Boehner Mocks GOP Colleagues

Boehner does not represent the base of his party. He is not a leader – only
a person in a leadership position.

Some of his remarks in this article could have been made by Harry Reid,
Nancy Pelosi or President Obama.

I’m hopeful that Republican & Democrat leadership are both going to get an
awakening this November because most Americans have seen these politicians
fail for too long on too many fronts. I’m HOPEful that good CHANGE is
coming.

Why Would An African-American Say This?

Why would an African-American say this? He’s not getting rich being this man’s bodyguard. He’s a volunteer. He’s not saying this to gain favor with influential people or even the public, in general. Then why would he say this? Does this man know more about Cliven Bundy than the rest of us – media, politicians and activists included? If you say he’s stupid, ignorant or the like, consider that criticism of an African-American could be viewed – by some – as racist. It is 2014.

The Most Secretive White House Ever – Says NY Times

“The Obama years are a benchmark for a new level of secrecy and control,” Abramson said in an interview with The Takeaway. “It’s created quite a challenging atmosphere for The New York Times, and for some of the best reporters in my newsroom who cover national security issues in Washington.”

She continues:

I would say it is the most secretive White House that I have ever been involved in covering, and that includes — I spent 22 years of my career in Washington and covered presidents from President Reagan on up through now, and I was Washington bureau chief of the Times during George W. Bush’s first term.”

Revolving Door

Media Research
Center. America's Media Watchdog
MRC Supporter,

I know I don’t have to tell you that today’s media have a blatant left-wing bias. But did you realize just how blurred the lines have become between the Obama Administration and the liberal media?

Currently there are more than thirty media personnel working as reporters, editors, correspondents, anchors, producers or media executives who once toiled for President Obama or his campaign.

And this doesn’t even include personnel who have put in past stints for Democrat officials or liberal groups which advance Obama’s agenda.That explains why the talking points advanced by the White House are so faithfully parroted by the media outlets on the evening news:

Despite evidence to the contrary, the networks mimicked the White House spin that ObamaCare won’t cut jobs since those expected to move from full-time to part-time work would do so voluntarily. This, just hours after the same nonsense was advanced by White House Press Secretary Jay Carney.

Even reporter Sharyl Attkisson who was squeezed out of her position at CBS news because of her hard hitting journalism, confesses, “People would be surprised at the level of cooperation reporters have in general with politicians.”

At the Media Research Center, we’re not surprised—with more than 60 in-house news analysts documenting every major news story for more than 25 years, we’ve proven that the national media’s primary objective is not to report the news, but to spin, distort and suppress the news in order to brainwash Americans into accepting socialism . And the Obama Administration has taken this incestuous relationship to a new level.

And now, with the critical midterm elections just around the corner, they are working even harder to manipulate the American public in hopes of swaying the election in favor of their liberal candidates. We must not allow them to get away with it.

You can join with thousands of Americans and stand up to this out-of-control liberal media in our campaign to STOP the Propaganda.With a gift to the MRC, you can give us the resources to intensify our fight against the liberal media and dismantle the unholy alliance with the White House and other Washington politicians.

This is a vital step towards preventing the media from stealing the 2014 elections.

Help us get a head start on meeting our $50,000 goal right now.

If you’re outraged by the clandestine cooperation between the White House and their willing accomplices in the media, then now is the time to fight back.

Take a stand with the MRC and make your voice heard today.

Sincerely,

L. Brent Bozell III

A Party At The White House

Party at the White House (Nope, not with Beyonce this time)..

4/18/14

When President Obama and Vice President Biden weren’t taking selfies and joining Instagram this week, they were meeting with state insurance commissioners and health insurance industry executives. While those who attended have kept their lips tightly sealed as to what was discussed in the meetings, we did learn a few details.

