Obama: Brain-Chipped, Mars-Travelling Clone of Pharaoh Akhenaton?
August 1st, 2013
(TrutherGirls)– July 30th, 2013 – Obama’s birth certificate has gotten a lot of attention, but this is the stuff we should really be asking about!

Ten Questions Jay Leno Could Have Asked Barack Obama
1. Over the last couple of weeks, you have made many references to the need to move beyond “phony scandals.” What specifically do you mean by that?
2. Where were you during the Benghazi attack?
3. Why did you and Hillary Clinton claim for weeks that the murder of four Americans in Benghazi was caused by a YouTube video that no one saw or even heard of until you sent Susan Rice on five Sunday shows to make that ridiculous assertion?
4. Last May, when we learned that the IRS has been bullying American citizens trying to exercise their First Amendment rights, you said that the misconduct uncovered was “inexcusable.” What has your administration done to express your displeasure with the officials involved?
5. Has anyone been fired as a result of the IRS misconduct?
6. Is IRS senior official Lois Lerner, the one who headed the division that engaged in that unacceptable misconduct, going to stay on paid leave indefinitely?
7. Speaking of the IRS, recently the acting chief of the IRS, Daniel Werful, told a House committee that he would prefer to keep his current health care plan rather than switch to one from the Affordable Care Act exchanges. Since the IRS is the agency charged with enforcing Obamacare, how do you explain the fact that officials in that agency think Obamacare is good enough for others but not for Mr. Werfel and other IRS employees?
8. Recently, your administration delayed the Obamacare employer mandate for one year. How can you decide to enforce only certain parts of duly-enacted legislation, which you have signed?
9. Some have suggested that this delay is designed to prevent Obamacare from having the effect in the 2014 mid-term election that it had in 2010; that is, destroying any hope of Democrat victories in most Congressional districts. Is that true?
10. Like you, your Attorney General, Eric Holder, is historic. He is the first AG to be held in contempt of Congress for stonewalling requests about his changing stories about his disastrous “Fast and Furious” scheme. Do you agree with Mr. Holder’s withholding information from Congress? Have you expressed an opinion to him about whether or not he should cooperate? If so, what did you tell him? If not, why haven’t you spoken to him about it?

In the wake of George Zimmerman's acquittal, an artist's chilling image of Martin Luther King Jr., in a Trayvon Martin-style hooded sweatshirt has gone viral, in an effort by some to link the teen's death to the struggles of the civil rights movement.

Photo Shows Martin Luther King, Jr. in 'Trayvon Hoodie'
July 18, 2013
A doctored photo showing Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., draped in a hooded sweatshirt reminiscent of the one Trayvon Martin was wearing the night he died has been shared wildly on social media this week.
The image was created by artist Nikkolas Smith and shows King's face shadowed by the hoodie, a symbol that has become synonymous with supporters of Martin. The Florida teenager was wearing a hooded sweatshirt the night George Zimmerman shot and killed the unarmed Martin.
Zimmerman was found not guilty of murder for Martin's death on Saturday, sparking outrage on social media and unrest at some protests around the country.
A niece of King's, former Georgia state representative Alveda King, said in a statement to ABC News today that her uncle would have preferred to focus on the content of the case rather than the articles of clothing involved.
Bet you racist pukes cheered and condoned this story though didn't you.

