On the docket today:
Why Does the Left Hate Free Speech?
Liberals squeal like pigs over the Supreme Court’s latest campaign finance decision, failing to explain how they could support Barack Obama, who sanctimoniously supported public financing for presidential campaigns, then, after discovering that using his black skin privilege and celebutard appeal, he could raise $1 billion, chose to reject it. How can anyone who voted for this phony liar speak out against money in politics? This braying jackass is the poster child for it!
Meanwhile, the Gay Gestapo whacks another one who dared to oppose their relentless agenda. Do you realize how we reached this point? It didn’t happen overnight. If you’ve forgotten, or don’t know, we’ll unpack that.
Why Does the Left Hate Science?
On the show a couple of weeks ago we described the unfortunate blathering of a vacuous actress, who because she’s married to Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler has a megaphone, about her decision to expose her children, other people’s children, to serious diseases. Now, thanks to other well-intentioned, but uninformed people like her, measles is making a comeback in some communities. The Left continues to bleat junk science about not only vaccines, but “climate change.” Why?
The Truth about Obamacare’s Phony Victory of 7.1 million Signups
Actually, according to Rand, only about 800,000 of the people who signed up were previously uninsured. For this we are in the process of destroying our health care system, one that the vast majority of people found satisfactory, if imperfect? The One was in full Alinsky mode earlier this week, telling more whoppers, including the hilarious one that the Regime didn’t make a “hard sell” on Obamacare.
Tune in today for the rest of the story.
It’s not what you know. It’s who you know, right?
Speaking of what you know, Justice Elena Kagan’s questions during the Hobby Lobby oral argument exposes her as a clueless political hack.
Bill Maher pwns his liberal panel by telling them that quote from Paul Ryan was actually from Moochelle Obama. Hilarity ensues.
We know that Obamacare the mother of all income redistribution programs, giving free stuff to the takers courtesy of the makers, but is it also a transfer of wealth from the fit to the fat? (Discuss among yourselves.) I think it is. Consider the typical land orca you see waddling around the mall, an adult-onset diabetes, hypertension, COPD case waiting to happen. I thought the health insurance mandate was all about “personal responsibility.” How is it responsible for these lard asses to eat themselves into preventible diseases that everyone else has to pay for?
Startling Rift on Supreme Court Springs From Error by Kagan On Text of Obamacare Law – The New York Sun (Betsy McCaughey exposes Justice Kagan’s stunning ignorance about the ACA. Perhaps she gets all of her information from the brilliant Jeffrey Toobin). Really irony at play here is that dem Senators who submitted brief in support of federal government’s persecution of Hobby Lobby, spewing demagoguery about “a right” to employer-provided contraception deliberately avoided that question by one of those infamous “as the Secretary shall determine” provisions of this steaming pile of excrement.
New G.O.P. Bid to Limit Voting in Swing States – NYTimes.com Liberal Death Star reports on evil Republicans’ efforts to make voting more difficult by doing heinous things like requiring ID and reducing number of days for early voting. Meanwhile, as next story shows, Dems want to make it easier, as in making sure everyone, even people who don’t want to, votes democrat, whether they know they are doing so.)
Local couple upset after receiving pre-marked voter registration card from Covered California – 10News.com KGTV ABC10 San Diego (shockingly, the party box checked was “democratic”)
Leland Yee, the Kochs, and the Press | National Review Online (why are liberals motives never questioned? Al Gore has made a fortune based on his “Earth has a fever” scam. Warren Buffett receives praise for opposing the Keystone pipeline without anyone mentioning that he makes big bucks from his rail business transporting oil. Now, this CA state senator, Mr. Yee, who is also Mr. Gun Control, arrested for trying to broker an illegal arms deal. If he were a Republican, the stories would all be about how he supported gun control because it’s good for his illegal arms business.)
OBAMA’S DE FACTO AMNESTY MUCH WORSE THAN WE THOUGHT
Sessions Report Demolishes Obama ‘Deporter In Chief’ Myth (Through 3 executive orders, Obama has nullified our immigration laws.)
Biden dishes on romance, skincare with Rachael Ray (Can’t wait for this appearance, can you?)
