Top White House economic adviser Gene Sperling took to the Sunday morning talk shows to push for Congress to extend emergency unemployment benefits ahead of a key Senate vote Monday. Sperling, the director of President Obama´s National Economic Council, noted that "tomorrow is the day that 1.3 million Americans go to their mailbox and find that the check that they´d been relying on to put food on their table, put gas in their cars to look for a new job, will not be there" in an appearance on NBC´s Meet the Press. On that program and on CNN´s State of

Scott Walker: Unemployment benefits,
minimum wage push because Obama
´desperately´ wants to avoid Obamacare

Wisconsin governor Scott Walker dismissed the White House´s push to extend emergency unemployment benefits and raise the minimum wage Sunday morning, criticizing Democrats´ all-out push for legislation as an effort to distract from the recent problems with the new health care law. "They want to desperately talk about anything other than Obamacare,” the conservative Republican Walker told CNN´s Candy Crowley on Sunday morning. Walker appeared on the network shortly after Obama´s economic adviser Gene Sperling had come on to advocate keeping emergency unemployment benefits, which lapsed in December, in place.

Harry Reid: Blame Republicans if
2014 is as bad as 2013 in Congress

Majority Leader Harry Reid, Nevada Democrat, painted a bleak picture for 2014, and wouldn’t rule out another change to filibuster rules if Senate Republicans continue to block important legislation. “We’re not there yet,” he said Sunday on “Face the Nation.” “I’m not thinking about it today. But I think everyone should understand that the country can not continue on the road that it’s on.” Congress has a full plate of must-pass legislation over the next few months, including passing the appropriations bills that keep the government funded and raising the debt ceiling so the country doesn’t default on its debt.



Obama’s American Dream
Like One Giant Shave Ice

Yesterday’s Obama address to the puckered-from-cold proletariat from Hawaii: Now hear this, all you GOPers who went home for Christmas: You ruined the lives of the people who voted you in to serve them. Only Democrats get to go home for Christmas. The rules about going home for Christmas don’t apply to the ‘Community Organizer Born to be King’ . In all the lies he’s told to date, he’s not sure himself which place he can safely call “home”. And just to think he gave this address between rounds of golfing, going to his favourite restaurants and slurping on shave ice!

In like a lion, out like a lamb—or, it began with a growl, but ended with a whimper! What did? Why, Global Warming, naturally. Of course, it wasn’t supposed to end like this! Midwest wind-chill temperatures could hit -70° tonight, as meteorologists predict the lowest readings in decades. Meanwhile, in the arctic, pinned near glaciers, a second ice breaker must be freed by the US Coast Guard. This, after the first ice-breaker became trapped while attempting to rescue a research ship cruising to the South Pole to prove Global Warming!

Kudos to President Obama for giving his wife a birthday present we all can envy, indeed covet. CBS News reports: President Barack Obama is going to give his wife the birthday present that many parents can only dream of - time off, alone, without the children. The White House said on Saturday first lady Michelle Obama would stay in Hawaii, where the family has been on vacation for the last two weeks, rather than return home with her husband and their two girls. (Snip) Just imagine for a moment if President Obama would agree to leave the rest of us alone. How wonderful would that be? He does have it within his power to make the gift

Republican senators on Saturday blamed the Obama administration for Al Qaeda affiliates over-running parts of Iraq, including the city of Fallujah, which the United States secured before President Obama removed all U.S. forces from that country in 2011. Sen. John McCain, Arizona, and Lindsey Graham, South Carolina, called the recent turn of events “as tragic as they were predictable” and suggested Obama misled Americans into believing that Iraqi leaders wanted U.S. forces out of their country. “While many Iraqis are responsible for this strategic disaster, the administration cannot escape its share of the blame,” the senators said in a joint

In health care, 2013 was a year of great irony. In the United States, the Obama administration bullheadedly forged ahead in advancing the most controversial and expensive law in recent memory, the deceptively named Affordable Care Act. The law, opposed by a clear and consistent majority of citizens, immediately caused millions of Americans to lose their health insurance along with their choice of doctor and hospital, and millions more to pay far higher insurance premiums. While the focus has been on the embarrassing roll-out that, at a minimum, demonstrated both the incompetence and the poor judgment of this administration,

The daughter of a Jewish classmate of Anne Frank rescued from the horrors of Bergen Belsen concentration camp has met the British officer who saved her mother´s life. Grateful Elizabeth Kahn, 59, flew to Israel to meet Major Leonard Berney, 93, from Plymouth, Devon, and present him with a special silver platter paid for by the family in recognition of his heroics. Jewish Leonard, of the British 11th Armoured division, was one of the first army officers through the gates of Belsen when the camp was liberated on April 15, 1945. It is estimated that 50,000 inmates died in the notorious northwest German

Seven dangerous Al-Qaeda suspects are to be freed from Government curfews and able to walk the streets within days, it has emerged. The men, some of whom are suspected of plotting to kill thousands on transatlantic airliners, will no longer be bound by electronic tags or curfew restrictions after the terrorism prevention orders are lifted. The measures were introduced in 2012 to replace Labour government rules which, according to the Liberal Democrats, undermined the suspects´ human rights. However they only last two years unless the government can prove the suspects have engaged in ´new´ terrorist-related activity. Officials say such proof is hard if

