Christmas future bright
for Whitey Bulger kin

Boston Herald, by Howie Carr

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 12/20/2013 4:46:18 AM

Christmas is for cops and kids, Whitey Bulger used to say, but not this year. It’s a bleak Noel for all associated with Boston’s pre­eminent crime family, and not just because Uncle Jimmy won’t be home for Christmas, not even in his dreams. He’s gone from the Bay State for two life terms, plus five years. The Bureau of Prisons has shipped the coke-dealing serial killer west to Granny Warren’s hometown of Oklahoma City, his next destination parts unknown. Maybe Tulsa, maybe Miami, and sooner or later the federal graybar hotel known as Supermax. But let’s talk about the mass

Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson
Knew Exactly What He Was Doing
The Federalist, by Mollie Hemingway    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 12/20/2013 4:19:38 AM     Post Reply
The A&E channel says Phil Robertson, the patriarch of the wildly popular reality TV show “Duck Dynasty,” is off the show after saying homosexuality is sinful. (Snip)In any case, Douglas LeBlanc — a veteran journalist with Louisiana roots — offers his perspective and predictions on the matter: Phil Robertson knew exactly what he was doing in making his remarks to GQ. His making them as he did indicates that (a) he’s grown weary of accommodating A&E’s programmers and is happy to see a separation, (b) he doesn’t give the slightest damn what big-city yuppies will think of him, or both.

Across a circular expanse 180 feet high near the top of the U.S. Capitol rotunda, Kevin Hildebrand, the chief of the building’s Architecture division, spoke in words that echoed as they bounced off the walls. “Of course, the personification of freedom stamping out tyranny and injustice is right over my head,” he said, referring to the Apotheosis of Washington, a massive 19th century fresco featuring George Washington seated between Liberty and Victory, 13 maidens, and six figures representing War, Science, Marine, Commerce, Agriculture, and Mechanics. “It’s an amazing piece of artwork.” And it’s one worth preserving. Over 250 feet from the

Homeland Security helps smuggle illegal

A federal judge in Texas late last week accused the Obama administration of aiding drug cartels, saying that instead of enforcing immigration laws, agents knowingly helped smuggle an illegal immigrant girl into the U.S. to live with her mother, also an illegal immigrant, in Virginia. In a 10-page order, Judge Andrew S. Hanen said the case was the fourth such case he’s seen over the last month, and in each instance Customs and Border Protection agents have helped to locate and deliver the children to their illegal immigrant parents.

A&E TV’s decision to suspend Phil Robertson from Duck Dynasty is still lighting up social media. The network probably had some idea that any decision impacting its most popular show would generate a backlash, but probably underestimated just how large the reaction would be. Whether it had any idea of just how important a battle it was opening is something only the network execs really know. If they’re the typical broadcast execs, they probably have very little contact with the kind of people who watch Duck Dynasty, and have no idea why the show is as popular as it is. Wittingly

Attention, last-minute insurance shoppers: There are only four days before P-Day, Dec. 23. That´s the deadline for choosing a plan on an Obamacare insurance exchange to ensure that coverage begins on Jan. 1. If you´re scrambling to make last-minute arrangements, or waiting to hear if your insurer has actually received and approved your application, we know this is not your fault. For weeks, the government´s HealthCare.gov website repelled customers with the brutal efficiency of a nightclub bouncer. Even if you thought you completed the process, chances were good that your application information wasn´t accurately sent to insurers. If you´re among the millions

If "Duck Dynasty" network A&E feared advertisers would scatter like waterfowl after a shotgun blast because of Phil Robertson´s anti-gay comments ... it´s not happening. A company called Skyjacker -- which builds truck suspensions -- tells us it stands solidly behind Phil and the show ... saying it´s a matter of God and country -- it´s a free country and Phil has a right to his opinions. Company brass tells us it goes beyond the Constitution ... to the Creator: "We are a Christian- based company and actively share our faith so standing with Phil Robertson is an easy choice for us."

Joe Manchin Gives Marco Rubio Elephant-

Breitbart Big Government, by Frances Martel    Original Article

West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin found a way to give Sen. Marco Rubio a lump of coal for Christmas and not have it be an insult. Rubio, who began the year giving cable news fodder for his demise by drinking water and ends it as a Tea Party member with an asterisk to his name, certainly spent the year causing enough waves to expect a lump of coal from someone out there. At least this time, his gift was not the usual Santa punishment for children who had a naughty year but a symbol of hard work and integrity from a

Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson
celebrates vaginas and Christ

WASHINGTON– Straight people and Christians can’t have pride. If they show it, GLAAD calls our (normal) point of view homophobic or “vile and extreme” as it did when Phil Robertson, one of the stars of A&E’s reality show “Duck Dynasty,” said he liked vaginas and Christ. In an interview with GQ magazine, Robertson, like many Christians, lamented about the loss of morals—a sense of right and wrong—from our culture. “Sin becomes fine,” he said. As a Christian, Robertson added he believes homosexuality is a sin along with adultery and other acts noted in the Bible. As a heterosexual male,Robertson mused,

It’s early for a palate cleanser but I’m not sure this doesn’t qualify as legit news. I … did not expect to find myself eager to revisit the Romney 2012 campaign on film, but here we are, my friends. Here we are. It’s true that the trailer is more humanizing than anything Romney’s campaign did for him, but the deck is stacked. The bio video that the GOP produced for the convention was solid but nothing as stage-managed as campaign propaganda will ever have the disarming charm of behind-the-scenes footage of the candidates in unguarded moments. Plus, the trailer’s cheating by

