Thomas Sowell: Paul Ryan’s argument for immigration reform ‘utter nonsense’

Thomas Sowell: Paul Ryan’s argument for immigration reform ‘utter nonsense’

On Tuesday’s broadcast of Laura Ingraham’s radio show, economist and Intellectuals and Race author Thomas Sowell blasted Wisconsin Republican Rep. Paul Ryan argument for immigration reform.

During a June appearance on Ingraham’s show, Ryan had said the U.S. might face labor shortages unless immigration policy is overhauled.

“That’s incredible,” Sowell said. “I mean —first of all to an economist, it is incredible to speak about shortages without talking about prices, in this case wages…You know there, there have been so many predictions of shortages of so many occupations and the shortages don’t materialize. And why not? Because if there is a shortage, the wage rate goes up. That attracts in more people and lo and behold, the jobs are filled.”

“In agriculture, the farmers would obviously prefer to get workers who get low pay rather than workers they have to pay a higher wage,” he continued. “And as long as there are an unlimited supply of farm workers coming in from Mexico, they will never have to raise the wages very much. They say Americans won’t do these jobs. These are jobs Americans have done for generations, if not centuries. And it’s a time when millions of Americans are out of work, and are looking for any kind of work. And so this is utter nonsense.”

Sowell also argued for a “rational” immigration policy that would take an immigrant’s nationality into account.

“They constantly talk about immigrants in the abstract,” he said. “You know, there are no such thing as abstract immigrants. There are immigrants from country a, b, c, d. They are radically different. People coming in from some countries almost never go on welfare. Immigrants coming in from other countries go on welfare to a great extent. If we’re going to have a rational immigration policy, then we have to be able to decide what people, what countries, what occupations — things like that, instead of rushing everything through.

“The other main thing though is that if we don’t control the borders, we don’t have an immigration policy because regardless of what policy you put on paper, if people can just walk across the border when they darn well please, then your policy means nothing. The other thing that bothers me is the Republicans seem to think we will give — illegal immigrants citizenship if they do a, b or c. Democrats say x, y and z. I don’t know why we need promise anybody citizenship before we get control of the borders and have time to sit down and think and look at the facts, and then try to draw up some rational policy.”

Wild Thing's comment.............

Why is it we have to keep hearing about caving in and giving amnesty of any kind to the illegals to those breaking our laws of immigration. We had to blast emails etc at G.W. Bush to try and stop him from doing amnesty and now again.
Reagan did it and afterward said it was a mistake. Politicians should have learned it did not work and it only gets more votes for democrats.

Sen. Jeff Sessions says House Republican members should stand up to House GOP leadership to oppose their immigration “principles.”

Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), the ranking member of the Senate Budget Committee, said on Thursday evening that House Republican members should stand up to House GOP leadership to oppose their immigration “principles.”

Sessions said the “principles” represent exactly what was contained in the previously-passed Senate “Gang of Eight” immigration bill.

“Once again, we have the same recycled talking points—crafted, it would appear, with the help of the same consultants and special interests,” Sessions said in a statement. “Each time, the talking points are followed by legislation that fails to match the promises—legislation that, at bottom, ensures only the amnesty and not the enforcement. The leadership talking points look like an attempted repackaging of the tired Gang-of-Eight-style formula that has been proposed, rejected, and re-proposed for years."

"It is no surprise then that Senator Schumer and former Speaker Pelosi are so encouraged by these developments," he continued. "But while Democrat leaders and interest groups appear satisfied, this document was not voted upon by the GOP conference and clearly does not represent the consensus of Republican members. Is it not time we pushed aside the stale proposals stitched together in concert with the same lobbyists, and asked what is in the best interests of the hardworking American citizen—and the nation?”

Specifically, Sessions laid out three manners in which the House GOP leadership’s plan reflect the Senate Gang of Eight bill: amnesty before securing the border and enforcing America’s interior immigration laws; a massive increase in legal immigration “that is reducing wages and increasing unemployment”; and an offer of “eventual citizenship” to illegal aliens inside America right now.

“Rank-and-file House Republicans are the last line of defense for working Americans,” Sessions said. “Now is the time for rank-and-file House Republicans to claim the leadership mantle and to say, firmly: our goal is to transition millions of struggling Americans from welfare and joblessness to work and rising wages."

"The president has not only dismantled enforcement but has delivered for a small group of special interests and CEOs by forcing through the Senate legislation that drastically surges the future flow of new immigrant workers competing against unemployed Americans," he stated. "There is a reason why these increases are never mentioned in the slick TV ads and radio spots: the American people reject them."

"Americans earning under $30,000 prefer a reduction to an increase in current record immigration levels by a 3-1 margin," Sessions explained. "Republicans have the chance to be the one party giving voice to the real-world concerns of the everyday worker whose wages have been flat or falling for more than 10 years.”

Sessions also called on House leadership to actually listen to federal immigration law enforcement officers asking Congress for help in enforcing laws.

“House leaders should support—not ignore—the immigration officers pleading for help,” Sessions said. “They should stand with—not against—unemployed American workers. And they should expose—not join—the president’s campaign to pass an immigration plan that will hollow out our shrinking middle class.”

Senator Mike Lee: Secure the Border Before Dealing with Illegal Aliens in America

Mike Lee: Secure the Border Before Dealing with Illegal Aliens in America

Appearing on Fox News Thursday morning, Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) said that he thinks House Republicans should insist that the border actually be secured before they even consider discussing anything to do with “legal status” or citizenship for illegal aliens in America.

“In order to reform our immigration code, and I agree that we need to reform it, we need to undertake this in a step-by-step fashion, and the very first thing we need to do is secure the border,” Lee said when asked for his reaction to the drama unfolding at the House GOP conference retreat. “And we also need to reform our antiquated, outdated visa system – our legal immigration processes."

"Once those things are done, once those things are in place and have been verified, then we’ll be in a better place to figure out how to treat the eleven million people who are here illegally with dignity and respect for the rule of law," he explained. "But these things can’t be wrapped together all at once. We need to undertake those first two steps first and complete them before we move on to the third.”

Lee’s point is that House Republicans should not pass a group of bills all at once dealing with all the parts of a comprehensive immigration reform solution, then label such a legislative package as “piecemeal” or “step-by-step.” Instead, Lee argues that real step-by-step or piecemeal immigration reform is when the House moves to secure the border and forces the Democrat-controlled Senate and President Barack Obama’s administration to pass and implement actual border security and interior enforcement measures.

Lee and Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) laid that case out in a joint op-ed for Breitbart News last fall.

What House GOP leadership is doing runs counter to that plan. According to the Wall Street Journal, they intend to introduce a plan that has all the “major planks” of the Senate’s 2013 “Gang of Eight” bill. Even though they will likely split it into a series of bills, leadership is expected to try to pass them all at the same time, meaning they will be implemented together – leaving open the almost certain likelihood that the Obama administration ignores the border security and interior enforcement parts of reform.

Senator Ted Cruz says Big mistake to support amnesty at any time

Ted Cruz says that anyone in favor of the so-called immigration reform bill "should go ahead and put a 'Harry Reid for Majority Leader' bumper sticker on their car."


"Right now, Republican leadership in both chambers is aggressively urging members to stand down on virtually every front: on the continuing resolution, on the budget, on the farm bill, on the debt ceiling,” says Cruz in a statement first sent to Breitbart.

They may or may not be right, but their argument is that we should focus exclusively on Obamacare and on jobs. In that context, why on earth would the House dive into immigration right now? It makes no sense, unless you're Harry Reid. Republicans are poised for an historic election this fall--a conservative tidal wave much like 2010. The biggest thing we could do to mess that up would be if the House passed an amnesty bill--or any bill perceived as an amnesty bill--that demoralized voters going into November. Rather than responding to the big-money lobbying on K Street, we need to make sure working-class Americans show up by the millions to reject Obamacare and vote out the Democrats. Amnesty will ensure they stay home.

Cruz added that granting amnesty now--while wrong in his opinion at any time--would ensure Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid remains in his position in after the 2014 elections.

Cruz concludes, "Amnesty is wrong in any circumstance, and if we are going to fix our broken immigration system--and we should--it makes much more sense to do so next year, so that we are negotiating a responsible solution with a Republican Senate majority rather than with Chuck Schumer. Anyone pushing an amnesty bill right now should go ahead and put a 'Harry Reid for Majority Leader' bumper sticker on their car, because that will be the likely effect if Republicans refuse to listen to the American people and foolishly change the subject from Obamacare to amnesty.”

In California At Least 43 Convicted Criminals Working As Obamacare Navigators and YOU give them your personal information

California: At Least 43 Convicted Criminals Working As Obamacare Navigators

At least 43 convicted criminals are working as Obamacare navigators in California, including three individuals with records of significant financial crimes.

Although some of the offenses are decades old, and although convicted criminals account for only 1 percent of the 3,729 certified enrollment counselors in the state, Californians still have good cause to be concerned about their privacy.

Even a single crooked navigator could do significant harm to the public. That’s because when navigators sign consumers up for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act, they have access to lots of private information, including Social Security numbers, home addresses, and financial data — basically, everything on the wish list of identity thieves and fraudsters. Navigators also are likely to work with a population that is more vulnerable than average.

Limited statistics released by Covered California — the state’s new health-insurance exchange — showed that one navigator has repeat forgery offenses — one in 1982, then another in 1994, with a burglary in between. Another had two forgery convictions in 1988, in addition to a domestic-violence charge a decade later. Another committed welfare fraud in 1999 and had shoplifted on at least two prior occasions. Since 2000, individuals now working as navigators have committed crimes including child abuse, battery, petty theft, and evading a police officer. At least seven navigators have multiple convictions.

Not Letting Obama be his boss.....Syria's Assad Gives Up Less Than 5% of Its Chemical Weapons Arsenal

Not Letting Obama be his boss.....Syria's Assad Gives Up Less Than 5% of Its Chemical Weapons Arsenal

Exclusive: Syria has shipped out less than 5 percent of chemical weapons

Syria has given up less than 5 percent of its chemical weapons arsenal and will miss next week’s deadline to send all toxic agents abroad for destruction, sources familiar with the matter said on Wednesday.

The deliveries, in two shipments this month to the northern Syrian port of Latakia, totaled 4.1 percent of the roughly 1,300 tonnes of toxic agents reported by Damascus to the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), said the sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity.

“It’s not enough and there is no sign of more,” one source briefed on the situation said.

The internationally backed operation, overseen by a joint OPCW-United Nations mission, is now 6-8 weeks behind schedule. Damascus needs to show it is still serious about relinquishing its chemical weapons, the sources told Reuters.

Failure to eliminate its chemical weapons could expose Syria to sanctions, although these would have to be supported in the U.N. Security Council by Russia and China, which have so far refused to back such measures against President Bashar al-Assad.

The deal under which Syria undertook to eliminate its chemical arsenal stopped the United States and its allies from launching bombing raids to punish Assad for a chemical attack last August and made clear the limits to international action against him.

Obama's State of Union address gets lowest ratings of SOTU addresses in 20 years

Record-low ratings for Obama's State of the Union address

Fewer than 33.3 million Americans watched President Obama’s State of the Union address on television last night, the lowest turnout since President Clinton’s final State of the Union address in 2000, according to newly released Nielsen ratings.

Viewership for Obama’s State of the Union addresses has been in decline since 2009, when he drew 52.4 million television viewers. 48.0 million watched on television in 2010, 42.8 million in 2011, 37.8 million in 2012 and 33.5 millino in 2013. This year’s speech now replaces last year’s as the second-lowest rated since Nielsen began recording viewership in 1993.

Nielsen’s totals are based off viewership for CBS, ABC, NBC, FOX, Azteca, Fox Business, Fox News Channel, CNN, MSNBC, CNBC, Al Jazeera America, Galavision and Mun2. They do not include digital livestreams.

Ted Cruz: The Imperial Presidency of Barack Obama - Great article by Cruz

Ted Cruz: The Imperial Presidency of Barack Obama

The Wall Street Journal

Of all the troubling aspects of the Obama presidency, none is more dangerous than the president’s persistent pattern of lawlessness, his willingness to disregard the written law and instead enforce his own policies via executive fiat. On Monday, Mr. Obama acted unilaterally to raise the minimum wage paid by federal contracts, the first of many executive actions the White House promised would be a theme of his State of the Union address Tuesday night.

The president’s taste for unilateral action to circumvent Congress should concern every citizen, regardless of party or ideology. The great 18th-century political philosopher Montesquieu observed: “There can be no liberty where the legislative and executive powers are united in the same person, or body of magistrates.” America’s Founding Fathers took this warning to heart, and we should too.

Rule of law doesn’t simply mean that society has laws; dictatorships are often characterized by an abundance of laws. Rather, rule of law means that we are a nation ruled by laws, not men. That no one—and especially not the president—is above the law. For that reason, the U.S. Constitution imposes on every president the express duty to “take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed.”

Yet rather than honor this duty, President Obama has openly defied it by repeatedly suspending, delaying and waiving portions of the laws he is charged to enforce. When Mr. Obama disagreed with federal immigration laws, he instructed the Justice Department to cease enforcing the laws. He did the same thing with federal welfare law, drug laws and the federal Defense of Marriage Act.

On many of those policy issues, reasonable minds can disagree. Mr. Obama may be right that some of those laws should be changed. But the typical way to voice that policy disagreement, for the preceding 43 presidents, has been to work with Congress to change the law. If the president cannot persuade Congress, then the next step is to take the case to the American people. As President Reagan put it: “If you can’t make them see the light, make them feel the heat” of electoral accountability.

President Obama has a different approach. As he said recently, describing his executive powers: “I’ve got a pen, and I’ve got a phone.” Under the Constitution, that is not the way federal law is supposed to work.

The Obama administration has been so brazen in its attempts to expand federal power that the Supreme Court has unanimously rejected the Justice Department’s efforts to expand federal power nine times since January 2012. [...]

That would be wrong—and it is the Obama precedent that is opening the door for future lawlessness. As Montesquieu knew, an imperial presidency threatens the liberty of every citizen. Because when a president can pick and choose which laws to follow and which to ignore, he is no longer a president.

NBC Poll Finds Top Words Americans Use To Describe Country Under Obama: “Divided,” “Troubled,” “Deteriorating”

NBC Poll Finds Top Words Americans Use To Describe Country Under Obama: “Divided,” “Troubled,” “Deteriorating”

As President Barack Obama enters his sixth year in the White House, 68 percent of Americans say the country is either stagnant or worse off since he took office, according to the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.

Just 31 percent say the country is better off, and a deep pessimism continues to fuel the public’s mood. Most respondents used words like “divided,” “troubled,” and “deteriorating” to describe the current state of the nation.

On the eve of Tuesday’s State of the Union address, more than six-in-10 Americans believe that the nation is headed in the wrong direction and 70 percent are dissatisfied with the economy.

Only 28 percent believe the country is headed in the right direction, while 63 percent say it’s on the wrong track.

What’s more, 71 percent are dissatisfied with the state of the economy (although more than 60 percent say they’re satisfied with their own financial situation).

And when respondents were asked which one or two words best describe the current state of the nation, the top answers were all negative: “divided” (37 percent), “troubled” (23 percent), and “deteriorating” (21 percent).

Exclusive--Tea Party Movement to Celebrate Five Years of Victories

Exclusive--Tea Party Movement to Celebrate Five Years of Victories

Breitbart News has learned that the Tea Party movement will celebrate its five-year anniversary with a blockbuster event on February 27 in Washington, D.C. that will bring together Tea Party conservatives in Congress with local activists and movement leaders from across the nation.

The Tea Party Patriots will organize the event that will reflect on why the movement formed, the significant victories it has achieved, and the road ahead as it comes under assault by the institutional left and even the Republican establishment that wants to preserve the status quo.

“It’s amazing to think of all the things we have accomplished in the last five years, but there is much more work ahead," Tea Party Patriots co-founder and National Coordinator Jenny Beth Martin told Breitbart News. "This event will be a great opportunity for assessment but more importantly to map out a strategy for the next five years and beyond.”

Speakers will include unwavering conservative Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT), who knocked off incumbent Sen. Bob Bennett in 2010 to show the strength of the Tea Party, D.C; Rep. Michelle Bachmann (R-MN), who led the fight against Obamacare in the House; Rep. Steve King (R-IA), who has been a fierce opponent of amnesty; and Reps. Jim Jordan (R-OH), Mark Meadows (R-NC), Jim Bridenstine (R-OK), and Matt Salmon (R-AZ).

Other speakers will include Tea Party activists like True the Vote's Catherine Englebrecht, who was targeted by the IRS after she was involved in the movement; Tea Party Patriots co-founder Jenny Beth Martin, who has relentlessly organized on behalf of Tea Party conservatives across the nation; Tea Party Patriots' Keli Carender, who organized the first protest just 72 hours after Rick Santelli's rant that galvanized the formation of the movement; Breitbart contributor Michael Patrick Leahy, who organized the first call to coordinate efforts among various Tea Party leaders; and local Tea Party leaders like Mark Herr.

The Tea Party movement officially formed in 2009 in response to the reckless and profligate bailouts and stimulus and immediately organized to fight against the government takeover of health care. Though Obamacare ultimately passed, much of what the Tea Party movement predicted would happen if the monstrous bill were adopted is coming to fruition.

The Tea Party is often described as a "vibrant movement of liberty loving Americans determined to protect their freedoms from an ever growing federal government" that seeks to "educate Americans about the importance of having a constitutionally limited, fiscally responsible government that preserves an environment for free markets to thrive."

While the IRS decided to target Tea Party groups as they were gaining strength, the Republican establishment initially dismissed the movement and thought it would dissipate even after the Tea Party dragged Republicans back to power in the House in the historic 2010 midterm elections.

