The Post-Boehner War Begins NOW!

Conservatives 1 RINOs 0.

But it’s only the end of the first inning of a very long game.

“John’s not going to leave for another 30 days, so hopefully he feels like getting as much stuff done as he possibly can,” Mr. Obama said during a news conference with the Chinese president on Friday.

Cram it in now while we have the chance. Sounds familiar somehow?

After all, Conservatives are “extremists” and unwilling to compromise.  🙂 Hmmm, sound like Obama and the Democrats.

The unmovable object meets the irresistible force.

So we better pass everything before that happens, potentially, Obama is thinking.

It’s not like if another RINO gets in as Speaker the same voices will just go away.

But remember, we, the Conservatives, are the “extremists”.

Celebrate the retirement of John Boehner, and it is worth celebrating. But it doesn’t mark a victory for conservatism or the end of any battle. At best, it’s the beginning.

Well, he’s gone. More correctly, he’s going.

Speaker of the House John Boehner announced Friday that he’s resigning effective Oct. 30. My reaction, similar to that of most conservatives, was a resounding “good!”

And it is good, even though we’re unlikely to get the truly new blood we need in this position.

Barring some miracle, the next speaker of the House will be someone who has spent a lot of time in Washington, D.C. And you don’t spend a lot of time in Washington and possibly be elected speaker without having ingratiating yourself to a lot of people. And the only currency for ingratiation in politics is money.

Not always our money. Sometimes it’s campaign money. But for members of Congress to be a draw at fundraisers, they have to have some sway over how our tax money is dispensed. No one is going to give $2,000 to get a grip-n-grin picture with a backbench congressman with no power or influence. Juice gets the green.

So who will be the next speaker of the House? I don’t know. But there’s a saying about the devil you don’t know, and I fear we may end up with a person like that.

Boehner was awful at times, unwilling to fight the fights that mattered when they mattered and not having a strategy to at least put Democrats, particularly the president, in awkward positions. But his problems may not end up being unique to him. Considering he still has support from many Republicans – perhaps even a majority of the caucus – finding an acceptable person to replace him could be harder than people think.

The establishment appears to be coalescing around current Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy of California. He has some appeal to conservatives too, especially when measured against Boehner. But he will not be a savior.

He’s in leadership, which means he’s had every opportunity to strategize with the speaker to take the House in the right direction. It hasn’t happened. There’s little reason to believe much will change should he be the man in charge. It could, but nothing that happened in his current position would lead anyone to be convinced of that.

So who else is there? Lots of qualified conservatives could do the job. Whether they want it is a different story.

There’s no point in listing names – the list of people you’d like to see consider a run is as unique to you as your fingerprints. And I understand the belief that “there’s nowhere to go but up” when it comes to leadership in the House. But just because it seems like that doesn’t make it so.

If conservatives fracture, if they fail to unite behind one candidate and show a united front, we could end up with the devil we don’t know.

And ithink   that likely since the Establishment will want a RINO and the Conservative will want, well, a Conservative and the two are hard to meld together in these very partisan days.

There are egos amongst conservatives. There are friendships. There is loyalty between members. In short, just like the rest of Washington, it’s high school with paychecks.

The Nerds just dethroned the Class President. All his clique minions are buzzing with annoyance.

To elect a conservative speaker, or even a more conservative speaker, it’s going to require unity. That’s the one thing conservatives aren’t good at.

They don’t do groupthink like The Democrats do.

Several conservatives are flirting with a run. If they can’t coalesce around one, we’ll have another Speaker Squish.

And I still think that’s where we are headed.

Celebrate the retirement of John Boehner, and it is worth celebrating. But it doesn’t mark a victory for conservatism or the end of any battle. At best, it’s the beginning.

Conservatives have determination. They have the fight in them. But whether they have the ability to manage their way to success remains to be seen. A victory is great, but it’s just a victory. The fight isn’t over; it will never end.

The WAR begins now.

