The Losers? All of Us



I hate to say it, but Americans STILL haven’t woken up about Barry/Barack and his schemes.  Sure, there’s some outrage over the fact that people are losing their health insurance plans and that Obama lied, but where are the calls for repeal of ObamaCare among ordinary Americans?  They haven’t been affected yet.   At least not affected enough.  Will it happen in 2014 to a sufficient degree that Republicans gain control of the Senate?  We’ll see.  In the meantime, here’s a great analogy from HDR reader Scott:


If a landlord promises you can keep your dog when you move into an apartment, but then after you sign the lease he takes your dog and replaces it with a stuffed one, he wasn’t telling you the truth. The landlord’s view that the new dog is better (“No mess! No noise!”) is utterly irrelevant to the question of whether the landlord lied — and it doesn’t make you a fool for preferring your old dog, either.  It’s good that liberal supporters of the law admit that what the president said wasn’t true, even if they can’t bring themselves to call the president a liar. But they might want to think a bit about the standard they are establishing.

Heck….even my 2-year-old niece knows ObamaCare is a disaster:

Obama Officials in 2010:  93 Million Americans Will Be Unable to Keep Their Health Plans  If you read the Affordable Care Act when it was passed, you knew that it was dishonest for President Obama to claim that “if you like your plan, you can keep your plan,” as he did—and continues to do—on countless occasions. And we now know that the administration knew this all along. It turns out that in an obscure report buried in a June 2010 edition of the Federal Register, administration officials predicted massive disruption of the private insurance market.

Ever wonder about that girl who was the face on the ObamaCare website????  Interesting story:  I am the ObamaCare Website Girl  Not sure if it’s true – tried to find it on Snopes.  But if Obama can invent a whole story about the fictional Julia and her utopia world of ObamaCare, why not this??  Sounds just  – if not more – plausible.  (Shaka to Karen)

John McAfee on the ObamaCare website:  ‘This is a hacker’s wet dream.‘  Watch the video.  The guy knows something about hacking.  (Shaka to hubby)  More:  Security Violation Just Tip of the ObamaCare Iceberg  Over the weekend, Heritage brought you the exclusive story of Justin Hadley, a North Carolina man who, after learning his insurance policy was being canceled due to Obamacare, logged on to HealthCare.gov and found a big surprise—the eligibility information of another family in a different state.


Election Stuff:

ICYMI…and you probably did because it was a Democrat who was behaving badly and acting like a racist.  LT Gov Candidate Refuses to Shake Opponent’s Hand   Just as Terry McAuliffe won, so did Ralph Northam.  Does this mean all Virginians must be racist since they didn’t elect EW Jackson?

Why Ken Cuccinell’s Loss Doesn’t Tell Us Anything About the Tea Party Though the shutdown has shouldered the brunt of the blame for Cuccinelli’s failure, the investigation into McDonnell hurt Cuccinelli months before.  And:  Breaking Down Ken Cuccinelli’s Close Loss in Virginia

Chris Christie:  ‘Elements of the Tea Party are Republicans at Their Best’  He won by more than 20 percentage points yesterday.  In very blue New Jersey.

America’s First Openly Marxist Big City Mayor  Described by CNN as the “unabashed liberal,” Bill de Blasio is actually to the left of Barack Obama, in the sense that de Blasio didn’t disavow his communist background once it came to light. At least Obama tried to cover up his ties to communist Frank Marshall Davis.

Other Stuff:

What’s Happening in the Middle East While All Eyes are on ObamaCare?  USA Today reported on October 25th that Iran could produce enough weapons-grade uranium to build a nuclear bomb in as little as a month. Despite this, the Obama Administration has been trying to convince Congress not to go ahead with a bill to tighten sanctions against Iran, and to stall Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s efforts to keep the sanctions tight until strict conditions are met.

