President Barack Obama on Sunday said Scouting should be open to gay members. Details to come. The Scouts´ national leadership is mulling scrapping the mandatory exclusion of gay members. Instead, the group could allow different religious and civic groups that sponsor Scout units to decide for themselves how to address the issue — either maintaining the exclusion or opening up their membership. Even though the Irving-based Boy Scouts reaffirmed the no-gays policy just seven months ago, the proposal is expected to be discussed, and possibly voted on, at the meeting of the Scouts´ national executive board,
Just one more field of opportunity opened up to the new gay culture. And in a few years the boy scouts of American will be sued out of existence by abused young men. The BSA doesn´t have nearly as much money as the Catholic Church.
If I were president... If somebody asked me about football or a local arrest or the Boy Scouts or any pop culture phenomenon, I´d just say it´s not a federal matter and any comments I might make could improperly influence things that weren´t my concern.
"When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature´s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security."
For the liberal trolls, this is almost the first two complete paragraphs of the Declaration of Independence.
Every day it´s something else from Obama 2.0, a steady drip, drip, drip like Chinese water torture. I´ve had "mourning sickness" since November 6th ..... things could have been different - our country could have been in good hands. So, so sad.
Amid the deterioration of our society into the cesspool, it saddens me that so many on our side have given up in the war on words. Anyone still using the term "gay" is enabling the subculture of sodomy that has seemingly taken over the MSM both in reportage and actual infiltration. A male who inserts his junk into another male´s trunk is a sodomite-period. The proliferation of this sludge into what´s left of our society can only be stopped when the real MEN still out here take a stand and refuse to call this filth anything other than it´s proper name. I am weary of cowards in sports or other professions who say what they obviously feel one day and issue false apologies the day after. We are allowing a tiny fraction of the population [their outsized presence in the media and Hollywood give a false sense of large numbers] to dictate how we speak and undermine our most beloved institutions. Wake up! There is no "gay".
I´m a big believer in the Bible and I always felt that when people talked about the coming again of Jesus that it was something to come way in the future and what was happening today was bad but was somewhat minor...Not anymore...I´ve gone back to the Book and feel devastated that the ´end is coming´ really IS...I just never thought it would happen in my lifetime but I WAS WRONG...it´s unfolding right before my eyes and I´m trying to decide to accept it peacefully or strike back at all the ´evil´ doers that are helping so hard to bring it about. Look at it, bankrupt the country with all that he learned from his ´Cloward-Piven´ theory professors, corrupting religion with ´freedoms´ that insult, mock and defy Our Lord Jesus. Accept anything as ´OK´ and lie freely and frequently to anyone at anytime...Spit on your allies and support our enemies...Ignore truths and reward cowardice, incompetence and being an out and out traitor... Does any of this look familiar to whats going on??? Brother, our clock is ticking at high speed!
I think Boy Scouts should be open to gay members... nothing wrong with happy scouts. Homosexuals, on the other hand, have no place in a young men´s organization while many are still developing their sense of male sexuality only to be abused by perverted homosexual pedophiles.
Do homosexuals want to serve openly in the military so that it can perform its mission better?
Do homosexuals want to serve openly in the Boy Scouts so that it can perform its mission better?
If that is not the case, if some agenda other than improving and advancing these organizations is the object [evidently the case?], why should these organizations put whatever that agenda may be ahead of their organizations?
Boy Scouts range in age from 11 to 17 years of age, chances are a kid between those ages would have little or no knowledge of the gay lifestyle, if the liberal entertainment industries were not making such a big issue of it to them. If heterosexual people were giving all those kids heterosexual sexual ideas they would be arrested for child sexual abuse.
Liberalism is the culture cancer that destroys everything it touches. Liberals seek out anything decent, traditional and good and inject its heresy and degradation little by little, bit by bit, then moves on to the next victim.
Think pedophilia is forever out of bounds? Think again. Liberals have begun their attempts to indoctrinate the ignorant and gullible. They are using the tried and true method so sucessful with homosexuality; desensitize through entertainment, demonize those not in agreement, gradually bring down age of accountability, attach it to "rights", claim it is inborn DNA and sexual attraction to the young is normal for some, and psychiatrist claiming the children suffer no real harm from sex with adults ( this is already in the "science".).
