The many faces of an
Obamacare ´angry mom´

Advocate (Baton Rouge, LA), by Ryan Broussard

Original Article

Posted By:Scottyboy, 3/16/2014 11:04:26 PM

Ronnie Hooks is the “angry mom” featured in a new Obamacare ad. But Hooks, of Baton Rouge, said Sunday she had no idea her photo, bearing a stern expression and arms folded, would be used in the ad, which urges people in their mid-20s to sign up for the health care system.(snip)While she is fine with her photo appearing on the ad because she believes it could help with her acting career, Hooks said she does not want to be the spokeswoman either for or against the new health care law. “It’s such a hot-button issue, and all the views and discussions

Comments:
Another 0bamacare poster girl, another lame condescending and insulting ad.
I suppose this woman is 0bama´s idea of a "typical white person" . . .

Being associated with Obama and his destruction of healthcare is not a resume´ enhancement.

After years of terrorism that resulted in, among other things, the September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Centers, Pentagon, and Shanksville, Pennsylvania, murder of Americans in Benghazi, and the brutal hacking death of off-duty soldier, Lee Rigby in London, the main stream media is finally sounding the alarm on the religion President Obama claims America “shares common principles of justice and progress, tolerance and the dignity of all human beings.” From a beheading in Iraq to the hard-line repression of religious freedoms in Sudan, a string of extremist acts in recent weeks have raised the worrying spectre of

Nancy Pelosi: John Boehner
lawsuit is ‘subterfuge’

Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi charged that House Republicans are floating a lawsuit against President Barack Obama only to distract from the GOP’s do-nothing agenda. Speaker John Boehner told Republicans this week that he is weighing a lawsuit over Obama’s use of executive action — a possibility Pelosi called “subterfuge.” “They are doing nothing here so they have to give some aura of activity,” the California Democrat said. House Republicans contend that Obama is misusing his executive powers by side-stepping Congress on immigration and other policies, including a decision to extend family leave to same-sex couples and bar federal contractors from discriminating against

U.N. Calls For Military
Force Against ISIL in Iraq
Reuters, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: Scottyboy- 6/25/2014 5:50:25 PM     Post Reply
The United Nations on Wednesday issued an unusual call for military force, with a senior U.N. official saying the advance of Islamist militants throughout the north and east of Iraq must be dealt with militarily, though success will hinge on a broad political consensus. Nickolay Mladenov, who as U.N. special envoy to Iraq heads the world body´s political mission there, said Iraq´s key southern oil reserves remained safe. But he raised the estimated civilian death toll to at least 1,300 since the recent fighting began, up from Tuesday´s estimate of more than 1,000. His remarks came as hardline Sunni militants attacked one

Militants attacked one of Iraq´s largest air bases and seized control of several small oilfields on Wednesday as U.S. special forces troops and intelligence analysts arrived to help Iraqi security forces counter a mounting Sunni insurgency. Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki, who is fighting for his job and is under international pressure to create a more inclusive government, said he supported starting the process of forming a new cabinet within a week. In northern Iraq the Sunni militants extended a two-week advance that has been led by the hardline Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) but also includes an amalgam

BAGHDAD — Residents of a religiously mixed town in northern Iraq fled for their lives into the desert on Monday after al-Qaeda renegades stormed in, and Secretary of State John F. Kerry said U.S. drone strikes “may well be” an option to help stop the insurgents’ advances. In an interview with Yahoo! News, Kerry said the radical Islamist fighters sweeping through northern Iraq post “an existential challenge” to the country and threaten the stability of the region. He said President Obama was thoroughly considering “every option that is available,” including drone strikes, and he stressed that “we are deeply committed

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has been photographed taking a ride on the pride of his navy - an aging submarine. Photos appeared on state television of the dictator posing on the galley of the submarine´s conning tower, meeting the ship´s crew and apparently directing naval manoeuvres. South Korea´s government expressed surprise at the move as the pictures clearly showed the inside of one of the North´s most powerful ships. The South´s Yonhap News Agency said the "rusty, green submarine" was thought to be a 1,800-ton Soviet-built Romeo-class vessel, built in the 1950s. Pictures of the side of the conning tower showed what looked

