CBS News correspondent Lara Logan has been rushed to a DC area hospital, suffering from internal bleeding.

Logan, a correspondent for “60 Minutes,” was admitted to the hospital on Wednesday with digestive disease diverticulitis and internal bleeding, a network source told Page Six.

The source said her condition could have been brought on by stress, and Logan, 43, is expected to remain in the hospital for at least a few days to recover.

I REFUSE TO TAKE THE MEDIA’S BAIT

Written by Gov. Scott Walker

Americans believe our nation is facing some substantial challenges. Government spending is out of control. Terrorists seek to destroy our way of life. Our economic recovery has been slow. Our borders aren’t secure. The federal government has usurped powers that rightly belong to our states.

And every day across Wisconsin, and as I travel the nation, I hear from people who share with me their worries about – and their hopes for – our country.

They worry about whether their children in college will be able to find a good job after graduation. And as a dad with two sons in college, I worry right along with them.

They talk to me about the rise of terrorist attacks and ISIS, and what it means for our security at home, and for Americans and our allies abroad. We all pray for American sons and daughters in the military and their safe return home.

I hear from people who lost their jobs and are back in the workforce but who still have not quite made it back to where they were before the recession – and they wonder when, or if, they’ll ever get there.

Across party lines and state lines, Americans want America to be secure and prosperous again. And they’re looking for leaders who can focus on that goal and who will get results.

One thing we’ve learned in Wisconsin through all our challenges and successes over the past four years, is when we keep our focus on what matters to the people, we earn their respect, if not always their agreement. And, in a purple state that hasn’t gone to a Republican presidential candidate in 30 years, our approach has translated into three wins in four years.

There has been much discussion about a media double standard where Republicans are covered differently than Democrats, asked to weigh in on issues the Democrats don’t face. As a result, when we refuse to take the media’s bait, we suffer.

I felt it this week when I was asked to weigh in on what other people said and did and what others’ beliefs are. If you are looking for answers to those questions, ask those people.

I will always choose to focus on what matters to the American people, not what matters to the media.

Scott Walker is the Governor of Wisconsin.

Isis In All 50 States

article-2674736-1F46221200000578-100_634x381

In less than two years, ISIS has gone from a terror start-up overseas to what FBI Director James Comey calls a “chaotic spider web” in the US, with young Muslim men being radicalized in Illinois and the 49 other states. Comey suggests ISIS uses social media like a job fair. That’s how he says terrorists snagged three New York men facing ISIS charges.

Remember Obama called ISIS a JV team compared to Al qaeda:  “The analogy we use around here sometimes, and I think is accurate, is if a jayvee team puts on Lakers uniforms that doesn’t make them Kobe Bryant.”

Obama Imposes Gun Control

As promised, President Obama is using executive actions to impose gun control on the nation, targeting the top-selling rifle in the country, the AR-15 style semi-automatic, with a ban on one of the most-used AR bullets by sportsmen and target shooters.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives this month revealed that it is proposing to put the ban on 5.56mm ammo on a fast track, immediately driving up the price of the bullets and prompting retailers, including the huge outdoors company Cabela’s, to urge sportsmen to urge Congress to stop the president.

Two Disturbing Developments

Top Navy Admiral Warns China Now Has More “Fairly Amazing Submarines” Than The US
Vice Admiral Joseph Mulloy, deputy chief of naval operations for capabilities and resources, who testified before the House Armed Services Committee’s seapower subcommittee that China “is building some fairly amazing submarines and now has more diesel- and nuclear-powered vessels than the United States,” although he admitted their quality was inferior.

Couple that with the size of our army: the smallest since 1946!

The Democrats always seem to get us to a point where America goes to war and we elect Republicans to fight it.

Damn it!

Loretta Lynch cleared a key vote in the Senate Judiciary Committee Thursday in her bid to become the nation’s next attorney general, picking up support from three Republicans on the panel in favor of her confirmation.

The vote was 12-8. The three Republicans who backed her nomination, along with all committee Democrats, were Orrin Hatch of Utah, Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Jeff Flake of Arizona.

Those lousy RINOs. What difference does it make to give power to Repubs, when they kick us in the nuts every time any major vote comes up that is bad for conservative Americans.

Phyllis Schlafly assails GOP establishment for trying to coronate Jeb Bush

By Ralph Z. Hallow – The Washington Times – Sunday, February 22, 2015

Phyllis Schlafly has long argued that the American conservative movement’s purpose is to influence, not echo, the Republican Party.

And still going strong at age 90, Mrs. Schlafly wants to influence the GOP anew by warning against letting the party’s “kingmakers” — the Wall Street elite and political consultant class — coronate former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush as the presidential nominee in 2016.

Mincing no words, Mrs. Schlafly makes her case in a 2015 update to her landmark book a half-century ago titled “A Choice, Not an Echo,” which in 1964 became the motto of Barry Goldwater’s grassroots movement.

In her update, Mrs. Schlafly argues that her party picks losers as candidates too often because of a stranglehold by the political consultant-big business-Wall Street crowd, which she argues makes a bundle from championing moderates over conservatives.

She warns that may be happening again in 2016 in the persona of Jeb Bush.

She notes “closed-door events have been held for Republican mega-donors to select who will get the big money that went last time to Mitt Romney” and that the mainstream media already are cheering on Mr. Bush.

As evidence, she cites a New York Times article about how “Jeb Bush is so smart, so intellectual, and so well-read. We were told that he is a ‘top-drawer intellect’ and a voracious reader who maintains 25 books on his Kindle, books such as George Gilder’s ‘Knowledge and Power.’”

Mrs. Schlafly urges grassroots conservatives to rise up and resist a coronation of Mr. Bush.

“Do you get the message that the media buildup for Jeb Bush has begun and that the 2016 Republican National Convention may simply nominate for president another Establishment loser candidate?,” she writes. “But it doesn’t have to be. Some of us remember Everett Dirksen’s famous speech at the 1952 Republican Convention when he publicly taunted the kingmakers, ‘We followed you before and you led us down the path to defeat.’”

Dinner with John and Helen

Home Ownership rate

Home Ownership rate

We were invited to have dinner with our neighbors John and Helen on Thursday before we left Portland. It was a very nice thing to do. We had slaved all day packing, cleaning and taking furniture and stuff to storage. The food was delicious and the conversation was lively. Both John and Helen were optimistic about the economy and disagreed of my harsh assessment. Of course we disagreed about Obama, and global warming, too.

I see the possibility of the US collapsing into another depression. That was one reason we were happy to have sold our house so rapidly.

Tonight, I just pulled up an article at Zero Hedge by Michael Snyder via The Economic Collapse blog. He writes:
“If our economy was working the way that it should, the middle class would be thriving.

“But instead, it is being systematically destroyed. If you doubt this, I have some statistics that I would like to share with you. The following facts come from my previous article entitled “The Death Of The American Dream In 22 Numbers“…

“#1 The Obama administration tells us that 8.69 million Americans are “officially unemployed” and that 92.90 million Americans are considered to be “not in the labor force”. That means that more than 101 million U.S. adults do not have a job right now.

“#2 One recent survey discovered that 55 percent of Americans believe that the American Dream either never existed or that it no longer exists.

“#3 Considering the fact that Obama is in the White House, it is somewhat surprising that 55 percent of all Republicans still believe in the American Dream, but only 33 percent of all Democrats do.

“#4 After adjusting for inflation, median household income has fallen by nearly $5,000 since 2007.

“#5 After adjusting for inflation, “the median wealth figure for middle-income families” fell from $78,000 in 1983 to $63,800 in 2013.

“#6 At this point, 59 percent of Americans believe that “the American dream has become impossible for most people to achieve”.

“You can read the rest of that article right here.”

We will miss the lively discussions with John and Helen. We will have to wait awhile to see who is right. Being right in my case would not make me happy.
