  • Government Hiring Escorts For 65,000 Unaccompanied Illegal Alien Children (From JANUARY!)

    Conservative Wife ^ | June 19, 2014
    On January 29, 2014, the Federal Government posted an ad on their BizOpps website seeking escorts for unaccompanied illegal alien children. If this doesn't prove that the entire mess with all the illegals flooding our country was planned by this administration, nothing ever will. Here is the entire document that lays out the "requirements" to become such an escort: (I have highlighted interesting points) MAKE THIS GO VIRAL!!!

    A local news station brings viewers inside one Pennsylvania company as the employees their learn about their new health care plans under Obamacare: "Look at the numbers," says the reporter of two employees. "Jeff and Dave used to have a $1,250 deductible. Since Obamacare went into effect, it's now jumped 60 percent to $2,000. That's nothing compared to Brian, Kristi, and Judy who have kids. They are going to pay twice that, four grand." The reporter adds that co-pays are being increased, too.

    The Question: I've had pain in my right knee for more than a year. After waiting five months, I had an MRI which showed two ligament tears. The specialist cannot see me for months. I have to work and care for my two children under age 10. The anti-inflammatory pills do not help, and my leg is so swollen I can hardly walk. What is my right to be treated? The Answer: It's frustrating: You've paid into medicare for years and it's not available when you need it. Rationing and waits are endemic to our public health-care system, but that's...

    It was tragic that Bill Elliot of South Carolina was stricken with cancer; reassuring that his excellent insurance covered his expensive but medically advanced treatment and he was doing well. And then came another tragedy--in the form of an elitist, totalitarian, Know It All Government, almost worse than the cancer. The Affordable Care Act, Obamacare, deemed Elliot's fine insurance policy unacceptable--probably because it didn't include maternity coverage--and offered him another policy with higher, "affordable" premiums that Elliot couldn't afford. As he told Megyn Kelly of Fox News, he didn't want to burden his family with the unaffordable affordable premiums so...

    This article first appeared in GateStoneInstitute.org. Where are the articles by moderate Muslims condemning the prominent Muslims who beg Allah to strike infidels with cancer and disease? No practicing Muslim has openly condemned such prayers, or named the sheikhs who urge these brutalities. The neighbors of the Chechnyan Muslim family whose sons were responsible for the Boston Marathon terror attack said they were stunned by the news and that this nice Muslim family was known for its generosity and kindness. Many Americans often ask, “What about the Muslim family next door? They are really nice people.” Some of the nicest...

    In the wake of the Daily Callers release of President Obama cheering Rev. Wright and invoking the race card in various ways, our friend Morgen Richmond decided the time was right to release some little-known Obama video of his own. He authorized me to release the video here first. The following clips are from 2002. Obama is speaking in a church at a 2002 Martin Luther King Jr. Day memorial service. The full speech is here, and by and large it is a nice speech by a rising politician. Obama speaks about the need for empathy in society, about taking...

    It isn't socialism that explains Obama's dismissive "you didn't build that" remark toward people of talent and individual initiative; it's the culture of affirmative action. As I listened to Obama's silly, if not pathetic, comments, I was reminded of nothing so much as the comments and attitudes of people like him: the so-called "multicultural" affirmative-action students one encounters in colleges and universities. Obama became president of the Harvard Law Review (HLR) without ever having an article published in it, a status that separated him from every other HLR president who preceded him. In fact, while Obama was the HLR's first...

    The Washington Post was already skating on thin ice with its fantastically convenient hit piece on Mitt Romney, published in perfect synchronization with President Obamas embrace of gay marriage. Designed to paint Romney as a mean-spirited homophobic bully during his prep school days which, let us remember, occurred over seventeen thousand days ago the ridiculously bloated and overly-dramatic 5000-word Post expose related the story of how Romney allegedly led a gang of high-school hooligans and forcibly cut the hair of a presumably gay fellow student named John Lauber. The piece does a great deal of mind-reading to insinuate...

    Well, isn't this rich? And I do mean rich. President Obama, man of the people, will deliver his presidential nomination acceptance speech at the Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, N.C. -- so that Democratic Party fundraisers can reward big donors with skyboxes and other lavish perks. As usual, the White House and its allies are trying to camouflage naked partisan money-grubbing in populist garb.

