Appearing on “The Kelly File” Tuesday night, Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) delivered a defiant message to MIT professor Jonathan Gruber, the Obamacare “architect” who said in 2013 that a lack of transparency and the “stupidity of the American voter” helped get the law through Congress.
“You want to see how stupid our fellow citizens are? Take a look at last Tuesday night,” Gowdy said, referring to the sweeping GOP victories in the midterm elections. “Because they rejected you, this bill and this administration.”
Host Megyn Kelly said even though Gruber thinks he “pulled the wool” over the American people’s eyes, voters have been skeptical of the law from the beginning and never fell for what the administration was selling with Obamacare.
“This law has never had the majority of support of the American people,” she added. “And yet, it is on the books. They are stuck with it.”

Army Cuts Hit Officers Hard, Especially Ones Up From Ranks
Forced to retire after 20 years of Army service, Capt. Elder Saintjuste, in Hope Mills, N.C., will receive a sergeant’s pension
FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. — For all the insecurities of war, Capt. Elder Saintjuste always figured the one thing he could count on from the Army was job security.
A Haitian immigrant who enlisted as a teenager, he deployed three times to Iraq, missing so many birthdays and Christmases that he sometimes felt he barely knew his four children. He hid symptoms of post-traumatic stress so he could stay in the Army, because he loved his job and believed that after 20 years he could retire with a captain’s pension.
Then this summer, on the day Captain Saintjuste reached his 20 years, the Army told him that as part of the postwar downsizing of the force he would have to retire…

Professor Jonathan Gruber of MIT, who designed the Affordable Care Act, used to be the symbol of the Democrats’ technocratic bona fides, and an example of how big government with its “scientific” experts can solve social and economic problems from health care to a warming planet. Yet a recently publicized video of remarks he made at a panel in 2013, along with 2 other videos in the same vein, has now made him the poster child of the elitist progressives’ contempt for the American people, and their sacrifice of prudence and reason to raw political power.
In the video Gruber explains the spin and lies the Dems used to give cover to their Congressmen so they could vote for Obamacare. Especially important was avoiding the “t-word.” So, Gruber crows on the video, “This bill was written in a tortured way to make sure [the Congressional

The same violent protesters in Ferguson, Missouri demonstrating against the killing of Michael Brown have also been taking it to the streets in Detroit and elsewhere to press for the release of a Palestinian terrorist who killed two Israelis.
Activists are blackmailing the grand jury that is now hearing evidence against Wilson. If the grand jurors refuse to indict Wilson, radical activists are promising even more mayhem. The message is unmistakable: indict the cop, and there will be peace; don’t, and Ferguson will burn.
Brown is the young, black, 6’4″, 292-pound man who was killed by white police officer Darren Wilson on Aug. 9. When media outlets describe Brown they usually omit the fact that he viciously assaulted Brown and tried to seize his handgun, presumably in an effort to do the officer harm. Journalists also tend to downplay the fact that minutes before Brown attacked Wilson he robbed a…

ABC, CBS, and NBC’s evening newscasts on Wednesday glossed over the radical left-wing ideology of the Turkish protesters who assaulted three U.S. sailors in Istanbul earlier in the day. ABC’s Martha Raddatz reported that the “the attackers [are] members of an ultra-nationalist group called the Turkish Youth Union, angry at what it calls ‘American imperialism.'” NBC’s Brian Williams underlined that “these were apparently the actions of a fringe group

Democrats will go after dog-fighters, spouse and child-abusers in sports. But when it comes to politics, Democrats look the other way.
The NAACP did exactly that, as they came to the aid of woman-beater Carlos Henriquez.
You likely don’t know who Carlos Henriquez is, but he is the son of the Assistant Secretary for Public and Indian Housing for the Obama administration. Henriquez ran for the Massachusetts House of Representatives in 2012. However, five months before the election in July of 2012, Henriquez was charged with kidnapping and assault of a woman.
In Sept the kidnapping charge was dropped; but the other charges remained pending through the election.
