It is not suprising that Obama’s budget was defeated 411 to zero. Not one Democrat voted for it. This short discussion on the US House Floor shows again why Obama and his ideas are disastrous for America.

Remember when the leering, maniacal Nancy Pelosi told us that we had to pass Obamacare to find out what is in it? She and the rest of her Democrat wrecking crew said things like this, knowing that the “Charlie McCarthy” dummies in the media would repeat anything they said. Because almost no one read the bill except conservative activists and some elected Republicans, Obamacare was shoved down our throats two years ago. Since then, Democrats have been telling groups of voters whatever they wanted to hear to make them support it, but nothing has really worked. If anything, Obamacare has less support today than the day it was passed. Reading the bill makes people want to fight against it.
Enter Nancy Pelosi, aka the Wicked Witch of the West, the Congresswoman from the very sick city of San Francisco. Pelosi is trying a new line of lies to sell Obamacare. She’s insisting that our Founding Fathers had Obamacare in mind as a means to real freedom!
Smiling through severely stretched and botox assisted skin, Pelosi is gleefully insisting that Obamacare provides us the freedom to become a “photographer,” “writer,” “musician”–or “whatever,” as envisioned by Thomas Jefferson and our other Founding Fathers. She failed to mention that Obamacare will also give us the freedom to become a dishwasher or a beggar – but why spoil the moment?
She didn’t talk about other “freedoms” Obamacare will provide us with; being a hobo comes to mind. Just image the fun and adventure of reliving those golden days of the 1930s when a man could sneak into a boxcar and enjoy the winds of freedom blowing through the holes in the knees of his pants! Because of the “freedom” Obamacare will deliver, we’ll be able to leave our bills and our cares behind and lose ourselves in Obamaville without fear of losing our “free” contraceptive supplies.
Because of the wonderful benefits of Obamacare, pre-existing conditions will mean nothing. Since everything will be free, hospitals will be glad to treat us and get us back on the next freight train without missing a beat.
Thanks to Thomas Jefferson Obama, we can have it all! We’ll have free contraceptives and free health care right up until we are 55! Who could ask for more?

(WND) Arizona, which was at the forefront of last year’s effort among state legislatures to require documentation of candidates’ eligibility for the office they seek, is returning to the controversy, with a proposal by Rep. Carl Seel, R-Phoenix, that would require candidates to sign an affidavit affirming they meet the requirements.
The plan was promoted in a news conference yesterday attended by Sheriff Joe Arpaio, whose Cold Case Posse earlier this month detailed how the evidence regarding Barack Obama’s eligibility documentation suggestions both forgery and fraud – and a reason to continue the investigation.
Seel’s proposal calls for a signed affidavit from the candidate along with authorization for any citizen with legitimate concerns about a candidate’s eligibility to be allowed to challenge it.
That’s similar to a Georgia provision that requires “every candidate for federal” office who is certified by the state executive committee of a political party or who files a notice of candidacy “shall meet the constitutional and statutory qualifications for holding the office being sought.”

In Tuesday’s oral arguments before the Supreme Court, Solicitor General and chief ObamaCare advocate Donald Verrilli was presented with a substantial portion of his own posterior by Justice Antonin Scalia.
The summary execution began when Verrilli made the extraordinary mistake of schooling the Court on the proper meaning of its own decisions.
“No it didn’t,” said Scalia to the stunned Solicitor General in reference to his errant references to the significance of previous cases.
And what followed was a merciless barrage of facts exposing the overreach of the individual mandate, ObamaCare’s method of creating “fairness in healthcare” by making those who do not want to purchase insurance buy it anyway or suffer a penalty.
When US District Judge Roger Vinson found ObamaCare unconstitutional in 2011 he wrote simply: “If Congress can penalize a passive individual for failing to engage in commerce…it would be ‘difficult to perceive any limitation on federal power,’ and we would have a Constitution in name only.”
And Scalia not only repeated Vinson’s skepticism of Congress’ immediate use of the Commerce Clause power; he drove directly to the heart of Verrilli’s contention that the federal government has the absolute authority to impose the individual mandate because it is “necessary and proper” to the success of ObamaCare itself.
“In addition to being necessary, it has to be proper,” said Scalia of the federal government’s unprecedented decision to force unwilling participants into the insurance market and fine those who refuse.
And the judge continued, saying although ObamaCare’s individual mandate might be “necessary” to the success of the Regime’s healthcare scheme as a whole, “…it’s not proper because it violates an equally evident principle in the Constitution, which is that the Federal Government is not supposed to be a government that has all powers; that it’s supposed to be a government of limited powers.”
And Scalia was not finished with his Constitutional schooling of Barack Obama’s handpicked, ObamaCare mouthpiece. “[The] Federal Government is a government of enumerated powers and the vast majority…remain in the States and do not belong to the Federal Government,” said the justice.
In response, all Verrilli could do was raise the same “it’s Constitutional under the commerce clause powers of Congress” argument with which he began the days’ proceedings.
“The Tenth Amendment says the powers not given to the Federal Government are reserved, not just to the States, but to the States and the people,” said Scalia when Varrilli appeared to claim that the powers of the Federal Government should take precedence over the rights of the American people.
Leftist media pundits blame Verrilli’s questionable performance Tuesday on a lack of being properly prepared. They don’t seem to understand that arguing in favor of a thoroughly unconstitutional law is not an easy thing to do, especially when the audience can neither be handpicked, nor the questions pre-approved.
Unless Scalia undergoes a major change of heart, he–along with Alito and Thomas—will make the 3rdJustice very likely to find ObamaCare unconstitutional.

