So here is the bottom line Obama,Congress and the Senate just don't get it...!

They rely on their so called elite Universities vs actual real time life experience kinda/sorta akin to MSM et al...yeah baby professors know it all albeit they have never experienced real life..They are teachers not doers...much less real fun...oh well to each their own I I prefer one on one... taste,touche,smell and feel...but wth do I know Anywhoo? I respect the Jim Bridger's of the world, not so called college professors/ geeks....but hey thats just me...and ya know what I have survived almost 70 years with my philosophy...whats your claim to fame?...rofl

Hit it John/Jim:)

@ MSM and Fox News ...Paul Revere rides again..!

Ok  I am weary of sounding the alarm as well as trying trying to explain to y'all where Obama is taking since y'all only understand sound bites and videos maybe this will wake ya up...if not y'all are complicit Obama enablers and it will go down in history once again! deja vu!  

Oh and if  ya prefer your medicine with a little humor this may help:

The US Park service closing streets on mere whim and caprice without authority!

The Park Service appears to be closing streets on mere whim and caprice. The rangers even closed the parking lot at Mount Vernon, where the plantation home of George Washington is a favorite tourist destination. That was after they barred the new World War II Memorial on the Mall to veterans of World War II. But the government does not own Mount Vernon; it is privately owned by the Mount Vernon Ladies' Association. The ladies bought it years ago to preserve it as a national memorial. The feds closed access to the parking lots this week, even though the lots are jointly owned with the Mount Vernon ladies. The rangers are from the government, and they’re only here to help.
“It’s a cheap way to deal with the situation,” an angry Park Service ranger in Washington says of the harassment. “We’ve been told to make life as difficult for people as we can. It’s disgusting.”

Draft Dodger VP Joe Biden backs park ranger who stopped vets at WWII memorial

Oped: Hey Joe I for one am not proud of your service you soiled the US Senate and now the office of Vice President! You are a embarrassment to the United States of America along with your boss Barry Barack Soetoro Hussein Davis Obama or whatever his real name is!

Vice President Joe Biden is proud of the National Park Service ranger who stood up to Rep. Randy Neugebauer at the National World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C.
On Thursday, video surfaced online of Neugebauer, a Texas Republican, angrily lecturing the ranger for setting up barricades to the memorial.
"I'm proud of you," Biden said, according to his office's Twitter account, revealing that the vice president had called the ranger to thank her for her service.
Neugebauer told the ranger that the Park Service should be "ashamed" for blocking access to the memorial.
“I’m not ashamed,” the ranger replied.

Obama's Fatal Mistake on Social Security

US President Barack Obama speaks on the govern...
by: Paul Roderick Gregory 

In a speech in Rockville, Maryland today, President Barack Obama blew up the Democrat’s social-security “third rail” in eighteen words.  Usually, Obama’s gaffes come off-the-cuff. Today’s remarks were, however, prepared; namely:
“In a government shutdown, Social Security checks still go out on time. In an economic shutdown — if we don’t raise the debt ceiling — they don’t go out on time.“ 

Obama’s clear threat: If the Republicans do not raise the debt ceiling by October 19, retired Americans risk not getting their social security checks!
Obama’s threat will prove a fatal mistake that he cannot “walk back,” as the Washington pundits like to say.
In these eighteen words, Obama destroyed the Democratic Party’s claim to be the protector of retired Americans, who have earned their social security checks through decades of payroll-tax contributions. The Democrats warn that Republicans want to privatize social security and enrich Wall Street with risky investment schemes. Under us, however, your retirement funds are in a “lock box,” which guarantees you every retirement dollar you have earned. Only the Democrats stand for retired Americans. 

But Obama today said something entirely different! He admitted there is no lock box. Whether retirees get their social security checks now somehow depends upon the federal government being able to borrow more.  And I thought social security funds were in the “lock box” of the “Old Age and Survivors Trust Fund,” which at last count has a balance of $2.4 trillion in safe U.S. government securities.
Obama’s threat is made even more puzzling by the fact that contributions to social security pretty much pay for retirement benefits. Obama’s proposed budget estimates that American workers will contribute $739 billion into the lock box, which covers 86 percent of the $860 billion owed this year to retired Americans. The $121 billion shortfall can be paid out of the multi-trillion dollar trust fund. There is plenty of money for retirement benefits. Retirees will ask: Why are you all of a sudden tying our checks to the government’s borrowing limit? There is more than enough money for us retirees, and we have been told it is our money. We do not understand! 

When Obama tries to walk this one back, he’ll probably say: “We plan to spend $4 trillion in 2014, but we only have revenues of $3 trillion.  If we cannot borrow the one out of four dollars we need, we’ll  have to live on $3 trillion (what we spent in 2008, by the way). Without more borrowing, you retirees have to get in line with everyone else. Too bad, if you don’t get your retirement checks, but federal employees, contractors and Homeland Security are in line too.
I doubt that will go down well with older Americans and even with one of the President’s staunchest allies, the AARP. I receive a monthly retirement check after contributing into the lock box for fifty years. Waiting in line for my check will not sit well with me, for sure.
To protect retired Americans, the Republicans in Congress should offer a bill to prevent President Obama from defunding social security as he proposed today in Rockville, Maryland. I’d like to see how many negative votes it would get. Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, and Mike Lee  get your pens ready. Harry Reid: Are you going to refuse a vote to protect grandpa’s social security?
PS Treasury Secretary Jack Lew should be fired for saying that, in case the Republicans do not raise the debt ceiling, he might have to default on America’s debt. If he can’t find $200 billion from the $3 trillion in anticipated revenues, we need a new treasury secretary. 

Senior Group Backs ‘De-fund ObamaCare’ Movement En Masse

undo obamacare Senior group backs De fund ObamaCare movement en masse

America’s largest senior group, the American Association of Retired Persons, continues alienating much of its membership by relentlessly touting the purported benefits of ObamaCare. In response, a crop of new, more conservative alternatives to the AARP have gained popularity in recent years.
One such organization, Conservative50Plus, is at the forefront of the fight against socialized healthcare after accepting a challenge by Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah). Lee, whose vocal criticism of ObamaCare in the Senate has been matched only by Ted Cruz, has continually chronicled the disastrous mandates included within the behemoth bill.
As Cruz engaged in a nearly daylong filibuster speech last week, during which he made the conservative case against Obama’s signature piece of legislation, Lee used the opportunity to meet personally with Conservative50Plus Executive Director John Skakel.

Encouraging members, all of whom are at least 50 years old, to join in the push to de-fund ObamaCare, Lee wanted to see how many petitions the organization could deliver to Capitol Hill.
A final tally showed that the group sent the Senate 68,672 signed petitions, which were presented to the chamber by Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.).
Though it is incumbent upon all Americans to research ObamaCare and the unconscionable mandates contained therein, seniors are perhaps most at risk under the new law. The fact that the AARP continues to support this legislation, while simultaneously receiving funds from the same federal government seeking to impose it, merely demonstrates the failure of that group to represent the best interest of its members.
Patriots aligned with Conservative50Plus and other organizations have found alternative ways to make sure their voices are heard. With support from Lee, Cruz, Paul, and others, the leftists in charge of this debacle will have no choice but to listen.

