The Devil at Work!

BRUSSELS, April 23, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – In an astonshing display of gentleness in the face of a vile attack, the head of the Catholic Church in Belgium, Archbishop Andre-Joseph Leonard, remained calmly seated with eyes closed in prayer Tuesday as four topless women attacked him with shouts and curses and doused him with water. 


It’s not the first time the bishop has been attacked for standing up for the Church’s teachings on homosexuality and expressing his concern for those who live the homosexual lifestyle.

The incident took place at the ULB University in Brussels where the archbishop was participating in a debate on blasphemy laws.

The four women, representing the pro-abortion and homosexual group FEMEN, took to the stage where they disrobed to reveal black-painted slogans on their bare chests and backs, such as ‘my body my rules,’ and ‘anus dei is coming.’ They also held signs reading ‘stop homophobia’. The women doused the archbishop with water from bottles formed in the image of the Virgin Mary.

Hillary Clinton lied to Congress.

“On April 19, 2012, the response cable from the Department of State to Embassy Tripoli, bearing Secretary Clinton’s signature, acknowledges Ambassador Cretz’s request for additional security but instead articulates a plan to scale back security assets for the U.S. Mission in Libya, including the Benghazi Mission,” the House report says.

Questions about the Marathon Terrorists!

The mother of the Boston terrorist bombers is pure gold for people trying to get the point across that this entire Boston thing was motivated by Islam. Notice the media are trying to cover less and less of this story? Notice how few questions the MSM are asking all of a sudden? Here’s some – where did the money for the expensive cars, guns, and school come from? Why did the son’s wife say he was watching the daughter on the day he was dropping the bombs off? Why does no one mention the domestic violence charge against Tamerlan that didn’t raise a red flag? Why did the wife just look the other way when Tamerlan took off for six months? Why was not a trace of bomb material or any weapons of any kind found at the brothers’ apartment? How did the cops lose the younger brother for so many hours when they found his abandoned car, he was bleeding (per the guy who found him hiding in the boat) and no dogs were brought out to sniff him out from the car to the boat when he left an obvious trail?

Romney wasn’t just talking about the touchscreen at Wawa being “amazing”; he was talking about it being “amazing” in light of his anecdote told just before about how inefficient government bureaucracy was.

LiveLeak.com – Obama’s buddy: I get up every morning and think…today I’m going to end capitalism


Not-So-Smooth Operator

Something’s happening to President Obama’s relationship with those who are inclined not to like his policies. They are now inclined not to like him. His supporters would say, “Nothing new there,” but actually I think there is. I’m referring to the broad, stable, nonradical, non-birther right. Among them the level of dislike for the president has ratcheted up sharply the past few months.

New HHS Report Shows How Health Law Threatens State & Federal Budgets, Sustainability of Medicaid Programptional)

March 27, 2012

An overdue U.S. Department of Health and Human Services report on the fiscal status of the Medicaid program, requested by House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Fred Upton (R-Mich.) and Senate Finance Committee Ranking Member Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), demonstrates the significant burden the expansion of this program will have on federal and state budgets. The U.S. Supreme Court will hear arguments on the constitutionality of the partisan health law’s Medicaid expansion – the largest since its inception more than 45 years ago – on Wednesday.

Below are some of the report’s key findings:

  • The health spending law drives up federal Medicaid costs by $619 billion through 2020.  “The Affordable Care Act is projected to increase Medicaid expenditures by a total of $619 billion for 2011 through 2020…” (Page iv)
  • The health spending law will make nearly 26 million more Americans dependent on Medicaid.  “This expansion, together with greater participation by individuals eligible under current rules, is projected to add… 25.9 million people by 2020 — 44 percent… compared to pre-Affordable Care Act estimates.”  (Page iv)
  • Medicaid expansion brings total burden on state budgets to $2.3 trillion through 2020, crowding out other local priorities such as education and law enforcement.  Total state spending on Medicaid through 2020 is expected to total $2.3 trillion. (Page 19)
  • Medicaid’s mission has been compromised.  While Medicaid was originally designed as a safety net, serving just 4 million people in 1966, by 2020 there will be 85 million Americans, meaning at least 1 in 4 Americans will be dependent on the government program Medicaid. (Page 19)
  • Medicaid consumes the largest health-related share of FEDERAL revenues. “For the Federal government, Medicaid is the largest source of general revenue-based spending on health services. Notably, Medicaid is a larger source of such Federal expenditures than Medicare.” (Page 25)
  • Medicaid consumes the largest health-related share of STATE budgets. “For State governments, as with the Federal government, Medicaid is the largest source of general revenue-based spending on health services…” (Page 25)
  • There are now more individuals dependent on Medicaid than Medicare.  “Medicaid is also larger than Medicare in terms of the number of people covered. In FY 2010, Medicaid was estimated to have covered 53.9 million PYE, and 67.7 million people were enrolled in the program at some point during the year. In comparison, Medicare covered an average of 47.5 million people during CY 2010.” (Page 25)

This Congress, Hatch and Upton, whose committees have jurisdiction over the Medicaid program, have championed efforts in Washington to overhaul the broken entitlement program, including the State Flexibility Act to repeal the onerous Maintenance of Effort (MOE) requirements that were included in the new health law. They have consistently said the highly successful, bipartisan welfare reform of 1996 – where states led the way to provide the best solutions for a broken program – should be the model to modernize Medicaid.
