Obama Doubles Down On Fraud Known As Obamacare: "We're Never Going Back..."

Anyone who subscribes to the community organizing wing of the Obama Regime, OFA, got the following e-mail today, "We're Never Going Back and it's Thanks To You."

Well, just like his false promises when selling this fraud known as Obamacare, everything that Richard Milhous Obama writes in this e-mail is a bunch of bull dung.

How many of you are going into the new year with a different health care plan than the one you had?  I learned before Christmas that not only was the plan I had for the last six years going away, it was being replaced with one that had higher deductibles, slightly higher co-pays, and I was going to lose more out of my paycheck because of it.

Affordable healthcare my butt!

Bernie Madoff could only wish his last name was Obama and he was President, so he could have gotten away with the fraud pulled on the American public known as the Affordable Care Act.

A&E Surrenders: Reinstates Phil Robertson Back To "Duck Dynasty" Cast

Breaking news (The Federalist Papers), the suspension by A&E of Phil Robertson from the reality TV show "Duck Dynasty" has ended.

An A&E statement to The Hollywood Reporter read:

As a global media content company, A+E Networks’ core values are centered around creativity, inclusion and mutual respect. We believe it is a privilege for our brands to be invited into people’s home and we operate with a strong sense of integrity and deep commitment to these principals.
That is why we reacted so quickly and strongly to a recent interview with Phil Robertson. While Phil’s comments made in the interview reflect his personal views based on his own beliefs, and his own personal journey, he and his family have publicly stated they regret the “coarse language” he used and the mis-interpretation of his core beliefs based only on the article. He also made it clear he would “never incite or encourage hate.” We at A+E Networks expressed our disappointment with his statements in the article, and reiterate that they are not views we hold.
But Duck Dynasty is not a show about one man’s views. It resonates with a large audience because it is a show about family… a family that America has come to love. As you might have seen in many episodes, they come together to reflect and pray for unity, tolerance and forgiveness. These are three values that we at A+E Networks also feel strongly about.
So after discussions with the Robertson family, as well as consulting with numerous advocacy groups, A&E has decided to resume filming Duck Dynasty later this spring with the entire Robertson family.
We will also use this moment to launch a national public service campaign (PSA) promoting unity, tolerance and acceptance among all people, a message that supports our core values as a company, and the values found in Duck Dynasty. These PSAs will air across our entire portfolio.
For all the talk of "tolerance," no one has brought up that it, like everything else in life, is a two-way street.

One defeat for the political correctness bullies!

Why Did GOP Issue A Statement Honoring A "Holiday" Invented By A Racist, Ex-Con, Woman Torturer?

No wonder they call the GOP "The Stupid Party," because someone thought it would be a good idea for Rinse Preebus and the GOP to show "outreach" to African-Americans by issuing a message celebrating the "holiday" called Kwanzaa (The Root, via Free Republic).
If there was ever any doubt as to the voter power welded by African-Americans in upcoming elections, the latest tweet from the GOP should cast away all doubt.

On Thursday the GOP tweeted, "Happy Kwanzaa" wishes to all those who celebrate the holiday.

"Happy Kwanzaa! Wishing those celebrating a joyous time with loved ones and a time of meaningful reflection ahead of the New Year," the tweet read.

Most who commented on the tweet saw this as another flat attempt to reach out to black voters as primary season has officially begun.

 "I want to extend my best wishes to all who are celebrating Kwanzaa," said Chairman Priebus. "For families coming together to mark the occasion, I hope it is a joyous time of celebration with loved ones–and a time of meaningful reflection ahead of the New Year."

 "From December 26 through January 1, many families will take time to celebrate African culture and history. Kwanzaa is a wonderful opportunity for all of us to honor the importance of family and community, and it reminds us of the great diversity in America. Happy Kwanzaa!" said Co-Chairman Day.

According to a post on, "as of the 2010 population, there are roughly 39 million Black Americans living in the United States, yet its estimated that only half a million to two million or just 1%-5% of Black Americans even celebrate Kwanzaa."
What a big #fail by the GOP, but then after the way the party's "leaders" attack the Tea Party and are willing to surrender their principcles. Nothing suprises me anymore. But they're not alone, as Richard Milhous Obama and former President George W. Bush have issued statements in the past falling for ths "holiday."

But how many people are aware of the origins of this Kwanzaa?

Kwanzaa is not an "African" holiday, but a made-up holiday started in Los Angeles in 1966 by some black nationalist who is now a college professor named Ron Karenga. Karenga once told the Washington ComPost the following about his "holiday" (Discover the Networks):
"People think it's African, but it's not...I came up with Kwanzaa because black people in this country wouldn't celebrate it if they knew it was American. Also, I put it around Christmas because I knew that's when a lot of bloods would be partying."

