Even NYT Notes That Voter ID Laws DO NOT ‘Suppress’ Minority Voters

November 28, 2014 | Filed Under Constitution, Crime, Democrats/Leftists, Ethics, GOP, Government, Government Corruption, Journalism, Liberals, Media Bias, President, Progressives, The New York Times, Vote Fraud, Voter ID, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

The left is all balled up in knots over the false claim that voter ID laws are meant specifically to “suppress” the vote of minorities and to swing elections to the GOP. This is a lie. And even The New York Times essentially agrees that this is a lie.

Firstly, the point of voter ID laws is not to “suppress” anything other than illegal votes. If a white guy is not properly registered and goes to the polling place without a valid ID, he shouldn’t vote any more than an African American or an Hispanic.

Now, the argument the loony left makes to “prove” that voter ID laws affect only minorities is that, according to these loons, liberal minorities are too stupid to figure out how to get an approved ID so that they can vote and will therefore be denied the right to vote.

They claim that they have “studies” that prove that many states have hundreds of thousands of minorities who lack the proper ID and so are being disenfranchised by voter ID laws.

But now even Nate Cohn from The New York Times proves that this claim is bunkum.

Obama Just Gave Employers a $3,000 Incentive to Hire Illegals Over Real Americans

The United States has been suffering through the worst jobs climate in recent memory with millions of Americans unable to find work and just giving up looking. Now, things are going to get worse because with his massive, unconstitutional amnesty, Obama just gave employers a big incentive to hire illegals instead of real Americans.

According to The Washington Times, Obama’s illicit amnesty will hand employers a $3,000 incentive to hire illegals over American citizens.

How did the paper figure this? It’s because of Obamacare, naturally.

You Built This, Mr. President, Ferguson is all That is Wrong With Democrats

-By Warner Todd Huston

The pointless and illicit rioting in Ferguson, Missouri is a perfect example of all that is wrong with the Democrat Party, the unavoidable end game of that party’s actions, and proof of the illegitimacy of everything Democrats do to win elections.

Democrats win elections by lying to blacks and telling them that they are still living in the 1930s where it concerns race relations in America. The Democrat Party lies to blacks telling them Jim Crow is still in force, that blacks have made no progress, that they are oppressed every day and all their personal failures are the fault of others–namely “those white devils.”

Democrats then promise to give blacks freebies to make amends for the purported conditions under which they are supposed to suffer in order to get their vote.

And it works, too. Blacks vote in the 90 percent range for Democrats.

Dana Perino Wrongly Claims Obama ‘Has The Prosecutorial Discretion’ To Issue His Amnesty

-By Warner Todd Huston

One of the claims that the left is erroneously using to justify Obama’s new amnesty policy is that he has the “prosecutorial discretion” to do what he is doing and on Thursday Fox News’ Dana Perino agreed with the left that Obama does, indeed, have that power.

Perino appeared on the November 20 edition of Fox News’ The Five where she insisted that Obama does have the power to issue his amnesty. But she also noted that it was “strange” that the first major thing that Obama did after the elections was to “poison the well” with his amnesty policy even after he claimed that the midterms meant that voters want Democrats and Republicans to work together.

Perino went on to claim that Obama has neatly boxed in his Republican opponents because they will not be able to quickly settle the constitutional legality of Obama’s order nor will they be able to easily tell five million suddenly legal immigrants that they actually aren’t legal.

Obama Shocked by Suggestion Another Prez Might Selectively Enforce Tax Law

A recent encounter that Obama had with ABC so entirely illustrates his arrogance that it can only make you laugh. George Stephanopoulos asked Obama what would stop a future president from following his example of selectively enforcing laws by refusing to collect certain taxes. Obama was shocked, SHOCKED, I tell you, at the suggestion and told Stephanopoulos that it would be “wrong” of a president to decide not to enforce tax law.

