Iowa Sen. Kent Sorenson resigns
after report finds he received
money from Bachmann campaign

Des Moines Register, by Jason Noble & Jennifer Jacobs

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 10/3/2013 5:22:00 AM

Kent Sorenson, the Iowa state senator embattled over accusations that he inappropriately received pay from at least one presidential campaign in the lead up to the 2012 Iowa caucuses, has resigned from office, according to a Senate leader. The Milo Republican stepped down just hours after an independent investigator delivered a damning report to the Senate Ethics Committee, which has been investigating his conduct for several months. The report found “probable cause” that Sorenson broke ethics rules by accepting payments from a political action committee associated with U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann, and that his denials of taking such payment may represent a

Thanks for posting. I´ve always suspected that many of those pretty, conservative women that associate with the Tea Party are probably criminals.

Meanwhile, the Obama Ruling Junta, greases the palms of his supporters with cash giveaways from the so called stimulus bill (paid for by those who actually pay taxes, and carves out exemptions from ObamaCare for other favored groups. Just too cite two examples.......

But the press will latch onto a single republican and brand the entire GOP as criminals.

#1, if this is true, they are in a much lower league than all the ugly male Democrats that have cheated their way into office and continue to live like the royalty they wish they were. Example - Harry Reid, Barack Obama.

Heating up: Climate change advocates
try to silence Krauthammer
Fox News, by Howard Kurtz    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 2/24/2014 10:12:02 AM     Post Reply
Charles Krauthammer says it right up front in his Washington Post column: “I’m not a global warming believer. I’m not a global warming denier.” He does, however, challenge the notion that the science on climate change is settled and says those who insist otherwise are engaged in “a crude attempt to silence critics and delegitimize debate.” How ironic, then, that some environmental activists launched a petition urging the Post not to publish Krauthammer’s column on Friday. Their response to opinions they disagree with is to suppress the speech. Brad Johnson (@ClimateBrad), the editor of HillHeat.com and a former

Hospital cited by Obama as health-reform

Are people actually signing up for Obamacare? If so, they should check with their hospital first. The top-ranked hospital cited by President Barack Obama as a national model for health care reform accepts only one kind of insurance plan under the new Obamacare exchanges. The Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, a top 4-ranked U.S. hospital that performs 250 surgeries per day, only accepts Blue Cross Blue Shield silver plans under the new Obamacare exchanges. No other Obamacare exchange plans are accepted.

   

 

  


 
Whole Foods: America’s

Americans get riled up about creationists and climate change deniers, but lap up the quasi-religious snake oil at Whole Foods. It’s all pseudoscience—so why are some kinds of pseudoscience more equal than others? If you want to write about spiritually-motivated pseudoscience in America, you head to the Creation Museum in Kentucky. It’s like a Law of Journalism. The museum has inspired hundreds of book chapters and articles (some of them, admittedly, mine) since it opened up in 2007. The place is like media magnet. And our nation’s liberal, coastal journalists are so many piles of iron fillings. But you don’t have to

The White House’s ‘Knuckleheads’

Michelle Obama had a laugh or two last week on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” while talking about ObamaCare and the silly — and potentially dangerous — things young folks do. She called them “knuckleheads.” But it’s starting to look like the joke may be on her and her husband. “Thanks to the Affordable Care Act, young people can stay on their parents’ insurance until they are 26,” Obama said. “But once they hit 26 — they’re on their own. And a lot of young people think they’re invincible. But the truth is, young people are knuckleheads, you know? They’re

SOCHI, Russia — Flushed with pride after a spectacular showing at the costliest Olympics ever, Russia celebrated 17 days of sport-driven global unity on Sunday night with a farewell show that hands off the Winter Games to their next host, Pyeongchang in South Korea. Fireworks and a countdown kicked off the closing ceremony in the Fisht Olympic Stadium, packed with spectators who chanted “Ro-ssi-ya! Ro-ssi-ya!” — “Russia! Russia!” —and were in a party mood after the high-security games passed off safely without feared terror attacks. Giant screens flashed highlights from the 17-day games. With a 3-0 victory over Sweden in the men’s

A little bit of rain couldn´t stop Dale Earnhardt Jr. at the 2014 Daytona 500. The first race of the 2014 Sprint Cup season was delayed for more than six hours when Mother Nature reared her ugly head on Daytona International Speedway, but Junior was eventually able to hold off Denny Hamlin to earn the second Daytona 500 victory of his career.

BEAUMONT, Texas—On the night before early voting began in Texas, a few hundred conservatives gather in a Dallas Hilton ballroom to pray for victory. They start arriving at 5:30 p.m., some of them buying hotel-priced beverages from a pop-up bar, some of them moving immediately to the tables where they can sign up to help Katrina Pierson get elected to Congress. I pick up a door-hanger, one of thousands that will be deployed over the next week. It’s like a Bayeux Tapestry of Tea Party history.

Congratulations! You´ve won the gold medal!