That soon changed, though, as the Republican establishment--like Karl Rove's Crossroads groups and former Rep. Steve LaTourette's Main Street Partnership (a group that is funded by union money)--and groups frustrated by the Tea Party, like the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, became threatened by the movement's success. Instead of embracing the movement like former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), the Republican establishment decided to devote millions to wage war against the Tea Party.

Despite being attacked by Republicans, the movement continues to thrive and frustrate the ambitions of the political class in Washington, D.C.'s "Boomtown" despite the GOP establishment. Last week, the White House conceded that President Barack Obama was damaged in 2013 because of his legislative failures, particularly on amnesty, gun control, and excessive government spending on the Farm Bill and food stamps. The Tea Party movement fiercely opposed all of those initiatives while many in the Republican establishment did not.

Breitbart News Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow reflected on the importance of the Tea Party movement, saying that the mainstream press can be defeated and Americans can put the country back on the right track if the Tea Party movement is energized to combat the institutional advantages Democrats currently have in the media, academia, and pop culture.

The movement, which also despised the big-government domestic policies of the Bush administration, congealed after CNBC's Rick Santelli went on his rant on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange on February 19, 2009 against a federal government that he said promotes bad behavior with bailouts for its cronies while leaving taxpayers holding the bag.

The event will be held at the Hyatt Regency Capitol Hill from 8:30 AM to 4:00 PM EST on February 27.

Carender, the national grassroots coordinator for the Tea Party Patriots, said that Tea Party activists will not want to "miss this and I have no doubt that you will be inspired by the activists who are set to speak at the event."

"What is so great about our movement is that we have the greatest activists in the country," she told Breitbart News. "I just wish there was more time so that we could highlight all of them."

Mark Levin on the Republican Party....

"Reagan talked about it in the 70's when he was fighting the Ford wing of the Republican party. That is what we are fighting , this is another fight. It is the Ford wing of the Republican party vs. the Reaganites. That is what we conservatives are that is what the Tea party is all about. So it the rise of the Reaganites against the Ford wing once again. Phrase it any way we wish. These people are very comfortable with big government. Listen to Mitch McConnell he does not have a clue he does not have an argument, he does not have a cause.Nothing! Listen to Boehner, the only time he got emotional was when he was screaming at conservatives. "

Wild Thing's comment............

I tried typing out what Mark said, he is right and that is why we see some Republicans attacking conservatives that thank Ted Cruz and Mike Lee for example. Those doing the attacks are the Ford wing of the party. They call themselves conservatives but if they are why do they hate and attack the tea party, why do they hate anyone that calls a liberal Republican a rino. I have seen these Ford wing Republicans calling we conservatives morons, and a constant bashing across the board of those of us that want those we elect to stand strong and not weaken when they get to Washington.

Mark gave an excellent explanation of this IMO. It explains a lot to me, I have been shocked to see some people going after in full attack mode of let's say Ted Cruz when he was doing what we asked him to do and fight back against Obamacare. That was so horrible how some in our party have been attacking him. sheesh.And at the same time these same people seldom are attacking Obama or anyone on the left......... really weird and certainly not what a conservative would be doing.

Democrat Jim Moran Says Obamacare Is Unraveling & “We Don’t Have a Solution”

Democrat Jim Moran Says Obamacare Is Unraveling & “We Don’t Have a Solution” ( audio )

Virginia Rep. Jim Moran (D-VA) appeared on a local radio station on Friday to discuss ObamaCare, and let this slip out:

“I’m afraid that the millennials, if you will, are less likely to sign up. I think they feel more independent, I think they feel a little more invulnerable than prior generations,” Moran says. “But I don’t think we’re going to get enough young people signing up to make this bill work as it was intended to financially.”

There you go. Even Democrats are starting to realize that the ObamaCare death spiral is not just an inconvenient talking point among Republicans, but a serious ObamaCare crisis that has to be addressed. Don’t count on the Democrats to address it, either.

“I just don’t know how we’re going to do it frankly,” he says. “If we had a solution I’d be telling the president right now.”

Obamacare is so unpopular with younger Americans that 47 percent say they support recalling the president.

Horrible Obama Donor Tom Steyer Will Run Anti-Keystone Ad During Obama's State of the Union address

Horrible Obama Donor Tom Steyer Will Run Anti-Keystone Ad During Obama's State of the Union address

Billionaire Obama donor Tom Steyer, who is funding and leading the environmentalist campaign against the Keystone XL pipeline, will air an anti-Keystone ad on MSNBC before and after President Barack Obama's State of the Union address on Tuesday evening. The minute-long ad, entitled "Sucker Punch," claims that Canada may not send its tar sand oil through the pipeline to the U.S., and implies it will send the oil to China instead.

The ad closes on an image of Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper and former Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao, suggesting a sinister foreign collaboration to damage American interests. Last August, NBC rejected another Steyer-funded ad against the pipeline, a satirical take that fellow anti-Keystone activist and anti-globalization author Naomi Klein described regretfully at the time as "incredibly crappy and xenophobic."

Steyer has also been criticized for having made much of his fortune through investments in the oil and gas industry. Ezra Levant of Sun News wrote last year: "Steyer hasn't campaigned against OPEC oil. It's Canadian oil he's against. The same Canadian oil that helped make him rich." Steyer is also investing in a rival pipeline that would carry the oil to the Canadian province of British Columbia. He promises to donate the profits.

It is thought that Steyer's donations, and his ability to organize other donors in the San Francisco area, play a key role in the Obama administration's repeated decisions to delay the Keystone XL project. Steyer hosted fundraisers for Obama last year on Billionaires' Row in San Francisco at which the president famously predicted that Nancy Pelosi would recover the Speaker's gavel in the House of Representatives.

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX): " incompetent step for Republicans to focus on (amnesty for illegals) immigration."

Rep. Louie Gohmert: Republicans Should Not Focus on Immigration Right Now

GOP Leaders Angering Base Over Immigration So Close to Election Is “Baffling”

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) nailed it back in June of last year.

“I cannot imagine a more incompetent step right now than for Republicans to focus on immigration.”

As the GOP aide said in the article below – It is “baffling” that the Republicans could be so stupid.
House Conservatives Plot Takedown of GOP Leaders' Amnesty Plans

As House Republican leaders prepare an immigration proposal that could go much further towards amnesty than their prior public stances, conservative lawmakers are quietly plotting to push back.

Aides from over a dozen House offices secretly convened today on the Senate side of the Capitol at a meeting organized by Senator Jeff Sessions of Alabama, a top immigration hawk who has recently involved himself more aggressively in the affairs of the lower chamber.

“Over here in the Senate working for Senator Sessions, we learned a lot last year about the strategies employed by the powerful forces pushing bad immigration policies–and how to counter them,” reads a copy of the invitation to the meeting provided to Breitbart News by a House staffer.

Officials close to the matter say conservative critics of Speaker John Boehner’s planned immigration push are working to issue their own rival immigration principles to vie with the document Boehner is drafting.

“There is definitely a growing mood of confusion and aggravation among conservatives in the House over the immigration issue right now,” one House GOP aide said in an email to Breitbart News, adding that many on the right find the “political logic” of riling up the party’s base so close to a low-turnout midterm election baffling.

“Do we really want to just give up the midterms like this?” the aide asked.

Top GOP officials, meanwhile, are becoming bolder in their embrace of immigration reform. House Budget Committee chairman Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) emerged Thursday to discuss how House GOP leadership plans to bring immigration legislation to the floor, while on House Majority Whip Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA)--the third highest House GOP leadership official--endorsed "legal status" for illegal aliens on Wednesday.

At a recent Tea Party convention in South Carolina, conservative lawmakers expressed anger at Boehner's plan to push immigration reform after opponents seemed to stave off the effort last year.

“I don't know why in the world House Republicans would move on immigration legislation in 2014,” said Representative Jeff Duncan of South Carolina.

Representative Jim Bridenstine of Oklahoma said securing the border is a far more urgent priority than discussing the citizenship of illegal aliens in the U.S. because of the savage violence at the border.

“We have on the border of the United States 100,000 dead bodies just south of our border,” Bridenstine said. “We focus on Syria because that’s where the president wants to focus, while we have a crisis on our own southern border. And it’s because we have an insecure border.”

In a Thursday letter to House GOP conference chairwoman Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) requesting access to the retreat, U.S. Commission on Civil Rights member Peter Kirsanow said he would like to educate GOP lawmakers on how amnesty could hurt low-income workers disproportionately.

“President Obama’s new hobbyhorse is income inequality.' Ironically, one of the most effective ways to increase income inequality is increasing the number of interchangeable workers in a labor pool. That is exactly what encouraging illegal immigration and granting legal status to illegal immigrants does,” Kirsanow wrote.

Boehner's strong desire to push immigration reform in 2014 has become clearer in recent weeks after he hired a former top aide to Senator John McCain to work on immigration issues and began drafting a set of immigration “principles” to unveil as the GOP's position on the issue in coming days.

The Ohio Speaker is also riding a wave of momentum stemming from the government shutdown episode in October, when conservatives forced Boehner to take a hard line with President Obama but suffered standing in the GOP conference after the effort was perceived by many as unsuccessful. In the weeks that followed, Boehner easily rolled conservatives on the Ryan-Murray budget deal and, in 2014, on the recent omnibus spending bill.

Wild Thing's comment...........

Gohmert is so right about this, it is stupid and will kill our future elections.

I hope and pray my Republican party will not be so weak and cave in on this amnesty thing, it will go against us big time.

U.S. Rep. Jim Jordan will push for Hillary Clinton to testify again on Benghazi

Jordan will push for Clinton to testify again on Benghazi

U.S. Rep. Jim Jordan will continue to push this year for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and other officials to testify to the House Oversight Committee about the 2012 Benghazi, Libya, attack because he believes she is personally responsible.

Jordan wants to hear from Clinton, President Barack Obama’s national security advisor and former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice, and Clinton’s State Department Chief of Staff Cheryl Mills.

“My frustration is we haven’t had the three witnesses I think are critical,” Jordan said. “We will continue to push for them. I do believe, because there is a group of us that are going to push for this, I do believe they will be in front of the committee.”

In an interview Thursday with The Lima News, Jordan said Clinton is personally responsible for the attack, that she denied requests for more security.

“Yeah, she’s the boss,” Jordan said. “This is not France, this is not Great Britain, where you can rely on a handful of your security and rely on a host country to provide additional security. It’s Libya for goodness sake, and they’re treating it like an embassy in Canada. They knew if there was an attack on the compound, the hired help were going to drop their weapons and run or worst case fire on the good guys. So they said they needed more help. Hillary Clinton denied that.”

In a House report released in April on Benghazi, Republicans said Clinton personally signed off on cuts in security at the compound.

Wild Thing's comment...........

I sure hope this happens and I hope they really go after her about all of this.

Former Staff Member To Chuck Schumer Behind Dinesh D’Souza’s Indictment On Short List To Replace Eric Holder

Former Staff Member To Chuck Schumer Behind Dinesh D’Souza’s Indictment On Short List To Replace Eric Holder

The U.S. Attorney behind the indictment of conservative author and commentator Dinesh D’Souza, is a politically connected Obama appointee who has been talked about as a potential replacement for Attorney General Eric Holder.

Preet Bharara, a former staff member to Senator Chuck Schumer, helped lead the Senate Judiciary Committee investigation into the firing of U.S. attorneys by the Bush administration. As the U.S. Attorney for Southern District of New York, he has received glowing press accounts from the media for cracking down on insider trading.

D’Souza, whose movie “2016: Obama’s America,” based on the 2010 book “The Roots of Obama’s Rage” became a surprise box office hit during the 2012 election season, has been charged with campaign finance violations and is facing a $1,000,000 fine and up to 7 years in jail. His book and movie about the president’s background posited that his politics were driven by the anti-Western, anti-colonialist ideas of his Kenyan father.

Bharara has an undefeated record in prosecuting insider trading – 77 for 77 in convictions since taking over as the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York in August 2009, but in an unflattering profile in the New York Post in February of 2012, Fox Business Network senior correspondent Charles Gasparino wrote that Preet Bharara “is a guy with clear political ambitions, and he’s no Eliot Ness.”

At the time of the oped, the rumor mill out of Washington was saying Bharara was on the short list to replace the “scandal-tarred” Attorney General Eric Holder.

Gasparino wrote that according to his colleagues, Bharara is “a decent and smart man but one with a mediocre resume highlighted by five uneventful years as a federal prosecutor before joining the staff of Sen. Chuck Schumer.”

It was in Schumer’s office that Bharara made his political bones, burnishing his Democratic Party street cred as chief counsel in the Senate Judiciary Committee hearings into the Bush administration’s firings of US attorneys.

While the hearings that Bharara helped conduct made the firings look sordid, the legal impact was pretty minimal. For all the political hoopla (including high-level resignations), the Justice Department’s career staff decided not to prosecute any of those involved.

But Bharara had made his political mark, and the Obama administration rewarded him with the country’s premier law-enforcement post in May 2009 — just as the nation was recovering from the 2008 financial crisis, and when public outrage against Wall Street was at its highest. What has Bharara done since taking the job? A lot less than his headlines suggest.

Obama Obama Asks Cabinet, Experts On Best Ways To Rule By Decree

As President Obama prepares for his State of the Union speech Tuesday night, he has solicited members of his Cabinet for ideas of executive actions he could take without Congressional approval that would further his goal of tackling income inequality. [...]

In addition to his Cabinet, Carney said the White House is also reaching out to business, faith and community leaders and “average folks” across the country on ideas for executive action.

On Tuesday, more than 100 independent experts submitted to the White House some 200 ways Obama can build his environmental legacy change through executive action.

Obama is going to use taxpayer funds to finance a partisan political operation using the Government via the White House

Obama to Launch New Office to Help Dems in 2014 Elections

Democratic campaign operatives have been getting worried that the White House wasn’t doing enough to help them in the midterms, and that President Barack Obama didn’t care enough to change that.

Friday, Obama responded: David Simas, a longtime aide who returned to the White House after running polling and focus groups for the reelection campaign, was named director of a new Office of Political Strategy and Outreach.

The re-establishment of an internal political operation marks a significant shift for the White House, and the latest step in a 2014 West Wing reorientation that’s aimed at quickly making up for years of lost time, both on Capitol Hill and around the country.

Repeatedly, in public and private, Obama has been calling the November elections a top priority. He knows what’s at stake: Democrats losing the Senate would mean a daily barrage of misery for him and the effective death of his agenda. Winning the House — long shot though it is — could allow him to completely transform his legacy in his final two years.

But one month into the year and a third of the way through the first fundraising quarter, Democratic operatives on campaigns and at the central campaign committees were still waiting to hear what that would amount to.

National Newspaper Chain To Build “State-By-State” Database of Legal Gun Owners With Concealed Weapons Permits

National Newspaper Chain To Build “State-By-State” Database of Legal Gun Owners With Concealed Weapons Permits

FOX News

A national newspaper chain with nearly 100 publications and 1.6 million readers is considering building “state-by-state databases” on concealed weapons permit holders, according to an internal e-mail.

The plan, laid out in an email from a top editor at North Carolina-based Civitas Media, could be similar to a controversial project a New York state newspaper carried out in 2012 which included an online map that identified gun owners in two counties by name and address. Civitas’ database project was detailed the plan in a Jan. 19 e-mail to newsrooms in 11 states, including Ohio, Illinois and Pennsylvania.

“The second project examines the explosion of ‘conceal and carry’ gun permits across the U.S.,” wrote Jim Lawitz, Civitas’ director of content, in an e-mail first obtained by the Buckeye Firearms Association. “Through public records act requests, we will attempt to build state-by-state databases that list those who have the right to carry a concealed weapon.”

Supreme Court Rules Obama Admin Cannot Enforce Obamacare Contraception Mandate Against Catholic Nuns, Given Temporary Reprieve

Supreme Court Rules Obama Admin Cannot Enforce Obamacare Contraception Mandate Against Catholic Nuns, Given Temporary Reprieve

The Obama administration cannot enforce the Affordable Care Act’s contraception coverage requirements against a Catholic nuns’ order for the time being, if the nuns tell the government they object to providing that coverage, the Supreme Court ruled Friday afternoon.

The Supreme Court’s action could defuse for the time being a showdown between religious employers and the federal government over the procedures for providing contraceptive coverage to employees of hospitals, nursing homes and other entities run by religious groups.

In a one-page order issued by the court without any noted dissent, the justices said that — at least for now — the Little Sisters of the Poor did not have to follow the procedure the Obama Administration established for religious groups to escape complying with ACA-related rules requiring that employer-provided coverage include contraceptives.

Instead of filling out a government-issued form, the nuns can simply send the Department of Health and Human Services a written notice that the order is a religious organization with “religious objections to providing coverage for contraceptive services.”

The nuns, who run nursing homes, had refused to fill out the federal exemption form, arguing that doing so would violate their religious beliefs by triggering the provisions of contraceptives by others.

Rush Limbaugh Responds to Obama: “I Continue to Live Rent Free in His Head” (Video)

Rush Limbaugh Responds to Obama: “I Continue to Live Rent Free in His Head”

Once again Barack Obama blamed FOX News and Rush Limbaugh for his dismal ratings. Obama told the New Yorker it was FOX and Rush Limbaugh’s fault he is sinking in the polls.

RUSH: Well, ladies and gentlemen, it looks like I continue to live rent free in the head of the president, Barack Obama. It seems that the New Yorker has just posted more from their 18-page Obama interview. I don’t know if the whole thing has been on the Internet. I didn’t read the whole thing. It may have been up there all the time. But here is what the president said, the New Yorker interview with David Remnick that they have just posted.

“Another way of putting it, I guess, is that the issue has been the inability of my message to penetrate the Republican base so that they feel persuaded that I’m not the caricature that you see on Fox News or Rush Limbaugh, but I’m somebody who is interested in solving problems and is pretty practical, and that, actually, a lot of the things that we’ve put in place worked better than people might think. And as long as there’s that gap between perceptions of me within the average Republican primary voter and the reality, it’s hard for folks like John Boehner to move too far in my direction.”