What you won't probably hear about Karenga was that he was a member of a terrorist group called US (United Slaves) that was involved in a shooting with rival Black Panthers in which two of the panthers were killed. In 1971, Karenga was sentenced to one to ten years in prison for felonious assault. According to an LA Times article from 1971, quoted in Wikipedia.
"Deborah Jones, who once was given the Swahili title of an African queen, said she and Gail Davis were whipped with an electrical cord and beaten with a karate baton after being ordered to remove their clothes. She testified that a hot soldering iron was placed in Miss Davis' mouth and placed against Miss Davis' face and that one of her own big toes was tightened in a vise. Karenga, head of US, also put detergent and running hoses in their mouths, she said. They also were hit on the heads with toasters."

Three years later, the seven principles of Kwanzaa became the seven principles of the Bay Area leftist terrorist group called the Symbionese Liberation Army (SLA). Who were they?The SLA killed a black Oakland, CA school superintendent, kidnapped newspaper heiress Patricia Hearst, converted her by brainwashing, robbed banks, were involved in bombings and one killing during a Sacramento bank robbery. This Leftist terrorist group adopted Kwanzaa's seven principles, Umoja (Unity), Kujichagulia (self-determination), Ujima (collective work and responsibility), Ujamaa (cooperative economics), Nia (purpose), Kuumba (creativity), and Imani (faith) into its symbol of a seven-headed cobra.

SLA General Field Marshall Cinque Says "Happy Kwanzaa!"

In 2004, Les Kinsolving wrote of a debate he had with Karenga back in the 1960s.

While I was an Episcopal parish priest in Northern California in the 1960s, I was challenged to debate Malcolm X – which I accepted.

When I arrived at an all-black audience in West Oakland (home of the Black Panthers), I discovered that a substitute had been made for Malcolm.

Mr. Karenga was the most foul-smelling person I had ever sat next to – which, I strongly suspect, was part of his debating technique.

Karenga's argumentation was equally foul – an exceptionally hostile recitation of extremist black-power claims, which I found to be utterly preposterous. And I said so, and explained why.

That led to ominous sounds from this all-black audience – that Karenga began to manipulate.

Suddenly, there came a strong vocal intervention – by the Rev. Booker T. Anderson, pastor of the Easter Hill United Methodist Church, in nearby Richmond, Calif.

Booker was my fellow participant in the California delegation on the final day of the Selma March into Montgomery, Ala. And he told this angry crowd that I had "not only talked-the-talk, but walked-the-walk" with him.

That very probably saved me from either serious or fatal injury.

Discover the Networks also notes that Karenga made excuses for the terrorist attacks of 9/11, and claimed capitalism was the cause of the attacks.

Blogger La Shawn Barber noted that Karenga once said the following about Christianity:
Belief in spooks who threaten us if we don’t worship them and demand we turn over our destiny and daily lives must be categorized as spookism and condemned.”
For two other perspectives on this "holiday," see "Kwanzaa is for Pagans" by La Shawn Barber and "Kwanzaa — Racist Holiday from Hell" by The Rev. Jessie Lee Peterson of B.O.N.D.

GLAAD's Hypocrisy: Silent On MSNBC Contributor Using Term "Butt Buddy," Alec Baldwin's Anti-Gay Slurs

What has everyone been talking about the last few days?

Phil Robertson, Duck Dynasty and A&E.  It was the big story that immediately took off any outrage oof far-left John Podesta comparing the GOP opponents of Obama's agenda members of the Jonestown cult, just as people were digging into the far-Left, Democrat background of the Jonestown cult leader.

I was watching Twitter blow up Wednesday night over the network's suspension of Robertson for talking about his Christian faith, in which the topic of homosexuality came up. Even though Robertson was giving an opinion, based on his faith, he came under attack by GLAAD, part of the radical homosexual gaystapo, who will attack any alleged outburst of "homophobia."

Except when it's done by liberals.

I don't recall GLAAD expressing outrage at uber-liberal cable network MSNBC in July 2011 when MSNBC contributor Jimmy Williams said the following:
One person is controlling the agenda of the United States of America right now and his name is Grover Norquist.

Grover Norquist was Newt Gingrich's butt buddy. He was Jack Abramoff's close friend and laundered money from Native Americans. He charged people $25,000 a pop to go to a Bush White House signing ceremony. He is a petty criminal. And he's made just about every single member of the House of Representatives on the Republican, not the Tea Party, the Republican side, and almost all Republican senators sign a pledge saying that they will never ever for the rest of their lives raise taxes.

I need to know, first of all, do we have on the Left a Grover Norquist? And if we don't, why not?

When former MSNBC host Alec Baldwin sent tweets with anti-gay messages to a reporter, GLAAD defended the liberal hothead (TMZ).
Alec Baldwin just got a "Get Out of Homophobia Jail Free" card from the people at GLAAD ... because they don't have the balls to go after a self-proclaimed Hollywood liberal.

After Baldwin essentially called for the gay-bashing of a Daily Mail reporter ... the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation -- the same org. that's CRUSHED people for making far less harmful and threatening statements -- asked critics to back off Baldwin.

