Veterans Day Commemoration

The Army

Today we commemorate the veterans who have served our country throughout our history. Veterans Day was set aside as a

celebration to honor America’s veterans for their patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good.

God bless and keep them, and their families, too.

  1. Thank you for sharing the photos and remembering the Soldiers. Freedom is free. Many were lost for us to know freedom and have opportunities.

  2. Reblogged this on PUMABydesign001's Blog and commented:
    Thank you to the men and women who served, to those who made the ultimate sacrifice, their families, friends and loved ones. On this day, we honor you. God bless.

    • This is how Barry “honors” the veterans and our serving troops:

      “… Nine senior commanding generals have been fired by the Obama administration this year, leading to speculation by active and retired members of the military that a purge of its commanders is underway.

      Retired generals and current senior commanders that have spoken with TheBlaze say the administration is not only purging the military of commanders they don’t agree with, but is striking fear in the hearts of those still serving.

      The timing comes as the five branches of the U.S. armed forces are reducing staff due to budget cuts, and as U.S. troops are expected to withdraw from Afghanistan next year.

      “I think they’re using the opportunity of the shrinkage of the military to get rid of people that don’t agree with them or not tow the party line. Remember, as (former White House chief of staff) Rahm Emanuel said, never waste a crisis,” a senior retired general told TheBlaze on the condition of anonymity because he still provide services to the government and fears possible retribution. …”

      And how is Congress protecting our troops and generals? Where’s the oversight? Where’s McLame?

      Likewise, retired Navy Capt. Joseph John tells WND that the “bigger picture” is that “the U.S. Armed Forces have been under relentless attack by the occupant of the Oval Office for five years.”

      “I believe there are more than 137 officers who have been forced out or given bad evaluation reports so they will never make Flag (officer), because of their failure to comply to certain views,” said John.

      • Maloof is an interesting person, with some interesting connections.

        I’m still positive that you can trace all this stuff back to the NSA spying. Now that we know what we know, not so surprising what happened to Petraeus and Allen.

  3. http://www.forbes.com/sites/stevenhayward/2013/11/11/obamacare-will-be-repealed-well-in-advance-of-the-2014-elections/

    This article at Forbes predicts that the DemoncRATS will lead the charge to REPEAL Obamacare as early as January, after they hear from their people over the holidays. We can only hope and pray.

  4. A story about Michael Hastings’s untimely death: http://nymag.com/news/features/michael-hastings-2013-11/ Sounds, in the main, like spin to “explain” that he was nuts, on drugs, unstable, and killed himself. Very little said about Brennan; it’s just brushed off that he was doing a story about him. Somebody said it was nothing. Uh,huh.

  5. btw, I hope all the vets out there take advantage of the many free meals that are being given away at restaurants throughout the country.

  6. http://conservativesagainsttyranny.wordpress.com/2013/11/09/chinese-troops-will-have-boots-on-the-ground-in-hawaii-on-tuesday/

    “A key objective of GridEx 2 is to learn how governments would handle a loss of electrical power that is large enough to drastically affect the delivery of common and essential goods and services.” (NYT)

    Hoping that the U.S., Canada or Mexico aren’t GridEx 2’s “fictional third country” and that the soldiers out on reconnaissance in Blue Hawaii don’t stamp ‘Made in China’ on it.

    The New York Times reported on GridEx 2’s massive, Nov. 13-14 drill on August 16, but never mentioned the participation of the Peoples Republic of China’s Army.

    • TY. Didn’t realize the connect between those two stories. Nothing to see here, folks. Move along. Maybe they should just shift their “exercise” over to the Philippines.

  7. Even the Congressional Black Caucus knows that Dear Leader
    Barack H OBAMA…… (our… blessed USURPER…..)
    is untouchable. Congresswoman Maxine Waters once confessed
    to a Detroit crowd:

    “We don’t put pressure on the president,…… let me tell you why.
    We don’t put pressure on the president because ya’ll love…. the
    president.
    You love the president. You’re very proud…to have a black man
    [in the White House] …First time in the history……. of the United
    States of America.
    If we go after the president too hard, …..you’re going after us.”

  8. Heavy “METAL”…the BRAVE CAR MAN…… Is doing his shout OUT….

    “… Birther Matthews; Obama Needs To Stick It To Birther Enemies”

    “The Birther issue really drives Chris Matthews over the edge. He actually says Obama should form a gang to attack Birthers ignoring the fact he reported Obama has an Islamic background and was born in Indonesia.

    Matthews is a pro at distorting details and lying into a camera with a straight face. Saul Alinsky would be proud.”

    http://www.birtherreport.com/2013/11/matthews-obama-should-form-gang-attack-birthers.html

    • Is this recent? If so, then WHY are they suddenly ramping up this birther stuff again? Every time they do, there’s something in the offing that they fear. What is it this time?

