Obama’s new contraception
rules try to fool Catholics

Washington Post, by Michael Gerson

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 2/4/2013 10:48:55 PM

The Obama administration’s latest revision of its contraceptive policy was welcomed by some religious people as a breakthrough, even a “miracle.” Upon reflection, it seems less like the parting of the Red Sea than a parlor trick. At issue is whether Obamacare’s broad mandate of insurance coverage for contraceptives, sterilization and abortifacients should apply to institutions with moral objections. For more than a year, the administration has struggled to clarify a set of regulations, while provoking 44 legal challenges.

Depends if you are a ´Real´ Catholic or one like Biden, Pelosi, or Kerry ~ they are already fooled and fools to believe they are not useful idiots that will be thrown under the bus before Obama is through with us.

Is anyone stupid enough to believe that this is anything other than an unconstitutional threat to religious freedom? This administration is an embarrassment to everyone with a brain!

Everything Obama has ever done as "president" was meant to fool people. Everything Obama will ever do as "president" will be meant to fool people. Given that the Left is based upon a complete lie, there is no other way it can be.

The Obama crew must have feared losing in court to move the goalposts like they did by suddenly revising that administration policy?

Call me a conspiracist but given the history of this odious President and his evil cabal, this latest "contraception rule" looks more like another backdoor attempt to squash Christianity in America.

This isn´t about getting the money from religious organizations, nor is it about making them pay for contraception. It is about chipping away more mortar from the foundation stone of Christianity, and for that matter, all religion in America except Islam, who seem to have free rein in changing our culture and our laws.

When we are in negotiations for what part of our rights we will be allowed to keep/observe, we have lost the argument. Vote these bums out or better yet impeach ´em.

so how does this situation compare to the religious conscientious objectors during the Vietnam draft? seems to me like if you´re going to treat Catholics this way, any kind of "religious" objection to any government policy goes out the door. can´t have it both ways. or maybe Obama can, unfortunately.

I went to a " meet and greet" with Ken Cuccinelli last night. He is the Virginia AG who filed the first ( I believe ) lawsuit against 0bamacare within minutes of it being signed into law. He is now running for governor against Terry McAuliffe - the renter of the Lincoln Bedroom for the Clinton´s and man behind the Global Crossing disaster.

If I understood him correctly, Cuccinelli says that the solution to this attack on religions is for states to NOT set up healthcare exchanges. No exchange means that businesses, schools, churches, etc can not be fined. I hope he´s right on that. Virginia is not setting up an exchange.

I have an "accomodation" for Obama: Since we are talking abortifacents and how Catholics have to make sure they are offered, let´s do a retroactive abortive action and apply it to Pelosi, Reid, Kerry, etc. Let´s go ahead and declare the democrat party an endangered species and work in that direction.

In regards to the Supremes, after the revolution and the vile leaders are put to sleep, the Patriot Council will review the recent decisions of the Supreme Court: any judge who has been shown to judge with a tack towards/for liberal agenda time and time again will be judged/declared biased, incapable of impartiality, summarily pushed out the window of their Supreme Court office. Hello Kagin and Sotomayor? Buh bye! Yes the traitor on healthcare gets the same treatment.

No doubt most Catholics who voted for Obama are cool with abortion, etc., or else are completely oblivious. This last group is too involved with watching Obama Network News, Honey Boo Boo, Girls, or Monday Night Football for this to register with them. And if you tried to warn them, they would insist you are dead wrong.

The Catholic church, the only large group now with its panties in a twist, actually hopped into bed with the left back in the 1960´s. Now they are complaining about the fleas and bed bugs that are biting them! It´s the Vatican that is now driving this boat and a few (very few) older, conservative bishops. That´s it. The laity slowly turned left and are okay with it all. My local parish priest practically demanded that we voted for Obama --- or we must look at why we weren´t doing that and it might be because we are racists!

Why is it so important to Obama that Catholics have to be made to kill the innocent? There are plenty of non Catholic hospitals who comply to this deed. Why the Catholics and then Christian community? Does he need this for a reason? Isn´t their enough blood shed in the United States America already?

The only people fooled are those who WANT to be fooled.

They need to be lied to in order to justify their vote for this criminal in the oval office.

I think the dividing line among the laity is based upon regular Mass attendance. Those that are active in the Faith and receive the Sacraments regularly see through the Obama deception. Its the "cultural Catholics" who no longer practice their Faith, but still retain a romantic notion about identifying themselves as Catholic, that are the useful idiots that skew towards liberal shibboleths. (Caveat: Too many of the faithful laity are bound to that 1960´s union with the left that #11 described.)

"Progressivism" requires that the great monotheistic religions, which built western civilization, be destroyed. They think they are using Islam for this purpose and once Christianity and Judaism are gone they will be able to dispatch the muzzies. Stupid suicidal liberals.

I´ve been struggling since the election to find any reason to continue to believe in our political process. The GOP has made it abundantly clear that they consider their base to be an obstacle, and defending our constitutional rights too much to ask. There is nothing left to render under Caesar.

I will render all unto God. He is my rock and my fortress. Let me know when the shooting starts. Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition. (If you stocked up back in "09.)

#19, my daughter still writes JMJ on her homework. Our kids luckily go to a Catholic school.
I don´t understand why more priests and highers up don´t call out piglosi, kerry (I was in Vietnman) and sicbilis. I can´t judge (errr, but it is hard not to) but surely our spiritual leaders can call them to account.
The kenyan idiot is trying to stand out Christianity and Judism.
There is NO reasonable basis to send fighter jets to the muslim brotherhood (fka Egypt) other than to arm them to attack Israel.
These are scary times.

Social Security stops trying

Washington Post, by Marc Fisher    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/14/2014 10:13:04 PM     Post Reply
The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

Despite promises to the contrary, it appears that State Senator Wendy Davis (D-Fort Worth) voted on bills that affect her clients and favorably impact the bottom line of her law firm. “I have never done anything in a way that represents a conflict in my voting and something that would benefit me personally,” she said in an interview, but state records seem to tell a different story. The Dallas Morning News´ Senior Political Writer Wayne Slater (DMN) reported that Davis supported legislation governing a toll road project. That would be all well and good except for the fact that the

Democrats Lose Two More Special
Elections They Didn’t Expect To

Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Nevada ranch standoff could leave
dirt on Harry Reid’s reputation

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

On the defensive about their prospects in the midterm elections this fall, congressional Democrats have spent all of April savaging the Republican budget proposal, decrying the Koch brothers and championing a series of bills meant to ingratiate themselves to struggling middle-class voters. In promoting legislation that would extend unemployment benefits, increase the minimum wage and promote equal pay for women, the Democrats have declared themselves the party that will ensure a “fair shot” for all. Republicans, they insist, are the party of special interests. It has been a classic Washington messaging campaign for these partisan

On a trip to Moscow early in her tenure as secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton played the role of international saleswoman, pressing Russian government officials to sign a multibillion-dollar deal to buy dozens of aircraft from Boeing. A month later, Clinton was in China, where she jubilantly announced that the aerospace giant would be writing a generous check to help resuscitate floundering U.S. efforts to host a pavilion at the upcoming World’s Fair. Boeing, she said, “has just agreed to double its contribution to $2 million.” Clinton did not point out that, to secure the donation, the State Department

Overland Park city spokesman Sean Reilly says two people died at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City campus and one was killed at Village Shalom, which is a retirement community that is several blocks away from the center.

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

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

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

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes.
