The Spirit of Thanksgiving Triumphs Over Anarchy … Ferguson, Mo Bakery Natalie’s Cake’s & More Receiving Over $200,000 in Online Donations Following ‘No Indictment’ Looting
As one donor wrote, “May God turn this tragedy to a lesson in the power of the love of strangers. I stand with you Natalie and pray God’s blessing and protect on you!”
Natalie’s Cake’s & More, a bakery in Ferguson, MO has received
nearly $100,000 over $200,000 in online donations following the damage that was inflicted on the business by looters and thugs following the “no true bill” no indictment of police officer Darren Wilson. According to Natalie Dubose, who owns Natalie’s Cake’s & More, rioters damaged her shop’s windows and baking equipment overnight Monday. For some unknown reason, the powers that be in Missouri decided not to present a show of force and have the National Guard in Ferguson to protect against the obvious destruction that was going to take place. However, thanks to the kindness of many
As of the writing of this post, the account has reached $212,664. Good defeats evil!!!
A Ferguson bakery owner says she is “so humbly blessed” after receiving nearly $100,000 in online donations to repair her shop that was damaged by looters.
Natalie Dubose, who owns Natalie’s Cake’s & More at 100 S. Florissant Road in Ferguson, said rioters damaged the shop’s windows and baking equipment overnight Monday, after a grand jury decided not to indict Officer Darren Wilson for the Aug. 9 fatal shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown.
Ms. Dubose started a crowdfunding campaign to raise money to repair her shop and has received a wave of support, including from “The Middle’s” Patricia Heaton and “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Brandi Glanville.
“Thank you to actresses Patricia Heaton and Brandi Glanville for supporting me!” she wrote in an update on her page. “I must have missed thousands of other tweets, and I’m so sorry I can’t mention them all. The sweet lady who offered money from her social security check brought me to tears … Thank you to EVERYONE for the kind words, prayers, and emotional support.”
I’m overwhelmed by the amazing generosity I’m receiving. The love, attention, support, the many, many people stopping by to say hello, the offers of assistance, the letters, the anonymous donations, the lovely letters, flowers, telephone calls, media support, and the support of the people of Ferguson.
Thank you for the wonderful comments, I can’t wait to read them all.
I am truly and humbly blessed.

Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) Says Dems Screwed Up Passing Obamacare … “Democrats Blew the Opportunity the American People Gave Them” in 2008 and “Put All of Our Focus on the Wrong Problem”
ISN’T THIS INTERESTING, DEMOCRAT CHUCKY SCHUMER SAYS THAT DEMOCRATS SCREWED UP PASSING OBAMACARE …
Speaking Tuesday at the National Press Club in Washington, DC, New York Democrat Sen. Charles Schumer had an epiphany and stated that “Democrats blew the opportunity the American people gave them” after the 2008 election. Schumer went on to say that, “We took their mandate and put all of our focus on the wrong problem, health care reform.” Gee, ya think? Sen. Schumer was one of the 60 Democrat senators who passed Obamacare, with not one GOP vote, and forced the unpopular law down the throats of Americans. Now suddenly because as we predicted back then, it would be their undoing, Schumer has misgivings that Democrats focused on it first and did not focus on what Americans were dealing with on a day to day basis, a poor economy and unemployment. Schumer told those in attendance “that considering 85% of all Americans got their health care from either the government, Medicare, Medicaid, or their employer … we would still only be talking about only 5% of the electorate.” Wasn’t that the same argument that those opposed to Obamacare were making in 2009? Why blow up the healthcare system in the United States for only 5% of the people? This is a kin to demolishing a house because the back porch needs repair. Not only did Democrats not listen to the people, the law they forced upon them was nothing more than a lie.
Democrats made a strategic mistake by passing the Affordable Care Act, Sen. Charles Schumer (N.Y.), the third-ranking member of the Senate Democratic leadership, said Tuesday.
Schumer says Democrats “blew the opportunity the American people gave them” in the 2008 elections, a Democratic landslide, by focusing on healthcare reform instead of legislation to boost the middle class.
But why is Sen. Schumer talking about the Democrats disastrous decision to pass Obamacare now, is it because they have buyer’s remorse and care about the American people? Not at all, it is because they have taken a political shellacking in 2010 and 2014 and now find themselves in the minority in the House and the Senate. It all has to do with power, not the people. Honestly, who in their right mind thought that an unpopular bill that adversely affected so many people to only benefit a few would not have ramifications? If Democrats could not see that, then they deserve what they got.
