Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson’s newest appointee to his inner circle, chief of staff Christian Marrone, rose to Washington power player via the streets of Pennsylvania’s pay-to-play politics. Mr. Marrone acknowledged in court that as a Pennsylvania legislative aide he oversaw the private renovation of his politician boss’s mansion — all while drawing paychecks from taxpayers, according to court records reviewed by The Washington Times. Mr. Marrone was never charged, but prosecutors estimated that he spent 80 percent of his first year and a half in his state job doing the private work of state Sen. Vince Fumo, the records

How ObamaCare Misreads America

People learn from their mistakes. Or they can—and should. Which is the reason we should try to learn from the revelations of mistakes about health care and health insurance since the passage of ObamaCare. The evidence is not all in. But it seems that Americans are not behaving as ObamaCare´s architects—and many critics—expected. Start with the assumption that just about everyone wants health insurance. You can easily find polls that support this proposition. ObamaCare architects assumed that if you offered health insurance with subsidies for those with relatively modest incomes, those currently uninsured would flock to apply.

NEW YORK– Broadway Joe looked the part. Would you expect anything less? Joe Namath, New York football royalty as MVP of the third Super Bowl for the Jets, wore a fur coat for the coin toss. After a false start on the first attempt, the Seahawks called tails, and they were right. Seattle deferred to the second half. “Whatever was killed to keep Joe Namath warm won’t. I guess he’s not a PETA member,” Frank Mosco wrote. Meanwhile, PETA took issue

As our church service came to an end today, our pastor asked if we´d like to stay a bit longer to see a quick video featuring some of the Seattle Seahawks. Everyone seemed interested. This despite the fact that Broncos gear far outweighed any Seahawks swag in the chapel. Heck, the Bears, Chiefs, and Eagles were better represented than the team from the great northwest. Still, the congregation was ready to give the film a chance. Everyone was pleased that they did. The video featured Pastor Mark Driscoll of Mars Hill Church interviewing four Seahawks players and one assistant coach.

The New York Times runs this damning and powerful piece by Dylan Farrow, the adopted daughter of Mia Farrow. (Snip) Farrow’s powerful prose takes on elite Hollywood’s cone of silence around Woody Allen: What if it had been your child, Cate Blanchett? Louis CK? Alec Baldwin? What if it had been you, Emma Stone? Or you, Scarlett Johansson? You knew me when I was a little girl, Diane Keaton. Have you forgotten me? Woody Allen is a living testament to the way our society fails the survivors of sexual assault and abuse.

EAST RUTHERFORD - The Seattle Seahawks lead the Denver Broncos, 22-0, at halftime of Super Bowl XLVIII. The first Super Bowl played in New Jersey - and the first held outside in a cold-weather venue - kicked off in front of a MetLife Stadium crowd of 82,529 with a game-time temperature of 49 degrees. It did not make this the coldest Super Bowl ever, but you´d be hard-pressed to find someone in the building who would complain about that. The Seahawks scored on the first play of the game, and they didn´t need their offense to do it. Broncos QB

Scottsdale, Ariz. -- Kevin Stadler won the Phoenix Open on Sunday for his first PGA Tour title when playing partner Bubba Watson missed a 5-footer for par on the final hole. Stadler, the 33-year-old son of PGA Tour winner Craig Stadler, closed with a 3-under 68 for a one-stroke victory over Watson and Canadian Graham DeLaet. Stadler won in his 239th PGA Tour start, earning a spot in the Masters -- a tournament his father won in 1982. The Stadlers are the ninth father-son winners in tour history.

Nearly 30 years after the Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA) of 1986 was signed into law by President Reagan, ostensibly to fix the illegal alien problem once and for all, America begins 2014 embroiled in yet another bitter, divisive, gut-wrenching debate over the fate of tens of millions of illegals who reside here unlawfully. These tens of millions of uninvited and unwelcome peoples have settled here despite IRCA and despite the terrorist attack of 9/11 which should have caused our leaders to forcibly close US borders to unlawful entry. As US lawmakers struggle to find answers to this continuing problem, our

The first fumble of Super Bowl Sunday belonged to Mayor Bill de Blasio — who dropped the Staten Island Zoo’s groundhog early Sunday morning. De Blasio was trying to handle Staten Island Chuck when the anxious animal squirmed right out of the mayor’s hands and fell on his noggin. “Next year they’ll need a net,” said Ann Jackman, who was at the park with her 14-year-old daughter. “Look how tall he is. Can you imagine falling from that height?” Eventually, Chuck witnessed his shadow and ran back inside, predicting 6 more weeks of winter. “Chuck likes the polar vortex,” de

Transplant patients who are given smokers´ lungs are just as likely to survive as those who receive organs from non-smokers, a study has revealed. Nearly half of recipients were given the lungs of heavy smokers--with a fifth coming from donors who had smoked one packet of cigarettes or more a day for at least 20 years. But despite this, they were just as likely to be alive for up to three years after transplantation as those who had received non-smokers´ organs. Astonishingly, some patients even had higher survival rates--with more than 90 percent of smoking donors´ lungs alive after one

Last week, at the start of his new series whose second part shows tonight, Jeremy Paxman asserted that the First World War “forged the country we know today”. If so, did the Great War help forge the country we see depicted in Benefits Street, whose final part has been postponed until next week? [Snip]The most interesting so far is its point that the men who joined up in the early days can fairly be described as patriotic, rather than jingoistic or duped.

