Koch Industries: Obama trying to “Chill free speech and squelch dissent”
OBAMA TO CUT HEALTHCARE BENEFITS FOR ACTIVE DUTY AND RETIRED US MILITARY
The Obama administration’s proposed defense budget calls for military families and retirees to pay sharply more for their healthcare, while leaving unionized civilian defense workers’ benefits untouched. The proposal is causing a major rift within the Pentagon, according to U.S. officials. Several congressional aides suggested the move is designed to increase the enrollment in Obamacare’s state-run insurance exchanges.
The disparity in treatment between civilian and uniformed personnel is causing a backlash within the military that could undermine recruitment and retention.
“We shouldn’t ask our military to pay our bills when we aren’t willing to impose a similar hardship on the rest of the population,” Rep. Howard “Buck” McKeon, chairman of the House Armed Services Committee and a Republican from California, said in a statement to the Washington Free Beacon. “We can’t keep asking those who have given so much to give that much more.”
Administration officials told Congress that one goal of the increased fees is to force military retirees to reduce their involvement in Tricare and eventually opt out of the program in favor of alternatives established by the 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare.

The Obama administration, which promised during its transition to power that it would enhance “whistle-blower laws to protect federal workers,” has been more prone than any administration in history in trying to silence and prosecute federal workers.
The Espionage Act, enacted back in 1917 to punish those who gave aid to our enemies, was used three times in all the prior administrations to bring cases against government officials accused of providing classified information to the media. It has been used six times since the current president took office.
We’re headed down the same road. “The British Government has run out of money because all the money was spent in the good years,” the Chancellor said. “The money and the investment and the jobs need to come from the private sector.”
“In other words what we are not going to do in this Budget is borrow more money to either increase spending or cut taxes.”
Too bad Obama and his ilk (i.e. mostly Democrats, but some Republicans too) don’t get this simple truth.

Well I’m worried about it – but there is some hope they’ve wised up.
Obama is behind Romney and Paul and Santorum has him in a statistical dead heat (i.e. within the margin of error it’s a tie) – only Gingritch trails him and I expect even Newt will pull ahead soon.
Oil Crises and Pond Scum
With gasoline and heating oil prices reaching and surpassing $4.00 a gallon and $5.00 and even $6.oo on the near horizon, Obama’s Energy Secretary Steven Chu should be given a nice round of applause for being so insightful in 2008 when he said, “Somehow we have to figure out how to boost the price of gasoline to the levels in Europe.”
We’re not quite there yet but we’re on the Chu trajectory.
Chu’s reasoning, if you can call it that, was that high gas prices would force Americans to buy more fuel efficient cars and move their residences closer to their places of employment.
A typically-liberal approach to social manipulation, Chu’s muddle-headed plan didn’t take into account the future fuel efficient Chevy Volt’s tendency to explode, the added cost of buying hybrids, or the impracticality of most Americans switching jobs during a jobs’ shortage.
Never confuse liberals with reality.
They say their ultimate goal is to end American reliance on foreign oil and toward that end Obama and Company refuse to open up ANWR to drilling, refuse to issue off-shore drilling permits, refuse to approve the Keystone XL pipeline due to environmental fears, loan billions to Mexico to fund offshore drilling off California’s coastline, and ridicules Republican demands to ”drill more.”
All are peculiar inactions unless one considers that Obamians are intent on crippling America and reducing us to the level of a Third World nation, an international adjunct of his pledge to share the wealth.
Perhaps the greatest irony in all this is Secretary Chu’s current concern that high oil prices threaten to stifle America’s and world economies.
Just imagine what will happen when United States’ gas prices reach European levels!
As a Nobel Prize winner, Chu must be correct in all he thinks, no? Then again, Barack Hussein Obama was awarded a Nobel Peace Prize and has been warring ever since.
This president, to whom we are shackled until at least January, 2013, has an enviable knack for interpreting realities . . . (Read more at http://www.genelalor.com/blog1/?p=14770.)
Latest Wikileaks dump shows Dems effort to throw 2008 election
The Nobel Peace Prize is a JOKE! It’s official, even OBAMA agrees with me.
Army Pfc. Bradley Manning has been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize, the Associated Press reports. Manning’s nomination places him along side Bill Clinton, Bill Gates, and other international figures, who have been nominated for this year’s award.
Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks who allegedly received the leaked information from Manning, was nominated last year for the award, though he did not ultimately receive it.
Clearly this prize has nothing to do with peace:
President Barack Obama received a Nobel Peace Prize in 2009, his first year in the executive office.
It’s the world equivalent of “everyone gets a ribbon day”:

Officers hurt in Occupy clash at Calif. Capitol
SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — At least two law enforcement officers were injured Monday during a clash with members of the Occupy movement who were at the state Capitol to counter a rally by a group protesting violence by blacks against whites in South Africa.
The clash erupted in the afternoon as California Highway Patrol and Sacramento police officers were escorting about 35 members of the South Africa Project to a parking garage after their protest outside the Capitol building.
About 50 members of Occupy Oakland began throwing cans and bottles at the South Africa group and at the officers. The Occupy members then clashed with the officers as people with the pro-whites group hurried into the parking garage.
What we need is a decent politician, and that’s why we should support Hank for the Senate.
Occupy can only use lies to advance its agenda. Caught in a lie, the excuse is “it was exaggerated”, the new code word for “flat out lie”.
