Amanda Terkel wrote a story for the Huffington Post claiming that the daughter of the lesbian mayor of Houston, Annise Parker, was denied  a driver’s license because she has two moms. However, this was subsequently shown to be false according to a Huffington Post update.

Parker has recently become more well known nationally for subpoenaing sermons related to homosexuality or the equal rights ordinance passed by the city.

The Huffington Post shared the following tweet from Annise Parker:

Another tweet by Parker followed:

The claims by the mayor were shown to be false according to this Huffington Post update:

UPDATE: 5:15 p.m. — DPS Press Secretary Tom Vinger took issue with Parker’s recollection of events, writing in a statement, “All individuals applying for their first Texas driver license must provide a variety of documents to prove their identity, Social Security Number, U.S. citizenship or lawful presence status, and Texas residency. In this case, the adult applicant did not initially present sufficient documentation to prove residency. Once she provided the required documentation, she was able to complete the transaction. There is no indication that any delay in the process was related to same-sex marriage.

Mayor Parker did not respond to several requests for comment, as reported by the Los Angeles Times.

This Liberal Reporter Just Showed His Ignorance And Got Absolutely Destroyed For It

Needless to say, those aren’t.

The left is so focused on the “militarization” of the Ferguson police that they are now grasping at straws.

But, as we well know, once stupidity reaches the internet, you can be sure it is going to spread like wildfire. Sure enough, it did–and launched a clever hashtag: #CanAnyoneConfirm.

Raunch: Huffington Post Says Friends Should Have Casual, Meaningless Sex

I don’t know whether to laugh, throw up, or both. A reader tipped me to this Huffington Post article by D.A. Wolf headlined: “5 Benefits Of Having a Friend With Benefits.” In case you’re not hip to liberal-speak, “friends with benefits” refers to the “progressive” idea that it’s really cool for friends to use each other for casual, meaningless sex.

What could possibly go wrong?

Writes Wolf:

“Some of us believe that friends with benefits can be mutually enjoyable and perfectly suited to our needs — not just when we’re very young, and not as a matter of explicitly avoiding commitment.

“In fact, it seems to me that friends with benefits gets a bad rap, as if women aren’t supposed to feel desire (in general) or lust (in particular) — especially once they become mothers, or if they’re ‘of a certain age.’”

Yes, nothing says “I respect you” like using your “friend’s” body to sexually gratify yourself.

Wolf then asks the following:

“When we’re putting the pieces back together after a divorce, isn’t discovery of our newly single sexual self part of the process? Don’t we want to enjoy the flirtation, the fantasy, the sensation and the sense of well-being that comes from sexual foreplay and sex itself? Who doesn’t love the jolt of energy, the boost to mood, the sparkle of feeling fully alive that comes from great sex?

“And don’t we feel reassured when we re-engage with our sexual selves after divorce or a tough breakup?”

Yes, again, nothing gives a woman a “sense of well-being” like being exploited for casual sex by some jerk who calls himself her friend, yet uses her like a piece of meat. Giving away the milk for free? Now that’ll earn you some respect. The fellas will be lining up around the corner with marriage proposals. But they’ll have to wait on all your “friends” to get done “benefiting” first.

Ms. Wolf, a veritable fount of “progressive” wisdom, blah-blahs on:

“In my opinion, especially as a mother, if you’re looking for sex but not in a position to pursue something more, whatever exploration you undertake, you owe it to your kids (and of course yourself) to do it safely.”

How thoughtful. Parent of the year material. Hear that, kids? Sure, mommy’s a trollop – and sure, she’s hooking up with all the guys at the office, but she’s “doing it safely.”

Aren’t we proud of mommy?

Wolf drones on:

“One of the advantages of a friend with benefits is freedom from overly romantic attachments. … So why not experiment with your special friend, if the thought appeals to you?”

Exactly! Why not? For that matter, why short-change yourself? Why go gratis? You’re basically there anyway. Fifty bucks a pop would sure help with those Botox injections.

