Texas City To Militant Atheist Group Demanding They Don’t Pray Before Meetings: Go Pound Sand- God Bless Texas!

Texas City Stands up to Atheists Over Prayers at Government Meetings

New American

The Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) appears to be losing its intimidating touch as it goes about its business of trying to stop people from praying and expressing their faith in public. The atheist group’s latest attack has come against the city council of League City, Texas, which has included prayer by local clergy in its regular government meetings since the early 1960s.

In a July 15 letter to Mayor Tim Paulissen and the League City Council, the FFRF went through its customary paces in attempting to browbeat the city fathers into submission. Appealing to the First Amendment’s supposed “separation of state and church,” the godless group’s staff attorney, Elizabeth Cavell, called the city’s tradition of allowing both local residents and government officials to open the meetings in prayer of “dubious legality,” insisting that such prayers are “unnecessary, inappropriate, and divisive.”

Cavell advised that while government officials “are free to pray privately or to worship on their own time in their own way,” they “do not need to worship on taxpayers’ time.” Cavell complained that inviting council members and locals to offer invocations at the government meetings “is coercive and beyond the authority of any government.”

While citing a selection of court cases to buttress the FFRF’s case against public prayer, Cavell conceded that there is no clear precedent for her group to demand that the city end its tradition, since courts have issued conflicting opinions that make the legal landscape on the issue “unstable.” The only warning she could muster was that prayer at government meetings “continues to be litigated, divisive, and problematic for local governments across the nation precisely because of this instability.”

She dubiously suggested that the “best course” for the city would be “to halt the prayers. If you wish to pray prior to the meeting, do so on your own time in your own way — do not make it part of the secular business of your local government.”

As it happened, Mayor Paulissen and the city council appeared to be disinclined to follow the FFRF’s self-serving advice. Paulissen told the Houston Chronicle that he and the other city fathers had no plans to drop the 52-year tradition of opening council meetings with an invocation.

Thank you Texas, so many cities do not stand up to those trying to do this.

Krauthammer: Obama Acts like “He’s been out of the Country for Five Years;” “It’s His Economy – He’s the President”

Charles Krauthammer explaining, essentially, the “Limbaugh Theorem.” Krauthammer was talking about how crazy it is to see Barack Obama running around the country making speeches on the Economy as if he’s “been out of the country for five years” and just now returned to find the Economy in shambles. In actuality, “it’s his Economy,” Krauthammer said, the result of “his policies.”

Rush Limbaugh has said for months now that this is all a strategy by Obama to never been seen as governing – to not actually be connected with his own policies. Instead, Obama is always running as an outsider, when the truth is that his policies are to blame for the mess the country is in.

Obama's First Love BIG Government.....Obama: “Economy Would Be Much Better Off” With More Government Workers

Obama: “Economy Would Be Much Better Off” With More Government Workers

Barack Obama – citing the job losses since he took office — said “the economy would be much better off,” unemployment would be 6.5 percent and the national deficit would be in decline if there were more federal, state and local government workers.

“If those layoffs had not happened, if public sector employees grew like they did in the past two recessions, the unemployment rate would be 6.5 instead of 7.5,” Obama said. “Our economy would be much better off, and the deficit would still be going down because we would be getting more tax revenue.”

Obama spoke Tuesday at the Amazon Fulfillment Center in Chattanooga, Tenn., where he promoted plans he said would help the middle class such as corporate tax reform, increased federal spending on infrastructure, more education spending, public-private partnerships and rolling back the sequester.

Obama worships big government, controlling government,the kind communists, socialists, Marxists etc. have loved. With him at the helm of course.

Allen West: “As Conservatives, We Don’t Care About The Color of Your Skin, We Care About The Color of Our Flag”

Allen West: “As Conservatives, We Don’t Care About The Color of Your Skin, We Care About The Color of Our Flag”

Allen West headed to Amsterdam Tuesday to embark on National Review’s conservative summer cruise, saying he owes his success as a “young black man” to the nature of his character.

“I was invited to be a guest speaker with a premier assembly of conservative thinkers,” the Republican wrote. “Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. would be proud to know that a young black man born and raised in his same neighborhood rose based upon character. It is this equality of opportunity that is great about America … not President Obama’s phony rhetoric of inequality which is no more than equality of outcomes — social egalitarianism.”

Mr. West has been particularly vocal about racial tension since George Zimmerman was acquitted more than two weeks ago in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.

“I would hope William F. Buckley Jr. and Dr. King are smiling above as the embodiment of conservatism and the civil rights movement has come to fruition. The nature of conservatism is that it sees no color. The nature of liberal progressivism is that color is all it sees,” he concluded.

On Sunday, Mr. West wrote, “as conservatives, we don’t care about the color of your skin, we care about the color of our flag.”

LOL Good Grief! ....Congressional Black Caucus Recommends Obama Nominate Sheila Jackson Lee As Next DHS Secretary

Congressional Black Caucus Recommends Obama Nominate Sheila Jackson Lee As Next DHS Secretary

Houston Chronicle

Conservative bloggers went wild Monday when they got wind of the Congressional Black Caucus’ suggestion that President Obama pick Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee of Houston for the post of Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security.

Rich Cooper, avid blogger for Security Debrief, responded to the news of the Jackson Lee recommendation in a post by saying, “Apparently, it is not a joke. For reasons that baffle any sense of reality, it is a serious gesture on the part of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) to encourage President Obama to nominate Rep. Jackson Lee as a replacement for outgoing-DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano.”

A letter dated July 25 and signed by CBC Chairwoman Rep. Marcia Fudge, an Ohio Democrat, urges President Barack Obama to consider Jackson Lee for the position formerly held by Janet Napolitano, the first woman to hold the position. Napolitano resigned earlier this month to become president of the University of California.

“Representative Jackson Lee would serve as an effective DHS Secretary because she understands the importance of increasing border security and maintaining homeland security,” the nomination letter reads.

Since entering Congress in 1995, Jackson Lee has served on several committees, including Foreign Affairs, Judiciary and Homeland Security, in which she was the Chairwoman of the Homeland Security Subcommittee on Transportation Security and Infrastructure Protection.

“As Chairwoman, Representative Jackson Lee supported increased airplane cargo inspections and increased security for railroads, issues of great importance to the security of this nation and its citizens,” the letter continues.

CNN To Produce Hillary Clinton Propaganda Film

CNN To Produce Hillary Clinton Propaganda Film

CNN Films has tapped documentary filmmaker Charles H. Ferguson to direct a film about former Sec. of State Hillary Clinton, POLITICO has learned.

“CNN is very pleased to be working with Academy-Award winner Charles Ferguson on the film, which will be released in theaters and air on CNN,” Allison Gollust, the network’s senior vice president of communications, told POLITICO on Monday. The release date has yet to be determined.

The film adds yet another installment to the growing list of Hillary-related television projects and books slated for release before the 2016 presidential campaign. But is also presents a potential image problem for CNN’s News division as it covers Clinton in the run up to her highly anticipated bid for the White House.

Gollust told POLITICO, “CNN’s editorial side has no role in the production of the film, just as it has no role in any of the films produced or acquired by CNN Films.”

Nevertheless, the project could cause some headaches for CNN as it seeks to ensure both Clinton’s opponents and her supporters that the project will have no bearing on the network’s news reporting. Conservatives will likely criticize CNN for devoting so much airtime to a Democratic candidate, while the Clinton campaign is likely to take issue with the network for dedicating so much of its energy to their candidate, rather than her likely competitors.

Wild Thing's comment.................

So it begins, CNN pushed Obama non stop and now they will push Hillary. It is disgraceful how a once news source has become nothing more then a propaganda machine for the left.

Obama Martha's Vineyard Vacation at $7.6M Private Resort, Over 75 Rooms Booked for Staff

Obama Martha's Vineyard Vacation at $7.6M Private Resort, Over 75 Rooms Booked for Staff

FOX Nation

The Massachusetts island of Martha's Vineyard, the exclusive playground for presidents and their families, is about to get its annual summer infusion of cash and attention as President Obama and his family prepare to arrive August 10 for an eight-day vacation.

Local reports indicate that the first family will likely be staying at a $7.6 million resort home on southern edge of the island in the town of Chilmark where homes feature water access to Chilmark Pond, tennis courts and swimming pools.

Staying at the home of Chicago corporate finance manager David Schulte is a break from past Obama vacations because the $21 million home they've rented, Blue Heron Farm, isn't available. Schulte's summer home sits on nine and a half acres, has ocean views and a basketball court.

It was renovated 10 years ago by Rick Sundberg/Olson Kundig Architects, which is bragging about the Obama visit on the company's website.

While the president typically keeps to himself and carries with him only a handful of staffers to Martha's Vineyard, security will be tight. As in the past, the Wesley Hotel in Oak Bluffs will house security and communications officials.

The owner told the Vineyard Gazette that the Secret Service has booked 70 rooms and another five have been reserved for the Transportation Security Agency. Rates at the hotel run from $225-$345.

Wild Thing's comment............

As far as I know he and his family have spent more then any other president.

Obama Secretly Releases Five Taliban Prisoners From Gitmo In Exchange for Peace Talks

Obama Secretly Releases Five Taliban Prisoners From Gitmo In Exchange for Peace Talks


Without much publicity or official announcements, the Unites States released five Guantanamo Bay detainees as a nod of willingness to open peace talks in Afghanistan. After officials in Kabul expressed desire for negotiations, the Obama administration released five members of the Taliban who were detained at the US detention center.

A top US official said that the prisoners were released under the condition that they will not engage in any violent activity. While it is clear that they are guilty of crime, the benefit in releasing them—the potential withdrawal of US forces from Afghanistan by the summer of 2014—is greater than the risk. The US announced it will attempt to negotiate peace talks with the Taliban and Afghanistan government officials some months ago.

Wild Thing's comment.............

LOL sorry but this just strikes me as how dumb can one person be. If a promise not to be violent from a terrorist is all it takes then we better bring home all our troops from all around the world fighting terrorists and just make the bad guys promise not to be violent.

Former Ambassador Ann Wagner…Benghazi Stand Down Order Came From Obama

Former Ambassador Ann Wagner…Benghazi Stand Down Order Came From Obama

Congresswoman and former United States Ambassador to Luxembourg Ann Wagner (R-MO) appeared on The Dana Loesch show and placed the blame, of the stand down order to those that could have offered assistance to Americans under attack, on none other than Barack Obama.

Loesch asked Wagner, “Because you have been an ambassador, you have been overseas with similar responsibilities and similar missions – who gives such an order to stand down? Where does that come from?”

“The President of the United States,” the Missouri congresswoman affirmed.

As top diplomat in Libya Gregory Hicks testified to on Wednesday before the House Oversight Committee, “The Libyans that I talked to, and the Libyans and other Americans who were involved in the war have told me also, that Libyan revolutionaries were very cognizant of the impact that American and NATO airpower had with respect to their victory.”

“They are under no illusions that American and NATO airpower won that war for them,” Hicks continued. “And so, in my personal opinion, a fast mover flying over Benghazi at some point, you know, as soon as possible might very well have prevented some of the bad things that happened that night.”

He went on to add, “if we had been able to scramble a fighter or aircraft or two over Benghazi as quickly as possible after the attack commenced” — around 9:30 that night — “I believe there would not have been a mortar attack on the annex in the morning because I believe the Libyans would have split. They would have been scared to death that we would have gotten a laser on them and killed them.”

In fact, Hicks suggested that the Libyans would have granted the US permission to fly their planes directly over their airspace. “If we had been able to scramble a fighter or aircraft or two over Benghazi as quickly as possible after the attack commenced. I believe there would not have been a mortar attack on the annex in the morning because I believe the Libyans would have split. They would have been scared to death that we would have gotten a laser on them and killed them.”

Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) said that personnel “may not have arrived in time to save lives, but at the time the decision was made, the decision was wrong.”

Representative Jason Chaffetz (R-UT), a member of the committee also said that “military personnel were ready willing and able, and within proximity, but the Pentagon told them they had no authority and to stand down.”

I wrote back at the end of October of the reports coming out that there were calls for “military support and help because they were taking fire at the CIA safe house, or annex. The request was denied. There were no communications problems at the annex, according those present at the compound. The team was in constant radio contact with their headquarters. In fact, at least one member of the team was on the roof of the annex manning a heavy machine gun when mortars were fired at the CIA compound. The security officer had a laser on the target that was firing and repeatedly requested back-up support from a Spectre gunship, which is commonly used by U.S. Special Operations forces to provide support to Special Operations teams on the ground involved in intense firefights.”

We know from testimony this week that Defense Secretary Leon Panetta’s statement that “The U.S. military did not get involved during the attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya, last month because officials did not have enough information about what was going on before the attack was over” was not true. They did know. They knew in real time. There was no way they would not have known, but Panetta testified that Obama was simply absent on the night of the Benghazi attacks. In fact, the White House received several emails indicating what was going on and yet Obama would not authorize any help.

While Chris Stevens was appointed as a diplomat to Libya in 2007 under President George W. Bush, he was named ambassador under Barack Obama. Now stop and think about that for a moment. If Obama will just let one of his appointees, a U.S. ambassador, die at the hands of Islamists, how much do you think he cares about American citizens? I’m guessing not too much.

Over and over, this comes back to one person, Barack Hussein Obama. He is the one that over and over in his first days in office had to beat the drum that he was the “Commander-in-chief” and don’t you people forget it! Well, I say Mr. Obama needs to own up to his dereliction of duty, which resulted in the deaths of four Americans.

American Hero Col. Bud Day Passes Away at 88 – He Stood Up For America & Against John Kerry

American Hero Col. Bud Day Passes away at 88 – He Stood Up For America & Against John Kerry

Retired Col. George “Bud” Day, a Medal of Honor recipient who spent 5½ years as a POW in Vietnam and was Arizona Sen. John McCain’s cellmate, has died at the age of 88, his widow said Sunday.

FORT WALTON BEACH - USAF COL (ret.) George E. "Bud" Day, a Medal of Honor winner, a WWII Marine, and Vietnam POW, passed away early Saturday morning in Ft. Walton Beach.

His wife, children and grandchildren were present. They had communion before Bud passed away.

The funeral is expected to be Thursday at the Emerald Coast Conference Center with burial at Barancas National Cemetery in Pensacola.

Day, one of the nation’s most highly decorated servicemen since Gen. Douglas MacArthur and later a tireless advocate for veterans’ rights, died Saturday surrounded by family at his home in Shalimar, after a long illness, Doris Day said.


George Everett "Bud" Day (born February 24, 1925) is a retired U.S. Air Force Colonel and Command Pilot who served during the Vietnam War. He is often cited as being the most decorated U.S. service member since General Douglas MacArthur, having received some seventy decorations, a majority for actions in combat. Day is a recipient of the Medal of Honor.

Day was born in Sioux City, Iowa, on February 24, 1925. In 1942 he quit high school and enlisted in the United States Marine Corps. He served 30 months in the North Pacific during World War II as a member of a 5 in (130 mm) gun battery with the 3rd Defense Battalion on Johnston Island.

After the war, Day attended Morningside College on the G.I. Bill, earning a Bachelor of Science Degree, followed by law school at the University of South Dakota, receiving a Juris Doctor. Day passed the bar exam in 1949 and was admitted to the bar in South Dakota. In later life, Day was also awarded a Master of Arts degree from St. Louis University, a Doctor of Humane Letters from Morningside, and a Doctor of Laws from Troy State University. Day was admitted to the Florida Bar in 1977.

A member of the Army Reserve, in 1950 he received a direct commission as a Second Lieutenant in the Iowa Air National Guard, and was called to active duty in 1951 for Undergraduate Pilot Training. He served two tours as a fighter-bomber pilot during the Korean War flying the Republic F-84 Thunderjet, surviving a "no-chute" ejection in 1955. Promoted to captain, he decided to make the Air Force a career and was augmented into the Regular Air Force, and transitioned to the F-100 Super Sabre in 1957 while stationed at RAF Wethersfield.

