Maxine Waters: Sequester Could
Cause ‘170 Million Jobs’ to Be Lost

National Review Online, by Charles C. W. Cooke

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 2/28/2013 6:21:44 PM

Maxine Waters (D., Calif.), in an attempt to outdo President Obama’s claims that even minor cuts will bring the republic’s long run to an ignominious end, warned today that the sequester could cause “over 170 million jobs” to be lost:(Snip for video)134 million people have jobs in America.

Comments:
That´s all of the text. I hope there is enough to pass.

That´s Dallas´s own dim bulb, Eddie Bernice Johnson, at Waters´s right.

Back when Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae were going down the drain, and the head of one of the two agencies was under scrutiny, Maxine Waters said that everything was fine, that the republicans were being racist because the man heading the agency, Raines, is black.
Raines took his 90 million dollars in bogus bonus money and resigned. The agencies were terminally ill.

Wow, there must have 8 brain cells total on that stage. Pelosi´s created 500 million jobs so losing 170 million isn´t so bad.

When you get right down to it, there really isn´t much more that can be said about Maxine Waters. Plus, it´s probably better not to post what you´re thinking.

Maxine is right, but low. The sequester will also cost jobs in foreign countries. I estimate that 90% of all jobs on the planet will be lost. The only jobs that are safe are in creating internet porn and the government. Everything else is doomed.

Well....here´s my take on this. 170 million jobs lost. Since too many black "men" don´t work and black women do, I´d say that a lot of black women will be among the 170 million.

The making of a Maxine Waters:
1. Tell all blacks that the government should take care of them due to how their ancestors from 150 years ago were treated.
2. Set up a welfare system that discourages marriage.
3. Provide high rise apartment warehouses for them where drug dealers gave easy access.
4. Raise children from unmarried mothers in drug infested squaler.
5. Keep telling them for generations their poor condition is due to Republicans.
6. Continue making them dependent with promises of more and more government "help".
7. Drill into their head that whites still want to enslave them and that only the government can prevent it from happening.
8. Be sure they stay ignorant by keeping generations of the children in substandard schools with worthless union teachers but convince them they should never believe any white person wished them well.

AND THEN 94% WILL VOTE ONLY FOR ANOTHER LIBERAL BLACK THAT WILL KEEP THEM IN THE SAME CONDITION. Wallah! Maxine Waters

Something about blacks and math, I guess. Remember the million man march?

Also, the black congressman who claimed 200 million slaves were drowned on their way to America.

Assuming slave ships held 200 slaves at a time, that would have been one million ships dumping slaves overboard to keep from getting caught. Over a 50 year period, that would be 6 slave ships per day drowning 200 slaves every day, 7 days a week, 365 days per year for 50 years.

That, of course, doesn´t count the ships that got through.

Idiots are in power in our country. Cut off the money. 100% of it. Now.

Pubbies aren´t much better. The Pubtanic churns onward toward the iceberg.

Why are all of the sudden are these die hard liberals striking out? If it´s because of Hillary, forget it. If history serves when a regime change happens; so do the people of that regime(in our case the administration and Congress), and not for their good. Of course, we will get ours; but as slaves. Too bad the low info voters don´t see their leaders won´t be their to lead them to their fake fantasy land, the new regime will be there to lead them to hell. Pick up a book for goodness sakes and read your history.

A parking ticket, traffic citation or involvement in a minor fender-bender are enough to get a person´s name and other personal information logged into a massive, obscure federal database run by the U.S. military. The Law Enforcement Information Exchange, or LinX, has already amassed 506.3 million law enforcement records ranging from criminal histories and arrest reports to field information cards filled out by cops on the beat even when no crime has occurred. LinX is a national information-sharing hub for federal, state and local law enforcement agencies. It is run by the Naval Criminal Investigative Service, raising concerns among some

This week brought yet another tussle in the altogether imaginary public battle over Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s future at the Supreme Court, this time in the form of a column in the Los Angeles Times by Erwin Chemerinsky, dean of the UC–Irvine law school, and someone whose opinions I always take extremely seriously. Chemerinsky argues, as many have argued before him, that Ginsburg—who turned 81 on Saturday, has survived one type of cancer and one cancer scare, and has broken her ribs twice in the past two years—should retire this summer in order to ensure that “a Democratic president will be

