    “Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) told Bill Hemmer on America’s Newsroom today that an internet giant offered to build the Obamacare website for free.

    This was confirmed during testimony today before a Congressional committee. Issa, the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman, said the Obama White House turned down the offer.

    Bill Hemmer: Was it proven today that an internet company offered to build the website for free but the government passed on it? Was that true? Did that happen?

    Rep. Darrell Issa: It was stated under oath that it was true. No one argued that it wasn’t.

    The Obama administration blew over a billion dollars so far to build the failed Obamacare website. …”

    Of course, because the GOAL was to tranfer/redistribute taxpayers’ money to OBAMA’S PREFERRED PEEPS. Whom does Barry serve? NOT We the People.

    “Today, SEIU launched its latest in a series of protests aimed at unionizing the fast food industry called #FightFor15. As the name implies, they want to raise the minimum wage to $15 per hour, but more importantly they want to unionize the workforce and line their pockets with member dues.

    The protests, which were largely made up of SEIU members, unpaid interns, and paid unemployed people, failed to attract meaningful authentic protester numbers in any of their locations.

    The SEIU did however succeed in inspiring a backlash in the Twittersphere, leading to the creating of two hashtags #FastFoodThursday and #EatFast. …”

    Barry ADMITS to another lie, according to GP. I haven’t read the underlying story yet.

    “… The Boston Globe reported:

    President Obama acknowledged on Thursday that he lived with his Kenyan uncle for a brief period in the 1980s while preparing to attend Harvard Law School, contradicting a statement more than a year ago that the White House had no record of the two ever meeting.

    Their relationship came into question on Tuesday at the deportation hearing of his uncle, Onyango Obama, in Boston immigration court. His uncle had lived in the United States illegally since the 1970s and revealed in testimony for the first time that his famous nephew had stayed at his Cambridge apartment for about three weeks. At the time, Onyango Obama was here illegally and fighting deportation. …”

    • What’d I tell you? Just this morning I opined: “Of course, if it is TRUE, then Barry has an out. HE didn’t say he never met Omar. It was, according to Jacobs, “the WHITE HOUSE” that said that. They could ALWAYS backtrack now and say that they misunderstood what Barry said while he was so busy running the country.” And it’s EXACTLY as I predicted. They LIE as they “correct” LIES:

      “… On Thursday, a White House official said the press office had not fully researched the relationship between the president and his uncle before telling the Globe that they had no record of the two meeting. This time, the press office asked the president directly, which they had not done in 2011.

      “The president first met Omar Obama when he moved to Cambridge for law school,” said White House spokesman Eric Schultz. “The president did stay with him for a brief period of time until his apartment was ready. After that, they saw each other once every few months, but after law school they fell out of touch. The president has not seen him in 20 years, has not spoken with him in 10.” … [More lies, but if true, what a devoted and grateful nephew.]

      In November 2011, a White House spokesman said he had no record of the two ever meeting. The Washington Post had also reported that scholars believed the two had never met. [SCHOLARS BELIEVED THEY NEVER MET! Got that? So instead of asking Barry, their boss, directly, they consulted SCHOLARS instead? Scholars who depend upon Barry’s very existence for their livelihood? He’s an entire industry now! If only WE were paid!]

      The White House never moved to correct the record, until the president’s famously private uncle took the witness stand in Boston immigration court two days ago. …”

    “Princeton University To Perform “Ballad For Trayvon Martin”…”

    “Via Star Ledger:

    “Ballad for Trayvon Martin for Orchestra and Jazz Quartet,” written in honor of the 17-year-old who was shot in 2012 in Sanford, Fla., by neighborhood watch coordinator George Zimmerman, will receive its world premiere tomorrow.

    The Princeton University Orchestra and the University Concert Jazz Ensemble will perform the work on a program that also includes Dvorak’s Symphony No. 9, Beethoven’s “Egmont” overture and a world premiere of “Teatro di Strada” by David Sanford. Conducted by Michael Pratt, with senior J.J. Warshaw leading the Beethoven, the concert will take place in the Richardson Auditorium and will be repeated Friday.”

    “Milwaukee Man Victim of Knockout Game Attack…”

    “(PennLive) – With his blackened eyes and broken nose, Tim Bessette may just be the country’s latest victim of an urban crime wave known as the “knockout game.” Speaking from his hospital bed in Milwaukee this week, the 53-year-old says he’s lucky to be alive.

