    The Democratic Party of Virginia is currently giving away free tickets to an event featuring Hillary Clinton later tonight. Clinton is headlining the party's annual Jefferson-Jackson dinner on Friday evening. Though the event is raising money for the Virginia Democrats rather than her presidential bid, it is considered an important campaign appearance for Clinton. The dinner is Clinton's first campaign stop in Virginia, a crucial swing state. It's also one of her first stops outside of the early primary states. Tickets for the event are being sold for $30 and $125. However, on Friday afternoon, some Virginia Democrats received an...

    Received the following this morning in an e-mail Court Martialed for Bible Verse "A Christian woman in the military has been court martialed for her faith. Marine Lance Corporal Sterling was convicted over a Bible verse. She placed the verse, "No weapon formed against me shall prosper," (Isaiah 54:17) on her desk. Her commanding officer told her to take down the Bible verse, calling it a profanity that we will not repeat here. When she refused to comply with this unbelievably unlawful order, the officer threw the verse in the trash and had her court martialed. Even worse, the court...

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ozfaLzjjZyEBritish atheist writer and comedian Pat Condell's latest YouTube video targets American progressives who seek to sabotage the First Amendment in a desire to criminalize speech they deem offensive. With his tongue planted firmly in cheek, Condell delivers a scathing, though humorous, rebuke of Americans who are sitting on the sidelines watching their fundamental birthright being purged before their very eyes in the name of progress. His British perspective is unique as he admits his home country has long since bullied the right to free speech out of its citizens. "The progressive tide is coming in, America, and it's looking...

She highlighted the testimony of Brenton Lowak, whose friend Jessica Ghawi -- a 24-year-old aspiring sports reporter -- died in the shooting. ~snip~ The parents unsuccessfully sued the retailers who made the firearm that killed their daughter. Colorado state law requires that plaintiffs who sue the manufacturers of gun products pay the companies' legal fees if they lose. “That’s not a typo,” Maddow said, adding, “The mother and father of the victim who died in the Aurora mass shooting have just been ordered to pay a quarter-million dollars...

    Early in President Obama’s tenure in the White House, Catholic Online and other media outlets reported what appeared to be a deliberate attack on the Constitution’s “freedom of religion” protections. The report noted a crucial change in Obama’s language between his June 2009 speech in Cairo, Egypt, where he spoke of a Muslim America and its “freedom of religion,” to the November 2009 memorial for the Fort Hood soldiers gunned down by a radical Muslim, where he termed it “freedom of worship.” From that point on, “freedom of worship” has become the term of choice, the report said. Now, the...

And now a close aide to the 9/11 mastermind is also on tap for release. After already freeing an al-Qaida bomb maker last month — over the objections of U.S. intelligence, which warned, "He would be capable of re-engaging as an explosives expert or trainer" — the parole board that Obama set up to clear out Gitmo is now poised to rubber-stamp for release a close associate of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed.

    Nearly nine in 10 people who signed up for healthcare from the federal government this year qualify for subsidies, the Obama administration announced Tuesday. A total of 7.7 million people would receive subsidies this year in the roughly three-dozen states using HealthCare.gov – a figure that has held steady since ObamaCare's first year. The Obama administration touted the figure Tuesday to show that the vast majority of people in states using the federal exchange rely on subsidies as the Supreme Court weighs a case that could eliminate them. A total of 34 states using HealthCare.gov could lose subsidies if the...

Schumer, D-N.Y., made the recommendation Sunday, noting that the CDC says at least 102 people have contracted measles in 14 states, including New York and New Jersey, so far this year. There was a record number of cases last year — 644 in 27 states. “It’s clear that we need to get on top of this highly contagious disease before it becomes too big for us to control,” Schumer told reporters, including...

And a lot of people just don’t have enough money to fully partake of this nation’s abundance.” Biden criticized past efforts to try to solve the problem by handing out government benefits to the poor. “No...

The IRS has now granted these recipients of excessive federal benefits a one-year holiday. Even though they clearly owe the overpayment for 2014, they will effectively not have to, and no doubt won’t, pay the money back because they will not face any penalty if they do not pay it immediately.

"We also have to make sure that everybody has the opportunity to constantly train themselves for better jobs, better wages, better benefits." The proposal drew an immediate critical response from House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, who said, "with no details or information on the cost, this seems more like a talking point...

