OBAMACARE: MAKE IT APPLY TO EVERYONE OR NO ONE!

Great line someone tweeted tonight.

Senator Ted Cruz is doing an awesome job!

There should be no law that benefits a few and burdens the rest of us.

When Dick Durbin proudly stated that "his employer" subsidized his health care by 75%...guess what, Dickie?

That 75% "your employer" is paying is us! The American taxpayers! And we do NOT want to subsidize YOUR health care AND pay for ours!!

DEFUND OBAMACARE NOW!

Sen. Cruz Speaking Now; RNC Launches "Stand With Ted" Petition

Flip over to CSPAN2 or their online digs to see Sen. Cruz speaking now.

Apparently CSPAN won't let you embed. Or I can't figure it out anyway. Just open in another window. He says he's going to talk until he cannot stand. This is an awareness-raising floor speech, not a true filibuster, as it doesn't push back the time for the first cloture vote which is set for tomorrow.

Townhall's Guy Benson has more on Cruz's speech, as well as the RNC's petition drive "Stand With Ted," launched simultaneously.

I know several folks were asking where Chairman Priebus was in all this. He wants you to sign the petition.

More: If you missed it this morning, the timeline for the next several days goes like this, with the Senate ultimately passing a CR of one sort or another on Sunday, giving the House just one day to respond. The timeline can change, however, if the parties unanimously waive the Senate rules, as has been discussed among the GOP conference this afternoon. They're considering agreeing to shorten the time for consideration in the Senate in order to get a CR back to the House faster.

And a little bit more: As you'd know if you listened to the AOSHQ podcast, I've been a little concerned that Sen. Reid could try and get cute with the Senate version of the CR and undo sequestration cuts. A staffer at the Senate GOP Budget committee press office got back to me:

17,679 THINGS THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT HAS DONE SINCE SEQUESTRATION...

Over at Reason.com they have taken the time to compile a list of a ton of things the Federal Government has done since sequestration...

17,679 things!!

As they say over at Reason.com:

Below is a listing of the 17,679 entries published in the Federal Register since sequestration took effect on March 1, 2013. The Federal Register doesn't capture everything the government has done, of course. But it gives an idea of what this austere, cut-to-the-bone budget has left intact. Click on the links for details about each announcement.

Go see for yourself...

and the next time some libturd tries to make some lame-ass point about how sequestration is 'undermining what makes America great'...point them to this article...

Lying liars...yep...that's libturds for ya...

TRADEOFF? NOT SO MUCH: "FREE" HEALTH CARE BUT BIG BROTHER GETS TO QUESTION YOUR SEX LIFE...

So how much is "free" health care really worth to you?

Enough to allow Obama to dictate that the next time you go to your doctor - for anything...a hangnail or anything else unrelated to your sex life - your doctor must ask you intrusive questions about your sexual activity...

From the New York Post:


‘Are you sexually active? If so, with one partner, multiple partners or same-sex partners?”
Be ready to answer those questions and more the next time you go to the doctor, whether it’s the dermatologist or the cardiologist and no matter if the questions are unrelated to why you’re seeking medical help. And you can thank the Obama health law.
“This is nasty business,” says New York cardiologist Dr. Adam Budzikowski. He called the sex questions “insensitive, stupid and very intrusive.” He couldn’t think of an occasion when a cardiologist would need such information — but he knows he’ll be pushed to ask for it.
The president’s “reforms” aim to turn doctors into government agents, pressuring them financially to ask questions they consider inappropriate and unnecessary, and to violate their Hippocratic Oath to keep patients’ records confidential.
Embarrassing though it may be, you confide things to a doctor you wouldn’t tell anyone else. But this is entirely different.
Doctors and hospitals who don’t comply with the federal government’s electronic-health-records requirements forgo incentive payments now; starting in 2015, they’ll face financial penalties from Medicare and Medicaid. The Department of Health and Human Services has already paid out over $12.7 billion for these incentives.
Dr. Richard Amerling, a nephrologist and associate professor at Albert Einstein Medical College, explains that your medical record should be “a story created by you and your doctor solely for your treatment and benefit.” But the new requirements are turning it “into an interrogation, and the data will not be confidential.”
Lack of confidentiality is what concerned the New York Civil Liberties Union in a 2012 report. Electronic medical records have enormous benefits, but with one click of a mouse, every piece of information in a patient’s record, including the social history, is transmitted, disclosing too much.
The social-history questions also include whether you’ve ever used drugs, including IV drugs. As the NYCLU cautioned, revealing a patient’s past drug problem, even if it was a decade ago, risks stigma.
On the other end of the political spectrum is the Goldwater Institute, a free-market think tank. It argues that by requiring everyone to have health insurance and then imposing penalties on insurers, doctors and hospitals who don’t use the one-click electronic system, the law is violating Americans’ medical privacy.
The administration is ignoring these protests from privacy advocates. On Jan. 17, HHS announced patients who want to keep something out of their electronic record should pay cash. That’s impractical for most people.
There’s one question they can’t ask: Thanks to the NRA, Section 2716 of the ObamaCare law bars the federal government from compelling doctors and hospitals to ask you if you own a firearm.
But that’s the only question they can’t be told to ask you. (my emphasis)
Where are the women’s rights groups that went to the barricades in the 1980s and 1990s to prevent the federal government from accessing a woman’s health records? Hypocritically, they are silent now.
Patients need to defend their own privacy by refusing to answer the intrusive social-history questions. If you need to confide something pertaining to your treatment, ask your doctor about keeping two sets of books so that your secret stays in the office. Doctors take the Hippocratic Oath seriously and won’t be offended.
Are such precautions paranoid? Hardly. WikiLeaker Bradley Manning showed how incompetent the government is at keeping its own secrets; incidents where various agencies accidentally disclose personal data like Social Security numbers are legion. And that’s not to mention the ways in which commercial databases are prone to hacking and/or exploitation.
Be careful about sharing your medical secrets with Uncle Sam.

