If we learned anything about Barack Obama in his first term it is that when he starts repeating the same idea over and over, what´s on his mind is something else. The first term´s over-and-over subject was "the wealthiest 1%." Past some point, people wondered why he kept beating these half-dead horses. After the election, we knew. It was to propagandize the targeted voting base that would provide his 4% popular-vote margin of victory—very young voters and minorities. They believed. He won. The second-term over-and-over, elevated in his summer speech tour, is the shafting of the middle class. But
It´s getting pretty nauseating to now listen to all the politicians, show hosts, etc on the right telling us all how nasty 0baba is acting and conducting business in the white house how he treats the Constitution, etc. and YET... no one and nothing is being done to stop him. I listen to Mark Levin listing all the sins that 0bamba is committing against America and yet NOTHING is in place to stop him? No one is in place to cut him down to size. I´ve written my congressmen, senators, etc and they NEVER answer that question. What is going on? What someone is going against the LAWS of this country is no one big enough to stop this thug? And if that´s the case then that HUGE mistake needs to be recified to protect us from the evil of his ilk! I´m shocked that no will tell me the answer and mostly no one is man enough to take him down!!!! Sickening! That means that any other thug can do this AND more to us! Anyone...can anyone answer my pleas?
So we´re going to allow him to set up his own Dictatorship without firing a shot? Without fighting this war?
Where is Congress on this?
Why is no one saying he´s abusing his power?
Why is he permitted this unchecked destruction of our Constitution?
Why is everyone except US silent?
Mark Levin´s "We The People" protest should be attended by everyone who is mobile, able-bodied and wants this country to survive as founded. If we don´t storm the barricades, we lose and will die by apathy.
What will it take? The subversion of the Constitution now has 24 or more Czars, busily writing laws and controlling us. The Czars answer to no one. No egregious usurpation seems to gain any traction. Ø postpones a mandated part of Obamacare; no one gets upset enough to act. Those public policy decisions which Congress will not enact will be instituted by fiat. No more coal powerplants. Ethanol mandates. Mandatory unions for health employees. No voter identification. It reminds me of The Once and Future King, in which young Arthur visits the world of the ants, in which everything not prohibited is mandatory. It also reminds me of Animal Farm, when the pigs join with the rest of the oppressors and party on. Please go look up these old classics. We need a bill of particulars such as in our Declaration. Hmm. How did that American revolution get started, now? What will be our modern Boston Tea Party? Thoughts, anyone?
If we the people can see and understand what Obama is up to, why can´t the Republicans in leadership positions get it? They are toothless old men gnawing on their last piece of political theater. How long will these "investigations to nowhere" go on? How long will Harry Reid be able to table any bill sent to him from the House? How long will John McCain praise the qualities of Hillary Clinton, the very woman who denied security to American embassies? How long will Obama´s lies go unchallenged? How pathetic is an opposition party that allows a president to get away with such blatant overreach? Until Republicans treasure the Constitution more than they treasure their own policitcal backsides, nothing will change. Politicians are destroying the blood, sweat and tears of millions of Americans because they fear to challenge this would-be dictator. Shame on them.
This is exactly why the damnocrats dumped their presumed shoe-in female nominee for the clean, articulate (sort of) black guy. They knew that he would be able to get away with ANYTHING because skin color trumps EVERYTHING.
Heard my former Congressman (before redistricting) on local talk radio this morning, Rep. Frank Wolf, talk about the lack of interest by RepublicanHhouse Leadership in having a special committee look into Benghazi so that ther is one committee focused on that horror - not several going all over the place.
Our founders designed three branches to check and balance each other but now, nothing. I am more disgusted with the House Leadership for allowing Obama to get away with his abuse of power that Nixon could only have dreamed of. Yes, indeed #14, the articulate black man as president and one wonders why his supporters are fanning the fires of racial grievance - in the yaer 2013...
There is no better example of the basic character of the liberal/left than Obama. The desire for dictatorial control, is obvious..........Problem, it´s only going to get worse............keep your powder dry.
Obama has been a Constitutional crisis since he came on the scene. It began with his eligibility. Sheriff Joe has since proved he´s a fraud. Since something that fundamental can´t get Congress to at least hold hearings then we´re stuck with him. All we can try to do is to minimize the damage. If keeping him buried in scandals will help then great. However, I´m afraid he just uses them as cover.
