SOTU Address:Obama Asks for GOP Controlled Congress for Civility Then Goes Snarky and Shoots Back at Republicans, “I Won Both of Them” (Video)
THE STATE OF
THE UNION OBAMA HYPOCRISY …
During tonight’s State of the Union Address, President Barack Obama called for civility and for Congress to come together and work together. Obama called for better politics, one where we spend less time drowning in dark money for ads that pull us into the gutter. Then after all this call for kumbaya politics, Obama went snarky and back to the divisive politics of me. Obama opined, “I have no more campaigns to run.” His comment was met with some GOP applause and then some laughter. Then Obama’s true colors came out as the thin skinned president made the following snark comment, “I know because I won both of them”. REALLY? Once again it’s all about Obama, its all about “I”. The second election is debatable whether you won, with all the IRS scandals against Tea Party and conservative groups, stolen might be a better description. However, I wonder when Obama said, “I won” what the many Democrat US Reps and Senators sitting at home, tossed out of office because of Obama’s policies and agenda thought?
Imagine if we broke out of these tired old patterns. Imagine if we did something different.
Understand— a better politics isn’t one where Democrats abandon their agenda or Republicans simply embrace mine.
A better politics is one where we appeal to each other’s basic decency instead of our basest fears.
A better politics is one where we debate without demonizing each other; where we talk issues, and values, and principles, and facts, rather than “gotcha” moments, or trivial gaffes, or fake controversies that have nothing to do with people’s daily lives.
A better politics is one where we spend less time drowning in dark money for ads that pull us into the gutter, and spend more time lifting young people up, with a sense of purpose and possibility, and asking them to join in the great mission of building America.
If we’re going to have arguments, let’s have arguments?—?but let’s make them debates worthy of this body and worthy of this country.
That’s a better politics. That’s how we start rebuilding trust. That’s how we move this country forward. That’s what the American people want. That’s what they deserve.
Obama White House Says, It’s Fair to Say We Were Wrong on Paris Unity Rally … WH Caught with Its Pants Down or Purposeful Decision?
Sorry Barack Obama, this is a little bigger than, oh sorry, my bad.
The Obama administration is in full spin CYA mode in the wake of the outrage of U.S President failing to attend the “Unity” march with numerous other world leaders as he opted to stay home instead and watch football. Quick, get the PR machine out there to lie to the media and people. White House spokesman Josh Earnest did his best to spin his way through the disastrous visuals and symbolism of Barack Obama or any other high level US leader being present for the march against radical Islam. White House spokesman Earnest said, “It’s fair to say we should have sent someone with a higher profile to be there.” What ever do you mean, you mean sending no one of any importance what-so-ever was wrong? None of you could have figured this out in advance? Sorry, but that is BS. Obama told us all in the past that Bin Laden was dead and terrorism was on the run. To suddenly acknowledge that France just had their own 9-11 moment would go against Obama’s down playing of terrorism.
Barack Obama could not be reached for comment he was too busy
The White House said Monday that it made a mistake in not sending President Obama or a top administration official to the weekend unity march in Paris, a rare concession that it had botched the optics of an important international event.
“It’s fair to say we should have sent someone with a higher profile to be there,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters at his briefing, which was dominated by questions about the march.
“We want to send a clear message, even in a symbolic context like this one, that the American people stand shoulder-to-shoulder with our allies in France,” said Earnest. “And sending a high-level, highly visible senior administration official with a high profile to that march would have done that.”
He dodged questions about who was responsible for the decision to have the U.S. be represented by the U.S. ambassador to France, saying only that it was a staff-level call the president was not personally involved in.
So, some how Barack Obama and his minions could see the importance of sending people to Ferguson, Missouri and to the funeral of an individual who robbed a store and assaulted a police officer, but they could not see the importance of supporting one of America’s greatest allies in France and 40 world leaders coming together in a show of solidarity against radical Islam.
The JV Presidency.
Wait, White House aides said Sunday, as they saw coverage come in of the anti-terrorism march in Paris — Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko is there? Jordan’s King Abdullah? The presidents of Gabon, Benin, Niger? Not to mention the leaders of the United Kingdom, Germany, Spain, Italy and other major allies — and even Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov?
Somehow an event that the French didn’t even announce until Friday had quickly gathered momentum, drawing about three dozen foreign leaders to Paris to express their outrage at the killings of French citizens at a satire magazine and a Jewish supermarket last week. America’s representative, Ambassador Jane Hartley, looked a little out of place.
White House aides were so caught off guard by the march’s massive size and attention that they hadn’t even asked President Barack Obama if he wanted to go.

