*Updated* The List: Unnecessarily
Shut Down By ObamaTo
Inflict Public Pain

Breitbart Big Government, by John Nolte

Original Article

Posted By:drive, 10/7/2013 7:29:06 AM

While our president still enjoys his essential employees and locations: the White House chefs, Camp David, and a military golf course, there doesn´t seem to be any question that in mercenary pursuit of a political win, this White House is determined to unreasonably punish as many everyday people as possible. And this includes children sick with cancer. That might sound like hyperbole, but it is not. Although Barack Obama´s chefs have been deemed "essential," employees at the National Institutes of Health who offer last-chance experimental cancer treatments for children suffering from cancer have not. Worse still, House Republicans have offered to

Why, oh why, doesn´t the RNC go on the offensive and purchase TV ads to let the lofos know about this. They could buy time on the Honey Boo Boo show, etc. I´m serious. Don´t take this lying down! Fight back!

Antisocial Personality Disorder: Pathological lying and a desire to inflict pain on others are two key components.

Obama has updated Bill Clinton´s "I feel your pain" to "I am the cause of you pain".

Obama knows that over half of America will tolerate a degree of pain if that pain lessens the uncertainty of life. The pain can be from closed monuments & parks, higher gasoline prices, intrusive regulations, reduced employment, lack of credit, national scandals and incredible waste of tax money. But as long as there is the certainty of 99 weeks of unemployment checks, food stamps, affirmative action, Obamacare and disability checks, the pain if bearable. Obama has also painted the GOP as the party of even greater pain, and with the grimaces caused by McPain and his ilk, it´s easy to believe this lie.

I was told at Mass this morning that the priest who says Sunday Mass at the Air Station here in Beaufort, SC was told he´d not be compensated because he´d been furloughed. If any priest volunteered to perform the sacrifice of Mass, he´d be arrested! I ask you, how is this different from Nazi Germany?

This list of Obama´s ´rulings´ tells us all we need to know about this president - as if we didn´t already know. Heard this morning about the ´Amber Alert´ program possibly being shut down and also some attempts to ´close the oceans´ to fishermen, etc. That´s going to take a whole hell of a lot of gates and fencing.

The Amber Alert program shutdown, if true, is despicable and beyond belief; The ´water barriers´ thing proves how desperate, heavy-handed and spiteful this administration is.

Obama´s decisions regarding ´essential and non-essential´ services aside, this is an administration run amok with power.

Can´t help but equate we citizens to a bunch of little bunnies in a room with no way out for them - then the door is opened and a dozen starving, rabid wolves come running in to have their way with them. Which one of the bunnies is going to stop them? And how? We, the people, have almost lost control of our country. Thank God for those willing to step up, fight and speak out for us. Feeling helpless and very angry.

Next he´ll be insisting that cat-owners microwave their cats, cut off puppy-tails and give up their pet ferrets.

What´s next? Cutting off power to people who set them higher or lower than Obama wants?

Cutting off water to people who water their lawns?

Pulling the kill-switch on the Internet?

Hacking the powergrids?

We have a terrorist in our midst - the President of the United States. He has done and continues to do more damage to the peace and tranquility of this country, more damage to race relations, more damage to the national psyche than any human being I have ever known.

More to the point, he enjoys it. This is one sick man...

So John Roberts, you say Obamacare is a tax. And now the government is closing memorials to our freedoms because we do not want this tax. These memorials are honored sights to the sacrifices of Americans to ensure our freedom. Now it turns out we do not have the freedom to visit these hallowed places, unless we approve of the Obamacare takeover and bow to the government.

Nature has largely rendered #19 moot, as the whole area around Mt. Rushmore is inaccessible to most visitors due to heavy snow this weekend (over a foot deep in many places).

So far, the MSM have honed their spin on the shutdown, framing it as Boehner holding government services hostage until Obamacare is repealed. That the White House is doing that very thing (holding services hostage unless the funding bill includes Obamacare and increases the debt ceiling to cover it) is irrelevant to them.

How I hate the MSM whose mission to facilitate the world´s evolution toward their envisioned utopia of One World Socialism leads them to distort reporting to manipulate public perception like this. Jesus commanded us to love our enemies and pray for those who persecute us. But make no mistake, they are our enemies.

Positively chilling. The fact that it is so "in our face" suggests that there is no thought of risking the loyal base. That suggests that the loyal base is largely " the ends justify the means" oriented. Could we possibly be that polarized?

As bad as the shutdown is to Americans, we are finding out what is really needed and what government services are useless.

And ultimately Barry Sorento will take the heat, and his people. I would rather keep Barry tied up with these issues than let him deal with court appointees, UN Gun treaties and gun bans.

His Face Book page is taking real serious heat for OdumboCare costs, not good for him either.

