  • CNN’s Carol Costello: Obama’s People Can Be ‘Nasty,’ Willing to ‘Threaten Your Job’

    On Wednesday morning, CNN Newsroom anchor Carol Costello made a rather stunning, if cryptic, revelation. In discussing the firing of national security official Jofi Joseph, Costello agreed with panelist Jason Johnson that the Obama administration can be thin-skinned, and said that “President Obama’s people can be quite nasty. They don’t like you to say anything bad about their boss, and they’re not afraid to use whatever means they have at hand to stop you from doing that, including threatening your job.” …

    On the House floor on Friday, Texas Representative Louie Gohmert accused various federal agencies of aiding Islamic terrorists organizations such as the Council on American Islamic Relations and the Islamic Society of North America in their attempts to enact Sharia Law. “We need to address the political correctness that is blinding our agencies and blinding our military of its ability to see who the enemy is, because it’s getting people killed,” Gohmert said. “When you refuse to acknowledge that the Afghans you’re training, may be willing to turn their guns you’re training them on and kill you…until you recognize that...

    Western Journal ^ | 2/22/13 | James Simpson
    North Carolina’s Civitas Institute has revealed that the North Carolina State Board of Elections and the Obama campaign conspired to register at least 11,000 people via the internet in violation of state law. This has been confirmed through records requests filed with all of North Carolina’s 100 counties. The counting is not yet complete. North Carolina does not allow online voting, but according to Civitas, SBE staff authorized an Obama campaign website, Gottaregister.com, to use a web-based registration program. The SBE’s chief lawyer responded to the charge with a plainly disingenuous 1984-newspeak answer: Wright repeatedly denied that the SBE allowed...

Moreover, James Tracy asserts in radio interviews and on his memoryholeblog.com. that trained "crisis actors" may have been employed by the Obama administration in an effort to shape public opinion in favor of the event's true purpose: gun control. "As documents relating to the Sandy Hook shooting continue to be assessed and interpreted by independent researchers, there is a growing awareness that the media...

    SQUIRREL HILL, Pa. — For the second time in the past week, an anti-Obama office in Squirrel Hill was vandalized. According to police, two vandals were caught on surveillance camera spray-painting the front window of a building that houses a Jewish group that promotes the message of defeating President Barack Obama. Group coordinator Josh Wander said he's disappointed the building has been vandalized a second time. "It happened once last week and we thought that was an isolated incident. Clearly it's not, and it's a campaign thing that's going on," Wander said. Authorities said the vandals spray-painted an H over...

Other pictures without captions show Obama in African tribal attire with two other men; and with at least 10 men in western clothes. Yet another picture shows him with a group of women wearing traditionally African attire that may or may not be his relatives.

    Is this really that big of a surprise? A reporter for the San Francisco Chronicle recorded several anti-Obama protesters who disrupted an Obama fundraiser. In other words, she was reporting the news. The Administration's response: the reporter, Carla Marinucci, was "removed as a [press] pool reporter..." Not really much, but the Administration found it worthy to take away Ms. Marinucci's privileges. The SF Gate provides addition details: The hip, transparent and social media-loving Obama administration is showing its analog roots. And maybe even some hypocrisy highlights. White House officials have banished one of the best political reporters in the country...

    A celebrity journalist now claims he misspoke when he said last week that Hawaii’s governor told him he was unable to find President Barack Obama’s original birth certificate after a search of state and hospital archives. Mike Evans told FoxNews.com on Wednesday he was remorseful and embarrassed that he appeared to have given the impression that he had discussed the search for Obama’s birth certificate with Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie. Evans, who says he has been a close friend of Abercrombie since the 1980s, appeared on Minnesota’s KQRS radio last week and said he’d been told by the governor himself...

    One of the questions raised by the news that the Obama administration is going to use regulation rather than legislation to bring in the so-called “death panels” as part of Obamacare is how it happened that this scoop was brought in not by the newspapers or the members of Congress but by Governor Palin. Confirmation of Mrs. Palin’s scoop was brought in by the New York Times in a dispatch issued Christmas day, more than a year after Mrs. Palin issued her warning about Obamacare leading to government involvement in end-of-life issues. At the time, Mrs. Palin’s prophecy touched off...

Steve King (R-IA) got to the heart of what bothers most opponents of ACA: “Obamacare’s ‘individual mandate’ always rested on the absurd premise that the Commerce Clause empowered the federal government to regulate Americans’ decisions not to engage in commercial activity. Adoption of such an argument would have vested the federal government with the power to regulate virtually every aspect of Americans’ lives...” King is correct.