Eat, drink and be merry. Just remember that Boehner’s resignation, while significant, is a starting line, not a finish line. Without a united march forward, conservatives may win the first inning but lose the game. (Derek Hunter)

 AMEN!

Tranforming America

In this presidential cycle, voters in both parties, to the surprise of the punditocracy, are rejecting experienced political leaders. They’re willfully suspending disbelief in challengers who would have been considered laughable in earlier years.

Polls show more Republicans preferring three candidates who have never held elective office over 14 candidates who have served a combined total of 150 years as governors or in Congress. Most Democrats are declining to favor a candidate who spent eight years in the White House and the Senate and four as secretary of state.

And going in larger numbers for the complete Socialist package with little baggage, Bernie Sanders.

Psephologists of varying stripes attribute this discontent to varying causes. Conservatives blame insufficiently aggressive Republican congressional leaders. Liberals blame Hillary Clinton’s closeness to plutocrats and her home email system.

But in our system the widespread rejection of experienced leaders ultimately comes from dismay at the leader in the White House. In 1960 Richard Nixon, after eight years as vice president and six in Congress, campaigned on the slogan “Experience counts.” No one is running on that theme this year.

Nixon could, because over the preceding quarter-century the majority of Americans mostly approved of the performance of incumbent presidents. Presidents Roosevelt, Truman and Eisenhower still look pretty good more than 50 years later.

Barack Obama doesn’t. His deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes recently said that the president’s nuclear weapons deal with Iran was as important an achievement of his second term as Obamacare was of the first. Historians may well agree.

These two policy achievements have many things in common.

nuclear_blast

Both were unpopular when proposed and still are now. In March 2010 Speaker Nancy Pelosi said that people would know, and presumably like, what was in the bill after it was passed. But most Americans didn’t like it then and most don’t today, five and a half years later. As for the Iran deal, Pew Research reports it has only 21 percent approval today, much lower than Obamacare in 2010.

But since both are on THE AGENDA, they and The Ministry of Truth are happy.

What “the American People” want is irrelevant nowadays. It’s what The Agenda wants, whether it’s The Democrats or The Republican Elite RINOs.

Both Obamacare and the Iran deal were bulldozed through Congress through legislative legerdemain. Democrats passed Obamacare by using the temporary 60-vote Senate supermajority gained through a Minnesota recount and the wrongful prosecution of Sen. Ted Stevens. After they lost the 60th vote, they resorted to a dubious legislative procedure.

The Agenda is The Agenda.

This year Obama labeled the Iran treaty an executive agreement, and Congress concocted a process requiring only a one-third-plus-one rather than a two-thirds vote for approval. Only 38 percent of members of Congress supported it. Many, such as House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer, did so only after saying that they never would have accepted it in negotiations.

But the Republicans, allegedly in control of Congress,  willfully submitted to this slight of hand rather than stand on the principles that got them elected in the first place.

And they have done this REPEATEDLY. The Minority (Democrats) are still in control of Congress.

In 2008 Obama promised he would “fundamentally transform” America, and Obamacare and the Iran deal are indeed fundamental transformations of policy –transformations most Americans oppose.

But are on THE AGENDA, so they must be.

Obamacare assumed that financial crisis and recession would make most voters supportive of, or amenable to, bigger government. But as National Review’s Ramesh Ponnuru points out, polling doesn’t show that. Obama assumed that if America could “extend a hand” to such propitiated enemies as the mullahs of Iran, they would become friends with us. Most Americans think that’s delusional. No wonder voters are angry.

So he goes out an gets more Illegals to vote for Democrats instead. After all, it’s about the power of Homo Superior Liberalis. The Agenda is The Agenda.

Republican voters are frustrated and angry because for six years they have believed they have public opinion on their side, but their congressional leaders have failed to prevail on high visibility issues. Their successes (clamping down on domestic discretionary spending) have been invisible. They haven’t made gains through compromise because Obama, unlike his two predecessors, lacks both the inclination and ability to make deals.

