Kentucky Republican Senator Rand Paul asks the question every American wants answered about ObamaCare.

While our liberal news media is now spewing out false and misleading propaganda about the glorious new Affordable Care Act, the media is still covering up the dirty details about the healthcare plan that most Americans will soon become shockingly aware of. The worst detail is in the enormous deductibles that will make this Socialized Medicine scheme unaffordable to most of the poor and middle-class. The ACA, known to all as ObamaCare, was ramrodded through Congress in 2009 by the Democratic Party when they enjoyed an absolute one-party majority. At least one elected official in Washington is telling the truth but his questions won't be headlined on the 6 o'clock news.

PAUL: Why must the American people suffer when even so many Democrats don’t want Obamacare?

Officials who implemented the law should not escape its pain

By Sen. Rand Paul

Friday, September 27, 2013

Earlier this week, in an effort led by Sen. Ted Cruz, some of my Republican colleagues and I took to the Senate floor with the intent of making Washington listen. The American people have made it abundantly clear that they do not want Obamacare. In fact, a majority of elected officials, the same officials that voted to implement this health care mandate, do not want it, either.

Last summer, in a 5-4 decision authored by Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr., the Supreme Court wrongly concluded that Obamacare’s individual mandate could stand. As a consequence of the court’s ruling, starting on Oct. 1, whether they want it or not, Americans will be compelled to purchase a government-mandated product — health insurance — or pay a tax.

What should infuriate you the most is the fact that the same elected officials who implemented this mandate have recently declared themselves exempt from it. That is to say, these officials are forcing you to partake in something that they themselves are refusing. If Obamacare is so great, why then are federal employees and elected officials getting special treatment and opting out?

If President Obama, Rep. Nancy Pelosi, Sen. Harry Reid and Chief Justice Roberts love Obamacare so much, they should live under it. Their actions speak louder than words, and it is erroneous for these leaders to even attempt to claim that Obamacare is a step forward for Americans.

Rand Paul is a Republican senator from Kentucky.

And it ought to be pointed out that in addition to most of the politicians in Washington asking for and getting exemptions and subsidies from ObamaCare, many of the labor unions that helped get Obama elected are also asking for the same. And major corporations are taking advantage of one of the loopholes in the ACA by reducing employee work hours to below 30 hours a week thus changing their classification from full-time to part-time so they don't have to provide any healthcare.
And then of course there are the lies and misleading statements that have come out from the same Democrats who pushed this legislation through. Most glaringly are the infamous statements from Barack Hussein Obama about how certain we could expect to keep our existing healthcare insurance policy. Now, even the official government web site is rewriting their bold claims.
This entire ObamaCare scam continues to sound like the pitch you’d expect to hear from a used car salesman. Did you hear that those affordable low end health plans that cost less than a hundred bucks a month and have a $5000 deductible?

Obamacare Website Quietly Deletes Reference to 'Free Health Care'

7:24 AM, Sep 30, 2013 • By JERYL BIER

However, sometime between September 16 and September 23, the reference to "free" care was dropped. The title of the topic was changed as well, and now reads: "Where can I get low-cost care in my community?" Here is how the page currently appears:
Other changes include dropping references to "dental" care and the availability of "prescription drugs," as well as exchanging the phrase "specialized care for more serious conditions" for the milder "referrals to specialized care."
Since President Obama has been emphasizing of late how inexpensive Obamacare will be for many Americans, advertising the availability of "free" health care might have been viewed as a deterrent to purchasing even the least expensive option from the government-run exchanges. Since the "bronze" and "silver" level plans that the president has recently been touting as equaling "the cost of your cable bill" and "less than your cell phone bill" will still entail significant out-of-pocket costs for medical care, "free" might still look more attractive to many on the lower end of the income scale. It may be that community health centers will still offer free care to some, but visitors to will no longer be made aware of the option.
The train wreck is about to happen. 


Obama talks about religion: His and ours. 20 quotes on Islam and 20 quotes on Christianity.

From the Australian web site Winds of Jihad.

By Michael Snyder/The Truth

You are about to read some of the most shocking quotes that Barack Obama has ever uttered in public.  A few of these have been widely circulated, but most of them are very obscure.  Even though he claims to be a Christian, throughout his political career Obama has repeatedly attacked traditional Biblical Christianity and he has a very long history of anti-Christian actions.  In public speeches he has repeatedly cast doubt on the Bible, he has repeatedly stated that he does not believe that Jesus is necessary for salvation, and he has consistently said that he believes that all “people of faith” believe in the same God.  At the same time, Obama has always referred to Muhammed as “the Prophet”, he has always expressed great love and respect for Islam, and he has even removed all references to Islam from terror training materials used by federal government agencies.  So what in the world does “the leader of the free world” actually believe?  Read the quotes below and decide for yourself…