SEN. CHUCK SCHUMER (D-NY): After passing the stimulus, Democrats should have continued to propose middle-class oriented programs and built on the partial success of the stimulus. But unfortunately, Democrats blew the opportunity the American people gave them. We took their mandate and put all of our focus on the wrong problem — health care reform. Now the plight of uninsured Americans and the hardships caused by unfair insurance company practices certainly needed to be addressed, but it was not the change we were hired to make. Americans were crying out for the end to the recession, for better wages and more jobs, not changes in health care.
This makes sense, considering 85% of all Americans got their health care from either the government, Medicare, Medicaid, or their employer. And if health care costs were going up, it really did not affect them. The Affordable Care Act was aimed at the 36 million Americans who were not covered. It has been reported that only a third of the uninsured are even registered to vote. In 2010 only about 40% of those registered voting. So even if the uninsured kept with the rate, which they likely did not, we would still only be talking about only 5% of the electorate.
To aim a huge change in mandate at such a small percentage of the electorate made no political sense. So when Democrats focused on health care, the average middle-class person thought the Democrats are not paying enough attention to me. Again, our health care system was riddled with unfairness and inefficiency. It was a problem desperately in need of fixing. The changes that were made are and will continue to be positive changes, but we would have been better able to address it if Democrats had first proposed and passed bold programs aimed at a broader swath of the middle class.
Had we started more broadly, the middle class would have been more receptive to the idea that President Obama wanted to help them. The initial faith they placed in him would have been rewarded. They would have held a more pro-government view and would have given him the permission structure to build a more pro-government coalition. Then Democrats would have been in a better position to tackle our nation’s healthcare crisis.
Healthcare, it wasn’t at the top of the agenda for middle class people …
“We should have done it, we just should not have done it first”. People were hurting and said, what about me, I am losing my job. It’s not health care that is bothering me.”
EXIT QUESTION: So why is Sen. Charles Schumer making these comments about Obamacare? Maybe because Schumer does not want to be the next on the list of 29 Democrat Senators who are no longer in the US Senate who voted for Obamacare.
CBS Face the Nation Host Bob Schieffer Dumb Struck by Obamacare Adviser Jonathan Gruber’s Comments … “I Am Not Wild About the New Plan and How It Became Law Either”
I wonder who was more “dumb struck” this Sunday morning, CBS Bob Shiefer or the public watching CBS and hearing for the first hearing Jonathan Gruber’s name and that an Obamacare adviser called them stupid?
This Sunday on CBS ‘Face the Nation,’ Bob Shieffer provided an editorial that was interesting on a couple of levels. First, how many time do news viewers hear an editorial that is breaking news? CBS News has not covered this story, unless you count the 13 seconds on The Eye Opener. Second, we learned that Shieffer, a lib, is not a fan of Obamacare, nor how the plan became law. However, Bob does need a little learning to have a couple of his questions answered. Mr. Schieffer, Gruber does not think the plan was bad. In fact, he likes it. He, like Barack Obama, knew that the truth of Obamacare would never pass, that is why they lied to the American people. But the ends justify the means and lying to “We the People” is fine in their book.
I was dumbstruck when I heard the comments surfacing from and economist named Jonathan Gruber who was paid $400,000 to help shape the presidents health care plan. First, he told us how the plan passed only because a lack of transparency and this is a direct quote, ‘the stupidity of the American people’. [...] I’ll be honest, while I favor health insurance, I am not wild about the new plan and how it became law either. Here is my question for Mr. Gruber, if all this was as bad as you say, why did you take the money you earned as an adviser? Nor is it to late to give it back. What we have here is another example of the sorry state of American politics where people take money for things in which they don’t believe and whether it is good for the America people is not even a question.
No, what we have here is a sorry state of American politics where we have a President of the United States who perpetrated the greatest hoax on the American people and a complicit media who cared Obama’s water by never asking any questions about a health care plan that many knew was a lie. Let’s get some facts correct, the “stupidity of the American people” that Gruber is referring to is Obamacare supporters, not Conservatives and Republicans. Take a look at the Obamacare polls from the outset at RCP, it has always been widely opposed.
A government, no matter what party is in office, is supposed to be questioned by an unbiased media. The Press is supposed to protect us from an out of control government, not be their propaganda machine. However, today’s MSM has no concept why the US Constitution provided Freedom of the Press.
The First Amendment of the United States Constitution protects the right to freedom of religion and freedom of expression from government interference. See U.S. Const. amend. I. Freedom of expression consists of the rights to freedom of speech, press, assembly and to petition the government for a redress of grievances, and the implied rights of association and belief. The Supreme Court interprets the extent of the protection afforded to these rights. The First Amendment has been interpreted by the Court as applying to the entire federal government even though it is only expressly applicable to Congress. Furthermore, the Court has interpreted, the due process clause of the Fourteenth Amendment as protecting the rights in the First Amendment from interference by state governments.

