Historic gains for France’s far-right in local elections (France Moves to the Right)

France’s far-right National Front party (FN) hailed an “exceptional” showing in the first round of the country’s local elections Sunday, after winning historic levels of support in a number of towns and cities.

Early estimates showed FN candidates leading in the eastern town of Forbach and the southern towns of Fréjus, Avignon, Perpignan, Villeneuve-sur-Lot and Beziers, putting the party in pole position for the second round of voting on March 30th.

The news was even better for the FN in the northern town of Henin-Beaumont, where the party’s candidate Steeve Briois took a majority of the vote at 50.26 percent, making him the outright winner and mayor.

Under municipal election rules in France, any candidate who gets more than 50 percent is declared the winner and there is no need for a second round.

Nationwide, the FN scored seven percent of the vote, according to pollster BVA – a high national tally, given that it only fielded candidates in some 600 of France’s total 36,000 municipalities.

FN leader Marine Le Pen said it had an been “exceptional” election for the party.

“The National Front has arrived as a major independent force – a political force both at the national and local level,” Le Pen told TF1 television.

Cruz: ‘The Terrain Has Changed and I Believe We Will Repeal Obamacare’

Calling Obamacare a “Rube Goldberg-like contraption” that has caused more people to lose their health insurance than those who are enrolled in the exchanges, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) revised his previous assessment that once the government subsidies kicked in, it would be “ impossible to repeal Obamacare” because Americans would become “addicted to the sugar.”

“We are seeing the fruits of the battle that so many millions of Americans engaged in last fall to stop Obamacare, and I think the direct result of that fight was to elevate the national debate over the harms that Obamacare has caused,” Cruz said during a Wednesday conference call with reporters and bloggers. “And as a consequence, I think the terrain has changed and I believe we will repeal Obamacare.”

Two heads are better than one, as the old saying goes. That surely means that three heads are even better.

If there’s any truth to that saying, the establishment in Washington and progressives everywhere are likely none too pleased to hear that conservative personalities Glenn Beck, Mark Levin and Sean Hannity are on the same page and joining forces to help the country get back on what they feel is the right path.

After previously allowing themselves to be caught up in a “stupid” competitive feud in talk radio, Beck revealed on his radio show Thursday that he has spoken with Levin and Hannity and they are all ready to start to “move together.”

Forget About A GOP Victory Next Year

GOP Suicide Amnesty SC

It is undeniably fun to watch the polls turn against Barack Obama and the Democrat Party. After so much frustration, we conservatives can take comfort in the suffering of those who voted the Democrats into power; but that really doesn’t help us in the long run. You can’t eat schadenfreude. We have our real life to deal with; and right now, our real life isn’t looking very good.

Those who followed last year’s election know the polls showed that good things were coming until the pollsters finally figured out they were talking to the wrong people. When Rasmussen effectively searched out those who had not been previously surveyed, Mitt Romney’s side collapsed.

It is becoming increasingly likely that the polls and surveys we are seeing today have a similar fundamental flaw; they are all vulnerable to collapse because of the agenda of John Boehner and the rest of the GOPe (including the Chamber of Commerce.)

The advantages held by Republicans today will be distant memories next November. Nevertheless, the vicious uncalled-for attacks on conservatives by John Boehner, Peter King, John McCain, and their like will not be forgotten. They will become rallying cries to fight against the Republican Party next year.

Poll: Most Americans Believe Deportation of Illegal Aliens ‘Not Aggressive Enough’

Kick Them Out: Americans overwhelmingly want “more aggressive” deportation of illegal aliens

Congressional Democrats are demanding that the Obama Administration stop ALL deportations of illegal aliens. “Not one more,” they insist. They want Obama to take the kind of unilateral action he took in 2012, when he ordered all so-called “Dreamers” be free from deportation and arrest.

There’s only one problem: the American People want those illegals DEPORTED — more then ever.

According to a new Rasmussen Report, a majority of Americans do not believe the deportation of illegal immigrants living in the United States is “aggressive enough”.

Democrats want Obama to halt the deportation of illegals until Congress passes a comprehensive immigration reform plan, but voters by a two-to-one margin oppose that idea. Most already think the federal government is not vigilant enough in deporting those who are in this country illegally.

Only 29% of Likely U.S. Voters think the government should stop deporting illegal immigrants until Congress passes an immigration reform plan. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 57% oppose a halt to deportations. Fourteen percent (14%) are undecided.

