Liberals Talk Race and Crime – And Hilarity Ensues!
by Ann Coulter
You’re welcome, black America!
In Slate, Emma Roller wearily recounted other episodes of black-on-white violence in order to announce: “The ‘Knockout Game’ is a myth.”
Ezekiel 40:2-4 (Tanukh – Navi)
2 In the visions of G-d brought He me into the land of Israel, and set me down upon a very high mountain, whereon was as it were the frame of a city on the south.
3 And He brought me thither, and, behold, there was a man, whose appearance was like the appearance of brass, with a line of flax in his hand, and a measuring reed; and he stood in the gate.
4 And the man said unto me: ‘Son of man, behold with thine eyes, and hear with thine ears, and set thy heart upon all that I shall show thee, for to the intent that I might show them unto thee art thou brought thither; declare all that thou seest to the house of Israel.’
Revelation 11:1-3 (AKJV)
1 And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein.
2 But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.
3 And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.
A small but growing movement by Jewish activists demanding the right to pray at the site of their destroyed temple, in the heart of this disputed capital’s Old City, is creating a potentially explosive clash with the Muslim world, which considers the spot holy and bans Jews from public worship there.
Each week, hundreds of Jews ascend the creaky wooden ramp built above the Western Wall and enter what is often called the most contested real estate on Earth. Many then embark upon a game of hide-and-seek with their police escorts — whispering forbidden prayers while pretending to talk into cellphones, and getting in quick but banned bows by dropping coins and then bending to pick them up.
Their proposals, long dismissed as extremist, are now being debated in the Israeli parliament and embraced by an expansionist wing in the ruling coalition government of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
These political leaders, many in Netanyahu’s party, want Israel to assert more, not less, control over the West Bank, East Jerusalem and the Old City, including the place known to Jews as the Temple Mount and to Muslims as Haram al-Sharif, or the Noble Sanctuary.
“We’re looking for it to be divided between Jews and Muslims,” said Aviad Visoli, chairman of the Temple Mount Organizations, which claims 27 groups under its umbrella. “Today, Jews realize the Western Wall is not enough. They want to go to the real thing.”
Two millenniums ago, this place was the site of the Jews’ Second Temple, destroyed in A.D. 70 by Roman legions under Titus, who cast the Jews into exile. The Western Wall, visited by 10 million people a year, is part of the remaining rampart built around the raised temple complex. Together, the wall and the site of the destroyed temple are the holiest landmarks in Judaism.
The same courtyard is home to al-Aqsa mosque, one of the oldest in Islam, and the Dome of the Rock, the golden landmark where tradition says the prophet Mohammad made his night journey to heaven.
For Palestinians and much of the Muslim world, any mention of changing the status quo at the site, the third-holiest in Islam, is incendiary. Protecting al-Aqsa has been a rallying cry for generations.
“This place belongs to the Muslim people, and no others have the right to pray here,” said Sheik Azzam al-Khatib, director of the Waqf, the Islamic trust that administers the site. Khatib said the mosque is a unifying symbol for the world’s 1.2 billion Muslims.
It’s no secret I don’t much care for muzzies. Long before 9/11, I knew what they were, and have never had any use for the murderous, pedophile worshiping, thugs. That aside, the fact of the matter is…. their pedophile prophet NEVER STEPPED FOOT IN JERUSALEM! The claim of the muzzies over this piece of real estate is TOTALLY FALSE!
There is archaeological proof that the Temple stood in this spot, and should be rebuilt. The Jews have every right to worship in the holiest place of their faith, and for these thugs to deny them is an abomination. They, the muzzies, offer their own children as sacrifices to their fake god. How much more proof does the world need? The fact that the Jews haven’t blown up that dome says a great deal about their patience. They’ll know when the time comes to begin rebuilding, and The Temple Institute will be ready.

Yep! I’m sick to death of, not just Obamadontcare, but of Obama himself. He speaks, I cringe. I know it’s just going to be more BS spewing out of his mouth, and I’m really tired of it! This is a failed ‘law’, a failed website, and a failed presidency!
Did you ever see the movie They Live? People had to put on special glasses to see the truth. Well, now it’s the opposite. People need to take OFF their rose colored glasses to see it, and it ain’t pretty!
Obama has been trying to put lipstick on this pig, but yep….it’s still a pig! Pretty speeches to adoring droolers won’t make it change. It’s time for Obama and crew to admit the truth! When, or should I say IF, Obama finally signs up for this lipsticked pig, will it cover HIS mental health issues? Cuz word is, he really IS nuttier than the proverbial fruitcake! I’m inclined to agree, cuz you know…liberalism IS a mental disorder!
Sick of Obamacare? We’ve Got Something Different
Amy Payne – The Foundry
The salesman in chief is back on the road.
President Obama will be spending the month of December once again explaining Obamacare to the American people. Because if he explains it one more time, maybe people will like it?