Egyptians, gave up on government and turned to their military. Obama´s America is stumbling toward the same situation, although the nation may be too apathetic and vacuous at this point for any of it to matter.
This is our last stand…please sign this petition at the link below and pass it on….
Senators Lee, Cruz, Paul are leading the charge to defund Obamacare…
Please sign the petition at the link and call your senators and congressmen…
If death panels, the government having direct debit access to your bank accounts, a government takeover of 1/6 of the economy, spying on you and other losses of your freedoms, the iRS running your healthcare…are chilling to you…then sign this petition, make a few calls..make yourself heard and pass this on.
On October 1st, millions of Americans will be required to enroll in Obamacare and could lose access to their doctors and be forced to pay higher premiums and higher taxes. But there’s still time to stop it. Republicans in Congress can stop Obamacare if they refuse to fund it.
Sign the petition and tell Congress: Don’t Fund Obamacare!
The road to hell, now known as Obamacare, …..is not paved with good intentions…..It passed on Christmas Eve through threats, blackmail and dirty deals…
Make a difference….Sign the petition…Voice your dismay…..And pass it on…
#22..yes egypt turned to their military...and as bad as i feel for saying what i am about to,this is the reality..we cannot rely on our military...they have been infiltrated at the highest levels...we are on our own
I would say that the inept dude was concentrating on controlling the US citizens and the ones he can´t use controlling doubletime while allowing Putin to run all over him--Putin didn´t dare do the rearming of Cur George Bush or blatantly taking in our political debris like Snowden (another laugh-Snowden the moral purist in Russia!)
But then in comes the communist mentor, Frank Marshall Davis and we may see that obaMao is doing it on purpose. And their was a time that the o-man said in frustration that he had found "you can´t change it from the inside".
The difference in socialism and communism is? The legacy of a the o-man and our democrat party is a dark one.
It seems that the current GOP leadership is more concerned in keeping their own jobs that doint anything for the average American. All they seem to do is NOT doing anything that might upset some set of voters. There is no one who will step forward and actually LEAD. And that is why I have continually advocated that we, the people, stand up and exercise our 2nd Amendment rights. But, what we desperately need is a handful of fearless men and women to come forward and LEAD us in overthrowing this tyranical government and return to the type of country that was intended. And we can do it if enough of us have the courage to do so.
Several posters, starting with #4 echo my feelings of anger, frustration and helplessness. We can moan and complain on the blogs, write and write our congress-people, vote and have our votes stolen, and still this communist beast gets away with breaking our laws and urinating on our constitution.
Where are the people we elected to stop such behavior? Sitting in their ivory tower with a 10% approval rating. As long as they juggle their Santa Clause act and their kumbaya singing with the “people back home,” we will continue to slide into the Marxist sink hole.
I want to mention this somewhere: obozo on the front page of amazon!!!??? I would like to close my eyes and ears to never see this racist commie again, but in this case I have to refuse my life - no amazon, no google, no American car, no TV, no phone... This is what is happening when you forget that life demands from us to be attentive each and every step, but we let fascists/commies seize media, education, entertainment, and many industries. Like I said - they got ahold of google, amazon, twitter, facebook, ATT, Verizon...
90% of congress has been either framed or is guilty of trespasses that the O administration has at their disposal to use as blackmail. So all we conservatives get is a bit of blustering/posturing but no beef. Same could be said for the Dems who are closer to the middle.
Our only answer is Term Limits & a whole new congress that can´t be bought/blackmailed into silence. We have to have a grass roots (i.e. Tea Party) swell that puts the new representatives in their seats with the campaign commitment to immediately legislate Term Limits.
I see no other way to save America. And it´s a long shot.
If the unlawful overthrow of the US Government has already happened (and anyone paying attention knows that it has via voter fraud and Tea Party suppression), is the "Violent" overthrow still a crime ?
Or....is it just too nit-picky to worry about that when the last great hope for human liberty is circling the drain ???
