Obama expands government
benefits for gay couples

Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 6/20/2014 11:04:16 PM

WASHINGTON- A year after the Supreme Court struck down a law barring federal recognition of gay marriages, the Obama administration granted an array of new benefits Friday to same-sex couples, including those who live in states where gay marriage is against the law. The new measures range from Social Security and veterans benefits to work leave for caring for sick spouses. They are part of President Barack Obama´s efforts to expand whatever protections he can offer to gays and lesbians even though more than half of the states don´t recognize gay marriage. That effort has been confounded by laws that

What is Obama´s fixation with gays and lesbians? If he devoted half as much time on issues such as the economy, we would be in much better shape. Instead, all we hear is more gay orders.

i was at the Twins-Sox game tonight.. in the sixth inning they have a Kiss Cam that focuses on boyfriend/girlfriend, husband/wife and they then give each other a kiss to the applause of the crowd..
TONIGHT.. a little different.. showed two hands with rings on fingers and moved up to show two lesbians..
not sure how this went over with the fans THAT BROUGHT KIDS TO THE GAME..
there were quite a few gasps of disgust..
well.. i guess the Twins know their fans.. just like the late Boy Scouts..

Obama tries to soften up
press with ice cream
The Hill (Washington DC), by Justin Sink    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 6/26/2014 9:34:03 PM     Post Reply
President Obama looked to curry favor with his traveling press corps on Thursday, offering to treat reporters to an ice cream cone during a stop at a Minnesota dessert parlor. "Press, you guys want some? On me. No? Is that unethical?” Obama asked reporters who accompanied him to the Grand Ole Creamery, a Twin Cities chain. “I’m trying to soften you up.” Obama told employees of the shop that one of his first jobs was scooping ice cream at Baskin Robbins — eliciting a groan from the workers at the rival parlor. “No, the point is that my first job

When you step foot into the control room at the U.S. Border Patrol station in McAllen, Texas, the first thing that hits you is the smell. (Photo) Hovering somewhere between urine and unwashed humanity, the air is thick and hot. The sound inside the circular, glass-enclosed control room is like that of a beehive, humming with the noise of hundreds of voices mixed with buzzers and footsteps. “This is where we do the processing,” the border patrol agent tells us. The border patrol officer gestures to a series of white, cinderblock rooms that form a ring around the enclosed control

Rev. Jesse Jackson praised the “beauty” of Sen. Thad Cochran’s (R-MS) victory over “Confederate” Chris McDaniel in an interview on CNN’s “Wolf” on Thursday. In a discussion on the progress of civil rights Jackson said that one of the problems he sees in America is the fact that “the 11 southern states have gone Confederate again and of the McDaniel variety where a state like South Carolina one-fourth poverty, rejects $12 billion in Medicaid money, a state like Mississippi rejects $10 billion in Medicaid money for the poorest people in America.” His solution to this problem is to “move towards the

MINNEAPOLIS — President Barack Obama pledged the federal government´s help Thursday in recovery after massive flooding hit many parts of Minnesota this month, telling a town hall audience near the roaring Minnehaha Falls that they´ll have a strong partner when they know how severe the damage is. Obama said he was briefed by Gov. Mark Dayton on high waters that have swamped farm fields, washed out roads and flooded towns and homes in the past week. "I told the governor that we will be there as we get some clarity about the damage and what needs to be done," Obama

Ordinarily, President Obama’s days are planned out to the smallest detail. But for his two-day excursion to Minnesota this week, the president boasted that he’s got little in the way of a formal agenda, has few firm plans, and warned Secret Service that he’s feeling “super loose” and could end up doing any number of things. “I don’t know. I’m just going to make it up as I go along,” Mr. Obama said during a town-hall meeting at Minneapolis’ Minnehaha Park, one of the few planned activities during his two-day stay in the Twin Cities. “I’m like a caged bear,

Things got heated on the set of The View Thursday when Whoopi Goldberg brought up comments comedian Russell Brand made attacking Fox News yesterday. TheBlaze’s Will Cain, who was sitting in as guest host, went after Brand’s “inappropriate” words, and got some pushback from Goldberg and Sherri Shepherd. “I think it’s part of this whole trend we have,” Cain said. “We elevate words to the most harmful thing in society.

Obama asks for authorization

Washington Post, by Karen DeYoung    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 6/26/2014 3:45:41 PM     Post Reply
The Obama administration asked Congress Thursday to authorize direct U.S. military training and equipment for Syrian opposition fighters, a move that could significantly escalate U.S. involvement in Syria’s civil war. Money for the program would total $500 million and would expand a current CIA covert training program. It is included in a $60 billion request for Overseas Contingency Operations, or OCO, added to the fiscal year 2015 Defense Department budget. Details of the OCO budget had been withheld from the budget request that Congress has been considering. The administration has said repeatedly in recent weeks that it was

President Obama’s team suffered their twelfth unanimous defeat at the Supreme Court in the legal challenge to the so-called recess appointments made when Congress was not actually in recess, a string of defeats that only represents “the tip of the iceberg,” according to Senator Mike Lee (R., Utah). “Not every case in which the president has exceeded his authority has made it all the way to the Supreme Court,” Lee, a former law clerk to Justice Samuel Alito, told National Review Online. “The fact that his track record is as bad as it is in the Supreme Court . . . is yet another indication of the fact that we’ve got a president who is playing fast

RECIFE, Brazil- The U.S. may have lost a game Thursday, but it won both a huge amount of respect and a spot in the World Cup’s second round despite dropping a 1-0 decision to Germany in the group-play final for both teams. In a game marred by rain and a soggy turf, the U.S. stayed close enough to the world’s No. 2 team to finish second in its group, allowing it to advance to meet the winner of Group H in the knockout round at 3 p.m. (Chicago time) Tuesday in Salvador. The final Group H standings were to be determined in Thursday’s late games between South Korea and Belgium and Algeria and Russia.