The Affordable Care Act, Barack Obama’s signature piece of legislation has just been one lie after another …
Remember when President Barack Obama promised that Obamacare would reduce the number of expensive ER visits as access to other kinds of care was expanded? But of course this is the same signature piece of legislation where Obama promised that you could keep your own doctor, hospital and insurance plan if you liked them. Those were all lies as well. When the majority of people that are signing up for it are doing so as a form of medicaid, of course the ER is going to be used as a clinic. It doesn’t take a brain surgeon to figure that one out. But of course Obama was going to lie through his teeth to the American people to get Obamacare passed, as Jonathan Gruber said, they had all considered the stupidity of the American voter to be key.
With the healthcare expansion last year, many are watching how the Affordable Care Act affects emergency room use.
President Obama has promised his signature health law will gradually reduce expensive ER visits as access to other kinds of care is expanded. Critics contend newly insured patients — especially those enrolled in Medi-Cal, the state’s low-income health program that picks up most patient costs — aren’t likely to seek care elsewhere, and will overwhelm emergency rooms.
Neither of those outcomes were clearly evident in the first months of the new healthcare system’s operation in Los Angeles County, according to a Los Angeles Times analysis.
Data hospitals report to the state show that as insurance coverage was extended to hundreds of thousands of residents, ER visits for ailments not serious enough to require an admission grew 3.9% in the county in the first half of 2014, compared with the same period the previous year. The growth is in line with annual increases of 3% to 5% in the three years prior to the federal healthcare overhaul.
- If you like your plan, you can keep your plan. If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.
- “Affordable” Care. Obamacare Will Make Health Insurance More Affordable, even the president’s ideological cronies acknowledge that the Affordable Care Act is far from inexpensive for most Americans and that it “risks being a cruel joke.”
- It will prevent people from going into debt.
- ObamaCare will lower costs overall.
- Congress Meant for Subsidies to Flow Through State-based and Federal Exchanges
- More Americans will be insured.
- The Individual Mandate ‘Is Absolutely Not a Tax Increase’
GRUBERGATE: Barack Obama Adviser Jonathan Gruber Said Back in 2009, Obamacare Will Not Be Affordable
GRUBERGATE: HE’S BACK … GRUBER SAID IN 2009 THAT THE AFFORDABLE HEALTHCARE ACT WOULD NOT BE AFFORDABLE.
Imagine that, once of the chief architects of Obamacare, the Affordable Healthcare Act, said back in 2009 that it would not be affordable. Newly revealed Johnathan Gruber documents keep the unpopular signature piece of legislation by Barack Obama at the forefront of political discussion as 2015 will be much like 2014 for Democrats, running for cover and away from Obamacare. Johnathan Gruber is like the gift that keeps on giving. The docs reveal that Gruber questioned the affordability. Gruber said, “So what’s different this time? Why are we closer than we’ve ever been before? Because there are no cost controls in these proposals. Because this bill’s about coverage. Which is good! Why should we hold 48 million uninsured people hostage to the fact that we don’t yet know how to control costs in a politically acceptable way? Let’s get the people covered and then let’s do cost control.”
American voters are stupid and Obamacare will not be affordable
President Obama’s health care adviser Jonathan Gruber said that the Affordable Care Act would definitely not be affordable while he was writing the bill with the White House.
As Gruber continues to withhold documents while he awaits a call-back for more testimony before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee in the new year, more shocking information is coming to light detailing the deceptions that went into the writing of the health-care law
Gruber said that Obamacare had no cost controls in it and would not be affordable in an October 2009 policy brief, presented here exclusively by TheDC. At the time, Gruber had already personally counseled Obama in the Oval Office and served on Obama’s presidential transition team. Obama, meanwhile, told the American people that their premiums would go down dramatically.
Gruber goes on to admit that there were NO cost controls initially in Obamacare, that they would deceptively get people hooked on faux coverage, then pull the rug out from underneath them by rationing care:
“So what’s different this time? Why are we closer than we’ve ever been before? Because there are no cost controls in these proposals. Because this bill’s about coverage. Which is good! Why should we hold 48 million uninsured people hostage to the fact that we don’t yet know how to control costs in a politically acceptable way? Let’s get the people covered and then let’s do cost control.”
At the same time, Obama was lying to Americans, telling us that annual premium costs would decline by an average of $2,500 per family, a number that was apparently pulled out of thin air.
