New Jersey Family Denies They Stiffed Gay Waitress, Left No Anti-Gay Note

-By Warner Todd Huston

Early in November a gay waitress in a New Jersey restaurant claimed that some diners left her a nasty, anti-gay note and no tip upon paying their bill. The story went viral, but a new report casts heavy doubt on the story the waitress told.

Dayna Morales, a server at Gallop Asian Bistro in Bridgewater, N.J., claimed that on November 13 some customers left a note on their dinner receipt informing her that her “lifestyle” offended them and because of that they wouldn’t be leaving a tip.

Morales, a former U.S. Marine, quickly posted a copy of the receipt with the hand written note on it to her Facebook page.

After that the story went viral and it wasn’t long before the waitress received thousands in donations as her plight became a cause célèbre for the gay community.

NJ GOP Governor Christie: Obamacare ‘A Train Wreck ANybody Could’ve Seen Coming’

-By Warner Todd Huston

New Jersey’s Republican Governor Chris Christie slammed Obamacare as a “train wreck” in comments made at a Jersey radio station on November 25.

Christie appeared on New Jersey’s 101.5 FM for his November “Ask the Governor” segment. That’s when he slammed Obamacare and the President but good.

Christie was asked why he didn’t join in on the state side and create a state exchange for Obamacare in New Jersey.

“This is just an awful law that made no sense and that’s why I didn’t get into a state exchange. And no, I have absolutely no regrets. In fact, I’m really glad that the train wreck’s not mine, it’s his,” the Governor said of Obama’s signature healthcare law.

Four More Years: Pat Quinn Wins 2014 Illinois Governor Race

The Illinois Democratic Machine would like to congratulate Governor Pat Quinn on his 2014 re-election!

And a special thanks goes to Illinois Republicans for making it possible! Their support of our pension plan helped the Governor seem like a reformer instead of just kicking the can.

You know, it’s a funny story… Democrats control Illinois, so we were getting hammered for not fixing the pension crisis.

To avoid getting blamed, we hatched a plan: repackage old ideas, call them “reform”, and the Republicans do the rest. They took the bait and let us off the hook. (No joke, it was really that easy.)

So here’s a toast to Illinois Republicans–for passing a a pension bill that does nothing but give us another four years.

Obama Disrepecting The Vatican, Catholics, Jews, Everyone But Muslims

First Obama pushes a deal with Iran that does nothing to prevent that Muslim nation from getting the bomb putting Israel in mortal danger, before that he sided with al Qaeda and other Muslim groups in Syria despite that they are murdering Christians just for being Christians, and now Obama disses Catholics by moving the US embassy to the Vatican out of the Vatican and miles away next to the Italian embassy in Rome.

In only a few day’s time, Obama has turned his back on Jews and Catholics both while giving Muslims all the help they need to become an even greater danger to the whole world. Who’s side is this guy on, anyway?

Obama has offended the Vatican and Catholics everywhere with his unilateral decision to move the embassy out of the Holy See, claiming he did so because of “security” reasons.

Security is a pretty weak reason, of course. The embassy to the Vatican is no more safe in Rome than it is in the Vatican itself.

Police State: Louisiana Cops Have Power to Force Drivers to Give Blood Samples?

-By Warner Todd Huston

If you live in Louisiana, be aware that police seem to have a fairly new power. If they suspect you to be driving drunk they can demand your blood for an alcohol test and if you don’t want to give it they have the power to throw you in jail until they get a court order demanding you give them blood.

This new power is called the “no refusal” policy. A fitting name, indeed.

In the past a driver had the right to refuse to give police any urine or blood and could refuse a breath test. But now, as Fox 8 notes, “things are different.”

“No refusal means that if you refuse a chemical test once you are arrested for a DWI, that trooper can get a search warrant,” State Police Trooper Melissa Matey said. “That search warrant is for your blood.”

