WASHINGTON – Thought HealthCare.gov had problems? Another federal government-run website created under ObamaCare is suffering the same symptoms as the troubled federal health care exchange -- grappling with delays, data problems and other hiccups as the deadline to take it public nears. At issue is a database known as the Open Payments website. It was created under the Affordable Care Act to shed light on the financial ties between doctors and pharmaceutical companies as well as device manufacturers. The transparency initiative is supposed to include detailed information about drug payments made by doctors as well as the value of gifts and services given

The U.S. joined four European partners on Monday condemning the escalation of violence in Libya, where Islamists seized control of Tripoli’s airport at the weekend, but also criticized airstrikes against those same Islamists, although without identifying the source of the air attacks. While forces led by a renegade Libyan general fighting the Islamists, Khalifa Hifter, claimed responsibility for the airstrikes, U.S. officials pointed a finger at Egypt and the United Arab Emirates (UAE). U.S. officials told the New York Times that the Obama administration had been surprised by the strikes by Egypt and the UAE, which had not coordinated their action with

The leftist media have inflated the ego of the current regime… It’s how you get a Nobel Peace Prize for doing nothing noble or prize worthy. Vocativ was on Martha’s Vineyard over the weekend to film a piece about the African-American community on the island. While we were shooting on Beach Road, one of the busiest thoroughfares on the Vineyard, the Secret Service approached and asked us to switch off our camera for 15 minutes. A moment later, first lady Michelle Obama power walked by our crew. She was out for some exercise with a small group—and a serious security

Islamic activists that strong-armed the FBI to purge anti-terrorism training material considered “offensive” to Muslims have made their next wave of demands, which include an overhaul in the way all law enforcement officers are trained in the United States. The coalition of influential and politically-connected Muslim rights groups is demanding that the Obama administration implement a mandatory retraining program for all federal, state and local law enforcement officials who may have been subjected to materials they deem “biased and discriminatory” against Muslims. There must also be an audit of all federal law enforcement and intelligence gathering training and educational materials to

Lois Lerner’s Blackberry was intentionally destroyed after Congress had begun its probe into IRS targeting of conservative groups, a senior IRS lawyer acknowledged in a sworn declaration. Thomas Kane, Deputy Assistant Chief Counsel for the IRS, wrote in the declaration, part of a lawsuit filed by Judicial Watch against the IRS, that the Blackberry was "removed or wiped clean of any sensitive or proprietary information and removed as scrap for disposal in June 2012." That date - June 2012 - is significant because by that time, ex-IRS official Lerner had already been summoned before congressional staffers who interviewed her about

Troy Schmidt’s jaw dropped. A few minutes before, he had been preparing to start his seventh year as chaplain for the Olympia High School football team in Florida. But now, those plans had been changed – radically changed. “I received a call from the coach,” Schmidt told me. “He said Orange County Public Schools is no longer allowed to have chaplains as a part of the football program.”

What Obama doesn’t get about
the Islamic State

A day before the Islamic State released a video of the brutal execution of American journalist James Foley, President Obama declared at a White House news conference that defeating the Islamic State was not his responsibility. “We’re not the Iraqi military, we’re not even the Iraqi air force,” Obama said, adding “I am the commander in chief of the United States armed forces, and Iraq is gonna have to ultimately provide for its own security.” That attitude — that refusal to lead — is precisely why the Islamic State has been able to take control of a swath of the Middle

Environmentalists Try To Connect
Ferguson And ‘Climate Crisis’

Frequently criticized for being insufficiently diverse, environmentalists are trying to draw parallels between the crisis erupting in Ferguson, Missouri and global warming. “It was not hard for me to make the connection between the tragedy in Ferguson, Missouri, and the catalyst for my work to stop the climate crisis,” writes Deirdre Smith, strategic partnership coordinator for the environmental group 350.org. Smith ties the “institutional neglect of vulnerable communities in crisis” into the environmental movement’s war against fossil fuels, which she claims hit minority communities the hardest. “To me, the connection between militarized state violence, racism, and climate change was common-sense and intuitive,” she

WASHINGTON - Hundreds of thousands of dollars in alleged payments by Drug Enforcement Administration personnel to an Amtrak employee are being investigated by the Justice Department inspector general´s office. The announcement by Jay Lerner, a spokesman for the IG´s office, follows the disclosure by Amtrak´s inspector general that DEA paid an Amtrak secretary $854,460 over nearly 20 years to obtain confidential information about train passengers that the drug-fighting agency could have lawfully obtained for free through a law enforcement network.

A cannabis-infused fizzy drink is now on sale in the state of Washington as part of the ever-expanding US market for legal pot products.

