REALLY, 40% OF AMERICANS ARE SO DISHONEST AND CLUELESS THAT THEY CANNOT ANSWER THIS QUESTION TRUTHFULLY?
According to a recent CNN poll, 57% of Americans disapprove of how Barack Obama is handling ISIS. Just 57%, seriously? 40% of the American public are actually so clueless and out to lunch that they approve of how Obama is handing ISIS and the brutal beheadings and burning people alive. What are the odds that this 40% even are aware of these barbaric acts or even what ISIS is. It is disgustingly pathetic that so many people cannot just be honest and actually admit that Obama can actually do something poorly.
Full poll results can be read HERE.
40% of polled approve of Obama’s handling of ISIS, as innocents are burned to death.
Americans are increasingly unhappy with President Barack Obama’s handling of ISIS, and a growing share of the nation believes that fight is going badly, according to a new CNN/ORC survey released Monday.
The CNN/ORC poll found 57% of Americans disapprove of how Obama is handling the threat posed by ISIS, a significant decline in support for the President over the past few months. In late September, that number was 49%.
Fifty-seven percent disapprove of his handling of foreign affairs more broadly, and 54% disapprove of how the President is handling terrorism. Another 60% rate Obama negatively on his handling of electronic national security.
EXIT QUESTION: I wonder how the 21 Coptic Christians that were beheaded by ISIS in Triopli, Libya would have answered this question? Maybe we could also ask Kayla Mueller, British aid worker Alan Henning, 47 year old Kenji Goto, Haruna Yukawa, or Peter Kassig. We would love to get their opinions; however, they have all been killed by ISIS.
Texas Republican Louis Gohmert Announces He Will Challenge to John Boehner for Speaker of the House in New Congress
FINALLY, A REPUBLICAN US REPRESENTATIVE WITH A CLUE THAT THE GOP VOTERS WANT NEW LEADERSHIP …
This morning on FOX News, Fox and Friends Weekend, US Representative Louis Gohmert (R-Texas) announced that he will be challenging John Boehner (R-Ohio) for the Speaker of the House in the new Congress. Gohmert said, if he is elected Speaker, he would “fight amnesty tooth and nail. We’ll use the powers of the purse. We’ll have better oversight. We’ll fight to defund ObamaCare.” Unless the Republican party wants to lose its base forever, newly elected and establishment GOP representatives best vote in a new Speaker of the House. A recent poll conducted by Caddell Associates and commissioned by the People’s Poll indicated that 60% of GOP voters want Boehner replaced as Speaker. Voters are tired of the status quo and gutless GOP establishment candidates. The GOP was not given control of the US Senate and a wider margin of control in the House so that establishment Republicans like Boehner can pass bills with Democrat votes. YOUR DAYS ARE OVER.
Rep. Louie Gohmert (TX-01) released the following statement today regarding his decision to buck the status quo and challenge John Boehner in the race for House Speaker:
“After the November elections gave Republicans control of the Senate, voters made clear they wanted change. There have been numerous examples of problematic Republican leadership, but we were hopeful our leaders got the voters’ message. However, after our Speaker forced through the CRomnibus by passing it with Democratic votes and without time to read it, it seemed clear that we needed new leadership. There had been much discussion. But, until yesterday, no one had stepped up.
I applaud my friend Rep. Ted Yoho for putting his name forward as an alternative to the status quo. Ted is a good man for whom I could vote, but I have heard from many supporters and also friends in Congress who have urged me to put forward my name for Speaker as well to increase our chances of change. That is why I am also offering my name as a candidate for Speaker. (MORE)
Rep. Louis Gohmert (R-Texas) said Sunday that he will challenge John Boehner (R-Ohio) as Speaker in the new Congress.
“I’m putting my name out there today to be another candidate for Speaker,” Gohmert said on “Fox and Friends.”
Gohmert said that after “years of broken promises, it’s time for a change.”
Rep. Ted Yoho (R-Fla.) on Saturday announced that he would not support Boehner for Speaker.
“This is not a personal attack against Mr. Boehner, however, the people desire and deserve a choice,” Yoho said in a Facebook post. “In November, they resoundingly rejected the status quo.”
“Eventually, the goal is second, third, fourth round, we have enough people that say ‘you know what, it really is time for a change,’ ” Gohmert said Sunday. “’You deceived us when you went to Obama and Pelosi to get your votes for the cromnibus. You said you’d fight amnesty tooth an nail. You didn’t, you funded it.’ ”
Gohmert said, if elected, he would ”fight amnesty tooth and nail. We’ll use the powers of the purse. We’ll have better oversight. We’ll fight to defund ObamaCare.”
