Rush Caller

A caller just proposed, what I think is a really good idea.

The House send the bill back to the Senate and says, "Ok, we'll give you Obamacare. BUT...nobody gets exemptions. Not the unions, not Congress, not any of Obama's friends. No one."

This put the Rats on the defensive, as they try to explain why they'll shutdown the govt. rather than take away obamacare exemptions for a privileged few.

Excellent.

Ted Cruz now leads GOP presidential pack: poll

A-OK by me.

Fresh off his 21-hour filibuster against Obamacare funding, a new poll shows that Sen. Ted Cruz has leapfrogged past his potential rivals for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination and that GOP primary voters trust him more than their party leaders on Capitol Hill.

Public Policy Polling survey found that 20 percent of those surveyed supported Mr. Cruz, Texas Republican, while 17 percent supposed Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky, 14 percent supported New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and 11 percent supported former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush.

Boehner: No Funding Bill Without 1-Year Obamacare Delay

Showing some spine?
Speaker John Boehner said Thursday the GOP-controlled House will not accept a temporary spending bill from the Democratic Senate if it is shorn clean of a tea party plan to "defund Obamacare."

don't see that happening," Boehner told reporters.

the same time, the Ohio Republican said House GOP leaders would unveil legislation to lift the government's borrowing cap, but only if the new health care law is delayed for a year. He defended that measure's relatively modest spending cuts even as some rank-and-file conservatives pressed for more.

President Obama's best friend from high school 'brutally beat and raped woman in her apartment'

Birds of a feather...

President Obama's high school best friend, who at one time was 'like a brother' to him, has been accused of brutally raping and beating a woman, it emerged today.

Keith Kiyoshi Kakugawa, 54, from Eureka, California, was arrested at his home last Sunday and booked into Humboldt County Jail on suspicion of false imprisonment, sexual penetration by force, oral copulation by force and battery.

The arrest is the latest in a long list of convictions for Kakugawa, who was close friends with the President when they both attended Panahou High School.

Stands to reason as Obama's been raping this country for going on 5 years.

Rand Paul wants Chief Justice Roberts all federal workers to enroll in Obamacare

Absolutely right. If one has to suffer this train wreck, ALL must.

Arguing federal workers should not get special treatment, Rand Paul says he does not want taxpayers subsidizing the personal health-care plans of any federal employee — including Chief Justice John Roberts — anymore.

With some in Congress arguing lawmakers and their staff should not get subsidies to cover their health insurance as President Obama’s health-care law goes into effect, the Republican senator from Kentucky told The Daily Caller on Sunday that he’s going to start pushing a constitutional amendment that goes even further. Paul’s proposal — outlawing any special exemptions for government employees — would mean all federal workers would have to purchase health insurance on the new Obamacare exchanges instead of getting taxpayer-funded subsidies. Some critics say those subsidies amount to special treatment. The Obamacare health insurance exchange opens Oct 1.

Harvard study shows gun control doesn't save Lives

No surprise to those of us who have been p[aying attention.

Harvard Journal of Law and Public Policy has just released a study of the relative effects of stringent gun laws. They found that a country like Luxenbourg, which bans all guns has a murder rate that is 9 times higher than Germany, where there are 30,000 guns per 100,000 people. They also cited a study by the U.S.National Academy of Sciences, which studied 253 journal articles, 99 books, 43 government publications, and it failed to find one gun control initiative that worked.

In fact, in many cases it found that violence is very often lower, where guns are more readily available. The report points to a myth that guns are more easily obtained in the United States than in Europe. That is factually incorrect.

Gay activist planned to shoot first, rub Chick-fil-A sandwiches in his victims’ faces later

Don't you just love starting the weekend on a happy note.

WASHINGTON - A Virginia man who had planned to shoot people at a conservative Washington lobbying group and then rub Chick-fil-A sandwiches in his victims’ faces was sentenced to 25 years in prison on Thursday.

The man, 29-year-old Floyd Corkins II, in August last year attempted to carry into the Family Research Center a 9-millimeter handgun, two spare ammunition magazines and a backpack containing 15 day-old chicken sandwiches from the fast-food chain whose president was known for having voiced opposition to gay marriage.

Employment gap between rich, poor widest on record

Precisely the opposite of what Obama said he would accomplish.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The gap in employment rates between America's highest- and lowest-income families has stretched to its widest levels since officials began tracking the data a decade ago, according to an analysis of government data conducted for The Associated Press.

Rates of unemployment for the lowest-income families - those earning less than $20,000 - have topped 21 percent, nearly matching the rate for all workers during the 1930s Great Depression.

U.S. households with income of more than $150,000 a year have an unemployment rate of 3.2 percent, a level traditionally defined as full employment. At the same time, middle-income workers are increasingly pushed into lower-wage jobs. Many of them in turn are displacing lower-skilled, low-income workers, who become unemployed or are forced to work fewer hours, the analysis shows.

Retail sales fall short in August, temper Fed speculation

This economy can be explained in just one word.....TEPID.

U.S. retail sales rose less than expected in August even as demand increased for automobiles and other big-ticket items, the latest sign that economic growth slowed in the third quarter.

The Commerce Department said on Friday retail sales increased 0.2 percent last month as Americans bought automobiles, furniture and electronics and appliances.

However, they cut back on clothing, building materials and sporting goods.

