Go, @SarahPalinUSA, Go! Whacks Lauer, ObamaCare on ‘Today’ Show (VIDEO)

Posted on | November 11, 2013 | 41 Comments

Matt Lauer tried to steamroll Mama Grizzly – fail!

Lauer asked Palin about President Barack Obama’s apology at the end of last week after it was discovered that five percent of Americans can’t keep their existing policies because they don’t meet the standards of the new healthcare law.
“What apology?’’ Palin said. “He kind of acknowledged a bit that there’s a broken website. The broken website is the least of America’s worries. This broken website I think is symbolic of a broken administration. Take over one-sixth of our economy and the socialized medicine that’s being crammed down our throat, that’s what’s broken.
“Where do you get this five percent?’’ she said. “It’s not five percent. It’s most Americans will not be able to keep the healthcare policy and programs that they had desired. The new programs that are being forced down our throat are unaffordable. Some of them are still being told, ‘Well if you like that insurance policy and that coverage, you still will be able to keep it, it’s just going to cost you a little bit more.’ That’s the point. If it’s going to cost you more, then it’s not the same policy.”

Even in Deep-Blue California, ObamaCare Still Inspires Deep Doubts, Poll Finds

Posted on | November 11, 2013 | 30 Comments

Donald Douglas points out that President Obama got nearly 60 percent of the vote in California last year, but the president’s signature health-care program is still widely unpopular there:

Sixty-five percent of respondents said people wouldn’t be able to afford the health insurance they’ll be required to have under the law’s individual mandate. Forty percent think the program will have a negative effect on what they pay for coverage, compared with 21% who expect a positive outcome.
According to the survey, 46% of registered voters expect the Affordable Care Act to be a drag on the overall economy and 34% see an economic boost. Nearly 60% think the law’s new requirements will raise healthcare costs and keep businesses from hiring more workers.

Reply To Bill In Kentucky

by Smitty

Brett Baier reads the following:

“Putting things in perspective: March 21st 2010 to October 1 2013 is 3 years, 6 months, 10 days. December 7, 1941 to May 8, 1945 is 3 years, 5 months, 1 day. What this means is that in the time we were attacked at Pearl Harbor to the day Germany surrendered is not enough time for this progressive federal government to build a working webpage. Mobilization of millions, building tens of thousands of tanks, planes, jeeps, subs, cruisers, destroyers, torpedoes, millions upon millions of guns, bombs, ammo, etc. Turning the tide in North Africa, Invading Italy, D-Day, Battle of the Bulge, Race to Berlin – all while we were also fighting the Japanese in the Pacific!! And in that amount of time – this administration can’t build a working webpage.”

All you’re really saying is that the Tea Party-Bush-Cheney Axis is worse than Imperial Japan, Nazi Germany & Fascist Italy combined.

Unspeakable Evil: Planned Parenthood Obstructs Child Rape Investigation

Posted on | November 10, 2013 | 91 Comments

When I first heard this, I couldn’t believe it, but it’s true. Last year, a 31-year-old illegal immigrant named Luis Gonzalez-Jose raped an 11-year-old girl who became pregnant. The man took the girl to a Planned Parenthood clinic where he pretended to be her father and told the staff the girl had been impregnated by her 14-year-old boyfriend.

The clinic performed the abortion and when the police began investigating the rape, the clinic refused to cooperate with the detective, insisting that he get a court order. This is insane.

Furthermore, the girl’s family refused to cooperate with prosecutors and, as the result of a plea bargain, the monster who raped this little girl will serve only six years in prison. Words fail.
