Two massive uprisings have rocked Ukraine and Venezuela. Neither toppled the countries’ tyrants, but the one more likely to succeed is in Ukraine, where resistance is no longer passive.” – Investors.com

“I will not explain to you what is happening in Kiev tonight other than to say that it is Vladimir Putin’s worst nightmare. ” – New Republic

“In a preview of the U.S. military’s planned integration of females into combat positions, female skiers and snowboarders have been wiping out at disproportionate numbers at the Extreme Park in Sochi. Unlike traditional ski runs, which vary in difficulty according to whether they are designed for males or females, the course for highflying snowboarders and freestyle skiers is largely unisex: Females are expected to navigate the same jumps as the males. The result has been an avalanche of female falls and injuries: Of the 22 accidents that either forced athletes out of the competition or required medical attention on the final run, 16 involved female skiers, reports the New York Times, even though far fewer females than males actually essay the course.” – National Review

In freshman congressman Tom Cotton, Pryor has drawn a particularly troublesome opponent. Cotton isn’t just an Arkansas-bred, Harvard-educated, hyper-articulate constitutional scholar. He’s also a combat veteran who served as a commissioned Army officer both in Iraq and Afghanistan. And Cotton is no wilting flower in calling Pryor out for his Obamacare vote and fidelity to the highly unpopular Obama administration.” – Scott McKay/American Spectator

House Republicans next week will pass a legislative package aimed at making federal regulations more transparent and less costly to the economy.” – The Hill

Barack Obama will be remembered for many things during his two terms in office, but high on the list, right after lying to everyone about everything, will be his determination to waste billions of taxpayer dollars on every Green scheme from solar and wind energy to electric cars, and now on ‘climate change.'” – Heartland.org

“Last week, John Kerry burned 12 tons of carbon to travel to Indonesia and declare global warming as the biggest WMD of all. In what has become the general model of climate-change alarmism, he told his audience that Jakarta would soon be half-submerged thanks to the rising of the oceans that the election of his boss supposedly stopped. The Chicken Little spectacle was so embarrassing that Newt Gingrich suggested that Kerry should retire out of embarrassment, if not national security. ‘A delusional secretary of state,’ Gingrich tweeted, ‘is dangerous to our safety.’” – Hot Air

“First Mitt Romney loses a presidential election that he was predicted to win in a walk. Then he appears some 15 months later on Sunday’s ‘Meet the Press’ to lecture the nation on how Republicans might lose the presidential election once again. ‘I don’t think Bill Clinton is as relevant as Hillary Clinton if Hillary Clinton decides to run for president in 2016,’ Mr. Romney opined. Perhaps he forgot that Bill was elected president 21 years ago promising that a vote for him would mean acquiring two presidents ‘for the price of one.’ Mr. Romney, Hillary is actually pretty tightly entangled with Bill, now and forever. May I suggest that you read up on their peculiar relationship? They are even closer than Bonnie and Clyde.” – Bob Tyrrell/American Spectator
