Interpreter Snores On Phone After
Being On Hold With Obamacare Counselor

Associated Press, by Staff

Posted By:KarenJ1, 4/1/2014 10:44:25 AM

HOUSTON — In San Antonio, a line of last-minute health care consumers stretched a quarter of the way around the Alamodome. In Houston, the search was on for interpreters to help people enroll for insurance. Those trained to assist with the rush in Dallas prepared to work well past 11 p.m. And in the Rio Grande Valley, an organizer scurried between stacks of library books trying to help a half-dozen people get health care. This is what the final day of open enrollment in President Barack Obama’s health insurance marketplace looked like in Texas — the state with the highest

Comments:
What a perfect example of the incompetence of the idiots involved in Obamacare. APee states "On Monday, more than a half-dozen people from Ethiopia, Nepal, Eritrea, Somalia, Iraq, Iran and other war-torn areas waited inside a small room to see the navigator." Oh sigh. How many of the are illegal??

Fictions as Truth
PJ Media, by Victor Davis Hanson    Original Article

For the Obama administration narrative to be accurate about the swap of five Taliban/al-Qaeda-related kingpins for Sgt. Bergdahl, we are asked to believe the following: 1. Sgt. Bergdahl was in ill health; thus the need for alacrity. Surely we will expect to see him in an enfeebled state on his return to the U.S. 2. Sgt. Bergdahl was in grave and sudden danger from his captors; thus the need for alacrity. We expect to see proof of that on his return to the U.S. 3. The five Taliban detainees will be under guard in Qatar for a year. We expect in June 2015

State Dep’t Official Advises Against
Conflating Islamists With Terrorists

The desire of some elements in the Middle East to “eliminate Islamists entirely from the political scene” was complicating the fight against violent extremists, a senior State Department official said on Monday, citing the tendency of some to “conflate Islamists with terrorists.” The remarks were made in Doha by Assistant Secretary for the Near East Anne Patterson, whose tenure as U.S. ambassador to Egypt was marred by allegations that she was too cozy with the Islamist Muslim Brotherhood before the military ousted it last July. “The United States is well aware that there are deep differences among our friends in this region

IRS Sent Confidential Information
On Nonprofit Groups To FBI Days
Before 2010 Midterm Elections

Former Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner sent confidential taxpayer information about nonprofit groups to the Federal Bureau of Investigation days before the 2010 midterm elections. New emails provided by the Department of Justice (DOJ) to the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform for its investigation into the IRS targeting scandal show that the IRS sent 21 disks containing 1.1 million pages of information on groups to the FBI, which is overseen by DOJ, in October 2010. DOJ has the authority to monitor elections nationwide. Lerner previously coordinated with DOJ in 2013 to attempt to prosecute conservative activist groups. The Daily Caller

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) has a tongue-in-cheek suggestion for President Obama: Negotiate another prisoner exchange, but this time trade five senior Democrats for a U.S. Marine being held in Mexico. Addressing the GOP convention in Fort Worth, Texas Friday, Paul said a delegate he had been chatting to had said, “There is one guy who is kind of deserving we ought to try to get home, and that’s the Marine who accidentally carried his guns into Mexico.” “So here’s what I’m thinking: Mr. President, you love to trade people.” “Why don’t we set up a trade?

The Department of Justice (DOJ) announced Friday a new federal program to help minors who enter the U.S. illegally without a parent or guardian while at the same time expanding opportunities for “national service.” Described in a press release as a “strategic partnership” between DOJ and the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS), which administers AmeriCorps, Attorney General Eric Holder said the effort will “protect the rights of the most vulnerable members of society.” “With the launch of justice AmeriCorps, we´re taking a historic step to strengthen our justice system and protect the rights of the most vulnerable members of society,”

Making America´s Institutions Weaker?
Breitbart´s Big Government, by Robert Wilde    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 6/9/2014 9:26:10 PM     Post Reply
In his new book, Making Gay Okay: How Rationalizing Homosexual Behavior is Changing Everything, Robert R. Reilly argues that the American public is being forced to think that homosexuality is morally acceptable. Reilly contends that the gay movement transformed from an initial plea for tolerance into a movement that forcefully demands universal acceptance by all societal institutions. Reilly told Breitbart Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon in an interview on Breitbart News Sunday that he believes that at the heart of the gay movement is a "rationalization" to change what is actual sexual misbehavior and make it acceptable. Reilly said that, in