Anticipating retirement in 1968 and now a major, Day volunteered for a tour in Vietnam and was assigned to the 31st Tactical Fighter Wing at Tuy Hoa Air Base in April 1967. At that time he had more than 5,000 flying hours, with 4,500 of them in fighters. On June 25, 1967, with extensive previous service flying two tours in F-100s, Major Day was made the first commander of Detachment 1, 416th Tactical Fighter Squadron, 37th Tactical Fighter Wing based at Phu Cat Air Base. Under the project name "Commando Sabre", twin-seat USAF F-100Fs were evaluated as a Fast Forward Air Control ("Fast FAC") aircraft in high threat areas, given that F-4 Phantom II aircraft were in high demand for strike and Combat Air Patrol (CAP) roles. Using the call sign Misty, the name of Day's favorite song, his detachment of two-seat F-100Fs and 16 pilots became pioneer "Fast FACs": Forward Air Controllers over Laos and North Vietnam. All Misty FAC crews were volunteers with at least 100 combat missions in Vietnam and 1,000 minimum flight hours.

Prisoner of war

On August 26, 1967, Major Day was flying F-100F-15-NA, AF Serial No. 56-3954, call sign "Misty 01",[2] on his 26th Fast FAC sortie, directing a flight of F-105 Thunderchiefs in an air strike against a surface-to-air missile (SAM) site north of Thon Cam Son and west of Dong Hoi, 20 mi (32 km) north of the DMZ in North Vietnam. Day was on his 65th mission into North Vietnam and acting as check pilot for Captain Corwin M. "Kipp" Kippenhan,

who was upgrading to aircraft commander. 37 mm antiaircraft fire crippled the aircraft, forcing the crew to eject. In the ejection, Day's right arm was broken in three places when he struck the side of the cockpit, and he also experienced eye and back injuries.

Kippenhan was rescued by a USAF HH-3E, but Day was unable to contact the rescue helicopter by survival radio and was quickly captured by North Vietnamese local militia. On his fifth night, when he was still within 20 mi (32 km) of the DMZ, Day escaped from his initial captors despite his serious injuries. Although stripped of both his boots and flight suit, Day crossed the Demilitarized Zone back into South Vietnam, becoming the only U.S. prisoner of war to escape from North Vietnam. Within 2 mi (3 km) of the U.S. Marine firebase at Con Thien and after 12–15 days of evading, he was captured again, this time by a Viet Cong patrol that wounded him in the leg and hand with gunfire.

Taken back to his original camp, Day was tortured for escaping, breaking his right arm again. He then was moved to several prison camps near Hanoi, where he was periodically beaten, starved, and tortured. In December 1967, Day shared a cell with Navy Lieutenant Commander and future Senator and Presidential Candidate John S. McCain III who was even more seriously injured and emaciated. Air Force Major Norris Overly nursed both back to health, and McCain later devised a makeshift splint of bamboo and rags that helped heal Day's seriously atrophied arm.

On March 14, 1973, Day was released after five years and seven months as a North Vietnamese prisoner. Within three days Day was reunited with his wife, Doris Sorensen Day, and four children at March Air Force Base, California. On March 4, 1976, President Gerald Ford awarded Day the Medal of Honor for his personal bravery while a captive in North Vietnam.

Day had been promoted to Colonel while a prisoner, and decided to remain in the Air Force in hopes of being promoted to Brigadier General. Although initially too weak to resume operational flying, he spent a year in physical rehabilitation and with 13 separate medical waivers, was returned to active flying status. He underwent conversion training to the F-4 Phantom II and was appointed vice commander of the 33rd Tactical Fighter Wing at Eglin Air Force Base, Florida.


After being passed over for nomination to brigadier general, Day retired from active duty in 1977 to resume his practice of law in Florida. At his retirement he had nearly 8,000 total flying hours, 4,900 in single engine jets, and had flown the F-80 Shooting Star, F-84 Thunderjet, F-100 Super Sabre, F-101 Voodoo, F-104 Starfighter, F-105 Thunderchief, F-106 Delta Dart, F-4 Phantom II, A-4 Skyhawk, A-7 Corsair II, CF-5 Tiger, F-15 Eagle,jet fighters.

Following his retirement, Day wrote an autobiographical account of his experiences as a prisoner of war, Return with Honor, followed by Duty, Honor, Country, which updated his autobiography to include his post-Air Force years. Among other endeavors, in 1996 Day filed a class action lawsuit for breach of contract against the United States government on behalf of military retirees who were stripped of their military medical care benefits at age 65 and told to apply for Medicare. Although winning the case in the district court in 2001, the judgment against the U.S. was overturned by the U.S. Court of Appeals in 2002. The U.S. Congress later redressed this situation by establishing the "TRICARE For Life" (TFL) program, which restored TRICARE military medical benefits for career military retirees over the age of 65, making the retirees eligible for both programs with Medicare as the primary payer and TRICARE as the secondary payer.

Day is an active member of the Florida Republican Party, was actively involved in the 527 group Swift Vets and POWs for Truth, and actively campaigned with John McCain in 2000 and 2008.

Medal of Honor citation

Rank and organization: Colonel (then Major), U.S. Air Force, Forward Air Controller Pilot of an F-100 aircraft.
Place and date: North Vietnam, 26 August 1967.
Entered service at: Sioux City, Iowa.
Born: 24 February 1925, Sioux City, Iowa.

Citation: On 26 August 1967, Col. Day was forced to eject from his aircraft over North Vietnam when it was hit by ground fire. His right arm was broken in 3 places, and his left knee was badly sprained. He was immediately captured by hostile forces and taken to a prison camp where he was interrogated and severely tortured. After causing the guards to relax their vigilance, Col. Day escaped into the jungle and began the trek toward South Vietnam. Despite injuries inflicted by fragments of a bomb or rocket, he continued southward surviving only on a few berries and uncooked frogs. He successfully evaded enemy patrols and reached the Ben Hai River, where he encountered U.S. artillery barrages. With the aid of a bamboo log float, Col. Day swam across the river and entered the demilitarized zone. Due to delirium, he lost his sense of direction and wandered aimlessly for several days. After several unsuccessful attempts to signal U.S. aircraft, he was ambushed and recaptured by the Viet Cong, sustaining gunshot wounds to his left hand and thigh. He was returned to the prison from which he had escaped and later was moved to Hanoi after giving his captors false information to questions put before him. Physically, Col. Day was totally debilitated and unable to perform even the simplest task for himself. Despite his many injuries, he continued to offer maximum resistance. His personal bravery in the face of deadly enemy pressure was significant in saving the lives of fellow aviators who were still flying against the enemy. Col. Day's conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty are in keeping with the highest traditions of the U.S. Air Force and reflect great credit upon himself and the U.S. Armed Forces.

Air Force Cross citation

The Air Force Cross is presented to George Everett Day, Colonel, United States Air Force, for extraordinary heroism in military operations against an opposing armed force as a Prisoner of War in North Vietnam from 16 July 1969 to 14 October 1969. During this period, Colonel Day was subjected to maximum punishment and torture by Vietnamese guards to obtain a detailed confession of escape plans, policies, and orders of the American senior ranking officer in the camp, and the communications methods used by the Americans interned in the camp. Colonel Day withstood this punishment and gave nothing of value to the Vietnamese, although he sustained many injuries and open wounds to his body. Through his extraordinary heroism and willpower, in the face of the enemy, Colonel Day reflected the highest credit upon himself and the United States Air Force.

Taxes and more taxes to feed Obama's Propaganda! Obama: “Race Relations Won’t Get Better, May Get Worse” Unless We Redistribute More Wealth

Obama: “Race Relations Won’t Get Better, May Get Worse” Unless We Redistribute More Wealth

Obama said that if economic prescriptions of the type he supports to increase economic growth and reduce “income inequality” are not adopted, then race relations in the United State may deteriorate further.

“If we don’t do anything, then growth will be slower than it should be. Unemployment will not go down as fast as it should. Income inequality will continue to rise,” Obama said in an interview published today by the New York Times. “Racial tensions won’t get better; they may get worse, because people will feel as if they’ve got to compete with some other group to get scraps from a shrinking pot. If the economy is growing, everybody feels invested, ” he said.

Obama said Americans in recent decades have lost a sense of security, feeling that a chance at upward mobility is being denied them. He railed against the deficit hawks in the Republican Party, suggesting cuts were being made to quickly and without proper discretion, and that “vital investments” must be preserved.

Total Insanity from Obama!!! Obama Says Keystone Pipeline May INCREASE Gas Prices

Obama Says Keystone Pipeline May INCREASE Gas Prices

The Hill

Obama said the proposed Keystone XL oil sands pipeline would not be a major job creator and could increase gasoline prices, but added that the White House decision will rest on climate change.

“Republicans have said that this would be a big jobs generator. There is no evidence that that’s true,” Obama said in a New York Times interview published Saturday.
Obama, in some of his most extensive remarks ever on the pipeline, also said Canada could “potentially be doing more” to curb emissions from the oil sands.

His comments follow his closely watched late June pledge that Keystone XL would only receive a federal permit if the “net” effects of the pipeline would not “significantly exacerbate” carbon pollution.

Obama reiterated that threshold in the newly published interview and said that would be the basis for his decision.

“I meant what I said; I’m going to evaluate this based on whether or not this is going to significantly contribute to carbon in our atmosphere. And there is no doubt that Canada at the source in those tar sands could potentially be doing more to mitigate carbon release,” he said.

CVS Pharmacies To Join Obama Thugs Push Obamacare

CVS will help promote Obamacare

CVS Caremark is joining the effort to encourage Americans to sign up for Obamacare insurance programs, company executives announced Thursday.

CVS officials told POLITICO that they’re planning to use pharmacies at their 7,400 North American stores as a gateway for the uninsured to learn about new coverage options — especially subsidized insurance coverage available to low-income people on state-based insurance exchanges.

“Half of people who are eligible for a subsidy don’t know they’re eligible,” Helena Foulkes, chief health care strategy and marketing officer at CVS Caremark, said in an interview.

Foulkes said CVS pharmacies would invite trained “navigators” into their stores to help eligible people sign up for exchanges. The company also plans to plug the health law at 375 health care fairs around the country, particularly in areas with high rates of uninsured people and large minority populations.

Baby Killing Planned Parenthood Could Have Access To Your Sensitive Information Thanks To Its Work On Obamacare

Planned Parenthood could have access to citizens’ sensitive information through Obamacare’s Federal Data Hub

As the Obama administration frantically tries to enlist the help of organizations to promote the Affordable Care Act, Planned Parenthood could be one of several groups with access to citizens’ sensitive information in the Federal Data Hub.

According to The Illinois Typepad Review, if the organization is granted funding through the Department of Health and Human Services’ $54 million in navigator grants, the nonprofit will have access to Obamacare’s Federal Data Hub. The database contains citizens’ information collected from the Treasury Department, Internal Revenue Service, Department of Homeland Security and Department of Justice, and includes Social Security numbers.

Though these navigators have yet to be named, Planned Parenthood is likely to be one. [...]

Planned Parenthood has already signed on to promote the healthcare law, as POLITICO previously reported, and some affiliates will apply for HHS’ navigator grants, the news outlet stated last month. The deadline to apply for the funding was June 7, but the agency has yet to announce all the organizations receiving the awards.

Obama Ties Vietnamese Communist Leader Ho Chi Minh To America’s Founding Fathers,Ho Chi Minh Led Effot That Killed Almost 60,000 Americans

Obama Ties Vietnamese Communist Leader Ho Chi Minh To America’s Founding Fathers -Ho Chi Minh led North Vietnam’s war effort that ultimately killed almost 60,000 Americans.

Obama hailed hard-core communist revolutionary Ho Chi Minh today as a pretty open guy who was actually inspired by the Founders.

Obama took a break from his jobs-pivot speeches to meet Vietnamese President Truong Tan Sang at the White House. The pair held joint remarks in the Oval Office afterward.

Obama said their first bilateral meeting “represents the steady progression and strengthening of the relationship between our two countries.” [...]

Obama said Sang concluded the meeting by sharing “a copy of a letter sent by Ho Chi Minh to Harry Truman.”

“And we discussed the fact that Ho Chi Minh was actually inspired by the U.S. Declaration of Independence and Constitution, and the words of Thomas Jefferson. Ho Chi Minh talks about his interest in cooperation with the United States. And President Sang indicated that even if it’s 67 years later, it’s good that we’re still making progress.”

Sang said the pair “had a very candid, open, useful and constructive discussion.”

“In a candid, open and constructive spirit, we have come to agree on many issues. We will strengthen high-level exchanges between the two countries. We will consider in order to continue our — to upgrade the mechanism of cooperation at the high level, as well as take the best use of the existing mechanism of cooperation. Particularly, we will continue regular dialogue at the highest level as possible,” the Vietnamese leader continued. “I believe that this is the way in order to build a political trust for further development of our cooperation in all areas.”

Sang invited Obama to come pay a visit. “And President Obama has accepted our invitation and will try his best to pay a visit to Vietnam during his term,” he said.

Wild Thing's comment...................

Evil Obama I hate you. Get that very clear in your ugly ass head you communist. He is the most vile president our country has ever had.

Obama Regime Demanding Internet Companies Turn Over User Account Passwords

Obama Regime Demanding Internet Companies Turn Over User Account Passwords

The U.S. government has demanded that major Internet companies divulge users’ stored passwords, according to two industry sources familiar with these orders, which represent an escalation in surveillance techniques that has not previously been disclosed.

If the government is able to determine a person’s password, which is typically stored in encrypted form, the credential could be used to log in to an account to peruse confidential correspondence or even impersonate the user. Obtaining it also would aid in deciphering encrypted devices in situations where passwords are reused.

“I’ve certainly seen them ask for passwords,” said one Internet industry source who spoke on condition of anonymity. “We push back.”

A second person who has worked at a large Silicon Valley company confirmed that it received legal requests from the federal government for stored passwords. Companies “really heavily scrutinize” these requests, the person said. “There’s a lot of ‘over my dead body.’”

Some of the government orders demand not only a user’s password but also the encryption algorithm and the so-called salt, according to a person familiar with the requests. A salt is a random string of letters or numbers used to make it more difficult to reverse the encryption process and determine the original password. Other orders demand the secret question codes often associated with user accounts.

A Microsoft spokesperson would not say whether the company has received such requests from the government. But when asked whether Microsoft would divulge passwords, salts, or algorithms, the spokesperson replied: “No, we don’t, and we can’t see a circumstance in which we would provide it.”

Google also declined to disclose whether it had received requests for those types of data. But a spokesperson said the company has “never” turned over a user’s encrypted password, and that it has a legal team that frequently pushes back against requests that are fishing expeditions or are otherwise problematic. “We take the privacy and security of our users very seriously,” the spokesperson said.

Apple, Yahoo, Facebook, AOL, Verizon, AT&T, Time Warner Cable, and Comcast did not respond to queries about whether they have received requests for users’ passwords and how they would respond to them.

Richard Lovejoy, a director of the Opera Software subsidiary that operates FastMail, said he doesn’t recall receiving any such requests but that the company still has a relatively small number of users compared with its larger rivals. Because of that, he said, “we don’t get a high volume” of U.S. government demands.

Every day there is something from Obama that is disturbing and shows how much he wants total control over our lives.

I don't even understand why they would want to know unless they were going to impersonate us and say things we would not say. It is just too weird and yet it does show how much they want to control lives.

College Republicans Denied Admittance to Obama Speech

College Republicans Denied Admittance to Obama Speech

Obama was bound to receive a warm response from the audience attending his speech at the University of Central Missouri yesterday — because some students who disagreed with him weren’t allowed into the building.

Christopher White of The College Fix reports that students wearing “Tea Party T-Shirts and others who wore patriotic or Republican-inspired clothing” were turned away at the door under the guise of security concerns, despite the fact that they held tickets to the event.

I’d like to offer a helpful tip to all College Republicans who hope to attend an Obama speech in the future: Odds of admission improve if you wear a Che Guevara t-shirt, an “I Heart Kim Jong Un” campaign button, and/or a ballcap displaying the slogan “Obama Girl” prominently above the brim.

College Republicans Deemed Security Threat, Refused Entrance to Obama’s Campus Speech

Ten College Republicans were dubbed a security threat and refused admittance to President Barack Obama’s speech at the University of Central Missouri on Wednesday.

