Rob Astorino's one man war against Obama's racial housing quotas
Westchester County Executive explains the HUD racial rezoning rule: "if you live in that quarter acre or half acre residential neighborhood [zoning], the federal government is saying that a thirteen-story apartment building could be right in the middle of it, government-subsidized, because there needs to be equal mix, in their view, of ethnicity, of race, of income."

What is going on over at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue?
Obama spent a mere 40 seconds mentioning the shot-down airliner "tragedy" between standard dinner-speaker jokes at a Delaware fundraiser—the day it happened.

Snider: Janet Yellen uses Fed failures to expand the Fed's mandate
"On an economic whirlwind, [Yellen's] goal over the past few months has been to convince anyone and everyone that the economy has nearly healed, the trajectory thus brightened enough to allow the Fed to gracefully exit and take full credit for it. While that is certainly the broad stroke of what looks to be 'forward guidance', for now, there is more than a little complication between here and there."

Limbaugh is right about Obama's war on suburbs
Radio host Rush Limbaugh: "What better way to give a boost to the Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing Act and the remaking of American neighborhoods than to start injecting illegal immigrant populations into targeted cities and towns in the suburbs all across the country?"

Lois Lerner's pension defunded and a whole lot more
Lois Lerner was apparently patient zero of deadly computer viruses within the United States government as it has been learned that some of her former colleagues at the Federal Election Commission also mysteriously lost their computer hard drives.  Of course, they had to be destroyed as well.

Rubino: Taking control of the time in which we live
"[S]ound money is really a moral issue as much as it is a financial issue. It means you have to keep your promises. And that governments have to maintain the value of their promises -- a piece of currency is basically a promise that if you hold on to it today, you will be able to exchange it for something of equal real value sometime in the future. Governments have been breaking that promise consistently since 1971 and that moral corruption has bled over into every other aspect of life."

Extremism in the defense of liberty is still no vice
The 50th anniversary of Barry Goldwater's clarion call for liberty acceptance speech for the Republican nomination passed this week. In a modern world where politicians talk, but their words are hollow, listening to Goldwater's message a half a century later is like a drink of fresh water.

Chris McDaniel's attorney says he expects to challenge runoff results within 10 days
"McDaniel said later in the week that his campaign found "over 8,300 questionable ballots.' His campaign did not elaborate much on its findings Wednesday."



WGIR: New Hampshire Today with Jack Heath
July 15, 2014

This morning, on WGIR's New Hampshire Today radio show with Jack Heath, Scott Brown addressed the current immigration crisis, saying that the Obama-Shaheen agenda is squarely to blame for the current situation along the the border.

JACK HEATH: Let me switch gears, Scott Brown. Illegal immigration, this is a crisis of epic proportions and let me just ask some specifics. Maybe no immediate solution, but why hasn’t the National Guard been called down, Governor Perry requested this and national media hardly mentioned this, to at least help maybe not with the kids coming across, but the adults. The National Guard’s not been mobilized, do you think this is a problem the administration truly wants to solve immediately or are politics kind of running their illegal immigration policy?

SCOTT BROWN: Well this is where I disagree with Senator Shaheen. I disagree with the problem and her solution.  I blame this issue and this problem squarely on the backs of the Obama-Shaheen agenda when it comes to immigration. There is a porous border, we need to secure it. We need to make sure we don’t provide incentives or magnets for folks to come here, for kids in particular to come here. What the President did and what Senator Shaheen did to support him on the DREAM Act and putting a class of people ahead of citizens, sorry people who are trying to follow our laws and do it legally. To put people who are here illegally ahead of those people is just wrong, and that’s cretated, helped create the situation where people say, you know what, hey just go to the United States, get across the border, if you’re a kid in particular, you’ll be taken care of. We have to eliminate those incentives. So, Senator Shaheen supports the Dream Act, she supports amnesty, she has done little if anything to help secure our borders, and it’s a real problem.

HEATH: When I had her on yesterday, I asked her last week with the President going for the private fundraisers in Texas at least, should he have gone to the border, she said, quote unquote, I’m not going to get in to that, do you think the President should have visited?

BROWN: Of course he should have gone to the border. We’re having a crisis that is affecting our national security and who we are as a nation. Yes he should’ve gone to the border, it should be his top priority. He shouldn’t be going on vacation necessarily, although I don’t begrudge anyone from taking some time off, but we have a real problem down there. Yes, he should’ve gone to the border, should’ve looked and addressed it and come up with a plan, because there is no real plan right now that’s helping except shipping people around the country without letting others know about it.

Obama's petulant 'sue me' challenge
Obama's words encouraging Congress to sue him over his abuse of power, shows a man willing to throw our nation into what can only be termed a Constitutional crisis, because of his wanton disregard for the rule of law.

The byzantine, meandering discussion on the future of the internet
"ICANN isn't a corporation competing with others for a share of its market. Instead, it's a centralised, monopolistic, hardly accountable private organisation that exercises public authority and power. At the same time that it's providing services to the domain name industry, it is also trying to regulate it."
