    President Barack Obama must show a willingness to cut back the healthcare reform law during budget negotiations, says House Speaker John Boehner. President Obama has won re-election, but his healthcare law is still driving up costs and making it harder for small businesses to hire workers. As was the case before the election, Obamacare has to go, Boehner writes in the Cincinnati Enquirer. The presidents health care law adds a massive, expensive, unworkable government program at a time when our national debt already exceeds the size of our countrys entire economy. We cant afford it, and we cant afford to...

    Matt Lauer, host of the "Today" show, may be leaving the show involuntarily according to a report published by Radar Online on Wednesday. Radar reported that a inside source said the writing was on the wall for Lauer, 54, who has often been blamed for the departure of long time co-host turned lead-host, Ann Curry, in June. Since the time Curry was fired from her position, numerous rumors have emerged about Lauer's inability to get along with staff and his need to be surrounded by "yes" men and women. The source said, "His years-long feuds with former co-hosts Katie Couric,...

    Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Virginia has received government funding that enables it to expand its systematic sexualization and degradation of 9th graders in the Newport News public schools with risk reduction sex education. The money comes from the $75 million pool set aside as a part of Obamacare to teach the Personal Responsibility Education Program (PREP).The PREP money is setting students up for disaster as it enables Planned Parenthood and other organizations access to the most vulnerable youth across the nation. The curriculum being used in Newport News, Virginia, is distributed by ETR Associates, formerly the education department of Planned...
  • WH Won't Release Photos of Obama Team During Benghazi Attacks

    Today, the White House officially refused to release photos of US officials during the September 11 terrorist attacks on our consulate in Benghazi, Libya, that ended with the deaths of four Americans. CBS News requested the photos on October 31; the White House has routinely released photos showing members of the Obama administration in their hero poses during national security crises. That happened most famously with pictures of the Obama administration key players clustered into the White House situation room during the raid on Osama Bin Ladens compound in Pakistan.

    Commentary ^ | December 2012 | John Podhoretz
    It is a mark of how entirely bereft of ideas the 2012 contest was that the post-election analysis has come to center not on what Barack Obama will do in his second term—which is really the only thing that matters now—but rather on the condition and fate of the Republican Party. Obama won a historic victory in some respects: If you had said two years ago that the president could win reelection with an unemployment rate of 7.9 percent and 4 million fewer people in the workforce than when he was elected, most analysts would have called you crazy. Even...

    Two Maine news anchors resigned together at the end of Tuesdays broadcast after a longstanding battle with upper management over journalistic practices including being expected to do politically unbalanced news, the Bangor Daily News reported. Cindy Michaels and Tony Consiglio announced at the end of WVII-TVs 6 p.m. newscast that it would be their final broadcast together. And finally tonight, this will be Tony and my final show together here on ABC 7, Michaels said. The last six years have been an interesting and enjoyable time for both of us as we have been the longest running news team in...

    Al Gore Warns of 'Planetary Emergency' Again by Wynton Hall 21 Nov 2012, 1:09 PM PDT In a recent interview, former Vice President Al Gore sounded the alarm of an impending "planetary emergency" if the Keystone Pipeline gets approved or if plans for Northwest coal export terminals proceed. "We have a planetary emergency," said Mr. Gore. "I know it drives some people nuts when I say that, but dammit, thats what we face." This is not the first time Mr. Gore has declared the human race to be facing a "planetary emergency": he's made the exact same claim in 2005,...

    אני יודע שישנם אזרחים שמצפים לפעולה צבאית חריפה עוד יותר, וייתכן מאוד שנידרש לה, אבל בעת הזאת, הדבר הנכון למדינת ישראל הוא למצות את ההזדמנות הזאת להשיג הפסקת אש מתמשכת. כראש ממשלה מוטלת עליי האחריות – והיא אחריות עליונה – לעשות את הצעדים הנכונים לשמור על ביטחוננו. כך נהגתי, כך אמשיך לנהוג. I realize that there are citizens who expect a harsher military action and we may very well need to do that. But at present, the right thing for the State of Israel is to exhaust this possibility of reaching a long-term cease-fire. As Prime Minister, I have...

