Is It Just About The Next Election?

You would hope Obama would be helpful in injecting in the Ferguson grand jury results. But it would seem that he just can’t help being the community organizer. In his rambling statement to possibly tamp down the potential violence he supported local law enforcement with ‘law enforcement needs to work with the community not against it in the coming days’ , ‘there is a deep distrust between communities of color and law enforcement based on the legacy of racial discrimination’, ‘and the good news is that we know having the ranks of law enforcement reflect the community makes a difference’, ‘need better training to treat all people fairly’, ‘it feels that the law often feels that it is applied in a discriminatory fashion’.  This is after he, Holder, Sharpton, and Jackson stirred the pot right after the shooting. You know that he had all the details that the county DA released when the verdict was released but chose to use none of it. Call me cynical but after watching the statement last night it looked like he was setting the stage for getting out the vote for the 2016 election cycle rather than stopping a violent reaction to the grand jury verdict.

Smoke and Mirrors, Round 37

You would have to be one of the Gruber voters to believe that the Obama administration did not know about all the things that were going to pop up shortly after the illegal immigration amnesty executive order announcement. Hoping that the Ferguson grand jury decision, the Chuck Hagel resignation, the failure of the Iran nuclear negotiations,  and the inspector general finding 30K Lois Lerner emails would distract from the illegal immigrant law change.
As Gruber made so apparent, this group will do everything and anything they can to deceive the public about what the government is doing to the American public.

Good Speech-Maker, Bad for America Now and in the Future

I watched the Obama immigration speech last night. It was a typical speech of smoke, mirrors, half-truths, and deception.  Playing Using your emotion with distorted facts, history, and warped logic. You could only wish to have a leaders as sincere as the one you saw on the screen last night.

If he was this committed and sincere he would have done this before the election. After all he announced that he was going to do it in the summer but then changed his mind and said he would do it after the election. He even sighted scriptures to prove the need and urgency. The response from the American people may prove Jonathan Gruber right again.

Will Wonders Never Cease

It appears that ABC, CBS, and NBC will not be carrying Obama’s immigration speech tonight.
Mike Allen reports  “There was agreement among the broadcast networks that this was overtly political. The White House has tried to make a comparison to a time that all the networks carried President Bush in prime time, also related to immigration [2006]. But that was a bipartisan announcement, and this is an overtly political move by the White House.”
Surprising as it may seem, but the networks believe this is just a political speech and act?
The Whitehouse’s position is. “In 2006, Bush gave a 17 minute speech that was televised by all three networks that was about deploying 6000 national guard troops to the border. Obama is making a 10 minute speech that will have a vastly greater impact on the issue. And none of the networks are doing it. We can’t believe they were aggrieved that we announced this on Facebook,” a senior administration official told POLITICO.
We will see if Obama can put enough pressure on his friends to get them to change their minds for tonight’s performance. If he can’t, I wonder what their relationship will be in the next 2 years. They may be moving their allegiance to Hillary and getting her elected.

Net Neutrality By The Feds Is Not Good

From the Patriot Post by Columnist Ed Feulner:
"Ready to pay more for Internet access? Me neither. Unfortunately, that’s exactly what we can expect under the 'net neutrality' rules being pushed by President Obama. 'Net neutrality' may sound harmless, but there would be nothing neutral about this change. ... In short, [broadband providers] can offer -- and charge -- what they want. That’s good for consumers, because it means that in order to compete, they’re always trying to win and keep customers by offering better, faster service at lower rates. ... [N]et neutrality would mean more than a rate hike (which will naturally hit lower-income Americans the hardest). Coming under the FCC’s regulatory thumb would harm innovation and make broadband companies wary of investing in new ways to provide better, faster and cheaper service. ... So let’s see: We’d pay more -- for less. Sounds like a government plan, all right. Here’s a better idea: Leave 'net neutrality' junked on the shoulder of the information superhighway instead."

Don't Buy Net Neutrality

Mr. ‘if you like your plan you can keep your plan, if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor’ is now selling you on something they call ‘net neutrality’. This program consists of the feds taking over the regulation of the internet for some reason that the government sees that is clearly needed.  Note that the internet has developed and operated without any real government control or direction to date. Note that this is the government that has been conducting massive data collection of its citizens after the President told us in his campaigns that he wouldn’t do this and pledged to look into it and get it stopped.  How could the government takeover of the internet be a concern? Note that this is the same president that said that you weren’t misled about the government regulation of the healthcare system with Obamacare. After all, everyone was able to keep their plan, and their doctor, everyone’s expenses when down at least $2500 a year, it didn’t add a dime to the deficit and national debt, and all politicians and citizens embraced it during the last election cycle. If you believe his representation of Obamacare then you need to let him know that you support his takeover of the internet. If you don’t, you better contact your congressman and senators and tell them to take steps to make sure the government doesn’t take over the internet.

If You Say It Often Enough Someone Will Believe It

The man who told the lie of the year (if you like your plan you can keep your plan) answered a question at an Australian press conference with ‘we did not mislead the American public when we passed Obamacare’.  Makes you wonder if there is anything he won’t say to bring his brand of hope and change.
