Hobby Lobby 1 Obama The Abortionist 0

Hobby Lobby 1 Obama The Abortionist 0

Obama’s probably a little bummed that the Supreme Court overruled his Hobby Lobby contraception mandate. Sociopaths have a tendency to get a little angry when things don’t go their way. They do things, unspeakable things. So far, no leaked word yet from the White House of the unspeakable acts committed there within. His minions are, if anything, loyal. Plus, the people’s house, the White House, has sub-basements, sure to stifle any screams of terror that might emanate from down below. I’ll bet it’s hot down there, very hot. Because Obama’s hot and madder than hell. And he’s angry to boot.

Though the recent Supreme Court’s decision was a big win for Hobby Lobby, there are still thousands upon thousands of people who may be forced by Obamacare to participate in the murder of their own grandchildren. Under the Affordable Care Act, parents can keep their kids on their policy until those children reach the age of 26. And if that child of theirs decides to have an abortion that destroys the life growing in the womb, so be it. Just send the bill to the would-be grandma and grandpa.

Would-be Grandmas and Grandpas do have an out though. They can stop claiming the abortion-minded child as a dependent, thereby forcing the child to seek their own health insurance. That’s probably easier to do once that child has reached 18, but I’m sure that the government would be happy to provide that person with affordable healthcare and even subsidize that healthcare when necessary.

Remember the State of the Union in 2009 when Obama said that no federal dollars will be used to fund abortions? I do. I remember. Anyone receiving an Obamacare subsidy though is receiving federal dollars, federal tax money. Money that is taken by force from the U.S. federal government to fund the murderous killing of helpless innocent babies in the womb.

Bob Unruh wrote about the Supreme Court Hobby Lobby vs. Obamacare decision over at WND:

The U.S. Supreme Court in a 5-4 decision Monday ruled that a “closely held” for-profit business can opt out of Obamacare’s controversial contraception requirement based on religious objections.

Hobby Lobby’s argument was based on the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, or RFRA, which protects the individual beliefs of citizens.

The majority opinion by Justice Samuel Alito dismissed the Department of Health and Human Services argument that the companies cannot sue because they are for-profit corporations and that the owners cannot sue because the regulations apply only to the companies. Alito said that “would leave merchants with a difficult choice: give up the right to seek judicial protection of their religious liberty or forgo the benefits of operating as corporations.”

The opinion said the RFRA’s text “shows that Congress designed the statute to provide very broad protection for religious liberty and did not intend to put merchants to such a choice.”

Alito said “the purpose of extending rights to corporations is to protect the rights of people associated with the corporation, including shareholders, officers, and employees.”

“Protecting the free-exercise rights of closely held corporations thus protects the religious liberty of humans who own and control them.”

The opinion said while the dissent argues RFRA does not cover Conestoga, Hobby Lobby and Mardel, an affiliate company of Hobby Lobby, because they cannot “exercise religion,” the justices “offer no persuasive explanation for this conclusion.”

“The corporate form alone cannot explain it because RFRA indisputable protects nonprofit corporations. And the profit-making objective of the corporations cannot explain it because the court has entertained the free-exercise claims of individuals who were attempting to make a profit as retail merchants.”

The court said that “business practices compelled or limited by the tenets of a religious doctrine fall comfortably within the understanding of the ‘exercise of religion.’”

While the court ruling was not a sweeping First Amendment freedom of religion ruling, it concluded: “HHS’s contraceptive mandate substantially burdens the exercise of religion.”

“It requires the Hahns and Greens to engage in conduct that seriously violates their sincere religious belief that life begins at conception.”

The opinion made clear the priority of protecting religion.

“RFRA’s question is whether the mandate imposes a substantial burden on the objecting parties’ ability to conduct business in accordance with their religious beliefs. … It is not for the court to say that the religious beliefs of the plaintiffs are mistaken or unreasonable.”

Joining Alito were Chief Justice John Roberts, whose determination two years that Obamacare was a tax saved the law, Antonin Scalia, Anthony Kennedy and Clarence Thomas.

The opinion concluded that if the government is demanding free abortion-inducing drugs for women, it should pay for them.

Soviet Propaganda in Jay Carney’s Home Shows Another Communist in Obama Administration

carney kitchen

Do you remember Van Jones, admitted Communist and 9/11 truther, that resigned from the Obama Administration in June of 2009? Or maybe you recall Anita Dunn, former White House communications director who once upon a time said that Mao Zedong was one of the two philosophers that she admired the most?

Well, it appears that they are in good company. Jay Carney, current Obama Administration White House Press Secretary hearts Soviet propaganda. Perhaps he’s reminiscent about the millions that marxist Uncle Joe (Joseph Stalin) killed during his reign of the Soviet Empire. One can imagine that Carney’s miffed that Uncle Joe didn’t even come close to the millions murdered by Chairman Mao.

However, all hope is not lost. Surely Carney and his wife, ABC News contributor Claire Shipman, are taking lessons so that they can dance together on the graves of good American when the great American Communist Revolution comes and their dreams of a New World Order are fulfilled.

carney soviet women workerThe moral blindness of the American Ruling Class is on display. The Washingtonian Magazine, a glossy lifestyle and politics rag, has published a fawning profile of D.C. power couple Jay Carney and Claire Shipman that was a bit more revealing than intended. At the top of the piece was a photo of mom Claire with her son and daughter, flipping a fried egg in their beautiful kitchen/great room.

Ms. Shipman appears the absolute epitome of a have-it-all contemporary woman, able to work at a powerful and glamorous job (part-time at ABC News), raise two adorable children, and maintain the type of house most Americans can only dream about, while hubby works directly for the POTUS and faces the national media daily. Oh, and at 51 she is still beautiful.

carney enlistWhat could possibly be a fly in the ointment of the picture of perfection?

Well, how about those Soviet propaganda posters in the background? The Week noticed, and highlighted them, and Drudge put the story up.

Now, to be fair, both sides of the power couple studied Russian during their Ivy League educations (he: Yale, she: Columbia) and became Moscow correspondents for major news agencies (he: TIME Magazine back when it still mattered, she: CNN), where they met prior to the fall of the USSR. But the fact that they seem to be nostalgic for the communist era tells us a lot.

Golfing Obama Embraces Heat Wave as US Suffers Coldest Oct-March in 102 Years

Obama putin at frozen niagara falls

President Obama embraced a mid-winter heat wave by playing golf as the U.S. suffered its coldest October-March in 102 years. Niagara Falls froze over again earlier this month for the second time this winter prompting President Obama to drop all of his pseudo-presidential duties and immediately fly, using Air Force One, to the frozen falls for a round of golf. The President stated that, “The American people understand that I will not rest until every American has a job that wants one… or my handicap improves.

The heat wave generated by the global warming hoax had caused the great falls to freeze over for the second time this winter. Polar vortex heat waves are commonly justified by the Global Warming Alarmists’ hoaxsters as the natural result of man-made global warming. The record low Oct-March U.S. temperatures, in their view, prove that the global warming hoax is not merely a product of their vivid imaginations.

White House blog has said that they know that the “cold spell is of a type there’s reason to believe may become more frequent in a world that’s getting warmer, on average, because of greenhouse-gas pollution.”

Also, according to Global Warming Alarmists, Lake Michigan covered over by ice 90% this past winter was due to global warming as well. From now on, they claim, all weather, hot or cold, wet or dry, is caused by man-made global warming. They have even gone so far as to blame man retroactively for the last great Ice Age and are planning on using their pseudo-science to blame mankind for all ice ages that have occurred throughout history.

According to Steven Goddard, the coldest winter in 102 years is from data compiled from temperatures that were reported by all U.S. Historical Climatology Network (USHCN) stations. According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), “The USHCN is a designated subset of the NOAA Cooperative Observer Program (COOP) Network with sites selected according to their spatial coverage, record length, data completeness, and historical stability.
Coldest October-March In The US In 102 Years Chart

Not wanting to let facts get in the way of real science, the Global Warming Alarmists have vowed to increase insufficient taxation and regulation to burden the U.S. population and impose their will on the people, using force if and when necessary. Perhaps this is why the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) let it slip last year that they had planned on purchasing more than 1.6 billion rounds of hollow-point ammunition, along with 7,000 fully-automatic 5.56x45mm NATO “personal defense weapons” plus a huge stash of 30-round high-capacity magazines and had retrofitted over 2700 Mine-Resistant Armored Protection (MRAP) vehicles.

Obama Seeks Higher Black Unemployment Using Executive Options to Aid Illegal Aliens

black unemployment driven by illegal immigration

Amid the cries of “Si Si Puede” from the Oval Office at the White House from the Three Amigos during Festival Inmigración with the President could be heard the wails from the pain too many black families feel from the separation of employment that comes from our failed immigration policy.

The White House announced in a statement released Thursday that President Obama “has asked Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson to do an inventory of the Department’s current practices to see how it can conduct enforcement more humanely within the confines of the law.

The review on increased leniency of illegal aliens inside US the border would supplement the President’s already lackadaisical attitude and enforcement policy of current immigration laws.

A memorandum authored by the Obama Administration in 2012, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) instructed several Department of Homeland Security agencies to ignore illegal immigrants that came to the US as children. It is similar to the Dream Act (Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors) that was rejected by Congress.

Though it does not alter an individual’s existing immigration status or provide a pathway to citizenship, it does defer them from being subject to removal proceedings or from actually being removed from the country.

Estimates of those individuals that are eligible range as high as 1.76 million. According to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), over 500,000 have been the granted the deferment as of November 2013.

This new effort by President Obama seeking additional executive amnesty for illegal aliens came after his meeting with three member of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus (CHC).

The three Hispanic lawmakers at the Oval Office complaining about perceived increased deportations by the Obama Administration were CHC Chairman Congressman Rubén Hinojosa, a Democrat from Texas, Immigration Task Force Chairman Rep. Luis Gutiérrez (D-IL), and Chairman of the House Democratic Caucus Rep. Xavier Becerra (D-CA). The Three Amigos had threatened to introduce a resolution demanding action.

Cowering from behind his desk at the Oval Office at the threat of their demands, President Obama appeared clearly shaken after the meeting. Though it is not apparent exactly what policy changes such an inventory by Jeh Jonhson would entail, ignoring current immigration laws by way of executive order or orders is certainly at the top of the list of Jeh’s recommendations.

Obama had threatened to use his pen and his phone earlier in the year at his State of the Union Address to bypass Congress. His current executive order amnesty though has been decried by illegal alien activist as being too strict, citing record high deportations.

Apparently they missed Jeh Johnson’s recent congressional testimony where he admitted that the deportation numbers reported by DHS were artificially inflated by the inclusion of border apprehensions. The Obama White House had been claiming a “record number” of deportations trying to make the President look, well Presidential. It backfired when it earned him the nickname “Deporter in Chief,” even though actual interior deportations had declined by 40 percent since 2009.

response released by Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), a senior member of the Senate Judiciary Committee stated:

It is astonishing that the President would order an ‘enforcement review’ not for the purposes of repairing enforcement but weakening it further. According to ICE’s own published statistics, the vast majority of those removed from the country have been convicted of a crime or involved with a serious crime.

Illegal immigrants in the U.S. who don’t meet the Administration’s ‘priorities’—even if they come into contact with immigration enforcement—are widely exempt from federal immigration law. And approximately two-thirds of removals last year were in fact not deportations at all but were instead of apprehensions of those interdicted crossing the border.

This lawlessness is a large factor in the decline of wages for Americans, immigrant and native-born, alike. President Obama should demonstrate more concern for struggling American workers of all backgrounds.

ICE’s statistics reveal that a full 82 percent of interior removals in 2013 were convicted criminals. Overall, ICE reported that “98 percent of the agency’s total removals were convicted criminals, recent border crossers, illegal re-entrants or those previously removed by ICE.”

HHS: Obamacare Not Delayed! Pssst. Hey Bub, Want a Delay?

julia hhs obamacare mandate loophole

On Wedesday, Katheleen Sebelius appeared before Congress and said that there would be no more delays with the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare. But there’s a hitch with that. A delay may not be a delay.

Okay, when is a delay not a delay? When it’s a “hardship,” that’s when. Just about everybody has experienced a hardship or two of one type or another at some point in their lives. I mean, nobody’s life is perfect, right?. Surely, everybody gets into a little trouble every now and again. Well, almost everybody. I guess maybe there are few saints left, but I haven’t met any of them.

For the rest of the world it’s like, where’s your homework? The dog ate it. Your payment is late. I got robbed. Or your significant other finds out you were with someone else. It wasn’t me. All sorts of things can happen.

It turns out that the Obama Administration understands this all too well and is willing to forgive us our trespasses as we would forgive those who trespass against us. Obama is hoping that we will especially forgive him and the Democrats before the upcoming election later this year where a whole slew of Senate seats are up in play.

Released unceremoniously earlier this month by Health and Human Services (HHS) was the Application for Exemption from the Shared Responsibility Payment for Individuals who Experience Hardships. The application form gives the obligatory Obamacare rundown such as explaining that in 2014 everybody is supposed to have health coverage or make a payment on their federal income tax return and what not. Then goes on to say that some people are exempt. It further says that you can the use this application to “apply for an exemption from the shared responsibility payment.” For those of you not familiar with the new governmentspeak, a shared responsibility payment is a tax. It’s your tax. You know, your fair share.
Please note: From the glorious laborings of the progressive and liberal mind (the enlightened ones), never use three letters when describing something when you can use three words. Multisyllable words are preferred.

The application then goes on to list hardship categories and documentation that’s required and says that “You may qualify for a hardship exemption if you experienced one of the following” and goes on to list: you were homeless, or you were evicted in the last six months or were facing eviction or foreclosure, or got a shutoff notice from a utility company, or you experienced domestic violence, bankruptcy, medical bills in the last 24 months, increased expenses due to caring for an ill, disabled, or aging family member, or your current health plan is being cancelled and you can’t afford another plan (even though Obamacare was signed into law as the “Affordable Care Act”).

All but two or three hardships require documentation be submitted with your exemption application. If you are homeless or have experienced domestic violence, then no documentation is required.

And if none of the above fits your hardship classification, they’ve got a category for that too, it’s kind of a catch-all, if you know what I mean. If you’ve experienced another hardship in obtaining health  insurance (wink wink, nudge nudge), well that’s covered. They would like for you to submit documentation for that, if possible (wink wink, nudge nudge). No documentation? No problem. That sounds alarmingly familiar, doesn’t it? Just like our immigration policy, right?

HHS Obamacare loophole hardship exemption

With so many delays so far (there’s been almost 40 changes total to Obamacare), it’s a wonder that there’s anything left for the Democrats to crow about to their dwindling body politic. “We want healthcare! When do we want it? Eh, whenever.

Senate Dems Declare WAR Against the Weather!

Earth Death Star Ray WAR 800 x 400

A late-night gabfest by over two dozen US Senators ended with the Democratic Senators declaring war against the weather. The normal legislative process was bypassed with Senate authorization granting President Obama Executive Order authority to use all “necessary and appropriate force” against those whom he determined “planned, authorized, committed or aided the “Global Warming attacks.

One Senator on the chamber floor was overheard to have said, “It’s the weather. It’s mucking up our Global  Warming initiative.” Another said anonymously, “That Storm Front must be dissipated at any cost,” indicating that higher taxes were in order to wage a full on assault.

