“How could a White House appear so confident and incompetent at the same time?” -Nancy Gibbs

The American people and the media think the President is untrustworthy. The President is “pretty much” able to now do whatever he wants. See related article Nuclear Option Now Real – Pure Evil, by Pure Evil, and while we are seeing the truth revealed, let’s share why Obamacare is NOT legal or the law.
The **expletive*** has hit the proverbial fan in every US household due to every lie covering every previous lie from the “most” switch it, least, transparent Presidency ever. Finally, the WH Press club along with MSM media everywhere is catching on due to the fallout now hitting them square in the journalistic jaws. Unable to see or hear anything in their official ‘brown shoe leather pounding’ official capacity on or inside the White House grounds or calendar. True frustration has set in from all sides on all levels from photojournalists to editors. Partisanship has nothing to do with censorship. The Dictator’s walls have officially been built to now be seen by all. Welcome to Obama’s Press service where one size government-owned only photo ops and government approved and released statement fits all.
Stopping the parasites of the progressive party will be even harder now. Protecting the American people is secondary to the selfish me-first Communist Progs. 251 years of Senate rules out-the-window, God help us. Pray -PBN
The partisan battles that have paralyzed Washington in recent years took a historic turn on Thursday, when Senate Democrats eliminated filibusters for most presidential nominations, severely curtailing the political leverage of the Republican minority in the Senate and assuring an escalation of partisan warfare.
The rule change means federal judge nominees and executive-office appointments can be confirmed by a simple majority of senators, rather than the 60-vote super majority that has been required for more than two centuries.
271 words delivered by Lincoln studied by successors as a guide. But We the People should take it to heart!Actual Address Delivered at the Dedication of the Cemetery at Gettysburg on November 19, 1863 at bottom of this post. Please share.
Lincoln loved God as he clearly stated.
that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom — and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.
It’s your choice in a free nation to love the Lord or not, that’s liberty. If we stop being a country that elevates the individual freedom, the power will continue to shift more toward government and continue to erode our individual liberties. Daily it should becoming more evident by the general public. But is it? It is obvious that Progressivism never works, and never has worked anywhere in the world as the video in this link clearly explains. And every time the progressive model has been tried, and politically starts to take root, it becomes irreversible until the country dies as Tytler clearly pronounces and proves those who are willing to do their own due diligence and look at the historical record here is an article that poses the very question “Is America in her Death Throes or Readying for a New Revolution? – Have Faith Tytler states
“A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy, which is always followed by a dictatorship. “
When we allow a president like Obama continue to lie and shred the constitution we propel ourselves down the road to utter failure. ObamaCare Not “Law of The Land” ONLY House Can Tax! It is however another incremental step toward tyranny and loss of freedom.
Today is the Anniversary of the date Abraham Lincoln shared the Gettysburg Address, sadly now, as you read you’ll see perhaps even feel the true regression of character and truth that have taken hold in our Great and Exceptional United States of America. God bless America, God Bless Americans!
Jennifer Weber can’t read the Gettysburg Address to her students at the University of Kansas without taking a risk.
She chokes up a little, though she’s a Civil War author and historian. “A new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.”She starts losing it right about there.
A day after he questioned President Obama’s decision to unwind a major tenet of the health-care law and said the nation’s capital might not go along, D.C. insurance commissioner William P. White was fired.
White was called into a meeting Friday afternoon with one of Mayor Vincent C. Gray’s (D) top deputies and told that the mayor “wants to go in a different direction,” White told The Washington Post on Saturday.
Commissioner William P. White said he felt compelled to say there would be problems with extending old plans.
U.S. attorney is seeking documents the District attorney general says are protected by attorney-client privilege.
White said the mayoral deputy never said that he was being asked to leave because of his Thursday statement on health care. But he said the timing was hard to ignore. Roughly 24 hours later, White said, he was “basically being told, ‘Thanks, but no thanks.’ ”
White was one of the first insurance commissioners in the nation last week to push back against Obama’s attempt to smooth over part of the botched rollout of the Affordable Care Act: millions of unexpected cancellations of insurance plans.