      • At the MSNBC site:

        “Hardball 11/11/13”

        “Obama should ‘stick it’ to his enemies
        Ed Rendell and David Corn discuss the onslaught of GOP attacks on the president, and whether the president should strike back at his foes or just keep quiet.”

          ultradepth: “Its nice to see Chris Matthews is still talking about this. Once you find your car keys, do you keep looking? The fact Chris is still trying to persuade people on this means the BC sale is not closed. Once you close the sale, do you keep selling?

          Chris must be trolling this site heavily… he is trying to preempt the new documentation that Zullo will be releasing.”
          —–
          Jose Jimenez: “It is amazing that for a group that is so insignificant, Mathews spends a great deal of news time to them. Obviously, they are worried. I have a problem with people like Mathews, he is a dangerous person.”

          bob68: “Yep, they keep telling us how insignificant we are, but, it’s easy to tell they are worried…..very worried. Based on the time the hardcore Obots are spending here, I’d say they trying to preempt something big. Maybe they are getting tired of people going to websites like this one:

          http://theobamafile.com/_eligibility/WhatToBelieve.htm

          Gosh, where would anyone get the idea Obama was born in Kenya? Though where Obama was born has been pushed aside for even bigger crimes, it’s still very important.”

      • Rosemary Woodhouse

        Yep.

        And thank you, Miri, for the tribute to Veteran’s Day. My friend’s son just signed up for the Army. While I thought how wonderful, I also thought why serve under this administration?

        • There is a movement of veterans suggesting on forums and such that if your son, daughter, grandchild wants to join the military and is not of The Regime, and they still just have to be in the military to go join Israeli Army; won’t have to worry about coming back in a casket (killed by Regime) and/or mentally whacked and/or controlled to be and do bad things.

        • YW. As for your friend’s son: I would have thought the same thing. Who wants HIM as CiC?

          • Rosemary Woodhouse

            Thanks, Miri. My friend, while aware of what is going on, is okay with it because it’s what her son wanted to do his entire life. As she put it, “not everyone is meant to go to college.” I couldn’t tell her this although it’s brilliant advice! It’s already a “done deal” Thank you.

        • Indeed Rose Barry hates the troops. 😡

    • You know what’s totally offensive? That he talks about Obama’s “ENEMIES” and who are they? FELLOW AMERICANS, including fellow ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES OF WE THE PEOPLE. Where’s the respect that they all demand everyone have for Barry, as an elected official? You’re a “hater” if you simply ask the man to prove that he’s eligible under the Constitution for the position he holds. And note that, once again, he, as the others do, lies and says it’s all about birth in Kenya. NOPE. It’s about: NOBODY KNOWS WHERE because there’s NO PROOF. Still, no proof YEARS AFTER. There’s the other current lie: That Obamacare opponents offer no alternative. That’s a LIE and they know it. Here are two: LEAVE the current system alone instead of destroying the lives of millions with your hare-brained, idealistic notions OR accept the free-market solution offered NUMEROUS times by the Republicans. The “zooming American stock market?” How ridiculous. When you cause a crash and then take credit for a 108% rise? That’s like cutting someone’s salary from $100,000 a year to $25,000 a year and then acting all generous when you give them a 108% “raise” to $52,000. Woo Hoo! And AS IF Obama is responsible for the increase when it’s gone up DESPITE Obama. Does he take credit for the beautiful fall colors, too? (Pay no attention to that typhoon–he’s not responsible for THAT. In fact, YOU ARE!) Does this guy really believe that he’s intelligent or could pass for a journalist, ever?

    • Rosemary Woodhouse

      Ed Rendell, “losing hispanic voters”. What about taxpaying Americans, Ed? Chumps?

    • Look what he criticizes Boehner, what he said in response to a question about birthers: Boehner said it’s NOT HIS JOB TO TELL AMERICANS WHAT TO THINK and that HIS JOB IS TO LISTEN TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. To that, Matthews says, “That’s a leader!”

      As if a “leader” is SUPPOSED TO TELL US WHAT TO THINK AND NOT LISTEN TO US. Whom does that describe to a T? Barry (Hitler and Stalin, too, I might add).

      btw, that website, if it appears to work by the end of the month, will only APPEAR to work. That part’s easy. It’s easy to make a computer interface APPEAR to work. There’s software out there that will create a data entry screen for you in seconds. IF you then say, take whatever the people input and put it somewhere and we’ll deal with it later (and of course you then bypass ALL instantaneous checking for identity, eligibility for subsidies, citizenship, etc.–meaning you default to “yes” for EVERYONE versus rejecting on the spot) then it will LOOK like it’s working. Just as Barry looks like a president. Just as Barry “looks like” he’s eligible. Just like the media make him “look like” he’s successful.

      They can and will do Obamacare like they did Barry’s eligibility: Eligible until proven not eligible and so what if the software to check and disprove eligibility doesn’t work or never will work? It’s only the taxpayers on the hook.