CALL YOUR GOP REPRESENTATIVES AND DEMAND THEY VOTE FOR GOHMERT OR ANY OTHER CHALLENGER OTHER THAN BOEHNER.
IT IS TIME FOR A CHANGE, BOEHNER MUST GO!!!
Police Commissioner Bratton Tells NYPD, Don’t Turn Your Backs on Mayor de Blasio at Officer Wenjian Liu’s Funeral
SHAME ON NEW YORK CITY POLICE COMMISSIONER BILL BRATTON, HE HAS BECOME NOTHING MORE THAN A SUIT BOUGHT AND PAID FOR BY THE MAYORS OFFICE …
New York City Police Commissioner Bill Bratton has warned NYPD officers not to turn their backs on NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio this Sunday at the funeral of Officer Wenjian Liu. Bratton released a memo to the NYPD pretty much chastising them for their behavior at officer Rafael Ramos’ funeral. Bratton stated in the memo that a “hero’s funeral is about grieving, not grievance.” The memo further went on to attack the NYPD, blaming the officers involved with taking attention away from the funeral and ruining the NYPD’s reputation.
UNREAL. Bratton best watch out or the NYPD rank and file officers will be turning their backs on him next. I could not disagree with Commissioner Bratton more. It sounds like this once cop is nothing more than bureaucratic shill for Mayor de Blasio. The NYC mayor has shown no effort to mend the riff that he created between himself and the NYPD. In fact he has made it worse by reappointing Brooklyn Criminal Court Judge Laura Johnson to another year term on Wednesday, the same judge who let individuals out of jail without bail who made terrorist threats against police officers, one of who was a gang member.
Police Commissioner Bill Bratton is so worried his cops will turn their backs to his boss, Mayor Bill de Blasio, at another NYPD funeral that he sent out a memo to shame them into good behavior, sources told The Post.
“A hero’s funeral is about grieving, not grievance,” began the four-paragraph plea, which is being read at precinct roll calls ahead of slain Officer Wenjian Liu’s Sunday service.
Bratton won’t punish officers who choose to turn their backs to de Blasio — which was done in droves at the funeral for fallen Officer Rafael Ramos — but he pleaded with the rank and file to shelve their anger.
“I issue no mandates and I make no threats of discipline,” the memo said. “But I remind you that when you don the uniform of this department, you are bound by the tradition, honor, and decency that go with it.”
Police Commissioner Bratton should most likely shut up and allow the NYPD officer to express their First Amendment rights and freedom of expression. Other than going on strike and letting the masses fend for themselves, the only way they can dispaly the lack of support for the mayor is by doing such peaceful protests. As the NYPD are turning their backs on de Blasio, who had turned his back on law enforcement long ago by with words and deeds, the NYPD also does it in solidarity with slain officers like Officer Wenjian Liu. De Blaio and Bratton would like all to forget, but make no mistake, the NYC Mayor has blood on his hands.
Former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani Discusses the Murder of Two NYPD Officers … Calls for ‘Shameful’ De Blasio, Politicians to Stop the Propaganda (VIDEO)
Former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani appeared on Fox & Friends Weekend this morning to discuss the aftermath of the shooting deaths of two NYPD officers and what Mayor De Blasio should do. Giuliani stated that De Blasio should give a speech to the police department and would explain to them that maybe he was wrong about a few things and maybe he was wrong about putting too much emphasis on police misconduct. Giuliani went on to say, “the politicians with this propaganda, separating the community from the police, are doing something that’s shameful. And they have to stop doing that.”
Giuliani said that de Blasio should admit he was wrong in putting too much emphasis on police conduct, as opposed to violent crime in communities.
“The police are doing the most in these very, very poor communities,” Giuliani said. “The police officers are doing the most to save the children that are at greatest risk.”
“The politicians with this propaganda, separating the community from the police, are doing something that’s shameful. And they have to stop doing that.”
Giuliani asserted that de Blasio let protests get out of control and failed to emphasize the importance of fatherhood, education and seeking opportunities in poor communities.
“If you really want to save black lives … then you start talking about the underlying problems and how we solve it. You don’t blame it on the police,” he said.
“The police are doing the best job of saving black lives.”
Charles Krauthammer Says that Obama Executive Order Bypassing Congress and Constitution is an “Impeachable Offense”
IMPEACHABLE OFFENSE … THE LAWLESS BARACK OBAMA.