So it’s me again, and Fox News. We are the reason Obama can’t advance his agenda, because Boehner is afraid to move too close to Obama because I have made you — along with Fox News has made you — think Obama is something that he isn’t. And it’s such a shame. I have so distorted who the real Obama is in your mind, that it is paralyzing our government. It is paralyzing the Speaker of the House, who really, really, really, really wants to go in there and really, really work with Obama, but he just can’t. It’s hard for people like Boehner to move too far in my direction because of the misperception of me, Obama says, created by Fox News and Rush Limbaugh.

And greetings, my friends. Welcome. Great to have you. We’re here for another three hours of broadcast excellence here at the distinguished and special Limbaugh Institute for Advanced Conservative Studies. The telephone number if you’d like to be on the program is 800-282-2882. The e-mail address,

We have polling news all over the place today, and we have some data, some actual data that is not polling news, actual results. For example, Quinnipiac poll has Obama way under 50% all over the place. By the way, this is a poll that’s sympathetic to the president. They’ve got his job approval at 40%. Economic policy approval at 39%. Obamacare approval at 36%. In the Quinnipiac poll 77% say the economy is not so good or poor. Forty-nine percent say that Obama is dishonest, and that is the majority in that category. Fifty-three percent say the Obama Regime is incompetent.

So I guess Fox News and I are having a robust time here in getting the truth out about the Regime and the president. You look at that poll, and looks like we’ve succeeded here. In what? Having the truth finally understood. It’s only taken five years. Five years of steady effort.

‘Saddles For Soldiers’ Program Finds Success Treating PTSD In Veterans Through Horse Bonding

‘Saddles For Soldiers’ Program Finds Success Treating PTSD In Veterans Through Horse Bonding

It is estimated that at least 22 war veterans, returned from duty, are killing themselves each day in the U.S. according to the Department of Veterans Affairs.

As more veterans begin returning home from combat zones overseas, the crucial necessity for rehabilitation programs, both psychological and spiritual in nature, becomes ever more pressing. In large numbers, troops coming home face the daunting, and often painful, task of re-acclimating themselves into every-day life. Often times, this is an insurmountable challenge.

Those men and women who find themselves emotionally or psychologically scarred from the trials of war widely find difficulty in locating the proper services owed them by society. In some cases, talking with a professional is not enough to teach these veterans how to cope with their experiences.

Peace, therefore, can sometimes only be found where it is least expected.

Tucked away in the foothills of the Shadow Hills community in Sunland is an equestrian center that offers veterans with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder a path to emotional stability through working with horses.

The 12-step “Saddles for Soldiers” program is designed specifically for veterans who have experienced problems in their attempts to reintegrate back into society. According to the program’s website, “Saddles for Soldiers” is committed to assisting combat veterans deal with their traumas and helping them reestablish life skills by work with horses.

Iraq War veteran and Lancaster native Blade Anthony, who suffers from PTSD after serving as a combat medic with the United States Marine Corps for six years, recalls first joining the program.

“The first time I came, my first session, I was actually over there, in an arena, and you do these things [to get] the horse to bond, and I started thinking of things. I couldn’t handle it,” Anthony said. “So I threw down the rope and I said ‘I don’t want to do this, this is BS’. So I walked over to the fence, and the horse came up behind me, followed me, and put his big, giant muzzle, his head, on my shoulder. And I instantly said ‘Get away from me’, and smacked the horse. And, after I stopped crying, the horse just stood by me, the whole time, and took his head off [my shoulder]. So that was just one of so many experiences that are very positive — that have helped me.”

According to Mental Health and Operations Manager Susan Kelejian, it was estimated between 2007 and 2009 that 25-40 percent of the 1.64 million service men and women deployed for Operation: Enduring Freedom and Operation: Iraqi Freedom suffered from PTSD or major depression.

The theory behind the program is that equine therapy creates a human/animal bond, which, according to Kelejian, is a common first step in reintegration to social norms.

Anthony says that, once he started regularly attending the program, he began to feel better. The nightmares that he had previously experienced on a nightly basis reportedly decreased by 75%.

“They have this spiritual, psychic ability,” Anthony said of the horses. “And I don’t normally talk like that, but I strongly feel that it pretty much saved my life.”

Every Wednesday morning, veterans undergoing recovery are invited to begin their day with an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting along with the horse therapy program.

Owner and Equine specialist Johnny Higginson has run the “Saddles for Soldiers” program for five years with his own money. Higginson describes the changes he’s seen in Anthony through the progress he’s made with the program.

“.. he has changed so much,” Higginson said. “He is just so much more grounded than he used to be.”

While the program, which is said to have as many as 20 veterans attend at times, has reportedly reached dozens of veterans over those five years, Susan Kelejian says that, too many times, no veterans show up.

“A good day is when veterans show up and accept the service that we provide for them, and really that’s it. That’s the good day,” Kelejian said. “The non-good day is, providing the service and having the population not show up. I have to address that. This is an epidemic, and it doesn’t start with the service providers. It starts with the stigma and the trauma that this population has gone through to even be able to get out of the house to return phone calls to go through the multitude of spider-webbed bureaucracy that’s in the government to get them to fill out paperwork to come here. So with all that weighing on their head, on top of what they are diagnosed with and what they are living with, is really sporadic at best. So honestly, a good day is having veterans show up, because we know what we are doing, and we know that this treatment helps.”

The lack of attendance in this and in similar programs may be explained in part by the fact that many people, including some of the returning veterans themselves, are unaware that they are suffering.

“There are a lot of people who don’t know we are hurting. There are a lot of us who won’t admit it,” Anthony said. “For a marine, we always say ‘Suck it up’. You don’t know you are hurting, you just keep going on. I went to the VA (Veterans Affairs) on Sepulveda. I did all that stuff, but this really, really helped me.”

PTSD is an increasingly alarming issue for veterans trying to move on with their lives. Many of those who serve return home seeking peace, only to be faced with a new battle of re-acclimation. For some, therapeutic horse riding may be a way of finding that peace and escaping the pain of the past.

Anthony sums up how the program has helped him as a veteran by reading from a poem that is displayed on a wall at the facility.

“When you feel weak, let me help you build strength. When you can’t find your voice, let us speak without words. When you cannot reach, let me raise you above the world. When you want to give up, let me show you how far you can go.”

U.S. Olympians Tell Their Families To Skip Sochi Over Security Concerns (Video)

U.S. Olympians Tell Their Families To Skip Sochi Over Security Concerns

The Pentagon said Thursday that top U.S. and Russian military leaders are discussing security at the Sochi Olympics.

The games, which open Feb. 7, will be held near a region where Islamic terrorists have found for independence from Russia. Some Americans have already decided that Sochi is not for them - including a family with an emotional tie to the Winter Games.

In Wisconsin, Bob Suter was looking forward to seeing his son play for the U.S. Olympic hockey team. But concerns about security in Sochi are keeping him home.

"Everything is security, security. You know, it's just too bad that it takes away from the athletics and the sports and stuff," he said.

His son, Ryan Suter, is a star defenseman for the Minnesota Wild in the National Hockey League and will play for Team USA. But Ryan Suter made it clear that he preferred that his wife, his two children and his parents stay away.

"It's definitely a concern. I look forward to going to the Olympics and being part of it. You hear all these stories about different things; it's definitely a concern," Ryan Suter said.

"It just makes it maybe not as fun that you have to worry nowadays," his father said. His Minnesota teammate, Zach Parise, has also told his family to skip Sochi.

Egomaniac O'Reilly to interview Dictator egomaniac Barack Obama Before the Super Bowl ... Leave Our Football Alone O'Reilly and Obama

O'Reilly to interview Barack Obama Before the Super Bowl

Obama will give his annual Super Bowl interview to Fox News host Bill O'Reilly this year -- a sit-down that, if history is any guide, promises to be somewhat contentious.

As tradition, President Obama always gives a Super Bowl interview to the network hosting the big game. This year, that falls to Fox, which has tapped O'Reilly, a frequent Obama critic, to conduct the interview.

In addition to the live interview, which will air Feb. 2 ad 4:30 p.m. ET, O'Reilly will conduct a more extensive taped interview that will air on his Fox News program the following evening.

O'Reilly last interviewed Obama ahead of the 2011 Super Bowl and frequently challenged the president's statements on his Health Care legislation.

WOW! S&P Chairman: Obama Regime Threatened Us After We Downgraded America’s Credit Rating In 2011

S&P Chairman: Obama Regime Threatened Us After We Downgraded America’s Credit Rating In 2011

And they apparently made good on that threat, the DOJ then filed a fraud lawsuit against the company.

Former U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner angrily warned the chairman of Standard & Poor’s parent that the rating agency would be held accountable for its 2011 decision to strip the United States of its coveted “triple-A” rating, a new court filing shows.

Harold McGraw, the chairman of McGraw-Hill Financial Inc, made the statement in a declaration filed by S&P on Monday, as it defends against the government’s $5 billion fraud lawsuit over its rating practices prior to the 2008 financial crisis.

McGraw said he returned a call from Geithner on Aug. 8, 2011, three days after S&P cut the U.S. credit rating to “AA-plus,” and that Geithner told him “you are accountable” for an alleged “huge error” in S&P’s work.

“He said that ‘you have done an enormous disservice to yourselves and to your country,’” and that S&P’s conduct would be “looked at very carefully,” McGraw said. “Such behavior could not occur, he said, without a response from the government.”

McGraw said he learned of Geithner’s concerns from a message left by a former subordinate at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, where Geithner had been president in 2008.

The U.S. Department of Justice, which brought the civil fraud lawsuit, did not immediately respond to a request for comment. New York Fed spokesman Jack Gutt declined to comment.

New York's Communist William de Blasio instructed NYC DPW vehicles not to plow NYC’s wealthy Upper East Side neighborhoods

De Blasio ‘getting back at us’ by not plowing: UES residents

William de Blasio has instructed NYC DPW vehicles not to plow NYC’s wealthy Upper East Side neighborhoods.

New York Post

As of this writing, many neighborhoods still have yet to be plowed and streets remain a mess.

Huge swaths of the city’s wealthiest neighborhood had been not been plowed by early Tuesday evening, leaving 1-percenters out in the cold, according to the city’s own map of snow-plower activity.

It really is a tale of two cities — this time with the tony Upper East Side getting the shaft!

Huge swaths of the city’s wealthiest neighborhood had been not been plowed by early Tuesday evening, leaving 1-percenters out in the cold, according to the city’s own map of snow-plower activity.

“He is trying to get us back. He is very divisive and political,” said writer and Life-long Upper East Sider and mom Molly Jong Fast of Mayor de Blasio.

“By not plowing the Upper East Side, he is saying, ‘I’m not one of them.’ But we have everyone in this area on the Upper East Side. We have rich people, middle class people, and housing projects. We have it all.”

There appeared to be no snow plowing between East 59th and 79th Streets and between Second and Fifth Avenues.

“I can’t believe de Blasio could do this. He is putting everyone in danger,” said Barbara Tamerin, who was using ski poles to get around 81st Street and Lexington Avenue.

“What is he thinking? We’re supposed to get up to a foot of snow and nobody on the Upper East Side is supposed to blink an eye? I can barely get around and I’m on snow shoes! All of the buses are stuck and can’t go anywhere. He’s crazy. We need Mayor Bloomberg back!”

Martin Cisse, 45, who works at a flower shop near 85th and Lex, said he can’t understand why the city would fail to plow the UES.

“De Blasio is trying to hurt the more wealthy people by ignoring us but there’s no logic to that,” Cisse said.

“There are a lot of blue collar working people out here driving trucks and trying to get around too.”

Sanitation Commissioner John Doherty, at an evening press briefing, defended the handling of the Upper East Side — claiming that one spreader had a busted GPS and was not reporting progress to the PlowNYC Web site.

“The GPS was not working,” he said. “Also, traffic created a lot of problems for us in that area.”

At the same press conference de Blasio stood by his performance. “All city agencies are acting [like] usual very, very effectively and in a coordinated fashion.”

Sean Hannity to attend Obama’s State of the Union Address with Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX)

Sean Hannity to attend Obama’s State of the Union Address with Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX)

Dallas Morning News

The guest list for President Obama’s upcoming State of the Union address just got more interesting.

Yesterday, Sean Hannity said he’d be attending as a guest of Rep. Louie Gohmert. Hannity is a conservative pundit for Fox News. He’s had Gohmert, an outspoken critic of Obama, on his show a number of times. The Tyler Republican has even filled in hosting Hannity’s show on a few occasions.

Turns out, Hannity may have his own political ambitions in the Lone Star state.

“The answer is yes, I’d think about it,” Hannity said when a viewer asked via Twitter about his inclination to run for office eventually. “It would either be in Texas or Florida.” Hannity, who has indicated he’s leaving what he calls “anti-conservative” New York, later contrasted the state with Texas.

“How does Texas have a $12 billion surplus when they’re in debt up to their eyeballs in Albany?” he asked. He indicated Texas and Florida’s lack of income tax were appealing lures.

Other Texas conservatives have also invited high-profile guests to the president’s big speech. Rep. Steve Stockman has invited Chad Henderson, the former Obama volunteer who told reporters in October about his success signing up for insurance under the Affordable Care Act. Later, he revealed he did not actually enroll.

Obama Adds Over $500 Billion In New Debt in Just Three Months Under Mitch McConnell’s Blank Check Debt Ceiling Deal

Barack Obama has blown through more than $500 billion in deficit spending in the three months since passage of the deal proposed by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) on easing the debt ceiling battles that gave Obama virtually unlimited borrowing authority from October 17, 2013 through this February 7th.

Treasury Secretary Jack Lew sent a letter to Congress today imploring the debt ceiling be raised by February 7th, or the end of February at the latest. Lew cited a limited amount of financial trickery the Treasury can employ to skirt the re-imposition of borrowing authority until the end of February.

CBS News’ Mark Knoller reported on Twitter that Obama had racked up $526 billion in new debt since October 17. The deficit for the entire 2013 fiscal year was $680 billion.

Last April Obama proposed a FY 2014 budget with a deficit of $744 billion.

The national debt now tops $17.2 trillion.

I hope the voters remember what Mitch did and how he benefited from his deal. Regarding Obama, he want to run our country into the ground in every way possible.

Iranian Foreign Minister on Obama Nuke Deal: ‘We Did Not Agree to Dismantle Anything’

Iranian Foreign Minister n Obama Nuke Deal: ‘We Did Not Agree to Dismantle Anything’

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif told reporters today the regime did not agree to dismantle anything in the recent nuclear deal.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif insisted Wednesday that the Obama administration mischaracterizes concessions by his side in the six-month nuclear deal with Iran, telling CNN in an exclusive interview that “we did not agree to dismantle anything.”

Zarif told CNN Chief National Security Correspondent Jim Sciutto that terminology used by the White House to describe the agreement differed from the text agreed to by Iran and the other countries in the talks — the United States, Britain, France, Russia, China and Germany.

“The White House version both underplays the concessions and overplays Iranian commitments” under the agreement that took effect Monday, Zarif said in Davos, Switzerland, where he was attending the World Economic Forum.

As part of the deal, Iran was required to dilute its stockpile of uranium that had been enriched to 20%, well above the 5% level needed for power generation but still below the level for developing a nuclear weapon.

In addition, the deal mandated that Iran halt all enrichment above 5% and “dismantle the technical connections required to enrich above 5%,” according to a White House fact sheet issued in November after the initial agreement was reached.

Zarif accused the Obama administration of creating a false impression with such language.

Senator Tim Scott's Awesome Response To Ugly Racist Rev. William Barber (NAACP Leader in North Carolina)

Tim Scott responds to NAACP insult: Reminds ‘me and others of what not to do’

Tuesday, South Carolina Republican Sen. Tim Scott slammed the NAACP chapter president who called him a ventriloquist’s dummy for the tea party.

According to Scott, North Carolina NAACP President Rev. William Barber II is an example of how not to behave.

“To reflect seriously on the comments a person, a pastor, that is filled with baseless and meaningless rhetoric would be to do a disservice to the very people who have sacrificed so much and paved a way,” Scott told The Daily Caller in an emailed statement. “Instead, I will honor the memory of Dr. King by being proactive in holding the door for others and serving my fellow man. And Rev. Barber will remind me and others of what not to do.”

Over the weekend, on the eve of Martin Luther King Day, Barber derided Scott, one of the U.S. Senate’s two black members, for his views.

“A ventriloquist can always find a good dummy,” Barber said, as reported by South Carolina’s The State. “[T]he extreme right wing down here [in South Carolina] finds a black guy to be senator and claims he’s the first black senator since Reconstruction and then he goes to Washington, D.C., and articulates the agenda of the tea party.”

Scott explained that he has never met Barber and implied that the NAACP chapter head knows nothing about him.

“I did not meet him when I was failing out of high school. I did not see him on the streets of my neighborhoods where too many of my friends got off track and never recovered. I did not meet him when I was working 85 hour weeks to start my business, nor did I meet him when I was running for Congress against long odds. But who I did meet were people everywhere across this state who were willing to work hard and to help me succeed — and I them,” Scott said.

Noting that he has experienced the dreams of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. “as a proud South Carolinian,” Scott pointed to his “Opportunity Agenda” as a way to promote success by providing Americans more opportunity and making government less intrusive.

“That is why we will remain focused on our Opportunity Agenda, promoting better outcomes in education, filling the skills gap for many in our workforce and improving the prospects of our success through tax reform and regulatory reform,” he said.

Wild Thing's comment............

God bless Tim Scott. He needs to know how we support him and are glad he takes a stand.

Here is a quote by Booker T. Washington quote.

"There is another class of coloured people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs — partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.
I am afraid that there is a certain class of race-problem solvers who don't want the patient to get well, because as long as the disease holds out they have not only an easy means of making a living, but also an easy medium through which to make themselves prominent before the public."

