Now they are charging Chaplains with sedition for preaching religion!
February 14, 2012 One of the main news topics this past week involved President Obama's mandate that Catholic and other religious institutions were required to provide free medical coverage for birth control. Then the president seemed to offer an olive branch, but upon closer examination the branch turned out to be deadly hemlock and not olive. He said that the insurance companies would have to provide the free birth control to the employees of religious institutions, which is virtually the same disregard for strong religious beliefs and to many Americans an outright violation of the First Amendment.

To whom did the Obama administration grant permission to fly the Palestinian Liberation Organization [PLO] flag in Washington D.C.?
The answer: Palestinian Arabs - A society whose overwhelming majority nurtures a blind hatred of Israel, and has created a cultural milieu of vengeance, violence and death. This organization, which has been directly responsible for the murders of American civilian and security personnel, now has its recognition and flag waving in our capitol.
Here is just a subset of articles from the PLO Charter that the American administration has no shame to honor:
And if their charter was not convincing enough, the United States Congress, on numerous occasions, has reaffirmed the PLO's status as a terrorist organization. Although past presidents have attempted to circumvent this law, its conclusions are concise and unequivocal:
"Therefore, the Congress determines that the PLO and its affiliates are a terrorist organization and a threat to the interests of the United States, its allies, and to international law and should not benefit from operating in the United States."
The violent and disturbing history of the PLO is one that has dreadfully affected the lives of countless Israelis, Americans, and many others. The PLO is so transparent in its criminal and malicious ways, whether it be via their charter, public statements, or incitement, that one must question what the State Department was thinking when it upgraded the status of their mission from representative office to general delegation.
Remember, other arab countries will NOT accept refugees from 'Philistine', but we do. Refugees from wars between the Jews and arabs destroyed the country of Lebanon. Once a peaceful country 50% Christian is now a radical islamic haven. Get it?? Country destroyed because of an influx of Palestinians. Pals are coming here. Tick tock tick tock. You might include a question about that next time you right a senator or rep. and that should be at least once a week.
The Weiner Waiver Wormhole
New York Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner toasted the one-year anniversary of Obamacare this week -- and accidentally spilled his champagne glass all over the disastrous, one-size-fits-all mandate. Ostensibly one of the federal health care law's staunchest defenders, Weiner exposed its ultimate folly by pushing for a special cost-saving regulatory exemption for New York City.
If it's good for the city Weiner wants to be mayor of, why not for each and every individual American and American business that wants to be free of Obamacare's shackles?
Weiner joins a bevy of the "Patient Protection and
Affordable Care Act's" loudest cheerleaders -- unions,
foundations and left-leaning corporations -- in clamoring
for more waivers for favors. (The list of federal waiver
recipients now tops 1,000, covering more than 2.6 million
workers.) And he follows a gaggle of health care
takeover-promoting Democrats maneuvering on Capitol Hill
for get-out-of-Obamacare loopholes.

you can't change Washington from the inside." That's demoralizing to hear when a recession is bearing down on the economy-and it's an inside job.
The Congressional Budget Office has forecasted a fresh recession to hit next year if Taxmageddon, a nearly $500 billion tax increase, hits the nation and Congress and the President drive us off the "fiscal cliff." President Obama has done nothing but ignore this warning.
In a new report, Heritage's J.D. Foster explains that the very fact that we can see a recession coming is shocking. "Economic forecasters almost never forecast recessions," he says. "Those few who do forecast recessions do so with great frequency and belong to the doom-and-gloom school of economics." Yet we can see this one a mile away:
What makes this recession different, and predictable, is that the disruptive force is Washington policies and, even more, Washington behaviors-policies and behaviors for which the nation can thank the Congress and especially President Obama. The policy is Taxmageddon. The behavior is intentional, insistent inaction. The consequence is recession. The response should and will be outrage.
The problem is extremely clear. Congress has left town and isn't scheduled to return until after the November election. With every day that passes, the economy drags, as the uncertainty of January 1 looms.
Economists talk a lot about "uncertainty." Why is uncertainty such a big deal?
Business owners are looking at next year's taxes already and thinking they can't afford to hire. Investors are holding back from expansions and new ventures. This massive uncertainty is holding back all growth and keeping unemployment stubbornly above 8 percent, while millions have dropped out of the labor force because they are so discouraged.
Uncertainty affects your personal finances, too. Think about this: If you're a middle-class American family, Taxmageddon means that your taxes are going up about $4,100 next year. How does that affect your thinking about traveling for Thanksgiving in a couple of months? Buying Christmas presents? What about saving for retirement or your children's education?
It starts to hit home that you have to come up with that $4,100 somehow. You're going to have to make cuts in your lifestyle to be able to pay this tax increase.
The best the economy has to offer right now is a holding pattern. Holding onto our money and holding our breath, waiting for the gigantic shoe of Taxmageddon to drop on top of us.
The President said outside forces were needed to change Washington. But this tax increase-and the recession it will bring-are an inside job. Congress and the President are the only ones who can prevent it.
The House passed a bill that would prevent the largest share of Taxmageddon, but when Congress came back to Washington for the blink of an eye after its August recess, it failed to finish the job. Everyone promptly dashed back to the campaign trail.
As Foster said, "President Obama should demand that Congress return to defuse Taxmageddon, and Congress should immediately heed his call. The job need only take a few days away from their campaigning."