Gruber then admits that, under Obamacare, the only way for the scheme to work will be by rationing care:
“There’s no reason the American health care system can’t be, ‘You can have whatever you want, you just have to pay for it.’ That’s what we do in other walks of life. We don’t say everyone has to have a large screen TV. If you want a large screen TV, you have to pay for it. Basically the notion would be to move to a level where everyone has a solid basic insurance level of coverage. Above that people pay their own, without tax-subsidized dollars, to buy a higher level of coverage.”
JUSTICE WITH JUDGE JEANINE … RIPS THE DIVIDER IN CHIEF.
Honestly America, what did you expect from an individual who was influenced by communists, a community agitator, a member of the Trinity United Church of Christ that taught Black liberation theology under the guidance of Rev. Jeremiah Wright, and as Judge Jeanine says, “And you bring in the greatest charlatan of them all, a man who makes a living inciting racial hatred, a tax cheat and a liar, who claimed an African American girl was raped by a white man, stirring the pot of racial hatred that resulted in a defamation judgment against him – to sit with you at the citadel of power in the White House to discuss how law enforcement should be more sensitive.”
Tonight, Americans, once hopeful that after electing the first African American president, the issue of race would be a thing of the past, are left with Barack Obama, who stokes the flames of racial hatred, resentment and divisiveness.
A man who instead of healing our nation, instead of overcoming any racial divide prefers to take sides, based not on facts but on color, to prejudge situations based not on sworn testimony and evidence but on conjecture and a one size fits all resentment, to peddle the narrative of a national problem between law enforcement and young people of color.
Every young American who loses his life should be the concern of the man in the White House. But why is it that we only hear from him when death involves a person of color?
But James Foley, an American who never committed a crime and was beheaded, is nothing more than a blip in the president’s golf game.
I don’t remember you injecting yourself in the death of a young white American or sending in the attorney general on a local crime before the justice system can act – as you did with Eric Holder, sending him to Ferguson?
Instead, you see racism everywhere.
Mr. President, you say we need trust between police and the African American community, police need to be sensitive to minority concerns.
How about you teach respect for those who put their lives on the line every day, for those who protect us, for those who are the one line of defense against an otherwise barbaric and chaotic society?
How about you teach that when a police officer says “move along” or “put your hands behind your back,” you do it!
And teach that you don’t call cops derogatory names or reach into a police cruiser to grab a cop’s gun.
But then again, you’re the one who thinks cops are stupid.
Mr. President, you demand respect. Why not demand respect for police. When they issue an order, it’s not a suggestion, an invitation, a mediation or a request.
As anarchy reigned and protesters looted stores and burned buildings of hard-working Americans – many African American – where were you?
Or do you believe that those crimes are justification for a perceived injustice? Simple collateral damage – like Occupy Wall Street. That tax paying Americans need to just suffer through and then pay for?
But no, you fan the flames of resentment, trumpeting your own investigation that you could have completed by now, only prolonging the anger. Suggesting, yes, folks, this is yet another white injustice, and I’m going to reverse it with a federal civil rights investigation, when you know there isn’t a smidgeon – your word – of evidence to support the claim.

Rush Limbaugh on Fox News Sunday On Obama,”I Think for the President to Promote this Division … It Didn’t Happen. And that’s Tearing This Country Apart & On Hillary Clinton, “She Can’t Sell a Book. She Can’t Sell an Auditorium. The Hype Finally is Over.”
Rush Limbaugh speaks the truth on the Divider in Chief Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton 2016 chances and Republicans knowing how to lose the White House.
Love him or hate him, El Rushbo speaks the truth, it’s just a matter of whether you can handle the truth. Rush appeared on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace and discussed a litany of issues from Barack Obama embracing division with regards to race relations in the United States to police arresting people to collect taxes on cigarettes to Republicans cowardice over government shutdown to Hillary Clinton’s presidential chances in 2016, Jeb Bush’s chances for 2016 and the GOP knowing how to lose presidential elections.
Rush Limbaugh on Fox News Sunday
LIMBAUGH: I don’t think that things are rosy and perfect in America, but to say that they’re no better, as the mayor of New York said, that’s absurd. We’ve made all kinds of efforts to improve race relations in this country. The 1964 Civil Rights Act, affirmative action, we have bent over backwards.
Is it all perfect? No, it’s not. But there’s no acknowledgment of any progress, Chris. If you listen to these people, the president, the mayor of New York, you would think it’s 200 years ago. You would think we haven’t even started working on these problems, and that’s not true.
And I think for the president to promote this division as he just did in that clip that you said, and mischaracterize what happened here — he’s talking in large part about Ferguson and what he described did not happen in Ferguson, and what most of the media is describing did not happen in Ferguson, Missouri. There was no “hands up, don’t shoot.” It didn’t happen. And that’s tearing this country apart.
We have people to whom the truth is relative. And they’re using whatever power they have to try to redefine the truth for the advance of their own political agenda. And it’s just not productive. And the president taking sides in this in a way that further divides the country I find reprehensible and very unfortunate.
CHRIS WALLACE, FOX NEWS SUNDAY: Hillary Clinton. How worried should Republicans be about Hillary Clinton as the Democratic potential Democratic nominee in 2016?
On the Republican side for 2016 presidential chances:
I think Jeb — the Republican Party is totally absorbed in this comprehensive immigration business, and Jeb is out there claiming the only way he can get nominations is somehow run against the base in the primaries. I think the Republicans have demonstrated they know how to lose the White House, and it’s time to change direction, change strategy. They’ve got that down path. And it’s not — they’re not going to win by continuing to do the same thing over and over again.
Imagine that, race relations are worse under the reign of a community agitator?
A new Bloomberg Politics poll shows that 53% of Americans say that race relations have gotten worse since Barack Obama was elected present, while only 9% believe that they have got better. Wasn’t Barack Obama supposed to be the first post-racial president that was supposed to bring the races together and bridge the divide? What a joke that was. Who could not have seen this coming with Barack Obama as a hindrance to racial harmony when one considers he was a community organizer and a member of the Trinity United Church of Christ that taught Black liberation theology under the guidance of Rev. Jeremiah Wright, “God Damn America”.
How many people foolishly voted for Barack Obama thinking that he would take leadership in being a bridge, not a wedge to race relationships?
Obama Speaks Of Rev. Wright In This 1995 Interview … “He is a wonderful man.”
We are a congregation which is Unashamedly Black and Unapologetically Christian… Our roots in the Black religious experience and tradition are deep, lasting and permanent. We are an African people, and remain “true to our native land,” the mother continent, the cradle of civilization. God has superintended our pilgrimage through the days of slavery, the days of segregation, and the long night of racism. It is God who gives us the strength and courage to continuously address injustice as a people, and as a congregation. We constantly affirm our trust in God through cultural expression of a Black worship service and ministries which address the Black Community.
Full poll results HERE.
President Barack Obama had hoped his historic election would ease race relations, yet a majority of Americans, 53 percent, say the interactions between the white and black communities have deteriorated since he took office, according to a new Bloomberg Politics poll. Those divisions are laid bare in the split reactions to the decisions by two grand juries not to indict white police officers who killed unarmed black men in Ferguson, Mo., and Staten Island, N.Y.
Both times, protesters responded with outrage and politicians called for federal investigations. Yet Americans don’t think of the cases as a matched set of injustices, the poll found. A majority agreed with the Ferguson decision, while most objected to the conclusion in the Staten Island death, which was captured on video. The divergent opinions—52 percent agreed on Ferguson compared with 25 percent who approved of the Staten Island outcome—add to an ongoing discussion that was inflamed when Officer Daniel Pantaleo was seen in the July video putting what appeared to be a chokehold on Eric Garner, a 43-year-old man suspected of selling untaxed cigarettes. Garner could be heard saying, “I can’t breathe,” and died of a heart attack in what a medical examiner ruled a homicide. The grand jury decision not to charge Pantaleo came just 12 days after a similar panel in Ferguson declined to charge Officer Darren Wilson, who in August shot to death 18-year-old Michael Brown. That altercation was not captured on video, and the prosecutor presented evidence of a physical confrontation between the two men before the fatal shots were fired.
Yup, for Barack Obama Rev. Jeremiah Wright was a wonderful man until his pastor became a political liability for him and Obama threw Wright under the bus.
IRSGATE: TIGTA Tells Watchdog Group ‘Cause of Action’ 2,509 Pages of IRS Documents Were Given to the Obama White House … But TIGTA Wont Release Docs Citing Tax Code Privacy
WHERE IS THE MSM TALKING ABOUT THIS STORY … THE GREATEST WHITE HOUSE SCANDAL EVER!!!
Guess what America, the IRS scandal that was first said was only two rogue agents in Cincinnati, Ohio, then went to the stonewalling on Lois Lerner‘s missing emails, has now gone all the way to the Barack Obama White House and the MSM is no where to be found in reporting the story. The IRS watchdog group, Cause of Action, through the Freedom of Information (FOIA) got the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) to admit that there are 2509 pages of IRS documents that the Internal Revenue Service gave to the Obama White House in unauthorized requests. It does not get any more illegal than this.
