Santa Claus came to Capitol Hill on Wednesday to deliver a message to Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio): pass President Obama´s middle-class tax cut bill or you´ll be on the naughty list. The roly-poly white-bearded man dressed in his seasonal red attire slid right past the “Official Business Only” sign in the alcove to Boehner’s Capitol Hill digs. With an entourage of paparazzi (five photographers) and a handler from the liberal group “Catholics United,” “Santa” asked a good-natured Speaker staffer for “two minutes” of Boehner’s time. The wide-eyed aide, hidden behind a desk
Personally, I think Boehner should adjourn this session of Congress and go on 3 week vacation to Tahiti. If Jugears can go to Hawaii, Boehner can go to Tahiti. Let´s take all the freeloading Dems off the cliff with us.
When this is over the liberal media will falsely accuse the Republicans of raising up the taxes on the wealthy, and will assert that Barack Obama pushed through a tax cut for the middle class. you can count on that.
Saturday is the one-year anniversary of the horrific murders at Sandy Hook Elementary, which means it is also the anniversary of a shameless media attempting to exploit those murders into restrictions against our Second Amendment civil rights. Everywhere today you can see the elite media licking their wounds over this humiliating defeat. What has to be especially bitter is a new poll that shows the National Rifle Association is twice as popular as anti-gun extremist Mike Bloomberg. According to a new NBC/Wall Street Journal poll, the NRA is viewed favorably by 39% or those polled, while only 31% view the
Spirit Airlines is at it again, riffing off a current event for one of its promotional ads, this time using the Obama selfie flap to good advantage. While in South Africa to pay tribute to Nelson Mandela at the official memorial service last Tuesday, President Barack Obama captured a moment with British Prime Minister David Cameron and Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt, seated near him in the stands at FNB Stadium. Taking selfies is a new trend, thanks to improved cameras on smartphones these days. Oxford Dictionary even named "selfie" the international word of the year 2013.
Despite recent pushes by the Obama administration for immigration reform, a new poll released Thursday by Gallup shows that a majority of Americans are far more concerned with other issues such as healthcare, the economy, and a general sense of dissatisfaction with the government. Twenty one percent of respondents said that the most important problem facing the United States was dissatisfaction with government, while 19 percent said the economy in general was the most important problem. Rounding out the top three responses was healthcare, which 17 percent labeled as the most important issue. Immigration was second to last with three
New Yorkers have long endured other people’s celebrations. On St. Patrick’s Day, they know to stay out of the pubs in Midtown if they do not want to be overwhelmed in a sea of semiconscious green. They avoid driving into Manhattan at all costs during the Puerto Rican Day Parade. Fashion’s Night Out is an occasion to stay in if you live in SoHo. And New Year’s Eve? Amateur hour — unless an out-of-town visitor drags a native kicking and screaming to Times Square. Now, a new contender has emerged for the event that many New Yorkers love to hate:
KATHLEEN KANE, Pennsylvania´s attorney general since January, is now considering a run for higher elected office. The Scranton native is not planning to enter the crowded 2014 Democratic primary election for governor, as many speculated. Instead, Kane is eyeing a 2016 run for the U.S. Senate against Pat Toomey, a Lehigh Valley Republican. Three sources close to Kane confirmed that she is very interested in a 2016 Senate run. "I think she sees it as a good opportunity," one of the sources said. "I think it´s something she´s seriously looking at." No decision has been made, according to a second

A cross atop Mount Soledad in California is an unconstitutional religious display on government land and must come down, a federal judge in San Diego ruled late Thursday. U.S. District Judge Larry Burns ordered the cross, which honors veterans, must be removed within 90 days -- a decision that could result in the case being sent back to the U.S. Supreme Court. Burns immediately stayed his order pending an expected appeal. The original lawsuit was filed in 2006 by the American Civil Liberties Union on behalf of the Jewish Veterans of the United States of American and several other Southern
New York — The anchor who might beat Bill O’Reilly gets her eyelash extensions applied one at a time, with tweezers and dabs of glue, about 90 minutes before showtime, right after a motorized gun sprays foundation over her face, neck, shoulders, collarbone and sternum, wiping out a galaxy of light freckles that spreads across her — Let me stop you right there. Photos of the day Uruguay legalizes marijuana, Kiev police pull back from protesters, aging U.S. prison population and more. Tuesday´s Photos of the day Would you write this way about a man? About O’Reilly himself? At least that’s what Megyn Kelly might ask at
In August 2013 I became very sick with what I thought was a cold. After a few days I lost vision in my left eye and I checked into the hospital. I soon found out that what I thought was a summer cold was actually Strep bacteria poisoning my blood stream. The bacteria blinded my left eye, ate a hole through my heart, caused five strokes on both sides of my brain and forced the removal of my prosthetic left knee. Dr. Lee was the surgeon assigned to perform open heart surgery. What was originally scheduled to last four hours ended
The health director who approved the release of President Obama’s birth certificate has died in a plane crash, Hawaiian officials said Thursday. Loretta Fuddy died after the Cessna Grand Caravan aircraft she was travelling on went down shortly after leaving Kalaupapa Airport at around 3:15 p.m. local time (10:15 a.m. ET) on Wednesday. The other eight people on board were rescued, Richard Schuman, president of Makani Kai Air, told NBC News early Thursday, adding that that there was no indication as to why the plane had crashed. Fuddy hit the headlines two years ago when she approved a waiver request allowing Obama to
Fox News host Megyn Kelly has made herself the center of a racial controversy by declaring that Jesus Christ and Santa Claus are white. On Wednesday night, Kelly was responding to an article by Slate writer Aisha Harris, who wrote an article entitled “ Santa Claus Should Not Be a White Man Anymore .” The popular news host told viewers of “The Kelly File,” her hit FNC program, “When I saw this headline, I kinda laughed and I said, ‘Oh, this is ridiculous. Yet another person claiming it´s racist to have a white Santa.’ And by the way, for all you kids
Views of the tea party are at all-time lows in a new poll, as primary challenges to establishment Republicans continue to heat up Washington. Just 30 percent of Americans view the tea party favorably in a new Gallup poll released Wednesday, the movement’s lowest point since Gallup began polling about it during its rise in 2010. Also in a first, a majority of Americans had an unfavorable view of the tea party, at 51 percent. Similar numbers of respondents described themselves as proponents or opponents of the tea party: Twenty-two percent identified themselves as tea party supporters, while 24 percent said they
Columnist Charles Krauthammer attacked new Obamacare rules unveiled by HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in a late Thursday conference call, saying the Obama administration is “approach[ing] banana republic lawlessness” by issuing the decrees. Krauthammer spoke with Fox News’ Bret Baier on a panel with Juan Williams and Judge Andrew Napolitano, as the three reacted to Sebelius’ new directives for insurance companies. “This is exactly a reaction to a deep understanding among Democrats that [Obamacare] is a train wreck,” he said. “And it’s a panic reaction. As the judge said, this is utterly lawless. This now approaches banana republic lawlessness.
WASHINGTON – It’s not exactly a ringing endorsement of the budget deal.“Embrace the suck,” House minority leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi told fellow Democrats Thursday morning, a source told Politico.“We need to get this off the table so we can go forward,” she added. It’s a way of telling her colleagues the budget deal negotiated with Republicans is the best they can get. Democrats are fuming that the bipartisan budget deal doesn’t extend unemployment benefits for more than a million Americans. One of Pelosi’s top lieutenants, Rep. Chris Van Hollen, the top Democrat on the House Budget Committee, said Thursday it
