  • Broken Promise #3: The Health Care Law Will Cover 32 Million Uninsured Americans

    The President himself may not be doing anything this week to mark the two-year anniversary of his health care law, but his administration is working hard to convince the public that they really should like it. To set the record straight here’s another post on one of the significant failings of the law. Today’s broken promise is: The health care law will cover 32 million* uninsured Americans. In February 2010, the White House released their health care reform plan with the promise of covering 32 million Americans. One way the law does that is by expanding Medicaid eligibility. Kaiser Health...
  • Public Has 90 Days to Comment on Mandate for Abortion-Causing Drugs

    The Obama administration on Friday released an advance notice of the public rule requiring all employers to provide insurance that covers drugs that could cause early abortions, inviting public comment for the next 90 days. But according to experts who’ve analyzed the fine print, the administration only seems to be asking for help in balancing its priority — free contraceptives, sterilizations and abortifacient drugs for all women — with the religious freedoms of employers. The 32-page notice asks the public for input on which, if any, organizations should be exempt from the mandate. “What entities should be eligible for the...

    The Vatican has for the first time appeared on the State Department's list of money-laundering centers but the tiny city-state is not rated as a high-risk country. The 2012 International Narcotics Control Strategy Report was made public on Wednesday and Washington's list of 190 countries classifies them in three categories: of primary concern, of concern and monitored. The Vatican is in the second category, grouped with 67 other nations including Poland, Egypt, Ireland, Hungary and Chile. It was added to the list because it was considered vulnerable to money-laundering and had recently established programs to prevent it, a State Department...

    The Telegraph ^ | 3/5/2012 | Hannah Furness
    Hundreds of churches across the country are now preaching an updated version of the Ten Commandments, rewritten to reflect modern values. The religious rules, which Christians believe were etched onto tablets by God and given to Moses, have been modified to use up-to-date language and principles. Inspired by last year’s riots, the new vows include “manage your anger”, “know God” and “catch your breath” and are understood to be used in more than 600 churches in Britain. The original “thou shalt not steal” has become “prosper with a clear conscience”, and the lengthy “thou shalt not take the name of...

    Washington - Republicans should base their 2012 campaign on an agenda so bold and ambitious that victory would hand the party a transformational governing mandate, House budget chair Paul Ryan told a gathering of conservative activists here Thursday. "This election cannot be just a referendum on President (Barack) Obama's failed leadership," said Ryan, of Janesville. "Americans deserve a choice - a choice between two dramatically different visions for our country's future. As conservatives, we owe Americans that choice." The Conservative Political Action Conference kicked off its annual event Thursday, a mecca for presidential candidates, leading lawmakers, conservative celebrities and the...

While the UFC has yet to make an official announcement, MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) has confirmed with multiple sources close to the promotion that as of Jan. 23, "absolutely no firearms, ammo, hunting or knife companies will be permitted as sponsors in any Zuffa-promoted events."

    President Barack Obama rang in the New Year by signing the NDAA law with its provision allowing him to indefinitely detain citizens. It was a symbolic moment to say the least. With Americans distracted with drinking and celebrating, Obama signed one of the greatest rollbacks of civil liberties in the history of our country. . . and citizens partied only blissfully into the New Year. Ironically, in addition to breaking his promise not to sign the law, Obama broke his promise on signing statements and attached a statement that he really does not want to detain citizens indefinitely. Obama insisted...

    As if we didn't have to worry about with the Marxist revolutionaries in the White House, the Muslims are now calling for a revolution to impose Shariah law on the United States.And from the look of their website "splash" page it appears that they are threatening an event on 9/11. Click here and watch the message, but close the "splash" page and come back here after watching the "splash" page and before going to the main site. I couldn't figure out the meaning of 8.46/9.03, so I googled "Quran 8.46" and "Quran 9.03."  Here are the results. Quran 8.46: "And obey...