The man who led the charge to have Eric H. Holder Jr. held in contempt of Congress is on a new crusade: to impeach the nation’s first black attorney general. “There’s a total disregard for the rule of law,” Rep. Paul A. Gosar, Arizona Republican, told The Washington Times. “We can’t sit idly by here as we see the Constitution and justice being defamed right and left at the whim of the attorney general.” Mr. Gosar’s list of what he says are constitutional violations includes the Justice Department giving the Obama administration permission to ignore the requirement of notifying Congress before transferring

   

 



 
It´s Liberalism Day -- Real Liberalism,

Posted By: Scottyboy- 6/16/2014 8:20:01 AM     Post Reply
Your first thought might well be, “Why do we need that? Liberalism is ruining America every day.” Point well taken, but that’s because you have absorbed the idea that “liberalism” means ever-expanding government that takes more and more of our income, spends it on thousands of wasteful special interest programs, and increasingly controls our lives. You think that “liberalism” means living under the heels of Obama, Pelosi, Reid, and their bureaucratic minions. There certainly is nothing to celebrate in that. But that conception of liberalism is an Orwellian perversion: war is peace, freedom is slavery, and now liberalism means omnipotent government. The

LONDON — Secretary of State John Kerry said on Friday that sexual violence in conflict zones should be banished “to the dark ages and the history books,” as he joined dozens of ministers and the actress Angelina Jolie to promote efforts to bring perpetrators of such crimes to justice. Mr. Kerry spoke at the end of a four-day conference in London designed to support victims and bring to account those responsible for rape and sexual violence that has scarred conflicts from the Balkans to Africa. “Sexual violence in conflict is one of the most persistent and neglected injustices imaginable, and ending this

The Obama administration is urgently considering an air assault on Islamic extremists that officials told the Guardian could be directed at targets in Syria as well as Iraq. President Obama announced on Friday that in the "days ahead" he will decide on a package of military and diplomatic options to halt the rapid advance of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isis), as the jihadist army´s march from Syria through Sunni Iraq has upended Obama´s achievement of extricating the US military from the Iraq conflict. Obama has ruled out sending US soldiers and marines back to the Iraqi

Baghdad, Iraq— Islamist rebel fighters captured two more Iraqi towns overnight in a relentless sweep south towards the capital Baghdad in a campaign to recreate a medieval caliphate carved out of fragmenting Iraq and Syria. U.S. President Barack Obama threatened military strikes against the radical Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant on Thursday, highlighting the gravity of ISIL´s threat to redraw borders in an oil-rich region with the risk of any new entity turning into a launch-pad for attacks on Western interests. In the spreading chaos, Iraqi Kurdish forces seized control of Kirkuk - an oil hub just outside their

A dozen years ago, Congress authorized President George W. Bush to invade Iraq to prevent the regime of then-dictator Saddam Hussein from posing a threat to this country with weapons of mass destruction we later discovered he did not have. In his second inaugural address in 2005, Bush described the broader utopian vision motivating his foreign policy. "So it is the policy of the United States to seek and support the growth of democratic movements and institutions in every nation and culture, with the ultimate goal of ending tyranny in our world," Bush said. To this end, he sought to

A week after an NBC News poll showed that the American people had lost faith in Obama´s competence and ability to lead, a new CBS News/New York Times poll has even worse news for a president embattled by his own incompetence, arrogance, and failed policies. In just one month, the president´s job approval rating has shifted a full 9 points against him. Though Obama was still upside on approval by 5 points (43-48%) back in May, he now faces a 14 point deficit of 40-54%. In just one month, disapproval of Obama´s foreign policy has skyrocketed a full 10 points

With a surprisingly wide margin of victory, Congressman James Lankford won the Oklahoma Republican U.S. Senate primary, defeating former Speaker of the State House of Representatives T.W. Shannon by 23 points and avoiding a runoff election. Lankford now becomes the prohibitive favorite to replace outgoing Senator Tom Coburn, who is retiring with two years remaining in his current term. This was a very different race from the one taking place in Mississippi. Despite negative ads run against Lankford by conservative groups, the Oklahoma contest was not an example of an “establishment” Republican or RINO versus a Tea Party candidate. In

