Today Obama went to FEMA to thank them for working without pay. That was his pretense, anyway. Actually, he went to get in front of a microphone and demonize Republicans some more.
Here’s a short article that sums up the situation quite nicely:
Obama thanks FEMA for work during shutdown

WASHINGTON (AP) – President Barack Obama is thanking workers at the Federal Emergency Management Agency for doing their jobs under “less than optimal circumstances” during the government shutdown.
Obama made an unannounced visit to FEMA Monday as the shutdown neared the one-week mark. Some furloughed employees at the agency were recalled last week and worked without pay to help prepare for Tropical Storm Karen.
The president said FEMA employees remain ready to respond when needed, but their jobs have been “made more difficult.” He says the shutdown may actually end up costing taxpayers more money.
Funding for FEMA was among the series of piecemeal spending bills passed by the House last week. The White House has threatened to veto the measures, saying the government should not be reopened one agency at a time.
Do you get that, stupid universe? FEMA isn’t shut down because Republicans shut them down; because REPUBLICANS FUNDED FEMA and a lot of the rest of the government. No, FEMA is shut down because Democrats who control the Senate won’t allow the House-passed bill to go forward, and because if anybody tries to fund FEMA and pay those workers, BARACK OBAMA WILL VETO IT.
THAT’S why FEMA is on furlough.
But we live in an age just before Obama implodes America, sends the world into depression and the beast of the Book of Revelation comes. And so the truth has largely been replaced by demon-possessed lies.
Said a senior administration official: “We are winning…It doesn’t really matter to us” how long the shutdown lasts “because what matters is the end result.”
Obama and Charlie Sheen have something in common: they’re not bi-polar; they are BI-WINNING.
That and the fact that they are both demonic people who have a truly psychotic worldview.
Obama has been shutting down things left and right for the sole purpose of making the shutdown as painful for as many people as he can. He’s shut down WWII memorials and things like the Lincoln Memorial that have NEVER been closed during ANY of our previous government shutdowns:
The Park Service appears to be closing streets on mere whim and caprice. The rangers even closed the parking lot at Mount Vernon, where the plantation home of George Washington is a favorite tourist destination. That was after they barred the new World War II Memorial on the Mall to veterans of World War II. But the government does not own Mount Vernon; it is privately owned by the Mount Vernon Ladies’ Association. The ladies bought it years ago to preserve it as a national memorial. The feds closed access to the parking lots this week, even though the lots are jointly owned with the Mount Vernon ladies. The rangers are from the government, and they’re only here to help.
“We’ve been told – by OBAMA through his federal government demon-possessed bureaucrats – to make life as difficult for people as they possibly can.” Quote. And you’re damn right it’s absolutely disgusting.
Do you know that at all of these memorials that Obama has shut down for no other reason that to be petty and vindictive is that he’s using more security guards to keep the American people OUT of their monuments than were being used to just keep them open???
Obama tried to shut down the Army-Navy football game – again, for the first time EVER during one of our many government shutdowns - just because he’s a petty tyrant and that’s the kind of cheap trick that a petty tyrant does:
ANNAPOLIS, Md. — On a beautiful fall day, the parking lot at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium was filled with fans and tailgate parties. A record crowd of 38,225 showed up Saturday for the football game between Navy and Air Force.
Navy athletic director Chet Gladchuk looked at the activity around him and smiled. After tumultuous week, he was right where he was supposed to be Saturday.
The Air Force-Navy game was in serious jeopardy on Tuesday, when the Department of Defense suspended athletic competition at the nation’s service academies because of the U.S. government shutdown. At that point, Gladchuk took action to convince the DOD that the game should be played because it was funded by non-appropriated money.
His effort paid off. Late Wednesday night, the DOD relented. [...]
“There was some concern, but I was hopeful it would happen because they’ve never canceled a Navy football game during a government shutdown,” Lang said.
“Navy athletics is privately funded,” Miles said. “The idea of them trying to cancel a game between two service academies is appalling.”
There’s another word to use to describe Obama’s thug tactics in addition to “disgusting”: “appalling.”
Obama the thug has his White House thugs and federal government thugs frantically trying to close down absolutely everything they can possibly close down just to hurt as many people as they can. EVEN WHEN FEDERAL FUNDS AREN’T EVEN BEING USED. Just so Obama can falsely blame Republicans even though the only part of government they basically HAVEN’T funded is demonic ObamaCare fiasco.
I recently pointed out a few other examples of just how positively VILE Obama and his Democrat stooge-thugs have been during this period.
But here’s another one that is just so utterly beyond “appalling” or “disgusting” that “vile” hardly is enough to describe it: Obama closed down the Amber alert system created to find kidnapped children before a pedophile can rape them.