We expect these holiday greetings will go over about as well as a three-year-old fruitcake. Obama’s been selling the law for about that long, yet public opinion has turned against it.
The President said yesterday that he’s “learned not to make wild promises” anymore about the rollout of the health care law. But it’s clear he’s not going to stop making wild claims about Obamacare—and Obamacare’s critics.
Who Wants Repeal?
As we enjoy the holiday season, the President and congressional Democrats intend to warn the country that conservatives want to repeal Obamacare.
But according to a new poll, so do 50 percent of likely U.S. voters.
That’s right—there is broad support for repealing Obamacare and starting over with health care reform. So what happens then?
What Happens After Repeal?
President Obama and his allies have made no secret of their plans: They cast Obamacare skeptics as The Ones Who Want to Take You Back to the Health Care Dark Ages.
Unfortunately for Obama’s public relations push, conservatives have no such intention. Repealing Obamacare—and saving Americans from the law’s woes—is only the beginning of what we would like to see in American health care. It would merely get this monstrosity out of the way so that truly helpful reforms could begin.
Obama said yesterday that critics just want to “go back to the status quo” and that they “haven’t presented an alternative.”
This is laughable. Obamacare is hardly the only game in town. Heritage experts—and many other policy researchers—have been offering health reform ideas for decades. Heritage has specifically outlined an alternative to Obamacare.
So while the White House spends December selling Americans the same old stale (and failing) ideas, we’ll be looking forward (to borrow an Obama buzzword). We’ll be highlighting the ways Congress could do health care reform better—and what it would mean to you and your family.
You might have noticed, things seem to be running smoothly after the big upgrade by Bluehost. As best I can tell, no glitches from this end. I suppose I could have posted something last night, but ya know… I just didn’t feel like it!
I took a side trip to Wally World down in Corinth, and was quite surprised that there were no where near the number of people I expected, since this is the ‘shopping season’. Jeeez…I hate that term! This is NOT a shopping season, but we have sure turned it into one. This is the CHRISTmas season! Let’s get that RIGHT! Sheesh!
Anyway, I had to pick up some non fridge items to send to Afghanistan, and my latest ‘craving’…marshmallows, so I figured while I was in the area, why not! Besides, the tax is lower down there. Sadly, they have a state income tax, so that ruled out Mississippi when we decided to leave the frozen lands of Wisconsin. I suppose it all works out in the end, one way or another.
Good news from my foray into MS… my battery is good for another 2 years and 3 months. Heh. The bad news, I’ll have to go back down there again in another 3 months to make sure it’s still working. Apparently, I only had two incidents show up on my ticker readout, and they were fast beating. Told the nurse that’s likely when I was raking leaves. Heh. She agreed. Usually, there are incident of my dadburn heart stopping, which is why I need that internal mp3 player. The pumper is only 60% functional without it. sigh… If it’s not one thing, it’s another, eh? The heart, the spine issues, the nasty disease….oh well! I woke up this morning, and for that, I am grateful….to God!
So, while I was driving back from Corinth, I got to listen to the beginning of Mark Levin’s show. I just love him. Take no bull, says what he means, and gives a major slap down to whoever needs one! Ya gotta hear the show…at least his beginning monologue!
HealthCare.gov is racist! Heh! Just HAD to share this with ya!
Speaking of Obamacare, and seriously, lately, does anyone ever talk about anything else these days? Well, Michelle’s friends who ‘built’ this fiasco didn’t include any security into the site! Piece of advice, DO NOT EVEN TYPE THE WEB ADDRESS INTO YOUR COMPUTER! Jeeez! More than 3 years, and they still have a failed site, with no security? Let me ask….how long did it take for Amazon to create their site, and get it up and running, handling MILLIONS of customers, around the world? Don’t you think it would have been a good idea for the gubmint to contact the REAL experts, and get their advice, instead doing the crony thing, which is what Obama did in hiring a loser, FOREIGN company! Logic would say to shut down the site, and get it fixed before anyone has their identity stolen, and their lives ruined! But then, there is no logic in this administration, and they are spending OUR money to push for Obamacare, in another campaign to promote this disaster! Bottom line: They don’t give a damn! A REAL man, a REAL leader, would admit this was a mistake, and take responsibility. But then, we don’t have one of those in the White House, do we.
Please, for the love of all that’s holy, work to get the Dems out of the Senate, take more of their seats in the House. These people are going to kill me, and many like me, if we don’t get this Obama BS revoked! Want the problem solved? Allow people to buy insurance across state lines! Can you imagine the competition? Costs will decrease, and guess what! You don’t have to pay for something you don’t need….like maternity care…and the BIG prize…you won’t be forced to pay for the murder of children. Now, wouldn’t THAT be a novel concept? This idea has been proposed many times by those on the right, my own Congress critter, Mz Marsha has repeatedly introduce bills to do just that, but hey…the insurance lobbies are all about the big bucks, and they don’t want more competition.