Little by little, bit by bit. Satan´s political party will sanction it all for more power and control. There is nothing the Democrats will not support given a great enough political constituency.
I don´t believe anyone or any group has denied them the privilege of starting "Gay Scouts of America." Those individuals or families that like the idea can become leaders or become troop members. Then they are free to do their thing. But I just bet lawsuits would soon be plentiful. That´s a risk for any organization, especially where youth are involved. Would they be brave enough. is it important enough to go independent of the Boy Scouts? I think not, as the radical ´pushers´ of moral decline, aimed at traditional American families, operate better as parasites on the healthy host... If they REALLY believe in this lifestyle.. go for it, independently.. willing to learn from the results of their standards, their efforts within their own organization. Put it to a test..
OFF THE COAST OF EASTERN SAMAR, The Philippines -The crew of the USS George Washington cut their shore leave short in Hong Kong to steam towards the Philippines when the extent of the damage wreaked by Typhoon Haiyan became clear. Since the ship arrived at the island last week, the aircraft carrier’s crew of 5,000 – residents of a decent-sized town as tall as a 24-story building – have been supporting relief operations here. The ship is powered by two nuclear reactors, which means that it can steam for 20 years before it needs to refuel. When it’s under way,
Kristin Barkiw of Rossburn, Manitoba, Canada brought two of her children home from Little Cub’s Den daycare when she saw that her kids were sent home with a note. As reported by CTV, the message told the mom she had failed to provide a nutritionally balanced lunch for her children, 5-year-old Logan and 3-year-old Natalie. Not only that, Kristin was fined $10, $5 per child, for missing grains in their lunch of leftover roast beef, carrots, potatoes, an orange and milk. Further, the note said that the daycare staff gave Logan and Natalie Ritz crackers to fulfill the nutritional requirement
Activists said that illegal immigrants were arrested while protesting outside of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s office on Wednesday in the latest escalation of civil disobedience designed to pressure Congress to legalize them. In the morning, hundreds of immigrant-rights activists staged a vigil outside of House Speaker John A. Boehner’s home in Washington, setting up a Thanksgiving dinner table which they said highlighted illegal immigrants who are being deported and won’t be with their families during the holiday this year. After the vigil, activists went to the Capitol complex where 11 of them — some U.S. citizens and some so-called
In an exclusive interview with Breitbart News Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon for the Sirius XM Patriots network, Wisconsin GOP Gov. Scott Walker said he does not support amnesty and the Washington Post’s Aaron Blake, who previously reported Walker supports a “pathway to citizenship” for illegal immigrants took him “out of context.” Towards the end of the interview, Bannon noted that “Amnesty is about the sovereignty of the country.” But, he asked Walker, “the Washington Post said earlier that you’re pro-pathway to citizenship.” “See now that’s where they take it out of context,” Walker said in response. “I’ve not said
Taxpayers will be happy to know they not only fund abortions under the Affordable Care Act, they also help prostitutes stay healthy. Prior to Obamacare, brothel workers at the Moonlight Bunny Ranch in Nevada said they were unable to find coverage under their profession. Prostitute “Caressa Kisses” explained to WOAI NBC News: “They equate us to illegal working girls who have very high STDS and AIDS rates. Which we have none of the above, we’re legal, licensed prostitutes. (Snip) We’re independent contractors, so we have to get our own insurance. So this is truly a blessing. We really hope that
Nearly 50 years after an assassin killed President John F. Kennedy, his daughter was triumphantly received as America’s ambassador to Japan in the country that made her dad a hero. Caroline Kennedy arrived at the Imperial Palace in Tokyo Tuesday in an ornate, horse-drawn carriage — befitting the Princess of Camelot’s role as American royalty — to present her credentials to Emperor Akihito. Meanwhile, back at home, images of her standing stoically at her father’s funeral were being replayed to commemorate the 50th anniversary of his death this week.
