This Thanksgiving Day powerful TV ads will air across the state of Texas “thanking” Senator Ted Cruz for leading the fight against Barack Obama’s failed ObamaCare healthcare scheme. The ads will run during the highly-rated NFL Thanksgiving Day football games and during the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade on one-dozen (12) TV stations across Texas.

From what I recall of my childhood, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s civil rights movement was not universally embraced in the black community. Some blacks were frightened by his actions and angry at the “crazy” colored man for stirring up trouble. “He is making things worse for Negros!”
But MLK became an American icon.
In 1977, world-renowned architect Phillip Johnson was approached by Rev. Robert Schuller with his “crazy” impossible dream. “So, you want to build a glass cathedral in earthquake country without obstructed views to the front, and you have no money?” Rev. Schuller replied, “Yes.” The Crystal Cathedral is now the largest glass building in the world. Read more at: americanthinker.com.
On November 24, 2013, western powers, lead by President Barack Obama and his Secretary of State, John Kerry, agreed to a deal with the Islamic Republic of Iran — the leading state sponsor of terrorism in the world today — that betrays our allies in the State of Israel and all but guarantees a nuclear-armed Iran.
The deal lifts billions of dollars of crippling sanctions against Iran, undermines countless UN resolutions levied against it, and tacitly acknowledges its self-declared right to pursue a nuclear program. In exchange for this, the west gets nothing, or perhaps worse than nothing — an unenforceable bureaucratic and regulatory nightmare that will allow Iran to cat-and-mouse their way to regional supremacy and a nuclear bomb.
As Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu observed:
“As we learn more and more details about the agreement that was achieved last night in Geneva, it becomes increasingly clear how bad and dangerous this agreement is to the world, the region, and Israel.”
In September 1938, a war-weary west made a similar concession to Adolf Hitler, granting him, in violation of treaty, the right to annex the Sudetenland. What was deemed by liberals then to be “peace in our time” was, in actuality, the point of no return for stopping the bloodiest war in human history and the near annihilation of the Jewish people.

Energy & Commerce Committee memorandum announcing the hearing.
WASHINGTON — Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., called Sen. Majority Leader Harry Reid a “bully” who is breaking the rules of the Senate because he needs to do whatever he can to change the subject in the media, and protect Obamcare from the daily pounding it is getting.
Paul is referring to the so-called “nuclear option” that Reid and Senate Democrats resorted to Friday which eliminated filibusters for most presidential nominations. Read more at: wnd.com.

Well, Obama didn’t explicitly say that: “If you like your Medicare Advantage doctor, you can keep your Medicare Advantage doctor,” now did he?
The Wall Street Journal reports that private insurance provider United Health is dropping thousands of doctors from its Medicare Advantage networks. Medicare Advantage is very popular with senior citizens, but United Health says that “government cuts” will “leave many elderly patients unsure whether they need to switch plans to continue seeing their doctors.”
The insurer said in October that underfunding of Medicare Advantage plans for the elderly could not be fully offset by the company’s other healthcare business. The company also reported spending more healthcare premiums on medical claims in the third quarter, due mainly to government cuts to payments for Medicare Advantage services.
The Journal report said that doctors in at least 10 states were notified of being laid off the plans, some citing “significant changes and pressures in the healthcare environment.” According to the notices, the terminations can be appealed within 30 days.

No one can deny that President Obama’s press conference on ObamaCare today was nothing short of a debacle. In case you missed it, catch up quick.
By Erick Erickson
Republicans are walking into a trap and they don’t even realize it.
They are about to consider, in the House of Representatives, legislation by Congressman Upton that would allow people to keep their insurance plans.
There’s a problem though. It is widely acknowledged that Congressman Upton’s legislation is more messaging than substance. His legislation does not have anything in it that can force insurance companies, in the topsy-turvy world of Obamacare, to keep insurance plans going. Continue reading at: redstate.com.

“You lie because your premiums will be higher.” “Never report it, I always lie on my applications.” “Don’t tell them that.” These are just a few of the comments made by ObamaCare navigators caught on video.
James O’Keefe, the videographer who helped bring down ACORN and got NPR’s president fired, sent his undercover investigators to meet with ObamaCare navigators, who, in the words of the Department of Health and Human Services, “will serve as an in-person resource for Americans who want additional assistance in shopping for and enrolling in plans” on the Obamacare exchanges.

‘Destroying medicine’: David Limbaugh shares story of Obamacare’s crushing effect on doctors:
Governor Christie has been getting a lot of attention since his recent re-election last week. Both the Republican establishment and Democratic pundits as well as the main stream media have all but crowned him as the 2016 GOP presidential nominee. Never mind his position on illegal immigration and the Second Amendment, or his big Obama hug (anyone remember Charlie Crist?). But in an ongoing poll from Eagle Rising/LastResistance.com, it appears that Conservatives feel differently. Check out the poll below, and scroll down to the bottom to see up to the minute results and cast your vote for the Republican you would LEAST want as President.
