Senate GOP ponders ceding
power to President Obama

Politico, by Manu Raju and David Rogers

Original Article

Posted By:PChristopher, 2/27/2013 10:50:42 AM

Days before the March 1 deadline, Senate Republicans are circulating a draft bill that would cancel $85 billion in across-the-board spending cuts and instead turn over authority to President Barack Obama to achieve the same level of savings under a plan to be filed by March 8. The five- page document, which has the tacit support of Senate GOP leaders, represents a remarkable shift for the party. Having railed against Senate Democrats for not passing a budget, Republicans are now proposing that Congress surrender an important piece of its Constitutional “power of the purse”

This is absolute insanity! Giving a power mad wanna be dictator more power which is in reality a complete abdication of the duties that constitutionally is part of the responsiblity of Congress. This is crazy!

The republican party is worthless as a representative of the citizens who voted for them and is now an active partner with Dictator Obama and the democrat party communists in the destruction of this country.

I have voted republican faithfully since I could vote and I will never again vote republican.

Consider the source before you get hot and bothered. This is the plan Krauthammer has been suggesting for weeks. Obama has to make the same dollar value of cuts and in the same agencies, but a bit more discretion is allowed in where some it can be shifted. It´s also a way of making him own the sequestration. So, the "ceding of power" is extremely limited.

Don´t stop voting Republican but be sure to help and vote for conservatives in the Primaries. Voting Democrat is worse (it was not Republicans that gave us Obamacare). The Senate is clearly filled with "women of the night" and we can hope that the House holds firm.

It does remain incomprehensible that the GOP Senators fail to stand for anything, anything.

I am in Arizona and we ended up sending Flake to the Senate who thinks Kerry is fit for SoS. Flake was supposed to be conservative but seems to be a McCain clone instead.

We need a reboot. Clear all laws from the books, clear all active Congress critters, clear all active staff, and start again with the Constitution.

Obama would still have to make the $85 billion in cuts. This would force him to show his priorities. It would take away his ability to demagogue. It´s a smart move and one that has zero chance at passage.

Politico just loves to agitate conservatives.

Beltway insiders convinced that they know better. This is their mess and ceding any power to this dictator is simply being complicit. Sit at a conference table in front of cameras and work it out, but don´t just hand him the keys and expect that he´ll get blamed for wrapping the car around another telephone poll.

While, considering the source, so who knows, but if so, it seems like a reasonable approach. It causes BHO to own the cuts. It also protects by capping the defense cuts. Let´s see where he would could the $42.5b.

I´m beginning to think the best voter strategy for us is to vote for the most liberal democrat running in every election - it will crash the country faster and provide a better contrast of liberal vs conservatism rather than the current slow drip to socialism that these rinos facilitate. A quick crash is less likely to go unnoticed by Joe xbox.

Assuming you are correct, #22, there is only one problme. Democrats never, ever cut spending. Remember the $3 in cuts they promised for every $1 in tax hikes? The cuts never happened.

While there may be a method in this madness, and remember this is a Politico article so it has zero credibility, it´s unlikely to turn out well for the Pubbies.

So, the Pubtanic moves ever closer to the waiting iceberg, this time with First Mate McConnell at the helm as Captain Rove roams the decks looking for a Tea Partier to throw overboard.

#7,17,22 &24 What makes you think this would make Obama own anything. The media has his back and would spin anything he did and make it the Repubs fault, if he even did anything. Second, this is the guy who has not met other legally required reports, actions and budgets. So what the he11 makes you think this would be any different. This is just one more example of the weak knee´d Repubs giving in to Obama and being complicit in the destruction of this country.

Remember, we talked about this before or just after the election: By no longer playing his game by his rules of circular deniability, he has no one to blame for the disasters he creates.

At the same time, why is no one in Washington talking seriously about impeachment? Or mass demonstrations?