Target Drops Health Insurance For Part-Time Workers Because of Obamacare

Target Drops Health Insurance For Part-Time Workers Because of Obamacare

Target Corp. said it will end health insurance for part-time employees, joining Trader Joe’s Co., Home Depot Inc. and other retailers that have scaled back benefits in response to changes from Obamacare.

About 10 percent of Target’s part-time employees, defined as those working fewer than 30 hours a week, use the company’s health plans now, according to an announcement posted today on the Minneapolis-based company’s website. Target said it would pay $500 to part-timers losing coverage and a consulting firm will help workers sign up for new Obamacare plans.

The U.S. Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is the largest regulatory overhaul of health care since the 1960s, creating a system of penalties and rewards to encourage people to obtain medical insurance. The law known as Obamacare doesn’t require most companies to cover part-time workers, and offering them health plans may disqualify those people from subsidies in new government-run insurance exchanges that opened in October.

“Health care reform is transforming the benefits landscape and affecting how all employers, including Target, administer health benefits coverage,” Jodee Kozlak, Target’s executive vice president of human resources, said in the web posting. She cited “new options available for our part-time team, and the historically low number of team members who elected to enroll in the part-time plan.”

The health law requires all companies employing 50 or more people to offer health insurance to employees working 30 or more hours starting in 2015. No part-timers will see their hours cut, Kozlak said. Target, the second largest U.S. discount retailer, had an estimated 361,000 total employees at the end of the last fiscal year, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.

“I just went to see Cicely Tyson on Broadway. She is in her 80s [just turned 80 in December] and did a two-hour play with stamina and passion. I told her ‘I want to be you when I grow up!’” And then she added: “There’s Jane Fonda, a beautiful, engaged, politically savvy, sharp woman.”

Wendy Davis’ Ex-Husband Asked Court To Order Her Not To Use Drugs Before Seeing Her Kids

News has broken that Wendy Davis lied about her background. She is now playing victim blaming Greg Abbott.

It is her ex-husband who talked to a left-of-center Dallas reporter. It is also her ex-husband who asked a Texas District Court to issue a temporary restraining order against Wendy Davis in 2003.

In that order, the judge ordered that Wendy Davis “be immediately restrained from . . . using illegal drugs or consuming alcohol within 24 hours before or during the period of possession of or access to the child.”

Speaking of the child, at the time her twelve year old daughter requested her father serve as her managing conservator.

Obama Could Care Less! Cancer Patient’s Treatment Put On Hold Because of Obamacare

Cancer Patient’s Treatment Put On Hold Because of Obamacare

FOX News

A woman diagnosed with breast cancer, whose life-saving surgery has been postponed after she lost her doctors under ObamaCare, made a heartfelt plea Sunday to President Obama to amend the Affordable Care Act.

In an exclusive appearance on “Fox & Friends,” Josie Gracchi, who has been diagnosed with ductal-invasive carcinoma, looked into the camera and addressed Obama: “I would like my health care taken care of. I was insured. I think anyone who is going through a serious illness should have immediate responses. I shouldn’t have to wait months, weeks, to even be considered for surgery that I should have had weeks ago.”

Gracchi was forced to postpone her Jan. 3 biopsy and follow-up treatment at New York’s Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, the largest private cancer center in the world, when her insurance rolled over into a new plan that was part of an exchange under the Affordable Care Act.

“As of January 1, my insurance plan rolled over into a new ObamaCare plan that is part of the exchange and my doctors are no longer available in my network, so the surgeons that I was dealing with … I no longer have access to,” Gracchi told Fox News.

Gracchi said Sloan-Kettering and her primary doctor are trying to help her get through the situation. She said she has had difficulty trying to find comparable doctors and surgeons that could assist her on, the ObamaCare website.

Good for Sean!! Wall Street should leave NY too! Sean Hannity to Leave New York After Andrew Cuomo's Anti-Conservative Rant

Sean Hannity to Leave New York After Andrew Cuomo's Anti-Conservative Rant

In a radio interview last week, Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) made some disparaging comments about pro-life conservatives, stating they had “no place in the state of New York because that’s not who New Yorkers are.”

Those remarks drew the ire of conservative talk show host Sean Hannity, who on his Monday radio program declared he had enough and was abandoning his home state, where he hosts his widely syndicated radio show and his high-rated Fox News Channel television program.

“Now I want to tell you something – I was born and raised in New York,” Hannity said. “I want you to know that and I can’t wait to get out of here. I really can’t. I don’t want to pay their 10-percent state tax anymore. I live in the second-highest property taxed county in the entire country in Nassau County. I can’t wait to sell my house to somebody who wants it. I can’t wait to pay no state income tax down in Florida or Texas. I haven’t decided yet, but I’m leaning Florida because I like the water and I like to fish.”

Hannity has hosted a radio show in New York City since the late 1990s. In 2001, the show was syndicated and has since filled the current 3 p.m. ET to 6 p.m. ET time slot. He will be following in the footsteps of conservative radio talkers Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck, who had also fled the Empire State for Florida and Texas, respectively.

“Gov. Cuomo, I’m going to leave and I’m taking all of my money with me – every single solitary penny,” he added. “And by the way governor, because I work here – there’s a whole bunch of people that work for me and benefit because I do two shows. And I guess maybe some of them will be out of work, governor. I’m sure you’ll take care of them.”

Then last night he discussed it again on his TV show on FOX. Cuomo Vs Conservative - Cuomo Extreme Conservatives Have No Place In New York - Hannity

‘Let Me Make Something Very Clear, Nobody That Wears A Navy SEAL Trident On Their Chest Is A Fan Of Obama Or Hillary Clinton Period’ _ Former Navy SEAL Christopher Mark Heben

‘Let Me Make Something Very Clear, Nobody That Wears A Navy SEAL Trident On Their Chest Is A Fan Of Obama Or Hillary Clinton Period’...former Navy SEAL Christopher Mark Heben.

Judge Pirro spoke with former Navy SEAL Christopher Mark Heben over the criticism Marcus Luttrell's "Lone Survivor" is receiving from the left and crap media. The left seem to question the events and the mission not understanding the purpose of the SEALs. They aren't primarily there to nation build and be peacemakers, as Heben points out SEALs are the "nation's a 911 response team... to make a person place or thing disappear"!

The discussion moved into Benghazi coverup where Heben made it clear the administration is positioning Hillary for her 2016 presidential run. This when he made a very clear statement that we the people can be thankful to hear "...let me make something very clear: nobody that wears a Navy SEAL Trident on their chest.. nobody is a fan of Obama, nobody is a fan of Hillary Clinton period" He then closes saying he and other former SEALs are planning to "expound upon everything that is out there right now on Benghazi".

Wild Thing's comment................

I think one reason why so many that serve our country are not far left politically is because those on the left do not love our country, do not feel the same way about our Constitution or anything else that has made America great.

Especially with people like Clinton a draft dodger or Obama, but not respecting our military. I would hate to have either one of them for my CIC.

Obama regime Cover-up Campaign on Benghazi, Libya

video illustrates in three minutes flat the entire White House coverup of what President Obama referred to as the “phony” Benghazi scandal.

Compiled by the Heritage Foundation, it gives a perfect graphic representation of the U.S. House testimony as well as the Senate report on the event — both released this week to the public.

The entire rogues gallery of characters is illustrated — Obama, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, then-Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice and Chief White House Spokesman Jay Carney. We see each of them deflecting, obfuscating and out-and-out lying.

So what’s so amazing about the video? It wasn’t produced after the House and Senate reports this week. It was published Oct. 7, 2012, less than one month after the attack that took four American lives.

Federal Appeals Court Rules Bloggers Have First Amendment Protections

Federal Appeals Court Rules Bloggers Have First Amendment Protections

FOX News

The Obama regime seems to believe that they have the right to dictate who qualifies as a “journalist”, and seem to argue that only “real” journalists (translate MSM) qualifies for journalistic or First Amendment protections.

Ah no, and this case could have legal ramifications that could help all bloggers against such minimization of their rights by this regime.

A federal appeals court ruled Friday that bloggers and the public have the same First Amendment protections as journalists when sued for defamation: If the issue is of public concern, plaintiffs have to prove negligence to win damages.

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ordered a new trial in a defamation lawsuit brought by an Oregon bankruptcy trustee against a Montana blogger who wrote online that the court-appointed trustee criminally mishandled a bankruptcy case.

The appeals court ruled that the trustee was not a public figure, which could have invoked an even higher standard of showing the writer acted with malice, but the issue was of public concern, so the negligence standard applied.

Gregg Leslie of the Reporters Committee for the Freedom of the Press said the ruling affirms what many have long argued: Standards set by a 1974 U.S. Supreme Court ruling, Gertz v. Robert Welch Inc., apply to everyone, not just journalists.

“It’s not a special right to the news media,” he said. “So it’s a good thing for bloggers and citizen journalists and others.”

What I learned on the Highway of Death in Iraq - Allen West

What I learned on the Highway of Death in Iraq - Allen West

Today is the 23rd anniversary of the start of the First Persian Gulf War also known as Operation Desert Storm. I was a 29-year-old Captain in the First Infantry Division, “The Big Red One” at Ft. Riley in Kansas. Angela and I just celebrated our first wedding anniversary in December 1990 and now I was deploying into combat — something she had seen her own dad do twice to Vietnam.

I was the Fire Support Officer for Task Force 2-16 Infantry (call sign Ranger 14) in the 2nd Brigade (Dagger). Our mission was to be the lead task force of the 1st Infantry, which was the lead Division of the US VII Corps, into the breach to establish the cleared lanes for the follow-on elements to exploit and continue the attack to envelope Saddam’s Republican Guard units.

Was I nervous, yep, but this was what we had been trained to do — open desert warfare — and would be the culmination of all those National Training Center exercises.

My Artillery Battalion chose me to be the advance party Officer in Charge since I was a senior captain who had already commanded.

My responsibility was to land early and begin preparations for the arrival of the full battalion. I remember the SCUD missile alerts and the threats of frogmen saboteurs at the port. We quickly gathered our equipment, combat-loaded and deployed into the deep desert.

Finally, the day came. It was a foggy, rainy morning. Visibility was poor but we launched. There was a massive artillery preparation, cannon and multiple launch rocket systems (MLRS). it was impressive, our modern US military.

Our scout platoon radioed back “contact” and we went into our plan. Mortars engaged, and then so quickly, ceased fire because the enemy was surrendering. We had surprised the Iraqi forces by showing up so deep in the desert with such a massive force, and thanks to our plan of deception, even the media didn’t know the entire US VII Corps was where it was.

We quickly rolled up the frontline defenses, opened up breach lanes, and began our follow and support operations to ensure there would be no remnant forces attacking to our rear. We knew we had the momentum and with our powerful M1 Abrams tanks, M2 Bradleys, M109 SP Howitzers, MLRS, AH-64 Apaches, and A-10s close air support our force firepower was overwhelming.

The damage delivered to the retreating Iraqi Army was devastatingly clear on what would be known as the “Highway of Death.” The last two Republican Guard Divisions were in our sights when the “ceasefire, consolidate in place” order came.

Our brigade consolidated around the Safwan airfield area and was tasked to secure the site for the surrender negotiations.

That night, after the grand meeting, we sat at our Task Force command post under the glow of the burning oil fields, shared stories and pondered the future. We knew the mission was a resounding success, but strategically we had left the enemy still capable.

And therein lies the lesson. We knew we would have to return, as some did in rotations to Kuwait, and others to guard a “no-fly” zone. We knew the enemy would use its capability against those who had wished we deposed Saddam, and that persecution happened to the Shia and the Kurds.

And so it goes.

Carl von Clausewitz wrote that war is the imposition of one’s will upon another. History teaches us that war has one of three objectives: annihilation, assimilation, or attrition of your enemy. When you engage in limited war, you will have even more limited results and lasting residual effects.

Many of us who were captains and staff sergeants returned to Iraq 12 years later as lieutenant colonels and master sergeants. The other night Greta van Susteren asked me what would I do regarding the situation in Iraq and the return of al Qaida. I responded that we would have to return. Astonished she said, you would go back to Iraq?

What Greta and many others fail to understand is that when you do not define victory and do not defeat your enemy, you will have to return — especially against the enemy called Islamic totalitarianism.

When we commit our forces, it must be to win, and our civilian leadership must have the burning desire and passion in their hearts to set up our men and women to win.

It is a sad cycle of warfare when it is fought by politicians, and not warriors or statesmen. I am proud to have served in Desert Storm and Iraq, the third generation in our family to have served in combat. But as I watched newly promoted Major Bernard West last week, I wondered, what battlefield will he have to return to? Plato said it best, “Only the dead have seen the end of war.”

Canada loses patience with IDIOT Obama on Keystone XL, tells U.S. to decide

Canada loses patience with IDIOT Obama on Keystone XL, tells U.S. to decide

OTTAWA (Reuters) - Canada bluntly told the United States on Thursday to settle the fate of TransCanada Corp's proposed Keystone XL pipeline, saying the drawn-out process on whether to approve the northern leg of the project was taking too long.

The hard-line comments by Foreign Minister John Baird were the clearest sign yet that Canada's Conservative government has lost patience over what it sees as U.S. foot-dragging.

Baird also conceded that Washington might veto the project, the first admission of its kind by a Canadian government minister.

The 1,200-mile (1,930-km) pipeline would carry 830,000 barrels a day from the Alberta tar sands in western Canada to the U.S. Gulf Coast. Ottawa strongly backs Keystone XL, which it says would create jobs and provide a secure supply of oil to Canada's closest ally and trading partner.

"The time for Keystone is now. I'll go further - the time for a decision on Keystone is now, even if it's not the right one. We can't continue in this state of limbo," Baird said in a speech to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

Although the State Department is responsible for ruling whether the pipeline meets the national interest, President Barack Obama has made clear he will make the final decision.

Obama is under heavy pressure from environmental activists to veto the northern leg, and Washington seems in no hurry, despite the growing irritation in Ottawa. Canada is the largest single supplier of energy to the United States.

Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York says "Pro-Life People “Have No Place in the State of New York”

Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York says "Pro-Life People “Have No Place in the State of New York”


Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York has already proven himself to be one of the most pro-abortion politicians in the country. He’s repeatedly pushed a bill that would make the state that has some of the highest abortion rates in the nation further down the road of unlimited abortions.

Now, Cuomo has said that pro-life people have no business living in the state. If the governor has any interest in pursuing national office with a potential Democratic presidential campaign, he’s definitely lost the majority of the country that appreciates the right to life of unborn babies.

But maybe Cuomo is doing the rest of the nation a favor. If he alienates enough pro-lifers, who move elsewhere, the state will continue to see its influence wane — as it further loses more Congressional seats to southern and western states as conservative New Yorkers look for more welcoming places to live.

Governor Cuomo is issuing a warning to what he refers to as the more conservative arm of the Republican party – you’re not welcome in the state of New York.

Moderate Republicans, or those most willing to capitulate to Cuomo’s own extreme agenda, still have the welcome mat rolled out.

Here’s Cuomo during a Friday morning conversation on the Capitol Pressroom (H/t Times Union):

You have a schism within the Republican Party. … They’re searching to define their soul, that’s what’s going on. Is the Republican party in this state a moderate party or is it an extreme conservative party? That’s what they’re trying to figure out. It’s a mirror of what’s going on in Washington. The gridlock in Washington is less about Democrats and Republicans. It’s more about extreme Republicans versus moderate Republicans.

… You’re seeing that play out in New York. … The Republican Party candidates are running against the SAFE Act — it was voted for by moderate Republicans who run the Senate! Their problem is not me and the Democrats; their problem is themselves. Who are they? Are they these extreme conservatives who are right-to-life, pro-assault-weapon, anti-gay? Is that who they are? Because if that’s who they are and they’re the extreme conservatives, they have no place in the state of New York, because that’s not who New Yorkers are.

If they’re moderate Republicans like in the Senate right now, who control the Senate — moderate Republicans have a place in their state. George Pataki was governor of this state as a moderate Republican; but not what you’re hearing from them on the far right.”

Cuomo has made a career of referring to anyone that opposes his agenda as “extreme” while simultaneously referring to that agenda as “common sense.”

Sheesh there is something mentally missing with the left that demand and push and push to allow babies to be killed.....innocent babies.

Veteran U.S. Army Air Forces during World War II , Actor 'Gilligan's Island' Professor, actor Russell Johnson, dead at 89

Military career

After high school, in the midst of World War II, Johnson joined the United States Army Air Forces as an aviation cadet and was commissioned as a second lieutenant. He flew 44 combat missions as a bombardier in B-25 Mitchell twin-engine medium bombers. While flying as a navigator in a B-25 with the 100th Bombardment Squadron, 42nd Bombardment Group, 13th Air Force, his plane and two other B-25s were shot down in the Philippines in March 1945 during a low level bombing and strafing run against Japanese targets. The planes were hit by intense flak and had to ditch in the waters off the port of Zamboanga. During the ditching, he broke both his ankles and the radioman next to him was killed. Johnson earned a Purple Heart for this mission. He was also awarded the Air Medal, the Asiatic-Pacific Campaign Medal with three service stars, the Philippine Liberation Ribbon with one service star, and the World War II Victory Medal. He was honorably discharged with the rank of first lieutenant on November 22, 1945. He then joined the Army Reserve

He became a close friend of Audie Murphy and later appeared with him in three of his films, Column South and Tumbleweed in 1953 and Ride Clear of Diablo in 1954.

He was best known for playing the handsome Professor Roy Hinkley (usually referred to as "The Professor"), the very knowledgeable polymath who could build all sorts of inventions out of the most rudimentary materials available on the island, but, as Johnson himself pointed out, could not fix the hole in the boat. Gilligan's Island aired from 1964 to 1967, but has been shown in reruns continuously ever since.