Here was the exchange with Obama filibustering in his opening monologue:

Why Inner City Blacks See Racism Everywhere and Think We Are Still in Slave Days and Whites Don’t

-By Warner Todd Huston

Inner city blacks have a skewed and untrue view of what America “is” today and it is because they live in all black neighborhoods. This often self-imposed isolation is also why white people don’t understand why blacks don’t see the progress that blacks have made in this country.

There is a myth of segregated neighborhoods in this country that lives strong, especially in the minds of blacks. The myth is that whites live only among whites and blacks among blacks. The myth is also part of the assumption that whites are racists who will neither let blacks live near them, nor will move to areas where blacks live thereby keeping blacks down.

This is part of the victim mentality that blacks have built up among themselves to explain why inner city neighborhoods are blighted. It’s always someone else’s fault.

But according to an article by Dan Keating in The Washington Post studies have shown that these days all white neighborhoods have plummeted to near non-existence in American cities.

Where is Hillary on Obama’s Abuse of Power? The Five Times She Said Presidents Need Limits

-By Warner Todd Huston

Hillary Clinton has been pretty silent over Obama’s amnesty. She has not chastised this president for his abuse of power. But this might seem to be inconsistent with her past comments because there have been at least five times when she said that our presidents need to be reigned in and have their powers limited.

Clinton railed against an overly powerful executive at least five times in the recent past. In 2006, and twice each in 2007 and 2008 Hillary warned that the US needs to restore its system of checks and balances, a system lost to an over active Chief Executive.

In 2006, for instance, Hillary attacked George W. Bush claiming that he was making “the most extraordinary claims of executive power that we’ve seen in the nation’s history.” At that time Hillary praised our constitutional democracy and urged the nation to force Bush to back off and work better with Congress.

Only months later in 2007, Clinton was again railing against the President and saying that if she were elected to the White House she would roll back Bush’s use of Executive Orders. “I think you have to restore the checks and balances and the separation of powers, which means reining in the presidency,” Clinton said to The Boston Globe.

To Aid Obama, Old Media Establishment Took a Pass on Gruber Videos

The man who was trying to shop the Gruber videos to the media was rebuffed by the Old Media Establishment repeatedly because they had no interest in highlighting the fact that Obama and his Obamacare cohorts were lying to the American people about the President’s signature healthcare law.

Howard Kurtz tracked down the man who was trying to get the media to notice the string of videos showing Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber telling audiences that the American voters are “stupid” and saying that the administration lied repeatedly about what was in Obamacare and how it would work all in a desperate attempt to get the President’s take over of our national healthcare system passed into law.

Kurtz tracked down the man, Rich Weinstein, and found a man who doesn’t himself want to become the story. In fact, he wouldn’t even supply Kurtz with a photo of himself.

Another Government Making it Harder for Citizens to Get Public Records

Transparency, shmansparency. Once again we see a government doing its level best to keep you, the people, from being able to find out what it is that government is doing to you. This time it is in failing Illinois where lawmakers are trying to make it much, much harder to fulfill a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.

Yes, your representatives in the Illinois legislature–Republican and Democrat alike–don’t want you to be able to find out what they are doing in Springfield. Imagine that.

The bill (HB 3796) would make it extremely costly to file for an FOI request allowing the government to charge up to $100 per request and would also give the government even more time to fulfill requests for information.

After the murder of American hostage and aide worker Peter Kassig by members of the Islamist terror group ISIS, Obama claimed that Christians were more responsible for terrorism than Muslims are.

After he returned from his trip to Asia, Obama deigned to comment on the murder of the aide worker by claiming that the actions of ISIS “represent no faith.”

“ISIL’s actions represent no faith, least of all the Muslim faith which Abdul-Rahman adopted as his own,” Obama claimed.

Obama also claimed that the act was one of “pure evil.”

But my friend, Chicago’s Joe Walsh, noted on Monday evening, this means that Obama just said that Christians, Jews, Hindus, even Mormons are more responsible for terror than Muslims.

