Soros-Owned Restaurant Sued For Wage Violations

From the Washington Free Beacon:

Soros-Owned Restaurant Sued for Wage Violations

March 31, 2015

A Syracuse, N.Y., restaurant owned by the liberal billionaire George Soros doesn’t pay its tipped employees fair wages, some of those employees alleged in a lawsuit filed this week. Those employees signed on to a class suit lodged this week against the Dinosaur Bar-B-Que restaurant chain, the Syracuse Post-Standard reported on Monday.

The suit claims Dinosaur failed to properly use the “tipped credit” provision in federal law, which requires employers to make up the difference between tips and pay to meet minimum wage standard.

It also says Dinosaur required tipped employees to spend more than 20 percent of their work day doing “side work,” which includes setting up dining areas, for which they do not get tipped.

NYT: Comedy Central ‘Stands Behind’ Trevor Noah

From a cheering New York Times:

Comedy Central Stands Behind Trevor Noah, New ‘Daily Show’ Host, Amid Scrutiny

By DAVE ITZKOFF | March 31, 2015

Within hours of the announcement that he had been named the new host of “The Daily Show,” the comedian Trevor Noah was subjected to the full scrutiny of the Internet.

As potential audience members scoured his past work and social media presence for more clues to Mr. Noah, a South African comedian, they uncovered many posts on his Twitter account that they deemed offensive to women or Jews…

That should read: "women and Jews." As well as fat people. Conservatives. White people.

Mr. Noah often posts irreverent statements that reflect his interests in popular culture, global politics and issues of race.

Obama Commutes Sentences For 22 Drug Dealers

From Bloomberg:

Obama Commutes Sentences for 22 Convicted of Federal Drug Crimes

Justin Sink | March 31, 2015

(Bloomberg) — President Barack Obama commuted the sentences of 22 drug offenders serving time in federal prison, accelerating the administration’s efforts to reduce penalties for many of those convicted of such crimes.

Obama’s decision, announced on Tuesday, more than doubles the number of commutations he has issued, and is the latest sign that the White House is taking aim at a drug war the president has characterized as counterproductive.

After all we know by now that selling drugs is really a victimless crime. It’s not like illegal drug use hurts society or costs the taxpayers any money. Like, say, childhood obesity does.

Many of those freed by the commutations, including eight inmates who received life sentences, would have already served their time under today’s drug laws and sentencing policies, according to White House counsel Neil Eggleston…

Lest we forget, these stiff prison sentences were demanded by the black leaders including the newly formed Congressional Black Caucus, who (rightfully) saw how illegal drug use, especially crack cocaine, was destroying ‘the community.’ Where are they now?

Obama-Care Lets Trannies Sue For ‘Discrimination’

From CNS News:

Obama-Appointed Judge: Obamacare Allows Transgenders to Sue for Discrimination

By Penny Starr | March 31, 2015

(CNSNews.com) – U.S. District Judge Susan Richard Nelson, an Obama appointee on the U.S. District Court for the District of Minnesota, ruled earlier this month that the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, allows transgender people to sue if they feel they have been discriminated against by a health care provider.

“Section 1557 prohibits discrimination on the ground of race, color, national origin, sex, age, or disability under ‘any health program or activity, any part of which is receiving Federal financial assistance … or under any program or activity that is administered by an Executive agency or any entity established under [Title I of ACA],’ the HHS Civil Rights Division states on its website.

2,000 Illegal Alien ‘Children’ Come To US Each Month

From National Review:

Report: More Than 2,000 Illegal Immigrant Children Are Arriving Each Month in 2015

By Ryan Lovelace | March 31, 2015

More than 2,000 illegal immigrant children continue to arrive in the U.S. each month, according to Department of Homeland Security statistics compiled by the Center for Immigration Studies.

That’s not possible. Obama and his news media have said the flood of illegal alien children stopped long ago.

While more illegal immigrant children are entering the country this fiscal year than at this point in fiscal years 2012 and 2013, the number of children crossing the border has not yet surged as it did last year.

This has been a hard winter, hasn’t it? Besides, even the amazingly ‘fertile’ Central American countries need a little time to restock their surplus of ‘children.’

The Center for Immigration Studies’ report shows that 84 percent of the children crossing the border are teenagers, most of whom are male…

How wonderful.

