Celebrate Five Years of Obamacare

Obamacare was signed into federal law on March 23rd, 2010.  The edict was written in such a way so that most of its horrible provisions didn’t take effect right away, but rather gradually kicked in over time. This was done to allow the unknowing masses to get used to having Obamacare around and to prevent them from feeling the pain right away. Did someone say 2012 and 2014 elections?

Well, after five years, the time for the pain has come.  So rejoice and celebrate higher deductibles, higher co-pays, higher premiums and and more taxes.  And after you sober up, have another round and celebrate fewer doctors, fewer insurance plans to choose from, fewer working hours and in general, less access to care.  But not to worry, just sit down and fine tune your NCAA basketball bracket sheets and everything will be fine.  Click here to Show your pride!

Megyn Kelly: Did Bergdahl Really Serve with ‘Honor?’

In the aftermath of the U.S. Army charging Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl with desertion, Megyn Kelly faced off with State Department spokesperson Jen Psaki Wednesday night. The Fox News host wanted to know if the Obama Administration still thinks Bergdahl served with “honor and distinction” as National Security Adviser Susan Rice said after his freedom was traded for the release of five Taliban detainees last spring.

Great College Education

Let’s face it, all you had to do was read the title and you knew this was going to be a another ridiculous example of our Higher Academia. While campuses are debating whether the American flag should be flown or ROTC should even have a presence, they are doing a great job protecting those poor young men and women who get offended or mentally damaged by encountering anything they view as offensive.

 

So if you have a few moments to read the following two articles, please do. Like me I am sure you will be disgusted, but once again, it is the American public that allows this to go on.

As a disclaimer, this picture could be a woman or a man-

 From the NY Times-

Safe spaces are an expression of the conviction, increasingly prevalent among college students, that their schools should keep them from being “bombarded” by discomfiting or distressing viewpoints. Think of the safe space as the live-action version of the better-known trigger warning, a notice put on top of a syllabus or an assigned reading to alert students to the presence of potentially disturbing material.

From Reason Magazine-

The Ithaca College Student Government Association passed a bill March 16 to create an online system to report microaggressions, which sponsors of the bill said will create a more conducive environment for victims to speak about microaggressions.

The bill, sponsored by Class of 2018 senator Angela Pradhan, calls for the implementation of a campus-wide online system to report microaggressions to “make Ithaca College a safer, more inclusive and diverse community for all students.”

Pradhan said the online system would fill what she sees as a lack of an adequate system to report microaggressions.

“I know a lot of senators are working on microaggression stuff within their respective schools, but I felt that there was a need for something to happen schoolwide,” Pradhan said. “And if there was a concrete way to document [microaggressions] online, it would provide students a way to kind of state what’s going on.”

The system would allow individuals reporting microaggressions to remain anonymous. However, junior Kyle James, vice president of communications and co-sponsor of the bill, said those reporting a microaggression would likely have to reveal their identity if they wanted to pursue any legal action.

Ted Cruz Announces Presidential Run

March 23rd, 2015: In a speech on the campus of Liberty University in Lynchburg, VA, Sen. Ted Cruz became the first major candidate to announce a presidential bid for 2016. It is fitting that Cruz picked this campus to announce, as he has clearly championed Liberty throughout his lifetime. And it is no accident, in my opinion, that he chose today to announce, as it is the fifth anniversary of the signing of Obamacare into law.

Obama, Media Lied About Netanyahu and the Palestinian State

by Ben Shapiro – March 20, 2015

For the last several days, the entire Western media has run with a false story: the story that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he no longer would, under any circumstances, endorse the possibility of a Palestinian state.

Ha’aretz, a left-wing Israeli newspaper opposing Netanyahu, reported Netanyahu’s supposed comment with this headline: “Netanyahu: If I’m Elected, There Will Be No Palestinian State.” The rest of the media quickly followed. Days later, when Netanyahu said that he had never disavowed his prior support for the possibility of a Palestinian state – support he expressed in a speech at Bar Ilan University in 2009 – the media accused Netanyahu of flip-flopping.

There is only one problem: Netanyahu never said that a Palestinian state was out of the question.

The interview in which Netanyahu expressed the much-misinterpreted remark took place with the conservative Israeli publication NRG. It also took place in Hebrew, a language virtually none of the members of the Western press read or speak; most simply took the Ha’aretz report and ran with it. Netanyahu was asked directly about whether his Bar-Ilan speech was “irrelevant.” Here is what Netanyahu actually said:

NETANYAHU: I think anyone who is going to build a Palestinian state today will be freeing up space to give an attack area to radical Islam against Israel. This is the reality created here in recent years. Anyone who ignores this sticks his head in the sand. The left does this, burying its head in the sand again and again. We are realistic and understand…

NRG: If you are elected head of state, no Palestinian state will come to fruition?