Despite the fact that the students had tickets to the event, security personnel turned them away at the door to the recreation center where Obama gave a speech on economic policy, telling the group it wasn’t about their politics but the president’s safety, State Treasurer of the College Republicans Courtney Scott told The College Fix.

The students, some of whom donned Tea Party T-Shirts and others who wore patriotic or Republican-inspired clothing, had protested the president earlier in the day on campus, but had put away their signs and said they were ready to simply listen to Obama when security shut them down – and even told them to leave the vicinity and stay several hundred yards away from the rec center.

The students had waited in a long line and under the hot sun to wind their way to the front of the line two hours in advance of Obama’s scheduled 5:30 p.m. remarks. Still, they were rejected.

“It just didn’t make any sense,” Scott told The Fix. “A lot of us traveled several hours to watch the speech. We were very disappointed not to be able to attend.”

The small group of College Republicans were confused as to why such extreme security precautions were directed at them – but not at the 2,500 other audience members who were granted admission to the event, Scott said.

Victims of Obama’s “Phony Scandals” Remark Speak Out: “The Only Thing ‘Phony’ is the Narrative” Obama is Pushing

Victims of Obama’s “Phony Scandals” Remark Speak Out: “The Only Thing ‘Phony’ is the Narrative” Obama is Pushing

Barack Obama may think the multiple scandals that are engulfing his Presidency are “phony” and “fake,” but the victims of those scandals do not agree. Here are some of them speaking out today on Fox News with Stuart Varney.

Tea Party victim Becky Gerritson had it right. She said “The only thing phony is the narrative” Obama is trying to push off onto the American people.

Pat Smith – mother of Sean Smith, who died in the Benghazi Terrorist Attack, said she still has received no answers from Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, or ANYONE in Obama’s Administration as to why there was not sufficient security at the consulate there, and why no rescue mission was allowed during the more than 7 hour attack that killed her son. She said she will continue to speak out, and zeroed in particularly on Hillary Clinton, saying she will stand up and call her out on Benghazi if she runs for President in 2016.

NY Democrat Rep. Jerry Nadler Blasts Weiner, “He Needs Serious Psychiatric Help”

NY Dem Rep. Jerry Nadler Blasts Weiner, “He Needs Serious Psychiatric Help”

When it comes to Anthony Weiner’s run for mayor of New York City, Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) is not parsing words: he wants Weiner out.

“I think he should withdraw, I think he needs serious psychiatric help,” Nadler told members of the press today. “He should take care of his own problems and let New York figure its policies and its mayor.”

Nadler, whose congressional district includes a large swath of Manhattan and Brooklyn, said that the fact that Weiner — a former congressman himself — continued his behavior after he resigned should make New Yorkers question whether they can trust him.

“I mean, to have done it again after what we went through in the resignation, he has shown himself to be a serial liar. You can’t believe him, and he’s also shown monumentally bad judgment,” Nadler said. “How can you trust his judgment as a mayor?”

But Nadler wanted to make one thing clear, he also feels this way about Eliot Spitzer, who is running for NYC Comptroller.

“I think that the problems that Anthony Weiner — like Eliot Spitzer — exhibited while in office, and after, pose fundamental problems to the serious governance of New York,” Nadler told NBC News. “They both exhibit a fundamental dishonesty, they both lied repeatedly, and show monumental errors of judgment.”

Obama to Spend $700 Million (our Tax dollars) to Push Obamacare – In Swing States

Karl Rove joined Greta Van Susteren last night to discuss the government's plan to blow $700,000,000, nearly a billion dollars to plug Obamacare. But, get this... The Obama Administration is only spending the money on TV ads in swing state markets. This is unbelievable.

“They’re buying a bunch of media markets. Like they are buying New Orleans and Charlotte, North Carolina. They’re not buying Los Angeles. They’re not buying New York. They’re not buying Chicago. They’re not buying Boston. They’re not buying San Francisco. They’re not buying six of the ten largest markets in America. But they’re going to buy TV ads to sing the praises of Obamacare in New Orleans and Charlotte, North Carolina. What about those markets? Why those markets? Well those are in battleground states with US Senate races where the Democratic incumbent voted for Obamacare and is defending their vote. They’re buying a bunch of markets in states with Republican governors who are up for reelection next year. They’re not buying in the biggest markets. They’re not buying in Los Angeles or New York but they’re buying in places where they will have a political impact.“

Obama’s Approval Rating Among Independents Tanking To Only 25%

Obama’s Approval Rating Among Independents Tanking To Only 25%

Most voters are unhappy with the way things are going in the country, and over half say they don’t see signs the economy has turned the corner, according to a Fox News poll released Wednesday. Those are two of the reasons why President Obama’s job approval remains below 50 percent — and hits a new low among independents.

Just 25 percent of independents approve of the job the president is doing, down from 31 percent last month.

Overall, 46 percent of voters approve of Obama’s job performance, while 47 percent disapprove. That’s a slight improvement from last month when headlines trumpeted the IRS targeting of conservative groups, the NSA spying on Americans and the Justice Department monitoring journalists. At that time 43 percent approved and 51 percent disapproved (June 22-24).

White House Official: Obama And John McCain Are In Love

Barack Obama, to hear his advisers tell it, has finally found The One he has been looking for: John McCain.

“We have been looking literally for years for someone we can cut deals with, and finally someone has stepped up,” a White House official said. West Wing aides say they now talk with McCain roughly every other day.

McCain, to hear fellow Republicans tell it, has finally found The Two he has needed to make such conversations worth the bother: Sen. Chuck Schumer, a Democrat who can actually get things done in the Senate, and Denis McDonough, a White House chief of staff who actually cares what senators say and think and do.

I seldom post about McCain, I find him to be a waste of my time. I have had it with his weakness, his left thinking and his constant caving on many important things. He is no longer a hero but a traitor to our country IMO. And he did it himself it was not done to him.

Obama (his hate for Whites) plans to Punish White Neighborhoods For Lack of Minority Families

Obama to Punish White Neighborhoods For Lack of Minority Families

Barack Obama’s latest plan to reshape America will involve punishing white communities for their lack of inclusion.

Already the Obama Administration has doled out “damages” to 25,000 Americans in the last three years in housing reparation payments.

Shaun Donovan, Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, in a July 16 speech to the NAACP about a new regulation and database aimed at adding “protected classes” into predominantly white neighborhoods.

The federal government is getting serious about pushing racial and ethnic diversity into America’s neighborhoods–and is using big data and big money to achieve its aims.

A new interactive database will help regulators, local housing officials and individuals take action on a newly proposed regulation that would require agencies to “affirmatively further” the inclusion of minority residents in white neighborhoods.

Housing and Urban Development Secretary Shaun Donovan announced the database and regulation at last week’s NAACP convention, saying the Obama administration was battling “a quieter form of discrimination” that was “just as harmful” as long-outlawed segregationist practices, like racially restrictive property covenants.

The problem now, Donovan said, is that prospective minority buyers are not being encouraged to move into predominantly white neighborhoods with top-notch schools, government services and amenities like grocery stories, etc.

The goal here then is to continue to prosecute at a high rate incidences deemed proactively segregationist – Donovan touted 25,000 individuals in the past 3 years being paid damages under cases reported to the agency or independently investigated by HUD – but to add in a mandate for diversifying neighborhoods.

The old way was to punish exclusion. The new way is to punish lack of inclusion.

Vile Lib Activists Petition to Remove Rush Limbaugh’s Bust from MO State Capitol

Lib Activists Petition to Remove Rush Limbaugh’s Bust from MO State Capitol

Missouri liberals are working to force politicians to remove the bust of Rush Limbaugh from the state capitol in Jefferson City. EL-Rushbo was inducted into the hall of famous Missourians in May 2012.

A St. Louis woman is leading the latest charge to remove the bronze bust of the controversial conservative radio talk show host from the Missouri Capitol.

Limbaugh’s bust was installed in Jefferson City last May after then-House Speaker Steven Tilley selected him for the Hall of Famous Missourians in the Capitol rotunda.

Heather Woodside has started a petition on calling on Gov. Jay Nixon, Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder and the state House and Senate to remove the bust. As of Tuesday morning, the petition had 6,340 signatures.

“We need to remove a man’s image who makes it his priority to demean women, people of color, immigrants, the working class, the poor and the LGBT community,” Woodside wrote. “He is not a positive example for Missouri.”

Wild Thing's comment............

OK so here is what has got to happen. If there are any conservatives in the State of MO. they need to get active, they need to fight back. It cannot be just sitting at a desk and pounding keys on a keyboard desk top generals, but instead be active and react big time to this.

If our side does not fight back we will be without our country. Thew left is much better at getting their agenda passed because they work at it every day pushing and pushing their POS agenda on us.

Years ago conservatives did fight back and did a lot more then posting about things, they took action. We have got to stop looking at battles against the left, Obama etc. as winning a war and realize it has got to be won one hill at a time.

This is against our Constitution!...San Antonio Seeks To Ban Anyone Who Opposes Homosexuality From Running For City Council, Being Appointed To A Board

San Antonio Seeks To Ban Anyone Who Opposes Homosexuality From Running For City Council, Being Appointed To A Board

Unprecedented’ language targets those with traditional values

The San Antonio City Council is doing some housecleaning to combine all of its anti-discrimination rules and ordinances into one. The consolidated ordinance states a desire to adopt a “comprehensive and expanded non-discrimination policy with revisions to outdated terminology.”

According to Pastor Charles Flowers of Faith Outreach International, the city leaders want to add two categories to the policy: sexual orientation and gender identity.

“The ordinance also says that if you have at any point demonstrated a bias – without defining what a bias is or who will determine whether or not one has been exercised – that you cannot get a city contract,” he tells OneNewsNow. “Neither can any of your subcontractors [who have demonstrated a bias] sign on to the contract.”

Moreover, according to a draft of the revised policy, no one who has spoken out against homosexuality or the transgender lifestyle can run for city council or be appointed to a board. Flowers says the Arizona-based legal firm Alliance Defending Freedom has taken a look at the ordinance.

“They said they’ve never seen this kind of language in any other ordinance in any other city that they’ve dealt with,” the pastor shares. “It is unprecedentedly wrong – and of course the citizens of San Antonio must stop it.”

Flowers maintains the ordinance violates state and federal constitutions in terms of freedom of speech and religion. He is inviting people throughout the U.S. to call the members of the San Antonio City Council to politely voice their opposition.

This is not constitutional and they better not try to do this. I hope people in San Antonio speak up.

Obama To To Map Every Neighborhood In America By Race To “Eliminate Segregation” - Marxism on Steroids!

Obama administration....HUD To Map Every Neighborhood In America By Race To “Eliminate Segregation”

To ensure that “every American is able to choose to live in a community they feel proud of,” HUD has published a new fair-housing regulation intended to give people access to better neighborhoods than the ones they currently live in.

The goal is to help communities understand “fair housing barriers” and “establish clear goals” for “improving integrated living patterns and overcoming historic patterns of segregation.”

“This proposed rule represents a 21st century approach to fair housing, a step forward to ensuring that every American is able to choose to live in a community they feel proud of – where they have a fair shot at reaching their full potential in life,” said HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan.

“For the first time ever,” Donovan added, “HUD will provide data for every neighborhood in the country, detailing the access African American, Latino, Asian, and other communities have to local assets, including schools, jobs, transportation, and other important neighborhood resources that can play a role in helping people move into the middle class.”

Social engineering

According to HUD, long-term solutions include “helping people gain access to different neighborhoods and channeling investments into under-served areas.” The mapping tool may guide development and zoning decisions, for example.

George Zimmerman Rescues FAMILY OF FOUR From Truck Crash

George Zimmerman Rescues FAMILY OF FOUR From Truck Crash

George Zimmerman, who has been in hiding since he was acquitted of murder in the death of Trayvon Martin, emerged to help rescue a family who was trapped in an overturned vehicle, police said today.

Zimmerman was one of two men who came to the aid of Dana and Mark Gerstle and their two children, who were trapped inside a blue Ford Explorer SUV that had rolled over after traveling off the highway in Sanford, Fla. at approximately 5:45 p.m. Thursday, the Seminole County Sheriff's Office said in a statement.

The crash occurred at the intersection of I-4 and route Route 46, police said. The crash site is less than a mile from where Zimmerman shot Martin.

By the time police arrived, two people - including Zimmerman - had already helped the family get out of the overturned car, the sheriff's office said. No one was reported to be injured.

Zimmerman was not a witness to the crash and left after speaking with the deputy, police said.

Closing of Western Pennsylvania power plants leaves workers at a loss (Obama destroys 380 jobs add these to the thousands he has also destroyed)

Closing of Western Pennsylvania power plants leaves workers at a loss [Obama destroys 380 jobs]

A job for life. That's what they were promised.

It wasn't in a contract, but to the 20 men who gathered for Bud Lights and commiseration Wednesday night in Greene County, working at a power plant was the equivalent.

"This was the job everybody wanted," said Ray Christner Jr. of Brownsville. "We had it. And now it's gone."

Nine days had passed since FirstEnergy announced it will shut down two power plants: Hatfield's Ferry, Greene County, across the Monongahela River from Masontown, Fayette County, and Mitchell in Union Township, Washington County, by Oct. 9 -- leaving 380 people without work.

"First, we were shocked. Then we were upset. Now, we're just angry," said Gregg Jerome of Uniontown, an electrician at the plant.

The employees are mainly from Greene, Fayette and Washington counties. Many started at the plants soon after high school and some have stayed for more than 30 years. Others were transferred to Hatfield's Ferry and Mitchell when FirstEnergy closed six coal-fired power plants in Ohio, Maryland and Pennsylvania last year.

Those at Hatfield thought the plant would surely be safe from closure, as Allegheny Energy invested $650 million on scrubbers meant to eliminate sulfur and mercury emissions just four years ago.

If the workers lived somewhere else, losing a job in the power business might not be as stressful. But in Pennsylvania, where coal-fired power production has decreased 28 percent since 2005, there are few, if any, jobs that can replace what the workers at Hatfield's Ferry and Mitchell had: regular hours, salaries between $22 and $30 per hour, and good benefits, all without a college education.

"I understand the importance of regulations and clean air," said technician David Donaldson, 45. "But ask Obama this -- what good is green energy to me if I can't support my family?"

I wonder what the total of jobs lost will be when Obama finishes with his destruction at the end of his reign of terror.

Detroit bankruptcy – this is what happens if you vote Democrat for 51 years

Detroit bankruptcy – this is what happens if you vote Democrat for 51 years

I’ve been to Detroit and I won’t be hurrying back. I’ve never been surrounded by such appalling poverty in a Western country – rows and rows of public housing, every window broken, every door barred. I was advised to take a cab everywhere and to avoid the sidewalk at all costs. The gas station near my motel was a notorious hangout for crack dealers. The only way to get any food was to order it in, and the pizza guy refused to enter the motel itself. I had to come out to the freeway and nervously exchange money for food in the middle of the road. The strangest sight I ever saw was an abandoned toilet bowl in the middle of the highway. A metaphor for something.

What went wrong in Detroit, which has filed for bankruptcy? This piece by Kevin D Williamson pretty much nails it. The figures he gives are astonishing: in 1960 it had the highest per capita income in the US. Today it is the poorest city by far. Crime is rampant and services are poor; corruption is ubiquitous. Anyone with any money has left. The city’s population has fallen by two thirds. It’s a ghost town with a few poor souls still trapped there.

The reasons partly lie with bad policy. The unions helped to price local car workers out of the global market. It meant that those in the union lived well, but when the economy sank and the business was unable to compete, they lost their good salaries and their health insurance. Nowadays, car makers prefer to set up in states like Alabama where costs are much lower. Of course, union power was accentuated in Detroit by having a stagnant economy that refused to diversify. While other cities found new service sector jobs to replace the old ones, the business and political leaders of Detroit stuck to an outdated industrial model that simply did not suit the contemporary world. It didn’t help that regulation was too high and the city too kind to its public employees. Of the $11 billion that it owes in unsecured debt, $9 billion is down to pensions and health insurance plans.