Colorado voters oust Democratic state senators over gun control

Hopefully this is a preview of coming attractions across the country

(Reuters) - Colorado voters ousted two Democratic lawmakers, including the state senate president, in a historic recall vote on Tuesday over their support for tougher gun control laws, handing a major victory to gun rights supporters.

The recall races, the first in Colorado history, are at the epicenter of the national fight over gun control in the aftermath of a series of mass shootings last year, and were seen as a test of the sway of lobbyists on both sides of the debate.

State Senate President John Morse, who helped lead efforts in the state legislature to ban ammunition magazines with more than 15 rounds and to require background checks for private gun sales and transfers, said he had "absolutely no regrets" about pushing the gun-control measures.

U.S. Admits No Imminent Threat from Syria, No Clear Evidence Assad Ordered Chemical Weapons Attack

All the rhetoric, bluster and speechifying in the world won't change the fact that they simply don't have the evidence.
Obama’s top aide says the administration lacks “irrefutable, beyond-a-reasonable-doubt evidence” that skeptical Americans, including lawmakers who will start voting on military action this week, are seeking. In an interview Sunday in Damascus, Assad told American journalist Charlie Rose there is no conclusive evidence about who is to blame for the chemical weapons attacks and again suggested the rebels were responsible. Rose said Assad also warned him previous U.S. military efforts in the region have proved disastrous.

August Jobs Report: 169,000 Jobs Added

This report is the most massaged, contrived and manipulated POS in the history of government reporting.

Job growth in the U.S. is slowing, the Labor Department confirmed today, reporting that 169,000 jobs were added in August as unemployment fell to 7.3 percent.

Economists were expecting a gain of 180,000 jobs, according to a Bloomberg survey. They expected unemployment to stay at 7.4 percent.

Last month, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported the economy added 162,000 jobs in July. The bureau today revised that figure downward to 104,000 and it lowered the June figure to 172,000 from 188,000.

SUSPENDED: Michigan State removes liberal professor who went on anti-Republican tirade

Well, you could knock me over with a feather...

Michigan State administrators have suspended Prof. William Penn for the remainder of the semester, after he was caught on video going on an anti-Republican tirade on the very first day of his literature class.

In an email to students Thursday morning, Dean Karen Wurst of the College of Arts & Letters, cited his “inappropriate, disrespectful and offensive” comments.

“On Aug. 29, during your Literatures, Cultures, Identities course, Professor William Penn made comments he has acknowledged were inappropriate, disrespectful and offensive and may have negatively affected the learning environment,” she wrote. “Once MSU was made aware of the situation the Office of the Provost immediately began a review.”

“As a result, Penn’s duties have been reassigned, and he will not be teaching this semester,” she added. “A new instructor is being assigned to your course.”

Rebuffing Obama, McCain a No-Vote on Syria: Courtship by the president comes up short

Now this surprises me.

Sen. John McCain pulled his support Wednesday for the Senate resolution authorizing limited strikes in Syria, a blow to President Barack Obama’s campaign to get congressional approval for military action in the war-torn country.

McCain, the Arizona Republican and Obama’s 2008 White House rival, has long been a strong advocate for intervention in Syria’s civil war, and Obama doggedly courted McCain’s support for the measure authorizing military force, including during a meeting at the White House on Monday. But McCain said the limited actions that would be authorized by the resolution don’t go far enough in responding to Syrian leader Bashar Assad’s alleged use of chemical weapons last month.

Wonder how long before lap dog Lindsey does an about face.

DOJ Sues Louisiana to Stop School Voucher Program Helping Black Students

Short sighted, myopic imbeciles.

Last week, Eric Holder’s Department of Justice, fresh off its controversial decision to sue the state of Texas of its voter identification law, sued the state of Louisiana to block its school voucher program largely designed to help minority children. The DOJ sued to stop 34 school district from giving out private-school vouchers, claiming that such vouchers slowed the “desegregation progress.”

A full 90% of the children who benefit from the voucher program are black. The remaining 10% came from 22 school districts under desegregation orders handed down five decades ago, which prompted the DOJ to state, “the voucher recipients were in the racial minority at the public school they attended before receiving the voucher.” As the Wall Street Journal pointed out, “Justice is claiming that the voucher program may be illegal because minority kids made their failing public schools more white by leaving those schools to go to better private schools.” As black kids go to better schools, the schools left behind become less integrated, the logic goes. So keep those black kids in those failing schools.

Typically, vouchers enhance integration by allowing educational opportunities to children who have not had them before. But that’s not the point. The point is that teachers unions lose leverage when kids opt out of their failing school systems. And Eric Holder’s DOJ will do anything to help their union allies out.

Or are they just attempting to keep them on the plantation? An educated Black doesn't neccessarily vote Democrat.

Rangel: 'Of course it's embarrassing'

If anyone is an expert on "embarrassing" behavior it's Charlie Rangel.

Rep. Charles Rangel (D-N.Y.) on Monday said "of course it's embarrassing" that President Obama warned Syria of a red line for using chemical weapons but then didn't move forward immediately with a military strike.

Rangel, who opposes a military strike against Syria, also said Secretary of State John Kerry must be even more embarrassed after making an aggressive speech calling for a military strike on Friday, and then seeing Obama delay it to ask Congress for authorization a day later.

Speaking on MSNBC, Rangel said "I love Obama" and you'll "never find a truer Democrat than me."

But he said the idea that a president could draw a red line and push the nation into war was "unheard of.
