Outwardly, they put on a show of unity -- but privately, the Obamas and Clintons, the two power couples of the Democrat Party, loathe each other. "I hate that man Obama more than any man I've ever met, more than any man who ever lived," Bill Clinton said to friends on one occasion, adding he would never forgive Obama for suggesting he was a racist during the 2008 campaign. The feeling is mutual. Obama made ­excuses not to talk to Bill, while the first lady privately sniped about Hillary.On most evenings, Michelle Obama and her trusted adviser, Valerie Jarrett, met in a quiet corner of the White House residence. They'd usually open a bottle of Chardonnay, catch up on news about Sasha and Malia, and gossip about people who gave them heartburn.Their favorite bête noire was Hillary Clinton, whom they nicknamed "Hildebeest," after the menacing and shaggy-maned gnu that roams the Serengeti. read more

As Ninth Circuit Chief Judge Alex Kozinski has written, prosecutorial misconduct has become "an epidemic." And evidence has come to light that our president, the nation's chief law enforcement official, seeks his counsel from the worst. f ever a picture was worth a thousand words, it is a recently released White House photo of President Obama and his muses -- if one only knew the truth behind those muses whispering in the President's ear as they strategized in the aftermath of the Benghazi tragedy. To understand the (politely-put) "lack of transparency" from the White House, the enormous politicization of the Department of Justice, the release of Taliban leaders from Guantanamo, refusal to cooperate with congressional investigations, the IRS's harassment of political opponents, and the cover-up of Benghazi, read on.

The effort to remake the intelligence relationship between the United States and Germany after it was disclosed last year that the National Security Agency was tapping Chancellor Angela Merkel's cellphone has collapsed, according to German officials, who say there will be no broad intelligence sharing or "no-spy" agreement between the two countries when Chancellor Merkel arrives at the White House on May 2. read more

"The U.S. is a living hell as elementary rights to existence are ruthlessly violated," reads an article titled "News Analysis on Poor Human Rights Records in US" that was published Wednesday by North Korea's state news agency. Putting aside an inexhaustible list of ironies, some of the accusations from supreme leader Kim Jong-un's propaganda arm provide an unnervingly accurate overview of some of America's most pressing social and economic issues.The KCNA news agency report backs up its assertion that "the U.S. is the world's worst human-rights abuser," with a dozen fiery accusations and a handful of statistics that cite racial disparity, misuse of political funds, gun violence, and widespread unemployment and poverty. These are bold statements for a country with a record so bloody that an official United Nations inquiry recently compared its practices to Nazi war crimes. read more

I don't believe it's only a fringe of the Republican party growing in numbers with these views but also folks that often don't vote along with dependents. As this country continues its' slide, you'll see a greater shift. Take an example: you have the resident idiot and his compatriot in the WH believing that letting mass infiltration of illegals tramping across the border will help the economy. That may have been true in the past but the financial situation of this country is now different. You have folks median incomes continuing to drop and a report came out this weekend that shows median net worth has plummeted in this country. When you take away the net worth in housing the results are even more disastrous. We already have millions of folks on food stamps and other government assistance and that's grown tremendously over the last 6 years and continues to grow. The middle class has been shrinking with more at the lower rungs of the ladder dropping into poverty and government assistance. Now, let's use some common sense (which some of the regular posters are still searching for---we know them well)-----if you let in thousands more illegals and there is substandard growth in this economy; where in the world are they going to get jobs and who are they going to displace from their jobs. Hello, out there. What do you think will happen with those folks? How much more will government assistance grow? 2 years of the future can't come fast enough for the financial health of this country.

The Malaysian flight took it upon itself to reroute into a war zone to avoid bad weather. Nothing happened when five other passenger airplanes were shot down. Obama, the State Department and the CIA have a hidden agenda in this case and would like war. The Putin guilt by association and media coverage will be relentless in order to further that agenda. Human rights are a value that applies to everybody except the Unites States and Israel, who are exempt from their application. Theater of the absurd.

Couldn't agree more----anybody remember the Iran Air Airbus plane shot down by the U.S. over the Persian Gulf in 1988 with 290 passengers and crew. Where was the outrage then? Where were the sanctions on the U.S. then. Washington is trying its' best to goad Putin into an aggressive action and to get the EU to increase sanctions it wants no part of. Of course, if any of the delinquents on this site that are selective partisan warmongers were honest, they would come out of the closet and admit they support the Wolfowitz Doctrine:

"Our first objective is to prevent the re-emergence of a new rival, either on the territory of the former Soviet Union or elsewhere, that poses a threat on the order of that posed formerly by the Soviet Union. This is a dominant consideration underlying the new regional defense strategy and requires that we endeavor to prevent any hostile power from dominating a region whose resources would, under consolidated control, be sufficient to generate global power."