20 Quotes By Barack Hussein Obama About Islam

#1 “The future must not belong to those who slander the Prophet of Islam”
#2 “The sweetest sound I know is the Muslim call to prayer”
#3 “We will convey our deep appreciation for the Islamic faith, which has done so much over the centuries to shape the world — including in my own country.”
#4 “As a student of history, I also know civilization’s debt to Islam.”
#5 “Islam has a proud tradition of tolerance.”
#6 “Islam has always been part of America”
#7 “we will encourage more Americans to study in Muslim communities”
#8 “These rituals remind us of the principles that we hold in common, and Islam’s role in advancing justice, progress, tolerance, and the dignity of all human beings.”
#9 “America and Islam are not exclusive and need not be in competition. Instead, they overlap, and share common principles of justice and progress, tolerance and the dignity of all human beings.”
#10 “I made clear that America is not – and never will be – at war with Islam.”
#11 “Islam is not part of the problem in combating violent extremism – it is an important part of promoting peace.”
#12 “So I have known Islam on three continents before coming to the region where it was first revealed”
#13 “In ancient times and in our times, Muslim communities have been at the forefront of innovation and education.”
#14 “throughout history, Islam has demonstrated through words and deeds the possibilities of religious tolerance and racial equality.”
#15 “Ramadan is a celebration of a faith known for great diversity and racial equality”
#16 “The Holy Koran tells us, ‘O mankind! We have created you male and a female; and we have made you into nations and tribes so that you may know one another.’”
#17 “I look forward to hosting an Iftar dinner celebrating Ramadan here at the White House later this week, and wish you a blessed month.”
#18 “We’ve seen those results in generations of Muslim immigrants – farmers and factory workers, helping to lay the railroads and build our cities, the Muslim innovators who helped build some of our highest skyscrapers and who helped unlock the secrets of our universe.”
#19 “That experience guides my conviction that partnership between America and Islam must be based on what Islam is, not what it isn’t. And I consider it part of my responsibility as president of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear.”
#20 “I also know that Islam has always been a part of America’s story.”

20 Quotes By Barack Obama About Christianity

#1 “Whatever we once were, we are no longer a Christian nation”
#2 “We do not consider ourselves a Christian nation.”
#3 “Which passages of scripture should guide our public policy?  Should we go with Leviticus, which suggests slavery is OK and that eating shellfish is an abomination?  Or we could go with Deuteronomy, which suggests stoning your child if he strays from the faith?”
#4 “Even those who claim the Bible’s inerrancy make distinctions between Scriptural edicts, sensing that some passages – the Ten Commandments, say, or a belief in Christ’s divinity – are central to Christian faith, while others are more culturally specific and may be modified to accommodate modern life.”
#5 “The American people intuitively understand this, which is why the majority of Catholics practice birth control and some of those opposed to gay marriage nevertheless are opposed to a Constitutional amendment to ban it. Religious leadership need not accept such wisdom in counseling their flocks, but they should recognize this wisdom in their politics.”
#6 From Obama’s book, The Audacity of Hope: “I am not willing to have the state deny American citizens a civil union that confers equivalent rights on such basic matters as hospital visitation or health insurance coverage simply because the people they love are of the same sex—nor am I willing to accept a reading of the Bible that considers an obscure line in Romans to be more defining of Christianity than the Sermon on the Mount.”
#7 Obama’s response when asked what his definition of sin is: “Being out of alignment with my values.”
#8 “If all it took was someone proclaiming I believe Jesus Christ and that he died for my sins, and that was all there was to it, people wouldn’t have to keep coming to church, would they.”
#9 “This is something that I’m sure I’d have serious debates with my fellow Christians about. I think that the difficult thing about any religion, including Christianity, is that at some level there is a call to evangelize and prostelytize. There’s the belief, certainly in some quarters, that people haven’t embraced Jesus Christ as their personal savior that they’re going to hell.”
#10 “I find it hard to believe that my God would consign four-fifths of the world to hell.  I can’t imagine that my God would allow some little Hindu kid in India who never interacts with the Christian faith to somehow burn for all eternity.  That’s just not part of my religious makeup.”
#11 “I don’t presume to have knowledge of what happens after I die. But I feel very strongly that whether the reward is in the here and now or in the hereafter, the aligning myself to my faith and my values is a good thing.”
#12 “I’ve said this before, and I know this raises questions in the minds of some evangelicals. I do not believe that my mother, who never formally embraced Christianity as far as I know … I do not believe she went to hell.”
#13 “Those opposed to abortion cannot simply invoke God’s will–they have to explain why abortion violates some principle that is accessible to people of all faiths.”
#14 On his support for civil unions for gay couples: “If people find that controversial then I would just refer them to the Sermon on the Mount.”
#15 “You got into these small towns in Pennsylvania and, like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing’s replaced them. And they fell through the Clinton Administration, and the Bush Administration, and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are gonna regenerate and they have not. And it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”
#16 “In our household, the Bible, the Koran and the Bhagavad Gita sat on the shelf alongside books of Greek and Norse and African mythology”
#17 “On Easter or Christmas Day, my mother might drag me to church, just as she dragged me to the Buddhist temple, the Chinese New Year celebration, the Shinto shrine, and ancient Hawaiian burial sites.”
#18 “we have Jews, Muslims, Hindus, atheists, agnostics, Buddhists, and their own path to grace is one that we have to revere and respect as much as our own”
#19 “All of us have a responsibility to work for the day when the mothers of Israelis and Palestinians can see their children grow up without fear; when the Holy Land of the three great faiths is the place of peace that God intended it to be; when Jerusalem is a secure and lasting home for Jews and Christians and Muslims, and a place for all of the children of Abraham to mingle peacefully together as in the story of Isra — (applause) — as in the story of Isra, when Moses, Jesus, and Mohammed, peace be upon them, joined in prayer.  (Applause.)”
#20 “I believe that there are many paths to the same place, and that is a belief that there is a higher power, a belief that we are connected as a people.”