This week, after backing Davidson in 2010, the Planned Parenthood PAC endorsed Democratic challenger Bill Smith for Davidson’s seat. “We are extremely disappointed by current 164th District Representative Margo Davidson’s votes on SB 732 and HB 818,” Sari Stevens, Executive Director of Planned Parenthood Pennsylvania Advocates and PAC said in a statement. “We have faced unprecedented attacks here in Pennsylvania straight out of the Tea Party playbook, and Representative Davidson voted

Malaysia admitted the technology that has spontaneously exploded on other flights was being carried on the missing plane. Malaysian officials have confirmed that a consignment of lithium-ion batteries was in the cargo hold of Flight MH370. “These are not regarded as dangerous goods,” said the CEO of Malaysian Airlines, Ahmad Jauhari Yahya, “and were packed as recommended by the International Civil Aviation Organisation.” Little attention has been given to what was in the cargo hold of the Boeing 777, yet this would automatically be of interest to accident investigators.

In the final push before the end of open enrollment on March 31, the Obama administration has spent millions to promote Obamacare. From January to the end of March the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, which is administering the president’s signature health-care law will have spent $52 million on paid media for Obamacare. Meaning, if all goes according to the most recent plan and the administration reaches its revised enrollment goal of six million, taxpayers will have spent nearly $9.00 per signup on advertising alone. With an average pay out of $17.3 million a month on advertising alone, past months have already

The environmental left is seeing Democrats the Keystone XL pipeline, and raising them natural-gas exports. The question of who folds on this issue will play big in this midterm election year. A split is growing in the Democratic Party, one that ought to rival the divisions on the right that the headlines trumpet. Greens are increasingly bitter about President Obama —annoyed that he´s dropped climate legislation, scaled back green subsidies, ignored fracking. They´ve channeled their frustration into the fight against Keystone, warning that they´ll turn their significant money and resources against Mr. Obama´s party if the president approves more "dirty oil."

For all of the nonchalant assurances that he is neither a “dictator” nor an “emperor,” Barack Obama is certainly trigger-happy with the power jokes. The president’s latest witticism was inspired by his much-debated appearance on Between Two Ferns, during which he traded carefully scripted barbs with actor Zach Galifianakis. “Zach actually was pretty nervous,” Obama explained to Ryan Seacrest in a postmortem interview. “His whole character is to go after the guest, and I think he was looking around and seeing all these Secret Service guys with guns and thinking, I wonder what happens here if I cross the line? But

Russia Now That Obama Isn’t Running For President

Eighteen months ago former Clinton Secretary of State Madeline Albright attacked Governor Romney’s warning that Russia is America’s number one geopolitical foe: “He is not up to date and that is a very dangerous aspect; that’s just an example of his 20th century approach to 21t century issues.” The idea: conflict with Russia was a relic of the cold war and that since the now infamous “reset,” identifying them as a threat and a problem was naive and silly. A Presidential candidate who looks back, rather than forward, was out of touch and dangerous. Today on MSNBC’s Morning Joe show,

Another senior minister in Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s cabinet sharply criticized American foreign policy Tuesday, anonymously joining the open attack by Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon. Speaking to journalists in the Knesset, the minister said the Americans’ handling of the crisis in Ukraine proved that Israel could no longer rely on the United States. He said it was clear to everyone that the US had never intended to take military action against the Russians. “The lesson of this crisis screams to the sky,” the minister said. “US foreign policy is collapsing all over the world. America showing weakness in Russia has implications on

Let me go out on a limb: The Malaysian airliner did not get sucked into a black hole, vanish over the Indian Ocean equivalent of the Bermuda Triangle or crash-land on the spooky island from “Lost.” Those “theories” were actually discussed on CNN this week. Host Don Lemon dismissed them as “preposterous” before asking one of his assembled “expert” guests — there were six of them waiting expectantly in their boxes on the screen — whether, you know, such ideas really were so preposterous. At which point the nonstop coverage of this tragedy entered the Twilight Zone. The disappearance of Malaysia Airlines

Liberals are expressing outrage today about the court ruling that a federal agency is required to help Kansas and Arizona ensure that those registering to vote are citizens. The case decided in a U.S. district court in Wichita revolved around the U.S. Election Assistance Commission’s decision to deny the requests from the two states that proof of citizenship be added to a national voter registration form when distributed in Kansas and Arizona. Judge Eric F. Melgren rightly ruled that the agency had no authority to tell the states their requests were invalid. He noted that the decision by the election

On February 22, popular protests led to the fall of the pro-Russian government of Viktor Yanukovych in Kiev. On February 27, in response to this setback, President Vladimir Putin sent forces into Crimea to seize it from Ukraine. On March 19, President Barack Obama delivered his response. He reassured Putin, “We are not going to be getting into a military excursion in Ukraine.” Obama added, “What we are going to do is mobilize all of our diplomatic resources to make sure that we’ve got a strong international coalition that sends a clear message.” The message is clear. The problem is

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.

(Video) The Obama ladies are in the house — the house of China, that is. 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.

Is Barack Obama simply too busy to be Chief Executive of the United States? Apparently. One of the primary functions of the president is to keep the nation safe, to preserve it from its enemies. To do that effectively, one would actually have to maintain something of a consistent level of attention to the moving pieces that directly influence how future events will unfold. None other than the truly sycophantic thinks for a second that President Obama cares a whit for anything that does not involve fundamentally altering the social composition of this country. Or golf. During the five-plus years

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. And he protested to him his concerns about these comments,” State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki told reporters Wednesday. The U.S., Psaki reaffirmed, maintains an “unshakable

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

Black students are more likely to be suspended from U.S. public schools — even as tiny preschoolers. The racial disparities in American education, from access to high-level classes and experienced teachers to discipline, were highlighted in a report released Friday by the Education Department´s civil rights arm. The suspensions — and disparities — begin at the earliest grades. Black children represent about 18 percent of children in preschool programs in schools, but they make up almost half of the preschoolers who are suspended more than once, the report said. Six percent of the nation´s districts with preschools reported suspending at

Ellen DeGeneres was a completely slavish toady to President Obama as he appeared on her show to sell Obamacare -- not to young people, but to mothers. The president made his pitch to "especially all the moms out there who may have young people – 26, 27, do not have health insurance, but they think they’re invincible and nothing’s ever going to happen to ‘em – what we’ve said is you never know what life is going to throw at ya."

College basketball can wait. Did you know that March is actually National Nutrition Month? Today, First Lady Michelle Obama urged Americans via her "Let´s Move!" initiative to challenge their family members to eat one new fruit or vegetable per week in March to faithfully observe the occasion. "March is National Nutrition Month and you can celebrate by challenging your family to try a new fruit or vegetable each week," First Lady Michelle Obama said in an e-mail to supporters today. Never mind that there were less than two "each weeks" left in National Nutrition Month when the e-mail challenge was

Warm temperatures, colorful wildflowers. What´s not to like, about early signs of spring? Climate scientists at NASA say these early signs could be tied to global warming, and the consequences are troubling. 9NEWS talked to NASA scientist Dr. Compton Tucker at the Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland. He said that on average, the last frost of the year is happening about five days earlier than it did just five decades ago. Tucker said his conclusions are drawn from a fleet of Earth-observing satellites that have been monitoring our planet for more than 40 years. That satellite data combined with

Today’s Washington Post features an article by Steven Mufson and Juliet Eilperin headlined, “The biggest lease holder in Canada’s oil sands isn’t Exxon Mobil or Chevron. It’s the Koch brothers.” The article was based on a newly-issued two-page report by the far-left International Forum on Globalization. The Post reported: You might expect the biggest lease owner in Canada’s oil sands, or tar sands, to be one of the international oil giants, like Exxon Mobil or Royal Dutch Shell. But that isn’t the case. The biggest lease holder in the northern Alberta oil sands is a subsidiary of Koch Industries, the privately-owned
