Worst Case Scenario comes true for deBlasio – I think he and his co-horts, Obama, Sharpton and their ilk, have blood on their hands in this case.  They have encouraged and excused the so called protests which in reality are riots, one of which even chanted “dead cops.”  A line of cops turned their backs on deBlasio as he entered the press conference.  He should have had better sense than to treat those who are supposed to protect him as if they were all bad.  Sharpton is trying to look good, too.  Sorry Mr. Sharpton your hands are bloody in this.

American citizens are the ones still in recession, foreign born workers are the ones being hired. “In November 2014, one in every five U.S. jobs was held by a foreign-born worker, up from one-in-six jobs in January 2010, according to federal data highlighted by the Center for Immigration Studies.”

There is more than one way to send up the white flag of surrender but this is one of the best: The State Department’s Rose Gottemoeller, under secretary for arms control and international security, spoke at the Brookings Institution Thursday where she reaffirmed the United States’ “unassailable” commitment to putting the nuclear weapons genie back in the bottle. Gottemoeller told the attendees at the Arms Control and Non-Proliferation Initiative-sponsored event that “the U.S. commitment to achieving the peace and security of a world without nuclear weapons is unassailable.” I don’t think that will work.

Free Society vs. Fear Society   one of my Facebook friends who lives in Philadelphia posted this link. I agree.  “So this issue isn’t a stupid comedy. It is free people having the freedom to express themselves in a free society. …..If we don’t have a free society, we have a fear society….. Remember the last lines of our National Anthem: “The land of the free and the home of the brave.”.  ”

I was surprised to find this actually was on the front page of the New York Times. Ecuador Family finds Favor after donations to Democrats.  This is infuriating.

Obama Issue Executive Orders by another name – that would be memoranda’s and downplays the number of “executive orders” he has issued.  Playing with words can change statistics but not reality.

Government Waste by NASA – well, if we ever change NASA back into a space program maybe we can find a use for it.

Martha MCSally wins in Arizona.  I guess the Democrats have finally lost the hang of finding enough lost ballot boxes.

I completely agree with this: Jeb Bush, the wrong name at the wrong time.  I do not like dynasties, in towns, cities, state or federal jobs or elected offices.

Time magazine thinks Common Core is the one issue to hamstring Jeb?  mmmm…… not in my opinion.

Poll shows 55% think Obama didn’t get the message in the November elections.  Sarcasm alert:  Gee, what was the first clue?

I know it is hard for liberal news speakers to believe but most Americans do think the EIT or “torture” was justified.  Also no surprise there is a partisan split.

PhD’s and other false Gods - I almost didn’t link this because my husband is a PhD and I have often accused him of having PhD syndrome, but in truth PhD’s are not really what Dennis Prager is talking about in this article. He is writing of the many false gods we have in our culture, most of which are not recognized by many as being what is worshipped.  Read his essay and fill in the blanks as to what your personal false gods may be.

Politifact has definitely shown its partisanship.

Sometimes you have to go way off the mainstream to get the true facts of a story, this one on Ted Cruz gives some facts.  Another take on it here.  And from American Spectator this one.  It did lead to this- Nominee for Norwegian ambassador withdraws his name after Reid did not raise it when he did the other nominees.

Wyoming’s Dr. Barrasso is serious about targeting  Obamacare.

A liberal mags view of Cruz vs Coburn.

Apparently the police almost stopped that siege in Sydney before it started.

What is wrong with American culture?  Here is a major reason: Hugh Hefner and Helen Gurley Brown were the founding parents of vast entertainment and publishing enterprises devoted to promoting a procession of magical sluts, and America has never been the same.  Prior to them there were many actors and writers who had “it.”  But Hefner and Gurley Brown were cultural pioneers, whose unambiguous purposes were to destroy the Judeo-Christian moral code, to separate the privilege of sex from sanctified marriage, and to normalize a view of human beings as all sexual all the time.

Obamacare and Eugenics.  I wonder how many people picked up on this.  My husband did and said,” He is a Margaret Sanger.”  Positive selection means weeding out the unwanted, or as Jesus put it, ‘Go out quickly into the streets and alleys of the town and bring in the poor, the crippled, the blind and the lame.’ but he was planning to heal not destroy them.

The figures on how many eagles and other protected and endangered birds have been killed by wind turbine farms is being kept from the public Part 2.    Part 1 is here.

Dianne Fienstein’s Travesty This woman has sullied her character beyond repair.  I do not know how good her reputation was to start with, but now it is in the tank.

