Irony Alert

“We are doing what should be done,” said Rudolfo Figueroa, representative of INAMI in Baja California. “Foreigners who enter Mexico have the obligation to register; if they will be in national territory for more than seven days, they have to pay the right of non-residents.”

Figueroa said that the implementation is a pilot program, but the legislation has existed since 2012.

The National Immigration Institute in Mexico (INAMI) has started a pilot program in which foreigners that enter Mexican territory for more than seven days or they will be involved in paid work, they will have to pay 306 pesos, or about 28 US dollars. (10 News)

On the tough side, the president wants U.S. immigration authorities to go after terrorists, felons, and new illegal border crossers. On the not-so-tough side, the administration views convicted drunk drivers, sex abusers, drug dealers, and gun offenders as second-level enforcement priorities. An illegal immigrant could spend up to a year in prison for a violent crime and still not be a top removal priority for the Obama administration.

DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson says his department must develop “smart enforcement priorities” to exercise “prosecutorial discretion” in order to best use his agency’s limited resources.

Orwellian BS at it’s finest.

Illegal immigrants who are also terrorists are clearly a top priority, as they should be. Illegal immigrants who are drunk drivers, sex abusers, drug dealers, and gun offenders — not so much. In addition, an illegal immigrant can run up a significant number of misdemeanor convictions — not arrests, not charges, but convictions — and still fall short qualifying for deportation. The president’s new policies will likely make a number of illegal immigrants who are also criminals very happy. (Examiner)

The Obama administration is bracing for another surge of illegal immigrants next spring, bringing online a family detention center that will have 2,400 beds.

MORE WELFARE DEMOCRATS!!

In advance of the president’s new pro-immigrant announcement set for Thursday night, ICE is readying its strategy for next year when over 100,000 illegals are expected to flood over the U.S.-Mexico border.

And boy are the Democrats happy about it! Giddy, almost.

“These facilities help ensure timely and effective removals that comply with our legal and international obligations, while deterring others from taking the dangerous journey and illegally crossing into the United States,” he said.

BWAH HA HA HA! HA HA HA!HA HA HA!HA HA HA!HA HA HA!HA HA HA!HA HA HA!HA HA HA!HA HA HA!HA HA HA!HA HA HA!HA HA HA!HA HA HA!HA HA HA!HA HA HA!HA HA HA!HA HA HA!HA HA HA!HA HA HA!HA HA HA!HA HA HA!HA HA HA!HA HA HA!HA HA HA!HA HA HA!HA HA HA!HA HA HA!HA HA HA!HA HA HA!HA HA HA!HA HA HA!HA HA HA!HA HA HA!HA HA HA!HA HA HA!HA HA HA!HA HA HA!HA HA HA!HA HA HA!HA HA HA!HA HA HA!HA HA HA!

When Dilley opens in December, it will have 480 beds, but “ultimately” will hold 2,400, said ICE. It will be among the nation’s largest. The town’s motto is, “A slice of the good life.”

‘Nuff Said. :)

Post Pardum Amnesty

‘We’re going to offer the following deal,’  (We, kimosabi??) he said: ‘If you’ve been in America for more than five years; if you have children who are American citizens or legal residents; if you register, pass a criminal background check, and you’re willing to pay your fair share of taxes – you’ll be able to apply to stay in this country temporarily, without fear of deportation.’

‘You can come out of the shadows and get right with the law.’ 

The fact that you broke the law to get to this point is irrelevant to our Imperial Majesty. The fact that you and a whole lot of other minorities will vote Democrat is the point.

The King has spoken!

Now he wants to watch the angry fire ants (Republicans) run around get all mad at him.

He doesn’t care. “Pass a Bill” he taunts.

So they pass a bill, he vetoes it as “too extreme”.

Wow! no one saw that coming! :)

His Royal Highness is about it all. The Most Arrogant Man in The World is Happy.

Now comes that annoying tiny verbiage at the bottom of the commercial that no one can read:

‘This deal does not apply to anyone who has come to this country recently. It does not apply to anyone who might come to America illegally in the future. It does not grant citizenship, or the right to stay here permanently, or offer the same benefits that citizens receive – only Congress can do that.’

But he doesn’t mean it. You know he doesn’t mean it. His actions show he doesn’t mean it. Load up and head North to The Promised Land!!

‘All we’re saying is we’re not going to deport you.’

So if you come here illegally after this speech we won’t grant you amnesty (until the next time) but we won’t deport you, so you can stay until the next time.

Orwellian doubletalk.

Come one, Come all. The Democrat Circus is now open for business.

The immigration debate, he (Obama) said, is ‘about who we are as a country, and who we want to be for future generations.’

That would be a third world Socialist Banana Republic run by a succession of “democratically elected” Democrat rulers who can and will do anything they want, when they want, because they want and you can’t stop them, peasant!

Welcome to The DisUnited Sates of Northern Cuba! A Future where the Democrats are unstoppable and can do anything they want.

That’s the future THEY want.

Democracy is messy and they don’t get everything they want. Autocracy is so much simpler. Everyone just does as they are told or else.

FREEDOM IS SLAVERY.

So All Hail King Obama The First!

Or Else!

Anything else is just “extremism” (or “racism”) and you wouldn’t want to be one of THOSE now would you!? :)

Amnesty Boss

Today, our wondrous and benevolent King will bestow Amnesty upon a group of his loyal subjects.

The fact that they are ILLEGAL aliens has nothing to do with it.

The fact that he really doesn’t have the power, doesn’t matter either.

It’s a means to an end.

He wants, what he wants, when he wants it and because he he wants it! He is King is he not!! :)

The Agenda is The Agenda.

“Well, I think it is important to remind everybody that, as I said I think previously, and I’m not a king,” Obama said on Jan. 31, 2013, in an interview on immigration with Univision. “I’m the head of the executive branch of government. I’m required to follow the law.”

Funny how he has to remind us. No other President has had to “remind us”. :)

But then again, no President, even the hated George W Bush or Ronald Reagan (by the Left that is) would have to “remind us”.

Then nearly 2 years later, he does just that. :)

But you aren’t suppose to notice or care. The Ministry of Truth has tried to see to that.

He is The King.

How can you tell?

He ain’t got shit all over him!

(Thanks to Monty Python) :)

After all that time insisting he had no intentions or powers to change the law, he now insists he does have those powers.

What’s eerie is that Obama says it with such conviction, with the same icy tone that emperors employ in the movies just before they crucify the senators.

Now you may call him king, emperor, master of all he surveys, or one of dozens of terms for absolute ruler, like malik (Morocco) or shah (Persia), wang (China), anax (Macedonia), autokrator (Byzantium) and on and on.

But in Chicago, we have two names for those who impose their rule by force and power.

Boss is one. And Mayor is another.

And in this business of imposing will, Obama isn’t acting as the president of a republic who looks to the Constitution to reign in the impulses and ambitions of imperfect human leaders.

Instead, he’s acting like the Mayor of America, or, lest there be any confusion, the Boss of America.

Boss Obama? Dig it.

It’s the Chicago Way or The Highway….

“Everybody agrees that our immigration system is broken,” the president said in a message Wednesday. “Unfortunately, Washington has allowed it to fester far too long.”

Early in his administration, with Democratic majorities in both the House and the Senate, Obama could have pushed through changes in immigration law.

But he didn’t.

And now, after a stunning and complete defeat in the November midterm elections, in which his policies were repudiated and Democrats lost control of the Senate and more ground in the House, he’s willing to stuff this policy down the nation’s throat?

This is not the time for brinkmanship, not with Putin on the prowl and Iran moving toward nuclear weapons and ISIS lopping off American heads.

I suppose Obama can unleash his biscuit eaters to blame all immigration woes on conservatives. But all the demagoguery can’t change this, and all the race cards in all the race card decks in all of American politics can’t change it.

It is a wrongheaded approach, especially since the president has stated for years that he couldn’t act alone.

Should immigration be “fixed,” as the president now so urgently demands?

Yes. But not by edict of a Boss. It should be hammered out, loudly, vigorously, painfully, but not by executive fiat.

If this were so vitally important, why didn’t he loudly demand that Democratic candidates stand with him on the issue before the November elections? Because he’s no fool.

What’s worrisome is this: Imagine some future president, say someone as far to the right as Obama is to the left, who decides our tax laws are broken.

And what if that future president — someone who wants to shrink government in the name of liberty — issues an order not to collect the income tax?

Then what?

As the son of immigrants, I believe in releasing the drive, passion and dynamism of immigrants, especially those who yearn to be American in spirit, and not merely in benefit.

My father fought the Italians, then the Germans, then the communists and came over on the boat. His first job here was as a dishwasher. He built a small business and educated his sons, and we heard this president tell small business owners, “You didn’t build that.”

Other immigrant families have similar stories of sacrifice. We all fought hard to get here, some from overseas, some from south of the border.

And once here, many of us fought even harder to become Americans, because we didn’t want to be ruled by some boss back home.

What keeps the bosses at bay isn’t the ever-changing whims of politicians.

What keeps them at bay is the adherence to the Constitution, which all presidents swear to “preserve, protect and defend.” (John Kass)

It wasn’t written to protect the boss.

It was written to protect you.

But the Agenda is The Agenda and The Boss/Emperor/King says so.

It’s Good to be The King!

We Did Good!

Another edition of “What you are dealing with” when you encounter Leftists.

