Utah governor signs bill giving fathers
new rights in adoption cases

Fox News, by Faith Mangan & Alicia Acuna

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 4/4/2014 4:37:22 AM

Utah Gov. Gary Herbert has signed off on a partial fix to the state´s controversial adoption law, in a bid to close a loophole allowing women from other states to give birth and put their babies up for adoption in Utah -- without the knowledge or consent of the biological father. The bill, Adoption Act Amendments, was sponsored by Utah state Sen. Todd Weiler. He told Fox News: "It sends a strong message that Utah respects fathers´ rights and will not allow its laws to be used to perpetuate fraudulent adoptions." The bill would require a biological mother to live in Utah

It´s so strange seeing any law enacted to give, rather than take away rights from fathers. The woman arguing against the law essentially says this issue happens so rarely that there´s no need for a law. She further argues that most women are honest. Besides women are allowed to abort their babies without the father´s consent. Giving away a baby for adoption should be a woman´s right too.

Is the father fully supporting the child? If not, why not and why would he have a say? It´s not my responsibility to feed and clothe his children when he doesn´t care enough for them to do it himself. It costs nothing to spread your seed around.

Hillary Clinton Says She’s Donated
All University Speaking Fees
ABC News, by Liz Kreutz    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 7/4/2014 2:41:35 PM     Post Reply
Hillary Clinton continued to justify her high-dollar speaking fees on Friday, telling ABC News’ Ann Compton that all of the money she’s made from colleges over the past year and a half has been donated to her family’s foundation. “All of the fees have been donated to the Clinton Foundation for it to continue its life-changing and life-saving work. So it goes from a foundation at a university to another foundation,” Clinton said when asked about the criticism she and her husband have faced recently for their wealth. Hillary Clinton reportedly makes roughly $200,000 for each speaking engagement. And recent reports show

In Honor Of July 4th: Top 9

Americans aren’t just innovators. We’re perfectionists. In honor of the nation’s 238th birthday, here are the top nine things Americans have perfected. 1. Waffles and pancakes: Everyone thanks Belgium for their delicious waffles, and by all means, we Americans commend them. But half of the wonder of waffles is the glorious mess you can put on top of it. It’s not just syrup anymore. You can thank Americans for the massive globs of heavy whipping cream, chocolate chips, bananas, walnuts, cheesecake filling and coconut shreds. We’re not fat. We’re happy.(Snip for photo) 2.

In 1996, the government blew things up on the National Mall to protect your kids. And you, really. Anyone who might be using fireworks or be near someone using fireworks or who might go outside at all ever when someone in the universe is using any type of fireworks. You really can never be too careful. It was two days before the Fourth, and the Consumer Product Safety Commission trekked out to the base of the Washington Monument to blow things up. Craig Winneker tweeted the full video earlier this morning, and it´s at the bottom of this article. But we

Tyranny of the Majority Leader

Patience and reliability are the defining characteristics of successful leadership in the Senate. Good Senate majority leaders work through the rules of the Senate, which protect minority rights, to find a way to please a majority (or possibly a supermajority) of senators and move legislation and nominations to passage. They keep their commitments to open debate, even when their partisan colleagues would prefer to use simple majority power to crush the minority and avoid tough votes or compromises. The Senate once prided itself on being “the world’s greatest deliberative body.” That it no longer is. According to the Congressional Research Service,

Thanks to the freedoms guaranteed in our founding documents, we enjoy the one of the highest standards of living in the world, we boast the number one economy, and few of us ever have to worry about where our next meal is coming from. Clearly, we have it great as Americans. To further illustrate how good we really have it, here is a list of 20 things happening in the world that will give you perspective on why we should be especially grateful to live in the land of opportunity and freedom. 1.

I. Warning: The Latrines Are Kinda Full It´s April in the Nevada desert, not even 11 A.M., and the heat is already physical, like something you could lean on. To those not yet accustomed to the republic, like myself, there´s a feeling of unreality to it. Even the view from up here, looking north: blue-green river shading to red-orange mesa shading to gray-red mountain, like a Looney Tunes cartoon.

If you’re still on social media after yesterday, you’re profoundly masochistic, in need of a stiff drink, or both. Take this moment to examine your Twitter timeline for evidence of the following words: “slippery slope,” “minefield,” “ban,” and “birth control.” Use them as a drinking game and get yourself most of the way into a bottle of Smirnoff. If there were ever an excuse for day-drinking, it’s the amateur constitutional lawyering happening across the Internet. Let’s not mention the Oval Office, where the “constitutional lawyer” in residence stridently disagrees with the professional justices on the Supreme Court. What has happened

A Disregarded Request From a Beloved
Senator Shakes Up Hawaii’s Primary

WAIANAE, Hawaii — For over 50 years, Senator Daniel K. Inouye, a Democrat, was the closest thing modern-day Hawaii had to political royalty: He began representing the state in Washington two years before its most famous citizen was even born. As he lay dying in 2012, Mr. Inouye asked the governor, Neil Abercrombie, to appoint Representative Colleen Hanabusa, a protégée and the daughter of a gas station owner here, to fill his seat. But Mr. Abercrombie, a fellow Democrat, disregarded that deathbed request, choosing his lieutenant governor, Brian Schatz, as the interim senator instead. Eighteen months later, the decision to defy one

Hillary down in the dumps: Is

During a recent break in her national book tour, Hillary Clinton sat at her kitchen table in Chappaqua, N.Y., rubbing her forehead. She had been experiencing splitting headaches and was finding it increasingly difficult to hide the throbbing pain in her head while doing television interviews. ABC News’ Diane Sawyer and NPR´s Terry Gross had asked Hillary some tough questions—about her wealth and her position on gay marriage—and Hillary had badly bungled her answers. What’s more, sales of Hillary’s memoir, “Hard Choices,” for which she was paid a reported $14 million, were alarmingly disappointing. After selling 80,000 copies the first week,

