Can Shameless, Baseless Propaganda
Save the Dems?

American Spectator, by David Catron

Original Article

Posted By:garnet, 7/7/2014 7:34:46 AM

For most of 2014, the Democrats looked on the looming congressional elections with considerable dread. All of the standard indicators portend an unhappy outcome for their party.(snip) Then came last week’s Hobby Lobby ruling. In that imminently sensible Supreme Court decision, the Democrats found an unhoped-for opportunity for shameless demagoguery. Indulging their gift for Orwellian rhetoric, they declared that the Court had re-opened hostilities in the fabled “war on women.” (snip) Millions of American women, they thundered, will now be denied access to birth control because five male justices sided with the closet theocrats who own Hobby Lobby.

Why not? It´s been working for 100 years!

It´s even the basic curriculum of our so-called schools!

I disagree with the author´s assessment in the last paragraph where he states that the dems will not succeed. At no point during the weekend did I see a member of the MSM challenge these dems on their talking points or ask follow up questions. Also notice the picture at the beginning, professional quality signs (that are not cheap) already printed, a coherent (also untrue) message already crafted, a spokesperson (who is an argument for birth control) appointed are a few of the things I notice. That the untrue message was rolled out nationally is proof to me that this was carefully coordinated. This leads to the conclusion that we no not have a free press, but one that is coordinated. I will put on my tin hat and say I think it is the "establishment" crony capitalists; thus flipping the senate will not accomplish anything except to further discourage the base going into 2016.

It is not just propaganda. The Dims will use the Alinsky tactics of personal destruction (see the recently concluded campaign in MS). What is at stake is a vast pool of money. And there are no limits in the quest for money and power. Demagoguery, race-baiting, false reporting, cover-ups of actual conduct, smears, vote-buying, ballot-box stuffing, intimidation, every dirty trick ever tried (see Nixon, R.) will be used.
You will be lied to. The central Big Lie is that the Dims care about you. They don´t, of course. They care only about themselves.
See J. Abner Peddiwell for details. [You could look him up.]
This is WAR. All out, take no prisoners, everything on the line, do whatever it takes, but get those votes.
Care about the country? None of that. It is all self, self, self.

The other night at dinner I had to explain the truth about the Hobby Lobby ruling and the 16 forms of birth control they cover to people who only get their news from the leftist media. They had totally swallowed the propaganda spoon fed to them by zippy, the feminazi´s and the likes of NPR.

The Dems have 45% of the electorate and 100% of the MSM in their pocket permanently. The propaganda is superfluous there and of no incremental value. IMO the combination of 0´care, Immigration, IRS arrogance has tipped the scales for the middle 10%. This is for the Republicans to lose. That does not mean they won´t try hard to do just that.

Considering 0bama´s(D!) abysmal Administration´s(D!) statist policies(D!), it seems apparent that any future vote for a dem pol is a vote to simply give away America the Beautiful to even more illegalities & corruption. The dem party seems determined NOT to represent the interests, will nor even security of the American citizens anymore. ...Who couldn´t observe that only the ILLEGAL aliens invading our southern border seem to have influence in the dem party these days! American citizens are but the latest to be thrown under the 0bama bus. s/

Democrats still haven´t learned
Obamacare lesson
Politico, by David Nather and Jennifer Haberkorn    Original Article

Memo to Democrats: This is what happens when you pass a law where you can’t fix simple drafting errors. Within hours of each other, two federal courts reached exactly opposite conclusions Tuesday about whether the vague wording of Obamacare allows people to get subsidies through the federal health insurance exchange. One said, sorry, that’s not what the law says. The other said, sure, they can get the subsidies — the Obama administration has the power to do that. The conflicting rulings were another wake-up call for Democrats about the fragility of the health care law — and a reminder that whenever they

Whenever he got around to reading the unpleasant item in the Page Six column on Wednesday, Meet the Press moderator David Gregory could not have been happy with NBC’s tepid denial that his job is on the line. “We heard the same false rumors and suggest you take them with a grain of salt, as we did,” the New York Post’s premier gossip column quoted a so-called NBC spokesperson. “Just a grain of salt?” Gregory might have thought to himself. “Not even a teaspoon?” The spokesperson’s quote—which seemed to some observers an act of premeditated murder—was in stark contrast to NBC News President

