OBAMACARE SCREW-UP: Rand Paul’s Son Signed Up For Medicaid Without His Permission
  5 Jan 2014     9:14 pm

Earlier today, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) displayed his son’s Medicaid card.  Sen. Paul has been trying to enroll his son through the Kentucky exchange, but was signed up for Medicaid instead.  That wasn’t the intention since the senator is trying to pay for his son’s insurance.  Paul tried to correct the mistake, but to no avail.
“For a month they wouldn’t talk to him because they said they weren’t sure he existed. He had to go down to the welfare office, prove his existence, then next thing we know, we get …

Troops Are On The Way…To Secure ‘The New State Of Palestine?’
  5 Jan 2014     11:39 am

Uh, what’s going on here? Are we seriously going to be sending American troops to secure the new state of Palestine? Well, that’s seems to be a consideration within the Obama administration, albeit based on unconfirmed reports.
Secretary of State John Kerry is proposing to offer up US troops to help secure the borders of the new state of Palestine, according to some unconfirmed news reports coming out of Israel.
How plausible is the possibility? And would it be a good idea, or, as some military analysts argue, would the White House …

Mitt Romney Can Sure Teach Liberals How To Be A Class Act
  5 Jan 2014     11:31 am

Last week, MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry launched a vicious attack against Mitt Romney’s biracial family to score political points.  Romney has a black grandson, which the folks at MSNBC thought would be funny if he were turned into a political punching bag.  Perry apologized on Twitter. And did so again on her show earlier this morning.  Yet, despite the vitriol, the Romneys hold no “ill will” against Perry, or anyone at MSNBC.
Romney admitted on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace to making mistakes of his own. He understands that this can …

Feminist Says All Sex Between Men and Woman Is RAPE
  4 Jan 2014     9:48 am

It’s back! The “all sex equals rape” talking point is back.  Granted, I thought this most idiotic subject of conversation within feminist circles died when Andrea Dworkin herself croaked, but it’s reared its ugly head with a vengeance in a post titled “ PIV is always rape, ok?”   What is PIV? It means penis in vagina.  Yeah, you can see where this is going.
The blog post was published on a site called radical wind – or witchwind – that claims to be “blowing through female outerspace. [sic]”  Well, someone …

Doctor Waits Two Hours For Permission To Conduct Obamacare Surgery
  4 Jan 2014     9:47 am

Do you need surgical procedure that’s covered under Obamacare? Well, that could take hours to approve. In Chicago, a doctor waited for two hours for authorization, but was put on hold due to paperwork delays.
Paperwork problems almost delayed suburban Chicago resident Sheri Zajcew’s scheduled surgery Thursday, but Dr. John Venetos decided to operate without a routine go-ahead from the insurance company. That was after Venetos’ office manager spent two hours on hold with the insurer Thursday, trying to get an answer about whether the patient needed prior authorization for the …

Study: Concealed Carry Laws Reduce Gun Violence
  4 Jan 2014     9:46 am

Well, it’s confirmed; gun control only creates more gun violence and carnage.  Granted, conservatives have know this for years.  It’s just that our liberal friends, who are slower and less-educated on this issue, have been a constant pain in the ass in trying to keep their little crusade to render the Constitution irrelevant alive. Well, it’s over, folks.  In a new study in Applied Economic Letters, Quinnipiac economist Mark Gius noted that:
Using data for the period 1980 to 2009 and controlling for state and year fixed effects,the results of the present study …

The Denver Post Said What About Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson
  29 Dec 2013     7:37 pm

The Denver Post is at it again; this time smearing Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson after his victory over A&E.  Robertson was “suspended indefinitely” over remarks he made about homosexuality.   His suspension was recently lifted by A&E.  Apparently, some people at the Denver Post were irked by that decision.
The feathers are no longer flying. For now, the “Duck Dynasty” debacle is settled. The network, A&E, has welcomed patriarch and hate-speech spewer Phil Robertson back into the fold. The hiatus that was to be his punishment for homophobic and racist comments …

Controversy Erupts After Group Punishes Paramedic For Driving Sick Child To The Hospital
  29 Dec 2013     7:12 pm

When you see a child in desperate need of medical attention, your next move would to call 911, or take the child to the hospital yourself, right?  Well, one paramedic did that and got suspended by his local volunteer First Aid and Rescue Squad. Why? He wasn’t twenty-one.
That’s right.  A twenty-year old volunteer paramedic drove a four-year old having seizure to the hospital and was punished for it.

