If you didn't think things could get worse under the Obama Administration, think again.
It appears we now have a Pimp-in-Chief, promoting through the Department of Health and Human Service's Office on Women's Health, a website, www.girlshealth.gov, which defines anal sex, mutual masturbation, gay sex, birth control, and emergency contraceptives to girls aged 10-16-as normal and healthy.
By clicking on the "Body" tab on the home page, and then clicking through a few more pages, girls learn that it's natural to be gay. more >>
Within a month after winning a second term, President Obama wasted no time in suspending the provisions of the Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995, requiring the U.S. to recognize Jerusalem as the permanent capital of Israel. The law also required the American Embassy to be relocated.
In suspending the provisions of the act, President Obama was violating his own campaign commitments to Americans and to Israelis. As a candidate in 2008, he had said he was committed to recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's permanent capital and keeping it united under Israeli rule.
Secretary of State John Kerry is now heading back to the Mideast in yet another effort to get direct talks going with Israel's Arab peace partners. The only problem this time is the problem from last time - and all the times before that. There's no peace. And there are no partners. more >>
Scandal-Palooza is not going away and the mainstream media has proved that it will pay some attention to it (we love you, Sheryl Attkisson and we stand with you, James Rosen). But realizing that their ideological standard-bearers are in serious trouble (along with their future election victories), progressives are going out of their way to defend the indefensible. There is no depth to which the progressive won't sink in pushing their beliefs and attacking non-believers.
The rational person looks at the IRS scandal with disgust. The idea that an administration would use a government agency to attack Americans is repugnant. Heck, it's un-American! It's the stuff of banana republics -- or perhaps a Matt Damon film. But that is no deterrent for the progressive.
In Colorado, people signed a giant card to thank the IRS for targeting Tea Party groups. One could assume that it was those dreaded "low information voters" who didn't know any better. But that's not it. Low information voters think Benghazi is a salve for sore muscles. Signing a thank you card to the IRS for harassing Americans is proof of progressivism's mental decay. more >>
As the wife of imprisoned Pastor Saeed Abedini prepares to speak at the U.N. Human Rights Council later on Tuesday, the White House released a statement strongly urging Iran to release him from his 8-year sentence.
"We remain deeply concerned about U.S. citizen Saeed Abedini who has been sentenced to 8 years in prison in Iran on charges related to his religious beliefs. We can confirm that Mrs. Abedini and her lawyer met with U.S. Ambassador to the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva Eileen Donahoe. We have reached out to numerous international partners to raise awareness of Mr. Abedini's case and to press Iranian officials to provide him medical attention and to release him," the White House said Friday.
The White House said it is sending requests for consular access and is pressing for Abedini's release, but Iran is refusing all communication because it does not recognize the pastor's U.S. citizenship. more >>
Across the nation, Americans are starting to see what ObamaCare really means - and it's not pretty.
Californians who buy insurance on the new "Covered California" exchange better not expect care at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, the prestigous LA academic hospital: Their plans won't cover such top-drawer care. Indeed, many in the Golden State will have to give up doctors and hospitals they now use, if they want subsidized coverage.
That's one of many truths omitted amid the fanfare last week as Covered California unveiled the plans it will offer starting Oct. 1. The unveiling of what will be the country's largest exchange naturally attracted nationwide interest, with ObamaCare boosters declaring victory. more >>
President Barack Obama vowed on Monday at a conference at the White House to "get rid of the embarrassment and stigma" of mental health problems and help people who need help, tackling a serious problem in the country.
"We want to let people living with mental health challenges know that they are not alone, and we've got to be making sure that we're committed to support those fellow Americans, because struggling with a mental illness or caring for someone who does can be isolating," the president said.
"And I think everybody here who's experienced the issue in one way or another understands that. It begins to feel as if not only are you alone, but that you shouldn't burden others with the challenge and the darkness, day in, day out – what some call a cloud that you just can't seem to escape – begins to close in." more >>
