BUFORD, Ga. -- Candidates in Georgia´s fiercely contested Republican Senate race sought votes in one of the most solidly Republican areas in the country on Saturday, just days ahead of a primary that could help determine congressional control. Reps. Paul Broun and Jack Kingston along with Georgia´s former Secretary of State Karen Handel worked the crowd at a barbecue and fundraiser hosted by Gov. Nathan Deal in northern Georgia. The GOP stronghold is key to winning Tuesday´s primary. Republicans need to gain just six seats to claim a majority in the Senate. They cannot afford to lose the Georgia seat, which opened

´Operation American Spring´ Is Still
Waiting for Its Millions of Patriots
Atlantic Wire, by Abby Ohlheiser    Original Article

Operation American Spring, the mass D.C. rally aiming to force several top government officials — including the president — to resign, spent a portion of its first day at the capital assuring people tuning into its livestream that more people are on the way. The protest´s lead organizer, Harry Riley, promised 10 million to 30 million people would show up for his event; Friday´s crowd appeared to be in the dozens to hundreds. "Where you at?" one guy yelled at the live stream, adding, "We´re HERE." A woman stepped up to the camera and assured viewers that a number of rally

On the front page of Sunday’s New York Times was a hysterical article charging the New York Police Department with trampling Muslim civil rights by trying to recruit Muslims who had been arrested on other charges to be informants. The headline screamed “New York Police Recruit Muslims as Informants on Terrorism” and proceeded to “expose” the “profiling of Muslims” by the NYPD to serve as potential informants from within their communities. Reporter Joseph Goldstein interviewed people who had been questioned by police and found the exercise “coercive.” NYPD records show “that religion had become a normal topic of police inquiry in

Obamacare versus the Hippocratic Oath
Washington Times, by John Ammon    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 5/17/2014 5:06:33 AM     Post Reply
When I became a doctor almost 40 years ago, I swore to uphold the Hippocratic Oath — “do no harm.” Never has this solemn promise been more difficult to keep. Today, Obamacare is the greatest threat to a doctor’s ability to help patients — and I see it impacting and diminishing the quality of American health care both now and into the distant future. I recalled my oath when President Obama declared recently that Obamacare is working. He pointed to the law’s 8 million sign-ups as proof. Yet this number is deceptive — it says nothing about whether the law has

WASHINGTON — On May 2, a week after peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians fell apart, senior American diplomats gave an interview to a prominent Israeli journalist in which they said Israel’s aggressive pursuit of new Jewish settlements had sabotaged the negotiations. While the officials were not identified, one was widely assumed to be Martin S. Indyk, the Obama administration’s peace envoy. But it might as well have been President Obama himself, a senior administration official said, since the White House cleared the interview and the critical remarks faithfully reflect the president’s own views. Mr. Obama,

Dem poll: Half of young Obama voters

Behold, yet another data point indicating that Obama’s 2012 re-election coalition is splintering or flat-out apathetic heading into the midterm cycle, via the Washington Post:(Snip for graph)As this graph illustrates, less than a third of Obama’s 2012 Millennial voters say they’ll “definitely” vote for Democrats this fall. Almost as many have abandoned the party label completely, either by shifting to independent status or by supporting Republicans. When this Democratic pollster tabulates the data, he finds that only half of all the young Obama voters surveyed will definitely, probably, or maybe vote for Democrats in the midterms.

The top official for veterans health care has resigned amid a firestorm over long appointment waits, treatment delays and falsified records at VA hospitals. Veterans Secretary Eric Shinseki says he has accepted the resignation of Robert Petzel, undersecretary for health care at the VA. It comes the day after both men were grilled by the Senate Committee on Veterans Affairs. Whistleblowers say there were efforts to cover up the deaths of up to 40 veterans while they were awaiting appointments at the department´s giant medical center in Phoenix. Shinseki says most vets are satisfied with the quality of care they get, but more

Operation American Spring falls flat:
‘This is very disappointing,’ Texan says

Operation American Spring, billed as a Friday morning multi-million patriot march on Washington, D.C., to oust leadership from the nation’s capital — from President Obama to House Speaker John Boeher — has proven woefully below expectations. “It’s a very dismal turnout,” said Jackie Milton, 61, a Jacksboro, Texas, resident and the head of Texans for Operation American Spring, to The Washington Times. He said hopes were high when he arrived in Alexandria, Va., a day or so ago and found motels and hotels were sold out for 30 miles around. But weather’s dampened turnout a bit, he said. “We were getting over two

Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity May Not Exist

In 2011, Peter Gibson, a professor of gastroenterology at Monash University and director of the GI Unit at The Alfred Hospital in Melbourne, Australia, published a study that found gluten, a protein found in grains like wheat, rye, and barley, to cause gastrointestinal distress in patients without celiac disease, an autoimmune disorder unequivocally triggered by gluten. Double-blinded, randomized, and placebo-controlled, the experiment was one of the strongest pieces of evidence to date that non-celiac gluten sensitivity (NCGS), more commonly known as gluten intolerance, is a genuine condition. By extension, the study also lent credibility to the meteoric rise of the gluten-free