Some are even already referring to the free vehicle program as “The Obama Car.”

    The city of Berkeley will require medical marijuana dispensaries to give away two percent of the amount of cannabis they sell each year free to low-income patients. The City Council voted unanimously at Tuesday’s meeting to amend the city’s medical pot rules, which would also allow for a fourth dispensary in Berkeley. Under the proposal, at least two percent of all medical weed dispensed at a club would have to be provided at no cost to very low-income members — and it must be the same quality that’s dispensed to regular paying customers.

In passing that law, Durbin said Democrats "rejected the free enterprise approach to health care and said let´s have something that basically respects families." He also criticized Republicans for embracing free enterprise: "Let me tell you a free enterprise idea when it came to health care. Before

Chick-Fil-a staffers braved the falling snow and ice, slipping and sliding, as they offered their famous hot juicy chicken breasts tucked between two...

So many writers use some liberal progressive meme like anthropomorphic global warming or a future without money as everybody works for enlightenment or self-actualization.

    (CNSNews.com) - Fearing that many people will think they have health insurance coverage when they do not, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is "urging" insurance companies to "give consumers additional time to pay their first month's premium and still have coverage beginning Jan. 1, 2014." Insurance companies should cover people who haven't yet paid, in other words. With just a few weeks to go until Obamacare takes full effect, Sebelius announced additional changes on Thursday, some that tell insurance companies how to run their business and others that "strongly" encourage insurance companies to waive their rules -- on...

    A majority of women are unaware that birth control is available for free from health insurance plans under Obamacare—even as the Supreme Court is likely to soon consider legal fights over that law. And while lack of awareness about the so-called "contraception mandate" might reflect overall, widespread confusion about Obamacare's details, an expert who has been following the issue said it also reflects the fact that pharmaceutical companies aren't advertising that their contraceptives could be effectively obtained free by many women.

    The White House is "as sorry as we can be" that a Washington state woman held up as an example of the success of the Affordable Care Act marketplaces appears to be falling through the cracks, press secretary Jay Carney said Tuesday. In mid-October, President Obama cited single mother Jessica Sanford as an exchange success story after she wrote to him after being able to sign up for insurance in early October. She's since learned that her state's system miscalculated her tax credit and that her out-of-pocket costs will be substantially higher than expected.

    Are Liberals Afraid to Be Free? Something in the 3rd week’s Q & A session of Hillsdale College’s Economy 101 Online Course caused a new thought about Liberals. Why Liberals are willing to give up on the Constitution has always puzzled me. For years, I’ve believed that correctly informed Liberals would abandon their progressive agendas in favor of constitutional government. Part of my reason for believing this is that I observe many people who were once Liberal and are now Conservatives but rarely see a Conservative who is now Liberal. Dr. Gary Wolfram offered an interesting perspective while discussing how...

    Springhill Police Chief Will Lynd confirms they were called in to help the employees at Walmart because there were so many people clearing off the shelves. He says Walmart was so packed, “It was worse than any black Friday” that he’s ever seen. Lynd explained the cards weren’t showing limits and they called corporate Walmart, whose spokesman said to let the people use the cards anyway. From 7 to 9 p.m., people were loading up their carts, but when the cards began showing limits again around 9, one woman was detained because she rang up a bill of $700.00 and...

    Andy Mitchell, medical director for National Health Service (NHS) England in London said, “At times, throughout the week, even throughout the day, services aren’t safe”. Mitchell’s admission comes after the NHS Confederation said the service will soon be “unsustainable” if radical reforms are not presented before the next general election. The top health officials said the NHS is currently facing "the most challenging period in its 65-year existence,” and that the service might not be able to provide free health care for all patients any more. “Demand continues to rise, drugs cost more, and NHS inflation is higher than general...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Dr. Drew Pinsky was on Anderson Cooper 222 last night. Anderson Cooper said to Drew Pinsky, "I don't know all the details of what exactly is covered. It's an incredibly confusing thing. I spent all day reading about it." This is about Obamacare. Drew Pinsky talked about the people he treats and deals with and what they think about it. PINSKY: There's a really another interesting layer to this that people aren't talking about. Today, I often spend a lot of my time finding resources for people who don't have insurance. So today I had three calls....
