Last night, President Obama appeared on MSNBC to undoubtedly give Chris Matthews innumerable thrills up his leg. During the interview, Obama, without being prompted, brought up the IRS targeting scandal, and summarily dismissed it as the actions of “an office in Cincinnati.”
Here’s the proof…
Testimony from various IRS officials document that this was a policy from Washington. Why does President Obama keep lying about it?
Entombed at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean in an upended tugboat for three days, Harrison Odjegba Okene begged God for a miracle.
Academic literature has consistently illustrated that Medicaid patients—adults and children—have inferior access to health care, and notably poorer health outcomes, than privately insured patients.
Obamacare is pushing more and more people into Medicaid. These people may be insured, but that is no guarantee of good access or quality care. It will strain an already strained system, and limit choices for people as more doctors refuse to accept Medicaid and its notably poor reimbursement.
Obama promised no rationing of care. Pelosi said, “A cap on your costs, but no cap on your [Obamacare] benefits.” But this expansion of Medicare, and the limits of the number of servers and services is rationing by default. They lied.
President Barack “if I don’t like the law, I’ll ignore it” Obama’s White House has confirmed that a final deal with Iran, currently being negotiated, will allow for continued uranium enrichment.
But a 2006 UN Security Council resolution specifically forbids Iran from uranium enrichment, to be verified by the International Atomic Energy Commission, via inspections. The last I knew Iran had kicked out the IAEA, which would be natural, given their mad rush to enrich uranium.
So, the President has decided to throw international rules under the bus, and Iran will continue its path toward nuclear power, and presumably nuclear bombs, with President Obama’s blessing.
Way to go, Mr. President. This is a poke in the eye to Israel, Saudi Arabia, and all of Iran’s foes in the Middle East.

File this one under “What could possibly go wrong?” With the payment system for the Obamacare insurance exchange still not built, the Obama administration announced this evening that they will now estimate how much each enrollee owes their insurance company and pay them accordingly. That’s…
Abortion. It’s not a choice. It’s not a right. It’s a human being. Here’s a survivor’s story. An aborted baby who now lives her own life and speaks about what happened to her, a person just like the lives that mothers today are snuffing out at the abortionist’s hand.
News from Santa’s Grotto: Global warming hysterics at the BBC warned us in 2007 that by summer 2013, the Arctic would be ice-free. As with so many other doomsday predictions by warmists, the results turn out to be quite the opposite. Meanwhile, down the other end at Santa’s summer vacation condo: Antarctic sea ice has grown to a record large extent for a second straight year, baffling scientists seeking to understand why this ice is expanding rather than shrinking in a warming world. Antarctic ice is now at a 35-year high. But scientists are “baffled” by the planet’s stubborn refusal to submit to their climate models. Maybe the problem with Nobel fantasist Michael Mann’s increasingly discredited hockey stick is that he’s holding it upside down. Nonetheless, the famously settled science seems to be re-settling…

I think my ultimate preference is Astrud Gilberto’s performance of this song. This is bit more laid back, maybe slightly more somber. But good for chilling on a Saturday night.