The nonsense coming out of D.C. is staggering.  And not just because of the amount and speed of it, which reminds me of a post-party-night malady I ran into in the Philippines that my fellow squids affectionately labeled, the San Miguel Squirts.  Not just that, but also the sheer stupid of it.
We have Nancy Pelosi, with as much plastic in her face as Mr. Potato Head, assuring us that every possible cut that can be made to the Federal budget has been made.  The fragile US economy is like Michael Jackson's nose at the end of his life, apparently.  Even the sight of another scalpel might make it all fall into dust. This, while Congressional committees are in hearings over multiple millions of dollars misused by the playful and endlessly creative folks at your friendly neighborhood IRS; and Rep. Issa's crew is wondering how one man so suckered the EPA that they actually believed his absences from work were because he was off saving the world as a CIA agent, and thus paid him six figures plus a retirement.


After Shutdown: Administration Gives $445,000,000 to Corporation for Public Broadcasting

After Shutdown: Administration Gives $445,000,000 to Corporation for Public Broadcasting
On the first day of the “shutdown” of the federal government, when members of the U.S. Senate were going to the well of their house to point out that the shutdown would prevent the National Institutes of Health from starting clinical trials for cancer patients and others facing possibly terminal illnesses, the administration was giving $445,000,000 to the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, according to the Daily Treasury Statement.That means PBS NewsHour, National Public Radio and Sesame Street got a taxpayer subsidy during the shutdown, but not would-be cancer patients at the NIH.
The $445 million the Treasury handed over to CPB was more than the $119 million the Treasury paid on the first day of the shutdown in interest on U.S. government debt that is held by the public. It was also more than $171 million in Social Security benefits the Treasury paid that day. But it was less than the $592 million the Treasury paid for Veterans Affairs programs on the first day of the shutdown.

Forced Evictions in Spain

Oped: Coming to the US soon...Obamacare will be the death nail in the proverbial coffin!
Forced evictions in Spain
A deep recession and soaring unemployment in Spain triggered by a housing crash has led to an increase in forced evictions of homeowners unable to pay their mortgage.
Some Spanish gypsy families settled in the area of Puerta de Hierro, near the Palace of Moncloa, in the 1960s and have built brick houses and raised their children and grandchildren there ever since. The settlers are registered with the town hall and have access to public services, but for the past two years have been subject to several evictions under Madrid's town planning board orders, on the grounds that the dwellings are illegal. Members of some families, mostly the eldest, have been relocated to public housing flats in the city, but often their children and grandchildren have been denied the same right to relocation, resulting in many families refusing to go to the rental flats assigned to them because they do not want to leave their children and grandchildren homeless. Out of more than 50 homes that used to stand in the neighborhood, there are only six left now among the debris of those already demolished. (Reuters)

Democrats’s Shutdown Is Refusal To Face The American People

by: Dana Loesch
We’ve heard stories of Democrats attempting to “shutdown” privately owned historical sites like Mount Vernon and many other privately funded and run parks. They want the shutdown for use as a weapon, to “hurt and rescue” the American people. Case in point: Canyon Voyages Adventure Company.
Don Oblak’s Moab, Utah-based Canyon Voyages Adventure Co. depends on the Colorado River, which winds through breathtaking ravines in the Arches and Canyonlands National Parks.
But national parks will have to remain closed during any government shutdown. The Bureau of Land Management has told Oblak that he would not have access to rivers on its lands.
That means he’d have to cancel kayak and whitewater trips on the river, his core business.
Oblak fears that if the government shuts down even for a short time, it will affect his business for the entire month of October because his clients will cancel their trips. If that happens, he’d have to furlough all 25 employees at Canyon Voyages and cancel pre-sold tours. Combined with lost sales from his retail store, a lengthy shutdown could lead to an estimated $200,000 loss.
Apparently all of the water has been shut off in rivers that wind through public land. Despite no “maintenance” needed for this company to take tours down the river, it’s still “shutdown.”

Apparently all of the water has been shut off in rivers that wind through public land. Despite no “maintenance” needed for this company to take tours down the river, it’s still “shutdown.”
Democrats want the shut down to be as visible and painful-looking as possible so as to convince the public that they need massive government. Barricades have been placed in tour bus turn-arounds; direct orders were given to block WWII veterans from seeing the memorial built to them, mostly by them.
Odd, they don’t react this way on federal holidays when government is truly shut down. Democrats could have stopped the appearance of pain by passing the Republican compromise sent to the Senate. Instead, they rejected it. Obama said he would veto it. Republicans suggested passing piecemeal spending bills for veterans, NIH; Democrats rejected the suggestion. Obama said he would veto these spending bills. Democrats refuse to pass a clean CR. They won’t pass Obamacare funding as a stand alone, which is what they should do, because doing so means they would face the unpopularity of Obamacare. The majority of Americans have never been anything but opposed to this act. It passed with not a single Republican vote as a Senate bill masquerading behind a House bill name so as not to get blue-slipped. Unconstitutional, yes. Sneaky, only if you weren’t paying attention. Democrats can’t risk the PR nightmare of navigating it through congress as a separate bill, so they hitch it to military pay and other essential things so they can claim Republicans hate paying the military because they oppose Obamacare funding. Imagine: Republicans, who not one voted for Obamacare, who also oppose its funding. Elections do have consequences. One of those is that Democrats lost the House and the power of the purse.
Meanwhile to cover their tactics, Democrats increase the pain on people like the aforementioned river tour company. Even previous presidents Clinton and Carter once in awhile emerged from their echo chambers to negotiate. Obama won’t because to do so is to face the American people.

Welcome to the Harry and Barry Shutdown Show

Daniel Horowitz 
What a difference a sense of conviction and the presence of a Republican backbone brings to a debate in Washington.  Democrats are beginning to slowly grovel back to the negotiation table, barely able to contain their show of bravado.  We are now having a national discussion about Obamacare, something that would have never happened had we not chosen to fight on the budget bill.
As we enter day three of the partial government shutdown, we’ve seen that the Obama administration is forced to employ insidious tactics to ensure that people will feel the effects of the shutdown, and that their willing accomplices in the media will broadcast the pain.  Senator Harry Reid and President Barack Obama are refusing to support targeted funding bills for veterans, the NIH, and national parks unless we all agree to fund every last penny of Obamacare, even as the law is universally regarded as ‘not ready for prime time.’  They are placing the priorities of their special interests ahead of the commitments to our veterans.
To make matters worse, the administration has sent out government workers to actively shut down outdoor memorials, such as the World II Memorial in Washington.  The administration erected barriers to block veterans from merely walking through their own memorial.  Hence, Obama is creating “essential workers” for the purpose of actively shutting down something that doesn’t need to be shutdown. We are seeing government websites going dark, even though a lapse in funding would merely engender a suspension in updating the website, not a closure.
The Harry and Barry Shutdown show is political theater at its worst, but is nothing new.  They employed the same tactic early this year when the sequester cuts took effect.  Much to the chagrin of the left, nobody noticed when the tree of excess government spending fell in the forest.  So Obama took it upon himself to release thousands of criminal illegal aliens onto the streets in order to contrive a crisis and link it to the modest spending cuts.