It was 8:15ish am. I was driving home in my pride and joy, a turquoise Morris Minor convertible, from a refinery south of Odessa, Texas, my hometown, after 12 solid hours of the hardest, filthiest, stinkinest, horriblist work on planet Earth-or any other planet for that matter. I pulled into the little, owner-operated "fillin´ station," to get some 39 cents a gallon gasoline. I was filthy. I stunk... stank... whatever. I smelled like the acrid, rock hard, gunk, that I had been sledgehammering off the walls of the stinking, hot, gaseous steel tank, just a few minutes before, deep in the bowels of the

Is this man simply expressing his beliefs or spewing bigotry?Either way, Phil Robertson, the patriarch in A&E´s "Duck Dynasty," won´t be duck calling on air anytime soon. The network suspended him after slamming gays in a magazine interview. In the January issue of GQ, Robertson said homosexuality is a sin and puts it in the same category as bestiality and promiscuity. "It seems like, to me, a vagina -- as a man -- would be more desirable than a man´s anus. That´s just me. I´m just thinking: There´s more there! She´s got more to offer. I mean, come on, dudes!

A&E broke its silence on Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson’s anti-gay comments late Wednesday. The cable network announced Robertson is off the hit show for the time being. The network issued the following statement to EW: “We are extremely disappointed to have read Phil Robertson’s comments in GQ, which are based on his own personal beliefs and are not reflected in the series Duck Dynasty. His personal views in no way reflect those of A+E Networks, who have always been strong supporters and champions of the LGBT community. The network has placed Phil under hiatus from filming indefinitely.”

President Barack Obama sent Russia a clear message about its treatment of gays and lesbians with who he is — and isn’t — sending to represent the United States at the Sochi Olympics. Billie Jean King will be one of two openly gay athletes in the U.S. delegation for the opening and closing ceremonies, Obama announced Tuesday. For the first time since 2000, however, the U.S. will not send a president, former president, first lady or vice president to the Games. Russia has come under fierce criticism for passing national laws banning “gay propaganda.” Though the White House did not specifically address

The gay and lesbian rights group GLAAD is slamming ´Duck Dynasty´ patriarch Phil Robertson for comments he made about homosexuality to GQ magazine, and challenging the show´s network, A&E, to take action against its most popular star. In a wide-ranging interview, Robertson shared his thoughts on homosexuality and religion. After stating in very graphic terms his preference for heterosexual sex over homosexual sex, Robertson launched into more thoughts about homosexuality and sinning. “Everything is blurred on what’s right and what’s wrong... Sin becomes fine,” he said.

Yes, she really said it. On CNN’s Piers Morgan Live Tuesday, in a brief discussion about President Obama, Barbara Walters actually said, “We thought that he was going to be - I shouldn´t say this at Christmastime, but - the next messiah” (video follows with transcript and commentary): PIERS MORGAN, HOST: You have interviewed every president of my lifetime. Why is Obama facing so much opposition now? Why is he struggling so much to really fulfill the great flame of ambition and excitement that he was elected on originally in 2009?

Everyone is doing thoughtful year-end pieces on President Obama. Writers and reporters agree he’s had his worst year ever. I infer from most of their essays an unstated but broadly held sense of foreboding: There’s no particular reason to believe next year will be better, and in fact signs and indications point to continued trouble. I would add that in recent weeks I have begun to worry about the basic competency of the administration, its ability to perform the most fundamental duties of executive management. One reason I worry is that I frequently speak with people who interact with the White

O ne year removed from re-election, President Obama´s approval rating has sunk to the lowest level of his presidency. Furthermore, Obama´s popularity among the Democratic Party base — whose rejuvenated support proved crucial last November — took a huge hit this past year. Only 54 percent of self-described liberals "very strongly" approve of Obama´s job performance, according to a Pew survey released this week. That´s down from an all-time high of nearly 90 percent, and a significant decline from the 73 percent who strongly approved of the president back in June. Why the steep drop? Well, the first year of Obama´s second term

John Podesta was just named as a new senior-level adviser to President Obama last week, but he´s already ruffling Republican feathers. In a profile published late Tuesday night by Politico Magazine, Podesta is quoted comparing Republicans to the infamous cult led by Jim Jones, who was responsible for the 1978 cyanide poisoning of more than 900 of his followers in Guyana. "They need to focus on executive action given that they are facing a second term against a cult worthy of Jonestown in charge of one of the houses of Congress," said Podesta of what Obama´s White House team faces.

Hours after we reported that Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson dropped some illogical “logic” on homosexuality during his GQ interview, his home network A&E decided to indefinitely suspend him from the show. While Robertson’s comments were hilariously ignorant, they were predictable — especially given his family’s socially-conservative, Bible-loving image. Suspending the lead character for his wholly predictable comments is not only an overreaction but a gross misstep. To recap: The Duck Commander patriarch remarked to the men’s magazine that homosexuality is on par with bestiality, and used fifth-grade “logic” to imply that homosexual men should give up their ways of choosing a

The U.S. Army War College, which molds future field generals, has begun discussing whether it should remove its portraits of Confederate generals — including those of Robert E. Lee and Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson. Nestled in rural Pennsylvania on the 500-acre Carlisle Barracks, the war college is conducting an inventory of all its paintings and photographs with an eye for rehanging them in historical themes to tell a particular Army story. During the inventory, an unidentified official — not the commandant, Maj. Gen. Anthony A. Cucolo III — asked the administration why the college honors two generals who fought against the United States,
