  • Former First Lady and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton spoke to a large crowd at the University at Buffalo Wednesday night, as part of the university’s Distinguished Speaker Series, and was heckled. “Benghazi, you let them die,” the heckler shouted. “We have to be willing to come together as citizens to focus on the kind of future we want, which doesn’t include yelling. It includes sitting down and talking with one another,” Clinton said in response to the heckler to huge applause from the audience. Source: RealClearPolitics…


  • Senator Joe Manchin on Wednesday said he plans to back Republican legislation that would delay Obamacare’s individual mandate to have insurance. The West Virginia Democrat is set to announce during Wednesday night’s “The O’Reilly Factor” that he’s joining forces with Senator Johnny Isakson (R-Ga.) on legislation that would delay the penalty by a year.

  • The IRS said this week it is delaying the start of the tax filing season, leading Republicans to argue that the agency is putting its focus on implementing Obamacare at the expense of helping average taxpayers. The IRS blamed the government shutdown, saying that when it furloughed 90 percent of its employees it lost too many work days to begin processing returns on time in January.

  • A change to the Marine Corps’ uniform hats could take the hard-nosed Leathernecks from the Halls of Montezuma to the shops of Christopher Street. Thanks to a plan by President Obama to create a “unisex” look for the Corps, officials are on the verge of swapping out the Marines’ iconic caps with a new hat that some have derided as so “girly” that they would make the French blush. “We don’t even have enough funding to buy bullets, and the DoD is pushing to spend $8 million on covers that look like women’s hats!” one senior Marine source fumed to The Post. “The Marines deserve better. It makes them look ridiculous.” Source: New York Post…


  • University students in America have been told not to wear “offensive” Halloween costumes including cowboys, indians and anything involving a sombrero. Students at the University of Colorado Boulder have also been told to avoid “white trash” costumes and anything that portrays a particular culture as “over-sexualized” – which the university says includes dressing up as a geisha or a “squaw” (indigenous woman). They are also asked not to host parties with offensive themes including those with “ghetto” or “hillbilly” themes or those associated with “crime or sex work.” Source: The Telegraph…
