Barack Obama may have the hands down lie of the year; however, rapper Kanye West has maybe the most ignorant, dumb a$$ comment of the year. Both seem to be so out of touch with reality. However, what is it that they have the most in common … narcissism.
Kanye West, rapper, clown, delusional, entitled rich person who lives in another reality, actually had the nerve and audacity to compare what he does to that of police officers and soldiers. Yep, I kid you not. West said in an interview in an interview on US radio program Saturday Night Online on the weekend, “I’m giving my body on the stage, I’m putting my life at risk. This is like being a police officer, or like war. You’re going out to do your job every day, knowing that something could happen to you. “You know, like verbally from the press bashing you. Or you could actually slip on the stage.”
WTF … First of all let me say, being an egotist, over-payed, no talent, self-centered delusion singer has nothing in common with being a police officer or US soldier, who put their lives in danger every day to protect our freedoms. As a matter of fact they risk their lives to give individuals to make dumb ass comments like you just did. The police and soldiers are heroes, you are a zero. This fool is actually comparing being verbally attacked by the media or slipping on stage to police putting themselves into unknown situations every time they pull a car over, every time the enter a home or when they knowingly must deal with murderers, rapists and drug cartels. And dare compare to our military soldiers in harms way and battling terrorists, bullets, bombs and IED’s? IDIOT!
From The Sydney Morning Herald:
Rapper Kanye West is once again courting controversy, this time by comparing the risks he takes on stage every night to those taken by soldiers and police officers performing their duties.
Unlike a hoax in which Kanye supposedly compared himself to the late Nelson Mandela that went viral across social media, Kanye actually made these comments.
“I’m giving my body on the stage, I’m putting my life at risk,” the hip hop megastar and new father said of performing on his Yeezus tour.
“This is like being a police officer, or like war. You’re going out to do your job every day, knowing that something could happen to you.
“You know, like verbally from the press bashing you,” he elaborated, in an interview on US radio program Saturday Night Online on the weekend. “Or you could actually slip on the stage.”
I have always believed that everyone served a purpose in life, some are put on this earth to be a bad example. However, I may have to make Kanye West an exception. There are only so many ignorant things one can say before you are considered completely irrelevant. In other important Kanye West news, Kim Kardashian has blond hair.
I would love to get the take of our own Dana Pretzer of Scared Monkeys Radio, who when he is not doing fantastic interviews discussing missing persons and true crime on The Dana Pretzer Show with guest like Clint Van Zandt, Diane Dimond, Robin Sax, Pat Brown, Wendy Murphy and many, many more like our own Blink from Blink on Crime , he is doing his real job as a police officer in Canada.]]>
It not only may be the lie of the year, it might be the lie of the decade and be remembered as one of the top lies of the century. The Washington Post Politifacts has named its 2013 Lie of the Year and the winner is Barack Obama and “If You Like Your Health Care Plan, You Can Keep It”. I think there are 5 million + individuals who have lost their healthcare coverage thanks to Obamacare who would agree. And most likely 40-50 million more who will do the same when the employer mandate of Obamacare kicks in.
So many lies, so many to choose from when it comes to the least transparent president in history and one who may have perpetrated one of the greatest frauds on the American people, ever.
The Heritage Foundation
It was a catchy political pitch and a chance to calm nerves about his dramatic and complicated plan to bring historic change to America’s health insurance system.
“If you like your health care plan, you can keep it,” President Barack Obama said — many times — of his landmark new law.
But the promise was impossible to keep.
So this fall, as cancellation letters were going out to approximately 4 million Americans, the public realized Obama’s breezy assurances were wrong.
Boiling down the complicated health care law to a soundbite proved treacherous, even for its promoter-in-chief. Obama and his team made matters worse, suggesting they had been misunderstood all along. The stunning political uproar led to this: a rare presidential apology.
For all of these reasons, PolitiFact has named “If you like your health care plan, you can keep it,” the Lie of the Year for 2013. Readers in a separate online poll overwhelmingly agreed with the choice. (PolitiFact first announced its selection on CNN’s The Lead with Jake Tapper.)
For four of the past five years, PolitiFact’s Lie of the Year has revolved around the health care law, which has been subject to more erroneous attacks than any other piece of legislation PolitiFact has fact-checked.
And even after it is obvious that Obama lied, Weasel Zippersopines, there are many on the LEFT that still insist Obama did not lie.
Your tax dollars hard at work, the below video is part of the White House’s new celebrity PR push to get young people to enroll in Obamacare. I will say this, if this VIDEO actually gets young people to sign up for Obamacare then we might as well kiss it all good bye because this country has no future. When I first saw this I thought it was making fun of Obamacare, I never thought it was actually trying to promote it.
