Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ...

Wow!

We still have an economy in the tank, countries around the world are thumbing their noses at Lord Obama (they discovered he's a poser), Benghazi, IRS, NSA wiretapping-- now what is the Annointed One charging after?

GLOBAL WARMING! Yep, heard this morning he wants to start taxing the hell out of anything that emits carbon dioxide.

Two weeks ago we in Idaho were told that our electric rates are going up 12% because, among other things, the utilities bought expensive windmills that were subsidized by the federal gubbermint. Now that the feds are unable to continue subsidizing them, we're stuck with these windmills, which will never make electricity as economically as carbon fuels.

Oh yeah, we'll just absorb another Socialist/Democrat brain fart. Just like Obamacare, which we get to start paying for BIG TIME next year.

I wish there was a way to isolate the Socialist/Democrats so that THEY pay for their idiotic ideas. If they want socialized medicine, FINE! If they want to pay triple the amount for their electricity because of some myth about global warming, FINE! Just let the rest of us who haven't taken leave of our brains opt out.

The Texas anti-abortion bill, which threatened to close nearly all of the abortion clinics in the state and prompted an 11-hour filibuster by state Sen. Wendy Davis (D), is dead, The Austin American-Statesman reported.
Lawmakers had to vote on Senate Bill 5 before the special session's end at 12 a.m. local time. However, more than 400 protesters halted the proceedings 15 minutes before the roll call could be completed with what they called "a people's filibuster," The Associated Press reported.
The crowd of demonstrators in the capitol cried "Shame! Shame!" when Davis' filibuster was halted by Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst, who ruled that her discussion of mandatory ultrasound testing was off-topic. Then the protesters roared after state Sen. Leticia Van De Putte asked, "At what point must a female senator raise her hand or her voice to be recognized over her male colleagues?”
Their cries continued to echo inside the chamber -- and over a livestream watched by thousands around the world -- until after the midnight deadline passed.
Although some Republican lawmakers later claimed the bill had passed in time, Democrats denied that the vote was completed before the clock ran out on the session.
A time stamp showing the vote completed after midnight was the deciding factor.“This will not become law,” Sen. John Whitmire (D), told The Austin American-Statesman.

A violent street mob denies the will of the people.

If raising medical standards for abortion clinics results in their closing, so be it.

By that logic, you should support the Court upholding Prop 8.
by that logic....

This morning the Supreme Court issued a decision on the Voting Rights Act that struck down Section 4 which provided for constitutional reviews of voting practices in jurisdictions where there has been a history of discrimination. As might be expected, opinions began flying around as soon as the news hit the wires. Here are some of the views expressed by Republicans and other conservative figures:

Mitt Romney: Today, unelected judges cast aside the will of the people.
Rep. Roy Blunt (R-MO): Today, the decision of unelected judges to overturn the will of the people … demonstrates the lengths that unelected judges will go to substitute their own worldview for the wisdom of the American people.
Sen. Jeff Sessions: This ‘Washington-knows-best’ mentality is evident in all branches of government, but is especially troublesome in the judiciary, where unelected judges have twisted the words of our Constitution to advance their own political, economic, and social agendas.
Rep. Tom Feeney (R-FL): I’m appalled that unelected judges have irresponsibly decided to legislate from the bench and overturn the will of the people.
George W. Bush: This concept of a “living Constitution” gives unelected judges wide latitude in creating new laws and policies without accountability to the people.
Thomas Sowell: Unelected judges can cut the voters out of the loop and decree liberal dogma as the law of the land.
Laura Ingraham: We don’t want to be micromanaged by some unelected judge or some unelected bureaucrat on the international or national level.
Gov. Rick Perry:[The American people are] fed up with unelected judges.
Pat Robertson: We are under the tyranny of a nonelected oligarchy. Just think, five unelected men and women who serve for life can change the moral fabric of our nation and take away the protections which our elected legislators have wisely put in place.
Robert Bork: We are increasingly governed not by law or elected representatives but by an unelected, unrepresentative, unaccountable committee of lawyers applying no will but their own.
Sen. Orrin Hatch: A small minority and their judicial activist allies are seeking to usurp the will of the people … Ultimately, the American people, not unelected judges, should decide policy on critical social issues such as this one.
Glenn Beck: Even if you agree that the role of government is to take wealth from one to another, should it be the role of unelected judges and justices that do this?
Justice Antonin Scalia: Value-laden decisions such as that should be made by an entire society … not by nine unelected judges.

If you haven’t already figured it out, these are not responses to today’s decision on the Voting Rights Act. These opinions were expressed following other legal cases where the rulings were contrary to the wishes of these conservative hypocrites. If they had any intellectual integrity, they would be joining liberals who are disappointed with today’s ruling.