And if it comes to it, believe me, Obama is thug enough and petty enough to order this, too, joke or no joke. He’s just that demonic.
But you still haven’t grasped the true, genuine evil that is Barack Obama. He’s actively trying to sabotage our economy just so he can blame the other party for what HE did. Democrats are accusing Republicans of being “economic terrorists.” But let’s take a look at our “Economic Terrorist-in-CHIEF”:
Washington (AFP) – President Barack Obama sent Wall Street a blunt warning Wednesday that it should be very worried about a political crisis that has shut down the government and could trigger a US debt default.
Obama said he was “exasperated” by the budget impasse in Congress, in an interview with CNBC apparently designed to pressure Republicans by targeting the financial community moments after markets closed.
The president then met Republican and Democratic leaders for their first talks since the US government money’s ran out and it slumped into a shutdown now well into its second day.
But few informed observers held out much hope for a sudden breakthrough.
Obama was asked in the interview whether Washington was simply gripped by just the latest in a series of political and fiscal crises which reliably get solved at the last minute.
In unusually frank comments on issues that could sway markets, Obama warned that investors should be worried.
“This time’s different. I think they should be concerned,” Obama said, in comments which may roil global markets.
“When you have a situation in which a faction is willing potentially to default on US government obligations, then we are in trouble,” Obama said.
Obama said he would not negotiate with Republicans on budget matters until House lawmakers pass a temporary financing bill to reopen federal operations and raised the $16.7 trillion dollar debt ceiling.
This is the bottom line: in a couple of weeks, America faces a debt ceiling issue.
Keep in mind that if Republicans act like Obama, they will vote against EVER raising the damn debt ceiling. Remember what Obama said when he was a Senator to demonize George W. Bush???
“The problem is, is that the way Bush has done it over the last eight years is to take out a credit card from the Bank of China in the name of our children, driving up our national debt from $5 trillion for the first 42 presidents – #43 added $4 trillion by his lonesome, so that we now have over $9 trillion of debt that we are going to have to pay back — $30,000 for every man, woman and child. That’s irresponsible. It’s unpatriotic.”
“The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. … Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that ‘the buck stops here. Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.”
That was when it was $9 trillion. IT’S VERY NEARLY DOUBLE THAT NOW, THANKS TO OBAMA’S UTTER DEPRAVITY.
HOW WAS IT “IRRESPONSIBLE” AND “UNPATRIOTIC” TO INCREASE THE DEBT CEILING WHEN IT WAS $9 TRILLION BUT NOT SO NOW WHEN THE DEBT IS 17 TRILLION??? Other than that it isn’t fascist when Obama does it???
You need to realize something: the real crisis of this debt ceiling impasse is that America could find itself unable to make the interest payments on the debt – which would be a default on America’s perfect credit.
Do you know why that could happen? Do you know who would be entirely to blame if that does happen?
Barack Hussein Obama, thug, liar and traitor, that’s who.
Our interest payments on the debt amount to about $25 billion a month. That sounds like a lot, but during any shutdown or debt ceiling impasse, the United States still raises far more in taxes every single month. And it would just be a matter of arranging to prioritize the payments on the debt and to assure the credit markets that we will be doing so in order to maintain confidence.
But Obama doesn’t want that. He wants to create as much pain and misery and destruction as he can. Because he wants to trot out to every single dishonest propagandist mainstream media microphone and slander the Republican Party for doing what OBAMA DID.
There is absolutely no chance of a true default if Obama does what any leader who isn’t completely morally insane would do. It is entirely under Obama’s authority to make those interest payments. And to complete the picture, the Republicans have already approved this and other payments. Absolutely nobody but Obama would be to blame.
If the United States defaults on its interest payments and creates a market meltdown, it is because Obama – who could easily avoid that merely by making the interest payments that are his authority to make – wants to create a market meltdown.
And the fact of the matter is that Barack Obama is an evil enough man to make that happen.
Barack Obama has rabidly refused to negotiate. Literally, he is the first president in the history of the republic to refuse to negotiate – in spite of his many lies to the contrary. In fact, the debt ceiling has been raised 63 times since 1979 – and fully 27 of those times, the debt ceiling was directly linked to other issues. For instance, in 1973, Ted Kennedy and Walter Mondale – both top national Democrats – attempted to link the debt ceiling to campaign finance reform.
And in every single case up to now, the president was enough of a grown-up to NEGOTIATE AND BE WILLING TO COMPROMISE.
I am so sick of Obama’s and his administration’s constant spewing of outright lies.
If the Republicans follow the example set by the president, they will likewise refuse to negotiate and allow the country to slide off a cliff.
