President Obama is now hoping that the gay community will "come out" and sign up for the embattled Obamacare plan, as a new video pandering to "the boys" has just been released to help with enrollment. Warning!! Refrain from eating anything at least one hour before or after watching this video.

O-Care ´fix´ extends
to bare-bones plans

The Obama administration is planning to allow individuals whose health insurance was cancelled under ObamaCare to buy catastrophic plans once intended mainly for young people. Under the plan, individuals who are unable to renew their current health insurance will be able to purchase bare-bones coverage, according to a source connected with the health industry.Current rules say that to qualify for a catastrophic plan, individuals must be either under 30 or qualify for a "hardship" exemption. The Obama administration´s new guidance will argue that individuals whose 2013 plans were canceled and who determine that other options are not affordable should be

It only took a few hours for a bipartisan congressional push against Iran´s nuclear ambitions to become Oval Office roadkill on Thursday, as the White House insisted that President Barack Obama will veto any effort to introduce new sanctions on the Islamic republic while the State Department works its diplomatic levers. A group of 13 Democrats and 13 Republicans in the U.S. Senate introduced a bill that would levy tough new penalties on Iran if it fails to prove by May that it has terminated its nuclear weapons program. But in his afternoon press briefing, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said

PETA: Christians Should Call
for Duck Dynasty Cancellation
PJ Media, by Bridget Johnson    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 12/19/2013 9:06:11 PM     Post Reply
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals released its reaction to the suspension of Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson by A&E: PETA wants A&E to do more than suspend one of the characters on Duck Dynasty for damning gays. We call on the channel to challenge the entire crew of duck slayers to ignore Sarah Palin’s self-serving slap on the back for spewing hate speech and deny that they are as anti-gay as they are anti-animal. All people who consider themselves followers of Christ should follow all His teachings—and that includes showing mercy, compassion, and kindness to all of God’s

Two cheers for Lindsey Graham -- not

September wasn’t a good month for traditional Republican foreign policy. Five out of the eight GOP members on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee voted against a resolution of military force against the Assad regime in Syria after it used chemical weapons on its own people. Two of them were 2016 presidential hopefuls: Senators Marco Rubio and Rand Paul, whose no votes confirmed that isolationism is now a force to be reckoned with in Republican politics. Yet on the other side of the debate was an old reliable voice in Lindsey Graham. “It is inconvenient, it is hard, it is complicated,

North Korea threatens to

North Korea has threatened to attack South Korea "without notice" in response to anti-Pyongyang rallies on the anniversary of the death of its former leader. The threat to launch an unannounced strike was conveyed in a fax sent from the North´s National Defence Commission to South Korea´s National Security Council, according to Yonhap news agency. It came shortly after several conservative groups held protests in Seoul on the second anniversary of the death of the military regime´s former leader Kim Jong-il. Some protestors reportedly burnt photographs of the current leader Kim Jong-un, an action condemned in North Korea as an

When Britain’s long decade of conflict draws to a close next year, with the completion of combat operations in Afghanistan, the perfectly reasonable response of many people will be: “Never Again.” To date, our involvement in Afghanistan and Iraq has cost the lives of 625 British servicemen and women, resulted in hundreds more suffering appalling injuries and cost us tens of billions of pounds. And that is just this country’s contribution. When you consider the trillions of dollars squandered by the Bush administration, as well as the military sacrifices made by other countries, the figures are truly mind-blowing.

The EU is in denial over the

Rarely has the economic gulf that separates the English-speaking world and continental Europe looked quite as wide as it does today. While much of the eurozone remains mired in an economic funk, Britain and America are recovering fast, with rising demand and near record levels of private-sector job creation. As if the last, crisis-ridden three years haven’t already given Europe’s policy elite enough to think about, this juxtaposition in fortunes must surely have awoken them to the truth: monetary union isn’t working. Unfortunately, the reality is that euroland continues to stumble blindly from one botched response to another, neither able

Obamacare’s ‘Pajama Boy’ was
accused of racism, anti-Semitism

Ethan Krupp, the little man who played “Pajama Boy” in a widely-mocked Obamacare ad, was accused in college of racism and anti-Semitism. Krupp, an Organizing for Action (OFA) content writer who became the face of progressive America when he sipped cocoa and smirked while wearing a onesie pajama suit in a recent Obamacare ad, is also a failed comedy writer whose work was not appreciated in his own time. Krupp was the editor of Wisconsin’s college-town “Madison Misnomer” as recently as 2010, noting that “Nothing is ever accomplished” at editorial meetings and “It probably won’t last more than another year.” But while

GUANTANAMO BAY NAVAL BASE, Cuba – The commander of the Guantanamo Bay naval base decided Wednesday to move Nativity scenes from two dining halls following complaints that the decorations improperly promoted Christianity. Both Nativity scenes will be moved to the courtyard of the base chapel, said Kelly Wirfel, a spokeswoman for Capt. John Nettleton, commander of the base in southeastern Cuba. The displays were set up by foreign contractors who manage the two dining facilities and were "not intended to endorse any religion," Wirfel said in response to concerns raised by the Military Religious Freedom Foundation. The group, which advocates

´Pajama Boy´ Makes Obama

Have you heard about “Pajama Boy”? He’s in an ad tweeted yesterday by a political nonprofit associated with President Obama, wearing what appears to be a plaid onesie while cradling a hot beverage and looking to one side through arched eyebrows. The point of the ad is to promote Obamacare among young adults. “Wear pajamas. Drink hot chocolate. Talk about getting health insurance,” says the ad copy.

State Department contract awards were posted this week for "Transportation services in support of Mandela Funeral" and "Accommodation in support of the Nelson Mandela funeral in South Africa." The accompanying Justification and Approval documents estimated the cost of transportation at a maximum of $8,286,194.74. The transportation contract covers only ground transportation in South Africa. Costs for Air Force One and other air travel are not included. Two contracts were listed for the cost of lodging: one for $2,042,850 for an estimated "3,240 lodging room nights" and another for $1,190,573 for an estimated "2,490 lodging room nights" stretching from December 6,

Democrats Preempt GOP Obamacare
Repeal Efforts, Suggest Congress

The White House and congressional Democrats say Republican efforts to repeal Obamacare will take away the benefits Americans are experiencing because of the health care law. In a conference call with reporters Thursday afternoon, White House advisor David Simas praised Obamacare´s provisions allowing America to remain on their parents´ health insurance plans until age 26 and outlawing the denial of coverage because of preexisting conditions. If Obamacare were repealed, Simas said, "all of these benefits across the board will be taken away." The conference call coincides with a new political effort by the White House to document the "cost of repeal." Simas added

Reid Protects Obama, Iranian

Iran: Protecting President Obama from embarrassment precludes protecting America from nuclear terror. That´s why Harry Reid is blocking a bipartisan coalition of senators from voting to increase sanctions on Iran. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., hit the detonator on the head Wednesday when he pointed out on the Senate floor that his Democratic counterpart "can´t stomach a vote on Iran sanctions" because "he knows the administration would lose that vote decisively, and he knows that many members of his own caucus would vote alongside Republicans to strengthen those sanctions." Reid was pushing through a defense spending bill under floor rules that

John Beale´s EPA

Last month we told you about John Beale, the Environmental Protection Agency employee who bilked taxpayers out of almost $900,000 by pretending to be a secret agent. Telling EPA colleagues that he was a CIA operative, Beale was paid for long absences while on imaginary missions for "Langley." Now there is a disturbing new question about John Beale that goes to the heart of the EPA´s mission. What was he doing when he actually showed up for work? In September, Beale pleaded guilty to theft of government property and agreed to pay $886,186 in restitution and to forfeit another $507,207. On

Trenton — Students who grew up in New Jersey but are in the country illegally will soon be able to pay in-state tuition at its public colleges and universities. After weeks of feuding between Republican Gov. Chris Christie and Democrats who control the Legislature over the so-called “DREAM Act,” the two sides reached a breakthrough today and agreed to a compromise. “I’m overwhelmed with joy,” said state Sen. Teresa Ruiz (D-Essex), the bill’s sponsor, as she fought back tears. Ruiz and state Senate leaders announced the deal at a press conference this morning, surrounded by students donning cap and

