Obama’s Double Header

Just when I wonder if our president can stoop any lower, what happens? He stoops lower. Thursday was a double header:

While the bodies were still warm, he immediately dug into his basket of talking points and called for more gun control after the tragic mass murders at Umpqua Community College in Oregon. That quote from Rahm Emanuel comes to mind: “You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it’s an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.” Saul Alinsky would be proud.

And at the UN, Obama sent his third string team to attend Prime Minister Netanyahu’s epic UN Speech. You see, Secretary of State John Kerry and UN Ambassador Susan Power had other, more important plans; they were video conferencing with the President at the same time. How convenient!

Note that when the camera turns to the back-benchers he sent to represent us at Natanyahu’s speech, that they are silent and lifeless while everyone else is applauding!

On McCarthy’s Benghazi “gaffe”

By Jazz Shaw  October 1st, 2015

By the time I woke up this morning the headlines in the papers and the subject on the lips of the cable news talking heads had swerved away from Russia’s activities in Syria to a new “crisis” in American politics. Shockingly, and against all expectations, <em>a member of Congress had said something dumb. (Insert #HeadDesk hashtag here.)

In case you somehow missed it, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy was on Fox News yesterday and was asked to list some of the accomplishments of the Republican majority during this term. The first item on his list was not a terrible choice but his phrasing left something to be desired given the sharp blades of the political meat grinder.

Everybody thought Hillary Clinton was unbeatable, right? But we put together a Benghazi special committee, a select committee. What are her numbers today? Her numbers are dropping. Why? Because she’s untrustable. But no one would have known any of that had happened had we not fought.”

Trey Gowdy Grills Planned Parenthood’s President Cecile Richards Ferociously!

There are few things more entertaining than watching the brilliant Trey Gowdy use his rhetorical skills to interrogate those on the left and tear them to shreds.

In this video from this afternoon’s congressional testimony on defunding Planned Parenthood, the GOWD gets president Cecile Richards to admit that she has no problem with abortions done to target a specific gender, or a race.

The question comes at the 3 minute mark, and Cecile stumbles over her answer, but responds that Planned Parenthood is totally cool with abortions that might are made on the basis of killing a girl just because it’s a girl, as they do in China, or because the baby is undesirable because of its race. Pretty despicable.

It appears that Ms. Richards has had a busy career. She is the daughter of former Texas governor, the late Ann Richards. She and her husband, Kirk Adams both worked for the AFL-CIO and she was Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) deputy chief of staff. She has also been involved with other progressive groups. It’s safe to say that she has had lots of experience that prepared her for her current position at PPOA. About Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards.

Black, the author of a bill that passed the House and would redirect taxpayer funds from Planned Parenthood to other federally qualified health care centers that do not provide abortions, challenged Richards on why she dismissed her legislation as not acceptable to women when those other healthcare centers outnumber Planned Parenthood clinics 20 to 1. Richards responded that they do not provide abortions and “abortion is healthcare.”

“As a nurse, I will challenge that every time,” Black countered. “Abortion isn’t healthcare.” Dr. Charmaine Yoest, president of Americans United for Life (AUL) also tweeted out Richards’ response to Black’s question:

Richards, who said that she once worked as a labor organizer and then for House Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), earns nearly $600,000 per year as the head of the nation’s largest provider of abortions. She also receives compensation for Planned Parenthood Action Fund, the lobbying arm of the organization. Continue reading at breitbart.com.

MARK LEVIN – Donald Trump Tax Plan Could Have Been Proposed by REAGAN

In this clip from Monday’s radio show, Mark Levin discusses Donald Trump’s new tax plan. He said that while there are certain things he disagrees with, that overall, it’s a “hell of a plan.” Below is a partial transcript, which picks up just beyond the five minute mark.

…So this is a very pro-growth plan whether you disagree with some of the specifics or not, this is a very pro-growth plan. Let me say Ronald Reagan could have proposed exactly this plan. I don’t know who is advising him but I suspect it’s people of that sort, with that kind of background. This is not a redistribution of wealth plan; it’s not a tax the rich plan, even though some of the propaganda out there. Even some of the rhetoric from Trump suggested it, It’s clearly not. He’s lowering business taxes, he’s lowering capital gains taxes, he’s lowering the individual income taxes, he’s eliminating the death taxes, no marriage penalty, two and a half trillion dollars he wants to come home into the United States where there’s investments.

