anonymous asked:

Can u explain the republican political ad targeted at women?? In not American so idgi

I’m guessing you meant this one.

Basically, the ad (gifs 1-2, 5-7) is attacking Obama and Obamacare (the new healthcare system) and saying that he doesn’t know what American women need/want.

It’s funny because most women are happy with how Obamacare makes most women’s health checks/treatments/prescriptions free or at least very cheap… meaning that it’s the Republican party that doesn’t know what American women want/need, which is what the sarcastic satire was pointing out. 

I don’t really know how to explain it other than that, see the whole video here

”You don’t need to be in the pew every Sunday to know there’s something wrong in this country when gays can serve openly in the military but our kids can’t openly celebrate Christmas or pray in school.” 
You can rarely call a male “Dumb Bitch” and this is that rare occasion.

Last week Luis Lang was in a pickle. His diabetes was threatening his eyesight, he missed the enrollment period for the Affordable Care Act and his state lawmakers blocked the Medicaid expansion in South Carolina.

After liberals dug into their pockets to help him with his medical bills to save his eyesight (and left many comments encouraging him to see the light), Lang admits that hindsight is 20/20. He had some choice words for Republicans in a recent interview with ThinkProgress.

In an interview with ThinkProgress, Lang joked that he might be the most hated Republican in the country right now. But he also said that, thanks in part to a flood of media attention that led him to learn more about health care policy, he doesn’t identify with the GOP anymore.

Now that I’m looking at what each party represents, my wife and I are both saying — hey, we’re not Republicans!” Lang said. He added that, though he’s not a political person by nature and has never voted solely along party lines, he wants to rip up his voter registration card on national television so Americans will have proof that he’s making the switch.

House Republicans Shoot Down Added Rail Funding Just Hours After Deadly Amtrak Crash

Hours after the Amtrak crash that left at least seven people dead on the Northeast Corridor, House Republicans shot down additional funding for our nation’s ailing railways.

Advocates of a proposal that would have increased funding for railway infrastructure thought the measure crucial to rail safety, while Republicans continued their stance that Amtrak should move away from public funding.…

Can we all get behind Bernie Sanders 2k16 like we rallied for Obama in 08. Like FOR REAL FAH REAL. I’m not kidding this dude is the real deal if we want to see POSITIVE change in america, not more of the same bullshit…

“Asked to explain why they’re running for president, mainstream candidates often retreat into safe, Hallmark-card platitudes. Sanders, by contrast, told Stephanopoulos, “I’m the only candidate who is prepared to take on billionaire class which controls our economy and increasingly controls the political life of this country.” When Sanders said Scandinavia best exemplifies his brand of democratic socialism, Stephanopoulos tried to brush him back: “I can hear the Republican attack ad right now: He wants America to be look more like Scandinavia.” But Sanders was not cowed. “That’s right. That’s right,” the Vermont senator replied. “And what’s wrong with that? What’s wrong when you have more income and wealth equality? What’s wrong when they have a stronger middle class in many ways than we do?””

What I imagine republican ads are like:

Peter King: Rand Paul And Ted Cruz "Appeal To Lowest Common Denominator"

Who’s the worst Republican presidential candidate according to King? Paul and Cruz!

w.soundcloud.com

Rep. Peter King says Rand Paul and Ted Cruz are in a “race to the bottom” of the Republican field. King, the Long island Republican who said he’ll decided whether to run for president in “next month or so” said the pair appeal to the “lowest common denominator.”

“I’d say it’s a race to the bottom between Ted Cruz and Rand Paul,” said King, asked who the worst Republican candidate was, adding that he judged them on “their policies, and also how they’d do in the general election.”

“They both appeal to the lowest common denominator,” he said.

King said he was bothered most by Paul’s foreign policy.

“Starting with Rand Paul, I would say that — well, you asked me the thing that bothers me the most — I would say that he has this ‘blame America’ foreign policy, talking about America being an imperial power,” said King.

King called the Kentucky senator’s filibuster a waste of time.

“I mean, to actually waste 23 hours — I don’t know how many hours his filibuster was on the House floor, about drones — I mean, he’s really worried about CIA killing an American drinking coffee at Starbucks? You know, the enemy is al-Qaeda, and that to me is just creating unnecessary fears in people, and such a distortion.”

“For him to say that Gen. Clapper belongs in jail, with Snowden, and to be saying anything good about Snowden at all — here’s a guy who has put so many American lives at risk. And basically, I would say it’s this moral equivalency he shows between the CIA and the NSA on the one hand, and the enemies of America on the other hand — to me, this is a Charles Lindbergh isolationism of the 1930s.”

