Good Bye Blue Dogs

Consider this: If Mary Landrieu loses her runoff in Louisiana on Dec 6th there will be not one Democrat controlled house chamber, governor or US Senator from the Carolinas to Texas. Put that in your pipe and smoke it Mr. Obama.



Amazingly, Blue Dog Southern Democrats are still analyzing what happened in the last election and how to get competitive again. They think pocketbook issues (as they see them) like raising the minimum wage, are the road to redemption. Well maybe, but stuff like that has about as much chance of success as handing out toys in Kabul hoping to change the hearts and minds of the Taliban. Good luck.

The facts are,  the Democratic Party cannot win without working class whites. In Arkansas a two term incumbent Senator won just 31% of the white vote (with the Clintons campaigning their asses off for him). In Louisiana Landrieu got 18 measly percent! No way in Hell anyone is going to win with those kinds of numbers I don't give a damn if every illegal and every minority in the state votes twice! So what's the problem? Why can't Democrats attract white voters?

It's simple really, white middle-class and working class voters perceive the Democratic Party as their enemy. We're the ones who "didn't build that". We're the racists who need to be punished. We're the ones who's kids are turned away from our universities in favor of a "dreamer" who is way way WAY less qualified. We're the ones who hate gays, "war on women" and cling to our guns and religion. We are the fall guy when Democrats make their pitch to any and every interest group under the sun. We're the bad guys not to be respected or listened to, and we should just shut up and continue to work our asses off to pay for everybody else's food, clothing, shelter, entertainment, drugs, booze and degenerate lifestyle.

So to the Southern Democrat...the very best of luck in your efforts. But the fact is you have worked very hard over many decades to change your image from a Henry "Scoop" Jackson to Justin Bieber, and you can live with the damn results.

US Ebola Survivors Gather for First Time

Ebola Survivors Gathered Together Showing Little or No
After Affects of the Dangerous Scourge
Ebola.com
Six American Ebola survivors, meeting together for the first time as a group Wednesday on TODAY, opened up about the unusual bond they share and the unique reasons they have to be thankful this holiday season. TODAY’s Matt Lauer, who did the interview in full hazmat gear and behind a plate-glass partition, pointed out that while several of the survivors had doubts about participating in the interview, they all jumped at the opportunity to meet each other. All the survivors said they had no regrets about the choices they made, whether serving abroad in West Africa or treating Ebola-stricken patients in the United States.

On Thanksgiving:

"There is one day that is ours. Thanksgiving Day is the one day that is purely American." - O. Henry (1862 - 1910)
Despite our present political atmosphere, as someone who spent most of their early life living in Europe, believe me when I say: We as Americans have much to be thankful for. 

Happy Thanksgiving from DMF

The Great Emperor Feeds His People

This is Called Justice in Obama's Black America

Supposed Brown Shooting Witnesses Testimonies
Full of Lies and Inconsistencies

Not Very Good at Spelling Either  
from AP:

An Associated Press review of thousands of pages of grand jury documents reveals numerous examples of statements made during the shooting investigation that were inconsistent, fabricated or provably wrong. Media coverage of the aftermath made it into the grand jury proceedings.

Jurors were presented with dueling versions from Wilson and Dorian Johnson, who was walking with Brown during the Aug. 9 confrontation. Johnson painted Wilson as provoking the violence, while Wilson said Brown was the aggressor. Other witness accounts also were clearly wrong.
One woman, who said she was smoking a cigarette with a friend nearby, claimed she saw a second police officer in the passenger seat of Wilson's vehicle. When quizzed by a prosecutor, she elaborated: The officer was white, "middle age or young" and in uniform. She said she was positive there was a second officer — even though there was not.
Another woman testified that she saw Brown leaning through the officer's window "from his navel up," with his hand moving up and down, as if he were punching the officer. But when the same witness returned to testify again on another day, she said she suffers from mental disorder, has racist views and that she has trouble distinguishing the truth from things she had read online. Prosecutors suggested the woman had fabricated the entire incident, and wasn't even at the scene the day of the shooting.
Another witness had told the FBI after the shooting that he saw Wilson shoot Brown in the back, and then stand over his prone body to finish him off. But in his grand jury testimony, this witness, acknowledged that he had not seen that part of the shooting, and that what he told the FBI was "based on me being where I'm from and that can be the only assumption that I have."
Another man, describing himself as a friend of Brown's, told a federal investigator that he heard the first gunshot, looked out his window and saw an officer with a gun drawn and Brown "on his knees with his hands in the air." He added: "I seen him shoot him in the head."
 _________________________________

Justice was what they wanted? They would have us believe that it is better that Wilson go to prison an innocent man, than the "wrongful death" of the "unarmed", "gentle giant" Michael Brown go unpunished and "the community's" rage go untended.