      As we see with the James O’Keefe expose, Obamacare is DESIGNED to allow ANYBODY in because the goal, actually the goals, include (1) failure of the system so that single payer can be the “only” alternative (because they’ve destroyed the insurance industry) and (2) bankrupt the country a la Alinsky so that you can then institute your fundamental transformation to a COMMUNIST DICTATORSHIP.

      Korn is a clown to say that it’s not Washington that’s “dysfunctional”, it’s the Republican Party; and he says it immediately after talking about the failure of the Obamacare website, which, we can all agree, is a masterpiece of dysfunction! Washington is a “mess” because Obama and the DemoncRATS control most of the government. That’s simple to see.

      It almost looks like the two guests are kind of embarrassed by Matthews’s rant. Don’t you think? They try to debate reasonably, or what passes for reasonably amongst progressives, and yet Matthews returns over and over to his outrage about his perception of what “birthers” are about (racism), which, of course, is a delusion; but who believes he’s not delusional?

      Isn’t it rather RACIST for Matthews to make an analogy that says that Barry should have a “street corner gang” to play the race card every chance they get and to attack us, as his “enemies”? This, from the guy who sees racists behind every tree! Amazing. Shows you what’s in HIS mind. And as if they don’t do this now, btw: Organize the community to play the race card! They’re called obots.

  10. I have found something I think evil on the Internet.
    Whoa! is this a dog bites man story?
    Well, this one is a little different.

    We routinely discuss theories that with considerable circumstantial evidence stand a chance of being true, like what is the DHS up to buying a billion bullets or where was the prez actually born,
    but there are people who look around and see many more harbingers of doom about to strile everyone dead.
    http://www.terravivos.com/secure/kansas.htm
    Well some people seem very frighthened indeed and list a lot of things,
    a few of which could conceivably occur, and most will not occur.
    And to satisy those truly frightened, the above web site says it is building
    the most massive shelters in the world, to take the chosen community through to the New Age,
    I was curious to see how much you had to pay in advance to own a piece of this new shelter, kind of like vacation condominiums, but you
    can’t just buy one.
    You first have to apply for approval by the community to see if you are a worthy person posessing skills and personality traits for the New World.
    You only get the price details after you have been accepted by the community.
    Now call me sceptical but I think this would turn either into a big Cult or just fall apart as a mega con scheme.
    If I was scared enough to want to join this thing, and then I found out maybe I wasn’t good enough to be invited in, then maybe I’d forget all about the (probably) large amount of money and just so want to prove that I was a good person that cost would be of no object.
    I am not going to join!
    Ya know, most people are good, only probably not these ones.

    • There are already communes like this–where you have to be voted onto the “island”. We’d probably all be rejected as they probably don’t want people who think for themselves. It’s a resort as well as a survival shelter! After the one year of “autonomous survival” for the chosen 5000, what happens then? New Age time shares. Are they planning to rob museums in order to save all those priceless artifacts? I took the video tour. Love that “Lord of the Rings” type music. A little claustrophobic, huh? You know what? Nobody gets out of this world alive.

    “CAUGHT ON TAPE: Obamacare Navigators Counsel Applicants to “Lie”

    Project Veritas”

    “The Obama Administration’s campaign to sign everyone up for government healthcare inspired Project Veritas to go straight to the source and investigate what’s really going on.

    What we found is shocking: navigators, in positions of public trust, told our undercover journalists to lie and defraud the government. Over and over again.”

    http://www.birtherreport.com/2013/11/caught-on-camera-obamacare-navigators.html#more

    • God bless James O’Keefe. He does it again. I heard this on radio this morning. O’Keefe brought down ACORN, remember. Now he’s going to help bring down all ACORN’S successors. You would think they’d learn but apparently THEY CAN’T learn because they’re too stupid, brainwashed, brain dead, evil, amoral, unethical, power hungry or–I’ve run out of adjectives. But you know what? Because of the degrees of separation, Sebelius will tsk tsk and blame it on the community organizations that got the contracts. Just as, the other day, she testified that FELONS can be hired as navigators and that’s up to the community organizations that hire them but she’d be “open” to restricting that, assuming IF the Congress passes a law and Barry signs it, making it law, AS IF she doesn’t have the power to make it a policy NOW or write it into the contracts that hand these unethical scum OUR MONEY with which to UNDERMINE OUR REPUBLIC. Are these people even citizens? I’ll bet navigators can be illegal aliens, too! Why not?

      • OMG. That’s huge. It’s the office of the NATIONAL URBAN LEAGUE!!!!

        Did you catch the person who admitted that “Enroll America” is an arm of the DNC!!! O’Keefe says, as was predicted, that they appear to be coordinating and providing lists to the DNC. Now isn’t this EXACTLY what ACORN did and got in trouble for? They appear to have the people fill out forms for Battleground Texas (which is a DNC campaign to “turn Texas blue”) and they admit that they’re “cross pollinating” to win this campaign.

