  • Ted Cruz Mad Libs a Cicero speech to protest Obama's executive action on immigration

    Washington Examiner ^ | November 20, 2014 | Justin Green
    Sen. Ted Cruz took to the Senate floor Thursday to deliver a slightly changed version of a very old speech as a form of protest against President Obama's planned executive action on immigration. The Texas Republican, in a four-minute address, gave a gently edited version of Cicero's first oration against Cataline. Obama was substituted for Cataline, the U.S./Mexico border was swapped in for the Palatine Hill, "women" was added to references to men, "pen and phone" made an appearance, "execution" was changed to "defeat" and the IRS scandal showed up near the end. The video is above, and the text...
  • Report: ObamaCare numbers boosted by dental [only] plans (to push ACA over 7 million)

    The Obama administration’s much-touted enrollment figure of 7.3 million includes nearly a half-million people who have only purchased dental plans, the House Oversight Committee has found. Without the 400,000 people enrolled in dental-only plans, the total enrollment for ObamaCare drops to 6.97 million, according an investigation by the committee, which was first reported by Bloomberg News. “Instead of offering the public an accurate accounting, the administration engaged in an effort to obscure and downplay the number of dropouts,” Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), chairman of the committee, wrote in a statement to Bloomberg. Enrollment figures have strayed from the initial 8...

CLEVELAND, November 19, 2014 — With the stroke of a pen, President Barack Obama will strip black Americans and their children of their economic civil rights and opportunities in favor of illegal alien immigrants.

That is illegal under the federal taxpayer-funded program for senior citizens and the disabled, authorities said. Eight...

    Academics often believe they are the smartest people around, and they like to tell others how best to live their lives. Add the government’s power to control people’s lives and you have a dangerous combination. Americans got a taste of this elitism when MIT’s Jonathan Gruber mocked "the stupidity of the American voter." But American voters aren’t the only ones who make mistakes. Time after time, the “architect" of ObamaCare underestimated costs and overestimated how many people would be covered. Like so many Ivory Tower academics, Gruber doesn’t understand how the real world operates. Could it be that those “stupid”...

He also suggested that few Americans are paying attention to the controversy. “People are understandably pretty tired of relitigating all the fights from 2009 and 2010,” Earnest said Tuesday at...

With Obamacare open enrollment set to begin over the weekend and the Supreme Court set to weigh in again on the law next year, Republicans pounced, using the videos as additional ammunition in their case that President Barack Obama and his administration misled the American public on Obamacare.

Jonathan Gruber, an economist, suggested last year that the administration’s signature health-care legislation passed in part because of the “stupidity of the American voter” and a “lack of transparency” over its funding mechanisms. “I just heard about this,” Obama said at a new conference, after wrapping up two days of meetings with world leaders here at the G-20 Summit. “The fact that some adviser who never worked...

    The United States stands on the verge of the most significant change to our health care system since the 1965 introduction of Medicare. The bill that was passed by the House and a parallel bill before the Senate would cover most uninsured Americans, saving thousands of lives each year and putting an end to our status as the only developed country that places so many of its citizens at risk for medical bankruptcy. Moreover, the bills would accomplish this aim while reducing the federal deficit over the next decade and beyond. They would reform insurance markets, lower administrative costs, increase...

Acceptable forms include a driver's license, a state ID card, a passport, or a current utility bill, bank statement, government...

    The Bernalillo County Clerk's office mailed absentee ballots to three dead voters, according to an Albuquerque man named Carlos Villanueva, who brought the ballots into the Secretary of State's Office Monday morning. Villanueva said he suspected similar voter fraud was happening, so he tested the system himself. He chose three random people from local obituaries, and wanted to see if it would be easy to request ballots under their names, even though the people were already dead. Using nothing more than their names and birthdates, he was able to get the Bernalillo Co. Clerk's Office to mail the ballots to...

    A Pew Center on the States study in 2012 found that one out of eight voter registrations is inaccurate, out-of-date, or a duplicate. Some 2.8 million people are registered in two or more states, and 1.8 million registered voters are dead. So O’Keefe decided to take some of the 700,000 “inactive” voters the Voting Integrity Project says are on the rolls in North Carolina, the site of one of the nation’s most hotly contested Senate races, and see just how easy it would be to obtain a ballot in their name. Sadly, it was child’s play as his video demonstrates....

    In what election officials will likely deem a "calibration error," an electronic election computer switched Republican votes for Congress to Democrat votes. The machine is in the 2nd Congressional District of Virginia. In that race, Scott Rigell is facing Suzanne Patrick. However, in a video posted to YouTube today, a voter tries to vote for Rigell twice. Both times, though the voter clearly chooses Rigell, the vote is switched to Patrick: And then the person votes: The person undeniably tries to vote for Rigell, but the machine switches the vote. The person then tries to vote for Rigell again, but...

    **SNIP** After his conviction, Wright faced up to eight years in prison, but in September, a judge sentenced him to just 90 days and barred him from ever holding public office again. On Friday, Wright reported to the Los Angeles County jail to begin serving his term. But California’s prison system is overflowing with so many inmates that they have no room for a nonviolent offender with no prior convictions. Wright was processed, booked and released after just over an hour. A spokeswoman for the Los Angeles County sheriff’s department told the Sacramento Bee that Wright received no special treatment....

    This email was sent out by Cheri Jimeno, Ph.D., the President of New Mexico State University Alamogordo to the university students. Jimeno encourages students to vote early and often. “Remember – early voting is available through Saturday. Please be sure to turn over your ballots to read about GO Bond A, GO Bond B and GO Bond C. Yep, Bond B and C have a direct (and wonderful) impact on NMSU-A. So, if you are going to vote “yes” on the bonds, I would encourage you to vote as often as possible….

    The election is upon us and there’s one thing certain: there are going to be close races. And close races mean that armies of lawyers for both sides will descend on courtrooms across the country to challenge the results.There will also be the usual accusations of voter fraud, voter suppression, voter intimidation, balky voting machines, and violations of one or more of the dizzying array of laws governing the way we choose our leaders. And standing in line, waiting to pounce, are the attorneys — many of them upaid — who will zealously guard their party’s interests in any...

    Voter fraud definitely exists, no matter what Eric Holder says.  The only question is, how many races will it determine? What hit me hard these past few weeks is how voter fraud perpetuated by leftists is an expected norm.  See here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and here among many examples. We read about places across the country where fraud is being planned and executed, yet nothing seems to come of it.  I wonder: why aren’t these people arrested? We read about tens of thousands of people who are in this country...
