  • obama is beside the point. They don’t even like obama anymore. Nothing could be more obvious. Almost nobody does. But they won’t say so in public because that would mean that they would be revealed as fools who believed the most banal tripe imaginable. It would also mean admitting obama never really existed, that they invented him. He was their projection. obama is the creation of the New York Times, et al. Without them he would never have happened and they know it.

    So the media are left in an untenable position. If you say obama is a mistake, then you yourself are a mistake. Who wants that?

    No wonder they won’t investigate the scandals. No wonder they won’t report any of this. They are too ashamed of themselves to speak.

    That is already evident in the response to the IRS scandal. It is metastasizing rapidly despite the near blackout by the MSM. In one recent poll 63 percent of Democrats think the IRS intentionally destroyed the emails. Democrats. How’d they find that out? Not from the New York Times.

    Get ready for endless tantrums of many sorts. When moral narcissism of the level we have been experiencing breaks down, anything can happen. The media will do almost anything to preserve their fragile selves. Evasion, distraction and outright lies will be continuous and may reach unprecedented levels.

    The mainstream media has been in trouble for years, but their silence about the ills of the obama administration has finished them off as never before. They will stumble on, but from here on in they will be, as was said of the U.S. during the Vietnam era, a “pitiful, helpless giant.”

  • Only obama's caddy approves of him, that's because he has one of the few full time jobs around.

  • obamacare Employees Behind Failed Oregon Exchange Now Getting Cushy Bonuses
    Daily Caller ^ | 6/24/14 | Sarah Hurtubise

    Now that Oregon’s obamacare exchange has entirely given up on fixing or running its own obamacare website, the state exchange is handing out hundreds of thousands of dollars in taxpayer funding as bonuses to employees that stick around until the federal government takes over.

    “Many of the employees who voluntarily left Cover Oregon had key skills that are not easily replaced both in IT and in health care laws and regulations,” interim director Clyde Hamstreet wrote to the exchange’s board, Oregon Live reports. “We cannot afford to keep losing valuable employees if we are to complete the workload for the remainder of 2014 and the IT transition project.”

    Thirty-eight employees will be awarded bonuses worth one to three months pay to convince them to stay on with the exchange through the next nine months. All remaining 163 employees will be eligible for a bonus worth two weeks of government pay if they remain at the exchange through March 15.

    IRS Chief Testifies

    He complained that it would take $10 to $30 million to upgrade IRS computers to retain all its emails and documents; yet, the agency paid $89 million in bonuses last year and has an $1.8 billion IT budget. This guy is making of fool of himself.

    More Babies Aborted Than Jobs Created

  • John Kerry (lib loon spokesperson) said on Sunday the United States would not choose who rules in Baghdad, but added that Washington had noted the dissatisfaction among Kurds, Sunnis and some Shi'ites with Maliki's leadership.

    Meanwhile, in the good old US of A, the dissatisfaction with obama's leadership is not noted by the same lib loons.

  • Hillary Clinton has serious heart problems, according to Ed Klein in his book. That leaves the democrats with no one to fill the gap. The best they can come up with is the Mexican mayor of San Antonio, TX and the only way this guy can win is if hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens vote for him. And obama is in the process of delivering those votes. The boarders are open and illegals are pouring in by the minute. It's a total act of desperation.

  • Now we will see what difference it makes.

    So, you are saying the last time the U.S. Homeland Missile Defense Program worked properly is when Bush was president. Then, along comes obama and nothing works right. Thanks. You really are stupid.

    Chemical weapons produced at the Al Muthanna facility in Iraq, which Isis today, 6/19/14, seized, are believed to have included mustard gas, Sarin, Tabun, and VX. (ISIS consists of the former military of Hussein, Saddam, not obama).

  • The Telegraph ^ | June 19, 2014 | Elahe Izadi

    The remaining WMD's from Saddam Hussein's regime are stored in two sealed bunkers, both located at the Al Muthanna Chemicals Weapons Complex, a large site in the western desert some 80km north west of Baghdad.

    This was the principal manufacturing plant for both chemical agents and munitions during Saddam Hussein’s rule.

    Thousands of tonnes of chemical weapons were produced, stored and deployed by the Saddam Hussein regime. Iraq used these weapons during the Iran - Iraq War (1980 to 1988) and against the Kurds in Halabja in 1988.

  • Obama Official: The Obamacare "Bailout" Of Insurers Will Be Financed By A New Tax On Everyone's Plan
    Forbes ^ | June 19, 2014 | By Dr. Scott Gottlieb

    For months, there have been assertions that the mechanisms embedded in obamacare, designed to offset losses that insurance companies will take this year on their exchange business, amount to a bailout of the insurance industry.

    At the same time, it wasn’t clear where the money to pay for these “risk adjustments” would come from in the first place.

    Now we know where the “bailout” money is going to come from. It will be paid for by a new tax levied on the insurance companies (and paid for by charging more in the form of higher insurance premiums)..

    Since obamacare health plans were prevented from pricing products to reflect true risk, they were always going to have atypically high cost, and in turn, losses. The red ink was inevitable. Now all of us will be forced to pay for it, whether we have an obamacare plan or not. That new tax will be passed onto everyone in the form of higher premiums. (And you thought insurance premiums would go down $2500 per year.)

    Today I swung my front door wide open and placed my Remington 30.06 right in the doorway. I left 6 shells beside it, then left it alone and went about my business. While I was gone, the mailman delivered my mail, the neighbor boy across the street mowed the yard, a girl walked her dog down the street, and quite a few cars stopped at the stop sign near the front of our house. After about an hour, I checked on the gun. It was still sitting there, right where I had left it. It hadn't moved itself outside. It certainly hadn't killed anyone, even with the numerous opportunities it had been presented to do so. In fact, it hadn't even loaded itself. Well you can imagine my surprise, with all the media hype about how dangerous guns are and how they kill people Either the media is wrong or I'm in possession of the laziest gun in the world.

    Well, I'm off to check on my spoons. I hear they're making people fat.

    Oh, by the way, the United States is 3rd in Murders throughout the World. But if you take out Chicago , Detroit, Washington DC and New Orleans , the United States is 4th from the bottom for murders. These 4 Cities also have the toughest Gun Control Laws in the United States . ALL 4 are controlled by Democrats.

    It would be absurd to draw any conclusions from this data – right?

  • CHECKLIST MEDICINE: Value-Based Payments to Doctors
    CCHC ^ | 6-18-14 | Twila Brase

    Your doctor may soon not be paid, unless government or health insurers think the service had "value." This obamacare mandate intends to drive physician compliance with government-defined "cost and quality measurements." This is " checklist medicine," says Galen Institute. A new McKesson opinion research study, The 2014 State of Value-Based Reimbursement shows that within five years two-thirds of payments for care are expected to be made based on value.

    obama's FDA, perhaps still smarting from the recent artisanal cheese kerfuffle, is setting its sights on a bigger target: salt.

    “The current level of [sodium] consumption is really higher than it should be,” said FDA commissioner Margaret Hamburg. That’s why they’re preparing “voluntary guidelines” for the food industry encouraging them to stay below certain salt levels. (Voluntary today, mandatory tomorrow.)

  • So, the trademark worth billions of dollars is unregistered and unprotected thanks to obama and the lib loons that think like him. This country is in serious trouble.
