And instead of the same-old outdated models in Washington, DC, we’re working on solutions that empower you to achieve a better life.

Obama: Medicare and Medicaid ‘Aren’t In Crisis’

Screenshot President Obama argued “these programs aren’t in crisis” while discussing Medicare and Medicaid during his Weekly Address on Saturday. Transcript as Follows: “Hi, everybody. This week, there was a big birthday you might have missed. Medicare and Medicaid turned 50 years old. And that’s something worth celebrating. If one of the best measures of a country is how it treats its more vulnerable citizens — seniors, the poor, the sick — then America has a lot to be proud of. Think about it. Before Social Security, too many seniors lived in poverty. Before Medicare, only half had some form of health insurance. Before Medicaid, parents often had no help covering the cost of care for a child with a disability. But as Americans, we declared that our citizens deserve a basic measure of security and dignity. And today, the poverty rate for seniors is less than half of what it

Britain ‘Facing Food Shortages’ Thanks to Calais Migrant Crisis

(Peter Macdiarmid/Getty Images) Britain could face food shortages this summer thanks to the growing migrant crisis in Calais, hauliers have warned. Freight trucks have already faced severe delays, with queues now five miles longer than the Channel Tunnel itself, as they try to cross into Europe. Now haulage firms say the delays could cause shortages of key supplies, thus causing food prices to shoot up. The Daily Mail reports that some truck drivers have been stuck in their cabs for days, requiring emergency food and water supplies as well as chemical toilets. At its peak, the queue reached 36 miles and barely moved 500 yards in two days. It is now expected to reduce in length over the weekend, but many drivers will still be stranded for the next few days. Jack Semple, director of policy at the Road Haulage Association, said: “It is really disrupting supplies. You can no longer guarantee supplies

Minister Intervenes to Give Chinese Dissident Ai Weiwei Full UK Visa

Dissident Chinese artist Ai Weiwei leaves the airport in Munich Home Secretary Theresa May has intervened to reverse a decision by her officials and grant dissident Chinese artist and free speech advocate Ai Weiwei a full six-month visa to enter Britain, her government department said on Friday. On Thursday the artist, whose passport was returned by Chinese authorities last week four years after it was confiscated, said Britain had granted him only a short-stay visa. He said this was because immigration officials said he had not declared a “criminal conviction”. Ai, who was detained for 81 days and had his passport confiscated four years ago, has never been charged nor convicted of a crime. “The Home Secretary was not consulted over the decision to grant Mr Ai a one-month visa. She has reviewed the case and has now instructed Home Office officials to issue a full six-month visa,” a Home Office (interior ministry) spokeswoman said. “We have written to Mr

Free Pornography for Norwegian Prisoners May be Under Threat

Twitter/@Gazetteseries Norwegian prisoners have a constitutional right to unlimited porn to watch in their cells – but now the police union is calling for curbs. Claiming that free access to pornography can harm the “peace, order and security” of the prison environment, the Norwegian Directorate for Correctional Services says their officers can feel awkward entering a cell if an inmate is in the middle of enjoying him or herself, reports TheLocal.no. They claim searching cells for contraband can also become embarrassing if the cell is full of porn, so they at least want to put in place some limits on how much porn each inmate is allowed to keep at once. The directorate cites the popularity of ‘rape fantasy’ porn which depicts prison guards being pinned down and raped by their wards as a particular area for concern. Prison guard union spokesman Knut Are Svenkerud said: “We also know that some inmates have had