Mary Possibly Facing the Worst Senatorial Loss in 50 years.


Landrieu May Go Down Harder Then Expected 
by Robert Janicki
Early voting in Louisiana began this past Saturday and voting percentages are up significantly from the primary election held on November 4th as part of the national midterm congressional elections.  The patterns suggest Landrieu will not only lose, but lose very badly with a rout that hasn't been seen in senatorial elections in 50 years.
Pollster John Couvillon believes that the election could go 62-38 for Congressman Dr. Bill Cassidy, which would be a monumental rebuke of Mary Landrieu and might well continue to be viewed as a referendum denunciation of Obama's failed radical liberal policies.

Here you can see a complete breakdown of details inside Couvillion's polling and analysis.

And just a side note: Once again, the Times-Picayune/NOLA.com has endorsed Sen. Mary Landrieu over her challenger Rep. Bill Cassidy.

Chuck Schumer: Passing Obamacare in 2010 Was a Mistake

I Really Really Dislike This Guy
I’d say passing Obamacare at any time was a mistake. The program was and is a train wreck which is still piling up. The Dems know it. The American people know it. And it is the reason, to a large degree, why the Senate and the House are in GOP hands.

From a purely political standpoint, pushing Obamacare through without even half of the American people on board was a pretty boneheaded move.
“We took their mandate and put all of our focus on the wrong problem—health care reform.”
The third-ranking Senate Democrat noted that just about 5 percent of registered voters in the United States lacked health insurance before the implementation of the law, arguing that to focus on a problem affecting such “a small percentage of the electoral made no political sense.”

Of course he says this now.

On Ferguson

The morning after the made for TV event that was the spectacle of the first night's rioting in Ferguson (I write it that way as there is probably more to come) and social media is alive with comment. Conservatives and law and order types are doing a bit of an end-zone dance at Officer Wilson's not having been indicted, and Liberals are falling all over themselves to burnish their empathy credentials by showing how "down" they are with the miscreants burning, looting, and injuring.

Like any of these incendiary situations, there really are only "less bad" outcomes, and no real good ones. There are parents, and friends, and relatives who grieve the death of their son and friend. There is a policeman who feared for his life and reacted. There are people who believe they cannot get a square deal from the police. There are people who believe those people should be more restrained in their reactions. Their are business owners waking up today to ruin.

Let's face it. There is no rational logic to looting, burning, and destroying police cars--but this isn't a logical or rational reaction. This is emotion, and we need to view it in those terms. A grand jury has reviewed the evidence and decided not to indict--something RARE indeed in grand jury proceedings (a sign of just how weak the case was). Every single witness corroborating Officer Wilson's testimony was black. No person who made statements about him having shot Mr. Brown in the back actually witnessed the conflict. Those of us sitting in our comfy places watching and tut-tutting probably don't understand deeply enough the mistrust that exists between a good bit of the black community and police forces. I'll wager that if we were to get some of these hooligans to sit down and present them with the evidence, they might even come to the same conclusion as the grand jury--but their reactions would still be the same. This isn't necessarily about Brown's death, it is about perceptions built up over years and simmering rage. The Ferguson incident simply provides a convenient outlet for these emotions.

The inconvenient thing though, is that another man's life and liberty were on the line here, a man paid to protect and keep order, a man who approached two men walking down the middle of the street impeding traffic, when sidewalks were available to them. Putting aside for a moment, this clearly unobjectionable instance of where we as a civil society would wish our police to get involved, upon closer inspection, the men met the description of two men who had just robbed a convenience store and roughed up the proprietor, something store videos later confirmed. I truly believe that there are those protesting in the streets and those sitting in comfy dens of liberal smugness who find none of this important, and that deep down, they would have us sacrifice Officer Brown's freedom in order to sate their sense of injury. They would have us believe that it is better that Wilson go to prison an innocent man, than the "wrongful death" of the "unarmed", "gentle giant" Michael Brown go unpunished and "the community's" rage go untended.

What good comes of this tragic situation? For one thing, the riots last summer and the response shown by law enforcement raise important questions about the increasing militarization of police departments, something that causes me a good deal of pause. Secondly, and this is something Mr. Brown's family has taken up as a cause, there is the growing sense that police should wear body cameras not whose purpose would be not unlike that of the dashboard cameras with which we have all become familiar. These cameras are for the protection of the public AND police alike, and rather than spending gobs of cash on uparmored HUMVEES, I'd like to see cops on the beat so equipped.