With illegal immigrants streaming across the southern border, senior Obama administration officials couldn´t provide reporters specific information about how many have been released from custody into the U.S. on a conference call with reporters Monday, prompting frustration from the 4th Estate. The call was on “background,” which means that the government officials providing the information can be quoted, but not by name, a fact that didn´t sit well with the first questioner. “First can somebody explain why it´s on background, considering last week, [name redacted], you were on the record?” a reporter asked. “But second can you guys discuss in

ABC has announced that Barbara Walters will have the first interview with UC-Santa Barbara shooter Elliot Rodger´s father. Peter Rodger has not spoken out about his son´s killing spree that left six dead and 13 others injured before killing himself. The special will mark the famed broadcaster´s first return to television since she retired last month. ABC did not reveal when the interview will air, saying only that it will be an upcoming special edition of 20/20. The killer´s mother, Li-Chin Rodger, was the first one to realize that something was awry at the time of his killing spree. Li-Chin,

Parents at a middle school in California are up in arms after it emerged their children were given a sex-ed class laced with crude memes. ´That´s something you can´t unsee,´ one parent, who asked not to be identified, told ABC15. ´This is definitely more than R-rated. This is X-rated.´ The X-rated presentation titled ´Top Conception Myths´ was out on for pupils at Pine Valley Middle School in San Ramon.

The White House is throwing its weight behind new power plant regulations. Using a carefully executed, months-long strategy, the Obama administration is sending a strong signal that it believes Democrats have the upper hand on public opinion concerning emissions limits on power plants. The White House prepared the runway months in advance of the June 2 landing for the Environmental Protection Agency´s proposal, which aims to slash carbon emissions 30 percent below 2005 levels by 2030. It´s the single largest effort by the EPA to address climate change, but it´s also prompted harsh criticism from conservatives and centrist Democrats for

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton´s publisher is encouraging children to read her latest memoir, “Hard Choices,” for inspiration. In a note to Clinton supporters, Simon & Schuster Publisher Jonathan Karp said, “One day, soon, my daughter will be reading ‘Hard Choices’ and finding great inspiration in Hillary Clinton´s work.” Karp told the story of sitting with his nine-year-old daughter at the computer and Googling “the most admired woman in the world.” He added, “You can imagine whose name was the first to appear on the screen, again and again and again.” His note is just one that many Clinton allies are issuing

During the interview with ABC News’ Diane Sawyer set to air in primetime tonight, Hillary Clinton said criticism over her handling of the 2012 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya gives her “more of a reason” to run for president in 2016 than a reason not to. “Actually, it’s more of a reason to run, because I do not believe our great country should be playing minor league ball. We ought to be in the majors,” Clinton said, according to a transcript. “I view this as really apart from — even a diversion from — the hard work that

Hillary Clinton, who recently raked in $5 million dollars in speaking fees in 15 months, recounted to Diane Sawyer the sad tale of her former destitution, telling her, “We came out of the White House not only dead broke but in debt.” According to Clinton, she and her husband, who has made over $100 million since leaving the White House, “struggled to, you know, piece together the resources for mortgages for houses, for Chelsea’s education, you know, it was not easy.” But, as Clinton’s story goes, the two hard-working, middle-class millionaires somehow managed to put food on the table in

The platoon was, an American military official would assert years later, “raggedy.”On their tiny, remote base, in a restive sector of eastern Afghanistan at an increasingly violent time of the war, they were known to wear bandannas and cutoff T-shirts. Their crude observation post was inadequately secured, a military review later found. Their first platoon leader, and then their first platoon sergeant, were replaced relatively early in the deployment because of problems. But the unit — Second Platoon, Blackfoot Company in the First Battalion, 501st Regiment — might well have remained indistinguishable from scores of other Army platoons

California Chrome flamed out in his bid for Triple Crown glory Saturday — and then his irate co-owner launched verbal bombs at the competition. The high drama at the 146th Belmont Stakes began with California Chrome finishing in a dead heat for fourth and ended with a shocking rant by outspoken co-owner Steve Coburn. The cowboy hat-wearing Coburn took aim at the winner Tonalist for cherry-picking races — sitting out the first two legs of the Triple Crown before competing at the Belmont. “That’s the coward’s way out,” he fumed. “It’s not fair to these horses that have been in the game since

