President Obama on Monday evening called congressional leaders to urge them to pass a funding bill to avoid a government shutdown at midnight. “This evening, the President placed separate calls to Senate Majority Leader Reid, Senate Minority Leader McConnell, Speaker Boehner and Democratic Leader Pelosi,” according to a readout provided by the White House. “The President made clear that Congress has two jobs to do: pay the bills on time and pass a budget on time. Failure to fulfill those responsibilities is harmful to our economy, small businesses and middle class families across the country,” the White House added.
So this presidential fraud community organizer lectures Representatives about their constitutional duties and paying the country´s bills, yet he ignores the Constitution whenever he wants, is a serial liar, and is methodically and intentionally destroying our economy. What a phony SO*!
You guys forget. This is all about Obama, the legacy. Who cares about the people? This is about our president and his legacy. You know, the guy with black skin that is a white guy on the inside.
Legacy, legacy, legacy. Agree to his terms and then he will negotiate. Here is a man who is absolutely incapable of negotiating.
He should have turned the negotiation over to goof ball VP Biden. Biden would have struck a deal with Boehner.
Oh, sorry. Obama did not want a deal. It would have tarnished his legacy - the PPandACA. One thing is for sure, the United States will never forget Barack Obama. Assuming he steps down when his term is up.
Businessman and political newcomer Republican Vance McAllister, who was endorsed by Duck Dynasty´s Willie Robertson, won a Louisiana special election for Congress on Saturday. McAllister defeated Republican state Senator Neil Riser 60% to 40% to represent Louisiana´s fifth Congressional District. In the October 15 open primary, Riser got 32% of the vote while McAllister got 18%. "I´m so humbled. So humbled. This is such a great monumental win—victory," McAllister said Saturday night. "(This race) was never about why not to vote for Neil Riser. It was about why to vote for Vance McAllister." The election was held after Rep. Rodney
What will matter most about Ted Turner´s life story when they roll the final credits? That he started the first 24-hour news network? Built a fortune once worth $10 billion? Was Time magazine´s "Man of the Year"? Received a star on Hollywood´s Walk of Fame? Made The New York Times best-seller list? Maybe it was that time he raced a sailboat faster than anyone else. Or the year his baseball team won the World Series. Impressed yet? Did you know he had a president for a fishing buddy and won the heart of a movie star? Turner turns 75 on November
More evidence that American public education is systematically dumbing down the American people. From Breitbart´s Jon David Kahn: Parents are generally proud when their child makes the honor roll, but Beth Tillack, the mother of one such student at Pasco Middle School, is anything but beaming. When examining her son´s report card, Tillack read hand written comments from his teacher - including "good job," a smiley face and a note saying her son had made the honor roll. The only problem was, her son received a "C" and "D" among the grades. Mrs. Tillack, who actually cares about her son
When in trouble, presidents have ways to escape the hubbub, deflect attention from what’s causing the problem, and wait for the whole thing to pass. In 1974, as Watergate was engulfing his presidency, President Nixon traveled to Egypt. A million people lined the roads to see him. Nixon aides quipped that “a million Egyptians can’t be wrong.” But they were wrong, and Nixon resigned a few weeks later. (Snip)In the firestorm over Obamacare, President Obama has few of these tools of evasion at his disposal. His ability to change the subject from his embattled health insurance plan is limited.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has entered the final, mortifying stage of denial where one flails feebly about in the desperate search for an argument that might generate some traction. The spectacular collapse of Democratic standing in public opinion polls has prompted Democrats to voluntarily chip away at the very financial foundation of the Affordable Care Act – a prospect that any pundit would have deemed unthinkable just three weeks ago. Democrats are terrified, but Pelosi, an old pro, never wants to let them see her sweat. To that end, during a press conference with her fellow Democratic leaders
Growing boys need their naps, no matter if they´re human or canine. When Jessica Shyba and her husband got their three small children a dog this month, they decided to crate train the 7-week-old mixed breed. But after the first night of whining, Mrs Shyba decided she couldn´t bear to let the puppy named Theo sleep alone again. And that applies to nap time as well. Every day after her son Beau is put down for his afternoon nap, his ´puppy brother´ jumps up on the bed to cuddle up and catch a few z´s as well. Mrs Shyba recently
Simi Valley, Calif. — The U.S. military is preparing to conduct military and special operations training for Libya’s military and the training will risk including Islamist terrorists among the trainees, according to the commander of the U.S. Special Operations Command. Adm. William McRaven, the commander who helped lead the covert raid to kill al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, said in a brief interview Saturday that the counterterrorism training operation has not begun. “We’re in the early stages,” he told the Free Beacon. McRaven said a major gun battle erupted in Tripoli last week among opposing militias, a sign of