He died from kidney failure at his home in Bainbridge Island, Washington, on January 16, 2014, at the age of 89

House GOP To Endorse Legalization of Illegal Immigrants As Part of Immigration Overhaul

House GOP To Endorse Legalization of Illegal Immigrants As Part of Immigration Overhaul

House Republican leaders are preparing for the first time to endorse legal status for many of the 11 million people living in the U.S. illegally, a step that could jump-start the moribund immigration debate.

As early as next week, House Speaker John Boehner (R., Ohio) and other GOP leaders will release a one-page set of principles outlining how they hope to overhaul the immigration system, people familiar with their plans say. It will stop short of offering the sort of path to citizenship endorsed by the Senate, but represents a major step toward what immigration advocates and Democrats have long sought.

The issue has divided Republicans, forcing House leaders to navigate between GOP forces that oppose anything that looks like amnesty, and others who believe it is both unrealistic and politically foolish to expect illegal immigrants to go home.

Mr. Boehner and his team plan to circulate the principles in hopes of building support among rank-and-file lawmakers, according to people familiar with the plans. The speaker aims to release the document publicly ahead of the State of the Union speech on Jan. 28, when President Barack Obama is expected to renew his call for Congress to pass immigration legislation.

Wild Thing's comment.............

Extremely disappointing. This is a huge mistake. And 11million? Who are they kidding? It's easily double that. Boehner refuses to appoint a select committee to find justice for 4 dead Americans but willing to go to bat for millions of illegals!

38 Obamacare navigators in NM appeared on FBI Crime database

38 Obamacare navigators in NM appeared on FBI Crime database

An investigation by the National Review, one of the leading conservative media outlets in the country, reports that one in seven navigators in New Mexico hired to help consumers work their way through the Affordable Care Act appeared on the FBI’s National Crime Information Center database.

But an official with the state’s Affordable Care Act Implementation Projects emphasizes that while a person’s name may turn up on the FBI database, it does not mean they pose any risk to consumers and says the navigators have been properly vetted.

According to the story, 38 New Mexico health-care guides or certified application counselors received their certification to deal with consumers working their way through what’s colloquially called “Obamacare,” even though their names matched the FBI database. The National Review’s inspection could not determine how many of the 38 navigators had actually been convicted of a crime.

Wild Thing's comment................

This kind of thing always shocks me. How people hire and allow a person like these 38 ( and we have heard this several times so it is happening a lot with Obamacare) to work with things of highly private matters like citizens identity. Making it so easy to commit identity theft.

Rev. Jeremiah Wright Returns, Jabs Barack- 'Martin Luther King Had a Dream, Obama Has a Drone' (Video)

Rev. Jeremiah Wright Returns, Jabs Barack- 'Martin Luther King Had a Dream, Obama Has a Drone'

And it is captured on a camera phone by CNN at this event. This is a direct swipe at Obama. Jeremiah Wright was speaking at a breakfast co-hosted by the Chicago Teachers Union yesterday morning. He says Obama is not the man of peace that people believe. (Obama drone comments come in at the 1:40 mark)

If the Rev. Jeremiah Wright believes — as he’s claimed in the past — that he and President Barack Obama will be buddies again when he’s out of office, the firebrand preacher didn’t do himself any favors Wednesday.

Speaking at a breakfast co-hosted by the Chicago Teachers Union to commemorate Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday, Wright said that while the civil rights leader proclaimed “I have a dream,” Obama says, “I have a drone.”

Wright, Obama’s former pastor, called for King’s “revolution of values” and a rejection of the “three-headed demon” of “racism, militarism and capitalism” — the foundations of Western society, he said.

“Every Tuesday morning, there’s a kill list that the president decides who they’re going to kill this week,” Wright said.

Wright, pastor emeritus at Trinity United Church of Christ on the South Side, drew national attention during the 2008 presidential race for parts of his sermons, including one in which he said, “God damn America.” Obama later distanced himself from Wright

Great News!!! Jim Moran Third Democrat in Three Days to Announce Retirement from Congress

Jim Moran Third Democrat in Three Days to Announce Retirement from Congress

On Wednesday, Congressman Jim Moran (D-VA) became the third Democratic member of the House of Representatives in the last three days to announce that he will retire and not run for re-election in 2014.

On Tuesday, Congressman Bill Owens (D-NY) announced his retirement. On Monday, prominent Nancy Pelosi ally George Miller (D-CA) announced his retirement.

Though Moran's retirement is not expected to give Republicans a significant chance of wresting control of the Northern Virginia district he has represented in Congress for twelve terms away from the Democrats, it is a clear signal that the ranking Democrat on the Interior-Environment Appropriations Subcommittee believes there is little likelihood his party will win the House back in 2014.

The unattractive prospect of serving in a third consecutive Congress without the subcommittee chairmanship, relegated to having little power as the minority party's ranking member, likely figured in Moran's decision to retire.

Like his retiring Democratic colleague Owens on Tuesday, Moran offered little insight into the real reason for his resignation, saying only, "it's time to close this chapter of my life and move on to the next challenge." Many expect that "next challenge" to be a highly lucrative job as a lobbyist on K Street.

Moran has a reputation as one of the most partisan and unpleasant members of Congress. As Roll Call reported Wednesday, "his professional accomplishments were sometimes overshadowed by personal scandals. Brash and occasionally outspoken to a fault, he has shoved members leaving the House floor, suggested that the Jewish community pushed for the U.S. invasion in Iraq in 2003 and possibly squandered a small fortune in the stock market."

As Breitbart News editor Joel Pollak pointed out Monday, Moran's retirement is yet another sign that Democrats know the 2014 midterm elections are not likely to go their way.

This is good news, he is such a horrible person and a democrat.

Sen. Marco Rubio Moves to Try and Block Barack Obama from doing a Bailout for Insurance Companies to Prop Up ObamaCare

Senator Rubio Discusses Potential ObamaCare Bailout on "Special Report"

Sen. Marco Rubio is moving to try and block Barack Obama from doing what is inevitable with the disaster of ObamaCare: Bailout the Insurance Companies.

There is simply no way ObamaCare will be solvent in and of itself. Not enough young adults are signing up to pay for the older, sicker people being subsidized by the Government. As a result, it is inevitable Obama will try to reimburse Insurance Companies for their losses to keep premiums from going sky high, and to prop up the disastrous system.

Marco Rubio sees that handwriting on the wall, and is proposing legislation to keep that from happening:

Obama to Dems: I'll act with or without Congress

Barack Obama has told Senate Democrats he plans to use his executive authority to act in 2014 when Congress stands in his way.

Obama met with senators from his own party Wednesday at the White House. The White House says Obama and Democrats discussed proposals to raise the minimum wage and efforts to pass a comprehensive immigration overhaul. Education initiatives and jobs measures were also on the agenda.

The White House says Obama wants to work with Congress to make progress, but will also act on his own to get things done.

The meeting was the first such session of 2014 and comes two weeks before Obama is set to deliver his State of the Union address.

The senators left the White House without speaking to reporters.

Obama's FBI Won’t File Charges Against IRS for Targeting Conservatives – BUT They Never Interviewed a Single Tea Party Group

The Wall Street Journal

The Journal that the Federal Bureau of Investigation is unlikely to file any criminal charges in the targeting of conservative political organizations by the Internal Revenue Service. Yet Cleta Mitchell, an attorney who represents many of the targets, says that the FBI has never contacted any of her clients to discuss their treatment at the hands of the IRS. “Shouldn’t law enforcement talk to the victims in an investigation?,” she asks in an email. “That’s like investigating a burglary without interviewing the burgled,” notes a Journal editorial.…

…Beyond the harassment of Tea Party groups and the leaking of confidential taxpayer data to political opponents, the IRS case also involved senior government officials falsely assuring Congress for a year that there was no targeting. IRS brass then falsely and publicly claimed that the targeting was the work of low-level employees. Yet when it comes to allegations of misleading Congress, the Obama Justice Department was more interested in trying to prosecute baseball pitcher Roger Clemens for comments about steroids than it was in pursuing a case involving the use of the nation’s tax-collecting authority against the President’s opponents.

The IRS Scandal involved:

At least 292 conservative groups targeted
At least 5 pro-Israel groups targeted
Constitutional groups targeted
Groups that criticized Obama administration were targeted
At least two pro-life groups targeted
A Texas voting-rights group was targeted
Conservative activists and businesses were targeted.
At least one conservative Hispanic group was targeted
IRS continued to target groups even after the scandal was exposed

Obama Threatens to Use Executive Orders to Circumvent the Congress and the Constitution: “I’ve Got a Pen. . . . ”

Lawless Obama has done it again – this time threatening in the White House to use his “pen” to sign Executive Orders in order to circumvent the will of Congress to get what he wants. His topic was “Jobs,” but what’s important here is that Barack Obama thinks he can just go around Congress to get what he wants by signing Executive Orders. I think we can expect to see a lot of this in the final three years of his failed, disastrous Presidency.

I’ve got a pen a-and I’ve got a phone. Uh, and I can use that pen to sign executive orders and take executive actions and administrative actions that move the ball forward, and I’ve got a phone that allows me to convene, uhh, Americans from every walk of life — nonprofits, businesses, uh, the private sector, uhh, universities, uh — to try to bring more and more Americans together around what I think is a unifying theme: Making sure that, uh, this is a country where, if you work hard, you can make it.

Documents Show Top Defense Officials Briefed Obama Minutes After Assault On Benghazi Began It Was A “Terrorist Attack,” Not A Video Or Protest

Documents Show Top Defense Officials Briefed Obama Minutes After Assault On Benghazi Began It Was A “Terrorist Attack,” Not A Video Or Protest

FOX News

Minutes after the American consulate in Benghazi came under assault on Sept. 11, 2012, the nation’s top civilian and uniformed defense officials — headed for a previously scheduled Oval Office session with President Obama — were informed that the event was a “terrorist attack,” declassified documents show. The new evidence raises the question of why the top military men, one of whom was a member of the president’s Cabinet, allowed him and other senior Obama administration officials to press a false narrative of the Benghazi attacks for two weeks afterward.

Gen. Carter Ham, who at the time was head of AFRICOM, the Defense Department combatant command with jurisdiction over Libya, told the House in classified testimony last year that it was him who broke the news about the unfolding situation in Benghazi to then-Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and Gen. Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. The tense briefing — in which it was already known that U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens had been targeted and had gone missing — occurred just before the two senior officials departed the Pentagon for their session with the commander in chief.

According to declassified testimony obtained by Fox News, Ham — who was working out of his Pentagon office on the afternoon of Sept. 11 — said he learned about the assault on the consulate compound within 15 minutes of its commencement, at 9:42 p.m. Libya time, through a call he received from the AFRICOM Command Center.

“My first call was to General Dempsey, General Dempsey’s office, to say, ‘Hey, I am headed down the hall. I need to see him right away,’” Ham told lawmakers on the House Armed Services Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigation on June 26 of last year. “I told him what I knew. We immediately walked upstairs to meet with Secretary Panetta.”

Ham’s account of that fateful day was included in some 450 pages of testimony given by senior Pentagon officials in classified, closed-door hearings conducted last year by the Armed Services subcommittee. The testimony, given under “Top Secret” clearance and only declassified this month, presents a rare glimpse into how information during a crisis travels at the top echelons of America’s national security apparatus, all the way up to the president.

Also among those whose secret testimony was declassified was Dempsey, the first person Ham briefed about Benghazi. Ham told lawmakers he considered it a fortuitous “happenstance” that he was able to rope Dempsey and Panetta into one meeting, so that, as Ham put it, “they had the basic information as they headed across for the meeting at the White House.” Ham also told lawmakers he met with Panetta and Dempsey when they returned from their 30-minute session with President Obama on Sept. 11.

White House Refusing To Release Text of Obama’s Nuke Deal With Iran

Iran will immediately begin to see “targeted relief” from the economic sanctions as soon as the deal begins, according to Kerry.

“The $4.2 billion in restricted Iranian assets that Iran will gain access to as part of the agreement will be released in regular installments throughout the six months,” Kerry said in a statement. “The final installment will not be available to Iran until the very last day.”

The White House is refusing to release the official text of the nuclear deal, despite requests from reporters and members of Congress.

“I urge the White House to publicly release the text of the implementation agreement with #Iran for all to review,” Sen. Mark Kirk (R., Ill.) tweeted on Sunday.

Baby Killers Planned Parenthood Releases Annual Report Showing They Performed One Abortion Every 96 Seconds, Over 327K Babies Killed In One Year

Planned Parenthood Releases Annual Report Showing They Performed One Abortion Every 96 Seconds, Over 327K Babies Killed In One Year


Over the course of one year they were also given $540 million in taxpayer funds by the Obama regime.

In its latest annual report, released in December, Planned Parenthood says it did 327,166 abortion procedures in the course of one year and 2,197 adoption referrals. That works out to approximately 149 abortions for each adoption referral.

The data comes from an accounting of “patient care” Planned Parenthood says its “affiliate health centers” did in the year that ran from Oct. 1, 2011 to Sept. 30, 2012.

Planned Parenthood says in it new annual report that it received a total of $540.6 million in government grants and reimbursements for the fiscal year that ended on June 30, 2013. That accounted for almost 45 percent of the organization’s total revenue of $1,210.4.

The 327,166 abortions Planned Parenthood did in the year from Oct. 1, 2011 to Sept, 30, 2012 was down 6,798 abortions from the 333,964 abortions the organization did in the year from Oct. 1, 2010 to Sept. 30 2011.

Still, the 327,166 abortions that Planned Parenthood did from October 2011-September 2012 works out to approximately one abortion every 96 seconds.

Wild Thing's comment............

Obama's Fault: Number of Black Men In Labor Force Hits All-Time Low

Number of Black Men In Labor Force Hits All-Time Low

The December rate of labor force participation for black men is the lowest on record.

The headline unemployment rate fell sharply to 6.7 percent in December. The drop of 0.3 percentage points was almost entirely due to people leaving the labor force as the number of people reported employed in December only rose by 143,000. This was just enough to keep the employment-to-population ratio constant. The establishment survey was also surprisingly weak, showing a gain of just 74,000 jobs. In addition, the length of the average workweek fell by 0.1 hour leading to a decline of 0.3 percent in the index of weekly hours for the month.

The drop in labor force participation was sharpest for African Americans, who saw a decline of 0.3 percentage points to 60.2 percent, the lowest rate since December of 1977. The rate for African American men fell 0.7 percentage points to 65.6 percent, the lowest on record. The decline in labor force participation was associated with a drop in the overall African American unemployment rate of 0.5 percentage points to 11.9, and a drop of 0.6 percentage points to 11.6 percent for African American men.

Wild Thing's comment............

Obama To Give Iran $550 Million of Blocked $4.2 Billion On February 1st, Regular Installments To Follow…


Iran would receive the first $550 million installment of a total of $4.2 billion in previously blocked overseas funds on or about February 1, a senior U.S. official said on Sunday.

Under a November 24 nuclear agreement, six major powers agreed to give Iran access to $4.2 billion in revenues blocked overseas if it carries out the deal, which offers sanctions relief in exchange for steps to curb the Iranian nuclear program.

Some payments are contingent on Iran diluting its stockpile of 20 percent enriched uranium to no more than 5 percent enriched uranium. The U.S. official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, described the payment schedule as follows:

Feb 1 – $550 million (NOTE: February 1 is a Saturday, so this payment may need to happen on February 3);

March 1 – $450 million (payment for half of dilution);

March 7 – $550 million;

April 10 – $550 million;

April 15 – $450 million (payment for completion of dilution);

May 14 – $550 million;

June 17 – $550 million;

July 20 – $550 million (NOTE: July 20 is a Sunday, so this payment may need to happen on July 21).

Largest Gun Auction Website Hits Historic Level Of Sales

Breitbart, the world’s largest gun auction website, announced Friday it reached a historic occasion since its launch in 1999. The online firearms and shooting gear auction site reached $3 billion in online sales.

According to a press release, “ is an informative, secure, and safe way to buy and sell firearms, ammunition, and hunting and shooting gear online. promotes responsible ownership of guns and firearms.” Steve Urvan, CEO of, will be in Las Vegas Tuesday at the annual Shot Show convention where he will be presented with a commemorative plaque in recognition of his site’s success.

Nationwide, gun sales have been at a record high and according to reports, over 21 million applications were put through the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) just last year. A number of analysts claim that the rise in gun sales and new gun owner ship is due to new regulations the Obama administration has either put forth or has threatened to push.

Radio Host Anthony Cumia Gets Cancellation Letter, Rips Obama Regime

Radio Host Anthony Cumia Gets Cancellation Letter, Rips Obama Regime

One of the biggest names in broadcasting has just joined the estimated 5.5 million people who lost medical insurance coverage due to new Obamacare regulations.

This week, Anthony Cumia, one half of the satellite radio duo Opie and Anthony received the following notice about his insurance.

During Friday’s broadcast, Cumia announced the news that his policy had been cancelled and he was going to need to find coverage elsewhere after February.

“Did you get your insurance cancellation notice for your health insurance?” Cumia asked his co-host Hughes. The two apparently purchase insurance through the same company. Hughes had not checked his mail since the new year started, so he was not certain if his family’s coverage had been cancelled.

“Apparently, and I did not know this, apparently, I must not have been happy with my current insurance,” said a sarcastic Cumia. “Because I heard from the president, if I was happy, I would able to keep it…but I guess I wasn’t happy and they knew,” continued the outspoken critic of the Obama administration.

CNN Chief Pathetic Sniveling,Jeff Zucker to Republicans: Drop Dead

CNN to Republicans: Drop Dead

CNN Chief Jeff Zucker might not be very good at getting ratings for his Nielsens-challenged network, but he’s great at hurling insults. On Friday, Zucker tried to diminish both the Republican Party and Fox News by alleging that the GOP is being run out of Fox.

RNC Chairman Reince Priebus was having none of it, firing back at Zucker to let him know that Fox News is not the GOP's mouthpiece. "Hey Jeff Zucker, we're the Republican Party and we speak for ourselves, pal," Priebus tweeted. "Have a great weekend."