Something funny occurs when we actually stand and fight.  Democrats are put on defense, and they begin to make mistakes.  We begin shifting the polls, public perception, and even the media cycle.  This shift became apparent today when a flummoxed Harry Reid became unhinged with a CNN reporter, suggesting that he would not want to help one kid with cancer and pass an NIH funding bill.  They are completely on the run.  Now the narrative is all about the Democrats refusing to fund vital services for the purpose of preserving every penny of Obamacare.  Even President Bill Clinton agreed to pass some small funding bills for essential services during the 1995 standoff.
We are witnessing more House Republicans waking up to another day of the shutdown with the realization that the entire narrative of Republicans losing this battle is complete bunk.  Even the Republican National Committee is jumping in to this battle, something we would never have expected just a few weeks ago.
Imagine where we would be in this fight if we didn’t have the breakdown of leadership in the Senate led by Senator Mitch McConnell and Senator John Cornyn?  One senator after another – from Pat Toomey and Jeff Flake to Tom Coburn and John McCain – are openly siding with Harry Reid, publicly cosigning us to defeat, or undermining our position.  Senators Harry Reid and Dick Durbin are reading off the names of the dissenters on the Senate floor.  Imagine if the Senate Republicans would join the House in fighting the Harry and Barry Obamacare shutdown show?

Some Republicans are finally learning that intrepid conviction, a simple message, and a noble cause will not fall victim to the doomsday predictions of D.C. conventional wisdom.  A unified battle over something as important as preserving our healthcare system will change that conventional wisdom.  The more Democrats see  Republicans mean business and are willing to stand with unwavering resolve against Obamacare, the quicker their false sense of invincibility will evaporate.

Obamacare can be defunded without Senate approval

The Newseum Celebrates Its Grand Opening In Washington
By Christopher Collins
When the House passed legislation to defund ObamaCare but would keep the government running through mid-December, the Senate, led by Senate Majority Leader, Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) stated that they would not budge on Obamacare and the legislation was defeated.
On Monday, Dr. Harold Pease, an expert on the United States Constitution, stated that the authority in dealing with Obamacare funding belongs to the U.S. House, not the U.S. Senate and that the House is doing this all wrong.
Pease said, “Everything hinged upon funding which was given exclusively to the House of Representatives, the only power that they alone had.”
Pease went on to say, “All bills for raising revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives; but the Senate may propose or concur with Amendments as on other Bills. To fund anything, in this case Obamacare, first approval is required by the House of Representatives.”

“If that does not happen taxpayer money cannot be spent. The people, through their representatives to Congress, have determined, after a three-year closer scrutiny of The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Obamacare), that it does not protect the patient, is not affordable and is not even workable; hence in the interests of the vast majority of the people needs to be defunded.”
When the United States Supreme Court ruled on Obamacare in 2012, Chief Justice Roberts stance on Obamacare coincides with the intent of the U.S. Constitution, explained by Pease, and the powers between the House and Senate.
According to the U.S. Supreme Court ruling, Obamacare cannot be implemented and is not considered the law of the land, contrary to Democrat claims.
Bubba Atkinson of the Independent Journal Review wrote, “Chief Justice Roberts actually ruled the mandate, relative to the commerce clause, was unconstitutional. That is how the Democrats got Obama-care going in the first place. This is critical. His ruling means Congress can’t compel American citizens to purchase anything, ever. The notion is now officially and forever, unconstitutional. As it should be.”

“Next, he stated that, because Congress doesn’t have the ability to mandate, it must, to fund Obama-care, rely on its power to tax. Therefore, the mechanism that funds Obama-care is a tax,” said Atkinson. “He struck down as unconstitutional, the Obama-care idea that the federal government can bully states into complying by yanking their existing medicaid funding. Liberals, through Obama-care, basically said to the states — “comply with Obama-care or we will stop existing funding.” Roberts ruled that is a no-no.”
When the House attached Obamacare to the legislation in funding the government, it made a mistake in doing so and the funding of Obamacare should have been separate, thereby giving the Senate no power in denying the Houses’ request to defund Obamacare.
Pease said, “House opposition to funding Obamacare would have been far more powerful if made a “stand alone” bill not attached to general funding, but it is not. “Stand alone,” having no other parts, would have left the Senate no wiggle or compromise room once it went to them, nor would there be for the Joint Conference Committee thereafter that reconciles any differences between the two houses. There would be nothing to reconcile, Obamacare is merely defunded.”

“Still, the intent of the Founding Fathers was to give the people, through their House of Representatives, the power collectively to say no to any proposed federal tax, which she is decidedly doing.”
If Obamacare is removed from the government budget, presented, and voted on as a separate bill, Obamacare can be defunded by the House and the Senate and the President has no constitutional authority to override the House decision.

Here's The Memo That Fox News Chief Roger Ailes Sent To Staff About His New Breaking News System Ahead Of Monday's Launch

Roger Ailes

Fox News
Roger Ailes
Fox News Chairman and CEO Roger Ailes sent a memo Thursday to producers, shows, talent and executives involved in executing a new vision led by Shepard Smith — one that makes him the face of a new, breaking-news division.
Ailes' memo, which was obtained by Business Insider, comes four days before the launch of the Ailes system,  which he created as   the newly established breaking-news division led by Smith.
Smith told Business Insider last month that the idea was first hatched during a dinner between Smith and Ailes in Manhattan four months ago.
Smith's new role is part of  a push from the network to modernize the way news is presented by " escaping the boundaries of the traditional evening newscast."  Smith  will be the managing editor of the breaking-news division, while continuing in his position as Chief News Anchor.
He'll continue anchoring the 3 p.m. hour on the network, in a program called "Shepard Smith Reporting." He'll anchor from "The Fox News Deck," a newly constructed, signature studio with state-of-the-art technology. From there, Smith will hop in to deliver breaking news throughout the day as it happens.

"The talent will be more like an NFL quarterback with the ability to call audibles when he sees openings," Ailes wrote in the memo. "We will move seamlessly between the teleprompter and storytelling, and the public will have an opportunity to see how the news is being put together and how the programs are built."
Here's the full memo from Ailes:
"As we approach our 17 th  anniversary at FOX News, we are beginning to dramatically change the way news is presented to the public.  This has been a vision of mine for several years.  I always felt that the most powerful means of communications (video) was restricted to a tape mark, a teleprompter, a talent reading and a control room.  That should not be true today. 
The NEWS DECK STUDIO which I envisioned has been pretty much completed and  Monday  starting with Shep’s  3pm  program, news will be integrated throughout the evening.  Shep and I are both excited about this new approach.  Control of the program will be split between the studio and an off-camera control room.  The producer’s function and director’s function will change somewhat. 

