Children with cancer ´denied
drugs because of EU rules´
BBC News, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 2/10/2014 10:21:24 PM     Post Reply
EU rules must be changed to allow more testing of potentially life-saving cancer drugs on children, say experts. The UK´s Institute of Cancer Research (ICR) says the current system acts as a disincentive to drug companies who can seek waivers to avoid doing the trials. Of 28 new cancer drugs approved in the EU for adults since 2007, 26 could potentially work in children, but 14 have been exempted from child testing. The ICR wants these "class waivers" to be scrapped. The European Commission is considering whether to change its guidelines.

John McCain, former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, Newt Gingrich, Donald Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), and other notable Republicans warmly wish Palin a happy birthday and thank her for her contributions to the conservative movement. Highlights from the video: Condoleezza Rice: “Congratulations on making it to 50, I’ve been there a long time. It’s really okay.” Phil Robertson

A fresh start for Hillary
Clinton and liberals?

WASHINGTON — As Hillary Rodham Clinton mulls a second presidential bid, liberals are closely watching whether the onetime supporter of the Iraq war moves to the left or straddles the center. Democrats say economic issues such as raising the minimum wage and protecting Social Security have become paramount for anyone aiming to lead the party after years of tough economic times. During the 2008 primary campaign against Barack Obama, Clinton was hurt by her stand on the Iraq war while she was a senator. But she burnished her image among party loyalists during four years at the State Department in the

or Democrats, 2016 is the year they hope to shatter the nation´s highest and toughest glass ceiling. But so far, the party´s self-declared glass ceiling cracker has the party´s other women waiting on her. While Hillary Clinton makes up her mind about whether to make another White House bid, other Democratic women with presidential ambitions aggressively insist they´re not running this time around. They´ve signed a letter encouraging Clinton to jump in. They´ve gone to early nominating states to tout her candidacy — while sometimes turning down their own invitations to those same states for fear of sending signals that they´re

More ObamaCare Delays Won’t Save Dems

From its inception, the strategy behind the Obama administration’s implementation of ObamaCare has been simple: to frontload the benefits and postpone the pain and costs of this massive government intrusion into the private sector for as long as possible. This deceitful approach enabled President Obama run for reelection in 2012 on the spurious promise of extending insurance coverage to the poor and those with pre-existing conditions without being held accountable for the problems with the law that would only become apparent in his second term. Over the course of the last year, as the president’s signature accomplishment debuted with a

Krauthammer’s Take: In the End,
Obama Will Cancel Employer Mandate

Late this afternoon, the Obama administration decided to delay for yet another year the health-care mandate that companies provide health insurance to their employees, this time to 2016. “It’s a double whammy here,” Charles Krauthammer said on Special Report tonight. Combining the recent CBO report finding that millions of Americans will choose to work less because of Obamacare and the people who will lose their jobs involuntarily as a result of the mandates, Obamacare is looking like a huge liability come November, Krauthammer explained. “They are getting tremendous complaints from small business that they can’t do this. It will destroy

President Obama will host at least six fundraisers for Senate Democrats ahead of the 2014 midterm elections, a Democratic aide said Monday. The president´s commitment comes after he huddled last week in the Oval Office with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee Chairman Michael Bennet (D-Colo.) and DSCC Executive Director Guy Cecil. According to Politico, which first reported the fundraisers, the fundraising appearances will include trips to New York and the Washington suburbs in the "coming weeks." The president is also planning to hold fundraisers for Senate Majority PAC, the outside group dedicated to preserving Democratic

Judicial Watch announced Monday that it received documents through a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit showing that Admiral William McRaven ordered the immediate destruction of any photos of Osama bin Laden’s death within hours of a Judicial Watch FOIA request. According to the Pentagon documents, McRaven sent his email on “Friday, May 13, 2011 5:09 PM.” The documents do not detail what documents, if any, were destroyed in response to the McRaven directive. The Judicial Watch FOIA lawsuit seeking the documents was filed in the United States Court for the District of Columbia only hours earlier. Judicial Watch also announced the

Mexican vigilante groups have paraded through a stronghold of the Knights Templar drug cartel in the troubled state of Michoacan. The vigilantes had driven into Apatzingan on Saturday, backed by armoured vehicles and troops. On Sunday, they drove round the town shouting slogans before convening at the city´s main square. The groups began an offensive last month aimed at ending the drug gang´s activities in Michoacan. The government recently reached a pact with the groups, granting them temporary legal status by redefining them as Rural Defence Corps. The Knights Templar cartel controls much of the drug trafficking in the area, carrying out killings and kidnappings

The New York Times makes a rush

The defenestration of Woody Allen started Feb. 2 with a column in the New York Times by Nicholas Kristof. He began by saying all the right things: that allegations against Allen of sexually molesting Dylan Farrow, the 7-year-old daughter of his onetime companion Mia Farrow, had never been proved and that Allen “should be presumed innocent.” Then Kristof threw Allen out the window. Waiting below was a mob of people who felt as Kristof did: There must be something to the allegations. Left unsaid in the Kristof column, but figuring mightily in public opinion, was the perception of Allen as odd,

WASHINGTON — After news broke today that the Obama administration unilaterally decided to delay the health insurance mandate for medium-sized employers until 2016, Rep. Doc Hastings (R-Wash.) tweeted a cartoon of a football refs moving the goalpost farther and farther away from the end zone. “The Obama Administration once again moving the goalposts on #Obamacare,” Hastings tweeted. Beginning next year, businesses that employ 50 to 99 workers will have to report statistics to the government on how many employees are being offered or are receiving health insurance. These employers won’t be assessed penalties on the non-insured until 2016, though. Businesses

Global warming hasn’t stopped, the heat’s
just HIDING deep within the Pacific Ocean,
claim scientists
Daily Mail (U.K.), by Ellie Zolfagharifard    Original Article

Powerful winds in the Pacific Ocean, which have driven surface heat deep underwater, could be the reason behind the current ‘pause’ in global warming. This is according to a joint Australian and U.S. study which has looked at why there has been a slowdown in the planet’s global average surface temperature over the past decade. Their research shows that trade winds in central and eastern parts of the Pacific have caused warm surface water to sink to the ocean´s depths, reducing the amount of heat in the atmosphere. Last year, scientists on the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) said the pace of

Socialism, not access to health

Each passing day is more incriminating for President Obama´s Obamacare, as the news is like a relentless prosecutor amassing evidence against a serial killer. Yet the more evidence that rolls in condemning the president´s "signature achievement" -- wouldn´t you love to have that albatross hung around your epitaph? -- the more entrenched Obama becomes, making clear that his heart is not with the American people or their needs but stubbornly fixated on self. His singular goal is not to provide "affordable health care" but to slay those who are trying to take his "baby" away from him, with the deranged obsession

A Nasa spacecraft orbiting the red planet has found the ´strongest indication´ that liquid water may still exist on the Martian surface. Images taken by Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter reveal ´finger-like´ markings on Martian slopes. Experts say that although they do not yet have a ´smoking gun´, they believe the markings are made by minerals which could not have left without flowing liquid. ´The features are dark, finger-like markings that advance down some Martian slopes when temperatures rise,´ Nasa said. The new clues include corresponding seasonal changes in iron minerals on the same slopes and a survey of ground temperatures and other traits at active

Hillary Clinton claimed that husband Bill didn´t have sex of ´any real meaning´ with Monica Lewinsky and the former White House intern was a ´narcissistic loony toon´, explosive secret documents have revealed. The former First Lady made the frank remarks to her best friend in 1998 as the American public reeled from Lewinsky´s claims of nine sexual encounters with the president in the Oval Office. Days after the news of the affair broke, Hillary stood stone-faced beside her husband as he vehemently denied any such liaisons took place at a press conference, uttering the now infamous statement: ´I did not have sexual

Speaking with reporters from the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel last month, Democratic Rep. Gwen Moore (D-Wis.) said she was “so relieved when [Obama] won,” and would give Obama an ‘A’ in his second term if he would “just occupy the spot.” When asked by a reporter to give a progress report on Obama’s second term and to grade him, Moore declined to at first saying, “I´m not going to give Obama a grade. I’m glad he’s there. A Grade compared to what? Compared to Mitt Romney being there?” She then compared Obama’s second term to what would have happened if Romney had won. “No,

