A-Rod shows at Yankee Stadium,
not worried about drug probe

New York Post, by Dan Martin

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 4/1/2013 2:42:40 PM

Alex Rodriguez said Monday he’s not worried about a potential suspension regarding his ties to performance enhancing drugs and still intends to play for the Yankees this season.“No, I’m not,” Rodriguez said when asked if he was concerned about being targeted by MLB or a possible suspension. “But I’m not gonna further discuss this. At some point, I feel that everything will be good.”That point has not arrived. The third baseman acknowledged meeting with the league about their investigation into Biogenesis, the anti-aging clinic whose records contained Rodriguez’s name. He declined to go into details, though.

And I´m not worried about anything. No matter how guilty I am.

The most bigoted anti-Catholic
column you´ll read this year
The Week, by Edward Morrissey    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 1/16/2014 1:25:10 PM     Post Reply
Let´s try a thought experiment to test the bounds of fair commentary and editorial responsibility. A film reviewer detests a film that pushes values he sees as un-American in some fashion or other, and notes that the director is Jewish. The reviewer deduces from that one fact that the director´s religion is what produced the the film´s disagreeable values, and then deduces that Jewish control of the media is what allowed the movie to reach theaters in the first place. The reviewer then implies to his readers that Jews should not be allowed in positions of power in the entertainment

House passes measure requiring

The House voted Thursday to require weekly updates from the Obama administration about the implementation and operation of ObamaCare and its website, HealthCare.gov. Members passed the Exchange Information Disclosure Act in a 259-154 vote. And while many Democrats criticized the bill as another GOP attack on ObamaCare, it won the support of 33 Democrats in the final vote. It´s the second House vote in as many weeks showing some level of Democratic support for more oversight of the healthcare law. Last week, 67 Democrats voted for another GOP bill that would require officials to tell people if their personal information

Gov. Chris Christie beefed up his response to the George Washington Bridge scandal on Thursday, naming a new legal team to conduct an internal review of what led to a controversy that’s become a major headache for the New Jersey Republican. The legal team will also be tasked with helping Christie’s administration cooperate with the U.S. attorney’s office and “other appropriate inquiries and requests for information,” said a statement from the governor’s office. Randy Mastro, a former assistant U.S. attorney, will lead the team, the statement said. Mastro served as chief of staff and as a deputy mayor to former New

This Black Man Appreciates Omaha
Police Exposing Black Toddler Cursing Video

Liberal´s reaction to Omaha, Nebraska police exposing the ignorant thug mindset behind the shocking video of a black toddler cursing is yet another example of liberals getting it all wrong. It´s all about making themselves feel good -- tolerant, superior, and compassionate. Rather than severely condemning the child´s parents for abusing the toddler, liberals are ripping into the police, calling them racists. The Omaha Police Officers´ Association is catching heck from the city´s police chief, the ACLU, and at least one community leader. These liberals accuse the police of antagonizing the city´s large black community. Insistent on viewing everything along

Senate report on Benghazi: CIA beefed

CAIRO — A Senate intelligence committee report released Wednesday offers the most damning and detailed public account to date of how the State Department, intelligence agencies, the military and even Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens ignored deteriorating security at the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi ahead of the Sept. 11-12, 2012, attacks that left four Americans dead, including the ambassador. Calling the deaths “preventable,” the bipartisan report said that in the three months leading up to the attacks U.S. intelligence agencies offered hundreds of briefings and documents on the increasingly dangerous security situation in Libya, and that the CIA even

   

 

  


 
German Beer´s Existential Crisis
The New Yorker, by Michael Filtz    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 1/16/2014 8:10:48 AM     Post Reply
In 1886, an American consul named George C. Tanner, who was stationed in Chemnitz, Germany, wrote, “Beer is the national beverage, and is used as such, if not to a greater extent than water, then assuredly equally so.” To illustrate his point, he wrote that, during his stay in Germany, he had yet to see anyone drink a single glass of water. Tanner’s report—which one suspects wasn’t conducted scientifically, in the absolute sense—noted that the sheer volume of Germany’s annual beer production could be compared to some of America’s largest rivers, and painted a picture of a highly refined beer

´Francois Hollande looks totally ridiculous,´
French newspaper claims Nicolas Sarkozy said

