President Obama’s buzzed on suds great adventure | Fox News

President Obama was absolutely swamped the other night, staving off the munchies at a pizza party in the Mile High city, hobnobbing as headliner at numerous Democrat shindigs, collecting big bucks from big donors all day.

Whew. Exhausting. Especially exhausting must be trying to change pace and pivot through the fundraising parties, knowing they’re thrown by those much maligned “fat cats” (Obama’s words, not mine).

The president conveniently disparages these fat cats in public, but in private their group hugs are a whole lot of cuddlin,’ purrin’ and rolling over for more tummy tickling from the one who feeds them. And it wasn’t hairballs any felines coughed up Tuesday just to hear Obama talk…and talk…and talk some more.

Our commander-in-chief is busy, as Rome burns.

‘WHAT A FREAKIN’ LIE’! Reuters, Yahoo busted for bogus headline about Obama at border [pics]; Update: Headline changed, still wrong

Originally posted on Twitchy:

President Obama really gets around. After all, those funds aren’t gonna raise themselves! In a short span of time this week, the president has spent time in Denver, Dallas, and Austin, where he’s shot pool and raised money for the DSCC, DCCC, and DNC.

But if you ask Reuters, he’s been busy at “the border”:

President Obama visits the border

That photo was taken in Denver. As in, Colorado. As in, not even a border state.

Scroll through Reuters’ slideshow posted at Yahoo! News, and you’ll see pictures Obama in several places — none of which could remotely be considered “the border”:

The NSA Is Targeting Users of Privacy Services, Leaked Code Shows | Threat Level | WIRED

If you use Tor or any of a number of other privacy services online or even visit their web sites to read about the services, there’s a good chance your IP address has been collected and stored by the NSA, according to top-secret source code for a program the NSA uses to conduct internet surveillance.

There’s also a good chance you’ve been tagged for simply reading news articles about these services published by Wired and other sites.

This is according to code, obtained and analyzed by journalists and others in Germany, which for the first time reveals the extent of some of the wide-spread tracking the NSA conducts on people using or interested in using privatizing tools and services—a list that includes journalists and their sources, human rights activists, political dissidents living under oppressive countries and many others who have various reasons for needing to shield their identity and their online activity.

The source code, for the NSA system known as XKeyscore, is used in the collection and analysis of internet traffic, and reveals that simply searching the web for privacy tools online is enough to get the NSA to label you an “extremist” and target your IP address for inclusion in its database.

Facebook removes ‘Kill Kendall Jones’ page: On second thought, it does ‘violate our Community Standards’

Originally posted on Twitchy:

Well how ’bout that?

As Twitchy noted on Wednesday morning, Facebook deleted hunting photos posted by 19-year-old Kendall Jones, but insisted that the “Kill Kendall Jones” page did not violate the social network’s Community Standards and would not be removed. That page included the same photos Jones was banned from posting.

After a flood of complaints and negative press, Facebook revised its decision.

On Wednesday, a Facebook rep appeared baffled by the suggestion that there were “credible threats of violence.” On a page titled “Kill Kendall Jones.”

Gazette opinion: Obama earned the low ratings

Sometimes, you have to admit you’re wrong.

And, we were wrong.

We said that things couldn’t get much worse after the sub par presidency of George W. Bush.

But, President Barack Obama’s administration has us yearning for the good ol’ days when we were at least winning battles in Iraq.

The latest NBC/Wall Street Journal polls show that Americans are giving Obama lower marks than in 2006 when Iraq was going poorly for Bush and a tepid response to Hurricane Katrina sunk Bush’s ratings.

It’s not that popularity polling should be the final or even best measure of a president. There is that old saw that points out there’s a difference between doing what is right and what is popular.

For us, though, it’s the number of bungled or blown policies in the Obama administration which lead us to believe Obama has earned every bit of an abysmal approval rating.

Let’s recap some of the mistakes:

H/T Eric Worrall and Breitbart – Obama’s inability to make a decision on Keystone has finally yielded a result – Canada has made the decision for him.

Breitbart reports Canada has just approved the Enbridge Northern Gateway Project – a major pipeline to ship Canadian oil to Asia.

The Canadian oil will still be burnt – in Asia, instead of America.

Obama announces US troops WILL be sent to Iraq to protect American embassy | Mail Online

President Obama announced on Monday evening that US ground troops ‘equipped for combat’ are being sent to Iraq – just days after claiming that no American soldiers would be deployed to the war-torn country.

In a letter to Congress, the president said American troops will be returning to Iraq only three years after they left and their deployment began on Sunday.

Obama said that their only purpose will be to protect U.S. personnel and the embassy in Baghdad – and not to join in the fierce fighting raging outside the Iraqi capital.

The president did tell Congress, however, that American military personnel in Baghdad will be ‘equipped for combat.’

Environmental Groups Have Lost the War Against Fracking

Fracking Protest, Matt Rourke AP Article CaptionGuest essay by Steve Goreham

Hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, a technique to remove natural gas and oil from shale formations, has been under withering assault from environmental groups for much of the last decade. Fracking has been blamed for contamination of drinking water, air pollution, earthquakes, water shortages, global warming, radiation discharge, and even cancer. But it appears that environmentalists have lost the battle against fracking.
