GOP: Obama Genius for bringing in Biden as VP

800px-Joe_Biden_-_World_Economic_Forum_Annual_Meeting_Davos_2005_Portrait

Republicans are pointing at scandal after scandal and many unconstitutional actions on the part of President Obama as reasons he could be impeached. But, they won’t, and some have come out and said that Vice President Biden is the insurance policy keeping Obama in the White House that keeps them at bay.

800px-Joe_Biden_-_World_Economic_Forum_Annual_Meeting_Davos_2005_PortraitIn an interview with Fox News, Rep. Tray Gowdy (R-SC) asked ‘Have you met Joe Biden?’ when asked why the Republicans haven’t offered articles of impeachment against the President.

It would appear that any candidate for President that intends to work outside the limits of the Constitution should first find an inept, but electable, court jester.. ahem.. Vice President. Then, make sure he does things like tell the public to shoot double-barreled shotguns through doors, say that Conservatives behave like terrorists, and so much more.

For the first time, America may have its answer to the obvious question:

Q: why hasn’t Obama been impeached?

A: “Have you met Joe Biden?”

President Irritated and Aggressive after humbling loss to opponents

969eobama-sad-frown-16

President Obama is unhappy with the results of Tuesday’s election and according to news reports has become “irritated” and “aggressive” much like a hormonal teenager.

November 4th was a day that should live in humility for the President after having his agenda, politics, ideology and strategy all rebuffed by the people of the United States.

This election was not about some failure to interpret data, numbers, or robo-calling messaging – it was a basic referendum on the processes, actions, inactions and cowardice on the part of the President.

Now, Obama is threatening to capitalize the ‘B’ in bully where his agenda is concerned.

What should America expect after rejecting the President’s agenda? More of the President’s agenda unless the newly elected Congressional majority (once placed into power in January) uses the power of the purse to reject his coming executive orders on immigration reform, greenhouse gasses, firearms restrictions and more.

The question America should have for the new GOP majority – do you have the nuts to deal with an even more aggressive President Obama?

Obamacare forces many to avoid preventative healthcare

President Obama promised huge reductions in premiums and greater access to care. Unfortunately, forcing insurers to create plans with easy payments, unaffordable deductibles terrible networks has had dire consequences.

Fox News reports that the White House pushed for low premiums regardless of the fact that they come with high deductibles, reduced benefits and very few doctors in-network because “most people buy only based on premiums.” That pushes Obamacare recipients into community health organizations and often making choices with expensive or dangerous consequences.

When those on the high-deductible “affordable” plans are told that additional treatment, tests or drugs may be needed to identify or prevent their condition from worsening, they often balk at the preventative measures because those costs would not be paid until they hit the huge deductible that their small premium dictates. Now, the politics of Obamacare have created a medical train-wreck out of someone who previously would have just needed preventative medical attention.

To avoid becoming a medical nightmare, many of these Obamacare enrollees are using community health centers, which offer low cost or free care, to deal with their health issues. So, what did these enrollees get for taking the President’s advice and getting enrolled? They get to go outside the standard healthcare system while still paying into it.

The Demotion of Harry Reid

harry-reid-640

With but a day left until the Senate likely knows its next makeup, Harry Reid might just be readying himself for a drastic change in job requirements – and America waits with baited breath.

Under Leader Reid’s expert guidance, the Senate has taken on virtually no controversial legislation since Obamacare. Reid has done everything in his power to prevent Democrats from having to vote on contentious issues and has therefore left them looking like patsies for the President – voting with the President’s wishes up to 99% of the time.

Reid has been worrying about campaigning instead of governing for one very good, self-important reason – if he loses too many Senate seats, he loses his leadership position. So instead of working to do the will of the people, Harry has been working to do no harm to Democrat Senators. In the end, that might just cost them – and him – their positions.

Failing to pass a budget compromise since 2009 and doing little else but cower to the President’s demands, the Senate has been the obstacle that America resents. The House has pushed bill after bill to the Senate with Reid preventing anything requiring compromise to hit the Senate floor. It has all been Obama’s way or the highway.

XL pipeline, petroleum exports .. or even .. a BUDGET would have been great. Instead, the Senate has been largely allowed to only vote on approving (or else) the President’s nominees for lower court judge seats or Whitehouse administration positions.

Getting hyper-partisan Harry Reid out of the Senate offers America some hope that Congress will get some bills on to the President’s desk. Perhaps even some that might finally reverse the shrinking percentage of Americans in the workforce. Shrinking paychecks, higher grocery bills and huge jumps in Obamacare health insurance costs will not be missed either.

Intelligent Americans Reject Democrat “War on Women” and decide to vote smart

Political polling shows that the American voting public grows increasingly weary of Democrats saying that Republicans oppose mammograms and PAP smears.

Liberal groups funded by commercial abortion operations like Planned Parenthood have been producing dramatic advertisements showing women complaining about Republican candidates who are voting against mammograms and PAP smears – key tools in the detection of women’s health issues. Unfortunately for Democrats, women are smart enough to realize that politicians aren’t banning their health screening or even reducing government funding for mammograms. They’ve just decided that taxpayer money can’t be used to kill babies. If women want to kill their unborn babies, they’ll just have to pay for it themselves. Just wait until those women see what Obamacare has done to their healthcare costs…

Voters are looking at their grocery bills, utility bills and Obamacare bills. Oddly, despite the Democrats assurances, all of those bills have gone up while their pay has not – and one party has ruled the majority of our government for 6+ years.

Why did their salaries stagnate? Probably due to increased competition from a more fluid immigration policy. As more (foreign)  people compete for the same jobs, their is nothing left to cause increased pay pressure.

