White House compares GOP to terrorists
as government shutdown nears

Washington Times, by Dave Boyer

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 9/26/2013 11:13:35 PM

Senior White House adviser Dan Pfeiffer on Thursday compared Republican lawmakers to suicide bombers as the showdown over a possible government shutdown intensified. “We are for cutting spending, we are for reforming our tax code, we are for reforming entitlements,” Mr. Pfeiffer told CNN’s Jake Tapper. “But what we are not for is negotiating with people who have a bomb strapped to their chest.” Mr. Pfeiffer, 37, who was hospitalized twice this month for stroke-like symptoms, also compared the GOP to arsonists and kidnappers. He called Republicans’ bid to attach other priorities to a debt-ceiling bill “ransom demands.” “It’s not

Amen #1. After what the world has seen the last few days, I think the Democrats need to look elsewhere for their taunts. It´s beginning to make them look desperate.

I say shut down this corrupt enterprise.
Let´s see what part of this bloated behemoth is necessary and what is just a mirage.
Many individuals will suffer, I understand, but to separate the wheat from the chaff is essential to pare down the out of control, amoral,special interest, self interest, bureaucratic cluster puck that has become our self government. Defund the rotten mess and we´ll pick up the essentials after the implosion. Let DC choke on them selves!

If Republicans were actual terrorists, Barack Obama would be doing everything he could to help us.

But, we´re not butchering babies, we´re not blowing up little girls for learning to read, we´re not flying planes into buildings or beheading our critics, so Wise King Barky hates us all the more.

Go to hell, Barky, and take that ugly wookie you call your wife with you.

Why on earth would the writer of this article find it necessary to include this statement?

Pfeiffer, 37, hospitalized twice this month for stroke symptoms. To coin a phrase...what difference does that make? Are we now to feel pity for him or sorry for his woes at having to deal with the pitfalls of O-care? oops forgot, he´s with the government and has his own health insurance not the pig slop the serfs must use. That they force us to use leftover slop is terrorist in action.

Any terror that is being committed is by the ruling class on both sides of the aisle. They have an exemption from Obamacare but intend to foist it on the rest of us knowing we want no part of it. Was this country not founded on the principle that we are all equal under the law? We rejected the idea of an aristocracy living under one set of rules and the rest of us under another. That is tyranny and should enrage any American. It goes against everything the framers envisioned for this country. The ruling class is attempting to consolidate their power for generations to come with Obamacare.

This sick name calling of fellow Americans is beyond belief. It´s like 6th graders who think they are the most popular in school and anyone who disagrees with them are to be scorned. We have lost control of our country. I don´t know if we can get it back but I pray we can. For starters, term limits. Once someone is entrenched in a job as senator or congressman, they hold it forever. That was not the intent of the founding fathers - for the very reasons that we see going on right now in Washington.

Have you heard the news? The Office of the President is being replaced by The Office of the Dictator. Inasmuch as the you-know-what has finally hit the fan, I believe it would not be inappropriate to tell the Dictator, “Stick your Executive Orders and the fax machines they rode in on!”

And now, regaining my composure, here’s one thing more:

obamacare, as written, is on track for killing more Americans, particularly those on medicare, than any terrorist ever did. It will be a bureaucrat that kills the elderly, and the weak and sick. It could be Grandma or it could be the premie baby that might otherwise live but the expense of the care will not be covered. Meanwhile the prisoner who wants gender reassignment will get it. Who are the cruel and heartless terrorists ?

Very funny, yet true #7 re "he would help us". What was the saying? If you are taking flak, you must be over the target? Watching the different foaming at the mouth democrats run their spin/propaganda on Cspan Thursday was worth lots of laughs. Oh the scary stories. The propaganda they come up with is unbelievable. We are penetrating their fake shields and yes they are getting very worried. I say send the Feds home, lance the boil, show them we mean business. Their sad stories re the inconvenience to Federal workers is nothing compared to what ACA will do to this nation long term.

