SACRAMENTO- California Governor Jerry Brown is undergoing treatment for early-stage prostate cancer with an excellent prognosis for recovery, and the 74-year-old Democrat is expected to keep up a full work schedule, his office said on Wednesday. "Fortunately, this is early-stage localized prostate cancer, which is being treated with a short course of conventional radiotherapy," Dr. Eric Small, Brown´s oncologist, said in a statement. "The prognosis is excellent, and there are not expected to be any significant side effects," he added.

If it were you at 74 then obamacare would deny you treatment. You would die.

remember in order to pass this abomination the democrats promised politicians and union members that they would not be part of it.

radiotherapy will give him scar tissue and he will enjoy that. Thus he will certainly slow down to where he will not want to be in the lime light anymore.

If they caught it early his odds are good. He is definitely up there in years, though, so it might be a very rough road.

I wish cancer on no one. Not even you, Governor Brown. Best of luck with your treatments.

It´s a good thing he just passed that huge tax increase to pay for his treatment. Otherwise he might have had to go to Cuba.

Former President Bill Clinton will hit the campaign trail in Kentucky later this month for Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes, who is challenging Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, a Republican, in one of the marquee races of the 2014 midterm election cycle. Clinton "called and said he wanted to make this race his top priority,” Grimes said in an interview with the Courier-Journal confirming Clinton´s plans. The appearance on the stump, at an event in Louisville on Feb. 25, will be the first for Clinton during the midterm election cycle. He plans to be active supporting other Democratic candidates, including Sen. Mark

The former Russian figure skater that lit the Olympic flame during the Sochi opening ceremony has deleted a racist photo of President and Mrs Obama that she had previously posted. Irina Rodnina is a triple Olympic champion figure skater and is close with Russian President Vladimir Putin so it came as little surprise that she was chosen to be one of the two athletes to have the key role in the opening ceremony. A scouring of her Twitter account by The Guardian found that she had posted a photo of Mr and Mrs Obama looking at someone who was holding

George Soros’ former girlfriend came out swinging at her billionaire ex during a private deposition for her multi-million dollar lawsuit against the octogenarian, newly filed court papers allege. Adriana Ferreyr, a South American soap actress, clocked Soros in the head, knocked the glasses off his California lawyer Martin Singer, cursed his other prominent lawyer William Zabel and even screamed at her own high powered attorney William Beslow, according to papers filed Friday by Singer. “A--h--le!

What Does It Cost To Be
an Obama Ambassador?
ABC News, by Mary Bruce & Jonathan Karl    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 2/7/2014 11:16:14 PM     Post Reply
Upwards of a half a million dollars. That’s what more than half of President Obama’s second-term political appointments raised for his re-election campaign, according to data gathered from the American Foreign Service Association and the Center For Responsive Politics. Rewarding donors and political allies with ambassadorships is nothing new, but Obama vowed to buck the tradition, promising shortly after he was elected to “have civil servants, wherever possible, serve in these posts.” “My expectation is that high quality civil servants are going to be rewarded,” he said in a January 2009 news conference. In fact, Obama has rewarded political supporters

Obama signs farm bill, but unhappy
lawmakers keep their distance

President Obama on Friday signed a five-year farm bill into law, marking the hard-fought legislative accomplishment with eight Democratic members of Congress by his side. Before signing the bill before a crowd of about 500 at Michigan State University, Mr. Obama said the bill “doesn´t include everything I´d like to see,” but is “a good sign” for bipartisan progress in Congress. The number of lawmakers not present for the signing, however, suggests the bill’s success hasn’t built much bipartisan good will. About 50 lawmakers, including many Republicans, were invited to attend the bill signing, White House spokesman Jay Carney told

Just when you thought Obamacare couldn’t get any worse, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) reported on Tuesday that the equivalent of 2.5 million jobs will be lost due to Obamacare. We can’t afford to lose any more jobs. These numbers are calculated according to how many work hours the CBO estimates will be lost in the coming decade. Reuters reports, “In its latest U.S. fiscal outlook, the nonpartisan CBO said the health law would lead some workers, particularly those with lower incomes, to limit their hours to avoid losing federal subsidies that Obamacare provides to help pay for health insurance

Charlie Crist, the former Republican governor of Florida now seeking his old seat as a Democrat, has received the worst type of attention at the start of his campaign: a jilted former fundraiser testifying under oath that judicial nominations were up for sale on Mr. Crist’s watch. The testimony this week by Scott Rothstein, a onetime Crist fundraiser and prominent lawyer convicted of running a $1.4 billion Ponzi scheme, stunned court observers across Florida and rocked Mr. Crist’s nascent candidacy to oust Republican incumbent Gov. Rick Scott. Rothstein did not appear in court for several years after his 2010 guilty

President Obama’s second-term effort to get Americans to hate guns has backfired. Not only did firearm sales in 2013 blow out all records, interest in learning more about Second Amendment issues has risen dramatically. This is evidenced by the news that circulation for the magazine “American Rifleman” has broken into the top 25 magazines in the country, according to the Alliance for Audited Media. The magazine, which is published by the National Rifle Association (NRA), surged 29 percent to 2.2 million readers in the second half of 2013 over the same period the previous year. At the same time, circulation

Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.), Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.) penned some questions to President Obama yesterday on the Benghazi terror attack, saying that his recent interview with Bill O’Reilly raised “more questions than it answers” about the deaths of four Americans at the diplomatic facility. From the senators’ letter: First, in your interview with O’Reilly, you said, “In the aftermath what became clear was that the security was lax, that not all the precautions that needed to be taken were taken.” We agree with your assessment, which is substantiated by the terrorist attack itself as well as multiple

A former State Department arms expert has agreed to plead guilty to disclosing national defense information to a Fox News reporter, his lawyer said in federal court Friday. The agreement calls for him to serve 13 months in prison. Stephen Jin-Woo Kim was accused of sharing information from a classified report on North Korea with Fox chief Washington correspondent James Rosen. Investigators also targeted Rosen, calling him a possible “co-conspirator” to obtain a search warrant for his personal e-mail. The law enforcement tactics used in Kim’s case - and in another case involving the phone records of Associated Press journalists

Harry Reid reigns as lord of the Senate
Washington Examiner (DC), by David M. Drucker    Original Article

Harry Reid effectively owns the U.S. Senate. Democrats and Republicans have long debated how Reid managed to get such a tight grip on the upper chamber. But there is no debating this much: Nothing happens on the floor, or in committee, without the Nevada Democrat´s approval. Most important Senate legislation is written in Reid’s office and sent directly to the floor for a vote on final passage, sidelining committee chairmen who historically have functioned as an influential and quasi-independent force. In the past, a bill would not go to the floor before a series of votes and amendments in whatever

New World Trade Center design

Falling ice from One World Trade Center led to the closure of nearby streets, the PATH station and a memorial pool Friday morning. Port Authority workers closed the main entrance to the World Trade Center station about 8:45 a.m. after ice began plummeting more than 1000 feet off the nearly-completed building, officials said. Service to Newark and Hoboken was suspended. The tower´s distinctive design made matters worse, witnesses said. The building’s sloping corners functioned like a ski jump for falling ice. "The ice just comes down the side and shoots off," said one PATH worker, who declined to give his

Washington - Americans overwhelmingly favor a bill that would give most undocumented immigrants a pathway towards citizenship, according to a new national poll. And a CNN/ORC International survey also indicates that a majority of the public says that the government´s main focus should be legalizing the status of the undocumented rather than border security. The poll was released Thursday, the same day that House Speaker John Boehner signaled any action on immigration is unlikely this year because House Republicans don't trust President Barack Obama on the issue. According to the poll, 54% say the top priority for the

Appearing on MSNBC, former Secretary of State Colin Powell savaged the Republican Party of which he says he is still a member for catering to “elements” that are overtly hostile to people of other races or nationalities. Powell told MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell that there are groups within the GOP who “demonize people who don’t look like the way they’d like them to look.” He added that, for this reason, he believes the GOP needs him more than the Democratic Party needs him. Speaking with Mitchell about the need for immigration reform, Powell said that reforming the system was critical. “We are

A private girls´ school in Northern California wanted to incorporate Black History Month into lunch time, so it decided to serve fried chicken, watermelon, and cornbread. As the Associated Press reports, school officials are apologizing because that was a really, really horrible idea. The school´s principal wrote a letter to parents, who were offended, and said the school doesn´t "perpetrate racial stereotypes." Unfortunately, that´s exactly what they did.

AUSTIN, Texas — The Wild West tradition of openly carrying your six-shooter on the street has long been banned in Texas under state law. But the next governor could change that. Rising Democratic star and gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis has joined her top Republican rival in supporting a proposed "open carry" law. It would allow people with concealed handgun licenses to wear a pistol on their hip, in full view, while in public. Davis has said she supports expanding gun rights in Texas. In a statement to The Associated Press, she said that includes open-carry — a position that puts her at

There´s been a lot of blathering about who the front-runner for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination is, and so far I´ve resisted taking part. But I guess I´m kind of curious: Is there much of a case to be made for anyone other than Paul Ryan? On the substantive side, Ryan sure seems like he´s setting himself up for a run. There´s his steady series of "unheralded" anti-poverty outreach trips that always manage to be just heralded enough to get sympathetic press coverage. He brokered a budget deal with Patty Murray that was businesslike and low-drama but didn´t alienate the tea

In the wake of Philip Seymour Hoffman’s untimely death, Cher’s son Elijah Blue Allman is among the celebs going public about their struggles with substance abuse. Allman, son of Cher and her second husband rock musician Greg Allman, spoke to Entertainment Tonight Tuesday about his former drug use, which began at a young age. "I started with drugs around the same time that we all did, around 11,” Allman said. “I mean it´s just what you did, it´s just what everybody did.” He added that he started off using marijuana and ecstasy, then later began abusing harder drugs like heroin.

This is either a glaring admission of defeat from the White House or… no, that’s really all it could be. After weeks of defending the cancellation of health plans insurers discontinued in 2013 in order to comply with the Affordable Care Act’s coverage mandates, the White House announced in November of last year that it was urging insurers to reinstate those plans. The catch was, of course, that most insurers would be unable to turn on a dime and reinstate those plans. Furthermore, the administration allowed individual states leeway to determine whether or not they would even allow insurers to reinstate

Asked by host Gregg Jarrett to address the president’s declining to label Benghazi an “an act of terror” immediately following the siege, Williams responded that “At this point, it’s a political football… that I think people are keeping alike to hector Hillary Clinton.” Later on, Jarrett asked whether it was “undignified” and “embarrassing” of the president, during his pre-Super Bowl interview with Bill O’Reilly, to “blame the the Fox News Channel for the Benghazi
