Chelsea Clinton’s Baby Versus Rosemary’s Babies

Chelsea’s baby Charlotte is already on the job. The little babe is already hard at work to help her memaw on her mother’s side.

What has the little one done? Well, like a brilliant comic, like a masterful symphonic conductor, it’s all in the timing. Little Charlotte arrived just in time.

Consider, the latest polls that show Obama Dimocrats about to lose badly this November. Consider the latest Barack Obama “blame the staff” performance against the nation’s intelligence services. Consider the beheadings in the middle east and the beheading in Oklahoma which are all the product of brazen terrorists. Consider the dried rose that is the “War on Women” tactic and the rise of the “security moms”. Consider too all the worldwide Hell breaking loose, which now includes Hong Kong. Consider all that and the consequences for the November 2014 elections which are now a teensy-weensy bit more than a month away (even as early voting in Iowa has started and early voting starts in some other states this very week). Would you want to be tied to this mess?

That, in short, has been the predicament Hillary Clinton has found herself in. A lot of kooks on the left have been on full whine lately that Hillary is not doing much to help Obama Dimocrats this election cycle. And for once the Kooks are correct.

Aside from some measured assistance to those that supported Hillary in 2008 Bill and Hillary have not exactly been tearing up the runways for this November’s elections. Bill and Hillary, Hillary and Bill, are paying political debts and doing some pro forma events. But they are certainly not engaged in a whirlwind tour for Dims in which they would only twist themselves into a loser narrative.

That was the dream. The dream of those that stabbed Hillary in the back and called Bill Clinton a “racist” in 2008 was that popular Bill and popular Hill would carry their water up the hill in state after state in a series of ceaseless campaign events. After that the same vipers would not care if Hill and Bill rolled down the hill soaked from the pail of water they carried.

That is what Hillary and Bill were supposed to do. Hillary and Bill were supposed to stop the disaster by covering for Barack H. Obama. But Hillary and Bill must not take the blame from the coming disaster authored and starring Barack H. Obama. Why should they?

Now the leftist kooks are all atwitter and noisy and angry that Bill and Hill and Hill and Bill find themselves otherwise occupied. Barack Obama is as welcome in many states as Ebola at a sauna. Bill and Hill are popular but where are they?

Now, little Charlotte has come along and Hillary and Bill have a perfect excuse to do as little as possible this October as early voting hits full stride across the nation. It’s not like Hillary is about to freeze-frame herself as Whistler’s Mother. Both Bill and Hill will do some events to keep the yapping dogs at bay but mostly they now can say “the baby”. Ah, “the baby”. “Sorry, we’re busy, you see…uh… the baby….

Now, for a few laughs, let’s demonstrate some of what we mean. We privately received a link to a pro-Obama forum called ThePeoplesView.

The discussion of the crazy peoples view featured comrades fresh from the climate change march in New York and assorted OFA kooks. These kooks indulged themselves with attacks against Hillary Clinton and in praise of Elizabeth Warren.

There was one person, who appropriately self-identifies as “Insipid”, who began by attacking good ol’ Big Pink. Yup, our cute pink website. Well, this Insipid person claimed to have been an Hillary Clinton supporter in 2008. “Insipid” knowing the full facts about Baracko back in 2008 immediately ignored the facts about Barack H. Obama and his race-baiting misogynistic campaign and “HAPPILY” went whole hog for bam-bam.

After a bit of Hillary bashing from the supposed supporter and then claims that there are no differences between Hillary and Baracko “Insipid” got testy with the other kooks. It then got ugly. You will have to read the full exchange for the full laughs and to observe what happens when even the slightest kind words amidst a lot of bashing of Hillary will elicit from the Barack Obama crowd. Oh, and don’t miss the back and forth about Hillary not doing much during this 2014 election. “Insipid” argues Hillary is all out for Dims but the truth is Hillary is mostly all out of this election cycle. Smart lady.

Rosemary’s Babies:



The insipid and the clueless cult of Barack Obama witnessed at that comedy site are not alone. Those brainiacs are not even the most dangerous. Consider the Rosemary’s Babies a.k.a. Occupy Wall Street. Remember them?

Occupy Wall Street posed as an egalitarian group of pure democracy advocates who made decisions from the ground up, direct democracy. Remember how they used to say they had no leaders? Ha! We mocked them repeatedly at the time. Occupy Wall Street was a phony Obama re-election operation disguised as a populist movement. Once the election was over and the attacks on Wall Street Mitt Romney no longer needed Occupy Wall Street descended into an even bigger joke.

Now Occupy Wall Street is become even more ridiculous. Occupy the courts:

The People Who Organized Occupy Wall Street Are Now Suing Each Other

The movement descends into litigation. “We can either go and beat him up or we can go to court.” [snip]

WASHINGTON — Activists who organized the dormant Occupy Wall Street movement are suing another activist for control of the main Twitter account, and one of the plaintiffs says there was no other option but to turn to litigation to solve the dispute.

The conflict centers around @OccupyWallStNYC, one of the main Twitter feeds that distributed information during the movement’s heyday in 2011. The OWS Media Group filed a lawsuit against organizer Justin Wedes on Wednesday, which is also the third anniversary of the beginning of Occupy Wall Street. The group, led by activist Marisa Holmes, is seeking control of the Twitter account as well as $500,000 in damages.

The Twitter account, which used to be shared among several activists, is now under the control of Wedes, who explained his decision to take over the Twitter feed in a blog post in August:

In the kingdom of the blind kooks the one-eyed kook is king. So much for “no leaders”.

The kook kingdom is now underground and in full JournoList mode. You do remember JournoList right? It was the listserv of “impartial” journalists that protected Barack Obama in 2008 and attacked Hillary Clinton and John McCain and especially Sarah Palin.

The Hill has exposed the new JournoList:

Left blasts Clinton in secret emails

Emails sent by liberal activists and obtained by The Hill reveal significant dissatisfaction with Hillary Clinton, the front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2016.