Before you get incredulous just look at what he wrote.

Jim Webb: The Democrat Who Could Beat Hillary From The Right

-By Warner Todd Huston

Hillary Clinton is likely running for president. This is probably the worst kept secret in politics. But how is she running? That is the big question. Will she run as the far left candidate, to the middle, even toward the right side of the Democrat coalition? What ever side she angles for, there is one candidate, former Virginia Senator Jim Webb, who, if he runs, would surely run to Hilary’s right and he could beat her doing it.

Webb was an unknown quantity when he first ran for the U.S. Senate in Virginia in 2006. In fact, he was so unknown in politics that no one knew which party banner he would pick up for his then rumored run for Senate.

Many thought it was a lock that he’d pick the Republican Party. After all, he was a hawkish member of the Reagan administration serving as the Gipper’s Secretary of the Navy from 1987 to 1988 and before that was Reagan’s Assistant Secretary of Defense for Reserve Affairs from ’84 to ’87. Further he was the author of a book that extolled the martial virtues of the Scots-Irish in the Old Confederacy. Before all that he was a Marine in Vietnam where he earned multiple combat awards.

However, Webb shocked everyone by picking the Democrat Party to represent in his 2006 run for the Senate. It seems fairly obvious he did so more because he saw that as a path to victory than as a strictly ideological choice. After all, the Democrats were resurgent at the time and the Party was advancing all across the country. Only two years later Barack Obama would ride a wave of Democrat success right into the White House.

Jezebel Employees Charge Racism After White Outsider Picked as New Editor Over African American Insider

With the announcement that Emma Carmichael is joining Gawker-owned, Celebrity Gossip site Jezebel.com as editor-in-chief, employees are a bit curious why an outsider was picked over their favored long-time deputy editor for the job?

A piece by Capital’s Peter Sterne notes that long-time deputy editor Dodai Stewart was passed over for editor-in-chief even though Jezebel employees really like her and had hoped she would get the job.

Stewart, an African American, was hired in the early days of the site by founding editor Anna Holmes. But her role has grown, especially in the past year since now former editor-in-chief Jessica Cohen had been flying back and forth between her home in Chicago and Gawker Media’s New York offices.

Ill. Sen. Dave Syverson is an Example of Why the Ill. GOP is a Miserable Failure

-By Warner Todd Huston

Only days after the 2014 election that gave Illinois a new business-minded, tax-cutting Republican as its new Governor, Illinois State Senator and nominal Republican Dave Syverson gave us all a perfect example of why the Illinois GOP is such a crashing failure when he chirped up that he’d love to make the “temporary” state income tax hike permanent, BEFORE the new Governor even gets a chance to take office.

The 2014 midterm elections were a sharp rebuke to a nation of big spending, big government Democrats that have destroyed state budgets, the American healthcare industry, and engorged government in every corner of the nation. This wave election even affected deep blue Illinois as an insurgent first-time Republican candidate beat a thoroughly entrenched Democrat incumbent.

One of the reasons that new Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner beat Democrat Pat Quinn is because Rauner ran on his outsider status, his business acumen, and his promises to cut taxes and get the state back from the brink of collapse. Rauner promised to change the absolute fact that Illinois is the worst state in the country in every single measure of what makes a successful state.

After Six Years Obama Adviser Valerie Jarrett Being Targeted By Media

After the shellacking that President Obama received at the hands of voters in the midterm elections, his chief advisor, Valerie Jarrett is finally in the hot seat. Over the weekend, two articles attacked her as all that is wrong with the White House with one piece slamming her the “Obama whisperer” and another one flat out advising Obama to fire her.

Jarrett has been with the Obamas since their beginning in Chicago and has become the President’s spokesperson, closest adviser, and, some say, the real decision-maker in the White House.

This ultimate insider has been criticized by conservatives for years, but now it seems even liberals have about had enough of her.

