Sequester Hysterics
American Spectator, by Peter Ferrara

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 2/20/2013 6:13:24 AM

President Obama told America yesterday morning that if the sequester goes through on March 1, It will eviscerate job-creating investments in education and energy and medical research…. Emergency responders like the ones who are here today — their ability to help communities respond to and recover from disasters will be degraded. Border Patrol agents will see their hours reduced. FBI agents will be furloughed. Federal prosecutors will have to close cases and let criminals go. Air traffic controllers and airport security will see cutbacks, which means more delays at airports across the country.

Obama is making his appeal to the morons who, when comedians interview them on the street, claim that Oprah is the Vice President. They will unequivically believe this bs. Who on the Republican side, besides Mark Levin, is calling him out for this?

Not one scary revelation in the whole list. Odummah is losing his touch. Emergency responders don´t respond now. We let murderers out on the streets every day; Jerry Brown does it by the truckload. Crime is rampant throughout the government. Our major cities are all on the edge of bankruptcy. Education is a sham. Shut it all down and let the people handle it.

It´s too soon now but I wonder how long it will be before some activists start calling for Obama to have a 3rd term.Even though there´s a lot of Hillary enthusiasts,Obama would trow her under the bus in a minute to keep his grip on government.People have billions invested in this guy and it´s hard to believe they´ll let him walk away without the country being destroyed first.

Heard the video clip of this lying s-bag demagogue. Lies on top of lies. Since when are first responders and teachers paid out of the federal budget? The sequester rolls back the budget to OBAMA´S 2011 LEVELS! So he he is saying if we cut our spending to 2011 all this evil will befall?
And job cuts will not be made by the Repubs, but by the administrators and bureaucrats of the Executive Branch agencies that all work for Obama. They are the ones who decide whether to meet the sequestration by cutting back on wasteful spending for conferences, i-phones, re-decorating offices--or cutting jobs. When Zippy decides to lay off workers, that´s HIS CHOICE.
Someone in the Repub leadership has to shout out to the media that Obama is a LIAR. Only then, will there be enough media attention to get the truth out.

A third term would require ratification of 3/4 of the states. That´s 38 states. Not enough blue states to do it. There is no Constitutionally supportable way for Obama to remain in the White House beyond 1/17.

But this is the President again playing you, because he thinks you are too stupid and uninformed to pay attention to what has been going on.

Well?

What Obama is saying here is that most Americans agree that cutting spending hurts the economy, but raising taxes doesn’t. And if you do agree, and willingly allow Obama to play you like that, it is you who are stupid.

After several generations of public-school-educated people and colleges which don´t educate, we have a majority of people who ARE that stupid. Ignorant, really. But ignorance and stupidity vs. knowledge of the truth is really what our problem is in America: The truth no longer is sought nor does it matter in this Postmodern culture.

We are in deep, deep trouble unless God sends us a serious leader who isn´t afraid to speak the truth and who can rally the people behind him to change things.

Must it take a revolution, blood in the streets, because that´s all I can see on the horizon.

If a normal person was spending $3500 a month, and one month they were forced to cut back by $85, do you think a normal person could handle $3415 for that month, instead of $3500? Of course.

Unfortunately, our federal government has NEVER done that, so they are in a panic, along with our dumber-than-dirt media.

This is what you get when a lifetime of lies and demagoguery is never challenged. First of all this is not a real cut but a smaller increase from last years baseline. Why not go back to the baseline where Obama took office and have zero increase from now on from the baseline? Didn´t he say that Bush spent too much? This way increases and cuts must be labelled properly cutting out one element of the demagoguery. Obama claims to have offered cuts ( he lied ) so demand that he be specific and name one non defence cut he is willing to make. Since defence is only 12% of the overall budget a cut of an equal dollar amount in defence is a much deeper cut than the same cut to entitlements. Air Force 1 is going to be worn out soon. There should be cuts that affect Obama personally. Put a cap on the mileage for Air Force 1 and leave the emergency response, paid by local governments, alone!

In regards to the headline:

The question becomes; how satisfactory would a case of self-immolation be?
Simply setting his hair on fire and running through the Capital would be called a good start.

Histrionics over a cut of TWU Percent in the Total Federal Budget. And the Sequestration was a WH invention and suggestion! More Balderdash, from the Community Organizer.

I read somewhere that one simple act of Congress will solve all the immediate problems. Postpone the implementation of the ACA (AKA 0bamacare)from 2014 to 2016. Also, IMO. let the people vote in 2014 if the postponement should be permanent.

Where are our attack dogs calling this charlatan out? We´ve had some good articles on here lately describing in detail what bin Obama is doing. He wants no deal. This is about 2014. We should be making a mockery of his theatrics.

Exactly #30. No one bucks Obama.

Why doesn´t the RNC or anyone put out a short ad on TV and the net that calls Obama out on his lies. If the Republicans don´t go around the media to get their message out and at least try to get the truth out there, Obama wins because ultimately the only one who pays for Obama´s follies are the Republicans. The media sees to that. This administration is quite different than any other in history. They will lie, cheat and steal to achieve their goals. The Republicans just don´t get it and they are going to let this country go down because of their denial, laziness, or complicity.

Your analogy is good,#23.
To be more precise, say you´re expecting a 12% raise or $420 you would be expecting $3920 per month. But things are tough and your employer can only give you 8% or $280 per month raise giving you $3780.

Wow! How many meals would you miss?

That´s what this is all about. There are some areas that will actually have cuts, but overall it will be increases that are less that could still be used to build up the cuts and reduce the deficit but will be used to distribute more cell phones.

I don´t know what makes me more weary - that the politicians and media keep lying to our face, or that the voters continue to believe the rhetoric.
If you thought you were going to get a 4% raise, but you only got a 2% raise do you tell everyone that the company cut your pay?!
Would you then tell your kids that they would have no food, when you could easily cut the extravagant cable features if money got tight?

We have a 40% overspending problem and we can´t make the first 2% cut without hysterics? Can you imagine a family or business expecting the banker for the next loan? The stark reality is that our nation is a collection of families, individuals and businesses.

The very discussion makes the point on spending. We can´t provide essential protections because we spent it on what?

Like many, I originally wanted to avoid the sequestration. Then, after the "fiscal cliff" fiasco, passively letting it happen seemed the only way to get some spending cuts. Now, with a lying pResident going over the top on this: I strongly urge that the sequestration take effect. If it doesn´t directly prove that the world will not end and that the scare tactic was just that, it will force Emperor NerØbma to expose his priorities, which will be open to attack - at long last. It will awaken the electorate and focus their attention on the problem. I doubt this will play in the Emperor´s favor. I´m for it. Do it. Bring it on. Call the bluff.

The real reason Bamie´s panties are in a wad is because Boehner out manuvered him.

Obama was too busy crowing about his tax increases. Boehner was able to make 99% of the Bush tax cuts permanent and took leveage away from Obama in saying he would agree to military cuts which Obama thought he would NEVER do. This way GOP will get the spending cuts they wanted and Obama can not do a thing about it

This Man has not had a budget in 3 years now he is crying for MORE time. Tick tock time is up !

You wanted it, you got it. The media won´t pin it on him. They and the sheeple will blame the ´Pubs for anything bad that happens. Odouchebag and the ´Rats know this.

This board has not yet commentedd on how sequestration (in concert with the CR) has already effected our military footprint. With two carrier strike groups standing down, and the depletion of our standing armies, our entire external universe becomes less sustainable.

Someone more knowledgable than I should do the arithmetic, but listening to the world around us banging on our gates is not a good sign. So I think equating the damage done to our national sphere of influence with the lack of cell phones for the mindless only works on the mindless.

BECAUSE, if it goes wrong he can blame the GOP of and if it goes right he gets a photo opp. I would pull his bluff Mr Boehner and stop giving into this little want to be Nero. I think the Democrats have lost their minds and their souls.

Life as we know it will end. The sun will extinguish. And Sir Obama , in his chrome plated armor will draw his sword and ride his white charger and slay the republican dragon. He will turn back the tides. Reignite the sun. And all will be right with the world.

Let the sequester move forward. Cut, cut, cut. Cut everything. Shut down the entire federal government. It won´t affect anyone´s life...except we would get to keep more take home pay instead of sending 1/3 of our checks to an evil, evil government in Washington, D.C.

This Is Probably The LAST Award The
Obama White House Wanted To Win
Independent Journal Review, by Mike Miller    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/10/2014 5:01:47 AM     Post Reply
The Obama administration has won an award named after America’s third president, Thomas Jefferson. That’s the “good” news. The bad news? The award is the “Jefferson Muzzle,” which the administration won for spying on the news media and limiting journalists’ access to Obama. The “coveted” awards announced Wednesday by the Thomas Jefferson Center for the Protection of Free Expression are presented to people and institutions that engage in the most egregious affronts to the First Amendment. (No word on whether Team Obama was a unanimous winner.) As reported by AP, the awards are announced each year on or near the

IRS at the Crossroads

Posted By: StormCnter- 4/10/2014 4:55:00 AM     Post Reply
Congress´s investigation into IRS political targeting accelerated Wednesday, with a referral for the criminal prosecution of a former Treasury official and new evidence to back it up. In a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder, House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp recommends the Justice Department proceed on three probable criminal actions taken by former director of Exempt Organizations Lois Lerner. The letter, which was endorsed in a party-line Ways and Means vote Wednesday morning, discloses new evidence suggesting that Ms. Lerner used her position to single out conservative groups for scrutiny not applied to left-leaning groups. Investigators also charge that

When ‘No’ Means ‘No’

Some people can’t take “no” for an answer. Often that’s an admirable quality. But when you are a witness at the center of a congressional investigation, and the “no” reflects the House Oversight Committee’s decision not to accept your refusal to testify, then it’s not quite so simple. And that is where Lois Lerner, the former Internal Revenue Service official at the center of the IRS scandal, now finds herself. Lerner’s case is by now well known. From 2006 to 2013, she was the IRS’s Director of Exempt Organizations, vested with power to decide which nonprofit organizations receive tax-exempt status, which

What a miserable old blister Henry Aaron has become. In connection with the celebration of the 40th anniversary of Aaron breaking Babe Ruth’s lifetime home run record, he told USA Today that Republicans and conservatives who oppose Barrack Obama and his policies are racists, little better than ku kluxers. A sample: “Sure this country has a black president, but when you look at a black president, President Obama is left with his foot stuck in the mud from all the Republicans with the way he’s treated…back then they had hoods. Now they have neckties and starched shirts.” Charming. In the

As Lori Lowenthal Marcus notes, Brandeis University has in recent years bestowed an honorary degree on Tony Kushner, who called the creation of Israel as a Jewish state “a mistake” and who attacked Israel for ethnic cleansing and for causing “terrible peril in the world.” Brandeis has also honored Desmond Tutu, who compared Israel to Hitler, attacked the “Jewish lobby” as too “powerful” and “scary,” and complained of the “Jewish monopoly of the Holocaust.” Unfortunately, that´s business as usual in the modern academy, including at an academic institution founded out of a special concern for the well-being of Jews in

Key Lawyer in DOJ Office Charging
Dinesh D’Souza is Obama Campaign Donor

If you suspect that politics might have played a role in the Justice Department bringing charges against conservative filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza, consider the financial support to Barack Obama from a key DOJ lawyer in the U.S. Attorney’s office that filed the charges. Each U.S. Attorney’s office has a lone District Election Officer (“DEO”). The DEO is the singular point person in each U.S. Attorney office for any matter related to an election or campaign finance. The U.S. Attorney’s office in the Southern District of New York is the office which brought the campaign finance charges against D’Souza. David Kennedy is the designated

WASHINGTON — Two days before joining other presidents in Texas to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act, President Obama tackled enduring inequality himself on Tuesday, in this case economic disparity based on gender. His action? Signing an executive order barring federal contractors from retaliating against employees who discuss their pay and a memo seeking statistics on contractor salaries. If the photo-friendly ceremony in the East Room was not exactly the stuff of Mount Rushmore, it did reflect a broader question about the state of the presidency a half-century after Lyndon B. Johnson enacted monumental change in American

This is practically old news at this point, but… come on. Via the Desert Sun: A new report from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has labeled BrightSource Energy’s Ivanpah project a “mega-trap” for insects and birds that may get singed or in some cases, burned alive flying through the intense solar radiation reflecting off the thousands of mirrors surrounding three solar towers at the plant in eastern San Bernardino County. The Center for Biological Diversity posted the report to the California Energy Commission website on Monday as part of its testimony opposing BrightSource’s 500-megawatt Palen project, located east of the Coachella

Organizing For Action is, of course, the group founded by Team Obama in 2009 after he was sworn in to push his agenda while in office. It’s the successor to Obama For America, his 2008 campaign outfit. The first OFA got him elected, the second OFA is supposed to help get his policies through Congress. Here’s who was running the scrupulously impartial IRS Exempt Organizations Division that targeted dozens of tea-party nonprofits for extra scrutiny. Was she joking or wasn’t she? That’s the juiciest bit released today by the House Ways and Means Committee, which voted — along party lines,

Last month was a bittersweet seventh birthday for Twitter. The Union of Jewish French Students sued the social-media giant for $50 million in a French court in light of anti-Semitic tweets that carried the hashtag #unbonjuif ("a good Jew"). In January, Twitter agreed to delete the tweets, but the student group now wants the identities of the users who sent the anti-Semitic messages so that they can be prosecuted under French law against hate speech. Twitter is resisting. It claims that as an American company protected by the First Amendment, it does not have to aid government efforts to control

People who signed up early for insurance through the new marketplaces were more likely to be prescribed drugs to treat pain, depression and H.I.V. and were less likely to need contraceptives, according to a new study that provides a much-anticipated look at the population that signed up for coverage under the new health care law. The health of those who enrolled in new coverage is being closely watched because many observers have questioned whether the new marketplaces would attract a large share of sick people, which could lead to higher premiums and ultimately doom the new law.

Attorney General Eric Holder exploded at Texas Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert during a House hearing Tuesday. In the midst of questions about the Justice Department’s failure to divulge documents about the Holy Land Foundation terror funding trial, Gohmert made a side comment about how the House of Representatives found Holder in contempt in 2012 for refusing to turn over documents related to the Fast and Furious gun-running scandal. “I realize that contempt is not a big deal to our attorney general, but it is important that we have proper oversight,” Gohmert said. “You don’t want to go there, buddy!

A few weeks ago, the liberal comedian Bill Maher and conservative strategist and pundit Bill Kristol had a brief spat on Maher’s HBO show, putatively over what instigated the tea party but ultimately over the psychic wound that has divided red America and blue America in the Obama years. The rise of the tea party, explained Maher in a let’s-get-real moment, closing his eyes for a second the way one does when saying something everybody knows but nobody wants to say, “was about a black president.” Both Maher and Kristol carry themselves with a weary cynicism that allows them to

A caveat right off the bat: RAND’s estimate only runs through March 28 whereas the actual deadline for signing up was March 31st. Given the crush of traffic on Healthcare.gov in late March, many more people could have signed up over those last three days than were captured by these numbers. On the other hand, the White House was claiming six million sign-ups as of March 27. There’s no way to reconcile that with RAND’s data. One of them is wrong. Maybe both, in fact. There’s a big spike in Medicaid, just as everyone expected. There’s a less big but

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

As the House prepares for several key votes on former Internal Revenue Service employee Lois G. Lerner and potential legal action, analysts say she and her attorney have mishandled their case by picking and choosing when they want to talk, and to whom they are willing to talk. Ms. Lerner faces a vote in the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on Thursday that could begin the process of accusing her of contempt of Congress. The Ways and Means Committee announced that it will hold a vote Wednesday on whether to officially accuse Ms. Lerner of breaking the law by

Eric Holder ventured off script in a speech Wednesday to the National Action Network, the organization led by MSNBC host and recently-exposed FBI informant Al Sharpton. “I’m pleased to note that the last five years have been defined by significant strides and by lasting reforms,” said Holder at the conference of black activists, before improvising “even in the face, even in the face, of unprecedented, unwarranted, ugly, and divisive adversity.” “If you don’t believe that, if you look at the way, forget about me, forget about me, if you look at the way the attorney general of the United States was treated

A founding father of the conservative movement who is now a star among Tea Party activists is urging the GOP to choose a governor to duel Washington “insider” Hillary Clinton for the White House, saying that 2016 isn´t the best time for Sen. Ted Cruz to run. Often called the “funding father” of conservatism for pioneering direct mail fundraising, Richard A.

As a former President of The Most Powerful Country In The World, George W Bush has significantly greater access to world leaders than most budding artists. (Snip) Art critics have pointed out that a number of the 30 portraits in the exhibition appear to be based on images thrown up by a cursory search of the person´s name in Google Images. In some cases the portrait seems to have been based on the very first image result on the search engine.

My first published column was in a local paper opposing the Equal Rights Amendment for the same reasons that Phyllis Schlafly, a conservative lawyer, campaigned on. As ambiguously written, the ERA, would eliminate the men-only draft requirement, repeal protective laws like sexual assault and eliminate the tendency for mothers to obtain custody over their children in divorce cases. Ironically, one of the arguments that helped sink the amendment from ratification was the fear that single-sex bathrooms would no longer be permitted. In addition, opponents of the amendment also warned that it would lead to abortion on demand and same-sex marriages.

More than a hundred Republican Party elders gathered this weekend in Texas to celebrate George H.W. Bush’s legacy. But many of the event’s participants had another, much simpler agenda: launching a Jeb Bush presidential campaign. The two-day festivities featured a widely covered speech by Jeb. And on the sidelines, former Bush retainers were frank about their hopes that the eldest son could save a party the family has led on and off since 1988. “We have a responsibility to make sure Jeb runs,” said longtime Bush adviser Andy Card after the speech. “If Jeb Bush does not run, shame on us.” Card added,