Turning to Cruz, Peter King said he was bothered most by Cruz’s “irresponsibility” relating to the 2013 government shutdown.

“As for Ted Cruz, I would say it’s the irresponsibility, going back to when he brought about the government shutdown in 2013, on the funding of Obamacare,” said King. “Somehow he got people in the House to go along with that, then when it came to the Senate he admitted he had no answer to it. So you have the government shut down, there was no way out of it other than to re-open the government, at a loss of revenue to the government.”

King added he “no idea” why House Republicans listened to Cruz on shutting down the government.

“People at a — again, causing Republicans, from a political perspective, our numbers dropped so dramatically during that time. And it was all because of him, with this totally false narrative of his that if the House just shut down the government over Obamacare, he’d be able to take care of it in the Senate. And why people listened to him, why they followed him over the cliff, I have no idea.”

Now, as Hillary Rodham Clinton embarks on her second presidential bid, Mr. Blumenthal’s service to the Clintons is again under the spotlight. Representative Trey Gowdy of South Carolina, a Republican who is leading the congressional committee investigating the 2012 attacks in Benghazi, Libya, plans to subpoena Mr. Blumenthal, 66, for a private transcribed interview.

Mr. Gowdy’s chief interest, according to people briefed on the inquiry, is a series of memos that Mr. Blumenthal — who was not an employee of the State Department — wrote to Mrs. Clinton about events unfolding in Libya before and after the death of Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi. According to emails obtained by The New York Times, Mrs. Clinton, who was secretary of state at the time, took Mr. Blumenthal’s advice seriously, forwarding his memos to senior diplomatic officials in Libya and Washington and at times asking them to respond. Mrs. Clinton continued to pass around his memos even after other senior diplomats concluded that Mr. Blumenthal’s assessments were often unreliable.

The Republican Party’s most vocal defender of the Duck Dynasty family looks to build his presidential campaign around religious liberty.

youtube.com

With a new political ad airing this week in Iowa, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal is informally kicking off his bid for the Republican presidential nomination by casting himself as the conservative movement’s leading voice in the culture war battle over religious freedom.

The ad, which was previewed for some news outlets including BuzzFeed News, features Jindal rhapsodizing — in his signature rapid-fire twang — about the sacred need to protect religious believers’ « freedom of conscience, » which he argues « must, in no way, ever be linked to the ever-changing opinions of the public. » It concludes with a line that has become a mainstay of his recent speeches and interviews: « The United States of America did not create religious liberty. Religious liberty created the United States of America. »

In keeping with what is bound to be a relatively low-budget, scrappy campaign operation at the outset, Jindal’s ad doesn’t have much money behind it. According to an operative at The American Future Project — the pro-Jindal advocacy group launching the ad — the commercial is debuting in Iowa with a « five-figure ad buy, » meaning the organization spent somewhere between $10,000 and $99,000 to get it on the air. It will appear on cable and online and it will run for one week, according to the group.

But the ad’s focus highlights a key plank in the Jindal camp’s strategy to propel the conservative governor — currently polling in the low single digits — to the top tier of the Republican field. If Jindal can « own » the issue of religious freedom, his aides say, they believe he can build enough grassroots momentum among conservative Christians to break out in Iowa’s first-in-the-nation caucuses next year.

« The issue is very topical right now and I suspect it will be for quite some time, » said one senior Jindal adviser, adding, « I think he understands this issue far beyond just the standard talking points. »

Jindal has been out front in the religious freedom debate ever since December 2013, when Phil Robertson, the bearded family patriarch in A&E’s hit reality show Duck Dynasty, came under fire for the crude quotes he gave to GQ about homosexuality. After the cable network, facing boycott threats, announced it was suspending Robertson, Jindal rushed to his defense. Though often a punchline in secular political and media circles, Duck Dynasty — with its overt emphasis on Christian faith and family values — is hugely popular among religious conservatives in middle America. It also happens to be filmed in Jindal’s home state of Louisiana.

Jindal became the first politician to publicly back up Robertson, quickly releasing a statement that read, in part, « The politically correct crowd is tolerant of all viewpoints, except those they disagree with…. It is a messed up situation when Miley Cyrus gets a laugh, and Phil Robertson gets suspended. »

Since becoming the face of the Robertsons’ conservative booster club, Jindal has set about expanding his religious freedom argument, speaking out forcefully in numerous public settings against legal compulsion for religious bakers and wedding photographers to participate in same-sex ceremonies, and condemning liberals who he says are trying to bully conservative people of faith like the Robertsons into submission or silence.

