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

Daily Caller [Washington DC], by Neil Munro

Original Article

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.

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!!

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?

Al Gore´s youngest daughter has gotten remarried under a historic tree in Santa Monica. Sarah Gore has a very casual outdoor service on Sunday morning outside a coffee shop with her famous father walking across a patch of grass that served as the makeshift aisle. Wearing a loose, off-white lace dress with bell sleeves, Sarah made her way towards her groom, realtor Patrick Maiani, who was waiting for her beside the outline of a heart in the shape of rose petals.The brief service was officiated by a female religious leader and attended by about a dozen invited guests.

As a young reporter, I once expressed shock at how routinely and reflexively government officials lied to the press. A savvy newspaper vet who overheard me just smiled and told me not to take it personally. “Why shouldn’t they lie to you?” the late, great Murray Kempton asked. “They lie to themselves all the time.” His observation came back to me as I read about President Obama’s trip to Asia. He’s going, the White House says, to tell our allies face to face that America is committed more than ever to their security and prosperity. In ordinary times, the trip and

WASHINGTON — Curt Clawson, a businessman who was little known months ago in Southwest Florida, won a contentious GOP primary Tuesday to fill the U.S. House seat left open by the scandalous downfall of Trey Radel.Clawson, 54, pitched himself as an outsider against more established candidates and was embraced by the tea party. He poured more than $2 million into television ads. In one, the former Purdue basketball player challenged President Barack Obama to a three-point contest. The Bonita Springs resident took about 38 percent of the vote in the Congressional District 19 race, besting several rivals, including state Sen.

IRS employees who had been disciplined for tax and conduct issues were nonetheless rewarded with monetary awards or time off, according to a watchdog report released Tuesday. The report by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration found that while for the most part the reward program for IRS workers complied with federal regulations, employees who had themselves failed to pay their federal taxes and had discipline problems were also rewarded. "While not prohibited, providing awards to employees who have been disciplined for failing to pay federal taxes appears to create a conflict with the IRS’s charge of ensuring the

It seems only yesterday, before the soothing elixir of “hope and change” was spoonfed to us by present-President Barack Obama, that Republicans could disagree with Democrats without being branded “teabaggers,” KKK-members, anarchists, Nazis, bomb throwers, arsonists, political terrorists or extremists. The unspeakable crime of conservatives? Their heartless desire to live their own lives and to be left alone by the bullying U.S. government. What has been the conservative outcry since disco was still a thing? Follow the Constitution, be fiscally responsible, and restore limited government.

SPRINGFIELD — As the General Assembly heads into its final month of session, House Speaker Michael Madigan said Tuesday that he doesn’t have enough votes lined up yet to extend the state’s income tax increase or raise the minimum wage. The speaker, talking to reporters the day he was easily elected to a fifth term as Illinois Democratic Party chairman, said voting to keep the personal income tax rate at 5 percent instead of letting it fall to 3.75 percent on Jan. 1 will be a “difficult roll call.” “Every person in the legislature is going to be called upon

How often have you heard a Democrat prattle on and on about how well Barack Obama has done with the economy, given the mess he inherited? Usually, it’s some version of, “Things are getting better, but the economy the President started with was so awful, so he’s done as well as anyone could expect.”When Ronald Reagan took over from Jimmy Carter in ’81, things were actually worse economically compared to when Obama took over from George W. Bush in ’08. Consider these three important comparisons of economic indicators, then and now: - Unemployment was at 10.8% versus 7.7% - Inflation (Consumer

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.

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
