a farce.

Do you need a little hope on taking over the senate.  Read this.  and this, and this.

The Iraqi Prime Minister says Please Don’t send troops.

Holder Presses Delay on Fast and Furious Documents  apparently they forgot to destroy their hard drives.

In what was called the largest anti-terror operation in Australian history, police have arrested 15 people allegedly linked to the Islamic State, some who plotted a public beheading.

Media Matters and the DOJ coordinated an attack on a Breitbart reporter.  How much more will we find out about this disgraceful administration?

So we know we carry around so called “good” and bad bacteria, now we are finding we carry viruses around, too.  Maybe there are some things we just don’t want to know.

 He titles this My Positive Abortion story but it is anti-abortion and shows the true nature of abortion.

Only 36% of Americans can name the three branches of government—and yet they are allowed to vote.

Most Americans don’t care for Washington and the bureaucrats there feel the same way about them.

Misreading Henry Kissinger on Israel.

Migrants in the Mediterranean dying by thousands as they flee turmoil in Libya and Syria

New questions over Obamacare and taxpayer funded abortions.  And in another Obamacare article- from the Hill: The Obama administration announced Monday it will cut off tax subsidies to about 360,000 people if they do not offer proof of their income in the next two weeks.

I have written more than once that while I have an extremely high opinion of Dr. Ben Carson I do not want to see  him run for president, I think he is more qualified to be an above the fray, intelligent man to go to for advice.  I had not thought of this position for him,  Dr. Ben Carson for Vice President.  He is the meaning of gravitas.

3000 US troops headed to Africa to Combat Ebola-  weren’t we told just last week the US was safe.  I can understand volunteers going to help with the outbreak but these are not volunteers. These are American military being sent into harm’s way, no bullets, not bombs, just ebola.

Uh Oh, another Texas grand jury is looking a little less than neutral – Grand Jury that Indicted Peterson was Headed by a Court Official.  Not excusing child abuse if it actually happened, but not excusing partisan grand jury selection either. We can see that happened/

Some liberals talking about the Barbour control in Mississippi.

ISIS makes $3Million per day from oil, human trafficking.

Super PAC contributing to Harry Reid is full of “dark money.”  no big surprise here.

Gore’s Latest “24 Hours of Reality” Promotes Tragic Mistake- Al Gore IS a tragic mistake.  The question is why would anyone believe he knows about real science.

Irony, almost funny, but too serious to be funny. Co-founder of Microsoft  Paul Allen has dumped hundreds-of-thousands of dollars into anti-gun campaigns and now, he’s the proud owner of a WWII Nazi tank.

This is an important editorial.  The Great Unraveling this is one time the New York times gets it right.  What do we do now?  It is up to us to pick up the pieces.

Bookworm on the elitist thoughts on the hoi poloi.  That would be us, the great unwashed of the south or north.

The problem is Islam. from “the Head Chopper Next Door.”

Here is a Pro War on ISIS post from Paul Mirengoff at Powerline Blog.

News you can use - The Senate’s Secret Book of Rules-  a really handy guide to see what is going on.  From USA Today.

Lest we forget- With Hillary and Tom Harkin being in the news today Instapundit links back to this  – Tom Harkin, Fake War Hero.

The Obama administration’s controversial nominee to lead the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division on Monday withdrew his name from consideration for the post.

Two people sent this link to Bill Whittle’s speech  at the Horowitz Freedom Center. I think you will all enjoy it. It is a 15 Minute video but if you don’t have time for the whole thing at one time, click the clock and you can pause and begin where you left off, several times if you need to.

A California School has paid $14,000 for an espresso machine for the teacher’s break room. and that my friends, is just one expression of what Roger Cohen is talking about in the Great Unraveling.

Another Instance of White House interference in an investigation, this one of Hilda Solis at the Dept of Labor

Clinton State Dept official reveals alleged details of document review before turning over to the Accountability Review Board.

Does Obama have regrets, or is the New York Times trying to humanize him? In forming a plan to destroy the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria using airpower and local forces, but not regular American ground troops, he searched for ways to avoid the mistakes of the past. He felt “haunted,” he told his visitors, by the failure of a Special Forces raid to rescue the American hostages James Foley and Steven J. Sotloff — “we just missed them,” he said — but their subsequent murders were not the real reason he opted for war, although he noted that gruesome videos released by ISIS had helped galvanize public support for action.