Research the death threats against GWB. The Chatanooga paper editor was fired for telling Bozo to go FO * ( Wash. Times today ) . Totalitarianism cometh. Can we still hope Dear Rulers head is cut off ? .Well, many said so of ol George W and his British counterpart . I´ll call if the STASI shows up.
#33 echoes a question that´s been on my mind: what is the duty of a citizen when their republic has been seized by dictators?
To my mind the socialist totalitarians, of both parties, have broken the social contract and I no longer owe alliegence or obedience to their unlawful edicts. We will continue to live our lives and when or if we bump into bureaucratic regulatory enforcers we will not comply. We will feign ignorance, be slothful in our lack of response, deny, and delay. No government hack will be allowed on our property without a warrant. We will defend our land, our liberty, and our Faith. IHLG
House-Senate negotiators are close to a modest budget accord to avoid another government shutdown, but suddenly the White House is introducing a last-minute demand. Five years into an economic recovery that President Obama often hails as miraculous, he wants to extend unemployment benefits one more time. Maybe it´s time to consider whether the big expansion of unemployment insurance has increased joblessness. In 2009 the Obama Administration and Congress extended jobless benefits for up to 99 weeks. The point was to help people through the recession, but now the jobless rate is 7%, down from 10%, and the White House still wants
Media: Russian ruler Vladimir Putin dissolved his state news agency on Monday, apparently for being insufficiently fawning. President Obama doesn´t have to worry about that with the dominant media here. The ex-KGB officer ruling an eighth of the planet´s inhabited land for nearly a decade and a half now, with no end in sight thanks to rigged elections, has abolished RIA Novosti and replaced it with a kind of reborn Radio Moscow. "Radio Putin," as it should be called, will propagandize to the rest of the world. RIA actually described the purge it is victim of as heralding "a tightening of state
Hysteria: The British Daily Star reports that Britain is in for 30 years of extreme "killer winter storms" due to climate change. There is, of course, no way anyone can know this for sure. But that's never stopped the alarmists. (Snip) In its "Extreme Weather Events in Europe" report issued last week, the European Academies Science Advisory Council bedeviled the populace about a future of deadly heat waves, floods, droughts and deep freezes. The report, which is the basis for the Daily Star's eye-catching journalism, suggests that individual member states of the European Union "will need to develop and share information
Propaganda: A lesson plan for third-graders linked to a controversial federal education initiative makes sure America´s next generation does not forget who is the one we have been waiting for. During the Soul Train Awards in 2012, comedian and actor Jamie Foxx exhorted a wildly cheering crowd to "first of all (give) honor to god, and our lord and savior Barack Obama," exhibiting the all-too-widespread hero worship that casts rational thought aside and labels even legitimate criticism as virtual blasphemy. The same cult of personality is creeping into lesson plans and reading materials being created under the guise of the platform for
I read at Breitbart that the Satan-worshipping group Satanic Temple wants its very own statue outside the Oklahoma Statehouse in Oklahoma City alongside a Ten Commandments monument. USA Today reports that the Republican legislature invited such insidious activity by authorizing the privately funded Ten Commandments statue on the Capitol grounds. If they were to decline the commission of a Satanic icon, it could constitute an unconstitutional infringement on the First Amendment. The ACLU has already filed a lawsuit for the removal of the monument. As Lucien Greaves, the spokesman for Satanic Temple,
TWO THINGS ALL conservatives love are narratives of decline and talking about conservatism. Put those together and you have the popular argument that conservatism ain’t what it used to be. The chart of that supposed decline, if you were to draw it Ascent of Man style, would start with Edmund Burke looking intelligent and walking upright, followed by William F. Buckley as Australopithecus, slouching. The present age would be represented by some knuckle-dragging, prognathous creature like Rush Limbaugh or Sean Hannity. First comes very smart, then pretty smart, and then not very smart at all. Some of those on the right
DOHA, Qatar -- Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel has ordered the U.S. military to transport troops from Burundi into the Central African Republic to help quell the latest upsurge in violence there. Hagel approved the order after speaking with French Minister of Defense Jean-Yves Le Drian Monday night from Afghanistan where he was visiting troops. Le Drian asked the U.S. to help get African troops quickly into the country to prevent the violence there from spreading, said Pentagon spokesman Carl Woog. There are more than 1,000 French troops in the Central African Republic, where Christian armed fighters launched an attack