Today’s contestant is the newly re-elected Minority Leader and the 2nd most delusional person on the planet, Nancy Pelosi on the election just passed:

Well, we did have 25 seats in play and we’ve won 13 or 14 of them. We’ve won a majority of those seats. We lost seven freshmen and we lost three – [Tim] Bishop, [Nick] Rahall and [John] Barrow. Fabulous people who won in tough districts over and over again. But remember what I said then, it’s like the Olympics, it’s a little bit on one side, it’ll be a fraction of a second, fraction of an inch. That’s how it came down. Of that 25, I think it’s 14 of them that we have won. There’s one that it’s a loss for us, but it wasn’t an incumbent. It was Bruce Braley’s seat. So that’s another seat. But it wasn’t an incumbent, it was just that he didn’t win his own district. But in terms of people who are not coming back, it’s nine, no 10. It’s 10. It’s the three and then seven. Now, we’ll see what happens. They won 10, we won about 14 of them. . . . Of course, no one likes to see their colleagues leave and you don’t want to lose, but of those 25 races, we won 14 and lost 10. (WP)

Now isn’t that one of the greatest examples of Orwellian self-delusion (or just attempted manipulation of the truth) since “If you like your Health Plan…”

Orwell on The Ministry of Truth: Its purpose is to rewrite history and change the facts to fit Party doctrine for propaganda effect. For example, if Big Brother makes a prediction that turns out to be wrong, the employees of the Ministry of Truth go back and rewrite the prediction so that any prediction Big Brother previously made is accurate. This is the “how” of the Ministry of Truth’s existence. Within the novel Orwell elaborates that the deeper reason for its existence is to maintain the illusion that the Party is absolute. It cannot ever seem to change its mind for that would imply weakness and to maintain power the Party must seem eternally right and strong.

So how you do approach that kind of bat-sh*t delusion “in a bi-partisan way”? :)

She pines for the good old days 8 years ago when The Democrats won both houses of Congress and made her the 3rd most powerful person in America. Ah, the good ol’ days!

And if they just stay the course  and stay strong and project confidenmce they can have it all back in 2016! :)

“I’m the one that brought everyone to the party by winning the House in the first place,” (WP) Pelosi said in an interview.

Acknowledging that reality is critically important for congressional Democrats. And they are trillion miles and counting from that.

So how are going to be “bi-partisan” with this lot? :)

Arrogance

2004: Obama at DNC Convention–

“Now even as we speak, there are those who are preparing to divide us, the spin masters and negative ad peddlers who embrace the politics of anything goes.

“Well, I say to them tonight, there’s not a liberal America and a conservative America; there’s the United States of America.

“There’s not a black America and white America and Latino America and Asian America; there’s the United States of America.”

Flash forward….

The White House forged ahead Monday with yet another piece of its climate change agenda and bragged that Republicans are powerless to stop it.

The Agenda is The Agenda. The F*ck you, I’m the King Presidency continues unabated.

A presidential task force unveiled a report on how communities across the country can prepare for the effects of global warming. In all, the recommendations on “climate preparedness and resilience” could cost the federal government more than $100 billion to protect drinking water supplies, shore up coastlines against rising sea levels and take other preventive measures.

The recommendations and subsequent expenses are just two pieces of an ever-expanding slate of global-warming that is sure to come under the microscope when Republicans assume control of the Senate in January.

But legal analysts say the Republicans have little ammunition to fight back, short of shutting down the federal government to stop Environmental Protection Agency funding.

Which the Liberal Media will nuke them for.

White House officials, keenly aware of the executive power Mr. Obama holds on the issue of climate change, openly mocked incoming Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and his Republican colleagues.

“I believe the president will complete actions. It is a top priority of his and I don’t believe they can stop us,” White House counselor John Podesta told reporters on a conference call Monday. “Not withstanding Sen. McConnell making this a top priority to leave the status quo, to leave the air dirtier.”

Talking Points Alert!

White House officials on Monday also detailed some the expenses associated with the task force recommendations, including $88 billion for North Atlantic states to protect against rising sea levels, $6 billion for Midwestern states to combat rising temperatures and $40 billion to improve California’s drinking water systems.

The report comes on the heels of other recent steps, including Mr. Obama’s greenhouse gas emissions deal with China. Under that agreement, the U.S. pledged to cut its emissions by at least 26 percent by 2025, while China merely said it will cap emissions no later than 2030.

And China is laughing at the idiot who wants to cut his head off. Go ahead, the Chinese won’t stop you. They also won’t abide by any agreement, just like Obama doesn’t abide anything that isn’t on his Agenda other. Sucker!

The Agenda is The Agenda!

To meet that goal, the administration is relying on its unprecedented restrictions on power plant pollution — regulations that have led to accusations of a “war on coal” — and new auto fuel-efficiency standards, among other steps.

That will kill jobs, hurt the poor and the middle class, but hey it’s for your own good and besides will blame the victim (coal and fossil fuels) for it!!

Mr. Obama also is seeking $3 billion in taxpayer money to go toward a global climate fund aimed at helping developing nations boost their infrastructure.

Republicans appear ready to fight the president’s climate change agenda tooth and nail. After the GOP captured the Senate, Mr. McConnell, Kentucky Republican, said reining in the EPA would be a “top priority.”

He reiterated those comments over the weekend.

“They’ve been on a rampage all across the country. And I think coal is the most conspicuous example, but it’s happening in a lot of other areas and I think you’re going to see bipartisan support for trying to rein them in,” he told an audience in Frankfort, Kentucky.

The larger climate change debate is intertwined with the proposed Keystone XL oil pipeline, the approval of which could come up for a Senate vote as early as Tuesday. The House already has passed legislation deeming the pipeline approved.

The White House, however, has hinted the president will veto the bill.

Of course he will. The Agenda is The Agenda.

A similar fate could await other Republican efforts to push back on Mr. Obama’s climate change goals, according to Thomas Lorenzen, a lawyer who until last year served in the Justice Department’s Environmental and Natural Resources Division, overseeing legal challenges to EPA rules and regulations.

“It’s pretty hard to see how” Republicans can stop the president, Mr. Lorenzen said. “The problem is they don’t have a veto-proof majority.”

Have you caught onto the arrogance of the Left yet?

Mr. Lorenzen said Republicans could seek to cut funding to the EPA’s implementation of controversial rules, such the power plant restrictions. But going down such a path could escalate quickly for Republicans.

“How do you pass that in a way that it won’t be vetoed? What you end up with is a potential [government] shutdown battle,” Mr. Lorenzen said.

Lawsuits already have been filed challenging the EPA’s authority to limit emissions; more are likely to be filed as regulations on existing power plants are finalized.

That kind of legal action represents the best hope of stopping the administration, analysts say.

Meanwhile, the White House tried Monday to erase the partisan atmosphere around its host of environmental regulations.

“These issues really aren’t Republican or Democratic issues. They are issues that impact our citizens and our cities … It’s so important that we try, I think, to make this a nonpartisan issue,” said James Brainard, the Republican mayor of Carmel, Indiana, and a member of the task force that presented its recommendations on Monday.

So are you going to buy the BS, yet again and think you can work “bi-partisan” with Democrats?

Suckers!

A New Record

The federal government has started fiscal 2015 by setting yet another record for inflation-adjusted tax revenue, while running a monthly deficit of $121.7 billion, which works out to $1050.78 in deficit spending per household in the United States.

For each $1.00 the Treasury brought in during October as it set the new record for taxes collection for that month, the federal government spent $1.57.

This continues a trend seen through fiscal 2014, which ended on Sept. 30, when the federal government took in a record $3,020,809,000,000 in revenue but still ran a deficit of $483,336,000,000.

Federal spending was 334,432,000,000 for the month. That left a deficit of $121,713,000,000.

The federal government’s $121,713,000,000 deficit for the month equals $1,050.78 per each of those households.

And that’s just in October. Imagine if YOU ran a thousand dollar deficit every single month….

The biggest source of federal tax revenue during October was the individual income tax. During the month, taxpayers forked over $106,661,000,000 in these taxes to the Treasury. Taxpayers also handed over $73,581,000,000 in payroll taxes to cover Social Security, Medicare, and unemployment insurance. (CNS)

So you’re paying more than ever in taxes, but yet the Government Beast is gorging on it like it was an appetizer before the main meal.

So When in Debt Spend Even more!

Oh, but you can’t cut even a toenail on this beast without someone (usually a Leftist) howling that your killing kids, starving grandma or just a racist!

Meanwhile, those uber rich that have been the target of so much of the class warfare from the Left (which are ignoring them anyhow):

The wealthy now have a wealth gap of their own, as economic gains become more highly concentrated at the very top. As the top one-hundredth of the 1 percent pulls away from the rest of that group, the superrich are leaving the merely very rich behind. That has created two markets in the upper reaches of the economy: one for the haves and one for the have-mores. (NYT)

So it’s having no effect on them, only you, the poor middle class schlub who is lied to constantly and manipulated every day.

Congrats, you’re a vassal and the feudal Lords demand more an more of your money just because ita what they want and what you have been manipulated into demanding.

The Sheriff  will see you know, peasant.

The Seven Year Old Itch

Megan Mcardle:

Progressives have long said that Obama made a mistake in 2010 by admitting he took a “shellacking” in those midterms, and by retrenching rather than pushing harder and louder with a bold progressive message.  Those people now seem to have the ear of the president.  After naming some unobjectionable items he hoped to get through in the current session, such as fighting Ebola and curbing ISIS, he offered incoming Republicans the chance to work with him on a higher minimum wage and other longstanding Obama agenda items. 

 Most notably, of course, he said he would take executive action on immigration by year’s end unless Republicans passed a bill.  It’s certainly a bold negotiating tactic: You can do what I want, or I’ll go ahead and do what I want anyway.  This is how you “negotiate” with a seven-year old, not a Senate Majority Leader.

But Progressives think that anyone who disagrees with them must be a child (intellectually at least) because they are so vastly superior and so vastly elitist that anyone else MUST be a child in all aspects , but especially intellect, compared to them.