Giving Thanks for Being Sick This Thanksgiving

-By Warner Todd Huston

Early this morning I woke up retching. Now there is a great way to start a Thanksgiving Day post, isn’t it? But even though the mere smell of my wife’s wonderful Thanksgiving dinner cooking in the kitchen is making me nauseous it still makes me realize just how thankful I am this Thanksgiving Day.

As I sit nearly doubled over from stomach muscle pain because of a night of vomiting–I swear I won’t mention details again–it occurs to me that there are millions of people that are dealing with overwhelming pain every day. And I am not.

There are people trying to push their way through cancer or other terminal illnesses, people just happy for a few minutes free of the nagging pain, just a few minutes to enjoy their loved ones on this what may be the last holiday for so many. And I am not.

Being sick reminds me that despite my temporary condition I will be all back to normal in a day or so and will be past this spate of illness. Too many will not so easily get past their condition.

A Thanksgiving Proclamation in George Washington’s Own Words

By the President of the United States of America, a Proclamation

Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor — and whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee requested me to recommend to the People of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness.

Now therefore I do recommend and assign Thursday the 26th day of November next to be devoted by the People of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being, who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be — That we may then all unite in rendering unto him our sincere and humble thanks — for his kind care and protection of the People of this Country previous to their becoming a Nation — for the signal and manifold mercies, and the favorable interpositions of his Providence which we experienced in the course and conclusion of the late war — for the great degree of tranquility, union, and plenty, which we have since enjoyed — for the peaceable and rational manner, in which we have been enabled to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national One now lately instituted — for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed; and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge; and in general for all the great and various favors which he hath been pleased to confer upon us.

[sic] and also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech him to pardon our national and other transgressions — to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually — to render our national government a blessing to all the people, by constantly being a Government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed — to protect and guide all Sovereigns and Nations (especially such as have shewn kindness unto us) and to bless them with good government, peace, and concord — To promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the encrease of science among them and us — and generally to grant unto all Mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as he alone knows to be best.

Given under my hand at the City of New York the third day of October in the year of our Lord 1789.

Go: Washington

Abraham Lincoln’s Thanksgiving Proclamation

Abraham Lincoln’s Thanksgiving Proclamation

President Abraham Lincoln’s 1863 Thanksgiving Proclamation:

The year that is drawing toward its close has been filled with the blessings of fruitful fields and healthful skies. To these bounties, which are so constantly enjoyed that we are prone to forget the source from which they come, others have been added which are of so extraordinary a nature that they can not fail to penetrate and soften even the heart which is habitually insensible to the ever-watchful providence of Almighty God.

In the midst of a civil war of unequaled magnitude and severity, which has sometimes seemed to foreign states to invite and to provoke their aggression, peace has been preserved with all nations, order has been maintained, the laws have been respected and obeyed, and harmony has prevailed everywhere, except in the theater of military conflict, while that theater has been greatly contracted by the advancing armies and navies of the Union.

Needful diversions of wealth and of strength from the fields of peaceful industry to the national defense have not arrested the plow, the shuttle, or the ship; the ax has enlarged the borders of our settlements, and the mines, as well as the iron and coal as of our precious metals, have yielded even more abundantly than heretofore. Population has steadily increased notwithstanding the waste that has been made in the camp, the siege, and the battlefield, and the country, rejoicing in the consciousness of augmented strength and vigor, is permitted to expect continuance of years with large increase of freedom.

The Mayflower Compact, 1620: An American Founding Document

November 28, 2013 | Filed Under Holiday, Thanksgiving, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off on


The Mayflower Compact, 1620: An American Founding Document

One of America’s earliest, religious documents, the Mayflower Compact was the first governing document of Plymouth Colony. It was written by the Separatists, also known as the “Saints”, fleeing from religious persecution by King James of Great Britain. They traveled aboard the Mayflower in 1620 along with adventurers, tradesmen, and servants, most of whom were referred to as “Strangers.”

