Veterans Break the Obama Blockade. By Matthew Vadum
Excerpt: Thousands of World War Two veterans fed up with President Obama’s needlessly cruel closure of national shrines in order to put pressure on his political enemies, yesterday stormed the cordoned-off open-air
memorial that was created to honor them. ... This was quite unlike the
treatment afforded left-wing pro-immigration amnesty protesters whose
demonstration on the National Mall last week authorities bent over backwards to
accommodate. Police even let the activists erect a stage in the area that was
supposed to be off-limits to the general public. Washington, D.C.

Federal health exchange sending confusing enrollment information to insurers
Excerpt: The federal health-care exchange that opened a dozen days ago is marred by snags beyond the widely publicized computer gridlock that has thwarted Americans trying to buy a health plan. Even when consumers have been able to sign up, insurers sometimes can’t tell who their new customers are because of a separate set of computer defects.

Energy Future America
Excerpt: The biggest energy challenge facing
America is the need to expand, upgrade,
modernize and better protect 's
electric grid. ... Another vexing issue is "green power." Government
policies in this regard are undermining grid reliability and increasing outages
because the intermittent nature of green sources of electricity decreases the
stability the system needs. America
Excerpt: It is widely assumed that a health insurance mandate is necessary in any workable health care system and that it is especially needed if insurance companies are not allowed to price their premiums based on health status, as is the case under the Affordable Care Act. Yet most countries in the world do not have an individual mandate. And I can’t think of a single valid argument for one.
Professionals Abuse Social Security Programs
Excerpt: In 1993, Eric Christopher Conn opened a legal practice in a small trailer in rural
would go on to build one of the largest and most lucrative disability practices
in the nation. A two-year investigation of his actions representing claimants
applying for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental
Security Income (SSI) benefits uncovered a raft of improper practices by the
Conn law firm to obtain disability benefits, inappropriate collusion between
Mr. Conn and a Social Security Administrative Law Judge, and inept agency
oversight that enabled the misconduct to continue for years, says a recent
report from the U.S. Senate Committee on Homeland Security & Governmental
Affairs. Since at least 2006, Judge David B. Daugherty had a practice of
coordinating with Mr. Conn Mr. Conn
to create what was referred to as a "DB List," which was a list of 's
clients that the judge planned to approve for benefits that month. After
deciding which claimants would be on the month's DB List, Judge Daugherty
personally telephoned Mr. Conn Mr. Conn's
office, provided the claimant list to one of 's
employees, and indicated whether the claimants needed to provide additional
medical evidence of a "mental" or "physical" ailment.
Within days, Mr. Conn scheduled the listed claimants to see
one of the several doctors he paid to provide medical assessments. These
doctors almost invariably concluded that the claimant was disabled. In most
cases, the doctors simply signed and dated a medical form that had been filled
out ahead of time by Mr. Conn 's office. Mr. Conn
Too many Americans are in homes they can't afford. By Edward Pinto
Excerpt: Recently, the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) said it needs $1.7bn to cover losses, the first taxpayer-funded bailout in the organization's 79-year history. To put that in perspective, if FHA were held to the same standards as private mortgage insurers, it would be insolvent to the tune of $25bn. While this is bad news for the taxpayers, FHA has an even more troubling problem. For decades FHA's underwriting practices have put families into homes they can't afford. By financing failure, FHA has made foreclosures commonplace.
Obamacare Is Not a Bailout of State and Local Governments. By Stephen Eide
Excerpt: True to the iron law of journalist math ("one, two, trend"), when Detroit and Chicago announced plans to use Obamacare to eliminate retirees' health coverage, several stories came out predicting that it would be only a matter of time before other governments followed suit. Conservatives pounced, eager to highlight yet another imperfection in what they view as a hopelessly flawed policy. As if Obamacare's subsidies, new taxes, and regulations weren't bad enough, the law may also bail out spendthrift state and local governments.
Excerpt: I've been saying for years that Barack Hussein Obama has proven to be the most divisive President ever. His demonization of opponents, his "my way or the highway" relationship with Congress, his circumvention of the Congress and breach of Constitutional law, his tendency to take sides in any Black-White social dispute, his history with the Reverend "God Damn America" Wright, his hate filled Ebonic-laced speeches to the NAACP, and his absolute failure to honor the opinions of those who oppose his philosophies have divided this nation to heights not seen since the Civil War. Now, someone has come along and presented a mathematics model that would seem to support my opinion.
Ridding the Nobel Prizes of Anti-Muslim Bias. By Bruce Bawer
Excerpt: What to do? Even as the distaste for Jews intensifies around the Western world and more and more members of the international community step up the pressure on
to stop being the cause of so much trouble in the otherwise idyllic Middle East, Israeli and Jewish scientists continue to
clean up at the Nobel Prizes. It’s nothing less than fascinating, in fact, that
notwithstanding the lack of affection for Jews and the Jewish state that is
evidenced in the Scandinavian media, Jews (who, after all, represent less than
0.2% of the world population) have managed to accumulate a staggeringly
disproportionate number of Nobel Prizes over the decades – making up about 21%
of the laureates in chemistry, 26% in physics, 27% in physiology or medicine,
and 37% in economics.