        • Would it be racist for me to point out that this problem in Texas might be a legacy from Katrina?

          • Rosemary Woodhouse

            Nyet. Houston, we’ve got a problem. Actually, Houston was a divided city long before Katrina. Houston and Austin.

            • Austin, I know about. I figured that Houston must be like most every big “inner” city in the country, only Katrina’s emigrants made it that much worse.

          • Rosemary Woodhouse

            Houston was a lieteral “over the tracks” type of city. Lots of gated communities, lots of “regular” streets (such as Plano) but across the tracks….

            Yes, I am certain it was exacerbated by Katrina displacement.

        • Rosemary Woodhouse

          Beck, Levin and Limbaugh will be the only ones to pick it up. Maybe Hannity. Andrew Breitbart was a great partner for James O’Keefe.

          So, again, if something isn’t televised….did it really happen as far as the Average Joe is concerned?

    • Rosemary Woodhouse

      Was just about to post this. Didn’t one of WTPOTUS regulars confidently state that James O’keefe & Project Veritas would get on this? Well, whomever it was, you are right. O’Keffe is an American hero. God bless him and protect him.

      • Somebody here probably did predict it. We’re prognosticators of the first order. We ought to hang out a sign and collect money, like palm readers. Cassandras, more like it, since nobody listens to us until it’s too late. What I love about O’Keefe is that he ALWAYS has something else. He gives them the rope to hang themselves with. Has there been any response yet? I’m sure he has LOTS more. He is an American hero. Yep. God bless and protect him, and especially his team. I was thinking about the guy who bravely went in there undercover. You can imagine what might happen to him and his life and his family IF the obots should learn who he is.

        • http://www.myfoxdfw.com/story/23950361/one-fired-three-suspended-after-undercover-health-care-video So the little heads start to roll:

          “The Urban League of Greater Dallas fired one person and suspended three others after a video from a conservative activist reportedly showed the workers encouraging health care applicants to lie. …

          The Urban League said in a statement on Tuesday it “does not condone, nor would we ever sanction, misleading the public or any individual who seeks our assistance about any issue, and particularly in this case, an issue as critical as health care.” [Then they must condemn Barry, who misled the entire country about health care!]

          The Urban League said the person fired was a “part-time receptionist trainee” who was not authorized to speak on behalf of The Urban League or act as a Navigator and said it supports decertifying three “Navigators-in-training” in the video.

          The Urban League also called for the unedited video of the incidents to be released. It said the undercover applicants were told the people they were speaking to were Navigators-in-training and “the full context of these comments is not reflected in the video.” …”

          The usual excuses. The video was edited. These weren’t real representatives. Nothing to see here, folks. Move on.

        • RW, your memory is better than mine and I’m one of the ones who said it, less than two weeks ago! Shows how good my memory is: https://wtpotus.wordpress.com/2013/10/31/happy-halloween/comment-page-1/#comment-125392
          “It sounds SO like ACORN. James O’Keefe, I predict, will be or already is very busy.”

          I hope he has inside info on the topic of that comment–how the navigators are really supposed to be signing up everybody to VOTE.

          • Rosemary Woodhouse

            No surprise. And thanks again, foxy. You’re both always so kind. I love our community! Thank God it’s not “organized” 🙂

      • Yes!! Rose our Hero. 🙂

  12. First, you all notice that as more people are calling Obamacare and Obama Marxist/socialist or communist, the Republicans are coming out calling him just plain stupid, and not a smart man, and not a narcissist but just a puppet? Dems are starting to come out of the closet and admit they believe in socialism for America; no shame in it and celebrating it to defend keeping on with Obamacare and the Republicans try to image that Obama is just a puppet and has nothing to do with any of this tearing down of America but is some people in the background? Sure, Obama is not on his own, but he is part of the collective that is at war with America; so why this new, almost Alynsky presentation that he is just a puppet, and clueless, and stupid, and thus by inference, he is free of blame. What the hell is going on? I saw this almost scripted presentation across the conservative blogosphere towards the end of last week.

    • What’s going on? They don’t want to be hit with the race card. They don’t want to damage the “legacy” of the first allegedly African-American POtuS because they believe that canard that blacks will blame them if Barry is disgraced.

      Maybe they think it’s better for him to just look like an innocent puppet than someone who’s deliberately set out to destroy America. I think it’s a mistake but who knows how their minds work?

      I do notice how they’re trying to normalize communism. And then there are the Republicans who sign onto the “new world order”, so …

      Can you believe that I read an article this morning that blamed the lack of a strong CENTRAL government in the Philippines for the devastation caused by the typhoon? They will NEVER, ever, let any good crisis go to waste.

