QOTD: "Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., says he would be willing to repeal Obamacare with a simple majority if he takes over as majority leader in January...

...McConnell drew headlines on Tuesday when he said on Fox News when asked about fully repealing Obamacare that, "It would take 60 votes in the Senate, and no one thinks we’re going to have 60 Republicans.” He added, “And it would take a president — presidential signature. And no one thinks we're going to get that.”

A number of people took the comment to mean that he wouldn’t be willing to use a tool known as “reconciliation” to attempt to repeal the law. Though legislation typically requires 60 votes in the Senate to stave off a filibuster by the minority, the rules allow for budget-related items to be passed through a reconciliation process that requires a simple 51-vote majority." --Philip Klein

C'MON MAN! Obama White House Says Eric Holder's Wife is Covered by "Executive Privilege"

By Investor's Business Daily

Scandal: Documents obtained by a government watchdog group list emails between the attorney general and his wife regarding a White House statement on the "gun walking" scandal the White House wants kept secret.

The release of the government's Vaughn Index of documents that the administration withheld from the House Oversight Committee's investigation of Fast and Furious may not be the October surprise that the Obama administration hoped for. It raises more questions than it answers and shows the absurd extent of the administration's cover-up.

On July 18, U.S. District Court Judge John Bates ordered the Justice Department to produce, in response to a lawsuit by the government watchdog group Judicial Watch, its Vaughn Index of withheld Fast and Furious documents by Oct. 22. The DOJ had already had enough time to produce it, Bates said in denying a request to delay its release until after the Nov. 4 elections.

In a Vaughn Index, the government must list each withheld document, state the statutory exemption claimed for it and explain how the disclosure of each document would damage the governmental interests asserted by the exemption.

The index provided under Bates'order shows just how far the administration will go to protect its actions in Fast and Furious.

THE STORY CHANGES AGAIN: Ebola Is Now ‘Aerostable’ And Can Remain Active On Surfaces For 50 Days

By Michael Snyder

When it comes to Ebola, the story that the government is telling us just keeps on changing. At first, government officials were claiming that it was very difficult to spread the Ebola virus. Some of them were even comparing it to HIV. We were given the impression that we had to have “direct contact” with someone else’s body fluids in order to have any chance of catching the virus. But of course that is not true at all. Now authorities are admitting that Ebola is “aerostable”, that it can be “spread through droplets”, and that it can remain on surfaces for up to 50 days. That is far different information than we have been getting up until this point. So that means when they were so confidently declaring that they know exactly how Ebola spreads they were lying to us.

On October 24th, a 33 page document was released by the Defense Threat Reduction Agency, and in that document it is admitted that Ebola is “aerostable”. WND was one of the first news outlets to report on this…

Bummer, Democrats: It Turns Out that Obama's Policies Really Are on the Ballot, You Nitwits

By Richard Larsen

“I am not on the ballot this fall. Michelle’s pretty happy about that. But make no mistake, my policies are on the ballot. Every single one of them,” said President Barrack Obama two weeks ago. There can be no doubt that the agenda of the past six years is a factor in the mid-term elections in two weeks, but for the president to so inextricably conjoin his policies with the election increases the significance and possible outcomes.

Reactions to the president’s statement have been predictably mixed in political circles. The comment drew consternation from some Democratic Senate candidates who have been attempting to distance themselves from the president and his policies, even though they’ve historically been supportive. Some have reveled in the declaration believing that linking the president’s policies, and his now dismal approval rating, to the midterms increases the odds of Republicans extending their majority in the House and regaining control of the Senate.

Last Monday the president doubled down on his remarks in an interview with Al Sharpton on MSNBC. Speaking of those congressional and senatorial candidates attempting to distance themselves from his policies, the president said, “These are all folks who vote with me. They have supported my agenda in Congress. I tell them, I said, ‘You know what, you do what you need to win.’”

