A luxury automobile company in England has banished a long-time chaplain from visiting employees over fears the Christian minister’s presence might upset non-Christians. (Snip) Bentley Motors defended the move saying they had a wide range of faiths at the company and wanted to take a multi-faith outlook. “It would be very difficult to have somebody from each faith,” the company said in a statement to The Daily Mail. For the past 10 years Rev. Francis Cooke visited the shop floor at Bentley offering spiritual support for the men and woman making luxury cars.

The Cable reports: Clinton has pledged to remain in the job until Kerry is confirmed, which Obama said he was confident would happen “quickly.” The Senate is expected to take up Kerry’s nomination in early January, but multiple Republican senators have already said they won’t agree to a vote on Kerry’s nomination until Clinton testifies about the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi. Illness and a concussion has prevented Clinton from appearing thus far. Since she took to Peruvian TV to accept responsibility for the lack of security that played

Is it just me, or does Kwanzaa seem to come earlier and earlier each year? And let’s face it, Kwanzaa’s gotten way too commercialized. A few years ago, I suspended my annual Kwanzaa column because my triumph over this fake holiday seemed complete. The only people still celebrating Kwanzaa were presidential-statement writers and white female public school teachers. But it seems to be creeping back. A few weeks ago, House Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., complained about having to stick around Washington for fiscal cliff negotiations by accusing Republicans



Democrats Seek the Holy Grail
of Gun Control

Dianne Feinstein has announced that she will introduce sweeping gun control legislation in the Senate. Under her bill, countless standard handguns apparently would now be banned, and for the first time a federal register that may include many millions of gun owners, fingerprinted and photographed, would be created. (snip) There is a great deal to be said about this, and much that is still not known, such as the identification of the 120 firearms that are to be specifically banned, or the 900 that are to be exempted.

Who is Gabriel Sherman? Who is he, and what forces does he represent? Those are questions worth answering, because they speak to the tactics and methods of the left wing in America today. In his too-brief life, Andrew Breitbart always emphasized the importance of understanding how the left operates--the better to combat it. So we at Breitbart News, who seek to carry on Andrew’s work, feel a continuing obligation to expose the left and its ever-evolving methods. And so we return to Gabriel Sherman, because his career provides a window into the mechanisms of the contemporary left.

With Ted Kennedy Jr. ruling out a run for John Kerry´s senate seat, eyes turned to Barney Frank as a potential replacement. In an interview last week, Frank demurred but added he would not necessarily say "no" should he be offered an interim appointment. Governor Deval Patrick is tasked with the job of replacing Kerry until a special election is held in 2014. Barney Frank is retiring from the House of Representatives at the end of the year after a 30+ year tenure. However, recently Frank described himself as "tired."

Introduction: After a lengthy, self-imposed informational black-out, my high-level DHS contact known as “Rosebud” emerged with new, non-public information about plans being discussed and prepared for implementation by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in the near future. (Snip) DH: What’s going on now? RB: People better pay close attention over the next few months. First, there won’t be any meaningful deal about the fiscal crisis. This is planned, I mean, the lack of deal is planned. In fact, it’s necessary to pave the way for what is in the short term agenda.

The Oxygen Channel is taking a page out of Maury Povich´s playbook. The network is ordering up a new reality special to be called "All My Babies´ Mamas." And yes, the narrative is exactly what you think it is: Slated to premiere next spring, the special chronicles the complicated lives of one man, his children’s mamas, and their army of children, capturing the highs and lows of this extreme ‘blended family’ as they navigate their financially and emotionally connected lives. The special will double as a potential pilot should the ratings prove advantageous.

A White House official explains to ABC News that “congressional stupidity” is affecting the economy – not President Obama. “What we need is for the Senate Minority Leader not to block a vote and for Boehner to allow a vote,” a White House official told ABC News. “The hits to our economy aren’t coming from outside factors, they’re coming from congressional stupidity.” As Conn Carroll noted earlier this morning, Sen. Harry Reid is currently rounding up votes from Republican Senators for a tax package that would extend current tax rates for all incomes below $250,000

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid D-Nev. this morning blasted Speaker John Boehner for failing to bring the House of Representatives back to Washington to pass a deal on the fiscal cliff. “We are here in Washington working, while members of the House of Representatives are out watching movies and watching their kids play soccer and basketball and doing all kinds of things,” Reid said heatedly. Reid blamed Boehner for running the House of Representatives under a “dictatorship of the Speaker” insisting that he was more worried about keeping his Speakership than helping everyday Americans.