But it’s surely no coincidence that Detroit has also been run by the same people for 51 years. Since 1962, the city has always returned Democratic mayors and, lacking in any real political competition, they’ve been allowed to run the city into the ground. High minded liberal rhetoric covers up for incompetence corruption. According to Kevin Williamson, “former mayor Kwame Kilpatrick and one of his cronies are prison-bound on 31 counts of extortion, bribery, and racketeering.”

So what you have is a toxic combination of stupidity and malice, all enabled by a one party system. This is what all of America would look like if only Democrats governed it for fifty years. You won’t read this often, but thank goodness for the Republican Party.

Barack Obama is not registered to vote in D.C., but Barry Soetoro is!

Barack Obama is not registered to vote in D.C., but Barry Soetoro is! ( this website has all the links etc. regarding this)

Barack Hussein Obama is registered to vote in Washington, D.C., not as Barack Hussein Obama, but as Barry Soetoro.

The latter was his name when he was adopted by Obama’s mother’s (Stanley Ann Dunham) second husband, the Indonesian Lolo Soetoro. (Please note, however, that there are questions as to whether Obama’s mother and his supposed biological father, Barack Hussein Obama Sr., were ever married, there being no trace of either a marriage or divorce certificate.)

Lolo Soetoro and Stanley Ann Dunham were married on March 15, 1965, when little Barry was 4 years old. In 1967, when Barry was 6 years old, he and his mother joined Lolo in Indonesia. Barry lived in Indonesia from ages 6 to 10. In 1971, 10-year-old Barry was sent back to Honolulu to live with his maternal grandparents; Barry’s mom remained in Indonesia. The marriage between Dunham and Soetoro ended in 1980.

In growing lawsuit, servicemembers fault TEPCO for radiation-related illnesses

In growing lawsuit, servicemembers fault TEPCO for radiation-related illnesses

Stars and Stripes

Servicemembers have been diagnosed with leukemia, testicular cancer and thyroid problems or experienced rectal and gynecological bleeding, the lawsuit says.

SASEBO NAVAL BASE, Japan — Five months after participating in humanitarian operations for the March 11, 2011, earthquake and tsunami that led to nuclear disaster in Japan, Petty Officer 3rd Class Daniel Hair’s body began to betray him.

He had sharp hip pains, constant scabbing in his nose, back pain, memory loss, severe anxiety and a constant high-pitch ringing in his ears as his immune system began to attack his body. The diagnosis, he said, was a genetic immune system disease, which on X-rays looked to have made his hip joint jagged and his spine arthritic. He was put on a host of medications and eventually separated from the Navy job he loved.

Hair believes radiation is the cause. He is among 50 sailors and Marines in a growing lawsuit against Tokyo Electric Power Co., alleging that Japan’s nationalized utility mishandled the meltdown at the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant that spewed radiation into the air and water.

Other servicemembers have been diagnosed with leukemia, testicular cancer and thyroid problems or experienced rectal and gynecological bleeding, the lawsuit says. Hair said one of his friends, a fellow USS Ronald Reagan shipmate, was diagnosed with a brain tumor.

“I live in pain every day,” Hair said. “I went from this guy in top physical condition to a deteriorating body and a whacked-out mindset.”

Hair said there is no history of the genetic disease in his family and that doctors have told him radiation exposure could have triggered it.

The Defense Department and other organizations have said the radiation levels that troops were exposed to during Operation Tomodachi were safe, implying that any cancers or physical ailments since then are coincidental. Nearly half of all men and one-third of all women in the U.S. will develop cancer during their lifetimes, according to the American Cancer Society.

“The U.S. Navy took proactive measures throughout and following the disaster relief efforts to control, reduce and mitigate the levels of Fukushima-related contamination on U.S. Navy ships and aircraft,” Pacific Fleet spokesman Lt. Anthony Falvo wrote in a statement to Stars and Stripes.
“To provide a radiological dose perspective, when USS Ronald Reagan sailed through a plume of radioactivity from the Fukushima nuclear power plant during disaster relief operations, the maximum potential radiation dose received by any ship’s force personnel ... was less than the radiation exposure received from about one month of exposure to natural background radiation from sources such as rocks, soil, and the sun.”

Independent reports back up the Defense Department’s statement, but the suit continues to grow. An additional 150 servicemembers are being screened to join, plaintiffs’ lawyer Paul Garner said last month. Each servicemember participating will have to prove in court that his or her conditions are related to the exposure, something Garner says he is confident they can do.

The plaintiffs allege that TEPCO lied about the risk of exposure, luring American forces closer to the affected areas and lulling others at bases across Japan to disregard safety measures. They are seeking at least $40 million each in compensatory and punitive damages and more than $1 billion for a fund to cover health monitoring and medical expenses.

They will be in federal court in San Diego on Oct. 3 to fight a TEPCO motion for a change of venue to Tokyo and a motion to dismiss, Garner said.

Most of the plaintiffs contacted by Stars and Stripes did not return messages. Several said they were being threatened and harassed through anonymous phone calls and social media for bringing the suit and declined to comment. The plaintiffs have been accused of being fortune-seekers by their peers and for allegedly sullying the operation’s goodwill.

The sailors who spoke out see it differently. Hair, who lost his Navy career as a result of his medical status, said he wanted to see some humility and compassion from TEPCO, which declined to comment on the suit.

“Yeah, there is money involved, but how else is that company going to pay for what they’ve done to people?” Hair said. “Who knows what health problems we’ll have down the road?”

Into the fray

When the earthquake struck, Hair and his Reagan shipmates were en route to Korea. They immediately turned around and steamed to the affected area.

“There were people in distress,” he said. “This is what we signed up for.”

The Reagan passed through debris as far as the eye could see: wood, refrigerators, car tires, roofs of houses with people riding on them. Hair was told they were five to 10 miles off the coast from Fukushima, which had been damaged by a massive tsunami spawned by the quake.

Sailors were drinking desalinated seawater and bathing in it until the ship’s leadership came over the public address system and told them to stop because it was contaminated, Hair said. They were told the ventilation system was contaminated, and he claims he was pressured into signing a form that said he had been given an iodine pill even though none had been provided. As a low-ranking sailor, he believed he had no choice.

The Navy has acknowledged that the Reagan passed through a plume of radiation but declined to comment on the details in Hair’s story.

And while many of the plaintiffs came from the Reagan, some of the sailors and Marines involved in the suit were much farther away — adding to skepticism about the motives behind the suit and reigniting a decades-long debate over the effects of low-level radiation.

Shortly after the disaster, Senior Chief Mike Sebourn was sent from his home base, Naval Air Facility Atsugi, to Misawa Air Base, 200 miles from the faltering power plant. As a designated radiation decontamination officer, he dealt with aircraft and personnel that had flown into the area.

Sebourn, with only two days of training, was tasked with testing seven points on an aircraft’s skin for radiation. He and others crawled all over the crafts for months, he said, with only gloves for protection. At one point, he said, they took the radiator out of one aircraft and tested it. The radiation was four times greater than what should have required them to wear a suit and respirator, he said.
The level of radiation “was incredibly dangerous,” Sebourn said. “Navy aviation had never dealt with radiation before. Nobody knew what to do. Nobody knew what was safe. It was a nightmare.”
Sebourn said he suffered nose bleeds, headaches and nausea in the immediate aftermath — symptoms consistent with radiation poisoning. Months later, he felt weak in his right arm; excruciating pain followed. He said the command fitness leader in charge of physical training at Atsugi watched as his arm atrophied to about half its size.
“I have issues that can’t be explained,” Sebourn said. “It just seems like I am deteriorating.”
Sebourn said he went to doctors more than a dozen times, but no one knew what had caused the former personal trainer to lose 70 percent of the strength in the right side of his body. He retired after 17 years in Japan.

Sebourn is alarmed that the word “radiation” doesn’t appear anywhere in his service record, even though that was his job and he was exposed to it. He believed troops exposed would be red-flagged in their service records and be tracked for medical problems.

The Defense Department created the Operation Tomodachi Registry to show radiation dose estimates based on shore locations — and to list more than 70,000 DOD-affiliated people in the area March 12-May 11, 2011 and their individual exposure levels. More than two years after the disaster, the registry remains incomplete.

They hope to release the data for ship-based personnel this month, Craig Postlewaite, director for Defense Department Force Readiness and Health Assurance, wrote in a statement to Stars and Stripes.

Obamacare Forced On Us By Obana Will Cost $1.76 Trillion Over 10 Years

Obamacare to cost $1.76 trillion over 10 yrs

Obama's national health care law will cost $1.76 trillion over a decade, according to a new projection released today by the Congressional Budget Office, rather than the $940 billion forecast when it was signed into law.

Democrats employed many accounting tricks when they were pushing through the national health care legislation, the most egregious of which was to delay full implementation of the law until 2014, so it would appear cheaper under the CBO's standard ten-year budget window and, at least on paper, meet Obama's pledge that the legislation would cost "around $900 billion over 10 years." When the final CBO score came out before passage, critics noted that the true 10 year cost would be far higher than advertised once projections accounted for full implementation.

Today, the CBO released new projections from 2013 extending through 2022, and the results are as critics expected: the ten-year cost of the law's core provisions to expand health insurance coverage has now ballooned to $1.76 trillion. That's because we now have estimates for Obamacare's first nine years of full implementation, rather than the mere six when it was signed into law. Only next year will we get a true ten-year cost estimate, if the law isn't overturned by the Supreme Court or repealed by then. Given that in 2022, the last year available, the gross cost of the coverage expansions are $265 billion, we're likely looking at about $2 trillion over the first decade, or more than double what Obama advertised.

Race Baiter Al Sharton Praises Racist Obama on his speech Friday

The Rev. Al Sharpton Friday called President Obama’s surprise remarks on the Trayvon Martin murder and its impact on American blacks “significant and much needed,” saying they helped prepare the ground for protests Mr. Sharpton is helping to organize around the country this weekend.

“I think he has set a tone for both direct action and needed dialogue,” Mr. Sharpton said in a statement after the president’s very personal remarks about how he reacted to the acquittal of neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman in the Florida trial last week.

The MSNBC news host noted that Mr. Obama had also discussed the need to investigate the “stand your ground” laws in Florida and other states which some critics say contributed to the fatal encounter in February 2012.

“We intend to raise the issue of the ‘stand your ground’ laws that [the president] discussed today that must be revoked in Florida and across the country,” Mr. Sharpton said. “… We welcome the Department of Justice having a serious investigation into what happened in Sanford, Florida, on February 26, 2012.”

Indiana Department Of Insurance Says Rates To Skyrocket By 72% Under Obamacare (socialisim forced on USA)

Health Insurance Rates to Skyrocket in Indiana Says Dept. of Insurance

Indiana Department Of Insurance Says Rates To Skyrocket By 72% Under Obamacare

As a result of the federal Affordable Care Act, individual health insurance rates in Indiana will increase by an average of 72% in 2014 according to Logan Harrison, Chief Deputy Commissioner at the Indiana Department of Insurance. Small group rates will increase by 8%.

Harrison commented, “This new data regrettably confirms the negative impact of the Affordable Care Act on the insurance market in Indiana. The Affordable Care Act requires many Hoosiers to purchase more comprehensive and more expensive health insurance than they may want or need. These rates call into question just how affordable health insurance will really be for many Hoosiers.”

Harrison noted that the State’s actuary predicted this substantial rate increase in 2010, after passage of the Affordable Care Act. He also mentioned that other states being highlighted as benefitting from the Affordable Care Act have already seen exorbitant health insurance rate increases in past years as a result of similar failed policy initiatives. Many of these states have more onerous insurance market regulations than even under the Affordable Care Act

Texas Governor Rick Perry Signs Abortion Restrictions

FOX News Austin

The new law bans abortions after the 20th week of pregnancy and dictates when abortion-inducing drugs can be taken.

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Texas Gov. Rick Perry has signed sweeping new abortion regulations that threaten the existence of most clinics in the state.

The Republican signed legislation Thursday that had sparked weeks of protests at the state Capitol.
The new law bans abortions after the 20th week of pregnancy and dictates when abortion-inducing drugs can be taken. But it also requires abortion clinic doctors to have hospital admitting privileges and restricts abortions to surgical centers.

Only 5 of Texas' 42 abortion clinics currently meet the new requirements. The law takes effect in October.

DOJ has seized George Zimmerman’s gun..Police confirm DOJ has placed a hold on all evidence from the case

DOJ Has Seized George Zimmerman’s Gun… Without Charge!

The Florida jury acquitted George Zimmerman of murder charges on Saturday.

But that wasn’t enough for the Obama Administration.

Police confirm DOJ has placed a hold on all evidence from the case.


Justice Department asks police to hold Zimmerman evidence

The Department of Justice has asked the Sanford, Florida, police department to hold all evidence related to the George Zimmerman case, Sanford Capt. Jim McAuliffe said Thursday.

The request is related to the Justice Department’s own investigation of the matter, McAuliffe said. The move was expected as the agency weighs whether to pursue a civil rights case.

The Department of Justice opened an investigation into the Zimmerman case last year, and a statement from the agency Sunday said it was ongoing and will now include evidence and testimony from the Florida trial.

Zimmerman, a former neighborhood watch volunteer, was acquitted over the weekend in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

In a speech in Washington on Monday, Attorney General Eric Holder said the Justice Department would “continue to act in a manner that is consistent with the facts and the law” in examining what he called “the tragic, unnecessary shooting death of Trayvon Martin.”

Florida Laws Says Zimmerman's Gun Must Be Returned to Him....BUT Eric Holder Ignore Florida Law!

Justice Department places 'hold' on Trayvon Martin trial evidence, including George Zimmerman's gun - which Florida law says must be returned to him

The U.S. Department of Justice, overseen by Attorney General Eric Holder, has ordered the Sanford, Florida police department to keep possession of all the evidence from George Zimmerman's second-degree murder trial - including the exonerated neighborhood watch volunteer's gun.

Sanford police confirmed on Thursday that the DOJ asked the agency not to return any pieces of evidence to their owners. Zimmerman was expected to get his firearm back by month's end.

The development is a sign that the criminal section of the Justice Department's Civil Rights Division is seriously investigating Zimmerman to determine if federal civil rights charges should be filed.

Wild Thing's comment.............

More and more under Obama and his people such as Holder, we are living in a country that is less and less free every day. They are obsessed with control over all of us.

Krauthammer: IRS Scandal ‘Left Cincinnati And Is Now In D.C.’

Krauthammer: IRS Scandal ‘Left Cincinnati And Is Now In D.C.’

Back in May, the IRS Chief Steven Miller blamed two “rogue” agents in the Cincinnati office for going “off the reservation” to target Conservatives. Everybody knew that was bogus. It's obvious it came from the top as no 'rogue agents' would ever be permitted to act without authorization. Krauthammer says, after today's testimony, the scandal left Cincy and is now in Washington

Charles Krauthammer said today on Special Report that new evidence from the investigation into the IRS’s targeting of conservative groups demonstrates that the scandal was orchestrated out of Washington.

“The locus of the story left Cincinnati and is now in DC,” said Krauthammer.

Krauthammer argued that today’s House Oversight Committee hearings demonstrated that “the management from DC demanded oversight, demanded that [tea party] applications end up in DC.”

He explained that the goal was not simply to delay conservative groups, but rather “it was to get through the 2010, 2012 elections with these applicants unable to get approval and thus raise funds.”

Wild Thing's comment................

Very Concerning! After Being Re-Elected, Obama Asked His Top Aides How To Govern Without Congress

After Being Re-Elected, Obama Asked His Top Aides How To Govern Without Congress

Politico’s Glenn Thrush reports that after President Obama won re-election, he tried to find out ways of pushing his second term agenda without the Republican-led Congress:

“Guys, I don’t want politics to be a limit of what you recommend to me,” Obama told senior aides David Plouffe, Lew, Dan Pfeiffer and Pete Rouse a couple of weeks after his reelection, according to a White House aide with direct knowledge of the meeting.

“Let’s come up with an agenda, then let’s figure it out from there as best we can,” he said, prodding them to adopt a more muscular approach to the use of executive power. “We can’t let the driving force of what we pass be Congress.”

