House panel blocks most GOP attempts
to trim Sandy disaster-relief bill

The Hill [Washington, DC], by Pete Kasperowicz

Original Article

Posted By:nhchemist, 1/15/2013 10:00:58 AM

The Republican-led House Rules Committee late Monday approved a rule for a massive Hurricane Sandy relief package that shuts out most GOP proposals to pare back the size of the bill. The main bill provides $17 billion in relief, and an amendment made in order would add another $33.7 billion, for a total of $50.7 billion. Late last week, Republicans offered amendments that would trim the bill significantly, but few of those were made "in order" by the Rules Committee on Monday.

And we wonder why we have a spending problem?

It´s a good thing we still have control of the House, isn´t it? We don´t have to worry about the debt ceiling being raised because so many of the Republicans in the House would never vote for that because they understand that we need to cut spending and balance the budget.

Headline could be: GOP approves more Obama cash. Federal Reserve to purchase new Sand Dollar Bonds to support more spending.

Can anyone explain how House intends to pay for this $51 billion bill? Perhaps the Medicare money doubled counted for ObamaCare can now be tripled counted for Sandy.

James E. Ryan, a former state representative from Franklin who served as a state chairman for then-Sen. Joe Biden´s presidential primary campaign in 2008, was arrested without incident in Connecticut Tuesday as a fugitive from justice. The state of New Hampshire listed him as a fugitive and issued a warrant for his capture on Feb. 21 when his whereabouts were unknown, said Jeff Lyons, spokesman for the state Department of Corrections. Ryan, 56, entered state prison on Feb. 9, 2010, and was paroled June 24, 2013. Before he left the state and was listed as a fugitive, he was to

Gun control supporters turn to

The American gun control movement is going corporate. Still reeling from the stinging legislative defeats of 2013, proponents of tougher firearm regulations are increasingly turning their focus to private sector campaigns. Gun control groups have claimed victories in recent months, successfully pushing Starbucks to declare guns unwelcome in stores and persuading Facebook to crack down on unregulated firearm solicitations. With no end in sight to the congressional gridlock that has thwarted more stringent federal gun laws, groups say they will continue to apply pressure on major companies.

Branford, Conn. - A Branford police officer is off the job after he got into a fight online with someone about gun ownership. That officer is on leave after he told someone online he couldn’t wait to bang down his door and take his gun. A heated Facebook discussion with a Branford police officer that John Cinque says the cop took too far. “I’ll give my left nut to have the ability or have the opportunity to kick your door in and take your guns.” That was one of the comments Cinque says was over the line. But there is a whole thread of questionable remarks said to be posted by Officer Joe Peterson.

A video funded by Planned Parenthood of Northern New England discussing bondage and sadomasochism is coming under fire for its subject matter. "They´re offering information on what is really a violent act and making it acceptable to young people," said Bryan McCormack, executive director of Cornerstone Policy Research & Cornerstone Action, which promotes strong families and limited government. Planned Parenthood said it is using private donations - not government funds - to pay for a series of sexual education videos, including one titled "Getting Kinky - BDSM 101."

A senior at Northeast High School in Clarksville, Tenn. has been suspended for 10 days and faces a multitude of additional punishments including criminal charges because school officials found a knife belonging to his father inside his father’s car. (Snip) The car he drove to school was randomly chosen for a search. “I was, like, ‘Sure, no problem.’ I didn’t have anything to hide,” he explained. “And he said, ‘Do you have anything that we might need to know about?’” Duren-Sanner mentioned that his dad chews tobacco, so there would likely be snuff in the car.

NASHUA -- Thomas Pappas, chairman of the Nashua Police Commission, voluntarily resigned from his position on Wednesday, about three weeks after his involvement in state Rep. David Campbell´s duck killing incident was revealed. "He regrets greatly his role and the events of Dec. 23," Attorney Jim Rosenberg said of Pappas. "He is deeply saddened by the fact that he is resigning his post now." Campbell called Pappas after he had a couple of drinks and ultimately ran over several mallard ducks with his BMW, killing five of them on Dec. 23 outside of the Crowne Plaza.

