Sequester Exaggerations Exposed
By Egypt Foreign Aid

Investor´s Business Daily, by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 3/4/2013 8:22:27 PM

Mideast: What are we to make of the U.S. suddenly finding $250 million to spare for Egypt during a supposedly devastating sequester? Has this administration miraculously parted a sea of red ink? No one can say Secretary of State John Kerry isn´t predictable in his first weeks as the nation´s chief diplomat. The ex-Vietnam protester, who contemptuously threw his medals on the steps of the U.S. Capitol four decades ago, is giving the new post-Arab Spring Egypt under Muslim Brotherhood crony Mohammed Morsi some $250 million in immediate foreign aid, termed "economic assistance."

No! You mean...Obama would *lie* to the public to get his way??? Surely not! (where´s a roll-eyes emoticon when ya´ need one...)

Anyone who´s watched this bozo administration literally burn public money - with results the average high-school economics student could exceed...

Has a pretty good idea the reason the guy doesn´t call himself ´Barry Sotero´ any longer...

...is the potential for his initials being constantly used to describe him. Accurately at that.

Defenders of Liberty simply propose that we be allowed to live as we see fit in voluntary cooperation or solitude. The results of this Liberty are wealth and health and freedom.

Marxist always start with proclaiming their moral superiority which justifies their micromanagement of everything which leads to starvation and suffering every damn time.

On the one hand, we´re inflicting economic pain on the people of Iran through sanctions because Iran´s dictators won´t end their nuclear program; but, on the other hand, we´re making it easier for the dictator of Egypt to solidify his power and hurt his people by rewarding him with hundreds of millions of dollars of ´´economic assistance.´´

The only common thread in Obama´s Iran and Egyptian policies is to inflict pain on the people of both countries.

Health Reform: The American people don´t want it, even Democrats think it´s a train wreck, and now members of the agency charged with enforcing it have said it´s hazardous to our health, financial and otherwise. While testifying Thursday on Capitol Hill, Daniel Werfel, acting chief of the Internal Revenue Service, the agency charged with enforcing ObamaCare´s mandates, told a House committee he would rather keep his current health insurance plan than make the switch to one offered by the Affordable Care Act. Perhaps he admitted what most Americans believe because he is only the "acting" director about to be replaced.

One big question raised by IRS political targeting is whether Obama officials or their bureaucratic allies unleashed the power of the administrative state for partisan ends. Now evidence is emerging that officials at another agency, the Federal Election Commission, used their enforcement power as an anti-conservative sword. The House Ways and Means Committee this week released emails showing that, in 2008 and 2009, the FEC´s general counsel staff sought tax information about conservative political groups from Lois Lerner of the IRS. Ms. Lerner is the IRS official who took the Fifth before Congress rather than tell her side of the

A (New) Lost Generation: As the media focus on a slight drop in unemployment, an ugly trend gets ignored: the declining participation of young Americans in the job market. We´ll pay for this for decades to come. We keep hearing the job market is "improving" or even "solid," with 162,000 new positions created in July and unemployment falling to 7.4%, the lowest since 2008. But one group is sitting it out. And it´s the one that most enthusiastically embraced Barack Obama in both of his presidential elections: America´s young.

Up to 35 CIA operatives were working in Benghazi the night of the terrorist attack, dozens more than previously reported, raising questions anew of why

The CIA has been subjecting operatives to monthly polygraph tests in an attempt to suppress details of a US arms smuggling operation in Benghazi that was ongoing when its ambassador was killed by a mob in the city last year, according to reports. Up to 35 CIA operatives were working in the city during the attack last September on the US consulate that resulted in the death of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans, according to CNN.

Climatologists at Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment have warned the likely rate of change over the next century will be at least 10 times quicker than any climate shift since the dinosaurs became extinct. If the trend continues at its current rapid pace, it will place significant stress on terrestrial ecosystems around the world, and many species will need to make behavioral, evolutionary or geographic adaptations to survive, they said.

The nation´s most active death penalty state is running out of its execution drug. The Texas Department of Criminal Justice said Thursday that its remaining supply of phenobarbital expires in September and that no alternatives have been found. It wasn´t immediately clear whether two executions scheduled for next month would be delayed. The state has already executed 11 death-row inmates this year, and at least seven more have execution dates in coming months. "We will be unable to use our current supply of phenobarbital after it expires," agency spokesman Jason Clark said. "We are exploring all options at this time."

After purchasing the Boston Globe in 1993 for a then-record $1.1 billion, the financially troubled New York Times just announced it sold the 141 year-old paper to Boston Red Sox owner John Henry for a mere $70 million. That´s a straight 93% loss. Figuring in two decades of inflation would only make it worse -- as does the fact the Times retains the Globe´s pension liabilities, estimated at over $100 million. (snip) What might have sweetened the lower offer for the Times is that Henry offered a straight cash deal, which is expected to close sometime in September or October.

Some of the earliest clues scientists had that Earth´s climate has changed over time were mismatches between the fossil record and a current ecosystem. How could this palm tree have grown in Wyoming? Why have fossils of the tropical breadfruit tree been found as far north as Greenland? These cold places must have once been warm and wet. The world is not as it has always been. And somehow, despite the tumult, species adapted, moving thousands of miles to habitats where they could survive. Won´t species today just do the same as temperatures rise in the years ahead?