There are other things that I do have disagreements with, like I just said, that a significant number of people pay no taxes, I say enough of that. And also he penalizes investment overseas, I don’t buy that. I just don’t buy that. If you do these other things our economy will explode in growth, we saw that under Reagan, that’s exactly what happened. We don’t need to play games with protectionism and phony nationalism and tariffs and all the rest of it, we want to encourage foreign companies to invest in our country and that’s how you do it. We want to encourage our own companies to invest in our country that’s how you do it. This is a tax plan for America. This is pro growth, it’s pro individual, it’s pro employer, it’s pro employee, it’s pro family.

[People ask] “Mark, why are you always defending Trump?” This has nothing to do with defending Trump. Read it. But he ought to be defended for this. Why do I have to join in and all the other cat nipping all the time? I already said I disagree with the no taxes for a significant number of people, So what?

Ted Cruz: ‘Republican Leadership Leads The Onslaught

Cruz LeadershipBy Katie McHugh

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) slammed Republican leadership on Monday for slavishly serving the interests of major corporations — and worse, leading attacks from the Left on its conservative grassroots base.

The Democrats are “relentless” in pursuing their principles, Cruz said, which include ever-increasing government spending and unlimited abortion rights. They’re “willing to crawl over broken glass with a knife between their teeth to fight for their principles,” Cruz said.

Republican leadership “reflexively surrenders,” Cruz said. “President Obama simply has to utter the word shutdown and Republican leadership runs for the hills.”

Cruz explained three types of votes take place in the Senate: “show votes,” a limp-wristed attempt to placate voters by staging a pre-ordained surrender to Democrats; votes that simply grow government; “must-pass” votes that include continuing resolutions, appropriations bills, and debt ceiling raises.

The Texas senator compared GOP leadership to an NFL coach that declares “we forfeit” at every single coin toss. The “clean” continuing resolution rubberstamps Obama’s hard-left agenda.

“It funds 100 percent of Obama’s agenda, executive amnesty, Obamacare, the Iran nuclear deal. It is essentially a blank check to Barack Obama,” Cruz said. Continue reading at breitbart.com.

School District Bans Game of Tag for Students’ “Emotional Safety”

With all of the huge crises currently happening in the world and in our republic, the breakdown the rule of law and the erosion of our individual liberties, the inevitability a nuclear Iran, illegal immigration, to name a few, isn’t it nice to know that things are also going to hell in a hand basket at local levels. Here’s but one example:

School Tag

by Philip Hodges 09/26/2015

Officials in the Mercer Island School District in Washington State made an executive decision to ban the game of tag on the playground to “ensure physical, emotional safety of students.” Parents weren’t even notified of the decision. They only found out because their kids told them.

Obviously, parents are upset, not just that their kids aren’t allowed to play tag anymore, but also because they weren’t consulted in the school’s decision-making.

The district responded to Q13Fox with this email about their no-tag policy:

“The Mercer Island School District and school teams have recently revisited expectations for student behavior to address student safety. This means while at play, especially during recess and unstructured time, students are expected to keep their hands to themselves. The rationale behind this is to ensure the physical and emotional safety of all students.

“School staffs are working with students in the classroom to ensure that there are many alternative games available at recess and during unsupervised play, so that our kids can still have fun, be with their friends, move their bodies and give their brains a break.”

When I was a kid, during recess we could take our pick among kickball, four-square (boring), or capture the flag. Sometimes, we’d play dodge ball. Most of the time, everyone else wanted to play kickball. I wasn’t great at kicking a ball, and there was too much standing around. I could run fast though. I always loved it when we got to play capture the flag. Continue reading at lastresistance.com.

Boehner – Of Name Calling and Karma

Earlier this month soon to be Ex-Speaker John Boehner, (RINO, OH) called grassroots conservatives “bad garbage.” Then he resigned. Yesterday Rep. Peter King (RINO, NY) called grassroots conservatives “crazies.” I wonder if Mahatma Gandhi is trying to tell us something from his grave?

Report: FBI Recovers Deleted Hillary Clinton Emails

Clinton Emails Recovered

Al Branco, Americans for Limited Government

The FBI has reportedly been able to recover emails deleted from Hillary Clinton’s email server in its investigation of her use of a personal, private server for official business as Secretary of State.

From Bloomberg Politics: 

The FBI has recovered personal and work-related e-mails from the private computer server used by Hillary Clinton during her time as secretary of state, according to a person familiar with the investigation.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation’s success at salvaging personal e-mails that Clinton said had been deleted raises the possibility that the Democratic presidential candidate’s correspondence eventually could become public. The disclosure of such e-mails would likely fan the controversy over Clinton’s use of a private e-mail system for official business.

The FBI is investigating how and why classified information ended up on Clinton’s server. The probe probably will take at least several more months, according to the person, who described the matter on condition of anonymity because the investigation is continuing and deals with sensitive information. Read the rest of the story here.
