As many expected, California’s junior US Senator, Barbara Boxer, has announced she will not seek re-election in 2016. When she departs, the Congress will lose of one its most obnoxious, reflexive Leftists.  Boxer made her intentions official in a playful-ish YouTube video to supporters:

Obamacare-unpopular2Hope that you don’t have an allergy to schadenfreude, because this is the pure stuff: ” For years, Harvard’s experts on health economics and policy have advised presidents and Congress on how to provide health benefits to the nation at a reasonable cost. But those remedies will now be applied to the Harvard faculty, and the professors are in an uproar.” Turns out that adding mandatory procedures and extra coverage costs money; so does the ‘Cadillac tax’ on high-end plans like Harvard’s. So Harvard went and passed those extra costs to policy holders – like everybody else did – and said policy holders are, well, freaking out.

obama-cooperationPresident Barack Obama has a resolution for the New Year and the Republican-controlled Congress convening next week in Washington: Cooperate more and use executive actions less.

Obama has already used some quite extensive executive actions, including a decree on immigration reform, reports The Wall Street Journal, but he still has some top agenda items left to achieve during his last two years in office.

Some senior administration officials say that those priorities might stand a better chance of happening without Democrats in charge of the Senate.

But the six years since Obama first took office have been contentious ones, and while Republican leaders say they want to work with the president, aides told The Journal that the leaders don’t believe he’ll compromise with them.

A security firm has brought new evidence to the FBI that it claims points to a laid-off employee and others as the hackers behind the massive cyber-breach at Sony, even as the bureau publicly stands by its explanation that North Korea executed the attack.

Kurt Stammberger, senior vice president for market development at cyber intelligence firm Norse, told FoxNews.com that his company was turning over “raw data” to the FBI on Tuesday. He said the company also briefed the FBI for “two or three hours” on Monday during a meeting in St. Louis.

“They were very open” to the new information, Stammberger said.

A series of national surveys conducted periodically by Gallup since the 1970s indicate that Americans have consistently rated the honesty and ethical standards of police officers higher than local officeholders, state officeholders, governors, and members of Congress.

There’s nothing quite like the fury of a cornered political hack.  New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio gave a remarkable press conference on Monday afternoon where he blamed the media for creating the air of paranoia and racial tension currently hanging heavy over the Big Apple:

“What are you guys gonna do?  Are you gonna keep dividing us?” de Blasio demanded of reporters, angry at them for daring to report the ugly behavior of certain demonstrators.  You can tell from his body language that de Blasio feels the wall pressing hard against his back.  He needed a scapegoat, fast, and chose one of the few institutions less respected than he is at the moment.  That might not have been a smart pick, as politicians often learn when picking fights with the folks who buy ink by the barrel and pixels by the gigabyte.

Farah predicts millions will descend on House GOP before Congress reconvenes

Published: December 22, 2014

boehner_15-2WASHINGTON – Imagine 85,000 letters demanding House Speaker John Boehner be dumped personally addressed to each House Republican including the name of the sender delivered every day when Congress reconvenes in the first week of January.

If they were delivered hourly it would represent 3,542 every 60 minutes.  That’s 59 per minute.

Now, the “Don’t Be Yellow: Dump Boehner Campaign” won’t be delivering those letters every minute or every hour – just daily. But the 425,000 yellow letters generated by the campaign to date were ordered by Americans in response to the call from WND founder Joseph Farah in just five days.

Leftists are claiming the “white privilege” of NYPD Officer Daniel Pantaleo saved him from being charged for the death of Eric Garner, a claim which conveniently ignores white police abuse victims Kelly Thomas and James Boyd.

After a Staten Island grand jury chose not to indict the NYPD officer today for killing Garner with a chokehold during an altercation over untaxed cigarettes, numerous progressives and media pundits jumped on Twitter to complain about “white privilege” instead of focusing on police brutality which affects all Americans regardless of race.

Did Obama Order National Guard to Stand Down During Ferguson Riots?

Missouri Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder makes stunning claim

National Guard and police failed to protect businesses targeted by rioters during last night’s chaos, leading to charges that the Obama administration issued a stand down order.

Earlier this morning, Missouri Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder made the stunning claim, telling Fox News, “Is the reason that the National Guard was not in there because the Obama Administration and the Holder Justice Department leaned on you to keep them out? I cannot imagine any other reason why the governor who mobilized the National Guard would not have them in there to stop this.”

His comments followed Ferguson Mayor James Knowles’ complaint that his request for National Guard assistance was repeatedly ignored by Democrat Governor Jay Nixon last night.

Watch the video above to see Kinder and Knowles’ remarks.
