If you feel uncomfortable, declasse and stared-at during your next trip to Las Vegas, blame it on the gambling mecca´s new ads bidding for the nation´s lucrative gay tourism market. Each one of the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority´s new pictorials features a tag line: "Everyone´s WELCOME Even straight people." And, BTW, guess who´s dropping into Sin City tomorrow? The president himself on a quick 4,200-mile day-trip aboard Air Force One. At $182,000 per flight hour that makes for a $1.5 million minimum photo op to plug his immigration reform ideas.
In the rush to embrace "multiculturalism" and "alternative lifestyles" there must be a "culture" to become the enemy, and the reason why all this has been held back, and that is Judeo-Christianity.
Satan is all FOR destroying this country from within through moral decay and degeneracy. He is doing everything he can during the reign of Obama the Malignant before the people rise up to reclaim the American ideal.
Stand and be counted for Christian principles today, before you´re hauled off to the re-education camp tomorrow.
Not well thought-out. The current group of tourists barely tolerate what is already there now (I have spoken to many that say they will never go again). While walking through Vegas while holding my wife´s hand and with my little girl riding on my shoulders, I was constantly approached by idiots trying to hand me cards advertising houses of prostitution. The ground was so covered with these cards that you could not look at your feet to climb stairs without being subjected to filth (which was one of the reasons I had my little girl riding on my shoulders). If Vegas becomes the gay-cation capital, no one from the west will go there. They will also lose all the little old blue-haired ladies that sit at the slot machines for eight hours at a stretch.
First of all, any new immigration ideas are not Obama´s. He never had a worth while idea in his life. All his "radical" ideas come from the 35 mystery czars. They create, they write and he reads whatever is put in front of him. Regarding the gay issue, Ambassador Stevens was a close friend of the president and quite gay. Think what you will.
between the annual schmooze fest called "The NAB Convention" and working at various TV stations there I have to endure "lost wages" a few times a year. As someone who doesn´t gamble or solicit "adult" fare - the few shows I´d like to see are either dark when I have the time or so over priced as to be quite the luxury - there is very little to do in that town and now I don´t even want to think about "what´s New in Vegas"
Hi, I´m Shelley Moore Capito, and I represent West Virginia’s Second Congressional District. Last month, members of both parties came together in the House to pass legislation delaying the individual mandate in the president’s health care law. Because you and your family deserve the same relief the president gave to big businesses by delaying the employer mandate — it’s only fair. Actually, it’s more than fair when you look at how this law is already raising costs, hurting jobs and reducing access to the plans and the doctors you like.
Hi, everybody. Over the past few weeks, I’ve been visiting with Americans across the country to talk about what we need to do to secure a better bargain for the middle class. We need to rebuild an economy that rewards hard work and responsibility; an economy built firmly on the cornerstones of middle-class life. Good jobs. A good education. A home of your own. A secure retirement. And quality, affordable health care that’s there when you need it. Right now, we’re well on our way to fully implementing the Affordable Care Act.
Major powers like the United States have many ways to attempt to influence the actions of other countries -- money, of course, humanitarian and military aid, personal and official contacts, sanctions, the media. None guarantee success. But one thing guarantees failure: Hedging, Waffling, Whatever you want to call a foggy policy. And that is exactly what President Obama and his team have followed regarding Egypt and beyond. And now -- and for perhaps years to come -- the United States is paying the price for his Amateur Hour. It´s yet another facet of the Obama Doctrine of Failure in the
It must be August in these United States. How else to explain all the ridiculous high dudgeon over the rodeo clown at the Missouri State Fair wearing an Obama mask? OMG, someone mocking the arrogant Oval Office guy, as late-night comedians do most weekdays now. (Leno: Obama out on his ´Middle Class Jobs & Opportunity Tour.´ Don’t confuse that with his first term ´Jobs & Missed Opportunities Tour.´) C’mon, America. This is the country that began with a Revolution, thumbing its nose at a monarch for George’s sake. It’s humorous here when someone makes fun of authority figures. Every president
Big headlines last Friday, as President Obama planned, for his news conference announcement. He was naming "a high-level group of outside experts" to probe the nation´s entire intelligence apparatus for abuses to boost transparency and reassure Americans worried about their civil freedoms in a new era of vast government surveillance technology. [Snip] "It’s not enough for me, as President, to have confidence in these programs," Obama said. “The American people need to have confidence in them as well." Turns out, it’s an outside group if by outside you mean people who’ve been outdoors recently.
