Where Does the Money Go?
Power Line, by John Hinderaker

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 3/2/2013 5:24:28 AM

With liberals shrieking hysterically at the prospect of small cuts in federal spending–equal to 2 1/2 french fries out of a Big Mac Extra Value Meal–this is an opportune time to talk about where all of that borrowed federal money goes. We are saddling our children with $17 trillion in debt to do what, exactly? Well, we are keeping Barack Obama in the style to which he has become accustomed, for one thing. Like golfing with Tiger Woods, at a cost sufficient to preserve 341 federal employees from being furloughed, if we think that is a desirable goal.

There´s no question that Obama exploits the liberal culture of self reward like no one else in history.It should be really embarrassing that one stupid golf outing amounts to saving the jobs of 341 federal workers.

The problem is this guy really thinks he deserves the wasted taxpayer money he spends on himself.

Teacher´s unions buy his stupid books by the caseload to enhance his private income every year and as a reward he conjures up plenty of new ways to reward these people. Most of them faint in the aisles when they hear him say "investments" in education,while most of us are aghast at the failure of the public school system.

They probably have a 100 or so people working at the WH who simply keep track of Obama´s pay to play schemes. After a 500K donation and some face time with Obama,he makes a note to make sure the donors are properly rewarded with a government grant or social favor like letting illegals out of jail and pre-blaming the sequester for it.

The idea of releasing latinos alone,tramples on other prisoner´s right of equal protection.The funny part about releasing these people is they´ll no longer receive their daily health food trays of fruit and vegetables.Or the scenic hanging baskets.

Here´s a simple question:
Where are all of the Unspent monies going?

~22 to 30 Billion Dollars are being cut from the INCREASE of money being spent this year.

MANY TIMES that amount in services, departments, workforce, and supplies are being CUT in this FIRST year.

Where is that money???

How Not to Debate
What We Should Be

Well, that was quick. Just three days after it began, the debate about what we do at the movies has reached its nadir. A quick catch-up: On Monday, tech guy Hunter Walk wrote a blog post saying that movie theaters should offer screenings with brighter lighting and WiFi, where people who want to can tweet and text and do all kinds of other "second screen experience" things. Many people found this proposal appalling. Or, if not appalling, certainly a little depressing. Then this morning, another tech guy, writer and self-described entrepreneur Anil Dash, wrote a smug, scolding piece

Two former UMass-Dartmouth students with ties to Boston Marathon terror bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev were indicted today on obstruction of justice charges for allegedly trying to impede the Boston Marathon terror bombing investigation. Kazakhstan nationals Dias Kadyrbayev, 19, and Azamat Tazhayakov, 19, are accused of helping to get rid of incriminating evidence that Tsarnaev left behind in his college dorm room on April 18, three days after the terror bombing killed three and wounded 260 in Boston. The two face charges of conspiracy to obstruct justice and obstruction of justice.

DES MOINES, Iowa -- At least three people in two states have beaten astronomical odds to become the nation´s latest Powerball millionaires. Sue Dooley, senior drawing manager production coordinator for the Multi-State Lottery Association, said late Wednesday night that three tickets matched the winning numbers and will split the lottery´s latest massive jackpot: $448 million. "We had three grand prize winners," Dooley said. "One was in Minnesota and two were in New Jersey." The winning numbers drawn Wednesday night were: 05, 25, 30, 58, 59 and Powerball 32.

In a twist of irony, a West Virginia woman is trying to collect money from a collection agency. Diana Mey, of Wheeling, W.Va., won the largest judgment ever against an abusive debt collection company -- more than $10 million. "I´m a mom and I´m a housewife, and I´m an accidental activist," Mey said. From her small-town home base in Wheeling, Mey went after a debt collection empire that hounds people nationwide -- and won. But she still hasn´t received any money. "I don´t know that I´ll ever collect a dime," she said, "but if I can get their operation

A poll released Friday by Public Policy Polling found that Alaska voters would pick former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton over the state´s former Republican governor, Sarah Palin, if the two women were to face off in the 2016 presidential election. Clinton led with 49 percent in the hypothetical match-up, with Palin at 40 percent, a nine-point gap. As of July 3, Republicans comprised 27 percent of the state´s registered voters and Democrats made up just 14 percent. The last time Alaskans opted for the Democrats´ presidential candidate was in 1964. Clinton trails five other hypothetical GOP candidates –

Radical lawyer Lynne Stewart is pleading for compassionate release from prison, saying she has only months to live. Too bad Stewart showed no such compassion when she aided and abetted her convicted client, Omar Abdel Rahman, who is serving a life sentence for plotting a series of assassinations and bombings that includes the first attack on the World Trade Center. Stewart herself was later convicted of providing material support for terrorists by transmitting messages from Rahman to his followers. Now Stewart is asking for release on the grounds that she is suffering from Stage IV cancer.

In a video emailed to supporters last week, mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner made a plea to New York voters. “I know that there are newspaper editors and other politicians that say, boy I wish that guy Weiner would quit,” he said into the camera. “They don’t know New York, [they] certainly don’t know me. Quit isn’t the way we roll in New York City. We fight through tough things.” But “tough” doesn’t even begin to describe Weiner’s predicament.

We might never know if the man we´ve been watching for a couple of decades now ever was "Alex being Alex."

MILWAUKEE — Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley, speaking candidly to a group of reporters Saturday, said he has spent the last several months weighing a bid for the presidency and laying what he called the “framework of a candidacy for 2016.” O’Malley last spoke at length about his presidential ambitions in April, when he told The Baltimore Sun he would give “serious consideration” to a White House race as he rounds out what will be his second and last term as governor of Maryland. Asked how that process has been going so far, O’Malley said, “It’s going well.” He described a handful

FOR ALL the soaring triumphs, soul-testing trials, and crushing tragedies that would befall Jack and Jackie during his historic presidency, the most celebrated couple in the world would finally bridge the yawning emotional chasm between them only within the walls of the White House. When Jackie Kennedy first set foot in the White House as America’s first lady, she could not have dreamed that this would be where she and Jack would come closest to fulfilling her dream of a happy marriage. “I said to myself, ‘It will be such a goldfish bowl.

Pay-up time for Brawley:

Twenty-five years after accusing an innocent man of rape, Tawana Brawley is finally paying for her lies. Last week, 10 checks totaling $3,764.61 were delivered to ex-prosecutor Steven Pagones — the first payments Brawley has made since a court determined in 1998 that she defamed him with her vicious hoax. A Virginia court this year ordered the money garnisheed from six months of Brawley’s wages as a nurse there. She still owes Pagones $431,000 in damages. And she remains defiantly unapologetic. “It’s a long time coming,” said Pagones, 52, who to this day is more interested in extracting a confession from Brawley than cash.

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie holds a narrow lead among Republicans for the party’s 2016 presidential nomination, but even more GOP voters say he’s the candidate they least want to see nominated. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that Christie earns 21% support when Republican voters are asked whom they would vote for if the party’s primary in their state were held today. Florida Senator Marco Rubio runs a close second with 18% of the GOP vote, followed by former Florida Governor Jeb Bush at 16% and Kentucky Senator Rand Paul with 15% of the vote.

Barack Obama delivered one gaffe after another in his August 6 interview with Jay Leno, but the networks that usually mock every mistake or slip of the tongue made by Republicans ignored the President´s verbal mishaps. ABC´s Good Morning America, CBS´s This Morning and NBC´s Today show, on Wednesday morning, all bypassed the chance to criticize Obama for: downplaying the threat of terrorism; falsely claiming Vladimir Putin once ran the KGB; placing the Atlantic coast cities of Savannah, Charleston and Jacksonville on the Gulf of Mexico; confusing the Winter Olympics with the Summer Olympics.

WASHINGTON — U.S. officials insisted Tuesday that extraordinary security measures for nearly two dozen diplomatic posts were to thwart an “immediate, specific threat,” a claim questioned by counterterrorism experts, who note that the alert covers an incongruous set of nations from the Middle East to an island off the southern coast of Africa. Analysts don’t dispute the Obama administration’s narrative that it’s gleaned intelligence on a plot involving al Qaida’s most active affiliate, the Yemen-based Arabian Peninsula branch. That would explain why most U.S. posts in the Persian Gulf are on lockdown, including the U.

Critics of the president are convinced that Barack Obama will do lasting damage to the U.S. I doubt it. Obama came to power in the third year of large Democratic congressional majorities. In his first referendum, he lost the House and he may soon lose the Senate; in other words, there followed a somewhat normal reaction against a majority party. Obama’s popularity rating is well below 50%, despite an obsequious media and a brilliantly negative billion-dollar campaign that long ago turned Mitt Romney into a veritable elevator-using, equestrian-marrying, canine-hating monster. In the second term, there is little

Former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney jumped into the debate over the GOP’s future Tuesday night, warning congressional Republicans against forcing a government shutdown in their quest to stop President Barack Obama’s signature health care law. Romney addressed more than 200 donors on the shores of Lake Winnipesaukee at a fundraiser for the New Hampshire Republican Party, staged just four miles from the vacation home where he has spent much of the summer with his family. The event was closed to the media, but his office released his prepared remarks.

Ending a war is a good thing. Killing civilians a bad thing. Deliberately targeting civilians is murder, and is never morally licit, even in pursuit of a good thing such as ending a war. The tens of thousands of Japanese non-combatants we killed 68 years ago this week with two nuclear bombs were not “collateral damage” of military strikes. They were the intended targets. We hoped that mass murder would bring the Japanese emperor to surrender. It worked, and American and Japanese soldiers’ lives were probably saved by it —

The U.S. State Department issued a global alert about the terrorist threat allegedly posed by Al-Qaeda in Yemen. The USA announced the closure of its missions in the Middle East and Africa, and their example was followed by France, Britain, and Germany. However, this was only an attempt to justify the activities of the National Security Agency.Last Saturday, right after alerting of the terror threat civilians and BOLO complex ("be on the lookout") that includes law enforcement and federal officials, President Barack Obama went to play golf, and then celebrated his birthday at the presidential retreat at Camp David.

Over the last week, there has been a lot of buzz about a supposed CIA angle to the Benghazi story. Specifically, it has been alleged that a substantial number of CIA employees were on the ground in Benghazi, carrying out a mission that involved rounding up Libyan weapons and transferring them to rebels in Syria. Further, it has been reported that the CIA has leaned on its employees not to cooperate with Congressional investigations or the media, and it has been suggested that the CIA’s role in Benghazi may be related to the al Qaeda

In a rare diplomatic snub, President Obama is canceling plans to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow next month. The decision reflects both U.S. anger over Russia´s harboring of National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden and growing frustration within the Obama administration over what it sees as Moscow´s stubbornness on other key issues, including missile defense and human rights. Obama will still attend the Group of 20 economic summit in St. Petersburg, Russia, but a top White House official said the president had no plans to hold one-on-one talks with Putin while there.

In a move some claim is tantamount to social engineering, the Department of Housing and Urban Development is imposing a new rule that would allow the feds to track diversity in America’s neighborhoods and then push policies to change those it deems discriminatory. The policy is called, "Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing." It will require HUD to gather data on segregation and discrimination in every single neighborhood and try to remedy it. HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan unveiled the federal rule at the NAACP convention in July. "Unfortunately, in too many of our hardest hit communities, no matter how hard

Obama will deliver his speech from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial — the same place where King spoke 50 years ago. The Let Freedom Ring ceremony will be held Aug. 28. "It’s obviously a historic, seminal event in the country. It’s part of my generation’s formative memory and it’s a good time for us to do some reflection,"