For years many have been afraid to cross her–and for good reason–but with this political drubbing, it looks like at least a few in the media have finally decided to speak up in opposition to Jarrett’s iron fisted rule behind the scenes.

In a revisited interview, the architect of Obamacare is seen saying that the lack of transparency in the President’s healthcare law is a feature not a problem. After all, if you rubes could figure it out, you’d really understand what an un-American mess Obamacare is. Obamacare is a total mess, a Gordian Knot that cannot be cut through by mortal men. And it was made that way on purpose.

The interview in question was of Romneycare and Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber from October of last year. In the video taped interview, Gruber is seen noting that the lack of transparency in Obamacare is really a good thing.

Some State Democrats Abandoning Party, Switching to Republican

Thus far at least four Democrats have already jumped the sinking Democrat ship to become Republicans and in one case it gave the GOP a majority control of a state senate since the 1930s.

The first to jump parties was West Virginia State Senator Daniel Hall. The Wyoming County Senator announced the day after the midterm elections that he was switching his party affiliation from Democrat to Republican because, he said, most of his constituents are Republican and he felt he wasn’t serving their interests as a Democrat.

The WV senate was split 17-17 and Hall’s jump gave the WV GOP control of the state senate for the first time since the 1930s.

Despite Rabble-Rousers Urging Ferguson Citizens to Vote, Few Bothered

After months of rioting, one of the main themes that many left-wing rabble-rousers have been pushing on residents of Ferguson is to register to vote so that they can “change” their local government. But despite all the rhetoric, few Ferguson residents bothered to vote last Tuesday.

A big criticism of Ferguson, Missouri’s government is that there are “too many white people” in it. Activists have maintained that only a slate full of black candidates can properly govern the largely black population of the city. So, to throw out the few whites on the council, activists have urged citizens to register to vote and usher in a utopian black government.

But despite all the caterwauling of activists, it appears that Ferguson residents still weren’t motivated very much to go register and vote.

Obama’s Secretary of Education, Chicago operative Arne Duncan, is hoping to make taxpayer funded, universal pre-school a “civil right.”

During comments made in Los Angeles at the LA Universal Preschool forum on Oct. 21, Chicago hack Arne Duncan said that universal pre-school was a “social movement” that was “just like” the civil rights movement.

“At the end of the day for me this is really a social movement,” Duncan said of taxpayer-funded pre-school.

“If you look at social movements, we all celebrate what happened in the 1960’s. The civil rights movement was extraordinarily powerful, life transforming, earth shattering. But the question I have is, why didn’t the civil rights movement happen in the 50’s or the 40’s or 30’s or 20’s?” he said.

If you are a US Senator that supported Obamacare and/or one who supported the vaunted “Gang of Eight” senators who were seeking immigration compromise you are preparing for a long retirement back home in most cases because voters threw you out on your ear.

First of all, you’ll recall that back in 2013 a group of eight US Senators got together supposedly to buck the gridlock and come to a compromise on immigration. The media loved these guys and hailed them as all that is good about Washington.

Even in Blue Illinois the GOP Wave of 2014 Had an Impact, But The State is STILL A Major Failure

The Republicans bumped up their gains in the Senate and the House of Representatives and also gained in Governor’s mansions across the nation and even deep, deep blue Illinois was affected by this GOP wave. But even with these few bright spots, Illinois is the worst state in the union on every level.

But, yes, last night there were some bright spots. First of all, two Democrats lost their seats in the House of Representatives.

In the 10th District over in Lake County, Robert Dold re-took the seat he lost in 2012 when Democrat Brad Schneider knocked him out. Schneider rode Obama’s coat tails into the House in the big 2012 Democrat sweep.

Dold endured a vicious campaign full of lies launched by Schneider and the Democrat Congressional Campaign Committee. The Democrats claimed Dold was a “Tea Party” extremist and a major anti-abortion activist and neither are true.

