Obama Playing Chicken
With Economic Disaster

Townhall, by Kevin Glass

Many progressive reporters and bloggers have been pushing the idea that going over the fiscal cliff into January will have very little effect on the economy and will actually help President Obama achieve his legislative goals. Indeed, Republican Sen. Barrasso hypothesized that President Obama was "eager" to go over the cliff. Unfortunately, going over the fiscal cliff has real economic effects, and the progressives who are claiming otherwise are irresponsibly pushing the country to unnecessary economic pain. "If it lasts three weeks, I´m pretty sure we get a recession out of it," Princeton University economist

Hitler also went over the cliff. It enabled him to consolidate his powers.

They see their chance of getting total power and they are seizing it. They will think about other things later. First things first.

What tempts Obama to be so reckless. . . weakness on the other side! Remember how long the muslims kept believing that American would quit after they exact a few casualties and the media helped by showing endlessly every flag draped coffin coming off the aircraft? Now it will be that difficult for a good leader to stop this lunacy with the budget and debt.

The only economic disaster about which the Resident may be concerned is extracting enough tax money from the Makers to keep the Takers employed in government. The economic disaster for the Makers started 4 years ago.

Having Obama push the economy off the cliff offers this quite mean & very delusional man child several positives:

A. The Bush tax rates expire. Restoring the same rates on those earning less than $200,000 means it now the Obama tax cuts. He will proclaim how the rich will finally pay their fair share at the State of the Union .

B. As economy falters, he can call for yet another massive stimulus for his favorite groups: teacher, police, fire and state/municipal unions.

C. He can blame the racist GOP for wanting his black half to fail. "Boehner´s KKK pushed the economy back into the ditch". To BO, life´s a ditch.

D. While all eyes are on tax negotiations, his EPA, Energy and Commerce Dept will be issuing new regs.

E. His foreign policy disasters are also overlooked.

Why not send him packing? The House of Representatives, by a simple majority, show he is unqualified for office under the 20th Amendment, paragraph 3. They can refuse to seat him.

It is easily done. His father was a British citizen, born in British East Africa. And under British law, citizenship passes from father to son. Nor are they allowed to renounce their status.

Article 2, Section 1 of the Constitution is clear. All American citizens were British citizens before the War of Independence, and afterwards until they died. A special provision was made for them to hold the office of President--every citizen was a British citizen--if,only if, they were born before the Constitution was ratified. It required a generation of children born after that date to produce another generation who were qualified to be President.

President -elect Obama is a British citizen, a son of his father, and unqualified for office. All it takes is a majority of the House to send him packing.

Why should he care? Obama knows going over the fiscal cliff will only hurt those who despise him and/or those who didn´t vote for him. He´s an angry politician with literally no vision.

Economic disasters are engineered by Progressives to grow government.
That´s what they do best.

Big business gets their "cut"!
Small businesses get screwed!
Main Street foots the bill!

As soon as America and the Media figure this out, they are "toast"!

Think about it........

Taxes go up for everybody.
Obama rides to the rescue to LOWER taxes and save the economy.

We never ever have to hear the phrase "Bush Tax Cuts". Forever more, we will talk about the "Obama Tax Cuts".

Obama gets to blame the Republicans for taxes going up...because the insisted on protecting the rich. And does ANYONE think for even a second that the press will be honest for even a second.

This is a three way win for Obama, the treasoncrats and the press.

#14 - the problem with your otherwise excellent idea is that a strong case can be made that Franklin Marshall Davis is Obama´s real father. Compare photos of the two. Davis was 6´ 2" tall and so is Obama. Davis noted in one of his writings that he had had sex with "Anne". If Davis is Obama´s True father, this adds incentive to hide Obama´s birth certificate. Be all of that as it may, Bonehead Boehner and the Gutless Old Party wouldn´t persue removing Obama out of their fear of the media.

How can returning to Clinton taxes be called a cliff? We´re told that was the golden era. Bush tax cuts for the rich are blamed for junk loans, high unemployment, heatburn, flat feet and cancer.

#6 and 7 - bingo, bingo. If the Republicans weren´t so incompetent, disorganized, and fractured, they would be shoo-in to turn this into a political gain as well having a positive effect on the economy. Boehner must go before the G.O.P. will be able to make any positive strides in turning this fiasco around.

Earth Daze: Overcoming Environmental Hysteria

"The heavens reek, the waters below are foul ... we are in a crisis of survival." That´s how Walter Cronkite and CBS hyped the first Earth Day, back in 1970. Somehow we´ve survived since then, and most of life got better, although I never hear that from the worrywarts. Of course, some things got better because of government: We passed environmental rules that got most of the filth out of the air and sewage out of lakes and rivers. Great—but now we´re told that we´re in big trouble because greenhouse gases cause global warming. I mean, climate change. "Crop yields are

The Stupid Hounding of Condi Rice

If Condoleezza Rice were as self-pitying and politically crass as Attorney General Eric Holder, she would be wondering aloud what it is about her race and gender that accounts for the hostility of her enemies. Rice’s recent speaking gigs on college campuses and her ascension to the board of the file-sharing company Dropbox have sparked protests calling for her to be disinvited, cashiered and generally isolated and shamed. Condi Rice is not a natural lightning rod. She’s such a disreputable figure that she’s on the board of the Kennedy Center and the Boys and Girls Clubs of America. She’s such a lightweight

As a "government drone" hovers over Matt Rosendale, the Republican House candidate from Montana tells the camera what he thinks of government overreach, regulation, and "spying on our citizens." Then, standing in front of an ATV, Rosendale coolly puts a rifle to his shoulder, looks up through the sight and "downs" the drone with a single shot. "The federal government is too big and too powerful," Rosendale says. "I´m ready to stand tall for freedom and get Washington out of our lives," he says. Rosendale is trying to stand out in a five-way primary for Montana´s at-large seat in the House. Sporting a barn

A story is told about Robert L. Bartley, late editor of the Wall Street Journal, and his penchant for long silences. He is supposed to have once taken a job applicant to lunch at which, though the two shared a meal, neither spoke a syllable. That is no doubt apocryphal; the job applicant probably said something. George Washington had a taciturn streak, as did President Coolidge, known as “Silent Cal.” (Snip)But rarely does anyone get as upset about it as Jeffrey Toobin of the New Yorker appears to be in respect of Clarence Thomas. Toobin came unglued at the disinclination of

Let’s say you got into politics running for office as a Democrat. You hate Rupert Murdoch and Fox News and the Wall Street Journal, and you really, really hate Bill Kristol. You despise bankers and got set up in activism by a group working on behalf of “the working class” and complaining: “Every day the rich tighten the chains . . . . They close the factories, the mills, the mines, and ship our jobs overseas.” You’re part of a group that endorses the Mearsheimer-Walt view that Israeli interests hold American foreign policy captive – a group that also wholeheartedly

The U.S. must stand behind
its security obligations

On the eve of Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2003, Gen. James Mattis admonished the 1st Marine Division to “[d]emonstrate to the world there is ‘No Better Friend, No Worse Enemy.’” That motto could serve as a guiding principle for sound national security policy. Regrettably, our allies wonder whether the United States is demonstrating the reverse. Since leaving as secretary of homeland security in January 2009, I have talked with officials from friendly nations in Asia and the Middle East. Increasingly, I hear skepticism about whether the United States remains a reliable ally our friends can trust for support against attacks.

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it."

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as
