A controversial end-of-life care pathway already known to be killing thousands of elderly patients in U.K. hospitals is now being used to euthanize children and infants.
As if health insurance premiums weren’t rising quickly enough already, ObamaCare — sold as a way to reduce healthcare costs — is going to make them jump another $63 per person per year beginning in 2014.
Americans may be enamored with Social Security, Medicare, and sundry other unconstitutional federal policies, but according to a new USA Today/Gallup poll, a sizable majority of them stands with the Constitution when it comes to marijuana laws.
The Obama administration made a deal with a private company to develop and police federal health insurance exchanges, then helped cover up the fact that the company was bought by a major player in the healthcare industry, the Weekly Standard reports.
According to European Commission documents released Tuesday by WikiLeaks, two high-ranking U.S. politicians are responsible, at least in part, for a financial blockade that the organization claims has cut off 95 percent of its revenue. Those politicians are Sen. Joseph Lieberman (I-Conn.) and Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.), both of whom pressured MasterCard, and possibly Visa, into refusing to process payments to WikiLeaks, the documents reveal.
Citing “a pattern of behavior directed at subverting transparency,” the House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology is requesting information from Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) administrator Lisa Jackson concerning secret e-mail accounts she and other senior EPA officials are allegedly using to circumvent federal openness laws.
On November 8 around 6:00 p.m., a Florida man was tasered by police while trying to protect his house from a fire in a neighboring house.
“It was horrible,” recalled Daniel Jensen of Pinellas Park, Florida. “I was laying in a puddle of water being electrocuted here by the people that are supposed to protect us. I’m trying to protect my family, my neighbor, and they bring harm to me. I don’t understand.”
ObamaCare’s employer mandate is supposed to guarantee that every working American is able to obtain health insurance through his employer.

The Danish government repealed a year-old tax on fatty foods because it wasn't keeping Danes from eating them and was causing job losses.
Opponents of the Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST) should be encouraged by the outcome of Tuesday’s Senate elections, according to Patrick Goodenough of CNSNews.com.
As of last summer, 34 Republican senators, led by Sen. Jim DeMint (S.C.), had gone on the record opposing ratification of the treaty. Although Democrats gained two seats in the election, giving them an eight-seat edge over Republicans (10 if one includes the two seats that will be held by independents caucusing with Democrats), the number of LOST opponents has probably increased by two, Goodenough calculates.
But many LOST opponents suspect Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) will try to ram the treaty through during the lame-duck session before the end of the year — seemingly more probable now that the number of anti-LOST senators is certain to grow when the Senate convenes in January.