But the shocker was the 12th District race where State Rep, Mike Bost just slammed Democrat incumbent Bill Enyart by a wide margin. I don’t think anyone had this major upset on their radar here in Illinois. Enyart only got one term and was ushered into office in 2012 along with the 10th District’s Schneider.

But the biggest upset is the race for Governor in the Land of Lincoln.

An interesting new TV ad campaign that targets the left-wing media instead of just a political party or candidate has begun in North Carolina as Election Day bears down upon the nation.

The TV spot is ostensibly an ad asking voters to defeat Democrat incumbent Senator Kay Hagan, but the main message is anti-Old media as opposed to strictly anti-Kay Hagan.

A similar ad is running in New Mexico and both are sponsored by a PAC named the Conservatism War Chest. The PAC’s spokesman, Mike Flynn, notes that conservatives can’t win until the media is defeated. (Disclosure: I’ve known Mike for years and have worked with him at Bretbart.com. But I’ve never discussed this effort with him.)

“Conservatives can never gain final victory until they confront the problem of news organizations who are the real opposition party in America,” Flynn said. “This content-heavy spot puts before the public case studies that establish these organizations as partisan not journalistic organizations that are dedicated to activism, not the fearless pursuit of the truth.”

Here is how the PAC explains its efforts:

UNPRECEDENTED: Obama Orders Insurance Industry to Withhold New Prices Until AFTER Midterm Elections

-By Warner Todd Huston

Barack Obama is again playing political games with our health insurance industry and has turned in another underhanded move against it by forcing insurance carriers, brokers and agents to withhold their 2015 prices until after the 2014 midterm elections are over all so that the news of higher prices won’t hurt Democrats on Election Day.

This means that customers looking to get new insurance or those wishing to scout new policies to see if they can get a better deal are not able to shop for insurance.

Before we get into that, though, millions of new cancellations will be hitting on January 1, 2015. Much of this news has gone under the radar as Democrats and their lapdog media are keeping this as quiet as possible.

There is also something different with these cancellations, something that has never happened before in the healthcare insurance industry. Past practice has always been that the next year’s new rates are released 60 days before the first day of the next year. But Obama has mandated that companies hold back on that normal practice so that he can shield Democrats at the polls.

Here is how insurance agent C. Steven Tucker explained it this weekend:

This year, for the first time in 20 years I can not even quote a replacement product because Barack Obama has issued a GAG ORDER to the health insurance industry instructing them not to disclose their January 2015 health insurance rates until after the mid-term elections. This is unprecedented. Normally health insurance premiums are released for public viewing 60 days before the January 1st effective date. Where are the reports on these cancellations and the gag order from NBC, ABC, CBS and CNN? The only news organization that I am aware of that has reported on any of this is the Fox News channel. I can guarantee you one thing, not one of my clients who received a cancellation notice is voting Democrat on Tuesday.

This is once again proof that healthcare is not about health for this most corrupt president in American history. It is politics all the way through for this man.

Your health doesn’t matter to Barack Obama. He cares only about what political benefit he can get from taking over our healthcare industry.

It is also proof that the health of Americans does not interest the news media, either. All they care about is how they can help Democrats.

But this is just a small example of what happens when you allow government to take over an industry like this. It stops being about what ever the industry is supposed to be about and becomes a mere political tool.

Finally, let us point out something else that is glaringly obvious. The GOP is in on this game. After all, you haven’t heard a word about this from any GOP candidate have you? They are clearly running interference for Obama on this by staying silent.

Obamacare Funds Being Used to Push Amnesty for Illegals

Obamacare was supposed to be about getting healthcare for those Americans–I emphasize, Americans–who fell through the system and were un-insured. But, like all government programs, it has failed to do what it set out to do. Worse, now we find healthcare dollars being used to push amnesty for illegals.

Rep. Lamar Smith (R-TX) recently demanded to know why Obamacare money is going to a campaign to push amnesty. Smith wrote a letter to House Appropriations Chair Harold Rogers (R-KY) and demanded that the program be defunded.

