Obama schedules potentially
‘catastrophic’ debt-ceiling ‘fiscal
cliff II’ for February

Daily Caller [Washington DC], by Neil Munro

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 1/2/2013 10:21:33 AM

President Barack Obama scheduled another so-called “fiscal cliff” crisis for February by announcing late Jan. 1 he would refuse to negotiate any curbs on his use of the nation’s maxed-out credit card. “I will not have another debate with this Congress over whether or not they should pay the bills that they’ve already racked up through the laws that they passed,” he claimed during a late-night appearance on the last-minute resolution to the December 2012 fiscal cliff. However, the GOP-led Congress wants to use its authority over the nation’s debt ceiling to pressure Obama to shrink future spending,

Hopefully, the Repubs will cave early, so we don´t have to watch anymore Kbuki theatre while they crash the system and put the economy finally over the edge.

The repubs are as guilty as the Dems for the consortia of this once great nation. In banan republics, the parties take turns raping and pillaging the taxpayers.

We´ve officially reached that stage.

The pigs in Congress are lining up at the trough.
Cute and catchy little description again..
"catastrophic debt-ceiling"..
keep in mind, that Obama can NOT legally raise the ceiling by excecutive order. It MUST come from the House.

The RINO´s will cave.

I´m re-registering as an Independent today.

If enough of us will do that, maybe the RINO´s will get a message...or become DIM DEMs which is what they are anyway.

This is the real "new normal".

Not scandalously high unemployment, entrenched dependancy or failed foreign policy.

The new normal is governance by crisis. The continuos use of "cliffs", crisis situations and histrionic hyperbole to convince the useful idiots that unless policy XYZ is enacted NOW all will be lost.

In the private sector one of the first signs a business is about to go belly up is this kind of management process. A company (or country) that spends all its time "putting out fires" cannot spare resources to create the product (or policy) for future growth and sustainability.

Such companies almost always fail shortly thereafter. While the left shouts from the rooftops that market forces are a myth and even if they did exist would not affect the government they are wrong.

Its a law as unbreakable as the laws of physics. That which cannot be sustained will not be sustained. Even the dolts in congress know in their very bones our spending cannot be sustained and yet they also believe that somehow (miraculous thinking?) it will be.

Like petulent two year olds, they will not learn the stove is hot until they actually burn their fingers.

This arrogant president will not debate this Congress over debts THEY have already racked up, but of course Mr Arrogance himself didn´t sign any of these things into law. Noooooooo.....they just slid by him with him unaware of the consequences....with nary an effort to cut anything. Also, did anyone notice that with the Dr. Fix he just spent the money he said he didn´t take from Medicare (which he did) and put it back into the Dr. Fix. So now the trillion he said he save got unsaved.

Where is the former inquisitive American press? Oh, yes dead.

That applies to the debt ceiling being raised and any further spending. We also need to say the same to any advancement of socialism by this administration.

This is all part of the new culture of governance. Keep the population in a constant state of fear, never let them get comfortable again. Make them constantly look to government for a solution to their angst. The goal is to keep us tipping on our heels with the constant fear of "something worse". It´s the plan, and both parties are in on it.

To further reiterate what #13 said, here is an excerpt from a Michelle Obama speech from UCLA in February 2008:

`Barack Obama will require you to work. He is going to demand that you shed your cynicism. That you put down your divisions. That you come out of your isolation, that you move out of your comfort zones. That you push yourselves to be better. And that you engage. Barack will never allow you to go back to your lives as usual, uninvolved, uninformed`.

We are in for another 4 years of divisive division from this regime. Always keep people guessing, off their game, every decision is an NFL 2 minute warning. The onlt constant is change - FORWARD!!

Feds Curtail Major Counterterror
Exercise in Washington
Washington Free Beacon [DC], by Bill Gertz    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/1/2014 8:06:28 PM     Post Reply
The White House sharply curbed a major counterterrorism drill scheduled for Tuesday in Washington that was designed to test the federal government response to threats of car bombs attacks and a chemical weapons strike on the Metro subway system. The exercise, code named Eagle Horizon 2014, was cut back instead to small-scale communications checks within federal agencies. The transfer of government functions through groups of emergency personnel located at remote secure locations as part of so-called “continuity of government” operations was scrapped, according to Obama administration security officials.

President Obama seized on the veneer of good news about Obamacare to tear into his critics, issuing one of the most partisan speeches of his presidency and accusing opponents of lying about the law to scare the public because they´re opposed to people having health insurance. Obama returned over and over to the law´s critics, aggressively asserting the window on repeal of the law has closed because many of its subsidies have kicked in and will be politically difficult to dislodge.

A federal appeals court on Tuesday said that the Justice Department did not provide good enough reason to withhold documents related to its investigation into former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay. The appeals court overturned a district court ruling that had allowed Justice to withhold documents related to its case against DeLay. It remanded the decision back to the district court, which will give the Justice Department another opportunity to argue why the documents should not be released. The documents were requested by Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) in 2010 under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).

In a speech on the Senate floor Tuesday, Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) said free enterprise isn´t always best. Government must step in. "The free enterprise system is a strong system," he said, but it "created unfairness and injustice when it came to health care, which we are addressing with this Affordable Care Act." In passing that law, Durbin said Democrats "rejected the free enterprise approach to health care and said let´s have something that basically respects families." He also criticized Republicans for embracing free enterprise: "Let me tell you a free enterprise idea when it came to health care. Before

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.

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.

A National Labor Relations Board official has given the green light to Northwestern University football players to form a union.

Ohr rejected the longstanding view of Northwestern and the National Collegiate Athletic Association that players are "student-athletes" rather than employees.

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

The pair spent three years studying the history of the chalice and last week published a book, “The Kings of the Grail,” making their case.