Rigid Ideologues and weak spined Republicans will do that.

So Republicans who imposed harsh litmus tests in previous presidential cycles (like asking candidates if they’ve ever supported a tax increase, or if they’ve ever wavered in their opposition to abortion) are flocking to Donald Trump, a candidate who would fail every one of them. They are paying little attention to candidates — Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio, Scott Walker, Chris Christie, Bobby Jindal — who advance serious proposals to change public policy.

Because, we don’t believe them. The proof is in the Jar Jar Boehner and Mitch The Ditch pudding.

In polls, Democratic voters have stayed loyal to the president. But to listen to their candidates (and maybe-candidate Joe Biden) you would think we are in our seventh year of oppression by a right-wing administration. You don’t hear much about the virtues of Obamacare or the Iran deal — or “choice.”

Of course not, it’s still, Vote for Me, the “other guy” is an asshole. The “other guy” is still the fear mongering and “Bush” narratives. Grandma is still going be thrown out in the street by evil White, Male, Rich Republicans. The candy is still going to be stolen from babies by evil, heartless Conservatives.

The narrative hasn’t changed because The Democrats haven’t changed.

Most Americans hoped the first black president would improve race relations. Now most Americans believe they have gotten worse.

White Guilt has bit them in the asp!

And so a president who came to office with relatively little experience has managed to tarnish experience, incumbency and institutions: a fundamental transformation indeed. (Michael Barone)

those dame dirty nukes! Agree with me or else!

Coalition of The Unwilling

The semantically unsound rubbish concept of “Islamophobia” disorients well-meaning people and incites them to spout illogicalities with a preacher’s righteousness.

“Islamophobia” contributes to the generalized befuddlement on the left about the faith in question and whether negative talk about it constitutes some sort of racism, or proxy for it.

It shouldn’t but it does.

204 authors to sign a letter dissociating themselves from PEN’s granting the Toni and James C. Goodale Freedom of Expression Courage Award to the brave, talented surviving artists of Charlie Hebdo.

The authors objecting did so out of concern, according to their statement, for “the section of the French population” – its Muslims – “that is already marginalized, embattled, and victimized, a population that is shaped by the legacy of France’s various colonial enterprises.”  A “large percentage” of these Muslims are “devout,” contend the writers, and should thus be spared the “humiliation and suffering” Charlie Hebdo’s cartoons allegedly caused them.

Bill Maher (who’s politics couldn’t be farther from mine) called Pamela Geller a “loon” but said, “This is America, do we not have the right to draw whatever we want?”

Maher brought up Charlie Hebdo and said he’s a little disturbed by the whole “soft bigotry of low expectations” when it comes to that magazine’s critics assuming that “Muslims aren’t able to control themselves.”

So since they got off on any provocation THEY perceive  we must their walk on micro eggshells and temper everything we do and say about them like they are a volatile  chemical ready to exploded at any second?

That’s crazy talk!

Islamic radicals kill people and it’s the people’s fault for victimizing their sensibilities!!!

The Nazis kill Jews and Homosexuals in the millions in WWI and it’s the  dead victims of the gas chambers and mass murders fault!!!

That’s how messed up the Left and The Leftist media’s brains are now.

So, why is there such a difference between the coverage of Christianity and Islam bashing? Why so much criticism against Geller for merely hosting this event? One shouldn’t have to question their right to speak, assemble, or carry a firearm. I don’t find questioning the why someone chooses to exercise laws codified in our Bill of Rights to be a discussion. In some cases, it’s a progressive exercise to put the Constitution of a graduated scale to put some amendments, likes the Second one, in the crosshairs for marginalization and elimination. These are rights that should be maximized in civil society. So, why do some members of the media have this appalling attitude? Maybe it’s because they know Islam has a problem, and it’s one that’s been present for a very, very long time (via NRO):

