MSNBC screen shot of Al Sharpton interviewing Barack Obama by David Thornton
President Obama admitted to the nation on Tuesday that controversial voter ID laws do not suppress the minority vote. The president, speaking in a radio interview, said that the primary reason that minority voters stay away from the polls was apathy.
Speaking on “Keeping It Real” with Al Sharpton, President Obama admitted, “Most of these laws are not preventing the overwhelming majority of folks who don’t vote from voting. Most people do have an ID. Most people do have a driver’s license. Most people can get to the polls. It may not be as convenient; it may be a little more difficult. There may be a few people who are impeded.” Continue reading →
Martha Robertson, a Democrat running for New York’s 23rd Congressional House seat found herself targeted by an audience that found her pathetic “war on women” attack so absurd they literally laughed out loud.
During a debate held Thursday, she accused Republican Tom Reed of being “part of the War against Women.”
Barack Obama’s two presidential election victories were built on the backs of three groups in which he received landslide victories. Obama won with margins on the order of two-to-one with black, Hispanic and young voters both times he ran. These lopsided numbers of minority and young voters provided him with the slim margin that he needed to eke out a victory over Mitt Romney in spite of a strong showing by Romney among white voters. If any Republican hopes to win a national election in the future, it is axiomatic that he must slice deeply into the Democratic advantage with minority and young voters.
The Democratic plan has been one of targeting their message to individual demographic groups in a divide-and-conquer strategy. Black voters are told that Republicans are racist and want to suppress them at the polls and repeal the Voting Rights Act. Hispanics are told that Republicans are racist and want to deport them. Millennials are swayed by Obama’s “cool” factor. The razor thin rationales targeting the various demographic groups should be permeable to Republican attacks.
2010 was the year of the Tea Party. It seems now that the movement’s impact was a flash in the pan, however. The once mighty grassroots effort flopped in 2012 and continued to slide toward irrelevance in 2014. How did the spontaneous uprising against President Obama’s liberal policies fizzle so quickly, especially since President Obama himself is more unpopular than ever?
In 2010, it seemed that the grass roots conservative movement would shake the nation and upend the Obama Administration. That year saw the Democrats take a “shellacking” as Republicans took control the House of Representatives in a landslide of historic proportions. The Republican class of 2010 included such notable names as Marco Rubio, Rand Paul and Ted Cruz.
Led by the George Soros-funded Media Matters, the liberal hate machine falsely claimed that Fox News’ Kimberly Guilfoyle told young people not to vote. Naturally, low-information voters fell for the lie and expressed outrage. Even Leonard Nimoy fell for the lie.
Did Guilfoyle really say young people shouldn’t vote? Not really, Twitchy said.
Well folks Obama’s gone and done it…he’s pulled the wool over our eyes by successfully diverted and deflected our attention off the upcoming election… diverted our attention off his cleverly ‘put on hold’ amnesty plan…diverted our attention off ISIS actually surging ahead and gaining ground in Iraq and off Iran moving forward with their nuclear enrichment program…as well as diverting our attention off ‘supposed’ improving economic recovery numbers that are anything but…and he’s done it all by keeping us focused on a virus that (rightfully) scares people to death…a virus known as Ebola.
Ebola…a disease Obama well knows has a high spread and mortality rate yet he is more than willing to bring Ebola infected Africans here for treatment while ordering any of our American troops who happen to contract Ebola…while on his ‘supposed’ mission to try and halt the virus…to stay in Liberia for treatment…to stay in the very country ill-equipped to treat their own let alone any of ours.

If you think you’ve seen Obama act like a dictator before, just wait. Mark Levin warned that America will see Obama’s “full Mussolini” after the November election.
“You’re going to see his full Mussolini coming out with his pen and his phone,” he told Sean Hannity Tuesday. Worse yet, Levin warned, Obama’s going to do everything he can “to further screw up the country.”
Oh dear…Barack HUSSEIN Obama…the very man who recently said his job includes protecting Africa and Africans…has now decided…without Congressional approval I might add…to admit Ebola-infected persons who are NOT American citizens into our country for high tech medical care and treatment. And guess who gets to foot the bill for this…’We the People’ and our taxpayer dollars do.
Guess what Obama…our taxpayer dollars are NOT supposed to be used to bring those with a deadly disease into this country…period.
Planning to initiate what he calls “special waivers” to bypass existing laws and regulations that strictly prohibit the admission of non-citizens with a communicable disease…any communicable disease…into our country…Obama is going against his very oath of office where he swore to protect the health, safety, and welfare of the American people.

I’ve said time and again that liberalism, at its core, is an ideology of rage and hate.
On Sunday, the Daily Caller reported that 63-year-old Larry Mitchell, a member of the St. Clair Shores Democratic Club, called himself a progressive socialist, claimed to have Ebola and threatened to give it to conservative students protesting outside an event where former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was speaking. He then tried to lick the students, the Daily Caller added.