He doesn't hold back on his views of America's current political climate -- and the Ohio Valley's future- as he joins us for this month's Sunday Sit-Down. -- Many people believe the federal government, through the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, is waging a war on coal.

After all, have you considered how lucky we are that the government lets us drive cars at all? Imagine if cars hadnt been around for a century, but instead were just invented today. Is there any way theyd be approved for individual use? Its an era of bans on incandescent bulbs; if you suggested putting millions of internal-combustion engines out there,...

    Conservatives, Libertarians and even Republicans should use the stunning example to the bankruptcy of Solyndra to reach the obvious conclusion. Whether the Obama administration is corrupt, incompetent or simply the victim of ideological stupidity is almost beside the point. Of course it's all three. The larger point is one that Conservatives and Libertarians have been making for some time: that government screws up and the bigger the government the bigger the screw-ups. Only government intervention could have produced the housing bubble, and the economic rubble that we are living with was created by government policies. Only government can run up...

While other worldwide heads of state are invited, the Obamas have been excluded from the Royal nuptials, ostensibly because the affair is not a state occasion. But the GLOBE goes on to suggest the reason is because Michelle could upstage his bride or that she dissed the memory of Princess Diana by uttering rather catty remarks totally unappreciated across the pond.

    In preparation for the two recent back-to-back blizzards, D.C. residents were emptying the shelves of neighborhood grocery stores. Notwithstanding the pre-blizzard panic buying, what's interesting is that no one was freaking out about whether the stores would be adequately stocked after the blizzards. After all, think about it: there is absolutely no government planning that goes into what is stocked in grocery stores. No federal Department of Food. No local or state planning commission. No grocery boards. No bureaucrats or bureaucracies. No laws requiring grocery stores to be well-stocked. No rules and regulations dictating how much of each food item,...

    PRESIDENT Obama promises that "if you like your health plan, you can keep it," even after he reforms our health-care system. That's untrue. The bills now before Congress would force you to switch to a managed-care plan with limits on your access to specialists and tests. Two main bills are being rushed through Congress with the goal of combining them into a finished product by August. Under either, a new government bureaucracy will select health plans that it considers in your best interest, and you will have to enroll in one of these "qualified plans." If you now get your...

Ghanas political pedigree as the first independent country in sub-Saharan Africa and kingpin of Africas liberation struggle, as well as its recent exemplary strides in democracy, political stability and good governance, might have been compelling credentials that made it a preferred...

    It was a recurring theme of Barack Obama's presidential campaign a call for openness: "Transparency and accountability, getting the American people involved, that's how we're gonna bring about change," candidate Obama said. And the theme continued on Obama's first day as president: "Starting today, every agency and department should know that this administration stands on the side not of those who seek to withhold information, but those who seek to make it known." But for advocates of open government, the new era of openness has yet to dawn. "Once all the pretty speeches were over in the first couple...

    Why all the pussyfooting about identifying Barack Hussein Obama for what he truly is, a despot? Now that his Muslim roots have emerged in time for Muslim Brotherhood members to attend his Cairo speech, you can make that, a Muslim despot. Just as surely as he had his own records sealed from public view, out on the campaign trail, he snookered at least some of his voters on hidden Muslim roots. For those who consider the despot tag too harsh, a president who works to take down his own country is a despot. This despot acts as though the United...

    A tipster alerted me to an interesting assertion. A cursory review by that person showed that many of the Chrysler dealers on the closing list were heavy Republican donors. To quickly review the situation, I took all dealer owners whose names appeared more than once in the list. And, of those who contributed to political campaigns, every single one had donated almost exclusively to GOP candidates. While this isn't an exhaustive review, it does have some ominous implications if it can be verified. However, I also found additional research online at Scribd (author unknown), which also appears to point to...

    No president in modern times has managed to conceal so much of his biography as this one.

Nobody thinks the president has some basic medical problem. He shows every sign of being in excellent physical condition. But so did John F. Kennedy, who turned out...

    In just the first 70 days of the new administration, a number of Obama supporters have expressed some dismay at their new president. Some find his ethically challenged appointments at odds with his soaring moral rhetoric. Others lament his apparent inability to stir up supporters in impromptu speeches, at least in the manner he did with set oratory on the campaign trail. And they worry about his occasionally insensitive remark. Many cannot quite figure out why, after lambasting George W. Bush for running a $500-billion deficit, Obama has outlined eight years of budgetary red ink that would nearly match the...
