Effort Underway to Override
State Laws Penalizing Those
Who Expose Others to HIV

PJ Media, by Bridget Johnson

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/2/2013 7:51:11 PM

WASHINGTON — As the U.S. marked World AIDS Day with a population of more than 1.1 million infected with HIV, a bicameral movement is underway in Congress to get the federal government to override state laws criminalizing exposure to the virus. Proponents argue that even though there is still no cure for AIDS, advancements in drug therapies mean HIV isn’t as deadly as it once was. They also contend that laws against potential transmission of the virus — centering around full disclosure of one’s illness to a sexual partner — just stigmatize and oppress those infected with HIV. Sen. Chris

Comments:
It´s obvious this corrupt DOJ doesn´t care about states´ rights. I have never in my lifetime have seen an administration more influenced by radical ideology rather than obey their oaths of office and protect the citizens of this country from harm. And everywhere you turn you don´t see anyone stopping them.

I would think the gay community would be most outraged by this effort. It´s their quality of life that is at stake to a large extent. Yes, their life is not automatically over with Aids, but it can´t be pleasant or inexpensive to treat.

Yep, they want to pollute the blood supply too. I don´t give a damn what the new meds do. There is no excuse to bow down to a special group in order to massage their egos.

If someone knows they have HIV and has unprotected sex with someone who has no clue, then that is murder. Pretty simple.

Hundreds and thousands of gay men are dead thanks to the selfish activists who demanded deviation from the standard operating procedure for dealing with communicable diseases. You´d think someone on their side would notice and mourn the loss.

GE Will No Longer Design Projects

Breitbart´s Big Government, by William Bigelow    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 2/21/2014 8:45:15 PM     Post Reply
In a watershed moment and a huge victory over environmentalists, General Electric has agreed to stop projects that are designed solely for the purpose of carbon dioxide reductions to please those who lobby for climate change concessions. The National Center for Public Policy Research, a non-partisan, free-market, independent conservative think-tank which has been fighting GE for years because of GE’s liberal bias under CEO Jeffrey Immelt, scored a huge victory after receiving the commitment from General Electric. Late in 2013, the National Center submitted a shareholder proposal as part of GE´s 2014 proxy statement and annual meeting materials. The proposal: ...request[ed] that the

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor on Friday sent GOP lawmakers a memo outlining the chamber´s winter agenda, which mostly excludes major legislation, instead aiming to blunt the impact of the health care law and regulations implemented by the “imperial presidency” of the Obama administration. Cantor announced that lawmakers will vote the week of March 10 on legislation aimed at curbing what the GOP views as an abuse of power by President Obama, who has said repeatedly in recent weeks that he plans to advance his agenda through executive action that does not require Congressional approval.“Declaring that he has a ‘pen

Citing “extraordinary interference” from politicians, the United Auto Workers (UAW) on Friday asked a federal labor board to toss out last week’s union election vote in Tennessee. The UAW alleges that Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) and other politicians interfered in the closely watched vote at a Volkswagen plant in Chattanooga, and is asking the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) to order a new election. “It is extraordinary interference in the private decision of workers to have a U.S. senator, a governor and leaders of the state legislature threaten the company with the denial of economic incentives and workers with a loss of

In the wake of an appeals court ruling allowing an illegal immigrant gang member to remain in the country because he renounced his membership, a couple of GOP lawmakers are calling on the Justice Department to appeal. On Jan. 23 in the matter of Martinez v. Holder, the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that Julio Martinez, an illegal immigrant MS-13 member from El Salvador, could remain in the U.S. because he renounced his membership and that gang members in El Salvador would kill him if he returns.

Rep. Marsha Blackburn introduced a bill Friday that would keep the Obama administration from taking another stab at net neutrality rules. The Tennessee Republican announced that she would be introducing the bill on Wednesday, when Federal Communications Commission Chairman Tom Wheeler said that he would be attempting to rewrite the agency´s net neutrality rules. Those rules, which prevented Internet providers from blocking or slowing access to certain websites, were overturned by a federal court earlier this year. Wheeler said Wednesday that the agency would be rewriting the rules according to the court´s decision. The bill that Blackburn introduced Friday —

Four United States Senators have a written a letter to FBI director James Comey about the indictment of author and filmmaker Dinesh D´Souza. Senators Charles Grassley, ranking member of the Judiciary Committee, Jeff Sessions, Ted Cruz, and Mike Lee are the four senators, all Republicans, to have signed the letter.

To conduct what critics are calling an intrusive examination of newsrooms across America, the Federal Communications Commission tapped a Beltway firm whose philosophy aligned neatly with the study´s goals -- which were to promote "diversity" in the newsroom, presumably in terms of who is hired and what is covered. Those goals sound innocuous enough, but the study has run into a buzz saw of criticism on Capitol Hill as lawmakers question whether it could be used to pressure media outlets into changing their coverage. The criticism led the FCC on Friday to significantly back off the review. The company, however, tapped to lead

WASHINGTON — Federal authorities say 25 people have been charged in a wide-ranging scheme to obtain millions of dollars in fraudulent Medicaid payments from the District of Columbia government. U.S. Attorney Ronald Machen calls it the largest health-care fraud case in the city’s history. It involved bogus claims for home care services, a category of Medicaid claim that has grown dramatically in the city over the past eight years. Machen says fraud is largely responsible for the increase in those claims. The uptick in billings for home care — from $40 million in 2006 to $280 million last year —

