    MADRID - It took the White House more than seven years to lock in Spain on President Barack Obama's foreign travel schedule. But events beyond Mr. Obama's control have turned his first and only visit to Spain, the largest European country that had yet to welcome the president, into a rushed one. Instead of spending two days sightseeing in southern Spain and tending to more official business in the capital of Madrid, the White House scrapped some of Mr. Obama's events - including a staple of his foreign travels, a question-and-answer forum with young adults - and crammed the rest...

    Note to AFTAH readers: the following is a list of President Barack Obama's homosexual-bisexual-transgender agenda "achievements," produced by Human Rights Campaign, the world's most powerful and well-funded LGBT lobby organization. [See the original HRC report on PDF HERE.] Even close followers of Obama's socially left agenda will be surprised by the magnitude of his LGBT record. We have bolded some of the more important Obama actions-note especially #28 and #33 in which Obama undermined the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), thus accelerating the legal momentum for legalized same-sex "marriage." ______________________ HRC reports: "Summary of President Obama's Commitment to LGBT...

    We were scheduled to attend a luncheon-function last Saturday; but we woke up tired to a very gray day, and weren't feeling terribly sociable; so we decided to ditch our plans, and go off on our own :-) First, we were hungry. Someone on last week's cooking thread had mentioned pulled pork, and I was hankering for it; so we thought we'd check out a new eatery in the neighborhood: Mission Barbecue. Decent BBQ places are few and far between in our area - the best local one was bought-out by a larger firm a couple of years ago, and...

    Taya Kyle, wife of "American Sniper" Chris Kyle, hit President Obama with a truth bomb on gun control laws during his CNN town hall Thursday. Kyle, who was famously touched by gun violence when her husband Chris was killed by a man he was trying to help, told the president she understood his message of hope, but feared his new regulations on guns were giving people a false sense of hope.

    According to a new report from the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, Obamacare is set to erase the equivalent of 2 million jobs over the next ten years. At a time when the economy is tottering on the edge of recovery, the report shows that true recovery will not happen as long as this healthcare law is in effect. The CBO report does not predict that the jobs themselves will be lost. Rather, they said that new expansions and mandates would encourage many employees to drop out of the workforce voluntarily. "Some people would choose to work fewer hours; others would...

    Over the past 24 hours, the Internet has exploded with commentary and armchair analysis on the riots in Baltimore. The civil unrest started just hours after the funeral of Freddie Gray, a citizen whose spinal cord was injured mysteriously while in the back of a police van. Gray, an African American, died on April 19. At a press conference on Friday, BPD Commissioner Anthony Batts admitted at least one glaring failure of his department: that Gray did not get the medical care he ought to have received while in police custody. Batts, a self-described reformist, forcefully asserted that hes doing...

  • Tell Obama to Cease FDA Ties to Monsanto

    President Obama, I oppose your appointment of Michael Taylor, a former VP and Lobbyist for Monsanto, the widely criticized Genetically Modified (GM) food multinational, as Senior Advisor to the Commissioner at the FDA. Taylor is the same person who was Food Safety Czar at the FDA when Genetically Modified Organisms were allowed into the US food supply without undergoing a single test to determine their safety or risks. This is a travesty. Taylor was in charge of policy for Monsanto's now-discredited GM Bovine Growth Hormone (rBGH) which is directly linked to cancer and opposed by many medical and hospital organizations.

Being a capitalist I've always operated on the theory that if they still make fruitcake...

Hence, Earth in its entirety can be considered considered a slow nuclear reactor with its solid inner core providing a major contribution to the total energy output. Since radionic heat is generated in the entire volume and cooling can only occur at the surface, the highest temperature inside Earth occurs at the center of the inner core. Overheating the center of the inner core reactor due to the so-called greenhouse effect on the surface of Earth may cause a meltdown condition, an enrichment of nuclear fuel and...

    WASHINGTON, (AP) -- An anti-war Democratic congressman is demanding to know why there were uniformed Defense Department personnel watching House proceedings from a public gallery Thursday, who they were and what they were doing.

"With Stark's courageous public announcement of his nontheism, it is our hope that he will become an inspiration for others who have hidden their conclusions for far too long," the group's executive director, Roy Speckhardt, said in a statement. Stark's beliefs garnered...