Leno: President Obama and the Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras met in the White House. Obama and the Prime Minister of Greece talking about the economy. If that isn´t the blind leading the blind. Conan: Major League Baseball has announced that Alex Rodriguez has been suspended for 211 games. So if you’re familiar with the major league baseball schedule, it means he’ll be out for about a month. Conan: For his birthday President Obama played golf with friends. The winners got to ride in the presidential helicopter. The loser had to ride a Jet-ski with Joe Biden.
Hi, I’m Senator Tim Scott from South Carolina. On the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, my Republican colleagues and I are working to unleash the power of America’s energy sector — which will create jobs and keep more of your hard earned money in your own pockets. Unfortunately, President Obama cannot say the same. The President is so out of touch with unemployed Americans that he thinks tens of thousands of Keystone XL construction jobs are a ‘blip.’
Hi, everybody. For the past few weeks, I’ve been visiting folks across America to talk about what we need to do as a country to secure a better bargain for the middle class. I’ve been laying out my ideas for how we can build on the cornerstones of what it means to be middle class in America. A good job. A good education. Affordable health care when you get sick. A secure retirement even if you’re not rich. And the chance to own your own home.
Before taking another week off, President Obama held a news conference, announcing preemptive moves to restore public trust shattered by the recent stream of revelations about broad government surveillance of civil society and its myriad communications. Obama again assured the country there were ample checks to prevent official abuse, but said the sensational manner in which these classified secrets have leaked piece by piece has unnecessarily raised fears and caused many questions. There was no mention of other recent revelations about official abuses by politically-motivated Internal Revenue Service agents.
President Obama is scheduled to hold a rare news conference this summer Friday afternoon. It´s set for 3 p.m. in Washington. Not exactly the best time to make news you want many people to hear. A pretty strong indication that Obama has little intention of making real news and his mind is on his next week-long vacation on Martha´s Vineyard starting tomorrow. Still, the White House press corps will be in its seats ready with questions in case they get called upon. [Snip] Here are our select candidates for questions:
President Obama has been saying we have many important matters and issues to work on with Russia. And as a result, he´s decided not to meet one-on-one with Vladimir Putin at the G-20 summit. This confusing upside-down-ness has become a key component of Obama´s diplomatic style in many places. [Snip] The immediate irritant in Obama’s failed Russia reset policy is Edward Snowden. During Obama´s Africa trip, he dismissed Snowden as a mere "hacker." But now the blabby nerd is reason to cancel a summit. Answering questions from late-night Russian specialist Jay Leno, Obama pronounced himself "disappointed."
How exactly, as President Obama has so often declared, is al Qaeda on the path to defeat if one long-distance message exchange between two senior terrorists can cause the world’s No. 1 superpower to shutter 19 different diplomatic installations across an entire region for at least one week? Eleven months ago the Obama administration, in the form of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, was caught with its pantsuit down by a deadly terrorist attack on the Benghazi consulate on Sept. 11 – Gee, who would ever expect a Mideast terror attack on Americans around 9/11?
The Washington Examiner is reporting that Obama "apparently" did not know about the extent of the violence in Egypt until National Security Adviser Susan Rice informed him of it on August 15. CNN´s Jack Tapper reported that the violence that has filled world news outlets for two days and has resulted in hundreds of deaths is just now reaching the president via the individual who infamously blamed Benghazi on a YouTube video. On August 15 Tapper wrote: This morning, the president had a phone call, a principals meeting with Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel, Secretary of State John Kerry, and
An Illinois Republican congressman told constituents at a town hall meeting on Wednesday that then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton screamed at a fellow member of Congress two days after a U.S. diplomatic station in Benghazi, Libya was destroyed, merely for saying aloud that the attack was carried out by terrorist groups. [Snip] ´Two days after this attack,´ said Rep. Adam Kinzinger, ´we were in a briefing with Hillary Clinton and she screamed at a member of Congress who’d dare suggest that this was a terrorist attack.´ ´Now we find out that while it was happening, they knew it was a
Oprah Winfrey and her co-star in Lee Daniels’ The Butler Forest Whitaker appeared on Anderson Cooper 360 Thursday night to promote their film. During the interview, Anderson Cooper asked Winfrey to relate the historical themes of the movie to the modern day struggles for African-Americans, including the Trayvon Martin case. Winfrey said she “loves” the film in light of the discussion on race, because it “brings context” to the conversation. She described how the film begins with a lynching scene and ends with walking into President Obama’s office, showing how much has “happened in the span of one man’s lifetime