According to the Times Herald-Record, Stephen Sawyer, who’s also a volunteer firefighter and part-time police officer, drove the girl to the hospital on …

The Chamber Of Commerce ‘Insane’ War On Conservatism
  29 Dec 2013     11:48 am

Allahpundit at Hot Air asked, “will 2014 be the year of the RINO?”  Well, the Chamber of Commerce is making sure it will be with their $50 million dollar effort to elect more centrist Republicans (aka liberals who don’t want their taxes raised)  to Congress.
GOP House leaders are taking steps to impose discipline on wavering committee chairmen and tea-party factions. Meanwhile, major donors and advocacy groups, such as the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and American Crossroads, are preparing an aggressive effort to groom and support more centrist Republican candidates for …

Female Marines Can’t Complete Physical Training Tests, But Will Be Sent To The Front Lines Regardless
  29 Dec 2013     11:20 am

I have a confession to make: I’m not against women serving on the front lines.  There are plenty of women who can kick butt, BUT they have to be able to pass the physical training tests.  No special treatment, no dumbing down of standards; if they want to be like the men serving on the front lines, they’re going to have to pass the same physical training requirements – end of story.  Well, that doesn’t seem to be the case.
Tom Bowman at NPR reported on December 29:
Starting Jan. 1, every woman …

Iowa Asks Everyone Who Applied For Obamacare To Reapply Due To Glitches
  29 Dec 2013     10:43 am

All I can say is hope and change.
DES MOINES, Iowa —The Iowa Department of Human Services said Friday that Iowans who have applied through the federal health care portal should reapply using the websites or call center.
Officials said they were notified by federal officials that there would be an additional delay in getting needed information needed to process Iowan’s applications from HealthCare.gov.
“We are working hard to ensure that Iowans who applied through HealthCare.gov will be enrolled in health coverage. We are encouraging Iowans who applied at the federal portal to reapply …

DNC Sends Email Freaking Out About Obama Being Impeached
  29 Dec 2013     10:35 am

The DNC is freaking out about Republicans impeaching Obama if they have an electoral victory in the 2014 midterms.  Right now, 2014 is looking like a landslide year for Republicans due to Obamacare, which partially explains the panic amongst liberals.  This was detailed in an email titled “impeachment,” which I also received.  Hey, signing up for those lefty newsletters lets you know how these people are thinking. And they’re wildly entertaining, especially the Wendy Davis ones.
What do these people all have in common?,” the email asked, featuring quotes from Republican Sen. …

These People Are The Undisputed Masters Of Firearms Sales
  28 Dec 2013     2:05 pm

It’s really the seat of irony, but when it comes to firearms sales; liberals are unmatched.  As soon as their anti-gun rhetoric rears its ugly head, every law-abiding citizens rushes to their local gun store.  Let’s take a look at Colorado.
It had two tragic shootings back-to-back.  It enacted atrocious anti-gun laws in the aftermath of the 2012 Aurora shooting, which led to the recalls of two pro-gun control state senators and the resignation of a third.  In the meantime, Colorado has seen record Christmas Day gun sales.
Coloradoans, apparently, like their …

Liberals Are Going To Freak Out Over This New School Regulation
  28 Dec 2013     1:52 pm

Liberals are going to be driven to insanity over Oklahoma’s new law requiring schools recite the Pledge of Allegiance – every day.
A new piece of legislation is looking to make the Pledge of Allegiance a staple of all public schools at a time when other educational institutions are abandoning the oath.
The bill, filed ahead of the Oklahoma state legislature’s 2014 session, would require all public elementary schools in the state to recite the Pledge of Allegiance daily, the Associated Press reported. Additionally, the legislation would require every public school in …

