    Heck, who cares if the "neighbors" in question have a knife to your throat. Bill Nye, foppish self-proclaimed Science Guy, appeared on Real Time with Bill Maher this past Friday night and demonstrated why he ought to stick with his true vocation as a global-warming bedwetter. During a panel discussion on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's suggestion that European Jews fearful for their lives should come "home" to Israel, Nye mocked the idea and blamed Jews for not being friendlier to predators who consider it a holy rite to slaughter them

    She hasn’t even announced, but the question has already resurfaced: Will Bill Clinton’s baggage derail Hillary Clinton’s presidential hopes? Just a few weeks ago, reports broke that Bill Clinton had flown at least 11 times on “The Lolita Express” — a private plane owned by the mysterious financier and convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein. According to Virginia Roberts, who claims to have been one of Epstein’s many teenaged sex slaves, Clinton also visited Epstein’s private Caribbean retreat, known as “Orgy Island.”

    After days of debates lasting hours on the House of Delegates floor, West Virginia lawmakers passed a bill that would limit abortions in the state. On Wednesday House Bill 2368 passed by an overwhelming majority, 87-12, with both republicans and democrats voting in favor of it. The bill would ban abortions after 20 weeks, granting exemptions if a mother's life was in danger or the fetus was not medically viable. Doctors who would perform an abortion after this time would be at risk of losing their medical licenses. “Truly what we are talking about is just ensuring that a child,...

    A massive leak of documents from HSBC’s Swiss banking arm has revealed an array of sketchy dealings with wealthy individuals, including dictators and arms traffickers, through which the bank helped unsavory characters dodge taxes and avoid government scrutiny. Among the unsavory characters exposed in the leak are a number of prominent donors to the Clinton Foundation. For example, the leaked documents detailed a five million Swiss franc cash transaction to British business mogul Richard Caring: HSBC staff explained handing Caring the huge sum of cash by quoting a statement by him that he planned to deposit the cash with another...

    A bill has been introduced into the U.S. House by a Wisconsin Congressman which would stop abortion providers from “unbundling” abortion services so they can submit separate claims to Medicaid. U.S. Representative Sean Duffy (R-WI) said that he introduced the ‘‘Medicaid Abortion Funding Prohibition Accountability Act“ to target Medicaid providers who improperly submit reimbursement claims to pay for abortions, and related services. “These companies submit separate claims for abortion related procedures in order to receive increased Medicaid reimbursements. It is a process known as “unbundling” and is in violation of federal law,” Rep. Duffy said in his press release. “All...

    AUSTIN — The fight over the death of Marlise Muńoz, the pregnant and brain-dead North Texas woman who was left on life support for two months, appears likely to begin again soon at the Capitol. A Fort Worth lawmaker is pushing a new state law that would provide representation for fetuses in court hearings — an idea that Muńoz’s family opposes. A blood clot caused Muńoz, 33, to collapse at her Haltom City home in November 2013. Two scans taken at John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth revealed that she was brain-dead. Her family immediately asked the hospital to...

Missouri has an “informed consent” law that requires physicians to present details of the procedure in written form.

Black says her bill would help those who are illiterate or do not learn...

    Can those who call themselves "pro-life" or "pro-choice" in what some call the "abortion wars," find some common ground? We'll see. Rep. Alfred C. Adinolfi, R-Cheshire, has introduced a bill, titled "Prevent Coerced Abortions" (H.B. 6193), which has been referred to the legislature's Judiciary Committee. When the U.S. Supreme Court legalized abortion in 1973, thus making abortion more available, it not only allowed women to choose to have an abortion, it also made it easier to force a pregnant woman to have an abortion which she did not want and did not choose. A study by David Reardon, Ph.D., of...

Anitere Flores, R-Miami, would add to part of state law that currently requires physicians to inform women about issues such as potential risks of abortions and the gestational ages of fetuses. Under the proposal, physicians would be required to provide such information at least 24 hours before abortions are performed. Also, it would require physicians to be in the same room with the women when the information is provided.