A 9/11 story you may not have read about  Feds find Anti-Israel and pro-Palestine 9/11 Message to America on Border Fence.

Some States have gamed the system to up their Medicaid share from the federal government

A lot of ISIS war news this morning -mostly cons-  I’m going to link some I’ve seen here:

Obama Knows He can’t Defeat ISIS- America Needs to Wake Up to that Reality too.   How do you fight an ideology, a religion of evil?  What is a win?

Poll: Americans Don’t Believe Obama Will Defeat Isis- Now What?

Iraqi President says Iran’s President should be Present at the Paris Meeting.

Obama’s Unnecessary, Unpromising War.

ISIS, Mao, Ho Chi Min and the Futility of Obama’s Strategy  In the end, if we are to prevail over ISIS, there will have to be the application of overwhelming force. That is unlikely to occur under President Obama. So the world is going to get a lot more dangerous until the next president is inaugurated.

I’m still looking for the PRO WAR articles in today’s news,  last week there were many of them.

Three days after Christmas last year, 13 members of Congress boarded planes across the United States bound for Morocco. Their all-expenses-paid trip lasted a week, and included visits to the cities of Marrakech, Rabat, and Casablanca. But much of what the lawmakers did while abroad—where they stayed, where they dined, what tourist sites they may have visited, and even how much the jaunt cost—remains a secret.

Bad News for 2016 Presidential Run?

Steve Jobs didn’t let his kids use iPads.  hmmm……

The Middle East Maze of Alliances- Victor Davis Hanson tries to sort it out for us.

I did not read Bill Bennet’s piece on  Common Core in the Wall Street Journal.  My husband did and related it to me.  I was taken aback when he was so for it, I believed Mr. Bennet needed to talk to some of the people on the many Facebook pages opposed to Common Core. Now this piece in the Washington Post takes him to task for being paid to write the editorial.  When Dick first told me about it I thought Mr. Bennet was badly mistaken, now I know he was paid for a point of view.  Read both and see what you think.

Jihadi tapes reveal a PB&J code in “culinary school”  sounds strange but read it,  they are using a form of code  that reminds me of the Windtalkers of WWII who used their words in code.  This is not as complex but it is devious.

Crazy things Progressives Believe   This doesn’t even begin to get to all of them.

Liberals in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones  Karl Rove and the Koch brothers make small potatoes compared to George Soros and Union money.

Sometimes the news I read makes me feel so completely helpless.  This did, and then I thought of how helpless the people at the mission in  Benghazi must have felt.  State Department Memos Show Security Guards were Bugging out months before the Benghazi Attack.  

It’s nice to know when the Pope agrees with me. Pope Says Worlds Many Conflicts  Amount to WWIII.  I think we have been in WWIII for a very long time. 

A Kindergarden teacher has had enough of bureaucracy and is standing up for less tests and more teaching time.

I don’t understand why media and Hollywood stars think it is their duty to “flip a district.”  also don’t understand why the Washington Post thinks it their duty to choose which one he should flip. In PowerLine Scott Johnson says Bill Maher Flips his Lid.

Dana Milbank says Ferguson Tragedy is becoming a farce.  When did he first notice that?  It has always been a farce.  If they want to protest let them protest on black killing innocent blacks.

Why is Obama Kicking the ISIS Can Down the Road?  I think we all know the answer but read this rendition of it anyway.

Islamic States Twitter Silence Making News  but then I also found this on Lucianne.com- ISIS takes to Twitter to find Mates for Militants.  So Twitter can rest easy it is still being used.

Kerry “Taken Aback” by James Foley’s Mother’s Reaction to Handling of Case.  It wasn’t his son, he wasn’t threatened.  Even the brother is claiming he was threatened by the government.

Uganda Foils Somalia Shebab cell threatening imminent attack on the US.  Al Queda on the run again, running towards attacking the United States in any way possible.

Flagship German Offshore Windfarm Project Humiliated by Technical Faults.  Who could not have seen this coming.  Well, the Greenies for one.

Silent Coup.  I have wondered why media and others have thought the Senate could pass a bill to change the first amendment.  It takes much more than that to amend our constitution.

John McCain is not too old to learn, or read the polls; whichever caused it he has decided our porous borders could be a major security problem.

THIS IS BIG. The New York Times, the paper of the ultra liberal, is saying Obama acted unconstitutionally.  They seem to think it is a first for him, it is not.