Obama’s Ex-Bodyguard:  ‘Scandals Worse Than You Know’  “It’s to the point where these (Obama) scandals in and of themselves would be huge, backbreaking scandals are just lost in the ‘scandal fog’ of this administration.” He added: “It’s worse than people know; I’m not trying to scare you either.”

Obama Approval Falls to 39%; Under 50% Among Latinos  Watch the video of the Toronto mayor Rob Ford who admitted smoking crack.  His approval rating is 43%.  Maybe Barry should re-join the Chum Gang??  And there’s this:  Obama Approval Rating Lower Than Bush’s At Same Point During Presidency

Obama’s Disastrous Stewardship of America’s Armed Forces This week the Senate Armed Services Readiness sub-committee will hear closed-door readiness briefing that every member of the Senate committee has been invited to attend….What members will find is that military readiness—and the armed forces’ overall capacity to defend all our vital national interests—is dropping fast. Sequester has accelerated the decline, but it is only part of the problem.


A Not-So-Open Book

TransparencyALOHA, ALL!!

This administration is about as transparent as a burka.  Remember how Barry/Barack Soetoro/Obama promised the most transparent administration in history?  It’s been anything but.  Now we find out that within this oh-so-opaque den of political hacks, secret email addresses are being used so discussions can take place without us knowing about them.

Sebelius, Other Obama Appointees Using Secret Email Addresses  “Former EPA chief Lisa Jackson, aka Richard Windsor, was apparently the rule and not the exception when it came to multiple and secret email accounts.”  And:  Obama’s Top Brass Use Private Email to Avoid Turning Over Information to the Public  “…many of President Obama’s political appointees use personal email to avoid the Freedom of Information Act and other legal and transparency requirements on a regular basis.”  Barry said this in 2009:

SHUT THE FRONT DOOR, BARRY!!!!  If this is your idea of transparency you need to go back to Punahou and learn what the word actually means.  “Transparency and the rule of law will be the touchstones of this Presidency.”  LOL!!!!!!

DOJ Denies Perjury Charge Against Holder; Holder Not Responding  Beuhler?  Buehler?  “Reps. Bob Goodlatte and James Sensenbrenner of the House Judiciary Committee finally got a response to their letter, but not from the addressee, and that has them steamed. In what the Times-Dispatch called “an attempt to mollify Republican lawmakers,” Eric Holder handed off the demand for an explanation of seemingly false testimony to the committee on May 15th to a subordinate.”

Special Election to fill Lautenberg’s Seat  “New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) on Tuesday called an Oct. 16 special election to fill the late-Sen. Frank Lautenberg’s (D) seat, sending voters to the polls just weeks before he faces his own reelection. Christie argued his decision to hold the election in mid-October rather than have it coincide with the Nov. 4 gubernatorial election was required by the legal statutes.”

Black Leaders Plan to Protest Illegal Amnesty  “Recognizing the detrimental jobs effect amnesty of 12 million illegal aliens most certainly will have on the black community, BALA has scheduled a march on DC June 15th. The organization hopes to bring attention to the sky-high unemployment rate in the black community as well as the disaster the proposed immigration legislation would be for the jobs market.”

IG Report Finds Broad, Wasteful Spending at IRS Conferences  “IRS officials spent $49 million across 225 conferences between 2010 and 2012, according to a government report released Tuesday. One division of the Internal Revenue Service spent more than $4 million on a single 2010 conference in Anaheim, Calif., including on “Star Trek” parody video that has already caused the agency embarrassment.”

BREAKING!  More IRS inside info from Carl:  Joseph Curl, a columnist for the Washington Times and Editor at the Drudge Report, says he has sources that the IRS scandal is about to explode:

Hearing from some top Hill sources that IRS scandal about to explode. Low-level agency workers miffed at being blamed. About to return fire.

One source says there’s a paper trail to DC, and some who were worried from the get-go kept a paper trail. Wouldn’t say WH, but said ‘high.’

Based on the stuff we already know, I think this is likely a solid report.

Last But Not Least…..
