Bear with me, as I clear some tabs before my ‘puter crashes.
What’s this I hear about the White House asking churches to “spread the word” about ObamaCare. These repeated attempts to use “God’s partners” to spread progressive propaganda are beyond disgusting:
PULLING BACK THE CURTAIN: POTUS, SEBELIUS ASK FAITH LEADERS TO OUTREACH – With health reform’s popularity steadily slipping, top administration officials turned to faith-based groups that supported the law to do their part explaining it. On an hour-long conference call Tuesday, they outlined the Patients’ Bill of Rights and asked faith-based and community groups to get the word out on the new provisions. “I wanted to have this call because we have a big day coming up, the six-month anniversary of health reform’s passage,” President Obama told leaders on the conference call, hosted through Health and Human Services’ Center for Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships. Obama later added that, “The debate in Washington is over, the Affordable Care Act is now law. …I think all of you can be really important validators and trusted resources for friends and neighbors, to help explain what’s now available to them.” Joshua DuBois, head of the White House’s Office of Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships, got even more specific: “Get the word out there, get information out there. Make use of the resources described on this call: the website, door hangers, one pagers and so forth. We’ve got work to do.”
Separation of Church and State only applies when conservative issues are involved, don’t you know.
A history of RINO backstabbing going back to 1994 is compiled in one infuriating list: Party unity is for the wing nuts.
The latest on Panthergate at PJ Media: Bombshell: Defying DOJ Instructions, Christopher Coates Will Testify Friday on New Black Panther Case
Ten months ago, Coates, the award-winning former chief of the Voting Section of the Civil Rights Division, was subpoenaed by the Commission to testify about the case. He was subsequently instructed by DOJ officials to ignore the subpoena. Within the past hour, commissioners were informed that Chairman Gerald Reynolds had spoken with Coates and that the chairman would reconvene the Commission’s ongoing hearing on Friday at 9:30 a.m. to hear Coates’s testimony.
The Civil Rights Commission has sought to obtain Coates’ testimony on Justice’s dismissal of the New Black Panther Party voter intimidation case in Philadelphia. In a recent request to Justice, the Commission agreed to limit initial questioning of Coates to accusations made by former career lawyer J. Christian Adams about statements and other actions by Julie Fernandes, an Obama administration political appointee, if DOJ produced Coates.
The DOJ refused.
More from Ed Morrissey at Hot Air: Uh oh: DoJ lawyer to testify tomorrow on voter-intimidation case dismissal
Expect some fireworks tomorrow. (Oh, yes.)
Also at PJ Media: Is Barney Frank Nervous? Bill Clinton Coming to Rescue in MA
Former President Bill Clinton will appear to endorse Barney Frank in Taunton, MA, on September 26. When he announced President Clinton’s visit, Frank attempted to deflect the inference that he is concerned about the election by asserting that the visit was President Clinton’s idea. Sean Bielat — the young, attractive Republican challenger — accused Frank of “running scared”.
Bubba and Bawny!
A Counter Rally Against Clinton and Frank is being planned. They’re asking people to keep the signs tasteful…..(’nuff said).
Some conservative blogs are speculating on what sort of “October Surprise”, the Dems have in store for us this year. You know they’re desperate.
With the soothsayers predicting a debacle, the minds of Democrats must be pretty sharply focused about now. They do have one advantage: virtually total control over the “news media”, which they can pretty well use to orchestrate most anything, raising it to enough of a crescendo to qualify as a spoiler for Republican chances. Against that, it isn’t a Presidential year. Axelrod and Rahm must be puzzling that one out. If they’ve got something really good, wouldn’t it be better to save it for 2012? Or do they let it off now and expect to get (or manufacture) something else for then?
Jim Geraghty at National Review Online suggests — or, rather, his invisible advisor “Obi-Wan Kenobi” advises — that Republicans hold a contest to see who can predict the October surprise.
If you have any predictions, leave them in the comments.
JUST GREAT: Connie Hair at Human Events: Senate Judiciary Vote Thursday for Five Fringe Obama Judges
PLEASE! The latest line the MSM is selling is Voters “Feel Sorry” for Obama?
In her essay, Marcus would have us believe that the nation’s voters are only upset with congress, and that a large number of voters actually feel sorry for President Obama. Nothing could be further from the whole truth. (and telling a half-truth is exactly the same thing as telling a lie).
In case you missed it, here’s Obama getting heckled again by AIDs activists at a NYC fund raiser Wed. night:
Obama has been stingy, compared to Bush, on AIDs funding, and they know it.
Lots of good stuff, here:
I do so wish he would run for President.
Michelle Malkin: Once more: Stop the special-interest, speech-squelching DISCLOSE Act
Dr. Zero in the Greenroom has the LOL line of the day: Doubling Down on O’Donnell:
In the interests of full disclosure, I sized up the Delaware race and reluctantly concluded it was strategically wise to support Castle, who had a much better chance of taking the seat, and possibly delivering a Republican Senate. I made this recommendation to play the odds, not predict the future. Now that O’Donnell is the nominee, I support her candidacy without hesitation. I dearly hope Senator O’Donnell and I can meet up in Hogsmeade someday, and have a laugh about my lack of faith over a butterbeer.
