The question to Jay Carney came from Jim Acosta who works for CNN. And he wasn’t flattering The President:
This is an entertaining read. Thanks, Matt, for sharing it.
So opines Syahredhan Johan at The Star Online. The best part of the piece is, “The problem for Muslims in Angola is that according to Angolan laws, a religious group must have 100,000 members and must be present in 12 out of the 18 provinces. There are only about 90,000 Muslims in Angola out of a population of 18 million people, according to a report. As they failed to meet this requirement, Muslim religious groups are not recognised by Angola laws.”

Go Debbie, Go!
Byron York’s piece at The Washington Examiner today begins, “In April, Real Clear Politics’ average of polls showed that 47 percent of Americans opposed Obamacare, while 41 percent supported it — a 6-percentage-point edge for opponents of the president’s health care law, which at the time was still months away from implementation.
“The latest average of polls, less than two months into the law’s rollout, shows 57 percent opposing Obamacare, with 38 percent supporting — an enormous 19-point gap between opponents and supporters.”
Those are the numbers; read the whole thing to ascertain their ramifications.
The story is from The Canada Free Press.
And so does the President. His heckler was planted–but don’t take my word for it; after you read the Rangel story, watch and judge for yourself.
Perhaps the Speaker will work to overturn Obamacare for personal reasons?
The story is from Politico.
As you read the story, ask, why? Morality isn’t a dirty word. Its presence might have prevented this.
Social conservatism, in other words, is a good thing.
Diana Nyad swam from Cuba to Florida at age sixty-something, and Showtime had a great special cataloging her journey and determination. I was channel surfing today after walking the dog and came across it. It was inspiring. She demonstrated that accomplishing one’s dream is imminently possible irrespective of roadblocks.
The Showtime special didn’t focus on her sexual preference–in fact, unless I missed it while getting a cup of coffee, it wasn’t mentioned. If you Google her, though the message you’ll take away is that she’s a gay swimmer.
The message should be that one can succeed, period, if he or she is strong mentally. Nyad is a role model, not because of who her “partner” is, but because she accomplished what she wanted to. She proves that all of us, with hard work, can realize our dreams.
The mainstream press misses that, of course, because it celebrates all things non-conservative, and it looks for victims.
She isn’t a victim. She was determined to beat the odds, and she did. The rest of us can as well. The economy, for instance, may be challenging, just as the current in the ocean was for Ms. Nyad, but the human mind can overcome any roadblock.
…the Mullahs laugh at us.
Competent foreign policy matters. The United States, at the moment, has no competent leader, and Iran knows it.
It’s been reached. By us, at least. Iran continues to enrich uranium, so…that doesn’t seem like a deal. Stay with my Facebook page (key words “The Will Anderson Show”) to hear what the President is about to say.
I was watching Jimmy Carter’s famous “malaise speech,” and I was surprised at how reasonable he sounded compared to the White House’s current occupant. We’ve had faith, he said, and we’re losing it. “Not only in government itself,” Carter proclaimed, but “in the ability as citizens to serve as the ultimate rulers and shapers of our democracy.”
The obvious protests here start with the notion that we should have faith in government, and end with the ignorant claim that we’re a democracy.
Carter’s economic policies were abysmal, but this speech was unlike anything Obama has or will say. Carter, however misguided he was, was a man of character. Obama, in short, isn’t.
It’s worth watching; the best parts start at 1:21 and end at 3:32. Carter praises “hard work, strong families, close-nit communities, and our faith in God.”
There’s no mention of free phones or free health care.
Alabama, predictably, beat Chattanooga today, so we’re all smiling. This is not the moment to bring up politics, but it can’t go without comment that Coach Saban is a leader, as is evidenced by his post-game press conference. If only (I hate that phrase, but it fits here) the President could be the leader that Nick Saban is.
From The New York Daily News: “You gotta get ugly to recruit women into combat, a top female Army officer says.
“Col. Lynette Arnhart has declared war on featuring pretty women soldiers in Army public affairs materials — and Capitol Hill lawmakers are livid.”
As members of Congress find this outrageous, Hillary Clinton, who’s seeking to be the next Commander-In-Chief, has a real opportunity here to position herself as the perfect candidate able to recruit women into combat.
Today is the 50-year anniversary of the assassination of President Kennedy, of course, and The Pittsburgh Post Gazette published the speech the President didn’t get to give. President Kennedy was a wet-behind-the-ears commander-in-chief, but his heart was in the right place. I recommend reading his prepared remarks and contrasting them to the foreign policy mindset of the current occupant of the White House. The two men have nothing in common.
The Economist, once a reliable ally of the President, has changed its tune, as the cover story of its most recent edition indicates.
The Weekly Standard reports, “ It is Israel, not the great American superpower, that may well have to act to thwart Iran’s nuclear ambitions.”
We have known this, of course, for some time now. For background and context, read the whole piece here.
…comes from the always brilliant George Will.
