Jonathon Gruber Backtracks on His “Americans are Stupid” Comments … But He Has Said it On More Than One Occasion
MSNBC still carrying the water for Barack Obama and Obamacare …
Suddenly MIT professor Jonathan Gruber and the architect of Obamacare is in full spin and CYA mode as he backtracks from his comments that were just made public to all. Gruber stated that Obamacare was a lie, a fraud and the American people were purposely deceived in order to pass the law. Gruber also called the American people stupid. Hmm, isn’t this what Conservatives had said for years? Now Gruber is saying his comments were inappropriate. There is just one problem,Gruber made last these American voter are “stupid” remarks on more than one occasion. Watch the video from The Kelly Files via The Blaze, link HERE, to video of more remarks made by Gruber and Megyn Kelly’s less than willingness to believe him. It begins at the 2:00 mark of the video that Gruber has made this sane remark on more than one occasion. Off the cuff, eh?
Sorry, but he hardly to be seems to be speaking off the cuff. Jonathan Gruber is a very well-spoken and intelligent man. He is also a liberal who has a low opinion of the masses and would do anything to deceive then in order to get Obamacare passed. Gruber regrets making the America voters are stupid comments. Now, he regrets having it be made public. What, is Jonathan Gruber blaming his remarks on a spontaneous thought in his head, when he says he was speaking off the cuff? C’MON MAN!!!
Interestingly enough, he would not appear on FOX News to get a grilling and not just a softball interview on MSLSD.
This bill was written in a tortured way to make sure CBO did not score the mandate as taxes. If [Congressional Budget Office] scored the mandate as taxes, the bill dies. Okay, so it’s written to do that. In terms of risk-rated subsidies, if you had a law which said that healthy people are going to pay in -– you made explicit that healthy people pay in and sick people get money — it would not have passed… Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage. And basically, call it the stupidity of the American voter, or whatever, but basically that was really, really critical for the thing to pass. And it’s the second-best argument. Look, I wish Mark was right that we could make it all transparent, but I’d rather have this law than not.
The Triple Crown of Lying … Fact Check.org/Politifact/WAPO Fact Checker Gives Barack Obama & Minions More Pinnochio’s for His Lame ISIS, JV Team’ Explanation
BARACK OBAMA, YOU LIED … AGAIN!!!
Fact Check.org gives Barack Obama more “Pinocchio’s” for his lame effort in trying to say that he was not referring to ISIS when he was making the past comparison that ISIS was like a “jayvee” terror team. WHAT OBAMA LIE? Say it isn’t so. Obama and his minions have won the “triple crown” of lying as Fack Check.org, Politifact and the WAPO Fact Checker all say … YOU LIE. I guess it all depended on that is, is … oh sorry, ISIS is. Barack Obama is simply incapable of telling the truth.
Todd: Long way, long way from when you described them as a JV team.
Obama: Well, I –
Todd: Was that bad intelligence or your misjudgment?
Obama: Keep — keep — keep in mind I wasn’t specifically referring to ISIL. I’ve said that, regionally, there were a whole series of organizations that were focused primarily locally. Weren’t focused on homeland, because I think a lot of us, when we think about terrorism, the model is Osama bin Laden and 9/11. And the point that I was –
Todd: You don’t believe these people –
Obama: Not yet. But they — they can evolve. And I was very specific at that time. What I said was, not every regional terrorist organization is automatically a threat to us that would call for a major offensive. Our goal should not be to think that we can occupy every country where there’s a terrorist organization.
Barack Obama – The Lying King
During Obama’s Meet the Press interview Sunday with new host Chuck Todd, the president essentially gave the same explanation Earnest previously gave about the JV remark published in the New Yorker in January.
“Keep in mind I wasn’t specifically referring to (Islamic State). I’ve said that, regionally, there were a whole series of organizations that were focused primarily locally, weren’t focused on homeland, because I think a lot of us, when we think about terrorism, the model is Osama bin Laden and 9/11,” Obama told Todd.
FactCheck.org issued a verdict Monday afternoon that like others was based on the transcript from New Yorker reporter Davide Remnick’s interview with Obama.
“The president can make the case that he wasn’t referring only to ISIS when he made his remark about a junior varsity team. But he cannot say that he ‘wasn’t specifically referring to ISIL,’ because The New Yorker article and the transcript of the interview make it clear that the context of the president’s remark included ISIS,” FactCheck.org says.
