NBC News Deletes Huge Obamacare
Story, Stealth Edits, Breaks Drudge Link

Breitbart Big Journalism, by Ben Shapiro

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 10/29/2013 10:55:13 AM

On Monday, NBC News reported that President Obama’s administration knew for three years that Americans would lose their current insurance under Obamacare. The story quickly became the lead at the Drudge Report, making it the hottest political story on the Internet immediately. For several hours, there was no problem. Then, late at night, the story was pulled, the link was changed thereby breaking the Drudge link, and stealth edits were made to the piece. In particular, one key paragraph met the cutting room floor: None of this should come as a shock to the Obama administration. The law states that

I went on the story from DRUDGE yesterday, mostly to read the comments. There were one or two 0bamaton Cyber Warriors there with lame talking points trying to blame the Repubs. (really, that´s all they had).
The poor kiddies got their collective asses kicked by a veritable onslaught of real Americans. I think the ladies at NBC must have wet their panties at this point and did whatever they could do to protect the King.

This is bad folks, America has these leftoid creeps on the run....keep up the scare. Don´t let them up off the mat. They deserve every bit of this and Americans deserves to make their OWN DAMN HEALTH CHOICES.

Everything about 0bama is stealth; no transparency, and he will not take any criticism; so all criticism must be deleted and replaced with another fluff piece about what his big wife is wearing.

In a convoluted way, it must make Matt Drudge feel good that the regime watches him so closely.

Occasionally as I surf, I notice links that might not be flattering to Obama and his lovely wifey no longer work. Too bad the Bamster didn´t have his Internet spies set up his healthcare website. It might have worked. But I guess Moochelle´s cronies needed the millions instead.

The truth hurts. In obama´s case, it´s like throwing water on the wicked witch, or shoving a cross in the face of a vampire. He can not stand ridicule or criticism.

We can kill this monster called obamacare. Just keep up the pressure, laugh at the failures and refuse to comply with any of it. It´s illegal, immoral, and worst of all, totally unnecessary.

Can you imagine the fix NBC is in? They are supposed to be a news organization, but they are all democrats and don´t want to publish anything negative about their leader, but when they feel a need to put out something, even though they´ll put lipstick on it, they know that they might get a call from the WH admonishing them, and then they´ll feel bad. What a predicament!

"If I like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan! Period!"

"If I like you (favored groups), you can keep your plan."

"You like your plan to self-insure? Keep that to yourself."

About the missing links. May I suggest we all start finding and printing other links to the stories (providing, of course, there are other sites covering a particular piece of news). It´s very simple. The search feature at dailymail.co.uk is frequently a good place to start. You can usually find the search box to the right and below the pictures of the leading news story. Don´t forget to check "most recent" when your results turn up.

And to think Obama knew about all this before the Presidential race and that is how he won. He convinced the people who only listened to the main stream,lame, media to vote for him on false words and promises. He has been doing that ever since he took office. He and his wife are spending the tax payers money as fast as they can and doing all they can do to have a good time and spend more money. They are really living it up, playig golf, partying and going on long trips. And to think Nancy Reagan was condembed for buyig new dishes for the whitehouse.

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.

The best feast ever? A Florida fisherman caught a record-setting 805-pound shark earlier this month, and then celebrated by barbecuing the 11-foot mako and devouring it with friends. "It was really good," Joey Polk told the Daily News on Monday. "It´s not real fishy. It does not have a real gamy, fishy taste." Polk caught the mako off the Florida Panhandle with the help of two cousins. The feat is recognized by the International Land-Based Shark Fishing Association as the largest mako catch ever, he said.

The Supreme Court has upheld a ban on using race in admissions to Michigan´s public university. The court was divided on the case, which overturns a 6th Circuit Court decision. The opinion, written by Justice Anthony Kennedy, says the case is not about race admissions policies but about whether voters in a state can choose to prohibit consideration of racial preferences. "The plurality opinion stresses that the case is not about the constitutionality or the merits of race conscious admission policies in higher education. Rather, the question concerns whether and in what manner voters in a state may chose to

Former Republican presidential candidate Bob Dole weighed in on his party’s likely 2016 contenders recently, and concluded that some of the most talked-about names just aren’t ready yet. In a new interview with the Wichita Eagle, Dole calls out Ted Cruz and Rand Paul specifically to say they lack the experience to run in 2016. He takes a few shots at Obamacare too, calling the rollout a “disaster” and casting serious doubt on the administration’s claims they successfully enrolled 7 million people, while charging that Democrats don’t get nearly the kind of blame Republicans do for partisan gridlock and congressional

