Uninsured Americans reject Obamacare, By
John Nolte A new Gallup poll brings more terrible news for President
Obama and his signature health plan, showing that only 22% of uninsured
Americans who plan to buy insurance have visited the ObamaCare
exchanges. One of the major selling points for using ObamaCare to
disrupt our health care system (that polls showed up to 80% of
Americans were satisfied with) was to insure the uninsured. But
according to this poll, only a...
Reacts to Flawed Iranian Nuclear Deal
Verona, PA - Former U.S. Senator, former Republican presidential
candidate and Patriot Voices Chairman Rick Santorum issued the
following statement regarding the weekend announcement about Iran's
nuclear program: "This deal does nothing to dismantle Iran's nuclear
program. It provides vital resources for a ruthless regime to continue
to oppress its people, threaten its neighbors, support terrorism,
stabilize its economy, and violate ...
Obamacare Navigator Conspiring to Use Data for Political Purposes
By Cortney O'Brien - Nov 26, 2013 - Remember when James O’Keefe and his
Project Veritas exposed those supposedly nonpartisan Obamacare
navigators being unmistakeably partisan? Well, the watchdog group’s
investigation has already had some dire consequences for those caught
on camera. Chris Tarango, Texas Communications Director for Enroll
America, a Sebelius-linked group dedicated to signing people up for
Obamacare, resigned following a Project Veritas investigation. The
you, Hobby Lobby, By Michelle Malkin
Nov 27, 2013 - Religious liberty is front and center on the nation's
Thanksgiving table. On Tuesday, the Supreme Court agreed to hear
Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores Inc. The family-owned craft store
company is intrepidly challenging the constitutionality of Obamacare's
abortion coverage mandate. Hobby Lobby's faithful owners deserve our
thanks and praise as they defend freedom of conscience for all
Americans. The privately held retail chain's story is...

Obamacare Success Story to Obamacare Failure Story in 3 Days,
by Crystal Goodremote
November 19, 2013 President Obama used Jessica Sanford as an Obamacare
success story during his October 21 health care event. However, only
three days later, Sanford turned into another Obamacare failure. CNN
reports that Sanford, a 48-year-old single mother from Washington
state, purchased health insurance from the Washington state exchange.
US1… Is There a
Trial Lawyer in the House? by Ann Coulter
The only "crisis" in health care in this country is that doctors are
paid too little. (Also they've come up with nothing to help that poor
Dennis Kucinich.) But the Democratic Party treats doctors like they're
Klan members. They wail about how much doctors are paid and celebrate
the trial lawyers who do absolutely nothing to make society better, but
swoop in and steal from the most valuable members of society. Maybe
doctors could get the Democrats to like...
|Forbes… Obamacare Will
Be Repealed Well In Advance Of The 2014 Elections
Prediction: even if HealthCare.gov is fixed by the end of the month
(unlikely), Obamacare is going to be repealed well in advance of next
year’s election. And if the website continues to fail, the
for repeal—from endangered Democrats—will occur very rapidly.
website is a sideshow: the real action is the number of people and
businesses who are losing their health plans or having to pay a lot
more. Fixing the website will only delay the inevitable. It
important to remember why it was so important...
US1.me… The War Against
Achievement, by Thomas Sowell
A friend recently sent me a link to an inspiring video about an upbeat
young black man who was born without arms. It showed him going to work
-- unlike the record number of people living on government payments for
"disabilities" that are far less serious, if not fictitious. How is
this young man getting to work? He gets into his car and drives there
-- using controls set up so that he can operate the car with his feet.
What kind of work does he do, and how...
Heritage Network… Is
Government Still "Of the People"?
11/19/2013 - Seven score and 10 years ago today, Abraham Lincoln
delivered the greatest speech in American history. Standing on the
bloodied battlefield of Gettysburg, Lincoln urged the fractured nation
to dedicate itself to the “unfinished work” of the battle. In only 10
sentences—272 words in all—he made clear the far-reaching implications
of the Civil War: “that government of the people, by the people, for
the people shall not perish from the earth." It took a long Civil War
and hundreds of thousands...
