Rand Paul Shows How It's Done

Why can't Republicans answer questions like this all the time? Paul does not wither in the spotlight, he counterattacks. He rightfully questions MSNBC's honor and integrity. Long overdue.

Barney Frank Admits Obama Administration "Just Lied To People"

Not sure what HuffPO is up to. They published a brief article stating that Barney Frank was appalled at the Obama Administration's repeated lies about the Affordable Care Act. The article is followed by a slide show featuring thirteen lies and distortions about Obamacare.

In HuffPo World, such things as the existence of death panels. the job-killing effects of The ACA as well as its exorbitant costs are all GOP fabrications. It is surprising that they would feature an article about Barney Frank wherein he states the obvious: the Obama Administration lied repeatedly about th nightmare that is Obamacare. We can only speculate at their motives for doing so.

Possibly, they knew Frank's comments would break anyway so they could perform a preemptive spin. Get the hayseeds to read the blurb and then do the old Amway social bait and switch and hammer them with a slide show that will curb their stupidity forever. Just speculation.

See for yourself:

"The rollout was so bad, and I was appalled -- I don't understand how the president could have sat there and not been checking on that on a weekly basis," Frank told HuffPost during a July interview. "But frankly, he should never have said as much as he did, that if you like your current health care plan, you can keep it. That wasn't true. And you shouldn't lie to people. And they just lied to people."

He bled out through his eyes

Posted simply in the interest of gratuitous gore. Not really. If the sight of dead people offends you don't view it but there is far more gruesome viewing on the evening news. It's the thought of a person having his eyes pecked out before he died that makes the video gory not the graphics.

Trey Gowdy demolishes two expert witnesses

Professor Charles Tiefer of the University of Baltimore was a Democratic witness brought in to refute the GOP claim that a special prosecutor was needed in the IRS scandal. He should have stayed home. Congressman Trey Gowdy who practiced rather than taught law took Tiefer apart. Gowdy has to be on everyone's short list for Veep.

Here Gowdy mows down another "expert witness".

Thirty Years From Now Will We Still Be Guessing About The Identity Of Barack Obama?

So Rush Limbaugh started off the week touting Matthew Continetti's ( "Frozen in The Cold War."  For now, let us set aside the gist of Continetti's article that Barack Obama is an Anti Anti Communist. The bigger issue is that Barack Obama is still an unvetted president and we are still asking the world, "Who is this guy?"

An industry has sprung up to determine the motives and mental processes of our 44th president. The market leader so far has been the Anti Colonialism meme advanced by Dinesh D'Souza. A close second would be the Gilbert/Kengor/ John Drew variations on the Red Diaper Baby theme. Running behind the leaders are the Closet Jihadist and 60's Radical (Don't ask me what makes that decade's radicals better or worse than the 50's Rosenbergs or the 70's Ayers and Dohrns) Theories. All of these notions are speculative. Truth be, we still have no idea who this guy is.

So let's throw Anti Anti Communist into the mix.This is Mark Lane taking on the Warren Report except that in the case of the Kennedy Assassination, an official record of events actually existed. With the life of Barack Obama we are expected to do our own research. Thus, there will always be a Continetti attempting to fill the vacuum.

Who is this mysterious community organizer and who are his influences? I suspect we will be asking those questions for the rest of our lives.

How do these people keep their jobs?

Suppose you operate a nursing home and are worried about the safety of the patients and your employees and, oh yes, their families? What can you do to protect your charges from violent crime but failing that at least make yourself feel better? You could contact your local dim witted police chief and stage an active shooter training exercise but for added realism don't bother to tell your employees. The next thing you know you, the chief of police, and one of his brilliant officers find yourselves being sued for infliction of emotional and mental distress just because the officer took an employee hostage.
From 9NEWS in Denver:
Michelle Meeker is suing the Carbondale police chief and an officer. Her employer, the Heritage Park Care Center, where the exercise occurred October 13, 2013, is also listed in the complaint.
In a complaint received by 9NEWS Tuesday, Meeker claims she was taken hostage by a man with a gun while at work at the assisted living center in Carbondale. Meeker says the gunman held her against her will while she begged for her life.
According to the complaint, what she did not know at the time was that the man with the gun was a Carbondale police officer, and it was all a part of an active shooter drill that was taking place.
What an ingrate! Heritage Park Care Center issued this public statement:
Because the safety of the residents, associates and their families at Heritage Park Care Center is our top priority, we conduct routine safety drills to prepare for any type of situation we might face. Recently, we conducted an armed intruder drill at our facility with the assistance of a trained, reputable safety consulting group. Local police had also been notified in advance and were on site during the drill. Unfortunately, the training exercise alarmed some at our facility. We have reassured everyone that the situation was safe and controlled. Heritage Park Care Center is not only committed to providing quality care to those in our community, but to also keeping our residents and associates safe. We are proud to be a member of this community, and we pledge to continue our quest for excellence.
Heroic! But probably the residents wish the facility could content itself with just keeping clean linen on the beds and the bed pans emptied.

Abolish Homeland Security!

Thank you so much, George Bush! Thank you, GOP! Homeland Security is unwilling or unable to  catch terrorist. The Shoe Bomber, The Underwear Bomber, The Times Square Bomber were done in by their own ineptitude. The Boston Marathon Bombers failed to make a strong case for DHS funding. From its very onset DHS has been a model of waste, fraud and abuse.

DHS might be helpless against terrorists and illegal alien welfare cheats but they can hassle average citizens as well as any other government agency. DHS is test-flying new confiscatory powers by seizing vehicles of private citizens that might, maybe, possibly violate EPA emission standards.

DHS is an ongoing disasaer. Let us defund it and sow salt in the soil where their offices once stood.

Will Michael Moore Still Be A One Tenth Of A One Percenter Post Divorce?

How do you divide nine homes by two? Maybe the 10,000 square foot mansion will count as two and they can each get five homes. Then again, the value of the pricey Manhattan property would equal ten to one hundred houses, possibly more, depending on what part of the country we are comparing it to. puts the wealth of Moore and his wife Kathy Glynn at $50 million. So even divided by two, the filmmaker will keep his membership in the economic elite. Occupy that.
