Palin Previews Tonight's CPAC Speech
Ahead of her closing address at the Conservative Political Action Conference Saturday, Sarah Palin went on Fox News with Greta Van Susteren to preview what she plans to say to the conservative crowd. She promised an “optimistic” message that looks to this year’s midterm elections as a positive opportunity for the right. Palin argued that Obamacare does not need to be “fixed” but should be fully repealed, saying, “it needs to be killed now.” She criticized the majority of Republicans for failing to defund the law. “They balked,” she said, citing only Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and a handful of others who “stood strong on what they had at their fingertips to defund.” Later, Palin weighed in the media’s reluctance to give her credit for anticipating Vladimir Putin’s move into Ukraine. Despite her current media tour, she said there will be “no victory lap” because “you don’t interrupt someone when they are in the process of destroying their own credibility.”

Lyin' Ryan Busted Lyin' At CPAC
Rep. Paul Ryan, speaking yesterday at CPAC.
Calling Ryan's claim "a story too good to check," the Washington Post reveals that the whole thing is a big ole lie that was probably lifted from the 2011 book, The Invisible Thread, a suspicion first voiced by Wonkette. The Post then gives Ryan "Four Pinocchios" - its lyingest rating for liars. Ryan has apologized in a Facebook post.
Today at CPAC, I shared a story I heard from Eloise Anderson, the secretary for children and families for the state of Wisconsin. She mentioned it in her testimony for a House Budget Committee hearing last year. I have just learned that Secretary Anderson misspoke, and that the story she told was improperly sourced. I regret failing to verify the original source of the story, but I appreciate her taking the time to share her insights.Of course the lie already has legs on wingnut sites like the National Review.
PUERTO RICO: Anti-Gay GOP Pol Comes Out Three Years After Grindr Scandal
the above post from three years ago. Well, that douchebag has finally come out after having led the unsuccessful campaign to place a ban on same-sex marriage into the Puerto Rican constitution. Video via Andres Duque at Blabbeando:
RELATED: According to a 2011 JMG source, Arango not only supported that failed constitutional ban, he once mocked another legislator by squeezing a rubber duck at him on the Senate floor. In Puerto Rico, the Spanish word for duck means "queer" or "faggot." In 2009, Arango defended an attempt to ban gay adoption.
INDIANA: Marriage Lawsuit Filed
to the list.
Four couples from southern Indiana are asking a federal judge to force the state to recognize same-sex marriages from other states and issue marriage licenses to gay couples. The couples are suing the state of Indiana in a lawsuit filed Friday in federal court in New Albany that seeks to overturn an Indiana law that declares same-sex marriages void, even if another state recognizes the union. The plaintiffs and their attorneys met with reporters Friday afternoon in Louisville, Ky., and said the recent debate over a proposed constitutional amendment that would ban same-sex marriage in Indiana spurred their suit.That leaves eight states without an active marriage lawsuit: Alaska, Georgia, Kansas, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, and South Dakota.
UPDATE: More about the lawsuit.
Louisville law firm Clay Daniel Walton & Adams announced the lawsuit today at its offices. The lawsuit was filed in Southern District of Indiana, which has a courthouse in New Albany. The couples are from Clark and Floyd counties and it's the only such federal case involving Indiana. Attorney Daniel Canon said during a media conference Friday that Indiana is now under leadership that says his clients do not deserve the same rights, responsibilities and privileges provided to opposite-sex couples, simple because they are in a same-sex relationships. “All of these couples that we represent are like any other opposite-sex couples in the state of Indiana,” he said. “They live as married couples. They raise their kids together. They work and go to church in Indiana. They pay their taxes in the state of Indiana.”