When will Supreme Court Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Stephen Breyer retire? It’s a question that has surfaced as the Supreme Court term has come to an end in recent years. But anticipation about the future plans of Ginsburg and Breyer has taken on a new sense of urgency in some liberal legal circles, with Democrats locked in a bitter struggle with Republicans to keep control of the Senate in the fall midterm elections. The discussion is a delicate one, out of deference to the justices, but several lawyers say it’s quietly echoing from the White House to Congress and

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is currently claiming that seven different IRS officials experienced computer crashes that erased their emails and made it impossible for the IRS to cooperate with congressional investigations into the IRS targeting matter. The wave of computer crashes apparently struck both Washington, D.C. — where Lois Lerner oversaw the agency’s Exempt Organizations division — and also Cincinnati, Ohio — where agents processed tax-exempt applications. The Federal Records Act requires IRS employees to save all of their emails pertaining to agency business and to also print those emails out in case they have a computer crash. IRS

Senior Obama administration officials’ closed-door briefing to senators Tuesday night revealed that the White House did not anticipate and was not prepared for the rise of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL or ISIS), which has wreaked havoc in Iraq and seized many key cities in recent weeks. Top State Department and Defense Department officials joined senators Tuesday evening for a briefing on the quickly developing chaos in Iraq and future U.S. plans for a response. Sources familiar with the brief said that the administration officials repeated talking points issued over the past several days in both open and

With a surprisingly wide margin of victory, Congressman James Lankford won the Oklahoma Republican U.S. Senate primary, defeating former Speaker of the State House of Representatives T.W. Shannon by 23 points and avoiding a runoff election. Lankford now becomes the prohibitive favorite to replace outgoing Senator Tom Coburn, who is retiring with two years remaining in his current term. This was a very different race from the one taking place in Mississippi. Despite negative ads run against Lankford by conservative groups, the Oklahoma contest was not an example of an “establishment” Republican or RINO versus a Tea Party candidate. In

Hillary Clinton has a “secret deal” with her top aide Huma Abedin to keep her troublesome husband Anthony Weiner out of the spotlight, sources tell Page Six, as the former secretary of state mulls a run for president. Clinton aides have insisted Weiner “stay out of public life for two years,” and that he “avoid causing any further embarrassment to Huma or Clinton,” according to our sources. The former sexting pol has been noticeably absent at recent public events attended by Abedin, including the Gordon Parks Foundation Awards Dinner in Manhattan earlier this month.

Thad Cochran’s political resurrection began with a campaign shakeup and ended with a Hail Mary television ad. Just three weeks ago, in the dead of night on June 3, the Mississippi senator’s staff sat shaken and dejected, crestfallen at the results of a primary that deprived the six-term incumbent of an electoral majority. With Cochran forced into a runoff fight against an aggressive and energetic challenger, a dark mood shadowed his backers in Washington and Mississippi.Yet almost immediately, the Cochran coalition began bouncing back. Even on that gloomy night of June 3, Cochran adviser Stuart Stevens was insisting to staffers: “We’re

President Obama is now reaching terminal velocity, like a skydiver plunging toward earth. Except he doesn’t have a parachute. There’s a mighty splat coming soon. With his approval rating at 40 percent, down 6 points from early June, and just 29 percent of Americans convinced the country is on the “right track,” the president is doubling down on his strategy of blaming Republicans for his failures. And he’s shifting into hyperpartisan drive, traveling the country to campaign for Democrats, many of whom wish he’d just stay away. Worse, the news just keeps getting well, worse: The Veterans Affairs scandal is blazing, with

Lois Lerner, the controversial director of the tax-exempt organizations division at the Internal Revenue Service, has a long sordid history of targeting conservatives. Under the direction of Lois Lerner, the Federal Election Commission sued the Christian Coalition in the 1990s. She harassed the Christian Coalition for three election cycles. Eventually, she lost her case. At one point Lerner even asked a targeted conservative if Pat Robertson prayed over him. (Sound familiar?) In 1996, while at the FEC, Lois Lerner harassed Republican Senate candidate Al Salvi and made him this outrageous offer, “Promise me you will never run for office again, and

Republicans are in the strongest position to win back the Senate since losing it eight years ago. Over several months, the party has expanded its range of targeted seats, and the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) has helped defeat insurgents it didn’t want representing the GOP in the midterm elections. This sober realization came to Democrats on Wednesday, as Tuesday night’s primary results showed they cannot count on Tea Party candidates upsetting more-electable incumbents. And Democrats are increasingly realizing that President Obama’s approval rating will probably remain mired at 45 percent or lower until

National conservative groups are angry after incumbent Mississippi Sen. Thad Cochran pulled off a victory in the state’s GOP run-off — likely because of his campaign’s outreach to Democratic voters. “It’s disgraceful that self-described GOP leaders like Mitch McConnell, John McCain, the Chamber of Commerce and the NRSC would champion a campaign platform of pork barrel spending and insider deal-making, while recruiting Democrats to show up at the polls,” Matt Kibbe of FreedomWorks said after the results came in. Tuesday’s closely-watched run-off came after conservative state Sen. Chris McDaniel edged Cochran in votes in the initial election earlier this month.