What IS up with Obama repeatedly saying "my military"?

Isn't this the same guy that is overseeing paycuts for active military and retired benefits??



Not just once either...



A lot of people are catching him saying it...and they're not happy about it...

UPDATE: BIKERS ROAR INTO DC TO HONOR 9-11 VICTIMS AND PROTEST MUSLIM MARCH TODAY ON WASHINGTON MALL

The gall the muslims show by having their march today...on the 12th anniversary of September 11, 2001...

They have 364 other days in a year to have what they billed as a Million Muslim March...why today?

Luckily we have this!



Bikers from all over the country rode into Washington D.C. today in a show of support for the victims of 9-11...and to protest the muslim march on this day of all days...


There were very few people at the muslim event...which, in my humble opinion is a good thing...

I am grateful for every participant in the biker ride to our nation's capitol....

And...once again...as of this posting...not a WORD of this on any of the so-called media sites...the Washington Times had the article I linked to above...but what about CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC, NPR???

What are they afraid of?

Americans being patriotic?

SEPTEMBER 11 REDUX...BENGHAZI SEPTEMBER 11, 2012

THERE ARE NO WORDS...








The consulate consists of a main building and a nearby annex, each of which are protected by local Libyan guard force, a physical perimeter barrier and a ‘robust’ American security presence inside the compounds. All times are local Benghazi time, and accounts are from officials
10:00pm Tuesday - The main consulate building begins began taking fire from unknown Libyan extremists. There are about 25 to 30 employees in the consulate and the annex at the time of the attack.
10:15 pm - Attackers gain access to main consulate building and set compound on fire. In the ensuring chaos, many escape the building, but Stevens, Smith and a regional security officer remain inside. They become separated due to heavy smoke and confusion while trying to evacuate. The security officer makes it outside and he and others from the consulate and annex go back into the building to try to rescue Stevens and Smith. They find Smith dead and pull him out but are forced by the flames, smoke and gunfire to withdraw before they can locate Stevens.
10:45pm - A group of security officers from the annex try to take the consulate building back from the attackers, but they are repelled. Everyone rescued is brought to the annex.
Midnight - The annex comes under heavy fire from the attackers. The shooting lasts more than two hours during which the other two Americans are killed and two Americans are wounded.
2:30an Wednesday - Libyan and U.S. security forces retake the annex. Officials believe that Stevens got out or was pulled out of the main consulate building during the battle for the annex and was taken to the hospital. The officials do not know if Stevens was alive when he arrived at the hospital.
6:00am - U.S. officials are told that Stevens is dead but are not able to confirm it immediately because they have not seen the body. The body is returned to U.S. personnel at the Benghazi airport at dawn.
-----------------
It is still unbelievable to me that anyone can say the attack on Benghazi was not due to the 11th anniversary of 9-11-01.

2 MILLION BIKER RIDE IN D.C. TO PROTEST MUSLIM MARCH ON SEPTEMBER 11TH ANNIVERSARY

This is awesome....


A motorcycle rally prompted by a Muslim group’s plan to march on the Mall will go forward on the day the D.C. area and the nation mark 12 years since the Sept. 11 terrorism attacks.