      First this typhoon, before it hit, was said to be the worst ever, with nearly 300 mph winds. Then, after it hit, it was said to be the equivalent of Katrina, maybe a category 4, with 140 mph winds, so one can guess that might have been the truth on the ground that day and which was accidentally truthfully reported.

      But now that the big global summit on “climate change” is going on, the globalists aren’t letting a good crisis go to waste and we’re back to the meme that this was the WORST typhoon in history (not just recorded history) but all of history AND that it was caused over 80% by human beings (read: by us, the USA).

      WAH, do you have any examples of the conservatives having a meme that Barry’s innocent in all this commie crap? I’d like to see it because I haven’t particularly noticed that, other than that they always treat him with kid gloves lest they look racist.

      Hey. It works for the DemoncRATS to be paternalistic and treat Barry with the “soft bigotry of low expectations,” but I wouldn’t expect it to EVER work for any conservative.

      • Well, first one http://theconservativetreehouse.com/2013/11/11/the-persona-of-president-obama/

        Will, have to go back through my travels of last week for others, many in comment sections “around town”; gotta do from computer not this silly little phone. Pay attention and you will start to notice this “he is stupid” “He is puppet” meme accelerated. There is some truth the the stupidity thing because to be a progressive one has to be lacking some critical thinking skills; but then his handlers are also stupid. They are geniuses preying on stupid people, maybe? But ya all can’t be stupid to take down America and have your opposition, the patriots, help you with the destruction, now can ya? (writing on phone can only see line at a time…challenge)

        • He seriously misunderestimates Barry. Obama can be, and is, all of those things: a puppet, narcissistic, intelligent in the way that pathological manipulators always are (it’s one of the “emotional intelligences”), smart (in the way that all hucksters are), malignant (self-evident), a classic addictive personality, a skilled “actor” (who, like many actors, is sometimes very dense–see Affleck), fully aware of (versus out of the loop on) everything his administration does, a skilled liar, lazy (in the sense he sets the ball rolling and then goes to play golf or has a romp with Reg), a wounded, stunted personality which is obvious from what we do grok of his childhood “formative years”, ad infinitum. That author himself is an interesting study.

  13. Sic em Big Dawg!!! 😆

    • Yeah. What’s up with that? HILLARYCARE!!! That’s all I have to say about the Clintons and health care. I trust nothing this man says. There’s always an ulterior motive. The trick is to figure out WHAT. The DemoncRATS will have this around their necks like an albatross. Hillary’s future goes in tandem with theirs. The Republicans, if they go along with whatever “changes” to the law these liars come up with, will once again snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. Whatever happened to “it’s the law of the land” and “it’s SETTLED law, so get used to it?”

      Whatever their solution is, it will cost us more money. These people who lost their health insurance will now HAVE TO buy a new policy that WILL cost more, so the only way to keep the “promise” is for Barry to GIVE THEM MORE OF OUR MONEY. The DemoncRATS buy their way out of every problem, with OUR MONEY. These people will be angry when their insurance costs more so the “solution” will be to give them ALL subsidies. Right? Wait for it.

    • They KNOW that these policies, already cancelled, already done away with on account of the insurance companies being ORDERED by Obama’s administration to deep six these policies, cannot be restored without a huge loss by the insurance companies and WHY should they do it? So what will happen? HE WILL BLAME THE INSURANCE COMPANIES, just as they successfully blamed the BANKS for the housing crisis when THEY FORCED THE BANKS to give loans that people could not afford to repay.

  14. http://www.nytimes.com/2013/11/12/us/michelle-obama-edges-into-a-policy-role-on-higher-education.html?ref=us&_r=0

    “Michelle Obama, after nearly five years of evangelizing exercise and good eating habits, will begin a new initiative on Tuesday that seeks to increase the number of low-income students who pursue a college degree. The goals of the program reflect the first lady’s own life and will immerse her more directly in her husband’s policies. …”

    • All I can say about that is oH S*#!

    • Rosemary Woodhouse

      In other words: turn the Ivies black. Because, you know…a mind is a terrible thing to waste. And we OWE them an Ivy League education.

      • They already GET any Ivy League education their little hearts desire. There must be a lot more to this. Already we have learned that special treatment is enshrined in Obamacare to give “persons of color” medical educations. So the so-called “law of the land” DISCRIMINATES openly against “white” people. Somebody had a dream, which has turned into a nightmare.

    To which Dana Loesch tweeted:

    “The “you’re a whore” ad for Obamacare. Wow.”

    You CANNOT make this stuff up.

    • This is what the tools, our elitist overlords, think of (1) WOMEN and (2) their audience. Check out the language in the website’s title: Do you GOT insurance? Yeah, I know, it’s a play on the “got milk” ads but … I wonder if the milk industry can sue them for copyright violation? Besides which, that should be a semicolon and not a comma in their footnote. They actually cite “common sense” after THEY have created this ad?