The critical messages about the former first lady show that she has a long way to go to assuage skepticism from influential voices on the left.

The Hill reviewed hundreds of emails from a progressive members only Google group called the “Gamechanger Salon,” a forum where nearly 1,500 activists, strategists and journalists debate issues and craft messaging campaigns.

The group includes prominent Democrats, Sierra Club officials, journalists who work for The Huffington Post and The Nation magazine, senior union representatives, leaders at the Progressive Change Campaign Committee and the president of NARAL.

Over a thousand kooks all out to protect Barack Obama and attack anyone who mocks the ONE. It’s 2008 all over again.

We’ve been warning Hillary Clinton 2016 about the plans of the Totalitarian Kook Left for a long while. Early last year we stated clearly why the totalitarian kook left will have to attack Hillary Clinton 2016.

On January 2013 we described the future for the totalitarian kook left so clearly it was as if we were Life magazine covering the year 1945:

Barack Obama and his minions will do everything in their power to destroy Hillary Clinton and make sure she does not get the nomination in 2016 let alone the presidency.

There is no way that the crazed Obama left is going to go back to the hated paradigm of clinton-bush-clinton-bush interrupted by Obama for clinton-bush years. The crazed left minions might think they love Hillary Clinton now, but wait until their overlords decide they will oppose Hillary and the minions will fall back into the Hillary hate line.

The crazed Obama left is not going to have Hillary Clinton, THE CLINTONS, be the culmination of their revolution by having Hillary inherit the mantle of Obama. The left might be crazed but it is not stupid and the leadership of the totalitarian Obama left is not about to surrender its power to Hillary and Bill and Terry and the hated DLC.

That was our prediction. That is the past. This is the present and the future brought forth from the past.

The President of NARAL is part of this secret smear campaign. In 2008 NARAL endorsed John Edwards for president in 2008. NARAL endorsed Barack Obama once Edwards was out. NARAL endorse a pro-choice woman for president? NEVER. Now NARAL, often helped by Hillary Clinton, is part of a secret group to smear Hillary. You better watch your back and learn Hillary.

Fake journalists actively conspire to promote an agenda? That could never happen again, right? JournoList was only a one campaign aberration, right? The “overlords” of the totalitarian left decided that Hillary Clinton 2016 must go:

Clinton’s too much of a hawk, too cozy with Wall Street, hasn’t spoken out enough on climate change, and will be subject to personal questions and criticisms, members of the group stated in the emails.

The existence of the group was reported earlier this year by the conservative outlet MediaTrackers.org, but this is the first time the emails have become public.

“[A] Clinton presidency undos [sic] all our progress and returns the financial interests to even more prominence than they currently have,” Melissa Byrne, an activist with the Occupy Wall Street movement, said in a November 2013 email.

Melissa knows when she is about to be made more extinct that she already is. All her comrades will occupy the same tombs. The Kooks know we are right and they are slated for a beheading, ISIS/Oklahoma style:

The progressives expressed an appetite for an alternative to Clinton to teach her — and those from the centrist wing of the party — a lesson.

Liberal Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) has repeatedly said she won’t run for president, but some on the left aren’t convinced.

The establishment Dems need to be punished, and the best way for that to happen is for Warren to beat Hillary in the primary on a populist message,” Carl Gibson, a progressive activist and writer for Occupy.com, wrote in one email.

Even though months have passed since the emails were sent, the sentiment remains.

It’s almost like a 2008 reunion. Anyone remember Mike Lux? He’s the kook that started OpenLeft because other anti-Hillary sites were too tame. We used to mock OpenLeft as NothingLeft and now the nothing left is back:

Mike Lux, a prominent strategist and an active member of the group, told The Hill that the concerns haven’t changed and operatives “are probably more worried at this point rather than less.”

The hate is strong in this troll.

As MediaTrackers.org has written it is not just Occupy Wall Street totalitarians on Gamechanger Salon. CNN, Reuters and other Big Media contributors participate in these secret cabals of corrupt commentators who wish to usurp the people’s political process with their schemes and smears.

MediaTrackers.org has done America and the political process a service in pointing out these secret polluters of our political discourse.

The totalitarian kook left is angry and does not want to let go of their grip on a major political party:

Conversations with a half-dozen of the members of Gamechanger Salon this week confirm that the angst within parts of the progressive movement has only grown.

“There’s good reason to believe the discontent remains the same,” Neil Sroka, spokesman for Democracy for America and another group member, told The Hill.

Much of the exasperation with Clinton hinged on the former New York senator’s vote for the Iraq War, which is still toxic for many progressives. Clinton has since said her vote was a mistake.

Charles Lenchner, a progressive operative and executive director of Organizing 2.0, said Clinton — and anyone else who voted for the Iraq War — is “tainted.”

“And personally, I would like to see a Democratic Party where folks who enabled George Bush to drag the country into a permanent war are punished at the ballot box,” he said in an interview.

Ryan Clayton, a left-leaning commentator and strategist, wrote in a July 2013 email, “The more Progressives I talk to, the more people tell me that they’ll never forgive her for voting for the Iraq War… and won’t even vote for her in the general.”

Another area of irritation is the economic policies instituted by her husband, former President Clinton, that some progressives say contributed to the financial collapse. Lux, a former Clinton administration aide, wrote in an email that while he didn’t think she was involved in crafting economic policy as first lady, he’s concerned about her relationship with Wall Street.

I also came to know how close she was to the pro-Wall Street forces inside the administration and out, and the downsides on foreign policy are all very real. So I will hesitate for a long time before jumping into her campaign,” Lux wrote in a group email.

Byrne, the Occupy activist, later declared in an email this year: “I have little respect for decisions Sec. Clinton has made in her career and I have a different value set from her.”

One of Clinton’s biggest critics among the group is Guy Saperstein, a major Democratic donor and part owner of the Oakland Athletics baseball team.

In emails, Saperstein called a report out in December of last year that Clinton offered a “reassuring” message to Goldman Sachs executives “horrific,” and slammed her for “ducking a lot of issues, like the Keystone pipeline.”