    He remembers getting off the bus, walking down the street and encountering four youths. The next thing Bessette knew, he was sucker-punched in the nose. The world went black, and Bessette woke up on the pavement. And as he did, he heard the youths running away, joking and laughing.

    “It was just like the lights went out,” he told Milwaukee media of his Dec. 2 attack. Bessette has given a full description of his assailants to Milwaukee police. No arrests have been made.”

      • FWIW: http://thebackbencher.co.uk/3-things-you-didnt-want-to-know-about-nelson-mandela/ For those who don’t believe in the scrubbing of the Net–I bookmarked that last night to link today and it’s ALREADY disappeared. Try this: http://web.archive.org/web/20130806000831/http://thebackbencher.co.uk/3-things-you-didnt-want-to-know-about-nelson-mandela/

        “Nelson Mandela was the head of UmKhonto we Sizwe, (MK), the terrorist wing of the ANC and South African Communist Party. At his trial, he had pleaded guilty to 156 acts of public violence including mobilising terrorist bombing campaigns, which planted bombs in public places, including the Johannesburg railway station. Many innocent people, including women and children, were killed by Nelson Mandela’s MK terrorists.”

        Also, on the other side, Glenn Beck praised Mandela today, saying he was a REPENTANT man. That he turned towards peace in the end and humbled himself, on his knees, before his former “enemies”. If so, so be it. RIP and God bless his soul. It’s not for us to judge but it’s also not for us to ignore reality. I can understand why Barry regrets Mandela’s death but ignores Thatcher’s.

      • “The apartheid regime was a crime against humanity; as illogical as it was cruel. It is tempting, therefore, the simplify the subject by declaring that all who opposed it were wholly and unswervingly good. Its important to remember, however, that Mandela has been the first to hold his hands up to his shortcomings and mistakes. In books and speeches, he goes to great length to admit his errors. The real tragedy is that too many in the West can’t bring themselves to see what the great man himself has said all along; that he’s just as flawed as the rest of us, and should not be put on a pedestal.”

        I agree totally with that author, whose words are disappeared.

    • Although initially committed to non-violent protest, in association with the South African Communist Party he co-founded the militant Umkhonto we Sizwe (MK) in 1961, leading a bombing campaign against government targets. In 1962 he was arrested, convicted of sabotage and conspiracy to overthrow the government, and sentenced to life imprisonment in the Rivonia Trial.
      Nelson Mandela was on the U.S. terrorist watch list until 2008:

      Which, begs the question: why is he thus lauded? And why removed from watch list in 2008?

      Nelson Mandela was a bad, bad, baaaad, person and so was that sweet thang, Miss Winnie. Communists. And Communists ain’t nice people.

    • John Swen • 18 hours ago

      Finally. It took long enough. Mandela was NO hero. He was NO man of peace. He spent those years in prison not because of his ethnicity, but because HE was a Communist who detonated bombs that killed people.
      His WIFE, Winnie, if not invented, but championed the torture/execution practice known as NeckLacing. That’s where a TIRE is place around someone, filled with gasoline & ignited. The Mandelas have nothing to

        But, we must organize. As I’ve written in numerous places, numerous times, everyone is waiting for a leader to arise. No leader is going to appear! Who have we become that we went from the Greatest Generation to a spineless, cowardly, dependent citizenry in such short order? Will none of us take action? Please, use your God given intuition. We need it now more than ever before. Nothing will be accomplished without the will of God. NOTHING! Organize. Trust BUT VERIFY/ And if, at the end of the day we are as I have mused, Babylon the Great, then so be it. But let God note that we will not given up without having tried to save this nation.

        One nation, under God. Indivisible! And they are dividing us. Do not surrender!

    I find it interesting that Obama wants to fundamentally transform America, yet all of his illegal alien relatives seemed to think America was good enough for them under Reagan & G.H. Bush when they broke the laws & hopped the fence.

    • Yeah, I am always thinking that. People from all over the world want to come to America so they can be corralled and oppressed under a neocommunist governmnent.

    Believe this? Carney Barker says:

    “On Thursday, Carney said no one at the White House had actually asked the president if he’d come face to face with his uncle before making that statement to the press. [Who believes this LIE? Barry micromanages EVERYTHING that has to do with his personal image and his campaigns.]

    “Back when this arose, folks looked at the record, including the president’s book, and there was no evidence that they had met,” Carney said. “Nobody spoke to the president.” [Just like there was no “evidence” of Clinton’s affair with Monica, until there was–DNA on a blue dress. YUK!]