U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan told a group of state schools superintendents Friday that he found it “fascinating” that some of the opposition to the Common Core State Standards has come from “white suburban moms who — all of a sudden — their child isn’t as brilliant as they thought they were and their school isn’t quite as good as they thought they were.” Yes, he really said that. But he has said similar things before. What, exactly, is he talking about? In his cheerleading for the controversial Common Core State Standards — which were approved by 45 states and the
CONCORD, N.H. — The awards ceremony on Friday evening for New Hampshire’s police forces was full of pomp (a bagpipe band in full Scottish regalia), circumstance (tales of heroism and tragedy told to standing ovations), officers in dress uniforms and a show of support from the state’s full congressional delegation. But almost as soon as all the awards had been given and the photos taken, New Hampshire’s four members of Congress, three of them Democrats, were set upon by local reporters with one simmering question: What are you going to do about the faltering Affordable Care Act? Representative Ann McLane
On November 15th, Breitbart News was honored to speak with Helen Patton, granddaughter of General George S. Patton, Jr. Our conversation began with a reference George C. Scott´s portrayal of the general in the movie Patton. For many people, that movie represents their greatest exposure to General Patton. Because of this, we asked Helen how well Scott captured her grandpa--specifically when he mustered his troops and told them what he expected of them. She said, "My aunt, who knew my grandfather probably better than anyone, said, ´He didn´t look like my father, he didn´t act like my father, but he
In Wednesday´s Nova special on the JFK assassination, private investigator Josiah Thompson is an avuncular presence, repeatedly explaining what happened on Nov. 22, 50 years ago in Dallas. But yesterday the author of Six Seconds in Dallas said he was “outraged,” calling the program “rigged.” He wasn’t accusing “Cold Case: JFK” of faking or staging any tests, but said the program failed to fully examine acoustic evidence that suggests four shots were fired that day, because doing so might have derailed the show’s conclusion, that Lee Harvey Oswald was probably the only gunman. "It was very reminiscent of what CBS
Ted Turner turned to a surprising confidant to share the news that he wanted to ask Jane Fonda out on a date: former President Jimmy Carter. Calling the CNN and Turner Broadcasting founder one of his “best friends,” the ex-commander in chief reveals in the documentary, “Ted Turner: The Maverick Man”: “He and I were both fishing for bass. And he told me he had just heard Jane Fonda was going to get a divorce from her husband, and he was going to ask her for a date.”(Snip)The special, reported by Wolf Blitzer, premieres Sunday on CNN.
Is the president’s Obamacare “fix” part of the Obama administration’s pattern of deceit or a product of its frequent delusion?A cursory discussion with almost anyone who knows anything about the insurance business would have alerted the president to the fact that his proposal is unworkable. The initial take from experts on both the right and the left is that the president did not fix anything yesterday. Insurance industry experts agree that the very idea that canceled health policies can be renewed or extended for one year is laughable
In a recent interview with BBC News, Oprah Winfrey said that President Obama is disrespected because he is an African-American. "There’s a level of disrespect for the office that occurs. And that occurs in some cases and maybe even many cases because he’s African-American," Winfrey said. "There’s no question about that, and it’s the kind of thing nobody ever says but everybody’s thinking it." Speaking with the BBC´s Will Gompertz in the UK to promote "The Butler," Winfrey also spoke to the global issue of racism. "It´s gotten better. Are there still places where people are terrorized because of the color of their
Pollster John Zogby reports in our weekly White House report card that President Obama’s health care program is still troubled, but he gets credit for taking ownership and trying to fix it. "Forget about Iran and unemployment, this week was all about Obamacare and it was a ‘Fiddler on the Roof’ moment. As Tevye would say: ´Un da vun hand, but un da udda hand…´ “So we have the president admitting he broke his promise to Americans when he promised they could keep their plans. And the GOP gloated, mocked, preached doom and a failed presidency, and made a solemn vow to
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Some 50 years after John F. Kennedy´s sole presidential term was cut short by an assassin´s bullets, nearly three-quarters of Americans believe Kennedy will go down in history as an outstanding or above-average president. This is the highest retrospective rating given to any of the 11 presidents who have held office since Dwight Eisenhower. Another fifth of the public sees the slain president as average, while just 3% rank him as below average or poor. Kennedy was killed on Nov. 22, 1963, and the 50-year anniversary of his assassination is being marked by a bevy of new
Last week I was informed by the agent who handles my firm’s health-care insurance that, come 2014, our group plan will be cancelled and replaced with an ObamaCare plan.SNIP Well, here’s how I see it. It sure looks to me as if the President of the United States, members of his administration, and Democratic Congressional leaders didn’t just lie. I think they intentionally perverted the truth. And I think they did it because, if they didn’t, they knew the bill wouldn’t pass through Congress.