I’m not sure that isn’t what Obama thinks he’s doing, and I’m sure many of my left-leaning readers are chuckling right now at the comparison.  But Mitch McConnell is not a seven year old; he’s an adult, and he just won an election in which voters repudiated Obama and his party. (Temporarily, I am sure, but just the same: As someone once said, “Elections have consequences.”)  McConnell is not  the proverbial Tea Party extremist who won’t negotiate; he’s an establishment guy, known as a strategist and a tactician, not an ideologue (which is why the Tea Party isn’t that fond of him).  In short, he’s someone who can make deals.  Responding to McConnell’s rather gracious remarks about finding common goals by announcing that you know what the American public wants, and you’re going to give it to them no matter what their elected representatives say, seems curiously brash.  It might chill the atmosphere today when he sits down with congressional leaders.

 I wonder if Obama even knows how to negotiate with Republicans.

No, he doesn’t. Alinsky doesn’t do negotiations. They manipulate you. They lie, they play games, they don’t really give a crap what you think in reality.

  It’s not as if he has a long, distinguished record of passing legislation in a mixed environment.  His later years in the Illinois State Senate enjoyed a solid Democratic majority, and he jumped into the U.S. Senate at a propitious time. Soon after he arrived came the wave of 2006, when Democrats controlled both houses of congress by comfortable margins, and Senator Obama was far too junior to be negotiating with the White House.  Then came the financial crisis, and another wave, and Obama spent the first two years of his presidency in a happy situation where he could get things done without needing the support of the opposition.  He didn’t even negotiate with his own party; the Senate negotiated his health care bill, and Nancy Pelosi whipped it through the House.

 Post 2010, of course, he also hasn’t had much practice negotiating.  I’m not interested in another tedious argument about who did what to whom; whatever the cause and whoever’s fault it may be, the fact remains that the president has spent the last four years in a stalemate: Neither party can leave, and neither party can win.

 It’s a little late in the president’s career to learn the fine art of making deals with people who fundamentally disagree with you, but might be willing to work on whatever small goals you might share.  I suspect it feels more comfortable to go along with the strategy that has worked decently well over the last four years: hold your ground, complain about Republican intransigence, and hope that Republican legislators give you another opportunity to play long-suffering adult in the room.

I’m not sure that it’s wise to go back to the well.  Mitch McConnell has already announced that he is not going to allow shutdowns, impeachment, or other theatrics that will hurt his party in the eyes of swing voters, even if doing so would please the base.  Maybe he can’t make good on that promise.  But what happens if he does?  What happens if Obama signs his executive order, and voters decide that he’s the one who’s acting like a toddler?

 That might be a bit tough on Democrats, two years hence.  Oh, I don’t pretend to know how voters would react to an executive order that abruptly legalized the status of a million or so undocumented immigrants; any guess I made would mostly consist of projecting my own discomfort with the tactic onto an electorate that doesn’t look a whole lot like me.  But I submit that Democrats don’t know either.  They seem convinced that they can sell the legality, and that by 2016, grateful Latinos turn out to the polls, while the rest of the country will have forgotten it ever happened (except maybe some Tea Party extremists who would never vote for a Democrat anyway, and who cares about them?).

That is the plan. And The Ministry of Truth and Lies are the Disinformation Army, after all, “the american people are stupid” and won’t understand anyhow.

 That’s a plausible enough projection. On the other hand, Democrats also fervently believed that by 2012, at the very latest, they’d be running hard on Obamacare, before an adoring populace.  They thought the folks who opposed it would get used to it, eventually, come to love it.  That analysis was wildly wrong.

I don’t know that they cared after they got it passed. Now they just want to protect it at any cost.

 Which brings me to the other question raised by his press conference: Does Obama even care?

No. The end justified the means and it still does. After all, the Democrats were against “unilateral action” before they were for it. :)

  Obamacare cost his party dearly, but he got a historic legislative achievement.  Perhaps he’s willing to cost them again, in order to do immigration reform.  The people in office will mostly keep their seats anyway, because their caucus now consists mostly of the liberal stronghold seats that Democrats can’t really lose.  The next round of hopefuls might get crushed, and maybe Hillary Clinton won’t get to be president.  But there’s a decent argument that Obamacare and unilateral immigration reform will fortify the Democratic caucus of 2024.

If he get millions of new Democrat voters who will do his Party’s will regardless then he doesn’t have to care what you think he can just steamroll right over you in true Banana Republic fashion. What Democrat wouldn’t like that. :)

 This gamble seems foolhardy; a Republican president with a Republican Congress could do a lot of damage to Obamacare in four years — not full repeal, but change so sweeping that Obama would barely recognize his own program.  But as I remarked yesterday, I am by nature a cautious person.  Anyone who ran for president as a first-term junior senator definitionally has a greater appetite for risk than I do.

It’s good to be The King.

You’ve been Gruberized!

(Mission Impossible TV Theme): “Good morning Mr. Gruber.  Your mission, should you decide/choose to accept it is to lie your ass off about ObamaCare’s costs and to make sure the CBO gives us a favorable rating no matter what… As always, should you or any of your team be caught or have their lies revealed; the Ministry of Truth will disavow any knowledge of your actions. This tape will self destruct in 5/10 seconds. Good luck Jonathan.”

Political Cartoons by Nate Beeler

MSNBC: Part of the problem with the Jonathan Gruber “stupid” story is that it’s a shiny object for the political world to stare at for a while. It offers more heat than light. It’s a bouncing ball for political insiders to chase after, despite its relative insignificance.

Yeah, lying to your face is relatively insignificant to most people.

That’s how Liberals roll though. They lie, cheat, steal and manipulate you until the get what THEY want and when someone calls them on the carpet for it, they just blow you off because you’re just as meaningless to them.

You are a means to an end, that’s all.

ABC,NBC, and other have totally ignored it. It was too insignificant for them.

Speaking of Nancy Pelosi, she was asked this week about Gruber’s comments. “I don’t know who he is. He didn’t help write our bill,” she insisted. (Townhall)

And while it’s nearly impossible to slow down a snowball of spin while it’s still picking up speed, now would be an excellent time for everyone to pause, take a deep breath, and appreciate the degree to which this story isn’t quite what it appears to be. (MSNBC)

Must Like the “snowball of spin” on Benghazi just before the 2012 election! :) But gee whiz they sure got a lot of mileage out of their own spin. Remember, “If you like your Doctor….” :)

And if that doesn’t get you, they’ll just come back childishly with “well he worked on RomneyCare…” like that F*CKING matters that you “transparently” lied for partisan means to an end.

“Their reaction [to the Gruber story] shows that for all the talk of ‘governing,’ the incoming GOP Congress is going to treat the next two years like one long episode of the Rush Limbaugh show. The most urgent question will be not whether they can make some kind of positive change, or even whether they can make progress on their particular policy goals. The question is whether they can score points, win the morning, get the administration on the defensive. For that, you don’t have to get anything done; every day is a new opportunity to express your outrage, which is an end in itself.”

So it’s YOUR Fault! You’re the Partisan and this just proves it!! It’s Not them! They are the victim in this “relative insignificance” and they don’t intend to impede The Republican Congress and then blame them for “getting nothing done” at all.

…but it’s the law’s opponents that have spent the last several years misleading the public, creating baseless fears, and exploiting public confusion in order to help sabotage the American system for craven, partisan reasons.

Boo Hoo, stop with the partisanship, it hurts our feelings.

It’s Your Fault! You’re too partisan!

It’s all FOX News’ fault!

STUART VARNEY: What kind of play in the establishment media did the Gruber event get, Tim?

TIM GRAHAM: Almost nothing. This not just something they’ve been ignoring on ABC, CBS, and NBC. This is something you can’t find in your New York Times. This is something you can’t find in the pages of The Washington Post. This is something you’re going to have trouble finding on the Associated Press. They are all going to say this is some kind of right-wing story. Even Mika Brzezinski this morning on MSNBC said if this was on the other foot, let’s say this was the Iraq war, and an architect of the Iraq war said “Boy, we played the American people for suckers,” I think we all know what a massive story that would be.

VARNEY:  I am absolutely astonished. And insult from one of the architects of Obamacare. And elitist insult to we the people. Both ignored. Gloss over. Learn that it is perceived as untrustworthy. Nothing changes.

GRAHAM: It does not change. And the challenge for the new Republican majority is “How can we force this Obama-loving media to cover our issues?” (NB)

So shut up about it, and lets get back to “governing”, aka Rule by Presidential Fiat and “compromise”, you do as you’re told; Then everything will be fine. :)

Here’s me being “partisan” again…:)

End Justifies The Means

“This is exactly what conservatives have been saying for four years. What we’re hearing now is the true voice of liberal arrogance. [T]hey believe they know the right way—they have to lead the masses to the Promised Land, and they can only do it by deception. And that’s what he said openly…[they] lied about everything.”–Charles Krauthammer

Indeed they did. But in this instance, of course, the ends justified the means. It didn’t matter that the bill was so flawed it needed to be amended dozens of times. It didn’t matter that zero Congressional Democrats read the bill in its entirety before voting for it. It didn’t matter that a majority of Americans opposed the bill from the beginning. And of course, as Guy explained this morning, it didn’t matter that the law would never, ever work as promised:

Obamacare kicked millions of people off of their preferred insurance plans (with millions more to come), is signing up far fewer newly-insured consumers than projected, is hurting many more people than it’s helping, and is still expected by the government to leave roughly 30 million Americans without insurance.

