Incoming from the weekend

New Reality Shows
Nerds: Jason's family fears the will never see him again when he gets the dreaded call to go to Washington and fix the Obamacare website.

Accountants: George discover his boss has been charging hooker visits to his expense account. Should he alert higher ups, or get in on the action?

Politicians: Congressman Smithers learns he has Terminal Cancer and decides to vote for something because it is right, even though there is no lobbying group for it to give him campaign contributions.

Welfare Queens: Tayshauna is so pleased to get her fifth free Obama-phone that she decides to vote an extra four times in the next election.

Great Column: Maybe Pain Will Teach You Millenials Not To Vote For Your Own Serfdom. By Kurt Schlichter
Excerpt: You Millenials voted for Obama by a margin of 28 percent, which will make it a lot easier for me to accept the benefits you will be paying for. We warned you that liberalism was a scam designed to take the fruits of your labor and transfer it to us, the older, established generation. Oh, and also to the couch-dwelling, Democrat-voting losers who live off of food stamps and order junk from QVC with their Obamaphones. You didn’t listen to us. Maybe you’ll listen to pain.

Excerpt: It’s as though two completely separate conversations have been going on. From day one, the health policy community has correctly seen the Affordable Care Act as an attempt to completely change the health care system. This isn’t even controversial. It’s accepted by all as an undisputed fact. However, no one has ever said this to the American people. In fact, the message of the Obama presidency — going all the way back to the 2008 campaign — was just the opposite. In that election, Barack Obama rejected Hillary Clinton’s call for an individual mandate (a proposal that would obviously affect everyone) in favor of his own proposal which appeared to mainly help those who couldn’t afford insurance. And how many people would that be? You could be forgiven if you thought it was about 10% of the population.

Washington Post Fact Checker: Obama’s pledge that ‘no one will take away’ your health plan. By Glenn Kessler
Excerpt: The president’s statements were sweeping and unequivocal — and made both before and after the bill became law. The White House now cites technicalities to avoid admitting that he went too far in his repeated pledge, which, after all, is one of the most famous statements of his presidency. The president’s promise apparently came with a very large caveat: “If you like your health care plan, you’ll be able to keep your health care plan — if we deem it to be adequate.” Four Pinocchios. (If Obama says, "If you like your religion, you can keep it," we're in big trouble. Okay, bigger trouble. ~Bob)

NYT Editorial Board: Obama Lying To You & Taking Away Your Insurance All For The Good
Excerpt: The mainstream media seems to be recovering itself, and it is an ugly thing to see. The New York Times Editorial Board, is as arrogant and condescending as it could be:

For consumers whose health premiums will go up under new law, sticker shock leads to anger
Excerpt: Americans who face higher ­insurance costs under President Obama’s health-care law are angrily complaining about “sticker shock,” threatening to become a new political force opposing the law even as the White House struggles to convince other consumers that they will benefit from it. The growing backlash involves people whose plans are being discontinued because the policies don’t meet the law’s more-stringent standards. They’re finding that many alternative policies come with higher premiums and deductibles.

Romney on Obamacare
A Facebook post by Mitt Romney. Obamacare and the MA Healthcare legislation passed under Mitt Romney are not the same. Big difference is that it is a state run program not a federal program as healthcare should be implemented, by the individual states! Obamacare is not only poorly “crafted” but the crux of the program and implementation is unfair, unaffordable and unworkable. January 1, 2014 will bring the increased taxes and costs for coverage from Obamacare! Hold on it is not going to be very good for the middle class despite the promises to the contrary. Mitt Romney: In the years since the Massachusetts health care law went into effect nothing has changed my view that a plan crafted to fit the unique circumstances of a single state should not be grafted onto the entire country. Beyond that, had President Obama actually learned the lessons of Massachusetts health care, millions of Americans would not lose the insurance they were promised they could keep, millions more would not see their premiums skyrocket, and the installation of the program would not have been a frustrating embarrassment. Health reform is best crafted by states with bipartisan support and input from its employers, as we did, without raising taxes, and by carefully phasing it in to avoid the type of disruptions we are seeing nationally. (I had been wondering when a comparison would come out. The RomneyCare system in MA has its share of problems, but compared to what we're seeing with ObamaCare, it's smooth sailing. Romney gets in a last word on Mr. Obama. --Del)

Romney accuses Obama of ‘fundamental dishonesty’ on health-care law
Excerpt: Mitt Romney stepped up his attack on President Obama’s health reform program on Sunday, accusing the president of “fundamental dishonesty” that has “undermined the foundation of his second term.”

Excerpt: A tech firm linked to a campaign-donor crony of President Obama not only got the job to help build the federal health-insurance Web site — but also is getting paid to fix it.
Anthony Welters, a top campaign bundler for Obama and frequent White House guest, is the executive vice president of UnitedHealth Group, which owns the software company now at the center of the ObamaCare Web-site fiasco. UnitedHealth Group subsidiary Quality Software Services Inc. (QSSI), which built the data hub for the ObamaCare system, has been named the new general contractor in charge of repairing the glitch-plagued

‘ABSOLUTE INSANITY’: Practicing physician slams Obamacare’s damaging effects on doctor-patient relationships [VIDEO]
Excerpt: Practicing physicians like orthopedic surgeon Dr. Robert Nirschl, who have watched politicians and health policy for decades, are experiencing first-hand the effects of Obamacare — something Nirschl calls “absolutely insanity.” “It is in fact socialized medicine, and the other issue is, of course, this is a huge transference of productive wealth,” the Washington, D.C.-area doctor said. He opposes the law for two primary reasons: 1) Americans are losing the insurance they had before, and 2) doctors must comply with a morass of paperwork requirements that adds no value to the doctor-patient relationship.

Exclusive: Users Warn of Security Risk, Breach of Privacy

Justin Hadley logged on to to evaluate his insurance options after his health plan was canceled. What he discovered was an apparent security flaw that disclosed eligibility letters addressed to individuals from another state. “I was in complete shock,” said Hadley, who contacted Heritage after becoming alarmed at the breach of privacy. (Feds violating their own HIPAA law; healthcare workers can be terminated for such breaches. Law from 1996. WHO CARES? Forward to oblivion! --Barb)

Court Strikes Down Obamacare’s Birth Control Mandate Over Religious Freedom Concerns
Excerpt: The influential D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals on Friday sided with an Ohio business that challenged Obamacare’s birth control mandate. The business owners—two brothers who own and operate Freshway Foods and Freshway Logistics in Sidney, Ohio—argued that providing such coverage would violate their Catholic beliefs. The appeals court panel ruled in their favor (via (The challenges to the Obamacare dictates on birth control parts of health care in conflict with religious beliefs are coming along. Here is another one where the court has ruled correctly. Sooner or later the Supremes will inherit this, and if they approve such decisions, it will be a very good day for the nation. --Del)

Four Legal Arguments Why ObamaCare is Bad Law & Ought be Overturned
Excerpt: Following is a list of four possible arguments to fight the case at court, in the legislature or in the court of public opinion. The notion that the people must accept all laws no matter how they were passed, or how injurious to the populace, or damaging to the economy, no matter the morality— is a patent fiction. No bad law should be allowed to stand on the fact that it is the result of a technicality, accident or bad deed, which lead to its imposture, and therefore, we must just learn to live with it. In fact, our Common Law heritage always taught that an unjust law is no law at all. Further, it also taught that citizens had a duty to defy unjust laws in the name of upholding liberty. (Nicely put together, and quite logical. Not that any of it would impress the real disciples, of course. --Del)

President was told healthcare website would work, official says
Excerpt: President Obama was assured that the healthcare insurance website was ready to launch on Oct. 1, even as private contractors and some administration officials knew the site had failed in early testing, a senior White House advisor said Sunday. (So they lied to the President nd still have jobs? Or he is again lying to us? ~Bob)

Expert: At least 129 million will ‘not be able to keep’ health care plan if Obamacare fully implemented
Excerpt: Conover also says it is hard to imagine President Obama didn’t know these statistics when he was flacking for his health care bill by promising Americans they could keep their health insurance if they liked it. “If President Obama himself believed this the first time he said it, he was poorly advised,” Conover said. “The problem is that he said it at least 24 times, most of which occurred after his own rule-writers had estimated that 49-80 percent of small employer plans would have lost their grandfather status by 2013, along with 34-64 percent of large employer plans. (Alinksy in his finest hour; the destruction of America’s infrastructure. --Barb)

Leno quote from The Patriot Post
Comedian Jay Leno: "Con artists are using confusion over ObamaCare to sign people up for what they call fake health insurance. The scammers lure victims with false promises -- they say stuff like, 'If you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan.'"

Which ObamaCare Shoe Will Drop Next? By Jeff Jacoby
Excerpt: As NBC News reported on Monday, “the administration knew that more than 40 to 67 percent of those in the individual market would not be able to keep their plans, even if they liked them.” ObamaCare regulations promulgated in 2010 were designed to force millions of consumers into getting more comprehensive, more expensive, insurance coverage than they want or need.

The Obamacare Exchanges: Nowhere Near As Competent As The Post Office. By Sally Pipes
Excerpt: They’re all marketing masterpieces compared to the rollout of Obamacare’s health insurance exchanges — particularly those accessible through, the portal operated by the federal government that ”serves” 36 states. Though these online marketplaces officially opened October 1, they’ve thus far proven abject failures in their stated mission of expanding the availability of health insurance.

The Pressure is On: Obamacare Site to Go Down Every Night for Repairs, New Privacy Concerns. Sarah Jean Seman
Excerpt: One day after the Health Insurance Marketplace closed for its longest maintenance work yet, the government announced the Obamacare website will be unavailable to applicants every night — with additional down times to be determined.

Vermont Paid $170 Million for Healthcare Exchange to Insure 40,000 People. By Christine Rousselle
Excerpt: Vermont, the first U.S. state to pass a law to implement single-payer, taxpayer-funded health insurance, has paid $170 million for its healthcare exchange website that does not work—and it only had to enroll 40,000 people. Vermont's exchange,, is nearly entirely non-functional, and the vast majority of prospective customers have found themselves unable to actually purchase the insurance plan they selected. Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin assured Vermonters that the site would be functional on Nov. 1, but as of today, Nov. 3, the only thing on the website is an error message.

ObamaCare, Deconstructed: The One Video That Tells the Truth About ObamaCare
This video is a superb work, hitting every detail of what was said that was incorrect, and telling us in plain language what is coming. And the short speech at the end, from a man now dead and gone, is more meaningful today than it was when he delivered it. --Del

Senate Democrats to White House: Fix Obamacare
Excerpt: Democratic senators have a warning for the White House: Fix Obamacare’s problems or put Senate seats at risk next year. In interviews, Democratic senators running in 2014, party elders and Senate leaders said the Obama administration must rescue the law from its rocky start before it emerges as a bigger political liability next year.

Obama Administration - Men Need Maternity Coverage!
Excerpt: I may have just found a new favorite congressman (or woman – I guess). Her name is Renee Ellmers and she is a representative from the Tar Heel State. You may be wondering what she’s done to earn my fandom… let’s just say she created quite a scene and left the Obama administration looking foolish.

Richard Nixon Resigned Over a Lie Nowhere Near as Big as Obamacare

Excerpt: Americans are losing coverage by political design. Yeah, in fact, the White House knew out there that 93 million Americans were gonna lose their policy. Richard Nixon resigned over a lie nowhere near this big. (But if you are of the Muslim inclination, it is fine to lie to the nonbelievers to further the cause of Islam. The destruction of America, the goal. Resignation? HA!! He is thinking about not leaving….Barb)

Rep. McCaul said SWAT team member told him of stand down order
Excerpt: “I just happened to bump into one of these SWAT team members outside the classified briefing room in the Capitol,” McCaul said on CNN’s “The Lead with Jake Tapper.” “And he told me about how—and I heard this firsthand—that his commanding SWAT team officer told them to stand down, that they were there eating breakfast and that he told them to stand down,” said McCaul, who promised his committee would hold hearings on responses to emergency situations and government clearances. Washington’s police union is investigating reports that members of the U.S. Capitol Police force were told to stand down instead of engaging the shooter involved in the attack. (Bodies, added to the piles of corpses to come. Just bumps on the road to the New Society, sheeple. Where is the investigation, eh? Lost in the smoke of the next Alinksy blow….destruction of available healthcare. This report from 09/23/13. Report on findings supposed to be produced 10/21/13. This is 11/04/13. Not a peep from media, even BBC, which broke this story. --Barb)

Israel ‘furious’ with White House for leak on Syria strike
Excerpt: Channel 2 speculated that the US might have leaked word of Israel’s attack as a warning to Israel to desist from such actions. Alternately, it might be seeking to signal that it was part of the tough policy designed to prevent a flow of sophisticated weaponry to Assad. But these and other possible explanations simply didn’t justify the leak, which the TV report described as “illogical” and “foolish.”

Putin’s Power and the Late Great United States. By Daniel Greenfield 
Excerpt: After a suicide bombing in the Moscow subway by a Muslim terrorist, Vladimir Putin said, “Russia doesn’t conduct negotiations with terrorists — it destroys them.”
The last American president to say something like that and mean it was Ronald Reagan, who also defeated Putin’s old bosses. The current administration, which frees Taliban leaders and makes concessions to Iran for the sake of what it calls “Smart Power,” couldn’t defeat a wet paper bag.

How Obama Abandoned Iraq. By Arnold Ahlert 
Excerpt: President Obama’s facility for lying has taken center stage once again, as Americans grapple with the reality that they in fact can’t keep their health insurance if they like it. Yet while they remain focused on that debacle, another series of declarations made by the president, namely that al Qaeda was “on the run” and near “defeat,” is looking equally deceitful. Last Friday, Obama and Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki met in an effort to deal with what is being characterized as a “bloody resurgence” of al Qaeda in Iraq (AQI). “Unfortunately, al Qaeda has still been active and has grown more active recently,” Obama was forced to admit to reporters.

Obama 'Matrix' -- a world of deniability: Column. By Tom Rogan, USA Today
Excerpt: But nearly five years into office -- after Fast and Furious, after Benghazi, after the snooping on Associated Press phone records, after the IRS political vendetta and now the Obamacare website mess, President Obama has shown his preference for a different kind of "buck" -- with a deliberately amorphous Constitution. By his own choice, Obama has become the "know-nothing" president.

Excerpt: In other words, to Obama these are not really lies, because he has no values, religious or otherwise, that make them so. … First, it’s worth noting that sociopathic lies — or lies that even tend toward the sociopathic — can be immensely destructive to humanity. … I suspect that Obama’s core belief — his key religious value, if you will — is an American form of taqiyya — the Muslim dictate that it is permissible to lie to non-believers for the preservation of Islam. 

Excerpt: New reports from the Department of Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General reveal that Medicare wrongly paid out millions of dollars in benefits to dead patients, illegal immigrants and dead doctors. According to the reports in 2011 Medicare paid $23 million in services for dead patients, spent $25 million on dead doctors between 2009-2011, and provided $29 million in prescription drugs for illegal immigrants from 2009-2011. Under federal law, none of these categories of people are eligible for Medicare benefits or payments.

Excerpt: Talk about deja vu all over again, Kathleen Sebelius is the latest in the growing list of Obama Administration officials who when caught wrongdoing simply politically give the American people the finger. …Arrogantly, Sebelius has refused to accept responsibility for her gross incompetence, even attempting to pass the blame on to the public and Republicans. Further poking her finger in our eye, Sebelius boldly announced that she does not work for We The People.

Navy SEALs ordered to remove ‘don’t tread on me’ Navy Jack from uniforms
Excerpt: The Navy Jack is the ‘don’t tread on me’ flag, one that has earned a revered place in America’s naval history and a beloved place in sailor’s hearts, through its use for over two centuries. This symbol of America’s naval ferocity has spanned our country’s entire existence, flying from the masts of the Continental Navy during the war of independence, to today’s War on Terror. In fact, an amendment to the Navy code called SECNAV Instruction 10520.6 clearly states that as of 31 May 2002 all ships are to fly the flag throughout the duration of the War on Terror.

Christians in Iran Get 80 Lashes for Drinking Communion Wine
Excerpt: An Iranian court has sentenced four Christians to 80 lashes each for drinking wine during a communion service. They were also convicted of possessing a receiver and a satellite antenna. Two of the convicted were seized by the Iranian government on December 31, 2012 in a home church crackdown.

Women in Combat
First I must say I enjoy our blog and have even purchased and read a couple of your books. In regard to your comment today about the NFL having 3 female players per team my thoughts on having equal opportunity for females in the combat arms should be tested at the next Army Navy football game. Require one team, having been in the Army I would suggest Navy, be required to have half of the team on the field at all times be female. No other rule changes. And we see how that works out. --CW

Government-Inspired Gentrification: For affordable housing and real growth, cities should nix rent control and harmful regulation. By Scott Beyer
Excerpt: “What we haven’t figured out,” she said, “is the question of gentrification.”
Advertisement Her term referred to the displacement of New York’s poor residents by the professional class that is moving into Harlem, certain neighborhoods of Brooklyn, and elsewhere. This has increased rents, uprooting many households and sending people in search of cheaper neighborhoods, sometimes outside the city altogether. The term “gentrification” points to the class problem that increasingly consumes not only New York, but also much of urban America.

The REAL costs of EPA’s laws and regulations: They often impair our lives, livelihoods, liberties, living standards, life styles and life spans
Excerpt: Far too often, the rules are based on speculative health and environmental claims, cherry-picked studies, dismissal of analyses that contradict agency assertions, and computer models that reflect unfounded assumptions and agenda-driven rule-making. Many scientists challenge EPA’s claim that carbon dioxide controls climate change; point to solar, cosmic, oceanic and other factors the agency ignores; and note that higher concentrations of atmospheric CO2 spur plant growth and green our planet.

Excerpt: Well, the case is becoming even more clear; Generation X have got to be the worst parents in generations. Today the College Board released the same sad statistics; only 23 percent of American high school students were able to pass all four segments of the SAT, which qualify them for math, science, reading and english courses in college. Only 43 percent passed even one of the SAT categories. The College Board reports those passing at least one SAT category have remained stuck on that 43% for the past five years.

Obama’s new climate council to regulate economy
Excerpt: President Barack Obama has given the nation a new “Council on Climate Preparedness and Resilience” that expands government bureaucrats’ role in how Americans use their lands, energy, waters and property. Obama announced the executive order Friday, the day after Halloween. The order is titled “Preparing the United States for the Impacts of Climate Change.” (Check out Stalin’s “collectivization.” Sure has that “flexibility” after that 2nd “election.” --Barb)

FCC to police and question media, websites regarding content
Excerpt: We knew this was coming, and it has arrived. An assault via the FCC on bloggers, conservative radio, and any other media that the regime perceives as a threat.There were rumbles of it some years ago, but now, with nothing to lose, the first salvo is launched. (Typical Alinsky technique; keep ‘em reeling. --Barb)

Inside China: Nuclear submarines capable of widespread attack on U.S.
Excerpt: Chinese state-run media revealed for the first time this week that Beijing’s nuclear submarines can attack American cities as a means to counterbalance U.S. nuclear deterrence in the Pacific. On Monday, leading media outlets including China Central TV, the People’s Daily, the Global Times, the PLA Daily, the China Youth Daily and the Guangmin Daily ran identical, top-headlined reports about the “awesomeness” of the People's Liberation Army navy’s strategic submarine force.

Officials: 2 French Journalists Killed in Mali
Excerpt: Gunmen abducted and killed two French radio journalists on assignment in northern Mali, French and Malian officials said. It was not immediately clear who carried out the killings, though suspicion quickly fell on al-Qaida's branch in the region.

Famous Comic Flays Obama As Lying 'Maniac' 'If he wasn't the president, he'd be in jail or in a sanitarium'
Excerpt: Mason continued: “He has a whole country walking around dizzy wondering who we’re listening to. If this is a president of a country, how come he’s the only one in America who doesn’t seem to know what’s going on here?“Never did I expect a guy like this, the head of a country, to blatantly lie to your face, and then not only lie to your face, then lie about the fact that he never lied. (Expect the PC Hounds of Hell to be unleashed on this man for speaking up…Hope he does not end up like the impersonator/comedian and Breitbart…Barb)

In court, defiant Mursi says he still Egypt's president
Excerpt: Mursi, 62, who spent time in Mubarak's jails before becoming Egypt's first freely elected president after the country's "Arab Spring" revolution, found himself behind bars again this year facing charges of inciting violence that could carry the death penalty.
It is the second time in just over two years that an overthrown president has been in court in Egypt. The trial is taking place in the same venue where Mubarak has also been facing a retrial for complicity in killing protesters.

For Clinton and Obama, a Common Ideological Touchstone
Excerpt: The job offer to "Miss Hillary Rodham, Wellesley College" was dated Oct. 25, 1968, and signed by Saul D. Alinsky, the charismatic community organizer who believed that the urban poor could become their own best advocates in a world that largely ignored them. Alinsky thought highly of 21-year-old Rodham, a student government president who grew up in the Chicago suburbs. She was in the midst of a year-long analysis of Alinsky's aggressive mobilizing tactics, and he was searching for "competent political literates" to move to Chicago to build grass-roots organizations. (She is not an alternative to a continuing reign of Obama (rumored being felt out under pretenses of created “national emergency.”) She would be a relay handoff of the same. --Barb)

Excerpt: Who is Hillary Rodham Clinton? We have to ask because this woman is now set to run for the highest office in the land. Of course, there are many things to remind the American people about concerning Hillary Clinton, including her most notorious scandal concerning what she did or did not do when it came to the operations in Benghazi. 

Obama, Hillary Clinton, Saul Alinsky and Rules For Radicals
Excerpt: …..Your adversaries have memorized it and are using the principles within its covers to destroy our great republic. Make no mistake, the Progressive Liberals or Radicals’ goal is to tear down the republic and shred the Constitution. The problem is, they have nothing to replace it with; they are only bent on destruction.

Professors for Jew-Hate. By Asaf Romirowsky 
Excerpt: Today, however, academic freedom is incorrectly equated with unrestricted faculty free speech and the “correlative obligations” or presenting “divergent opinions” have been swept away. As the late Gary Tobin put it, “Academic freedom has evolved from protection against political influence to job security — an employment contract rather than an intellectual contract.” Nowhere is this more true than in the case of the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement against Israel and Israeli academics.

Agencies can’t always tell who’s dead and who’s not, so benefit checks keep coming
Excerpt: In the past few years, Social Security paid $133 million to beneficiaries who were deceased. The federal employee retirement system paid more than $400 million to retirees who had passed away. And an aid program spent $3.9 million in federal money to pay heating and air-conditioning bills for more than 11,000 of the dead. (Can’t say who is a citizen to vote, either, and furthermore, WHO CARES? Disenfranchise everyone and make the whole thing bogus; worked in the past. But they are nationalizing your life and all your secrets—that won’t be secret any more. --Barb)

Chris Christie’s Islamist Problem: A Few Things You Should Know About Chris Christie. By Janet Levy
Excerpt: New Jersey Governor Chris Christie held an Iftar dinner in the Governor’s Mansion in 2012 and invited his “friend” Imam Mohammed Qatanani, a self-admitted member of Hamas and a defender of a charity that provided funds to children of suicide bombers. Christie referred to Qatanani as “a man of great good will” and defended him when the Department of Homeland Security attempted to deport him for not disclosing his arrest and conviction in Israel in 1993 for involvement with Hamas. Qatanani publicly ranted against Jews and in support of Hamas on the eve of his deportation hearing. (Christie is too obviously one of them. NOT one of us. He has nothing but contempt for the little guy. --Don Hank)

Long but interesting: An Evidence-Based Approach to Pricing CO2 Emissions. By Ross McKitrick
Excerpt: The idea of carbon taxes has been around for a long time, but many questions and misconceptions about them remain. Before going into detail about the concept of a temperature-indexed tax, it is helpful first to spell out some economic fundamentals of carbon taxes in general. The basic mechanism involves building a tax per tonne of carbon dioxide (CO²) emissions into the price of all forms of fossil energy (oil, coal and natural gas). CO² is uniquely suitable for taxing in this way because in almost all cases there are no abatement options: once burned, the entire carbon content of the fuel ends up as CO² in the air. 

Stop the World, I Want to Get Off. By Burt Prelutsky 
Excerpt: Politico columnist Roger Simon recently wrote an article in which he declared that Republicans are haters. That was after he opened the piece by saying he hoped John Boehner and Ted Cruz would drown. He then went on to label those of us on the right as racists. You would have to be as pompous a pinhead as Simon not to realize that when it comes to being hateful, nobody can beat a liberal fathead at his own game.

Last Year President Obama Reportedly Told His Aides That He's 'Really Good At Killing People'
Excerpt: This will not go over well for the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize winner.

McAuliffe-Backed Lt. Governor Candidate Refuses to Shake Black Opponent's Hand
Excerpt: National civil rights leaders reacted to Democratic candidate for Virginia Lieutenant Governor Ralph Northam refusing on camera to shake hands with his Republican opponent—right after confirming that he wants to massively expand government healthcare and not denying allegations that he thinks traditional Christians have no right to act according to their traditional-marriage views.

Archie Bunker Saw Obama Coming
Excerpt: When I was in college I read Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged and was blown away by what I found in Rand’s magnum opus. The liberal media often makes light of Rand’s seminal work and the way many conservatives revere the tome. I find that they often miss the point, though. As a Christian, I find many faults with Rand’s perspective and her philosophy of objectivism… but there is still much good in what she wrote.

Black Mob Violence at Austin – Happy Halloween. By Colin Flaherty
Excerpt: Austin Hipsters on black mob violence: ‘We are color blind. The white hipsters of Austin want us to know that race had nothing to do with the 200 black people who fought, destroyed property and threw rocks at police a few days before Halloween. White people do it all the time, said Katie.

Excerpt: It's been seven months now since I cut the cable cord. I can honestly say I do not miss it a bit. In fact, after being a Cox Cable "customer zombie" for twenty years, taking it in the rear every year as they raised my rates, I feel liberated! These days, after two decades of screwing me, and never rewarding me for long term loyalty, Cox has been sending me offer after offer, as much as half of what I was paying, if I would only come back to them. I'm tempted not at all. Once I dropped cable I went down to Walmart and got myself a $7 dollar indoor antenna....and discovered that I get 57 over the air channels, all of them far more crisp and clear than the picture Cox Cable was giving me. I later learned why; Cox Cable uses their bandwidth to "split" the signal over their transmission lines so that they can cram more QVC and Home Shopping Network and a dozen religious stations and another dozen Hispanic stations, all of which I neither want or need.

Ed Schultz Tries To Prove ‘Fact’ That Conservatives Control 90% of ‘Electronic Media’
Excerpt: Ed Schultz claimed that conservative ownership over nearly every media entity is part of the reason why the recent coverage on Obamacare has been unfavorable. “Fact of the matter is 90 percent of the electronic media which is owned in this country is owned by conservatives,” the MSNBC host claimed on his show on Wednesday evening. While Schultz conceded that conservative media such as talk radio have been effective in their messaging, he blamed it for “putting people in a very entrenched way of thinking.” Without the Fairness Doctrine, he whined, the Left doesn’t have an opportunity to broadcast their views which could ultimately cripple causes such as Obamacare (Blatantly untrue: liberal radio stations that have been around didn't have the listenership nor sponsors to survive. Obamacare is crippling itself - talk radio didn't do it - Obama did, Fox didn't do it - Obama did. --JB).

Penn: Let’s go to the Tea Party influence on Congress and that stuff. I think there’s a mental health problem in Congress. This would be solved by committing them by executive order, I think, because these are our American brothers and sisters. (Read book in the 1970’s, “Will the Soviet Union Survive Until 1984?” written by Andrei Almalrik. He was a dissident. He described how those who opposed the Communist regime were labeled “mentally ill” or “unstable” and sent off to usually Siberia to a “hospital” where they were kept sedated under drugs and in restraints. Yes, this is what Sean Penn, the foaming-at-the-mouth mad progressive who runs around with dictators suggests be done BY EXECUTIVE DECREE to Americans who do not agree with the Regime. Very, very scary, folks. --Barb)

Obama uses executive order in sweeping takeover of nation's climate change policies
excerpt: Through the stroke of a pen, President Obama on Friday used his executive powers to elevate and take control of climate change policies in an attempt to streamline sustainability initiatives – and potentially skirt legislative oversight and push a federal agenda on states. The executive order establishes a task force of state and local officials to advise the administration on how to respond to severe storms, wildfires, droughts and other potential impacts of climate change. All but three of those appointed are Democrats. 

Do You Still Think of Vietnam?
Excerpt: A couple of years ago someone asked me if I still thought about Vietnam. I nearly laughed in their face. How do you stop thinking about it? Every day for the past forty years, I wake up with it- I go to bed with it. This was my response: “Yeah, I think about it. I can’t stop thinking about it. I never will. But, . I’ve also learned to live with it. I’m comfortable with the memories. I’ve learned to stop trying to forget and learned to embrace it. It just doesn’t scare me anymore.” (My tours were relatively benign having served both of them at Danang. Other than the frequent rocket and mortar attacks at night which mostly targeted the flight line area where I worked, I came home unscathed. No Purple Hearts, no awards for heroism. Just the "I was there" medals and ribbons. But I did my job and I am not, nor have I ever been ashamed of my contribution. However, a lot of Marines I have met can very much relate to this article. --MasterGuns)

The Media Kowtow. Why is the coverage of China’s government. By Mark Hemingway
Excerpt: Apparently the Post has been carrying China Watch as a special advertising section for some time now. Underneath the masthead, in barely legible letters, it reads: “This supplement, prepared by China Daily, People’s Republic of China, did not involve the news or editorial departments of the Washington Post.” If you are blessedly unfamiliar with China Daily, it disseminates the news that the Communist government of China thinks is vital for Thought Leaders Inside the Beltway. The editors of this publication believe that life in contemporary China is full of sunshine and, better yet, business opportunities.

'Healthy Ho's Party': ObamaCare Registration Drive For Prostitutes
Excerpt: Just when you thought you've seen everything, along comes what's called a "Healthy Ho's Party. As reported by CNN Money, this is what a "sex worker" in San Francisco called her effort to register others in her "profession" in ObamaCare (video follows with commentary):

Pentagon training manual: white males have unfair advantages. By Todd Starnes
Excerpt: A controversial 600-plus page manual used by the military to train its Equal Opportunity officers teaches that "healthy, white, heterosexual, Christian" men hold an unfair advantage over other races, and warns in great detail about a so-called "White Male Club." (This is another one of those things that comes under the heading of "You can't make this stuff up". An Army manual that dwells at length on racism as the major force behind everything that happens in society is not exactly the way to help whatever actual problems still exist in our society. Yes, we are not perfect, and we aren't going to be perfect anytime soon either, but emphasizing so much about racism is the way to make things worse, not better. This is monumentally stupid and counterproductive, and one more example of PC being shoved down the throats of our military. --Del)

Rep. McCaul said SWAT team member told him of stand down order

Excerpt: “I just happened to bump into one of these SWAT team members outside the classified briefing room in the Capitol,” McCaul said on CNN’s “The Lead with Jake Tapper.” “And he told me about how—and I heard this firsthand—that his commanding SWAT team officer told them to stand down, that they were there eating breakfast and that he told them to stand down,” said McCaul, who promised his committee would hold hearings on responses to emergency situations and government clearances. Washington’s police union is investigating reports that members of the U.S. Capitol Police force were told to stand down instead of engaging the shooter involved in the attack. (Bodies, added to the piles of corpses to come. Just bumps on the road to the New Society, sheeple. Where is the investigation, eh? Lost in the smoke of the next Alinksy blow….destruction of available healthcare. This report from 09/23/13. Report on findings supposed to be produced 10/21/13. This is 11/04/13. Not a peep from media, even BBC, which broke this story. ~Bob)