A Georgia couple was shocked and disgusted to find a racial slur scrawled on a valet ticket after a night out at a local restaurant. After Candea and Sam Aarons had dinner at the Spondivits restaurant in East Point, Ga., on New Year’s Day, they found that the valet tag still affixed to their key chain had the phrase “jungle fever” written on one side. The phrase is a racial slur for an interracial couple. Candea Aaron said she initially didn’t notice anything unusual in their interaction with the valet, but in previous visits the tag was always removed from their key before they received it back. “I’ve never had their [valet] tag left

On Sunday, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney joined Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday for a wide-ranging interview about a number of political issues that dominated the landscape following the close of the 2012 election cycle. Romney dug into the Affordable Care Act’s roll-out, the contraception mandate which he signed into law in Massachusetts, and the Winter Olympics in Russia. Asked what “bothers” him the most about the ACA roll-out, Romney said that the onerous coverage requirements frustrated him the most. “it’s not just that the president tells people that they have to buy health insurance,” Romney said, “it’s that

HONOLULU - President Barack Obama is going to give his wife the birthday present that many parents can only dream of - time off, alone, without the children.

On Saturday, MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry offered an emotional, tearful apology for a New Year’s weekend segment that used Kieran Romney‘s appearance in a Romney family photo as a setup for jokes about diversity, and became a full-blown media conflagration. On Sunday, former Governor Mitt Romney appeared on Fox News Sunday to address the controversy, which host Chris Wallace called “a disgraceful political attack on a baby.” Last Sunday, Melissa Harris-Perry moderated a panel that set upon a Romney family photo as the pivot point for jokes about Republican lack of diversity. Harris-Perry’s own remarks were relatively innocuous, but panelist

Is Barack Obama entirely lacking in self-awareness, or does he simply think that his intended audience will believe anything he says? Maybe both. Otherwise it is hard to explain away the obvgious irony inherent in a president from Hawaii on a long winter vacation in Hawaii blasting his political opponents for going "home for the holidays." Dave Urbanski writes in The Blaze: While President Barack Obama continued what the New York Times called a "real and rare vacation in Hawaii," he used his Weekly Address to accuse Republicans in Congress of going home for the holidays while less-fortunate Americans suffer.

The agency responsible for implementing ObamaCare will release a report on Monday showing slow growth in national healthcare spending. The Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services (CMS) will brief reporters at the National Press Club on what the Obama administration has touted as a trend of slower healthcare spending growth since the implementation of the Affordable Care Act. The CMS data are considered the standard for determining U.S. healthcare spending statistics. Earlier this year, the White House released a report that showed healthcare spending has grown at the slowest rate on record and crediting the Affordable Care Act.

After 14 months, one Pittsburgh businessman still wonders: If everyone like him had voted in 2012, how differently might 2013 have turned out? The lifelong Democrat, who runs a five-man machine shop, regrets not voting for president in 2012. He admits President Barack Obama´s assault on Mitt Romney´s character cast just enough doubt in his mind that he believed the Republican nominee would favor Wall Street over Main Street, put Washington into political deadlock and keep the economy stubbornly at a standstill. He also believed he could keep his health-care plan — the one he liked — under Obama. “For me, the class-warfare slogans

Stroke patients are being left permanently disabled after having to wait more than a day for vital brain scans at NHS hospitals. Ideally, they should have a CT scan within an hour of arrival so that they can be given brain-saving drugs if doctors think they are suitable. [Snip] Yet at the worst eight hospitals, one in five patients waits more than 24 hours. According to figures from the Royal College of Physicians’ latest stroke audit, covering three months last spring, the average wait at the Royal Bournemouth Hospital--one of these eight--is above ten hours.

President Obama’s promise to be the most transparent administration in history is proving to be true with regard to the recent appointment of John Podesta as his high profile congressional circumvention strategist. Podesta’s belief in government by fiat is clear. As he wrote in a 2010 Center for American Progress report, “[executive power] presents a real opportunity for the Obama administration to turn its focus away from a divided Congress and the unappetizing process of making legislative sausage.” Amidst scandals and a disastrous ObamaCare rollout, Politico writer Glenn Thrush reported that White House insiders told him Podesta’s hiring “represents the clearest

More than 100,000 Americans who applied for insurance through HealthCare.gov and were told they are eligible for Medicaid or the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) remain unenrolled because of lingering software defects in the federal online marketplace, according to federal and state health officials. To try to provide coverage to these people before they seek medical care, the Obama administration has launched a barrage of phone calls in recent days in 21 states, advising those who applied that the quickest route into the programs is to start over at their state’s Medicaid agency. State officials, meanwhile, are racing to cope in various

The Church of England has been accused of "dumbing down" the baptism service by changing its wording so parents and godparents no longer have to "repent sins" and "reject the devil". A trial of the new wording, aimed at making it easier to understand, will last in parishes until Easter. The former bishop of Rochester Michael Nazir-Ali, writing in the Mail on Sunday, branded the change part of the "constant dumbing down of Christian teaching" rather than making an effort to explain the meaning of baptism. In the original version, the vicar asks: "Do you reject the devil and all
