Do you know what the absolutely most hilarious thing about the sequestration issue is? It’s that Democrats and media elites are saying, “The Republicans voted for these sequestration cuts…” And, yes, they did vote for the bill that came from the Obama White House that had the sequestration cuts in it; as did Democrats. But here’s the funny thing about it: if Republicans DON’T vote Obama’s way, they are “obstructionists.” If they DO vote Obama’s way, well, they become completely to blame for the disaster that came from the mind of Obama, as far as the mainstream media and the Democrat Party are concerned.
The sequestration battle reveals two ways that the war is over, and America lost.
And it’s like that famous Pogo line: “We have met the enemy… and he is us.”
Two things going on right now blatantly show America is doomed. There is simply no coming back from these things.
The first is the level of propaganda and lies coming from our mainstream media and from our White House. There simply has never been a president who has ever been so in-your-face dishonest; and there simply has never been a media refusal to cover the truth like this before.
Barack Obama has now repeatedly said that sequestration – which he now says is a “meat cleaver” that would have “brutal consequences” that would destroy America - was “Congress’ idea” (with the implication that it was therefore the Republicans’ idea. He said back on October 22:
“The sequester is not something that I’ve proposed,” Obama said. “It is something that Congress has proposed.”
But Barack Obama is a documented liar in claiming that. Because WHO actually proposed sequestration again?
Let’s see what White House Press Secretary Jay Carney was forced to concede during an interview with Fox News anchor Brett Bair (note: I added the first remark by Jay Carney to the transcript after transcribing it from the video):
Jay Carney: Somehow, what they [Republicans] liked then, they don’t like now and they’re trying to say that it was the president’s idea.
Bret Baier: Fair to say, but it was the president’s idea… You concede that point, right?
Jay Carney: What I will concede is that we were looking and the Republicans were looking for a trigger around which to build the mechanism to get us out of default possibility and the sequester was one of the ideas yes put forward, yes, by the president’s team.
Who’s to blame for sequestration?
“At 2:30 p.m. Lew and Nabors went to the Senate to meet with Reid and his chief of staff, David Krone. ‘We have an idea for the trigger,’ Lew said. ‘What’s the idea?’ Reid asked skeptically. ‘Sequestration.’ Reid bent down and put his head between his knees, almost as if he were going to throw up or was having a heart attack. He sat back up and looked at the ceiling. ‘A couple of weeks ago,’ he said, ‘my staff said to me that there is one more possible’ enforcement mechanism: sequestration. He said he told them, ‘Get the hell out of here. That’s insane. The White House surely will come up with a plan that will save the day. And you come to me with sequestration?’ Well, it could work, Lew and Nabors explained. What would the impact be? They would design it so that half the threatened cuts would be from the Defense Department. ‘I like that,’ Reid said. ‘That’s good. It doesn’t touch Medicaid or Medicare, does it?’ It actually does touch Medicare, they replied. ‘How does it touch Medicare?’ It depends, they said. There’s versions with 2 percent cuts, and there’s versions with 4 percent cuts.” (Bob Woodward, The Price Of Politics, 2012, pp. 326)
It is a documented historical fact that it was BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA’S White House that proposed sequestration, NOT Congress and most certainly NOT Republicans.
So, yeah, it was the president’s idea. It was Obama’s plan that Obama put forward. If the Republicans agreed to it in order to get something done on the last debt ceiling fight. And after all the time you’ve spent labelling Republicans as “obstructionists” for not agreeing with you, NOW you demonize them as evil after they DO agree with you???
Barack Obama is a documented, proven liar. Even the überliberal Washington Post acknowledges that Barack Obama is a liar. But the rest of the media is largely disinterested, uningaged, uninvolved in this story – aside from presenting Obama’s deceitful spin on reality as “the news.”
“I will veto any effort to get rid of those automatic spending cuts,” said Obama from the White House’s briefing room, adding “the only way to get rid of those cuts is to get Congress to come together and work on a deal.”
We literally have him saying it on video:
“Already some in Congress are trying to undo these automatic spending cuts. My message to them is simple: No,” Mr. Obama said from the White House briefing room Monday evening. “I will veto any effort to get rid of those automatic spending cuts to domestic and defense spending.”