Sixty percent (60%) believe the U.S. government is not aggressive enough now in deporting illegal immigrants. Fourteen percent (14%) say it is too aggressive, while 16% think the number of deportations is about right.

Woman & Young People Turn On Obama, As His Approval Rating Sinks To New Low (38%)

President Obama’s approval rating has sunk to a new low yet again.

A new Quinnipiac poll released Tuesday shows that Obama’s approval rating is only 38%. That’s down one percent from a poll released last month.

The new low comes as women and young people, who once vehemently supported Obama, turn their backs on the president. Only 44% of women and 41% of young people (aged 18-29) now say they support Obama.

The Quinnipiac poll also revealed that the public has lost trust in Obama. His approval rating on trustworthiness is 44-52 — this is bad news for the president, as it means the majority of the country does not trust him. This likely has a lot to do with the lie he was caught in during the Obamacare debacle (“If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep it. Period.”)

The only positive news for Obama from the Quinnipiac poll is that his approval rating has actually increased among Hispanics, 50% of whom say they support him. That figure is up nearly 10% from last month.

Obama’s presidency is finally unraveling and he has no one to blame but himself.

Washington Times opinion writer George F. Will said, “After Obama’s semi-demi-apology for millions of canceled insurance policies — an intended and predictable consequence of his crusade to liberate Americans from their childish choices of “substandard” policies sold by “bad apple” insurers — Obama is like someone who burns down your house. Then shows up with an empty water bucket. Then lectures you about how defective the house was.”

Perhaps Obama’s collapsing presidency will result in big wins for Republicans in 2014. Only time will tell.

Republican leaders defended a modest budget deal that would maintain government operations through 2015 amid conservative opposition that could scuttle the legislation in the House.

House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, lashed out at conservative advocacy groups that have encouraged GOP lawmakers to oppose a budget framework unveiled last night by Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash.

“They’re using our members and they’re using the American people for their own goals,” an animated Boehner told reporters at the Capitol. “This is ridiculous.”

Obama Stars in The No-Name Law That Sank His Party!

Published on: December 8, 2013

When the Pelosi-Reid-Obama troika triumphantly celebrated cramming through the ACA (Affordable Care Act) over majority sentiment, they crowed that this was the president’s signature achievement and ACA soon took on the name of its creator, ObamaCare. Though not one of them, nor any of the Democrats in the Senate who voted it into law uni-partisanly had read it, they all assured us that we’d grow to really, really like it. Boy, were they wrong.

We’ve paid almost a billion dollars to a Canadian firm whose vice-president is a college buddy of Michelle Obama’s from their black radical days at Princeton to create a webpage to enroll people mandated by this law to do so, Obama having turned down the U.S. firm IBM’s offer to create it for free. It doesn’t work. Moreover, the continuing problems with this webpage — and law — are so substantial and intractable that the White House propaganda machine has stopped referring to it as ObamaCare or even the Affordable Care Act. Everyone now knows that for most people, the plan loaded with mandated coverage to curry favors with privileged tranches of voters like college girls who want free contraceptives and abortion coverage and to permit anyone to sign up after they found out they need costly care, not before, is far more expensive than what they were previously paying for medical insurance. It’s some kind of no-name thing. Either that or, to be an honest descriptor, we could call it the UFA (Unaffordable Care Act). Under any name it’s dramatically swamping the president and his party’s standing among voters.

Obama has shown how a future GOP president can gut Obamacare

I owe Mitt Romney an apology.

During the 2012 Republican presidential primary season, I repeatedly criticized Romney — and personally challenged him during his editorial board meeting with the Washington Examiner — for promising that if elected, on day one of his presidency, he would grant Obamacare waivers to all 50 states.

As I reported, under the text of the law, the ability to offer waivers to states was subject to many restrictions and wouldn’t even be an option until 2017, four years after his hypothetical swearing in.

Though I still believe I was right about what the statute said, as it turns out, I was being old-fashioned by taking the letter of the law so literally.

Having watched President Obama and Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius over the past several months unilaterally alter or outright ignore major portions of the law, I now believe that a future Republican president would have greater latitude to gut Obamacare than I once thought possible.

Limbaugh: Democrats Distract Us with Nuclear Option

RUSH: Folks, I’m not gonna fall for it, and I don’t want you to fall for it, either. This is one of the biggest attempted distractions. Don’t get worked up over this today, it’s not worth it. Dingy Harry’s out there threatening to go do the nuclear option to end the filibuster as we know it. Don’t be fooled for a minute about this. Nothing more than a desperate attempt by the Democrats to distract everybody away from Obamacare and the disaster. That’s all it is. There’s nothing even on the Senate docket, if you will, that will even relate to this right now. They’re just trying to get the Republicans all bent out of shape and distracted about this.