Two Louisiana teenagers have been charged with second-degree murder in an attack motivated by a competition between the two to see who could hit harder, according to local police. Windall Herring, 19, and an unnamed 15-year-old were arrested in Baton Rouge on Tuesday for the murder of 55-year-old John Bannon. The attack occurred near Bannon’s home around 9:30 p.m. on Feb. 1. Bannon was rushed to a hospital trauma unit, but succumbed last Friday to his injuries which included a fractured skull and brain hemorrhaging, according to The (Baton Rouge) Advocate “During our investigation we learned that the suspects were having a conversation

What´s the matter with Kansas? A bill protecting the religious freedom of businesses and individuals to refuse services to same-sex couples passed the state House of Representatives last week. It was blessedly killed in the state Senate on Tuesday. Similar bills have cropped up in a half-dozen states in an effort to protect anti-gay religious believers against lawsuits. A florist in Washington state, a Colorado baker and a New Mexico photographer have been sued for refusing to serve gay couples getting married. They say to do so would be to "celebrate" nuptials at odds with their Christian faith. It´s probably news to

Singer Ted Nugent apologized on Friday for calling President Obama a “subhuman mongrel” last month. “I do apologize, not necessarily to the president, but on behalf of much better men than myself,” Nugent said in a radio interview on “The Ben Ferguson Show." The rocker said he was sorry for using “street fighter terminology of subhuman mongrel,’” and admitted "I did cross the line.” Nugent said he should have used a term such as “violator of his oath, the Constitution” instead.

First conservative icon Thomas Sowell turned on Ted Cruz, now it appears that Ann Coulter is souring on the Texas Republican as well. Sowell published two columns this week slamming Cruz for being self-serving. Coulter praised the first of Sowell’s columns in a tweet Wednesday. Later, in an appearance on Fox News’ “Hannity” Wednesday night, Coulter doubled down on her praise of Sowell’s anti-Cruz column: ”I never push anyone else’s column but mine. Today everyone has got to read Thomas Sowell’s article.” During the “Hannity” segment, Coulter attacked tea party groups for being filled with “shysters” and “conmen,” naming specifically the Senate Conservatives

Sarah Palin has made an endorsement in Texas. She’s backing tea party leader Katrina Pierson over Rep. Pete Sessions. In a Facebook post, Palin notes that Pierson’s “life’s story is full of hardships she has fought to overcome, which taught her firsthand the importance of self-reliance, hard work, and the blessings of liberty.” One of those hardships includes a 1997 arrest for shoplifting. As the Dallas Morning News reported on Valentine’s Day, “In 1997, five days before her 21st birthday, Katrina Pierson, then named Katrina Lanette Shaddix, was arrested on a charge of theft of greater than $50 and less than $500.” Pierson,

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, may be the brightest light to adorn the Republican Party in many years. He knows how to make the case for conservative ideas, pointing, for example, to the contrasting fates of Detroit and Houston to illustrate the superiority of conservative policies. So it´s particularly galling to see that rather than train his fire at President Barack Obama and the liberal machine that cocoons him, Cruz has become a one-man wrecking ball against Republicans. His most recent foray into sabotaging his colleagues concerned the debt limit increase. Because Speaker John Boehner sent over a "clean" debt limit bill,

I also believe that those scientists who pretend to know exactly what this will cause in 20, 30 or 50 years are white-coated propagandists. “The debate is settled,” asserted propagandist in chief Barack Obama in his latest State of the Union address. “Climate change is a fact.” Really?

How much more are black people in this country supposed to take? On Saturday, a Florida jury failed to convict Michael Dunn for the callous murder of Jordan Davis. Though he was convicted of three counts of attempted murder and also on a gun charge, a mistrial was declared for the first-degree murder charge. He will face substantial jail time – perhaps up to 75 years on the four charges for which he was found guilty. Prosecutor Angela Corey has also publicly declared her intent to seek retrial on the murder conviction. However, she is the same prosecutor who oversaw the Zimmerman

Listening to pundits talk about the potential 2016 Republican field, you’d be forgiven for forgetting about Rick Santorum. The former senator’s strong second-place showing in 2012 shocked—even scared—the GOP’s kingmakers, who saw in him an abortion-hating firebrand with no chance of beating Barack Obama. So it’s no surprise that today, the party’s mainstreamers are acting like he’s old news, again dismissing a Santorum presidential candidacy. Not that he cares. He’s too busy plotting another possible run at the White House. In recent months, Santorum has gathered his inner circle of longtime advisers to sketch out a presidential campaign. He’s scheduling trips to

FRESNO, Calif.- Federal officials say many farmers caught in California´s drought will receive no irrigation water this year from a vast system of rivers, canals and reservoirs interlacing the state. The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation announced Friday it will continue to monitor rain and snowfall, but at this point there´s not enough water in the Central Valley Project to give water to farmers. Last year, Central Valley farmers received 20 percent of their normal allowance, and that figure is now set at zero percent. This marks the third dry year for the state, and Gov.

The Federal Communications Commission is trying to reassure House Republicans it has no plans to restrict the freedom of the press. In a letter released Thursday, FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler told Republican leaders of the House Energy and Commerce Committee his commission “has no intention of regulating political or other speech of journalists or broadcasters.” Wheeler defended new FCC research as the first step toward pinpointing “market barriers” that might affect the “diversity of media voices.” Republicans expressed concern the FCC´s study was an attempt "to control the political speech of journalists” by reviving the Fairness Doctrine, now-extinct rules that required radio and