The Mayflower Compact was signed aboard ship on November 11, 1620 by most adult men (but not by most crew and adult male servants). The Pilgrims used the Julian Calendar, also known as Old Style dates, which, at that time, was ten days behind the Gregorian Calendar. Signing the covenant were 41 of the ship’s 101 passengers, while the Mayflower was anchored in what is now Provincetown Harbor within the hook at the northern tip of Cape Cod.

It is interesting to note that even as they were fleeing religious persecution, they still felt they were Englishmen and wrote their compact as Englishmen.

Here is the text of the compact as seen in William Bradford’s History Of Plymouth Plantation as written in William Bradford’s History Of Plymouth Plantation:

(Spelling and punctuation modernized)

In the name of God Amen· We whose names are underwritten, the loyal subjects of our dread sovereign Lord King James by the grace of God, of great Britain, France, & Ireland king, defender of the faith, &c

Having undertaken, for the glory of God, and advancement of the Christian faith & honor of our king and country, a voyage to plant the first colony in the Northern parts of Virginia· do by these presents solemnly & mutually in the presence of God, and one of another, covenant, & combine our souls together into a civill body politic; for the our better ordering, & preservation & furtherance of the ends aforesaid; and by virtue hereof, to enact, constitute, and frame such just & equal laws, ordinances, Acts, constitutions, & offices, from time to time, as shall be thought most mete & convenient for the general good of the colony into which we promise all due submission and obedience. In witness whereof we have here under subscribed our names at Cape Cod the ·11· of November, in the year of the reign of our sovereign Lord King James of England, France, & Ireland the eighteenth and of Scotland the fifty fourth. Ano: Dom 1620

History behind the Mayflower Compact

(As compiled HERE)

The Mayflower Compact was signed on 11 November 1620 on board the Mayflower, which was at anchor in Provincetown Harbor. The document was drawn up in response to “mutinous speeches” that had come about because the Pilgrims had intended to settle in Northern Virginia, but the decision was made after arrival to instead settle in New England. Since there was no government in place, some felt they had no legal obligation to remain within the colony and supply their labor. The Mayflower Compact attempted to temporarily establish that government until a more official one could be drawn up in England that would give them the right to self-govern themselves in New England.

In a way, this was the first American Constitution, though the Compact in practical terms had little influence on subsequent American documents. John Quincy Adams, a descendant of Mayflower passenger John Alden, does call the Mayflower Compact the foundation of the U.S. Constitution in a speech given in 1802, but this was in principle more than in substance. In reality, the Mayflower Compact was superseded in authority by the 1621 Peirce Patent, which not only gave the Pilgrims the right to self-government at Plymouth, but had the significant advantage of being authorized by the King of England.

The Mayflower Compact was first published in 1622. William Bradford wrote a copy of the Mayflower Compact down in his History Of Plymouth Plantation which he wrote from 1630-1654, and that is the version given above. Neither version gave the names of the signers. Nathaniel Morton in his New England’s Memorial, published in 1669, was the first to record and publish the names of the signers, and Thomas Prince in his Chronological History of New England in the form of Annals (1736) recorded the signers names as well, as did Thomas Hutchinson in 1767. It is unknown whether the later two authors had access to the original document, or whether they were simply copying Nathaniel Morton’s list of signers.

The original Mayflower Compact has never been found, and is assumed destroyed. Thomas Prince may have had access to the original in 1736, and possibly Thomas Hutchinson did in 1767. If it indeed survived, it was likely a victim of Revolutionary War looting, along with other such Pilgrim valuables as Bradford’s now lost Register of Births and Deaths, his partially recovered Letterbook, and his entirely recovered History Of Plymouth Plantation.

The term “Mayflower Compact” was not assigned to this document until 1793, when for the first time it is called the Compact in Alden Bradford’s A Topographical Description of Duxborough, in the County of Plymouth. Previously it had been called “an association and agreement” (William Bradford), “combination” (Plymouth Colony Records), “solemn contract” (Thomas Prince, 1738), and “the covenant” (Rev. Charles Turner, 1774).


