Napolitano: Cuts will make US more
vulnerable to terrorist attack

The Hill [Washington DC], by Justin Sink

Allowing the $85 billion sequester to go forward will make the United States more vulnerable to a terrorist attack, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano warned Monday. Napolitano added that the blunt nature of the $85 billion in automatic spending cuts set for March 1 “makes it awfully, awfully tough” to mitigate threats faced by the nation. “I don´t think we can maintain the same level of security at all places around the country with sequester compared to without sequester,” said Napolitano, whose agency includes the Transportation Security Administration.

But not as much as telling the whole world that we are the problem does.

Can´t wait ´til the adults are back in charge.

If so, you and your boss should be fired. You two are making a whole lot of people that liked you in November very sorry they pulled that lever.

How is not having enough manpower to catch me sneaking on a 5 oz bottle of shampoo going to bring the country down? Gees, in my job I am asked to do more with less every fiscal quarter, why can´t the government give it a try? Try some accountability and iniative, bozos.

The puppet speaks on behalf of the puppet master. The sky is going to fall down because Obama may have to decrease the rate of his spending increases. He could offset the whole amount by parking his airplane and staying in D>C>. It hurts to have your allowance trimmed a tad when you are a compulsive spender and you goal is to bankrupt the Country. It might take him a week more to do so now and he is a very impatient person.

If the criteria is what does or does not make the United States more vulnerable to a terrorist attack, why then has the WH done everything they have done up to now?

Seriously? A $0.02/dollar cut makes that big of a difference?

I know I can find 20% savings in each and every department within the Federal Government, and it would probably make them more efficient at the same time!

Does she mean less secure as in: the border will be less secure, or less secure like: one of our ambassadors (along with 30 of his co-workers) might get left to die?

The scaremongering being perpetrated by this White House and the cabinet secretaries is absolutely outrageous and unconscionable! These people must think that the rest of us are the dumbest idiots on the planet earth. How in the world can a 3% cut based on projected increases really be this bad for economy? The answer is that it can´t! This is all political theater.

One advantage Obama voters have is they live in a fantasy world where their infantile wants trump any fact. In my fantasy world, Republican Senators would haul this POS in front of Congress and have her account for every penny of increase in the HSS budget since 2008 and demand why she is unable to keep us safe when that idiot Bush could.

Big Sis has already made us more vulnerable - but that´s another matter. This Chicago crew may find out that they´ve gone to the well once too often - if the Pubs can finally stand firm and let the sequestration begin.

Remember all that Establishment buzz last week warning "purist" conservatives that perfect is the enemy of good? Now it´s time for the Establishment to practice what they preached. Sequestration is far from perfect, but it is a good baby step forward. "Let it be".

SANTA FE, N.M. —A national political magazine has released secret audio recordings of Gov. Susana Martinez, and it’s causing quite a reaction both here in New Mexico as well as across the country.Mother Jones penned an article recently that asked if Martinez was the next Sarah Palin. The article featured several recordings of the governor. Some believe what Martinez is heard saying could jeopardize her political aspirations. The recordings were published by Mother Jones, who said they’re from four years ago. The reporter said his article sheds light on a side of Martinez the public has never seen before, a

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

Book: White House scrambled

Vice President Joe Biden really did get ahead of President Barack Obama on accepting gay marriage in 2012 — and the White House really wasn’t happy about it, despite the two leaders’ many attempts to claim otherwise. That’s the story laid out in Jo Becker’s new book, “Forcing the Spring,” which documents the past few years of successful efforts to expand the legalization of gay marriage, according to an advance copy obtained by POLITICO. Speculation that Biden’s comments on “Meet the Press” in May 2012 were meant as a trial balloon, Becker writes, came from people “not privy to the

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

President Obama said Wednesday that Russia realizes the U.S. military is “significantly superior” to its own and does not want war with the United States. Asked in an interview with CBS News about a Russian fighter buzzing a U.S. Navy ship in the Black Sea on Saturday, Obama said, “They’re not interested in any kind of military confrontation with us, understanding that our conventional forces are significantly superior to the Russians.” Obama accused Russian President Vladimir Putin of being behind uprisings in Ukraine in which government buildings have been taken over. Ukraine’s government has launched an operation against the separatists

AUSTIN, Tex. — The last nine months of Rick Perry’s tenure as the longest-serving governor of Texas were supposed to be a political victory lap. Greg Abbott, the Republican state attorney general, and Wendy Davis, the Democratic state senator, both of whom are vying to replace Mr. Perry, have been sparring across Texas. Meanwhile Mr. Perry has been traveling the country and the world promoting the robust Texas economy and bolstering his national profile as he considers another run for president in 2016.

GUANTANAMO BAY NAVAL BASE—Victims of the 9/11 terror attacks expressed shock that the FBI may be meddling in the hearings here, and some speculated that it is part of an effort by the Obama administration to completely derail the hearings and force them into federal court stateside. Families of those killed in the 9/11 terror attacks traveled here with the intent of watching their family members’ accused killers face justice. However, many say they were horrified earlier this week when pre-trial hearings came to a halt over revelations that the FBI had launched an investigation into the accused terrorist’s defense

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." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

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

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.

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

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