    Jerry Buell is back in the classroom, as he should be. Or, perhaps, shouldn't be. Buell, 54, a devout Baptist, family man and veteran teacher of American history at public Mount Dora High School in central Florida, might as well be the faculty heavy in an episode of Glee: this summer, he set off a national First Amendment fracas by announcing on Facebook that gay marriage is a "cesspool" that makes him vomit and mocks God. Buell's employer, the Lake County School District, removed him from the classroom last week for the first three days of the new school year,...

    Energy: It won't matter which light bulbs we use as the administration's implementation of cross-state pollution rules shuts down coal plants across the country. Where will the jobs be when the lights go out? It's called the Cross-State Pollution Rule, announced last month, and its implementation over the next 18 months will likely result in the loss of a fifth of the nation's electricity-generating capacity. The result will be likely power shortages, skyrocketing rates and inevitable brownouts and rolling blackouts. Based on Bush-era EPA proposals that the federal courts threw out in 2008, this latest example of legislation is designed...

    Regulation: Unsupported by science, a beleaguered American economy may soon be subject to ozone standards so stringent that Yellowstone National Park could not meet them. Look forward to double-digit unemployment. While the nation focused on the debt ceiling and its credit rating, the Environmental Protection Agency, which has become an unelected government unto itself, pondered a new way to impose rules that help explain why this economy cannot grow or create jobs and revenues. High ozone levels can cause severe regulatory distress, but like other stuff in the atmosphere, there is a relatively safe level that can be obtained. Then...

    Is the US government starting to implement the policies of the United Nation’s plan for global management of people and resources known as Agenda 21? The latest efforts out of the Department of Transportation (DOT) seem to indicate this is happening. And they are starting by targeting America’s farming communities with costly and oppressive regulations. In Late May, the DOT proposed a rule change for farm equipment, and if it this allowed to take effect, it will place significant regulatory pressure on small farms and family farms all across America – costing them thousands of dollars and possibly forcing many...

  • MSM LIES ALL THE TIME!!!! So Do Not Believe Them About Republicans Caving!

    Like they always do when Republicans do not go along with Democrats, the leftist MSM is again trying their best to convince the base that they are caving into the pressure from Obama and moving towards allowing the debt ceiling to be raised. As usual, when I read comments by many conservatives, I read that they are finished with the Republicans because they have caved to the left. First off, we are talking a bout a media that has yet to tell the truth about anything Republicans say or do. A media that cannot find a viable life form...

    A new book by New York Times reporter Janny Scott sheds new light on the life of Barack Obama’s mother, Ann Dunham, including her final years. Scott found while assembling information for “A Singular Woman: The Untold Story of Barack Obama’s Mother,” that Dunham in fact did have health coverage for her ovarian cancer, based off Dunham’s own past correspondence. Washington Examiner’s Byron York: “Dunham decided to stay in Jakarta, where she underwent an appendectomy. But the pain did not go away, and Dunham feared, correctly, that she was terribly ill. In January 1995 she left Indonesia to go home...

    Health Reform: Picking up the baton from the disgraced Anthony Wiener, the New York Times slanders Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, hoping to keep him from voting on the constitutionality of ObamaCare. According to the Times, Justice Thomas should not sit in on any case involving ObamaCare because, well, he's conservative and has rich conservative friends, and maybe he shouldn't be sitting on the high court at all. The June 18 article by Mike McIntire doesn't mention ObamaCare, but it doesn't have to. It's yet another salvo in the left's campaign against Thomas that in February saw 74 House Democrats,...

    On June 9, 2011, an Executive Order established the White House Rural Council with 25 executive branch departments including Defense, Justice, Homeland Security, National Drug Control, Environmental Quality, Labor, Commerce, Interior, EPA, Housing, Health, Education to name just a few. The order covers 16% of the American population who lives in rural counties because they “supply our food, fiber, and energy, safeguard our natural resources, and are essential in the development of science and innovation.” “Strong, sustainable rural communities are essential in winning the future and ensuring American competitiveness in the years ahead.” What kind of future are we supposed...