Charles Krauthammer: Obamacare Architech Jonathon Gruber & Democrats … [They] “Lied About Everything”
THE GREATEST HOAX AND FRAUD EVER PERPETRATED ON THE AMERICAN PEOPLE …
Charles Krauthammer appeared on ‘The Factor’ with Bill O’Reilly to discuss the recent revelations of the Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber’s videos admitting Democrats knowingly lied with malice and forethought to the “stupid” American public in order to pass Obamacare. Krauthammer said … Democrats “lied about everything.”
Krauthammer also said that this was a scandal of the media that this had to be discovered in the 6th year of Obama’s presidency, rather than talked about at the time. I believe that Krauthammer’s comments on a scandal of the media need to be corrected. It was a scandal of the liberal-Democrat media complex of those in the MSM who protected and carried the water for Obama. There were some in the media who did questions Obamacare and knew it was a lie from the outset. We at SM knew it was a pile of BS from the beginning. However, even upon the release of not one, two, three, but four tapes with Gruber’s remarks stating that Obamacare was passed by lying and misleading the public, ABC, CBS and NBC still not covering the story.
“This is exactly what conservatives have been saying for four years. What we’re hearing now is the true voice of liberal arrogance. [T]hey believe they know the right way—they have to lead the masses to the Promised Land, and they can only do it by deception. And that’s what he said openly…[they] lied about everything.”

FOX NEWS Reports that Barack Obama to Announce 10-Point Amnesty Immigration Plan via Exectutive Action Early Next week
WHAT ELSE WOULD YOU EXPECT A COMMUNITY AGITATOR TO DO …
President Barack Obama and Democrats got their Donkey “asses” handed to them in the 2014 midterm elections as a complete and total repudiation of his policies and agenda. So what does Obama do, doubles down on those same reviled policies as would Saul Alinsky. Fox News is reporting that Barack Obama is going to go ahead and poison the well when he returns to Washington, DC by passing an Executive Order declaring amnesty to millions of illegals. Of course he is, because this is what some one does who just wants to cause chaos and dismantle a country. Obama has two years left to destroy America and he could care less whether he does it legally or not. Obama is a lawless president.
Remember when Obama, while pandering to Laraza, said he would like to go it alone, but he could not because that is not is how our sytem works, that is not how our Democracy works, that is not how our Constitution was written. Hmm, what changed other than the fact that this president is looking to reek as much havoc as he can, even though he knows he has no authority to do so. He just does not care.
Video Hat Tip – The Gateway Pundit
President Obama is planning to unveil a 10-part plan for overhauling U.S. immigration policy via executive action — including suspending deportations for millions — as early as next Friday, a source close to the White House told Fox News.
The president’s plans were contained in a draft proposal from a U.S. government agency. The source said the plan could be announced as early as Nov. 21, though the date might slip a few days pending final White House approval.
Obama was briefed at the White House by Homeland Security officials before leaving on his Asia-Pacific trip last week, Fox News has learned.
White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest told reporters traveling with Obama in Burma Thursday that the president had not made a final decision on any executive actions concerning immigration and would not announce any until he returned to Washington.
The plan calls for expanding deferred action for illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children — but also for the parents of U.S. citizens and legal permanent residents.
The latter could allow upwards of 4.5 million illegal immigrant adults with U.S.-born children to stay, according to estimates.

VP Joe Biden Predicted Democrats will Retain Conrol of Senate … “It Wont Change Anything We Are About … I Don’t Think We have to Change the Way We Do Business.”
BIDEN PREDICTS DEMOCRATS WILL RETAIN SENATE … OOPS, MISSED IT BY THAT MUCH, +7 AND COUNTING.
In an interview with CNN on November 3, Vice-President said that he did not agree with the odds makers and predicted that Democrats would retain the Senate. Biden was asked, but what if it did happen, would the White House have to change the way they do business? Biden replied, “No, I don’t think we have to change the way we do business. I think we have to be more direct and clear about what it is that we are looking to do.” WHAT? You mean to tell me that elections don’t have consequences when Democrats lose? Aren’t we the hypocrite. I don’t think so Joe, the American people are pissed off as seen by tonight 2014 midterm shellacking they just gave Obama’s agenda, polices and Democrat rule.
What a shock, Democrats lose badly and it would appear from Biden that the Obama White House is going to double down as per Saul Alinsky.
Exit Polls Show that a Majority of Voters Dissatisfied or Angry with Barack Obama and Washington Inside the Beltway Politics
A majority of Americans are dissatisfied or angry with President Barack Obama’s administration and GOP leaders, according to exit polls released Tuesday and analyzed by CNN.
And about 8 in 10 Americans disapprove of how Congress is handling its job, according to a survey of voters outside of polling places on Election Day.
