Saturday Night Live: Obama
ridicules Republicans at
Congressional Black Caucus gala

Washington Times, by Dave Boyer

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 9/21/2013 11:46:34 PM

Speaking at the annual Congressional Black Caucus dinner, President Obama excoriated congressional Republicans Saturday night for risking a government shutdown, and vowed to stop their efforts to defund his health-care plan. “It is time for these folks to stop governing by crisis,” Mr. Obama said at the Washington Convention Center. “Some want to shut down the government rather than provide people with health care!” Referring to Republicans’ strategy to defund Obamacare, the president said he wanted to speak “as clearly as I can.” “It’s not going to happen,” he said. The administration and congressional Republicans are on a collision course over a

He actually has the nerve to accuse others of "governing by crisis", when that´s page 01-50 of his own playbook.

No one has ever told him "no" before. Everyone has always gone out of their way to make him feel that he is the smartest guy in the room. After all the msm has called him brilliant and "god like". But as usual he is not the problem we are. We cannot begin to comprehend his majesty, the aura of his superior mind and his goodness. Bobby Knight once made a comment about rape. He said, "Just lay back and enjoy it". That is exactly what obama and the dems want us to do.

Dear Mr. Obama,

It is not the purpose nor duty nor function of the American government to "provide people with health care". We thought we´d made that crystal clear. Cease and desist, sir, from your surreptitious attacks upon our work.

#12, Bob Knight didn´t say that. It was Clayton Williams, said while he was running for governor against the Left´s beloved Ann Richards. Cost him just about every woman´s vote in Texas.

This is the samecrowd of people who lay off teachers,cops and firemen when the budget gets tight.They use government enforced opression on people like the tea parties getting tax exemptions,while fast tracking liberal non profits.

So all these clowns are yucking it up over a bill that´s costing thousands of jobs or hour redections and sending valuable doctors towards the exit sign.

Barry & the Congressional Black Caucus have done more damage against black citizens than anyone alive, past or present. Bad schools and refusing to give them vouchers for a decent education; highest unemployment rate of any group; lowest wages for anyone who manages to get a job; low expectations and free money in return for a vote; want them kept on the plantation; etc. Morons and liars all.

Methinks he doth protest too much! It appears that Obama is really worried about this. His key socialist/communist legislation is now at risk, as it should be.

Actually, Obama himself should be scorned and thrown out for the destructive damage he´s done to our fair Republic.

Obama is a classic narcissist. In his mind, nothing is ever his fault. He will always place blame on others because it is in his makeup to do so. Lack of accountability by others reinforces this behavior. It is who he is. Rational adults recognize this behavior. The enablers ignore it. We all suffer because of it.

#13, I´m with you. It is not the job of government to provide healthcare. It is not a RIGHT to have it. It is an individual choice and that is a responsibility and a privilege. We all have a God given right to twenty-four hours in a day. What we do with them is our CHOICE.

Absolutely Yes, we need to help those in need. In this country not one person is denied healthcare. It is not and should not be offered with down pillows and ragu beef. There are changes that need to be made, but even pre-existing condition coverage is not a RIGHT. If someone spends their life throwing their money around,abuses their health, and then fails to pay for healthcare in increments, i.e. insurance or savings, then let them pay at the door. Most of us are not capable of covering the high cost of healthcare from our back pocket, so yes help should be and is available. But again, that is not a RIGHT it is an individual responsibility. Our help is a PRIVILEGE offered by the most generous nation in the history of the earth. To force US to BUY INSURANCE is a travesty and unconstitutional.

"Time to stop governing by crisis?" I couldn´t agree more, Mr. President. And nice of you to stop by the memorial for those murdered down the street from you at the naval yard. Must not have interfered with your tee time, sir, or with any other partisan speeches you planned to give. (Of course, you can always rip the Republicans over the bodies of a few more dead Americans. No problem with that, right?)

Psychological Projection:

"Projection tends to come to the fore in normal people at times of crisis, personal or political, but is more commonly found in the neurotic or psychotic— in personalities functioning at a primitive level as in narcissistic personality disorder or borderline personality disorder."

The Black Caucus has turned into an black hate group that is called upon whenever Obama needs 12.5% of the American people to cause trouble. I think they called groups like this Brown Shirts in Nazi Germany.

If White people in congress formed a White Caucus, the Democrats would be having snit fits. Besides that, how can you call his hate speech in affairs like this a Gala.

The worst thing about all this, while he is preaching to the choir, is that his audience believes everything that he says.

It goes against human nature to believe that the Republicans will ever cooperate with him to get anything done when he remains so political and keeps advising that he will not negotiate at all.

On the immigration reform bill that is really a long-term very liberal ethnic and immigrant activists wish list, if the Republicans facilitate passage, it will not stop future mass uncontrolled illegal immigration; but definitely will, in the years ahead, hand the Democrats tens of millions of new mostly poor and generally uneducated low wage earning foreign born voters through a special path to citizenship provision. With all those new voters the Democrats would be bound to flip a number of key States into the Democrat column as they did with California, thus win every future national election, and permanently change the balance of political power in the USA towards the extreme left. Any Republican would would support such a bill would have to be an absolute political moron.

