Obama warns disabled veterans
prolonged sequester could put their
benefits in jeopardy

Fox News, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Jakester2344, 8/11/2013 2:43:59 PM

President Obama took his case for ending the sequester to hundreds of disabled veterans Saturday, saying he protected their benefits from the “reckless” cuts to the federal budget but suggesting next year might be different. “It’s hurting our military. I made it clear that your veteran’s benefits are exempt from this year’s sequester,” the president said to the applause of hundreds at the Disabled American Veterans´ convention in Orlando, Fla. “But I want to tell you going forward the best way to protect the VA care you have earned is to get rid of this sequester altogether.”

More scaremongering from the one who PROPOSED the sequester in the first place.

Yet he never wants to let a crisis to go to waste.

The Elected, Entrenched Democrats are going to have to be punished and punished severely in the coming mid-terms, for the sins of their Idol, the lying Mulatto Marxist.

I live in a solidly Republican [and Conservative] area of the country, so we´re not having to push too hard here, but --big BUT, I would advise you folks who live in parts of the country with Dem seats up for grabs to get out and work night and day, work until you´re ready to drop, to see to it that the entrenched liars and thieves are unseated.

The Dems are going to have to be punished.

You B-tard. I am a disabled Viet Nam vet. I survive on social security and my VA disability. I sacrificed my mind and body for this country and now I get threats from a woosiefied community organizer that makes lavish vacations and large living a top priority over disabled veterans. Threats like this make you look like an a-whole. Veterans I know think and say the worst imaginable things about you that could never be printed here on Lucianne. You are not a loved and admired president. You are hated and despised and that is putting it mildly.

Well the sequester will harm the disabled vets, but there sure is enough money to pay for all the 0bama´s vacations. A Million Dollar weekend to golf with Tiger, A couple of a Million for their holiday Hawaiian trip, a few moreMillion for Michelle and the girls to go both to Atlantis and Sun Valley the same week, and again back to another Million Dollar ski weekend. Then we had the Hundred Million Dollar African adventure, and now a Multi-Million Dollar vacation to Martha´s Vineyard. But the disabled veterans, well, there just is no money for them.

I wonder how many VETS could have been treated by the VA with the monies that have been spent flying The Freaking Dog to various Vacation Spots. More "In your Face" to America from our first Affirmative- action, Comunist-indroctinated/office holder @1600 Penna. Ave.

A bill needs to be passed Monday. No more vacations, no more lavish parties, no more luxury spending at the taxpayers´ expense, until Obambi gets this fixed. Our Vets should and DO come first! No more golf, no more flying that fugly dog around the country, stay home and stew in the mess you created until you FIX IT! Republicans need to oass thus bill Monday, recall him from this absurd vacation in the vinyard, and put a stop to this carp NOW. How do they sit idly by and let this happen? Oh, and no more Muslim million dollar handouts. Freeze all otherworldly spending while you´re at it. Get away from Egypt and Syria, and stop making more vets you are going to abandon!

But fortunately, prolonged sequester will not put The First Dog´s first class air travel in jeopardy, nor Michelle´s next needless Vegas vacation in extravagant designer duds.

Even total idiots (D) are too smart to fall for Obama anymore. They know he´s just lying, but being idiots, they like it when he does and root for more.

I´ve always been told that entitlements are NEVER subjected to budget problems (default); that they ALWAYS have to be funded. Is Barry saying the disabled veterans benefits are NOT entitlements? Sounds like it to me.

Bangui (Central African Republic) (AFP) - A mob lynched a Muslim on Friday after he fell off a crowded lorry driving thousands of frightened civilians out of the strife-torn capital of the Central African Republic. A large convoy of lorries and taxis packed with Muslims fleeing Christian vigilantes headed north from Bangui under a slew of insults from angry residents, locals said. The mob set on the victim after he fell off one of the lorries and hacked to pieces his body, which still lay by the side of the road by late morning, an AFP photographer saw.

The 41 employees of Extreme Dodge in Jackson, Mich., are very familiar with trade-ins, but this year they’re learning about trade-offs as they come face to face with the new realities of health care. A few workers say they’re getting a great deal, but most have a severe case of sticker shock. “I feel like I’ve been taken to the cleaners,” said Neal Campbell, a salesman. The news was presented at the company’s annual benefits meeting earlier this month, when employees were told that the health insurance plan that the auto dealership had provided its workers was canceled because it doesn’t comply

Israeli soldiers and police rescued hundreds trapped in their cars by snow and ice. In the West Bank, the branches of olive trees groaned under the weight of snow. In

This morning on "This Week," New Jersey Republican Gov.

"First off, political advice from people who ran the Romney campaign is probably something nobody should really give a darn about, so let´s start with that," Christie told ABC´s George Stephanopoulos. "But secondly, all these issues have been vetted and if I ever run for anything again, they´ll be vetted again." Christie was responding to comments from Ted

Everyone knows why the GOP lost in 2012. Social issues distracted voters from the winning Republican economic message – at least that’s what most people believe. A new report released by American Principles in Action, a 501c4 organization based in Washington, D.C., states that this theory, while widely held, is incorrect. The problem with this belief is two-fold. First, the social issues, if played on offense, actually help Republicans win elections. And secondly, the GOP economic message failed to connect with middle class voters immediate economic concerns.

An Iraq War veteran´s towering SpongeBob SquarePants headstone has been removed from her final resting place because officials at the historic Cincinnati cemetery deemed it inappropriate for their traditional grounds. The headstone of Kimberly Walker, 28, was made in the likeness of her favorite cartoon character and erected at Spring Grove Cemetery on Oct. 10, almost eight months after she was found slain in a Colorado hotel room. Despite getting the cemetery´s prior approval of the headstone´s design — a smiling SpongeBob in an Army uniform, with Walker´s name and rank — her family said Monday that cemetery staff called them the

CAIRO — After torching a Franciscan school, Islamists paraded three nuns on the streets like "prisoners of war" before a Muslim woman offered them refuge. Two other women working at the school were sexually harassed and abused as they fought their way through a mob. In the four days since security forces cleared two sit-in camps by supporters of Egypt´s ousted president, Islamists have attacked dozens of Coptic churches along with homes and businesses owned by the Christian minority. The campaign of intimidation appears to be a warning to Christians outside Cairo to stand down from political activism. Christians have long

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery."

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

I began reading the entirety of the first section of the New York Times at nine years old, and continued that practice, more or less, for decades.(snip) ...the power of reverence, intrinsic to what I call the “cascade” of The Times: the near avalanche-like flow and distribution of information through electronic and print networks: through like-minded network newscasts, magazines, local newspaper s, blogs, daytime talk TV, late-night entertainment, statements at media award ceremonies, the celebrity Twitterverse, etc. The cascade rolls through Saturday Night Live, Jon Stewart, The New Yorker, the mouths of third-grade teachers, Elmo, Madonna and Susan Sarandon …through

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already