How Seattle Pastor Mark Driscoll Bought His Way Onto The NYT Bestsellers List
Seattle’s Mars Hill Church paid a California-based marketing company at least $210,000 in 2011 and 2012 to ensure that Real Marriage, a book written by Mark Driscoll, the church’s founding pastor, and his wife Grace, made the New York Times best-seller list. According to a document obtained by WORLD, ResultSource Inc. (RSI) contracted with Mars Hill “to conduct a bestseller campaign for your book, Real Marriage on the week of January 2, 2012. The bestseller campaign is intended to place Real Marriage on The New York Times bestseller list for the Advice How-To list.” The marketing company also promised to help place Real Marriage on the Wall Street Journal Business, USA Today Money, BN.com (Barnes & Noble), and Amazon.com best-seller lists.More from Warren Throckmorton, who has the contract:
Note that RSI uses “over a thousand different payment types” to evade detection. Somehow RSI knows that the NYT bestseller list “requires a minimum of 90 geographically disperse (sic) addresses.” Apparently, the publisher must be on board with this arrangement as well since the contract requires the publisher to supply the proper number of books. I have asked Harper Collins Christian for comment but they have not replied as yet. The names and addresses are apparently very important in making sure that these purchases escape detection by those who compile the best seller lists.Mars Hill defends its cheating this way: "We want to tell lots of people about Jesus by every means available."
PREVIOUSLY ON JMG: In Januaray, Driscoll declared that all non-Christians are going to hell. Last November, Driscoll was busted for plagiarizing other pastors in his latest book in a scandal that was heavily covered on Christian websites. In 2011 Driscoll declared that male masturbation is a form of homosexuality because it is sex with a man.

BRITAIN: Queen Elizabeth Congratulates Gay Charity On Its 40th Anniversary
Queen Elizabeth II has praised a gay charity, in what is believed to be her first ever comment about the LGBTI community. In her 62-year reign of the UK and the Commonwealth, she has never once visited or become a patron of a charity for gay rights. And even in reforming laws for the community, such as when homosexuality was decriminalized or same-sex marriage in England and Wales passed into law, the words ‘gay’, ‘lesbian’, ‘bisexual’, and ‘transgender’ have never been reported as crossing the lips of the reigning monarch. But in a first, the Queen has praised the London Lesbian and Gay Switchboard on its 40th birthday. She said: ‘Best wishes and congratulations to all concerned on this most special anniversary.’Prime Minister David Cameron and London Mayor Boris Johnson also congratulated the charity.

WASHINGTON: Fired Catholic School Vice President Mark Zmuda To File Lawsuit
file a lawsuit today.
Mark Zmuda alleges, in his filing, that the decision to terminate his employment at the Sammamish prep school was made by Catholic Archbishop J. Peter Sartain. The school acknowledges that Eastside Catholic president Sr. Mary Tracy discussed the case with Sartain. “Our attorneys will immediately file a motion to dismiss the compaint,” Tom Padilla and Brad Bastion, acting chairs of the Eastside Catholic board, said in a letter to the school community. The Catholic Church opposes marriage equality and has a provision in educators’ contracts that provides for adherence to church teachings. According to filings from both sides in the case, Eastside Catholic knew in January of 2013 that Zmuda was gay.According to Zmuda, the school told him that he could keep his job by getting a divorce. Which is also against Catholic teachings. His firing resulted in an outpouring of support from the school's students.
MICHIGAN: Marriage Lawsuit "Expert Witness" Says Gays Are Going To Hell
told the court that gays are going to hell.
"Is it accurate that you believe the consequence of engaging in homosexual acts is a separation from God and eternal damnation?” Mogill asked the state’s expert, then added, “in other words, they’re going to hell?” “Without repentance, yes,” answered the expert, Canadian economist Douglas Allen, the last witness to testify on behalf of the state in a trial that could make Michigan the 18th state to legalize gay marriage. A spokeswoman for Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette, who is defending the voters’ decision in 2004 to define marriage as being between one man and one woman, said Allen’s religious beliefs do not taint his testimony. “The trial ended on Dr. Allen’s comment that the science on this remains unsettled,” said Joy Yearout. “He was very clear that his personal beliefs have no impact on his research or the data it produces.”I wrote about Allen last November.
Another familiar name on Michigan's list of defense witnesses is Professor Douglas Allen, of Canada's Simon Fraser University. Allen sits on the board of directors of NOM's hate-satellite, the Ruth Institute. Allen is a supporter of Mark Regnerus and claims to have analyzed a 2000 census and come to the conclusion that "children being raised by same-sex couples are 35% less likely to make normal progress through school."Last month the SPLC added the Ruth Institute to its list of hate groups. Closing arguments in the Michigan case will take place today. The judge is not expected to rule immediately.