Democratic strategist and former Clinton-campaign manager Donna Brazile said this morning that veterans accusing recently returned Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl of desertion are part of a “PR campaign by Republicans.” After fellow panelist Ana Navarro noted that members of Bergdahl’s unit had consistently expressed concerns about the circumstances of his capture, Brazile said it was an effort to “muddy the waters” surrounding the prisoner deal. Quickly criticized for the comment by her fellow panelists on CNN, she said that she’d never impugn the testimony of a veteran, but stood by her comments. “That’s all they do . . . all they do

PARIS- Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl has told people treating him at a U.S. military medical facility in Germany that he was tortured, beaten and held in a cage by his Taliban captors in Afghanistan after he tried to escape, a senior U.S. official said Sunday. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss what Bergdahl has revealed about the conditions of his captivity. The official said it was difficult to verify the accounts Bergdahl has given since his release a week ago. Bergdahl, now 28, was captured in June 2009 after he disappeared from his

Texas State Sen. Wendy Davis suggested that the Republican stance on immigration is a racist one, and that conservatives simply don’t like “people who don’t look like them.” “You need look no further than what happened in Arizona with their anti-immigration bill and the withdrawal of tourism and the impact to their economy as a consequence of what ideological thinkers did to that state,” the Democrat said at a Human Rights Campaign PAC fundraiser in Austin, The Daily Caller reported. Miss Davis is running for governor against Republican Attorney General Greg Abbott, who is leading by double digits in most polls.

The Obama administration gave the parents of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl extraordinary insider access to the military’s hunt for their son by having them take part in a series of secure video conferences with senior commanders as well as White House and State Department officials. A former government official involved in American hostage issues said he had never heard of giving a family such access and questioned whether sensitive information could have been conveyed to Robert and Jani Bergdahl and somehow leaked out. A family spokesman said he knows of no such breach. Soon after Sgt. Bergdahl went missing in

Ted Cruz has not made himself a popular man in Washington, D.C. The Texas Republican would argue that’s the point. But even for a Senator—an elected office with the backing of an entire state—ticking off powerful people can have consequences. (Snip) A week after his election to the Senate in 2012, Cruz was named vice chair of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, which works to elect Republicans to the Senate. But he subsequently refused to endorse incumbent senators, or help them in their races, a fact that many Tea Party insurgents have seized upon. He hasn’t set foot in the NRSC in more than a year, sources say.

Senator Dianne Feinstein sharply contradicted Obama administration claims about the details of the deal in which five Taliban detainees were exchanged for captured Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. Feinstein, a California Democrat who chairs the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, joins a chorus of Republicans, veterans, families of deceased soldiers, and other critics of both the deal for Bergdahl’s release and the administration’s failure to give advance notice to Congress before releasing detainees from Guantanamo Bay, as required by a 2013 law. In an appearance on CBS’ Face the Nation, Feinstein noted that after the release of the five Taliban officials

WASHINGTON — Last year, the husband of Iowa Republican state Sen. Joni Ernst, her party’s nominee for Senate made his opinion known about Hillary Clinton on Facebook. “Truly more of a hag now than when she was 1st Lady!” Gail Ernst wrote, sharing a Benghazi-related image. Gail Ernst mostly uses his Facebook page — which is public — to rally supporters to his wife’s Senate bid. Gail Ernst is a prominent surrogate for his wife, making official campaign appearances touted on Joni Ernst’s official campaign Facebook page. He often comments on posts on his wife’s campaign Facebook page from his own.

Since its first introduction into our lexicon, the definition of the word metrosexual has changed several times. At first it was used to describe young, urban males who were more interested in fashion, grooming and appearance than the traditional masculine male. Sexuality ran the gamut from officially gay, straight or bisexual. Then an article in Salon.com by Mark Simpson narrowed it down to the following: "He might be officially gay, straight or bisexual, but this is utterly immaterial because he has clearly taken himself as his own love object and pleasure as his sexual preference." In his book Male Impersonators,
