Russia news
Oct 31 2014 - Investor's Business Daily
Geopolitics: As Russian war jets buzz Europe, the ugly reality descends that it's a new world out there and U.S. leadership is weak and unreliable. An alarm clock is going off in Europe to end its welfare state and step up its defense.
Israel: Politics
Oct 30 2014 - Investor's Business Daily
Mideast: Administration officials anonymously hurl a profanity at Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. So much for candidate Obama's promise to "help our ally Israel achieve true and lasting security."

Will the sharing economy replace the State?
Oct 30 2014 - The Desert Sun by The Orange County Register
It’s a match made in nanny–state heaven. Having failed to ban Big Gulps in New York City, former Big Apple mayor Michael Bloomberg has dumped $85,000 into the campaign in San Francisco to pass Measure E — a two–cent tax on all “sugary drinks.”

President Obama
Oct 30 2014 - Investor's Business Daily by VICTOR DAVIS HANSON
This is an age when Americans were assured that the Affordable Care Act lowered our premiums. It cut deductibles. ObamaCare allowed us to keep our doctors and health plans, and lowered the deficit.
Oct 31 2014 - Investor's Business Daily by Andrew Malcolm
Heading into the last hectic weekend of the 2014 midterm election campaign, a couple of revealing findings stick out that are ominous for Democrats:
Oct 31 2014 - Investor's Business Daily
Competence: Word is being spread — likely by a well–known presidential aide — that an array of high–ranking administration officials will soon be replaced. But new people who think the same old way will solve nothing.
Oct 30 2014 - Investor's Business Daily
Leadership: President Obama this week tried to tamp down public concerns about the Ebola outbreak. But it's not the disease that has Americans so alarmed as the festering incompetence on display at the White House.

Democratic Party
Oct 31 2014 - The Dallas Morning News by CARL P. LEUBSDORF
President Barack Obama isn’t the only prominent Democrat keeping a low profile on the campaign trail this fall.
Editor's Comments:
What bias! "As a master of senatorial procedures, he will be an effective leader if his party again finds itself in the negative, occasionally obstructionist role that the GOP has played in recent years." Who is obstructionist? It is obviously Reed and Obama, not the Republicans who try to present alternative ideas that Democrats see to it that they don't meet the light of day. bbm

Voting fraud
Oct 31 2014 - Front Page Magazine by Matthew Vadum
Voting by illegal aliens and other non–citizens is so prevalent throughout the nation that it gave us Obamacare, according to a disturbing new study.

Theft: As "calibration errors" switch votes in Illinois and Maryland, an election watchdog group sues the latter over massive voting by noncitizens in one county after discovering voters registered in multiple states.

Campaign money
Oct 31 2014 - Burlington County Times by Martin Schram
With its gush of deceptive, distorting video ads, Campaign 2014 has at least given us this: Three out of the four branches of Washington's governance clearly have seen the light about dark money in politics.

Most politically savvy players in three branches — the executive, legislative, and, yes, the news media branch (it's time we admit that we, too, are players in how things happen in Washington) — now grasp the corrosive impact of the so–called "dark" or secret money in politics. Recent news stories make clear that record money amounts are flooding into our campaigns from sources that are not clear to voters. But, of course, it is never secret from the politicians.

Editor's Comments:
The bias in the "news" branch is worse than all the money poured into DC. In fact, it causes a lot of money to be sent to DC. bbm

Congress 2014
Oct 31 2014 - Investor's Business Daily by Charles Krauthammer
Is Tuesday's election really about nothing? Democrats might like to think so, but it's not.
Oct 30 2014 - Investor's Business Daily by JED GRAHAM
With control of Congress seemingly within their grasp, Republicans are looking forward to showing that they can govern.
Oct 31 2014 - Investor's Business Daily by JED GRAHAM
The battle for the Senate appears to be tilting the Republicans' way, but a number of close races leaves the possibility that the party will come up short — as it did in 2010 and 2012.
Oct 31 2014 - Mercury News by EUGENE ROBINSON
No matter how well Republicans do at the polls Tuesday –– and my hunch is they won't do as well as they hope –– the GOP won't be able to claim any kind of mandate. That's because they have refused to articulate any vision for governing.
Editor's Comments:
Republicans vote against more government. So they don't have a plan? Yes they do. It is to minimize government, something Robinson doesn't agree with. He wants the GOP to come up with more ways to involve government.
Governors 2014

Politics: The most important election in the nation on Tuesday may be the governor's race in Wisconsin, where labor unions are trying once again to oust an incumbent whom they've made public enemy No. 1.