I will allow myself to be distracted by this filibuster ploy for just one second, ’cause I just want to remind you that eight years ago, back in 2005 when the Democrats were in the minority in the Senate, Dingy Harry vehemently opposed changing the filibuster rules one iota. Now, all of a sudden, it’s time to do this, and the Drive-Bys are falling for it. They’ve been all over this like it’s the biggest news story of the day, and it isn’t.

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: It’s outrageous. There’s no question. They did it. Dingy Harry went ahead and they just voted the nuclear option in the Senate. They just changed 250 years’ worth of rules on advise and consent, and now Obama’s gonna get every judge he wants. He’s gonna get them. If they want to add seats to a court — if they want to add five new liberal seats to the DC circuit, for example — they can do it. There’s no stopping ‘em because the Republicans don’t have the votes.

“US Senate Stops Filibusters on Nominations.” That’s the Reuters headline. They have managed to pass a rule ending the filibuster for judges. This is known as the “nuclear option,” and basically what it means is they have erased the need for there ever to be 60 votes before going to a final vote on a judge. It’s now 51 votes. “The Democratic-led US Senate, in a historic rule change, stripped Republicans on Thursday of their ability to block President Barack Obama’s judicial and executive branch nominees.

“On a nearly party-line vote of 52-48, Democrats abruptly changed the Senate’s balance of power by reducing from 60 to 51 the number of votes needed to end procedural roadblocks known as filibusters against presidential nominees…” Folks, this is part and parcel of why the Democrats are so hell-bent on winning the House in 2014. Winning the House would give them total, authoritarian, non-challengeable control over the US government.

Quite literally, there would be no way to stop them. None whatsoever. All of those years that the Republicans held the Senate, all we heard from a whining and crying Harry Reid and Dianne Feinstein was about protecting the rights of the minority. It’s all we heard. The Republicans were a cruel majority that had no intention whatsoever of ever listening to the minority, which represented quite a large swath of the American people.

Now, of course, that’s out the window. When the minority is Republicans, they don’t even exist, and they’re not due any respect, constitutional or otherwise, constitutional or human. So basically what this means with a president like Obama is there’s no stopping him. He can nominate anybody for anything in the judiciary and for a presidential cabinet member, whatever. There’s no way he can be stopped, because all it takes is 51 votes now and the Democrats have more than that. There’s no way.

That’s 250 years of Senate rules out the window, ’cause the Democrats have made it plain they’re not interested in democracy. That really is what this means. They’re not interested in democracy at all. They want total statist authoritarianism — and, frankly, I’m being kind with that terminology. But I’m a little… Well, I’m not conflicted. What’s the word? Mitch McConnell was just on TV acting surprised and outraged. Our guys always act surprised, and that’s what I don’t get.

Why do they not know who they’re up against, after all of this time, why do they not come to grips with what they’re up against and lay some groundwork for fighting it and opposing it in the public arena? They don’t have the votes to win it in the Senate. Why not take the news to the American people and let them know what’s going on? No, after the fact. They always act shocked and outraged, surprised that Harry Reid would conduct such a power grab.

Why are they surprised?

This is what I don’t get.

PBS Dem Pundit Mark Shields: If Obamacare Fails, ‘This Is The End…of Liberal Government’

Barack Obama being clear that his team messed up Obamacare made it hard for liberal PBS NewsHour pundit Mark Shields to try Democrat Happy Talk.

Instead, Shields joined the liberal gloomfest: “If this goes down, if the Obama — if health care, the Affordable Care Act is deemed a failure, this is the end — I really mean it — of liberal government.” He even acknowledged Obama lied about Keeping Your Plan:

MARK SHIELDS: That is — wasn’t a true statement. And you’re driven to one of two conclusions. Either the president was almost — almost negligently uncurious in not asking about what the answer was, or he made the choice to trade his considerable reputation and record of integrity for short-term political gain. That’s why they had to come and that’s why there was such consternation in the ranks.

JUDY WOODRUFF: How do you explain it, David, what happened, with the president acknowledging yesterday that he wasn’t on top of it?