STRIKE ONE: Fack Check. org
STRIKE TWO: PolitiFact ranked Obama’s Meet the Press statement as “false.” That’s slightly better than the worst ranking the site can give: “pants on fire.”
STRIKE THREE: Washington Post Fact Checker gave Earnest its worst ranking.
Alabama Democrat Candidate For the 3rd Congressional District. J.T. Smith Says … “Actions of Republicans in Congress are Worse than #ISIL”
WHAT A SICK SOB … WHAT IS WRONG WITH THESE PEOPLE?
J.T. Smith, a Democrat candidate for Alabama’s 3rd Congressional district tweeted the following out on Monday stating that the “actions of Republicans in Congress are worse than #ISIL”. Smith is the Democrat nominee is facing Alabama GOP Rep. Mike Rogers. Smith actually took to Facebook to try and talk his way out of this nonsensical, reprehensible comment. Sorry JT, Iraq War veteran or no vet, you are an ass. ISIS rapes and murders little girls, they behead Americans, they savagely and brutally kill anything in their path and you would make such a comparison to the GOP?
So when Democrats are not calling Republicans racists, they are calling them terrorists instead. UNREAL.
Mr. Smith, an Iraq War veteran who faces Rep. Mike Rogers in November, later took to Facebook to explain his tweet.
“Twitter does not allow for context, but this does,” he said. “I am not saying that the Republican Party is beheading people in the streets, obviously. Here in America, because we are a civilized democracy, we do not use violence against each other as a means of control. The Republicans have used the economy as a means to terrorize the people of this country.”
This should be subtitled, Mr. Smith doesn’t go to Washington.
From The Gateway Pundit, “This followed Virginia Democrat Mike Dickinson‘s tweet yesterday calling on God to infect all NRA members with the Ebola virus.” Honestly, what is wrong with these hateful, unhinged people? Really Sir, you want people to die who you don’t agree with. Oh that liberal tolerance.
Unhinged Democrat Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi Chases Rep. Tom Marino (R-PA) Across House Chamber After He Called Her Out … “They didn’t have the strength to go after it back then.”
Nance Pelosi takes crossing the aisle to the extreme …
Rep. Tom Marino (R-PA) certainly did hit a nerve to say the least when he addressed the House regarding the debate on the border funding bill Friday night. Marino called out former Speaker of the House Nanncy Pelosi why when Democrats had control of the House, Senate and White House they did nothing about the border issue, but now with to make it a political issue. Needless to say, San Fran Nan then did something she never does, she came across the aisle. However, it was to confront Marino. After Pelosi said something to Marino, he responded, “It’s true, madam leader, I did the research on it,” Marino said. “You might want to try it. You might want to try it, madam leader. Do the research on it. Do the research. I did it. That’s one thing that you don’t do.” File this one under, The truth hurts, don’t it.
“You know something that I find quite interesting about the other side? Under the leadership of the former Speaker [Pelosi], and under the leadership of their former leader [Rep. Steny Hoyer], when in 2009 and 2010, they had the House, the Senate and the White House, and they knew this problem existed. They didn’t have the strength to go after it back then. But now are trying to make a political issue out of it now.”
The House then voted to approve the $694 million border supplemental, 223-189.
In an unusual breach of decorum, even for the divided Congress, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi chased Rep. Tom Marino across the House floor, taking offense at comments by the Pennsylvania Republican during debate on the border funding bill Friday night.
“We don’t have law and order,” Marino began as he wrapped up his comments on the border supplemental. “My colleagues on the other side don’t want to do anything about it.”
“You know something that I find quite interesting about the other side? Under the leadership of the former Speaker [Pelosi], and under the leadership of their former leader [Rep. Steny Hoyer], when in 2009 and 2010, they had the House, the Senate and the White House, and they knew this problem existed,” he continued. “They didn’t have the strength to go after it back then. But now are trying to make a political issue out of it now.”
Off-mic, Pelosi then approached Marino, crossing the aisle in view of cameras, and apparently challenged Marino’s assertion that Democrats did not do anything about the issue when they had majority control.