"Alec Baldwin is making it clear [to GLAAD] that the intent behind his tweets does not excuse his language, especially at a time when there were 11 incidents of violence against gay men in New York City just last month. As we all work to end such senseless acts of violence, allies like Baldwin are right to use these moments to reinforce support for the community and LGBT equality."

But the statement continues ... and might reveal the REAL reason they're letting Alec off easy:

"Alec Baldwin has worked with several organizations and added his voice to a campaign by Fight Back NY to encourage the State Senate to pass marriage equality with out actor Jesse Tyler Ferguson. He also had a guest role on Will & Grace and played a gay character in the 2006 Off-Broadway revival of 'Entertaining Mr. Sloane.'"

It's almost like the org. is afraid if they bash Baldwin, he'll STOP doing pro-gay projects.
Baldwin and MSNBC ended their relationship last month after he was caught on film calling a photographer a "c*cksucking f@g," much worse than anything Phil Robertson ever said.

Gateway Pundit also pointed out how "Reverend" Al Sharpton, who is a current MSNBC host, once called a guest on the Morton Downey Jr. show "punk f@ggot."

Sharpton also gave a speech in 1994 where he called Greeks "homos."

White folks was [sic] in caves while we were building empires…. We taught philosophy and astrology and mathematics before Socrates and those Greek homos ever got around to it.
But if you're a liberal, you get a pass. If you're a Bible-believing Christian, you're under fire.

Camille Paglia, a noted feminist who also happens to be gay, is siding with Robertson and called the attacks on him "fascist."
“I speak with authority here, because I was openly gay before the ‘Stonewall rebellion,’ when it cost you something to be so. And I personally feel as a libertarian that people have the right to free thought and free speech,” Paglia, a professor at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, said on Laura Ingraham’s radio show Thursday.

“In a democratic country, people have the right to be homophobic as well as they have the right to support homosexuality — as I one hundred percent do. If people are basing their views against gays on the Bible, again they have a right of religious freedom there,” she added.

“To express yourself in a magazine in an interview — this is the level of punitive PC, utterly fascist, utterly Stalinist, OK, that my liberal colleagues in the Democratic Party and on college campuses have supported and promoted over the last several decades,” Paglia said. “This is the whole legacy of free speech 1960’s that have been lost by my own party.”

...Paglia went on to point out that while she is an atheist she respects religion and has been frustrated by the intolerance of gay activists.

“I think that this intolerance by gay activists toward the full spectrum of human beliefs is a sign of immaturity, juvenility,” Paglia said. “This is not the mark of a true intellectual life. This is why there is no cultural life now in the U.S. Why nothing is of interest coming from the major media in terms of cultural criticism. Why the graduates of the Ivy League with their A, A, A+ grades are complete cultural illiterates, etc. is because they are not being educated in any way to give respect to opposing view points.”
There's more...Gateway Pundit writes this morning that Intolerant GLAAD Reeling From Biggest Backlash In Years.

If You're Going To Make Jonestown Comparisons, John Podesta, Meet David Conn, Who First Warned About Jim Jones

The Republican Party, who are basically waving the white-flag of surrender to Richard Milhous Obama, Harry Reid and liberal Democrats, are now the equivalent of the "Rev." Jim Jones' mass-murdering Jonestown cult, according to the George Soros-funded radical leftist John Podesta.

Today, Politico confirmed that governing-by-executive-fiat is exactly what Podesta has in mind. The only shocking part of the story is Podesta's justification for shredding the Constitution:
In effect, I was told, it represents the clearest sign to date of the administration’s interest in shifting the paradigm of Obama’s presidency through the forceful, unapologetic and occasionally provocative application of White House power. Podesta, whose official mandate includes enforcement of numerous executive orders on emissions and the environment, suggested as much when he spoke with me earlier this fall about Obama’s team. “They need to focus on executive action given that they are facing a second term against a cult worthy of Jonestown in charge of one of the houses of Congress,” he told me.
Really, John Podesta, do you want to go there?  Sure, you apologized, but you've opened a can of worms that you cannot put in, and for the sake of the nation, we cannot just turn our heads away from your claim.

Did you know, John Podesta, that Jim Jones was a radical Marxist-Leftist "community organizer" who was seen by Bay Area liberals as a new Messiah?  Liberal Democrats, like George Moscone and Harvey Milk, all sought his volunteers for electoral advantage. Milk wrote a letter to then President Jimmy Carter defending Jones,

and even wrote a handwritten note to the cult leader claiming his support for him was "written in stone."

California Governor Jerry "Moonbeams" Brown, then California Assemblyman Willie Brown, former first lady Rosalynn Carter and Walter Mondale rubbed shoulders with him. 

Radical "clergy" like Cecil Williams of Glide Memorial Church even gave Jones the Martin Luther King Jr. Humanitarian Award.

But when suspicions arose about Jones, and he fled the Bay Area to Guyana, it was too late, and too many of the Bay Area liberals continued to defend him.  Thus 900 Bay Area citizens were murdered, some willingly, by a Marxist madman whose fraud was aided and abetted by the San Francisco liberal political and media elite, who refused to look at the concerns of many who voiced warnings about weird goings-on with Jones.