There is good news and bad news about climate. The good news is that science evidence has made it quite clear that the human contribution to a possible global warming is minor; in fact it cannot even be identified in the data record. The bad news is that the media and politicians pay no attention whatsoever to the science and are marching ahead full-speed with efforts to control CO2 emissions -- thereby hurting the economy, destroying jobs, and stunting economic growth. They are under the illusion that

Piers Morgan has done it again, this time saying that both the Bible and the U.S. Constitution are "inherently flawed" and need new "amendments." During Morgan´s Monday, December 24 broadcast of his cable spectacle, CNN´s British import once again attacked America´s most deeply held principles by slaming both the Constitution and the Bible. Morgan was interviewing Saddleback Church Pastor Rick Warren when he essentially went for the throat. "Both the Bible and the Constitution were well intentioned, but they are basically, inherently flawed. Hence, the need to amend it. My point to you about gay rights, for example,

President Barack Obama told ABC News´ Barbara Walters that he ran for re-election because he wanted "men with guns" around as his daughters, Malia (14) and Sasha (11), begin dating boys. The interview was the first that the President and First Lady have given since Obama´s re-election in November. It aired on Nightline on December 26. In its published highlights, ABC News has drawn attention to the Obamas´ comments about keeping the romance alive in their marriage, yet those remarks were followed by this exchange:

Documentary-maker and liberal activist Michael Moore said the reason for mass shootings in the United States is largely due to fear and racism, and on Christmas Eve he pleaded, “calm down, white people, and put away your guns.” In a blog post entitled “Celebrating the Prince of Peace in the Land of Guns,” while still calling for stricter gun-control laws, Moore said such laws will not stop mass killings because of “who we are” as a nation. “We are a country whose leaders officially sanction and carry out acts of violence as a means to often

In the coming weeks, Duncan said he plans to spend a lot of time visiting schools and communities -- to talk about gun violence: "I want to talk to gun owners and hunters and sport shooters and ask them, what should we do?

The first lady was asked, in an interview with ABC´s Barbara Walters released late Wednesday, why she had ruled out launching a bid for office herself.

Hybrid and electric cars need prominent labeling inside or out to warn firefighters and other rescuers of the hazards posed by their high-voltage systems after a serious crash, according to an influential industry panel. Hybrids or electrics should have inch-high letters or badges on both sides and the rear that are visible to first responders from at least 50 feet, says the committee of experts from SAE International, formerly known as the Society of Automotive Engineers, who looked at the issue.

New laws prohibiting both of those activities are among the dozens of regulations and changes taking effect in 2013. The new laws cover everything from prohibiting law enforcement officers from having sex with inmates on their way to prison to revising the term “motor vehicle” to exclude swamp buggies. More than 200 new laws will be on the books Jan. 1 and while some may seem silly or outdated others

The Obama administration´s chief environmental watchdog, EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson, is stepping down after a nearly four-year tenure marked by high-profile brawls over global warming pollution, the Keystone XL oil pipeline, new controls on coal-fired plants and several other hot-button issues that affect the nation´s economy and people´s health. Jackson, the agency´s first black administrator, constantly found herself caught between administration pledges to solve controversial environmental problems and steady resistance from Republicans and industrial groups who complained that the agency´s rules destroyed jobs and made it harder for American companies to compete internationally.

Over the last few months leading ladies have leapt to the defence of Hitchcock whose reputation has been tarnished in a drama based on the experiences of Tippi Hedren, who starred in The Birds and Marnie. According to The Girl, the BBC drama in which the Hedren is portrayed by Sienna Miller, Hitchcock subjected the former model to sexual harassment and physical abuse including threatening her with broken glass. In one scene the director lunges at Hedren and his attempt to kiss the actress borders on an assault. Her rejection, the drama alleges, was avenged by Hitchcock