This explains President Obama’s frequent mentions of governing without Congress.

Union Leaders Now Say Obamacare Will Destroy ‘Health & Well-Being’ of US Workers

Union Leaders Now Say Obamacare Will Destroy ‘Health & Well-Being’ of US Workers

The Wall Street Journal

The leaders of three major U.S. unions, including the highly influential Teamsters, have sent a scathing open letter to Democratic leaders in Congress, warning that unless changes are made, President Obama’s health care reform plan will “destroy the foundation of the 40 hour work week that is the backbone of the American middle class.”

If that’s not bad enough, the Affordable Care Act, if not modified, will “destroy the very health and wellbeing of our members along with millions of other hardworking Americans,” the letter says.

The full letter, below:

Dear Leader Reid and Leader Pelosi:

When you and the President sought our support for the Affordable Care Act (ACA), you pledged that if we liked the health plans we have now, we could keep them. Sadly, that promise is under threat. Right now, unless you and the Obama Administration enact an equitable fix, the ACA will shatter not only our hard-earned health benefits, but destroy the foundation of the 40 hour work week that is the backbone of the American middle class.

Like millions of other Americans, our members are front-line workers in the American economy. We have been strong supporters of the notion that all Americans should have access to quality, affordable health care. We have also been strong supporters of you. In campaign after campaign we have put boots on the ground, gone door-to-door to get out the vote, run phone banks and raised money to secure this vision.

Now this vision has come back to haunt us.

Since the ACA was enacted, we have been bringing our deep concerns to the Administration, seeking reasonable regulatory interpretations to the statute that would help prevent the destruction of non-profit health plans. As you both know first-hand, our persuasive arguments have been disregarded and met with a stone wall by the White House and the pertinent agencies. This is especially stinging because other stakeholders have repeatedly received successful interpretations for their respective grievances. Most disconcerting of course is last week’s huge accommodation for the employer community—extending the statutorily mandated “December 31, 2013” deadline for the employer mandate and penalties.

Time is running out: Congress wrote this law; we voted for you. We have a problem; you need to fix it. The unintended consequences of the ACA are severe. Perverse incentives are already creating nightmare scenarios:

First, the law creates an incentive for employers to keep employees’ work hours below 30 hours a week. Numerous employers have begun to cut workers’ hours to avoid this obligation, and many of them are doing so openly. The impact is two-fold: fewer hours means less pay while also losing our current health benefits.

Second, millions of Americans are covered by non-profit health insurance plans like the ones in which most of our members participate. These non-profit plans are governed jointly by unions and companies under the Taft-Hartley Act. Our health plans have been built over decades by working men and women. Under the ACA as interpreted by the Administration, our employees will treated differently and not be eligible for subsidies afforded other citizens. As such, many employees will be relegated to second-class status and shut out of the help the law offers to for-profit insurance plans.

And finally, even though non-profit plans like ours won’t receive the same subsidies as for-profit plans, they’ll be taxed to pay for those subsidies. Taken together, these restrictions will make non-profit plans like ours unsustainable, and will undermine the health-care market of viable alternatives to the big health insurance companies.

On behalf of the millions of working men and women we represent and the families they support, we can no longer stand silent in the face of elements of the Affordable Care Act that will destroy the very health and wellbeing of our members along with millions of other hardworking Americans.

We believe that there are common-sense corrections that can be made within the existing statute that will allow our members to continue to keep their current health plans and benefits just as you and the President pledged. Unless changes are made, however, that promise is hollow.

We continue to stand behind real health care reform, but the law as it stands will hurt millions of Americans including the members of our respective unions.

We are looking to you to make sure these changes are made.

Ted Cruz: 'Indefensible' Immigration Bill Penalizes Employers for Hiring US Citizens

Ted Cruz: 'Indefensible' Immigration Bill Penalizes Employers for Hiring US Citizens

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) emphasized that the Senate's immigration bill's intersection with Obamacare would penalize employers for hiring U.S. citizens or legal immigrants.

“This is utterly and completely indefensible," he said.

Keynoting the D.C. March for Jobs rally, which the Black American Leadership Alliance organized and Breitbart News exclusively broadcast, Cruz said this is a provision that the mainstream media has not covered and does not want to inform Americans about it.

"One of the most egregious aspects of the Gang of Eight bill is its intersection with Obamacare," Cruz said. He said employers under Obamacare will have to pay a $3,000 penalty for every employee if they do not provide health insurance and would thus penalize businesses "that hire a U.S. citizen or a legal permanent resident over an illegal immigrant."

Cruz was referring to the fines employers with more than 50 full-time employees will be subjected to under the Obamacare employer mandate once it is implemented after the one-year delay the Obama administration sought and received.

Since illegal immigrants or those who gain provisional status due to the Senate bill are exempted from Obamacare, Cruz said employers would also be incentivized to reduce the hours of U.S. citizens or legal immigrants instead of those of who gained provisional status under the bill.

Many employers are reducing the hours of their employees to under 30 hours a week so their employees do not qualify as "full-time employees."

I am glad Cruz is speaking out about this. I wish more of them would.

Michelle Obama's “Healthy” School Lunch Overhaul Wreaking Havoc On School Districts

Michelle Obama's “Healthy” School Lunch Overhaul Wreaking Havoc On School Districts

A newly released report by the Government Accountability Office finds numerous problems have been created by the National School Lunch Program overhaul pushed by First Lady Michelle Obama.

Those problems have been magnified in recent weeks, as several school districts across the nation have either dropped out of the voluntary federal lunch program or have increased prices of school lunches to make up for a drop in sales attributed to federal menu changes.

The report, presented to a subcommittee of the House Education and Workforce Committee, detailed visits to eight school districts by GAO bureaucrats to see the impact of the regulations.

“Although the eight districts GAO visited expressed support for the improvements to the nutritional quality of school lunch, they reported additional challenges meeting the new requirements, such as student acceptance, food waste, costs, and participation,” the report states.

The report notes the absurd conflicts and inconsistencies created by the changes. For example, cheeseburgers were removed from one district’s elementary and middle school lunch menus because adding cheese to the burger “would have made it difficult to stay within the weekly meat maximums.” Another district switched from shredded cheese to cheese sauce because the liquid cheese “does not count as a meat alternate.”

Cheese is cheese, unless you’re writing government regulations, apparently.

Similarly, another school district switched from whole grain chips to potato chips because “the potato chip did not count as a grain.”

The report also found schools didn’t necessarily increase healthy options for students.

Attorney General Greg Abbott a Conservative Announces Gubernatorial Bid

Perseverance Our lives are changed by single moments, especially the ones we never see coming.

Conservative Texas attorney general announces gubernatorial bid

Republican Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott, a social conservative who once joked his job consists of "getting up in the morning, suing Barack Obama, then going home," announced on Sunday he would seek his party's nomination for governor.

Abbott's announcement came after three-term Governor Rick Perry, who unsuccessfully sought the 2012 Republican presidential nomination, said last week he would not seek re-election.

"When it comes to our freedom and our future, I will never, never stop fighting," Abbott told several hundred cheering supporters at an outdoor rally on a humid afternoon.

Supporters fanned themselves with yellow cardboard fans distributed by the campaign that were emblazoned with the message "fast cars, firearms, and freedom, it's a Texas thing." Many wore yellow t-shirts featuring the campaign symbol, a snake wound around the letter "A" under the words, "Don't Tread on Me."

Abbott has filed 27 federal lawsuits challenging Obama administration policies related to gun rights, health care, Environmental Protection Agency mandates and other issues. He cited his legal activism as a qualification for the job of governor.

"The very day the president signed Obamacare into law, I took him to court to protect our constitutional rights," Abbott said. "I know the Constitution. I have enforced the Constitution, suing an overreaching federal government."

Among the endorsements for Abbott read at the rally was a statement from Republican U.S. Senator Ted Cruz Of Texas. The Tea Party favorite served as Abbott's solicitor general, an appointed position, before being elected to the Senate last year.

"Abbott is a leader in the fight for liberty and for the Constitution," Cruz said in the statement.

USS Kearsarge, USS San Antonio 'parked off of Egypt'

The USS Kearsarge and the USS San Antonio “moved up into the Red Sea and parked off of Egypt,” a couple of nights ago, “because we don’t know what’s going to happen,” Gen. James Amos said.

Stars and Stripes

As political unrest continues in post-coup Egypt, two amphibious assault ships have moved to the coast there, the commandant of the Marine Corps said Thursday.

The USS Kearsarge and the USS San Antonio “moved up into the Red Sea and parked off of Egypt,” a couple of nights ago, “because we don’t know what’s going to happen,” Gen. James Amos said.

Amos was speaking with Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Jonathan Greenert at a forum on the future of maritime forces, which was held at the Center for Strategic and International Studies.

Having noted earlier that he thinks “there’s zero peace dividend” coming out Afghanistan, he used the situation in Egypt as part of his pitch that despite uncertain budget times the U.S. military should maintain a robust presence throughout the world.

“Crisis happens. Egypt is a crisis right now,” Amos said. “When that happens...what we owe the senior leadership of our nation is versatile options.”

The two ships are “there on purpose,” he said. “That’s the flexibility that in a response to a crisis we have to have.”

He and Greenert also discussed the pivot to Asia, a strategy that they are working on how to implement within the current budget constraints.

The build up in Australia is continuing with the number of Marines in Darwin set to grow from 250 to 1,000 in 2014, and the Marines have gone from one to three battalions on the Japanese island of Okinawa with a fourth headed there this fall.

Electrical workers union jumps aboard anti-Obamacare bus

Electrical workers union jumps aboard anti-Obamacare bus

The Washington Times

The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers is the latest in a string of unions to come out against the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, known as Obamacare.

The group’s launched new ads with several media organizations, including Roll Call and The Hill, expressing dissatisfaction with the health reform and pointing to discrepancies between what President Obama promised — and what he actually delivered.

One ad cites the president’s July 2009 remarks: “If you like your health care plan, you will be able to keep your health care plan. Period. No one will take it away. No matter what.”

But the union said that’s not exactly true, The Daily Caller reported. Loopholes in the text of Obamacare are putting in jeopardy IBEW members’ ability to access the same health-care plans they’ve used for 65-plus years.

“[Obamacare] threatens the viability of multi-employer health plans in four ways,” the IBEW said in a statement on Thursday, The Daily Caller reported. “The IBEW cannot afford to sit on the sidelines [as Obamacare] threatens to harm our members by dismantling multi-employer plans.”

And IBEW President Edwin Hill said: “Our members and allied employers have worked hard for the health care they have, and President Obama must move now to guarantee that his signature law will not cost them their coverage.”

Also protesting aspects of Obamacare in recent months: the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union, the International Brotherhood of Teamsters and UNITE HERE.

Ted Cruz introduces bill to defund Obamacare

Ted Cruz introduces bill to defund Obamacare

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, along with 17 other Senate Republicans, has introduced the Defund Obamacare Act of 2013, which would fully defund Obamacare, in the wake of the recent string of bad news surrounding the law.

"The Administration's recent announcement to delay the onerous and unpopular employer mandate until after the 2014 election, coupled with its announcement to delay income and health status eligibility requirements in favor of an honor system for the most expensive entitlement for our generation, confirms what has been obvious from the start--this law is a colossal mistake," Cruz said in a press release.

Cruz is joined by Rep. Tom Graves, R-Ga., who introduced companion legislation in the House. Graves has introduced similar legislation before, in March of 2013, and also in the 111th and 112th congresses.

"We must seize the moment and permanently delay the entire law," Graves wrote in his own press release. "Congress can do this. We control the purse strings and can protect taxpayers from funding Obamacare. Businesses have their delay and the special interests have their waivers. Let's not leave working families or anyone else on the tracks for this train wreck."

Along with previous bills to defund the health care law, House Republicans have also voted 37 times to repeal the law entirely.

Wild Thing's comment..................

I sure would love if we could get rid of Obamacare, the entire thing.

Obama's Hate for Coal Mining has lead to this....Militant Eco-Activists Harass Workers at Wisconsin Mine (GRAPHIC LANGUAGE)

Militant Eco-Activists Harass Workers at Wisconsin Mine

**GRAPHIC LANGUAGE** VIDEO: Militant Eco-Activists Harass Workers at Wisconsin Mine

On July 10, 2013, the following video was posted on eco-activist Andrea Ladenthin’s Facebook page and then reposted to YouTube by Media Trackers. The video shows a group of militant eco-activists verbally threatening workers and attempting to shut down a mining project in northern Wisconsin.

The environmentalists tell the miners that they'll "f***ing destroy" them. They threaten, “Do you think we will be the only ones coming? You won’t get anything done as long as we’re here."

One female in the video can be seen repeatedly yelling at the workers, "Get on the other side or die." Another calls one of the workers a “country boy, racist piece of sh*t.”

Media Trackers Brian Sikma told Breitbart News the site under attack is in Iron County, WI and is owned by Gogebic Taconite.

Gogebic Taconite has recently hired armed security guards from Bulletproof Securities “to monitor the company’s land, which is trespassed on by illegal campers — vandals that oppose the mine,” according to one company spokesman.

Lawmakers Angry after DOJ Defunds Young Marines

Lawmakers Angry after DOJ Defunds Young Marines

A Louisiana sheriff has received bipartisan support in his fight against the Department of Justice after they denied thousands of dollars in funding to the Young Marines because the program’s oath placed “special emphasis on the love of God and fidelity to our country.”

“We were informed that these are unacceptable, inherently religious activities and the Department of Justice would not be able to fund the programs if it continued,” Sheriff Julian Whittington told Fox News. “They wanted a letter from me stating that I would no longer have voluntary prayer and I would also have to remove ‘God’ from the Young Marine’s oath.”

The sheriff refused to sign any document pledging not to pray and as a result the department lost its funding. The Liberty Institute is representing the sheriff’s office as they try to get back $30,000 in government funding.

Meanwhile, Gov. Bobby Jindal has issued a proclamation urging the DOJ to restore funding and U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu has introduced legislation to forbid the federal government from defunding programs because of religious activity.

The DOJ originally funneled the money through the Louisiana Commission on Law Enforcement. The DOJ did not return telephone calls seeking comment.

Young Marines describes itself as a private service program for boys and girls. Its national website says members should attend church and pledge not to dishonor God. The Justice Department took exception to that.

Liberty Institute attorney Michael Berry told Fox News that the Obama Administration’s decision is disturbing.

“We are deeply troubled that the DOJ, the agency in charge of defending the civil rights of us all, would engage in this type of discrimination by denying permission to fund the outstanding Young Marine’s program,” Berry said. “It is shameful that a mere mention of God sends the DOJ officials running as if they had seen a ghost.”

Berry sent a letter to the Department of Justice Civil Rights Division calling on them to reinstate the lost funding.

“The DOJ’s denial of funds to BPSO youth programs is a violation of the First Amendment’s Free Exercise Clause because it constitutes unlawful viewpoint discrimination,” he wrote.

According to documents obtained by Fox News, the DOJ took exception to the Young Marines obligation oath.

“From this day forward, I sincerely promise I will set an example for all other youth to follow, and I shall never do anything that would bring disgrace or dishonor upon my God, my Country and its flag, my parents, myself, or the Young Marines,” the oath read. “These I will honor and respect in a manner that will reflect credit upon them and myself. Semper Fidelis.”

The Young Marines Creed also references a promise to “keep myself clean in mind by attending the church of my faith.”

In March 2012, a DOJ audit of the program noted their “special emphasis on the love of God and fidelity to our country.”

In October 2012, the sheriff’s office was told to cease voluntary prayers unless they were conducted in a separate time and location from the class.

In March 2013, the DOJ raised more concerns over approving funding because of the references to ‘God.’

And in May funding was denied.

That decision drew bipartisan outrage – starting with Gov. Bobby Jindal who signed a proclamation supporting the sheriff’s office and the Young Marines.

“The First Amendment guarantees us freedom of religion, not freedom from religion,” Jindal said. “It was written to protect people of faith from government officials, and we are going to hold on to that freedom.”
Jindal said he would do whatever he could to convince the Obama Administration to refund the program.

