A Survey of the Damage

From Dennis Prager via the National Review: The President Who Has Done the Most Damage The only question is whether it can ever be undone. I have been broadcasting for 31 years and writing for longer than that. I do not recall ever saying on radio or in print that a president is doing lasting damage to our country. I did not like the presidencies of Jimmy Carter (the last Democrat I voted for) or Bill Clinton. Nor did I care for the “compassionate conservatism” of George W. Bush. In modern political parlance “compassionate” is a euphemism for ever-expanding government. … Continue reading

Insanity: DHS Quietly Considering Lifting Ban On Libyans Training In US

  To what level does this administration max out it’s idiot quota? I submit that the level is infinite.   Troglodytes on display From Fox News: The Department of Homeland Security is quietly considering lifting a long-standing ban on Libyans coming to the U.S. for training in the aviation and nuclear fields, according to an internal document, raising red flags for lawmakers who say Libya is still a security threat. “Now, more than ever, we have concerns about terrorist activity in that country,” Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, told FoxNews.com. “Now the administration wants to normalize — that’s just not acceptable.” Chaffetz … Continue reading

The Things You Find Out Later.

Back during the takeover of General Motors by the feral government, we were told the government had NO interest in “running the company”. Seems as if that may not be entirely true. Words from a man I’ve had occasion to speak with a few times, always impressed me as a straight shooter. You read, and decide. From Jalopnik.com via Drudge.   Feds Told GM To Drop Pontiac Or No Bailout, Ex-GM Exec Says. From this, to…… … this, and this…..   …to CLOSED. Great plan, eh?       Closed down via government edict.

ObamaScare Just A Warm Up

The recent media attacks upon the disastrous rollout of ObongoCare appear to contradict the policy of protecting and glorifying Obongo at all costs. But there is a reason for the bizarre failure of the HealthCare.gov website, the insurance companies being forced to drop customers, and the high costs and deductibles of the ‘Health Exchange” programs. This first stage of ObongoCare, which partners up health care insurers with the Federal Government and its heavy regulations, was intended to fail, on purpose. In a September 10, Los Angeles Times piece, liberal columnist Michael Hilzick “lets the cat out of the bag” a … Continue reading

Doctors In Congress Aren’t Happy

Ask a physician about obamacare, and be ready for either complete silence, or a castigation of unprecedented severity. What do Doctors in Congress think? America Conservative 2 Conservative has the story.

DHS Preparing For Riots on November 1

Apparently there will be a decrease in the dollar amount allocated to food stamp recipients.  DHS is spending $80 million to beef up security. Who didn’t know this wasn’t coming someday?  It might as well be manufactured. The recent interruption in the EBT program was proof of that coming down the pike. Powder is dry. ~ Hardnox

Beckel: ‘White House Called Me After I Criticized ObamaCare

Democratic hack and FOX News contributor Bob Beckel told Bill Hemmer today that he got a call from the White House after he suggested implementation for ObamaCare should be delayed 6 months. “The other day on The Five I called for a delay for the implementation of this for five months or six months to a year. And I got a call from somebody at the White House who absolutely bludgeoned me over it…“ Should we be surprised that Beckel, or anyone else for that matter, gets a call from the White House? This is S.O.P. from this administration.  Beckel … Continue reading

Thought For Today – Oct. 23 ,2013

* In 59 voting districts in the Philadelphia region, Obama received 100% of the votes with not even a single vote recorded for Romney. A mathematical and statistical impossibility. * In 21 districts in Wood County Ohio , Obama received 100% of the votes where GOP inspectors were illegally removed from their polling locations — and not one single vote was recorded for Romney. Another statistical impossibility. * In Wood County Ohio , 106,258 voted in a county with only 98,213 eligible voters. * In St. Lucie County Florida , there were 175,574 registered eligible voters but 247,713 votes were … Continue reading

I am officially revoking my respect for John McCain’s service to our country

From Joe the Plumber’s (Joe Wurzelbacher) website: Whenever a politician from either side of the aisle, a member of the media, or anyone speaking on any topic involving you, your opinion, or your vote in the matter talks about the subject – they must first run the “McCain Disclaimer;” praising your service to this country. Lest anyone be seen as insensitive or ungrateful after 40 years of hearing anything you say or do premised with how much you have given – Mr. McCain, let me now say what every conservative has been thinking for a long, long time: Let me tell … Continue reading

Violations of the Constitution – The First Amendment

  Our Founders created the Constitution and the Bill of Rights to guarantee the American people certain freedoms, liberties and rights. Over the years, those rights have been trampled, manipulated and at times, grossly misinterpreted. This series will focus on the first ten amendments and present examples of just how many of our rights have virtually been lost, or upheld, as the odd case may be. The First Amendment Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people … Continue reading

Beyond The Level of Incompetence

. Some things, though rare, are so glaringly poorly done as to rate their own acronym for incompetence. Wall Street Journal has an awesome editorial on just this kind of situation. ObamaCare’s Black Box   Why the exchanges are worse than even the critics imagined. Updated Oct. 17, 2013 8:59 p.m. ET The White House set low expectations for the Affordable Care Act’s October 1 debut, so anything remotely competent should have seemed like a success. But three weeks on, the catastrophe that is Healthcare.gov and the 36 insurance exchanges run by the federal government is an insult to the … Continue reading

Disturbing Statements

A couple of statements are bugging me from the latest news loop. Artful Carney pledges, they are working to “improve the consumer experience.” And, Obama lectures about “changing the way business is done in Washington”. Now that first slaps me in the face – “consumer”. Obama’s been hypocritically saying the second but ObamaCare puts it in different light. That’s like another kick in the groin. “Consumer experience” in the context of government is a scary thought. We are in an absurd reality. I wonder if his changing the way “business is done” in Washington includes the scandal in the IRS? “What’s yours?” … Continue reading
