    The Federal Government lies as a matter of policy and habit. Occasionally  "legitimate" media detect and dissect the lies, but they more often simply report them as true. The resultant "conspiracy theories" are often more believable than the Government lies which spawned them. [youtube] Video linkFrom Benghazi to ObamaCare to the Israel - Palestinian "peace process" to the Iran Scam to the Bundy Ranch standoff and beyond, "our" Government has lied to us repeatedly and there have been no signs that it intends to stop or even to slow down. The lies have rarely been for legitimate national security reasons and have far more often been to promote...

    Climate change is having a big impact on both the earth's natural systems and how people live, according to the most comprehensive assessment of the threat of a warming planet done so far. The second part in a four-part report by the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change warns that the problem will become increasingly difficult to manage, with possible threats to everything from the food supply to coral reefs and low-lying coastal areas. "The striking feature of observed impacts is that they are occurring from the tropics to the poles, from small islands to large continents, and from the...

    Pollster Celinda Lake's advice to fellow Democrats to take a midway position in the 2014 congressional campaigns is flawed because it can't be sold as honest. Reacting to results from her bipartisan Battleground Poll that show Obamacare to be a political loser, Lake said: "Don't defend it. Say it was flawed from the beginning and we're going to fix it." Note that she didn't advise to reject it outright, apparently because she knows that's never going to fly with Obama and the Democratic establishment and probably because it would be tantamount to an admission that the party has failed in...

    President Obama looked to rally European allies to intensify the international isolation of Russia in a sweeping speech Wednesday afternoon, casting the crisis in Crimea as the latest iteration of a decades-old battle with the "darker forces of the past." "I come here today to insist that we must never take for granted the progress that has been won here in Europe and advanced around the world, because the contest of ideas continues for your generation," Obama told an audience at the Palais Des Beaux Arts in Belgium. Obama declared that Russia's leadership was "challenging truths that only a few...

She talked about the millions of people in her state who are benefiting from the law that Republicans have tried to repeal 54 times. "This is a huge success, this law. I'm saying that.

His campaign promises were so much better sounding than anyone else’s – no lobbyists in his administration, waiting five days before signing all non-emergency bills so people would have time to read them, putting health care negotiations on C-SPAN, reading every bill line by line to make sure money isn’t being wasted, prosecution of Wall St. criminals, ending raids against medical marijuana in states...

The ship, named the Chon-Chon Gang, was found to be crammed with missiles and mucho military contraband from terror-sponsoring Cuba. Nuke-rattling North Korea has been under a UN arms embargo since 2006, by the way. At first, Cuban terror-sponsoring dictator Raul Castro tried threatening the Panamanian authorities behind the scenes to keep the issue mum, or at least parrot their version of the scam.

    Late last year Obama finally got around to admitting that you couldn’t actually keep your insurance policy under Obamacare. This after years of telling the country that we would be able to keep our policies. Now the President is finally getting around to telling us what we already surmised: We won’t be able to keep our doctor either. The President is actually running around the country trying to spin fewer choices, suggesting that it’s a “cost savings.” Interestingly before Obamacare those with insurance could afford the doctor they wanted. It’s only under Obamacare that they can’t afford their doctor. Yet...

    A United States surveillance drone has been intercepted above the Ukranian region of Crimea, a Russian state arms and technology group said Friday. "The drone was flying at about 4,000 metres (12,000 feet) and was virtually invisible from the ground. It was possible to break the link with US operators with complex radio-electronic" technology, said Rostec in a statement. The drone fell "almost intact into the hands of self-defence forces" added Rostec, which said it had manufactured the equipment used to down the aircraft, but did not specify who was operating it.

    "Lies" are what Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid calls the television ads complaining about Obamacare. But the people in those ads are not liars. They have pre-existing conditions and can't see the specialists or get the medications they need. They're the people President Barack Obama claimed he would help, but instead they're getting hurt. They had insurance, but their plans got canceled because of the Affordable Care Act, forcing them into Obamacare. Now they're discovering that Obamacare plans are not for sick people. They offer "free" mammograms, "free" colonoscopies and "free" contraceptives, meaning there is no copay. But if you...

    Executive Summary Support for same-sex marriage jumped 21 percentage points from 2003, when Massachusetts became the first state to legalize same-sex marriage, to 2013. Currently, a majority (53%) of Americans favor allowing gay and lesbian couples to legally marry, compared to 41% who oppose. In 2003, less than one-third (32%) of Americans supported allowing gay and lesbian people to legally marry, compared to nearly 6-in-10 (59%) who opposed. Today, roughly equal numbers of Americans say they strongly favor (22%) legalizing same-sex marriage as say they strongly oppose it (20%). By contrast, a decade earlier strong opponents (35%) outnumbered strong supporters...

The woman, identified as Alexandria Westover by deputies, was arrested Thursday after admitting to fabricating the story, Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Teri Barbera said. Detectives spent more than 100 hours of manpower investigating after she said she was attacked in the midst of rush hour traffic Tuesday morning.

    How are ObamaCare enrollments coming along? The correct answer is: nobody knows. By this I mean no one who knows the answer with better than 75 percent accuracy is willing to say so in public. This week the Administration updated its official count to 3.3 million enrollments. This number is absolutely false, and everyone knows it. Industry experts believe more than 20 percent of the enrollments counted by Obama’s Department of Health and Human Services are invalid enrollments, because the mandatory first payment was not completed. In some states, the ratio is closer to fifty percent invalid. So we’re left...