President Obama must really be feeling the heat of high gas prices. He is on the defense.
For the past three years, America’s oil industry has endured public denigration, access denials, and permitting delays—all while the President touts the virtues of energy sources not equipped to power America: wind, solar, and, most recently, algae. As gas prices have been spiking up, President Obama has been speaking out against the evil oil companies and accusing them of obscene profits. Apparently, Americans haven’t been buying into the rhetoric. Polls show increasing numbers of people believe the President’s policies have contributed to the high prices.
Late last week, the American public was offered more evidence that President Obama’s energy policy is really more electoral posturing. Friday afternoon, March 16, an energy tour was announced that would “highlight his Administration’s all of the above energy strategy, including his focus on continuing to expand responsible oil and gas development…” Visiting only swing states, his fossil fuel infatuation tour included a trip to the oil fields of Southeastern New Mexico—where the pending decision regarding listing the sand dune lizard as an endangered species could kill the entire economy in that corner of the state.
With little notice, locals scrambled to put together a rally to greet the President when he touched down. Oil companies, ranchers, local businesses, and politicians sent out alerts—plans were underway. The original press release said: “The President will then travel to oil and gas production fields located on federal lands outside of Carlsbad, New Mexico, an area home to more than seventy active drilling rigs. While in Carlsbad, …”
Something didn’t sound right. The Carlsbad, NM airport cannot accommodate Air Force One. Assumptions were made. He must be flying into Roswell and then being helicoptered to Carlsbad, and driven to a well site. “We’ll have folks line the streets along the exit of the Carlsbad airport with signs…”
On Tuesday, a new press release came out. Nix Carlsbad. The President is landing in Roswell and then “will travel to oil and gas production fields located on federal lands outside of Maljamar, New Mexico.” Maljamar (population 38) is a wide sport in the road surrounded by tumbleweeds and pump jacks. Regroup.
An email alert offered “an important update on the President’s visit on Wednesday. The Secret Service requested that there be NO RALLY at the airport on Wednesday. They were promptly told that this was going to happen whether they wanted us there or not. The Secret Service is CLOSING Earl Cummings Parkway during his visit.”
The update continued, “We will most probably not see the President and our goal is to have enough people show up to draw media attention to what our President is doing to our home area, Lizard, Prairie Chicken etc. He is using this visit to show ‘support’ for our energy industry, while selling our livelihoods down the drain behind our backs. PLEASE MAKE A SIGN TO BRING WITH YOU!!!!!!!!!”
President Obama’s total visit time was scheduled to be 2 hours and 15 minutes—with no public interaction. Off in the distance, he might have seen the crowd gathered at the rally—even if only in the news reports.
He was greeted at the Roswell International Air Center by Governor Susana Martinez and Roswell’s Mayor Del Jurney. The mayor of nearby Artesia declined to meet the President. Mayor Jurney says that he spoke to the President about the sand dune lizard: “When you have an opportunity to have boots on ground and to meet the people that it affects, I think the decision making process changes a bit and I am hoping that he’ll continue to consider the ill effects of things like the sand dune lizard and other EPA issues that harm oil and gas production.”
From the Roswell International Air Center, President Obama was flown to Maljamar for a nine-minute speech with a backdrop of pump jacks. The speech contained the usual talk of increased permitting and production. Even in front of the small, select audience, he received only sparse applause. Using his professorial tone, he lectured people who earn their living from oil production on how oil is priced in the global market.
In the last few minutes, President Obama launched into the now-well-known tirade about subsidies to oil and gas companies. I am sure the section made sense to the speech writers in the White House, but Obama clearly faltered while delivering the lines in front of his policy’s victims: “The oil companies who are drilling here in New Mexico, and all over the country, are making record profits. … I want American oil companies to do well. I have said, though, it doesn’t make sense to be providing a $4 billion subsidy when oil and gas are doing plenty well on their own. Oil companies are making record profits and that’s good, but we don’t need to subsidize them. $4 billion is a lot of money and we’ve been subsidizing them for 100 years. So my attitude is let’s make sure we use that money in smarter ways to develop a whole range of new energy sources since the oil industry is mature and has already taken off. Instead of investing tax dollars in profitable companies, let’s invest in our future. Let’s tell Congress to get their act together. Let’s allocate these subsidies in a smart kind of way. If we’re going to end our dependence on foreign oil and bring gas prices down once and for all, we’ve got to develop new technologies.”
Apparently, he came to my state to scold the successful while promising support for the start-ups.
If President Obama’s visit was about more than a photo op, he’d stop and look into the eyes of the men and women of New Mexico’s Permian Basin—which accounts for about 20% of the domestic oil production in the contiguous states. He would have seen good, hard-working people. If he took the time, he would have seen fear; fear not just for personal livelihoods, but also for the future of their communities. The people of Southeastern New Mexico are brave, not usually afraid. But they have watched as policy after policy put into place by the Administration directly impacts the economic stability of Southeastern New Mexico.
Greg Nibert, Chaves County Commissioner, District 5, in Roswell, New Mexico said, “I hope the President boards Air Force One committed to putting the citizens of Chaves County ahead of reptiles, birds, and whatever critters they might think of next. I further hope he will focus on policies that will get government out of the way so our farmers, ranchers, oil and gas companies, and local businesses can produce the economic prosperity needed by our community, state, and nation.”
Will President Obama return to Washington committed to unwinding the policies he previously promoted? Or, was his stop merely a photo op to create the image that he is a friend of fossil fuels and the American West? Sadly, history tells us his fossil fuel infatuation is fake. The people of New Mexico have been used.

Turns out he’s not Kenyan after all. He’s KGB. All this time, people were worried that PresidentObama was born in Africa and that his radical agenda had been crafted by the Rev. Jeremiah Wright and Saul Alinsky on the streets of Chicago’s South Side.
Now we know his real radical hidden agenda is in service of the Kremlin.
Mr. Obama reached the darkest low of his presidency this week in South Korea when he was caught on an unseen mic plotting with the leader of one of our oldest adversaries to thwart the will of American voters and advance the interests of enemies who want to see the world’s last remaining beacon of freedom finally destroyed.