Like a California man named David Conn, who heard things about Jones eight to nine years before Jones led his brainwashed supporters to the mass suicide/murder Guyana that also killed Congressman Leo Ryan.  Conn knew something about cults and saw something similar in a rising political star that he saw in Jim Jones.  He first wrote about it in 2008.

Who Lacks Intellectual Integrity While Stabbing Vets In The Back, John McCain?

This disaster budget by far-Left lunatic Patty "Osama Mama" Murray and Paul "The Sellout" Ryan looks like it's on its way to passing yesterday, thanks to the Vichy Republicans in the Senate who allowed the cloture vote to pass.

In usual form, the liberals favorite useful idiot, John McLame, attacked his party as lacking "intellectual integrity."

The way this jerk talks, I can't tell a difference between him and his ditzy daughter...except for two things.

Excuse me Johnny Boy, but if you want to look at someone who lacks intellectual integrity, go head to the mirror closest to you and take a look.

The former Vietnam War POW always been one who claims to look out for veterans stands by while his Democrat friends and RINO enablers cut the pension benefits of our veterans, those who do more to serve this nation in one day than most of these jerkoffs in Washington DC do their whole careers (Fox News Insider).
...The news upset military spouses, including Babette Maxwell. She’s part of a group holding a Twitter town hall tonight, asking the Senate to reject the cuts.

Maxwell’s husband is a Naval officer who plans to retire soon after two decades of service. Tonight on The Kelly File, Maxwell called the bipartisan budget agreement by Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA) “ridiculous.”

She said 600,000 military retirees will be impacted by this legislation. “[Rep. Ryan’s] not active duty nor is he a retiree. And for the average enlisted service member, talking about an $83,000 cut over the course of those working age years … that’s quite a bit of a per month deduction simply because [Congress] needs to go back and retroactively pay bills they couldn’t afford in the first place.”

President Obama previously asked Congress to grandfather in those already in the retiree system and active duty members if they made any changes to military benefits. Maxwell said, “We don’t have a union representing us. All we have is our faith in our government to honor the promises that they have made to those who have served.”

She pointed out that some families even stayed in the military longer at the behest of Congress. “This is not a social welfare program. These are our earned benefits.”

Maxwell said a consequence of this bill is that people will be less likely to volunteer for the military. That's something she says Americans need to be aware of.
Exactly right. Who would volunteer to serve and possibly sacrifice their lives for this nation when they'll get paid dirt and their families would have to live on food stamps, while those who would send them off to war don't cut their benefits, are exempt from Obamacare, and look at every vote they make as what's best for themselves instead of those they serve?

New York State PTA Official Threatens Parents Who Want To "Opt Out" of Common Core

This is how badly the "state" and the liberals who are on school boards or PTAs that push this radical "Common Core" education agenda want control over what your kids think and learn (Freedom Outpost).

In a video (seen below) on Common Core, New York State PTA Education Coordinator Bob Aloise  supported calling Child Protective Services and charging parents with “educational neglect” for opting-out their kids from the curricula or testing.

The writer of the article noted that many parents have created support groups to stand up to the threat of Common Core, as well as the Opt out option.

Common Core has roots in unrepentant domestic terrorist Bill Ayers and a young then-community organizer named Barack Obama (Breitbart).

Just prior to the presidential election of 2008, Dr. Stanley Kurtz, Senior Fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center, wrote an op-ed published in the Wall Street Journal in which he observed that then-Democrat presidential candidate Sen. Barack Obama’s “most important executive experience” was heading up the Chicago Annenberg Challenge (CAC), an education foundation that was the invention of Bill Ayers, founder of the Weather Underground in the 1960s.

Obama led the CAC from 1995 to 1999 and remained on the board until 2001. The foundation funneled more than $100 million into community organizations and radical education activists.

The CAC’s stated purpose was to improve Chicago’s public schools using funding from an education initiative by Walter Annenberg. As chairman, Obama handled fiscal matters while Ayers co-chaired the CAC’s other key entity, the “Collaborative,” which influenced education policy. Archives from the Richard J. Daley Library at the University of Illinois at Chicago showed that Obama and Ayers worked as a team to advance the CAC agenda.

In his op-ed, Kurtz explained that the Obama campaign at the time said that Ayers had nothing to do with Obama’s “recruitment” to CAC’s board. However, as Kurtz discovered, the Daley archives showed that:
…along with [Deborah] Leff and [Patricia Albjerg] Graham, Mr. Ayers was one of a working group of five who assembled the initial board in 1994. Mr. Ayers founded CAC and was its guiding spirit. No one would have been appointed the CAC chairman without his approval.
Kurtz continued that the CAC’s agenda channeled Ayers’ educational philosophy “which called for infusing students and their parents with a radical political commitment, and which downplayed achievement tests in favor of activism.” Ayers wrote that teachers should act as community organizers whose focus is provoking resistance to American racism and oppression.