One question, does Obamacare cover it if one gets physically ill after watching this VIDEOt?

Following last nights Thursday Night Football game where the San Diego Charges defeated the Denver Broncos 27-20, an altercation occurred that left four individuals stabbed, one in critical condition. The stabbings were a result of an argument between people in two different vehicles that escalated. The incident occurred abut a half hour after the game in a parking lot near the Sports Authority Field at Mile High. The Police are saying that they “have parties in custody and are not currently looking for any other suspects at this time.”
One person is in critical condition after a quadruple stabbing in a parking lot after the Denver Broncos game.
The stabbing occurred at approximately 9:55 p.m. in a privately owned parking lot near Sports Authority Field at Mile High.
The Denver Police tweeted out the following:
Check out the following bizarre and bad behavior:
No matter how the Obama administration and HHS Sec. Sebelius want to push back or spin this, the numbers are terrible. During her testimony yesterday in front of Congress she cited positive trends. Positive trends? Um, anything is better than zero. Sebelius announced that she had ordered an internal review at HHS into how the launch was so badly botched and how the agency can better manage big IT projects and contractors in the future. Hmm, so she announced a review of herself? Why doesn’t she check her email and meeting notes?
Woulda, Coulda, Shoulda … Sebelius says she would have done slower launch of HealthCare.gov
Just about 1.2 million people have gained health coverage through Obamacare, according to new federal data released Wednesday morning.
Approximately 365,000 of those people have purchased private insurance and 803,000 have been determined to be eligible for the public Medicaid program. These numbers count data from both October and November, and show an especially quick growth in HealthCare.gov enrollment. You can see it in this graph:
That’s the more positive frame. The more negative view is to look at these numbers in comparison to projections from before the health-care law’s launch. The White House had previously projected a half-million private insurance enrollments through the exchange in October and 1.2 million people through the end of November. Those numbers are just for private insurance, and exclude Medicaid. We’re now at the end of November, and still behind that target.
The evidence available so far suggests that enrollment will pick up even quicker this month in the lead-up to coverage starting Jan. 1. As many as 27,000 people signed up in a single day last week. Insurance shoppers don’t seem to be giving up — and we’ll see next month whether that means the administration can finally hit its projections.
Seminole County prosecutors announced that they will not file domestic violence charges against George Zimmerman after his girlfriend, Samantha Scheibe, recanted in an affidavit that Zimmerman pointed a gun at her face. In a he said, she said case with limited evidence and the main witness who recanted and did not want to testify, the prosecutors had little choice but to drop the charges. The initial charges stemmed from a domestic violence incident that took place on November 18, 2013 where Zimmerman faced aggravated assault, battery and criminal mischief. OK George, even a cat only has 9 lives … NOW GO AWAY!

Prosecutors say they will not file domestic violence charges against George Zimmerman after his girlfriend said in a sworn statement she did not want to pursue the case.
State Attorney Phil Archer in Seminole County said in a statement Wednesday that Samantha Scheibe’s decision not to cooperate and the lack of other corroborating evidence made a successful prosecution unlikely.
Zimmerman had faced charges of aggravated assault, battery and criminal mischief following a Nov. 18 incident at the central Florida house he shared with Scheibe. She initially told police Zimmerman pointed a shotgun at her face, then recanted in an affidavit filed this week.
Statement made from Phil Archer, State Attorney Phil Archer in Seminole County:
The Seminole County Sheriff’s Office had probable cause to arrest Zimmerman after Scheibe called 911 and reported Zimmerman was armed and behaving threateningly.
“However, upon reviewing the recent affidavit … and taking into account the conflicting statements about what occurred, the failure to cooperate with the ongoing investigation, and a lack of any other corroborating evidence or witnesses, there is no reasonable likelihood of successful prosecution,” said Archer, the top prosecutor for Seminole and Brevard counties.
A six year old Colorado school boy has been suspended from school for sexual harassment and had it placed on his permanent record for kissing the hand of another 6 year old girl. ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!! The superintendent at School District RE-1 says Hunter’s record will remain within the district and that Hunter’s actions fit the school policy description of ‘sexual harassment.’ This superintendent needs not only to be suspended, but fired. How exactly can a 6 year old be suspended for something that they don’t even know what it is? Does anyone think Hunter knows what sex is or sexual harassment? Good grief, these kids are in school to learn and these fools don’t think that this should be more of a teaching moment than punishing him and giving him a scarlet letter? Do these educators understand what the word “INTENT” means? I guess this does not meet “Common Core”.
What happened to the country I grew up in? If this is considered sexual harassment or anything other than two 6 year olds being 6 year olds, then a certain 2nd grade girl who I went to elementary school who planted one on my lips under the piano in music class is in for some serious trouble .