Nearly six in 10 voters are either dissatisfied or angry with both the White House and Republican leaders in Congress. Less than a third of Americans are satisfied with the Obama administration and GOP leaders.
And voters’ confidence in the government has been seriously shaken, with only 1 in 5 voters saying they trust the government to do the right thing.
Judge Jeanine Pirro Opening Statement on Ebola In The US … “Really, Another Countries Economy is not the Criteria as to Whether We Put Our Families ar Risk”
I agree with Judge Jeanine 100% …
From ‘Justice’ with Judge Jeanine, this is a much watch VIDEO commentary. Judge Jeanine is at her best. Who at this point really trusts out government to be honest with us? When will this president understand that it is his job to protect Americans, not the world! Who trusts our government when they say the chances of an Ebola outbreak in the United States is low? As Judge Jeanine Pirro aptly states and reminds us, right, and you can keep your doctor and healthcare plan too, Al-Qaeda is on the run and ISIS is not Islamic.
Ebola, what a mess.
No one, and I mean no one should be allowed to enter the United States from any West African nation ravaged with Ebola. And any American citizen who goes there and wants to come home needs to be quarantined for 21 days until we figure out what we are doing.
Hmm, pretty amazing that the WAPO failes to mention that Obama was asleep at the switch. How long have we known about Ebola?
Shaken, he flew back to the United States on Aug. 31 and immediately briefed President Obama by phone. The window to act was closing, he told the president in the 15-minute call.
That conversation, nearly six months after the World Health Organization (WHO) learned of an Ebola outbreak in West Africa, was part of a mounting realization among world leaders that the battle against the virus was being lost. As of early September, with more than 1,800 confirmed Ebola deaths in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, there was still no coordinated global response. Alarmed U.S. officials realized they would need to call in the military.
Obama eventually ordered 3,000 military personnel to West Africa; about 200 had arrived by the beginning of this month. They will be joined by health workers from countries such as Britain, China and Cuba. Canada and Japan are sending protective gear and mobile laboratories. Nonprofit organizations such as the Gates Foundation also are contributing. But it’s not at all clear that this belated muscular response will be enough to quell the epidemic before it takes tens of thousands of lives.
Great, first diagnosed case of Ebola in the United States, what’s next … the Bubonic plague?
The CDC, Center for Disease Control, confirmed on Tuesday afternoon that an unidentified man who traveled by plane from Liberia to Dallas, Texas has been diagnosed and has tested positive for the Ebola virus. The individual has been in “strict isolation” at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital since September 29. This is a first and hardly one to stand up and cheer about. This is the first reported diagnosed case of Ebola in the United States. The CDC director stated later in a press conference that the patient’s condition as “critically ill.”
Who thinks that maybe individuals not only need to be screened and checked for fever before they get on a plane from Liberia and countries stricken with Ebola, but when they get off as well? How about they need to be isolated and quarantined fr a period of time until the incubation period id over? Hmm?
“Give me your tired, your poor, your
huddled masses yearning to breathe free Ebola.”
Officials with the Centers for Disease Control have confirmed that a person in Dallas definitely has the Ebola virus. Tuesday’s official determination makes the patient, at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas, the first diagnosed Ebola case in the United States.
Officials with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Texas Department of State Health Services, Presbyterian Hospital and Dallas County Health and Human Services (DCHHS) all participated in an afternoon press conference. CDC Director Thomas Frieden related the information that the individual who tested positive had traveled to Liberia. The person left Liberia on September 19 and arrived in the United States on September 20 with no virus symptoms. Frieden said it was four or five days later that the patient, who is believed to be male, began developing symptoms and was ultimately admitted to Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas on Sunday, September 28.
“We received in our laboratory today specimens from the individual, tested them and they tested positive for Ebola. The State of Texas also operates a laboratory that found the same results,” Frieden said. After the confirmation statement Frieden went on to stress that the testing for Ebola is very accurate, saying that it’s a PCR test of blood.
A patient being treated at a Dallas hospital is the first person diagnosed with Ebola in the United States, health officials announced Tuesday.
The unidentified man left Liberia on September 19 and arrived in the United States on September 20, said Dr. Thomas Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
At that time, the individual did not have symptoms. “But four or five days later,” he began to exhibit them, Frieden said. The individual was hospitalized and isolated Sunday at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital.
Citing privacy concerns, health officials declined to release any details about how the patient contracted the virus or how he was being treated.
The patient is believed to have had a handful of contacts with people after showing symptoms of the virus, and before being isolated, Frieden said. A CDC team was en route to Texas to help investigate those contacts, and Texas Gov. Rick Perry will be in Dallas on Wednesday to hold a news conference.
Press conference at the CDC’s Atlanta headquarters, director Tom Frieden
