Video: Obamacare Architect Said Law Passed Thanks To Lack Of Transparency, Stupid Voters

It’s nice to see progressives attempt to step out of the closet and pretend to be transparent.

Home-Column-1-Gruber

Perhaps the Gruber was asleep when Obama’s Health Care Denial and Rationing program was rammed through the Democrat held house and Senate behind closed doors, in the dead of night by those who voted on it but never read it.

Perhaps MIT Economist, Joathan Gruber, doesn’t see the Republican land side on Tuesday November 4th as a complete repudiation of Obama and his socialist policy, not to mention his equally failed foreign policy.

MIT economist Jonathan Gruber helped to craft the dreaded law known as Obamacare. Video of Gruber talking about how the law was passed has surfaced. In the video he explained how the law only passed because there was a lack of transparency in the process. Oh, and voters are stupid.

“Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage,” says the MIT economist who helped write Obamacare. “And basically, call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically that was really, really critical for the thing to pass.”

He also said the bill was “written in a tortured way to make sure CBO did not score the mandate as taxes. If CBO scored the mandate as taxes, the bill dies.”

He also doesn’t regret the lack of transparency, because he’s “rather have this law” than have lawmakers be honest with the American people.

For Pelosi, Feinstein and Boxer, D.C. is now a bleak landscape

Despite her wild prognostication that the democrats would remain in control of the Senate following the November 4th elections, it appears Nancy Pelosi’s career is burnt toast.

It would not be surprising to see her and many of her colleagues retire rather than spend another two years as the minority party.

California’s top three Democrats in Washington — all of them older than 70 and all with outsized influence on national policy that took decades to achieve — woke up Wednesday to crippled prospects and questions about their future in politics.

With the Republicans’ Senate takeover, Sen. Barbara Boxer, who turns 74 this month and must decide whether to run for re-election in two years, will hand the helm of the environment committee to outspoken climate-science denier Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein, 81, must relinquish the gavel of the Intelligence Committee, where she became a national heavyweight on defense policy and oversaw a years-long investigation into torture under the Bush administration that has yet to be made public.

But the stakes may be highest for former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, 74, of San Francisco, the city where she retains deep roots and where she began her ascent more than 25 years ago to become the highest-ranking female politician in U.S. history.

The loss of at least 13 House seats in Tuesday’s elections gave Republicans their most lopsided majority in more than 80 years. That could dash Pelosi’s dream of serving again as speaker, next to the first female president, should her friend Hillary Rodham Clinton decide to run and win.

“The most difficult news for Democrats on Tuesday wasn’t the loss of the Senate,” said Dan Schnur, a veteran Republican campaign strategist and director of the Jesse Unruh Institute of Politics at the University of Southern California. “Rather, it was the additional losses in the House, because that makes the prospect of getting a majority back in 2016 much less likely.”

Dem state senator’s husband busted while stealing GOP lawn signs

It’s become axiomatic, with their history of failed programs, the democrats must result to having dead voters still on the rolls vote, use programmed voting machines that switch Republican votes to Democrat, have their cadre register in multiple locations so they can vote more than once and now a new low, stealing campaign signs.

Just as a fish rots from the head down, so too does a political party that depends on the votes of ineligible aliens and that fights tooth-and-nail against the sort of voter identification measures common in other advanced (and not-so-advanced) democracies.

The ethos, one that predates Obama by a century or more, has filtered down to the local level, for instance a contest for the Delaware State Senate (hat tip: The Blaze).

king-street-patriots-doctored-photo

In the town of Middletown, GOP lawn signs bearing the slogan “Fix the Economy! Vote Republican” had been disappearing, so GOP volunteers set up a surveillance operation and caught the miscreant, who happened to be the husband of an incumbent state senator, one Sen. Bethany Hall-Long.

The video, embedded below is hilarious, especially the thief’s denial that anyone owns them. It is a classic good guys versus bad guy situation.

“We got you, brother! We got the license plate, your face, and everything,” one of the volunteers says in the video.

