    OTTAWA, January 21, 2014 (LifeSiteNews.com) - African media is reporting that a state visit by Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan to Canada planned for February has been canceled by the Canadian government because Jonathan signed his country’s controversial homosexuality law. The law imposes a 14-year prison sentence on anyone who enters a “same-sex marriage contract or civil union” or aids and abets such an action. It also bans public displays of affection between homosexuals, along with gay clubs and organizations. SaharaReporters.com reports that sources in Abuja said the Nigerian ambassador to Canada, Ojo Madueke, was told by an undisclosed Canadian official...

    (CNSNews.com) - "I don't need a teleprompter," Vice President Joe Biden said as he rose to speak at a Martin Luther King Jr. Day Breakfast in Washington on Monday. He then launched into a speech full of political anecdotes, memories of his early activism in the civil rights movement, and indignation about alleged attempts to curb voting rights. Biden said he got involved in the civil rights movement "when I was just a kid." "The issue that really got me involved in the first place -- I was the only white kid working in the East Side (of Scranton, Pa.)...I...

    It’s not too difficult to understand that we are well on our way to a paradigm shift in America; in fact we’re in the midst of it right now. The writing is on the wall and can no longer be ignored. The US government has run up trillions of dollars in debt, and given the recent debates over the country’s debt ceiling, we can rest assured that neither Congress nor the President will act to curtail spending and balance the budget. We will continue adding trillions of dollars to the national debt clock until such time that our creditors no...

    It is striking how many of the acts of jihad and Islamic violence are committed by converts. Hundreds of converts have fled to Syria, Sudan and Somalia to wage jihad. Why aren’t converts to Islam inspired to, say, cure cancer? Fight for women’s rights? Further science? Islamic honor killing is a religious imperative under Islam. Muslims commit 91 percent of honor killings worldwide. The Role of the Mosque and the Muslim Community in an Honor Killing And yet even in death, the victim is violated again, as the motive is denied or refused.

    It’s less than comforting to hear the President make light of terrorist threats. In a recent interview with The New Yorker, President Obama referred to today’s al-Qaeda fighters as the “jayvee” team. “The analogy we use around here sometimes, and I think is accurate, is if a jayvee team puts on Lakers uniforms that doesn’t make them Kobe Bryant,” he said. This shows that the Administration’s wishful thinking about al-Qaeda isn’t over. Obama and his fellow officials seem to think if you say something enough times, it will become true. Before Benghazi, they claimed al-Qaeda was defeated and on the...

    WASHINGTON, D.C., January 17, 2014 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Broken families and multiple sex partners lead to more abortions, according to a new report unveiled Wednesday by the Family Research Council. The report, co-authored by the Family Research Council's Marriage and Religion Research Institute (MARRI) director, Pat Fagan, Ph.D., and Visiting Fellow Scott Talkington, Ph.D., was based on data from the National Survey of Family Growth (NSFG). It found that almost 90 percent of women admitting to at least one abortion have had at least three sexual partners. Women from intact families had an abortion rate 10 percent lower than women from...

    Late yesterday, Washington lawmakers dropped a massive, 1,582-page spending bill that will fund the entire government for fiscal year 2014. Known as the omnibus spending bill, the gigantic legislative text works off a budget deal that set spending at $1.012 trillion—$45 billion more than previous spending caps that were agreed upon by a bipartisan majority in 2011. In other words, your tax dollars will fund this bloated spending bill, which adds to the nation’s debt of $17 trillion. With so much at stake, The Foundry has posted the actual bill for you to read. Last night and into the early...

    House Oversight Committee chairman Representative Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) said that a recent news report outlines how the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) is using tactics that amount to “Fast and Furious revisited” in a bid to increase support for the Obama Administration’s gun control crusade. During a Sunday program on Fox News, Issa discussed a recent report by the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel which details how ATF agents operating stings in six different cities “took advantage of the mentally ill, set up stings near churches and schools and made decisions which some claim actually increased crime in their neighborhoods.” “This...

