Sen. Johnson files lawsuit to
eliminate ObamaCare subsidy for Congress

Fox News, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 1/6/2014 11:09:59 PM

Sen. Ron Johnson told Fox News’ Megyn Kelly Monday he decided to sue the Obama administration over the subsidy for lawmakers in the president’s health care law because it is unfair to give members of Congress special treatment. Johnson, R-Wis., said the subsidy creates a double standard that favors members of Congress and their staff over other Americans, and should be eliminated. “It’s a matter of basic fairness,” Johnson said. “It’s also a matter of standing up, ensuring that we actually enforce the rule of law because, let’s face it, this president across the board is pretty well just ignoring

I don´t know much about Senator Johnson, but he´s on the right side of this issue.

I suppose both the Republican, and democrat leaderships´ will work to destroy him.

Ron Johnson is a wealthy businessman from Oshkosh, Wisconsin, who had done nothing in politics until he ran a flawless campaign for Senator and won. He is direct and no-nonsense and is the Senator who goaded Hilary into her “What difference does it make?” comment. i wish Senator Johnson would consider running for President but I doubt he wants the hassle. Sadly, Wisconsin went from electing this excellent conservative to the Senate to then electing a liberal fool, Tammy Baldwin.

Since the deaths of Ron Brown and Vince Foster, and a host of others, I´ve been wondering if we as regular folks can take out life insurance policies on politicians with us being the beneficiaries. We could have made a bundle during the Clintonista Regime.

I prefer the headline to read: "Sen. Johnson files lawsuit to eliminate ObamaCare for Congress." Or better yet, "Sen. Johnson files lawsuit to eliminate ObamaCare."

This is a case where the Executive Branch is defying the law to benefit Congressional staffers. I love the idea of Congressmen suing the administration to make them follow the law. I see several opportunities to sue the EPA.

´Noah´ Cashes in on Faith-Based
Trend, Misses Big Picture
Breitbart Big Hollywood, by Sam Sorbo    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 3/30/2014 4:50:47 PM     Post Reply
If a Christian man marries an atheist woman, and they name their child Noah after the Biblical hero, is Noah a Christian? It takes a great deal more than words to be a Christian, or even to truthfully call oneself religious; but in Hollywood, where superficiality rules, spirituality is like an all-access pass, no Biblical understanding required. Apparently, Paramount Studios caught wind of all the hullabaloo about how the American public is clamoring for faith-based films. They got a Christian producer and a first-rate, albeit atheist, director, and the project was quickly green-lighted. However, as the saying goes, the devil

GREECE, N.Y.- At their most recent monthly meeting, the five members of the Greece Town Board took their seats, gaveled to order and moved quickly through the regular opening agenda: Roll Call. (Check.) Pledge of Allegiance. (Check.) Moment of Prayer. (Check.) Leaders of this town of 96,000 outside Rochester say they have no plans to shake up the longtime routine unless, of course, the U.S. Supreme Court orders them to. A ruling could come any day now on whether the town violated the Constitution with its opening prayers because nearly every one in an 11-year span was overtly Christian. This

With the end of the month bringing to a close the latest political fundraising quarter, Vice President Joe Biden is warning that without a ton of new money, the Democrats could lose the Senate to Sen. Ted Cruz. “We could lose,” is the headline on his fundraising email for the Democratic Party. “Losing will mean more senators like Ted Cruz, and more Tea Party Republicans in the House,” he cries out in the email published below: I´ve been in this business a long time, and I´ve seen a lot of deadlines come and go.