  16. Yeah, so what are they going to do about it? SUBMIT!!!! http://washington.cbslocal.com/2013/11/12/report-government-spying-causing-self-censorship-privacy-fears-among-us-writers/

    “In the wake of revelations about intrusive government surveillance, many American authors are worrying about the freedom of the press and some simply are avoiding controversial topics.

    A new report from the PEN Center and the FDR Group entitled “Chilling Effects: NSA Surveillance Drives U.S. Writers to Self-Censor” finds that 85 percent of surveyed writers are worried about government surveillance of Americans, and nearly three-quarters (73 percent) “have never been as worried about privacy rights and freedom of the press as they are today.”

    Sixteen percent of writers have avoided writing or speaking about certain topics due to threatening privacy concerns, and an additional 11 percent have seriously considered such avoidance. …

    Nearly a quarter of the writers surveyed (24 percent) reported deliberately avoiding certain topics in phone or email conversations, and an additional 9 percent have seriously considered such action. A small portion of respondents said they had even declined opportunities to meet with people deemed “security threats by the government” because of privacy fears.”

    “Interior Secretary Sally Jewell says she will recommend that President Obama act alone if necessary to create new national monuments and sidestep a gridlocked Congress that has failed to address dozens of public lands bills.

    Jewell said the logjam on Capitol Hill has created a conservation backlog, and she warned that the Obama administration would not “hold its breath forever” waiting for lawmakers to act. …”

    They ought to act. They should repeal the Antiquities Act of 1906 so that DemoncRAT presidents stop misapplying it.

  18. For Our Son

    Our son, Special Operations Chief (SEAL) Aaron Carson Vaughn (DEVGRU), was one of America’s most elite warriors… one of the 300. He was engaged kinetically in the Global War on Terror and his heart beat passionately for the republic he loved. On 6 Aug, 2011 he, along with 29 other rough, fearless, American warriors, stepped into a CH-47D Chinook chopper in the black of night and headed to a mission from which they would never return.
    As we began searching for answers, our eyes were opened to vile atrocities being played out on America’s military. We quickly came face-to-face with our worst nightmare…our boys shouldn’t have died that night. The downing of Extortion 17 was at best unnecessary and at worst a negligent, reckless loss of life.

  19. Here she is ~ Not Ms. America

    Burt Parks. Burt Parks.

    http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/exclusive-obamacares-mystery-woman-victim-cyberbullies/story?id=20868617

    anonymous Colombian is being bullied and she’s standing up for herself.

    • Goes with the territory, doesn’t it? I don’t know her politics, it may have been pure capitalism, but this “cyberbullying” is an “art” perfected by the very people she’s representing there. If she’s anonymous, then how is it possible to be cyberbullied?

      This fable sounds so unbelievable that it might have been written by Bill Ayers:

      Seeking free family photographs, Adriana emailed a contact at the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services, the agency responsible for the Affordable Care Act’s rollout, about having photos of her and her family taken in exchange for allowing the photos to be used to market the new health care law. She was never paid. …

      Speculation swirled that Adriana might not be a legal resident of the United States, and therefore not even eligible for the health care exchanges. Adriana said she is a wife and mother who lives in Maryland with her 21-month-old son and husband of six and a half years. Her husband is a U.S. citizen, as is his her son. Adriana, who is Colombian, said she has lived legally in the U.S. for more than six years, is currently a permanent resident and is applying for citizenship.

      Though she is eligible for healthcare through the ACA, Adriana says she hasn’t signed up for it, and is neither in favor nor against it.”

      They probably put that “never paid” part in there to avoid any FOIA request, no doubt, because ANY money paid out by We the People is supposed to be accounted for. Even so, there has to be some accounting, somewhere, somehow. These ARE government resources. We the People paid for the photographing as well as the website. How is it that she can get “free family photos” from our government, using our resources? This reads like a typical Obama administration fable, especially the “explanations” for discrepancies in his back stories.

      How “representative” that they use a non-citizen as the face of Obamacare. In addition, they also used Asian faces on the “Latino” Spanish-language webpage!

      How ridiculous that we’re supposed to believe that she contacted the government to offer her face and her family’s faces just so that she could get FREE family photographs! Especially when everybody these days has a digital camera and you can get Snapfish to make you beautiful copies, any size, for pennies–literally pennies.

      I suspect this story exists ONLY to shut down the people who were trying to figure out who she is. The key is to figure out exactly who her husband is. I’ll bet you anything that he’s a connected guy. How does she just happen to know whom to email at CMS? So, there are government emails involved! 🙂 I’m just kidding. They ought to leave this woman alone; it’s not her fault that Obamacare is a disaster, even if she did her part to propagandize the website. She’s a dupe like so many others who have been duped by Barry. But I don’t feel sorry for her for a minute. She is somehow connected. You can read between the lines to see that. The fable is not believable. That any reporter would accept it at face value is no surprise (unless the reporters are complicit), although we’ve seen how they apparently accept the other fables Obama and his people tell. It’s a religion for them. They WANT to believe.