    Iran's "moderate" president, Hassan Rouhani, tweeted this morning that "world powers," including the U.S., had "surrendered" to the "Iranian nation's will" in confirming a six-month interim nuclear deal that will allow the Iranian regime to continue its advanced centrifuge program and develop a new nuclear facility at Arak. President Barack Obama, meanwhile, implored Americans to "give peace a chance" with the Iran deal. Though the Obama administration claims that the interim deal--which includes a secret side deal--will lead Iran to give up any ambitions of becoming a nuclear power, the regime has publicly declared that the agreement reached in Geneva...

    (CNSNews.com) - Former U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood says unless Congress acts, the Highway Trust Fund will run out of money at the end of fiscal 2014 -- "because people are driving less, driving more fuel-efficient cars, and the gas tax hasn't been raised in many years." Monies in the Trust Fund fund -- derived mostly from excise taxes on gasoline and other fuels -- fund the federal government's highway and mass transit projects. "And if Congress doesn't step up and either increase the gas tax, they will have to take the money out of the general fund. And the...

    Passing bills to find out what’s in them… that was so 2010, right? Sadly, no. Any day now, Congress is likely to release the trillion-dollar Trojan horse that is the spending bill for 2014. It’s going to be big, and it’s going to be rushed. And few members of Congress (if any) are going to read it all. Government budgeting isn’t supposed to be done this way. It takes 12 spending bills to fund the entire government. But in an omnibus—the type of bill experts are expecting—Congress throws all of those together and just votes once on the whole thing....

    Yes, Obamacare has raised premiums, caused people to lose their health coverage, raised taxes, and more. But on January 1, Obamacare started digging in for the long haul: putting down the deep roots of entitlement programs. Entitlements—like the big three of Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid—are the biggest causes of America’s spending and debt crisis. And Obamacare creates a new entitlement program while expanding another. The creation of a new entitlement: Taxpayer-funded subsidies for millions of Americans Obamacare created insurance exchanges to sell and subsidize government-approved health care plans.

According to “Financial and Sovereign Debt Crises: Some Lessons Learned and Those Forgotten,” a working paper written by two Harvard economists who used to work at the IMF, “there are essentially five ways to reduce large debt-to-GDP ratios: 1. Economic growth; 2. Fiscal adjustment- austerity; 3 .Explicit default or restructuring; 4. Inflation surprise;...

    Conservative Firing Line ^ | December 30, 2013 | Diane Sori
    Serious stuff here folks as Benjamin Netanyahu warned Obama, warned the P5+1, and warned John ‘Swiftboat’ Kerry before any of them agreed to that ridiculous deal last month in Geneva… warned them that Iran cannot ever be trusted…but did they listen…in a word…NO. And now Iran’s hard-line lawmakers…lawmakers who oppose the deal reached in Geneva and who are being fueled on by their war-mongering mullahs in response to a planned but NOT yet passed or implemented legislation by US Senators to actually add additional sanctions…have drafted a bill to increase the country’s level of uranium enrichment to 60%…a level that...

    First, let me say that I don’t want to hear anything from the homosexuals, their supporters, supporters of polygamy or any other perversion of God ordained sexuality. We told you this was coming and it has arrived. Researchers with Canada’s Centre for Addiction and Mental Health have concluded, after a decade of research, that pedophilia is a deep-rooted, unchangeable predisposition. The Toronto Star reports: Pedophilia has been widely viewed as a psychological disorder triggered by early childhood trauma. Now, many experts see it as a biologically rooted condition that does not change — like a sexual orientation — thanks largely...
  • Time to Stock Up on Incandescent Bulbs Before They Go Out Permanently

    If your New Year’s resolution is to change your light bulbs, don’t worry—the federal government’s here to help. Beginning January 1, 2014, the federal government will ban the use of 60-watt and 40-watt incandescent light bulbs. The light bulb has become a symbol in the fight for consumer freedom and against unnecessary governmental interference into the lives of the American people. 2007, Congress passed and President George W. Bush signed into law an energy bill that placed stringent efficiency requirements on ordinary incandescent bulbs in an attempt to have them completely eliminated by 2014. The law phased out 100-watt and...

