The Democrats are running around like Chicken Little of "the sky is falling" fame, forecasting the dire results of sequestration foisted upon us by the bad Republicans. Our military will dissolve instantly, ships will disappear from the sea, little kids will lose their babysitters at Head Start and all kinds of draconian things will befall the country. As usual it is just so much hogwash that is meant to play to the low information voters whom we have plenty of.(Snip) I am waiting for him to blame George W. Bush, who has been blamed for everything that the
Comments: It´s good to be King, especially with a lapdog media that is always waiting for a pat on the head from their Messiah. ´´Truth? We don´t need no stinking truth!´´
In the ongoing debate about ´malice or ignorance´ as the prime mover for our Beloved Leader, I would offer this: Obama can cause the pain and suffering he predicts after the sequester even if the sequester itself does not. Or he could mitigate the suffering through his own actions. We all know that the left is willing to create ´evidence´ to win most any argument.
An appropriate response to this nonsense would be a household analogy, "Faced with a smaller payraise than anticipated ,The Demo household has responded that they can no longer buy baby food or Grandmas medicine". Further inquiry has revealed that the booze and cigarette budget are untouched abd the trip to Vegas and Hawaii vacation are still on.
I am appalled by the ignorance of the big spenders. We have a president that just cannot stop spending; he does not care about the economy or circumstances; he wants what he wants. He prints 83 Billion Dollars each month, piles on 1 Trillion Dollars of Debt each year, and he refuses to compromise with the Republicans. Sequestration was his idea in the first place, as it just "kicked the can" down the road. Here we are two years later, he got his tax hike on the rich, it paid for three weeks of his spending, and now he is crying that we just cannot cut. Get over it. Stop spending and cut across the board; if we do not do this, we are doomed.
I do not understand what the problem is. Obama clearly stated that energy prices would ´necessarily skyrocket´. Higher energy prices mean higher prices for everything. This is exactly what the voters asked for.
Just wait until the federal minimum wage is raised.
The president DOES believe we are fools and the election proved he is correct. He can say and do anything and the press supports him and the public believes him.
You can whine about the insanity of it all but it will do no good. The majority of the public believes BO even if they don´t like the actual circumstances they find themselves in. Most people do not connect any of the problems of the country back to their source, BO and a failed progressive agenda.
Until Republicans learn how to get the public trust, the progressives will win.
As the saga of the Affordable Care Act continues, another mammoth program being pushed by the Department of Education for approval by all state legislatures is a national curriculum, which is called Common Core State Standards.(Snip)CCSS expedites the process of making government schools a vehicle for propagandizing students. The centralized government would be able to "teach" moral relativism, fairness, political correctness, multiculturalism, tolerance for the progressive agenda and bigotry for the traditional moral values. These Marxist/progressive concepts are changing the culture to welfare dependency.
Barack Obama is either the most inept president ever to sit in the White House or he is an enemy of the Republic. For the last 10 years, I have watched this man´s uncanny rise to the pinnacle of power and vacillated between those two choices. I have come to the conclusion that ideology trumps inexperience. His ego is so massive, and his leftist beliefs so strong, that he is willing to throw our country under the big international bus. Let´s review our Middle East policy since Obama took office. He made it his top priority to go to the
PASCO COUNTY -- Detectives in Pasco County have made an arrest in the home invasion shooting that happened on Friday.They say 18-year-old Ryan Mills was taken into custody after finishing treatment at Bayonet Hospital for gunshot wounds he suffered during that armed robbery. Detectives say Mills and another man busted into a Land O´ Lakes home brandishing a fake gun. Turns out, someone in that home had a real gun and opened fire on the two men, shooting them both. The sheriff´s office is still investigating the incident and tells us the other suspect will be arrested once he is released from the hospital.
Four and a half years in office the president is still in campaign mode delivering speeches to handpicked audiences including high school kids who haven´t a clue as to what the heck he is talking about.(Snip) Instead of a president trying to build confidence, we have not a great communicator but a great divider who is preaching class warfare and hatred that is like throwing a match into the proverbial gas tank. Instead of providing calm and reason and confidence Obama in his speech predicts violence...
We live in an age of surveillance. Right now, more information about us is available to more entities faster and easier than ever before. The FBI has been floating a plan to require all client-side communications software — be it voice, video, or text — to include mandatory backdoors that can be activated by law enforcement bodies to silently eavesdrop on any traffic coming in or out of that program. This will allow authorities to circumvent message-level encryption, which has stymied their current efforts.
MADISON, Wis.--Another year, another campaign. Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is gearing up for re-election next year, his third race in four years. But the Republican’s courting of out-of-state donors and conservatives, his plans to visit Iowa this week and his refusal to say whether he would serve out another full term if elected suggest he might be seeking a much bigger prize — the presidency. Not that he will openly acknowledge as much.
This is a tale that would bring a smile to the face of Josef Mengele, Adolf Hitler and Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger: the true story of a black abortionist making a fortune killing black babies — and occasionally a black mother — in the filthiest conditions imaginable.(Snip)Perhaps most disturbing in the report is this: “The search team discovered fetal remains haphazardly stored throughout the clinic — in bags, milk jugs, orange juice cartons, and even cat food containers.” Toilets were back up, clogged with body parts from murdered babies: Black babies, Asian babies, babies whose
TAMPA He claimed he was a war hero injured in Iraq and bilked the Veterans Administration for thousands of dollars in medical care. He even persuaded the organization Vacations for Veterans to give him a free trip to Hawaii.(Snip)Crane portrayed himself as "the most decorated veteran in Florida," U.S. Assistant Attorney Amanda Kaiser said. Crane had falsely said he was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross, two Purple Hearts, an Air Medal and other war-related awards. He told local veterans´ groups that "he was blind in one eye, had 24 metal plates in his face, took a bullet in his back
Pepsi´s video of NASCAR driver Jeff Gordon pulling a prank on an unsuspecting car salesman is going viral, racking up more than 1.4 million views since being uploaded Tuesday. Gordon, a champion NASCAR driver, disguised himself for the video and pretended he´d never driven a powerful car before, then gives the car salesman the test drive of a lifetime in a Camaro.
This past week has been a news filled bonanza of important events. Let me start with the demise of the Dictator of Venezuela, Hugo Chavez, who succumbed to cancer after his extensive treatment in Cuba.(Snip) It is possible that he may yet get the Nobel Peace award posthumously for his nationalizing businesses and bringing 24 percent, or there about, inflation to his country.It is amazing that a country blessed with humongous oil reserves should still have naked poverty and huge unemployment after 14 years of enlightened rulership. One thing he reportedly did do well was to amass a private
"Ok, the Republicans surprised us and hung tough on cutting some of the increase we´d hoped for in next year´s budget: what are we gonna do bout dat? Well Sir, we at INS have already taken action to show the public how painful those cuts will be. We´ve already released more than 2,000 illegal immigrants we´d held in our detention centers.(Snip)...cut the ammunition provided to front line troops. When those desert outposts run out of ammo, and are overrun by fanatical Arabs, the ignorant public will get the damn message. Look how excited they became over just that Benghazi thing.
Finally after several years of the intrigue associated with the biggest leak of government classified documents to the WikiLeaks website, the perpetrator, Pvt. Bradley Manning, has admitted guilt to lesser counts of the charges against him. (Snip)We have another high profile case involving a military man, Maj. Nadal Hasan, who shot and killed 13 people and wounded 30 others at Fort Hood, Texas. This happened on Nov. 5, 2009, a full 40 months ago. Our government, by the way, does not call it an act of terrorism, but rather defines it as workplace violence, even after there is proof
I have never been much of a conspiracy theorist. For me it was always Oswald by himself from the Texas School Book Depository and nothing in the intervening fifty years has disabused me of this notion. For the most part, I’m an Occam’s Razor kind of guy — the most obvious explanation is likely to be true. (Snip) To put it bluntly, Occam’s Razor has moved. Things that were once possibilities now seem almost certainties to me. Principal among those is that Obama’s academic records are perpetually unavailable for a reason — and that reason is most likely that they reveal
One of President Obama´s chief political assets has been his ability to excite young people like almost no politician in history. But the days of America´s youth fawning over the president are over. A new Harvard University Institute of Politics poll released Wednesday confirms what other surveys have shown in recent months: Millennials have soured on Obama so much this year that their opinion of him largely mirrors the American public´s. Even though Obama does not ever have to face another election, he should be worried about the findings for a couple of reasons, which we will dive into momentarily.