Officials with 2 Million Bikers to DC said that despite failing to secure a permit from the National Park Service, the ride through the D.C. area will happen — even if it takes all day.

“We apologize to D.C. residents, but they had plenty of time to help us with this rally,” said Belinda Bee, national coordinator for the 2 Million Bikers to DC rally, referring to federal and local authorities. “We realized there was going to be a lot of traffic. We would have gotten through town in two hours. For some reason the powers that be in D.C. no longer feel Americans have the right to voice an opinion.”

The motorcycle rally’s Facebook page bills the event as a way to “remember those who were killed on 911 and honor our armed forces who fought those who precipitated this attack.”

Nearly 3,000 people died after terrorists hijacked jets on the morning of Sept. 11, 2001, and crashed them into the World Trade Center buildings in New York and the Pentagon in Arlington. Another hijacked plane headed for the District crashed in Shanksville, Pa.
Ms. Bee said the rally was planned as a way to protest the American Muslim Political Action Committee’s Million American March Against Fear, scheduled for noon.

“It was,” she said, noting that the focus was eventually broadened.

“We didn’t want a war,” she said. “No. 2, Muslims get enough attention. It’s time for America to get attention.” (my emphasis)

The Million American March Against Fear — originally called the Million Muslim March but rechristened after the name prompted widespread publicity earlier this year — was permitted by the National Park Service for 1,000 people for the location between 13th and 14th streets in Northwest, Park Service spokeswoman Carol Johnson said.

The nonstop ride would have required a police escort and closure of intersections and traffic lights, Ms. Johnson said.

After meeting with the D.C. and U.S. Capitol police departments, Ms. Johnson said, “we thought it would be too disruptive to close all these streets on a workday.”

“We told them we can’t stop them from using roads like anybody else, but they’d have to follow traffic laws if they come,” Ms. Johnson said, adding that politics played no part in the decision.

“Any time we get a permit application we look at our resources. It has to do with what you apply for, not the applicants,” she said.

Ms. Johnson said the permit for the march was received “quite a while ago,” while the motorcycle rally event was submitted for approval on Aug. 27.

Ms. Bee said the final route for rally participants would be handed out Wednesday morning for security reasons. Ms. Johnson said the route on the permit application went from Fort Washington to the 9/11 memorial at the Pentagon, over Memorial Bridge and to the Capitol via Constitution Avenue in Northwest.

The website for the Muslim rally says Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, Missouri Democrat, was among about two dozen scheduled speakers. A spokeswoman for Mr. Cleaver on Tuesday said the lawmaker had met with the American Muslim Political Action Committee but that he was neither speaking at nor attending Wednesday’s event.

Isa Hodge, chief of operations for the political action committee, said his organization extended a formal invitation to Ms. Bee’s group, “with an explanation of what we’re actually doing, and what this march is trying to say.”

“We do want to stand up and say we condemn violence, we’re standing here against terrorists,” said MD Rabbi Alam, founder of the political action committee. “We are pro-American, we are Muslim, we are pro-peace, and we condemn any kind of violence.”

Asked if the bikers planned on joining with the Muslim march, Ms. Bee said “certainly not. We would never.”

WHILE OBAMA STALLS MAKING DECISIONS, THE WORLD WATCHES...

Of course the world is watching what is going on...who wouldn't be fascinated with this train wreck?

From the UK Spectator

"Why zig-zagging Obama can't be taken seriously on Syria"

From the UK Telegraph

"In Syria, the best solution is a negotiated peace"

From the Financial Times

"A trap of the president's making"

From The UK Guardian

"Syria chemical weapons attack not ordered by Assad, says German press"

Even the L.A. Times is jumping on this bandwagon

"Critics see contradictions in Obama administration's Syria claims"
-------------------------

Obama has indeed painted himself into a corner...a corner devised and created from his own inability to make a decision and stick with it...

How many times over the last 5 years have we heard about something the "Obama White House" has decided to do...and when the outcry is loud enough to be heard across the nation...they suddenly reverse the decision...you almost expect to hear "we kid!"....

I don't know what Barack Hussein Obama thought he was signing on to when he seduced all those voters in 2008....

Did he seriously think that just because HE was in office that - as he said in his infamous speech - that the oceans would recede and all would be well in the world?

Liberals continue to amaze me...the world is not going to stop producing bad guys just because they sat around the campfire last night singing Kumbaya...

The reality is...there will always be good guys and bad guys...we all have the ability to choose which road to take...and for those of us that have sided with the good guys...we will always have to protect our families and homes from those 'other' guys...

