Krauthammer: Delayed Hurricane
Sandy bill ´a rape of the Treasury´

Daily Caller, by Jeff Poor

Original Article

Posted By:sparky86, 1/5/2013 1:07:23 PM

On Friday’s broadcast of Fox News Channel’s “Special Report,” Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer argued that Speaker of the House John Boehner avoided a “rape of the Treasury” by postponing the vote on Hurricane Sandy relief legislation. New York Republican Rep. Peter King and New Jersey Republican Gov. Chris Christie joined Democrats in blasting Boehner for the delay, but Krauthammer said some of the criticism is hypocritical. “Sometimes the hypocrisy of the Democrats would leave Diogenes stunned,” Krauthammer said. “The Democrats spent two years savaging President [George W.] Bush over his treatment of Katrina. All of a sudden it’s a paragon of how to deal with disasters.”

Comments:
You have to wonder where $60 billion in disaster relief all could go. I know a lot of people were affected by this horrible storm, but such a high percentage of that gets wasted in the bureaucratic process of distribution.

“I think what Boehner did in postponing the vote until today was absolutely right,” Krauthammer declared.
“That was a rape of the Treasury — $60 billion,
including a ton of pork.
The part that was essentially passed today to replenish the flood insurance. That is right, and the rest ought to be debated in regular order.”

On another show Dr Krauthammer spoke of how much of the money in the 60 billion bill
would not even be allocated for years , in addition to the pork.
Christie behaved like a fool and a media tool , at least Peter King publicly
walked back his vitriol against Boehner.

When all is said and done, Boehner´s doing just fine.

Republicans have got to quit sniping at each other, at least publicly. The Dims don´t tear each other down -- you´d think they are all in awe of each other.

I believe that Gov. Christie is now persona non grata - just a loudmouth with no consistent thought patterns.

The problem #3, is that the Repubs just don´t know how to get the message out. As another poster observed the other day on this subject:

Once again the GOP doesn´t know how to inform the people what their doing, so the Dems and MSM get to tell the story.

Then when they (the GOP) get around to telling us what is going on, it all sounds like defensive posturing.

Reply #3 - President Ronald Reagan warned Republicans not to diminish or belittle each other and he referred to that warning as the Eleventh Commandment.

Peter King has raped the taxpayers for hundreds of millions of dollars in ´homeland security´ dollars for NY.

When is it going to be enough!

As for the loudmouthed bully, Christie.

He makes me ill.

This bill was an assault on our treasury. I want Christie and Schumer to explain how Sandy impacted commercial fisheries in American Samoa. Why we should spend $58 million planting trees on private property. I thought Christie was supposed to be a law and order guy, he´s acting more like a criminal conspirator. Can´t he be jailed under RICO.

Worse than the rape of the treasury (which doesn´t seem shocking anymore), is the insurance companies screwing these people over in the winter. They should have accended on the area in enmasse instead of waiting to find out what flood insurance will do for them.

What #2, #3 and #6 said. Once again, IMO, Charles Krauthammer is correct. King "walked back his rhetoric only AFTER the vote to give $9 billion to N.Y. Hopefully, that will end the giveaway of OUR money to every other state in the country because of a "hurricane sandy". BTW, I never saw ANY money going to Tennessee after the Grand Ol´ Opry was flooded and almost destroyed. Guess it just depends where your state is on the map when if comes to "help" from the "government" and the givers-of-pork.

On “The O’Reilly Factor” on Tuesday night, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer criticized President Barack Obama for his foreign policy but downplayed the effects of Obama’s interview with Zach Galifianakis in a Funny or Die video on Russian President Vladimir Putin of Obama. “I think it’s a kind of arrogance,” Krauthammer said. “He thinks he has a good foreign policy. I think he is semi-delusional about the results of these five years. There is not a spot in the world you -- can go from Syria to Libya to Iran to China, to Russia to Ukraine

A failure to properly supervise a Department of Veteran’s Affairs employee led him to use VA resources for sexting, misuse official time, and inappropriately spend thousands of dollars in travel funds, according to a recent report. In a redacted report — first highlighted by the Military Times — the Department of Veterans Affairs Office of Inspector General reveals a plethora of cringe-worthy offenses perpetrated by an unnamed VA employee. Despite the employee’s bad behavior, his supervisors allowed him to continue his unauthorized activities and even promoted him.

In 2011, the Department of Justice raided Gibson Guitar facilities in Memphis and Nashville, alleging a violation of the so-called Lacey Act, a law that bans the importation of certain kinds of wildlife, plants and wood. At the time of the raid, Gibson Guitars CEO Henry Juszkiewicz told Hugh Hewitt on his radio show that the feds confiscated tonewood imported from India for the guitar Gibson manufacturers which would result in a cost of $2 to $3 million for his company. At a great expense in legal fees and time, Juszkiewicz fought the federal government tooth and nail.

One of former President Bill Clinton’s favorite restaurants has eliminated its Friday buffet due to Obamacare. “We regret we had to make this decision but unfortunately we face new expenses as a result of the Healthcare reform and the Friday Buffet, though wonderful, was not profitable and required extra staff which we can no longer sustain,” a notice at the Georgetown Italian restaurant’s website reads. The Friday Lunch Buffet ended on Jan. 1.

After court documents revealed that the Department of Homeland Security has been ferrying illegal alien children detained at the border to their illegal alien parents living in the United States, Louisiana Republican Sen. David Vitter is looking for answers. “I am shocked to learn that the federal government is a participant in an international human smuggling conspiracy,” Vitter wrote in a letter to Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson Wednesday. “I cannot imagine a case in which such a policy would be in accordance with the established mission of the Department, particularly since this encourages additional smuggling and sometimes extreme abuse

Despite first lady Michelle Obama’s healthy living push, American eating habits deteriorated in the first 10 months of 2013, compared with 2012, according to a recent survey. According to a Gallup survey released over the Thanksgiving holiday, the percentage of adults reporting that they ate healthy all day “yesterday” has been consistently lower all 2013 compared to 2012.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

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

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

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
