Obama has led US to £338bn

a financial abyss

On the streets of Manhattan last week, the American public were more concerned about the delay in restoring their public services after Hurricane Sandy than about the entrails of politics following the presidential elections.New York votes Democrat. It took for granted that Barack Obama would get a second term, and did not look much beyond that. Now, though, all America is having to peer into an abyss--or, to use the metaphor of the moment, over a ‘fiscal cliff’.[Snip]The plan is that $136 billion (£85.5 billion) in cuts--0.8 percent of GDP--will come in at the same time as $532 billion of

Comments:
Heffer thinks there might be a change in 2014 when people have had time to see the effects of Kevcare* and other income muggers. It´s a good read.

*Obama likes us to call his universal lousy health plan "Obamacare" because it bears his name as a memorial for all time. I won´t do it. He´s the Kevlar President to me and I shall call him Kev, thus "Kevcare."

I love the Daily Mail. It may be the only newspaper in the world that tells the truth about the catastrophe of the bounty that has been handed to the "takers" in this country.

The Demonrat party is not the party of Santa Claus, they are the party of bribery, voter fraud, economic and social destruction, and ultimately the death of America as we knew it.

This election had devastating consequences for 50% of the country and the Left is still crowing about their victory.

How can you make fiscal responsibility a campaign issue when a major voting block of the democrats have no concept of it?

Many Obama voters "buy" a car with the understanding that at some point, it will be repossessed for lack of payment. As one of those remarked: "They just as well repossess a Lincoln as a Chevrolet".

Responsible Americans need to understand that there are two very polar value systems involved in our political process now.

This was always Obama´s intention, to destroy this country. With the help of the useful idiots, he will be allowed to finish the job.

"Responsible Americans need to understand..."

RE: #2 -- That´s the problem in a nutshell most Americans are either to stupid or simply not interested unless their money stops. The only way for this country to get back on any kind of track is just let it all, economically speaking, hit rock bottom.

Interpol has heavily criticised Thailand´s lax airport security after it emerged at least two passengers boarded the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH307 with stolen passports. The international police force said at no point were the passports checked against its lost and stolen database. Had these checks been carried out it would have come to light that two passengers were travelling on two passports stolen in separate incidents over the last two years. Luigi Maraldi, 27, the owner of one of the passports, was listed as the sole Italian national on the missing flight. This afternoon he told how the document was stolen while

For a man who is new to the job, the Ukrainian prime minister, Arseniy Yatsenyuk, is pretty impressive. Indeed, his performance would be stunning by the standards of any long-serving national leader. Responding to the refusal of Russia’s foreign minister to enter into any direct talks with his country, and the less than thrilling response to this obduracy by the western powers, Mr Yatsenyuk’s spontaneous exasperation was pitch perfect: “What’s happened? What’s up with global security? Are we crazy?” [Snip] A sovereign nation was being invaded and occupied by another country’s military while the rest of the world stood by

As Europe’s leading power, a global economic titan, and a nation that has sought since 1945 to set an example of peace and democracy, Germany ought to be at the forefront of demands for sanctions to be imposed on Russia after its outrageous behaviour in Ukraine. But it has signally failed to discharge its moral duty towards Europe. The main reason is self-interest because the German economy is massively dependent on Russia. Not only is Russia one of the main markets for its exports, but its industry and homes rely so heavily on the country’s gas and oil. What’s more,

The fate of flight MH370 from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing remains unclear more than 12 hours after air traffic controllers lost touch with the plane. However, there were reports Vietnamese air force planes have spotted a 14-mile long oil slick 120 miles off the coast of Cape Ca Mau - the most southerly point of Vietnam´s mainland. "We have no information on the location of the aircraft," said Malaysia Airlines in a statement. "We are currently working with international authorities on the search and rescue mission."

The crisis in Crimea won´t keep President Barack Obama from forging ahead with a weekend getaway with his wife and daughters in the Florida Keys. But it´s more than the Oval Office that will be dark as Russia´s incursion into Ukraine reaches its one week mark. Vice President Joe Biden and his wife are vacationing in the Virgin Islands. And national security adviser Susan Rice is traveling in the Middle East for meetings with her counterparts.

A major search has been launched for a Malaysian Airlines jet with 239 people on board after it lost contact flying from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing. Airline officials admitted they were gravely concerned for the safety of the aircraft. It was not immediately known which nationalities were on board the jet which was flying on a popular route. An unconfirmed report on a flight tracking website said the aircraft had plunged 200m and changed course shortly before all contact was lost. The route would have taken flight MH370, a B777-200 aircraft, across the Malaysian mainland in a north easterly direction and then across the

´Russian television news is reporting…” Nowadays, when I hear those words pronounced on the BBC or ITN, I can’t help but wince. Over the past 10 days, Russian television news has reported, among other things, that 675,000 Ukrainian refugees have flooded over the Russian border; that extremists and neo-Nazi militants have illegally taken over the Ukrainian government in Kiev; and that Crimean “self-defence forces” or “pro-Russian forces” have spontaneously gathered in front of the Crimean parliament in order to defend it from those same Nazis. Each of these statements is a lie: there are no refugees flooding into Russia.

Is Mitt Romney getting the band back together? The 2012 Republican presidential nominee has invited his debate prep advisers and senior campaign aides to his mountaintop chalet in Park City, Utah, for a weekend of skiing later this month, according to two people close to Romney. The reunion of Romney´s political brain trust comes amid a burst of positive buzz about the former Massachusetts governor -- from favorable reviews of "MITT," the Netflix documentary about his campaigns, to chatter among some powerful GOP donors about another Romney presidential campaign in 2016.

The Kentucky senator received 31 percent, far ahead of second place Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who received 11 percent. Neurosurgeon Ben Carson finished third with 9 percent, ahead of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who received 8 percent. The announcement came at the end of the group’s annual three-day confab. Organizers said that 2,459 attendees voted on computer kiosks.

What’s been said of confession — that it is good for one’s soul but bad for one’s reputation — can also be true of testifying to Congress, so Lois Lerner has chosen to stay silent. Hers, however, is an eloquent silence. The most intrusive and potentially most punitive federal agency has been politicized; the IRS has become an appendage of Barack Obama’s party. Furthermore, congruent with exhortations from some congressional Democrats, it is intensifying its efforts to suffocate groups critical of progressives, by delaying what once was the swift, routine granting of tax-exempt status. So, the IRS, far from repenting

One of the most seismic changes in American politics over the last decade has been the emergence of a sharp generational split among the electorate. The Democratic Party owes its success in the last two presidential elections almost entirely to overwhelming support among the very young, which has overcome continued conservatism among older voters. The Pew Research Institute has dominated the field of exploring the ideological cleavages among different generations. And its latest survey shows again how the liberalism of the youngest voting cohort, millennials, remains firm, and likely to continue to recast the electorate. A few charts from the survey

The Marriage of Obama´s Parents:

Barack Obama´s parents were "married in name only," according to David Maraniss´s 2012 Barack Obama: The Story. But since definitions of an "in name only" marriage vary, such as "a marriage of convenience" or "a sexless marriage," and Maraniss failed to explain his claim, it is unclear what he was implying. Therefore, Obama´s oft-told nativity story must be searched for the full implications of Obama´s parents´ "in name only" marriage. (snip) So when did Ann´s and Obama Sr.´s "whatever happened happened fast" wedding happen? For no apparent reason, confusion abounds among Obama´s biographers over the wedding date:

The most dangerous parts of a flight are takeoff and landing. Rarely do incidents happen when a plane is cruising seven miles above the earth. So the disappearance of a Malaysia Airlines jet well into its flight Saturday morning over the South China Sea has led aviation experts to assume that whatever happened was quick and left the pilots no time to place a distress call. (Snip) The problem had to be big enough, he said, to stop the plane´s transponder from broadcasting its location, although the transponder can be purposely shut off from the cockpit.

Kuala Lumpur - A Malaysia Airlines flight carrying 227 passengers and 12 crew crashed in the South China Sea on Saturday, Vietnamese state media said, quoting a senior naval official. The Boeing 777-200ER flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing had been missing for hours when Vietnam´s Tuoi Tre news quoted Admiral Ngo Van Phat as saying he had asked boats from an island off south Vietnam to rush to the crash site. If the report is confirmed, it would mark the U.S.-built airliner´s deadliest crash since entering service 19 years ago. Malaysia Airlines had yet to confirm that the aircraft had crashed.