And so Ferguson will burn for a few more days, innocent businesses will be ruined, cable news will be fed, and race victimization merchants will take to the hustings, chief among them our President and Attorney General. And the Party which birthed them (Messers Obama and Holder) will continue to treat African Americans as vassals, beholden to the machine that keeps them in the conditions that create the tensions we see spilling over on our TV sets.

Remember.....It's All About Mike

A Few of the Rave Reviews From Last Night...



Oval Office Outlaw

Obama's Agenda and the Democrat Party Long-Term Health

"President Obama's biggest problem over the next two years may not be coming from recalcitrant Republicans, but from members of his own party blanching at his activist agenda over the final years of his presidency. While the midterm election results suggested widespread dissatisfaction with the president's policies, Obama nonetheless is planning to press forward on several polarizing decisions in his final two years. It could help advance his legacy, but come at the expense of the Democratic Party's long-term health.
 "Three of the administration's biggest agenda items -- threatening a veto of bipartisan legislation authorizing construction of the Keystone XL pipeline, reaching a nuclear deal with Iran, and issuing an executive order legalizing millions of illegal immigrants -- divide Democrats, and unite Republicans. If the president moves forward with all of them, it would aggravate fissures in an increasingly-divided Democratic Party. 
And it would put Hillary Clinton, his party's expected 2016 standard-bearer, in an uncomfortable position even before she announces her candidacy. She's already avoided taking stances, if not outright rejecting the direction Obama is heading during his final two years in office." — Josh Kraushaar, National Journal

About to Commit An Act of Constitutional Infamy


by Peter Wehner 
"Mr. Obama is now acting like, in his words, an “emperor.” His hypocrisy is, even by his standards, staggering.  But hypocrisy is not unusual in politicians and presidents; firing a missile aimed at our constitutional form of government is. And that is what Mr. Obama is about to do.
As the liberal law professor Jonathan Turley put it last night, this is a “particularly dangerous moment” for the president to defy the will of Congress yet again, just 15 days after an election in which the American people registered their emphatic (anti-Obama) judgment. “What the president is suggesting is tearing at the very fabric of the Constitution,” according to Professor Turley. “We have a separation of powers that gives us balance. And that doesn’t protect the branches — it’s not there to protect the executive branch or legislative branch — it’s to protect liberty. It’s to prevent any branch from assuming so much control that they become a threat to liberty.”
What is about to happen may be the low point in a presidency filled with them. Mr. Obama is acting in a way that he himself knows–that he himself has said–is unconstitutional and indefensible. No matter. In an act of unmatched narcissism and selfishness, the president will create–he is thirsting to create–a constitutional crisis that is utterly unnecessary and will further polarize our political culture.
Mr. Obama is about to commit an act of constitutional infamy. This is a stain that will stay with him."

Obama Unleashes New Grubergate Damage Control Team

Think-Progress Takes Race Baiting to a Whole New Level


Fracking in California is taking place on the southern, coastal counties of California such as Monterey, Kern, and Ventura.  They’re statistically more likely to have non-white students because most people in these counties are non-white, therefore most children in school are non-white. This means that any school that is close to where fracking is taking places in these counties has a higher chance of being primarily non-white. DUH!

Considering the price of gasoline in California, I can’t imagine why one would want to oppose fracking. Liberals often cite groundwater contamination, while also claiming Republicans are anti-science.  The most hazardous possibility is a surface spill, however those possibilities are always present with conventional drilling as well. 

I was going to say, the only thing that is going to happen to anyone by being “exposed” to hydraulic fracturing is perhaps some of these people may receive a good paying job they so desperately need in the People's Republic of California and this god-awful Obama economy.

Think-Progress loves to play on their audience's ignorance.


Liberal Jonathan Turley Agrees To Serve as Lead Counsel for House of Representatives in Constitutional Challenge



This is a very interesting development.  Jonathan Turley is a leading liberal lawyer and a supporter of some form of national health care, but has also been a strong voice criticizing Obama’s unconstitutional usurpations.  I still think seeking judicial refereeing of a political fight between the other two branches is a weak move, but I’ll be nonetheless interested to hear his arguments.

For that reason, it may come as little surprise this morning that I have agreed to represent the United States House of Representatives in its challenge of unilateral, unconstitutional actions taken by the Obama Administration with respect to implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA)."

"I have previously testified that I believe that judicial review is needed to rebalance the powers of the branches in our system after years of erosion of legislative authority.  Clearly, some take the view of a fait accompli in this fundamental change in our constitutional system.  This resignation over the dominance of the Executive Branch is the subject of much of my recent academic writings, including two forthcoming works.  For that reason, to quote the movie Jerry Maguire, the House “had me at hello” in seeking a ruling to reinforce the line of authority between the branches."

