The Petty Reason Katy Perry Says She Wouldn’t Let Her Parents Come See Her Perform at Obama’s Inauguration
“They understood, but I was like, ‘How dare you?’ in a way.”
This Iraqi top diplomat must be some crazy islamophobe. Lord knows that when I say it or any of my colleagues warn of the danger, we get taken to the proverbial woodshed. We have been warning of this very real and present danger for years. It’s funny, we have been right about everything all along — all of it — and yet we are still blacklisted fro…

Thanksgiving for the National Rifle Association is a good time to give thanks to the end of New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s reign. The Second Amendment group on Tuesday used its Thanksgiving message to slam the co-founder of Mayors Against Illegal Guns and his fun-limiting attacks on fatty foods like those on the Thanksgiving table of many Ame…
Jessica Sanford was thrilled when President Barack Obama held her up as one of the Affordable Care Act’s success stories during a speech in the White House Rose Garden last month.
“Who wouldn’t?” Sanford told CNN. “I’m a nobody really to have him mention my story.”
Senior White House officials were apparently warned at least three years ago that the rollout of Obamacare would be bumpy.
‘Lowest of low’: GOP Rep. Pete King says debt ceiling deal a victory for America, defeat for Ted Cruz
If Rep. Pete King (R-NY) is trying to get a little love from Harry Reid, Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi—the kind that is often reserved for John McCain—the above tweet might do the trick.
However, Rep. King’s comment did not earn him any love from many on Twitter:
Glenn Beck shared the history of the little-known Jay Treaty on his television show Monday, having been told by a listener that it resembles “what is happening right now.”
Beck agreed, and began: “John Jay was the first Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court. President George Washington sent him to negotiate a treaty with the British. It was in the mid 1790′s and there were still several conflicts between America and Britain and again, we were on the verge of war.”
Harry Reid says he doesn’t believe House Speaker John Boehner when he says he doesn’t have the votes to pass a continuing resolution bill to fund the entire government.
Noted Obama fanboy Chuck Todd chimes in, echoing Reid’s sentiment.
Boehner's claim that there aren't votes to pass a clean CR will only be believed if he actually tests the premise.—

California Gov. Jerry Brown will soon decide whether to sign a bill that expands his state’s “assault weapon” ban to cover any centerfire rifle with a detachable magazine. That’s a very broad category, the National Rifle Association notes, since “millions of semi automatic rifles have magazines that can be removed with the push of a button,” including “classic hunting rifles like the Remington Woodsmaster, Browning BAR, and the Ruger 99/44, among many others.” The actual language of the bill, S.B. 374, refers rather confusingly to “a semiautomatic centerfire rifle that does not have a fixed magazine with the capacity to accept no more than 10 rounds.” The NRA argues that the bill’s definition of a fixed magazine — “an ammunition feeding device contained in, or permanently attached to, a firearm in such a manner that the device cannot be removed without disassembly of the firearm action” — is ambiguous, since ” ‘disassembly of the firearm action’ is undefined and nobody (least of all the legislators who voted for it) knows what it means, or for that matter even what a firearm ‘action’ actually is.” But the intended target seems to be any rifle with a detachable magazine that fires rounds of a caliber bigger than .22 (generally the upper limit these days for cheaper, flimsier rimfire cartridges). Hence Fox News says the bill “exempts .22 caliber rim fire rifles,” although the legislation does not directly address caliber.
The most transparent administration in history suffered a defeat Monday, when U.S. District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson turned down the Justice Department’s request to dismiss a lawsuit seeking “Fast and Furious” documents hidden by Attorney General Eric Holder and the Justice Department after President Obama invoked executive privilege.
We have a new feature on the New Wave Feminists Facebook page: every Friday is #FionaFriday. Our fearless leader Destiny adds a new quote to Fiona the Feminist Fetus’s little fetal thought bubble, and so far it has provoked a lot of discussion. And a lot of trolls.
The NWF page is intended as an online meeting place for the like-minded (pro-life feminists), rather than a place where we have to constantly defend our beliefs from a barrage of angry fauxminists. We get enough of that in real life.
According to Democrat Calif. Rep Scott Peters, Ted Cruz’s efforts to rid the country of Obamacare are a waste of time and he needs to find something else to do:
In response, a new hobby was suggested for Rep. Peters:
