Healthcare Commissar Kathleen Supercilious finds a Congressman’s boiling point with her inane and implacable duckspeak:
In a contentious exchange with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius over her repeated claims that mandated health services do not raise costs for consumers in the form of higher insurance premiums, Rep. John Shimkus (R-Ill.) waved his hand in apparent surrender and said to her, “It’s like talking to the Republic of Korea or something.”
Shimkus apparently was referring to North Korea, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, where the Communist rulers … spout pro-government propaganda that is then glowingly reported by state-run media.
The exchange with Sebelius took place Wednesday morning during a House Energy and Science health subcommittee hearing entitled, “PPACA (Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act) Implementation Failures: What’s Next?”
How long could you attempt to drag a straight answer out of this arrogant apparatchik without screaming obscenities or getting dragged off by security for attempting to wring her turkey neck?

The gay agenda is not a matter of outliers just wanting normal people to leave them alone to do their own thing. Phony rhetoric aside, when it comes to bullying, the normal folks are the ones who only want to be left alone without having depravity shoved in their faces. …

Don’t let Goldman Sachs International Chairman Peter Sutherland lull you off to sleep with his pompous, soporific drone. What he is talking about here in front of the Select Committee on the European Union for Home Affairs, Health, and Education is soft genocide through displacement. Permanently altering the demographics of Western countries — i.e., replacing the people who live in them and made them what they are with the people who live in the Third World and made it what it is — is not a bug in liberal immigration policy. It is the central feature:
Via Kitman TV:
“The demographic challenges in a number of European member states, however difficult it may be to explain this to the citizens of those states, is absolutely unquestionable in terms of a crucial dynamic for economic growth. A declining and ageing population is destructive of prosperity… So demographics are a key element of the debate, and a key argument for the development of—I hesitate to use the word because people have attacked it—multicultural states. It is impossible to consider that the degree of homogeneity which is implied by the alternative argument can survive, because states have to become more open in terms of the people who inhabit them…
Sutherland goes on to denounce Europeans “who still nurse a sense of our homogeneity and difference from others, which is precisely what the European Union, in my view, should be doing its best to undermine.”
There won’t always be an England — or a Europe, or an Australia, or an America — if the globalist liberal elite has its way. One great big Third World hellhole with zero upward mobility or recognition of individual rights and responsibilities will be much easier for them to rule over. The European race has a very limited place in the master plan.
The Final Solution for white people won’t involve gas chambers and concentration camps. A combination of abortion, promotion of perversion, disincentives to marry and have kids, open borders, and easy access to welfare by foreigners will accomplish the task.

Finally, a silver lining has been found to the radical expansion of the food stamp rolls to over 47 million moochers under Obama. In light of the information below, it should help stimulate the beer, liquor, and tobacco industries.
Jesse Watters of the O’Reilly Factor headed down to Key West to investigate the laid back lifestyle that is becoming ever more popular. From an interview with a resident:
WATTERS: Are you on food stamps?
UNIDENTIFIED MALE 4: Yes. I trade the stamps for beer and vodka, and cigarettes.
In a redistributive system, that’s what keeps the economy rolling along — toward the edge of a cliff.

Watch the other hand. While the herd is distracted by showy hagiographies of a former communist terrorist and the fiery crashing and burning of ObamaCare, Comrade Obama is quietly pressing the advantage his henchman Harry Reid acquired for him by discarding the centuries-old right of the minority party to filibuster judicial appointments. From Fox News:
Senators voted 56-38 to approve Washington lawyer Patricia Millett to join the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, the nation’s second most powerful court.
Millett probably would have been blocked by filibuster — before the Senate was fundamentally transformed into a rubber stamp for Obama.
Both sides saw Millett’s appointment as pivotal. It will give Democratic-appointed judges a 5-4 majority over those chosen by Republican presidents for that court, which rules on the legality of White House actions and federal agency regulations.
Wars have been fought over less. Control of the DC district court means Obama can inflict anything he likes through the fourth branch of government, the grotesquely massive and utterly unaccountable bureaucracy.
Economically crippling carbon taxes couldn’t make it through even a Democrat-controlled Senate, due to fear of retribution by voters. But the ideologically rabid EPA has no such concerns. Consequently, oppressive restrictions on the harmless carbon emissions that result from literally all economically productive activity will be imposed with zero meaningful input from voters. This will help drive up unemployment, increasing the dependency on federal largess on which the Democrat Party relies so heavily, and move us rapidly toward a centrally planned economy similar to the Soviet Union’s.
Even with the most shameless exploitation of Newtown conceivable, Democrats were unable to ram through seriously damaging attacks on the Second Amendment at the national level. No matter; the EPA can simply declare that lead hurts the environment.
There is no freedom that cannot be snuffed out by unelected and unfireable federal bureaucrats at malevolent rogue agencies like the EPA, IRS, and NSA. Our only defense short of an armed uprising is the courts. Obama et al. are systematically dismantling that defense.

It isn’t only guns or any other weapons of even the totally imaginary variety that send moonbat educrats into paroxysms of authoritarian overreaction. A 6-year-old at Lincoln School of Science and Technology in Canon City, Colorado has been suspended for kissing a girl’s hand:
First grader Hunter Yelton told KRDO-TV (http://tinyurl.com/lyhxh7l) that he has a crush on a girl at school and she likes him back.
“It was during class, yeah. We were doing reading group, and I leaned over and kissed her on the hand. That’s what happened,” he said.
How brazenly he confesses to his lecherous crime!
The school’s principal has applied the ominous term “sexual harassment.” Fortunately no legal action is anticipated at this point.
Actually, there was nothing the least abnormal about Hunter’s behavior, as a child psychologist confirms:
“For most 6-year-old boys, absolutely. That would be a normal behavior,” said Sandy Wurtele, a child clinical psychologist who specializes in child sexual development and the prevention of childhood sexual abuse.
However, liberal hysteria over guns real and otherwise, sexual harassment, “bullying,” et cetera, ad nauseam has reached such a frenzy that teachers report even the most trivial incidents out of fear of losing their jobs.
If Hunter has learned his lesson, next time he will kiss a boy’s hand instead of a girl’s. Both the teacher and the kiss recipient will be compelled to approve, lest bullying charges be applied.

They used to say that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. But we didn’t know the true meaning of insanity until recently. Now the definition is tolerating a president who would preside over shenanigans like this:
To outfit Afghanistan’s security forces with new helicopters, the Pentagon bypassed U.S. companies and turned instead to Moscow for dozens of Russian Mi-17 rotorcraft at a cost of more than $1 billion.
Senior Pentagon officials assured skeptical members of Congress that the Defense Department had made the right call. They repeatedly cited a top-secret 2010 study they said named the Mi-17 as the superior choice.
Turns out the study told a very different story, according to unclassified excerpts obtained by The Associated Press.
An American-made helicopter, the U.S. Army’s workhorse Chinook built by Boeing in Pennsylvania, was found to be “the most cost-effective single platform type fleet for the Afghan Air Force over a twenty year” period, according to the excerpts.
The 63 Mi-17s are being acquired through a contract that was awarded without competition to Russia’s notoriously corrupt arms export agency Rosoboronexport.
[A]n internal Defense Contract Audit Agency document shows that the department could not conduct a comprehensive cost comparison because Rosoboronexport wouldn’t allow U.S. auditors to look at its books.
Now that is wacky.
Having troops in Afghanistan is also insane, considering that Obama said long ago he is not interested in victory, and that under his demented rules of engagement they are not there to fight but only to be killed. Afghanistan is a Muslim country, and the blood and treasure wasted there will not make it any less hostile to us when the troops finally leave by the end of next year.
Americans, some of whom could be building helicopters, are out of work thanks to Obama aggressively fueling unemployment with virtually every domestic policy. Meanwhile, he shovels our money at our Russian adversaries — who also supply military gear to the openly hostile regimes in Iran and Syria — as he lays waste to our Constitution.
To put up with this just so that liberals can congratulate themselves on how much they revere Obama’s skin color, we would truly have to be nuts.

Kurt Schlichter observes that this is the season for militant atheists to whine:
There’s nothing like the holidays for laughing at anti-religious malcontents being driven to madness by the thought of Christians and Jews celebrating their faiths. Crosses, menorahs, happy people with satisfying personal lives – these things drive the militant atheists into a sputtering rage.
Watching them fume is the gift that keeps on giving.
But this Christmas season, the militant moonbats are plotting revenge:
We, The Satanic Temple, an established New York City-based religious organization, seek to donate a public monument to Oklahoma’s Capitol Preservation Commission for display upon Oklahoma City’s capitol grounds. As an “homage” to Satan, the purpose of the monument is to complement and contrast the Ten Commandments monument that already resides on the North side of the building.
However, Oklahoma may be the wrong venue for this stunt:
Several lawmakers on Monday were highly critical of a proposal by the New York City-based Satanic Temple to build a monument near the recently erected Ten Commandments monument on the Capitol grounds.
“I think it is a joke,” said Senate Pro Tem Brian Bingman, R-Sapulpa.
“This is a faith-based nation and a faith-based state,” said Rep. Earl Sears, R-Bartlesville. “I think it is very offensive they would contemplate or even have this kind of conversation.”
In Oklahoma, even Democrats hesitate to side with Satan.
“It is not something the people of Oklahoma would support, and the people of Oklahoma support the Ten Commandments monument,” said Rep. Eric Proctor, D-Tulsa.
“It is not going to get approved here without a court battle,” said Rep. Doug Cox, R-Grove. “I can assure you.”
The Ten Commandments monument was paid for with $10,000 donated by Broken Arrow Republican Rep. Mike Ritze and his family plus $10,000 raised privately.
The Satanists had better try this back in New York — assuming they can find a display of the Ten Commandments to defile in New York.
But I’m forgetting: coercion is the whole point of liberalism. The stunt would be pointless if not forced on people who find it appalling. The ACLU has filed suit to have the Ten Commandments removed. No doubt another suit will follow to have the satanic monument erected in their place.

There is a more sinister crime than having a beer, than fornicating, than murder itself. Even if you only say it to an alien from outer space, that crime is to speak the iniquitous words, “Merry Christmas”:
Obviously these words must be stricken from the language lest a Muslim be offended, right moonbats?
According to the liberal doctrine of relativism, this malevolent kook’s ravings are as morally profound as anything in the Bible.

The authoritarian clowns running our government get more like the villains in a James Bond spoof with every passing trespass against our freedom and privacy. The latest:
The U.S. National Reconnaissance Office launched a new spy satellite Thursday evening on mission NROL-39 — and the new logo and tagline are quite an eye opener.
The new logo features a giant, world-dominating octopus, its sucker-covered tentacles encircling the planet while it looks on with determination, a steely glint in its enormous eye. The logo carries a five-word tagline: “Nothing is beyond our reach.”
What exactly is NROL-39 all about? Our rulers aren’t telling.
The NROL-39 mission was classified, as are nearly all missions and satellites launched by the secretive NRO. It was carried aloft by a United Launch Alliance rocket from the Vandenberg Air Force Base in California at 11:13 p.m. PST, according to NASAspaceflight.com. Because the launch trajectory matched that used by other launches, it was likely carrying a third satellite for the agency’s radar reconnaissance fleet, the site said.
Here’s the logo:

Finally some good news. General Motors has been officially denationalized, and the whole government takeover debacle only cost taxpayers a small (by Obama spending standards) fortune:
The U.S. government sold its last shares of automaker General Motors Co (GM.N) on Monday, marking an end to a historic bailout of one of America’s most storied companies.
The sale leaves taxpayers short about $10 billion of the funds that the Treasury sank into the automaker in 2009.
The problems that put GM in such a precarious position remain uncorrected, in contrast to the preferable situation we would have if bankruptcy proceedings had taken their natural course.
In addition to Government Motors,
The government also took a loss of just over $1 billion on its investments in Detroit automaker Chrysler. Taxpayers remain intertwined with GM’s former lending arm, Ally Financial Inc.
Putting Chrysler back in private hands won’t be as easy. Obama handed the company over to his union cronies, illegally shafting secured creditors in the process.
So much for bogus attempts by Obama and his devotees to convince taxpayers that the government had recovered our coerced “investment” in the auto industry.
At least now that GM is an ostensibly private company again, it can make cars targeted to consumer demand rather than moonbat ideology — to some extent, for now.
They don’t call her the Bitter Half for nothing. The blonde is the Prime Minister of Denmark, Helle Thorning-Schmidt; the setting is the Nelson Mandela memorial communist terrorist worship service in South Africa:
I wonder whose idea it was to switch seats.