Tonight on The Kelly Files, Charles Krauthammer said to Megyn Kelly that amnesty by Barack Obama through executive order is an “impeachable offense.” However, Krauthammer feels that the GOP missed their opportunity as they failed to act in past cases with Obama of executive power grabs and his rewriting laws on his own and ruling by fiat. I also find it hard to believe that the Republicans would ever impeach Obama, hell they do not seem to have the CO-JONES to defund Obamacare or a potential amnesty in fear of shutting don the government and being blamed. Hey gutless GOP leadership, how well did you do in the last election following the 2013 government shut down?
Krauthammer went on to say that the Democrats will rue the day that Barack Obama act in his imperialist manner. One day the GOP will be back in power and it may just be pay back time. Obama claims that he is forced into passing immigrations policy via executive order because the Republicans have not passed anything. Really? Wasn’t it Barack Obama and the Democrats that had complete control of the House and Senate in 2009 and 2010 and did nothing to pass immigration? The president is nothing but a liar and a trouble maker trying to divide America and shred the US Constitution.
“If the circumstances were different, if we were at the beginning of a presidency, if we hadn’t had years when the Congress has been supine and unresponsive at other grabs of their authority by the executive–like Obama unilaterally changing Obamacare after it was passed about 30 times with no response from the Congress–the same as Obama essentially re-writing some of the drug laws.
“This idea of prosecutorial discretion is really a travesty. It is intended for extreme cases. For a case where you want to show mercy for an individual or two where it’s unusual incident, unusual circumstances and you say, okay, we’re going to give this person a pass. It was never intended to abolish a whole class of people subject to a law and to essentially abolish whole sections of a law. And that’s exactly what’s happening here.”

Obamacare Architect Jonathan Gruber Brags About Lying to the American People … “Call It the Stupidity of the American People”
OBAMACARE FRAUD … FROM THE LIAR IN CHIEF:
Finally we get the creators of Obamacare to call it for what it really is, one big lie and fraud … “Call it the stupidity of the American voter”. For those with any common sense have known from the outset that Obamacare was a sham and a fraud. But for many Americans, as Nancy Pelosi stated in the past, “we have to pass the bill to find out what is in it”. NO WE DIDN’T. Obama, his minions and Democrats purposely wrote this law with a lack of transparency to the American people so that it would pass. Wasn’t this Obama presidency supposed to be the most transparent ever? Yeah America, and I have a bridge to sell you is Brooklyn too.
“You can’t do it political, you just literally cannot do it. Transparent financing and also transparent spending. I mean, this bill was written in a tortured way to make sure CBO did not score the mandate as taxes. If CBO 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 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 to get for the thing to pass. Look, I wish Mark was right that we could make it all transparent, but I’d rather have this law than not.”
Imagine that, it was a premeditated Obama lie when he said, “If You Like Your Health Care Plan, You Can Keep It”.
From Town Hall.com, brings up a few points …
- Notice how lying to the American people is completely justified by Obama administration standards so long as the ends justify the means. Gruber would “rather have this law than not,” and therefore purposely lying about what the law actually is in order to get it passed is completely acceptable. regardless of the negative effects it has on the lives of Americans.
- Lack of transparency might be a huge political advantage in the short term, but long term there are consequences from voters, which is exactly what we saw last week during the Democrat blood bath at every level of government across the country.
- Insulting Americans as stupid and deceiving them is a really good way to lose your power on Capitol Hill, which is again exactly what we saw last week in the 2014 midterms. Twenty-eight Senators who voted for Obamacare are now out of the Senate for one reason or another.
- Obamacare in its entirely was “sold” on lies. From the promise to keep your doctor to claims insurance rates would go down, not up — to hiding that the legislation was in fact a tax until of course it was necessary to argue it was a tax to save the legislation at the Supreme Court. Government bureaucrats promising an expansion of care knowing care under Obamacare would be limited, etc. Hell, even the official name for Obamacare, “The Affordable Care Act,” is a lie. Obamacare isn’t affordable.
- The process through which Obamacare was shoved through and down the throats of the American people happened as a result of Harry Reid changing Senate rules and without the support of voters. The legislation didn’t receive a single Republican vote in the House or the Senate. Also, remember this?

Fox News, The Five: Liberal Bob Beckel Flips his Middle Finger at Jesse Watters in Heated Post Election Discussion Clash on Democrats Playing the Race Card
Keep it classy Bob, keep it classy … Jesse Watters actually nails it.
Bob Beckel, the token liberal host on ‘The Five’ lost his cool and gave Jesse Watters the middle finger as he had no factual comeback to the accusations that Democrats had used the race card during this past midterm election. What is most interesting about the events that took place is that Jesse Watters, more known for his ‘Watters World’ segments on The O’Reilly Factor actually nailed the Democrats use of the race card and race baiting 100%, which is most likely why it hit such a nerve with Bob Beckel.
