Obama schedules potentially
‘catastrophic’ debt-ceiling ‘fiscal
cliff II’ for February

Daily Caller [Washington DC], by Neil Munro

Posted By:JoniTx, 1/2/2013 10:21:33 AM

President Barack Obama scheduled another so-called “fiscal cliff” crisis for February by announcing late Jan. 1 he would refuse to negotiate any curbs on his use of the nation’s maxed-out credit card. “I will not have another debate with this Congress over whether or not they should pay the bills that they’ve already racked up through the laws that they passed,” he claimed during a late-night appearance on the last-minute resolution to the December 2012 fiscal cliff. However, the GOP-led Congress wants to use its authority over the nation’s debt ceiling to pressure Obama to shrink future spending,

Hopefully, the Repubs will cave early, so we don´t have to watch anymore Kbuki theatre while they crash the system and put the economy finally over the edge.

The repubs are as guilty as the Dems for the consortia of this once great nation. In banan republics, the parties take turns raping and pillaging the taxpayers.

We´ve officially reached that stage.

The pigs in Congress are lining up at the trough.
Cute and catchy little description again..
"catastrophic debt-ceiling"..
keep in mind, that Obama can NOT legally raise the ceiling by excecutive order. It MUST come from the House.

The RINO´s will cave.

I´m re-registering as an Independent today.

If enough of us will do that, maybe the RINO´s will get a message...or become DIM DEMs which is what they are anyway.

This is the real "new normal".

Not scandalously high unemployment, entrenched dependancy or failed foreign policy.

The new normal is governance by crisis. The continuos use of "cliffs", crisis situations and histrionic hyperbole to convince the useful idiots that unless policy XYZ is enacted NOW all will be lost.

In the private sector one of the first signs a business is about to go belly up is this kind of management process. A company (or country) that spends all its time "putting out fires" cannot spare resources to create the product (or policy) for future growth and sustainability.

Such companies almost always fail shortly thereafter. While the left shouts from the rooftops that market forces are a myth and even if they did exist would not affect the government they are wrong.

Its a law as unbreakable as the laws of physics. That which cannot be sustained will not be sustained. Even the dolts in congress know in their very bones our spending cannot be sustained and yet they also believe that somehow (miraculous thinking?) it will be.

Like petulent two year olds, they will not learn the stove is hot until they actually burn their fingers.

This arrogant president will not debate this Congress over debts THEY have already racked up, but of course Mr Arrogance himself didn´t sign any of these things into law. Noooooooo.....they just slid by him with him unaware of the consequences....with nary an effort to cut anything. Also, did anyone notice that with the Dr. Fix he just spent the money he said he didn´t take from Medicare (which he did) and put it back into the Dr. Fix. So now the trillion he said he save got unsaved.

Where is the former inquisitive American press? Oh, yes dead.

Should read:

“I will not have another debate with this Congress over whether or not they should pay the bills that they’ve already racked up through the laws that they secretly passed while I was on vacation in Hawaii", he claimed during a late-night appearance...

Refuse to raise the debt ceiling.

Crash it all.

Obamster will finally own it.
His second term will be a wreckage.
His overspending is the problem.

No one can spin it. Not even the LSM.
Trillions in deficits is clearly...
"Unsustainable."
What part of "Unsustainable"...

Here is our theme going forward:
"Just Say No"!
That applies to the debt ceiling being raised and any further spending. We also need to say the same to any advancement of socialism by this administration.

This is all part of the new culture of governance. Keep the population in a constant state of fear, never let them get comfortable again. Make them constantly look to government for a solution to their angst. The goal is to keep us tipping on our heels with the constant fear of "something worse". It´s the plan, and both parties are in on it.

To further reiterate what #13 said, here is an excerpt from a Michelle Obama speech from UCLA in February 2008:

`Barack Obama will require you to work. He is going to demand that you shed your cynicism. That you put down your divisions. That you come out of your isolation, that you move out of your comfort zones. That you push yourselves to be better. And that you engage. Barack will never allow you to go back to your lives as usual, uninvolved, uninformed`.

