Catholic bishops pledge
defiance on HHS mandate

If the Obama administration hoped that the election results and the narrow split in Barack Obama’s favor among Catholic voters would force the US Conference of Catholic Bishops into retreat on the HHS contraception mandate, the USCCB’s unity yesterday had to be a bit disappointing. The current president of the USCCB announced that the bishops would keep fighting the mandate, and while they were open to dialogue, the only option they will refuse to consider is “capitulation”: A top American bishop said Tuesday the Roman Catholic church will not comply with the Obama administration requirement

A little late to the party!
Leading from behind. The good Bishops have allowed their curates way too much leeway in teaching the Laws of the Church for far too long. Their acceptance of the likes of abortion loving Pelosi, Biden, Kerry, Kennedys into their churches, to receive communion is beyond the pale, and an insult to the intelligence of obedient members.

I expect they just may realize that they need to draw a clear line in the sand. No playing around hobnobbing with Pelosi, Kennedy´s or Obama. In addition to noncompliance with HHS, do not foolishly invite a Marxist to the Alfred Smith dinner and play like he is a buddy. Yes, Cardinal Dolan. I am talking to you, with all due respect.

Obama has a mandate from Black and Hispanic voters.

They did. Every week at mass, there was a pastoral letter urging that Catholics vote for the faith. trouble is most Catholics never go to church anymore and the media prevents the word from getting out to the masses. Unlike some black churches, the Catholic church does not permit politicking from the pulpit except in ambiguous language.

12 ... I didn´t see "faith" on the ballot. And I didn´t see nor hear words from Cardinal Dolan and his "Beanie Boys" to vote for anyone, but to vote "Your Catholic Concience", which led 54% of Catholics to say yes to Obama.
Black preachers told their people to vote for Obama. God bless them for their honesty. I wonder what God is going to do to Dolan and his boys for their duplicity.

As a Catholic I am horrified when I walk thru the parking lot of our Church and see oblamer bumper stickers on some of the cars. My tendency is to beat the driver about the head and shoulders but my husband usually constrains me.
How can a moral person let alone a so-called Catholic vote for the most ghoulish person ever to occupy the White House---voted 4 times to deny medical treatment for sweet babies that survived a butchering abortion. You can´t get more evil than that.
Yet 50/44 of Catholics voted for this satan.

With you there.....My husband has to break off several of my passionate conversations in our church parking lot. That the snare of the fowler captured 52 % of Catholics makes me weep. I watched some live feed from the Bishops´ conference, and all I can say is they better draw this line now. Cardinal Dolan disappointed me by giving Obama a place of legitimacy at the Al Smith dinner. This very subject should have disqualified his admittance.

Yes, I did hear some feeble mutterings before the election, but nothing strong enough to persuade anyone that we Catholics were dealing with the unholy one. This is a little late in the game and we are down by at least four touchdowns.This Administration would like nothing better than to jail and fine Catholic bishops who refuse to go along with his dictates. The only answer may be to close the Catholic hospitals and schools, which would give this the attention it deserves.

I am not Catholic , so I don ´t know how their chain of command works. Shouldn´t the Pope be the one to tell Obama he has crossed a red line ? I wish he had done it a month ago, with strong words for all . The party that boos God needs a public slap down. Where is the leadership ?

So, Catholics are burdened against their core beliefs by Obama and his healthcare take-over. Yet, muslims are exempt.
This regime doesn´t quite understand the resolve of the American people.
We lost because conservatives didn´t show at the polls. Our stupid mistake.
Their progrom will fail.

Sorry, bishops, it is a little late now to stand on principle. Where were you when it mattered?

I´m sick and ashamed.

Here’s What the CIA Director
Was Really Doing in Kiev
Daily Beast, by Eli Lake & Josh Rogin    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 4/16/2014 4:43:37 AM     Post Reply
The head of the CIA just made a secretive journey to Ukraine—to do what, he won’t say. But the answer could change the power equation in the hottest of geopolitical hotspots. The Obama administration is now considering a new policy to share more real-time intelligence with the interim government in Kiev after pressure from some in the U.S. military, Congress and U.S. allies in Ukraine. Over the weekend, CIA director John Brennan met with Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk and First Deputy Prime Minister Vitaliy Yarema to discuss the formation of new, more secure channels for sharing U.S. intelligence with the country

Liberals in rose-colored glasses
consider ObamaCare a ‘victory’

Ever since ObamaCare supposedly hit the arbitrary target of 7 million sign-ups by March 31, its supporters have been taking the most premature victory lap since conservative proponents of the Iraq War (like me) crowed about the results of the three elections inside Iraq in 2005 and how they demonstrated the country was on the verge of a historic peace. “It’s all over but the shouting: ObamaCare is working,” said Eugene Robinson in Tuesday’s Washington Post. “All the naysaying in the world can’t drown out mounting evidence that the Affordable Care Act, President Obama’s signature domestic achievement, is a real success.” Those

South Korea says hundreds missing

South Korean officials said Wednesday that nearly 300 people were still missing several hours after a passenger ferry sank off that country´s southern coast, leaving at least two dead and seven injured. A government official had said earlier Wednesday that around 100 people were unaccounted for, but the number was later revised upward due to a tallying error. The ferry was carrying 477 people, most of them high school students, and was bound for the island of Jeju when it sent a distress call at around 9 a.m. local time Wednesday as it began leaning to one side, according to

Could the Boston Marathon
bombings have been prevented?

BOSTON - It was a shocking slaying in a Boston suburb that sometimes goes years without one homicide, let alone three at once. The victims´ throats had been sliced in a home on a tree-lined street, marijuana and cash strewn over their bodies. The investigation languished for more than 18 months until just a few days after the Boston Marathon explosions, when the FBI identified the suspected bombers as Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, and his brother, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, ethnic Chechens who emigrated from Russia to the U.S. about a decade ago.

A Year After Background
Check Defeat, Modest Goals

WASHINGTON -- Democratic worries about this November´s elections, a lack of Senate votes and House opposition are forcing congressional gun-control supporters to significantly winnow their 2014 agenda, a year after lawmakers scuttled President Barack Obama´s effort to pass new curbs on firearms. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., recently said he needs additional votes before revisiting a proposed expansion of gun sale background checks that the Senate derailed last April. That has left advocates of tighter gun curbs hoping Reid will allow votes on more modest proposals, such as one by Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., to add convicted stalkers to

Nevada rancher: “I did not graze

The fairest explainer I’ve found on the Bundy saga is Becket Adams’s post at TheBlaze. If, like me (and Ace), you came to this story after it had already been hyper-polarized and weren’t sure whose facts to trust, try Adams’s Q&A. He plays it straight. In one sense this is complicated — land ownership, grazing rights dating back decades, a court battle, the feds tasing a Bundy family member, even a Harry Reid cameo — but after listening to this Glenn Beck interview with Bundy, it seems surprisingly simple. Bundy stopped paying the BLM in 1993 for grazing rights on

Antiquated law adds billions to fuel costs
New York Post, by William F. Shughart, III    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 4/15/2014 4:23:57 AM     Post Reply
An obscure 1920 law is costing Americans billions of dollars a year in higher fuel costs. The Jones Act requires that cargo shipped from one US port to another be carried on a US-registered vessel, built, owned and crewed by Americans. This protectionist law was designed to support a shipbuilding industry that no longer exists — but inertia and labor-union muscle keep it on the books. The law mainly makes the news in time of crisis. It delayed shipment of road salt to New Jersey during a shortage last winter — happily, without incident, as the weather moderated before the Garden State

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it