...The Chicago Public Education Fund was created in 1998 by Obama, Ayers, and the rest of the CAC board. Then-Illinois state Sen. Obama was a member of the leadership council, as was Bill Ayers’ father, Thomas Ayers, and brother, John Ayers. Ultimately, the CAC closed down in June of 2001, leaving the Fund to distribute grant money.

According to Kurtz, when CAC, prior to closing, conducted its own study of the effects of its grants on the test scores of Chicago public-school students, they found no evidence of educational improvement.

...As Clark observed, many of the same individuals who began in Chicago are expanding the Annenberg/Coalition of Essential Schools model, one that is very similar to the Common Core standards in terms of teaching strategies, lesson plans, and curriculum resources.

Bill Ayers continues to speak on behalf of the Annenberg/CES reform effort and provides professional development to teachers and principals from CES schools and districts.

President Obama and Education Secretary Arne Duncan both promote Bill Ayers’ Small Schools Workshop and the Coalition of Essential Schools in the Department of Education’s recent document, Promoting Grit, Tenacity, and Perseverance: Critical Factors for Success in the 21st Century. In addition, Obama and Duncan have sent billions of taxpayer dollars to states that have adopted the Common Core standards.

And David Coleman, who is now the president of the College Board, has been making sure the SAT, ACT, AP, and GED exams are all aligned with the Common Core standards.

Joe Biden -- Pervert

Looks like Crazy Uncle Joe is getting frisky again (Fox News).

Sure, he likely didn’t mean anything overtly sexual by it. But Vice President Joe Biden is a folksy kind of guy who has officially entered dirty old man territory and done something sure to elicit laughs within the White House Press Corps. Look how he’s manhandling The Hill‘s White House Correspondent Aime Parnes for this photograph taken at a recent holiday party that she posted on her Facebook page.
He's moving up from hitting on married biker chicks.

Federal Judge Rules NSA Data Collection Is Unconstitutional

The decision came down earlier this afternoon. (Fox News)
U.S. District Court Judge Richard Leon granted a preliminary injunction sought by plaintiffs Larry Klayman and Charles Strange. However, he also stayed his decision "pending appeal," giving the U.S. government time to fight the decision over the next several months.

The judge wrote that he expects the government to "prepare itself to comply with this order when, and if, it is upheld."

The ruling was the first major legal defeat for the NSA since former contractor Edward Snowden began exposing secrets about the NSA's data collection over the summer.

"The DOJ is reviewing the ruling but will not comment on it further," the Justice Department said in a brief statement after the decision.

Leon granted the injunction sought by plaintiffs Larry Klayman and Charles Strange, concluding they were likely to prevail in their constitutional challenge. Leon, an appointee of former President George W. Bush, ruled that the two men are likely to be able to show that their privacy interests outweigh the government's interest in collecting the data. Leon says that means the massive collection program is an unreasonable search under the Constitution's Fourth Amendment.

"The Fourth Amendment typically requires 'a neutral and detached authority be interposed between the police and the public,' and it is offended by 'general warrants' and laws that allow searches to be conducted 'indiscriminately and without regard to their connections with a crime under investigation,'" he wrote.

He added: "I cannot imagine a more 'indiscriminate' and 'arbitrary invasion' than this systematic and high-tech collection and retention of personal data on virtually every single citizen for purposes of querying and analyzing it without prior judicial approval. Surely such a program infringes on 'that degree of privacy' that the founders enshrined in the Fourth Amendment. Indeed I have little doubt that the author of our Constitution, James Madison, who cautioned us to beware 'the abridgement of freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments by those in power,' would be aghast."

The Obama administration has defended the program as a crucial tool against terrorism.

Keep in mind the Obama Regime vastly expanded the NSA from what was done in the Bush Administration, targeting only potential terrorists.

"Why Is Our Government Doing This To Us?" Blogger Who Had Life-Saving Surgery Loses Health Insurance Due To Obamacare

If you've been an active reader of the conservative blogosphere over the last few years, you're familiar with the Jim Hoft at Gateway Pundit.

Jim is just a great guy and one of the top conservative bloggers. He's also been generous to many others in the conservative blogosphere, linking to the nuggets they find. He is a co-producer of the great documentary on the late Andrew Breitbart, Hating Breitbart.  One of the high points of gatherings like CPAC and BlogCon has been meeting and hanging out with Jim.  It was an honor to be in the room when he (and Catherine Herridge of Fox News) received the Reed Irvine Award from Accuracy in Media.

This past summer, Jim went into the hospital and underwent sudden life-saving surgery. Yesterday, he posted the following horrible news at Gateway Pundit: "Please Pray For Me, I'm Losing My Insurance."
In August 2013 I became very sick with what I thought was a cold. After a few days I lost vision in my left eye and I checked into the hospital. I soon found out that what I thought was a summer cold was actually Strep bacteria poisoning my blood stream. The bacteria blinded my left eye, ate a hole through my heart, caused five strokes on both sides of my brain and forced the removal of my prosthetic left knee.