SECOND AMENDMENT UPDATE
Replica bullets, dud shell earn weapons conviction for former Washington man | Fox News (Law abiding businessman convicted of “attempted possession of unlawful ammunition.” Seriously)
FLASHBACK: David Gregory violates DC gun laws, gets off scot free. Coincidentally, his wife is a prominent DC lawyer and friend of the guy who decided not to charge him. (see posts below for more about that)
LIBERAL HYPOCRISY FILE
Bill Maher pwns his guests by reading them a quote that he says came from Paul Ryan, but which really comes from Moochelle Obama. Black comedian does a 180 on the alleged “racism” of the comment, and explains “she was talking to black people — we talk to each other differently than we talk in front of you.”
LISTEN LIVE HERE, 5-7 PM EASTERN, SUNDAY 3-30-14.
Tomorrow is the “deadline” for us serfs to submit ourselves to Barack Obama’s massive income redistribution scheme, the Orwellian named “Affordable Care Act, which, of course, is not affordable for the vast majority of Americans and has nothing to do with improving their health care.
Obamacare is designed to address a problem that most Americans didn’t think existed; specifically, the “unfairness” that resulted from the fact that some people made bad lifestyle choices. How mean and unfair was it that people who finished school, waited until they were married to have children, and lived the traditional “Leave it to Beaver” life in their “cushy” suburbs got health insurance at their jobs as part of their compensation? Think about it: the unmedicated mental patient, released at the insistence of the ACLU, swearing under his breath as he pushes his shopping cart, his stench signaling his arrival, didn’t have health insurance. Neither did the serial baby mama and her various sperm donors. Thanks to our Dear Reader, that unfairness is being fixed. Everyone, except of course, the Regime and their cronies, who will continue to receive the absolute finest and most costly of everything, including medical care.
The Lame Stream Media has a self-imposed gag order on discussing the Obamacare debacle, including the many lawless unilateral nullifications of the One’s “signature” achievement, preferring to discuss Chris Christie, the missing Malaysian plane, and the upcoming baseball season, anything to avoid the ACA train wreck. They certainly aren’t asking whether Justice Elena Kagan embarrassed herself during last week’s Hobby Lobby argument, by revealing that she hasn’t read the law. We will.
They are also avoiding any discussion of the information revealed last week by Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), which contains the jaw-droppingly disturbing truth about Barack Obama as the “deporter in chief.” Actually, he has unilaterally nullified our immigration laws with his infamous pen, resulting in de facto amnesty for millions. Si se puede, Bitter Clinger!

Our great esteemed Dear Reader, Barack Hussein Obama, praise be his name, seeing the suffering inflicted on millions of Americans by the Affordable Care Act, has decided to rescue them with another wave of his might hand. From the Washington Post:
The Obama administration has decided to give extra time to Americans who say that they are unable to enroll in health plans through the federal insurance marketplace by the March 31 deadline.
Federal officials confirmed Tuesday evening that all consumers who have begun to apply for coverage on HealthCare.gov, but who do not finish by Monday, will have until about mid-April to ask for an extension.
Under the new rules, people will be able to qualify for an extension by checking a blue box on HealthCare.gov to indicate that they tried to enroll before the deadline. This method will rely on an honor system; the government will not try to determine whether the person is telling the truth.
The rules, which will apply to the federal exchanges operating in three dozen states, will essentially create a large loophole even as White House officials have repeatedly said that the March 31 deadline was firm. The extra time will not technically alter the deadline but will create a broad new category of people eligible for what’s known as a special enrollment period. (emphasis mine)
The use of Orwellian language is a hallmark of the Left’s never-ending deceit, and this “special enrollment period” is yet another example. It was only about two weeks ago that the Regime said that, as the Weekly Standard reports, they didn’t have the the “statutory authority” to extend the deadline for signups. That’s right, and that’s still true. It’s not an extension. It’s a “special enrollment period.” Get it?
A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet
Back in the heyday of the circus, when something untoward took place within one of the rings, or within view of the audience, something that was best unseen by the paying public, the ringmaster would shout: “Send in the clowns.” The antics of the clowns served as a way to direct the attention of the audience away from the bad scene until whatever the problem was was cleared up. An astute observer, however, would know that when the clowns suddenly appeared out of place in the program format, something which was not a part of the program was occurring. I thought of that as I watched and read of Mr. Putin referring to Mr. Obama and Mr. Kerry as “pranksters.” It’s just another word for a “joker,” a clown. I have to thank Mr. Putin for finally saying out loud what we have been telling folks for years now, that much of the world views Mr. Obama as a joke. We should note also that Israel’s Defense Minister, Moshe Ya’alon, has Mr. Kerry’s number as well. “On Monday, Ya’alon attacked the United States for failing to lead the campaign against Iran. “But at some stage the United States entered into negotiations with them, and unhappily, when it comes to negotiating at a Persian bazaar, the Iranians were better,” said Ya’alon, speaking during an event at Tel Aviv University, as reported by Haaretz. At one point, the defense minister had said: “Look what’s happening in Ukraine, where the United States is demonstrating weakness, unfortunately.” Of course, our thin skinned Mr. Kerry is demanding an apology from Ya’alon. And get this: Kerry did not call Ya’alon. No he called Ya’alon’s boss, Bibi Netanyahu, the Israeli Prime Minister, to complain. That act alone should tell you everything you need to know about Mr. Kerry’s attitude — and — should go a very long way in explaining how the US continues to get the dirty end of the stick in international negotiations. You can read the entire article here: http://www.haaretz.com/news/diplomacy-defense/.premium-1.580796 This story just underlines the fact that Obama and his minions may be able, on occasion, to dish it out, but they sure as heck can’t take it! Somehow, I get a vivid picture in my mind of the ring master, Mr. Obama, bathed in the glare of a spotlight, in the center ring, wearing his silk top hat, red swallow-tailed coat, jodhpur breeches, and shiny black patent leather knee boots, holding a coiled bull whip and shouting to some of the lesser lights around him to: “Send in the clowns!” Let’s face it folks. Our government has been more like a three ring circus since the Obama train pulled in and they strutted their parade to the White House and the Congress at the other end of the street. Someone (I don’t know who.) once wisely said: “When you put the clowns in charge, don’t be surprised when a circus breaks out!” There is much truth in that observation. We’ve experienced a real three ring circus under Obama’s big top for five years now. It appears from this vantage point that things will only get worse over the remaining years of his tenure. A depressing thought that has burdened me a great deal of late is the fact that so much time will be needed to repair the damage Obama and his Socialist/Marxist minions in the Congress have wrought that getting the country back on its proper course will necessarily be delayed. I often think how difficult it is going to be to extricate America from the socialist dung heap the Democrats, with Obama in the lead, have buried the country. One of our Founding Fathers and early Presidents, Thomas Jefferson, said: “The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work, and give to those who would not.” Think about what Jefferson said when the Democrats speak of wealth redistribution and inequality of income. It is astounding, Dear Reader, at how far from the foundation of our country we have wandered. The same President, I quoted above, Thomas Jefferson, in his very first Inaugural address said the following: “What more is necessary to make us a happy and a prosperous people? Still one thing more, fellow citizens, a wise and frugal Government, which shall restrain men from injuring one another, shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government.” — Thomas Jefferson’s First Inaugural A few days ago, as I read that President Obama was making yet another change n the Obamacare law without any input, or permission from the people’s Congress, I remembered what the man often referred to as the Father of the Constitution, and an early President said about laws that were too big to be read, like the 2700 plus pages of the Obamacare law. James Madison said this about such laws and about multiple changes to laws: “It will be of little avail to the people that the laws are made by men of their own choice if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood; if they be repealed or revised before they are promulgated, or undergo such incessant changes that no man, who knows what the law is today, can guess what it will be tomorrow.” Makes one wonder how President Madison was able to see down through the centuries to today’s Obamacare law, doesn’t it? About those clowns … A recent report in the press stated that the US is running out of clowns. Apparently, the researchers for that particular article overlooked the US Senate, US House, and the Oval Office, not to mention the various cabinet level secretariats. It’s bad enough that America’s leadership is viewed as clowns around the world, but, it angers me that the American people are held in the same disregard as our dopey government functionaries. But then I remember, we DID elect them and tough as it is to admit, the responsibility DOES fall on us. On the bright side, we can clean up the mess. We have an election coming up in just over seven months. It’s time to clean the House and purge the Senate. We CAN take our government back and we can begin this coming November. J. D. Longstreet
Thanks again to Prof. Paul Kengor for returning to the show to talk about his TERRIFIC new book, 11 Principles of a Reagan Conservative. It would make an ideal graduation gift for a youngster!
We didn’t have time to play the three excerpts of the Paul Kengor interview. Here the whole thing here.