Another double standard thanks to Liberal Democrats: Promote Islam in Public Schools BUT Prevent Christian Faith In The Classroom.

That Muslim Brotherhood candidate in the White House has his hands in everything. Barack Hussein Obama //aka// Barry Soetoro, one time Muslim, mentored for 8-years by Frank Marshall Davis, a card-carrying member of the Communist Party, Community Organizer and product of the Chicago Democratic Party machine, favorite son of The Muslim Brotherhood the greatest threat to America, and suddenly, every school in the nation is getting swamped with an educational curriculum bent over backwards promoting Islam. Its time to fight back. The liberals took God, Jesus and Christianity out of the classrooms years ago, so why is Islam being allowed today?

PARENTS! Here’s how you get Islam out of your public schools


Ohio Mom teams-up with Thomas More Law Center to force the school to remove an Islamic proselytizing video from her son’s 7th Grade History Class.

To all parents, read your children’s History/Social Studies books and ask then exactly what they are being taught about Islam in school. If you don’t like what you see/hear, get a group of parents together and raise Hell with the school board. Then, threaten a lawsuit 


Thomas More  The Olmsted Falls City School District, located in Olmsted Falls, Ohio has agreed to remove the video “30 Days: Muslim and America” from the 7thgrade World History Curriculum.  The action was taken to avoid a constitutional challenge by the Thomas More Law Center (TMLC), a national public interest law firm, in Ann Arbor, Michigan, which filed a series of requests for public records concerning the video on behalf of Jenny McKeigue, a mother of three children who attend schools within the district.  

McKeigue first became concerned about the history curriculum in 2011 when her son, then in 7th grade, was required to memorize the 5 Pillars of Islam.  


After a deeper look into the 7th grade history curriculum, McKeigue became concerned about the content of the “Muslims and America” video to which the school had exposed her son.   She asked the School District to remove the video from the curriculum and replace it with an objective video relevant to the history of Islam, not one that taught children how to become a Muslim. Her request was denied.  Subsequently, Mrs. McKeigue began the escalation process to the Superintendent and the School Board.

After over a year and a half of denied requests for information, including requests for the class syllabus, from the School District, McKeigue reached out to the Thomas More Law Center for assistance. TMLC agreed to help.  Ohio attorney Michael S. Goldstein acted as an affiliated local counsel.


The questionable video features a Christian (Dave) agreeing to embrace the religion of Islam and the Muslim culture by living with a Muslim family for 30 days in Dearborn, Michigan.  Dave was required to live, dress and eat as a Muslim, study the Koran daily and participate in Muslim prayer. The video features several instances of Muslim prayer and even a look at a “how to pray in Islam” sheet complete with Dave practicing how to pray and reciting lines such as “I testify that there is no God other than the Almighty” and “I testify that Mohammad is the messenger of God.”

The video is also set up in a manner that portrays non-Muslims as uneducated bigots and Muslims as persecuted victims. At one point in the video, 7th grade students are told that if they hear someone say something wrong about Islam, it is their responsibility to fix it.

The video was being used as a part of the Ohio 7th Grade Social Studies Standards Expectations for Learning which requires students to “describe achievements by the Islamic civilization and how these achievements were introduced into Western Europe in the time period between 750 BC – 1600AD.” As such, “Muslims and America” is clearly irrelevant to Ohio Social Studies Standards.

Mrs. McKeigue felt the video, in addition to being irrelevant, also violated several Board Policies with regard to the promotion of religion in the classroom and the fair representation of all ethnic and religious groups. Additionally, she questioned the accuracy of the video as well as the applied double standard as no other video was shown nor instruction given demonstrating how to perform the religious exercises of other religions. 

In Wellesley, MA, a class field trip to a mosque had students reciting Muslim prayers

In response to McKeigue’s criticism, the school district invited Olmsted Falls pastors to review the video.  To the school district’s chagrin, several pastors agreed with McKeigue and also questioned the accuracy of the video.  Dr. Todd Hoadley, school superintendent at the time, disregarded their concerns.  At a March 2013 Board meeting, and in private conversations, he defended the video with the astonishing argument that the inaccuracies of the video proved its value.