Mideast: Christians in Egypt are again the target of Islamist Muslim Brotherhood supporters using the new violence as a cover for ongoing persecution. If Christians were burning mosques, the world would be outraged.Amid the raging violence in Egypt, a less-publicized war is being waged against Egypt´s long-persecuted Coptic Christians, this time using the excuse that they were somehow involved in the military´s ouster of the Muslim Brotherhood´s Mohammed Morsi from power. Coptic Christians comprise up to 10% of Egypt´s 84 million people.Ishaq Ibrahim from the Egyptian Initiative for Personal Rights
Democratic senator Mary Landrieu says she´s embarrassed to go to places in Europe like France and Spain because some Americans do not have health insurance. Landrieu, who is up for reelection in 2014, represents the state of Louisiana. “People are scared when they’re sick, and they’re much stronger when they’re well,” Landrieu said at a Friday lunch, according to the American Press. “It’s embarrassing to me to go to places like France and Spain ... and their workers all manage to have health insurance that can’t be taken away.” The report adds: Landrieu said Louisiana has “more working people that
An Oklahoma federal judge struck down a state constitutional amendment that forbade its courts from considering Islamic law in judicial decisions. The constitutional amendment — approved by more than 70% of Oklahoma voters in 2010 — was part of a broader national push led by a handful of organizations that claim Islamic Sharia law is creeping into courtrooms. WSJ wrote about the anti-Sharia movement last year. Because the proposed amendment discriminated among religions, Oklahoma needed to show a compelling state interest to justify it, U.S. District Judge Vicki Miles-LaGrange in Oklahoma City wrote in her decision. The decision, made on Thursday, largely mirrors
Sandra Fluke, a former "reproductive justice" advocate at Georgetown Law School, has a new mission: getting more women to run for elective office. In a brief interview on MSNBC Friday morning, Fluke was asked if Republicans are remiss in not asking more women to run for office. "I think there are a variety of concerns about how we get women into office," she responded. "It´s not only about asking women, which is something we need to do -- but also about making sure that the party leadership and those in elected office are looking for women to succeed them." Fluke,
Americans continue to harken to the call of the bodacious, idyllic, post-war, big-finned, fabulous ‘50s. Given a choice of any decade in the century, the public would most want to live in the 1950s, this according to a new YouGov/Economist poll. The 1980s comes in second - with some interesting partisan divides between Republicans and Democrats over the decades. And the numbers: 18 percent of Americans would live in the 1950s if they could go back in time; 20 percent of Republicans and 14 percent of Democrats agree. 15 percent of Americans overall would chose to live in the 1960s;
Ten days after claiming the premeditated lynching of Emmett Till almost 60 years ago was the same thing as George Zimmerman shooting Trayvon Martin in what jurors determined was self-defense, Oprah Winfrey Thursday continued to inject racism into this issue. Appearing on CNN´s Anderson Cooper 360, Winfrey said, "It´s ridiculous to look at that case and not to think that race was involved" (video follows with transcript and commentary): ANDERSON COOPER, HOST: I spoke at length to Forest Whitaker and Oprah Winfrey about the film and about race in America, particularly after the Trayvon Martin case. Here´s part of that interview. (BEGIN
Boston - Gov. Chris Christie told Republican leaders his New Jersey successes were an example of winning GOP support from female and minority voters in a blue state. The party should follow conservative economic themes and the pledge of pragmatic governance, the one-term governor, (Snip) "I´m not going to be one of these people who goes and calls our party stupid," he said, alluding to Jindal, the Republican Governors Association chairman, who told the RNC in January the GOP had to "stop being the party of stupid." "There´s nothing wrong with our principles," Christie said.
A year and a half ago, a news story exploded out of Sanford, Fla. George Zimmerman, an armed, 28-year-old man of mixed white and Hispanic ancestry, followed and killed Trayvon Martin, an unarmed 17-year-old African American. The tragic episode was touched off because Zimmerman, out on neighborhood watch patrol, found Martin to be suspicious as he walked home from a store wearing a sweat shirt with a hood. As the days and months unfolded and more details emerged, the national media ran with the story, and along the way something became quite apparent to me. As captivating as this story was,
President Obama and other top administration officials rubbed shoulders with stars of screen and stage during an exclusive Martha´s Vineyard cocktail party hosted by Comcast CEO Brian Roberts earlier this week, according to a report from the New York Post. In addition to the president and first lady, top Obama fundraiser and Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein was in attendance, as was "Curb Your Enthusiasm" star Larry David and singer Carly Simon. (Snip)Other notables included Marchesa co-founder Georgina Chapman, civil rights activist Vernon Jordan, entertainment executive Peter Chernin, and California Attorney General Kamala Harris.