…The fury against Pamela Geller is motivated mostly by fear — by the understanding that there are indeed many, many Muslims who believe that blasphemy should be punished with death, and who put that belief into practice. It’s motivated by the fear that our alliances with even “friendly” Muslim states and “allied” Muslim militias are so fragile that something so insignificant as a cartoon would drive them either to neutrality or straight into the arms of ISIS.…

That’s why even the military brass will do something so unusual as call a fringe pastor of a tiny little church to beg him not to post a YouTube video. That’s why the president of the United States — ostensibly the most powerful man in the world — will personally appeal to that same pastor not to burn a Koran. They know that hundreds of millions of Muslims are not “moderate” by any reasonable definition of that word, and they will,in fact, allow themselves to be provoked by even the most insignificant and small-scale act of religious satire or defiance. After all, there are Muslim communities that will gladly burn Christians alive to punish even rumored blasphemy.

Our nation’s “elite” knows of the 88 percent support in Egypt for the death penalty for apostasy, and the 62 percent support in Pakistan. They know of the majority support for it in Malaysia, Jordan, and the Palestinian territories. They know that even when there’s not majority support for the death penalty for exercising one of the most basic of human rights — religious freedom — that large minorities still exercise considerable, and often violent, influence on their nations. The elite also knows this bloodthirstiness extends to supporting terrorists. The following Pew Research Center numbers should sober anyone who believes in the “few extremists” model of Muslim culture

Further, our elites also know that while ISIS’s brutality certainly repels many Muslims, it attracts many others — that there are Muslim young people who are so captivated by images of beheadings and burnings that they’ll defy the law and their own nations to make their way to the jihadist battlefronts of Iraq and Syria.

Unable or unwilling to formulate a strategy to comprehensively defeat jihad or even to adequately defend our nation, our elites adopt a strategy of cultural appeasement that only strengthens our enemy. Millions in the Muslim world are drawn to the “strong horse” (to use Osama bin Laden’s phrase), and when jihadists intimidate the West into silence and conformity, the jihadists show themselves strong.

Now, what happened in Garland shouldn’t drive us all to participate in a national campaign of “do your part, offend a Muslim, but some in the media–and in politics–need to quit with the political correctness sound bites and parsing of the First Amendment. There is no such thing as responsibility with free speech; that’s liberal code for don’t say things we don’t like. Exercise your speech with pride–and if it offends someone; politely remind him or her they have every right to voice why they think you’re wrong.  They can also express their views in a cartoon-format.

Leftist Sanctimony

While Obama is off golfing for 16 days, spending millions of dollars relaxing…

HOUSTON, Texas–An ad placed in the Penny Saver Newspaper in Murrieta, California is seeking “loving, compassionate parents to provide a loving home” for illegal immigrant minors, according to a local reader of the publication. 

Lisa Maloney Vinton, a Murrieta resident, provided Breitbart Texas with a purported copy of the advertisement, which was put up by the Crittenton Services and Foster Family Agency. It says, “Help heal the wounds … for children in foster care programs including survivors of human trafficking and unaccompanied refugee minors.” 

Parents who offer up their homes could have a child placed in their home in “as short as 45 days” and be paid up to $6,054 per month, according to the advertisement. 

Cindy Lemos, another Murrieta resident, told Breitbart Texas that she called the number on the advertisement. She said, “I called this afternoon and the gentlemen I spoke to told me that they are receiving the illegal immigrants but that none of them are under the age of 12. I asked him where all the younger children were… he told me that he was wondering the exact same thing.”]

The foster immigrant children ad was placed by the Crittenton Services and Foster Family Agency – FFA.

When Benswann.com contacted the FFA journalists learned:

“Those willing to a take in a child under the age of 16 can receive up to $854.00 tax free per month. For those taking in a child over 16, the total is $1,008.00 per month in reimbursement. If you have a 5 bedroom house and can take in as many as 6 children, you can receive reimbursement of up to $6,054.00 per month tax free.”