    American progressives like to think of their country as backward and reactionary compared to Europe. And they have never been more right than now when Europe and the rest of the First World have gone right while America under Obama has been left back. Recently Australia, Japan and Norway welcomed in conservative governments. Tony Abbott, Australia’s new prime minister, is a former heavyweight boxer who attended Oxford and is putting a spoke in the wheel of the Global Warming ecohoax. Japan is casting off its pacifism and standing up to the People’s Republic of China and Norway gave its left-wing...
  • Kwanzaa: just about gone from everywhere but “inner city” public schools and liberal schemes

    Coach Is Right ^ | December 26, 2013 | Kevin Collins
    Last year Ann Coulter wrote that Kwanzaa was only observed by “presidential–statement writers and white female public school teachers.” She was almost right. Kwanzaa is celebrated by a few groups but none of which are more well represented than white female liberal public school teachers (WFLPST). This is true because most public schools are closed during Kwanzaa season and of course the teachers don’t work during the week of December 26 to January 1st. Consequently, all but the hardest of hard core leftists will blow off Kwanzaa. The hard core Left cannot resist an opportunity to tell Black Americans what...

    “America, they will always get away with what you let them get away with!" – Bradlee Dean Just the other day I was scanning the Internet to see what was going on in our world, and lo and behold a man named Larry Brinkin popped up before my eyes. For those that do not know his name, Larry Brinkin is a “gay rights”icon. Brinkin is a career lawyer and a homosexual activist who was crowned by the homosexual community when he led the effort to legalize same-sex “marriage” in California. He is also the man that was making $135,000 per...

    <p>It took years for Watergate to unravel fully. The controversy over Barack Hussein Obama and his past, along with fraudulent documents continues to make headlines. Yet, the items needed to actually verify who Obama is continue to be kept from the public eye. Well, that all may be about to change. Attorney Orly Taitz may have just found a chink in the federal government’s armor in protecting Barack Obama from scrutiny, following a judge’s ruling over her Freedom of Information Act request from the Social Security Administration.</p>
  • ObamaCare’s New Year’s Day Surprise: Deep Cuts to Medicare

    AMAC ^ | 12/18/2013 | Andrew Mangione
    As if ObamaCare’s botched website, coverage cancellations, and higher costs were not bad enough, the Obama Administration has quietly dealt yet another blow – this time striking millions of the nation’s most vulnerable seniors. Specifically, the Obama Administration has decided to deeply cut funding for the Medicare program’s home health benefit as a way to help pay for ObamaCare. The Administration made this announcement very quietly, waiting to do so until the very end of the last Friday before Thanksgiving, perhaps thinking that most people would not be looking. To be sure, the timing of the Administration’s quiet announcement did...

    Let’s face it: There is something very, very wrong with kids today. It seems as though there are hordes of young psychopaths running around, wreaking havoc on others. Two recent examples, and the reasons that I refer to these young people as psychopaths, are the “Knockout Game” in which a mob of youths target a random victim and punch him or her in the face, hoping to knock them unconscious with one blow, and the boy in Texas who got away with the murder of 4 innocent people because he was too wealthy to be punished like a normal...

    10) Only in America ... could politicians talk about the greed of the rich at a $35,000.00 a plate campaign fund-raising event. 9) Only in America ... could people claim that the government still discriminates against black Americans when they have a black President, a black Attorney General and roughly 20% of the federal work force is black while only 14% of the population is black. 40+% of all federal entitlements go to black Americans – 3X the rate that go to whites, 5X the rate that go to Hispanics! 8) Only in America ... could they have had the...