Jindal’s argument hasn’t always gotten through to the political class, where he is often viewed as a third-tier 2016 prospect prone to pandering. Last month, in a New York Times op-ed, he framed the debate over controversial religious freedom laws like the one in Indiana as a battle between conservatives and an unholy alliance of social progressives and big business. It was a uniquely populist pitch — aimed not just at social conservatives, but also blue-collar workers and middle-class Republicans who have little respect for the billionaires in their party’s business wing — but the point was largely lost to the news media, thanks in part to the Times’ headline: « Bobby Jindal: I’m Holding Firm Against Gay Marriage. »

But Jindal’s team believes his argument will resonate with the conservative grassroots — even as he competes for their votes with rivals like Sen. Ted Cruz and former Gov. Mike Huckabee. Jindal’s advisers point to a speech he gave early last year at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library, in which he warned that Americans were mired in a « silent war » that would grow more intense as « the Obama regime » sought to transform the country into « a land where faith is silenced, privatized, and circumscribed. »

Jindal’s campaign is likely to be built on similarly provocative rhetoric. When The American Future Project sent its ad to reporters, it was accompanied by a quote from the group’s spokesman Henry Goodwin, who said of the governor’s speech, « Now, that prophesy has become reality. »

DEMS DEMAND RACIST GENOCIDE, FURIOUS ABOUT HOUSE ABORTION RESTRICTING BILL #o4a #news #Right2Life

Mr Americana, Overpasses News Desk
May 18th, 2015
Overpasses For America
VIA CNS NEWS


Pro-abortion groups are angry about the passage of H.R. 36, the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which would put a national ban on most abortions after 20 weeks gestation except in the cases of rape, incest or when the mother’s life is threatened.

“Plain and simple – when politicians introduce inhumane bans on abortions, they are tying the hands of physicians who want to help couples going through heartbreaking situations like serious fetal anomalies,” Shaunna Thomas, co-founder of the liberal activist website UltraViolet, said in a press release, adding that Republicans want to “criminalize women’s reproductive choices.”

“Americans have said time and again that they don’t want politicians inserting themselves in vital reproductive- health care decisions,” Ilyse Hogue, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America said in a last-minute press release from pro-abortion groups to express opposition to the bill, which passed on Wednesday by a 242-184 vote in the House of Representatives. “The audacity of anti-choice politicians in trying to pass a bill so harmful to women’s health during Women’s Health Week is appalling.”

“At Planned Parenthood Action Fund, our top priority is to make sure that every woman can make her own medical decision and has access to high-quality health care,” Cecile Richards, president of the Planned Parenthood Action Fund, said in a statement, noting that late-term abortions are “extremely rare.”

“This bill is really part of a much bigger agenda to ban abortion completely, which the American public overwhelmingly opposes,” said Richards, who is also president of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, which through its affiliated clinics performed 327,653 abortions in 2013-2014 according to its annual report.

“When Republicans try to restrict women’s access to abortion, it shows just how out of touch they are with mainstream American values,” Becky Bond, political director at CREDO Action, said in a statement. “Americans overwhelmingly believe in equality and freedom for women and that includes the freedom to choose.”

After the bill was passed, NARAL issued a statement, accusing Republicans of pandering “to their far-right wing base.”

As CNSNews.com reported earlier, H.R. 36 requires doctors performing an abortion for a rape or incest victim to “do so only in the manner which, in reasonable medical judgment, provides the best opportunity for the unborn child to survive.”

The only exception to this requirement, the bill states, is if attempting to save the baby during an abortion would result in “the death of the pregnant woman” or the substantial and irreversible physical impairment of a major bodily function, not including psychological or emotional conditions, of the pregnant woman.”



The bill also requires that a “physician trained in neonatal resuscitation be present if, in reasonable medical judgment, the pain-capable unborn child has the potential to survive outside the womb.”



The bill also makes some revisions to the earlier version’s rape exceptions, which required the woman to report the rape to law enforcement before seeking an abortion after 20 weeks. The amended bill still places the same requirements on minors who become pregnant as the result of a rape, but allows an adult woman to receive an abortion after 20 weeks if she reported the rape, or has received medical treatment or counseling at least 48 hours prior to the abortion being performed.