François Hollande has made the French presidency look "ridiculous" with his scooter-driven nocturnal trips to visit his mistress, Nicolas Sarkozy was reported as saying on Wednesday. As the scandal over Mr Hollande´s affair with Julie Gayet, a 41-year old actress, continued to reverberate around France, Le Canard Enchaîné, the investigative weekly, said that Mr Sarkozy – his Right-wing predecessor – has been gloating over his rival´s woes. "He´s got himself into a right old pickle," he was reported as saying to "visitors". "Perhaps this will put an end to all his moralising," said Mr Sarkozy, whose Socialist successor has often accused of shamelessly

Jimmy Kimmel Savages ObamaCare and

As NewsBusters has been reporting for months, late night comics have been tearing the atrocious rollout of ObamaCare apart. Conceivably the best job done to date was by ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel who during his opening monologue Tuesday evening absolutely savaged the law whilst ridiculing the uninformed young people in this country that have ignorantly supported something that clearly harms them (video follows with transcript and commentary): JIMMY KIMMEL, HOST: The rollout of the Affordable Care Act continues to be terrible. First, there was technical problems with the Healthcare.gov website.

Will IRS bully people to
sign up for Obamacare?
Washington Examiner, by Byron York    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 1/14/2014 8:01:44 AM     Post Reply
The individual mandate, Obamacare´s requirement that all Americans have health insurance that includes "minimum essential coverage," has been in effect for two weeks now. No one has noticed because nothing has happened. But it will. The mandate is the heart of Obamacare; without it, supporters believe, the system won´t work. So the Obama administration hopes millions of Americans will voluntarily comply with the mandate and purchase government-approved coverage. If they don´t do it voluntarily, they´ll be punished. Starting next year, the government will coll

LOS ANGELES — About 20 million DirecTV customers nationwide lost The Weather Channel because of a dispute over fees between the channel and the satellite service. The two companies pointed fingers at each other late Monday as a midnight EST deadline for renegotiation of carriage fees paid by DirecTV to The Weather Channel passed without an agreement. In a statement, David Kenny, CEO of the channel´s parent company, The Weather Co., said it offered DirecTV the best rate for its programming. Kenny accused the satellite provider of putting profits ahead of public safety. "We are not looking for a large fee increase," Kenny

Three Reminders that Obamacare
Still Isn´t Hunky-Dory
New Republic, by Jonathan Cohn    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 1/14/2014 7:12:30 AM     Post Reply
Obamacare has been getting better press lately, and rightly so. More people keep enrolling and, better still, more people are taking advantage of the law´s benefits. But not everything is hunky-dory, as three new stories make very clear. Story one is about people who signed up for insurance and are trying to use it. Some are showing up at drugstores, physician offices, and hospitals—only to discover that insurers don’t have records of their enrollments. A New York Times story, by Robert Pear and Abby Goodnough, reports on a few such stories, including at least two in which people have delayed getting

Spanish-language Obamacare
website is written in ´Spanglish´

It launched two months late, but the rollout of the Spanish version of the federal Obamacare portal has been just as disastrous as its English counterpart’s October debut, according to an Associated Press report. This time, the problem is lousy translations and glitches that send users back to the English version of HealthCare.gov. The AP says the translations on so poor that many users feel they were computer-generated. The name of the site, CuidadoDeSalud.gov, can be litterally read as “for the caution of health.”

WITH a White House cheating scan­dal set to explode, President BARACK OBAMA and his wife MICHELLE are hiding a divorce shocker from America! Only weeks after Obama publicly humiliated the first lady by snapping a “selfie” with a dishy blonde for­eign leader, the first couple’s shaky 21-year marriage has collapsed following a disastrous holiday trip, sources say. The two locked horns in a series of ugly fights during their recent Hawaiian getaway, but sources say the death blow came when Michelle learned that the Secret Service has covered up Obama’s cheating – twice.

