War on women coming from the Democratic front

Back during the 2012 election, Democrats were quick to seize on some Republican words — like Todd Akin’s remark about “legitimate rape” and late-term abortion, orRush Limbaugh’s calling Sandra Fluke a “slut” for wanting free birth control — to build the notion of a “war on women.”
But if you look past words to actual deeds, most of the action in the war on women seems to be coming from the Democratic front lately. Just consider these cases:
First, Democratic San Diego Mayor Bob Filner. So far seven women have accused him of sexual harassment. According to one report, Filner said, “You’ll have to excuse me for what’s about to happen. It’s your fault,” before pinning a woman in a restaurant booth. Other allegations include kissing, grabbing and assorted other inappropriate behavior.
As is usually the case, this stuff was no secret within the world of San Diego Democratic politics, but even though there were complaints, the leadership supported Filner anyway until things went public. And even afterward, until the pressure became too great, Democrats supported him. As with Bill Clinton, and his alleged assaults on Paula Jones, Juanita Broddrick and Kathleen Willey, tribal loyalties to party kin outweighed any concern for women as a group — or for the accusers as individuals. The accusers were tossed over the side until the publicity became too strong to ignore. Democrats — like Hillary with Bill — stood by their man, Tammy Wynette-style.

The Whitehouse uses Behavior Modification–ON US

 

Via Fox News:
The federal government is hiring what it calls a “Behavioral Insights Team” that will look for ways to subtly influence people’s behavior, according to a document describing the program obtained by FoxNews.com. Critics warn there could be unintended consequences to such policies, while supporters say the team could make government and society more efficient.
While the program is still in its early stages, the document shows the White House is already working on such projects with almost a dozen federal departments and agencies including the Department of Health and Human Services and the Department of Agriculture.
“Behavioral sciences can be used to help design public policies that work better, cost less, and help people to achieve their goals,” reads the government document describing the program, which goes on to call for applicants to apply for positions on the team.

CBO: Killing Babies Will Save the Government Money

Michael Norton | Jul 25, 2013

“Priceless” is the value most moms and dads would put on their newborn child. A newborn represents the delicate and fragile nature of life itself. Many would call their newborn baby a “miracle.”

But the current administration in Washington, D.C. does not seem to agree with the “priceless” evaluation—at least it does not act like it agrees.

If there is a way to support the abortion industry with taxpayer dollars, President Obama and the rest of our government finds and implements it.

Now, even the “non-partisan” Congressional Budget Office has joined this pro-abortion cabal by placing a value on the lives of unborn children. CBO recently reported that, if passed by Congress, the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act would cost the government $225 million over the next 10 years by allowing children to be born instead of aborted.

The CBO says killing children will save the government money in healthcare costs and expenditures in welfare and other social programs. Well, by all means then, let’s kill some children, shall we?

The Orwellian implications of the CBO’s report are terrifying. It first assumes each and every child born as a result of the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act will be a failure and thus a burden on society. One can hear a potential Planned Parenthood rallying cry – “an abortion in time saves the government a dime.” What’s next? Abortion tax credits? Not much of a stretch in light of the Obama administration’s insistence that people of faith provide abortion-inducing drugs as part of their health insurance plans.

The irony of it all is that those who would sacrifice our children on the altar of “balancing the budget” care not one whit about burdening future generations with mountains of debt. While President Obama’s trillion-dollar deficits stretch as far into the future as the mind can conceive, his administration is giving Planned Parenthood more than $500 million a year. That’s a half-a-billion dollars that could be spent to save life instead of taking it.

Who today holds to the biblical command “Thou shalt not steal”? Not our government. It is gone, just like the 55 million pre-born children who have been snuffed out in America since 1973.

Human beings—and an unborn baby is a human being from the moment of conception—are not simply neutral statistics on a spreadsheet. If they were, then CBO would base part of the cost of funding Meals on Wheels, food stamps, and other social programs on the longevity of the people served.

All thinking Americans should be offended by the CBO’s utilitarian estimates. These numbers turn human beings who are valuable in and of themselves into objects which can (should?) be discarded if found too expensive.

We are right to have the same righteous indignation over the abortion of our unborn children that our Founding Fathers had in their battle against government oppression and tyranny. Innocent unborn children, the most vulnerable among us, cannot be measured by a “price tag.” Every innocent life deserves to be protected.