And based on the evidence, an arrest warrant has been issued for Dana Amon Long. Delaware Online reports:

Police identified the suspect as Dana Armon Long, of the 100 block of Saint Augustine Court near Middletown. Police confirmed he is the husband of the state senator, a Democrat. The warrant was issued for theft under $1,500.

Why Republicans Should Never Play Nice with Democrats


crew-2231Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.

Interesting points covered below. 

One major overriding theme, is that few Democrats stand for the protection of the U.S. Constitution.

They have also failed to learn a very important lesson while they use their “hate speech below.

Their delusions, many of which become programs signed into law are typically abject failures.

A quick view of each position presented below by a Democrat shows that each utterance is a projection of their own “feelings and actions.”

The issue has been the inability of my message to penetrate the Republican base so that they feel persuaded that I’m not the caricature that you see on Fox News or Rush Limbaugh, but I’m somebody who is interested in solving problems and is pretty practical, and that, actually, a lot of the things we’ve put in place worked better than people might think.

Castigating Republicans as unreasonable rhetoricians interested only in pandering to their base has become the entire Democratic 2014 campaign strategy. If the GOP will not work with Obama because they are cruel and nasty, the logic goes, the only solution is to vote them out of Congress.

It’s not working. One of the reasons it isn’t working: Democrats are truly the party of over-the-top demonization of their opposition. Here are the top five examples from the last few months alone:

Nancy Pelosi Says Republicans Will End Civilization. On Friday, Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) stated that Democrats had to retain control of the Senate. Why? Because “civilization as we know it today would be in jeopardy if the Republicans win the Senate.” She then claimed that Democrats were not “fear-mongers,” but instead “messengers of hope.”

TV host Bill Maher listened to this with a straight face.

Pelosi Says Republicans Hate Children. In March 2014, Pelosi stated that Republicans hate kids:

I asked a Republican friend why his party remains so opposed to extending the vital lifelines for struggling families and really hungry children. This colleague’s response was telling in its blunt nature and it’s stunning in its honestly. What he said was to the Republican caucus, these people you are talking about are invisible, and the Republican caucus is indifferent to them. Invisible and indifferent. This is just plain wrong.

There are two lies here: first, that Pelosi has any Republican friends, and second, that Republicans hate kids. Given her ardent advocacy for abortion-until-birth, the opposite would seem to be more likely.

Debbie Wasserman Schultz Says Scott Walker Beats Women. The head of the Democratic National Campaign Committee, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL), said last week that Republican Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker “has given women the back of his hand. I know that is stark. I know that is direct.

But that is reality.” Just to clarify that she wasn’t misspeaking, Wasserman Schultz continued: “What Republican Tea Party extremists like Scott Walker are doing is they are grabbing us by the hair and pulling us back. It is not going to happen on our watch.” She had no comment on Bill Clinton or Ted Kennedy.

Harry Reid Calls Tea Partiers Anarchists. The Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid (D-NV), isn’t the only Democrat to attack Tea Parties – for years, high-ranking Democrats all the way up to the White House have suggested that Tea Partiers are racists and terrorists. In September 2013, Reid called conservatives “anarchists” and “fanatics” for opposing Obamacare.

The Democratic Party’s White Voter Problem: And A Lot Bigger Problems Than They Are Willing to Let On


crew-2231Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.

The Democrats have far bigger problems than the loss of white voters.

They will be filled by a major backlash from the millennial generation, many of whom are college graduates with loans to pay who can’t find a decent job and must live with their parents.

Traditionally voter turn out is poor for non presidential elections.

 

 

RepublicansGOPStomppingonObamaAgendaCartoonNot so, for members of the Republican party who are salivating to throw the democrat bums out of office.

Nope there won’t be 4 million unenthused Romney voters who sat out rather than vote. 

The Democrats are set to be trounced as they should be in both 2014- and 2016.

Hardly a week goes by without some Democratic Party hack putting finger to iPad and swiping out a screed about the Republican Party’s problem with women or minorities.

 

This week it was Debbie Wasserman Schultz with “The GOP’s Woman Problem.”

 

Schultz claims that the Republican Party was “rejected again by a bloc of voters that make up more than half of the electorate.” That claim is as real as Schultz’s hair color. The only bloc that rejected Romney was the same bloc that rejected Hillary; the bloc of minority voters who came out in force for Obama.