“I hope we can, but I know we are not going to give up our religious freedom,” he said, noting that the sheriff’s program has helped a number of Louisiana’s young people.

“We are calling on the Department of Justice to restore the funding to the Young Marines so it can continue improving the lives of our young men and women through prayer,” the governor said.

On Thursday Landrieu introduced the “Freedom to Pray Act.” The bill would forbid the federal government from withholding money from programs whose participants engage in voluntary religious activity.

“This is clearly a serious overreach by the Department of Justice and I intend to do something about it,” Landrieu said. “These kids are working to improve themselves and their communities; they deserve support, not unnecessary hurdles.”

Landrieu chastised the DOJ’s decision and said they had no right to single out the Bossier Parish programs.

“The DOJ has plenty of problems to worry about,” she said. “It should focus more on them and not a program that is doing good work for kids in our community.”

The arrogance of some at the DOJ is mind boggling. This regime is hostile to all faiths but Islam, and this DOJ is the most lawless in memory if not history.

Obama's radical rejection of the rule of law has fatal consequences

Obama's radical rejection of the rule of law has fatal consequences

FOX News

Fidelity to the rule of law is the centerpiece of a free society. It means that no one is beneath the protection of the law and no one is absolved of the obligation to comply with it. The government may not make a person or a class of persons exempt from constitutional protections, as it did during slavery, nor may it make government officials exempt from complying with the law, as it does today.

Everyone who works for the government in the United States takes an oath to uphold the Constitution and the laws written pursuant to it.

In our system of government, we expect that Congress will write the laws, the courts will interpret them and the president will enforce them.

Indeed, the Constitution states that it is the president’s affirmative duty to enforce the law. That duty is not an abstract formulation. Rather, it means the president cannot decline to enforce laws with which he disagrees or whose enforcement might cause him or his political allies to lose popularity.

It also means the president cannot make up his own version of the law as a substitute for what the Constitution commands or Congress has written.

In the modern era, presidents have rejected the value of the rule of law and instead followed their own political interests. President George W. Bush, for example, while signing into law a federal statute prohibiting the government from reading your mail without a search warrant, boasted that he had no intention of enforcing that law -- and we know that he famously did not enforce it.

But no modern president has picked and chosen which laws to enforce and which to ignore and which to rewrite to the extremes of President Obama. His radical rejection of the rule of law, which presents a clear and present danger to the freedom of us all, has had fatal consequences.

The law requires that if American tax dollars are being given to the government of another country, and that government is toppled by its military -- the common phrase is a coup d’état -- the flow of cash shall stop immediately, lest we support financially those who have betrayed our values.

In Egypt, the military arrested the president, suspended the Constitution and installed a puppet regime. But Obama, embarrassed at the fall of the popularly elected but religiously fanatical government he supported, refuses to consider that military takeover a coup. Instead he has called it a popular uprising supported by the military, and he has continued the flow of your dollars into the hands of a military that has been murdering scores of peaceful demonstrators daily in the streets of Cairo.

The president’s signature domestic legislation -- ObamaCare -- is scheduled to become effective in stages. One of its provisions, requiring employers of more than 50 persons to offer health insurance acceptable to the feds to all of their employees, becomes effective on Jan. 1, 2014.

In anticipation of its becoming law, insurance carriers and employers have calculated that instead of costs going down, as the president promised, they will certainly go up, resulting in the loss of jobs. So the president, mindful of the midterm congressional elections in November 2014 and fearful that Democrats who supported this law might suffer at the polls at the hands of deceived and thus angry voters, announced on the Fourth of July weekend that he planned not to enforce that provision until Jan. 1, 2015.

When he wanted to use military force in Libya and Pakistan -- two allies -- without congressional approval, out of fear, no doubt, that Congress might turn him down, he dispatched the CIA to do his killing.

Why? Because federal law requires that he report all offensive use of the military to Congress and eventually obtain its approval for continued use. Because the CIA largely operates in secrecy, the president needn’t report its behavior publicly or even acknowledge that it took place.

In the same vein, he recently moved all records of the Usama bin Laden killing from the military -- which carried it out -- to the CIA.

Why? Because the military is largely susceptible to the Freedom of Information Act, which commands transparency, and the CIA is largely not. He probably fears that the truthful version of bin Laden’s demise will become known. If so, it would be the fourth version of those events his administration has given.

When he wanted to kill an American and his 16-year-old son in Yemen because the American, though uncharged with any crime and unasked to come home, might be difficult to arrest while advocating war in a foreign country, he wrote his own rules for governing his own killings. He did so in secret and notwithstanding clear language in the Constitution expressly prohibiting the government from taking life, liberty or property without due process of law.

And when he wanted to keep us safe from terrorists but servile to him by spying on all of us, he established an enormous network of domestic spies who have access to all of our phone calls, emails and text messages. And he did this despite unambiguous language in the Constitution requiring a search warrant based on particularized probable cause of crime about the records he wanted to seize or the venues he wanted to search.

What’s going on?

What we have is a runaway government, dismissive of the Constitution it has sworn to uphold, contemptuous of the law it is required to enforce and driven by its own values of maximum control and minimum personal freedom. And we have a Congress supine enough to let this happen, as well as a judiciary so tangled in its own arcane procedures that immeasurable human freedom will be destroyed and Obama out of office before any meaningful judicial review can be had.

Is this the rule of law? What shall we do about it?

Wild Thing's comment...............

Obama IMO truly believes he is above the law. He could care less about going against our Constitution or anything else. He wants to make the USA like a third world country.

DC Democrats Pass $12.50 Minimum Wage Law… Wal-Mart Cancels Three Store Openings

Within hours of the decision Wal-Mart announced it was canceling three store openings in the area.

The D.C. Council has passed a bill that would require large retailers like Wal-Mart to pay workers at least $12.50.

The bill now goes to Mayor Vincent Gray for his consideration. The 8-5 vote was short of the votes needed to override a veto from the mayor.

In a statement, Wal-Mart says the Council has forced the retailer’s hands and it will abandon three planned projects in the District.

“We will not pursue Skyland, Capitol Gateway, and New York Avenue and will start to review the financial and legal implications on the three stores already under construction. This was a difficult decision for us – and unfortunate news for most D.C. residents – but the Council has forced our hand,” the written statement says.

Obama Blocking Access to AFRICOM Colonel with Benghazi

Obama Blocking Access to AFRICOM Colonel with Benghazi

A suspicious mind would suspect that Obama Inc. has something to hide about Benghazi and doesn’t want to risk having the same kind of testimony from the military end that we saw from top diplomatic personnel who turned whistleblowers.

Fortunately I’m not the suspicious type at all. I’m sure this is all just some sort of misunderstanding involving the DOD being unable to find one of its own key people.

Marine Corps Col. George Bristol was in a key position in the U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM) chain of command the night of the Sept. 11, 2012, attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya. As such, he’s high on the list of people that some Republican members of Congress want to interview. But they don’t know where he is and the Pentagon isn’t telling.

Pentagon spokesman Major Robert Firman told CBS News that the Department of Defense “cannot compel retired members to testify before Congress.”

Ft. Hood Terrorist Nidal Hasan Uses Court Appearance To Declare His Support For The Taliban

Ft. Hood Jihadist Nidal Hasan Uses Court Appearance To Declare His Support For The Taliban…

FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) — The U.S. Army psychiatrist charged in the mass shooting at Fort Hood asked pointed questions about religion and used several opportunities Wednesday to declare his support for the Taliban and a fellow American-born Muslim who killed a U.S. soldier, as he was allowed to zero in on potential jurors during the second day of jury selection.

Maj. Nidal Hasan, who is serving as his own attorney in his military murder trial, participated as nine of the remaining 14 Army officers in the group of potential jurors were questioned individually.

Hasan told one colonel that Abdulhakim Muhammad, sentenced to life in prison for the June 2009 fatal shooting of a soldier outside a Little Rock, Arkansas, military recruiting station, was his “brother and friend.” Muhammad, who converted to Islam in college, has told The Associated Press that the shootings were an act of war on the U.S.

In answering Hasan’s questions based on jury questionnaires they filled out about a year ago, several potential jurors said they had negative views of Muslims, the Quran or Shariah, the Islamic legal and religious code. But they said they could put aside those views and only consider evidence in the case — including a colonel asked by Hasan if “the fact that I do believe the Quran justifies killing” would prevent him from being a fair juror.

Osborn has denied his “defense of others” strategy, which must show that killing was necessary to prevent the immediate harm or death of others. The judge has barred him from telling jurors that he shot U.S. troops because he believed they were an imminent threat to Taliban leaders in Afghanistan.

Michelle Malkin on Hannity Discussing Border Security

House Republicans held a closed-door meeting to talk about immigration reform. Fox News has learned that cheers erupted when the leadership said they would not take up the Senate bill.

After today’s private meeting, GOP House members put out a joint statement that reads in part: “Today House Republicans affirmed that rather than take up the flawed legislation rushed through the Senate, House committees will continue their work on a step-by-step, common-sense approach to fixing a system that has long been a broken system. The American people want our border secured, our laws enforced and the problems in our immigration system fixed to strengthen our economy.”

Michelle Malkin reacted on Hannity tonight, telling Sean that Republicans, especially those who are part of the Gang of Eight, are wrongly using border security as a bargaining tool.

Fired up, she said, “We have to get rid of this platitude of border security first. As I’ve said many times, it is border security, period. Border security is not some bargaining chip or some box that you just check off. […] It’s not conditional on anything.”

Dictator Obama Orders Fed Workers To Spy On Each Other

DrudgeReport gives us the following bullet points:

Watch lifestyles, attitudes and behaviors…
Odd working hours, unexplained travel…
Monitor co-workers stress, divorce, financial problems…
Track online activities…
Those failing to report face penalties, criminal charges…

WASHINGTON — In an initiative aimed at rooting out future leakers and other security violators, President Barack Obama has ordered federal employees to report suspicious actions of their colleagues based on behavioral profiling techniques that are not scientifically proven to work, according to experts and government documents.

The techniques are a key pillar of the Insider Threat Program, an unprecedented government-wide crackdown under which millions of federal bureaucrats and contractors must watch out for “high-risk persons or behaviors” among co-workers. Those who fail to report them could face penalties, including criminal charges.

Obama mandated the program in an October 2011 executive order after Army Pfc. Bradley Manning downloaded hundreds of thousands of documents from a classified computer network and gave them to WikiLeaks, the anti-government secrecy group. The order covers virtually every federal department and agency, including the Peace Corps, the Department of Education and others not directly involved in national security.

Under the program, which is being implemented with little public attention, security investigations can be launched when government employees showing “indicators of insider threat behavior” are reported by co-workers, according to previously undisclosed administration documents obtained by McClatchy. Investigations also can be triggered when “suspicious user behavior” is detected by computer network monitoring and reported to “insider threat personnel.”

Federal employees and contractors are asked to pay particular attention to the lifestyles, attitudes and behaviors – like financial troubles, odd working hours or unexplained travel – of co-workers as a way to predict whether they might do “harm to the United States.” Managers of special insider threat offices will have “regular, timely, and, if possible, electronic, access” to employees’ personnel, payroll, disciplinary and “personal contact” files, as well as records of their use of classified and unclassified computer networks, polygraph results, travel reports and financial disclosure forms.

Who gets to define suspicious behavior or attitudes? That could describe everyone in a bureaucracy. What next? Gulags for all the “suspicious” citizens?

Indiana Hospital Chain Fires 865 Employees Because of Obamacare

Indiana Hospital Chain Fires 865 Employees Because of Obamacare

J.K.Wall reports for Independent Business Journal, June 28, 2013, that St. Vincent Health — the second-largest hospital system and the 6th-largest employer in Indiana, with 22 hospitals employing about 17,300 people — announced it will eliminate about 865 jobs to reduce its labor costs by 5%.

The job cuts are to save money as Obamacare (Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act) and Congressional budget cuts promise to take a bite out of hospital reimbursement rates. Obamacare calls for $155 billion in cuts to hospitals’ Medicare payments over 10 years. Then the fiscal-cliff deal on Jan. 1 of this year chopped out another $15 billion. And the budget sequester, which hit March 1, looked ready to sap another $10 billion.

All hospitals are trying to cut expenses drastically, by as much as 25%, in order to prepare for a future they expect to be far more austere than the past. With personnel typically accounting for 60% of hospital expenses, staff reductions are an inevitable part of that process.

Sarah Murnaghan Develops Pneumonia in her right lung

Sarah Murnaghan Develops Pneumonia in her right lung


Young double lung transplant recipient Sarah Murnaghan, who sparked a national debate over children's access to adult organ donations, has developed pneumonia in one of her new organs.

In a Facebook post Monday, Sarah’s mother Janet Murnaghan said the 10-year-old developed the condition in her right lung. She said doctors at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia believe it has been caused by aspirations – or drawing of foreign matter into the respiratory system – from the girl’s belly.

“Yesterday was tough. Today she is more stable, but this is definitely a large set back,” Janet Murnaghan said.

Sarah, who has a severe case of cystic fibrosis, underwent a surgery at CHOP on July 2 to repair a partially paralyzed diaphragm, which was causing breathing troubles. The diaphragm was injured during the girl’s second adult-lung transplant on June 15.

The new lungs were transplanted three days after a first set of adult lungs failed on June 12. The mother said the first set of lungs were not rejected by the girl’s body, rather “marginal” and had to be removed shortly after the procedure.

The second set of lungs, were also infected with pneumonia, but Janet Murnaghan had said doctors cut out the infected portion of the organ before transplantation.

Sarah had so much swelling following the second surgery that doctors were forced to keep her chest open for a week until the swelling subsided.

Decorated Wounded Marine Treated “Shamefully” By TSA

Decorated Wounded Marine Treated “Shamefully” By TSA

Military Times

Wearing the uniform of the Few and Proud doesn’t rate preferential treatment from the Transportation Security Administration or California capitol security officers, retired Marine Cpl. Nathan Kemnitz recently found.

Kemnitz, severely injured in 2004 in a roadside bomb attack in Fallujah, has limited use of his right arm and cannot lift it above his head. So when security guards at the state capitol building in Sacramento, Calif., asked him to remove his dress blue blouse “because he was wearing too much metal,” and TSA asked him to raise his arms above his head for the full-body scanner at Sacramento International Airport, he could not comply.

“My right arm doesn’t work. It’s a lot of hassle for me to do that,” Kemntiz said.

At the state capitol, the Marine’s refusal to remove his uniform top grew into a heated exchange between Kemnitz, a friend who was accompanying him and security officers.

At the airport, bystanders stared as the TSA security screener looked under Kemnitz’s medals, ran his hands under the Marine’s waistband and swabbed his shoes for explosives.

“What does a uniform and heroism represent if our own citizens — in this case employees of the TSA and security personnel — have no regard for them?” wrote Kemnitz’s escort, Patricia Martin, to Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki following the incidents.

Martin took photos and disseminated them to family, friends and members of the media.

Liz Cheney: Opposition to Obama's Radical Agenda Is Not Obstruction, It's Patriotism

Liz Cheney was on Happening Now this morning to discuss her editorial in the Wall Street Journal where she called Barack Obama the most radical president in history. Cheney said, "My point in this oped was to say, "Wait a second!" When you have a president who's embarked on such a dangerous path, whether you want to talk about domestic policy, ignoring the debt, trying to trample on our Second Amendment rights, on our religious freedom, national security, weakening this nation... Across the board his policies are so dangerous that it is not obstructionism to block them, I think, it is indeed patriotism.

Obamacare Is Now a “Slow-Motion” Train Wreck For Fraud

HHS Gives Up On Obamacare’s Anti-Fraud Measures, Will Allow People Looking For Health Care Subsidies To Self-Report Their Income With No Verification

Obamacare Is Now a “Slow-Motion” Train Wreck For Fraud… Just Lie To Verify Eligibility


Not qualified for Obamacare’s subsidies? Just lie — Govt. to use ‘Honor System’ without verifying your eligibility. Sounds a lot like the same process for how Obama got elected.