Wait!? How Long Has This Guy Been Trying To Enroll In Obamacare?
  28 Dec 2013     1:37 pm

Ike Brannon wrote in the Weekly Standard on December 26 his attempts for enroll for Obamacare benefits for a month.  All of which have ended in failure.
After a month of trying, I still can’t complete an application to join the D.C. Health Exchange. For a week, the Obamacare marketplace asked me to prove my citizenship, my daughter’s existence, and my fixed address in the District of Columbia, but it would not allow me to submit the requested material.
That changed, slightly, yesterday when it started allowing me to submit those things, …

Scott Brown’s Epic Smackdown Of Obamacare
  22 Dec 2013     2:38 pm

Former Republican Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown may be mulling another run in New Hampshire.  He’s relocating – and incumbent Democratic Senator Jeanne Shaheen is looking vulnerable.  Granted, Brown is a little moderate for my tastes, but in the left-leaning Northeast; he’s perfect.
Last month, at the Ronald Reagan Dinner in Scotts County, Iowa, you saw how “effective” Brown is at connecting with voters, according to the Washington Post’s Jennifer Rubin. Earlier this week, Rubin said that Brown could easily deflect the inevitable carpetbagger attack that will be lobbed against him.
In fiscally tight New Hampshire, Shaheen’s …

Obamacare Cuts Off Health Care For Woman With Rare Disease
  22 Dec 2013     12:55 pm

Meet the latest victim of Obamacare: Tiffany St. Cyr.  She’s a resident of California and has a rare disease called Achalasia.  It causes her esophagus  to become so weak that she cannot push food towards her stomach. In short, it leads to starvation. She needs treatment, but cannot pay for it due to Obamacare
The Mayo Clinic says there is no cure for the disease, but its “symptoms can usually be managed with minimally invasive (endoscopic) therapy or surgery.”
This where the healthcare changes come into play for St. Cyr. According to the Paradise …

HOLY MOLY: 1 In 4 Voters Already Know Someone Who Has Lost Insurance Under Obamacare…
  22 Dec 2013     12:10 pm

Last month, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the DNC chair, said, “you’re darn right” Democrats will  run on Obamacare in 2014.  Well, that may not be such a good idea, but conservatives are hoping they do anyway.  After all, a hallmark of liberalism is to advocate things that make you feel good, which aren’t necessarily grounded in fact.  Case in point, it’s not the best electoral strategy to campaign on something that has screwed 1 in 4 Americans out of health insurance.  Moreover, the figure is the same for people who know …

Gay TMZ Editor Rips Into A&E Hypocrisy Over Duck Dynasty Drama
  21 Dec 2013     3:22 pm

Harvey Levin, TMZ founder, is just appalled by A&E’s suspension of Duck Dynasty Phil Robertson.  He views this whole debacle as abject hypocrisy.  Levin, who is gay, tweeted earlier this week that he doesn’t agree with Phil’s remarks about homosexuality, but doesn’t find them hateful.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
He continues his evisceration of the network.

Moreover, as Greg Pollowitz at National Review noted yesterday, A&E – for all their outrage – is still airing a lot of Duck Dynasty episodes.

 
Video has surfaced of other controversial statements by Robertson on gays from before A&E hired him to …

Duck Dynasty Fallout Speaks Volumes…About Gay Bigotry
  21 Dec 2013     2:54 pm

While some might not agree with Phil Robertson’s views on homosexuality, it should be hardly a surprise to A&E.  Social conservatism and religion are the show’s bread and butter. And for the network to “indefinitely suspend” Robertson out of some sort of profound discovery of his views on this subject, is disingenuous in the extreme.  He admits he’s a “Bible-thumper.”
Additionally, saying the homosexuality is a sin rests with religious teaching; it’s not hateful. There’s a difference.  Although, if anything, this whole fiasco speaks volumes about gay bigotry.
Atlantic writer Brandon Ambrosino, …