LOS ANGELES- Kraft Macaroni & Cheese has been a favorite meal for generations of American children, but smaller brands made with more natural ingredients are starting to nibble at its market share, part of a trend that is biting into growth at large U.S. food companies. Zenobia Godschalk, an Atlanta mother of two young boys, stopped buying Kraft´s "mac and cheese" after reading its complicated ingredient list. Now she buys Annie´s organic version in bulk at Costco Wholesale Corp . "I´m fully aware that it is not a health food," said Godschalk, of Annie´s macaroni and cheese product. "But the

Some weekends, the stories just seem to write themselves. You probably heard by now that the National Labor Relations Board (NRLB), in their infinite wisdom, put the stamp of approval on college football players being treated as full time employees with the right to unionize. Well, I suppose everything comes with a few unintended consequences, as reported by Rare. Northwestern University became the first school in the nation to deem its football players full-time employees, thus making them eligible for union representation and health insurance benefits including maternity coverage.

Biden economics: Minimum wage
hike worth billions, ‘really good

Washington Times (D.C), by Dave Boyer    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 3/30/2014 2:48:56 PM     Post Reply
Vice President Joseph R. Biden asked Americans Saturday to confront lawmakers who oppose raising the federal minimum wage. “Ask your representatives who oppose raising the federal minimum wage—why do they oppose it?” Mr. Biden said in the White House weekly address. “There’s no reason in the world why an American working 40 hours a week has to live in poverty.” President Obama is waging an election-year push with congressional Democrats to boost the federal minimum wage from $7.25 to $10.10 per hour. Many Republican lawmakers oppose the action, pointing to a study that the move would eliminate about 500,000 jobs

Is George Orwell Working in

You have to wonder sometimes if one of the multitude of “special advisors” to Barack Obama has a George Orwell fetish. All of us have read hundreds of blog articles and thousands of comments made in passing by co-workers, family, friends and the occasional total stranger that allude to the Obama administration and it’s resemblance to George Orwell’s seminal work, 1984. There have even been references to Orwell’s 1984 in columns published in the normally slavishly supportive main stream media, which are always easy to identify since the White House normally describes them as “hit pieces.” Orwellian descriptions of totalitarianism

This week the indictment and arrests of leading San Francisco and California Democrat politicians follows a long string of corruption cases involving prominent Democrats. It brings to mind the ridiculous charges by Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi (echoing Howard Dean) that the Republicans were responsible for a “culture of corruption” and that she, a woman, was going to sweep the Congress clean of it. Included in her litany of things charged as corrupt was the Medicare Prescription Drug Bill which she attacked in a press release and privileged resolution on December 8, 2005: Across the country, seniors are trying to navigate the

After the No.1-seed Arizona Wildcats suffered a gut-wrenching, devastating and stunning loss to No.2-seed Wisconsin in overtime 64-63 in the West Regional final in Anaheim on Saturday evening, Arizona fans and students at the Tuscon, Arizona campus promptly rioted. According to the Daily Wildcat, the student paper, that prompted police to shoot tear gas at the crowd of students and fire beanbags. Officers also reportedly beat a crowd member. Students threw smoke bombs and also threw beer, sparklers at police. Crowd members yelling "they can´t take us all" — Daily Wildcat (@dailywildcat) March 30, 2014

The transition from college to adult life is treacherous, and this is nowhere more visible than among new college graduates in their first real jobs. A few years ago, I took it upon myself to start writing tips for the young staff where I work about how to avoid doing things that would make their supervisors write them off. It began as a lark as I wrote tips with titles such as, "Excise the word ´like´ from your spoken English." But eventually, I found myself getting into the deeper waters of how to go about living a good life. At that point, I had to deal with a reality: When it comes to a life filled with deep and lasting satisfactions, most of the clichés are

The biggest lease holder in the northern Alberta oil sands is a subsidiary of Koch Industries,” began a lengthy story in The Washington Post March 20. “The finding about the Koch acreage is likely to inflame the already contentious debate about the Keystone XL Pipeline,” wrote Post reporters Steven Mufson and Juliet Eilperin. Which was the purpose of a two- page “report” issued by the International Forum on Globalization, on which the Post story is based. “IFG’s intention is to demonstrate the Koch-Keystone connection,” their source told them.