If you thought the delay in the employer mandate was bad news for Obamacare, just wait. On Friday, Sarah Kliff and Sandhya Somashekhar of the Washington Post discovered that the Obama administration had buried in the Federal Register the announcement that the government won’t be able to verify whether or not applicants for Obamacare’s insurance exchange subsidies are actually qualified for the aid, in the 16 states that are setting up their own exchanges. Instead, until at least 2015, these states will be able to “accept the applicant’s attestation [regarding eligibility] without further verification.” [...]

Dem Sen. Bob Menendez Says Muslim Brotherhood Must Be Part Of New Egyptian Government - No He Is Wrong!

Dem Sen. Bob Menendez Says Muslim Brotherhood Must Be Part Of New Egyptian Government

Sen. Bob Menendez, D-N.J., believes the Muslim Brotherhood regime that was just deposed in Egypt due to dictatorial actions by the president needs to be part of the country’s political future.

“[A]n Egypt for all includes in my mind, participation from the Muslim Brotherhood,” Menendez said on “Meet the Press” earlier today. “But, you know, President Morsi himself acted rather dictatorially back in November when he said that his decrees were not subject to judicial review, when he said the constitutional assembly was not subject to — to judicial review. So at the end of the day, while I would have liked to have seen early elections and then see him test his support among the people and the people would have had a choice and, therefore, less likely to have them be further … radicalized, at the end of the day, that’s not what happened. So now the question is can we bring everybody together to create a more inclusive society in terms of the representation that it has in government? If we can do that, then Egypt has a possibility.”

Pilot Was Attempting His First Boeing 777 Landing at San Francisco Airport

Pilot Was Attempting His First Boeing 777 Landing at San Francisco Airport

FOX News

Asiana Airlines said Monday that the pilot in control of the Boeing 777 that crashed in San Francisco Saturday had little experience flying that type of plane and was landing one for the first time at that airport.

Asiana spokeswoman Lee Hyomin told the Associated Press Monday that Lee Gang-guk was trying to get used to the 777 during Saturday's crash landing. She says the pilot had nearly 10,000 hours flying other planes, including the Boeing 747, but had only 43 hours on the 777.

Hyomin told Reuters that co-pilot Lee Jeong-min has 3,220 hours of flying experience with the Boeing 777 and a total of 12,387 hours of flying experience, and was helping his colleague with the landing.

In all, four pilots were on the plane and worked in rotating shifts during the 10-and-a-half hour flight from Seoul. The pilots were described by Asiana chief executive Yoon Young-doo Sunday as veterans, with more than 10,000 hours of flight experience. "And one pilot has 9,000, almost 10,000 hours' experience," he said.

On Sunday, a National Transportation Safety Board official said a preliminary review of recordings taken from the black boxes of an Asiana Boeing 777 flight that crash-landed into San Francisco International Airport Saturday showed that the plane was traveling “significantly” slower than normal on its descent before the crew called for more acceleration and another chance to land.

The crash killed two people and injured at least 182. The plane, traveling from South Korea slammed into the runway on Saturday morning, breaking off its tail and catching fire before slumping to a stop that allowed some passengers to flee down emergency slides into thick smoke and a trail of debris. Firefighters doused the flames that burned through the fuselage with foam and water, and police officers on the ground threw utility knives up to crew members so they could cut the seat belts of those who remained trapped as rescue crews removed the injured.

NTSB Chairman Deborah Hersman said during a press conference Sunday afternoon that flight crew on Asiana Airlines Flight 214 had a visible approach to the runway and put the plane’s landing gear down, according to communications heard in the cockpit voice recorder.

Hersman said the plane’s target speed for a landing was 137 knots (158 mph), and the crew had no discussion of anomalies or concerns with the way the plane was coming in for the landing.

But seven seconds before the plane hit into a seawall, one of the crew members called on the pilots to increase speed. Information from the flight data recorder said the plane was going below the target landing speed, and the engine throttles advanced.

Four seconds before impact, a “stick shaker” – a device that emits an oral and physical warning to the crew that the plane is about to stall – sounded off, Hersman said.

The crew then asked to abort the landing and make another attempt 1.5 seconds before impact.

Hersman said there were no reports of wind conditions or weather playing a role in the crash landing.

The black box recordings were taken from the plane wreckage and analyzed at a lab in Washington D.C.

Authorities are also looking into what role the shutdown of glide slope -- a pilot navigational aid -- had in the crash.

Earlier Sunday, Hersman said on CBS' "Face the Nation" that the system is a ground-based aid that helps pilots stay on course while landing and it has been shut down at the San Francisco airport since June. The pilots, however, were notified before the crash that the system wasn't available.

Aircraft security experts told Reuters that the glide slope system is not essential for routine landings, but it's not unusual for airports to disable them for maintenance reasons.

"The pilots would have had to rely solely on visual cues to fly the proper glide path to the runway, and not have had available to them the electronic information that they typically have even in good weather at most major airports," said Captain Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger, who crash landed a plane in New York's Hudson River in 2009, told a CBS news affiliate, according to Reuters.

"What that means is that then the automatic warnings that would occur in the cockpit when you deviate below the desired electronic path wouldn't have been available either. So we don't know yet if that's a factor in this particular situation, but that's certainly something they'll be looking at," he said.

An NTSB team arrived Sunday at the scene of the crash to investigate.

Hersman said the NTSB is currently focusing on gathering perishable information from the accident scene and getting the airport fully operational again.

San Francisco Mayor Edwin Lee said at a news conference Saturday evening that all 291 passengers and 16 crew members onboard the plane had been accounted for, but officials said 182 people were taken to area hospitals. As of Sunday, 19 people remain hospitalized with six in critical condition, one being a child.

Dr. Margaret Knudson of the San Francisco General Hospital said among the 53 people they have treated, they have seen large numbers of abdominal injuries, some spinal fractures -- with a few causing paralysis -- and patients with head trauma.

She also said they were "surprised" to see a few patients with severe road rash, describing it as when someone crashes on a motorcycle without wearing leather.

“There’s going to be many, many more surgeries to come,” she added.

Joanne Hayes-White, the San Francisco Fire Department chief, said Sunday that it was "nothing short of a miracle that we had 123 people walk away from this." Hayes-White said there was major structural damage inside the plane, as some seats were buckled.

An Asiana airlines spokesperson told Reuters that the two passengers killed in the crash were Ye Meng Yuan and Wang Lin Jia, both 16-year-old students. Chinese state media said the students attended Jiangshan Middle School in eastern China.

Witnesses said that the plane appeared to sway back and forth, and kick up dust during the landing. Initial reports indicated that the plane's tail broke off from some impact. An aviation safety expert interviewed by the Associated Press suggested that part of the plane may have hit a seawall at the end of the runway.

Kenyan Cardinal, Politicians Chastise Disgusting and Shameful Obama For His Stance On Same-Sex Marriage

Kenyan Cardinal, Politicians Chastise Obama For His Stance On Same-Sex Marriage

Kenyan Cardinal John Njue, Archbishop of Nairobi and president of the Kenyan Episcopal Conference, joined other African leaders last week in open dismissal of President Obama’s urging to accept same-sex marriage.

“Those people who have already ruined their society…let them not become our teachers to tell us where to go,” said Njue in response to Obama’s statements promoting same-sex marriage. “I think we need to act according to our own traditions and our faiths.”

On June 28th, Obama started a tour of three countries in Africa by praising the recent U.S. Supreme Court decisions iregarding same-sex marriage, then criticizing his host nations for not accepting it. According to LifeSiteNews, homosexuality is illegal in 38 African nations, including Senegal.

“My basic view is that regardless of race, regardless of religion, regardless of gender, regardless of sexual orientation, when it comes to the law, people should be treated equally,” Obama said in Senegal. “And that’s a principle that I think applies universally.”

Obama’s comments were followed by a rebuke from Kenya’s Deputy President, William Ruto. Speaking at a Catholic Church, Ruto said, “Those who believe in other things, that is their business…We believe in God.”

“This nation, the nation of Kenya [is] sovereign and God-fearing,” Ruto added.

“America has made tremendous contribution to Kenya’s well-being and we are very grateful and as a government we are ready to receive any help from America that will improve the lives of our people,” Ruto remarked. “But for these other things we hear, it is none of our business as it goes against our customs and traditions.”

Permits Soar to Allow More Concealed Guns

Permits Soar to Allow More Concealed Guns

The Wall Street Journal

A growing number of Americans are getting permission to carry firearms in public—and under their clothes—a development that has sparked concern among some law-enforcement authorities.

Applications for "concealed-carry" permits are soaring in many states, some of which recently eased permit requirements. The numbers are driven in part by concern that renewed gun-control efforts soon could constrain access to weapons, along with heightened interest in self-defense in the wake of mass killings in Newtown, Conn., and Aurora, Colo.

Since July 1 of last year, Florida has granted more than 173,000 new concealed-carry permits, up 17% from the year before and twice as many as five years ago, for a total of about 1.09 million permits in the state.

Ohio, meanwhile, is on pace to nearly double last year's total of 65,000 new permits, which would be nearly three times as many as in 2007. And Oklahoma, Tennessee, Wyoming and Nebraska all have nearly matched or surpassed last year's totals with half of 2013 still to go.

A dozen states surveyed for this article, including Texas, Utah and Wisconsin, issued 537,000 permits last year, an 18% increase compared with a year prior and more than double the number issued in 2007. Early figures for 2013 show many states are on pace for their biggest year ever.

About eight million Americans had concealed-carry permits as of last year, the Government Accountability Office said in what it called a conservative estimate.

"I suppose it's the same reason people are reporting gun sales are up and ammunition sales are up," said Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine, referring to concern among gun owners about the recent push for gun control. "It's nothing unique in Ohio.…It seems to be a consistent trend across the board."

Obama's Pentagon Hides key Benghazi Witness from Congress

Pentagon Hides key benghazi Witness from Congress

Congressional investigators, working on the Benghazi attacks, would very much like to talk to a key witness, Marine Corps Col. George Bristol, now retired, who was in a key position at the US African Command at the time of the attacks but the Pentagon refuses to say where he is at.

Major Robert Firman told CBS News, that the Pentagon cannot force retired officers to testify to congress. Congress can, but the Department of Defense refuses to name his location. Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah is livid. It is believed that Bristol has some key information that could expose why no troops were sent to Benghazi. The Pentagon made Gen Ham available after he was retired.

At his retirement, Bristol told the troops that a great evil has descended upon Africa (Islamic terrorists) and that they needed to be stomped out. The statement appeared in Stars and Stripes magazine.

Pentagon spokesman, Firmin was quoted telling Lindsay graham, R-SC that,"The Department of Defense has been entirely forthcoming on all matters related to our response to the attacks in Benghazi from the outset." He pointed out that either House or Senate committees can subpoena Bristol if they want to. If they knew where he was, that is.

Major Robert Firmin, the Pentagon spokesman is also the same spokesman who said that there was never a stand down order. Gregory Hicks testified later that Lieutenant Colonel Gibson, was told not to board the plane to Benghazi but did not say who gave the stand down order.

PJ Media reported that Gen. Ham was ordered to stand down or his deputy would assume command. Gen ham denied that charge in congressional hearings. Ham retired a couple of months later and was replaced by his deputy. Congressional committees hope that Bristol can clarify the events as they took place.

Kids Cheer as School District Opts Out of Michelle Obama’s Lunch Menu - God Bless these Smart Kids!

Kids Cheer as School District Opts Out of Michelle Obama’s Lunch Menu


Students in at least one school district will be saved from Michelle Obama’s “restrictive” federal school lunch takeover.

The federal school lunch guidelines that garnered much discontent among students, school staff and parents, are set to fully go into effect in the fall.

But students in the Catlin, Illinois district won’t be enduring the rumbling tummies of other students around the country.

"We're going to have the freedom to do more stuff with our own program, and we want to give people options," Superintendent Gary Lewis told The News-Gazette.

School officials decided to pull out of the National School Lunch Program earlier this spring, after seeing a decline in the number of meals that were served and too much food going into the garbage last year, the paper reported.

"When the federal government changed the nutrition guidelines, they became very restrictive," said Lewis. "If a kid is hungry, they're not going to be able to concentrate in class. We need to work to make sure they're full. That will increase their potential.

"We had to not only offer vegetables but vegetables of a certain color, and we had to offer them so many times a week. I will eat kale. But if I tried to get my 11- and 7-year-old to eat kale, they will look at me like, 'What are you putting on my plate?'"

The superintendent told the paper he received “numerous complaints from students and parents about the new food offerings.”

As a result of opting out, the school district will be increasing its meal prices “slightly” to compensate for the loss of the government subsidy.

Catlin is the latest of many school districts throughout the nation to opt out of the Michelle Obama-promoted overhaul.

Even Though Company Offers To Put On Fireworks Display For Free For Marines, Obama Still Cancelled It


Even Though Company Offers To Put On Fireworks Display For Free For Marines, Obama Still Cancelled It

Military members and their families at North Carolina’s Marine Corps base Camp Lejeune are scratching their heads after the base would not reverse its decision to cancel its fireworks display despite a Pennsylvania company offering to do it for free.

In early May, the government announced the fireworks would be cancelled at both Camp Lejeune and Fort Bragg. Back then, budget cuts known as sequestration were blamed.

“During a period in which federal employees are scheduled to be furloughed due to sequestration, expending limited funds and paying personnel overtime to manage a non-mission essential event just didn’t seem a prudent use of finite government resources in [General Thomas Gorry]‘s mind,” Nat Fahy, a spokesperson with Camp Lejeune, said at the time.

But when the Zambelli Family from Pennsylvania, which has put on the display for the base before, heard about the cuts, it offered to do the show for free.

The government turned them down.

Why? Because there are too many other costs associated with putting on the display that don’t involve just the fireworks.

Crowds across America protest NSA in 'Restore the Fourth' movement

Crowds across America protest NSA in 'Restore the Fourth' movement

FOX News

Crowds across the U.S. gathered Thursday to protest the federal government’s surveillance of the American public – recently highlighted by leaker Edward Snowden – as part of pro-Forth Amendment rallies, chanting “NSA go away!”

More than 400 people gathered in New York and Washington D.C., while around 300 people were estimated to be in San Francisco.

Protests were also scheduled in 100 other cities, according to the organizers, “Restore the Fourth,” who describe themselves as a grassroots, non-partisan movement. The organization estimated that national turnout would be around 10,000 people, Reuters reports.

“Our demands are very simple: We think these programs which violate the constitutional rights of Americans need to end,” Ben Doernberg, an organizer of the New York City protest, told Fox News.

The Fourth Amendment protects Americans from unlawful search and seizure.

The online community also rallied around the protests Thursday, as websites like Boing Boing! Posted messages about the National Security Agency.

"Happy 4th of July! Immediately stop your unconstitutional spying on the world's internet users -- The People," a statement on the website said, according to Reuters.

Russian President Putin Signs Law Banning Gay Adoptions

Russian President Putin Signs Law Banning Gay Adoptions

- Kremlin statement said the measure is intended to guarantee children a "harmonious" upbringing

- Law prohibits adoption by same-sex foreign couples whose homeland recognizes their union as marriage

Moscow-Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a law on Wednesday banning the adoption of children by same-sex couples, as part of an increasingly conservative agenda the Kremlin is pursuing since his return to power.
Earlier this week Putin signed another law banning gay "propaganda," which human rights groups say has fuelled hate crimes against homosexuals.

Putin, who has embraced the Russian Orthodox Church as a moral authority and harnessed its influence as a source of political support, has championed socially conservative values since starting a new, six-year term in May 2012.

The latest law aims to protect children from "dictated non-traditional sexual behavior" and rid them of "distresses of soul and stresses, which according to psychologists' research, are often experienced by children raised by same-sex parents," according to a fact sheet on the Kremlin's website.

July 4th ~ Happy Independence Day



The Declaration of Independence In Congress, July 4, 1776 ( a little something from the Declaration of Independence)

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed, by their Creator, with certain Inalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.

That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object, evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security."


Independence Day is a uniquely American holiday, celebrating not only the formation of a new country through the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, but the birth of a new culture as well.

Across America, military and civilian families and individuals alike will typically mark the day with picnics and cookouts celebrating American cuisine, singing patriotic songs and telling stories - perhaps even playing a pick-up baseball game - before bringing the day to a close by watching the spectacular flashes and flares of fireworks.