And yet, as Krauthammer noted, critics of the law foresaw all of these problems years ago. All of them. They weren’t “fooled” or “tricked” by the law’s designers. So is it not, as Krauthammer said, somewhat of a scandal that it’s only now becoming clear that the law’s architects lied, misled, and parsed language to get their bill passed?

I’ll leave you with Ed Morrissey’s smart analysis: Namely, when Gruber dismisses “stupid Americans” for buying into—and ultimately supporting—the president’s healthcare reform law, he’s not talking about conservatives:

Let’s not forget that when Gruber calls voters stupid, it can’t be applied to those who opposed ObamaCare on the very same grounds as he states in these videos. Critics had made these arguments all along about the deceptive structure of the bill, and the lies being told to cover it up. Gruber’s talking about the Obama coalition in these remarks. (Townhall)

In less than a year Jonathan Gruber has gone from being cited [by Obama administration supporters] as an outstanding expert on health reform modeling to being downplayed as ‘a private citizen’ who misspoke,” notes Breitbart.com’s John Sexton.

Democrat attorney general in Court in regards to ObamaCare: “YouTube videos of Professor Jonathan Gruber, a private citizen at non-governmental meetings in January 2012, years after the ACA was enacted.”

This is what any Liberal does when caught with the Truth hanging out, they hang the truth sayer faster than the French killed peopled with a guillotine!

I/They “misspoke” is Progressive Liberal speak for the truth was said, now forget it. The Ministry of Truth and The Thought Police have ruled that this person is now a thought criminal and anyone who listens to them is a thought criminal and must be punished for their heresy against The Ministry and Big Brother.

Gruber went on MSNBC yesterday afternoon and tried to downplay his confession: “The comments in the video were made at an academic conference,” he said. “I was speaking off the cuff and I basically spoke inappropriately and I regret having made those comments.” But he did not disavow the substance of the comments—that is, he did not deny that the comments were truthful and reflected his own view.

Oh, and it’s the Republicans fault for obsessing about these little truth slips…

Gruber appeared on WGBH-TV, the PBS station in Boston, where he had this to say about the Halbig and King cases: “I think this comes to the master strategy of the Republican Party, which is to confuse people enough about the law so that they don’t understand the subsidies they’re getting are because of the law.” Well, he’s the expert on trying to confuse stupid voters.

Metaphor Alert
“A full week after the alleged ‘shellacking’ of President Obama and the Democrats, the country remains a ‘stucknation’ locked in a partisan standoff. . . . For several years now, the two parties have so amped up the partisan rhetoric that what used to be middle ground is nothing but scorched earth. It’s a machine fueled by animus, but raises hundreds of millions of dollars for the warring factions and keeps the nation from a necessary reconciliation that’s a prerequisite for moving forward. . . . Listening to this cacophony that passes for political discourse, an alien from outer space would come to the conclusion that Americans really can’t stand each other and just don’t want to defeat their opponents but annihilate them.”—Robert Hennelly, Salon.com, Nov. 12 (WSJ)

And that would be the means to an end and I’m sure the Democrats & The Ministry could justify it as The Republicans fault… Next up…Illegal Immigration & Global Warming… :)

The Agenda is The Agenda Motherf*cker!

And ain’t no damn election going to tell me otherwise!!

I am the King and I will do what I want, f*ck those peasants who voted against me I’m still The King!

The Obama Tsunami is coming, Motherf*ckers and you can’t stop me! F*ck you!

Political Cartoons by Nate Beeler

The Obama administration is set to roll out a series of climate and pollution measures that rivals any president’s environmental actions of the past quarter-century — a reality check for Republicans who think last week’s election gave them a mandate to end what they call the White House’s “War on Coal.”

Tied to court-ordered deadlines, legal mandates and international climate talks, the efforts scheduled for the next two months show that President Barack Obama is prepared to spend the remainder of his term unleashing sweeping executive actions to combat global warming. And incoming Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will have few options for stopping the onslaught, though Republicans may be able to slow pieces of it.

Now that’s real Bi-Partisanship. Working with Congress. Very Transparent also. :)

The coming rollout includes a Dec. 1 proposal by EPA to tighten limits on smog-causing ozone, which business groups say could be the costliest federal regulation of all time; a final rule Dec. 19 for clamping down on disposal of power plants’ toxic coal ash; the Jan. 1 start date for a long-debated rule prohibiting states from polluting the air of their downwind neighbors; and a Jan. 8 deadline for issuing a final rule restricting greenhouse gas emissions from future power plants. That last rule is a centerpiece of Obama’s most ambitious environmental effort, the big plan for combating climate change that he announced at Georgetown University in June 2013.

Obama announced yet another initiative Wednesday in Beijing, where he and Chinese President Xi Jinping jointly committed to targets for the two nations to curb their carbon emissions during the next two decades. And on top of all that, the administration is expected in the coming weeks to pledge millions of dollars — and possibly billions — to help poor countries deal with the effects of climate change.

And the poor deluded idiot doesn’t see that the #1 polluter on the planet is the Chinese Leader sitting next to him. The one who is laughing at his gullibility and naivete.

The pending EPA actions alone could amount to the most ambitious burst of environmental regulatory activity from Washington since President George H.W. Bush approved a crucial set of amendments to the Clean Air Act in 1990 — although Obama’s administration has already taken several big strides of its own, including limits on mercury pollution from power plants.

The administration was committed to its upcoming deadlines many months ago, in some cases under court order, after postponing a number of the actions until after the 2012 or 2014 elections. Now that Obama is almost out of time, they’re coming all at once.

On deck are even more climate actions that will stretch well into 2015. In June, EPA is due to put out a final version of its rule for cutting greenhouse gases from the nation’s existing power plants — the linchpin of Obama’s entire climate effort.

“In a world that was turned upside down on Election Day, two things are certain,” said Heather Zichal, who served as Obama’s top climate change adviser until 2013. “One: Corporate polluters and their allies in Congress will continue to fight against progress on the broader climate agenda. Two: The president is and will remain 100 percent committed to his climate action plan and he’ll fight to protect it.”

THE AGENDA IS THE AGENDA. But’s the other guy who’s the intransigent asshole! :)

The kicker for Republicans eager to stomp all over the president’s agenda: Congress has little immediate recourse, despite McConnell’s pledges to use “the spending process” to rein in EPA. With so much action rolling through the pipeline, Republicans will have to choose their battles carefully if they want to make headway while proving they can govern.

The Obama Tsunami is coming.

In an interview after Election Day, McConnell acknowledged that stopping Obama will be difficult, given the president’s veto power. McConnell has also promised a return to regular order, and Republicans probably won’t want to repeat last year’s government shutdown in hopes of forcing the president’s hand.

Transparency anyone? :)

“I think that actually preventing EPA from moving forward on the climate change regs will be a challenge,” said industry attorney Jeff Holmstead, who headed the agency’s air office during the George W. Bush administration.

If Congress tries to defang “high profile” regulations like those on carbon emissions, “we would expect the president to veto,” said Cal Dooley, a former Democratic member of Congress who heads the chemical industry’s trade association. “And I don’t expect that you’ll have a two-thirds vote in the Senate to override.”

So the Agenda is the Agenda, and it’s those nasty Republicans fault for being divisive and partisan!

Greens are counting on Obama to hold the line, especially on climate change.

“We are very confident that he will continue to take the common sense steps necessary to make this strong plan a reality,” League of Conservation Voters President Gene Karpinski said in an email. “That may not please the climate change deniers, but it is the right thing to do for our health, our economy, and our security.

F*CK YOU! We’re going to do it anyways! But that’s the Republicans fault and by extension the “stupid” voters who voted for them.

On the other hand, a GOP-led Congress could pass agency-specific spending bills with riders that undercut rules that seem less important to Obama. Some Republicans think he might swallow an attack on the ozone rule, for example.

Christine Todd Whitman, who served as George W. Bush’s first EPA administrator, said the Republicans’ new Senate leaders will at least try to hobble the agency.

“It’s going to get harder for EPA,” she said. “With Jim Inhofe as chair of the Environment and Public Works Committee, I think what they’re going to do is starve the agency.”

EPA is not the only agency pushing new rules, however. The Interior Department is also expected to release a long-delayed draft regulation in the spring that tightens limits on mountaintop-removal coal mining.

Say hello to your higher bills, courtesy of The King of all he surveys!

And Obama’s negotiators are working on plans for an international global warming agreement, set to be signed in Paris at the end of 2015, that would require the U.S. and other nations to slash greenhouse gas emissions for decades to come.

SUCKERS!

The U.S. is also expected to announce in the coming weeks how much money it will contribute to an international fund for helping poor countries deal with the effects of global warming. Developed countries have pledged to raise $100 billion a year from government and private sources for that cause by 2020, with some of the money going to the fund. But the prospect of handing billions of dollars in climate aid to the developing world is not going to win much applause from Republicans, who could block the money through the appropriations process.

And, of course, you can’t hate the poor right? :)

The U.S. will probably announce its pledge before or during a Nov. 20 meeting in Berlin.

“I think this will be one of the more challenging outcomes of the elections in terms of implementing the administration’s climate plan,” said Heather Coleman, climate change policy manager at Oxfam America.

The administration had previously postponed many of the upcoming regulatory actions, most notoriously with the surprise September 2011 decision to squelch EPA’s proposal to lower its smog limits. That decision blindsided both EPA leaders and environmentalists, and was widely regarded as an effort to defuse a major regulatory controversy before Obama had to run for reelection.

Similarly, EPA issued a proposed rule on coal ash in 2010, but sat on it for nearly four years until a federal court imposed a deadline for this December.

All the glare focusing on Obama’s big climate rules means that other items on his environmental agenda are getting less public attention than they once did. That could aid Republicans’ push to weaken some of regulations through negotiations with the White House and EPA, perhaps with deals to delay rules rather than repeal them outright. But that would depend on McConnell keeping the House from insisting on hardcore anti-EPA bills that would be surefire veto bait.

And The King and his Ministry of Truth are always looking for bait to use in the never-ending battle to make sure  you “Vote for me, the other guy’s an asshole!”.

The word from the Hill “is that McConnell really is interested in trying to show that Republicans can get things done, so I think they’re going to try to come up with some narrow bills where the President could sign,” Holmstead said.

Among other possibilities, Sen. John Hoeven (R-N.D.) hopes to bring up legislation that would shift authority away from EPA on regulating coal ash ponds. Given the agency’s previous reluctance to deal with coal ash at all, the White House might not fight him too hard.

Efforts to tighten ozone regulations are clearly not a top White House priority either, given Obama’s efforts to punt the rule in 2011. But defying the court deadline to finish the rule — “that’s where it’s going to take congressional action,” Dooley said. The manufacturing industry broadly opposes tightening the ozone standards, which it says could make permits more difficult and expensive to obtain.

Former Sen. Tim Wirth, a Democrat who served as the Clinton administration’s top international climate negotiator, thinks Obama will push through his main agenda regardless of what Republicans come up with.

“He’ll just do what he’s going to do anyway,” Wirth said. (Politico)

It’s good to be the king, especially with those partisan asshole Republicans around to blame for everything. :)

Political Transparency

“This bill was written in a tortured way to make sure CBO did not score the mandate as taxes. If CBO scored the mandate as taxes, the bill dies. Okay? So it’s written to do that.

“In terms of risk-rated subsidies, if you had a law which said healthy people are gonna pay in — made explicit that healthy people pay in and sick people get money, it would not have passed. Okay?

“Lack of transparency’s a huge political advantage. And basically, you know, call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically that was really, really critical to get anything to pass.

Jon Gabriel transcribing John Gruber, one of the ObamaCare architects.

Gruber concluded his confession with, “yeah there’s things I wish I could change, but I’d rather have this law than not.” (Ricochet)

Well, there’s a shock. ObamaCare was jury-rigged mess to accomplish an Agenda goal and Health Care reform for the people was not a real consideration.

The Agenda was the Agenda and everything else be damned.

Gee, I’ve only been saying that since this blog began in 2009. I’m shocked… :)

Now, will the Ministry of Truth tell you about this, of course not, why would they it’s not within their mandate to do so.

And the leftist minions, the food soldiers of The Ministry will be out in force proclaim their faith and hammering at nitpicks and ignoring anything that is a Thoughtcrime.

The Examiner: Doctors, nurses, politicians and everyday citizens are coming to grips with the reality that the debate on ObamaCare isn’t over, and neither is the discussion on the White House’s credibility.

As the November 2014 election nears, October Obamacare horror stories creep and radiate wicked truths: throughout the population, even those who originally supported the idea of the Affordable Care Act, people are discovering the malicious plan, as hatched, is not doing what it was disguised to do.Although the cast of usual characters, like the sympathetic mainstream media, congressional leadership and all the president’s men and women have done everything they can to keep their fingers in the dike, the damn thing is leaking profusely.

America was delivered a masqueraded evil that is fast driving up costs and eroding the quality of healthcare.

Just last month, the largest insurance company with the lowest rates and most sign-ups (59 %) for the Obamacare health exchange in Minnesota, PreferredOne Health Insurance, announced they are pulling out because the government health plan is “not sustainable” in 2015. Steve Peterson, a spokesman, said that offering coverage through this system is “not administratively and financially sustainable going forward.”

“PreferredOne has now discovered that Obamacare is broken and can’t possibly work,” the president of Citizens’ Council for Health Freedom (CCHF) Twila Brase stated. “Even with the $25 billion reinsurance scheme to redistribute dollars between health plans that was put in place to keep premium prices low until enrollment for 2017, conveniently after the 2016 Presidential election.”

“This is undoubtedly what happens when we depend on the government for health care coverage—we lose it,” said Brase. “Those who enrolled through PreferredOne must either change their Obamacare coverage in 2015 or stay with PreferredOne and lose any subsidies.”

“Minnesotans are now faced with fewer healthcare choices, some will lose their plans for a second time, and families will be hurt,” state Sen. Michelle Benson (R) said.

One of the most embarrassing events was practically covered up in the media when, in an October 2013 speech, Obama mentioned Jessica Sanford, the Washington state single mother who signed up for Obamacare for just $169 a month. Oops. Not true. Another Obama Boo-Boo. She soon discovered the lowest she was being forced to pay was $324 per month. She dropped out quickly and now faces a fine on his tax returns for not having insurance.

Physicians, hospitals and health care providers aren’t the only ones confused by Obamacare. On July 22, 2014 the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit ruled the feds should not be providing subsidies for health insurance premiums in states that use Healthcare.gov. On that same day, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit upheld the existing practice of permitting premium subsidies for those purchasing health insurance in either the federal marketplace or a state exchange.

Other demons are creeping out of the laws, faux-laws and mandates.

Obamacare signups can’t always keep their doctors if they want to. The 8 million people who enrolled, as President Obama claimed last spring, is not anywhere near that figure according to Marilyn Tavenner, administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Even Doug Holtz-Eakin, former Congressional Budget Office director stated signing up doesn’t mean you are enrolled because “you have to sign up and pay on a regular basis to really be enrolled.”

Perhaps the Barack Obama staff didn’t give him the bad news or Obamacare website and system problems could be to blame, his 8 million enrollment number is simply not true. Numerous duplicate enrollments are being discovered daily as a new regime continue with repairs to the plagued Healthcare.gov website. Insurance companies in many states are reporting large percentages of people dropping out of the coverage by not paying premiums. In Florida it’s been more than 20 percent. Some companies are reporting over 50 percent.

Through the IRS and other institutions directed by the White House, the federal government is charging a record number of fines to over 2,600 hospitals for readmitting too many of Medicare patients. An analysis by Kaiser Heath indicates that so far, in 29 states, the government is draining an overwhelming amount money, $428 million, from a majority of hospitals because their patients returned within a month of treatment, an Obamacare law.

A Kaiser Family Foundation poll recently reported that 52 percent of women view the Affordable Care Act (ACA) unfavorably, the highest disapproval rate from women ever. This is especially notable since women make about 80 percent of health care choices in American families.

Women have discovered that Obama’s promise that the plan would “lower premiums by up to $2,500 for a typical family per year,” was nothing but a masked fabrication of deceit.
Rather than reducing health care costs as promised, health insurance premiums have gone up under Obamacare. “Increases are largely due to changes under the ACA,” found a June 2014 Morgan Stanley study, with women facing extremely high premium increases that range from 23 percent to 237 percent.

So here’s a Present from your Transparent architect: http://www.amazon.com/Health-Care-Reform-Necessary-Works/dp/0809053977#reader_0809053977

The Unbearable Barackness of Being

Shawn Mitchell: What does a prophet do when the people reject his message? On November 5th, Barack Obama took the pulpit and grimly delivered the same sermon he has since in the beginning, daring the infidels to defy him. It’s the only scripture he knows; he has no other verses to rely on.

THE AGENDA IS THE AGENDA!

Maybe Obama is for real in his own mind: He believed he was the One to heal the nations, lower the oceans, erase divisions between black and white, red and blue, and deliver a harmonious, transformed America. He famously told Congressional Democrats they’d have a stronger hand in political clashes, because “Now you have me.”

Obama’s revolutionary promises were doomed from the start because of us and because of him. For our part, political differences exist because Americans’ beliefs, values, and interests differ. No soothing speech can erase differences of view and purpose among millions of Americans. In any society where the people are heard, those differences manifest as political disagreement.

Even if there were a path toward a more harmonious nation, Obama was exactly the wrong man to blaze it. Most Americans have recognized the defining trait of Barack Obama: He is opposite of everything he vows.

The candidate said “no red states, no blue states, only United States.” Then, the president declared to minority Republicans offering input into the Stimulus–the biggest government expenditure in history–“Elections have consequences. I won.”

Candidate Obama promised to comb through the Federal budget line by line and eliminate outdated, ineffective programs. President Obama conspired with Harry Reid to refuse to pass budgets for four years, instead rolling over earlier budgets with a Continuing Resolution. This not only insulated existing programs, it locked in TAARP, Bush’s extraordinary Bailout Bill, intended as a one time desperation measure, into a permanent 20% structural increase of the federal budget.

The candidate promised the most transparent administration in history. The president gave us the most secretive, vindictive administration in history. Candidate Obama boasted of being a law instructor who respects the Constitution. President Obama has suffered an unprecedented string of unanimous rebukes by the Supreme Court for overreach in governing.

The candidate promised his health care bill would be drafted and negotiated on CSPAN. The president huddled with a few key players behind closed doors. Nancy Pelosi was famously giddy Americans had no idea what is in the bill.

In a cynical display for the ages, the candidate who promised hope and change, an end to politics as we know it, won reelection only with the gale force help of a media that assassinated his opponent with divisive and distractionary themes.

The devastating list is much longer. Obamais the most pervasive, incessant liar ever to occupy the Oval Office. He never did a thing that would “bring Americans together.” He consolidated power, centralized his rule, tightly controlled administration communications, and slandered and persecuted domestic critics.

Observant conservatives noted this poison almost immediately. Observant liberals didn’t care; they thrilled to their champion’s successes. Skeptical but trusting independents who consumed national news didn’t get anything like accountability from their president or the media.

For the first 5 years of this administration, consumers of old media saw only the Obama portrayed by the Big Pens and Big Hairs. He was Colossus between the columns, “a kind of god,” the bestower of “thrills up the leg,” the wearer of “perfectly creased slacks.”

