Who's Pandora? Lemme See!
Obama Never Met With Sebelius Prior to Obamacare Rollout
Not My Job!
"Obama has not had a single one-on-one meeting with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius since the passage of Obamacare in 2010
...The Government Accountability Institute report
found that since Obamacare was signed on March 23, 2010, Obama met with "various Cabinet secretaries a total of 277 times
The presidential schedule, though, did not "document a single one-on-one meeting with Secretary Kathleen Sebelius of the Department of Health and Human Services," though there was "one instance of Secretary Sebelius meeting jointly with the President and Secretary of the Treasury Timothy Geithner."
According to the White House schedule, Obama "met with secretaries from the Departments of Defense, State, and Treasury for 263 (95%) out of his 277 face-to-face meetings." Obama also had meetings with "secretaries from the Departments of Agriculture, Education, Justice, Energy, Homeland Security, Interior, Labor, Health and Human Services, Veterans Affairs"
Fast & Furious Tell-All: ATF Told in May 2010 Program Would Lead to Officers' Deaths
The Unarmed Truth
"The opening prologue of the new tell-all book from Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) special agent John Dodson shows the ATF was made aware of concerns that someone in U.S. law enforcement might die as a result of the program Operation Fast and Furious as early May 2010.
Several months later, on Dec. 15, 2010, U.S. Border Patrol agent Brian Terry was murdered with Fast and Furious weapons that Mexican drug cartel operatives in the region were using."

Cite Burlington to Make the Monkey's Case
"A US animal rights group has filed what it said is the first lawsuit seeking to establish the "legal personhood" of chimpanzees
The non-profit Nonhuman Rights Project asked a New York state court to declare a 26-year-old chimp named Tommy "a cognitively complex autonomous legal person with the fundamental legal right not to be imprisoned."
We have elected too many cognitively simple primates to the Burlington City Council, Des Moines County Board of Supervisors and the Iowa Legislature. Even though a few should have been imprisoned, we let them roam free.
Burlington provides precedent for the plaintiff.
Is Still Vaporware
Hillary the Liar
Here’s a Snopes “True” reply about Hillary Clinton an incident that occurred during the Nixon Watergate scandal and why she was fired
Remember this is the same woman that lied about Benghazi and a year later when she said in front of congress, "With all due respect, the fact is, we had four dead Americans! Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided they'd go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make? It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again." – Clinton shouting over Wisconsin Republican Sen. Ron Johnson.
Just another lie generated by the Obama administration and spoken by a dead beat Secretary of State who accomplished nothing but poison the air with her constant air travel. Believe me she knew it wasn’t a protest and not some idiots who decided to kill some Americans the night it happened, remember she is a born liar and has a history of lying that has been well documented.
I suppose Secretary of State this was Obama’s way of getting her out of Washington, sort of an out of sight out of mind arrangement as of means to get rid of her and give him a free run to the White House. Of course people back then didn’t know that Obama himself is a natural born liar and did not possess the qualifications to run the country. Obama is basically a nobody with no experience at doing anything but reading a teleprompter and tearing up the golf links. Anybody know where he went during the Benghazi attack and murders, he disappeared for several hours and no one knows where he was. How can a so called sitting president be gone for a good eight hours and no one knows where he is?
Here’s how his health care was formulated: Take away the current health insurance of 85 percent of the population and destroy the economic health of the country at the same time in order to give, supposedly 15 percent of the population a rip-off insurance known as Obamacare.
Hillary Clinton should never have another government job because she definitely cannot be trusted and has a history of lying and other unscrupulous conduct unbecoming a public servant.
The population of America has also had its fill of the Clinton’s and their lying and it’s time for them to get a real job and stop ripping off the public.
Maybe the Clintons could go back to Arkansas and raise pigs or cotton, provided they have the skills required, they’ve got the money although how they got it could probably raise a few eyebrows.
There is no pig in Arkansas that wants her back. And you can't sell dirty cotton.
Somewhere Over The Rainbow
Swift Boat Kerry's Carrot
It'll Make You Puke!
Mike Rattlin' The Tin Pans
Well, it has finally happened. Mike had a spew on the Hack Eye editorial page Tuesday and of course he was bragging about Obama’s great diplomatic feat of signing a deal with Iran, a country that can seldom or never be trusted to keep its word, sort of like Obama keeps his word to the American people.
Only time will tell if Obama’s faith in Iran will ever pan out because only time will tell once they get the initial $7 billion it frees up for them to jump start their economy. Seems the U.S. failed to negotiate the release of the pastor held and being tortured by the Iranians for trying to established Christian churches in Iran.
Reading what Kerry had to say about the deal reminds me of what Chamberlin said in England just before WWII, “Pease in our time” after he returned from Germany with a nonaggression paper signed by Hitler.
Only time will tell.
The Hack Eye's Duck & Cover - Like a Cat Covering Crap!
Why would the Hack Eye be running a rehash of that horrible boating accident that happened a couple of years ago where four young people were unfortunately killed. I’ve never figured out why the Hack Eye would continue to print this story when we have a president that’s used every dirty trick known to politics that got him reelected a second time with a campaign based on a string of lies and false data. Now he’s been taken by Iran for the purpose of trying to get our minds off of his number one failure, Obamacare, a bill that is the ultimate mistake ever made by a president and a disgrace to our country.
Even Oprah Winfrey's has been duped by this guy when she says, “she thinks his problems are based on race” when even many blacks can’t stand the guy and his constant lying and manipulation of facts and figures to dupe the dupable into reelecting him again. I would think Oprah would know when inadequate performance and the inability to lead takes precedence and has nothing to do with Obama’s color and never has. The guy has never had the experience of much other than “Affirmative Action” which I’m sure he knows plenty because he’s never done anything else to enrich his experience and continues to commit tyranny against the American people and the constitution.
What he and Dirty Harry Reid did in the Senate is a classic example of dirty in the gutter politics and Obama is the leader in the application of dirty anything to get his way. Both Obama and Reid were dead set against playing the nuclear card until they were in the majority, both made speeches about how horrible it was but now the shoe is on the other foot and they see nothing wrong with tyranny now. Obama is a narcissistic in every manner of the word and always has been and nothing he has ever done in Washington was for the benefit of the people of America, a country he basically knows nothing about since he’s a dedicated communist as were his parents and grandparents on his mother’s side.
Even Matt Damon turned against him after he found out he had been duped by Obama and his lies; so not all in the entertainment industry continue to be duped by Obama and some are finally putting distance between themselves and Obama lies.
With so many problems our country and city are facing why would a little socialistic rag like the Hack Eye make such a monster out of a tragedy that happened a couple of years ago? I wonder what their motive was for giving a blow by blow dissertation of the inner workings of the local law enforcement personnel and some people in the DNR (basically game wardens).
Still a Depressant
Iranian Deal Worse Than Bad
Big Boob Kerry Putz for Bigger Boob Barack
Well, now we have the world’s great liar or at least the American people can’t trust anything he says, telling the world, along with some other western countries and Russia that they have reach a tentative agreement with Iran on their nuclear program.
In Obama’s rush to get out of Iraq we now have lost everything fought for in Iraq, a country that now let’s Iran supply Syria with arms flown and driven across their country for delivery and no telling what else their supplying Syria via Iraq. Terrorism is now running rampart in Iraq and the country is a mess.
I would imagine the Iranian negotiators laughed all the way back to Iran thinking about how they duped America again and will be awarded in excess of seven billion over the next six months while North Korea continues to help them out with their nuclear program leaving Iran to renege because when you have liars negotiating with liars nothing is as it may seem. Israel is no safer and probably less safe now than before this one sided Iranian deal. Iran is what Reagan would have called “evil empire” if he was still in Washington.
