Mayor´s ejection from wrestling match puts
spotlight on parental behavior at youth sports

The Morning Call, by Adam Clark and Irene Kraft

Bethlehem Mayor John Callahan´s sometimes brash style may help him persuade voters and city council members, but it also got him kicked out of a high school wrestling tournament over the weekend. Callahan, one of the Lehigh Valley´s most prominent Democrats, was ejected Saturday night from the District 11 wrestling tournament at Liberty High School after shouting at referee Dennis Buchman, a distinguished 22-year veteran of officiating high-stakes wrestling matches.

Comments:
A Democrat behaving badly.

Maybe he was just mad about his bribe money coming in late.

I´m from the area.
I know Callahan, though not personally.
He is your typical abrasive, know-it-all, egotitical Democrat punk
Feel bad for his son, though.

Michigan State 75, Michigan 52:
Spartans roll over Wolverines
Detroit Free Press, by Joe Rexrode    Original Article

EAST LANSING – It was the first of its kind. And for Michigan, the worst in a long time. The classic matchup between top-10 teams never materialized today night at Breslin Center. Instead, No. 8 Michigan State obliterated No. 4 Michigan like the Spartans haven’t done in more than a decade – back when these programs were miles apart. That’s the way it looked again, at least for one night, in a 75-52 Spartans rout. It was the largest margin of victory for MSU since a 71-44 win in 2002, and the lead got as high as 31.

WASHINGTON — Representative Henry A. Waxman of California, a diminutive Democratic giant whose 40 years in the House produced some of the most important legislation of the era, will announce on Thursday that he is retiring at the end of the year. Mr. Waxman, 74, joins the growing list of House members who are calling it quits, many in disappointment over the partisanship and ineffectiveness of a Congress that may end up as the least productive in history. “It’s been frustrating because of the extremism of Tea Party Republicans,” Mr. Waxman said

Someone you probably are not familiar with has filed a suit you probably have not heard about concerning a four-word phrase you should know about. The suit could blow to smithereens something everyone has heard altogether too much about, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (hereafter, ACA). Scott Pruitt and some kindred spirits might accelerate the ACA’s collapse by blocking another of the Obama administration’s lawless uses of the Internal Revenue Service. Pruitt was elected Oklahoma’s attorney general by promising to defend states’ prerogatives against federal encroachment, and today he and some properly

Attorney General Eric Holder couldn´t explain the constitutional basis for executive orders such as President Obama´s delay of the employer mandate because he hasn´t read the legal analysis -- or at least, hasn´t seen it in a long time. "I´ll be honest with you, I have not seen -- I don´t remember looking at or having seen the analysis in some time, so I´m not sure where along the spectrum that would come," Holder replied when Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, asked him to explain the nature of Obama´s constitutional power to delay the mandate. Lee had based his question on

Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus said Wednesday that there’s a “general consensus” in his party that something big needs to happen on overhauling the country’s immigration laws and that more specifics would be unveiled this week at House Republicans’ annual retreat. “I think politically speaking it’s a mixed bag, but the question is whether or not it’s something we have to do as a country, and I think that’s what’s trumping the political answer,” Mr. Priebus said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “You see in our party, whether it’s [Kentucky Senator] Rand Paul, who’s called for massive immigration reform, or [Florida

On Wednesday night, the official MSNBC Twitter account posted a tweet celebrating General Mills’ decision to air a biracial commercial touting Cheerios during this Sunday’s Super Bowl. However, that tweet came at the expense of suggesting “the rightwing” was racist. Maybe the rightwing will hate it, but everyone else will go awww: the adorable new#Cheerios ad w/ biracial family. http://on.msnbc.com/1dPgQEU The commercial titled “Gracie” is part two of last year’s popular “Just Checking” commercial for Cheerios, with the father this time using Cheerios to explain to “Gracie” she will soon have a younger sibling.

Obama´s "77 Cents on the Dollar" Debunked

Obama won’t give it up. If you also suffered through the State of the Union address, you heard him praise Obamacare, claim he would slash bureaucracy, and of course, fight for income equality. Obama pandered to the ladies, his tone becoming more passionate with every overly emotional word: Today, women make up about half our workforce. But they still make 77 cents for every dollar a man earns. That is wrong, and in 2014, it’s an embarrassment. A woman deserves equal pay for equal work. You have probably heard that statistic—77 cents on the dollar. Speech after speech from the left side of town

The snow and sleet have stopped falling and traffic is slowly moving again but a storm is now brewing over who exactly is at fault for the South´s winter weather fiasco. Weatherman Al Roker and the National Weather Service hit back at politicians in the South who have pointed the finger at inaccurate forecasts as the reason why authorities were so ill-prepared for snowfall and icy conditions which led to chaos on the roads. Georgia Governor Nathan Deal said on Tuesday that the storm was ´unexpected´ and ´we can´t control Mother Nature´. However NBC´s Al Roker completely rebuffed this claim on

It started out like dozens of other interviews after Tuesday night’s State of the Union address. But when NY1 reporter Mike Scotto decided to press Rep. Michael Grimm on his personal campaign finances, the Republican congressman abruptly ended the interview. “This is only about the president’s speech, thank you,” Grimm says before walking off camera. It’s certainly not the first time a politician has walked out during a live interview. But what happened next is shocking even to the most jaded observer. After Stotto returns to his report, Rep. Grimm, a former FBI agent and Marine, suddenly storms back into

Sandra Fluke, who became an instant celebrity when she was denied the opportunity to testify at an all-male hearing on Obamacare’s contraception requirements, is “strongly considering” a bid for Rep. Henry Waxman’s congressional seat, according to KPCC, a Southern California radio station. “I’m flattered that I’m being discussed as a potential candidate,” she told the station. “A number of folks I respect very deeply have reached out today and encouraged me to run. I am strongly considering running.”