Reimbursement for the monthly payments is reportedly provided by multiple state and local grants for American children, but in the case of the “unaccompanied refugee minors,” the entire cost is paid by the federal government. Regardless of the government program or grant used to pay the expense, all funds stem from taxpayer dollars.

So if bribery isn’t your thing…How about naked arrogance….

Michelle Malkin: They’ve blown it again, big time. They just can’t help themselves.

Leftist Sanctimony will do that…. 🙂

During the Bush years, the open-borders movement won over bleeding hearts in the White House but alienated the American public with radical displays of La Raza (“The Race”) militancy, desecrated American flags and Che Guevara shirt-wearing, fist-thrusting marches across the country.

Left-wing public relations consultants taught the amnesty mob to tone it down, turn the flags right-side up and stop threatening Reconquista. But the phony red-white-and-blue dye job didn’t last. The movement’s true extremist, entitled roots can’t be concealed for long.

On Monday, leading illegal-alien journalist turned activist Jose Antonio Vargas engaged in a foolish stunt that will backfire on him and his allies in the media and Hollywood and on Capitol Hill. An openly defiant law-breaker who proudly calls himself “the most privileged undocumented immigrant in the country,” Vargas traveled to Texas with a film crew to commune with illegal aliens surging across the border.

But on his way out of the Rio Grande Valley, the former Washington Post reporter and Pulitzer Prize winner was detained at the McAllen, Texas, airport by Customs and Border Patrol. He was attempting to clear security and board a flight without legally required U.S. identification.

No surprise: Vargas initially made it past the buffoons at the TSA.

The media-savvy amnesty agitator telegraphed the stunt beforehand in a piece for Politico. He hyped sympathetic coverage from the liberal Huffington Post. He tweeted a photo of his Philippine passport and a pocket Constitution, which he audaciously presented to authorities in lieu of valid ID.

And then Vargas’ publicity minions captured and tweeted the exact moment when he was handcuffed, looking shocked and aggrieved that federal law enforcement officers would actually — gasp! — enforce the law.

An illegal-alien Icarus, Vargas had been riding high after movie theaters and CNN aired his biographical, pro-illegal immigration documentary. His amnesty activism is backed by the progressive Tides Center, a project of George Soros and former ACORN chief organizer Drummond Pike. To his elite friends in the no-borders industry, he’s a “hero.”

Journalists, celebrities and politicians immediately swallowed the propaganda bait, rallying to their privileged pal’s side. “#DontDeportJose,” they all cried in an orchestrated Twitter campaign.

Meanwhile, hundreds of thousands of law-abiding people from around the world are waiting patiently for their backlogged visa and green card applications to be reviewed.

Vargas’ outraged reporter friends don’t have much sympathy for those would-be Americans. Or for the Americans who’ve dedicated their lives to protecting homeland security and upholding our laws. Vargas’ enablers jumped to condemn the CBP employees in McAllen for doing their jobs and demanded that he be freed from “unfair” and “out of hand” detention, as one hysterical Roll Call reporter put it.

Unfair and out of hand?

As I’ve noted previously, Vargas came here from the Philippines as a child, but knowingly broke multiple laws as an adult in order to stay in the country. After being supplied with a fake passport with a fake name, a fake green card and a bogus Social Security number, he committed perjury repeatedly on federal I-9 employment eligibility forms. In 2002, while pursuing his journalism career goals, an immigration lawyer told him he needed to accept the consequences of his law-breaking and return to his native Philippines. He ignored the counsel and instead used a friend’s address to obtain an Oregon driver’s license under false pretenses. It gave him an eight-year golden ticket to travel by car, board trains and airplanes, work at prestigious newspapers, and even gain access to the White House — where crack Secret Service agents allowed him to attend a state dinner using his bogus Social Security number.

The Vargas stunt will backfire because it is a smug and emblematic middle finger to everyone outside the D.C.-Manhattan bubble who believes in following the rules. As legal immigrant Asoka Samarasinghe wrote to me on Monday, “Michelle, this guy is a slap to the face of all us legal immigrants and citizens.”