Dr. Lee was the surgeon assigned to perform open heart surgery. What was originally scheduled to last four hours ended up lasting twelve. My heart was severely damaged. Dr. Lee later told me the surgery was one of the most difficult of his career. He also said I only had a few days to live without the surgery.

Thanks to the excellent insurance I carried I was able to receive life-saving medical treatment at St. Louis University.

This week I found out I am going to lose my insurance. The company that carried me is leaving the Missouri market. I will have to find something else.

I am one of the millions who will be looking for new insurance. God willing, I will be able to keep my doctors at St. Louis University. I trust them.  They saved my life.  Please pray for me and the millions of working Americans who are going through this same ordeal.

Why is our government doing this to us?
Rush Limbaugh quoted Jim's blog post yesterday on his show, and mentioned stories of others who have lost health-insurance while suffering from cancer.

Even worse, I've seen other stories where people who have lost health-insurance and are now coming under IRS scrutiny for the crime of speaking out against this obamination called Obamacare. Several of you reading this probably have your own stories to tell, I've written several of how members of my own family have lost insurance or had a hard time finding doctors.  How many of you fear the next open-enrollment meeting, or the coming year, when the employer mandate kicking in may cause the loss of your own insurance.

Unbelievable! Fearing for our own welfare and our well-being because of what temporary trustees of power have done to all of us, in the name of grabbing more power for themselves.  That is UnAmerican.  I never dreamed I would see this day in America.

If you are in St. Louis on Saturday from 11a.m. to noon, Jim will be holding a rally at the office of Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill, bringing to her attention the six million Americans who have lost their health insurance because of the Obamacare horror she voted for.

"Dingy" Harry Reid Pressures Obama Regime To Overrule DHS On Visas For Vegas Casino Investors

Pressure to overrule Homeland Security for foreign investors to get visas to a politically connected casino/hotel can be added to "Dingy" Harry Reid's history of dirty land deals and alleged bribes (Washington Times).
The move to overturn what is normally a non-appealable visa decision came despite concerns about “suspicious financial activity” involving some of the visa applicants from Asia, and it ultimately benefited several companies whose executives have donated heavily in recent years to Democrats, the documents show. It also ensnared Mr. Obama’s current nominee to be the No. 2 Homeland Security official, Alejandro “Ali” Mayorkas, whose appointment is to be reviewed by the Senate on Wednesday.

The intervention from Mr. Reid’s staff was so intense at one point a year ago that a U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) official reported that it prompted a phone shouting match, turning a normally bureaucratic review process inside the Homeland Security Department into a politically charged drama that worried career officials.

“This one is going to be a major headache for us all because Sen. Reid’s office/staff is pushing hard and I just had a long yelling match on the phone,” USCIS Legislative Affairs official Miguel “Mike” Rodriguez warned in a Dec. 5, 2012, email to Homeland Security Department officials.

The emails, obtained by The Times from government officials concerned that the EB-5 investor visa program has become too politicized, detail how the SLS Hotel, formerly known as the Sahara Casino, tried to jump to the head of the line for its request for about two dozen visas for Asian investors willing to help it fund a major renovation of the storied property on the Las Vegas Strip.

Despite early pressure from Mr. Reid’s staff, career officials inside the Department of Homeland Security initially turned down the SLS Hotel on the grounds that it failed to meet the criteria for expedited review. The decision, dated Dec. 17, 2012, stated flatly that “there is no appeal or reconsideration of this decision.”

But that simply prompted Mr. Reid to personally reach out to the top official at USCIS, Alejandro “Ali” Mayorkas, setting into motion a process that consumed top political officials inside the Homeland Security and Commerce departments and ultimately resulted in a ruling that granted expedited status to the hotel over the objections of career officials.
To show how slimy and corrupt Reid is, being in bed with the casinos, consider that he largely won his 2010 re-election when the casinos got the buses full of casino employees rolling to the polls.

Paul Ryan = Sell Out

Paul Ryan must be planning a run for President in 2016.

Because he's doing everything he can to sell out the principles he once claimed to stand upon to get the favor of the GOP establishment.

First, Ryan has sold out on amnesty for illegal aliens. Now, the once proud budget cutter has joined the RINO establishment in being so spooked out of possible future government shut downs he's selling out on cutting our budget, by striking a deal with far-Left Senator Patty "Osama Mama" Murray of Washington that gets rid of the sequester and adds new spending.  Judging on e-mails I received from grassroots groups yesterday, there is universal opposition to it, and rightfully so.

Ryan got an earful from Mark Levin last night.
Talk show host Mark Levin told House Budget Committee Chair Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) that the budget deal announced today with Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA) was a "Mickey Mouse" deal, tinkering at the margins of the federal budget, undoing the sequester and exchanging immediate spending increases for future spending cuts.