He also raised questions about her leadership at the State Department and referenced “the type of intimidation the Clintons want to quietly promote [in the velvet glove, of course].”

Saperstein expressed concerns that voters would begin to speculate over her personal life and relationship with her husband.

“None of that would be helpful to her candidacy,” he wrote.

It’s all there. The Hillary-Dillery-Dyke innuendo from Saperstein. The economic “values” arguments from Occupy Wall Street types who are busy fighting for dollars in the courts near Wall Street. And then there is the foolishness about the Iraq vote we answered years ago. And why voting against the AUMF would have been foolish we have also discussed back in 2007.

What is most comic about the Iraq vote and the left is the amnesia about others (Botox John Kerry for instance) who voted for the AUMF and those who supported a “yes” vote (um, Al Gore a favorite of the nothingleft).

What do these kooks really want? They want Hillary to bow down to them in the same way Barack Obama bows down to foreign despots.

In interviews and emails, members of the group expressed a near-universal concern — that still prevails — that if Clinton doesn’t take steps to appease the progressive wing of the party, it could be damaging to her chances in 2016.

Gibson wrote in an email, “another establishment pick from a political dynasty family will drive folks to the green party.”

Clayton suggested in an email from January of this year that without a more liberal alternative to Clinton, the party would splinter: “if we have no Progressive candidate with legitimate street cred about taking effective bold action to face the vital issues we’re confronting as a country today (which is pretty much Warren and … cricket, cricket…) in the race for Presidency, that means the abandonment of the Democratic Party by the reemerging and resurgent Left in America.” [snip]

They’ll either vote for the Green Party of just sit out. That’s a really big aspect of progressive voters’ strategy” to have their voices heard, he said.

Ha! They’re threatening to go PUMA! News to the crackpot left: your species of PUMA has long been extinct. They died off with Ralph Nader in 2000.

What the crackpot nothingleft will not accept is that it is over for them. Their golden calf, Barack Obama is nothing but political Ebola. Even the Republicans realize it.

After we have so long advocated for Hillary to denounce and attack Barack Obama because that is the way to victory – Republicans finally have come to the same conclusion:

Throughout the party’s infrastructure, Republicans say that linking Clinton with Obama, especially labeling her possible 2016 campaign as “Obama’s Third Term,” is the most potent attack. [snip]

“Hillary Clinton has a Barack Obama problem,” reads a lengthy research document that will go out to GOP pundits, strategists, conservative organizations and media members Tuesday. “No matter how many of her advisors whisper to reporters that she’s different from Barack Obama, Americans still know who she is: Barack Obama Part Deux.”

The document lists “10 Reasons Why Clinton 2016 = Obama’s Third Term,” including her praise for Obama as she left the State Department in 2013, her role in his first four years of foreign policy and Clinton’s support of Obamacare.

“Looking ahead to 2016, it’s critical that Obama’s 3rd Term is an element of the broader narrative defining Sec. Clinton, especially since she still has a higher approval than he does,” Tim Miller, the group’s director, said in a statement to CNN. [snip]

Therefore, it is something they plan to continue in the coming months and possibly years.

Democrats, too, are concerned about the attack line. In August, some close to Clinton told CNN that labeling the former secretary of state as the successor to Obama’s legacy was a possible problem.

Obama is political Ebola. Hillary should do as we suggested with even more force and vigor. That’s the way to win.

  1. Brilliant post, admin.

    I was making the same argument to my family members who are all curiously starting to sound like the JournoListers. Right after uncle fluffy won, they started the campaign to say 8 years of idiot-boy then 8 years of Hillary. In a twist only seen by Olympic high divers, now all I hear is their disappointment in Hillary for not having idiot-boy’s back more.

    I hate shallow politics. The reason we are in the situation that we are in is because enough sheeple were led to a trough full of poo and they ate because they were told that it was caviar. I hate shallow politics. That said, it seems more and more likely that women, AMERICAN WOMEN, hold the fate of the world in their hands. It is becoming as plain as day that political parties are going to mean absolutely nothing if Hillary is to win. She will win, plain and simply, on the backs (and on the votes) of a mathematically dominant plurality of women. Women, not constrained by party politics or by media superlatives or by the whims of stupid groups political groups. White women, Black women, Asian women, Hispanic women, Arab Women, Christian women, married women, single women, old women, young women, and every other brand and class of women in America that can vote. These progs are horrible people as a whole and they mean to do the world harm.

    Hillary needs to start calling out to the sisterhood of the traveling pantsuits in earnest. Of course not until AFTER some ample grandmommy time this fall/next spring!!

    Hillary 2016

    BTW – Here is that Charlie Rose interview with Willy Jeff. The whole interview is vintage President Clinton, but the question from Rose comes at the 13:01 mark. Again, there is a reason why he is the best pure politician since Roosevelt. Its no wonder he is so hated by the rethugs AND the Obacolytes. Both SOOOO wish he was fighting for them full time.

    3 Times Obama Administration Was Warned About ISIS Threat

    From article…..

    In his “60 Minutes” interview, President Obama seemed to put the blame on the intelligence community, saying, “I think they underestimated what had been taking place in Syria.” At the White House daily briefing, Press Secretary Josh Earnest cast the net quite a bit wider.

    “Everybody was surprised to see the rapid advance that ISIL was able to make from Syria across the Iraqi border,” said Earnest. “To be able to take over such large swaths of territory in Iraq did come as a surprise.”

    ISIS Trail of Terror

    But for nearly a year, senior officials in the U.S. government have been warning about the alarming rise of ISIS, or ISIL as the terrorist group is also known, and the inability of the Iraqi government to confront the threat.

    Obamacare: New messaging hurdles ahead

    The second Obamacare enrollment season could go negative — but not because of the health care law’s critics.

    Obama administration allies are weighing a focus on the loathsome individual mandate and the penalties that millions of Americans could face if they don’t get covered. It would be a calculated approach to prompt sign-ups, a task that the law’s supporters expect to be more difficult, or at least more complex, than in its coverage’s inaugural year.

