    <p>With the election over and Obama reelected, repealing the law is not going to happen over the next four years. So 30 Republican governors will have to make a decision about whether they want to help the federal government implement Obamacare, or keep the onus on the Obama administration.</p>

    COLORADO CITY — There are new indications of turmoil after an end-of-the-world prophecy from polygamist leader Warren Jeffs. Some say people are scared in the Utah-Arizona border town of Hildale/Colorado City. Reportedly, Jeffs is predicting the end-of-the-world sometime before New Year's Day. He's made similar predictions before. But, this time it's in a worrisome climate as his followers have been repeatedly warned and threatened to prove their righteousness. Many residents of Hildale & Colorado City were shocked to find three of the most prominent businesses suddenly closed- the only grocery store, the hardware store, and even a Radio Shack. Imprisoned...

  • Alleging Republican 'blind eye' on defense spending, GOP senator proposes cuts

    A Senate Republican fiscal hawk offered a 74-page menu of Defense Department spending cuts Thursday that could save taxpayers nearly $68 billion over 10 years. Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., said he and his staff had identified several categories of “non-defense spending at the Pentagon,” outlays which he said had “little to do with national security.” At a Capitol Hill press conference, Coburn accused his fellow Senate Republicans of “having a blind eye on spending.” He summed up their approach as “It’s OK to cut spending anywhere except the Defense Department.” But, he said “to be legitimate and have any integrity...

    Are you ready to wake up in an America where your family is defenseless against enemies foreign or domestic? This reality is right around the corner. A day after his reelection, Barack Obama signaled the United Nations that he is ready to sign an Arms Treaty to strip you of your U.S. Second Amendment Constitutional right to bear arms. This is not new. The United Nations made earlier attempts during the administration of former President George W. Bush. But, President Bush soundly rejected the measure. Now, President Obama, fresh off of this presidential win, feels emboldened to go forward with...

    November 16, 2012 St. Lucie County had 304 uncounted votes, official says Johnathan Mattise At least 304 early votes in St. Lucie County were not counted, according to a Florida elections official during early voting at a canvassing board meeting Friday night. David Drury, head of the Division of Elections Bureau of Voting Systems Certifications also made a recommendation that the board re-run every early vote. The board will discuss that after running the 304 votes. It took about four hours to run the military and overseas ballots, which needed to be transferred by hand. The board is preparing to...

    The Ebola virus can spread through the air from pigs to macaques, a new study suggests. Transmission of the virus — which causes an often fatal hemorrhagic fever in people and primates — was thought to require direct contact with body fluids from an infected animal or person. But in the new study, published online November 15 in Scientific Reports, piglets infected with Ebola passed the virus to macaques housed in the same room even though the animals never touched. “The evidence that the virus got from a pig to a monkey through a respiratory route is good,” says Glenn...

    ABC has cancelled Last Resort and 666 Park Avenue. Both shows will not be receiving orders for additional episodes beyond their first thirteen. Despite a lot of critical support for Last Resort, it struggled on Thursday nights on ABC. 666 Park Avenue meanwhile was the clear ratings weak link on ABC’s Sunday night lineup. Variety reports that both shows will at least air all thirteen episodes.

    International Land Grab Imagine waking up in a country where a high-ranking government official stands in front of citizens and rails against personal property rights: “The American system of justice must be changed to conform to that of the rest of the world, and there must be a shift in attitudes. Individual wants, needs and desires are to be conformed to the views and dictates of government planners. In the process of implementing Sustainable Development, individual rights will have to take a back seat to the collective.” The shocking line that individual rights should be relegated to the rear has...

    On MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry Show Saturday, CBS’s Nancy Giles said the reason white people are “trying to eliminate all these abortions” is “to build up the [white] race.” This is the epitome of racism. Can you imagine what the response would have been if a white person had said that the reason blacks are winning elections is that they are having so many babies out of wedlock, which they are? She’s implying that lowering restrictions on abortion will help liberals. Sick. Could it possibly be that the reason conservatives, white and black alike, oppose abortion is because it results in...

    In a Dilbert-esque faux pax, a Taliban spokesperson sent out a routine email last week with one notable difference.He publicly CC'd the names of everyone on his mailing list. The names were disclosed in an email by Qari Yousuf Ahmedi, an official Taliban spokesperson, on Saturday. The email was a press release he received from the account of Zabihullah Mujahid, another Taliban spokesperson. Ahmedi then forwarded Mujahid's email to the full Taliban mailing list, but rather than using the BCC function, or blind carbon copy which keeps email addresses private, Ahmedi made the addresses public.

    President Obama promotes the myth that everyone must go to college. That if you don't go, your life will be ruined -- that you will end up waiting tables, or trapped in some other mundane occupation. The truth is, even with a college degree, you may still end up waiting tables, you'll just begin your "career" four or five years later, tens of thousands of dollars in debt. Here is an example of some of the plumb jobs college grads were able to land during the Obama administration. Not just liberal arts majors mind you, but graduates with degrees in...

  • Ted Cruz: Mitt Romney ‘French-kissed’ Barack Obama

    By KEVIN ROBILLARD | 11/16/12 4:38 PM EST Sen.-elect Ted Cruz believes Mitt Romney got a little too close to Barack Obama in the third presidential debate. “I’m pretty certain Mitt Romney actually French-kissed Barack Obama,” Cruz said in a speech at the Federalist Society’s annual conference Friday. Cruz said that conservatives failed to make their case to the American people, leaving Romney no choice but to move toward the president. “We didn’t win the argument, we didn’t even make the argument” throughout much of 2012, Cruz said. But in the first debate, he argued, that changed. “It was the...