In persuading Congress to vote for the health-care overhaul, Obama had promised that Americans who liked their insurance plans would be able to keep them. When that turned out to not be the case, Obama apologized last week. And to stem growing bipartisan dissent, he announced Thursday that plans slated to be canceled next year to comply with the legislation could be extended for

There has never been anything that I’ve ever seen like this. I just think its a total catastrophe. And now what hes doing. Look, it was the big lie. And now hes said we’ll delay the lie for one year. – Donald Trump
It’s amazing to us how the EPA tries to get it’s dirty hands into everything. Amazing, but not surprising. Anything this administration CAN do to control the American people, it WILL do. If our government is so concerned about pollutants and poisons maybe they should take a look at China and India’s manufacturing pollution, and not with the tiniest amount of lead in a Philadelphia fire hydrant. –PBN
Philadelphia has 119 fire hydrants that cost about $2,000 each waiting in a warehouse to be installed, yet they sit high and dry because federal regulators say their fittings might taint drinking water with lead.
The City of Brotherly Love and communities across the U.S. face the specter of hundreds of millions of dollars in useless hydrants after a surprise ruling last month by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency that requires fireplugs put in after Jan. 4 meet stricter standards for lead content, said Tom Curtis of the American Water Works Association in Denver. That means cities must scrap or retrofit inventory or buy hydrants and parts that some vendors aren’t even making yet.
Manufacturers and Curtis’s group, which represents utilities that serve about 80 percent of Americans, are urging the agency to reconsider or at least allow more time to comply. American Cast Iron Pipe Co., one of the largest hydrant makers, is seeing some customers delay or cancel orders.
“This delivers a huge cost and probably no health protection,” said Curtis, the water group’s deputy executive director. “It needs to be rethought.”
Mueller Water Products Inc. (MWA), an Atlanta-based company that says it is the largest U.S. hydrant maker, supports efforts to have fireplugs excluded from the EPA rule. It cited “no discernible health risk,” in a statement.
Hydrants pose little, if any, risk of long-term lead exposure because they are used to supply drinking water only on occasions such as a festival or when a main breaks, Curtis said by telephone from Washington.
Some insurance commissioners already have rejected President Obama’s plan to allow Americans hold onto barebones health plans for another year, saying the move will undercut their attempts to build a balanced insurance system under the reforms. They threw cold water on the plan mere hours after Mr. Obama announced the decision as a way to quash unrest among Democrats whose constituents are losing their existing health insurance.

Washington State Insurance Commissioner Mike Kreidler said permitting state residents to keep plans that do not meet Obamacare’s minimum-coverage requirements could upset the state’s carefully calibrated health exchange. “I do not believe his proposal is a good deal for the state of Washington,” he said. “In the interest
It’s good to know there’s at least a possibility of good men and women working at the Federal Reserve. Unfortunately Mr. Huszar no longer works there. It would appear that being honest is not a trait mutually inclusive to those who work in our government. Who would have thought? –PBN
There’s a real question as to whether the massive bond-buying program known as quantitative easing was worth the cost, former Federal Reserve official Andrew Huszar said Tuesday.
“My argument is not that QE was not at all useful,” he said on CNBC’s “Fast Money.”
“I believe that at the time, it was just one more tool that the Fed introduced to try to help the economy,” he said. “My point, ultimately, is the idea that very quickly into QE, it started becoming obvious that it wasn’t working in the way that it was supposed to.”
Jay Carney just briefed reporters in a White House Press Conference on Obamacare and other issues such as the status of Iran. Responding to Bill Clinton’s comment on Obamacare aka “The Affordable Care Act”, the ACA or the “Marketplace”, “The big lesson is that we are better off with this law than without it.” Carney stated, “The President as you know has pledged to ask his task team to address this problem. Because his focus is that people get quality and low-cost health insurance.”
“It means the enrollment numbers will be lower than expected.”