We owe the freedom we have to do this to our Veterans, our troops today and to our Founding Fathers. At Theodore's World blog we celebrate and thank our Veterans and troops every day. And today we give ithem a special thank you from all our hearts!! ~Chrissie

Lois Lerner Will Not Testify Before House Committee Unless Given Immunity

Lois Lerner Will Not Testify Before House Committee Unless Given Immunity. Trey Gowdy: No Immunity to Lois Lerner Until We Can Corroborate Her Information

Embattled IRS official Lois Lerner will not testify before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee unless she’s given immunity from prosecution, her lawyer told POLITICO Tuesday.

“They can obtain her testimony tomorrow by doing it the easy way … immunity,” William W. Taylor III said in a phone interview. “That’s the way to resolve all of this.”

The comments reflect the hard-line approach Lerner, the former head of the IRS division that scrutinized conservative groups, and her legal team are taking in defending her role in the agency’s scandal. Taylor, a founding partner of Zuckerman Spaeder LLP, is even shrugging off the possibility that the full House might vote to hold Lerner in contempt. “None of this matters,” he said.

“I mean, nobody likes to be held in contempt of Congress, of course, but the real question is one that we’re fairly confident about, and I don’t think any district judge in the country would hold that she waived.”

Trey Gowdy, on Fox News Sunday was asked about immunity for Lois Lerner. Gowdy said he's not 'buying a used car over the phone'.

"I would hope that Lois Lerner would feel motivated at some point to share the information she has with Congress, whether that's in the form of a proper or a limited immunity agreement. I'd like have to her information, but I've got to be guaranteed her information is accurate, and truthful and complete.

I am committed to getting to the bottom of what happened with the IRS -- speaking of lack of oh trust in the institutions of government. But I'm not going to offer, I'm not going to buy a used car over the telephone. I'm not going to give immunity to Lois Lerner before I hear what she -- what she has to say and before I can corroborate or not corroborate her information"

101st seeking to save 'Band of Brothers' regiment

ARMY Times

FORT CAMPBELL, KY. — The 101st Airborne Division is trying to save its illustrious 506th Infantry Regiment, whose origins date to World War II’s fabled “Band of Brothers,” from deactivation under the Army’s massive restructuring.

The Army announced this week that at least 12 combat brigades nationwide are to be eliminated by 2017 under sweeping military reductions, among them the 4th Brigade Combat Team at Fort Campbell, Ky.

The long-term reorganization seeks to reduce the Army’s size from a high of about 570,000 members at the peak of the Iraq war to 490,000 to shrink spending and reflect the country’s current military needs as wars in Iraq and Afghanistan end.

The brigade traces its lineage to the 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, created in 1942.

The 506th was among several parachute regiments created to sneak behind enemy lines in the war. Nicknamed “Currahee,” which is a Native American Cherokee term for “stands alone,” the regiment parachuted into Normandy during the D-Day invasion in 1944. The regiment raced to liberate Europe amid bouts of fierce fighting in Bastogne, Belgium and then overran Hitler’s famed “Eagle’s Nest” in Germany.

The “Band of Brothers” book by historian Stephen Ambrose and the subsequent HBO miniseries about the men of Easy Company won national acclaim, propelling the unit to wide fame among the public. The 2001 miniseries was produced by Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks and followed the soldiers from paratrooper training through D-Day and the end of the war.

Brig. Gen. Mark Stammer, acting senior commander of the 101st Airborne Division, said the division wants to preserve the regiment’s two battalions, along with its flags and its historical legacy.

He said during a news conference Thursday at the post on the Tennessee-Kentucky state line that the regiment’s battalions should be transferred to two of the division’s three remaining infantry brigades.

The Army’s restructuring plan also calls for adding an additional battalion, which is between 600-800 soldiers, to its remaining infantry and armor brigades. Adding the battalion was a recommendation from commanders in Iraq and Afghanistan who said it would beef up the fighting capabilities of the brigades when they go to war.

If Washington’s defense and budget planners approve of such a plan, he said “the 506th will live, but it will just live in another brigade combat team.”

Following World War II, the regiment was deactivated and reactivated a number of times in its history and moved to other locations as the Army reorganized in the post-war era.

The 506th deployed to the Vietnam War for four years, winning a presidential unit citation for actions in the A Shau Valley. The regiment’s soldiers served in Iraq for a 2004-2005 stint before the regiment returned to Iraq from late 2005 through 2007 in Baghdad as the new 4th Brigade Combat Team under the 101st Airborne Division. The 4th Brigade is currently on its third deployment to Afghanistan.

John O’Brien, the installation historian at Fort Campbell, said the regimental flag with its battle streamers carries the history of the unit, marking the battles and campaigns from World War II to recent times. If the 1st Battalion, 506th Infantry Regiment were moved to a new unit, that regimental flag would continue to fly, he said.

“History, heritage and values … those things provide the glue that holds the unit together,” O’Brien said. “You can imagine how powerful it is to say, ‘I am member of the Band of Brothers.’”

Jim Martin is one of the few surviving World War II veterans from the original 506th regiment. At 92, he just returned from a trip to Europe to visit locations, including the coast of France, where he and fellow soldiers fought.

Martin, who lives near Dayton, Ohio, said the Army command needs to exercise care when it makes changes to special units such as the 506th. “If you disband them, you’re not going to get them back very easily.”

He said the regiment’s original commander, Col. Robert Sink, wanted his soldiers to stay together from their initial basic training through paratrooper training and on into combat to build trust among the soldiers. Although he admits he’s not one for emotion, he worried that splitting up the regiment’s battalions would be disruptive for the soldiers.

“The problem with doing that is you lose the unit cohesiveness,” he said. “Anytime you move around or change, you lose that.”

Joe Alexander, 67, of Lenoir City, Tenn., who was a second lieutenant in the regiment during the Vietnam War, said while he understands that the Army needs to cut down its size, but he was hoping they would be spared when the Army spread the brigade cuts throughout the country.

“We are competitive and we all want our regiments to be saved,” he said. “But it does seem like they could have picked another one that had less of a history.”

I sure hope they will be able to save it. It is so important.

Obama Not Wanting Blacks to Succeed Tells Africans Can’t Have Cars And Air Conditioners Or The “Planet Will Boil Over”

Obama: Africans Can’t Have Cars And Air Conditioners Or The “Planet Will Boil Over”

Raising millions out of abject poverty in Africa would engender a global warming disaster if done before “we find new ways of producing energy,” President Obama said Saturday at a town hall event in Johannesburg, South Africa.

“Ultimately, if you think about all the youth that everybody has mentioned here in Africa, if everybody is raising living standards to the point where everybody has got a car and everybody has got air conditioning, and everybody has got a big house, well, the planet will boil over — unless we find new ways of producing energy.”

Wild Thing's comment............

If I was black I would be so ticked that he would speak like this, think like this toward blacks.

We know how he feels about everyone, but there still are many blacks that will not wake up. This statement by Obama ought to wake up a few more.

Obama's War on Women! ObamaCare Kicks Wives Off Husbands' Health Plans

ObamaCare Kicks Wives Off Husbands' Health Plans

Dumped: An unintended consequence of the abomination that is called ObamaCare is the dropping of wives from husbands' employer-provided health care insurance. It's a de facto war on women.

ObamaCare is filled with grinding mandates. One of them requires that children remain covered by their parents' health care plans until they're 26 when their parents' insurance "provides dependent coverage of children."

The government calls this "protecting young adults." But insuring children long past the day they are dependent on their parents exposes companies, which will bear the added costs of paying the inevitable higher premiums. And in some cases, the extra expense could be significant.

So at many companies, something has to go. Quite often, the rational response to rising health insurance costs is to drop spouses, more specifically wives, from insurance plans. Sometimes it's the husbands who must go. But benefits experts have confirmed to MarketWatch that those who are kicked out of plans "tend to be women."

Employers also have a strong incentive to drop spouses because of a "per life" fee that ObamaCare requires from companies that insure their workers. That fee is now $1 or $2 per life. But it will be substantially more — $65 — in 2014.

The trend of dumping spouses will only accelerate when the federal health exchanges are open next year, health care experts told MarketWatch.

Employers are reluctant to leave spouses without coverage, and the exchanges will give the suddenly uninsured a place to land.

But it's unlikely the place they'll want to be after having become accustomed to the superior coverage from their spouses' plans.

Again, so much for President Obama's promise that under the Democrats' overhaul, "If you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan."

The Democrats' "reform" has a malign knack for decoupling people from the health care arrangements they've worked so hard for so many years to achieve, and spouses aren't the only ones affected.

Many employees will lose their coverage when employers figure out that it's more cost-effective for them to stop insuring their workers and just let them fall into the exchanges.

How many? More than a few. The business journal McKinsey Quarterly surveyed 1,300 employers and found that "Overall, 30% of employers will definitely or probably stop offering ESI (Employer Sponsored Insurance) in the years after 2014."

But it's likely that a larger portion will actually make that choice as companies learn more about ObamaCare.

FUBO! And those that voted for you.

Librarians (pawns for Obama) Will Be Trained To Sell Obamacare (socialized medicine that kills people)

Librarians Will Be Trained To Sell Obamacare

The American Library Association announced on Sunday that public libraries across the country will be partnering with the Department of Health and Human Services to help millions of uninsured Americans sign up for Obamacare.

So the public library – the institution whose foundational principles are the preservation of intellectual freedom and the unbiased promotion of learning – will become politicized to advance the Obama administration’s agenda.

With the emphasis on web-based enrollment under the Affordable Care Act, Americans without computers are at a disadvantage to register for the “reasonable health insurance” that will soon be available to them. And “that is where public libraries come in,” explained American Libraries magazine. In addition to providing computer and Internet access to patrons, librarians will receive training to help people navigate through the various healthcare plans and choose the plan that suits their needs. It has also been suggested that libraries host healthcare-awareness events and hand out information to foster “health care literacy” in the coming months.

Ghetto Con Artist Obama Blows $100 Million Tax Payer Money on Family’s African Trip But Cancels Marines’ July 4th Fireworks

Independence Day celebrations have been canceled at the Camp Lejeune Marine Corps Base and at the Army's Fort Bragg, both in North Carolina. The annual July Fourth celebration also has been scrapped at the Marine Corps Logistics Base in Albany, Ga.

Obama Blows $100 Million Tax Payer Money on Family’s African Trip But Cancels Marines’ July 4th Fireworks

Obama canceled Independence Day celebrations at the Camp Lejeune Marine Corps Base and at the Army’s Fort Bragg

FOX Nation

The Fourth of July won’t have a patriotic boom in the sky over some military bases because budget cuts and furloughed workers also mean furloughed fireworks.

Independence Day celebrations have been canceled at the Camp Lejeune Marine Corps Base and at the Army’s Fort Bragg, both in North Carolina. The annual July Fourth celebration also has been scrapped at the Marine Corps Logistics Base in Albany, Ga.

The reason is money — namely the lack of it.

The failure in Washington to follow up a 2011 budget pact with additional spending cuts meant $85 billion across-the-board cuts that began in March. Budgets tightened, the military took a major hit and many federal workers absorbed pay cuts through forced furloughs.

When the decision was made to forgo fireworks at Camp Lejeune, the commanding general, Brig. Gen. Thomas Gorry, said the cancellation would “ensure that we can mitigate the fiscal challenges we are currently facing.”

Wild Thing's comment............

He hates the Military and any thing that bespeaks of patriotism or American exceptionalism. He is a traitorous, treacherous nobody who’s hell bent on the destruction of America. He is the personification of evil.

His priority is silencing 'patriotic nationalism' for America and any event that evokes it, including public tours of the White House AND DISPLAYS OF PATRIOTISM BY OUR TROOPS. What's NASA doing lately besides Muslim outreach? Sending a little rocket to the sun? How exciting! NOT

Dictator Obama Tells “His Press Corps” To “Behave” After They Ask Too Many Questions

Obama Tells “His Press Corps” To “Behave” After They Ask Too Many Questions

Barack Obama told American reporters to “behave” during a joint press conference with President Jacob Zuma of South Africa on Saturday.

Obama was warning U.S. journalists not to ask too many questions in one, complaining that “my press” tried too squeeze “three or four or five questions in there,” complimenting Zuma on his more compliant media.

(The Associated Press noted that “both U.S. and South African reporters asked multi-part questions,” though seconded Obama’s description of U.S. journalists as “his press corps.”)

Press freedom is being challenged in South Africa, where the ruling African National Congress (ANC) chafes at criticism of its difficulties and resents exposure of its numerous corruption scandals. Television networks are dominated by the government-owned South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC), which favors a pro-ANC line, and Internet media growth has been stunted by the state telecommunications monopoly, Telkom.

Yet Zuma, though frequently at loggerheads with local media, would hardly dare tell them to “behave.”

Obama’s admonition of American journalists is not the first time he has rebuked them in the presence of a foreign leader, on foreign soil.

Wild Thing's comment..................

Obama treats everyone as though they are beneath him. I really think he believes this.

Vietnam Veteran suffering from Agent Orange caught in VA benefits backlog

A Vietnam veteran has been waiting for more than two years for government benefits to help pay for treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder and exposure to Agent Orange, WSMV Channel 4 reported.

Tennessee resident Kenneth Moore was a 19-year-old stationed in Thailand during the Vietnam War, and was sent several times to Vietnam for radio work. He recalls the strange powdery herbicide being sprayed on trees that landed on his clothes. When he returned to the states, he says, he began taking medicine to help with the nightmares of war, which still haunt him.

So when Moore began having lung and heart problems, he filled out the Department of Veterans Affairs’ disability forms.

Now Moore is one of an estimated 5,000 Tennessee veterans mired in a backlog, waiting more than 125 days for their disability claims, according to a WSMV investigation.

Upon his discharge, Moore’s papers state “Vietnam Campaign Medal,” and he was placed on the Agent Orange registry. His place on the registry came after Moore was diagnosed with heart disease by an Agent Orange specialist with the VA. He was also diagnosed by another doctor with PTSD.

Still, the VA denied Moore his claim twice over a two-year period, the station reports. The VA said there was no proof of PTSD and no proof he was exposed to Agent Orange. And, because he was originally stationed in Thailand, they said there was no proof he was even ever in Vietnam.

"It's just like, 'You're a liar,' you know," Moore told WSMV.

When the station inquired about Moore’s case, the VA stated that a paystub submitted by Moore’s wife, Judy, proves he was in Vietnam and exposed to Agent Orange.

When asked why Judy Moore had to provide the proof, the VA said it is still operating with paper files, not electronic records, so it’s harder to find the information.

The delays mean veterans are growing older and, in some cases, sicker while they wait for technology to catch up, and Kenneth Moore is afraid many of the vets are running out of time.

"It's not just me. It's thousands and thousands of veterans out there that they'd done like this. And they've finally given up, or they've died from this mess," he told the station.

Disgusting how our Veterans are treated.

Allen West “The time draws near to teach this usurper and charlatan the lesson our forefathers taught King George

Allen West

This week we’ll celebrate the 237th anniversary of our independence. But are we a free people? SCOTUS made an ill-conceived ruling believing the choice of sexual behavior should trump the peoples’s referendum. We are free to love anyone or anything we desire in America, but that does not correlate to rights beyond the unalienable ones Jefferson articulated 237 years ago.

In California we have a state-funded grant for the Los Angeles Unified School District to abuse the concept of public education by turning public schools into indoctrination factories, forcing children to spout the joys of Obamacare.

The district listed as a primary outcome for its project, “Teens trained to be messengers to family members.” Covered California spokeswoman Sarah Soto-Taylor said staff have not questioned this goal. She stated, “We have confidence that the model LA Unified brought to the table will be successful in reaching our target population, which includes family members of students.” LA Unified will also use tax-paid staff to promote ObamaCare through phone calls to students’ homes, in-class presentations, and meetings with employees eligible for ObamaCare’s taxpayer-covered healthcare, the grant award says.

Obama said he would fundamentally transform America. The time draws near to teach this usurper and charlatan the lesson our forefathers taught King George III. We will not be ruled by arrogance and edict.