The talent will be more like an NFL quarterback with the ability to call audibles when he sees openings.   We will move seamlessly between the teleprompter and storytelling, and the public will have an opportunity to see how the news is being put together and how the programs are built.  This will be more organic in terms of the feed sources including video, all digital, and even social media. 
I expect there to be a few mistakes along the way because this is a high wire act without a net going live to the public.  Any mistakes, however, will not justify changing the need for a special talent presenting the news and using the most updated technology to inform our public. 
I know everyone has worked hard to get ready for the  October 7th  launch.  I expect the innovations I’ve envisioned to be a cutting edge news presentation and I have confidence in all of you to deliver it.  If something goes wrong, don’t be afraid to let the audience in on what you’re doing and why you’re doing it.  Don’t apologize for trying to speed up how, when, and where people get their news.  Do your best.  Thank you for everything you’ve done so far."  

An Update On Obama’s Personal Army…Hiding in Obamacare Bill..!

General Obama Forward Stand Down SC An update on Obama’s personal army...

Because the American military swears an allegiance to the U.S. Constitution, and not to the President, could Obama’s strategy be to strip our Armed Services and shift their dollars into an all powerful civilian Army under his command?  Two tips coming into CiR this week surprisingly connect just these dots and link these machinations to Obamacare funding.
On page 496 of H.R. 3590 is this quote: ” (b) Assimilating Reserve Corp Officers Into the Regular Corps. . .Effective on the date of enactment of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, all individuals classified as officers in the Reserve (civilian) Corps . . .shall be deemed to be commissioned officers of the Regular Corps.”  Reserve and Regular Corps are military terms used to describe a “civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well funded,” says Obama in his famous Civilian Army Speech.
An article from the Marine Corps Times this week states: “The Marine Corps faces a difficult period of transition that will include shedding thousands of personnel per year, sharpening its role as a crisis-response force. . .”  This means our U.S. Marine Corps is being cut by 8,000 personnel fewer “than previously planned, and 12,800 fewer than the 186,800 end strength” recommended by senior Marine analysts!  This severe reduction in the Marine Corps force is the “minimum acceptable force” according to the warning given Congress by Commandant Gen. Jim Amos.  “Eleven combat arms battalions and 14 aviation squadrons will be cut,” he added.  This very important article, sent to CiR, details a severe force reduction in “Manpower and Force Structure,” plus procurements and even Aviation.  As many as 25,000 airmen and 550 planes “would go if sequester continues.”  But how come sequester isn’t affecting Obama’s Army?

A long time FEMA source cites this sentence in the Obama Army speech:  “We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set.”  This tipster told CiR that when Obama took office, older, long time FEMA employees and/or individual assistance personnel were in the process of being replaced by “18 to 24 year olds who knew next to nothing” about homeland security or emergency response.  These young people and FEMA operations were pulled into Washington, D.C. under the executive branch’s prerogative.
Ordinary citizens cannot ignore the increased local and state police presence now seen all over American streets, television screens, and ubiquitous surveillance cameras.  Just this month, SWAT team goons shot and killed a 107 year old black man, Monroe Isadore, in Pine Bluff, Arkansas.  An over-eager Tallahassee, Florida road cop team used such force to subdue a tiny young mother with alcohol breath that they broke the bones under her blackened eye while inflicting other injuries on the small woman.
This is over-the-top overreach; but federal money talks, right?  Those DHS disaster drills are filling the coffers of local police nationwide as tax dollars from suffering taxpayers shrink public sector income.
Just what part does the Obamacare law, passed in the middle of the night in rather creative, legislative Potomac Two Step style, play in defunding our military in order to fund his “strong civilian national security force?”

Video: Congressman: 30-40 GOP Lawmakers Refuse To Admit Legitimacy Of Obama’s Presidency

Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) says that there are about 30 to 40 Republicans in Congress who refuse to recognize the legitimacy of Obama’s presidency and are seeking to erase everything that’s happened during his administration.

Obama calls for striking union workers to be fired

oped: rofl...he is biting the hand that fed him...won't be long now before #Impeachment becomes reality:) 

John Hayward 
 Hilarity ensues as a panicked Barack Obama – fresh off his defeat at the hands of elderly World War II veterans – grabs a microphone and makes a compelling case for firing every union worker who goes on strike: 

The poor saps cheering him are almost as funny as Obama himself.  The only thing that would make this clip better would be a quick reaction shot of an aide facepalming himself into a coma, or maybe a union boss beginning to applaud until he realizes what the President just said, at which point he slowly stops clapping.
We were already painfully aware that this President doesn’t know much about business, but it looks as if he doesn’t understand organized labor very well, either.  Maybe he just sees little bags of campaign money when he looks at his union pals.  He hasn’t been moved by their complaints against ObamaCare, has he?
The President also fell back on the kind of rhetoric liberals used to decry as unacceptable effusions in a toxic Climate of Hate, wailing that “you don’t negotiate by putting a gun to the other person’s head, or worse, putting a gun to the American people’s head” – even though he’s the one who keeps looking for ways to make the American people suffer as much as possible during the shutdown.  He seems nervous about the possibility that a critical mass of people will notice that.

Need health care coverage? Just dial 1-800-F**KYO to reach Obamacare’s national hotline

by: Katie McHugh 

Need health insurance? The Obama administration has you covered. Simply dial 1-800-FUCKYO to reach the next available health-care provider.
Far from being a mistype, that’s the official number that Health and Human Services wants Americans to dial when seeking health care. Obamacare’s national call center really did list its number as 1-800-318-2596, helpfully spelling out President Barack Obama’s tendency to blatantly flip the bird in plain view.
After allowing for the lack of letters attached to 1 on a traditional American telephone keypad, the number spells out a clear message. For every duped voter, every young invincible weighing the cost of a penalty versus a newly tripled yearly deductible, every ailing old granny in a wheelchair (whom, remember, Paul Ryan wants to push off a cliff) who needs adequate and affordable health care, Obama’s message is:

Compare & Save on CA Health Plans. Get a Fast, Free Quote Online Now! 

1-800-3(F) 8(U) 2(C) 5(K) 9(Y) 6(O).
That’s 1-800-FUCKYO. Sadly, the Obama administration failed to swap the useless 1 for a more functional 8 to complete the heartfelt message, perhaps in consolation to former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel’s tragically shortened middle finger.
Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius launched a media campaign this week to propagandize the transformative health-care overhaul. She compared the sweeping, coercive law that gives government huge power over the health-care industry to an iPhone system update.
“Everyone just assumes, “Well, there’s a problem, they’ll fix it, we’ll move on,’” Sebelius said about Apple’s iOS updates. “And like many of their customers, I put the ‘new’ system on my phone and went on my merry way, but it was just a reminder that we’re likely to have some glitches. We will fix them and move on. Is this a sign that the law is flawed and failed? I don’t think so. I think it’s a sign that we’re building a piece of complicated technology. We want it to work. We want it to work right. We’ve got an incredible team working 24/7 to do just that.”
“Hopefully they’ll give us the same slack they give Apple,” Sebelius said, according to the Wall Street Journal.
It’s ironic that liberals show what they really think of people.

