Shutting Down Government For
Sequester May Backfire On Obama

Investor´s Business Daily, by Ford O´connell

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 2/22/2013 6:57:47 PM

Obama´s Hyperbolic Sequester Pla First responders arrayed behind him at a press conference. Teachers furloughed from the classroom. Air-traffic controllers furloughed from the control towers. Everything but pay for the troops at risk in the armed forces. President Obama wants us to taste austerity. He wants us to see what it would be like if our representatives in Congress — and this is all Congress´ fault, in his version of events — fail to get back to Washington and avoid the sequester scheduled to take place on March 1. Can we live with fewer firemen and teachers and more

I suspect that all of the oppressive bureaucracies will remain open for business: EPA, Dept of Equality, Dept of Correct Speaking, etc.

Headline is delusional. What, in 50 months as president has backfired on the Prince of Darkness? Everything he has done as president has failed, and there is nothing in his current radical agenda that will be of benefit to our country. Yet the writer thinks that somehow, someway, Obams will be harmed by a 2 cents on a dollar reduction in spending.

Obama is lying about sequester impact because he already knows nothing will happen. Which means he will be hailed as the protector of seniors, the young, illegals, the handicapped, miners, union members and the LGBT coalition.

They had to close down a couple of firehouses in our area because the voters did not approve a tax increase. We were told it would be a disaster and the town would burn down and people would die. Since then, every time there´s a fire, there´s been a big article about it in the newspaper and a story on the local station, and every single time they bring up the "reduced" services because the voters refused to approve a tax increase. It´s gotten to the point that my husband and I wait for it and then applaud when we hear or see it. Yes, we did vote against it, and not one house has burned down or one person been hurt since then. The fire department was forced to become more efficient. I suspect that if the sequester cuts are made what may become obvious is the fact that we can get by with less. Of course, every night the MSM will go out of their way to find any inconvenience or sob story related to the sequester, and blatantly lie to blame it on Republicans.

The cuts aren´t cuts. They are smaller increases than the libtards wanted - but libtards don´t mind lying.

Actually, a govern,ent shutdown would be great. We´d save a ton of money, and the public would see how little value much of the bureaucracy of government gives us. Some people will lose jobs. I guess then the DC crowd would taste what we have to eat.

Hey guys...bring it on. I don´t need to go anywhere, I live in the country, have plenty of supplies to last a few years.

Hope it causes a LOT of major problems, and since they were caused by Obama, I hope that folks will FINALLY take some action. Looking forward.

Americans are ready for straight talk

The problem is that this country is FULL of un-Americans; people who are either not American citizens, or people who don´t believe in America the way it was founded. People who see America as a goose that lays golden eggs, and they want their eggs NOW.

Hillary Clinton today praised a 19-year-old woman who broke down crying at an event today as she revealed that she is an undocumented immigrant. The former first lady, secretary of state and potential 2016 presidential candidate encountered the passionate young woman while taking questions at a “Girls: A No Ceilings Conversation” event at the Lower East Side Girl’s Club in Manhattan, “I have a very different glass ceiling than some of the girls are exhibiting here. For the first time publicly I want to say that I’m an undocumented immigrant,” said the woman, named Nova, who quickly began to tear

The ´War on Women´ Failed in 2012
Wall Street Journal, by Michael Medved    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 4/17/2014 7:48:13 PM     Post Reply
President Obama is suddenly upset about the alleged wage gap between men and women, but he´s not responding to a national economic crisis. Instead, he is attempting to revive the "war on women" theme that, according to Washington wisdom, helped carry Democrats to victory in 2012 and might do again in 2014. If this narrative were true, the White House could spend the year demonizing Republicans as women-hating creeps, driving women to the polls in November and helping the party hold the Senate. But the conventional analysis isn´t accurate. National exit polls from 2012 show scant success for the war-on-women

Judge Strikes Down Costly
Provision Of Dodd-Frank
Investors Business Daily, by Editorial    Original Article

Regulation: In a victory for common sense, a federal judge has voided a race-based mandate of the Dodd-Frank Act that would have cost manufacturers and retailers billions in compliance expenses. Marking the first time a court has ruled that a provision of Dodd-Frank violates the Constitution, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit held that the financial "reform" law´s bizarre rule requiring companies to disclose whether their products contain "conflict minerals" from Africa violates the First Amendment. As we´ve argued, the rule had zero to do with financial reform and was sneaked into the law by Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters

Regulator Without Peer

Anyone wondering why the U.S. economy can´t seem to grow at its usual pace should examine one product category where production is booming: federal regulation. Washington set a new record in 2013 by issuing final rules consuming 26,417 pages in the Federal Register. While plenty of government employees deserve credit for this milestone, leadership matters. And by this measure President Obama has never been surpassed in the Oval Office. The latest rule-making tally comes from the Competitive Enterprise Institute´s Wayne Crews, who on April 29 will publish his annual review of federal regulation in

Obama´s Plan: Taxes,
Spending And Debt

Fiscal Policy: Remember President Obama´s vow that, if re-elected, he´d pursue "balanced" deficit reduction? Either he forgot, or he hopes voters have, because a new report shows his latest budget is entirely unbalanced. When Obama released his budget this March, he said it included "smart spending cuts" and closed "tax loopholes" that benefit only "the wealthiest Americans." Obama added that his budget would put "our debt on a downward path as a share of our total economy, which independent experts have set as a critical target for fiscal responsibility." As with just about everything Obama says, none of these claims turns out be

Emails Show Corruption
At Heart Of Administration
Investors Business Daily, by Editorial    Original Article

Corruption: New emails show that both the IRS and Justice Department were involved in a probe of Tea Party and other conservative groups. This is no mere scandal — it´s a major breach of the law. The newly released emails were gathered for a Freedom of Information Act request by Judicial Watch, a nonpartisan public interest law group. They show that former Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner discussed with the Justice Department going after conservative groups that she believed lied about their political activities. What´s shocking is that this discussion came just days before Lerner acknowledged that the IRS had

Reid: Bundy Supporters

Supporters of Bunkerville rancher Cliven Bundy have been called domestic terrorists by Senator Harry Reid. He made the comments during an appearance at a Review-Journal event, and repeated them, saying “what happened there was domestic terrorism’ The government says Bundy owes more than a million dollars in grazing fees and fines stemming from a 20-year dispute over trespass cattle. After obtaining court orders and beginning a roundup of cattle more than a week ago, BLM backed down, called off the roundup, and returned the cattle, after armed supporters of Bundy converged on the area.

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

About six in ten American voters think Barack Obama lies to the country on important matters some or most of the time, according to a Fox News poll released Wednesday. Thirty-seven percent think Obama lies “most of the time,” while another 24 percent say he lies “some of the time.” Twenty percent of voters say “only now and then” and 15 percent “never.” Click here for the poll results.