At a Television Critics Association event on Friday, Zucker alleged that "the Republican Party is being run out of News Corp. headquarters masquerading as a cable news channel" without acknowledging that he runs a network that accused former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin of being responsible for the attempted murder of Gabby Giffords without any evidence whatsoever. CNN has been repeatedly called out for its left-leaning biases that masquerade as "objective" news, which is why the network's primetime ratings hit a 20-year low last year.

It’s an interesting strategy Zucker has: trash the Republican Party and, by extension, all Republicans.

Though Zucker tried to paint Fox as a network that shills for Republicans, Americans do not think so, as more Democrats and independents watch Fox News than CNN and MSNBC. In addition, though Americans once went en masse to CNN to get information about breaking news, that is not the case anymore. Fox News regularly outpaced CNN in ratings when breaking news or tragedies--like the Boston Marathon Bombing--consumed the news cycle last year.

Indeed, it’s little wonder that CNN is no longer the go-to place for breaking news, now that celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain has proven to be the hottest show on the channel. If you want big news on the local cuisine of Bolivia, CNN is on it. But if you want news about, well, news, try Fox. Meanwhile, as we know, MSNBC is now All About Rachel Maddow; no news there, either.

These factors led The Hollywood Reporter to declare that Roger Ailes and Fox News had won the cable news wars.

That’s why CNN has been rocked with reports that though the network wants a primetime shakeup due to its moribund ratings, it cannot even find effective hosts from within, as hosts like Piers Morgan have doubled-down on their liberal causes like increased gun control. Yet, Zucker maintained that CNN was the most objective news outlet.

"There is no network covering American news as seriously and substantially as CNN," Zucker said.

Despite Zucker's claims of seriousness, CNN's reporters have asked President Barack Obama "essential" things like what his New Year's resolution was at a White House press briefing. Critics have described the network as stale, without a voice, and catering to the media and D.C. elite that most of the country dislikes.

In fact, nearly every commentator on CNN—from Republicans like Ana Navarro to Democrats like Paul Begala, all speaking for the "No Labels" or "St. Albans” crowd in Washington—are hardly distinguishable anymore. They all represent the same, smug “Boomtown” mindset. The sort of Navarro Republicans—yes, you, too, Lindsey Graham!—who don’t care if Zucker trashes the GOP; indeed, in swanky Georgetown salons, they might well be agreeing with the “enlightened” criticisms of the GOP.

In many ways, CNN and its hosts are facing the same criticism that Meet the Press and its host, David Gregory, are dealing with as Meet the Press's ratings have precipitously tanked since the show has acted a mouthpiece for those in the permanent political class like Republican Mike Murphy and Democrat Bob Shrum.

"MSNBC has [already] announced they're out of the news business," Ailes told The Hollywood Reporter in an interview that was published this week. "They have several different hosts, but it's always the same show: Republicans are no good.”

Ailes said that "[Zucker] had a big hit with a whale one night [the documentary Blackfish]. I guess he's going to do whales a lot." The Fox News chief was merely responding to Zucker's own admission from an interview in November in which he said that the network would be moving away from news and to "a variety of unscripted formats, including other travel shows, and 'immersive' nonfiction programs."

But Zucker started to walk back those remarks on Friday, saying CNN wanted to be "essential" in its news coverage.

Perhaps Zucker changed his tune because CNN's non-news programming has tanked as well when the shows have not been about whales. CNN's sports show, Unguarded, has achieved dismal ratings. CNN's New Year's Eve programming with the raunchy Kathy Griffin and Anderson Cooper also hit a five-year low in ratings and dropped 40% from the year before. That’s a steep drop. If Zucker were smart, he would accept his fate and go with the food safaris and whale documentaries. Yes, he would go down in history as the man who made CNN “The most powerful name in-non news,” but at least he’d pull a rating.

In the meantime, however, any Republican who tunes into CNN ought to know that he or she is gazing into the face of an avowed enemy.

Obama's Parole Board Frees Bin Laden’s Bodyguard From Gitmo Despite Being Classified As “Too Dangerous To Be Released”

Obama's Parole Board Frees Bin Laden’s Bodyguard From Gitmo Despite Being Classified As “Too Dangerous To Be Released”

The Al Qaeda terrorist—Osama Bin Laden’s bodyguard—determined to be “too dangerous to be released” from Guantanamo just a few years ago will be freed from the military prison because President Obama’s new parole board found he no longer poses a “significant threat to the United States.”

The shocking about-face comes on the heels of mainstream news reports disclosing that a former Guantanamo detainee, Sufian bin Qumu, participated in the 2012 Benghazi terrorist attack on the U.S. mission in Libya. Bin Qumu was released from the prison at the U.S. naval base in Cuba despite having historic ties to the Al Qaeda network and training at bin Laden’s Torkham camp, according to information obtained from his Gitmo file.

That makes this week’s news that bin Laden’s former bodyguard, Mahmud Abd Al Aziz Al Mujahid, will soon be free, all the more outrageous. It was not that long ago—in 2010—that an Obama task force listed Mujahid as too dangerous to release from Gitmo. That put him on a special “forever prisoner” list of 48 indefinite detainees. His Pentagon file says he’s a high risk likely to pose a threat to the U.S., its interests and allies and that he is of high intelligence value.

The defense document also says Mujahid is a member of Al Qaeda who served as a body guard for bin Laden for one year and that he has familial ties to Al Qaeda members, including other bin Laden bodyguards and Gitmo detainees. He traveled to Afghanistan in late 1999 or early 2000 for jihad and received militant training at the Al Qaeda al-Faruq training camp, the file says.

Insanity!!!!! California Leftists Want Global Warming Labels on Gas Pumps

California Leftists Want Global Warming Labels on Gas Pumps

A group of Bay Area environmentalists has proposed labels that will warn drivers of their contribution to global warming every time they pull up to the pump.

Similar to the Surgeon General’s warning on a pack of cigarettes, the proposed stickers would remind motorists of the State of California’s position that fossil fuels are leading to potentially hazardous climate change.

The labels are needed because, “There’s no immediate signal to a consumer of gasoline to show their effects on climate,” Jamie Brooks told the San Francisco Chronicle. Brooks represents, the group behind the proposal.

Jack Lucero Fleck, who also represents 350 Bay Area, said he’s heard criticism that warning labels are ineffective and that the ills of climate change are already widely known.

California Democrats to Push for Background Checks for Purchase of Ammo

California Democrats to Push for Background Checks for Purchase of Ammo

Following passage last year of some of the strongest gun-control laws in the nation in the wake of the school shooting in Newton, Conn., leading California Democrats will open a new front in the fight against gun violence this year with a proposal to conduct background checks on people who purchase ammunition.

State Senate Democrats will push to require a comprehensive background check on anyone seeking to purchase ammunition, and to require a one-year permit for ammunition purchases.

“Anyone can walk into any gun store, a bait and tackle store, and purchase all the ammunition they want to, no questions asked,” Sen. Kevin de Leon (D), the bill’s lead sponsor, said in an interview. “The ammunition is the fuel that feeds the violence. The gun itself, the hand gun or the long gun or the high-powered weapon is the delivery device. The gas, the fuel, is the ammunition, and no one knows who buys it.”

No other state has gone as far as to regulate ammunition purchases, de Leon said, though gun-control advocates in other state legislatures, including New York, have expressed interest in copying the proposal.

Harry Reid with His Senare Democrats Block GOP Attempt To Restore Military Pension Cuts

Harry Reid with his Senate Democrats Blocks GOP Attempt To Restore Military Pension Cuts

Senate Democrats on Thursday blocked a Republican attempt to restore military pensions cut in last month’s budget deal, denying a vote that would save up to $20 billion by closing a loophole that allows tax refunds to go to illegal aliens.

Sen. Barbara Boxer (D., Calif.) called an effort by Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R., N.H.) to repeal the military retiree cuts “fiddling while Rome burns.”

Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) “filled the amendment tree” on Thursday, ending debate and blocking any Republican amendments to a bill to extend unemployment insurance (UI) benefits.

Among them was Ayotte’s measure, which would repeal cuts to military pensions by ending a loophole in the tax code that allows illegal immigrants to receive the Additional Child Tax Credit. Her attempt to get a vote failed 42-54, with only one Democrat, Sen. Joe Manchin (W.Va.), voting with Republicans.

“It’s a sad day when a common sense amendment to responsibly pay for legislation that helps struggling Americans, repeals unfair military retirement benefits and reduces the deficit can’t even get a vote in the Senate,” Ayotte said in a statement.

Democrat Sen. Mark Udall (Colorado) accused of trying to change ObamaCare stats

Democrat Sen. Mark Udall (Colorado) accused of trying to change ObamaCare stats

Dem senator under fire for pressuring agency to change insurance cancellation stats

Democratic Colorado Sen. Mark Udall is under fire following reports that his staff pressured the Colorado Division of Insurance to walk back its claims that 250,000 people in the state had their health insurance canceled due to ObamaCare.

"It's downright shameful that Sen. Udall would attempt to intimidate state employees to give him political cover," Colorado GOP Chairman Ryan Call told FOX31 in Denver.

The allegations surfaced Thursday after the news site Complete Colorado published emails between Udall's office and the Colorado insurance agency last November. At the time, controversy was heating up over the hundreds of thousands of insurance cancellation notices going out -- the cancellations undercut President Obama's campaign-trail assertions that those who like their health plans can keep them.

Udall's staff challenged the Colorado agency for saying there had been 249,000 cancellations.

"Sen. Udall says our numbers were wrong. They are not wrong," one insurance department official wrote, according to a Nov. 14 email. "Cancellation notices affected 249,199 people. They want to trash our numbers. I'm holding strong while we get more details. Many have already done early renewals. Regardless, they received cancellation notices."

The dispute apparently was over the fact that many of those receiving cancellation notices were also being offered renewals.

"We reached out to the Dept. of Insurance because 250,000 cancellations was radically different than the number we were hearing from the insurance industry," Udall spokesman Mike Saccone told FOX31 Denver. "In fact, 96 percent of Coloradans who received 'cancellation letters' were offered an opportunity to renew their current coverage. To the average Coloradan, that is not a cancellation."

Udall's office wanted that clarification to be made.

But the tone of the emails drew accusations of intimidation.

One email showed the same insurance agency official telling colleagues she got a "very hostile phone call" from Udall's deputy chief of staff.

Another email showed a Udall staffer telling the division "we need to move on this ASAP -- or we'll be forced to challenge the 249K number ourselves."

Brook Hougesen, a spokeswoman with the National Republican Senatorial Committee, said in a statement that Udall "authorized his staff to pressure and intimidate state officials to manipulate health care cancellation statistics resulting from ObamaCare."

Rep. Cory Gardner, R-Colo., also wrote a letter on Thursday to state Insurance Commissioner Marguerite Salazar pressing for details about their insurance cancellation calculations.

Resident Turns on Home Invaders with AK-47

Resident Turns on Home Invaders with AK-47

A home invasion in Florida took a strange turn after the resident went after the suspects with an AK-47.

According to NBC Miami6, one home invasion suspect was fatally shot and two others are on the run from authorities after a Davie, Florida resident fired his AK-47 at his attackers last Thursday.

Three armed men allegedly entered the victim’s apartment and pistol-whipped the resident inside. Then the resident got a hold of his AK-47.

“The resident of the apartment had possession of an AK-47 and after he received this beating he was able to get possession or control of that, and started shooting at these suspects as they were fleeing,” Davie Police spokesman Capt. Dale Engle said.

The shooter was taken in for questioning but has since been released. He is cooperating with detectives, according to Engle.

Obama to use Tax Payer Money for Obamacare Commercials to Run During Olympic Games

Obama to use Tax Payer Money for Obamacare Commercials to Run During Olympic Games

Barack Obama's administration will use taxpayer funds to promote Obamacare during the Sochi Winter Olympics at a time when young Americans that the administration needs to sign up for Obamacare have not been doing so in numbers the administration had predicted.

According to ABC, "the Department of Health and Human Services will launch a TV ad blitz to take advantage of anticipated increased viewership on NBC stations which will carry the Olympic coverage between Feb. 7 and 23."

The ads will reportedly run in "in markets with the highest rates of uninsured," and they will "will encourage uninsured people, particularly young adults, to enroll in Obamacare coverage before the March 31 deadline."

Health insurance experts say that for Obamacare to work, "at least 40 percent of sign-ups need to be between the ages of 18 and 34 to keep premiums in check."

Chamber of Commerce Vows To Take On Tea Party Republicans In GOP Primaries

At the annual State of American Business Address on Wednesday, U.S. Chamber of Commerce President Thomas J. Donohue announced that the chamber plans on endorsing against some tea party members in Republican primaries.

“In 2014, the chamber will work to protect and expand a pro-business majority in the House and advance our position and our influence in the Senate,” Donohue said. “The business community understands what’s at stake.”

Donohue explained in an interview with Bloomberg, that while he is skeptical of big government, he opposes politicians who have “hitched their trailer to the tea party wagon.” Donohue blames these lawmakers for shutting down the government in October 2013.

From what we saw the Tea party movement was about less taxes, less regulations, less government in our lives and getting rid of Obamacare and very pro capitalism, and very pro our Constitution. Now how on earth that is something bad I will never ever understand. It was made up of Republicans, independents and even some not so learning left democrats disappointed in the democrat party.

Obama Administration Blames Record Cold On Global Warming

The Obama administration released a YouTube video on Wednesday by Obama Science Advisor Dr. John Holdren blaming ‘global warming’ for the recent polar vortex driven outbreak of sub-zero weather in North America.

The two-minute-twelve-second long official White House video opens with a satellite image dated January 7, 2014 of most of the central and eastern United States and Canada covered in clouds and snow (any evocation of the Day After Tomorrow is pure propaganda coincidence) . For the entire length of the video, Holdren speaks over a hypnotic synth-music track while varying graphics promoting global warming appear on the screen with him.

Former Defense Sec. Robert Gates: Biden “Has Been Wrong On Nearly Every Major Foreign Policy And National Security Issue Over Past Four Decades"

Former Defense Sec. Robert Gates: Biden “Has Been Wrong On Nearly Every Major Foreign Policy And National Security Issue Over Past Four Decades"

Biden has a near perfect record of being wrong on almost every major foreign policy question since being elected to the Senate in 1972.

He supported the nuclear freeze in the 1980s, opposed Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI). He warned of a new arms race if the U.S. withdrew from the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty. He opposed aiding the Nicaraguan resistance. Biden was against Desert Storm that liberated Kuwait, against the troop surge in 2007 that defeated much of the insurgency. He also wanted to partition Iraq into 3 sections -Kurd, Sunni, Shia. The man has been wrong on everything and that's all before he became VP. The list goes on.

Gates: Obama And Hillary Clinton Admitted To Me Their Opposition To 2007 Iraq Surge Was “Political”…

Gates offers a catalogue of various meetings, based in part on notes that he and his aides made at the time, including an exchange between Obama and then-Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton that he calls “remarkable.”

He writes: “Hillary told the president that her opposition to the [2007] surge in Iraq had been political because she was facing him in the Iowa primary. . . . The president conceded vaguely that opposition to the Iraq surge had been political. To hear the two of them making these admissions, and in front of me, was as surprising as it was dismaying.”

LOL Michelle Obama Tells Guests Invited To Her Birthday Party “To Eat Before You Come” But says Snacks & Sips & Dancing & Dessert

“I Don’t Think It’s Rude, But…” Etiquette Experts Perplexed Over First Lady’s Party Plans

Guests attending Michelle Obama’s50th birthday party at the White House later this month can look forward to “a little Dougie” but definitely not dinner.

Word’s out that the lucky VIPs invited to fete Mrs. Obama at a “Snacks & Sips & Dancing & Dessert” party have been advised to dust off their dancing shoes and, more strictly, “to eat before you come.”

While it’s always nice to give the stiletto sporting crowd a heads-up, the East Wing’s “EBYC” directive has some folks in the party planning business scratching their heads.

“I don’t think it’s rude, but I do think it’s a little . . . different than what people are used to. How’s that for putting it delicately?” joked Lizzie Post, great-great-granddaughter of Emily Post and co-author of “Great Get-Togethers: Casual Gatherings and Elegant Parties at Home.”

Colin Cowie, Oprah Winfrey’s go-to entertainment guru, worded his reaction gracefully.

“To ask people to ‘eat before you come’ is not the way I would have done it,” Cowie said. “I always think of the food. When it comes to making people feel welcome we give them great music, a well-stocked bar, and excellent food — and you do it abundantly.

Area party planner Andre Wells agreed that telling guests to grab a meal before they attend a get-together is a bit unusual.

“I’ve never seen it said straight out. That is definitely new,” said Wells, before adding that some harried hostesses might appreciate the break in protocol. “But I know a lot of people will be happy about it. They’ll say, ‘Well, if the president and first lady said it, we can certainly say it on our invites.’ ”

Son of fallen SEAL discusses movie 'Lone Survivor'

Son of fallen SEAL discusses movie

Jacob Healy says 'Lone Survivor' shows brotherhood well

Jacob Centeno Healy is the son of Sr. Chief Petty Officer Dan Healy, a Navy SEAL killed during the 2005 Operation Red Wings mission. He is a recent University of San Diego graduate.



Peter Berg’s version of “Lone Survivor” is a step-by-step account of extraordinary men who were ready to answer the call and fight for their nation.

The film provides a taste of what it takes to become a SEAL and how qualified and prepared the close-knit band-of-brothers are. Most Navy SEALs share a strong sense of humor and camaraderie, which Berg illustrates well as we are introduced to the SEALs involved in Operation Red Wings.

Once the gunfight breaks out, viewers become engulfed in the downward spiral that these indomitable men had to suffer.