Obama was weightless to the effects of missteps and scandals that would have knocked other presidents low. This isn’t because his skills were so superior but because his sins were so protected. If the media doesn’t chase Fast and Furious, green crony bankruptcies, foreign policy missteps, Benghazi failures, or IRS abuses, then the public won’t care and the president won’t suffer.It’s all just a tree falling in the political forest.

It would be one thing if the Authoritarian Transformer had made the trains run on time. But we came to learn, he’s not only abusive–he’s incompetent.

Intransigent, more like. He just doesn’t really care if you don’t like his ultimate plan. He has a pen, remember… :)

The tide began to turn when the president’s overreach and haplessness hit Americans in their homes where the media could not ignore or hide. Obamacare’s delayed website didn’t work. Insurance plans got cancelled by the millions, exposing the president’s deliberate lies. The Arab Spring quickly became the Middle East inferno. Syria laughed at Obama’s warnings and red lines, as did the mad scientists in Iran. Putin laughed, assaulted sovereign nations, and ate border regions for lunch.

These failures were too obvious and too big to be deflected. They couldn’t be dismissed with smooth denials read from the teleprompter, and nodding by a compliant press. Americans sensed they were being governed by the JV team, aided and abetted by the TV team. Opinion began to turn, then faster and harder until election day. The reversals were historic, the president repudiated.

What does a Transforming Earth Whisper do when the people stop listening? Barack Obama pretends to hear the mandate of the two thirds of eligible Americans who didn’t vote. With straight face and steely eyes, he announced a steady course. He welcomes Republican cooperation to get things done—his things.

Obama either believes himself and can’t fathom he’s been rejected, or he knows and will defy and bull ahead with every weapon at his disposal. This will get interesting.

Rational?

“Our party has a problem,” Wasserman Schultz said in a video announcing the project. “We know we’re right on the issues. The American people believe in the causes we’re fighting for. But the electoral success we have when our presidential nominee is able to make a case to the country as a whole, doesn’t translate in other elections. That’s why we lost in 2010, and it’s why we lost on Tuesday.” (AP)

I found this on Facebook:

2014 TALKING POINTSSo do you still think The Left has any rational thought process and that they can be negotiated with?

“It’s apparent that there are increasingly two separate electorates: a midterm electorate and a presidential electorate. We win one and we don’t seem to be able to win the other,” said Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who leads the Democratic National Committee, in an interview Saturday. “That is a fundamental dynamic that we have to change.” (AP)

Thus, we need those 12-20 million illegal alien Democrat voters to crush any opposition to our Sanctified Cause. :)

Still think there are any rational thoughts on the Left, left?

PHOENIX (AP) – A federal judge has struck down Arizona’s 2005 immigrant smuggling law on the grounds that it’s trumped by federal statutes.

Federal Supremacy wins again. All Hail The King! All Hail Big Brother!

Or Else!

The ruling Friday by U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton marked the latest in a string of restrictions placed by the courts on Arizona’s effort to get local police to confront illegal immigration.

Bolton ruled the state law deprives federal authorities of their exclusive right to prosecute smuggling crimes.

Mind you, she’s a massive Leftist…

Arizona’s smuggling law was passed as lawmakers responded to voter frustration over the state’s position as the nation’s then-busiest immigrant smuggling hub.

The smuggling law had been used frequently in Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s trademark immigration efforts, though the courts have curbed his immigration powers over the 17 last months.

If We, in Washington, want to ignore the Law, you have no rights! Just suck it up and live with it. Up Yours!

FUCK THE TENTH AMENDMENT!

Now that’s a Federal Government here to help you and protect you (as long as you’re not American and not white)… :)

Liberal Grief

2009: President Obama listened to Republican gripes about his stimulus package during a meeting with congressional leaders Friday morning – but he also left no doubt about who’s in charge of these negotiations. “I won,” Obama noted matter-of-factly, according to sources familiar with the conversation. (HuffPo)

Political Cartoons by Eric Allie


The Five Stages of Democratic Grief

Tuesday night clearly revealed the Five Stages of Democratic Grief, played out in vivid beauty on MSNBC and the rest of the networks. If you haven’t watched the supercut of the MSNBC panel on election night, you should. Since then, we’ve been watching the stages of political grief play out with our friends across the aisle.

Denial: “What wave? There’s no wave. There is no way the Republicans will increase their House majority or take the Senate. Barack Obama may have lost a few of the idiot red-state nutjobs, but he’s still remarkably popular. He killed Bin Laden! He restored America’s standing in the world! He saved Detroit! People love Obamacare. They love it. It’s so popular that every Democrat campaigned to preserve it in its current form. With Ferguson, Trayvon, immigration reform and Kim Kardashian’s endorsements, our voters are charging to the polls in record numbers. Did you see Lena Dunham’s “Turn Out for What” video? The kids love her. Bill and Hillary both went in to close these campaigns, and they’re the most popular people in America. Besides, all Republicans are tone-deaf Todd Akins and their campaign technology consists of clipboards and fax machines. We’ve got this.”

Anger: “Well, obviously, these early losses are about racism. And stupidity. I mean, science proves it. Republicans are dumber than Democrats because Neil Degrasse Tyson says so. How could anyone not understand that a rising stock market and our great economic picture is the sole doing of Barack Obama? Republicans are so stupid it hurts. Someone has to be the adult in the room, and it’s Barack Obama. Harry Reid isn’t a pinched, angry little dwarf! He’s a visionary leader! And those Koch Brothers! My God, can you imagine a more pernicious embodiment of pure evil? Those polls were skewed. The Kochotopus got to them. Clearly. Also, did I mention how much of a role racism played? It was so obvious! They weren’t voting for Joni Ernst or Cory Gardner, they were voting against the first black President.”

Bargaining: “Maybe we can still win. If we run the table tonight, we can still pull this thing off, right? Sure, Obama isn’t as popular as he was, but he can get some people turned up. I mean, we’re going to pick up a couple seats, right? Charlie Crist is really good, and so is Wendy Davis. Please, can at least one Democrat governor win? Maybe it’s better if we have a smaller, more progressive caucus in the Senate. I’ll take 30 Bernie Sanders over one Mary Landrieu. Besides, a lot of these ‘Democrats’ betrayed Barack by not campaigning with him. Even if it’s a tie in the Senate, we’ll have Biden. Everyone adores Biden, that lovable rogue! He’s looking good, too. Harry Reid is still really persuasive, and even in the minority he can use the filibuster to…oh, wait…”

Depression: “This is the end of the grand liberal experiment. Cancel the midterms. We’re doomed. The fascists won. Jesus take the wheel, because soon Lena Dunham will be in an internment breeding camp, the Klan will be marching in the streets, and 30-foot statues of the Koch Brothers will be mandatory on every corner. Even Hillary can’t save us. I’m so down, not even seven minutes of watching John Oliver totally destroy The TeaThuglican Takeover can get me off the couch. Ready for Hillary? Colbert’s last show is coming soon, and then where will I get my news? I’m ready to sleep for another 20 hours, eat a bucket of soy gelato and grande Xanax-wheatgrass smoothie. All those DCCC emails were right; we are doomed.

Now, you might be expecting me to wrap up with a semi-clever riff on the “Acceptance” phase of political grief. Not so much. Democrats will never accept that they lost the Senate. They’re already pre-gaming their strategy to disrupt the Senate and paralyze our coming majority. The President’s remarkably dense and stubborn press conference yesterday tells you everything you need to know; they’re not going to compromise. They’re going to fight us until the last dog dies.

Thus far, Speaker Boehner and Majority Leader-elect McConnell have been pitch perfect in their tone. Firm, calm, polite. Democrats and the media are screaming for us to roll over and “get things done for the country,” by which they mean, “Pass Obama’s agenda without modification, objection, or scrutiny.”

This is why I’m worried. The Senate Comity Virus effects Republican rubes in bumbling, just-off-the-pumpkin-truck way. Reid, Schumer, et al., will go to the softer Republicans infected with the Senate Comity Virus (symptoms many include seeking media approval, lobbyist-driven bipartisan compromise, and death) and oil them up. “We need to work together.” “This is for the country.” “We need to govern.” And like suckers, a lot of Members will take that bait.

Here’s a piece of advice for the incoming Senate and House Republicans: Emulate McConnell from Wednesday. Smile politely at the camera, and talk about bipartisan comity. Then, shove the knife in to the hilt. The game D.C.’s Democrat-media-lobbyist complex is playing is to trick you into rolling over in the name of compromise and “getting stuff done” with the premise that if you play nicely, the voters will reward you in 2016. You’d be a fool to take that bait. Twenty-eight Democrats are gone from the Senate because they “got it done” with Obamacare. Despite dire predictions that if we didn’t do an immigration bill in 2013 Hispanics would destroy us at the polls, here we are. Play your game, not theirs.

Harry Reid and the Democrats dealt in such bad faith for so long, anyone who makes a deal with Reid in the minority is a damned fool. Display for bipartisan cooperation in the same spirit Reid did: in absolutely no way whatsoever. He was brutal in his exercise of the power and prerogatives of the Majority Leader, and Mitch McConnell must do the same.

After praising Reid’s hardball, screw-the-GOP tactics, the media, as they always do when we’re in power, suddenly can’t get enough of bipartisan comity and cooperation. Expect a flood of stories about how Republicans are doomed (doomed, I tell you!) if they don’t pass everything Obama wants and split the baby down the middle with Reid at every turn. It’s a lie, and only a sucker would believe it.