How Is the Obama Administration Gutting Welfare Reform?
The controversy over the Obama Administration's gutting of welfare reform continues to grow. Two new government reports show the move's illegality and effects on taxpayers. And Congress has an opportunity to approve or disapprove Health and Human Services' (HHS) rewriting of the 1996 law.

anyone out there awake?
from Audacity of Hope:
Yesterday, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) issued a new report saying that in the years since the Clinton-era reform added work requirements to the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) program, five states inquired about waivers of TANF requirements. The report confirms that since welfare reform was enacted, HHS has never before suggested that it had any authority to waive the work requirements. Waiver requests were turned down, in fact.
In specific instances in 2005 and 2007, the response from HHS was clear:
HHS stated that all applicable programmatic requirements apply to a family that is provided TANF-funded cash assistance, and the Department does not have authority to waive any of the provisions.
In the debate thus far, one question has largely gone unanswered: Just how strict are these now-controversial work requirements?
In a new report, Heritage expert Robert Rector explains that
the work requirements were quite lenient, requiring only 30 percent to 40 percent of a state's caseload to participate in work or a work-related activity and requiring individuals to work as few as 20 hours per week to fulfill the requirement.Yet half of TANF recipients receive a welfare check without performing any activity at all.
In a snapshot of the TANF recipients in March 2011, only about 14 percent of the recipients were actually meeting the work requirements. The other 86 percent were receiving their welfare benefits just the same.
As Rector says,
It is difficult to understand why anyone would want to weaken these already overly lenient work standards.Yet he details the left's vigorous opposition to work requirements in welfare dating back to the Nixon Administration.
The Obama Administration's rewriting of the law will cost taxpayers, too. A new estimate by the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) says that the Obama Administration's move will actually increase the deficit by $60 million over the next 10 years. Why? Because states have been paying penalties if they aren't meeting the work requirements - and under the Administration's rewriting of the law, those penalties are gone. So is the revenue to the federal government.
But the Administration's gutting of welfare reform not only costs taxpayers; it also harms those welfare reform was designed to help. By jettisoning the law's goal of reducing dependency, the new policy will increase welfare caseloads and leave more people stuck in poverty.
Workfare separates those who truly need help from those who do not. Faced with a simple requirement to prepare or search for work, many people simply choose not to enter the welfare rolls in the first place. This is generally good for the prospective recipient and the taxpayer. As Rector explains:
Time spent on welfare never looks good on a job resume. Welfare dependence erodes work habits and job skills and reduces contacts with other employed persons that can lead to future job opportunities. Unnecessary enrollment in welfare therefore undermines an individual's long-term earnings potential and increases the prospects for future poverty.
Those already on welfare, faced with a requirement to search or prepare for work, leave welfare much more quickly. Having a work requirement tied to welfare benefits is good for recipients and good for taxpayers. As Rector's new report shows, stronger, not weaker, work requirements are needed.
But the Obama Administration is moving in the opposition direction. Under the new welfare performance measures devised by the Administration, the old pre-reform welfare program with rapidly rising caseloads would be judged a rousing success, while welfare reform itself - with rapid declines in the caseload - would be judged a failure. As Rector states, "The Obama Administration is not just gutting welfare reform; it is turning it on its head."
Falsehoods continue to circulate on this topic, but the facts are starting to break through. After speaking with Heritage's Rector, The Washington Post's
fact checkcolumnist took a second look at former President Bill Clinton's recent speech and gave him two