      As for the spokesperson for the administration: Just as Obama can never REALLY apologize for anything, these people, these tools, will not admit that the jokes about and search for Adriana is what caused them to change out her photo. What a bunch of egotists.

      Actually, though, now that I think about it: There must be a bigger story underneath all this because, otherwise, why would they go to all this trouble to protect her and to deflect people from the search? Hmmm.

      • Check out the video of her and tell me what you think. Is the photo on the webpage not of Adriana when she was a tad younger and with a fuller face? If so, then the story is bogus. OMG. Cracking voice over being bullied, although she never went through it as a kid. What a load of shite.

  20. http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2013/nov/12/webmds-healthy-deal-with-obamacare-millions-of-dol/

    “Two months before enrollment began in the Obamacare exchanges, the administration’s top health care official heaped praise on WebMD for launching an online resource to help Americans navigate the complex law. …

    The consumer health care site had the occasional nice thing to say about Obamacare, too. In one article, it predicted doctors might pick up more patients and crowed in an article titled “7 Surprising Things About the Affordable Care Act” that many consumers already had received insurance refunds under the law.

    But what neither Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius nor WebMD mentioned at the time was that the company, which millions of Americans regularly read for health news, also stood to earn millions of dollars from a federal contract to teach doctors about Obamacare.

    The contract documents, reviewed by The Washington Times, reward WebMD handsomely. …

    “Disclosure and transparency would be a good practice for any recipient of federal funding to promote the administration’s health care plan,” said Mr. Grassley, an influential member of the Senate Finance and Budget committees.

    “Even if certain content is not produced with federal funding, but the same company takes federal government money to produce other materials, consumers would be better-informed by knowing the financial relationships,” the senator said. …”

    Your tax dollars at work to PROPAGANDIZE you.

  21. http://nypost.com/2013/11/13/obamas-latest-broken-promise-is-destroying-his-credibility/

    “… No president can lead from such a deep, discredited hole. And his ratings are likely to keep sinking because, once the Web site is fixed, millions more “shoppers” will get sticker shocks from the new policies ObamaCare requires. And next year comes the employer mandate, which will shake up the policies and prices of millions of others. …”

    Nope. Can’t recover unless the RINOs hand him a life line.

  22. Listened a little to the hearing of the IT guys who are testifying to the House committee this morning. What I take from it so far: This Mr. Chao, whoever he is, is a complete tool of the administration. Just a quick search turns up this: http://scaredmonkeys.com/2013/11/12/henry-chao-healthcare-govs-chief-project-manager-at-cms-says-he-never-saw-memo-uncovered-warning-of-limitless-security-risks-of-obamacare-website/

    “Henry Chao, HealthCare.gov’s chief project manager at CMS in charge of building the federal health care website testified for nine hours behind closed doors to the House Oversight Committee in advance of this week’s hearing that he was kept in the dark about serious failures in the website’s security. Chao stated that he was unaware of a September 3 government memo written by another senior official at CMS that found two high-risk issues. In fact he testified that he had been told just the opposite. Chao is the individual who gave the go ahead for Healthcare.gov to go live on October 1, 2013; however, it appears that the person in charge of the project was kept in the dark. Chao testified that it was the first time he saw any such memo that said “the threat and risk potential (to the system) is limitless. When asked whether he was surprised he never saw any such memo he replied, “Yeah … I mean, wouldn’t you be surprised if you were me? It is disturbing. I mean, I don’t deny that this is … a fairly nonstandard way” to proceed.

    How does somebody not tell the project manager of system vulnerability findings? Someone is either lying or purposely set out to mislead to make sure this was implemented on time irregardless of the risks. The real question is did the Obama administration know this and were they directing the implementation be on time at all cost? Sorry folks, I am a healthcare project manager and I have never heard of anything like this. Heads would roll if anything remotely like this occurred. …”

  23. This video has gained legs and is walking all over the internet. 😀

  24. I am watching the hearings on Fox. 🙂

    • Let us know what you think. So far, I’m multitasking and only have impressions. The usual–the DemoncRATS bloviate, spin, and stonewall. The guys who are testifying are combative (if they’re the Obama minions) or respectful and sensible and honest (if they’re just business types caught up in this fiasco). I haven’t heard any ground shaking things so far, but sure have the impression that nobody claims to know anything, that nobody’s responsible for anything, that people who were supposed to be in charge are either lying or were kept out of the loop so they’re just figureheads (with czars really running the show), or maybe this whole thing is a sham and was intended to be one. Nobody could say how much more this is going to cost the taxpayers to fix what we’ve already paid for. Chao said that they’re still building it! I did catch that the software to handle the payments isn’t done yet, which might explain why half the people who are said to have “bought” a policy only have a policy in their “shopping cart”!

