Maher and Guests Battle Over
Whether Obama Governs ‘Out
of Fear of Assassination’

Mediaite, by Andrew Kirell

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 10/12/2013 10:47:24 PM

During the “Overtime” online edition of HBO’s Real Time, host Bill Maher posited that President Obama moderates his political positions out of fear of being assassinated, leading to a panel-wide battle over whether Americans are “subconsciously racist” against the president. While lamenting with Oliver Stone about the short political career of John F. Kennedy, Maher suggested that bold leaders like JFK “always seem to, at the end of the day, get cut out of the picture, violently or otherwise. And maybe that is why Barack Obama is more of a centrist than we want him to be?” “You think that?”

I work on the theory that Democrats always use projection so from Maher´s comments I surmise that 0bama fears assassination. The only twist is that instead of being afraid of conservatives, he´s afraid of the hidden communists that give him his marching orders.

It´s more likely that he´s afraid that his leftist handlers are coming to the realization that he´d be more valuable to them as a martyr. He´s that big of a domestic and international joke.

A very high number of Generals and Admirals have been fired in a relatively short period of time. Could they have been those who are Patriots? The ones who aren´t Clinton pantywaists? Is Obama making the military coup proof?
He put Morsi in office and saw what happened when the People had enough of the dictator. The military controls Egypt now, Muslim Brotherhood on the run.

These people are plain nuts. ALL the political violence in America since the Eighties has been effected by Leftists or Izzies, yet they keep talking about us on the Right as violent types. We don´t want to KILL Obama; we want to JAIL Obama. Failing that, we just want him out of office where he can´t do so much damage.

In 2005 GWBush was speaking in the Republic of Georgia when a terrorist, Vladimir Arutyunian, threw a Russian RGD-5 hand grenade on stage, which, by the grace of God, turned out to be a dud. The American media didn´t even cover it.

The left is wishing, hoping, dying for Obama to get whacked. So much so, that the Secret Service really needs to put GPS collars on Maher, Olbermann, Baldwin, Penn, Glover, etc.

LOL. The paranoid Left just can´t figure out the Right. They are atheists, don´t believe in first of all LIBERTY, or the free market or self reliance, and they find the Constitution irrelevant, except when by pure coincidence, the Constitution agrees with them. So they have no way of grasping what in the world we are talking about most of the time. And so they project with what they do know so well: meanness, pettiness, racism and paranoid plots.

As much as I despise Obama,the idea of killing him is very revolting.It´s sick to even say something like this on tv.Obama has demonstrated what being far left is all about and may help us in future elections.People are losing 8 years of their lives under Obama and it´s a scar that won´t go away for a long time.People that suffered through the depression saved money long after they became successful and wealthy.
There´s no bigger left wing black than Tavis Smiley and he´s even woke up to what a disaster Obama has been for blacks.

Great I´ll volley this back to Maher´s side of the court. If you talk about it then YOU must be thinking it.
It´s not the accused racist it just might be the leftist communist fellow traveler who see the benefit of Obama as a martyr like another poster mentioned. Sometime the attack you fear is not from the enemy you fight.
Just a day ago Rush read that Jackie Kennedy lamented that her husband was killed by an obscure little communist. Maybe an evil cabal of Republicans would have served their goals better. It´s not the death it´s the style of death. Only a demented, godless, idiot like Maher thinks like this. I certainly don´t think about it an I´m the racist he is referring to.

Texas Officials Blast Gay Marriage Ruling
Breitbart Texas, by Kristin Tate    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 2/26/2014 10:05:53 PM     Post Reply
AUSTIN, TX.--Texas´ ban on gay marriage was struck down by San Antonio-based federal Judge Orlando Garcia today. The judge suspended his ruling, however, meaning that the ban will remain in place until a secondary ruling by an appeals court later this year. Federal judges have the right to suspend a law if it is believed to cause significant suffering for the plaintiffs. The original lawsuit in Texas was filed by two gay couples: Cleopatra De Leon and Nicole Dimetman of Austin; and Mark Phariss and Victor Holmes of Plano. In his decision, Judge Garcia said the gay marriage ban has no "rational

Russian spy ship docked in Havana

Havana- A Russian warship was docked in Havana Wednesday, without explanation from Communist Cuba or its state media. The Viktor Leonov CCB-175 boat, measuring 91.5 meters (300 feet) long and 14.5 meters wide, was docked at the port of Havana´s cruise ship area, near the Russian Orthodox Cathedral. The Vishnya, or Meridian-class intelligence ship, which has a crew of around 200, went into service in the Black Sea in 1988 before it was transferred seven years later to the northern fleet, Russian media sources said. Neither Cuban authorities nor state media have mentioned the ship´s visit, unlike on previous tours

As both sides ramp up pressure in the fight over legislation that opponents say encourages discrimination against gays and lesbians, Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer´s office said she would make a statement about the controversial bill Wednesday. Brewer is expected to veto the measure, but she hasn´t said publicly what steps she´ll take. Opinions are sharply divided on the politically charged measure, SB 1062, approved last week by the state´s Republican-led legislature and now at Brewer´s desk. Brewer´s office said she would make a statement at 7:45 p.m. ET today. The bill proposes to give Arizona businesses that assert their religious

Two Muslim converts found guilty of brutally murdering British soldier Lee Rigby in broad daylight in a London street have been sentenced today. Michael Adebolajo and Michael Adebowale were found guilty on 19th December 2013 of killing 25-year-old soldier Lee Rigby, who had served a tour of duty in Afghanistan. Adebolajo, 28, was sentenced to a whole life tariff. Adebowale, 22, was sentenced to 45 years in prison.

According to multiple sources, Bullock´s deal with Warner Bros. for the Alfonso Cuaron-directed space epic calls for her to earn $20 million upfront against 15 percent of first-dollar gross. That means once her advance is covered, she will collect 15 percent of the studio´s slice of the box-office pie, known as "film rentals." Each studio negotiates individual deals with

AUSTIN, Texas — A federal judge has struck down Texas’ ban on gay marriage, but is leaving it in place pending a ruling by an appeals court later this year. Judge Orlando Garcia issued a preliminary injunction on the ban Wednesday, then suspended his ruling. Two gay couples had challenged the state’s constitutional amendment and a longstanding law banning gay marriage.Under federal court rules, a judge may suspend a law if he or she believes the plaintiffs have a strong case and will suffer if the law is enforced. Garcia said his injunction against Texas enforcing its ban will take effect

On Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden blamed “hatred” as the motivating force behind voter identification laws in states such as North Carolina, Alabama, and Texas. Biden wants new laws to block “former slave holding states in the south” from discrimination against blacks and other minorities. Biden, speaking at a reception at the Naval Observatory in Washington, D.C., in celebration of African-American History Month, said that, "These guys never go away. Hatred never, never goes away.

My mother raised us because my father died when I was 8,” the 54-year-old said, explaining why she grew up in Virginia. “He was killed while running for president.”Ethel Kennedy, 85, was in court

Can Obamacare Avoid a Consumer Rebellion?
National Journal, by Sam Baker    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 2/26/2014 1:23:54 PM     Post Reply
When Obamacare handed insurance companies millions of compulsory customers, it also handed them a reminder of one of their industry´s toughest realities: Consumers want low premiums, and they want to see any doctor they want. And it´s impossible to give them both. Generally, insurers selling plans on Obamacare´s exchanges opted to keep premiums low, hoping the public would prefer a low upfront price tag—even if that meant customers couldn´t always pick their first-choice doctor. But "if you like your doctor, you can hope she´s in our network" was always going to be a tough sell for insurers. With the insurance