We are in for another 4 years of divisive division from this regime. Always keep people guessing, off their game, every decision is an NFL 2 minute warning. The onlt constant is change - FORWARD!!

They now have 35 RINO Senators and Boehner´s "loyal 85" on their side to do as they wish. There will always be a reason why it is better to compromise. God help us!!

Barry is such a liar about paying bills already racked up. If he was so concerned why did he insist on including $76B in tax write-offs for his favored GE, Goldman Sacks et.al. in the midnight tax increase bill?

UAW drops NLRB case to

CNN Money, by Chris Isidore    Original Article

NEW YORK -The United Auto Workers has dropped its challenge of a vote to organize workers at Volkswagen´s only U.S. plant that went against the union. The National Labor Relations Board was set to start a hearing Monday on the UAW´s complaint that Republican politicians improperly interfered before the Feb. 14 vote at the Chattanooga, Tenn. plant, which the union lost 712 to 626. But the union issued a statement Monday saying it was dropping its appeal because fighting the election through the NLRB could have dragged on for years.

As it sought to recruit well-heeled investors, an untested and unprofitable Miami company named InnoVida brought aboard a trusted Florida figure in 2007: Jeb Bush, the former governor and the brother of a sitting president. For potential stockholders, the imprimatur of Mr. Bush, who joined InnoVida as a paid consultant and a member of the board of directors, conferred credibility on the young start-up. That credibility did not last long. It turned out that the leaders of InnoVida, a manufacturer of inexpensive building materials, had faked documents, lied about the health of the business and misappropriated $40 million in company

DNC Chair and Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) told Meet the Press’ David Gregory Sunday morning that President Barack Obama’s latest delay in the approval of the proposed Keystone Pipeline was not a political decision meant to animate members of the Democratic base ahead of the 2014 midterms. “As a member of Congress who represents hundreds of thousands of people in south Florida, I want to make sure the right decision is arrived at and that the president makes that decision carefully and doesn’t factor politics into his decision, which I don’t think he is,” Wasserman Schultz said.

LAS VEGAS — Deep beneath Lake Mead, a 23-foot-tall tunnel-boring machine grinds through stubborn bedrock in a billion-dollar effort to make sure water continues flowing to this thirsty resort city. For six years, the Southern Nevada Water Authority has been building an intake straw below the reservoir´s two existing pipes. Due for completion in fall 2015, critics say it may not provide a long-term solution. An ongoing drought and the Colorado River´s stunted flow have shrunk Lake Mead to its lowest level in generations. The reservoir, which supplies 90% of Las Vegas´ water, is ebbing as though a plug had been

In an op-ed published in the Boston Globe on Easter Sunday and posted on the State Department website, Secretary of State John Kerry recalled his days as an altar boy and pointed out that he is “the first Catholic Secretary of State in 33 years.” Alexander Haig, who served as secretary of state to President Ronald Reagan from January 1981 to July 1982, was also a Catholic. Last month, I traveled to Rome with President Obama, where I was honored to meet His Holiness Pope Francis,” said Kerry. “As an altar boy six decades ago, I never imagined that I

(Video) A car plowed into a Fort Myers church filled with 200 people celebrating Easter on Sunday night, injuring 21. Fort Myers police responded to the chaotic scene shortly before 8 p.m. at the Second Haitian Baptist Church on 3660 Central Ave., Lt. Victor Medico said. When officers arrived, church members were using car jacks to try to lift the vehicle off churchgoers who were trapped underneath. Mary Briggs, spokeswoman for Lee Memorial Health System, said 18 people were taken to Lee County hospitals. Ten of the injured were taken to Lee Memorial Hospital, one of which was discharged late Sunday.

A man was charged with attempted murder and aggravated battery in a Friday shooting that left a 40-year-old man in the Brainerd neighborhood with six gunshot wounds. Deontae C. Jones, 18, was held on $1 million bail after appearing in Cook County bond court Sunday afternoon. Prosecutors said Jones approached a man who was outside his residence on the 9300 block of S. May St., checking to see if his recycling bin was full when Jones approached the man and fired at him.

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

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

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama.

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

President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come. It is quite possible that the ACA is
