Barack Obama en el otoño político libre …
According to a recent Gallup poll, it appears that some one’s job approval poll numbers are in free fall with pretty much every demographic, and Hispanics are at the top of the list. Barack Obama’s job approval numbers are down with Latinos this year from 75% to 52%. ¡Dios mío … I guess me can expect an Obama mad rush for amnesty. However, that is not the only group that Obama has lost ground with. Obama has also lost Moderates (-16), 18-29 year olds (-15), Independents (-15), women (-14), Conservative Democrats (-14) , Democrats (-13), 30-49 year olds (-12), 50-64 year olds (-12) and even Blacks at -9. However, it appears that Legal Insurrection has found one group that has maintained their support for Obama, Conservative Republicans are only at -2, down from 7% to 5%. HA!
Not only does Obama not have coattails, he is now considered toxic.
Can we call this a total and complete loss of the America people? Imagine if the election was held today with the American people knowing the truth about many of Obama’s lies and the MSM was forced into not carrying the water 100% of the time for their leader?
President Barack Obama’s job approval rating averaged 41% in November, down 12 percentage points from 53% last December, his high-water mark since his first year in office. Hispanics’ approval has dropped 23 points over the last 12 months, the most among major subgroups, and nearly twice the national average.
Hispanics’ approval ratings of Obama have shown the most variation of any group’s ratings throughout his presidency. That means their views of him are less firmly anchored than those of other groups, which may help explain why their opinions of the president soured more than any other group’s in recent months. Despite the significant decline in their approval ratings over the past 12 months, a majority of Hispanics, 52%, still approve of the job Obama is doing.
A note to Republicans, namely Speaker John Boehner and the GOP leadership in the House … if you pass a BS amnesty bill you will collapse the Republican party forever. Hot Air correctly points out that the Democrats do not own the Latino vote. You have an opportunity to make real reform with immigration and deal with this issue in a common sense way. One of those is to actually uphold the oaths that all of you took and to follow the US Constitution and uphold the laws of the land. I have always believed that Hispanics were not a monolithic voting block and were interested in many things other than immigration (amnesty), like the economy, real healthcare reform, jobs and the truth.
If the first two months of ObamaCare could push him nearly underwater with Latinos, what will another year of rate shock and shrinking provider networks do? Without lifting a finger, the GOP may be back in play for this demographic — not so much that they’d win it outright, but enough that they could close the gap to, say 15-20 points instead of 40-45. In a tight election, that would be ruinous for Democrats.

What a Message from Portland, Oregan … City Shuts Down 11 Year Old Madison Root Selling Mistletoe to Fund Braces, But OK to Beg for Money
WELCOME TO A LACK OF COMMON SENSE FROM PORTLAND, OR …
All 11 yer old Madison Root wanted to do was help her dad pay for her braces that were going to cost $4800 by selling mistletoe. It’s Christmas time, what better gift to sell than freshly picked mistletoe in a cute package with a red bow? Well, one would think. That was until she decided to see her mistletoe next to the Skidmore Fountain in Downtown Portland, Oregon and a private security guard asked Madison to stop selling because city ordinance bans commerce like that without proper approval. UNREAL … papers, where are your papers!!!
I am sure this was the intent of the ordinance and it was meant for 11 year old’s. More so, I am sure this is what Our Founding Fathers had intended when forming this great nation. But in this day and age government interference and regulation have increased so much that they would squash a little girl’s efforts and entrepreneurial spirit to help her dad pay for her braces. Especially, in this day and age when we hear stories of so many young kids that just expect things, Madison wanted to help. Oh yea, did we tell you that Madison Root was not allowed to sell her mistletoe without approval, but it would have been OK for her to beg. There is a message to teach the young.
She’s hoping to raise money to chip in for her braces. The dentist says they’ll cost $4,800.
“I felt like I could help my dad with the money,” she said.
Madison and her dad bagged up the mistletoe and started selling them next to the Skidmore Fountain in Downtown Portland on Saturday morning.
That’s also where the Portland Saturday Market holds its weekly venue.
A private security guard asked Madison to stop selling because city ordinance bans commerce like that without proper approval.
“I wouldn’t think I’d have any problems because people are asking for money, people are selling stuff, this is a public place,” said Madison.
And she’s right — to a point.
In fact, we saw people protesting, hold signs, playing music, and begging all over the area on Sunday morning as well.
The Saturday Market is incredibly diverse.
You can buy whistles, order crepes and sign a marijuana petition all without walking more than ten steps.