Watters said, “I think I know why they are doing it. If anything that threatens the Democrat monopoly on the black vote, threatens the entire power structure of the Democrat party. It threatens any ability to get the White House. It threatens any ability to control urban areas. It threatens money, power … they try to scared blacks into not trying to cross the line.”
BINGO!!! When you have a voting block that continually and blindly votes +90% for one party, that political party will do anything to keep that overwhelming majority. Imagine what presidential races would be like if blacks voted only 60 to 70% for Democrats?
The panel was discussing Democrats’ use of the “race card” against Republicans before and after the midterm elections when Watters argued, “Anything that threatens the Democrat monopoly on the black vote, threatens the entire power structure of the Democrat party.”
“Oh, come on,” Beckel responded in a frustrated tone.
Later in the segment, Beckel claimed the examples cited during the show were not representative of the Democratic party as a whole.
“Were there any white Democrats denouncing their rhetoric?” Watters replied. “I didn’t hear any. So they’re OK with it.”
“I’m denouncing it,” Beckel shot back.
“You’re not a leader,” Watters said.
After that critical comment, Beckel flipped Watters the bird — and the cameras caught it.
UPDATE I: Beckel later apologized during the show for his actions.
DEMOCRAT SEN. MARK PRYOR SAYS OBAMA HAS BEEN A DRAG ON HIS CAMPAIGN … NO, YOUR VOTING WITH AND AGREEMENT WITH THE OBAMA AGENDA HAS BROUGHT YOU DOWN.
Incumbent Democrat Arkansas Senator Mark Pryor tries in vain to distance himself from President Barack Obama as he finds himself well behind by 7% in the recent RCP average polling to Republican challenger Tom Cotton. Unfortunately for Pryor, it is hard to suddenly call Obama a drag on his campaign and distance one’s self when Sen. Mark Pryor had voted with Obama 93% of the time. However it has been even worse this year … Roll Call lists Pryor in their 10 Most Vulnerable Senators of 2014 and has him voting in support for Obama’s agenda 97% of the time.
In recent days, Pryor has gone farther than he ever has to put daylight between himself and the president, telling Fox News that the biggest liability in his re-election bid is Obama.
“Well, you know, he has been a drag. I mean, I am just going to be honest about that,” Pryor said. “People here know that I have had my fair share of disagreements with him. You can look at gun control issues, Keystone pipeline. I have never supported one of his budgets.”
Sorry Mark Pryor, it is not Obama that is a drag on your campaign, it is that you voted with Obama’s failed policies that the good people of Arkansas soundly reject. You do not represent the folks in Arkansas and much like Blanche Lincoln in 2010, you will be retired from the US Senate.
Isn’t that interesting that Mark Pryor considers President Barack Obama a drag on his campaign, because in2008 Pryor said that Barack Obama was “exactly the right guy for this moment in history”. REALLY? So Sen. Pryor, do you still feel the same? Challenger Tom Cotton has stated that Pryor has voted with Obama 93% of the time and it has been proved by Politifact to be a true statement. Make no mistake about it, Pryor voted to pass Obamacare. Also, he voted for the Obama illegal’s amnesty plan.
Sen. Mark Pryor cast the deciding vote on Obamacare and says he would do it all over again and vote for it, even though the people of Arkansas strongly disapproved of it and the so-called Affordable Health care law is not affordable and does not ensure you can keep your doctor or your insurance, if you liked it. Pryor does not represent Arkansas, he represents the Obama agenda.
Here’s Pryor’s presidential support rate since 2009, when Obama took office.
Year – Presidential support rate
2009 – 95 percent
2010 – 92 percent
2011 – 95 percent
2012 – 91 percent
2013 – 90 percent
Pryor’s votes have lined up with Obama’s stated position on that vote between 90 and 95 percent of the time for the past five years. Cotton’s figure — 93 percent — is right smack in the middle. (The average is 92.6 percent.) So it’s pretty accurate.
It was not that long ago when Arkansas Senator Mark Pryor was singing the praises of Barack Obama and stumping for him asking others to vote for him. Pryor stated that Obama had the leadership skills, the vision and the hope that America needs. Pryor went on to say in 2008 that elections have consequences. Pryor asked those in attendance to go out and work as hard as they can for Barack Obama and “let’s bring the chance to America that we need”. Flash-forward to 2014 and I guess Pryor has had a change of hear. Guess what Sen. Pryor, elections do have consequences and the change that America needs includes removing you from office.
EXIT QUESTION: Pryor says Barack Obama has been a drag … is that racist?