A six-year-old boy kissed a classmate and got suspended for sexual harassment. Now his mom is fighting to get the incident removed from his school record.
“It was during class yeah,” Hunter said. “We were doing reading group. And I leaned over and kissed her on the hand. That’s what happened.”
For that, six-year-old Hunter is at home instead of at school.
“I did something wrong,” Hunter said. “They sent me to the office, fair and square. I feel sorry. I’m trying to be good at school.”
“She was fine with it; they are “boyfriend and girlfriend”, Hunter’s mother, Jennifer said. “The other children saw it and went to the music teacher. That was the day I had the meeting with the principal, where she first said sexual harassment. This is taking it to an extreme that doesn’t need to be met with a six-year-old. Now my son is asking questions; what is sex mommy? It should not ever be said, sex, in a sentence with a six-year-old.”
UPDATE I: ‘Sexual harassment’ wording dropped from 6-year-old’s school record.
So he still gets a “misconduct” blemish on his record. I guess its better than this these educators sending this child to prison and making him register for the sex predator’s list.
Cañon City Schools Superintendent Robin Gooldy released the following statement to ABC News: “The parents of the student and the principal met this morning. One of the outcomes of the conference was to change the category of the disciplinary offense from “sexual harassment” to “misconduct”. The student has returned to school.”
The Politico is reporting that Jesse Ryan Loskarn, Senator Lamar Alexander’s (TN-R) Chief of Staff was arrested Wednesday afternoon by the US Postal Inspection Service on charges of possessing and distributing child porn. Isn’t that special. Loskarn was arrested at his home in Washington, DC and led out in handcuffs Authorities searched his home and also searched his computer in Alexander’s office. Loskarn is expected to be arraigned on Thursday morning in federal court; however, he was immediately placed on administrative leave without pay.
GOP Sen. Lamar Alexander’s chief of staff was arrested Wednesday afternoon on charges of possessing and distributing child pornography, the Justice Department said.
Jesse Ryan Loskarn — who goes by his middle name — is expected to be arraigned on Thursday morning in federal court.
“Jesse Ryan Loskarn, 35, of Washington, D.C., was arrested this afternoon by the U.S. Postal Inspection Service based on probable cause for possession and distribution of child pornography charges,” a Justice Department spokesman said in a statement. “He remains in custody pending a court hearing that is expected to be scheduled for tomorrow at the federal courthouse in Washington, D.C.”
Postal Service agents searched Loskarn’s home earlier in the day, and then took him into custody. Loskarn’s computer in Alexander’s office was also searched, with the senator’s permission, Senate sources said.
Statement from Sen. Alexander:
“I was just informed by the United States Senate legal counsel’s office that law enforcement agents are conducting a search of the personal residence of Ryan Loskarn, the chief of staff of my Washington, D.C., office regarding allegations involving child pornography. I am stunned, surprised and disappointed by what I have learned.”
JUST ONE MORE REASON TO VOTE FOR TENNESSEE STATE CONGRESSMAN JOE CARR IN THE 2014 GOP TENNESSEE SENATE PRIMARY!!!]]>
The most recent Wall Street Journal/NBC New poll shows that the affects and lies of Obamacare have not yet reached a its low with the American people. The affects of Obamacare have taken its toll on the political fortunes for Democrats, and so it should. Eventually the reality of the fraud versus the political rhetoric was going to affect “We the People” and it has. People are outraged and they should be. The problem with these numbers is that they have not cratered. Just as Nancy Pelosi said, “we have to pass the bill in order to find out what is in it”; Americans are finding out every month, every week and every day just how bad Obamacare is and just how bad they were mislead by Obama and Democrats. The Democrats own Obamacare 100% as they passed this unpopular law against the will of the American people. Now they look for cover and are jumping from the ship.
Obama ends the year at all-time low. How do Democrats think the American people are going to react to the greatest fraud ever perpetrated on them?
Perhaps more significantly, Obama has seen a drop in key presidential attributes.
Just 28 percent give the president high grades for being able to achieve his goals (down 16 points from January); only 37 percent give him high marks for being honest and straightforward (down 5 points from June); and 44 percent give him high marks for being able to handle a crisis (down another 5 points since June).
The federal health-care law is becoming a heavier political burden for President Barack Obama and his party, despite increased confidence in the economy and the public’s own generally upbeat sense of well-being, a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll suggests.
Disapproval of Mr. Obama’s job performance hit an all-time high in the poll, at 54%, amid the flawed rollout of the health law. Half of those polled now consider the law a bad idea, also a record high.