But you can’t open a business without going through the market’s formal application process. The market sets rules for vendors which Madison agrees make sense.
Begging is different.
Remember when President Barack Obama spoke of the job recovery that was under way … Neither do most Americans!
During Barack Obama first State of the Union Address in 2009 he stated the following: “It’s an agenda that begins with jobs. As soon… As soon as I took office.” Instead he focused 100% on passing Obamacare against the will of the people.
According to the most recent CNN poll, not only is Barack Obama struggling with low job approval numbers and trust issues on Onamacare, with regards to the #1 issue facing Americas today, the economy, 59% things are going badly, only a mere 24% believe the economic recovery is under way. Exactly how long has Obama been making that promise? And instead of making jobs the number one issue, he goes out of his way to destroy jobs with over-regulation and his healthcare and energy agenda. Obamacare has caused business to fire individuals or reduce the jobs from full-time to part-time. An his energy policies are doing their best to destroy the coal industry in the United States.
Americans views on the state of the nation are turning increasingly sour, according to a new national poll.
And a CNN/ORC International survey released Friday also indicates that less than a quarter of the public says that economic conditions are improving, while nearly four in ten say the nation’s economy is getting worse.
Forty-one percent of those questioned in the poll say things are going well in the country today, down nine percentage points from April, and the lowest that number has been in CNN polling since February 2012.Fifty-nine percent say things are going badly, up nine points from April.
Besides an obvious partisan divide, which contributes to a urban-rural gap, the survey also indicates a difference of opinion between younger and older Americans.
So its not just Obamacare that Americans are dissatisfied with Barack Obama. It is coming from all directions and at some point it will reach the point of no return, if it already hasn’t.
Yea, imagine if we actually did what Obama promised and did oil exploration in the US and made dependency on Middle East oil a thing of the past. Imagine if we regulated less and allowed the American industrial machine to take off. Imagine if we allowed for increases in nuclear, clean coal, oil, natural gas and the dreaded fracking
Imagine what we could accomplish if we followed their example. Think about the America within our reach: A country that leads the world in educating its people. An America that attracts a new generation of high-tech manufacturing and high-paying jobs. A future where we’re in control of our own energy, and our security and prosperity aren’t so tied to unstable parts of the world. An economy built to last, where hard work pays off, and responsibility is rewarded.
The very small business jobs that Obama is touting are the very one’s that Obamacare is destroying.
But we have never measured progress by these yardsticks alone. We measure progress by the success of our people. By the jobs they can find and the quality of life those jobs offer. By the prospects of a small business owner who dreams of turning a good idea into a thriving enterprise. By the opportunities for a better life that we pass on to our children.
This recession has also compounded the burdens that America’s families have been dealing with for decades – the burden of working harder and longer for less; of being unable to save enough to retire or help kids with college. [Save enough? How are Americans supposed to save with the increase in energy costs, the price at the pump and high premium costs of Obamacare? Let along college ids can't get jobs.]
The plan that has made all of this possible, from the tax cuts to the jobs, is the Recovery Act. That’s right – the Recovery Act, also known as the Stimulus Bill. Economists on the left and the right say that this bill has helped saved jobs and avert disaster. But you don’t have to take their word for it. [Yea, how did that "Hopey-Changey" stimulus waste of tax payers money work out for you America?]
That is why jobs must be our number one focus in 2010, and that is why I am calling for a new jobs bill tonight.[What was his #1 focus, jobs or Obamacare?]
You don’t need to hear another list of statistics to know that our economy is in crisis, because you live it every day. It’s the worry you wake up with and the source of sleepless nights. It’s the job you thought you’d retire from but now have lost, the business you built your dreams upon that’s now hanging by a thread, the college acceptance letter your child had to put back in the envelope.
The impact of this recession is real, and it is everywhere. [Hmm, doesn't it sound like Barack is talking about the affects of Obamacare on families and businesses?]

America Remembers John F. Kennedy 50 Years Later after that Fateful Day … “Anybody here seen my old friend John?”
November 22, 1963 … the day that shook America in Dallas, TX.
For those that were alive on that fateful day, yesterday most Americans remembered where they were the day that President John F. Kennedy was shot and assassinated while traveling in his presidential motorcade in Dallas, Texas. It was the day that shocked America, the world and forever changed the United States with innocence lost. In a time in which few can even conceive or remember when there were three news channels, no-24-7 news, no internet, no social media, no Twitter … the nation was rocked with the unthinkable, the death of a president as all watched in horror.