    When the issue came up again this week, Carney said, he personally took the question to the president.

    The president said that he, in fact, had met Omar Obama when he moved to Cambridge for law school, and that he stayed with him for a brief period of time until his apartment was ready,” Carney said.

    After that, aides say, uncle and nephew saw each other once every few months while the president was in Cambridge, and then gradually fell out of touch after the president graduated from law school.

    Carney said there was “absolutely zero interference” by the White House in Obama’s legal case.” [That means there was. Anytime they volunteer ANYTHING and say it absolutely, the opposite is the truth.]

    No interference by the WH, but plenty by friends of the WH, not to mention friends in the media, perhaps former classmates who formerly were at the Boston Globe, not to mention connected lawyers, not to mention connected judges, not to mention how all the pieces just MAGICALLY fell into place for Omar. No problems with multiple SS#’s, no problems with illegal driver’s licenses, no problem with tax liens unpaid, no problem with being an officer of a company when you’re not even a legal resident, no problem with being CONVICTED of anything. Suddenly, you’re a gentleman in a snazzy suit and that’s good enough for the judge, despite that you’ve spit on our laws for 5 decades. Unlike that German family being deported for daring to home school!

    Somebody elsewhere opined that at least, unlike Zeituni, Omar worked for a living and didn’t expect handouts and didn’t insult us and blame US for the sneaky mendacity of Zeituni taking advantage of the social benefit systems WE created, which make it easy to cheat.

    • Miri, you ever tire of being right????? You called this.

      • I actually do get tired of being right on this kind of thing because (1) it’s depressing to realize that I can actually think like these a-holes and (2) I would so much prefer to have a president and an administration that DOESN’T LIE EVERY TIME THEIR MOUTHS MOVE.

        • Carney is so ridiculous and they think we are so stupid. Consider his logic. We’re supposed to believe that they looked at Barry’s book and it didn’t say that Barry had ever met Omar, so they went out and LIED to the public and said with confidence that Barry NEVER met the man. Mind you, the book was written by Bill Ayers in 1995 and it was reissued in 2004. Therefore, it certainly doesn’t follow that he couldn’t have met him any time between 1995 (or 2004) and 2012. After all, the whole clan was at the WH for his Inauguration. In addition, Dreams doesn’t say that Barry met King Abdullah, either! So does that mean that in 2012, they could go out and say Barry NEVER met the man? Is the rule: Unless it says in Barry’s fake “auto”biography that he met someone, then he DID NOT meet him? What kind of weird book would it be if it was a comprehensive list of EVERYBODY BARRY EVER MET? There are a lot of people not mentioned in Barry’s book that Barry met (for example, his adopted sister LIA, with whom he shared a bedroom in Jakarta)! Seems to me that he also didn’t mention Turdi, his transvestite nanny. Does that mean they never met? I wish Ed Henry would as Carney Barker about Lia and Turdi.

          • Rosemary Woodhouse

            Carney is a carny!

            Heads up, Miri. THIS time, Papoose’s name showed in place of mine and presumably, *her* gravatar appeared in the website field prior to my posting. I successfully deleted both fields.

            • I’m never going to figure that out. It must be a bug in their program. Something’s not clearing fields between comments.

  10. the Concert was cancelled and the reason can be found in the 1000 plus comments on why:

    http://www.dnainfo.com/chicago/20131204/river-north/sandy-hook-benefit-concert-canceled-due-low-ticket-sales

    the verdict is in.

    • Has anyone listened to the tapes? Anything interesting or do they sound made up, meaning it took them a year to fabricate something that sounds somewhat plausible? Cynical, aren’t I? I’ll bite: Why did they cancel? NO INTEREST? OR NO BELIEF in the “reality” of the event? I heard on radio that they CLAIM they blocked the release of these tapes out of respect for the privacy of the families. So you tell me: What makes THEM more important and their feelings more deserving of protection than the feelings of, say, George Zimmerman’s (or Trayvon’s) family or the families of EVERY OTHER person who ends up being the focus of some 911 call?

    http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Peace/2013/12/05/American-teacher-shot-dead-in-Libyas-Benghazi–hospital

    • Barry whipped out there to stand in the limelight and use Mandela’s death as a distraction WITHIN MINUTES. Has he commented AT ALL on the death of this AMERICAN? Oh, that’s right. He doesn’t comment on petty stuff like that–the “White House” does. Heard just now that he’s ordered flags to be at half staff for 10 days for Mandela but NOT AT ALL for Mrs. Thatcher. Oh, yeah. Did you see his tweet after Mandela died? It included a photo of HIM, Mooch, and the girls in Mandela’s prison cell. It’s ALL about them, you see.

