Poindexter Responds to Governor McAuliffe Visit, Obamacare Expansion in
GLADE HILL, VA - Today,
Governor McAuliffe continued his political campaign tour across the Commonwealth
trying to gain support for his administration's number one priority and sole
focus since taking office: expanding Obamacare in Virginia.
"I'm not surprised Governor McAuliffe
is out on the campaign trail again. A Quinnipiac University poll released on
Wednesday showed only 4% of Virginian's agree with McAuliffe that Medicaid
expansion is a top priority. I think he's starting to realize he's out on his
own tree limb here and now he's trying to pull everyone else out there with
"Virginia's current Medicaid program is in desperate need of
reforms to improve health outcomes and make the program more fiscally
sustainable. Obamacare is a train wreck and more than half of Virginian's
oppose the law. Why would we just go along with expansion without asking any
questions, without making any reforms, and without assurances the federal
government will pay their share? This proposal has enormous fiscal
ramifications for Virginia, for our core programs like education and public
safety, and for taxpayers. It's not something I take lightly and I think the
Governor should recognize this.
"My position on Obamacare is clear. I believe reforms should
come first and I am skeptical of Washington's ability and willingness to pay its
share of the cost. I believe the Medicaid Innovation and Reform Commission, on
which I serve, is the right vehicle for these reforms.
"It's time for Governor McAuliffe to drop his demands for
Obamacare expansion and stop using our teachers, students, and local governments
as bargaining chips. It is critical the General Assembly pass a clean budget as
soon as possible. Then, if the Governor would like to call a special session
for Obamacare expansion, I'll gladly debate the issue on its own merits.
Obama dismisses Russia as
‘regional power’ acting out of weakness
Why is Obama mocking Russia and Putin, goading him into additional
annexation of Ukraine
territory and people?
Russia weak? They
have enough multi-warhead H-Bombs mounted on intercontinental missiles that can
totally and completely destroy the United States should they chose to
do so! Does that sound weak to you?
Latest US intel: More indications than ever Russia could invade Ukraine
Rep. Michael Turner, R-Ohio,
claimed Thursday that the number could be as high as 80,000. It is believed
that an additional 50,000 troops may have flooded the region in the last few
Does 5 Divisions of Combat Troops look weak to you?
Does any of this sound like Russia and Putin are acting out of
The Obama response: You
Russians can’t come to our G-7/8 Meeting and we’re going to “do something mean”
to the top Russian officials we think are supporting Putin. And we’re also giving the Ukrainian military MRE’s
(meals ready to eat)! Really? You can’t
make this stuff up!
And now we’re going to send
money to Ukraine to help them buy Russian fuel from Russia at exorbitant increased prices;
and when we’ve paid for that we’re going to pay Russia millions more to ride on
their rockets to the space platform. And
Obama is then going to send US
gas and oil from the Fracking being done on private lands in defiance of Obama’s
EPA thugs. How the hell did we get into
this situation? Just how much Hope and
Change can we stand?
Clearly Obama is Delusional And
Dysfunctional and has no idea what to say or do? So then he said he’s worried about an “A-Bomb
going off in Manhattan! That should make Chuck Schumer and all the
other NY Democrats cringe and ask “are you safer now than you were 5 years ago”?
It is difficult to
comprehend how far we have fallen in such a short time!
But the Pravda Press just keeps singing "Hail to the Chief" all day every day!
The Audacity of Appeasement
Joe Biden to Russia: US will
Europe, Biden finds uncertain allies
“President Obama and I view
Article 5 of the NATO Treaty as an absolutely solemn commitment which we will
honor,” Biden said in an appearance with Estonian President Toomas Hendrik
“But having to deliver the message at all is a
measure of how uncertain Eastern Europe remains as it confronts an expansionist
- and how uncertain many leaders here are of the Obama administration’s
intentions to help.”
Those who pound their swords into plows
The most amazing Obama position during this crisis is refusal to send military
supplies to Ukraine
because it would further encourage Putin-Russia to invade further!
Really? Let’s not give the police any
more guns because it will cause the bad guys to kill more cops! This is the hope and change we can believe
Didn’t Obama just direct that all our A10 Warthog Tank Killer planes to be
“Poland easing regulations
to allow faster development of its shale gas to future European pipelines that
would lessen reliance on Russia’s. Beyond reiterating a previous pledge to
liquefied natural gas exports to the region, Biden offered ideas, future
technical support and encouragement.”
Central European nations appeal to Congress for faster exports of US natural gas
And now we’re talking about sending fossil
fuels to Eastern European Countries?
Is Obama not shutting down fossil fuel power plans as fast as he can? Are he and his minions not fighting fracking
as much as they can?
Why isn’t he sending solar panels and windmills?
will plow for those who didn’t!
Did not John Kerry declare that Fossil-Fuel Global Warming AGW is the most imminent
WMD in the world? Did Harry Reid’s
minions in the Senate not spend a day lamenting Man-made Global Warming
AGW? These are our national leaders?
And what an appropriate time to reflect
on Obama’s mocking of Romney during the debates for his distrust of Russia and

GM tries to tackle mounting recall crisis
The automotive giant appointed a new safety chief while the
CEO apologized for lives lost.
Feds reportedly failed to investigate reports of GM vehicle shutdowns
Obama has used government assets to spy-upon and harass his
so called political enemies including conservative persons and groups.
He has also used and is using government assets to harass
his so called economic enemies including the fossil fuel industry, Boeing,
Right-to-Work and the non-GM auto industry.
Obama set his NTSB upon Toyota
as if the Japanese had launched another Pearl Harbor.
Much of this attack upon Toyota was to the direct advantage of GM.
This effort was blunted when Toyota produced “black box” data that clearly
demonstrated that for most run-away cars the driver was on the gas-pedal and
NOT on the brake. Not quite as enlightening
as Monica’s dress – but pretty close.
Now we find out that Obama has had his minions in the NTSB
look the other way and did not monitor or investigate nor demand massive
recalls or levy massive fines due to serious GM safety issues; They were much too busy following Toyota around!
Even our local folks at the RT were eager to telegraph and
hype the Obama propaganda.
Just More Hope and Change You Can Believe In with the full
support of his Pravda Media.

3-11-2014, Pg 1, 3: General’s court-martial is thrown into jeopardy
Obama’s Army Command is hard at work prosecuting a General
for sexual harassment and sexual abuse and maybe even rape of a female Army
Not clear how this would play-out if it were a male Army Captain.
All this while members of Congress have been wrestling with
how the Uniform Code of Military Justice handles these types of cases.
Not mentioned anywhere is how this case relates to Commander-In-Chief
Bill Clinton and the fact that he abused many women, many coerced into his den
and clutches by police officers.
Don’t remember any criminal trials being held based on those
There was political civil actions taken, but that was for
lying about the incidents.
Given that Bill Clinton is one of the most popular and
revered Democrats in America
it’s difficult to understand why this General is being persecuted for the very same
Perhaps it’s time for Hillary, The NOW Girls, the DNC and
the Liberal Press to come to the Generals defense just as they have for Bill!
