Friday News Dump: Feds Unveil
New Birth Control Mandate

Breitbart InstaBlog, by Dan Riehl

Posted By:JoniTx, 8/23/2014 2:52:18 AM

The problem with ObamaCare isn´t just that it´s the so called law of the land, said law seems to keep changing in reaction to events and court rulings until not even "we have to pass it to see what´s in it" holds up to the slightest scrutiny. As usual with a Friday news dump, the devil is in the details down below. The Obama administration is moving forward with regulations meant to enable certain businesses and charities to steer clear of the Affordable Care Act’s so-called birth control mandate, while ensuring free contraception coverage for women under the law.

Boehner: Congress limited

The Hill (Washington DC), by Mario Trujillo    Original Article

Congress is handcuffed in addressing the threat posed by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) until President Obama details a strategy against the militant group, Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) said Tuesday. Boehner said the United States could either eliminate the threat or continue to put U.S. lives at risk. "It’s his responsibility as the chief executive to outline a plan that will protect American interest, protect American lives both at home and abroad," Boehner said on Hugh Hewitt´s radio show. "And until the president is willing to lay out a plan, the Congress has very few options ahead

President Obama said Wednesday that the federal government has authenticated a video showing the beheading of American journalist Steven Sotloff at the hands of Islamist militants, and the U.S. objective now is to “degrade and destroy” those militants so they no longer pose a threat to the civilized world. Speaking at a press conference alongside Estonian President Toomas Hendrik Ilves in the Estonian capital of Tallinn, Mr. Obama seemed to lay the groundwork for expanded U.S. action against the terrorist group known as the Islamic State, also known by the acronyms ISIL and ISIS. The U.S. continues to target Islamic State

Economy: Time was, they had fact-checkers at the White House. They must´ve had the weekend off when President Obama let go a whopper at a Labor Day rally in Milwaukee. ´By almost every measure," he boasted, "the American economy and American workers are better off than when I took office." This must explain why nearly half of American workers believe the U.S. is still in a recession. Sure, the stock market´s done well and employment has picked up, but the most important indicator of their financial situation is whether take-home pay keeps pace with inflation.

Time for strategy from Obama

This time the dead hostage is a 31-year-old freelance journalist named Steven Sotloff, murdered by ISIS in front of the world the way James Foley was. This is a different sort of mass murder, in a world that grows more mad and more dangerous with every news cycle, one innocent at a time. This is a way of using hostages to hold us all hostage. So Foley dies the way he does and Steven Sotloff dies the same way, even after his mother begs the ISIS leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, for mercy, and humanity, as if you can somehow find

US president Barack Obama elaborated on America´s response to a second video showing a masked militant cutting the throat of a US captive, during a joint press conference hosted by the Estonian President this morning. The president said he had ordered about 350 more US troops to Baghdad to protect American diplomatic facilities and staff in the Iraqi capital. The move comes after terrorist group Islamic State (also known as Isil) released a second video showing a masked militant with a British accent cutting the throat of a US captive. Overnight, the US lawmakers offered plans to introduce legislation that would

Government Debt Passes $6 Trillion
Cybercast News Service, by Terence P. Jeffrey    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 9/3/2014 5:12:51 AM     Post Reply
For the first time in the nation’s history, foreign interests now own more than $6 trillion in U.S. government debt, according to the most recent Treasury Department report on major foreign holders of the debt, which includes the numbers through the end of June. As of the end of June, foreign owners held $6,013,200,000,000 in U.S. Treasury securities, up from $5,976,500,000,000 as of the end of May. Thirteen years ago, at the end of June 2001, the foreign-held U.S. government debt was $983,300,000,000—and had been trending downward for four months. Since then, it has grown more than six-fold.

Detroit will not recover, and it may not survive as a major city if its debts are not significantly reduced during bankruptcy, a city attorney told a federal judge at the start of a critical phase of the case on Tuesday. As Detroit´s state-appointed emergency manager Kevyn Orr looked on in the courtroom, Bruce Bennett, an attorney for the city, sought to convince Judge Steven Rhodes that Detroit´s 1,034-page plan to adjust $18 billion of debt would save the city. "There is no doubt, your honor, that progress has been made, but Detroit is still a city in distress," said

Fox News analyst Brit Hume noted on Tuesday that, despite public opposition to a new fight in Iraq, ISIS risks awakening a “sleeping giant” if their brutal beheadings and other atrocities spur angry Americans to advocate war against the Islamic radicals. Hume spoke with Fox’s Bret Baier about the Tuesday release of a second video showing the savage decapitation of American journalist Steven Sotloff by an ISIS fighter. “What about the political power of this image?” Baier asked. “What does that mean here in the U.S.?” “Well the American military is, at the moment, kind of a sleeping giant, and

ATLANTA— The director for the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention says that the Ebola outbreak is going to get worse. Speaking to “CBS This Morning” following his trip to the West African countries dealing with the outbreak, Dr. Tom Frieden explained that they have to act now to try to get Ebola under control. “It is the world’s first Ebola epidemic and it is spiraling out of control.