Tossing a few missiles Assad's way is not going to change anything in Syria...it might just heat things up a bit more...or a lot more...but it's not going to stop the civil war that has been waging there for some time now...

Obama has to learn that if he says something he'd better be prepared to back it up...and back it up in a heartbeat...because that's all the time the bad guys give you when they have you in the crosshairs of THEIR guns...

John McCain's bobble-head response to the woman that is pleading with him to rethink his position on Syria is a disgrace...

I am ashamed to have this man "represent" Arizona in the United States Senate.

It is clear, when watching this video, that McCain is only biding his time...waiting for the poor woman to stop speaking...so he can tell her "I know better"...

The woman's family has lived in Syria for centuries...yet McCain had the audacity to tell her "I know the rebels...I know who they are..."

Oh really?  And exactly WHEN did you meet these rebels and get to know them so well, McCain?

The man goes over to Syria for a 3 day trip...mugs for photo ops...and tells this woman "he knows who the rebels are"...??

OBAMA: MY CREDIBILITY IS NOT ON THE LINE...THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY'S CREDIBILITY IS ON THE LINE...

In other words...

If I go down, I'm taking all ya'll with me...

STEVE HOLLAND, REUTERS: Have you made up your mind whether to take action against Syria whether or not you have a congressional resolution approved? Is a strike needed in order to preserve your credibility for when you set these sort of red lines? And were you able to enlist the support of the prime minister here for support in Syria?

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Let me unpack the question. First of all, I didn't set a red line. The world set a red line. The world set a red line when governments representing 98 percent of the world's population said the use of chemical weapons are abhorrent and passed a treaty forbidding their use even when countries are engaged in war. Congress set a red line when it ratified that treaty. Congress set a red line when it indicated that in a piece of legislation titled the Syria Accountability Act that some of the horrendous thing that are happening on the ground there need to be answered for. And so, when I said, in a press conference, that my calculus about what's happening in Syria would be altered by the use of chemical weapons, which the overwhelming consensus of humanity says is wrong, that wasn't something I just kind of made up. I didn't pluck it out of thin air. There was a reason for it. That's point number one. Point number two, my credibility is not on the line. The international community's credibility is on the line. And America and Congress' credibility is on the line because we give lip service to the notion that these international norms are important.

AMNESTY MEANS SPECIAL - NOT EQUAL - TREATMENT

I am posting an excerpt From Breitbart because I feel it is important to get this out in the echo chamber:

Peter Kirsanow, a member of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, told Breitbart News that Attorney General Eric Holder’s claims that amnesty for illegal immigrants is a civil rights issue “profoundly ahistorical.”

“If you take a look at the basis of the civil rights movement, it was to have blacks treated in all respects the same as whites or everybody else,” Kirsanow (pictured) said in a phone interview. “What amnesty is doing is setting aside a special class of individuals who are going to put forward and treated more favorably than others. In other words, they’ve already broken the law and are being given amnesty.  (my emphasis)
"In terms of immigration policy... it would severely affect the rights of blacks generally and all low-income Americans. What it is going to do is displace those individuals from the labor market.”
The U.S. Civil Rights Commission, Kirsanow said, has held extensive hearings in recent years detailing how amnesty would economically impact American workers, especially the black community.

OBAMA'S HISTORIC AMERICAN RETREAT...

From Breitbart:

With President Barack Obama’s announcement on Saturday that he will, after all, go to Congress for authorization to use force against the Assad regime in Syria, Syria is celebrating. President Bashar al-Assad stated that Syria could confront any action from foreign nations; his official al-Thawra newspaper wrote, “Obama announced yesterday, directly or through implication, the beginning of the historic American retreat.” Meanwhile, Syria’s deputy foreign minister Faisal Mekdad said that there was “a sense of hesitation and disappointment in what was said by President Obama yesterday. And it is also clear that there was a sense of confusion as well.”

Both Britain and France have backed away from bellicosity against the Syrian regime in recent days, with the British parliament voting against action on Thursday, and the French interior minister explaining, “France cannot go it alone.”
With the West telegraphing its punch, the Assad regime is preparing contingencies, the Syrian rebels now say. “As days go by, more people get killed by the hands of this regime,” Mohammad Aboud, deputy commander of eastern joint command of the Free Syria Army told Reuters. “Further delay for action gives them a chance to change the position of their weapons. According to the intelligence that we have, we know that he exploits this delay to prepare for this strike.”
--------------------
But we all know the real reason Obama has decided to go to Congress...

This is a man that has made a career out of never having anything tied to him...no decision is his...he considers himself, and declares so each day, that he is blameless for what goes on in our nation's capitol...