    There are several challenges: The 2015 enrollment period is shorter, the most motivated Americans are probably already enrolled and the law is still politically unpopular. That means that even if HealthCare.gov works well — and it couldn’t be worse than last October’s meltdown — proponents are confronting a tough messaging landscape.

    “We believe enrollment this time around is going to be harder,” said Mike Perry, a partner at the health care research firm PerryUndem. “The low-hanging fruit is gone.” [snip]

    And with the fine increasing this year from $95 or 1 percent of a person’s income, whichever is greater, to $325 or 2 percent of a person’s income, the mandate is likely to be a bigger practical concern for consumers this fall. (Some individuals might not realize that they’ll be hit with a penalty for 2014 until they file their taxes next spring.) [snip]

    There’s another factor that could complicate matters: the calendar. The upcoming enrollment period is shorter than last year’s by three months, and it competes far more with the winter holidays, when people typically are busier and pay less attention to the news.

    Reaching them is “going to require more touches,” said Richard Onizuka, chief executive officer of the Washington state exchange. “It is going to be a challenge.”

    The “messaging” is a symptom. The disease is ObamaCare.

  4. Here’s a kerfluffle to add to the mix of this lovely new post:

    Reid, Daschle feud erupts
    By Bob Cusack and Jessica Taylor
    Simmering tensions between Harry Reid and Tom Daschle are erupting into an all-out feud.
    Daschle is expressing frustration with the Senate majority leader (D-Nev.) for refusing to endorse Rick Weiland, a former Daschle aide who is running for the South Dakota seat held by retiring Sen. Tim Johnson (D).
    …The dispute between Reid, who succeeded Daschle as the Senate’s top Democrat, is highly unusual. It is also rare for a Democratic leader to withhold support for a Democratic nominee in a Senate race….

  5. Thanks for the video, TheRock. I enjoy Charlie Rose and of course I think the world of WJC.

    A couple of things stand out in my mind aside from the twisted question, “If you were advising a presidential candidate…” — WJC says, “To be really good at this [politics], you have to like people, you have to like policy and you have to like the game… there’s a reason this is called a contact sport.”

    I have a hunch that HRC likes policy and maybe she likes the game too, but she doesn’t necessarily like people, which is WJC’s first “like”.

    She’s a good listener, which is a prerequisite both Rose and WJC talked about; but she always has a ready answer for everything that gets on some people’s nerves. They get the idea that she doesn’t listen.

  6. The “War On Women” tactic has failed to stop the Republican tide/wave. Now “security moms” force fake talk on war:

    http://www.politico.com/story/2014/09/2014-elections-senate-democrats-iraq-syria-111445.html

    Liberal doves run as war hawks

    Democrat Kay Hagan didn’t mince words about the Iraq War during her 2008 Senate campaign against Republican Elizabeth Dole.

    “We need to get out of Iraq in a responsible way,” Hagan declared in May of that year. “We need to elect leaders who don’t invade countries without planning and stay there without an end.

    Hagan is striking a different chord these days. Locked in a tough reelection battle, the first-term senator boasts that she’s more strongly supportive of airstrikes against Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant militants than her Republican challenger, Thom Tillis, and says she’s been pressing the Obama administration to arm Syrian rebels since early last year.

    “This is the time for us to come together, Democrats and Republicans, to confront the challenges that are facing our nation,” she said this month.

    A host of Democratic Senate hopefuls who rode anti-war sentiment into office in the past decade are running for reelection now as hawks, staking out hard-line positions on the latest upheaval in the Middle East. The candidates are quick to note the differences between then and now — a years-long military mission with boots on the ground versus the airstrikes President Barack Obama has launched in Iraq and Syria in the past month.

    But it’s also true that that no one wants to get tagged as soft on terror in a conservative-tilted election year that’s seen foreign policy jump unexpectedly to the fore.

    Take Bruce Braley, the Democratic Senate candidate in Iowa. He picked up a Republican-held House seat largely on the strength of his opposition to the war in Iraq. He backed cutting off funding for military operations and spoke out against the surge.

    When his opponent warned at a 2006 debate of chaos if the U.S. cut and ran, Braley responded: “Chaos already is ensuing in Iraq.”

    Just last August, Braley demanded Obama get congressional authorization before taking any military action in Syria.

    Now Braley is running against military veteran Joni Ernst in one of the most contested Senate races in the country.

    “ISIS is a threat that must be stopped,” Braley said during a debate Sunday. “Anytime American citizens are attacked by a terrorist group, they need to be brought to justice or to the grave.”

    He even said he voted to give the president limited authority “to begin strikes against those in Syria and Iraq.” In fact, the resolution that passed Congress two weeks ago was to arm Syrian rebels. Braley’s campaign defended his comment by drawing a distinction between “strikes” and “airstrikes,” saying he was actually referring to the arming of Syrian rebels to fight militants.

    Only one vulnerable Senate Democrat voted against that resolution to arm the rebels: Alaska Sen. Mark Begich, who warned that the weapons could fall into the wrong hands.

    Every other Democrat facing a viable challenger, including Jeff Merkley in deep-blue Oregon and Al Franken in Minnesota, voted with the 78-member majority. It’s a remarkable turn considering how outspoken each was about bringing the troops home from the Middle East during the 2008 campaign. [snip]

    Shaheen has traversed the map, so to speak, on military action in the Middle East.

    When she ran unsuccessfully for the Senate a year after the Sept. 11 attacks, she said at a debate: “I’ll stand with President Bush on national security, the war on terrorism and to disarm Saddam Hussein.”

    In a 2008 rematch against then-Sen. John Sununu, after the war had gone south, Shaheen vowed to fight to bring the troops home.

    “I would vote to authorize military action if the U.S. or any of its treaty partners are attacked militarily, and to prevent an imminent attack,” she said on a 2008 questionnaire. But “I oppose the Bush doctrine of preemption because it implies that the United States will use preemption as a first option, rather than a last resort.”

