So. @barackobama took away your plan, but now won’t fine you for not having one.
Big of him. And the rest of the Democratic party. And by ‘big of him’ I mean… something unprintable. The Obama administration will not require the millions of Americans who received health-insurance plan cancellation notices to purchase a new policy next year. They’re granting those consumers an exemption from the Affordable Care Act’s individual mandate, a Department of Heath and Human Services spokeswoman confirmed. The | Read More »
How Espionage and Inefficiency Ruined Public Trust
By: Rachel Burger Yesterday, Gallup released a poll that shows a record number of Americans—72%—believe that the greatest threat to the United States is big government. That’s a pretty large leap since March 2009, when only 55% of Americans thought that was the case. What’s even more astonishing is that, across party lines, more people view government as a threat than big business or big | Read More »

Why @BarackObama will cheerfully ignore the AP’s photo complaints.
This would be the complaint in question: Manifestly undemocratic [...] is the way Mr. Obama’s administration — in hypocritical defiance of the principles of openness and transparency he campaigned on — has systematically tried to bypass the media by releasing a sanitized visual record of his activities through official photographs and videos, at the expense of independent journalistic access. The White House-based press corps was | Read More »
Tech at Night: Retransmission Consent is like Net Neutrality? Also, something happens with phone unlocking.
Here at RedState this week, Fred Campbell compared Retransmission Consent with Net Neutrality. Some may think the Steve Scalise bill (on an idea backed by Jim DeMint when he was in the Senate) doesn’t go far enough, but it’s a step, and it’s a lot better than the heavy headed, high-regulatory approach promoted by Anna Eshoo and Zoe Lofgren, Democrats both.
The Obama administration may be terrible on phone unlocking, but they managed to get something done with industry after all.

So, That Fake Mandela Interpreter Was Also Charged With Rape, Kidnapping, and Murder
Well, this story just keeps getting better. We all know about the schizophrenic, hallucinating fake sign language interpreter at Nelson Mandela’s funeral. Did you also know that he was once charged with theft, kidnapping, rape, and murder? According to The Hill: South African news broadcaster eNCA revealed Friday that the deaf interpreter at Nelson Mandela’s memorial has in the past faced numerous criminal charges, including kidnapping, rape and murder.

When Moderates Attack
http://www.mlgoodell.webs.com The world continues to reel in the wake of the shocking execution of a top ranking North Korean official. The Korean Central News Agency confirmed Jang Song Thaek’s death, due to his attempt “to overthrow the state.” Jang, DPRK Leader Kim Jong Un’s uncle, having helped his potentially moderate nephew consolidate power, was widely regarded as the second most powerful man in the Hermit | Read More »
Meet Harry Cunning and Johnny Squeaker
So five years have passed since Obama took office and five years later Americans are still waiting for the promise of a budget, smaller Government, secured borders, jobs, transparency and a strong economy. What did we get in five years a leader and Administration who are addicted to spending, redistribution, big Government, open borders, no transparency, a weakened military and a toxic economy. The unemployment | Read More »
Grandma Writes to Santa Claus
Santa, Just taking a minute to get you up to snuff on what’s going on down here As you and Mrs Claus have probably heard it’s been another bumpy year The Government without a budget – our National Debt is plumb out of site The White House crowd left 4 brave Americans in Benghazi to die one night High powered guns walked across our border | Read More »
Obama’s Bloody Shenanigans
After almost five years of the bloody Obama shenanigans one must wonder if the laws of our land actually protect Americans or just the crooks. Going back in time to April 2009 we sat back and watched Obama, Holder and Napolitano roll out the Fast and Furious Operation. What we do know according to the DOJ website is this: Obama funded the Fast and Furious | Read More »
A Sociopath in Our White House
It’s time to speak up, speak out and clarify who Barack Obama really is and what he’s done in five years in an attempt to destroy our Nation. Let’s call a “Spade a Spade” now, to heck with what someone has conjured up as to what is and what isn’t politically correct. Don’t know about you but I tossed the “Damn” race card out in | Read More »
#Obamacare watch: If you like your volunteer fire department… not @BarackObama’s problem, peasants!
Because the n-dimensional, urbane Democratic party geniuses that created this marvelous healthcare plan for us all have never actually grokked what ‘volunteer’ means in the first place. The International Association of Fire Chiefs has asked the Internal Revenue Service, which has partial oversight of the law, to clarify if current IRS treatment of volunteer firefighters as employees means their hose companies or towns must offer | Read More »
Is the President Smoking Weed Again?
The President is either high or ignorant, though perhaps we should embrace the healing power of “and.” He posits that if the nation raises the minimum wage, there will be an economic boom. Only in leftwing fantasy land and Das Kapital does such a concept even come close to being credible. What’s worse, via his twitter account his minion tweeted out an info graphic making | Read More »
Actors’ Equity might want to have a word with @barackobama on his hiring practices.
Because I’m betting that these people didn’t have union cards: Nineteen people stood behind President Obama on stage in the Executive Office Building Tuesday as the president kicked off a new campaign to promote Obamacare. [snip of biographical data about Monica Weeks] There were 18 other people standing with Weeks and the president on stage. Obama began his remarks by saying, “Thanks to Monica, thanks | Read More »
Tech at Night: I hope your Thanksgiving went well. Defense Department engages in large scale copyright infringement.
Seems like I’m always coming up with excuses not to post, but I knew nobody would read if I posted over Thanksgiving, so I just ate ham instead. I’m now at risk of turning into bacon, I’ve had so much.
Oops. The Department of Defense signed a deal with Apprticity to buy 500 user licenses and a number of server licenses of its software. But after the Army let slip during a presentation that “thousands” of users were in the system, the government’s large-scale copyright infringement exposed. Apptricity and the Obama administration settled for $50 million.
This is your periodic reminder that kids don’t belong on the Internet. The Internet is every sex predator on Earth, all hiding in your kid’s computer or phone. Be careful out there.

No, @barackobama will not fire anybody over #obamacare. Or anything else.
I understand Ed Morrissey’s point, here… A competent executive would have made examples of a few people long ago as a message to the rest to improve their work. The problem is that we don’t have competent executives in this administration, starting at the top. Obama won legislative achievements in his first term without any operational success, which went unnoticed because either the metrics for | Read More »