Jimmy Fallon will get a visit from an old pal during his first week overseeing The Tonight Show. First Lady Michelle Obama, who famously cut a rug with Fallon in drag for a comedy sketch, will be among the show´s guests during the first week of Fallon´s time as host. The two clicked last year for the viral video The Evolution of Mom Dancing. More importantly, Fallon has done some heavy lifting on behalf of her husband. Fallon´s old Late Night perch invited the president on to "slow jam" the news, essentially letting Barack Obama push his agenda via the comedy format during

Obama Rewrites ObamaCare
Wall Street Journal, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 2/10/2014 8:18:53 PM     Post Reply
´ObamaCare" is useful shorthand for the Affordable Care Act not least because the law increasingly means whatever President Obama says it does on any given day. His latest lawless rewrite arrived on Monday as the White House decided to delay the law´s employer mandate for another year and in some cases maybe forever. ObamaCare requires businesses with 50 or more workers to offer health insurance to their workers or pay a penalty, but last summer the Treasury offered a year-long delay until 2015 despite having no statutory authorization. Like the individual mandate, the employer decree is central to ObamaCare´s claim of

The Seattle Children’s Hospital is suing Washington state’s insurance commissioner over a “failure to ensure adequate network coverage” in the insurance exchanges established as part of the Affordable Care Act. “We’re seeing denials in care, disruptions in care. We’re seeing a great deal of confusion and, at times, anger and frustration on the part of these families who bought insurance thinking that their children would be covered,” a doctor with the hospital said. “And, in fact, it’s a false promise.” A recent CBS News report detailed the experience of one mother whose child recently came down with an ear infection.

WASHINGTON -- A captain’s “reckless decision to sail into the well-forecasted path of Hurricane Sandy” was the probable cause of the HMS Bounty sinking off the North Carolina coast in 2012, the National Transportation Safety Board said in a report released Monday. The captain, 63-year-old Robin Walbridge, and one crew member, 42-year-old Claudene Christian, died in the accident. The remaining 14 crew members, three of whom were seriosuly injured, were rescued by the Coast Guard.

While penning praise of Obama´s White House Chief of Staff, liberal columnist Albert R. Hunt of Bloomberg also took a moment to call the IRS harassment of conservatives a "faux scandal." Hunt´s op-ed is filled with wide-eyed praise of Obama´s Chief of Staff, Denis McDonough, calling him "skilled" and "efficient." McDonough is a "high-energy" guy praised by both Republicans and Democrats, Hunt is pleased to say. Along with the effusive praise, Hunt also added a sentence taking a shot at those who feel that Obama and his IRS have abused their power to harass conservative groups in hopes that they would give

Big Government: A 20-year-old memo says Hillary Clinton backed a single-payer socialist health system, believing ObamaCare-like mega-regulation to be "a crock." As president, she´d double down on government control. It´s buried over 60 paragraphs into Alana Goodman´s investigative article in the Washington Free Beacon this week about unpublished documents exposing Clinton´s ruthlessness. Among the papers of Hillary adviser and close friend Diane Blair at the University of Arkansas is an account of a Feb. 23, 1993 White House dinner Blair attended. The first lady had just launched her secretive health care task force pushing a "managed competition" approach to reform. Hillary commented "at

Democrats are picking up where they left off in 2013, lying to the public about Obamacare. The president says his signature program has signed up more than nine million Americans so far through the state exchanges and Medicaid expansion. He´s made this claim on numerous occasions, including last month´s State of the Union address, and during his Super Bowl Sunday conversation with Bill O´Reilly. We´ve noted that the president´s math doesn´t add up; his exchange enrollment figures don´t factor in a substantial subset of non-payments, which experts estimate to be in the vicinity of 600,000.

Teach for America, a non-profit organization that recruits teachers for low-income schools, is placing candidates who came to America illegally but have been granted Deferred Action status. In 2012, President Obama established a program known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). Obama’s executive action provided 560,000 illegal immigrants, who came into the U.S. as children, permission to work here if they pursue education as a career. These immigrants call themselves “Dreamers” after the failed federal DREAM Act, which would have granted them green cards. Co-CEO of Teach for America Elisa Villanueva Beard insists, “It’s just an incredible opportunity for