Richard Thompson. President and Chief Counsel of the TMLC commented: “Teachers may not constitutionally show video tapes that violate the neutrality they must maintain toward religion or that engages in religious instruction. Showing “Muslims and America” violated those principles and the Establishment Clause of our Constitution.  Under the guise of teaching the history of Islam to seventh graders, history teachers were proselytizing students to the Islamic faith. 

Although I applaud the school district for resolving this issue without litigation, I was disappointed to discover internal communications from one history teacher ridiculing and disparaging Mrs. McKeigue, and even suggesting she should be fired from her part time job as alumni director for the school because of her criticism of the video.”

Commentary from the Noisy Room on Barack Obama's disastrous healthcare trainwreck and how Republican Sen. Ted Cruz exposed the Progressive Right for supporting it.

The Senate’s Leonidas Exposes the Progressive Right

Immortals… they fail our king’s test. And a man who fancies himself a god feels a very human chill crawl up his spine. — Dilios
Chris Muir at Day by Day Cartoon The other day, I linked to Bookworm Room’s excellent post comparing Ted Cruz to King Leonidas of 300. And indeed, as Leonidas did, Cruz is making his stand. Not only by filibuster, but by action and deed. A President who fancies himself a god, does indeed feel a very human chill crawl up his spine. That trickle he feels is the Tea Party rising.
And the President is not alone. Americans have had enough of the spineless, Progressive cowards on the right. From WND:
WASHINGTON — Following the epic, 21-hour speech by Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, supporting the defunding of Obamacare, either voters made so many calls to establishment Republicans that their phone lines melted, or those GOP leaders took their phones off the hook.
Even in this age of digital wizardry and limitless voicemail, callers could not get through at all to Sen. Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky.
A message said the senator was experiencing a high volume of calls and directed members of the public to call back later or visit his website.
It was the same story with the man who was the face of the GOP in the 2008 elections, former GOP presidential candidate Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz.
His phone was off the hook, too. Callers got a message stating his voicemail box was full.
The Arizona senator apparently had other matters on his mind during the Cruz speech, tweeting, “Final episode of #Broadchurch tonight – one of the most entertaining shows on TV right now.”
That prompted conservative commentator Michelle Malkin to tweet, “Meanwhile, McCain is tweeting about a TV show. See the problem here, America?”
Oh, we see the problem alright. And that problem spans both sides of the political aisle and has ‘elitist’ written all over it. No one points it out better than Ann Coulter:
Obamacare is an unmitigated disaster.
It was passed illegally without the House ever voting on the Senate bill and became law absent a single Republican vote — even “the girls from Maine” and “the girl from Arizona” — the only major legislation ever enacted on a strict party-line vote. The Supreme Court had to violate the Constitution’s separation of powers to uphold Obamacare as a “tax” — despite the fact that no elected body could ever have enacted such a massive tax hike even with the sleazy parliamentary tricks used to pass this bill.
Proving that everyone hates it, Congress has now exempted itself from Obamacare’s provisions, having asked for, and received, a waiver from President Obama.
Yes, these are the exact same politicians who lecture us that Obamacare is “the law of the land!” (So are our immigration laws.) The same ones who huffily announce that the Supreme Court upheld it! (The court also upheld the First Amendment in Citizens United, but that doesn’t stop Obama from demanding Congress overturn the First Amendment.) They are the same sanctimonious frauds who tell us that Obamacare is “the right thing to do!”
Those guys waived Obamacare for themselves. If national health care is so great, why don’t they want it?
The Progressive Right despises regular Americans. They feel, as do the Leftists, that they are above us. Better and smarter than us. Case in point — Peter King:
Rep. Peter King, who has pulled no punches in criticizing Ted Cruz, said Thursday that supporters of the Texas senator have been bombarding his office with “vile” phone calls.
The New York Republican has called Cruz a fraud for his calls to defund Obamacare, and said the senator’s campaign this summer to get the House to pass a government funding bill that defunds the health care law led to some offensive phone calls to King’s office.
Awww… Did the itty, bitty Progressive on the Right get his feelings hurt? Does he feel dirty having to deal with Conservatives and the Tea Party? You sir, are what is vile and what is wrong with our political system. You are the fraud, not Cruz. Prepare to get a whole lot more offended King. We’re just getting warmed up.
Ted Cruz was speaking for Americans — in defense of Americans, our rights and our way of life. He was doing what he was sent there to do. He did the right thing, the courageous thing, the American thing.
Stand tall and fight in the shade America. Obamacare may become a fact of life, but our fight has just begun. Can’t you just feel the earth shake in DC as the Senate’s Leonidas calls American Spartans to battle?

