GAO Says ObamaCare Website a Failure

GAO report cites Obama Administration “management failure” for healthcare.gov rollout woes   Incompetence? From the Obama Administration? Surely you’re as shocked as I am! But really, it’s true. The GAO says so. A nonpartisan congressional investigation has concluded that management failures by the Obama administration set the stage for the computer woes that paralyzed President Barack Obama’s health care program website last fall, officials told The Associated Press. The findings are in a report to be released Thursday by the Government Accountability Office, which has spent months investigating the health law’s chaotic rollout. GAO is the nonpartisan investigative agency of […]

CNN must be so proud of Bill Weir Hat/Tip to Mediaite. CNN Anchor Bill Weir to Fox Nation: ‘You Willfully Ignorant F*cksticks’   The Clinton News Network, I mean CNN just keeps proving why they deserve the bottom of the basement ratings. In an effort to show his unbiased, journalistic integrity, CNN anchor Bill Weir tweeted a gutter-worthy message to Fox Nation.

Progressive View: Socialize Debt To Grow The Economy

Socializing debt is certainly not a new concept. Who among us. who has ever bought a house, did not take advantage the mortgage interest deduction when itemizing our tax returns? What a great deal!

The real estate industry lobbies hard in support of the mortgage interest deduction by arguing the housing industry is a main driver of our economy. Now, as reported by Investors Business Daily, we learn that the paragon of progressive virtue and faux indian princess, […]

Here is today’s lesson: .

Beheadings Of Infidels, Halal Sex Products And “Muslims Don’t Like Dogs” – Part 1

Austria accused Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan of stirring up trouble on June 19, when he urged thousands of cheering supporters in Vienna to reject “assimilation.” Erdogan was rallying support for his candidacy ahead of Turkish presidential elections in August, and expatriate Turks have become a significant bloc of voters after changes to the electoral system now allow them to cast votes abroad. Around 268,000 people of Turkish origin live in Austria, according to government figures, of whom nearly 115,000 are Turkish citizens. Austrian Foreign Minister Sebastian Kurz, who had expressly warned Erdogan not to undermine efforts to integrate Turks […]

New Emails: Lois Lerner Referred to Conservatives as ‘***holes’ and ‘TeRrorists’

Hat/Tip to CNSNews.com. Even though former IRS Commissioner Steve Miller testified that there was no political animus towards Tea Party & Conservative groups, emails have surfaced showing what we all already knew. A newly discovered email exchange from Lois Lerner’s official IRS email account “directly demonstrates Ms. Lerner’s deep animus towards conservatives, which she refers to as ‘—holes,’” House Ways and Means Committee Chair Dave Camp wrote in a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder on Wednesday. She evidently views those of us on the right as terrorists. In that Nov. 9, 2012 email, Lerner further suggests that conservatives will […]

Dear ________________: (A Letter From the EPA)

As is often the case here at the worldwide headquarters of Manhattan Infidel, disturbing stuff gets deposited on my desk (and not just last night’s 3 am taco.  With bacon.)  In this case it is a letter that the Environmental Protection Agency will be sending out to all Americans. Dear _________: It has come to the attention of the EPA that it occasionally rains on your property.  It has also come to our attention that when it does rain puddles are left on your lawn. These puddles then disappear over time.  We have photographic evidence of this. Why is this? Why has this […]

Breaking News: Obama Yells at Netanyahu, Tries to Bully Him, Issues Orders to Israel to Stand Down

Obama Angry with Israel, Shouts at NetanyahuHat/Tip to the Tea Party News Network & The Right Scoop. In this transcript of the phone call, we have to call it an alleged transcript for now, does Barack Obama cross the line? Is he really siding with the Terrorists, did he really tell Israel to stop defending herself?? Barack Obama: I demand that Israel agrees to an immediate, unilateral ceasefire and halt all offensive activities, in particular airstrikes. Benjamin Netanyahu: And what will Israel receive in exchange for a ceasefire? BO: I believe that Hamas will cease its rocket fire — silence […]

The Lawless President Lectures Student on Dangers of a Country without Laws

Hat/Tip to Breitbart. Yep, our President evidently put down his “pen” and his “phone” long enough to lecture a young student on the need for the rule of law. During a town hall meeting at a summit with the Washington Fellowship for Young African Leaders, President Obama explained to a young African student that to succeed, a burgeoning country required a system of laws. He explained: Regardless of the resources a country possesses, regardless of how talented the people are, if you do not have a basic system of rule of law, of respect for civil rights and human rights, […]

