President Obama - This Is Why Taxing The Rich Won't Work

Blog author's comments - This is a good and informative video but unfortunately facts, figures, common sense and logic do not work on the political left. They continually use class warfare.

The proposals from the White House – the first to use hard numbers – include a $1.6 trillion tax increase, a $50 billion stimulus package and new presidential powers to raise the federal debt limit without congressional approval.

What was presented is proof that Obama actually wants to go over the fiscal he can call a press conference and blame the Republicans for not bargaining with him.

Obama 'Is Not Particularly Concerned' Susan Rice Misled American People

Weekly Standard -- In response to a question from reporter Major Garrett on whether the Obama administration's mishandling of Benghazi raises "core questions of basic competency," press secretary Jay Carney revealed that Barack Obama "is not particularly concerned" about whether Susan Rice misled the American people:

"What the president is worried about, Major, is what happened and why in Benghazi. He is not particularly concerned about whether the ambassador or I went out and talked about the fact that we believed extremists might have been responsible. And whether we named them as al Qaeda or not does not--no, it certainly doesn't have any bearing on what happened and who was responsible as that investigation was continuing on Benghazi."

Blog author's comments - Barack Obama also doesn't appear to be "particularly concerned" that four Americans were murdered by terrorists in Libya on sovereign U.S. soil. Anyone who has followed what happened is aware that the U.S. ambassador, Christopher Stevens, had asked for more security but did not receive it. We also know the attack was not caused by a 'You Tube' video that ridicules Islam's Prophet Muhammad, made by an American citizen. Al Qaeda planned this attack to occur on the anniversary of 9/11.

Obama and others had the chance to help the Americans during the Benghazi attack but did nothing. We have a dead ambassador, we have three other dead Americans, and in the midst of this attack does anyone know where the president was? Why wasn't there orders for help given?

Did Obama expect us to believe that after Osama bin Laden was killed by the Navy SEAL Team 6, that al Qaeda was now much weaker as a terrorist threat? I do not think that bin Laden had been a factor in any actions taken by al Qaeda for years.

Many members of the mainstream media do not care about what happened, the Obama administration does not seem to care enough to take responsibility for their lack of support, but worst of all the people who elected Obama to a second term apparently do not care either.

I believe Obama will nominate Susan Rice as the next Secretary of State and she will be appointed. She did the job which was asked of her and appeared on all the Sunday talk shows using the talking points provided for her, to attempt to cover for Obama's lack of leadership as president.

Disagreeing With Obama Can Ruin Christmas, Says White House Report

Daily Caller -- Any Republican refusal to accept President Barack Obama’s fiscal plan may ruin Christmas for the nation’s retailers, the White House claimed in a report released Monday morning.

“The National Retail Federation is forecasting that holiday sales will grow 4.1 percent this year … [but] if Congress does not act on the President’s plan to extend tax cuts for the middle-class, it will be risking one of the key contributors to growth and jobs in our economy at the most important time of the year for retail stores,” says the report, which was prepared by the Obama White House’s National Economic Council and the president’s Council of Economic Advisers.

“The holiday season is no time to threaten middle-class pocketbooks,” urges the report, titled “The Middle-Class Tax Cuts’ Impact On Consumer Spending & Retailers.”
Blog author's comments - The only thing this administration can do to spur Christmas sales is a mass resignation. That would spread joy around much of the country. Christmas really means nothing to them anyway, they're just looking for an excuse to blame the Republican Party for the stagnant economy and recession, which we've never come out of and won't...not as long as Obama is the president.

Obama is using the extension of the Bush tax cuts to force the rest of his fiscal plan, whatever he decides that will be, on the Republican Party. If anyone believes only the wealthy are going to be hit by what's coming, think again. The fiscal cliff is going to drag everyone else down with it. But now, it's pass my plan or Republicans will ruin Christmas. What is difficult to understand is that the majority of voters supported him and believes what he says.

Atheists Cry Foul Over 'A Charlie Brown Christmas'

Daily Caller -- Charlie Brown’s Christmas is on the outs at an elementary school in Little Rock, Ark. — at least among atheists who are calling foul over a planned student trip to see a stage production of the beloved Peanuts story.

The trouble began when students at Terry Elementary School brought home letters detailing the trip to see “A Charlie Brown Christmas” at a local church, according to a report from Arkansas’ KARK. A parent who had a problem with the play’s content notified the local atheist group of the field trip.

“We’re not saying anything bad about Charlie Brown,” Anne Orsi, vice president of the Arkansas Society of Freethinkers, told KARK. “The problem is that it’s got religious content and it’s being performed in a religious venue and that doesn’t just blur the line between church and state, it oversteps it entirely.”

