White House: GOP responsible
for contracting economy

The Hill [Washington, DC], by Justin Sink

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/30/2013 3:23:37 PM

White House press secretary Jay Carney laid the blame for a surprise economic contraction squarely at the feet of congressional Republicans Wednesday, saying economic threats during the "fiscal cliff" negotiations had prevented important defense spending. "Our economy is facing a major headwinds, and that´s Republicans in Congress," Carney said. The Commerce Department projected Wednesday that the nation´s gross domestic product (GDP) shrank by 0.1 percent in the fourth quarter of 2012. Carney said that was partially attributable

Right on que! Imagine how wonderful it would be if we actually had rational people in the White House. This is why we have 0bama for a second term. The idiots that elected him believe these outrageous lies.

Unreal. Obama has the economic skills of an eggplant, as anyone remotely paying attention for the last 4 years well knows.

This administration *needs* to be exposed for the corrupt, inept crony crew of misfits that it indeed is...

The White House is full of crap and we all know it. When it feeds us crap and blames Republicans for anything that goes wrong and takes credit for everything that appears to go right, Republican leaders need to be prepared to come out swinging to defend themselves. Even better, they need to anticipate the crap and put the truth out there BEFORE the crap-feeding commences.

Seriously Boehner et al., get a friggin´ clue. The rest of us could make a fortune betting on what the White House is going to say; it isn´t difficult to anticipate.

Notice how Republicans will have no strong language to counter this.

Nothing like "socialism leads to poverty and stagnation"

Nothing like "Obama is a socialist and follows failed socialist prescriptions"

...nothing like that from republican leadership.

Democrats can lie all day long and not be called on it because they have dumbed down the population so much that people will believe anything they say. This is why it is important for us to all get out there and work on educating the public, teaching them the truth, and countering the lies whenver they come up. We cannot pretend that is doesn´t matter.

So why is the economy dependent on government spending to barely tread water? In a normal recovery GDP would be 4-5%/year and a temporary dip in gov´t spending would hardly be noticed.

8 of the last 9 qtrs government expenditures have been negative. The only exception was 3rd Qtr of last year when Obama was buying the election. Exports were negative as were private inventories you can´t blame the GOP for that. Or for all the business activity brought forward into the qtr to avoid higher taxes. That kept the gdp number from looking even worse. Carney makes Baghdad Bob look honest.

The GOP is comprised of a bunch of idiots at the helm. It puzzles my why anyone would still put their faith in this dead party.

It´s waaaay past time to move away from the traditional two-party system and consider voting for the right *candidate* rather than your idea of the right *party*.

Our Founders warned us about parties. It pays to heed their warnings.

If the Donks think the GOP is as powerful as that, with just a majority in the House, then the Donks would be wise to lay down arms in despair and surrender to Boehner. Otherwise we may raise our eyebrows or something, possibly causing earthquakes and raging fires. So don´t make us mad. Quit Today.

Mosqueing the Top of the
Empire State Building
Breitbart´s Big Government, by Pamela Geller    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 3/21/2014 8:46:47 AM     Post Reply
A Muslim family from Long Island slapped the owners of the Empire State Building Tuesday with a $5 million lawsuit that claims that Islamic prayer is not being accommodated on the observation deck of the Emprie State Building. This is the template for imposing Islam on the public square (or a top ten target of jihadists). This public prayer on the observation deck of the Emprie State Building was a provocation. It had nothing to do with piety or religiosity. It is political and supremacist. Were they facing Mecca or Ground Zero? You don’t see this in Muslim countries. They can make

Obama-appointed judge: border
fence may have a ´disparate

American Thinker, by Thomas Lifson    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 3/21/2014 8:43:58 AM     Post Reply
Liberals can rationalize away anything in the name of discrimination against minorities. Even national sovereignty. The Corruption Chronicles blog of Judicial Watch reports: A Homeland Security initiative to put fencing along the U.S.-Mexico border could discriminate against minorities, according to an Obama-appointed federal judge who’s ruled that the congressionally-approved project may have a “disparate impact on lower-income minority communities.” This of course means that protecting the porous—and increasingly violent—southern border is politically incorrect. At least that’s what the public college professor at the center of the case is working to prove and this month she got help from a sympathetic federal judge.

North Carolina Democrat Verla Insko got some chuckles from some of her colleagues in the state Senate during legislative hearings on Obamacare after she asked about the percentage of prostate cancer patients that were women. "What percent of the prostate cancer patients are women?" Insko, a state representative from Chapel Hill, asked Duke University research scholar Chris Conover during the hearing in Raleigh on Tuesday. "I have no idea," Conover replied, as people in the room began laughing. "I would guess zero," he added. "But I don´t know that for sure." Insko´s question was captured by an America Rising tracker

President Obama said in a Norwuz greeting released Wednesday that the Iranian regime’s selection of a new president last year was in fact an election in which “the Iranian people” were allowed to choose a new leader. “Last year, you—the Iranian people—made your voice heard when you elected Dr. Hassan Rouhani as your new president.” Obama said Rouhani “was elected with your strong support.” Shortly after the regime’s selection of Rouhani, the Wall Street Journal’s Sohrab Ahmari described the process for subverting democratic choice in Iranian elections: Iran’s presidential campaign season kicked off last month when an unelected body of 12 Islamic jurists

Former White House advisor and current MSNBC contributor David Axelrod appeared on Now with Alex Wagner on Thursday where he insisted that the Affordable Care Act will be a boon for Democratic incumbents running for reelection in November. He added that he believes too many incumbent Democrats have accepted the “myth” that the ACA is unpopular, and he advocated that they “embrace the very good elements” of the ACA when they run for reelection. Alex Wagner and Axelrod both agreed that Democrats have done a poor job of attacking Republicans for advocating what they said was the health care delivery system

Rush Limbaugh is officially a children’s book author. Late last year he released Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims, an American history book with elements of time travel, and Limbaugh was actually nominated for Author of the Year by the Children’s Book Council. You can imagine how well people took that. A few liberal sites picked up on the news last week, and the group got a few negative reactions on Facebook. (Snip) So, of course, earlier this week, the CBC had to put out a statement explaining that they didn’t actively choose to put Limbaugh on the list. The Author of the

Opposition to President Obama´s healthcare law is close to its all-time high as the reform reaches its fourth birthday. A new survey by the Pew Research Center found that 53 percent disapprove of ObamaCare, compared with 41 percent who approve. Disapproval has not markedly risen over the last six months as the rollout encountered its most severe technical and policy problems. But the consistency of public opposition to healthcare reform is creating challenges for the White House and Democrats as they seek to keep the Senate in November. The survey offers insight into the public´s opinion of ObamaCare, just as

President Obama pushed back on criticism of his recent appearance with comedian Zach Galifianakis to promote the Affordable Care Act, noting that President Lincoln "loved telling the occasional bawdy joke." The president´s remarks, during an interview with ESPN Radio´s Colin Cowherd that aired Thursday, were an indirect jab at Fox News host Bill O´Reilly, who argued during a segment of his show earlier this month that the 16th president would never have agreed to such an appearance. "First of all, if you read back on Lincoln, he loved telling the occasional bawdy joke and being out among regular folks," Obama

Budget cuts at the Coast Guard are coming at an unfortunate time. As the service, like other branches of the military, makes do with less, drug smugglers are increasingly turning to the high seas -- and challenging the Coast Guard´s already strained resources. Officials tell Fox News that drug smugglers are moving some of their operations away from the U.S.-Mexico land border and out into the ocean where it´s easier to avoid law enforcement. And for U.S. patrollers, that theater is becoming harder and harder to defend. "As the Department of Homeland Security became more effective at stopping smuggling across

The Ethics Committee did not specify the matter on Thursday, but USA Today has reported Gutiérrez continued to employ his former chief of staff Doug Scofield — now an Illinois lobbyist — as a paid contractor since 2003. Scofield had been paid more than $500,000, the newspaper reported, to train staff and write press releases, among other things. Gutiérrez released a statement shortly after the committee made its announcement, saying the referral dealt with a "long-standing contract."

With New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie stalled by the “Bridgegate” affair, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has become the establishment´s candidate and top pick to win the 2016 GOP presidential nomination, according to a new analysis of the race. “We now consider Bush the leader of the field if he decides to run,” said the influential “Crystal Ball” from the University of Virginia´s Center for Politics. “In recent months, we’ve noticed an unmistakable and widespread desire among some of the Republicans we talk to, particularly ones who would be classified as members of the establishment on and off Capitol Hill, for a third Bush nominee in less than three decades.

First lady Michelle Obama, her two daughters, Malia and Sasha, and her mother touched down Thursday in China for what’s being touted as a weeklong feel-good tourist event, amid increasing murmurs back home about U.S. taxpayers having to foot the bill. Mrs. Obama is supposed to use her visit for soft diplomacy only, and shy from the more controversial topics that plague U.S.-China relations, namely human rights and economics. No reporters accompanied the family on the trip. “The nature of her visit is really quite

“Obamacare” as shorthand for the Affordcable Care Act was first used mostly by critics of the law, but now everyone’s using the moniker and President Obama has long since embraced it. But apparently no one told Nancy Pelosi, because she’s still ticked off at how much people talk about “Obamacare” instead of the “Affordable Care Act.” In response to a reporter asking a question about Obamacare being a political winner or loser, Pelosi said, “By the way, it’s called the Affordable Care Act.

Secretary of State John Kerry called Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday morning to protest insults the Israeli defense minister directed at the Obama administration this week, the State Department said. In a speech at Tel Aviv University on Monday, Moshe Ya’alon criticized President Obama for having a weak foreign policy, and said Israel could no longer rely on the United States to lead nuclear negotiations with Iran. “Secretary Kerry spoke with Prime Minister Netanyahu this morning.

President Barack Obama said Wednesday that he thinks Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick “would make a great president or vice president.” Obama and Patrick, both Democrats, are friends and close political allies. The two men have campaigned for each other, with Patrick acting as a surrogate for Obama nationally during the 2012 presidential race. Patrick has said clearly that he intends to return to the private sector when his second term as governor is up at the end of the year and will not run for president in 2016. But he has not ruled out a run for office in the