    Lawyers learn early that if they are in danger of losing a case, their best strategy is to delay it. With the help of a friendly judge, that seems to be the Obama administration's strategy in the case of fired AmeriCorps Inspector General Gerald Walpin. It is past time for the case to move forward. Mr. Walpin was fired in June after releasing two reports critical of close allies of President Obama's. As a senator, Mr. Obama was a leading co-sponsor of a 2008 law requiring that inspectors general receive 30 days' notice before being fired and that Congress receive...

Bernie Sanders of Vermont vowed it will return when the realization dawns that private insurance companies "are no longer needed." Sanders, an independent and socialist, said his approach is the only one "which eliminates the hundreds of billions of dollars in waste, administrative costs, bureaucracy and profiteering that is engendered by the private insurance companies." His remarks drew handshakes and even a hug or two from Democrats who had filed into the Senate to hear him. Sanders acknowledged the proposal...

Under reconciliation, the bill can be passed by a simple majority vote in the Senate -- just 51 votes -- and will be given preferential treatment on the House floor as well.

He actually stated, “If you think about it, UPS and FedEx are doing just fine. It’s the Post Office that’s always having problems.” Oops. Freudian slip? Subliminally speaking, was the president inferring that private health insurers are doing just fine? Government insurance is what’s in trouble today.

  • President Obama town hall-style forum in New Hampshire (PICTURES OF THE ORGANIZATION AND THE MOB)

    President Obama to pitch health care reform plan during town hall-style forum in New Hampshire Hours before Obama was to arrive at Portsmouth High School Tuesday afternoon, the road leading to the event site was lined with people - about 100 supporters of Obama's health care overhaul on one side and about half as many opponents on the other. "I'm here because I'm an American, I believe in free speech and I'm scared to death," said Barbara Taylor, 65, of Exeter, N.H. She arrived at 7:30 a.m. and was soaking wet from a severe downpour earlier in the morning. The...

    Dirty Secret No. 1 in Obamacare by Chuck Norris Health care reforms are turning into health care revolts. Americans are turning up the heat on congressmen in town hall meetings across the U.S. While watching these political hot August nights, I decided to research the reasons so many are opposed to Obamacare to separate the facts from the fantasy. What I discovered is that there are indeed dirty little secrets buried deep within the 1,000-plus page health care bill.

    Police stationed at Portsmouth High School for President Barack Obama's visit this afternoon have had their hands full this morning. According to Detective Lt. Corey MacDonald, one person has already been arrested for allegedly sneaking into the high school. MacDonald, who is also assigned to work as the city's "intelligence officer," as a liaison to the Secret Service, told Foster's that police have also encountered a situation where a protestor was armed with some type of firearm. It is unclear if the person has been arrested. A shift commander on duty at the Portsmouth Police Station has also confirmed one...
  • Obama Creates New White House Healthcare Propaganda Website

    08/10/2009 10:25:39 AM PDT · by Sasparilla · 8 replies · 505+ views
    Obama has a new sequel to the snitches hotline. On the new White House "Health Insurance Forum Reality Check" site, Linda Douglass of the White House Office of Health Reform tries to "debunk" the "myth" that reform will force you out of your current insurance plan or force you to change doctors. She says, "To the contrary, reform will expand your choices, not eliminate them." Actually, Barack Obama and Linda Douglass seem to forget that computers keep great records and never forget any of Obama's past remarks in speeches and off the cuff remarks. Obama, speaking at the SEIU conferencre...

    Nancy Pelosi upped the ante in the health care debate when she responded to a media question in the following manner: Interviewer: Do you think there’s legitimate grassroot opposition going on here? Pelosi: "I think they’re Astroturf… You be the judge. "They’re carrying swastikas and symbols like that to a town meeting on healthcare." That being in addition to her reference to town hall protesters as "simply un-American."Well, first of all, Nancy Pelosi calls health care opponents "Astroturf," and the propagandist mainstream media have duly found evidence of one or two emails from conservative groups instructing opponents of health care...

    A White House Web site activated Monday uses the same set-up as the "Fight the Smears" page the Obama campaign maintained last year to battle rumors seen as potentially damaging to his candidacy. The Obama administration has launched a new Web site to battle what it calls "wild rumors" about the health care reform plans being pushed through Congress -- including an invitation for the public to tattle on any other "myths" they come across.

    This past week, Macon Phillips, President Obama’s director of new media announced (under a heading “Facts are Stubborn Things”) that there was a lot of “disinformation” being circulated about the proposed health care plan and asked anyone who received an email critical of it or who “see[s] something on the web about health insurance reform that seems ‘fishy’” to report it to flag@whitehouse.gov. Several commenters, noting the chilling effect a database of opponents of the White House might have, suggested that a suit might be brought for violation of the Privacy Act of 1974, a post-Nixon statute that prohibits federal...