The problems with a politicized IRS may be far more serious than we have yet suspected. Sarah Palin´s brother Chuck Heath, Jr. posted the following on his Facebook account January 11th: My father, who worked multiple jobs and faithfully and honestly paid his taxes for fifty years, had never heard a word from the IRS. In 2008, his daughter was tapped to run for vice president of the United States. Since that time, he has been, in his words "horribly harassed" six times by the agency. They´ve tried to dig up something on him but he´s always operated above board. Government and

Secretary of State John Kerry covered a broad range of topics with his counterpart Pietro Parolin at the Vatican in Rome on Monday. Besides Syria, the Middle East peace process, Sudan, and Cuba, the subject of poverty came up during their discussions. In remarks following the meeting, Kerry linked poverty not only to terrorism, but to the "disenfranchisement of millions" [emphasis added]: We talked about the common interest of Pope Francis and President Obama in addressing poverty and extreme poverty on a global basis.

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee wants to ban the term "RINO" -- "Republican in Name Only" -- in the Republican Party. The former governor complained in a letter to supporters that during a recent social media outreach, he was disturbed that too many Republicans were attacking each other and calling them names. "Many of you used a term that I’d like to see outlawed from the vernacular of the party: RINO," he said, calling it a "pejorative term" that questioned one´s purity. Huckabee pointed out that he got a tweet from someone who complained that he was a RINO, which upset him. "With all

AUSTIN, Texas — In October, Susan, a woman who lives in Willacy County in Texas’ southernmost tip, found out she was pregnant. She is married and has three children, and for a few weeks last fall, she couldn’t afford her birth control. Her condition, to her, was not entirely good news. “I weighed out the pros and cons,” she said. “But I didn´t want to have another baby.” Susan asked her gynecologist about getting an abortion, but the doctor said she didn’t perform the procedure. For women in her area, there was only one place to go: Reproductive Services of Harlingen, where

Movie producer Harvey Weinstein announced for the first time on Howard Stern’s radio show that he is making a full feature drama to try to destroy the National Rifle Association. Mr. Stern asked Mr. Weinstein on Wednesday whether he owned a gun. The Hollywood heavyweight replied that he did not and never would. “I don’t think we need guns in this country. And I hate it,” the producer said. “I think the NRA is a disaster area.” Mr. Weinstein then revealed his secret project about the gun rights group. “I shouldn’t say this, but I’ll tell it to you, Howard,”

Last month, the Paul Ryan-Patty Murray discretionary spending bill was unveiled. Sort of unveiled, anyway: it didn’t actually exist, but was summarized in a series of bullet points. Now the bill has taken tangible form. Here it is, all 2,860 pages, including explanatory statements: The House is expected to vote on the omnibus spending bill tomorrow, less than 48 hours after copies became available. No one will have read the law; this is government by press release. The bill is advertised at $1.1 trillion, but in the brief time available, Republican Senate staffers have found that it actually spends $18

Conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt slammed Rep.

Shocking images depicting U.S. soldiers burning the bodies of what appear to be Iraqi insurgents, have emerged today. The explosive photographs, reportedly taken in Fallujah in 2004, have already sparked a Marine Corps investigation, but many of the 41 gag-inducing shots are just too grisly to publish. Two pictures show a Marine pouring what looks like gasoline on the remains of enemy soldiers and another two images appear to show the remains go up in flames. Two more capture the horrifically charred bodies. The sick snaps were exclusively obtained by TMZ, who turned them over to the Pentagon last week, triggering the

A retired cop who police say went ballistic and fatally shot a man for texting in a Florida movie theater was ordered held without bail Tuesday. Curtis Reeves was charged with second-degree murder for allegedly gunning down Chad Oulson, who was texting his 3-year-old daughter’s day-care center while in the suburban theater outside Tampa Monday. “He must have just snapped,” said a neighbor of Reeves. The 71-year-old former Tampa police captain faces life in prison for allegedly shooting Oulson with a .380-caliber semiautomatic weapon. Oulson’s wife, Nicole, tried to shield him, and the bullet hit her in the hand before striking

The National Security Agency has implanted software in nearly 100,000 computers around the world--but not in the United States--that allows the U.S. to conduct surveillance on those machines, The New York Times reported Tuesday. The Times cited NSA documents, computer experts and U.S. officials in its report about the use of secret technology using radio waves to gain access to computers that other countries have tried to protect from spying or cyberattacks. The agency has planted most of the software through getting access to computer networks, but has also used a secret technology that allows it entry even to computers
