Syrians: NBC's Chuck Todd Attacks Donald Trump

Sunday morning means it is time to watch Chuck Todd embarrass himself on Meet The Press.  Saying Chuck is biased and a hack is an understatement and today was no exception.  NBC, the same network that was caught "selectively editing" George Zimmerman's 911 call and was the home of the pathological liar Brian Williams as their nightly news anchor, still thinks the public views their news organization as credible. That brings us to the Trump interview this morning. Chick Todd's "fact check" of Donald Trump didn't go so well.

The Obama administration has no intention of telling the truth to the American public or working with a GOP Congress.  The 10,000 figure cited by this administration are just Syrian refugees resettled  under the UNHCR program. More importantly, this administration has lied about immigration, abused its executive powers and knowingly broken the law to further its agenda. The 'Syrian refugee' crisis was Obama's own making, just like the rules he thinks he only has to obey. In fact, Obama's public pledge of 100,000 refugees already exceeds his 2016 estimate of 85,000 he submitted to Congress in October. The change from 70,000 to 100,000 doesn't include even more Syrians? Is the new 'cap' believable?   Since the process of notification requires good faith estimates, the Obama administration is free to abuse this process as well. The report in full

Proposed Refugee Admissions for Fiscal Year 2016.

The attack on Trump by the media while giving Obama a free pass for 2 terms is a big reason for Donald Trump's appeal. He fights back.  The fact check by Chuck Todd and Andrea Mitchell was incomplete and  laughable at best.

The Democrats running for office want 65,000 per year and yet it would be impossible for this administration to be planning for even more or for Donald Trump to have been told about such a plan for 100,000 ?  If that number isn't believable, tell that to the Germans.

Germany now expects 1.5 million refugees in 2015

The attacks on Trump take many forms, but the tweets saying that Donald Trump was using a fake Obama tweet were priceless.

The tweet in question....

Black Lives Matter & NAACP Spin Mob Attack on People Filming Protest, Shots Fired

Blacks lives matter and the race hustlers at the NAACP have been caught in another series of lies. Lies which they use to appear relevant and to push false narratives mutually beneficial to the Democratic party going into the 2016 election season. The 'occupation' of the 4th precinct police station in North Minneapolis is an obvious reincarnation of the Occupy Wall Street movement used by the Democrats in the 2012 election and involves a lot of the same players with a slightly new narrative. Class envy makes way for the race hustle.  The Democratic party's coalition of BIG labor and "social justice warriors'  need to keep their hyphenated-American zero information voting base energized and distracted enough to eagerly vote for the old rich white lady Democrat Hillary Clinton.

Black lives matter was born out of a 4 Pinocchio lie based on the "hands up, don't shoot' myth. A myth that the group was never held accountable for spreading that fomented arson and looting in Ferguson. 

Now the shooting of Jamar Clark in North Minneapolis  is being exploited by these race hustlers and proven liars. A brief explanation of the incident is in order.
The shooting happened after police said they were called to north Minneapolis at about 12:45 a.m. Sunday for a report of an assault. When they arrived, the man had returned and was interfering with paramedics who were assisting the victim, police said. Officers tried to calm him, but there was a struggle.

At some point, an officer fired at least once, hitting the man, police said.....
Jamar Clark was interfering with paramedics aiding the victim from a domestic assault he committed. He then proceeded to fight with police and was shot.  Yet the black lives matter and the NAACP spin machine would rather push false narratives and outright lies. The story has grown from an unarmed man handcuffed and shot execution style in the street to peaceful protesters being shot by white supremacists aided by the police.

Asian white supremacists ?  The other lies are easy to debunk as well. Too bad the left-leaning media wasn't interested in the truth either.

Dividing the country by race, religion, gender and income may benefit the Democratic party and their coalition but the lies and the tactics they use must be exposed to show how the Democrats will use any means necessary to achieve their goals and control the narrative. Narratives which are false and amplified by the complicit media. A media which has largely abdicated its responsibility as the fourth estate and is now a danger to the Republic as well.

Barack Obama's ISIS Strategy Devolves

A weekend of spin from the White House on Barack Obama's comments about ISIS being 'contained' have only highlighted Obama's failures in every aspect of foreign policy. The "evolution" of Obama's approach to ISIS, or as he called them the 'jayvee team' are best summarized with these two articles.

First from the The New York Post
And just over a year later from the Daily Beast:

Obama's foreign policy is a product of his amateurism and willful ignorance. His failures are epic and numerous and ISIS is just the latest example. The 'containment' of ISIS is just a strategy to delay addressing the problems that arose from his failed 'arab spring' that included  Libya and his illegal war in Syria to topple Assad.  ISIS will now be the next President's problem as Barack Obama kicks the can of the caliphate down the road to avoid an appearance of losing yet another war in the Mideast and leaving the world a more dangerous and chaotic place compared to when he took office.

Barack Obama, a sophomoric bench-sitter when it comes to foreign policy and can't beat the 'jayvee team'

China Burns Much More Coal Than Reported, Complicating Climate Talks

Barack Obama and the climate alarmists switch between 'contribute to' and 'cause' when talking about climate change. Since the climate has always changed, even before mankind contributed to carbon emissions in any measurable way the argument was always suspect.  Add in the fact that global warming morphed into climate change and now is even referred to as climate disruption. The eco-Marxists have used their contempt of capitalism and fossil fuels to fund a new approach of wealth distribution.  Although they have been able to dupe the general public in the West to a large degree, China, the worlds main polluter has outplayed the  Obama administration and the new left once again.   While the west will produce energy at significantly higher costs and cripple its own industries by leftist design, China will exploit cheap energy and the Utopian desires of the 'progressives' to rule the world industrially and militarily.  Excerpted from The NYTimes:

China Burns Much More Coal Than Reported, Complicating Climate Talks
BEIJING — China, the world’s leading emitter of greenhouse gases from coal, has been burning up to 17 percent more coal a year than the government previously disclosed, according to newly released data. The finding could complicate the already difficult efforts to limit global warming
Even for a country of China’s size, the scale of the correction is immense. The sharp upward revision in official figures means that China has released much more carbon dioxide — almost a billion more tons a year according to initial calculations — than previously estimated.
The increase alone is greater than the whole German economy emits annually from fossil fuels.
Illustrating the scale of the revision, the new figures add about 600 million tons to China’s coal consumption in 2012 — an amount equivalent to more than 70 percent of the total coal used annually by the United States.