Barack Obama is a documented liar and slanderer and demagogue and fearmongering demonizer for all the world to see.
“Would they rather put hundreds of thousands of jobs and our entire economy at risk just to protect a few special interest tax loopholes that benefit only the wealthiest Americans and biggest corporations?” Obama asked of the GOP during a White House event.
What he is actually saying is that it was actually HIS idea to “put hundreds of thousands of jobs and our entire economy at risk just to protect a few special interest tax loopholes that benefit only the wealthiest Americans and biggest corporations.” You DO know that GE – which paid zero taxes last year – is a liberal and pro-Obama corporation, don’t you? You DO know that Facebook – another liberal pro-Obama corporation - is not only not paying federal income taxes but is actually getting a huge tax refund of nearly half a billion dollars in tax money???
At one of his countless anti-sequester events, Obama warned that the budget cuts will “gut critical investments,” “weaken America’s economic recovery” and “weaken our military readiness.” He said tens of thousands of parents will scramble to find child care, and hundreds of thousands will “lose access to primary care and preventive care.”
Whenever you hear Obama explain how the sequestration cuts are absolutely evil and would basically kill everybody in his current slandering fearmongering, realize that Obama is the source of that evil and is responsible for all the evil things he says will happen.
And do you REALLY want to talk about the cronyism of the Obama administration???? Obama is literally SELLING access to his White House to the highest bidder. Obama’s mindset is to be the most shameless peddler of chutzpah the world has ever known, to demonize and slander his opponents while actually doing far WORSE than the opponents whom he is routinely demonizing. While the media dishonestly “reports” whatever the hell their Führer wants them to. And I say “Führer” because you’ve got to go back to Joseph Goebbels’ Ministry of Propaganda to see this kind of shameless media dishonesty.
What Barack Hussein Obama is actually saying is that to whatever extent the sequestration cuts are evil, HE is evil. To whatever extent that sequestration will hurt the economy, HE is the one who hurt the economy. And to whatever extent sequestration cuts will hurt the American people, HE is the one who hurt the American people. Obama is literally on the record having said that he would not allow ANYTHING to undo the spending cuts that he today dishonestly says is demonically evil.
But the world doesn’t CARE that Barack Obama is a slandering liar and a pathologically dishonest and dishonorable human being. And that’s largely because the mainstream media are a bunch of pathologically dishonest and dishonorable human beings who now rely almost exclusively on propaganda rather than “news” or “journalism.”
It’s an inconvenient truth that the sequestration cuts that Barack Obama is now fearmongering and demonizing came from Obama. It is an inconvenient truth that Barack Hussein Obama actually threatened to VETO ANY EFFORT TO UNDO THE SEQUESTRATION CUTS THAT HE NOW SAYS ARE SO DAMN EVIL and will be so damned harmful to the American people. So the media doesn’t report the inconvenient truth. And instead reports Obama’s slandering lies and fearmongering in PLACE of the truth.
When a nation is as blinded by lies and as willing to participate in lies and deceit as the American people now are, it is time for that nation and that people to go the way of the Dodo bird to extinction. But it’s more than just extinction, because we face divine judgment: any nation that is so deluded by lies that it would vote for a liar without shame, without honor and without decency in 2008 and then vote to re-elect that shameless liar four years later deserves the Antichrist, deserves to worship him, deserves to take his mark and deserves to burn in hell for all eternity.
And that is coming because of what we have done. That end is coming because when we needed to be confronted by the truth, the American people were the sort of people who preferred lies and slander and demagoguery and fearmongering.
The truth no longer matters in America. And God DAMN America for that, to quote Obama’s racist reverend Jeremiah Wright.
What I point out above isn’t the only Obama lies regarding sequestration. Like I said, this man is a liar without shame or honor or decency. And literally everything that drools out of his mouth is a lie. Bob Woodward also documented that Barack Obama, in demanding tax hikes (“revenue”), is not only dishonestly moving the goal post but in fact shamelessly reneging on a deal he made:
In fact, the final deal reached between Vice President Biden and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) in 2011 included an agreement that there would be no tax increases in the sequester in exchange for what the president was insisting on: an agreement that the nation’s debt ceiling would be increased for 18 months, so Obama would not have to go through another such negotiation in 2012, when he was running for reelection.