Redistribution: Imagine lower-income families watching their incomes drop while their tax burden goes up. Patently unfair, right? Yet it actually happened under President Obama. According to a Tax Foundation analysis of new IRS data, the bottom half of income-tax filers paid 36% more in taxes in 2011 than they did in 2010 — even though their incomes barely budged. The top half, in contrast, saw their tax burden climb only 9%. The average tax rate paid by the bottom half has climbed every year under Obama, going from 2.35% in 2009 to 3.13% in 2011. Viewed another way, the share of "adjusted gross

There are all sorts of time bombs embedded within ObamaCare. Will we force doctors to treat millions of new Medicaid patients who are signing up for services that can be only partially reimbursed? How will the IRS collect penalties from millions of off-the-books youth who choose not to buy coverage? For those who chose not to buy health insurance in the past, will these newly insured really follow through on their initial sign-ups with steady monthly premium payments? If not, how will we collect what they owe? Will all those who lost their coverage have enough money to buy the costlier

Penalizing Those Who Hold
Biblical Views of Marriage
National Review Online, by Ryan T. Anderson    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 12/19/2013 6:20:11 PM     Post Reply
A&E enjoys rights to free contract and free speech in determining whom they employ and what they allow them to say. But just because you have a right to do something doesn’t make it the right thing to do. In a series of instances we have seen the gatekeepers of civil society attack those who hold Biblical views about marriage and sexuality—Chick-fil-A, Barilla Pasta, Craig James who was fired from ESPN, and now Phil Robertson of Duck Dynasty. It is even worse, of course, when it is the government that penalizes those who hold Biblical views. That should be anathema in America.

  



Impeachment, 15 Years Later

Fifteen years ago today, the House of Representatives impeached a president for only the second time in history — and the first in well over a century. At some point, some fair-minded historian should go back and publish a thorough account of that year-long controversy, just to set the record straight. Some may argue over whether Clinton’s perjury and obstruction of justice amounted to “high crimes or misdemeanors,” but the case needs to be established for the record that Clinton did, without a doubt, perjure himself and obstruct justice. (I believe he also suborned perjury, among other misdeeds.) Moreover, it

A 41-year-old Gamaliel man, Wayne Motes, is in the Baxter County jail on a $15,000 bond after police say his 2-year-old son tested positive for methamphetamines. Mountain Home Police responded to 509 Ouachita for a disturbance call on Nov. 3. When they arrived, 39-year-old Stephanie Motes answered the door. Officers asked who was at the residence and Motes reportedly said she was there with a 2-year-old baby.

RUSH: The latest Fox News poll gives Obama a 41% approval rating among registered voters. But how about this. Only 37% of voters under 30 approve of the job the president´s doing. That´s a 17-point decline, folks, in one year among voters who represent what was once the core of the Obama coalition. These are the people to whom the president´s making an increasingly frantic plea to enroll in Obamacare, where that sick... Sorry. Yes, sick Pajama Boy ad. Do you know where you can get that?

RUSH: Ladies and gentlemen, as you are undoubtedly aware by now, the A&E network, which stands for Arts & Entertainment, has put the patriarch of Duck Dynasty, Phil Robertson, on indefinite hiatus. I think they´ve essentially fired the guy, and in the process, they have thrown away the largest audience on cable television. They´ve just thrown it away. They´ve thrown away all that advertising. I want to get into that aspect of this as it relates to what a free market is in a moment. But first, it is obvious that Robertson´s goose is cooked. The Duck Dynasty goose is

There are double dippers and then there is Patrick DeBlasio, a man with five public jobs in New Jersey. He now wants one more. DeBlasio wants to increase his workload by adding at least 10 hours a week as Highlands´ new chief financial officer. His annual compensation totaled $244,606 in 2012, according to state pension and payroll records. If hired in the new position, DeBlasio would be paid up to $65,000, a portion of which could be shared with an assistant, borough officials said.
