White House: Savings Come Later
Cybercast News Service, by Fred Lucas

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/12/2012 10:34:05 AM

The White House asserted that spending cuts would occur under a deal reached with Republicans, but would not pledge to make them immediate, addressing a key concern of many conservatives who fear a compromise will mean tax hikes without spending cuts. CNSNews.com asked, “A complaint has been made among conservatives that in the past deals were made $3 for spending cuts for every $1 in tax increases, the spending cuts are always 10 years ahead, five years ahead or somewhere along the line. Would the White House agree to something along the lines of upfront cuts early on?”

Sure they do. And I believe everything this regime tells me. s/o

Boehner has yet to come out publicly and chastise the president for his constant lying and backtracking. Instead, he continues to look for a way to raise our taxes without taking the blame.

We live in a land run by morons.

Obama is not telling the Truth!

Savings are not defined as a cut of the growth of spending!
It’s still MORE dollars spent!

And the Media is also reporting this as fact when they know it´s a lie!

When will the Media report the dollars spent compared to last year and not as a percentage of "proposed" spending?

My credit line at the bank is a DOLLAR amount not a percentage amount!

Main Street follows the Law.
Washington BREAKS the Law!

Justice bars lawyer from testifying
before House panel in IRS probe
Washington Times, by Stephen Dinan    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 1/31/2014 10:00:28 PM     Post Reply
The Justice Department said Thursday it is refusing to let a key lawyer testify to the House oversight committee on the criminal investigation into the IRS, saying that to let her brief Congress could potentially skew its probe. But oversight committee Republicans said blocking lawyer Barbara Bosserman from testifying only makes the Justice’s investigation look more partisan. After an internal audit last year revealed the IRS was unfairly targeting tea party groups for intrusive scrutiny and blocking their applications for tax-exempt status, Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. called for a criminal probe into the tax agency. Eight months later,

Iran Sanctions to Save Obama
Breitbart´s Big Peace, by AWR Hawkins    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 1/31/2014 9:46:57 PM     Post Reply
Unnamed sources told AFP that Democrats who were signed up for more sanctions against Iran have now "privately recoiled from a damaging vote against their own president." According to AFP, "several Democrat Senators who previously backed a bi-partisan sanctions bill stepped back after Obama threatened a veto during his State of the Union address on Tuesday." With the Democrats changing position, the bill is quickly losing momentum, and the once-imminent vote on new sanctions is imminent no more. Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) said: "I am strongly supporting the bill but I think a vote is unnecessary right now as long as there´s visible

President Barack Obama in an exclusive interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper, airing Friday said it is up to Congress to decide whether marijuana should continue to be classified as a Schedule I narcotic. “What is and isn’t a Schedule I narcotic is a job for Congress,” Obama said when Tapper asked if he was “considering not making marijuana a Schedule I narcotic.” “I think it’s the DEA that decides that,” Tapper interjected. “It’s not something by ourselves that we start changing. No, there are laws undergirding those determinations,” the president responded. According to the U.S. Controlled Substances Act, Schedule I drugs are described

A Washington man accused of a felony after a drunken high-speed police chase will get the chance to watch his Seattle Seahawks play in Sunday’s Super Bowl, as long as he wears an electronic-monitoring device. Police apprehended suspect Shaun Goodman at gunpoint after he led authorities through a 100-mile-per-hour chase in his Ferrari in Olympia, Wash. last month. On Thursday, a superior court judge approved a court petition by Goodman’s lawyer requesting that his client be allowed to leave the state for “a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see his hometown team” play in the Superbowl, but only under one condition: He must

President Obama on Friday said he´s open to taking executive action on immigration. The president said if Congress can’t pass reform legislation, he would explore all “available options” to implement a “smart system” unilaterally. “I’m going to look at all available options,” Obama said during a virtual “road trip” chat hosted by Google. Obama said he’s “modestly optimistic” that Congress would pass immigration legislation this year and called the immigration principles unveiled by House Republican leaders this week a step in the right direction. “There are still some differences,” Obama said. “I want to engage. I don’t want to prejudge and presuppose that we can’t

Politics: Henry Waxman, who perhaps had the greatest impact on America of any congressman of his generation, is stepping down after 40 years. Sorry, we won´t be joining the rest of the media in singing his praises. The diminutive and uncharismatic politician acquired immense clout in Congress by patient politicking and deal-making — the very things his arch foes, the Republicans, aren´t very good at. His quiet power is unmatched. If you´ve never heard of Waxman, he´s one of the farthest-left members of the House of Representatives, a key member of the chamber´s way-beyond-liberal Progressive Caucus.

Maine’s highest court: Transgender

The rights of a transgender girl from Orono were violated when school administrators made her use a staff bathroom at her elementary school instead of the girls’ restroom, the Maine Supreme Judicial Court ruled Thursday. The ruling is the first in which a state supreme court has affirmed a transgender person’s right to equal access to restrooms in places of public accommodation. Lawyers representing Nicole Maines, who is now 16, said the decision could lay a foundation for other states’ courts that are facing questions about the emerging rights of people who identify as the opposite of their birth gender.

UNITED NATIONS — Former New York mayor Michael Bloomberg was appointed Friday to be the U.N. special envoy for cities and climate change, a position that will give the billionaire businessman and philanthropist an international stage to press for action to combat global warming. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon chose Bloomberg, who made combating climate change a major focus of his 12 years as mayor and was very outspoken on how cities should be run to cope with ever increasing populations without harming the environment. U.N. deputy spokesman Farhan Haq said Bloomberg will assist the U.N. chief in his consultations with mayors

CAMBRIDGE, Maryland—House leadership began the closed-door immigration meeting Thursday by passing out their immigration "principles" just as the first news stories about what was in them were starting to pop. But if the public rollout of the document seemed like an announcement, the feeling inside the room was much more tentative. Speaker John Boehner, in particular, surprised many in the audience with his tepid words on behalf of moving forward. "He seemed timid or reluctant to suggest that this was anything but a discusssion," Rep. John Fleming (R-LA) told Breitbart News. "He even said, he made the statement—which I found surprising --

The lawmaker noted that Waxman’s retirement is part of a broader trend in Congress, where many legislators are leaving in frustration over Capitol gridlock. “There’s a frustration of inability to work together to get things done,” she explained.

Someone needs to grab John Boehner by the lapels and shake him until he cries. Granted, that would be, at most, one shake. But still. The alleged leader of the GOP in the House just tossed a land mine into the path of his party as it was set to march to victory this fall. The immigration “principles” that Boehner backs are indistinguishable from the Senate Gang of Eight bill that Boehner rejected, according to Byron York. He looks like an unprincipled fool, and a rube. Now that the principles — all 804 words of them — have been released,

Hundreds of career Justice Department lawyers have broken into open revolt against Attorney General Holder over his support of legislation that would drastically cut back on mandatory minimum sentences for drug pushers. The legislation Holder supports, known as the Durbin-Lee bill, would overturn the current mandatory minimum sentences not only for marijuana violations but for all drug offenses, including major and repeat trafficking in heroin, meth, PCP and other extremely dangerous, and often lethal, drugs. This was too much for hundreds of federal prosecutors. Today, Chuck Grassley, the Ranking Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee, read aloud from a letter the

As predicted, the Obama administration and many in the Democratic Party are trying to peddle the story that ObamaCare is now working because the healthcare.gov website is functioning better. But despite the questionable claims of easier access and more people enrolling in the ObamaCare exchanges, the ugly truth is the horror stories are piling up and, sooner or later, ObamaCare’s cheerleaders will have to confront the overwhelming evidence indicting them for repeatedly lying to the American people. As expected, President Obama used his State of the Union speech Tuesday to extol the virtues of ObamaCare, and also as expected, retold the story