“More than half of those individuals will have better insurance… More than half will qualify for subsidies and more than half will qualify for Medicaid.” The President has asked his team to address this problem.”
Some additional notable quotes from Jay Carney on the failure to launch President Obama’s signature Healthcare mandate, “The Affordable Care Act” aka “Obamacare” illegally forced upon the Republic of the United States of America:
“I cannot confirm those numbers. The administration will release numbers later in this month. I anticipate later this week.”
“The pattern of behavior is to shop around and wait when you don’t have to purchase.”
“We expect that pattern to work itself out”
“They’ve been working through that punch list.”
“Our goal is to have that website functioning effectively by the end of the month.”
“They can also apply and enroll by mail.”
“The site will be functioning effectively by the end of the month.”
“But we expect it to be functioning effectively for the vast majority of users by the end of the month.”
“In fact, Chairman Issa said on Fox News that he wanted the website fixed and fixed quickly.”
Carney surprisingly quoted Fox News as its source referring to Chairman Issa holding hearings on the debacle surrounding the failure of all things Obamacare. Wow what a turn around from the initial desire of the Obama administration to denounce Fox News as a “legitimate news agency” early on in Obama’s first four years. Guess conservatives are making some progress.
Guy Benson had previously reported for Fox News that there would be potentially a much lower sign up rate than the already low percentage number of 1% of the desired 500 thousand for this time period so far.
In addition it was reported, “400,000 signed up for Medicaid. Permanent shortage of paying customers.” The latest on the status of Obamacare enrollees was expected to be much lower than anticipated. Immediately prior to the White House Press conference on the heated topic of the disastrous launch and consequences of Obama’s Obamacare, Lou Dobbs reported,”70 million on Medicaid and upwards of 50 million on food stamps.”
Their ratio [the government's] was 9 to 7 for every 9 people signing up 7 would pay for it on regular Healthcare insurance.
The ultimate goal for the ObamaCare program is to take high premiums from the young and healthy and give it to the older on government subsidized healthcare (i.e Medicare.)
“Where are we getting these extra Federal dollars?” Alice asked Lou, “We are watching a greater taxation result.” “Of course there is always the time-honored deficit to lean upon.”

Thanks go out to Mr. Wakeley and Mr. Chamovitz for their efforts to make the final journey of those who served protecting our great country. We pray that the families of all veterans, alive and passed on, will be blessed and comforted. –PBN
John Wakeley, a field maintenance employee at Pittsburgh International Airport, was flabbergasted when he saw how the casket of Army veteran Garrette Conn, 21, was handled.
“(They) put the flag-draped coffin on the baggage cart like a set of golf clubs,” Wakeley told WTAE-TV in Pitsburgh. “I was upset. I thought it was a disgrace. Men and women have given their lives to protect the freedoms of everyone here and to me they were just being treated like a regular piece of baggage.”
His coworker Mark Chamovitz felt the same way.
“When the (military) told me they were going to put them on a regular baggage cart, it sent shivers down my spine. That’s not a dignified way to end a fallen hero’s journey,” Chamovitz, an airport operations duty manager, told Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. “(The carts) are not in the greatest shape.”
So the pair came up with a plan to refurbish a baggage cart into something to honor the remains of fallen soldiers. The Vietnam Veterans of Beaver County hooked them up with Hall Industries in Ellwood City, which used spare materials to create the Honor Wagon.
The special wagon will be used to transport caskets of fallen veterans from aircraft to awaiting hearses, WTAE reported.
The refurbished cart has a hollowed-out center with room for a casket while plexiglass-like windows on both sides protect the casket while allowing it to be viewed. The exterior is covered with logos from all military branches and has 13 spear points on each side, signifying the original colonies — and the words “Never Forgotten” are inscribed on the rear, the Tribune-Review reported.
“I just feel strongly that fallen soldiers deserve better than being in the back of a pickup or on a raggedy, old belt,” David McLaughlin, a veteran and plant manager of Hall Industries, told the Tribune-Review. “This will give them a little bit of honor when they come back.”