Democrats, not GOP, facing looming civil war,
Nov. 14, 2013 Despite what the hysterical media will tell you, those
distant blasts you heard last week rolling from New York City to
Richmond were not cannon fire from the ongoing civil war within the
Republican Party. They were the first shots fired in the civil war that
is about to break wide open within the Democratic Party. The
hyperventilating media have gone from simply jaundiced sideline
observers to outright cheerleaders, breathlessly fanning the flames of
discord within the GOP at every turn. Who...
Offers High School Seniors $30,000+ to Snoop for NSA,
Nov 18, 2013 Obama is offering high school seniors $30,000 a year for
college tuition, PLUS a job, housing, transportation and a galore of
other benefits. Apparently, Obama is having a hard time finding youths
willing to spy on their friends, so he’s upping the ante. NSA.Gov
currently has a “job” posted for young people who are desperate for a
job, thanks to Obama’s lackluster recovery. Under “Careers” and
“Opportunities for You,” the NSA has this...
Raw Story… Are
ratings sinking past the point of no return?
By Agence France-Presse - Friday, November 15, 2013 - Barack Obama’s
second term fumbles have pitched him to record low poll ratings and
splintered his credibility with the American people. But has his
presidency reached the point of no return? History and opinion poll
data suggest that when reelected presidents slump in the ratings, it is
tough, if not impossible to bounce back. Obama, stung by the amateurish
debut of his health care plan, which has sent fellow Democrats into
revolt, is beginning to...
Punchline, but Obamacare Is No Joke, by Ed
November 14, 2013 - “The Tonight Show” is a cultural bellwether, so
when its studio audience roars its approval at Senator Ted Cruz’s
(R-TX) quip that Obamacare is “the biggest job killer in this country,”
you know something’s happening across our land. The truth is now
gushing out on the President’s signature legislation, which has become
a late-night punchline that not even reliably liberal “Saturday Night
Live” or Jon Stewart can keep from satirizing. The fact that fewer than
27,000 people “selected”...
Our Veterans Fight,
by Amy Payne
November 11, 2013 - We get a feeling when we see the American flag
raised, the national anthem played, and our men and women in uniform
saluting. Children look up and put their hands over their hearts. Men
take off their hats. For a moment, we are united. But in the daily
rancor of politics, which leaves so many people disappointed in their
country, can we elevate that sense of American greatness that causes us
to pause in those moments? Kim...
Ike, and My Teenage Boys,
by Paul Kengor
Nov 11, 2013 I recently took my two teenage sons to a talk by Frank
Kravetz, a 90-year-old World War II veteran who survived Hitler’s
Nuremberg prisons. Frank published his story in a memoir, Eleven Two:
One WWII Airman’s Story of Capture, Survival and Freedom. Frank’s
ordeal began in November 1944 during a bomb-run over Germany. He took
his regular position, crammed into the tail of a B-17. The target was
Merseberg, a major industrial area. He flew amid an air armada of 500
Iranian deal "A Mistake of Historic Proportions",
Nov 11, 2013 The roll out of O-Blunder-Care has taken almost all of the
oxygen out every media news room. One is left to wonder if anything
else is happening of importance. There is, and it's not good. Secretary
of State John Kerry is trying to cut some serious nuclear slack to
Obama's newest best friend Iranian President Hassan Rouhani. As the
Wall Street Journal reported this week: GENEVA—Iran and world powers
expect to announce an initial deal...
'Really Good at Killing People', by Leah
Nov 06, 2013 Remember when a Swedish reporter asked the president in
September to describe the “dilemma to being a Nobel Peace Prize winner
and getting ready to attack Syria”? If the following is true, it
doesn’t really seem like there’s much of a moral dilemma he’s
struggling with at all. Via the Washington Times: President Obama was
overheard bragging to administration aides about his ability to kill
people with drones, a new book about the 2012 campaign season that’s
due for release on...