And unless Hillary Clinton also had a “woman problem” they didn’t do it over gender.

For example in the South Carolina Democratic primary, Obama beat Hillary among women by 54 to 30. That’s a much bigger split than the one between Obama and Romney among women. While Hillary Clinton beat Obama among white voters, Obama won 78 percent of the black vote,

There was no gender gap. There was a racial gap.

Could the next generation of Republicans already be here?

For those students who managed to pay any attention to the ramblings of their left-wing professors, they know one thing for certain and Obama has driven it into their brains.

So-called wonderful intentions on progress don’t create jobs which they so desperately need to begin their career pathway.

But in contrast with our image of decadent, self-centered, pleasure-craving youth, in many ways today’s youngsters are throwbacks — spurning drugs, crime and disorder, being sexually responsible and making sound choices about education.

They might be the least disaffected, least rebellious kids since the Kennedy years. And that might have surprising political implications down the road.

A July 12 Economist piece reviewed some surprising data, finding that (contrary to popular belief) teen drinking and binge drinking have fallen sharply in recent years. The percentage of high-school seniors who have ever taken alcohol, for instance, fell from 80% to 71% from 2000 to 2010.

In 1980, that figure was 93%. Asked whether they’d had a drink in the last 30 days, only 41% said yes in 2010. In 2000, it was 50% and in 1980, 72%. Similarly, the teen pregnancy rate is slightly more than half what it was in the mid-1990s, and teens are waiting longer to have sex than they did then.

Violent-crime arrests for people from 10 to 24 are half what they were in 1995 (for males) and down 40% for females. Juvenile incarceration is at its lowest rate since 1975. Teen smoking peaked around 1997 and is now, at an all-time low of 17%, less than half of what it was then.

Is Michelle running for the Senate?


crew-2231Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.

Several questions  immediately come to mind.

Could Mooch handle the step down from royalty and why in the world would she want to live in Chicago when she could become a baroness in a Detroit ghetto where she and what’s his name belong?

The White House Dossier

By Keith Koffler

June 5, 2014

michelle walking in“She be graceful”

First Lady Michelle Obama is everywhere. She’s traveling to China. She’s raising money for Democrats. She’s issuing plaintive tweets seeking the rescue of the kidnapped Nigerian girls.

She’s wading uncharacteristically deep into the Washington political mud pit to defend her school lunch program against Republicans, assailing them last Tuesday for opting to “play politics with our kids’ health.”

She struck a similar tone in a New York Times op-ed two days later, accusing Republicans of trying to “override science” and suggesting they join parents and “put our children’s interests first.”

So what’s with the bolder profile?

Sure,  Obama cares strongly about the things she is doing. That she does care in fact begs another question: Is caring all that’s going on here? Does she have political ambitions that would allow her to pursue an agenda while working to cement her husband’s legacy?

michelle -- nutriation factsSpeculation about a possible political future for Michelle Obama has naturally centered on the White House. But that’s the wrong place — at least for now.

Illinois has a Republican senator, Mark Kirk, and he is up for reelection in 2016. He’ll be formidable, particularly given his brave recovery from a stroke. But Illinois is a heavily Democratic state, and the race could be close.

No Illinois Democratic candidate would bring the star power and nationwide fundraising capacity that Obama would.

She has proven herself a superb speaker on behalf of her pet projects and is now a veteran campaigner for her husband. She’s also remained highly popular — even as the president’s ratings have plummeted.

She could represent the Democrats’ best chance to pick up a desperately needed — and winnable — seat. A December 2012 Public Policy Polling survey put her ahead of Kirk, 51 percent to 40 percent. Democratic leaders’ pressure on her to run  might get intense.

michelle in gardenBut the most acute pressure could come from within. Anyone who has listened to her speeches, particularly on the campaign trail, understands that she is a dedicated liberal, who believes unreservedly in the power of government to transform lives.

Obama views the battle between Republicans and Democrats as a struggle for the soul of the nation.

“Who are we?” she repeatedly asked while campaigning in 2012. She said the election result would affect the country “for decades.”