At 12:29 pm CST, as President Kennedy’s uncovered limousine entered Dealey Plaza, Nellie Connally, then the First Lady of Texas, turned around to President Kennedy, who was sitting behind her, and commented, “Mr. President, you can’t say Dallas doesn’t love you,” which President Kennedy acknowledged. Then life changed, everything changed as we knew it. John Fitzgerald Kennedy, the 35th President of the United States, was assassinated at 12:30 pm CST, Friday, November 22, 1963, in Dealey Plaza, Dallas, Texas. JFK was taken to Parkland Hospital, Trauma Room 1 where he was treated for his mortal wounds to his head.
At 1:00 p.m., CST President John F. Kennedy was pronounced dead. As one doctor was reported to say, “We never had any hope of saving his life.” And sadly we were presented with another good man who died too young.
Anybody here seen my old friend John?
Can you tell me where he’s gone?
He freed a lot of people,
But it seems the good they die young.
I just looked around and he’s gone.
50 years later we remember President John F. Kennedy, a life taken far to soon and his vision for America that was cut short that Day in Dealey Plaza by an assassins bullet. We remember the man who is frozen in time because of the tragic nature in how he was killed and we can only wonder how things, so many things would have been different in America had he lived. Too many focus on the “conspiracy” theories of how JFK died or his affair with Marilyn Monroe, but there was so much more to a president who captured the imagine of the country. I was not alive the day JFK died, but being a history major I had read much of his life. I have attended the Kennedy Library and been to grave, the “Eternal Flame,” at Arlington National Cemetery as well as grew up in New England so was surrounded by the lore of the Kennedy’s most of my life. JFK was a unique man, an inspirational individual who knew how to communicate with people, bring them together and make people feel good about themselves. But he was much more than that, he was a leader, a man who had big goals as seen by is efforts to get the US into space and he was the one who asked us,“ask not what your country can do for you can do for your country” (VIDEO). Where are those leaders today?
‘Abraham, Martin and John’ - Dion
U.S. President John F. Kennedy was remembered as a transcendent leader of a rising nation at a ceremony in Dallas on Friday, the 50th anniversary of his assassination, while bitterness remained for many who disbelieve the official story of how he died.
“Our collective hearts were broken,” Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings told a crowd of about 5,000 who came to a frigid Dealey Plaza, near where Kennedy was slain, for a commemoration marked with prayer, song and tears.
Remembered fondly for his youthful vigor and his glamorous wife, Kennedy remains one of Americans’ favorite presidents for his handling of the Cuban missile crisis, his call to public service with programs such as the Peace Corps and a promise – later fulfilled – to land an American on the moon before the end of the 1960s.
“A new era dawned and another waned a half century ago when hope and hatred collided right here in Dallas,” Rawlings said.
The assassination cut short “Camelot,” as the 1,000 days of the Kennedy presidency became known. He was 46 when he died
This is how I remember John F. Kennedy, as a leader, a unifier and a man with a vision of big ideas and one’s that made America better, not just a political party. Take a good listen to what a true leader sounds like. I hear an awful lot of “WE”, not me or I. JFK wanted the United States to be a leader in the world, number one, not a follower. Where has my old friend John gone, it is true that the good so die young.
“The exploration of space will go ahead, whether we join it or not. And it is one of the greatest adventures of all times. And no nation which expects to be the leaders of other nations can expect to stay behind in this race for space”.
“We Choose to go to the moon, not because they are easy, because they are hard”
150th Anniversary of President Abraham Lincoln Gettysburg’s Address: “this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”
On November 19, 1863, President Abraham Lincoln commemorated a Civil War battlefield in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, by vowing that “government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.” THE GETTYSBURG ADDRESS, is one if not the greatest speeches ever from one of the United States greatest presidents ever. The key word there is “UNITED”. This is what leadership looks like and it is comical if not disrespectful to ever make comparisons to Lincoln and his accomplishments. Never has a US president ever resided over more troubling and divisive times in the United States, NEVER!
Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this
continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the
proposition that all men are created equal.
Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that
nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure.
We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to
dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who
here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether
fitting and proper that we should do this.
But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate— we can not conse-
crate—we can not hallow— this ground. The brave men, living and
dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor
power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remem-
ber what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It
is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished
work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced.
It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining
before us— that from these honored dead we take increased devotion
to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion—
that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in
vain — that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of free-
dom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the
people, shall not perish from the earth.
November 19. 1863.
