President Barack Obama says some people "really dislike me" because they don't like the idea of a black man occupying the Oval Office. But, he admits, that's not the whole story. "Now, the flip side of it is there are some black folks and maybe some white folks who really like me and give me the benefit of the doubt precisely because I’m a black president," Obama told The New Yorker in an interview published Sunday. Obama's election in 2008 was heralded by some as ending the racial divide in the United States, but the country has become even more divided during his presidency. Though he won re-election in 2012, his margin of white support was the worst of any presidential victor in U.S. history, The New Yorker noted.

Gov. Cuomo is under attack from Donald Trump, Rob Astorino and other leading Republicans for his jaw-dropping claim that conservatives who oppose abortion and gay rights and favor traditional gun ownership “have no place in the state of New York.’’ Trump, who says he’ll decide about entering the governor’s race next month, called the comments “a terrible statement, an unfortunate statement.” “It’s hard to believe that he really believes that,’’ continued Trump, when reached for comment by The Post at his home in Palm Beach, Fla.

A supposed FBI investigation into the targeting of conservative groups by the IRS is nothing but a sham, claims a law firm representing many of those groups.
The FBI has announced it will not file criminal charges against IRS officials, insisting that investigators failed to find "political bias" or "enemy hunting" that violated the law. Instead, the IRS didn't understand its tax-exemption rules due to mismanagement. Meanwhile, the American Center for Law and Justice says its 41 clients, all targets of the IRS, are still waiting to be interviewed by FBI officials. The IRS scandal broke in May, 2013. ACLJ executive director Jordan Sekulow tells OneNewsNow: "How would you feel if you're one of our clients, to know that the FBI just reached out to you before the end of the year?" The tea party groups have yet to be interviewed, notes Sekulow, "and they've already came to a conclusion that there's really no reason to talk to you. There was no crime committed." In a January 14 story, The Wall Street Journal reported that attorney Cleta Mitchell is representing 10 organizations that claimed harassment dating back to 2010. Those groups have yet to be contacted by the FBI, too.

Planned Parenthood’s net revenue increased 5% to total of $1.21 billion in its organizational fiscal year ending on June 30, 2013, according to its new Annual Report 2012-2013, and about 45% of that revenue--$540.6 million--was provided by taxpayer-funded government health services grants. In the same report, Planned Parenthood said that in the year that ended on Sept. 30, 2012 it did 327,166 abortions. Clinics in Iowa, Arkansas, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Montana and New Hampshire also received $655,192 in grants from the Department of Health and Human Services to serve as Obamacare “navigators,” as CNSNews.com reported earlier. The 2012-2013 Planned Parenthood report states on its second page, “We are the most effective advocate in the country for policies that protect access to safe and legal abortion and advance women’s health, actively lobbying in every state legislature ….” Planned Parenthood’s affiliates spent $26 million on public policy this past year, while the national office spent $31.3 million on building “advocacy capacity.” Planned Parenthood lobbied heavily for the Affordable Care Act’s mandatory contraception coverage, and the ACA, or Obamacare, is celebrated throughout the annual report as “a historic advance for women’s health.” (See Planned Parenthood 2012-13.pdf)
President of the United States Barack Obama and President of Planned Parenthood Cecile Richards (AP Photo)“Planned Parenthood is “making sure [the Act’s] promise is realized in people’s lives. We are investing in technology to reach a whole new generation, both with health care and opportunities for activism,” the letter from Planned Parenthood’s Chair Alexis McGill Johnson and President Cecile Richards states. The organization’s affiliates spent $14.8 million on engaging communities, and Planned Parenthood’s national office spent $3.2 million to “refresh our brand.” Part of that brand “refresh” included working with major television programs and media outlets “such as Girls and Cosmopolitan to promote our brand and cover our issues,” the report states. (See Planned Parenthood 2012-13.pdf) As part of the annual report’s “10 History-Making Moments,” it celebrates the NBC series Parenthood depicting “the first abortion on a major network entertainment program in years.” Other history-making moments the organization highlighted include the “largest gender gap ever recorded” in “the presidential election and in key state elections,” the ACA’s contraception mandate, Wendy Davis’ filibuster in Texas (in support of late-term abortion), and California passing a law that allows non-physicians to provide abortion services. - See more at: http://www.cnsnews.com/news/article/barbara-boland/planned-parenthood-got-5406-million-government-grants-fy-2013#sthash.5OCIHumc.dpuf