FREEHOLD — A family is suing a New Jersey school district, contending that the phrase "under God" in the Pledge of Allegiance is discriminatory toward atheist children. The lawsuit against the Matawan-Aberdeen Regional School District was filed in state court last month and announced Monday by the American Humanist Association. The group says the phrase, added in 1954, "marginalizes atheist and humanist kids as something less than ideal patriots." The anonymous plaintiffs say those two words violate the state constitution. But school district lawyer David Rubin says the district is merely following a state law that requires schools to have

This is a column about the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, but you won’t read a word in here about the lane-closing scandal in Fort Lee, N.J. This is about another scandal, one that has been going for on so long that people don’t even think of it as scandalous. Indeed, it involves no illegality whatsoever. But that doesn’t mean it isn’t a scandal. The Port Authority is supposed to manage — and improve — important parts of the transportation infrastructure of New York and New Jersey: airports like John F.

After a t*t-for-tat series of delays, the United States conducted an Open Skies Treaty intelligence flight over Russian territory on Monday, a State Department official said. The spy flight originally was scheduled for April 14 but was canceled by Russia after a U.S. team for the flight failed to arrive near Moscow on time and Moscow refused temporarily to reschedule it. A Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman also expressed anger on Monday over U.S. delays in certifying a new high-tech Russian aircraft to be used for spying missions over the United States under the Open Skies Treaty that permits limited legal

Clemency for Drug Offenders

Attorney General Eric Holder announced today that dozens of lawyers will be reassigned to the Justice Department’s pardon office in anticipation of a surge of applications from drug offenders for reductions in their sentences — applications the Obama administration has signaled it would look upon favorably. This exercise is another transparent usurpation of legislative power by the president. The pardon power is just the camouflage for it. The pardon power exists so that the president can act in individual cases to correct excesses and injustices. It is not supposed to be a vehicle by which presidents rewrite congressional statutes that

Over half of the 221,604 Georgia Obamacare "enrollees" the Obama administration claims as enrollments have not paid for their plans, thereby leaving them still uninsured. Georgia Insurance Commissioner Ralph Hudgens says only 107,581 Georgians have paid for coverage. "Many Georgians completed their application process by the deadline, but have yet to pay for the coverage," Hudgens said in a statement.Hudgens also said that insurance department estimates that 400,000 Georgians may lose their current health insurance coverage because of Obamacare. According to the New York Times, 20% of the individuals whom the Obama

Obama Calls for Highest Sustained
Taxation in U.S. History
Cybercast News Service, by Terence P. Jeffrey    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/21/2014 6:08:20 PM     Post Reply
In the budget proposal he presented to Congress last month, President Barack Obama called for what would be the highest level of sustained taxation ever imposed on the American people, according to the analysis published last week by the Congressional Budget Office. Under Obama’s proposal, taxes would rise from 17.6 percent of Gross Domestic Product in 2014 to 19.2 percent in 2024. During the ten years from 2015 to 2024, federal taxation would average 18.7 percent GDP. America has never been subjected to a ten-year stretch of taxation at that level.

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.

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.

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.

Harry Reid isn’t backing down from his claim that rancher Cliven Bundy’s supporters are “domestic terrorists.” It’s astonishing rhetoric given the White House’s characterization of the mass shooting by a genuine terrorist, Major Nidal Hasan, who killed 13 Americans at the Fort Hood Army base after yelling “Allahu Akbar!” (God is great.) Rather than labeling Hasan’s actions “domestic terrorism,” the Obama administration is prosecuting him for having committed “workplace violence.” Democratic rhetoric is become ever more desperate and overheated as we approach the November midterm elections.

Michelle Obama:

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.

Perhaps the most remarkable feature of American democracy is the magnificent estate of public land that it reserved from the very beginning for the use of all citizens, rich or poor.

At a petite 5’3’’, Sage Santangelo may not look like a combat fighter at first glance. But the female second lieutenant has never let that hold her back from pursuing her dream of becoming an infantry officer in the Marine Corps. Growing up, Santangelo found she was always able to keep up with the guys and enjoyed playing hockey on all boys’ teams.
