New Census Questions Will Change
ObamaCare Findings; Networks Ignore

Newsbusters, by Matt Hadro

Posted By:JoniTx, 4/16/2014 9:14:05 AM

New Census questions will change the findings on the impact of ObamaCare, reported the New York Times on Tuesday. The broadcast networks ignored this new report on the Tuesday evening newscasts, however. In fact, a census official told the Times they "are expecting much lower numbers" of the uninsured "just because of the questions and how they are asked." As the Times stated, the Census Bureau "is changing its annual survey so thoroughly that it will be difficult to measure the effects of President Obama’s health care law in the next report, due this fall, census officials said."

ARLINGTON, Texas— It´s the end of the trail for country music king George Strait, who will wrap up his final tour Saturday with a star-filled show at the lavish home of the Dallas Cowboys in his home state of Texas. The show brings an end to nearly 40 years on the road for Strait, which started in 1975 with the Ace in the Hole Band. And he plans to do it in style, inviting several of country´s biggest stars, including Miranda Lambert, Jason Aldean and Eric Church. Yet the focus will still be on the 62-year-old singer, who is beloved in country music with a career decades longer than most.

ROANOAKE, Va.- Former presidential adviser and lobbyist Ed Gillespie won the Republican nomination at the state party convention Saturday and will face Democratic Sen. Mark Warner in the general election in November. Gillespie won the nod at the Virginia Republican Convention in Roanoke to challenge Warner, a former Virginia governor and early favorite in the race. Gillespie is the former Republican National Committee chairman and a former adviser to President George W. Bush and Mitt Romney´s 2012 presidential campaign. A onetime aide on Capitol Hill, Gillespie also has made millions as a corporate lobbyist.

Hailey, Idaho - (Video) The Berdaghl family made its home in a remote, wind-whipped Idaho valley to keep the world at a certain distance.

In a moving tribute to a woman she called “one of the greatest spirits our world has ever known”, first lady Michelle Obama on Saturday thanked the writer Maya Angelou for empowering young black women like herself with her clever, sassy words. Angelou died last month at the age of 86. (Snip) Obama said Angelou taught all women that self-worth “has nothing to do with what the world might say”. “For me,” she said, “that was the power of Maya Angelou’s words, words so powerful they carried a little black girl from the south side of Chicago all the way

(Video) The federal government on Friday began sending hundreds of unaccompanied children caught crossing the border illegally in Texas to a holding center in Nogales, Ariz., further straining relations with Gov. Jan Brewer, who was already angry over the recent release of hundreds of undocumented families at bus stations in Phoenix and Tucson. Brewer said she learned Friday that 432 children were transported to a holding facility in Nogales and that an additional 732 children would be brought there today and Sunday.

At a memorial for Maya Angelou today, Bill Clinton described the award-winning writer and poet ´who was always paying attention´. The former President was one of several high-profile friends of Angelou who paid tribute to the writer at Wake Forest University in North Carolina, where she had taught for 30 years. Chat show host and close friend Oprah told those at the service Angelou had been her ´spiritual queen godmother ... and ultimate teacher´. Angelou, who died at her Winston-Salem home at the age of 86 last month, was known throughout the world as a literary pioneer and champion of

Phoenix - Angry about the federal government sending from Texas to Arizona immigrants who are in the country illegally, Arizona officials say they are rushing federal supplies to a makeshift holding center in the southern part of the state that´s housing hundreds of migrant children and is running low on the basics. Gov. Jan Brewer´s spokesman, Andrew Wilder, said Friday that conditions at the holding center are so dire that federal officials have asked the state to immediately ship the medical supplies to the center in Nogales.

Obama: ‘My Government’ Didn’t Need
Congressional Approval For Bergdahl Deal
Independent Journal Review, by Mike Miller    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 6/7/2014 11:22:48 AM     Post Reply
During an interview with NBC’s Brian Williams, Barack Obama claims – incredibly – that “my government” acted ‘unanimously” in its decision to trade five Taliban commanders for Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. It was a “unanimous decision” by “my government.” “I make no apologies for it.” But surely, he meant to say “my administration,” right? Don’t bet on it. The deal was overwhelmingly rejected in 2012 by members of Congress, Pentagon officials and the intel community. That doesn’t suggest that the American people’s government was “unanimous”

The story of Bowe Bergdahl is also the story of six soldiers killed seeking a man who may have intentionally walked into the arms of the Taliban. Krisa Murphrey, whose brother, Staff Sergeant Michael Murphrey, was killed on a mission reports have linked to the Bergdahl search, tells Breitbart News the swap was "ridiculous." In an exclusive interview with Breitbart News, Murphrey expresses anger over the Obama administration´s decision to release five high-ranking Taliban officials to free Bergdahl. "I felt a little angry about the whole exchange," she explains. "I do feel like eventually at some point Bergdahl should have

   

 



 
NBC´s Williams Skips V.A. Scandal

Brian Williams glossed over the V.A. scandal during his interview of President Obama on Friday´s NBC Nightly News. Williams did devote time to the ongoing controversy surrounding the release of senior Taliban leaders in exchange for Bowe Bergdahl – specifically the White House failing to inform Congress 30 days before the Islamists were let go from Guantanamo Bay, as required by federal law. However, the anchor didn´t mention that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid revealed that he was informed of the trade for Bergdahl on May 27, 2014 – a day before it actually happened. Williams also forwarded the President´s