It is heart-wrenching and provocative. Each bullet that pierces Axe, Danny, Marcus and Murph really hurts you inside. The SEAL spirit and “never give up” mentality combined with the overwhelming and consistent worsening of the situation is a very emotional journey.

My advice is to pay close attention to the camaraderie and cohesive movement of the SEALs. My father always referred to the SEALs as team guys. In this film, this is depicted well. The SEALs acted as a unit and are always more concerned about their brothers than themselves.

I was pleased with the cast of “Lone Survivor.” The actors did a grand job of portraying each SEAL and did not take away from their real-life characters in any way.

My favorite part is subtle. Many viewers may know that Marcus Luttrell appears in several scenes. If you pay close attention, you’ll see Marcus is on board the quick reaction force helicopter that is called in by Lt. Mike Murphy and was subsequently shot down.

Anyone who understands the nature of the Navy SEAL brotherhood will understand Marcus when he claims a part of him died on those mountains in the Kunar province of Afghanistan. I found it powerful that Marcus went down with the helicopter in the film. Being that my dad, Senior Chief Daniel Healy, went down on that helicopter, it was a little overwhelming and hit a little too close to home seeing Marcus on board with his “brothers” who died that fateful day June 28, 2005.

However, the most sobering moment by far is the reel of images at the end. The tribute reminds us the events and the men were real; they had families, homes and hobbies just like all of us. Yet they would make the same sacrifice 100 times over because they loved who and what they were fighting for.

Wild Thing's comment...........

I am so glad this film has been made, I hope a lot of people go to see it. We can never thank our Veterans and troops enough for what they do and have done for us and for our country and for the world.

Good!!!! RNC Chairman Reince Priebus other committee members to join the March for Life on the Mall January 22nd

RNC Chairman Reince Priebus other committee members to join the March for Life on the Mall January 22nd

With pro-life rally plans, RNC delivers big statement on abortion
RNC to delay start of winter meeting to allow members to attend pro-life rally

Washington Times

n an unprecedented show of opposition to abortion, Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus is delaying the start of the party’s annual winter meeting so he and other committee members can join the March for Life on the Mall, The Washington Times has learned.

Mr. Priebus, a plain-spoken Greek Orthodox lawyer from Wisconsin, will join members of his party’s national committee and thousands of other abortion opponents in the annual right-to-life march scheduled for Jan. 22, the anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision that declared abortion a constitutional right.

“I saw that there was a real interest among a significant portion of our members to attend and support the Rally for Life,” Mr. Priebus said in an email to The Times. “This is a core principle of our party. It was natural for me to support our members and our principles.”

Mr. Priebus, in his second term as elected chairman of the Republican National Committee, chose to delay the start of the four-day winter meeting of the GOP governing body, also scheduled in Washington, to allow himself and RNC members to attend the march. The delay is unprecedented for a major U.S. political party, several state Republican Party chairmen and other RNC members said in telephone interviews.

Mr. Priebus also decided that the RNC will charter a bus to and from the march for those among the RNC’s 168 members who wish to attend, he said.

“I will attend the March for Life and am making a few simple modifications of the schedule and ensuring that the members have safe and adequate transportation to and from the rally,” he said in his email.

In an email circulated among other members, Alaska RNC member Debbie Joslin said, “I have served under a number of chairmen and not one of them ever made any opportunity for us to attend the March for Life, and they always scheduled critical meetings for the same time as the March for Life. Big thanks to Reince for standing up for the unborn!”

The chairman’s action is an example of the increasingly bottom-up instead of top-down way the RNC functions.

On paper, the RNC is quite democratic in structure — it is made up of an elected state party chairman and an elected committee man and a committee woman from each of the 50 states and five U.S. territories. But for almost its entire history, the national chairman, in an informal alliance with the GOP congressional leadership and top fundraisers, has called the shots.

But this act was different.

“When Reince got wind of what members were planning on their own, he emailed that he would shift our RNC schedule so we could attend, and he offered that the RNC would get transportation for us,” Missouri GOP Chairman Ed Martin said.

Oklahoma RNC member Carolyn McLarty, an evangelical Protestant, said the schedule change had its origins in an email reminder about the march from Virginia RNC member Kathy Hayden “about a week ago and that we could probably attend at least part of it prior to the start of the RNC meetings. … Things have snowballed from there.”

She said West Virginia RNC member Melody Potter had “contacted the bus company and the emails started flying with members wanting to attend.”

“I am pumped at the opportunity that we have as a party,” Mrs. Potter said. “There is nothing that we cannot accomplish together. We are Republican for a reason.”

The March for Life is one of the biggest events of the year for social conservatives. Although neither the National Park Service nor any other government agency publicly releases estimates of such demonstrations and rallies, organizers said about 650,000 people marched last year.

As testimony to the steady increase since the 1980s of social and religious conservatives — especially evangelical Protestants — in the Republican Party electoral coalition, House Speaker John A. Boehner, an Ohio Republican and a Catholic, addressed the rally last year.

“It wasn’t easy for my mother to have 12 children, but I’m sure glad she did,” Mr. Boehner said. “So I’ve never considered ‘pro-life’ to be a label or a position. It’s who I am, and it’s who we are as a people.”

The pro-life rally and march will run from noon to 1 p.m. with a warm-up event and concert in the hour before the rally begins its route up Constitution Avenue to the Supreme Court Building on Capitol Hill.

Mr. Priebus made his decision after learning that about 20 members were planning to hire and share the cost of a bus to take them from the Renaissance Hotel in downtown Washington to the rally and back.

Responses to the march from Mr. Priebus’ predecessors have ranged from quiet opposition to pro-life language in the party’s platform to a public and determined effort by Haley Barbour to quash attempts to deny RNC financing to pro-choice GOP candidates.

Obama lectures other people on taking vacations from his luxury Hawaiian retreat

Obama lectures other people on taking vacations from his luxury Hawaiian retreat

Having destroyed the American health insurance industry, leaving thousands of people uncertain of whether they actually have valid health insurance or not, President Obama jetted off to a luxurious extended Christmas vacation in Hawaii. You might think the "optics" couldn't possibly be worse - Obama frolicking on the beach while surgeons are spending two hours on hold with the ObamaCare commissars to find out if they can proceed with operations.

But you would be wrong. Because the Empty Chair actually scolded Republicans for taking a holiday vacation.

And he did it from his posh Hawaiian retreat. Here's the beginning of the President's weekly radio address:

Hi, everybody, and Happy New Year.

This is a time when we look ahead to all the possibilities and opportunities of the year to come – when we resolve to better ourselves, and to better our relationships with one another. And today, I want to talk about one place that Washington should start – a place where we can make a real and powerful difference in the lives of many of our fellow Americans right now.

Just a few days after Christmas, more than one million of our fellow Americans lost a vital economic lifeline – the temporary insurance that helps folks make ends meet while they look for a job. Republicans in Congress went home for the holidays and let that lifeline expire. And for many of their constituents who are unemployed through no fault of their own, that decision will leave them with no income at all.

Obama has gone beyond satire. This isn't just bad politics. This is a man who has lost his grip on reality. His "signature achievement" is a pile of smoking trillion-dollar wreckage, and he couldn't be bothered to keep tabs on its development at all. He fiddled while the incompetent fools at Health and Human Services built a balsa-wood Rome, and then burned it down. He scooted off for vacation while his arbitrary and illegal modifications to the law left an entire industry, and its millions of customers, in mad turmoil.

And he dares.... this man, of all people, this man who wasted a trillion dollars and then told us he discovered there's no such thing as the "shovel-ready jobs" he was ostensibly creating... this man who wasted another trillion and then told us aw, shucks, you know what, it turns out that selling insurance is hard... this dilettante who never held a real job in his life, who set records for time spent playing golf while presiding over the worst "recovery" from a recession in modern history... dares to take cheap shots at congressional Republicans because they went home for the holidays? None of the Democrats did that, huh? They spent the final weeks of December glued to their seats in the House and Senate, did they?

Besides the you-gotta-be-kidding-me gall of the President's remarks, we're back this infantile politics of division and hatred he specializes in. There's a discussion to be had about the merits of extending unemployment benefits, but the man whose ruinous economic policies makes those benefits necessary isn't interested in having it. He needs a distraction from the failure of ObamaCare, and it looks like he's going to get it by throwing below-the-belt punches that make even some of his dwindling band of supporters laugh nervously, as they wonder whether His Imperial Majesty King Barack of the Links couldn't even wait to get home from his tropical getaway before ankle-biting other people about returning to their districts to spend holiday time with their families.

90-year-old laundromat owner, George Hicks of Dayton, Ohio, turned the tables on an attempted robber when he was confronted in his office recently. Security video captured the foiled robbery and showed a man wearing a hoodie, demanding cash from Mr. Hicks. The unknown suspect then got quite a surprise when the elderly man refused the request and pulled out a chrome semi-automatic gun, sending the burglar running from R&J Laundromat. In a report via KTRK ABC 13, George laughed saying, “I said, ‘I”ll Blow Your **** Brains Out, and He was Gone”

Obama Announces Executive Orders to Limit Gun Ownership – US Veterans Hardest Hit

Obama Announces Executive Orders to Limit Gun Ownership – US Veterans Hardest Hit

Gun Groups Wary of Obama's New Firearms Initiative: 'Devil's in the Details'


The White House inched forward Friday with two new executive actions aimed at boosting the federal background-check system. The new laws will make it more difficult for “anyone who may pose a danger to themselves or others” to purchase a gun.

Under the measures announced by the White House, the Justice Department will propose changes to the federal background check system to clarify who under U.S. law is prohibited from possessing a firearm because of mental health problems.

The Department of Health and Human Services also will propose a regulation aimed at making it easier for states to submit information about the mentally ill to the federal system, without blocking all people who seek mental health treatment from owning guns.

“The administration is committed to making sure that anyone who may pose a danger to themselves or others does not have access to a gun,” the White House said in a statement. “The federal background check system is the most effective way to assure that such individuals are not able to purchase a firearm from a licensed gun dealer.”

The new laws may make it even more difficult for US veterans to own guns.

US veterans started receiving letters from the government last year informing them that they are disabled and not allowed to own, purchase or possess a firearm. If the veteran does decide to purchase a firearm he will by fined, imprisoned or both.

This comes on page 2 of the VA letter. Please CLICK HERE TO READ......

The letter to veterans stated:

“A determination of incompetency will prohibit you from purchasing, possessing, receiving, or transporting a firearm or ammunition. If you knowingly violate any of these prohibitions, you may be fined, imprisoned, or both pursuant to the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act, Pub.L.No. 103-159, as implemented at 18, United States Code 924(a)(2).”

Obmaa’s latest executive orders will no doubt make it even harder for US veterans to own or purchase firearms.

While Carson said there is medicinal usage for the drug, he said widespread legalization of it is just more evidence of the growing “Hedonism” of our society. His primary concern is that it is a “gateway drug” that can lead to serious addiction problems

Must see video! Obama and his AdministrationTells SCOTUS to Force Catholic Nuns to Pay for Contraception

Obama Administration Tells SCOTUS to Force Catholic Nuns to Pay for Contraception

The Obama administration told the Supreme Court to force the Little Sisters of the Poor to pay for contraception.

The Obama administration has filed legal papers appealing a decision by the Supreme Court to protect a group of Catholic nuns from being forced to obey the controversial birth control mandate.

As LifeNews reported this week, in a huge 11th-hour victory for pro-life advocates, the Supreme Court issued an order late Tuesday night stopping the Obama administration from forcing a group of Catholic nuns to obey the HHS mandate that compels them to pay for abortion-causing drugs and birth control.

The group Little Sisters of the Poor received a temporary injunction from the Supreme Court protecting them from the controversial HHS contraceptive mandate. The injunction means that the Little Sisters will not be forced to sign and deliver forms authorizing and directing others to provide contraceptives, sterilizations and drugs and devices that cause abortions.

ANOTHER Obama LIE! Obama Promised Obamacare Would Respect Those Who Disagree With Abortion

Obama Promised ACA Would Respect Those Who Disagree With Abortion

Barack Obama told a Notre Dame audience in 2009 that his health care plan would respect the beliefs of pro-life Americans.
Now he’s demanding nuns pay for birth control.

During his 2009 Notre Dame speech Obama suggested the government should accommodate religious objections to parts of the law:

“Let’s honor the conscience of those who disagree with abortion and draft a sensible conscience clause. And make sure that all of our health care policies are grounded, not only in sound science, but also in clear ethics.”

But it was a lie!!!!!!

Now the Obama administration is forcing the Little Sisters of the Poor to pay for birth control. ( see my other post about these Nuns. )

Obama Regime Lists 141 New Economy-Crushing Regulations In Only Three Days…

Obama Regime Lists 141 New Economy-Crushing Regulations In Only Three Days

It’s a new year and you know what that means — new regulations. The Obama administration has wasted no time in writing them.

The website lists 141 regulations that have been posted by federal agencies in the last three days alone. Of these regulations, 119 are “rulemaking,” meaning they establish a new rule. Twenty-three are “non-rulemaking,” meaning the regulations does not establish a new rule.

The largest group of regulations have to do with energy and environmental issues, many of them issued by the Environmental Protection Agency. One new EPA regulation is an amendment to a rule on hazardous emissions from lead smelters.

The EPA has come under fire from lawmakers for cracking down on emissions from coal plants and other carbon-heavy fuels and materials. The agency is also working on 134 major and minor regulations that will take effect in the coming years.

In particular, the agency is under fire for a rule that will be finalized later this year capping carbon dioxide emissions from power plants, effectively banning coal-fired power plants from being built.

“If these regulations go into effect, American jobs will be lost, electricity prices will soar, and economic uncertainty will grow. We need the federal government to work as a partner, not an adversary, and to invest in America’s energy future,” said West Virginia Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin.

Another new regulation from the Energy Department that has been listed since the new year establishes “test procedures for residential furnace fans.” The Energy Department under new leadership from Secretary Ernest Moniz has been less of a lightning rod for controversy, but the department has still been active in pushing for more regulations.

The Energy Department has 82 regulations listed in its latest Unified Regulatory Agenda for 2013. Many of its new rules have to do with energy efficiency and conservation efforts — a major shift in priorities from President Obama’s first term where the DOE focused on renewable energy development.

Recently, the DOE announced an agreement with cable providers to improve the efficiency of “pay-TV set-top boxes” that aims to save consumers money and energy.

“These energy efficiency standards reflect a collaborative approach among the Energy Department, the pay-TV industry and energy efficiency groups — building on more than three decades of common-sense efficiency standards that are saving American families and businesses hundreds of billions of dollars,” Moniz said in a statement. “The set-top box efficiency standards will save families money by saving energy, while delivering high quality appliances for consumers that keep pace with technological innovation.”

Obama’s Half-Brother ‘Floored’ About President’s Lying About Meeting Him

Barack Obama’s Half-Brother Mark ‘Floored’ About Barack Obama's Lying About Meeting Him

Barack Obama’s half-brother Mark Obama Ndesandjo said he was “Floored” when Obama lied and said recently that they had just met. Mark Obama Ndesandjo was on with Laura Ingraham today to push his new book.
National Review reported:

Mark Obama Ndesandjo said he was surprised to hear his half-brother President Barack Obama say they had only recently met for the first time.

“I was floored by it — I don’t know why he said it,” Ndesandjo said to Laura Ingraham, adding that he had met the president several times over the years and still isn’t sure what his motivation was for making the claim. “I think he was being president and was not being my brother,” Ndesandjo said.

From their first meeting, which took place in the 1980s in Kenya, where he lived as an American ex-pat, Ndesandjo​ said both he and the president had different views: Ndesandjo was trying to distance himself from his father and his father’s name, while Obama was looking to further embrace his father’s roots.

When Ingraham pointed out that Obama doesn’t spend very much time with his extended family and seems to prefer the company of celebrities such as Jay-Z and Beyoncé, Ndesandjo said she “had a point.”

Hospitals Turning People With Obamacare Away Because They Can’t Tell If Their Plans Are Active

Hospitals Turning People With Obamacare Away Because They Can’t Tell If Their Plans Are Active

Hospital staff in Northern Virginia are turning away sick people on a frigid Thursday morning because they can’t determine whether their Obamacare insurance plans are in effect.

Patients in a close-in DC suburb who think they’ve signed up for new insurance plans are struggling to show their December enrollments are in force, and health care administrators aren’t taking their word for it.

In place of quick service and painless billing, these Virginians are now facing the threat of sticker-shock that comes with bills they can’t afford.

‘They had no idea if my insurance was active or not!’ a coughing Maria Galvez told MailOnline outside the Inova Healthplex facility in the town of Springfield.

She was leaving the building without getting a needed chest x-ray.

‘The people in there told me that since I didn’t have an insurance card, I would be billed for the whole cost of the x-ray,’ Galvez said, her young daughter in tow. ‘It’s not fair – you know, I signed up last week like I was supposed to.’

The x-ray’s cost, she was told, would likely be more than $500.

Galvez said she enrolled in a Carefirst Blue Cross bronze plan at a cost of about $450 per month through, three days before Christmas.

‘No one has sent me a bill,’ she said. [...]

A similar situation frustrated Mary, an African-American woman small businesswoman who asked MailOnline not to publish her last name. She was leaving the Inova Alexandria Hospital in Alexandria, Virginia with two family members.

‘I had chest pains last night, and they took me in the emergency room,’ Mary said. ‘They told me they were going to admit me, but when I told them I hadn’t heard from my insurance company since I signed up, they changed their tune.’

Small Business Group Says NOT A SINGLE MEMBER Has Seen Health-Care Costs Go Down Under Obamacare

In 2011 during his reelection campaign Barack Obama promised Americans who “get their insurance from the workplace” will see $3,000 in savings thanks to Obamacare.

The National Federation of Independent Businesses (NFIB), a group representing 11,000 members and small businesses, has not had a single member report health-care savings under Obamacare.

The New York Post

New York’s small-business owners, seniors and doctors are among the big losers as President Obama’s prescription for health-insurance reform takes effect.