    Shaheen’s campaign said there is nothing inconsistent about her past comments. “Scott Brown is peddling the politics of fear and using serious national security issues to try and score political points to help himself,” said spokesman Harrell Kirstein.

    The experience of Max Cleland looms large for Democratic hopefuls. [snip]

    “Republicans are torn between agreeing with Democrats or having no clear position at all,” said Matt Canter, deputy executive director of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee. “Democratic candidates have been decisive and forthright on how to handle this threat, while Republican candidates have been late, in the case of Joni Ernst, or completely unwilling, in the case of Thom Tillis, to lay out a clear strategy.”

    The National Republican Senatorial Committee’s Brad Dayspring responded that “the emergence of national security on the campaign trail highlights staggering incompetence on the part of these Democratic senators and congressmen who not only ignored a growing national security threat but served as rubber-stamps for a President who referred to ISIS as the JV team earlier this year.” [snip]

    Pryor offers perhaps the clearest illustration of how dramatically the politics of Middle East intervention have shifted.

    In July, Pryor pushed an amendment to ban the administration from training and equipping the Syrian rebels. It failed on a 21-9 vote of the Appropriations Committee.

    “There is just too much of a chance that those weapons will land in the hands of extremists, just like in Iraq,” Pryor said at the time.

    This month, Pryor voted for the resolution to arm the rebels, saying he still had “reservations” but that unspecified “safeguards” were added in.

    Republican challenger Tom Cotton, a veteran of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, called the votes political, accusing Pryor of a “complete lack of seriousness” on “matters of war and peace.”

    On Monday, in North Carolina, Tillis became the third Republican to invoke ISIL in a commercial. He linked Hagan’s absence from Armed Services Committee hearings with the crisis in the Middle East.

    “While ISIS grew, Obama kept waiting, and Kay Hagan kept quiet,” a narrator says. “The price for their failure is danger. To change direction, we have to change our senator.”

  7. Priceless, Admin. I love it when these kooks get all riled up. Their contrived super-cool facades start to fall away, and their mouths and fingers begin spewing stupid.

    Some of the same culprits from 2008 involved in the cowardly Hillary hate campaign. You nailed it on NARAL, Admin. That POS organization was anti-Hillary in 2008. Nothing’s changed in 2014. Same for The Nation and the others. Same shit, different day. They are supremely tiresome, so irrelevant, and their condescending , self-important attitude is beyond disgusting. They had to resort to every underhanded trick in the book to get their progressive guy into office, and he turned out to be a disaster – not only for the Dim Party, but for the country. So now the progs are screwed. Their time has come and gone. They had better learn to deal with it.

    I particularly enjoyed this comment:

    “Clayton suggested in an email from January of this year that without a more liberal alternative to Clinton, the party would splinter: “if we have no Progressive candidate with legitimate street cred about taking effective bold action to face the vital issues we’re confronting as a country today (which is pretty much Warren and … cricket, cricket…) in the race for Presidency, that means the abandonment of the Democratic Party by the reemerging and resurgent Left in America.” [snip]

    “They’ll either vote for the Green Party of just sit out. That’s a really big aspect of progressive voters’ strategy” to have their voices heard, he said.”

    __________

    Oh my! They may vote Green Party, or not vote at all! Are we to be worried? Should we feel guilty about their being left behind by their party? These kooks may just take their toys and go home because they’re not winning the game. Wait just a minute. Didn’t they call us vile names in 2008 when we refused to support their guy? Didn’t they demand party unity? Didn’t they write little irrelevant articles and posts about how Hillary needed to do more to get her supporters to vote with the party after Barack stole the nomination? I believe they did.

    Now that she’s the likely nominee, they are whining about not voting or voting Green Party. I say screw ’em. They can vote Green Party, the Communist Party, or write in Daffy Duck. No one gives a damn. They are no longer relevant. They simply don’t matter.

  8. Freespirit, the “gamechanger” kooks are a joke as are the Occupy Wall Street litigants. But we really got a lot of laughs from that “people’s view” asylum. For these kooks the ideal ticket in 2016 is O’Malley/Castro. Talk about the “unreality based community”.

    We didn’t post the link to the full discussion from them which is here:

    http://www.thepeoplesview.net/main/2014/9/9/ready-for-kirsten

    The comments from “Insipid” commence somewhat towards the middle/end of the discussion. But the entire discussion is a load of unreality.

    Read this and weep tears of laughter and incredulity that anyone is so unhinged:

    I want the next POTUS to be someone who is as up to the job as President Obama is-— someone who can keep us moving in the same direction and I want to have a Congress controlled by enough liberal Democrats to get a lot of work done and to bring most of Obama’s work to fruition which would be much more likely with a Democratically controlled Congress in the next election.

    Am I praying for a miracle? I don’t know but I couldn’t hope and agnostically pray for much better.

    Some of them are sure Obama Dimocrats will not only keep the Senate but they will also win the House.

    These people get their Hopium wholesale.

  9. Those comments are pure comedy gold, Admin. They made this drab Monday a whole lot brighter.

    At least this kook recognizes there is a difference between the Obamas and Clintons (which he apparently thinks is a bad thing. lol)

    ________

    “Remember she was the inevitable back in the fall of 2007 and winter of 2008. 30% lead on President Obama. Super Tuesday Feb 2008 changed all that. Hopefully O’malley does not cower to the Clintons. Of course the MSM, Wall st. and the Emoprogs love her. She is part of the establishment and corporate structure of this nation. Voters will find out soon enough what she is about. The Obamas and the Clinton’s are on two different planets. KEEP HOPE ALIVE!!! Dem house in 2014!”

    __________

    They’re trying to keep hope alive for their dream ticket, and for the Dims to take over the House. LMAO Massive amounts of Hopium have created kind of delusional thinking. This guy’s assertion that MSM love Hillary goes beyond delusional to just plain stupidity.

    But, at least he recognizes that “The Obamas and the Clintons are on two different planets”.