Megalomaniac Harry Reid: ‘Why Would We…’ Help Kids With Cancer?

By:  Marilyn Assenheim
Anyone who has ever caught a five year old doing something he knows is wrong knows what to expect; denial (“I didn’t do it”), projection (“you made me do it”) and, when all else fails, petulance, name calling and egotistical ranting. Mind-numbing deceit fortifies every stage. Infant miscreants seldom get away with it. Yet, when Democrat reprobates achieve office and their lackeys in the media indulge in the same dishonest and willful behavior, the nation accepts every falsity, wringing its hands and moaning. Recent news stories exemplify how America enables overblown, megalomaniacal bullies in government to hijack the narrative and hold an entire nation hostage to its demands.

FOX News asked, Wednesday:  “Is the Obama administration employing a make-it-hurt strategy to gain political leverage in the budget battle on Capitol Hill?” Presumably, this was a serious inquiry. After 5 years of a ruinous presidency FOX still queried whether The Lyin’ King and his regime are damaging the nation deliberately. Let’s presume the question is serious. On Wednesday, The Washington Examiner offered FOX enlightenment in the following headline: “Shutdown overreach: More personnel sent to WWII memorial than Benghazi; Park Service closes park it doesn’t run.” Sure sounds deliberate.

Harry Reid kept the ball rolling with a typically, over-the-top, Orwellian whopper, made after he’d turned down yet another House bill intended to partially fund the government: “On the same day that Democrats in Congress delivered quality, affordable health insurance to tens of millions more Americans, Republicans in Congress delivered the nation a government shutdown…And thanks to the Republican government shutdown, 200 sick patients – including 30 children – were turned away from a National Institutes of Health clinic that offers life-saving new treatments. Most of the children turned away are suffering from various forms of cancer.” He accused “modern day Anarchists in the House” of “dancing with glee over the shut down.” But even Dana Bash of CNN wasn’t buying that hooey: “You all talked about children with cancer unable to go to clinical trials. The House is presumably going to pass a bill that funds at least the NIH. Given what you’ve said, will you at least pass that? And if not, aren’t you playing the same political games that Republicans are… if you can help one child who has cancer, why wouldn’t you do it? ” Reid, jettisoning accusations he’d leveled at Republicans moments earlier, answered her: “Why would we want to do that? I have 1,100 people at Nellis Air Force base that are sitting home. They have a few problems of their own. This is — to have someone of your intelligence to suggest such a thing maybe means you’re irresponsible and reckless …” The outright lies in Reid’s statement beggar count. Despite Reid’s contempt for us we are expected to believe him. In case anyone is paying attention, it is the Democrat bully pulpit preventing government funding. The House simply excised Obamacare from an otherwise fully funded Federal budget. But Democrats and their enablers want Obamacare, despite the will of the people. Democrats want it visited on you, that is, not them. The ruling class voted, overwhelmingly, to exempt themselves from the Obamacare yoke.

As of this writing, Senator Ted Cruz’s “Don’t Fund Obamacare” petition has well over 2 million signatures. Every survey to date confirms that Obamacare is thoroughly despised and that a majority of Americans want it gone. Despite the regime’s dogma, Democrat ideologues don’t care about or respect “the people.” Obamacare is The Lyin’ King’s creation. He has enacted a scorched earth policy to preserve it because he believes he is entitled to whatever he wants.
On 2/15/13 The Lyin’ King said “The problem is that I’m president of the United States, I’m not the Emperor of the United States. My job is to execute laws that are passed.” Really? Five years experience puts the lie to that declaration. He was positioning the comment to appear democratic but he was deadly serious. He’s been earnestly engaged in making Emperor his personal reality. And the regime’s Imperial court, under the guidance of the likes of Harry Reid, will do anything to make it so at the nation’s expense…figuratively and literally.

DNC Nearly Broke; RNC Has Cash To Spare

DNC Nearly Broke; RNC Has Cash To Spare
The Democratic National Committee (DNC), which sets the party’s National platform, plots out election strategy and sits atop its fundraising hierarchy, is nearly broke. In fact, the DNC is so deep in the hole that it’s having to negotiate delinquent vendor payments on a case-by-case basis.
Some of those disgruntled vendors broke the DNC story Monday by anonymously complaining to CNN that the DNC was seriously overdue on payments.
From the CNN/Fortune report:
It is a highly unusual state of affairs for a national party – especially one that can deploy the President as its fundraiser-in-chief – and it speaks to the quiet but serious organizational problems the party has yet to address since the last election, obscured in part by the much messier spectacle of GOP infighting.
The Democrats’ numbers speak for themselves: Through August, 10 months after helping President Obama secure a second term, the DNC owed its various creditors a total of $18.1 million, compared to the $12.5 million cash cushion the Republican National Committee is holding.
It’s not as though Barack Obama has not been pounding the pavement on the fundraising circuit; he’s done 15 engagements so far this year. But much of the grass-roots effectiveness of the Obama money machine owes not to the DNC’s organizational structure, but to Organizing for Action (formerly Organizing for America, then Obama for America), the metamorphosed community organizing group that, under the DNC’s leadership, helped Obama win the White House in 2008 and 2012. OFA has used its extensive mailing list and stronger leadership to effectively cannibalize the DNC’s donor base.
In addition, DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, despite her party leadership position, has reportedly faced tough sledding as an aloof political outsider with no strong ties to the Administration of Obama, the Democrats’ chief fundraiser.
“The [OFA] group can raise unlimited sums from deep-pocketed donors, and there is some evidence it is siphoning resources from the DNC,” reported CNN. “All of the top-tier OFA donors this year have been prolific supporters of the DNC in past years. But of the 13 who cut six-figure checks to OFA in the first half of this year, only three gave to the DNC over the same period, according to a review of records from the Center for Responsive Politics.”
So the DNC owes $18.1 million and the Republican National Committee (RNC) is sitting on $12.5 million. Does that ironic disparity reflect any underlying truths about the two parties’ differing fiscal philosophies? Or is the RINO-dominated RNC money just better at coordinating its donors’ political “investments?”

What Is Obama’s Real Agenda With Islam And Iran?