GOP searches for its missing white voters, too
Remember how Republican leaders vowed to improve their outreach to minorities after Mitt Romney's demographic disaster in November? Well, not so fast, amigos. A lot of folks in the Grand Old Party's conservative wing prefer to tap another group that let them down: the "missing white voters."
They're the focus of "The Case of the Missing White Voters, Revisited," a widely discussed four-part series by Sean Trende, senior elections analyst at RealClearPolitics.
"Democrats liked to mock the GOP as the 'Party of White People' after the 2012 elections," Trende wrote. "But from a purely electoral perspective, that's not a terrible thing to be. Even with present population projections, there are likely to be a lot of non-Hispanic whites in this country for a very long time."
Comprehensive immigration reform was named in a postelection "autopsy" by Republican National Committee leaders as essential to patching up frayed relations with Hispanic voters, in particular. But legislation has since run up against a major push-back by House Republicans after passing the Democratic-controlled Senate.
No sweat, says Trende. "(T)he 2012 elections actually weren't about a demographic explosion with nonwhite voters," he writes. "Instead, they were about a large group of white voters not showing up."
Using available exit poll and census data, Trende estimates the actual turnout of blacks, Hispanics and other nonwhites increased about 2 million over four years earlier, a healthy number but considerably less than the 6 million white voters who, he calculates, voted in 2008 but failed to show up in 2012.
That backs up a position advanced by conservatives Phyllis Schlafly and Pat Buchanan and the nonpartisan Center for Immigration Studies. Maybe, they argue, the GOP should focus on the disenchanted among white voters (who made up 72 percent of the electorate in 2012) instead of worrying so much about Latinos.
But unless the party wants to confine itself to local, state and regional power, it needs to reach out to all constituencies, argue GOP establishment figures like political consultant Karl Rove.
Otherwise the math doesn't add up, he argues in a June op-ed in The Wall Street Journal. Romney, who won 59 percent of white voters, would have needed 62.54 percent to beat President Barack Obama, Rove writes. "That's a tall order, given that Ronald Reagan received 63 percent of the white vote in his 1984 victory, according to the Congressional Quarterly's analysis of major exit polls," Rove writes. "It's unreasonable to expect Republicans to routinely pull numbers that last occurred in a 49-state sweep."
I don't often agree with Rove, but I think he's right this time. As the "autopsy" report found in polls and focus groups revealed, the GOP has lost touch with a lot of voters across racial and ideological lines, leading to their fifth presidential election out of the last six in which the party failed to win a majority of the popular vote.
What happened to the missing white voters? Democrats asked that same question after 1988, their fifth loss of the previous six national elections. They responded by reconnecting with working-class white "Reagan Democrats" and reoriented their message back to the political center to solve problems, not just present policy arguments.
part of the "re-inventing" themselves. hahaha

THIS DAY IN HISTORY
Nixon and Agnew receive the Republican Party nomination. 1974 > Nixon announces that he will resign the Presidency. 1988
In an evening televised address, President Richard M. Nixon announces his intention to become the first president in American history to resign.
With impeachment proceedings underway against him for his involvement in the Watergate affair, Nixon was finally bowing to pressure from the public and Congress to leave the White House. "By taking this action," he said in a solemn address from the Oval Office, "I hope that I will have hastened the start of the process of healing which is so desperately needed in America."
Just before noon the next day, Nixon officially ended his term as the 37th president of the United States. Minutes later, Vice President Gerald R. Ford was sworn in as the 38th president of the United States in the East Room of the White House. After taking the oath of office, President Ford spoke to the nation in a television address, declaring, "My fellow Americans, our long national nightmare is over." He later pardoned Nixon for any crimes he may have committed while in office, explaining that he wanted to end the national divisions created by the Watergate scandal.
On June 17, 1972, five men, including a salaried security coordinator for President Nixon's reelection committee, were arrested for breaking into and illegally wiretapping the Democratic National Committee headquarters in the Washington, D.C., Watergate complex. Soon after, two other former White House aides were implicated in the break-in, but the Nixon administration denied any involvement. Later that year, reporters Carl Bernstein and Bob Woodward of The Washington Post discovered a higher-echelon conspiracy surrounding the incident, and a political scandal of unprecedented magnitude erupted.
In May 1973, the Senate Select Committee on Presidential Campaign Activities, headed by Senator Sam Ervin of North Carolina, began televised proceedings on the rapidly escalating Watergate affair. One week later, Harvard law professor Archibald Cox was sworn in as special Watergate prosecutor. During the Senate hearings, former White House legal counsel John Dean testified that the Watergate break-in had been approved by former Attorney General John Mitchell with the knowledge of White House advisers John Ehrlichman and H.R. Haldeman, and that President Nixon had been aware of the cover-up. Meanwhile, Watergate prosecutor Cox and his staff began to uncover widespread evidence of political espionage by the Nixon reelection committee, illegal wiretapping of thousands of citizens by the administration, and contributions to the Republican Party in return for political favors.
In July, the existence of what were to be called the Watergate tapes--official recordings of White House conversations between Nixon and his staff--was revealed during the Senate hearings. Cox subpoenaed these tapes, and after three months of delay President Nixon agreed to send summaries of the recordings. Cox rejected the summaries, and Nixon fired him. His successor as special prosecutor, Leon Jaworski, leveled indictments against several high-ranking administration officials, including Mitchell and Dean, who were duly convicted.
Public confidence in the president rapidly waned, and by the end of July 1974 the House Judiciary Committee had adopted three articles of impeachment against President Nixon: obstruction of justice, abuse of presidential powers, and hindrance of the impeachment process. On July 30, under coercion from the Supreme Court, Nixon finally released the Watergate tapes. On August 5, transcripts of the recordings were released, including a segment in which the president was heard instructing Haldeman to order the FBI to halt the Watergate investigation. Three days later, Nixon announced his resignation.
WHAT? Wiretapping? "I AM NOT A CROOK" HAHAHA]