She didn’t write about ‘Protecting the Heart of Christmas’ at all—instead, the eternally offended governor may have penned the perfect manual for another holiday altogether: Festivus. Initially I planned to ignore this week’s release of Good Tidings and Great Joy, Sarah Palin’s book waging war on the war on Christmas. Few political hucksters milking the culture war for an easy buck peddle antics more shopworn than the annual fear-mongering that secularist Scrooges are coming for our creches. But then I couldn’t stop wondering: What happens when the Queen of Grievance takes up arms on behalf of the Prince of Peace’s
It´s been a bad week for MSNBC, and a bad week for serious journalism. First, the network learned to regret giving Alec Baldwin a job after he called a photographer a word that is more than a little homophobic. MSNBC have since suspended his show for two weeks. Now, Martin Bashir has scraped the bottom of the proverbial barrel after launching a tirade against Sarah Palin ("America´s resident dunce") that has to be seen to be believed. And you´re warned: it is stomach churning. The beloved liberal journalist used his afternoon TV show to deliver a somewhat justified critique of
His actor parents are well known activists and Stephen Ira Beatty seems determined to follow in their footsteps. The eldest child of Warren Beatty and Annette Bening, who revealed he was transgender at the age of 14, appears in a new public service announcement (PSA) urging New York to change its Medicaid regulation which excludes transgender people from accessing healthcare. Stephen, 21, appears confident and informed as he speaks about the problem, saying: ‘I grew up outside of New York, but I´ve always known I´ve wanted to move here for the city´s vibrant artistic community. ‘As a trans person, I
MSNBC’s Martin Bashir on Friday closed his show with likely the most disgraceful rant against former Alaska governor Sarah Palin you’ve ever heard. Besides calling her “America’s resident dunce” and claiming she has a “deceased mind,” Bashir suggested that someone should defecate in her mouth and urinate in her eyes. MARTIN BASHIR: It´s time now to clear the air. And we end this week in the way it began - with America’s resident dunce, Sarah Palin, scraping the barrel of her long deceased mind, and using her all-time favorite analogy in an attempt to sound intelligent about the national debt.
The headline is a statement to, not a quote from Boehner, but it was worth the deception to make the point. President Obama has been given so much slack by an enabling Washington D.C. media, that Obama is now hanging onto the rope to avoid falling into the abyss. The fawning media who placed all their political bets on his success, is unwilling to admit publicly (and perhaps even privately) what they know in their brains but unwilling to let their heart in on: Obama is and always was a phony.
WASHINGTON - A terrifying new ‘game’ that’s already caused deaths in Syracuse, St. Louis and New Jersey is sweeping the nation, and it preys upon unsuspecting people walking the streets, anywhere. A recent report from New York-based CBS 2 shed light on the growing trend, displaying unsettling footage of teens participating in this game – which goes by the name ‘Knockout’ – and involves randomly targeting passersby, with the ultimate goal being to knock them out with one punch as they walk by. One victim shown in the footage was 46-year-old Ralph Santiago of Hoboken, N.J., who was found dead with his
Congressional Republicans have Obamacare right where they want it. The idea of a one-year delay of the law, always far-fetched as long as the Democrats controlled the Senate, is suddenly looking plausible. “I think there needs to be a one-year suspension of the entire law, at least, if not a longer suspension,” says Georgia Republican Tom Price. “The Senate Democrats and the president are the ones that have to decide it needs to be done.” When asked about a delay, House Republican whip Kevin McCarthy chuckles but doesn’t answer. Instead, he suggests that the law’s destructiveness could upend the entire health