The next two years of Obama are consequential, and dangerous. Keep a level tone, a calm affect, and never, ever let them win. Not once. Not ever. Do we want to be strong going into 2016? Then show strength. Control the agenda, or Barack Obama will. Victory matters, and we have one in hand. Before today’s White House meeting, I would have counseled Boehner and McConnell to say two words to the President: “We won.”

Nailed it.

Teachable Moment

Charles Krauthammer: Memo to the Republicans. You had a great night on Tuesday. But remember: You didn’t win it. The Democrats lost it.

This is not to say that you didn’t show discipline in making the election a referendum on six years of Barack Obama. You exercised adult supervision over the choice of candidates. You didn’t allow yourself to go down the byways of gender and other identity politics.

It showed: A gain of probably nine Senate seats, the largest Republican House majority in more than 80 years, and astonishing gubernatorial victories, including Massachusetts, Maryland and Illinois, the bluest of the blue, giving lie to the Democrats’ excuse that they lost because the game was played on Republican turf.

So don’t lose it now and go crazy. So restraint and discipline.

The defeat — “a massacre,” the Economist called it — marks the final collapse of Obamaism, a species of left liberalism so intrusive, so incompetently executed and ultimately so unpopular that it will be seen as a parenthesis in American political history.

If you show the way out of the Darkness.

Notwithstanding Obama’s awkward denials at his next-day news conference, he himself defined the election when he insisted just last month that “these (i.e. his) policies are on the ballot — every single one of them.”

They were, and America spoke. But it was a negative judgment, not an endorsement of the GOP.

So you don’t have a Mandate, you have a teachable moment.

The prize for winning is nothing but the opportunity for Republicans to show that they can govern — the opportunity to seize the national agenda.

Five weeks ago, I suggested a series of initiatives that would be like the 1994 “Contract With America,” but this time post facto. It’s not rocket science. Mitch McConnell, the incoming Senate majority leader, and Speaker John Boehner are already at work producing such an agenda.

It needs to be urgent, determined and relentless. Say, a bill a week for the first 10 weeks. Start with obvious measures with significant Democratic support, like the Keystone XL pipeline.

Like fast-track trade negotiation authority that Harry Reid killed and that Obama, like all presidents, wants. Republicans should propose and pass it, thereby giving Obama a victory and demonstrating both bipartisanship and magnanimity (as well as economic good sense).

Then a simple, targeted bill to repatriate the $2 trillion of assets being held by U.S. corporations overseas, a bill to authorize and expedite the export of liquid natural gas and crude oil (the latter banned by an obsolete 1975 law) and a strong border security bill.

As for ObamaCare, a symbolic abolition that Obama will immediately veto is less important than multiple, rapid-fire measures to kill it with a thousand cuts. Repeal of the medical device tax. Repeal of the individual mandate. Repeal of the employer mandate. Repeal of the coverage mandate, thereby reinstating Obama’s broken promise that “If you like your health care plan, you can keep it.” And repeal the federal bailout for insurers on the ObamaCare exchanges.

If Obama issues vetoes, fine. Let the Democrats defend them for the next two years.

Then go big and go positive: a sweeping reform of the tax system, both corporate and individual, abolishing loopholes and lowering rates, like the historic Reagan-O’Neill 1986 reform or Obama’s own abandoned Simpson-Bowles commission.

And go large: Invite the other side into immediate negotiations with the aim of producing a tax bill by spring.

How will Obama react? My guess — with the petulance and denial he displayed in his postelection news conference. Moreover, he will try to regain control of the national agenda with executive amnesty for illegal immigrants.

Final memo to the GOP: That would be naked impeachment bait. Don’t take it. Use the power of the purse to defund it. Pledge immediate repeal if Republicans take the White House in 2017. Denounce it as both unconstitutional and bad policy.

But don’t let it overwhelm and overtake the GOP agenda. That’s exactly what Obama wants. It is his only way to regain the initiative.

Be Disciplined.

The 2014 election has given the GOP the rare opportunity to retroactively redeem its brand. The conventional perception, incessantly repeated by Democrats and the media, is that Washington dysfunction is the work of the Party of No. Expose the real agent of do-nothing. Show that with Harry Reid no longer able to consign House-passed legislation to oblivion, Congress can actually work.

Pass legislation. When Obama signs, you’ve shown seriousness and the ability to govern. When he vetoes, you’ve clarified the differences between party philosophies and prepared the ground for 2016.

Tuesday’s victory was big. But it did nothing more than level the playing field and give you a shot. Take it.

It’s a scalpel, not a hatchet.

YES YOU CAN! :)

The King’s Choice

Obama pledged to ‘do everything I can in my executive authority’ to take ‘whatever lawful actions that I can take that I believe will improve our immigration system.’

And he dared the GOP to see things his way.

Executive orders, he said, ‘will be replaced and supplanted by a bill from Congress.’

‘You send me a bill that I can sign and those executive actions go away.”

But he cautioned: ‘What I’m not gonna do is just wait.” (Daily Mail)

My way or the Highway. Same old, Same old.

Was there ever any doubt that a hardline ideologue would bend to the people’s (anyone’s) will beside the will of King Obama The First?

No.

It’s the King’s Choice: Do it his way or do what he wants! Your choice. :)

“I think it’s fair to say that I’ve shown a lot of patience and tried to work on a bipartisan basis as much as possible and will keep doing so,” Obama said. “I’ve consistently said that it is my profound preference and interest to see Congress act on a comprehensive immigration reform bill.”

“What we can’t do is just keep on waiting,” he added. “There’s a cost for waiting.”

His Wrath. His 20 million new Democrat voters!

Remember when acting “unilaterally” was considered a bad thing? :)

Talking & Acting Imperial as always, our King.

Former Obama White House Press Secretary Jay Carney, now a political commentator for CNN, casually admitted that, yes, his party uses race to convince minorities that Republicans seek to oppress them.

Before the midterm election, Carney said: “Republicans are going to pick up seats in the Senate and the House, and they may win control of the Senate. So (Democrats) need to mobilize their base voters, and that is especially true of minority voters.”

Carney also admitted that the use of the race card is cynical: “Equating support for stand-your-ground law … doesn’t mean you supported the action that took Trayvon Martin’s life. So that’s the kind of, you know, rough ad — similar to the one we saw from the Republican. I think we’ve come to expect that, and hopefully a lot of voters … kind of tune it out.”

Carney claims both sides use race to gin up their base. But when Republicans do it, he insists, they do so out of racism. Consider this exchange with Bill Kristol, the conservative publisher of the Weekly Standard. Carney claims that the Republicans’ push for voter ID is motivated by the racist Republican desire to suppress the black vote:

Kristol: I voted in Virginia last Saturday. Since I was going to be in New York next week, I voted early absentee in person, and I had to show my driver’s license. Do you think that’s really a problem?

Carney: You know what the statistics say. You know who is most affected by the requirements, essentially poll tax-type requirements.

Kristol: Poll tax? Showing an identification is like charging people a fine, a tax?

Carney: Bill, you know that the fraud isn’t substantial and real. You know it doesn’t have a significant impact, because it’s so minimal, on election results and you know what the motivation is behind it. You know it.

Kristol: I just totally disagree. But that’s OK.

Carney: No, you don’t.

So here we have two white guys — three counting host Jake Tapper — discussing black-white relations. White Democrat accuses white Republican of being racist against blacks. White Republican denies it. White Democrat says: Oh, yes, you are, and you can deny it all you want. But you are a bigot unless and until I say otherwise. White Republican meekly denies the charge. The subject is changed. Let’s move on.

Conservative commentator Ben Stein recently called out Obama and the Democrats on their vulgar use of the race card: “What the White House is doing is trying to racialize all politics, and they’re especially trying to tell the African-American voter that the GOP is against letting them have a chance at a good life in this economy. And that’s just a complete lie. … The President is the most racist president there has ever been in America. He is purposely trying to use race to divide Americans.” Memo to RNC Chair Reince Priebus: Stein has just shown how to counter the race card — with facts.

How pathetic is Obama’s use of it? When running for president in 2008 — and to prove he wasn’t at all like the Reverend Al Sharpton, Obama refused to even appear with the race-hustling flamethrower. Today, they are BFF’s.

Six years in, the Obama administration cannot brag about growth. This recovery is the nation’s worst in 80 years, arguably ever. Dems cannot talk about declining black poverty because the rate is about where it was when Obama took office. Black Inner-city teenage unemployment exceeds 50 percent in some cities.

A black 82-year-old grandmother, a lifelong Democrat, recently called C-SPAN to explain why this time she “voted straight Republican”: “I have noticed … what the Democratic Party has done to my people. Unemployment is high in the black community — we are double with unemployment — than it is anywhere else. … And I’m not talking about the people that need help — because with so many people getting help that doesn’t need help, it prevents the people that really need help from getting it. … I hear my people calling in all the time saying that every time you say something against the ideology of President Obama, that you’re doing it because he is black. We need to stop that foolishness. This man is destroying this country, and it’s what he intended to do. He said he was going to transform America, and that’s what he’s doing.”

More alarming for Democrats, it’s not just 82-year-old black grannies who are reconsidering their allegiance to the Party. Young black people, the “hope and change” voters who turned out in record numbers for Obama, have also been mugged by the reality of uncommonly high unemployment and underemployment. They see that government, even when led by a young, progressive, empathetic black President, will not solve their problems. Among black 18- to 29-year-olds, nearly one-third of them now self-describe as political “independents.”

After Tuesday’s election, Democrats better order some new race cards. The deck is getting thin. (Townhall)

It’s the black hole of Progressive Liberalism, they can never stop pulling it out.

They are addicted to it like a baby born on crack. It’s in their Genes.

That’s why they need the illegal aliens a voters so they don’t have to mess with all this messy democracy thing.