Irony and Karma and Poetic Justice...All Rolled Into One

Ferguson Instigator Has Car Stolen At Anti-Police Protest

         Image via Western Journalism
For more than three months, Ferguson Mo. has been the target of protesters and agitators upset over the police shooting that resulted in the death of Hood Rat, Mike Brown. Despite the fact that subsequently released evidence indicate that Officer Darren Wilson’s account of the incident was accurate, the Ferguson Police Department continues to face bitter backlash by disruptive activists.
The protests continue even during the Grand Jurors’ deliberation, however, with activists like Elizabeth Vega leading demonstrations this week.
Among Twitter posts describing the protests and disparaging authority figures, Vega informed her social media followers that her car was stolen in the aftermath of one such demonstration.
The perceived irony of Vega losing her vehicle as her cohorts curse those who could assist in its recovery was not lost on numerous Twitter users.


....and this little Twitter gem.

Keystone Pipeline Vote: Mary's Dems Vote NO GO

The Freak Show In Ferguson Is About To Begin

And It Will Not End Well For Anyone


by Robert Janicki
Protesters in Ferguson, Missouri, are prepping full-time for the moment the St. Louis County Grand Jury renders a decision whether Ferguson police office Darren Wilson will be charged in the death of 18 year Michael Brown back in early August.  The announcement could come at any time.  Authorities have indicated they will not announce in advance when the decision will come down.  I suspect that authorities are brainstorming on the best time of day or night to make the announcement in order to throw off what will surely be wide spread protests of varying intensities in and around Ferguson and St. Louis County.
Missouri Governor Jay Nixon (D) activated the Missouri National Guard on Monday to back up local police in Ferguson, St. Louis and Missouri State Police for expected protests breaking out when the Grand Jury decision is made public.
Protesters aren't interested in real justice.  They are interested in vigilante justice.  They are demanding that Darren Wilson be charged with first degree murder.  Anything less will be unacceptable to this mob of domestic terrorists.  The protest activists have said it's time for white people to feel uncomfortable and they will take it upon themselves to teach whites what the feeling of being uncomfortable is all about.  If this isn't domestic terrorism, I'm not certain what the definition of domestic terrorism might be.
The activists have come up with a long list of targets they plan to include in their protests.  The vast majority of these targets are completely unrelated to the incident in Ferguson, which raises the question of the protesters motives.  Targeting Boeing, Anheuser-Busch, Emerson Electric, and the St. Louis Art Museum, etc., doesn't make any rational sense, unless the protesters want to start some kind of rebellion between whites and blacks.
The protesters claim they do not want to see violence, but their planning seems to belie their real motives and intentions, which appear to be to set a series of events in motion that will do little to contain violence and everything that will lead to inciting violence among the masses of people in Ferguson and the surrounding area of St. Louis County.

Shoe Scrapers R Us


Springer
Barack Obama just keeps stepping in it. He's never missed an opportunity to make a situation worse by lying about it. Whenever something leaks out, his response is predictable: "I just learned about this". 
Whenever something Obama is doing comes to light, his first reaction has never been to address the actual problem. The only problem he perceives is the potential for political fallout. Predictably, he waits to see what he needs to do to make sure no responsibility sticks to him. What happened in Benghazi, what's going on in the VA, the ongoing saga of the Obamacare farce, Biden's latest gaffe, what the IRS is doing, etc., all news to him when and if it reaches the public' s awareness.
This time, with the recent revelations about Obamacare, it looks like he's got some gruber on his shoe. Lucky for him, he lives in a country where the entreprenuerial spirit is still strong. Anytime there's an opportunity to capitalize on something, somebody will step up. Private citizens do that in this country, Mr. Obama. This time it's a little boutique in DC that specializes in shoe scrapers. As long as Obama keeps it up, they're sure to make a fortune.

Has Obama Sought Legal Counsel On Immigration?

"If the White House press corps wants to keep government honest, here's a question to ask as President Obama prepares to legalize millions of undocumented immigrants by executive order: Has he sought, and does he have, any written legal justification from the Attorney General and the Justice Department's Office of Legal Counsel (OLC) for his actions?
This would be standard operating procedure in any normal Presidency....
It's possible Messrs. Obama and Holder haven't sought an immigration opinion because they suspect there's little chance that even a pliant Office of Legal Counsel could find a legal justification. Prosecutorial discretion is a vital legal concept, but it is supposed to be exercised in individual cases, not to justify a refusal to follow the law against entire classes of people." — The Editors, The Wall Street Journal