On Amazon, you can still read a few short, powerful excerpts describing Soetero´s psychological problems from the book by
Dr Paul Fick, THE DESTRUCTIVE PRESIDENT.
Check it out, this raging vindictive adult
who suffered a painful childhood and never
resolved these hurts, with elected power is now inflicting this pain on all of America.
In the Clinton days, Dr Fick wrote the big
bestseller THE DYSFUNCTIONAL PRESIDENT,
describing Bill´s compulsive lying and sexual aggression mania, before Monica Lewinsky revealed it all in the press.Two great books analyzing the failings of two

The bottom line is that the Federal Government is too involved in our day to day lives, has too much power and needs to be cut back, not expanded with Obamacare.
The States must move to take back power that belongs to them.

The unmitigated pettiness of this little foot stomping episode is a powerful statement on the current irrelevance and impotence of the FedGov to conservatives. But, if we give in things will get deadly serious in a hurry. The left will control us just as completely as the people they feed. Obama will be able to furlough whole chunks of the medical sector any time we step out of line. Or worse. Isn´t the current crop of abuse-of-power scandals bad enough?

Item #1 on the list is a precursor to what´s in store for all of us in ObamaCare. If NIH workers who provide last-chance experimental treatment for cancer-stricken children are classified as "non-essential", how must the *children* be classified -- "disposable"? And how much less valuable to Obama´s socialist society must the elderly be?

Many National Park rangers are environmental zealots and nut jobs. That´s why they like wearing a uniform and telling people what to do. It is absolutely disgraceful that too many of them are perfectly willing to stop their fellow Americans from using parks & visiting monuments WE PAID FOR! We own these things --- not our African white President. How DARE they stop a vet from visiting his/her own place of honor. And closing a military graveyard! Unheard of in our 237 year history.

If I worked for the Feds right now, I´d call in sick until this was over as I could not bear to implement such an unjust and un-American decision as to ban the use by the taxpayers of something they own.

Is there any doubt that some of these so-called "civil servants" won´t turn a gun on us when the time comes? Look for Obama to use force to get his way --- up to and including the declaration of martial law after he deliberately "defaults" on our debts. The clowns in the NSA and Homeland Security will happily start to carry machine guns like some banana republic and they will use them against us. I have a very uneasy feeling about how this will all play out. Keep your powder dry, folks!

Going Negative On Affirmative Action
American Spectator, by Matt Purple    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 4/23/2014 11:13:32 AM     Post Reply
The good news about yesterday’s Supreme Court ruling is that it affirmed the right of the people to ban racial preferences in university admissions. The bad news is that it didn´t go further. In 2003, the Court handed down two landmark decisions: Gratz v. Bollinger and Grutter v. Bollinger. Taken together, the cases struck down a racial quota system used in admissions at the University of Michigan, but allowed for more limited race-based preferences. As Kevin Mooney pointed out, Justice Sandra Day O’Connor said in the Grutter decision that voters have the last say on affirmative action regimes. So the people of

Today is Earth Day. Fox News’ The Five opened its show with a nearly 15 minute segment titled “Earth Day Hysteria.” The goal appeared to be to prove that scientists’ warnings about climate change are overblown and should be ignored if not outright mocked and co-host Eric Bolling was the ringleader of the effort. But he found an adversary in Bob Beckel, who challenged the status quo by presenting actual data on the rise of CO2 levels from NASA, of all places. But before Beckel got to his chart, Bolling took some time to “praise” President Barack Obama for what

The Republican National Committee has released a brutal memo on Senate majority leader Harry Reid, savaging him for repeatedly lying. The memo, under the name of press secretary Kirsten Kukowski, is titled "Nothing’s Too Unethical for Harry Reid." "Harry Reid is having a bad month," the memo begins. "He was caught funneling campaign money to his relatives. His Senate Majority PAC was caught lying to voters. And he was caught hypocritically accepting money tied to people he calls ´un-American.´ As he desperately clings to power, is there anything Harry Reid won’t do to promote his own self interests?"

The top Republicans in the Illinois Legislature are pushing back against Democrats´ plan to offer $100 million in taxpayer money to lure President Obama´s presidential library to Chicago, arguing the cash-strapped state can´t afford the investment. Minority Leader Jim Durkin said in a prepared statement released Monday that the state cannot afford the proposal when Illinois owes $7 billion in overdue bills and has a $100 billion deficit in its employee pension programs.

The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) announced stiff sanctions today against the team doctor, the team coach and the team trainer for cyclist Lance Armstrong, saying that they were all involved in a “conspiracy to commit widespread doping” over many years and with many riders. The decision was rendered by a three-member, independent panel of the American Arbitration Association North American Court of Arbitration for Sport. The full announcement is here. It imposed a 10-year ban on Johan Bruyneel, the team director, and eight-year bans for the doctor, Pedro Celaya, and the trainer, Jose “Pepe” Martí, as the result of their roles in

"What the climate justice movement is demanding is the ultimate abolition of fossil fuels," writes MSNBC´s Chris Hayes in a lengthy new call for action against global warming. To drive home the point, Hayes´ piece, published in The Nation, is titled "The New Abolitionism," and its message is that a way must be found to "convince or coerce" the world´s energy companies and energy-producing nations to give up the multi-trillion dollar business of powering the planet.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Steve Huber, an affable salesman who is still paying off an unexpected medical bill, was not among the millions of Americans who signed up for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act during the enrollment period that ended March 31. After seeing television ads for Kentucky’s new online insurance marketplace, Mr. Huber, 57, made several attempts to explore the website but found it too complicated. Moreover, his income has dropped in recent years, he said, and he felt certain that he could not afford coverage.

