  • ObamaCare - "Take Ten Pills and You're Fine"

    GOT DRUGS? The D.E.A. is calling on Americans to empty their medicine chests and turn in their private stash of potentially dangerous pharmaceuticals. But what's more American than self-medication? And how else to make it through election season? Republicans oppose such sweeping confiscations and the "Pledge to America," taking a limited-government approach, promises to seize only any "unspent stimulus." Nancy Pelosi explains in song why Congress is not covered by ObamaCare. They have their own plan that gives them special benefits and heavy drug use may be the reason that Congress is so ineffective. "Take Ten Pills and You're Fine"...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) supports the elimination of rules that ban transgender people from openly serving in the military, her office told the Washington Blade. “Leader Pelosi believes there is no place for discrimination in the U.S. Armed Forces, including on the basis of gender identity,” spokesperson Drew Hammill told the Blade. In May, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel said that the ban should be “continually reviewed.”

    Human Events ^ | 10/13/14 | John Hayward
    Democrats’ strategy for keeping their ObamaCare losses to a minimum in the 2014 elections is a combination of denial and obfuscation. The “denial” part consists of loudly insisting that nobody is complaining about ObamaCare any more, so it must not be that big of a political liability for them. The fact that people across the country are complaining about ObamaCare is irrelevant; this is a Jedi mind trick, not a reasoned argument. As for the obfuscation part, well, that’s simple: the Administration contrived to keep 2015 insurance premiums under wraps until after the election. The new and improved HealthCareDotGov is...

    There is a noble-sounding attitude that many Americans hold regarding whom they vote for. "I vote for the candidate," they say. It sure sounds good. Voting for the best candidate, rather than the party, sounds as American as apple pie. But as the Democratic Party has become a doctrinaire left-wing party, this sentiment is no longer noble. It is actually foolish and dangerous. There was a time when there were terrific Democrats whom an independent and even a Republican could vote for. Connecticut Senator Joe Lieberman was such an example. He was a liberal -- he believed in the good...

    Earlier this year it became clear that democrats would be running away from Obama as the election neared: Vocal opposition to the administration’s policies has been another tactic used by Democrats. In his post-speech comments, Arkansas’s Mark Pryor criticized the president for his stances on gun-control and the Keystone XL pipeline. Natalie Tennant, who is trying to hold West Virginia’s Jay Rockefeller’s seat for Democrats, has urged the president to “rethink” his stance on energy and called him “wrong on coal.” “I will fight him or anyone else who wants to take our coal jobs,” she said.

Yet, liberals know that the winning back the House this year is not a possibility, as Republicans will probably increase their majority.Many on the left...

Why would the former House Speaker insult a colleague in such a manner? She didn’t count her way to this assessment; Democrats do not hold a majority of the House. Nor did she reason her way to this position, as there was nothing in Rep. Marino’s argument on the immigration issue that raised empirical red flags. Perhaps it was a momentary lapse in judgment in the midst...

Marino struck a nerve by pointing out that the Democrats owned the entire Congress and White House for two years and did nothing about illegal immigration. Nancy Pelosi then crept up on Marino and began taunting him. Rep. Nita Lowey, D-N.Y., said it best: “What is she doing?”...

Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) soldiers discovered the handbook on the ground in the Gaza Strip as they conducted raids of homes and other facilities used by Hamas to plan its terror activities. Hamas’ terrorism manuals instruct readers on how to build homemade explosive devices and how to set them to explode in unlikely places.

    And apparently she believes them. What’s a little genocidal Jew-hatred among humanitarians? Pelosi’s statement is boneheaded, but it is understandable in light of the Obama Administration’s willingness to normalize Hamas and accept it as part of a “Palestinian” unity government. “Pelosi: Qataris Have Told Me ‘Hamas Is a Humanitarian Organization,’” by Susan Jones, CNSNews.com, July 28, 2014: (CNSNews.com) – House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) says the United States must look to Qatar, an ally of the terrorist group Hamas, for advice in resolving the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. “And we have to confer with the Qataris, who have told me over...

    The Washington establishment believes that the government shutdown of 1995 was a disastrous mistake that accomplished little and cost House Republicans politically. The facts are exactly the opposite. While the shutdown produced some short-term pain, it set the stage for a budget deal in 1996 that led to the largest drop in federal discretionary spending since 1969. The discipline imposed by this budget — overall spending grew at an average of 2.9 percent a year while I was speaker of the House, the slowest rate in decades — allowed us to reach a balanced-budget deal in 1997. ...the balanced budget...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)Tuesday on MSNBC "Morning Joe," House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) discussed the humanitarian crisis of tens of thousands of unaccompanied minors illegally flooding across the U.S.-Mexico border. The congressional leader dismissed the strain on our nations financial resources to care for all the children of the world in troubled areas, saying she believes the U.S. government should look at the children like "baby Jesus," who she added "was a refugee from violence." Pelosi said, "In Washington, I see an embrace of the idea that this is a humanitarian crisis by people who are not politicizing the issue. What we...

    Right wing women are sexier than left wing women, argues Cosmo Landesman in the latest issue of the Spectator. And it's not like he's biased: this is a self-confessed "liberal-lefty-pro-feminist" talking here. Maybe once conservative women deserved their reputation for being "uptight, prudish and repressed", he says, but not any more. These days it's lefty women who are the problem, constricted as they are by "a sexual correctness that has come in the wake of third-wave feminism." I recently had sex with a woman who writes for the Guardian and in the heat of the moment I said, ‘I love...
