For those late to "Deflate-gate," let me save you some time: Tom Brady or Patriots coach Bill Belichick did it. They either knew or willfully looked the other way as the underlings they instructed let two pound of pressure out of their footballs. This makes it easier to throw and catch footballs and to avoid fumbles.
The NFL and Roger Goodell said they did not know or see anything. It's as if the balls were deflated in an Atlantic City casino elevator.
Patriots owner Robert Kraft pointed to Belichick. Belichick pointed to Brady. Brady pointed to the ball boy. Obama instinctively blamed Bush. more >>
The Pro-Life Acton League has sent over 500 plastic handcuffs inside "care packages" that are being delivered to abortion clinics throughout the U.S. this week and include a picture postcard showing the recent arrest of an Oklahoma abortionist with a handwritten message asking: "Could you be next?"
The packages were sent to the nation's abortionists on the 42nd anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade, which legalized abortion in all 50 states. The postcards containing the handwritten note from Eric Scheidler, executive director of the Pro-Life Action League, encourage abortion clinic employees to leave the billion dollar business that he says is killing millions of babies every year.
Featuring the image of Oklahoma abortionist Naresh Patel who was arrested near Oklahoma City on Dec. 9, 2014, for fraud after he sold abortion-inducing drugs to women who weren't pregnant, the postcard reads: "Could you be next? If you want to get out of the abortion business, give me a call," and includes Scheidler's cell phone number. more >>
In preparation for my upcoming marriage, I have set out researching deeper into Fertility Awareness Methods (FAM) or more commonly called Natural Family Planning (NFP), a birth control method based on the natural observation of signs and symptoms of a woman's ovulation cycle. No chemicals. No treatments. No devices. I'll be honest; NFP is a complex method that takes discipline and commitment. But what NFP does offer is an alternative method to the negative ethical, physical and emotional effects that lurk behind the convenience of the Pill.
I've shared my own thoughts on the need for Evangelicals to stop considering NFP as solely "Catholic" in an op-ed entitled "Why Aren't Evangelicals Talking About Natural Family Planning?" Why Evangelicals haven't collectively considered NFP as a viable alternative chemical contraception, I'll never know. So I was especially surprised to read CNN's report covering NFP's recent rise in popularity among secular women.
In the CNN article entitled, "For Birth Control, What's Old is New Again," author Nadia Kounang notes the "growing movement of young women who are saying no to hormonal birth control and yes to a kind of birth control that sounds at first like a real throwback with a little extra high-tech twist." more >>
Not just Barack Obama, but all politicians promise to protect Medicare—even if they are robbing it to pay for ObamaCare. They don't promise that you can keep your Medicare doctor, however.
And they don't address the question of what happens if you don't like your Medicare.
You can drop Medicare Part B, though there is a penalty for getting back in. But to drop Medicare Part A, you have to give back all the Social Security payments you ever received, as well as forgoing future payments. This was litigated in the case of Hall v. Sebelius, and was revisited in the challenge to ObamaCare brought by the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS), AAPS v. Burwell, which the U.S. Supreme Court recently declined to hear. more >>
Tomczak followed up the next day with an open letter to her, "Ellen DeGeneres:An Open Letter of My Criticism and Her Response to the Influence of Homosexuality in the Media."
Below is Tomczak's video response to DeGeneres and his appeal to use her influence for the benefit of young viewers to look up to her and other entertainers.
Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney will reportedly decide on a 2016 presidential bid in coming weeks and a close ally says the idea of a third run is being driven by his Mormon faith.
Despite having lost the 2008 Republican nomination to Arizona Senator John McCain and the 2012 presidential election to Barack Obama, Romney remains hopeful about his future in politics. Veteran journalist Larry King confirmed over the weekend that the former Mormon pastor is seriously considering another bid at the presidency.