Ryan countered that "elections have consequences," and that many members of the Republican caucus were worried that the next tranche of sequester cuts would hit the military exclusively. He explained that there would be a net savings of $23 billion after $62 billion in new spending was offset by $85 billion in long-term cuts.

He added that the $85 billion would be a change in mandatory spending, as opposed to discretionary spending, noting that many of the savings would come from federal employees contributing more towards their pensions. Levin countered that even changes in "mandatory" spending could be undone easily by a future Congress.

The Budget Control Act that put the sequester in place, Levin argued, had also been touted as a "permanent" deal. Ryan disagreed, while agreeing that the new deal would not solve the government's overall fiscal problems. It would be impossible to do more, he said, while Obama was president: "Elections have consequences."

Ryan also hinted at the political motivation for the deal: the GOP did not have the stomach to endure another government shutdown, and would prefer to focus on Obamacare instead. Levin responded that it was possible to focus on both spending and Obamacare, and that "nothing" was being done about Obamacare anyway.
"Elections have conesquences?" So, Ryan has just joined the GOP Surrender Caucus for one reason. There is no leadership in the party that is willing to go to the American people and make the case for their plan and rally support. Instead, these cowardly RINOs are all petrified of what the big, bad, Obama Lapdog Media will say about them.

And we're supposed to vote for them?  What good is "standing the line" when none of these guys who are supposed to represent us are willing to do it, but are too willing to make deals for the sake of appearing "bipartisan"?

Erick Erickson has more: BOHICA Act of 2013:
Amazing how much can change in a month. Congressman Paul Ryan and Senator Patty Murray have decided to give up the last thing the GOP was fighting for — spending restraint. “Don’t worry,” Paul Ryan says with his boyish charm designed to induce sweats and heart palpitations among conservatives, “it’s only a little less restrained.”
The budget deal puts discretionary spending over $1 trillion, which is higher than the sequestration deal of 2011, which was at $967. This is, in fact, a spending increase.

It funds Obamacare.

It does not impact the national debt. It does not reform entitlements.

And it raises taxes, but with the more acceptable euphemism of “user fees”, i.e. it only raises taxes on people who go through airport TSA checkpoints. For those of you who dispute this, let me put it this way, has the cost of the TSA grabbing our junk gone up? Will the TSA will be able to grab more junk per hour with the added revenue?

By the way, if this money is going to the TSA, I hope they’ll kindly be slightly more honest and refer to “abuser fees” instead of “user fees” if they aren’t going to honest and call this a tax increase.

So it raises spending, it raises taxes … errr … “user fees”, and it funds Obamacare. It’s the budgetary equivalent of being only a little big pregnant.

But then that’s the problem with Paul Ryan. In his run of the mill voting record, there is no question Paul Ryan is a conservative. It’s just he sees fit to lose his conservative bona fides when high profile votes are on the line. So his friends can cast aspersions on those who suggest he might not be what he appears while he goes on to prove he is not what he appears to be in these big votes.

...But by God, we kept the Democrats from extending unemployment insurance. Some victory that is!

Yesterday, the Democrats began using the nuclear option in the Senate to confirm judges. Today, Republicans will help them increase spending and taxes . . . errrr . . . abuser fees.

Last month Republicans bailed on the Obamacare fight and declared sequestration their line in the sand. Now they are saying they’ll bail on sequestration, but they’ll hold the line on unemployment benefits.

Why should we believe them anymore? Is it any wonder that poll after poll shows Republican voters hate their Republican congressmen and Senators?

Bend over America, here it comes again.
There's a big difference between the last two GOP Vice Presidential candidates whom the media liked to go after. Sarah Palin has held true to her conservative principles, while Paul Ryan is only willing to give  them lip-service, selling out when it becomes expedient for him.

More On Our Pop-Star President's Antics At Mandela Funeral - Moochelle Made Him Switch Seats

In case you didn't know, yesterday should have shown you we have a Justin Bieber wannabe instead of a statesman as President.

Our Pop Star-in-Chief used the backdrop of Nelson Mandela's funeral to take selfies with other leaders, and was getting on so well with the hot legs Danish prime minister that Moochelle made him switch seats (see last of three photos).

Even worse than Obama's pop-star antics, he shakes hands with the leader of Cuba's Communist regime.

He never met a pinko he didn't like.

Never Forget - December 7, 1941 - US Forces Attacked At Pearl Harbor

The Day of Infamy...Pearl Harbor attacked 72 years ago today.

Just as they did over 70 years ago, the appeasers said we should stay out of foreign entanglements.  "Peace in our time" was pursued by our ally Britain against Nazi Germany, but such appeasement did not stop Adolf Hitler, and the attempts by America to stay out of the European conflict did not stop the Japanese militarists, allied with the Nazis, from attacking us.

The battleship USS Arizona was destroyed and sank when a bomb pierced the ship and blew up in the ammunition magazine. The blast killed 1,177 sailors, of which 1,102 remain entombed in the ship.

Oil still comes to the surface from the remains of the ship.