And a small and irrelevant President Barack Obama does not show for the anniversary even though he used references to Lincoln during elections. Obama announced his candidacy in 2007 near Lincoln’s law office in Springfield, IL abd tried to tie himself to Abe. In the end, Obama was a no show. Some how Barack Obama can play 150 rounds of golf, but not show up on such an important anniversary of a president he claims to respect. Hmm, think it is because it would make Obama look even smaller than he already is? Did Obama really not go to this event because of the Healthcare.gov debacle?
But Obama, unlike his predecessors, stuck to his decision not to go to such an anniversary commemoration. His decision is doubly surprising because he has so often tied himself to his fellow Illinoisan Lincoln. Obama announced his candidacy in 2007 near Lincoln’s law office in Springfield, Ill. Both in 2009 and 2013, he took the oath of office with his hand on Lincoln’s Bible. And in 2009, he replicated Lincoln’s 1861 route from Philadelphia to Washington for the Inauguration.
“It didn’t work schedule-wise,” was the explanation tweeted Tuesday morning by Dan Pfeiffer, the president’s senior adviser. The schedule released by the White House showed the president at 10 a.m. in the Oval Office receiving his regular daily briefing. Then, at 10:45, he welcomed to the White House a group of senators to brief them on the latest developments in Iran. That briefing was not scheduled until Monday, well after the White House declined the Gettysburg invitation. Later in the day — after he would have been back from the planned ceremony at Gettysburg — he goes to the Four Seasons Hotel to address The Wall Street Journal CEO Council’s annual meeting and talk about the economy.
Bipartisan Vote: House Passes Bill That OKs ‘Keep Your Health Plan’ for Obamacare as 39 Democrats Split from Barack Obama
Finally a bi-partisan vote on Obamacare, but not sure how much good it will do.
Democrats defect and pass Republican fix for Obamacare … The House of Representatives voted 261-to-157 as 39 Democrats split from President Barack Obama and passed the “Keep Your Health Plan Act of 2013.” Th bill to allow Americans to keep their health care plans banned because of Obamacare. There is no word as to whether Democrat Senate Majority leader Harry Reid would allow this bill to come up for a vote and President Obama has stated that if H.R. 3350 was sent to him, he would veto it. Yup, sound like Obama really wants to make “fixes” to help the American people, doesn’t it? However, the real story of this vote is that 39 Democrats split with Obama and sided with the bill sponsored by Rep. Fred Upton (R-MI).
Chairman Fred Upton Urges House to Pass the Keep Your Health Plan Act of 2013
Thirty-nine House Democrats joined 222 Republicans to pass the “Keep Your Health Plan Act of 2013,” a bill to allow Americans to keep certain health care plans banned because of Obamacare.
The 261-to-157 vote was the largest sign of defection yet for President Obama on his signature legislative achievement.
Many of the Democrats who supported the bill, sponsored by Rep. Fred Upton, R-Mich., are in highly competitive districts and were eager to cast a vote in support of fixing the troubled Affordable Care Act.
It was the latest in a series of embarrassing blows for the White House. But it remained symbolic. The Senate won’t take up the bill and the White House threatened to veto it.
House Speaker John Boehner called the vote “a big, bipartisan statement about the need to make things right” regarding the hang-ups in the controversial law.
CNN: Democrats defect, back GOP Obamacare fix
As stated at The Politco, Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) said in the weekly Republican address Saturday, “We need long-term solutions to the Obamacare debacle, not short-term political fixes like those recently proposed by the President and Senate Democrats that simply will not work.”
HHS Sec. Kathleen Sebelius Says: “The Majority of People Calling for Me to Resign, I would Say, are People I Don’t work For”
Remember when Abraham Lincoln said during the Gettysburg Address, “… that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.?” Hmm, well welcome to Obamaland …
This week HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius spoke in Arizona after a stop at an Onamacare call center stating that she will not step down as a result of the disastrous rollout of the Obamacare website, Healthcare.gov. Sebelius said that “the majority of people calling for me to resign I would say are people who I don’t work …”. Really, and I thought she worked for “We the People” of the United States of America? The Obama administration appears to have forgot that concept. Sebelius best watch out, the sound she is haring is Barack Obama firing up the bus.
“No one has been fired… Well, the majority of people calling for me to resign I would say are people who I don’t work for and did not want the program to work in the first place. I have had frequent conversations with the president and I have committed to him that my role is the get the program up and running.”
For the money line 8:45 mark of the Video
Nearly three dozen legislators have called for the resignation of Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, whom they say should be held responsible for the disastrous implementation of ObamaCare.