Sheik Obama Tells Islamists His United States Is Willing To Surrender

posted on May 27, 2013 byJohn DeMayo

The king of double speak, President Obama, has just admitted that he has no intention of keeping Americans safe from Islamist aggression here or abroad. This should come as a tremendous comfort to terrorism’s big money backers. Saudi Arabia and Qatar will no longer have to worry about the Obama Administration getting in the way of their terror financing and global Islamic aspirations.

I am referring to Sheik Obama’s recent National Security speech.

Over the last 5 years, Obama has gone to great lengths to shield and encourage aggressive Islamist influence inside the United States and elsewhere. Nothing is an act of terror unless Obama says so. No one is our enemy unless the boy King proclaims it so and anyone who says different find himself or herself vilified, investigated and harassed by federal authorities. Unless of course they are Muslims. Granted access to the highest levels of government, Muslims now help shape Obama’s new anti-American national security policies.

Do not be fooled by the token drone strike or the alleged masterful use of special operations to eradicate terrorism’s leaders. If the missiles fired are not finding targets in Saudi Arabia and Qatar chances are the Sunni leaders of global Islamic terrorism are directing them

The people with the RPG’s and AK-47’s have never really been the big problem. It is the people who provide the money to recruit, train, arm and execute small and large offensives in the Islamist war on US Judeo-Christian freedoms and liberty. The same people who escaped criminal responsibility for the 911 attacks. Saudi Arabia and Qatar’s terrorism sponsors that direct Obama’s Islamic appeasement strategy and anti-American foreign policy. That is the problem.

Obama’s true loyalties were on display a few days ago.  He does not surprise me. Neither will the predictable gullibility of the ignorant masses who believe his lies.  After all, government paychecks and handouts buy a lot of misguided loyalty from those that conveniently proclaim executive branch criticism as racially motivated.

Obama’s regurgitated shift from combat operations to intelligence and law enforcement based terrorism opposition is another deception.

Obama ended operations in Iraq only to fuel the growth of Islamist insurgency that is tearing Iraq apart. He publicly ordered the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan, but the Taliban continue the fight. Obama wants America to believe that Al Qaeda is no longer a threat, a ”shell of its former self” and Muslim Brotherhood appeasement is now beneficial to US national security interests. Yet America is excoriated as one country after another is being radicalized by a re-packaged Al-Qaeda and it‘s affiliates. Moreover, all over the world, Islam is destroying Christian houses of worship and enslaving or murdering its faithful as its violent Sharia influences spread. Not a peep about this in Obama’s National Security address. No outrage. No condemnation for these unprovoked attacks on non-believers. Just talk about closing Gitmo and setting Islamists free.

For five years, Obama has attacked American traditions and snapped to attention when Islamic influences cry foul. Somehow, Fort Hood, the Boston Marathon bombing and citywide lockdown, Americans murdered on US soil in Libya by Al Qaeda and the global Islamic attacks on Christian faithful seem to escape our myopic President. Treasonous Islamic activism is at an all time high in America. Yet our Justice Department has not only ignored it, but also embraced it.

Obama’s loyalties are no longer debatable.

Make no mistake the threat of Islamic jihad—both violent and stealth—has never been higher in America. The war waged on America by Islam started long before the first World Trade Center bombing. It will continue until our enemies have destroyed our economy and reshaped American law. The only people who could possibly believe different are Islamists themselves or people on their payroll.

Axelrod: ‘Hillary Clinton probably will be the candidate’
Posted by Staff

Hillary Clinton will likely be the Democratic candidate for president in 2016, according to longtime Obama adviser David Axelrod, and only if she passes up a presidential bid will vice president Joe Biden run.
“I think that Hillary Clinton probably will be the candidate. If she doesn’t run, I think Biden will run,” Axelrod told MSNBC. He went on to note that Clinton and Biden share a common view of national security and that he hopes the Democratic primary will give rise to a “healthy debate” about the future of America’s foreign policy.
Though 2016 is a long way off, Clinton is the presumptive favorite among Democrats. Biden told GQ Magazine recently that he may run for president. “I can die a happy man never having been president of the United States of America,” the vice president said. “But it doesn’t mean I won’t run.”
