Gay Athletes Could Be Prosecuted at 2014 Winter Olympics

ABC News: “In Russia it is now illegal to even speak about homosexuality around minors, much less openly display gay pride. Technically the ban is against “propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations” around minors, but the implication for openly gay individuals is clear. Public displays of affection by gays, including holding hands or displaying symbols like a rainbow flag, are now banned. Violators face steep fines and jail time; foreigners face similar penalties plus deportation.

Vitaly Milonov, who sponsored legislation in St. Petersburg last year, reportedly said, “If a law has been approved by the federal legislature and signed by the president, then the government has no right to suspend it. It doesn’t have the authority,” he reportedly said, stressing that he has not heard anything different from Russian officials.”

Meanwhile, back in the good old USSA we have a different way of dealing with laws and regulations that are not in compliance with the wishes of high government officials. In America, our president has the power to simply ignore those laws he dislikes or with which he disagrees.

Two examples come quickly to mind: (there are many, many others)

1) Obamacare legislation requires all large companies to provide health insurance by January 2014. President Obama decided he didn’t like this starting date and moved it to January 2015.

2) Eric Holder released a statement in 2011 stating, “The President has also concluded that Section 3 of DOMA, as applied to legally married same-sex couples, fails to meet that standard and is therefore unconstitutional. Given that conclusion, the President has instructed the Department not to defend the statute in such cases.”

It would seem that Russian President Putin has some things to learn from our Dear Leader.

Posted on 31 July 2013

The bad news just keeps on coming for the openly left-wing liberal MSNBC channel, which is now in fourth place behind Fox News Channel, CNN and HLN after losing 12 percent of its viewers from a year ago. CNN, meanwhile, had another strong month.

Whether it’s because of lineup adjustments made by CNN or because Obama-supporting Democrats are tuning out MSNBC, the fact remains that Cable News Network saw double-digit growth in both total day and prime-time ratings in July when compared to the same month in 2012.