BTW: This saying the democrats came out with after the 2012 election, that "elections have consequences", as stated by both Donna Brazile and John McCain, etc is not how it should be perceived. So we get punished when we lose to people like Obama? No, elections are supposed to have RESULTS and so far there´s nothing to show. from Obama being reelected except an even more dysfunctional country, more disrespected, less safe(notice how there are new shootings/bombings every time Obama screws up and needs a subject change?), less prosperous, less employment, more expensive healthcare. Good things are supposed to come from elections not bad, not consequences.

Remember the immortal words of Janet Incompetano, who claimed that returning vets should also be considered possible terrorists. After all (her reasoning goes,) we´ve all been trained in the use of firearms, and that makes us dangerous --- even me, who was a returning vet shortly after Ft. Sumpter was fired upon.

So, according to the cerebrially-impaired children running things in the WH, I´m a double terrorist. I know how to shoot, and I´m a republican.

GOD! How can I stand the shame?

It is almost impossible to believe much of the statements coming out of this Administration. Has anyone checked to see if these fake transmissions are being forwarded from Obama´s fake Twitter, Facebook or Peoples Daily accounts.

That laughter you hear ringing from your ears is revengeful sneering from the rest of the Communist and Muslim world. There are dark days ahead if the productive portion of this country doesn´t wake up and take charge again.

They have purchased votes with entitlements, give-away programs, subsidies and grants using money they don´t have by running up the national debt. This goes way beyond shameful, it is CRIMINAL! One day, IT WILL GET PAID and when it does, it will destroy America.

The only political party that have actually been terrorists are the Democrats (the KKK, who terrorized both Black and White Republicans for decades throughout the South. They are also the only party that systematically practiced voter suppression, through Jim Crow laws... I refuse to be lectured about either subject by any damn Democrat. They are evil hypocrites, who constantly project their own evil fantasies on to others.... whitewashed tombs.

Long-term unemployed struggle
to find — and keep — jobs
Washington Post, by Ylan Q. Mui    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/18/2014 10:37:47 PM     Post Reply
For the long-term unemployed, finding a job is hard — but keeping one may be even harder. New research tracking people who have been out of work for six months or longer found that 23 percent of them landed a job within a few months of the study. But a year later, more than a third of that group was unemployed again or out of the labor force altogether. The findings are the latest in a bleak but growing body of literature suggesting long-term unemployment has become a trap that is difficult to escape. Economists say that means the long-term unemployed could become a permanent underclass, left behind by the nation’s broader

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

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

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

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

After accepting Kathleen Sebelius´ resignation Friday, Obama nominated Sylvia Burwell, the former Office of Management and Budget director.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

The Obama administration said Friday that it would block Iran’s nominee as ambassador to the United Nations from entering the United States, setting up a new confrontation with Tehran just as relations with the Islamic republic appeared to be improving. The decision to bar entry to the diplomat, who was allegedly involved in the 1979 seizure of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, followed intense political pressure on the administration from Republicans and Democrats on Capitol Hill. But it also marked a rare instance in which Washington has effectively vetoed another country’s preferred choice as envoy to the United Nations. Iran

Struggling homeowners across the country could face significant new tax bills if they receive mortgage relief from their banks, a prospect that threatens to slow the housing recovery and put further strain on distressed borrowers. The collapse of the housing market and plunging home prices left millions of people stuck owing more on their mortgages than their homes were worth. Some have worked with their banks to reduce the loan amount to avoid foreclosure or enable a sale. In 2007, Congress adopted a law that spared those homeowners from being taxed on the amount of the loan that was forgiven. But

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer.

He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on Friday stood by his statement regarding embattled Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, saying on KSNV’s What’s Your Point?, “If anyone thinks by any figment of their imagination that what happened up there last week was just people rallying to somebody that was oppressed, 600 people came in armed. They had practiced. They had maneuvered.” Reid continued, “They knew what they were doing. They set up snipers in strategic locations with sniper rifles. They had assault weapons. They had automatic weapons. And they boasted about the fact that they put women and children, in fact one

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations
