Scary: Obama Taskforce Studying How to 'Control Your Behavior'
As Allen West reminds us, the statement "In a universe of deceit, truth becomes a revolutionary act" is often attributed to George Orwell ... however the statement is eerily appropriate to Barack Obama in light of this latest revelation about the Obama administration.
Richard Williams reports at Politico:
Earlier this year, the White House revealed that it is establishing a task force dedicated to studying how to motivate you -- just as parents do -- to do what the government thinks is best for you.If you think that this expenditure of taxpayer's money was authorized by Congress, think again ... it wasn't!
Williams goes on to note:
[...] To be clear, Congress did not pass legislation authorizing such activity; this is something dreamt up by bureaucracies to force their own preferences on citizens, whether by combating obesity or discouraging procrastination when it comes to saving for retirement. ...And that the genesis of this very disconcerting endeavor, called "behavioral economics" -- the study of how psychology affects people's decisions, most recently became a buzzword when former White House official Cass Sunstein co-authored the book Nudge while Sunstein was still a law professor at Harvard:
In 2009, Obama appointed him as administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, where Sunstein championed cost-benefit analysis of regulation, as well as "nudges." Sunstein left government in 2012 to return to academia, but the "nudge" school of thought has clearly lingered in the Oval Office: The newly created behavioral economics task force is the most prominent example yet.More here ... to learn more about the 'spooky' details.
As Allen West points out, Obama and his progressive socialist disciples seek to turn the United States into a "1984"-type totalitarian government-controlled nanny state where history is rewritten (see Common Core) as the Democrats continue to craft poll-tested messages and slogans to mentally enslave America. This may sound a bit alarmist and extremist, but why else would the Obama administration have established a task force dedicated to studying how to motivate (nudge) you to do what the government thinks is best for you ... and make their propaganda more effective to the point that, as has been clearly evident from this administration since its very beginning ... genuine truth is irrelevant and their lies - repeated often enough - become the mainstream media's talking points and eventually enough gullible and poorly informed voters continue to put liberal-progressives in office.
Charlie Daniels: "Tis the Season - And, I Will Say 'Merry Christmas' to Respect Its True Meaning"
Country and southern rock music singer Charlie Daniels pulls no punches in laying out exactly how he feels about the fact that Jesus Christ is the reason for the season and that for him, and millions of others, he says Merry Christmas, not Happy holidays, Seasons Greetings, or any other politically-correct neutral inanities that could be used to describe any other holiday of the year.
I got home off the road on a cold rainy Sunday morning to find our house all decorated for my favorite time of the year, the season we set aside to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, Son of Almighty God, Prince of Peace, King of Kings, Lord of Lords, The Way The Truth, The Life and Savior of mankind.
At my house and at untold millions of houses across America and the world, Jesus is the reason for the season, but in the offices of the American Civil Liberties Union, and the enclaves of humanist's atheists and other non-Christian faiths, it is just another day, which is their prerogative. The federal papers our forefathers drew up guarantee freedom of religion, which means you can worship a snail if you so desire or deny there is any deity at all if that is your choice.
These people who choose to follow another path can celebrate their holidays with impunity and without interference from me and the vast majority of the Christian community, and as lost as we feel they are, we do not interfere in their Earth days, Wiccan ceremonies, Summer Solstice celebrations and other public manifestations of their beliefs.
But "live and let live" does not seem to be acceptable to this bunch, they want every symbol of Christmas removed from every public place in the land, they don't want Christmas Pageants or the singing of Christmas Carols in public schools, Nativity Scenes banned from public sight and have intimidated merchants to the point that they forbid their employees to say Merry Christmas to their customers.
I, for one, will never give in to this movement; I refuse to say "Happy Holidays" or "Seasons Greetings" or any of the other neutral inanities that could be used to describe any other holiday of the year.
No Sir! It's all about Jesus and I will say "Merry Christmas" and respect the true meaning and traditions of Christmas if it drives the ACLU into apoplexy and infuriates every atheist on the face of the planet, anything else is lukewarm in my book. I will not bow down to political correctness nor be intimidated by the supposed intellectual elite who deem themselves wiser than the God who created them.
Let's just apply a little cowboy logic to the situation.
July 4th celebrates the day we won our independence--Independence Day
January 1st. The beginning of a new year--New Year's Day
A day set aside for giving thanks--Thanksgiving
A day set aside to honor workers--Labor Day
A day set aside to memorialize our soldiers killed in battle--Memorial Day
Hence a day set aside to commemorate the birth of Christ-Christmas
With all the symbolism and accoutrements afforded other holidays.
Halloween's earliest origins were from pagan religions, which the ACLU seems to have no trouble at all with. People could set jack o lanterns on the Capitol steps and they wouldn't mind, but one Nativity Scene on the courthouse grounds of the smallest city in America means lawsuits.
Does seeing a baby lying in a manger surrounded by barnyard animals threaten the religious freedom of America?
Does the singing of Christmas carols on public property constitute a danger to the rights of other religions to practice their faith?
Is the Phrase "Merry Christmas" really so offensive?
Actually, when you stop and think about it, it's all really silly. This nation has survived over two hundred years of Christmases and should the world last that long, when the wind and rain has washed the last vestiges of the names of those who so vehemently oppose It off their headstones, Christmas will still be celebrated.
What do you think?
Pray for our troops and the peace of Jerusalem
God Bless America.
Why I Carry: Reason #5 ... and more!
There are lots of very good reason why I carry a concealed firearm ... let's start with atomiktiger's reason #5:
As reported by cnsnews.com, July 17, 2013: CDC Study: Use of Firearms For Self-Defense is 'Important Crime Deterrent':
[...] "Self-defense can be an important crime deterrent," says a new report by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). The $10 million study was commissioned by President Barack Obama as part of 23 executive orders he signed in January.Coninue reading here ...
"Studies that directly assessed the effect of actual defensive uses of guns (i.e., incidents in which a gun was 'used' by the crime victim in the sense of attacking or threatening an offender) have found consistently lower injury rates among gun-using crime victims compared with victims who used other self-protective strategies," the CDC study, entitled "Priorities For Research to Reduce the Threat of Firearm-Related Violence," states.
The report, which notes that "violent crimes, including homicides specifically, have declined in the past five years," also pointed out that "some firearm violence results in death, but most does not." In fact, the CDC report said, most incidents involving the discharge of firearms do not result in a fatality.
[...] The CDC's findings - that guns are an effective and often used crime deterrent and that most firearm incidents are not fatal - could affect the future of gun violence research,
Then, continuing on by putting the 'reasons to carry' in perspective (author unknown):
I don't carry a gun because I'm angry. I carry a gun so that I don't have to spend the rest of my life hating myself for failing to be prepared.More here ...
I don't carry a gun because I want to shoot someone.
I carry a gun because I want to die at a ripe old age in my bed, and not on a sidewalk somewhere tomorrow afternoon.
I don't carry a gun because I'm a cowboy.
I carry a gun because, when I die and go to heaven, I want to be a cowboy.
I don't carry a gun to make me feel like a man.
I carry a gun because men know how to take care of themselves and the ones they love.
I don't carry a gun because I feel inadequate.
I carry a gun because unarmed and facing three armed thugs, I am inadequate.
I don't carry a gun because I love it.
I carry a gun because I love life and the people who make it meaningful to me.

Kentucky Physician Closes 20-year Practice Due To Obamacare
Kentucky doctor takes out newspaper ad space to blame Obamacare for the closure of his practice pic.twitter.com/lURklOCUNQ— Lachlan Markay (@lachlan) December 10, 2013
CNN reports that Obamacare is expected to increase patient demand for medical services. Combine that with a worsening shortage of doctors, and next year you may have to wait a little longer to get a doctor's appointment. And the crowded emergency room may become even more so.