    Yes. They are. And Obama’s planet is rapidly burning itself out.

    http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Peace/2014/09/29/Report-Obama-Has-Missed-Over-Half-His-Second-Term-Daily-Intel-Briefings

    A new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) report reveals that President Barack Obama has attended only 42.1% of his daily intelligence briefings (known officially as the Presidential Daily Brief, or PDB) in the 2,079 days of his presidency through September 29, 2014.

    The GAI report also included a breakdown of Obama’s PDB attendance record between terms; he attended 42.4% of his PDBs in his first term and 41.3% in his second.

    The GAI’s alarming findings come on the heels of Obama’s 60 Minutes comments on Sunday, wherein the president laid the blame for the Islamic State’s (ISIS) rapid rise squarely at the feet of his Director of National Intelligence James Clapper.

    “I think our head of the intelligence community, Jim Clapper, has acknowledged that I think they underestimated what had been taking place in Syria,” said Obama.

    According to Daily Beast reporter Eli Lake, members of the Defense establishment were “flabbergasted” by Obama’s attempt to shift blame.

    “Either the president doesn’t read the intelligence he’s getting or he’s bullshitting,” a former senior Pentagon official “who worked closely on the threat posed by Sunni jihadists in Syria and Iraq” told the Daily Beast.

    On Monday, others in the intelligence community similarly blasted Obama and said he’s shown longstanding disinterest in receiving live, in-person PDBs that allow the Commander-in-Chief the chance for critical followup, feedback, questions, and the challenging of flawed intelligence assumptions.

    “It’s pretty well-known that the president hasn’t taken in-person intelligence briefings with any regularity since the early days of 2009,” an Obama national security staffer told the Daily Mail on Monday. “He gets them in writing.” (me/totally irresponsible and more narcissism)

    The Obama security staffer said the president’s PDBs have contained detailed threat warnings about the Islamic State dating back to before the 2012 presidential election.

    “Unless someone very senior has been shredding the president’s daily briefings and telling him that the dog ate them, highly accurate predictions about ISIL have been showing up in the Oval Office since before the 2012 election,” the Obama security staffer told the Daily Mail.

    This is not the first time questions have been raised about Obama’s lack of engagement and interest in receiving in-person daily intelligence briefings. On September 10, 2012, the GAI released a similar report showing that Obama had attended less than half (43.8%) of his daily intelligence briefings up to that point. When Washington Post columnist Marc Thiessen mentioned the GAI’s findings in his column, then-White House Press Secretary Jay Carney dubbed the findings “hilarious.” The very next day, U.S. Libyan Ambassador Chris Stevens and three American staff members were murdered in Benghazi. As Breitbart News reported at the time, the White House’s very own presidential calendar revealed Obama had not received his daily intel briefing in the five consecutive days leading up to the Benghazi attacks.

    Ultimately, as ABC News reported, the White House did not directly dispute the GAI’s numbers but instead said Obama prefers to read his PDB on his iPad instead of receiving the all-important live, in-person briefings.

    Now, with ISIS controlling over 35,000 square miles of territory in its widening caliphate in Iraq and Syria, and with Obama pointing fingers at his own Director of National Intelligence James Clapper for the rise of ISIS, the question remains whether a 42% attendance record on daily intelligence briefings is good enough for most Americans.

    http://www.politico.com/story/2014/09/judge-rules-against-white-house-on-affordable-care-act-111474.html?hp=l1

    Judge rules against White House on Affordable Care Act

    A federal judge in Oklahoma has ruled that Obamacare subsidies cannot go to residents of states that are not running their own insurance exchanges, a second blow to the Obama administration on a issue that threatens a key element of the health law’s coverage expansion.

    Judge Ronald A. White said that the administration’s decision to allow subsidies to go through either a state-run health insurance exchange or the federal exchange is an improper and invalid reading of the Affordable Care Act and must be struck.

    White’s ruling marks the second judgment against the government on the subsidy question and comes as the Supreme Court could decide whether to weigh in.

    “The court holds that the IRS rule is arbitrary, capricious, an abuse of discretion or otherwise not in accordance with law,” White wrote in his ruling. The IRS had allowed people to get subsidies in all states.

    Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt, who brought the lawsuit, welcomed the decision.

    Today’s ruling is a consequential victory for the rule of law,” he said in a statement. “The administration and its bureaucrats in the IRS handed out billions in illegal tax credits and subsidies and vastly expanded the reach of the health care law because they didn’t like the way Congress wrote the Affordable Care Act. That’s not how our system of government works.”

    Split decisions in U.S. appeals courts came earlier this year. The 4th Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond, Va., ruled with the Obama administration, saying the IRS had the right to allow the subsidies to go to residents of any state. The D.C. Court of Appeals ruled against that regulation but it recently vacated that decision when it decided to have the full court, not just a three judge panel, rehear the case.

    The losing party in the 4th Circuit has already asked the Supreme Court to take the case. The Obama administration has until Friday to reply.

    White wrote that he knows the case will be closely scrutinized. And he dismissed criticism that court rulings against the subsidies are politically motivated.

    “Such a case (even if affirmed on the inevitable appeal), does not ‘gut’ or ‘destroy’ anything,” White wrote. “On the contrary, the court is upholding the act as written. Congress is free to amend the ACA to provide for tax credits in both state and federal exchanges, if that is the legislative will.”

    Opponents of the subsidies already say that White’s ruling should nudge the court to review the issue. The Obama administration is expected to appeal this ruling to the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals.

    The decision improve the “odds for SCOTUS taking appeal this fall despite [the] D.C. Circuit’s pending en banc hearing in December,” said Tom Miller, a health care policy expert at the American Enterprise Institute who has been following the legal fight.

  14. What in the world is going on at the IRS?

    “Today’s ruling is a consequential victory for the rule of law,” he said in a statement. “The administration and its bureaucrats in the IRS handed out billions in illegal tax credits and subsidies and vastly expanded the reach of the health care law because they didn’t like the way Congress wrote the Affordable Care Act. That’s not how our system of government works.”

