Obama has created a fantasy peace, just as with ObamaCare he created a fantasy healthcare program.
If you think ObamaCare is bad, just wait till you hear the new “peace” agreement that is due to be imposed on the Middle East over the coming weeks. Even if it works – a giant IF – it will make the world much more dangerous: Continue reading →
If no one else, WND, the New York Post, and now Fox News have started paying serious attention to an urban pastime known as “the knockout game” or occasionally as “polar bear hunting,” a phenomenon that has caused at least seven deaths and countless serious injuries.
The “polar bear” refers to the invariably white or at least non-black victim of a hunt by a young black male, usually one of a pack of the same. The hunters tend to prey on those who seem vulnerable. This includes old people, women, children, and, most often, clueless male liberals– like the Pittsburgh teacher seen in this video — who have trained themselves not to “profile” young black men even when they approach with malice in their eyes.

Was it the pioneer who rode horseback across the Midwest, settled in a wide-open space without paved roads, grocery stores or hospitals, and had to build his own home, cultivate his own food and educate his own children?
Or was it the less-adventuresome brother he left behind in an Eastern city who lived next door to a hospital, across the street from a public school and kitty corner from a grocery store — but in his later years could only get to work if he rode a public transit line and if the transit line ran on time?
I vote for the pioneer. He was not dependent on government. His brother was. Continue reading →
Before committing the blasphemous and daring act of openly criticizing Dear Leader, it is obligatory that I first purify my spirit by reciting Dear Leader’s prayer.
That way, the Black community doesn’t condemn my soul for placing critical thinking over Black solidarity. It’s common knowledge that Blacks who criticize Dear Leader are considered “sell-outs” while Whites are labeled “racists.”
Even the Congressional Black Caucus knows that Dear Leader is untouchable. Congresswoman Maxine Waters once confessed to a Detroit crowd:
“We don’t put pressure on the president, let me tell you why. We don’t put pressure on the president because ya’ll love the president. You love the president. You’re very proud…to have a black man [in the White House] …First time in the history of the United States of America. If we go after the president too hard, you’re going after us.” Continue reading →
The side-by-side comparisons of President Obama’s statements then and now are devastating. Especially the “period.” Period here is no punctuation mark. It’s a way of underscoring the word of the President of the United States.
For him to have made such unqualified assurances to the American people — not once but dozens of times — and for us to learn that he always knew that promise could not be kept — will haunt his presidency. He has impeached himself.
The president’s word has been called “the coin of the realm.” Well, we don’t have a realm, and we have far fewer coins these days. But the point is made: His word has value. Or had value. Continue reading →
How goes the captain of RMS Obamacare as water pours through the open holes and hatches of what was supposed to be a masterpiece of social engineering? How does he feel as the forward deck of his eponymous vessel sinks beneath the waves while the stern lifts high into the air — cracking the doomed ship into two?
Does he say a prayer for those he has condemned to an early death — like Edie Littlefield Sundby, who wrote an article (“You Also Can’t Keep Your Doctor,” WSJ, Nov. 4) describing how she has survived stage-4 gall bladder cancer for almost seven years, but how her existing medical insurance has been canceled effective Dec. 31 , leaving her with no hope of finding an affordable replacement through the government health exchange that would enable her to keep her lifesaving team of doctors in place?
Does he grieve for those condemned to live in straitened circumstances — forced to pay two, three or even ten times as much for the same or worse coverage? According to some experts, that may be as many as hundred million people by the end of 2014 when the employer mandate goes into effect. Continue reading →
Industrial Policy: Four years ago, the insurance industry decided to get in bed with President Obama to help him get his health reform passed. But as soon as things started to go wrong, guess who Obama blamed?
Soon after President Obama won the 2008 election, the big insurance industry lobby laid down its arms. Instead of fighting a government takeover of health care as it did in 1994 — it announced it would partner up.
“Universal coverage is within reach,” said Karen Ignagni, head of the America’s Health Insurance Plans trade group. And just as the president signed Obama-Care into law, AHIP teamed up with a big liberal health reform lobby, Families USA, to form Enroll America and “make reform work.”
