Never Forget the Other Obamacare Lie; Rates Jacked Up

One Obamacare lie was about keeping your doctor and your plan, but another lie was about rates going down rather than up. I think the line, “If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor,” and “If you like your insurance plan you can keep your plan” are burned into our memories as our President lying to us to get us to go along with his horrible plan. But we mustn’t forget another oft-repeated promise: Obamacare was going to lower rates for the average family about $2,500 a year. Read more […]

There Are No Spending Cuts in Barack Obama’s Budget

Barack Obama’s budget is being described as lowering the deficit through spending cuts. All lies. As the budget gets unveiled, we need to remember that stupid “victory lap” that Secretary of the Treasury Jack Lew took back in October, claiming to have lowered the deficit. As Bob Allen wrote, You know you’re doomed when your Secretary of the Treasury takes a “victory lap” simply because the Federal Government devoured an all-time record of citizens’ hard-earned money—and it still spent Read more […]

EPA Tells Lies about Climate Change, Again

If the head of the EPA tells lies about global warming, what else is she willing to do for her job? At the EPA’s web log, Gina McCarthy writes, “We Must Act Now to Protect our Winters.” 2014 was the hottest year on record, and each of the last three decades has been hotter than the last. In mountain towns that depend on winter tourism, the realities of climate change really hit home. Shorter, warmer winters mean a shorter season to enjoy the winter sports we love—and a financial Read more […]

Blaming North Korea, the First Gruberism of 2015

The Administration is blaming North Korea because it wants an excuse to sanction them. Here is the story from BBC: “Sony cyber-attack: North Korea faces new US sanctions.” President Barack Obama signed an executive order on Friday allowing sanctions on three North Korean organisations and 10 individuals. The White House said the move was a response to North Korea’s “provocative, destabilising, and repressive actions”. US sanctions are already in place over North Korea’s nuclear programme. But Read more […]

Western Unfaithfulness: Grubering Foreign Policy

This is the result of Western unfaithfulness. Alexander J. Motyl writes in Aljazeera America: Even more destabilizing than the invasion of Crimea was Putin’s claim that he had the right to march into “the territory of Ukraine” in defense of Russian citizens. Here’s the entire statement of his request to Russia’s Council of the Federation, which immediately granted him his wishes: “In connection with the extraordinary situation that has developed in Ukraine and the threat to Read more […]

Jonathan Gruber: Lies and Glue

The lies of Jonathan Gruber and his friends undermine the glue that holds society together. The recent revelations of statements by a professor from MIT named Jonathan Gruber, about how the Obama White House purposefully deceived the American people concerning the costs associated with Obamacare, are intriguing on a few levels. Mr. Gruber’s statements about the deceptive intent of the drafters of the Affordable Care Act, are, of course, outrageous and insulting on their face. But Read more […]

Why Do We Have a High Infant Mortality Rate?

You should be neither excited nor depressed that the U.S. has a high infant mortality rate. There are lies, damn lies, and statistics. For a developed country, the United States have a high (yea, verily, very high) infant mortality rate. And according to this article at The Atlantic, a major reason for that is that the United States reports all live preemie births as live births. Apparently many other countries do not record the births of babies born twenty-four or twenty-three weeks Read more […]

Hysteria Much? Dems Call Tea Party “Radical Terrorists.”

Calling the opposition “radical terrorists” or “a terrorist organization” is proof of hysterical hate. We need to remember that, while the press pretends Republicans are the “haters,” they only do so by projecting the Democrat mindset onto conservatives. (Thanks to Ian Tuttle at the National Review blog for bringing this to our attention.) Here is a translation provided by the Hispanic Federation of Texas Republicans: These two flags represent friendship, liberty, opportunity Read more […]

John Kerry’s Claim that 97% of “the World’s Scientists” Believe in Manmade Climate Change is a Lie

From the Wall Street Journal: Last week Secretary of State John Kerry warned graduating students at Boston College of the “crippling consequences” of climate change. “Ninety-seven percent of the world’s scientists,” he added, “tell us this is urgent.” Where did Mr. Kerry get the 97% figure? Perhaps from his boss, President Obama, who tweeted on May 16 that “Ninety-seven percent of scientists agree: #climate change is real, man-made and dangerous.” Or maybe from NASA, which posted (in more measured Read more […]

Chicago’s Lowering Crime Rate Belongs in the Fiction Section

Chicago’s crime rate has been plummeting but, thanks to a pair of real journalists, that lie has been exposed as yet another example of government deception. From Chicago Magazine by David Bernstein and Noah Isackson: “The Truth About Chicago’s Crime Rates.” On October 28, a pathologist ruled the death of Tiara Groves a homicide by “unspecified means.” This rare ruling means yes, somebody had killed Groves, but the pathologist couldn’t pinpoint the exact cause of death. Given Read more […]

The International Media Recognizes the Fraudulent Obamacare Numbers

Like all of the false promises originally used to sell the nation on Obamacare, today’s triumphant numbers are apparently just more pathological spin from what could very well be the most shameless liars in all of history. From the Daily Mail: “’The debate over repealing this law is over’: Obama boasts 7.1 MILLION have signed up to Obamacare – but study shows just 858,000 newly insured Americans have paid up!” Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that Read more […]

Michelle Obama’s “Success” In Reducing Childhood Obesity Never Happened

If you were reading me in January, you might remember how shocked I was by a claim (one of many false claims) that President Barack Obama made in his state of the union speech. I wrote, “If The President Can Credit Michelle Obama With Lowering Childhood Obesity, Then He can Get Away With Anything.” I know there were much more dangerous and important things said in President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address, but one relatively minor claim completely surprised and shocked me. […] As Read more […]
