Delivered my papers amid swirling snowflakes this morning. It’s 25 degrees. My sister lives in Phoenix. She has a habit of calling at Christmas to send her best wishes. Then she brags that it’s 80,sunny,her DH has the grill going and they just got out of their pool. I hate her.

    Details leak of Obama’s illegal illegal immigrant plan

    The draft plan, first reported by Fox News, was designed by the Department of Homeland Security and shown to Obama before his departure for Asia. There, he is enjoying several rounds of banquets, toasts and publication of eminently forgettable multilateral summit statements.

    Such executive action by the ex-state senator is virtually certain to ignite a political firestorm on Capitol Hill where both parties are still adjusting to the new realities of Republicans controlling both chambers come January.

    Lets hope they can somehow stop this but stompy-feet plans to spend the next 26 months doing exactly as he pleases.

    Study: 42 Percent of New Medicaid Recipients in the Last Two Years Were Immigrants
    Because immigrants are more likely to have low incomes or lack insurance from their jobs, they’re much more likely to be eligible for the existing Medicaid program — and Obamacare’s expansion of it, which began this year.
    Illegal immigrants are ineligible for Medicaid currently and are technically ineligible for the Medicaid expansion or any other direct Obamacare benefits, but fraud in the program is rarely investigated and recipient-level eligibility is rarely investigated.

    Biden Bashes Middle Class “It Means You’re Not Sophisticated”
    Bumbling Joe Biden inserted his foot in his mouth again on Wednesday.
    The Vice President bashed the middle class at the American Association of Port Authorities convention in Houston.

    “And, when I say the middle class, the first time I said it, and I referred to myself as ‘Middle Class Joe’, you know in Washington that’s not meant as a complement. It means you’re not sophisticated.”

    Now we know what they really think of the middle class.
    Does that mean that an ignorant,country-ass redneck like me is middle class now? I ain’t sophistimicated or nuthin’.

    Walker for President? WI Gov’s Rise Has Similarities to Reagan
    The “elephant in the room,” now that Scott Walker has won a remarkable third election as governor of Wisconsin in only four years, is the presidential election in 2016. Well before the 2014 midterms, speculation was rife about Walker’s possible presidential ambitions, and his several trips to neighboring Iowa did nothing to quell it. It is widely assumed that Walker’s possible presidential ambitions are a major reason the national Democratic Party and its various third-party interest groups expended enormous resources in the unsuccessful attempts to defeat him.

    Russia’s Bombers To Conduct Regular Patrols Around Gulf Of Mexico Region…

    MOSCOW – In a show of military muscle amid tensions with the West, Russia will send long-range strategic bombers on regular patrol missions across the globe, from the Arctic Ocean to the Gulf of Mexico, a top official said Wednesday.

    The announcement by Russian Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu came as NATO’s chief accused Russia of sending fresh troops and tanks into eastern Ukraine.

    Does anybody think for a city minute that if W. were still president Putin would have the balls to send bombers over the Gulf of Mexico?I don’t either.

    Senator Angus King, Fox News Hosts Get Into Testy Exchange Over Obamacare Architect Video
    Angus King: That video of Obamacare architect Jon Gruber saying the ‘stupidity of the American people’ was necessary to pass the Affordable Care Act is no biggie, nothing to see here.

    Fox News hosts Kimberly Guilfoyle and Brian Kilmeade fire back at the Senator and it erupts into heated exchange.
    This dweeb calls himself an “independent.”…yeah,right.

      I was going to remark on the paternalistic attitude until I remembered that I didn’t lie to my kids ever, not even when they were toddlers with one syllable vocabularies. I wonder how many of these twerps had parents who did lie to them, A LOT.

    GOP used car salesman tops senior W.Va. senator

    This points up just how badly the democrats took it in the shortribs.
    CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — Mark Maynard owns a used car lot, runs a towing business and spends his spare time on a professional drag racing pit crew. And despite not raising a dime for his Republican campaign and agreeing with his Democratic opponent on almost all the issues, he defeated West Virginia’s longest-sitting state senator.
    Before this election, Republicans only once fielded a candidate against Chafin in southern West Virginia, a 1990 landslide victory for the senator.

    Democrats maintain huge registration edges statewide, and in each of Senate District 6’s four counties. McDowell and Mingo went for Chafin, but Mercer and Wayne, Maynard’s home county, voted for the Republican. He eked out a win by less than 2 percentage points.

    Why Jim Webb poses the biggest threat to a Hillary Clinton presidency

    I can not stand Jim Webb. When he was a senator, he’d go on local t.v. and bash some of the bills and programs from his Dem colleagues and Obama only to vote for them. He’s a slimeball. Hubby would vote for him because he says that Webb’s a straight shooter when it comes to the military. What?!!!…… Anyway, Hubby’s had to work with him on some military contracts and he just thinks the world of him. Oh puulease…


    • Pistol Pete

      I remember when W invited him to the White House and asked him how his son in the military was,he said:’that’s between me and him!’ Nothing like being disrespectful to someone who invited you to his home.I haven’t liked him ever since.


    • Everybody’s still knicker-twisted about Hillary. I’m still convinced she’s just a decoy. She’s popular with a few zombies, but deeply hated by almost half the country. But good piece on Webb, and I agree with you.

    Pelosi to Boehner: Treat us ‘fairly’ on seats

    “In the spirit of bipartisan cooperation, I am writing to ask the Democratic members be treated fairly in regards to membership on standing committees,” Pelosi wrote. “Specifically, we are asking that the minority party receive a similar number of committee slots….as we provided to the Republican minority in the 111th Congress.”

    What is this alleged ‘bipartisan cooperation’ she speaks of?Oh,thats just when they’re in the minority.A little different when the shoe is on the other foot.
    Grannyism:’thats a horse of a different color.’

    UPDATE: Senate Dems Flip-Flop on Keystone, Agree to Tuesday Vote in Bid to Save Last Senate Seat

    They think this will save that insufferable shrew.
    While many Democrats support the pipeline, Democratic leaders have viewed it as a Republican priority that the Obama administration opposes. For that reason, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) had blocked Senate consideration of Landrieu’s bill to approve the pipeline.

    But that calculation changed last week in light of the need for a Landrieu runoff. Republicans crushed Democrats in the midterm elections, and will occupy 53 seats next year — 54 if they win Landrieu’s seat.

    Democrats, You Did it to Yourselves
    No poll in America ever placed anything near a majority of Americans in favor of the ACA. Some showed as many as 70% against. Americans never wanted this law, never were in favor of it, pleaded with their representatives not to pass it. Efforts to stop it caused what many thought impossible to happen — a Senatorial seat vacated by a Massachusetts Kennedy being won by a Republican. Yet our pleas fell upon deaf ears. They fell upon the ears of people more concerned with remaking America than with performing the will of those whom they represent. Big mistake.

    Democrats’ Loss is Not a Win For Hillary Clinton

    You can always tell you’re being spun if the opposite facts would yield the same result. Does anyone doubt that if the Democrats Clinton vigorously campaigned for had held on to the Senate, the same people would be telling the New York Times that the election results were a boon for Clinton? If the midterm results are scaring away potential left-wing insurgents, why is Clinton Inc. expediting its schedule? Shouldn’t the lack of a challenger make it easier for Clinton to lay low for a while longer?

    Not according to this alleged consensus among her brain trust.

        As opposed to Obama,who successfully hid his shadowy past,everybody knows about the Butcher of Benghazi going all the way back to Arkansas.
        She needs to be punded about how she and Barry stood in front of four flag-draped coffins and blatantly lied about the attack being a protest to a video when they knew different.

    Media blackout shields ObamaCare architect who bet on public stupidity
    I’ve been trying to figure out why the mainstream media has all but decided to ignore one of ObamaCare’s chief architects saying the administration played on the public’s stupidity in passing the law.

    After all, the press usually loves when hidden video surfaces, as it did this week with MIT professor Jonathan Gruber, and we get unvarnished comments showing what someone really and truly believes.
    Even MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski, who makes no secret of being a liberal, admitted yesterday that “had it been a Republican, the media would have been exploding.”

    Mooch Scores More Than $70K Worth Of Free Jewelry From Queen Of Brunei…

    The State Department reported Tuesday that the queen of Brunei gave Mrs. Obama jewelry worth $71,468 in 2013. The flower-shaped white gold earrings, ring and necklace were studded with yellow sapphires and diamonds, according to the department’s annual accounting of gifts published in the Federal Register.
    The Queen of Brunei probably thought of it as giving a few baubles to a low-born street beggar who got lucky.