But whatever goodwill the industry hoped to gain by this was short-lived. Once ObamaCare’s inherent flaws started to surface, Obama and his liberal chorus immediately pointed their fingers at evil insurers. Continue reading →
If you like your health insurance, tough. Progressives have long put their collectivist schemes ahead of individual liberty.
“If [you] already have health insurance, you will keep your health insurance,” President Obama declared in his 2012 State of the Union address. The oft-repeated promise was one of the left’s central arguments in favor of Obamacare, a salve for the right’s painful warnings about the destructive effects of the law. And it was all a lie. Continue reading →
Scandal: In recent days, President Obama has claimed ignorance about spying on allies and the ObamaCare meltdown. How can it be this president is always the last to know whenever anything goes wrong in his administration?
Even though the NSA tapped the phones of German Chancellor Angela Merkel some time ago, President Obama claims he didn’t know anything about it until after an internal review he ordered earlier this year.
Why should he? After all, “the president doesn’t sign off on this stuff,” one official said. Continue reading →
There’s a reason for why education sucks and why it’s never going to be fixed, and that’s not the only hard hitting truths that George Carlin shares in this video. If what he says resonates with you then share it with your friends!
This from CNN??? WOW – maybe someone is waking up…
Experts say the major problems with the Obamacare website can’t reasonably be solved before the end of 2013, and the best fix would be to start over from scratch.
After assessing the website, Dave Kennedy, the CEO of information-security company Trusted Sec, estimates that about 20% of Healthcare.gov needs to be rewritten. With a whopping 500 million lines of code, according to a recent New York Times report, Kennedy believes fixing the site would probably take six months to a year. Continue reading →
Look out Americans! Obama may be giving the Canadian company behind healthcare.gov’s glitch-ridden website a pass for reasons other than you may think. CGI is famous in the U.S. as ObamaCare website builders, and infamous in Canada as the company that built the $2.7 billion plus busted gun registry.
Make that the $2.7 billion plus Canadian LIBERAL Government gun registry for which the Canadian taxpayer is still paying through the nose some 20 years later.
President Barack Obama who threw temper tantrums in getting his way on last week’s government shutdown, is curiously calm when it comes to a $292-plus million website that’s still bogged down by a potential 5 million lines of bad code.
Could it be that the website that doesn’t work is a diversion for something else Obama doesn’t want people thinking about, like a computer driven gun registry? Continue reading →
Whether you love her or hate her – you can’t disagree with her spot-on commentary here. (Ed.)
America is suffering from an epic case of Armageddon fatigue.
Budget showdown, government shutdown, debt ceiling debacle—the stakes are real but the establishment seems to feed off the chaos they create as a means to foment fear and outrage and translate it into campaign donations for themselves.
Look closely and you’ll see that something seismic is going on under the surface of the manufactured chaos in D.C.
Washington has morphed into an extortion racket, a place where members of the permanent political class threaten to inflict legislative and regulatory pain to extract campaign donations that they can then siphon into the pockets of themselves and their family members. Continue reading →
No major legislation has ever been passed like Obamacare and I’m using the word “passed” pretty loosely.
It became law without both houses ever voting on the same bill. (Say, is the Constitution considered “settled law”?) Not one Republican voted for it and a lot of Democrats immediately wished they hadn’t.
Historically, big laws have been enacted with large, bipartisan majorities. In 1935, President Roosevelt enacted Social Security with a 372-33 vote in the House and 77-6 in the Senate.
In 1965, Medicare passed in the Senate 70-24 and the House 307-116, with the vast majority of Democrats supporting this Ponzi-scheme and Republicans roughly split. Continue reading →
Last week on “The O’Reilly Factor,” I recalled how Barack Obama spoke in 2008 about the “fundamental transformation of the nation.” After five years of his presidency, we see the enormous success he’s had in achieving it.
