Baltimore Ravens Linebacker
Plans to Use Super Bowl
to Promote Same-Sex Marriage

Newsbusters, by Noel Sheppard

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 1/25/2013 11:32:20 AM

Can the Super Bowl be a platform for same-sex marriage? Baltimore Ravens linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo hopes so, and dreams of celebrating a victory in New Orleans two Sundays from now by dancing with Ellen Degeneres. According to New York Times columnist Frank Bruni, Ayanbadejo awoke early Monday morning after his team´s surprise victory over the New England Patriots to write an email message to "Brian Ellner, a leading marriage-equality advocate with whom he had worked before, and Michael Skolnik, the political director for Russell Simmons, a hip-hop mogul who has become involved in many issues, including same-sex marriage."

Obama’s scheme to take over Texas
Washington Times (D.C), by Greg Abbott    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 7/31/2013 5:37:43 AM     Post Reply
The Obama administration’s interference in Texas’ redistricting and voter-ID litigation does not protect voting rights. It protects the Democratic Party. Recall that just a few months ago, high-ranking Obama operatives launched a campaign to “turn Texas blue.” The administration’s foray into Texas voting rights litigation is just another page in that political playbook. In redistricting, the Obama administration has aligned itself with Democratic state representatives and Democratic members of Congress who already are suing Texas. It is no surprise then that the legal position of President Obama’s attorneys seeks to improve Democratic candidates’ prospects.

A general examination to test eighth grade students in Kentucky´s Bullitt County school system in 1912 has stumped some adults and ignited a debate over the intelligence of children today.

Huma Abedin, the Hillary Clinton loyalist and wife of embattled New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner, will reportedly take an "extended vacation" from her job as the chief of staff of Hillary Clinton´s transition team. Politico reports the move is not a formal "leave of absence." “Huma is not taking a leave of absence, but she will be taking vacation time in August to support her family during Anthony’s campaign," a Weiner campaign source told Politico. “She had always intended to do this.” According to Politico, "it was a loose plan she’d had for weeks, since Hillary Clinton

The top state lawmakers in Illinois are suing Gov. Pat Quinn after he halted the salaries of legislators because of their failure to find a solution to the state´s $100 billion pension crisis. House Speaker Michael Madigan and Senate President John Cullerton, both Democrats, filed the 12-page complaint with the Circuit Court of Cook County Tuesday, calling Quinn´s actions "purely political and unconstitutional." "This matter is of fundamental constitutional importance, as Governor Quinn´s action threatens the independence of each branch of government," Cullerton and Madigan said in a joint news release.

After a long three-year gap since their last exclusive sit-down interview with President Obama, you might think The New York Times would be ready to ask tough questions on the most contentious issues of the day, beginning with the deepening Obama scandals. Wrong. Instead, the Times defined the “news” in this interview to be Obama’s counter-attacks. Their stories focused on Obama’s accusations that (a) the Republicans are liars about Obamacare, (b) the Republicans exaggerate the benefits of building the Keystone XL pipeline, and (c) the Republicans oppose his use of executive power because he has the gall

WASHINGTON — Republican Sens. Lindsey Graham and John McCain have been asked by President Barack Obama to travel to Egypt next week to urge the military to move ahead on new elections, the senators said Tuesday. Egypt has been roiled by deadly protests since President Mohammed Morsi was toppled in a military coup on July 3, developments that have threatened the $1.5 billion in annual U.S. military and economic aid to the Arab world´s most populous country. Responding to reporters´ questions Tuesday about an attempt to cut off the aid, Graham offered up word that Obama has sought the help

The Guardian journalist Glenn Greenwald, the reporter who broke the details revealed by National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden regarding that agency’s information gathering and warehousing practices, was scheduled to testify about those programs before members of Congress. On Tuesday, Greenwald revealed that this informal hearing, organized by Reps. Justin Amash (R-MI) and Alan Grayson (D-FL), has been cancelled. Greenwald, who would have testified via satellite from his residence in Brazil, was going to share his knowledge of the NSA’s surveillance programs before an informal gathering of members of Congress.

WASHINGTON- "Ready for Hillary," a Super PAC backed by Democratic heavyweights, has raised $1 million more than three years before the 2016 U.S. presidential election. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has not said she will be running for president, Politico reported. But she is also clearly keeping her options open. Former U.S. Rep. Ellen Tauschner, D-Calif., who has also served in the State Department, is an adviser to the PAC. She said the PAC´s donors are sending a message that Clinton is the one to beat in 2016. "Being a voter is not a passive sport," Tauscher said.

Glendale city officials on Tuesday were resolute in their decision to install a 1,100-pound metal statue at Central Park memorializing Asian women and girls who were held as sex slaves by the Japanese Imperial Army during World War II. Before a standing-room-only crowd of about 300 people, officials hailed the monument to so-called comfort women as a lasting testament to the pain and suffering endured by an estimated 200,000 sex slaves from Korea, China, Indonesia and other occupied countries during the war, the Glendale News-Press reported. “The Glendale City Council took a bold step.

Byrd died at his home in Winchester, according to an obituary in the Winchester Star newspaper, which is now run by his son. Byrd, a conservative Democrat who entered Congress in 1965 to fill the Senate seat his father had held for more than three decades, later won re-election as an independent after breaking with the Democratic Party.

More than 5,000 weapons collected in various buyback programs were melted down into steel rebar Tuesday morning, authorities said. Officials from the Los Angeles County Sheriff´s Department and the Santa Monica, Inglewood and Culver City police departments oversaw the 20th annual "gun melt" at Gerdau Steel Mill in Rancho Cucamonga, the sheriff´s department announced. The mill annually donates its furnace and workers for the event, the department said. The sheriff´s department´s buyback program -- which offers grocery store gift cards in exchange for weapons -- began in Compton in 2005. Now several municipalities offer such events throughout the year.

It may not look particularly attractive, but as just $1 this family home is a complete bargain. However, despite being on the market for the drop-down price since February last year, the Detroit property is astonishingly still for sale. It is one of a number of run-down properties lying in the suburbs of Michigan´s largest city, which earlier this month filed for bankruptcy, crippled by enormous debts. Built in 1915, the property on Saint-Clair Street has been listed for sale since May 2011. After initially being placed on the market for $900,

Circumventing Congress and with no fanfare, President Obama last week issued an executive order enabling him to send an additional $500 million directly to the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank — much of which you can bet will wind up going to the Iranian-backed Hamas terrorist organization.