As for “due process,” celebrity illegal alien Vargas will undoubtedly get more bites at the immigration court and federal appeals apple than law-abiding citizens will ever enjoy (see Zeituni Onyango).

But the sob-story violins play on. Democratic New York Mayor Bill de Blasio sanctimoniously tweeted Monday afternoon: “I stand in solidarity with journalist and advocate [Vargas]. He exemplifies what America is about.”

Only if “America” means protecting leftist elitists from the consequences of their reckless, arrogant actions.

THE AGENDA IS THE AGENDA!

And your get the bill…Bend over… 🙂

Pajama Boy, WTF?

Year End Note:Egypt’s government has wisely designated the Muslim Brotherhood a “terrorist organization.”

You remember them, they were the ones that Obama backed despite all the warnings to the contrary. 🙂 Nothing to see there…so we turn to Social Media…

***

I guess this shows how much I don’t Tweet anything or miss out on a lot of Prime Time TV Ads because until today I hadn’t heard of this goof.

But apparently, like Julia (the computer sprite) this simplistic, and condescending messenger is getting whacked by politicos.

But he’s supposed to be simplistic and condescending!! That’s liberalism for you. You’re supposed to be simplistic and they are supposed to be condescending. That’s the way it works.

They are after all, the Superior Race of Humanity! 🙂

And you’re not!

embodying so much that is wrong with Obamacare and socialism in general – the infantilization of adults, the smirking know-it-all attitude of the nanny state, and the inappropriate intrusions in our private lives” as the American Thinker put it.

The fact that these ads are made by the Presidents own Campaign Committee, Organizing for America (even though he can’t run for a 3rd term-yet!) should tell you everything you’d need to know.

But apparently, our saintly hero of the left is a typical liberal extremist. At least typical to the ones I used to meet on message boards, before I stopped playing with them that is.

“I’m a liberal f***,” he wrote in the typical leftist vernacular on his now-deleted blog, according to research by the Daily Caller. “A liberal f*** is not a Democrat, but rather someone who combines political data and theory, extreme leftist views and sarcasm to win any argument while make (sic) the opponents feel terrible about themselves. I won every argument but one.”

In other words, he knows more than you as he arches his eyebrows with smug certainty to “persuade” you to buy ObamaCare.

Apparently, he’s been at it awhile and doesn’t take kindly to thoughtful discussion or argument. he dismissed his critics in an interview with the Badger Herald of Wisconsin by saying he gave them “a huge middle finger.” He summed up: “We have no morals, and we will attack you.”

If this doesn’t sum up the Obama administration’s smoldering contempt for the vast majority of voters who are now suffering under the incompetence and cost of the ObamaCare he’s now selling, what does?

Krupp’s views are those of a left-wing extremist, one who is certain he knows what’s better for voters than they do. We’ve seen his attitude in other pitches for ObamaCare, such as by Obama ally Rep. Xavier Becerra, D-Calif., who browbeat a group of students at Cal State Los Angeles earlier this month, and Internet ads that urge the young to buy ObamaCare by depicting a bunch of beer-swilling boobs.

At a Dec. 6 event, one of Obama’s staunchest allies, Rep. Xavier Becerra, D-Calif., looked over a group of about 200 young, mostly Hispanic students at California State University, Los Angeles, and asked how many of them had signed up for ObamaCare.

After no hands went up, he proceeded browbeat them about being potential burdens to “the rest of us taxpayers,” adding: “You want to be invincible! And you’re thinking you’ll stay so. Well, you’re going to get old.”

He also tried to explain away the no-sign-up phenomenon to his National Journal/Atlantic hosts as a matter of young people under 27 being on their parents’ plan — a questionable assumption, given that many of the students that day were the children of immigrants working their way through school and are past 27.

It was a despicable performance, seemingly aimed more at justifying the unpopular program’s existence than selling it to the young. And it was compounded by the bad information Becerra gave out about Social Security to those in attendance who wanted to know about that plan’s solvency when time came for them to retire.

