Links and Comments, Jan. 4, 2015

UPDATE:  fixed the link, plus this:  I do believe Obama is the son of the original Obama because I saw Dinesh D’Sousa’s film that had his brother who looks and speaks remarkably like him- I think his spiritual father and advisor is Frank Davis.  This is a story from 2012.  There may actually be some Obama answers here.  We have all wondered who, how and when he was picked to send to the top.

Remember this? Just two years ago, when up for reelection, Obama reminded Americans, “We can’t just drill our way to lower gas prices.”  Victor Davis Hanson does and has written this.

Mona Charen takes a look back at some more mischief from liberal ex-darling, Jonathan Gruber. In their 1998 paper, Gruber and his co-authors concluded that “we find that for the marginal child not born due to increased abortion access, the odds of living in a single parent family would have been roughly 70 percent higher, the odds of living in poverty nearly 40 percent higher, the odds of welfare receipt 50 percent higher. . . . From these results, we estimate that the legalization of abortion saved the federal government over $14 billion in welfare payments through 1994.”

Considering that 30 percent of abortions are obtained by African-American women, though they comprise just 13 percent of the population, Gruber was in effect arguing that reducing the number of poor black children was, not to put too fine a point on it, a “positive good.” One cannot begin to imagine the outcry if a conservative academic (that rare specimen) had published similar conclusions with such sangfroid.

The Story of 2014 – America is Back  “America is back. Despite Washington. Despite lousy leadership. Despite the rise of other great powers. Back because its economy is resilient. Back because the other great powers are each facing deep challenges at home — from European coherence to corruption and the slowing growth of job creation in China. Back because America remains a hotbed of innovation. Back because the fiscal deficit that threatened it has receded along with the recession that stirred up fears. Back because it proved that even at a low point in political creativity, the country could flourish — especially in light of the fact that that low point is likely to end soon.”

Listening to Dr. King, I wonder what Happened to us.  by John W. Fountain writing in the Chicago Sun Times.

The New Congress contains more women and minorities.  Good article.

The Five Families who enforce deBlasio‘s agenda.  They might as well be the Mafia.

Mike Huckabee leaves Fox News.  Politics or show biz, what is the difference?

And by the way, how did it get to be Jan. 4th already?