  15. Rule of law:

    http://hotair.com/archives/2014/09/30/another-federal-court-strikes-obamacare-subsidies-on-federal-exchanges/

    But why the district court came to its conclusion isn’t as interesting as how. This judge took an unusually combative view of the hysteria demonstrated by the circuit court judges who upheld the IRS rule. Here he is, recounting the prior decisions (internal citations removed):

    Other judges in similar litigation have cast the plaintiffs’ argument in apocalyptic language. The first sentence of Judge Edwards’ dissent in Halbig is as follows: “This case is about Appellants’ not-so-veiled attempt to gut the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (‘ACA’).” Concurring in King, Judge Davis states that “[a]ppellants’ approach would effectively destroy the statute . . . .” Further, “[w]hat [appellants] may not do is rely on our help to deny to millions of Americans desperately-needed health insurance. . . “

    And then he lays down some judicial wisdom (again, internal cites removed and emphasis below is the court’s):

    Of course, a proper legal decision is not a matter of the court “helping” one side or the other. A lawsuit challenging a federal regulation is a commonplace occurrence in this country, not an affront to judicial dignity. A higher-profile case results in greater scrutiny of the decision, which is understandable and appropriate. “[H]igh as those stakes are, the principle of legislative supremacy that guides us is higher still. . . This limited role serves democratic interests by ensuring that policy is made by elected, politically accountable representatives, not by appointed life-tenured judges.”

    This is a case of statutory interpretation. “The text is what it is, no matter which side benefits.” Such a case (even if affirmed on the inevitable appeal) does not “gut” or “destroy” anything. On the contrary, the court is upholding the Act as written.

    ObamaCare as written and passed into law never made sense. If the law is followed as written and passed the law collapses. It is not for the court to rewrite the law because then the courts would become greater than the legislature and greater than the executive. The judge is right to note that “the court is upholding the Act as written”.

  16. First case of Ebola in U.S. confirmed. The story before the confirmation:

    http://dfw.cbslocal.com/2014/09/29/north-texas-hospital-evaluating-patient-for-potential-ebola-exposure/

    DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – A North Texas hospital has a patient in isolation as they evaluate them for potential exposure to the Ebola virus.

    Officials with Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas released the following statement Monday night:

    “Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas has admitted a patient into strict isolation to be evaluated for potential Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) based on the patient’s symptoms and recent travel history. The hospital is following all Centers for Disease Control and Texas Department of Heath recommendations to ensure the safety of patients, hospital staff, volunteers, physicians and visitors. The CDC anticipates preliminary results tomorrow.”

    The patient’s travel history and specific symptoms remain unclear, but it is said to involve a high fever and vomiting. The name of the patient has not been released.

    CBS 11 News spoke with Dallas County Health and Human Services director Zachary Thompson, who confirmed that the patient had been in the West Africa area where the Ebola virus exists. “Looking at the travel history is the first indicator, and then the next step is [treatment or non-treatment] once we get lab results,” he said.

    Ebola is now confirmed as the diagnosis.

    Potential Presidential Candidate Is Fixing Her Message on the Issues; ‘Data, Data, Data’

    By PETER NICHOLAS CONNECT

    Updated Sept. 29, 2014 11:44 a.m. ET
    NEW YORK—When he first ran for president, Barack Obama’s themes were “hope” and “change.” Hillary Clinton, appearing at a conference last week, trumpeted what she called “evidence-based optimism.”

    That isn’t a phrase that lends itself to a campaign slogan, but these days it captures the unsentimental approach Mrs. Clinton is bringing to policy debates ahead of the 2016 presidential contest.

    “More plan cancellations coming before the elections”

    By Elise Viebeck – 09/30/14 05:05 PM EDT

    Thousands of Americans will see their health plans cancelled before the November elections in a development that could boost critics of ObamaCare.

    The Morning Consult, a Washington-based policy publication, reported that nearly 50,000 people will lose their current health coverage in the coming weeks.

    The figure encompasses cancellations announced by insurance departments and providers in Kentucky, Alaska, Tennessee, New Mexico, North Carolina, Maine and Colorado.

    The possible political consequences are clear in states like Kentucky, where Senate Minority Leader and leading ObamaCare critic Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) is defending his seat against Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes.

  25. DALLAS — Health officials are closely monitoring a possible second Ebola patient who had close contact with the first person to be diagnosed in the U.S., the director of Dallas County’s health department said Wednesday.

    Well whaddaya know, a border state with Ebola pop-ups. Here we go with all the newly arrived illegal youngsters, and bussed all over the US.

    A new form of human terrorism? What group supported and came up with this ‘flooding the borders’ idea??????????????????

    “Take all the seriously ill, poor children and flood America with them. The illegals already living in America, flaunting their ‘rights’ will fight for them. Sneak in the ones with serious, contagious diseases…even better.”

  26. Gonzotx,

    I don’t know if the first person with Ebola was Liberian, legally entering the US or not. But, there were many reports that the children that were flooding into border states, many were very sick and their conditions and illnesses were being hidden. That some hospital staff were threatened not to expose what they knew.

    Then many were bussed all over the US.

    WTF?

    Maybe I have little faith in our administration and those in power, maybe I have lost my mind…or maybe not. 😉

  27. GonzoTx, be extra careful. All these reassurances from the “experts” are as empty as Obama’s assurances on ObamaCare.

  28. This reminds me of the one airline steward that was the first American AIDs patient…

    Thomas Eric Duncan left Liberia on Sept. 19 and arrived in Dallas the following day.

    On Sept. 26, he sought treatment at the hospital after becoming ill but was sent home with a prescription for antibiotics. Duncan’s sister, Mai Wureh, said he notified officials that he was visiting from Liberia when they asked for his Social Security number and he told them he didn’t have one.

    [Do people that live in Liberia have a Social Security card? Why would they ask him this question?]

    Two days later, he was admitted with more critical symptoms, after requiring an ambulance ride to the hospital.