The train wreck continues in the conservative world populated by groups such as Heritage Action and the Senate Conservatives Fund. One of their top candidates, Milton Wolf, who is seeking to bump off popular conservative incumbent Sen. Pat Roberts in Kansas, is trailing by a huge margin, 49 to 23 in the most recent poll. This is after he and the right-wing chorus made a huge to-do about Roberts not living in the state. (In fact, he travels home frequently and is a familiar face.) In Kentucky, Matt Bevin trails Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell by 20 to 30 points according

For the third time in four years, the Republican Party finds itself politically positioned to win control of the Senate. More than eight months before President Obama’s second midterm election, his job approval ratings are stuck in the low 40s as voters continue to frown on his signature domestic initiative, the Affordable Care Act. And the majority of contests likely to determine the outcome of the 2014 campaign for Senate control are being fought in red states. But as in 2010 and 2012, when the GOP nominated flawed candidates who torpedoed their party’s chance to demote Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.),

Wisconsin’s Legacy for Unions

Three years ago, a labor leader named Marty Beil was one of the loudest opponents of Gov. Scott Walker’s “budget repair bill,” a proposal that brought tens of thousands of protesters out to the Wisconsin State Capitol in Madison in frigid February weather. A gruff-voiced grizzly of a man, Mr. Beil warned that the bill was rigged with booby traps that would cripple the state’s public-sector unions. He gets no satisfaction from being right. Since the law was passed, membership in his union, which represents state employees, has fallen 60 percent; its annual budget has plunged to $2 million from $6

On any day, between 5 million and 6 million containers are on the high seas, carrying everything from potato chips to refrigerators. But not all of them make it to their destination, as the crew of the Svendborg Maersk have just found out. Their Danish-flagged ship was in the Bay of Biscay last week as hurricane-force winds battered the Atlantic coast of Europe. Amid waves of 30 feet and winds of 60 knots, the Svendborg began losing containers off northern France. After the ship arrived in the Spanish port of Malaga this week, Maersk discovered that about 520 containers were

Julie Boonstra, a cancer patient who was kicked of off her health plan due to Obamacare, lashed out at Rep. Gary Peters (D., Mich.) on Saturday after lawyers for his campaign demanded that Michigan broadcasters cease airing ads featuring her story. Boonstra, a Michigan resident, was diagnosed with leukemia five years ago. She was recently kicked off of her healthcare plan due to regulations passed as part of President Barack Obama’s Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, which Peters voted in favor of. After relating her story publicly in an ad produced by the advocacy group Americans for Prosperity (AFP), Peters dispatched

On Sunday evening, award-winning actor and prominent left-wing activist Alec Baldwin announced that he was leaving "public life"--and blamed "Roger Ailes. And Fox. And Breitbart." In an extended rant to Joe Hogan, posted on vulture.com and published in New York magazine, Baldwin recounted his run-ins with paparazzi, his gay slur controversies, and his ill-fated talk show on MSNBC--but he reserved special resentment for Breitbart. "There is a core of outlets that are pushing these stories out. Breitbart clutters the blogosphere with ´Alec Baldwin, he’s the Devil, he’s Fidel Baldwin,´" Baldwin claimed.

It’s hard to understand exactly why Susan Rice is still refusing to admit fault about her lies about the Benghazi attack. When asked this morning on Meet the Press by David Gregory whether she had any regrets about appearing on four network news shows the Sunday after the 9/11/12 attacks that took the lives of four Americans and telling the nation that what happened was the result of a demonstration against a video, Rice said she had none: David, no.

The Obama administration is launching an “attack” on the Medicare Advantage and Medicare Part D programs as part of Obamacare that will result in higher costs and fewer health care options for seniors, according to a U.S. House subcommittee. The administration is quietly introducing “policies that would undermine the integrity and success of the Medicare Part D program” according to the subcommittee. President Bush signed Medicare Part D into law in 2003 to subsidize prescription drug costs for Medicare beneficiaries. The Daily Caller has learned that the House Energy and Commerce Committee’s Subcommittee on Health will hold a hearing Feb.

There is now little doubt that the Girl Scout cookie boycott is having an effect on cookie sales this year. Girl Scout spokesman Kelly Parisi went on The O’Reilly Factor this week to try and defuse the mounting controversy, and Girl Scout executives have sent threatening letters to their critics. Girl Scout CEO Anna Marie Chavez took to YouTube on Thursday to deny all charges leveled by the boycotters and to deny at least one charge they haven’t even made. “Recently, various individuals and organizations announced their intention to boycott GS cookies this year, based on mistaken beliefs about our

There have been times when the CNN host Piers Morgan didn’t seem to like America very much — and American audiences have been more than willing to return the favor. Three years after taking over for Larry King, Mr. Morgan has seen the ratings for “Piers Morgan Live” hit some new lows, drawing a fraction of viewers compared with competitors at Fox News and MSNBC. (Snip) It’s been an unhappy collision between a British television personality who refuses to assimilate — the only football he cares about is round and his lectures on guns were rife with contempt — and a CNN audience that

The Obama administration warned Russian President Vladimir Putin on Sunday not to react too aggressively to the fast-moving developments in Ukraine, where pro-Western demonstrators forced the nation’s Moscow-backed president from power over the weekend. National Security Adviser Susan E. Rice said the situation unfolding in Kiev “reflects the will of the Ukrainian people and the interests of the United States and Europe,” and that Russia would be making a “grave mistake” if it sends in military forces to try to reverse the developments — or to seize control of pro-Moscow eastern Ukraine. The Putin government has shown no outward signs

If this Harvard University student got her way, free speech on campus would be abolished and professors with dissenting views fired, because radical leftism is the only permissible political philosophy and the First Amendment is a barrier preventing modern colleges from fulfilling their proper role as indoctrination camps. Her name is Sandra Korn. She is a senior at Harvard and columnist for the Harvard Crimson. In a recent column, Korn unambiguously insisted that the university should stop guaranteeing professors and students the right to hold controversial views and pursue research that challenges liberalism. “If our university community opposes racism, sexism, and heterosexism, why

WASHINGTON — President Obama plans to announce on Tuesday the opening of two new manufacturing institutes in the Chicago and Detroit areas as part of a larger plan to use public-private partnerships to advance his agenda despite opposition from Republicans in Congress. Several federal agencies will join forces with companies and universities to run the institutes, which will be devoted to bridging the gap between applied research and product development, according to an administration official familiar with the plans. Each institute will function as a “teaching factory,” the official said, and will provide training for workers while also helping companies get the