The objective was always to move America away from a nation built on individual liberty and economic freedom and toward a government welfare and dependency state. Socialism, communism, statism, leftism — in the end it doesn’t matter what you call it, because what matters is what’s being carried out…and its consequences.
Radical wealth redistribution, class warfare, socialized medicine, the atomization of American society, divisive identity politics, the war on success, the loss of our Triple A credit rating, the retrenchment of U.S. power abroad, the gutting of our military, the erosion of our international credibility.

The audio in the above video was originally recorded sometime in 1964 or ’65. The Beatles arrived in 1964. I joined the U.S. Army in the Fall of ’65 and by ’68 I was flying over the rice paddies on Southeast Asia.
The year is 2013 – and the hand-basket is nigh. We have arrived! The end is near…
Last month, as the President, HHS Commissar Kathleen Sebelius, and their media toadies hyped the imminent launch of Obamacare’s dysfunctional insurance exchanges, few bothered to observe the 56th anniversary of “E-Day.” Don’t remember E-Day? This, believe it or not, was how the delusional leadership of Ford Motor Co. referred to the September 1957 rollout of another great American flop — the Edsel. That misbegotten vehicle, whose goofy name has long since become synonymous with “spectacular failure,” had much in common with Obamacare. Both were based on bad ideas, full of much-ballyhooed features that didn’t work, and were despised by the public.
The bad ideas for both boondoggles were hatched as little more than marketing ploys. “The idea for the Edsel,” as the Washington Post later reported, “came from Ford executives who were thinking about market niches when they should have been thinking about cars.” In the case of Obamacare, the idea came from campaign aides looking for a catchy sound bite that could be used by an obscure Illinois Senator running for President. He needed to say something about an issue to which he hadn’t given much thought. Thus, without any serious policy discussion, they suggested that he simply announce his intention to pass universal health care by the end of his first term: “Thus was born Obamacare.” Continue reading →
Ya know, folks, I find it really unbelievable that anyone would believe they were going to get something for nothing. Who did all these people think was going to pay for those premiums – the unemployed? the welfare mama who has one brat after the next? the local neighborhood dope-head or dope dealer?
Amazing how fast their eyes get opened when it’s their paycheck taking a hit!!!- Lynn Stuter
“Aw Sapphire – don’ do me dis way!”
Back in 2008, when then-candidate Obama promised Joe the Plumber and the rest of America that he intended to spread the wealth around, most democrat and liberal voters embraced the notion of wealth redistribution under the guise of equality. A universal health care plan, that would be free for all Americans, was the promise from the candidate of hope and change.
Tens of millions of Americans jumped on the bandwagon waving their flags, fainting at his appearances, and fawning over his every word.
None ever thought about where the money would come from for all this new found wealth he promised to bestow upon them.
But those who understand that socialism, communism and governance by the collective are failed experiments, warned where that money would come from. It would be taken by force from the toils of the middle class, and it’d impoverish them in the process. Continue reading →
This should be copied to every person in Congress……. and the media too. – Granny
Dear President Obama,
You strike me as the sort of man who spends a lot of time staring at his own reflection. I wonder, what do you see when you gaze so admiringly at yourself? What image do you find in that mirror of yours? Let me guess: a graceful Greek god with a golden crown, draped in luxurious robes, perched on a giant, magnificent throne atop a mountain in the sky? You see a throng of angels singing your praises and masses of subservient peasants prostrated before you, trembling with fear and awe? You see a man who is more than a man, and a president who transcends the presidency; you see a historic figure of immortal importance?
Yeah, that’s what I thought, and I can’t blame you, Mr. President. By all accounts, you’ve always been an arrogant, haughty narcissist and that was before you became president. Your supporters and your enemies may argue over whether you descended from heaven on the back of a Pegasus, or were birthed from the bowels of Hell to bring about a Biblical apocalypse, but they both agree on one thing: you are a figure of great significance and immense power. You are either the anti-Christ or the Second Coming, with no room for anything in-between. Surely, this talk might cause even a humble man to slip into a state of vanity and pride, so I can only imagine what it must do to a man such as yourself, already so aloof and so conceited.