<> Sorry, Repeat your Message…

King Obama The First hear the voice of his vassals, and he doesn’t give a shit what they say:

ABC News Chief White House Correspondent Jon Karl reported that according to WH officials “the president will move forward with an executive order on immigration reform “no matter how big a shellacking Democrats get tonight” during ABC’s Election coverage on Tuesday.

Karl said “White House officials are saying that you can expect the president to set an aggressive, and defiant tone tomorrow. You’re not going to see any mea culpas, no big firings, no change in direction.”

I AM THE MOST ARROGANT MAN IN THE WORLD!

I AM KING!

YOU WILL DO AS I SAY!

He added “officials tell me the president is prepared to aggressively pursue his agenda using his power of executive authority, where he can’t work with Congress, and the big one is going to be on immigration reform. White House officials tell me that the president will move forward with an executive order on immigration reform no matter how big a shellacking Democrats get tonight.”

FOR I AM KING AND THE AGENDA IS THE AGENDA!!

Two-term incumbent Mark Pryor of Arkansas was the first Democrat to fall, defeated by freshman Rep. Tom Cotton. Sen. Mark Udall of Colorado was next, defeated by Rep. Cory Gardner. Sen. Kay Hagan also lost, in North Carolina, to Thom Tillis, the speaker of the state House.

Republicans also picked up seats in Iowa, West Virginia, South Dakota and Montana, all states where Democrats retired. They had needed a net gain of six seats to end a Democratic majority in place since 2006.

In the House, with dozens of races uncalled, Republicans had picked up 11 seats that had been in Democratic hands, and given up only one.

A net pickup of 13 would give them more seats in the House than at any time since 1946.

But naturally, the arrogant message from the left is: Said outgoing Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, a Democrat, ” The message from voters is clear: They want us to work together.”

Yeah, he was the king of bi-partisanship. :)

When we Democrats are in control we ALWAYS work with our opponents in a bi-partisan fashion!

This, of course, is the new message, that the Republicans as supposed to work with Democrats. The fact that the Democrats have all but ignored the Republicans for the last 6+ years is irrelevant to arrogant Left.

Now you’re supposed to kiss OUR butt, otherwise we’ll complain about YOUR BY-Partisanship, the very thing we HAVE been doing. :)

The GOP also piled up wins in Montana, South Dakota, Arkansas, West Virginia and North Carolina — all seats that had been in Democratic hands — to surpass their magic number of six net gains. With seats still to be decided in Virginia, Alaska and Louisiana — where there will be a runoff in December — the GOP currently has 52 seats in the Senate.

Boy, the Executive Orders are going to be a Blizzard in DC for the next two years as the King ignores Congress and The Liberal Media beat them up for “not being effective” so that they can lay down the Coronation of Queen Hillary The First.

The Daily Kos: Big lesson from today is that Republicans win big when seniors dominate the electorate. I’m sure that’s a winning long-term strategy.

And, of course, those Evil Republicans prevented Democrats from voting because of Voter ID…So they didn’t lose, it was stolen from them!

And this gem from MSNBC:

Still, Republicans have essentially refused to pass major legislative since taking the House in 2010, and, despite McConnell’s promises, the chances of getting anything significant accomplished are now even lower. That means pressing, national issues like immigration, climate change, the growing wage gap and infrastructure upgrades are set to remain on hold.

Instead, Obama will likely have to make frequent use of his veto pen in response to legislation passed by the GOP Congress. Whether that will include a repeal of Obamacare is uncertain, after few Republicans made the law a major campaign issue.

Yeah, the 300+ bills that Harry Reid sat on for years has no bearing on this “gridlock”.

Yeah, they got the message. :)

Cheat Day

Today is the day for the Democrats to bring out their dead, the illegal alien, the dog, the cat, the baby,the double-triple counted for the election.

Whoever and whatever they can drag to the polls and get past the politically correct pollster to win regardless.

It’s not like they believe in “fairness” in elections after all. :)

Today is the sacred day when the Democrat Cheating instinct swims up river (The Chicago River?) and spawns the Progressive “victory” from hell.

Its a natural instinct.

The Department of Justice plans to send federal monitors to 18 states to watch for discrimination against (DEMOCRAT) voters.

Discrimination against Republicans, Libertarians, Conservatives, and especially The Tea Party is highly encouraged!

Monitors will head to Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Kansas, North Carolina, Nebraska, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas and Wisconsin.

“One of the Justice Department’s most sacred responsibilities is ensuring access to the ballot box for every eligible (and ineligible Illegal Democrat) American,” Attorney General Eric Holder said in a video message on the department’s website.

“I want the American people to know that the Justice Department will stand vigilant — working in a fair and nonpartisan manner to ensure that every  (DEMOCRAT) voter can cast his or her ballot free of intimidation, discrimination or obstruction,” he said.

We would love to harass and intimidate everyone else though! Are the Black panthers available? Maybe La Raza??

Gotta watch for them racists! Those Illegal Aliens must be able to vote for Democrats.

And if that doesn’t work, there’s always rigging the machines to vote for Democrats.

After all, since they are so vastly superior and are destine to be your Lords and Master we can’t let the filthy peasants vote for the opposition– The Gates of Hell will open and swallow us all if that happens…

Succumb to Denial

Ah, the Ministry of Truth’s Education Indoctrination Division has been hard at work. The new line, since scaring them hasn’t worked with 100% efficiency…

If educators scare students too much about the threat of climate change, they may “succumb to denial,” a teachers’ guide by the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) warns. In its guide, “Teaching Climate Literacy and Energy Awareness,” NOAA presents seven “essential principles”:

  1. Sun is primary energy  (and anything else used by man is evil)
  2. Climate is complex (gee I thought Liberals made it very simple-Man is Evil)
  3. Life affects climate; climate affects life  (And Man is Evil so do as you’re told)
  4. Climate is variable (Cooling,Warming,Change, Disruption…but we are never wrong)
  5. Our understanding of climate  (is that man is evil and Liberals will save you all from yourself if only you give up all your freedom for the security of knowing they are in control of everything!)
  6. Humans affect climate  (and the world is fragile and can be broken by man’s evil)
  7. Climate change has consequence  (mostly in your loss of freedom)

Principle 7 – “Climate Change Will Have Consequences for the Earth System and Human Lives” – warns educators that scaring students can cause them to succumb to denial:

“Alarming students and the public about the impact of climate hazards, such as droughts and extreme events, can be counter-productive and cause people to ignore the warnings or succumb to denial.”

Marc Morano, publisher of Climate Depot and producer of upcoming documentary ‘Climate Hustle,’ tells MRCTV the guide is making it sound like disagreement on climate change is a disease:

“Does our government now think that the greatest threat kids face is ‘succumbing” to climate ‘denial?!’ They make it sound as bad as succumbing to Ebola.

Parents need to be very vigilant when it comes to their children’s education about man-made global warming.”

“Despair Deficit” is another challenge facing teachers trying to indoctrinate students about climate, the teachers’ guide warns:

“However, just glossing over the severity of the impacts and the enormous social and environmental ramifications of climate change can lead to a society that is ill-prepared to deal with change. Finding a balanced approach and avoiding a ‘despair deficit’ is clearly a good practice, both inside and outside of the classroom.”

The guide suggests some tactics for teachers to employ:

  • Drawing on case studies showing successful emissions reduction strategies.
  • Examining adaptation strategies for humans, plants and animals.
  • Creating an atmosphere of creativity and problem-solving as we all strive to meet this grand challenge.

It also recommends varying tactics based on the student’s age. In middle school, for example, the guide suggests teachers focus on the plight of “polar bears and penguins.”

You mean the polar bears that are starving because there’s TOO MUCH ICE?  No, of course you don’t.

But don’t worry, this is about science, not emotions. :)

In high school, teachers should incorporate climate doctrine into “traditional courses” such as geography, biology and chemistry.

College professors should expose students to climate change theory via blogs, Google Earth, and climate websites, the guide says. And, “upper-level college students” should be put to work researching the impacts of climate change, it says.

And if they find out it all smoke and mirrors crush them like the moron they are. That’s an E for you, dearie, sorry.

You need to be ‘re-educated”.

Principle 6 – “Human Activities are Impacting the Climate System” – also warns that teaching climate threat theory “can result in denial’ if not handled deftly:

WE’RE ALL GOING TO DIE BY 2054 IF YOU DON’T DO EXACTLY AS WE SAY RIGHT F*CKING NOW YOU MORONS!!!!!

Oops, sorry… :)

“Quite simply, this principle is challenging to teach because some sectors of the public continue to debate whether these ideas can be true, despite the well-established science. There are several possible reasons why students may resist the conclusion that humans are altering the climate.”

Yeah, actually science that doesn’t fit The Ministry’s conclusions must be stopped, can’t allow truth into the equation. This is “science” after all, where you gather evidence to prove your preferred conclusion only all other data is heresy.

“This concept may be uncomfortable to students due to feelings of guilt, political resistance or genuine lack of scientific understanding.

IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH.

You don’t want them to have impure thoughts now do we…

Furthermore, projections of the effects of climate change on our society can frighten, overwhelm, or discourage students. This can result in denial or resistance to learning. “ (CNS)

Yeah, the truth usually does that for The Left. :)  They hate The Truth. After all, The Ministry of Truth is about Lies.

After all, it’s about science, not politics….right? :)

<<snicker>>

It is fascinating that The Left makes pleas to be less emotional and more scientific on Ebola, but when it comes to Global Warming if Science get’s in their way they get all emotional.

Fascinating.

Now you don’t want to scare the kiddies with the Global Warming Monster under the bed or in the closet now do we…

BOO!

There are Liberal Progressives under your bed!

Now that’s scary! No denying that… :)