Not only has China not been telling the truth about their emissions but the amount of CO2 actually produced has been significantly higher than estimated and hasn't increased the rate of predicted warming.  Strange indeed. Almost as strange as the history of climate alarmism.

Hillary Clinton's Top Aide Huma Abedin Signed State Dept. Pledge Before Leaving

Hillary Clinton and all those that surround her are dishonest to say the least and the Benghazi debacle and cover-up is a great example.  Huma Abedin, the wife of disgraced Anthony Weiner, is another Clintonista that will help Hillary gain power by any means necessary. The lies told by Hillary Clinton about the attack on the special mission compound in Benghazi and her email server are numerous and those that aided the cover-up include her staff and the press. Deny, delay and dis-inform is what the Democratic party does best.

 The following article is excerpted from TheHIl
Clinton aide Abedin signed State Dept. pledge before leaving
Longtime Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin signed a pledge stating that she had given all work-related documents back to the State Department when she left office, despite the fact that some of her emails did not make it back to the government’s hands until years later. 
The Daily Caller on Friday received a copy of the “separation statement” — formally known as an OF-109 form — as result of a lawsuit filed under the Freedom of Information Act.

As part of the agreement, Abedin promised to “have surrendered to responsible officials all classified or administratively controlled documents and material with which I was charged or which I had in my possession.” 
She also pledged to have given up all documents “containing classified or administratively controlled information” given during the course of her work, as well as “all unclassified documents, and papers relating to the official business of the government acquired” while in office. 
Despite her signature on the form, however, Abedin retained an email address on former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private email server. Her messages from that server were not handed over to the government until years after she left office in 2013.
In signing the form, Abedin also acknowledged that she could be subject to “criminal penalties” for lying on the document. 
It’s unclear whether Abedin would be subject to prosecution, given the unusual nature of Clinton’s private email setup. Yet the revelations Friday add to days of reports that the FBI has expanded its probe into Clinton’s personal server and whether classified information was mishandled.

Abedin served as deputy chief of staff while Clinton served as the nation’s top diplomat. She is currently the vice chairwoman of Clinton’s Democratic presidential campaign. 
In addition to Abedin’s form, the Daily Caller also revealed an OF-109 form for Cheryl Mills, Clinton’s former chief of staff. However, Mills did not appear to have signed the form.
Earlier this year, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki told reporters that the department did “not have any record” of Clinton herself signing a document.

ObamaCare Insurance Risk Corridor Nearly Depleted, S&P Warns

Obamacare is a failure many times over no matter how the administration and the propaganda machine spins it.  Increased costs, increased emergency room visits, lower enrollment rates than predicted and bankrupt healthcare 'coops' are just a few of the failings of  Barack Obama's signature healthcare law.  Executive action delaying the rest of the roll-out until next year and later will not stop the inevitable failure of Obamacare.  As The Hill reports, Obamacare was sold using many BIG lies as a few more come to light.
A key ObamaCare program intended to cushion health insurers from high costs is facing a massive cash shortage going into 2016, Standard and Poor’s said Thursday. 
Under the so-called “risk corridor” program, the Obama administration charges insurers with more-than-expected profits and redistributes the money to plans with losses.

In the first two years of the healthcare law, more insurers than expected have ended up with balance sheets in the red. As a result, the risk pool now has only about $1 to cover every $10 in claims – an equation that is not likely to improve until the market stabilizes. 
“We estimate that that the 2015 ACA risk corridor will be significantly underfunded, as was the case the previous year,” Standard and Poor’s analyst Deep Banerjee predicted in a report Thursday. 
Banerjee said external funding would likely be needed to add to the funds in 2016, a move that would likely have to be made by Congress. 
Federal health officials had expected a rough few years after new rules that said insurers couldn’t reject customers with pre-existing conditions – adding more risk to the marketplace. 
But the risk pool has been depleted faster than expected as insurers intentionally lowered costs in the early days of the ObamaCare maketable with hopes of reeling in new customers. 
The situation could improve this year, with more insurers raising their premiums, Banerjee said.
The risk pool was designed for insurance companies to offer artificially low premiums to entice customers to their plans and enabled the Democrats to say these rates are proof Obamcare was a good deal. Of course now the premiums are rising many times faster than inflation so what is left? Skyrocketing premiums and more deficit spending by bailing out Obamacare with tax money as the article concludes. Where will the Democrats find the funds for their fiasco? ( Incidentally, Barack Obama is the president that asked for and signed 'pay as you go' ).
“In our view, it looks like appropriations may be the only way to fully fund the risk corridor deficits,” the analysis warned.\
 Obamacare was designed to fail and was based on LIES.. It was always a Trojan Horse for a single payer government controlled healthcare system The Democratic party's zero information voter base was expertly exploited by Obama's apparatchiks and they relied heavily on the stupidity of the Democratic voter and their representatives to get Obamacare passed, just as they will when they push for single payer 'medicare for all' .

BTW, single payer is a failure, just ask Vermont....