And even in deep blue California, 70% of California doctors are expected to boycott Obamacare:
[...] "Enrollment doesn't mean access, because there aren't enough doctors to take the low rates of Medicaid," warns one health director. "There aren't enough primary care physicians, period."Related:
Report: 83 percent of doctors have considered quitting over Obamacare
File: You just can't make this c*** up!
This is not a joke! It feels like a joke. Our government is a tyrannical joke! I'm just going to post the whole damn thing because every sentence becomes more bizarre. You keep waiting for the punchline that never comes.
Oh hells bell's. I'll try to do some damage. KNOCK KNOCK! Who's there? TSA! TSA who? TSA the stupidest ass organization in America and we are coming for your guns! Merry Christmas!
"Rooster Monkburn" the cowboy sock monkey is without his pistol, thanks to a diligent TSA agent in St. Louis.
Phyllis May of Redmond, Wash. says she is "appalled and shocked and embarrassed all at the same time" about the incident that happened on Dec. 3.
May has a small business selling unique sock monkey dolls. She says she and her husband were on their way from St. Louis to Sea-Tac and she had a couple of monkeys and sewing supplies with her in a carry-on bag.
"His pistol was in there," she says of the sock monkey "Rooster Monkburn," a take-off on John Wayne character "Rooster Cogburn" from the film "True Grit."
May and her husband were going through the screening process when she noticed that one of her bags was missing.
"And the (TSA agent) held it up and said 'whose is this?'" she said. "I realized oh, my God this is my bag."
May said the TSA agent went through the bag, through the sewing supplies and found the two-inch long pistol.
"She said 'this is a gun,'" said May. "I said no, it's not a gun it's a prop for my monkey."
"She said 'If I held it up to your neck, you wouldn't know if it was real or not,' and I said 'really?'" said May.
The TSA agent told May she would have to confiscate the tiny gun and was supposed to call the police.
"I said well go ahead," said May. "And I said really? You're kidding me right, and she said no it looks like a gun."
"She took my monkey's gun," said May, who has retained her sense of humor.
"Rooster Monkburn has been disarmed so I'm sure everyone on the plane was safe," she said. "I understand she was doing her job but at some point doesn't common sense prevail?"
In the end, the agent did not call police and May did get her other sewing supplies back.
On Monday, the TSA issued a statement, saying "TSA officers are dedicated to keeping the nation's transportation security systems safe and secure for the traveling public. Under longstanding aircraft security policy, and out of an abundance of caution, realistic replicas of firearms are prohibited in carry-on bags."
Nelson Mandela Was A Racist, Because ...
Nelson Mandela was, under the standards and belief of U.S. Democrats and the mainstream media - a racist, because he wanted people to get Voter ID cards:
And today, led by Mandela, South Africa requires photo ID to vote. South Africa's Electoral Commission notes in its FAQ section that "you can vote in national and provincial elections as long as you have your valid, green, bar-coded ID and you are registered to vote." The ID includes a photograph. And overall, South Africa has far more stringent registration rules than Republicans, at least those in Wisconsin under Scott Walker, have ever proposed.
As Rick Esenberg points out at the Milwaukee Wisconsin Journal Sentinel, in order to get an identification card in South Africa, you must submit two identical color photographs and "[a] certified copy of your Birth certificate or reference book or a copy of the old Transkei, Bophutatswana, Venda or Ciskei homelands identity or travel documents." Having to obtain a birth certificate to get a photo identification card is, of course, regarded by the Left (e.g. Democrats) as tantamount to fascism. So, in other words, who knew that Mandela's South Africa was so (racist) and so Republican?
Top 5 Was Barack Hussein Obama Is No Nelson Mandela By Any Stretch Of Imagination
I meant to put this up several days ago but never got around to it. But it seems all the more pertinent today anyway, given that Obama is in South Africa a href="http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/world/2013/12/10/mandela-memorial-service/3948525/"target=_blank"">eulogizing Mandela as a 'great liberator' and comparing him to Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr. and Abraham Lincoln ... none of whom cozied up to murderous, communist, dictators.