RUSH: Do you know, folks, that you can keep your doctor after all if you´re willing to pay more? That´s from Zeke Emanuel, brother of Rahm Emanuel, who´s one of the architects of Obamacare. And you can. If you´re willing to pay more, you can keep your doctor, and nobody ever said anything else. "Obama didn´t lie to you," he said. "It´s just a matter of choice." No, no, it´s not. We´re losing choice. I was thinking about something. Those of you that were not alive in the 1950s hear a lot about it and how the old fuddy-duddies want
RUSH: I kid you not, the Daily Caller: "Liberals Want to Stop Men From Checking Out Women." Liberals want to make it a crime for men to ogle or otherwise look at or otherwise admire or otherwise dream about or otherwise fantasize about or otherwise look at and laugh, whatever, women. "In the progressive future, men will not be able to look at women´s bodies because that is a terrible thing to do -- and science says so. "Researchers have offered a definitive report into the science of the male ´objectifying gaze,´" and that is in quotes, "in the December
RUSH: There´s a fascinating couple of stories on wealth. Do you know, folks, one of the things, talking about wealth and poverty, the poor, the rich, when I endeavor to explain American exceptionalism -- and, by the way, if I may be a little Obama-like here. In the foreword that I wrote for Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims -- remember that book written for children 10 to 13, primarily for everybody. I wrote my definition of American exceptionalism in a way that young people can understand it. At least I tried to. My uncle read that portion at our
RUSH: Well, they tried to make me the villain in the soap opera about the pope, but it just didn´t take off this time. They´re still out there trying. There´s a left-wing Catholic group with 6,000 signatures to a petition. They´re a left-wing, pro-abortion bunch of Catholics, which means they´re not really Catholic. Anyway, they´re trying to raise all kinds of problems with this, but they´ve not been able to. I have a column here in my formerly nicotine-stained fingers by Shikha Dalmia at Reason.com. It´s entitled, "The Pope´s Self-Defeating Anti-Capitalist Rant." The piece does not mention me, but it
President Obama has found someone to blame for the Affordable Care Act´s rolling failures besides Republicans. ObamaCare is the government´s fault, not his. On Thursday, Mr. Obama dropped by American University for a heart to heart with Chris Matthews, and the MSNBC host wondered who in the executive branch is responsible for the botched health-care rollout. Mr. Obama listed a few impersonal culprits including "cynicism," "Washington gridlock" and "the management of government," but he then drifted into another classic. "The challenge, I think, that we have going forward is not so much my personal management style or particular issues around White House
The question all week long was this: Who are you going to believe, an illegal alien or the president of the United States of America? Obviously, if it’s a president who once went by an alias, Barry Soetoro, you go with Uncle Omar, 100 percent, no questions asked. And so it was that the White House finally admitted to another, uh, misstatement — despite previous denials, Barack/Barry did sleep on his beloved Uncle Omar’s couch in Cambridge when he first moved here to attend Harvard Law School (speaking of which, we’re still waiting to see the president’s grades and his LSAT scores). But the
How do you get your arms around the catastrophe known as Obamacare? Is it even possible? At this point, I’m not sure it is. The list of individual disasters which threaten to ruin one-sixth of the U.S. economy and what has been, up until now, the best healthcare system in the world is exhaustive, and exhausting. The examples I will identify here barely scratch the surface. First but by no means foremost, we have the supposedly new and improved HealthCare.gov. Except it’s not, even the visible part. Stories still abound of people still failing to get in or to get through the enrollment
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a new five-year strategic plan to improve safety for elderly drivers and passengers. Although they are statistically among the safest on the road, the number of older drivers is increasing dramatically — and with it, that group´s numbers of injuries and deaths. Since 2003, the population of older adults, defined as age 65 and older, has increased by 20% and the number of licensed older drivers increased by 21% to 35 million in 2012, according to NHTSA. Last year, NHTSA reported that 5,560 people older than 65 died and 214,000 were injured
A veteran Washington adviser who has worked for four Presidents on both sides of the political aisle said that the stunning Government Accountability Report report that found President Barack Obama has not had a one-on-one meeting with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius since the passage of Obamacare over three years ago is an indictment of the entire White House operation and shows that the Obama administration has bordered on "malfeasance." "I have no doubt the White House is right, that Secretary Sebelius was in several group meetings with the president about health care," Gergen caveated, "but the whole