Beshear introduces website for Kentucky's health insurance exchange
FRANKFORT — After expanding the state's Medicaid program last week to about 308,000 Kentuckians, Gov. Steve Beshear launched several public education and awareness efforts Wednesday to help 332,000 more Kentuckians in need of health care coverage.
Beshear said Kentucky's Health Benefit Exchange, a key part of the federal Affordable Care Act is preparing to open for business. During a Capitol news conference, the Democratic governor introduced a website, Kynect.ky.gov , to help Kentuckians learn more about the program.
Beshear signed an executive order last July to create the exchange, which is an online marketplace offering health insurance plans for Kentuckians.
Beshear said the program, called "Kynect: Kentucky's Healthcare Connection," will help more than 600,000 Kentuckians get health care coverage through private insurance plans, Medicaid or the Kentucky Children's Health Insurance Program.
"Individuals, families and small businesses will be able to use Kynect for one-stop shopping to find health coverage and determine if they are eligible for payment assistance or tax credits to help cover costs," Beshear said.
Carrie Banahan, executive director of the state exchange, said open enrollment for those seeking to buy insurance begins Oct. 1 and runs through March 31, 2014. Insurance coverage can begin as soon as Jan. 1. Open enrollment for small businesses also begins Oct. 1, but businesses with fewer than 50 employees will be able to enroll employees in plans offered through Kynect at any point after that date.
During open enrollment, Kentuckians will be able to compare and select health insurance plans and find out whether they qualify for Medicaid, KCHIP or other programs by using the Kynect website.
With Kynect, individuals can find out if they qualify for payment assistance and special discounts on deductibles, copayments and co-insurance. Small businesses can enroll their employees in health plans, and businesses with fewer than 25 employees may qualify for tax credits.
A toll-free hotline will open Aug. 15 at 1-855-4kynect or 1-855-459-6328.
Kentucky has received $252 million from the federal government to set up the exchange.
The development and operation of the state's exchange will be financed entirely with federal dollars until Jan. 1, 2015, after which it will be wholly financed with revenues it generates, Beshear said.
Beginning in January, most Americans will be required to have health insurance or pay a penalty. Under the law, no one can be denied coverage due to a pre-existing health condition or lose coverage because a family member gets sick.
Insurance companies will be prohibited from charging women more than men for the same coverage, and children will be allowed to stay on their parents' health insurance plan until they reach the age of 26.
Banahan said five insurance companies — Anthem, Humana, Bluegrass Family Health, United Healthcare and Kentucky Health Cooperative — have filed notice of intent to offer programs on the Kentucky exchange.
They have not yet filed rates, she said.
Tea Party activist David Adams of Jessamine County has filed a lawsuit in Franklin Circuit Court challenging the legality of the state's health exchange.
Adams claims that Beshear did not receive "proper approval" from the Kentucky General Assembly to create the exchange.
A hearing is scheduled for Monday in Franklin Circuit Court to consider a request by Beshear to dismiss the lawsuit.
Beshear said Wednesday he is not concerned about the lawsuit.
"I think it is very clear that as governor I have the authority under the Constitution and the laws of Kentucky to implement this exchange," he said.