The Authorized Use of Military Force Against the Weather is expected to hit Obama’s desk immediately unless he is, of course, on the course, golfing. “We’ll probably send it to him there, but he may want to use the autopen  from the 19th hole,” said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

Opposition to the Executive Order authorization was nill as the all-night jammy party was exclusively for Democratic Senators and their aides, Chipotle, lobbyist, gophers, bankers, interns, bundlers, and occupiers and fellow progressives from Media Matters, Daily KOS, and the Huffington Post, as well as George Soros, Van Jones, Valerie Jarrett, Ron Podesta, David Plouff, Cass Sunstein, Anita Dunn, Piers Morgan, Alec Baldwin, Martin Bashir, Anthony Weiner, and Ted Kennedy. In case you’re wondering about Ted Kennedy. He’s still around keeping an eye out for “his” Senate seat.

The text of the Resolution reads as follows:

Authorization for Use of Military Force Against The Weather (AUMFATW)

The Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMFATW) Pub. THC. 420, codified at some number and statute or another and passed overwhelmingly by the Liberal Statists Senate on March 11, 2014, authorizes the use of United States Armed Forces against those responsible for the attacks on Global Warming. The authorization grants the President Executive Order authority to use all “necessary and appropriate force” against those whom he determined “planned, authorized, committed or aided “the Global Warming attacks,” or who have harbored said persons or groups in denial of Global Warming or in attacks attacks thereof. The AUMFATW is to be signed by Barrack Hussein Obama as soon as the Democratic Senate members wake up from sleepy time and can get it to his desk, or the golf course, whichever comes first.

IRS Readies to Collect Obamacare Tax, err… Individual Shared Responsibility Payment

IRS Swat

The left and the right. Yin and yang. Good and bad. Right and wrong. If it’s right, it’s individual reponsibility. If it’s left, it’s individual “shared” responsiblity.

What that means is, that for the left there is no responsibility at all. And why should there be?

There is no need to be responsible when other individuals will pick up the tab when you slack off. No health insurance? Obamacare! No money? No problem! Obama will  subsidize you.

And because Obama loves the American people so much, he’s having his friends over the IRS  “remind” us that they will be ready to collect our payments of our individual shared responsibility starting with our 2014 tax returns when filing in 2015.

The Obama administration argued vehemently that the penalty for failing to comply with the individual mandate of the Affordable Care Act was not a tax and they even pursued that argument to the Supreme Court. But not once do I recall anyone referring to it as an individual shared responsibility payment.

Anyways, this is a new year and a time for new things. So, the IRS has decided to help us out here a little bit and has given us a catchy phrase. Apparently the word tax was not enough of a tongue twister, it being too low-brow an’ all, to be acceptable by the Obama administration. And besides, the poor things had worked for so long and so hard claiming that it wasn’t a tax.

But the folks over at Americans for Tax Reform still do. A tax to them is akin to Stein’s rose. Tax is a tax is a tax is a tax.

According to Americans for Tax Reform which caught this a few days ago:

President Obama’s Internal Revenue Service today quietly released a series of Obamacare “Health Care Tax Tips” warning Americans that they must obtain “qualifying” health insurance – as defined by the federal government – or face a “shared responsibility payment” when filing their tax returns in 2015. The term “shared responsibility payment” refers to the Obamacare individual mandate tax, one of at least seven tax hikes in the healthcare law that directly hit families making less than $250,000 per year.

In “Four Tax Facts about the Health Care Law for Individuals” the agency writes:

Your 2014 tax return will ask if you had insurance coverage or qualified for an exemption.  If not, you may owe a shared responsibility payment when you file in 2015.

In “The Individual Shared Responsibility Payment- An Overview” the agency warns Americans they must prove they were covered each and every month of the year:

For any month in 2014 that you or any of your dependents don’t maintain coverage and don’t qualify for an exemption, you will need to make an individual shared responsibility payment with your 2014 tax return filed in 2015.

Calling it something else doesn’t make it any better nor does it help the American public forget what it really is. It’s a tax, plain and simple.
