You didn´t really think Obama´s Chicago
crowd would stop fundraising, did you?

Investor´s Business Daily, by Andrew Malcolm

Now that Barack Obama has finished his last election campaign, he´s back fundraising again. Yup. And he´d like at least $5 from you right away. These electronic Obama fundraising missives are always about money, even after an historic record number of fundraisers throughout 2011 and 2012 and the incumbent´s estimated $1 billion, second winning presidential campaign, which saw him actually reap millions fewer votes than the first one. The messages are usually filled with ominous talk of fights and struggles against unnamed, but evil special interests.

You suppose he thinks he may need them to fight a future Impeachment battle?

This bozo is Chicago politics personified on a national scale - corrupt beyond measurement.

Even from his vacation, Obama asks
fading fans for more money
Investor´s Business Daily, by Andrew Malcolm    Original Article

Barack Obama was supposed to be on vacation in Hawaii all this week. The White House media pool had him golfing again with old Choom Gang buddies, while his family as usual did something elsewhere. Somehow, through the electronic magic of OFA, Obama´s political arm, he also contacted millions of supporters in a year-end email. The tease was straight-faced praise for ObamaCare as the kind of "fundamental change" America badly needs. Obama declared his insurance scheme can´t be undone. Then, the vacationing Democrat asked working supporters back home to commit to him in 2014--and please donate at least $15.

11 tough questions Obama

First the good news from President Obama´s final news conference of 2013: "I´ve run my last political race." Of course, Obama made no new news. If he´d wanted to make news, he would not have scheduled it on short notice and on a Friday, when politicians release news they want ignored. Obama has broken so many promises, claimed ignorance of so many of his responsibilities and underlings´ failures and violated protocols, not to mention the Constitution. [Snip] In the interests of accountability, we’ve drafted a few pressing unasked questions that Obama would have tried to dodge.

Good morning from Eureka College in Eureka, Illinois — the proud alma mater of Ronald Reagan. On campuses like this, young people are just beginning to make choices that will shape their future. Right now — even in the middle of finals week — they’re being told that to make the future better, they should rush out and get covered under the president’s health care law. Not only that, they’re being told to “spread the word” about what a great deal it is.

Hi, everybody. This week, Congress finished up some important work before heading home for the holidays. For the first time in years, both parties came together in the spirit of compromise to pass a budget — one that helps chart our economic course for the next two years. This budget will unwind some of the damaging cuts that have threatened students and seniors and held back our businesses. It clears the path for critical investments in the things that grow our economy and strengthen our middle class.

Where the U.S. saw rosy democratic

Yet another hectic day planned for the Obama-Biden administration. [Snip] A new Gallup Poll is about fallout from the collapse of the creaky old Soviet Union, the long-time superpower rival. Pushed by the aggressive "We Win, You Lose" policies of President Reagan, the aging Communist monolith flew apart 22 years ago next week. The Soviet breakup was seen as a grand strategic victory for the U.S. and for the global spread of democracy to unleash prosperity for those populations. So, you might be surprised to learn this survey finds the populations of 11 liberated lands very disappointed.

I’m Pennsylvania Senator Pat Toomey. These days, lots of Americans think Members of Congress are out of touch, and you know, at times there’s some truth to that. But there’s at least one instance in which many Members of Congress are feeling the very same pain that the rest of America is feeling. And that’s with this new health care law. Now, I don’t think anyone should be forced onto ObamaCare. But as a Senator, ObamaCare forced me and my family onto an exchange for health coverage. Just last week, my wife, Kris, tried to sign up on the health exchange website that’s available to us. Now, my wife is a very sharp woman,

One year ago today, a quiet, peaceful town was shattered by unspeakable violence. Six dedicated school workers and 20 beautiful children were taken from our lives forever. As parents, as Americans, the news filled us with grief. Newtown is a town like so many of our hometowns. The victims were educators and kids that could have been any of our own. And our hearts were broken for the families that lost a piece of their heart; for the communities changed forever; for the survivors, so young, whose innocence was torn away far too soon. But beneath the sadness, we also felt a sense of resolve — that these tragedies must end,

You may remember earlier this year that President Obama, in a fit of pique over Congress actually allowing his sequester cuts idea to take effect, had White House public tours canceled to save lunch money. During the later partial government shutdown, he ordered national monuments "closed," even though most are open-air. Now, comes holiday season in the Obama White House. Although the family travels at Christmas, they go all out for decorations.

Most days here we´re talking about relatively serious stuff -- politics, political maneuvering, political tactics, political speeches, political gaffes, political scandals. Oh, and politicians. Like the Chicagoan currently inhabiting the White House with his mother-in-law while teaching America about his adopted hometown´s chronic style of political ops. We´re all sorry about that. Anyway, today we´re doing something completely different. It's Sunday, which means the National Football League. And it's December, which means the playoffs are shaping up. We're not writing about the games though. We're writing about the show biz side

Merry Christmas, everyone, and hello, my name is Renee Ellmers, and I represent North Carolina’s Second Congressional District. Like many of you, I’m frustrated with the president’s health care law, especially where jobs and working families are concerned. I say this not only as a congresswoman and chair of the Republican Women’s Policy Committee; I say it as a nurse and the mother of a son in college. After all, it’s often women who make the health care decisions for our families. We put a lot of time and thought into these choices and how they’ll affect our budgets. So by canceling your insurance — despite a promise