ISIS Sets Sights on Saudi Arabia


Not Really a Good Time to be a Prince
"In a 17-minute audio message, purportedly from its elusive leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the group sets its sights firmly on Saudi Arabia, birthplace of Islam and the world's largest oil producer and exporter.
The speaker does not refer to it as Saudi Arabia, since this is a name derived from the ruling tribe, the al-Saud, whose authority ISIS does not accept.  Instead he calls it "the land of Haramayn", the land of the two holy places, meaning Mecca and Medina.
Reaching out to ISIS's growing number of Saudi followers, he sets out a target list for attack, starting with the Shia who make up a minority of Saudi nationals, living mostly in the oil-rich Eastern Province, and whom hardline Salafi radicals view as heretics.  So deep are the sectarian divisions opened up in the Middle East by the insurgency in Iraq that many Saudis view ISIS not as a marauding band of terrorists but as brave defenders of Sunni Islam against the encroaching forces of Iran and its Shia allies.
Saudi officials have long been warning that their country is the primary target of ISIS.
Having declared itself a caliphate this summer, it was inevitable that sooner or later the group would turn its attention to the largest and most important country in the region.  Saudi Arabia's supreme religious authority, the grand mufti, has branded IS as the "greatest enemy of Islam".
A recent op-ed written in the New York Times by Saudis close to the government said: "Saudi Arabia is the only authority in the region with the power and legitimacy to bring IS down."
Today the Saudis find themselves in an extremely uncomfortable position.  Their air force has joined the US-led coalition in conducting numerous air strikes against IS positions in Syria, yet this is deeply unpopular with many Saudis.  A prince who has flown sorties against IS in an F15 jet has reportedly received death threats. 
More than 2,000 Saudi nationals are estimated to have joined the ranks of ISIS, bringing with them an extreme brand of "takfiri" ideology that views large portions of the population with suspicion and intolerance."

AWD: An Open Letter to Ghetto Black America

The organizers of the #Ferguson riots to come when Officer Darren Wilson is not
indicted are telling white people they will have to “deal with it.” And deal with it,
I hope the people in St Louis do. Enough is a whole hell of a lot more than enough! 

by Angry White Dude
Dear Ghetto Black America,
We’ve needed to have this talk for a long time. Because of the rules of political correctness, we have been prohibited from speaking our mind about your behavior. But that time has ended. Decent people in America are tired of your behavior and, more specifically, we are tired of you!
AWD should define what I mean by “ghetto blacks.” I do not use this term to define all black people. There are many, many black people in America who live peaceful, law-abiding lives. They contribute to America in a very meaningful way. I am not referring to them as ghetto blacks. They are welcome in my home and as my friends. But there is a too-sizable percentage of the black population that remains in “the ghetto.”
Ghetto blacks are those who are a burden to society and decent, responsible people of all races. Ghetto blacks are those who have dropped out of school, have numerous illegitimate children with several “baby-daddies,” pack our courts and fill our prisons because of rampant crime, etc. Ghetto blacks are those who will not work and are content to live on welfare and other social programs. These people will stand in line 8 hours with thousands of other ghetto blacks in 100 degree heat for a spot on the waiting list for Section 8 housing but won’t fill out a job application as we witnessed in Atlanta last year. Ghetto blacks are violent, sullen, ignorant, disrespectful, immoral, profane and filled with hatred. They especially possess a true hatred of all white people.
Ghetto blacks ridicule black students who make good grades as “being white” and blame their own failures on whitey, the man, Jim Crow or slavery. Ghetto blacks idolize gangstas, pimps and rappers covered in tattoos and bullet wounds. They ridicule other blacks who choose to be responsible, educated and contribute to society as “selling out.”
Ghetto blacks are led by race pimps like Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and Louis Farrakhan whose message of hatred further poisons the empty souls of other ghetto blacks. If you are black and reading this, you will know if you are a ghetto black or not.
Because of the corruption of government, ghetto blacks have been allowed to live off of American taxpayers without producing anything for generations. Welfare, social programs, Affirmative Action, Section 8 housing, etc have turned you into violent,worthless moochers who are a tremendous burden on productive Americans. The reward we receive for feeding, clothing and housing you is ignorance, violence, hatred and crime. We, the responsible, law-abiding Americans have had enough....."
I have said many times over I believe each race can achieve equally. I also believe in judging everyone by their actions and not the color of their skin. I don’t like trashy people of any race so don’t waste your time calling me a racist.

Who Be the Stupid Ones?

Middle Finger News Guest Editorial
By Dr. Jonathan Gruber

I’m not the egomaniacal, deceptive monster you think I am. Making the rounds on the internet is an unflattering videos of me speaking at an academic conference, a place where great minds share the fruits of scholarship.