    Hobby Lobby, a Christian-owned and run company, is fighting back against a judge’s decision siding with the Obama administration saying that it has the right to force it to pay for drugs for women that may cause abortions.The privately held retail chain with more than 500 arts and crafts stores in 41 states filed a lawsuit against the Obama administration over its HHS mandate. The company says it would face $1.3 million in fines on a daily basis starting in January if it fails to comply with the mandate, which requires religious employers to pay for or refer women for...

    Sac Bee ^ | 11/21/2012 | Kevin Yamamura
    State environmental leaders this week hailed California's first cap-and-trade auction a success, but it was hardly so for the state budget. Gov. Jerry Brown and state lawmakers assumed three auctions this fiscal year would generate $1 billion total for the state, half of which they want to plug the state budget deficit. But most of the $289 million raised this month is dedicated for utilities and their ratepayers, leaving only $55.8 million for state purposes.

  • 'Happy Days' Star: Elmo Creator Has Talent, Ignore Sex Abuse Allegations

    Henry Winkler of "Happy Days" fame is considered one of the nicest people in Hollywood. You don't hear any horror stories about his on-set behavior, and he's managed to leave the iconic Fonzie character behind to play supporting roles in projects like "Arrested Development" and "Here Comes the Boom." Winkler's reaction to puppeteer Kevin Clash resigning from "Sesame Street" amid allegations the puppeteer engaged in sexual acts with minors hardly seemed in character. In fact, Winkler's comment is downright ugly. No one is disputing Clash's talents. Just watch last year's documentary "Being Elmo" to marvel at his many gifts. But...

    Muslim immigrants in a town near Copenhagen have forced the cancellation of traditional Christmas displays this year even while spending lavishly on the Islamic Eid celebration marking the end of Ramadan. The controversy has escalated into an angry nationwide debate over the role of Islam in post-Christian Denmark, where a burgeoning Muslim population is becoming increasingly assertive in imposing its will on a wide range of social and civic issues.

    St. Paul Pioneer Press ^ | 11/20/12 | Joe Soucheray
    Probably what will happen next -- if, in fact, it is not already happening -- is that stores will serve their customers a complete Thanksgiving meal. Forward-thinking entrepreneurs could set up a lounge with flat-screen TVs, and that's where the men can watch football while the women shop. They could occasionally meet back at the table and graze over a dessert buffet before the women head back out into the aisles. The need to shop early after Thanksgiving is peculiarly American and apparently speaks to the need of getting a deal. Last week, in El Cajon, Calif., women were already...

    In the aftermath of the re-election of President Barack Obama, conservatives searched the heavens and the earth for answers. Some suggested that Mitt Romney lost because Republicans didn't reach out more to Latino voters; some suggested that Romney lost because his "get out the vote" system fell apart on Election Day. Romney himself said that he lost because President Obama separated voting groups with particularly calibrated "gifts" designed to curry their favor. In truth, Mitt Romney lost for the same reason that traditional marriage lost on Election Day: America is becoming a less religious country. And that bodes ill for...

    The federal government has issued a series of sweeping new rules and regulations surrounding Obamacarebenefits that health-industry experts fear could end up costing Americans more. Betsy McCaughey, a former New York lieutenant governor under George Pataki and author of Decoding the Obamacare Law, told Newsmax the new rules and regulations will cost consumers more. Meanwhile, companies with 50 or more employees will have a choice of sponsoring a health plan for 100 percent of their workers or paying an annual penalty of $2000. One study shows a third of those employers with 50 or more workers may opt...

    While the soap opera All the Generals Girls currently occupies the top spot in the Washington, DC ratings wars, the Benghazi Chronicles, with U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice in a starring role, continues to enjoy strong ratings as it should. Former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney played it safe during the campaign -- refusing to press the many questions surrounding the September 11th fatal attacks on the American diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya. The campaign was the perfect forum from which to demand and obtain answers to questions about why the United States was so poorly prepared for the violent...
