California Obamacare is failing and is trying to hide its failure.
Sharyl Attkisson has turned her journalistic attention to the California health exchange at the Daily Signal: “Incompetence, Mismanagement Plague California’s Obamacare Insurance Exchange.”
Consultant Aiden Hill became a “foxhole convert” to Obamacare in July of 2010 when he lost his insurance, had a serious medical issue and couldn’t get a new policy.
“I lived through a health care nightmare. That’s one reason Read more [...]
Facebook knows the things you are about to say and the things you decide not to say.
Ever wondered why some of your most powerful posts suddenly vaporize when you hit the "post" button? I have. After reading this, I don't wonder as much.
(In times of severe frustration with the same post being deleted numerous consecutive times—actually, a similar one, since I have to rewrite—I've finally resorted to typing elsewhere, then pasting. It gets me past the barrier but I’m not thrilled to have Read more [...]
Funny how people who constantly complain that taxes aren’t high enough for “the rich” don’t seem to be able to pay their own.
From Jillian Kay Melchior at the National Review: “MSNBC’s Touré Has the Taxman on His Case.”
Touré Neblett, co-host of MSNBC’s The Cycle, owes more than $59,000 in taxes, according to public records reviewed by National Review.
In September 2013, New York issued a state tax warrant to Neblett and his wife, Rita Nakouzi, for $46,862.68. Six months Read more [...]
Youth in America are the key to the future. Thus, they are the main target of secularists.
On my travels throughout this great nation, I have the privilege to speak to youth in public or private schools and occasionally churches. Last week while touring in Iowa I had the chance to address a mixed crowd that included a high school church youth group. My first thought when speaking to youth is, Awesome, I can teach and equip these kids with what they need to stand against the secularists Read more [...]
Only a few generations ago, Americans were anchored in concrete ethics, felt the need to instruct their posterity in biblical morality, and understood the value of the founding fathers’ labors. Lamentably, our culture's values and system of thought have drastically changed. Americans now abhor absolute ethical standards, public education now has postmodern relativism as the teaching standard, and citizens are forfeiting their role as the people in government. How did our country digress? The answer Read more [...]
I was thinking we could make it to 2017-2020 before experiencing Interesting Times. But now I wonder…
The endgame for Greece in the Euro has arrived. Russia and perhaps even China are rumored to be ready to swoop in, providing support in return for Russian military bases.
The Federal Reserve is insolvent—leveraged more than double what Lehman Brothers was a few years ago when its collapse nearly acted as a Black Hole to the entire world economic system.
An American amphibious assault Read more [...]
It would be nice, when Madonna praises Margaret Thatcher as a positive example, if she would follow it.
I have to admit, the fact that Madonna even wanted to praise Margaret Thatcher is impressive to me. But people who make their living by being popular can’t really afford to ever offend their base. And giving props to Margaret Thatcher on Instagram definitely offended her base.
The Queen of Pop found herself under a wave of criticism after she shared a picture of the Read more [...]
Over $400,000 is being spent to “study” the “meaning and function” of first “penetrative same-sex sexual experiences” of Black Youths.
I really am not sure what to say about this news story and the Washington Free Beacon: “Feds Spent $410,265 Studying ‘Satisfaction’ Levels of Young Gay Men’s First Time.”
The four-year study, being conducted by Johns Hopkins University, is examining the “meaning and function” of first “penetrative same-sex sexual experiences.”
“Prior Read more [...]
More people are expressing support for the Second Amendment than those who oppose it.
Back on April 10, I wrote about what I considered the “complete failure” of the propaganda push against guns that started with the Sandy Hook mass shooting. In that case, my evidence was gun ownership. Now that data can be complemented with a Pew survey on attitudes toward guns:
For most of the 1990s and the subsequent decade, a substantial majority of Americans believed it was more important to control Read more [...]
Toni Morrison says she wants “to see a cop shoot a white unarmed teenager.”
Ed Krayewski at Reason.com says that this is “borderline sociopathic.” Drop the first word and then I will agree.
He quotes from Toni Morrison’s interview at the Telegraph:
I want to see a cop shoot a white unarmed teenager in the back," Morrison says finally. "And I want to see a white man convicted for raping a black woman. Then when you ask me, 'Is it [racism] over?', I will say yes."
That anyone could Read more [...]
The Constitution gives the Senate authority to ratify treaties or not, no matter what Climate-Change-believers think.
Arthur Milikh has written a revealing piece at the Daily Signal: “What the Left’s Moments of Condescension Reveal.”
Sometimes the left unwittingly throws gems our way. These come in rare moments of exasperation, rather than the usual poise the left displays. The transformation of America, after all, requires quiet, subtle movements, coordinated with high-minded propaganda. Read more [...]
We have an international event in which Muslims are killing Christians and the President won’t acknowledge it as real persecution.
I’ve written before about both George W. Bush’s and Barack Obama’s lack of action on behalf of the persecuted church.
Now Kirsten Powers nails it in regard to Obama.
From USA Today: “Christians thrown overboard left to drown by Obama.”
What do you call it when 12 men are drowned at sea for praying to Jesus?
Answer: Religious persecution.
Yet, when Read more [...]