To the uninformed viewer, one of my remarks may seem disparaging, as if I were suggesting American voters suffer from below-average intelligence. The 22-second clip if often viewed out of context, and it’s a far cry from what I was clumsily trying to express, which was simply this:

You stupid. Me not stupid.

Here’s the rub: I was recruited to help with the architecture of the Affordable Care Act. My only goal, I can assure you, was to humbly offer my expertise to improve the way health care in the U.S. is financed, administered and regulated. In short, we wanted to reduce overall costs, improve efficiency, and extend quality coverage to everyone. However, we faced seemingly insurmountable political barriers, because people wanted to know who the hell was going to pay for everything. Voters wouldn’t accept a law based on raising taxes or costs to individuals, even if everyone would benefit from it. Pardon me, I’m using too many long sentences. If I may, I’ll put my thoughts in terms I think you’ll find rather comprehensible:

I smart, but me good. I use brain to help you. You stupid. But I like you.

After thousands of hours of pure thinking, during which I literally burned millions of calories, I understood we needed to obfuscate the content of ACA, to spread its many provisions, sections, bells and whistles between thousands of pages, thereby hiding the costs and confusing legislators into concession. People are more likely to support something they don’t fully understand, especially if you assure them it’s for their own good. What we came up with was a nation-sized Rube Goldberg machine, beautifully complex and clever. Yes, we took a few liberties with the truth, but only to impose a law on people for their own good. That’s not wrong, is it? What is wrong is a few self-interested politicians and fear-mongering demagogues trying to get in the way. Oh dear, I’ve adopted my fancy speak again. Allow me to rephrase:

Bad guys say: we no want doctors for all people. Bad guys say: we like people get sick and have no doctors. Not me. I good and me smart. I write law with many big words to trick bad guys. Bad guys say: we ok with law, now. Ha ha.

That’s to say, we wrote the bill in tortured way so the Congressional Budget Office would not score the health insurance mandate as a tax. It would have been much better to simply give people money to offset their health care costs, but that was not feasible, politically speaking, so we had to make changes to the tax code that no one can understand anyway. Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage, as you can see my dear imbiciles. Oh my, I’ve slipped into brainy talk again. What a goof. Believe me, I don’t in any way doubt your intelligence, it’s just that we economists tend to communicate in academic shoptalk. Let me summarize this heartfelt mea culpa by putting my thoughts in the simplest terms.

You stupid. Me smart. Really.

Jonathan Gruber is the Nathaniel Dubbles Professor of Advanced Superior Economics at MIT. He has written many books, most notably “If My Brain Could Talk” and “Mitt Romney Isn't as Smart as I.” 
He is the 2013 recipient of the “Smartest Guy in the Room” award by the Swedish Institute for Cognitive Gymnastics.

See you at Mardi Gras Mary!


Has this been a great election or what? First we drub the Democrats like it's 1984 and then we get to watch Mary Landrieu swing in the wind for another month or so. There she is in a panic, languishing in her purgatorial world of eroding power with the only outcome being humiliation and ignominy.

It's obvious this job gave her life purpose and meaning. Being Senator for her wasn't a means to an end, it was the end. She came from money, a good family, the best of everything, but what did she accomplish? Apart from politics not much. But she was not just a good team player, she was the BEST team player! No better Senator for the Democratic Party than Mary Landrieu! Her home in DC (she uses her parent's old La. homestead as her home of record - co-owned by her and her seven siblings) is fundraising central for the Dems. During campaign season not a week goes by without some function or another taking place at her "townhouse" (townhouse in this context being a multi-million dollar 7400 sq ft mansion). Yes indeed, she has been the Washington Democratic establishment's best friend.

Which makes it all the more heartbreaking that Chuck and Harry have abandoned her in HER hour of need. Yes friends, the Dems have decided Mary is not a good investment any longer. They tried, nobody can say they didn't, but it makes no sense to throw good money after bad...and Mary Landrieu is soooo over. See you at Mardi Gras Mary!

ISIS Signs Free Agent Al-Qaida to Short Term Contract

ISTANBUL (AP) -- Militant leaders from the Islamic State group and al-Qaida gathered at a farm house in northern Syria last week and agreed on a plan to stop fighting each other and work together against their opponents, a high-level Syrian opposition official and a rebel commander have told The Associated Press.
IS - the group that has seized nearly a third of Syria and Iraq with a campaign of brutality and beheadings this year - and al-Qaida's affiliate in Syria, known as the Nusra Front, have fought each other bitterly for more than a year to dominate the rebellion against Syrian President Bashar Assad.
Cooperation, however, would fall short of unifying the rival groups, and experts believe any pact between the two sides could easily unravel. U.S. intelligence officials have been watching the groups closely and say a full merger is not expected soon - if ever. A U.S. official with access to intelligence about Syria said the American intelligence community has not seen any indications of a shift in the two groups' strategy, but added that he could not rule out tactical deals on the ground. 
The official said IS and the Nusra Front agreed to work to destroy the Syrian Revolutionaries Front, a prominent rebel faction armed and trained by the United States and led by a fighter named Jamal Maarouf. They agreed to keep fighting until all of the force, estimated to be 10,000 to 12,000 fighters, was eliminated, the official said.

