Obama’s Most Audacious

American Spectator, by David Catron

Original Article

Posted By:garnet, 2/13/2013 7:00:08 AM

It is difficult to say with certainly which of the many whoppers President Obama told tonight was took the most crust to utter, but my money is going on this assertion, made a few minutes into the speech: “Already, the Affordable Care Act is helping to slow the growth of health care costs.” I know “Orwellian” has now become rather hackneyed, but there is simply no other adjective that better describes this statement. It is not merely a lie. It is the precise opposite of the truth. It is just as absurd as “war is peace” or “freedom is slavery.”

You´d need a vocal chord transplant if you hollered "YOU LIE" after all the Obama assertions. All obamcare has done so far is waste billions on the bureaucratic set ups i greedy blue states. Money that could have been used to give low income people a vouchers to buy private insurance or set them up with a MSA.

But the fearful [destroys opposition], and unbelieving [does not cling to the Bible], and the abominable [partial birth abortion], and murderers [Benghazi], and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters [black liberation theology] and all liars [almost every speech], shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone:

with a >50% approval, does our nation deserve anything less than judgement?

My democrat friends are just coming to realize that they too are going to get the Obamacare shaft. I take very little pleasure in saying to them "I told you so!". Well, maybe just a little since I´ve been telling them for 4 years what it means when government takes over an industry.

And why is anyone surprised? Lying is what he does. It´s what all pro-regressives do. We bad, they good. Social justice for all (but us - and they will decide that).

It was too soon after the election for me to watch this lie-fest accompanied by the usual exaggerated cheering section by the idiots on the left. I tried the ´This man is lying´ note taped to the screen, sound muted, CC on, but I couldn´t do even that. Monday night´s DVR´d The Following was much more fun.

His speeches are always all the same - lies, big promises, progressive wet dreams. Until he´s gone. And the untangling can begin. Everything about this administration, the past 4 years, the next 4 years, everyone involved..... it´s ALL Orwellian.

Counting Fauxbama´s lies would be like cleansing the Augean stables with a toothbrush. Regardless of the lies, the sheeple will applaud because they don´t care what he says; they only care whether or not it sounds plausible and gives them something for free.

Axiom: If you believe the exact opposite of what Obama says you will be correct 95% of the time. The other 5% is for utterances like "Good Morning" and "Sit Down". In those cases he is sometimes sincere.

Assume that Obama actually believes what he says. That would make it much harder to call him "brilliant."

Many of us now see him as a human version of junk mail.

I found myself screening at the set when he the poor voters who had passed up early voting, absentee voting, and vote by mail, only to suffer long lines. And Obama would fix that. But absentee ballots are always mailed late by many states, mishandled by the military, in some cases lost in air crashes, and nary a word about their being disenfranchised by his administration. He values the military but cuts their health coverage, pensions, and absolutely tries to ensure their votes don´t count.

I must be honest and admit I could not suffer through one word that came out of Obama´s mouth last night. I am barely able to read articles about it without developing a severe eye twitch. I knew that haughty lies would tumble from his lips to cheering sycophants drunk on progressive power. I couldn´t take the media tongue bath either. So here I sit this morning more frightened than I have ever been in my life for the country I love. Each of you should be very fearful too since Obama has gotten away with every egregious act that would take down any other President. The perfect storm has hit, a radical President, a media who worships him, and a weak and fractured opposition. God help is. This man truly means to so weaken this nation both financially and militarily that we will be easy pickings for our enemies.

So glad to see Mr. Catron mentioned Dietrich Bonhoeffer in this quote: Unlike today’s progressive poseurs, he spoke truth to power when it cost something. While sitting in a cell, awaiting death for that crime....

However, Bonhoeffer was not in prison because "he spoke truth to power". Bonhoeffer, along with many German military officers and other German leaders of the day, were imprisoned because they had attempted to kill Hitler in a plan called "Operation Valkyrie".

We should be reminded how gruesomely these "conspirators" were executed. They were hanged with piano wire on meat hooks. Their hanging was filmed in order to show the military command what awaits them if they try something like that again.

None-the-less, the rest of Catron´s Bonhoeffer quote is just as relevant now as during WWII: “For evil to appear disguised as light, charity, historical necessity, or social justice is quite bewildering to anyone brought up on our traditional ethical concepts.”

While the situation in our country certainly doesn´t come close to Nazi Germany, but like
Catron says: No, I’m not comparing Obama to Hitler. But I am saying that the never-ending stream of prevarication that emanates from the White House and its media toadies is indeed bewildering to anyone who tries to live honestly. And most of the propaganda is specifically designed to camouflage crimes against democracy like Obamacare.

When 0bama said the Affordable Healthcare act was lowering healthcare costs, I tuned him out. My insurance has gone up 300% in the last three years. You can see most companies are going to opt out of insurance and send their employees packing to 0bama´s "Exchanges" which is what 0bama´s grand plan was in the first place. Put all the people in a single payer system, however, you must remember that he and his family will be covered by a gold plated health insurance and not have to suffer the long lines and shortages for healthcare. Wake up America.