At the border, whose side
is the president really on?
Washington Post, by Ed Rogers    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 7/24/2014 9:25:36 AM     Post Reply
As you might expect, President Obama wants to have it both ways. He says he supports helping those Americans who are working to stem the tide of illegal immigration and are defending our borders while also declaring that we must show compassion for those who have appeared at our borders from other countries. However, some of what the president has said and done — and, in some cases, has not done — raises the question of whose side the president is really on.First, The Post reported that “top officials at the White House and the State Department had been warned

Obamacare Slowly Succumbs
to Its Birth Defects
PJ Media, by David Catron    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 7/23/2014 7:40:32 AM     Post Reply
The supporters of the ironically titled “Affordable Care Act” are attempting to downplay their latest legal defeats by pretending that they are disappointing but inconsequential stumbles in the law’s long march toward the pantheon of nanny state entitlements. These people are whistling past the graveyard. In fact, the president’s “signature domestic achievement” is moribund. It is a congressional crack baby afflicted with multiple organ failures caused by the Democrat addiction to corrupt bargains and unconstitutional edicts. Yesterday’s appeals court ruling against the Obama administration unequivocally confirms that reality.

Obamacare ... Again
American Spectator, by David Catron    Original Article

Obamacare’s supporters have long insisted that it is the “law of the land,” implicitly suggesting that it is immutable and permanent. Evidently, it hasn’t occurred to these people to mention that to their dear leader. His Majesty, Barack I, obviously thinks of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act as a collection of royal decrees, any one of which may be altered at his pleasure. Thus, in a proclamation issued last week through the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, His Highness declared that all U.S. territories are now exempt from most of PPACA’s morass of rules and regulations.

Will no one rid me of this troublesome priest?—King Henry II. The President of the United States went to Minneapolis the other day, where he gave a speech complaining about Republicans in Congress who stand in the way of what he wants to do. This excerpt is from the White House website: "And, now, some of you may have read—so we take these actions and then now Republicans are mad at me for taking these actions. They´re not doing anything, and then they´re mad that I´m doing something. I´m not sure which of the things I´ve done they find most offensive, but

John Kerry’s nightmare dream job

Posted By: garnet- 7/3/2014 10:08:49 AM     Post Reply
I’ve never had many charitable things to say about John Kerry, but now it’s worse; I feel sorry for him. Kerry certainly isn’t an evil fellow, merely a run-of-the-mill narcissistic opportunist who has risen to the top of the political heap. I admire his service in Vietnam; many children of privilege — did someone mention George W. Bush? — found ways to avoid the war. If he had any stellar accomplishments during his 28 years in the Senate, they are not etched in my memory. He proved to be an inept presidential candidate in 2004. But now, the spin goes,

I had just turned 22 and I had the self-esteem of a squashed toad. This may explain why I was having an affair with a married 36-year-old sound mixer whom I’d met on a film shoot a couple of months earlier. I’d had only one serious boyfriend by this time and recently had been asked for the first time, “Can I buy you a drink?” by a man. (He was an actor in a film I’d worked on the summer before; he asked everybody that question, but still it felt like progress.) Somehow, by that tender age, I had convinced myself

Now that the Supreme Court has issued its ruling in the Hobby Lobby case, the legal fight over the Affordable Care Act will shift a few blocks away to another Washington courtroom, where a far more fundamental challenge to Obamacare is about to be decided by the powerful U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. Indeed, if Hobby Lobby will create complications for Obamacare, Halbig vs. Burwell could trigger a full cardiac arrest. The Halbig case challenges the massive federal subsidies in the form of tax credits made available to people with financial need who enroll in the program. In crafting the act, Congress created incentives

Texas Governor Rick Perry went on Hannity tonight to discuss the illegal immigrant crisis at the US southern border. Perry shared these shocking numbers on the current crisis. “Sean, there have been over the course of the last five years, since the fall of ’08, over 203,000 individuals who have come into Texas illegally who have been booked into our county jails. Those individuals have accounted for over 3,000 homicides and over 8,000 sexual assaults. We can’t afford to wait for Washington to secure this border. We’ve had enough.”