Jill Abramson lost her job, but so far she´s winning the press relations war. In the 24 hours since she was fired from The New York Times, her downfall has become a flashpoint for a national conversation about gender and inequality that is all but eclipsing what sources cite as the reasons for her termination. The swift passage of this narrative to conventional wisdom has elevated Abramson´s standing while highlighting the Times´ inability to manage its own abrupt transfer of power, which caught the entire media industry off guard on Wednesday. Now, the historic appointment of the Times first-ever African-American executive editor has

Chelsea Clinton’s In-Law Marjorie Margolies
Skips Own Fundraiser With Hillary
ABC News, by Betsy Klein    Original Article

Tonight’s campaign fundraiser for Pennsylvania’s 13th Congressional District hopeful Marjorie Margolies is just like any campaign fundraiser featuring an appearance by Hillary Clinton. Except the candidate, who happens to be Chelsea Clinton’s mother-in-law, won’t be there. Margolies’ absence from her own fundraiser might surprise those who had hoped to catch a glimpse of the once and hopes-to-be-future congresswoman. The thousand-dollar-a-head event’s invitation requested “the pleasure of your company at an event for Marjorie Margolies with Special Guest Hillary Rodham Clinton,” but never mentioned that Margolies would not be in attendance. Campaign aide Dylan McGarry confirmed to ABC News that Margolies will not be

Segregation by force of law is no longer legally acceptable in America, but de facto segregation still plagues our schools and neighborhoods, First Lady Michelle Obama told a group of graduating students Friday night. The First Lady was expected to use the speech to celebrate about diversity in America. Instead, she took racism head on, telling the Topeka, Kansas, seniors, ´by some measures, our schools are as segregated as they were back when Dr. King gave his final speech.´ ´And even in schools that seem integrated according to the numbers, when you look a little closer, you see students from different

Attorney General Eric Holder said on Saturday while public utterances of bigotry are roundly condemned in the United States racial discrimination persists in more subtle ways. (Snip) He said the new battleground against discrimination should focus on policies and laws that appear race-neutral but in practice impede equal opportunity. "This is the work that truly matters - because policies that disenfranchise specific groups are more pernicious than hateful rants," Holder told the graduates at Morgan State, a historically black college. He cited disciplinary practices in schools that punish black males at three times the rate of their white peers. He

When former President George W. Bush was a no-show at the s 9/11 Memorial Museum dedication in New York City, some feared the snub was a political statement or a poke at President Barack Obama. But it turns out the Texan had a prior engagement with more than a dozen of America´s bravest military heroes. He was in Bentonville, Arkansas on Thursday, receiving the Patriot Award, the Congressional Medal of Honor Society´s highest recognition.

New York — Swimming pools are a much greater danger to black children and teens than they are to other kids, a new government study shows. Black children ages 5 to 19 drown in swimming pools at a rate more than five times that of white children, the research found. That suggests a lot of blacks are not learning to swim, said the lead author, Dr. Julie Gilchrist of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Swimming is a life-saving skill, not just another sport, she said. The racial differences were smaller for drownings in lakes or other bodies of

The main squeeze of openly gay NFL player Michael Sam comes from a family of Midwest mobsters. Vito Cammisano, the hunky 23-year-old former collegiate swimmer, is the grandson of the late Mafia boss William (Willie the Rat) Cammisano. His father, Gerlarmo (Jerry) Cammisano, 60, followed in the family’s shady business and ended up doing 14 months in prison for running a Kansas City-based gambling ring, according to records. But on Saturday the Cammisano name became part of a feel-good sports story of the year when Sam became the first openly gay player drafted by an NFL team as Vito proudly stood at his

Rep.

Ever since she emerged on the US national political scene, the mainstream media and Hollywood have treated Hillary Clinton as if she’s the be all end all of womanhood. That she is the world’s smartest woman. That her ascension to the ultimate seat of power, the presidency of the United States, was nothing less than inevitable. We’re hearing it again now — that Hillary Clinton is a shoo-in for the presidency in 2016. She’s unbeatable. No Democrat stands a chance against her if she decides to run. The Republicans shouldn’t even bother to field a candidate. Of course, they were

At the New York Times building in Manhattan two days ago, the entire staff was assembled at a meeting in front of publisher Arthur Sulzberger Jr. The ashen-faced Sulzberger then made the announcement that would shake the underpinnings loose from the surface of our world: Jill Abramson, the executive editor of the Times, had been fired. The news settled slowly over America’s journalists, creeping into their bones and leaving them in a state of flabbergasted paralysis. For years they’d covered the Great Recession in which 8.7 million people lost their jobs. Now it had finally happened to someone important. Then the paralysis

A prominent New York ophthalmologist believes that a special pair of glasses worn by former former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton are the type used to treat the double vision sometimes caused by severe head trauma. In an interview with Fox News, Dr. Marc Werner said the glasses had a Fresnel prism. ´In order to see one object, your eyes need to be pointed in the same direction. If your eyes are misaligned, one way to optically align them is to put a prism ... on your glasses,´ he said. Karl Rove recently called Clinton's health into question as he speculated on her time in the hospital in December 2012. She was reportedly fighting a
