Is Obama Headed For A
Mayan Calendar Moment?

Investor´s Business Daily, by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 2/26/2013 8:04:33 PM

Sequestration: The president is trying to sow panic over a 2.4% trim in federal spending. But countless Americans have had to cut more from their budgets. Well may they wonder: Why can´t Washington? To hear President Obama tell it, the sky will fall this week and it all will be the Republicans´ fault. He´s on the road trying to scare up outrage over the $85 billion in automatic cuts to federal spending that kick in, barring action from Congress, this Friday. So where is the panic? Despite the administration´s best efforts to produce it, we see none.

Only in the U.S. History books that won´t be read in U.S. schools.

Save your breath.

Obama ain´t headin´ for nothin´ except expensive vacations and God-status among the brain-dead Hollywood left.

And there´s probably at least a few of them living next door.

It´s getting close to revolution time folks. Nobody´s listening to the truth.

The editors think Obama is headed towards jokesville. Whether he is or is not is beside the point. Obama will create ruin and folly regardless.

Fiscal cliff scare came and went with no effect. The tax increase for the wealthy that Obama got was spent in one day toward Sandy Relief with zero dollars going to pay the national debt as Obama promised. Now, he is trying to scare us again with doom and gloom if sequestration happens. Being a civilian working for the government, we are getting ready to be furloughed for a maximum of 22 days for the next six months as part of our share of the 85 billion dollars cut. I am preparing my family to tightened the belt a bit so we can weather the 20 percent pay cut. Call Obama´s bluff, I know I am.

Obama has proven his career choice is that of a community organizer. The Presidency has just given him a bigger platform. He goes out and agitates to his peeps because he doesn´t want compromise. He wants victory and means to get it in any way possible. We have never had a President so openly hostile to the opposing party and its supporters. His only goal is to win and winning means to him the weakening of this country to the point we will be vulnerable fiscally and militarily. He is on a mission and he will not fail.

Obama´s "game plan" here has been previously explained to us, in two short sentences, by his former White House Chief of Staff and the best known graduate of Madame Hubata´s Evanston School of Ballet, Rahm Emanuel..."You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it´s an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before."

Obama is the ultimate example of affirmative action. Pushed along without any actual positive performance, a mediocre resume, at best. The whole democrat organization is responsible for this disaster of a president.

The Marxists always threaten the most critical of government services will be eliminated (policemen, teachersn etc) while the least critical and bloated services will go untouched (subsidizing art, funding Brazilian alt energy, etc).

Watch how they say this when they preach to us in the next days.

#9, they also threaten the services that impact the public most directly, like closing National Parks. But you´re right - never a cut in the bloated interior of government where it would never be missed by the public and might even improve things. Like how about cutting diversity training seminars and team-building junkets altogether? How many ridiculous "studies" do we fund? We could save a boatload by keeping presidential and FLOTUS vacays to twice a year. Just about anyone could find 87B they would love to pull the plug on.

The public is being totally mislead on these sequestration cuts. There is so much waste in the federal government; why isn´t DHS cutting back on their fusion centers or all the intel analysts - didn´t Obama say he got Obama so the war on terror is over?

6, I think you mean community agitator.

Agitating has been his function ever since (and before) he assumed office. Divide and conquer -- the time-tested recipe used by tyrants. All we need do is read the history of Nazi Germany. And now we have added into the mix a Hispanic population with a literacy rate of 20%. And they vote! And 48% of the population getting government assistance. And he wants to let down the border barriers...why not if it means more ignorant voters for the successors who will carry out the rest of his plan.

The people who are first going to get screwed across the board by all this are federal workers who are being told that they must essentially take a 20% pay cut over the next six months.

No doubt the federal work force is probably about 50% too big, but it has to be like that for the government to get any work done at all, because about 50% of that work force is made up of people who do little or no meaningful work, with the other 50% doing just about all the meaningful work and pulling all the slack.

It has to be like that, because in political Washington, DC the 50% or so of the federal workforce that is useless is generally made up of political favorites, either individually, or in politically favored groups and they are not going anyplace.

With human nature being what it is, once the entire federal workforce has their pay reduced, the Obama crew will be lucky if they get any bureaucratic work done at all in the near future.

Obama has some discretion over what gets cut. The Republicans need to hammer this home. Why? Because just like all political dramatists, Obama is going to make cuts to things that hurt the most -- see the release of thousands of illegal immigrants.

It´s also known as extortion.

The GOP can use the fact that he´s making the decisions as to "who", "what", and "where", but they won´t. They simply don´t have the courage to find a soap box and use it.

Like Global Warming, every financial hiccup will now be blamed by the media on sequester.

The fight is on for the message.

1. Sequester was Obama´s idea.
2. Obama picks and chooses what to cut.
3. Obama´s salary will not be affected.

Pound that incessantly to his dummy followers.

There´s nothing to see here on the sequester. Both parties had their heads up their behinds agreeing to it in the first place. This whole affair is just a walk in the park love pat on budget cutting compared to the real aftershock that IS coming and will come during Obie´s dictatorship, ahem...administration. That will be the complete opposite of the Mayan Calendar moment for the Obiemeister.

Chris Christie: Republicans don´t get anywhere

Posted By: Desert Fox- 4/1/2014 8:44:33 PM     Post Reply
Gov. Chris Christie, R-N.J., turned down the opportunity to bash the mainstream media on Friday, when interviewed by Fox News host Megyn Kelly. Kelly pointed out, during a part of the interview aired on Friday, that there was an unprecedented volume of negative media coverage surrounding the bridge controversy in New Jersey. "Has this changed your view of the mainstream media?" she asked. "No, I´ve always had the same view," Christie said, pointing out that anyone can be the "flavor of the month" in the media. "But I´ve always said to my folks in the party, we don´t get anywhere complaining about it either,"

Republican pundit Charles Krauthammer said that when Republican New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie embraced President Barack Obama after Hurricane Sandy a week before the 2012 presidential election, he was essentially giving Obama a lap dance. “I think many Republicans are extremely upset with what was described in the press as giving Obama a bear hug,” Krauthammer said on Sunday in a debate with Obama strategist David Plouffe, according to Politico. “I saw it slightly differently, I thought it was more of like a lap dance. Not a phrase I would use on television, since the image is too disturbing.” Krauthammer did use

In a way it´s the oddest bit of ObamaCare propaganda we´ve seen so far. "This Is What an #ACASurge Looks Like" was the title of a Saturday post on the White House Blog by senior communications adviser Tara McGuinness. "The line started forming at 5 a.m. in front of an enrollment center in Miami," McGuinness boasts. "The final deadline to get covered in 2014 is in just two days, and Americans are literally lining up at grassroots events across the country to make sure they´re covered. This is what momentum looks like." To McGuinness´s credit, she does mean "literally" literally. The post

Suddenly ObamaCare is a roaring success, happy days are here again and liberals are euphoric, or claim to be. There are more than a few reasons to doubt this new fairy tale, not least the behavior of Senate Democrats running for re-election this year. In the Rose Garden Tuesday, President Obama reported that 7.1 million people had signed up so far, confirming a Monday night White House news leak. "That doesn´t mean all our health-care problems have been solved forever," he conceded with customary modesty. The government appears to have tapped heretofore-unknown reserves of bureaucratic efficiency by releasing numbers timed to

Health Care: The administration is crowing that 7 million people filled out applications for ObamaCare plans — the original enrollment target that once seemed impossible to hit. Don´t pop the champagne bottles just yet. Given the news about surging enrollment and rising poll numbers, maybe Nancy Pelosi was right that Democrats will all benefit in the fall from ObamaCare. Except that once you strip out the hyperbole, little remains to celebrate. • Seven million enrollees? That figure fails to discount those who haven´t paid their premiums. Among the eight states releasing this number, about one in five "enrollees," on average, haven´t paid.