Some things?! You’ve got to be kidding me… This is not just a train wreck, it is an absolute horror story for each and every family in America. While the elites have made sure they have exemptions, the rest of us are going to be ground into the dust of poverty. We are about to be literally taxed to death. I feel sick — too bad I won’t be able to see a doctor about that.
Here is a partial list of things to come — from Americans for Tax Reform:
And by “some things,” he means uninsured families, medical devices, workplace flex accounts, small businesses, Health Savings Accounts, savings income…
    Starting in tax year 2013:
  • Obamacare Medical Device Tax: Medical device manufacturers employ 409,000 people in 12,000 plants across the country. Obamacare imposes a new 2.3 percent excise tax on gross sales – even if the company does not earn a profit in a given year. In addition to killing small business jobs and impacting research and development budgets, this will make everything from pacemakers to artificial hips more expensive. 
  • Obamacare High Medical Bills Tax: Before Obamacare, Americans facing high medical expenses were allowed a deduction to the extent that those expenses exceeded 7.5 percent of adjusted gross income (AGI). Obamacare now imposes a threshold of 10 percent of AGI. Therefore, Obamacare not only makes it more difficult to claim this deduction, it widens the net of taxable income. 
  • Obamacare Flexible Spending Account Tax: The 30 – 35 million Americans who use a pre-tax Flexible Spending Account (FSA) at work to pay for their family’s basic medical needs face a new Obamacare cap of $2,500. This will squeeze $13 billion of tax money from Americans over the next ten years. (Before Obamacare, the accounts were unlimited under federal law, though employers were allowed to set a cap.) Now, a parent looking to sock away extra money to pay for braces will find themselves quickly hitting this new cap, meaning they would have to pony up some or all of the cost with after-tax dollars. 
  • Obamacare Super Saver Surtax: A new, 3.8 percent surtax on investment income earned in households making at least $250,000 ($200,000 single). 
  • Obamacare Medicare Payroll Tax Increase: First $200,000 ($250,000 Married) Employer/Employee — 1.45%/1.45%, 2.9% self-employed. All Remaining Wages Employer/Employee — 1.45%/2.35%, 3.8% self-employed. And increase of .9%. 
    Starting in tax year 2014:
  • Obamacare Individual Mandate Non-Compliance Tax: Starting in 2014, anyone not buying “qualifying” health insurance – as defined by President Obama’s Department of Health and Human Services — must pay an income surtax to the IRS. The Congressional Budget Office recently estimated that six million American families will be liable for the tax, and as pointed out by the Associated Press: “Most would be in the middle class.” 
    (Delayed by Obama to 2015):
  • Obamacare Employer Mandate Tax: If an employer does not offer health coverage, and at least one employee qualifies for a health tax credit, the employer must pay an additional non-deductible tax of $2,000 for all full-time employees. This provision applies to all employers with 50 or more employees. If any employee actually receives coverage through the exchange, the penalty on the employer for that employee rises to $3,000. If the employer requires a waiting period to enroll in coverage of 30-60 days, there is a $400 tax per employee ($600 if the period is 60 days or longer). 
  • Obamacare Tax on Health Insurers: Annual tax on the industry imposed relative to health insurance premiums collected that year. The tax phases in gradually until 2018. Fully imposed on firms with $50 million in profits. 
    Starting in tax year 2018:
  • Obamacare Tax on Union Member and Early Retiree Health Insurance Plans: Obamacare imposes a new 40 percent excise tax on high cost or “Cadillac” health insurance plans, effective in 2018. This tax increase will most directly affect union families and early retirees, who are likely to be covered by such plans. This Obamacare tax will be levied on insurance policies whose premiums exceed $10,200 for an individual and $27,500 for a family. Middle class union members tend to be covered by such plans in states like Ohio, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Michigan. Higher threshold ($11,500 single/$29,450 family) for early retirees and high-risk professions. CPI +1 percentage point indexed.
This doesn’t include all the massive paperwork and fines that are to come. Buckle up and get ready to experience Obamacare and all its taxes.

Comment from The Noisy Room: Outing the Progressive Republicans Attacking Cruz

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton
Cross-Posted at Right Wing News
Palin is right… time to cowboy up and out the Progressives on the Right who are targeting Ted Cruz. Weasels all.
The Blaze:
After “Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace revealed that GOP leaders had contacted him with opposition research on Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) ahead of Cruz’ appearance on the show, at least a couple of conservatives opined Sunday that Wallace should reveal which Republicans dropped dime.
One of my personal heroes, Mark Levin, also backed Palin with a resounding ‘you go girl!’
Palin evidently has the missing set that our Republican leaders misplaced. She came out on Fox News and called the RINOs out. Using descriptive and accurate terms such as “gutless” and “rudderless,” the Alaskan political maven slapped the Progressives on the right side of the aisle with an Alaskan trout concerning the fight over Obamacare. Mama Grizzly vigorously stated that Conservatives should get behind Ted Cruz and Mike Lee in defunding this regulatory Sharia-enhanced monstrosity. Screw political popularity — do what Americans overwhelmingly demand and starve the beast you spineless asshats.

