    I was very pleased when President Trump signed his first executive order to dismantle ObamaCare in the face of the Republican Congress having broken its repeatedly made promise and pretense to do the same. However, I was utterly repulsed by an aspect of what happened at that event. Therefore, I am taking time from completing my forthcoming book* to comment on what I consider to be the despicable obscenity of RINO Virginia Foxx worming her way (15:52) to be next to Mr. Trump. Foxy weasel Foxx obviously hoped to benefit from the public opposition to the very ObamaCare monstrosity that...

    House GOP would let employers demand workers' genetic test results House Republicans would let employers demand workers’ genetic test results By Sharon Begley @sxbegle March 10, 2017 A little-noticed bill moving through Congress would allow companies to require employees to undergo genetic testing or risk paying a penalty of thousands of dollars, and would let employers see that genetic and other health information. Giving employers such power is now prohibited by legislation including the 2008 genetic privacy and nondiscrimination law known as GINA. The new bill gets around that landmark law by stating explicitly that GINA and other protections do...
  • In Foxx, Trump & DeVos Have a Staunch Education Ally (Rep. Virginia Foxx, R-NC)

    With control of all three branches of government, Republicans are set on unraveling President Obama's education legacy and pushing an unprecedented amount of funding and authority back to states. Leading this charge is Rep. Virginia Foxx, the newly appointed chairwoman of the House Education and the Workforce Committee. Her mission, as she told RealClearPolitics in an interview for the new episode of the “First 100 Days” podcast series, is to make the federal government “as minimal as possible.” In fact, the North Carolina Republican has no qualms about abolishing the entire Department of Education. “If the Lord put me in...

    Actor Jamie Foxx has met with President Nicolas Maduro in Venezuela. Foxx, who won the Oscar Award for “Ray” in 2004, visited Maduro in the presidential palace in Caracas. State media said Foxx was there to support the country’s socialist revolution and attend the signing of an agreement between Venezuela and its allies for the construction of houses for the poor. Foxx posed for photos with the deeply-unpopular president of the economically embattled South American country.

    Jamie Foxx doesn't think Fox News star Bill O'Reilly star is a bad guy. The two got to know each other recently at a charity event, and Foxx explored both his impression of the pundit and Fox News' editorial process earlier this week with The Daily Beast. In doing so, Foxx insinuated the conservative channel's coverage reflects an animosity toward people of color. When it comes to Bill O’Reilly or Fox News, what people aren’t factoring in is that they have a huge audience and that’s how they make their money. It’s hard to do, but you sort of have...

    Human beings have some odd sexual fetishes. My friend of over twenty-two years, Liz Lightspeed (no need to hide her identity – she’s very proud of, and public with, what she does) makes her money choking guys unconscious and being paid to pose with other women pretending to fight. Not entirely my thing, but hell, if there’s a market for it, knock yourselves out (literally). I have a former lady-friend (of sorts) whose only work since we went our separate ways has been on a foot fetish website. I have another female friend whose fan base likes to see muscular...

    Here we go again, Obama Rapture Redux: Meanwhile Obama and company are all over the airwaves calling for tax hikes on the rich because a few billion will fix everything, which is complete baloney: I’m simply staggered at the number of things that raising taxes on the rich is now supposed to fix. A partial list: Our crumbling roads, our cracked bridges, our decaying electrical grid, our failing schools, our bankrupt entitlements, our reliance on fossil fuels, and our over-extended public pensions. But why will billions more dollars succeed when trillions of dollars have failed? We pour more money...

    Raleigh, N.C. – John Lassiter has taken a 50-46 lead in Public Policy Polling’s final survey of the Charlotte Mayoral race, an outcome that is still within the poll’s margin of error. White undecideds moved in Lassiter’s direction over the final days, giving him a staggering 68-29 lead with that group. Foxx leads 86-12 with African Americans. Lassiter leads 51-40 with independents, continuing a double digit lead he’s shown with those voters in every poll of the race. He’s also winning 17% of the Democratic vote while Foxx is only getting 9% of Republicans to cross over. The primary reason...

    Detained Academy Award-winning director and convicted sex offender Roman Polanski may have the support of some famous faces in the film industry, but don’t count Jamie Foxx among them. According to the actor, he only needs to imagine the 1977 case against Polanski is a personal one to find his feelings. “If it had been my daughter who was barely a teenager — my daughter is 15 — Roman Polanski would be missing ... period,” Foxx stated in an interview with Parade magazine

    Jamie Foxx is the latest celebrity to stand up and celebrate, following Barack Obama’s victory in the presidential election. “It was absolutely incredible,” Jamie told Access Hollywood’s Shaun Robinson in an exclusive interview. “I’m standing around all dudes and we are breaking out in tears.” When Shaun caught up with Jamie on the set of his new music video, “Just Like Me,” the Oscar winner said Obama’s victory has instilled a sense of “responsibility” in all African-Americans. “I don’t know how people felt but I know how I felt, as far as being an African-American male,” Foxx added. “I speak...

    Rep. Sue Myrick (R-N.C.) let slip a bombshell disclosure at a news conference today to announce a bill targeting states that allow illegal aliens to get drivers licenses. During the Q&A with reporters, Myrick gave as a reason for proposing the bill the recent capture of three al Qaeda terrorists at the U.S.-Mexico border. A check of Google News turned up no references to this incident, yet Myrick stated this was a 'given fact.' No reporter asked her about this revelation, but it was noted at the end of a Charlotte Observer article by Tim Funk. Two Representatives from North...

    RALEIGH – During the two heartbreaking weeks after Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans and other Gulf Coast communities, Congress passed two separate relief bills totaling $62.3 billion. Supporters portrayed the aid packages as emergency measures and desperately needed. But six weeks later, according to media reports, the federal government has spent or contracted to spend only about a quarter of the money, or $16.2 billion. Louisiana Gov. Kathleen Blanco expressed disappointment with the relatively slow spending pace, but other politicians and observers – including members of Congress – have registered their satisfaction that careful analysis and bidding procedures have preceded...

    We have a serious problem here in North Carolina – a problem that can have serious ramifications on our national security. According to the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators, we live in one of 10 states that permits anyone to receive state issued driver’s licenses or identification cards without providing proof of their legal status. While this may at first seem insignificant, you may recall that each of the terrorists who hijacked the airplanes on Sept. 11, 2001 held valid driver’s licenses or identification cards. Those little pieces of plastic granted a false sense of legitimacy and helped the...