IRSgate joins Solyndragate and Benghazigate in Fake Scandal Heaven

In addition to being a cosmic turd straight from Satan’s bunghole, Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) is now just a laughing stock on Capitol Hill. If anyone anywhere takes this clown seriously in the future, we will be shocked. How has Issa managed to make himself an even bigger fool, the kind of ass that everyone, even small children, stop to point and laugh at? It all goes back to the IRS, and this non-scandal that Issa bet his entire reputation as Chair of the House Oversight & Government Reform Committee upon.

Salon hits the nail on the head:

Remember the IRS scandal? How the tax agency improperly singled out Tea Party groups for extra scrutiny in a nefarious political vendetta against conservatives because the agency is either inherently liberal or was acting on orders from the Democratic President? Remember how it cost even Mitt Romney the election?

Well, as it turns out, that whole scandal is entirely bogus. False. A fiction. The entire notion that the agency singled out groups with “Tea Party” in their name in simply wrong, we learn today, thanks to new documents revealed by the Associated Press. The documents, and confirmation from officials, show the IRS targeted groups with other keywords in their names, including “Progressive” and “Occupy.”

Hahahahahaha, suck it, Rep. Issa. And suck it all you teabagger crazies complaining about how much butthurt you went through while suffering from your goddam persecution complex. Turns out you are all a bunch of whiny babies who jumped the gun before all the facts were in, and now you look like completely incompetent political hacks who are better off crawling back to whatever cosmic bunghole you came from.

http://wonkette.com/520711/irsgate-joins-soly...

So now we can expect the wingnutosphere to shut up about IRSgate, right? You know, like they have about Benghazi and Bill Ayres and Solyndra and Jeremiah Wright and the birth certificate and…

The Senate Judiciary Committee will hold hearings next month after the court on Tuesday invalidated the Voting Rights Act’s coverage formula, which determines which voting districts must gain pre-approval from the Department of Justice for voting policy and procedure changes.

Obama got Osama Bin Lauden, Benghazi is over and the IRS is going nowhere.
Sooner of later you may have to face the divisions within your own party rather than hoping that a few scandals will surfice.
LOL
the Republican party will end because of the engineered demographics--millions more unskilled, entitlement takers, draining all resources and voting Democrat because they are so dependent.

but i predict that there will be great division in the future democratic party--illegals made legal are basically religious and often Catholic (anti-abortion and not for gay marriage); and they will displace poor blacks in low wage jobs and compete for housing; and once this trickles into the elite, limousine liberal neighborhoods--there will be a great divide. just like in The Hunger Games.

our children will never know the America that once was, because future generations will be living in armed gated communities with their own border control, because the US government failed in providing such for the country.

The Amnesty bill, should be called what it actually is: the American National Suicide Bill.

If you want a preview of life in America, post Amnesty, we already have it.

From CNS News:

The Internal Revenue Service sent 23,994 tax refunds worth a combined $46,378,040 to “unauthorized” alien workers who all used the same address in Atlanta, Ga., in 2011, according to the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA).

That was not the only Atlanta address theoretically used by thousands of “unauthorized” alien workers receiving millions in federal tax refunds in 2011.

In fact, according to a TIGTA audit report published last year, four of the top ten addresses to which the IRS sent thousands of tax refunds to “unauthorized” aliens were in Atlanta.

The IRS sent 11,284 refunds worth a combined $2,164,976 to unauthorized alien workers at a second Atlanta address; 3,608 worth $2,691,448 to a third; and 2,386 worth $1,232,943 to a fourth.
Other locations on the IG’s Top Ten list for singular addresses that were theoretically used simultaneously by thousands of unauthorized alien workers, included an address in Oxnard, Calif, where the IRS sent 2,507 refunds worth $10,395,874; an address in Raleigh, North Carolina, where the IRS sent 2,408 refunds worth $7,284,212; an address in Phoenix, Ariz., where the IRS sent 2,047 refunds worth $5,558,608; an address in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., where the IRS sent 1,972 refunds worth $2,256,302; an address in San Jose, Calif., where the IRS sent 1,942 refunds worth $5,091,027; and an address in Arvin, Calif., where the IRS sent 1,846 refunds worth $3,298,877.

ANYONE NOTICE WHAT IS MISSING IN THIS STORY?
There is NOT A WORD ABOUT AN ARREST OR PROSECUTION of anyone involved in this.

The cold hard truth is THE OBAMA REGIME is not interested in enforcing American laws against those who are here illegally now and if Amnesty passes they still won’t be.

The Democrats love to trot out stories of people who were brought here as children or families divided, but what they don’t want to talk about is the MASSIVE CRIME WAVE that comes with illegal immigration.

While we are paying out millions to illegal aliens who are defrauding the system, WHAT IS OBAMA'S IRS WORRIED ABOUT?

They want to make sure that Tea Party groups are harassed and do not get non-profit status.

If the government is not doing anything now to protect us, what makes anyone think anything will be different after Amnesty passes?