What Is Obama’s Real Agenda With Islam And Iran?
Last Friday, President Barack Obama worked to mend fences with Iran — the greatest criminal nation on the planet. In his 15-minute phone conversation with Iranian President Hasan Rouhani, Obama lost track of the fact that Iran is a proponent of Islamic law and is a prime sponsor of terrorism around the world.
Obama can’t see Iran’s true color: red, stained with the crimson blood of Jews and Christians who won’t accept the Prophet Muhammad and Islamic domination in the Mideast and beyond.
It is the sad truth that Obama buckled under Iranian pressure only weeks after an Iranian official promised to slaughter Americans. Qassem Soleimani, the head of Iran’s Quds Forces, told Iran’s Assembly of Experts, a group that chooses the Supreme Leader, that Iran will provide brutal support to save the Syrian regime.
According to The Daily Caller, a former high official even made threats against our President:

[I]n an unprecedented statement, a former Iranian official has warned of mass abductions and brutal killings of American citizens around the world and the rape and killing of one of Obama’s daughters should the United States attack Syria.
Alireza Forghani, the former governor of southern Iran’s Kish Province, threw down the gauntlet last week. Forghani is an analyst and strategy specialist in the supreme leader’s camp and closely aligned with Mehdi Taeb, who heads the regime’s Ammar Strategic Base, a radical think thank (sic), and thus speaks with the blessing of the Islamic regime.
“Hopefully Obama will be pigheaded enough to attack Syria, and then we will see the … loss of U.S. interests [through terrorist attacks],” he threatened. “In just 21 hours [after the attack on Syria], a family member of every U.S. minister [department secretary], U.S. ambassadors, U.S. military commanders around the world will be abducted. And then 18 hours later, videos of their amputation will be spread [around the world].”
It reads like something from medieval times; yet it doesn’t seem to bother the President, as he continually displays his Islamic loyalties. Such is the leadership under Obama, who treats terrorists like Republicans and Republicans like terrorists.

The Real Iran

Rouhani succeeded former Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who said Jews are “the most detested people in all humanity.” He also called the extermination of 6 million Jews during World War II “a myth,” claiming that Jews have played up Nazi atrocities during the Holocaust.
Iran produces only extremist leaders. During his State of the Union address in 2002, President George W. Bush said Iran and its “terrorist allies” are part of “an axis of evil, arming to threaten the peace of the world.” For more than three decades, Iran has been the primary sponsor of Hezbollah, which when translated into English is the “Party of Allah.” Based in Lebanon, Hezbollah’s paramilitary wing is considered one of the largest rebel armies for uniting Islam. And it has a large following that wants to harm America.
A just-released Pew Research Survey shows that 62 percent of Palestinians say suicide bombing is justified. Reported Pew: “[I]n some countries, substantial minorities of Muslims say attacks on civilians are at least sometimes justified to defend Islam from its enemies; in the Palestinian territories, a majority of Muslims hold this view.”
Iran throws a lot of weight in the Muslim world and has done more to advocate Islamic extremism than any other power in the world, both in terms of money and ideology. But exactly what do Iran and its brand of Islam stand for?
To get a bearing on just how crazy Revolutionary Iran is, consider the words of its revolutionary and spiritual leader, Ayatollah Khomeini as reportedly found in Tahrir al-Vasileh:
A man can have sex with animals such as sheep, cows, camels and so on. However he should kill the animal after he has his orgasm. He should not sell the meat to the people in his own village, however selling the meat to the next door village should be fine.
According to a post on Patheos, Khomeini’s also wrote:

A man can have sexual pleasure from a child as young as a baby. However, he should not penetrate vaginally, but sodomising [sic] the child is acceptable. If a man does penetrate and damage the child then, he should be responsible for her subsistence all her life. This girl will not count as one of his four permanent wives and the man will not be eligible to marry the girl’s sister… It is better for a girl to marry at such a time when she would begin menstruation at her husband’s house, rather than her father’s home. Any father marrying his daughter so young will have a permanent place in heaven.
The teachings of the Ayatollah are as powerful today as they were when he spearheaded the revolution in 1979. His sick and hateful ideology influences millions of people.
But nobody protests louder than Western Muslims and their liberal apologists, who always want to paint Islam as a reasonable, peaceful people. The propaganda was spewing about last week at the U.N. General Assembly meeting. Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif declared that, “Islam is a religion of peace, compassion and brotherhood.” I expect that when Sharif got back to Pakistan, he was subjected to a lashing; because he doesn’t seem schooled in the most important subject taught to any Muslim: the Quran:
  • “God’s curse be upon the infidels! Evil is that for which they have bartered away their souls. To deny God’s own revelation, grudging that He should reveal His bounty to whom He chooses from among His servants! They have incurred God’s most inexorable wrath. An ignominious punishment awaits the unbelievers.” Quran 2:89-2:90
  • “Slay them wherever you find them. Drive them out of the places from which they drove you. Idolatry is worse than carnage.” Quran 2:190-2:191
  • “Muhammad is God’s apostle. Those who follow him are ruthless to the unbelievers but merciful to one another.” Quran 48:29 
Those are hardly the words of the New Testament. Of course, liberals can argue these words are taken out of context (not sure what context it would be OK to proclaim such things, but so be it). But before anyone gets too defensive about Islam, take a look at what “good” Muslims have done recently, specifically in Saudi Arabia.
The House of Saud has a 70-year relationship with the United States and has been a major provider of petroleum to the free world. Without a doubt, Saudi oil helped build modern Western societies; and the Kingdom has been a stabilizing force in the Mideast. Yet Saudi Arabians do not have the liberties we take for granted, and they live in a society we would never tolerate. One incident that illustrates my point was a fire at a girls’ school in Mecca on March 11, 2002.
As the smoke billowed and flames spread, students and teachers began to run for the exits. There was just one problem; the school was patrolled on the outside by the Saudi religious police who were responsible for “educating” females in the Kingdom. The zealots had a serious problem: The girls and women fleeing didn’t have the good sense to cover themselves from head to toe before rushing out.
According to eyewitnesses some of the “holy ones” beat the girls to force them back into the school so they could retrieve their full gowns, some of which were probably already on fire. Then they blocked the doors. Then firefighters arrived and began to help some of the students and teachers escape. So what did the religious police do? They started beating up the firefighters. The same treatment was given to parents who arrived to help free their children from the flames. The teachers did the best they could; but when it was all over, there were 15 dead and 50 others badly injured.

This happened just 11 years ago in a moderate Muslim country — at least moderate when compared to Iran. None of that seems to concern Obama, who appears to be all ears when it comes to opening diplomatic relations with Tehran. The question we should all be asking ourselves is: Why?
Perhaps King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia knows the answer. Abdullah was one of the first to congratulate Obama on his election victory in the autumn of 2008. A couple days later, the king was in New York for a U.N. session. On Nov. 7 and within minutes of Abdullah’s arrival at Kennedy airport, the President-elect phoned him.
Robert Lacey writes of that conversation in his book Inside the Kingdom: Kings, Clerics, Modernists, Terrorists and the Struggle for Saudi Arabia:
The call went on for around seven minutes, and it finished with Abdullah expressing the wish that the two leaders might meet and talk face-to-face before too long — “Inshallah” (“If it be God’s will”).
“Inshallah,” echoed Obama, making use of the pious Islamic expression with which he was obviously familiar.
Later the king recounted some details of the conversation to a group of Saudis who had assembled to welcome him to Manhattan.
“I clearly heard him say ‘Inshallah,’” mused Abdullah to the little gathering.
“God willing,” he added wryly, “we shall make a Muslim of him yet.”
In this writer’s opinion, Abdullah didn’t have to work very hard at it.

