The Media´s Most Outrageous
Olympic Outbursts: Saluting the Socialists
Newsbusters, by Geoffrey Dickens    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 2/6/2014 3:48:50 PM     Post Reply
Sports fans checking in on coverage of Team USA at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia might want to brace themselves for unexpected outbursts of liberal preaching from reporters covering the games. Over the years the MRC has documented lefty reporters and writers using the games to celebrate socialist policies, bash expressions of patriotism and even work in jabs against Republicans, like when Bryant Gumbel, in 2006, complained that the “paucity” of black athletes “makes the Winter Games look like a GOP convention.” In the spirit of the games, the most outrageous journalists are competing with each other in

Pelosi Deserves Her
Planned Parenthood Award
Cybercast News Service, by Dr. Alveda King    Original Article

It´s true that Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi deserves Planned Parenthood´s Margaret Sanger Award - almost no one has done more to promote the killing of innocent babies in the womb than she has. If Mrs. Pelosi wants finally to take her role as a public servant seriously, though, she will reject the award named after a racist woman who had no problem speaking to a Ku Klux Klan meeting. The Sanger Award has been given annually by Planned Parenthood since 1966, when the Rev. Dr. Luther King, Jr., my uncle, was named, but did not personally accept one of the first four citations.

A senior adviser to Russian President Vladimir Putin has accused the US of meddling in Ukraine, in breach of a 1994 agreement over non-intervention. Sergei Glazyev said the US was spending $20m (£12.3m; 14.8m euros) a week on Ukrainian opposition groups, supplying "rebels" with arms among other things. (Snip) Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych is due to meet Mr Putin on Friday in Sochi, on the opening day of the Winter Olympic Games there. He held talks in Kiev with US Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland on Thursday, at which he said he favoured dialogue and compromise with the opposition.

Michelle Obama Pitches Student
Aid: ´Almost Everyone Is Eligible´

"Almost everyone is eligible for some form of financial aid, and all you have to do to access that aid is fill out this one little form. It´s so simple," First lady Michelle Obama told students at a suburban Washington high school on Wednesday. The form is FAFSA -- the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. "[T]hrough FAFSA, the Department of Education provides more than $150 billion every year in low-interest loans, in grants that you don´t have to pay back, and work-study programs that can help cover your educational expenses," Mrs. Obama said. She equated higher education with freedom:

Sochi terror threat shows the truly

When, during the early phase of Syria´s brutal civil war, Russian President Vladimir Putin warned the West against undertaking military intervention in Syria, his arguments were dismissed as nothing more than a blatant attempt to save the Assad regime, Moscow´s long-standing regional ally. But now that, on the eve of tomorrow´s opening ceremony at the Sochi Olympics, American intelligence agencies are warning that terror cells are planning to blow up airliners bound for the Olympics with explosives hidden in toothpaste, the Russian president´s warnings do not look so far-fetched after all. Moscow´s long-running battle with Islamist dissident groups in places

Obama at Prayer Breakfast: ‘Killing the

At the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington, D.C. on Thursday, President Barack Obama said that “killing the innocent” is the “ultimate betrayal of God’s will.” But the president was talking about terrorism, not abortion: “Extremists succumb to an ignorant nihilism that shows they don’t understand the faiths they claim to profess, for killing the innocent is never fulfilling God’s will. In fact, it is the ultimate betrayal of God’s will,” Obama said. Yet Obama is a long-time supporter of abortion rights.

The Obama administration is considering an extension of the president´s decision to let people keep their individual insurance policies even if they are not compliant with the health care overhaul, according to two top industry officials. Avalere Health CEO Dan Mendelson said Thursday that the administration may let policyholders keep that coverage for an additional three years, stressing that no decision has been made. Policymakers are waiting to see what rate hikes health insurers plan for the insurance exchanges that are key to the overhaul´s coverage expansions. "The administration is entertaining a range of options to ensure that this individual market has

Democrats were ecstatic in 2010 when they learned that ex-Governor Kitzhaber was still willing to run for office again. No reason to vet someone with his liberal experience and history. It was basically anyone but a Republican, something of a mantra in Oregon politics. But it seems that Oregon has replicated the same mistake the voters did with the Presidency: elect a Czar instead. Chris Dudley, the governor’s opponent, remember him? No matter what you might have thought of him, he would never have ok’d a Cover Oregon. But I digress.

Vitamin C shows promise as cancer therapy

Intravenous vitamin C – combined with conventional chemotherapy – can kill cancer cells, the University of Kansas Medical Center reported. In a study of 27 patients newly diagnosed with stage 3 or stage 4 ovarian cancer, researchers found that patients who received a high-dose of intravenous vitamin C, along with conventional cancer therapy of paclitaxel or carboplatin, experienced fewer toxic effects from the chemotherapy drugs. Researchers also conducted a rodent study and observed that an intravenous infusion of vitamin C was able to kill cancer cells without noticeable toxicity or pathological changes in the liver, kidney or spleen. Vitamin C was used

We’ve all seen the wooden crosses and other roadside memorials to loved ones killed in automobile accidents. Three years ago, the Georgia Department of Transportation, deeming the makeshift memorials a distraction to drivers and a safety hazard, began offering to place state-approved memorials at the sites of fatal wrecks. For a $100 fee, GDOT places a white sign with the name of the deceased under the words, “Drive Safely, In Memory.” Wednesday, a member of PETA, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, filed an application with GDOT to have a memorial placed at the Hall County site where a

One of the most high-profile victims of the IRS Tea Party targeting scandal is planning to unveil surprising new allegations about the top Democrat on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee at a hearing this morning. Catherine Engelbrecht, the head of election integrity group True The Vote and Tea Party group King Street Patriots, alleges Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) demanded information from her group in a similar manner to the IRS, according to her testimony. “Hours after sending letters, he would appear on cable news and publicly defame me and my organization,” Engelbrecht said.