Chuck Todd: Hillary Miniseries "A Total Nightmare" For NBC News
CHUCK TODD: This is why this miniseries is a total nightmare for NBC News. Because we know there's this giant firewall, we know we have nothing to do with it, we know that we’d love probably to be as critical, or whatever it is going to be, if it comes out. But there’s nothing we can do about it. And we’re going to only own the negatives. Whether it’s negative because it’s the Clinton people are upset that it’s too tough on them, or negative because the Republicans think it’s this glorification of her -- no matter what, only we are going to own it, because people are going to see the peacock and they see NBC and see NBC News and think:‘Well, they can’t be that separate.'
REINCE PRIEBUS: "I am not going to have you moderate the Republican debates... because you're not actually interested in the future of the Republican Party and our nominees. That's not a slam on you, Mika, but I have to choose moderators that are actually interested in the Republican Party and our nominees. It’s not going to be NBC, if they continue to go forward with this miniseries."
Chuck has a legitimate concern since he is the "NEWS" portion of NBC and the projected miniseries is in the "ENTERTAINMENT" portion of NBC. Priepuss is just blackmailing them fearing it will boost her already popularity and projected winner of the 2016 election.
Can't get anymore TRANSPARENT than that. Nice spin A Lunatic. I will give them the REAL story.

Ted Yoho, GOP Congressman, Says Obamacare Tanning Tax Is 'Racist'
At a Saturday town hall meeting in Gainesville, Fla., Rep. Ted Yoho (R-Fla.) discussed his conversation with House Speaker John Boehner about a provision in the Affordable Care Act that he considered to be "racist": the plan's 10 percent tax on tanning beds.
"I had a little fun with Boehner and told him about the sun tanning tax," he said at the meeting, according to audio posted online by RightWingWatch. "[Boehner] goes,'I didn't know it was in there,' and I said,'Yes, it's a 10 percent tax.' He goes,'Well, that's not that big of a deal.' I said,'It's a racist tax.'"
In 2010, conservative radio host Doc Thompson voiced a similar complaint while standing in for Glenn Beck on his Fox News radio show.
"I now too feel the pain of racism. Racism has been dropped at my front door and the front door of all lighter-skinned Americans," Thompson said. "Why would the President of the United States of America -- a man who says he understands racism, a man who has been confronted with racism -- why would he sign such a racist law?"
HAHAHA, Do they see how ignorant they arE? Oh that's right. NO, everyday they demonstrate why they can't win an election. Sure makes them mad don't it? haha
Off to get the kielbasa off the grill and call my sweetie to come and eat. You circus clowns have fun with your ignorant selves. I will be back to throw you some peanuts later and get a big laugh from your latest act. You may still be shy one clown for the big tent. lol
Have fun little lemmings.
#114182 Aug 8, 2013
oops, forgot this one. So funny. Talk about CRYBABIES. lmao@ignorant lemming tools.
All about Hillary.
On Monday, the Republican National Committee called on NBC entertainment and CNN -- both airing films on Hillary Clinton -- to abandon their plans, saying it was a “thinly veiled attempt at putting a thumb on the scales of the 2016 presidential election.” Their threat: nix the projects, or 2016 debates with the networks could be in doubt.
NBC News’ official statement: "NBC News is completely independent of NBC Entertainment and has no involvement in this project." NBC’s entertainment division told The Hollywood Reporter that the miniseries is in such early development that the script hasn’t been written nor has production been ordered. So what’s the RNC up to here?
Our translation: Take a deep breath and remember -- it’s only 2013, and 2016 is a long way away. But this is part of a larger strategy by the GOP -- not just to continue one of their favorite past-times of hitting the media (which the base loves), but the challenge they have at chipping away at what seems like the inevitability of the former first lady while there’s no clear frontrunner on their side.