The first meeting occurred on Thursday morning, when over 44 state insurance commissioners and CEO of the NAIC, Senator Ben Nelson, met with President Obama, Vice President Biden and other senior administration officials; including HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and CMS Administrator Marilyn Tavenner, White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough, Senior Adviser Valerie Jarrett, Health Policy Adviser Phil Schiliro and CCIIO Acting Director Mandy Cohen. They discussed the recent end of open enrollment and gave suggestions to prepare for the 2015 open enrollment period. After the meeting, the NAIC issued a press release, stating that the meeting “was an opportunity for regulators to discuss ongoing challenges they see in their markets and coordinate with the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the administration to find solutions. State regulators expressed concern about the lack of insurance regulatory expertise at CMS with HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius’ impending departure and recommended that the appointment of a permanent director of the Center for Consumer Information and Insurance Oversight (CCIIO) be made quickly. Furthermore, the commissioners urged that the new director rely on the expertise of state insurance regulators as decisions are made.” By the end of the meeting, the commissioners were not able to report on enrollment numbers or the age breakdown of those enrolled. That information was announced by President Obama later in the day.

Following their meeting with the state insurance commissioners, President Obama, Vice President Biden and other top senior administration officials went into a two-hour meeting with some health insurance industry executives; including Daniel Hilferty, president and CEO of Independence Blue Cross, Karen Ignagni, president and CEO of AHIP, Scott Serota, president and CEO of the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association, Joe Swedish, CEO of WellPoint and Bernard Tyson, chairman and CEO of Kaiser Permanente, just to name a few. While many of these top executives have been very vocal about the details of their high-level meetings in the past, they kept quiet after their meeting on Thursday. The White House, in a statement, clarified that President Obama told insurer executives that the Administration fully intends on continuing outreach efforts, especially to young adults even though the open enrollment season has come to a close.

The meeting with insurers was soon overshadowed by President Obama’s afternoon press conference where he announced that over 8 million people had selected insurance policies through the health exchanges created under his signature health reform law. Thirty-five percent of enrollees are under age 35 and 28% of enrollees are between the ages of 18 and 34. (the 35% number includes newborns andtoddlers who did NOT sign up as they are considered Dependents not enrollees,  yet another lie from this Administration)! From the get-go, even before Healthcare.gov was even rolled out, the Administration predicted that most Americans would wait until the end of open enrollment to select a plan and it looks like they were right. Here are the month by month totals for both state and federal exchanges:         

(Now all we have to do is (1) see who actually Paid for the coverage and (2) See which folks already had coverage before this Mess!)

* October – 106,185

 * November – 258,497

 * December – 1,788,739 (by the deadline for January 1 coverage)

 * January – 1,146,071

 * February – 942,833

 * March – 2.9 million

 * April 1-15 – 900,000

Add the numbers up and you get a total of 8,042,325 Americans, with nearly half of Americans signing up in the last six weeks.

The president also said during his visit to the White House briefing room that it is “absolutely possible” to consider tweaks to the health reform law, but deferred to Congress for the timeframe and called for a change in tune from the Republicans before it happens. Politically speaking, it is highly unlikely significant changes will go through Congress before the November midterm elections.

Additionally, the president announced his disappointment in the two dozen or so states that chose not to expand Medicaid, saying that “we have 5 million people that could be covered and zero reasons not to do it.” 

We can probably think of a reason or billions as to why some states are hesitant to expand the program, but that’s just us.

Anyhoo, as the president’s press conference came to a close, he called on his party to defend the law, especially now that millions of people have access to care as a result of its implementation. Last but not least, the president noted that this political battle over health reform has been ongoing for five years and it’s time to move onto something else.

Conundrums

Keeping the confused, confused

 

The definition of the word Conundrum is:     Something that is puzzling or confusing.

 

Here are six Conundrums of socialism in the United States of America:

 

1. America is capitalist and greedy – yet half of the population is subsidized.

 

2. Half of the population is subsidized – yet they think they are victims.

 

3. They think they are victims – yet their representatives run the government.

 

4. Their representatives run the government – yet the poor keep getting poorer.

 

5. The poor keep getting poorer – yet they have things that people in other countries only dream about.

 

6. They have things that people in other countries only dream about – yet they want America to be more like those other countries.

 

Think about it!

 

And that, my friends, pretty much sums up the USA in the 21st Century ….

 

It is easier to Fool Someone, than to get someone to admit that they have been fooled!!!