A few weeks ago, the liberal comedian Bill Maher and conservative strategist and pundit Bill Kristol had a brief spat on Maher’s HBO show, putatively over what instigated the tea party but ultimately over the psychic wound that has divided red America and blue America in the Obama years. The rise of the tea party, explained Maher in a let’s-get-real moment, closing his eyes for a second the way one does when saying something everybody knows but nobody wants to say, “was about a black president.” Both Maher and Kristol carry themselves with a weary cynicism that allows them to

A caveat right off the bat: RAND’s estimate only runs through March 28 whereas the actual deadline for signing up was March 31st. Given the crush of traffic on Healthcare.gov in late March, many more people could have signed up over those last three days than were captured by these numbers. On the other hand, the White House was claiming six million sign-ups as of March 27. There’s no way to reconcile that with RAND’s data. One of them is wrong. Maybe both, in fact.

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

Lerner and potential legal action, analysts say she and her attorney have mishandled their case by picking and choosing when they want to talk, and to whom they are willing to talk. Ms. Lerner faces a vote in the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on Thursday that could begin the process of accusing her of contempt of Congress. The Ways and Means Committee announced that it will hold a vote Wednesday on whether to officially accuse Ms. Lerner of breaking the law by

A founding father of the conservative movement who is now a star among Tea Party activists is urging the GOP to choose a governor to duel Washington “insider” Hillary Clinton for the White House, saying that 2016 isn´t the best time for Sen. Ted Cruz to run. Often called the “funding father” of conservatism for pioneering direct mail fundraising, Richard A. Viguerie believes that the Texas senator is a “game changer” for the movement but that the best way to beat Clinton is with a candidate from outside the beltway. “I don´t think it would be best for the conservative movement for

As a former President of The Most Powerful Country In The World, George W Bush has significantly greater access to world leaders than most budding artists. (Snip) Art critics have pointed out that a number of the 30 portraits in the exhibition appear to be based on images thrown up by a cursory search of the person´s name in Google Images. In some cases the portrait seems to have been based on the very first image result on the search engine. Rather remarkably, even the portrait of his own father, someone who he surely could have asked to sit for him, appears to be based on an Associated Press portrait which appears on the first page of

My first published column was in a local paper opposing the Equal Rights Amendment for the same reasons that Phyllis Schlafly, a conservative lawyer, campaigned on. As ambiguously written, the ERA, would eliminate the men-only draft requirement, repeal protective laws like sexual assault and eliminate the tendency for mothers to obtain custody over their children in divorce cases. Ironically, one of the arguments that helped sink the amendment from ratification was the fear that single-sex bathrooms would no longer be permitted. In addition, opponents of the amendment also warned that it would lead to abortion on demand and same-sex marriages.

This morning I clicked on a link to a Red State website article concerning “The War on Women” and “Paycheck Equality” and got quite a surprise (the same thing happens when a Firefox user goes directly to the article). Nanny Firefox posted a political opinion on my screen before allowing me to proceed to read the article. This message didn’t appear when I accessed a second article which met with Firefox’s political commissar’s approval. Here’s what Firefox said: Careful Now! (shouldn’t they have said “Achtung! or “Verboten!” or something similar?). This website could not be displayed by Firefox because it is not

More than a hundred Republican Party elders gathered this weekend in Texas to celebrate George H.W. Bush’s legacy. But many of the event’s participants had another, much simpler agenda: launching a Jeb Bush presidential campaign. The two-day festivities featured a widely covered speech by Jeb. And on the sidelines, former Bush retainers were frank about their hopes that the eldest son could save a party the family has led on and off since 1988. “We have a responsibility to make sure Jeb runs,” said longtime Bush adviser Andy Card after the speech. “If Jeb Bush does not run, shame on us.” Card added,

The incident happened at Cuisine of China on Geyer Springs road.
