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.

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?

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.)

Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370
search tests limits of satellites
Washington Post, by Joel Achenbach and Scott Higham    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 3/20/2014 11:10:38 PM     Post Reply
The disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 has exposed the technological limits of satellites, which can see a license plate from space — if not necessarily read it — but struggle to find a missing jetliner. These limits are shaped by physics, money and practicality. Military and commercial satellites are not closely observing and amassing data about the blank places on the map in lightly traveled seas — such as remote areas of the Indian Ocean thousands of miles from where Flight MH370 vanished from radar. There’s also a trade-off when scrutinizing the surface from space: You can go wide

When the National Zoo’s female sloth bear, Khali, delivered three cubs last December, she consumed one of them right after it was born. Carnivores do this in the wild when there is a sick offspring. A deceased cub in the den can draw predators, the zoo said. But a week later, when Khali consumed a second cub, keepers feared for the third. So for the first time in the zoo’s history, keepers took a sloth bear cub from its mother to raise by hand. Three months later, after weeks of incubators, midnight feedings and quiet sessions in a rocking chair,

Obama’s pathetic response

Early in the Ukraine crisis, when the Europeans were working on bringing Ukraine into the EU system and Vladimir Putin was countering with threats and bribes, one British analyst lamented that “we went to a knife fight with a baguette.” That was three months ago. Life overtakes parody. During the Ukrainian prime minister’s visit to Washington last week, his government urgently requested military assistance. The Pentagon refused. It offered instead military ration kits. Putin mobilizes thousands of troops, artillery and attack helicopters on Ukraine’s borders and Washington counters with baguettes, American-style. One thing we can say for sure in these

Russian mockery of President Obama has taken a bizarre turn. The newly elected Prime Minister of Crimea, Sergey Aksyonov, has tweeted (in Russian) a photoshopped image of Barack Obama in a Russian military uniform, implying that our president’s behavior can be explained by his purported status as a deep cover Russian agent. Oleg Atbashian of The People’s Cube, a former Soviet propagandist who fled to the West, has a fascinating post explaining what is going on here. Such a jab could have easily come from conservative jokesters in the U.S., as a way to vent their bitterness over Obama´s inept

President Obama declared today that the U.S. will not take military action in Ukraine. I think most of us had worked that out. “What we are going to do,” Obama declared “is mobilize all of our diplomatic resources to make sure that we’ve got a strong international coalition that sends a clear message.” The clear message will be this — please, please don’t invade more territory. In ruling out military action, Obama explained that “the Ukrainians don’t want [an actual war with Russia], nobody would want that.” But if Russia continues to devour their country, the Ukrainians are no less

A former high-ranking EPA staffer convicted of stealing nearly $900,000 by pretending to be a CIA spy had virtually no experience, got his job with help from a college buddy, and went on to play a key role in sweeping environmental regulations, according to a report Senate Republicans released Wednesday. Those regulations remain in place despite John C. Beale’s lack of environmental expertise, Republican investigators said, adding that they want the Environmental Protection Agency to review the work in which Beale was involved during his 24-year tenure. The report said Beale led an “itinerant life” as a police officer and

Federal officials have no qualms flying the friendly skies in style, regularly using executive jets and other planes in the government’s fleet of 1,700 aircraft for everyday travel. But they often don’t track how much such trips cost or the reasons why they skipped cheaper commercial flights in favor of firing up one of Uncle Sam’s aircraft. And lawmakers in Congress — usually charged with overseeing or reining in such expenditures — have their own addiction to luxury travel with a growing tendency to fly first class. Those findings by two separate watchdogs in Congress are the latest examples of a

IT’S EASY to conclude that Vladi­mir Putin’s passionate defense of Russia’s takeover of Crimea “just didn’t jibe with reality,” as Secretary of State John F. Kerry put it. In a speech on Tuesday, the Russian ruler repeated mendacious charges that the Ukrainian government had been hijacked by “nationalists, neo-Nazis, Russophobes and anti-Semites”; voiced his paranoid conspiracy theory about supposed Western sponsorship of popular revolutions, including the Arab Spring; and brazenly compared Russia’s abrupt annexation of Ukraine with the reunification of Germany. It’s necessary, however, to take some of what Mr.?Putin said seriously, because of the implicit threat it poses to

Which makes David Plouffe’s comments over the weekend all the more telling for Democrats as they look nervously toward the November midterm elections. When Republican David Jolly defeated Democrat Alex Sink in Florida’s 13th Congressional District a week ago, Democratic leaders explained away the outcome by arguing that the district tilted heavily in favor of the GOP in midterm and especially special elections.

Brushing aside President Obama’s threat of more sanctions, Russian President Vladimir Putin annexed the Crimean region of Ukraine on Tuesday with the stroke of a pen, while NATO members criticized Washington for getting caught off guard by Russia’s military buildup. As the Russian national anthem played and cheering lawmakers wept, Mr. Putin and Crimean leaders signed a treaty in Moscow to make Crimea part of the Russian Federation, only two days after the region held a disputed referendum enforced by Russian troops. “In the hearts and minds of people, Crimea has always been and remains an inseparable part of Russia,”

President Obama on Monday slapped Russia with the kinds of economic sanctions not seen since the Cold War, but the administration’s supposed hard line was met with mockery and a “collective shrug” in Moscow, Kiev and Washington. One day after Crimeans voted overwhelmingly to secede from Ukraine and join Russia, the White House and its partners in the European Union responded by targeting high-ranking officials in Moscow along with pro-Russian figures responsible for the unrest in Ukraine. The move adds even more tension to a dramatic standoff between Russia and the West, but early signs suggest the latest round of

Is Barack Obama simply too busy to be Chief Executive of the United States? Apparently. One of the primary functions of the president is to keep the nation safe, to preserve it from its enemies. To do that effectively, one would actually have to maintain something of a consistent level of attention to the moving pieces that directly influence how future events will unfold. None other than the truly sycophantic thinks for a second that President Obama cares a whit for anything that does not involve fundamentally altering the social composition of this country. Or golf.

President Barack Obama said Wednesday that he thinks Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick “would make a great president or vice president.” Obama and Patrick, both Democrats, are friends and close political allies. The two men have campaigned for each other, with Patrick acting as a surrogate for Obama nationally during the 2012 presidential race. Patrick has said clearly that he intends to return to the private sector when his second term as governor is up at the end of the year and will not run for president in 2016. But he has not ruled out a run for office in the

Black students are more likely to be suspended from U.S. public schools — even as tiny preschoolers. The racial disparities in American education, from access to high-level classes and experienced teachers to discipline, were highlighted in a report released Friday by the Education Department´s civil rights arm. The suspensions — and disparities — begin at the earliest grades. Black children represent about 18 percent of children in preschool programs in schools, but they make up almost half of the preschoolers who are suspended more than once, the report said. Six percent of the nation´s districts with preschools reported suspending at