Rather than answer the question, Becerra launched into a furious rant about how young people don’t vote and ought to. (“You mean for you,” whispered a cynical 20-something in the back row).

The irony was, the kids in the audience probably did vote, given they were attending the congressman’s presentation on their own time on a Friday afternoon.

They were probably Democrats!

We spoke to some of them. Did they have a problem with Becerra’s message? “I thought he looked down on us,” remarked a young Hispanic business major named George, the first in his family to go to college. “And that part about Social Security being there for us when we retire was just a lie.”

“Well, I’m not going to sign up,” said Sacha, a 20-something attendee who said she didn’t like “the position” of the congressman either.

It wasn’t just one smirking congressman who was the problem, however. Becerra is a close ally of President Obama and a member of the president’s “strike team” of House and Senate Democrats tasked with urging young people to sign up for ObamaCare coverage.

The strike team, according to Reuters, spreads White House talking points to young potential buyers of health insurance to persuade them to sign up. In the case of Becerra, the young people could tell his remarks were more about saving Obama than doing anything good for them. And many seemed to resent it.

Maybe that’s not so surprising. A Reuters survey released Friday found 57% of young people disapprove of ObamaCare. That followed a Dec. 15 USA Today/Pew poll showing only 41% approved of Obama’s signature health care policy while 54% disapproved.

Meanwhile, among Hispanics, to whom Becerra had probably been reaching out, Obama’s support has tumbled 23 percentage points in one year, from 75% to 52%, the steepest drop among all demographic groups, according to a Dec. 5 Gallup poll.

And yet this was the very group Becerra chose to browbeat, constantly defending ObamaCare instead of listening to the real concerns of the young and, more important, taking the message back to the White House.

For ObamaCare to work, it requires 7 million sign-ups in its own projected goals, with about one-third, or 2.3 million, healthy young people necessary to subsidize the older, sicker buyers.

So they have to con the young people into buying it, just like the last 2 Presidential elections! and Then there’s Hilary in 2016…

They aren’t going to get these numbers until the economics improve for them — not just at the ObamaCare exchanges, but in the job market too. And they sure as heck aren’t going to sign up with one of Obama’s minions scolding them.

The only thing that can be concluded from Becerra sorry performance is that, with friends like him, Obama-Care doesn’t need enemies. (IBD)

But you’re still too stupid to know how great and magnanimous they are and they will continue to beat you up until you understand just how great they really are and how small and stupid you were for doubting them.

Krupp wears soft, cuddly pajamas to appear presumably friendly, but based on his views stated elsewhere, he’d put you in a penal camp if he could.

The ends justify the means for someone who openly says he shuns morals. That’s the sort of coercion the ObamaCare campaign is coming to. (IBD)

Oh, and if you disagree with Pajama Boy, apparently you’re a racist! (anti-Semite which is funny if you think about).

Homo Superior Liberalis, folks. In all it’s glory! 🙂

Deep Impact!

Translation

Hilary: “Because we can’t move from crisis to crisis, we have to be willing to come together as citizens to focus on the kind of future we want,” she said. As the shouts grew louder from an upper section of bleachers, she added, “which doesn’t include yelling. It includes sitting down and talking.” (sit down and shut up I’m Talking!)

But as we know, Democrats don’t listen to anyone who disagrees with them. 🙂

During the question-and-answer session, the former first lady deflected the inevitable question about whether she’d run for president by saying she hoped whoever ran would be able to “isolate the extreme voices” and allow the majority of people to be heard.

Translation: Yes. But we have to crush the Tea Party “extremists” and crush and  win back the House first. So then the Democrats can do whatever they want, whenever they want, and because they want and no “extremist” (disagreement) will get in their way.

“I’m hoping we will — move away from the slash and burn politics, the name calling, the excessive partisanship that we’ve seen too much of lately,” she said.

Because if we control everyone and everything then it won’t matter what you think.