After a disastrous presidential campaign in 2012, can Texas Governor Rick Perry mount a credible bid for the White House in 2016? Texas Governor Rick Perry is currently on a media tour touting the theme that America is a great place for second chances, specifically second chances for Texas governors with national ambitions. Perry is trying to erase the memory of his disastrous 2012 GOP presidential campaign which included “brain-farts” and “oops” debate moments with his folksy, charming, and uniquely American manner. Curious about Perry’s comeback strategy, I asked Texan and GOP presidential media guru, Mark McKinnon and he said,

A startling rift appeared Tuesday on the Supreme Court as the three female Justices came out swinging like Brunnhildes — women warriors — for what they erroneously labeled an “entitlement” to employer-provided contraceptives and morning-after pills. The Justices were hearing oral arguments in Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc., a case hyped by the Democratic Party as a test for women’s rights. Justices Kagan, Ginsberg, and Sotomayor sprang on Hobby Lobby’s attorney , interrupting his every sentence and pummeling him with questions taken right out of the Democratic Party’s “war on women” playbook. That playbook was laid out in a

Las Vegas - Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft former Florida governor Jeb Bush into the 2016 presidential race, courting him and his intimates and starting talks on fundraising strategy. Concerned that the George Washington Bridge traffic scandal has damaged New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s political standing and alarmed by the steady rise of Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.), prominent donors, conservative leaders and longtime operatives say they consider Bush the GOP’s brightest hope to win back the White House.

The past couple of weeks have marked a turning point in American ugliness as the mob has turned its full fury on first lady Michelle Obama. From criticism of her trip to China to a recent “tell-all” by former White House assistant press secretary Reid Cherlin in the New Republic about Obama’s allegedly tyrannical behavior, the gloves have been removed. As described, she was a perfectionist — super-attentive to detail and laser-focused on advance planning. And this is bad because? Worse, according to a former (anonymous) staffer, there was no barometer for meeting Obama’s high standards. “The first lady having

Where’s the beef? That’s what the carnivores were wondering as they arrived at the Boathouse in Central Park for the “Noah” party. The buffet tables were loaded with various forms of edible vegetable matter, but there was no meat, fish or cheese — because director Darren Aronofsky is vegan, as was the hero of his biblical epic, as played by Russell Crowe. To underscore the point in the movie, which also stars Emma Watson and Jennifer Connelly, villain Tubal-cain (Ray Winstone) eagerly bites the head off an unidentified reptile and devours it raw. Meat = evil. Got it. As hungry Boathouse guests bellied

If Betsey McCaughey is correct (and I bet she is, because she has not only read the entire ObamaCare bill, she has written a book about it), Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan publicly humiliated herself during the oral arguments on the Hobby Lobby case, revealing that she either did not read the law, or failed to comprehend it if she did so. Writing in the New York Sun, McCaughey lays out what is wrong with the Justice’s declaration about Obamacare: she asserted that the statute itself mandates provision of birth control. Not one word in the Affordable Care Act guarantees health plans will cover birth control products.

Obamacare supporters are taking a bit of a victory lap today after yesterday’s administration announcement that six million people have signed up for private plans under the law, equaling the revised projection put out by the Congressional Budget Office after the botched launch of the exchanges last October. It’s a weak cause for celebration, given that success, according to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, was originally "at least" seven million people getting covered under the law by the end of March. And as an Obamacare factoid, the six million sign-ups figure just doesn’t tell us all that much

Former U.S. Senator Bob Kerrey thinks President Barack Obama, a fellow Democrat, was re-elected in 2012 because he ´sucked less´ than former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. The Nebraskan straight-talker told MailOnline in an exclusive interview that Obama isn´t up to the job of bringing liberals and conservatives to the table to rescue America´s slowly choking entitlement programs. And Obama, he said Wednesday in his Manhattan office, knew full well he was lying when he promised that the Affordable Care Act would allow Americans to keep insurance plans they liked. ´He had to know he was misleading the audience,´ Kerrey said