However, the IRS watch watchdog (TIGTA) is refusing to abide by a judges ruling compelling them to turn over the documents. This might be the most incredible and audacious excuse ever from the Obama administration. The Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration is stating that they are not providing the documents to ‘Cause of Action’ because of tax codes and privacy concerns. Are you kidding me? PRIVACY CONCERNS!!! You certainly had no problem violating these individuals and companies privacy by giving them illegally to the Obama White House. UNREAL.
An IRS watchdog is acknowledging that thousands of documents related to requests between the White House and the tax agency for unauthorized tax information exist — but says it must withhold them all due to privacy concerns.
The revelation by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) came as part of a lawsuit filed by non-profit group Cause of Action, which began investigating whether the IRS was improperly sharing taxpayer information with the White House in 2012.
Cause of Action originally filed a Freedom of Information Act request asking the IRS to turn over any documents, if they existed, related to correspondence between the IRS and the White House about requests for tax returns for individuals or businesses.
When the IRS said it was unable to do so because of constraints in the Internal Revenue Code, the group filed the lawsuit. A judge ruled that the IRS must turn over any relevant documents to Cause of Action by Dec. 1 to comply with the FOIA request.
On Tuesday, an attorney with TIGTA wrote a letter to Cause of Action, and acknowledged that the watchdog had located “2,509 pages of documents potentially responsive to your request.” Of those, TIGTA confirmed that 2,043 were in fact responsive to the request.
However, TIGTA said it could not release the documents to the group, citing the tax code.
This is the greatest scandal in American government and the media is no where to be found because the president is a Democrat and the first black elected president.
WHAT IF … The United States of America Had a Lawless President Who Could Care Less About the US Constitution & Was Hellbent on Harming We the People?
WHAT IF …
Sadly, the American people elected not once, but twice a president in Barack Obama that is not a “what if,” but a what is. To Obama, elections only matter when he wins. They are inconsequential when he gets shellacked and a real “ass-whuppin.”
This is a must watch VIDEO.
Ben Carson Says that Race Relations Were Better Before Presdent Barack Obama … Things Have Gotten Worse Because of Obama’s Manipualtion of Minority Communties
RACE RELATIONS WORSE UNDER OBAMA … THE GREAT DIVIDER.
With the backdrop of the racially charged Ferguson, Missouri unrest in the “no true bill,” no indictment of officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of Michael Brown, former John Hopkins neurosurgeon and probably GOP 2016 presidential hopeful Ben Carson was interviewed on The Hugh Hewitt radio show, had nothing good to say regarding President Barack Obama and race relations in the United States. Carson stated that race relations have gotten worse under the first black president as “things were better before this president was elected”. I would have to agree. When asked whether Obama plays the race card, Carson said … “yes, absolutely.”
Carson cited Obama’s criticism of the police in the Henry Louis Gates incident and his remarks that his son would look like Trayvon Martin and accused the president and other progressives of trying to “manipulate, particularly minority communities to make them feel that they are victims.” And that the president “absolutely” plays the race card, but he said the president was attempting not to do so in the aftermath of the grand jury decision regarding Officer Darren Wilson.
What is sad is that many people thought that the election of Barack Obama would make the situation between the races better. In 2008, exit polls showed that voters were optimistic as they elected Obama … 47% said they thought race relations would get better, 34% said they would stay about the same and only 15% expected them to deteriorate. Personally, I thought they were out of their minds. Especially because Barack Obama had been a “community organizer” and a member of a black liberation theology church in Chicago with Reverend Jeremiah Wright as his pastor. That was then, this is now. In NBC 2014 exit polls, only 20% think things have gotten better, while 38% believe it has gotten worse.
Amid episodes like the unrest over the summer in Ferguson, Missouri, how have American voters’ perceptions of race relations changed since Barack Obama was elected the nation’s first black president? The 2014 NBC News national exit poll found that voters are twice as likely to say that things have gotten worse than say they have improved.
In the historic 2008 election, the exit poll asked voters how they thought race relations in this country would fare in the next few years. On balance, voters were optimistic as they elected Obama – 47% said they thought race relations would get better. Thirty-four percent thought they would stay about the same. Just 15% expected them to deteriorate.
Our latest poll suggests that far from healing America’s racial wounds, the first black president has reopened them. Obama the uniter is actually the great divider.
By an almost 3-1 margin, Americans say race relations have worsened under the man who was supposed to usher in a golden era of “post-racial” relations.
Six years after electing the nation’s first black president, a stunning 46% in the new IBD/TIPP Poll draw that conclusion compared to 18% who don’t. Nearly one in four believe race relations have gotten “much worse” under President Obama, while 35% say they’ve stayed the same.
