Navy: Lincoln Refueling Delayed,
Will Hurt Carrier Readiness

USNI News, by Editor

Original Article

Posted By:noddy, 2/8/2013 4:03:16 PM

The U.S. Navy will delay the refueling of the aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN-72) for an unknown period because of the uncertain fiscal environment due to the ongoing legislative struggle, the service told Congress in a Friday message obtained by USNI News.(Snip) ´´This delay is due to uncertainty in the Fiscal Year 2013 appropriations bill, both in the timing and funding level available for the first full year of the contract,” the message said.

From the picture we look like sitting ducks, similar to Pearl Harbor.

This is treasonous. Not just for having such a valuable asset sitting idle but to proclaim it is out of service and publicize this administration´s incompetence in the belief they will gain politically.

Obama and Mooch will still take separate planes and they will be fueled. Pelosi needs her plane readied for a California weekend. Panetta needs his plane readied so he can spend the weekend in Ca. I understand Medendez is flying to the Dominican Republic for the weekend.

Prez dipwad will not be satisfied until all borders are down and the mooslims can run in and kill more people. Mexicans should reform their government, but for some reason, they are afraid of their own government. Wish I could feel sympathy for them, but I do not - set land mines if necessary.

This is what happens when the morons get their way. Remember: "It will be a great day when our schools get all the money they need and the Air Force has to have a bake sale to buy a bomber"?

It was sentimental foolishness when it was just a bumper sticker. Now, that sentimentality has become dangerous.

I think there is a lot of smoke and mirrors, bait and switch and all sorts of posturing by all special interests to avoid the sequestration. Even the Pentagon is not immune to this.

#9 is correct. This is smoke and mirrors. I worked for DOD as a $$ type for 25 years and I know how the game is played. Panetta is working with the Administration to make everyone think they don´t have money. IT´S A LIE.

Obama is working to turn his proposed sequester into a weapon to trash GOP. On Thursday, Charles Krauthammer and other conservatives wrote that GOP had upper hand in sequester fight. Obama, Axlerod and Jarrett are now seeking to turn this into an Obama advantage by using potential budget cuts as yet another weapon to blame Repubs.

Boehner, Cantor and team have to avoid turning into mush.

A Georgia teenager needs a lifesaving heart transplant, but his family says low grades and trouble with the law have kept him off the transplant list. Doctors at Children´s Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston told the family of 15-year-old Anthony Stokes that they won´t put him on the transplant list because of his history of ´noncompliance,´ according to ABC´s Atlanta affiliate WSBTV. ´They said they don´t have any evidence that he would take his medicine or that he would go to his follow-ups,´ Melencia Hamilton, Anthony´s mother, told WSBTV.

Like a recurring nightmare, the return of O.J. Simpson to a Las Vegas courtroom come Monday will remind Americans of a tragedy that became a national obsession and in the process changed the country´s attitude toward the justice system, the media and celebrity. His 1995 trial is the stuff of legends, the precipitous fall of a Hall of Fame football player from the pinnacle of adoration to a murder defendant who, although acquitted of killing his ex-wife and her friend, was never absolved in the public mind.

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico — The fishing trip off the rugged north coast of St. Lucia was supposed to last all day, but about four hours into the journey, the boat´s electric system crackled and popped. Dan Suski, a 30-year-old business owner and information technology expert from San Francisco, had been wrestling a 200-pound marlin in rough seas with help from his sister, Kate Suski, a 39-year-old architect from Seattle. It was around noon April 21. He was still trying to reel in the fish when water rushed into the cabin

LAS VEGAS — A former Nevada state lawmaker who had been expelled from the Assembly hours earlier led authorities in California on a high-speed freeway chase before he was shocked with a stun gun and arrested on charges including resisting arrest, authorities said Friday. Steven Brooks, 41, was arrested at about 7 p.m. Thursday on Interstate 15 outside the city of Victorville after a 15-mile chase that exceeded speeds of 80 mph, California Highway Patrol Officer Don Spiker said. It was Brooks´ third arrest since January, and the second involving allegations that he fought with police.

´´It’s time for first lady Michelle Obama to raise her game,´´ writes liberal Washington Post columnist Courtland Milloy in Wednesday´s edition. ´´Nothing wrong with telling kids to eat their peas or showing them how to Hula-Hoop. But after four years of focusing on the body, she’d do well to spend these next four on building strong minds.´´ Milloy says there´s been too much attention paid to Michelle´s body (her arms, bangs, designer clothes), and not enough attention paid to her ivy league education: "Where is that intellectually gifted Princeton graduate, the Harvard-educated lawyer and mentor

A four-year-old boy died after one of the hospitals shamed by David Cameron as having persistently high death rates repeatedly failed to diagnose his cancer. Mackenzie Cackett’s tragic plight won the heart of the Duchess of Cambridge when she made a trip to The Treehouse hospice where the little boy spent his final weeks last year and where she is patron. With Mackenzie vomiting and complaining almost daily of headaches, his desperate parents went to the scandal-hit Colchester General Hospital four times over seven months before doctors finally discovered a tangerine-sized tumour at the top of his spine.

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