According to a new CBS News Poll, President Obama´s approval rating has nosedived into the mid-30s, surely setting off a panic at the White House. President Barack Obama´s job approval rating has plunged to the lowest of his presidency. 37% now approve of the job he is doing as president, down from 46% in October -- a nine point drop in just a month. Mr. Obama´s disapproval rating is 57% -- the highest level for this president in CBS News Polls. [Chart] The failed implementation of Obamacare and the continuing loss of health insurance seems to be doing the most
At least three nearby hospitals had available beds the day before the son of Virginia state Sen. R. Creigh Deeds apparently stabbed his father and then shot himself to death, officials confirmed Wednesday. Deeds’s condition was upgraded to good at a Charlottesville hospital as state mental-health officials continued to search for an explanation of what happened. Austin Deeds, who was 24, had undergone a psychiatric evaluation on Monday, but several officials said he was not admitted to a hospital because no bed was available. It remained unclear Wednesday which hospitals were called and why Austin Deeds was not taken to
Controversy continues to rage about President Obama´s announcement at a Nov. 14 press conference that his administration would not compel insurance companies to cancel policies they had changed since passage of the Affordable Care Act and which did not conform to its numerous, costly, and multi-layered requirements. Much of the controversy concerns the propriety of the president’s declining to enforce a duly enacted law (bearing his signature) whose constitutionality he does not doubt, and whether insurance companies will be able to abruptly change course after three years of preparing to comply with their elaborate and interwoven legal obligations under Obamacare. But
Several dozen suspected terrorist bombmakers, including some believed to have targeted American troops, may have mistakenly been allowed to move to the United States as war refugees, according to FBI agents investigating the remnants of roadside bombs recovered from Iraq and Afghanistan. The discovery in 2009 of two al Qaeda-Iraq terrorists living as refugees in Bowling Green, Kentucky -- who later admitted in court that they´d attacked U.S. soldiers in Iraq -- prompted the bureau to assign hundreds of specialists to an around-the-clock effort aimed at checking its archive of 100,000 improvised explosive devices collected in the war zones, known
Tribune Co. announced a restructuring of its publishing business Wednesday that will redeploy resources to focus on its digital business and operate more efficiently, resulting in nearly 700 job losses across the Chicago Tribune, Los Angeles Times and six other daily newspapers. The plan, which was outlined for Tribune Co. employees in a memo, seeks to integrate business units such as advertising, marketing, manufacturing and digital media under common leadership. It is aimed at offsetting annual publishing revenue declines of $75 million to $100 million, without diminishing editorial content, according to executives. But publishing staff positions, accounting for about 6
One Hawaii state legislator has what he thinks is a smashing idea for dealing with the state’s homeless population. State Rep. Tom Brower, a five-term Democrat representing Waikiki and Ala Moana, is walking around with a sledgehammer in his spare time so he can destroy abandoned shopping carts that may be used by the homeless in an effort to dissuade theft, Hawaii News Now reports. “I got tired of telling people I’m trying to pass laws,” Brower told the outlet. “I want to do something practical that will really clean up the streets.” Brower said he returns shopping carts in
President Barack Obama told the Wall Street CEO Council Tuesday that his administration has "reined in spending" and "cut our deficits by more than half." "After years of trillion-dollar deficits we reined in spending, wound down two wars and began to change a tax code that I believe was too skewed towards the wealthiest among us at the expense of the middle class," said Obama. "And since I took office, we have now cut our deficits by more than half. Add it all and businesses like yours have created 7.8 million new jobs over the past 44 months, we´ve gone farther
Negligence? Absolutely. Incompetence? The case can be made. But scandalous? To suggest that the White House has willfully engaged in the intentional misleading of the public and an outrageous dereliction of its responsibilities to enforce the laws passed by Congress has been a bridge too far. Until recently. New revelations are now forcing even the most reluctant of President Barack Obama’s critics to concede that the Affordable Care Act’s implementation has evolved into a scandal. “I was not informed directly that the website would not be working, as the way it was supposed to,” Obama told reporters on November 14.