Forget the price of healthcare...has anyone seen the prices of everything else? Food is 3-5 times more expensive than it was a couple years ago. Gasoline is over 2x more expensive. The cost of living is skyrocketing while jobs are almost non-existent, nobody (except the fat cats and the elite government types) is getting raises nor have they been for years. I feel like it is the Weimar Republic again with hyperinflation. Why aren´t the people who are dependent on government benes crying about not being able to buy as much? I know they haven´t had many (if any) increases in their "income". Even they should be screaming about the state of our union.

What I don´t understand are those idiots you see who post on a lot of articles who say that the economy is getting better and that we are all better off under Obama. These idiots who think that everything is wonderful now and that anything that goes against their belief system is evil. if you ask me, they are the evil ones.

Snitchgate -- Sharpton Is Still Lying
Townhall, by Larry Elder    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 4/18/2014 9:10:04 AM     Post Reply
If the Rev. Al Sharpton, the bigoted, anti-Semitic, non-tax paying race-hustling poverty pimp, had any credibility left, it just vanished. The beneficiary of a lifetime of passes from our race-conscious mainscream media, Sharpton ran into an outlet not afraid of him -- The Smoking Gun. They obtained material that exposed Sharpton as an FBI "informant." Sharpton, of course, denies that this constitutes "snitching." No, he says he "volunteered" to "cooperate" with the FBI -- and for the most honorable of motives. Why would the government-hating "civil rights" leader cooperate with the feds?

The Republican Party is roiling with internal conflicts, say the analysts. The tea party is confronting the establishment. The noninterventionists are at war (forgive the expression) with the interventionists. The libertarians would like the party to endorse same-sex marriage. Fair enough. These conflicts will play out during the primaries in 2016, and we´ll discover whether they are serious fault lines or merely squabbles. Meanwhile, the Democratic Party, supposedly the firm fortress of the middle class, minorities and women, is actually showing some internal stresses as well. Little fissures are snaking through the crust, perhaps reflecting tectonic movement beneath. The president´s approval rating has

No need for a rush
to judgment on Obamacare
Los Angeles Times, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 4/17/2014 9:28:37 AM     Post Reply
The first open enrollment period under the Affordable Care Act ended this week with roughly 7.5 million people obtaining policies through the new state insurance exchanges, including more than 1.3 million at Covered California. That´s an amazing and welcome result, considering how badly many of the exchanges stumbled when sign-ups began in October. Nevertheless, it´s far too early to judge the success or failure of the healthcare law, given that key tests of the program´s sustainability have yet to be passed. Almost all of the exchanges got off to a wretched start, particularly the federally managed ones that shared a mind-bogglingly

Obamacare Is On a

Obamacare hasn´t "won"—but it´s making a pretty impressive run. The headlines about the Affordable Care Act have turned positive lately, and they´re starting to pile up. The most dire predictions from the law´s critics simply haven´t panned out, and now Democrats are headed into another big health care fight—the confirmation of a new Health and Human Services secretary—with stronger real-world evidence than they´ve had before. There´s important information we still don´t have about enrollment, and big risks loom on the horizon. Things could change. But right now, the tide seems to be turning in the White House´s favor. Narratives feed on themselves, and

War on women alert: One of the most forceful fighters against misogyny in the modern era is under attack. Somali-born Ayaan Hirsi Ali has been a vocal critic of women´s oppression under Islamic law. She´s blasted arranged marriage, legally sanctioned domestic violence, genital mutilation, and the killing of adulteresses and rape victims. Despite being a supporter of abortion rights, an atheist, and an advocate of gay and women´s rights, she is despised by many who claim to be defenders of women´s rights. Over the years, they have worked to delegitimize her in the hopes that she will be silenced.

Well, it´s Easter time, and that means that the mainstream media and publishing houses can be counted upon to issue de-bunking attacks on orthodox Christianity. The best-publicized of these is Bart Ehrman´s How Jesus Became God. Many by now know at least the outlines of Ehrman´s biography: once a devout Bible-believing evangelical Christian, trained at Wheaton College, the alma mater of Billy Graham, he saw the light and became an agnostic scholar and is now on a mission to undermine the fundamental assumptions of Christianity.In this most recent tome, Ehrman lays out what is actually a very old thesis, going back

It was disappointing the other day to see President Barack Obama embracing the vulgar race hustler Al Sharpton. President Obama once eloquently confronted race in a memorable speech in Philadelphia in 2008. That speech was remarkable and honest and, to borrow a favorite word of the political left that still fawns over him, it was nuanced. But there was nothing particularly remarkable about Obama standing next to the preening Sharpton, speaking in New York to his National Action Network. Except that Obama expertly used a message of victimization to begin energizing black voters, who provide the electoral foundation for the Democratic Party.

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'

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