President Obama told Democratic donors Wednesday night that most Americans don’t have time to think about the details of the Benghazi terrorist attack or the problems with Obamacare. Speaking at a fundraiser at the Los Angeles home of “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Scandal” creator Shonda Rhimes, the president took his usual shots at the Republican Party, suggesting its members are focused on the wrong issues and frequently “obfuscate and they bamboozle and sometimes don’t say what’s true.” And because people are not familiar with the intricacies of many public-policy issues, Republicans can get away with such obfuscation, he said. “The Republican

I received a call from my sons’ school in March telling me that my oldest needed to be picked up early. He had been given a one-day suspension because he had thrown a chair. He did not hit anyone, but he could have, the school officials told me. JJ was 4 at the time. I agreed his behavior was inappropriate, but I was shocked that it resulted in a suspension. For weeks, it seemed as if JJ was on the chopping block. He was suspended two more times, once for throwing another chair and then for spitting on a student

In scandal after scandal in the Obama administration, President Obama has said he didn’t know about the problems until he heard it on the news. But the president changed his tune about his supposed ignorance at a Democratic fundraiser near Seattle on Tuesday night. Mr. Obama told supporters that he doesn’t watch the news because, “Whatever they’re reporting about, usually I know.” That contrasts with the explanations that the president and his aides have given from scandals in the past few years ranging from long wait times and deaths at the VA, to the IRS targeting tea party groups, to the

Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin on Tuesday urged Walgreen Co. to reconsider a possible move of its headquarters to Switzerland to lower its U.S. tax bill. In a letter to Walgreen Chief Executive Gregory Wasson, Durbin said the company could face a backlash from its customers. “I believe you will find that your customers are deeply patriotic and will not support Walgreen’s decision to turn its back on the United States,” Durbin wrote. “Nearly all of your $2.5 billion in profits earned last year were from sales to U.S. taxpaying customers.” The senator ended his letter with a twist on Walgreen’s

A year after news of the Monica Lewinsky scandal broke, former First Lady Hillary Clinton allegedly told a Pulitzer-prize winning journalist that it was former President Bill Clinton’s abusive mother that caused his unfaithfulness and sex addiction, a new book claims. That journalist was Lucinda Franks and while her latest book, “Timeless: Love, Morgenthau, and Me,” doesn’t have much to do about the Clintons, the part that does offers never before reported information from a 1999 interview with the former First Lady. The New York Daily News obtained parts of the book a month before its scheduled August 2014 release.

While our current secretary of state John Kerry is under fire for sarcastically joking about Israel’s “pinpoint operation” in Gaza, one former secretary of state echoed those sentiments during an appearance on CNN Tuesday afternoon. Speaking to Wolf Blitzer, Madeleine Albright said she thinks Israel is “overdoing” it with its offensive into the Gaza Strip and losing some of its “moral authority” in the process. “I do think the point has to be made, if rockets are being shot at Israel, that Israel does have a right to defend itself,” Albright said. “But the bottom line is the question of proportionality.” Blitzer singled out her use of the word

Colchester – Experts estimate there are nearly 300 adult loons living on Vermont´s lakes and ponds, up from just a couple dozen 30 years ago. On Saturday, more than 200 volunteers spread out across Vermont for the annual loon survey. The results of the survey are trickling in, but Eric Hanson of the Vermont Center for Ecostudies and the coordinator of the Vermont Loon Conservation Project, said there are many more birds now than just a few years ago. He said 15 years ago there were around 100 loons. In 1983, biologists counted only 29. "It is a decent, stable population. I'm hoping that actually things do start to level out.

If you’re headed to Capitol Hill with a cause, it helps to be a Kennedy. For Robert Kennedy Jr., scion of America’s most storied political family, all it takes is his name to arrange face-to-face meetings with two powerful Senators.