So, the problem isn’t all Obama and his minions. It’s the lobbyists, and THEIR minions in both houses of Congress. They no longer work for us. They work for whoever donates the most money to their campaign coffers, who will reassure their re-election so they can take even MORE control of our lives. Ever get the feeling that something is SERIOUSLY out of whack? Yeah….me too!
Liberals laughed at the House in 2011 when they read the U.S. Constitution on the floor. There was a darn good reason for them to do that, but it really didn’t matter in the long run. The Constitution is just a piece of paper, written by old white guys a long time ago, and means nothing in their world. Well, it means a LOT in my world, and it should in yours as well. If we don’t get this country back on track, the way the Founders, you know, those old white guys, intended, we won’t have a country to get on any track but the one headed into the cesspool…the direction it is heading now!
I suppose all our concentrating on the Obamadontcare fiasco makes D.C. think we’ve all forgotten about the other scandals that have plagued this administration. Well, guess what! We have NOT forgotten! We well remember the murdered Americans in Benghazi. We haven’t forgotten the IRS targeting conservative groups. We remember OBAMA’S shut down of the government, his arrogance, the media pointing fingers at the WRONG people, and the disrespect shown to our greatest heroes. No, we have NOT forgotten!
Clint Howard, brother of Ron Howard the extreme lib….a conservative. Heh. MOST EXCELLENT! I bet family dinners are REAL interesting.
I don’t know what more I can say about Obamadontcare than I already have. It’s a fiasco, and only hurts the country, helping few, and destroying business. But then, wasn’t that Obama’s plan from the very beginning? Transforming America. What those who voted for him didn’t understand was what he planned to transform in to….a third world nation!
What Will Happen When (and If) HealthCare.gov Actually Works
Amy Payne – The Foundry
HealthCare.gov may or may not be working—for some people.
That seems to be the clearest assessment after the Obama Administration has flubbed two deadlines to get the Obamacare website working.
The disaster has spawned countless news stories and updates about the website’s progress. But here’s the most important story: HealthCare.gov can’t fix anything that’s wrong with Obamacare.
Even if it worked perfectly from Day 1, that would do Americans little good. A slick, smoothly functioning website couldn’t undo all the damage Obamacare has done and is doing.
Here are just six of the things HealthCare.gov couldn’t begin to fix.
FDR’s Vision Is Still Destroying America
“Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it.”
George Santayana (1863-1952)
A rose by any other name, argues Juliet, would smell as sweet. On the other hand, a pile of garbage…rotting in the sun, would still stink to high heaven. What they’re calling immigration reform is no rose!
The majority of our forefathers were immigrants, willing or unwilling. Most of the willing came to make a better lives for themselves and their families. The majority worked hard for a living, many became quite successful, many just made it day to day, but they all had one thing in common…they did not come to suck off the government teat!
I have covered this topic more than enough times, shared the story of my adoptive parents, some of my biological history, and no where was there an illegal in the bunch! I have no problem with people wanting to come to the U.S. who have something to contribute, legally. I have a HUGE problem with people, sneaking over the border, overstaying their visas, and taking what they did not earn from other who have lived the ‘American Dream’. They are NOT entitled to a damn thing. You want to come here, come through the front door, and you’ll be welcomed with open arms. Learn the language, assimilate to OUR society, and all will be well. Sneak in, demand ‘rights’, force language changes on signs, government documents, etc., and you will be shunned in all possible manners by those who came with their eyes open, not their hands out!
The so called POTUS gave time to illegals, protesting outside the White House, but shuns veterans who fought so he could steal elections, and force socialism down our throats. The priorities of this administration are way more than bassackwards! They are downright criminal! Why didn’t he have the buses lined up to return them to the border? He had NO problem locking out veterans who wanted to see THEIR memorials! A hypocrite, a liar, a….. words fail me. Spawn of Satan is the best I can do right now.
Separating families? No, don’t separate them. Ship the kids with the parents, since they were born here illegally because of the parents criminal activity! I’m not one who is big on the ‘sins of the fathers’, but in this case, I’ll make an exception.
Yes, I’m more than just a little angry. We should ALL be angry! This administration, and a few previous, has allowed the nation to be overrun by criminals from nations all around the world, and turns a blind eye to the injustice that is heaped upon law abiding citizens. Why? Power. Plain and simple. It’s all about the power. The problem is, the power does NOT belong to those in D.C. The power is OURS! Are we going to just hand it over, as we have been doing for the last 40 years? It’s past time to stand up!
Beware of Happy Talk on Immigration
Ken McIntyre – The Foundry
Is immigration reform coming back from the dead?
Over Thanksgiving, both President Obama and House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) have indicated that the issue —which has meant amnesty, by any other name—is alive on Capitol Hill.
Obama said last week that proponents of amnesty should be “thankful” for Boehner’s stated support for immigration reform and prompted laughter by comparing the complicated issue to a turkey that could be sliced up.
“It’s Thanksgiving. We can carve this bird into multiple pieces,” Obama quipped.
But the metaphor doesn’t really work.