Economists
Oct 31 2014 - Ludwig von Mises Institute by Frank Shostak
Frenchman Jean Tirole of the University of Toulouse won the 2014 Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences for devising methods to improve regulation of industries dominated by a few large firms. According to Tirole, large firms undermine the efficient functioning of the market economy by being able to influence the prices and the quantity of products.
Money
Oct 30 2014 - Caveman News by BILL B. MAY, PHD
We all think we know what money is. It’s the stuff we have in our pockets with which we can buy things we want or need. It is an asset in the normal definition of the word. But it is not like other assets. When you think of assets, you think of the house you own, less the mortgage on it. You think of the car in your garage, less any loan you might have on it. And you think of the money you have in your pocket or bank account, again less an borrowing you might have made with credit cards and the like.

Media bias
Oct 30 2014 - Front Page Magazine by Daniel Greenfield
The media starts hysterical panics the way that Burger King makes burgers, but now it’s bemoaning “hysteria” and “panic” over Ebola. It’s silly for Americans to be worried about a lethal virus that has killed thousands, the self–proclaimed experts insist. It’s time to get over our irrational Ebolaphobic fear of a deadly epidemic.

Oct 31 2014 - PJ Media by BRIDGET JOHNSON
Senators who have warned of a massive power grab with the Environmental Protection Agency’s “clarification” of protected waters are accusing the Obama administration of intentionally misleading the public to push the rule through.
Editor's Comments:
The EPA, as an arm of the Obama administration, is intent on regulating even the smallest bodies of water, including ponds (if you have one on your property). They want to curtail private property rights to ensure the federal government has total control over our lives. js

Our Own Hundred Years? War
Oct 31 2014 - Times Union, Albany NY by Thomas L. Friedman
In May, I visited Vietnam and met with university students. After a week of being love–bombed by Vietnamese, who told me how much they admire America, want to work or study there and have friends and family living there, I couldn't help but ask myself: "How did we get this country so wrong? How did we end up in a war with Vietnam that cost so many lives and drove them into the arms of their most hated enemy, China?"
Editor's Comments:
The context was different. Communism was a world threat. His analogy for Muslims is also faulty in that the religion itself is anti–liberty. bbm

Organ transplants
Oct 31 2014 - Investor's Business Daily
Health Care: There's a deadly shortage of transplantable organs in this country. Every day, Americans die because they're waiting on a kidney or a heart that isn't available. Clearly, the donation system we have isn't working.
Ebola
Oct 31 2014 - Town Hall by Michael Reagan
That is the legal and medical question of the hour.
Oct 31 2014 - Forbes.com by Henry I. Miller
The relentless, breathless and often lurid coverage by the cable news networks of the handful of Ebola cases in the United States has led to near–hysteria in some quarters. People with even several degrees of separation from Ebola patients are quarantining themselves, and in Portland, Maine, a teacher who had traveled to Texas for a conference was placed on a three–week paid leave of absence when she returned because she had stayed in a hotel ten miles away from Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas. (That is where Thomas Eric Duncan died of Ebola virus infection after having traveled to the United States from Liberia.)
Oct 30 2014 - Investor's Business Daily
Public Safety: To get other countries to send medical teams to West Africa, the State Department created plans to treat infected noncitizen doctors and health care workers in the U.S. This would put Americans' health at risk.
Oct 30 2014 - Investor's Business Daily by John Merline
President Obama keeps saying that a mandatory quarantine of health workers returning from Ebola–afflicted countries is wrong. But the reasons he gives don't make logical sense.