Leftist Fanatics Responsible for Government Shutdown
Excerpt: In 2010, a Democrat-controlled House of Representatives, without a single Republican vote, passed “ObamaCare” by a margin of 219 to 212. In a staggering act of misfeasance, hardly a single member had read, let alone studied, the 1,900 page law (2,700 pages according to some authorities), which had been dumped into the House only days earlier. The 219 members of that House who voted for ObamaCare were willing to impose massive, and massively expensive, legislation on the American people without any real idea of what they were doing. Had those members been members of the board of directors of a private corporation, their complete and utter lack of due diligence would almost certainly have exposed them to enormous law suits and, quite possibly, criminal penalties. (Sooner or later, someone needs to act on principle...let's hope it's over Obamacare. --Margaret)
Memorials to our fallen should never be closed. By William R. Forstchen

Two small parks and an inn win victories over National Park Service closings. By Mary Katharine Ham
Excerpt: Call it the shutdown of shutdown theater. A couple of small parks have taken to the courts to dispute their bullying at the hands of the National Park Service during the government shutdown. One could argue civil disobedience has been shutting down shutdown theater since it began— in D.C., in the Badlands, in Yellowstone—but at least one of these victories might be able to set a useful legal precedent to prevent at least some of Washington Monument Strategy in the future. It’s a political strategy that should die an ignominious death. It’s the opposite of public service. (It goes to show that fighting back is the right answer to overzealous bureaucrats. Hopefully when all the dust has cleared on this whole mess, there will be investigations of how the Park Service abused citizens, and steps will be taken to bar this from ever happening again. --

Social Security Increases Are Historically Small This Year
Excerpt: Preliminary figures suggest a benefit increase of roughly 1.5 percent, which would be among the smallest since automatic increases were adopted in 1975, according to an analysis by The Associated Press.
Excerpt: As I said earlier today in addressing the president’s tanking approval numbers, we did not anticipate how obnoxious and authoritarian Obama and congressional Democrats would be about refusing to negotiate and inflicting gratuitous pain on ordinary Americans — including American war heroes. But that is the natural fallout of statists being forced to defend an indefensible position. Obama has a long history of reversing himself, of moving 180 degrees from A to B with no discernible shame or ebb of indignation.
Debt Stalemate Breeds Frustration;
Heads Toward 'Dangerous Moment' US
Excerpt: With the
headed toward the
"dangerous moment" of default, uncertainty over the government
shutdown and debt ceiling continues, after talks to resolve the issues
folded Saturday between the Senate's top two leaders. Besides keeping
some 350,000 federal workers idle for nearly two weeks(apparently
non-essential~JB), the stalemate prompted a GOP prediction that the U.S.
might not make its credit obligations on Thursday. That led president of
the World Bank to warn of an international financial "crisis." United States
Excerpt: It’s made for
the story of an average American family man, captain of a cargo ship in
dangerous waters, his vessel overtaken by armed Somali pirates demanding
ransom, saving his crew by allowing himself to be removed from the boat and
taken hostage. All of this is the basis for “Captain Phillips,” starring Tom
Hanks as the titular, real-life hero. The only problem, say some members of the
real Capt. Phillips’ crew, is none of it is true. (This is very interesting, I
had no clue that the captain was other than some kind of real American
hero. But when the whole crew rises up in protest, I have to give them
some credibility. And of course for Hollywood
to change a story to make it a lot more popular with the people is hardly a
surprise. -- Hollywood

Excerpt: The liberal brown shirts are at it again. It's not enough that they inflict Obamacare on the majority of us who don't want it. It's not enough that organized religion is attacked unmercifully on a daily basis, or that we must embrace Black thuggism or be deemed "racist", or be open to gay marriage lest we be labelled homophobic. No, it is the ever present "creepiness" of how liberal nazi's invade our daily lives, and like a pitbull, refuse to let go of us when we are in their grasps.

