thank you Sarah.
We rate his claim Pants on Fire.

Our ruling

According to Obama, "What we said was you can keep (your plan) if it hasn’t changed since the law passed."

But we found at least 37 times since Obama’s inauguration where he or a top administration official made a variation of the pledge that if you like your plan, you can keep it, and we never found an instance in which he offered the caveat that it only applies to plans that hadn’t changed after the law’s passage.

Crazy Steve Stockman Posts Incoherent Manifesto Slamming ‘Liberal John Cornyn’

There’s really not much of a chance that Rep. Steve Stockman (R-TX), the internet troll who wastes his taxpayer-funded congressional salary by spending all day tweeting far-right zingers, will ever defeat Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) in the forthcoming Texas senate primary.

But dammit Stockman won’t be bested without a flailing, incoherent fight. Even though he only has a (don’t laugh)$32,000 war chest compared with Cornyn’s $7 million, Stockman is fortified with Crazy Strength — the ability to, no matter what happens or who objects, shamelessly blurt unhinged fits of extremist crapola that’d make Louie Gohmert go,“That’s f*cking nuts!” And for the next three months, we’ll all be treated to a relentless shock-and-awe campaign of the most insane paleo-tea-party TV ads, web videos and, of course, Twitter outbursts unlike anything we’ve observed from the margins of the American political debate.

And I honestly think I’m understating it.

We begin with the new Stockman for Senate website on which the candidate posted what can only be described as an anti-Cornyn fundraising manifesto — practically a laundry list of incoherent demands, with each sentence as its own standalone thought, not unlike his wacky Twitter feed. In it, Stockman uses the phrase “liberal John Cornyn” 21 times, not including an additional four appearances of the phrase in Stockman’s Twitter side-bar widget.

“Liberal John Cornyn betrayed Ted Cruz by abandoning Republicans during the Obamacare filibuster.”

“If liberal John Cornyn loves being a senator he can move to Massachusetts.”

“They do not want compromising leftists who undergo election-year conversions, then back again – and liberal John Cornyn is the worst offender.”

Yes, John Cornyn, with his 100 percent rating from the Christian Coalition and “A” rating from the NRA, is a leftist. A leftist.

Fact: according to the National Journal, in 2012 Cornyn was the second least liberal member of the U.S. Senate. In other words, the only senator who’s more conservative than Cornyn was Sen. James Risch (R-ID). In his screed about “liberal John Cornyn,” Stockman references all of the bills he’s co-sponsored with Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY). But, whoops!, Rand Paul is ranked sixth on the list of most conservative senators. Cornyn is second. For what it’s worth, Sen. James Inhofe (R-OK), who thinks the climate crisis is a hoax, is ranked 14th!

According to Open Congress, in 2013 Cornyn voted with the GOP caucus 89 percent of the time, while Stockman voted with his party 91 percent of the time. There’s a two percent difference between the two candidates. So in terms of purity, Stockman is only two percentage points more loyal to his party than Cornyn.

But silly us, expecting Steve Stockman to suddenly shed his reputation as an escaped mental patient and to engage in fair and honest politics. Remember — Crazy Strength. The second most conservative senator is a liberal. Because Crazy Strength. That and the fact that Cornyn acted like a grown-up and helped to finally put an end to the grabassery that was Sen. Ted Cruz’s (R-TX) filibuster.

And that’s truly the line of demarcation in the Texas primary. A (sometimes) grown-up versus a smirking weirdo who wrote in his manifesto,“Every Republican who works to fund Obamacare kills freedom twice as quickly as when a Democrat does it.” I have no idea what that means.

Team Bush Paid Millions to Nathan Sproul—and Tried to Hide It

Given Sproul's history of serious electoral mischief, affecting countless Democratic voters in the last election, it is important that we ask some sober questions: Where did all that money come from? Why did the RNC suppress their real expenditures? And what exactly did Sproul do for all that pay? If we're going to get some reasonable answers, the FEC must undertake a very thorough audit of the books.

Are you as stupid as your posts?
As Saul Alinsky commands, truth is relative.
As was proved when the Democrats indoctrinated the entire country with defeatism during the Cold War, a principle element of the success of their coup requires the American people actually think they are already defeated before they can be defeated. Accordingly, all these dupes are indoctrinates with the order to speak as if their opposition has already been defeated.
Such ignorance will be the cause of these ignorant Democrats stumbling into a civil war. Naturally, they will immediately promote the ludicrous notion that it is a "race war".
We may very well need another war against the enemies of the Constitution to bring our government back to the government described into the Constitution. It all depends on the number of people the Democrats can dumb down and successfully indoctrinate with the obvious lies we routinely read here. No doubt the Democrats are going to make their play before they can be forced out of the seat of power they now hold. Never in history has either an Islamist or Marxist communist voluntarily given up any positioin of power they were able to achieve. We won't be the first case in history of this happening. The will of the people mean nothing to them.

Hard-right groups wary of Steve Stockman bid

The insurgent conservative groups that have thwarted the GOP establishment in a string of bloody primaries since 2010 appear to be drawing a line for themselves in Texas.

There, bomb-throwing Rep. Steve Stockman filed papers at the last minute Monday to challenge John Cornyn, the No. 2 Republican in the U.S. Senate. On the surface, the race looks like a classic duel between a powerful Washington insider and a scrappy tea party outsider — in a sense, it’s an almost cartoonishly exaggerated version of the dynamic that has divided the GOP for years now.

But already, some of the country’s most prominent conservative organizations have signaled that Stockman will likely have to go it alone against Cornyn. With less than three months until primary day and only $32,000 in Stockman’s campaign account (Cornyn has nearly $7 million on hand), several top conservative strategists privately suggested the race was a fool’s errand – or, more kindly, a quixotic effort that Stockman is welcome to pursue on his own.

It would be harder to find a candidate who more fully embodies the official GOP than Cornyn, a former judge and state attorney general who spent two election cycles tangling with activists as chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee. Stockman, meanwhile, could pass for a right-wing congressman on an Aaron Sorkin show: He is an unabashed provocateur who raffled off a Bushmaster assault rifle during this year’s gun control debate and once said that the great thing about planet Earth is that “if you poke holes in it oil and gas come out.”

<indoctrinated party line lie>

President Obama had a mid-level U.S. official meet with a Chinese officer in 2011 to find out if the Chinese were open to a land and resource swap for debt forgiveness. The upshot of this is that the Chinese are now engaging in experimental “farming” and “scientific” studies in several locations in the U.S. in various states. The personnel involved are all Chinese military, and the plan is to use these as the base for the expansion of “land settlements” in payment of the U.S. debt to China.
Also in 2011, the Bank of China sent a team out into the U.S. to do land analysis and valuations based on resources that have been identified on federally held lands. The group was tasked to visit various preselected sites, including some on the Gulf of Mexico, and arrive at resource-based values between $2 trillion and $5 trillion, enough to satisfy America’s debt to China. According to this scenario, the issuing of new drilling licenses in the U.S. have been stopped on federally held land until the Chinese can be in position to take over new oil production.
Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke urged U.S. lawmakers to lift the country’s borrowing limit, citing scant weeks until a potentially disastrous debt default. The United Nations and the World Bank have been given signals that they will be called upon to broker the deal with America defaulting on debt that it cannot satisfy. This is not to be a fire sale, but is to appear as the great economic rescue plan for the U.S. Thus, it will be eagerly accepted by media-addled Americans and Obama supporters.
