Welcome to Tennessee, Now Show Us Your Papers!

This video is worth 12 minutes of your time.

Here are your rights as an American citizen.

The Fourth Amendment

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

Definition from Nolo’s Plain-English Law Dictionary

A search and seizure by a law enforcement officer without a search warrant and without probable cause to believe that evidence of a crime is present. Such a search or seizure is unconstitutional under the Fourth Amendment (applied to the states by the Fourteenth Amendment), and evidence obtained from the unlawful search may not be introduced in court.

Not only does the Tennessee Highway Patrol not understand the Fourth Amendment, they can’t even figure out why they’re hassling this guy who’s just trying to get from point A to point B.

This is a telling exchange.

Citizen: What am I being arrested for, sir?

Officer: Well sir, like we told you back there man, you’re being arrested for not showing us a driver’s license.

Citizen: You can’t arrest me for not showing a driver’s license.

Officer: Yes we can, sir.

Citizen: I thought I was being charged for not having a license.

Officer: That’s what I just said.

I look forward to finding out more about this case. The man driving the Jeep specifically said he did not consent to a search – and then the police searched his Jeep. I’d like to know if they had a warrant, or if they granted themselves an exception from following the law. Because apparently in Tennessee, the State Patrol is above the law?

This is a shameful way for police officers to behave, especially when this kind of thing has already been ruled unconstitutional by the Tennessee Supreme Court.

If you’d like to reach out to the Tennessee State Highway Patrol, this is the man driving that clown car.

Feel free to demand his license.

Covered California Sends Out Voter Registration Cards Pre-Marked “Democrat” (Video)

Shocked.

Shocked, I tell you:

Here’s the part I love:

10News shared what was sent with Covered California.

Spokeswoman Anne Gonzales stated, “We are mailing voter registration material. However, the application forms come directly from the Secretary of State’s office, with no fields pre-marked. The individual should contact the Secretary of State, which takes these violations of election law extremely seriously, and they will investigate, using the unique serial number.”

The couple says they did reach out to the Secretary of State’s office and could not get a hold of anyone. They also say they reached out to the San Diego County Registrar of Voters, which told them to contact Covered California.

Nobody knows anything.

I want to know if there is anyone else who received something like this. It’s suspect if it was just this one couple.

Republicans “could have as much as a 4 in 5 chance of controlling the Senate” After Midterms

And then I said, "You're not unemployed.  You're a 'free agent.'"

And then I said, “You’re not unemployed. You’re a ‘free agent.’”

It’s just a model, but it’s good news:

As we have begun to incorporate candidate experience into the model, our initial sense is this: Republicans may have a far better chance of winning control of the Senate than we or other analysts previously thought. Here is a preliminary estimate: The GOP could have as much as a 4 in 5 chance of controlling the chamber.

Of course, it could be a way of rallying the Dem base, who need to turn out if they want to keep Harry Reid in control of the Senate.

Because if the Republicans control both the House and the Senate, there’s no way Obama can blame the do nothing Congress. It will be him standing in the way.

Of course, it would take an unbiased media to report that, but it will be harder for them to cover for Obama than it is now.

Heh: Sebelius Mum After Reporter Tells Her 64% of Oklahomas Aren’t Buying Into Obamacare (Video)

After being told 64 percent of Oklahomas weren’t signing up and flat out disliked Obamacare, Sec. Kathleen Sebelius just sat in silence until the reporter started talking again, thinking audio must have been lost:

Sebelius sat in silently for eight second until the anchor awkwardly spoke up.

“All right, Secretary Sebelius, thanks so much for being with us this morning,” he said. “I think we’ve probably lost sound here, or something.”

Well, I can hear you,” Sebelius replied. “Thanks for having me.”

That’s a change. Usually people sit in slack-jawed wonder at the things that come out of her mouth.

This time, she was the one surprised.

Politico Gives Obamacare Enrollment “A-,” Meanwhile, Only 1.7% of Uninsured Get Covered

The proxy White House communications staff at the Politico gave the enrollment in Obamacare and A-.

Nevermind the fact that no one knows exactly how many people have bought a policy and the White House is counting what people have put in their shopping cart.

No, this whole thing was near perfect:

This praise from Politico is in sharp contrast to public support of the ACA which is now at an all-time low. A new poll by the AP and GfK polling shows that public support for Obamacare has plummeted to 26 percent favorable.

Obamacare was even ridiculed by several floats during New Orleans Mardi Gras parades.

Among other categories, Nather gave Obamacare an “A-” for its success at public enrollment. By his own admission, Obama originally said he needed seven million enrollees – and didn’t get them, claiming six million on Thursday of this week. He also said he needed 38 percent of enrollees to be young people so that the system wouldn’t financially collapse – and didn’t get them. Politico does not worry about any of that.

Worse, Nather glosses over the fact that this six-million signup claim may be utterly meaningless because there is no indication that all six million actually took possession of and paid for their first insurance policy premium. So, the six million claim is more like six million saying they intend to get insurance, not six million actually getting insurance.

And let’s not forget that the whole reason for passing Obamacare was to get the uninsured covered.

How’s that working out?

The White House now claims an Obamacare enrollment figure of six million people. However, according to The New York Times, at least 20% of those never paid their premiums to activate coverage, leaving them uninsured. That drops the number down to 4.8 million.

Next, as Washington Post columnist Ed Rogers notes, “the official HHS numbers still include duplicate enrollments.” No one knows how many duplicate enrollments are in the stack; the White House refuses to say. However, given the disastrous Obamacare website failures, it is reasonable to imagine that the pile is riddled with numerous “false start” applications.

That leaves the most important question: How many people are gaining insurance who were previously uninsured? After all, that was the stated reason for Obamacare in the first place. McKinsey & Co. says that only 27% of those who have picked a plan through Obamacare were previously uninsured.

Moreover, McKinsey says these individuals have an unusually high rate of failing to pay their first month’s premium. “Only 53 percent of them had paid their first premium, compared with 86 percent of the previously insured,” reports CNBC.

Even conceding the White House its alleged six million enrollment figure (which, again, includes duplicates and incomplete applications), that would mean that just 810,000 of paying Obamacare customers were previously uninsured, a figure that represents 1.7% of America’s 48.6 million uninsured people.

Some would think this is a failure.

Not me.

I think:

theplan

 

Remember, this was never supposed to be the answer.  The end game is single payer.

You can’t get there is Obamacare solves all the problems.

RI Dem State Senator to 2nd Amendment Supporter: “Go F*** Yourself.” (Video)

Granted, this is InfoWars, so who knows what happened before hand, but the video is clear. Rhode Island State Senator Josh Miller looks directly at the man, leans into the mic and says, “Go f*** yourself” after the man said, “The Second Amendment shall not be infringed, you people need to understand that.”

See it for yourself:

Here’s his Facebook page.

He’s apologized:

Elitist: Iowa Dem Calls Grassley “A Farmer From Iowa Who Never Went to Law School.” (Video)

Remember, Democrats speak for the poor and the middle class, as long as they’re not farmers:

Braley says in the video, apparently to a room of trial lawyers in at a fundraiser in Texas: “To put this in stark contrast, if you help me win this race, you may have someone with your background, your experience, your voice, someone’s who’s been literally fighting tort reform for 30 years in a visible and public way on the Senate Judiciary Committee or you might have a farmer from Iowa who never went to law school, never practiced law, serving as the next chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee. Because if Democrats lose the majority, Chuck Grassley will be the next chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee.”

When you think of Iowa, who do you think better represents the state: an arrogant, elitist trial lawyer, or a farmer who’s never been to law school?

Yeah, me too.
