    a giant rubber band. All for $125,000. How can you go wrong.

  • New York Times best-selling author and long-time journalist Ed Klein said that Valerie Jarrett has been engaging in secret meetings with Sen. Elizabeth Warren in recent months, giving rise to speculations that the Massachusetts political newcomer is actually the administration’s choice to head the White House in 2016.

    obama’s flimsy lies in defense of his handling of the Secret Service prostitution scandal have been characterized by the Washington Post as “Demonstrably False.” This truthful statement from a leading media outlet has been a longtime coming; but those of us who have been honest observers of the miserable failure in the White House say: Better late than never.

    obama has lied to us from the first day he entered public life from wherever he came from. If Franklin Roosevelt’s Administration was the, “New Deal” and John Kennedy’s was the “New Frontier,” the clown obama’s Administration must be labeled “Demonstratively False.”

    Here are some of the “Demonstratively False” lies from obama proving his Administration deserves this label.

    “If you like your health care plan/ doctor you can keep your health care plan/doctor.”

    “We agree[d] on reforms that will finally reduce the costs of health care. Families will save on their premiums…”

    “My healthcare plan will save each American family $2,500 a year.”

    “My administration is committed to creating an unprecedented level of openness...

    "obamacare will not add a cent to the deficit"

    "On day one of my administration I will close Gitmo"

    This time with the insurance companies. Insurers who agree to sell policies on the new exchanges are reimbursed by the federal government if they incur heavy losses during the first few years of the law’s implementation. This is obama's feeble attempt to keep insurance rates low at the taxpayers' expense. The clown is quite deceptive, huh.

    Where did he say "minorities aren't citizens"? You have a tendency to add something to someone's post and then criticize him for what you have added. Nice try, though, but it doesn't work here.

    The semi-retired clown played his 200th round of golf in office. Way to go, obama.

  • If you have to get your parents' permission to go on a field trip or take an aspirin in school, but not to get an abortion, you live in a country run by lib loons, a.k.a idiots.

    Better yet, wait until the cop hiding behind the bush gets a hold of this baby.

  • Sell high today, buy low in the future.

  • Financial Times ^

    A paradox haunts America’s first black president. African-American wealth has fallen further under obama than under any president since the Depression. Yet they are the only group that still gives him high ratings. So meagre is obama’s national approval rating that embattled Democrats have made him unwelcome in states that twice swept him to power. Those who have fared worst under the clown are the ones who love him the most. You would be hard-pressed to find a better example of perception-driven politics. As the Reverend Kevin Johnson asked in 2013: “Why are we so loyal to a president who isn’t loyal to us?”

    The problem has taken on new salience with the resignation of Eric Holder. America’s first black attorney-general has tried to correct the gulag-sized disparities in prison sentencing between blacks and whites. His exit leaves just two African-Americans in obama’s cabinet. Given the mood among Republicans, it is hard to imagine the US Senate confirming a successor to Mr Holder who shares his priorities.

  • WND ^ | 10/05/14 | E. Michael Maloof

    Two retired U.S. Army generals have blasted obama’s decision to send U.S. troops to West Africa to battle the Ebola virus epidemic, saying the military is to fight wars, not disease. (Yet another trick by the commander-in-chief-community-organizer to destroy morale in the military. There are not many people named Hussein who want an American military with high morale, ya know.)

    In exclusive interviews with WND, retired U.S. Army Lt. Gen. William “Jerry” Boykin and retired U.S. Army Maj. Gen. Paul E. Vallely condemned obama’s decision, as U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel approved up to 4,000 boots on the ground from a previous ceiling of 3,000.

    US oil production goes through the roof. ff told us this would have no effect on oil prices. Today, Saudi Arabia warned OPEC members to get used to low oil prices for a long time. Meanwhile, the Canadians are working around the Keystone pipeline problem. They are building a pipeline to the east coast and shipping oil via freighter to refineries in Texas and Louisiana. No pipeline jobs for Americans, lots of pipeline jobs for Canadians. ff, what an idiot.