"A Charlie Brown Christmas“ is about the title character’s struggle to overcome the holiday’s commercialism and embrace the true meaning of Christmas. The holiday classic culminates with the character Linus quoting from the second chapter of Luke.

While students can opt out, the parent whistle blower who preferred to remain unnamed told KARK that she is letting her child go because she does not want her child to be bullied.

The church, Agape, told KARK that they have offered other family friendly shows to students in the past without issue and the Little Rock School district said that they do not endorse any religion.
Blog author's comments - It does not bother me what atheists believe. What does bother me is that some of them try to force their beliefs on the Christians in our country.

The parent is going to let the child attend the school trip but felt it was their duty to inform the 'Arkansas Society of Freethinkers' which is a group that supports atheists and agnostics. I suppose the parent fears that their child’s attendance at this stage production could be a bad thing because the child may actually enjoy the Charlie Brown Christmas story.

The vice president of the Arkansas Society of Freethinkers, said “the problem is that it’s got religious content and it’s being performed in a religious venue and that doesn’t just blur the line between church and state, it oversteps it entirely.” I believe that a large tent could be set up on the school grounds for the play and they would still have a problem with it.

We had thousands of abortions in our country this year, 23 million people are unemployed, 47 million are on food stamps, and we have a $16 trillion deficit, an incompetent government led by an economically illiterate president and his administration. And this is the burning issue of the day for these atheists that I would guess are also liberals? I think the goal of the parent and the 'Arkansas Society of Freethinkers' is to have the school trip canceled for all the children.

NLRB Sues to Reinstate Union Saboteurs at Nursing Homes

Washington Examiner -- President Obama’s National Labor Relations Board asked a judge this week to force a Connecticut nursing home to re-hire employees involved in a labor dispute, including the workers who sabotaged patient homes as they went on strike.

The Service Employees International Union members who worked at HealthBridge went on strike after rejecting the company’s final offer in contract negotiations. HealthBridge cut benefits, pensions, and raises wages 2.2 percent.

“The [NLRB] says those unilateral changes were illegal, and wants the judge to reset the clock so that the union members can continue to work under the terms of the expired contract and continue to negotiate for a new agreement,” The Hartford Courant reports.

That includes the union members who committed acts of sabotage on the way out the door which exploited the weakness of the Alzheimer’s patients in the nursing home in order to make it more difficult for those patients to receive care from the replacement workers. As The Washington Examiner previously noted:

The director of the facility in Newington, Conn., told police that “the name tags on the patients’ doors for the Alzheimer’s ward were mixed up. The photos attached to the medical records for these patients were removed, further complicating, but not making impossible, the identification of the patients. Also, dietary blue stickers affixed to the door name tags were removed.” Some medical equipment also went missing.

Entire column...
Blog author's comments - The relatives who have family in the nursing home affected by the union should get together and sue the SEIU employees. The union people should have been arrested for putting the patients' lives in danger, but the Obama government is trying to get their jobs back.

Obama’s NLRB asked a judge this week to force the nursing home to re-hire employees involved in the labor dispute. This is the kind of thing we can expect from the corrupt administration which the majority of the people in this country voted for. Obama will protect the unions because of their support and money which helped him win a second term.

Examiner Editorial: If a nursing home bears the union label, look elsewhere.

Arizona Gun Store - No Obama Voters Allowed

TPM -- A gun shop in Arizona has a clear message to would-be customers who happened to vote for President Barack Obama: take your business elsewhere.

Southwest Shooting Authority in Pinetop, Ariz. took out an advertisement last week in the local newspaper, the White Mountain Independent, that spelled out the store's new policy in explicit terms.

"If you voted for Barack Obama your business is not welcome at Southwest Shooting Authority," the ad reads. "You have proven that you are not responsible enough to own a firearm."

A sign on the store's front door contains a similar message. Cope Reynolds, the owner of the Southwest Shooting Authority, posted a letter on the website AmmoLand shortly after the election last week to explain his motives, writing that his personal convictions trump profit:

To Whom it May Concern:

I thought you all might be interested in this.

We will try to demonstrate once again that the bottom line for our business is principle, not money.

Yes, it has been damaging at times but our values are intact.

Effective immediately, if you voted for Obama, your money is no good here. You have proven beyond a doubt that you are not responsible enough to own a firearm. We have just put a sign up on the front door to save you the trouble of walking all the way in here...

I took this ad out in our local paper. It will come out in the White Mountain Independent tomorrow, 9 November.