There are two significant revelations embedded in that counsel. The first is that those of the president’s party are supportive of his agenda, regardless of what they may say. That verity is bourn out by near 100% support of the president by his party member’s votes in congress. The second revelatory counsel is for them to do whatever they need to do to win. Obviously that includes deceit to appear to voters as not amenable with the president’s agenda.

This should be immensely disturbing to voters, that their Machiavellian tactics would so blatantly based on dishonesty. Disavowing the president’s policies, while having actively supported and voted for them, is counting on voter ignorance for success, and is clearly deceitful. In other words, they have to lie to hope for success at the ballot box. This comes as no surprise to many of us, but for it to be so explicitly disclosed by the national figurehead of the party speaks volumes not only of him, but the Party he leads.

QOTD: "But you know the truth: The middle class is still in trouble. The middle class is still in trouble. You don’t have to know the numbers, you can feel it. You can feel it in your bones.

...According to all the statistics, all the economic Policy Institute, and all these groups that are outside experts in the economy, the gross domestic product means the nation grew over the last ten years by over 25 percent, and productivity went up over 30 percent. But middle class wages went up, according to this group, by only 14 cents. Hear me? 14 cents. You know it. You don’t have to know the number, but you know. The middle class has been left behind." --Vice President Joe Biden

NEW HAMPSHIRE: Job Growth for Immigrants Far Outpacing That of American Citizens

By Karen Zeigler and Steven A. Camarota

The Gang of Eight immigration bill (S.744) passed last June would have roughly doubled the number of new foreign workers allowed into the country, as well as legalized illegal immigrants.

Both of New Hampshire’s senators voted for it.

An analysis of government data by the Center for Immigration Studies shows that since 2000, 71 percent of the net increase in the number of working-age (16 to 65) people holding a job in New Hampshire has gone to immigrants (legal and illegal) — even though the native-born accounted for 65 percent of population growth among the working-age. As a result, the share of natives holding a job in the state has declined significantly. The decline in employment has been felt primarily by natives without a college education.

Among the findings:

  • The total number of working-age (16 to 65) immigrants (legal and illegal) holding a job in New Hampshire increased by 21,000 from the first half of 2000 to the first half of 2014, while the number of working-age natives with a job increased by just 8,700 over the same period.

IT'S COME TO THIS: Obama has secret plans to import Ebola-stricken illegal aliens into U.S.

By Investor's Business Daily

Public Safety: To get other countries to send medical teams to West Africa, the State Department created plans to treat infected noncitizen doctors and health care workers in the U.S. This would put Americans' health at risk.

As we look for our new Ebola czar on the side of milk cartons, we can clearly see the chaotic handling of the few Ebola patients who have reached our shores. We watch shifting guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control etched in sand, the sending of U.S. soldiers into the hot zones of West Africa without any real plans on how to handle their return, and governors struggling to fill in the leadership gap left by the administration's malpractice.

The limited number of cases has burdened the few hospitals capable of handling Ebola with excessive costs and commitments of doctors and nurses — who put themselves at risk — as well as the task of finding all those that the infected individuals may have come in contact with. Quarantines are mandatory, then they are not, and self-monitoring is supposed to be enough to safeguard the health of the American people.

Despite historical and medical evidence that quarantines at the source of infectious epidemics are the only way to stem the tide, the Obama administration is not only refusing to impose a travel ban from West Africa, which Australia has imposed, but is actively considering bringing noncitizens who are infected to America to be treated.

QOTD: "A former CBS News reporter who quit the network over claims it kills stories that put President Obama in a bad light says she was spied on by a “government-related entity” that planted classified documents on her computer.

In her new memoir, Sharyl Attkisson says a source who arranged to have her laptop checked for spyware in 2013 was “shocked” and “flabbergasted” at what the analysis revealed.

“This is outrageous. Worse than anything Nixon ever did. I wouldn’t have believed something like this could happen in the United States of America,” Attkisson quotes the source saying.

She speculates that the motive was to lay the groundwork for possible charges against her or her sources." --Kyle Smith and Bruce Golding
