    So, I find myself sitting around a patio table next Independence Day sipping on the perfect mimosa with some friends and a couple of folks I haven’t met before. One of the new acquaintances brings up the subject of “climate change.” I know from the term used that this one is probably a sorta believer but not a hard-core, unshakable advocate; were that so, he would have used the latest, hippest, most with-it name-change term “climate disruption.” Now it’s time for my Favorite Global Warmism Question #1:

    Free Beacon ^ | 5/14/14 | staff
    Sen. John Thune (R., S.D.) questioned Health and Human Services Secretary nominee Sylvia Burwell Wednesday about the Obama administration’s call on exempting specific union plans from Obamacare’s reinsurance tax. Burwell is the current White House director of the Office of Management and Budget. “I’m simply saying is that as a matter of fairness in the way that this is implemented, carving out favored groups shouldn’t be the modus operandi,” Thune said. “We ought to be going about this in a way that treats everybody fairly under the law, and I don’t think you can argue based on the number of...

    In a Friday interview with talk radio host Chris Stigall, former-CBS investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson explained how the White House can sometimes get questions in advance of the daily briefing. When a reporter asks the White House something, "they will [sometimes] be told ‘ask that at the briefing and we’ll answer it,’" Attkisson explained, adding, "They [The White House] want to answer it in front of everybody. They do know it’s coming and they’ll call on you." Attkisson was commenting on a Thursday story about White House Spokesman Jay Carney allegedly telling a reporter (Carney denied saying this) that he...

    White House Press Secretary Jay Carney denied on Thursday a television news reporter´s day-old claim that reporters often ´provide the questions to him in advance,´ before his daily briefings, and that he sometimes provides answers on paper before taking the podium. WIthin hours, the Phoenix reporter at the center of a quick-drying controversy admitted she got the whole thing wrong. Phoenix news anchor Catherine Anaya reported Wednesday night on KPHO-TV5 that in an ´off the record´ meeting, Carney had told a handful of local TV reporters that White House correspondents often tell him before daily briefings what they´ll be asking.

Daniel Halper March 20, 2014 8:43 AM A CBS reporter from Arizona reveals that President Obama's press secretary, Jay Carney, receives questions from the press in advance of his daily press briefing.

    One of the bigger mistakes people make in reading Scripture is that they read it as a spectator. For them Scripture is a collection of stories and events that took place thousands of years ago. True enough, we are reading historical accounts.But, truth be told these ancient stories are our stories. We are in the narrative. You are Abraham, Sarah, Moses, Deborah, Jeremiah, Ruth, Peter, Paul, Magdalene, Mother Mary, and, if you are prepared to accept it, you are also Jesus.

    Rep. Ann Kuster (D-N.H.) at a town hall meeting refused to answers questions about last year’s deadly terror attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya. The New Hampshire representative appeared to try to dodge the question by saying Benghazi isn’t in the Middle East, and therefore not pertinent to the discussion at hand. “I’m certainly not here to talk about it, we’re here to talk about the Middle East,” Kuster said in response to an attendee’s written question. Libya is located in north Africa. Differing definitions place it either inside or outside the Middle East. Regardless, the crowd...

Tapper's was the first and only major report to appear in the MSM, and CNN will air a special on Benghazigate tonight at 10:00 PM EDT. It should be a "must watch" for anyone interested in understanding the event, its genesis, and its consequences. The MSM (except in a blog here) has not touched Tapper's report, and the special may serve as a second prod to get its members off their collective duffs. One little fact Tapper's...

John Fleming (R-La.), who was a family physician before coming to Congress in 2009, argued on Wednesday that doctors have no right to ask patients about their status as gun owners, as an executive order from President Obama would encourage them to do. "I came to Congress as a family physician with great concerns about the federal government intruding on the doctor-patient relationship," Fleming said. "By his executive actions today, President Obama is pushing the government further into the exam room. "He's trying...

    After more than nine weeks of trying to reconcile their story line with that of the State Department and the CIA, the Pentagon finally released its timeline of the Libya terror attack during a Friday afternoon, off-camera briefing with an official who could only be quoted anonymously. The news was overtaken almost immediately by the announcement that Gen. David Petraeus had resigned, purportedly due to an extramarital affair. He was slated to testify in closed-door hearings on Capitol Hill this coming week before the Senate and House intelligence committees. Petraeus no longer plans to testify. However, while the Petraeus resignation...

    There is evidence that the people involved in the attack on Benghazi (or at least one of them) fled Libya. Where was he (they) home-based? Was the attack just from some angry local Islamic rebels or from a nation state? Could Iran have been involved in some way? What about Syria? We know enough to believe that Ambassador Stevens was involved in brokering arms to Syrian rebels via Turkey. What was Russia’s part in this? Knowing that Russia is our opponent in Syria, is the US failure to send help to our people related to a desire not to offend...

    Debate moderators and reporters love to ask pro-life candidates hard questions about abortion. Curiously, they don’t do the same for pro-choice candidates.

Are there any restrictions you would approve of? 2. In 2010, The Economist featured a cover story on “the war on girls” and the growth of “gendercide” in the world – abortion based solely on the sex of the baby. Does this phenomenon pose...

"I've read your brief, I've read the District Court opinion, I've heard your interchange with my two colleagues, and I don't understand your argument," Noonan told deputy solicitor general Edwin S. Kneedler. "We are dependent as a court on counsel being responsive. . . . You keep saying the problem is that a state officer is told to do something. That's not a matter of preemption. . . ....

But that kind of scenario might not be appropriate even for a brainstorming session, according to a prominent communication professor at American University in Washington, D.C. "If journalists are making bad jokes about what they hope to find at a rally, that sounds inappropriate," Jane Hall said.

Terry Jones in Florida has suggested he too has a constitutional right to burn the Quran to send a message, yet you’ve implored him not to – because it will anger and offend some Muslims. Do you worry some Americans might question why you don’t...

    Family and pediatrician tangle over gun question It was a question Amber Ullman least expected Wednesday from her children's pediatrician. Do you keep a gun in the house? When the 26-year-old Summerfield woman refused to answer, the Ocala doctor finished her child's examination and told her she had 30 days to find a new pediatrician and that she wasn't welcome at Children's Health of Ocala anymore. "Whether I have a gun has nothing to do with the health of my child," said the mother of three girls. more> http://www.ocala.com/article/20100724/ARTICLES/7241001/1402/NEWS?Title=Family-and-pediatrician-tangle-over-gun-question