  25. Whistleblower – Karen Hudes, Secret plot to nuke USA, More !!!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iemedJ6RVnk

    • This is an excellent video.

      If you”re not up for listening from the start… go to 23 minutes and listen through to the end. Very interesting current events. I am going to listen to it again.

      Thanks.

    • two things perhaps I can help verify what ms. Hudes said……about the Jeuits….as I have ventured much down the path of Jesuit history. THere’s more I could eleborate on, but for now just that: THe jesuits , after being run out of everywhere, i believe Austria first by the queenTHeresa(that’s Louis VI’ grandmother. THen Spain, THen by England and France…the Pope issued a papl Bull and they were rounded up and put on a ship with only their clothes on their backs……they finally after being turned away someplaces were alowed on to Corsica(I think) in the 1760’s. This is where Napoleon was born and the jesuits led him(short version) in his conquests 0 When Napolon was crowned King another Pope declared another Bull and the Jesuits were reinstated. THeres’s so much more, but it must be true what Ms. Hudes says, because it was Napoleon’s brothers son or grandson that set up the CIA(what it was called then I can’t remember), but he worked in the Roosevelt administrantion. He was a jesuit and a mason.
      Also Russia wants to be the 3rd Rome( there’s must hisotry on this )THe vatican somewhere around the time of the moslem and arab invasions of jerusalem the pope was run out and the vatican was set up in Moscow) around 1100’s maybe. THere is a lot of evidence that ther is a huge riff betwen Putin and the Pope(the first jesuit one no less). The Vatican would love nothing more than to see Russia lose it’s sttus a a world power. Watch Putin’s moves in relation to his orthodox church. THe pope has never entered Russia since the Vatican was set up in Rome to it’s former glory.,but there’s some stuff going on right now even between the orthodox church in Russia and the vatican. ANd it’s between the Jesuits too. I wish I could be better at explaining, but as usual, I can’t see what I am writing/

  26. Barack Obama, wife Michelle, daughters, sister, Maya and unidentified in Honolulu during Christmas 2006

    I’ve never seen that photo. Have you?

  27. Drudge is calling the Obamacare enrollments a “disaster”. Fewer than 27,000 actually “enrolled” but they’re those folks who only put a policy in the shopping cart (because, I think, the software to handle PAYMENT hasn’t been finished yet! That was revealed today in the hearing.) This is really wonderful. Al Qaeda can theoretically sign up for Medicaid through the exchanges!

    http://pjmedia.com/blog/medicaid-for-al-qaeda-obamacare-flaw-allows-anyone-on-earth-to-fraudulently-enroll-through-healthcare-gov/

    “The greater concern is initial approval:

    Applicants attempting to register for Medicaid as non-citizens by using Healthcare.gov will have their identification checked in real-time by the SAVE (Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements) database. But if SAVE verification fails, the applicant is not prevented from enrolling in Medicaid/CHIP.

    In fact, the opposite occurs: the applicant is likely enrolled in Medicaid immediately.

    The applicant is then given a 90-day period to clear up the identification problem.

    This “enroll first, confirm later” regulation, combined with the ACA’s easing of verification requirements, allows anyone, from a computer anywhere in the world, to successfully auto-enroll for 90 days of Medicaid by entering fraudulent information about being a certain category of legal alien living in the United States.

    There is no guarantee that state governments will take action to cancel these enrollments at the end of each application’s 90-day period if identification is never provided. The cancellation of unverified enrollments is left to each state’s available manpower and political will.

    At the end of the 90-day period, if states do indeed ask the applicant to produce identification or to have the enrollment canceled, the applicant is allowed to ask for an extension of the 90-day period. The applicant can get the period extended for significantly longer.

    Obamacare does not allow any information entered into Healthcare.gov to be used for legal action against illegal immigrants. Like “catch and release,” an applicant could attempt to fraudulently enroll repeatedly.

    Foreign entities looking to flood the Medicaid rolls with fraudulent auto-enrollments are, of course, beyond U.S. prosecution and able to cause such chaos.

    An organized effort by domestic or foreign entities to create countless numbers of these fraudulent enrollments could challenge Medicaid with an unsolvable administrative situation.”

    Oh, well. Let’s wait for the RINOs to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory, as Rush Limbaugh and Dana Loesch predict. They said the House will pass a bill and then it will go to the Senate to be gutted, where Landrieu’s “mandate” to insurance companies will be inserted and then when the House rejects it–VOILA! The DemoncRATS and the lamestream will say that REPUBLICANS voted against the people and on the side of BIG INSURANCE. They fall for the schemes EVERY FREAKING TIME. NO BILL to “save” Obamacare. NO BILL to make Barry keep his bogus promise. That 72-hour deadline, btw, is part of the Kabuki theater. Count on it.
