Thanks to our guest, Jack Cashill, terrific and prolific author. His eighth book, If I Had a Son: Race, Guns and the Railroading of George Zimmerman, is a must-read.
Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Blabbermouth) tells an incredulous Candy Crowley that (1) the Obamacare disaster had no effect on the Virginia government election and (2) not only will it not hurt democrats in 2014, it will be an asset. She referred to the cancellation letters being received by millions as “transition letters.” One recipient of such a letter told Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday that he was being “transitioned” from a policy with a $3500 deductible to one with a $12,700 deductible! I guess I can see why she thinks dems will want to proudly run on the (Un)Affordable Care Act next year, don’t you?

2nd Amendment Update
From the live and lively chat:

Yesterday I tweeted CNN’s Jake Tapper, who used to be the White House correspondent for ABC, to ask him to please ask the next Obot apparatchik who shows up on his show about Barack Obama’s 2009 mantra “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. If you like your plan, you can keep your plan.” I was inspired to that by stories like the following one from the Huffington Post, which are certainly only the beginning of a flood of similar bad news, about thousands of people losing their health insurance plans:
Health plans are sending hundreds of thousands of cancellation letters to people who buy their own coverage, frustrating some consumers who want to keep what they have and forcing others to buy more costly policies.
The main reason insurers offer is that the policies fall short of what the Affordable Care Act requires starting Jan. 1. Most are ending policies sold after the law passed in March 2010. At least a few are cancelling plans sold to people with pre-existing medical conditions. …
But the cancellation notices, which began arriving in August, have shocked many consumers in light of President Barack Obama’s promise that people could keep their plans if they liked them.
Florida Blue, for example, is terminating about 300,000 policies, about 80 percent of its individual policies in the state. Kaiser Permanente in California has sent notices to 160,000 people – about half of its individual business in the state. Insurer Highmark in Pittsburgh is dropping about 20 percent of its individual market customers, while Independence Blue Cross, the major insurer in Philadelphia, is dropping about 45 percent.…
“The arithmetic is inescapable,” said Patrick Johnston, chief executive officer of the California Association of Health Plans. Costs must be spread, so while some consumers will see their premiums drop, others will pay more — “no matter what people in Washington say.”…
Blue Shield of California sent roughly 119,000 cancellation notices out in mid-September, about 60 percent of its individual business. About two-thirds of those policyholders will see rate increases in their new policies, said spokesman Steve Shivinsky.
Jake responded that he had asked Barack Obama about this promise, back in June, 2009. Here’s the transcript of that question, and our Dear Reader’s tap dance of an answer. The Con-Artist-in-Chief lies through his teeth again, saying “when I say if you have your plan and you like it, and your doctor has a plan — or you have a doctor and you like your doctor, that you don’t have to change plans, what I’m saying is the government is not going to make you change plans under health reform.” (emphasis mine)
But of course, the federal government’s actions are the reason that thousands are losing the health insurance coverage that they like because of Obamacare’s top-down, one-size-fits-all determination of the “essential” benefits that every insurance policy must include. “Maternity benefits,” for example, are considered essential. On its face, that’s ridiculous. Do women over 50 need maternity benefits? Of course not, but their policies have to include them.
@jaketapper Thx. Think u need to ask him again. In '09, speculation. Now reality is that thousands have lost coverage they liked

I responded to Jake Tapper that he needs to ask again because what was speculation in 2009 is now reality. I don’t think he’ll get another chance to ask the One. As we all know, he isn’t fond of answering difficult questions about all the lies that he’s told. He’d rather spend his time doing TelePrompTer readings before audiences of ga-ga backward children on college campuses. He should ask someone. Maybe Nurse Ratched aka Sec. of HHS Kathleen Sebelius could come on his show and rehearse some of the deceptive and devious BS she is planning to recite during Congressional hearings.

Does Barack Obama believe the bizarre delusion things that he tells “journalists,” which they don’t question?
Why did the media ignore the truth about Matthew Shepard, even though ABC’s Elizabeth Vargas reported it in 2004?

Yesterday the Lame Stream Media was all atwitter, in full thrill up leg mode, about the brilliance of our Dear Reader’s skillful handling of the situation in Syria. As usual, their blind, fanatical embrace of the cult of the personality they created around this empty suit blinds them from what just happened; specifically, Putin outsmarted Obama again. Obama, pick up your jock. We’ll unpack it for you on today’s show.
Women are increasingly accepting the fact that when it comes to protecting themselves, firearms are the great equalizer. We are delighted to welcome Jan Morgan, Nationally Recognized 2nd Amendment Advocate/Speaker, NRA Certified Firearms Instructor, NRA Certified Range Safety Officer, State Certified Concealed Carry Instructor, and founder of Armed American Woman, (a national firearms training program for women).

Should be fun!
Some of the most zealous supporters of the Obamacare health care scheme were the leaders of large labor unions. Last week, their displeasure over the unintended, but very predictable, consequences of this heinous legislation erupted into public view. Now they want an exemption, making me think “what if you find out that the chef and head waiter at the restaurant don’t eat there?”