In true Palin fashion, she made it clear her disgust with “GOP elephants that would actually turn on a senator who is fulfilling his campaign promises.”
Here come the Tea Party giants led from Alaska and Texas, closely followed by Conservatives across the nation. Hear the call of Palin:
“We ask as an American people collectively that they not wave a white flag and just capitulate and give in to the liberals and to those who want this socialized program of health care coverage in our nation,” Palin says.
If the Republicans surrender, they will go down as goats and traitors to the American people. It will become apparent it was far more tempting to align with the enemy, line their pockets and lick the boots of a dictator who would submit a free nation to something very akin to the Jizya tax for Dhimmis.
I gotta tell ya, if Cruz has earned the intense dislike of McCain, I may just adopt him.
From The Blaze comes news that warms my heart and lifts my soul:
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) has been ruffling feathers since his arrival in Washington this year. Including some on his own side of the aisle. In fact, according to a new profile in GQ magazine, the Texas senator has earned the intense dislike of Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.)
“He f***ing hates Cruz,” an adviser to Sen. McCain told GQ’s Jason Zengerle. “He’s just offended by his style.”
But it appears that the contentious relationship cuts both ways. Cruz has his own words for the senior Arizona senator.
“I don’t know a conservative who didn’t feel embarrassed voting in 2006 or 2008,” Cruz said. “I think the Republican Party lost its way. We didn’t stand for the principles we’re supposed to believe in.”
Recall that McCain mocked Sens. Cruz and Rand Paul (R-Ky.) after the Kentucky senator’s 13-hour filibuster over the White House’s drone policy, referring to the two senators and those who agree with them as “wackobirds.”
More recently, McCain has criticized Cruz for his efforts to defund Obamacare, suggesting that attempts to do away with President Barack Obama’s health care law are “not rational.”
“I can tell you that in the U.S. Senate, will not repeal or defund Obamacare. We will not,” McCain told CNN. “And to think we can is not rational.”
Wow, it would seem the esteemed Senator from Arizona has had his Progressive feathers ruffled somewhat, eh? Good. Just retire already, would ya?
Pelosi is saying the cupboard is bare and there’s nothing left to cut in the budget… well, you can start with Obamacare. It’s a good place to start. Then move on to the pork and graft that Pelosi seems to take for granted. And it is way past time to out every Republican who is attacking Cruz. We want names and we will remember, as will history.

"What's good for thee is not good for me." The godless party of the communists exempts themselves from everything.

Patriot Humor
Hypocrisy: "What's good for thee is not good for me" and vice versa, "Do as I say and not as I do". Sort of reminds us of the sign painted on the barn by the pigs in George Orwell's Animal Farm, "All animals are created equal but some are more equal than others". We have seen how the hypocritical leadership of the Democratic Party have exempted themselves and their Congressional staff and selected few from the stifling, high cost of ObamaCare that is about to crush most Americans who haven't benefited by the gratuitous exemptions granted by Obama's decrees. Those lucky ones who were exempted would be most of the Democrat-controlled unions who supported and worked for Obama's election. Hypocrites can and do expect to get away with anything they want (as long as they wield the power) while others who are expected to follow the more civilized rules of society cannot. The word 'hypocrite' has become synonymous with Democrat.  

One of the most egregious examples was the vile curse put upon the children of a Republican Senator's aide by an official of the Democratic Party.

Democratic Official Allan Brauer Wishes Death on Ted Cruz Aide’s Children

Brauer serves as communications chair for Sacramento Democratic Party


Allan Brauer, the communications chair for the Democratic Party of Sacramento, Calif., told an aide to Sen. Ted Cruz (R., Tex.) on Friday that he hoped her children “die from debilitating, painful and incurable diseases.”
 And this was supposed to be the apology:
Update (2:13 p.m.): The California Democratic Party spokesman Tenoch Flores said “the problem” with attacks like wishing a painful death on the children of a political staffer is that it lets people like Sen. Ted Cruz “off the hook,” in a statement to Yahoo’s Chris Moody:
“The problem with this kind of rhetoric is that it lets fringe characters—those who are actively trying to shut down the government—like Ted Cruz, off the hook. It’s never acceptable to wish physical harm against political opponents, regardless of how objectionable their policy priorities are.”
If a Republican had said something horrible like this they would have been hounded by the leftist news media into oblivion and most certainly, out of a job.

What else have the hypocrites done that no one else can get away with? Well, more death threats against Republicans, for one thing. Here are a few examples of public threats against President George Bush by some obvious Democrat supporters that faced no charges. Had any pro-Republican or Tea Party demonstration displayed a similar threat against Barack Hussein Obama they would have been arrested. Read this article for more examples.

On the other hand, some signs do tell the truth.