“Yes it is true,” Marino replied directly to Pelosi, who was House speaker in those years. “I did the research on it. You might want to try it. You might want to try it, Madam Leader. Do the research on it. Do the research. I did it. That’s one thing that you don’t do.”
Marino then urged lawmakers to support the border supplemental “because apparently I hit the right nerve.”
Powerline opines, “Before this morning, I regret to say, I was unfamiliar with Tom Marino. Today Marino is my hero.” I have to second that as well!
According to Pelosi spokeswoman Evangeline George, “Leader Pelosi just wanted to remind the Congressman that House Democrats had the courage to pass the DREAM Act – and have the courage to stand up for what the American people want: bipartisan, comprehensive immigration reform.”
George added that “Pelosi accepted the Congressman’s apology.”
UPDATE II: Marino’s chief of staff, Bill Tighe, stressed that Marino did not apologize to Pelosi, and will not apologize.
It would appear that Rep. Marino did not apologize to Pelosi and San Fran Nan had more to say than just the “Dream Act”. Marino took to twitter and tweeted that Nancy Pelosi called me an “insignificant person”.
“[Rep. Marino] did not apologize to Leader Pelosi and does not intend to do so as he has nothing to apologize for. She was entirely out of line in approaching him while he was recognized and delivering remarks on the Floor,” Tighe wrote in an email. “Her staff’s comment in your story about her accepting his apology in simply not true.”
Later, Marino took to Twitter to explain his side of the story.
Rep. Tom Marino – @RepTomMarino

It’s time for a change, Vote Joe Carr!!!
BEAT LAMAR announced today that conservative talk radio host Laura Ingraham will headline a Restore America: Joe Carr for Senate rally Tuesday, July 22 in Nashville, TN.
Ingraham, who just announced her full support for Joe Carr in her nationally syndicated radio program, said “Tennessee is one of the most beautiful states in America, and deserves a Senator who would rather spend his time with Tennesseans at Cracker Barrel than with lobbyists at elite Washington eateries.”
The Restore America: Joe Carr for Senate rally will be held at the Millennium Maxwell Hotel at 7 pm on Tuesday, July 22.
“With tens of millions in our country still out of work and the border crisis worsening, citizens across America are waking up to the shocking failures of the Washington establishment that Lamar Alexander calls home.

FROM THE DEMOCRATS … HAPPY FLAG DAY!!!
So this is how the Democrat party shows it’s love for America, eh? On Twitter stating Happy Flag Day while showing a picture of a child with who knows what flag or banner. What it is not is Old Glory. Instead of honoring the American Flag, but instead attempt to make a political statement in light of the controversy surrounding the child refugee system at the border.
This is the official Twitter account of the Democratic Party. Follow our tweets to get the latest info on Democratic news, issues, and events.
The Daily Caller – Democrats Celebrated Flag Day By Tweeting Out Non-American Flag:
In a picture sent out from the official Twitter account of the Democrats on Saturday, a young Hispanic boy appears to be holding some kind of flag or banner that has the colors of Old Glory, but clearly isn’t Old Glory.
The image is likely seen as a political statement in light of the controversy surrounding the recent arrival of thousands of unaccompanied children coming across the Mexican border into the United States from Central America.
However, many on Twitter are not amused:
#YOU LIE!!! Obama Administration’s Claim that Lois Lerner’s Emails Were Lost in Computer Crash, What a Crock of $hit
LIARS … WHY DON’T YOU JUST SAY THE DOG ATE HERE
HOME WORK EMAILS!!!
The IRS stated on Friday that they lost and cannot locate many of Lois Lerner’s emails prior to 2011 because her computer crashed that year. Image that, what a coincidence. House Oversight Committee chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) suggesting the Obama administration is being dishonest by saying these emails are lost stating, “Isn’t it convenient for the Obama Administration that the IRS now says it has suddenly realized it lost Lois Lerner’s emails requested by Congress and promised by Commissioner John Koskinen?” Ya think? Issa went on to comment, “Do they really expect the American people to believe that, after having withheld these emails for a year, they’re just now realizing the most critical time period is missing?” WHAT A JOKE. Imagine telling the IRS that you lost the necessary paperwork in a computer crash that they are requiring, which is more plausible than an email.
So let’s understand this … the government & NSA has a right to look at your emails, but some how they can’t retain their own? Who honestly believes this bullshit?
