The answer is simple

With Republicans slashing the budget for Medicaid, education, nutrition and health care, but adding 38 billion to Pentagon spending, the answer is simple: Poor and sick people need to become defense contractors.

Ted Cruz loses the Internet

Ted Cruz’s campaign people apparently aren’t that savvy about the Internet. Ted’s people failed to grab tedcruz.com, and that currently goes to a website that simply says, “Support President Obama, immigration reform now.” But even better, if you go to tedcruzforamerica.com, you go to the one website in the world Cruz does NOT want you to visit — healthcare.gov.

Ted Cruz 2016

Ted Cruz CPAC

The best thing about Obama Derangement Syndrome is that it convinces nutcases like Ted Cruz to run for president, therefore further damaging the Republican brand.

CNN has confirmed from two aides to Cruz that the fact-challenged first-term senator from Texas (remember when only having one term in the Senate made you “unfit to run”?) will announce Monday that he’s running. He will make his official declaration in Lynchburg, Virginia, at Liberty University, the largest Christian university in the world.

Black student assaulted by cops for having a fake ID

If you’re white and try to get into a bar with a fake ID, the security guard won’t let you in. You then leave, having learned your lesson about trying to get in with a fake ID.

If you’re black and try to leave, this happens.

It’s also been reported that cops threatened to arrest people who asked that the victim be taken off the ground. You know, because you’re not allowed to question our militarized police overlords.

Watch video of the incident here:

The fundamental dishonesty of conservativism

James O'Keefe

Conservatives, especially those in right wing media, often used fundamentally dishonest tactics driven by their irrational hatred of people who disagree with them. A prime example is James O’Keefe. Any rational, real news media outlet would have stopped using him long ago, but not right wing media, which doesn’t mind his dishonesty at all so long as he spews hate for liberals, Obama and anyone who stands in the way of their agenda.

A controversial conservative activist is being accused of trying to incite anti-police protesters by saying, “I wish I could kill some of these cops,” to provoke them into making outrageous statements.

A  former top staffer with Project Veritas, Richard Valdes, said the incident occurred in January, when an undercover operative assigned to infiltrate the protest groups was given a script that included the startling comment.

Valdes said he was fired by the group’s founder, James O’Keefe, for not following through on the bizarre assignment.

Valdes said Veritas assigned a Muslim undercover agent pretending to be anti-cop to attend protest meetings and utter the following statement: “Sometimes, I wish I could just kill some of these cops. Don’t you just wish we could have one of the cops right here in the middle of our group?”

But the undercover agent refused, according to Valdes.

“I will not say words that will jeopardize my entity, especially when they involve an illegal act of ‘murdering police,’ ” the agent wrote in a Jan. 9 e-mail to Valdes and cc’d to O’Keefe.

Valdes claims O’Keefe, known for hidden-camera tactics against liberal groups, fired him “because he was unhappy with me for being unwilling to strong-arm the guy to do his dirty work.”

Valdes and his lawyer, Arthur Schwartz, are threatening to sue for wrongful termination.

The ‘lame duck’ is running the show

Obama-and-flag.jpg

President Obama, allegedly a “lame duck” with a Republican Congress set against him, is beating the GOP again and again in the twilight of his presidency.

Washington (CNN) At the time in his tenure when most presidents fret over their waning clout, Barack Obama is redefining the concept of the lame duck.

His administration has been energized by his aggressive use of executive power. Some of the most hard-won achievements of his early years in office are beginning to pay off. And his political luck seems to be turning. With a term and a half behind him, Obama’s prospects are brighter than they have been for years.

“We are on offense,” said a White House official, who was not authorized to speak publicly, noting with satisfaction that predictions that the new Republican majority would grab the initiative and quickly make the White House a peripheral player did not pan out.