Barack Obama is the coolest president we’ve had since John F. Kennedy, at least according to conventional standards for such things. Obama has always been a brand as much as a politician, one that has been perceived as sleek, smart, and up to date. Then along came HealthCare.gov. Its failure to launch is a signal event in the long political battle over Obamacare and perhaps an inflection point in the president’s image. It’s hard to maintain a sense of truly being on the cutting edge of change when you can’t build a website. Obama’s cool was, in part, an artifact of world-class
MICHELLE OBAMA: I thought I wanted to be a pediatrician when I was really little and then I wasn´t that great at math and science so I switched to law because my mother told me that I like to argue a lot. But I realized in high school and in college that you don´t have to exactly know, you´re kind of always discovering yourself. So I studied law, I went to law to school, but was pretty clear I just wanted to be a good student. I wanted to know how to read and write and communicate, be able to
In an interview on BET last night with Bow Wow and Keshia Chante, First Lady Michelle Obama talked up her husband, President Barack Obama. "I always say my husband has got swag," said Mrs. Obama. "He’s got a little swag." The audience applauded. Mrs. Obama also said that the president of the United States "sings all the time." She continued, "Oh, yes, he’s in the bathroom all the time just singing." She also praised her husband. "[H]e has got a good voice." Here´s a transcript of that exchange:
Well folks, it looks like Arizona Senator John McCain will "be one of these old guys that should’ve shoved off.” According to the Arizona Republic, McCain is set to attend a glitzy fundraising for his 2016 campaign in New York City. Sen. John McCain has scheduled a December fundraiser in New York City, the surest sign yet that the veteran Arizona Republican is serious about possibly pursuing a sixth term in 2016. According to a copy of the invitation obtained Tuesday by The Arizona Republic, McCain is asking supporters to join him 6 p.m. Dec. 16 at the midtown St. Regis Hotel
A downbeat President Barack Obama repeatedly asked his worried supporters Monday night to help resurrect his spirits, following weeks of political disasters and personal humiliations caused by the cascading collapse of Obamacare. The distracted president railed against opponents and at one point appeared to forget the number of people in the Obamacare system during the rambling quarter-hour address. “My main message is I’m going to need your help, your energy, your faith, your ability to reach out to neighbors, kids and friends [and] co-workers,” he told listeners to the Internet broadcast arranged by his grass-roots group, Organizing for Action. But his worried
WASHINGTON — Michelle Obama says she won’t wear shorts on Air Force One again because the one time she did, it created “a huge stink.”(snip)Mrs. Obama was asked about her biggest fashion regret. She said she’s always happy with her outfits but that, quote, “sometimes I forget I’m the first lady and I’m running around in shorts.” She recalled her family’s first White House vacation, to the Grand Canyon in August 2009. Mrs. Obama said her wearing shorts getting off the plane “created a huge stink because people were like, ‘she’s wearing shorts getting off of Air Force One.’” She said her thought
On Tuesday, President Barack Obama conceded that he will have to "remarket" and "rebrand" Obamacare as public confidence in him and the healthcare law he championed has plummeted. Speaking at the Wall Street Journal CEO Summit, Obama addressed the failures of the Obamacare rollout and said while he was confident that the healthcare model his administration built, which he claimed worked off of the "existing private insurance system," would succeed, the law would have to be rebranded. “We are going to have to obviously remarket and rebrand,” Obama said. “And that will be challenging in this political environment.” When he
President Barack Obama told a gathering of corporate executives Tuesday he´s confident that his model of health care will work in the end, but he said he´s going to have to "re-brand" it to sell it to a skeptical public. He didn´t use the word "Obamacare" once on Tuesday in talking about his health care law, but he mentioned the "Affordable Care Act" seven times. "So, look, I am confident that the model that we built, which works off of the existing private insurance system, is one that will succeed," Obama told the Wall Street Journal´s CEO Council Annual Meeting
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) says everyone should stop talking so much about the 2016 presidential race, because doing so hurts President Obama, who´s only a year into his second term. "In this sense, I feel badly for President Obama. He just won a year ago, and everybody´s like, ´So, who´s next?´" Christie said Monday night at the Wall Street Journal CEO Council. "There is work to be done in this country. And as we shove him out the door, we minimize his ability to be an effective executive. And we shouldn´t do that." Even as he urged people to focus
The White House has admitted that it was wrong to promise that people would be able to their health care plans under Obamacare. "With respect to the pledge I made that if you like your plan you can keep it, I think -- you know, and I’ve said in interviews -- that there is no doubt that the way I put that forward unequivocally ended up not being accurate. It was not because of my intention not to deliver on that commitment and that promise. We put a grandfather clause into the law but it was insufficient," President Obama said