Liar, Liar – The Castaways
Liar, liar, pants on fire
Your nose is longer than a telephone wire
Ask me, baby, why I’m sad
You’ve been out all night, know you’ve been bad
Don’t tell me different, know it’s a lie
Come kill me, honey, see how I cry
The Internal Revenue Service says it has lost a trove of emails to and from a central figure in the agency’s tea party controversy.
The IRS told congressional investigators Friday it cannot locate many of Lois Lerner’s emails prior to 2011 because her computer crashed that year. Lerner headed the IRS division that processed applications for tax-exempt status.
The IRS acknowledged last year that agents had improperly scrutinized applications for tax-exempt status by tea party and other conservative groups.
“The fact that I am just learning about this, over a year into the investigation, is completely unacceptable and now calls into question the credibility of the IRS’s response to congressional inquiries,” said Rep. Dave Camp, R-Mich., chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee. “There needs to be an immediate investigation and forensic audit by Department of Justice as well as the inspector general.”
The Ways and Means Committee is one of three congressional committees investigating the IRS over its handling of tea party applications from 2010 to 2012. The Justice Department and the IRS inspector general are also investigating.
House Oversight Committee chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., is suggesting the Obama administration is being dishonest by saying these emails are lost.
I could not agree more with Powerline and their post, Obama Administration’s Claim that Lois Lerner’s Emails Are “Lost” Is Ludicrous. Actually, it is beyond ludicrous, it is an outright lie. Who honestly thinks that emails are kept on your hard drive? They are collected and saved on an email server that has a redundancy of backups. Do they really think we are that stupid? If Lois Lerner’s emails really do not exist, then some one would have had to gone to the email servers and the back up tapes and purposely deleted them. There is a thing in corporate America and government called “DRE”. That is short for “Disaster Recovery Exercises”. All do it to prepare for catastrophic events like fires, floods, earthquakes, hurricanes, etc to ensure that there is no data lost in case of a disaster and that business can get back up and running ASAP. I should know, I have participated in them for the past 4 years to ensure such efforts are effective. Guess what … emails are apart of that to check list.
The Obama administration’s claim that the IRS has “lost” two years of Lois Lerner’s emails is implausible to anyone who understands how email systems work. This is what the administration said:
The IRS told congressional investigators Friday it cannot locate many of Lois Lerner’s emails prior to 2011 because her computer crashed that year.
This statement, on its face, is silly. Emails are collected on email servers. Each user (e.g., Lois Lerner) has an account on an email server, where that person’s emails are collected. It is common for emails to be deleted from the user’s own desktop or laptop computer, but no one worries about that. When it is time to collect emails–something I do all the time in my law practice–you go to the email server and pull out the user’s entire account. A crash of the user’s computer is irrelevant and will not cause emails to be “lost.”
Further, emails are universally backed up in some other medium, often electronic tape, for long-term storage. Thus, even if an email server is destroyed, or all emails are deleted from a server after a specified length of time, the emails are still recoverable from back-up storage media.
These people are nothing but liars. The IRS would destroy you if you ever came back and said, you did not have the data they are looking for because it is lost. Now that’s what they are claiming … BS!!! This is simply a coverup because it is obviously that there are damning emails that connect the IRS’s Lois Lerner to the Obama White House. If this is the way that government agencies like the IRS are going to conduct themselves and act in a political manner against Americans, no matter if they are on the right or the left, then they must be dismantled and be ended permanently … if a government agency is going to act this rogue, they need to be abolished.

Barack Obama, the Liar in Chief … There is a reason he is called the
Lion Lying King.
According to a recent Fox News Poll, 6 in 10 American voters believe that President Barack Obama lies to the country on important issues most or some of the time. Just 6 in 10? Of course for many of us we can put one and one together and understand that Obama has been lying for years. However, what is most interesting from this poll is the number of Obama/Democrat key constituents that thinks he lies “most of the time” includes 13% of Democrats, 12% of blacks, 16% of liberals, 31% of unmarried women and 34% of those under age 30. OUCH!!!
Full poll results can be read HERE.
About six in ten American voters think Barack Obama lies to the country on important matters some or most of the time, according to a Fox News poll released Wednesday.
Thirty-seven percent think Obama lies “most of the time,” while another 24 percent say he lies “some of the time.” Twenty percent of voters say “only now and then” and 15 percent “never.”
President Obama has been accused by political opponents and media fact-checkers alike of telling falsehoods. Frequently cited: His repeated claim that under Obamacare “If you like your plan, you can keep it” and his insistence that “the day after Benghazi happened, I acknowledged that this was an act of terrorism.”
Of course Obama’s biggest lie that will affect nearly every individual in the United States was his shameful lies regarding Obamacare and that, “If you like your plan, you can keep it” In fact it garnered him the Politfact 2013 Lie of the Year. However, the lies have been so plentiful that it is almost impossible to list them. But with so many scandals during his presidency like Fast & Furious, Benghazi-gate and ITS-gate to name a few, are we really to believe that Barack Obama had no knowledge what was really going on? If his answer is he knew nothing, that would be a lie.
It would appear that Republican South Carolina Rep. Joe Wilson was on to something when he yelled out, “you lie,” during Obama’s 2010 State of the Union Address.
Colin Kaepernick Being Investigated for a Possible Sexual Assault, Also Ricardo Lockette & Quinton Patton Under Investigation (Police Report) … Could This be the Next Black Eye for the NFL? (Update: Kaepernick Responds in Tweets)
San Francisco 49er QB Colin Kaepernick may be the latest to commit an off the field personal foul.
Colin Kaepernick is being investigated for a possible sexual assault in Miami at the Viceroy Hotel on Brickell Avenue, as his name was connected with a sexual assault police report with the Miami Police Department. The incident is supposed to have occurred on April 1, 2014 when the unnamed woman went to the apartment of Seahawks receiver Ricardo Lockette, who played for the 49ers in 2012. Also at the apartment was Kaepernick and 49ers wide receiver Quinton Patton.
Thursday was not full of good news for Colin Kaepernick, as his name was connected with a sexual assault information report with the City of Miami Police Department.
The news first surfaced via TMZ.com, who cited law enforcement sources that told them Kaepernick was being investigated for a possible sexual assault.
A Miami police spokesperson told CBSSports.com that police are following up on an information report that involves the 49ers quarterback.
In that report, a copy of which was obtained by CBSSports.com, a woman, whose name is redacted, states that on April 1, she went to the apartment of Seahawks receiver Ricardo Lockette, who played for the 49ers in 2012. At the apartment were Kaepernick and 49ers wide receiver Quinton Patton.
The woman states that the group “talked for a while and she mixed some drinks for all of them and gave them shots.” The woman states “they told her in order to drink the shots she had to ‘hit’ the bong which contained marijuana.”
The woman states she “started to feel lightheaded and went to a bedroom to lay down.” She says she “took off her jacket and jewelry” at which point “Mr. Kaepernick came behind her into the bedroom and started kissing her.”
She “advised that Mr. Kaepernick started to undressed [sic] her” and that “she got completely naked.”
At that point she claims Kaepernick left the bedroom and that “they did not have sex.” At that point in time, the woman claims Patton and Lockette “peeked” into the room and she yelled “What are you doing? Where’s Colin? Get out!”
The woman also claims she has had a sexual relationship with Kaepernick in the past.
While cops only described the situation as a “suspicious incident” — it’s clear they are investigating an alleged sex crime, due to the fact the case was referred to the Special Victim’s Office, which handles sex crimes.
The woman’s name was redacted from the police report (which is usually done to protect the accuser in a sex-related crime) … but she was described as a “black” woman.
UPDATE I: The 49ers released a statement saying, “The 49ers organization is aware of the recent media report regarding Colin Kaepernick and is in the process of gathering the pertinent facts.”
UPDATE II: Full Police report (pdf)
Twitter: Colin Kaepernick – @Kaepernick7
49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is taking to social media to respond to a police incident report naming him as a “suspect” in a suspicious incident, and responding to stories on TMZ that continue to refer to it as a “sexual assault” investigation.
Kaepernick writes in three tweets, “The charges made in the TMZ story and other stories I’ve seen are completely wrong. They make things up about me that never happened.”
The next tweet reads, “I take great pride in who I am and what I do, but I guess sometimes you have to deal with someone who makes things up.”
The third tweet, “I want to thank all of the people who have shared their encouraging sentiments. I assure you that your faith is not misplaced.”