Cope Reynolds
Blog author's comments - Of course the gun shop owner does not know who voted for Obama. But, he has sent a strong message showing what he thinks of Barack Obama and anyone who would vote for him. The shop owner, Mr. Reynolds, doesn't need the Obama voters business. Since Obama's re-election guns and ammunition have been flying off the shelf.

I don't think the owner will lose many customers. I doubt that many Obama supporters buy guns, they trust the government to protect them. Also, if they had their way no one would be allowed to purchase and carry a gun. The shop owner's statement to the Obama voters is quite true. "You have proven that you are not responsible enough to own a firearm."

Obama Vows Climate Efforts But Stays Vague on Agenda

The Hill -- President Obama on Wednesday vowed new efforts to tackle global warming during his second term but offered no concrete agenda to expand on current administration policies to address what he called a major threat.[...]

Obama touted existing administration policies he said are helping to curb emissions. They include major increases in vehicle mileage standards that have already been finalized for model years through 2025, and administration aid for green power projects.

But he said that plans for second-term policies remain a work in progress. “We have not done as much as we need to,” Obama said.[...]

“What I am going to be doing over the next several weeks, the next several months, is ... having a wide-ranging conversation with scientists, engineers and elected officials to find out what more can we do to making short-term progress in reducing carbon and then working through an education process that I think is necessary, a discussion, a conversation across the country about what realistically can we do long-term to make sure that this is not something we are passing on to future generations that is going to be very expensive and very painful to deal with,” Obama said.[...]

“I am a firm believer that climate change is real, that it is impacted by human behavior, and carbon emissions, and as a consequence, I think we’ve got an obligation to future generations to do something about it,” Obama said.

Entire column...

Blog author's comments - The Earth was here long before us, it will be here long after we are gone. The temperature has always changed and will continue to change. To think that humans would be able to take any deliberate actions that would control something as massive and complex as climate is extremely arrogant.

President Obama is obviously a global warming believer. He has thrown so much money down the drain with loans to green energy companies and many have already gone bankrupt. The Chevy 'Volt' is another Obama boondoggle.

Of course I am interested in new sources of energy but most of it will be for future use. At present what drives our country and economy is oil and natural gas. But, green energy is what Obama apparently wants to concentrate on and invest in.

The Wall Street Journal reported the Antarctic sees record growth in sea ice. (see video)

The Daily Mail says that Global Warming stopped 16 years ago.

GOP Invites Rep. West to Run in Georgia

Politico -- Florida GOP Rep. Allen West, who is stubbornly refusing to concede to his Democratic challenger, has something to look forward to if he gives up: an invitation to run for office in Georgia.

“I would be glad to have [West] come back to Georgia and at some point run here,” Georgia GOP chairwoman Sue Everhart told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “I would certainly try to help him because he has done his job. The way he ran his race didn’t in any way interfere with the job he did. He ran as a Republican, a conservative Republican.”

The oft-controversial West is refusing to concede to Democrat Patrick Murphy, even as Murphy attends Congressional orientation events on Tuesday. West is threatening to tie up the election results for months with legal challenges. Murphy leads West by about 2,000 votes out of more than 300,000 cast.

Everhart called West, who was born and raised in Atlanta, “one of the finest congressmen this country’s ever had.”
Blog author's comments - It really is too bad that more members of Congress are not like Allen West. I believe there was voter fraud by the Democrats to defeat him. The Obama administration and Democratic Party wanted to be rid of West.

He was a thorn in their side, spoke for the conservatives and told the truth about Obama and what he and his party are doing to the country. It would be a real loss to the Republican Party if Allen West is not in politics in some capacity. Of course he has not yet conceded the election in Florida.

Romney Got Zero Votes in 59 Philadelphia Voting Divisions

News Busters -- How can this possibly be?

According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, Mitt Romney on Tuesday received ZERO votes in 59 Philadelphia voting divisions! ZERO!

It's one thing for a Democratic presidential candidate to dominate a Democratic city like Philadelphia, but check out this head-spinning figure: In 59 voting divisions in the city, Mitt Romney received not one vote. Zero. Zilch. [...]

Most big cities are politically homogeneous, with 75 percent to 80 percent of voters identifying as Democrats.

As you might imagine, this is impossible.

But don't try to tell liberal media members that voter fraud is real.
Blog author's comments - I'm sure that the fraud was widespread, and that Philadelphia was just one of the more obvious places. No matter how liberal Philadelphia is, someone is going to vote for a Republican out of that many polling stations even if it was by mistake.

Romney also received zero votes in nine Cleveland, Ohio precincts. Was there ever any real belief that Obama's people would conduct an honest election?