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa. Mandela´s family suggested that wouldn’t happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela´s former prison cell. Which Obama’s White House quickly tweeted upon word of the icon´s passing at 95. [Skip] But Obama was also caught staring at television coverage of Mandela’s passing, which became Obama’s Photo of the Day.
Hardly a week goes by without Hillary Clinton receiving another award. Last month she was named a “Global Champion” by the International Medical Corps, received the American Patriot Award at the National Defense University Foundation and the Hermandad Award from the Mexican American Leadership Initiative. [Snip] At this rate, if a bunch of elderly left-wing Swedes toss her the Nobel Peace Prize early on, the way they did to Obama, it will barely rate mention among all the other glittering trophies that have been bestowed on a woman whose only actual accomplishment was being married to a crooked governor with
A stunning new study unveiled on Fox News´ Hannity finds that President Barack Obama’s White House calendar records just one face-to-face meeting between Obama and his Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in the more than three-and-a-half years leading up to the disastrous Obamacare launch. The startling statistic comes from a new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) analysis of Obama’s own official White House calendar, as well as the Politico presidential calendar, and raises new questions about Obama’s executive leadership and management throughout the implementation of his singular legislative achievement. More alarming still, the president’s schedule lists 277 private
Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said. When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”
In February, the Bush family’s personal emails were hacked by Guccifer, a hacker who uncovered photographs of former President George H. W. Bush in a hospital bed and George W. Bush’s oil paintings in the process. It seems Guccifer has struck again, this time targeting former President Bill Clinton and the Clinton Library. The hacker has reportedly uncovered doodles of Clinton drawing on what were, at the time, classified documents. Among the doodles is apparently a picture of a penis. The document uncovered is a briefing of the strategic measures the United States could take prior Clinton’s decision to intervene in
Amid an array of “knock-out” attacks against a number of Jews in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights neighborhood, a city councilwoman pointed to the success of the Jewish community as triggering the aggression. Councilwoman-elect Laurie Cumbo emphasized that while she “admire[s] the Jewish community immensely” for its work ethic, black teens may see it differently. “While I personally regard this level of tenacity, I also recognize that for others, the accomplishments of the Jewish community triggers feelings of resentment, and a sense that Jewish success is not also their success,” Cumbo, who was recently elected, wrote in a letter. Chief among the issues
On Tuesday, The Boston Globe reported that Onyango “Omar” Obama, uncle to President Obama, says that his famous nephew stayed with him while a student at Harvard Law School in the 80s, in contradiction to The White House’s contention that the two had never met. At Thursday’s White House daily briefing, Press Secretary Jay Carney confirmed that the President had, in fact, briefly stayed with “his father’s half-brother,” as Carney described Omar Obama, and that no one had actually asked the President about it when the White House initially commented. The 69 year-old Omar Obama has been facing deportation back
The world premiere of the “Ballad for Trayvon Martin for Orchestra and Jazz Quartet” is set for tonight. Princeton University’s director of its jazz-studies program composed the work in honor of the Florida teen. Anthony D. J. Branker told the Star-Ledger that the piece is intended to “be a form of healing” after Martin’s death and the controversial court case that followed it. The ballad, which will be performed by the university’s official orchestra and jazz ensemble, is intended to be a tribute to victims of racial violence, Branker explained. He hopes that the performance will be “one that speaks to
WASHINGTON – A fourth straight month of solid hiring cut the U.S. unemployment rate to a five-year low of 7 percent in November, an encouraging sign for the economy. The Labor Department says employers added 203,000 jobs, nearly matching October´s revised gain of 200,000. The job gains helped lower the unemployment rate from 7.3 percent in October. The strengthening job market is likely to fuel speculation that the Federal Reserve may start to scale back its bond purchases when it meets later this month. The economy has now generated an average of 204,000 jobs from August through November. That´s up
WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama has high praise for potential 2016 contenders Vice President Joe Biden and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. “I think Joe Biden will go down in history as one of the best vice presidents ever, and he has been with me, at my side, in every tough decision that I’ve made,” Obama told MSNBC in an interview Thursday held at American University. “Hillary, I think, will go down in history as one of the finest secretaries of state we’ve ever had, and helped to transition us away from a deep hole that we were in,