  • and then preached the opposite. Another lib loon throws obama under the bus.

    Senator Elizabeth Warren, always outspoken on the tension between Main Street and Wall Street, took shots Sunday at a system she said is "rigged" against the little guy.

    In an interview in Salon, Warren, who has said she doesn't plan to seek the 2016 presidential nomination, said fellow Democrats including obama have not done enough to help consumers. (Consumers are also employees and obama hasn't done much for them, either.)

  • Leaning Forward, MSNBC Loses Ground to Rival CNN
    NY Times ^ | 10/12/2014 | Bill Carter

    Rachel Maddow, the biggest star on the MSNBC cable network, just posted her lowest quarterly ratings results ever.

    “Morning Joe,” MSNBC’s signature morning program, scored its second-lowest quarterly ratings, reaching an average of just 87,000 viewers in the key news demographic group.

    And “Ronan Farrow Daily,” the network’s heavily promoted new afternoon show, which stars a 26-year-old Rhodes Scholar with a high-profile Hollywood lineage, has been largely a dud.

    Though it has mostly happened quietly, which may be a comment on the cable network’s larger status in the media landscape, MSNBC has seen its ratings hit one of the deepest skids in its history, with the recently completed third quarter of 2014 generating some record lows.

    World View: American-led air attacks are failing. Jihadis are close to taking Kobani, in Syria – and in Iraq western Baghdad is now under serious threat

    America's plans to fight Islamic State are in ruins as the militant group's fighters come close to capturing Kobani and have inflicted a heavy defeat on the Iraqi army west of Baghdad.

    The US-led air attacks launched against Islamic State (also known as Isis) on 8 August in Iraq and 23 September in Syria have not worked. President Obama's plan to "degrade and destroy" Islamic State has not even begun to achieve success. In both Syria and Iraq, Isis is expanding its control rather than contracting.

  • The rates would have risen more had obama not saved ya $2500. LOL

    State regulators approved significant premium hikes on Louisiana and Iowa’s obamaCare exchanges this week, with average increases in each state reaching double digits.

    The increases came in the final weeks of tight Senate races in each state that could decide whether Republicans can take Senate control from Democrats, according to the story by The Daily Caller.

    In Louisiana, 2015 plans will be much costlier, according to The Times-Picayune. Blue Cross Blue Shield of Louisiana, the exchange’s largest insurer, is increasing prices 18.3 percent to 19.7 percent for three different plans. More than 50,000 customers are currently covered by those plans. However, the insurer isn’t hiking rates on customers with narrowed networks in New Orleans, Baton Rouge or Shreveport.

    Humana will up its exchange premium rates by 9.9 percent, after backing down from its initial proposal of 15.5 percent. Vantage Health Plan, like Blue Cross Blue Shield, is going ahead with its initial proposal, a 15.89 percent hike.

    Iowa also approved large rate hikes Thursday. CoOportunity adjusted its premium hikes up to 19 percent on average. The other top exchange insurer, Coventry will increase rates by 8.7 percent.

    The race for Iowa’s open Senate seat in November has pitted Republican Joni Ernst, who’s been heavily critical of the health-care law, against Democrat Rep. Bruce Braley, who supports obamaCare.

    I sounds like you have been doing a lot of begging.

  • Let's not forget rising deductibles, rising out of pocket expenses, and rising co-pays. My fellow Iowans, remember this on election day.

    BigGovernment ^ | Oct. 9, 2014 | Wynton Hall

    Thousands of Iowans are now facing double-digit health insurance premium hikes due to obamacare.

    On Wednesday, the Des Moines Register reported that the state's insurance commissioner has approved Des Moines-based Wellmark to hike its rates between 11.9% and 14.5%.

    The premium spike will affect 19,000 Iowans.

    "That increase is for individual policyholders who have obamacare-compliant plans," reports the Register.

    CoOportunity, one of the main companies offering health insurance on the obamacare exchange, will increase its rates 19%.
