Robertson Family Issues Statement
on Duck Dynasty’s Future on A&E

Mediaite, by Matt Wilstein

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 12/19/2013 11:07:59 PM

The night after A&E decided to suspend Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson over comments he made in an interview about homosexual sex, the Robertson family posted a statement to its website about the future of the show. Read the full statement below: We want to thank all of you for your prayers and support. The family has spent much time in prayer since learning of A&E’s decision. We want you to know that first and foremost we are a family rooted in our faith in God and our belief that the Bible is His word. While some of Phil’s unfiltered

Again, A&E made muti millions of dollars off this family and NOW they decide that threir values do not conform to their standards? I think this man was set up in order to put them in their place as they were the #1 show and could begin making demands. Which, I don´t see them doing. A&E and ALL OF Hollyweird are despicable scum, users and heretics. Let the network die a slow painful death during which all of its holdings, assets, etc., are lost. It will serve them right. Yes, that makes Phil a better Christian than I am, but I´m working on it. As we all are.

The Robertson family should tell A&E to bring back Phil Robertson or there will be no more shows.

Again (I´ve been saying this all day), do not buy Duck Dynasty merchandise if you want to show support for the Robertsons. Buy Duck Commander. A&E gets the lion´s share of DD merch sales.

I think A&E did this for several reasons and one of them was to goad a Chic-fil-A response where people would buy a bunch of DD gear to support their favorite TV family. A&E would rake it in and they´d also have satisfied their lefty cohorts who don´t like that they´ve given a platform to Christians.

I love this statement from the family. Unity is something the entertainment industry is often stymied by. Plus the fans who are making their voices heard. I don´t think this will end well for A&E.

Just remind everyone not to buy DD! It won´t support the Robertsons, it will support A&E.

I like the show, but wouldn´t mind a bit if the family pulled the plug on A&E. Glad to see them stand up for their beliefs and their patriarch; that´s the kind of people they are.

Somebody needs to draw the line against rampant P.C. and the huge double standard that is applied to Christians. Might as well be the Robertsons.

A&E did not think this through...as usual for a leftist organization, always a knee jerk reaction.

I am confident that the Robertson Family could produce the show themselves. and retain their sponsors.

I hope that is the direction they go; they have a #1 rated show, they can call their own shots. And, I will continue to pray for them all.

Next thing you know, Stinky and the IRS will try to audit them. If that happens, there will be a ground swell of problems for Obama, DOJ, and the IRS.

Its time to roll folks, the left has been unchallenged for the last 5 years. Enough is Enough with these Fascist. And, the RINOS who support them in Congress.

The internet is growing too, as a venue for good entertainment. My hubby gets on you tube for Gardening HowTos, stories and blogs of families on their farms, etc. I like travelogues of folks visiting far away historical places. We watch it all using our Apple TV. The Shaytards is a family-style You Tube channel with millions of loyal viewers. The Robertsons could go this route too!

A&E chooses to ignore the Wisdom of, ´´The family that prays together stays together,´´ eh?

...Hmmm, pondering why each nbc cable channel has morphed into one fantasy PC-message agenda, regardless of each one´s name & former supposed focus? ´Tis a conundrum.

God bless the Robertsons. Americans are sick of being pushed around by progressive bullies who deny there is a Christian majority in this country. They are about to come face to face with the reality that there are more of us than there are of them, and we are just not going to take it anymore. We are not brainwashed robots who will bow down to the PC overlords.

Listen to me, Duck family...WALK! Do NOT under any circumstances work out "a deal." Trust me, they´re going to come crawling back to you begging to cut some face-saving (for them) deal. Don´t do it.

This is a chance to take a stand, not just for yourselves but also for all decent Americans who have become marginalized, shut up, ostracized, extorted, pre-criminalized. You have the chance to show them...all of them...that we´re not taking it any more.

WALK! And don´t even look back. We´re with you.

Not knowing the terms of their contract, perhaps the Robertson family might duck walk right on over to Glenn Beck´s network and take him up on his offer, if in fact he has made one. A&E deserves a little smack down. The lib networks...Discovery, Cooking channels, just to name a few need a bit of tar and feathers. Time we God fearing people stood up for what´s right....and THIS is right. Together you stand and stand in strength ready to slay the Goliath. Bring it on.

The Lightbringer was, he claimed, against gay marriage - right up to the pivotal months of campaign 2012. Oddly, the Thought Police never tried to remove him from his job during his years of anti-gay bigotry.

If you are perceived as a loyal socialist, the Left will allow you to say, and do, literally anything. If you are not, they demand only your silence and obedience. America is still very much asleep about all this.

Duck Dynasty has a contract with A&E that they have to go over before they can walk if that is their plan. Glenn Beck has offered them to come on his programming, which I think would be so excellent. Then they can say whatsoever they want to say with no one to stop them.

#18, One of the things the POTUS did upon becoming POTUS was to appoint a Public Schools Czar who had plans to educate (indoctrinate) our school children about ´fisting´ and other sexual acts among homosexuals. Of course, the bluntness and contrast of "lifestyles" would not have been part of that "education". God and the Bible have been banned from school, so no worries about absolutes of right or wrong, good or evil, according to our Creator, there either. That´s way more than Phil´s calling male and female parts by their proper names.