Smith points to a $15 million grant hidden in Obamacare’s Prevention and Public Health Fund given to the California Endowment, a purported healthcare agency in the Golden State.

At one point, Kerry noted that the US wanted a less sectarian government in Iraq in order to help defeat ISIS. But this goal has been hard to achieve because of the USA itself.

Hillary Clinton and Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren, both rumored to be in the hunt for the 2016 Democrat nomination for President, appeared at the same event last week prompting Clinton to praise Warren as a “passionate champion for working people.”

As one of the nation’s most well known Democrat women, Hillary Clinton is certainly expected to throw her hat in the ring for the 2016 Democrat nomination for President. But there is another up-and-coming woman of the (far, far) left who is dallying with the same decision. Senator Elizabeth Warren has slowly begun to soften her stance against running going from a solid “no” to a “we’ll see what happens.”

In April, Warren had told ABC that she was absolutely not running for president. But by October her stance had softened considerably.

In a recent interview with People magazine, Warren said that she has learned not to “be so sure what lies ahead.” This is quite a difference from her previous straight out statement of “I’m not running for president.”

Cosmopolitan magazine has been heavily pushing Obama’s agenda during this year’s election but the magazine isn’t satisfied with mere editorials and advertisements. Instead, the fashion magazine is going the extra mile by sponsoring a series of party busses featuring shirtless male models, free gifts, and snacks all aimed at carting college students to the polls next month.

N.C. State University’s Technician, the school’s campus newspaper, reported that the fashion magazine will sponsor the party bus after the associate director of publicity and communications for Student Government entered to win the magazine’s #CosmoVotes election bus contest.

Congress Mulling Mandatory Isolation for Returning Ebola Doctors

After a doctor returning from treating patients in West Africa was diagnosed with the deadly Ebola virus, some in Congress are proposing that any healthcare worker returning from overseas after treating Ebola patients must be placed in isolation to make sure they are free of the disease.

Doctor Craig Spencer was diagnosed with Ebola upon returning to the US after taking care of Ebola patients in Guinea but when he first came home he was not exhibiting any symptoms. But only days after his return Spencer checked into Bellevue Hospital in New York and in short order was diagnosed with the virus.

The doctor is now in isolation and being treated for Ebola.

Before he began showing symptoms, Dr. Spencer was carrying on his life as normal, riding city mass transit, eating out, even going bowling. This is something that has alarmed lawmakers sparking a motion to make isolation mandatory.

IRS Impounds Bank Accounts With No Warrant, No Cause, No Crime And It’s Legal!

In Obama’s America all the IRS needs to take all your money, freeze your accounts, and arrest you is their opinion that your assets might be suspicious. No warrants are needed, no proof of any actual crime is required. All the IRS needs is its say so and your life can be turned upside down.

A story in The New York Times reports on how the abusive, overly powerful IRS destroys lives with impunity. One woman who runs a small restaurant had all her assets stolen by the IRS and never returned even though she has never been charged with any violations of the tax code or breaking any laws.

And this woman will not likely get her money back because the forfeitures are not held until the government finally figures out if there is any guilt involved, either. No, that money is immediately doled out to the various law enforcement agencies involved in the theft and is immediately spent.

Ebola Ranks in the Top Ten Most Engrossing Stories Since 2010

October 26, 2014 | Filed Under Africa, Barack Obama, Democrats/Leftists, Ebola, Ethics, Government, Government Corruption, Health, Journalism, Media Bias, President, Progressives, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

The Ebola story has broken into the top ten most watched stories in America since 2010, a poll shows. And the story is not yet ended, so it may climb higher still.

According to a new Pew Research Poll, 49 percent of Americans are following the Ebola story “very closely.” This was, according to the pollsters, “a far greater share than interest in news about ISIS airstrikes (29%), U.S. economic news (26%) and the upcoming congressional elections (16%).”

Americans are clearly worried over Obama’s failed response to the Ebola health crisis.
