The President´s Tax Bludgeon
Wall Street Journal, by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 11/10/2012 10:19:07 AM

If that was an olive branch, we´d hate to see the bludgeon. We´re referring to President Obama´s appearance on Friday in the White House East Room, his first public remarks since his re-election Tuesday. If the President wanted to send a gesture of magnanimity in victory, this wasn´t it. Though the campaign is over, the event was staged like a campaign event, complete with a multi-ethnic backdrop for the cameras, a cheering crowd and no media questions. The President said he is "open to compromise" and isn´t "wedded to every detail" of his budget proposals

Maybe the mandatory spending cuts should be allowed to go forward. This appears to be the only way to control the growth of government.

The WSJ doesn´t get it. Obama doesn´t need a certain level of economic growth to succeed in his second term, because his definition of success is something never seen before in American politics.

Does Kim Jong What´s-His-Name in North Korea give one rat´s petoot about economic growth? Of course not. As long as he can own his people through intimidation and dependency he and his have got it made.

Obama is cut of the same cloth. He´ll sometimes have to soften his rhetoric and keep up the facade of co-equal branches of government in order to keep the boobs sedated, but hey - that´s just all in the life of a nascent dictator.

I DONT CARE about rich peoples taxes. Sure it will hurt the entire economy. But, ENERGY SUICIDE and unilater reduction of the nuclear arsenal to 400 bombs is much, much more important.

He behaves like the dictator that he is; those who love him think that he is leading them to glory; just wait until they get the bill. The bill will either come in higher taxes or massive inflation, but they will pay one way or the other. Sadly, so will we who didn´t vote for him.

Eight of the top ten richest counties in the US voted for Obama. Let them pay.

I live in a wealthy area, and we did go for Obama by about a thousand votes. But we voted against every tax-raising proposition on the ballot, including the vaunted prop 30 (for the schoooooools). We voted for prop 32 (bans using public employee union dues for political campaign donations) and we lost that one too.

I think we´re at the point where our best defense is to go underground and allow the thief in chief to get most of the things he wants. Then we have to make sure he gets the credit for all he´s done -- that´s the real fight. Saddle the Democrats with him and his entire administration. The press is crowing right now, because they proved they are not dead or dying. But they can sink with him like a millstone around their necks.

Maybe it´s just me, but I detect Obama being in a quandary.
He´s been able to sell his lies without any media fact checking or opposition. But telling lies and living lies are two different things. Obama saw the possibility of being defeated in this election and planned for the implementation of his policies to begin after the election. Someone else was going to have to live with them or change them.
Now, it´s him that going to have to live with them and answer for all the lies he told; and there´s going to be some irate Americans looking to him for an explaination. This time, Bush can´t be blamed for his tax increased, his healthcare and his pandering to evil nations. It´s him only and this will be his America. When it goes belly up, he will be the fall guy and he knows it. He created this pile of crap and now he´s going to have to lie in it.

From my perspective, we couldn´t have had a worse pResident than Teleprompter for the last four years. "No excuses, you´re fired" should have been the response. If you´ve ever managed anybody, you know that there are always plausible excuses, but at some point lack of success deserves firing.

So, I don´t know who will judge the success or failure of his second term. The mainstream media will never hold him accountable. His followers won´t either.

Or perhaps, if things get bad enough, these followers will start paying attention and thinking a little as to the source of their pain.

I don´t know. I don´t think he´s going to have a successful term gauged by historical values. I suspect teleprompter care will come in for a landing like a dirigible- not very graceful, and that it may become clear why it is unwise to cram down major legislation on narrow majorities.

Here we go!!

I saw my first Hillary sticker on the Lexus in front of me at the Taco Bell today. Just had to see the driver. It was a (past) middle-aged woman with a (very unflattering) long gray bob hair style stuffing a gordito into her mouth. It´s already begun my friends. Here´s the thing, Obama can be as fiscally irresponsible as he wants to be and the left won´t stop him. They want Hillary in 2016 and she, unlike him, knows how to move to the right to heal the country and get those people back to work. She also knows how to pander to the vagina brigade (I suspect my friend in the Lexus is one of those uber wealthy women who just loves her power over her privates). If I were him, I´d keep my eye on Hillary once she steps down in 2013. She and her husband are not going away until the undertaker carries them out.

Higher taxes for the rich? Who do these freaks think creates meaningful jobs? The poor? Frankly, I´ve never known a poor person to provide a job for anyone unless it´s using their EBT card for drugs, booze, cigs, jewelry stores, tattoo parlors, casinos, etc. If that´s what you think creates meaningful jobs, good luck to you.

USAID documents cite Hillary
Clinton in chaos of Afghan aid
Washington Times, by Guy Taylor    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/20/2014 10:21:24 PM     Post Reply
In internal government documents with potential repercussions for the 2016 presidential election, top officials at the U.S. Agency for International Development repeatedly cited former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton for setting into motion a policy to waive restrictions on who could receive U.S. aid in Afghanistan, resulting in millions of dollars in U.S. funds going directly into the coffers of Afghan ministries known to be rife with corruption. References to Mrs. Clinton’s role in the policy first appeared in a November 2012 USAID action memo, which outlined how U.S. officials made a “strategic foreign-assistance

As ‘Meet the Press’ struggles in

If “Meet the Press” moderator David Gregory were a guest on his own show, he knows the kinds of questions he’d be asked. Why have your ratings been falling? Is the show in trouble? Is your job in trouble? “I get it,” says Gregory, the face of the longest-running TV program in American history (founded: 1947). “Do I want to be number one in the ratings? Every week I want to be number one, and we fight like hell to get there. And it’s tough right now. It’s a fight.” He adds, “I’m not just trying to sell you — well, I am trying to sell you — but I’m not going to B.S. you, either. Yeah, it’s hard. I see what our challenges are.

Long-term unemployed struggle
to find — and keep — jobs
Washington Post, by Ylan Q. Mui    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/18/2014 10:37:47 PM     Post Reply
For the long-term unemployed, finding a job is hard — but keeping one may be even harder. New research tracking people who have been out of work for six months or longer found that 23 percent of them landed a job within a few months of the study. But a year later, more than a third of that group was unemployed again or out of the labor force altogether. The findings are the latest in a bleak but growing body of literature suggesting long-term unemployment has become a trap that is difficult to escape. Economists say that means the long-term unemployed could become a permanent underclass, left behind by the nation’s broader

Social Security stops trying

seizing tax refunds
Washington Post, by Marc Fisher    Original Article

The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

Wendy Davis Ethical Questions Surface
Breitbart Texas, by Bob Price    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/14/2014 8:58:53 AM     Post Reply
Despite promises to the contrary, it appears that State Senator Wendy Davis (D-Fort Worth) voted on bills that affect her clients and favorably impact the bottom line of her law firm. “I have never done anything in a way that represents a conflict in my voting and something that would benefit me personally,” she said in an interview, but state records seem to tell a different story. The Dallas Morning News´ Senior Political Writer Wayne Slater (DMN) reported that Davis supported legislation governing a toll road project. That would be all well and good except for the fact that the

Democrats Lose Two More Special
Elections They Didn’t Expect To
National Review Online, by John Fund    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/14/2014 8:38:34 AM     Post Reply
Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Nevada ranch standoff could leave
dirt on Harry Reid’s reputation

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

   

 



 
White House asks American parents to

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like