 

 

Questions, But No Answers

This is most certainly the most embarrassing event that
has occurred in the last 16 months.  The burden falls on
the media who have not done anything to investigate this.
If I were to measure BIG events the media touted in the
Last 40 years, I would rank this above the Nixon Watergate
Scandal!!!
So – why has this gone for over a year without a peep from
the media???      
After viewing this 3.5 minute video,
I urge you to forward it to your sphere of influence.

License Plate Agency May Come to Polk County

Commissioner says Polk’s chances high of running own tag office

Published 1:14pm Wednesday, April 16, 2014

by Leah Justice of the Tryon Daily Bulletin
While one commissioner questioned the state desiring to run a tag office out of Polk County, another said Polk has an 80 percent chance of the state allowing the county to run its own tag office.
Polk commissioners met April 7 and first heard from commissioner Ray Gasperson, who read a letter from the state division of motor vehicles indicating that the state is not currently interested in having a state run tag
office in Polk County.
Commissioner Keith Holbert, who has been working on getting a tag office in the county since he was elected in 2012, said at this point there is about an 80 percent chance the state will allow the county to run its own tag office.
Holbert said the state license plate agency recently placed an advertisement in the Asheville Citizen Times for a commercial business to run a tag office in Polk County and if there are no offers, the state could allow the county to run its own tag office.
The last day of the advertisement was April 7, according to Holbert.
If the state allows a tag office, the county plans to run it under the tax office and house the agencies in the current Polk County Early College. Polk owns the building that was originally the Polk County Library, located on Walker Street in Columbus.
Gasperson placed the item on last week’s agenda saying he wanted to clarify where the county is heading with the tag office.
Gasperson read a letter received by the county on July 2, 2013 from the N.C. Department of Transportation Division of Motor Vehicles’ Administrative Officer Donna Boone.
The letter stated that the state had received Polk’s application for a license plate agency and the division uses certain criteria to determine the need to open additional agencies. Some of the criteria, Boone said includes municipal population, vehicle population and the proximity of a new agency to existing agencies.
“We are not currently seeking to open another LPA (license plate agency) in Polk County,” said Boone in the letter. “Generally when a new LPA is needed, the division issues a local media announcement and begins the application and interview process.”
Gasperson also said he had a conversation with Chuck Abernathy, manager of McDowell County, which was the first county to take on running its own license plate agency. Gasperson said he was told it takes McDowell County three full-time employees and one part-time employee to run the office and they are covering the direct costs, but not the indirect costs. McDowell County’s population is approximately 45,000.
“I’ve always said it would be great to have in Polk County,” Gasperson said of a tag office. “I don’t want to get citizens’ hopes up. I’m opposed to growing county government and certainly opposed to it costing extra taxpayer money.”
Holbert responded that if Gasperson had taken the time to ask him, he would have told him where a license plate agency in Polk County stood.
Holbert said when McDowell County first opened they were running their tag office at break even or making a little money. He said right now Polk County is losing money to other counties plus Polk citizens are being charged interest for delinquent bills. Holbert was referring to the new way the state is collecting vehicle taxes and registration at the same time with Holbert saying mistakes are occurring so there have been some incidences where another county is holding taxes a Polk resident has paid resulting in the resident being charged interest and penalties because Polk hasn’t received those payments.
“If we can get it all under our control I think we can make it better,” said Holbert.
Holbert said he thinks Polk can run a license plate agency profitably with likely one full-time person for a county as small as Polk.
Polk County has had license plate offices in the county in the past, all run through individual commercial agencies approved by the state. There has never been a government run license plate agency in Polk County either by the state or the county. Most Polk residents now travel to either Henderson or Rutherford County to take care of license plate needs.
Last year the state driver’s license agency said they would bring the current van that visits Columbus near the post office into the county’s early college building as well. Holbert said he envisions the county tax and tag office also being housed there.
The driver’s license agency has plans to be in the building between July and September, according to Holbert, once the early college moves into its new building, which is currently being renovated near the high schoo

Liberals’ Mob Rule

One of the biggest problems with liberals is they equate difference of opinion to hate. If you don’t agree with a true liberal or Progressive, they cry hate or race. We as Christians are commanded by Jesus to hate the sin and love the sinner. That is something the left can’t comprehend!
