    Michelle Obama to donors: Write ‘biggest, fattest check’ you can

    it is absolutely pathetic when the priveleged elite start begging for more and more money because they never have enough.
    Tickets for the fundraiser started at $500 per person and ranged upwards to $10,000 and $20,000 per couple.

    Obama’s 20-minute speech covered obstructionist politics in Congress, campaign finance as well as health care, according to a pool report of the event.

    “It’s gotten so bad, they’re even trying to block the work that I do on childhood obesity.

    Funny,i don’t remember anybody electing her to do a damn thing but waste taxpayer money.

    Obama Democrats Lose Their Big Bet on Health Exchanges
    The law passed by Congress, Judge Thomas Griffith explained, provided for subsidies in states with state-created exchanges, but not in states with federal exchanges. That’s factually correct, and under the Constitution, the government can’t spend money not authorized by Congress.

    This has not prevented Democrats from calling the decision “judicial activism,” which makes as much sense as the claims that the Supreme Court decision overturning the Obamacare contraception mandate cuts off all access to contraception.

    When Pelousy said;’we have to pass the bill to see what’s in it’ they must have missed a few things in the sloppily-written and pushed through bill without a single republican vote.They may pay a price if Barry obeys judicial rulings he doesn’t agree with for the first time in his reign.

    DATELINE:DALLAS
    Commissioner John Wiley Price, three others arrested
    Dallas County Commissioner John Wiley Price was arrested Friday morning for bribery, tax fraud and mail fraud.

    Federal prosecutors claim from 2001 to 2011 Price received a stream of $950,000 in corrupt payments and financial benefits in the form of money, cars and land.

    It never gives his party affiliation in the article,but since one brand of politician thinks elective office gives them a license to steal,you just know.

    Obama aide says impeachment threat taken seriously
    WASHINGTON (AP) — One of President Barack Obama’s top advisers says the White House takes seriously the possibility that House Republicans could pursue impeachment of the president.

    This is a setup.
    The Spite House knows the House won’t try to impeach the Clown Prince.This is a tactic to rile up the base and get their homeys out to vote for whoever the ‘D’ on the ballot is to try to protect their false idol.

    Obama’s ‘Africa Summit’ to close parts of D.C., limit airspace

    President Obama has invited the leaders of most of Africa’s 54 nations and the African Union for an historic summit in early August and the Secret Service and Metropolitan Police are warning business that broad areas of the city will be closed off for security.

    The Nubian Nightmare is having a little get-together with his posse of tinpot dictators Aug. 3-6.it will likely be closed to the press so they can praise allah and get more taxpayer aid from their brother Hussein.

    A VERY good read. To understand exactly where Israel lies (between a rock and a hard place) in this world, this article gives you a VERY clear picture… a VERY “heck if they do, heck if they don’t” picture.

    A supportive British colonel, and a bleak vision of endless costly military operations

    I asked Richard Kemp how Israel might achieve a demilitarized Gaza. He shook his head at the improbability of it. ‘Some kind of peacekeeping force would be essential, but who’d do that? Not the US, not the UK, nobody’

    “The origin of gunpowder is unknown, and may have occurred in China, Turkey, or Europe. The first record describing the combination of charcoal, sulphur, and saltpeter, to produce a rapidly burning or exploding powder is a coded writing by Franciscan monk Roger Bacon shortly before 1250 A.D…

    …Seven hundred fifty-eight years later, outside Sadr City, Iraq, Navy SEAL Chris Kyle shot a .338 Lapua bullet (almost half an inch in diameter) out of his McMillan TAC-338 to make his longest shot, 2,100 yards. Almost a mile and half. That record shot saved an entire Army convoy from a rocket-propelled grenade.”

    “During a panel discussion on Special Report, Krauthammer pointed out how Christians are being persecuted all over the Middle East. This is something that has followed our involvement in many of these countries by the Obama administration funding and providing weapons to terrorist organizations like the Muslim Brotherhood, of which he has been labeled a member and his foundation has been tied to terrorist groups. Furthermore, his brother Malik has been a chief financier, and was given tax exempt status by none other than former IRS head Lois Lerner…”

      I thought we settled this in the 1960’s?

    • Good article! I’m a sorta scientist who’s published papers in international journals, and I also believe in a young Earth based on the evidence, not because the Bible indicates it. People mock young earthers, but I challenge anyone to come up with any bombproof evidence that the Earth is older than about 10,000 years old. There’s literally, truthfully no way to tell without using circular arguments. I’m willing to believe in an old Earth, but nobody’s EVER presented any evidence of it that doesn’t involve ludicrous assumptions. Period. Radiometric data included.

  18. Knight4GFC says:

    ‘The federal government is asking paramedics and firefighters to be on the lookout for “extremists” as part of a program that aims to uncover “suspicious activity.”

    A bulletin released in March 2014 by the FBI, Department of Homeland Security and the National Counterterrorism Center, obtained this week by Public Intelligence, contains details of a program entitled “Emergency Medical Treatment Presents Opportunity for Discovery of Violent Extremist Activities.”

    The bulletin, which was sent out to firefighters, emergency medical service personnel and other first responders nationwide, encourages these groups to watch for “indicators of violent extremist activities” during their line of work.

    First responders are asked to “evaluate whether an injury is a genuine accident or related to violent extremist activity,” by noting “hastily or expediently treated injuries” which “may be signs of suspicious activity.”

    The thought of EMTs becoming distracted by a function which allows them to pretend they have a starring role in CSI Miami, instead of promptly treating someone who is seriously burned, will not fill potential victims of such accidents with much confidence…’

    Hey Grunt! When you get a chance, would you elaborate on what would really, or could possibly, happen if a solar flare of some significant magnitude actually hit us directly?

    http://www.forbes.com/sites/ericmack/2014/07/25/keep-calm-the-truth-about-the-huge-solar-flare-that-just-missed-earth/

    • Well, I’m no expert, but I think the worst that would happen is what’s happened in the past when we’ve been smacked with a burst of high-energy particles and other junk from a flare. Some satellites die. Some interruption of communications. Quasi-dangerous radiation for high-altitude travelers on planes and on the space station. People in Denver and Leadville need to stay indoors. 😉