The Bergdahl Exchange --
a Wider Legal View
American Thinker, by Louis Rene Beres    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 6/7/2014 8:07:45 AM     Post Reply
A number of plainly sensible arguments have already been raised in opposition to President Obama´s exchange of an American military prisoner for assorted Taliban terrorists. Wherever these arguments have centered on the expected creation of additional and possibly new risks to Americans, they have been compelling, even unassailable. Now, however, it should also be pointed out that there are certain vital and sometimes intersecting issues of U.S. law and international law involved in this matter. These specifically jurisprudential issues warrant immediate and informed clarification. First, however, a non-legal reaction. It goes without saying that any reassurances offered by the government

U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl at one point during his captivity converted to Islam, fraternized openly with his captors and declared himself a "mujahid," or warrior for Islam, according to secret documents prepared on the basis of a purported eyewitness account and obtained by Fox News. The reports indicate that Bergdahl´s relations with his Haqqani captors morphed over time, from periods of hostility, where he was treated very much like a hostage, to periods where, as one source told Fox News, "he became much more of an accepted fellow" than is popularly understood. He even reportedly was allowed to carry a

President Obama was caught on camera chewing gum during the D-Day ceremonies in France as Queen Elizabeth II was welcomed, and Twitter feeds worldwide exploded with criticism. “Obama and his chewing-gum. Classy” one French user tweeted sarcastically. “Not very elegant, the Obama attitude in the middle of the ceremony,” another user said, while yet another added, “Is there anyone who will ask Barack Obama to stop chewing on his gum like a cowboy?” The words “shameful” and “vulgar” were thrown around as social media networks lit up with outrage at Mr. Obama’s display. “Obama do you want a Coke too while chewing gum while

Obama administration officials told a gathering of all 100 U.S. Senators on Wednesday that they were kept in the dark about Saturday´s prisoner swap because the Taliban warned that they would kill Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl if any information about the plan leaked to the public. But Georgia Sen. Saxby Chambliss, the senior Republican member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, says he and California Sen. Dianne Feinstein, his Democratic counterpart on the committee, were told ´months and months´ in advance when the Obama administration was planning to kill Osama bin Laden. ´It was like they didn´t trust Dianne and me,´ Chambliss said

Late in the afternoon of Saturday, May 31, Barack Obama strode confidently to a lectern in the White House Rose Garden flanked by the parents of Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl, a soldier who had gone missing from his platoon in the mountains of Afghanistan in June 2009. “This morning I called Bob and Jani Bergdahl and told them that after nearly five years in captivity, their son, Bowe, is coming home,” Obama said. The president thanked service members who “recovered Sergeant Bergdahl and brought him safely out of harm’s way.” Obama also expressed gratitude to the diplomats who had handled the case,

U.S. National Security Adviser Susan Rice passed up a golden opportunity on Friday to walk back her Sunday television praise for accused Army deserter Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl as an American who had ´served the United States with honor and distinction.´ Rice waded once again into controversy with comments on ABC´s Sunday morning news program ´This Week,´ setting off an immediate firestorm among Americans who had already learned that Bergdahl was no ordinary hostage overseas. Taliban forces in Afghanistan turned him over to U.S. Special Forces on Saturday after nearly five years of captivity following his voluntary walk-off from his base

Six of the men Bowe Bergdahl served with sat down with Megyn Kelly on Thursday, and Kelly asked them how they feel about the White House saying the attacks on Bergdahl are just “swift boating” and are motivated by partisanship. All six of them insisted their criticisms are not based in partisan politics, but in fact. All of them agreed that “the truth needs to come out, he’s not a hero,” and that it was “hard to watch” him get such a glowing welcoming in the Rose Garden, given they believe Bergdahl abandoned them to seek out the Taliban and

The Obama White House genuinely believed the release of the American soldier who disappeared in 2009 in Afghanistan would provide a triumphant moment for the president and a moment for national unity. Otherwise, there would have been no Rose Garden celebration featuring the president and Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl’s parents. Some in the White House surely saw the Rose Garden bit as a chance to play rope-a-dope with their political adversaries after weeks of getting beaten up over the Veterans Administration scandal. They might have calculated that a knee-jerk Republican offensive against the deal — Bergdahl in trade for five

First she consciously uncoupled from her husband. Then she said being criticized on social media was just like war. Now Gwyneth Paltrow has somehow trumped both! The Oscar winning actor and mother of two believes bad vibes can bum out water. Yes, we’re talking H2O. “I am fascinated by the growing science behind the energy of consciousness and its effects on matter,” she wrote on her website GOOP. “I have long had Dr Emoto's coffee table book on how negativity changes the structure of water, how the molecules behave differently depending on the words or music being expressed around it.”

Hi, everybody. This is commencement season, a time for graduates and their families to celebrate one of the greatest achievements of a young person’s life. But for many graduates, it also means feeling trapped by a whole lot of student loan debt. And we’ve got to do more to lift that burden. See, in a 21st century economy, the surest pathway into the middle class is some form of higher education. The unemployment rate for workers with a bachelor’s degree is just 3.3 percent — about half what it is for high school graduates. The typical graduate of a four-year college earns $15,000 more per year than someone with just a high school degree.

One evening in March, during a visit to Italy, President Obama asked the U.S. ambassador to round up a bunch of—and I quote—“interesting Italians” for a dinner at the ambassadorial residence. The history of the property, the Villa Taverna, goes as far back as the tenth century. Its art collection includes Roman sarcophagi and centuries-old imperial busts. The menu that evening included a variety of pastas, and wines from Tuscany and the regions around Venice. Dinner lasted four hours. In this sumptuous and Baroque setting, amid these beautiful artifacts of long-gone civilizations, enjoying the finest foods and most delicate wines, President