IRS Ignores 60% Of Taxpayer Calls As April 15 Nears

First from the Washington Times:

IRS ignoring 60 percent of taxpayers’ calls as deadline looms

By Stephen Dinan | March 31, 2015

IRS Commissioner John Koskinen said Tuesday that service at his agency has gotten so bad that they are ignoring more than 60 percent of taxpayers’ phone calls during this tax season.

Given that the IRS is notorious for giving taxpayers wrong information on their ‘help line,’ is this really such a loss? Still, wouldn’t it be great if we could return the favor and ignore their calls?

Speaking at the National Press Club, Mr. Koskinen pleaded with more money, saying a budget boost would help them staff their overwhelmed customer service lines…

Maybe if the IRS employees spent more time doing their jobs instead of auditing conservatives and denying them tax exempt status and trying to find out their donors, they wouldn’t need more staff.

Arkansas Bucks Walmart, Passes Its Own RRFA Law

From USA Today:

Despite uproar in Indiana, Arkansas presses on

By Maureen Groppe | March 31, 2015

WASHINGTON — A "religious freedom" measure similar to Indiana’s is close to becoming law in Arkansas, despite the national uproar and economic boycott Indiana faces as Gov. Mike Pence scrambles to change his state’s law.

The nerve of the Arkansas legislature going against the will of the people Democrats and their media minions like this. And we used to think Arkansas was so enlightened. After all, they elected Bill Clinton governor twice.

Oh, that’s right. Bill Clinton said of the Restoration Of Religious Freedom Act, while he was signing it: "The power of god is such, that even in the legislative process, miracles can happen."

Arkansas lawmakers approved the bill Tuesday, and Arkansas Gov.

Politico: Indiana Backs GOP Hopefuls Into A Corner

First there is this from the Washington Post:

Indiana law draws Republican White House hopefuls into the culture wars

By Philip Rucker and Robert Costa | March 31, 2015

The national debate over an Indiana religious-liberties law seen as anti-gay has drawn the entire field of Republican presidential contenders into the divisive culture wars, which badly damaged Mitt Romney in 2012 and which GOP leaders eagerly sought to avoid in the 2016 race.

Gee, how did that ever happen? The only surprise is that the Democrats pulled out this ploy so early in the 2016 campaign. But it also helps to distract the great unwashed from Hillary’s obstruction of justice and Obama giving Iran the bomb.

Most top Republican presidential hopefuls this week have moved in lock step, and without pause, to support Indiana Gov.

Half Of Swing State Voters Say Hillary Is Not Honest

From the Politico:

Swing-state poll shows ‘red flag’ for Hillary Clinton

By Kendall Breitman | March 31, 2015

Hillary Clinton appears to have been damaged by revelations about her email use and is not seen as honest or trustworthy by about half of voters in three key states, according to a new poll.

Just imagine the poll results if Hillary’s email story was being fully and accurately reported by our news media guardians?

A Quinnipiac University poll released Tuesday compares the former secretary of state with potential Republican candidates in swing states Florida, Pennsylvania and Ohio.

In Florida, former Gov. Jeb Bush leads Clinton 45 percent to 42 percent. On Feb. 3, Clinton led Bush in Florida 44 percent to 43 percent.

In Ohio, Clinton leads all Republicans, but some, like Chris Christie, are gaining ground.

Indiana Got 3X More Coverage Than Hillary Emails

From NewsBusters:

Nets Devote 3x More Time to Indiana Law Than Hillary E-Mail Server Wipe

By Geoffrey Dickens | March 31, 2015

The stunning revelation that Hillary Clinton wiped her personal e-mail server clean is the kind of political cover-up that should have sent the networks into overdrive, except they had an even more important agenda to advance: smearing an entire state and its Republican governor as anti-gay bigots.

It’s as if the networks had ignored Nixon’s 18 minute gap in order to cover kitten up a tree. Especially, since the federal government and 19 other states have had Restoration Of Religious Freedom Act laws on their books for over 22 years.

From the morning of March 27 through March 30 evening the Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC) networks spent only 10 minutes and 15 seconds to the admission by Clinton’s own attorney that her State Department e-mails were wiped from the server that had been subpoenaed by Congress, but they devoted a whopping 35 minutes and 1 seconds to coverage of the Indiana religious freedom law.