Now, we can only sit idly by and hope that the governor puts ethics ahead of politics." Members of Nashua´s police commission are appointed by the governor.

CONCORD — Touting the privacy rights of New Hampshire citizens, House members Wednesday voted overwhelmingly — 250-97 — to kill a bill that would have allowed police to use license plate scanners, and then banned the issue for the rest of the session. With the House vote, New Hampshire continues to be the only state in the country to prohibit the use of license plate scanners. Collecting license plate information at toll booths and bridges is allowed. Recording license plate data is the same as Big Brother watching citizens in George Orwell´s novel "1984" opponents said — or at least

The Obama administration’s unquenchable ambition to replace Americans’ own choices with those made by bureaucrats in Washington has taken yet another stupid turn, it appears. Either that, or the federal school lunch policy is so confusing that city officials cannot figure out how to serve milk.

The words came out of my mouth before I could stop them. “I feel sorry for Obama,” I said. As my wife looked at me in disbelief, I quickly added a correction. “Well, almost.” Beset by failures at home and abroad, the president cuts a lonely and sad figure these days. His aura of grief reflects his profound loss. His worldview crashed headlong into reality, and reality won. Obamaism is dead, may it rest in peace. That’s sad for him, but hold the tears — his loss is mankind’s hope. If Obama wakes from his utopian visions and faces the

Has President Obama´s impunity come to an end? After five years of his flouting the letter and spirit of the law in an increasingly brazen fashion, congressional Republicans have been starting to ramp up their rhetoric about Obama´s lawlessness, their most concerted effort on the issue to date. Several new reports from top Republicans underscore the breadth of Obama´s executive overreach. Viewed comprehensively, it involves laws ranging from healthcare to immigration to privacy to technology to social issues to national security matters and more. Scandals like Benghazi, Operation Fast and Furious, the IRS targeting of conservative groups, NSA spying, CIA

White House executive pastry chef Bill Yosses is resigning after First Lady Michelle Obama fundamentally changed his job duties to focus on healthier food. Yosses is leaving the White House in June to work on a new project focusing on “food literacy” and The New York Times says Michelle is “partly to blame.” The openly gay chef was hired by Laura Bush in 2007 to make his trademark cookie plates and sugar sculptures. Mrs. Obama took over in 2009 and ordered Yosses to make healthier plates in smaller portions. (Snip) “I don’t want to demonize cream, butter, sugar and eggs,”

Health industry officials say ObamaCare-related premiums will double in some parts of the country, countering claims recently made by the administration. The expected rate hikes will be announced in the coming months amid an intense election year, when control of the Senate is up for grabs. The sticker shock would likely bolster the GOP’s prospects in November and hamper ObamaCare insurance enrollment efforts in 2015. The industry complaints come less than a week after Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius sought to downplay concerns about rising premiums in the healthcare sector. She told lawmakers rates would increase in 2015 but

Government officials now admit the data system and transponder quit communicating after the pilots said things were OK. That means they didn’t lie. The official Malaysian account of the last contacts made to and received by Flight MH370 is unraveling. As it does, the sinister interpretations of what happened in the cockpit of the Boeing 777 become less persuasive. We return to the all-important timeline. Originally, the Malaysians said that the last words from the cockpit—from the copilot, “All right, good night”—were spoken to air traffic controllers as the airplane left Malaysian air space at 1:30am. This week, that timing was significantly changed

“Get red, wild and blue, America!” There’s a new trailer for Sarah Palin’s Amazing America reality show on the Sportsman Channel and it is way more insane than you ever thought it could be. The show released a teaser video last month, but it just consisted of Palin’s silhouette over an full screen American flag and quotes about how awesome she was. This time, we get actual footage from the show, and it looks… incredibly goofy. Now, it’s not that I thought Amazing America was going to be some introspective TV version of NPR’s This American Life with the former Alaska governor
