I think it’s hilarious that PolitiFact has named “If you like your health care plan, you can keep it,” the Lie of the Year for 2013. You know it has to be bad when even a very liberal, bent-left “fact-checking” outfit recognizes the truth about Barack Obama.
Obama is such a liar he lies to his wife, his kids, his dogs, his friends (if he has any) … heck … the guy lies to himself.

I read just about every day, liberal drivel railing against Christians, churches and faith-based organizations which are crucial to helping and feeding the poor, providing shelter to the homeless and bringing the joy of Christmas to children. Liberals are always bringing accusations that Christians are nothing but money-grabbing hypocrites. People with 1/2 a brain know they do this to make themselves feel better about their own ignominious lives, which in every case has never lifted a hand of compassion to anyone. They think by talking down others elevates themselves … but ”au contraire” … their foolishness just becomes more evident.
I said all that just to set the record straight because I grow weary of liberals and other God-less, nefarious individuals attacking everything good and descent in America.
It’s gotten to the point of being more than ridiculous now, the suppression of anything that has to do with God and Jesus. It seems that the sport channel has a problem with an ad which acknowledges the good works of the Cardinal Glennon Children’s Foundation. ESPN has rejected the Christmas ad because it mentions the name of Jesus and God and ESPN calls that”problematic”.
Report: ESPN Rejects Catholic Hospital Ad Because ‘Jesus,’ ‘God’ ‘Problematic’
ESPN has reportedly rejected a Christmas commercial from a St. Louis area Catholic hospital because the network found the mention of “Jesus” in the ad to be “problematic.”
Bill O’Reilly, the host of Fox News’ O’Reilly Factor, said on Wednesday that an ad from the Cardinal Glennon Children’s Foundation was turned down by ESPN even though it is run on other networks in the area.
The commercial mentions that thousands of people in the community send “messages of hope to sick and injured children who may not be able to come home for the holidays.”
Well, we have an UPDATE:
ESPN will run the ad … as long as God and Jesus are left out. And naturally the Children’s Foundation caved. This is probably the main problem with Christians and even conservatives. We’ve allowed liberals and the anti-God crowd to bully us and this is the crap we’re left with. I’m really looking forward to see who God is going to leave out when the day of reckoning comes. I’m pretty sure He won’t be bullied.
I just visited Maggie’s Notebook and saw the following post. I’m putting it here to help get the word out for this gentleman who needs help.

Visiting BlurBrain yesterday I learned of a veteran who really needs some help. Those at BlurBrain, a well-respected and established blog, know this man personally and have worked with him in the past. I am told he particularly has skills in website design and graphics –“he’s a crack web and graphic designer” — but this man is willing to take a minimum wage and/or part time job. He lives in the Ocala, Florida area. Think about it, you hire this man for an entry level position. In the future you may need his help for a web-related position and he’ll be right there, with a responsible working history in his past.
…here at BlurBrain we happen to know a homeless veteran. He’s not a wino or drug addict, he’s just down on his luck and can’t find a job.
So we’ve setup a paypal account with a paypal debit card in his name and linked it to our donate button in the sidebar.
Every penny you give will go directly to him and his little dog Charlie…
Just a couple bucks, the cost of a cup of coffee could buy this guy a meal. Ten bucks could feed him for a day. Twenty could get him some decent clothes to wear on a job interview or the gas money to look for work. Source: Whoopie @ Blur Brain
If you have a possible job offer, or want to discuss a position with him, send an email to BlurBrain at the address below and it will be passed on the the veteran.
To donate, visit BlurBrain and click the PayPal button in the right sidebar under the heading: Help a Homeless Vet. Remember, every penny goes to this man.

It’s no secret that “national security” interests aren’t very important to Barack Obama and the Democrats. When they can benefit by selling out America to those who support them they will and quickly. Harry Reid, a familiar face in the rule-changing to benefit himself and the Democrats side-show, stepped up again and put the United States’ national security at risk …