The survey of 1,000 adults conducted between Dec. 4 and Dec. 8 found a sharp erosion since January in many of the attributes—honesty, leadership, ability to handle a crisis—that had kept Mr. Obama aloft through the economic and political turmoil of his first term.
Asked what shaped their view of the president this year, almost 60% cited the 2010 health-care law, the Affordable Care Act, as a chief factor. The poll found faith in Mr. Obama had dropped noticeably in recent months among young voters and Hispanics, two groups that had been among his steadiest supporters.
“The president is being weighed down by one issue, his health-care law,” said Democratic pollster Fred Yang, who helped direct the poll. “It’s probably fair to say that as goes health care, so goes the Obama presidency for the next year.”

Forgive me if I am a bit skeptical of Time’s choice for Pope Francis as being their ‘Person of the Year” for 2013, but I am. Not that Pope Francis is not a good man or deserving of this award, but TIME made the choice not because of his religious virtue and certainly not because they believe in Catholicism or the message it spreads. Doesn’t it feel like it was yesterday they were doing stories on the coverups of sexual predator Catholic priests? Let’s face it, the reason why they chose him is because Pope Francis criticized “modern capitalism” ,in an attack on “the idolatry of money.”
Like I said, Pope Francis is an easy and justifiable choice, it is the reasons why he was picked that are suspect. In any other year Edward Snowden, the NSA whistle-blower would have won this hands down. He exposed the spying ways of the NSA and will continue to do so for months and years to come. Snowden’s exposing of the NSA has even made US lawmakers and foreign leaders question what this spy organization is doing.
However, Snowden finished second to Pope Francis for pretty much one reason and that is Time’s media bias to push Obama’s agenda of “income equity” otherwise known as socialism.
Once there was a boy so meek and modest, he was awarded a Most Humble badge. The next day, It was taken away because he wore it. Here endeth the lesson.
How do you practice humility from the most exalted throne on earth? Rarely has a new player on the world stage captured so much attention so quickly—young and old, faithful and cynical—as has Pope Francis. In his nine months in office, he has placed himself at the very center of the central conversations of our time: about wealth and poverty, fairness and justice, transparency, modernity, globalization, the role of women, the nature of marriage, the temptations of power.
And yet in less than a year, he has done something remarkable: he has not changed the words, but he’s changed the music. Tone and temperament matter in a church built on the substance of symbols—bread and wine, body and blood—so it is a mistake to dismiss any Pope’s symbolic choices as gestures empty of the force of law. He released his first exhortation, an attack on “the idolatry of money,” just as Americans were contemplating the day set aside for gratitude and whether to spend it at the mall.
According to the UK Daily Mail, a recent Quinnipiac poll has President Barack Obama’s job approval rating continuing to fall, down to 38% while a whopping 57% disapprove. Barack Obama’s poll numbers are reaching epically bad levels as there is no end in sight for Americans finding out further bad news regarding Obamacare and the 2000 unread pages in how it affects people’s lives. Americans continue to find out and realize that they were lied to and the impacts are directly being felt. Obama is seeing lows across the board in handling the economy, healthcare, foreign policy and is seeing support from key groups like Latinos and Millennials completely fall apart. But wait, there is one thing that Obama gets high marks in, 52% polled say that Obama is not honest or trustworthy.
Once a president loses the trust of the people, they are finished, #You Lie!
Barack Obama is facing poll numbers that are now in the same territory as President George W. Bush’s following Hurricane Katrina.
The Quinnipiac University Polling Institute released numbers on Tuesday showing that just 38 per cent of registered voters approve of the job Obama is doing as president, with a whopping 56 per cent saying they disapprove.
The president has lost his landslide electoral edge among young voters, too, with a negative 41–49 per cent rating among 18- to 29-year-old voters. His once formidable support among Hispanics has also evaporated: They now support him by an historically small 50–43 per cent margin.
Worse for Obama’s fast-approaching legacy-building years, the public believes he is not ‘honest and trustworthy,’ by a 52–44 per cent score. A smaller majority, 51 per cent, said he lacks ‘strong leadership qualities.’
More bad news for Obama from the Quinnipiac poll … (pdf).
Today, Obama gets negative scores of 6 – 92 percent among Republicans, 30 – 62 percent among independent voters, 31 – 64 percent among men, 44 – 49 percent among women and 29 – 65 among white voters. Approval is 76 – 18 percent among Democrats and 85 – 9 percent among black voters.
- 37 – 59 percent on his handling of the economy
- 34 – 62 percent on health care
- 42 – 49 percent on foreign policy
- 40 – 48 percent approval for his handling of the situation in Iran
- 49 percent young voters now saying they disapprove of his job performance
- 43 percent of Hispanics now oppose Obama
