Obama: ‘I Cut Spending by
Over a Trillion Dollars in 2011’

Cybercast News Service, by Terence P. Jeffrey

Original Article

Posted By:M2, 12/31/2012 8:37:53 AM

Appearing on NBCs “Meet the Press” on Sunday, President Barack Obama said that he cut spending by more than $1 trillion in 2011. However, the White House Office of Management and Budget says that federal spending increased by $147 billion from fiscal 2010 to fiscal 2011.(snip) In fiscal 2011, according to the White House Office of Management and Budget, the federal deficit was $1,299,595,000,000. That was up from a deficit of $1,293,489,000,000 in fiscal 2010.

So another oft-repeated lie becomes part of the American fabric, while the MSM stays complicit in its cushy role as enabler of the fiscal cliff fiasco.

I always thought that Clinton was the biggest liar to ever occupy the White House. Compared to Obama, Clinton is an honest man. And what is so frightning is that the press works overtime to enable the lies.

And most of the media will gleefully advance this crap as "truth"....

Like all the money we HAD to spend via the so-called "peace dividend" during Bubba´s regime.

Or the notion that if we keep spending at current levels, that we actually made a cut in the growth of government by not taking the full raise due through "base line budgeting".

It is so sad that only a few tens of thousand people in four states caused this.

If the Federal Government spent $3.6 trillion in 2011 and Zippy saved a trillion, then the original plan must have been to spend $4.6 trillion. Did Gregory push him into a corner over these numbers. Betting is that the $4.6 trillion was probably the Kenyan´s DoA budget. As that didn´t get approved and spent he is claiming credit for it. This is totally bizarre.

That imaginary deal that was spread over 10 years and would amount to a tiny $100 billion each year which is about a rounding error for the massive deficit spending under the Obamination administration?

And yet the deficit increased by over $1 trillion each of the last 4 years.

Justice Anthony Kennedy did the cause of gay marriage no favors when he ruled that the purpose of laws that uphold traditional marriage was to "disparage and injure" same-sex couples. By casting support for traditional marriage falsely as bigotry, he undermined the legitimacy of the holding in the case. Worse, he implictly excused the real--not imagined--bigotry of some gay marriage supporters against their opponents.

In warning about possible al Qaeda attacks against Americans overseas, U.S. officials may have provided too much detail about intercepted chatter and the source of the information, and that may make it more difficult to get such tips next time, former and current intelligence officials say.On Friday, the U.S. State Department issued a worldwide travel alert for Americans, citing an unspecified al Qaeda threat. The bulletin said that the highest threat levels are the Middle East and North Africa, “and possibly occurring in or emanating from the Arab Peninsula.”

For nearly a year, we have had no answer to why the administration lied about Benghazi — why it told the world, not to mention the parents of our murdered SEALs at the funeral of their sons, that the cause of that fatal conflagration was an anti-Islamic video no one saw, when the various arms of our executive branch (White House, State and intelligence) already knew, or strongly suspected, it was a terror attack orchestrated by al-Qaeda affiliates. You only have to read the now infamous talking points to know that. That this lie was deeply immoral is obvious.

There’s a Tsarnaev out there, somewhere – could be the Mahgreb, the Levant, the Horn of Africa, the Indian sub-continent – who knows? So, as Richard Fernandez writes, “Shelter in place, this time globally.” Maybe it will work. Maybe by the end of the day there will be, unlike Benghazi a year on, men in custody. But if not?

Common sense tells me that cops don´t need a Taser or a shotgun to subdue a 95-year-old man. When John Wrana was a young man, fit and strong and fighting in World War II with the U.S. Army Air Corps, did he ever think he´d end this way?

I have a suggestion. How about an exhibit on Tawana Brawley? If the purpose of the new National Museum of African American History and Culture at the Smithsonian is to remember racial controversies, as the proposed Trayvon exhibit seems to confirm, then how about an honest look at the phenomenon of hate crime hoaxes? Particular attention should be paid to the role of the media in both the Trayvon and Tawana materials. Unquestionably, the media stirred up racial animus, and these incidents both contributed to raising racial tensions.