The only person who wants the House to impeach Barack Obama is … Barack Obama

Because nothing else will re-energize his base. His presidency is an abysmal failure. He’s disengaged, disinterested, and borderline delusional. The world is passing him by. So what better way to bump his sagging poll numbers than by pretending he’s under savage attack by Evil Rethuglicans? As if anyone would actually impeach the first black president. Yeah, I can just imagine how well that’ll play in Peoria. Not even The Stupid Party is that stupid. Besides, President Biden. Shudder. John Boehner nailed the Democrats’ strategy — fundraise on fear. House Speaker John Boehner torched Democrats on Tuesday over talk of impeaching […]

Conspiracy Nut Ventura Gets $1.8 Million from Chris Kyle’s Widow & Orphans

    Jury Awards Jesse Ventura $1.8 Million in Defamation Case Against Deceased ‘American Sniper’ Chris Kyle’s Estate The same man who thinks that our government purposely destroyed the World Trade Center, blew up the Pentagon and killed 3,000 Americans just took money out of the mouths of Chris Kyle’s children. Ventura believes that our government is engaged in controlling the weather. He believes that the CIA has a project which would turn ordinary citizens into assasins, i.e. The Manchurian Candidate. He believed the Denver Airport had secret messages for the end of the world in 2012. Ventura has tried […]

Hamas Says No to Two State Solution

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Hamas Chief: We Have No Current Plans To “Coexist” With Israel… Okay, not exactly news. But it needs to be reported. Too bad the MSM won’t do their job, it’s much easier to blame Israel. Via Business Insider: Khaled Meshaal, the political leader of Hamas, said in a recent interview that he has no plans to “coexist” with Israel as it is structured right now. “No. I do not want to live with a state of occupiers,” Mashaal said when directly asked if he wants to “coexist” with Israel or recognize the country “as a Jewish state.” […]

Illegal Immigrants = Bad! Refugees = Good!

  The internet is ablaze this morning with the news that our government is considering a plan to resolve the crisis of tens of thousands of young illegal immigrants from Central America are flooding across our southern border. Bunkerville, as usual,  has done an outstanding job on the subject. Who would have know that such a serious problem could be potentially solved by a linguistic change. The issue of illegal immigrants has become a political hot potato in America over the last years. One attempt to put this problem to rest was to stop calling these people illegal immigrants and […]

Federal Court Rules Against Radical Atheist Group, Ground Zero Cross To Stay…

  Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Sanity prevails. Via Daily Caller: A federal court ruled Monday that the existence of a cross at Ground Zero does not violate the Constitution, slamming the appeal filed by the secular activist group American Atheists. The famous cross, formed by two intersecting beams left standing after the 9/11 attacks, has been a powerful spiritual symbol for many since and even during the tragedy. Frank Silecchia discovered the cross while helping recover bodies from the site. “It was a sign,” he later said. ”a sign God hadn’t deserted us.” American Atheists felt differently. In July 2011 they […]

ObamaCare Architect Caught in Huge Lie, Coins New Term: “Speak-O”

Hat/Tip to TownHall.com. Busted: Obamacare Architect Caught in Epic Lie, Confirming Opponents’ Argument So the left got another defeat in the courts regarding ObamaCare, and what do they do? Well besides going apoplectic, they haul out the spin doctors and let them go to work distorting the truth. When a DC Circuit Court of Appeals panel released its Obamacare-related decision earlier this week, the Left’s self-appointed “wonk” class kicked into damage control overdrive. The three-judge panel ruled that the ‘Affordable’ Care Act’s explicit language proscribed the distribution of subsidies to anyone who did not enroll through state-based marketplaces. The fallout […]

How to Destroy a Hard Drive: IRS Edition – Must See Video

During testimony about Lois Lerner’s hard drive, IRS Commissioner John Koskinen said, “I assume there’s a lot of ways that hard drives can get scratched.” After The Daily Caller reported last week that ex-IRS official Lois Lerner’s computer hard drive was “scratched” and then “shredded,” IRS Commissioner John Koskinen testified before Congress that “I assume there’s a lot of ways that hard drives can get scratched.” Koskinen might technically be right about that, but he left out one detail: it’s a really difficult thing to do. In director Grae Stafford’s latest, The Daily Caller destroys a hard drive. SURGEON GENERAL WARNING: […]

Mark Levin’s Legal Foundation Takes on the EPA

Hat/Tip to Susan Jones of CNSNews.com. Lawsuit Seeks Damages From EPA, ‘A Toxic Waste Dump of Lawlessness’ If I were the EPA, I’d be worried. Mark Levin is an amazing intellect and his knowledge of our Constitution is almost beyond compare. A conservative legal group is asking a federal judge to punish the Environmental Protection Agency for destroying or failing to preserve emails and text messages requested in August 2012 under the Freedom of Information Act. The Landmark Legal Foundation believes the requested — but never delivered — messages to outside groups would have revealed EPA attempts to influence the […]

