There are so many things wrong with this statement, I don’t know where to begin.
The mere mention of the sternly worded letter is enough to make our enemies cower in fear.

“It’s Okay To Hate Republicans,” writes University of Michigan professor Susan Douglas in an article published Monday, saying that innocent, inquisitive Democrats have fallen victim to the GOP’s mean-spirited rhetoric for the past 30 years.
“I hate Republicans,” Douglass’ article begins. “I can’t stand the thought of spending the next two years watching Mitch McConnell, John Boehner, Ted Cruz, Darrell Issa or any of the legions of other blowhards denying climate change, thwarting immigration reform or championing fetal ‘personhood.'”
She goes on to write that she used to have respect for Republicans back in the 1970’s when they were “fiscally conservative but progressive about women’s rights, racial justice and environmental preservation.” Douglas makes no mention that Democrats spent the first half of the 20th century defending and enforcing Jim Crow laws.
Just what everyone expects.
NBC, CBS and ABC on Tuesday night and Wednesday morning worried if yet another addition to the Bush “dynasty” will be good for the country. Yet, these same networks were excited earlier this year about the continuation of the Clinton brand. If, as many expect, Hillary Clinton announces a presidential run early next year, will journalists worry about the impact of a Democratic dynasty?
On Good Morning America, Jon Karl featured Donald Trump declaring, “The last thing we need right now is another Bush.” Karl underlined, “And you know, a lot of folks agree with that. Just think about it…This would be the third president named Bush in 25 years.”
It wasn’t until the very end of the segment that co-host George Stephanopoulos made the obvious point: “And the possibility of a Bush/Clinton race already having people’s starting positions saying shouldn’t happen, we shouldn’t have these kinds of dynasties.”
The future of America is doomed. Just watch this video as proof.
By now, most of us know how Obamacare Architect Jonathan Gruber feels about the American voter. He thinks that a lot of them are pretty stupid. At least, the ones who bought into the sales pitch that he created in order to convince the American people Obamacare was a terrific idea.
But, was he right? Are American voters really as dim-witted as Gruber thinks they are?
In order to test that theory, I traveled to a college campus to see if I could get students to sign a petition that would ask President Obama to withdraw his current nominee for the position of Secretary of Defense and replace him with……..Jonathan Gruber!
Sony has waived the white flag.
With theater chains defecting en masse, Sony Pictures Entertainment has pulled the planned Christmas release of “The Interview.”
In announcing the decision to cancel the holiday debut, Sony hit back at the hackers who threatened movie theaters and moviegoers and who have terrorized the studio and its employees for weeks.
“Those who attacked us stole our intellectual property, private emails, and sensitive and proprietary material, and sought to destroy our spirit and our morale – all apparently to thwart the release of a movie they did not like,” the statement reads.
“We are deeply saddened at this brazen effort to suppress the distribution of a movie, and in the process do damage to our company, our employees, and the American public,” it continues. “We stand by our filmmakers and their right to free expression and are extremely disappointed by this outcome.”
Earlier today we posted the story of Mooch telling the horrific racist tale of Barack being mistaken for a waiter. A member of the Obama admin did the same to a 4-star general.
Via Daily Caller:
President Barack Obama isn’t the only powerful man in Washington who was once confused for a waiter when wearing his evening best. So was a top general in the U.S. Army — by Valerie Jarrett!
As The Daily Caller first reported back in 2011, Obama’s top adviser mistook a four-star general for a waiter during a fancy dinner hosted by the Alfalfa Club. According to a Daily Caller source, as the general walked by Jarrett’s table, she signaled to him that she wanted more libation.
“I’d like another glass of wine,” she reportedly said.
Like a gentleman, the career military man didn’t make a fuss of the matter, according to the source.
Republicans now have their largest House majority in over 80 years.
(Reuters) – U.S. Representative Ron Barber, an Arizona Democrat and former aide to Gabrielle Giffords, has officially lost his re-election bid to the Republican challenger in November’s congressional elections, a judge certified on Wednesday.
A superior court judge declared Martha McSally, a retired Air Force colonel and a pioneer of women’s combat aviation in the 1990s, the winner after a state-mandated recount showed she won by 167 votes in the Nov. 4 election.
“There’s no getting around that this was an incredibly close and hard-fought race. After what’s been a long campaign season, it’s time to come together and heal our community,” McSally said in a statement.
There’s gonna be a whole lot of pissed off people come February 15.

People without insurance are running out of time to avoid the hefty ObamaCare penalties that the IRS will be handing down in 2016.
Consumers face a Feb. 15, 2015, deadline to buy insurance, after which those without coverage could be hit with fines of $325 per adult or 2 percent of family income, whichever is higher.
Uninsured people looking to escape the penalties are turning to the exchanges before they close, while insurance companies and tax preparers are seizing on the looming tax hit as a business opportunity.
One recent mass mailer from CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield obtained by The Hill warned potential customers in the Washington, D.C., region that going without health insurance coverage would come with a steep cost.
“When you don’t have health insurance … you put your financial security at risk,” the mailer states. “That’s because under the new Affordable Care Act legislation, millions of Americans will have to pay an increased penalty tax of at least 2 percent of their income in 2015 if they go uninsured.”
The “good news,” the letter said, is that CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield has “solutions” to help people avoid the penalty, including coverage that is “compatible with financial assistance or free money from the government that will help qualifying individuals pay for insurance.”

“Remember. Honor. Teach.”
That’s the message Wreaths Across America wanted to impart through this weekend’s wreath laying event at Arlington National Cemetery. If the thousands of volunteers who gave up their Saturday morning were any indication, the organization was successful.
Caroline Nicholson participated to honor her father and those he served with. “My dad’s in the Army, he’s overseas right now so he couldn’t be here,” she said choking back tears. “We’re actually going to go and see where members of his brigade was buried.”
“They gave their lives for our country and there’s no better way to give back than put a wreath on their grave and honor their memory.”
Amy Johnson, Caroline’s friend, came to support her. “I’m so grateful for their service,” she said. “This is a nice way that I can give back.”
Eugene Lau told the Free Beacon he was there to honor a veteran who had helped his family when they first arrived in America. “I had a family friend who passed away a few years ago,” he said. “He was an Air Force pilot in World War II. He helped my family out so much when my parents immigrated here.”
Amherst College is so far to the left it could easily be confused for a communist re-education camp.
Via Campus Reform:
“We didn’t choose the moose, the moose chose us,” say students at a top liberal arts school in Massachusetts.
Amherst College students have rehashed a movement to change the college’s official mascot to the Moose in order to honor the time the animal wandered onto campus last spring.
Students at Amherst have been anxious to change the name of the current mascot—the Lord Jeffs, named for founder of Amherst, Mass., Lord Jeffrey Amherst—for several years. Amherst was a prominent general during Pontiac’s Rebellion, and students say he is guilty of genocide for allegedly ordering a subordinate to practice biological warfare with smallpox-infested blankets. Students also point out that he had nothing to do with the school’s actual founding.
Rangel the ambulance chaser is already in Havana.
Via Daily Caller:
Democratic New York Congressman Charlie Rangel said on MSNBC’s “Ronan Farrow Daily” that in the aftermath of the normalization of relations with Cuba, he has “never been more proud of being an American.”
Rangel, who was in Havana for some reason, said the Cuban people were ecstatic. ”This is a tremendous, historic event, the people in Havana are dancing in the street with glee, there’s always been a love between the Cuban people and the American people, notwithstanding the problems our governments have had.”
Or as Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson call it, mission accomplished.
A majority of Americans now say that race relations in the United States are bad, according to the latest NBC News/ Wall Street Journal poll, which showed the most pessimistic assessment of racial issues in almost two decades.
In the wake of protests over the deaths of unarmed black men at the hands of police, just four in ten Americans told pollsters that they believe race relations in the United States are “good,” while 57 percent disagreed. And nearly a quarter – 23 percent – classified the current state of the country’s racial issues as “very bad.”
The data showed a dramatic slide from just 18 months ago, when a July 2013 poll indicated that a majority – 52 percent – offered an optimistic view of race relations. And throughout President Barack Obama’s first term in the White House, more than seven in ten Americans said race relations were good, with a record 77 percent giving a positive assessment shortly after Obama’s election as the first black president.

“I would really like to see the normal grading system suspended for this semester and replaced with a no-fail mercy period. Administrators should require professors to exercise complete flexibility in what students are saying they can produce academically.
Require that every professor listen to what their students are saying and if that means rather than writing a paper students instead meet with their professor to simply discuss in groups their paper topics or if tests are taken collectively with professors there are ways to make sure we are learning what we are supposed to be learning in ways that are not so taxing in times like this. Students in this moment should have complete access to alternative modes of learning while we process what’s happening.
Basically, no student especially black students and students of color should be failing a class this semester. A ‘C’ should be the lowest grade students can receive this semester. Professors should be required to work with students, who would otherwise be at risk of failing, to create alternate means of accessing knowledge.”