VEGAS RULES: Harry Reid pushed feds to change ruling for casino’s big-money foreigners
The Obama administration overruled career Homeland Security officials and expedited visa applications for about two dozen foreign investors for a politically connected Las Vegas casino hotel after repeated pressure from Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and his staff, according to internal government documents obtained by The Washington Times.
The move to overturn what is normally a non-appealable visa decision came despite concerns about “suspicious financial activity” involving some of the visa applicants from Asia, and it ultimately benefited several companies whose executives have donated heavily in recent years to Democrats, the documents show. It also ensnared Mr. Obama’s current nominee to be the No. 2 Homeland Security official, Alejandro “Ali” Mayorkas, whose appointment is to be reviewed by the Senate on Wednesday.
The intervention from Mr. Reid’s staff was so intense at one point a year ago that a U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) official reported that it prompted a phone shouting match, turning a normally bureaucratic review process inside the Homeland Security Department into a politically charged drama that worried career officials.
“This one is going to be a major headache for us all because Sen. Reid’s office/staff is pushing hard and I just had a long yelling match on the phone,” USCIS Legislative Affairs official Miguel “Mike” Rodriguez warned in a Dec. 5, 2012, email to Homeland Security Department officials.
The emails, obtained by The Times from government officials concerned that the EB-5 investor visa program has become too politicized, detail how the SLS Hotel, formerly known as the Sahara Casino, tried to jump to the head of the line for its request for about two dozen visas for Asian investors willing to help it fund a major renovation of the storied property on the Las Vegas Strip.
Despite early pressure from Mr. Reid’s staff, career officials inside the Department of Homeland Security initially turned down the SLS Hotel on the grounds that it failed to meet the criteria for expedited review. The decision, dated Dec. 17, 2012, stated flatly that “there is no appeal or reconsideration of this decision.”
But that simply prompted Mr. Reid to personally reach out to the top official at USCIS, Alejandro “Ali” Mayorkas, setting into motion a process that consumed top political officials inside the Homeland Security and Commerce departments and ultimately resulted in a ruling that granted expedited status to the hotel over the objections of career officials.
I got a laugh out of these pictures of Barack and his lovely wife Michelle at the Mandela celebration. Michelle doesn’t appear to be having a ball. She looks “chapped” while Barack is laughing it up with Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt. You gotta wonder if this guy is just an idiot or is he really that immature? I don’t think Michelle has anything to worry about regarding the apparent flirts between Barack and Helle. Everyone knows Barack isn’t interested in females “that way”.
But you know, what’s the harm in having a little fun at the memorial service of a fellow Communist? Maybe Michelle should lighten up a bit. After all it is the Christmas season and there will be plenty of staged happy-moment photo ops.
I hope Bo has room for Barack …
There are folks I consider lewd fellows of the baser sort, who in the attempt to be “witty” or “clever”, refer to the good people who attend a church as “pew-jumpers” who will try to shove religion down their throats. You know the type. They are the very ones who think it’s okay to have Gay pride parades (shoving homosexuality down the public’s throat) (or schools shoving condom use down the throats of our 5 and 6 year old children) but don’t mention “God” in public … someone might be offended. These folks are disgusting and really shouldn’t be left alone with children or pets.
Many homeschooled children are taught a faith based curriculum and greatly excel over public school children in every area; oh, except in how to put on a condom, French kissing, fisting, how to masturbate or ”love” a child of the same sex, and many of the other subjects public schools focus on.
I’m going to provide a link so the readers can get some understanding of what the facts are when considering sending your kids off to public school or homeschooling them …

When Barack Obama was “elected” president in 2008 there were a lot of people who said “Lets give him the benefit of any doubt and see what he does”. This guy has had every advantage known to excel as president. The Democrats controlled both the House and the Senate and still control the Senate. He’s had the media covering for him and his folly every step of the way. He’s gotten to use the ”race card”, the “I didn’t know” excuse, and the “blame Bush” line for every failure. He’s a known pathological liar and continues this day unabated. The past five years has been a certified disaster for the United States. On some liberal web sites or “blogs” you’ll occasionally find links to a list of around 120+ ”accomplishments” that the good president has under his belt. Mostly consisting of executive orders for whatever he feels he can get around the Congress to impose his will, or things he said with nothing to indicate that he actually did anything. Any “accomplishments” generally contribute to his Destroy America Agenda and has weakened the United States in every way imaginable. His greatest accomplishment is now being one of the most dishonest and most untrustworthy persons ever to occupy the White House. Yeah, he’s one “historical” guy for sure!
Over at the Freedom Outpost, Tim Brown posted 252 Documented Examples of Barack Obama’s Lying, Lawbreaking, Corruption, Cronyism, etc. Now the list was posted on August 18, 2013 so it’s several months old. I’m confident we could add probably … oh … at least another 50 or so lies, cronyism, corruption and law-breaking examples to it, but this is good enough …
Every President, every politician, and every human being tells lies and engages in acts of hypocrisy. But Barack Obama does these things to a far greater degree than anyone else that I have ever known of. His campaign promises were so much better sounding than anyone else’s – no lobbyists in his administration, waiting five days before signing all non-emergency bills so people would have time to read them, putting health care negotiations on C-SPAN, reading every bill line by line to make sure money isn’t being wasted, prosecution of Wall St. criminals, ending raids against medical marijuana in states where it’s legal, high levels of transparency. Obama’s promises of these wonderful things sounded inspiring and sincere. They sounded so much better than the promises of any other President. So when Obama broke these promises, it felt so much worse than when other Presidents broke their promises.
In the 2008 United States election, I wrote in Ron Paul for President. In the 2012 election, I voted for Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson. Those who are of a more leftist persuasion than myself might want to consider voting for the Green Party in future elections.
Some of the things on this list are major events that should scare the daylights out of any true liberal who cares about civil liberties.
Other things on this list are medium things that some Obama supporters may dislike, but would be willing to overlook in light of the things that Obama has done which they like.
And some of the things on this list may seem trivial, but I still think they are an interesting reflection of the kinds of policies that Obama supports.