NETANYAHU: Indeed.

NRG: Construction in Jerusalem and the West Bank will renew?

NETANYAHU: We are continuing all the time, but that’s not a question about additional building. There is a real threat that the government of the left will join the international community and do their bidding….

Netanyahu continued by arguing that the left would buy into the “international initiatives to return to the 1967 borders and divide Jerusalem.”

In other words, Netanyahu did not discount the possibility of a Palestinian state forever. He said that anyone who tries to build a Palestinian state “hayom” – “today” – would be giving territory to radical Islam. He even added that this was a reality created in recent years.  Continue reading at breitbart.com.

One Nation Under Allah

Fury after school recites pledge in Arabic


Students at Pine Bush High School in Pine Bush, New York, knew right away there was something not quite right about the Pledge of Allegiance. That’s because the pledge was being recited in Arabic.

“One nation under Allah,” the student body president announced over the intercom system on Wednesday.

Reaction in the upstate New York high school was swift, and so was the backlash, The Times Herald-Record reports. Furious students tried to shout down the recitation in their classrooms. Other students sat down in protest.

School Superintendent Joan Carbone told the newspaper that the Arabic pledge “divided the school in half” – noting that many complaints came from Jewish parents and those who had lost family members fighting the war on terror.

The outrage among students was so significant that the school issued an apology. Read more at foxnews.com.

Five Lessons US Conservatives Should Learn From Netanyahu

by Ben Shapiro17 Mar 2015

On Tuesday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu won re-election according to the latest vote counts, defeating not just his domestic leftist opposition, but the President of the United States in a public stand-off that had the President sending emissaries to Israel to try and oust Netanyahu. The victory represented a stunning turnaround for Netanyahu, whose Likud Party trailed significantly in the polls in the days leading up to the election.

How Netanyahu shifted the narrative in Israel makes for a compelling political case study in principle over prevarication. Netanyahu overcame a highly-publicized domestic scandal involving allegedly ordering some $2,700 worth of ice cream to the official residence, and exceeding his household budget by approximately a million shekel. He overcame inflation against the dollar that jacked up prices of goods in the weeks leading up to the election, and inflated real estate prices over the course of the last six years. He overcame foreign money injected into the campaign.

How? He employed five key tactics — tactics from which American conservatives could learn:

Build Around a Personality. Netanyahu’s speech before Congress was the latest indicator that he was a world leader ready to face down the most powerful people in the world, including Iran and its new friends in the Obama administration. While many Israelis said they didn’t want Netanyahu as prime minister, they preferred him over his rivals in every poll for months before the election by a wide margin. In the late days of the campaign, Netanyahu campaigned openly on the idea that conservatives ought to vote for his party in order to elevate him personally. By positioning himself as a major international presence, Netanyahu placed himself in admirable political position. There is danger to this strategy: it allows the opposition to focus on you personally. But voters vote for people, not for ideas.  Continue reading at breitbart.com.

White House Office to Delete its FOIA Regulations

It doesn’t get any more transparent than this!

WASHINGTON — The White House is removing a federal regulation that subjects its Office of Administration to the Freedom of Information Act, making official a policy under Presidents Bush and Obama to reject requests for records to that office.

The White House said the cleanup of FOIA regulations is consistent with court rulings that hold that the office is not subject to the transparency law. The office handles, among other things, White House record-keeping duties like the archiving of e-mails.

But the timing of the move raised eyebrows among transparency advocates, coming on National Freedom of Information Day and during a national debate over the preservation of Obama administration records. It’s also Sunshine Week, an effort by news organizations and watchdog groups to highlight issues of government transparency.

“The irony of this being Sunshine Week is not lost on me,” said Anne Weismann of the liberal Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, or CREW.

“It is completely out of step with the president’s supposed commitment to transparency,” she said. “That is a critical office, especially if you want to know, for example, how the White House is dealing with e-mail.” [bold type: Mine]

Stockpiling Of Food Banned In Venezuela

Fingerprint Scanners Appear In Stores

This article was written by Chris Carrington and originally published at Ready Nutrition

News reports indicate that Venezuela is starting to install fingerprint scanners in supermarkets as a way of preventing ‘food hoarding’. Venezuela is experiencing widespread shortages of most foodstuffs including the most basic such as bread, flour and grains as well as an acute shortage of medicines.

Unable to buy imported food due to a plummeting currency and falling oil prices resulting in a lack of revenue, Venezuelans are becoming increasingly desperate.

President Maduro has accused Colombian food smugglers of buying up massive amounts of staples to sell back to people at vastly marked up prices.

The scanners that are being installed in stores are to prevent people buying more than their allotted quota as the implementation of rationing begins. Read more at alt-market.com.