I know this isn’t going anywhere, but can you believe this? And on Saturday evening, as his chamber readies the so-called “CRomnibus” spending bill for package, Reid has agreed to allow a vote on a measure from Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) on questioning the constitutionality of President Barack Obama’s executive amnesty. “

 *Update:  The measure failed when it came up for a vote in the Senate. But since some Republicans, like Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA), were whipping votes, according to a congressional GOP aide, in favor of Obama’s executive amnesty against Cruz’s measure, a surprisingly high number of Republicans voted to reaffirm Obama’s executive amnesty. The measure failed with 22 senators voting for it and 74 voting against it. Toomey’s office hasn’t responded to a request for comment as to why he was whipping votes against Cruz’s measure, and in favor of Obama’s amnesty.

This is how the Hill describes it.

Schools losing money on Michelle Obama’s school lunch program  I do not believe they are using it here in Rockport as my niece reported her son had breakfast at school and enjoyed it because it was biscuits and gravy.  I don’t think that is Michelle approved.

 “To let fact-checking define the narrative would be a huge mistake.”  Unfortunately this is true in much of today’s reporting.  The narrative, not the truth, is the point of the story.

Is Obama trying to lose the amnesty lawsuit?  I doubt he is, he is an arrogant narcissist, I hope he gets a few more gray hairs over this.

The downside of low gas prices- it will not be good for Texas and other oil states.

Mozart and Multiculturalism – Muslims have been known as a problem for a long, long time.  Apparently we lost sight of that.  I know this is long, but it is history that should be known.

This brought tears to my eyes, I think it will to yours, too.    Be sure to read it.

Senator Cruz is not backing down.  This is an interesting take on the Senate, in another article I read this: Senator Harry Reid blocks quick budget deal.  Of course you can tell which came from a liberal site and which came from conservative site.  Read them both, make up your own mind.  Fair and balanced, that me.

The Democrats depressing new reality is that they are as divided as the Republicans. Now that they are going to be the minority party in both houses some of them apparently have decided lockstep with Obama and his minions are not really where they want to be.

A Mexican man arrested while crossing into the United States with marijuana in his bag has filed a lawsuit against the country, alleging that a Border Patrol dog bit him.  Our world has just turned silly.

An Open Letter to the Republican Leadership –  good advice.

A very good post on why socialism appeals to so many.  This essay makes sense.  On the same subject Communist Propaganda Writ Small.

Let’s blame it on the Democrats –  seems like a good idea to me.

Bill Whittle and Andrew Klavan discuss How do  you find God?  Watch it, it is worth the 7 minutes.

““My own inexcusable arrogance,” Gruber told the committee, “is not a flaw in the Affordable Care Act.” Oh, yes it is”. Read the whole essay, this is in the middle.

Why releasing the report on the CIA will make America stronger  – there was a lot of fear that this would cause riots in the Middle East, I doubted it, they understand these things.  I wouldn’t want to be like them, but in my opinion they will look at this as a strength we have rather than a flaw.  The Marine General in charge of Guantanamo seems to agree.   Moral outrage or vindictive actions by an enraged Democrat?  My question, just read the article for the answer.

Special deals and giveaways in the Omnibus bill.

Correction on yesterday’s bad link The New Congress must save the USA from the EPA.

Along those same lines is this article in, EPA Deception Exposed,energy prices dropping, NYTimes panics.

About the waterboarding, so called torture report, I think I have a new candidate for that treatment; ISIS offers to sell beheaded body of Foley to his parents for $1,000,000.  On second thought we need to use Saddam’s torture methods on them.  Do I sound mean and thoughtless, I don’t think so.  The Torture reports one glaring weakness.  They knew, they did nothing, they approved, and not they are angry and vindictive.

Congressional liberals rebelled Wednesday against a must-pass spending bill that would keep the government open past midnight Thursday,  Elizabeth Warren is leading the charge.

Kathleen Sebelius thinks a name change would help Obamacare.  Sorry, Kathleen, the name is not the problem.

Pentagon Considering (re) Deployment of Missiles in Europe.

What’s in the Bill?  The Washington Post skims it for you.  A smoke filled room?

Dana Milbank thinks it is a fine thing to hog tie Ted Cruz, I don’t.  If you want to see a real revival of the Tea Parties watch the GOP establishment try to keep them down.

What if Obama had been honest?  What a concept!  He WAS definitely honest in the change he wanted and he has achieved it, much to his shame.

Ann Althouse asks an important question What’s the bigger number: dollars in the national debt or pieces of plastic floating in the ocean.  Well, for one thing we can compute the national debt but we can only speculate about the plastic in the ocean.  My liberal son recently sailed from the Upper Chesapeake to the British Virgin Islands and much to the surprise of him and others on the boat they saw NO PLASTIC.