When it comes to immigration, many Republican members of the House have long distrusted their leader, Speaker John Boehner. Now, things have gotten even worse. Boehner has assured members who oppose comprehensive immigration reform that nothing will be done on the issue until the Obama administration "can be trusted to enforce our laws." Given the average GOP Congressman´s view of Barack Obama, that means "never." That´s certainly how many members interpreted the speaker´s words.

Vice President Joe Biden is warning his Democratic base to drop the apathy and pledge to vote in the fall midterms or see the administration´s achievements like Obamacare get sunk by a Republican majority in the House and Senate. He headlined his latest scare-mail “If we lose,” and warned that the GOP will pass the tough budget authored by Rep. Paul Ryan, and repeal Obamacare. “If Republicans hold on to their majority in the House and win back control of the Senate in November -- and believe me, that´s a real possibility -- then I can guarantee you that we´ll

Easter services today are expected to kick off a record-breaking week at the Vatican. Two beloved modern popes — John Paul II and John XXIII — are to be canonized at the Vatican next Sunday by Pope Francis. There will be services all week, which could draw the most pilgrims ever to the Catholic capital. John Paul II is remembered for helping to bring down communism and for inspiring a generation of Catholics. Many now call him “The Great,” only the fourth pope to have earned the moniker.

U.S. Attorney General Holder was clearly inferring racism especially given the room at the National Action Network which included one of America´s top race baiters, Al Sharpton. Democrats are pushing a racism narrative in a cynical, divisive election year political ploy. They want to paint Republicans as someone to run away from. In the last week we see a pattern of top Democrats playing the race card expertly as they always do. As reported in the Daily Caller On Wednesday afternoon, Attorney General Eric Holder threw out some thinly veiled race-hate, telling an audience that criticism of his contempt for Congress was “unprecedented,

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

The Citizens Commission on Benghazi, a self-selected group of former top military officers, CIA insiders and think-tankers, declared Tuesday in Washington that a seven-month review of the deadly 2012 terrorist attack has determined that it could have been prevented – if the U.S. hadn´t been helping to arm al-Qaeda militias throughout Libya a year earlier. ´The United States switched sides in the war on terror with what we did in Libya, knowingly facilitating the provision of weapons to known al-Qaeda militias and figures,´ Clare Lopez, a member of the commission and a former CIA officer, told MailOnline.

Public Trust: Sixty-one percent polled say President Obama lies "some of the time" or "most of the time" on matters of national importance. Americans have to ask: Why do we let him get away with it? It´s no surprise that a Fox News poll of 1,012 registered voters last week found immense distrust of a president whose main domestic initiative was based on a lie. The shock is that the same poll found his disapproval level down to its lowest since last fall. Asked, "How often do you think Barack Obama lies to the country on important matters?" 37% replied "most of

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

New audio reveals an Eastern Connecticut State University professor warning that Republicans will “want things to go back — not to to 1955, but to 1855? if they win control of Congress in November. Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine. To help picture the future, Martin Vargic, an amateur graphic designer from Slovakia, has created a map depicting the planet with sea levels around 260ft (79m) higher than they are today. He imagines what Earth would look like if the ice sheets surrounding the North and South poles melted, releasing

It may not be tomorrow, but Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) says "something will happen" to force a Nevada rancher to obey a court order to stop grazing his cattle on federal land and pay his grazing fees. "It´s obvious that you can´t just walk away from this," Reid said in an April 18 interview with a Nevada´s KSNV-TV News 3 program “What’s Your Point?” "You can´t have a law that is -- we´re a nation of laws, not of men and women," he said.

Thirty-eight Republican lawmakers, including such unlikely bedfellows as John McCain of Arizona and Ted Cruz of Texas, have joined to support a lawsuit challenging the legality of the Affordable Care Act and accusing the president of repeatedly ignoring the law he signed for political reasons. The lawmakers have signed onto a legal brief in support of a lawsuit filed by Sen. Ron Johnson, the Wisconsin Republican who is asking a federal court to overturn Obamacare’s special treatment for members of Congress and their staffs. “The unlawful executive action at issue in this case is not an isolated incident,” the brief

Nearly a dozen states have quietly signed onto a plan to effectively ditch the Electoral College and instead, award the White House to the candidate that wins the popular vote. The National Popular Vote agreement would take effect if states that represent 270 electoral votes all commit. New York has most recently joined the efforts, bringing the number of states to 10 plus the District of Columbia. Altogether, they represent 165 electoral votes. Without the Electoral College, FoxNews.com digital politics editor Chris Stirewalt said we would have had a whole different trajectory of presidents. If presidents are selected through the