Supreme Court Will Hear Obamacare Forced Contraception/Anti-Religious Liberty Case

Supreme Court Will Hear Obamacare Forced Contraception/Anti-Religious Liberty Case

-By Warner Todd Huston

In a momentous decision, the U.S. Supreme Court has decided to review the Constitutionality of provisions in Obamacare that force religious institutions and companies owned by religious owners to fund contraception in their employee healthcare policies.


The Justices of the Supreme Court of the United States.

One of the cases against Obamacare was brought by the arts and crafts supply company Hobby lobby which is owned by the religious Green family. Their religious principals, the Greens say, forbid them from engaging in abortion or contraception but Obamacare forces them to pay for such things in their employee healthcare plans whether they want to or not.

This mandated coverage, the argument goes, is unconstitutional because it forces religious business owners and religions institutions to pay for things that go against their religious principals.

To explain his decision Hobby Lobby’s CEO wrote,

D.C. To Treat Legal Gun Owners Like Criminals, Demanding FIngerprinting, Mugshots

D.C. To Treat Legal Gun Owners Like Criminals, Demanding FIngerprinting, Mugshots

-By Warner Todd Huston

If you are a legal gun owner with a clean record in Washington D.C., you are going to be treated like criminal anyway as the District intends to institute a new gun control measure that will require every legal gun owner to be fingerprinted, give mug shots, and have criminal background checks performed all at their own cost, too.

D.C.’s new laws are set to take effect on January 1, and would seem to be overly intrusive and unconstitutional. Residents have until December 15 to have their say on the law, but it won’t likely make much difference if every citizen in the District complained. Our rulers don’t care what we think. They know better.

Imagine if journalists were treated this way in order to observe their First Amendment rights?

As The Rest of Us Suffer, Obama to Give Unions Free Pass on Obamacare Fees

-By Warner Todd Huston

Obama is piling the unfair and exorbitant costs of Obamacare onto the middle class again, this time giving a break to his union buddies and heaping the costs onto the rest of us.

Obama is floating the idea of allowing his union pals to get out of having to pay a “re-insurance fee” that is required by Obamacare and forcing the rest of us to make up the difference.

This temporary fee is supposed to kick in next year and was meant to raise $25 billion over a three-year period to help pay the costs of those poor folks with pre-existing conditions.

But the unions have said that they don’t care about those people and they want out of having to pay the fee. And since Obama is bought and paid for by his union overloards, he is looking at a convenient “rules change” to exempt the unions from having to pay the fee–meaning the rest of us will have to make up the difference.

Professor Noel Ignatiev, Massachusetts College.

A tax-paid professor from Massachusetts College says if you are a white male you should commit suicide because you are evil.

This from tenured professor Noel Ignatiev of Massachusetts College. Here are this tax-supported “teacher’s” own words:

“If you are a white male, you don’t deserve to live. You are a cancer, you’re a disease, white males have never contributed anything positive to the world! They only murder, exploit and oppress non-whites! At least a white woman can have sex with a black man and make a brown baby but what can a white male do? He’s good for nothing. Slavery, genocides against aboriginal peoples and massive land confiscation, the inquisition, the holocaust, white males are all to blame! You maintain your white male privilege only by oppressing, discriminating against and enslaving others!”

Man Makes Firing Gun From Items TSA Allows on Airplanes

-By Warner Todd Huston

This is not only pretty funny, but quite inventive. A man in Tennessee has made a firing gun from the sort of items that you can buy in an airport terminal after passing through security, items deemed safe enough by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) that passengers can carry onto a flight.


The gun that Evan Booth terms a “breakback shotgun,” or a “blunderbuss,” is made of things like a Red Bull can, a hair dryer, a refrigerator magnate, batteries, a rubberized hair band, magazines and packing tape, but it can fire its projectile (made of coins) through a piece of drywall at 260 foot pounds per second.

Obama To Use Executive Order to Force New Gun Control Laws by Fiat

-By Warner Todd Huston

President Obama wants to slap more gun control policies on the country but can’t get Congress to act. So, he’s using his fiat powers to regulate to curb our Second Amendment rights.