Iran will just have North Korea continue to work on the Iranian nuclear program while they get some relief from their Korean friends and America is faced with another Obama disaster and world mess.
Seems to me someone else at one time had waved a paper signed by Hitler in the air and told the British people, “Peace in our time” and we all know what happened to that peace. I hope John Kerry’s, “Agreement in Geneva,” when dealing with Iran is nothing more than another failure coming out of our amateur administration in Washington.
This is a huge win for Iran and another fumble by Obama and crew and specially Israel who now is basically standing alone against Iran a country that can’t be trusted anymore than Obama’s word, and we in America know what his word means.
Works Both Ways
"Denver Post seeks a pot website editor" - Hawkeye Filled Position Long Ago
"Update: I asked news director Kevin Dale about interest in the position and he replied: “It’s early, but it’s an internal only position... We’re not adding a spot right now. Our contract with the Guild requires all new positions to be posted, so we did that. The editor will come from within the newsroom
When does the local Ad Vertiser establish this position? Reading the Ad Vertiser's corrupted content offered as news, hiring from within should not be a problem.

Where's George Bush? Where is The Hawkeye?
I haven't seen a column from Mike Sweet or Dale Alison proclaiming the Obamacare fiasco being George Bush's fault. In fact, I really haven't seem much at all in the local rag about Obama and his abject failure.
It must be pretty dismal these days down on South Main.
Hy-Vee on Angular was cleaned out of brownie mix. The Agency store was down to 2 boxes. They couldn't even give away free newspapers either. The depression must be stupefying.
"President Obama said Thursday that what’s good for illegal immigrants is also good for people who are losing their health insurance because of Obamacare, saying he’ll use prosecutorial discretion to let companies continue to offer health plans that violate his law
"The best way to get rid of a bad law is to enforce it strictly."
Obamacare is a train wreck.
The vast majority of people did not want Obamacare. On a straight party vote, it was jammed down our throats. Those responsible are running for cover.
The executive branch is responsible for enforcing laws passed by Congress. The chief executive cheats on his duties of office by not enforcing the law. He is distancing himself from a disaster he bears a major responsibility for creating. He alone is not responsible.
As with much bad legislation, Obamacare was rammed through in haste. Then Speaker of the House Pelosi advocating passing the bill to find out what was in it
. Unwisely, it was made so.
Congressman Loonsack and now wannabe Tom Harkin's U. S. Senate replacement Bruce Braley voted in the House as instructed. Both caught hell at the time. You have not seen our congressman hold a real, face to face, town hall type constituent give and take ever since.
A bad law unenforced is no answer. Like a coiled snake, you never know when it will strike. The law needs to go. Those responsible need to go.
In 2014, vote from office those who voted to create the train wreck.

Obama Bypasses Gettysburg 150th Anniversary - Socialist President Not 'We' The People
"Lincoln's view of individual freedom is at odds with the current president's"
"There is no inclination in this quarter to second-guess the White House's rationale for not attending. And maybe it's just as well we won't hear Mr. Obama's thoughts on the Gettysburg Address
. Those words were about a renewal of the nation's unity, and five years into the Obama presidency, the United States is about as politically divided as it can get. The division is so intense that Americans paint their political beliefs in one of two colors: blue or red.
...For Mr. Obama, and many others, "We the People" means not the Union of sovereign states, the Union for which a civil war was fought, but the single political agency of the national government.
...Lincoln was not "anti-government" and obviously not averse to federal power. But surely Lincoln, the Illinois frontier lawyer who spoke of a nation "conceived in liberty," would be aghast to see the piling up of laws, rules, must-dos and must-not-dos that pervade the American workplace, judicial code, commerce, health care, education, and even, of all things, common speech.
Lincoln's purpose in reuniting the nation was to elevate, not diminish, freedom for "men," for individuals. Barack Obama's election to the presidency personifies Lincoln's purpose. We will wait for some future president to renew the full meaning of Lincoln's ideas at that Gettysburg battlefield."