The drinks, called Legal, come in cherry, lemon and pomegranate flavours but are all infused with 10mg of liquid cannabis. The drinks cost around $10 (£6). They are being marketed as a gentler alternative to smoking that could be attractive to those still wary about cannabis. "It´s much more approachable, as opposed to ´Hey, mom

A congressman Tuesday said "evidence of fraud appears to be present" as a federal watchdog issued subpoenas in its investigation into Maryland´s deeply troubled Obamacare health insurance exchange. The now-fired lead contractor for that exchange, Noridian Healthcare Solutions, told CNBC.com it received such a subpoena at the end of July in connection with the probe of how federal funds were spent on the Maryland exchange. Companies or entities associated with the Maryland Health Benefit Exchange have also received subpoenas in connection with the investigation, according to sources familiar with the situation.

More than 1,400 children were sexually abused during a period of over 16 years by gangs of paedophiles after police and council bosses turned a blind eye for fear of being labelled racist, a damning report has concluded. Senior officials were responsible for “blatant” failures that saw victims, some as young as 11, being treated with contempt and categorised as being “out of control” or simply ignored when they asked for help. In some cases, parents who tried to rescue their children from abusers were themselves arrested. Police officers even dismissed the rape of children by saying that sex had

Obama’s Speech To The American
Legion Was Painfully Awkward [VIDEO]
Daily Caller, by Brendan Bordelon    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 8/26/2014 4:51:27 PM     Post Reply
It wasn’t exactly the roaring, adoring, campaign-style crowd President Barack Obama is accustomed to. On Tuesday, the president spoke to the American Legion’s national convention, facing a crowd of veterans deeply concerned about widespread corruption at the Veterans Administration and the resultant deaths of some veterans awaiting health care. So when Obama began by lecturing the veterans about cynicism and explaining his most recent foreign policy choices — instead of addressing the VA crisis — the audience clearly wasn’t pleased. Fox News cameras captured a sea of blank or frowning faces looking silently back at the president as he paused

No White House representatives were present at the memorial mass held for James Foley on Sunday, although the president did send three to Michael Brown’s funeral, CNS News reports. Foley, 40, was beheaded in a video released by the radical Islamist group ISIS last week. He had been in captivity since November 2012, when he was captured in Syria while reporting for international news service GlobalPost. Pope Francis called Foley’s parents days after his murder was made public, and sent a letter that was read aloud at the mass, held at Our Lady of the Holy Rosary in Rochester, N.H., Foley’s hometown. “The

Last night CNN ran an unverified audio recording of the Michael Brown shooting reportedly captured during a video chat in Ferguson. It sounds like six shots were fired and then after a lapse of a few seconds four more shots were fired. Via Badger Pundit:(Snip for audio) CNN invited North County attorney Lopa Blumenthal to discuss the video. Blumenthal, a leftie, is representing the man who made the tape during an online chat session.

Authorities in Kiev claim to have captured 10 Russian paratroopers who crossed the border into eastern Ukraine, report my Washington Post colleagues, amid suggestions that Moscow is launching a "counteroffensive" in the region to help pro-Russian separatists. But Russian military officials said the presence of their troops there was a mistake. From Britain´s Guardian: "The soldiers really did participate in a patrol of a section of the Russian-Ukrainian border, crossed it by accident on an unmarked section, and as far as we understand showed no resistance to the armed forces of Ukraine when they were detained," a source in Russia´s defence ministry

Murmurs of dissatisfaction rose from the political Left and Right Tuesday night, after Israel agreed to a cease-fire. Meanwhile, Eshkol Regional Council chairman Haim Yellin indicated that he does not trust the cease-fire will last, saying residents of his constituency who evacuated should not return to their homes. "It doesn´t interest me what the government or Hamas say. I will only call on residents to return when I feel like there´s a real cease-fire," Yellin told Channel 10 news. [Snip] Just as half of the cabinet ministers were opposed to the cease-fire, many in the coalition expressed similar opinions.

President Barack Obama faced a tough crowd on Tuesday – American military veterans – and fell flat on his applause lines as he failed to win over the American Legion´s convention-goers. The 35-minute speech seemed to have reminded the audience of the stark divide between the White House´s policy choices and the feelings of the men and women often called on to carry them out. A Virginia legionnaire who served in the U.S. Marine Corps told MailOnline that ´a small group of Obama´s admirers – and there are some here – sat near the front and tried to generate applause

A ´supercavitating´ submarine creates a bubble of air that encompasses the whole vehicle by ejecting gas through the nose with enough force that it forms water vapor. This greatly reduces drag and allows it to travel at high speeds not possible by standard submarines. Photo: The Washington Post In the annals of vehicular locomotion, the submarine is the equivalent of the Walkman. It dazzled the masses when it hit, flexing nuclear-tipped missiles that completed the "nuclear triad" of deterrence. But other technologies soon surpassed it in terms of speed and agility. Now, years later, the submarine may be making a

A 9-1-1 call to the Brooks County Sheriff’s Office led to the discovery. Brooks County surrounds Falfurrias, Texas, which is approximately 80-90 miles from the Texas border with Mexico. The 9-1-1 call was made by an illegal alien who survived after regaining cell phone coverage in mile one of the nearly seventeen mile journey that the, now deceased, illegal immigrants were making to sneak around a Border Patrol checkpoint.