Democratic Party official forced to RESIGN after tweeting death wish to GOP senator's aide

The Democratic Party of Sacramento County, California scrambled on Friday to deal with fallout from a series of tweets its communications chair sent Friday, in which he wished the children of a speechwriter in the office of Sen. Ted Cruz would endure a painful death.
By day's end Allan Brauer was apologizing, but not before galvanizing conservative Republic tweeters against him in a virtual online bloodbath and losing his political position over what the party called 'appalling and inexcusable' comments.

Canadian University with less than 1% Muslim enrollment installs elaborate foot bath for Muslims. Muslim influence in America grows disproportionately.

The headline story on the Metro Canada website begins with a photo taken inside a men's lavatory on the campus of the University of Regina located in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada. As if to beg the question, WTF is that, the story explains the inexplicable. In order to accommodate its small Muslim population, the University, whose total enrollment is less than 12,000 students, installed elaborate foot baths to enable them to prepare for prayer. The University web site does not explain the number of Muslims enrolled there, but the Metro Canada web site says the Regina Student Union says there are 700 practicing Muslims on the campus, about .58% or about half of one percent. So much for the influence of numbers. Statistics on Canadian population indicate less than 2% are Muslim. 

New University of Regina bathroom facilities help Muslim students prepare for prayer

By Metro Regina 

The University of Regina is going to great lengths to help its Muslim students avoid doing the same when washing for on-campus prayer sessions.
The university has installed “foot-baths” in a public washroom at its Riddell Centre, in order to allow Muslim students — many of whom pray numerous times a day, and wash themselves beforehand — to clean their feet in a way that isn’t awkward and difficult through a use of regular sinks.

Americans have not yet realized how the spread of Islam changes the political landscape of a country. In France and Great Britain today, whole sections of cities are "No-Go" Zones for non-Muslims, including Police, Fire and Ambulance service. News stories from around the United States tell of grade schools devoting extensive course time to the practice of Islam including field trips to Mosques, while it is still forbidden to mention anything about Christianity. Read this headline from the Business Standard web site on 9-20-2013.

Boston school recites Muslim poem instead of Pledge of Allegiance on 9/11 anniversary

That is supposed to be because the population of Muslims in America is relatively small. Dr. Peter Hammond compiled a reference that explains how Muslim demands change the society they live in as their numbers grow in his book "Slavery, Terrorism and Islam: The Historical Roots and Contemporary Threat". Here is an excerpt from his book taken from this web site: 
Islam has religious, legal, political, economic, social, and military components. The religious component is a beard for all of the other components. Islamization begins when there are sufficient Muslims in a country to agitate for their religious privileges. When politically correct, tolerant, and culturally diverse societies agree to Muslim demands for their religious privileges, some of the other components tend to creep in as well.

Here's how it works:
As long as the Muslim population remains around or under 2% in any given country, they will be for the most part be regarded as a peace-loving minority, and not as a threat to other citizens. This is the case in:

United States -- Muslim 0.6%
Australia -- Muslim 1.5%
Canada -- Muslim 1.9%
China -- Muslim 1.8%
Italy -- Muslim 1.5%
Norway -- Muslim 1.8%

At 2% to 5%, they begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups, often with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs. This is happening in:

Denmark -- Muslim 2%
Germany -- Muslim 3.7%
United Kingdom -- Muslim 2.7%
Spain -- Muslim 4%
Thailand -- Muslim 4.6%

From 5% on, they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population. For example, they will push for the introduction of halal (clean by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for Muslims. They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature halal on their shelves -- along with threats for failure to comply. This is occurring in:

France -- Muslim 8%
Philippines -- Muslim 5%
Sweden -- Muslim 5%
Switzerland -- Muslim 4.3%
The Netherlands -- Muslim 5.5%
Trinidad & Tobago -- Muslim 5.8%

At this point, they will work to get the ruling government to allow them to rule themselves (within their ghettos) under Sharia, the Islamic Law. The ultimate goal of Islamists is to establish Sharia law over the entire world.

When Muslims approach 10% of the population, they tend to increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions. In Paris, we are already seeing car-burnings. Any non-Muslim action offends Islam, and results in uprisings and threats, such as in Amsterdam, with opposition to Mohammed cartoons and films about Islam. Such tensions are seen daily,
particularly in Muslim sections, in:

Guyana -- Muslim 10%
India -- Muslim 13.4%
Israel -- Muslim 16%
Kenya -- Muslim 10%
Russia -- Muslim 15%

After reaching 20%, nations can expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia formations, sporadic killings, and the burnings of Christian churches and Jewish synagogues, such as in:

Ethiopia -- Muslim 32.8%

At 40%, nations experience widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks, and ongoing militia warfare, such as in:

Bosnia -- Muslim 40%
Chad -- Muslim 53.1%
Lebanon -- Muslim 59.7%

From 60%, nations experience unfettered persecution of non-believers of all other religions (including non-conforming Muslims), sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon, and Jizya, the tax placed on infidels, such as in:

Albania -- Muslim 70%
Malaysia -- Muslim 60.4%
Qatar -- Muslim 77.5%
Sudan -- Muslim 70%

After 80%, expect daily intimidation and violent jihad, some State-run ethnic cleansing, and even some genocide, as these nations drive out the infidels, and move toward 100% Muslim, such as has been experienced and in some ways is on-going in:

Bangladesh -- Muslim 83%
Egypt -- Muslim 90%
Gaza -- Muslim 98.7%
Indonesia -- Muslim 86.1%
Iran -- Muslim 98%
Iraq -- Muslim 97%
Jordan -- Muslim 92%
Morocco -- Muslim 98.7%
Pakistan -- Muslim 97%
Palestine -- Muslim 99%
Syria -- Muslim 90%
Tajikistan -- Muslim 90%
Turkey -- Muslim 99.8%
United Arab Emirates -- Muslim 96%

100% will usher in the peace of 'Dar-es-Salaam' -- the Islamic House of Peace. Here there's supposed to be peace, because everybody is a Muslim, the Madrasses are the only schools, and the Koran is the only word, such as in:

Afghanistan -- Muslim 100%
Saudi Arabia -- Muslim 100%
Somalia -- Muslim 100%
Yemen -- Muslim 100%

Unfortunately, peace is never achieved, as in these 100% states the most radical Muslims intimidate and spew hatred, and satisfy their blood lust by killing less radical Muslims, for a variety of reasons.

'Before I was nine I had learned the basic canon of Arab life. It was me against my brother; me and my brother against our father; my family against my cousins and the clan; the clan against the tribe; the tribe against the world, and all of us against the infidel -- Leon Uris, 'The Haj'
Next up is the growing demand in America to allow the use of Islamic Sharia Law in our courtrooms when applied to Muslims. Such laws fly in the face of our own Constitutional laws and grant Muslims the right to declare women to be considered less than equal to men. Under Sharia, to prove a rape against a Muslim woman she must provide 4 male witnesses and the victim of the rape is often charged with Adultery - and stoned to death. And Muslim men are permitted to hit their wives which contradicts our laws against spousal abuse. Under Sharia Law anything considered an embarrassment to Islam is forbidden, so is criticism of Muslim actions which we hold as Freedom of Speech. Today, our liberal news media have been following their own self-imposed rules to not mention the religion of any Muslim who commits a crime less it becomes a embarrassment to other Muslims.  Sharia holds Blasphemy as one of their greatest crimes and define it even as vague as when any non-Muslim touches their hate-filled Koran, and along with Apostasy - when a Muslim converts to another religion, and Homosexuals, all carry the penalty of death. There is no moderate ground to be considered in Islam, only the influences of the percentages of population. And in America the Muslim population is only about 2%.

Two conservative Republican women running for Congress - and both are Black.

They must be having conniptions over at the NAACP and at the DNC. Who would have ever thought that a Black woman would run for Congress as a Republican. Not just any Black woman but a conservative Black woman. Not just one conservative Black woman but two! And one was a former Miss America who has a Harvard Law School education. And the other is the elected mayor of Saratoga Springs, Utah. Holy smoke, what is happening to politics in this country today - the stereotypes (created by the liberal Democratic Party and the liberal news media) of the White, Racist, Republicans are about to disappear forever unless the liberal mainstream news media starts working overtime. God Bless America, if this doesn't begin to turn some heads, nothing will.

Mia Love

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Ludmya "Mia" Bourdeau Love (born December 6, 1975) is an American politician. She is currently the mayor of Saratoga Springs, Utah, and was the 2012 Republican Party nominee for the United States House of Representatives in Utah's 4th congressional district. She ran on a fiscally conservative platform of limited government, and placed a heavy emphasis on personal responsibility during her campaign. She lost to six-term incumbent Jim Matheson by 768 votes out of 245,277 votes cast. She was also a speaker at the 2012 Republican National Convention.

Biography of Mia Love from her web site.

Mia graduated from the University of Hartford with a degree in fine arts. She found faith. Then she found Jason. And then she found herself in Utah ready to give back. Mia served two terms on the city council of Saratoga Springs, one of Utah’s fastest growing cities. As City Councilwoman and eventually Mayor, Mia led the city through a period of 1700% population growth in a decade. Under her leadership, the city was able to successfully navigate the drastic transition from agricultural fields to a booming residential community. When the citizen growth necessitated fire and police services, Mia fought to make sure the city’s first ever residential tax implementation would only pay for those essential services, and she structured it in such a way that the tax decreased as a percentage of property value.

Mayor Love is best known for her conservative positions on limited government, increased citizen liberties and limited restraints on business. She believes the best thing she can do as mayor is stay out of the way of business and out of the lives of citizens. She advocates a return to the personal responsibility and reduced government dependency engendered by her father.