Joel Pollak aptly noted on December 6 at Breitbart that any he comparison between Barack Obama and Nelson Mandela is so crude as to be laughable, but given the mainstream media's immediate linkage of the two, and President Barack Obama's insistence on talking about himself in his eulogy for Nelson Mandela, it must be said: Barack Obama is no Nelson Mandela ... beginning with the fact that their societies are very different -- the U.S. bears no resemblance to post-apartheid South Africa. For another, Mandela chose to govern differently from Obama in many key respects.:
1. Mandela was a uniter, Obama is a divider. Mandela was not above playing racial politics at times, but generally did all he could to bring people together, in both real and symbolic ways. He famously donned the Springbok rugby jersey, once a symbol hated by blacks, to show solidarity with whites. Mandela left South Africa more united than when he took office. Obama will leave the U.S. more divided than when he began.However, as Pollak goes on to point out, Mandela and Obama do share some failings common to most leftist leaders. Mandela passed labor laws that the unions loved but which held back job creation (just as has been the case with Obama). Mandela tried to offer "free" housing and a "right" to health care, and the result was poor housing and the spread of HIV/Aids. Like Obama, Mandela had a soft spot for the tyrants of the world, including Fidel Castro and Yasser Arafat, who had supported Mandela's banned movement in exile. Yet the contrast is striking. Mandela could have been an inspirational, radical, but instead chose to be a statesman, dropping revolution for reconciliation. Obama will endure as a historical figure but not as a great president. At almost every turn, Obama has chosen to pursue failed and outdated ideologies instead of seizing the opportunity to restore America's potential.
2. Mandela obeyed the constitution and the courts, Obama flouts both. Mandela not only signed a constitution that guaranteed individual rights and constraints on state power, but made an impressive show of subjecting his administration to the will of the courts. Obama, by contrast, is "becoming the very danger the Constitution was designed to avoid," ignoring court rulings and greatly expanding his executive powers.
3. Mandela was fiscally responsible, Obama is profligate. Mandela's administration adopted a policy of macroeconomic stability in 1995, putting sound budgets and economic growth before redistribution, resisting massive internal pressure to spend liberally on the poor. Obama, by contrast, has expanded the national debt massively, with little to show for it in either terms of economic growth or addressing economic inequality.
4. Mandela reached out to the opposition, Obama ignores them. Mandela fought pitched political battles, first with F. W. de Klerk's National Party and then with Tony Leon's centrist Democratic Party (now the Democratic Alliance under Helen Zille). Yet he reached out constantly to his opponents and met frequently with them. Obama, however, barely bothers to consult his opponents and makes a point of marginalizing them.
5. Mandela was humble, Obama is arrogant. South Africans share stories of seeing Mandela walking down the highway on his daily exercise, or being greeted warmly by him as if by an old friend. He was a larger-than-life figure who was self-effacing, if dignified, in his bearing. Obama, however, built himself a fake Greek temple and refers to himself constantly, elevating himself crudely above the nation he was elected to lead.
So when you get through the BS being spun by the mainstream media, the ONLY real comparison between Barack Obama and Nelson Mandela is that both men are black ... all other attempts to compare them is more than a stretch ... it's downright, knee-slapping, laughable.
In the 'one more thing' department, Only in the convoluted, way far left minds of the mainstream media and Barack Obama could Mandela be compared to Gandhi, Martin Luther King and Abraham Lincoln. Nelson Mandela was leaps and bounds above Barack Obama, a failed president, in essentially every positive attribute a political leader could have ... but to be perfectly clear ... Barack Obama is NO Nelson Mandela, and Nelson Mandela is NO Gandhi, Martin Luther King, or Abrqaham Lincoln.
Take first the issue of laws...
How many laws regulate everything we do? The Library of Congress addresses the question of Federal law here. Trust me - there are a lot!
How many laws, rules, regulations are there in Obamacare? Well, as above, The Fact Checker tries to answer that question in How many pages of regulations for 'Obamacare'?. Notice I said "tries."
This young woman named Josie considers herself an "outlaw." "Being an outlaw does not necessarily mean being the bad guy. Whenever rights are being violated in the name of law and authority, then it is the duty of every decent, moral person to oppose that. First with their words, then with actions if necessary."