Wolf concludes:

“I admit that I was a fan of the friends with benefits model from an early age. I love being in love, but that sort of attachment doesn’t come around every day. Friends with benefits — in my life — was just right, several times.”

Really? Only several times? Mommy has lots of “special friends,” doesn’t she? Your children must be so proud. “Hey, everybody! Look what my mommy wrote in the Huffington Post!”

And the great news? Once the feds figure out how to make this whole Obamacare thingy work, you’ll get all the herpes meds you can swallow – for free!

Now that is a “benefit” you can share with your friends.

Minister Celebrates “Morally Good” Abortions

While America’s leftward societal slide has ushered in a disturbing acceptance of abortion, certain segments of the population continue to firmly stand up for the unborn. Among these pro-life activists are millions whose belief in the sanctity of life is guided by their faith in God.

Unfortunately, our culture of death has even permeated throughout some Christian denominations. A recent example of this immoral trend is found in an opinion article published in the Huffington Post.

Written by Donna Schaper, a United Church of Christ minister, the article insinuates that expectant mothers can actually perform the will of God by killing their unborn children. Somehow, she is able to reconcile this barbaric belief with the Holy Bible’s imperative against murder.

“What is it about women that the religious right can’t tolerate?” she wrote, purposefully obfuscating the conservative argument against abortion. If men were able to bear children, those with a faith-based aversion to the murderous act would be just as vehemently opposed to it.

Schaper contended that abortion “can be a highly moral choice for a woman,” which should be enough to prompt any so-called church to send her packing. Unfortunately, leftist propaganda has replaced scriptural guidance in too many American houses of worship.

The author continued by trashing Hobby Lobby, a Christian-owned retail chain that has been at the forefront of ObamaCare’s employer mandate requiring abortion coverage in approved healthcare plans.

“It is sad as well to see the constant struggle – now initiated by a toy and hobby company – about women being choice making human beings,” she wrote. It appears that our nation has entered a bizarre realm in which the business world offers greater moral guidance than those tasked with spreading God’s word.

Of course, the vast majority of Christian leaders are righteously opposed to the abhorrent practice of abortion. Still, to the casual observer, arguments made by the likes of Schaper can form a false impression of what it means to follow Christ.

She claimed women can “have morally good abortions because we are human beings, with God-given rights to human agency, just like men.” Her gender warfare rhetoric notwithstanding, this baseless assertion alleges that God actually approves of the destruction of babies formed in His image. Castigating those who advocate “[m]andatory childbearing,” Schaper said that proponents of life are responsible for making “the woman a hostage to the will of others….”

Those called into ministry must be held uniquely accountable for their presentation of God’s instruction. As Schafer and her ilk continue to bastardize the Holy Bible with their own radical views on abortion, they will not only face the indignation of true believers, but will face judgment for their actions upon leaving this world.

Video: New Video Offers A Glimpse Inside Federal Agency’s Lavish Las Vegas Conference

(CNN) — Congressional investigators are accusing the General Services Administration of violating its employee gift limit with rewards of iPods, digital cameras and other electronics, just as a video emerged of a lavish conference that shows employees drinking and making jokes about wasteful spending.

The video, first obtained by The Huffington Post on Friday, offered a glimpse inside the agency’s $820,000 conference in Las Vegas. An administration official confirmed the authenticity of the video and provided a copy to CNN.

Reports of the lavish conference have prompted taxpayer outrage, embarrassed the administration and put a spotlight on the wasteful spending by the agency that acts as a real estate agency for the federal government.

“These videos reinforce once again the complete lack of judgment exhibited during the 2010 Western Regions Conference,” said Greg Mecher, a GSA spokesman. “Our agency continues to be appalled by this indefensible behavior, and we are taking every step possible to ensure that nothing like this ever happens again.”

The latest news comes just days after the Office of the Inspector General documented massive overspending by the GSA. The fallout from the report’s revelations has sparked a congressional investigation and seen the GSA chief step down, two other employees fired and a number of others suspended.