      • yes, i saw his tribute to hissself.

        For some reason I cannot fatham how an American got a job as chemistry teacher in Benghazi. Does Not Make Sense.

        How many other every day American Joes are holding down menial jobs near the burnt out Consulate?

        • Exactly my thoughts. WHY would ANYONE go there? And then go jogging?

        • Another thing: the story says he’d been there a little over a year. When was the embassy attacked? About a year ago–actually a few months more than a year ago, so he went there only days or weeks after the attack?

  12. November was another below-average month, even by Obama’s low employment standards…

    • This just showed up on my facebook
      Can you do your tweety thing to it?

      Good now ‪#‎RaiseTheWage‬ “@AP: BREAKING: US unemployment rate falls to 5-year low of 7 percent as employers add 203,000 jobs.”

    • Hey, RP, do you have a good one or two sentence response to this,
      “hey, Rush, it’s not marxism, it’s a thing called Christianity….look it up.”? 🙂

      • RP always has good comebacks, but this is sure an issue that’s not easily explained in 140 characters. I’m looking forward to his response. 😉

        • It is a facebook poster caption. I tried but failed as I suffer from verbositis. Very severely afflicted. Been to therapy but the problem just escalated. “Take two words and call me in the morning” is a failed remedy for this “say it over and over and over” hoot.

          • 🙂 Oh, me, too with regard to diarrhea of the mouth. I’m sure you noticed!

            • Yeah, Miri,I have noticed. However, you usually get to where you are going and balance it with some perfectly timed ranting. 🙂 Plus, the facts you include take up a lot of space…… Keep it up, Girl!

              • Hoot, I know. Believe me, I know. When I wrote in college, because the professors insisted, we all had to edit fiercely. My rough drafts could be 50 pages and then I’d reduce them by at least half, if not more! (And still end up saying the same thing.) With a blog, I don’t really have the time to be so persnickety, so you get, basically, my too wordy rough drafts. Sorry.

      • Personally, I’d ask the person who said this to quote Bible verses to support their position. Chances are, they wouldn’t. And if they did respond with verses, that would open up a discussion about what the Word of God does and does not say. For example, I’d ask them, just like I asked the Pope, to please show me where the Holy Bible says governments should be in the business of forcing charity.

        • Well, I like that RP. Thanks!

        • Excellent! I knew you could do it, RP, although I never could. Our faith in you never wavers. 😉

          Oh, I see. You already did it! Back in November. My bad.

        • Well, used your tweet words and got this back. Even after all these years the smugness gets to me….. Can’t talk of spiritual things, of Scripture with the unsaved. Only can fulfill the Great Commission, in order — Preach the Gospel, Baptize The New Believer, Teach the Doctrine of the Faith. Take the “Preach, Beach, Teach” out of order, like talking and discussing the “teach the doctrines” first does not work.

          “Read the Holy Father’s words for yourself.

          Evangelii Gaudium, Apostolic Exhortation of Pope Francis, 2013
          http://www.vatican.va

          • As expected, they weren’t willing to quote scripture.
            They are quite willling to say, “hey, Rush, it’s not marxism, it’s a thing called Christianity….look it up”, but when you challenge them to back up “a thing called Christianity….look it up”, THEY AREN’T WILLING TO “LOOK IT UP”!

            Christianity to them is whatever they decide they want it to be, not what God’s Word says.

            In my opinion, that is not being a Christian, that is making up your own religion of your own choosing.

            They want to call others on the carpet about “a thing called Christianity”, but they aren’t willing to discuss the Holy Bible. Regardless of their personal spiritual beliefs, that is intellectually weak. Like a bully who threatens, but then won’t face a real challenger.

            ===

            Now, as to what the Pope wrote, you may want to share Ed Morrissey’s analysis with them.

            • Thanks for the link, RP. One does have to understand Catholic thinking to know what the Pope was saying. In fact, though, his Spanish was deliberately mistranslated, which is easy to do because translation is a very SUBJECTIVE thing and it depends upon the honesty of a person who is fluent in BOTH languages and is able to understand subtleties. Obama coming out and misusing what the Pope did NOT say, out of context, is probably proof that the mistranslation was by design. Certainly, theology cannot be reduced to sound bites. In NO WAY did the Pope promote GOVERNMENT-IMPOSED COLLECTIVISM OR “CHARITY”. Keep in mind the past two Popes and the last Pope’s attitude towards the present Pope. This Pope is going back to the basics but he’s NOT promoting communism or Marxism. IMHO. But we know by now that the progressives LIE, distort, and follow the motto: By ANY means necessary.

