Obama Warns Of A ´Scrooge
Christmas´ If Fiscal Cliff
Deal Doesn´t Get Done

Business Insider, by Brett LoGiurato

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 11/30/2012 1:11:07 PM

President Barack Obama gave remarks on the looming "fiscal cliff" at a manufacturing facility in Pennsylvania, the same day Republicans are panning his initial offer. Obama spoke after touring the Rodon Group manufacturing facility in Hatfield Township, which most notably has manufactured more than 30 billion parts for the K´NEX toy company. “I’ve been keeping my own naughty and nice list in Washington, so you should keep your eye on who gets K’NEX this year," he quipped. He moved onto the fiscal cliff, which he said was "not some run of the mill debate."

Comments:
He´s so funny and clever. s/o The skinny Marxist should be in Washington working with everyone instead of his perpetual campaigning. He absolutely sickens me.

Obama´s re-election has proved that he has not yet begun to scratch the surface of voter tolerance for his agenda or his ability to blameshift to Republicans.

Look at things realistically: Obama plans to crash the economy so that he will be able to leverage a crisis. He will blame republicans. The public will accept that reasoning. That ought to be our starting point in the conversation.

It´s too bad the Ghost of Christmas Past can´t take Zero back to Kenya and leave him there. The chain Zero has forged in life would need the Mount Palomar telescope to view its entirety.

May as well have a "Scrooge Christmas". With what Obama´s proposing, the next four Christmases are going to make a ´Scrooge Christmas´ seem pretty nice.

Hasn´t he played this "Christmas Crisis" every year since he´s been elected?

It is baffling that he doesn´t have to do anything but threaten people. He skates and gets applauded in the process.

He has killed small business...damaged large businesses and caused such misery.

Where will the money come from when no one has a decent, stable job?

Let him takes us through the cliff. All his people will have to pay tons of taxes as all their benefits form Bush Tax plan will be gone. From here on they will be called the Obama tax increases.

Is there no one able---or who dares---to advise this over-educated idiot on the facts of AMERICAN culture?! By Christmas Day, Scrooge had reformed and everyone close to him: Bob Cratchit, Mrs. Dilber, nephew Fred, right on down to Tiny Tim, was blessed with a marvelous Christmas. But homey don´t read no books and he only watch sports on the TV.

He doesn´t care if there is a deal or not. Either he will force Republicans to raise taxes and end their careers or he will let them take the blame for going off the cliff and end their careers.

Boehner and McConnell have about 3 days to figure this out and come up with a strategy or they are done.

Obama just wants his way, or he thinks that he will be able to send the wimpy Republicans down the highway.

If this fiscal cliff does happen in early January, Obama will be basking in the sun on a beach in Hawaii taking part in a 3 week 4 million dollar holiday courtesy of the American taxpayer.

As the Russians have said, Obama was re-elected by mostly a huge illiterate population group of the US electorate.

I dont understand this...I keep saying there are more dems in the senate and do not need the republicans at all ..now did I hear correct that Rush said this fiscal cliff deal does not involve the senate..so am I correct in saying obama wants the House to pass a bill, but obama by passed the House to pass the obamacare bill by taking it to the senate to vote, which is against the
Contitution and therefore the bill is illegal. but obama needs the House to pass the bill so he can blame the Republicans. I am totally confused by this..
The republicans should all vote present..and tell the public they want a tax cut for the middle class...but they wont.

"Naughty and nice list"? I´m sure Stinky IS keeping a list, and there is nothing funny about it. It´s part of the Chicago way. Remember when Richard Nixon was critized, pilloried, for his "enemies list." It was presented as evidence of a character flaw.

The SPLC’s Attack on Rush

PJ Media, by Ron Radosh    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/22/2014 10:01:12 PM     Post Reply
The column I wrote last week, it turns out, has created somewhat of a storm. This is due to one thing only: Rush Limbaugh read it aloud on his radio program. (Start reading in the middle from where it says “BREAK TRANSCRIPT.”) That one decision by Rush led all of our mutual enemies to go viral, sending numerous Tweets and Facebook posts attacking Rush and me for supposedly arguing that the anti-Semitic neo-Nazi Glenn Miller acted because of Max Blumenthal. Of course, as I wrote last week in an addendum, this was not the point I was making. I wrote the following, and repeat it once again:

Iran Refuses to Pull Terrorist
Washington Free Beacon, by Adam Kredo    Original Article

Iran is insisting that the United States accept its decision to appoint a former terrorist as it representative to the United Nations, which held a closed-door meeting on Tuesday to address Tehran’s concerns over the matter. President Barack Obama signed into law last week a widely supported bill preventing countries from appointing terrorists as their U.N. ambassadors. The bill came in response to Iran’s selection of Hamid Aboutalebi as its next envoy to the United Nations. The pick drew outrage on Capitol Hill and elsewhere after Aboutalibi was identified as having played a key role in the 1979 Iranian hostage crisis,

Politico: Dr. Ben Carson´s Talent

At Politico Magazine, writer and physician James Hamblin tried to answer the question "Who is Dr. Ben Carson?" After describing how he became a "darling of the right-wing media" after calling out President Obama at a prayer breakfast, Hamblin tried to explain how he speaks in "over the top" language about America in decline. But Hamblin really let loose when he insisted that despite Dr. Carson´s surgical talent, his opposition to Obamacare is based on "sentiment," not a "rational pespective. His talent "does not imply an elevated or even rational perspective on health-care policy." Carson speaks from a unique position of stature

Obama’s Malaysia Trip
Includes Visit to a Mosque
Cybercast News Service, by Patrick Goodenough    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/22/2014 9:36:25 PM     Post Reply
When President Obama becomes the first U.S. president to visit Malaysia in almost half a century, he will visit a prominent mosque on Sunday – but not a church, in a country where relations between the Muslim establishment and minority Christians have not always been smooth. Also, Obama’s itinerary includes a meeting with “Malaysian civil society leaders,” but according to the White House he will not meet with Anwar Ibrahim, the veteran opposition leader who since the late 1990s has been embroiled in a legal battle with the government widely viewed as a politically motivated harassment campaign.

On Monday, The Washington Post announced it had hired Philip Bump, a journalist currently at Atlantic magazine’s The Wire, to cover politics for their daily blog The Fix. The move set off a chain of congratulations from across the political press corps. But lost in the media love fest was Bump’s partisan past — a history left unspoken in either the Post’s official announcement or any of the Twitter applause. Not only does Bump’s archive at The Wire betray a palpable bias in favor of progressivism; his career as a journalist began when he headed a vicious pro-labor blog which published the names and addresses of opponents later targeted by

Secretary of State John Kerry called Earth Day today “proof that the steadfast determination of millions is powerful enough to change the course of history.” “I still remember participating in the very first Earth Day back in 1970,” Kerry said in a statement this afternoon. “It helped to unleash a wave of grassroots activism that ultimately led to the creation of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and landmark laws like the Clean Air Act and the Clean Water Act. This Earth Day we need to consider new ways to unleash a new wave of activism to tackle today’s long list

Obama to free hundreds of drug

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Michelle Obama:

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

New audio reveals an Eastern Connecticut State University professor warning that Republicans will “want things to go back — not to to 1955, but to 1855? if they win control of Congress in November. Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives
