U.S. Official Says Federal Investigators Connect Sony Hacking to North Korea

USA Today
WASHINGTON - U.S. authorities have determined that North Korea is behind the recent cyber attack on Sony Pictures, a federal law enforcement official said Wednesday.

The official, who is not authorized to comment publicly, said a formal announcement of attribution by the U.S. government could come as soon as Thursday.

Sony Pictures Entertainment was hit by hackers Nov. 24. A glowing red skeleton appeared on screens throughout the Culver City, Calif.-based Sony subsidiary.

The hack appears to have been because of The Interview, a comedy that features James Franco and Seth Rogen as tabloid TV journalists who score an interview with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.


Eric Bolling on Cuba: "Fantastic Policy Move By President Obama" (VIDEO)

Ugh. Did he not hear anything Marco Rubio said today at his press conference?

Eric Bolling on tonight's Fox News 'The Five' only sees the move from an economic perspective, at least that what it sounds like here.

Take a listen- "Fantastic"


McCain, Graham: Obama Writing New Chapters in American Foreign Policy- Appeasing Dictators, Thugs and Adversaries

'Friends demoralized and enemies emboldened'

Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) released the following statement opposing President Obama’s plans to normalize diplomatic relations with Cuba:

"We agree with President Obama that he is writing new chapters in American foreign policy. Unfortunately, today’s chapter, like the others before it, is one of America and the values we stand for in retreat and decline. It is about the appeasement of autocratic dictators, thugs, and adversaries, diminishing America’s influence in the world. Is it any wonder that under President Obama’s watch our enemies are emboldened and our friends demoralized?

Unfortunately, we fear the most damaging chapter to America’s national security is still being written. We dread the day President Obama takes to the podium to announce a nuclear deal with the Iranian ayatollahs which does little, if anything, to deter their nuclear ambitions, placing our nation and our closest allies in even deeper peril"


O'Reilly: If Elizabeith Warren Was Elected President, She'd Make Obama Look Like Ronald Reagan (Video)

Liberalism in America--

Bill O’Reilly said that Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren “is emerging as the face of liberal America.”

O’Reilly explained that some on the left believe that Hillary Clinton is too socially moderate, so they are encouraging Warren to run for president.

According to O’Reilly, Warren also “wants stringent government control of firearms, robust health care subsidies, and government-mandated wages for low-paid workers.”

“In short, she is a classic liberal thinker who believes Washington should control the lives of individuals for the collective good.” O’Reilly said that some younger Americans, minority voters, and left-wing baby boomers view Warren as a hero.

He said, “If Sen. Warren ever gains the White House, she'd make Barack Obama look like Ronald Reagan.”


Rubio on Obama's New Cuba Policy: 'The White House Conceded Everything'...'This is a Victory For The Oppressive Cuban Government'

Marco Rubio blasted President Obama Wednesday for promising to normalize relations with Cuba's communist regime.

Rubio, whose family fled Cuba, slammed Obama as “the single-worst negotiator we’ve had in the White House in my lifetime” and promised to use whatever leverage he has in the 114th Congress to oppose an easing of trade and travel restrictions.

“It is a victory for the repressive Cuban government and a serious setback for the repressed Cuban people,” he said. “The White House has conceded everything and gained little.”


Michael Moore: 'Cuba’s Pissy Whiny Neighbor Grows Up'

...'Thank U Obama'

The left’s favorite documentary maker responded to President Obama’s move to normalize full diplomatic relations with Cuba in what is being deemed as “the most significant shift in U.S. policy toward the communist island in decades.” The president’s announcement of restoring relationship between the two countries, said Michael Mooore, showed that Cuba’s “pissy whiny neighbor” has finally grown up

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) had a much different response to the president’s moves to restore the political relationship with Cuba, arguing that rather than furthering human rights, it would only serve to solidify the Castro regime:

"This is going to do absolutely nothing to further human rights and democracy in Cuba," Rubio said in a recent interview. "But it potentially goes a long way in providing the economic lift that the Castro regime needs to become permanent fixtures in Cuba for generations to come."

Video- David Letterman Mocks Jeb Bush In ‘Top Ten’ Segment

"If I run, who will rig the election in Florida?"

On Tuesday, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush announced that he was exploring the possibility of running for president in 2016 and predictably CBS Late Show host David Letterman had a field day with the Republican’s announcement.

During his Tuesday evening show, the CBS comedian announced the “questions Jeb Bush is asking himself while actively exploring a run for president.” Unsurprisingly, Letterman’s 10 “questions” were merely liberal attacks on Bush such as “Am I sure I won’t embarrass the family?”

People Magazine's June Hillary Clinton Issue The Worst Selling of 2014

Her book 'Hard Choices' was a total dud.  Her personal approval rating has plummeted. She recently said we should 'empathize' with our enemies. She gives policy speeches to half-empty arenas.   A large number of candidates Hillary campaigned for and endorsed in the midterms  went down in flames. Nobody, including her can name one accomplishment she had as Secretary of State.  Now her face on the cover of People magazine is the worst seller of the year 

And 2016 Republicans are supposed to be worried about her? Gimme a break.

washingtonpost reported:
In June, Hillary Rodham Clinton appeared on the cover of People magazine for the first time in more than a decade. Real people, not the magazine, talked about what the article might mean for 2016. They talked about whether Clinton was using a walker (she wasn't). They talked about people talking about whether Clinton was using a walker (She still wasn't).

What they didn't do was buy the magazine. According to a report from AdWeek on Monday, the June 16 issue of People featuring the former first lady and senator was the magazine's worst selling of 2014 with 503,890 copies sold. The magazine's best-selling issue --1,169,800 copies -- was the one featuring Robin Williams after his death in late August.

AdWeek said that celebrity weeklies saw poor performances with issues that featured the Kardashians and Beyonce on the cover.


NATO Has Intercepted More Than 400 Russian Flights This Year

Russian jets now flying with transponders off which is posing a real risk to civilian air traffic

NATO has warned Russia that its military flights pose a threat to civil aviation in the Baltic region after a close encounter between a Russian air force jet and a Swedish airliner, Reuters reports.

A Russian jet flying with its transponder locator switched off on Friday caused a commercial flight from Denmark to Poland to abruptly change course. The near collision elicited a strong rebuke from NATO’s secretary general:

“It is not only a question of increased … flights but it’s the way they’re conducting the flights. They are not filing their flight plans and they are not communicating with civilian air traffic control and they are not turning on their transponders,” NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg told a news conference on Monday.

“That poses a risk to civilian air traffic. The important thing is that NATO stays vigilant and that we intercept the Russian flights.”

Russia denied its aircraft had posed any hazard to the airliner
NATO said its aircraft have intercepted more than 400 Russian flights this year, a 50 percent increase from 2013.
