Sen. Reid: Obama not at fault for Iraq unrest; Guess who Harry blames

http://twitter.com/#!/SenatorReid/status/421341908741271552 In 2012, President Obama campaigned on taking credit for ending the war in Iraq. Now that things appear to be sliding backwards, with Al Qaeda holding the cities of Fallujah and Ramadi, Harry Reid seems to want to make the end of the Iraq war all about Bush. Question of the day: http://twitter.com/#!/AG_Conservative/status/421353675672408064 Crickets.

President Emergency: Ari Fleischer puts unemployment benefit extension into perspective

http://twitter.com/#!/GaltsGirl/status/420592748710744065 No kidding. Earlier today, before Senate Democrats — and six Republicans — voted to invoke cloture on the bill to extend long-term unemployment insurance, former Bush White House press secretary Ari Fleischer made an interesting observation: http://twitter.com/#!/AriFleischer/status/420569108170563584 It’s certainly felt that way to us. Now, it’s worth noting that the Emergency Unemployment Compensation program was launched in 2008 during the Bush administration. But two wrongs don’t make a right. With the Senate voting to move the current […]

‘Sick over what’s happening in Iraq’: Amanda Carpenter blasts Obama admin

http://twitter.com/#!/amandacarpenter/status/477055221655678976 Heartbreaking. http://twitter.com/#!/amandacarpenter/status/477055453357441024 Ted Cruz adviser Amanda Carpenter retweeted this: http://twitter.com/#!/jimgeraghty/status/477051898105966592 Perhaps Obama will read about it in the newspaper … or at NRO: Al-Qaeda, the Obama administration has told us repeatedly, is on the path to defeat. Now it’s literally on the road to Baghdad. This week, al-Qaeda in Iraq, now known as ISIS, retook Iraq’s second city, Mosul, where it put up its last spasms of resistance back in 2008. Then it retook Tikrit, Saddam Hussein’s hometown, […]

“intermittent energy restriction”

Intermittent fasting, also known as intermittent energy restriction, is an umbrella term for various meal timing schedules that cycle between voluntary fasting (or reduced calorie intake) and non-fasting over a given period. Non-caloric, and sometimes low-caloric, drinks can be used during intermittent fasting, contrary to strict fasting which disallows fluid intake in some religious practices. Three methods of intermittent fasting are alternate-day fasting, periodic fasting, and time-restricted feeding. Intermittent fasting may be similar to a calorie restriction […]

O’Malley: Border kids would be in danger in ‘conservative part’ of MD

http://twitter.com/#!/GovernorOMalley/status/487763682625998851 “Certain death?” Really? Is there a genocide or plague occurring in Central America that only O’Malley is aware of? Or is Marty just being his usual overly dramatic self? Keep in mind that O’Malley is a staunch abortion supporter, so “certain death” for kids doesn’t always trouble him. http://twitter.com/#!/stevebruskCNN/status/489195169406001152 http://twitter.com/#!/JimAcostaCNN/status/489194479362916352 http://twitter.com/#!/IsaacDovere/status/489206014076784642 Baltimore is still on the table? That might be more dangerous than wherever these illegal immigrant kids came from. The Politico article gives O’Malley some cover by saying he […]

http://twitter.com/#!/SamValley/status/472443810216443904 Is there a “rule of threes” when it comes to political resignations? Many are hoping that’s the case now that the resignations of both Jay Carney and VA head Eric Shinseki have been announced.