Obama: Declining Trust In Government Is Fault Of ... Ronald Reagan?
No, I didn't make this up ... Obama made the bizarre and embarrassingly inaccurate statement last week during an interview with MSNBC's Chris Matthews, as pointed out by Michael Miller of IJ Review online yesterday.
Stating that distrust in the government started in the 1980's under the late President Ronald Reagan, Obama said in part,Much more here ..."We've had a politics, frankly, you know, the entire Republican Party brand since Ronald Reagan has been 'government's the problem." And if you, day after day, week after week, election after election, are running on that platform and that permeates our culture and itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s picked up by, you know, ordinary citizens who grow skeptical, then it's not surprising that over time, trust in government declines."
President Obama, "Constitutional scholar," clearly forgets that America's founding fathers developed a system of "checks and balances," or "separation of powers," not for the purposes of irritating lawmakers, but rather to ensure that no branch of the federal government, including the executive branch, would become too powerful. The idea of "self-governance" was always that the people held the power, and not the other way around.
Put simply, America's political system evolved around a fundamental distrust in the nature of the government, which was the whole point of the separation of powers. This fact is apparent to anyone who bothers to read the actual words of the founders.
President Obama and his allies, including too many Republicans, have come up with a new word for checks and balances, and that word is "obstructionism," as reported at Liberty Unyielding.
Would a brave journalist ever dare to ask President Obama what the point was of "checks and balances?"
Related video: Ronald Reagan lays out the truth about the Constitution and government: 'Man is not free unless government is limited' ... and it's based on what our Founding Fathers believed in:
'A lack of interest that borders on malfeasance'
Given his history of incompetence and untruthfulness beginning way back on his second day in office, you don't need his name in the title here to know exactly who the title is referring to:
David Gergen: "There's 'nobody in charge' at the White House":
CNN political analyst David Gergen gave a scathing review of White House operations Sunday, saying recent reports about the president's lack of interest in the Obamacare rollout borders on malfeasance.
The conclusion drawn about Obama's signature health care plan stems from a Government Accountability Institute report released last week that said the president met privately with Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius on only one occasion prior to implementation of the program.
"I don't think this is simply sloppiness on the part of the White House," Gergen said. "What seems to me is there's a case of near malfeasance here."
U.S Government Loses $10.5 Billion In Sale Of General Motors Stock Remaining From Obama's GM Bailout
It's Obama-math made simple ... cash out always exceeds cash in.
DETROIT (AP) -- US government sells rest of its General Motors stock; loses $10.5 billion on bailout.
As readers will recall, saving General Motors from bankruptcy was among Barack Obama's most frequently cited achievements when he ran for re-election last year. Democrats everywhere touted the company's revival as proof of the 2009 bailout's wisdom. That was then. Now, not only did Obama's bailout cost the American taxpayers $10.5 billion, he earlier quietly released GM from a bailout requirement that it increase its production in the U.S.- resulting in GM spending billions of dollars building up its production capacity in --- China.
Simply put, Obama threw away $10.5 billion for GM to send billions of dollars to China that provides jobs for the Chinese!
Duck Dynasty Star Phil Robertson: ''They Told Us To Stop Praying To Jesus, Don't Offend Muslims"" (Video)
In an interview with sports spectrum magazine that was published on YouTube last month Willie & Phil Robertson, stars of Duck Dynasty, talk about fake bleeps, praying in Jesus' name, and getting flack from Christians.
When the editors of Duck Dynasty asked the stars to stop saying "In Jesus Name" during prayers because it might offend Muslims, Phil Robertson had to stand his ground:
So when we pray we say "In Jesus name, Amen." ... It's a very good idea, I think. So, they would have me say "Thank you Lord for the food. Thank you for the blessings. Amen." So, I said, "Why would you cut out 'in Jesus name?'" And they said, "Well, these editors they think they don't want to offend some Muslims or something."
I haveve a suggestion to any Muslims who may be offended ... change the damn channel!
