The shutdown paradigm

[HumanEvents.com] There are understandable concerns about how the government shutdown could hurt Republicans, especially with the media wholly in the tank for Democrats. (Any reporter who doesn’t accurately report that Democrat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid shut the government down is in the tank for Democrats; it is a matter of objective fact. It’s fair enough to explain why, because he didn’t like any of the proposals coming from Republicans… but that kind of honest reporting would not produce the desired response from Low Information Voters. The media covers for Obama a lot, but they’re constantly throwing Harry Potter’s invisibility cloak over Harry Reid.) Continue reading

Boehner Blasts Senate Democrats for Inaction on Shutdown

[Newsmax-AP] Compromise elusive, Republicans and Democrats engaged in finger-pointing Monday just hours before the first government shutdown in 17 years, driven by an intractable budget dispute over President Barack Obama’s signature health care law. “This law is not ready for prime time,” said Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, who insisted that the Democratic-controlled Senate act quickly and accept a House measure that would avert a shutdown – but only by delaying further implementation of the health care law for a year. Continue reading

Hillary Speaks on Syria

[HotAir.com] Until now, Hillary Clinton has remained mighty quiet on Syria. As Secretary of State, she described Bashar al-Assad as a “reformer,” but now her successor has begun comparing Assad to Adolf Hitler. That silence will apparently end today, if Politico’s sources within Hillary’s camp are accurate:… Continue reading

[An Unstable] Obama leaving door open to Syria strike, even if Congress votes no

[FoxNews.com] President Obama apparently is leaving the door open to moving ahead with a military strike on Syria even if Congress votes against it, adding to the confusion over the president’s evolving position. The president, in a surprise decision Saturday, announced he would seek a vote in Congress on launching a military attack against the Assad regime. Continue reading

Homeland Security Lost Track of More Than a Million Visa Holders

[Newsmax.com] According to The Washington Times, the audit by the Government Accountability Office also found that Homeland has not yet fully developed or implemented a new entry-exit system, required by an immigration law passed in 1996. A new system was supposed to be online by 2004, the newspaper noted, adding that its continued delay could complicate efforts in Congress to pass a new comprehensive immigration measure.

Discord and Disarray Won’t Help Obama Legacy

[Townhall.com] Barack Obama is said to believe that he can win the political fight over the sequester. That’s certainly the conventional wisdom. And there is some evidence to support it. When you ask voters who will be to blame if the sequester occurs, Obama or “congressional Republicans,” they’re much more likely to say they’ll blame the latter. Obama also comes out on top when you ask whether they will blame “Obama and congressional Democrats” or “congressional Republicans.” Continue reading

Exclusive – Sarah Palin: Did Joe McGinniss Condemn an Innocent Man?

[Breitbart.com] I don’t normally read “true crime” books, and I’ve certainly never written a review of one, but Errol Morris’ new book, “A Wilderness of Error,” isn’t typical of the genre. It’s much more interesting and I think important. It’s a book about the failings of a legal system administered by very fallible human beings, and it’s a book about how we buy into false media narratives that tidy up uncomfortably complex stories and give us permission to call off any further search for truth – and, yes, Morris argues with refreshing clarity that objective truth is real and worthy of being sought after despite the pretentious nonsense preached in faculty lounges about all truth being relative. In fact, he argues passionately that the search for truth is what journalism and justice is all about. Continue reading
