Secretary of State John Kerry excuses Islamist terrorist murder of civilians

Sunday, November 22nd, 2015

It’s hard to believe that an American secretary of state would justify terrorism — well, not so hard to believe considering the depravity of the Obama administration. Regarding the savage murder of 12 journalists by Islamists at the Charlie Hebdo magazine in Paris in January, Kerry said:

… “There was a sort of particularized focus and perhaps even a legitimacy in terms of — not a legitimacy, but a rationale that you could attach yourself to somehow and say, ‘OK, they’re really angry because of this and that’” …

“Legitimacy” and “rationale” for the murder of satirical cartoonists drawing and publishing pictures? This is outrageous. John Kerry is despicable, justifying terror meant to silence two of the West’s most hallowed ideals: 1) the practice of free speech and 2) the protection of a free press. Kerry should be fired by President Obama — at least censured — but Obama agrees with Kerry. What a said state of affairs. But such type behavior shall only increase if the American people remain silent.

Stand up for what is right. Remind your elected officials of the ideals enshrined in our nation’s Constitution. Ask that John Kerry step down from his position. Ask your public officials to publicly condemn Kerry and demand that he step down. You can use the following link to contact your elected representatives:

Cracks appear in Obamacare: largest U.S. health insurer considering exiting

Thursday, November 19th, 2015

Despite the fact that the “Obama administration pointed out that many people are signing up for Affordable Care Act policies:”

… The biggest U.S. health insurer is considering pulling out of Obamacare as it loses hundreds of millions of dollars on the program, casting a pall over President Barack Obama’s signature domestic policy achievement.

UnitedHealth Group Inc. has scaled back marketing efforts for plans sold to individuals this year and may quit the business entirely in 2017. …

While UnitedHealth has been slower than some of its rivals to sell Obamacare policies, the announcement may indicate that other insurers are struggling, said Sheryl Skolnick, an analyst at Mizuho Securities.

“If one of the largest and presumably, by reputation and experience, the most sophisticated of the health plans out there can’t make money on the exchanges, then one has to question whether the exchange as an institution is a viable enterprise,” Skolnick said. …

Generally, free markets tend to be accurate predictors of major economic trends.


Democratic presidential contenders stick to appeasement/foolishness despite Paris terror attacks

Thursday, November 19th, 2015

Why learn the lessons of history when you can pander to a constituency that refuses to recognize the threat of radical Islamists? The Islamist savages murdered 129 and wounded over 350 innocents in Paris Friday, but during the Democratic presidential debate on Saturday in Iowa, Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, and Martin O’Malley insisted they would continue their firm commitments to appeasing and/or ignoring Islamist murderers:

… 1) Hillary Clinton would refuse to apply the phrase “radical Islam” to ISIS; 2) Bernie Sanders would maintain that climate change is a greater threat to national security than ISIS or Islamic terrorism in general; and 3) Martin O’Malley, with Clinton’s agreement, would insist that the U.S. stick to a proposal to admit 65,000 Syria refugees into the country. …

History shows us the terrible consequences of appeasing terror. Just one example out of many is sufficient. Have people already forgotten what happened to this world — how many millions of innocents were killed — after throngs of cowards catered to Hitler and Stalin in the mid 20th century?
