    When all the same crazy people watch ONE news outlet to get their news, of course it looks higher. Real, open minded people have MANY outlets to get their news from…CBS/NBC/ABC/MSNBC/CNN/Headline News….Local News and just watching or reading news online. All the crazy Right wing….Fox News….Of course they don’t change the channel because they are brainwashed.

    You are right. Open minded people need to watch Fox also. All of the others are left wing.Fox is right wing. So one has to watch Fox also to know what is going on

    I think she meant that you have the right to say “People have a right to have a gun”.

    Speaking of San Francisco celebrities, Gavin Newsom was on ‘Hannity’ last night promoting his book. Cordial interview. Gavin must still be on friendly terms with Kimberly Guifoyle. :grin:
    Charles Hangel was back on the program and left saying “nice to be back”. :shock:

    Obama’s Bogus State of the Union Promises

    Tonight, the American people will be watching President Obama’s fifth State of the Union address. How has he done on his promises over the past four years?

    Take a look at some of the promises Obama made back in 2009 during his first State of the Union.

    “I pledged to cut the deficit in half by the end of my first term in office.”

    “Over the next two years, this [stimulus] plan will save or create 3.5 million jobs.”

    ********The President promised great things from the stimulus plan, but as Heritage’s J.D. Foster has said, we have to look at his record. He may have promised 3.5 million new jobs, but he’s 7.7 million jobs in the hole instead.

    “…we must have quality, affordable health care for every American. It’s a commitment that’s paid for in part by efficiencies in our system that are long overdue.”

    “We will invest $15 billion a year to develop technologies like wind power and solar power; advanced biofuels, clean coal, and more fuel-efficient cars and trucks built right here in America.”

    Watch tonight and see the latest round of lies from obumbles.

    A reason to drink —

    The State of the Union drinking game

    If you are going to watch President Barack Obama’s State Of The Union address Tuesday, you might as well get drunk in the process.

    Luckily for you, The Daily Caller staff created a SOTU drinking game just to get you through it. We are generous like that. (If you are so inclined, you may combine this drinking game with last year’s, and you are bound to have a great night.)

    Without further adue, here is TheDC’s State of the Union drinking game:

    Whenever Obama says “jobs,” pour eight percent of your drink down the drain.

    Take a shot whenever Obama mentions the word “gun” or other Second Amendment-related terminology.

    When Obama engages in class warfare, stab the richest person in the room with your broken beer bottle (which was broken, of course, by smashing it on said gentleman’s head).

    When Obama mentions “green energy,” swirl your drink in a windmill-like fashion and pour it down the drain.

    When the president says “debt” or “deficit,” take one of your friend’s beers and promise to pay him back later.

    If Obama says “It’s the right thing to do,” scream “YEAH IT IS!” and chug your whole drink.

    If Obama says “Let me be clear,” take a shot of vodka or translucent alcohol of your choice.

    If Obama mentions technology or technology education, “mupload” a drunk “selfie” to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram

    •When the president uses the passive voice, hit your neighbor the right, and blame your neighbor on the left.

    •Drink a vodka with Red Bull every time Vice President Joe Biden looks like he’s about to fall asleep.

    •If Speaker of the House John Boehner’s complexion looks particularly orange, pour a screw driver.

    Enjoy tomorrow morning, as it will only get worse.

    DNC caught trying to deceive reporters about identity of Rubio critic

    “My name is Annette Capella. I’m a senior citizen living in St. John’s County, Florida.”

    That’s how a Florida woman trotted out by the Democratic National Committee on Monday to criticize Republican Sen. Marco Rubio introduced herself during a DNC-sponsored call.

    In press advisories promoting the call, the DNC referred to Capella solely as “a Medicare recipient from Florida.”

    The purpose of the conference call was for DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Democratic Rep. Chris Van Hollen and Capella to slam Florida Sen. Marco Rubio before he gives the Republican response to the State of the Union this week.

    “As his constituent, I sincerely hope he decides that America’s seniors are more important than Tea Party politics or protecting generous tax loopholes for Donald Trump and Big Oil,” Capella said during her remarks.

    But it turns out that the DNC was hiding pertinent information about Capella’s background: She is not just your average senior citizen in Florida. She is a former leader of the St. Johns Democratic Party and a state Democratic committeewoman.

    When a reporter busted the DNC and asked Wasserman Schultz during the call, asked whether Capella is the same person who served as a Democratic Party official in the state, the DNC chairwoman responded, “Annette can answer the … question.”

    “I stepped down as chair,” Capella explained. “I’m now a state committee woman.”

    Reacting to this on Monday afternoon, Republican National Committee spokesman Tim Miller tweeted at DNC spokesman Brad Woodhouse with the phrase, “Smooth move.”

    The dumbocrats just keep on lying like obumbles.

    My feelings regarding the SOTU. There should be more respect on both sides . Remember when our President insulted the SCOTUS with his uncivil remarks & Democrat partisans largely cheered . Then , it’s followed by a Republican outburst of “You lie”

    Our President & our Congress act worse than bullies . Tonight a Democrat is bringing an illegal immigrant, & , a Republican is bringing Ted Nugent . Then you have the Sandy Hook victims parents etc.

    Civility ???? We’ll have to wait & see.

    And yet the plot thickens…America…on how low of a sleaze politicians have become in both parties!

    Dig deeper…dig deeper…on all of them…and if we can’t get them thrown out for working to destroy us from within by putting our children and grandchildren into debt to a COMMUNIST country…let’s get rid of them…for their lack of integrity and honor.

    These are the slugs who were sent to Washington to stand for OUR self-interests and end up only representing their own self-interests!



    First the Federalist Party…then the Whig Party…then the Repuglicans…now a new one is needed to fight the other two!

    Tesla – if you take any engineering classes in college or jr college you will learn about Tesla. I believe we in the U.S. don’t heard about him in high school because he worked for Edison and Tesla come to the U.S. from Serbia. AC was looked at as the European way and DC the American way.

    When was the last time a country told the U.S. they were developing nuclear weapons to attack us?

    No Obama will not address this, just like Clinton didn’t address the threats of bin laden. It’s going to take five years before those threats can become a reality. He won’t be in office then.

    Three years after the White House arranged a hero’s welcome at the State of the Union address for the Fort Hood police sergeant and her partner who stopped the deadly shooting there, Kimberly Munley says President Obama broke the promise he made to her that the victims would be well taken care of.

    “Betrayed is a good word,” former Sgt. Munley told ABC News in a tearful interview to be broadcast tonight on “World News with Diane Sawyer” and “Nightline.”

    “Not to the least little bit have the victims been taken care of,” she said. “In fact they’ve been neglected.”

    There was no immediate comment from the White House about Munley’s allegations.