So when the president asks that a substitute for the sequester include not just spending cuts but also new revenue, he is moving the goal posts. His call for a balanced approach is reasonable, and he makes a strong case that those in the top income brackets could and should pay more. But that was not the deal he made.
Again, that is the reporting of Bob Woodward, one of the most famous journalist’ alive whose reporting brought down Nixon, stated from his access to the White House during the very time the sequestration deal was going through.
But again, the mainstream media and the wicked American people will not allow Barack Obama to be held responsible for his shameless lies or his constant deceit. So the fact that Obama’s constant demand for “common-sense” “balanced approach,” he is in fact saying he should be rewarded for making promises, agreeing to deals, and then dishonestly reneging on those promises and deals.
Anyone who negotiates with such a dishonest man as Obama is is a fool who deserves his own destruction. Which is why the Republican Party is in such terrible shape as they’ve tried to compromise again and again with a shameless, craven, dishonest liar.
They have gone down this path again and again and again. Obama makes a deal only to break his own deal. And then demonize and slander the Republicans whose sin was trying to deal with a devil:
The book, “The Price of Politics,” on sale Sept. 11, 2012, shows how close the president and the House speaker were to defying Washington odds and establishing a spending framework that included both new revenues and major changes to long-sacred entitlement programs.
But at a critical juncture, with an agreement tantalizingly close, Obama pressed Boehner for additional taxes as part of a final deal — a miscalculation, in retrospect, given how far the House speaker felt he’d already gone.
Who killed that infamous Grand Bargain deal in which Boehner had agreed to concede higher taxes in exhange for spending cuts? Obama killed it by having a deal and then demanding even more concessions after he had already agreed on a deal. And dishonest Democrats, which pretty much is all of them, have perverted the truth ever since by falsely claiming Boehner walked away from a deal. All Boehner walked away from was the destroyed engine of a deal after Obama dishonestly threw a monkey wrench into it after they’d already agreed to a deal.
When Barack Hussein Obama pissed on the deal and killed it, he and his vast army of lying cockroaches were ready to point the finger at the victim of Obama’s dishonest dealing.
Democrats are every bit as happy to go off the fiscal cliff of sequestration as the most right wing Republican. And Obama has been doing a whole lot of moving the goalposts while he dishonestly goes back on agreements he made. But the dishonest media refuses to report the truth. Because the truth is the first thing to go before God truly begins to judge a nation for its wickedness.
That’s one. The dishonesty of the American people in their leader, in their dishonest, false messiah are alone enough to constitute God Damn America until this nation fades away from its status as a world power in humiliation and shame.
But the sequestration debate reveals a far more dangerous cancer at the dishonest, wicked heart of Barack Hussein Obama and the American people he leads to their damnation.
The other fact is the fact that there will NEVER be anything remotely CLOSE to true spending cuts as long as there is one Democrat who has not been hunted down with dogs and burned alive.
Do you know what the sequestration fight is really over? Of course you don’t, if you get your “news” from the mainstream media! It is over a 2.4% reduction in the rate of projected spending:
How much is to be “cut”? $85 billion on a budget of $3.6 trillion. That’s 2.4%. As of August household income was down 8.2% under Obama and the country had to make do. Now Obama tries to tell us that government can’t do with 2.4% less? Seriously?
He has been lying about the sequester since the debates.
Federal spending will explode from $3.6 trillion to $6 trillion over the next 10 years, but the much-maligned sequester will cut only 2.4 percent of this spending.
Sequestration represents a relatively small cut in projected spending. So why are so many in Washington wringing their hands over a two-and-a-half percent reduction?
Do you know that the coming budget will spend more than last years budget EVEN WITH the sequestration “cuts”??? Because the fact of the matter is that we will actually be spending $110 billion MORE in this budget even when the sequestration “cuts” are factored in.
I want you to understand: Democrats are literally becoming hysterical and rabid over the fear of not a 2% cut that ANY bureaucracy ought to be able to easily make – but a 2.4% cut in the rate of growth of that spending. This is another way of simply pointing out the fact that we can’t make ANY cuts of ANY kind at all.
