Could Democrats Gain Senate Seats This Fall?
Posted on Thursday, April 17, 2014 11:31:20 AM by Kenny
It’s a virtual article of faith among election analysts that Republicans will gain Senate seats in the 2014 midterms. I tend to agree with that assessment, and strongly so. In fact, like other forecasters such as Alan Abramowitz and Nate Silver, I think Republicans have the edge in the battle to take control of the upper chamber this November.
And They Call It … Success!

Obamacare Shows America Suffers From A President Dangerously Disconnected From Reality
Posted on Friday, April 04, 2014 12:32:49 PM by Jim Robinson
The population of the U.S. is 314 million. On the day Obamacare was passed, the estimate of the uninsured was 60 million. So in this context, the supposed 7 million Americans signed up for insurance on the Obamacare Exchanges, even if that is a valid number, and all of those have actually started paying premiums, both of which are highly dubious, does not mean any significant success for Obamacare.

President Obama is telling immigrant families that those who are here legally are eligible for Obamacare, and none of them need to worry because no health-care information will be shared with immigration officials.
It’s the sort of breakdown in communication between federal agencies that led to one of the greatest calamities in American history, the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks, said Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Calif. Obama made the statement last week in a forum with prominent Hispanic media outlets, sponsored by the likes of Univision and Telemundo.

Today Obama said he was sorry to the people that had their insurance policy’s cancelled. He did not say I’m sorry for misleading the American people. He did not say I’m sorry because I lied. He did not say I’m sorry for forcing this plan down our throats by not allowing a bipartisan conversation.

That the bulk of Americans (especially those 4+ million whose insurance policies have recently been cancelled as a result of the ACA) have to pay more for healthcare as a result of Obamacare, is now largely accepted and well-known.
But did you know that the cost of Obamacare is slowly metastasizing to other places? Such as your restaurant bill.

Sen. Ted Cruz says he agrees with his critic Thomas Sowell, who says he should pick his battles. He doesn’t, however, agree on which battles.
The latest snake that Obama is trying to drop on the island is a minimum wage hike. A minimum wage hike sounds like a great idea to a progressive professor who, like Marie Antoinette, wonders why the poor can’t just eat cake during a bread shortage. If the poor aren’t making enough money, just raise their salaries. If their salaries go up, they’ll have more money and the government will be able to spend more money creating jobs that it can then tax using a magic perpetual motion machine.

Sowell: Cruz Control?
Posted on Tuesday, February 18, 2014 3:32:13 PM by jazusamo
Freshman Senator Ted Cruz says many things that need to be said and says them well. Moreover, some of these things are what many, if not most, Americans believe wholeheartedly. Yet we need to remember that the same was true of another freshman Senator, just a relatively few years ago, who parlayed his ability to say things that resonated with the voters into two terms in the White House.
Who would disagree that if you want your doctor, you should be able to keep your doctor? Who would disagree with the idea of a more transparent administration in Washington, or a President of the United States being a uniter instead of a divider?
There are many things like this that freshman Senator Barack Obama said that the overwhelming majority of Americans — whether liberal or conservative — would agree with. The only problem is that what he has actually done as President has repeatedly turned out to be the direct opposite of what he said as a candidate.
Senator Ted Cruz has not yet reached the point where he can make policy, rather than just make political trouble.
But there are already disquieting signs that he is looking out for Ted Cruz — even if that sets back the causes he claims to be serving.
Those causes are not being served when Senator Cruz undermines the election chances of the only political party that has any chance of undoing the disasters that Barack Obama has already inflicted on the nation — and forestalling new disasters that are visible on the horizon.

In doing so, he also agreed to Article Two, Clause Five of the Constitution which states that the President must “faithfully execute the laws of the land”.
The word “faithfully” in that statement is clearly defined by Webster’s Dictionary as “strict or thorough performance of one’s duty.” Faithfully does not mean that the President can arbitrarily execute the laws of the land. Nor, does it say he can ignore those parts of the Constitution he doesn’t like.

Senator Mike Lee is right. On Sunday, February 16, 2014, in an excerpted piece from “The Hill”, the freshman senator from Utah was quoted as saying Obama is creating a “government of one” by ignoring the United States Constitution.
You remember the United States Constitution – the foundation for all the laws enacted and in force in our beloved country – don’t you? Actually what I should have asked is if you ever really knew that all of our laws that have been established were the basis that is the reinforcement of the oaths of office to which all of our elected and appointed servants of the people have sworn their allegiance before accepting such offices.

In 2009, Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC) apologized profusely to the White House for shouting, “You lie!” as President Barack Obama told Congress that Obamacare would not cover illegal immigrants. Now it would appear that the White House owes Wilson an apology, as Covered California–the flagship of state Obamacare exchanges–is recruiting illegal (“undocumented”) immigrants to sign up for the program, regardless of their eligibility.

One year after committing himself and his speakership to reducing the federal budget deficit, Rep. John A. Boehner (R.-Ohio) delivered to President Barack Obama and the Democrats a one-year hall pass that will suspend the debt ceiling until 2015.
The vote was 221 to 201 with 28 Republicans, like Boehner and his merry band of hacks, voting alongside their BFF’s across the aisle.
Members of the House GOP leadership had set the table for a small fight with the Democrats by tying the increase in the debt ceiling to the restoration of cuts in military pensions—hardly the stuff of heroic last stands. But, if anything, it was a rejection of the cuts called for and defended by the Republican leadership, specifically, House Budget Chairman Paul D. Ryan (R.-Wis.).

Obamacare was sold to the American people as a humanitarian attempt to provide health insurance to the poor and to individuals with a pre-existing medical condition who had been denied coverage. If you were not poor,
did not have a pre-existing condition, and already had health insurance and were satisfied with its coverage and rates, you were repeatedly assured that you could keep your plan and doctors. Right.
Americans are getting locked down as the screws are tightening and soon all the pieces needed for our subjugation are being firmly put into place. I have the globalist playbook, it is publicly available for anyone who wants to pay attention.

America has arrived at a point at which it has never been in its 226 years of existence since the Constitution became effective in 1788.

The confounding statement by Obama’s spokesman regarding whether Americans under ObamaCare will choose to work is nothing short of appalling and nonsensical. Certainly, of all the myriad attacks Obama has launched against Americans, this may be the most fundamental and perverse. For what kind of a person, let alone leader, tries to persuade others that work is an option?

As the Republican party continues to abandon the American people by morphing into a far-left wing of the Democrat Party on issues like immigration, many important questions about illegals are not being asked, to the potential detriment of American citizens.
For example, conventional wisdom(?) is that there are 11 million illegals in America. That number has been bandied about for years, with little or no substantiation.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) thinks that the House GOP leadership’s renewed push this week to grant amnesty to illegal aliens would destroy the Republican Party’s chances at retaking the Senate in 2014. Cruz questioned how establishment Republicans unilaterally caving to Democrats on everything from the farm bill to the budget to the debt ceiling and more could think amnesty is a good idea at this time.
\”Right now, Republican leadership in both chambers is aggressively urging members to stand down on virtually every front: on the continuing resolution, on the budget, on the farm bill, on the debt ceiling,” Cruz said in a statement provided exclusively to Breitbart News on Thursday.
