    DOTHAN, Ala. — On a humid summer day in 1972, Hillary Rodham walked into this town’s new private academy, a couple of cinder-block classrooms erected hurriedly amid fields of farmland, and pretended to be someone else. Playing down her flat Chicago accent, she told the school’s guidance counselor that her husband had just taken a job in Dothan, that they were a churchgoing family and that they were looking for a school for their son
  • Scarborough: Biased Debate Moderators Haven't Been Problem in the Past

    When this NewsBuster began preparing today's item, the focus was going to be on Joe Scarborough's statement on today's Morning Joe that "90% of the people in our business vote for Democrats and Democratic primaries." Not that it was something we didn't already know [though query whether even 10% of MSMers are Republicans], but refreshing to hear it so starkly stated. But preparing the video clip, something more stunning emerged. Scarborough actually suggested that the problem of biased debate moderators is something new: "this is not something we've had a problem with in the past." Say what? Do the names...
  • But Did Obamacare REALLY Save A Kid With A Tumor

    Daily Caller ^ | Connor D. Wolf
    When the U.S. Supreme Court upheld Obamacare Thursday, President Barack Obama spoke of the time he met a mom whose son was saved thanks to the law. But when asked to explain the story, the White House went silent. “And they’ve told me that it has changed their lives for the better,” the president declared. “I’ve had moms come up and say, my son was able to see a doctor and get diagnosed, and catch a tumor early, and he’s alive today because of this law. This law is working. And it’s going to keep doing just that.” After the...
  • Organizer claims he “didn’t know” that Boston Pride was a homosexual group

    One of the most outrageous – and prominent -- homosexual activist groups in the state was given permission at the last minute to march in the Boston St. Patrick’s Day Parade. Later the parade organizer said he didn’t know they were a “gay” group when he let them in. This preposterous alibi has only served to outrage faithful Catholics even more. On Friday, March 13 (two days before the parade) the Boston media erupted with the story that a second homosexual group, Boston Pride, would be marching. Unlike OutVets, the other homosexual group given permission back in December, Boston Pride...

    Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton Extend Run as Most Admired by Jeffrey M. Jones Story Highlights Hillary Clinton is most admired woman for 17th time in 18 years Barack Obama is most admired man for 7th year in a row PRINCETON, N.J. -- Americans continue to name Hillary Clinton as the woman living anywhere in the world whom they admire most, and name Barack Obama as the man they admire most. Clinton has held the top women's spot in each of the last 13 years and 17 of the last 18, with that streak interrupted only by first lady Laura Bush...
  • "How Hobby Lobby Split the Left and Set Back Gay Rights" (The Atlantic)

    The Atlantic ^ | 7/21/14 | Molly Bally
    In the Hobby Lobby decision handed down last month, the Supreme Court was asked to strike a balance between women’s rights and religious freedom. But the major conflict that has erupted in the wake of that decision has been between religious freedom and gay rights. The resulting controversy has split gay-rights and faith groups on the left, with wide-ranging political fallout that some now fear could hurt both causes. One chapter of the controversy is set to close on Monday, when President Obama plans to sign a long-awaited executive order banning federal contractors from discriminating against gays and lesbians, according...

    David Remnick of The New Yorker showed up on PBS’s Charlie Rose Monday night to discuss his long, mostly sympathetic profile of Barack Obama from the January 27 issue of the magazine. Near the end of the interview, Rose focused in on the president’s reported desire to be “big.” The host wondered, “[W]hat's his definition of 'big,' and does he believe in his deep recesses of his own mind that the chance of that has slipped away?” Remnick replied that no, Obama does not think his chance of being “big” has slipped away. The editor then rattled off a laundry...

    The next time you hear someone dispute that human activity is destabilizing our climate, remember this pie chart. It represents geochemist James Lawrence Powell's review of 2,258 peer-reviewed scientific articles about climate change, written by 9,136 authors, published between Nov. 12, 2012 and December 31, 2013. Of all those hundreds of papers and thousands of researchers, Powell found one article, authored by a single scientist, that attributed climate change to something other than human actions: "The Role of Solar Activity in Global Warming," by S.V. Avakyan, appearing in the Herald of the Russian Academy of Science, Vol. 83, No. 3....

    From 60 Minutes last night: Susan Rice: Lesley, it’s been worth what we’ve done to protect the United States. And the fact that we have not had a successful attack on our homeland since 9/11 should not be diminished. But that does not mean that everything we’re doing as of the present ought to be done the same way in the future.

    ABC’s Barbara Walters did another in a series of sycophantic gushing and fawning interviews with the Obamas Friday. **SNIP** Well into the 20/20 interview, Mrs. Obama said, “He did talk about wanting to help people, and that inspires me and us to think about how we can keep having impact beyond ourselves.” The President responded, “I did promise her an interesting life.” This led the First Lady to say, “That he did. And, you know, he keeps his promises.”

    PoliticusUSA - Real Liberal Politics ^ | November 1, 2013 | Sarah Jones
    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)For weeks I’ve been wondering why no one is talking about how Republicans sabotaged the ACA rollout by refusing to implement state run marketplaces, and thus unexpectedly forcing all of that additional burden on to the federal website. It reminded me of Republicans denying security funding for Benghazi and then blaming Obama and Clinton for the lack of security in Benghazi. The media were oddly uninterested in that alarming fact. But today, Todd Purdum at Politico exposed how Republicans sabotaged the ACA rollout. One small part of their plan was the rejection of the state run exchanges. But also, Purdum...

    A renowned expert on world terrorism says the deadly blasts that rocked Boston have all the earmarks of a domestic attack — not unlike Timothy McVeigh’s 1995 truck-bomb explosion in Oklahoma City. “It’s interesting the timing of this event,’’ Dr. Harvey Kushner told Newsmax TV’s “The Steve Malzberg Show. “It’s Patriot’s Day, Tax Day. It’s a holiday in Boston and we’re coming up on what was the Oklahoma City bombing April 19th, and also the Battle of Lexington, which started the American Revolution. “A lot of domestic terrorist organizations used to key in on that date, April 19. And Boston...

    A few salient facts are known about the Americans whose lives might be changed by a Supreme Court ruling on same-sex marriage expected this summer. About one in five gay and lesbian couples are raising children that are under age 18. Same-sex couples are less likely than traditional married couples to have health insurance covering them both. One in 10 men with a male partner or spouse is a military veteran. As many as 6 million Americans, roughly 2 percent of the population, have a parent who is lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender. These nuggets of demographic insight into same-sex...

    Education Secretary Arne Duncan tried Friday to explain his claim that teachers have already been laid off because of sequestration –– all he'd meant to say was that teachers have been warned about layoffs tied to the federal spending cuts. "Let me be really, really clear about this, we're getting caught in the details here: What I said was that teachers were getting notices. In the district we talked about, 110 teachers have gotten notices," he said during a question-and-answer session at Rolling Terrace Elementary School in Takoma Park, Md., just outside the District of Columbia. "Now I think there...

    A nearly three-year-long investigation by Senate Intelligence Committee Democrats is expected to find there is little evidence the harsh "enhanced interrogation techniques" the CIA used on high-value prisoners produced counter-terrorism breakthroughs. People familiar with the inquiry said committee investigators, who have been poring over records from the administration of President George W. Bush, believe they do not substantiate claims by some Bush supporters that the harsh interrogations led to counter-terrorism coups. The backers of such techniques, which include "water-boarding," sleep deprivation and other practices critics call torture, maintain they have led to the disruption of major terror plots and the...