A five-member state House panel unanimously OK’d the “Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.” That act would ban abortion at 20 weeks – based on pro-lifers’ claims, disputed by some in the medical community, that a fetus can feel pain at that point. If the House Judiciary Committee also approves, the bill will go to the House floor for a vote. A similar bill passed the House 81-22 last...

After learning a woman does not want to terminate her pregnancy, a person also could not threaten to cut off legally required financial support or withdraw from a contract.

    Bill Cosby was asked on NPR's Weekend Edition Saturday whether he had anything to say about the resurgence of allegations that he sexually assaulted multiple women years ago. He didn't. Instead, he shook his head, and refused to say a word. Cosby's long comedy career and pedestal as one of America's favorite TV dads have been overshadowed in recent days, as the allegations have gained new attention, though they are not new. One of his accusers wrote an op-ed in The Washington Post on Thursday, an attempt at a Cosby meme generator was overrun with negative comments and Cosby's scheduled...

    Self-proclaimed Clinton Democrats are struggling this election cycle, and not even their powerful namesakes may be enough to save them. Both Bill and Hillary Clinton have tried to turn on their charms to help centrist Democrats in Kentucky and Arkansas. But as candidates in both states are slipping, help from the party’s preeminent power couple is falling short. In Kentucky, Alison Lundergan Grimes has clung tightly to both Bill and Hillary Clinton as she tries to unseat Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell(R). The former president has already campaigned with the Democratic hopeful twice and will head to the Bluegrass State...

    Hi everybody. I’m Bill Whittle and this is the Firewall. Ah, Progressives! You really have to – well, not admire them exactly – but if not admire them then at least grant them a grudging respect for the tenacity of their beliefs. Unfortunately for them, the Socialist utopia is a Cryptid, which, according to Wikipedia’s serviceable definition, is “a creature whose existence has been suggested but has not been discovered or documented by the scientific community.” Here’s another example of a cryptid: it’s called the Loch Ness Monster. Like the socialist utopia, the Loch Ness Monster requires a lot of...
  • Sheriff Joe Arpaio endorses Doug Ducey's governor campaign

    Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio announced in a Friday press release he is endorsing State Treasurer Doug Ducey's gubernatorial campaign. The move doesn't necessarily come as a surprise, as both Arpaio and Ducey are very focused on illegal immigration and the border. "I'm supporting Doug (Ducey) because he's the right leader for Arizona, and he'll do the right thing as governor," Arpaio said in the release.

    "Senate Budget Committee ranking member Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) isn't saying either way whether he's backing the new House immigration bill, but a hill source tells Breitbart News that he's "very encouraged" by what's happened thus far on Friday. “Senator Sessions is very encouraged by the significant developments in the House,” a congressional source told Breitbart News. Over the past week plus, Sessions has been a major player in the goings-on of this immigration war. When Rep. Kay Granger (R-TX) introduced the House GOP leadership recommendations on behalf of the working group Speaker John Boehner set up, Sessions called the...

  • House readies bill to stop Obama's immigration order -- in advance

    Washington Examiner ^ | 7-31-2014 | Byron York
    On what could be the last lawmaking session before the summer recess, both House and Senate are preparing bills to one-up each other on immigration. First, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said that if the House passes a border crisis bill, he and Senate Democrats might attach the Gang of Eight comprehensive immigration reform bill to it -- a move that would clearly doom the whole border emergency spending effort. Now, House Republican leaders have written a bill that would stop President Obama from using executive power to legalize millions of currently illegal immigrants -- something Obama is widely thought...

    Senate Democrats are now explicitly saying they will try to use Boehner’s border bill as a vehicle for broad, “Gang of 8″ style amnesty, and immigration activists are urging them on. All the more reason to call ((202) 224-3121). A House vote on Boehner’s bill is expected Thursday. Beware a Boehner Supertrap: Today (Tuesday 7/29) looks like Crunch Day for the House when it comes to finalizing a pre-August bill to deal with the surge of Central American immigrants coming across the Southern border. Aides to Speaker Boehner have been blowing a lot of smoke about how Republicans are desperate...