Liberals Going Off the Rails Fearful GOP May Be Winning Argument

[ Congressman George Miller]
You can always tell when someone is losing an argument. He or she resorts to personal attacks and outrageous rhetoric. More often than not the tactic works since the general public is used to arguing in the same way.
California Democrat congressman George Miller repeatedly accused his GOP colleagues of waging “jihad” on Americans.
On PoliticsNation, a typical MSNC tirade show, Joe Madison, “The Black Eagle” who can be heard on Sirius Satellite radio, called Rush Limbaugh a “fat ass” for comparing programs like ObamaCare to “drug addiction.”
When you can’t deal with a person’s arguments, denigrate him or her. Look what they tried to do to Sarah Palin because she was connecting with the American people. The media destroyed her (at least they tried to), the same media that are propping up Obama and telling us how intelligent he is.
I know a lot of very intelligent people, many with earned PhDs, and I can assure you that I would not want some of them to run for political office. Intellect does not always lead to good policy decisions, especially when it’s power and control they want.
David Halberstam’s The Best and the Brightest was published in 1972. “The focus of the book is on the foreign policy crafted by the academics and intellectuals who were in John F. Kennedy’s administration, and the consequences of those policies in Vietnam.” The phrase “the best and the brightest” referred to President Kennedy’s “‘whiz kids’ — leaders of industry and academia brought into the Kennedy administration — whom Halberstam characterized as arrogantly insisting on ‘brilliant policies that defied common sense’ . . .”
These so-called intellectuals got us into Vietnam, got more than 58,000 Americans and 1.5 million Vietnamese killed. The iconic scene of people desperately trying to escape by helicopter is a fitting image of what some of the “best and the brightest” can do.
You know Madison is worried since he brings up the issue of race multiple times. It’s always a winner in a losing argument. For the record, Madison is black.
“Let me tell you,” Madison said, “they just can’t stand the fact that they’ve got a very smart, intelligent black man that has out-thought them, out-campaigned them, beat them twice without any controversy.”
He wasn’t finished with the race thing. “So here you have these folks who primarily live in these lily white congressional districts for the most part, and then they’re trying to use black vernacular to try to sound like they’re hip and that somehow Obama is just too black to be president of the United States.”

Ted Cruz & Mike Lee: Commanders of the Conservative Army

Erick Erickson
Whenever a conservative says anything critical of the pukey leadership in the Republican Party — whenever they do it — what do we hear?
“Circular firing squad.”
“This is not helpful.”
“They violated the 11th Commandment.”
“Let’s not make our 80% friend our enemy.”
“They won’t consider the end game.”
They vomit this stuff up every single time any conservative points out how badly they are selling out.
So you can laugh that these same establishment guys have run off to the Politico to tell the world just how badly they beat up Ted Cruz in their closed door meeting and he has no end game.
Remember, this is the closed door meeting Karl Rove said Ted Cruz and Mike Lee needed to sell on fighting. How can you sell a fight to a bunch of back stabbing cowards? That is exactly what they are.

John Cornyn is running ads in Texas claiming he wants to defund Obamacare, but he is selling out.
Richard Burr is telling North Carolina he is in it to win the fight against Obamacare, but telling everyone who will listen that Ted Cruz’s strategy is the dumbest strategy every foisted on Washington.
Mitch McConnell is out before he is in before he is out. Never has a politician tried so hard to be only a little bit pregnant.
Behind the scenes these and other Senators are attacking Cruz and Lee and planning, even now, to sell out conservatives on the fight against Obamacare.
Read just one Senator’s quote:
“It was very evident to everyone in the room that Cruz doesn’t have a strategy – he never had a strategy, and could never answer a question about what the end-game was,” said one senator who attended the meeting. “I just wish the 35 House members that have bought the snake oil that was sold could witness what was witnessed today at lunch.”
According to Bob Corker — at least I assume it is Corker given the similar language to statements Corker has made publicly — Cruz has no strategy.
Here is what no strategy looks like:
  • Get the American public excited enough to pressure the GOP into forcing the issue.
  • Filibuster for 21 hours to direct even more attention to Obamacare.
  • See a sharp turn in polling against Obamacare.
  • Watch the government shut down.
  • Suggest the House of Representatives pass a bunch of funding resolutions for various parts of government.
  • Have the House of Representatives do exactly that.
  • Watch Harry Reid and Barack Obama implode before the press handling this.
Now, here is Bob Corker, Lamar Alexander, John Cornyn, and Mitch McConnell’s strategy to stop Obamacare:
Some strategy that is.
Cruz has led. In fact, he and Mike Lee have together led so well they’ve seen the House of Representatives do exactly as they have suggested.
Maybe these squishes should just let Cruz and Lee lead. They’re doing better than McConnell and Cornyn.

This is About Shutting Down Obamacare

Erick Erickson
Congressmen, this is about shutting down Obamacare.
Democrats keep talking about our refusal to compromise. They don’t realize our compromise is defunding Obamacare. We actually want to repeal it.
This is it. Our endgame is to leave the whole thing shut down until the President defunds Obamacare. And if he does not defund Obamacare, we leave the whole thing shut down.
After all, if the government is not spending any money, when we collide with the debt ceiling in two weeks, we should not have to worry since the government is spending so little money.
This shutdown is about Obamacare. Congressmen, do not take your eyes off the ball. This is not about a grand bargain to restructure the tax code, reform entitlements, or raise revenue.
This is about shutting down Obamacare.
On Monday, Harry Reid fretted about Republicans hurting kids with cancer. On Tuesday, when asked why he would not then open back up the National Institutes of Health to help kids with cancer, Reid couldn’t think of a reason why he would do that.

The Democrats pitted themselves against World War II veterans, spitefully shutting down a memorial otherwise open 24 hours a day.
The President on Tuesday evening practically begged the stock market to crash to scare Republicans.
The media, try as it may to ignore these stories, cannot ignore them. Democrats are putting their feet in their mouths and swallowing.
We are learning the President has a White House staff of 90 to take care of him and his family. Right now, only 15 people are there helping.
We’ve learned 93% of the EPA is considered non-essential.
We’ve learned 94% of the Department of Education is considered non-essential.
We’ve learned that after three years of trying, the government still cannot get a website going to register people for healthcare.

We have also learned there are some Republicans who are willing and ready to sell out.
Congressmen, do not underestimate our desire to toss you out of office if you betray us. We are learning a lot more about government and it confirms just how wasteful it is. But this is a fight about Obamacare. Do not confuse why you are fighting.
Hold the line. Undermine Obamacare. Shut it down.

Video: Movie Review: “Grace Unplugged”

oped: Alrighty then time for a short break from politicking...:)
"Grace Unplugged" was in production long before the latest signing starlet with Christian roots shocked the world with her performance, so the producers aren't talking about "you know who." The movie is realistic without being shocking and portrays the hope that is so often missing in the tabloid stories.