The sequestration “cuts” are mindless, stupid and evil – which is exactly what I for one would expect from anything coming out of Obama’s White House as these sequestration cuts did – but Republicans are beginning to express a willingness to “go off the cliff” with sequestration simply because it is now glaringly obvious to anyone possessing a faculty for comprehending reality that Barack Obama will NEVER allow any other spending cuts of any kind during the next four years. And if Republicans want ANY cuts to the budget, the deficit, or the debt at ALL, this is their only chance to get them.
That’s the fact.
And the fact is that Democrats – in spite of their frequent lip service to reducing spending, reducing the deficit, reducing the debt – are shameless liars who say one thing and keep doing another. They will NEVER allow ANY spending cuts. Period.
Obama slandered George Bush for his $4 trillion debt over eight years. He has now presided over $6 trillion more in debt in only four years. Which is to say that the nation’s crushing, bankrupting, extinction debt is tripling under Obama beyond what Obama demonized Bush over.
Again, Barack Hussein Obama is a pathologically dishonest man. And this hellbound world longing for the Antichrist loves him for it.
What Obama did was load up the 2008 federal deficit with TRILLIONS of dollars in his own spending, then slanderously and dishonestly hold Bush responsible for Obama’s own wicked spending. As if it was Bush who imposed the Obama stimulus, and Bush who imposed the Obama Omnibus bill, etc. The deficit that Bush handed Obama for 2008 was $400 billion. And what Obama did was deceitfully assert that HE ended the war in Iraq – which Bush actually ended and signed the final status of forces agreement for – and that somehow without Obama the Iraq War would have gone on forever and so Obama should somehow be credited with eternal savings for ending a war that Bush actually won and ended.
And that is why this nation is utterly doomed. Either money is nothing – in which case nobody needs any more of it and Democrats are idiots for trying to redistribute the wealth like the Marxists they truly are – or money matters and our $228 trillion fiscal gap will bury us and smother this nation to death. It’s one or the other.
Our true fiscal gap was documented by the International Monetary Fund at $222 trillion as of August of last year. It is growing by nearly a trillion dollars every month. Which means it is now well over $228 trillion in unfunded liabilities that will bankrupt this nation.
And Obama is literally coming unglued at saving $84 billion in cuts not in our spending but only in our rate of growth - which is a drop of piss in a giant ocean of bloody-red debt???
Democrats won’t allow America to cut its spending in any way, shape or form. And America is going to die because of that.
The Democrat Party stands for the extinction of America. It is crushing America with lies and crushing America with debt. And America cannot survive with either scourge, let alone both.
So it should be no surprise that the same Obama administration that has gone so completely deranged predicting national disaster and even holocaust if the sequestration that Obama proposed, that Obama signed into law and that Obama threatened to use his veto to protect was put into effect is also the administration that is about to intentionally try to make those cuts as painful to as many Americans as they possibly can.
Want an example? Obama cabinent appointees are already releasing a wave of CRIMINAL illegal immigrants as a way to inflict harm with the sequestration cuts in order to say the Republicans did what in fact OBAMA did. I say “criminal” not just because it is a damn CRIME to enter the United States without going through the legal immigration process, but because the “immigrants” being released are “immigrants” who have already been convicted of crimes in Los Estados Unidos.
So basically, what Obama is saying is that you either agree with my new deal after I broke my word with you on our last deal, or else I’ll threaten you with huge numbers of criminal illegal immigrants. And according to Obama, that’s a “balanced compromise” rather than terrorist extortionism.
“President Obama has said that unless he gets a second tax hike in eight weeks, he will be forced to let criminals loose on the streets, the meat at your grocery store won’t be inspected and emergency responders will be unable to do their jobs,” Cantor said in his statement.
“These are false choices. We are faced with the negative effects of the sequester because Democrats have not been able to take even the smallest step towards controlling spending.”
False choices have been all we’ve had for Obama’s entire presidency.
Could Obama lay off his scheduling secretary so he’d have a harder time going on a golfing vacation with Tiger Woods just before coming back to say that what clearly wasn’t a big deal before he went on vacation is suddenly about to kill America if he doesn’t get his way? Yes, but it’s so much more fun for Obama to fire firefighters and police officers instead. Because that’s just the kind of wicked man he is.
When the beast comes, there is not a doubt in my mind that he will honor Barack Hussein Obama as the man who made his arrival possible.
And the American people will burn in hell for all eternity as a result of both of these wicked men.