It´s not as if Phil said homosexuals were like ´whited sepulchers´ as Jesus did the scribes and Pharisees.
Matthew 23:27 "Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men´s bones, and of all uncleanness."

He was only providing information from Scripture about homosexuality being listed among the sins in the inspired writing of the apostle Paul that would prevent inheritance of the kingdom of heaven.

House panel asks DOJ to consider
criminal prosecution for Lerner
Fox News, by Staff    Original Article

A House committee voted Wednesday to formally ask the Justice Department to consider criminal prosecution against ex-IRS official Lois Lerner, the figure at the center of the political targeting scandal. The House Ways and Means Committee voted 23-14 to send the criminal referral. The vote marked an escalation in Republicans´ push to confront Lerner over her role in the agency´s controversial practice of singling out conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status for extra scrutiny. On another front, a separate committee will vote Thursday on whether to hold her in contempt of Congress for twice refusing to testify on the scandal.

Data uncover nation’s top Medicare billers

The Medicare program is the source of a small fortune for many U.S. doctors, according to a trove of government records that reveal unprecedented details about physician billing practices nationwide. The government insurance program for older people paid nearly 4,000 physicians in excess of $1 million each in 2012, according to the new data. Those figures do not include what the doctors billed private insurance firms. The release of the information gives the public access for the first time to the billing practices of individual doctors nationwide. Consumer groups and news outlets have pressured Medicare to release the data for

In a contentious open-to-the-public hearing that lasted only few minutes, the House Ways and Means Committee voted this morning to immediately go into a closed session to discuss a letter proposed by the committee’s majority to refer former Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner to the Justice Department for possible criminal prosecution. When Ranking Member Sander Levin (D.-Mich.), seeking to make a point of order, repeatedly interrupted Chairman Dave Camp’s (R.-Mich.) attempt to start a roll-call vote intended to take the committee into closed session, Camp told him: “Just chill out.

Dr. Salomon Melgen, an eye doctor, major Democratic donor, and friend of Sen. Bob Menendez (D., N.J.), collected $20 million dollars from Medicare in 2012, the Washington Times reports. Salomon Melgen’s practice charged the Medicare program for 37,075 injections of a macular degeneration drug to 645 different patients. The government paid him back at an average reimbursement of nearly $320 for each procedure, according to the records.

It’s only April 2014, but a minor boom for a Rick Perry presidential candidacy seems to be cropping up online, first in the Fiscal Times and then on Jennifer Rubin’s WaPo blog, despite the Texas governor’s misfire the first time around. He was the frontrunner in the 2012 campaign before that debate when he could not recall the names of all the federal agencies he wanted to eliminate completely (three at the time, but maybe he should consider doubling or tripling it this go round). A good deal of his forgetfulness, I am certain, was attributable to Perry’s then recent

While Russian President Vladimir Putin foments unrest in Ukraine as a potential guise to plunder more territory, President Obama unleashes Captain Obvious and Secretary Shuttle. Captain Obvious is White House press secretary Jay Carney, the former Moscow bureau chief for Time magazine who told reporters Monday, "If Russia moves into Eastern Ukraine, either overtly or covertly, this would be a very serious escalation." No kidding. Like the time Putin moved into Crimea over White House objections – overtly, covertly and permanently? Thrusting his lower lip into a serious-face pout, Carney solemnly revealed nothing we didn´t already know. "What´s clear is

More mothers have been staying home with their children since the recession ended, but a growing number of them say that’s primarily because they can’t find a job, according to a new study. Almost three in 10 mothers with children under 18 living with them are stay-at-home moms, an analysis of Census Bureau data by the Pew Research Center showed. That is a 3 percentage point jump from the depth of the recession in 2008. (Snip) After decades of decline, the share of mothers with children in the house has been growing since around 2000.

The chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee says investigators have uncovered evidence that a former Internal Revenue Service official may have committed crimes as part of the agency´s tea party controversy. Rep. Dave Camp set a committee vote for Wednesday on whether to refer Lois Lerner, who used to head the agency´s tax-exempt division, to the Justice Department "for possible criminal prosecution." Camp, R-Mich., did not specify which laws Lerner may have broken. Lerner´s lawyer, William W. Taylor III, has said she broke no laws.

The Democratic National Committee is furious by a conservative website’s ad campaign that depicts Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi clad in a bikini in a provocative pose with her tongue sticking out. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, called on Republicans to press Breitbart News to remove the artwork — one of several suggestive images on the website promoting the new California site. The image of Pelosi, beneath one of California Gov. Jerry Brown’s face photo-shopped onto a flexing body builder, includes the sub-head: “Because you can’t make this s— up.” “To say the least,

A caveat right off the bat: RAND’s estimate only runs through March 28 whereas the actual deadline for signing up was March 31st. Given the crush of traffic on Healthcare.gov in late March, many more people could have signed up over those last three days than were captured by these numbers. On the other hand, the White House was claiming six million sign-ups as of March 27. There’s no way to reconcile that with RAND’s data. One of them is wrong. Maybe both, in fact.

As the House prepares for several key votes on former Internal Revenue Service employee Lois G.

Ms. Lerner faces a vote in the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on Thursday that could begin the process of accusing her of contempt of Congress. The Ways and Means Committee announced that it will hold a vote Wednesday on whether to officially accuse Ms. Lerner of breaking the law by