President Obama approved sending 350 additional troops to Baghdad, the Iraqi capital, to increase security at the U.S. Embassy compound and its support facilities. The Pentagon said late Tuesday that the new personnel would build upon previous deployments that were announced in June, boosting security in Iraq to about 820 people. "The additional joint forces will come from within the U.S. Central Command area of operations and will include a headquarters element, medical personnel, associated helicopters, and an air liaison team," Pentagon spokesman Rear Adm. John F. Kirby said in a statement. The forces are expected to provide security for the

MOSCOW — President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia told a European official that he could “take Kiev in two weeks” if he wanted to, adding a new dimension to the tensions building in Ukraine as Russian forces become more involved in the fighting there. As NATO leaders gathered in Wales for a summit meeting, Mr. Putin’s remarks and the increasing presence of Russian military units in Ukraine posed a stark new challenge to the alliance about how to respond to Moscow’s apparent willingness to exert military force to achieve its foreign policy goals. The Kremlin did not deny the remark,

President Obama needs to take action to stop Islamic State (Isis) militants from targeting cities in America and Western Europe, two senators have warned. Without offering specifics on any threats or suggestions on how to confront them, the leaders of the Senate and House of Representatives intelligence committees urged the White House to work to prevent the Islamic State extremists from launching attacks on US soil. The bipartisan pair shared a dire warning against Isis, which now has control of vast swathes of Syria and Iraq, has killed civilians from that region and beheaded American journalist James Foley. “This is

One couple knows all too well the pain suffered by the parents of James Foley, the American journalist executed last month by the Islamic State. Billy and Karen Vaughn also lost their only-son Aaron Carson Vaughn in 2011, when the SEAL Team Six soldier´s Chinook helicopter was shown down over Afghanistan. Now the couple are calling on President Barack Obama to step down, citing his reaction to the Foley video and ´lack of leadership´ in confronting ISIS.

President Obama’s spokesman emphasized that the United States tried to save journalist Steven Sotloff, who has reportedly been beheaded by ISIS terrorists. “The United States, as you know, has dedicated significant time and resources to try and rescue Mr. Sotloff,” Earnest told reporters when alerted that ISIS had claimed to have executed the kidnapped reporter. In the video, the authenticity of which Earnest could confirm, Sotloff is apparently killed by the same British jihadist who killed American photojournalist James Foley. “I’m back, Obama, and I’m back because of your arrogant foreign policy towards the Islamic State,”

The FBI said late Monday that it was investigating leaked nude photos that targeted Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton. The agency told the Associated Press that it was addressing accusations that online accounts of celebrities, including Oscar-winner Lawrence, had been hacked, leading to the posting of their nude photographs online. In addition, Apple Inc. spokeswoman Natalie Kerris said the company was investigating whether any iCloud accounts were compromised, according to the AP. Representatives for supermodel-turned-actress Upton, 22, and Lawrence, 24, who plays heroine Katniss Everdeen in the Hunger Games movie franchise, issued statements about intimate pictures which first appeared on

In remarks on the U.S. economy Monday, President Barack Obama said Congressional Republicans will eventually cave to public pressure to raise the federal minimum wage. Obama was speaking at the Laborfest festival hosted by the AFL-CIO in Milwaukee, Wis. “If I cared about these things, I’d also want more Democrats looking out for me,” he said. “I’m just saying. Because when the rest of the country is working to raise wages, but Republicans in Congress won’t, it ain’t right.” Noting the protests in recent months from fast food workers seeking higher wages, Obama said Republicans would open up to the

Just resign already. Go. Be gone. Vamoose. Get out of our lives. More important: Stop endangering all of us with your self-indulgent vacations and self-absorbed dithering, along with unconstitutional domestic power plays while the whole world burns. Barack Obama already is derelict in his duties as commander in chief. He ought to abdicate and just step off his self-made throne. Knowledgeable people were calling for Obama to begin air strikes against the Islamic State barbarians months before Obama could rouse himself to admit that the brutes were something other than “jayvee” terrorists. Because he didn’t, thousands of innocents died, villages were razed,

Over the weekend, former President Jimmy Carter addressed the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) in Detroit. He told the assembly that the principles of Allah will benefit the whole world. Jimmy Carter left the Southern Baptist Church a few years back, citing its “rigid” views. Muslim views tend to be a whole lot more “rigid.” For instance, Saudi Arabia doesn’t allow Christians to build any churches. Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood supporters are waging pogroms against Christians. If a Muslim leaves Islam, they are called an apostate and are often marked or death. One can be an apostate just by having

President Obama spent Labor Day in Wisconsin, opening the campaign season in a battleground state with a tight race for governor — but the Democrat at the top of the ticket there was nowhere to be seen. Mary Burke, who is battling to unseat Republican Gov. Scott Walker, decided to steer clear of Obama’s visit to LaborFest, an annual salute to organized labor held in Milwaukee. She became the latest in a parade of Democrats in tight races who have tried to create space between themselves and a President with weak poll numbers.

Sometime on Saturday night, vandals attacked three Christian houses of worship in Columbus, Indiana, spray-painting the word "infidels" and citations of verses from the Koran on the outer walls. St. Bartholomew Catholic Church, Lakeview Church of Christ, and East Columbus Christian Church all had the word "infidels" spray-painted on them, in places of prominence to be seen by worshipers. Cited in the Indianapolis Star, Columbus police spokesperson Matt Harris said that church employees discovered the vandalism when they arrived to prepare for Sunday services. At St. Bartholomew, the words "Qur´an 3:151" were also left. That verse reads:
