Obama to talk fiscal cliff at
K’NEX building in Montco

Philadelphia Inquirer, by Frank Kummer

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 11/27/2012 7:30:08 AM

President Barack Obama plans to appear Friday at the Hatfield, Montgomery County, company building where K’NEX toys are made as part of a pitch for his strategy in dealing with the fiscal cliff. The trip will mark Obama´s first public event outside the nation´s capital since winning re-election. Obama plans to speak at the Rodon Group manufacturing facility as an example of a business that depends on middle-class consumers during the holiday season. The Rodon Group makes parts for K´NEX Brands, a construction toy company whose products include Tinkertoy, K´NEX Building Sets and Angry Birds Building Sets.

It´s a ´tell´. Members of Congress aren´t in PA. He´s campaigning, not negotiating. He´s the finger-pointing community organizer. He´s not serious about the ´fiscal cliff.´

The fiscal cliff exists because the ´Rats extracted a sunset clause as the price. Why then are Republicans responsible for this? Because they are lilly livered, spine jellied nincompoops.

Re:: It’s part of the president’s new public roadshow....

His entire presidency has been a roadshow, with nothing to show for it other than massive debt, fewer jobs, wasteful spending, racial & class warfare, corruption and lies. Perhaps this toy company can produce a Teflon coated Angry Barack, the game where everyone but Angry Barack loses.

There is a fiscal cliff because Obama wanted one. He is the one who put this all off until after the election.

The pubbies need to start a PR campaign of their own and get the truth out. They also need to explain to people that Obama´s taxing of the rich will produce a whopping $85 billion - which would run the government for about a week and do nothing toward paying off our bills or paying down the debt.

RNC: We can use the color blue

the party of ‘red tape’
Washington Times (D.C.), by Tom Howell Jr.    Original Article

The Republican National Committee says they’re no longer going to be cornered into a one-color scheme — so they’re adding a little blue. RNC Chairman Reince Priebus this week unveiled a new “GOP” logo that features a blue “O” with an elephant in it. “Now Democrats will be the party of red, which is much more in line with their record and values. After all, they are the party of red tape, red lines and red ink,” he said. Blue and red have become short-hand for the Democratic and Republican parties, respectively, but Mr. Priebus said those associations are misplaced.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, criticized last year by a Vatican official for her support of abortion, received a rosary Tuesday from President Obama that was blessed by Pope Francis. Mrs. Pelosi told reporters of the president’s gift after having lunch with Mr. Obama at the White House. The president met with the pope last week at the Vatican. “I was happy to receive a rosary blessed by Pope Francis,” she said. “It means a great deal to me.” Last year, a Vatican official in Rome said that Mrs. Pelosi should be denied communion. “This is a person who obstinately,

JERUSALEM — U.S. Secretary of State John F. Kerry is canceling a planned trip to Ramallah on Wednesday to meet with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas amid new threats from the Palestinian leader to circumvent U.S.-backed peace talks with Israel. Kerry had planned to make an emergency trip to Abbas’s West Bank headquarters in hopes of announcing a breakthrough, according to a senior State Department official. An official familiar with the talks had said earlier Tuesday that negotiators were discussing in broad outline a plan that would require Israel to slow settlement construction and release hundreds of Palestinian prisoners.

Late yesterday afternoon, Chairman of the House Oversight Committee Darrell Issa and Ranking Member of the Senate Judiciary Committee Chuck Grassley sent a letter to ATF Chief B. Todd Jones asking why major players in Operation Fast and Furious are still working at the agency, especially considering Jones said they were no longer employed. Although many agents and supervisors involved in the deadly operation have retired or resigned since 2010 when Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was killed with a gun trafficked to Mexican cartels during the program, not a single person has been fired.

President Obama has welcomed the World Series champion Red Sox to the White House, praising their triumph on the field last fall while hailing them as a symbol of their city´s determined response to the bombing at last year´s Boston Marathon. Obama said Tuesday he´s grateful for the role the team played in helping heal the city after the terror attack. He said sometimes sports seems trivial, but it can bring people together like almost nothing else. Red Sox slugger David Ortiz at one point took a selfie of himself and the president as a keepsake.

We recently published a forecast that described the GOP as more likely than not to win the U.S. Senate in November. But our analysis was less bullish on Republicans’ prospects of flipping the seat in Iowa currently held by Democratic Sen. Tom Harkin, who is retiring. There, Democrats appeared to have a strong candidate in Rep. Bruce Braley, who has cleared his primary field. Republicans, meanwhile, face a contentious primary with a number of candidates who have never won races for statewide or federal office. After we published our forecast, the Republican PAC America Rising released a video of Braley,

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) got into the April Fools spirit Tuesday, displaying his Winston Churchill (temporary) tattoo on Fox News Channel. After rolling up his sleeve and showing the hosts the tattoo, Cruz kindly suggested that they check the calendar for what day it was. (Tweet) And here´s the video, courtesy of the Washington Free Beacon: (Video) The gag tied together two recent pop culture phenomena involving Cruz: one being a poster featuring a Photoshopped version of a tatted-up Cruz, and the other being Cruz´s recent attempt at a Winston Churchill impression.

Obama Plans Statement, 7 Million

President Barack Obama is planning a Rose Garden appearance Tuesday as sign-ups under his health care law surpassed 7 million. A government official told The Associated Press that the 7 million mark had been crossed. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the official was not authorized to discuss developments by name before Obama´s announcement. The 7 million target was thought to be out of reach by most experts after computer glitches slowed sign-ups on deadline day Monday. A surge of consumer interest propelled sign-ups. Obama plans to speak at 4:15 p.m. The administration has not said how many of

XI’AN, China — It was a rare, almost intimate scene, between Michelle Obama and her mother, played out before the world. When a group of Chinese girls invited the first lady to skip rope at an event on the ancient city wall here, she kicked her heels off to slide on a pair of flats. Before an aide could swoop in and pick up her daughter’s shoes, Marian Robinson bent down to grab them. Then, the 76-year-old grandmother beamed as Obama jumped. Obama’s daughters, Sasha and Malia, stood nearby, shyly hanging back as their mother took center stage. Robinson clapped

SHIRLEY, N.Y. – A 17-year-old Long Island student has accomplished what few believe is possible. Kwasi Enin, of Shirley, has been accepted at all eight Ivy League schools to which he applied. The William Floyd High School senior began hearing from the schools March 27. He told Newsday he couldn´t believe it, "the yesses kept coming." Brown, Columbia, Cornell, Dartmouth, Harvard, Princeton, Yale and the University of Pennsylvania all said yes. Kwasi scored 2,250 out of 2,400 on the SAT. That places him in the 99th percentile for all students taking the exam.

House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan is set to release a spending plan Tuesday that Republican leaders say would balance the budget in 10 years. As the Washington Examiner´s Susan Ferrechio reported March 21, the plan is likely to build off his fiscal 2012 and 2013 proposals, with the addition of new reforms to the nation´s growing social welfare programs. In a 204-page report issued in March, Ryan said the hundreds of federal programs for the poor included overlaps and waste and has "actually created a poverty trap." The release sets up a Wednesday vote in the House on a budget

A "vast majority" of Mitt Romney donors, establishment pooh-bahs, and an anti-conservative consultant who is the epitome of permanent political class want former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush to run for president in 2016. Bush was in Las Vegas this week meeting with Sheldon Adelson, and, according to the Post, "many if not most of 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney’s major donors are reaching out to Bush and his confidants with phone calls, e-mails and invitations to meet." One bundler even said that a "vast majority” of "Romney’s top 100 donors would back Bush." The Post also noted that in the meantime "Bush’s

I have no objections to Jeb Bush running for president. He obviously has a wide appeal as a potential candidate. (Snip) His support of Common Core, however, will also find many who are in the conservative ranks objecting, since they fear that Common Core represents educational centralism and having the government ram federal standards down their throats. What I do object to is that Bush is already being heralded as the obvious candidate, the man to whom the big money must and will flow. As the Washington Post reports: Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a

Obamacare, the plan purportedly created to provide health coverage for the uninsured, has enrolled just 1.7% of America´s 48.6 million uninsured. News of the disastrous numbers comes as nervous Democrats and President Barack Obama, ahead of the November midterm elections, did their best on Monday´s enrollment deadline to put a positive spin on the deeply unpopular Obamacare program. (Snip) The White House now claims an Obamacare enrollment figure of six million people. However, according to The New York Times, at least 20% of those never paid their premiums to activate coverage, leaving them uninsured.

YOKOHAMA, Japan — Climate change is already having sweeping effects on every continent and throughout the world’s oceans, scientists reported Monday, and they warned that the problem is likely to grow substantially worse unless greenhouse emissions are brought under control. The report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a United Nations group that periodically summarizes climate science, concluded that ice caps are melting, sea ice in the Arctic is collapsing, water supplies are coming under stress, heat waves and heavy rains are intensifying, coral reefs are dying, and fish and many other creatures are migrating toward the poles or

A National Labor Relations Board official has given the green light to Northwestern University football players to form a union. The March 26 decision by the NLRB´s Chicago regional director, Peter Sung Ohr, held that scholarship football players are "employees" for purposes of federal labor law. Ohr rejected the longstanding view of Northwestern and the National Collegiate Athletic Association that players are "student-athletes" rather than employees. While Ohr´s decision is hardly the final word on this issue, it does accelerate the legal and political battle against the NCAA and its century-old amateurism rules. Is Football Academic?

Washington — The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration on Monday finalized long-delayed rules that will require automakers to install back-up cameras in all vehicles by May 2018. The new rules set rear visibility standards that automakers will initially be able to meet only by installing cameras. At the same time, major automakers said Monday they are petitioning the Obama administration to let them end the use of side view mirrors if they install cameras that could perform the same task — a move that could improve fuel efficiency.

The report, provided to Breitbart News ahead of its late Sunday evening release, reviews internal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) metrics to conclude that the Obama administration released 35 percent—or 68,000—convicted criminal aliens back into the U.S. general population when they could have been deported.

Drinking Earl Grey tea could help guard against heart disease, it has emerged, after a study found that bergamot extract--a key ingredient in the hot drink--is just as effective as statins at controlling cholesterol. Scientists believe bergamot, a fragrant Mediterranean citrus fruit which gives Earl Grey tea its distinctive flavour, can significantly lower cholesterol. They say it contains enzymes known as HMGF (hydroxy methyl glutaryl flavonones) which can attack proteins in the body known to cause heart disease. The study found bergamot could even be as effective as statins, used to control cholesterol but which can have side effects in

WASHINGTON — LeBron James wants you to sign up for health coverage under Obamacare. So do Magic Johnson and Jonah Hill’s mom. Monday is (sort of) the deadline for Americans without employer-provided health coverage to sign up for insurance under the Affordable Care Act — the White House extended it so that anyone who’s begun to sign up by Monday can still complete the process by April 7 — and the final enrollment numbers will be an important test for a law intended to expand access for the uninsured. It’ll also be a test for the White House’s high-octane sales