Pot Seen as Reason for Rise in Denver Homeless

It seems that among younger folks, the legalization of pot has led to an increase in traffic in Denver’s homeless shelters. Officials at some Denver homeless shelters say the legalization of marijuana has contributed to an increase in the number of younger people living on the city’s streets. One organization dealing with the increase is Urban Peak, which provides food, shelter and other services to homeless people aged 15 to 24 in Denver and Colorado Springs. “Of the new kids we’re seeing, the majority are saying they’re here because of the weed,” deputy director Kendall Rames told The Denver Post.

Boston Liberals Love the Downtrodden, Until the Downtrodden Move in Next Door

Boston is the bluest of cities in one of the bluest states. They haven’t voted for a Republican in something like 3,000 years. Arguments over politics hinge on who is more progressive, Che or Elizabeth Warren. Their only gripe about social programs is that government isn’t spending enough money or hasn’t raised taxes sufficiently yet. So it cracks me up to see so many Bostonians turning out against the importation of illegal aliens into Beantown. An anti-illegal immigration rally on Beacon Hill outside the State House on Saturday, July 26 was teeming with protesters. While Bree Sison of CBS Boston […]

National Guard Banned from Vacation Bible School, Allowed to March in Gay Pride Parade

Have you ever attended Vacation Bible School? Around here, we call it VBS and it is the time of the year, usually during summer vacation from school, that children gather at a local, or not so much, school to learn about the Bible and the principles it teaches. In the case of the VBS put on by our church, it is some children’s only opportunity to attend an event that is both educational and uplifting. Not to mention, a lot of fun. During the week, representatives of the local police and fire departments, as well as the local paramedics. It […]

Obama Plans to Completely Stop Enforcing Immigration Laws

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Rep Jeff Sessions: Obama To “Effectively End Immigration Enforcement” Maybe it’s all his newfound “flexibility” that the President is enjoying, or maybe he just doesn’t give a rat’s patooty about the Constitution. Either way, it looks as if Obama is going to give defacto amnesty to all the Illegal Alien Children streaming across our southern border. Via Weekly Standard: The Obama administration is preparing to effectively “nullify” the immigration laws of the United States through an executive action, says one Republican senator. As Time reported Thursday, President Obama appears prepared to provide millions of illegal immigrants living […]

Even Obama has Obama Fatigue…

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers.   Obama has low level staffers for the minor problems. Via The Telegraph President Obama has emotionally checked out of his job a couple of years early, it seems. How can one tell? Candidates for president who brazenly assume they are the inevitable victor are sometimes accused of “measuring the drapes” for the White House. Obama, conversely, seems to be prematurely packing his bags in hopes for an early departure. Just last week, for example, the Los Angeles Times reported that “The First Family is believed to be in escrow on a contemporary home in a gated […]

Hamas Mega-Attack Planned Through Gaza Terror Tunnels

Hamas had apparently been preparing a murderous assault on Israeli civilian targets for the coming Jewish New Year Holiday, Rosh Hashanah, which begins on September 24, according anonymous sources in the Israeli security services, as reported today by the Israeli daily Maariv. The Hamas plan consisted of what was to be a surprise attack in which 200 fighters would be dispatched through each of dozens of tunnels dug by Hamas under the border from Gaza to Israel, and seize kibbutzim and other communities while killing and kidnapping Israeli civilians. Israeli soldiers already frustrated a surprise assault by Hamas through one […]

Journey To The Border: Who’s Paying The Freight?

Warner Todd Huston of Publius Forum has a question. It’s a very good question which deserves an answer. His question was derived from this English version of a recent AP article about the how and the who and the costs involved in moving tens of thousands teenagers and children from Central America to the southern border region of the United States. If you want to understand how this extremely well organized human trafficking business works, the AP article is a must read. The investigative reporters learned that those wanting to come to the US are charged anywhere from $2500 to $10,000. […]

Grounded

“Support for Israel is a minority opinion in the Democratic Party.” – William McGurn “For years now it has been clear that Barack Obama is unusually hostile to the state of Israel and unusually sympathetic to or admiring of anti-Semites such as Rashid Khalidi.” – Quin Hillyer Congress, at least that part of it not controlled by America’s domestic enemies the Democrats, is taking steps to designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a Foreign Terrorist Organization. The Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act of 2014—sponsored by Rep. Michele Bachmann (R., Minn.)—seeks to slap U.S. sanctions on the organization’s political center in Egypt […]