Care for the Pushy, by Ann Coulter
Nov 06, 2013 So now it turns out Obama knew that 93 million Americans
would have their health insurance canceled the whole time he was
claiming, "If you like your insurance, you can keep it. Period." Obama
lied. Period. "Hope and Change" was actually "A Sucker Is Born Every
Minute." Even without the 2010 Health and Human Services (HHS) report
admitting that 93 million Americans would lose their health insurance,
anyone with half...

for Inevitable, By Simon Black
November 5, 2013 [Editor's Note: What follows was originally published
in Notes from the Field exactly one year ago.] Just over 400-years ago
today, a group of 13 conspirators were caught trying to assassinate
King James I of England and blow up the House of Lords in what became
known as the Gunpowder Treason. If you’ve ever seen the movie V for
Vendetta, you know the story. Guy Fawkes was found underneath the House
of Lords with three dozen barrels of gunpowder… and to this day ...

November 6th, 2013 Ken Cuccinelli is a friend and I am sorry he lost.
In 2009, the Republican National Committee spent $9 million to win
Virginia by a big margin. For the past 48 hours, the party bosses have
been screaming to everyone about how much money they poured in this
time in Virginia. We’ve had a few diarists at RedState document it and
suck it up as gospel truth that the RNC did all it could this time. The
RNC spent $9 million in 2009 to win and...
be Covered Under Senate “ENDA” Bill? By Daniel
November 3rd, 2013 - While it’s possible to recover from fiscal
bankruptcy, we will never recover from the moral bankruptcy in
Washington. We will never build a free and prosperous country
built upon the ruins of the civil society. But this week in
Washington, Harry Reid’s Senate will spend the entire week using the
power of government to infringe upon our liberty and destroy the civil
society. As we noted on Thursday, the Senate “ENDA” bill (S.815) would
bestow civil rights status on anyone...
in 2016, by Star Parker
Nov 04, 2013 - The presidential election of 2016 will be a defining
moment for the nation and for the Republican Party. Not so for the
Democratic Party. There’s no controversy among Democrats about what
America should be and what their party is about. Big government,
welfare state socialism, and secular humanism. The only question about
who the Democratic presidential candidate will be is which welfare
state socialist, secular humanist they will...
Foundation…Exclusive: HealthCare.gov Users
of Security Risk, Breach of Privacy, by
and Rob Bluey
November 2, 2013 Justin Hadley logged on to HealthCare.gov to evaluate
his insurance options after his health plan was canceled. What he
discovered was an apparent security flaw that disclosed eligibility
letters addressed to individuals from another state. “I was in complete
shock,” said Hadley, who contacted Heritage after becoming alarmed at
the breach of...
McConnell Embraces the Anti-Rush Limbaugh Playbook,
November 4th, 2013 For the last year, the left has engaged in an
organized campaign to drive Rush Limbaugh off the air. Knowing they
cannot go after Rush Limbaugh directly, the left has launched repeated
boycotts against any advertisers who dare advertise while Rush Limbaugh
is on. Consequently, some advertisers decided to stop advertising at
all on political talk radio, depriving the genre as a whole of
resources. And it still hasn’t hurt Rush...
Desperate Democrats Propose Law to Restore Obama's 'Keep Your Plan'
by Guy Benson - Oct 31, 2013 - The firestorm over President Obama's
"you can keep your plan" lie now threatens to singe vulnerable
Democrats next year, so they're springing into action to try to force
the administration to keep its word. Louisiana's Mary Landrieu -- an
ardent Obamacare supporter -- is scrambling to undo one of the obvious
consequences of a law she's voted to pass, fund, and retain: Sen. Mary
Landrieu said Wednesday she would propose legislation to ensure all
the Well Fed, By Erick Erickson
October 29th, 2013 - In William F. Buckley’s mission statement for
National Review, written in 1955, he did not mention winning elections.
That’s not to say it is unimportant, unneeded, or unwanted. But it was
not mentioned. In fact, Buckley wrote, “We believe that truth is
neither arrived at nor illuminated by monitoring election results,
binding though these are for other purposes, but by other means,
including a study of human experience...
