Cliff-jumping with Barack
Washington Post, by Charles Krauthammer

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 11/29/2012 11:26:43 PM

Why are Republicans playing the Democrats’ game that the “fiscal cliff” is all about taxation? House Speaker John Boehner already made the preemptive concession of agreeing to raise revenue. But the insistence on doing so by eliminating deductions without raising marginal rates is now the subject of fierce Republican infighting. Where is the other part of President Obama’s vaunted “balanced approach”? Where are the spending cuts, both discretionary and entitlement: Medicare, Medicaid and now Obamacare (the health-care trio) and Social Security? Social Security is the easiest to solve. So you get a sense of the Democrats’ inclination to reform entitlements

There is no fiscal cliff. Obama will grandstand it until he gets his tax increase, and then when nothing happens he will point to the tax increase and say "See!" Republicans in the Houkse should hold the line on taxes. Pass a bill making the current rates permanent and go home.

Agreed! And the pubbies should ask over and over on all the shows: "Why is Obama willing to go over the fiscal cliff over $85 billion?" (taxing the rich rasies a whopping $85 billion)

Yes, give Obama the full Clinton.

George W. Bush was a great president yet Hussein is still campaigning against him. Tax increases for all. 50% don´t pay any income taxes!

Democrats are looking forward to pushing the USA over the cliff and watching it fall. The crash is what will give them the justification to impose Socialism, with the eager cooperation of the MSM defining the problem, in classic Marxism, as a "tyranny of the rich". "See, we told you so - free enterprise doesn´t work, the American system has never worked!" will be the rallying cry behind President Jim Hussein Jones. As of this writing, far too many in the GOP seem willing to "compromise" with this treasonous plan, as if a one millimeter parachute would lessen the crash. I say, let the world see who the Democrats really are, and the destruction they really intend.

Speaker Gingrich was on Greta tonite and he laid out an incredibly concise and common sense plan on what the house GOP can do. He also carefully explained why this "fiscal cliff" is a fantasy concocted by Obama to keep the Republicans running around in fear and disarray.
Boehner is a coward and falling over himself trying to get the media to "like" him on facebook.

Greta gave Newt almost 20 minutes of talking time and he didn´t waste one second. Remarkable man with a fearless disposition. It was a relief to listen to him. I hope the House listens also.

I too saw the nice long segment Greta gave Newt. I think she too really wanted to talk to one Republican who really knows the score and can clearly articulate precisely what is going on. He did a masterful job.

#7 Newt interview is here


Gingrich is a moment of sanity. Obvious why the Dems wanted him out of Washington in the late ´90s never to return.

Mitch McConnell has already stated that nobody can negotiate with obama -he just can´t stop lying long enough to be the part of any deal.

You cannot deal with Democrats. I can´t understand why Boehner is talking to Geithner, he´s a stooge. Why are they talking at all? Tell Obama to present a plan that will pass the House, then walk away. Let Obama figure it out.

Remember when Bush asked for more money,how Pelosi went around crying about a blank check all the time? Obama has taken the blank check even further wanting $50 billion more in stimulus type money and an end to debt ceiling haggles. Geither just said last week the debt limit should be infinity. Does that sound like anyone with a sense of responsibility?

We all knew the second Obama got re-elected(with foreign votes) that the next 4 years would be unsurvivable hell.

Birth rates are at a near all time low except immigrant women,most of whom have to be latino.We live in a "hook up" world and these people are "hooking up" with the welfare colony and a permanent voting base for the dems.

I wish there were even one elected Republican with any testosterone, any backbone, any gonads!

Whenever any DhimmicRAT mentions "tax increase", some Republican should whip out the video of the 0bama/Clinton primary debate in 2008, where the moderator asked about raising taxes, and 0bama acknowledged that every time tax rates increase, tax revenues decline and the opposite, but he wants higher rates for "fairness" to the poor.

Then, after listening to 0bama´s voice admit he wants to lower revenues, that same Republican should ask "How will lowering revenues help solve this fiscal crisis?? Give us some serious spending cuts, then we will discuss possible tax revenue increases."

Social Security stops trying

Washington Post, by Marc Fisher    Original Article

The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

Despite promises to the contrary, it appears that State Senator Wendy Davis (D-Fort Worth) voted on bills that affect her clients and favorably impact the bottom line of her law firm. “I have never done anything in a way that represents a conflict in my voting and something that would benefit me personally,” she said in an interview, but state records seem to tell a different story. The Dallas Morning News´ Senior Political Writer Wayne Slater (DMN) reported that Davis supported legislation governing a toll road project. That would be all well and good except for the fact that the

Democrats Lose Two More Special
Elections They Didn’t Expect To

Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on




Nevada ranch standoff could leave
dirt on Harry Reid’s reputation

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

Democrats settle on fairness

On the defensive about their prospects in the midterm elections this fall, congressional Democrats have spent all of April savaging the Republican budget proposal, decrying the Koch brothers and championing a series of bills meant to ingratiate themselves to struggling middle-class voters. In promoting legislation that would extend unemployment benefits, increase the minimum wage and promote equal pay for women, the Democrats have declared themselves the party that will ensure a “fair shot” for all. Republicans, they insist, are the party of special interests. It has been a classic Washington messaging campaign for these partisan

On a trip to Moscow early in her tenure as secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton played the role of international saleswoman, pressing Russian government officials to sign a multibillion-dollar deal to buy dozens of aircraft from Boeing. A month later, Clinton was in China, where she jubilantly announced that the aerospace giant would be writing a generous check to help resuscitate floundering U.S. efforts to host a pavilion at the upcoming World’s Fair. Boeing, she said, “has just agreed to double its contribution to $2 million.” Clinton did not point out that, to secure the donation, the State Department

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes.

Democratic Massachusetts Sen.

Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

Thirty-seven percent think Obama lies “most of the time,” while another 24 percent say he lies “some of the time.” Twenty percent of voters say “only now and then” and 15 percent “never.” Click here for the poll results.
