    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: This is hilarious. As you know, ladies and gentlemen, beginning with the first day of the year, and because of the fiscal cliff deal, the temporary partial tax cut on the Social Security tax expired. There was a temporary partial exemption on the payroll tax. I've been asked if most people noticed it. They didn't notice it until they were told about it. It added up to, depending on your income, it could be a thousand dollars a year that you had extra because of this partial tax. Anyway, on January 1, that partial temporary tax cut...

    Gun advocate Ted Nugent has taken it upon himself to write an open letter to U.S. Vice President Joe Biden on how he should handle the issue of gun control. In essence, Nugent is calling for no further gun control but better the use of public service announcements encouraging the public to be aware of warning signs by those in their realm that could point to a possible dangerous situation. The letter, published by the Washington Times, may not be every American's cup of tea nor may it be the right way to avoid further tragedies, but it is possibly...

    They walked into a Manhattan hotel, knowing they were running out of time to save their season. After 16 hours of tense talks, the NHL and its players finally achieved their elusive deal early Sunday morning, finding a way to restart a sport desperate to regain momentum and boost its prominence. Ending a bitter dispute that wiped out a large part of the hockey season for the third time in less than two decades, the league and its union agreed to the framework of a 10-year labor contract that will allow a delayed schedule to start later this month.

    President Barack Obama said he’s willing to consider more spending cuts to lower the deficit, as long as they’re coupled with more tax reforms. Using Saturday’s weekly address to praise Congress’ last-minute deal to avert the “fiscal cliff,” Obama said it’s “just one more step” in the larger effort to boost the economy and reduce federal deficits. He said this week’s deal raised taxes on the wealthiest Americans while preventing a middle-class tax hike that could have thrown the country back into recession. “I believe we can find more places to cut spending without shortchanging things like education, job training,...

    Even though he signed the 2013 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), President Obama says he will not abide by its provision protecting military chaplains from being compelled to perform services which violate their moral or religious beliefs. “I am the Commander-in-Chief,” Obama explained. “It is every soldier’s duty to carry out my orders without hesitation or mental reservation. No religious dogma can be permitted to interfere with this duty.” The genesis of the so-called “right of conscience” clause in the legislation was the desire to allow chaplains to be excused from performing gay marriages if their religious beliefs are opposed...

    They’re threatened by informed consent. They’re traumatized by the limp body parts they look at every day. They’re torn by the contradiction that they became doctors to preserve life but use their profession to end it. Here are some eye-opening confessions from current and former abortionists. They [the women] are never allowed to look at the ultrasound because we knew that if they so much as heard the heart beat, they wouldn’t want to have an abortion. –Dr. Randall, former abortionistEven now I feel a little peculiar about it, because as a physician I was trained to conserve life, and...
  • Is Our Debt Burden Really $100 Trillion? (probably more - 'unfunded liabilities' are a KILLER)

    The Atlantic ^ | 11/28/12 | Derek Thompson
    Wanna scare somebody about America's debt on the eve of the Fiscal Cliff? I mean, really scare somebody? Here's a trick. Don't talk about the debt. Talk about "unfunded liabilities." The U.S. national debt comes out to about $16 trillion today. That's something. But it's nothing compared to the extra $87 trillion in unfunded liabilities to Social Security, Medicare, and federal pensions. Here's how that works. If you add up all of the U.S. government's promises to pay retirement and health care benefits for the next 75 years and subtract the projected tax revenue dedicated to those programs over the...

    Roll Call ^ | 1/6/13 | Jonathan Strong
    A concerted effort to unseat Speaker John A. Boehner was under way the day of his re-election to the position, but participants called it off 30 minutes before the House floor vote, CQ Roll Call has learned. A group of disaffected conservatives had agreed to vote against the Ohio lawmaker if they could get at least 25 members to join the effort. But one member, whose identity could not be verified, rescinded his or her participation the morning of the vote, leaving the group one person short of its self-imposed 25-member threshold. Only 17 votes against Boehner were required to...

    Continuing a JPII tradition he was initially loath to pick up, this morning again saw the Pope mark Epiphany by ordaining a new crop of bishops, the crop of four headlined by the elevation of his longtime personal secretary, now Archbishop Georg Gänswein, who Benedict XVI has made his ultimate gatekeeper by naming the 56 year-old German as prefect of the Papal Household. Two of the other new archbishops – the Nigerian Fortunatus Nwachukwu, 52, and the Genovese Nicolas Thevenin, 54 – will respectively serve as papal nuncio in Nicaragua and Guatemala, while the Italian Angelo Vincenzo Zani, 62, will...