Every time someone stands up to him, it causes him to pull open the curtain and expose the mad gangster side of his personality. It also exposes the Democrat machinations to defeat the will of the people. Harry Reid intends to vote for the Continuing Resolution with defunding Obamacare stripped out requiring only 50 votes. If Lee and Cruz want to amend it back in, they will need 60 vote. Harry Reid makes the rules.

Really? Watch the bouncing ball once again. Obama was exactly right when he said, "It´s not going to happen." It´s not. The GOP are cavers. They know no other course. This (Obamacare) and many more things along with all the other past things will continue to happen, to a large part, thanks to "conservatives" like the entire Weekly Standard before the 2008 elections and like Karl Rove for the 2012´s. Of course Obama is projecting the things he does onto his enemies. Marx, Lenin, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, Castro, Chavez all did the exact same thing. Obama will continue to do this for 3 1/2 more years. He is NOT the problem. He´s merely a symptom, a pretty big and bad one but a symptom nonetheless.

Social Security stops trying

Washington Post, by Marc Fisher    Original Article

The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

Despite promises to the contrary, it appears that State Senator Wendy Davis (D-Fort Worth) voted on bills that affect her clients and favorably impact the bottom line of her law firm. “I have never done anything in a way that represents a conflict in my voting and something that would benefit me personally,” she said in an interview, but state records seem to tell a different story. The Dallas Morning News´ Senior Political Writer Wayne Slater (DMN) reported that Davis supported legislation governing a toll road project.

Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

Democrats settle on fairness

On the defensive about their prospects in the midterm elections this fall, congressional Democrats have spent all of April savaging the Republican budget proposal, decrying the Koch brothers and championing a series of bills meant to ingratiate themselves to struggling middle-class voters. In promoting legislation that would extend unemployment benefits, increase the minimum wage and promote equal pay for women, the Democrats have declared themselves the party that will ensure a “fair shot” for all. Republicans, they insist, are the party of special interests. It has been a classic Washington messaging campaign for these partisan

On a trip to Moscow early in her tenure as secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton played the role of international saleswoman, pressing Russian government officials to sign a multibillion-dollar deal to buy dozens of aircraft from Boeing. A month later, Clinton was in China, where she jubilantly announced that the aerospace giant would be writing a generous check to help resuscitate floundering U.S. efforts to host a pavilion at the upcoming World’s Fair. Boeing, she said, “has just agreed to double its contribution to $2 million.” Clinton did not point out that, to secure the donation, the State Department

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin blasted President Barack Obama for nominating as his new Health and Human Services Secretary the same woman who ordered the shutdown of the war memorials during the so-called government shutdown last year. After accepting Kathleen Sebelius´ resignation Friday, Obama nominated Sylvia Burwell, the former Office of Management and Budget director. This is the same person who sent the email initiating the barricading of the memorials, even as veterans were arriving in D.C. on their "honor flights" to see the memorials that they built.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

U.S. blocks Iran’s pick as envoy to
U.N., setting up new confrontation

The Obama administration said Friday that it would block Iran’s nominee as ambassador to the United Nations from entering the United States, setting up a new confrontation with Tehran just as relations with the Islamic republic appeared to be improving. The decision to bar entry to the diplomat, who was allegedly involved in the 1979 seizure of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, followed intense political pressure on the administration from Republicans and Democrats on Capitol Hill. But it also marked a rare instance in which Washington has effectively vetoed another country’s preferred choice as envoy to the United Nations. Iran

Distressed homeowners seeking

Struggling homeowners across the country could face significant new tax bills if they receive mortgage relief from their banks, a prospect that threatens to slow the housing recovery and put further strain on distressed borrowers. The collapse of the housing market and plunging home prices left millions of people stuck owing more on their mortgages than their homes were worth. Some have worked with their banks to reduce the loan amount to avoid foreclosure or enable a sale. In 2007, Congress adopted a law that spared those homeowners from being taxed on the amount of the loan that was forgiven. But

On Thursday, Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius resigned her position. The New York Times reported the resignation as a punishment for failure: Officials said Ms. Sebelius, 65, made the decision to resign and was not forced out. But the frustration at the White House over her performance had become increasingly clear, as administration aides worried that the crippling problems at HealthCare.gov, the website set up to enroll Americans in insurance exchanges, would result in lasting damage to the president’s legacy. So Sebelius stuck around just long enough to reach the mythical 7 million enrollment number

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

The cash infusion by the federal government is actually going to help the city pay pensions, even though they´re playing a kind of shell game with the money. As for "blight removal," perhaps they could start with city hall. Reuters: Michigan officials and President Barack Obama´s Administration are discussing a plan to free up $100 million in federal money to aid Detroit´s retired city workers, the Detroit Free Press reported on Tuesday. Citing two people familiar with the talks, the newspaper said the talks were centered around federal money flowing to Michigan for blight removal. Under the plan, $100 million