Also, Red State reported -- A review of voter registration data for ten counties in Colorado details a pattern of voter bloat inflating registration rolls to numbers larger than the total voting age population. Using publicly available voter data and comparing it to U.S. Census records, reveals the ten counties having a total registration ranging between 104 to 140 percent of the respective populations.

Is This Why Barack Obama Was Reelected President?

Apparently the majority of people in the United States voted for Barack Obama for president because they thought he did such a good job during his first term in office.

They must believe that Socialized medicine, Obamacare, is good for the country even though it will cost more and put the government in control of our health care while removing the best health care system in the world.

That Obama taking no action against the planned attack by terrorists on the Benghazi consulate and the murder of four Americans was nothing for those voters to be concerned about. The truth and facts about this were hidden for days, while the Obama administration told us that the attack in Libya was not a planned attack but a protest because of a movie on 'You Tube' made by an American citizen.

The same can be said about the Obama administration's scheme 'Fast and Furious' where guns were allowed to 'walk' into Mexico to the drug cartels and many lives were lost because of this. The documents concerning this scheme are not available because the president has locked them away.

Obama tells us that Al-Qaeda has been defeated and I guess many believe him. Also, they must think his 'Arab Spring' was a foreign policy success which involved the removal of the dictators in Libya and Egypt. But now Egypt is controlled by the Muslim Brotherhood and the terrorist attack on the consulate took place in Benghazi Libya.

That trillion dollar deficits are okay as is 46 million people on food stamps. That 8 percent or higher unemployment will now be the normal. And, birth control and abortions should be free.

Many voters believe that those who are considered wealthy by the government should have to pay more taxes to help those who refuse to get an education and a job, but continue to receive their government checks funded by the taxpayers for doing nothing.

A large number of his voters also feel it is racist to question the policies and agenda of Barack Obama because he is a black man.

Many of these voters, I assume, also believe whatever they see and hear from the mainstream media because they are 'professional journalists' and would never attempt to cover up the true facts which could make Obama appear inept at his job.

That the terrible economy is not the fault of the Obama administration but only because George W. Bush left them with such a 'mess', even though the country is in much worse shape now than when Bush left office.

Those who voted for Barack Obama must also believe that if he eventually succeeds in making the illegals in our country citizens, which will allow them to vote, is okay even though many more people will be cared for by the government and these new citizens will vote for the candidates of the Democratic Party.

That Obama will also be able to appoint at least two more Supreme Court Justices which will give them a liberal majority who will not judge or rule their cases according to the Constitution because they do not believe in it and would like to change it.

I could go on but is this why Barack Obama was reelected president? Apparently the people who voted to give him another term in office either agree with all of the above and want this to continue or perhaps were not aware of what he has done or did not fully understand it. But, they have given him much more time to do even more harm to the country. Because Barack Obama will be the president for another four years America may now be changed forever.

Massachusetts Mayor Bans The Word 'Illegal' For Illegal Immigrants

CNS News -- The mayor of Somerville, Mass., has banned the use of the term “illegals” when referring to illegal aliens.

Mayor and Alderman Joe Curtatone announced the new policy at a local board meeting last week, according to the Somerville Journal.

The decision was made after a “team of youths” urged the city to stop using the “hurtful” term. “I hadn’t given it a thought until they brought to my attention how hurtful that term is,” Board President Tom Taylor said. “Some of their testimony is pretty heart wrenching.”

One testimony came from Elis Melara, a 14-year-old whose cousin was deported by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) last year. “The way he said those words made me angry,” she said, referencing the word illegal.

“The officer made him seem like a criminal. He was talking about my cousin like he didn’t matter. He matters to me,” Melara said. “The word ‘illegal’ is a wrong way to describe a human being. A better word is ‘undocumented.’ I am thankful that I am an American and can do something about it.”

Curtatone, who is serving his fifth term as mayor since being elected in 2003, said his community has “always been a city of hope for immigrants around the world.”

“We made it clear here that whatever your status is, wherever you’re from, we are your mayor, we’re your aldermen, this is your city and we’re here to service you,” he said. “Anyone who wants to be a part of this city is welcome here.”

Somerville, which is just north of Cambridge, has a population of 76,519 people. According to the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR). Massachusetts has an estimated illegal immigrant population of 190,000 as of 2010.
Blog author's comments - "The mayor of Somerville, Mass., has banned the use of the term “illegals”." So, what is their penalty for someone who uses this term? This is simply more liberal 'political correctness'. Breaking our laws by being in the United States illegally is a crime and the person an "illegal".

Barack Obama and his administration welcome the illegals. I believe that one of Obama's priorities if he should win a second term is to find a way to grant all illegals amnesty and make them U.S. citizens. Most of them would then vote for the candidates of the Democratic Party.