President Barack Obama’s Facebook page on Saturday posted a message honoring the dead from Pearl Harbor—accompanied by a picture of Obama descending the stairs next to the Pearl Harbor Memorial. The picture barely fits the name of the Arizona Memorial so it can frame Obama in the foreground. The post´s statement reads: Today, with solemn pride and reverence, let us remember those who fought and died at Pearl Harbor, acknowledge everyone who carried their legacy forward, and reaffirm our commitment to upholding the ideals for which they served. President Obama The Obama Administration´s current shipbuilding plan shrinks the size of
Barack Obama did not tell the whole story this autumn when he tried to make the case that Bashar al-Assad was responsible for the chemical weapons attack near Damascus on 21 August. In some instances, he omitted important intelligence, and in others he presented assumptions as facts. Most significant, he failed to acknowledge something known to the US intelligence community: that the Syrian army is not the only party in the country’s civil war with access to sarin, the nerve agent that a UN study concluded – without assessing responsibility – had been used in the rocket attack. In the months before the attack,
Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the hapless, goalpost-shifting so-called "architect" of Obamacare, told Fox News´ Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday that President Barack Obama´s promise "if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor" was absolutely true--with one important caveat: if you like your doctor, "you can pay for it." Wallace grilled Dr. Emanuel, challenging his false claims that California´s enrollment was keeping pace with the percentage of the young population necessary to keep the system afloat, and pointing out that the president´s promise on doctors would collapse once people lost their insurance or their
Just how much do many Hollywood liberals hate conservatives? In an interview with Playboy, Ben Affleck said, "When I watch a guy [on film] I know is a big Republican, part of me thinks, I probably wouldn’t like this person if I met him": PLAYBOY: You developed a political profile campaigning for presidential candidates Al Gore, John Kerry and Barack Obama. How did that come about? AFFLECK: I grew up in a house with a mother who was a teacher and a Freedom Rider—very left-wing Democrats living in a heterogeneous working-class neighborhood. I picked up a lot of those values there, and I
The U.S. isn´t called "America the Beautiful" for nothing. Each year, millions of tourists come from home and abroad to see the country´s majestic landscape and iconic sites, from the Grand Canyon to the Statue of Liberty. But there are also cool, quirky attractions, like Vermont´s Ben & Jerry´s Factory and Tennessee´s Graceland, the former home of Rock and Roll King Elvis Presley. From California to New York and everywhere in between, the country is chock-full of incredible attractions that keep luring in visitors. Here are the best tourist attractions in every state.
MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry opened her program over the weekend with a commentary about the Affordable Care Act’s colloquial moniker: “Obamacare.” She said that the word was originally created as a “derogatory term,” designed by white men as a way to delegitimize President Barack Obama and his achievement. However, she said that the term will soon be synonymous with all of Obama’s accomplishments and she urged her audience to use the term with pride. “I want to talk today about a controversial word. It’s a word that has been with us for years, and like it or not, it’s indelibly
Call me Grinch, call me Scrooge. Call me Lord Voldemort of the Yuletide. None could be worse than sending me a holiday card with glossy photographs of your lovely, smiling family. My wife, Emily, and I place your cards like trophies on our shelves, continuing an old-school practice that began about 175 years ago as a way of maintaining relationships as families and friends moved far and wide. Today’s cards may appear more personalized — with photos of spouses, kids and pets, and distribution lists much smaller than a sprawling collection of Facebook friends. But when I flip over the photo
Chris Matthews is crazy. Nevertheless, when left-wingers talk openly with one another, their craziness can be revealing. That is the case, I think, with this remarkable MSNBC clip. Matthews, fresh from his kneepad interview with President Obama, praises what he terms a uniquely brilliant insight by Al Sharpton: South Africa’s white politicians of the apartheid era were more patriotic than today’s Republicans: I haven’t heard anything as smart as what I heard Reverend Sharpton say a moment go in five years. The difference between the way F.W. de Klerk handled the need for change and the election – democratic election