President Obama has finally learned that he can’t get anything through Congress. And after Obamacare, his one main, dubious achievement, is crashing and burning, it is no wonder Congress won’t listen to him. But that won’t stop him from using his power to regulate to force his ideas on us all. One of those unpassable ideas he has is to slap more gun control on us and he’s looking to use his regulatory powers to do so because he can’t get Congress to act.

One of the new changes to regulation that Obama is going to try and force on the country is new theft reporting procedures.

Currently a gun seller–whether it is a gun retail shop or a manufacturer–is required to report the theft of any firearms as soon as they notice the theft.

It looks like Obama plans to force gun sellers to initiate a regular inventory system to detect thefts earlier.

British School Threatens to Label Students ‘Racists’ Unless They Attend Islam Field Trip

-By Warner Todd Huston


England’s Staffordshire University.

British citizens are up in arms at a British primary school that has threatened to label kids as “racists” for years on their public school record if they refuse to attend a field trip meant to push Islam on kids. This is a sick example of multiculturalism by force, apparently.

Lynn Small, headmistress at Littleton Green Community School in Huntington, Staffordshire UK, sent a letter home with kids informing parents that if their kids were withheld from a special workshop meant to push Islam a “racial discrimination note” would be attached to their permanent school record and they’d be branded racists for years to come.


Letter sent home to parents. (Click to see larger)

The kids are in what we would call a grade school here in the USA in a school that serves kids from 8-years to 11.

The headmistress’ letter says the field trip is part of a “statutory requirement” for kids “to learn about different cultures.”

Obama, You’re No Abe Lincoln

Chuck Busch

This month, our country is remembering two famous Americans, Abraham Lincoln and John F. Kennedy. On November 19, 1863, Abraham Lincoln delivered his short (about 3 minutes) but inspiring speech at the dedication of the soldier’s cemetery in Gettysburg. November 22 marks the date when an assassin’s bullet ended the life of President Kennedy in Dallas, Texas exactly 50 years ago. Our current president has often sought to align or identify himself with either president at one time or another hoping that by association, some of their popularity might transfer to him. President Obama has characteristically had a way of inserting himself into every subject of historical note as the government’s historical website can attest to. The account of American’s remarkable achievements have been recently updated to reflect the current administration’s “contributions” to this country’s progress.

Though there have been many occasions where Obama has put on the Kennedy mantle, his keen interest appears to be the Lincoln one. In fact, he used the Lincoln bible for swearing in his oath of office at his two inaugurations. Here’s indisputable proof that greatness cannot be acquired by osmosis. He might have as well sworn in on a Marvel comic book because since he entered office he has deliberately and flagrantly circumvented the sacred oath to protect and preserve the Constitution.

A brief comparison of the two men and their respective visions for America however reveals how implausible it would be to interpose one for the other. This was glaringly apparent recently when Obama declined an invitation to speak at the Gettysburg ceremonies, explaining that he simply was too busy to attend. In other words, he had more important things to deal with (like repairing the DemolitionCare PR damage), then to pay homage to a man who in just a few eloquent and poetic words captured the essence of our Constitutional Republic and inspired the country to persevere. Lincoln managed to make it in the midst of conducting a enormous nationwide military campaign and running the government with just a very few aids, no massive security detail, no four speech writers and no teleprompter which had not been invented as yet.

Obama Wasn’t The Only Democrat Who Lied About Keeping Our Healthcare

-By Warner Todd Huston

Of course, we are all now thoroughly familiar with the four years of lies President Obama laid on us about keeping our healthcare insurance and doctors “if we like them.” But Obama wasn’t the only liar. He had a phalanx of elected Democrats ladling on the same lie to their voters. Here are their quotes.

