Newburyportnews.com: It seems like every time I turn around, I see another story of obama’s henchmen mistreating people, particularly senior citizens. As if the treatment of our veterans at the memorial in DC wasn’t bad enough, now people on bus tours at Yellowstone have been mistreated. NEWBURYPORT — Pat Vaillancourt went on a trip last week that was intended to showcase some of America’s greatest treasures. Instead, the Salisbury resident said she and others on her tour bus witnessed an ugly spectacle that made her embarrassed, angry and heartbroken for her country.

Hitting Below the Belt

Our government has hit an all time low. From Today.com: Shutdown denies death benefits to families of fallen soldiers   The shutdown of the federal government is now affecting some families when they are most vulnerable, denying them benefits to help with funeral expenses of loved ones killed while serving the country. The families of five U.S. service members who were killed over the weekend in Afghanistan have been notified that they won’t be receiving the $100,000 benefit normally wired to relatives within 36 hours of the death. The “death gratuity” is intended to help cover funeral costs and help … Continue reading

The Eight Biggest Lies

From American Overlook: President Barack Obama is a politician, so according to the old joke, if his lips are moving he’s lying. But Obama’s critics would tell you the president doesn’t just lie, he tells some real whoppers. Culling that list of fibs, falsehoods and outright fabrications can be a difficult task, but let’s give it the old college try. College Speaking of college, what’s the deal with Obama’s transcripts? He hasn’t exactly lied about them, but he hasn’t been forthcoming with them either. We know his predecessor George W. Bush was a C student. But then again, he earned … Continue reading

Behind The Smokescreen

Judson Phillips has a good take on the government shutdown. Tea Party Nation has the story. Pay no attention to the Obama smoke screen   Posted by Judson Phillips on October 6, 2013 at 9:20am in Tea Party Nation Forum The stories about how the Obama Regime and Harry Reid’s shutdown are coming almost faster than we can deal with them. The Regime has closed the World War 2 Memorial. They closed the Iwo Jima Memorial. They closed Mount Rushmore and the scenic overpass that allows people to look at it. They closed privately owned businesses on Federal thoroughfares. Today … Continue reading

Here Comes the Money Part

From Emily Hulsey at IJ Review: Now he’s dictating to the stock market!   Obama’s Remarks About Shutdown That Spooked Wall Street on Thursday  Many people, including myself, were pleasantly surprised that stocks remained stable during the first two days of this week’s government shutdown. Of course, it didn’t last long. Stocks plummeted Thursday after President Obama remarked that Wall Street should be worried about the government shutdown and the debt limit: When asked during a CNBC interview if markets were right to remain relatively calm during the debt limit, the president said, “No.” “I think this time’s different. I think … Continue reading

Obama is Killing America’s Superpower Status

From Con Coughlin at Telegraph.co.uk: US government shutdown: Barack Obama is presiding over the end of America’s superpower status For a country that is supposed to be the most powerful in the world, the fact that Americans have today woken up to find large swathes of their nation closed for business is humiliating. Thanks to President Barack Obama obduracy over his flagship healthcare policy, Democrats and Republicans have failed to reach agreement in Congress on the federal budget, forcing the US Government to close down for the first time in 17 years, with around 700,000 federal workers being placed on indefinite leave. … Continue reading

God Bless Our Veterans!

From WND: Obama behind ‘barrycades’ at WWII monument The Obama administration has decided to block access to public memorials on the National Mall as a result of the government shutdown. The decision is similar to the cancellation of White House tours when the sequester cuts took effect. On Monday, the first day of the government shutdown, a number of veterans showed up at the World War II memorial to find access blocked by barricades, despite the fact the memorial is a public space open at all times with very little oversight from the Park Police. Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev., issued a statement blaming … Continue reading

What’s Shut Down, What’s Not

From the AP & Yahoo News: In this time of argument and political gridlock, a blueprint to manage federal dysfunction is one function that appears to have gone smoothly.

The longer a shutdown goes on, the more it will be felt in day-to-day lives and in the economy as a whole. A look at what is bound to happen, and what probably won’t: ___ THIS: Washington’s paralysis will be felt early on in distant lands as well as in the … Continue reading

Thought For Today – Oct. 1, 2013

  If the Shut Down only effects “Non Essential Government Functions” and the government can run without these “Non Essential Functions” what the hell are we doing paying for governmental functions that are not essential to the operation???????  (quote by Buck) Kudos bro. ~ Hardnox

Ted Cruz on Meet The Press

From Human Events by John Hayward: Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) appeared on NBC’s “Meet the Press” this weekend, where he was subjected to the sort of confrontational needling by host David Gregory that no Democrat will ever have to face on anything.  Good thing, too, because if “journalists” ever treated someone like Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid or President Barack Obama the way Gregory attacked Cruz, they’d have a nervous breakdown. Cruz did not have a nervous breakdown.  He handled the assault from this “impartial journalist” with aplomb, which must have driven liberal viewers nuts.  I notice all the lefty … Continue reading

Feds Find $100M to give Detroit

Last week Nancy Pelosi told CNN “The cupboard is bare – there’s no more cuts to make.” Despite a bare cupboard, sequesters and the possibility of shutting down the government, they managed to scrape up $100M in grants to help out the largest bankruptcy ever.

Gene Sperling, chief economic adviser to President Obama, told the Associated Press the administration scrounged through the federal budget and found untapped money that “either had … Continue reading

The Death Of The Middle Class

44 Facts About The Death Of The Middle Class That Every American Should Know By Michael Snyder, on July 30th, 2013 What is America going to look like when the middle class is dead? Once upon a time, the United States has the largest and most vibrant middle class in the history of the world.  When I was growing up, it seemed like almost everyone was “middle class” and it was very rare to hear of someone that was out of work.  Of course life wasn’t perfect, but most families owned a home, most families had more than one vehicle, … Continue reading

A Lesson In Abject Stupidity

“Raising the debt ceiling doesn’t increase the nation’s debt”, Pres. Obama declared in a speech on Thursday.   From CNS News: In a speech at the Business Roundtable headquarters in Washington, D.C., Obama dismissed concerns about raising the debt ceiling by noting that it’d been done so many times in the past: “Now, this debt ceiling — I just want to remind people in case you haven’t been keeping up — raising the debt ceiling, which has been done over a hundred times, does not increase our debt; it does not somehow promote profligacy.  All it does is it says you got to … Continue reading

His & Hers ObamaScare Ads

Lt. Gen. W.G. Boykin Warns of Engineered Economic Collapse, Martial Law, Dictatorship

In this video entitled “Marxism in America” General Jerry Boykin discusses his background and training in understanding Marxist insurgencies and how current government actions parallel Marxist tactics. (hat-tip new subscriber: Tom Schuckman) Boykin’s words are spot on but it would be nice if our asshat elected officials actually listened to us.  The blizzards of emails, telephone calls, letters, and faxes result in little if anything. Now after the latest mass shooting at the Navy yard in DC, Zero has pledged more Executive Orders regarding gun control. At the same time he has pledged more support for the Syrian rebels (Al-Qaeda) … Continue reading
