    What actually happened in Egypt and Libya on September 11, 2012? The story from the U.S. government has changed many times in an effort to craft a narrative that causes as little damage as possible to the Obama administration. Now the administration seems to have settled on something approaching a final version.The U.S. embassy in Cairo, September 11, 2012Newscom It goes like this:On September 11, and in the days that followed, citizens in countries throughout the Middle East and North Africa gathered to protestThe Innocence of Muslims,a video on YouTube produced in California that was disrespectful to Islam and the...

    The Center for American Progress ^ | January 13, 2013 | Neera Tanden, Winnie Stachelberg, Arkadi Gerney, and Danielle Baussan
    After last month’s senseless shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut—in which 20 children and 6 adults were shot and killed—we need to immediately address the gaps in our current law that enable mass shootings, as well as the everyday shootings that on average claim the lives of 33 Americans each day. In this issue brief we recommend 13 legislative proposals and executive actions to prevent gun violence in our nation. These actions are targeted in the following three key areas: ■Better background checks ■Taking military-grade weapons off the streets and out of criminals’ hands ■Better data, better...
  • Obama Blames Media Preferred By Republican Constituencies For Unfriendliness In D.C.

    Mediaite ^ | 1/14/13 | Noah Rothman
    During a Monday press conference in the White House, President Barack Obama was asked about his seeming lack of interest in socialization with other members of the political establishment in Washington. Obama said that, while he is a friendly person, it takes two to socialize and Republicans are generally not interested in being seen with him. He blamed media that is preferred by Republican constituencies for creating an environment in which a Republican politician seen with Obama has to fear a primary fight in their next election. President Obama said he does socialize with members of Congress from the other...

    PRESIDENT OBAMA: Well, I think, for example, how we are gathering data, for example, on guns that fall into the hands of criminals and how we track that more effectively -- there may be some steps that we can take administratively, as opposed -- through legislation. As far as people lining up and purchasing more guns, you know, I think that weve seen for some time now that those who oppose any common-sense gun control or gun safety measures have a pretty effective way of ginning up fear on the part of gun owners that somehow the federal governments about...

    AP and cambridge dictionary ^ | Jan 14m 2013 | self vanity
    Today President Obama told the American people that the US government is not a deadbeat. Depending on the definition used, he is wrong. According to the cambridge dictionary, there are two major definitions of a deadbeat: (1) a person who is not willing to work, does not behave in a responsible way and does not fit into ordinary society (2) a person or company that is not willing to pay debts If we used the first definition, I would contend that the US federal government is both "not willing to work" and "does not behave in a responsible way." Therefore...

    Real Clear Politics ^ | January 14, 2013 | Richard Benedetto
    In case you havent noticed, President Obama and his vaunted PR machine are orchestrating a full-court press to boost the presidential stock of his loyal vice president, Joe Biden. It is not clear whether Biden will seek the Oval Office next time -- he will be 73 years old when 2016 rolls around. But just in case, the political foundation is carefully being laid and the public expectation is being buttressed by White House strategists, and dutifully documented by the media. Biden stokes talk of presidential campaign in 2016, said a headline in Sundays Washington Examiner. Since the Obama-Biden re-election...

    Chuck Todd, NBC. QUESTION: Thank you, sir. As you know, Senate Democrats -- Harry Reid sent you a letter begging you, essentially, to take -- consider some sort of executive action on this debt ceiling issue. I know you've said you're not negotiating on it. Your administration has ruled out the various ideas that have been out there, the 14th Amendment, but just this morning, House -- one of the House Democratic leaders, Jim Clyburn, asked you to use the 14th Amendment and even said sometimes that's what it takes. He brought up the Emancipation Proclamation as saying they took...

    Like Clarice, I find myself feeling a little more alienated from mainstream culture with each passing year. Take the self-adulation orgy of the Golden Globes for example(SNIP) Last nights telecast of the awards was, well, Les Miserables. I missed Ricky Gervais. His irreverent, non-partisan assaults lobbed in all quarters made heads explode. I guess the studio bosses and their hired hands didnt find that as entertaining as I did. So this year we got NBCs dream team: Tina Fey and Amy Poehler: (snip) lets get on with this years winners/losers in both the film and fashion categories. Julianne Moore, for...

    Cowboy Confessional ^ | 1/14/2013 | Guy Smith
    Ironic it is that anti-trust is a very common phrase inside the beltway. It is growing outside as well. When applied to people and institutions, trust means the confident expectation of them doing something specific, such as keeping their word, being honest, not stealing from you and deferring to your personal prerogatives. The antithesis of trust or anti-trust, to abuse the term requires either violating the basic principles of trust or being of such low character as to never earn trust. Congress doubled down on their anti-trust personae. One should never trust any politician. By their nature, they...

    This was WAY back in 2010 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lUd-slJc-GY"...your employer, it's estimated, would see premiums fall by as much as 3000% which means they could give you a raise."Steve Gilbert had some fun with this: Lets say an employer pays $4,000 in health care premiums for an employee. If his premium goes down 100% he will save $4,000 dollars. If it goes down 3,000% that is a savings of $4,000 x 30 which = $120,000. Which means that an employer will make a $120,000 profit on each employees healthcare insurance once Obama-care is passed. You can buy a lot of unicorns with...

    The Left Is Convinced Americans Wont Fight For 2nd Amendment Rights Once cowed at the thought of provoking Second Amendment supporters, leftists will soon attempt to ban assault weapons (and much more) as legislation offered by Dianne Feinstein makes its way to the Senate floor. It seems that D.C. liberals have finally become convinced that American gun owners are too cowardly, too lazy or too dependent upon the generosity of Big Brother to fight for their Second Amendment rights. During the past four years, the gun banning-Left have watched as American buyers broke sales records in the purchase of semi-automatic...

Those who say otherwise are liars and traitors and oath breakers and domestic enemies. If they come to take away your guns by force, they have declared war on the Constitution, and on you. At that point, war is joined, just as it was during another famous gun confiscation...
