Man with BB gun arrested
near Obama´s motorcade

New York Post, by David K. Li

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 4/9/2013 1:56:47 PM

A homeless man, oblivious to President Obama’s passing motorcade, took BB gun practice in the nearby woods and refused to drop his weapon when confronted by Connecticut cops, officials said today. Obama was speaking yesterday at the University of Hartford when police, stationed along the president’s route to Bradley International Airport, heard noises coming from a nearby wooded area around 5:50 p.m., said Bloomfield police Capt. Stephen Hajdasz. A detective from the neighboring town of Simsbury ordered the man — identified as 27-year-old Joseph Stravinskas — to drop what appeared to be a rifle, according to Hajdasz.

You mean Mr. Stravinskas... The other difficult-to-pronounce named guy was the policeman.

He probably was at least a half mile away and didn´t even know that the President was anywhere nearby. But they came swooping down from all corners because some guy is in the woods with a BB gun. Maybe he just likes shooting BBs at trees. Geez!

The White House is ratcheting up the pressure on Congress to restore emergency long-term unemployment benefits when they return to Washington next week. President Obama will be joined by people who have lost those benefits, which expired at the end of last year, when he delivers remarks on the issue at the White House on Tuesday. Labor Secretary Thomas Perez told reporters on Friday that the benefits are a critical lifeline for people still looking for work. He said it would be ”unprecedented,” given the rate of long-term unemployment, for Congress to fail to extend the benefits. Already, 1.3 million

Uncle Sam—AKA the federal government—went on a New Year’s Eve binge, adding a net of $125,202,709,546.99 to its total debt in just the one day of Dec. 31, 2013, according to the U.S. Treasury. That equals approximately $1,088.60 for each of the 115,013,000 households the Census Bureau currently estimates there are in the United States. Overall, in the first quarter of fiscal 2014, which ended on Dec. 31, the total debt of the federal government jumped $613,787,258,252.83. That equals $5,336 for each household in the country.

Mitt Romney was back in the news this week, thanks to a year-end segment on Melissa Harris-Perry’ MSNBC show in which panelists joked about his adopted, African-American grandchild. Now, Romney is scheduled to appear as a guest on Fox News Sunday this weekend and is expected to address the ordeal along with the scheduled topics. While the former presidential candidate is set to talk about the Affordable Care Act and the security at the upcoming Winter Olympics, given the outrage surrounding the MSNBC panel’s comments, Romney is expected to address it in addition.

Something about “Downton Abbey” died with Matthew Crawley last year. Oops — sorry if you didn’t yet know about poor Matthew, but honestly, how long must the rest of us keep quiet about it? Let’s make a deal: This is a review of Season 4, which begins its American broadcast Sunday night on PBS stations. It will be necessary to mention one or two things that happen, but I promise to tread ever-so-lightly and somewhat unspecifically over the details. (Too late, you’re gone. I completely understand.) Anyhow, dead Matthew. And this weird, wonderful show that, when boiled down, is just

Obama Proposes Firearm

The Obama administration on Friday announced a pair of executive actions aimed at strengthening federal background checks for gun purchasers, with a particular focus on limiting firearm access for those with mental health issues. One proposed rule change aims to clarify terminology used by federal law to prohibit people from purchasing a firearm for mental health reasons. The administration said states have complained that some wording is ambiguous, making it difficult to determine who should be blocked from buying a weapon. A second proposed rule change would allow hospitals and other entities covered by patient privacy provisions to submit additional

CHICAGO— The new year brought relief to some Illinois patients newly insured under the nation’s health care law. Others still weren’t sure whether they were covered, despite their best efforts to navigate the often-balky new system. The major benefits of President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul took effect Wednesday, the first day of 2014. By Thursday, the first business day of the new insurance system, it became clear that snags in the rollout of the Affordable Care Act still remained. On the plus side, the law’s protections mean consumers can no longer be denied coverage if they’re in poor health.