Newly reported details about a 52-minute sniper attack on a central California electrical substation last year are raising concerns from Capitol Hill and beyond, amid questions over whether it was the work of terrorists. The April 16, 2013, attack had not been widely publicized until The Wall Street Journal reported new details in a story on Wednesday. The attack reportedly started when at least one person entered an underground vault to cut telephone cables, and attackers fired more than 100 shots into Pacific Gas & Electric’s Metcalf transmission substation, knocking out 17 transformers. Electric officials were able to avert a

Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C. blasted President Obama for "pre-judging" the outcome of the IRS investigation for targeting Tea Party groups who applied for tax-exempt status. Gowdy referred to Obama´s assertion in a Fox News interview that there was “not even a smidgen of corruption” in the IRS case. "How can he possibly draw that conclusion?" Gowdy asked, pointing out that former IRS official Lois Lerner invoked the Fifth Amendment and refused to testify. "I understand why she invoked her Fifth Amendment privilege; I don´t understand why in the hell the president of the United States would prejudge an investigation before any

U.S.-led forces in Afghanistan are investigating Taliban claims that they have captured a dog from a military unit. Militants released video Thursday showing a dog they claim to have captured from American forces fighting in Afghanistan. The U.S.-led International Assistance Security Force confirmed a dog had gone missing. The nationality of the dog was unclear, with U.S. military officials in Washington saying it belonged to a British unit. Britain’s Ministry of Defence said it was still investigating. Surrounded by bearded insurgents, the sheepish-looking, reddish-brown canine is pictured being held on a lead by a long haired man, wearing a harness

The president of Hobby Lobby discussed his company’s ongoing lawsuit against the Obama administration regarding the contraceptive mandate, which goes before the Supreme Court March 25 for oral arguments. Steve Green’s arts-and-crafts chain is suing the administration over the requirement that the company provide its employees with abortifacient drugs or face fines of $1.3 million per day. Hobby Lobby objects because its owners, the Green family, believe that their faith prohibits abortion. Green sat down with reporters on Wednesday morning for his first on-the-record interview to discuss the lawsuit. The following is a transcript of the interview, edited for clarity

Two titans of comedy made news this week for their candid comments about what they consider funny and why they choose certain people or issues for their fodder. In an interview with “BuzzFeed Brews” which aired Tuesday on “CBS This Morning,” Jerry Seinfeld was asked why his latest project “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” didn’t feature more comics of color. The interviewer added, “I have noted the guests are mostly white males.” Seinfeld’s response? “This really pisses me off.” He continued, “People think it’s the census or something.

When one has retired from the ranks of American domestic political consulting, as I have, you are not really allowed to just quit. You become emeritus, of counsel, senior status and God knows what. Basically your role becomes one of trying to talk active participating democratic consultants to not, as current politics would have it, “jump off the bridge.” There appears in both public and private to be more than usual pessimism and gloom about Democratic chances in 2014. Allow me to point out the following facts — yes, facts, not opinions. Last week’s Washington Post/ABC News poll found that fewer than

Three cheers, hip-hip hurrah. Those who fret that the 103rd birthday of Ronald Reagan on Thursday would come and go without much ado can take heart. There’s big, cheerful doings planned in the tenth year since his passing. We’re talking music by the Camp Pendleton Marine Division Band, a color guard, a brass quintet, a 21-gun salute, an official aircraft flyover, the blessings of a chaplain and the placing of an official White House wreath — all this at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, California. “President Reagan is one of few presidents where Americans remember the man,

As celebrity gossip goes, it takes some beating: actress and model Elizabeth Hurley has year-long affair with Bill Clinton while he was US President. Throw in the suggestion that they had a liaison in the White House while Hillary Clinton was next door, and that Mr Clinton ended it when he realised he was falling in love, and you have a story that rivals Marilyn Monroe’s alleged fling with John F Kennedy. But when something sounds too good to be true, it usually is, as Miss Hurley pointed out on Wednesday when she was forced to deny the “ludicrously silly”

In his new “Kristol Clear” prediction segment on Morning Joe, Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol augured Thursday morning that Sarah Palin might run for president in 2016. “I mean, why wouldn’t she run?” he asked, causing NBC News White House correspondent Chuck Todd to answer what was probably a rhetorical question. “I think it’s a financial reason,” Todd said. “To get back into the spotlight.

In an abrupt switch from his months of work to bring immigration reform back from life support, Speaker John Boehner told reporters today that the issue cannot move forward until President Obama proves he can be a trustworthy partner to implement the law as written. “There´s widespread doubt about whether this administration can be trusted to enforce our laws. And it´s going to be difficult to move any immigration legislation until that changes,” Boehner said. The change in tack comes after rank-and-file members pushed hard against action on the issue this year when immigration “principles” when unveiled at a retreat last week

Well, fancy that.

[Snip] "…there are also good reasons to believe that a nation, untied from the bureaucracy of Brussels and able to make decisions for itself rather than have imposed one-size-fits-all policies will benefit economically…" You don´t say.