When I was first elected, one of the first lobbyists to darken my door was a highly paid man who was lobbying for “highway safety” in Florida. He said he was representing a nonprofit group concerned that the recent conversion of highway signs to metric was a safety hazard as people took their focus off the highway to figure out how far 50 kilometers was. I was curious and did a little research. It seems this group was heavily funded by the company that sold the reflective paint for the highway signs. No wonder they were suddenly concerned with safety.

President Barack Obama sat down with Fox News anchor Bill O’Reilly for a pre-Super Bowl interview, a reprise of the Q&A the two did before the 2011 game, and Obama’s sixth straight pre-Super Bowl interview. O’Reilly grilled Obama on why Kathleen Sebelius had not been fired, noting that he as a taxpayer was paying her salary, and also asked if Obama thought the “If you like your plan you can keep your plan” claim was his “biggest mistake?” Obama responded to both queries by arguing that the implementation of the Affordable Care Act was an ongoing process, and he was committed to

Heroin overdose deaths across the country are spiking as a deadly new variant of the drug mixed with a powerful painkiller is spreading from New Hampshire to Washington State. The lethal combination of heroin and fentanyl, an opiate used to soothe the pain of cancer patients, is blamed for about 100 deaths from coast to coast. It is variously labelled as ‘bud ice,’ ‘income tax’ and ‘theraflu,’ authorities say. The hardest hit states in the epidemic are Maryland, with more than three dozen deaths since September, and Pennsylvania, with almost two dozen this month alone, according to reports.

October 28, 2013 the governors of California, Oregon, Washington, and the premier of British Columbia signed a pact pledging to take a variety of actions to reduce carbon emissions. Supporters hailed the agreement as a landmark effort to move away from fossil fuel-based energy and “green” the states’ various economies. California already had a cap and trade regime, and British Columbia had imposed a carbon tax in 2008. Supporters of the plan worried that the actual policies it called for would get tied up in Oregon and Washington. Republicans controlled the Washing- ton state senate, supporters noted, and they’d been cool to some

Woody Allen responded Sunday to the accusations of his adopted daughter Dylan Farrow, who claimed that Allen sexually assaulted her when she was seven years old. “Mr. Allen has read the article and found it untrue and disgraceful. He will be responding very soon,” a rep for Allen told The Hollywood Reporter in a statement. Farrow published a letter yesterday detailing her suffering from alleged sexual assault by Woody Allen as a child. The director was never convicted of any crime relating to the allegations. Allen’s attorneys responded Sunday in a statement:“It is tragic that after 20 years a story

A spat between gun-maker Daniel Defense and the National Football League is over this pro-gun ad you won’t see during this year’s Super Bowl. It features a Marine Corps veteran going through his daily life with his family and child. “It’s been a long road getting here, and a lot has changed since I got back,” he says. “I am responsible for their protection, and no one has the right to tell me how to defend them.” “So I’ve chosen the most effective tool for the job.” As the foreboding music plays in the background, you could cut the tension

Top House Republicans slammed President Obama’s embrace of executive action to move his agenda forward on Sunday, saying the president’s freelancing creates a trust deficit that makes bipartisan legislating more difficult. “We have an increasingly lawless presidency where he is actually doing the job of Congress, writing new policies and new laws without going through Congress. Presidents don´t write laws, Congress does,” Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., told ABC. “Executive orders are one thing, but executive orders that actually change the statute, that´s totally different.”

WASHINGTON— Days after House Republicans unveiled a roadmap for an overhaul of the nation´s broken immigration system, one of its backers said legislation is unlikely to pass during this election year. Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., said distrust of President Barack Obama runs so deep in the Republican caucus that he´s skeptical the GOP-led House would pass any immigration measure. He said a plan that puts security first could only pass if lawmakers believe the administration would enforce it — an unlikely prospect given Republicans´ deep opposition to Obama. "This isn´t a trust-but-verify, this is a verify-then-trust approach," Ryan said. Last

In November, the U.S. Postal Service reported it had a $5 billion loss for Fiscal Year 2013, its seventh consecutive year with loss. At the time, Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe blamed Congress for the loss, citing an “inflexible business model.” “We’ve achieved some excellent results for the year in terms of innovations, revenue gains, and cost reductions, but without major legislative changes we cannot overcome the limitations of our inflexible business model,” Donahoe said. “Congress is moving forward with legislation that has the potential to give us greater flexibility and put us back on a firm financial footing

For decades, Toshiaki Toyoshima has followed the same ritual each morning at his downtown restaurant: He ties on his indigo happi — a short-sleeved Japanese chef´s jacket — and dons a white cap before he begins cutting fish for nearly 500 customers who dine at Sushi Gen daily. But in January, Toyoshima´s tradition-bound routine was upset. He had to add a step: A new law now forces him to snap on a pair of thin vinyl gloves before he can touch the fish. His gloved hands seem to move no less deftly as he stands behind mounds of tuna fillets