Today, 70 WWII vets, including Pearl Harbor Survivors, are attending ceremonies in Hawaii to remember this day.

Unfortunately, too many in our media can't be bothered to remember this important day in American history.  This is today's view of Yahoo News.  No mention of Pearl Harbor when you go onto their webpage.

America must never forget what those who were there went through, and those who were lost.  Because if we forget our past, we're condemned to repeat it, as the famous saying goes.

Many who may not have been around do their part to remind Americans of that day, such as the Tora, Tora, Tora group of the Commemorative Air Force Gulf Coast Wing.

I was fortunate to have grown up in the Rio Grande Valley in the 1970s-80s when the organization was based there. As part of their airshows were reenactments of World War II air battles such as Pearl Harbor. A recent example of this show (video below from Sacramento in September 2011) was one way this day became more than just a date in a history book.

If you're near an airshow where the Tora Tora Tora group is appearing, check it out for living history.  Perhaps one day soon, a vintage P-40 Warhawk that survived the Pearl Harbor attack might fly at one of these airshows.

The boyhood best friend of my maternal grandfather was a survivor of the USS Nevada, and received the Navy Cross for his actions on the ship that day in fighting off Japanese airplanes, and for saving many lives that day. It was a privilege to know that man. I wrote about him here in 2007.

God Bless America and those who lost their lives 72 years ago today.

Obama Lies Again: Admits He Briefly Lived With Illegal Alien Uncle

From Christine Rousselle at

Despite White House claims in early 2012 that President Obama had never met his illegal immigrant uncle Onyango "Omar" Obama, the president admitted today that he did indeed stay with him during a three-week period in law school.

Omar Obama first made news when he was charged with drunk driving in 2011, and was recently granted permission to remain and work in the United States. At his court hearing he claimed the president lived with him briefly in the 1980s, which contradicted earlier White House claims.
On Thursday, a White House official said the press office had not fully researched the relationship between the president and his uncle before telling the Globe that they had no record of the two meeting. This time, the press office asked the president directly, which they had not done in 2011.
“The president first met Omar Obama when he moved to Cambridge for law school,” said White House spokesman Eric Schultz. “The president did stay with him for a brief period of time until his apartment was ready. After that, they saw each other once every few months, but after law school they fell out of touch. The president has not seen him in 20 years, has not spoken with him in 10.”
The White House said Obama’s immigration case was handled “without any interference from the president or the White House.”
Yeah and I'm sure the Regime didn't interfere with Obama's drunken uncle's immigration case.

More proof that everytime Obama opens his mouth, you can expect a whopping lie.

Here's another lie that may be coming undone.

Crybaby John Boehner Hires Former McLame Aide To Help Obama & Dems With Amnesty

What good is the Republican speaker of the house when he's trying to help Obama and the Democrats legalize people who broke our immigration laws?  (Talking Points Memo)
According to her BPC bio, Tallent has worked as a policy aide on immigration and energy issues to Rep. Jim Kolbe (R-AZ) and Sen. John McCain (R-AZ). She has served as chief of staff for McCain's office and senior policy adviser to his 2008 presidential campaign.
The hire is likely to spark speculation about Boehner's plans with regard to immigration reform, which passed the Democratic-led Senate earlier this year but has stalled in the Republican-led House.
According to the link from Harey Kronberg's Quorum Report, Boehner is pushing for amnesty, weeks after saying it wasn't going to happen.
An aggressive timeline for passing comprehensive immigration reform may become a reality based on two significant developments on Capitol Hill.
One of them is that House Speaker John Boehner has hired an Immigration Policy Director who has deep experience in overhaul efforts. The other is that in recent weeks, various Texas business interests have told Quorum Report that Boehner has been telling them that he will start holding immigration votes not long after the filing deadline has passed. This, of course, runs counter to conventional wisdom that says immigration votes in the House will have to wait until 2014
So, Obama and Reid can slap the Republicans in the Senate around like a battered wife and yet RINOs like the drunk Boehner in the House and the Senate RINO eunuch McConnell keep trying to appease these liberal bullies by passing their legislation so they won't get smacked around again.

Time to get on the phone and shut DC down.

Can You Feel The Love? Chris "Thrill Up My Leg" Matthews To Inverview Obama

Oh this is going to be messy (Politico via FreeRepublic).
MSNBC's Chris Matthews will interview President Barack Obama this Thursday, the network announced Tuesday.
The interview is part of Matthews' "Hardball College Tour," and will take place at American University in Washington, D.C.
According to a news release from MSNBC, Matthews, along with university students, will "discuss a variety of topics with the president including voter suppression, healthcare, the decline of confidence in the government and the overall political dysfunction in Washington."

So much for this being "Hardball," because of Chrissy boy's great love for Obama, it will be called "Softball" because those will be the types of questions asked.

I'm wondering if MSNBC will consider running a parental notification, or perhaps move the interview to an adult TV channel, in case Matthews decides to publicly pleasure himself talking to this phony whom he proudly claimed gave him a thrill up his leg.