Poopy Pants Goes For World Record

NBC Today Show's Al Roker, who admitted he pooped his pants when he first met  Barack Obama at the White House, is doing a little shameless resume' padding, trying to break the World Record for telling us it's either hot or cold, raining or not outside.  The present record is 34 straight hours. Smart choice of brown suit, Al.


Brilliant Strategy : After Crushing Defeat, Dems Move Even Further to The Left

After an almost three hour meeting today Dingy Harry emerged victorious and will remain dems top leader in the Senate.  Citing his time as minority leader under President George W. Bush , Reid said his goal was not to obstruct the new majority. Yeah, we remember those days Harry
In a grab for straws move, Reid elevated the dems Far Left Faux Indian, Senator Elizabeth Warren to the position of Commissar of Public Policy Communications (Ministry of Truth).  Elevating Warren is seen as an indication that the new Senate Democratic minority is less interested in bipartisan compromises, even as the White House and Senate Republicans are signaling they want to cut deals in the new Congress. It also place Warren in a position to get face-time before the 2016 Presidential race ramps up. Warren is being touted by many to run for the White House.

Great News for Public Funded Grant Seeking Climate Change “Scientists.”

Commies Agree To Keep Pushing ‘Climate Change’ Hoax 


Yes, it's great news. The leaders of Communist China and Communist America, led by one of the worlds foremost climate change expert, Secretary of State John F. Kerry, have agreed to agree that their nations, as two of the most notorious polluters of mother earth, should maybe try to do something about all that.

No mention of the over-populated and world class polluters of the Indian Sub Continent, Southeast Asia or the rest of the backward third world who seem to get off the hook when it comes strict regulations or forking over money for things like this. Then again, they got no Climate Change Scientist or money to extort for the cause.  
"The landmark agreement, jointly announced here by President Obama and President Xi Jinping, includes new targets for carbon emissions reductions by the United States and a first-ever commitment by China to stop its emissions from growing by 2030.
Administration officials said the agreement, which was worked out quietly between the United States and China over nine months and included a letter from Mr. Obama to Mr. Xi proposing a joint approach, could galvanize efforts to negotiate a new global climate agreement by 2015."
During a joint press conference Wednesday, the two presidents said lots of nice words about each other and their very productive meeting over the last two days, during which they agreed, according to President Xi, “to continue to advance the development of a new model of major-country relations between China and the United States. We had in-depth discussions on the priority areas for advancing such relationship” (i.e. Obama agreed to bend over for our Chinese masters....) 

But we are hoping that means more Star Trek cosplay.

They also agreed that terrorism is bad, so yay! There’s international consensus on that, finally.

Moochelle Vows Not To Be Outdone By a Kardashian.......




Have Americans Overcoming our 'Stupidity'

Herman Cain
"You know by now that ObamaCare architect Jonathan Gruber recently admitted they intentionally misled the public about the law because they thought we were too stupid to support the bill. Democrats have played this game for a long time. Repeatedly hammer messages like "access to health care" while conveniently ignoring the market disruptions that come with it, and justify it all by asserting that Americans are too stupid to handle the truth.
But a shocking development is unfolding, and it's horrifying for the Democrats. The polls didn't really predict it before Election Day, but we seem to be emerging from our "stupidity" quite nicely. First, let's consider the long-term picture here. Of the 59 Democrats who voted for ObamaCare in 2010 (remember that Ted Kennedy had already died but Harry Reid used reconciliation to pass the final bill), 28 have already left the Senate or will be leaving in January. And that will rise to 29 if, as expected, Mary Landrieu loses her runoff in December.
So basically half the Democrats who backed ObamaCare in the Senate will be gone. In four years! 
That's astonishing. Now they didn't all run for re-election and lose. Some of them retired. But they're still gone, and that's simply a stunning turnover in such a small period of time. The American people have understood since ObamaCare passed what a scam it was. 
In Alaska, Iowa, North Carolina, Colorado and Arkansas, Democrats who voted for ObamaCare were unceremoniously shown the exits by the voters in their respective states. (And you're next, Louisiana!)
People are paying attention, and every time they have the opportunity to do something about it, they're making it clear: They hate ObamaCare, and they resent the dishonesty and subterfuge that were used to pass it. It's too late to make Obama pay a price at the ballot box, regrettably, but maybe the voters will remember this and not reward another Democrat who has a tendency to spew nonsense based on low regard for the intelligence of the public."

Bobby Jindal Endorses The Convention of States Project


Louisiana Gov.Bobby Jindal knows first-hand about how Washington D.C. strips away state's rights in its insatiable thirst to control everything from education to healthcare to the environment.  Gov. Jindal has been a tireless champion of Tenth Amendment rights, which resonates with the Convention of States volunteers and supporters.  In fact, it resonates with all Americans looking for common sense from its leaders and real solutions that get government out of our daily lives. 

Recently Jindal remarked from the State Capital: 
"The federal government has clearly grown far beyond the size and scope that the Founders ever envisioned.  Over-spending, excessive regulatory overreach, and disdain for individual liberty all run rampant in Washington D.C. Luckily, the Founders gave us a mechanism to reform a runaway federal government in Article V of the Constitution.  We can -- and we must -- scale back the monstrosity that our federal government has become.  For this reason, I support the Convention of States project efforts to call an Article V convention to propose amendments to restrain the size of the federal government."

The Convention of States  Project, is dedicated to reducing the power of the federal government through the use of Article V of the Constitution.  The COS Project currently has organized leadership in 43 states around the country, including thousands of volunteers committed to stopping the federal government's abuse of power. 

Three Article V applications have already been passed in Alaska, Florida and Georgia. Louisiana is expected to be the fourth.

Please Stop Making Stupid People Famous

Chuck C. Johnson is a Edward R. Murrow / Drudge want-a-be.  After slipping Andrew Brietbart a small piece of info that became a scoop, he attach himself to Brietbart’s legacy after his death. He now runs a website called GotNews.

He continues to be linked by bloggers even though his record has been absolutely abysmal, filled with incompetent factual errors, wildly incorrect predictions, smears of Ebola doctors and nurses, stalking and outing private information of suspected Ebola patients, watermarked other's images and back dated stories to claim a scoop.

His reporting on Ferguson Mo. was sensationalized to the extreme for publicity.  He is become an embarrassment and hindrance to people on the right trying to get out the truth through the den of noise of the vintage media.

Today Chuck informed the world via Twitter that he’s actually a hero who stopped the spread of Ebola by inciting panic, because that’s how science works — by making people scared.


Stop Making Stupid People Famous......

Interesting......

I found it interesting the lefty websites lack of Veteran Day Post. Few and far between, the ones I did find had a air of sarcasm as if it pained them to even mention it.  Sad they really don't understand where their freedoms they so tout but often badly misinterpret the meanings of get their protection, and fail to honor the Men and Women who through our history fought and died to guarantee them. 

And just message to our friends on the left:
Heroes don't wear Capes, they wear DOG TAGS!

Thank You Veterans

The Fraud on America is Now Fully Revealed

by Robert Janicki

How can we forget Nancy Pelosi telling America in 2010, "But we have to pass the bill so you can find out what is in it, away from the fog of the controversy."

Well, now we know what's in it and this confirms it was a fraud.  Now we have found out how the fraud was perpetrated on the rest of America.  Warning:  If you voted for Obama or supported Obamacare, you aren't going to like finding out that you were played for a fool by liberal progressives in the White House, the Senate and the House.
New video has surfaced of Jonathan Gruber, the MIT economist hired by the Obama administration to help craft the Affordable Care Act, bragging about the designed lack of transparency in the law, which, he suggested, played on the "stupidity of the American voter." - FreedomWorks 
Watch the video as Jonathan Gruber lays it all out.  The Obama administration purposely committed a fraud on America in order to get the Affordable Care Act passed.  Remember, not one Republican in either the the House or Senate voted for Obamacare (ACA) and it becomes painfully obvious with this revelation why Obamacare should be repealed.  The Obama administration needs to be held responsible for this criminal fraud on America.

Even Liberals Begin to Think MSNBC Stinks


"The Democrats' sinking fortunes have been pretty accurately charted in the declining ratings at MSNBC, the party's house network, which culminated, on election night, in a 22% fall from the last midterm election in the all-important 25-to-54 age group.
MSNBC's problem is almost exactly the same as the Democrats' problem: It built its future around a vivid and dramatic hero who, unfortunately, turned out to be both opaque and conflict averse. MSNBC now has a lineup of ever-righteous and often sulky defenders of President Barack Obama, who seem, not just to conservatives but to many liberals, too, bizarrely tone deaf and lost in time."