The holiday season is a time for remembering the bonds we share, and our obligations to one another as human beings. But right now, more than one million of our fellow Americans are poised to lose a vital economic lifeline just a few days after Christmas if Congress doesn’t do something about it. Our top priority as a country should be restoring opportunity and broad-based economic growth for all Americans. And yesterday, we learned that our businesses created about 200,000 jobs in the month of November. That’s more than 8 million new jobs in the last 45 months. And the unemployment rate fell to its lowest level in five

The Department of Justice reports that homosexuals are more likely (15.4% of them) than heterosexual men (10.8%) to be physically attacked by a domestic partner. But the DOJ also found that 39% of cohabiting lesbians say they have been raped, attacked, or stalked by a lover, as opposed to 21.7% of heterosexuals who live with men. This means a lesbian is about twice as likely as a hetero woman to be stalked or slapped around by a live-in lover. A hugely disproportionate number of male serial killers have been homosexual; figures run from 40 to 60% depending on definitions. Some

It was the 2013 Politifact "Lie of the Year," our president´s now infamous line: "If you like your health care plan, you can keep it." Now all Americans are realizing what Catholics have known from the beginning: President Barack Obama is a master of deception. Lest people forget, passage of the Affordable Care Act happened in part because Obama struck a deal with a single Catholic holdout: Bart Stupak, D-Michigan. Stupak agreed to vote for the bill in exchange for an executive order protecting conscience rights and preserving the Hyde Amendment´s ban on the use of federal funds for abortion.

A professor who teaches constitutional law courses at the City University of New York’s John Jay College of Criminal Justice penned a Christmas Day essay blaming “southern White radicals” for the disastrous, slow-motion train wreck failure that has been the rollout of the Affordable Care Act. The essay, by Gloria J. Browne-Marshall at the website Politics in Color, is entitled “2013: A Year of Racial Challenges.” “[S]outhern White radicals vowed to stop implementation of the Obama-care law leading one to wonder if Tea Party members would oppose affordable healthcare if it came from a nonBlack [sic] President,”

The establishment GOP in Washington hates the Tea Party and the conservative wing of the party more than they do the Democrats. They will make very clear that instead of riding a conservative wave to a landslide victory in the 2014 midterms, they will do everything in their power to sabotage conservative and Tea Party candidates for their own personal benefit. Many establishment groups have been vocal about their strategy to attack principled conservatives.

Colorado will make history Wednesday as the first American state allowing stores to sell marijuana for recreational use – eliciting fear and predictions of doom from anti-drug campaigners. On a Tuesday conference call hosted by Smart Approaches to Marijuana, former Rep. Patrick Kennedy, D-R.I., said Colorado and Washington state – where stores will open later in 2014 – are "canaries in the coal mine." "There are a lot of ´unintended consequences´... that will make them ponder whether this was the right decision," Kennedy said, predicting more traffic accidents, increased school truancy, higher drop-out rates and a general decrease in public health.

(Video) It may have been the least productive year for Congress in history, at least in terms of passing laws – fewer than 60 of which made it through the House and Senate and were signed by President Barack Obama. Across the country, however, state lawmakers were busy getting more than 40,000 bills passed, ones that tackle everything from drones to food stamp benefits. In Illinois for example, teenagers will no longer get to use tanning beds without a doctor´s note. If you live in Delaware, visit the shark fin buffet while you can, a new law will make it illegal to own, sale, or distribute the controversial delicacy.

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie signed landmark legislation at the end of December which allowed the state’s undocumented high school students access to in-state tuition at all public colleges and universities. Under the new legislation, students who graduated from a New Jersey high school where they had been in attendance for at least three years are eligible to receive in-state and in-county rates at state colleges, universities, and community college campuses. “This is what compromise looks like,” the governor said of the bill, deemed the state’s “Dream Act.” Christie signed the original bill with a conditional veto,

An air rescue for the passengers aboard a research ship that has been trapped in Antarctic ice for a week will wait for a break in the weather to start airlifting people from the vessel, Australian maritime authorities say. The 74 scientists, tourists and crew aboard the Akademik Shokalskiy, a Russian-crewed research vessel touring the Antarctic, have been trapped in ice since Christmas Eve. A helicopter on board a Chinese icebreaker, the Snow Dragon, will be used to collect the passengers once there is a break in the weather, the Australian Maritime Safety Authority said in a Monday night conference

Chicken has officially overtaken beef as the most popular meat product being consumed in the U.S. and the trend looks likely to continue in 2014. While the per capita consumption of beef has dropped from a peak of 90lbs per capita in the 1970s to 50 lbs in 2012, chicken consumption has gone the other way rising from under 20 lbs in 1960 to about 55 lbs in 2012. Americans now eat less beef then we did in 1955, but is the change a result of a healthier diet or because people are choosing the cheaper option? The answer is

Smarting from the number of witnesses who came out to challenge The New York Times´ weekend article downplaying terrorist involvement in the 2012 Benghazi attack, NYT editorial page editor Andrew Rosenthal "argued that those trying to claim Al Qaeda was involved" do so "for strictly political reasons." According to Fox News, Rosenthal said: For anyone wondering why it´s so important to Republicans that Al Qaeda orchestrated the attack--or how the Obama administration described the attack in its immediate aftermath--the answer is simple. The Republicans hope to tarnish Democrat candidates by making it seem as though Mr. Obama doesn´t take Al Qaeda seriously. Rosenthal

To put it bluntly: nobody knows nothin’ about the president of the United States, aka the leader of the free world. (Snip) Has there been a modern presidential candidate about whom we know less than the former Barry Soetoro? Other than what he’s told us about himself in Dreams from My Father — a book proven even by sympathetic biographers to be filled with fabrications (“a man one step removed from his own life,” according to David Maraniss)?
