Oprah Plays Race Card

It’s racism that’s causing President Obama to fail. That’s the sentiment of one of the country’s richest people–Oprah Winfrey. In a recent interview across the pond, Winfrey told the BBC that there is a heightened level of disrespect for the office of the president and President Obama himself, because he’s African American. The comments struck a nerve with Alfonzo Rachel, who said, “The race card is the card of the cowardly. They’re too afraid to admit they failed, and they protect themselves by accusing people of being racist. That way they can deny their failure. And like I said before, when I think racism, I don’t think white people or Southerners, I think Democrats.” Check out this edition of “ZoNation,” as Rachel elaborates on why the Democrat Party is the oldest hate group in the country.

The Reality of Obamacare

As the Affordable Care Act fiasco continues to multiply with insurance cancellations, a glitch-infested website and a continuous string of  lies from the Obama administration, PJ Media’s Bill Whittle weighs in with his assessment of the disaster with what he describes is “The Hammer of Reality.” Whittle says, “The Hammer of Reality is a great friend and a terrible foes. Reality, you see, says that health care is not, in fact, free. It’s a commodity. It’s something that’s bought and sold the same way the Democratic Party buys and sells votes. And if you’re going to expand coverage to people who do not have it, and increase the scope of that coverage and also destroy the entire idea of actuarial tables with pre-existing condition exemptions, well, that’s going to cost money.” Join Whittle in this edition of “Afterburner,” as he roots out the problems associated with Obamacare.