The sequester is now law. It has to happen unless the GOP agrees to stop it. That´s not what this is about. The same amount of cuts will happen, the same balance (defense/discretionary) has to happen, but it gives the president the ability to cut here instead of there. It might avoid a bit of the Defense Department pain if, for instance, the cuts are in contract administration instead of MRE supplies for the troops. His choices, therefore his blame if he chooses wrong. Why all the squalling?

Do some of you really believe that the President would use this ability to ease fiscal pain? This is the man who has systematically been destroying our economy since he entered office. This is the man who has been threatening for weeks that sequester ´cuts´ are going to hurt us horribly. Do you really think that if we give him any discretion on where to make those ´cuts´ he will do so in the best interest of the nation or the economy?

Do you also believe that the same media that has shielded him from blame for everything else he has done is going to allow him to be blamed for actual hurts caused when he cripples certain departments in order to prove how bad things would get if the Government is denied its rightful share of taxpayer´s money? Don´t tell me he can´t and please don´t try to tell me he won´t. This administration has already released criminals under the guise of sequester cuts. We have seen that story plastered across the headlines and on TV already. Right?

Obama to Russia: There
Will Be ´Costs´ for Ukraine
Associated Press, by Julie Pace    Original Article
Posted By: PChristopher- 3/1/2014 7:27:49 AM     Post Reply
President Barack Obama is warning Russia "there will be costs" for any military maneuvers it launches in Ukraine, a move U.S. and Ukrainian officials say they believe to be already underway. Officials say Obama may retaliate by canceling a trip to Russia this summer for an international summit and could also cut off trade discussions with Moscow. But it´s unclear whether those moves will have any impact on Russia´s calculus in Ukraine, which is at the center of what many see as a tug of war between East and West. "Any violation of Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity would be deeply destabilizing," Obama declared Friday

Two hungry fan bases and the wealth of the New York metropolitan area had some guessing that Super Bowl XLVIII would turn out to be the most expensive ticket in Super Bowl history. However, judging from the reaction of the resale ticket market in the past 24 hours, it could turn out to be one of the least expensive. On Friday, nine days before the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks meet at MetLife Stadium, the cheapest ticket to buy for the Super Bowl was $1,779 on NFL Ticket Exchange, the league´s official resale site. That´s $409 cheaper than it was

13 House Democrats offer bill demanding

Thirteen House Democrats have proposed legislation that would require the governemnt to study hate speech on the Internet, mobile phones and television and radio. The bill, sponsoed by Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) and 12 other House Democrats, would look at how those media are used to "advocate and encourage violent acts and the commission of crimes of hate." The Hate Crime Reporting Act, H.R. 3878, is meant to update a 20-year old study from the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA). That study, delivered to Congress in 1993, looked at hate speech on radio, TV and computer bulletin boards.

Americans think poor leadership within government is the most important problem facing the nation, according to a new poll. Gallup says 21 percent of people put their dissatisfaction with Congress and politicians in general just above the economy, at 18 percent. Unemployment and health care issues come in third, at 16 percent. Only 3 percent of people cite issues like foreign aid and immigration, and 2 percent say welfare and “a lack of respect for each other” are the top problems. Gallup says concern about the government spiked during the government shutdown in October

A tactic used by the federal government to gather information for anti-drunken and drugged driving programs is coming under criticism in cities around the country, and some local police agencies say they will no longer take part. The tactic involves a subcontractor for the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that uses off-duty but uniformed police at voluntary roadside checkpoints where motorists are asked on their behavior behind the wheel. In some cases, workers at the checkpoints collect blood and saliva samples, in addition to breath samples. NHTSA has said previously that the surveys do not collect any DNA.

If you listen to the chattering class in Washington, D.C., Hillary Clinton is a virtual certainty for the 2016 Democratic nomination, and the front runner in the next presidential race. But in private, rumors persist that the former Secretary of State may not even be capable of making it to Iowa and New Hampshire. Clinton, these skeptics often say, will not run for president again because of health concerns. These ubiquitous rumors of her health have been fueled in part by the supermarket tabloids. The National Enquirer wrote in 2012 that Clinton had brain cancer, something a spokesman dismissed then as “absolute

The “greatest buried treasure ever unearthed in the United States” is about to be hit by the tax collector. According to Kathleen Pender, a columnist at the San Francisco Chronicle, the couple who found in cans buried on their property more than 1,400 rare gold coins worth more than $10 million will probably owe close to half of that sum in federal and state income tax, whether or not they sell the coins. She quoted a 2013 tax guide in which the IRS stated: “If you find and keep property that does not belong to you that has been lost or

Bill Clinton´s controversial couplings has reached a new level after he was pictured spending time with prostitutes at a recent charity event.

Identified as Ava Adora and Barbie Girl by TMZ, both of the women are known to work at the Bunny Ranch brothel near Carson City. (Photo) Clinton, who infamously faced impeachment after having an affair with intern Monica Lewinsky while he was still in the White House, is seen grinning ear to ear

Kerry Kennedy has been found not guilty of drugged driving — and gave herself a hearty round of applause after jurors were dismissed from court by a Westchester County judge. The jury handed down the verdict after just 30 minutes of deliberation Friday morning. The six-member panel had deliberated about 45 minutes Thursday night after being handed the case. Kennedy — who had faced up to a year in jail if convicted — hugged both her lawyers as the verdict was read, and then began clapping after the jurors left the courtroom. Her lawyers and a band of supporters, including

President Barack Obama is warning Russia "there will be costs" for any military maneuvers it launches in Ukraine, a move U.S. and Ukrainian officials say they believe to be already underway. Officials say Obama may retaliate by canceling a trip to Russia this summer for an international summit and could also cut off trade discussions with Moscow. But it´s unclear whether those moves will have any impact on Russia´s calculus in Ukraine, which is at the center of what many see as a tug of war between East and West. "Any violation of Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity would be deeply destabilizing," Obama declared Friday

The question isn’t why Arthur Chu brought his peculiar, buzzer-smacking brand of game play to “Jeopardy.” The question is why, in 50 long years of the show’s history, more people haven’t done the same. Chu, if you haven’t heard of him, is the “Jeopardy” contestant nonchalantly bulldozing America’s collective nostalgic vision for how game shows should work, who cruised to his eighth straight victory on Thursday night. The insurance compliance technician from Ohio who is also a “stand-up comedian, Shakespearean actor, improviser, tour guide, genius and, most importantly, voiceover artist,” according to his Web site — has used his renegade style

Former President Bill Clinton has signed on to promote a new Democratic voter project, claiming that the GOP is trying with voter identification laws to block divorced women, college students, blacks, the disabled and younger Americans from voting. “There is no greater assault on our core values than the rampant efforts to restrict the right to vote,” Clinton said in a YouTube video distributed as part of the Democratic Party´s new Voter Expansion Project unveiled Thursday.

Benghazi: Former CIA acting Director Mike Morell might be recalled for testimony to determine if he misled Congress and doctored the White House response to a terrorist attack to ensure President Obama´s re-election. The administration´s tangled web of Benghazi lies might be unraveling some more. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers, R-Mich., has told Fox News that Morell, a former deputy director and twice acting director of the Central Intelligence Agency, will likely be recalled to testify. The recall comes after new charges surfaced that Morell misled Congress about what he knew regarding the 2012 Benghazi attack and when he knew it.

President Barack Obama fired a few verbs across the front armor of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s tanks, in a rushed statement just after 5 p.m. on Friday. The statement was made as Russian forces — including attack helicopters — appeared in peripheral parts of the Ukraine that are largely populated by ethnic Russians. There’s no evidence that Obama wants to get involved in what may become a war between the Ukraine and Russia. He did not threaten any significant retaliation if Russian force attack nor did he offer military aid to the Ukraine. He announced that Vice President Joe Biden — but not