Democrat policies are the sole cause of stagnant pay, increasing healthcare costs and less-available jobs. Now, they pay the price the rest of us have been bearing under their failed leadership – they may just be out of a job.

NRA Website with Gun-friendly Ratings for 2014 Candidates

North Carolina Kay Hagan Thom Tillis gun rights stances

As next Tuesday’s mid-term election grows near, many are unsure of their candidate’s position on their right to own firearms for hobbies, hunting and defense.

The NRA has a website that allows voters to see how their local candidates have and likely will vote on gun rights, hunter’s rights and basic American rights issues.

Voters wishing to understand what their candidates stances on gun rights are can go HERE.

For example, here are North Carolina candidates for U.S. Senator Kay Hagan and Thom Tillis’ gun rights ratings.

Kay Hagan is anti-gun

DHS: Suspect who killed California Deputies deported twice

Americans across the nation are feeling less secure as ICE (a division of DHS) reported that the man who is suspected of killing two California police officers had been deported TWICE by ICE.

The fingerprints of the alleged cop-killer match those of Luis Enrique Monroy-Bracamonte who was originally deported in 1997 for drug possession and again in 2001 for an offense that DHS will not disclose (trust-insipiring, huh?)

Monroy-Bracamonte  is charged with two counts each of murder, attempted murder and carjacking. His wife has now been arrested on charges of carjacking and attempted murder.

Citizens willing to trade freedom for security, until it is their own

Ebola-Care A.F. Branco Politcal Cartoon

Reading a Dallas News story on the quarantine of a nurse returning from an Ebola infected area made it clear that some Americans are more than willing to trade freedom for security until it is THEIR freedom being sacrificed for the greater good.

Kaci Hickox, a nurse who decided to go to Africa to help Ebola victims, returned. She honestly answered the entry questions and was told that she might have to answer “a few questions.”

Ms. Hickox temperature was checked in accordance with Homeland Security guidelines and found to be febrile. She was told that she would be quarantined and where.

She spent a few hours in the airport holding area and wrote that she wondered what she “had done wrong.”

No one believes that Nurse Hickox did anything wrong. She decided to help a less fortunate populace with her considerable skills – nothing wrong with that.

The confusion comes from the fact that her decision to selflessly risk her health and life did not end when she left Africa. She CHOSE to take that risk and it came with repercussions. After having two or more health workers out in the open in the U.S. after having been infected.. she should be only so happy to be quarantined. She does not get to risk the infection of the entire nation simply because she believes she is healthy.

The idea that quarantine of those coming from overseas is unwarranted is new. Animals, fruit and vegetables are inspected and held. If only humans underwent the same scrutiny, perhaps some young, innocent American children would still be alive instead of victims of a disease this nation hasn’t seen for 50 years prior to Obama’s opening of the border.

Many would gladly subject themselves to body scanners, luggage searches or other inconveniences in the hope that it makes them safer – although it does not.

Here, someone returning from an area overrun with a lethal virus is criticizing officials for keeping her out of the public until they can make sure she is not contagious.

This isn’t about who is right or wrong. This is about understanding principle over ideology. Either you believe that freedom is an easy sacrifice in return for public safety or you realize that the government can easily use public safety concerns to strip away your freedom. You cannot have it both ways. Choose carefully – the feds will not.

First Year Teacher Hailed as Hero in Marysville School Shooting

Capture

A Newly hired Social Studies teacher is being hailed a hero in the Marysville, WA school shooting.

Megan Silberberger, a first year Social Studies teacher, reportedly confronted the shooter while he was reloading. During that confrontation the shooter was killed.

Police are currently calling the ending shot a self-inflicted gunshot wound, but it is not yet clear whether the shooter intentionally shot himself or was shot during a struggle with the teacher.

The attacker, Jaylen Fryberg, killed one female student and critically wounded four others before he was stopped.

Hillary: Businesses do NOT create jobs [VIDEO]

Hillary Clinton anti-business

Hillary Clinton appeared at a Boston, MA rally for gubernatorial candidate Martha Coakley and told the accepting crowd that the idea that businesses create jobs is false.

“Don’t let anybody tell you it’s corporations and businesses create jobs,” Clinton remarked.

Perhaps that fall in the hotel room has done more damage than anyone thought. After all, without new and growing businesses, where would the jobs come from – outer space?

When people snap – the weapon can be anything

Hatchet_firefighter

In effort to make the public believe that the government can prevent violence or injury, the delusional left has gone after guns. As recent events prove, their misguided story line is a lie – the guns are not the problem and the government cannot protect citizens from crazy people.

The news agencies constantly re-surface Columbine, Sandy Hook, the Navy Yard, etc. They point out the evil guns and the damage done, but what they rarely report or re-emphasize is the fact that those committing the atrocities were ALL, every single one of them, on anti-depressants and/or other anti-psychotics.

As further research is done, it becomes more obvious – the weapon isn’t the problem and the government cannot prevent these tragedies.

Less than a week ago, Roksana Sikorski stabbed her brother and sister with a knife. She had been diagnosed with PTSD and ADD and put on medication. A gun was not the issue.

Today in Queens, NY, two NYPD Police Officers were attacked by a man wielding a hatchet. Two officers were both seriously wounded, but were thankfully saved when a third officer opened fire and shot the attacker. A good guy with a gun saved the day.

While NYPD has the luxury of a third person ready to come to their aid, the rest of America knows that the average citizen would just cower while someone gets hatcheted, knifed or beaten to death.

It is up to us to defend ourselves and each other.