Video: Showdown On “Meet The Press”, And Ted Cruz Doesn’t Back Down

NBC’s David Gregory repeatedly pressed Republican Texas Senator Ted Cruz Sunday, over his strategy aimed at defunding Obama’s landmark healthcare law.

The Comatose GOP…. Time To Pull The Plug!

Boehner Crying1 The Comatose GOP.... Time to pull the plug!
(The following was posted in response to an excellent article at yesterday’s Freedom Outpost website. It is entitled “67 Million Missing from ObamaCare Slush Fund.”)
While this is just business as usual for our flagrantly illegitimate and abusive “administration,” our outrage here should be with the Republicans whom we continue to elect to “represent” us. They do not. Is there any reason why we should have to email or call them to ASK them to do something about this? If we had a mid-level manager in a company we owned, who was involved with the budget, and he didn’t become irate over something like this, he would be summarily dismissed.

This is true of dozens of issues – Benghazi, the IRS Tea Party Prosecution Scandal, Voter Fraud in the last election, the “Justice” Department’s openly-announced refusal to enforce DOMA (or to investigate Black-on-White voter intimidation or crime), Fast and Furious, Trayvon Martin (with civil unrest actually being fomented by OUR government over this patent fraud), the “Arab Spring” (unrest being fomented by OUR State Department with the help of Google – all to put the Muslim Brotherhood in power), the NDAA, Homeland “Security” buying billions of rounds of high caliber ordinance, FEMA Camps all over the nation, the militarizing of our police, the institution of Martial Law (Boston), the illegal NSA gathering of personal information on every U.S. Citizen, the intimidation and prosecution of whistleblowers, the failure to protect our borders or prosecute illegal aliens, the absolute and abusive invasion of privacy and charade of Airport “security,” and the patent absurdity of disarming our soldiers on our own military bases, while refusing to prosecute (much less punish) those who slaughter our soldiers (in the name of Allah) as a result, even refusing to call it an act of terror. I could go on and on, and all of this is just off the top of my head!

WHAT ARE ANY OF OUR REPUBLICAN “REPRESENTATIVES” DOING ABOUT ANY OF THIS? You know the answer, don’t you? And they shouldn’t need to be told or begged to do any of it. Once more, this would be grounds for dismissal if an employee at any level didn’t address such obvious outrages on his or her watch!
Time for a Third Party. The People and their (our) Constitution are no longer being represented. Notice that the GOP is now attacking Ted Cruz, one of only three GOP Senators worth their salt (Lee and Paul being the other two). The GOP would be laughable if they weren’t specifically there to enrich themselves at the People’s expense. That being the case (and it is a matter of public record for the members of BOTH parties), it is absolutely time to change horses!
The time for compromising the Rule of Law, while simultaneously tolerating the abuse of it – by those sworn to uphold it – is past. The GOP is dead! Only the clinically insane would continue to vote for these people while expecting them to do something different from what they have ALWAYS done!
Has John Boehner represented us after WE gave him a clear majority in the House? To this day, he is cutting deals with our illegal “president” over ObamaCare, in direct opposition to our clearly-expressed will! His performance is disgraceful…and yet the newly-elected and numerically-strengthened Republican Majority immediately re-elected him as their “leader” upon being swept into office by US, the true Conservatives, eleven months ago! The Republican Congress may be the only group of people on Earth more comatose than those of us who continue to elect them!

We must not expect that those who feel the need to compromise their message when campaigning (to appease the Left and their media minions) will somehow feel (and do) otherwise once elected. We need men and women – and a PARTY – who are willing to speak the whole truth and stand by it, KNOWING two things: That the now-Marxist “Mainstream” (please!) Media, receiving its marching orders from Soros and surrogates, will seek to destroy them, while REAL Americans will unanimously stand by them!
Only by speaking and standing by the truth will we be free. There is no other way. Only the Brave are willing to do so, however…and that starts with US…yep, you and me. The ONLY thing that matters in the short or long term is that WE be willing to speak and stand by the truth – individually first, then collectively – simply because it is the RIGHT thing to do. Until we do, we will continue to be “represented” by people who are also unwilling to do so!
This isn’t complicated….

Video: Obama Admin Produced Fake News Of Syrian Dictator Being Toppled 


The failed novelist, once Obama speech writer, now National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes wrote a series of phony newscasts showing Syrian president Bashar al-Assad being overthrown.
Huge movie sets of the al-Assad presidential palace were built in Saudi Arabia, overseen by our own CIA, in which doubles of al-Assad and his generals are depicted fleeing the Free Syrian Army.

The Hollywood-like operation had an army of special effects crew, stuntmen, and makeup artists that rivaled most studios.
The phony footage was to be fed through Arab League-controlled satellites, preempting regular Syrian newscasts, making the Syrian people think their government had just been toppled.
The CIA-controlled CNN would then re-broadcast the phony footage, causing the world to think al-Assad had been overthrown.  While Syria was mired in anarchy, a real coup would take place; and Obama would ride in on his white horse, installing another Islamic regime.
The plan, scheduled to occur on June 15, 2012, never happened because Syrian officials got wind of it and put a stop to it. The White House and CNN then buried the story down the memory hole and created a new fiction: al-Assad’s August 21, 2013 chemical weapons attack, also now proved to be fake, perpetrated by Obama’s own al-Qaeda rebels in order to warrant a U.S. bombing campaign.
This according to Tony Cartalucci’s book, War on Syria: Gateway to World War III and his subsequent blockbuster articles.
Watch Western Center for Journalism’s exclusive video for details.
Eagle Rising readers will not be surprised to hear me explicitly say that I am a conservative before I am a Republican. To that end, you’ve seen my perspective on certain issues as I’ve supported conservative Republicans and taken moderate and RINO Republicans to task for their squishiness. In light of that, over the last few weeks, a thought has been percolating in my mind. “Something is happening within the GOP, and it smells fishy.” These thoughts all came to a head over the last couple of days as I’ve watched and listened to Republican members of Congress attack Ted Cruz more viciously than any Democrat.
If you search the internet looking for examples of Democrats attacking Ted Cruz, you’ll find them. Some are more aggressive or colorful than others, but the attacks getting all of the press are from Republicans. The Republicans who were not happy with Cruz for his attempts at defunding Obamacare, said they disagreed with his “strategy” because he could not win. They also felt like his strategy would paint them as obstructive and out of touch. Maybe that was all true and correct…


The acceptance of open homosexuals in the military is increasingly having the effect that many conservatives anticipated, as Christians and anyone who opposes homosexual "marriage" are finding that they are being punished for their views.
A group of airmen from Lackland Air Force Base recently attended a packed meeting at Village Parkway Baptist Church in San Antonio, where they expressed concerns about a rise in intimidation and persecution from homosexual commanders and their supporters, according to Fox News.
Pastor Steve Branson heard from at least 80 airmen about religious persecution going on at Lackland.
"There is an atmosphere of intimidation at Lackland Air Force Base," Branson said. "Gay commanders and officers are pushing their agenda on the airmen. There is a culture of fear in the military and it’s gone to a new level with the issue of homosexuality."