    Republicans focused on winning back the Senate have a clear goal this year: convincing voters that vulnerable Democrats are liars. In races from Alaska to North Carolina, GOP strategists are attacking Democrats who echoed Obama’s promises that everyone could keep their health care plan. The Republican argument is that politicians lied to voters when they passed the law — and they are throwing Democrats’ past quotes back in their faces to prove it. In their eyes, every senator is the 60th vote that helped pass the 2010 legislation, and every Democrat is personally liable for health care failures. “We’re talking...

    When a locomotive crashes, it stops. Obamacare, on the other hand, just keeps on going like a cancer that’s ignored, perpetuating itself and destroying everything in its path. While we thought the health care act was a train wreck, it’s more like cancer. Discovering you’ve got a problem should be the first step on the road to recovery. You’re supposed to go in and confront it like you would if you found a tumor. You wouldn’t just leave it there, wondering what it was up to, hoping it would go away on its own. No, you’d enlist some help and...

    All presidents at one time have fudged on the truth. Most politicians pad their resumes and airbrush away their sins. But what is new about political lying is the present notion that lies are not necessarily lies anymore -- a reflection of the relativism that infects our entire culture. Postmodernism (the cultural fad "after modernism") went well beyond questioning norms and rules. It attacked the very idea of having any rules at all. Postmodernist relativists claimed that things like "truth" were mere fictions to preserve elite privilege. Unfortunately, bad ideas like that have a habit of poisoning an entire society...

If we allow this essential truth to be submerged in a cacophony of nick-picking, fact-checking 'gotchas' we allow the good old boy network to win.” Unlike most working mothers, Davis ceded...

Last February, as Congress's automatic budget cuts began chipping away at the government's out-of-control spending levels, Obama went hyperbolic. The spending cuts would deal a "huge blow... to our economy as a whole" and "all our economic progress could be at risk." In a string of speeches, the president played his fear card again. Air traffic control operations were being put at risk. Cancer research projects would be halted. Your food safety was in...

That’s why its troubling that because of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) or Obamacare, Medicare will be cut by $1.05 trillion, 6.3 million Americans have lost their healthcare coverage since its implementation and millions more stand...

    Both the same kind of unprincipled, vengeful,  mafioso-mentality thug that should never  be allowed anywhere near the levers of power... If we as constitutional conservatives somehow allow a Chris Christie nomination to become reality in 2016 after this latest scandal, then shame on us- the GOP Establishment golden boy's aides have been caught red-handed ordering bridge lanes closed for four days, creating traffic snarls  -and causing at least one death via ambulance delay- for no other reason than retaliation against a whole town (Fort Lee, NJ) because their Dem mayor (who Christie staffers referred to as 'that little Serbian') refused to endorse his...
  • Fukushima danger 'under control' – Not!

    Much has been said about the Fukushima nuclear power-plant disaster, much of it true, some untrue. The problem with the news coming out of the troubled complex is that the operating company TEPCO, the Japanese government and international agencies are not being completely forthcoming. Some call it political spin, but others just say the world is being told lies. The epitome of the falsehoods being told about Fukushima comes from no less than the Japanese prime minister himself. At the final International Olympic Committee meeting in Buenos Aires, the one deciding who would host the 2020 Summer Olympics, Shinzo Abe...

    The American Spectator ^ | January 6, 2014 | Jed Babbin
    Two events last week — one an announcement by the Marine Corps, the other speeches at the inauguration of New York City's new mayor — illustrated vividly how President Obama and his media cohort have so narrowed the boundaries of political speech that we no longer believe we can challenge outright lies.. [snip] ..What Obama said about America in that speech was a lie, what Rev. Lucas and Harry Belafonte said in the de Blasio inauguration were lies, and what the Marines did in renewing their diminution of physical standards for combat arms was the renewal of a broken promise....

    Guest post by JT Hatter: The United States of America was once a land of laws and not of men. Obama and the Democratic Party have changed all that, possibly forever. Millions of people, along with a few brave politicians, are now openly speaking of impeachment. Why? Because the Obama administration's wanton and destructive disregard for the laws of the land have become so egregious that it can no longer be tolerated... A LAND OF LAWS NO MORE The Attorneys General of Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Michigan, Oklahoma, South Dakota, South Carolina, Texas, and Virginia have issued A Report on Obama Administration Violations of Law, which says...
  • Once Again, Obamacare Hurts Obama Supporters

    As 2014 dawns, we have the spectacle of federal AmeriCorps “members” becoming liable to the Obamacare law’s penalties for individuals who fail to have up-to-snuff health insurance. Why are AmeriCorps' semi-volunteers in trouble? Because the health plans provided by their federal employer don’t meet the feds’ own law. Needless to say, the young people involved didn’t realize joining a federal program would bring federal punishments, and they feel betrayed. Sarah Sklaw, a 22-year-old Vista member from New York City, says AmeriCorps’ parent agency, the Corporation for National and Community Service, repeated the Lie of the Year, “If you like your...

    Hey Egypt ^ | December 29, 2013 | Eman Nabih
    Volkhard Windfuhr statements to Daily News Egypt and Youm7, declared that Without taking sides in the internal conflict, he considered it their duty to make their members aware of a seriously increasing danger for their journalistic performance and even lives. Windfuhr said the attacks on foreign journalists, some of which were fatal, happened on purpose by “self-proclaimed ‘peaceful protesters’.” Head of FPA added that happily on 19/8/2013, he escaped a mean sniper attack on the 15 May Bridge at Zamalek Cairo. The criminal was not a military individual or policeman either, he witnessed for that fact, normal Egyptian citizen passers-by,...