The National Federation of Independent Businesses, an organization that represents nearly 11,000 entrepreneurs across the state, says it has yet to find a single member whose health-care costs are going down under the ObamaCare program, whose plans took effect New Year’s Day.

Meanwhile, an “overwhelming majority” of businesses canvassed by the group has reported increases in their insurance premiums, said Mike Durant, the NFIB’s New York director.

Legendary Anti-Communist Leader Lech Walesa: Obama Has Failed, “America No Longer Leads The World”

The Nobel Peace Prize-winning former president of Poland, Lech Walesa, says President Obama has failed to reclaim America’s role as a world leader.

“When he was elected… there was great hope,” Walesa said. “…. we were hoping Obama would reclaim moral leadership for America,” adding: “That failed.”

“…. in terms of politics and morality, America no longer leads the world,” he said. “…America did not regain its leadership status. We were just lucky there were no big conflicts in the world,” saying the world has relied on a strong America to maintain the balance of power around the globe.

“… It’s a dangerous situation so we are awaiting a president who will understand that,” he said.

California 2014 Laws Affect Transgenders, Smokers, Drunk Drivers

As 2014 is just a day away, new laws have been crafted for Californians to adhere to. Here are just a few blessed laws and regulations that will come into effect in 2014:

Transgender Rights: We will all sleep a little better at night knowing that students in grades K-12 who identify as transgender will be able to use the school bathrooms of their choosing as long as it is “consistent with their gender identity,” even if it is different than their gender at birth. Students will also be able to select whether they want to be on the boys team or the girls team based on their “gender identity.”

On Campus Smoking: Men wearing dresses to class with earrings in their noses is no problem, but don’t get caught inhaling a Camel walking to your next exam. All 10 University of California campuses will be smoke-free starting Jan. 1, 2014. The ban includes all tobacco products. Sorry, e-cigarettes count; they are also banned.

More Room for Bicyclists: This one doesn’t become law until Sept. 16, 2014. Driving a car and passing too close to a bicyclist could result in a fine for the driver, whether there was a crash or not. Drivers must be at least three feet from the cyclist while passing.

Minimum Wage: Based on the Bureau of Labor Statistics, by state California is ranked 46th in the nation in unemployment rates, weighing in at 8.5%. This has not deterred the state from increasing the minimum wage by one dollar to $9.00/hr, which will kick in on July 1, 2014. Critics argue that raising the minimum wage often prompts employers to reduce staff to keep up with labor overhead.

Search Warrants: This might be renamed the vampire law: A driver suspected of DUI who refuses to submit to or fails to complete a blood test can be served a search warrant to draw blood in a “reasonable, medically approved manner.” This law went into effect Sept. 20.

Jail survey: 7 in 10 felons are registered Democrats

Jail survey: 7 in 10 felons register as Democrats

A new study of how criminals vote found that most convicts register Democratic, a key reason in why liberal lawmakers and governors are eager for them to get back into the voting booth after their release.

“Democrats would benefit from additional ex-felon participation,” said the authoritative study in The Annals of the American Academy of Political and Social Science.

The authors, professors from the University of Pennsylvania and Stanford University, found that in some states, felons register Democratic by more than six-to-one. In New York, for example, 61.5 percent of convicts are Democrats, just 9 percent Republican. They also cited a study that found 73 percent of convicts who turn out for presidential elections would vote Democrat.

But despite recent moves in states to notify convicts that they can vote again, the study finds little evidence that they do, undercutting Democratic efforts to get them to the polls.

The study looked at three states which are reminding convicts that they can vote after leaving jail: New York, New Mexico and North Carolina.

They provided the following Democrat-to-Republican breakdown in felon party registration patterns:

– New York: 61.5 percent register Democratic, 9 percent register Republican

– New Mexico: 51.9 percent Democratic, 10.2 percent Republican

– North Carolina: 54.6 percent Democratic, 10.2 percent Republican

Obama To Americans: You Don't Deserve To Be Free

Obama To Americans: You Don't Deserve To Be Free

Obama’s Kansas speech is a remarkable document. In calling for more government controls, more taxation, more collectivism, he has two paragraphs that give the show away. Take a look at them.

"there is a certain crowd in Washington who, for the last few decades, have said, let’s respond to this economic challenge with the same old tune. “The market will take care of everything,” they tell us. If we just cut more regulations and cut more taxes–especially for the wealthy–our economy will grow stronger. Sure, they say, there will be winners and losers. But if the winners do really well, then jobs and prosperity will eventually trickle down to everybody else. And, they argue, even if prosperity doesn’t trickle down, well, that’s the price of liberty.

Now, it’s a simple theory. And we have to admit, it’s one that speaks to our rugged individualism and our healthy skepticism of too much government. That’s in America’s DNA. And that theory fits well on a bumper sticker. (Laughter.) But here’s the problem: It doesn’t work. It has never worked. (Applause.) It didn’t work when it was tried in the decade before the Great Depression. It’s not what led to the incredible postwar booms of the ’50s and ’60s. And it didn’t work when we tried it during the last decade. (Applause.) I mean, understand, it’s not as if we haven’t tried this theory.

Though not in Washington, I’m in that “certain crowd” that has been saying for decades that the market will take care of everything. It’s not really a crowd, it’s a tiny group of radicals–radicals for capitalism, in Ayn Rand’s well-turned phrase.

The only thing that the market doesn’t take care of is anti-market acts: acts that initiate physical force. That’s why we need government: to wield retaliatory force to defend individual rights.

Radicals for capitalism would, as the Declaration of Independence says, use government only “to secure these rights”–the rights to life, liberty, property, and the pursuit of happiness. (Yes, I added “property” in there–property rights are inseparable from the other three.)

That’s the political philosophy on which Obama is trying to hang the blame for the recent financial crisis and every other social ill. But ask yourself, are we few radical capitalists in charge? Have radical capitalists been in charge at any time in the last, oh, say 100 years?

I pick 100 years deliberately, because it was exactly 100 years ago that a gigantic anti-capitalist measure was put into effect: the Federal Reserve System. For 100 years, government, not the free market, has controlled money and banking. How’s that worked out? How’s the value of the dollar held up since 1913? Is it worth one-fiftieth of its value then or only one-one-hundredth? You be the judge. How did the dollar hold up over the 100 years before this government take-over of money and banking? It actually gained slightly in value.

Laissez-faire hasn’t existed since the Sherman Antitrust Act of 1890. That was the first of a plethora of government crimes against the free market.

Radical capitalists are just beginning to have a slight effect on the Right wing. The overwhelming majority on the Right are eclectic. Which is a nice way of saying inconsistent.

The typical Republican would never, ever say “the market will take care of everything.” He’d say, “the market will take care of most things, and for the other things, we need the regulatory-welfare state.”

They are for individualism–except when they are against it. They are against free markets and individualism not only when they agree with the Left that we must have antitrust laws and the Federal Reserve, but also when they demand immigration controls, government schools, regulatory agencies, Medicare, laws prohibiting abortion, Social Security, “public works” projects, the “social safety net,” laws against insider trading, banking regulation, and the whole system of fiat money.

Obama blames economic woes, some real some invented (“inequality”) on a philosophy and policy that was abandoned a century ago. What doesn’t exist is what he says didn’t work.

Obama absurdly suggests that timid, half-hearted, compromisers, like George W. Bush, installed laissez-faire capitalism–on the grounds that they tinkered with one or two regulations (Glass-Steagall) and marginal tax rates–while blanking out the fact that under the Bush administration, government spending ballooned, growing much faster than under Clinton, and 50,000 new regulations were added to the Federal Register.

The philosophy of individualism and the politics of laissez-faire would mean government spending of about one-tenth its present level. It would also mean an end to all regulatory agencies: no SEC, FDA, NLRB, FAA, OSHA, EPA, FTC, ATF, CFTC, FHA, FCC–to name just some of the better known of the 430 agencies listed in the federal register.

Even you, dear reader, are probably wondering how on earth anyone could challenge things like Social Security, government schools, and the FDA. But that’s not the point. The point is: these statist, anti-capitalist programs exist and have existed for about a century. The point is: Obama is pretending that the Progressive PGR +0.41% Era, the New Deal, and the Great Society were repealed, so that he can blame the financial crisis on capitalism. He’s pretending that George Bush was George Washington.

We radical capitalists say that it was the regulatory-welfare state that imploded in 2008. You may disagree, but let’s argue that out, rather than engaging in the Big Lie that what failed was laissez-faire and individualism.

The question is: in the messy mixture of government controls and remnants of capitalism, which element caused the Great Depression and the recent financial crisis?

We radical capitalists say that it was the regulatory-welfare state that imploded in 2008. You may disagree, but let’s argue that out, rather than engaging in the Big Lie that what failed was laissez-faire and individualism.

The question is: in the messy mixture of government controls and remnants of capitalism, which element caused the Great Depression and the recent financial crisis?

By raising that question, we uncover the fundamental: the meaning of capitalism and the meaning of government controls. Capitalism means freedom. Government means force.

Suddenly, the whole issue comes into focus: Obama is saying that freedom leads to poverty and force leads to wealth. He’s saying: “Look, we tried leaving you free to live your own life, and that didn’t work. You have to be forced, you have to have your earnings seized by the state, you have to work under our directions–under penalty of fines or imprisonment. You don’t deserve to be free.”

As a bit of ugly irony, this is precisely what former white slave-owners said after the Civil War: “The black man can’t handle freedom; we have to force him for his own good.” The innovation of the Left is to extend that viewpoint to all races.

Force initiated against free, innocent men is directed at stopping them from acting on their own thinking. It makes them, under threat of fines and imprisonment, act as the government demands rather than as they think their self-interest requires. That’s the whole point of threatening force: to make people act against their own judgment.

The radical, uncompromised, laissez-faire capitalism that Obama pretends was in place in 2008 is exactly what morality demands. Because, as Ayn Rand wrote in 1961: “No man has the right to initiate the use of physical force against others. . . . To claim the right to initiate the use of physical force against another man–the right to compel his agreement by the threat of physical destruction–is to evict oneself automatically from the realm of rights, of morality and of the intellect.”

Obama and his fellow statists have indeed evicted themselves from that realm.

Obama Admin Gets Judge To Release Radical Leftist Lawyer Lynne Stewart Who Conspired With Jihadist

Judge Orders ‘Compassionate Release’ Of Jailed Former Civil Rights Lawyer

The U.S. government ( OBAMA and his admin.) has asked a New York judge to release a dying former civil rights lawyer who was convicted in a terrorism case from prison.

The government made the request on behalf of Lynne Stewart in a letter to U.S. District Judge John Koeltl on Tuesday. Koeltl has said he cannot release her early without a recommendation for “compassionate release” from prison authorities.

Prosecutors said in their letter that the director of the Federal Bureau of Prisons was making the request along with prosecutors. The 74-year-old Stewart is not scheduled for release until August 2018. Prosecutors say she suffers from recurrent stage-four breast cancer.

Stewart has been imprisoned since 2009 after she was convicted of helping a blind Egyptian sheik, Omar Abdel-Rahman, communicate with his followers from prison.


NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) –A federal judge in Manhattan ordered a “compassionate release” Tuesday from prison for a dying former civil rights lawyer.

The U.S. government requested the release earlier in the day for Lynne Stewart, who was convicted in a terrorism case. Prosecutors say Stewart, 74, suffers from recurrent stage-four breast cancer. She was not scheduled to be released until August 2018.

U.S. District Judge John Koeltl had said he could not release her early without a recommendation for from prison authorities. The director of the Bureau of Prisons made the request through Preet Bharara, the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York.

“The defendant’s terminal medical condition and very limited life expectancy constitute extraordinary and compelling reasons that warrant the requested reduction” in her prison sentence, Koeltl’s order said.

He said Stewart will be released when her medical condition allows for it and travel arraignments can be made. She has been undergoing treatment in Carswell, Texas.

her lawyer said she’s “elated’” and that Stewart could be let out as early as Tuesday night.

Stewart has been imprisoned since 2009 after she was convicted of helping a blind Egyptian sheik, Omar Abdel-Rahman, communicate with his followers from prison.

Abdel-Rahman was convicted in 1996 of plotting to bomb a number of landmarks in New York City. He was sentenced to life in prison.

If she is released, Stewart would live with her son in Brooklyn, CNN reported.

Utah Asks Supreme Court to Block Gay Marriage

Utah Asks Supreme Court to Block Gay Marriage

Utah took its fight against gay marriage to the U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday, asking the high court to suspend same-sex unions that became legal when a judge struck down the state’s voter-approved ban.

The heavily Mormon state wants the marriages to stop while it appeals a judge’s decision, which said banning gay couples from marrying violates their right to equal treatment under the law.

In papers filed Tuesday with Justice Sonia Sotomayor, the state asked her to overturn court decisions to let the marriages go forward. Sotomayor handles emergency requests from Utah and other Rocky Mountain states. She can act by herself or get the rest of the court involved.

Nearly two-thirds of Utah's 2.8 million residents are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the official name of the Mormon church, and Mormons dominate the state's legal and political circles.

U.S. District Judge Robert Shelby's decision on Dec. 20 came as a shock to many in the state, which approved the ban on same-sex marriage in 2004.

Since the judge's decision, more than 900 gay couples in Utah have obtained marriage licenses. Shelby and the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals have already refused to halt weddings while the state appeals.

"Until the final word has been spoken by this Court or the Supreme Court on the constitutionality of Utah's marriage laws, Utah should not be required to enforce Judge Shelby's view of a new and fundamentally different definition of marriage," the state said in motion papers already filed at the appellate court.

The Mormon church was one of the leading forces behind California's short-lived ban on same-sex marriage, Proposition 8.

The church says it stands by its support for "traditional marriage" and hopes a higher court validates its belief that marriage is only between a man and woman.

Gov. Rick Perry: You can’t dress up the failures of Obamacare

Gov. Rick Perry: You can’t dress up the failures of Obamacare

By Rick Perry

The promise and potential I normally greet each New Year with is, this year, being tested by a great sense of peril as Americans face the full brunt of the disastrous impacts of Obamacare in 2014. The delays, deceit and debacles that marked Obamacare’s rollout in 2013 show no signs of slowing in the new year.

People all across the country have witnessed what a disaster this program has been from its earliest stages, ranging from the $600 million website debacle to the sad fact that President Barack Obama flat-out deceived the American people when he promised that those who like their coverage could keep it. To stem the bleeding, the administration is resorting to arbitrary delays for some Obamacare mandates, which only inject more confusion into the marketplace and with consumers.

Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius and the president are left with selling a faltering program to an American public that has rightfully become more and more concerned with what it’s learning about this law.

Much of what sold Obamacare in the first place was the administration’s assertions that we could trust them, and that even though nobody could explain precisely how or why, Obamacare would make everything better. It hasn’t. Sadly, it takes more than empty assertions to fix what ails Obamacare.

To start with, consider the nearly 6 million Americans estimated to have already lost their insurance thanks to Obamacare. This was not something the administration told us about, although it should have foreseen this catastrophe.

Instead, they claimed 7 million people would be signing up on the federal exchanges. That’s the number they estimated would be necessary to make the program financially feasible. To date, the administration estimates about 2 million people have signed up for insurance, far short of its target of 3.3 million by now.

The math gets worse heading into the new year. Starting in 2014, up to 80 million Americans might lose their employee-sponsored policies because those policies don’t comply with Obamacare specifications. And those fortunate enough to keep coverage will still face a host of health care taxes, fees, premium increases and increased out-of-pocket costs.

The sticker shock will be felt on every level, from small-business owners who’ll suddenly see their bottom line shrink or even vanish, to employees who could see their paycheck shrink dramatically as their premiums rise, or they face higher co-pays and deductibles. Or, worse yet, see their jobs vanish because their employer can’t afford to keep them on anymore. We’re already seeing reports of employers cutting employee hours to avoid Obamacare mandates.

Obamacare apologists may attempt to explain away all that by insisting these are transitional changes — even though it flies directly in the face of statements and promises to the contrary made by President Obama himself.

The truth is, these are real failures of this law, and they will profoundly affect every single American, whether they have coverage or not.

The insurance industry — already being forced to cover more people without seeing the promised influx of younger, healthier uninsured purchasing coverage to help cover costs — is being forced to cut costs and raise premiums, meaning less choice, less coverage and longer wait times for Americans at doctor’s offices and hospitals, despite paying more money out of their pockets.

Another consequence of Obamacare is the effort to cram more people into an already broken and costly Medicaid system without any reforms. Increasing income disregards, eliminating asset testing and forcing previously ineligible individuals into Medicaid all function as a backdoor expansion of Medicaid. Yet Obamacare’s own system to transfer Medicaid applicants to Texas doesn’t even work.

Despite what they say, not only is Obamacare not solving any of our health care issues, it’s making them far worse. Anyone who tells you otherwise is selling you something — something you don’t want and can’t afford.

Another Gun From Obama and Eric Holder's “Fast And Furious” Turns Up At Deadly Crime Scene In Mexico

Another Gun From Obama and Eric Holder's “Fast And Furious” Turns Up At Deadly Crime Scene In Mexico

Five people were shot dead in a gunfight with Mexican police in the Sonora beach resort of Puerto Peñasco, or Rocky Point, early Wednesday.

Sonora Attorney General Carlos Navarro said the gunfight took place in a tourist zone called Sandy Beach. It’s a popular destination for Arizona travelers, and it has left some American visitors afraid to stay.

Steve Heisler was sleeping when he woke to helicopters firing at people on the ground.

“It was a full military assault,” Heisler said. “Those guys were on a mission and serious about who they were going after.”

Heisler lives near Sandy Beach with his wife. They had been thinking of leaving Rocky Point, and Wednesday’s shooting “certianly puts us over the top,” he said.

Sonora state police said the gunmen had fired at federal police in the city and a car chase began sometime late Tuesday night.