Harvard Poll: Millennial Voters Turn on Barack Obama and Democrats, Young Voters To Vote GOP over Dems 51% to 47%
Millennial Voters Abandon Barack Obama and his lies of “Hope and Change”.
My how times have changed, especially when Millennial finally realized they were duped by Barack Obama who has done little for hope and change, transparency or to change anything in Washington, DC except make things worse. Barack Obama and Democrats have lost the “Millennial Vote”. A shocking Harvard University poll of 2,029 18- to 29-year-olds showed that they will be“definitely be voting,” 51% want the Republicans in charge, while 47% are favoring Democratic control. According to the poll, Democrats are even losing ground with Hispanics as well. How bad is it for Democrats when Millennials abandon Democratic sinking ship.
And you wonder why Democrat candidates are avoiding the “toxic” president and can not even find it in themselves to even say they have voted for him, when they obviously had. If all of this polling does turn out to be correct, the Democrats could be experiencing a colossal disaster election eve.
Harvard University on Wednesday provided new proof that the Democrats are going to be broadsided in Tuesday’s national elections as millennial voters, in a shocking shift, now prefer a Republican-controlled Congress and give President Obama his second lowest grade ever.
A new and massive poll of 2,029 18- to 29-year-olds from Harvard’s Institute of Politics just released found that of those who say they will “definitely be voting,” 51 percent want the GOP in charge, 47 percent favoring Democratic control.
The unexpected anti-Democratic swing prompted a Canadian Broadcasting Corporation reporter quizzing poll experts on a media conference call to IOP blurted out, “How did the Democrats and Obama screw this up?”
Because the numbers are close, however, Harvard said the kid vote is “up for grabs.”
Still, it is a huge shift from the last IOP midterm poll. In 2010, younger voters kept to their historic trend with 55 percent favoring Democrats, 43 percent Republicans. That is an eight-point change, very good news for the Republicans who had feared that the Obama generation would show up at the polls and in knee-jerk fashion simply pull the Democratic levers.
The shift away from Democrats is likely fed by the millennial dissatisfaction with Obama. The poll from IOP, located at Harvard’s John F. Kennedy School of Government in Cambridge, Mass., found their approval of Obama near the low-water mark, at just 43 percent. It dipped below, to 41 percent, just once.
Harvard University Institute of Politics: More damning poll numbers for Democrats from one of their core constituencies.
President Obama’s Job Approval Rating Decreases, Nears Low-Water mark.
Overall, President Obama’s job performance among America’s 18-29 year-olds has fallen from 47% (April 2014) to 43 percent (53%: disapprove), the second-lowest rating in the IOP polls since he took office (41%: November 2013). Among 18-29 year-olds saying they will “definitely be voting in November,” the president’s job approval rating is 42 percent, with 56% saying they disapprove.
Hispanic Support for President Obama is Weakening.
Support for the president among young Hispanics, who just two years ago supported Obama over Mitt Romney by 51-points (74% to 23%), appears to be weakening. The president’s job approval rating among Hispanics now sits at the lowest since the IOP began tracking the administration in 2009, with only 49 percent saying they approve (46% disapprove) – a significant drop from six months ago among the young Hispanic community (60%: April 2014) and a sharp slide from five years ago (81%: November 2009).
JUST HIS INITIAL RESPONSE JEB?
Former Florida Governor and noncommittal 2016 GOP presidential candidate Jeb Bush is calling our Barack Obama saying that his initial response to Ebola was “incompetent”. Jeb Bush made this comment as he was speaking in Nashville, TN at Vanderbilt University on Tuesday. One might first say, what response? Second, one would say, just his initial response Jeb, Obama continues to act incompetently when it comes to Ebola and the risk he is putting America and Americans at. Third, isn’t it par for the course, pardon the pun, for Barack Obama to act incompetently? That has been the theme to his presidency.
Why was there no policy or plan in place to deal with Ebola?
Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is calling President Barack Obama’s initial response to Ebola “incompetent.”
“It looked very incompetent to begin with, and that fueled fears that may not be justified,” Bush said during a discussion at Vanderbilt University, according to The Tennessean. “And now you have states that are legitimately acting on their concerns, creating a lot more confusion than is necessary.”
Bush said the president was not “clear and concise” about his plans to combat Ebola, and described an incident in which anthrax was mailed in 2001 to a Florida-based tabloid, The National Equirer, during his time in office as an example of a better approach to addressing public fears.
“We gave people a sense of calm, what the plan was,” Bush said. “We talked in plainspoken English. We were totally engaged.”
EXIT COMMENT: Who finds it ironic that Jeb Bush is calling Obama “incompetent” when for years it was Democrats who called Jeb’s brother, President George W. Bush stupid?