…lamenting as she did again in Buffalo that too many people in politics were choosing “scorched earth over common ground.” (CBS)

You can “negotiate” with a liberal politician? Since when? I’m sure Harry Reid is open to anything the Republican propose. It’s not like they have an AGENDA or anything??

Common Ground? Nuking each other IS the only common ground anyone has left thanks to the hyper-partisaned AGENDA.

You give them everything they want and they won’t nuke you with their Ministry of Truth or call you “racists”.

Simple. 🙂

Off to the Races…

Let me say, I had a friend who was there in Boston and ran the Marathon. He’s fine.

http://dailycaller.com/2013/04/15/shocking-video-shows-boston-explosions/

But the Predictable happens:

CNN national security analyst Peter Bergen told host Jake Tapper on Monday that the explosions in Boston could be the work of Al Qaeda terrorists as much as they could be part of a planned assault by “right-wing extremists.” Bergen said he was reminded of the Oklahoma City bombing, and that terrorism on the right could not be ruled out.

“I’ll bet good money it’s a right-wing nutjob. Today is April 15, Boston Harbor was where the original Tea Party took place and the on-going gun-safety legislation makes it the mostly likely culprit,” commenter Linda Ginsburg wrote.

Michael Moore: “2+2 = Tax Day. Patriots Day”.  So it must be a Teabagger right?

I theorize it’s an NRA radical attack. Being that the families of Newtown were there and the last mile of the race was dedicated

it’s a Tea Party Terrorist act.”

Nida Khan, Producer of Al Sharpton’s TV Show: “We don’t know anything yet of course, but it is tax day & my first thought was all these anti-gov groups, but who knows”

CNN’s Wolf Blitzer just speculated if anti-tax groups were behind the bombing WITH ZERO EVIDENCE. (and he’s a “journalist”!!)

New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof tweeted, “Explosion is a reminder that ATF needs a director. Shame on Senate Republicans for blocking apptment.”

Who knew? Bill Ayers, bernardine dohrn, the weather underground and all those 60′s domestic terrorists were on the far right? Thanks for that info tingle leg Chris Matthews. Most domestic terrorists tend to be on the far right. The Black Liberation Army, the Earth Liberation Front, the Fort Hood shooting by Nidal Hassan, all right wing extremists according to tingle leg Chris Matthews. Tingles also tried to bring up the fact it was ‘tax day’ to try and suggest tea party conservatives were responsible for the bombing. If i had a big middle finger ASCII i’d use it right now.

Have you spotted the Liberal meme (talking point) yet?. And this all over the country and within hours of the bombings.

And you doubted me when I compared the left to Bees and Drones having a hive mind. 🙂

CR: If this turns out to be a foreign terrorist, the left will be frantically reporting 24-7 about how this is an isolated incident, cannot condemn a whole people, culture, etc.

If this turns out to be some homegrown anti-gov. nut job, the left will run 24-7 stories about how the tea party and right wing radio and every conservative in the country are to blame.

They will see no disconnect in these positions.

No they won’t. They can’t. Their Doublespeak/Doublethink training doesn’t allow it.

But don’t worry, Obama is on the case: Be Afraid!  He might have to stop Campaigning for 5 minutes.

Obama recycles same talking points from Benghazi attack for Boston

obama-boogerI watched Obama’s press conference earlier on the Boston terrorist attack where he refused to call it a terrorist attack. But I didn’t realize that he used the exactly same lines and talking points in this speech as he did the day after the Benghazi attack when four Americans were killed. Compare and Contrast Obama’s Benghazi and Boston statements and see if you notice the pattern:

Obama recycled talking points with Benghazi and Boston – Weasel Zippers Obama same words used after Benghazi and Boston terrorist attacks

Hmmmm….. Well, Liberals are big on Recycling…. 🙂

Right Wing Extremists!  Tea Partiers!!  OFF WITH THEIR HEADS!

But I bet it made them “feel” good.

So sad…