Rep. Butterfield: “For North Carolinians who already have health insurance, the only changes you will see under the Affordable Care Act are new benefits, better protections from insurance company abuses, and more value for every dollar you spend on health care. If you like your plan you can keep it, and you don’t have to change a thing due to the health care law.” (“Health Care Resources,” as seen on 10/24/2013)

Rep. Cárdenas: “If you have insurance right now, your plan stays the same. This means if you get your health insurance through work, if you have Medicare or if you are a member of California Healthy Families, you keep that coverage.” (“What Valley Residents Need to Know about Health Care Reform”)

Rep. Castor: “…If you like your health insurance, you can keep it. Keep your current doctor as you see fit.” (“What Does Health Insurance Reform Mean for You?”)

“Nothing in this bill will force you to drop your current coverage. Rest assured, if you like your health insurance, you can keep it.” (Press Release, 7/31/2009)

On November 8, The New York Times reported that Bloomberg had spiked several stories that were thought to have been angering Chinese authorities.

Bloomberg editor Matthew Winkler was reported as having said in a company conference call that the self-censorship was akin to foreign news bureaus preserving their ability to report inside Nazi Germany during WWII.

U.S. Post Office Celebrates Kwanzaa and Hanukkah… but NOT Christmas

-By Warner Todd Huston


The U.S.Post Office Holiday Stamps Flier

A new print ad for the U.S. Post office reminding customers about its wonderful new holiday stamps seems to be missing the “Christmas” part of the holidays. The ad features a Hanukkah menorah stamp, a Kwanzaa stamp and that wonderful standby Christian stamp… the gingerbread house. Yes, the Post Office just excluded Christmas in its ad.

The advertisement is a mailer sent to American’s homes to remind them of the holiday stamps offered by the U.S. Post Office.

As is clearly seen, the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah is celebrated by a stamp. So is the fake African American “holiday,” Kwanzaa. But instead of Christmas being celebrated, we get a gingerbread house. Where is Christmas?

As the wags at Twitchy noted, “One of these USPS holiday stamps is not like the others.”

Breitbart News has an explosive exclusive report about a recent conference call held by Karl Rove during which, Breitbart says, Senate GOP Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R, KY) said that the tea partiers are “bullies” and he intends to “punch them in the nose.”

For Breitbart, Matthew Boyle writes that a strategy call was recently sponsored by Crossroads America, the GOP PAC headed up by anti-conservative and establishment guru Karl Rove, and on the call tea party activists and conservatives came in for harsh criticism by no less then leader McConnell himself.

Boyle writes that a participant on the call contacted him and said that McConnell attacked Senators Mike Lee and Ted Cruz by name. But what McConnell said at the end of the call was the most adversarial statement.

Is Common Core Causing Kids to Self-Mutilate?

-By Warner Todd Huston

The new Common Core school curriculum is being panned by freedom-loving Americans everywhere, but even many education experts and others are against the new education scheme. Now, a clinical social worker in New York is saying that the Common Core system is causing kids to self-mutilate.

Mary Calamia of Stony Brook, New York, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, recently testified at the Suffolk County Education Forum hosted by the New York State Assembly Minority Education Committee and said that the Common Core system is causing many unforeseen problems for kids.

The forum was held to discuss the increased instances of self-mutilation being seen in students, especially among honor students, since Common Core has been implemented.

Calamia says that the increased stress on students visited upon them by Common Core requirements are driving them to perform these increased instances of self-cutting. But this is happening because, in her opinion, the kids are being expected to perform things that they simply don’t have the physical abilities to perform.

Why No JFK 50th Anniversary Post? Why Celebrate Corruption?

Why No JFK 50th Anniversary Post? Why Celebrate Corruption?

-By Warner Todd Huston

Unless you are living under a rock, you’ll know that everyone is commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. I have not posted a thing about it until now. Why? Because I don’t want to celebrate the corruption that is the Kennedy family and the failed President that is their most famous son.

The fact is, if JFK had not been assassinated, he’d be remembered as a do nothing President that was high on soaring–but empty–rhetoric and a bit light on action. Worse his many sex scandals and his inability to do anything consequential.

But worse than a middling President that had no real signature success on his account, celebrating his family is the worst thing that could happen to this nation.