After a rocky introduction of the controversial Affordable Care Act – which included a widespread failure of the health care exchange website, the cancellation of thousands of private health insurance plans, and complaints from thousands more Americans who saw their premiums and deductibles skyrocket — Rep. John Fleming, R-LA, sent a letter to the White House Wednesday co-signed by more than 30 of his colleagues asking Sebelius to step down.

Illegal Immigrant Cecilio Rivera-Lozano Arrested for molesting 11 Year Old Girl in Naples, FL … Epidemic of Child Molestation Cases by Illegals
Another illegal alien doing the jobs that Americans just don’t want to do … With illegal immigration, ask yourself, does our government care about the children?
24 year old “illegal alien” Cecilio Rivera-Lozano has been arrested in Naples, Florida for molesting an 11 year old girl. The victim told Collier County Sheriff’s Office. that she had been sexually assaulted for almost every day for the past 8 months. Rivera-Lozano is being held with no bond due to him being an illegal immigrant and being considered a flight risk. Imagine that?
Cecilio Rivera-Lozano – illegal immigrant sexual predator
A Collier County man was arrested for allegedly molesting an 11-year-old girl.
According to reports, a school counselor reported an 11-year-old girl had been sexually abused.
The victim said she had moved to Naples from Honduras about nine months ago.
She told deputies Cecilio Rivera-Lozano, 24, had been sexually abusing her almost every day for the past eight months beginning in March.
On Wednesday, the victim told a neighbor Rivera-Lozano had been forcing sex acts upon her. The neighbor reported the allegations to the victim’s mother and school counselor.
Hmm, and Barack Obama wants to push “illegal” immigration reform and amnesty for those that are in the United States illegally as there is an epidemic of child molestation cases perpetrated by illegals. Sorry, a broken immigration system where the government refuses to enforce the laws on the books and protect the border does not mean to provide amnesty for child molesters.
How much longer will the media remain silent on this human rights crisis?
Since President Obama’s announcement of last year’s executive order, basically putting a halt to nearly all deportations, combined with the amnesty bill currently making its way through the U.S. Senate, there has been a tremendous increase in the number of illegal aliens coming to this country over our largely unprotected border with Mexico.Related topicsImmigration[/*]Illegal Aliens’ Crimes Against Children[/*]amnesty[/*]liberal media bias[/*][/list]
Of course, an increase in the number of crimes committed by those same illegal aliens has seemingly exploded during this same period. In particular, instances of rape and child molestation at the hands of those here illegally have reached epidemic proportions. The following list represents only a few of those crimes that have taken place in the last month, alone: (read the full story here)
- In northern Wisconsin, 25-year-old Paulo Sheispan-Landero, an illegal immigrant from Mexico, is charged with first degree sexual assault on a child under 13, a felony which would fall under Wisconsin’s Jessica’s Law.
- 20-year-old sex assault suspect appeared in Marathon County, WI court charged Eduardo Organista-Temich with two counts of molesting a 7-year-old girl.
- Police announced the arrest of 3 x departed illegal alien Juan Francisco Gonzalez, 39, who they believe is responsible for molesting several young boys in recent months, ages of the victims are between 7 and 10 years of age.
- Illegal immigrant Velasquez Castillo sits in Jackson County Court Thursday charged with child molestation.

Take a good look at what peaceful disobedience looks like …
Memorials and monuments belong to the American people and any government that would barricade an open air, outside memorial is nothing more than an act of tyranny. From KLTV, watch patriots rip through the tape, move the barriers and take back what belongs to “We the People” as they walk up the steps of the Lincoln Memorial and celebrate.
Check out the many pics and stories on Facebook: Million Vet March on the Memorials.
UPDATE I: From WTOP, Crowd storms World War II Memorial.
Fantastic pic from today’s Veteran’s March
Thousands of people converged on the World War II Memorial on the National Mall on Sunday morning and tore down the barricades blocking it off, protesting the closure of the memorial during the federal government shutdown.
Beginning at about 9:30 a.m., Sens. Mike Lee, R-Utah, and Ted Cruz, R-Texas, as well as former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, were among the luminaries in a crowd that chanted “Tear down these walls!” and sang “God Bless America” as well as other patriotic songs as they entered the memorial, which has been closed since the government shutdown that began Oct. 1.
Tractor-trailers headed down 17th Street toward the Mall, blaring their horns. The Metropolitan Police Department blocked off the street, prompting the crowd to head up the street, shouting at the police to move their vehicles.
Cruz said that President Obama was using veterans as political pawns in the shutdown.
