NoBama...the dramatic evidence

TG, our eagle-eyed Alaska contributor sends this:
During the 3-1/2 years of World War II, that started with the
Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor in December 1941
and ended with the Surrender of Germany and Japan in 1945,
"We the People of the USA" produced the following:
22 aircraft carriers,

  • 8 battleships,

48 cruisers,
349 destroyers,
420 destroyer escorts,
203 submarines,
34 million tons of merchant ships,
100,000 fighter aircraft,
98,000 bombers,
24,000 transport aircraft,
58,000 training aircraft,
93,000 tanks,
257,000 artillery pieces,
105,000 mortars,
3,000,000 machine guns, 
and 2,500,000 military trucks.

We put 16.1 million men in uniform in the various armed services,
invaded Africa,
invaded Sicily and Italy,
won the battle for the Atlantic,
planned and executed D-Day,
marched across the Pacific and Europe,
developed the atomic bomb,
and ultimately, with our allies,  
conquered Japan and Germany.

It's worth noting,
that during the almost exact amount of time,
the Obama Administration couldn't even build a
medical insurance web site that worked
 .

The media's sinister Bin Laden blind eye

SEYMOUR HERSH HAS DONE THE PUBLIC a great service by breathing life into questions surrounding the official narrative of the raid that killed Osama bin Laden. Yet instead of trying to build off the details of his story, or to disprove his assertions with additional reporting, journalists have largely attempted to tear down the messenger.  

Barrels of ink have been spilled ripping apart Hersh’s character, while barely any follow-up reporting has been done to corroborate or refute his claims—even though there’s no doubt that the Obama administration has repeatedly misinformed and misled the public about the incident. Even less attention has been paid to the little follow-up reporting that we did get, which revealed that the CIA likely lied about its role in finding bin Laden, which it used to justify torture to the public.

Smile of the Day [3]

Flying on Air Force One, Obama looked at Oprah, chuckled and said, "You know, I could throw a $1,000 bill out of a window right now and make somebody very happy."
Oprah shrugged and replied, "I could throw ten $100 bills out of a window and make ten people very happy.. "
Michelle added, "That being the case, I could throw one hundred $10 bills out of a window and make a hundred people very happy.. "
Hearing this, the captain rolled his eyes and said to his first officer: "Such big-shots back there. I could throw all of them out of a window and make 56 million people very happy." [ECS]

What's the difference between Obama and God?
God doesn't think he's Obama.

Smile of the Day [2]

Bill Clinton is jogging around DC. A ho sees him and yells out, "Fifty dollars!" He's tempted, but calls back, "Five!" She turns away while Bill continues his jog.
A few days later, Bill is jogging in the same area and sees the same ho. "Fifty!" she yells. "Five!" he answers her. No sale.
The next week, Hillary decides to go jogging with Bill. They're running through the same area, and the ho is there again. She sees Bill and Hillary together and yells: "See what you get for five dollars?" [ECS]

Ted Cruz sez...

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) Wednesday filed an amendment to the Trade Act of 2015 to lock in assurances that this legislation cannot be used to change federal immigration law.
"The Obama Administration has repeatedly assured Members of Congress that there is nothing in the Trade Act of 2015 that would allow the President to unilaterally make changes to federal immigration laws. I agree, and we should put it in writing and make it binding law," said Cruz. "I am a strong supporter of free trade, but I cannot support legislation that would allow the President to once again circumvent Congress to enact his own immigration laws. Since the Obama Administration has emphatically argued that TPA will not affect immigration, it should support this amendment, which makes that promise explicit." [ECS]

Notable and Quotable

Thomas Sowell at his best, distilling fundamental truths that shock politically correct sensibilities:
You cannot take any people, of any color, and exempt them from the requirements of civilization — including work, behavioral standards, personal responsibility, and all the other basic things that the clever intelligentsia disdain — without ruinous consequences to them and to society at large. Non-judgmental subsidies of counterproductive lifestyles are treating people as if they were livestock, to be fed and tended by others in a welfare state — and yet expecting them to develop as human beings have developed when facing the challenges of life themselves.
Read the whole thing. [BJS]

Ted Cruz sez...

If President Obama provides sanctions relief to Iran as part of his nuclear deal, "the blood of the men and women and children who will be murdered by those terrorists will be directly on the hands of this administration," Ted Cruz warned the Senate Wednesday night.  After being blocked from calling a vote on an amendment to the Iran bill to raise the threshold for congressional  approval of the nuclear deal, Cruz accused senators of "abrogating our authority and responsibility. "This deal makes war a certainty,"  he predicted. [ECS]

ER visits soar under ObamaCare

Surprise, surprise...Backers of ObamaCare have said it would reduce the number of visits to emergency rooms, The Wall Street Journal notes, but in fact, a poll of ER doctors finds that number has been climbing. "Visits  are  going up despite the (Affordable Care Act), and in a lot of cases because of it," a spokesman for the American College of Emergency Physicians tells the Journal. The findings come from a March poll of 2,098 doctors, three-quarters of whom said they'd seen ER visits increase since January 2014. Last year, less than half of doctors polled noted an increase.