The Kennedy fortune was built on law breaking, no one can deny. Joseph Kennedy made his billions selling illegal alcohol during prohibition. Then he bankrupted nearly every partner he ever had. He was a criminal. Plain and simple. Worse, he supported Hitler in the ramping up of WWII!

Rare Obamacare Success Story: A Dog in Colorado Gets Insured

-By Warner Todd Huston

Obamacare has been an absolute disaster all across the United States. Millions of Americans have lost their insurance due to the new rules that Obama put in place with his Obamacare law. But there is one success to report. In Colorado a man just learned that his dog got covered by Obamacare.

A man in Fort Collins, Colorado, received an interesting letter in the mail from his Obamacare administrators. His 14-year-old Yorkie dog got covered by Obamacare.

As Fox 31, Denver, reports, “Shane Smith, of Fort Collins, says his dog Baxter received a letter informing him that a health insurance account had been opened in his name through Connect for Health Colorado.”

“I thought, ‘Wow, this is so awesome,'” Smith told the media. “They have gone out of their way to insure my 14-year-old Yorkie.”

Atheists Force School to Cancel Christmas Toy Drive Because: Religion

Atheists Force School to Cancel Christmas Toy Drive Because: Religion

-By Warner Todd Huston

A school in South Carolina has been forced to cancel its annual toy collection drive for the charity Operation Christmas Child by atheists who claim that the event is “religious” and therefore should not be allowed.

For the past three years East Point Academy in West Columbia, S.C., has been participating in the toy drive for needy children. But this year the school has had to cancel their participation because an atheist group sent a letter to the school threatening to sue over the false “separation of church and state” issue.

School principal, Renee Mathews, is flabbergasted by the absurd letter saying that the only “religious” part of the toy drive is the word “Christmas” in its title. Otherwise there is not a single mention of religion in anything concerning the event. It’s just a toy drive for needy kids.

Texas Cops Illegally Stopping Drivers Demanding Blood, Saliva, Breath Tests

Texas Cops Illegally Stopping Drivers Demanding Blood, Saliva, Breath Tests

-By Warner Todd Huston

A report from North Texas reveals that the federal government is creating illegal roadblocks in 30 cities demanding that drivers give them blood samples, cheek swabs for DNA, and/or breathalyzer tests.

NBC TV in Dallas Fort Worth revealed a woman who told them that she was waved over to a parking lot by Fort Worth police. Once in the parking lot government workers demanded that she give them DNA or blood.

The drivers were told everything was voluntary and that no testing would be done without their consent but that turned out to be a lie as the consent form clearly shows that testing was done by a remote testing device as the drivers were approached and even before they were told why they were pulled over.

NBC had a civil liberties expert tell them that this was all quite illegal. Police cannot randomly pull people over without cause.

INFURIATING VIDEO: Obama’s Medicare Officer Spins One Lie After Another in Testimony

INFURIATING VIDEO: Obama’s Medicare Officer Spins One Lie After Another in Testimony

-By Warner Todd Huston

As a result of the massive failure of Obamacare, Obama’s Medicaid info chief was brought before Congress for questioning. His testimony is an infuriating example of a man who hasn’t a clue what is going despite that he is supposed to be in charge but spins lie after lie to cover up that fact, anyway.

Without doubt, the rollout of the Obamacare websites have been an absolute disaster, not just for the national site but in every state. Congress had questions for Medicaid and Medicare Deputy Chief Information Officer, Henry Chao and his answers were a cascade of obfuscation and wild spin empty of facts.

Chao began his “testimony” telling Congress he had no idea how much code would have to be written to make the Obamacare website work properly. Then he went on to belch out all sorts of conflicting statistics that don’t seem rooted in reality.

At one point he says that 40 to 50 percent of the website, healthcare.gov, is working properly then only minutes later says that percentage is 60 to 70 percent. So, which is it, Mr. Chao?

He also reports that the payment calculator is either not even built yet or is there but just not functioning properly. It can’t be both, Mr. Chao.

For being the chief information officer, this guy has no real information at all.