DAVID BROOKS: Yes, I think it is politics. They knew that they — getting this thing passed — we were there — it was hard. And so they were pulling out every political stop in the book. And a lot of those political stops have made it harder now. The first early one was, they were really late in issuing the regulations because they didn’t want them to come out during the campaign so Romney could attack them.

As a result, the whole implementation got pushed back, and that’s part of the reason the Web site is such a mess. And then they made this political calculation. Then they made the — that they weren’t going to tell you there will be losers here. And they made the political calculation there would be no deficit effects. They made a whole series of political calculations.

thumbNY Anti-Gun Dem Senator Gillibrand: We All Knew’ Obama Was Lying About Obamacare (Video)

Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) admitted Sunday to knowing the promises President Obama made about his signature health care plan were false. On ABC’s This Week, fill-in host Martha Raddatz asked Gillibrand where she felt misled by Obama, considering the fact that the President said that Americans who wanted to keep their health care plans could do so. Gillibrand answered:

He should’ve just been more specific. Because the point is, if you’re being offered a terrible health care plan, that the minute you get sick you’re going to have to go into bankruptcy, those plans should never be offered.

Following up on an obvious non-answer, Raddatz asked again about being misled.

Krauthammer: Why liberals are panicked about Obamacare

Published on: November 15, 2013

“Even if it takes a change to the law, the president should honor the commitment the federal government made to those people and let them keep what they got.”

— Bill Clinton, Nov. 12

So the former president asserts that the current president continues to dishonor his “you like your plan, you can keep your plan” pledge. And calls for the Affordable Care Act to be changed, despite furious White House resistance to the very idea.

Coming from the dean of the Democratic Party, this one line marked the breaching of the dam. It legitimized the brewing rebellion of panicked Democrats against Obamacare. Within hours, that rebellion went loudly public. By Thursday, President Obama had been forced into a rear-guard holding action, asking insurers to grant a one-year extension of current plans.

The damage to the Obama presidency, however, is already done. His approval rating has fallen to 39 percent, his lowest ever. And, for the first time, a majority considers him untrustworthy. That bond is not easily repaired.

At stake, however, is more than the fate of one presidency or of the current Democratic majority in the Senate. At stake is the new, more ambitious, social-democratic brand of American liberalism introduced by Obama, of which Obamacare is both symbol and concrete embodiment.

RELATED: The many scandals the White House says Obama didn’t know about

Precisely when the GOP was returning to a more constitutionalist conservatism committed to reforming, restructuring and reining in the welfare state (see, for example, the Paul Ryan Medicare reform passed by House Republicans with near-unanimity), Obama offered a transformational liberalism designed to expand the role of government, enlarge the welfare state and create yet more new entitlements (see, for example, his call for universal preschool in his most recent State of the Union address).

The centerpiece of this vision is, of course, Obamacare, the most sweeping social reform in the past half-century, affecting one-sixth of the economy and directly touching the most vital area of life of every citizen.

As the only socially transformational legislation in modern American history to be enacted on a straight party-line vote, Obamacare is wholly owned by the Democrats. Its unraveling would catastrophically undermine their underlying ideology of ever-expansive central government providing cradle-to-grave care for an ever-grateful citizenry.

For four years, this debate has been theoretical. Now it’s real. And for Democrats, it’s a disaster.

Obamacre Fix: Making Things WORSE (Obama is Screwin’ the Pooch!)

Published on: November 15, 2013

Facing growing outrage from Americans, President Barack Obama reversed course Thursday and offered to let insurance companies sell existing plans even if they don’t meet the minimum standards set by his new problem-fraught health care law.

But Obama’s much-delayed attempt to make good on his promise that Americans could keep their insurance plans if they liked them faces strong opposition from insurance companies, which warn that rates might spike, and it risks undermining the basic premise of his law, which requires quality, affordable insurance.

“We fumbled the rollout on this health care law,” a contrite Obama said in an hourlong news conference Thursday at the White House. “We should have done a better job getting that right on day one – not on day 28 or on day 40.”

The president flatly took responsibility for the slew of problems that have bedeviled his signature domestic achievement, including an error-filled website, and said he’d restore Americans’ confidence in him by fixing HealthCare.gov this month and making good on his promise to allow Americans to keep their plans. “We’re just gonna keep on chipping away at this,” he said.

The debacle threatens to swamp Obama’s entire second-term agenda, raising questions about his competency and credibility. Polls released this week show the president’s job-approval rating at a historic low and a majority of voters saying, for the first time, that he isn’t trustworthy.