Reid Is Proud He Slandered Romney Over His Taxes

From the Washington Examiner:

Harry Reid is proud he lied about Mitt Romney’s taxes

By Ashe Schow | March 31, 2015

Harry Reid, D-Nev. has no regrets about his 2012 claims that then presidential candidate Mitt Romney paid no taxes for 10 years. The outgoing Senate Minority Leader even bragged to CNN that the comments, which had been described as McCarthyism, helped keep Romney from winning the election.

If it was ‘McCarthyism,’ it was Charlie McCarthyism. In reality, the former Senator from Wisconsin, Joe McCarthy, actually told the truth. (As the NSA’s Venona Project has long since borne out.)

"They can call it whatever they want. Romney didn’t win did he?" Reid said during a wide-ranging interview. So, in Reid’s world, it is perfectly acceptable to make a defamatory charge against an opponent to damage his campaign.

Obama (Grudgingly) Resumes Military Aid To Egypt

From a clearly ticked off Reuters:

Obama ends freeze on U.S. military aid to Egypt

By Roberta Rampton and Arshad Mohammed | March 31, 2015

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The United States announced on Tuesday it was lifting its hold on the supply of military equipment to Egypt, which was frozen when the military took power in Cairo nearly two years ago. The White House said President Barack Obama was freeing up the equipment and making other changes to military ties with Washington’s long-time ally to support U.S. interests while encouraging Egypt’s political reforms.

How big of Obama. It only took him two years and the rise of ISIS to grudgingly forgive Egyptian military for saving their country from the terrorist Muslim Brotherhood.

The same Muslim Brotherhood that Obama helped to overthrow one of our staunchest allies in the region, Hosni Mubarak in the gold days of the ‘Arab Spring.’ (Which was entirely invented by Qatar and Al Jazeera and the Muslim Brotherhood.)

Obama directed the release of 12 Lockheed Martin F-16 aircraft, 20 Boeing Harpoon missiles, and up to 125 M1A1 Abrams tank kits made by General Dynamics, National Security Council spokesperson Bernadette Meehan said.

Obama In 2007: Iran Only Wants ‘Defensive’ Nukes

From National Review:

Flashback: Obama: Iran Only Wants ‘Defensive’ Nukes

By Joel Gehrke | March 31, 2015

If President Obama seems less worried than Israel that Iran will obtain nuclear weapons as a result of his administration’s negotiations with the regime, maybe that’s because he’s less worried than Israel about Iran having nuclear weapons.

“I think Iran is like North Korea,” Obama told David Brooks when he was running for president in 2007. “They see nuclear arms in defensive terms, as a way to prevent regime change.” …

So Obama thinks it makes sense for a country to nuke its political opposition? And David Brooks thought this was brilliant? (Was this the meeting where Brooks was so agog with the crease in Obama’s pants?)

In reality, the Iranian Mullahs want nuclear weapons because they want to bring about the apocalypse that is necessary for the Twelfth Mahdi to get out of the well.

Iran Talks Miss Deadline, Another ‘Red Line’ Crossed

From seemingly surprised Reuters:

Iran nuclear talks miss deadline; U.S. threatens to walk away

By Louis Charbonneau, John Irish and Parisa Hafezi | March 31, 2015

LAUSANNE, Switzerland (Reuters) – Six world powers and Iran negotiated past a March 31 deadline into the wee hours of Wednesday, struggling to conclude an outline accord on Tehran’s nuclear program in the face of a U.S. threat to abandon the talks.

So after all the news media’s hysteria for the last few weeks, the deadline passed with a whimper instead of a bang. In fact, nobody in the media seems to have noticed that Obama just crossed another ‘red line.’ After all, the only reason there was a March 31st deadline was because Obama said the negotiations with Iran would not continue without a framework agreement by March 31st.

Indiana To Clarify Its RRFA Law To Placate Hysterics

From the Washington Post:

Ind. to ‘clarify’ new law decried as anti-gay

By Sandhya Somashekhar and Mark Berman | March 30, 2015

Republican lawmakers in Indiana promised Monday to amend a religious liberties bill that critics have labeled as anti-gay, bowing to protests that have rapidly spread to several other states considering similar measures. Indiana House Speaker Brian Bosma (R) said the legislature would act as soon as this week to “clarify” the state’s new Religious Freedom Restoration Act, which grants individuals and businesses legal grounds to defend themselves against claims of discrimination.

The fix, Bosma said, would make clear that the law does not allow people to discriminate against gays, as critics contend. Opponents of the measure say the fix suggested by Bosma and other Republicans is vague and probably insufficient…

Naturally.