          • I read that they used the LIBERAL Google Translate for the English version. I think that’s true, based on my attempt to retranslate with the help of Google Translate. Run it through another translator and you WILL NOT get a word for word correspondence.

  14. http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2013/12/obama-mentions-his-first-political-protest-in-his-statement-on-mandela-that-was-sponsored-by-marxists/ It’s all about Barry:

    “Barack Obama delivered a statement on the passing of Nelson Mandela yesterday. During his speech he told about his first public speech on apartheid at Occidental College.

    I am one of the countless millions who drew inspiration from Nelson Mandela’s life. My very first political action, the first thing I ever did that involved an issue or a policy or politics, was a protest against apartheid. I studied his words and his writings.”

    But, Barack Obama forgot to mention that his speech at Occidental was sponsored by Marxists and Weatherman terrorists.

    Barack Obama’s first public speech was at an Occidental College event sponsored by the Students for Economic Democracy a branch of the Campaign for Economic Democracy [CED]. Far Left radical Tom Hayden who met with Marxist officials several times during his antiwar career chaired this fringe group in the late 70′s and early ’80′s. Several of the CED principal activists were also veterans of the Hayden-campaign and of the very radical group, Students for a Democratic Society.

    Barack Obama does not include his time at Occidental College on his resume but old friends and former teachers remember his role in protesting college investments in firms doing business in South Africa during the apartheid era. …”

    Hmm. Was this during the time that Mandela’s group was bombing innocents?

    “Rep. James Sensenbrenner Jr., the original author of the Patriot Act, says Director of National Intelligence James Clapper should be prosecuted for lying to Congress.

    “Lying to Congress is a federal offense, and Clapper ought to be fired and prosecuted for it,” the Wisconsin Republican said in an interview with The Hill.

    He said the Justice Department should prosecute Clapper for giving false testimony during a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing in March. …”

    Are we stupid or what?

    10) Only in America … Could politicians talk about the greed of the rich at a $35,000.00 a plate campaign fund-raising event.

    9) Only in America … Could people claim that the government still discriminates against black Americans when they have a black President, a Black Attorney General and roughly 20% of the federal workforce is black while only 14% of the population is black. 40+% of all federal entitlements goes to black Americans – 3X the rate that go to whites, 5X the rate that go to Hispanics!

    8) Only in America … Could they have had the two people most responsible for our tax code, Timothy Geithner (the head of the Treasury Department) and Charles Rangel (who once ran the Ways and Means Committee), BOTH turn out to be tax cheats who are in favor of higher taxes.

    7) Only in America … Can they have terrorists kill people in the name of Allah and have the media primarily react by fretting that Muslims might be harmed by the backlash.

    6) Only in America … Would they make people who want to legally become American citizens wait for years in their home countries and pay tens of thousands of dollars for the privilege, while they discuss letting anyone who sneaks into the country illegally just ‘magically’ become American citizens.

    5) Only in America … Could the people who believe in balancing the budget and sticking by the country’s Constitution be thought of as “extremists.”

    4) Only in America … Could you need to present a driver’s license to cash a check or buy alcohol, but not to vote.

    3) Only in America … Could people demand the government investigate whether oil companies are gouging the public because the price of gas went up when the return on equity invested in a major U.S. Oil company (Marathon Oil) is less than half of a company making tennis shoes (Nike).

    2) Only in America … Could the government collect more tax dollars from the people than any nation in recorded history, still spend a Trillion dollars more than it has per year – for total spending of $7-Million PER MINUTE, and complain that it doesn’t have nearly enough money.

    1) Only in America … Could the rich people – who pay 86% of all income taxes – be accused of not paying their “fair share” by people who don’t pay any income taxes at all.

    and this just for starters.

    • That is excellent! What’s so sad is that it’s true and that, yes, we do appear to be idiots–at least those of us who are FOR all this stupidity. On a happy note, those people do seem to be waking up. Let’s pray it’s not TOO LATE.

    Every now and then, one comes across something uplifting and cheeky. Thought I’d share something smile worthy.