The Obama administration on Friday asked the Supreme Court not to exempt Catholic groups from an ObamaCare requirement to offer contraceptive coverage, after the high court gave them a temporary reprieve earlier this week. The court filing comes in response to a surprise order -- issued shortly before coverage under the law went into effect -- by Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor. The justice issued a stay late Tuesday preventing the government from enforcing the so-called contraceptive mandate against the Little Sisters of the Poor Home for the Aged. The group of Catholic nuns argues that the contraceptive coverage requirement

This is becoming an annual tradition of sorts. Every year, there are a raft of "temporary" tax breaks, credits, and deductions that expire on Dec. 31. Lawmakers usually plan on extending them. But they don´t always get to it on time. This year, Congress let about 55 different tax breaks expire on Dec. 31. The full array includes everything from a credit for corporate R&D to tax relief for underwater homeowners. The list also includes a batch of energy tax breaks, like a credit for wind farms that generate electricity or a deduction for commuters who take the bus to

History will record that on the 12th day of his latest Hawaiian vacation, President Obama tweeted about Obamacare. That was one of the president’s few visible acts of official business during his 16-day holiday retreat before he and his family return to Washington on Sunday. The president’s winter recess has rivaled just about anyone’s dream getaway, filled with endless golf, dinners at high-end restaurants, snorkeling at a closed nature preserve and a private, after-hours visit to a spectacular zoo. The president’s aides say he is always on the job, even in the Pacific paradise. Mr. Obama has received daily presidential

Eleven GOP attorneys general say the Obama administration is breaking the law by repeatedly making changes to ObamaCare without going through Congress. The attorneys general specifically criticize President Obama´s executive action that allowed insurance companies to keep offering health plans that had been canceled for not meeting ObamaCare´s more rigorous standards. “We support allowing citizens to keep their health insurance coverage, but the only way to fix this problem-ridden law is to enact changes lawfully: through Congressional action,” the attorneys general wrote in a letter to Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. “The illegal actions by this administration

According to a detailed report, Kim Jong Un fed his Uncle Jang Song Thaek to a pack of hungry dogs, a deviation from the traditional method of execution by firing squad. "Jang was stripped naked and thrown into a cage, along with his five closest aides. Then 120 hounds, starved for three days, were allowed to prey on them until they were completely eaten up. This is called "quan jue", or execution by dogs." The report, appearing in a Chinese controlled newspaper, stated that the "execution" lasted for one hour and was supervised by Kim Jong Un and "300 senior officials."

"We will keep this promise to the American people: If you like your doctor you will be able to keep your doctor. Period. If you like your healthcare plan, you will be able to keep your healthcare plan. Period." (Barack Obama, June 15, 2009, with variants repeated many times since). Today, any American who isn´t willfully blind knows this "promise" is a very big lie. A lie which was deliberately told by fundamentally-dishonest pushers of Obamacare, because if the truth were widely known at that time the Affordable Care Act would never have become law. It´s a lie that is so egregious,

Bitter cold. Below-zero. Blizzard conditions. Sorry, Northeast. But those are phrases you´ll be using a lot Friday amid a monster storm. And not just the Northeast, forecasters said. About one-third of the nation -- approximately 100 million people in 22 states -- is in the path this storm. But the Northeast will be hardest-hit, the National Weather Service said. "Heaviest snow will fall from central New York to the Massachusetts coast. Blizzard conditions are possible for eastern Long Island and the Massachusetts coast.

MSNBC´s Chris Hayes is tired of conservatives snarking about global warming every time it gets cold. During his show Thursday evening, Hayes complained of the "strange bizarre underworld of climate trolls" that came to life when Matt Drudge ironically linked an article on the Drudge Report about cold weather. "Of course, no one ever said that climate change meant it wouldn´t ever be cold," Hayes said defensively, calling the annual tradition "willful stupidity" of conservatives "who delight being on the wrong side of history."

As the planet marked its fourth hottest year on record, a study published in the journal Nature found increasing levels of carbon dioxide will lead to thinner ocean clouds and reduce their cooling impact, causing temperature rises of at least 5.6F (3C) over the course of the century. The team of scientists said the findings show some climate models have been too “optimistic” and previous estimates of a minimum temperature rise of only 2.7F (1.5C) could now be discounted. The optimistic models did not properly assess the impact of water evaporation, which sometimes rises only a short distance into the atmosphere

The consequences of not knowing about this new law or missing the specific 60-day window are dire.

Hospital staff in Northern Virginia are turning away sick people on a frigid Thursday morning because they can´t determine whether their Obamacare insurance plans are in effect. Patients in a close-in DC suburb who think they´ve signed up for new insurance plans are struggling to show their December enrollments are in force, and health care administrators aren´t taking their word for it. In place of quick service and painless billing, these Virginians are now facing the threat of sticker-shock that comes with bills they can´t afford. ´They had no idea if my insurance was active or not!´ a coughing Maria Galvez told MailOnline