Senior Obama administration officials’ closed-door briefing to senators Tuesday night revealed that the White House did not anticipate and was not prepared for the rise of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL or ISIS), which has wreaked havoc in Iraq and seized many key cities in recent weeks. Top State Department and Defense Department officials joined senators Tuesday evening for a briefing on the quickly developing chaos in Iraq and future U.S. plans for a response. Sources familiar with the brief said that the administration officials repeated talking points issued over the past several days in both open and

Women vote Democrat because they are smarter, Obama said to a White House audience Monday afternoon. He made the remark at the end of a talk at the White House Summit on Working Families. “Somebody asked: ‘Well, it’s well-known that women are more likely to vote for Democrats,’ to which I said, women are smarter,” Obama said. “This is true.” The rest of Obama’s talk centered on paid maternity leave, a minimum wage of $10.10, flexibility in the workplace, and access to childcare. He blamed Congress for moving slowly after he asked it to raise the minimum wage and when

Thad Cochran’s political resurrection began with a campaign shakeup and ended with a Hail Mary television ad. Just three weeks ago, in the dead of night on June 3, the Mississippi senator’s staff sat shaken and dejected, crestfallen at the results of a primary that deprived the six-term incumbent of an electoral majority. With Cochran forced into a runoff fight against an aggressive and energetic challenger, a dark mood shadowed his backers in Washington and Mississippi.Yet almost immediately, the Cochran coalition began bouncing back. Even on that gloomy night of June 3, Cochran adviser Stuart Stevens was insisting to staffers: “We’re

Two years after activists for same-sex marriage obtained the confidential tax return and donor list of a national group opposed to redefining marriage, the Internal Revenue Service has admitted wrongdoing and agreed to settle the resulting lawsuit. The Daily Signal has learned that, under a consent judgment today, the IRS agreed to pay $50,000 in damages to the National Organization for Marriage as a result of the unlawful release of the confidential information to a gay rights group, the Human Rights Campaign, that is NOM’s chief political rival. “Congress made the disclosure of confidential tax return information a serious matter for

Krauthammer said that things are pretty bad, but noted, “There’s a big difference between decline as a condition and decline as a choice. What we have with Obama is a president choosing decline.” He continued, “We are in a position to dominate again, but we have a president who doesn’t believe in American exceptionalism, American greatness, and he has chosen for America to retreat from the Middle East, to not lift a finger in places like Ukraine, basically to make us one nation among others.” Krauthammer said Obama is comfortable with

National conservative groups are angry after incumbent Mississippi Sen. Thad Cochran pulled off a victory in the state’s GOP run-off — likely because of his campaign’s outreach to Democratic voters. “It’s disgraceful that self-described GOP leaders like Mitch McConnell, John McCain, the Chamber of Commerce and the NRSC would champion a campaign platform of pork barrel spending and insider deal-making, while recruiting Democrats to show up at the polls,” Matt Kibbe of FreedomWorks said after the results came in. Tuesday’s closely-watched run-off came after conservative state Sen. Chris McDaniel edged Cochran in votes in the initial election earlier this month.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has had a rough time of it ever since she asserted that both she and her husband were “dead broke” and “struggled” after leaving the White House in 2001. “A few weeks before they left the White House, the Clintons were able to muster a cash down payment of $855,000 and secure a $1.995 million mortgage,” Politifact observed. “This hardly fits the common meaning of ‘dead broke.’” Clinton might have taken the public backlash over this minor gaffe in stride, but she didn’t.

Given the bitter nature of the runoff in Mississippi, this probably surprises no one, but it’s also unlikely to produce any further surprises. After a narrow loss to incumbent Senator Thad Cochran, Chris McDaniel refused to concede last night. Instead, he blasted Cochran’s GOTV strategy and promised a challenge to the results: State Sen. Chris McDaniel will challenge the results of the Tuesday runoff election where 41-year incumbent Sen.

President Obama is now reaching terminal velocity, like a skydiver plunging toward earth. Except he doesn’t have a parachute. There’s a mighty splat coming soon. With his approval rating at 40 percent, down 6 points from early June, and just 29 percent of Americans convinced the country is on the “right track,” the president is doubling down on his strategy of blaming Republicans for his failures. And he’s shifting into hyperpartisan drive, traveling the country to campaign for Democrats, many of whom wish he’d just stay away. Worse, the news just keeps getting well, worse: The Veterans Affairs scandal is blazing, with