    The patient, whose condition was upgraded to serious Wednesday, was in contact with several children before he was hospitalized and had been staying at a northeast Dallas apartment complex, health officials here said.

    Each of those children have been kept home from school and are under precautionary monitoring, Thompson said.

    VIRUS PROBED IN PARALYSIS CASES IN 9 COLORADO KIDS
    BY MIKE STOBBE
    AP MEDICAL WRITER
    NEW YORK (AP) — Health officials are investigating nine cases of muscle weakness or paralysis in Colorado children and whether the culprit might be a virus causing severe respiratory illness across the country.
    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Friday sent doctors an alert about the polio-like cases and said the germ – enterovirus 68 – was detected in four out of eight of the sick children who had a certain medical test. The status of the ninth case is unclear.
    The virus can cause paralysis but other germs can, too. Health officials don’t know whether the virus caused any of the children’s arm and leg weaknesses or whether it’s just a germ they coincidentally picked up.
    “That’s why we want more information,” and for doctors to report similar cases, said the CDC’s Dr. Jane Seward.
    The cases occurred within the last two months. All nine children are being treated at Children’s Hospital Colorado in Aurora, and most are from the Denver area. A hospital spokeswoman said the patients’ families didn’t want to talk to the media.
    The nine children had fever and respiratory illness about two weeks before developing varying degrees of limb weakness. None seems to have a weak immune system or other conditions that might predispose them to severe illness, but the cases are still being investigated, Seward said. Investigators don’t think it’s polio – eight of the nine children are up to date on polio vaccinations. It’s not known whether the limb weakness or paralysis is temporary or will be long-lasting.
    The cases come amid an unusual wave of severe respiratory illness from enterovirus 68. The germ is not new – it was first identified in 1962 and has caused clusters of illness before, including in Georgia and Pennsylvania in 2009 and Arizona in 2010. Because it’s not routinely tested for, it’s possible the bug spread in previous years but was never distinguished from colds caused by other germs. This year, the virus has gotten more attention because it has been linked to hundreds of severe illnesses. Beginning last month, a flood of sick children began to hit hospitals in Kansas City, Missouri, and Chicago – kids with trouble breathing, some needing oxygen or more extreme care such as a breathing machine. Many – but not all – had asthma before the infection.
    The CDC has been testing a limited number of specimens from very sick children around the country, and as of Thursday reported 277 people in 40 states and the District of Columbia with enterovirus 68. So far no deaths have been attributed to the virus, but Seward said 15 still are being investigated.

    SCHOOLS SCRAMBLE TO HELP TEENS WHO CROSSED BORDER
    BY KIMBERLY HEFLING
    AP EDUCATION WRITER
    FRANKFORD, Del. (AP) — American schools are scrambling to provide services to the large number of children and teenagers who crossed the border alone in recent months.
    Unaccompanied minors who made up the summer spike at the border have moved to communities of all sizes, in nearly every state, Federal data indicates, to live with a relative and await immigration decisions. The Supreme Court has ruled that schools have an obligation to educate all students regardless of their immigration status, so schools have become a safe haven for many of the tens of thousands of these young people mostly from central America living in limbo.
    Delaware’s rural Sussex County has long attracted immigrants, partly because of work in chicken factories, and soybean and corn fields. The district’s population is more than one-quarter Hispanic, and for years has offered an early learning program for non-English speakers.
    Still, officials were caught off guard by about 70 new students mostly from Guatemala – part of the wave crossing the border – enrolling last year, mostly at Sussex Central High School. The Indian River School District over the summer break quickly put together special classes for those needing extra English help.
    On a recent school day, a group of these mostly Spanish-speaking teenage boys with styled spiky hair and high-top sneakers enthusiastically pecked away on hand-held tablets at the G.W. Carver Education Center, pausing to alert the teacher when stumped.
    “If you don’t know what you’re supposed to write on the line, look at my examples, OK?” Lori Ott, their English language teacher, told one.
    The students are eager but face barriers. Some can barely read or write in their native language.
    The district’s goal is to get them assimilated – and eventually into a regular high school. There, they can earn a diploma, even if that means participating in adult education programs and going to school until they are 21.
    “They just crave it, and they will come and ask questions,” Ott said. “How do you say this? And, how do you say that? They just participate and you can’t say enough about them.” more.

  31. Some Ebola ‘facts’:

    [snip]

    Instead, Ebola could be considered moderately contagious, because the virus is not transmitted through the air. The most contagious diseases, such as measles or influenza, virus particles are airborne.

    Humans can be infected by other humans if they come in contact with body fluids from an infected person or contaminated objects from infected persons.

    [snip]

    Symptoms of Ebola typically include: weakness, fever, aches, diarrhea, vomiting and stomach pain. Additional experiences include rash, red eyes, chest pain, throat soreness, difficulty breathing or swallowing and bleeding (including internal).

    Typically, symptoms appear 8-10 days after exposure to the virus, but the incubation period can span two to 21 days.

    Unprotected health care workers are susceptible to infection because of their close contact with patients during treatment.

    REFUGEE PLAN SET UP FOR CENTRAL AMERICAN MINORS
    BY JIM KUHNHENN
    ASSOCIATED PRESS
    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration is initiating a program to give refugee status to some young people from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador in response to the influx of unaccompanied minors arriving at the U.S.-Mexico border.
    Under the program, immigrants from those countries who are lawfully in the United States will be able to request that child relatives still in those three countries be resettled in the United States as refugees. The program would establish in-country processing to screen the young people to determine if they qualify to join relatives in the U.S.
    In a memorandum to the State Department Tuesday, President Barack Obama allocated 4,000 slots for refugees from Latin America and the Caribbean for next year. The number is a fraction of the number of children who have already crossed the border into the United States and are awaiting deportation proceedings.

Believe me, I am cautious, but the fact is, our health care is lacking basic education in more simple contagious diseases.Last w/e I had to over rule a seasoned Dr. and block a room and put a patient on contact isolation that he had let wonder around with Herpes Zoster during the Contagious phase.
