Woman arrested for Nevada voter fraud
CARSON CITY, Nev.(AP)-- Secretary of State Ross Miller says a woman has been arrested on two felony charges for allegedly using a false identity to register to vote and casting ballots in Nevada elections.
Miller late Friday announced the arrest of Ortencia Segura in California.
A complaint filed by the attorney general's office says Segura registered to vote in Washoe County in August 2008 and provided identification with the name of Marisela Reyna. Authorities confirmed she voted in the 2008 and 2010 elections.
Authorities say information from the Justice Department show Segura was arrested in 2012 and deported for filing a false statement on a passport application. They say she also had a false Nevada driver's license, prompting the investigation.
Miller says Segura was arrested Thursday for entering the country illegally.

But all of those stories about illegal Mexicans voting for the Magic Negro are still untrue?

prove it....
most doctors will accept Medicare, but not Medicaid or ObamaKKKare.....
"To prepare the primary care workforce for the influx of new Medicaid-eligible patients established through the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA), this provision increases payment rates for certain primary care services to at least the level of Medicare in 2013 and 2014. The provision, often referred to as “Medicaid Parity,” was included because primary care physicians, including internal medicine subspecialists who provide primary care, will be particularly affected by the Medicaid expansion since millions of new patients will enter
the health care system and many will have complex health care needs. Primary care physicians and subspecialists are not required to participate in Medicaid, and many practices do not accept Medicaid patients because reimbursement rates are relatively low and the administrative barriers are significant. Further, people who are currently eligible for Medicaid but not enrolled will likely enroll in Medicaid coverage to comply with the individual mandate included as part of the ACA, adding more beneficiaries to the program. Many of these
new Medicaid patients will be adults who seek care from internists. These increased payment rates apply to all states; independent of the state’s decision regarding participation in the Medicaid expansion opportunity provided through the ACA.”

"Enhanced payment rates may induce more physicians to participate in Medicaid. According to a survey conducted by United Healthcare, half of primary care physicians would increase their Medicaid case load if Medicaid payment rates were increased to the level of Medicare pay rates."

It's the culture...
In their mad rush to catch up to the Western world, China has trashed its environment and that of the rest of the world. In the West, there is a social cost and a financial cost attached to production of just about anything. Early on, China looked upon their ignoring expensive environmental laws as an edge in competition against the West and, even today, the weak ones they have on the books are for show and nothing more. China will continue trashing the environment until somewhere down the road they feel equal to the West - whenever that may be.

DumbDave's constant apologizing and rationalizing China's bad behavior is laughable.

The blame game is going to get very ugly very soon. The Democrats are desperate and see their power slipping away.
Don't think we've even seen the depths which they will go to keep that from happening.
Between now and November, you will see the Magic Negro and his minions desperately trying to change the national conversation away from his failures and onto some stupid new "issue" like "Gender Gap", "Economic Justice", "Profiling" or even Putin's Brow-Beating the Ukraine.

Democrats are scared. The Magic Negro tells them to change their position from defensive to offensive,i.e; tell the voters you are proud of your stupidity.

The Magic Negro does that himself all the time when he travels to make stupid speeches about shovel-ready jobs in all 58 States. The Fist Cow even bought him a T-Shirt for his birthday that has "I'm Stupid And Proud Of It" emblazoned across the front of it.

Across the back, in small print, it says "It's An Affirmative Action Thing. You Wouldn't Understand"

Bull. We have to fight to prevent oil companies from closing down refineries. From 1985 to 1995, 10 California refineries closed and others have tried and failed. Over all we have twenty refineries. Seems about right for a state our size. Texas has 27.

Community organizing on a grand scale...

and what did the GUBBYMINT give these folks in exchange?

"Kathleen Sebelius, the health and human services secretary,“contacted the chief executive officers of five organizations to solicit support for one outside entity, Enroll America,” which ran a national campaign to help people sign up for insurance, the report said.

Megyn Kelly Refuses to Surrender to Angry Muslims
The truth hurts sometimes, especially when it comes to the truth about Islam and its violent and oppressive history.

When Megyn Kelly did a segment on honor killings and the treatment of women in Muslim countries on The Kelly File, the Muslim group CAIR, or the Council on American-Islamic Relations, immediately came out to denounce the segment and demand a retraction.

Kelly unequivocally refused to retract anything from the segment, saying,“Guess what, you’re not getting it.”

Via Downtrend:

Honor Diaries is a movie that tells the story of nine women’s rights advocates.

Now, when you read the phrase “women’s rights advocates,” you might think it’s the kind of movie that liberals would truly appreciate. Sadly, we haven’t seen any evidence of that just yet.

You see, Honor Diaries is about the way that women are abused in countries dominated by Muslims. Therefore, the truth portrayed in that movie is politically incorrect.[...]

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) was none too happy with that segment. The group actually contacted Megyn Kelly and requested a retraction.

A retraction for what? Talking about a movie that accurately portrays the hardships that women endure in Muslim countries?

Well, the good news is that Megyn Kelly is no wilting pansy. On her show last night, she notified CAIR, in no uncertain terms, that she’s not retracting anything.

Originally posted on CT.

CAIR’s agenda is to go after anyone who speaks the truth about militant Islam. They’re not interested in helping victims of the abuses of shariah law or honor killings. They want political correctness, and they and the mainstream media cover up the violence against women that is rampant in the Middle East.

It just goes to show that liberals obsessed with political correctness are more committed to protecting Islam than standing up for “women’s rights,” which is something that they claim is near and dear to their hearts. Where is the real “War on Women,” and why aren’t liberals speaking out about it?

Please share this article on Facebook and Twitter if you support Megyn Kelly and her decision not to cave to an angry Muslim group.

<quoted text>Amount Each President Added to the Debt per Fiscal Year Since 1960:
President Barack Obama: Added $5.081 trillion, a 44% increase to the $11.657 trillion debt level attributable to President Bush at the end of his last budget, FY 2009.
FY 2013 -$672 billion.
FY 2012 -$1.276 trillion.
FY 2011 -$1.229 trillion.
FY 2010 -$1.652 trillion.
FY 2009 -$253 billion.(Congress passed the Economic Stimulus Act, which spent $253 billion in FY 2009. This rare occurrence should be added to President Obama's contribution to the debt.)
President George W. Bush: Added $5.849 trillion, a 101% increase to the $5.8 trillion debt level at the end of Clinton's last budget, FY 2001.
FY 2009 -$1.632 trillion.(Bush's deficit without the impact of the Economic Stimulus Act).
FY 2008 -$1.017 trillion.
FY 2007 -$501 billion.
FY 2006 -$574 billion.
FY 2005 -$554 billion.
FY 2004 -$596 billion.
FY 2003 -$555 billion.
FY 2002 -$421 billion.
Hard to imagine what Bush would have done if Clinton hadn't handed him a budget surplus. You people keep forgetting that Obama started from a much higher base and the rise in debt is going to accelerate faster during a time of recovery after a recession.

Facts: Reagan increased the debt 190%; George H Bush increased the debt 52%; Clinton increased the debt 37%; George W. Bush increased the debt 87% and as of January, 2012, Obama had increased the debt 45%.