Food Stamp shoppers pick Walmart bare after computer glitch gives them UNLIMITED funds. But who will end up footing the bill? By Alexandra Klausner
Excerpt: When [Walmart] employees noticed that cards weren't showing limits, they called the corporate office and were advised to allow shoppers to use the cards anyway. Eager shoppers quickly bought all the stores' meat and decimated their food stock. The lack of card limits was due to a power outage during a routine maintenance test by Xerox, an EBT vendor.

Michael Needham: The Strategist Behind the Shutdown: The 31-year-old Stanford grad explains how he outmaneuvered GOP leaders and why he thinks House Republicans can defund Obamacare. By Stephen Moore
Excerpt: 'I really believe we are in a great position right now," says Michael Needham, the 31-year-old president of Heritage Action, the lobbying arm of the nation's largest conservative think tank. By "we" he means the Republican Party and the conservative movement; their "great position" refers to the potential to win the political battle over the government shutdown. Though Texas Sen. Ted Cruz is the public face of the high-risk strategy to "defund" ObamaCare, the masterminds behind it are a new generation of young conservatives, chief among them Mr. Needham.
Excerpt: Before she was charged, Lanker-Simons hit the feminist warpath. “They’re treating this like there’s someone harboring violent sexual fantasies towards fellow students, and has stated a desire to act upon them,” she wrote on her blog. “Now, I know having the fantasies is not a crime—voicing them to threaten and intimidate, well, possibly a different story there."
Park Service Paramilitaries: The government has King John's idea of public lands. By Mark Steyn
Excerpt: If a government shuts down in the forest and nobody hears it, that’s the sound of liberty dying. The so-called shutdown is, as noted last week, mostly baloney: Eighty-three percent of the supposedly defunded government is carrying on as usual, impervious to whatever restraints the people’s representatives might wish to impose, and the 800,000 soi-disant “non-essential” workers have been assured that, as soon as the government is once again lawfully funded, they will be paid in full for all the days they’ve had at home. But the one place where a full-scale shutdown is being enforced is in
alleged “National Park Service,” a term of art that covers everything from
canyons and glaciers to war memorials and historic taverns. (Here's a nice
summary of what has gone on and how important it is. I am extremely upset
that I'm too sick to get up to DC tomorrow, where I would walk past The Wall in
total defiance of the Park Rangers/New SS, or possibly get arrested for
trying. This level of idiocy and assumption of powers that don't exist is
truly INSANE, and an offence to every American. Whether GOP, Democrat,
Libertarian, or nonpolitical, every one of us has a right to walk past public
memorials, most especially the ones paid for by citizens, without a dime from
the federal government. I am shocked and saddened that the Park Rangers, or at
least a lot of them, have willingly taken on the attitude and actions of a
repressive government force. That is so far from what their job
description is that it's mind-blowing they would start acting like the Nazi
SS. Much of what they have done is not just inappropriate, it's illegal, with
no foundation in any law. How can this have happened in this nation,
founded on the ideal of God-given rights and the rule of law? -- America ) Del

Sounds like CBS gets it. But beware. Note that the big media always get it when it is too late to do anything about the problem and only when the public outcry is too great to stifle with their disinformation.

Where was the story that government unemployment figures were a bald-faced lie, that there were 100 million unemployed, or 40% of the population! That a staggering trillion has been paid out by the government to people out of work and that there is no recovery, just a smokscreen of lies? Where is the truth? Some say the Soviets are the ones telling lies. Not this time.

Good Analysis: Slashed US Aid to

Excerpt: The long-awaited decision on the fate of

9, 2013. In a carefully worded – albeit muddled – message, State Department
spokeswoman Jen Psaki announced the “recalibration” of Egypt US assistance to Egypt,
laying out the areas in which the would and would not continue its
partnership. It seems that the President has been unable to ignore domestic
pressure to slash the $1.55 billion aid package to US given the Egyptian military
leadership’s excessive use of violence and the lack of progress toward civilian
governance. However, Cairo ’s
decision is risky, to say the least. Washington US
is an investment in regional stability. It is not charity, nor is it a gift to
be hastily withdrawn as soon as the political partners quarrel. Likewise, there
is no guarantee that the withdrawal of aid will forestall future atrocities or
prevent consolidation of an undemocratic system. In fact, the opposite is more