Doctors´ group says annual pelvic

Each year, millions of women in the U.S. head to their gynecologist for an annual check-up. While it may not be the most pleasant experience in the world, most consider the prodding and mild discomfort of a routine pelvic exam to be an essential part of preventive health care. But now the American College of Physicians (ACP) is challenging the need for this practice. On Monday the group published a new set of guidelines that recommends against annual pelvic exams for healthy, non-pregnant women. After a review of studies conducted between 1946 and 2014, the ACP concluded that the risks posed by

Patriotism as pest control:
Florida’s weird fireworks law

TALLAHASSEE — The coming of Independence Day means fireworks season — and the beginning of the institutionalized charade behind their sale in Florida. In the Sunshine State, one does not buy a bottle rocket for recreation; one buys it to scare birds away from farms and fisheries. That’s right: Explosives for pest control. Technically speaking, consumer fireworks are illegal in Florida. But nearly 60 years ago, state lawmakers passed an exception — now the only one of its kind in the United States — for fireworks purchases by farms and fish hatcheries. That’s how vendors, including those in the ubiquitous tents that spring up

Maybe we’ve been conned. There’s a growing recognition that Barack Obama is an incompetent poser, working out of his depth, and his administration is the gang that can’t shoot straight. There’s a lot of evidence to support that belief. Everything he touches becomes a bloody mess, like crushed bones and bits of flesh caught in the tracks of a tank slicing through a rank of soldiers (or civilians). Iraq, Syria, Egypt — all gone, as prospects for countries with a prosperous and democratic future. The “reset” with Russia, meant to ensure that America and the replacement republic of the old

The Vancouver (British Columbia) Board of Education has approved a sweeping new policy for accommodating lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, two-spirit, queer, questioning and “all sexual and gender identities,” including the creation of three pronouns, replacing masculine and feminine with xe, xem and xyr (pronounced ze, zem and zur). Two spirit is an Aboriginal term which means having both feminine and masculine spirits. It´s not limited to gender expression or sexuality, but encompasses them both while incorporating a spiritual element. It´s a standalone identity, not an Aboriginal term for gay lesbian.

President Obama has, except on fleeting occasions, routinely disdained the customary Oval Office language of compromise and coalition-building for the low arts of sophistry and belittlement. That was to be expected, given his background as a Chicago community organizer and product of that city´s corrupt Democrat political machine. But Obama has far exceeded dismal expectations. No previous American president employed the systematic distortion of fact and mendacious characterization of opponents that have typified Obama´s presidency. His "so sue me" speech last week is a classic illustration of the community organizer practicing Saul Alinsky´s 13th rule: “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize

A street reporter found Rivers Thursday, and, in light of her officiating a gay wedding Monday, asked if she predicted the United States would have its woman president or a gay president first. “Well, we already have it with Obama, so let’s just calm down.” “You know Michelle [Obama] is a tranny,” she added. When asked for clarification she was more politically correct: ”A transgender.” Watch the whole thing here:

Climate alarmism is "the biggest fraud in the field of science" and the 97% consensus claim is nonsensical, Apollo 7 astronaut Walter Cunningham tells MRCTV in a preview of his presentation at the upcoming Heartland Institute climate conference, July 7-9. "Since about 2000, I looked farther and farther into it," Col. Cunningham (USMC, Ret.) tells MRCTV in an exclusive interview. "I found that not one of the claims that the alarmists were making out there had any bearings, whatsoever. And, so, it was kind of a no-brainer to come to the conclusion."

Sources inside MSNBC say former White House Spokesman Jay Carney, who recently resigned from his post at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, will likely be headed to MSNBC. Carney is in talks for a contributor position. If it happens, Carney would follow in the natural footsteps of a few other aides to President Obama who were welcomed into the MSNBC family upon leaving their jobs. The last White House Press Secretary, Robert Gibbs, became an MSNBC contributor in May, 2013, while David Axelrod, a top aide to Obama, became one in February 2013.

The United States added a stunning 288,000 jobs last month, sending the unemployment rate down to 6.1 percent and the Dow Jones Industrial Average shooting over 17,000 for the first time. June’s job numbers marked the fifth straight month of job gains over 200,000, the best stretch since the 1990s tech boom. A Bloomberg survey of economists expected an increase of 215,000 jobs in June. The unemployment rate dropped .2 percent to 6.1, the lowest since September 2008. May’s job report was also revised upward, showing 224,000 jobs added. The numbers follow strong reports for the Bay State last month, with

The headline of today’s jobs report, that 288,000 jobs were created in the last month, is positive. At least, it is better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick. However, as with most economic reports these days, there is a veneer of good news — but when you look closer, the White House is using the positive headlines to hide the growing deterioration of the American workforce. I’m sure by now people are tired of reading about the bad news, and I’ll admit I am weary of having to blow the whistle and expose the truth every

As the rest of America rings in Independence Day, the Obama family have yet another reason to celebrate: Malia Obama´s sweet 16th birthday. The First Daughter, who has recently been in California doing a TV production internship, was just ten years old when her father was first elected President of the United States. And over the past six years, the country has witnessed her grow up into a tall, stylish and mature teen, giving her parents plenty of reasons to be proud.

NEW YORK — Hillary Rodham Clinton´s book "Hard Choices" is on track to be one of the year´s top nonfiction books despite another slip in sales.
