Oregon was going to lead the way and become the shining example of how progressive delivery of health care would work, and show the rest of the country it could implement Obamacare better than anyone else. More than $300 million later and not a single successful sign-up for Obamacare, the Cover Oregon Obamacare exchange was shut down and quickly swept away during the heat of a close election campaign for governor in which the incumbent governor of Oregon at the time, John Kitzhaber was locked in a tight race with a Republican nominee challenging him.
The former head of the CIA Counter-terrorism Center and National Clandestine Service told Fox News on Sunday that Democratic Rep. Nancy Pelosi as well as other members of the Intelligence Committees, including several Democrats of both houses was aware of all the enhanced interrogation techniques, Newsmax reported on Sunday.
Pelosi has been on a damage control mission since the CIA report was released last week and stated that the she did not know anything about the CIA’s enhanced interrogation techniques. Rodriguez also stated that other top Democratic lawmakers were briefed and approved the program and today for political purposes, are stating they knew nothing about it and President Obama called the interrogation techniques torture.

Something — some unseen force — has kept President Obama’s approval ratings from seeking their natural rock-bottom level. This is not to say that his polling numbers have been good; anything but. After hitting a nadir of 40% in December 2013, his Real Clear Politics average has been idling in the low 40s ever since.
But at the risk of being called a racist (which anyone who doesn’t sing daily hosannas to be Obama is called anyway), I will posit that if he were anyone else, his approval numbers would be a good ten points lower. The level of sheer incompetence betrayed by the administration’s rollout of Healthcare.gov and continually escalating problems with Obamacare, the VA scandal (or non-scandal if you’re Nancy Pelosi), and — the final triumph — the outing of a CIA station chief (which vastly outplames Valerie Plame, a desk jockey) would be enough to unseat most leaders.
Consider: They would have us believe the Koch brothers are directly related to the Devil, and have no problem blaming all the evils of the world on them. But guess what? It turns out a number of Democrats, including Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, Dianne Feinstein, Mark Pryor and Chuck Schumer, all took money from the Koch brothers over the last five election cycles, Truth Revolt said Monday.
The Second Amendment of the United States Constitution reads: “A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”
These words have long sparked considerable debate between pro-Second Amendment supporters and gun control proponents, otherwise known as anti-gunners by some. Many believe in the individual’s constitutional right to own a firearm for personal protection.
According to a 2012 study done by Northwestern University, only 48% of Democrats know the Earth orbits the sun and understand that it takes a year for it to do so.
Some traitors are obvious…the names Barack HUSSEIN Obama and Hillary Clinton just roll off the tongue…but sadly some traitors cause one to sigh in total disillusionment…and Speaker of the House John Boehner is one such man…or is he. Continue reading
Remember Democrats? They’re the “party of science.” Their spiritual leader reaffirmed their embrace of scientific method in his State of the Union last Tuesday, when he declared (to applause from his base) that “the debate is settled. Climate change is a fact.”
So, it now appears, is the assertion that the Keystone XL pipeline will not increase carbon emissions. The claim has been made before, by numerous scientists, but now the assurance comes from the president’s own administration. On Friday, his State Department released a report of its final environmental impact study, and it’s all systems go.
In August of this year, the National Review’s Andrew McCarthy published an article on the subject of why talk of impeachment was far from crazy. The same month, New York Times bestselling authors Aaron Klein and Brenda Elliott came out with a book titled “Impeachable Offenses: The Case for Removing Barack Obama from Office.” A poll conducted by Wenzel Strategies found that a majority of respondents thought the IRS scandal was grounds for impeaching the president.
Stories of consumers losing their healthcare plans are numerous and growing and now comes news that ardent two President Obama supporters, both husband and wife are now losing their Kaiser healthcare plan because of Obamacare, ProPublica reported on Wednesday.
They like millions of consumers listened to President Obama when he said on numerous occasions since 2009 that consumers would be able to keep the plans and their doctors but as the weeks progress, those promises have turned out not to be true.
